Escondido police win court fight By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — In an April 25 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit concluded that the Escondido Police Department did not commit an unconstitutional violation during a May 2013 altercation in which a resident was tackled to the ground. The U.S. Supreme Court had remanded the Emmons v Escondido case to the appeals court in the aftermath of its January ruling. Marty Emmons, the original plaintiff in the federal case which began in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in 2014, alleges that the police acted outside the bounds of the Fourth Amendment constitutional protection against “unreasonable searches and seizures” by rushing to use force on him at the time. The city of Escondido has argued that the “qualified immunity” doctrine developed over years of federal court rulings prevents such a legal complaint from bearing fruit. Qualified immunity gives broad deference to law enforcement during use of force incidents. Emanating from a 2011 9th Circuit case, Ashcroft v. al-Kidd, which created a test of what a “reasonable official would have understood that what he is doing violates that right.” TURN TO POLICE ON 14

REGION — A man accused of opening fire inside a Poway synagogue, killing a woman and injuring three other people, pleaded not guilty May 14 to more than 100 federal hate crime charges alleging he acted out of hatred toward the Jewish and Muslim communities. John T. Earnest, 19, is accused not only of the synagogue shooting but also of an earlier arson fire at an Escondido mosque. He is being charged by both federal and state prosecutors and faces a possible death sentence in both cases. Neither office has made a decision regarding whether they will pursue the death penalty. Earnest, of Rancho Penasquitos, is accused of carrying out the shooting at Chabad of Poway on April 27 — the last day of Passover — killing Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, who was shot twice in the synagogue's foyer and died at a hospital. The congregation's rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, 57, lost an index finger in the shooting. Two other people — Almog Peretz, 34, and his 8-year-old niece, Noya Dahan — were also injured.

SAN MARCOS — A group of residents is fanning the flames of opposition over a proposed crematorium at Allen Brothers Mortuary in San Marcos with concerns of potential health risks and increased air pollution.

Palomar College considers campus housing proposal

Seeking close encounter of the third kind small talk jean gillette


ne of these days, I am going to turn up at the “Contact in the Desert” out near Palm Springs, or maybe AlienCon is Los Angeles or perhaps the International UFO Conference in Phoenix. One part of me thinks they are probably filled with rather gullible people, but another very determined part of me absolutely delights in the prospect of getting the lowdown on who might be “out there.” Even in my most rational moments, I just can’t discount the possibility. Sadly, I would have been one of those giddy people atop the Capitol Records building in “Independence Day,” shouting “Come on down for cocktails!” I am just that curious. My only moments of pause come from the classic “Twilight Zone” episode featuring the book “To Serve Man” — which turned out to be a cookbook. Or I remember my TV favorites like “Earth, the Final Conflict.” I so wanted to trust the Taelons, darn it. In spite of the possible

consequences, I continue to think that coming upon extraterrestrials would be so completely fascinating, that I would jump at the chance. And even if I tried to completely discount their existence, I have the testimony of my very pragmatic Air Force jet pilot father. He quietly mentioned one day, that from time to time, they would encounter something that could outmaneuver and outrun any aircraft he was aware of. It still gives me chills, because my dad was never given to flights of fancy. It occurs to me now that there isn’t too much aliens could do to us that we have not already done to ourselves — well, almost. Meanwhile, I feed my obsession watching all the incredible photos and experiments coming in from our various successful space exploration projects. I will remain thrilled that I get an up-close look at Jupiter and Mars in my lifetime, even though there may be nobody home. And to top it off, I see that “Men In Black 4” is coming in June. What a way to start my summer. I think I need to get some new sunglasses. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer and No. 1 fan of Marvin the Martian. Contact her at

SAN MARCOS — At its April 23 meeting, the Palomar College Governing Board considered a proposal to build housing at the school’s San Marcos campus. Brought forward by the Chicago-based Scion Group, the firm presented the findings of a survey it had distributed to the Palomar College student body — as well as focus groups it organized — to gauge student and employee interest in campus housing. The results, said Scion Group, shows sufficient interest to build about 750 beds on campus for students. “The survey was sent to all of your students by way of an email link from the college,” explained Ann Volz, a real estate consultant for Scion Group. “And we can't close that survey until what we have is this statistically appropriate response that gives that proven confidence factor. So (we kept it open) until we reached that, and I think we even left it open a little bit longer because we got the reasonable response rate so quickly.” According to a presentation given by Aejin Yoon, a project consultant for Scion Group, units would cost students a range of $750 to $1,000 per month. Yoon said that the focus groups she organized bore out that cost was a major concern for Palomar’s students. “A lot of stories were shared regarding the homeless students on this campus and how the (campus) community is feeling very sad and sharing the frus-

tration of theirs,” said Yoon. “And some students that we met in the focus groups were sharing with us some stories that there are fun events going on at campus, but they can't even think of going there because they have to hit the road because 15 minutes of traffic can turn into two hours easily.” Palomar College’s Institutional Research and Planning department data says that 45% of its student base is classified as economically disadvantaged. During the question and answer portion of the presentation, trustee Nina Deerfield expressed concern about the cost of the housing proposal, asking whether students would be able to afford it. She said the students she has spoken to have told her they are looking for housing prices “way below” the amount estimated in Scion Group’s projections. Campus housing at neighboring Cal State University San Marcos costs students $8,200 to $8,800 for a standard double-bed dorm room, or over $900 per month. Palomar College President Joi Lin Blake, in response, stated that the housing costs could be covered if students take out additional loans. “One of the things, if the district decides to move forward, is we’ll be working with our financial aid office because the financial aid receipts will increase because housing is part of that package,” Blake said. “So, for example, the student awards are going to increase because student housing would be available. That’s what they do at the universities.” Blake also said having housing on campus would help students who have long commutes from places such as Borrego Springs and Ramona. “They could come stay here during the week and then go home,” said Blake. Peter Hofman, an analyst for Scion Group, said that the campus housing would be funded at a 1.2 debt service coverage ratio for Palomar College. Hofman explained that number is a typical real estate industry standard for developers working with clients to finance projects. “(T)ypically when going out for a public private partnerships, the developers are looking for at least the 1.2 coverage, which indicates a little buffer between breaking even and cash flowing on the project,” Hofman detailed. Volz said that a realistic timeline, were the community college to decide to build campus housing, would be having the units on campus by 2022 or 2023.

Vista plaza debate continues By Steve Puterski

VISTA — Two residents and business owners have a vision for a small plaza in downtown Vista. Dubbed the Vista Town Square Public Market by Julie and Dave Lowen, the area currently has an arbor and about two dozen parking spaces. During the April 30 City Council meeting, though, a spirited discussion was brewing over what the city-owned property should become. The Lowens’ idea also would eventually have the public market ranging from Main Street to Eucalyptus Avenue and from Citrus Avenue to Santa Fe Avenue. The idea was conceived by looking at Madison, Wisconsin, and Santa Monica, Julie Lowen said. Council members Joe Green and Corinna Contreras were not in favor of the proposal, instead backing a plan to add several trees and field turf. Mayor Julie Ritter and Councilwoman Amanda Rigby also preferred the city option, but said perhaps the Lowen project could be incorporated at some point. Councilman John Franklin was in support of waiting to investigate the Lowen proposal more thoroughly. The council approved to bring the capital improvement project with possible modifications and cost estimates for evaluating the Lowen proposal. “I know these people and I like these people and want their businesses to thrive,” Lowen said. “This would drive the change and people would have to stop. They have to go by it. And it would be so flipping cool, they’d want to stop.” But the Lowen plan is more aggressive, starting with the smaller plaza, to activate the space to spur business growth and entertainment in the lot at the southeast corner of South Indiana Avenue and Main Street adjacent to Belching Beaver Brewery. Lowen, along with the City Council, said the current space has become an area for homeless, drugs and gangs. The Lowens own the building at 221 Main Street, which houses their other business Children’s Paradise early infant care TURN TO PLAZA ON 14

TV, film co-working space to open in July By Steve Puterski

VISTA — While Hollywood is the epicenter for the small and silver screens, a new local opportunity is around the corner for budding artists and businesses. The Film Hub is a collaborative effort from Lauren Fehlhaber and her father and business partner Jim Ellis, who also owns Inspired Images Studios in Vista. The incubator-type facility opens July 1 at 170 Eucalyptus Ave. Beginning in June, the two will open The Film Hub for tours. The concept is to bring together burgeoning new artists or businesses looking for marketing and video production opportunities and give them a jump-start toward creating their media. The 12,500-square-foot facility contains a sound stage, six audio recording rooms, a control room, editing suite, a set kitchen, foley pits, a hair and makeup area and event space for the public. “The culture is cooperation not competition,” Ellis said. “It’s like car dealers. You put them all together and they all benefit. We can pull people together with like industry and really help each other. Every corner of this building is designed for shooting.” Ellis and Fehlhaber said the drive for the new venture was to highlight Vista, and by extension North County, as a film-friendly community. They found their location, the old Post Office, and the idea for a co-working space and the history as an artistic community made sense,

Ellis said. Fehlhaber said people who enjoy co-working spaces gravitate toward more active locations, such as a downtown area with coffee shops and restaurants. The city of Vista has been aggressive in its pursuit of drawing more visitors, businesses and working talent to downtown over the past several year. “We saw the up-and-

coming downtown environment developing in this area,” she added. “Our first vision for the space was have an incubator for the different industries in video production and marketing agencies.” Perhaps the biggest reason they started The Film Hub, the two said, is it allows individuals from the TV and film industry as well as entrepreneurs

or small businesses, to network, collaborate and develop a project. In addition, private rooms are available so a team can work in private. The Film Hub’s draw is the amenities, Ellis said, which includes a sound stage, sets and foley pits for sound effects. Affordable membership costs are another draw, Fehlhaber said. Monthly

memberships range between $150 to $850 per month. The cost to produce commercials and marketing material, not to mention TV or films, is a barrier for those starting in the industry or smaller businesses. Video production can run hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for a single projTURN TO FILM ON 13

Lying lawyers in business while state bar investigates


We need freeways, roads


e are at a crucial point in the future of San Diego County. There seems to be a growing trend of pushing people out their cars and making them take public transportation, as if driving vehicles is somehow evil. SANDAG (San Diego Association of Governments) is in charge of appropriating transportation dollars in our region. It’s made up of the region’s 18 cities and the county. In 2004, San Diegans voted to extend a half-cent sales tax for 40 years. That tax would generate $14 billion dollars, which SANDAG promised to relieve traffic congestion, improve safety and match state/federal funds by improving, I-5, I-8, I-15, SR 52, SR 54, SR 56, SR 67, SR 76, SR 78, SR 94, SR 125, I-805. Voters passed this under the impression their commute home would be made faster and easier.

around the county Jim Desmond This has not happened. Instead, SANDAG staff front-loaded the public transit projects while leaving 14 of the highway projects unfunded. Now, they’ve announced that they want to implement a new transportation vision. One that doesn’t include roads and freeways, but focuses on transit, even though the current tax San Diegans are paying for promised improvements to roads and freeways. Mass transit works in the urban core, but freeways and roads are critical to our transportation system. A functioning road network is an essential element of our economy. It’s common sense to

know that for the foreseeable future we must have freeways, highways and roads. Currently, 3.5% of San Diegans ride public transit, which means the rest of the 96.5% of people need their cars and most importantly need their roads. Children need to get to school, parents need to get to their jobs, this can’t be done strictly using mass transit. SANDAG must keep faith with promises to voters. The TransNet tax was adopted because the voters were persuaded that the road projects to be funded were critical and going to be funded. To now break those promises, barely one-fourth of the way into a 40-year plan, would be a massive bait and switch. Jim Desmond represents District 5 on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. He is the former mayor of San Marcos.

Let’s honor — and help — our veterans By Marie Waldron

May is National Military Appreciation Month, and includes several national observances honoring our veterans and their families. These include Victory in Europe (VE) Day on May 8, Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 10, Armed Forces Day on May 18 and Memorial Day on May 27. But supporting our veterans involves more than holidays or national commemorations. This session I have joined with Assemblyman William Brough (R–Dana Point) to co-author Assembly Bill 427. The bill would exclude military retirement pay from the state’s income tax. Twenty states do not tax military benefits at all

and 13 only tax a portion. States excluding military retirement pay from the income tax include Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. In fact, California is one of only eight states that fully taxes military retirement pay! California is home to 1.8 million veterans, 8% of all veterans living in the United States. Since many service members are able to retire after 20 years, they have decades of their working lives ahead of them. Veterans who were stationed at places like Camp Pendleton often fall in love with our state and would prefer to live here after retirement. We should do all

we can to help them do just that by joining other states that don’t tax military retirement pay. Our veterans have never failed us, and we shouldn’t fail them. The men and women who have worn the uniform, often at great risk and sacrifice, have protected and defended all of us. Eliminating the state income tax on the benefits they have earned is something we should be proud to do for them. Making California more affordable for our veterans will benefit everyone. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature.

t turns out the weary old joke about how other people can tell when lawyers are lying (when their lips are moving) might be in need of a new punchline: For some lawyers, it’s when they fill out their State Bar Association membership and renewal applications. That’s the stunning takeaway from a new California rule requiring lawyers to be fingerprinted not only when they apply for bar membership, but also when they apply for renewal. Just days before the April 30 fingerprinting deadline, 158,000 attorneys had submitted fingerprints, 83 percent of active California lawyers. Using those fingerprints, the state Department of Justice and the bar association — licensing and regulatory authority for all California attorneys — turned up 2,699 members who had committed crimes they did not report on their applications, either when first applying or when renewing, or when the crimes were actually committed. Of those, 40 were felonies, most before 2005, and 2,659 were misdemeanors. Another 140 FBI records (which include federal offenses from other states and state offenses committed outside California) were still unclear as to whether they involved felonies or misdemeanors. With misdemeanors, attorneys are only required to report those involving “moral turpitude” and ones committed in their practice, or in which clients were victims. The bar doesn’t yet know how many of the unreported crimes fit those categories. The upshot: As many as 1.7 percent of all California lawyers apparently tried to hide past crimes. If client recruiting were about equal among all lawyers, that would mean almost two

california focus thomas d. elias of every 100 Californians seeking legal work on subjects from wills to criminal defense and personal injuries might be hiring a documentable liar. Said one San Francisco attorney, “This shows what a very good thing it was to put in the new fingerprint rule.” But so far, the bar association has not suspended or disbarred anyone. Nor has it published names of any member-liars. “There’s a process we have to go through, so they’re still practicing law,” said a bar association spokeswoman. “These things have just been transferred to state bar investigators. The entire (fingerprinting) process is new…so we have a backlog.” She added that investigators’ emphasis is on serious crimes, especially those committed after the documented liars became lawyers. The bar has strong rules about who can join and attorneys can be disbarred for criminal convictions involving moral turpitude or for “other misconduct involving discipline.” The lawyer group’s list of crimes demonstrating moral turpitude (defined as “an act of baseness, vileness or depravity…”) includes murder, rape, solicitation to commit assault, perjury, mail fraud, security violations and grand theft. Other misconduct warranting discipline includes drunk driving, domestic violence and failure to file federal tax returns. Suspension of a

lawyer’s license is the “presumed sanction” for felonies not involving moral turpitude, but bar applicants can also be denied for lack of positive moral character. A criminal history is one way to demonstrate this. At a spring meeting of the agency’s Regulation and Discipline Committee, a member asked whether lawyers putting off or avoiding fingerprinting are “likely to be the worst offenders.” Bar staff essentially said “maybe.” Today’s reality, then, is that while the bar investigates its corps of liars, potential clients cannot know when they’re dealing with one. They will only learn lawyers are certified liars or worse after those attorneys are suspended and all appeals exhausted. At that point, suspended or disbarred lawyers must notify all clients in writing. One question here is why the preponderance of lawyers who are honest have not yet raised objections to the delay in sanctioning those whose fingerprints reveal them as past criminals, especially felons. When so many active lawyers are known to be miscreants, all lawyers can be suspect, since clients and potential clients can’t tell who’s who. One reason may be that lawyers make their livings on the constitutional principle of due process, so many may be reluctant to limit that right for their colleagues. Which leaves potential clients at risk of hiring dishonest lawyers for an as-yet undefined period. So far, neither the state bar nor any of its members has offered solutions for this obvious problem.

Days after synagogue attack, CSUSM rededicates Holocaust memorial By Steve Horn

SAN MARCOS — On May 1, at the Forum Plaza at Cal State University San Marcos, university officials and representatives participated in a rededication ceremony for the restoration of an iconic Holocaust memorial. Named the White Rose Memorial, the public art piece has sat since 2003 near the front of the university’s Arts Building. It pays homage to three non-Jewish students at Munich University who were executed via guillotine by the Nazi government for acts of peaceful resistance in opposition to the regime as part of a group called the White Rose Society. The ceremony took place just four days after a shooting inspired by anti-Semitism occurred at Chabad of Poway, allegedly committed by CSUSM nursing student John Earnest. While the day’s events were scheduled long before the Poway shooting, which saw one synagogue member killed and several other wounded, most of those who spoke in front of the white rose display discussed it. Among them were CSUSM art students Sarah Bricke and Kimberly Lopez, who led the design efforts for the retooled White Rose Memorial. “Before we can fully affect change, we must fully understand the world that we live in,” said Bricke,

speaking to a crowd of over 100 people. “We live in a country where people are afraid to worship, where students are afraid to go to school. Simply put, we live in the kind of country that the White Rose resistance gave their lives to prevent.” CSUSM President Karen Haynes, who will retire at the end of the academic year, also mentioned the Poway synagogue shooting in her remarks. “Like all of you, I was dismayed and disheartened

to learn that the alleged shooter was a CSUSM student,” Haynes said. “His actions and beliefs are antithetical to everything we stand for at this university. In trying to find some comfort in this difficult time, it has been reassuring to see how our campus has come together in solidarity and support of the victims, their families, friends and our entire community.” Sophie Nadler, the president of CSUSM Hillel — a campus student Jew-

ish organization — said she also believes the art’s presence on-campus symbolizes interfaith solidarity. “For me, the White Rose means so much,” Nadler said. “My heart warms every time I walk past it. I think it symbolizes the strength of the CSUSM students in our community and how we all fight against hate. Walking by this memorial every day will continue to remind me that there are so many people fighting against anti-Semitism.”

The White Rose Memorial was originally created by then-CSUSM art student Cynthia Joseph. Not merely a monument, visitors can also water the rose, making it an interactive experience. “(Joseph’s) idea to base the entire work on a participatory element brings you into an active stance in history,” said CSUSM art history and cultural theory professor Andrea Liss, author of the book “Trespassing through Shadows: Memory,

Photography and the Holocaust.” “That’s bringing the concept of inter subjectivity from past to present, idea into gesture, and movement into thought and action.“ Liss also explained the difficulty of creating public art about a moment of historical trauma. “Adding to the extreme difficulty of conceptualizing aspects of the events through creative means is that the artists who confront this task now did not experience the events,” said Liss. “Thus, this post-witnessing presents difficult conundrums about how to respectfully represent aspects of this genocidal history and its subsequent traumas without disrespecting and revictimizing those whose humanity was so beautiful.” The events memorialized by the White Rose public art are also featured in the film, “Sophie Scholl – The Final Days,” a 2005 movie nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Joseph, the artist who created the installation, said in a November CSUSM press release that she hopes the edifice exists on-campus long into the future. The university had to raise $4,600 to restore the piece. “I call it an iron vase,” Joseph said. “It symbolizes the resistance to those who would deprive people of their personal freedoms. I invite people to water the plant, to add life.”

Padres show change in season’s first quarter CSUSM at sports talk jay paris


he Padres pull alongside the season’s quarter pole and, really, the ride has been a hoot. No longer laughing stocks, no longer the MLB’s version of a welcome mat visitors wipe their feet on, the Padres have shown spunk and sparkled enough to make any team — yes even the big, bad Dodgers — take notice. It should be another fun weekend at Petco Park, where the local nine greets the Pirates and Diamondbacks in a seven-game homestand. The roster is a blend of players trying to prove they are worth the dough — Manny Machado, Eric Hosmer, Wil Myers — and others earning their stripes, Fernando Tatis, Jr. and a flurry of young arms, most bringing heat instead of hesitation.

The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce and its Ready Carlsbad Business Alliance will hold the Fire Awareness Symposium from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. May 17 at the Carlsbad Safety Center, 2560 Orion Way, Carlsbad. The goal is to spread awareness of fire hazard in southern California and teach wildfire preparedness.


The Life lecture series continues at 1 p.m. May 17 in the administration building at the Oceanside College Campus, 1 Barnard Drive,

are relevant. While Machado is an attention-getter, in various ways, these eyes usually drift toward Tatis. He’s the 20-year-old shortstop with range and time on his side and he’s already made his share of dazzling plays. So much, and with reverence, many longtime Padres watchers compare Tatis to the incomparable Ozzie Smith.

We’re not quite there because Smith covered most of Mission Valley long before Tatis was born. But a star is being hatched in Tatis, with a bum hamstring about the only the thing to slow down his thrilling rookie season. While the excitement meter climbed a gear in San Diego, some living in North County are in the shadows of another show.

Lefty MacKenzie Gore, the team’s top prospect, is buzzing through Class A Advanced lineups at Lake Elsinore. Gore likely makes his debut next year, then again the manner in which the Padres’ conveyor belt delivers fresh arms, maybe Big Mac is here sooner. Those Storm fans saw a similar entree when Chris Paddack passed through in

2018. He’s gone on to provide the varsity with swagger and strikeouts with his showdown against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday drawing interest around the Majors. Dull, the Padres aren’t, and we praise Encinitas’ A.J. Preller, the general manager, and club ownership, for making it so. So far, so good with the Padres delivering entertaining baseball. After eight straight losing seasons and Mays usually bringing a share of Padres gray (brown?) and their customers deserve some sunshine. Please enjoy it because things can change fast, especially with the overabundance of inexperienced starting pitching. We remind many that on May 14 last year the fourth-place Dodgers were eight games under .500. They went on to the World Series, a destination few are predicting for the Padres, regardless of their considerable strides. Still it’s fun to make it to the 7th-inning stretch during Padres games without being tempted to leave Petco Park or flip the channel. The Padres might not be must-see TV yet, but most of those looking in like what they see.

Escondido alters land use policy, awaits state By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — At its May 1 meeting, the Escondido City Council voted unanimously to approve a “density transfer” land use policy for real estate developers. The policy will offer zoning permit flexibility for those with development projects in the city. The policy is a key part of what Mayor Paul McNamara campaigned on, slowing down “sprawl” style housing development in favor of developing “infill” style housing in the city’s downtown core. The city has touted the amendment to its Downtown Specific Plan as a means of both getting cars off the road while also moving people closer to the downtown public transit center’s rail and bus lines. Density transfer would “help incentivize future development and keep it in the downtown area to support nearby retailers, services, entertainment, and attract other businesses that are part of a desirable downtown economy,” said Bill Martin, principal planner with the city, during his presentation before the council.


misconceptions, myths or other unknown issues.” The petition, initiated by San Marcos resident Ralph Desiena, states that if the project goes forth, “serious health risks could affect YOU,” including an increased risk of respiratory issues and cancer, “odor impacts and black smoke.” Desiena, 66, said his primary concern is increased levels of mercury and dioxins, a group of toxic chemical compounds produced from trash burning and fuels such as coal, wood and oil. “My concern is adding more emissions,” Desiena said. “Do we really need to expose people to that? I don’t feel like anything like this should be in a zone that borders residential areas.” Desiena pointed to last year’s fire at Cortez Cremations and Funeral Services in National City after an oven door failed to close while in use, sending smoke and human ashes billowing into the air. “If something goes wrong, it’s going to be spewing out a lot of stuff,” Desiena said. Several signees that live in the Twin Oaks area wrote that a crematory would add to already high pollution levels generated from nearby state Route 78 and Highway 15. “I also don’t want ashes of burning bodies to rain down on my home or breathe toxic fumes,” one resident wrote. Another wrote, “Right by my residence and don’t want the smell of burning bodies to be a new normal.” But when it comes to odor and emissions, Allen said there really isn’t much to worry about. “People think there is

Mayor Paul McNamara

“The overall amount of new development within the downtown would remain the same. However, if a new project leaves some density on the table and doesn't build out their site fully, the program creates a flexible way to achieve the ultimate build-out of the downtown and create a future sustainable center of activity.” Martin also called density transfer a form of development centered around “smart growth locations, rather than sprawl, which benefits everyone in the going to be odor and there is no odor at all,” Linda Allen said. “There is nothing emitted out of the chamber.” Allen said the funeral home has already been cleared by two air quality control agencies and is awaiting a decision from the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District. “A crematory puts out less pollution than a fastfood restaurant,” Allen said. “The unknown is always worse than the known. If you are having phobias about it, come to the meeting and you’ll get answers.” Barbara McKennis, executive director at Cremation Association of North America (CANA), said that out-of-date information has contributed to the perpetuation of myths about crematoriums. According to McKennis, the cremation process is fairly simple and mundane. Each deceased individual is properly identified and authorized for cremation by a licensed mortician. All jewelry and medical accessories are removed before the body is cleaned and placed inside of either a wooden casket or an alternative vessel, typically made of rigid cardboard. The container is placed inside a primary chamber, known as a retort, and incinerated at temperatures between 1,600 and 2,000 degrees. The industrial furnace takes roughly two hours to consume the average human body and produces roughly 5 to 10 pounds of tiny bone fragments which are ground into “cremains.” During incineration, air flow is directed from the cremation chamber to a secondary chamber which further destroys any remaining particulate matter and odors. The body itself does not

community.” The Escondido Downtown Business Association and Escondido Chamber of Commerce have come out in favor of the regulatory mechanism, as well. Yet not everyone came out in support of density transfer. Members of the city’s historical preservation community, and those who live in the historic downtown core, have expressed concern that the historical character of the area could change if things like high-rise condominiums and other modern edifices arise in the area. “I'm greatly concerned that the Density housing program will have a 'spillover' effect in eroding what is not only a gem for those of us who live here, but for all of Escondido," wrote Victoria Cabot, who has lived in the Old Escondido neighborhood since 2001, in an April 5 email exhibited as part of the City Council documents published before the May 1 meeting. “It is one of the many charming aspects that puts our historic town on the map ... I DO believe some type of housing would be beneficial to bring foot produce any smoke. The air flow is cooled as it rises through the chimney stack, reducing any visible emissions to a heat shimmer. “I’ve visited hundreds of crematories and they smell like heated metal,” McKennis said. “We are talking about extremely high heat, not a fireplace or open pyre.” McKennis said silver amalgam dental fillings can produce a small amount mercury into the air which is often a source of controversy across the globe. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

traffic to Grand (Avenue). I simply can't understand why it has to be 'all or nothing.” Beyond historical preservation concerns, the density transfer development plan could also may run into even larger complications, due to a legislative proposal with momentum in Sacramento, SB 50. Also going by the moniker the California More HOMES Act of 2019, the legislation calls for city zoning codes to change as it applies to incentivizing building housing developments within a half-mile to quarter-mile radius of transit centers. The goal of SB 50, according to its proponents, is to blend together tackling the climate change and affordable housing crises all in one swoop. Gov. Gavin Newsom recently signaled support for spirit of the legislation. Councilwoman Olga Diaz, a representative for District 3 also running as a Democratic candidate for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors District 3 seat currently held TURN TO LAND USE ON 15

classified amalgams as a class II medical device and reaffirmed that encapsulated amalgams are a “safe and effective restorative option for patients.” “There are certainly fillings in our teeth that contain mercury and therefore it stands to reason that a cremated body emits mercury in the air,” McKennis said. “But how much are we talking about? Very small amounts or we wouldn’t be able to have mercury in our mouths in the first place.” But cremations are steadily growing in popularity across the country.

Pastor accused of molesting child in Escondido faces more charges in O.C. SANTA ANA — An Orange County pastor pleaded not guilty May 13 to felony charges of molesting seven children ages 5 to 15. John Rodgers McFarland, who has been the head pastor at Orangethorpe United Methodist Church in Fullerton since 2014, was arrested on a warrant May 9 charging him with seven counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor younger than 14 and four counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor 14 to 15 years old. Bail was set at $2 million for McFarland, who faces up to 179 years to life in prison if convicted, prosecutors said. The 56-year-old Fullerton resident’s next scheduled court date is a June 20 pretrial hearing at the West Justice Center in Westminster. McFarland's attorney, Michael J. Holmes, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The pastor is accused of molesting the children between 2003 and 2017, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, which did not release the genders of the alleged victims. Prosecu-

tors also did not say where the alleged molestations occurred, but the Fountain Valley Police Department is the lead agency in the Orange County investigation. McFarland is also facing charges in In San Diego County, where he was arrested and charged in December with molesting a girl younger than 14 between 2012 and 2013. The alleged molestation occurred in Escondido when he was visiting relatives, said Lt. Chris Lick of the Escondido Police Department McFarland is due in court in San Diego June 18 for a pretrial hearing and July 9 for a preliminary hearing, according to Tanya Sierra, a spokeswoman for the D.A.’s office in San Diego County. “We are still determining the outcome of our case in light of the Orange County charges,” she told City News Service. According to an online biography, McFarland grew up in North County, where he was affiliated with San Marcos United Methodist Church.

California experienced a 64.7% cremation rate in 2016, an 8.5% increase from 2012. By 2022, the projected cremation rate for California is 72%, according to a CANA study. “It’s difficult for science to trump emotion in these situations,” McKennis said. “People are choosing cremation but don’t want it anywhere near where they live. (The fear) is based in emotion, but this is a necessary service in a highly regulated industry.” For Desiena, the main issue is air pollution and selecting a more discreet loca-

tion for a crematory. “I have no problem with cremation, but it’s got to be properly sited,” Desiena said. “And that doesn’t mean in a valley bordering residential neighborhoods. I can see they would want to offer full service for their clients, but the city needs to know that it’s not making people happy. Desiena’s online petition began on March 1 and has since gathered 847 signatures. A public meeting has yet to be scheduled but is expected at the end of June, according to Allen.

Report: Camp Pendleton, others fall short on domestic violence response By Samantha Taylor

OCEANSIDE — Law enforcement officials at Camp Pendleton and several military bases around the country are not consistently following requirements when investigating domestic violence incidents, according to a report by the Department of Defense (DoD). The report compiled by the DoD Inspector General’s office analyzed whether law enforcement organizations on military bases were complying with department policy when responding to nonsexual domestic violence incidents involving adult victims. Analysis for the study examined a random sampling of 219 domestic violence incidents and found that military law enforcement organizations did not consistently process crime scenes, conduct thorough

interviews or submit criminal history data to federal databases. The IG’s report determined that violations were the result of law enforcement commanders instructing personnel to implement practices that weren’t consistent with DoD requirements, not having the proper equipment such as cameras to collect and preserve evidence and not performing effective supervision over incident responses. Of the incidents analyzed, 47 of them occurred at Camp Pendleton. According to the report, Camp Pendleton’s operations noncommissioned officer said the violations related to crime scene processing were due to law enforcement personnel not documenting procedures they performed and a shortage in cameras.

The officer added that additional cameras have since been purchased. A domestic violence

investigation unit was also established at Camp Pendleton so that any time an incident is reported, patrol

officers will respond and then notify the domestic violence unit, which will send an investigator to respond, according to the officer. Law enforcement is also required to notify the Family Advocacy Program (FAP) staff immediately upon receiving a domestic violence incident allegation, requiring FAP officials to interview children instead of investigators, according to the officer. But the report reveals that children weren’t being interviewed by FAP or anyone else. “We agree that the practice of relying on FAP to conduct interviews is acceptable because these personnel often have more training and experience interviewing children,” the report states. “However, during our evaluation, we found no evidence that children were interviewed by

FAP.” The Marine Corps also had a 12% noncompliance rate with regard to notifying FAP of domestic violence incidents. According to the Camp Pendleton officer, failures to comply with DoD policies related to FAP were due to patrol officers not documenting FAP notifications they completed, but the domestic violence unit should prevent such noncompliances from happening. “If Military Service law enforcement personnel do not thoroughly investigate and document their response to domestic violence incidents, decision makers, such as commanders and prosecutors, will not have the necessary information to make informed disciplinary or prosecutorial decisions,” the report states. “Further, these deficiencies could hinder criminal investigations, impact law enforcement and national security interests, and expose victims to additional harm.” In one case, NCIS personnel at Camp Pendleton investigated a domestic incident where a subject strangled a victim and threw her to the floor. The incident report was evaluated and determined to contain sufficiently credible information that would allow the subject to be entered into the index — but that never happened. Comment provided from the branch head of the Marine Corps Law Enforcement, Investigations, and Corrections Branch did not respond to six recommendations from the DoD report. Those recommendations include adding subjects who were not properly titled and indexed in databases, to collect and submit the DNA that wasn’t already sent in to the Defense Forensic Science Center, and to make sure practices, equipment and supervisory reviews are adequate to comply with DoD policies. “Specifically, the Branch Head did not state whether he agreed or disagreed with the recommendations, nor did he describe actions the Marine Corps would take in response to the recommendations,” the report states. “As a result, we consider all of the recommendations to the Navy and Marine Corps unresolved and we request additional comments from the Navy and the Marine Corps.” The DoD requests additional comments from the Navy and Marine Corps to state whether those branches agree or disagree with the recommendations, and to describe specific actions they will take to resolve those recommendations. The Department of Defense (DoD) defines domestic violence as “an offense that involves the use, attempted use, or threatened use of force or violence against a person, or a violation of a lawful order issued for the protection” of both current and former spouses or domestic partners.

World War II vets and Cypress Court residents take Honor Flights to D.C. ESCONDIDO — On May 5, Tom Foreman and Bob Holmes had a ceremonious welcome home from the trip of a lifetime. Courtesy of Honor Flight San Diego, the two World War II veterans were chosen to take an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at the memorials dedicated to their sacrifice and service. The two men are both residents of Cypress Court senior living community, where a significant contingent of the residents are veterans. The staff and community makes a point to honor them. “We choose a veteran of the month every month in our newsletter where they can share their story with our community about their service time in the military,” Catherine Babinski, Sales Director, said. “And residents can utilize the Veteran’s Aid and Attendance benefits as a help toward their rent if they qualify for

the program.” Foreman, 97, and Holmes, 95, were part of a group of more than 180 veterans chosen for one of Honor Flight’s twice yearly trips. “I just love these guys, they are so exciting, and I feel so blessed to know them,” Saundra Cima, Honor Flight San Diego’s director, said. For the trips, each veteran is paired with a guardian. For some it is a family member, others are paired with a volunteer. The guardian accompanies the veteran throughout the trip, providing support and helping them get around with a wheelchair. When Foreman, whose grandson accompanied him on the Honor Flight, first heard he was chosen, he was slightly reluctant. “I was a little old, I thought maybe I shouldn’t go,” the Purple Heart honoree said. “But it was very interesting and they took very good care of me. I saw things I never thought I’d see. It was well

worth going and I really enjoyed the trip.” The sightseeing wasn’t just about visiting the memorials. “They had traffic control, and blocked traffic and we drove right through. We were able to see so many things because we could move around so fast,” Foreman said. “We saw the Washington Monument, the Reflecting Pool and Jeffer-

son’s Tomb … we were able to see a lot of things the average tourist wouldn’t see, like a Naval museum that dates back to the 1700s that they don’t open to the public. I was able to explain to my grandson about the guns and the different things that I saw and did. It was really interesting.” Holmes, who was a pilot in World War II, was able to

attend with his son as his guardian. “Bob patrolled the Pacific for ships and submarines,” Cima said. “He says he spent a lot of time looking at water, and was even unexpectedly shot at while doing so, so Bob calls himself lucky. He was an integral part in the safety of our servicemen and women in World War II.” Honor Flight is a 100%

volunteer organization, that is currently trying to raise money for the not yet fully funded October trip. “One hundred percent of the money we raise goes to funding our trip. It is 100% free of charge for our veterans,” Cima said. Currently World War II and Korean War veterans are being taken on the trips, as well as the most infirmed veterans. “Our mission is to continue to fly veterans from the Vietnam War and beyond.” The next Honor Flight is scheduled for Oct. 4 to Oct. 6.

Smart home tech helps older Americans age in place May is Older Americans Month and this year’s theme of connecting, creating and contributing is made easier with smart home technology that helps our aging population connect with family and friends wherever they are in the world, create a safe and healthy home environment, and continue contributing their invaluable knowledge and life experiences in their community. Smart home technology also makes it easier to “age in place,” which is important considering 90% of adults age 65 and older say they prefer growing older in their current home rather than uprooting and moving to an assisted-living facility. Not only does technology empower seniors to live independently longer, it is often a less expensive option than moving. And it can be less intimidating than people think. Technology is made “smart” by connecting devices to a high-speed Internet connection. Through a national smart home tour of

“Connected Independence” homes that had its origins in San Diego, Cox Communications has been demonstrating to communities across the country how smart-home technology gives seniors the ability to live independently at home, while providing adult children and caretakers peace of mind that their loved one is safe. Technology can also combat the feelings of isolation common in older adults, as it’s easier to connect with friends, family and caregivers without leaving the home. A connected home allows seniors to get the things they need in their daily routine while maintaining the quality of life at home. Here are some technology highlights from Cox’s “Connected Independence” smart home tour: Telehealth allows patients to have live, personal interaction with their doctors via video conferencing while at home.

confessed in an online manifesto he posted prior to the synagogue shooting. Following his initial appearance Tuesday afternoon, he's slated to return to court May 28 for a preliminary hearing. He remains held without bail. He was charged May 9 with 109 federal hate crimes: — 54 counts of obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs using a dangerous weapon, resulting in death, bodily injury and attempts to kill; — 54 counts of hate crimes stemming from the synagogue shooting in violation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate

MAY 17, 2019

Crimes Prevention Act; and — one count of damage to religious property by use of fire. Each of the 54 hate crime and obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs counts apply to a person who was inside the synagogue during the shooting, Brewer said. Among those people, 12 of the congregants present were children, he said. Earnest, a Cal State San Marcos nursing student, is also charged in state court with murder, attempted murder and arson. His next court hearing in the state's case is a readiness conference set for May 30. An off-duty Border Patrol agent working as a security guard was inside

the temple when the shooting began, and he opened fire as the suspect fled, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said. The agent did not strike Earnest, but did hit the suspect's car, authorities said. Police said Earnest called 911 at around 11:30 a.m. and said he had been involved in the shooting and was armed. According to the federal complaint, Earnest told a dispatcher, “I just shot up a synagogue. I'm just trying to defend my nation from the Jewish people ... They're destroying our people ... I opened fire at a synagogue. I think I killed some people.” He allegedly added that he shot up the synagogue “because the Jewish people are

destroying the white race.” In the “open letter” that authorities say Earnest posted online shortly before the shooting, the author espouses flagrant anti-Semitic sentiments and a need to protect the “European race.” He wrote that he spent four weeks planning the attack, citing his “disgust” for Jews and a desire to kill them, and expressed admiration for the Australian white nationalist who attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March, killing 50 people. The writer also claims responsibility for the March 24 fire set at the Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque, also known as Islamic Center of Escondido. The 3:15 a.m. fire was quickly extinguished by people inside the mosque. Graffiti left on the building made reference to the mosques attacks in Christchurch. Surveillance footage allegedly captured a suspect arriving at the mosque in the same type of vehicle in which Earnest was captured on the day of the synagogue shooting.

his week Soul on Fire is visiting the Deer Park Monastery in Escondido. Deer Park is a tremendous spiritual gift given to North County from the Vietnamese Buddhist Zen Master Monk, Thich Nhat Hahn. This 400-acre sanctuary is nestled in the bouldered hillside of Escondido where majestic oaks and secluded meadows cause one to remember the importance of just being. It is one of the thousands of such mindfulness practice centers that are a part of a larger community of “Sanghas” worldwide. Open to the public on specific Sundays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., a sangha is a monastic community of monks and nuns who practice Buddist traditions, particularly mindfulness. Also known as the "Father of Mindfulness," Hahn was exiled from his homeland after speaking out in America about the Vietnam war. Thay (teacher) as Hahn is affectionately known, is said to be the pioneer in bringing Buddhism to the West. When nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King, Jr. in the '60s, he was dubbed the World's Apostle of Peace and Nonviolence. He was a teacher of Comparative Religion at Princeton University and

of Buddhism at Columbia University. His message of peace, brotherhood, and mindfulness has a huge global following. With mindfulness, we can be more open and present with ourselves and others, while becoming present to the wonders of being alive in every moment of our lives. Spending a day at Deer Park, participants can get in touch with their inner self. This level of thinking can transform every area of life by having the benefits radiate beyond oneself to affect others and the whole, larger world. When you drive in off the winding hillside road, you wonder if you are in the right place as the GPS gets a little spotty. But soon enough you will start to see the signs, such as "Be Zen-Drive 10" and "I Have Arrived" and finally "Breathe You Are Alive" that leads to the parking area. The day starts with a Mindful Walking Meditation. It's a totally different world now and it would be best to surrender to it. The environment out there just makes you slow down. Relax into a lovely cup of tea while reading the introduction to the practice of mindfulness or listen to the podcast that is offered on the website, then ditch your cell phone as suggested. The Dharma talk on the Five Mindfulness Trainings is held in the meditation hall and includes a ceremony and participation on a mat, with bowing and chanting. A Mindful Lunch is provided in the dining hall. You line up in silence and help yourself buffet style, sit, wait for the prayer by one of the monks, then eat in silence for about 20 minutes. It is also suggested to stay seated and not get up during the meal. This causes one to be more meditative and in the present moment. It made me think about all the times I am NOT thinking about eating when I'm eating. Most of the time I am unaware of what I am even eating, or how much. Slowing down, completely present, and being reverent to the food that is about to nourish the body truly is a spiritual practice. This mindfulness thing is no joke. It's doing all the things we do in everyday life; walking, eating, breathing ... but doing them with the recognition of the presence of God. It is a constant practice to keep your mind out of autopilot mode. When our attention is absorbed in our wandering minds, we are not really present in our own lives. We recommend taking a day to refocus and recharge at Deer Park Monastery. The effects of the day can last a lifetime.

time. That variety makes for some fabulous people watching and eaves dropping on the conversations that go along with that variety. I should add that this all happens in a huge indoor bar and two fun outdoor patios. There is also a dining room, but the fun action seemed to be in the bar and outdoors. Norte fits around 250 inside and 100 on the patios and it’s always bustling. Every single person that has ever mentioned Norte to me has included the word margarita in the

first sentence. That or a cold Mexican beer are the obvious drink choices. I kept hearing “skinny margarita� so that’s what we went with. So I had to learn more about this movement toward the skinny margarita. From what I’ve gathered, it does not stray too far from to a properly made, classic margarita, with just going a bit lighter on the triple sec and sweetener or using more natural sweeteners instead of the bottled syrupy variety. Regular margaritas pack a wallop of calories, so


y day drinking adventures are few and far between these days but when they do happen, it sure is nice to have a place like Norte in Carlsbad as an option. A recent Saturday afternoon visit found a restaurant packed with folks with the same idea, which made for a very festive couple of hours hanging on one of their fun patios with some like-minded people. Margaritas (more on those later) in the daytime tend to encourage socialization and there was plenty of that going on, which is how it should be, right? One of the first things I noticed about Norte was the wide variety of patrons. Senior citizens, military, hipsters, power moms, regulars, couples, families and several of what appeared to be girls night out groups doing their thing in the day-


pring wine and food events for 2019 have sprung! I‘ve never seen anything like it in my 14 years as a wine and food writer. The consuming public has finally figured it out. Between the wine tasting, the multi-course special dinners or the vast amount of wine and cuisine offered at special wine trade events, the admission charged is a great bargain when you break it down. And you can’t place a price on the element of fun and friendship. The latest big wine show was last month’s seventh annual VinDiego masterminded by Dave Fraschetti, who gave his many guests a new venue, downtown San Diego’s Waterfront Park. Just to be by the bay with this unforgettable party was enough to sell it out. Wines from all over California descended on the venue under beautiful clear skies. Several restaurants were invited to offer food samples that identified their menus. Even gourmet market Gelson’s La Costa location, with manager Kasen Smith, pitched in with a wide variety of cheeses and cheese experts on hand to guide samplers. I wanted to call out some special wines that I hope to see again soon. Carol Shelton had her award winning Zinfandels from Sonoma, namely Wild Thing, which has been applauded by an array of publications and judges these days. Keith Rolle has been on a roll, taking his Gianni Buonomo winery in San Diego’s Ocean Beach district to new heights. He was awarded Best Winery in San Diego and his Charbono Red was dubbed Double Gold in San Francisco. Opolo, a mountain winery in

Keep up with the latest news at VinDiego. com. Justin Winery presents their latest at Vittorio’s Vittorio’s in Carmel Valley had overflow diners for its Justin Winery wine and dine experience. The Paso Robles winner with famous red blends like Justification ($60) and favorite Isosceles ($76) show you why Justin is at the top of its game with great wines. Sinia Shaw lit up the room when she told the story of Justin Baldwin, who after visiting the finest chateaus in Bordeaux, created a California winery in 1981 that featured red blends that rivaled the originals. Justin wines have never looked back. Take a look at Il Fornaio honors Sicilian food and wine Visit Il Fornaio now through May 19 as the Italian restaurant group

celebrates food and wine Sicilian style, during their monthly Festa Regionale. Rico Cassoni and I dined at the Del Mar location when Manager Gianluca Mazzolani hosted menu delicacies that included Analetti al Forno, an inspiring eggplant and pasta dish (eggplant is called melanzane in Sicily). Analetti pasta, a small circled pasta, was surrounded by baked tomato sauce in a half-globe eggplant, topped with Sicilian Pecorino cheese. Mazzolani revealed that “the eggplant came from the Middle East by way of Arab conquerors who inhabited the island centuries ago. They are grown above ground like a tomato plant and are now considered to be a staple food for Sicilian style restaurants.� The recommended wine was a Nero d’Avola, the 2016 Regaleali ($42 bottle). Complex and supple, it has ripe berry flavors and silky tannins. It made a perfect companion for this dish. The evening would not have been complete without the Spumoni Gelato with cherries, chocolate chips and pistachios for the “Dolce� dessert.

ect, so keeping costs to a minimum is a priority, Ellis said. “They’ll really save a lot of money,” Fehlhaber said. “That would be in the video production industry, marketing agencies and gaming companies will have the biggest benefit from our space.” The networking opportunities, Fehlhaber added, are another benefit, especially for those companies looking to contract the work. She said in the corporate world, notably in Carlsbad, there is high demand for spaces to produce commercials or other forms of media. With an already sizable corporate market, Fehlhaber said The Film Hub is also targeting building the film industry in the area. “And really it’s to try and get productions to come down here and package it up nicely so they can get the benefits and discounts of working with the city for permits,” she explained. “A big part of co-working is community and that’s what we really want to build. We’re there to help and inspire each other. That’s the atmosphere we want.”

through his work. “He’s improved so much over the course of the year and his transformation,” Olden said. One inspiration for Olivares came from an assignment by Olden. Once per year, she has her students select a photographer to study, which she dubs, “Photographer as mentors.” Olivares landed on Manuel Álvarez Bravo, a Mexican photographer who is credited as having been one of the most important and influential Latin American artists in the 20th century. Some of Bravo’s work includes street life and culture, Olden said, which is the same avenue Olivares pursued with his collection. “Jonathan was drawn to his work and drew inspiration from his work for his own series,” Olden added. “It was drawing inspiration from them, but then making their own story and incorporating their own lives.”

Olden. As a result, the Vista High senior has blossomed and become a force in his own right. “With a picture, people think you just take a picture,” Olivares said. “But there is a lot more to a picture. One person can see an image, but there is so more depth that you can capture. All the background that goes into a photograph.” Olivares said what draws him to photography is the depth one can capture with a single image. It delivers background, expression and interpretation on a different scale than video or writing. Olden, in her eighth year as the photography teacher at Vista High, said when Olivares first came to her class last year he was shy and reserved. He often struggled to deliver presentations, she said and adding the language barrier was a challenge. But as time wore on, Olivares has become more comfortable and confident


VISTA — What started as a hobby has now become a passion coupled with several prestigious awards. Vista High School senior Jonathan Olivares is one of 16 high school students to be recognized by the Alliance for Young Artist and Writers for his photography portfolio titled “Mi Vida Mexico.” With the recognition, he also receives a $10,000 scholarship and a trip to Carnegie Hall in New York City on June 6. By earning a national gold portfolio, Olivares also received the Maurice “Robbie” Robinson Vision Award from Scholastic, which is given to one student each year. His collection captures Mexican culture through black and white photos, a preferred style for Olivares. Submissions for the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers award numbered more than 340,000. Also, three of his photos will be part of a national exhibit touring the country for the next year. “I was scared and excited at the same time,” Olivares said through a translator upon hearing the news. “I’ve never had an experience like this, with a prestigious award and scholarship. There are all these people watching me. I’ve never liked putting myself out there too much. People are going to look at me and think that I’m better than everyone.” Olivares was born and raised in Tijuana, but

and preschool, and was purchased as an Opportunity Zone project. The Lowens are in the midst of a major renovation of the building to include, potentially two, or several, smaller restaurants, a rooftop bar and additional training space for the child care business. But the plaza, she said, can act as a centerpiece to the area with her building acting as a training center to support other potential vendors and businesses in the plaza. Additionally, the plan calls for reorganizing the layout of the space to add street parking, landscaping and other amenities and se-

curity. “Because it’s terraced, you could put a band,” Lowen said. “By creating a regional destination, what you could do is also create an Opportunity Business Zone. She added that they could create something where startups can be incubated and entrepreneurs can be sustained and scaled up. Cost is also a consideration the two sides discussed, with the city project coming in at about $300,000, while Lowen plan would be around $1 million. Lowen said the area is an Opportunity Zone, thus is eligible for grants and tax benefits through the federal government, which would offset some of the cost from the city. Also, large grants and

other tax credits could be in play, she said, noting workforce and farmers market grants at about $400,000 each. “The poorest neighborhoods in our entire country have been selected to receive significant investment,” Lowen said. “You can defer your capital gains tax and invest it in an Opportunity Zone to renovate a building and open a business.” Numerous residents and neighboring businesses are in support of the Lowen proposal, or at least for the council to consider the item. Many spoke in front of the council and with the Lowens expressing support; although others are more cautious of the plan. However, Green preferred the city’s option with a turf area and potentially vendors and a stage. He said if the city cannot make its own option work, there is little chance the Lowen proposal would be prosperous. He said holding off on the basis of a good idea is not a good approach for the council. “I feel like the work has been done on options A, B and C,” Green said. “That we look at the Vista Town Square Public Market as a long-term option, when we can figure out who are grant writers (are), how are we getting the money and what’s the total cost.”

Vehicle backfiring prompts school lockdown in Carlsbad CARLSBAD — A report of possible gunshots May 15 near a Carlsbad primary school — sounds later determined to have likely been a backfiring vehicle — prompted a roughly hourlong lockdown at the campus while authorities

investigated. Someone reported hearing sounds similar to gunfire in the area of Hope Elementary School shortly after 9 a.m., according to police. Investigators found no evidence of gunfire in the

neighborhood, according to police Lt. Steve Thomas. By 10:15 a.m., the heightened security precautions at the campus were lifted, principal Richard Tubbs said.


very much on the facts of each case,’ and thus police officers are entitled to qualified immunity unless existing precedent ‘squarely governs’ the specific facts at issue,” the Supreme Court ruled in Kisela v. Hughes. After doing its own research, the appeals court concluded it could not find such a case and that the ones Emmons cited did not fit that bill either. And thus, the officers at the scene in 2013 were “entitled to qualified immunity,” the court ruled. Trenton Lamere, an attorney for the Singleton Law Firm — which represented Emmons in the case — said he believes the ruling points to broader issues inherent in what he called the “legal fiction” of the qualified immunity doctrine itself. “Despite there being several prior cases in which similar conduct was found to be unconstitutional, the Ninth Circuit (following recent Supreme Court guidance) concluded ... that tackling an unarmed, non-threatening elderly man would violate the Fourth Amendment,” Lamere wrote via email. “These officers are individually immune from even having to defend against this lawsuit. And to make matters worse, the Ninth Circuit (again following Supreme Court guidance) refused even to analyze whether the conduct alleged in this case would be a violation of the Fourth Amendment.” Just two weeks before the appeals court published its ruling, a consortium of cross-ideological groups and legal scholars petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to

reconsider the qualified immunity doctrine. Lamere said his firm next intends to bring a new federal civil lawsuit on the grounds that the Escondido Police Department committed a constitutional violation under the legal precedent set forth in the case Monell v. Department of Social Services of New York. Monell is a 1978 U.S. Supreme Court decision that said that municipalities can be held liable for conduct which results in constitutional violations, as well as decisions to “ratify or approve unconstitutional conduct after the fact,” Lamere explained. Emmons alleged a Monell violation in his initial 2014 U.S. District Court complaint, but the court issued a summary judgment ruling that only grappled with the qualified immunity doctrine, dismissing the case on those grounds alone. City of Escondido attorney Michael McGuinness did not respond to a request for comment.


Looking at the stack of case law on the books, the court ruled in favor of the Escondido Police Department. Pointing to the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court Kisela v. Hughes, the 9th Circuit ruled that Emmons would have had to find an appellate court case with a nearly mirror image fact pattern in which the plaintiff won on similar grounds to pass legal muster. “Use of excessive force is an area of the law ‘in which the result depends

offee in a tea bag. The ultimate commuter backpack. Anti-UV rays hats. Sub-sized fans. Multi-tasking clothing. These are some of the newest products designed to make travels tastier, safer and a whole lot easier.

Steeped Coffee

The idea is so basic, I wonder why someone hasn’t come up with this before now. But there was more to it than just putting coffee grounds into a tea bag to create single-cups coffee. After all, there’s that gadget (starts with a K) that dispenses one cup at a time, but it requires a machine and creates a lot of waste from all those pods. Entrepreneur and coffee-lover Josh Wilbur wanted more — or less. He created Steeped Bags — single-serving, “ethically sourced” specialty coffee that comes in a mesh bag made of plant-based, renewable and compostable materials. And “oxygen is replaced with nitrogen (in the sealing process), so the coffee stays fresh as if it was ground moments ago.” Bags come in light, medium, dark, French roast and decaf.



by Republican Kristin Gaspar, said at the meeting that she believes that it’s possible that the bill could — in effect — nullify the Density Transfer Program. “All this great talking and doing and stuff, we might just throw it out the window if SB 50 passes and we can’t protect anything that we have had local control over,” Diaz said. “People have concerns here today about what we’re doing with density transfer, but what they should really be concerned about is losing local control over what we might eventually adopt.” At the first candidate forum for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors District 3 seat, Diaz further explained that the Escondido City Council agrees with the League of California Cities — an organization which has come out against SB 50 — and may pass an official resolution against the proposal. The league has published a letter written to California Legislature leadership calling for a killing of the bill.

Urban 21 Backpack

My millennial nephew, Daniel, calls this the Swiss Army knife of backpacks — which means that this bag has multiple functions and it may take a while to figure out all of them. But the time is worth it. The Urban 21 Commuter Backpack from KeySmart is an engineering marvel that translates into great design and function. Made of water-resistant, ripstop fabric, its multiple pockets and RFID-blocking compartments mean that your computer, tablet, wallet, charge cards, charger cords, earphones, notebooks and pens (remember them?) are secure. Also places for a pocket organizer, water bottle, portable charger and locator tile. The generously padded shoulder straps make for comfort regardless of load. Starts $239.

“The League of California Cities objects to allowing developers of certain types of housing projects to override locally developed and adopted height limitations, housing densities, parking requirements, and limit design review standards,” reads a May 8 letter by the organization. “SB 50 would greatly

undermine locally adopted General Plans, Housing Elements. By allowing developers to override state approved housing plans, SB 50 seriously calls to question the need for cities to develop these community based plans and the justification for spending millions of state and local funds on the planning process.”

McNamara, though, said the City Council will cross that bridge when it gets there for SB 50. “I’m not sure it’s an efficient use of time to deal in hypotheticals,” said McNamara. “I mean, when SB 50 passes with a final version, then clearly we’ll deal with it and see what the impact is.”

We started with some classic chips and guacamole, which is served with four scoops of guac and melted Monterrey Jack cheese. The true test of a Mexican joint for me these days is their soup and the Chicken and Rice with cilantro, onions and avocado passed the test with flying colors. I’ve been told that their Chicken Tortilla is the standout so I’m saving that for next visit. For entrees we went with the Milanesa and the Pescado Ranchero and both did the trick and were perfect accompaniments to our cocktails. Milanesa is the South CROP American and later Mexican version of the .93 Italian.93 dish where different types of pounded meat are 4.17and served with breaded 4.28representative of toppings the region. Think of a variation of veal or chicken Parmesan or Austrian Wiener Schnitzel. At Norte it’s chicken and comes with a choice of steak fries or rice and beans and a Mexican cabbage salad, which was the best variety of that staple that I’ve had in North County. Whatever it was lightly dressed with was really nice and the olives were a touch that took it to a higher level than most of these salads that can be somewhat of an afterthought. It was a huge

portion and half the Milanesa made it into a sandwich later on with some melted cheese on top. We also ordered the Pescado Ranchero that was grilled Mahi-Mahi topped with a mildly seasoned ranchero sauce with green chilies, tomatoes and onions along with rice, beans and choice of tortillas. We went with flour and promptly made some nice fish burritos that included some of that cabbage salad. It should be noted that all the fish dishes at Norte are made with Mahi-Mahi also known as Dorado. That’s a nice touch as it’s a firm, moist white fish that is very versatile. Fidel's has been around over 40 years and was founded by Fidel and Martha Montanez who opened their first restaurant in Solana Beach in 1960. Fidel's Norte in Carlsbad opened in 1976, and is now run by Richard Montanez, son of the original owners and the restaurant's general manager. It has definitely become a core part of the Carlsbad Village experience and a great place to lift your spirits and enjoy some solid Mexican food and drinks.

Active duty in Navy — and now Palomar valedictorian SAN MARCOS — As a boy growing up in the Dominican Republic, Jose Miguel Chevalier knew a plastic surgeon. He recalls how the doctor provided reconstructive surgery for women who had undergone mastectomies during breast cancer treatment. He knew when he came to the U.S. in 2007 that he wanted to follow suit. And so, after finishing high school, he enlisted with

Chevalier the Navy to help fund what he knew would be a costly medical education. In 2016, Chevalier walked into Palomar College’s Camp Pendleton Center to enroll in his first college classes. Last year, he finished his Associate of Science in General Studies: Emphasis in Science and Mathematics at Palomar. May 24, he will walk across the stage to receive his degree as the Class of 2019 Valedictorian. “As I move on to more complex subjects, the foundation I’ve received at Palomar is helping me push through and move into the future,” said Chevalier. “I feel confident, with the

knowledge that I’ve received here at Palomar.” In the Navy, Chevalier currently serves as a Hospital Corpsman, Second Class and manages a dental clinic at the Las Pulgas Camp on base, providing preventive care to Marines who are about to deploy. He said he plans to leave the service in April 2020 to transfer and pursue his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering— hopefully at UCLA, he added. As an active-duty service member, Chevalier said he quickly realized the value of a college center located at Camp Pendleton. “That center is very convenient for service members like myself. It’s tough to get out of work to drive 45 minutes out here” to San Marcos, he said. “Every time I speak to fellow service members about school, I personally take them down to the education center at Camp Pendleton, and introduce them to the staff there. They’re able to register, enroll, and get financial assistance. “It’s super-important for service members of all kinds to get an education, so they have options when they get out, and can do something they love,” he said. As he prepares to stand as one of Palomar’s top-ranking graduates later this month, he reflected on his time at Palomar: “I wouldn’t have made the rank of E-5 without my Associate’s,” said Chevalier. “I never thought I would see myself in this position (as valedictorian). This honor has given me the confidence to understand I can accomplish anything I can set my mind to.”

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Untangling personal problems might take more time than the impatient Lamb expected. But it’s important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of support. Things should turn around before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of finding potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that “ideal” situation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moonbeams.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Don’t be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isn’t always obvious on the surface. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A friend or family member’s request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all the facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your original concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it — won’t you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully. You earned it. BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of beauty in your personal life extends to your efforts to protect and preserve the natural world around you. © 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

DEAR DOCTOR: What is the link between smoking and bladder cancer? My urologist says smoking is one of the main causes, but until I got diagnosed with bladder cancer earlier this year, I had never heard about that connection.

Keep Calm, Summer is On! Avoiding Heat Related Risks When You’re Getting Older Ronald Perez, MD

Living in Phoenix, AZ I remember long summers where it was so hot that even staying indoors caused unexplained fatigue and mild headaches. It wasn’t uncommon to see news stories about EMS services rescuing someone due to heat related illnesses like heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Thankfully, these are highly preventable and I’ll be giving you some practical tips to have a safe summer and avoid being on the news. At least for heat related reasons! Stay active BUT don’t stay in direct sunlight too long. Seniors tend to have a diminished ability to regulate body temperature, recognize thirst and conserve body water. So if you’re getting up there in age, you too will have an increased risk of dehydration. Be cognizant of your fluid intake. While typically you should be having at least 8 glasses a day, drinking 8-12 glasses may not be unreasonable depending on how much time you’re spending in the sun and how high the thermometer reading is that day. Wear loose, breathable and light-colored clothing. Remember those elementary school science experiments, or maybe those of your kids or grandkids - you may recall that light colors absorb less heat than dark ones. Cover your face! Bring out a visor, baseball cap, or that hat you bought for the first day at the horse races 5 years ago then never wore again. Wear sunglasses and apply sunscreen. Don’t forget to reapply every two hours.. Too much sun exposure can damage the eyes and skin, acutely and long term. Exercise in water. Consider incorporating exercise while you in are the swimming pool. This is actually a low-impact form of exercise called, Aquatics. Water provides natural resistance, a cooling effect and buoyancy. Aquatics promotes improved mobility and strength while preserving good joint integrity and taking some pressure off your bones and muscles. You can even practice aquatic exercise if you do not know how to swim. You may want to check your local health facilities/senior centers to verify if they offer formal classes. The Tri-City Wellness & Fitness Center in Carlsbad offers a variety of different aquatics classes in a

Dr. Eve Glazier

at any time - consider forming a buddy system where you check on your neighbor and they check on you. Please seek medical assistance if you experience signs or symptoms of heat related illness or witness someone who is. Remember -hydrate, rest and stay in a cool place are your first line of defense against heat related emergencies. Call your physician or dial 911 if your symptoms are serious or persist despite early intervention. Have fun, be well and stay cool! Ronald Perez, MD

warm water salt pool which are available throughout the week at various times, beginning as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 6 p.m. The center also offers tours, a free 3-day pass for locals, and a senior rate for registering members. You can find out more about the Tri-City Wellness & Fitness Center by calling 760.884.4800. Be aware of the signs and symptoms of heat related illness. Depending on your health status, heat related illness can set in sooner in people with certain chronic illnesses. Speak with your physician regarding any daily medications you take which might affect your ability to regulate body temperature or fluid balance. Being aware of your body and what it needs will help keep you safe this summer. Symptoms of heat related illnesses include: • nausea/vomiting • cramping • fatigue • headache • dizziness • weakness • confusion • hallucinations • loss of consciousness Phone a friend. Lastly, it’s a good idea for seniors to make a friend or relative aware of your activities and ask them to check on you periodically. Accidents can happen

DEAR READER: Your urologist is correct — decades of studies have shown that smoking cigarettes is the greatest single risk factor for developing bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is the fourth-most-common cancer in men, and it is less common in women. Of the 80,470 new cases of bladder cancer predicted for 2019, threefourths will occur in men. The average age for diagnosis is 73, and the disease is less often seen in Latinos and African Americans. Although earlier research suggested that smoking doubled or tripled an individual's risk, the most recent data indicate that cigarette smokers face four times the risk of developing bladder cancer than do non-smokers. A study conducted in 2011 connected cigarette smoking to half of all cases of bladder cancer that arose in both women and men. To understand this connection to cigarette smoking, we should first talk a bit about bladder function and anatomy. The bladder is a hollow and flexible organ that is part of the urinary tract, which is the body's system for getting rid of waste and excess fluids. Each day the kidneys in adults filter up to 150 quarts of blood, which produces between 1 and 2 quarts of urine. In

addition to water, salt and nitrogen products like urea, urine contains numerous additional waste products and impurities that the kidneys have stripped from the blood. The urine then moves from the kidneys to the bladder via a pair of tubes known as ureters. When the bladder begins to reach its capacity of 1.5 to 2 cups of urine, the brain receives signals that we recognize as the familiar urge to urinate. Urine exits the body via a duct known as the urethra. Among the impurities filtered out of the blood by the kidneys are the thousands of byproducts, many of them toxic, contained in cigarette smoke. These include arylamines, which are known to be potent bladder carcinogens. And even as the number of smokers in the United States has dropped, cases of bladder cancer among smokers have increased. This has led researchers to draw a connection to changes in the array of chemicals used in the manufacturing of cigarettes. When it comes to the chemical byproducts of smoking, they do their damage at least twice. The first time is in the respiratory system, particularly in the lungs. The second time is in the urinary tract, where they move from the kidneys to the bladder, where they are held in solution for hours at a time. For people who have quit smoking, there's both good and bad news. Smoking cessation will reduce your bladder cancer risk. But the data shows that former smokers still have double the incidence of bladder cancer of nonsmokers. Unfortunately, exposure to secondhand smoke has been linked to increased risk as well. We have had a number of questions about bladder cancer and will continue the topic, including symptoms, treatment and outlook, in an upcoming column.
