SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council met on Tuesday, June 8 and gave final approval to their fiscal year 2021/2022 budget, which addressed a nearly $2.7 million deficit. The city is expected to receive $18.2 million in new COVID relief money. San Marcos will soon receive funds from the federal government’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). “Under the legislation that was enacted was a provision that allows cities that can demonstrate that the pandemic caused a loss of general revenues, to use those funds to make up for such losses,” said the staff report. In the meantime, the city used their reserves to cover the $2.7 million deficit. “In the current economic issues related to the pandemic, the drop in rental revenue is the primary cause for the deficit situation we are experiencing,” the staff report said. “Rental revenue accounts for 9% of General Fund revenue, down from the 12.5% that we projected in adopting the FY 2019-20 budget.” Despite having to dip into the reserves, however, the city ended $6.7 million above the minimum reserve level. Those excess reserve funds will be used to reimburse city employees for their 10% wage reduction ($1 million), dedicate funds to the three internal infrastructure funds ($4.7 million) and replace $1 million removed from the General Plan Update project. The budget shows a law enforcement budget of $22,737,062, an almost TURN TO BUDGET ON 14

Vista City Council bans single-use plastics By Steve Puterski

VISTA — Starting Aug. 1 the city will become the latest in California to ban single-use plastics. The Vista City Council gave final approval for its single-use plastic ordinance during its June 22 meeting, which requires food service providers (restaurants and others) to only distribute plasticware on request. Businesses with under $1 million in annual gross receipts, though, can apply for a hardship waiver for a maximum of 12 months. Additionally, the city will also ban Styrofoam on July 1, 2023. Those items banned as of Aug. 1 include single-use plastic stirrers, cutlery, lids, condiment packages, straws and to-go boxes, to name a few. As for foodservice

providers, the city’s definition means any person or establishment providing or selling prepared food or beverages on or off its premises within the city. These include restaurants, cafés, coffee shops,

drive-thrus, grocery and convenience stores, or farmers’ markets, according to the staff report. Also, the plastic and Styrofoam ban is another way for the city to address its Climate Action Plan and climate goals, said

Andrea McCollough, the city’s communications officer. She said the council is setting citywide waste reduction and recycling goals with a target of 85% waste diversion by 2030. Another bonus is the reduction of litter and an increase in city beautification, she said. Single-use plastics are the most commonly collected items for beach and watershed cleanups, she said, citing a 2019 ICC report. “The reduction of single-use plastics will assist in reducing waste that is left on roads, public spaces, and discarded by persons who do not use trash receptacles,” McCollough added. “In Vista, indirect costs include: letter discourages visitors, impacts TURN TO PLASTICS ON 7

CC Unit also posted screenshots of explicit messages allegedly exchanged between Corrales and the minor that depict Corrales making plans to meet with the boy in a bathroom stall, as well as making plans for a “dinner date.” In one message, Corrales tells the boy to dress casually because it “should not look like a date… more taking my son to dinner.” Ghost also alludes to explicit pictures that Corrales allegedly sent to the TURN TO CORRALES ON 6

Padres Game Day A Huge Hit With Silvergate Residents Eager To Return To Exciting Events SAN MARCOS, CA – June 24, 2021 Silvergate San Marcos – the area’s premier senior living community – hit a home run last week with their first big off-site event since hunkering down at the start of the pandemic, as residents and guests ventured out into downtown San Diego for last week’s Padres Game against the Chicago Cubs at Petco Park. Seniors from Silvergate were escorted in style by private bus to the impressive stadium where they were greeted with fanfare and ushered to their private, reserved space on the Pacifico Porch overlooking third base. Their bird’s eye view of the ballfield gave them a thrilling look at one of the first games of the season. The afternoon was filled with cheering, laughing, and dancing in the aisles, as residents and staff enjoyed each other's company while rooting for the Padres. The event was flanked by the game- time bell being rung by the youngest of fans and the action coming from the Padres commentator booth just overhead. The community spared no expense to treat residents to a complete game day experience with a ballpark-catered luncheon of barbecue pork and chicken sliders, creamy macaroni and cheese cups, roasted red potatoes, good old-fashioned hotdogs and plenty of ballpark snacks. For comfort, custom-made Silvergate seat cushions were provided to everyone as souvenirs from game day and lots of raffle prizes were handed out throughout the game, including official Padres’ jerseys, decks of baseball player cards and keepsake Padres’ pins.

Silvergate San Marcos resident, Else Rondinelli, cheers on the Padres with her game day guest, Mike Coleman, at the community’s recent outing to the baseball game at Petco Park in San Diego.

Residents Happy To Be Emerging From Quarantine “I am so ready to enjoy life again and I enjoyed the Padres game so much,” said Chuck Rabel, a Silvergate San Marcos resident. “This outing was incredibly well organized down to the smallest detail.

Outrage sparks inquiry into ‘racist’ tortilla incident By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO – Sweetwater Union High School District has threatened to cancel future athletic events with Coronado High School unless an investigation is conducted into a CIF championship basketball game that ended with individuals throwing tortillas at Orange Glen High School players. The incident occurred on Saturday, June 19, after an intense game that ended with the Islanders defeating the Patriots, 60-57. Immediately after the game, an argument broke out between the coaches of both schools. In the midst of the chaos, several unidentified people started throwing tortillas at the Orange Glen players. Orange Glen is a predominantly Hispanic school in Escondido — approximately 87% of its student body is Latino, according to US News and World Report. It was unclear who initiated the tortilla throwing. Coronado Police Department hasn’t publicly identified a suspect but said that an adult male brought the tortillas to the game, according to wire reports. Videos of the incident have since gone viral, prompting several members of the state Legislature’s Latino Caucus to condemn the incident. “This goes beyond a teaching moment — it’s a glaring example of racism from students who are old enough to know better,’’ said Sen. Maria Elena Durazo, D-Los Angeles, Assemblyman Robert Rivas, D-Hollister, and Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego. In a statement released Tuesday, Sweetwater Union High School District said they were “disturbed” by the incident as Sweetwater “has similar demographics as the Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD).”

tion. Francine Maxwell, president of the San Diego Branch of the NAACP, said those who threw tortillas committed “racist actions that do not represent San Diego nor the America we want all people to love, value and appreciate, according to wire reports. “Let’s be honest: The distasteful act of tortilla-throwing at a basketball game uncovers deep

title with Orange Glen, or strip the Coronado team of its regional title altogether, according to wire reports. The group is also recommending that two players who allegedly threw tortillas be kicked off the team, and that Laaperi be banned from coaching high school sports for at least one year. Both EUHSD and CUSD held emergency board meetings Tuesday

Let’s be honest: The distasteful act of tortilla-throwing at a basketball game uncovers deep social inequities that are fueled by racism.”

“Should the Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) choose not to adequately address these concerns, the Sweetwater Union High School District will consider actions, such as canceling any future athletic contests against Coronado High School,” the statement reads. EUHSD Superintendent Dr. Anne Staffieri released a statement, calling the behavior ugly, unacceptable and racist. “We do not tolerate behavior that seeks to marginalize, diminish or devalue a person for any reason, including race, religion or gender identity,” the statement read. “We must all work together, staff, students, parents and fam-

ilies, to look head-on at divisive behavior, call it out, and work to eliminate it. “As an educational organization, we have the obligation and the opportunity to use this situation to teach our students, the next generation of community leaders, that racist behavior must not be tolerated.” Karl Mueller, superintendent of Coronado Unified School District, called the behavior “reprehensible.” “We cannot allow anyone in our community to be made to feel unwelcome and we send our deep and sincere apology to the Orange Glen community,” Mueller said. The California Inter-

scholastic Federation (CIF) also issued a statement: “The CIF prohibits discrimination or any acts that are disrespectful or demeaning toward a member school, student-athlete, or school community... Upon receipt and review of incident reports from both schools, the CIF will determine the appropriate next steps.” Both school districts said they would work closely together to facilitate conversations between both districts’ students, faculty and staff. Multiple civil right rights organizations have also been outspoken about the incident and have offered to help both districts as they navigate the situa-

social inequities that are fueled by racism,’’ Maxwell said in a news release. “From marginalizing and dehumanizing groups of ‘others’ based on income and inequality. We are extremely concerned that the coaches on both teams modeled inappropriate behavior and specifically that Coronado High School parents and two team players threw tortillas at Orange Glen players.” The NAACP wants the CIF to either rule that Coronado shares the CIF

night to discuss the incident and their respective investigations. Coronado school district officials said they have identified the students responsible and promised disciplinary action. The Coronado Unified School District board voted 5-0 to fire Coronado High School boys’ basketball coach JD Laaperi. The vote was taken behind closed doors and the board did not comment further.

Man sentenced after fatally striking bicyclist By City News Servie

ESCONDIDO — A felon who struck a bicyclist in Escondido, then fled the scene of the fatal collision, was sentenced today to nearly 30 years in state prison. Jamison Connor, 42, pleaded guilty last month to gross vehicular manslaughter and hit-and-run counts stemming from the Nov. 23, 2019, death of 36-year-old Vista resident Kevin Lentz. Connor's guilty pleas were entered on the day his trial was set to begin, though a Vista jury still heard evidence and convicted him of unrelated charges stemming from drug possession and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Lentz was riding on La

Honda Drive just before noon when he was struck head-on by a dark-colored Toyota sedan that was ditched by the driver a short distance away, police said. Lentz, who died at the scene, is survived by his wife Lauren and a young son. Though Connor received a 29-year, 10-month sentence, much of which stemmed from his prior strike conviction for assault with a deadly weapon, Lentz’s family and friends say they were shocked to hear that the defendant could be eligible for parole in just a few years. Proposition 57 allows for parole consideration

upon the completion of the sentence for a prisoner’s primary offense if it is a nonviolent crime. In this case, Connor’s primary offense, the vehicular manslaughter count, is not considered a violent offense under state law and he received a sixyear sentence on that count. Lauren Lentz said she felt both “joy and disappointment” over the case’s resolution, as she and her husband’s family will now have to exercise “due diligence” in perhaps only a few years by attending parole hearings and writing letters to ensure Connor remains behind bars. “It’s a chapter in my life that I wanted to be able to close,” she said.

Per-mile tax is a nonstarter

I

By Sup. Jim Desmond

n 2004, SANDAG proposed a new sales tax to voters that would generate $14 billion dollars, which promised to relieve traffic congestion, improve safety, and match state/federal funds to improve the following freeways: I-5, I-8, I-15, SR 52, SR 54, SR 56, SR 67, SR 76, SR 78, SR 94, SR 125, I-805. And the measure promised improvements to public transit routes. Voters passed this under the impression their commute home would be made faster and easier. This has not happened. Instead, SANDAG staff front-loaded public transit projects while leaving 14 of the highway projects unfunded. Now, they’ve announced that they want to implement a new transpor-

tation vision. One that doesn’t include roads and freeways, but focuses on transit, even though the current half-cent sales tax San Diegans are paying promised improvements to roads and freeways. The latest proposal that will directly hit San Diegans’ wallets is a ‘road charge.’ If approved, San Diegans would be charged a set price for every mile traveled within the State of California. The money collected from vehicle drivers would then be used to pay for public transportation. This insane proposal should never see the light of day. San Diegans already pay some of the highest prices to drive in the Country. From the current gas taxes to a vehicle registra-

tion tax, San Diegans feel the effects, in their wallets, every day. Adding another tax, to fund public transportation, is a slap in the face. The message is clear from SANDAG and the State, they want to force you out of your car and on buses and trolleys. This new tax will be spent on downtown San Diego’s Grand Central Station, not for the promised road/freeway improvements promised years ago. It’s time for North County to say enough is enough - we should not be charged for every mile we drive. Instead, the projects that have been promised should be completed. Supervisor Jim Desmond represents the 5th District, including Oceanside, Vista, and San Marcos.

A closer look at budget complexities

T

By Asm. Marie Waldron

he Legislature just passed a budget for Fiscal Year 202122, and the Governor has until June 30th to sign it into law. Revisions are likely, and a series of “trailer bills” to fund specific programs will be considered over the coming months. More than $267 billion will be spent, including $195.5 billion from the General Fund. Positively, the budget increases funding for Special Education, including individuals with disabilities. More money for childcare will expand access and increasing rates for providers will help attract and retain workers. Funding for Universal Transitional Kindergarten will ultimately establish TK for all 4-year-olds. The Department of Developmental Services pro-

viders will receive fairer compensation so families continue to have access to care. Training for healthcare workers will increase, including for In-Home Supportive Service workers. Bond funds for flood management and groundwater sustainability will be allocated, the state’s special districts will receive additional funding, programs for homeless veterans will receive increased funding. On the downside, despite our current huge budget surplus, tax increases that addressed last year’s (temporary) deficit will remain. $7.8 billion taken from the state’s Rainy Day Fund to pay down the deficit, will not be restored. Employers, facing an estimated $24 billion in unemployment debt resulting from government-mandated shutdowns, will receive no help.

Medi-Cal is being expanded to undocumented adults over 50, despite struggles to serve over 14 million current low-income beneficiaries. The budget fails to include funding for fire prevention and forest health projects. Billions are provided for homelessness programs without reforms to improve outcomes. The budget provides no additional rent relief, despite billions provided by the federal government for landlords and tenants. Prioritizing spending of taxpayer dollars is a sacred responsibility. This budget, passed by a partisan majority, is a mixed bag. We should do better. Assemblymember Marie Waldron represents the 75th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Escondido, Fallbrook, San Marcos and Vista.

ice President Kamala Harris took a lot of heat for her performance in her first foreign trip as the nation’s No. 2 official, some bloggers calling her excursion into Latin America “a continuation of her failure theater.” That phrase came from a conservative website, but the far left also blasted Harris for telling the poorest of the Central American poor “Do not come” to the United States. The remark had future electoral implications because Harris’ fellow Democrats of most stripes are sympathetic to poor but enterprising immigrants from countries like Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. They blanched upon hearing her simple statement of the immigration preferences of the current administration and all other recent ones. Donald Trump, for example, took heat for his treatment of immigrants, especially children. But Barack Obama’s administration, with current President Joe Biden as vice president, actually deported more prospective newcomers to America. Whether Biden seeks a second term or becomes a caretaker president who leaves after just one, it’s all but certain Harris will one day run again for America’s highest office. If she does, she could collide with Gavin Newsom, provided the governor survives this fall’s recall election, as every nonpartisan poll indicates he will – and by a handy margin. As a rule, politicians who triumph over recall attempts are strengthened, the best California example being Dianne Feinstein, an unbeatable U.S. Senate candidate after she trampled a recall attempt while mayor of San Francisco. If Newsom beats the recall and then wins reelection next year, he could choose to run for Feinstein’s Senate seat in 2024, when she will be 90, or he could opt to run for president and thus crash into Harris. That would be a huge change. Newsom and Harris have shared campaign managers for many years and have long had an informal understanding never to oppose each other’s ambitions. That’s why Newsom, then lieutenant governor, stood by quietly awaiting a 2018 run for governor while Harris won an open Senate seat with little competition in 2016. But their understanding might not survive the reality that time is passing and neither is getting younger. Until Harris’ Latin American trip, Newsom

california focus

tom elias

had never uttered a critical word about the vice president, who – like Newsom -- got her start in San Francisco politics, winning two terms as district attorney before becoming California’s attorney general and then a senator. But Harris no sooner returned to Washington, D.C.. from her trip than Newsom checked in on the side of left-wing Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who earlier blasted Harris for her anti-immigration remarks. In a press conference just after Harris’ return, Newsom observed that “California has long had a different approach to immigration, a more inclusive approach.” He added that he has consulted with other federal officials about “how California can be more supportive in terms of the needs of asylum seekers.” That’s not exactly the Harris approach these days. In fact, her blunt advice for the Central American poor to stay put was reminiscent of her generally pro-police responses to law enforcement excesses while she was attorney general. So could Newsom and Harris ever face off in a presidential primary? Their mutual campaign manager, Dan Newman, did not respond to emails seeking to ask him about that possibility. For sure, it would be entirely unprecedented for two top politicos from the same state to vie for the same party’s nomination for president. It could set up a situation where they split what amounts to a pro-California vote, letting someone else slip past and get the nomination. Right now, Harris is best positioned to win the next Democratic nomination race, whenever and however Biden leaves the Oval Office. But she could be weakened in a primary by alienating the party’s left, which demonstrated its clout by keeping Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders a prominent candidate for most of the last decade. Newsom, of course, could also opt to play the waiting-his-turn game again and spend years in the Senate if he took the Feinstein seat. There’s a lot uncertain here for both Harris and Newsom, but the possibilities are entertaining, at the very least. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Library will leave ‘weeding’ to staff By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO – The Escondido Library Board of Trustees met on Thursday, June 10 to review and discuss the library’s policy of considering whether to remove books from its collection if they haven’t been checked out for three years. The library board is a five-member panel that advises the City Council on issues related to the operations of the city library. The “weeding” policy, as it’s known among librarians, came into question last month when Virginia Abushanab, a longtime volunteer with the Escondido Friends of the Library Group, sent a letter to city officials expressing her concerns over the policy. At the board’s May 10 meeting, the board decided they would reconvene to discuss public input in the library’s weeding policy. At Thursday’s meeting, it was revealed that Assistant Library Director Katy Duperry reached out

to professional library colleagues to find out if other libraries had any kind of patron oversight committee or Board review on weeding. “Eight colleagues from across the state, including a board member for the American Library Association, shared the view that deselection, or “weeding”, is something that should rest solely in the hands of professional library staff, because they have the knowledge of current industry standards and understand the collection, their community, and its needs,” said the staff report. The board reviewed the Collection Development Policy, or weeding policy, and decided to keep the deselection responsibility in the hands of library staff. “The primary responsibility of Escondido Public Library is to serve the citizens of Escondido by providing a broad choice of materials to meet their

informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs,” the staff report said. “Materials are selected to aid individuals, groups and organizations in attaining practical solutions to daily problems and enriching the quality of life for all community members.” According to staff, library materials are deselected, or weeded, for one or more of the following reasons: availability of information locally or digitally; duplication; subject matter is no longer timely, accurate or relevant; damage or poor condition; insufficient use; research value; preservation and storage costs. The staff added that the policy will be periodically evaluated and updated to maintain a timely and relevant policy. The board agreed that, ultimately, the responsibility of weeding and deselecting library materials would be left to the knowledgeable library staff.

San Diego County unemployment rate drops to 6.4% as recovery continues By City News Service

REGION — The unemployment rate in San Diego County decreased to 6.4% in May, down from a revised 6.7% in April — but well below the year-ago rate of 15.6% as the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic were becoming clear — according to figures released this week by the state Employment Development Department. Statewide, the seasonally unadjusted unemployment rate was 7.5% in May, down from 8.1% in April. The country posted a 5.5% unemployment rate in the same time period, down from 5.7% in April. Between April and May, non-farm employment increased by 2,000, from 1,398,600 to 1,400,600 and agricultural employment increased by 300 to 9,400. Leisure and hospitality added the most jobs over the month with an increase of 3,900 jobs — gaining for the fourth consecutive month. Accommodation and food services boosted

the overall sector by 3,100 jobs — 79% of the total. Arts, entertainment, and recreation — up 800 jobs — completed the overall sectoral gain. Government grew by 1,200 jobs, with local government — up 700 — and state government — up 600 — producing the overall increase. Federal government offset job additions with a loss of 100 jobs. Three other sectors recorded job additions: educational and health services — up 1,000 — trade, transportation, and utilities — up 900 — and information —up 200. Over the month, professional and business services lost the most jobs, with a decline of 2,500 jobs. The bulk of the loss was in administrative and support and waste management with a loss of 2,100 jobs, followed by professional, scientific, and technical services losing 600, but offset by an increase of 200 jobs in management of companies and enterprises. Construction fell by 1,200 jobs.

Specialty trade contractors lost 600 jobs and accounted for half of the overall decline. Heavy and civil engineering construction — down 400 jobs — and construction of buildings — down 200 — completed the sectoral loss. Manufacturing lost 900 jobs and financial activities lost 600 over the month. Mining and logging and other services remained unchanged. Between May 2020 and May 2021, non-farm employment increased by 119,500, or 9.3%. Agricultural employment remained unchanged. Leisure and hospitality rose by 46,100 jobs, the largest increase over the year. Accommodation and food services — up 40,300 jobs — accounted for 87% of the increase. Arts, entertainment, and recreation — up 5,800 jobs — completed the sectoral gain. Trade, transportation, and utilities increased by 22,900 jobs and educational and health services increased by 13,900 jobs.

San Marcos Unified faces budget deficit in ’23 By Tigist Layne

SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) held a governing board meeting on Tuesday, June 15 and held a public hearing on its 2021/22 budget, which shows that the district continues to face a growing budget deficit. The budget shows that the district is not facing a deficit in the current year or in 2022/23, but will face deficit spending in 2023/24. SMUSD’s total expenditures saw an $8.5 million increase from last year, which resulted in a deficit of almost $8 million. The district will be meeting its 3% reserve requirement in 2023/2024, but will have very little funding remaining, according to the report. SMUSD, which serves about 21,000 students in North County, also saw a decrease in enrollment of about 1,100 students during the COVID-19 pandemic, but according to Michael Taylor, assistant superintendent of business services, the district expects all of these students to return by 2022/23. Through other financing sources, the district narrowly avoided anticipated deficits for the current school year, but has showed a steady downward slide since before the pandemic began. In fact, the district has

During their investigation, the county Dems’ Ethics Committee evaluated seven complaints, interviewed seven witnesses and reviewed 33 pages of documentation including recordings, transcripts, social media posts and messages before deciding to remove Corrales. Eva Posner, a spokesperson for the San Diego County Democratic Party sent a statement to The Coast News via email: “Matthew Corrales is no longer a member of the San Diego County Democratic Party. He was censured last year by our members for the harass-

been projecting a budget deficit since the 2017-2018 adopted budget. Declining enrollment, increased cost of special education and the increased contributions to pensions are all factors that school officials point to as reasons for deficits like these, along with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike other North County school districts including Oceanside and Escondido Union, however, San Marcos saw a steady increase in enrollment before COVID-19. After the start of the COVID-19 crisis, school districts across North County, including SMUSD, have seen a decrease in enrollment and are all feeling the financial impact. According to state law, if a district remains in a deficit for too long, it may lose the authority to govern itself. To avoid this, SMUSD has had to make steep cuts and, in recent years, the district has even had to dip into its reserves. The district also recently received $36 million in ESSER and ESSER III federal COVID relief funds, which is intended to assist schools in fully reopening for in-person learning. The board will give final approval of the 2021/22 budget at its June 29 board meeting. ment and intimidation of a number of women and Jewish members of our Party. “He was also roundly defeated at the ballot box and rejected in his bid to serve on our state central committee. “Our members have made our condemnation of his despicable behavior clear and he is no longer welcome in Democratic spaces. We are sure the allegations will be vetted by law enforcement and receive their day in court, and that he will be brought to justice for his pattern of dangerous, wholly unacceptable behavior.” The county Democratic Party removed Corrales from consideration of endorsement as a candidate, removed his name from the list of Democratic candidates on its website and issued a rating of unqualified. They also required him to issue an apology to the seven complainants. Despite San Diego County Democratic Party’s decision, Corrales remained a member of the Escondido Democratic Club until June 15, the same day this video was released. The Escondido Democratic Club did not remove Corrales despite multiple members voicing their concerns about Corrales’ behavior. In Jan 2021, a member of the Escondido Young Democrats (EYD), brought

the issue of Corrales’ harassment toward themself and others to the Escondido Democratic Club (EDC) executive board, but the party still refused to remove Corrales. After the release of the CC Unit footage, the Escondido Young Democrats released a statement calling for the Escondido Democratic Club executive board to resign: “(Escondido Young Democrats) has known for months about Corrales’ propensity for harassment and incivility towards those he disagrees with. We condemn his harassment, as well as his alleged actions in the CC Unit Video. “Some members of the (Escondido Democratic Club) Executive Board failed to act to terminate Corrales’ membership thereby exposing their members to months of vitriolic attacks. This is in stark contrast to the leadership of the (San Diego County Democratic Party) and other Democratic organizations where decisive action was taken to separate Corrales from their membership. “Therefore, we strongly urge the (Escondido Democratic Club) Executive Board Members who refused to take action to resign effective immediately.” Corrales ran for the Vallecitos Water District in Nov. 2020 but was defeated, after which he

was no longer a registered Democrat and voted for Republican Congressman Darrell Issa, according to the Escondido Young Democrats’ statement. However, it remains unclear how the group came to know Corrales’ private voting record. Despite this, Corrales remained a member of the Escondido Democratic Club until last week. “They haven’t been taking steps to address our frustration in a way that’s meaningful or authentic,” said Justin Domecillo, a senator at Escondido Young Democrats. “That has been personally frustrating for me because I personally think that their inaction enables, and I wish that they would follow EYD’s example of publicly condemning this person.” An Escondido Democratic Club representative said they do not wish to comment on the matter, but said that Corrales is no longer a member. A spokesperson at Sweetwater Union High School District confirmed that Corrales was a substitute teacher but “separated from the district in 2009” and “is no longer affiliated with the district.” Sweetwater Union High School District declined to comment further for this story. Corrales could not be reached for comment and has deactivated all of his social media accounts.

Escondido to get more than $38M in new relief By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO – The Escondido City Council met on Wednesday, June 9, to hear an update on its Business Recovery Strategy and discuss the American Rescue Plan Act funding that the city will soon receive. The council also gave final approval to the 2021-22 operating budget and capital improvement budget. The $117.6 million budget has increased by roughly $9.5 million compared with the 2020-21 budget, and includes a $2.7 million increase in the city’s police budget and a $2.1 million increase in the city’s public works department. The budget calls for reinstating six positions in the police department, five officers and a dispatcher in the COPPS (Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving) unit. It also includes roughly $540,000 to increase traffic safety. The budget also shows that the city faced a budget deficit of $8 million in FY 2021/22, recovered by the use of one-time funds, a $13 million deficit by FY 2023/24 and further deficits continuing over the next 15 years, according to the report. The structural budget gap is expected to exceed

$176 million over the next 18 years. According to the staff report, Escondido has been allocated $38,808,509 as part of the American Rescue Plan Act. It is still unclear what exactly the city will be able to use these funds for, but more information will become available on July 16. “Until revenue is increased on an on-going and structural basis, such as through an increased sales tax measure, the city must continue to rely on shortterm, one-time resources to continue operations and avoid drastic cuts to city services,” the staff report read. The council also heard a report on the city’s Business Recovery Strategy, which was initially adopted in May 2020. The plan implemented temporary regulatory and non-regulatory measures such as permit extensions, off-site sale and delivery of alcohol and temporary signage relief to assist local businesses that had to alter their operations due to COVID-19 regulations. City staff will return to the council at a future date to decide if and when these measures will be scaled back as the COVID-19 emergency comes to an end.

County Water Authority: Region ‘drought safe’ this summer By City News Service

REGION — Despite continued hot and dry conditions in California, the San Diego region is protected from drought impacts this summer and through 2045, the San Diego County Water Authority announced today. According to a statement released by the Water Authority, “no shortages or regional water-use mandates are in the forecast, the result of three decades of strategic investments that create an aquatic safety net for San Diego County's $253 billion economy and quality of life for 3.3 million residents.” Gary Croucher, Water Authority Board chairman, thanked San Diegans for their efforts to “make sure that we have enough water to meet the region’s needs now and for decades into the future.”

business development, and where there is litter, results in lower property values, people are more likely to litter (source Keep America Beautiful), as well as Caltrans cleanup costs along on-off ramps and easements.” Additionally, the Vista Chamber of Commerce has shown interest in engaging with the city for a public awareness campaign, the report said. The chamber would target the business community to help assist with the city’s new ordinance. According to the staff report, Vista anticipates a significant amount of outreach and education to both residents and businesses will be required prior to implementing the Styrofoam ban with prepared food. As such, Vista and the chamber appear they will engage with businesses in a yearlong, widespread outreach campaign. “Staff will collaborate with the chamber, city communications office, and other partners to develop a campaign to educate the community regarding the addition of the ordinance to the Vista Municipal Code,” McCollough said. As for penalties, violators can face a range of punishment including citations, infractions or misdemeanor charges. They can be fined, with each subsequent fine increasing or possible jail time for a misdemeanor conviction.

“You have invested through your water bills and your water-smart practices, and those efforts are paying off in tangible ways,” Croucher said. “The key this summer is to stay water-smart.” Croucher is asking residents to continue water-use efficiency practices, including turning off the faucet while brushing teeth, fixing irrigation system leaks and using hoses with automatic shut-off nozzles. County ratepayers have conserved more than 1 million acre-feet of water over the past three decades, and per-capita water use across the region has decreased nearly 50% since the early 1990s, according to the Water Authority. Nearly 30 years ago, drought impacted the county for 13 straight months, with 31% supply cutbacks from the Water Authority’s

wholesale provider, the Los Angeles-based Metropolitan Water District. Since that time, San Diego County's water supply has been diversified, with a locally controlled supply from the Carlsbad desalination plant, and a conservation-and-transfer agreement that provides water from the Colorado River. According to the Water Authority, those two resources offer protection against droughts and other emergencies by ensuring sufficient water supplies through 2045, even during successive dry years. Another strategy includes local projects such as the city of San Diego’s Pure Water San Diego, which is projected to start producing 30 million gallons per day of drinking water in the next few years.

Commerce. Sanders added that he and others look to the Water Authority and its two dozen member agencies to provide resources that keep the county strong, “not just for today, but for the longhaul.” County farmers “have done their part by investing heavily in water efficiency so that they can produce an amazing cornucopia of products,” said Hannah Gbeh, executive director of the San Diego County Farm Bureau. “Our members make the most of every drop through high-efficiency irrigation systems and other strategies.” Joe Panetta, president and CEO of Biocom California, said that water supply reliability and diversification “has given the life science industry a firm foundation and the confidence to grow and thrive.”

Robert Ronald Vercauteren, 72 Carlsbad June 10, 2021

“Biocom California was founded on the issue of access to water — our members depend on reliable, constant access for sensitive research and manufacturing processes,” Panetta added. Margaret Leinen, vice chancellor for marine sciences at UC San Diego, said efforts by the Water Authority and city of San Diego “continue to produce practical, real-world benefits for water managers statewide.” “With continued research we can utilize the latest science to develop strategies for mitigating flood risk and increasing water resilience through improved reservoir management,” said Leinen, who is also director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. “This will aim to decrease the impact of dry years by improving forecasts that lead to capturing more water produced by atmospheric rivers.”

Escondido considers Community Choice Energy By Tigist Layne

‘Island’ a vivid portrait of race, class By E’Louise Ondash

VISTA — The cast may be smaller and the production’s running time shorter than usual, but the actors, choreography and music of “Once on This Island” more than adequately fill the stage at Vista’s Moonlight Amphitheatre. The production is the first of the 2021 season and the first since the theater was shuttered in the summer of 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The June 16 opening night came only a day after Gov. Gavin Newsom declared that California is open for business-as-usual and most restrictions for gatherings are lifted. Before the curtain went up, Steve Glaudini, producing artistic director, thanked the audience and all those responsible for the survival of Moonlight Stage Productions and announced the coming productions for both this and the 2022 season. Making this 2021 season a reality was more complicated than just postponing the 2020 season. It was necessary to find shows that cost less to stage because of reduced audiences, so the 2020 season was shifted to 2022, and a totally new roster was created for this summer. But that was then and this is now. Opening night of “Island” saw the amphitheater about 70% full and 100% enthusiastic, with the enthusiasm flowing

both ways. Vivid song, dance and graphic effects immediately transport the audience to an unnamed island in the Caribbean with a history of French colonialism that created varying economic and social classes, racial disparity and a legacy of mixed-race peoples. Skin color and social standing combined with the moods of the gods determine one’s future and fate. Ti Moune, a darkskinned, peasant island girl, develops a forbidden love for a mixed-race, lighter-skinned, upper-class Daniel. They run in different circles, but circum-

stances designed by the gods bring them together. Ti Moune saves Daniel’s life and events unfold from there. The well-seasoned cast of 11 are individually versatile and strong in both song and dance, but together, their harmonies are haunting and exquisite, and dance sequences contagious. Even Maya Washington, who plays Little Ti Moune, belts out a few solo bars that demonstrate that she has no trouble keeping up with her older cast members. The colorful, artistic works of various styles projected on a rear screen are

highly effective in creating multiple mood and location changes. The design team – Stephen Gifford (scenic), Jennifer Edwards (lighting), Jim Zadai (sound) and Blake McCarty (projections) – makes transitions seamless. Music director and conductor Lyndon Pugeda creates a genuinely exuberant Caribbean atmosphere, and costumes that sometimes include sequins and feathers of blazing colors make ensemble numbers eye-popping. Originally a one-act play, this production has a 15-minute intermission, taken at an appropriate time in the action. Though “Island” is G-rated, the themes of colonialism, relationships, racism, economic disparity and a few sexual references make this story inappropriate for younger children. “Once on This Island” runs through July 3. Visit Moonlight Stage (www. moonlightstage.com) or call 760-724-2110.

ESCONDIDO — The City of Escondido, along with San Marcos and Vista, are in the process of conducting a feasibility study to determine if a Community Choice Energy (CCE) program would be financially viable. CCE, also known as Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), is an alternative to traditional investor owned utilities such as SDG&E. CCEs purchase power on behalf of its customers with the goal to lower costs, allow consumers greater control of their energy mix and offer a cleaner power supply to satisfy community priorities. Assembly Bill 117 allows local governments the authority to form CCEs. The city partnered with San Marcos and Vista to explore the pros and cons of multiple governance options to determine appropriate governance structures and identify potential third-party alliances. “What makes this process a little unique is that it's kind of formed jointly between the cities of Vista, San Marcos and Escondido, so we all have to be kind of comfortable with the methodology and the conclusions of the report,” said Mike Strong, Escondido’s community development director. “It's taken considerably longer than I think we all anticipated.” The study is part of

the city’s updated Climate Action Pan, which was approved last month. The CCE would be part of the effort to meet the city’s 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target. “Assumptions were to get to 90% clean energy by the year 2030, which aligns with the City of Vista’s Climate Action Plan goals, but does not align with San Marcos Escondido,” Strong said. “San Marcos has a 95% clean energy goal by 2030, and Escondido has 100% goal based on the adopted Climate Action Plans.” He added that, because of these types of discrepancies that still need to be finalized, the report is not able to be released just yet. The study was commissioned back in 2019 and, according to Strong, city staff should be completing the study and presenting it to the council by the end of April. Once the study is complete, each respective city will be asked to receive and file the report. This will likely happen sometime in May. If any of the cities are interested in pursuing CCE/CCA further, they would then explore the governance options introduced in the feasibility study. The city would then release a Request for Interest (RFI) to gather information from other potential city partners in forming a CCE.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

Proud to be an American! “Never settle for less –because there is no substitute for quality.” – John Haedrich, Butcher

Happy 4th of July from Big John and his staff

“This 4th of July,” Big John says, “it is an honor to remember our independence and the beginning of the United States on this date, and also to reflect on how far we have come. This time is especially important to me as it is also the birthdate of my beloved mother and marks the time the American Army occupied my town in East Berlin and freed us from the tyranny of The National Socialistic Communist party between April 12 and July 4, 1945. They restored order and freedom and turned over the territory to the Russians. I made a quick exodus to West Berlin, and then came to America in 1959 to enjoy the freedom and peace of this country. My past keeps me keenly aware of how wonderful our country is and how hard we have fought for our freedom. With a deep gratitude in remembering my past and the freedom we

Dawes Arboretum a portrait of Ohio’s bountiful fauna hit the road e’louise ondash

I

t’s was a dramatic but perhaps largely unknown moment in Ohio’s history. The year: 1802, just before the state is admitted to the Union. The territory’s delegates gather to draft a constitution. The issue: Will Ohio be a free or slave state? Delegates were split evenly. County Judge Ephraim Cutler (17671853), a committed abolitionist, is too ill to come to the convention. But when he learns that the vote is tied, Cutler instructs two friends to carry him to the meeting, where he casts the vote that breaks the tie. We learn this story in the small History House at the nearly 2,000-acre Dawes Arboretum in Newark (Licking County), Ohio, formerly the farm of Beman Dawes. The native Ohioan made his fortune in the gas and petroleum industry and eventually donated his farm to a foundation that cares for the farm and arboretum today. How are Cutler and this history-changing vote connected to the arboretum? “Cutler was Beman Dawes’ great-grandfather,” explains Leslie Wagner, arboretum historian who curated the current exhibit that features artwork and other artifacts from the Dawes’ family. “He’s the reason Ohio was a free state.” Compelling, for sure,

and now it’s time to explore some of the arboretum’s 12 miles of hiking trails and four-mile driving route. Immediately obvious is the big picture: Sumptuous, verdant countryside that seems to roll on forever. One of the small pictures: Dogwood trees, so laden with white blossoms that they form solid white canopies. Unlike our Western dogwoods, these sprout their leaves first, then the blossoms. Adding whimsy to the varied landscape is “Ribbit the Exhibit,” 24 human-size, copper-sculpted-a nd-polych rome - covered frog sculptures by artist Andy Cobb. The mischievous amphibians are scattered along the Japanese Garden and Parkwood trails, playing musical instruments, dancing, riding a bicycle, gardening and, of course, engaging in a game of leapfrog. Along the same trail are the whirling, twirling, kinetic wind sculptures of Lynn Whitaker. Not to miss is the singular surprise called the Hedge Letters, which spell out “Dawes Arboretum” in 7- to 8-foot-high hedges, at the southern end of the property. The 2,040-foot hedge, which can clearly be seen on Google Maps, was first planted in the 1930s and 1940s because Dawes wanted pilots to know that they were flying over the arboretum. This “organic billboard” eventually got so unruly that the hedges were replaced in 1990. Short of a fly-by in an airplane or a drone, the best way to see a portion of the letters and get a sense of their enormity is to climb the nearby 36-foot-high observation tower. Other features of the

Sir Charles is an incredibly handsome kitty who is looking for love. This 14-monthold boy loves nothing more than to cuddle up to new friends and get their undivided attention.

The first two weeks of April are really popular because of the cherry blossoms. They want those photos.” Like hotels and restaurants nationwide, Cherry Valley Hotel had to modify services during the COVID-19 pandemic. But as more people get vaccinated and travel increases, the hotel anticipates the opening of a new bar/beer-tasting room (Licking County’s Ale Trail now boasts 11 brewWITHOUT AN airplane or drone, it’s difficult to view the entire set of Hedge Letters at the eries); live music in the Dawes Arboretum in Licking County, Ohio.

Rico’s Rocky Mountains road trip to Colorado and Utah taste of wine frank mangio

W

ith Covid-19 waning and the country reopening, it was time for a road trip to two of my favorite places in the United States – Beaver Creek, Colorado, and Springdale, Utah (bordering Zion National Park). With a full tank of gas and my wife ready for co-pilot duties, all I needed was a green light from Senior Editor Frank for this week’s column and I was off! I will cover a pair of fine dining Italian ristorantes and two restaurants with breathtaking views. First is Zino’s Ristorante in Edwards, Colorado, a few miles from Beavercreek and run by GM Adam Salvaggio and Owner/Exec Chef Nick Haley, an amazingly talented culinary expert who could be a celebrity chef with his passion for food excellence, creativity, and personality. Chef Nick personally prepared and presented

items from each section of the menu including some new ones that will debut in the summer menu that launches June 22. Chef Nick spoiled us with the Mais Neapolitan-style pizza with Olathe sweet corn, homemade pancetta, caramelized onions, lemon Panna, Mitica cheese and tarragon. This was one of the best

pizzas I have ever experienced! Other highlights included the gnudi - roasted beet and goat cheese “gnocchi" with heirloom tomatoes, garlic, crispy kale and shaved parmesan. This was light in texture and beautiful in color. Also, the Burrata Ravioli shown above is updated for the summer menu with bay scallops, manila clams,

shrimp, lobster butter sauce and hints of lemon along with a homemade ricotta cheese filling. "My goal is traditional classics with my own style using farm-to-table and local abundance food sources such as the pancetta made on-premise,” Chef Nick said. With dinner I enjoyed the 2018 Cerbaiona Rosso

di Montalcino and Vietti Nebbiolo Langhe Perbacco. “The new summer menu features an easier to understand and more intuitive beverage menu,” Salvaggio said during dinner. Thank you, Chef Nick and Adam, for an amazing evening. Zino’s is a must for anyone in the Beaver Creek area! See zinoristorante.com. With the following accolades, AAA Four Diamond Award for 25 years, Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, OpenTable Diner’s Choice and Beaver Creek #1 Restaurant Rated By Trip Advisor, Grouse Mountain Grill (GMG) in Beavercreek, Colorado, is an easy fine dining choice. GM Daniel Schoenfelder sat us at the best table in the restaurant with a breathtaking view of Beaver Creek Mountain and beautiful green trees vs. a bustling winter ski resort. Exec Chef Anthony Ferrozzo prepared a mouthwatering pan-seared Alaskan halibut served with a corn and fava bean succotash, handmade gnocchi and carrot lobster jus. Chef Tony shared a sample of the to-die-for Olathe Corn Soup. I highly recommend checking out GMG and having both the corn soup

appetizer and halibut. See grousemountaingrill.com. Our road trip column concludes with King’s Landing Bistro (KLB) also in Springdale, which offers the best view of the Watchman Mtns from its quaint and romantic patio seating area. It is worth going to KLB even for a glass of wine and an appetizer to savor this view and enjoy the farmto-table seasonal menu. KLB is owned and operated by husband and wife chef team Thomas King and Phu Nguyen. I had a 14-ounce Creekstone Farms Duroc Pork Porterhouse served with roasted cauliflower, brussels sprouts, bacon lardons, seasonal chutney and basil along with a J Lohr7 Oaks Cab Sauv. This was a great dinner pairing! Details at klbzion.com. I highly recommend dining at all these restaurants when in Beaver Creek or Springdale.

O’side’s Black Plague celebrates four years, new site cheers! north county

ryan woldt

W

e are back In the Moment this week with Jarred Doss, co-founder and CEO of Black Plague Brewing Company in Oceanside. The North County brewery just celebrated its fourth anniversary and has been establishing its local bona fides from the beginning. Reaching out to Black Plague felt a little cathartic, and after this interview, I might be ready to go out into the world for a beer. CHEERS!: Hey Jarred, thanks for catching me up on what’s going on at Black Plague. It’s been more than a year of this pandemic, shifting hospitality expectations and some truly world-changing events. What is the physical, emotional and overall status of your company and team right now? And how did you manage it over the past year? Jarred: At first, we all had a bit of disbelief that we were actually experiencing a global pandemic given all the various opinions being shared in mainstream media at that time. Once it became clear that restrictions and statewide mandates were being rolled out and that it was seriously going to change the way that we did things, the reality sunk in and caused some anxiety across the entire team. We just had an allhands meeting at the start of 2020 discussing ambitious plans for growth and opportunities for expansion. Those plans changed drastically. Not knowing

what the future holds—in a time when we had just set such lofty goals—really affected the team in a way that we could never have foreseen. We found it tragically ironic how relevant our brand name became in 2020. Although, it has worked out to our advantage that our dark sense of humor helped many of our fans and followers to cope with the stress of quarantine. We pivoted our taproom team to run a to-go sales booth out of the front door and immediately began to sell packaged beer directly online for delivery or pickup. Production shifted almost entirely to packaged beer (6-packs). The team’s spirits lifted during summer when we had a short duration of indoor operation at limited capacity. However, having to pivot back to outside-only dining kept everyone on their toes. Essentially, everyone rallied and we finished the year strong and maintained morale by having regular meetings to address everyone’s concerns, questions, etc. Luckily, we never had any covid outbreaks at our brewery and taproom due to our intense sanitation and social distancing practices. We are finally getting back to executing our original plans of expanding into a 2nd tasting room down in San Diego and finishing construction of our second cellar to add more fermenting vessels for more territory growth. CHEERS!: For someone who isn’t familiar with Black Plague’s ethos, will you explain the theme or vibe, and how that translates into the beer? Jarred: The brand theme is based on the Dark Ages — which means the

BLACK PLAGUE Brewing Company teamed up with Burgeon Beer Company to craft “Circle of Life,” a pale ale made iwth Strata, Mosaic Cryo and Simcoe hops to celebrate its fourth

taproom has a gothic cathedral vibe with a 20-foot guillotine, his-n-hers coffins, large communal tables and a 40-foot bar to allow for people to get up close and personal with the taproom team. At Black Plague Brewing, we are working to create a better life by pouring our heart and soul into everything we create. Black Plague Brewing was born from the idea that beer makes friends, brings people together, and breaks down barriers that keep us segregated. History has proven that a small group of people can band together around a single purpose and create incredible change throughout the world. We believe that regardless of your creed, color, race, background, or walk of life, you can join us to spread good times with great beer.

The Dark Ages were a time of upheaval marked by the death of culture, science, and the arts. Much of the world’s written history and greatest advancements were lost after the fall of the Roman Empire. Without the knowledge and technology to fight death and disease, society began to crumble under the chaos of a global pandemic. It would be centuries before a hero would emerge to help rebuild what was lost. The Plague Doctor arose as a means to combat the struggle for survival and give hope to communities that life could be better. At Black Plague Brewing, we believe that the Plague Doctor represents a sign of new hope and community. Plague Doctors are often depicted in iconic costumes and seen as a symbol of death and disease. However, they were

misunderstood; they were harbingers of new beginnings as they were the first line of defense against an unknown enemy (disease, bacteria, viruses). Coincidentally, the art of brewing beer is very similar in that a lot of award-winning recipes are found through experimentation and trying new things. There are so many parallels between serving the public as a Plague Doctor and brewing delicious beer as a Brewmaster. You can see more about our ethos [on our website]. CHEERS!: As much as anyone can plan after last year, what does the near future (2021) for Black Plague look like? Jarred: We are eager and excited to open the second taproom in the San Diego area. We had plans to do that back in 2020 and now the opportunity has

presented itself again. In addition to another location, we have just finished construction of our 2nd cellar at our HQ location. This will ultimately allow us to have an annual production capacity of 20,000 barrels when it’s fully up and running. We are aggressively pursuing distribution opportunities in several key markets in the southwest region, and some midwest states. We participated in a “guest brewer” program that allowed us to send our beer out to several states and it quickly sold out with a cry for more beer. So we are actively working to fulfill the demand at this point. We are also expanding our merchandise and apparel, so look out for more interesting drops over the next few months. CHEERS!: Let’s talk beer. Is there anything coming out that your team is particularly excited about or proud of? Jarred: We are very excited about our 4th-anniversary beer brewed in collaboration with Burgeon Beer Company. It is an amazingly fresh Pale Ale full of Strata, Mosaic Cryo, and Simcoe hops. You’ll be spellbound by aromas of passionfruit, citrus oils, blueberry, apricot, strawberry, and hints of peach. Through a combined effort of dark arts and alchemy, this medium-bodied beer is enchantingly bright and crisp, leaving you with a refreshing sense of new life. In addition to that, we are proud of our collaboration with the legendary Tony Hawk to create Tony Hawps IPA, an incredibly smooth West Coast IPA full of juicy hop flavors and low bitterness. We also have several new beers crafted by our head brewer, Aeryk Heeg, for your tastebuds to TURN TO CHEERS ON 14

Summer F un & Opportunities

Three great reasons to start taking music lessons 1. REDUCES STRESS Scientists are now agreeing that learning a musical instrument could be the best way to give your brain a total body workout at any age. Did you also know that it reduces stress too? Music has been shown to reduce stress by triggering biochemical stress reducers according to an article in U.S. Today. As a short-term and long-term benefit, music helps us to relax and forget about life’s daily challenges. The act of playing music accentuates

deep relaxation and calm. 2. IMPROVES MEMORY Taking music lessons has shown increased brain development and also helped improved memory over a year when compared to those who do not receive musical training. Research has also shown that as we get older, our natural memory ability diminishes and music has been shown to help that considerably. 3. MUSIC BRINGS JOY! Quite simply... playing music is fun!

Einstein used to play the violin to relax when he became stuck in his thought process – music helps clear the mind and calm the nerves. It is the gift that keeps on giving. So call your local music school and sign up for lessons! You are never too old to play. Keep asking yourself what instrument have YOU always wanted to play? You might find your music goal reachable with just a phone call away! To learn more, please visit leadingnotestudios. com.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A misunderstanding is easily cleared up. Then go ahead and enjoy some fun and games this week. A Libra might have ideas that merit serious consideration for the future.
