Police arrest two in Escondido shooting By Tony Cagala

ESCONDIDO — Police Chief Craig Carter announced late last week that two arrests were made in the case of Catherine Kennedy, a 55-year-old woman that was killed earlier this month by a stray bullet while driving home from a church event. Police said a 24-year-old male and a 16-year-old male were arrested for murder on Wednesday. The 24-yearold, identified as Dionicio Torrez, was arraigned at the Vista County Court House last week. On Monday, the 16-year-old was arraigned at the juvenile courthouse. Police believe the 24-yearold was the sole shooter, according to a press release. The arrests came a day after Kevin Kennedy, Catherine’s widower, and more than a hundred people gath-

ered in front of City Hall last week to pay respects to Catherine in a candlelight vigil. “We would like to commend the Escondido Police Department on these arrests and ask that you respect our privacy as we continue through the grieving process in light of this new information,” said Kevin in a statement. According to Escondido Police, Catherine was driving on East Grand Avenue a little after 9 p.m. on March 7 when a bullet hit her in the head. She was still alive when emergency personnel transported her to Palomar Hospital where she later died. Witnesses had described a situation where two men were firing at each other from opposite sides of the street. However, as

the investigation has progressed, police now believe there was only one person firing a weapon. Carter said on Tuesday that it was too early in the investigation to speculate on what the suspect might have been shooting at that night. He also said the public had provided a lot of tips. Carter also said the department had reallocated extra resources to help in the investigation. “We have combined units, so we have some units that handle specific areas, specialized units…so basically, doubled the force,” he said. It is suspected that the shooter is a gang member based on witness reports at the scene and graffiti that was discovered in the area, according to Carter, though

he wouldn’t say which gang might be involved. May Kennedy, Kevin’s sister, stood facing traffic during the vigil with a sign that read: “In the U.S. 325 million people; 300 million guns; why?” “We’ve got too many guns, we’ve got too many drugs. Too many guns get in the wrong hands of too many people,” Mary said. “The idea this was a random shot into a car, killing someone — I mean, that’s just a sign there’s just too many guns being bought. They’re too available; the access to guns is too easy.” Mary said religion was Catherine and Kevin’s bond. The two had met at the Church of St. Timothy in TURN TO ARREST ON A14

REGION — If there was one prevailing theme from the hosts of panelists speaking to city and county officials, alternative energy stakeholders and others about community choice energy in a Rancho Bernardo conference room on March 10, it was this: why wait? Many of the leaders present — from Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear to Councilwoman Tasha Boerner Horvath and Solana Beach City Manager Greg Wade — are from cities that are actively exploring community choice energy, the informal name for community choice aggregation, the process in which a jurisdiction forms an entity that buys power on the open market, choosing the source of the power based on the community’s choice. For example, the community could choose that it wants all of its power from solar or wind farms, or it wants the most cost effective energy source possible. The major energy companies such as Sempra, San

Diego Gas & Electric and PG&E in Northern California would still deliver the power, but the community would have control over where it received the power from. CCAs, or CCEs as they are known for short, have emerged in Northern California and one city in Southern California, Lancaster, also has a CCA. But much of Southern California is still wading in the discussion and exploration phase. At the San Diego Community Choice Forum, dozens of panelists echoed the same message — be patient, be prudent, but also be assertive. R. Rex Paris, a Republican mayor of Lancaster, Calif., who was the forum’s keynote speaker, said that cities needed to act now, not later. Lancaster’s community choice model has become a darling in the industry, as it has propelled the high desert community to “net zero” status, which means that it produces more solar power than it consumes, which has also TURN TO ENERGY ON A14

ACA, immigration, border wall part of Issa town hall By Ruarri Serpa

OCEANSIDE — For over two hours, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) fielded questions from a largely contentious crowd at a town hall in Oceanside earlier this month. Questions centered around reforming the Affordable Care Act, with many people demanding direct answers from Issa about his position on the proposed Republican legislation to repeal the healthcare bill and replace it. “If the Congressional Budget Office says that costs will go up, and less people will be covered, will you support it?” asked Steve Linke, of Carlsbad.

“You know…” Issa began, before being overwhelmed by people chanting, “Yes or No.” Ultimately he said he “doesn’t want to spend the same money, to cover less people.” The town hall was held in two sessions at the Junior Seau Beach Community Center to accommodate the large demand to attend a town hall. Issa hasn’t held a town hall meeting in the district since last fall, and activists have been protesting outside his Vista office every week for the past few months demanding to speak with him. In February, he spoke for 90 minutes to a crowd that gathered outside his office, but that evening he skipped a meeting with those activists, along with labor groups and healthcare advocates, organized in Vista. About 400 people attended each hour-long session Saturday morning, and most people seemed to be supportive of the Affordable Care Act, and opponents of President Donald Trump. Many in attendance held “Agree” and “Disagree” signs, which they held up throughout Issa’s answers, but most of Issa’s answers were interrupted by jeers and chants. Issa answered about 20 questions, ranging from the Republican healthcare plan, to Russia, immigration and a wall on the Mexican border. Regarding Russia, Issa said the statute providing for a special prosecutor no longer existed, to which the audience shouted, “Do your job.” When the same question came up in the second half of the town hall, Issa said he would push the deputy attorney general in charge of the investigation to be open and independent. He added that the “cha-

os” Russia creates in America cannot continue. “It is an existential threat to democracy, if we don’t stop it,” he said. When asked about his support for the recent ban on immigration from six predominantly Muslim countries, Issa said, “denying refugees was a shameful part of our history that cannot be repeated.” On immigration, Issa framed it as an economic issue for American workers, but was not supportive of a new wall along the border. One notable exchange came at the end of the first session, when Mike Levin, an Orange County lawyer and Democratic candidate for office, pressed Issa on his support for protecting the environment, and received loud cheers for his question. Retired Col. Doug Applegate, the Democratic candidate who narrowly lost against Issa in 2016 and has promised to run again in 2018, was outside the recreation center throughout the town hall. He dismissed Levin’s appearance Saturday, as a coordinated stunt. “You think that was a coincidence?” Applegate said. While the protesting continued outside the hall after the event, Linke, the Carlsbad voter who asked about Issa’s support for the Republican healthcare replacement said his respect for Issa increased after the town hall, even if his question wasn’t answered directly. “I was pleased to hear Mr. Issa at least make that qualified commitment, including the implied trust of the CBO score. However, he is probably leaving himself an escape,” Linke said. “My respect for Mr. Issa increased as a result of the town halls, and I found I agree with him on some points, although I still disagree with him on many issues.”

Family seeks VA assistance for veteran’s rehab By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — The family of a veteran who suffered a traumatic brain injury earlier this month, which doctors believe is linked to his service in Iraq and Afghanistan, are imploring the Veterans Administration to pay for his long-term care. Sean Reed, 35, who served in the U.S. Army for seven years, suffered a seizure on March 4 that caused him to fall down and hit his head. He was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego where he remains in critical but stable condition due to the seizure and the head blow. Sean’s father, Phil Reed, said that Scripps doctors informed them that the VA was going to pay for his hospital stay, but would not pay for the long-term rehabilitation that doctors believe he will need in the days, months and years to come. This, they said, is unacceptable. “We are trying to advocate for Sean to get him the care that he needs,” Phil said. “We believe the VA should step up to the plate to help one of its own.” Phil said that Sean, who attended Digueño Middle School and La Costa Canyon High School and was a competitive gymnast throughout his youth and

Vista moves forward on medical marijuana ordinance By Ruarri Serpa

VISTA — The City Council last week signaled its support for an ordinance that would allow the sale and delivery of medical marijuana. City staff will now draft the new rules, which could come back for final approval by April. Councilman Joe Green initiated the item after a petition was circulated that called for allowing commercial marijuana

in the city, and after he saw how Vistans voted on Proposition 64, which legalized recreational marijuana. “It’s a clear indication Vista voters have a favorable opinion on marijuana,” Green said. “I can only assume medical marijuana on the ballot would pass with bigger margins.” Though residents are allowed to grow up to six plants, carry and transport marijuana, the city

prohibits all commercial marijuana operations through its zoning ordinance. In response to the city doubling down on medical marijuana last year, medical marijuana supporters put together an initiative that would allow commercial operations in the city’s commercial, industrial, and mixed-use areas.

During his military service, Sean served two tours in Iraq and in Afghanistan. While in Afghanistan, according to his family, insurgents attacked his Humvee with an improvised explo-

sive device, killing several soldiers in his unit and cutting off his ear. He was flown to Germany to have his ear reattached and then was transported to Alaska where he awaited to be discharged, but was convinced to reenlist for a second term after, according to the family, it was determined there was TURN TO VETERAN ON A14

We need to protect our family-owned restaurants By Chris Duggan

Small, independent and family-owned restaurants are an integral part of Encinitas. They help make up our character and are a part of our local community. The California Restaurant Association (CRA) represents nearly 22,000 eating establishments throughout California. We know our members use foam foodservice containers for two key reasons: affordability and effectiveness. Foam keeps hot food and drinks hot without burning your hands and it keeps cold food and drinks cold without creating condensation. In addition, it keeps costs down so small restaurant owners can continue paying employee wages and keeping prices low for loyal customers. CRA was strongly opposed to the ban on foam foodservice containers last year. We know that bans do not work and that they only penalize momand-pop restaurants. It was discouraging when the city denied CRA’s recycling plan, Renew Encinitas, and instead moved forward with banning foam foodservice. We thank the City of Encinitas for thinking of the family-owned restaurants when they sponsored a program that reimburses restaurants up to $400 for switching from foam foodservice. And, we applaud Mayor Catherine Blakespear for encouraging restaurants to take advantage of the program. However, we feel it is important to point out

It’s time for a sane sanctuary city compromise California Focus By Thomas D. Elias

D

espite heavy pressure and some almost casual financial threats from President Trump, there is no need as yet for abandonment of the humane aspects in immigration “sanctuary” laws now on the books in 276 American cities, counties and states. But almost two years after the seemingly random killing of a 32-year-old woman on San Francisco’s touristy Pier 14, not far from the landmark Ferry Building, there is surely a need for some compromise. While it’s true there has been no similar slaying since then by an undocumented immigrant protected by sanctuary regulations, it is entirely possible that other seven-time felons like Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez lurk in some sanctuary locales, ready to kill another innocent like Kathryn Steinle, who died when a bullet from a stolen gun ricocheted off concrete pavement. But this is an unproven assumption, not evidence enough by itself to change everything humane about sanctuary city policing. Just now, Trump has officials of almost every sanctuary city, campus and other place stiff-backed, ready to resist all change. And yet, today’s policies are far from perfect. In fact, a letter written by Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein just after the Steinle killing ought to be getting attention today. Feinstein, as mayor of San Francisco for most of the 1980s, accepted her city’s charitably-intended sanctuary law. Now she seems to be, as she often has been, one of the very few adults in the room. Her letter reminded that the intent of sanctuary laws is not to protect repeat crimi-

nals like Lopez-Sanchez, but to prevent splitting families via deportations and to allow otherwise law-abiding undocumented immigrants to live without much fear. “I strongly believe that an undocumented individual convicted of multiple felonies and with a detainer request from ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) should not have been released,” Feinstein wrote to Mayor Ed Lee, her successor four times removed. “The tragic death…could have

So the sane move now is for sanctuary jurisdictions still doing it to stop refusing ICE detainers. been avoided if the Sheriff’s Department had notified ICE prior to the release of (Lopez-Sanchez), which would have allowed ICE to remove him from the country.” Had that happened, of course, there is every likelihood Lopez-Sanchez would have returned to this country, and quickly. He did that after five prior deportations. Even so, Steinle would be alive today. Feinstein’s eminently sane solution: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Ana and other sanctuary cities like Miami; Austin, Tex.; New York City; Boston and Baltimore should join the Department of Homeland Security’s Priority Enforcement Program, set up in 2014 via an executive order from then-President Barack Obama, an action Trump shows little inclination to reverse.

Doing that, Feinstein said, would have sanctuary cities notify ICE before releasing illegals with long criminal records. She noted that Los Angeles County supervisors in 2015 asked their sheriff to join that program. This makes eminent sense. For in all the arguments at the time cities passed their sanctuary laws, no one seriously contended foreign felons should be allowed the freedom of American streets. But San Francisco and other cities have been slow to join. It’s really up to politicians like city councilmen, country supervisors and mayors to instruct their top cops to act. They often don’t make this move because of a naïve belief that doing so would in effect make them immigration agents. They don’t want ordinary cops questioning mine-run suspects on their immigration status. But Lopez-Sanchez was not a mere suspect. His prior crimes were known; he still has not performed a discernible constructive act in this country. The sane thing is for jailers to contact federal officials when folks like him are nearly ready for release so immigration officers can take them beyond the border. Would that be inhumane? Or have repeat felons given up any right to stay in this country? So the sane move now is for sanctuary jurisdictions still doing it to stop refusing ICE detainers. Keep up that practice and there may be more murders like Steinle’s, which would not only be senseless, but also provide an excuse for Trump to intensify pressure on sanctuary jurisdictions.

that switching to alternative packaging is not an easy task for many small restaurants. As pointed out by Michael Daffern, the manager of the Original Pancake House, “the alternative products cost much more, aren’t as effective as keeping food insulated.” While a $400 reimbursement may appear to

I would also like to point out that the city just announced this program to restaurant owners in early February, giving them until Feb. 28 to receive up to $400, after that the reimbursement keeps lowering. It is a known fact that owners of small

Switching to alternative packaging will cost restaurants double or triple of what they are currently paying for foam foodservice. A foam hot cup that normally costs three cents will triple in price for an alternative product. A 4-cent foam plate will increase to 9 cents for a plastic plate. While these increases may sound small, they are substantial to restaurants that buy in large quantities — in some cases adding on tens of thousands of dollars a year in extra costs. Many of the family-owned restaurants here in Encinitas are already operating on razor-thin

restaurants spend every possible minute at their restaurant. It is a 24-hour, seven days a week job. So taking the time to apply for a program doesn’t come easily and can’t just happen right away. It is important for the city to understand that it is the small family-owned restaurants who were unfairly targeted through this ban. Therefore, the California Restaurant Association encourages our city leaders to revisit the ban and rather embrace a more comprehensive recycling program that will actually reduce waste, reduce littering, and not harm small family-owned restaurants. Chris Duggan is with the San Diego Chapter of the California Restaurant Association.

County looking to outsource animal services By Bianca Kaplanek

REGION — The County’s recent decision to possibly outsource animal services could impact four North County coastal cities, but to what extent is currently unclear. “We have been starting to look into our options but it is too early to know what we will decide on,” Del Mar City Manager Scott Huth said. “There are some good prospects out there and this could be a positive change for both the county and Del Mar.” Dan King, assistant city manager for Solana Beach, said officials there are monitoring the situation and “keeping all options open at this time.” “There is still over a year left on the current contract and we will keep … the dialogue open with the county and all other

participating agencies,” he said. A representative from Encinitas said it is too early in the process to comment. The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously March 14 to issue a request

for interest to see if any qualified private or public organizations are interested in taking over all or some of the responsibilities of the Department of Animal Services (DAS). “This is just the begin-

ning,” board chairwoman Dianne Jacob said, noting that an independent review last year identified “key areas of improvement needed in the department.” That, combined with the retirement of longtime DAS director Dawn Danielson, “gives us an opportunity to see if there are other entities that can provide services to unincorporated areas,” which Jacob said account for only 30 percent of the department budget. “The goal is pretty simple to me — to provide the best services at the lowest cost,” she said, adding that the first step is “to see if we can do better for the animals and better for the taxpayers.” According to state law, cities and counties must provide certain animal serTURN TO SERVICES ON A6

Clock tower relocated on fairgrounds By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — It was the best of times for the Don Diego clock tower when officials at the Del Mar Fairgrounds revealed its new home just outside the front gate of the stateowned facility and not far from a statute of its namesake. “What a fitting location it is,” fairgrounds General Manager Tim Fennell said at the March 14 unveiling ceremony. Everyone driving by on Jimmy Durante Boulevard, coming to the fair or using the main entrance will see the clock tower, he added. Families will be able to take their picture or meet in front of it. “And the fairgrounds will continue its commitment to the spirit of Don Diego by hosting a grand party known as the San Diego County Fair,” Fennell said. “This is front and center on the property,” added Russ Penniman, president of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which governs the facility. “We charged the staff with finding a place for it and they did an excellent job. “We also had discussions about taking the tiles off and placing them somewhere on the fairgrounds,” Penniman said. “But this was the best way to preserve the spirit of Don Diego because everyone can see it. And it’s the first time the clock has functioned in a lot of years.” Don Diego Alvarado, whose family had a large land grant in the Del Mar area in late 1800s, was known for his grand parties and was regarded as the local symbol of a gracious host, Fennell said. In 1947 he was declared the official greeter and host of the Del Mar Fair, as it was known at the time. From that time until his death in 1984, actor Tommy Hernandez portrayed Diego and

“played his part to a tee, promoting the fair as its goodwill ambassador,” Fennell said. The 27-foot clock tower debuted at the 1954 fair. It was centrally located along the main fairgrounds avenue west of O’Brien Hall, north of Bing Crosby Hall and south of the Plaza de Mexico. For decades it served as a meeting place for fairgoers, especially when they became separated from family or friends. “Unfortunately, Father Time catches up to all of us and the Don Diego clock tower is no exception,” Fennell said. “Its support base was no longer functional and it was becoming potentially unsafe.” This past December fair board members agreed to demolish the base, a move planned years ago as part of a master improvement plan. The structure was built in 1953 using a futuristic design known as Googie architecture, which originated in Southern California about a decade TURN TO CLOCK TOWER ON A6

Hunter holds town hall By Rebecca Sykes

RAMONA — Immigration, border protection and health care were the main topics discussed at Congressmen Duncan Hunter’s (R-Alpine) town hall meeting on March 11. According to the Sheriff’s Department, an estimated 1,000 people showed up to the Ramona Mainstage for Hunter’s first town hall of the year. Though only 300 members of the public were allowed into the meeting due to the size of the venue. Constituents were able to watch a live video stream of the event at Collier Park. Before the town hall began, people waiting in line to attend were given pieces of paper to write their name, address and question for Hunter. “I was hoping people would ask questions out loud rather than in writing,” said Patricia Kearney of Lakeside. For Kearney and other concerned constituents, they were given the opportunity to ask their question aloud. Roughly 10 questions were asked, mostly due to the amount of booing and chants against Hunter throughout the event. Hunter, who criticized President Donald Trump’s first travel ban, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, said at the town hall that he was in support of the President’s new ban. “I full-heartedly support

Trump’s executive order,” Hunter said. Hunter also voiced support for Trump’s planned border wall, which brought audience members to their feet in opposition. Once the topic of health care began, Hunter stated he believes the GOP’s replacement plan for the Affordable Health Care Act will make insurance cheaper and accessible. “I don’t believe in guaranteed healthcare. I believe in guaranteed access to healthcare that people can afford,” Hunter said. He added, “Once you get rid of government mandates, health care gets way less expensive and insurance will be less. We’re not guaranteeing health care for everyone. We’re guaranteeing access to health care for everyone.” Daunte Costatino expressed concern to the proposed health care plan as being too expensive for people, despite access to it being provided. Hunter said that he would be hosting more town halls in the future, though no dates have yet been announced. “I don’t know if you could tell this,” Hunter said. “I enjoyed this. I know you’re yelling at me. But I’m telling you what I think…What makes this great is that we’re able to talk and yell and talk and yell and chant but that’s what makes our country great.”

vices in unincorporated areas. For example, health and safety code requirements mandate maintenance of a pound system and a rabies control program. In 1998 DAS began providing services to Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Santee, Poway, San Diego, San Marcos and Escondido. The latter two opted out in 2003 and began receiving services from the San Diego Humane Society. Poway followed suit two years later. Since then the remaining six cities have contracted with the county for shelter management, field services such as rescuing injured strays and enforcing animal cruelty and neglect laws, veterinary services and dog licensing, which includes issuing and maintaining records and rabies vaccinations. To meet its requirements the county operates shelters in Carlsbad, San Diego and Bonita and con-

Breakfast with the bunny SAN MARCOS — The city of San Marcos kicks off the spring season with its annual holiday breakfast and egg scramble from 8 to 10 a.m. April 15. The festive morning features “Breakfast with Peter Cottontail” to be held inside the Williams Barn in Walnut Grove Park, 1952 Sycamore Drive. This early morning Breakfast with the Bunny, of pancakes, sausage and eggs, will be prepared by the Life and Eagle Scouts of the Kah-Shinni Chapter Order of the Arrow Boy Scouts of America. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 for adults and $4 for youth 10 and

under. Come early to have your picture taken with Peter Cottontail, create free craft projects and enjoy carnival games and party jumps. At 10:15 a.m., immediately following the breakfast, toddlers through fifth graders are invited to the community “Spring Egg Scramble” where 10,000 prize-filled eggs will be scattered throughout the park. Each child should bring a bag or basket. Families are encouraged to come early and enjoy carnival games. Suggested donation is $5 per family. Families can register now by calling (760) 744-9000 or going online to san-marcos.net.

sure, but supporters would continue to gather signatures. At Tuesday’s meeting, about 150 people showed up with signs and stickers calling for an end to “the war on medical marijuana.” About 30 people spoke in favor of allowing it, and to say that after Californians gave their approval to recreational marijuana, the decision was now about safe access for patients. One man spoke about the need for his son, who uses a wheelchair and suffers from seizures, to have

access to medical marijuana, and experts who can help identify what types work best for different conditions. “He needs safe access. There is one type to stop seizures, and I’ve been lucky enough to find someone who is knowledgeable,” he said. Resident Robert Gore said people are giving their money to black market businesses to get their medicine, only to have their tax dollars used to shut them down. A small group, all from

the North Coastal Prevention Coalition, opposed the initiative and any plan to allow medical marijuana. “I’m concerned, because decades of research shows increased access leads to greater problems,” Erica Leary said. “Who gets access is not under the city’s purview. Now anyone over 21 can grow, carry and transport it. Storefronts are about making money.” Councilwoman Amanda Rigby said she was also concerned about marijuana still being illegal at the federal level, and what

that could mean for the city. Deputy Mayor John Franklin agreed, and said he couldn’t vote for any law that, “violates the Constitution and the supreme law of the land.” Other concerns from council members included how businesses can safely store their money when federal policy prohibits marijuana operations from using banks, and how the city can tax sales, and apply zoning requirements consistent with other commercial and industrial

uses. Green said that the initiative being circulated doesn’t address these issues, and also lowers the penalty for violating the city’s ordinances to an infraction, were his main reasons for bringing the item to the council, and proposing an alternative ordinance to the initiative. Ultimately, Mayor Judy Ritter and Councilman John Aguilera agreed. “I have to listen to the people that put me here. That’s why I will consider this.” Aguilera said.

tracts with other qualified vendors to provide services when necessary. The current contract, which requires a one-year notice for termination, expires June 30, 2018. “As part of the county’s continued practice of reviewing services for consolidation, outsourcing, re-engineering and elimination … we routinely examine the governing legislation mandating certain services,” April Heinze, deputy chief administrative officer for the community services group, said. “Given the approaching expiration of these agreements we have an opportunity to explore alternative service delivery options and to improve the economy and efficiency of those services,” she added. Since 2013 the county has seen a 20 percent increase in its operating budget, with the most significant cost going to personnel due to retirement contributions, additional staff required to meet customer needs and projected costs for expanding shelter hours

to include Sundays, Heinze said. The budget for this fiscal year is approximately $17.6 million. Of that about $11.5 million comes from the contract cities and unincorporated areas and $3 million is from the county’s general fund. Another $2.1 million comes from license and shelter fees, which have remained low to avoid negative effects such as discouraging adoptions from shelters. Gary Weitzman, president of the San Diego Humane Society, was the lone speaker who supported the decision to look at outsourcing. With multiple locations, two dozen “humane law enforcement officers,” a recovery and rescue group that’s mobilized during times of crisis and diversion programs to keep animals out of shelters, he said the time is “appropriate” for his organization to “assume the work” of DAS “and explore how we can benefit the county with more efficiencies and potentially lower cost.” “We feel that we would be a very viable option to as-

sume those services in San Diego County,” Weitzman said. But four other speakers disagreed, including representatives from Service Employees Union International Local 221. David Garcias, the organization’s president, said outsourcing is “tantamount to getting rid of your public safety.” He said when law enforcement officers call for help they want a trained professional. “Please don’t jeopardize our public safety,” he said. “There are some things that should not be for profit and taking care of at-risk animals is certainly one of them,” resident Cynthia Jordan said. “We all pay taxes. I pay a lot of taxes. I would pay even more taxes if that’s what it takes to be able to expect that the homeless animals of San Diego County and the city will be well cared for during their shelter stays.” “Groups of people have been working together for decades to establish longterm relationships that help to improve the safety and best interests of all of the cats, dogs and other

animals that come into the shelter services on a daily basis,” said Adelle Schmitt, president of Dogs Für Days, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that rescues canines from public shelters. “There is no replacement for the kinds of relationships that exist between administrators and local rescue organizers and leaders within the rescue community,” she added. “The Humane Society is unable to achieve this level of cooperation because frankly, they don’t have the long history of relationships with the rescue community that the Department of Animal Services does.” Schmitt said outsourcing is “demoralizing” and “essentially a vote of no confidence to the Department of Animal Services.” “Not true at all,” Jacob said. “The employees in the department have done an excellent job.” Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, whose District 3 includes Del Mar, Solana Beach and Encinitas, agreed. “Exploring outsourcing is not, by any means, a fault of the department,” she

said. “I’m really proud of the services that we’re currently providing. I’m really proud of our staff members. “My concern is about the sustainability of the program that we’re currently offering,” Gaspar added. “As we’re seeing personnel costs continue to rise … it’s unclear whether we’ll be able to keep the fees low, and if we raise the adoption fees … that could have a significant impact on the ability to adopt more animals out of the shelter system, which I feel quite passionately about because all of my animals have been from the shelter system. “The increased cost can also threaten the level of service that’s being provided,” Gaspar continued. “So I think it’s a smart business decision to look at the options of outsourcing these services. But I will never be supportive of something that lowers the level of service, the quality of care, the safety component.” If there is sufficient interest, the county will issue requests for qualifications and proposals and then begin negotiations, keeping supervisors updated throughout the process.

Its central location was considered prime real estate for potential vendors, who committed to about $300,000 in rent annually for the site just during the fair. “Thanks to the commitment of our board of directors … and the staff of the 22nd DAA, preserving the clock tower became a priority,”

Fennell said. Staff members recommended 52 possible sites, including the infield and arena area. “This location just fit so much better than the others,” Penniman said.

T

he days and days of rain this year set off some subconscious signal in elementary school kids. Maybe it’s the pollen count. Maybe it’s pheromones. Maybe it’s mildew on the brain. Something is different. My theory is that none of these kids have ever seen that much rain, and they feared the sun would never shine again. For a Southern California child, that’s some serious stuff. So when the sun did come out, they went right into a state of hysterical joy. I began to notice every child seemed to be almost vibrating. They are shouting, hopping, jumping, climbing on bookshelves and my desk and leaping from anything taller than six inches. If there is something on display, it gets disassembled. As they stand in line waiting for check-out, they either turn my resonant desk into a drum set, or turn their book into a percussion instrument. The strangest phenomenon was a shift in the mood of the girls. Every day for a week, I had at least one in every class, fiercely reporting that Susie or Dylan or Carrie took too many books, sat in the wrong chair, said she was going to cut in line or committed some other insufferable offence. And something had to be done about it — right now. They each seemed determined to not only rock the boat, but throw someone overboard. There was perceived injustice at every turn and these young ladies were not going to stand for it. As I asked each one why whatever Susie or Dylan may or may not have done was of any concern to them, they were flummoxed. I got a lot of dirty looks. Further signs can be seen at recess, as one child chases another, usually at a speed they are not supposed to go, in places they are not supposed to be, with crystal-shattering shrieks for sound effects. The playground monitors have been filing by with glassy-eyed stares. Every teacher agreed that there had been a definite energy/attitude spike. I remain in awe of how they just handle it and move ahead. Some admit they are spring-smitten, too. I mean, it is practically summer, right?

O’side teen’s goal: Saving animals from slaughter By Rebecca Sykes

OCEANSIDE — While most 15-year-olds are concerned with earning their learner’s permits to drive, Olivia Harmon is more concerned about saving farm animals from slaughter. Harmon, an Oceanside resident and sophomore at Oceanside High School, started by rescuing cats and dogs, and then moving on to help hurt birds and lizards by rehabilitating them. About a year ago, Harmon rescued her first farm animal, a 300-pound pig named Indie that was going to be sent to the slaughterhouse. “After I rescued her, I knew that’s what I was going to do for the rest of my life,” said Harmon. Harmon created an Instagram account, Happy Hooves Rescue, after saving Indie, as a means for people to reach out, alerting her of any animals in need. So far, Harmon has saved eight farm animals, and she’s in the process of rescuing four more, which

end up living at various animal sanctuaries. “I started this whole rescue mission because

animals deserve so much better than how we treat them,” said Harmon. “When you really sit down

and meet the animals you’d normally consume on a daily bases, you realize just how much personality they have. The thousands of farm animals (people) abuse and slaughter each day are no different from our normal everyday companies like dogs and cats.” Some of the animals she’s rescued have been found on Craigslist, or at auctions. “I make deals with people by giving them gift cards to a store of their choice, buying tools like welding machines or tool boxes in exchange for the animal,” said Harmon. “Sometimes if I let the owner know what I do for the animals, they will give them to me free of charge since they would be going to a good home, but sadly most people don’t care (about the animals).” While Harmon used to eat meat on a regular basis, she became a vegetarian at the age of 11 and has recently transitioned to a vegan lifestyle. “After doing more research and watching the

documentary ‘Cowspiracy,’ on Netflix, I learned that not only was my diet affecting me and the animals in a positive way, but it was also benefiting the earth,” said Harmon. Harmon’s family also lives a meat-free lifestyle and assists Harmon by occasionally transporting the animals she rescues to safety. Harmon has plans to buy a lot of land and open up her own animal sanctuary in the future. She is currently in the process of making her rescue business a nonprofit organization so she will be able to rescue more animals, while educating others on compassion towards animals. “Animals are important to me because they have so much to give,” she said. “They don’t judge you on the way you look or what kind of expensive items you have, they just want to be loved and (give) love back.” Harmon has a gofundme account to help raise funds to rescue more animals.

Vista weighs moving to voting districts after lawsuit threat By Ruarri Serpa

VISTA — Facing the threat of a lawsuit that alleges voting rights violations, Vista will explore creating districts for electing city council members. A letter from Malibu-based attorney Kevin Shenkman says that the city violates the voting rights of Latino voters by electing council members “at-large,” a system where the whole city votes for candidates, and the top vote-getters win the election. Shenkman threatened to sue the city if it didn’t voluntarily change the system. “The system of at-

large voting dilutes the ability of Latinos (a ‘protected class’) — to elect candidates of their choice or otherwise influence the outcome of Vista’s council elections,” Shenkman said in the letter. Shenkman referred to a Latino candidate for city council in 2016, who lost to two non-Latino candidates, despite overwhelming support from Latinos. According to the 2010 Census, Latino’s make up over 48 percent of residents of all ages. He also warned of the consequences if the city opts to litigate the issue. “As you are aware, in 2012, we sued the City of Palmdale for violating

the CVRA (California Voting Rights Act). After an eight-day trial, we prevailed. After spending millions of dollars, a district-based remedy was ultimately imposed upon the Palmdale city council, with districts that combine all incumbents into one of the four districts,” he wrote. A report prepared for the City Council says that based on the input of a demographer, it is “extremely unlikely” the city could successfully defend against a lawsuit that argues a violation of the California Voting Rights Act. The state’s Elections Code provides a process of four public hearings:

drawing the draft maps, at least two additional public hearings, and the adoption of the ordinance that establishes the map and terms for each district. On March 28, if the council votes to move forward with voluntary change, Vista will hold the first of those hearings, and discuss considerations for maps of the districts. The most likely scenario is the city divided into four council districts, with the mayor elected at-large. Districts can be divided up by several factors, including neighborhood barriers, like highways and rivers, around shared demographics, or around issue concerns

— but whatever criteria is used, the results must be equal in population, not be racially gerrymandered, and pass standards used in the Federal Voting Rights Act. Escondido was the first city in North County to face such a lawsuit. That city settled the case, and held its first district-based elections in 2014. San Marcos opted to voluntarily change its process last year, and will hold its first elections in 2018, the same year Vista would, if the council goes through the process. Mayor Judy Ritter and council members could not be reached for comment.

Women and hair loss: There is good news for a remedy OCEANSIDE — When it comes to hair loss, it’s safe to say men tend to fare better than women. Male hair loss is more common and acceptable to discuss, while a level of shame and embarrassment can occur for women that prevents them from seeking help. Female hair loss can occur in a few different areas including the sides of the head, the top of the head, the front of the head and the eyebrows. While female hair loss can be the result of a medical condition, it is often due to surgery, damage from hair processing and — when it comes to eyebrows — from overplucking. “The majority of women we see have had prior surgery such as a facelift or a forehead lift,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD, said. “If a woman is experiencing thinned out hair over their entire scalp, that is something that should first be addressed medically. If the hair loss is in a distinct pattern or patch area, we can help.” Facial surgeries such as facelifts or forehead lifts will move back a woman’s hairline, which is

something the specialists at MyHairTransplantMD are able to reconstruct. “It is common for us to see women who have had prior cosmetic work,” Wagner said. “While they have managed to fix one problem area, it can create another one.”

In addition to cosmetic surgery, extensive hair processing is another leading cause of hair loss in women. Bleaching, perming and even excessive blow drying can result in scalp and hair follicle damage. “We see a lot of women who have experienced hair loss due to

chemicals and blow drying,” Wagner said. “When they find us they are excited because they had believed their situation was hopeless. During our consultation we show them exactly how we can help them remedy their hair loss once any burns that have occurred heal. They leave our office with a plan. And once the plan has been executed, their confidence is restored.” When it comes to eyebrow thinning, tweezers are usually the culprit. “Whether trying to keep up with trends in eyebrow shaping, or just a result of aggressive plucking, many women live with thin to nearly non-existent eyebrows. Makeup and tattooing are common solutions, and many women mistakenly believe they are the only ones. “Makeup and permanent makeup in particular can be effective, but they don’t produce the most natural-looking results,” Wagner said. “At MyHairTransplantMD we are able to use the same techniques that can restore hair to the scalp and adapt them to restore the full, natural appearance of your eyebrows.” Procedures for

LOCAL SURGEONS HAVE YOUR BACK What do you get when you pair a seasoned East Coast orthopedic specialist and a young gun surgeon who grew up on the West Coast? You get over 700 robotic spine surgeries completed right here in North County. Together, Dr. Neville Alleyne and Dr. Payam Moazzaz find it their passion to give back to the backs of North County through a revolutionary robotic spine surgery option – the Mazor Robotics Renaissance. In traditional open spine surgery, the spine is exposed via a large incision to allow for full view and access by the medical staff. With the Renaissance system, a patients’ CT-scan is paired with the advanced planning software to create a customized surgery diagnosis and procedure plan, guiding the surgeons to the precise locations where treatment is required. With the Renaissance, surgeons are still in complete control of the procedure and the system empowers them to provide pinpoint treatment for patients. “Back pain can affect anyone at any age,” said Dr. Moazzaz. “As people age, the body becomes more susceptible to injury, and taking steps to avoid a back injury is important.” Here are a few steps you can take to ensure you have a healthy back and spine. • EXERCISE – muscles are connected to the bones in our bodies and help with movement. If muscles are weak, that can affect posture leading to back pain and potential

spine issues. Exercise your spine muscles through what are called ‘core’ exercises – like Pilates and yoga – to keep your back in great shape. • GET UP AND MOVE – many medical studies compare sitting to the unhealthy effects of smoking. Make sure you stay active throughout the day and stand up often if you work at a desk. Doing exercises such as bending and twisting at the waist can reduce the stiff feeling in your spine and get your blood pumping again. • LIFT WITH THE KNEES – it is natural to bend at the waistwhen lifting heavy objects, but

that action puts incredible strain on your spine. Instead, keep your spine in a line from tailbone to the top of your head and bend at the knees when picking up objects. Lifting with your knees not your back is one of those age-old sayings, but it’s completely true and will save you back pain in your later years. Following these basic tips will allow you to have a happier and healthier life. Dr. Neville Alleyne and Dr. Payam Moazzaz are orthopedic surgeons affiliated with Tri-City Medical Center.

Panic! At The Disco front man Brendon Urie and the rest of the band will perform at Viejas Arena March 26. Photo by Shervin Lainez

Don’t panic, it’s only success By Alan Sculley

Brendon Urie, singer and songwriter of Panic! At The Disco, finds himself back headlining arenas this spring — a product of the popularity of the current Panic! At The Disco album, “Death of a Bachelor,” which has gone platinum, produced multiple top 10 singles and earned a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album. It’s not Urie’s first encounter with this sort of major success. His first album with the group, “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” went double platinum and rocketed Panic! At The Disco to the front ranks of alternative rock. But in an early March phone interview, Urie said success feels different this time around. “When I was younger, maybe I didn’t appreciate it, give it its due diligence,” he said. “You know, it was quite a shock jumping into a spotlight. But now, yeah, having gone through that, having gone through the years, different albums, all this time, it’s so much nicer, I think, now. I just have a deeper appreciation for everything that’s happened in the time that’s gone on, and the fans that have stayed all this time, new ones that have joined up.” Urie’s 13-year journey with Panic! At The Disco has been quite a ride, filled with thrills and a good share of drama along the way. Things happened fast after the group formed in Las Vegas in 2004, with Urie joining chief songwriter and guitarist Ryan Ross, drummer Spencer Smith and bassist Brent Wilson. “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” arrived in September 2005, and the album took off commercially behind the hit singles CD’s two singles, “I Write Sins

Not Tragedies” and “The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press Coverage.” But after a second album, “Pretty. Odd.,” which featured a more varied and more Beatles-esque guitar-pop sound, Panic! At The Disco splintered. Ross and bassist Jon Walker (who replaced Wilson in 2006) left Panic! At The Disco to start their own band. This left Urie and Smith to carry on under the Panic! banner. For the 2011 album, “Vices & Virtues,” Urie took over songwriting duties and made a return to the bigger, more theatrical pop sound of the first album. But “Vices & Virtues” failed to generate any hit singles and sales stalled out short of 200,000 copies. By the time band’s fourth album, “Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!,” arrived in 2013, Smith had left the group to deal with substance abuse issues. But with the album’s lead single, “Miss Jackson,” going top 10 at alternative rock, Panic! At The Disco began regaining commercial momentum. Heading into the “Death of a Bachelor” project, Urie looked outside of the group for songwriting collaborators, working with heavy hitters like Jake Sinclair, Sam Hollander and Lauren Pritchard on the album’s 11 songs, while playing most every instrument but the horns on the album himself. Urie said that while Panic! At The Disco might appear to have evolved into his solo project, it still feels like a band for him. “It definitely does, especially playing live. I think in those moments it’s more like a band,” said Urie, who has a four-person TURN TO PANIC ON A18

The 2-mile stretch on Coast Highway 101 from Taco   Bull to Fish 101 if you decide to go south to north is one of the most eclectic and charming in Southern California. Add in 23 of Leucadia’s amazing restaurants serving samples for ticket holders, seven Sip Stop locations including a Craft Beer Pavilion, live music and it makes for a very memorable evening. I repeat every year that Leucadia is becoming a dining destination, and it’s about time to lose the word becoming — as the quality and quantity of eateries has been reached to earn that title. The variety is enough to satisfy even the most persnickety of foodies and if you’ve not done Leucadia recently, the Taste is a great way to check out what’s new. With that, let’s take a stroll up the 101 for a sneak peak at what’s in store. The event starts on the south end at Bull Taco, the only participant on the east side of the 101 and also home to Shibari Organic Ramen.

All-Coast News Basketball team, coach of the year selected

Cardiff’s Roberts was keen to listen to fatherly advice sports talk

By Aaron Burgin

REGION — Jake Gilliam’s rise up the ranks at Torrey Pines has been a lot like the 6-foot-10 senior’s game — slow and steady. He played on the JV team as a freshman and moved up to the varsity team as a sophomore, playing sparingly due to injury. As a junior, Gilliam blossomed and earned a starting role on a team that made it to the Open Division semifinals. This year, the unquestioned leader of the Falcons averaged 15.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game, and led the team to the brink of the CIF Open Division championship, falling in a 48-45 heartbreak to top-seeded St. Augustine. For this reason, Gilliam is your Coast News Player of the Year. The two-time allleague first team selection is still undecided on where he will attend college, but expect him to sign during the spring signing period

No hashtag needed to get Allen into Kia Classic By Tony Cagala

CARLSBAD — Beth Allen may not be home, but she isn’t unfamiliar with San Diego either. Allen knows San Diego well enough — she grew up a few hours to the north in Ojai until she was a teenager, when her dad, Jim Allen, got a job as the city of San Diego’s director of golf and the family moved to the county. But lately, it’s been Europe — namely Edinburgh, Scotland — that she calls home. Though the 35-yearold golfer is back in town now prior to the start of the Kia Classic. The Kia Classic gets underway March 21 through March 26 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort. Since being in town, Allen’s played a few rounds recently at the course. “It’s not like it’s my home course, but it’s also going to be more familiar to me,” she said. And the familiarity makes all the difference. “I think unfamiliarity sometimes causes anxiety and just the fact that you’ve been somewhere and you know what you’re doing and where you’re going, that makes things easier. So that’s a big deal,” she said. And with a list of restaurants to re-visit with her mom, who still lives in San Diego, Allen doesn’t have any sense of anxiety on being back. Still, the road bringing Allen to where she now is in her professional golf career has been a long and winding one.

ithout “The Talk” there is no “The

Steal.” Right, Dave Roberts? Roberts nods to affirm it, and why wouldn’t he? Without “The Talk” Roberts doesn’t swipe second base for the Red Sox in the 2004 American League Championship Series. That helped Boston to its first World Series title since 1918 and Roberts hasn’t bought dinner in New England since. These days Roberts runs the Dodgers, when he’s not bouncing around Cardiff, his residence, in the offseason. Roberts enters act two in L.A. next month with the 2016 manager of the year award to show for his rookie season. But without “The Talk” Roberts isn’t the Dodgers’ first African American manager, leading them to within an eyelash of disposing the future world champion Chicago Cubs in the postseason. Minus a certain chat, Roberts wouldn’t have carved out a 10-year career in the majors. If not listening, just once, Roberts wouldn’t have worked his way through the Padres’ coaching ranks before landing with L.A. Standing tall was never Roberts’ problem as an outfielder — his shoulders were always back, his head high. But even with a protruding chin, he was a generous 5-foot-10.

He had an average arm. He looked like a ballplayer, but everyone wished there was more of him. Roberts, the Detroit Tigers’ 28th-round pick in 1994, reported to camp believing he was a Single A All-Star. The Tigers, eyeing his frame again, shrugged and suggested he play on a Single A co-op team. An expressway to the majors? Not quite. Roberts was crestfallen because, despite his size, he had produced. He realized solid numbers might not even eclipse his perceived physical limitations. “I was constantly trying to prove myself,’’ Roberts said. The Tigers tipped their hand on their calculations. “That’s when I thought I probably wasn’t going to make it if they were sending me there,’’ Roberts said. Poof went the dream, which started when he was as a three-sport star at Rancho Buena Vista High. He eventually concentrated on baseball, forsaking football and basketball. Now the game Roberts’ couldn’t do without, was making noise it could get along without him. Roberts got the message. Time to pack up his gear and pack in his hopes. It was time for “The Talk” and Roberts might not have known it. Then again, how couldn’t he? Waymon Roberts, Dave’s father, absorbed his son’s reasoning on why he was surrendering. But Waymon Roberts suggested flipping the Tigers’ decision. Instead of making TURN TO PARIS ON A18

After not finding much success early on in her LPGA career, Allen decided to head overseas to play in Europe on the Ladies European Tour (LET). That move was everything, she explained. “I think if I didn’t do that, then I probably wouldn’t be playing professionally anymore,” she said. “I was struggling and Europe was perfect because it made me happy off and on the course as well.” On the course, Allen earned last year’s LET Player of the Year honor and Order of Merit title.

Off the course, she found love and got married last July. “It’s been a crazy ride, but I’d never change it,” Allen said. Meanwhile, golfers have been teeing it up all while stands are being set up and the course prepared for the tournament. Dennis Baggett, LPGA tournament director, said that none of the wet weather the county experienced this year, has affected the course. “The course, because it was so dry, has taken the water incredibly well,”

Baggett said. It was completely playable the day after the area got nearly 3-inches of rain, Baggett added. What the rain has brought though is greener grass and thicker rough. Back in 2015, Baggett remembers when the tournament’s Twitter account was being inundated with tweets calling for Allen to be allowed to play. Allen’s friend, Mike Lewis, started an “all-ingood-fun” social media campaign to try and get TURN TO KIA CLASSIC ON A18

been a financial boon for the city. “It is ethically, morally and just from a point of survival incumbent for us to do something about it,” Paris said. Paris, who spoke for a half hour, said the biggest obstacle his city faced when forming their energy group was from Southern California Edison. “In order for us to really be effective, we had to take the power back from Edison, not because they are bad people, but because they are very slow, they are bureaucratic,” Paris said. The call for swift action was a common theme echoed by other panelists. “Don’t wait for the next symposium,” said Drake Welch, the vice president of customer care from CalPine Energy Solutions, which provides data management and call center services for many of the state’s CCE programs. Welch was among a panel that included Dave Pine, the vice president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, Colin Miller, the program manager of Local Clean Energy Alliance and Tom Habashi, the CEO of Silicon Valley Clean Energy. Pine, whose county’s CCE, Peninsula Clean Energy, is one of several in Northern California, said

a need for him to return to Afghanistan. He was discharged from the military in 2010. Phil said his son has struggled ever since with post traumatic stress disorder and other maladies, causing him to self medicate at times. “He constantly struggled to transition back to civilian life,” Phil said. “He’s had trouble sleeping, and all of the symptoms of PTSD that are common among veterans. He was really unable to transition back to what you and I would consider a normal routine.” Sean, Phil said, has been in and out of shortterm rehabilitation facilities since his exit from the military, but his struggles persisted.

T he C oast News - I nland E dition the major factors that helped them successfully launch their program was having the manpower, financial resources (the county put up the $3 million seed money), and massive communication and stakeholder outreach that included a 20-person advisory committee. This, Pine said, allowed the county to overcome the biggest obstacle, skepticism from local government officials who saw the program as “too good to be true.” He said they got all of the city attorneys in the county involved with writing the joint power authority agreement that provided the backbone for the CCE. “They were the most conservative voices, so we got them eating the (sic) food,” Pine said. Pine said the best argument that elected official could make to their constituents was they were giving them a choice. Habashi echoed Pine’s sentiments, saying that communities needed to be prepared to spend lots of money ($2 million to $3 million before seeing a return on the investment), and needed to have the program led by a single entity, such as a CEO or a chairman, not by committee. “You need one maestro, not six conductors trying to lead the show,” Habashi said. Habashi also said it was important for communities to choose what their exact goal

was with their CCE, whether it be green energy, better rates than the local energy provider or economic development. “These are all fine and good but one of them must take precedence for your community,” Habashi said. Blakespear, whose city is among five coastal communities considering a joint powers authority to form a community choice organization, said that the forum helped her get a better understanding of the undertaking of creating a group. “It wasn’t my goal to run an energy company when I ran for mayor, but I want our city to be a more environmentally oriented city, and having clean power is the most effective way to reduce our carbon footprint,” she said. “This helps me understand the details of CCA and what it means for a city to actually start one. There is lot of intricacy, and I need to understand that to be a supporter.” Blakespear said she still needed more information before committing the city to moving forward, but said the fact that Encinitas is not alone makes the task less daunting. While the County of San Diego has already voted to not pursue a CCA, which Blakespear said was disappointing, the fact that other cities still have interest means they can still move forward with the next steps.

has been hit with one tragedy after the next. Sean’s mother was diagnosed in 2014 with Stage 4 lung cancer and has been undergoing treatment ever since. In February, his grandmother and aunt also passed away, further straining the family. This was the backdrop of the March 4 incident involving Sean, which occurred while he was shopping. He was taken to Scripps Mercy, where he has been relatively unresponsive, save for a moment a week ago when he opened his eyes for the first time. Doctors, Phil said, said the seizure and subsequent brain injuries are likely linked to the brain injuries he suffered while serving in the military. With documentation from the VA that Sean is rated as 100 percent disabled, Phil said he thought there would be

no trouble setting up his rehabilitative care. Then, Phil said, he and the family received the biggest shock of all: his case manager at Scripps told the family that the VA only rated Sean as 70 percent disabled, meaning he wouldn’t qualify for the long-term care. “This has been emotionally crippling to the family in terms of seeing this young man feel compelled to join to do his part, and for him to come home and have this kind of rejection,” said Jeanie Cash, Phil’s sister who approached The Coast News with the story. “It has been very traumatic for them, emotionally and physically.” The Veterans Administration, prompted by questioning by The Coast News, is investigating Sean’s case. We will update readers of any developments.

God, and I’m not God, and I don’t second-guess God, and I don’t even try to come up with reasons…I think it’s rather facile and stupid to try to come up with reasons for something like this,” he said. He said he’s been receiving lots of support from the people at St. Timothy’s and from his own and Cathy’s family, too. “What is the meaning of life? The meaning of life is giving yourself and loving service to other people. That’s what we all believe. And that’s what, I think, she put that into action, to an extent, that very few other people do,” Kevin said. “I miss the fun we had together,” he added. “We did a lot of stuff together. It’s lonely. I miss her laugh. I miss her spirit. Her companionship…we were growing together. She was pushing me to grow, and I was pushing her to grown.” Marie Mendoza, Catherine’s mother, fought through tears as she spoke at the vigil.

She told of how Catherine was a single mother for at least 20 years and who found a second life with Kevin, hiking together and going motorcycle riding. “And they were very happy,” she said. Mendoza said that she couldn’t forgive whoever was responsible for her daughter’s death, that she couldn’t “turn the other cheek.” “If they’re out there, I ask them, if they see a priest then forgive them, let God forgive them. They might be saved. Don’t go on like this. There’s so many other children that will die because of gun violence and because of the drugs,” she said. “Keep your children close to you. Teach them right from wrong, and if they go stray, try to bring them back,” Mendoza added. With the investigation still ongoing, police are asking for anyone else with information on the case to call (760) 839-4926 or anonymously at (760) 743-8477.

card. “You can’t feel sorry for yourself,’’ Roberts said. “I needed a wake-up call.’’ Roberts responded and was the Dodgers starting centerfielder by 2002. Fortified by his fa-

Lewis flooded The Kia Classic Twitter account with tweets all with the hashtag, “drivebethtokia.” While her friends don’t have to campaign to get her into the field this year, Allen, who earned her way into the tournament this year, said her friends might have something in the works when competition begins next week. She added it’ll be nice to have a fan base out on the course. While Allen said he doesn’t have any immediate plans to move back to the U.S., she is bringing something from Europe back to the states with her: a sense of confidence — the confidence she gained while learning how to win on the LET. “Hopefully, when I’m in contention here I’ll be able to deal with that, whereas I was not getting that when I was here before, because I just wasn’t good enough. And now I feel like I’m good enough and I have a lot of experience.” Tickets for the Kia Classic are available now at kiaclassic.com. out (from) past albums,” Urie said of the song selection. “The idea was to keep it high energy.
