Solutions Farms honored with SD Housing Federation Ruby Award By Promise Yee

VISTA — Off of a weathered farming road Solutions Farms is marked by a metal arch. Beyond the front gate two acres of greenhouses hold an active aquapontics farm that provides fresh lettuces to city schools. Operating the aquaponics farm are formerly homeless individuals who are on the road to turning their lives around. Solutions Farms is a hands on job-training program offered through Solutions for Change. Solutions Farms manager Jennifer Pankey was recently honored with the San Diego Housing Federation Ruby Award for outstanding service to residents. Pankey is a shining success story of someone who has benefited from Solutions for Change, and gone on to give back to others. About five years ago she found herself homeless with two daughters to support. Pankey said she had no job, no home, no money, and little education. She went through the 1,000 day Solutions University transformational housing model program and made some significant changes. She landed a job in the organization, secured low income housing assistance, and was able to provide permanent housing and a secure life for her family. Two years later the Solutions Farms program began, and Pankey was recruited as the program manager. She admits the idea of using an aquaponics farm for job training sounded a bit crazy at first. Once operations began she saw that the program gives participants

hard and soft skills they can apply to any job. Through the program aquaponic operations, marketing skills, and leadership is learned. “I’m amazed how much someone can transform when someone believes in them and trusts them,” Pankey said. “It’s a leadership development program. They come out, when they’re done with the program, and have a sense of worth.” The opportunity to work around

plants also provides a nurturing environment. Pankey said as participants help plants grow, they also see themselves grow. “I never had anyone come out and say this is not for me,” Pankey said. “For six months they dedicate themselves to being there every day.” “There’s an incredible value to planting a seed, and watching it grow from seed to harvest.

Country Club is topic of Town Hall By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — Mayor Sam Abed held his ninth town hall meeting May 14 and the majority of residents voiced their concerns regarding the Escondido Country Club. Abed said the city has the same interests as the nearby residents. He said Country Club developer Michael Schlesinger’s past actions were unacceptable. “When I met with him a couple of weeks ago, I said ‘Mike, there is a problem,’ he said ‘what’s the problem,’ I said, ‘Mike, you are the problem,’” Abed said. The city recently lost a court ruling after Schlesinger pursued legal recourse for what he considered to be an illegal taking of his property after the city declared the golf course permanent open space. The council will met in closed session May 20 to discuss the legal options on whether to appeal, or accept the ruling. According to the City Attorney Jeffrey Epp, the city could decide to “sit tight,” and not do anything yet, or could decide to appeal the decision. Abed said an announcement would be made after the closed session but it was unavailable by press time. Epp said thus far, the city has done a good job of keeping their options open. After meeting with the homeowners surrounding the Country Club, Abed said the majority of people want to see some

kind of solution. Abed said even if the city won an appeal, Schlesinger would likely appeal to federal court, drawing the process out even longer. One solution the mayor sees is having Schlesinger sell the property to a different developer that works with the community. “The country club is an old community that needs revitalization,” said Abed. “To move forward with the process he needs to be out of it.” Dick Daniels, a representative for Schlesinger said there are no plans to sell the property. Most recently, Schlesinger submitted plans to build 270 homes on the 109.3-acre site. Daniels said Schlesinger is in the process of interviewing homebuilders for the project. Mayor Abed stressed the importance of a compromise, saying that 300 homes isn’t realistic for the property and neither is having it all open space. “I think both are not a good solution. We can come up with a solution that provides amenities, open space and provides a good project that benefits the community,” Abed said. Even though the project is far from receiving approval, some residents argued that it’s hypocritical to ask residents to cut down on water use while allowing more development. Abed said that according to state law, the city TURN TO TOWN HALL ON 9

T&H Meats changes hands, keeps same award-winning quality By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — Patrons of T&H Meats, a venerable meat shop in San Marcos, might have noticed something different over the past few months. It wasn’t the signature sausages and the cuts of prime steak that have made the butcher shop a mainstay for nearly 30 years. And for the most part, it wasn’t the faces of the employees, such as longtime butcher Armando Gonzalez, who has been cutting meats and filling sausage cases for going on 37 years. But the change was noticeable — longtime owner and “sausage meister” Jacob Kappeler is gone, as T&H is under new ownership. In his place, Dave Krohn, a local caterer and restaurant owner and longtime customer of T&H Meats, purchased the storefront located across the street from Mission Hills High School, as well as Kappeler’s secret recipes that have kept repeat customers coming back for years. Krohn, a retired Marine who opened up his catering business, Chef DK Catering, 10 years ago after leaving the Marine Corps, said he started shopping at T&H three years ago on a friend’s recommendation. Soon, T&H meats was the meat of choice at his business, which also includes operat-

ing the Artisan Cafe, a seasonal restaurant that operates at the Moonlight Amphitheater in Vista. Krohn said the meat shop had several things going for it that made it an easy decision to purchase it.

“When I found out it was for sale, I jumped at the chance,” Krohn said. “I think it is a combination of a few things. First, it has a great reputation for putting out a great, quality product. Second, it has a loyal following, and not just locally. People come down

from Los Angeles, from Riverside County, from way out in Imperial County, just hundreds of miles, to pick up coolers full of steaks and sausages.” Krohn also cited the shop’s custom processing - patrons can bring in livestock from local fairs

or animals during hunting season and the butchers will process the meet into steaks, sausages, smoked meat, jerky or any cut of meat. Krohn said he didn’t want to change what had been working for Kappeler — who owned the store for nearly 30 years after a career as a farmer in Imperial Valley after emigrating from Switzerland in the 1960s. This included the employees. “Before I made the purchase, I met with all of the employees, and I asked them all the stay on, and they all said they would love to keep working here,” he said. “Very little has changed except for the ownership.” There have been a few minor changes. Krohn said he has done some minor renovations, including a new roof and refrigeration units and electrical upgrades. Also, Krohn said, they have started purchasing beef that is certified Angus, a subtle upgrade that Krohn said will result in a higher quality steak. The other change, Krohn said, is that he has started to expand the store’s wholesale business, snagging several high-profile new clients, including the Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara in Carlsbad, The Crosby TURN TO T&H ON 18

Escondido police aim to improve one neighborhood at a time By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO—Escondido Police Sergeant Jeff Valdivia was struggling with the eternal question, what came first, the chicken or the egg? In his case, he was trying to understand whether a rundown neighborhood was creating crime or if crime was creating a rundown neighborhood. Then he realized it didn’t matter. “That’s more of a question for academics and as a

Presents the

police officer, we should be concerned with solving the problem,” Valdivia said. Out of this dilemma came the Neighborhood Transformation Project. The Escondido Police Department is partnering with the Public Works Department, local faith-based organizations, and business and residential groups to create safer neighborhoods and enhance the quality of life throughout the city. Each year, the department will choose a portion

of Escondido to focus its efforts towards based on crime statistics. They’re first targeting areas with high numbers of aggravated assault, robbery and auto thefts. The program rearranges the way officers spend their time. Officers are personally responsible for patrolling a specific area within the larger designated neighborhood, like an apartment complex, to increase police presence and reduce crime. The collaboration aspect is extremely important. The Public Works Department is working to increase lighting, cut trees and improve sidewalks to improve safety. Overgrown trees make it tougher for people to see, especially at night. “A lot of the public works demonstrates to the community that we’re serious about environmental

change and the city is willing to make that investment,” Valdivia said. The city’s Neighborhood Services staff is also working with the Police Department to address residential code violations in the specified neighborhood. “When everyone starts taking care of their proper-

ty, it does send a message to the rest of the neighborhood that people are paying attention, that crime and disorder are not tolerated and that people take pride in their neighborhood,” said Valdivia. The pilot program launched to improve 55 blocks around South Escon-

dido Boulevard in January 2014. Valdivia said they learned that the first area they chose was too large. “We figured out pretty quickly that it was just too much to tackle at one time,” said Valdivia. Starting this January, they began working on 16 blocks between East Grand Avenue and East Valley Parkway with a western border of Harding Street and an eastern border of North Midway Drive. On May 9, the police department held a community cleanup event. Dumpsters were provided at no cost to the residents to get rid of large unwanted items, including refrigerators, mattresses and trashed furniture. “We filled up three of these huge dumpsters,” said Valdivia. Nearly 100 residents signed a letter of interest to participate in a monthly residential group that discusses problems in the neighborhood. An East Valley ParkTURN TO TRANSFORMATION ON 18

Transitional housing for young adults in foster care recognized By Promise Yee

VISTA — North County Lifeline is set to open its second LifeSpring transitional housing facility for young adults who have exited foster care and need a hand up. The San Diego Housing Federation recognized North County Lifeline in late April for partnering with Community HousingWorks to provide housing and support services at the soon-to-open North Santa Fe Apartments. Donald Stump, North County Lifeline executive

director, said the city of Vista was also instrumental in establishing the apartment complex that will house transitional young adults and other low-income residents. The city donated the land where the apartments are being built from the ground up, and earmarked Community Development Block Grant funds for the housing. The apartments are near completion and will be open in July. Ten units scattered throughout the 68-unit complex will house transitional young adults.

Across the street from the apartments is North County Lifeline’s first transitional housing facility for foster care young adults. LifeSpring house is a five-bedroom home that opened two years ago. Two residents are ready to graduate from the program and live independently. Social services refers young adults to the LifeSpring program, which assists those ages 18 to 24. The program supports young adults with a case manager to teach participants life skills; a resident

advisor to serve as a mentor; and a counselor to help them through the challenges of young adulthood. Stump said a lot has been learned from running the first housing facility, chiefly that the men in the program would prefer their own apartments. Stump said most try living on their own, but find they cannot make it with limited education and lack of experience and guidance. He added without a parent from birth to encourage them and help

them make wise choices, it takes a lot of work to get these young adults back on track. Statistics posted on the North County Lifeline website state that after aging out of foster care, 51 percent of young adults are unemployed, 40 percent are homeless and 20 percent are imprisoned. “Many are so tired of being controlled and being a ward they try to make it on their own, but they don’t have a support system,” Stump said. “They don’t realize the county social

worker is their support system. “In North County, we’re getting closer and closer to meeting the needs.” North County Lifeline will continue to provide support for young adults at both housing facilities. The apartment units will also allow young women to be housed and supported. Stump said countywide there remains a shortage of transitional housing for the 200 young adults per year who transition out of the foster care system.

Carlsbad Strawberry fields mall moves forward By Ellen Wright

CARLSBAD — Strawberry fields forever… The Beatles tune is becoming a Carlsbad reality after Los Angeles-based developer Rick Caruso announced his plans for the 200 acres south of Agua Hedionda Lagoon. In 2006 voters passed Proposition D, which set aside about 300 acres along Cannon Road as permanent open space. About 50 of the acres where the Strawberry fields are currently located were not included in the proposition because the city wanted to avoid legal fallout of determining it permanent open space and the parcel served as a compromise to preserve the rest of the site. On May 12, Caruso said he hopes to develop half of the approved 50 acres into a destination style shopping center and introduced the “Agua Hedionda 85/15 Plan,” in which 176 acres will be preserved as permanent open space and 26 acres will house a shopping center. Of those 176 acres, 155 acres of the open space will be permanently dedicated to and managed by qualified environmentally focused non-profits, public agencies and agricultural interests. “We will be developing only about 26 of those acres, so actually under our proposal, there will be more open space dedicated to the public,” Caruso said. After spending three years meeting with more than 4,000 residents, Caruso and his team developed the plan. “What we’ve learned is (residents) want open space and they want open space done the right way,” Caruso said. The Caruso team sent out mailers to residents, held public workshops and bused people to Caruso’s other center in LA, The Grove, where residents highlighted what they thought would and

wouldn’t work for Carlsbad. The Americana in LA is another Caruso Affiliated project. Caruso said he had been looking to develop in North County for 15 years and finally found the right opportunity with the strawberry fields location, which has yet to be named. “There’s nothing like it in San Diego County,” Caruso said. President of the Carlsbad Strawberry Company, Jimmy Ukegawa, former Chairman of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce Carlton Lund and Chairwoman of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Maureen Simmons all voiced their approval. “The 85/15 Plan protects the lagoon at no cost to the taxpayers by using innovation, infiltration and an environmentally friendly design to safeguard the watershed,” said Simmons. If the plan passes, the revenue from the shopping center will go towards making the open space accessible with nature trails, park benches, picnic areas, an educational resource area and an amphitheater. Ukegawa said the plan makes strawberry farming sustainable and economically viable. The next step is to gather support signatures and bring them to City Council, where councilmembers can either approve the plan, or put it on the ballot for voters to decide. If council does approve it, construction can begin six months later. Caruso hopes the shopping center will be open by 2018. In order to build the shopping center, the open space access upgrades would need to be built first. “That’s also why we think the initiative process is so important because it will be built into TURN TO STRAWBERRY ON 18

State lays groundwork for more desal plants By Ellen Wright

CARLSBAD — The largest water desalination plant in the western hemisphere is set to open this fall and will supply 7 percent of the San Diego region’s water supply. The $1 billion Carlsbad Desalination Plant developed by Poseidon Resources is the largest and newest to open, and will be the last project to have been approved on a regional case-by-case basis, after new state regulations were passed, laying the groundwork for more desalination plants. On May 5, the State Water Resources Control Board approved an amendment to the state’s Water Quality Control Plan to address effects from the construction and operation of desalination plants. The amendment provides uniform regulations for regional water boards looking to permit water desalination plants. The amendment process started in 2007, and state water board staff have been meeting with the public, stakeholders and experts on desalination. State water officials see water desalination plants as a tool to provide a secure and drought proof water source. “Desalination is one of several tools communities can use in appropriate circumstances to gain greater water security,” said State Water Board Chair Felicia Marcus. “This amendment will provide a consistent framework for communities and industry as they consider desalination, while protecting the coastal marine environment.” Members from local and state environmental watchdog groups as San Diego Coastkeeper, a part of the California Coastkeeper Alliance, view the desalination plants as costly, en-

ergy intensive and devastating to marine life. “The Desalination Policy adopted creates a framework for local entities to consider and mitigate facility impacts to the ocean, but aside from environmental impacts, desalination is almost always the most costly and energy-intensive source of water,” said California Coastkeeper Alliance’s Executive Director Sara Aminzadeh. For every two gallons of ocean water a desalination plant takes in, it creates one gallon of drinkable water and one gallon of water with twice the amount of salt through reverse osmosis. The reverse osmosis pushes water through tiny filters, using pressure to remove the salt and other minerals. Microscopic marine life, like larvae and plankton can be harmed in the process. Larger marine life can also get trapped and killed in the intake pipes. One method, subsurface intake, prevents the death of fish, by installing pipes under the seafloor. The Carlsbad desalination plant will not use subsurface intake pipes because it will take over the Encina Power Station’s existing pipe system. In its early years of operation, the plant will use the Encina Power Station’s discharged water, which is used to cool the 60-year-old power station The pipes receive and dispel water through the Agua Hedionda Lagoon. Once the Encina Power Station goes offline in 2017 Poseidon will purchase the intake and outtake pipes and retrofit them with screens for filtration. Poseidon is required to restore 66 acres of wetlands elsewhere, to replace the habitat lost from the intake of larvae.

Vice President of Project Development at Poseidon Scott Maloni said they’ve chosen a location in south San Diego Bay and are going through the permitting process now. He said nothing would change at the Agua Hedionda lagoon, because the Encina Power Station has been the steward of the lagoon since the ‘50s, in order to keep a constant flow of water. “If it wasn’t for the power plant’s maintenance of the lagoon, it would all shrivel up and go to its natural historic state,” said Maloni. “We’ll become the stewards of the lagoon and keep it functioning as it is today.” Another issue raised by environmental groups includes the production of residual brine, or leftover salt. When it is not properly diluted, it can settle on the ocean floor and create an oxygen deficiency. Methods to combat the residual brine include mixing it with municipal wastewater or disposing it through diffusers that rapidly mix and dilute the brine. The Carlsbad plant will mix the brine with additional seawater for dilution. The state amendment that was approved regulates that new or expanded seawater desalination plants must use the best available design, technology and mitigation measures possible for the site. Poseidon is also developing a desalination plant in Huntington Beach that mirrors the Carlsbad Plant in linking up with an existing power station. Several other desalination plants are also being considered for the California coastline, including along Camp Pendleton, Dana Point, El Segundo, Oceano, Cambria, Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz, and Moss Landing.

Vaccination risks: Knowledge is power By Dr. S.E. Rogers

Kudos to Stephanie Dumont for her insightful article on political, ethical and financial concerns regarding the proposed SB 277. The cost of insuring against vaccine injuries will be passed along to the school districts, who can ill afford it. The previous article written by Thomas Elias did little more than propagandize for the pro-vaccination lobby. For example, the measles outbreak that occurred in the Del Mar Union school district last year involved a majority of vaccinated students. It would seem that these vaccinations carry a definite risk, with a decidedly indefinite promise of immunity. Last week two babies died and 14 more were hospitalized in a small Mexican village after being vaccinated. A personal report to the author indicated that the death toll was actually seven. An internal memo from the manufacturer did not require a recall of “hot lots” but rather an order to break up these lots of vials so that one population would not suffer an unusually high rate of adverse reactions. Folks, these are pharmaceutical corporations you are entrusting with your child’s health. They are not exactly public service organizations and the revolving door between the FDA, the CDC, and private industry in paved with gold. The wolf is guarding the chicken coop: are your chickens safe? The self-righteous senator who introduced the bill has benefited from this highly profitable relationship. The bottom line is innocent children are now dead and damaged. Do you want yours to be next? If you are worried about your susceptible in-

fants being exposed to the unvaccinated, you live in the wrong place. We have open borders. Tuberculosis is everywhere. If the government’s concern were your child’s public health, this would not be the case. SB277 means the government owns your child, it’s that simple. That was last the case during the era of slavery. Get ready for more of the same. Federally mandated vaccinations is coming for everyone, and soon. Don’t you find it strange that so many states

It would seem that these vaccinations carry a definite risk... are submitting similar compulsory vaccinations bills at the same time? The CDC is pulling the strings and their agenda is largely unknown. Unless you trust that every vaccination is contaminant free, has only the ingredients listed, and that all those factors (viral DNA fragments, fetal cell lines, trace metals) are completely safe, you had better think twice about injecting them into your body or forcing someone else to do so. This event in Mexico was very timely in provoking us to consider the wisdom of forced, government-mandated vaccinations. Of course these “statistics” won’t count according to the CDC because the adverse events did not occur in the U.S. Sadly, most adverse reactions to vaccinations in the U.S. are not reported, in part because of the stringent time reporting requirements. A baby that dies over two weeks later, or shows signs of autism a month later is simply not a significant statistic. Scientifically it is difficult to prove a negative,

yet the CDC adheres to the mantra that “it couldn’t be the vaccines.” One of the main studies used to back up that claim was the Danish study. The chief investigator, Poul Thorsen was indicted for financial fraud for embezzling the funds meant to conduct the study. Yet he was not changed with scientific fraud. The CDC did not re-evaluate their conclusions that MMR does not cause autism. How strange. Do you find it even more odd that Dr. Wakefield was charged with scientific fraud for a smallscale study that thousands of mothers of autistic children will confirm is accurate? You must do your own due diligence to discover the truth. Wouldn’t it make sense to refrain from any further submission to vaccination until you are completely certain that it is safe and effective? As Ms. Dumont pointed out, “safe” only means the number of kids that were killed or damaged is at an acceptable level of collateral damage and statistics were appropriately skewed. “Effective” means produces an antibody titer, not protection from any particular disease. Why else would an increasing schedule of booster be required? I would be happy to provide an extensive scientific bibliography of references to anyone who wants to do their due diligence in this matter. I performed several years of research at a major medical school working under world class mentors that were nominated for the Nobel Prize in 2013. My graduate degree is in the field of microbiology and immunology. You may contact me: vaccinerisk@gmail.com Dr. S.E. Rogers has a master’s of science in microbiology and immunology.

For most of that time, I have maintained a practice in one of several North County cities, including Del Mar, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Oceanside and most recently Carlsbad.

I agree that we need more community development and I contrast my services with the likes of Costco and Walmart on a daily basis. I also agree that we need to care more about our community but I interact with local leaders who already express a great deal of pride in our town. I believe that this will lead to the “stable local economy, stronger social development and the preservation of our local environment” that you so sincerely desire. However, ALL businesses need to make a profit so that they can continue to serve the community and put some of those profits back into the local coffers. I feel that I’m doing my part — even if I have to start serving coffee with every eye exam! Jeff Anshel, OD, FAAO is an Encinitas resident and owner of E Street Eyes.

Now is the time to trench the tracks through Encinitas By Doug Fiske

The Don Breazeale and Associates study commissioned and shelved by the city of Encinitas in 2000 gives $152 million (2014 dollars) as the added cost of trenching the tracks through the city when they are doubled. That includes four ped/bike/vehicular crossings and eight ped/ bike crossings in the 5.1 miles between the north side of the San Elijo Lagoon and the south side of the Batiquitos Lagoon. Oddly, the study did not address Encinitas Boulevard. The rails and road there would essentially have to trade places. In 2014 dollars, the Lomas

Santa Fe crossing in Solana Beach cost $23.4 million. Add that to Breazeale’s figure, and you have $175.4 million as a reasonably accurate estimate of trenching’s inclusive cost through our city. Funding would come by reallocating part of the $6.5 billion SANDAG and CalTrans say they will spend in the North Coast transportation corridor between now and 2040. The Carlsbad City Council recently voted to spend up to $250,000 for an economic study that will compare trenching with not trenching doubled tracks between the south side of the Buena

Vista Lagoon and the north side of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon. That distance includes their downtown area and three current atgrade crossings. They contend that trenching when doubling would increase the appeal of their corridor, thereby increasing sales, property and transient occupancy tax revenues, while not trenching would have the opposite effect. Further, Carlsbad says trenching when doubling would eventually pay for itself and then perpetuate increased tax revenues. SANDAG has allotted TURN TO COMMENTARY ON 18

Vista High School farming student awarded $5,000 Don Diego scholarship By Promise Yee

VISTA — There is an optimistic glow that comes from Vista High School senior Amy Wehner as she makes her around in her wheelchair. A crack in the sidewalk could spell a fall, but she doesn’t let physical obstacles or other challenges stop her. “She’s one of the most optimist people you’ll meet in your life,” her mother Chris Wehner said. Amy’s positive attitude and hard work recently earned her the $5,000 Don Diego scholarship in the Future Farmers of America (FFA) category. The Don Diego Scholarship Foundation grants 14 scholarships a year through an application and interview process. Amy cemented her love for animals when she enrolled in Vista High School FFA classes. Through the program she has raised rabbits, and raised and breed lambs. “I’ve always really

Getting through the gravel use to take her 15 minutes. A paved ramp has now been put in place. Amy said she is use to figuring out ways to get around things. Another barnyard obstacle she overcame was working with larger animals from the height of her wheelchair.

Inside the nature center another dozen kids sat side by side on the carpet as an Eco-Vivarium animal handler stretched a tenfoot Burmese python across their laps. The insect hike and snake encounter were two of a dozen activities to connect kids and families to nature during Endangered Species Day at the nature center. The Buena Vista Audubon Society has celebrated the annual awareness day for three years. There are about 60 local endangered species in San Diego County. Diane Nygaard, founder of Preserve Calavera nature restoration and advocacy group, said it is importance to raise awareness about endangered species because animals and plants are in danger of extinction due to loss of habitat caused by man. The national awareness day reminds people to think about what they can do to lessen man’s effect on nature. The annual event raises awareness with hands-on fun. Kids were able to hold a desert tortoise, compare their footprint to a black bear’s, and weave a basket. Natalie Shapiro, Buena Vista Audubon Society volunteer, said you never know which activity will spark kids’ interest in nature. She said some recent visitors were fascinated by scooping up a bucket of water from the lagoon and observing what was in it. “They spent hours looking at little bugs, that feed

Hobby Lobby, DMV progressing in San Marcos By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — A new Department of Motor Vehicles office in San Marcos, which was originally scheduled to open this month, is now slated for a late summer opening, San Marcos officials said this week. The shell of the DMV building, which is under construction on Rancheros Drive betwen Twin Oaks Valley Blvd and Woodland Parkway, has taken shape over the past few months. The delay is the result of belated state approvals needed to complete some off-site traffic improvements, city spokeswoman Sarah MacDonald said. “We’re making good progress on the building,” MacDonald said. The 29,500-square-foot DMV office will replace a temporary site on Descanso Avenue in San Marcos, which replaced a field office in Escondido that closed in 2013. The city is using more

than $11 million in reserves to finance construction of the building. A Hobby Lobby that is under construction at the site of the former Lowe’s in the Creekside Marketplace is also on pace to be completed around the same time as the DMV, MacDonald said. The Hobby Lobby will occupy about 60,000 square feet of the former Lowe’s space: A WinCo grocery story, which will occupy the other 91,000 square feet, is on schedule for completion in the late fall. The city used a unique financing method to pay for the construction of the trio of projects, dipping into its reserves and paying back the money with rental revenues from the tenants. A delay in the opening of the DMV will mean the city won’t get about a month’s worth of lease revenue this fiscal year, but it won’t impact the city’s budget outlook long term, officials said.

Neighborhood group voices concerns over project By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — In an effort to raise awareness to the Rancho Santa Fe Association and its fellow members, Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation, a group of residents opposed to a potential high-density housing development, offered a presentation at the May 7 Association board meeting. The group voiced concern over Rancho Librado, a potential high-density residential project that would see new housing built next to Chino Farms. The four-parcel, 28acre property located at the intersection of Via de la Valle and Calzada Del Bosque is currently zoned as semi-rural 2c, also referred to as SR-2. The San Diego County General Plan 2020 mandates one housing unit per 2, 4, or 8 acres. Saiid Zarrabian spoke on behalf of the Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation. He told everyone that Rancho Librado has been worrisome to residents in San Dieguito River Valley. Currently, this area and its surrounding neighborhood have homes sitting on 3 to 20 acres. Zarrabian wanted members to know that the proposed applicant may want to try and amend this zoning in order to construct 54 homes and possible clubhouse. Current zoning, however, allows for a fraction of this. “It’s a high-density change that is out of character with the area and with the zoning. And it’s a zoning change that could set a dangerous precedence,” he said. Zarrabian’s speech with slide presentation

triggered a unanimous vote among the directors of the Rancho Santa Fe Association. The directors voted 7-0 to uphold the General Plan zoning as well as the decision to craft a letter to the County of San Diego Planning Department, indicating their support in upholding the rural zoning for this area. Presented at the board meeting were 450 signatures, which were collected over the duration of a few days from those that opposed the high-density project. More than 350 were Covenant member signatures while the others were non-members. Rancho Librado, Zarrabian said, is an important issue for everybody because it’s not just a Covenant issue. “I would appreciate

that it’s not perceived as just Rancho Santa Fe Covenant members,” Zarrabian said. “There is Whispering Palms, Fairbanks Ranch, and all of Rancho Santa Fe. They are all involved, will be impacted by the traffic on this, and will eventually impact every San Dieguito River Valley member.” Zarrabian also refreshed the minds of members about the history of this property and previous desires to develop it. Following the meeting, another member of the Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation, David Allred, said one of their major concerns was that they did not want the Association to be blindsided by any developers. “It was important that the Association and board know and understand this, so they can take control of

this discussion and our destiny,” said Allred. Allred went on to say that Lillian Rice’s vision of the Ranch was to have high-density in the heart of the Village. But as one traveled away from the center circle, lot sizes would expand. “That was the vision that Lillian Rice had and it’s that vision which has made the Rancho Santa Fe Community known worldwide as one of the best places,” he said. As for the Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation, the potential of a high-density residential development in this area goes against these core beliefs and longterm vision. The group’s petition is available online at neighborsforsandieguito rivervalley.org

Vallecitos Water District to begin water waste patrols SAN MARCOS — Faced with mounting statewide water conservation mandates, the Vallecitos Water District will be stepping up public education and enforcement of their drought ordinance

by implementing water waste patrols. The district is required to achieve a 24-percent reduction in use starting June 1. Patrols began on May 11 throughout Vallecitos’ service area. District

employees will be on duty in the pre-dawn hours as well as during the day. Staff will be in marked Vallecitos Water District vehicles and will carry district identification. Staff will be on the lookout for drought ordinance violations such as: — overspray and runoff into gutters — watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. — watering during and 48 hours after a rain event — hosing down hard

surfaces like driveways. The district has already been responding to water waste reports from residents provided by phone, e-mail and via the district’s Web site. The district’s General Manager Dennis O. Lamb said, “The goal of these patrols is not to penalize customers, but to remind them about watering restrictions and the importance of saving water. We want to help our customers do the right thing and will provide resources and tools that can assist them.”

SAVANNAH LANG Digital Media Manager

First time violators will receive a warning and will be prescribed corrective measures. The district will work with these customers to educate them about the drought and the associated water use restrictions. Continued violations may result in fines. Drought patrols will help the district achieve water conservation targets. The state of California requires water suppliers to report on water use, reduction amounts and enforcement measures. Vallecitos Water District includes San Marcos; the community of Lake San Marcos; portions of Carlsbad, Escondido and Vista; and other surrounding unincorporated areas.

RSF Association agrees on traffic signals By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Following an April Town Hall Meeting at the Garden Club, the RSF Association board of directors voted to install traffic signals rather than roundabouts on May 7. The Town Hall meeting helped the board make their decision, since members discussed roundabouts or traffic signals options for three proposed intersections along the Paseo Delicias/Del Dios corridors. Association Manager Bill Overton said during the Town Hall meeting that members expressed both pros and cons about traffic signals and roundabouts. An unofficial straw poll at the conclusion of the gathering revealed 120 in favor of traffic signals, 11 in favor

of roundabouts and 37 who wanted to do nothing. “Something needs to be done with traffic control for the community based on complaints and the rising number of cars passing through Rancho Santa Fe,” said Overton, adding that he was advised a 2013 meeting revealed around the same percentages. Overton advised the board that staff thought it was time to make a vote. “Staff’s recommendation is for the board to direct staff to write to the county that we prefer signals as a community,” he said. While one member in the audience thought there should be more to learn about the two options, director Heather Slosar shared her views.

“The good news is that we’ve been elected by the community to represent what’s in the best interest of the community,” she said, adding how they received input from members in as many ways as possible. “We do respect the community and the desires of the community.” Director Jerry Yahr said the community has had a chance to come out and speak out regarding this issue. A traffic control committee was also in place for many years. “I feel that we have adequate information in terms of the community to make a vote,” he said. Director Philip Wilkinson admitted he is a big supporter of rural characteris-

tics and roundabouts. He thought the roundabouts were far superior to the traffic signals. However, due to the sense of urgency, he said traffic signals would be a better decision at this time. Director Rochelle Putnam believed if traffic signals were voted on, which they were, that the Association remains involved through the progression. “I think it’s really critical to stay engaged with the process and work with the county to mitigate our concerns about lighting, the aesthetics and safety, so that we can make sure that not only our community members, but the people who pass through here and come to work here every day are well served,” she said.

ay Gray notwithstanding, summer is on its way and as good an excuse as any to make some mental notes on what you might like to read as you settle back in that beach chair. I thought my recent choices were random, but they turn out to be mostly historical fiction with strong women as the main characters. I did throw some diverting mysteries in between. A favorite was “Still Life: a Chief Inspector Gamache Novel” set in Quebec. It was unusual and introduced me to that region of Canada and its history. “The Moonlight Palace” by Liz Rosenberg, is narrated by a descendant of the last sultan of Singapore. She has grown up in a crumbling palace in 1920s Singapore when developers wanted to build over rather than restore the old city. I loved the glimpse into a colorful time and place in history I had not encountered before. For a solid look at how far we have come and what women were subjected to for centuries, I loved “The Towers of Tuscany” by Carol M. Cram. It is the story of the talented daughter of an accomplished artist in medieval Italy. Women were not allowed to apprentice or paint, in the all-male domain of the painter's workshop. I loved cheering her on as she risks finding her own way around the bonds of the era. “Guests on Earth,” by Lee Smith, revolves loosely around the death of Zelda Fitzgerald but is an unexpected whirlwind of characters and settings, following a piano prodigy who grows up in a mental

facility in 1936. “Twelfth Child” by Bette Le Crosby, indulged my love of Southern fiction. I winced a bit when I later found this book was referred to as a “Serendipity Series” novel, which sounds pretty treacly. It is, however, an uplifting telling of a woman at the end of her years, finally free from her miserable family, and the unlikely friendship she builds with the young woman next door. It is set in the Shenandoah Valley during and after America’s Great Depression. Again, you cheer for the heroines. “Sarah’s Valley,” by Sharon Mierke, is an adventure and historical fiction following a young girl and her brother, whose parents die on the way to California in the early 1800s. The story of how they made their separate ways is filled with interesting twists and turns. “The Long Way Home” by Karen McQuestion, is a fun “chick” book for which I make no apology. The lively read has unusual but endearing characters and just a pinch of supernatural. Four women come together to help one another make the most of their lives, in a way that will make perfect sense to anyone who has ever leaned on, what I like to call, the “Good Ol’ Girl’s Network.” Readers, grab your bookmarks.

For the love of Artichokes Encinitas Rotary wine event benefits 19 charities

T

his is the time of year that the biggest and best artichokes make their way to area markets from the Castroville area of California. Ocean Mist Farms is headquartered there domi the nates artichoke market in the U.S. I had the pleasure of doing some marketing work for them a few years back and since the name of my agency is Artichoke Creative, it was pretty much marketing heaven and the several trips I made up to Castroville rank among the best business trips I’ve been on. While Ocean Mist grows many types of vegetables, it’s their artichokes they are known for and there are areas around Castroville where artichoke fields stretch as far as the eye can see. It’s quite a site and it inspired me to try my hand at growing them several times in Leucadia, with much suc-

cess one year. I was not really planning on growing them but was in Armstrong Garden Center one day and they had artichoke starter plants about 10-inch in height. It was January when I purchased enough plants to fill my 10-foot-by-30-foot garden on the side of my house and they seemed to thrive on the coastal climate. I watered them liberally and they shot up and started producing nice meaty, medium sized artichokes in early May. When I say meaty, that translates

into the nugget of edible goodness on the end of each leave was much larger than a typical artichoke. I had about 15 plants and all of them were producing three to five artichokes each so for about a month we had fresh artichokes off the plant about every other day. Needless to day, with this bountiful harvest I ended up getting very creative in my preparation and to this day, one recipe still stands out as one that I will never tire of and a sure TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 18

ecently, I observed that the wine consumer was getting washed with wine shows. This was not meant to be a complaint. Wine shows give the visitor an opportunity to sample some superior wines, upwards of 200 choices, along with food pairings, for one nominal admission fee. The realization that big wine shows equal big profits has resonated, especially in Southern California where most days are perfect for outdoor events. There is one wine/food event I want you to keep your eyes and palates on: the Encinitas Rotary and its Wine and Food Festival. Set for June 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the pristine San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, this event has quickly won the support of the public, like no other of its size. Guests will taste from over 20 wineries, breweries and other beverages. Area restaurants are pitching in with their best menu offerings and all will be serenaded by live music while they bid up auction items. All this makes for a pleasant wine event like most others, however Rich and Sandy Houk, co-chairs of the Encinitas Rotary, want you to know that 19 charities benefit from your attendance at this event. “Last year was the seventh year of a sellout,” Rich declared. “Our festival raised over $120,000 for both children’s and community charities. It was a team effort with all 90 Rotary members volunteering to make it a suc-

The beneficiary charities need to attend all our meetings and they agree to sell a designated number of tickets. They also help with raffle items to raise additional dollars. It’s a total team effort,” said Rich. The wines offered are a great fit. Most are from the Southern California region. Be sure to pay special attention to a favorite of mine this year, the Coomber Family Ranch wines. Skip Coomber has made a high-end style of wine, with Pinor Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines compete with any I’ve tasted.

San Dieguito grad reflects on Cooper Union & more By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Five years ago when Dustin Atlas was set to graduate from San Dieguito High School Academy, the school foundation was fundraising for its yet-to-be-completed performing arts center. The description of the new center intrigued him. "It was described as a new theater that could be rearranged for different types of seating and events,” said Atlas, who graduated from SDA in 2010. "In a lot of ways, that idea stuck with me, the idea that a theater could be manipulated by actors and the audience. It was influential with this thesis." "This thesis" Atlas referred to was his final project at The Cooper Union's prestigious Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, one of the nation's top architecture schools, from which Atlas is set to graduate this month with his Bachelor's of Architecture, a five-year program at Cooper. For Atlas' thesis, he took a turn reinventing the concept of a performing arts center, taking inspiration from New York's fire escapes to create a performing arts center where the seating is suspended from surrounding buildings, much like the ubiquitous metal staircases that populate New York

Residents in The San Dieguito Water District, which serves Encinitas, average 110 gallons per capita per day. Other issues that came up at the meeting were youth’s access to drug and alcohol and traffic on El Norte Parkway. Abed said all city buildings are smoke free but the city can’t regulate what people do in their private homes. He also encouraged residents to tell the city which streets they have the most problems with because city staff is prioritizing traffic projects.

huge fire. News reports at the time described how hundreds of people gathered on nearby fire escapes to watch the fire, essentially inverting the theater experience. "The fire escape literally became the stage for the drama," Atlas said. "I wanted to commemorate that moment in time, as well as pay homage to fire escapes," which he said were necessary at the time because theaters were lit by candle, creating a major fire hazard. "I've always been fascinated by fire escapes in the city, because in California we don't have those," Atlas said. "You see them everywhere here, and they memorialize a specific time in the history of New York when they were needed and all added to the facade. In contemporary times some ignore them and don't consider them to be real architecture, but they are prevalent in the way we see the city." Atlas said despite his academic performance (he aced his thesis and classes) and love of architecture, he's likely not going to pursue architecture as a career. He will spend the next year teaching English in Israel before deciding on a career path. "I am very passionate about set design and the theater's relationship to ar-

chitecture, and I also love teaching," Atlas said. "I think there is a way to combine those passions, but I am not entirely sure that architecture with a capital "A" is the right pathway." Atlas continues to keep in touch with friends and family in Encinitas. When told about the Intrepid Theatre Company's proposal to build a performing arts center in the Encinitas Ranch Town Center, he offered his thoughts. "I think it is so important for the theater to be en-

gaged with the community and the city, and to have architecture that is open or welcoming that it invites people who maybe aren't inclined to going to the theater," Atlas said. "What I have discovered is that a city is a theater in itself, and that (the project) can remind us that we are all sort of connected to each other and the art, and through that we can connect our community, which is a powerful message that can be conveyed architecturally."

ENCINITAS — On June 6, the La Costa Canyon High School track will host the inaugural “Amanda Post Track Meet” for students in the third through sixth grades of the nine elementary schools in the Encinitas Union School District. “We’re hoping that it’s going to be something that takes off and be very popular,” said Greg Post, who is helping to organize the event through the Amanda Post Foundation, along with the LCC Foundation, the Encinitas Union School District and the Encinitas Education-

al Foundation. Post’s daughter Amanda, a track runner at Cathedral Catholic High School, was killed in a car accident in 2010. He said the reasons behind the track meet are twofold: The first as an extension of the school district’s fitness and wellness programs, and the second is to introduce elementary school children to the sport of track. The entry fee ($5 for one event; $10 for two or more events) for the track meet will go towards the production of the event, Post explained. It’s not a fundraiser

for any of the foundations. He added that any remaining proceeds remaining would go to the LCC Foundation and earmarked for LCC track. The track meet will include familiar heats as the 100 meter, 400 meter, 800 meter and 1600 meter and others. Registration for the track meet is open through May 29. The gates will open at 8:30 a.m. with races expected to begin at 9 a.m. Parents of students interested in participating can register online at PeachJar.com.

Preventing sports injuries for athletes of all ages Health Watch by the physicians and staff of Scripps Health

When he’s not caring for patients at Scripps Clinic in Del Mar, family practitioner and sports medicine specialist John Dawkins, M.D., can often be found surfing, hiking or running with his dog. The Rancho Penasquitos resident is also a fixture at the University of San Diego, where he volunteers at football, basketball and soccer games, providing medical expertise on the sidelines to help prevent serious injuries.

What can we do to make youth sports safer? First we have to make sure kids have the right equipment: helmets and chin straps that fit properly and mouth guards for contact sports. We must also ensure that athletes use good form, and this is true for both kids and adults. That’s why practice is so important. It gives us the opportunity, in a controlled environment, to learn how to play the game correctly. As a result, when we’re in the heat of competition, we have that muscle memory and can do things the right way. Also, there’s a tradition

that we should stretch out before a workout, practice or game, but that’s really a long-term strategy. Stretching doesn’t prevent same-day injuries. What we really need to do is warm up our bodies, getting those muscles loose before exertion. The stretching should come afterwards. When is an injury serious enough to skip a game or workout? There are a few things people can watch out for. If they have instability or swelling in joints, that’s something that should be evaluated before exercise. If they have so much pain they can’t main-

tain good form, that could lead to a secondary injury and should also be evaluated if it persists. As a sports medicine practitioner, I usually look for instability, fractures and significant tears that could worsen with further activity. I would also recommend that kids not go to practice if they have a fever. While it’s rare, a fever might indicate inflammation around the heart, which could lead to an arrhythmia. Concussion is an emerging problem in contact sports. We really want to avoid that second impact, especially with kids. If a player has had their “bell rung,” it’s probably best for them to sit out the rest of the game and be evaluated. After an injury, how should adults resume their workout regimens? This is a big issue for runners, who are pretty notorious for wanting to get back fast. But they shouldn’t go right back to the same high level of activity. It needs to be a gradual progression. I recommend starting at about 50 percent of distance and intensity and adding 10 percent a week. Generally, people should go a little bit slower and a little bit shorter and see how they feel the next day. Just because they’ve recovered from the initial injury doesn’t mean they are ready to go back to 100 percent effort. It’s just like when they first started. They probably didn’t go as hard as they could immediately. Doing too much too fast can cause further injury. “Health Watch” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps Health.

jay paris The colors of the baseball season are abounding. While some regions embrace the changing of the leaves, we get the switching of the hues by eyeing the local nine. Just look to the Padres for your clue. May Gray is here and a peek outside says so. But it says here the month known for gloom won’t include San Diego manager Bud Black getting his pink slip. Although 50 shades of gray might explain Black’s hair and you’ll see, too, the next time he doffs his cap. What’s shaking to make the dark roots scram? The Padres, guess what, still play like the Padres on occasion — Black’s locks prove it. You know that headscratchin’ bunch we’ve come to know and love — or curse. It can be maddeningly inconsistent on offense and — something new this year — the pitching is pedestrian. But this season wasn’t going to be a walk in the Petco Park no matter how much magic general manager A.J. Preller performed. Even with the Encinitas resident pulling rabbits from out of a hat during a hectic offseason, no whiz can make his squad go bagel — as in 162-0. So the Padres are right around .500 after 40 games. Not long ago, that mark would have Rancho Santa Fe’s Black worthy of manager of the year consideration. Instead, some fans are balking that Black’s ninth season isn’t one easy stroll to the playoffs. You do remember where the Padres hang, right? If any baseball boosters are cognizant about the pitfalls of locations — how much did you pay for that cramped condo? — it should be the Padres’ faithful. The Padres reside in the National League West and that ain’t the fixer-up-

per neighborhood. The Dodgers won the division last year and celebrated by adding $200 zillion to their payroll — we’re kidding — maybe. The Giants won three World Series in five years. Manager Bruce Bochy can only make a peace sign with available fingers minus jewelry. The Diamondbacks are scrappy. The Rockies, we give you, are something that rhymes with scrappy. It’s understandable Padres fans are frustrated as their patience ran out about two owners ago. But Black is the glue that has held this floundering squad’s head above water when the floods arrived. Now that sunshine and dry land surface, many want to send him packing. “That would be crazy,’’ Cubs skipper Joe Maddon said. “Pepe is the best!” Pepe? “We were coaching with the Angels and Pepe was telling me about once being the winning pitcher in the Caribbean League World Series,’’ Maddon added. “I said, ‘Man, the headline that day must have read: ‘Bud Negro wins the title.’’’ Black, who was on the 2002 Angels staff with Maddon that won the World Series, shook his head. “The translation of my name down there became ‘“Pepe Negro,’’’ Black said, keen that we’d been speaking to Maddon. Maddon, as usual, howled. “So we started calling him ‘Pepe’ and that is how the legend was born,’’ Maddon said. Maddon thinks the world of Black and that opinion carries the day around the major leagues. Chase Black away if you must, but look no further than Bochy of what happens when a good baseball man slips away. “Get rid of Pepe?’’ an incredulous Maddon said. “That wouldn’t be very smart.’’ In more colorful language, Maddon thought of Pepe being punked and basically said: “Don’t go there, amigo.” We agree. The Padres should retain their manager and that’s as plain as Black and white. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports.

Underdogs bring home top computer prize By Ray Huard

VISTA — A video game with a cow that shoots bubbles filled with cheese, milk and yogurt proved a winner for two Rancho Buena Vista seniors, whose team took the grand prize in a computer programming competition at California State University San Marcos. Yvette Moreno, 17, and Emily Sorger, 18, were part of the five-member team to place first in a recent CSU San Marcos San Diego Women’s Hackathon. Team members from outside the Vista Unified School District were Alyssa Carlos from Hillcrest High School, Joy Lopez Cervera from CSU San Marcos, and Joselyn Guzman from La Serra High School. Rancho Buena Vista robotics teacher Dadre Marie Rudolph, who encouraged Moreno and Sorger to enter the competition, said she was “very pleasantly surprised when Yvette and Emily took the grand prize. They were up against college teams and such. I was really, really impressed that they won.” They had to start from scratch on the morning of the competition, decide what to do, design and produce their video game — Calcium Crush — and present it to a panel of judges by the end of the day. “We were the underdogs, given that nobody really had any experience in making video games other than myself,” said Sorger, who plans to study computer science at CSU San Marcos in the fall then transfer to the University of California Davis. “I must say, our teamwork was outstanding and I think that really helped keep us motivated.” The Women’s Hackathon is designed to inspire women to consider computer-related and high tech careers, according to its Web site, sandiegohackathon.org. The event is open to young women 16 and older who are formed into teams of up to six members. Each team works collaboratively to design a website, game or mobile app to address a real-world challenge. Moreno and Sorger’s team chose a challenge posed by 4BoneHealth, a nonprofit organization that promotes healthy bones through education. The challenge was to build an app or game to help high school students increase their knowledge about calcium-rich foods and track their daily calcium intake. “The goal was to promote bone health, and since so many people have smart phones now, we figured that it was logical to create something fun, addicting and educational that a majority of people could access at their fingertips any time they wanted,” Sorger said. The target market for the game is middle school and high school students, Moreno said. With encouragement from 4BoneHealth, the team plans to continue refining their work, Moreno said. “We’re not completely done programming it yet because we have only one lev-

el,” she said. Moreno, who worked on creating the images in the game, was happily surprised that her team came out on top. “We don’t really know a lot about programming, so compared to everyone else, we were kind of the lowest team there,” said Moreno, who plans to major in nursing at CSU San Marcos. “We kind of didn’t expect to win.”

Moreno, Emily and their teacher, Rudolph, said the hackathon itself is important as a way to encourage more young women consider careers in video gaming and other high-tech fields. “We should see more female programmers,” Rudolph said. “We’re really encouraging girls to take robotics. This year, we have 35 to 40 percent girls.” Sorger said that young

women can feel intimidated, especially in video gaming, because the field has been dominated by men, but “Events like this encourage women and increase their confidence level because it shows them that they can be just as good as the men in the tech field.” Ray Huard is a communications consultant with the Vista Unified School District.

‘Tomorrowland’ is a destination worth traveling to By Nathalia Aryani

Is your future predestined? Amid prequels, sequels and remakes, “Tomorrowland” offers something intrinsically exciting — an original story. An uplifting story about a future that is not veiled under the gloom and doom of dystopian societies commonly portrayed in sci-fi YA adaptations (“The Hunger Games,” “Ender’s Game,” “Divergent,” “The Giver,” “The Maze Runner“). At the New York World’s Fair in 1964, an exceptional young boy, Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson), submitted his invention for a science compe- Casey (Britt Robertson) finds herself in a strange new world in Walt Disney’s “Tomorrowland.” Photo courtesy Walt Disney Pictures tition, a jetpack, or more like a prototype. Even though the jetpack didn’t exactly fly, with an innocence of a child, Frank made a positive case to the head scientist (Hugh Laurie) about the importance of being inspired and thus making the world a better place. He attracted the attention of an intelligent android, Athena (Raffey Cassidy), who snuck him into a magical, parallel world... Tomorrowland. Bright-eyed with wonder, Frank found a hopeful place where the impossible became possible. At the present time, Casey Newton (Britt Robertson), a spirited, optimistic tomboy with a bright scientific mind, gets arrested when she causes troubles at a NASA site. She has the best intention to help her soonto-be-unemployed NASA engineer dad. When she collects her belongings at the police station, she finds a decorative pin emblazoned with a “T” symbol and is confounded when she is transported to a world beyond imagination. The same Tomorrowland young Frank landed on decades ago. A futuristic metropolis gleaming with glass spheres, spiraling roadways, hover trains and multileveled pools, occupied by the best and brightest and brimming with endless possibilities. Possessing the pin leads to tribulations back in the real world. Eventually, the ageless Athena tracks down Casey and brings her to meet Frank (George Clooney, “Up in the Air,” “The Descendants,” “The Ides of March“), now a middle-aged man. The former young inventor is a bitter loner. Although it’s obvious that inventions are in his veins, as proven with his high-tech home, equipped EXPECTATIONS with cool gizmos and secret entryways.

songwriting being his natural inclination, Hall did start thinking about music again and writing songs, though not with the notion of recording a new album. “Slowly, slowly I had these tunes. And then I got back to the states and I was like, ‘Man I have a whole bunch of tunes here,’ and it just happened naturally,” he said. That sabbatical would lead to his latest full album, “Chapter of the Forest,” released in June of last year. His new EP, “Unpack Your Memories,” which was

released in March, he considers an extension of “Chapter of the Forest,” and as way to say I love you to his fans, that have been with him throughout his career. The music isn’t super flashy, he said. Those songs on the EP were recorded as bare as possible, with his friend and producer Warren Huart essentially mixing the demos that Hall had recorded on his laptop in a bedroom of his house. “Those demos, in that way, to me, they’re very, very intimate because they haven’t been really touched by

anything yet and that’s when the song is first coming out — it’s like super fresh,” he said. “With ‘Chapter of the Forest,’ I really felt like I was finding myself again — sonically — growing into my sound. And I think ‘Unpack Your Memories’ was just an extension of that,” Hall said. So, how does he describe his sound? It’s a question he’s been trying to figure out how to answer for the past eight years, he said. What he’s come up with so far: “It’s like blues, and some reggae, and some folk — and so it’s just music.”

SOLANA BEACH — “Grace, I think,” Trevor Hall said when asked how the Hilton Head, South Carolina native discovered India. The country’s spiritual culture has come to have a significant influence on Hall, the 28-year-old musician, down to his Brahmin-esque appearance. At 15, Hall left his small island of Hilton Head for Idyllwild Arts Academy in California to study classical guitar. It was while in California, he explained, that he became interested in the spiritual practices of the Indian culture, eventually taking a trip to India for the first time in 2007 with some monks. As his music career began to take shape at the age of 16 (his popularity began to surge when one of his songs was used in the “Shrek The Third” film) he would continue to return to India — a place where he could get his creative “juices” refilled, he said. Several years later, suffering from what he called a “down spot” in his life in 2013, Hall opted to take a year away from music to recover from burnout due to a hectic touring schedule and ultimately, a loss of inspiration. Hall would spend an extended amount of time in India, Nepal and then travel into the mountains of Maine and Vermont. “I needed to find my inspiration again,” Hall said, “and that’s usually a place (India) that no matter what, always kicks me into gear.” His only plans during that trip were to just go over and just be, he said.

he culmination of the 2015 Arts Alive banner season is fast approaching with the annual auction festivities scheduled for June 7. Outstanding among the 99 original artworks in this year’s Arts Alive exhibit is Encinitas artist Christina Zeller’s banner titled “Me Ke Aloha Pumehana” (With the Warmth of My Love) depicting a graceful wahine surrounded by lush seaside tropical vegetation. Zeller attributes her painting style largely to having lived on the Indonesian island of Bali as well as Sanibel Island, Florida, along with months sailing in the Bahamas. Having grown up in the German part of Switzerland with a great deal of international experience, Zeller’s artwork is infused with a strong sense of exotic cultures, while also strongly influenced by her extensive career working with fabric design. Zeller earned her bachelor’s degree in arts from Kunstschule Basel/Switzerland with a major in textile and fashion design. Prior to relocating to the U.S. with her husband in 1985, she ran her own company in Switzerland specializing in couture designs. Currently as creative director of Vivacity Sportswear, Zeller is in charge of all designs and product development, including designing original fabric prints. She also consults with start up fashion companies to help them gain familiarity with the industry, especially manufacturing and product development. She says of what she considers her dream career, “I’ve always loved to paint, but made my career in textile and fashion design. I love my job as much as painting; its all about shape, form, composition, proportion and colors. Being creative and having a trained eye to see what works and what does not helps in my career as well as my paintings. I love to be challenged but experienced enough to do the job very well.” When painting in acrylics, Zeller uses multiple overlays to create vivid color. She characteristically begins with black outline to lay out the composition and proportions. She says, “I am not afraid of large white canvases. I love to take the fat brush with black paint and just go for it, and it’s amazing how the blank area becomes alive.” She describes her artwork: “It’s uplifting and makes people happy, including me. People recognize my work because they remember the fun, stress-free style and use of color.” She continues, “I paint for fun and truly enjoy the process. I’m happy for people to say they love my paintings and my use of color and I think my paintings grab peo-

‘Breaking Bad’ is good for Albuquerque hit the road

here’s a yellow sign with red lettering on the lawn of Louie and Fran Padilla’s house. It says: “Warning. Please stay off property. This is a private residence… Thanks for your coopera-

tion.” The Padilla’s need this highly visible admonition because, as much as some people wish it was, their home is not a public monument. It is, however, the house that served as the fictitious home of Walter White, the chemistry teacher-gonewrong in the hit television series “Breaking Bad.” Some days, as many as 200 cars a day cruise by the house in this Albuquerque neighborhood of Northeast Heights.

In 2015 California State University San Marcos celebrates its 25th anniversary. Founded on the principles of excellence and access, the University opened its doors at a temporary storefront location for the first time in 1990 to 448 students. Today CSUSM is home to nearly 13,000 students and boasts more than 35,000 proud alumni who are making an impact every day in the region and beyond.

Be a part of our celebration! Visit www.csusm.edu/25 for a complete calendar of events and to learn more.

And yes, there have been plenty of pizzas tossed on the roof (Season 3; Episode 2). “More pizzas than we ever want to see again,” says Fran, who stands on the sidewalk chatting with series fans. The Padilla home is the most-visited film/TV home in the country, says our driver/guide Frank Sandoval, owner of Breaking Bad RV Tours. “It recently surpassed Tony Soprano’s residence in New Jersey.” Several times a week, Sandoval chauffeurs passengers to 17 “Breaking Bad” film locations throughout the city that has become a mecca for film and TV productions because of a healthy rebate. (Spend $10 million; get $3 million back.) Has “Breaking Bad” been good for Albuquerque? Without a doubt, says Tania Armenta, vice president of marketing for the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We saw interest in the city increase about Season 4. Before that, most people were not aware of the state and what it has to offer. “Tourism numbers have continued to increase in the last few years. Products have been created

Debbie Ball, owner of The Candy Lady store in Albuquerque’s Old Town, says “Breaking Bad” has been great for business.

ting Department of Transportation approval. “After the show ended (in 2013), we had tons of friends flying in to visit the locations where it was filmed,” Sandoval explains. “A friend of mine from Florida… said it would be really cool to cruise around and see the locations in a ‘Breaking Bad’ RV. So we put the wheels in motion.” Since then, Sandoval, who had a minor role as a DEA agent in the series and does a credible imitation of Jesse Pinkman, has introduced Albuquerque to visitors from all over the world – Austria, Australia, Germany, Africa and Russia to name a few. Some of these fans are fanatics. “We had a guy who wanted to run around in his ‘tighty whities’ (as Walter White did in the opening episode). Also, we had a girl who, when she saw the RV, broke down in tears and ran up and hugged and kissed it. She said this was the best day ever in her life.” A saner fan of the show, I didn’t start watching until the season was long over. Conversation about the show’s violence made me reluctant to join the legions of true believers. Then curiosity got the best of me

and I peeked. I got sucked in quickly. So here we are, standing in front of the Padilla home, taking photos and talking with Fran. “People from the production crew just knocked on my door one day and asked if they could use my house,” she explains. At first, Fran thought it was a joke, then checked with the state’s film commission. These guys were for real. “I guess they liked the location. It’s easy to block off the street here.” Only the exterior of the Padilla home was used, including the pool scenes. Initially, the director wanted to cover it, but writers insisted on working it into the script (think teddy bear’s floating eyeball and Skyler’s breakdown). Interior were shot in an Albuquerque sound stage. “Breaking Bad” has changed the Padillas’ lives. They’ve met people from all over the world. “Most of the time, they are nice and respect our property,” Fran tells us, but, according to Sandoval, Fran was (gently) hit by a car once when the driver refused to leave her driveway TURN TO HIT THE ROAD ON 18

Odd Files By Chuck Shepherd Great Art Class! Among the requirements of “Visual Arts 104A” at the University of California, San Diego is that, for the final exam, students would make a presentation while nude, in a darkened room. Professor Ricardo Dominguez (who would also be nude for the finals) told KGTV in May that a nude “gesture” was indeed required (and disclosed to students in the first class) as a “performance of self,” a “standard canvas for performance art and body art.” After an inquiry by KGTV, the department chairman announced that nakedness would not be required for course credit — even though professor Dominguez said in his 11 years teaching the course, no student had ever complained before. The Litigious Society Sober Driver Pays: Sapearya Sao, then 25 and sober that night in 2013 in Portland, Oregon, was rammed by a drunk hit-and-run driver (Nathan Wisbeck), who later rammed another drunk driver — but Sao finds himself defending the lawsuit by the two people injured in Wisbeck’s second collision. Sao recently settled the lawsuit brought by that second drunk driver, but still faces a $9.8 million lawsuit brought by the estate of the second drunk driver’s late passenger, which argues that if Sao had not pursued Wisbeck in an attempt to identify him, the second crash would not have occurred. (Of course, that crash also might not have occurred if the second driver — 0.11 blood alcohol — had been sober.) Wait, What? British forensic scientist Dr. Brooke Magnanti, 39, has written two best-selling books and inspired a TV series based on her life, but she recently filed a lawsuit accusing her ex-boyfriend of libeling her — by telling people that she was NOT formerly a prostitute. A major part of Magnanti’s biography is how she paid for university studies through prostitution — which has supposedly enhanced her marketability. Murder “contracts” are ubiquitous in novels and movies, but an actual murder contract cannot be enforced in American courts. However, a recent “contract” case in Norway (according to the Norwegian newspaper Varden, as reported on Vice.com) came down hard on a hit man who got cold feet. The hit man, who stalled repeatedly, was finally sued by the payer, who won a jury verdict (later set aside) for the unrequited killing. Then, because the hit man had attempted to extort even more money from the payer (to find a substitute killer), the hit man was fined the equivalent of $1,200.

Oceanside Council bans beer and wine sales And that the definition of a fast food restaurant, being an eatery without a full service kitchen, is one the city has long used. The city has been mulling over the exact perimeters for restrictions since February 2014. A stakeholders group of North Coastal Prevention Coalition, Chamber of Commerce, MainStreet, and San Diego County Chapter of the California Restaurant Association representatives met with city staff to give input on the citywide regulations. Council is looking to take further steps to curtail over consumption of alcohol by adopting a sales and service training program at a future date.

Ban will affect fast food and drive thru restaurants

OCEANSIDE — Oceanside City Council took action to head off fast food and drive thru restaurant sales of beer and wine on Wednesday. New applicants for a restaurant beer and wine license must have a full service kitchen, and cannot have drive thru or walk up window service to purchase food and beverages. Currently there are three Oceanside restaurants that sell beer and have drive thru service. Angelo’s Burgers’ three locations will be grandfathered in, and be able to continue business as usual. The 20 fast food eateries without full service kitchens that are currently licensed to sell beer and wine will also be allowed to continue sales. Councilwoman Esther Sanchez said the regulations are not in response to a problem, but directed towards curtailing trends in fast food drive thru restaurants that increasingly offer beer and wine on the menu. Angelo’s Burgers, which has been in operation at its original location on South Coast Highway for 37 years, has policies in place to ensure beer is consumed on location. Beer is

Ahhh, another three-day weekend; time for a family BBQ or a quick get-away. But, while we’re all busy having fun, it is important to remember the true meaning of this holiday. It is a day for remembering the men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to honor soldiers from both sides. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. Many volunteers will place American flags in cemeteries to honor our fallen. Check with your local American Legion, VFW, or scout troop if you would like to participate in this special tribute. Plan your weekend, but please be sure to take a moment to honor those who gave all for our freedom to enjoy this weekend.

out, and reds finish. That’s because reds are more robust and more complex than whites. Reds are made from dark red, even black grapes. Whites are made from green grapes. During fermentation for whites, the stems, seeds and skins are gently removed from the grape juice after being squeezed from the pressing machine. For reds, stems, seeds and skins are left in the grape juice during this process. Tannins and pigments are produced, resulting in this complexity that wine lovers strive for.

crowd pleaser. The formal name for the dish is Roasted Corn and Applewood Bacon Stuffed Artichokes. Do I have your attention yet? If not, read on because there is much more to this recipe and it only gets better. I’m going to create this recipe for two people so adjust accordingly for more and I really don’t do a lot of measuring, it’s more of an instinctive preparation. First off, pull out your best, offset serrated knife and cut off the top quarter of the artichoke. Then cut it down the middle vertically so you have two even halves, or as even as you can get them. Bring a large pot of water with some chicken stock, salt and pepper, and a mix of dried herbs to a boil. I tend to stick with the Italian blend of herbs with this dish. While the halved artichokes are cooking, that’s the time to start your grill. I prefer charcoal and wood mix but a gas grill would work fine too. This is also the time to start the risotto by cooking the Arborio rice in olive oil with a handful of finely diced onion for about three to five minutes then start adding your white wine and chicken stock as needed. Risotto requires regular stirring and adding of stock so keep that in mind as you start the applewood bacon

in the frying pan. I cut it up with some sharp kitchen scissors then when it’s almost done I add the corn either cut from an ear or Trader Joes roasted corn that is already seasoned. For two people I’d go with eight slices of bacon and half a bag of corn or two ears. You want to have left over risotto for your morning after risotto cakes so that usually translates into about half a bag or box. Just before the risotto reaches that perfect al dente consistency, which entails a lot of tasting to ensure, add the bacon and corn then cook and stir for another five minutes while you drain the artichokes. The leaves should come off the choke with a slight tug and the edible nugget on the leave should be firm enough for five minutes on the grill and finished in a broiler. At this point, add whipping cream to the risotto to your desired consistency and turn it off. A small, serrated steak knife works perfectly to scoop out the inedible center of the artichoke by cutting right along the top of the heart. It should be cooked enough that the center part just slides out. Season the artichokes with salt and pepper and give them a nice char on both sides of your hot grill. While they are on the grill, grate your favorite dry Italian cheese like a Pecori-

no or Romano or Parmesan into a nice fluffy pile. Take the artichokes off the grill and put the empty cavity up on a foil lined cookie sheet and then overstuff them with the risotto. You should have risotto in and around the artichokes, covering the pan. Sprinkle a liberal amount of the grated cheese over the entire pan of risotto and place it in your oven or toaster oven pre-heated to broil. Cook until the top is golden brown and there you go. I’ve done this dish with a nice steak or piece of fish but I’ve also done it solo as you have your meat, veggie and starch in the risotto and the artichoke. Next morning, form the left over risotto into small cakes and fry on each side until crispy brown and top with two eggs cooked to your liking. Once again, the bacon in the risotto provides the meaty goodness and well, I enjoy that as much as the dinner the night before. If you have specific questions on the preparation of this, please feel free to shoot me an email and I would be happy to help.

Pendleton holds ceremony for new Fisher House By Lance Cpl. Asia J. Sorenson

CAMP PENDLETON — Camp Pendleton opened the doors May 15, to new, free temporary housing facilities for military families visiting wounded Marines and Sailors at the base Naval Hospital. Brig. Gen. Edward D. Banta, Commanding General, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Marine Corps Installations – West, and Kenneth Fisher, chairman and chief executive officer of the Fisher House Foundation responsible for establishing the facilities, were present for the ribbon cutting ceremony. The $2.65 million project spans 8,000 square-feet and is expected to accommodate more than 280 military families that are visiting their loved ones at the base hospital. “With this house here now, we have the ability to take care of our families as they should be cared for, so our Marines and Sailors won’t have to worry about their families at a time when

they really need them most,” said Brig. Gen. Banta. This is the third housing project launched by the Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Rockville, Maryland, that

runs 64 houses at military and Veteran’s Affairs medical centers across the country. Two other housing centers launched near Balboa Park at the Naval Medical Center San Diego.

Free child care is also available for the military families staying at the house through the base’s Zach and Elizabeth Fisher Child Development Center, which is funded through a grant from

the UnitedHealth Foundation’s Caregiver Support Program. “The Fisher House Foundation and this building are so important to us, when a Marine or Sailor is sick or

injured, there is no stronger healing power than having their family and loved ones by their side,” said John. H. Mateczum, president of the UnitedHealthcare Military and Veterans. “This opening is going to make it possible for 280 families a year to be near their loved ones during that healing period.” The Fisher House Foundation also offers the Hero Miles program and Hotels for Heroes, which uses donated frequent flier miles and hotel points to provide family members with travel and accommodation opportunities to get to wounded military relatives. “We, as Americans, must take an oath as those that wear the uniform or wore the uniform take,” said Fisher. “To support their families, to take care of them and promote them. That is what Fisher House is about.” The Fisher House Foundation has served more than 220,000 families since its inception in 1991.

and security in mind as they spend time together, participating in leisure travel and activities such as swimming, boating, sports and other events. “Our mission is force preservation and our main focus is to continuously raise the awareness of our personnel so that we can prevent non-operational casualties from occurring,” said Jaime Rivadeneira, occupational safe-

ty and health supervisor. “Each and every Marine or Sailor is a valuable resource and they are what allows the Marine Corps to accomplish its missions.” The 101 Critical Days of Summer begin on Memorial Day weekend and ends after Labor Day. According to Gunnery Sgt. Monica Cervantes, base safety representative, during the months of July, August and September, 2014, there was a 20 percent increase in mishaps, with 27 DUIs that resulted in injury – two times the amount of DUIs throughout the rest of the year. The training sought to provide Marines and Sailors with a better understanding on how to prevent injuries and accidents and to reduce the amount of casualties this summer. “The same mishaps occur during the summer season, so we have to keep putting the message out there that help is avail-

to host the Recon Challenge

able,” said Cervantes. “Our messages might not reach everybody but if it reaches a few people and those people spread the information then it will make a difference.” The topics ranged from safety procedures for motorcycles, private motor vehicles, recreational

vehicles, boats and miscellaneous watercraft, to preventing and treating heat injuries, lawn and garden tips and general household safety tips. During the 101 Critical Days of Summer, the base safety office will continue to provide information on summer safety tips and guidelines.

CAMP PENDLETON — Reconnaissance Training Company, Advanced Infantry Training Battalion, Camp Pendleton, will host the 7th annual Marine Corps wide “Recon Challenge,” here to share camaraderie, pain and esprit de corps in order to remember those in the community that paid the ultimate sacrifice.
