VISTA — Fire Chief Jeff Hahn joined Mayor Judy Ritter at the podium to collect two proclamations during the Sept. 12 City Council meeting. The first proclamation honored the Vista Fire Department’s 90th anniversary, while the other celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Vista Paramedic Program. Ritter explained how the Vista Fire Department is the only accredited civilian fire department in San Diego County. In the state of California, there are 17 with this accreditation and there are 239 accredited agencies of this class in the world, she said. Ritter congratulated both departments and encouraged the community to commemorate those milestones. After reading the proclamations, Ritter shared that her grandson was in the final stages of becoming a paramedic and she hoped that one day he would work in Vista. Ritter then asked Hahn to say a few words. He started by TURN TO VISTA FIRE ON 9

Eagle Scout makes local history come alive online

By Julie Gallant

SAN MARCOS — Prominent figures in society, businessmen and ordinary citizens who have helped shape San Marcos’ history over the years won’t be forgotten in a dusty archive since Eagle Scout Olivier Jamois infused them with new life online. The 18-year-old San Marcos resident and member of Boy Scouts of America Troop 709 in Vista recently earned his way to Eagle Scout by taking charge of creating a database for the San Marcos Historical Society’s website. Now researchers, families, historians, educators, genealogists and other North County residents can quickly search an alphabetical database to access historical obituaries, biographies and other articles and get copies for a fee. Dedicated to Boy Scouts for the past seven years, but a combined 12 years including his stint in Cub Scouts, Jamois said he was drawn to the Boy Scouts’ opportunities to develop communication skills, leadership skills and outdoor activities. His favorite experience with the Scouts happened three

ESCONDIDO — Like reaching the end of a treasured family photo album, the time has arrived for Jim Rauch’s reflective closure as he ends 21 years of pastoral service at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Escondido. He said his tearful goodbyes at his last worship service held on Aug. 13 at the sanctuary he helped install through fundraising more than a decade ago. Rauch, 57, says he’s long surpassed the average length of a pastor’s term, which is generally about seven or eight years, and after talking with his pastoral peer group, family members and other in his inner circle he felt he was getting a clear message from God that he should be investing more time in his family for a season. “There was a sense in which I did feel God letting me know that work at this church was coming to a conclusion,” said Rauch, who earned a Master of Divinity from the Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey in 1986. “Beyond the supernatural elements, I feel I need time to invest in my extended family.” His decision was partly spurred by the death of his father-in-law, Jim Costanza, in late 2015 due to cancer, followed by the passing of his mother, Barbara Rauch, in April 2017 due to complications from Parkinson’s disease.

years ago when he took a train to New Mexico and spent two weeks backpacking the backcountry at the Philmont Scout Ranch. But it was Jamois’ interest in computers that led him to choose the Genealogy Records project for his Eagle Scout designation. Jamois said he had completed three computer science classes at San Marcos High, including two courses offered through a

dual enrollment program in partnership with Palomar College, before he graduated in June 2017. Currently he intends to major in computer science at the University of California San Diego, which he began attending Sept. 28. His Eagle Scout project began to crystallize in the summer of 2016 when his junior year U.S. History teacher Jan Wright, who happens to be secretary of the San Marcos Historical Society, put Jamois in touch with a fellow historical society board member, President Tanis Brown. Together, Brown and Jamois narrowed Jamois’ Eagle Scout options down to three possible projects: renovating a deteriorating gazebo previously created by another Eagle Scout; creating a rainwater collection apparatus for the historical society campus; or organizing the historical society’s collection of records in an online space. “She (Brown) was really concerned that I would have one project I really liked and would enjoy doTURN TO EAGLE SCOUT ON 14

Grant will expand CSUSM Veterans Center Lifeguard receives Medal of Valor for heroic rescue SAN MARCOS — The Epstein Family Foundation has pledged $1 million in support of Cal State San Marcos’ Veterans Center, the most significant gift in support of the University’s student veterans since the donation of the center building in 2014. “This gift from the Epstein family is truly the difference between accomplishing dreams and merely imagining them,” CSUSM President Karen Haynes said. “Their philanthropy is helping to move our university and our region forward.” The Epsteins’ gift will provide funds to physically expand the existing Veterans Center and provide an endowment to fund critical programs to support veterans and their families. While a groundbreaking date for the expansion has not been set, the project is due to be completed no later than Dec. 31, 2018. “The generous grant from the Epstein family will allow us to double the size of our Veterans Center, making it a one-stop shop for benefits processing, ad-

OCEANSIDE — Lifeguard David Wilson was honored this week for a heroic water rescue that saved a life. The rescue occurred July 17, 2016. Wilson was on unit patrol at Harbor Beach tower 14 along with veteran lifeguard Mike Wagner. “It was a pretty busy day,” Wilson said. He began his day instructing students in the Junior Lifeguard Program. He then continued to put in patrol hours due to sizable summer crowds and rough seas. Earlier that afternoon he was part of several land and sea rescues, including getting a child out of a locked sweltering car. Then came a distress call about a solo jet skier crashed on the jetty at the mouth of the harbor. The location of the accident is nicknamed the “devil’s triangle” due to the dangers the rock jetty poses. Wilson responded and found the man thrown off the jet ski, semiconscious, wedged between two boulders and unable to free him-

self. He attempted to free the man as consistent sets of pounding waves hit him and the victim. While Wilson aided the victim a city harbor officer pulled up in a patrol boat and lent a hand in the difficult rescue. The two were able to put a lifejacket under the victim’s head as a buoy. To set the man free, Wilson needed to dive underwater and release the victim’s legs. Eventually the pair dislodged the man, but not without getting knocked down by waves and enduring some major scrapes from the surrounding rocks, which Wilson described as a cheese grater. “It seemed forever, we got beat up pretty well, yelling ‘brace’ between waves,” Wilson said. A city firefighter arrived and the three pulled the victim from the rocks between sets of waves, up onto a stretcher and to an awaiting air ambulance. Due to HIPPA privacy laws the name of the victim has not been released. “No doubt that without his iron effort, knowledge and skill in the ocean environment, a life would have been lost,” Capt. Bill Curtis, Oceanside Fire Department Lifeguard Division, said. “David knowingly placed himself in harm’s way with one goal and an incredible outcome.” For most the work day would end there, but Wilson showered off his cut leg and returned to duty to help with an issued code five alert. That afternoon he pulled 20 people from the harbor’s choppy waters. “It’s one of the crazier situations I’ve been in,” Wilson said. Code five rescue operations involved every lifeguard on duty. Wilson said to aid multiple people in distress his partner paddled out on a rescue board, directed a group of five people to hold on and Wilson swam two of them at a time into shore. “It was a good day with a positive outcome,” Wilson said. Despite his long day and injuries Wilson was at the Junior Lifeguard Program the following morning instructing potential future guards. The recognition ceremony for his heroism took place in Sacramento on Sept. 25. Out of 21 applicants Wilson was the only one to receive the prestigious Governor’s Public Safety Medal of Valor this year. Wilson grew up in Oceanside and has served as a city lifeguard since 2012. He just completed criminal justice studies and plans to pursue a career as a State Beach peace officer ranger/ lifeguard. He said his career path was inspired by fellow Oceanside lifeguards whose rescues have become legend. “There aren’t a lot of people in this profession who get recognized for their amazing feats,” Wilson said. “I’m beyond blessed being able to do this.”

North County residents take steps to lower risks of heart disease By Christina Macone-Greene

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Pier was the place to be on Sept. 30, when droves of North County residents took part in the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association’s Healthy For Good North County Heart and Stroke Walk. The Pacific Ocean was the perfect backdrop supplying spectacular views and ocean breezes to cool down walkers for their non-competitive 5K where everyone was a winner. Preliminary numbers show

3,300 walkers participated and $200,000 was raised. Tri-City Medical Center sponsored the free walk to raise awareness about a heart-healthy lifestyle. Monies were also raised to fuel research and fund programs for the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association. Peppered throughout the crowd were individuals wearing red and white caps, designating heart and stroke survivors. According to Eric Thompson, the se-

nior director of communications and marketing at the AHA, the caps were an important component to the 5K. Survivors are an inspiration to others. “The caps show how they (survivors) are alive today because the American Heart Association funded research, whether it be medical advances in surgery, medical advances in pharmaceuticals or medical advances in people understanding the importance of being active,” Thompson said.

Thompsons wants people to know that the purpose of the walk was to get North County residents really thinking about their heart health. Tri-City Medical Center is very focused heart health, he said, and that was why AHA and Tri-City were collaborating. While walkers took on their own 5K personal challenge, Thompson said he was hopeful that after the event people would have a clearer perspective on a number of things. “Most importantly, heart

health does start with you,” he said. “They (attendees) will be exposed to some of the things that they can do to live a healthier lifestyle, ways they can improve their heart health and the benefits of a heart-healthy lifestyle. “We really want them to understand that it’s not too late to start,” he added. “And our Heart Walk was a great way to start.” To learn more about the AHA and living a heart-healthy lifestyle, visit or call (858) 410-3827.

All-renewable power: Reachable goal for state California Focus By Thomas D. Elias Back in 2002, when California set its first statewide renewable energy goals, the petroleum industry and others said it would be impossible for 20 percent of all electricity to come from solar, wind, hydro power and other forms of green energy by 2017 — now. But that goal was achieved long ago, with the state now getting well over 25 percent of its energy from renewables, and far more on many days. Then the goal was upped under former Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to 33 percent by 2020, a mark that will easily be surpassed well in advance of the deadline. Again, that’s after industry said it would be impossible. Now those same natural gas and oil interests claim a legislative bill setting a goal of 100 percent renewables by 2045 is unattainable. The bill was held up in committee last summer, but seems certain to be back in January’s new session. This whole scenario is reminiscent of resistance steadily provided by carmakers as California gradually cut its automotive emission standards over the decades starting in the 1970s. Each time a new standard was proposed, General Motors, Ford, Toyota and others resisted, claiming they just couldn’t do it. But they did it somehow, and in the process California and the world acquired a huge fleet of hybrid, electric and plugin hybrid cars, cutting

Good bills — and good people By Marie Waldron

There are good bills amidst the hundreds of bills awaiting the Governor’s signature. Helping local school districts save for special projects or financial emergencies was impacted by a cap that was placed on school reserves in 2014. This year, I supported SB 751, by Sens. J Hill, (D–San Mateo) and Steve Glazer (D–Orinda), simplifying restrictions and exempting many districts from the cap. I joined Assemblymember Susan Eggman (D–Stockton) as co-author AB 1219 to support food deliveries to the needy by clarifying food donor laws to assure restaurants, grocers and individuals that they can donate food in good faith without fear of being sued. Streamlining California’s business licensing practices is a must, and I was pleased to support SB 182, introduced by Sen. Steven Bradford (D–Gardena). The bill simplifies licensing requirements for Lyft, Uber and other drivers who will now be allowed to obtain a single license from the jurisdiction in which they live. This eliminates any requirement to obtain additional licenses to drive passengers across boundary lines into

other jurisdictions. I also supported AB 360 to assist our veterans. The bill, introduced by Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D–Torrance), requires the State Bar Association to coordinate pro-bono civil legal assistance for veterans and their families who cannot afford legal services. My bills, including AB 4 to prevent voter fraud by requiring a voter to be notified if records are altered online, and AB 1386, raising awareness of the importance of speaking to a genetic counselor for newly diagnosed breast or ovarian cancer patients to help focus treatment options, are also positive bills. The Legislature reconvenes on Jan. 3, and I’m looking forward to another busy, productive year serving you in Sacramento.

Difference makers

Our wonderful 75th Assembly district is chock full of amazing people who make a difference in the lives of others every day. Here are just some examples. • Angel Society of Fallbrook funded through the Angel Thrift Shop downtown, has provided over $3.6 million in grants since 1978, including $50,000 for library reconstruction. Last year’s philanthropy totaled

a record $178,150 to support seven elementary and a dozen high school programs and included 27 scholarships. Funds were also awarded to nearly 30 non-profits and other worthy causes including programs for military families, canine companions and San Diego Rescue Mission. • Formed in 2009 by realtors and related businesses, Valley Center Community Aid Group (VCCAG) has provided over $120,000 in scholarships to students bound for college or trade/ technical schools. People unable to afford a new roof, a utility bill or a loved one’s funeral, have been helped by VCCAG. • Solutions for Change in Vista serves homeless families throughout North County and beyond and is leading a national movement to lift the homeless from dependency to independence. Success stories of solving family homelessness and helping veterans getting back into a fulfilling life abound through counseling, transitional housing and career/work experience. Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, San Marcos and Vista.

A friend once told me, that if you're not at the table, you’re on the menu. I was disappointed my colleagues supported the bill designed to restructure SANDAG (AB 805). This bill has little to do with fixing internal issues, which is currently being addressed by their board. But, it does have everything to do with jurisdictional control and power. The bill is currently waiting for the governor’s signature or veto. If this bill becomes law, control over SANDAG’s related items, and particularly transportation, shifts to the hands of the cities of San Diego and Chula Vista. There is no other county in California where this much power has been consolidated in the hands of the larger entities. The smaller cities will lose meaningful input and their basic reason for existence on SANDAG. This would be like smaller states giving all of its power to the bigger states. Should the U.S. Senate be reduced to only New York and California? The whole

idea of a bicameral legislature is that the House is weighted by population, while the Senate is equal vote for all states. NO other city in the county except those that benefit, Chula Vista and San Diego, supports this bill. The current dual voting methodology at SANDAG was effected by SANDAG member agencies in the early 2000s to balance the influence of the larger and smaller jurisdictions and recognize the population differences between local municipalities. The new bill will make the smaller agencies irrelevant on countywide transportation planning and funding. This is a massive overreach from Sacramento modifying local, regional decision-making. Most people will agree that this bill was driven by partisan politics. The problem is that every partisan person within Encinitas and other small cities loses their place at the table. Mark Muir is a member of the Encinitas City Council

also need to develop better battery technology to store power produced by solar and wind facilities and not let it dissipate before it can be added to the overall power grid. And when the clean-power goals become reality, excess solar capacity could be re-purposed and used the way “peaker” power plants are now — fired up during times of the heaviest electricity use on the hottest summer days when the grid is taxed nearly to its capacity. The benefits, besides fighting climate change at a time when President Trump’s administration seems to want to encourage it, include things like tens of thousands of new jobs, less smog, less carbon pollution and more diversity in overall energy supplies, making California less and less dependent on foreign sources. This will come about through massive building projects, a process now well under way as the state has more than doubled renewable energy installations over the last four years, according to the California Energy Commission. Like zero emission electric and hydrogen cars, 100 percent renewable energy is an idea whose time has plainly come, no matter what the owners and fuelers of increasingly outmoded traditional energy sources may claim.

gasoline consumption and cleaning many thousands of tons of smog from the air. There’s absolutely no reason to believe things will be any different in electricity generating than they have been with cars. Rather, there’s room for a lot of optimism. For example, long before the deadline for 50 percent of power to come from green sources, California in May experienced several days when more than 60 percent of its electricity came from such places. This figure did not even include energy from hydroelectric dams, one of the greenest of power sources. That period of sunny days enabling full use of both solar thermal arrays and photovoltaic panels demonstrated that the 2020 goal is well within reach and will be achieved despite all the industry whining when the goal was set. Another milestone came on March 11, when for a span of three hours, solar power alone met about half of all electricity demand across the state. All this makes it wholly sensible for the Legislature to adopt the 100 percent-renewables-by-2045 standard. The bill, sponsored by Democratic state Senate President Pro-Tem Kevin de Leon passed the Senate before getting delayed in the Assembly, where industry pressure can be stronger and more effective. One objection is that green energy often costs more than conventional power produced in California mainly from gas-fired generating plants. This is correct, but costs figure to drop as the scale of renewable energy production increases. The state will

Vista monthly dance inspires adults with special needs By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — On the second Saturday of every month, teens and adults with developmental disabilities find a haven at the Gloria McClellan Adult Activity & Resource Center in Vista. Music fills the main room and everyone has the freedom of self-expression through the love of dance. The nonprofit organization InnerDancer Performing Arts champions this event. Its founder, Caroline Bossmeyer, is a former professional dancer with the Royal Academy of Dance. She earned her dance certification from the Royal Academy of London in 1991. After years

of formally teaching her students ballet, Bossmeyer desired change. It was time to give back. In 2009, InnerDancer Performing Arts was born. The nonprofit guides those with special needs an adaptive way to dance. “Dance is nonverbal, so I teach people to hear the song in the music,” she said. “That is huge because then anyone can move to music. It is inherent in us — we have our heartbeat, which is like a drumbeat.” At these monthly dances, and even through her instruction at InnerDancer and dance productions, Bossmeyer teaches that dancing does not have

“I consider all the people I teach as angels,” she said. Bossmeyer’s husband, Tom, is known as the director of fun. He’s also their trusty disc jockey. According to Tom, the monthly dances gives those with special needs

“The dance is special because there are limited recreational opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities,” Meester said. “It provides a safe, comfortable place to not only practice your dance moves but also social skills for group settings.” Meester went on to say the monthly Vista dance is very affordable at $12 and provides two hours of fun, physical movement, socialization and snacks.

San Marcos firefighters to team with trauma program volunteers SAN MARCOS — Trauma Intervention Programs of San Diego announces a new partnership with San Marcos Fire Department. The fire department joins the more than 30 neighboring agencies affiliated with the Trauma Intervention Programs program allowing them to request trauma volunteers to help San Marcos residents when a tragedy occurs. Trauma Intervention Programs is a nonprofit organization that has served San Diego County for 32 years, training citizen volunteers to respond and assist residents after tragedy strikes. Volunteers respond on a 24/7 basis to emergency scenes at the request of first responders. TIP volunteers provide immediate emotional and practical support which emergency responders may not have time to provide, adding another dimension to the emergency response system: compassionate support. “The city of San Marcos Fire Department is excited about this new partnership with the Trauma Intervention Programs of San Diego County. We believe that TIP will provide a high caliber of trauma support services to the

residents of San Marcos,” Fire Capt. Leighton Ewens said. “The 24/7 coverage and impressive 23-minute average response time to emergency scenes will give our first responders a valuable tool in the toolbox when mitigating challenging incidents. The grief counseling services that TIP volunteers provide are invaluable during traumatic events. The San Marcos Fire Department will request TIP to respond to any incident where trauma support services will positively affect the outcome of a difficult situation. “TIP San Diego looks forward to working in conjunction with the San Marcos Fire Department to provide such assistance to its citizens in order to ease their immediate suffering and help facilitate their healing and longterm recovery,” said TIP Executive Director Sher DeWeese. Trauma Intervention Programs is continuing to seek skilled, compassionate individuals who aspire to give back to the community. For more information on becoming a volunteer or supporter, visit or call (855) TIPSD.HELP.


now a mom to two children. “You can see how a church is part of a community and that’s a really good thing,” Rauch says. “We were part of rebuilding lives through love, prayer and compassion.” Regular outings to Mexico were also on Rauch’s agenda as the church partnered with homebuilding organization Youth With A Mission to build one or two homes in Tijuana and Ensenada each year. A crew of about 25 church members will be returning this October. Other church programs conducted under Rauch’s guidance included sending at least five church members on missions to bring compassion, services and supplies to other countries every year, and gathering volunteers to serve meals once a month at the Escondido-based Interfaith Community Services’ homeless shelter called Haven House. The church also supports dance ministry in the Westminster Presbyterian sanctuary that has the flexibility to be used for art, music, drama and dance. Rauch says the church has been building a relationship with the privately run Amazing Grace School of Performing Arts led by director Becky Dean. “The dance ministry helps girls feel at home in their bodies and glorifies God with movement and music,” said Rauch, adding that dance and music recitals are held in the sanctuary

She is fed through a G-tube and is often hospitalized due to respiratory distress from common colds. Serving a congregation that has fluctuated between 200 and 300 members at any given time since his tenure at Westminster Presbyterian began in 1996, Pastor Rauch has attended to much more than Sunday sermons, weddings, Baptisms and memorials. Day-to-day he has overseen a staff that has grown from a secretary, an organist, a choir director, a half-time youth director and a nighttime custodian, to a staff of between 10 and 15 part-time and full-time workers. He also walked with families through times of crisis such as when some of his flock were affected by the Paradise fire that struck locally in 2003. In addition to providing eating and sleeping quarters at the church for those evacuated from their homes, Rauch performed funeral services at the church and at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido for fire victim Ashleigh Roach. Later, Pastor Rauch would officiate the wedding of the Roach’s other daughter, Allyson, who survived being burned over 80 percent of her body and is

Comedian Dana Carvey to perform at Tri-City’s annual Diamond Ball Fundraiser By Christina Macone-Greene

OCEANSIDE — The Tri-City Hospital Foundation has a lot to be excited about these days. As it readies for its 37th annual Diamond Ball Fundraiser on Nov. 18, it recently announced that legendary comedian Dana Carvey would take center stage. Co-chairing the Diamond Ball Fundraiser is Dr. Jennifer Mayberry, a diagnostic radiologist at Tri-City Hospital, specializing in breast and women’s health. “Every year, the foundation tries to raise funds for a specific purpose through the Diamond Ball,” Mayberry said. “And this year, they focused on raising funds for us to achieve the highest standard of breast imaging at Tri-City, which is going to be the digital mammography and tomosynthesis.” Another way to describe tomosynthesis is 3D mammography. According to Mayberry, this cutting-edge technology provides superior mammographic images in women who have dense or difficult breast tissue to interpret. Statistically, 3D mammography also reduces the number of callbacks in which patients must return for further images. “In my experience, it’s very stressful when women get called back,” she said.

Photo by Julie Gallant for kids in the community, not just kids in the church. “We want to show people by example that we want to invest in people’s lives and well-being.” Judy Tillyer has seen the church and its activities grow while attending Westminster Presbyterian since arriving in Escondido in 1968. Among other things, the church is active in providing backpacks with supplies to school children, giving financial aid and donations to Presbyterian Mission Church in San Diego and fundraising for Alternatives Women’s Center in Escondido, which offers counseling and other aid to pregnant women to avoid abortions. Tillyer said some of Rauch’s strengths include utilizing lay people and encouraging church members to take leadership roles. For example, she said he lets oth-

“They come in for their regular mammogram every year, and when they get a letter or their doctor calls them and says you need to go back for additional pictures, in their mind, they are thinking the worst. It’s very stressful and it’s expensive.” The use of 3D mammograms can drastically minimize these callback numbers as well as the level of anxiety shouldered by patients. “There’s also scientific proof that it (3D mammograms) will increase our detection rate for breast cancers,” she said. Advanced images done via breast tomosynthesis

capture multiple images of the whole breast. Mayberry describes the newest generation of this technology as amazing, and cutting-edge. While the Diamond Ball raises funds to increase the level of care for female patients, attendees will enjoy a performance by Carvey, a highly regarded comedian. “It’s going to be a wonderful night of networking with people, having a lot of great laughs with Dana Carvey, followed by a live band and dancing,” she said. Mayberry said it has been exceptional being cochair the gala — it’s given her the opportunity to become better acquainted with the people at the Tri-

ers take the helm as elected members of “The Session,” a group of 15 elders who meet monthly to handle the church’s major issues such as budget maintenance. Above all, she said Rauch is a compassionate person. He cares deeply about his flock and is always responsive to people not only in emergency situations but also to those who are in poor health or experiencing stressful situations such as a divorce. “That’s his strongest area of pastoring in terms of leadership,” said Tillyer, who said he blends humor, personal anecdotes and scholarly preaching in his sermons. “He’s a man who doesn’t forget your name.” The Rev. Dr. Jeff McCrory is the transitional pastor who is taking Rauch’s place during the next one to two years while the Westminster Presbyterian Church forms a pastor search committee and looks for a permanent replacement. The Westminster congregation will vote on the committee’s selection, then the Presbytery of San Diego Committee on Ministry will vote before the Presbytery of San Diego gives final approval before installing a new pastor. Linda Therien, stated clerk of the Presbytery of San Diego which helps to oversee the work of the local congregations, said the national search for Rauch’s replacement begins with a mission study that considers such things as the

demographics of the neighborhood and the financial health of the church. At the end, the pastor, the congregation and the Presbytery of San Diego must all be in agreement on the selection. “Because our search process is so thorough, I’ve never experienced a call falling apart at the end but it is conceivable that it could happen,” Therien said. “Hopefully, during our process there is discernment such that when we’re at the finish line the parties are all in agreement.” Now that Rauch has left his call at Westminster, he says other than filling in for absent pastors occasionally or possibly securing a temporary position with another church in the region, he may be involved in planting a new church in North County, probably in Escondido or Rancho Bernardo. Rauch said if church members follow through with the planting, they will try to focus on attracting younger Millennials as a way of growing the influence of God in people’s lives. In reflecting on the work he’s done during the past two decades, Rauch is reminded of a passage from one of his favorite books, John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden:” “A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well — or ill?”

City Hospital Foundation. “Tri-City Hospital has this amazing, unique community of people and doctors who are invested in this hospital,” she said. “And not just financially invested, but their hearts are invested because they care.” She also noted their exceptional hospital volunteers. Mayberry said that by adding 3D mammography at Tri-City Hospital, patients are being put first. The advanced technology will bring a higher level of care in the community, so residents don’t have to seek it elsewhere in cities like San Diego or Los Angeles. Aside from being a comprehensive breast care center, Mayberry said the personal connection she feels to the hospital means everything to her. “I could go anywhere and do my job, but I really like doing it here,” Mayberry said. “I have the support of our foundation, donors and sponsors which makes what we all do so much more worthwhile. This is home — this is where I will get my care when it is my turn.” For more information about the 37th annual Diamond Ball Fundraiser including corporate sponsorship levels, underwriting opportunities and individual ticket sales, visit www. tricityhospitalfoundation. org.

MiraCosta College opens STEM center in Oceanside By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — Last week about 80 people gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Nordson Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Center at MiraCosta College’s Oceanside campus. Prior to the event more than 2,000 students had already taken advantage of services the center offers since it opened in August. “The STEM center has been functioning at capacity since it opened its doors,” Kristen Huyck, college interim communications director, said. The center provides a wealth of learning resources specifically geared toward students studying chemistry, physics, math, biology, biotechnology, physical science and computer

science. It is a key learning environment for students in the college’s recently launched biomanufacturing bachelor’s degree program. The center offers STEM students drop-in tutoring and counseling services. It also boasts two group study rooms and two rooms designated for independent study. Other learning tools the center provides include laptops, reference materials, anatomical models, molecular models, scientific calculators and microscopes. “We expect many great things to come from this center,” Sunita Cooke, college president and superintendent, said. The center serves as a one-stop shop for STEM students. It brings together math center resources housed in the li-

brary and science tutoring, which was formerly arranged by appointment in campus classrooms and instructors’ offices. It also provides a place for STEM students to meet with classmates studying the same field. Zachary Matsen, MiraCosta College student, credits on-campus tutoring services and study resources for his admission to San Diego State University. “I wouldn’t have been able to make it happen without them,” Matsen said. The center is also an active recruiting hub that encourages students to pursue STEM studies and embark on careers in regional science, engineering, manufacturing and biotechnology industries. Huyck said recruiting efforts target “historically underrepresented students.”

San Diego supervisors adopt policy to prohibit weapons at protests By Joe Naiman

REGION — In the event of protests in unincorporated San Diego County, the county’s chief administrative officer or designee will have the authority to designate temporary area restrictions, which include the prohibition of items which might be used as weapons. The measure was passed as an urgency ordinance Sept. 26, and since four votes are necessary for passage of an urgency ordinance, the Board of Supervisors took the unprecedented step of having Supervisor Greg Cox vote by teleconference.


thanking the city and the public for supporting their organizations over the years. The recognition was tremendous for the entire department, he said. “We really stand on the shoulders of some great people who have served this community for 90 years, day in and day out, night and day, rain or shine,” Hahn said. “They’ve been there for the community, there for you. And so that’s a big deal, and it’s a very momentous occasion.” According to Hahn, in 1927 there were 553 people in the community of Vista. At that time, a fire raised more awareness of the need to form a fire department. In 1927, 14 members served 553 residents. Today, those residential numbers have swelled to more than 120,000 people in the community both in the city and the Vista Fire Protection District. “We’re very honored to serve the community,” he said. On the paramedic front, Hahn said if Vista rolled the

The 4-0 vote reflects Cox’s teleconference vote and the absence of Ron Roberts, who along with Cox was in Washington, D.C., that day. “We want to make sure they’re peaceful demonstrations in conformance with local law,” Cox said. The ordinance only applies to unincorporated San Diego County. A notice of the restrictions would be posted at the temporary restriction area and on the county’s website at least 24 hours in advance. The restrictions do not preclude peaceful proclock back to the 1960s, an article in the Vista Press indicated that the average wait time for a private ambulance to take someone to the hospital was an hour and a half. “With the support of the council and the community, the Vista Fire Department bought an ambulance and began transporting people to the hospital,” Hahn said. A paramedic program was implemented in 1977. “On the seventh anniversary (paramedic program), a young paramedic walked through the door at Station 1 and turned out to be the seventh career fire chief of this department,” Hahn said. “And I am honored to be that guy.”

tests. “You don’t need to bring weapons to do so,” said Ron Lane, the deputy chief administrative officer for the county’s Public Safety Group. The prohibited potential weapons include, but are not limited to, knives, daggers, shields, poles, sticks, dowels, baseball bats, pepper spray, axes and axe handles, tasers, torches, clubs, bricks, rocks and firearms. “Law enforcement would be able to limit or prohibit items that could be used as weapons,” said Supervisor Dianne Jacob. “We’re also safeguarding our rights of free speech

and assembly.” A board member of a California public agency may vote by teleconference if he or she can be heard at the primary location of the meeting and if everybody at the teleconferencing location can hear the board members, staff presentations and public comments at the primary location. A notice of the meeting must have been posted at the teleconferencing location at least 72 hours in advance, the teleconferencing location must be open to the public and any member who wishes to speak at the teleconferencing location

is allowed to do so. “It’s a fairly cumbersome process,” said County Counsel Tom Montgomery. “It’s not something we are able to do on a regular

basis.” Cox cast his teleconferencing vote at the United States Chamber of Commerce Building in Washington.

VISTA — Step Nicely Dance is turning the Vista Elks Lodge pink on Oct. 29 to raise funds for women battling breast cancer. The Sunday afternoon event, “Step Up for Breast Cancer,” is a dance fundraiser championed by local North County business Step Nicely Dance in partnership with the Vista Elks. As soul line dancers stand up to help breast cancer patients, every step they take will benefit Breast Cancer Angels, a nonprofit organization that financially assists women (and men) undergoing breast cancer treatments. Owner of Step Nicely Dance Pamela Jackson wants people to know dance partners are not needed for soul line dancing. Music ranges from Latin and R&B to jazz and blues tunes. Everyone can take part in the fun, and no experience is required — Jackson will provide easy to follow choreography. Seniors are always encouraged to try it out. Most of Jackson’s students and followers are 40 and older. Jackson will instruct soul line dances for the entire event. Prizes and a dessert bar will also be on hand for attendees at a ticket cost of $20 per person. To date, generous event sponsors include plastic surgeon Dr. Glynn Bolitho in La Jolla, Brunton & Jagger in

Fallbrook, Dr. Cheryl Ricketts-Mulvey and Dr. Finbarr Mulvey of Olde Mission Chiropractic in San Marcos, Classic Chariots in Vista, Realtor Raini Gordy of Carrington Real Estate in Del Mar, Cavalier Forwarding in San Marcos, Bob Hillery owner/broker of CR Properties Real Estate Services in Fallbrook, Ciao Restaurant in Vista, Palomar Investigative Group in Carlsbad, A.C.T. Business Group in Fallbrook and Vista, Performance K9 Training in Fallbrook and Nutrilys Del Mar in Carlsbad. Jackson, who is chairing the event, has been personally touched by breast cancer. “Both of my sisters are survivors, and I’ve lost track of the number of friends and acquaintances who have also battled the disease,” she said. “I so admire the survivors — I can only imagine the hell they’ve gone through, the tears they’ve cried, the support they required and the strength they showed as they had to make some very difficult decisions. I simply want to do my part to help meet the needs of those battling this awful disease.” Jackson was thrilled to partner with the Vista Elks Lodge. Over the years, she was familiar with their philanthropic efforts. Jackson gives special thanks to Myra Walker, the Vista Elks

Lodge activities organizer. “Not only did she agree to donate the space, but Myra spent several hours assisting us with ideas and even offering resources to help keep our costs down,” Jackson said. From all the charities to donate to, Jackson heard positive words about Breast Cancer Angels from one of her planning committee members. When Debbie Stroman, the director of operations of Breast Cancer Angels, heard about “Step Up for Breast Cancer” fundraiser, she was thrilled. “Breast Cancer Angels is so excited to have a wonderful event hosted in North San Diego,” Stroman said.

“We are grateful to Angels like Step Nicely Dance and the Vista Elks Lodge for making this happen. Currently we are only assisting our San Diego clients for two months, and our dream is to be able to assist for four or more months. We hope this event encourages more people to become Angels.” Breast Cancer Angels help those battling cancer who need financial support ranging from food certificates and rental expenses to utility costs as well as medical co-pays. Every need is individualized, and so is the assistance received. Jackson hopes that everyone participates in this unique event while making every step count. Those interested in event sponsorships or donating items for opportunity drawings can contact Jackson at (760) 201-6042.

REGION — A rally at the Oceanside Pier amphitheater drew a crowd of about 100 last weekend to celebrate steps forward to move nuclear waste off of the closed San Onofre nuclear power plant site. The rally celebrated the lawsuit recently won by the Citizens Oversight group that demands Southern California Edison monitor the waste, determine a way to move it and send the oversight group regular updates on its efforts. The rally on Sept. 24 kicked off with live music and drew state assemblymen, assemblywomen, congressmen and candidates as keynote speakers. Col. Doug Applegate, congressional candidate for the 49th District, had a warning for listeners. “Don’t trust any candidate or representative that doesn’t talk about the specifics of when, how and where to move SONGS’ nuclear waste,” Applegate said. “Those are the metrics of paying the bill for the atomic age.” Applegate praised Ray Lutz, founder of Citizens Oversight, for his accomplishment of reaching a favorable settlement to have SCE look into nuclear waste removal. He also said he would like to see more citizens informed and involved. “The time to act is now,” Applegate said. “We don’t have time for half measures.” Mike Levin, fellow congressional candidate for the 49th District and environmental attorney, said he has been following the process to decommission San Onofre for years. Levin said when the pow-

er plant was first built it was hailed as one of the safest in the world. A more recent look at the closed plant finds it’s the worst location to store nuclear waste due its close proximity to the ocean, three nearby earthquake fault lines and potential threats of targeted terrorism. The plant is also close to major roadways and highly populated areas. Levin said the nuclear waste needs to be moved quickly and safely. He said the settlement agreement that addresses what to do with the waste while it remains on site provides new opportunity for discussions. “People (at the rally) were pretty fired up,” Levin said. He added government action, which can come about with good bipartisan legislation, is needed to move the waste off site. Levin said the take-home message from the rally for him was people are tired of congress being inactive on the matter and want a solution. Everyone in attendance seemed to be in agreement that spent fuel could not be kept indefinitely in its present underground temporary storage containers that have a limited lifespan, which people debate to be between 17 and 100 years. Lutz said the settlement agreement that was won in late August starts the process of moving the nuclear waste to a safer place. It calls on SCE to form an expert team within 90 days to look at how to move the waste, establish a strategic plan and transportation plan within six months and implement those plans. Lutz added it’s very powerful to have the court maintain jurisdiction over the settlement terms. “It certainly isn’t over yet, but it’s time to celebrate this milestone,” Lutz said. “It’s a historic way forward from the nuclear waste problem. We believe this is a win for everyone involved.” To follow up on its milestone accomplishment Citizens Oversight is in the process of forming a settlement oversight panel. Lutz said the panel will consist of 10 to 30 people who will process SCE progress reports. The volunteer panel will likely consist of engineers, scientists, urban planners and attorneys, and is expected to be formed within two months. “The first report (from SCE) is expected in the next few days,” Lutz said. “It’s urgent to get the right people together. It will be an ongoing process that will take many years.” Another oversight group effort on the more distant horizon is a call for scientific papers on designs for a 1,000year nuclear waste storage facility. Lutz said if nuclear waste can last for 250,000 years, 1,000 years is a “drop in the bucket.” Select papers will be shared at a future forum.

No rules rule when it comes to spelling names small talk

jean gillette


t doesn’t really fall under the function of the grammar police, nor can it really be fully handed over to the spelling squad. I’m referring to the correct spelling and pronunciation of names. The bottom line, people, is that we are in major disarray. Tsk, tsk. Mispronouncing a name can be a powerful thing; from making you sound rather dull-witted, to destroying any hope a substitute teacher might have of class control. And it appears there is not one telemarketer out there who can pronounce “Gillette” correctly. Have these people never bought a razor? Moreover, the “proper” spelling of a name has gone the way of dressing up for the theater or wearing clothes that keep one’s pelvic bones discreetly covered. It came to my attention recently that one can no longer make a solid case for the “correct” way to spell anyone’s given name — or their surname, either, I imagine. They often ask the cus-

tomer’s name at the coffee shop, to keep the drinks straight. I reply “Jeeeeeen.” Sometimes they just go phonetic, but sometimes they will ask if it is spelled with a J or a G. One time I responded, with a smile, “Just remember. The female Jean is always with a J and the male Gene is always with a G.” The young woman gently retorted that people spell their names so screwy these days, you can’t rely on rules like that. I really wanted to argue. I couldn’t. I want to blame it on the ‘60s, when parents went off the charts naming their children after the moon, the sun and several states of the union. Sadly, that was just a detour. The ‘70s began an explosion of creative spellings like Ambre, Jayceson, Cydnee, Qwyncee and the like. Then there is always the challenge of those who have joined our ranks from those nations of the world where they have precious little use for vowels. I suppose when a parent names a child, he or she isn’t worrying about that kid traveling the world and having that name verbally butchered. “It was our dear great-auntie’s name, and that is that.” This sudden revelation isn’t really sudden. I have been a watcher of names all my life and am fascinated

by the array and choice of monikers passed down to unsuspecting infants. I even managed to misspell my husband’s middle name on our wedding invitations, courtesy of his mother’s determination to give all her children one-of-a-kind names — and that was way back in the ‘40s. She dubbed my spouse Lonel Wenn and his twin brother Landa Burns. They both got scheduled for girl’s gym class almost every year, which may have been the only benefit of her creativity. I like to cite my old German roommate, Roswitha. Few Anglos ever said her name right. Somehow I was one of the few who knew that the German-Dutch “w” is pronounced like our “v.” Don’t people learn anything from old movies? Haven’t they ever eaten at Weinerschnitzel? But even if we mastered German, something tells me that our struggles will not be over. I could take to wearing a stick-on nametag — “Hi. My name is J-E-A-N,” but I think instead I’ll just move to France. When a handsome Frenchman pronounces it, I don’t care how they spell it.

Food &Wine

The joy of cooking to music that moves you

unique way to start Thanksgiving. Music has always been my companion in the kitchen and when the music is spot on, I’m convinced it can enhance a meal. I should note that this combination of food and music was the inspiration for the

radio version of Lick the Plate. A very high percentage of chefs I’ve had on the show are as passionate about their music as they are about cooking. Many of them are also musicians on top of that. In the past, it was that perfect album side during food prep, then came the mixed cassette tape and CD and now the digital options for playlists are almost limitless. I’ve created several iTunes and Spotify

playlists specifically for meals and those playlists are always evolving. The eclectic nature of my musical tastes is reflected in all of these mixes but all of them keep me moving, and in some cases singing along. With that, I give you a recent Lick the Plate mix that powered me through the preparation of some fabulous meatballs. I’ll start off on the jazzy side of things with “Jam Man” by Chet Atkins, a tune that is currently being licensed by an auto insurance company but don’t let that deter you. Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” is another great way to ease into prep. While Deer Tick may not have the most appealing name, their “Miss


y son Quinn learned early on that if dad was in the kitchen cooking up a meal that required even the slightest bit of time and prep, having the TV on in the background was not an option. I should say that there is one exception to that rule and that is Thanksgiving morning, when I’m firing up the smoker at 5 a.m. for my annual Smoked Quail and Quiche Brunch with the Detroit Lions game on. I put “The Last Waltz” on the DVR, the brilliant concert movie from director Martin Scorsese that documents the final performance of The Band. It’s full of epic performances from Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Dr. John, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell and many more. It’s the perfect soundtrack to an early morning of keeping the smoker stoked at a low and slow temperature of 200 degrees and whipping up a dozen or so quiche. Yes, it’s a random combination but friends and neighbors bring more traditional brunch fare and it’s a fun and


ing,” said Jamois, whose obvious choice was creating the records database so the information and photos could be more accessible to the public. “Since I’m interested in computer science that was right up my alley.” Although Jamois was presented with the three options, Brown said the se-

lection was entirely up to Jamois. “He had the skill set that matched well with this project,” Brown said. “He did go out on a limb, though, to get approval from the Scout leaders to take on this project. It was very unique.” Brown said the San Marcos Historical Society board of directors identifies “wish list” projects that can be accomplished through

K” picks up the pace a bit and is a definite singalong. I stay in that signing mode with “September” from Earth, Wind & Fire, “Float On” from Modest Mouse, “Midnight Train” to Georgia by Gladys Knight & the Pips (where I take the lead and backup vocals just because I can) and Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” which probably ranks up there as one of the best singalong songs of all time. Same can be said for the simple yet powerful “Hold On I’m Comin’” from the iconic Sam & Dave. For the sake of full disclosure, I am not a good singer. That said, these songs don’t really require a decent voice especially with the volume high enough to drown out my inspired attempts. Moving on, the playlist segues into tunes that I don’t even attempt to sing along with but have a groove that keeps things moving.

extra funding or volunteers. About the time Jamois met Brown, the organization had just started offering genealogy classes and the instructor, Julie Miller, suggested that having an online reference would be a benefit to those who do research. The time intensive project was added to the wish list. Once Jamois made his selection, Miller, a professional genealogist who has done extensive research of family trees, linked him to online sources that had basic information and easy to follow directions to more indepth research and how to obtain that information. In March, Jamois said he set about organizing news clippings, obituaries and photos that date back to the early 1900s with the help of 10 to 15 volunteers from his Scout troop. Jamois would give the volunteers one of

One look at the long lines waiting to get in and the layout on the lawn, and we knew that the second annual Starlight Food & Wine Festival at Pala Casino Spa & Resort was going to be way better than their initial effort the year before. The wines and the food were upgraded to top shelf and several of my suggestions about food and seating locations were incorporated into this latest version. Bravo! There were 50 fine wine booths and 11 chef’s special-select food offerings, all from Pala’s kitchens. My vote for best food went to Chef Ray Fukawa of the Oak Room, who along with his crew, produced an awesome “Jim Beam” Short Ribs plate with Horseradish Potatoes and Garlic Chips. Close to this one was a Lobster Ravioli Lobster Nage presented by Manny Hernandez of Banquets. Then there were the chocolate creations with a banquet room all to itself. Seemed like miles of the sweet goo and I

more than 20 binders of historical data and teach them how to input the data in the computer. The binders were arranged alphabetically by last name, and so, much of the information was transferred on spreadsheets that would correspond with the first letter of the subject’s last name. The volunteers brought their laptops to the San Marcos Historical Society Heritage Park museum, located in Walnut Grove Park at Sycamore Drive, where Jamois estimates he spent up to 40 hours himself on the project and the volunteers contributed 115 hours altogether. “At first I thought one person would do the reading and another the writing,” he said. “But working solo ended up being a lot more efficient, with me guiding the process and doing the

loved everything I consumed! On to the wines led by Robert Talbot of Monterey with its luscious Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. If there was one wine that paired with virtually everything served that night, it was this Pinot. My good friends at Grgich were there with their legendary Chardonnay and a muscular Merlot. Justin Winery out of Paso Robles and their rep Sini’a Shaw presented the latest Cabernet and in the Cave Room at Pala, ZD from Napa Valley was a crowd pleaser with its Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet. Nick Palm had ZD’s three deep at the popular spot at the Cave bar and all were Gold Medal winners the last three years. Finally, when you go next year, I hope you get to enjoy the band Harmony of Rock, like we did this year. Great choice to pay tribute to the pop-rock music of the ‘70s.

overview.” While the project progressed through May, Jamois kept track of his enterprise in a workbook that would be evaluated by the Eagle Scout Board of Review as part of their process for bestowing the highest rank a Scout may achieve. The workbook is arranged with an initial plan of how he would foresee the project panning out; then a final plan of how the project was actually completed; a project report of what went well and what was challenging about the project; and a log of volunteer time. The workbook is filled out with pictures of the process, permission slips and an introductory statement of ambitions that covers Jamois’ life goals, philosophies and ambitions. “Before, people didn’t even know if a record exist-

ed,” said Jamois, explaining that historical researchers can now easily scan for information on the San Marcos Historical Society website from their home and work computers. If the search leads to desired information, whether it’s photos, obituary records, or biographical information, consumers can contact the San Marcos Historical Society via email and pay a fee based on their request. They can pay by check or online through PayPal, said Brown. The project workbook ends with a letter from the San Marcos Historical Society expressing their appreciation for Jamois’ work that concluded in May. “When you presented your finished project to us, I can say that the outcome far exceeded our expectations, and that this project is one that will have far reaching benefits to not only our organization, but all those who are seeking information from us,” Brown wrote in the letter. “Your project provided the exposure and accessibility of our information to the general public, which is so important in today’s world of technology.” Jamois officially earned his Eagle Scout rank on Aug. 16. And the gazebo at Walnut Grove Park that Jamois passed over may have been neglected but it was not forgotten. The historical society plans to purchase a new gazebo that should be installed by the end of October using donations from several generous members, a memorial donation and a recent fundraiser sponsored by Silvergate, a senior residential facility in San Marcos.

Audacious Kristi Lyn Goss, 44, former administrative assistant to the Garland County (Arkansas) judge, went all out when she racked up about $200,000 worth of debt on the county credit card between 2011 and May 2016, according to The Hot Springs (Arkansas) Sentinel-Record. Among the many items Goss purchased on the county's account were tickets to Arkansas Razorbacks games, sequined throw pillows and a tuxedo for her dog. Goss pleaded guilty on Sept. 11 to six felony fraud counts; her sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 22. Garland County Judge Rick Davis issued a statement at Goss's arrest noting that he had "inherited" her from a former judge.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that sex offenders were directed to Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel. Pasco County Sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll noted that offenders found in other shelters where chil-

dren were present were subject to arrest, but said the predator shelter would welcome offenders from other counties. In nearby Polk County, officials were not so generous, telling sex offenders, "If you are a predator, find somewhere else to go," and announcing that they would be checking IDs at the door and arresting anyone with an outstanding warrant. [Tampa Bay Times, 9/7/2017] Campaign Follies Incumbent mayoral candidate Charles Pender erected his campaign signs in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, on Aug. 30, but when he woke up on Aug. 31, he found that they had been vandalized -- with hot dogs. CBC News reported that someone had cut round holes in the signs and inserted hot dogs to look as if Pender was smoking a cigar. Pender called it "minor mischief" but noted that the signs are expensive. He called the police, but he feels it's unlikely the frank bandit will be caught. He hopes to turn the incident into a good laugh with a "bun-raiser" later in the election season. [CBC News, 9/11/2017] Compelling Explanations Lisa Faye Stout, 53, came up with an unusual scapegoat for the mess police officers found in her room on Sept. 10 at New Castle, Indiana's Raintree Inn, according to the Muncie Star Press. Vampires had "destroyed everything," Stout told the officers, who were responding

In loving memory of Catherine “Kay” Bernet (Suppicich) July 11, 1922 - July 13, 2017

Catherine “Kay” Bernet (Suppicich) passed peacefully on July 13, 2017 at Pine Point Center in Scarborough, Maine. She was born in Wethersfield, CT on July 11, 1922 to Vincent and Matija Suppicich. Kay was raised and educated in Wethersfield, CT. and graduated from Wethersfield High School in 1941. She married Louis R. Bernet (Bernetich) in April, 1944 and moved to Bergen County, NJ. Kay worked in a number of corporate offices in New Jersey and mid-town Manhattan, and was particularly proud to have been an administrative assistant for Mr. Robert B. Anderson, a former Secretary of the Treasury. Her passion for 10 pin bowling flourished in the office bowling leagues in Manhattan. She carried this life-long hobby to all 48 states, becoming a successful amateur in many leagues and tournaments. Playing this sport into her 80’s, Kay stopped her bowling only to find great fun and friends at Bingo tables wherever she lived. Kay and Lou retired in 1976 and traveled the U.S. in a motor home to discover wonderful Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they lived until Lou passed in March, 1994. They also traveled throughout Eu-

to reports that she had shown up in the hotel bar wearing no pants or undergarments. The front desk clerk also said Stout spit on her and threatened to kill her. As she was taken into custody, Stout spit some more and threatened to "slice" officers' throats. Stout was charged in Henry County court with two counts of battery by bodily waste, intimidation and criminal mischief. [The Star Press, 9/13/2017]

ran round to the front and asked him politely to step out. I then ended up on the front of the vehicle and it began to move." The driver entered a highway, but when he finally slowed down, Spooner let go and "skidded off to the side of the curb," suffering cuts and bruises to his face. While Spooner creates stunts for film crews, he advises, "It's a bad plan to do them yourself." [The Telegraph, 9/15/2017]

Recalculating ... Well, it WAS dark ... Gabriel Bishop of Sellersville, Pennsylvania, put all his faith in his car's GPS system on the evening of Sept. 9, even as it directed him to follow a bike path running alongside the Lehigh River in Easton. According to, when the path led under a low bridge, Bishop realized his mistake and tried to back up, but ended up rolling his car into the river. Easton police reported that Bishop was uninjured, but he did receive citations for multiple traffic offenses. [Lehigh Valley Live, 9/10/2017]

Exploitation 101 Jerry Sargeant, 39, of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, England, who claims on his website to be able to cure cancer via Skype, has been convicted in Westminster Magistrate's Court of violating the U.K.'s 1939 Cancer Act, which prohibits advertising services that "offer to treat any person for cancer." The Daily Mail reports that Sargeant, who calls himself "The Facilitator," says he discovered his talent for "Star Magic" when he saw a woman's soul fly out of her body during a car accident in Romania. He also claims to have flown to Alpha Centauri on a spaceship and returned to Earth just minutes later. Sargeant's healing sessions cost 90 pounds for 15 minutes, but he told police that appointments can go up to an hour because "you can't put a time on magic." He will be sentenced on Nov. 8. [Daily Mail, 9/20/2017]

Smooth Reactions A movie stuntman in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England, put his skills to work when a potential buyer of his Mercedes Benz tried to take off with the car on Sept. 13. The Telegraph reported that Matt Spooner met the "buyer" and gave a test drive in the car, but the thief wouldn't get out and started to take off. So, Spooner told reporters, "I

rope, and to Croatia, where they discovered her family’s roots, villages and relatives. Upon Lou’s death, Kay moved to California, living in both San Marcos and Escondido. In 2012, she moved to Portland, Maine to live closer to her family. She resided at Deering Pavilion and lived independently until she became ill in February, 2017. Kay was a life-long communicant of the Roman Catholic Church. A Memorial Mass was said for her in the chapel within her residence on August 15. Kay was predeceased by: her parents, Vincent and Matija; husband, Lou; daughter, Nancy Bourdon (Don, Woodstock, VT.); brothers, Steve, Pete, Carl, Joe, John; and sisters, Ann, Mary, Betty, and Dotty. She is survived by: her daughter, Phyllis Hayes and her husband Daniel of Cumberland Foreside, Maine; son, Larry Bernetich and his wife Nikki of Brookfield WI.

She is also survived by her nephews, Vincent Suppicich, Robert Suppicich, Jerry Suppicich, Bill Casey, Michael Suppicich, Dick Sopelsa, and Arthur Sopelsa, and nieces, Catherine Conway, Diane Ohanian, Sheila Suppicich, Barbara Sopelsa Gazza and several grand-nieces and grand-nephews. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Corpus Christy Church, Wethersfield, CT with interment to follow at Rose Hill Cemetery in Rocky Hill, CT. A luncheon will be held at 1:00 PM at Elaine’s Restaurant, 1841 Berlin Turnpike, Wethersfield, CT 06109. Cards and condolences can be sent to Phyllis B.

Life Imitates Cartoons The Fremont (California) Police Department responded late on Sept. 17

OCT. 6, 2017 to a Safeway store where 39-year-old Adam Kowarsh, armed with a French baguette, was on a rampage. According to SFGate, workers told Kowarsh he needed to pay for his items and leave the store, but when one employee tried to calm him, Kowarsh responded by pushing him and then hitting him across the face with the baguette. The Safeway employee was unhurt, but Kowarsh was charged with suspicion of battery and a parole violation. [SFGate, 9/19/2017] No Pain, No Gain Archaeologists in Cambridgeshire, England, have discovered the remains of a nearly 200-year-old colony of utopians espousing "free love and wife-swapping," according to Metro News. The Manea Fen community, established in 1838 by Methodist minister William Hodson, who championed a community free from marriage, money or monogamy, once numbered 150 members, but lasted only 25 months before succumbing to "personality clashes and objections to the practice of free love." Lead researcher Dr. Marcus Brittain believes "they got the wrong people, they had no labor skills and put in no time and effort, they were drunk, they went into local brothels, and thought they could build a utopia without breaking a sweat." [Metro News, 9/18/2017] Least Competent Criminals — Police officers in Surf City, North Carolina, stopped Zachary Kingsbury, 20, of Lynnwood,

Washington, on Aug. 30 and asked him to step out of his car because they had spotted contraband inside. Kingsbury complied, but then took off running, heading toward the beach -- and didn't stop when he hit the ocean. According to the Port City Daily, Kingsbury continued swimming for almost an hour as police tracked him with a drone-mounted camera, which allowed them to also see the shark trailing him in the water. At that point, said Surf City Police Chief Ron Shanadan, the chase "became a rescue operation," and multiple emergency crews were dispatched to pick up the fugitive. Kingsbury was taken into custody in North Topsail Beach and charged with resisting arrest and possession of marijuana and methamphetamine. [Port City Daily, 8/30/2017] — The first rule of thievery ought to be: Draw no attention to oneself. An unnamed driver in Lelystad, The Netherlands, apparently hadn't learned this rule before he strapped two large lampposts to the roof of his tiny two-door car and drove away from Almere, where police believe he stole them. The NL Times reported that officers stopping the man on Aug. 1 smelled alcohol on his breath, but his offenses didn't end there: His license had been declared invalid late last year, and his car was uninsured. It was unclear what the man planned to use the lampposts for. [NL Times, 8/2/2017]

San Diego State at home being the local team sports talk

jay paris


ne was once ours. One still is. In covering their games on consecutive days, that couldn’t be clearer. The Chargers (0-4) play the New York Giants on Sunday, but it was last Sunday that the team’s vibe was rotten to the core. The franchise’s dysfunction was on full display as it played in a soccer stadium which held mostly Eagles fans as the Chargers coughed up another game to remain winless. In San Diego, the Chargers were critiqued and knocked around when things went south. Which, if you were been paying attention, has been the norm by the Chargers after losing 27 of their 36 past games. But this scene was different as the Chargers were an outcast in their own digs. They were scorned and mocked. Whenever a cheer went up, that mean the “home” team had produced another blunder. Loud and proud, those Philadelphia fans were. And them delivering their message with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in attendance

only added to the fog muddling the Chargers’ picture. But the Chargers are L.A.’s problem, although those thinking their local fan base has vanished are mistaken. Whether it’s hate watching or viewers having a keen interest in Philip Rivers and his crew, TV ratings for the Bolts remains top among NFL games shown in San Diego. When cruising the StubHub Center parking lot before games, there’s plenty of familiar faces from the North County. Many are riding the 5 North Bolt charter buses, which leave from Oceanside and Escondido. So some people are still cheering and good for them. Others are done with the Chargers and I can’t blame them. It’s your fault if you haven’t hitched a ride with the No. 19-ranked Aztecs (5-0). The team that was here before and after the mighty NFL’s arrival is producing top-shelf football. SDSU, spotless through its non-conference schedule for the first time, returns to Mountain West Conference play at Nevada-Las Vegas on Saturday. Christian Chapman, the former Carlsbad High standout, helps directs an offense which leans on All-Everything Penny Rashaad. Troy Cassidy, another ex-Lancer, has a key role as a sophomore linebacker. While the numbers attached to the Chargers are

unsightly it’s the opposite for the Aztecs. They’re 5-0 for the first time since 1981. In SDSU’s last 29 contests, its prevailed 26 times. That includes the Aztecs getting past Northern Illinois on Sat-

urday in Mission Valley. “I’ve never been 5-0 as a head coach,” SDSU’s Rocky Long said. “I only see bright things from that, because I don’t think we played very well (against Northern Il-

linois). I don’t think we’ve played very well the last two games, but guess what? We won. What’s that tell you? We’ve got a chance to be really good. We’re not right now, but we’ve got a chance to be

really good.” Chances are the straighttalking Long is right again. Contact Jay Paris at Follow him @jparis_sports

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAVVY TEACHER Shelley Glenn Lee, a teacher at High Tech Elementary North County in San Marcos, has been honored with the Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. She has designed projects that engage students in studying San Diego’s biodiversity. In kindergarten and first grade, students focus on habitats such as tide pools, ponds, sandy beaches and other water homes. The PIAEE awards recognize innovative educators who bring environmental education into their classrooms through hands-on, experiential approaches. Lee is a board member of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, serving as chairwoman of the Education Committee. BOWLERO OPENS IN SAN MARCOS Bowlero San Marcos, at 945 San Marcos Blvd., San Marcos, will host a grand opening of its new San Marcos location Oct. 14 with free bowling, arcade games, and a chance to meet and bowl with threetime pro bowler “Lights Out” Shawne Merriman. RSVP now at events/san-marcos-grandopening. The Bowlero site, formerly AMF Eagle Lanes, will feature a high-tech arcade, 40 black-light lanes, sleek décor, and an innovative new menu with eats like a five-pound burger, 2-foot long hot dog and a five-layer pizza cake. For lane availability, reservations, or to plan a party or corporate event, call (760) 744-7000 or visit bowlero. com. NEW CEO AT NEIGHBORHOOD HEALTHCARE After 31 years of serving as chief executive officer of Neighborhood Healthcare, Tracy Ream announced that she will retire on Oct. 31. Rakesh Patel, MD, has been chosen to serve


as the new CEO. During her tenure, Ream has led the nonprofit community healthcare agency that started from a small office provided by the city of Escondido for a dollar’s rent per year to a two county 12site health system serving 67,000 low-income and uninsured patients a year. TOP SAFETY AWARDS BETA Healthcare group presented Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway with four safety awards for meeting or exceeding their rigorous standards emphasizing patient safety, reliability of care and reducing risk exposure in the areas of obstetrics and emergency medicine. Palomar Medical Center Escondido’s perinatal team has achieved BETA’s safety award six consecutive years and the Emergency Department for four consecutive years. CARROLL NAMED STUDENT’S DEAN Cynthia Rice Carroll, former associate dean of Student Services at MiraCosta’s San Elijo Campus, has been named MiraCosta’s first associate vice president of institutional advancement. Rice Carroll’s selection gives her direct oversight of college public relations and marketing, governmental affairs, advocacy, the MiraCosta College Foundation and a five-year, $8-million fundraising campaign to support the MiraCosta Promise. HELP HURRICANE VICTIMS The San Diego offices of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage invite neighbors to join the effort to raise funds for those impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey by donating to one of two campaigns, the Realogy Disaster Relief Fund and the Realogy Foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund. Funds are being collected through the Realogy Charitable Foundation, which will match the first $75,000 donated to either the company’s new Disaster Relief Fund for employees and affiliated agents, or to its foundation’s Florida Hurricane Fund, the proceeds of which will be sent to the American Red Cross.

Your aim should be to stabilize your life and secure your future, not to jump from one thing to another. Do your best to understand the needs of others and to express what’s most important to you in return. Compromise and work as a team player.
