The festival, first held in 1908, is set for Sept. 10. Photo by Samantha Nelson By Samantha Nelson ESCONDIDO — The city is stepping back in time and on some grapes with the return of its oldest event, Grape Day Festival, on Sept. 10. Started in 1908, Grape Day Festival celebrates Escondido’s once-domi nant agricultural industry. Thousands of visitors trav eled from all over Southern California to visit the town known for its sweet grapes and wine, making it second in popularity to Pasadena’s Festival of Roses. The festival ran un til 1950, then was revived again in 1990 and hosted until 2018 by the Escondido History Center, which is one of the main organizers of the festival’s latest revival. Working alongside the histo ry center is the Brothers of 6, a charitable organization that also works to preserve history in the community. “As an organization ded icated to preserving history and helping our community, we are excited to be partner ing up with the Escondido History Center to revive the Grape Day Festival,” said Brothers of 6 President Bill McNaughton. “We think it is important for younger gen erations to understand the historical significance of Es condido’s agricultural roots and have a bit of family fun at the same time.” This year’s festival will take visitors back in time to experience what it was like to attend during its pre1940s days, with period-ap propriate music and food production. Crafters will provide live demonstrations of spinning, weaving, corn shelling and grinding and butter churning to show how life was lived in the early 20th“Grapecentury.Day is Escondi do’s one-day history lesson as well as a fun time for the whole family,” said Robin Fox, director of the Escondi do History Center. “And it’s free.”While organizers are still securing some acts, the music will include ev erything from bluegrass to swing jazz to mariachi. Another symbolic ges ture of the past is a hot air balloon that will be around the festival just like the originalAdultdays.visitors will also get the chance to taste a va riety of beer and wine from around San Diego County in the festival’s wine and beer garden. The family-friendly event offers plenty of activ ities for kids as well, includ ing pony rides, a petting zoo, face-painting and more. Grape Day Festival wouldn’t be complete with out some grape stomping, something that the festival has always done, although this time it’ll be just for fun and not turned into wine like in the old days. The festival will also have plenty of grapes for ev eryone to eat as well. “There will be grapes everywhere,” McNaughton said.Historically, Escondido was known for growing mus cat grapes, which are larger, darker and typically sweet er than other varieties. Muscat grapes were used to make sweeter wines. As tradition goes, Grape Day Festival will take place in Grape Day Park on Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Historical Grape Day Festival returns AFTER 21 YEARS WE ARE CLOSING OUR DOORS!

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) is the nation’s largest public-em ployees pension fund. CalPERS is also the second largest purchaser of health care in the country. Only Medicare is larger. The fund manages nearly $500 billion in assets. It serves more than 2 million mem bers and Fromfamilies.late August through late September, more than 650,000 retired CalPERS members will have the vitally important chance to vote for the one seat that they can directly elect to the board. Yet, recent history shows that fewer than 20% of those eligible will vote in this election to choose a representative who will help guide a pension sys tem that generates $28 bil lion in economic activity for California — $1.41 bil lion in San Diego County alone!Without diminishing the importance of the up coming statewide elections, all CalPERS members and families must realize that the race for this board seat involves a far larger elec torate and has far more eco nomic impacts than many of the offices and ballot measures on the November ballot.It is vital that you vote for a candidate who shares your values and will fight to protect retiree interests on the Board. In recent years CalP ERS management has culti vated an atmosphere of se crecy and denial of access to information every mem ber needs and deserves. CalPERS mismanagement has lost our pension fund millions through question able real estate dealings. It spends more on outside pri vate equity managers than on its entire Additionally,staff. CalPERS has sorely mismanaged the long-term care program, leaving more than 60,000 policyholders wondering whether they will be able to afford long-term care. This is a disgrace, and it must be stopped!Itgets worse: An exBoard member was indict ed for malfeasance. A CEO was jailed for pay-to-play practices. A CIO resigned over conflicts of interest. How did CalPERS respond? It “circled the wagons,” opt ing for more secrecy and less Howtransparency.canthese practic es protect members? They cannot!Yet management has been getting bonuses for “almost” doing their job. This is ridiculous. It is the board’s job to hold its agents accountable. CalPERS retirees must elect a Board member who will fight for ALL CalPERS retirees, who will end secre cy, attack mismanagement and demand transparency. There are three can didates running for the CalPERS Board Retired Member seat: Tim Behrens, retired program director from the Department of Developmental Services; Yvonne Walker, recently re tired legal secretary from the Department of Justice; and myself, Randy Cheek, retired legislative liaison with the California State Lottery.Although I very much would appreciate your vote, more important is that you read our statements, re search our histories and, above all, VOTE FOR SOMEBODY. Randy Cheek is legisla tive director of the Retired Public Employees Associa tion and a candidate for the CalPERS Board.

By Laura Place SAN MARCOS — A San Marcos company that co-launched an app assist ing sexual assault survivors in deciding their next steps is hoping to expand the tool from where it is currently being piloted at Arizona State University to colleges and institutions in San Di ego County and beyond. Here4U, a decision aid tool for survivors, was born out of a partnership between Dr. Michelle Ville gas-Gold, ASU’s director of health and clinical research within the Office of the Vice President of Research, and Maggie Slater, owner of San Marcos-based app devel opment company Aliferous Technology.Themobile and online app, launched at ASU in the fall of 2021, walks us ers through a series of basic questions about when and where the assault occurred. The internet-based plat form also inquires about the individual's current safety level and their preferences for receiving medical care and support — or "care pathway" — and whether to report the incident to the college or law enforcement, known as the "justice path way."The original concept came from Villegas-Gold’s dissertation work between 2016 and 2018, as she sought to develop a digital decision aid for student survivors who have experienced the pervasive issue of sexual assault.Around one in four fe male undergraduate stu dents experience rape or sexual violence, accord ing to data from the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network“Part(RAINN).ofthewhole rea son I created this is there are so many decisions you have to make in such a short time frame and in a trauma tized state,” Villegas-Gold said. “It is intended to make the systems in place less complex, less confus ing, and connect people to existing resources. It helps people know about and use the resources that are there and use them in a way that is less frustrating for them and is more efficient.” While applauded by the college, her project lacked the needed funding and sup port to be put in place for student use. However, after hearing about the project online, Slater was inspired and reached out to Ville gas-Gold in 2019 to see if Aliferous Technology could help with the tech side of things from San Marcos. After consulting with survivors, students, medi cal practitioners, advocates and detectives, Here4U was officially launched online and made available to ASU students last “Michellefall.had the tool, and we came on as a tech provider, so now she and I are partners,” Slater said. “We feel blessed that we can provide the opportuni ty for the survivors to take their power back and make their own choices after such a violating situation.”

Over 700 individuals have used the tool since its launch, with some tweaks made along the way based on student feedback. After seeing how well received it was at ASU, Slater said she hopes to expand it from Ar izona to San Diego County and the state of California. Slater said she had spo ken briefly with CSU San Marcos about the possibili ty of making Here4U avail able at the university and said she was encouraged to try to bring it to all 23 CSU campuses. Aliferous is also in talks with San Diego County leaders about po tential ways to implement Here4U.

Our mission is to reach as many survivors as possi ble in an on- and off-campus space. Hopefully, with the tool growing nationwide, perhaps worldwide, we can see those stats go down,” SlaterSincesaid. Here4U is cur rently designed to provide information about justice and care pathways, specifi cally at ASU and the larger Phoenix metropolitan area, it would need to be adapt ed before being launched somewhereDependingnew.on the size of the university or city where it is being imple mented, the app could be launch-ready in around two months.“We’d have the skele ton, but we’d need to go in and plug in the specific de tails for those counties and schools. It can't copy and paste from one place to an other, but that’s why it's so needed. We do all the messy work on the back end,” said Villegas-Gold.Oneofthe tool’s prin cipal features is the list of pros and cons provided for different decisions, which gives survivors a clear idea of what to expect when re porting a case to the col lege, getting a rape kit, and pursuing justice through the courts.Forexample, when presenting the option of receiving a medical foren sic exam (also known as a rape kit), Here4U informs users that while the test can prove a sex act took place, it cannot prove that someone was sexually assaulted and that while trauma-informed medical professionals per form the exam, it can po tentially feel invasive and re-traumatizing.“Thereare pros and cons for each pathway, just so we’re not persuading sur vivors to go one way or an other,” Slater said.

Ineed a Duehelicopter.tothebirth of my granddaughter up in the Pasadena area, and several friends living in the coastal and valley areas of Los Angeles, I am once again required to drive its freeways. And those freeways live up to their miserable reputation of being wild ly confusing and poorly marked.I managed well enough when I lived up there, wandering no far ther than north to south on the 405, the 5 and the 210. But now I am required to access the east-west road ways and whoever did the signage should be horse whipped.The multiple free ways crossing and inter connecting one another is like being forced to unrav el Christmas lights at 65 mph.I tried hard to careful ly focus on finding the exit for, let’s say, the 101 off of the 134, on my way to the 110 and then the 10 to get to SantaJockeyingMonica.from lane to lane, trying to avoid un expected and oddly num bered exits was exhaust ing. And yes, I missed a turn orAndtwo.worse, the sig nage made me think I had missed a turn or two, requiring me to get off at a random exit and work with my half-baked GPS options to get my bearings. Then I had to find the way back onto the freeway. That’s just the most fun. It is not the way I want to get to knowEachL.A.time I go up to Eagle Rock, I have taken a different route.

This is, I believe, the area’s oldest freeway, with only two lanes and neighbor hood streets serving as onramps.You also have to stop before merging and there are no merge lanes. It is staggering.Thenext time, I took a northbound route that I thought merged with the 210. It didn’t. It spit me out in northeast Pasadena and led me on a spaghetti bowl of surface streets and stop lights before I got to my destination.Thelast time, I did better on the 5 to the 605, but once I got on the 134, signage and my GPS were vague.

By Laura Place SAN MARCOS — Ten years after child abuse pre vention and treatment or ganization Casa de Amparo moved its residential treat ment center to San Marcos, local leaders are celebrat ing the opening of an onsite health clinic that will serve young women and their chil dren in ongoing residential programs.TheTrueCare & Len nar Foundation Health Cen ter was born out of Casa de Amparo’s partnership with San Diego County health care provider TrueCare, which is providing medical staff for the center, as well as the local office of resi dential developer Lennar, which retrofitted the former residential cottage into a medicalWithspace.amedical exam ination room, mini labora tory and office space, the 600-square-foot clinic will provide primary care ser vices for young women ages 12 to 18 traumatized by se vere abuse and neglect who reside on the 11.4-acre San Marcos campus. “A big part of what True Care does is really meeting patients where they’re at in their health care journey,” said TrueCare CEO Mi chelle Gonzalez. “For these young girls, what they real ly need is an abundance of care and support. If we’re able to provide the services on campus for them, it’s a win-win for everybody.” During a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the center on Thursday, Aug. 11, officials shared their hope that the onsite clinic will remove some of the barriers these young women face in access ing basic health services such as medications, chiro practic care and OB/GYN services and allow them to build trust with the medical staff.Casa de Amparo CEO Mike Barnett called the center a “game-changer” for the organization and the residents they serve. “These young women have never had a reason to trust an adult in their life. And when we tell them, ‘Hey, it’s time to get up, we’re gonna drive to Escon dido to see a doctor,’ that’s already kind of invasive and scary to these young wom en,” Barnett “Havingsaid.the medical center on our campus will allow clinical staff to build trusting relationships with the residents to help them heal and move forward in

It’s been that way since 2017, when he just missed making the roster. Since, his contributions have climbed, like a team mate going for one of his well-placed passes. Trav eling with the disc isn’t al lowed, but taking different paths to the playoffs is OK. “I was a practice player and I just kind of worked my way up through the ranks,” RubinThesaid.Growlers (9-3) fin ished in third place in the West Division and Rubin set career highs in goals (22) and assists (15).

EMILY KRUDNER of Julian, pictured with UC Health Milk Bank executive director Lisa Stell wagen, donates 600 ounces of her frozen breast milk on Saturday, Aug. 6, during a milk drive at TrueCare San Marcos. Photo by Laura Place



By Laura Place SAN MARCOS — Since giving birth to her son two months ago, Emily Krudner of Julian has produced more breast milk than her baby can take, filling her freezer with bags of frozen milk. She knows it’s the luck of the draw, as many new parents struggle with pro ducing sufficient milk for theirAfterbabies. learning that she could donate this milk, Krudner decided to make the drive from Julian to TrueCare in San Marcos this month to give around 600 ounces of her frozen breast milk at the Universi ty of California Health Milk Bank’s milk drive. “When I started pro ducing, I produced probably enough for twins. My freez er started filling up, and I didn’t know what to do with it,” Krudner said. “There’s a little bit of guilt because I produce so much, and I know some people don’t pro duce any … it’s been really nice to have some place for my milk to Krudnergo.”was one of several donors from all over San Diego County donating their bags of frozen breast milk to the UC Health Milk Bank on a recent weekend. Once at the bank, the milk is packed into coolers and distributed to newborns in neonatal intensive care units and families unable to produce their own milk. The drive, part of a larg er Health Fair organized by TrueCare, was held in honor of National Breastfeeding Month in August and World Breastfeeding Week, cele brated from Aug. 1 to 7. The event also comes amid a national infant for mula shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent supply chain issues. The need has left many parents desperate to find sufficient nutrition for their young children. UC Health Milk Bank received around 7,200 ounc es of milk at the drive— equivalent to 56 and a half gallons, triple the amount raised at the same event last year, according to TrueC are spokeswoman Michele Baker. The donations from that single day make up over one-third of the bank’s monthly donation goal. “Due to the recent baby formula shortage, these gen erous donations by moms will significantly help to increase milk reserves for high-risk infants,” Baker said.Several donors decid ed to give their extra milk to UC Health after seeing their babies go into the new born intensive care unit, or NICU, where human breast milk is especially important for high-risk newborns. After suffering from preeclampsia earlier this year, mother Stephanie Mar tinez said her baby spent the first three months of her life in the NICU. Now four months old, her baby is at home and healthy, and Mar tinez has been producing far more milk than she needed, at some points pumping up to 10 bags of milk daily. On Aug. 6, she donated over 500 bags of frozen milk she had stored, or around 4,000“Itounces.makes me feel good. Watching all those babies in the NICU was really hard and traumatizing. At least I know I’m saving some ba bies and helping out some babies,” Martinez said. Lactation experts em phasize that donating milk is no small feat, as it often requires hours of pumping and storing milk and trans porting it to donation sites. “The mothers that come here don’t care if they have to stand on their head and crawl. They want to do this because it matters to them because they want to help,” said Mary Sammer, vice president of nutrition ser vices at the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) office. WIC offers multiple ser vices related to lactation, in cluding connecting families to formula and human milk, offering breastfeeding management training for parents, informing them of their right to pump at their place of work, and find ing options for paid family leave.Kim Speckhahn, a lac tation consultant with True Care WIC and Health Cen ters, explained that many breastfeeding parents do not have the support they need and often feel alone. “There’s so much pres sure, and so moms have this incredible pressure to suc ceed, and then the supports aren’t there,” Speckhahn said. “Then you have the other portion of society who has not had a good experi ence with breastfeeding. There’s a lot of polarization around infant feeding. Here at WIC, it’s about support ing families in meeting their desires. A lot of time, breastfeeding and formula are used in tandem.” Among the clients at WIC, the majority state an intention to breastfeed during their pregnancy, and then many switch to us ing formula when the baby reaches around six weeks, she added.Health Fair attendees could also obtain free dia pers and food, donate blood, and connect to resources at WIC and ThoseTrueCare.interested in do nating or buying milk from the UC Health Milk Bank can find more information at

The goal: To travel to and explore San Di ego’s Liberty Station and do it without a car. Unfamiliar with Liber ty Station? It is the former Naval Training Center, com monly known as NTC. Be tween 1923 and 1997, more than 2 million naval recruits passed through its gates. The base’s impact on history and San Diego can’t be ignored. It trained naval personnel during World War II, the Korean War and Viet nam War. Peak population of NTC registered in the early 1950s at 40,000, and during the 1990s, the base contributed almost $100 million to San Diego’s annu al economy.Theformer NTC sat on 600 acres of prime real estate — the north shore of San Diego Harbor and bor dering a small channel that juts north from the harbor. After the base closed in 1997 and was returned to San Diego, the city enter tained bids and ideas for de velopment.Workbegan in the ear ly 2000s, and all but 10 of the 300 buildings have been restored and repurposed, their architectural details and the green spaces metic ulously preserved as they were when thousands of re cruits called it home. Picture an 18-year-old recruit from Billings, Mon tana, away from home for the first time, getting his first look at the base’s Mis sion Revival campus, seeing the palm trees and harbor view, and feeling the ocean breeze. Undoubtedly, he must have thought he’d ar rived in Today,paradise.Liberty Station is a mixed-use, walkable community with homes, a school, a church, business es, art galleries, theaters, an Arts District, boutiques, restaurants, ethnic food stalls, a brewery and local crafters’Thenmarkets.andnow, the prop erty was/is easily accessible via public transportation, so my faithful friend Wanda (always agreeable to comealongs) and I board the 9:43 a.m. southbound Coaster from Carlsbad Village Sta tion.We arrive 50 minutes later at the Old Town Tran sit Center and walk the final 1.7 miles to a Liberty Sta tion entrance on Rosecrans Street.

(The other 300 acres is now NTC Park, a vast expanse of waterside green where visitors can picnic, hike, bike, play sports, paddle board and kayak.) Our first stop, appro priately, is Building 1, the former mess hall and commissary, built in 1922. NTC’s buildings were num bered in order of construc tion.“As the former NTC was being redeveloped, many of the original build ings were transformed into the same type of usage,” Albrecht says. “A few ex amples: This mess hall be came Liberty Public Mar ket, the Luce Auditorium became The LOT (luxury cinema and dining), High Tech High were education buildings and the PX (base exchange) buildings are slated to become two live theater performance cen ters.”Other buildings have found their own path. Building 177, once the library, is an events space, a Dirty Birds restaurant now occupies the old base telephone exchange and the former brig (jail) is designated as storage. The North Promenade, once filled with marching recruits and bordered on each side by old barracks, has become Liberty Sta tion’s Arts District. Nu merous outdoor artworks by local artists dot the landscape throughout, and each building has a his toric marker (sometimes hidden, so look behind the shrubbery).Heeding Albrecht’s advice to wear good walk ing shoes is paying off. She keeps a respectable pace as we cruise around the campus, walking through the arched colonnades that give the architecture that distinct Mission Revival look.“You can see here,” she points to a place where layers of paint have been exposed, “how different colors of paint were used through the years.” We cap off the day with an hour of kayaking with West Coast Paddle Sports, paddling around the chan nel. It feels good to sit after walking five miles (accord ing to my phone). A few airplanes leave nearby San Diego International Air port, and then all is quiet. It’s mesmerizing watching the breeze rip ple the water and the bob bing seagulls. And then it’s time to walk that last half-mile to the bus stop.

TrueCare has 11 health centers, six Women, Infant and Children (WIC) cen ters throughout North San Diego County, and a fleet of mobile clinics. According to Gonzalez, they aim to open three more health centers and additional mobile clin ics before the end of 2022.


Patients are priority at Moradi M.D.

“My fear is that if we allow this to happen,” she said, recognizing the ben efits of SROs, “what does that do for the history moving forward of what we were charging per square foot?”Residents from the public also voiced their concerns.“Projects like this are the things that are mak ing prices and home prices unaffordable in the city, county and state and the rest of the United States,” said Eric Castro, who is op posed to the SRO and zon ing change.While Castro called on the council to build a community space instead of another hotel, other speakers asked the coun cil to consider traffic and safety impacts of longer stays at the site.

Mike Strawbridge, an 11-year resident of Mar Vista Drive, told the coun cil that he’s never walked his street because it’s “too dangerous.” He said that he’s concerned with the additional traffic from an ticipated residents who own cars and the safety of those who don’t. The site is not with in a reasonable walking distance to many city services, including pub lic transportation. Depu ty Mayor John Franklin agreed, adding that a pub lic initiative could per suade the North County Transit District to erect a bus stop.Contreras, the city’s representative on the NCTD board, said that the route maneuver was not likely — but she’d ask. Franklin said he un derstood the public's con cerns, but he believed the establishment of an SRO hotel on the site is aligned with the city's goals. The former motel site has drawn safety concerns from its neighbors in the past, and commenters voiced concerns regarding unwelcome behaviors con tinuing at the site. Franklin said he was willing to lose the tran sient occupancy tax in come as he’s seen the de crease in crime in cities with the Vista Internation al developments.“Wedispatched our deputies to [an El Cajon site] … and we verified the reality of the fact that crime was significantly re duced,” he said.

Seasonal creep is hap pening again and this time it's the beer in dustry and Oktober fest.Do you remember go ing to department stores? Before Amazon and online shopping, if you needed a pair of sneakers, cargo shorts or a No Fear t-shirt, you’d go to the mall. You’d walk in through the sliding doors of Macy’s or Kohl’s and embrace the air-condi tioned air offering respite from the wet heat that comes in the shade of late summer.You’d walk past the hardware, treadmills and high-waisted jeans headed for the food court for a fruit smoothie. You’d be halfway through the store when your brain would compre hend the sound: Is that Nat King Cole singing “Frosty the Snowman”?Why,yesit is. Christ mas music in July. Just past the jewelry counter, a couple of store employees would be set ting up fake holiday trees covered in various light dis plays and pulling apart the white cotton ball snow to spread on the ground. You’d continue on your way and step into the mall past the Halloween costume shop that opened in June. You’d shake your head. It gets earlier every dangThat’syear. what’s happen ing in the beer industry. Earlier this week, I re ceived an e-mail inviting me to try a fresh 2022 Okto berfest bier from one of San Diego’s fine craft brewers. “Now on draft. Available in bottles and cans!” Then I went to the li quor store. There was a huge display right by the door — Oktoberfests, Fest lagers and even PumKing Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Pumpkin Ale! Halloween is at the end of SeasonalOctober.creepmust be stopped!Oktoberfest is one of the biggest and longest-run ning beer festivals in the world, running from late September to the first weekend in October — and that's when I want to drink Oktoberfest.Notnow. Not when I’m running two fans in hopes of staying cool enough to fall asleep. Not now, when I’m still enjoying sweet shandies and ice cold light lagers during a day at the beach. Not now. The beach is still packed on Sunday evenings, and half the cars parked on my street rotate in and out from Arizona. It's too hot to visit the desert and red streaks of summer sunsets are still painting the sky. I’m taking a stand. De spite my documented love for the fall Märzenbier, no Oktoberfest-style beers will pass these lips until the first day of Munich’s annual festival, which kicks off this year on Sept. 17. Not because I don’t love them, but because I don’t want to see pumpkin ales in August or spicy wintery stouts in September, or a watermelon wheat ale in February.AsThomas Haynes Bayly wrote in 1844, “Ab sence makes the heart grow fonder.”

There is also a lot of local beverage news, and so much gets missed every week. Here is your monthly round-up of updates from around the region. But first, a rambling thought.National IPA Day was Aug. 4. Who decided this? Do you care? Do I? Did you drink an IPA? Internation al Beer Day was Aug. 5. Wouldn’t that encompass IPAsAccordingtoo? to the web site National Today, IPA Day was established in 2011 by Ashley Rousten, “Beer Enthusiast.”Ashley has craft beer bonafides as a writer and in dustry member. You might recognize the name from their time at Green Flash or from the cover of your copy of “The Beer Wench’s Guide to Beer.”Idon’t doubt the sin cerity of establishing a day for the style of beer that has had the most impact on craft beer over the past 20 years, but it feels like may be the passion that was once so focused on the IPA has been muted. On Thursday, I was driving through 100-degree heat from the Pacific North west back to North County. As much as I wanted one, there were no IPAs in the car, and if I had the choice, I would have reached for a cold lager or kolsch. Maybe I should establish a new Na tional Day … • San Diego Beer News is celebrating its 2nd anni versary by teaming up with Vista-based Eppig Brewing Company on a new beer called Just the Facts.

By Steve Puterski VISTA — From shred ding guitar to keeping the beat on the drums, kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Vista are thriving in its mu sic program.Theclub offers free lessons on several instru ments, and even recording sessions, for kids interested in learning how to play and readOnmusic.Aug. 27, the club is hosting its fourth an nual Rock & Roll Texas Hold ’Em Poker Tourna ment with a goal of raising $60,000 to help fund the program, according to CEO Matt Koumaras. The event begins at 5 p.m. at the Vis tonian.The fundraiser, which will showcase two kids’ bands from the club play ing several songs, is catered by Full Metal Burgers and Bleu Oak Charcuterie. In addition to the poker tour nament, there’s an online auction. Tickets are $125 each and the auction runs from started the music program about five years ago, Koumaras said. Brandon Brunt, who vol unteers at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, was hired to run the class es. The club offers lessons on drums, guitar, keyboard, and ukulele in addition to vocals, while also building out a recording studio for those wanting to record theirPrivatemusic. lessons are also available, Koumaras said. Lessons are offered from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The money raised will be used for Brunt’s sala ry along with paying for curriculum and securing new instruments. Kouma ras said many instruments have been donated and the club is always open to dona tions.“They get to partici pate for free, which is key,” said Susan Arias, vice presi dent of development for the club. “They get access to small groups with one-onone attention. It gives them access to something that they wouldn’t have without our music program.” She said early expo sure is key and the club encourages the students, initially, to try several in struments to find one they connect with before start ing lessons. She said once the kids “sort of master the basics,” they tend to form bands or groups and start creating their own original music. Arias said one of the benefits of music is an op portunity for kids to learn new skills such as focusing, paying attention to detail, finding motivation and developing a work ethic. She said the frustration of learning of an instrument is an opportunity for Brunt to help the kids solve the problem.Additionally, the music room provides an area to relax and allows the kids to recover“Justmentally.beingable to go in and pick up some drum sticks, then drum away and let the worries of your school day or something else go away,” Arias said. “Just focus on something that is beautiful and creat ing art.”Register at

It’s not all due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jim Hadley, owner of the 55 Yardline Sports Bar, said many businesses have been leaving upon hearing that their leases will not be renewed with the pending redevelopment. Hadley’s lease ends in February, and while he may be able to get an extension, he doesn’t know what will come next. “I’ve been here 17 years and made a damn good business out here. Now, I can’t even sell be cause without a long-term lease, no one’s going to buy if they can’t invest,” Hadley said. “I would love to stay in business; I don’t want to close my business.
