Minor cases may add up to big deal S.D. court mulls Brady protections for lower offenses By Jacqueline Covey

AIR SCARE ESCONDIDO — Palomar Health is partnering with national provider Kindred Healthcare to construct a new 120-bed behavioral health hospital near its current Escondido campus, in hopes of continuing to bridge San Diego County’s mental health services shortfall. Palomar Health officials announced plans for the three-story, 90,0000 square-foot Palomar Behavioral Health Institute with Kindred last week, stating that they have long been planning a comprehensive expansion to their existing behavioral health services. The institute will be one of over 30 joint-venture specialty hospitals operated throughout the United States by Kindred’s behavioral health partnership program. Palomar also partnered with Kindred to open a 52-bed

warded to the Senate. Issa made a speech on the floor of the House hailing Williams as “an American hero and a Top Gun pilot like no other,” saying there were few comparisons to the “the heroism and valor he demonstrated for 30 harrowing minutes, 70 years ago, in the skies over the North Pacific and coast of North Korea.” “It is, to this day, the most unique U.S.-Soviet aerial combat dogfight in the history of the Cold War — and one that is truly for the ages,” Issa said. Williams, who retired from the Navy as a captain in the mid-1970s, was on combat air patrol in a single-seat F9F Panther fighter jet, flying with three other squadron mates deployed from a carrier anchored in the Sea of Japan, on Nov. 18, 1952, when the Americans encountered seven Soviet MiG-15s at higher altitude along the

REGION — A pending decision on nearly two dozen minor infraction cases in the city of San Diego will impact thousands of county residents’ ability to contest traffic offenses and municipal code violations in court. Coleen Cusack, a defense attorney for Matthew Houser and other pro bono clients, argued for discovery in 17 lower-level cases — with others pending — and made motions against the constitutionality of practices within the San Diego City Attorney’s Office on July 15 in San Diego Superior Court. Cusack is — and has been — trying to extrapolate evidence from the San Diego Police Department and the City Attorney’s Office on all of her pro bono cases. The city has previously argued it has no obligation to turn over evidence to defendants in low-level cases, most of which carry fines but no jail time. If the court grants her discovery motion, the city will have to turn over any evidence that qualifies under rights established in the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision of Brady v. Maryland in 1963, a legal standard for minor infractions that would be applied countywide. Brady materials include exculpatory and impeachment evidence, including records of police misconduct, public complaints, body camera footage and use-of-force reports. In August 2021, a Superior Court commissioner ruled the city violated Houser’s constitutional rights after failing to turn

Fairgrounds saw nearly 1M visitors to county fair By Laura Place

DEL MAR — This year’s San Diego County Fair saw an expected drop in attendance from previous years following a slow comeback from COVID-19, with officials logging around 973,000 visitors to the Del Mar Fairgrounds over a 21-day run — 36% less than in 2019. While the fair typically averages 1.5 million visitors over 27 days, its 2022 return under the theme Heroes Reunite was scaled down with less staff, a daily attendance cap and a shorter time frame. Despite some reductions in service, Heroes Reunite marked the first return to a full-scale fair with a midway carnival since 2019, after the event was canceled in 2020 and significantly pared down in 2021. As the 2022 fair wrapped up on July 4 with a highly anticipated fireworks display, Del Mar Fairgrounds officials felt that

their goals for this year’s event had been met. “We’re thrilled with the response we’ve received,” said Fairgrounds Chief Operating Officer Katie Mueller. “The smiles on the faces of fairgoers say it all. Guests are telling us how excited they are to have the Fair back, as an annual trip to the Fair is a favorite summertime family tradition they’ve truly missed these past few years.” According to Fairgrounds spokeswoman Jennifer Hellman, daily attendance at this year’s fair averaged 46,400. While the fairgrounds have seen up to 90,000 daily attendees in past years, officials limited daily capacity to 50,000 this year in anticipation of reduced staffing and services. The fair’s carnival featured 76 rides — ridden a total of nearly 2.2 million times — and 60 different games for attendees of all ages to enjoy. This year’s

most popular rides were the Skyride cable car, the Big Wheel Ferris wheel, the Crazy Mouse roller coaster, the spinning G Force ride, and RaveWave. The other main attraction of the fair is the food, with 110 different concession stands set up and selling foot-long corn dogs and burgers covered in Hot Cheetos, elote, and cinnamon rolls, among other treats. The Fairgrounds sold over 67,000 tickets to its series of Grandstand concerts, with two shows selling out — Sam Hunt on June 24 and Gabriel Iglesias on June 30, according to Hellman. Officials are already working hard on plans for next year’s event. The 22nd District Agricultural Association, the board managing the Fairgrounds, will announce the dates and theme for the 2023 fair at their Aug. 9 meeting, according to Hellman.

Vista judge among Biden picks for federal court By City News Service

REGION — President Joe Biden nominated two local judges to fill open seats in U.S. District Court in San Diego. The nominations of U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew G. Schopler and San Diego Superior Court Judge James E. Simmons were among eight nominees for

federal judicial seats announced July 14. Schopler has served as a magistrate judge in San Diego since 2016. Prior to that, he served as a local assistant U.S. attorney from 2004 to 2016 and was previously in private practice in North Carolina. Simmons is the supervising judge for the supe-

rior court’s North County branch in Vista. He has been a judge there since 2017 and previously served as a deputy district attorney for the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office from 2006 until 2017. Simmons was also a deputy city attorney in the San Diego City Attorney’s Office in 2005.

State water restrictions should be a wake-up call


By A.J. van de Ven

n late March, Gov. Gavin Newsom called on local water agencies to implement more aggressive water conservation measures, and for the State Water Resources Control Board to look at banning irrigation of decorative grasses around commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. Then, at the end of April, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California declared a water shortage emergency, requiring millions of people to cut their outdoor watering to one day a week. These moves came as no great surprise given the drought conditions our state and much of the West have faced over the last two decades, which has only intensified over the past two years. In early June, 49% of the lower 48 states were in drought. Indeed, water restrictions have been announced or mooted not only here in California, but also Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Climate trends suggest water restrictions are likely to become an ongoing fact of life, so there’s an urgent need for us to think about our water use differently. We need to take a holistic approach that considers all the factors contributing to how much water we need to use and how often we use it. My company is based in Carlsbad. We make smart irrigation systems, so naturally I’m in favor of their use. And technology has a central role to play in conserving water. Smart irrigation technology can reduce water usage by up to 40%, because it uses weather data and weather and soil moisture sensors to ensure water isn’t being wasted. But technology is not

the full answer. There’s a mindset change that needs to take place, too. Instead of landscaping with non-native plants for example, native and in some cases drought-tolerant plants will often produce better outcomes with less irrigation being necessary. Using mulch, rocks or recycled tire shavings will help to trap the moisture in the soil. Without that ground layer, when the soil is exposed to the heat, it will evaporate more quickly. Public and commercial enterprises can analyze their entire landscape to look at how they can best utilize irrigation. Ideally, they can replace high water usage plants with low water usage plants. If possible, they should use the sprinkler heads that are best suited for the particular area of the landscape, whether that’s a micro emitter subsurface drip, rotary nozzle or another of the many options available. Getting rid of wasteful spray nozzles is critical: 30% of water is lost on the wind. It literally blows away! They can also look at the soil itself. Without the right type of topsoil, losing water to runoff can be significant; solid clay, for example, means the water just doesn’t penetrate the soil to get to the plants’ roots. At home we can take shorter showers and ensure faucets are not left running. Those small adjustments are not going to have the impact that water restrictions or wholesale innovation in agriculture and other industries will have. But encouraging home water savings will help us keep water conservation at the top of our minds, making water sustainability a

key part of our thinking, similar to how we think about recycling paper and plastics. We should look at more widespread adoption of potable reuse: making water treatment and recycling the norm, both for landscape use and as a drinking water source. It’s important to remove the stigma that exists around the recycling of water and instead create a consumer demand. Consumer expectation is a powerful force. It would be the most important driver in the acceptance of potable reuse, in the same way that consumer preference has underpinned the widespread take-up of renewable energy today. That sort of innovative thinking could be incorporated into all aspects of our day to day lives; that’s as true for agriculture, industry, governments, municipalities, businesses and commercial property owners, as it is for all of us. We can all agree that we’d like to be surrounded by beautiful landscapes: Beautiful surroundings are fantastic for our mental health and well-being. But those landscapes should be designed intelligently, making use of smart irrigation and including suitable plant types for the area. They can serve their function, add aesthetic appeal and minimize water waste. We need a revolution in the way we think about water use. Water is our most precious resource. Let’s be sure we’re treating it that way. A.J. van de Ven is president of Carlsbad-based smart irrigation company Calsense and a board member of the nonprofit EcoLife Conservation, and has taught a course in water management at California State University at San Marcos.

here appears to be no end to the new laws that Sacramento’s dominant Democratic legislators want to pass in their effort to make California at least as dense as New York state. Their latest effort seems likely to be as onerous — and unsuccessful — at this task as the infamous 2021 SB 9 and SB 10, which effectively end single family residence (R-1) zoning everywhere in this highly varied state. The two earlier laws — which may face a referendum to cancel them in the 2024 election — have so far had little effect. They allow all but the smallest current R-1 lots to be split in two, with each lot eligible for a duplex and a small additional dwelling unit, also known as a “granny flat.” Cities and counties cannot nix such efforts to multiply housing units by a 6-1 ratio over current levels. But it’s not happening on a large scale, very possibly because the state housing shortage estimates they were designed to mitigate probably are nowhere near accurate. The actual housing shortage appears to be far smaller than levels claimed by the state Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). Using HCD numbers, Gov. Gavin Newsom campaigned hard in 2018 for construction of 3.5 million new units by 2025, but fewer than half a million have actually been built on his four-year watch. Newsom now says just 1.8 million new units are needed, half what he claimed four years ago. And a springtime report from the nonpartisan state auditor found HCD figures lack solid documentation, suggesting the real need may be far lower than even Newsom’s latest numbers, which he proffered without any documentation. Now come the legislators with a new bill called AB 2011, based on a supposed HCD estimate of 2.5 million new housing units needed as soon as possible. This proposed law, titled the Affordable Housing and High Road Jobs Act of 2022, offers no explanation of what a High Road job might be, except that any building under its auspices would require that all labor be paid union wages — in short, the highest in the construction industry. No wonder several under-construction affordable housing projects are coming in right now at more than $1 million in building costs per unit. These may be offered at below-market rents to some Californians, but they in no way are affordable for the taxpayers who are actually footing most of the costs.

california focus

tom elias

AB 2011 is different and probably even less affordable to local taxpayers than the laws that spawned the current hyper-expensive housing construction. It provides a “ministerial” approval process for all affordable or low-rent housing proposed along commercial transportation corridors. In short, this means automatic approval by a rubber-stamping official in each city or county where developers might want to build along major streets and highways. It makes such projects exempt from virtually all laws governing environmental or neighborhood impacts of these purported new buildings, which must also offer ground-floor commercial space. But if a developer finds a project approved under these terms doesn’t “pencil out,” a portion of the units can be rented or sold at market rates much higher than so-called affordable housing. Even the state’s building trade unions don’t like that. “The bill provides a path to developer profits with little protection for workers or meaningful impact from community members,” said a statement from the state’s Building and Construction Trades Council. So even the unions, which enthusiastically backed SB 9, SB 10 and other densifying measures passed over the last five years don’t much like this one. Some opponents note both the unreliability of HCD need estimates and the fact that many investors and speculators buying up existing housing are keeping it vacant, producing what is essentially a false, manufactured housing shortage designed to keep prices up. So this latest densifying proposal, sponsored by Democratic Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks of Oakland, may have too many flaws to make it past a very pro-density Legislature and an even more pro-housing governor. But maybe not. The flaws in SB 9, SB 10 and other densifying measures that did pass were just as evident as those afflicting the newest proposal, yet they passed handily and Newsom signed them into law. So what’s to stop this one, too? Email Thomas Elias at

San Marcos clears way for taller buildings in North City  Council gives

project developer design flexibility By Laura Place

SAN MARCOS — Developers of San Marcos’ rapidly growing North City area have been granted the flexibility to design buildings twice the height of what was previously permitted, maximizing the limited ground area for public open space and fulfilling their enterprising vision for the downtown core. The San Marcos City Council unanimously approved this change during a packed Tuesday meeting at City Hall, granting San Diego real estate developer Sea Breeze Properties’ request for a major amendment to the University District Specific Plan adopted in 2009 that outlines development standards for the area now known as North City. These changes include increasing the previous maximum building height from eight stories to 16 stories, a reduction in the number of planned hotel, medical office and commercial retail spaces to be built, and the elimination of two planned bridges. These changes, Sea Breeze officials said, allow them to better deliver on goals for the North City project by facilitating residential development with greater architectural creativity, drawing in high-quality retail and industry tenants, and creating a more attractive layout prioritizing public open spaces. “What we need is height flexibility,” Gary Levitt, principal of Sea Breeze Properties, told the City Council. “With taller buildings, less of our land will be covered in buildings, giving us the opportunity to create better and larger public spaces, which at the end of the day, is where all the magic happens.” The 195-acre North City project area is located south of state Route 78,

north of Barham Drive and overlapping Twin Oaks Valley Road to the east and west, bordered by CSU San Marcos as well as Kaiser Hospital. The project’s adjusted entitlement now allows 250 hotel rooms, 920,000 square feet of office space, 345,000 square feet of retail, and up to 31 acres of parks and urban open space. The entitlement for residential development — 3,400 residential units including mixed-family residences, student housing and affordable housing — is unchanged from the 2009 plan. Dozens of residents attended the council’s Tuesday meeting to speak in favor of the project, including CSU San Marcos students living in North City’s residential developments, existing business owners and city residents who enjoy visiting the area’s public spaces. Around 15% of the project has been completed as of this year, with Sea Breeze already developing

266 units of market-rate multifamily housing, 866 beds of student housing in projects like Block C and The Quad, as well as the 28,000-square-foot Mesa Rim Climbing Gym, 20,000-square-foot Draft Republic Brewery and medical and office spaces. “Because of where I live, I don’t have to use my car basically ever. I walk seven minutes to my school at CSU San Marcos, two minutes down the stairs to my job at Copa Vida and 12 minutes to the grocery store,” said student and Block C resident Madison Cavanna. “One of the favorite parts of where I live is all the people I’ve met in all the little sitting areas and coffee patios right outside my building. I wish for this plan to go through because I wish there was more room for all of us to hang out.” While the majority spoke in favor of the changes, others were concerned about the increased heights changing the character of

the city. Renderings showing how taller buildings could affect the view of the skyline drew groans of disgust from several audience members. “These city residents have done all it could to preserve the ridgeline and now the developer wants to amend the already approved amendment? What, for a little more open space and footprint? I have nothing against pedestrian friendly streets. It’s the fact that up to 12-stories will cut right through the ridgeline view,” resident Josephine Carroll wrote. Some residents also vehemently opposed the developer’s request to remove two planned bridges from the University District Specific Plan — a pedestrian bridge over Discovery Street running west of Twin Oaks Valley Road to the area south of Barham Drive, and a fly-over bridge over State Route 78 connecting north to Johnston Way. “Deleting a pedestrian bridge is not a good thing,”

said resident Debra Wilhoite. “Living in Discovery Hills, I have not had a decent bike riding lane to go to Restaurant Row from my community.” City staff said the bridges would no longer be needed with the removal of the planned medical offices, hotels and retail spaces, since this would lead to far less vehicle travel than originally projected in 2009. They also noted that the San Marcos Creek renovation project will bring two new bridges to the city, along with sidewalks, trails and pedestrian walkways for pedestrians and bicyclists. Council members acknowledged that while the increased heights and other amendments seem like drastic changes now, they will be appreciated by future generations as the city continues to grow. “I think we’ve realized in recent years that the Creek District is not going to be our downtown,

and we’ve realized that North City is becoming our downtown,” Deputy Mayor Sharon Jenkins said. “I believe one day, like when the college came in and other developments that we watched happen and were unsure of, I think our grandchildren and children tomorrow will feel how lucky they are to live in San Marcos, and that someone had the vision and courage to create something that really is extraordinary.” Along with the amendments, the council also unanimously approved preliminary plans for a 12-story mixed-use building containing 482 residential units, commercial space and parking; a five-story mixed-use building holding 73 residential units, commercial and office space and parking; and a 26-unit development of three residential units and 23 commercial units. However, they reminded the public that those and any other proposed developments in North City will come back to city officials for review and approval as architectural plans come together. “We’re giving them the authority to adjust their plans, and then bring them back to us with those possibilities. And so it might be 16 stories, it may not be, they might look at it and say, ‘We can make a better decision if we do this.’ But I believe we have to give them the opportunity and the degree of flexibility to offer those plans, and it will still come back through the normal process,” Councilmember Ed Musgrove said. Despite the excitement of new developments, questions regarding transportation remain unanswered. City leaders said while they would like to increase transportation infrastructure for the projected population growth from new housing, it’s difficult to secure resources based solely on projections. Still, they said they are in discussions with the North County Transit District about expanding public transit opportunities.

By City News Service

ESCONDIDO — An ex-con arrested earlier this year in Escondido for fleeing from officers, as well as possessing guns and drugs, was sentenced July 12 to seven years in state prison, capping off a twoyear stretch in which the man was arrested a dozen times. Craig Blas, 32, was arrested in May, when he was found with two loaded guns, fentanyl pills and methamphetamine. He pleaded guilty to several felony counts about two weeks later. Escondido police said that after Blas was released from prison in 2019 following a sentence

related to drug and gun charges, he was arrested and released repeatedly over the next two years, including for evading officers, drug possession and weapons possession. In a statement, San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan characterized Blas’ numerous releases from custody as an example of “loopholes and deficiencies in the law.” The DA’s Office said the releases stemmed from changes to state law that led to sentence reductions for some defendants, as well as the emergency bail schedule instituted in order to reduce the jail population during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Escondido voters would support a citywide sales tax increase if placed on the November ballot, according to a recent survey of residents. Roughly two-thirds, 62% and 68%, of a sample of 1,022 registered voters supported a one-cent sales tax increase based on a survey conducted by True North Research, Inc. The survey presented hypothetical ballot measure language with two options: allow the tax to end by voters or in 20 years, with more residents favoring the 20-year option. The survey took place in May following the City Council’s direction in April to gauge voters’ interest in a possible sales tax increase. City officials have de-

the city’s budget woes due to its state-required public employee unfunded pension liability fund, which obligates the city to pay between $15 million and $22 million annually until 2044. Without additional revenue, the city would need to cut police, fire, road maintenance and encampment cleanups. In the survey, residents identified wanting additional public safety, infrastructure improvements and actions addressing homelessness to improve Escondido’s quality of life. “Residents clearly want dollars spent on public works, safety and homelessness,” Deputy Mayor Tina Inscoe said. While the survey

measure, the City Council hasn’t decided whether to pursue a one-cent, ¾-cent or half-cent tax increase. Escondido’s current sales tax rate is 7.75%, of which 7.25% is the statewide base rate and 0.50% is the SANDAG district tax. If a one-cent sales tax increase is approved, Escondido would join National City, Del Mar, Chula Vista and Imperial Beach as cities with the highest tax rates in the county at 8.75%. Councilmember Consuelo Martinez noted that Escondido’s demographics are similar to those cities. A one-cent sales tax increase would generate $28 million annually for the city. La Mesa is currently the

would have if a ¾-cent increase is approved. If Escondido opts for only a half-cent sales tax increase, it will join the cities of Oceanside, Vista and El Cajon with an 8.25% sales tax rate. Councilmember Mike Morasco cautioned that a countywide sales tax measure could limit Escondido’s ability to pass its own measure. Per state law, local tax increases are only allowed up to 2%. Following a presentation of the survey results on July 13, the council directed staff to come back with a draft ballot measure. At least four council votes in favor of a ballot measure must TURN TO SALES TAX ON 6

comed her with open arms, willing to help as much as possible — a familial closeness between staff that remains strong today. “Among the staff, we see it as we’re all in this together,” Aardappel said. “We share the same vision of wanting to help and support our students, and for

the most part students pick up on that.” Aardappel has designed her classroom to make her students feel comfortable as themselves. As a result, the room usually reflects each student in some way, including the 11th graders’ memoir assignments, which is a particular favorite for Aardappel, who believes learning about her students allows her to become a better teacher. While Aardappel could easily relate to all the books she read when she was young, not everyone is the same. Encouraging her students to find interest in literature and language arts means finding connections to their own lives through what they read. Aardappel said she has been diversifying her students’ books to keep them from remaining the same books in the canon as when she was in high school.

“Relating it to their own lives is the best mode to grab their attention,” she said. “It’s finding themselves in it that gets them engaged.” She focuses on the claim, evidence and reasoning model in her class. It starts with a claim that answers a question, using data as evidence and reasoning as to why the evidence supports the claim. In other words, teaching her students how to back up what they have to say and how to discern truth from lies. This model is something students can use outside of the classroom in everyday life, Aardappel explained. Principal Jason Jacobs, who recently became principal in Spring 2021, spoke highly of Aardappel’s ability to connect with students. “They learn how to trust an adult who gives tirelessly of themselves,” Jacobs said. “EHS wouldn’t be EHS without her.”

have been accused of ethnocentrism or, at least, a lack of adventure, because these days, I rarely drive beyond Del Mar to the south or Oceanside to the north. Now most residents of North County absolutely understand my form of regional agoraphobia. It’s paradise here. Still, things do happen “outside the bubble” and all of us are occasionally required to venture beyond. One big hurdle to staying North County-bound is the airport. It appears that in the summertime, getting from here to the airport can be very risky business. One time, a co-worker needed to pick up his mother, flying in from O’Hare, at 6:30 p.m. Anyone who has ever driven a freeway immediately knew he was in trouble. Then, every time someone passed his desk, they had yet another reason why getting from here to there was going to be a hot mess. Already knowing a rush-hour pickup would be dicey, things began to really pile on. First, someone reminded him that the Del Mar Racetrack was in the second day of its season. Ouch. Then another well-meaning friend pointed out that it was the first full day of Comic-Con, with people streaming in from all around. Couple this with summer tourist/beach traffic from here to Sea World. Yeow. At this point, he thought he had heard every horror story/warning possible about the impending trip. Oh no. It’s then I chimed in with my own sad reminder about airport terminal work underway, leaving no nearby parking and a very, very slow-moving line of drive-by traffic. I had discovered this the hard way, when I went to pick up my son coming in from Boston. Somehow, I had missed the fairly major development that the parking lot was now gone and if you intend to actually meet your guest as they descend to


be turned into the Registrar of Voters by Aug. 12. Councilmember Joe Garcia suggested the ballot measure posed to voters lacks transparency about its connection to the unfunded pension liability fund. Though the survey did mention the need toaddress the fund in some of its questions, Garcia felt it wasn’t apparent enough. “I think that fundamentally we have missed the point, and we have a major problem, and it’s been growing over the years… the plan has already been presented to us on how (the tax measure) is going to be spent, and it doesn’t have anything with the unfunded liability (fund),” Garcia said. “That is a very serious

small talk jean gillette baggage claim, you need to drive to a faraway parking lot and take a tram back to the terminal. That is doable if you have planned adequate time. I had not. Thank heaven for cellphones. Suddenly, we realized that the list of traffic-stoppers had reached the ridiculous level, and the speculation began. We figured that within minutes we would hear that Interstate 5 was completely closed due to a flipped semi, probably because of an earthquake, and that freak high tides had washed a whale across Coast Highway 101, as well. We figured in a hurricane, just for good measure. We began to wonder how hard it would be to “borrow” a helicopter and pilot from Camp Pendleton, because the terminal renovations won’t be finished anytime soon. After all this, I dragged my family out hours early to drop off my now-departing son. It was Sunday morning, but I still expected the worst. Me making him load up early and him not wanting to is his magic charm. Without fail, we had light traffic all the way, no beach crush, no Comic-Con commuters, only a handful of Arizona license plates, and even the drive through the airport was manageable. We arrived almost two hours before his flight was scheduled to leave. He gave me the look mothers are given when they are wrong. I stopped just short of telling him all my “almost missed a flight” stories … again. There is no justice. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer in the market for a crystal ball and a cheap helicopter. Contact her at concern that I have.” Mayor Paul McNamara disagreed the measure lacks transparency, noting that staff and the council have discussed the city’s unfunded pension liability fund for months during financial briefings. “In the spirit of transparency, if they don’t vote for it, the quality of life in Escondido will go down, which it will because we will not have the money that we need to provide the quality of life at the current level,” McNamara said. City Manager Sean McGlynn explained while it might be difficult to squeeze the information into the 75-word ballot measure language limit, the city can provide more insight regarding the city’s debt in education materials for the public.



over supporting evidence related to a citation for overnight camping. The commissioner, an attorney selected by judges to make decisions concerning a number of legal matters, said that by not providing discovery, the city violated Houser’s rights by withholding evidence from his defense. The city appealed the ruling, arguing that it conducted a case search of the Brady list in Houser’s case and found no “impeaching material found regarding” the officer that arrested him. However, in April, the appellate division of the San Diego Superior Court upheld the commissioner’s ruling that the San Diego City Attorney’s Office violated Houser’s Brady rights, subsequently dismissing the case. “The Appellate Division’s decision is plainly wrong and misapplies the law with regard to Brady and its progeny,” San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliot wrote in a request for depublication on June 16 to the California Supreme Court. “The decision fails to recognize the need for expeditious and economical treatment of infraction cases.” Following the April decision, Leslie Wolf Branscomb, a spokeswoman for Elliott, told the San Diego Union-Tribune, “the Houser decision is binding only to that case and does not require a change in process,” adding that only a ruling from “the California Court of Appeal or California Supreme Court” could force a change in procedure related to evidence in lower-level cases. Cusack, however, seeks remedy in all of her minor infraction cases. Cusack said she’s been the “monkey in the middle” between law enforcement and prosecutors as she tries to collect client case information — an effort that costs her hundreds of dollars and hours without reimbursement. “I never get the [evidence], they just keep throwing” the burden back and forth, Cusack told the court last week. Cusack hopes the judge orders the release of all supporting documents, recordings and other evidence that would support her clients’ defense. Cusack argues the pushed-through process followed by the city regarding minor infractions puts the burden — and cost — of obtaining proof on the defendant. According to Cusack, to get discovery, she was required to issue a subpoena and pay about $25 for records when evidence should be turned over without cost. The court’s decision on Cusack’s remaining 17 cases is expected within 30 days of the hearing.

Arts center draws scrutiny for ‘Pigs’ exhibit By Samantha Nelson

big bad wolves being us, hunted down, beat down, robbed of our civil rights, illegally detained and even executed on site because of our skin color, our associations and social/economic status,” Slick writes. “They were here to protect us, but who protects us from them?” Despite growing demands to remove the controversial artwork, the arts center kept the piece on display and released the following statement, that reads in part: “The board voted to continue (California Center for the Arts’) support of the ‘Street Legacy: SoCal Style Masters’ exhibition and of the installation in question without removing, covering or otherwise editing it. In conjunction, the board

also committed that (California Center for the Arts) will take a leadership role in brokering private and public discussions among the exhibit curators, artists, city leaders, community groups and others to further public education and foster the respectful exchange of ideas. As these plans are finalized, we will make announcements about ways the public can participate.” Mayor Paul McNamara, who liked the exhibit’s overall portrayal of Chicano culture, felt Slick’s piece was out of place and disrespectful to law enforcement. “I’m not saying the artist’s feelings are not legitimate or that his message is something we shouldn’t talk about, but blanketly putting out there that all police are

bastards does not facilitate dialogue,” McNamara told The Coast News. The mayor also took issue with the piece’s lack of context. For example, McNamara said each piece of art had a Q.R. code linking to the artist’s website or Instagram page. But not every work included an artist’s description. “We’re trying to have a harmonious community, and that doesn’t mean we avoid controversy but if we talk about a sensitive subject, let’s make sure to put it in a context that people feel facilitates the dialogue,” McNamara said. McNamara has reportedly received “hundreds” of emails from residents complaining about the piece and only a handful of people in favor of it.

Slick said his installation was “meant to open dialogue within our communities.” “I grew up doing graffiti and my father was in law enforcement, so you can imagine the tension at the dinner table,” the artist writes. “I do understand the need for law and order in any society but the abuse of said institutions really gets under my skin.” During a special council meeting on Jun. 27, Councilmember Michael Morasco requested to bring back a “possible funding” discussion regarding the arts center. McNamara also noted at the meeting that he wanted to review the management relationship between the city and the performing arts center. The city owns the center’s building and subsidizes about $3 million annually for utilities and maintenance needs, but does not run the center’s operations. The California Center for the Arts is a nonprofit organization independent of municipal control — the city does not review or approve any choices regarding on-site art installations. The council considered possibly cutting the art center’s funding back in June as part of balancing the city’s operating budget, which at the time was projected at a $7 million deficit. McNamara said he isn’t necessarily interested in taking away funding from the center but wants more information and better transparency regarding its use of city money. “I don’t want to censor anyone but I also want to make sure we have some checks and balances here so we don’t have a public institution that’s dividing the city,” McNamara said.

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido City Council plans to discuss funding and management options for the California Center for the Arts following the venue’s refusal to remove a piece featuring derogatory terms against law enforcement from an ongoing exhibition. In late June, the arts center launched “Street Legacy: So Cal Style Masters” featuring artwork from nearly 100 artists, including Shepard Fairey, founder of OBEY Clothing, and local artist Zane Kingcade, owner of Streetlife in downtown Escondido. The showcase, curated by Bobby Ruiz, C.E.O. and co-founder of Tribal Streetwear, and G. James Daichendt, professor of art history at Point Loma Nazarene University, highlights Southern California’s subcultures, including elements of lowrider, surf, skate, tattoo, graffiti and more. Immediately following the exhibit’s opening, many residents reportedly became outraged at artist OG Slick’s “Three Slick Pigs,” which features three Porky Pig-style statues wearing police uniforms and dancing in front of a large blackand-white photo of police officers wearing riot gear. Spray-painted on the large backdrop is the acronym “A.P.A.B.” — “all police are bastards” or “all pigs are bastards.” According to a statement released by OG Slick on Instagram, the artwork is “a satirical look at excessive police force and abuse of power by some individuals who hide behind the badge of the largest ‘gang’ in the U.S.” “I used the (Three Little Pigs) fairytale as a representation of the current plight of our country, the

Alzheimer’s Association discusses “10 Warning Signs” at Silvergate San Marcos SAN MARCOS, CA – July 22, 2022 – More than 30 attentive seniors and family members turned out for an informative presentation by the Alzheimer’s Asso-ciation of San Diego to discuss the “10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease” on Tuesday, June 28th at Sil-vergate San Marcos -- the area’s premier senior living community. “Caregiving for a loved one who is living with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, or memory loss at home is often overwhelming and exhausting for family members,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “We partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to share resources with seniors and their families in order to help them assess a loved one’s cognitive status and navigate the path to better care, which is all anyone wants for their mom or dad.” Speaker Rebecca Turman, Program and Education Specialist for the San Diego Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, gave attendees a comprehensive overview of the top 10 warning signs to watch for as well as an update on the latest research under development for families concerned about a loved who may be experiencing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, key signs to look for include: 1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life 2. Challenges in planning or solving problems 3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks 4. Confusion with time or place 5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships 6. New problems with words in speaking or writing 7. Misplacing items and losing the ability to retrace steps

8. Decrease or poor judgment 9. Withdrawal from work or social activities 10. Changes in mood and personality Turman continued to say that although the scientific community is no closer to a cure, early detection is now possible and depends largely on seniors being assessed by a physician at the onset of one or more of these key warning signs. Families are encouraged to note what they’re seeing, become educated and seek guidance from trusted sources like the Alzheimer’s Association. “I came to this event today to learn more about this troubling disease because I have a dear friend who is starting to experience memory loss issues that have me concerned,” said Joyce Jablonowski, a local senior who received Silvergate’s invitation to hear about what constitutes symptoms versus what can be considered normal challenges with aging. “I wanted to know what to look for so hearing about the warning signs in Silvergate’s presentation today and then touring a professional memory care environment was really helpful. I now know how to find the support she needs.” Guests also heard from David Nelson, Marketing Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “Although we all continue to hope for a cure to Alzheimer’s in our lifetime, until that day, what we do know is that there is a lot seniors can do now to help delay the onset of dementia-like symptoms. Staying active, developing new friendships, continual learning, and proper nutrition all help the brain stay healthy. Independent senior living communities like Silvergate San Marcos specialize in just that.” After the presentation, guests were able to tour Silvergate’s newly remodeled Memory Care Suites, a separate building on the property specifically designed for

seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and memory loss. Participants were introduced to Silvergate’s unique concept of “neighborhood” design which provides a more personalized, home-like environment where residents enjoy the highest level of comfort, engagement, and supervision without the possibility of wandering in corridors or long hallways. About Silvergate San Marcos With one of the highest caregiver-to-resident ratios in the senior living industry, Silvergate San Marcos’ experienced memory care team provides high-touch care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With more eyes on fewer residents, families can rest assured that the greatest standard of care and the highest level of supervision will ensure the safety and security of a loved one residing at the community’s Memory Care Suites. For those actively looking for a proven memory care solution for their loved one, families can call David Nelson, Marketing Director for Silvergate San Marcos, at 760-744-4484 for more information about the community’s Memory Care Suites or visit

Summer’s off and running.

wo thousand pinkyarn pompoms. An intricately embroidered garbage bag. A giant pack of birth control pills made of pastel tissue paper. All these and additional works of art by local women artists are on display at the Women’s Museum of California, located in the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center in Southeast San Diego. The current exhibit is titled, “Crafting Feminism: Textiles of the Women's Movement.” The museum, which celebrates the struggles and achievements of women, opened its newest location on Euclid Avenue in midJune. (Its collections of papers and artifacts are stored at the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park.) “Some women left our opening crying,” said Felicia Shaw, standing in the 1,700-square-foot space where the walls are covered with art fashioned from paint, fabric, paper, thread, yarn and plastic bags. “(These women) never had the occasion to be in a space dedicated to telling their stories. It’s important to find yourself without having to sift through lots of other stuff.” The museum is one of five in the country dedicated to women’s history, and the Smithsonian has one on the drawing board, according to Shaw. The museum had its origins with San Diegan Mary Maschal (1924-1998), a historian, lobbyist and lecturer who had an extensive collection of artifacts that told of the history and experiences of women, especially in San Diego and the state. “She was a self-taught historian who was concerned with the lack of representation of women,” Shaw said.

opened her large Victorian home in the Golden Hill neighborhood so the public could see her collection. “It wasn’t long before she outgrew her home. The collection was then moved to a teeny space, but at least it wasn’t her home.” In 2001, the museum co-founded the San Diego County Women’s Hall of Fame, and in 2011, moved to the Arts District in Liberty Station (the Naval Training

ESCONDIDO — Following eviction, some of the former residents of an El Norte property face homelessness and housing insecurity. Several residents who lived in a house as well as a few trailers on a property at 2130 W. El Norte Pkwy were ordered to move out in the early-morning hours of July 6. While accused as squatters by some neighbors and other news outlets, the residents had received permission to live there from the previous owners. The owner, Robert E. Donelson, died in 2019. Later, the plan was for his stepdaughter Terry Bearer and the other residents of the property to pool money to buy the property, but the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) bought the property after it fell into foreclosure in September 2021. In May, a court ruled in favor of HUD in an unlawful detainer case, giving the agency permission to evict the residents from the property. HUD is responsible for national policy and programs addressing the country’s housing needs. The agency provides cities with grant funding for affordable housing, homeless resources and economic opportunities. At the same time, the city of Escondido sued the residents for turning the property into a “public nuisance.” The lawsuit cited large amounts of “trash, junk, debris, inoperable vehicles” as well as tenants living in RVs connected to public utilities on the property, all of which are against city code. Residents wanted to appeal the case but were unable to do so. Although some neighbors have complained about the property, which is surrounded by growingly dense residential development, others weren’t bothered. Ryleigh Sims, a neighbor who bought her house last year, said the property never affected her property values. While she understands that HUD had a legal right to evict the residents, that “doesn’t make it moral.” “I don’t feel the property is a nuisance or the (former residents),” Sims said in an email. “I don’t really notice them.” Residents were also threatened to vacate the property last month when their water was shut off.

Juliana Musheyev, one of the organizers, has kept in close contact with at least three of the property’s former residents. So far, she said,, one of them has found a place to hook up her trailer; another had to park her trailer near her work, which is against city code and has already gained her several visits from police and code enforcement.

JULY 22, 2022 individuals, could prevent them from going back to the street, but high demand has made it difficult. “We provide a lot of services including shelter and housing, but the bad news is all of those shelters are full with very limited resources that frankly don’t keep up with the demand now,” said Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith. “We’ve seen a more than 50% increase in family homelessness regionally.” North County needs more homeless shelters, according to Anglea. “There’s a big misconception or lack of understanding from people in the community who think if someone is homeless and wants to get help, they could just agree to go to a

shelter,” Anglea said. “While that may be true in the city of San Diego, which has 2,000 shelter beds, there are only 99 brick-and-mortar shelter beds for more than 1,400 people experiencing homelessness in one night in North San Diego County.” While the city of Oceanside prepares to open

its new 50-bed shelter and the city of Vista intends to launch a safe, overnight parking program, far more resources are needed to help shelter homeless individuals and families. “We need shelters in all of our communities experiencing homelessness,” Anglea said. Interfaith has been op-

erating a temporary shelter through a motel since last August using COVID-19 relief funds. That program has so far serviced 250 people with five babies born to families in the shelter since it opened. Interfaith is currently renovating a location on North Ash Street for a permanent shelter.

“We operate low barrier shelters that are trauma informed,” Anglea said. “We meet individuals wherever they are and help them get stabilized.” But for many of the residents who were evicted earlier this month, they feel as though they were kicked out without any tangible help from the city.

The perfect escape from the city.

Carlsbad’s newest trattoria is a winner taste of wine

frank mangio & rico cassoni


love when our readers give us suggestions. Frank recently got a tip from his dentist’s office about a new Italian restaurant in south Carlsbad. As lovers of Italian cuisine, Taste of Wine was ready to visit the 2051 Cucina Italiana. Don’t let the restaurant’s location in a business park across from McClellan–Palomar Airport fool you — it’s some of the best Italian food and welcome addition to the city. 2051 creates authentic, homemade cuisine from the owners' roots in the Province of Modena in northern Italy, famous for Ferrari cars and balsamic vinegar. Under executive chef Musmeci Santo’s leadership, the kitchen crafts each entrée with passion and attention to detail. The homemade pasta is exceptional and is in line with their tagline: “Traditional Italian Cuisine Made with Love.” Also making up the management team are co-owners Simone Vezzali and Giacomo Giovanetti. They first met at age five and grew up together. Additionally, Simone’s sister, Benedetta Vezzali, handles operations management. After coming to California from Madena, Italy, in 2007, Simone had the good fortune of meeting Roby

Vigilucci, owner of Vigilucci Italian restaurants in North County (which also has excellent Italian cuisine). Simone worked at Vigilucci’s until venturing out with Giovanetti to boldly open 2051 amidst the ongoing pandemic with Roby’s encouragement.

We were greeted at the host counter by Benedetta with Prosecco Millesimato, Bosco del Merlo, from Veneto, Italy. We started our overthe-top culinary experience with the Misto charcuterie board that was a meal itself. The board had Parma prosciutto, Gran Biscotto ham,

mortadella, speck, and soppressata meats along with Parmigiano, pecorino, and caprino cheeses. Our waiter Chris and Simone also insisted on the Burrata Cheese plate with baked eggplant, tomato, basil, garlic, and balsamic infusion, as well as the Brodetto di Cozze & Vongole, a

bowl of mussels and clams in fish broth with a touch of tomato served with country bread. To accompany all these outstanding dishes, Chris suggested a bottle of the 2009 Musella Amarone from Veneto — the Amarone capital of the wine world. I love the making of Amarone with intentional drying of the fruit for several months before maceration to create an intense nose and flavor with sweet spice, cherry, plum and earth. The wine was especially great with our tastings of the Tortellini Alla Crema di Parmigiano (tortellini with meat stuffing in cream of Parmigiano sauce), Tortelloni Burro e Salvia (large tortellini filled with ricotta and cream of spinach, in a butter and sage sauce), and traditional meat lasagna. All of these are with pasta made on-site. Simone was also kind enough to have us try a new dish, Tortelloni di Mara. While not listed on the menu, the dish is available upon request. Tortelloni di Mara was potentially my favorite dish, although it was splitting hairs. The squid ink tortelloni stuffed with sea bass and potato with a touch of lemon and topped with clams was mesmerizing. As hard as this was to believe, Frank and I made room for dolce — homemade Tiramisu! Lighter-than-air mascarpone topped espresso-soaked chocolate lady fingers garnished with cocoa powder. Whether a pastry with excellent cappuccino for breakfast, business or casual lunch, dinner with the fam (there are kid’s meals), a date, etc., Italian and California red and white wines, local craft beers, and events for up to 300 people. We cannot recommend 2051 Cucina Italiana enough. The restaurant provides convenience, fair value pricing, and high-quality dishes for a memorable culinary experience. Please let them know that Frank and Rico sent you. Info at

Roundup: Stone does about-face


f you’ve been on a Netflix’s “Alone” binge — which is the only possible reason I can think of for missing this piece of news — Escondido-based Stone Brewing Company is being sold to Japan’s super beverage conglomerate Sapporo. The company’s U.S. operations also include Anchor Brewing, which it acquired in 2017. This may be confusing to many, considering Stone Brewing as a company and founder Greg Koch have long decried industry sell-outs. In a last (probably) blog post, Koch acknowledges the aboutface. “Sure. I’d said it dozens of times,” Koch wrote. “Quite possibly well over 100. I 1000% meant it every single time. It’s what I truly believed. I said it while pounding my fist both physically and metaphorically on the table. I’d said it over the telephone or on video with the narrative emphasis ‘… he says while pounding his fist on the table.’ The words: I will never sell out.” Koch continues on to explain the decision, reflect on changes in the state of the brewing industry, his obligation to the future of Stone Brewing, and much more. The deal is reportedly worth between $165 million to $185 million dollars and is expected to close in August. At this time, Sapporo is indicating that they will be expanding the Stone teams, not contracting them. There is no questioning this is big San Diego Beer news, but not as big as it might have been sevTURN TO CHEERS! ON 15

Operation Duffel Bag helps graduating high school students who are homeless By Samantha Nelson

ESCONDIDO — Nearly 60 graduating students experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity were given duffel bags filled with more than $400 worth of items before the recent school year ended. For the last few years, the Assistance League of Inland North County has distributed these duffel bags as a graduation gift for McKinney-Vento students in the Escondido Union High School District as part of Operation Duffel Bag. According to California law, the McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless youth as those who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. This could include children who are living in hotels, motels, shelters, cars, parks, abandoned buildings, bus or train stations or other unstable living environments. The Assistance League of Inland North County is one of several Assistance League branches across the country, including several others in Southern California. Last year, the Assistance League gave 76 duffel bags to students across Escondido’s high schools. This year, that number dropped

to 57, which meant the organization could make each bag a little richer according to Jorgine Ellerbrock, chair of the Operation Duffel Bag committee. Prior to distributing bags to Escondido’s high schools, the Assistance League took Operation Duffel Bag to San Pasqual Academy. Ellerbrock said the committee reached out to the teenage members of the league to figure out what students would like in the duffel bags. The items included gift cards to Target and Walmart, blenders, bungee cords, laundry bags and detergent, sleeping bags and sleeping pads, solar-operated battery packs, kitchen tools, pillows and blankets, first-aid kits, toolkits and personal hygiene products. With the gift cards, students have the ability to choose their own products to buy, which EUHSD social worker Kim Bodie said is important for the graduating seniors. “It’s the little things we don’t realize that are so important to a young person — being able to choose socks or shoes, deodorant — gift cards give them the autonomy to choose,” Bodie said.

For Bodie, the duffel bags serve as a way to show the students that there are people who care for them. “It can feel alone, isolating and even shameful to be in these circumstances,” Bodie said. “Operation Duffel Bag is a really wonderful send-off at a time of angst and anxiety.” The Assistance League has also supported district students through scholarships, computer donations and Operation School Bell, which invites students and their families to go to Kohl’s and spend money from the organization on clothes. Operation School Bell costs the organization $200,000, making it the most expensive philanthropic item on the budget. “We’re really just looking for the needs in our community and doing what we can to address them,” Ellerbrock said. The Assistance League of Inland North County runs a consignment shop at 2068 E. Valley Pkwy. in Escondido that helps raise funds for its community giveback events. The shop is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the first Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

High school finds new O’side home By Samantha Nelson

PALOMAR HEALTH has announced plans to open a $100 million Behavioral Health Institute near its Escondido campus by 2024, with 120 inpatient beds to serve those experiencing a mental health crisis. Courtesy rendering/Palomar Health



routed to an emergency room as a first point of care and evaluation, Palomar officials say patients requiring intensive behavioral health services will be able to find a more appropriate and specialized environment at the behavioral health hospital. Staff will provide emergency evaluations and intensive stabilization for those experiencing a mental health emergency, conduct an immediate assessment to work out a next-steps treat-

ment plan and work with private practice physicians to connect patients to further services. San Diego County currently falls far short of the state’s minimum recommended metric of 50 inpatient beds per 100,000 residents, with a rate of 23.34 beds per 100,000 as of 2021, according to a study by RAND Health Care and California Mental Health Services Authority. The need is especially high in North County, where dozens of behavioral health beds were eliminaturdays. The museum hosts a free, monthly, 60-minute walking tour of Balboa Park to explore the role that women played in establishing the park and staging the 1915 California-Panama Exposition. The next tour is 10 a.m. August 7. Check it out: Women’s Equality Day Festival on Aug 27. North County residents can reach the museum via the Coaster. At the Santa Fe Station (end of the line), transfer to the San Diego Trolley’s Blue Line, then to the Orange Line at the 12th and Imperial station.

ed in the last decade. The region saw the 2018 closure of the Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, which held 18 beds, and the loss of a 22-bed unit at Palomar’s former Escondido medical center location in the city’s downtown when it closed in 2012. Because of closures like this, many North County residents experiencing a mental health crisis requiring a hospital stay have had to travel out of the region, to the city of San Diego or farther, to access services. “At Palomar Health,

we’re committed to delivering the highest quality medical care while listening and responding to the needs of the community. We’re so excited to announce this new partnership, which will help leverage the District’s geographic presence to a regional level, enabling us to offer more care to the people who need it,” said Sheila Brown, chief operations officer at Palomar Health. Palomar identifies itself as leading the way in behavioral health support services. According to Palomar spokeswoman Bianca

Kasawdish, it is the only “safety net hospital” in North County to provide behavioral health services for Medi-Cal beneficiaries. The hospital’s behavioral health system includes inpatient care, an acute behavioral health unit, Gero-Psychiatric unit (for older adults), outpatient therapy, and a substance use disorder recovery center. In 2020, the health care network also opened a mental health crisis stabilization unit at the Escondido hospital that can serve up to 16 patients.


Yalu River. According to accounts of the mission retold in books and other media, the men were ordered by their commander to retreat to the carrier and establish a protective screen. Three of the pilots succeeded, but Williams soon discovered he had been boxed in by the Soviet fighters. Williams was forced to engage the MiGs as they swarmed him, culminating in a half-hour of gut-wrenching maneuvers to avoid being shot down while trying to take out the Russian pilots trying to kill him. “I was engaged mentally at the time,” Williams recently told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “A lot of it was awareness of where they were and how I had to maneuver to avoid them. They were taking turns. “I decided if I concentrated on shooting them down, then I’d become an easy target. So my initial goal was to look for defensive opportunities when they made mistakes.” Williams blasted four out of the sky and likely scored hits on two others, whose pilots never returned to their base in Vladivostik, according to the book “Red Devils Over the Yalu.” Williams said he ran out of ammunition and made a bee line for his ship, evading the seventh MiG pilot by diving in and out of clouds for cover. He landed uneventfully, but later counted more than 250 machine gun holes in his F9F. “He also survived a

37-millimeter round to his fuselage, where six inches to the right or left would have meant certain death,” Issa said. “This was an act of indomitable courage and the demonstration of the highest skill under incalculable duress.” Williams was told to clam up about the dogfight for fear of causing negative publicity for the Soviets, who weren’t officially involved in the Korean War. According to one account, President Dwight Eisenhower personally directed that the incident remain under wraps. It was not officially acknowledged until the fall of the Iron Curtain, and the ensuing release of Soviet

OCEANSIDE — Coastal Academy High School has found a new home in Oceanside. Earlier this month, the Classical Academies, a public charter school organization, purchased a nearly 100,000 squarefoot vacant office park in Oceanside for $11.8 million, with plans to relocate Coastal Academy next year, according to Michelle Stanley, the school’s chief communications officer. The school had outgrown the current Oceanside campus on Avenida De La Plata and had been searching for a new location in the city for the last five years, Stanley told The Coast News. “The school has been searching for a property for years, and we are looking forward to improving the property to make a beautiful campus for students,” Stanley said via email. Renovations will begin this fall to open the campus for students in Fall 2023. Once the new campus opens, the old high school campus will be closed. The new campus, located at 1305-1320 Union Plaza Court, will utilize much of the existing tenant improvements with more plans to create indoor and outdoor areas. Additional ADA and seismic upgrades will be required by the city as well. Single-family and multi-family residences surround the property, about a mile from the beach. “We are excited to offer the community educational choice and know that the central location of this new site will allow us to be more accessible to students and families,” Stanley said. “Add to that, having this location allows us to maintain our closeknit community while expanding the offerings that make us unique in the (Oceanside Unified School District) portfolio of educational options.” In addition to Coastal Academy, the Escondido-based Classical Academies operates six other school locations in Escondido, Vista and Oceanside, including Classical Academy High School in Escondido.

archives in the 1990s, which detailed the air battle. Since then, several personal advocates for Williams have sought to have him nominated for the Medal of Honor, but those efforts haven’t yielded momentum. Along with Issa, four other House members, all from San Diego County, joined to form an advocacy coalition in support of his receipt of the medal. “We won’t stop until Royce Williams receives the recognition he doesn't seek, but richly deserves,” Issa said. “It is long past time for Congress to have If every person takes one small step a real say on who receives toward being more conscientious the Congressional Medal of of the environment, the collective effort will change the planet.

Dr. Thomas F. McGee, PHD

Aug. 6, 1930 - Oct. 5, 2021

Dr. Thomas F. McGee, PhD, died October 5, 2021, in Encinitas, California after a brief illness. He was 91. Tom was born August 6, 1930, in Chicago, to Robert W. and Anna (Tyre) McGee. A product of Chicago Public Schools, he went on to earn his undergraduate degree at Roosevelt College in Chicago before completing his PhD in Clinical Psychology at The University of Chicago in 1962. Highlights of his career included a 7-year role as the Director of Mental Health Services for the City of Chicago. During this time, Tom was instrumental in the development of several community mental health

centers in underserved neighborhoods. In 1972 Tom and his beloved wife Lili moved the family from Chicago to Solana Beach, California, with Tom taking the position as Director of Outpatient Psychological Services at Mercy Hospital. After many years at Mercy, during which he supervised many psychology interns, Tom moved to a similar role with the California School of Professional Psychology / Alliant International University. After his formal retirement, Tom remained active in the psychological community, traveling to Hong Kong several times to train psychology students there and serving on several dissertation committees. During his career he frequently presented papers at various conferences; towards the end of his career, he became a vocal proponent of the need for professionals in varied fields to have a “Professional Will” Drafted during the Korean Conflict, Tom was very thankful for his good fortune that saw him stationed in France for 14 months, supporting a unit of architects and structural engineers. He took advantage of this posting to explore Eu-

rope with every furlough – this experience fostered his life-long love of travel. Tom met his wife, Livier Alvarez (Lili) while they both worked at Lions International in Chicago.

What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us. — Helen Keller, author and political activist

Each year both America and South Korea observe the National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day on July 27. This day was started as a way to commemorate the peace treaty that triggered a cease-fire in a long-standing war that resulted in more than 36,000 casualties for America & more than 103,000 service members wounded in action . It is important that we take the time now to listen to their stories and thank them for their service. The men and women who served in the Korean War were called to protect a people they had never met and to defend a country they have never seen. They answered the call and helped stop the spread of communism at a crucial point in world history

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You face the possibility of raising your relationship to another level. However, your partner might demand that you make promises you’re not sure you’re ready for. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) As changes continue, expect things to get a little more hectic at your workplace. An unexpected travel opportunity could open new career prospects. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Confront the person who caused your hurt feelings and demand a full explanation for their actions. You’ll not only recover your self-esteem, but you’ll also gain the respect of others. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That personal problem in the workplace is compounded by someone’s biased interference. Stand your ground, and you’ll soon find allies gathering around you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You don’t accept disapproval easily. But instead of hiding out in your den to lick your wounded pride, turn the criticism into a valuable lesson for future use. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) That former friend you thought you’d cut out of your life is still affecting other relationships. Counter their lies with the truth. Your friends are ready to listen.


LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) What appears to be an unfair situation might simply be the result of a misunderstanding. If you feel something is out of balance, correct it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A stalled relationship won’t budge until you make the first move. Your partner offers a surprising explanation about what got it mired down in the first place. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A coworker shares some startling news, but before you can use it to your advantage, make sure it’s true. The weekend favors family matters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your usual conservative approach to family situations might not work at this time. Keep an open mind about developments, and you might be pleasantly surprised. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Plans might have to be put on hold because of a family member’s problems. Don’t hesitate to get involved. Your help could make all the difference. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Relationships in the home and in the workplace need your careful attention during this period. Be careful not to allow misunderstandings to create problems. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a keen, insightful intellect and enjoy debating your views with others who disagree with you. You also love to solve puzzles — the more challenging, the better. © 2022 King Features Synd., Inc.
