Alleged drug ‘haven’ leads to Vista arrest By City News Service
VISTA — Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment March 3 charging a Vista man with maintaining a drug den at his property in the city, which prosecutors say was home to numerous drug dealers and gang members. Sean Terrence Sheeter is charged with a federal count of maintaining a drug-involved premises at a two-acre home at 725 Poinsettia Ave., according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which is also seeking a criminal forfeiture of the property. Prosecutors say North County gang members lived at the residence and used it as a headquarters for the importation of heroin and methamphetamine from Mexico, and the distribution of said drugs throughout North San Diego County. U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer called the residence, “a drug-laden haven for violent felons, gang members, drug dealers and drug users.” A search warrant unsealed by prosecutors states that Sheeter, who owns the property, allowed several targets of a law enforcement operation into drugs and firearms trafficking to stay at the home in exchange for providing him with drugs Officials say that from the beginning of 2017 until last month, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department received 53 separate calls regarding the property, including reports of stolen vehicles, thefts, disturbance calls, burglaries, grand thefts, armed suspicious persons, vandalism, and threats with a weapon. During that time, 22 arrests were made -— mostly for drug possession and stolen vehicles — and seven citations were issued at the property, which officials say is TURN TO ARREST ON 11

Diaz trails; Issa appears to advance By City News Service
REGION — San Diego County residents soundly rejected plans for the Newland Sierra housing project north of Escondido, along Interstate 15 and north of Deer Springs Road. If it had been approved, Measure B, also known as the Better Choice Measure, would have upheld the county supervisors' approval of a general plan amendment allowing the Newland Sierra project to go forward. Newland wanted to build 2,135 homes on the 1,985-acre site. The development would feature 81,000 square feet of commercial space, a six-acre school site, 35.87 acres of public and private parks, 19.2 miles of multi-use community trails, an equestrian staging area and 1,209 acres of open space. As of Wednesday morning, more than 58% of voters in the March 3 primary election had rejected the measure. Rick Schloss, spokes-
man for the No on B campaign, said the voters spoke clearly when rejecting the measure. “We are optimistic that strong rejection of Newland Sierra will be fully confirmed as the vote tally is officially completed over the next days,” he said. “Newland had every opportunity to guarantee affordable housing when they originally sought the county’s approval — but they chose not to. It should be no surprise to Newland that San Diegans didn’t believe their last minute claims. No on B is proud that we stuck to the facts and held Newland Sierra accountable for the flaws in their project. We will be ready for whatever they try next.” Supporters of Measure B said 60% of the new homes would be affordable for working families, starting in the $300,000 range.

Keeping Welk’s legacy alive By Hoa Quach
ESCONDIDO — North County has changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained the same for Vista resident Adriene Edwards — she has always loved going to work. This year, Edwards celebrates her 55th anniversary of working at Welk Resorts. The Pennsylvania native who moved to California in 1963 began working at Welk Resorts shortly after entertainer Lawrence Welk opened the business. Edwards was a waitress at a nearby restaurant when the lodge, formerly named The Welkome Inn, opened. However, when the chef of the restaurant left for the new inn — she and three others joined. “I feel blessed to have
been a part of this company’s journey and to have been so close to Lawrence and his family,” Edwards said. “I just loved him. When I started, I had no idea that this would be my lifelong calling, but his hospitality and kindness did encourage loyalty and those values are still a part of our culture.” As the longest-serving employee, Edwards has been a witness to many changes. What started as a small motel with a nine-hole golf course has emerged into a 450-acre resort, with two golf courses, multiple pools, spa, theater and more. The company has also expanded to include resorts in other areas of the world. Edwards has also served in many different roles at the resort
before landing her current position at the Welk Theatre. Although the company has flourished since opening in 1964, Edwards said it remains a family business, which shows in the way employees interact with their guests. “For instance, when our owners or rental guests arrive, our staff always say ‘Welkome home,’” Edwards said. “It pays homage to the Welkome Inn. It’s a fun tradition and just one of the ways we always provide superior customer service to our guests.” In fact, her favorite moments include that of the late entertainer and his family. “One of my favorite TURN TO WELK ON 5

Measure Q: EUSD bond bid falls short From Staff Reports
ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Union School District fell short in its bid for more than $200 million in bonds to help pay for repair, renovation and modernization projects at schools in the district. With 100% of precincts reporting results from the March 3 primary election, Measure Q failed to get approval from the required 55% of Escondido-area voters. As of Wednesday morning, Measure Q had the support of nearly 51% of voters. Had it passed, Measure Q was designed to help pay
to fix deteriorating roofs, plumbing and electrical systems, build new classrooms and buildings and improve campus security and safety, according to language on the San Diego County Registrar of Voters website. The new measure came six years after the approval of Proposition E, a similar ballot initiative that approved $182 million in bonds for Escondido Union School District.

VISTA — Each year one member is selected as the club’s very best. The competition is more than 40 years old and part of the fabric of the Boys & Girls Club. In Vista, this year’s overall winner of Youth of the Year was an obvious choice to those staff members who’ve watched her grow over the past six or seven years. And on March 10, Jimena Villalobos, a 16-year-old junior at Guajome Park Academy, will participate in the countywide contest representing her club in Del Mar. She will also take center stage at the club’s 10th annual gala on March 7 at the Westin Carlsbad, which is the biggest fundraiser of the year. For winning the Vista club’s Youth of the Year, Villalobos earned a $1,500 scholarship and if she wins the regional competition, she’ll tack on another scholarship worth several thousand dollars. Each year the Vista club hands out 25 winners over a range of disciplines from poetry to athletics. “For me, it’s the best night of the year,” said Matt Koumaras, the club’s chief executive officer. “I like it because we get to honor kids across all the departments.” Villalobos has been a rising star at the club for

He said her natural leadership abilities draw other kids, especially younger ones, to her whether it’s for dance programs, gardening or other interests. In school, Villalobos earns As and Bs, plays softball and volleyball, is in student council and is a member of the Key (community service) and conservation clubs.

She’s also been involved with the Torch Club, a community service project, drama and being active with a healthy lifestyle. “The whole process was quite difficult,” Villalobos said. “It really made me question everything that I do. I was surprised that I was chosen. This whole experience was overwhelming and I’m just thankful.” Youth of the Year is a nationwide program created in the 1940s, Koumaras said. It honors the best member of each club, who must show a variety of success such as academics,
community service and club involvement, to name a few. As for Villalobos, Koumaras said her leadership and her natural ability to connect with the younger kids has been a valuable part of the club. “She is the perfect example of what we do … a kid with a great future,” he added. “Her school has given her a great future. We’ve given her a great future and when you combine that, you can’t lose.” The Vista club was formed in 1963 and has called its 410 W. California Ave. location home since 1966, Koumaras said. The other locations include three schools and at Raintree Park Learning Center. As for the gala, Koumaras said this year it will be a James Bond theme featuring a casino night. The proceeds help offset the actual cost for each of the 1,200 members across five locations in Vista and Oceanside, he added. The event will be emceed by Mari Payton of NBC 7 along with special guest, retired San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman. “Our annual membership fee is 50 bucks a year,” Koumaras said. “The actual cost per club members is $700 per child. It’s through this event that we can break that down and serve more kids.”
State to seek death penalty in Poway synagogue shooting REGION — The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office announced March 5 that it will seek the death penalty for a man accused of opening fire inside a Poway synagogue last year, killing a woman and injuring three others. John T. Earnest, 20, of Rancho Penasquitos, is charged with murder, attempted murder, arson and hate crime allegations for the April 27, 2019, shooting at Chabad of Poway and the March 24, 2019, blaze at the Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque, also known as the Islamic Center of Escondido. Earnest's trial is currently set for June 2, though his attorney is expected to ask that it be delayed to prepare for a defense against capital punishment. His next court dates include
a March 20 hearing in San Diego federal court, and an April 17 status conference in state court. In addition to the state’s case, Earnest faces more than 100 hate crime-related counts filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and could also face the death penalty in the federal case. The former Cal State San Marcos student is accused of carrying out the shooting on the last day of Passover, fatally wounding 60-year-old Lori Gilbert Kaye, who was shot twice in the synagogue's foyer. Kaye, a longtime member of Chabad of Poway, was at the temple with her husband and daughter to honor her mother, who had recently died. — City News Service

REGION — Stacey Messina of Lake San Marcos said she struggled with work while caring for her three children. As a small business owner, Messina said she often took her children to markets where she attempted to sell her products but found the environments unwelcoming. “I could tell customers saw this as unprofessional and would skip past my booth with kids in tow,” said Messina, a mother of two young boys. “I needed to find a space where this was seen as acceptable.” Unable to find a business-friendly environment that also catered to children, Messina and friend, Kendra Maister of Escondido, launched SDPopUp PlayDate. The group, which has attracted hundreds of people from throughout San Diego County, hosts free, kid-friendly events for mothers every Saturday in San Marcos. “The ultimate goal of SDPopUp PlayDate is to provide fun and engaging events for families with children while supporting local hardworking businesses that offer goods and services to young families,” Messina said. “Our goal is to connect the two and support programming for children ages 0 to 5 while offering social interaction for both parents and the kiddos.” The free event allows vendors, most of whom are mothers, to sell their products while children are able to play. There are also free activities and live music at the events, said Messina and Maister. “Aspiring to work with kids and wanting to create a space where we could work with our own children is what inspired us to create SDPopUp Playdate,” said Maister, who is also a mothpercent to $1,660, while two bedrooms remained flat at $1,950.

er of two. “Our playdates connect young families with kid friendly establishments and small-owned businesses.” But, it’s not just providing a free space for mothers and their children to socialize. It’s also the bonds that are being created. Messina said she struggled to arrange playdates for her own children prior to launching SDPopUp PlayDate. “For me, it's a little awkward and intimidating striking up a conversation with a random person at the park,” Messina said. “We can now grab a bite and relax while the kids are fully entertained by the extra toys, sensory play, and crafts we bring to the playdates. We are so fortunate to have met so many families and several small businesses that cater to our
kiddos interests.” Although both mothers have daytime jobs, they’ve devoted countless hours each week to organizing these free events, Maister said. So far, the rewards have paid off. “It's always so rewarding to see the smiles and hear the words of appreciation from families,” Maister said. “Sometimes all we need is a little nudge to get out and enjoy some fresh air alongside our peers who are going through similar situations.” For Messina, it’s the feedback from fellow mothers that’s most gratifying. “I hope moms feel recharged and connected,” Messina said. “When you have littles, a child's constant need for stimulation is exhausting and so is their attention span. We hope
that they feel a little less stressed and maybe found a new mom to connect with. Although the group is only a year old, both Maister and Messina said they see SDPopUp PlayDate thriving for years to come. “SDPopUp Playdate will most likely evolve and change as our kids grow,” Maister said. “To imagine it being around five to 10 years from now would be amazing.” SDPopUp PlayDate hosts a free playdate from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday at My Yard Live in San Marcos. The events typically include crafts, activities, yoga, live music and more. The group also hosts other free events throughout the region.

Homelessness tops state agenda By Marie Waldron
In his State of the State address, Gov. Newsom made homelessness a top priority. He also noted that California is the world’s fifth-largest economy, the richest state in the richest nation, but with massive poverty in our midst. The disgraceful evidence of that poverty can be seen in homeless people on our streets with encampments stretching from Mexico to Oregon. I applaud the Governor for taking on this issue. Over the years, I have fought for improved access to treatment for those with mental illness and substance use disorders, health care and shelter. And as the Governor stated, we need better legal tools to allow governments, health providers and law enforcement to more effectively help
people get treatment. Unfortunately, some individuals are incapable of accepting help to get off the streets. That’s why my legislation allowing local governments, loved ones and service providers to ask courts to compel those needing treatment into community-based outpatient care was signed into law in 2016. The Governor also mentioned that more housing is critical. Unfortunately, well-intentioned laws have been used by special interests, blocking new projects, while rent control has discouraged construction. Government mandates have driven costs through the roof, making some lowcost housing unaffordable. Unnecessary policies blocking new housing must be changed.
All levels of government must come together to address homelessness. Red tape should be cut, and using funding with intentionality is critical to achieving results. Accountability is a must, but arguing over past mistakes is pointless. It’s time we look forward to address the interrelated problems of homelessness, mental health and substance abuse, one person, one family at a time. We can agree on the problems, but solutions will be a subject of intense debate. This year, I’m looking forward to working with the Governor to address these critical issues. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature
t turns out California’s politicians were right: They advanced the state’s presidential primary election from its traditional June date to the earliest time available under Democratic Party rules to attain more national influence, and they achieved that goal. First, 13 other states quickly followed California onto March 3, creating a coast-to-coast Super Tuesday that still left the Golden State’s pot of delegates the day’s biggest prize. That’s influence. In turn, this forced decisions onto candidates who managed only middling performances in the four small-state “undercard” primaries and caucuses, and that wound up creating either a two- or a three-man race by the time California’s primary day arrived. Again, this state’s outsized influence was felt heavily even before a vote was cast here. Then came the preliminary results, which appeared to leave the race to oppose President Trump this fall pretty much a twoman affair. All this represents a huge change for California. For most of the last 50 years, America’s most populous state had little or no voice in choosing presidential candidates for either major political party, even though it largely fuels both the national economy and culture. That changed a little in 2008, when California moved its primary up from the customary early June date to Feb. 5, only to be joined by a dozen more states seeking to dilute its influence, just as they did this year. Nevertheless, Hillary Clinton’s big win here 12 years ago forced eventual winner Barack Obama to keep campaigning through
california focus thomas d. elias other primary states until late spring. Then in 2016, California’s primary returned to its traditional June slot, giving the state no say at all in shaping the eventual matchup of Democrat Clinton vs. Republican Trump. Which helps explain why California opted to vote early this year. And California could have been decisive if Democratic voters had solidified behind one candidate to take on Trump in the fall. They did not. Nevertheless, the California vote will reverberate for months. Although 13 other states also voted on “Super Tuesday,” Michael Bloomberg’s six weeks of campaigning and spending here and in Texas, while ignoring the small earlier states, put him in third place after the California primary and probably deprived former Vice President Joe Biden of a plurality here. If you figured the $90 million-plus spent here (an economic benefit of moving up the primary) by Bloomberg and fellow billionaire Tom Steyer on a per-voter basis, they paid about $40 for every vote they both won. Once again, if an early candidate like Biden or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders or Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren had thoroughly dominated here, any of them could have become the big favorite. Now, even though Sanders won here, the ideological split among Democrats between moderates
and extreme liberals will force him to keep campaigning hard for months. Had Warren dropped out before California, it’s possible Sanders could have held a dominating position because of the 415 first-ballot national convention delegates California offered, almost one-fourth of the 1,991 needed for a first-ballot nomination. Also, few Democratic candidates took advantage of California’s conducting what amounted to 54 separate primaries, one statewide and one in each of 53 congressional districts. Any Democrat who cared to campaign heavily in Republican-dominated districts would not need to win over many voters in order to get the several delegates each district provides. Bloomberg was the only candidate to do much of this and it won him delegates. The others essentially threw up their hands when they got to California and saw they couldn’t possibly match the outreach Bloomberg bought with his many millions, along with the established name recognition and popularity of Sanders and Biden. The result is that California saw plenty of benefit in the early primary: Media businesses (but not newspapers) made millions, mostly off Bloomberg and Steyer, who began their big spending in December. There’s also little doubt this state’s positioning helped winnow the field down. So California may not have been decisive, but both its actions and its votes shaped the race the nation will see for the rest of the spring. That was this state at last exerting some of the influence it deserves to wield. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lawrence Welk memories was from one of the Lawrence Welk Christmas shows,” Edwards said. “Lawrence had his entire family on (children, grandchildren, members of his band) and while he was introducing everyone, he introduced his son, Lawrence Welk II, and then moved to his grandson, Lawrence Welk III, however, with his accent, he said ‘I want you to meet Lawrence Welk, The Turd.’ It was quite a comical moment.” It isn’t just Welk’s family Edwards has created memories with. She’s also creating memories with her own, including her daughter who also works at the resort. Sean Coogan, vice president of resort operations, said Edwards shares that family experience with each guest she encounters. “Adriene makes the family experience,” Coogan said. “We are able to honor her, and she carries on the family values that Lawrence Welk promoted. Everyone who stays at Welk Resorts San Diego or
works for our resort or head office knows her signature big, black eyeglasses.” Edwards also embodies the mission and values of the company, Coogan said. “She brings Lawrence Welk’s memory and legacy to life for our younger owners and our new employees,” said Coogan who has worked with Edwards for more than 30 years. “She is also such a warm and welcoming presence at our San Diego property. She works harder than any manager on property.” Edwards, a mother of three children, grandmother of four and great grandmother of eight, said she plans to stay at Welk Resorts for as long as possible. “I plan to work as long as God gives me the strength to,” Edwards said. “I also love talking about Lawrence and sharing the company’s history. Lawrence held firm to his strong beliefs in integrity, honesty and trust and we convey that message to our staff. It’s important to me, and I think it’s what people really love about staying at Welk Resorts.”

French-inspired Mexican goodness at Carte Blanche lick the plate david boylan
here comes a tipping point when an area has enough high-quality, nonchain restaurants to qualify, in my mind at least, as a culinary destination. Oceanside has reached that point and Carte Blanche has sealed the deal. First off, a bit about the family of restaurateurs that is behind Carte Blanche, which is located in the SALT Complex in downtown Oceanside by the pier. The French-inspired Mexican bistro is now open from prominent restaurateur Chuck Ross and his family. His sons Ryan and Brandon Ross, the brothers who I interviewed for Lick the Plate on 101.5 KGB (our new station), come from a restaurant family as their dad was named Restaurateur of the Year by the California Restaurant Association’s San Diego Chapter and has quite a track record of successful hospitality endeavors. Brandon and Ryan followed in his footsteps after careers in the business world as their dad emphasized early on that they should establish their own paths, so they didn’t take the direct route into restaurant ownership, but it remained a deep-seated passion. Oceanside made
perfect sense as their inaugural location given the vibrant development happening. Both Ryan and Brandon are married and their wives are active in both with Carte Blanche and Chuck Ross’ businesses in Old Town that include Fiesta de Reyes, Barra Barra Saloon and the Cosmopolitan Hotel. As far as the menu goes they made a smart move in luring Executive Chef Alex Carballo away from his consulting business to head up the kitchen full time. Needing someone who could merge the tastes of two cultures and unify families over a shared meal, one name came to mind and that was Chef Carballo. I’ve followed Alex over the past nine years, interviewed him several times, and have always enjoyed the food coming out of his kitchen. Most notably was a recent stop at Valentina in Leucadia. Carte Blanche means blank page in French and is exactly that for Chef Alex Carballo, who was sold on the concept enough to head up the Ross family’s new venture. Besides Valentina, Alex has run kitchens at Indigo Grill, The Brigantine and Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, to name a few. Carte Blanche’s menu boasts French-inspired Mexican food, with dishes including Carne Asada Tartare: onion, garlic, capers, micro greens, chili lime aioli, quail egg, plantains; Duck Mole Tacos: corn tortillas, mole negro, pickled onions, smoked cotija, duck

skin chicharrones; Chile Verde Moules Frites; Mushroom Raclette: portabella, raclette fondue with or without chorizo and a special served with tortillas. The dishes revolve around a shared plate concept to promote family-style dining. Modern Mexican cuisine is influenced in part of French colonialism, so incorporating strikingly French ingredients into Mexican was a natural fit. I will admit, my culinary history was lacking on this French and Mexican culinary connection so I had to do some research. Culinary historians consider modern Mexican cooking to be a fusion of three cuisines: Native American, Spanish and, surprising to many (in-
cluding me) who don’t know the details of Mexican history, French. Napoleon III, seeing more bounty in the New World, installed his brother Maximilian, archduke of Austria, as emperor of Mexico. Maximilian’s wife Carlota introduced the Mexican aristocracy to French chefs and well, they liked what they tasted. Native ingredients and French culinary methods worked well together. Mexican foods like avocados, squash blossoms, tomatoes and chocolate produced scrumptious pairings. As a result were delicious sauces and cooking techniques that helped create one of the world’s great cuisines. South-of-the-border wouldn’t have flan, pes-

cado Vera Cruz or chiles en nogado without the French. And according to chef Carballo, “that combination produces endless flavor profiles.” One menu item that I would like to make note of is the use of Raclette, one of my favorite types of cheese anywhere and one that I hope starts to trend as it is so fabulous. Besides that we sampled the Caesar Salad with smoked cojita, fried capers and a chili arbol Caesar dressing. The Hamachi with sashimi, sour apple agua chili and avocado apple relish was melt in my mouth amazing. Quail Knots are a chef Carballo thing for sure as I’ve seen them before and they are one of my favorite things to eat. His Carte Blanche version is harrisa fried with a green apple slaw and cilantro onion buttermilk. For those unfamiliar, Quail Knots are basically a semi-boneless quail with the wing removed and drumstick pulled through the boneless breast, skin on and boneless except for the drumstick. I could eat a couple dozen easy. The Black Cod with crispy skin, braised leeks, roasted beets, herb chimichurri and chili oil was spectacular … and I don’t use that word loosely. Dessert was another first with the 28 Layer Crepe Cake with Mexican chocolate, hazelnut, crepe and berry reduction. It really is 28 layers and wow, besides being visually impressive, it was a delight to consume. There is a nice long bar with crafty cocktails and beer and a wine list that did CROP not overwhelm. I enjoyed .93every aspect of Carte Blanche .93 and it is going to go on my go-back list for sure. 4.17 4.28 Carte Blanche is located at 339 N.

Smoke-free outdoor dining list available SAN MARCOS — As part of American Heart Month in February, Vista Community Clinic released an online “Guide to Smoke-Free Outdoor Dining in San Marcos,” which lists restaurants that offer smoke-free air and a healthier dining experience. Clinic physicians noted that just 30 minutes of exposure to secondhand smoke increases the risk of heart attack and stroke, even for healthy people. The cardiac effects of secondhand smoke are especially deadly for the one in four San Marcos residents who already have heart disease, breathing problems or diabetes. “A while back I went to a restaurant in San Marcos and while I was eating outside, the guy next to me started smoking. I ended up feeling short of breath and going to the hospital as a result, and my whole family was panicked,” said San Marcos resident Ayana Ford. “It’s so important for all of us to be protected by smoke-free policies.” San Marcos residents and visitors can show their hearts some extra love by accessing the free guide at northcoastalpreventioncoalition.org/programs/tc/sfod/guide and are urged to express their heartfelt thanks to the 60 restaurants that are already smoke-free. “Everyone deserves these life-saving protections, so we are asking city leaders to act and are inviting community members to join us in this important effort,” said Jennifer Gill, Program Supervisor, Vista Community Clinic. Restaurants and community members can contact Gill at Jennifer.Gill@ vcc.org or (760) 631-5000, ext. 1001 for more information.

Meadiocrity’s honey-fueled brew is a local hit Cheers! North County
ead, that’s like honey right?” “Will there be bees there?” Those were the responses I received when I suggested we stop at Meadiocrity Meadery in San Marcos. The answers are yes, and no. All mead starts with honey, water and yeast, but like craft beer the end product comes in a wide variety of flavors. No, there are no bees in the brewery. In fact their lease expressly prohibits it! We pushed through the doors, and order a mixed flight. The Saturday afternoon crowd was mellow. Low music played, and it was cool inside. A mix of families, and couples drinking, coloring, playing games or even reading books were scattered throughout the room. Wood honeycomb installations suspended from the ceiling. A beekeeper suit hung around the corner from the bar. Low tables filled the main tasting area, and the far corner of the room is where the liquid is produced. The stainless
steel sparkled. The meadery is technically a winery, but it felt like we’re in the tasting room of a brewery. I think we all expected something thick, syrupy and sweet. Something that invokes the revelry of kings and queens around the roundtable, or Greek Gods toasting to good luck in battle. Instead we found meads with an eclectic mix of flavors and mouthfeels. In our flight samples, along with the 100% raw California honey, we tasted mango, ginger, vanilla, rose and oak. There is mead featuring rosemary, apricot, pineapple, sage and thyme. Some are sweet. Some are dry. The carbonation varies. Most are very drinkable between 4-8% ABV, with only their flagship mead, Foundation, being a true sipper at 12.5% ABV. Earlier in the week I sat down with Meadiocrity co-founder, Mark Oberle. More than once he mentioned how the team, and head meadmaker John Botica, want the honey flavor to be celebrated. “Honey is the showstopper,” said Oberle. “It’s what makes mead.” The type of yeast used, brewing process, added flavors, and the season and location the honey has been harvested are all variables impacting the final taste buzzing on

your tongue when you take that first sip. We viscerally experienced that when we tasted two different honeys produced by some of the estimated 6 million bees in 100 hives managed by Meadiocrity’s beekeepers Andrew Segina and Nate Fredericks. It’s rare that a meadery manages their own bees, but for
Meadiocrity it is part of their “Bee to Bottle” process. The first batch of honey is a light golden color with a subtle honey taste featuring a dainty blast of sweet citrus. The second batch is a dark amber with a warm, caramel finish. The flavor difference is extreme. It was shocking to learn that these honeys were pro-
duced by the exact same bees during the same year. Just in different locations and times. The first in Valley Center during spring 2019. According to Mark, the bees would have been feasting on delicate, cold hardy flowers nestled in with the orange groves of the area. The second batch was produced later at Palomar Mountain. The bees would have moved beyond early season flowers likely to buckwheat which flowers during the summer season and is more drought tolerant. Part of Meadiocrity’s mission is to raise awareness of mead. When asked what one thing he wanted people to know about the drink Oberle replied, “Mead is as varied, or more varied than craft beer. Even if you’ve had one that you haven’t liked, or don’t think you’ll like mead, give it a shot. And give it a shot a couple different spots (meaderies), because people will find there is drastic differences in style, flavor profiles, alcohol, and sweetness levels at each location.” Back with my group swap the word “hoppy” for “sweet” or “dry,” and the conversation sounds a lot like any of the thousands I’ve had in breweries discussing the color, aroma, tingle on the tongue, and flavor
of beer. An added benefit of supporting this particular meadery is we’re also supporting the expansion of their beehives. I’m looking forward to adding meaderies into the rotation of breweries and fine drinking establishments I find myself. If you want to try this ancient, almost mythic, style of liquid for yourself you can order online at meadiocritymead.com, or stop by Meadiocrity at 1356 Grand Avenue in San Marcos every Thursday through Sunday to get a glass, or take a bottle or growler to go. My personal favorites are the semi-sweet Ginger Creme on Nitro, and the off-dry Stop & Smell the Roses. It’s easy to find just off the Las Posas Road exit on Highway 78. Check out their website for specific hours, draft list, special events and a lot of information about mead. Important reminder, you will, most likely, not get the coronavirus (COVID-19) from Corona beer, but I still recommend finding a local brewery with a fine tasting pale lager to try instead. Perhaps from Rip Current Brewing found on the other side of parking lot from Meadiocrity. Don’t forget to follow our Cheers! North County adventures on Instagram and Twitter: @CheersNorthCounty.

Spring in their steps
ou never need a calendar at elementary school to know when spring has arrived. And in California, of course, it arrives before the snow stops falling elsewhere. I can tell because no one under 5 feet tall is able to just walk. Not through the library, office, or across the playground asphalt. Hence the nurse is busier than ever passing out Band-Aids and fixing road rash. She is also hoping that the cold and flu season has peaked, because we were racking up record absences in February. We would never wish those sweet kids ill, but I suspect the teachers rather enjoyed the smaller class size for a few days. I tell them to slow down gently. I tell them to slow down loudly — all to no avail. The sun has come out and whatever signal goes off when the weather turns mild, is loudly ringing inside every kid between 5 and 25. I suspect some of the younger teachers would like to run, too. I actually view this time of the year with a hidden smile. I love watching the youngsters start to gambol like new lambs. The older ones gather in small, all-girl or all-boy groups to whisper and giggle, as they sneak looks at, or occasionally chase, each other. It is also the time of year when the boys compete to see who can leap up and touch to top of the library door. And now, in the 21st century, there are equal exhibitions of girl power. I needed to rearrange some rather large bookcases in the school’s library. I thought about waiting until some willing grown-ups were at hand, but waiting is not my favorite thing. So, when a group of high-energy, adorable sixth-grade girls wandered in and asked if they could do anything to help, I decided to go with some female muscle. Worry not. I was very cautious. I had no desire to have anyone pull a muscle, female or otherwise. But these girls were amazing. They listened to what I asked, did what I told them, worked as a unit, and, by George, we moved bookcases. And they did it without breaking a sweat. I nearly broke into a Spice Girls song. I was that proud of them. I rewarded them with goofy stuff from the $1 store. They have decided that they are now my go-to muscle crew for any project I might have in the future, and I love that. It’s good to know powerful young women have my back. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who is sorry these adorables are about to hit junior high. Contact her at email@example.com.

Festivals, food, fun hit the road e’louise ondash
emecula Valley, about an hour’s drive from North County, has regular events that reflect its heritage and casual, wine-country culture. Here are a couple: It’s all about chocolate and wine this weekend at the 12th annual Chocolate
Decadence and Pechanga Wine Festival (pechanga.
com/entertain/wine-festival-chocolate-decadence) at The Summit, Pechanga Resort Casino, 45000 Pechanga Parkway, Temecula. The two-day event offers festival-goers the chance to sample some of the hundreds of wine varieties, sweet and savory chocolate confections, gourmet food offered by vendors. Also featured: live music and a silent auction. Proceeds to benefit Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley. Call (877) 711-2946. It’s only March, but really not too early to put this popular event on your calendar. It’s the Temecula
Valley Balloon and Wine Festival (visittemeculavalley.
com/articles/post/temecula-valley-balloon-wine-festival-offers-a-dynamic-blendof-sights-sounds-and-fun/), May 29 to May 31 at the Lake Sinner Recreation Area (25 minutes northeast of Old Town Temecula). Up to 40 balloons will ascend together in the mornings, and at sunset, experience the other-worldly “balloon glow.” Eight balloons tethered to the ground inflate their canopies and simultaneously ignite their burners for a breathtaking sight. As the festival name indicates, wine tasting is also a part of the scene, with 50 local wineries offering samples. Check out visittemeculavalley.com for more on Temecula Valley. Say Nevada and most everyone thinks Las Vegas. But our neighboring state has oh-so-many other fascinating places to see — like the Carson Valley (visitcarsonv a l ley.org / u lt i mate carson-valley-bucket-list20-must-dos-in-2020), just southeast of Lake Tahoe. This area, bordered on the east by the eye-popping peaks of the Sierras, is the destination for serious and amateur photographers
alike when hundreds of bald eagles arrive for the annual winter/spring calving season. Other things to do: Visit Genoa, which features the Genoa Bar, Nevada’s oldest “thirst parlor” and mule deer that saunter casually around town and local subdivisions. (Though Carson Valley’s population includes many hunters, don’t even think about putting these town mascots in your sites.) Not to miss: the Basque family dining experience at J T Basque Bar & Dining Room in Gardnerville, owned by the progeny of local sheep herders, where the food is excellent, plentiful and reasonably priced. For more, visitcarsonvalley.org. The winter and spring months also are the best times to visit our state’s coastal towns because — you know — the tourists haven’t arrived yet. It’s also a time to stage festivals like Mermaid Month (venturaharborvillage.com/ event/march-is-mermaidmonth-2020), hosted by Ventura Harbor Village. Special events are held on March 7 and March 21, including a parade, kids’ activities, chalk art, special “sea-sonal” cuisine at local restaurants and more. (P.S. The drive to Ventura is pretty spectacular, too.) Visit VenturaHarborVillage.com. If you’ve been considering riding the rails, now’s the time. Amtrak Pacific Surfliner (pacificsurfliner.com) is offering a deal between now and May 31. Purchase a full-fare ticket and get the second one for half price. From Oceanside, you can visit San Juan Capistrano for Swallows Day (March 21); Santa Barbara’s Earth Day Festival (April 17-19); and the bustling neighborhood around Los Angeles’ Union Station. Visit PacificSurfliner.com/bogo. California wines, beers and barbecue will be celebrated this year at events organized by California Wine Festival (californiawinefestival.com) in three local, ocean-view locations: Dana Point (April 17 and 18); Carlsbad (May 29 and 30); and Oceanside (Sept. 26). The festivals offer rare and reserve vintages, wine and food pairings, artisan cheeses, live music and more. Visit website for more details.

ESCONDIDO — The San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum recently launched its first-ever mural contest with the goal of bringing together the North County community while highlighting the artists in the region. The winners of the contest, which has a theme of “The Joy of Being Outside,” will see his or her work displayed on a 20-by-16-feet canvas outside of the highly trafficked children’s museum. The space is currently occupied by work of Aled Anaya, an Escondido art teacher. Wendy Taylor, executive director of the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, said the nonprofit decided to launch the project because they saw it as a “unique opportunity.” “With 170,000 visitors coming through our doors each year and many more driving past us on North Broadway, we saw a unique opportunity to use our building as a platform for artists and community to engage in meaningful conversations about art, childhood, belonging, and environmental consciousness,” Taylor said. “The museum is looking forward to presenting a contest that will involve the community and North County museums in a meaningful way.” The contest, which is being sponsored with a County of San Diego grant, is open to any artists over the age of 18. Soudabeh Mermazadeh, an art instructor at Del Lago Academy, and Chrisanne Moats, director of the Escondido Arts Partnership, are among a handful of jurors who will be tasked with narrowing down the entries
before the public decides on a winner. “We’re excited to include in our jury not only museum professionals and artists, but also local high school students, museum supporters, and the general public — since shortlisted artworks will be submitted to an online public vote to select the winning entries,” Taylor said. Taylor said artists who are hopeful to have their work displayed on the billboard are encouraged to “reflect on environmental stewardship and education, and submit artworks that spark reflection and conversation.” Two winners will be selected with each mural on display for six months. “The jury is interested in artworks that explore the unique feelings of freedom, hope and joy characteristic of childhood, that are often found in relationships with
the outdoors,” Taylor said. “What does a child’s fearless connection to the land mean?” “This is an exciting opportunity for artists,” Beth Marino, associate director for the California Center for the Arts, which is partnering with the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum on the mural contest, said. “Aside from the personal achievement of having their art selected for such a public venue, we hope that they see and help promote Escondido as a community that has a vibrant and thriving art scene.” Of course, it isn’t just the winning artist who will benefit from having his or her artwork on display. Taylor said the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum’s visitors will also appreciate the mural. “We are excited to print our first winning entry
in the spring, and to watch children and families interact with the art,” Taylor said. “We hope our visitors will be inspired to participate in the public vote, so that the artworks going up are truly reflective of our community. .” “Public art inspires and uplifts,” Marino said. “We hope that artists take into consideration and are inspired by the community of Escondido.” The deadline for the contest is midnight Friday, March 27. The jury will narrow the entries down to 10 pieces, which will then be decided on by the public online. The two winning artworks will be announced on May 11 with the first piece on display from May to October and the second on display beginning November.

Council approves ‘Kites over Vista’ artists for 2020 By Steve Puterski
VISTA — During its Feb. 25 meeting, the Vista City Council once again approved the “Kites over Vista” public art program for $20,500. In its 12th year, the city approved six sculptures to grace its downtown landscape. The Public Arts Commission received 12 proposals from nine artists, according to Therron Dieckmann, Vista’s director of recreation and community services. The artists must deliver their pieces to the city by May 1. The art is raised several feet off the ground and dots the skyline as a kite would. “It’s provided a venue to showcase sculptures in downtown Vista,” he said. According to the city, the annual program has numerous goals. Those include enhancing the city through unique and original artwork; stimulating public interest of art and artists; engaging and educating vis-

itors about the city’s public art program, the selected artist and the featured artwork; and providing a venue for artists to promote their art. In October 2019, staff released a “Call to Artists” for the 12th exhibit of the
“Kites Over Vista” display. The competition was open to all artists, and selection criteria included artistic merit, materials used, appropriateness of artwork, and public safety. “I’m a sucker for art,” Councilman Joe Green said.
I’m Ready . . . For New Friendships
The artists include Alex Gall of Vista, Dave Weaver, David Terrell and Noe Estrada of Oceanside, Kellen Shanahan of Fallbrook, Norberto Estrada of San Marcos and Vicki Leon of San Diego. Each artist will be paid $2,500 for their artwork, while the city will also cover steel display poles for $4,025 and $2,500 for installation. Gall’s piece is “Midnight Nectar,” which features a hummingbird feeding on Vista’s city flower. Noe Estrada’s work is titled “Sea Life” and its design is to bring awareness to sea life, ocean diversity and awareness. Weaver and Terrell, who are returning artists to the program, are teaming up to create the “Aeolian Butterfly.” There concept centers on the wind, which plays the aeolian harp and is played by butterflies. Also, they have included a radio transmitter, so motorists driving by can
tune into 90.5 FM and can listen to “the music of the wind,” according to the staff report. “Passersby within 100 feet can tune in … and they will have a sound component that will tie into the concept,” Dieckmann added. Shanahan’s piece is called “Beacon” and was generated by an algorithm, “borrowing from the mathematics of coral and plant growth,” according to the report. It consists of marine life, chaparral and rolling hills, which define Southern California. Norberto Estrada’s piece is “Dark Ship” and shows a different perspective about ships and the way they moved to create the base of pirate vessels. Leon created the “Dreamcatcher Totem,” which uses kite-like shapes in a spiral course mimicking the trail of a kite’s tail. Also, it will be lit in the inside using solar power captured during the day.

board voted to place the Newland Sierra project on the ballot. Opponents collected roughly 117,000 signatures of North County residents hoping to block the project. Measure B supporters included the Republican Party of San Diego County and several mayors, including Paul McNamara of Escondido and San Marcos' Rebecca Jones. Opponents included the San Diego Sierra Club, San Diego Democratic Party, San Diego Democrats for Environmental Action and other regional environmental groups. The vote on the other measure regarding development in the county is close, but it appears that voters won't be getting the final say over housing developments in unincorporated areas, thanks to the apparent defeat of a ballot measure in the primary election. Measure A on Tuesday's ballot would have required a countywide vote on any major housing project that involves a change to the county's general plan. As of Wednesday morning, “no” votes held a 51%49% lead. Under the measure, developers wanting to build six homes or more would have needed permission from voters — rather than the approval of just three county supervisors — if the project is outside the general plan guidelines for urban growth. Also known as the Safeguard Our San Diego Countryside Initiative, Measure A was supported by environmental groups including the Environmental Health Coalition, land-use groups and activists opposed to urban and suburban sprawl.
Did you know that the #1 cause of leg pain is due to vein disease? More than 25 percent of people in the United States suffer from vein disease or varicose veins. Symptoms can have a wide range of severity depending on the extent of disease. Some people may just have a few isolated spider veins while others may have painful, bulging varicose veins. Varicose veins are surface veins that are enlarged, swollen and/or bulging due to underlying vein disease. If left untreated, varicose veins can lead to more serious concerns over time due to the progressive nature of the disease. Varicose veins often progress over time and are worsened by prolonged standing, pregnancy, or excessive weight. Along with being unsightly and painful, varicose veins and vein disease can cause a wide range of According to the Save Our Countryside website, the Measure A campaign was led by San Diegans for Managed Growth, which describes itself as a “prosmart growth” organization. Elected officials backing the measure included outgoing county Supervisor Dianne Jacob; Georgette Gomez, the San Diego city councilwoman now running for a Congressional seat, and the mayors of Encinitas, Escondido and Solana Beach. Backers said it would make the development process fair, while opponents described Measure A as anti-growth and anti-housing. According to an official website, Measure A opponents included the Democratic and Republican parties of San Diego; numerous law enforcement organizations; building groups; two county supervisors; and three city mayors, including San Diego's Kevin Faulconer. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Gaspar, Lawson-Remer lead in District 3 The Board of Supervisors race between two Democrats to advance to the general election appears to have been settled. Terra Lawson-Remer, a former Obama administration official, was leading Escondido Councilwoman Olga Diaz by more than 4,000 votes (29%-24%) in the race to advance to the primary election for the District 3 seat. Incumbent Kristin Gaspar ran away with the primary win, leaving Lawson-Remer and Diaz to slug it out. Lawson-Remer said on March 4 she has not called

the victory and is playing the waiting game for the next several days as election results are updated online. Regardless of her positioning, she said it was a big day for Democrats and for a new direction on the board. “I think the overwhelming message from last night is that the majority of the voters in the district have rejected Kristin Gaspar,” Lawson-Remer said. “They are looking for new leadership on the county Board of Supervisors. We’ve run a really good race and we’re looking really strong.” Gaspar, meanwhile, recorded 46% of the vote and her campaign manager, Jason Roe, said her showing was better than expected. Noting the high Democratic turnout due to the presidential primary, Roe said Democrats had more reason to turn out than Republicans, which he said won’t be the
case come November. As for Gaspar’s likely challenger, Roe said Lawson-Remer’s “far left” policies will drive more independents to Gaspar. “I think Kristin’s showing is demonstrating cross-over appeal to independents and moderate democrats,” he added. “I think going into November, it will be a stark contrast between Kristin and a far left progressive that is going to probably receive more than $1 million SEIU (Services Employees International Union) backing.” — Steve Puterski 50TH HOUSE DISTRICT

Campa-Najjar will head to a November runoff election to fill the post now left vacant by Hunter's resignation. Campa-Najjar, 31, topped a nine-candidate field in the traditionally conservative 50th Congressional District to advance to the runoff. “Last night we made history, as the only campaign in 40 years to win an election in this district with a name other than Duncan Hunter,’’ Campa-Najjar said, referring to the recently ousted Hunter and his father, with whom he shares a name, who was a representative of the 42nd, 45th and 52nd districts from 1981 to 2009. “I’m grateful to the thousands of Republicans, Independents, and Democrats who once again voted to elect me as their next congressman. “As the clear frontrunner in the race, I promise to continue to earn the trust of voters by focusing on issues such as the high cost of living; cutting middle class taxes; reducing prescription drug costs; fixing our failed immigration system; supporting our veterans; repairing our roads and mitigating wildfires; and protecting Medicare and Social Security.” Former Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, 66, who is seeking to return to the House, where he served from 2001 to 2019, will take on Campa-Najjar in November. With all precincts reporting, Issa appeared to outlast fellow Republican Carl DeMaio in the race for second place, albeit by about 3 percentage points. Issa was cautiously optimistic in his election night comments. “The last poll before the election had us at six points ahead, so if we count

A common misconception is that vein procedures are not covered by insurance. In fact, most treatments for symptomatic varicose veins are covered by insurance when certain criteria are met.

earlier polls saying we were 12 points behind I figure we might finish somewhere around three points ahead,” he said. “But I never take anything for granted, especially the voters.” No other candidate in the race mounted a serious challenge, including Republican state Sen. Brian Jones, who ran a distant fourth. The 50th District seat was left vacant following Hunter's guilty plea to misusing $250,000 in campaign funds and subsequent resignation in January. The 50th District encompasses parts of North County, including San Marcos and Escondido, most of east San Diego County and a portion of Riverside County.

about 100 feet from an elementary school. Sheeter was arrested Tuesday morning, but has since been released from custody and ordered to appear in San Diego federal court on Friday. The indictment, which was returned by a grand jury last month, is the result of a multi-year investigation into activities at the residence, and involved federal wiretaps, undercover drug purchases and surveillance, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “It’s not unreasonable to expect our neighbors to be law abiding citizens,” sheriff’s Capt. Justin White said. “Unfortunately, Mr. Sheeter allegedly felt he was above the law with little regard for his neighbors and how illegal activity would affect everyone's quality of life.”

MARCH 6, 2020
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Change is still dominant for Rams and Ewes, both in the workplace and their private lives. This is also a good time to look at a possible relocation if that has been one of your goals. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Doing things for others is what you do well. But don’t forget that Bovines thrive on the arts, so make some time for yourself to indulge your passion for music and artistic expressions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) While the Romantic Twin considers where to go for his or her upcoming vacation, the Practical Twin will start making travel plans now to take advantage of some great bargains. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your sensitive nature helps you deal with a difficult emotional situation. Be patient and continue to show your sincere support wherever (and for whomever) it is needed. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You’re making progress as you move through some unfamiliar territory. And while there might be a misstep or two along the way, overall you’re heading in the right direction. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Some good news arrives — and just in time to remind you that you’re making progress. Perhaps things aren’t moving as quickly as you’d prefer, but they’re moving nevertheless.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) This is a good week to step back and assess the facts that have recently emerged to see where they can be used to your advantage. Also, don’t hesitate to make changes where necessary. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You should begin to experience some support from those who now agree with your point of view. This should help counter the remaining objections from die-hard skeptics. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Don’t let your aim be deflected by trivial matters as you try to resolve a confusing situation. Take time to find and thoroughly assess the facts before making any decision. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The possibility of moving to another location has come up. But before you dismiss it as unworkable, it’s worth checking out just in case it does have some merit after all. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) New relationships — personal or work-related — show mixed signals. Best to assume nothing. Let things play themselves out until you have something substantive to work with. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your ability to make needed changes without causing too much, if any, negative ripple effect comes in handy when dealing with a sensitive matter either on the job or in the family. BORN THIS WEEK: Although you like things to go smoothly, you’re not shy about making waves when you believe the situation calls for it. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
