Synagogue shooting suspect may be arsonist CSUSM student, 19, also charged in March mosque fire in Escondido City News Service

POWAY MAYOR Steve Vaus embraces Oscar Stewart during a memorial service for shooting victim Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, on Monday, April 29, at Chabad of Poway. Two days earlier, Stewart, a U.S. Army veteran, chased the shooter out of the synagogue. In addition to Kaye, three people were injured in the attack. More on Page 7. Photo by Jordan P. Ingram

REGION — A young man accused of opening fire inside a Poway synagogue on the last day of Passover with an AR-15-style assault rifle, killing a woman and injuring three other people, including the congregation’s rabbi, pleaded not guilty April 30 to murder and attempted murder charges. John T. Earnest, 19, of Rancho Penasquitos, stood stone-faced during much of the brief court hearing and said little. The not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf by a public defender. The only word Earnest uttered was “yes,”when asked if he agreed to a longer-than-usual delay before his next court hearing. That hearing was set for May 30. Prosecutors allege Earnest, a student at Cal State University San Marcos, entered the synagogue armed with a semi-automatic rifle and clad in a tactical vest

carrying five 10-round magazines. He fired between eight to 10 rounds before the gun either jammed or malfunctioned, leading him to flee the scene in his car, according to prosecutors, who said Earnest legally purchased the rifle. In addition to charges stemming from the April 27 shooting, Earnest is also charged with arson of a house of worship for allegedly trying to burn down an Escondido mosque on March 24. He allegedly took responsibility for setting the non-injury fire at the Islamic Center of Escondido in a manifesto posted online before Saturday’s synagogue shooting. The Poway shooting occurred exactly six months after a shooting rampage at a Pittsburgh synagogue, where 11 people were gunned down. The hate crime allegaTURN TO SHOOTING ON 7

Film earns Vista students a trip to NYC By Steve Puterski

VISTA — Looking through the lens of her father, Vista High School sophomore Zahlia Alcala found a vision. So she, along with Vista High sophomore Odalis Ramirez and Vista Visions Academy sophomore Melissa Ramirez, turned her father’s journey from immigrant, to successful businessman and eventual college graduate into a compelling five-minute documentary film titled “El Sueño Americano!” (The American Dream).

And the result was being awarded one of the top honors for high school film students, the Panasonic KWN New Vision Award and a trip for the trio to New York City. “I thought of my dad because of all the hard work he does,” Zahlia Alcala said. “I introduced it to the club and they all thought it was a good idea.” The three budding filmmakers started the project in January, showcasing Ignacio Alcala’s journey from Mexico to the U.S.,

his struggles with learning a new language, finding work, building a business and raising a family. Perhaps most importantly, though, was his drive to earn his high school GED, and attend and graduate from MiraCosta College while juggling all those responsibilities. The film begins with Zahlia Alcala speaking to the audience about this man, who is not revealed VISTA HIGH SCHOOL sophomores Zahlia Alcala, from left, and Odalis to be her father until near the end.

Airport deal under scrutiny; group alleges Brown Act violation By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A resident group who has been fighting against the McClellan-Palomar Master Plan for years is demanding action from the city. Attorney Cory Briggs, who represents Citizens for a Friendly Airport, submitted a letter April 23 requesting the city “cure” its March 27 approval of a legal settlement with the county of San Diego regarding the lawsuit the city filed against the county in December. The council approved the settlement 4-1, with Councilwoman Cori Schumacher voting against the deal. The city sued the county as a result of issues with the coun-

ty’s environmental impact report (EIR), as required by the California Environmental Quality Act. The City Council had a closed session meeting for three-anda-half hours on March 27 before convening a public meeting to announce the decision. “They went and did it in secret instead of in public,” Briggs said. “They didn’t just agree to drop the lawsuit, they agreed to do a bunch of other stuff.” Briggs also requests the city readdress the issue within 30 days of receiving the letter. In addition, Briggs’ letter says his client may sue before receiving a response from the city.

“In particular, the agenda did not lawfully inform the public that the Carlsbad City Council intended to consider and/or approve a Mutual Settlement Agreement and Cooperation Agreement of the lawsuit,” Briggs’ letter reads. It continues, “(the settlement) was illegally approved in closed session, including but not limited to modifying CUP-172, withdrawing a zoning-ordinance amendment, and agreeing not to exercise land-use authority.” Carlsbad City Attorney Celia Brewer replied to Briggs with a letter on April 24. She said the city has scheduled the matter as an agenda item on May 7, saying, “While we disagree with your analysis, in an

abundance of caution, we will add curative action as you request.” Brewer did not respond to a request for comment citing the ongoing litigation. The group has long railed against a possible expansion of the airport, offload traffic being rerouted from San Diego International Airport, noise, pollution, voluntary flight hours, in addition to the findings from the EIR. Many residents are concerned the county will use the master plan to turn the facility into another John Wayne Airport. The agreement does establish permanent quarterly meetings to keep city staff updated on airport

issues. In addition, the county will give the city 30 days to comment, react and provide feedback on any major development plans at the airport. Another aspect is the county is committed to all of the mitigation set forth in the Mitigation Monitoring Program in the final EIR, in addition to those required by law. Attorney Peter Kirsch, whose Denver-based firm was hired by the city last year, said the county will include all mitigation measures in responses to comments in the EIR. Also, the county will install two more noise meters to monitor levels of air traffic coming and going from the airport.

Firefighter recovering from brain injury By Steve Puterski

VISTA — A local firefighter remains in critical, but stable, condition after suffering a workplace accident on April 14. Jimmy Williams, a fire engineer and veteran of the Vista Fire Department, was found unresponsive at his firehouse with two skull fractures, according to a post on Williams’ GoFundMe page. Williams is receiving an outpouring of support through social media and the GoFundMe page, from friends, family and other fire departments. As of April 30, $14,635 has been raised with a goal of $25,000. His wife, Natalie Williams, reported an update to the page. Jimmy Williams was transported to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido with significant bleeding, intracranial pressure (ICP) and underwent a craniotomy. He was also placed on a ventilator shortly after being admitted to the hospital and later underwent a tracheotomy so he could breathe easier, according to an April 22 Facebook post from his wife. The Vista Fire Department declined to comment

on the accident and Williams’ condition citing family privacy. “The good news is that since the surgery, his ICP has stabilized and his vitals all look good,” Natalie Williams post read. According to an April 27 post on her Facebook page,

Natalie Williams said her husband is charging ahead with his recovery. Jimmy Williams is able to speak in complete sentences about 50% of the time, able to carry conversations; although he still has difficulty when engaged in conversation, she said.

In addition, Jimmy Williams is also able to walk with the assistance of an occupational therapist. He also works with a speech therapist and has been cleared for a puree diet, his wife said. Still, the recovery is delicate as Natalie Williams said he still on a feeding tube, but was transferred to the Trauma Intermediate Care Unit. “While all these things are huge accomplishments for Jimmy, the biggest highlight of the last two days is the fact that I can say with certainty that Jimmy remembers his family, friends and most importantly, his children,” Natalie Williams said. “He might not always be able to verbalize our names at the exact moment we ask, but on his own time, throughout our days together he has asked for all of us by name.” Jimmy Williams graduated from Fresno State University with a degree in agriculture education with an emphasis in agriculture mechanics. He is also an avid outdoorsman with a passion for duck hunting and riding dirt and mountain bikes. He and Natalie Williams married in 2008.

ESCONDIDO — The Palomar College Governing Board could become San Diego County’s first community college district to live stream its meetings. Both Palomar College biology professor Lesley Williams and governing board trustee Nina Deerfield have endorsed the proposal. Williams, who is hearing-impaired, said she has asked the governing board to stream the meetings due in large part to the accompanying legal mandate to have closed captioning on televised items. Williams said she can read lips to understand about 50% of what people say at the meetings if she has a plain view. “Can you imagine having a conversation and only understanding half of what the other person is saying?” she asked. Deerfield came out in support of the live stream proposal at the April 10 governing board meeting. "All of the local city and school board meetings I've attended already have this in place,” said Deerfield. “It is the right thing to do for the hearing impaired and people that live too far to attend our meetings, for people with other commitments, and it is obviously the right thing to do for transparency.” In response, Laura Gropen — Palomar College’s director of communications — said President Joi Lin Blake’s staff has begun researching the economic and logistical feasibility of live streaming. Gropen says it comes down to having the manpower to pull it off, as well as the budget to pay for closed captioning technology. The college at which Blake formerly served as president, College of Alameda, live streams its board meetings with closed captions under the umbrella of the Peralta Community College District board of trustees. “I worked in other districts where it's livestreamed, so that's not an issue, so I'm not trying to block that or not make that happen,” Blake said at the April 10 meeting. “But we have to figure out how much it's going to cost because the

folks at Palomar College Television don't work for free.” Palomar College, akin to the San Francisco Bay-area Peralta TV, has its own television station in the form of Palomar College Television. As it stands today, the Palomar College Governing Board audio records all of its meetings, making those available upon request. At the April 10 meeting, Deerfield called for the past audio recordings of meeting to go up the board’s website "immediately.” She described the current process as both "unacceptable and an unnecessary waste of our time.” Blake said that audio of the meetings would begin to be posted online. And she said that the feasibility study would continue to unfold over the coming weeks. Unlike televised meetings, no legal mandate exists to do closed captioning for audio recordings on California governmental meetings. But Williams believes that the feasibility study for televising board meetings serves as a stalling tactic, saying that she believes Blake likes to “control the narrative” and wants to avoid an airing of the board’s “dirty laundry” to both the general public and press unable to attend meetings in-person. Williams further said that at the May 14 Palomar College Governing Board meeting she may raise the live stream issue, during the open session portions of the meeting, as falling under the purview of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. She said that she believes compliance with that legislation necessitates making accommodations to disabled individuals regardless of the cost. For the feasibility study, Gropen said that no particular Palomar College staffer has received the task as an assignment via Blake. And no timeline exists, todate, for the study’s completion. If Palomar College does begin live-streaming its meetings and publishing them online, it would be the first of the five San Diego County community college districts to do so.

Disregarding popular will, it’s not just Gov. Newsom


Should we be allowed to love our natural lands to death? By Diane Nygaard

The recent controversy over mountain biking at the Carlsbad Highlands Ecological Reserve is not a new issue, and is not one that can be easily resolved. Some would argue that these are public lands. Our tax dollars paid for them so we should be allowed to use them. But these lands were acquired in many ways — including donations and exaction from developers to mitigate for land that has already been lost for more housing or strip malls. Ecological Reserves, like the Carlsbad Highlands, are lands that are specifically set aside to protect plants and wildlife that are at risk of becoming extinct. Can we use these lands and not harm the plants and wildlife they are intended to protect? That answer depends upon the land, and the kind of use that is proposed. Some areas can’t tolerate any use — nesting birds could abandon their eggs if disturbed by an inquisitive dog, or soil compaction from walking can destroy dormant plants in a vernal pool that might not even be visible most of the time. But sawing down mature plants, digging holes

and building jumps is vandalism, not “use.” No one has the right to vandalize these lands that have been set aside for all of us. In other areas, low impact public use can coexist with native plants and wildlife. But that determination must be made at the time the land is set aside. That ensures sufficient funds are committed to manage the land so that all allowed uses will not cause damage, or if they do, that damage can be reversed. Legally, public use of these lands is a privilege, not a right. And it is a privilege that we all want to protect. But whether we have “use” of the lands or not, we all benefit from having natural lands incorporated into the fabric of our communities. Our air is cleaner. Our watersheds are less polluted. Our spirits are enriched by views that don’t include cars and houses, by the sound of the gnatcatcher or the smell of artemesia in the spring. We all see how our communities are changing as growth occurs, and we know that much of that change is inevitable. More houses are built, so we have less open space land. Those houses bring more people who now

have less land to recreate on. And we all love our natural lands and want to spend time there. Houses, and mountain bikers, and people and native plants and wildlife can’t all exist on the exact same piece of land. But we all need to support ways that allow these, sometimes competing, interests to coexist. That means providing places for healthy outdoor recreation like mountain biking that doesn’t damage sensitive areas like Carlsbad Highlands, adequately funding the California Department of Fish and Wildlife so they can protect our native plants and wildlife, and supporting sound planning that reduces sprawl development and provides for growth while still protecting natural open space. We can recognize these conflicts, and commit the funding, and effort to do better than we have been doing. Or, we can ignore these conflicts at Carlsbad Highlands and elsewhere, and allow ourselves to love these lands to death. Diane Nygaard is president of Preserve Calavera, a local nonprofit conservation organization.

Tackling mental health and addiction By Marie Waldron

Mental health and drug addiction are often co-occurring disorders, with a big impact. I have been working on commonsense, bi-partisan solutions to these problems since my days on the city council. As a member of the Mental Health Caucus, I serve on several committees that deal directly with these issues, including Assembly Health Committee and the Select Committee on Health Care Delivery & Universal Coverage. I am also a member of the Stanford 5 Year

Initiative on Neuroscience, a working group that fosters communications between policymakers and researchers regarding mental health and opioid addiction. This session I introduced legislation to strengthen the voice of local mental health boards to help meet the needs of the mentally ill and a bill to allow payment to substance use providers in every county. In addition, I have joined with Assembly Republicans to support expanding current programs providing loan repayment for physicians and mental

health providers who practice in underserved areas, including rural parts of this region. Those suffering with mental illness and substance abuse can turn their lives around. There is a lot of work to do. By making access to treatment available and affordable while reducing stigma, we can restore lives. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature.

or Gov. Gavin Newsom, there’s been an almost unprecedented mix of adulation and approbation for his bold moves granting reprieves to more than 700 inmates on California’s Death Row and ordering the state’s legal killing chamber dismantled. From the left came huzzahs and expressions of admiration from folks who believe that because very occasionally an innocent person has been executed, no one should be, no matter how cruel, evil or heinous their crime, no matter how strongly the sentencing jury may have felt. This school of thought has never been a majority preference in California, no matter how liberal its politics have become, although the margins by which capital punishment is favored are narrowing. Where Proposition 17 passed by a 2-1 margin in 1972, enshrining executions in the state constitution, 44 years later in 2016, the Proposition 62 measure aiming to end capital punishment lost by only a 52-48 percent margin. That was about the same edge by which voters passed Proposition 66 the same year, trying to speed up the legal process for executions. So while death penalty advocates blasted Newsom’s reprieves as defying popular will, it’s clear popular will on this issue isn’t nearly as strong or singular as it was almost half a century ago. Nevertheless, the electorate’s wishes were expressed and Newsom ignored them, despite campaign promises last year to be “accountable to the will of the voters.” He also asserted that “I would not put my

california focus thomas d. elias personal opinions in the way of the public’s right to make a determination of where they want to take us…” But Newsom has defied the will of California voters before and won. His short-lived 2004 order as mayor of San Francisco fostering samesex marriages there clearly defied public sentiment around the state, as measured by the easy passage of the 2008 Proposition 8 that briefly banned gay unions. But Newsom won out in the end when courts all over America ruled samesex marriage legal, such unions becoming almost routine today. That sequence of events made Newsom a liberal icon and eventually sent him to the governor’s office. But Newsom is far from alone in defying the public will, as expressed via its votes. The courts do it fairly regularly, on issues from public exposure to chemicals to the best-known example: the piecemeal legal dismantling of the 1994 anti-illegal immigrant Proposition 187, struck down one provision at a time over the five years after it passed, despite winning by about a 2-1 margin. The measure would have banned the undocumented from virtually all public benefits, from public schooling to emergency room care. This spring it was state legislators led by Democratic Assemblyman

Richard Bloom of Santa Monica attempting to overturn last fall’s public “no” vote on Proposition 10, which would have spread rent control to virtually all parts of the state. Bloom, however, withdrew his bid, without apology, when it went nowhere. Meanwhile, a spate of bills hailed by Newsom would change the status quo on rents, which Proposition 10’s defeat left unchanged. There’s a bill to spread rent control to single-family homes and apartments more than 10 years old even in cities whose rent-control laws specifically exempt them. There’s one to ban what sponsoring Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu of San Francisco calls rent gouging and another aiming to limit evictions. All this reopens the rent control debate a mere six months after it appeared resolved. As it turns out, virtually nothing was resolved. Perhaps it’s one-party rule that makes officials from Newsom down to back-bench legislators feel empowered to scorn the clearly expressed public will. Democrats hold every statewide office and control both sides of the Legislature by margins of more than two-thirds. Who’s going to stop them when they want to counteract what the voters want? They know the Republican label is so toxic today in most parts of California that merely defying or ignoring what the public wants will cost them nothing, and so they do it without hesitating.

Vista revenue up, pensions a concern, projections show By Steve Puterski

VISTA — For the first time in at least 10 years, city staff will be presenting consecutive operating budgets to the City Council. Assistant City Manager Aly Zimmermann said April 23 the city will present the budgets for Fiscal Years 2019-20 and 2020-21. She said staff will present a balanced budget in May for the council’s review before submitting the final draft in June for approval. The city will continue to follow the traditional Fiscal Year calendar from July

1 to June 30 in the following year. “This is allowing us to be more efficient with our human resources,” Zimmermann said of the two-year process. “This will also reinforce our commitment to long-term fiscal health by looking ahead a few years.” Although the two-year process is in place, the City Council will be provided quarterly financial updates and a mid-cycle review 12 months after the initial adoption of the two-year budget. Zimmermann said the

process starts in the fall with staff reviewing and fine tuning budgets until the draft budget is presented in May. “The city continues to benefit from a great economy,” Zimmermann said. General Fund revenue projections are expected to increase by nearly $5 million, from $78.6 million in Fiscal Year 2018-19 to $82.2 million for the 2019-20 budget cycle. In 2020-21, the city estimates generating $83.5 million. More than half of the city’s General Fund reve-

nue comes from property and sales tax. General Fund expenditures are projected at $75.2 million and $77.7 million in 2019-20 and 2020-21, respectively. Public safety is by far the largest source of expenditures, as it accounts for 66% for both years. Vista contracts with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department for police services, but funds its own fire department. Zimmermann said the city is replacing a brush engine for the fire deTURN TO BUDGET ON 10

OCEANSIDE — Beginning this fall, the first two years of college will be free for first-time, full-time MiraCosta students. MiraCosta College recently announced its expansion of the MiraCosta College Promise to include subsidizing tuition and mandatory fees for all firsttime, full-time students for two years. The MiraCosta Promise, first initiated in fall 2017, originally provided one year of tuition-free college to financially eligible students, along with up to $1,000 for textbooks and other supplies. According to Kristen Huyck, communications director for MiraCosta, a student had to graduate from an accredited high school or live within the MiraCosta Community College District boundaries to be eligible for the Promise before this expansion. Now, in order to be eligible, a student must be a first-time college student, apply to MiraCosta for the fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters and commit to enrolling in 12 units, be a California resident and file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a California Dream Act Application (CADAA). “Income is not a requirement” under MiraCosta’s expanded Promise, Huyck said via email.

The second year of subsidized tuition and fees is contingent upon the state’s pending budget approval. If passed, Assembly Bill 2 would expand the 2017 bill that dispersed $46 million to the state’s community colleges with the option to cover the first year of tuition fees for students to two years instead of just one. AB2 mirrors Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposal to make a full two years of community college free for students, which included an additional $40 million in his budget to fund the second year. “MiraCosta College is committed to expanding opportunities for students to complete a degree and/ or certificate,” Huyck said. “While the outcome in the passage of AB 2 is in the hands of the state legislature and potentially the governor, the district is hopeful that AB 2 funding can assist in the removal of one of the financial barriers for future students.” According to Huyck, the MiraCosta Promise will subsidize tuition and mandatory fees for all first-time, full-time college students for only one year if AB2 fails. Additionally, MiraCosta already provides students free access to support services such as academic counseling and educational planning.

‘It’s not going to knock us down. It’s going to lift us up.’ Victim Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, honored at memorial service City News Service

POWAY — Bereaved relatives, grieving fellow congregants and an array of political leaders gathered April 29 to mourn the death and celebrate the life of a woman gunned down at a Poway synagogue on the final day of Passover during a shooting rampage Kaye allegedly fueled by anti-Semitism. Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, described by her rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, as one of Chabad of Poway's “pioneers,” was a former bank employee who helped get the congregation a loan to build its house of worship in North County. The afternoon funeral for Kaye took place just two days after a gunman opened fire with an assault rifle at the synagogue, killing her and wounding three others, including Goldstein. Some witnesses said Kaye

suffered the fatal wound while trying to protect the rabbi from the gunfire. Kaye was shot late Saturday morning while at the temple with her husband and daughter to honor her recently deceased mother, according to Goldstein, who lost one index finger in the shooting and spent hours in surgery as doctors worked to save the other. After the shooter’s gun jammed, he was chased out of the building by a Border Patrol agent who is a member of the congregation. The suspect, 19-year-old John T. Earnest of Rancho Penasquitos, fled in a vehicle but was arrested nearby a short time later. During the memorial service, Goldstein, at times gesturing with his mutilated and bandaged right hand, told the overflow crowd there were “no adequate words to describe what we all endured in this room this past (Sabbath).” During the attack, the congregation “saw the

darkest of humanity,” Goldstein told the gathering, which was attended by San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, several members of the county Board of Supervisors and other local and state elected leaders.


tions filed in connection with the attack at Chabad of Poway make Earnest eligible for the death penalty, should prosecutors decide to pursue it. Earnest, a nursing student at Cal State San Marcos, remains in custody without bail. District Attorney Summer Stephan said that in addition to the possible death penalty, Earnest faces another 103 years to life for the attempted murders and arson. At an April 30 news conference, Stephan said hate crimes are on the rise and those who commit them will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. “While Saturday’s shooting devastated the heart of San Diego County, it has galvanized our spirit to stand against hate and to hold those who hate accountable,” Stephan said. “As prosecutors, we deal with violence on a daily basis. But when the target of violence is an entire religion, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, the victim pool becomes very large. It is everyone who practices that faith or belongs to that race or ethnicity, and that is why hate crimes are taken so seriously and California has some of the strictest hate crime laws in the country.” The gunfire erupted at 11:20 a.m. Saturday as around 30 people were celebrating the eight-day Jewish festival of Passover. Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, was shot twice in the synagogue’s foyer and died at the scene. The three surviving victims, Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, 57; Almog Peretz, 34; and his 8-year-old niece, Noya Dahan, were treated at hospitals and have since been released. Goldstein said Kaye, a

longtime member of the congregation that he founded in 1986, was at the temple with her physician husband and daughter to honor her mother, who recently died. He told reporters on Sunday that Kaye “took the bullet for all of us.” Goldstein lost his right index finger in the shooting and underwent surgery as medical personnel worked to save another of his digits. Peretz was shot in a leg while shepherding children to safety. His niece was struck by shrapnel in her face and leg. An off-duty Border Patrol agent working as a security guard was inside the temple when the shooting began, and he opened fire as the suspect fled, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said. The agent did not strike Earnest, but did hit the suspect’s car, authorities said. Police said Earnest called 911 at around 11:30 a.m. and said he had been involved in the shooting and was armed. A San Diego po-

lice officer who had been en route to the synagogue spotted the suspect’s vehicle and pulled him over at 17051 W. Bernardo Drive, less than two miles west of the synagogue, Deputy District Attorney Leonard Trinh said. Earnest got out of his vehicle with his hands up, and was taken into custody without further incident, according to police. Though he allegedly shouted anti-Semitic slurs during the rampage, Earnest is not believed to be part of an organized hate group, according to law enforcement officials. “We believe he acted alone and without outside support in carrying out the attack,” a Sheriff’s Department statement says. In court Tuesday, a prosecutor said the entire shooting inside the synagogue was captured by surveillance cameras. In the “open letter” that authorities allege Earnest posted online shortly before the shooting, the author es-

“I saw it face to face,” the rabbi said. “I wish to never see that ever again. I wish no one ever sees that ever again. At the same moment, we saw the heroic efforts of humanity, running into the line of fire to spare pouses flagrant anti-Semitic sentiments and a need to protect the “European race.” He wrote that he spent four weeks planning the attack, citing his “disgust” for Jews and a desire to kill them, and expressed admiration for the Australian white nationalist who attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, last month, killing 50 people. The writer also claims responsibility for the March 24 fire set at the Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque, also known as Islamic Center of Escondido. The 3:15 a.m. fire was quickly extinguished by people inside the mosque. Graffiti left on the building made reference to the mosques attacks in Christchurch. Earnest’s family issued a statement Monday saying they were “shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible attack on the Chabad of Poway synagogue. But our sadness pales in comparison to the grief and anguish our son has caused for so many innocent people. He has killed and injured the faithful who were gathered in a sacred place on a sacred day. To our great shame, he is now part of the history of evil that has been perpetrated on Jewish people for centuries.” The family’s statement said Earnest’s apparent hateful attitudes had been “informed by people we do not know and ideas we do not hold.” “Like our other five children, he was raised in a family, a faith and a community that all rejected hate and taught that love must be the motive for everything we do,” they stated. “How our son was attracted to such darkness is a terrifying mystery to us, though we are confident that law enforcement will uncover many details of the path that he took to this evil and despicable act.”

other lives, putting their lives in danger. This is the best of humanity.” The rabbi insisted the congregation will rise above the trauma wreaked by the tragedy. “What we are going to take from this event is (that) it’s not going to knock us down,” he said. “It's going to lift us up.” The victim’s husband praised his late wife as a highly generous and loving person. “She had a soul that was greater than any of us ever could believe,” said Howard Kaye, a physician who tried in vain to save his wife’s life with CPR while she lay mortally wounded at the temple. The grieving husband also had a message for perpetrators of the type of crime that took his wife’s life. “And for all of the people who perpetrate hate through this world, you’re feeding on blood,” he said. “You’re lowering yourselves to a level below an animal, and for that reason get out while you can. Turn your life around. Come back into the real world, the world of Lori, which is

peace and love on Earth.” One of the victim’s sisters told the gathering that Kaye “was taken from us in a tragic way, but not in vain.” “This is a house of God,” Randi Grossman said. “We are a people who believe in God. And we believe God does things for the good. If he chose Lori ... there is a reason. And although we don't know what the reason is, we know that i’s for the greater good. Lori died on (the Sabbath). Lori died on Passover. Lori died in a synagogue. And Lori died saving our rabbi.” Donna Doan, a self-described Catholic, told a reporter she attended the funeral in support of the Jewish community. “I feel like I have to be here,” the Rancho Bernardo woman said outside the synagogue. Another attendee, a Carlsbad resident and Christian who identified herself only as Caryn, said she was at the memorial to show support for the victimized congregation. “I love the Jewish community,” she said. “I hate to see senseless and irrational crimes committed.”

Graham accuser gets second chance By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — A Superior Court judge has reinstated the probation of a woman who falsely accused former State Assembly candidate Phil Graham of sexual misconduct, giving her a second chance to comply with the requirements. Nichole Burgan was sentenced in February to two days in county jail and three years’ probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of filing a false report with the Sheriff’s Department in connection to her allegations against Graham. Her sentence included a 90-day jail term that was stayed pending completion of her probation, $655 fine, 10 days public works ser-

vice and a mental health evaluation. Last month, a different judge ruled that Burgan has already violated the terms of her probation and scheduled an evidentiary hearing to determine if Burgan will go to jail for the full 90 days. At the April 19 hearing, it was revealed that Burgan had only completed half of her two-day sentence and had not started the process of her mental health evaluation with the County Department of Behavioral Health Services. Judge Sim Von Kalinowski said if Burgan fails to comply, she likely would be jailed for at least some of the 90 days, which remain stayed.

Man crossing 78 fatally struck by two vehicles VISTA — A pedestrian was struck and killed by two vehicles while attempting to cross state Route 78 in Vista, authorities said May 1. Dispatchers received several 911 calls around 8:15 p.m. April 30 from people reporting that a pedestrian was attempting to cross westbound state Route 78 near Melrose Drive, California Highway Patrol public-affairs Officer Mark Latulippe said. The man, believed to be 30 years old, entered the highway lanes and was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado, then a Mazda 3 hatchback, Latulippe said.

The unidentified man was taken to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, where he was later pronounced dead, the officer said. The Chevrolet and Mazda drivers remained at the scene and cooperated with officers, Latulippe said, adding that intoxication was not believed to have been a factor in the crash. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or who has information about the identity of the victim, who is believed to have been a transient, was asked to call the CHP at 858-637-3800. — City News Service

‘A park within a park’ at Walnut Grove in San Marcos as VIBE. In 2009, the San Marcos School District built a brand-new San Marcos Elementary School, replacing the original school that was built in the 1940s, she said. “This meant our museum building had to be relocated. By fall of 2010, the historic Mary Y. Connors Hall was reconstructed within Heritage Park and a brand-new ‘Welcome Center’ was constructed as well, so the historical society would have a place for the library, meeting and office space and storage.” Brown adds that Heritage Park is “a park within a park,” and Walnut Grove Park was — as you might guess — a walnut grove owned by Bill Uhland, who comes from a San Marcos pioneer family. “Until the late 1970s the community could pick walnuts off the remaining trees while they were at the park,” she said. “After the redesign of the park in 2005, activities included an equestrian center for individuals and group events; soccer and multipurpose sports fields; trails for walking and biking; covered picnic areas;

SAN MARCOS — Most cities have parks, but San Marcos has Walnut Grove Park, which has “a park within a park.” It has quite the history, too. According to San Marcos Historical Society’s Tanis Brown, Walnut Grove Park had been an undeveloped park since the 1970s, where activities focused on equestrian and large events such as the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce’s annual chili cookoff in the 1980s. Then in 1993, the historic Williams Square Barn, located at the intersection of Mission Road, San Marcos Boulevard and Twin Oaks Valley Road was moved to Walnut Grove Park to make way for road improvements and the new City Hall complex. The park remained mostly undeveloped and then in 2000, the San Marcos Historical Society made a plea to the City Council to save a historic home not far from the park. The request was approved, and just two years later, another

house from the area was also moved to the park. It wasn’t until several years later that the houses would be restored, but the moves led the way for the establishment of a historical component to the park. About that same time the property adjacent to the park went up for sale and the city purchased the acreage complete with another barn. “For the next two years

a task force, which included area neighbors and representatives of the equestrian community, youth sports, the historical society and city staff, developed a master plan for Walnut Grove Park,” she said. “By 2005 the park was revitalized and the San Marcos Historical Society established Heritage Park to house their research library, photos, artifacts.” Thanks to Roy and Bev

Haskins, who spearheaded the renovations of the two historical homes with the help of county grants and lots of volunteer labor, the homes were salvaged. However, the main museum for the historical society was located on San Marcos Boulevard, Brown said. In 2008, the Native Garden in Heritage Park was planted through another city volunteer event known

tot lots and play equipment; the Williams Barn which is used for weddings and large events and Heritage Park.” What makes the park truly unique? A lot she said. “I think Walnut Grove Park has something for everyone, some days it’s quiet and other days it’s buzzing with activity in every corner, a wedding or square dance, horses in the corral, sports, and a bit of living history,” she said. People also use it for other things besides touring the historic homes; fun activities are almost always going on. “We offer genealogy classes, have hosted performances, awards ceremonies, demonstrations, tea parties and during the week we host elementary students for a program called ‘Hands on History,’” she said. “We also host special events throughout the year.” It’s also great place to visit if you are interested in the history of the area, or if you recently moved to San Marcos, you might want to learn about the city’s past. “You can find out which streets are named after pioneer families, connections to famous people in history, and if you love seeing old houses, you’ll like our tour,” she said Brown herself has a long history with the organization: “I first got involved in the mid-1980s when an abandoned historical house was being vandalized. Shortly afterward it was purchased and restored, but I continued to be involved until 1991 when I went back to college and then work. Eighteen years later, after I retired, I got involved again about the same time the museum was relocating to Heritage Park and have been around ever since. “ A bit of trivia that makes the area even more special aside from the Uhland connection, Brown said, is that many years later, his grandson Bill Uhland owned the Walnut Grove, and eventually sold it to the city of San Marcos. “The park is in the Twin Oaks Valley area of San Marcos and is where the first Native American village was located over a 1,000 years ago because of the abundance of oak trees, water and flat land,” Brown said. Tours of Heritage Park begin in the Welcome Center then the Connors Hall and includes the story of San Marcos history from the earliest inhabitants in the area, the Luisenos, the Rancho Period, early European settlers through the incorporation of San Marcos as a city in 1963. The tour continues with a visit to historical homes and the native garden. Tours are offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays or by appointment for groups over six people. Tours take about one hour but can be modified to meet the audience. Admission is $3 per adult and $1 per child. For more information, visit or call (760) 744-9025.

Zoo prepares for pandas’ return to China REGION — The San Diego Zoo officially closed its panda habitat and Panda Cam on April 29 as it prepares its last two giant pandas for repatriation to China. The zoo first acquired giant pandas more than 30 years ago through a loan program with the Chinese government. The zoo’s conservation researchers have worked with the Chinese government since that time to increase the country’s giant panda population by more than 2,000 bears. The zoo originally planned to close its panda habitat and the wildly popular Panda Cam April 27. After an outpouring of support from zoo patrons, the zoo extended its farewell celebration for 27-yearold panda Bai Yun and her 6-year-old son Xiao Liwu by two days.

The two pandas are scheduled to return to China later this spring; a third panda, Gao Gao, was repatriated last October. “The panda program we began together demonstrates how powerful these collaborative efforts can be,” said San Diego Zoo Global President and CEO Douglas Myers. The zoo’s conservationists plan to work with their Chinese colleagues going forward to continue their efforts to boost the wild panda population. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has downgraded the giant panda’s threatened status from “endangered’’ to “vulnerable,’’ meaning they are less at risk of going extinct than they were before. — City News Service

New proposal emerges for public plaza in Vista By Steve Puterski

VISTA — The city is moving forward with plans to revitalize a public plaza to engage residents and create a more unique feel. The plaza, on the southeast corner of Main Street and South Indiana Avenue, is 3,000 square feet with a gazebo, benches, landscaping and parking. The city has contracted with ADL Planning Associates to develop conceptual plans to reshape the plaza, John Conley, community development director for Vista, said during the April 23 City Council meeting. Residents Dave and Julie Lowen gave a short presentation on another alternative, one to make the area a more pedestrian-friendly and possibly close down South Indiana Avenue. In short, the Lowen proposal is akin to a public plaza and town square to drive traffic to businesses, provide opportunities for those looking to start a business and options for visitors. The Lowens likened it to Santa Monica and other cities where public areas are a focal point of those cities. The council approved to bring capital improvement project with possible mods and cost estimates for evaluating the Lowen proposal. “There are a lot of us down there who’ve invested a lot in the downtown area,” Julie Lowen said. “We’re going to need more feet to get more behinds in seats.” She said it could be an opportunity zone to grow business, be a pathway to entrepreneurship and help with cleaning up the area. As such, she said she and

others would like the work with the city to explore public and private partnerships to redevelop the area. “What we are basically asking the city to do … is to start exploring those ideas,” Julie Lowen said. “We would like to develop a town square befitting of Vista and we don’t feel like the three options do that.” Mayor Julie Ritter said she loves the idea, but wasn’t sure if the city’s population could handle such a large-scale project, and wondered where the money would come from to construct it. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby said it would be better to grow into the Lowen proposal and leave the door open to re-evaluate and expand in the future. Both Ritter and Rigby supported the third option and then to possibly grow into the public square. “If we can grow it slowly and see if we activate it smaller, we can have that it mind for the future,” Ritter explained. Councilman John Franklin said the Lowen proposal has “a lot” of merit. However, he noted it is

a big proposal but worth researching and looking at whether it would be wise to spend several hundred thousand dollars for the third option and potentially regret the Lowen proposal. Franklin also asked why not take a couple months to research the Lowen proposal, especially since it appears to be a good idea. “That proposal is a good proposal,” he said. “It’s a real opportunity for beautification. What have we lost if spend a couple of months examining this? What, really, is the cost in dollars in stopping this to give consideration to this idea?” Councilwoman Corinne Contreras said she likes the Lowen proposal, but the city must move and act sooner rather than later. She preferred the third option with the turf area, saying the Lowen proposal may not be feasible along with being a multi-million-dollar project. Councilman Joe Green also had reservations about the plan, noting three business, including Belching

Beaver, were not in favor of closing the street. He said the city options are a microcosm of what the Lowes are proposing. The council as a whole also was wary of the financial implications, each member noting how and where the money would be generated or secured to invest in such a project. “My feeling … is that we go with option C and that we look at that Vista Town Square Public Market as a long-term option,” Green said. “For us to stop all we’ve done at this point … would be irresponsible.” One plan calls for doubling the size of the plaza to 6,000 square feet by removing some surface parking in the adjacent public lot, but adding angled parking on both roads, which would increase the total parking spaces by five from 35 to 40. “Staff has looked at this area in terms of increasing the usable space,” Conley said. “We are looking at this site plan in terms of expanding usable space by shifting parking to Main Street.” However, feedback from the city’s outreach to nearby businesses had the city come back two additional plans, including one with a turf field for kids to play and an arts sculpture and garden. A community meeting last year revealed residents and businesses preferred the third option, which features the turf area, Conley said. However, on Feb. 25 the Parks and Recreation Commission preferred the first plan, noting the site should not cater to children. “They felt it should be more adult-oriented,” Conley said.

Book probes environmental impacts on Native Americans By Steve Horn

drinking water under both Lake Oahe and the Missouri River, and those who opposed the project called themselves Water Protectors. Gilio-Whitaker wrote that she chose that example, in particular, because it highlighted the historical and social dynamics she would explore throughout the rest of her book. Dakota Access started “from the assumption Giliothat colonizaWhitaker tion was not just a process of invasion and eventual domination of Indigenous populations ... but also that the eliminatory impulse and structure it created in actuality began as environmental injustice,” she wrote. “Seen in this light, settler colonialism itself is for Indigenous peoples a structure of environmental injustice.” Beyond a detailed focus on the role the U.S. government has played in what she has described as the “environmental deprivation” of its native population, Gilio-Whitaker also focuses her lens on a lesser known history of the U.S. environmental conservation movement. That movement, she writes in the book, has roots in dispossessing land once occupied by indigenous populations. In particular, she argues, the creation of the U.S. national parks system has roots in that dispossession. Gilio-Whitaker said that she believes non-Native individuals in the U.S. must develop an awareness of “settler privilege” that they possess. She said so in paying homage to the famous scholarly essay arguing that “white privilege” exists, by scholar Peggy McIntosh. “What does white privilege look like through the lens of settler-colonialism?” Gilio-Whitaker asked rhetorically in explaining the concept. “It looks like settler privilege. But what is settler privilege? What that infers is that it’s always about — land.”


ity for the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) is estimated at $8.5 million for FY 2019-20, she added. By 2023-24, the payment is expected to reach about $11.2 million. “Those costs are still a burden on the city and something we have to manage,” Zimmermann added. “We’ve done a lot of things to manage our pension system.” The city’s unemployment as of November 2018 was at 3.4%, which is 0.3% lower than the state average. As a result of the economic boom over the past several years, Vista’s emergency reserve account is at more than $21.7 million, or 30% of the city’s operating budget.

SAN MARCOS — Dina Gilio-Whitaker, an adjunct professor of American Indian Studies at Cal State University San Marcos, has released a new book on the history of environmental justice through a Native American lens. In “As Long as Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice, from Colonization to Standing Rock,” she argues that the history of environmental impacts on the native population of the U.S. coincides with colonial expansion and displacement. Gilio-Whitaker outlined some of the arguments, read passages from the book and fielded questions at an April 23 event at CSUSM’s Kellogg Library. During the talk — convened by the American Indian Student Alliance, California Indian Culture and Sovereignty Center and the American Indian Studies Department — Gilio-Whitaker said she hopes her research reframes how the public discusses environmental justice issues as they relate to Native Americans. Specifically, she has argued for a scholarly framework called “indigenized environmental justice.” “What I mean by that is that environmental justice theory and frameworks need to … expand beyond the concept of racism,” she said. “It needs to acknowledge the history of colonization as a historical process of dispossession of native peoples and their lands in order to understand the way native people are still fighting these battles.” A descendant of the Colville Confederated Tribes, Gilio-Whitaker commutes to teach at CSUSM from her home in San Clemente. She also works as the policy director and senior researcher CROP at the Center for World Indigenous Studies and .93 runs a consulting firm, .93Consulting.

partment, two ambulance chassis and 13 cardiac monitors, which are planned capital expenditures. The city will spend $49.8 million in 2019-20 and $51.7 million in 202021. As for the total revenue projections, Zimmermann said the city can expect $82.3 million in 2019-20 and $83.5 in the 2020-21. Sales tax is projected at $18.6 million in 2019-20 and $19 million in 2020-21. “Our highest revenue item is property tax,” Zimmermann said. “Those have increased a little bit due to movement in the housing market.” The city’s responsibil-

A lot of history in one day in Arizona


isiting central Arizona can be a lesson in contrasting civilizations, both in time and culture. On one hand, there are Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot national monuments, both providing glimpses into Southwestern civilizations that thrived between the 11th and 15th centuries. The inhabitants of these communities lived off the land and local rivers and had few personal possessions, creating virtually no waste and leaving nothing behind but the walls and windows of their homes. e’louise ondash On the other hand, there are historic Jerome and its little suburb, Haynes, both re-populated, re-purposed mining towns of the 19th and 20th centuries that are packed with paraphernalia of the past and present. Seeing all four in one-day makes for an interesting, educational and fun-filled road trip.

hit the road

MASSIVE QUANTITIES of rusted farming and mining equipment, auto and machine parts, household items and anything ever made of metal have found a home at the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town, formerly Haynes, Arizona. In the late 1800s, a mining company dug a shaft hoping to find copper; instead it discovered gold. The mine, still visible, is 1,270 feet deep. It closed in 1914. More at

THE HISTORIC MINING town of Jerome sits on the side of Cleopatra Hill at 5,200 feet in central Arizona. It was copper that drew fortune seekers to the area in 1876, and organized mining began in 1883. Mining ceased in 1918 when an uncontrolled fire burned through the 88 miles of tunnels under the town. Open-pit mining followed; these mines finally closed in 1953. Most of Jerome’s 15,000 people left, and squatters and artists found a home there in the ’60s and ’70s. Thanks to the Jerome Historical Society, many of the buildings have been preserved. Today Jerome is bustling with visitors who can spend the day learning about the town’s history at the society’s mining museum; perusing the many boutiques; enjoying everything from cowboy grub to fine dining; and taking in the view.

WALLS BUILT between 1000 and 1400 by the Southern Sinagua, early inhabitants of Arizona’s aptly named Verde Valley, still stand high on a ridge in central Arizona. Called Tuzigoot, which in the Apache language means “crooked water,” the village housed up to 200 people in up to 87 rooms. Tuzigoot has been designated a national monument.

his is one of those “couldn’t happen to a nicer guy” announcements. San Diego Magazine coordinates all its resources annually in a comprehensive polling of “best” categories in San Diego County. According to its readers and website followers, Gianni Buonomo has been voted in as Best San Diego Winery. Taste of Wine and Food has written a number of times on this vibrant fouryear-old winery located in the Ocean Beach district of San Diego. Owner Keith Rolle caught our attention some eight years ago, after he started making his Gianni Buonomo wines in San Diego with grapes from Washington state. They were delicious high quality varietals from the getgo. Some 14 varietals are now on his wine menu and recently the awards have been rolling in.

THE WINNER of the annual San Diego Magazine reader poll for Best San Diego Winery is Gianni Buonomo, owned and operated by Keith Rolle. Photo by Rico Cassoni

The latest win on his wine was the 2014 Charbono red. The prestigious San Francisco Chronicle competition presented this wine a Double Gold Medal. On being the top winery in San Diego, Rolle, who makes all his wines, had this to say. “With over 100 wineries in this region, I’m humbled to receive all this recognition in only our fourth year of operation. The San Diego wine scene is thriving right now and we’re excited to help bolster

its growth.” On bringing in grapes from the Northwest, he stated that “the natural acidity of Washington fruit is the game changer. Up there, we’re able to get more hang time without having to worry too much about getting raisins or losing the acid. This allows for denser and more complex flavors to develop while still maintaining balance.” Congratulations to Rolle and his team at Gianni Buonomo. Visit at

s I’ve mentioned in the past, Lick the Plate takes me back and forth between San Diego, Detroit and Northern Michigan on a regular basis. They are three drastically different regions and it’s those differences I thrive on. that That said, with the advent of a “foodie” culture, besides the obvious dishes native to the regions like fish tacos and coney dogs, you can find gastro pubs, public houses, sushi joints and local craft beer galore in all three areas. One culinary distinction found in Southeast Michigan, and one that is gaining popularity outside of the area, is Detroit-style pizza. And just my luck, Benito’s, one of my favorite Detroit pizza joints, has opened a Benito’s Café in downtown Oceanside where they do a whole lot more than pizza. More on that later, first let me give you a brief description and history on this fabulous pie. In essence, a Detroit-style pie is a rectangular pizza, with a slightly thick, crunchy crust that is very crispy on the sides and bottom. Some Detroit shops have the toppings and the cheese baked into it and the sauce on top. The one thing they all have in common is the metal pan that originated from scrap metal drip trays during World War II and found new life after as pizza pans. The iconic, definitive caramelized corners of the crust can be directly attributed to that style of pan. I tend to avoid some pizza crust but it is one of the best parts of Benito’s Detroit-style pie. It’s a hearty, filling pizza that is as good hot as it is cold the next day, which is my ultimate test of

a pizza. OK, enough about the Detroit-style pizza as it should be noted that Benito’s has a lot of different pizza selections to choose from. Hand-tossed round, thin crust, deep dish and Neapolitan inspired brick oven pizzas are also available. You can build your own with the usual toppings or get fancy with some prosciutto, hot capicola, zucchini, eggplant, portobello mushrooms, roasted garlic, sautéed spinach, goat cheese and more. Sizes range from a 9-inch personal to a 24-inch Big Benito. Specialty pies include the Hawaiian, BBQ Chicken, Big Meal, Deluxe or Chicken Supreme or vegetarian with the Mediterranean, Vegetarian or Spinach Supreme. And if that is not enough pizza options they offer up the brick oven menu. Those pizzas are baked directly on a hot stone, which gives an authentic Italian pizza made from imported Italian caputo flour and layered with fresh Italian tomato, alfredo or

creamy pesto sauce. So needless to say, if you have several different tastes in pizza styles in your household, Benito’s has one to satisfy each of those desires. Besides the pizza, there is an extensive menu to choose from that includes one of my favorites when I’m in Detroit, their pizza sub. I get it with extra cheese and well done for a bit more crunch. They have a whole lineup of oven-baked subs, calzones, wings, pastas, salads, soups and sides. All of their sauces are original recipes and made in-house. They offer pasta marinara or meat sauce, Fettuccini Alfredo, Creamy Pesto Spaghetti, Tomato Blush Penne and Mac & Cheese Cellentani. It was also a treat to see that Benito’s offers genuine Broaster Chicken, which is another touch of Detroit that was made popular by the Chicken Shack chain there. Broasted chicken is battered and cooked in oil as well, but then it’s deep fried in a pressure cooker and that instantly locks in TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 13

A superbloom of craft breweries across North County craft beer in North County Bill Vanderburgh


ixty of San Diego’s 158 breweries and 46 satellite tasting rooms are in The Coast News’ coverage area. The newest is Guadalupe Brewing’s tasting room in downtown Vista, which just opened on April 20. (You can see the full list of breweries and tasting rooms at my blog, Thirteen additional breweries and tasting rooms are in planning for North County, too. Chances seem good that about 10 of them will open before the end of 2019, bringing the total to 70. That might seem like a lot of craft beer locations, but it is equivalent to one location for about every 11,700 inhabitants in The Coast News coverage area. (By the end of 2019, it will be closer to one for every 9,700 residents.) That per capita rate doesn’t take into account all the visitors to the region who also help us drink our beer.

Benito’s Oceanside location is owned and operated by Benito and his three sons, Jason, Mauro and Michael Mautone, who all grew up in the business in Detroit. Benito immigrated from Palinuro, Italy, when he was 18 and in 1979 opened his first Benito’s location in Michigan. They have since grown Benito’s into a multi-unit pizzeria brand with over 20 units. The Oceanside location was an easy choice because of the beautiful building with its original exposed highbeam wooden ceiling and mural that pay homage to Benito’s hometown in Italy. The front door rolls up for that indoor outdoor vibe in the heart of downtown on Mission and its bustling restaurant scene. Benito’s also has a custom, 10-tap beer tower stocked with a nice selection of craft beers; an imported Italian wine se-

Diego County and the ninth largest craft brewery in the country, according to the Brewers Association’s most recent ranking of breweries based on volume of production in 2018. Stone draws a huge number of beer tourists from around the globe to its World Bistro and Gardens at its Escondido headquarters. Other old favorites of beer aficionados, such as Lost Abbey (in San Marcos) and Pizza Port (founded in Solana Beach and now with five locations, three of which are in North County), have been joined by newer ventures that are also drawing a lot of attention, such as

Burgeon (Carlsbad), Bagby (Oceanside), and Wild Barrel (San Marcos). Together, the concentration of high-quality craft breweries in San Diego fully justifies the moniker “The Capital of Craft.” The reputation of San Diego breweries draws tourists from around the world. Beer vacations — or “beer-cations” as they are sometimes known — help add to our local economy.

Research and Analysis at California State University, San Marcos. The number of breweries and the total volume of beer produced has only increased since 2017, so the current value of craft beer to the region is undoubtedly higher now. Differences in local policies have a significant impact on where breweries and tasting rooms are located. While San Marcos has nine breweries, Encinitas has just three tasting rooms and no breweries. Encinitas has 70% of the population of San Marcos but only 30% as many beer locations per capita. Vista has 20 breweries and tasting rooms, or one for every 4,701 people, making it about four times more brewery-dense than Encinitas and more than seven times more brewery-dense than Escondido. That means Escondido is missing out on economic benefits, not to mention making it harder for its residents and visitors to enjoy a very popular pastime. Some people worry that the craft beer market is oversaturated. It is true that there is more competition than before, but the rate of closures among breweries and tasting rooms in San Diego is still far lower than that for bars and restaurants. Nationally, only 13.2% of the beer consumed is craft beer,

with most of the rest still being “American adjunct light lager” produced by international conglomerates. Given that fact, there is still plenty of room for craft breweries who make quality beer and have a smart plan for reaching new customers. A recent report from the Brewers Association, a trade group that represents small independent brewers, shows that nationally craft beer sales grew by 4% by volume in 2018, despite the overall beer sector being down 1%. Small and independent breweries now account for 13.2% of the volume of beer sold in the U.S. In dollar figures, however, since craft

beer is normally sold at higher prices than mass-produced beer, these small independent breweries now own a 24.1% market share. The number of craft breweries in the U.S. reached an all-time high in 2018: 1,049 new craft breweries opened and 219 closed, bring the total to 7,346 on a net growth rate of 13.2%. San Diego, a more mature craft beer market than most other parts of the country, experienced a more modest net growth rate of 2% in 2018: 22 breweries closed and 25 opened. However, there was a 40% increase in the number of satellite tasting rooms.

Hormone Replacement Therapy: Looking at it with fresh eyes By Jeffrey Pearson, D.O., F.A.O.A.S.M.

For decades, physicians and patients alike have been fearful of HRT, the logic being that – “if hormones are safe, then why do our bodies stop producing them? Clearly, they must turn evil after a certain age.” Alas, that is not true and enlightened physicians do their patients a service by recommending them for their patients at the appropriate time. HRT is a means of replacing something necessary that gets lost. Best example would be an automobile – while it requires fuel to run, it also requires oil in the engine in order to prevent it from breaking down. Oil doesn’t suddenly “turn bad” after the first 100,000 miles. Neither do our hormones turn bad after a certain age. While we run on food for fuel, our bodies require hormones to keep parts in repair. What is a hormone? It’s a chemical messenger wherein a gland tells another part of the body to do something. Most people are familiar with insulin (which regulates sugars and fat) and thyroid hormone (which regulates metabolism). Likewise, estrogen and testosterone perform important func-

tions in our bodies (and incidentally, men and women produce BOTH of these). Yes, our bodies do stop making these latter two hormones usually in our early 50’s (some earlier, some later). However, it is NOT because they suddenly “turn evil.” Rather, it’s due to the simple fact that 100 years ago, we were dead. Think about it. A white female baby born in 1910 had a life expectancy of 52 years of age, a white male baby lived an average of 49 years. Blacks fared much worse. Remember: they did not have antibiotics nor any good treatments for high blood pressure or cancer. People died early and often, hence we didn’t see cataract, joint replacements or other surgeries because our bodies weren’t around long enough to wear out. Thanks to science – the discoveries of antibiotics and treatments for other diseases, we’ve extended the lifespan for both men and women by 30 years. However, this is artificial life extension and not due to natural evolution. So, while we have the ability to prolong life into the 80’s, 90’s and even 100’s, without a body’s hormones, our bodies continue to break

WITHOUT HORMONES, our bodies continue to break down after a certain age.

down. Look around and you can see the result of this – elderly men and women with spine changes causing them to hunch forward, among other things. And, it’s totally preventable. Everyone is familiar with the more common complaints of women going through “the change” – hot flashes, sleep problems, mood changes, for example. These are generally transient lasting months to a few years. The old doctor’s advice was “Don’t worry, dearie, you’ll get over them.” However, the primary benefit to HRT is long-

term protection against the body’s eventual breakdown. In women, hormones keep the “soft and squishy parts” soft and squishy. Without estrogen, women’s bodies do not absorb calcium from the gut leading to osteoporosis (leading to fractures of spine, hips and wrists most commonly). Estrogen, when started at menopause, helps protect women from heart disease and some studies suggest that they might help stave off Alzheimer’s. Testosterone has responsibilities for energy and endurance in men. In

we were to smear estrogen onto a breast or testosterone onto a prostate that they would induce cancerous changes. For example, it’s well established that the men with the highest levels of testosterone never develop prostate cancer at the time – those, of course are teenage boys. And, furthermore, it’s the men with the lowest levels of testosterone who fare far poorer if they do develop prostate cancer. However, if a breast or prostate were to develop a mutation that went on to become cancer, then HRT probably is not a good idea for those people. That’s an important distinction. In other words, hormones most likely do not cause cancer, but if a cancer were already to be present, they may feed them. (end of part 1 of article series)

Walk honors organ donors By Aaron Burgin

REGION — It’s sometimes called the longest walk a family can ever take — the several hundred feet between a hospital intensive care unit and an operating room where their family member will become an organ donor. Tri-City Medical Center has implemented a program to make that walk a little easier on the surviving family. It is called the “Honor Walk.” All available hospital employees line the hospital hallway from the patient’s room in the ICU to the operating room, standing in solemn silence in a show of solidarity with the surviving family — with their permission, of course — as nurses slowly wheel the patient along the procession route of sorts. Hospitals across the country since 2018 have adopted the walk as a dignified way of honoring the sacrifices of both the donor and their families. Tri-City says that it is the first hospital countywide to host the ceremony. Employees are not required to participate, but in the two walks that the hospital has performed since starting the program, hospital staff has come out in force. “In their own way, these people are heroes, they are saving people’s lives,” said

Merebeth Richins, Tri-City’s ICU, Telemetry and Pulmonary Services director. Richins oversees the hospital’s organ donation efforts in partnership with Lifesharing, a state-authorized nonprofit organization that manages the organ, eye and tissue donor registry and raises awareness of the need for more people to sign up to become organ donors. “They are giving the gift of life to others who have been waiting years for a heart, lung or kidney,” Richins said. The idea of beginning Honor Walks at Tri-City Medical Center was introduced by hospital staff members after learning about walks at other hospitals at a conference in January. The hospital hosted its first pair of walks in March and April for a man and woman donor respectively. Richins said that in the case of the man, his mother played his favorite song along the processional route to the operating room. “It makes me cry when I think about it,” Richins said. “We’re trying to show them respect. It’s really just amazing.” Organ donors fill a critical health care need, as more than 113,000 people are on the transplant waiting list in the United States, 2,000 of them living in San Diego and Imperial counties. Organ donation organizations estimate that 18 peo-

ple per day will die waiting for a donor organ. The honor walk is one of several programs Tri-City has implemented to recognize organ donors and their surviving families while raising the profile of the need of organ donors locally. April is celebrated as national “Donate Life Month”, and Tri-City hosts a flag-raising ceremony where they invite donor families to attend. This flag raising ceremony is dedicated to the thousands of donor heroes from Tri-City who have given the gift of life and healing to others. During the month of April the hospital also hosts a Blue and Green Day where employees are encouraged to wear these colors for bringing awareness to registering to become an organ donor. Blue and green are the colors in the Donate Life California logo. And during the holidays, they adorn a tree with ornaments from every donor family at the hospital. “We’re bringing attention to the importance of being a donor, but also hopefully bringing a small sense of closure to the family,” said Celia Garcia, a spokeswoman with the public hospital. “Making them feel that while the tragedy did occur, it did bring some peace to another family, and that may help them through their grieving process.”

But the film’s strongest message, the three said, is not looking at Ignacio Alcala as an immigrant, but rather as a man, husband, father and dedicated person paving a better path for him and his family. “His story is so unique,” Odalis Ramirez said. “He really, truly embodies ‘El Sueño Americano.’ When I heard his story and what he had to overcome and where he is now, it was so inspirational. We wanted to capture and put it in the limelight that he is one of many immigrants, but is making something of his life.” Melissa Ramirez said Ignacio Alcala’s best quality was his drive to further his education no matter the obstacles in front of him. The deeper message, she said, is “if he can do it, so can we,” thus providing inspiration to others and showing no matter the diffi-

Orenich started with a small darkroom in his garage and blossomed into a fine-art photographer with impressionable skills and an accomplished eye for composition. There are very few spots on our planet that Orenich, his camera, and his passion for creating compelling images have not traveled. Elements of nature, common to our lives can be transformed to creative imagery. Orenich’s latest exhibit, “Face of Humanity,” is a view into the people, the culture and country of Tibet. In this amazing exhibition, you will find a photographic journey of a culture on the brink of extinction. Its breathtaking vistas, monasteries, and spiritual culture being subject to 60 years of occupation. Orenich traveled to the end of world, endured outlandish conditions, along with unimaginable situations in order to give us the scenery of a century. Enduring altitudes to over 19,000 feet and sub-zero temperatures gave a real appreciation to the resilience of the Tibetan people. “I can say it was a life experience to be with these people, how they live, the welcoming of their culture”.

Adventures in babysitting

1 killed, 3 injured in rollover SAN MARCOS — A rollover crash in an open area in San Marcos on April 21 left one person dead, a sheriff’s deputy said. It happened in a hilly area west of North Twin Oaks Valley Road and north of Bel Esprit Circle, in an area where a single-family homes abut open chaparral. It wasn’t clear how the single vehicle involved in the accident ended up in the area it was found in, San Diego sheriff’s Lt. Chris May said — it may have been driving off-road, or could have somehow come off a nearby street or driveway, although it appears most of the open area is uphill from nearby roadways. A passenger in the Chevrolet truck involved in the crash called 911 just before 8 a.m. and told dispatchers the driver of the pickup was trapped inside the overturned vehicle, San Diego sheriff’s Sgt. Nicholas Maryn said. All four occupants of the truck, including the driver, were taken to Palomar Medical Center. The driver, a 25-year-old man, died of his injuries at the hospital, Maryn said. The rest of the people in the pickup were all men aged 25 to 26, and all had moderate but non-life-threatening injuries, the deputy said. Alcohol was a suspected factor in the crash, according to Maryn. — City News Service

USPS launches cactus stamp series at Palomar College succulent garden By Steve Horn

SAN MARCOS — The U.S. Postal Service unveiled a new succulent-themed stamp series on April 15 at a press event held at its succulent garden situated at Palomar College’s San Marcos campus. The USPS has printed the stamps as part of its Cactus Flowers Forever stamp series. Sold in books of 20, two of the species featured on the stamp set dwell in the succulent garden. At the press event, officials representing both USPS and Palomar College spoke about the new stamps. In her remarks, Lisa Baldwin, USPS San Diego Postmaster and master of ceremonies for the unveiling, praised the beauty of

the garden in introducing the stamp series. “Cacti in bloom have been described as ‘Mother Nature’s fireworks,’” Baldwin said. “We would like thank Palomar College for hosting this stamp unveiling within their celebrated cactus and succulent garden. The opportunity to showcase both the new Cactus Flowers stamps and the amazing horticulture found in these gardens was a perfect match.” Palomar College President Joi Lin Blake called the garden, open by appointment only due to its possession of a host of rare and endangered species, a hidden gem in the area. “This small garden, less than one acre in size, may be the most unique spot on the San Marcos campus; certainly, it is the college’s best-kept secret,” she said. “In fact, this small garden may be the most unique sanctuary of its kind in San Diego County.” Ethel Kessler, art director for USPS, designed the stamps via existing photographs taken by John P. Schaefer. Schaefer, the president emeritus of University of Arizona, was a friend and colleague of the

late naturalist photographer Ansel Adams. Kessler’s art, she explains on her website, aims to tell “America’s story.” "There is something extraordinarily fulfilling knowing that the talents, intuitions, and strategies you have nurtured over many years contribute to the success of your local and global community," says Kessler on her design firm’s website. "I wouldn't want it any other way." The Palomar College cactus and succulent garden has existed since 1964. Palomar College’s San Marcos campus at-large maintains the status of an arboretum, with plants and tree species lining the premises, as well as a standalone arboretum located within its epicenter. Only University of California-Davis shares an arboretum status with Palomar College among California higher education institutions. Dick Henderson, manager of the Palomar College succulent garden, maintains it on a voluntary basis and has done so for the past 20 years. He spends up to 20 hours per week working in the garden and offers tours by appointment.

costumes. Yet another time, most of our towels and much of the bathroom was damp after some kind of water play. I never demanded details. Tonight, for entertainment, my husband let the kids help him make a lemon meringue pie. The adorably sad result sits proudly in the refrigerator. I am later instructed by Dad that it is to be a surprise for me in the morning. No matter. My tour of the kitchen indicates that it has clearly been a multimedia event, with patient Daddy letting them help at every step. Dad gets big points when I find the pots, bowls, spoons, whisks, spatulas and mixer attachments actually soaking in the sink. My foot does, however, stick soundly to several spots on the floor just near the stove. I suspect much tasting and spilling took place. I chose not to check the ceiling for egg whites. I move on to the family room and find sticky little bowls and utensils, licked nearly clean. I give thanks that the furniture has remained in its regular spot. Upstairs, both children’s beds are littered with books, crayons, paper, stickers, stamps, dolls, games and clothes. Bedtime was clearly the second act of a terrific evening of children’s theater. I am optimistic that their toothbrushes are wet (although they may have used them to wash the teddy bear’s ears for all I know). Dad, or “Mr. Yes” as I like to call him, (his children have never heard him say “no”) has given them a night of sustained indulgence. As I get busy tidying up, I can’t help but smile. I had a lovely evening out, but I’m not at all sure I had more fun than they did.

ad babysat tonight. Perhaps that isn’t the politically correct way to characterize it. Dad was at home with his children tonight, completely responsible for their entertainment, and worse, their bedtime. I will first say that I was grateful to him, as his schedule does not provide this luxury too often. It took me awhile to get where I could enjoy spending an evening out by myself, but we are finally there. At last, everyone seems to look forward to my departure. Second, I will say that I was surprised and thrilled when I got home after 11 p.m. and found the youngsters in bed and asleep. I believe it was a first. They must have been tired. My kids can match any sitter for the night-watch detail. There is nothing quite as deflating as finding two happy little faces peering over the banister, after I have stayed out late with my women friends, talking, drinking wine and relaxing. It means that I didn’t miss much. When Dad stays home, I save the price of a sitter, but I pay the price in chaos. I begin to tally the bill immediately upon returning home, flipping on the kitchen light to survey the damage. Dear ol’ Dad never gives in to the temptation of television. He prefers to find something that everyone can participate in. The resulting mayhem can be startling. One night it was a complete rearrangement of all the furniture to create a lengthy gymnastic arena.

Ups and downs will keep you busy this year. The pendulum will swing, and you’ll need to stand on guard and be ready to take advantage or dismiss whatever comes your way. It will be an exciting and exhausting time to test your skills and see how well you operate while dealing with unpredictable circumstances. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even the playing field by setting a high standard and weeding out those who cannot compete. Much can be accomplished if you are passionate and persistent. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you size up your situation and what you want to accomplish, you will avoid some of the pitfalls that others put in your way. Focus and stamina will lead to success. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Change may not be what you want, but it may be what you need. Consider what’s being offered as well as the potential gains involved. Make your final decision based on truth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Lock in your position and put your plan in place. Once you establish what you want, it will be difficult for anyone to interfere. Make your own opportunities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Embrace change and set your course. Having a destination in mind will help you avoid unnecessary surprises that could slow

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Taking short trips, spending time with interesting people who motivate you to be your best, and making personal gains should be your focus. Romance will enhance your life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- People change, and so do you. Allowing others to grow will also encourage you to expand your interests and gain perspective on what you want to do moving forward.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Personal relationships, home and domestic projects, and self-improvement are highlighted. A challenge will enrich your mind, body and soul. Adjustments at home will promote romance or stronger family ties.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Leave nothing to chance. If you want things to unfold with ease, preparation and organization will be necessary. An emotional situation should not be put on display.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A challenge will do you good. Be open to suggestions, but in the end, do what feels right. Attending social events will be informative and will encourage a closer bond with someone special. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Consider how to best help others without being used or taken for granted. Overspending, overdoing and overindulging will not solve problems or improve important relationships. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t let anyone limit what you can do. An open mind and willingness to put your energy where it counts will lead to decisions, improvements and gains that will change your life.

real estate documents. Nonetheless, the Cherry Hills Village City Council voted unanimously on April 16 to change the neighborhood’s name from Swastika Acres to Old Cherry Hills. Councilman Dan Sheldon explained that the name came from the Denver Land Swastika Co., which divided the land into plots in the early 20th century, before the Nazis appropriated the symbol: “There was nothing wrong with (the name) at that time,” Sheldon told KDVR-TV. Only one resident opposed the name change, Sheldon said. “She thought it was important to preserve that historical value of that symbol ... even though she herself lost family members in the Holocaust.” [KDVR, 4/16/2019]

Crème de la Weird In St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, Lucas Dawe, 20, appeared in court on April 11 to face charges of possessing stolen skeletal remains. According to court documents reported by The Chronicle Herald, Dawe is suspected of stealing a skeleton, estimated to be more than 100 years old, from the All Saints Parish cemetery. The skeleton was found along a walking trail on April 6, and police were led to Dawe after an anonymous witness reported seeing him licking the bones. He was also charged with interfering with human remains, after he was accused of boiling the bones and drinking the Florida. Some days everything water. [Chronicle Herald, goes right.

Diaz told the officers she didn’t know Willis but had seen him earlier on her street. Willis told the officers he woke up that morning at that location, inside a vehicle, but he wasn’t sure if it was the Jeep or a minivan also parked there. He knocked on the door of the house, but when no one answered, he took the Jeep to look for his phone, which was missing. The deputies arrested Willis for grand theft of a motor vehicle; Willis also had a suspended license, for which he received a traffic citation. [Miami Herald, 4/5/2019]

Latest Religious Messages Over Easter weekend, hundreds of people visited a gum tree in a suburb of Perth, Australia, after the tree appeared to start “weeping” on Good Friday, which the faithful took to be a divine sign. For three days, the tree continued to leak water from a branch stump, provoking people to drink the “holy” water and bathe

in it. “What made it exciting yesterday, a man decided to take all his clothes off and have a shower,” remarked neighbor Jacqui Bacich to 9News. The excitement died down after the Water Corporation discovered the tree’s roots had wrapped around a cracked iron water pipe about a foot underground, and the leaking water had slowly filled up a hollow part of the trunk.

What Goes Up ... Two years ago, 39-yearold Dion Callaway was attempting a high-speed landing after skydiving at the Cloverdale Municipal Airport in Sonoma County, California, when he shattered his left heel and eventually having to have his leg amputated below the knee. On April 21, the Santa Rosa resident was back at it, skydiving, when he lost his leg again -- his $15,000 prosthetic leg “just flew off,” Callaway told the Press Democrat. “I’ve jumped with the prosthetic before, but a rush of air got inside this time. I tried to watch where it was falling, but ... I could not keep track.” Early the next

MAY 3, 2019 morning, workers at Redwood Empire lumberyard spotted something they first thought was a soda can. Yard production manager Micah Smith said his first reaction was, “Oh, that’s not a soda can, that’s a leg ... where’s the rest?” The story ended happily after Smith called the sheriff’s office, where Callaway picked up his leg later that day. “Skydiving is my everything,” Callaway said. “I always seem to come back to it.” [Press Democrat, 4/22/2019]

... Must Come Down Members of England’s Colchester United Football Club were confused by the cheeseburger they found on the pitch at their training ground in March. “When we discovered the burger ... we weren’t quite sure what to think,” media manager Matt Hudson told Sky News. But Tom Stanniland, who was tracking the burger, knew exactly what had happened and called the club to explain. “I sent a burger into space using a weather balloon,” Stanniland said. “It had gone about 24 miles up and the weather balloon popped. It’s ... traveled over 100 miles and landed.” The burger was attached with a zip tie to a styrofoam box fitted with a GoPro camera and a tracking device. Stanniland took a bite out of the burger after retrieving it, but wasn’t impressed: “That’s not nice,” he said. [Sky News, 3/29/2019] Update The news on Easter was full of videos of the man in a bunny costume involved in a brawl in Orlando, Florida, who claimed innocence by saying he was defending a woman who had been spit on. “I am the type of person who avoids fights by any means necessary, but in that situation, I would fight any day,” 20-year-old Antoine McDonald told the media. But the Tampa Bay Times reports McDonald has a rap sheet that belies this chivalrous image. The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said McDonald is wanted in New Jersey in connection with a vehicle burglary and was a person of interest in a carjacking and two armed robberies in Florida. Police in Dover, Delaware, report arresting McDonald for two armed robberies there in 2017. No

arrests were made in the Orlando incident. [Tampa Bay Times, 4/23/2019]

News That Sounds Like a Joke In College Station, Texas, the Peach Creek Vineyard is trying out a new concept for its wine-tasting events: wine with alpacas. Teaming up with the Bluebonnet Hills Alpaca Ranch, the vineyard offers customers the chance to pet and take selfies with alpacas while sipping wine and shopping for yarn, wool or clothing. “In 24 hours, we were sold out,” vineyard owner Kenneth Stolpman told KTRK-TV. One event sold out so quickly Stolpman had to turn away more than 1,000 people. [KTRK, 4/22/2019] Family Values Police in Phoenix responding to a suspected child abuse call on April 19 arrived in time to see 27-year-old Rebecca Gonzales slap and punch her 7-yearold son in the parking lot of a Walmart store, reported ABC15-TV. The boy, according to court documents, had been at Walmart with his grandmother and was supposed to be Grandma’s lookout while she shoplifted, but Gonzales wasn’t happy with his performance. The boy, whose mouth was bleeding, told police his mother hit him because “he didn’t watch out for his grandma good enough.” Gonzales was arrested for aggravated assault. [ABC15, 4/22/2019] Police Report At a Rotterdam, New York, Walmart, two men pulled off a well-choreographed scam on April 13 that cost the store $2,000. The men purchased three laptops, for which they paid cash, according to The Daily Gazette. But after the cashier counted the money, one man asked for it back, saying he wanted to make sure he hadn’t paid too much. The other man then started dancing around the checkout area as a distraction. The thief with the money gave some of it back to the cashier, but pocketed the rest, and the clerk did not recount the cash. Police are still looking for the suspects, who were captured on surveillance video. [Daily Gazette, 4/22/2019]
