Author Talk guest Mayes’ latest is another love letter to Italy By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — On April 16, the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild in partnership with Warwick’s, welcomed prolific author Frances Mayes to speak at its Author Talk Series regarding her newest work. The talk was held at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Mayes’ latest novel is again a love letter to Italy. Many know Mayes from her book “Under the Tuscan Sun,” which was adapted into a screenplay and released in 2003. She has authored numerous books, and several are dedicated to Ita-

ly. Her seventh is titled “See You in the Piazza.” Born and raised in Fitzgerald, Georgia, Mayes knew there was a bigger world than her hometown when she connected her love of travel from the books she read at her local library. When Mayes visited Italy many years ago, the Renaissance architecture and art was an immediate draw, but other characteristics surfaced such as the vivacity of

Italian life. “That’s the reason I kept returning — I still love the art, architecture and so forth, but it’s the people that animate the place in such a special way,” Mayes said. “It’s amazing to me how even in places with tons of tourists, they (Italians) often really maintain their humanism and I found that really all over Italy — it’s still such a deeply humanistic country — I’ve always gone back whenever I could be-

cause it makes sense.” Her passion for Italy triggered a home purchase in 1990 in Bramasole, Tuscany, based on her novel, “Under the Tuscan Sun.” Conversely, “See You in the Piazza” unveils unique hidden places in Italy which are, for the most part in plain sight, but with a particular genesis in Puglia, Mayes said. “My husband Ed and I were on a trip down there, and we were absolutely loving the tiny towns that we FRANCES MAYES spoke April didn’t even intend to go to 16 at the RSF Golf Club about TURN TO AUTHOR ON 13

ENCINITAS — A Superior Court judge has reinstated the probation of a woman who falsely accused former State Assembly candidate Phil Graham of sexual misconduct, giving her a second chance to comply with the requirements. Nichole Burgan was sentenced in February to two days in county jail and three years probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of filing a false report with the Sheriff’s Department in connection to her allegations against Graham. Her sentence included a 90-day jail term that was stayed pending completion of her probation, $655 fine, 10 days public works service and a mental health evaluation. Earlier this week, a different judge ruled that Burgan has already violated the terms of her probation and scheduled an evidentiary hearing April 19 to determine if Burgan will go to jail for the full 90 days. At Friday’s hearing, it was revealed that Burgan had only completed half of her two-day sentence and had not started the process of her mental health evaluation with the County Department of Behavioral Health Services. Burgan, according to her attorney, said she hadn’t started the evaluation because she hadn’t received the paperwork from the public defender’s office. TURN TO ACCUSER ON 19

Housing Element approval no later than June, officials say By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Encinitas is hoping that its affordable housing plan will be fully certified by June, officials said last week. State Housing Element law requires cities to provide enough housing to meet the needs of all its residents, from very-low income earners to above-moderate ones. Encinitas is the only city in San Diego County that lacks a state-certified plan and was under a court order to enact one by April 11. The city has been sub-

ject to multiple lawsuits, by both the building industry and affordable housing advocates, because of its lack of a housing element. Voters rejected the city’s most recent attempts at passing a housing plan in 2016 and 2018, which prompted a judge to give the city 120 days to adopt a plan. The city, which adopted a long-awaited housing element in March, still has several steps before the document — which the state requires — can be certified. First, it must receive approval from the state De-

partment of Housing and Community Development. Second, the California Coastal Commission must sign off on it. The city is due back in Superior Court May 1 to deliver a report on the city’s progress toward certifying the housing plan. State housing officials confirmed they had received the plan and were reviewing it. “The statutory due date for HCD’s response is June 13, 2019,” HCD spokeswoman Alicia Murillo said in an email responding to questions from The Coast News.

“The city has requested an expedited review as they must provide a report of their progress to the court on May 1, 2019.” The city anticipates completing these steps no later than June 2019, Encinitas Development Services Director Brenda Wisneski said. The council unanimously adopted the second reading of its plan at its March 27 meeting. It includes several controversial recommendations from state housing department officials, including: • Raising the maximum

building heights from 33 feet for a flat roof and 37 feet for a pitched roof to 35 feet and 39 feet, respectively. • Changing where building heights are measured from. • The inclusion of parking lots, driveways and drive aisles in calculating the project’s density — which could result in additional “bonus” housing. • Eliminating sections from the city code aimed at requiring developers who propose super-dense projects to conform to the surrounding neighborhood and

provide public benefits beyond the statutory requirements. • The elimination of any subjective language from the update. “HCD directed that all standards must be objective in nature, containing no subjectivity,” according to the staff report. Several community stalwarts oppose the plan, which they said is a giveaway to developers and select landowners and also that the plan invalidates a city law that gives the public the right to vote on it and future housing elements.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The 2019 Art of Fashion Committee is moving full speed ahead with its Sept. 12 fundraiser with co-chairs Erika Fetter and Elaine Becerra leading the way. The 64th annual Art of Fashion at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe showcases top designer fashions on the catwalk followed by a luncheon and boutique shopping on the inn’s expansive lawn. This year marks the 15th time that The Country Friends has partnered with South Coast Plaza for the event. “The Country Friends has been doing this (Art of Fashion) for a very long time, and what’s really exciting for Erika and I is that we can take something so strong already and take this event to the next level,” Becerra said. “So, we brought in some new people, and our main goal is to bring in the most amount of money while spending the least amount of money.” Fetter said she has been attending the annual fashion show for many years. She said to be leading such a fantastic team has been an invaluable experience. “We can’t wait to raise a ton of funds so we can give back to the community,” Fetter said. Headquartered in Rancho Santa Fe, The Country Friends has funded more than $16 million to local organizations. The Art of Fashion is one of its largest fundraisers of the year. Fetter said what makes The Country Friends so special is that the nonprofit chooses a variety of organizations to fund every year and is very specific to the needs of the community. “We have long-standing relationships with many of the charity groups that we donate to, and we can dive deeply into the details of the organization,” she said. The Country Friends funds organizations based on projects and how they will make a positive impact in the San Diego Community. Becerra said guests for the Art of Fashion can expect the same wonderful event beginning with a champagne reception upon

arrival, beautiful designs on the runway, upscale boutique shopping and a delicious luncheon. Both co-chairs want to remind individuals, families and businesses that sponsorship opportunities are ideal for the demographic in attendance. “Sponsoring is extremely important because it motivates other people to do the same and it shows that there are wonderful ways to help make a difference in the community,” Becerra said. While Becerra and Fetter admit they work well together, they also highlighted their dedicated committee who volunteer their time to make The Art of Fashion a success. The committee’s diligent work to put an event of this magnitude is incredible, they said. Becerra said that the Art of Fashion is such an impressive event that when someone attends, they get hooked and people naturally start attending the other events hosted by The Country Friends throughout the year. “There is no better way to do something good for people and also have fun at the same time,” Becerra said.

RSF Garden Club coffee draws a crowd By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — A manicured garden, panoramic views, hors d'oeuvres and mimosas set the scene at The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club’s Coffee in the Garden. The April 8 event was held at the private estate of Kate Marbles in Cielo, the coastal community of Rancho Santa Fe. As guests arrived, they were greeted by Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club Executive Director Thora Guthrie. From there, they passed a crystal-clear koi pond into a one-of-a-kind estate brimming with oldworld charm with soaring ceilings and classic stonework. More than 380 people attended including garden club members and those seriously interested in becoming future members. “This home is so luxurious that it’s such a special opportunity for our members to be in a home and garden like this,” Guthrie said. Guthrie said in addition to viewing the estate, Coffee in the Garden also offered an opportunity for members to socialize in an extraordinary setting. “Members had a wonderful time hearing about Kate Marbles' home including how it took nearly eight years to build as well as the gorgeous ocean views on a clear day,” she said. “This event really creates a sense of com-

In the intimacy of someone’s garden, we get to not only enjoy the beauty of nature, but we get to socialize and make new friends.” Falzon described the Cielo estate as an amazing treat in every way possible from architecture, ambiance, décor, views and more. Guthrie pointed out that there is so much going on at the club from outings and more. “The demographics of the club has changed in a big way with 60-plus new members in the past several months,” she said. Guthrie is quick to point out that the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club also supports the community. She explained how the increase in events, programs and field trips is drawing members to join and become involved. “But our philanthropy is really attracting support for membership,” she said. “The fact that we are giving out $100,000 in grants to local nonprofit organizations this year is a definite source of pride among our members.” To learn more about The Garden Club including its upcoming Architecture in Bloom on May 11, visit www.rsfgardenclub. org.

Bill would spur removal of spent fuel By Samantha Taylor

REGION — After touring the decommissioning San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), U.S. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) announced he is introducing a bill that would prioritize the disposal of spent nuclear fuel currently being stored at the beachfront facility. Levin toured the facility along with fellow U.S. Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach) and retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Len Hering, who was appointed to Levin’s task force addressing “safety challenges” at SONGS earlier this year. During a press conference after the tour, Levin said he “appreciates” the work Southern California Edison has done to address the flaws that allowed for the August 2018 incident when a full canister of spent fuel became stuck as it was being lowered into storage, hanging 18 feet in the air for nearly an hour. In March, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a final enforcement decision to Edison, imposing a $116,000 civil penalty for two violations of federal requirements. Still, Levin “remains convinced” that the commission needs stronger overTURN TO BILL ON 5

When will fire disaster buck-passing stop in state?


Yes vote best way to ensure senior facility is done right By Dave Roberts

From my many years serving on both the Solana Beach City Council and the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, I learned that making land use decisions is tough. When 62 percent of voters approved Proposition T in 2000, it gave all voters in Solana Beach a voice in making changes to land uses. This means that a majority of voters will have to support the direction for land use changes proposed within the city. From my many conversations with residents and from attending two community forums, I think most of us can agree that quality, safe senior care is strongly needed in Solana Beach due to the increasing number of seniors in the coming decades. We also have limited undeveloped parcels of land. Currently, voters are being asked to vote yes or no on changing the land use for a 2-plus acre parcel east of I-5 that has been vacant for years and has been an eyesore on our community. If passed, this vote will

allow a local developer to propose to the City Council a senior care facility for a site that provides a perfect transition between pure residential and pure commercial zoning, at the edge of a single family home residential neighborhood (not in it). Like the Timbers Building next door, this proposed project would also provide a good buffer to the noise of the freeway. Should the proposed project advance to the City Council, the city of Solana Beach engineers will require the developer to make necessary changes to the two roads leading into the facility (Marine View and Genevieve) to ensure safety of new seniors, staff, and existing neighborhood residents, as they do for any new development. There are always some who oppose new development. A few neighbors say they really like the proposed facility, just not in their neighborhood. I would point out that Prop T says that a vote of the people would NOT be required to change zoning in order to

meet state mandates, such as low income affordable apartments. Thus, if this vote fails, a developer could propose a project to the City Council without a public vote and the project could be much more intrusive on the neighborhood. I hope voters will consider all the facts on this proposal and understand that Prop T was implemented to allow all (not just those in the immediate neighborhood) city voters to decide (with the entire process funded by the developer per law) on major land use changes. I think then they will agree that this project offers many enhancements (sound barrier, quality care, road improvements, increased tax revenue, jobs) for Solana Beach and can be conditioned by the City Council to mitigate any local neighbors’ concerns. Dave Roberts formerly served on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, representing the Third District, which includes Solana Beach


Getting rid of fossil fuels will help the economy We often hear that moving away from fossil fuels will hurt the economy. A recent study by Scripps Oceanography finds that phasing out fossil fuels could save 3.6 million lives per year. This contrasts significantly with this assumption, if we view human lives, health and productivity as part of economic growth.

This study concludes that using sustainable energy not only reduces pollution and extreme weather, but greatly benefits human health and “will pay for itself with those savings.” If we value health, fossil fuel emissions can be viewed as detrimental to us, our children, our grandchildren. The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act

(HR 763) recently introduced in the House of Representatives, endorses a fee on carbon to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels with a return of those fees as dividends to households. Ask your representatives to endorse this legislation to save lives and help the economy. Susan Kobara Carlsbad

ne unspoken concept was conspicuously missing the other day, when Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a wildfire mitigation plan he had loudly touted: responsibility. Instead, there were multiple forms of passing the buck. The Newsom-spurred plan has at least three prongs. Even though he didn’t quite endorse them, the governor wants the proposals acted on long before the next potentially massive wildfire season arrives in summer and early fall. One plan element would see some mitigation of liability for utility companies when their electric lines start fires, especially if the companies are not found at fault. Another envisions a new state wildfire fund created with state money and funds from utility customers statewide, with needy fire victims somehow able to benefit. A third would let insurance companies refuse to sell policies in fire areas or charge more there. It’s fair to sum up these three plan portions as two bailouts and a license to gouge. Incentives are also recommended for utilities switching to renewable energy sources faster than now required, hopefully reducing the climate change that helped the swift spread of disastrously huge fires in 2017 and 2018. One group that could benefit from all this: The victims, even though most knew or should have known just what they were getting into. The biggest blazes of the last two years occurred in or near areas that have burned before. People living there had every reason to know the dangers they faced. Wrote one local colum-

california focus thomas d. elias nist in a fire area: “I told (my wife), ‘This neighborhood is going to burn to the ground someday.’ We bought the house anyway.” But the proposed plan would have taxpayers and utility customers who deliberately refuse to live in fire-prone areas share the cost when homes there burn. Already, prices for everyone’s property insurance tend to climb when insurers make multibillion-dollar payoffs on existing policies. That’s just one feature of the Newsom task force plan for a wildfire disaster fund. But why should taxpayers in historically safe areas pay into this? Newsom’s response is that “We’re all in this together …” But he doesn’t explain why that should be true for folks who deliberately avoid fire areas. They don’t live in lovely forests, with scenic streams and gullies and thick woods, sweeping mountain views or ocean vistas. Reporters who visit just-burned fire areas often hear residents say something like this in virtually every fire-prone part of California: “We love the lifestyle and the ambience here and we won’t be driven out by any disaster.” Most taxpayers and utility customers get neither those vistas nor their ambiance. Why should they subsidize a lifestyle they don’t have and usually can’t afford? If people voluntarily help homeowning fire victims, that’s admirable, but why use tax dollars? Deploying tax money

after earthquakes and hurricanes is very different, since they can hit almost anywhere and can’t with any certainty be avoided like fire areas. Then there’s the Newsom task force approach to the big privately owned utilities, Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric: A suggested lessening of their liabilities in big fires. All have lately been found at fault or admitted fault in fires. Legislators last year refused to let them completely off the hook, and likely also won’t this year. Instead, lawmakers should clear the way for relatively new publicly owned Community Choice Aggregation electric providers to buy up transmission lines and other equipment, so long as they maintain it safely. Existing utilities could use money from this to pay for damage they caused. Newsom said “No single stakeholder created this crisis, and no single stakeholder should bear its full cost.” He called for costs to be shared by, among others, local governments (read: taxpayers) and utility ratepayers in general. But while no single group created the crisis, plenty of taxpayers and utility customers deliberately avoid fire danger. Newsom didn’t adequately or credibly explain why they should pay. In a way, this scene stems from today’s societal reluctance to hold individuals and companies responsible for their actions and behavior. But passing the buck eventually stops somewhere, sometime, and California might now be at one of those seminal moments. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

“Powerful bipartisan opposition to offshore drilling continues to grow nationwide thanks to Californians of all walks of life and across the political spectrum who are opposed (to offshore drilling).” — Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear

“The military drives the San Diego economy with $26 billion of direct spending and creates 340,000 jobs here in our region. I do not wish to put more oil and gas drilling personnel and jeopardize San Diego’s economy.” — Supervisor Jim Desmond

“There is no benefit for the Southern California coast to have offshore oil platforms. This issue has united us in an effort to stop that from happening.” — Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss

“We have got to get ourselves off the fossil fuel economy. It’s time for us to look at only renewable sources of energy” — Del Mar Mayor Dave Druker

“We already have 27 oil platforms off the California coast. Adding more would only increase the likelihood of a spill.” — Supervisor Kristin Gaspar

“Every single East and West Coast governor of all parties have voiced strong opposition to these new federal drilling plans.” — San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones

Local officials gather to oppose offshore drilling By Jordan P. Ingram

made me proud to live in a place where the leaders we elected are so connected to the coastline.” Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, who helped the city adopt an offshore drilling resolution on Jan. 24, 2018, said President Donald Trump’s idea of expanding offshore drilling is “absolutely the wrong direction.” “We need to be reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, not increasing it,” Blakespear said. “Locally, our prosperity is based on having a clean coast. And this would unquestionably create a dirty coast.” For the past several months, Bradshaw and others have attended city council meetings across the county to encourage local leaders to publicly oppose a Jan. 4 proposal by former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to develop the National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and

Gas Leasing Program (National OCS Program). The federal program seeks to significantly expand oil and gas exploration and development by approving 47 lease sales — the largest number of lease sales in U.S. history — including seven new leases along the California coastline. Additional leases would allow drilling access to nearly the entire U.S. outer continental shelf, making “more than 98 percent of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources in federal offshore areas available to consider for future exploration and development,” according to a department release. Since Zinke’s announcement, Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano), who serves as a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, has cosponsored two bills in Congress — West

Coast Ocean Protection Act (HR 310) and California Clean Coast Act (HR 279) — that would effectively ban offshore drilling on the West Coast and in California, respectively. Bradshaw said that many state and federal leaders who were not invited to the press conference remain adamant in their opposition. “Congressman Mike Levin, for example, is one of the leading members of Congress taking this fight to Washington, D.C. and he has not let up since coming into office,” Bradshaw said. At the municipal level, several North County cities adopted resolutions opposing offshore drilling, including inland cities Escondido and Vista, and more than 90 cities have passed similar resolutions statewide. In February, the San Marcos City Council voted 3-2 to indefinitely table its

resolution after several council members expressed concerns that adopting it could lead to a “slippery slope” of future requests to pass judgements on partisan and divisive issues. Despite voting to strike the proposal, San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones attended Monday’s press conference to express her opposition to offshore drilling expansion. “The bipartisan opposition to offshore drilling is overwhelming,” Jones said. “Today, we are standing together to tell the Department of the Interior that our communities oppose further gas and oil drilling off our California coast.” Desmond, a former mayor of San Marcos, said that increasing oil and gas production along the coastline could disrupt military operations and jeopardize the county’s economy that relies on more

than 143,000 active-duty soldiers training, living and working in the area. “San Diego County is a military and veteran county,” Desmond said. “We want to make sure our military has the ability to train and to preserve the options they have out at sea without the effects of drilling platforms.” Desmond also encouraged residents to say ‘no’ to offshore drilling expansion. “Let me rephrase that,” Desmond said. “Hell no.” The Board of Supervisors sent a letter on March 9, 2018, urging President Donald Trump to “reject any proposal that would allow an expansion of offshore oil drilling in the coastal waters off of the State of California.” National City and Coronado are the only coastal cities in San Diego County that haven’t passed an offshore drilling resolution.


density around the facilities. Levin noted that there are 8.3 million people living within a 50-mile radius of the SONGS facility. The final criteria would look at the potential earthquake risk at these facilities. Levin noted there are two active faults and “a network of” inactive faults near SONGS. According to Levin, the bill would prioritize sites that are at highest risk under the three criteria. “I don’t think there is any other site in the United States that has the seismic risk, the population density and is a decommissioned or decommissioning site,” he said about SONGS. “I’m fairly certainly that we’re the only site quite like it.” Levin noted the Diablo Canyon Power Plant and other sites in California have similar seismic risks, and sites across the country

have high population density around them that could be affected in the event of a crisis. “We have both,” he said about SONGS. Both Levin and Rouda also noted sea level rise poses a risk to the beachfront SONGS facility as well. According to Levin, he and Rouda were unable to discuss the potential risks of scratching or gouging of canisters as they are lowered into storage at SONGS with facility officials. He said they plan to continue that discussion at a later date. Rouda announced his support for Levin’s bill at the press conference. “With that legislation, we will begin the process of doing what we should have done decades ago,” Rouda said. According to Rouda, the federal government has “failed” the nation by not creating a plan to remove spent

fuel from sites and store it safely somewhere else. “I think one of the most concerning things I heard today was under best case scenario, when we look at the timeline to address removing the nuclear waste from this facility and other facilities across the U.S., we are talking 10 years,” he said. Without Levin’s bill, according to the two congressmen, it could take even longer to remove and transport fuel from sites. Levin and Rouda are hopeful that the bill will gain bipartisan support in Congress. “This is an accident waiting to happen 100 times over across our country,” Rouda said. “This is not a partisan issue. These sites are located in districts that are represented by Republicans and Democrats.” In early April, Levin led

a letter with signatures from several other members of Congress, including Rouda, asking the House Appropriations Committee for $25 million in federal funding to support developing a consolidated interim storage program at the Department of Energy. The funding would also assist with site preparation and regional transportation of spent fuel. Though most of the signatures were from Democrats, Levin noted that the $25 million requested was consistent with what Energy Secretary Rick Perry has requested, adding that Perry has supported the concept of a consolidated interim storage facility being placed in his home state of Texas. Levin also wants to have another tour of SONGS with Perry as well as Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

According to Edison public information officer John Dobken, 102 of 123 canisters of spent fuel will be eligible for transportation to an interim storage facility by the end of 2020. “What the industry needs is certainty,” Dobken said. Yucca Mountain in Nevada was selected to become the nation’s permanent repository for nuclear waste in 1987. The government spent $15 billion studying the location, and the Department of Energy began pursuing a license in 2008. The Obama Administration abandoned the project a few years later due to opposition from Nevada residents and politicians. The Trump administration and other Congress leaders favor reviving the Yucca Mountain plan, with the administration proposing $120 million to revive the project this fiscal year.

ENCINITAS — A group of delegates from across San Diego County gathered on Monday, April 15, at Moonlight State Beach to voice their opposition to the Trump administration’s proposal to expand offshore drilling operations along the California coastline. The bipartisan event, hosted by nonprofit marine conservation group Oceana, received overwhelming support from Supervisors Jim Desmond and Kristin Gaspar, as well as mayors and council members from Encinitas, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Oceanside and San Marcos. “San Diego County leaders have stepped up and made it crystal clear that offshore drilling is unacceptable and they will fight it tooth and nail,” said Oceana representative Brady Bradshaw after the event. “Today


sight on SONGS. “I believe we do our community a disservice when we underestimate the risk caused by the fuel at this site, which poses unusual challenges due to its geography,” Levin said. Once Levin returns to Washington, he plans to introduce a bill that would require the Department of Energy to consider three criteria for selecting sites nationwide to remove fuel from and transport to either an interim or permanent storage facility. The first criteria would look at the operating status of the plant, with priority given to plants that are decommissioned or decommissioning, like SONGS. The second criteria would consider population

Desert Rose project gets unanimous approval By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — After more than 10 years of planning and a lawsuit that made it to the doorstep of the State Supreme Court, an Olivenhain 16-unit subdivision received the final approval needed to move forward. The Encinitas Planning Commission voted 4-0 April 18 to approve the design review for the homes and the landscaping plan for the Desert Rose development. “It takes 10 years to get 16 homes built in Encinitas, for good or ill,” said Marco Gonzalez, an attorney rep-

resenting the developer, Woodbridge Pacific Group. “Being here today to see this as the final discretionary hearing, it is a good thing, despite the fact that it took us so long to get here.” State law allows for developers to build extra, or “bonus” homes on land if one or more of the homes are earmarked for low-income residents. Encinitas residents have complained the projects alter the character of the community with oversized and super-dense units and cause other environmental woes, such as in-

creased traffic, fire hazards and damage to wetlands in the case of Desert Rose. Neighbors launched formal opposition to the project by way of a citizens group called Save Desert Rose in 2012, after it began to make its way through the approval process. After the city approved Desert Rose and the companion environmental report in 2013, Save Desert Rose filed a lawsuit against the city and developer to compel an environmental report.

favor. The developer then appealed to the Fourth District Court of Appeal, which unanimously reversed the lower court’s decision in late 2015. Save Desert Rose then filed for the state Supreme Court to review the case, but the state’s high court declined review in late January 2016. At the April 18 hearing, one of Save Desert Rose’s most active members, Julie Graboi, urged the planning commission to deny the design review, arguing that the project’s density didn’t fit the surrounding communities, and that the developer’s community character analysis included denser communities that were outside of the 500-foot radius that was to be used for the purpose of the analysis. Graboi and former Mayor Sheila Cameron also said that the project shouldn’t be approved until the developer received approval from the City of Carlsbad to connect a trail that would otherwise dead end in the project. The five feet of land needed to connect the Encinitas and Carlsbad trails is in the Carlsbad city limits. Graboi called the trail connection “the only public benefit that was promised with this project.” Gonzalez countered, and the commission agreed, that the courts had already ruled on the project density and therefore they had no authority to alter it, and that the approval could not be contingent on the trail issue. “Your job here tonight is to assess compliance with the guidelines and consistency with the general plan,” Gonzalez said. “The density is what the density is, that has been litigated, that is done.” Gonzalez and the city both agreed to continue to negotiate with Carlsbad to connect the trails. The commission briefly discussed questions about the backyard landscaping and an invasive plant that was included in the design review, but quickly voted in favor of the application. Planning Commissioner Bruce Ehlers was absent.

Sprinting into spring


don’t believe I have seen a child walk through the library in two weeks. That is to say, they hurtle through at top speed. I protest. I holler. I plead, to no avail. Spring has sprung and whatever signal goes off inside of us when the weather turns mild, is loudly ringing inside every kid between 5 and 25. I suspect some of the younger teachers would like to run, too. I actually view this time of the year with a hidden smile. I love watching the youngsters start to gambol like new lambs. The older ones gather in small, all-girl or all-boy groups to whisper and giggle as they sneak looks at, or occasionally chase, each other. It is also the time of year when the boys compete to see who can leap up and touch to top of the library door. And now, in the 21st century, it is a time of equal exhibitions of girl power. I needed to rearrange some rather large bookcases in the school’s library. I thought about waiting until some willing grown-ups were at hand, but waiting is not my favorite thing. So, when a group of high-energy, adorable sixth-grade girls wandered in and asked if they could do anything to help, I decided to go with some female muscle. Worry not. I was very cautious. I had no desire to have anyone pull a muscle, female or otherwise. But these girls were amazing. They listened to what I asked, did what I told them, worked as a unit, and, by George, we moved bookcases. And they did it without breaking a sweat. I nearly broke into a Spice Girls song. I was that proud of them. I reward them with goofy stuff from the $1 store and maybe, a candy bar. They have decided that they are now my go-to muscle crew for any project I might have in the future, and I love that. It’s good to know powerful young women have my back.

Owl Club dances at historic Olivenhain town hall remembered Special to The Coast News

ENCINITAS — While Olivenhain is well known for its historic 1895 meeting hall, which is used today for town council meetings, it was once home to The Olivenhain Owl Club and used as a dance hall from 1916 until the mid-1950s. Although the Owl Club has long been disbanded, its history is rich and still remembered by many. According to Adeline and Richard Bumann, who have lived in the area since 1968, the early colonists held many dances at the meeting hall between 1895 to around 1910. In his book, “Colony Olivenhain,” Richard Bumann writes that after the turn of the century the colonists’ children discovered the pleasures of social activities and in 1903 organized the Olivenhain Owl Club. “Its primary purpose per the by-laws was simply for the mutual and social amusements of its members.” His book also states the Owl Club rented the colonists’ meeting hall for about a year and a half. But the Owl Club members wanted their own hall, which they built in 1904. The new Owl Club Hall was larger than the colonist hall. Various musicians often took to the stage for the Saturday night dances with an admission a charge of 75 cents. By 1906, the Owl Club was in serious financial trouble and the hall was about to go under foreclose. In desperation, the club rented its hall to repay some of the borrowed money and many of the club members used their own funds to keep it going, The Owl Club’s building started leaning south, and by 1911 it was abandoned from fear it would totally collapse. Without a hall of its own, the Owl Club members asked and were given permission to use the colonists meeting hall. In 1916, the Owl Club

If every person takes one small step toward being more conscientious of the environment, the collective effort will change the planet.

members dismantled their hall and with some of the used lumber constructed two rooms and a hallway on the east side of the 1895 colonist hall. The Owl Club dances from 1916 until the conclusion of World War II were very successful. After the war, attendance at the Owl Club dances began to decline.

A jukebox was purchased but failed to stir interest, dances at the Olivenhain meeting hall were simply outdated by the modern night clubs and dance halls in the area. Although the dances were sporadically held for several more years, they and the Owl club faded away in the mid 1950s. Today the meeting hall

is still standing but takes a lot of upkeep, Adeline Bumann said, and also the flooring once used heavily for dancing has been replaced twice and is due once again for renovations. Why has the main hall been able to sustain or so long? “In 1990 the Olivenhain Town Council received a grant from the state of

California to restore the meeting hall,” she said. “It’s now used for meetings, birthday parties, weddings, memorial services and the OTC uses it for all our events.” She added that the historical landmark remains special: “Because we have what we call the heart of Olivenhain, the meeting hall and grounds.”

ARCOSANTI is an experiment in sustainable urban living situated 70 miles north of Phoenix. The community hosts more than 40,000 visitors annually, and more than 8,000 have participated in workshops. Monthly arts festivals are held on the grounds. Photos by E’Louise Ondash

Experimental Arizona ‘city’ ahead of its time hit the road e’louise ondash


e can’t see the skyline of Arcosanti from the road or even from the parking lot. We find the best view is from a trail on the opposite slope across a shallow valley. From here, the futuristic concrete-paneled buildings and arches, settled among the boulders and the antithetical Italian cypresses — are more easily

visible. It’s been several decades (let’s just say it was sometime in the last millennium) since we last visited Arcosanti, an experiment in sustainable urban living founded in 1970 by Italian architect Paolo Soleri (19192013). The word “urban” might seem incongruous, since this “city” sits in the wide-open Arizona desert and has only about 70 year-round residents, but Soleri’s vision was for an eventual population of 5,000. This would be accomplished through the concept of “arcology” — the melding of architecture and ecology — which calls for cost-ef-

fective, pedestrian-friendly, dense housing surrounded by large open spaces to encourage socialization and provide easy access to the natural world. Arcosanti then and now operates on a code of reducing energy use, waste and pollution, recycling water and cultivating gardens to supply food for residents. Now nearly 50 years old, the community has accomplished some of these goals on a limited basis. While the permanent population remains tiny, the number of annual visitors has ballooned to 40,000-plus, and more than 8,000 have participated in workshops over the

years. You could say that Arcosanti is on track when it comes to its mission, which is “to explore the experiential and educational benefits of combining architecture with ecology,” explains our guide, 31-year-old Tim Bell who arrived at Arcosanti in 2017. He and his wife, whom he met at Arcosanti, live in a 1,000-square-foot apartment that features four bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, two living rooms and a balcony that overlooks the canyon. Arcosanti’s property stretches over 865 acres; 15 of the 25 proposed acres have been developed. Ironically, though Bell spent some of his formative years only an hour from Arcosanti, he didn’t learn about it until he was living in New York City. “I was attracted to the project because years of urban living left me feeling very disconnected from the natural world,” explains Bell, who has a background in theater, writing and producing. “I like that at Arcosanti I am constantly aware of my own behavior and how it might impact both the environment and the people who I share the planet with. Living (here) often feels like living in a city… where nature has been so holistically taken into account that you can't ignore its presence and value.” Bell is Arcosanti’s di-

rector of community engagement. Part of that job is raising money for the self-funded project, which is supported by its café; workshops; overnight stays in bedrooms, suites and dorms; art, music and film festivals; and donations and grants. And then there are the iconic Cosanti windbells, cast from clay and bronze in the on-site foundry. Sizes range from small to massive, and each is unique. The bells have become the symbol of Soleri, Arcosanti and its goals. “We seek to prove, through intelligent and thoughtful urban design,

that people can live in a city and have a close relationship with nature,” Bell says. Arcosanti’s board meets this spring to decide where to go from here, and Bell believes that Arcosanti’s mission will remain chiefly educational. As for his personal future, “my wife and I plan to stay for at least five years. After that, we’ll pause to reflect on if we still have value to bring the project, and if the project is still providing value for us.” For info on tours, events and stays, visit arcosanti. org.

wenty-five San Diego breweries won 71 of the 287 awards given at the 2019 Los Angeles International Beer Competition. That’s 24.7% of all awards going to San Diego breweries, including 26 of the 97 gold medals awarded (26.8%). San Diego County has 158 breweries, or about 16% of California’s approximately 980 breweries. Eight North County breweries together won 24 awards. San Diego breweries won at least one award in 54 of the 100 beer style categories in the competition. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were available in each category, but the judges decided that some categories did not have three medal-deserving beers according to competition style guidelines. Three categories added an Honorable Mention for a beer that was very close to medaling. San Diego breweries brought home 55 LAIBC awards in 2018, 60 in 2017,

and 43 in 2016. 2019 represents the best collective performance to date at this competition hosted by the LA County Fair. Especially notable results are San Diego cleansweeps of all three medals in both the Rye Beer and the American-Style Stout categories, and six medals for Deft Brewing (3 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze). Three San Diego County Pizza Port locations combined for 10 medals (5 gold, 4 silver, 1 bronze); the Pizza Port location in San Clemente (just outside the boundaries of San Diego County) added two more silver medals. Only two other breweries in the competition won 6 medals: Figueroa Mountain Brewing of Buellton (3 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze), and Garage Brewing of Temecula (1 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze). Both Figueroa and Garage are considerably older and larger than Deft. Breweries who make their home in San Diego Brewery Igniter locations did very well. Papa Marces, their Carlsbad neighbor Rouleur, and their North Park cousin Eppig won 13 awards among them (3 gold, 2 silver, 7 bronze and 1 honorable mention). The full results are available at labeercomp. com.

his is one of those “couldn’t happen to a nicer guy” announcements. San Diego Magazine coordinates all its resources annually in a comprehensive polling of “best” categories in San Diego County. According to its readers and website followers, Gianni Buonomo has been voted in as Best San Diego Winery. Taste of Wine and Food has written a number of times on this vibrant fouryear-old winery located in the Ocean Beach district of San Diego. Owner Keith Rolle caught our attention some eight years ago, after he started making his Gianni Buonomo wines in San Diego with grapes from Washington state. They were delicious high quality varietals from the get-go. Some 14 varietals are now on his wine menu and recently the awards have been rolling in. The latest win on his wine was the 2014 Charbono red. The prestigious San Francisco Chronicle competition presented this wine a Double Gold Medal. On being the top winery in San Diego, Rolle, who makes all his wines, had this to say. “With over 100 wineries in this region, I’m humbled to receive all this recognition in only our fourth year of operation. The San Diego wine scene is thriving right now and we’re excited to help bolster its growth.” On bringing in grapes from the Northwest, he stated that “the natural acidity of Washington fruit is the game changer. Up there, we’re able to get more hang time without having to worry too much about getting raisins or losing the acid. This allows for denser and more complex flavors to develop while still maintaining balance.” Congratulations to Rolle and his team at Gianni Buonomo. Visit at gbvintners.com.

ARTISTIC TRIUMPH Locals talk about their work at this weekend’s ArtWalk

By Lucia Viti

REGION — San Diego is a mecca for artistic geniuses. Fairs, shows, expos, galleries and gift shops are scattered throughout the county, boasting the mega talents of its artisans. Among the many outdoor art galas, the Mission Federal ArtWalk, held in Little Italy, is among the most prestigious. This year’s 35th annual event, April 27 and April 28, will once again feature an extraordinary collection of paintings, sculptures, photography, jewelry, metal and wood work from 350 local, regional and international artisans. “ArtWalk is an open environment that breeds creativity,” said Sandi Cottrell, director of ArtWalk San Diego. “Artists and attend-

ees are energized by its live music, dance and interactive art activities — all held in beautiful Little Italy.” North County residents Elisabeth Sullivan and father and son duo Justin and Trevor Coopersmith will be among those showcasing their masterpieces. Known for her “surrealist” dreamscapes, Sullivan, a resident of Encinitas, is excited to participate in a “great show that treats artists well.” “ArtWalk is the art show of San Diego,” she said. “ArtWalk is packed with people. I love sharing my art with so many people from all over the county.” Inspired by sky and water, Sullivan’s paintings — acrylics on canvas — are replete with blue, her fa-

vorite color. Her love of the ocean, animals — particularly birds — and Arizona’s clouds and sunsets, translates into vibrant pieces she describes as happy, peaceful, and calming. “I want my art to make people happy,” she said. “My booth is a space where people visit and leave remembering what it feels like

to be in their favorite place.” While admitting that life as a full-time artist can be financially tenuous, Sullivan is convinced that artistry remains her destiny. “I was born an artist,” she said. “I drew eyelashes on stick figures when I was 2 years old.” Through the bumps and bruises Sullivan continues to “paint what I love,” she said. “And when others connect with a vision that becomes life on canvas, it’s pretty amazing.” The Coopersmiths share a gifted DNA. The elder, a graduate of San Diego State University, began his career with

a successful airbrush and screen-printing clothing company in Hawaii. The Big Apple followed suit. While working in New York City, he was “discovered,” by a publisher who printed 200 of his photo realism paintings as posters that were marketed worldwide along with top-selling licensed products. Upon returning “home” to Carlsbad, he followed his passion — inspired by Picasso — into abstract expressionism and mixed media art. Metal, stone, copper, glass and ceramics are among the many sculptural elements added to layers of paints, oil pastels, and me-

tallic finishes. While Trevor Coopersmith jokes that “talent skips a generation,” there’s nothing untalented about either Coopersmith. “My interest in art remained dormant until a visit to Ensenada, Mexico,” he said. “A local was creating surrealistic outer space paintings using spray paint and regular household items. This aerosol grafia is a spray paint art movement. I was hooked.” Mission Federal ArtWalk crisscrosses Ash and Grape Street from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visit www.artwalksandiego.orgfor more details. Attendance is free.

It’s that kind of spontaneity in travel that really means so much to me, and we were finding it off the road in Puglia.” She said in a little tiny town, Troia, had an enormous rose window in its church right on the piazza. “You sit there, and you think of all the people since the 1100s who have sat there and looked up at that rose window,” she said. In a neighboring town, Osara, Mayes said she and her husband stumbled upon a bread oven that had been in operation since the 1500s. “They make these huge loaves of bread that weigh 10 pounds, and they throw in a handful of straw just before they put in the bread, so it browns the crust with this burning straw. It was so interesting to realize what bread means in that culture, how all over Puglia they love their bread, and they bring back these old traditions such as the gathering of orzo was what originally made the Puglian bread so good,” she said. It was these discoveries in these out-of-the-way places which fueled a sense of travel which rediscovered a sense of spontaneity that led to the creation of “See You in the Piazza.” Mayes visited and wrote about more than 50 small towns 13 regions in Italy. These included Gaeta, Torino, Trento, Asolo, Parma, Trani, Santadi, Catania and more. On her travels, she asked some of the local chefs if they would consider allowing her to use their recipes in her upcoming novel. She was pleasantly surprised when all of them agreed. “These recipes are not typical Italian recipes — they are what the chef really wanted to represent as his region and what he did with the local ingredients,” she said. “So, if you feel an interest, try some of these recipes, and I promise you’ll learn some new things.” Mayes said the end of her travels for “See You in the Piazza,” confirmed

Entrepreneurial Spirit Scientists are aghast at an eBay listing offering a rare baby T-rex fossil for a $2.95 million buy-it-now price. Fossil hunter Alan Detrich, who discovered the fossil in 2013, is believed to have created the listing in February for the 68 million-year-old artifact, which until recently had been on loan to the Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas. CNBC reported the specimen has a 15-footlong body, 21-inch skull and serrated teeth, and Detrich estimates its age at death to be about 4 years. The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology issued a statement expressing concerns that “the fossil, which represents a unique part of life’s past, may be lost from the public trust. ... Only casts and other replicas of vertebrate fossils should be traded, not the fossils themselves.” [CNBC, -- Crossville, Tennessee, 4/17/2019] police officers pulled over Sally Selby, 45, at 5 a.m. on Another Day at Walmart April 5 as she motored down -- At around 8:30 p.m. Highway 127 -- in the slow on April 10, things got in- lane -- driving a Walmart teresting at an Eau Claire, mobility scooter.

dog, Bo, according to police, and as Bo distracted shoppers and store staff, Smith pulled apart store displays, putting them in her cart. After being asked by workers to leave the store, Smith went out to the parking lot and started practicing karate moves. Bo grabbed a box of Jiffy Cornbread Muffin Mix and also attempted to leave the store. Meanwhile, Smith’s son, Benny Vann, 25, had made his way to the back of the store, where he completely undressed, exposing himself to other shoppers, and grabbed new clothes from store racks before attempting to run over police officers with his scooter. WHO TV reported Smith was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and misdemeanor bail jumping. Vann racked up charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct and retail theft. Bo, police said, received only a warning for his theft of the muffin mix. [WHO TV, 4/13/2019]

wanese woman suffered a more invasive form of irritation after participating in the Qingming Festival, or Tomb Sweeping Day, when Taiwanese people visit their families’ graves to spruce them up. The 29-year-old woman, identified by her surname, He, thought she had gotten dirt in her eye, but when the eye later swelled shut, she went to Fooyin University Hospital for help, The Washington Post reported. Hung Chiting, the hospital’s head of ophthalmology, looked in her eye through a microscope and was startled to see insect legs wiggling in her eye socket. The doctor eventually extracted four sweat bees from her eyelid. The bees, which crave salt, were feeding off of He’s tears, he explained. He is expected to fully recover, and the bees, still alive, were kept for further study. [The Washington Post, 4/10/2019]

Suspicions Confirmed A concerned animal lover in Devon, England, contacted authorities on April 8 to report that a fox she had been watching hadn’t moved for several days, reported Fox News. In response, Ellie Burt, an officer with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals, sug-

gested trying the “broom test,” which didn’t make the fox stir, but Burt was told it “tracked them with its eyes and seemed to be breathing well.” When Burt arrived on the scene, she quickly diagnosed the problem: The fox was a fake, “stuffed by a taxidermist. He’d clearly been placed under a bush outside of the houses as a prank,” Burt said. “Someone had been moving it around the neighborhood.” Burt discarded the fox “to avoid any further calls.” [Fox News, 4/12/2019]

The Litigious Society An unnamed 40-yearold man in Muncie, Indiana, is suing his parents for trashing his collection of porn videos and magazines, which he estimates was worth $29,000. According to the Associated Press, the man had been living with his parents for 10 months following a divorce, and after he bought a new house, his parents delivered his possessions -- minus the 12 boxes of porn. His parents admitted dumping the collection; in an email quoted by the lawsuit, the father told his son, “I did you a big favor by getting rid of all this stuff.” The son is seeking $87,000 in financial damages.

In Del Mar, exotic feathers stay together

DEL MAR — Whoever said: ‘Birds of a feather flock together,’ must have paid a visit to Del Mar’s Free Flight, a unique exotic bird sanctuary. This is a colorful place in more ways than one that aims to “maintain a sanctuary that shelters, nurtures and re-socializes parrots, while educating the public to inspire a lasting concern for the wellbeing of exotic birds,” according to Free Flight’s mission statement on its website. Founded in 1981 as a boarding and breeding facility, Free Flight has evolved into a one-of-a-kind exotic bird sanctuary where parrots and people connect. It was benefactor Dr. Robert F. Stonebreaker’s vision to create a sanctuary for exotic companion birds that would provide a special and unique environment to raise community awareness and to encourage positive interaction with these birds, according to Programs and Development Director Lauren Cooper. Contributing to its tropical surroundings, there is

a large pond with friendly and beautiful koi which was originally home to rescued flamingos who have since been successfully rehomed. Cooper said Free Flight became a 501(c)3 nonprofit in March 2009. Less than a year later, it suffered a tremendous loss when Stonebreaker passed away suddenly. This tragedy inspired clients, colleagues, employees and family to be more determined than ever to continue to pursue his passion for all species of exotic birds, the website adds. As a result, numerous parrots in need have come to Free Flight where staff has been instrumental in finding them great new homes. So where do the birds come from and how often? Cooper said the birds come from homes which can no longer care for them due to substantial life transitions, illness, changing family dynamics or other difficult hardships. “Incoming numbers are always reflective of our adoption successes. As we



Judge Sim Von Kalinowski, who conducted Friday’s hearing and also sentenced Burgan in February, reinstated the probation, but ordered her to serve her custody beginning 8 p.m. April 19 and to at least the process of scheduling the mental health evaluation by no later than Monday, April 22. Von Kalinowski also gave Burgan 30 days to complete the mental health evaluation and ordered

are a small facility generally always operating at capacity, we coordinate new relinquishments as adopted residents’ spaces become available,” she said. To date the resident flock is made up of 35 birds (34 parrots and 1 East African crowned crane). “We adopt between 10 and 15 parrots out annually. Adoptions are unhurried, that she follow through on any recommendations that arise from the evaluation. If Burgan fails to comply with the conditions, Von Kalinowski said it would result in Burgan likely going to jail for at least some of the 90 days, which remain stayed. Burgan in 2018 told the media that Graham, the Republican front runner in the assembly race, forcibly kissed her during the early morning hours of May 14, 2018, after a night of drinking at the 1st Street Bar in Encinitas. She later filed a police

as our primary focus is ensuring prospective adopters visit and develop a strong and lasting bond with the bird(s) in question. During these visits, we offer specialized training on general health, nutrition, enrichment, behavior and more. “Recently, we have had many successful adoptions, so this number is currently increasing as we open report, which prompted a San Diego Sheriff’s Department investigation of her claims. But variations in her story to different media outlets and a series of restraining orders filed against Burgan in the past that accused her of filing false reports raised doubts about the veracity of her claims. The Sheriff’s Department investigated and disproved the claims after reviewing video surveillance inside and outside of the bar and interviewing several witnesses.

our doors to new feathered friends in need of a home. Our total capacity is 50 parrots, not including boarding birds who come to ‘vacation’ at Free Flight,” Cooper said. The Free Flight team is made up of a variety of passionate and hardworking individuals. There are six parttime and one full-time staff members. “However, we consider ourselves even more fortunate for the efforts of 31 volunteers, six senior docents, and 11 junior docents who regularly dedicate their time to helping us fulfill our mission,” she said. Regular highlights a visitor experiences at the sanctuary include: hearing witty expressions and cleverly timed sound effects from the birds, getting to snuggle with the sanctuary’s oldest resident “Obi” (a 70-year-old Umbrella Cockatoo), playing “Peekaboo!” and dancing with effervescent macaws, and so on. “In addition, our team of staff, docents and volunteers cherish every oppor-

tunity to educate the public about avian welfare and parrots’ incredible intelligence,” she said. And if you thought you had to be a bird lover to visit, no way, Cooper said. “Not by any means. Although, you’re sure to become a bird lover by the time you leave,” she said. Many parrots will spend anywhere from two to 10 years to a lifetime here, depending on their individual needs. Free Flight becomes a new form of home for them: each has a private indoor cage with personal toys and food/water. During the day, they come out into the open-air yard to visit with guests, soak up the sunshine, and scream to their heart’s content (a favorite parrot pastime). Cooper said as technically wild animals, companion parrots face a unique dilemma as countless numbers are still being bred and purchased by individuals who are not properly educated about their care. “While we love all birds, we keep our mission focused on parrots because of their longevity (anywhere between 20- to 80year lifespans) and their exceptionally challenging requirements,” Cooper said. “Most will require more than one home in their lifetime, and it is our hope that every caretaker who comes into their life has the skill-set necessary to offer the happiest and healthiest life possible.” Free Flight also strives to act as an educational resource for existing parrot owners and features behavioral consultations to help birds stay in their existing homes whenever possible and other specialized trainings and workshops as the need arises.

San Diego County average gas price stable REGION — The average price of a gallon of selfserve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose twotenths of cent April 23 to $4.062, one day after dropping two-tenths of a cent. The average price is 1.2 cents more than a week ago, 60 cents higher than a month ago and 44.2 cents greater than a year ago, according to the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. “It appears prices have stabilized at very high levels,” Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California said.

“There’s been no reports of additional refinery incidents, but also no reports that any of the California refineries undergoing maintenance have come back online. Los Angeles began receiving shipments of California-blend gasoline from Europe through the Panama Canal last week, and more are expected.” Gasoline is shipped by boat to California because “we don’t have gas pipelines from other parts of the U.S.” Montgomery said. — City News Service
