Recent shark attack, sightings: Should they be a cause for alarm? By Adam Sullivan

REGION — As swimmers, surfers and beach enthusiasts flock to our local shores, so do the sharks. News outlets and social media platforms have been filled with sightings, spottings, close calls and even an attack in recent months, begging the question: Why? Are there more sharks than usual, or are we just better at noticing them? And if there is a population surge, then why? A shark bit a Vista woman April 29 at San Onofre – sending her to a hospital in critical condition. The very next day, eight more sharks were spotted at Capistrano Beach. Oceanside lifeguard officials closed down the city’s beaches north of the pier and harbor following a shark sighting three weeks ago. And on May 10, swimmers and paddle boarders in Dana Point were fortunate to have an Orange County Sherriff’s Department helicopter overhead, because

SAN MARCOS – A private university against the foothills of northeast San Marcos has completed a major expansion. The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, which specializes in health and rehabilitative sciences education, recently unveiled its new Center for Innovative Clinical Practice. The 7,000-square-foot teaching laboratory accommodates a wide range of physical therapy and occupational therapy classes in a hands-on learning environment, according to a news release. School officials said the new center is one of the first of its kind to have a dedicated simulation training center and equipment tailored to physical and occupational therapy. “The Center ... positions the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences as an innovator in rehabilitation education and a leader in clinical practice,” said Susan Saxton, senior vice president of innovation and emerging strategies for USAHS. “Looking forward, our

students will transform the rehabilitative space, where they will be more than a clinician, but a clinical leader. We are proud to be blazing a new trail in using simulation in rehabilitative education.” The new facility includes a 16-bed patient ward, a dedicated area for Occupational Therapy education, two patient assessment rooms which provide acute care and clinical scenarios, a complex simulation room, a 25-seat observation and debriefing room, and an activities-of-daily living lab with a kitchen, bedroom, dining, closet, bathroom and living area. USAHS, which was founded in 1979, expanded to San Diego in 2007 before moving into the 76,000-square-foot, three-building corporate center in San Marcos near the corner of Twin Oaks Valley and Borden roads in 2009. The school offers degrees in physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, education and health science, as well as continuing education programs.

they spotted 15 great white sharks only yards away from the group. We are well over the statistical average of shark sightings and attacks, so what gives? Experts have hypotheses that could explain the surge in shark popula-

tion. One theory posits that, because great whites have been a protected species for years, their population is growing. Another theory is that, like humans, sharks prefer shallow “hot spots” because that’s where the easy meals come from.

Seals and sea lions — breakfast and lunch, to a shark — have been protected as well, so their populations have been similarly thriving. Die-hard surfers are TURN TO SHARKS ON 22

Beware: There are rattlesnakes among us By Adam Sullivan

REGION — Now that warm weather’s upon us, everyone’s hiking more and more. But watch your step, because you’re not the only one breaking out of a winter rut. Rattlesnakes are, too. Each spring, North County sees an increase in rattlesnake near-misses, close calls and bites. Identifying them seems simple — their eponymous noise can only come from a snake, or a baby — but it’s not a guarantee. Sometimes, the snake doesn’t rattle at all. Think of it as the polar opposite of a kitten’s purr. Bo Slyapich holds the title of “Rattlesnake Wrangler.” In addition to home and community relocations, he also clears out fields and zones for construction crews and Hollywood productions. Slyapich explained that the unseasonal weather Southern California has been experiencing will affect the frequency, and activity, of the snakes. “Usually with the rain it’s the following year, or the end of the season,” he said. Conversely, the drought we’ve experienced in years prior has affected the population as well. “In the last four years the females have had low numbers,” Slyapich said. “They haven’t been healthy.” According to Slyapich, the proliferation of rattlesnakes is all a part of a healthy, working ecosystem. “More growth means

Rattlesnakes are not creatures to mess with. When hiking, riding bikes, and working in the yard, wear high-booted work shoes. Also, watch your pets. Don’t let them get near a snake. If they find one, call them away from it. Veterinarians have a vaccine which delays the effects on dogs bitten by a rattlesnake. It is a multi-part vaccine, so do it soon. They also have snake-bite antidote. Stock photo

more seeds, means more rodents, means fat rattlers,” he said. “Mom can have 20plus kids in late fall, around October or early November. Then they go in hibernation.” Slyapich refered to the early seasonal surge as a “bumper crop.” “We’ll see a bumper crop early,” he said. “The babies are smaller, so they warm up first, and that means they come out first.” Southern California residents should know that snake encounters don’t just happen out on the trails. Homeowners tend to be perplexed when the snakes wind up leaving their dens and infiltrate the suburbs.

Slyapich has received several calls where the snake in question has decided to wriggle indoors. “People have custom doors or people open their doors for the sea breeze,” he said. Slyapich insisted that there’s a logic to finding a snake in the cupboard: “The thing is, we have water,” he said. “Rodents follow the water, and the snakes follow the grocery store.” Put simply: where there’s snake food, there are snakes. Tom Derr, who owns and operates a local snake rescue, cautioned that you can even find snakes down to the shore. Once again, the weather is to blame.

“You have to be careful,” he said. “Especially after a heavy rain. A lot of the gullies will dump, and if you get a flash flood, it will actually push rattlesnakes out of wherever they are, and take them right out to the beach.” Rattlesnakes are one of the most feared species of one of the most feared creatures in the entire animal kingdom. Not surprisingly, one of the snakes’ biggest predators is man. And we can be cruel. One of the methods for rattlesnake prevention and/or disposal is called a “rattlesnake roundup.” These roundups are fairs that happen mostly in Texas and the south. There are funnel cake stands and beer gardens, and everything you’d expect at a town fair, and then there are snakes. Hundreds of them. Ostensibly, visitors bring in snakes they’ve collected and they are sized, weighed and put on display until the main event: public massacring of the snakes. One of the more troubling aspects is that there’s no science to back up the claim that the snakes are suffering from overpopulation. Rattlesnake roundups represent a senseless, primitive and barbaric disregard for the environment, serving to disrupt local ecosystems at all levels,” Dr. Phillip Arena said. Arena is an independent consultant herpetologist working with the Advocates for Snake Preservation. “With removal of such high numbers of

efficient predators, prey animals such as rodents flourish, with the potential to spread disease and which also have a major impact on grain production and storage,” he added. “Rattlesnakes need to be celebrated not decimated and

Presents the

rattlesnake roundups are not the mark of a progressive nation.” Fortunately, the odds of you coming across a rattlesnake are low — there are only 7,000-8,000 TURN TO RATTLERSON 22

Colleges extinguish smoke, while restaurants fall behind By Cassandra Castaño, Mira Costa College Associated Student Government (ASG) Inter-Club Council Chair

Thousands of Americans die each year from preventable second hand smoke exposure (SHS). The Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) moved forward with an executive order on April 7th to ban smoking on all CSU campuses. College officials recognize the harm, and negative impact on a student’s health that comes from smoking. The ban covers all electronic cigarette (e- cig) devices that are becoming popularized today on all college campuses. CampusesGreat! Restaurant patios – not so much. There is no risk free level of exposure to SHS. Tobacco smoke contains over 7,000 chemicals, including hundreds that are toxic and 70 that can cause cancer.

‘Calexit’ movement still alive, but evolving California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


or months, the small but growing movement for California to secede from the United States was stalled in part because its nominal leader lives (for now) in Russia and attended at least one Kremlin-approved event for separatist movements around the globe. But the movement is now changing. The Yes California organization is gone, along with its nominal head, Louis Marinelli (a former San Diego candidate for the state Assembly who teaches English in Russia); so is the putative proposition they hoped to put on the ballot next year. But the idea lives on with a new name and the same on-the-ground leader. Yes California has morphed into the California Freedom Coalition, which announced plans to file a reworded secession initiative petition in Sacramento May 19. At its center remains Marcus Ruiz Evans, whose 2013 book “California’s Next Century 2.10” suggested a kind of semi-independent status for the state. Later, he began advocating complete independence. Evans’ biography reports he worked 10 years as a liaison between California and the federal government. He says the experience taught him this state is fundamentally different from the rest of America. At first, he pushed for a California status akin to Scotland’s within the United Kingdom, both areas at considerable variance with the rest of their countries. (The UK overall voted for Brexit, for example, while Scotland voted strongly to stay in the European Union.)

Evans worked with Marinelli on this cause for more than three years. He says its evolution now teams him with a high-ranking Silicon Valley executive, a top sales counselor and a longtime activist protestor best known for campaigning outside the Texas ranch of then-President George W. Bush. Those individuals did not return emails asking them to confirm their involvement. But the activist, Cindy Sheehan, was due to lead a march to submit the new separation initiative. Evans promised the new petition would have a “better text” than the one he pulled back.If it passes with a large majority, the measure could put California on a course toward independence. Evans believes sovereignty would work out fine. He pooh-poohs the idea of a new Civil War, with the rest of America fighting to hang onto California. Part of his reasoning: A recent poll conducted for a television network and an online business publication found 40 percent of those surveyed in the rest of the nation would like to be rid of California. Evans also claims the Reconstruction-era Supreme Court decision Texas v. White would permit other states to vote to let California go peacefully. But that view was expressed in a dissent, not by the court majority. Which means there is no more of a mechanism for a state to leave now than there was before the Civil War. Of course, there was also no legal way for any colony to leave the British Empire, but it happened. Nevertheless, Evans maintains secession would be both peaceful and fiscally sound. “I don’t believe the rest of America would go to war with us,”

he says. “Unlike the old Confederacy, California doesn’t talk about shooting federal troops and attacking federal forts and bases. California has a culture of non-violence and anti-war activity.” As for finances, while secession skeptics worry about losing federal grants and other spending, Evans notes that California gets back far less in federal spending than it pays in federal taxes. That’s unlike other states, including West Virginia and Mississippi, which get back as much as 50 percent more than they put in. If Californians paid the same taxes they do now, but sent all of it to Sacramento and none to Washington, D.C., he says, all those grants, salaries and Social Security payments would be covered, with plenty to spare. Meanwhile, poll support for the Calexit idea climbed from about 3 percent in 2014 to 32 percent in one springtime survey, the biggest jump coming when Donald Trump became President. That’s major growth, and the longer Trump remains in office despite decisively losing the popular vote, the more it may increase. Right now, this still looks like an extreme longshot, but less so than three years ago. And no one can safely predict where popular sentiment might go in the next 15 months, when secession could come to its first-ever vote.

The ban covers all electronic cigarette (e- cig) devices that are becoming popularized today on all college campuses. Campuses- Great! Restaurant patios – not so much. For non-smokers, breathing SHS has immediate harmful effects on the heart and blood vessels. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, SHS causes nearly 34,000 heart disease deaths each year during 2005 through 2009 among adult non-smokers. Research out of the HHS Public Health Service found that smoke free laws also help 7 out of 10 smokers who are trying to quit, by creating smoke-free public environments that are free from any pressure or temptation to smoke. At the same time, I will be embarking on my first semester as a CSU San Marcos student, CSU San Marcos, will be joining the twenty-three CSU campuses that are going smoke free in the Fall 2017 semes-

ter (and SDSU has been smoke-free since 2014). I’ve seen how tobacco addiction has caused suffering among close relatives and on their health and well-being. As an Oceanside resident I appreciate a policy that restricts smoking on all outdoor patios, and it’s great that whenever I plan to go out to eat with friends and family that I don’t have to worry about inhaling smoke when I take the next bite of my meal. Cal State San Marcos becoming a smoke-free campus is exciting, but what about clean air to breathe on outdoor patios in North Count cities. I want to be protected by SHS on campus, off campus; especially when I go out to eat. On numerous occasions when I see smoking on an outdoor patio of a restaurant, and instead of eating outside and enjoying the weather, I am forced to eat inside because of the uncomfortable feeling from the strong smell of smoke. I feel like my health risks are being disregarded. Creating smoke-free environments should be a priority for all local municipalities. Public officials are supposed to protect the community and create safe environments. CSU officials too steps to become smoke-free and that initiative is a model for the rest of the community. With summer right around the corner, more people want to enjoy time and even meals outside. According to American Lung Association, there are 146 municipalities in California with policies to restrict smoking in at least some outdoor dining areas. Over one hundred cities have ordinances prohibiting smoking on dining patios. In San Diego County, the cities of Carlsbad, Chula Vista, Del Mar, El Cajon, Encinitas, National City, Oceanside, and Solana Beach restrict smoking in all outdoor dining areas while Coronado and City of San Diego restrict smoking in outdoor dining but allow exemptions. SHS exposure effects adults and children in different ways. Negative health effects in adults include an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, lung cancer, and respiratory illnesses. While children are at high risk of asthma, respiratory infection/ illnesses, bronchitis, ear infections, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDs). It is time for cities in North County to make outdoor dining patios smoke-free; and join the examples being set by the CSU system and other cities in San Diego County, and to protect us from smoking in all outdoor dining areas.

A sneak peek at this year’s San Diego County fair By Bianca Kaplanek

REGION – As the fairgrounds in Del Mar are transformed into the place “Where the West is Fun” for the 2017 San Diego County Fair, one burning question remains: What is Charles Boghosian frying up this year? “Are you ready?” the gastronomic genius better known as Chicken Charlie asked at a May 17 press conference. “Krispy Kreme chicken ice cream.” It’s a fried boneless chicken breast and 5-ounce slab of Blue Bunny vanilla ice cream between two jelly doughnut halves topped with Fruity Pebbles. “As you know, I created the Krispy Kreme chicken sandwich, which combines my two favorite foods,” he said. “But it was missing ice cream, my next favorite food, so I added that.” Other culinary offerings include Boghosian’s fried peanut butter meatballs, buffalo chicken or cheese ravioli on a stick from Pignotti’s and octopus on a stick from Reno’s Fish and Chips. Fairgoers can also pig out on bacon-wrapped asparagus with cayenne pepper and pineapple or Brussel sprouts topped with parmesan cheese at the Bring Home the Bacon stand. Grilled Cheese A-Fair will offer “animal-style”

patty melt or jalapeño pepper and bacon sandwiches served with mesquite barbecue potato chips. An authentic Wild West Saloon will be serving the Rooty Tooty Cocktail, made with sarsaparilla and spiced rum. In addition to food, rides and nightly concerts that include Patti LaBelle, Toby Keith, Darius Rucker and Switchfoot, to name a few, this year’s annual fair will feature activities and exhibits such as a cattle drive, panning for gold, camping out on the prairie, a frontier town and art and displays about this historic

time in the United States. Fairgoers can expect to encounter famous outlaws such as Jesse James or Black Bart and meet the fearless women of the West, including Calamity Jane and Annie Oakley. They will also learn how to saddle up, rope and ride man’s best friend of the time. Journey to the Winner’s Circle will celebrate the pageantry, traditions and history of horse racing at the Del Mar Fairgrounds as the seaside venue prepares to host its first Breeder’s Cup in November.

There will be pop culture and fictional and nonfictional heroes such as John Wayne, Will Rogers and Clint Eastwood, as well as big and small screen characters including the Cartwright family from “Bonanza,” Woody from “Toy Story,” the Lone Ranger and the cast of “Little House of the Prairie.” Also planned are a quick “draw” contest for artists, who must create a plein air painting in four hours, cowboy poetry, ghost towns, Western arts, crafts and costumes, recognition of the Native

American contribution to the Wild West, a beard and moustache contest and cow chip bingo. Because agricultural is at the core of all county fairs, this year’s event will again highlight area 4-H and Future Farmers of America clubs. On July 1, youth will auction off their livestock to raise money for scholarships. “It’s a wonderful tradition that reminds us of our agricultural roots as we become a more urban environment,” said Fred Schenk, director of the fair board.

For those who need a break from the action or some healthy food options, nine-year sponsor Albertsons/Vons will have market area selling everything from fresh fruit and wraps to diapers and stomach relief aids. The San Diego County Fair is the largest in California and fifth largest in North America. It opens at 4 p.m. June 2 and runs through July 4. It will be closed the first four Mondays and three Tuesdays. Visit for more information and a schedule of events.

hmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod! Guests are arriving in two days! And not family, for whom I could leave things just clean enough. No, these are complete strangers from another country. That means I have no idea what their definition is of “clean” or what sort of home would be considered presentable. None of that really matters, though, because I am actually driven by the ghost of my mother. Guests were royalty and your home needed to be in flawless shape for their arrival. I cannot fight my DNA. With my dear but messy husband home all the time now, the challenge to bring the house up to snuff has increased tenfold. Much of what needs to be done, couldn’t be done until zero hour, or it would be undone within half an hour. So today, it’s on! I have been washing towels, sheets, blankets and rugs. I will be making beds, scouring bathrooms and mopping floors with a vengeance. Then I must turn my attention to the back patio. You see, the guest room slider opens onto it and a hot tub, and these folks love to be outdoors. However, that area is knee deep in the winter’s rain flotsam and jetsam, weeds, dirty patio furniture and spider webs. I am throwing back an extra-large Mick Jagger triple espresso in preparation to turn the entire backyard into a lovely spring retreat. I have already spent a week bailing rainwater out of the hot tub, then cleaning it, then filling it, then chlorinating it, only to discover the old filter was not working. This required ordering the wrong size replacement, returning it and finding the right size, to be delivered ultra-super express. I also spent a few hours sneakily spraying bug-killer around the guest room doors, the hot tub and adjacent patio areas, so that our visitors do not have to bunk with the usual healthy array of arachnids. Don’t tell my husband. He loves bugs. The balance of the day was spent racing from one panic overload to another. As I replaced towels, I spotted filthy light switches and door handles. As I moved the bed, I found steroid-fed dust TURN TO SMALL TALK ON 16

High attendance at annual ‘Heroes of Vista’ By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Vista community members united for the city’s annual “Heroes of Vista Awards Gala” which marked its sixth year of celebration. More than 300 individuals joined at the Carlsbad Sheraton for the festivities. The evening was described as a resounding success due to the collaborative efforts. Vista Chamber of Commerce CEO Bret Schanzenbach shared that 14 people received awards. “We had people honored in all facets of life,” he said. “This event brings everybody together to celebrate the people who are

making an impact in our community.” Those honored included teachers, businesses, a law enforcement officer, a firefighter and a military veteran. A lifetime achievement honor also was awarded. In the corporate sector, honorees included Open Source Maker Lab, Tri-City Medical Center, Bear Roots Brewing, Medhi Chitgari of Classic Chariots. In the nonprofit category, Boys & Girls Club of Vista was honored. On the educational front, winners included Andrew Driffill of Hanalei Elementary School, Roger

Royster of Vista Magnet Middle School, Ramiro Santana of Temple Heights Elementary, Velia Huerta of Alta Vista High School and Laura Smith of Casita Center. Community awards were designated to firefighter Mike McFadden, Deputy Kia Bowman and military veteran Robert Noble. Kathy Brombacher was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. According to Schanzenbach, the Vista Education Foundation chose winners in the scholastic category while the sheriff and fire departments implemented their

protocol. “The executive committee of the board of directors (Vista Chamber of Commerce) determines three finalists in each of the five business categories,” Schanzenbach said. “Then a panel of 10 chamber colleagues, from outside of the area, rate the finalists' applications and those ratings determine the winners. The winners were revealed at the dinner event.” The Heroes of Vista planning committee chose both the Military Veteran of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award winners. During the evening,

silent and live auctions helped raise monies for the Vista Education Foundation. Tri-City Medical Center received recognition as the event sponsor. Historically, the annual Heroes of Vista Awards Gala can bring the entire community together for one big celebration, which enhances the town. Schanzenbach pointed out that the event offers a platform for the community to take pride in the positive steps they have created within different sectors. “People may not be aware of these things in their daily life, so this event raises a lot of awareness,” Schanzenbach said.

Locals react to medical marijuana festival By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Unless elephant rides and the possible sale of the Del Mar Fairgrounds are being discussed, few people attend the monthly meetings of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which governs the state-owned facility. But a small group is on hand nearly every second Tuesday to share recent information with board members about the harmful effects of smoking and drug use, particularly on youth. After years they successfully lobbied the 22nd DAA to make the San Diego County Fair a smokefree event. They continue their efforts to eliminate marijuana smoking at the many concerts held onsite. So controversy was imminent following a recent announcement that the fairgrounds would host The Goodlife Festival, “Where Cannabis, Great Food, Live Music and More Come Together By The Surf and Sand” to make the “good life” even better, according to a press release. Eventgoers must be 21 and older to attend the Sept. 23 “celebration” that will include “hundreds of the best award-winning local and regional cannabis growers, experts, dispensaries, delivery products, cannabis-derived health products and more.” Billed as educational and informative, The Goodlife Festival will feature exhibitions and seminars that will guide attendees to appreciate and learn more about how cannabis — “when used in a safe, appreciative, legal, and healthful way — can enhance a creative, spirited, relaxed (and pain-free!) lifestyle.” Topics are slated to include what’s available, how to ingest it, what the medical world has learned, what’s legal “and how to play by the rules.” How did such a potentially provocative event find its way to the fairgrounds?

Westward Expos, a Del Mar-based company headed by Lawrence Bame, has been producing home and garden shows at the seaside venue for more than 30 years. “Lawrence has been after us for four or five years now (about the festival),” fairgrounds General Manager Tim Fennell said. “Lawrence calls us on a regular basis.” This past November, Bame made his latest pitch to the 22nd DAA. Two months later he said there nothing to report because he was “being ignored” by the directors. “It’s a nonstory,” he said. “They didn’t ask me any questions. They didn’t want to touch it.” But on March 22, Bame signed a $12,000 contract to hold The Goodlife Festival at the fairgrounds. “We’re an agricultural facility,” Fennell said when asked why he finally agreed to the event. “Cannabis is an agricultural crop and it’s being embraced by the Farm Bureau and the Department of Food and Agriculture in the state. “I don’t know if I can respond to everyone that’s anti everything,” he added. “This is not during the annual fair. It’s a one-day event and basically it’s educational.” Fennell said a changing climate about marijuana use, which he attributes

to the 2016 passage of Proposition 64 that legalizes recreational marijuana, also affected his decision. “But the show has nothing to do with Proposition 64,” he said. “The show that Lawrence is putting on is educational. In all fairness it’s unfortunately being represented, in my opinion, incorrectly in some of the media. “It’s going to celebrate the legal use of cannabis — everything from medical cannabis appreciation to its various health benefits,” Fennell added. “If I attend, which I assume I will, I’m going there for the educational aspects of it. I’m not consuming.” Fennell said his late brother had disabilities and was prone to seizures. “I want to know if it helps people with seizures,” he said. “Could this have helped him? I don’t know. I think we need to learn about it. Whether we partake in it, that’s something else.” At the festival, only people with medical marijuana cards can bring and consume their own products and smoking must be done outside. Cannabis products on display during the event cannot be purchased, sampled or consumed. Goodlife will include cook i ng-w it h - c a n nabis demonstrations and the Del Mar Cannabis Cup, during which a profession-

al panel will judge “the best of the best in cannabis products” with a People’s Choice Award and salutes to the winners, the press release states. The nine-member 22nd DAA board generally does not approve the more than 350 events held annually at the fairgrounds, other than major ones such as KAABOO, a three-day entertainment festival. While members were aware there was interest to host a medical cannabis event that would focus on medical usage and education, most heard about Goodlife through the media or a 12:40 a.m. email sent by Fennell before the event was made public. “I do think there were a couple of board members that were blindsided a little bit and that’s my fault,” Fennell said. “I take full responsibility for that.” “This is not like having a wedding,” Director Lee Haydu said. “For something this drastic, I would like to have known about it beforehand.” Director Stephen Shewmaker said the board needs to review and approve a policy regarding cannabis events in a public forum that includes input from all stakeholders. “Hosting a cannabis event is a policy decision which needs approval of the board,” he said. “A special meeting will be scheduled in the near fu-

ture which will consider a policy which conforms to guidelines that are being finalized by the Department of Food and Agriculture.” After seeing the press release, another director said the event “appears a little light on the education and medicinal focus.” Local legislators, who have no jurisdiction over fairgrounds events, also were caught off guard. “I was surprised to first hear of this event after the contract had been signed by the 22nd DAA staff,” Del Mar City Councilman Dwight Worden said. “The controversy now surrounding this event was entirely predictable. Good practice, whether legally required or not, would have been for the 22nd DAA staff to put this proposal on their public board agenda for public review and board direction. “Del Mar and many of our concerned residents could have participated and expressed our views, but unfortunately, that kind of open process was not followed,” he added. Medical marijuana has been allowed in California since 1996 but all uses are still considered illegal under federal law. “The 22nd DAA needs to address whether or not it is appropriate for a public agency to be contracting for and promoting an event that may be in violation of federal law,” Worden said, adding that “surprises like this” run counter to a recent trend of improved communications between the city, in which the facility is located, and the board. Councilwoman Ginger Marshall, from adjacent Solana Beach, was equally disappointed. “The decision to hold the cannabis festival at the state-owned fairgrounds was irresponsible,” she said. “It sends a disturbing message to our children that marijuana use is OK. “This event will undoubtedly attract pot users from all over the state and TURN TO MARIJUANA ON 14

received scholarship offers from the University of Utah, University of California at Berkeley, San Diego State University and the University of California at Santa Barbara, among other schools. He says the most recent offer, Butler, is symbolic of a shift in his recruitment. “I think that it shows that the East Coast is looking at me, too,” Washington said. “It shows that I am getting noticed all around the country, and that is a pretty good feeling, but I know that I still have work to get done.

“I’m nowhere near where I think I can be, because the sky is the limit for me, but I know I have to work,” Washington said. Washington has showcased his talent over the spring with his travel basketball team, Gamepoint, playing on the Adidas Uprising Gold Circuit with his 17u Gamepoint Pump and Run Team. Through eight games on the circuit, Washington is averaging 7.6 points and a team-high 6.2 rebounds, modest statistics to the untrained eye, but his AAU coach said that coaches

are seeing more than just Washington’s scoring. “An offer from a school like Butler, a top-25 school in the Big East, one of the most physical conferences in the country, says a lot about what his upside is,” Gamepoint Pump and Run Coach Charlie Mercado said. “He’s been working his butt off and getting stronger, and he’s been doing other things beyond scoring that the coaches are recognizing. “One of the things that really stands out is his ability to move the ball and pass the ball,” Mercado said.

The top three myths about hair transplant surgery OCEANSIDE — If you’ve been considering hair restoration, you want to have all the facts. As with any surgical procedure, misinformation is everywhere. Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD, wants to help you make an informed decision about whether hair restoration is right for you, right now. Because client satisfaction is important to him, Wagner wants to dispel three of the most common myths about hair restoration. Myth #1: Hair restoration is expensive “This doesn’t have to be true,” Wagner said. “Hair restoration, like anything, takes planning and choosing the right surgeon is key.” The specialists at MyHairTransplantMD will have their initial consultation with you where they will assess your hair loss situation and your desired results. “With proper planning and execution, you are going to get the results you’re looking for,” Wagner said.

“We will get it right for you the first time. If you go running from doctor to doctor, not only will you be lacking in a comprehensive plan, but it will end up costing you more money.” Choosing a surgeon who will give you a plan of attack for not just your current hair loss but also any future hair loss is key. “The plan for someone who has thin hair is different from someone who has lost it all,” Wagner said. We help you replace it as you lose

it, at the pace that is specific to your case.” Wagner said that a hair restoration plan done right will only need to be done once. Myth #2: Any doctor can perform hair transplant surgery “Hair restoration is a specialty, and you want to go to a specialist,” Wagner said. “Specialists are trained to treat you in the long term.” MyHairTransplantMD offers only specialized hair resto-

ration services.“Our surgeons are highly trained and skilled at performing hair restoration surgery,” Wagner said. “It’s the only thing we do here, and we stand by the results our surgeons deliver. Our team in particular has a more artistic approach than some of the other offices that might offer it.” With the growth in popularity of robotic surgery in the industry, Wagner advises clients to consider the risks involved. “Robotic surgery enables less skilled surgeons to perform procedures, but here we feel that there is a valuable difference when choosing a surgeon over a robot,” he said. “We perform our surgeries by hand and our results reflect the vast difference between the details that only the human eye can see versus what a robot can.” Myth #3: Results are immediate “You didn’t lose your hair overnight, and we can’t restore it overnight,” Wagner said. “We are redistributing your hair, not creating it.” MyHairTransplantMD uses patented technology to map

Emergency simulation held in San Marcos SAN MARCOS, CA— North County Transit District (NCTD) officials and first responders participated in a full-scale emergency exercise May 16 along the railway in San Marcos. The exercises took place near Mission Avenue and Valpreda Road and included both a SPRINTER vehicle and LIFT paratransit vehicle. "The goal of this simulation was to measure NCTD’s and other agencies' Standard Operating Procedures during a major emergency situation," said Tim Cutler, Director of the Operations Control Center at NCTD. First responder agencies throughout the region participated in the exercise. This included San Diego County Sheriff's Transit Enforcement Services Unit, as well as fire departments from San Marcos, Carlsbad, Deer Springs - Cal Fire, Escondido, Rancho Santa Fe, Vista, and AMR Ambulance. NCTD's bus operator, First Transit, and rail operator, Bombardier, also participated in the exercise. "As different agencies, we came together last night and were able to see how we worked together in an emergency situation and see where we could improve. That's really what this is all about—continuous improvement, going from good to better," said Cutler. In preparation for the exercise, NCTD and other agencies began meeting months in advance. These meetings brought together different agencies to plan for and ensure that the simulation was executed properly and safely. To help make the simulation even more realistic,

your hair loss pattern and then defines and measures the area you are looking to restore. “We can discuss whether you are looking for coverage or density,” Wagner said. “The process takes time and planning. If someone tells you it’s immediate, they are misleading you. It’s technically impossible to restore in one day the hair that took years to lose.” As with any surgical procedure, having accurate information will guide you to make the best possible decision. The team at MyHairTransplantMD is happy to spend time with you to discuss any questions and address any concerns you might have about hair restoration. MyHairTransplantMD is located at 2103 S. El Camino Real, Suite 201 in Oceanside. For a stepby-step guide to their consultation process and a complete explanation of pricing, visit their website at or call the office at (800) 262-2017.

the San Marcos Fire Department—who coordinated the first responders— chose to not inform the fire teams ahead of time about the event but instead coordinated with the various chiefs to ensure that each department had sufficient coverage for actual emergencies. They also arranged to bring volunteers from the emergency medical technician program at Palomar College who had wound makeup and played the part of victims. NCTD also included volunteers who had disabilities as victims in the emergency exercise. This addition allowed first responders to consider how they would address various situations in an emergency unique to rail and bus operations. This simulation was part of an ongoing effort to conduct emergency simulations throughout the NCTD system. Each scenario presents a complex set of challenges to NCTD staff, contractors, and first responders, where they can test their emergency plans and procedures.

San Marcos ‘doodler’ wins $7,500 prize in art contest By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — Gregg Visintainer has been doodling since he was 15 years old, creating intri-

cately detailed ink drawings that include messages hidden with each zig and zag of a pen stroke. So when La Victoria

announced it was looking for artists for a competition in commemoration of the Mexican salsa company’s 100th anniversary, Visin-

tainer said he thought the company might dig his doodles. Turns out he was right. The San Marcos artist recently won first prize in La Victoria’s art contest, which yielded dozens of entrants across the county. The prize: a cool $7,500, pretty good for a guy who says he’s never entered an art contest before. “I just have never been about doing competitions,” said Visintainer, who runs the Viz Art Ink Gallery in downtown Carlsbad. “But when I saw this, I thought it was cool that a company was celebrating 100 years and I thought it was cool that they would commemorate that by supporting local artists.” The winning artwork depicts a bottle of La Victoria salsa with a sunset and beach in the backdrop, done in Visintainer’s trademark style. Words and phrases describe the salsa and the history of the company.

Paragliding accident injures man, unites community ry therapy,” Annis added. “They are trying to strengthen his lungs and get his temperature back to normal. Tyler is able to talk and eat, but he is still heavily sedated for the

pain, so even simple tasks are difficult.” Paragliding, for anyone who doesn’t know, is an adventure sport wherein the pilot sits inside a harness underneath a “kite,” and drifts along on

air currents. It does not use a motor (that’s powered paragliding), and paragliders are not towed behind boats (that’s parasailing). It’s foot-launched, and some flights can last for hours.

State Route 76 East Project Celebrates Grand Opening REGION — Federal, state and local officials gathered today to celebrate the opening of the State Route 76 East Project – the final of three large-scale improvement projects along the SR-76 corridor between Interstate 15 and Interstate 5. The project constructed $202 million of improvements to relieve existing and future traffic congestion, improve safety and protect the environment. “This project provides an example of the Department’s commitment to build projects that provide new transportation choices while enhancing and protecting the environment and the livability of adja-

cent communities,” said Caltrans District 11 Director Laurie Berman. The SR-76 East Project stretches 5.2 miles from South Mission Road in Bonsall to I-15 in Fallbrook and serves local, intraregional and interregional traffic. It included construction of a new SR-76/I-15 interchange and expansion of the SR-76/ Old Highway 395 Park and Ride, increasing parking capacity and adding electric vehicle charging stations. The realigned and widened four-lane highway also now has a center divider, improved sight distances, updated bridges over the San Luis Rey River and standard width shoulders in

MAY IS AMERICAN STROKE AWARENESS MONTH By Dr. Jack Schim, Neurologist Anyone can be a hero merely by recognizing the F.A.S.T. warning signs of stoke so you’re ready to take action! Learn as much as you can about signs, symptoms, and the science of what happens in your brain during a stroke. Here are some crucial facts you should know about stroke. • Stroke can be prevented. The major risk factors for stroke include high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and smoking. In addition, being overweight, and sleep apnea are other common treatable factors. • Stroke is treatable. Most strokes are caused by a blocked blood vessel in the brain, and with rapid treatment in the hospital, within the first few hours, effective interventions are available. Time is of the essence. Stroke is a brain attack, and every minute of untreated stroke can cause death of 2 million brain cells. • Stroke can be identified. FAST is an acronym used as a mnemonic (a device used to assist in remembering something) to help detect and enhance responsiveness to stroke victim needs. The acronym stands for Facial drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulties and Time to call emergency services. • Facial drooping: A section of the face, usually only on one

side, that is drooping and hard to move. This can be recognized by a crooked smile. • Arm weakness: The inability to raise one’s arm fully. • Speech difficulties: An inability or difficulty to understand or produce speech. • Time: If any of the symptoms above are showing, time is of the essence; call the emergency services or go to the hospital. Learn more about Stroke at a FREE health lecture on May 23, 10 a.m. at the TriCity Wellness Center located at 6250 El Camino Real, Carlsbad, 92009. Open to the public, light snacks will be provided. To find out more about Dr. Jack Schim, to make an appointment, or to get information about upcoming lectures please call 855.222.8262 or visit

Fast Facts • 80% of all strokes are preventable • Every 40 seconds someone in the U.S. has a stroke • Nearly 2 Million brain cells die each minute a stroke goes untreated • Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S. • When minutes matter TCMC assesses Emergency Room patients immediately through our accelerated “Pit Stop” program

A key attribute of this project was the Environmental Mitigation Program (EMP) that slated $80 million in TransNet funds to protect, preserve and restore habitat adjacent to the SR-76 corridor between I-5 and I-15. In total, close to 1,600 acres of property were purchased to support habitat conservation and the San Luis Rey River Park Plan in this corridor. “Today marks the

(It is) not an attraction for pot users and cultivators. My hope is that the fair board will reverse this decision and cancel the event.” Peggy Walker from San Dieguito Alliance for Drug Free Youth and a regular at the monthly fair board meetings said she was “flabbergasted and dumbfounded” when she heard about the event. “I feel that this decision is an affront to … Del Mar and Solana Beach,” she said. “There was no heads up to the community, to elected officials or even to fair board directors. I did not move to this beautiful seaside haven to live in an oasis of pot tolerance.” Her colleague Judi Strang said at the very least the festival should be postponed until January, when state regulations for recreational marijuana use are in place.

completion of another one of SANDAG’s high-priority transportation projects, a promise made through its TransNet Early Action Program,” commented SANDAG Chair and San Diego County Supervisor Ron Roberts. “The improved fourlane highway connecting Oceanside to the I-15 eases the movement of people and goods throughout our North County communities and demonstrates SANDAG’s commitment to enhancing the county’s transportation network.” Earlier improvements included the SR-76 West project from I-5 to Melrose Drive completed in 1999, and the SR-76 Middle project from Melrose Drive to South Mission Road completed in 2012. The project was funded with the regional TransNet half-cent sales tax for transportation, federal funds, developer fees, county of San Diego Transportation Impact Fees and contributions from Native American tribes. Project information is available at Press release provided by Caltrans. val is a 21-and-older event, she said her organization is concerned because word is already out among teenagers, who see the festival as normalizing marijuana use. Bame said he would not consider rescheduling the festival because the regulations apply to recreational use and Goodlife is focused on medical use. “Remember that a majority of voters, both in (California) and especially in North County cities (such as) Del Mar and Solana Beach, approved Prop. 64,” he said. “This event is the best opportunity to educate large numbers of San Diegans about just what cannabis is and how to safely use it, if it is right for them.” Bame is expecting about 6,000 attendees. He said security will check IDs at the entrance to verify age. Tickets are $35. In addition to the $12,000 from the contract, the fairgrounds will receive revenue from parking and food and beverage sales.

have enjoyed the history and progress of Little Italy in downtown San Diego for some time. The colorful 10-block area just north of city central is brimming with restaurants, small grocery stores, high rise condos and a proud cultural neighborhood unlike any other in this beautiful coastal city. Enter Pali Wine Company, the first urban winery in Little Italy. Pali is an interesting story. The two founders began in 2005, when entrepreneurs Tim Perr and Scott Knight of Pacific Palisades, a suburb of Los Angeles, pooled their passions and resources and settled into Lompoc along the Central Coastal area of California. Being smart people, they quickly sized up the potential for Pinot Noir (must have seen “Sidewaysâ€? since they opened same year.) In the years that followed, Pali Wine Company went from 1,500 cases of wine produced to 20,000 cases a year. Their business model is to “make terrior-driven wines and to bring these wines to the consumer at the best possible prices without compromising quality.â€? Pali Wines may have found the way to do just that: Urban Winery Tasting Rooms! What’s that you say? These are small shops with a bar, tables inside and outside and a single brand of wine usually in a downtown district. After opening in Lompoc and Santa Barbara, the San Diego Little Italy tasting room opened for business late last year on India Street with a lineup of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. A second brand, Tower 15, was created to cover Rhone Valley and Bordeaux blends. You can purchase a select number of wines by the bottle, but the consumer is fascinated by the wines on tap, with a daily chalked menu

t was 2012 when first I covered Isabelle Baril’s food swap, the grass roots social gathering she started in Cardiff. It was a fascinating conversation for me as I was introduced to this dynamic French Canadian with a very interesting background, been having raised in a small town in Quebec where farming, foraging, hunting and trapping, fishing, making cheese, canning and butchering were a way of life. Besides that, her sewing skills have led to making baby costumes in the form of food such as turkey, lobster and lemon meringue pie. This landed her on Martha Stewart’s TV show and Martha was fascinated by her creations. Flash forward five years and Isabelle has opened another creative chapter in her life as chef/teacher at Lazy Acres and chef/owner at Belle Cal Seasonal. I caught up recently to learn more about her new endeavors.  LTP: Chef teacher at Lazy Acres seems like a perfect gig for you, how did that come about?  Isabelle Baril: I heard they wanted

in the community so I talked about the food swap I started and how I’ve been volunteering garden farm to table at Paul Ecke for seven years and my culinary experience and it seemed like a perfect fit. Being the resident chef for the Moonlight Room has been such a fun ride and I love it.  LTP: How do you feel that growing up in a family with a butcher dad and a family of hunters, fishermen and farmers in Quebec has influenced your style?  Isabelle: I'm so proud of where I come from. The way I was raised and the way we appreciate nature and where the food comes from, that’s what I want to teach my own kids. I had a great childhood, running around the woods

and foraging everything. We hunted and fished a lot. I loved trapping rabbits with my brothers but it’s the re-

spect that goes along with it that my family taught me that I am so thankful of.   LTP: What a great store to teach at and the teaching kitchen is very wellequipped. What are some of the features that make it such an amazing place to take a class?  Isabelle: The classes are so fun. I teach for all levels so people should not be intimidated by them. They are affordable and the amazing Lazy Acres market is my pantry. I can fit up to 16 stoves, everyone has their own cutting board and TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 17

Samuel Whitney Rowland, Jr. May 17, 2017

Samuel Whitney Rowland, Jr. passed away on May 7 at the age of 95. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Evelyn (Reed) Rowland, daughters Nancy Rowland and Sandra Rowland and his sister Doris Fisher. He is also survived by daughter in law Mary Lynn Slattery, son in law Michael Weddle and two grandsons; Stephen Weddle and Christopher Weddle. Mr. Rowland lived with his family in Del Mar for 40 years enjoying the ocean view from his home. He moved to North-

ern California several years ago. He was born in Ocealeta Oklahoma and moved with his parents and siblings in the 1930s to the Central Valley of California. While attending high school in Coalinga, he was a popular baseball player who earned the nickname of “Cowboy” due to his Oklahoma roots. After high school, when the U.S. entered World War II, he enlisted in the Navy and served as a medic attached to the Marines. Deployed to the South Pacific, he served honorably for four years and was involved in various battles. He documented his experiences in the War in an unpublished memoir. Mr. Rowland continued to keep in touch with many of his fellow soliders over the years and in his later years enjoyed participating in his ship’s reunion for the USS Noble each year. After the War, Mr. Rowland attended San Jose State University

where he graduated in Industrial Relations and Social Sciences. After graduation he began his professional career in San Diego at Convair/General Dynamics in the early 1950s. He began as a Project Safety Engineer and moved to General Atomic in Torrey Pines in the 1960s where he became the Manager of Safety and Accident Prevention. He was honored with being named the Engineer of the Year in the San Diego Engineering Council in 1966 He was also active in his professional association, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE). He served not only in the San Diego Chapter but also as a member of the national Board of Directors. In 1991 he was named a Fellow in the ASSE, the highest honor awarded by the association. He was instrumental in developing the local poison prevention program and implementing it throughout San Diego. Mr. Rowland never met a stranger and had a number of lifelong

friends with whom he kept in touch over the years. Those who were fortunate to be among his friends will remember him as someone who loved and embraced life to the fullest and had a particular gift for story telling. He was passionate about good food and fine wine, becoming a wine consultant in his retirement. Over the years, friends and family enjoyed his famous wine tasting dinners which were both social occasions and often fundraisers for local causes. Mr. Rowland and his wife, often with other friends, enjoyed several trips to Europe where they toured wineries of France, Germany, Spain and Italy getting to know dozens of winemakers. Mr. Rowland also pursued his artistic talents in oil painting and jewelry making. He was an avid football fan and had season tickets to the San Diego State Aztec games and the Holiday Bowl. There are no services at this time. A memorial service may be scheduled at a later date.

media. The El Dorado docks at Shelter Island San Diego every year with the latest wines, hosted by Regional Manager Mike Hurst. He and bar manager Nate Martin popped the corks on several varietals of Ferrari-Carano new release wines as the luxury yacht El Dorado toured the bays and inlets of the Pacific Ocean, San Diego style. Wines included the very popular Fume Blanc, Chardonnay, Siena Tuscan blend and Cabernet Sauvignon. I revisited the Siena a couple of times. Several supermarkets carry this extraordinary value wine

($21). It has a Sangiovese base plus a Bordeaux-style blend, making for a delicious flavor of pomegranate, plum and cherry, mocha and licorice plus soft tannins from the get-go.

heir work might get hit by an oversize truck, blown away in a thunder storm or turned into a mixed media by the seagulls and pigeons but artists in Encinitas California are dedicated to keeping Arts Alive as a gift to the public who walk or drive along the Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas. Every year since 2001 the original paintings by invited artists are displayed on the light poles for everyone to see. The six miles of visual pleasure presented by the 101 Artists’ Colony and Leucadia 101 Main Street Association has become a tradition people expect to see. The unveiling is a sight to behold when the veils drop to reveal an overload of color and subjects that takes a while to absorb.

them online at then call in a bid to Leucadia 101 Main Street at 760-436-2320. The final Auction is set for Sunday, May 21st at the Cardiff Town Center, 2087 San Elijo next to the Seaside Market. The 99 original paintings will be on display all day hanging from the balcony with a reception at 1:30. The final auction starts at 2 pm with our favorite auctioneer rich houk. This year’s Arts Alive Exhibit Sponsors are Hansen’s Surf Shop, Cardiff Seaside Market, Janet Lawless Christ & Company and our Media Sponsor The Coast News Group. It has been an honor for me to have worked with such an incredible bunch of Artists and Volunteers over the past 17 years Keeping Arts Alive in Encinitas.

Can you share some of what’s offered and what people can expect in one of your classes? Isabelle: We have many different classes from paella night to pasta 101. When I teach the pasta class, we even infused them with herbs and squid ink or beer juice, make our own ricotta cheese to fill our raviolis. Kids classes are such a good thing to keep the little ones busy and show them early how to be healthy and hands on in the kitchen. We even have our little “mommy and me” classes that are for 2 to 5 year olds, so much fun for them to be involved at an early age and follow recipes.

generally the last to leave the water, for any reason. “They’ve been there forever,” said Oceanside resident Jamey Stone, who has been surfing North County San Diego for the

past three decades and said he is undaunted by the recent sightings. “It’s just that now, because of cellphones and drones, we just see them more often — not to mention over-fishing.” The other obvious question is what to do if

you’re caught in the water, and you spot that telltale dorsal fin? Ralph Collier, form the Shark Research Committee tells us the main thing to do is also the most difficult: don’t panic. “Try to keep sight of the shark at all times,”

cautions Collier, “so you can determine if the shark’s movements are smooth and leisurely, or erratic and agitated.” Collier’s information comes from a handy Q&A on : “If the latter,” he says, “move swiftly to shore,

a rock, or even a floating kelp canopy. Adult white sharks tend to avoid kelp forests and canopy’s [SIC], and in fact several divers during the Twentieth Century escaped aggressive white sharks by using these two natural barriers.”

Even with the recent increase in apex predator appearances, it’s still unlikely that the average swimmer will have an incident. Just remember to keep your wits about you, and one eye on the environment.


mane Society offers helpful guidelines for what to do to prevent, and what to do in case of, rattlesnake bites to your beloved pet. From “Actively scan the path in front of you always, regardless of where you are. Rattlesnakes notoriously show up in places other than hiking trails, such as backyards, roadways and residential areas. Also scan the areas surrounding your path — it’s common for rattlesnakes to nestle in the shrubbery that lines pathways and when threatened, they can lunge up to half their body length.” Rattlesnakes are alive and well, and now that it’s

warmer, they’re awake. The good news is that you’re unlikely to see one, and even less likely to get bitten. “Remember: they are harmless if you don’t mess with them, if you corner them, they only have one thing to do — they’re gonna protect themselves,” Derr said. “You will never find an aggressive snake anywhere in California.” But if the idea of a rattlesnake wriggling across your path still fills you with heebie-jeebies, common sense will give you an even greater advantage, so you can enjoy the miles and miles of hiking trails San Diego County has to offer.


venomous snake bites a year in the U.S. (and that’s all breeds of venomous snakes), and of those bitten, there are only about five deaths. And here’s even better news: with a few simple best-practices — namely, watch where you step and never put your hands where you can’t see them — you can drastically reduce the odds of being bitten. It’s worth mentioning that, in all their years of wrangling and rescuing, neither Derr nor Slyapich have been bitten. The San Diego Hu-

A snakebite emergency plan should be developed before it is needed. If you are less than one hour from the nearest emergency room, initial treatment is relatively simple: • Call 9-1-1 immediately! • Try to calm the victim. • Gently wash the area with soap and water. • Apply a cold, wet cloth over the bite. There are several things that should NOT be done as they will not help and can actually be even more dangerous to the victim: • DO NOT apply a tourniquet. • DO NOT pack the bite area in ice. • DO NOT cut the wound with a knife or razor. • DO NOT use your mouth to suck out the venom. • DO NOT let the victim drink alcohol. If you are more than one hour from an emergency facility, your emergency snakebite plan becomes more complicated. You need to know the following information: Where is the nearest hospital emergency room? How long will it take 9-1-1 emergency responders to arrive on the scene? How close will you be to a fire department, park ranger, highway patrol, Sheriff or Coast Guard station? In addition, it is always a good idea to:

Hike or camp with a buddy who will be able to go for help. Take along a portable phone. Notify people where you will be and check in with them. If a rattlesnake injects venom into the wound, a variety of symptoms develop: swelling, pain, bleeding at the site, nausea, vomiting, sweating, chills, dizziness, weakness, numbness or tingling of the mouth or tongue, and changes in the heart rate and blood pressure. Other symptoms can include excessive salivation, thirst, swollen eyelids, blurred vision, muscle spasms and unconsciousness. Rattlesnake venom also interferes with the ability of the blood to clot properly. Severe symptoms can be life-threatening and must be treated with antivenin, which is given intravenously with fluids. Nationwide, there are over 800 cases of rattlesnake bites reported annually to the American Association of Poison Control Centers. Of these reported bites, only one to two cases per year result in death of the patient. Although complications such as possible blood clotting problems, allergic reactions to treatment, infection and shock may develop, the majority of rattlesnake bites are successfully treated with as little as two to three days of hospitalization.
