Teamwork is at heart of longtime surf friends By Steve Puterski

REGION — Surfing is challenging enough, even with seeing the waves and breaks unfold. But paddling out and catching a wave while blind is a whole other ballgame. But last month, Scott Leason put forth an inspiring run during the inaugural International Surfing Association World Adaptive Games as a member of Team USA at La Jolla Shores. Leason, 59, took 28th out of 35 disabled competitors and missed reaching the finals by two points. Overall, at least 70 athletes from 18

countries competed at the games. However, the judging — not that he and coach Pat Weber of Vista were angry about — tallied the four blind surfers the same as the sighted athletes. Weber, though, said he will work with officials on how to establish a scoring system for blind athletes as well as forming their own division. Nevertheless, the longtime friends were more than happy with Leason’s efforts on the waves. “It felt great and was a privilege and honor to be on the U.S.

team,” he said. “I feel as a visually impaired surfer I did well.” “It was apples and oranges, but we were stoked to be in the fruit basket,” Weber added about the games. The blind competitors are inspirations, although Leason’s story is one of overcoming a near death experience, battling through a dark period before taking control of his life. Twenty-two years ago Leason was working as a convenience store clerk when a pair of robbers entered the store, shot him in the

head and left. Leason said the bullet just missed his brain, but his right eye had to be removed. A year later, his left one was surgically removed and now he has a pair of prosthetic eyes. The aftermath was a difficult period for Leason, who was an avid surfer prior to the gunshot. In 2002, he met Weber and hit the waves. The two reunited once per year for the next 13 years until they discovered the games. Over the last month, Leason TURN TO FRIENDS ON 18

Critics oppose herbicide use, tree removal at Lake Hodges By Tony Cagala

ESCONDIDO — Tensions are rising in a Del Dios community over a project involving the removal of several trees and the spraying of herbicides around the Lake Hodges reservoir. A city advocate has had to step in to smooth “testy and personal” interactions between some residents and the nonprofit group leading the project known as the Oak Woodland Fire Fuel Reduction Project. The nonprofit Friends of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve has been in charge of the project, which has been removing eucalyptus trees and other non-native species from around the reservoir, a source of drinking water for the city of San Diego, residents in the Olivenhain Municipal Water District and the Santa Fe Irrigation

Mike Kelly, a board member and conservation chair of the Friends of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, said the opposition first started when the big trees started being taken down. “This is the first of a whole series of projects like this — the first one that actually generated some opposition — and I think it’s because these trees were in the view shed of people in the community and they A group of residents in a Del Dios neighborhood near Lake Hodges voice their concerns with members of didn’t like the fact that so the nonprofit Friends of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, which is overseeing the Oak Woodland Fire Fuel many big trees were comReduction Project.

SAN MARCOS — A draft environmental impact report for a 189home development in the northern foothills of San Marcos says the project would have less than a significant impact upon local traffic, wildlife, view corridors, noise and other environmental factors. The San Marcos Highlands Project, which was revived in late 2014 after developers temporarily shelved the plans, has been somewhat controversial in the communities immediately surrounding the project, which is proposed on 262 acres northwest of Palomar College. But the EIR, which was circulated for public comment between June and August, says that the project’s impacts are either “less than significant” or would be less than significant with some sort of mitigating actions. City officials said that they received more than 70 responses during the comment phase, some from public agencies and others from residents and opponents of the project. Those comments have yet to be reviewed and are not part of the public record, officials said. City officials and the project developer will respond to the comments and make changes to the report as necessary before it heads to the Planning Commission and the City Council for certification, which could occur as early as early 2016, city officials said. Residents in the past have complained that it is not necessarily the project — but the project’s future ramifications — that worry them, specifically as it pertains to a proposed extension of Las Posas Road. A number of residents in the adjacent Santa Fe Hills community or in unincorporated county land north of the project along Buena Creek Road have been opposed to or skeptical of the project largely due to a feature of the project that would extend Las Posas Road in San Marcos nearly to Buena Creek.

Haggen files motion to establish bid procedures By Steve Puterski

REGION — Shortly after Haggen Inc. disclosed it was closing more than 100 grocery stores, the company announced Tuesday in a press release it has filed motions seeking the approval of a bankruptcy court to establish procedures for ongoing sales. The motions present global bidding procedures, stalking horse package bid procedures and a schedule of stores being sold. Of those Gelson’s Markets stores included are one in Carlsbad on El Camino Real and the Del Mar location on Via De La Valle. In total, eight Gelson’s Markets and 26 Smart & Final stores in California including one in Carlsbad and one in Las Vegas are up for sale. Haggen purchased 146 Albertsons and Safeway stores earlier this year. The stores were up for sale because Federal Trade Commission ordered them to be sold as part of the merger between the two grocery giants. According to analysts, the buyout could have cost Haggen $1.4 billion for the 146 Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions and Safeway grocery stores. Previous to that buyout, Haggen operated 18 stores in Oregon and Washington. The grocery chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this month.

Gelson’s Markets stores will place bids to take over the former Haggen locations in Carlsbad and in Del Mar. Haggen Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this month. File photo

The chain will now focus around 37 stores in the northwest. Haggen is seeking a court hearing on Oct. 19, 2015, to hear the company’s proposal. Parties interested in participating in the sale of stores need to submit an indication of interest by no later than Oct. 26. The procedures provide for a deadline for submission of bids to purchase some or all of the assets by 2 p.m. PST Nov. 2, with an auction scheduled Nov. 9.

The hearing to consider the results of the auction will be held Nov. 24. In the event no auction is conducted for a stalking horse package or if one of the stalking horse bidders is successful bidder for its package after the auction and the contracts identified in the original bid have not changed, a sale hearing for those stores will be held Nov. 13 instead. All dates are tentative and subject to bankruptcy court approval.

Haggen previously requested approval to begin going out of business sales in the identified non-core locations and will exit operations during the last weeks of November. The sale process has been designed to be fair and transparent in order to derive the highest bid for the stores and to maximize value for the estate and creditors in an orderly process. Haggen also filed motions to approve two separate asset purchase agreements for stalking

horse bidder packages. Gelson’s Markets signed an asset purchase agreement for eight stores in California and Smart & Final LLC signed an agreement for 28 stores in California and Nevada. Both agreements are subject to bankruptcy court approval. Sagent Advisors, LLC has been retained to coordinate the sale process for Haggen. Parties interested in learning more about the process can contact Sagent at (212) 904-9400.

City OKs ‘no risk’ deal that would save almost $500,000 Developer hints By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — Saving money is a good thing. It is even better when it comes at no cost. During their weekly meeting on Wednesday, the City Council unanimously approved a 10-year agreement with Green Charge Networks Energy Services LLC for installation and maintenance of battery-powered storage systems at seven sites. The Santa Clara-based company, through negotiations, will receive approximately 70 percent of the savings, while the city will earn 30 percent. Over the 10-year period, projections show monetary savings for the city at $491,567. Despite the savings, Mayor Sam Abed questioned GCN’s rate of return for investors and said he would like those numbers. Although the city agreed to the deal, it can still pull out without penalty before GCN begins installation. Councilwoman Olga Diaz, though, said consistency is key in dealing with private businesses as the city does not request those rate returns from leasing cellphone towers. Abed disagreed with the

comparison, but voted in favor of the deal. Many of Abed’s concerns, however, were eased by Maintenance Deputy Director of Public Works Rich O’Donnell’s presentation along with assurances from Public Works Director Edward Domingue. Both men agreed the deal comes at no risk to the city. One of Abed’s pressing concerns was if the deal was right for the city and the 30 percent was the best option. “These are good savings, but I don’t know if they are good enough,” Abed said. “I just want to make sure it’s a fair deal for the city.” The city inquired with another business, but a 20year agreement and lower net savings was the result. In addition, the city would have been required to carry the loans and pay for services even if no savings were earned. A study by GCN, meanwhile, targeted 10 sites throughout the city using electric meters. Of the 10, seven are viable candidates for the new program. They include City Hall, Police and Fire Headquarters, Main Library, Park Avenue Community Center, East

Valley Community Center, Kit Carson Skate Park and the California Center of the Arts Escondido Central Plant. O’Donnell estimated the savings for each site with the Police and Fire Headquarters leading the way at a 10-year total of $211,453. City Hall and East Valley Community Center are each more than $60,000, while Park Avenue Community Center ($49,985), Kit Carson Skate Park ($34,438), the library ($34,704) and CCAE ($24,552) round out the seven. GCN proposes to reduce the demand charge at numerous sites using the battery system, which activate at peak demand (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and are recharged at night. Therefore, reducing the peak demand charge the city will save funds shared with the company. In addition, the city will not owe GCN if there are no savings. “We control the energy use through that period using the storage power and not the grid,” O’Donnell said. GCN Director of Sales Sandy King broke down the plan saying a portion of the funds come from rebates, while investors cover the oth-

er costs. In addition, she said the company is committed to the city and creating the best deal possible for both sides. “The utilities are really a partner by building a more energy charged system,” King added. “California is a very strong market because we are a very energy hungry state, but we also face some critical power delivery needs too.” GCN, which was founded in 2009, is the country’s largest storage provider and has a strong presence in the county, she explained. The storage facilities bring value along with a commitment to cover all maintenance costs. The company’s portfolio includes public entities such as the cities of Lancaster, Santa Clara and Redwood, Santa Barbara County, Ventura County Community College District, the Tulare School District and Cal State Fullerton. Private companies include 7 Eleven, Kaiser Permanente, UPS, Walgreens, Safeway and Kohl’s. “We have an intelligent software that learns customers usage,” King said. “It’s understood across the board … it’s a nice value proposition, and the utilities understand that as well.”

KRPI radio station sold, changes format By Aaron Burgin

REGION — For nearly 20 years, KPRI/ 102.1 FM stood alone in San Diego’s market as an independent radio station amid a sea of corporately owned and operated competitors. Last week, the ride came to an end for the adult-alternative station, as

it was announced that Compass Radio, the owners of the local station, had sold it to a Rocklin-based nonprofit company that runs radio stations that specialize in contemporary Christian music. The sale of KPRI to the Educational Media Foundation is expected to close

in mid-January of next year, as it requires Federal Communications Commission approval, according to the radio industry website, All-Access. But the station changed formats sometime on Monday, switching from adult alternative staples to the new owner’s K-LOVE for-

mat, which includes popular Christian Adult Contemporary artists such as Chris Tomlin, Jeremy Camp and Colton Dixon. “This is a step we take with very mixed emotions,” Compass President and Co-owner Jonathan TURN TO RADIO ON 18

at San Elijo Town Center’s second phase By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — For years, the three vacant lots at the heart of the San Elijo Hills community — the spot for the proposed second phase of the community’s Town Center — has become an eyesore in an otherwise picturesque master-planned community and a thorn in the side of residents. Late last month, however, a glimmer of hope for the long-delayed second phase emerged in the form of a message on the San Elijo Hills Development Co.’s website that said plans were in the works for the second phase. “San Elijo Hills Development Company is thrilled to share that we are working with an experienced and proven retail developer toward an agreement to build the second phase of the Town Center,” the message stated. “This next phase includes the open lot behind Chevron, the entire open lot across from the existing retail and the parcel of land directly behind Café Stoked leading up to Schoolhouse Way.” According to the message, the company — a subsidiary of HomeFed Corporation — couldn’t provide specifics until it reached an agreement with the retail developer, but said another update

would be coming “within the next month or two.” The Town Center, which is the unofficial “downtown” of the San Marcos community, currently includes a grocery store, gas station and bank, as well as retail units on the ground floor of mixedused developments. The last portion of the center that was finished was the gas station in 2008, but efforts to complete the Town Center stalled as a result of the recession, which ground much of the county’s retail development to a halt. Residents in San Elijo Hills took to message boards and the community’s Facebook page to react to the possibility of the second phase being imminent. Some were excited, while others were skeptical after nearly a decade of waiting. “An update in the coming months? Uh okaaaaaay. I’ve lived here 13 years, still wondering,” wrote Elizabeth Gross Wosika. “That sounds like code for ‘stop bugging us.’ It’s really an eyesore.” The community, which borders Carlsbad on San Marcos’ southern edge, has about 3,000 homes and condominium units and a population of more than 7,000 and includes a large elementary and middle school near its center.

UC still deciding who it will belong to California Focus By Thomas D. Elias

T

he question of who the University of California will be serving when it reaches the third decade of this 21st Century remains one the elite system’s administrators year after year refuse to confront. Will UC and its 10 campuses belong primarily to the California students they were built to serve? Or will they become the de facto property of wealthy out-ofstate and foreign parents and governments eager to send their children to what has ranked for 75 years as the world’s leading public university system? One thing for sure, UC today is more dependent than ever on the $24,700 extra each out-of-state student pays in tuition and fees above what any in-state resident pays. Another thing for certain: California high school graduates have become less and less welcome over the last 15 years as the state’s politicians reduced the flow of tax money to the university. To maintain academic standards and retain most of the faculty who have won its 51 Nobel prizes, UC needs big money. Hence the impulse to replace California tax dollars with out-of-state and foreign student tuition and fees. How strong is that impulse today? Final university enrollment figures for this fall are not yet official, but last spring, fully 45 percent of admission offers at UC Berkeley went to non-Californians. Out-of-staters got 42 percent of admission offers from UCLA, 39 percent at UC San

Diego and 35 percent at UC Davis, to name some of the system’s most-desired campuses. It’s not yet certain how many took up those offers. But the result is that more and more California parents and kids are coming to believe that what was supposed to be their university has gotten beyond reach of most. It’s not just the push for out-of-state tuition money, but also the increases for instate tuition and fees, which tripled in the last 12 years to $9,139 this fall. Costs of

Riverside and Merced, both smog- and heat-ridden locales where few out-of-staters want to spend several years. Two years ago, Merced had just 1.2 per cent non-Californians, Riverside 6.9 percent. The logic also ends when you consider there are many more Californians today than earlier, so admitting roughly the same number as 20 years ago means thousands of excellent, deserving students will be left out. The influx of foreign students that’s a big part of this picture has had other effects,

Will UC and its 10 campuses belong primarily to the California students they were built to serve? books, room and board are added to that. Yes, UC offers plenty of scholarships to California kids, but full rides are rare for anyone who can’t dunk a basketball or tackle a swift 220-pound running back. So UC today is almost as expensive for in-state residents as top private colleges were a mere 10 to 15 years ago. Inflation does not account for nearly all of this. Recall where UC came from: Back in the early 1960s, the state’s education master plan stipulated that everyone in the top one-eighth of a California high school class would be offered a slot on at least one UC campus. That policy has been tweaked a bit over the years, but campus officials like to point out that “UC has not reduced the number of Californians it admits.” True, anyone in the top 9 percent of a California high school class today will be admitted, but many are offered slots on low-demand campuses like

both positive and negative. It certainly increased diversity on the most popular campuses. But some critics also say it has helped fuel a documentable rise of corrosive anti-Semitic incidents and rhetoric on campus, both from students and faculty. Another effect of high tuition and out-of-state enrollment is a greater emphasis on attending much-more-economical community colleges, from which thousands transfer to UC each year. The bottom line: It’s no wonder that for many parents of California high schoolers, the biggest worry today is not drought or home prices or the possible onslaught of floods this winter, but whether their children will be able to attend the elite universities which once were a matter of course for the best students.

This month marks a historic first for California State University San Marcos. Last Sunday, we publicly launched CSUSM’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign, an ambitious effort to raise $50 million in support of students, community engagement initiatives, research and other programs. Forward Together: The Campaign for California State University San Marcos builds upon CSUSM’s 25-year history of serving our region. The theme is a tribute to the groundswell of partnerships and community support that initially advocated for our university and have continued to sustain and grow it over the years. No other institution in the 23-campus California State University system — and likely no other university in the country — has taken on a philanthropic campaign at such a young age. Launched at this pivotal moment in the history of our university and region, this campaign is not just inevitable, it is imperative. Given the enormous growth and change in our region, we know that the challenge to meet and expand upon our potential is significant. But we are youthful and enterprising, with an unrivaled track record of success. The next chapter in our pioneering story is just beginning. This campaign is centered on building support for the three primary ways we are transforming our region: • We prepare future leaders. At CSUSM,

we believe in equal access and opportunity for all students, regardless of who they are or where they come from. As a public institution, we know it’s our role and our responsibility to reach back and lift up those who are most at risk of not achieving a college degree. By doing so, our students are given the real opportunity to transform dreams into reality and become the leaders our

becoming aware of the big questions — both contemporary and enduring — and are empowered to respond and contribute to finding the answers. Our growth is not slowing down. With over 14,000 students this academic year — our highest enrollment ever — the needs of our students and of our region are not going away. And there is no end in sight to the continued uncertainty surrounding public funding

As a public institution, we know it’s our role and our responsibility to reach back and lift up those who are most at risk of not achieving a college degree. region and world so desperately need. • We build great communities. Over the years, CSUSM’s physical boundaries have become more and more blurred with the greater community’s. As we inspire students who are committed to serving our communities, and as we pursue partnerships with external stakeholders for the benefit of the region, we are also inspiring personal connections through shared traditions and activities in the arts, athletics and academics. • We solve critical issues. While our dedicated faculty are expanding the frontiers of knowledge and translating discoveries into life-changing applications, our students are

of higher education. These are the reasons we have decided to be audaciously bold and launch the public phase of our campaign now. Will we succeed? Undoubtedly we will! Because we are approaching this campaign the same way that we approach nearly everything at Cal State San Marcos — by joining forces with our community and with all who appreciate the unique value that CSUSM brings to our region. With the collective power of our supportive region, there is no limit to what we can do. Join us as we move Forward Together. Karen Haynes is president of Cal State University San Marcos.

City, developer reach settlement over Country Club housing project Mayor says city will not work with developer By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — After years of contention, the City Council announced Wednesday a settlement agreement to a lawsuit brought on by development company Stuck in the Rough regarding the defunct Escondido Country Club and plans to build hundreds of homes. City Attorney Jeffery Epp said part of the deal includes each party covering their own legal costs and a court ruling invalidated an open space initiative, which will remain in place and the city will not appeal. According to the settlement, Stuck in the Rough will withdraw its most recent application and will not be the applicant on any future development, although it retains the right to select the next developer. Stuck in the Rough, which is owned by developer Michael Schlesinger, announced plans to build more than 600 homes at the club after buying the land in December 2012. The latest proposal aimed to construct 270

residences, but came with strong pushback from the Escondido Country Club Homeowners (ECCHO) asking the council to declare the course an open space. Soon after the city complied with ECCHO’s request, Schlesinger filed suit. Schlesinger’s company, however, still maintains ownership rights of the course, but the city will not engage in another deal with Stuck in the Rough. Instead, any future development has been whittled down to three other groups, according to Epp. Those developers include KB Home, Zephyr and California West Communities, according to the settlement. He said the city would process any application, although those groups must work in concert with the city, along with residents on the course. Mayor Sam Abed, meanwhile, spoke to a group of ECCHO residents at the meeting saying, “We are with you, we stand by you.” In addition, Abed said residents have “a seat at the table,” and said the deal is a win and best possible outcome for the city moving forward. The mayor also spoke about how much of the agreement was done in

closed sessions, which is allowable under state law. The reason for Epp’s statement, he said, was to provide as much transparency as possible to residents. Deputy Mayor Mi-

chael Morasco added there is still much to discuss and review in the coming days and weeks. He, too, added the residents have “a seat at the table,” while councilman John Masson said the

council is committed to the process and will move forward in a positive way. As for Schlesinger, Abed said the city will not work with him “because we’ve seen how he deals with the city.”

The developer was fined $100,000 by the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District in September after spreading about five tons of chicken manure on the course in 2014.

Alzheimer’s rates expected CSUSM responds to demand for cybersecurity to double over next 20 years By Steve Puterski

By Ellen Wright

REGION — Over the next 20 years, the population of San Diegans over the age of 65 years old will more than double. As the population ages, the healthcare industry will be faced with challenges to accommodate the increase in degenerative diseases. This was the topic at a summit held last week by the San Diego North Economic Development Council with Tri-City Medical Center at the Veterans Association of North County. One of the focuses of the summit was the effect Alzheimer’s has on San Diegans. It is the third leading cause of death in the city, according to Mary Ball, president and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties. The disease has no cure, nor treatment and many families are forced to become caregivers for the duration of the disease, which can last between eight and 10 years. Leslie Ray, senior epidemiologist with the County of San Diego said the city is facing an epidemic. “This is a huge epidemic that is upon us and we have to do something with how we manage this disease or we’re going to face a real disaster,” said Ray. The most powerful force affecting the regional healthcare system, according to Director of Rehabilitation at Scripps Michael Lobatz, MD, is the generational change. He said it will not only affect those needing care, but it will have emotional and economic effects on those taking over the caregiver role. One of the challenges many family caregivers face is that care for Alzheimer patients often isn’t reimbursable, even though a quarter

of all Medicare spending is used on people from the Baby Boomer generation with Alzheimer’s. People born between 1946 and 1964 are considered Baby Boomers. Another issue faced within the healthcare community is the lack of a universally accepted diagnostic tool to recognize the symptoms of the disease. A roundtable discussion was formed out of representatives from research institutes about a year ago to address the problem and Lobatz said, the doctors involved have come up with a quick screening tool which is being used as a pilot program by a select group of primary care doctors. “We’ve developed a simple, algorithmically driven screening process for a primary care physician to be able to make an initial impression within five or six minutes of seeing that patient,” said Lobatz. The doctors will give feedback and continue to work on the system, which Lobatz believes, could make a big difference in diagnosing patients with Alzheimer’s. While strides in diagnosis are extremely important Ball said the most important hurdle to stopping the disease is finding a drug. “At the end of the day we need a drug that will slow this disease,” said Ball. As a component to the clinical roundtables, the doctors are addressing this need and discussing progress. “A lot of work has been put into it and we’re starting to make some progress,” Ball said. In the mean time, Lobatz said the county will upload the diagnosis algorithm to the county’s website so more doctors and patients can access it.

SAN MARCOS — As the world becomes more virtually connected day by day, the need for quality cybersecurity is in high demand. As a result, the brain trust at Cal State University San Marcos has launched a unique master’s program — the only one of its kind in California — in conjunction with industry leaders to combat cyber threats. Deans Jim Hammerly (college of business administration) and Katherine Kantardjieff (science and mathematics) partnered to bring a cohort program for working adults to the school, which launched on Sept. 8. The cohort philosophy brings a group of students — this semester the total is 12 — through the program together over the next 2 ½ years, with the final semester saved for a semester in residence, an “internship on steroids” within the cybersecurity industry, Hammerly and Kantardjieff said. “It’s the first of its kind,” he added. “We don’t see it (cybersecurity) dying out anytime soon.” One of Hammerly’s primary goals is to keep pace with market demand, and in cybersecurity, the field is only expected to grow. Kantardjieff, meanwhile, began the process of creating the program about three years ago. With input from university advisory boards and industry leaders, she was able to create a curriculum based on the needs of the industry. Included in the process were the San Diego Cyber Center of Excellence, the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation and a cyber industry advisory committee.

Although the degree is a master’s of Science, Kantardjieff said the partnership with the college of business is also beneficial because of the unique aspects of the courses. While the program features classes such as cryptography, it also includes regulatory, financial, business and risk assessment courses. Those business classes are to assist the students in identifying numerous potential problems within an entity instead of just focusing on the technical aspects of cybersecurity. Perhaps the most impressive aspect was how fast the Cal State University Chancellor’s office approved the program. Kantardjieff said the proposal was submitted in May and given the green light in June. While the class has

only 12 students — who attend at nights Tuesday through Thursday — she expects the program to reach its goal of 24 to 25 students next year. In addition, since word of the program has begun to spread, she said future plans may include cohorts to work with a specific company. “The classes would be on-site or live streamed,” Kantardjieff added. “The one hallmark of this program … is we didn’t do it in a vacuum. We did it in collaboration with industry leaders from day one. It was a case of what do we need to do to help that (cybersecurity).” The creation of the program also helps with the school’s budding military veteran enrollment, which already have government security clearances and are looking to transition from the armed forces into the

private sector. “There is a need to retool the workforce and take it to the next level,” Kantardjieff said. As for the cost, the program runs at $30,172 ($794 per unit) for the degree, although financial aid is available. As for admissions, students must have a baccalaureate degree in computer science, a related field with equivalent work experience, In addition, students must have earned a 3.0 GPA in their upper-division undergrad computer science courses and at least a 2.5 GPA in the last 60 semester (or 90 quarter) units attempted. Students must also have two letters of recommendation unless they are sponsored by their employer, be U.S. citizens and are subject to a possible background check.

Agencies ready for Homeless Connection event ¡Caramba! ¡Que lastima! where to start. Some begin at square one and need a social security card and California identification. Bassett said there will be services on hand to help people to get documents they need. “It’s about getting people informed,” Bassett said. “People are typically very happy we’re there. They honestly want to get off the street.” Other services that will be provided include flu shots, medical screenings, CalFresh food assistance and health insurance signups. Bassett said he is still recruiting professionals to volunteer to give haircuts, veterinary services

and provide transportation or bus passes for the day. Representatives from the DMV and veterans programs are also welcome to share expertise and donations will be put to good use. Bassett said the last North County Homeless Connection was held in Del Mar in 2012. He added the event draws families, veterans and single men and women in need. The event is organized by members of the Alliance for Regional Solutions. It will be held at the Bread of Life Rescue Mission, located at 1919 Apple Street in Oceanside from 10 a.m. to

5 p.m. Oct. 10. The Bread of Life Rescue Mission distributes donated food to those in need at locations throughout North County year round. The rescue mission also serves hot food at its soup kitchen, and houses men and women in its 50bed winter shelter. Individuals in its winter shelter program have a case manager and are usually successful in gaining employment and becoming self-sufficient. Referrals are made for individuals with mental and physical health issues that prevent them from working. For more information on the event, contact Bassett at (760) 521-8722.

T

he longer I live in Southern California, the more I wish I had a gift for languages. I speak no foreign language fluently but I am the queen of throwaway phrases. Never mind that I took German in elementary school and sweated through years of Spanish in high school and college. Somehow I never got out of the present tense. And my vocabulary needs work. When my children used to ask me to help drill them on something or translate something, I was sharply reminded of mi muchas defectos. They laughed at me — in Spanish. My mastery of Español is such a spotty thing. I once had a professor tell me I spoke like a native when I read out loud in class. I was a silver-tongued devil that could never quite remember whether pato meant a duck or a foot, or whether I had just told someone they were cute or a piece of bacon. I learned several bits of slang that really made me sound like I had the language down, but it’s all flash and no substance. I have sworn several times over the years to immerse myself in it and really master it, but no one has offered to send me to Puerto Vallarta for six months. I can stumble along in what linguists scathingly call “Spanglish,” and have done so many times with patient, helpful Spanish speakers. I have managed to help tour-

ists fill out customs cards, gotten students to bring back library books and told secrets to my husband in front of my children. But more often I am desperately frustrated when I can craft a third of what I want to say and then come up empty on the crucial phrase or tense needed. There was, for instance, the time I flew down to Cabo San Lucas on a whim to meet my husband for the weekend. My words of wisdom here are, talk to your travel agent first. An unplanned jaunt down to the tip of Baja left me there without the proper paperwork to get home. I stood in the middle of the Cabo airport, six months pregnant and terrified. I had no idea how long I might be stuck there, but I began thinking up Spanish names for my unborn child. Not only did I not know enough Spanish to explain my problem convincingly, I remember even less when I am in panic mode. (That sort of explains most of my test grades, too.) What phrases do I have down cold? Well, there is “¿Como se dice en Español …?” which is probably my favorite. If I can’t remember how to say something, there’s a good chance the person I’m talking to can enlighten me. My other standby is “Habla mas despacio, por favor.” If I am to simultaneously translate, or even belatedly translate, it requires them to speak at the pace of a robot low on batteries. I’ll keep at it, though, in my slow and occasional fashion. But the minute someone offers a “Learn Spanish the Luxurious Way” cruise to Mexico, I’m first in line.

San Marcos man behind Maker Faire’s ‘Battle Pond’ By Aaron Burgin

REGION — Last weekend, a 27,000-gallon “ocean” in front of the San Diego Air and Space Museum will host eight rousing World War II-

era battles between battleships, heavy cruisers, light cruisers and submarines of the Axis and Allied powers. And at the center of the action is San Marcos resi-

A battle pond, like the one pictured, was be set up at Balboa Park Oct. 3 and Oct. 4 during the inaugural Maker’s Faire. Courtesy photo

dent Rob Wood. Wood, who recently moved from the Bay Area to North County, has organized these “battles” — waged between radio-controlled robotic model warships — since 2007 in the Bay Area. On Oct. 3 and Oct. 4, Balboa Park played host to the city’s first Battle Pond as part of the inaugural Balboa Park Maker Faire, billed as a “family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.”

“We’re really excited about bringing the action to San Diego,” said Wood, who moved to San Marcos in May after living in the Bay Area for 33 years. “It is definitely a unique experience.” The battle takes place on the 27,000-gallon pool, which is populated with 20 three- to six-foot-long wooden replica battleships outfitted with ball-bearing artillery. During a battle, selected audience members get to control a ship’s direction and gunfire with a remote

control, while the crowd cheers for their “team” (the audience is divided into Axis vs. Allies). The side with the last floating ship is the winner. Videos of Battle Ponds in the Bay Area show thousands of people populating rows of bleachers around the pond, cheering as the opponent’s ships are pelted with cannon fire. For the first time out in San Diego, Wood said the bleachers would only fit 600 people, but he expected seats to go fast because of

the demographic San Diego serves. “I think the battle pond is definitely one of most popular attractions in the Bay Area, and it is not a Navy town,” Wood said. “Even though it’s the first year, San Diego is a Navy town. I think that when word gets out and if it is promoted properly, a lot of active duty and retired Navy people will be coming to these battles.” Wood said that the Western Warship Combat Club, of which he is a member, just finished building seven cruisers that will be operated by people chosen out of the audience — one will be reserved for an active-duty naval officer — which also will generate more interest in the event. “It’s addicting,” he said. Wood, who describes himself as having “Navy in my blood,” got his start in model ship warfare in 2002, after he decided to give up his longtime hobby of giant-scale model airplane racing. “It is very competitive and very expensive,” he said. “In those races you have these huge mid-air collisions that destroy the planes, and I was tired of going home with my pride and joy in a garbage bag.” He saw his first battle in 2002 and “got hooked.” Wood said he is excited to get others hooked in his new home region after seeing it become so popular in the Bay Area.

That’s what Terry Vazquez had to do to earn the title of Oktoberfest Queen in 1986. “I practiced by carrying 120-pound oak ‘biscuits’ (cross-sections of a tree trunk),” she explains, shouting over the polka music coming from the stage at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center. “I love this event. I come every year.” Vazquez is one of more than three-dozen women who have competed for the annual title through the years. The queen of queens, Bonnie Kelso, carried a world-record 21 steins (105 pounds) in 1974. Her sister and daughter also earned royal titles in 1980 and 1994 respectively. Tonight, though, Vazquez is not here to compete. She just wants to enjoy the festivities — the music, dancing, contests and German food and beer that comprise one of the

When the party was over, their guests were hooked and wanted a repeat performance the following year. So was born a tradition that has endured for 45 years and grown larger every year. When asked why Big Bear Lake is an ideal place for Oktoberfest, Hans replies “better in the pines than the palms. This is the perfect setting.” Hans and Erika Bandows have passed the Oktoberfest torch to their daughter and her husband. These

days, Hans sits back, enjoys the party and relishes his title of burgermeister. Organizers say that this year’s revelers will consume about 5,000 potato dumplings, 2,000 slices of apple strudel, and thousands of pounds of German sausages, potato salad and sauerkraut. There will be plenty of imported German beer, entertainment by bands from Germany and contests: beer-drinking (with non-alcoholic beer); log-sawing; beer pong and more. (No charge to enter any of the contests and sign-ups are just prior to the competitions.) There also are activities for children and shopping on the Budenstrasse (Avenue of Booths). More

than two dozen beers are on tap — both American and German — and include non-alcoholic and gluten-free selections. Not only is the weather and alpine setting reminiscent of the Bandows’ homeland, but the Bavarian theme carries into the architecture of Big Bear Village where there is a strong autumn/Halloween vibe. More than 40 scarecrows can be found throughout the village — all within walking distance. Each reflects one of six themes, and the public will judge the winners in each category. Merchants will play host to the town’s trick-or-treaters on Halloween, providing a safe place for kids to collect their goodies. Visitors who haven’t been to Big Bear Village in a while will notice changes: new hardscape and landscape; outdoor fire pits; new lighting and signage; and flowers everywhere, And for those cold and snowy winter days for which everyone is hoping, there are heated sidewalks. Big Bear Oktoberfest runs weekends through Oct. 31. A free shuttle service to your lodging’s door is available for those who feel that driving home is not a good choice. Designated drivers get free coffee and soft drinks all night. For information about activities, restaurants and lodging at Big Bear Lake, visit bigbear.com or call (800) 424-4232.

Protecting Our Freedoms The bold, shameless leering of David Zaitzeff is legendary around Seattle’s parks, and more so since he filed a civil complaint against the city in September challenging its anti-voyeurism law for placing a “chilling effect” on his photography of immodestly dressed women in public. Though he has never been charged with a crime, he roams freely (and apparently joyously) around short- skirted and swimsuit-clad “gals” while himself often wearing only a thong and bearing a “Free Hugs and Kisses” sign. Zaitzeff’s websites “extol” public nudity, wrote the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and explain, for example, that a woman who angles her “bod” to offer a view of “side boob” is fair game for his camera. Zaitzeff’s complaint — that the law criminalizes photography of a person’s “intimate areas” (clothed or not) without explicit permission — is distressing him. Democracy Blues Randy Richardson, 42, vying unopposed for the Riceville, Iowa, school board (having agreed to run just because he has two kids in school) failed to get any votes at all — as even he was too busy on election day (Sept. 8) to make it to the polls (nor were there any write-ins). To resolve the 0-0 result, the other board members simply appointed Richardson to the office. Riceville, near the Minnesota border, is a big-time farming community, and registered voters queried by The Des Moines Register said they just had too much fieldwork to do that day. Leading Economic Indicators The serpentine queue extended for blocks in September in Lucknow, India, after the state government of Uttar Pradesh announced 368 job openings (almost all menial) — eventually resulting in about 2.3 million applications, 200,000 from people with advanced degrees (even though the $240/month positions required only a fifth-grade education, according to an Associated Press dispatch). About 13 million young people enter India’s job market each year. Finer Points of the Law People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a federal lawsuit in California in September on behalf of an endangered crested black macaque that wandered up to an unattended camera on a tripod and clicked a selfie. The camera belonged to photographer David Slater, who claimed copyright to the photo even though “Naturo” actually snapped it. The shot might be valuable to Naturo since it has become viral on the Internet. (Though the photo was taken in Indonesia, Slater’s publisher is based in California.)

As stages get bigger, Hozier comes out of his shell By Alan Sculley

Hozier admits that, as someone who is naturally rather introverted, he’s had to work to get used to playing in front of the increasingly large audiences that are populating his shows in the wake of the huge success of his hit single, “Take Me To Church.” “It certainly was a very steep learning curve,” he said in a recent phone interview. “I was very much in my comfort zone, I think, on smaller stages with more intimate audiences. You know, last summer (2014) we played a lot of huge stages at music festivals and stuff. It was something that was quite a steep learning (curve) for me. Even still, I’m not the most extroverted of performers on stage… But the more that I gig and the more that I get to see audiences enjoy the music, the more I kind of enjoy this and the more, I suppose, I’m drawn to it. I get to enjoy it more and worry less about that.” In fact, Hozier showed he could handle one of the most intimidating moments an artist can face during the Grammy Awards on Feb. 9. With a live audience filled with some of the biggest names in music looking on and millions of viewers tuned in on television, he Hozier, the 25-year-old Irish singer/songwriter/guitarist, will perform at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air took the stage to perform Theatre Oct. 15 Photo by Alex Lake

“Take Me To Church” — with Annie Lennox joining him on vocals near the end of the song. That song then segued into a powerhouse version of the Screaming Jay Hawkins classic, “I Put A Spell On You” (with Lennox delivering a mesmerizing and thrilling vocal on that song). The two-song performance was widely considered the highlight of the Grammys telecast. Hozier was a featured part of the Grammys this year because “Take Me To Church” was nominated for Song of the Year. It lost out to Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.” But for an artist who only released his debut album last September, the events of recent months have been quite the whirlwind for the 25-year-old Irish singer/songwriter/guitarist. “I mean, all of this, in many ways I’m still astounded by it,” Hozier said. “The success of ‘Take Me To Church,’ I never imagined it. I never imagined that it would work on radio, that it would find its way onto the charts, even at home and certainly not in America. So in many ways, celebrating the Grammy nominations, performing at the Grammys, the shows that we’re playing now in America, they surpass what TURN TO HOZIER ON 13

I maybe dared to dream of, so I’m thrilled, absolutely thrilled.” Hozier’s sound began to come together in 2013 when he made a demo of “Take Me To Church” with producer Robert Kirwan. It was the first recording that truly captured the gritty sound rooted in blues, soul, gospel and jazz that Hozier had been chasing. A video was then made that tied into the song’s message about the connections between sex, love and humanity — and specifically Hozier’s support for equal rights for gays and disdain for the religious denominations, governments and other entities that denounce homosexuality as sinful and offensive to God. The video ends with footage of vigilantes attacking a gay man while his partner helplessly watches in horror. The video was posted on You Tube on Sept. 25, 2013 and within days it topped 200,000 views. That total is now more than 30 million. The video went viral just a few weeks after Hozier’s debut EP, “Take Me To Church,” had been released. The You Tube activity got the attention of bigger worldwide labels, and Hozier was signed by Columbia Records in America. Songs from the “Take Me To Church EP, a second EP, “From Eden” (released in March 2014), and some newer songs were assembled to create Hozier’s self-titled

debut album, which was released this past September. The album shows that Hozier is a talented and versatile songwriter. The soulful “Take Me To Church” has a hymn-like, gospel-tinged sound. “Angel of Small Death and the Codeine Scene” takes that sound in a more energetic direction. Things get rockier and grittier on the bluesy, guitar-spiked “Jackie and Wilson.” Other highlights of “Hozier” include the grooving soul-pop tune “Someone New,” the tense and stark “To Be Alone” and a prettier, but unsettling, ballad, “In A Week.” “Take Me To Church,” naturally enough, became the album’s lead single and reached number two on Billboard magazine’s all-genre Hot 100 singles chart in December. Now with the exposure from the Grammys, Hozier has become one of 2015’s breakout stars. He’s currently touring the states with a seven-piece band, hitting a mix of theaters and amphitheaters into late October, and playing a set goes a bit beyond just the 13 songs included on the self-titled album. “There were a few of the songs that were released as kind of bonus tracks, so we have a few of those in the sets,” Hozier said. “And there are one or two covers. It’s something that we might do for fun, like a pop cover that we might change up and have some fun with. Or I might play some blues music, which was very influential to me.”

An evening with the author ESCONDIDO — Escondido Public Library and KPBS invites the community to join them for “An Evening with Jimmy Gownley,” at 6 p.m. Oct. 21 at 239 S. Kalmia St. Gownley is the author of “The Dumbest Idea Ever!,” selected as the 2015 One Book, One San Diego teen read.

A book-signing will follow his talk, and copies will be available for purchase for $10 with cash or credit card. Pre-register online at kpbs.org/one-book/teens. The Turrentine Room will open at 5:15 p.m. Gownley focuses on

his adolescence as a popular and smart basketball star who was forced to miss a month of classes due to a serious case of chicken pox and pneumonia.

O’side’s Tia Blanco wins ISA World Surfing gold By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — Tia Blanco, of Oceanside, landed a first place win in this summer’s ISA World Surfing championships. “I never won anything that big,” Blanco said. “I would always get second.” “I believed in myself, and knew I could do it,” she added. “A lot of it is mental.”

The final competition was held in Playa Popoyo, Nicaragua. Waves were reported to be 6 to 12 feet. Unlike most competitions, that run three to four days, the ISA championships is 10 days long. “I gave it my best, and tried not to peak too early,” Blanco said. “I was confident through the whole event. The (USA) team was very encouraging. The energy was positive.” “It was an amazing experience,” she added. “It’s a lot of hard work, but the feeling of winning is so rewarding.” Oceanside City Council recognized Blanco for her victory at its Sept. 16 meeting. Blanco, 18, has been surfing since she was 3 years old, but did not start competing until she was 11. “I won my first contest

by putting everything I had into it,” Blanco said. Since then she has competed regularly, which has not always been easy. In addition to her dedication to a healthy diet, rigorous training and time in the water, she has faced the challenge of relocations. Her father served in the Marines for 20 years, and retired this year. Luckily he has been consistently stationed by an ocean. Blanco was born in Puerto Rico and has lived in California and Hawaii. “We moved a bunch,” Blanco said. She said it got scary when there was a possibility that her dad would be stationed in Alabama, but it all worked out. “Alabama is not very surfing-oriented,” Blanco said. Her father’s final station assignment was Camp

Pendleton. Blanco said now that her dad is retired, she and her family can call Oceanside their permanent home. “We’ll always be near the ocean,” Blanco said. Blanco said along with its demands, surfing in competitions also brings world travel and meeting new friends. She said even on the ISA World tour, which invites 27 international teams that speak different languages, friendships are made by traveling and surfing together. Blanco said she will continue to surf in junior competitions for one more year. She added she is beginning to get her feet wet in professional surf contests, and is working to qualify for next year’s pro series. Blanco will also be competing in a junior ISA event in Oceanside later this month.

The Padres are done and no, this wasn’t written in mid-summer. Although it could have been and that’s the biggest disappointment in a season with many. After suffering through insufferable baseball for four years, 2015 was to be different. General manager A.J. Preller tore apart the Padres’ roster and presented a new-and-improved version. Nearly everyone bought it but there was never a payoff. Instead the season to remember morphed into more of the same. The Padres finished underwater for the fifth straight year and for the ninth, the playoffs are held without them. We give Preller high marks for being bold. In many ways, his aggressive approach worked as attendance was up, ratings were improved and the Padres were a slight diversion from 24/7 Chargers stadium talk. But the chatter now is how to fix this mess? First up is naming a manager. Following his swing-and-miss in the grand interim manager Pat Murphy experiment, Preller needs to hit a home run. Preller knows the golden rule of being a GM: you seldom get two shots at a full-time manager. If Preller fails on this one, there’s no guarantee he’ll be around to hire the replacement. There was little news in Preller’s year-end briefing. He’s determined to select someone who’ll bring a winner to San Diego. In other headlines, there was another spiffy sunset outside Preller’s home near Encinitas’ Moonlight Beach. But Preller can’t dilly or dally in naming Murphy’s successor. With so many teams seeking a new leader, if Preller stalls, the best candidates could be off the market. Still, Preller gave no time frame. He didn’t tip his hand on whether he wanted experience or a newbie. He didn’t say if

the team sought a screamand-holler guy or someone warm-and-fuzzy. More than speculating on the type of manager, Preller made it clear his players let him down. His knack of mixing-and-matching big names with big resumes was a big bummer. “Somebody who has presence, somebody that has energy, somebody that can get our players to play at a high level,’’ Preller said of what he needs in a skipper. “Someone the players will respect and want to play for. Someone the organization can rally around and can establish a culture. Those are factors.’’ That job description is a given. But reading between the tealeaves reveals the bunch Preller collected didn’t have much want-to. It says his players under performed. It says his players didn’t appreciate their superiors and their performances reflected just that. That doesn’t shine a positive light on Preller as he didn’t consider chemistry. Or if he did, his beaker was a bit askew. Yes he acquired wellknown players; no he didn’t build a team. So the manager’s role will include building camaraderie as much as a pitching staff — of constructing a winning atmosphere as much as assembling a lineup. If Preller decides continuity is the way to go, Cardiff’s Dave Roberts is ready. He played in the majors at the highest level, he’s coached first base and he’s been a bench coach for the last two Padres managers. Roberts is a classic overachiever — drafted lower than Johnny Manziel — and would demand his players put out inside of acting like they are being put upon. Or Preller could go for some proven fire and can anyone match what’s in Ozzie Guillen’s belly? The Venezulean would be a great fit, speaking the language of many of the Latin American players. But his words, no matter the language, would be delivered with conviction. Hire one of those two guys. Then get busy moving parts or talking the owners out of more dough. TURN TO PADRES ON 18

sate, a chemical found in weed killing products as Roundup, which is being sprayed to keep tree saplings from re-sprouting. Michelle Heaton, a Del Dios resident since 1978, said she wasn’t in agreement with the nonprofit’s use of spraying glyphosate on the grounds, adding that they’ll have to spray it for several years to prevent saplings from sprouting. “This is not our land, we understand that,” Heaton said. “However, it’s been open to the public forever. This is a potable source of drinking water. (They’re) using known carcinogenics next to and on the ground at the lake shore.” But according to Lan Wiborg, deputy director of long range planning with the city of San Diego, the city complies with state law regarding the use of herbicides near drinking water reservoirs. The city takes water samples on a quarterly basis, Wiborg said, with the most recent testing being done on June 6. Samples are analyzed for glyphosate at the city’s water quality laboratory using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved methods, explained Wiborg. The laboratory detection limit is 10 parts per billion. Glyphosate, according to Wiborg, has not been detected in any of the samples, including the most recent sampling dates of Jan. 5, April 6, and June 6, of this year. “The most recent analysis revealed that no herbicides were detected,” said Wiborg. “The USEPA has set a maximum contaminant level for glyphosate in drinking water of 700 parts per billion. This level is judged to be protective of human health.” Around Hodges, the project is using two methods of applying the herbicides — the first is distributing glyphosate through a backpack sprayer and the other, by painting another herbicide called garlon onto tree stumps, a method known as “cut stump.” Lance Cottington has lived near the lake for

T he C oast News -I nland E dition about nine years. He is part of the grass roots group of residents that are contending against the tree removal and spraying. “We just feel like it’s too much, too quick, it’s ill-conceived and not properly thought out,” Cottington said of the project. “This lake is a very bio diverse area…we feel that (the project) is endangering that diversity,” Cottington said. “You can’t come into a place that is a world-renowned bird area and take out 60 to 80 percent of the trees and think you’re not making a difference. I don’t see how you can do that.” He added: “We feel the trees definitely need attention. The whole place needs to be attended to. It needs to be attended to in a proper forestry manner.” “The trees and other plants being removed around the reservoir are invasive and not native,” said Wiborg. “The presence of these non-native plant species affects the

health of the reservoir. The project will remove invasive and non-native plants such as eucalyptus, palm trees, pepper trees, Arundo, and acacia within a 90-acre project area around the reservoir. A significant project benefit will be that the restored drainages around the reservoir will attenuate urban runoff flows and remove pollutants, thus, helping to protect water quality in the city’s reservoir.” Cottington said that he and other residents feel the city of San Diego, which owns the reservoir, has neglected its duties in taking care of its water resources for years. San Diego officials said the city maintains the property, in part, through the Department of Public Utilities’ invasive plant control program as well as through annual brush management on property adjacent to residences for fire fuel reduction.

Escondido looks back at Hollandia Dairy ESCONDIDO — Learn about local history when the Escondido Public Library, and the Friends of the Escondido Library Pioneer Room, host “The Story of Hollandia Dairy,” presented by second-generation owner, Arie de Jong, at 6 p.m. Oct. 20 in the Turrentine Room at 239 S. Kalmia St. Local dairyman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist de Jong tells the story of North San Diego County’s Hollandia Dairy, founded by de Jong’s father in 1950. It is the story of an immigrant family of 12 leaving the Netherlands and risking everything to create a new life for themselves in Escondido.

the ecosystems on which we all rely. As critical imbalances around the world endanger delicate cultures and resources, we stand committed to actively providing simple, creative and culturally adaptive solutions to correct them. We’ve seen many conservation efforts become ineffective by becoming confrontational. But we understand that our supporters want to make a difference that’s true and lasting. That’s why, as ambassadors for both natural and human cultures, we are unwaveringly dedicated to adaptable and integrative sustainability by way of education, and to helping leave the tiniest footprints as we make greater strides toward healthier natural communities. Our two main programs are aquaponics (at home and in the classroom), a sustainable agriculture technique, and fuel-efficient cook stoves. In the past three years, we have supported over 400 classrooms, reaching thousands of students. We also hold monthly workshops about using aquaponics at home. Since this gardening technique uses 90 percent less land and water than traditional farming, it is growing in popularity throughout our parched state. Cook stoves in Mexico and Uganda: Making dinner shouldn’t be fatal, but millions of people in the developing world die each year from illnesses connected to inhaling smoke from open cooking fires in their homes. For every $150 donated toward our stove program, ECOLIFE® builds and installs a highly efficient wood burning stove and enters the stove into a health and monitoring system. ECOLIFE® works: The Patsari stove is 60 percent more fuel-efficient than cooking over the traditional open fire and reduces respiratory ailments by at least 35 percent by decreasing hazardous smoke emissions. The fuel efficiency of the stove means that 60

De Jong’s story will appeal to all local history enthusiasts interested in North County — then and now. The story of Hollandia Dairy is sponsored by the Pioneer Room Friends, a support group dedicated to preserving and promoting Escondido Public Library’s local history and genealogy archive. This presentation will be part of its annual meeting. Library programs are free and open to the public.

KPRI originally began in 1996 as Sets 102 FM by Schwartz and co-owner Robert John Hughes. The station was best known for its format of playing two- or three-song sets of a single artist’s music in a row. In 1995, Hughes and Schwartz purchased the 102.1 frequency and in 2002 changed

the call letters to KPRI, a nod to San Diego’s original rock station that went off the air during the 1980s. “KPRI has been a true labor of love,” Hughes said to All-Access. “All I can say is: I thank each and every one who has helped us create and sustain a truly amazing radio station.”

You have some serious culinary talent participating in this event. Tell me about who you have this year and their affinity for ECOLIFE® We’re extremely fortunate to have a close relationship with Trey Foshee from George’s at the Cove and Galaxy Taco. In 2013 we partnered with him to create a team of chefs to prepare the meal for our gala and it has become a tradition ever since. Every year we have grown in attendance so we have added chefs. Both Trey and Jason Knibb from NINE-TEN have been a part of our lineup all three years. Matt Gordon from Urban Solace, Solace & The Moonlight Lounge and Sea & Smoke, joined the team last year and was happy to help again this year. We’re excited to welcome Jason McLeod from Ironside Fish and Oyster and Fabian Gallardo from Petty Cash Taqueria in Los Angeles. We are also very lucky to have Christopher Kostow from The Restaurant at Meadowood in Napa Valley to create the canapés for our VIP cocktail. Chef Kostow has been awarded three stars from the Michelin Guide in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. I really can’t say enough about these chefs. Not only are they taking time away from their restaurants on a Saturday night, they are also completely donating their time and the food they create. I think what draws them back each year is the fun environment and the chance to come together and work as a team.

The event has a Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead theme. Are you encouraging attendees to come in costume and makeup? We are definitely encouraging our guests to dress in Dia de los Muertos theme! Each year of the past few years, we’ve decided to pick a theme and our guests have really embraced it. They welcome the chance to dress up instead of sticking to the typical black tie or cocktail attire. There is a musical element to the event as well. Tell me about that. The entertainment will be provided by the AP Latin Jazz Ensemble. This dynamic group of musicians is led by Allan Phillips. Allan is a multi-instrumentalist, Venezuelan born, of African descent. Allan’s raw, energetic percussion, keyboard, wind, string and vocal performances have him in high demand for live as well as studio engagements. Every year we have a great time on the dance floor after dinner and this year we’ll be salsa dancing the night away! We’re lucky to also have a couple that has volunteered to teach a few salsa moves so that everyone can participate in the fun. When and where is the event taking place and how can people get involved? The event will be held on a private property in North Escondido (address provided upon registration) Oct. 24. The VIP cocktail (additional purchase) will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. with the main event from 5 to 10 p.m.

Theirs is a premium estate wine with a small-lot handcrafted style. Their 13 acres are planted for Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sangiovese. A neighboring lot allows them to offer Viognier and Syrah. “I insist on only producing what I grow and keep my yields low.

The environmental report concludes that each of these concerns would be addressed with proper mitigation. In the case of additional students, the developer would be charged a fee for every square foot to both the San Marcos Unified and Vista Unified school districts. Traffic concerns would also be mitigated through the creation of a dedicated turn lanes on both the

The Highlands project was originally approved in 1990 by the property owner, Farouk Kubba, but has gone through a series of revisions and delays ever since. Previous iterations of the project in 1990, 1999, and 2002 were delayed by the economy, neighborhood resistance and delays by the developer. Originally the project called for 275 homes, but Kubba has decreased the number of units to 230 in 2002 and 189 in its most current form.

I might have saved the most interesting wine find for last, as I discovered a treasure trove of Sicilian wines at Il Fornaio in Coronado recently. Mandy Martinez, the representative at American Wines, walked us through the new releases at Planeta, considered the largest of the many wineries that dot the Sicilian landscape. Moscato is a well-known Italian sparkling wine and this one had it all going with its Noto Bianco finish. But the one that Sicily is rapidly becoming famous for is the Nero di Avola, a deep dusted red, finished in the Mt. Aetna region. Aetna is the most active volcano in Europe and yields the most rich of the Sicilian soils. It richly enhanced the Il Fornaio Analletti Forno Spaghetti al Gamberetti, a pasta with baked Italian ham, peas, Bolognese sauce and Mozzarella. See southernwine.com.
