Park soccer arena addition reconsidered

CSUSM hosts first matches as D-II school

By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Proposed renovations at Bub Williamson Park were a major topic of conversation at the Aug. 8 Vista City Council meeting. Neighbors living near the community park voiced concerns about a proposed soccer arena at the 9-acre park at the end of a residential street. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby said that the idea to rehab the park, a culmination of longtime discussions, began back in February. A few years ago, the City Council approved a $2.8 million renovation. The proposed renovations included a new lit soccer arena, two playgrounds for different age ranges, ADA-compliant restrooms and two dog parks to accommodate big and small dogs. “The soccer arena that was in the conceptual plan for that would take out the

SAN MARCOS — When Karly Dunning headed a free kick from teammate Jessica Harloe inside the right post to give Cal State San Marcos women’s soccer a 1-0 lead 11 minutes into an Aug. 31 game against Concordia University, a new era began. Dunning’s goal was the first point for a Cal State San Marcos team as a National Collegiate Athletics Association Division II institution. It was the realization of a decades-long process that technically completed July 9 when the NCAA notified the school it had completed its transition from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics to NCAA membership. The university celebrated its first Division II sporting events Aug. 31 before the women’s soccer team took to the field. “A goal is a goal, and a point is a point, but this goal meant that finally the recognition and credibility that our department may have lacked is now finally there,” university Athletic Director Jennifer Milo said. “I think this goal carries more weight, not that it means more, but it puts an exclamation point on how hard we’ve worked to get here.” “Getting here” dates back to before 2006, when the school began to build

two existing ball fields, take down the fence that is from the ball field to the free, passive grass area that is used right now for a lot of pickup games in football and soccer,” she said. “That fence would come down, and the soccer arena would take over a vast majority of the park that would be lost.” The original contractor opted out of the project. A new request for proposal is still on the backburner. Rigby said during the lag timeline of this process, she was contacted by a community member who shared that some residents were gathering for informal meetings about the park renovations matter. They were very upset about the negative impact of a soccer arena. Rigby attended one of those meetings. TURN TO PARK ON 7

OCEANSIDE — iFLY Indoor Skydiving opened for family fun Aug. 24. First to try out the facility were friends and family of the owner and VIP guests including city firefighters and pageant princesses. “Everybody truly enjoys it,” Christy Loiacono, iFLY director of sales, said. “It's an exciting, high-energy sport.” A mix of 3- to 80-year-olds were the first group to experience the sensation of flying inside the facility's massive vertical wind tunnel.



Participants suited up in a onepiece jumpsuit, earplugs and helmet. One at a time they entered the flight chamber. First they were individually guided by an instructor to acclimate to laying belly-down and being suspended by forced air. Then they joined hands with the instructor and propelled together to the top of the chamber, which exceeds 40 feet. Observing human flight was sensational. Experiencing it was described as magical.

New Palomar College complex underway SAN MARCOS — Construction has begun on a new Maintenance and Operations complex on Palomar College’s San Marcos campus. The 28,000-squarefoot complex will be located on the west side of the college, near the corner of Mission Road and Las Posas Road. With 28,000 square feet of space, the new set of buildings will replace the current Facilities department, which is now housed in eight separate buildings on the north side of campus. Noted for its energy-efficient design, the new facility is expected to have “net-zero” readiness when completed. Palomar College Superintendent-President Joi Lin Blake

said, “This new complex is truly state-of-the-art in terms of energy efficiency, and sets an example for the way all new buildings should be built.” Level 10 Construction is the general contractor for the project, in collaboration with BNIM Architects. “We believe that this project will have a major influence on how community colleges will view the long-term financial benefits of incorporating sustainable design strategies into their future building programs,” Mike Conroy, vice president of Operations for Level 10 Construction’s San Diego office, said. “The M&O building will be the most ‘green’ or sustain-

KAABOO works to lessen traffic, parking problems By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Organizers of KAABOO, a three-day entertainment and arts festival, have unveiled a plan to offset the venue’s impacts on traffic and parking. The festival kicks off Sept. 15 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and includes Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Pink, among others. The current ride-hailing system has been redesigned and is confined to one area near the Solana Gate entrance off Via de la Valle in the northwest portion of the fairgrounds. Uber and Lyft will only be allowed to drop off and pick up patrons inside the venue and not on city streets or in nearby neighborhoods. A staging area will provide seating, food for sale and restrooms for attendees while they await notification concerning pick up. Onsite parking is available but limited. KAABOO officials recommend purchasing passes in advance. Registration is now open for a direct coach bus to KAABOO that will drop attendees off in front of the event entrance.



up its athletics department with the intent to move on from the NAIA, which is largely composed of smaller, parochial colleges. Cal State San Marcos sought to join D-II to compete against schools of similar size and demographics. The move would also cut down on travel costs, as putting together a competitive national NAIA schedule required the school to schedule many of its athletic events out of state, including the Association of Independent Institutions conference tournaments, which are usually across the country. The university officially began its Division 2 candidacy in 2014, which included a three-year probationary period during which it could compete against Division II programs starting in 2015, but could not participate in postseason tournaments.

Traffic management plans also include shuttles to and from the Solana Beach train station and local hotels. There will also be two bike valets. Cyclists must bring their own locks. Bike parking will be available in the ride-hailing zone and adjacent to the main parking lot entrance on Jimmy Durante Boulevard. Eventgoers are also encouraged to use public transportation, such as the Coaster. KAABOO is a “uniquely curated adult escape sound voyage” offering music, comedy, cuisine, craft libations, contemporary art and personal indulgences. This year’s musical lineup also includes Muse, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Alanis Morissette, Jackson Browne, Kesha, The Wallflowers, Smash Mouth and more. Visit for tickets, parking passes and other information. Discounted passes are available to Del Mar and Solana Beach residents by calling (855) 798-5995. “It’s been for the last two years the missing link, but I think being able to get used to a CCAA (California Collegiate Athletics Association) schedule without the stress or pressure of postseason is great for us,” Milo said. “We’ve been able to build a true foundation without championships in mind, and worked on team culture and foundation so that when we were able to compete for those honors, all the essentials were in place and the foundation was laid so we could trust the process, which is going to equate to CCAA and NCAA championships.” The university also completed its 1,400-seat Sports Center, which houses its basketball and volleyball programs, last September. This was a critical part of the school’s transition and allowed for its teams to compete in front of true “home” crowds for the first time in program history.

We aim to achieve a rating of five out of seven ‘petals,’ which is one step above LEED and much more difficult to achieve.” Astl said that if Palomar’s M&O project gets this rating, the college will likely be “the first community college building in the world to get petal certified.” The Maintenance and Operations complex project is being funded with Proposition M

Migraine Surgery – A cutting edge surgical procedure now available in San Diego Migraines affect 18% of women and 6% of men in the united states. We spend about $1 billion in medical costs ever year on migraines and many patients find that drug treatments are incompletely effective. New approaches to the treatment of migraines have been developed based on the theory that some nerves may be irritated, entrapped, or compressed in the skin. Botox has been used to release these nerves but only lasts for 3-4 months at a time. Surgical release of these trigger points has been shown to reduce and even eliminate migraines in patients who cannot be treated by traditional medical management. The overall success rate of surgery is promising to anyone who suffers from these symptoms! What To Expect Iconic Plastic Surgery in Carlsbad is the only center in the San Diego area offering these cutting edge surgical treatments. The surgery involves an operation that releases the entrapped nerves in the major trigger sites. Patient are selected after having a confirmed diagnosis of migraine headache or chronic daily headache by a neurologist and after failure of medical management. At Iconic Plastic surgery, we will assess your headache and trigger site and tailor the migraine operation that fits for you. We may give you a trial of Botox, take a detailed history of your migraine duration, triggers, and locations,

or even use a diagnostic peripheral nerve block with a local anesthetic in the office. This way we can identify the trigger sites that will be amenable to surgical decompression. The four trigger sites include the frontal (forehead), temporal (side of the forehead), occipital (back of the head), and nasoseptal (nose). Depending on the trigger site needed to be released the surgical operation takes about 2 - 3 hours a n d y o u can go h o m e the same day! Normal healing is minimal and depends on the number of sites operated on. While results vary, studies have shown that significant improvement of elimination in migraines can be found in about 70% of patients. About Dr. D’Souza Dr. Gehaan D’Souza is a plastic surgeon affiliated with Tri-City Medical Center who believes in providing personalized, tai-

lored care so you leave feeling comfortable in your body. Dr. D’Souza trained at the Johns Hopkins University and completed his plastic surgery training from the University of California, San Diego. He also spent an additional year of training at the Cleveland Clinic where he studied migraine surgery and facial aesthetic surgery. He also specializes in facelifts, rhinoplasties, breast p ro c e d u re s , body cosmetic procedures, and laser proc e d u re s !

Renovations coming to Capitol By Marie Waldron

As a member of the Joint Rules Committee, we have been tasked with directing an upgrade or replacement for the rapidly deteriorating State Capitol Building Annex. The building was designed in the late 40's and completed in 1952 at a cost of $7.5 million. Originally intended to house a part-time Legislature, the Annex is home to the offices of the Governor and Lt. Governor, 115 of California’s 120 lawmakers, along with 1,400 executive branch and legislative staff. California’s main Capitol building, completed in 1874, is a historic treasure. However, after World War II it became obvious that the old building wasn’t

Heinous killers like Manson should never, ever go free California Focus By Thomas D. Elias Buried in the back pages of newspapers and not even making it onto many television and radio news programs this summer was the news that Gov. Jerry Brown again refused parole a member of the murderous Manson Family gang, while a parole board denied freedom to another. But these actions raised more questions than they answered. For example, should heinous killers like Charles Manson and most of his vicious followers ever be allowed back on the streets? What might new and younger governors with no personal memories of the Manson-inspired 1969 murder spree do when parole boards made up of their appointees recommend freedom for these and other murderers whose crimes are in some ways comparable. In his latest refusal of a Manson Family member’s parole bid, Brown denied release to Bruce Davis, convicted in 1972 in the slayings of musician Gary Hinman and movie stuntman Donald (Shorty) Shea. Brown did not deny that Davis has improved himself and gone 25 years with no prison discipline for misconduct. But, he said, these things are “outweighed by negative factors … incredibly heinous and cruel offenses like these constitute the ‘rare circumstances’ in which the crime alone can justify a denial of parole.” Brown’s action came within a day of a ruling by a parole panel at the California Institute for Women in Corona blocking release for former Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel, whose lawyer insisted she only went along with the Manson murders because of physical abuse by Manson. The board wasn’t buying it, perhaps because Krenwinkel was one of several “Manson girls” who came to court daily during their trials with X’s carved into their foreheads as signs of continuing support for Manson. Krenwinkel was one of those who cut power and telephone lines at the Beverly Hills-area estate of actress Sharon Tate and then murdered her and four others, stabbing them over and over. The next night, she helped kill grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary in the Hollywood Hills, helping carve the word “WAR” into one victim’s stomach and scrawling other words in blood near the victims’ bodies.

Besides the murders themselves, one troubling part of all this is that parole boards persistently recommend release for some Manson followers. They are perhaps the best-known of many sadistic California killers, including the likes of Edmund Kemper, the Santa Cruz area’s “Coed Killer” of the 1960s and ‘70s, and Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris, the notorious “Tool Box Killers” who kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered five young women in Southern California in 1979. While Brown has said that some serious criminals can “change their thinking,” he has always left the Manson Family killers out of that category. No one knows if future governors will do the same. That’s why it’s high time the Legislature created a new category of crime, one whose perpetrators can never be considered for parole. Had such a law existed when the Mansons and some others were convicted, relatives of the victims would not have to feel compelled to attend parole hearings and revive their pain every few years just to make sure the most brutal of murderers don’t go free. For sure, the Manson followers have been like a plague on California’s consciousness that’s impossible to eradicate. They keep trying for parole and Brown keeps saying no, as did predecessors Gray Davis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Perhaps these killers are encouraged by the success a few of their former pals in the Family had in getting released: Linda Kasabian in the 1970s as part of a plea deal that saw her provide key testimony against Manson and friends, Steve Grogan in 1985 for leading authorities to the body of Shea on the Spahn Movie Ranch near the Los Angeles suburb of Chatsworth and Lynette (Squeaky) Fromme in 2009, more than 30 years after she tried to shoot then-President Gerald Ford. None of those three, however, participated in the Tate or LaBianca killings. The repeated parole attempts are certainly within the legal rights of all convicted killers, but they should not be. It’s high time legislators make sure no future governor can ever lose this worst sort of criminal back on the public.

large enough to handle the needs of a growing state. The Annex, at approximately 365,000 square feet, solved that problem for decades. Safety issues are a primary concern. Last year, the Annex was visited by 1.5 to 2 million people, including tens of thousands of school children. The Annex contains hazardous building materials such as asbestos and lacks adequate fire protection. There are electrical wiring and ductwork issues along with deteriorating galvanized sewer and drainage lines. Today, the building is overcrowded and fails to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standards. The Annex was built long before comput-

ers, photocopiers and cell phones, with rows of empty wooden phone booths still dominating some of the hallways. Many of the building’s “key systems are in the 65th year of their expected 50 year useful life.” The old Capitol building was extensively upgraded in the 1970s and 80s, but these upgrades did not include the Annex. Modernizing technology, enhancing visitor access and upgrading safety compliance will bring "the people's house" into the 21st century. Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes Escondido, Fallbrook, San Marco and Vista.

Taxing water won’t make it more affordable By Mark Muir

The Water Authority and its 24 member agencies have an unyielding commitment to providing a safe and reliable water supply for 3.3 million people at a reasonable cost. For San Diego County, that results in a constant, drought-resilient supply of water that meets rigorous state and federal quality standards. It’s not like that everywhere in California. Some rural, low-income communities face a different reality: their drinking water contains elevated levels of contaminants such as nitrates and arsenic. This public health issue and social justice challenge demands focused leadership by state officials to solve. Unfortunately, legislation under consideration in Sacramento would magnify the very problems it was designed to address by imposing a statewide tax. The tax would add approximately $130 million a year to residential and commercial water bills. Additionally, it would add approximately $30 million in taxes on fertilizer and dairy products. As a regional public

water agency, we absolutely support the intent of the bill – which is to improve the quality of drinking water in disadvantaged communities – but its approach is counterproductive. The problems are real, but implementing a water tax as the funding source is wrong. In fact, Senate Bill 623 calls this tax, a fee. Its goal is to improve water security for disadvantaged communities through a “Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fee.” Make no mistake: This is a tax, and taxing Californians for something as essential as water does not make sense. It will increase the cost of water, making it less affordable. It also will place undo upward pressure on food prices. Call it a lose-lose for low-income residents – and everyone else. That’s not the only problem with this bill: Imposing a statewide tax on water would force local water agencies to collect taxes for Sacramento. If past habits are the precedent, state government won’t pay for this service, yet most local agencies are already stretched thin. So in the end, ratepayers face the double-whammy of pay-

ing higher taxes and paying water agencies to collect and distribute those funds. Clearly, the adage about the camel’s nose getting under the tent applies here. California is rife with programs in search of funding – low-income water rate assistance, forestry health and watershed protection, to name a few. Advocates and agencies already are eyeing revenues from a potential water tax, so what begins as a modest increase for ratepayers could grow rapidly as more and more projects force their way into the “tent.” A better approach is to use money from existing sources such as the state general fund, federal safe drinking water funds, the newly authorized state capand-trade program, and general obligation bond funds. That would match the way the state pays for other programs and initiatives identified as statewide priorities, without taxing the very products and services that we all agree should be affordable Mark Muir is board chair of the San Diego County Water Authority.

North County attorney plans to use pageant title for charitable efforts By Bianca Kaplanek

CARMEL VALLEY — When a pageant director suggested Carolyn Kirner compete for Mrs. California, the Carmel Valley resident was intrigued. However, there was one small problem. “I wasn’t married at the time,” she said. “But I told my boyfriend if we ever got married it would be something I’d be interested in pursuing.” A lot has changed since then. Kirner and Chuck Schmidt exchanged wedding vows in 2015 and this past October she took the first step on that journey when she was crowned Mrs. San Diego 2017. Although she didn’t win the Mrs. California-America Pageant in June, she became the first San Diegan to be named Mrs. California Outstanding Married Woman, an award given to a woman who has shown exceptional courage in her life, been exemplary in her community service efforts or portrayed a special attitude that sets her apart from others. “I feel very, very honored,” Kirner-Schmidt said. “I’m amazed that they picked me. I want to make the most out of having this title.” To that end she will continue making appearances throughout the county to promote Victoria’s Voice Foundation to help reduce overdose deaths, something she encountered during her time as a paramedic. “You basically had to scoop them up and head to the hospital and pray you got there before they died,” she said. “As a paramedic I remember how frustrating that was. Victoria’s

Voice is raising money so all first responders can have (the drug) that can reverse the overdose. “I adopted that as my platform because it touches my heart,” Kirner-Schmidt added. “I saw it in my early career and I’ve had young people in my children’s lives overdose. It’s preventable. You can get somebody

on the verge of death and give them this drug and save them.” Kirner-Schmidt is also committed to “helping one woman at a time” as an attorney, a second career she initially doubted was attainable. She gave up her paramedic job when she married her first husband and became a stay-athome mom. Eleven years and three children later, she said, her spouse decided he didn’t want to be married anymore. She said she had once thought of becoming a lawyer but didn’t believe she was smart enough. As a single mom, she also didn’t think she had the time or money. Additionally, she was three courses short of an undergraduate degree. With support from family and friends and a scholarship to attend Trinity Law School in Santa Ana, Kirner-Schmidt decided to go for it. She made the 80-plus mile commute to college from Carmel Valley, sometimes taking her kids with her. The first year she took classes concurrently at San Diego State University to earn her bachelor’s degree. “I studied in the bleachers of my son’s baseball games and on the grass at soccer games,” she said. “So now, when my clients say they can’t do something, I tell them they can. “As a divorce attorney, first I try to save marriages,” she added. “But if that doesn’t work I encourage them to follow their dreams.” Occasionally, KirnerSchmidt puts her money where her mouth is. “I’ve told a few women,


‘Don’t pay me now. Pay me later,’” she said. “I don’t do it for everybody. I obviously have a business to run. But when I see people who have potential I want to help them succeed. And every single woman I put myself on a limb for has paid me back and succeeded.” Kirner-Schmidt competed in beauty pageants when she was younger but never thought of pursing it further than that. In 2005, while attending a Mrs. America event to support a friend who had been named Mrs. New York, a director suggested she try for the Mrs. California title. The first step, after her wedding, was at the local level. She was crowned Mrs. San Diego in June 2016 and visited nearly every community to raise awareness and funds for her charity and others. She judged a chili contest, greeted participants at the Red Nose Run and presented flowers and a trophy to the owner of the winning horse at the Del Mar Racetrack. One of her most memorable events was Sip and Wrap, a fundraiser for Connor’s Cause for Children that helps the families of critically ill or injured children. “My parents didn’t have that. I wish they had,” said Kirner-Schmidt, who lost a brother to leukemia when he was 3. “I am so amazed by that organization. I feel really blessed to help that cause.” She and her daughter recently collected diapers, clothes, bottles, blankets, wipes and toys for “the tiniest Hurricane Har-

Countdown to


vey victims” in Texas, where her granddaughter was born. “Seeing tiny little babies struggling with the flood waters has really touched my heart,” she said. As Mrs. California Outstanding Married Woman, KirnerSchmidt can compete for the title of Mrs. California-America again in 2018. The pageant includes a swimsuit competition, during which participants must create a mask that represents them and explain why to the judges. The women are also scored on their evening gown choice and answers during an interview session. But Kirner-Schmidt said it is not simply a beauty contest. “You think that beauty pageants are just a bunch of pretty, self-centered women,” she said. The ladies she competed with the first time are “14 of the nicest, most well-rounded women I’ve ever met.” “Any one of them could have won and I would have cried tears of joy,” she said. “They were amazing. They uplift other women to do community service. They all have platforms they raise money for. So it’s more than just a beauty pageant. It’s getting your message out there.” So for the next 10 months or so, Kirner-Schmidt will make appearances throughout the county, wearing her crown — a replica of one worn by Princess Diana — and promoting her charity. Should she win Mrs. California-America, she would go on to represent the state at the Mrs. America pageant. The winner of that will compete for Mrs. World.

Cannabis supporters seek ballot measure By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — A pro-cannabis group in San Diego has targeted Encinitas, among several other county cities, as ground zero for the battle to legalize the retail sale, wholesale distribution, manufacturing and cultivation of the plant. The Association of Cannabis Professionals on Aug. 22 filed a notice of intent to circulate a petition in Encinitas to collect signatures for a proposed initiative that would authorize the aforementioned activities. Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, Chula Vista and Santee have also been hit with the same initiative. The group has until Feb. 20, 2018, to collect signatures of 10 percent of the city’s 41,000 registered voters to put the item on the next regular election ballot, or 15 percent of the electorate to force a special election. The Coast News reached out to the group’s executive director, Dallin Young, for comment, and will update the story once it is received. The proposed initiative would allow for the following: • One cannabis retailer per 15,000 residents permitted, with the council authorized to allow more. • A separation of 1,000 feet from sensitive uses such as daycare centers, schools or playgrounds required. • Operating hours from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, and a security guard on the premises. • Commercial growing of marijuana could take place only on agriculturally zoned properties, inside a greenhouse or building, with no visibility from the street, no public access and no on-premises sales. • Manufacturing and distributing marijuana products would be allowed in business park or light industrial zones. This is the latest salvo in the battle over the future of cannabis in Encinitas, which has pitted advocates on both sides of the issue since early this year, when the City Council formed a subcommittee to consider crafting regulations for commercial cannabis cultivation and deliveries on a limited basis. Cannabis sales, cultivation and distribution have been controversial subjects that cities have grappled with in the wake of Proposition 64, which legalized recreational cannabis use. Its passage created a complex system of regulations on top of the state’s existing regulations

on medicinal cannabis. But the rules left issues such as growing the plant for cities to decide. Encinitas voters supported Proposition 64 by a 64-36 margin, the largest margin in the county. But voters in 2014 voted against medical cannabis storefronts. Encinitas officials chose to consider cultivation and delivery because they were likely the areas some of the public would support. The subcommittee could return later this year or early next year with an ordinance that would regulate both activities. At least one of the biggest supporters of cannabis cultivation expressed concern that the initiative would detract from the subcommittee’s efforts. Bob Echter is the owner of Dramm and Echter, one of the last remaining local flower growers. He has been at the forefront of the pro-cultivation movement, which he said would allow for agricultural outfits in Encinitas to remain viable. But Echter said he doesn’t think the public will be as supportive of the all-inclusive initiative as they would a city-adopted ordinance dealing solely with cultivation. “The city and the subcommittee have been working hard to go through a thoughtful process, and I think this has taken a little bit away from that process,� Echter said of the initiative. “I am concerned that it is a broader measure, and will have less chance of success than a cultivation ordinance would because it may go counter to the desire of most citizens. “My hope is the council will see through their process from the subcommittee level to the City Council,� Echter said. Meanwhile, anti-drug advocates have attended the past three City Council meetings since the council returned from recess, urging the city to abort its pursuit of the cultivation ordinance and prohibit all marijuana related activities. The speakers have dominated the most recent oral communications, which is the time designated for the public to speak to the council on items that are not on the agenda. “This is an emerging issue in Encinitas that I expect will reach a feverish pitch,� Mayor Catherine Blakespear said in a recent newsletter. “I believe we’re seeing the beginning of a tsunami of strong opinion in this culture war.�

Wood-fired goodness at The Bellows


met Ivan Derezin several years ago when I wrote about his first restaurant Churchill’s and had him on the show back in the KPRI days. I remembered him being one of those guests who made me wish the show had a much longer format as our conversation flowed from food to music to beer and whiskey to current events in a manner that was easy and always interesting. In short, Ivan is a smart guy with a lot of great stories, and that’s exactly the kind of guests I like to bring on the show. Ivan is a San Diego native and had a life in finance prior to becoming a restaurateur. As an economics major at UCLA he followed in the footsteps of his dad and became a CPA after graduation then moved back down to the San Diego area. Churchill’s began with a group of investors then eventually ended up with Ivan as the sole owner. It was a success off the bat and enabled his second project, The Bellows to come to fruition. While Churchill’s is in the more established part of San Marcos right on the main drag, The Bellows is in the area adjacent to Cal State San Marcos where neighborhoods are sprouting up around it. There was definitely a need for a restaurant of the non-chain variety in this area and the econ major in Ivan noticed that early on. I should note that it has been open for three years now and since then has established quite a following in North County. And for those of you who are not familiar with the term “Bellowsâ€? which included me, it’s the squeezable air device used to stoke fires. And that is very applicable here given the wood-fired oven that is used to cook a good portion of the menu. The wood-fired oven provides an amazing aroma upon entering The Bellows,

enhancing my appetite in a manner that only burning wood can do. The interior has a gastro pub feel with a huge dose of originality and quirkiness. It’s a great looking space with a substantial bar area, booths, tables and plenty of outdoor seating. While The Bellows has more of an emphasis on wine, with an amazing list by the glass or bottle, it would not be Ivan’s place without a healthy craft beer and cocktail selection. The menu is right up my alley with a great selection of cheese, house-made and artisan-cured charcuterie and, get this, a ham tasting! I can’t say that I’ve seen a ham tasting like this in North County with Spain, Italy and Iowa represented. It’s a really nice touch and something to experience for sure. I could have spent the entire evening on the starter plate section of the menu but ended up splitting the meatballs and game hen. The Wood-Fired Meatballs with dry aged beef, lamb, pork and a pomodoro sauce with Parmesan and herbs were just like they sound, freaking amazing. I’m a huge fan of small game birds to start meals and their Crispy Game Hen with Ginger-Soy & Herbs

was a perfect representation of the category. Grilled Broccolini was also a flavorful and healthy treat. Flatbreads are represented nicely and the wood fire makes all the difference here. The Grilled Chicken & Artichoke Hearts with goat cheese, red onion, herb pesto and Parmesan was loaded with toppings. It was a difficult choice as there are half a dozen flatbreads and they all look enticing. We did not make it to the salad section but the Salad Lyonnaise with Frisee, fried egg, Niman Ranch bacon croutons and Dijon vinaigrette, is on my short list for lunch soon. EntrĂŠes also proved to be a difficult choice given the selections ranging from House-Made Sausages with Roasted Apples to WoodFired Short Rib Pot Roast to the 35 Day Dry-Aged Niman Ranch NY Steak Tuscan Style to the vegetarian selection of Cauliflower “Steakâ€? with Saffron Butter Sauce. I went with my standby of a Niman Ranch Flat Iron Steak Frites and my guest had the Wood Oven-Roasted Prawns with Polenta and Brussels leaves. The steak was tender and cooked to perfection and the prawns were giant and delicious.Â

For dessert we actually did it French style and had some nice cheese to wrap up our evening. I will make note again of the extensive wine list that Ivan describes as “offering a sense of discovery while exploring new, unique and interesting value-oriented wines from specialty producers which pair superbly with our cuisine.â€? Our server was well-versed on the offerings and his suggestions were spot on. Prices range from $10 for the starters to $45 for the 35 Day Dry-Aged NY Steak with most entrees in the mid $20 range. For the quality of preparation and locally sourced ingredients, it’s a solid value. The Bellows is located at 803 S Twin Oaks Valley Rd #107, San Marcos. Visit www.bellowswoodfire. com or call (760) 290-3912.

Weed abatement notices prove effective By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — In an effort to reduce fire risk, property inspections were conducted in Vista resulting in the Fire Protection District mailing out a total of 708 weed abatement notices. During the Aug. 9, Fire Inspector Mike McFadden indicated a 96 percent compliance rate. “We continue to work with other property owners to achieve 100 percent compliance,” McFadden said. McFadden said initial noncompliance for the first inspection triggered a certified letter to residents. Following a month from the time of that mailing, if a re-inspection showed a continued violation, then a “notice” was posted on the property. “Within about 10 days of that ‘notice,’ if no action had been taken by the property owner to comply with minimum fire safe standards, then the Fire Marshal has the authority to approve the forced abatement process,” McFadden said. McFadden reported a recent high number of face-to-face encounters with homeowners. People retreated with the warmer weather, which offered an opportunity for more fire wise education. McFadden shared that fires within the state of California have made residents more aware and proactive on the issue. “We handed out a lot of wildfire guides, did six individual fire code assessments at homes and I’ve got more lined up,” McFadden

said. “Education is such a big part of what we do.” Also discussed were six emergency access roads in Vista. McFadden pointed out that the district contractor is Aztec Landscaping, and the district hired them to clear those emergency access roads this season. The roads are to be used in situations of emergency only, and when directed and escorted by authorized personnel. According to McFadden, the city of Vista recently encountered a grass fire of several acres which extended to a small old barn. The suspected cause was children playing with fireworks. “It (the fire) was near trees and on a slope, with wind driving the fire spread,” McFadden said. “The fire crews were able to contain it without damaging any residential structures, and there were no injuries. “This was not luck,” he added. “The property owners in the area had taken steps ahead of time to clear their property of tall grasses and also assured low hanging branches from palm trees were pruned.” McFadden shared that the primary reason for containment was due to weed abatement efforts by residents taken beforehand. “We can’t emphasize this enough,” he said. “By taking steps to assure defensible space, you and your belongings have a better chance to survive a wildfire event.”

AFFORDABLE PET CARE San Diego Affordable Spay and Neuter Clinic, 855 E. Valley Parkway, Escondido, offers low-cost medicine for pets and are a discounted spay and neuter clinic. “Everyone has pets or knows someone who does and we want to share the information around the county. Veterinary medicine is expensive,” said Shawna Hart of SDASNC. “So with your help, we can help the community in lowering the pet population, help with the financial burden of veterinary bills, and to also insure the health and longevity of your furry family member.” For more information, email or or visit Courtesy photo

“I heard a lot of the concerns,” she said, adding that one item expressed was the lack of community outreach. “I have to say I agree with some of the concerns about having a soccer arena field there,” Rigby said. A nearby resident of Bub Williamson Park, David Smelser shared his concerns. He opposed an arena soccer stadium at this proposed location. “Building the arena converts about half of the usable green space in the park to artificial turf,” Smelser said. “It converts this area from multi-use to single use. I ask the city of Vista to stop any further planning, including any bids until community-designed workshops have been conducted.” Matt Hall, the director of coaching for the Vista Storm Soccer Club attended the meeting and spoke about the positive impact a soccer field could have for the youth in Vista. “I was very fortunate that my talents and ability got me to a scholarship in college — over half of my college education was paid for through soccer, and I have a college degree because of that process,” he said. “Playing the game in Vista has made me what I am today. So, I would like to talk about the opportunity that this park would provide.” In Rigby’s opinion, a soccer arena would not be suitable for Bub Williamson Park. Deputy Mayor John Franklin agreed with Rigby. He also pointed out Carlsbad is a city of 39 square miles, Oceanside is a city of 42 square miles, Escondido is a city of 38 square miles and San Marcos is a city of 24 square miles. On the other hand, the city of Vista is 18.68 square miles. “It should not be a mystery to us or confound us

why we are in this unfortunate position. We are landlocked, and we don’t have a lot of additional park land,” he said. “I’d really like to ask the council to direct the staff tonight to report back to us on the possibilities of new land that we might be able to acquire to create a totally new park for this (soccer arena) purpose.” Franklin went on to say that neighborhood parks be-

long to everyone in the city. However, smaller parks are more of an amenity, he said. “I think we really need to give some credence to that idea because, you know, in the future this could be the park down the street from my house or yours and I would be just as upset about it,” he said. Rigby made a motion to continue with plans to rehab the Bub Williamson Park,

hold community workshops, discuss new park designs and ask staff to come back with possible locations for a soccer arena. As for the RFP, it was suggested to suspend that until a new park redesign was agreed on. “Nobody here doesn’t want soccer. We do want soccer, but we want to find the right place in the city that will benefit the whole city,” Rigby said.

Local filmmaker makes his big-screen debut By Christina Macone-Greene

was filmed in 14 days on location in Los Angeles. “I wanted to write about what my day-to-day life was like,” Moran said. “During that summer, it was about spending a lot of time with my high school friends and the guys that I grew up with.” And that’s how it all started. The screening had a mixed demographic, attendees ranged in age from 20s through 50s. According to Moran, everyone seemed to have the same response. “It reminded them of what it was like to be 19 years old again, and just spending time with your friends,” he said. “It brought back a lot of memories for them.” Moran’s father, Anthony, who is a resident of Rancho Santa Fe, shared that his son had the rare gift of knowing what he wanted to do since he was a young child. “Dylan has worked hard and will find a way to tell his stories,” he said. “I am impressed with his movie. It is really difficult to create a quality feature-length film on a micro-budget.” Moran credits the people he worked with, such as his actors and producer David Rudd, for accomplishing what they did with what

little they had. He also said that anyone who watches “Get Big “wouldn’t even know it was a micro budget film — it looks that great. “We didn’t have much to work with, but I think we made the most out of what we had,” Moran said. “I really do.” “Get Big” is the story of best friends Alec and Nate, played by Tanner Stine and Moran respectively. “The movie is about them reconnecting after they haven’t seen each other for a long time because the main character, Nate, went off to college,” Moran said. “It’s about them reconnecting on this one day, and going to the wedding of an estranged friend of theirs that they went to high school with.” While “Get Big” is a comedy at heart, it’s also peppered with some dramatic moments. “The movie is a chance for people to see something that’s really fresh,” said Moran, adding that the actors are very talented. “I think that a lot of them are going to be pretty famous one day.” For more information on which AMC Independent theatres in Southern California will be releasing “Get Big” in September, vis- Dylan Anthony Moran, 24, who was raised in Escondido and went to film school at USC, readies for his writing, acting and directing debut of “Get Big.” Courtesy photo it

RANCHO SANTA FE — A new coming-of-age comedy by a local filmmaker debuted at select AMC Independent theaters starting Sept. 1. USC Film alum Dylan Anthony Moran wrote, directed and is one of the featured actors in “Get Big.” Raised in Escondido, Moran, 24, now splits his time living in both Los Angeles and with his family in Rancho Santa Fe. Moran admits while in college, he set his sights on graduating and making a movie right away. “I was desperately trying to get a screenplay finished while I was in college,” he said, adding that it didn’t feel authentic. His initial direction of a film with action-packed car chases took a different turn. “It just didn’t feel real,” he said. “I remember going home one summer from college, and I was watching the movie ‘Clerks,’ and it’s just a really simple movie about a day in this guy’s life working in a convenience store. It was really entertaining.” Then it clicked. Moran had the realization that his first movie should be simpler and more in line with his budget. “Get Big” cost $250,000 to produce and

Major changes to Reverse Mortgage program take effect on October 2 The Trump Administration announced important changes to the reverse mortgage program. These changes take effect on October 2, 2017. Approval amounts will drop by an estimated 20%. For example, the current reverse mortgage approval amount for a 65 year old borrower with a $500,000 home is $271,000. In October, the approval drops by $56,000 (20.7%) to $215,000. The upfront fee charged by FHA, which has been criticized as being too high in the past, will actually increase for most borrowers under the new guidelines. The last change affects the popular growth rate in the reverse mortgage line of credit, which will drop by 0.75% per year. The FHA insurance

Odd Files By Chuck Shepherd ECLIPSING WEIRD A California man with European heritage "strong and pure" placed an ad on Craigslist in advance of the solar eclipse on Aug. 21, seeking a "worthy female" to have sex with him in Oregon and "conceive a child that will be on the next level of human evolution." "Everything will be aligned in the local universe. Both of our cosmic orgasmic energy will be aligned with the planets," the ad posited. He had only one specific caveat: "You must like cats." The ad has since been deleted. [Men's Health, 8/11/2017] RISE OF THE MACHINES When Louise Kenne-

NEW WORLD ORDER In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec, near Plattsburgh, New York, the Canadian military is building a refugee camp to house asylum-seekers coming from the United States, where recent migrants fear the current administration's immigration crackdown. Montreal has already turned its Olympic Stadium into a shelter for refugees. The new camp would house 500 people in heated tents while they wait for refugee applications to be processed. More than 3,300 people crossed into Quebec from the U.S. between January and June 2017. [BBC, 8/9/2017]

Standards of Cover still in review process

September is Rail Safety Month

By Christina Macone-Greene

OCEANSIDE — The North County Transit District board of directors adopted a proclamation at its July Board Meeting recognizing September 2017 as “State of California Rail Safety Month.” In an effort to reduce tragedies, state legislators passed a bill in 2009 that designated September as “Rail Safety Month.” Each year, passenger and freight rail operations team up to remind pedestrians and motorists to exercise caution when near tracks, and to always “See

VISTA — The most recent Standards of Cover were presented by fire Chief Ned Vander Pol at the Vista Fire Protection District’s Aug. 9 meeting. The comprehensive report helps develop a community risk reduction plan. Vander Pol told the Vista Fire Protection District’s board of directors that the meeting’s SOC discussion item would be an overview as they had seen a PowerPoint presentation a couple of times already. Vander Pol said that the first SOC was put into place in 2008. “The goal is just to have a document there that dictates and identifies, starting at the beginning of what our risks and hazards are and then making sure that we are applying resources to mitigate those hazards,” he said. “We’re living in the city, and we know what our hazards and risks are, so we don’t buy 17 fire boats — we actually are applying resources appropriately to the risks that we have at hand.” Vander Pol said the tangible benefits of the document are clear. For example, the Vista Fire Department ended up with Station 5 on South Melrose because a need was identified. The SOC also helped with the restoration of a fourth Advanced Life Support ambulance. Vander Pol explained that the most recent SOC was created in conjunction with the accreditation the fire department had undergone. “We’ll be doing another one of these in a couple of years as we get ready to do another accreditation,” he said. “They go hand in hand — you can’t have the accreditation without the Standards of Cover." He did point out that they did complete a Standards of Cover before without the accreditation, but that was for the sole purpose of getting a baseline of information as a starting point. Vander Pol wanted everyone to know that from a practical standpoint, the SOC is a document that can be looked at historically to make sure the fire department is tracking in the right direction. And if for some reason this is not the case, they can identify the issue and offer solutions to mitigate the situation, such as adding resources. Vander Pol used the fourth ALS ambulance as an example, explaining that those tracking results will be revealed over time. According to Vander Pol, the SOC offers a good strategic plan for the organization. “You get a good idea of where this organization has been and then where we hope to go in the future,” he said. “The critical task analysis is a big part of what we look at.” The SOC also has baseline and benchmarks for the tasks the fire department takes on such as

Tracks, Think Train.” According to statistics kept by the Federal Railroad Administration and Operation Lifesaver, Incorporated, the state of California has been identified as having the highest number of preventable railroad trespasser fatalities of all states in the nation. There were 358 tragic rail incidents recorded statewide in 2016. From these rail incidents, there were 101 trespasser fatalities and 52 highway rail crossing fatalities.

EMS, fire and hazardous materials. Additionally, Vander Pol explained that there is a correlation between the city of Vista and the Vista Fire Protection District. “The district and the city have to approve this document,” he said, noting that there has to be parity between any changes that occur in the city or the district. “So, if response times are going up in the district, they can’t be disproportionate to what’s happening in the city.” The SOC contains the breakdown of the data between the city and district, Vander Pol said. Vista Fire Protection District Director Robert Fougner commended the

team who put the SOC together because of the enormous wealth of information. He then asked about the rural area response time. The neighborhoods in Vista are divided by urban, suburban and rural. In Fougner’s opinion, the rural response times had gone up and he wanted to know more about that. Vander Pol explained that there had not been a divergence in service or even the response time. “The reason is that those boundaries changed, so that sample size for the rural has gone down tremendously, so the suburban has picked up more of those rural calls,” Vander Pol said. “So now the calls that we’re getting in the

“A Family Tradition”

rural area are the really far away ones.” Vander Pol said that he would be sure to present more data to clarify this. The district board told Vander Pol that would be helpful and members said they were looking forward to this supporting documentation at the next meeting.

The Vikings are coming! By Christina Macone-Greene

12-year-old boy advances in ‘America’s Got Talent’ By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Encinitas boy Merrick Hanna continues to defy the odds, as the 12-year-old robotic dancer has advanced to the penultimate stage of “America’s Got Talent.” Merrick survived the first round of cuts on the series’ “live shows,” the elimination rounds that are performed in front of a live audience at the Pasadena Civic Theater. His signature “robot storytelling” has captivated audiences, and on Aug. 22, his dance to an adaptation of Ruth B’s “Lost Boys” garnered him a standing ovation from several of the judges, and high praise from judge Simon Cowell. “For me, so far, this

is the best act we’ve seen tonight,” Cowell said after Merrick completed his performance. But despite the praise from the judges, Merrick’s fate was in the hands of viewers across the world, who could cast votes online or by telephone. Merrick found himself on stage with two other acts, 9-year-old singer Celine Tam and pop performance duo Mirror Image. Ultimately, he and Celine emerged as two of the five semifinalists named during the show. Hanna had the week off this week, and will compete in September for the title of “America’s Got Talent” Season 12 winner.

VISTA — Faithful event-goers to The Vista Viking Festival are celebrating a special milestone this year. The annual festival is marking its 15th anniversary. Event planners claim that participants and spectators will be in for a special treat on Sept. 23 and Sept. 24. Hosts of the festival — the Norwegian Fish Club Odin and Sons of Norway — are pulling out all the stops with action-packed Old World Scandinavian entertainment such as flaming ax-throwing, fish flinging, a Viking log toss, live combat, Scandinavian food and music, and more. The Vista Viking Festival, one of the largest fundraisers for the organization, is held at Norway Hall on land purchased by Sons of Norway Lodge in the 1950s. “We, unlike most lodges, have our own land, which gives us the opportunity to do this festival,” James Nelson-Lucas, director of public narrative, said. “Earlier on, our festival was just a summer/fall festival for mostly lodge members. But in 1992, we added another group to our organization called the Norwegian Fish Club Odin, which is largely for people who are interested in old Norse heritage. “We have a Viking group, and so they started coming to the summer festivals, and it just got bigger and bigger, and eventually it became a full-fledged festival.” According to Nelson-Lucas, the festival raises money for the Norway Hall Foundation, which owns and manages the property. Proceeds will go to support improvements to the Viking Village infrastructure. Nelson-Lucas shared that the Sons of Norway and the Norwegian

Fish Club Odin are chartered members of the hall and use the facilities. The hall, lodge and lands were purchased to promote and share the Scandinavian and Norwegian heritage and culture. Year-round, the Viking Village offers visitors a yesteryear Norwegian experience while hosting other cultural activities. Destinations such as the blacksmith shop, outdoor oven-baking and weapons range for shooting arrows are there all the time; and, many of the frames for the Village houses also remain throughout the year. However, once a year during the Vista Viking Festival weekend, merchants, entertainers and the public are invited for a memorable experience. Last year, the weekend drew a crowd of 6,000. Those same numbers are expected this year, and possibly more. The marketplace will offer pur-

chases ranging from jewelry and handmade items to swords. “There will be two stages of entertainment which will be largely Celtic folk-rock groups like Highland Way, and we have a pirate band called Dread Crew of Oddwood,” he said. According to Nelson-Lucas, it takes roughly 600 individuals, all volunteers, to launch the entire event with four chairs and eight general committee members. “There’s a whole lot of people involved,” he said. “We have not only the Sons of Norway and the Daughters of Norway, but the Norwegian Fish Club Odin. A good number of our members are members of larger organizations and re-enactment groups, so even though those people might not show up to our meetings, they do come and help out at the property and help put on the event.” For more event details, visit

Councilwoman reports on new state voting laws By Christina Macone-Greene

Jose Trimino, 80, of Arizona, is a regular at the iFLY facility in his home state. He said his first experience flying was initially a little shaky, but “once you got in everything was cool.” Trimino added that indoor skydiving is a sport where age does not matter. He said his experience that day was wonderful. “I'd do it again, and again, and again,” Trimino said. Chris Leavitt, also from Arizona, tried indoor skydiving with his wife and two

small children. “It's like flying,” Leavitt said. “It's a really cool feeling.” His 3-year-old son, Canaan, seemed equally impressed. The grand opening celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony, food trucks, a deejay and a firsttime flyer discount. “There's a lot happening,” Loiacono said. The 5,000-square-foot facility was custom-built within a year. Giant propellers push air through the center of the flight chamber and keep people afloat. It is one of a couple

dozen iFLY facilities in the world. IFLY Oceanside is geared toward family fun, student field trips and corporate team building. Owner Rob Blomsness said he is also expecting high participation from area skydivers and military. Blomsness added he is pleased with the opening day turnout and the city’s warm reception. “I'm over the top excited,” Blomsness said. “There is a lot of community interest.” Visit Oceanside and Oceanside Chamber of Commerce have voiced strong

support for the facility. Visit Oceanside president and CEO Leslee Gaul said it is exactly what the city needs to fit its sports tourism market. The business is expected to generate $5 million annually. “It's a great addition to Oceanside,” Councilman Jerry Kern said. iFLY Indoor Skydiving is located at 3178 Vista Way, just off state Route 78.

VISTA — A councilwoman’s report regarding new statewide voting laws took center stage at the Aug. 8 meeting of the Vista City Council. While other members concluded the meeting with various remarks, Councilwoman Amanda Rigby reported the details of a summer workshop she attended in Monterey. She was the cities’ appointed representative. Secretary of State Alex Padilla spoke at the 2017 League of California Cities Mayors and Council Members Executive Forum in Monterey from June 27 to 28. “He came to talk to us about some of the new laws that are going to be taking effect regarding voting in California starting in 2018,” Rigby said. “One of the things that they’re doing is people can register to vote at the age of 16.” Lowering the voting age to 16 would represent a significant change for the state of California. Eighteen is the current registration age.

Rigby was quick to point out that this would simply make pre-registration possible at 16. The official voting age will remain age 18. “When we have a voting day, an election day, there is going to be 11 days of voting in California, and the last day would be the 11th day,” she said. Weekend voting might also be in the works. As it stands now, voters from all cities in the region and unincorporated areas are assigned precincts by the Registrar of Voters at the county of San Diego. A registered voter may only vote at their assigned precinct. But Padilla told the attendees of the workshop that voters will be permitted to vote at any precinct, Rigby said. “People could vote anywhere,” she said. “And not just in their precinct.” “So, there are a lot of different things coming down with the new election laws,” Rigby said, noting how significant these changes will be.

Revamped St. Mark Golf Club in San Marcos is on the mark sports talk

jay paris


t wasn’t quite a skins game but someone dropped $5 million recently at the St. Mark Golf Club. “We wanted the golfers to score well and have more fun,” Brett Miller said. “So we made the course even better.” Better is good and Miller’s time of overseeing the resurrection of this San Marcos course at the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort is paying off. “The course was in great shape, with the right balance of challenge and playability,” said Carlsbad’s Darrell Atkin. Atkin is right. The St. Mark is on the mark and it’s clear to see there’s been a switch at the 18-hole track. Miller, a good golfer himself, knows how to keep score. He could decipher the trend of the declining number of golfers teeing it up. “We understand that,” said Miller, an Olivenhain

So what we are trying to create is when that golfer wakes up in the morning, he thinks, ‘Where do I want to go play?’” Miller and his company, Eat.Drink.Sleep, aren’t snoozing on jazzing up the St. Mark. That $5 million investment went toward everything from an expanded pro shop to new golf carts. Zooming around the course, it’s easy to understand why St. Mark is bucking. Its greens will absorb 40,000 rounds this year. When Miller’s bunch took over five years ago, it was 24,000. “There’s been a tre-

mendous increase,” he said. It’s because of the elbow grease applied to the old San Marcos Country Club, which had fallen well below par. “It was in pretty bad shape,” Miller said. If your game is off-kilter, Lee Sanudo can assist. A golf guru for more than 27 years, he was hired as the director of instruction. The expansion of the teaching program is part of Miller’s to-do list and that includes an upgraded locker room and improved golf cart pathways. “Many people have worked extremely hard to make the St. Mark Golf Club a truly outstanding golf fa-

Thomas J. “Tom” Fay 1953 - 2017

Thomas J. “Tom” Fay, a naturopathic doctor who dedicated the last two decades of his life to helping thousands of patients in North County, died on Aug. 17 of natural causes. He was 64. Dr. Fay ran the Choosing Nature clinic in San Marcos and Encinitas since the late 1990s, teaching clients a holistic approach to health as well as ssisting patients with acute and chronic conditions. A generous and gregarious man, Dr. Fay helped many at a discount when their insurance plans did not cover naturopathic medicine. It was a field he came to later in life. When Tom Fay’s wife was diagnosed and later died of breast cancer, he wanted to know why, said his daughter Lisa Fay Gatton. His questions led him to take up the study of holistic approach to health and he ultimately become an expert in naturopathic medicine. A retired Marine, Dr. Fay considered himself an American patriot, a political libertarian, business entrepreneur and magnanimous civic participant. As such, he was active with local civic interests and raised donations annually for the Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots holiday program. Thomas J. Fay was born in Norwalk, Conn., in 1953, the son of the late James P. Fay Sr. and Doris C. (Ireland) Fay, and was one of six children. He graduated from Norwalk High School in 1972 and, at the height of the Vietnam War, decided to sign up for military service with a friend. The friend, John Campbell, said they wanted to enlist rather than be drafted. “We knew we wanted to go in the service but we didn’t know which one,” Mr. Campbell said. Mr. Campbell wanted to join the Air Force, but Dr. Fay favored the Marines after making friends while playing cards with a recruiter at the recruit depot. They both signed up for the Marines. The men did basic training at Camp Pendleton and Dr. Fay became staff sergeant and served in Okinawa, Japan, during the war. In 1976, he married Chizuko Higa, whom he had met in Okinawa. They had a daughter, Michelle (Fay) Burrill, who survives

cility,” said Frank Iannuzzi, the club’s general manager. “We are so pleased with the response from our members and guests about the club’s renovations.’ There’s activity on-andoff the 6,400-yard, par-71 course. On Saturdays there’s a driving clinic at the range. Then there’s the Oktoberfest Golf Tournament and Party is Sept. 29. Still thirsty for more golf and suds?

him. The marriage ended in divorce. He returned to Camp Pendleton and, while serving there, he was injured as a passenger in a serious motor vehicle accident. He received a medical retirement from the Marines in 1978, Mr. Campbell said. He returned to Connecticut and established Ultimate Carpet and Interior Design in Ridgefield, one of many businesses he founded. In 1980, Dr. Fay married Judy Madeira Fay, then a nursing student. The Fays had two children, Ms. Gatton and Anthony Fay of San Diego. He sold his business and moved to Kingman, Ariz., with Judy Fay, who had become a registered nurse. In Kingman, Dr. Fay worked for the city’s performing arts center, where he planned, managed and scheduled live events. Many performers, from concert pianists to mimes would bunk in his home, Ms. Gatton said. After Judy Fay was diagnosed with breast cancer, the family moved to Portland, Oregon, where Dr. Fay earned a bachelor’s degree at George Fox University in Newberg in 1994. Mrs. Fay’s illness and eventual death in 1995 prompted Fay’s interest in natural medicine. Then a single father, he moved his family to Phoenix, where he studied for four years and earned a doctorate in 1998 at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. After graduation, he went to work for Pleomorphic Products Sales Inc., where he wrote a medical journal about the firm’s supplements products. He returned to California and in 1997 and founded the Leucadia Naturopathic Clinic in Encinitas, which later became Choosing Nature, a naturopathic consulting practice that also sold vitamins and supplements. In 2008, Dr. Fay married Tracy Collins, who also has worked as administrative manager at Choosing Nature. He was active in the North County business community and was for a time a member of the Encinitas Lions Club. Besides his wife of nine years, Dr. Fay is survived by three sisters, two brothers, three children and five grandchildren; his daughter, Ms. Gatton, and her husband, Thomas Gatton, and their children Aiden and Harrison, of San Diego; son, Anthony Fay, of San Diego; and daughter from his first marriage, Michelle Fay Burrill, and her husband, Matt Burrill, and their sons, Devon, Alexander and Adam Burrill, of Connecticut. He also leaves behind his siblings, James Fay, Jr. and his wife Mary of Keene, N.H.; Mary-Ann Ancker and her husband Walter of Norwalk, Conn.; William Fay of Darien, Ga.; Patricia Collins and her husband Gerold of Marlow, N.H.; and Nancy Cogliandro and her husband Chris of Dublin, N.H.

great,” Atkin said. That assessment brought a smile to Miller. “We want it to be fun out there,” Miller said. “We want people to play their golf, and if they want, hang around afterward and enjoy some craft beers. That makes for more fun.” Maybe the laughs will match the number of strokes a golfer requires during St. Mark round and what’s the harm in that? We couldn’t think of any, either. “It was a nice course,” Carlsbad’s Rod Laver said. “They have really done a lot of work out here.” Laver, a tennis legend, was making the turn recent-

ly at St. Mark. A front 9 had gone haywire, so he stopped at The Grill and did his best Joey Chestnut imitation. Laver polished off a big frankfurter and that got him right. He went under-par on the back 9, which didn’t surprise his playing partner. “His golf game is usually as crafty and accurate as his tennis game,” Cardiff’s Jim Lindsay said. “After that hot dog, his game really picked up.’ So has the scene at the St. Mark.

Deal pushes SCE to consider Oceanside mayor’s decision on alternatives for San Onofre waste returning expected in two weeks REGION – A nonprofit group calling itself Citizens' Oversight announced that it has reached an agreement with Southern California Edison that requires the utility to relocate approximately 3.6 million pounds of nuclear waste from San Onofre beach. The agreement establishes an overarching plan, including the use of experts in spent nuclear fuel transportation, nuclear engineering, spent fuel siting and licensing, and radiation detection and monitoring to advise on issues related to proposed relocation to an offsite storage facility away from the ocean ecosystem. “Leaving the spent fuel only 100 feet from the ocean with no other options being developed is simply unacceptable,” said Ray Lutz, founder of Citizens Oversight and an engineer. “Our agreement plots a prudent strategy that aims to movie the fuel off our coast more promptly and avoids the possibility that it would just be left on the beach indefinitely due to inaction. This is a practical solution that respects safety concerns.” The California Coastal Commission voted Oct. 6, 2015, to approve a permit to install and use a new “Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation” (ISFSI, also called “spent fuel dry storage”) only 100 feet from the seawall at San Onofre. After speaking in opposition at the meeting, Lutz joined with activist Patricia Borchmann and the law firm of Aguirre & Severson LLP to file a lawsuit against the Coastal Commission to revoke the permit. Southern California Edison (SCE), the majority owner

of the now-shuttered San Onofre nuclear plant, is the party of interest in the case. The lawsuit asserts that the permit was improper due to lack of public review, numerous ex parte meetings, and lack of consideration of technical issues. With only a week remaining before the court hearing scheduled April 14, the parties agreed to settlement discussions. With the ISFSI in the process of construction, a cooperative settlement process was considered the best alternative to the parties involved. However, even with this agreement, moving the nuclear waste to a better location is not a done deal. The agreement does not attempt to reach conclusions on the actual implementation plan, which is to be determined by experts in the field who will be hired by SCE. They will investigate alternative sites and develop a transportation plan and a strategic plan to move the waste using “commercially reasonable efforts.” The agreement requires public reporting at regular intervals so that Citizens Oversight can monitor the progress, inform the public, and can turn to the court if necessary to enforce the deal. SCE must also evaluate at least two options: Palo Verde nuclear plant in Arizona near Phoenix, which is partially owned by SCE, and “consolidated interim storage” (CIS) sites that have been proposed for western Texas and eastern New Mexico. But the agreement does not limit the review of considered sites to just those two.

OCEANSIDE — Mayor Jim Wood has been on medical leave from city duties for more than 90 days. Come Oct. 9 the mayor must attend a City Council meeting or his seat will be declared vacant. The first 60 days of his absence were excused by City Council without declaring his seat vacant. The subsequent 60 days, which began Aug. 9, are a legal grace period that kicked in when he did not return to office. O p t io n s for City Council if the mayor’s seat remains vacant are to appoint Jim Wood a mayor or have an election to fill the position. Until then Oceanside is served by four council members. The city has already felt the impact of a deadlock 2-2 vote. “I hope the mayor does what is best for his health and what is best for the city,” Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery said. “Council has already deadlocked on one important item; the city can’t afford to continue to deadlock on other future planning items.” A number of pressing council decisions on major items lay ahead. Lowery recommends an appointment of someone who is actively involved in the city decision-making process if the mayor does not return to his seat. “We should look for someone

who has the ability to work with the diverse and often contentious opinions on the council currently,” Lowery said. “It will do the city and the council a disservice to find someone who is unable to build consensus.” Many think it would be difficult for City Council to agree on a council member appointment to mayor. If a council member is appointed there would be a vacant council seat, which would need to be appointed or elected. “It will create the exact same scenario with an empty seat,” City Clerk Zack Beck said. “The wise thing to do is to simply appoint someone (who is not a council member) who can hit the ground running and get back to business as usual.” A person appointed or elected mayor needs a good working relationship with council members and sound understanding of city operations. They would also have to agree to an annual salary of about $20,000. If City Council opts for an election it would be held during the June 2018 primary. The estimated cost of an election is between $500,000 and $750,000. Another wrinkle is Oceanside has recently adopted district elections. The election of mayor and filling a vacant council seat remain at large. In November 2018 two council seats will be voted on by district. In November 2020 the mayor will be elected at large, and the two remaining council seats will be elected by district. Despite the challenges of

appointing a mayor and council member Lowery said it’s the best course of action considering the cost of an election. “I believe we should appoint from a citywide pool and deal with any consequences down the line when we have to consider them,” Lowery said. Lowery added he would be honored to fill the appointment of mayor if asked to do so. Wood continues to work on his recovery after suffering a stroke in May that hospitalized him for a month. He still faces challenges of speech and balance, which keeps him in a wheelchair. During his recovery Wood has kept in regular contact with the city manager and city attorney and remains updated on city operations. “His greatest desire is to come back,” Council Aide Debbie Walker-Mikulay said. “A 65 percent vote elected him as mayor. He’s a people person. People do love him.” Council members and city staff wish the mayor a full recovery. “He is a man of great character that gives his life to the city,” Beck said. “He has served the city for over 40 years. He will be dearly missed if he is unable to return.” Walker-Mikulay said Wood will make a decision on whether he will return to office within the next couple of weeks. His decision is expected prior to the Oct. 4 City Council meeting when a 60-day clock begins to appoint a mayor or call for an election.

OCEANSIDE — The Civic Center Plaza and adjacent streets will be bustling with a festive celebration of Noche Mexicana on Sept. 10. Thousands of North County residents are expected to attend. The annual grassroots event has celebrated Mexico’s independence for 13 years. The free event also kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month. Councilwoman Esther Sanchez has been part of the planning committee from the start. The city celebration showcases local talent and area Latino businesses. “The best part about Noche Mexicana is bringing the community together in celebration of a beautiful culture in dance, music, art and food,” Sanchez said. This year’s honored guests include Lalo Alcaraz, a nationally syndicated cartoonist and creator of “La Cucaracha,” and young singer Angelito Garcia, who recently competed on “La Voz Kids.” The highly acclaimed Mariachi Juvenil de San Diego and Ballet Folklorico Tapatio de Oceanside groups will also perform. Classical Mariachi, Huasteco, and Norteno music will be played throughout the afternoon and evening. Noche Mexicana will begin with a color guard presentation by Oceanside firefighters in honor of Sept. 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, followed by a moment of silence. Next will be the traditional blessing of the event area by Calpulli Omeyocan Danza Azteca. Festivities will conclude with a re-enactment of Grito de Delores, Mexico’s cry for independence, led by a representative from the Mexican Consulate. In addition to main stage performances there will be exhibitions by SoCal Pro Wrestling, a lineup of Por Siempre Car Club classic cars, children’s activities sponsored by the Oceanside Public Library and food, craft and merchandise booths.

long recognition honor the strength and accomplishments of Latino Americans. “It’s important to recognize and celebrate the many contributions the Latino community has made to Oceanside and to this country,” Sanchez said. The yearly celebration has grown in notoriety and community support. Tri-City Medical Center, Wells Fargo, MetroPCS, and Telemundo 20 and NBC 7 are this year’s title sponsors. “We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to honor the rich Latino culture which runs so deep through our community,” Richard Kelley, president and general manager of Telemundo 20 and NBC 7 television stations, said. In-kind contributions will be provided by performers, nonprofits and local businesses. “We are also very proud of our other generous sponsors, including the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce, Oceanside firefighters, MiraCosta Community College and Ocean’s Eleven,”

Sanchez said. Noche Mexicana is put on by the Oceanside Noche Mexicana Committee, a nonprofit group of Oceanside officials, residents, businesses and service organizations. The committee is dedicated to the social, educational and economic betterment of Oceanside’s Latino neighborhoods and families. Noche Mexicana takes place at the Civic Center Plaza from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 10.

SAN MARCOS — Palomar College President Joi Lin Blake issued a college-wide statement on Sept. 4, reaffirming the college’s commitment to support all students. In her e-mail message, Blake said, “The action to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would be contrary to our core values as an institution and principles of access, diversity, equity and inclusion which are central to our educational philosophy.” She further reiterated the Palomar Community College District Governing Board’s resolution that “reaffirms its commitment to undocumented students, and all students who meet the minimum requirements for admission, regardless of immigration status ….” The college has counselors on-campus to meet with students who may be affected by the White House decision. In addition, students are encouraged to refer to the Palomar College website AB 540 and Immigrant Resources for campus and community resources. Earlier this year, the

college retained immigration counsel to ensure upto-date analysis and support

regarding the implications for DACA students upon program repeal.

A McDonald's employee watched on surveillance video as Henry went to the trunk and removed a replica AR-15 airsoft rifle, then got back in the car. The workers couldn't tell that the weapon was not authentic and called 911, and Henry was charged with improper exhibition of a firearm. [WPLG, 8/16/2017]

Beloved transportation director steps down By Tyra Wu

CARLSBAD — From the moment you step into Barbara Patterson’s office at the Army and Navy Academy, it’s clear that she’s not your run-of-themill school transportation director. After all, most don’t have a personalized varsity jacket, like she does. The walls of her office are filled with photos, drawings and tokens from former students that she fondly refers to as “her boys.” Most transportation directors also don’t have a plaque from the California Highway Patrol celebrating 40 years of bus driving accident free. “Miss Bobbi,” as she’s affectionately called by the cadets and those who know her, stepped down from her role as director on Aug. 31 to a part-time posi-

Celebrating 30 Years of serving our 120,000 readers in North County Right after I started the paper in 1987, I remember driving home after I had just met with a new advertiser. I had my 3-year-old son in the back seat of the car, and I asked myself, “what makes you think you can start a paper?” Well, I did! And I haven’t looked back for over 30 years!

- Jim Kydd, Founder and Publisher

tion after 14 years of service at the Army and Navy Academy and a grand total of 40 years driving buses. As transportation director, Patterson was responsible for a plethora of tasks, including making sure all the vehicles were running properly, making doctor’s runs with cadets and transporting the cadets to sporting events. For the students, many of whom travel far from home to attend the academy, Patterson was their mom away from home. “I try to make it as family-oriented as possible in my department,” she said. On days when Patterson would drive to sporting events, she would make sure to watch the boys compete. She also volunteered to help score-keep for track and basketball. “For me, it was watching the boys grow up,” she said. “They thank me all the time for the work I’m doing.” Before coming to the Army and Navy Academy, Barbara Patterson drove buses in Orange County. During that time, she was selected as one of the bus drivers for the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, where she transported athletes. She was also driving in Los Angeles right before the 1992 riots started. When she moved to Escondido, Patterson met her husband, Kenneth, who drove buses for 35 years. While she is modest about her achievements, her husband is more than happy to brag for her. “So many people love the job she does, from the kids, the staff and the parents,” Kenneth Patterson said. While the process to become a bus driver isn’t easy — it includes 20 hours of classroom training, behind the wheel training and a driving test — and the hours often exceed 50 a week, Barbara Patterson is happy with her decision to follow this career. “I do it because I love the kids,” she said.
