RSF School District discusses residency

RSF Education Foundation readies for pool parties By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — For the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation, this month means pool party time with new families who will be joining R. Roger Rowe when school begins on Aug. 28. The Newcomers’ Welcome Pool Party is considered one of the longest traditions at the school. “I remember being a new parent at this school, moving four children into a new school and you’re thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, who are they going to meet? Who are all these people and are we going to like it?’” RSFEF Development Director Barbara Edwards said. “I was so struck by the fact that families volunteered their free time during the summer to host these pool parties that we have.” In addition to new families, current parents also attend the event. According to Edwards, every year, they have a longer list of existing school families who want to participate in the newcomer pool parties to welcome new families. Edwards calls them “Ranch Hands.” Ranch Hands consist of a group of volunteer returning school families who agree to come to the pool parties. Ranch Hands include middle school and elementary school age children. Ranch Hands also take part in the Newcomers Barbecue with food prepared by Brett’s BBQ. New families have a chance to meet their teachers and visit the classrooms. During the month of August, pool parties are organized a couple of weeks before the start of the new

Youngest & Best Star Encinitas skateboarder Brighton Zeuner turned 13 years old July 14 at the X Games in Minneapolis — one day before she took the title of youngest athlete to win gold in the 21-year history of the event. Skating competitively since she was 8, Brighton competed in her first X Games last year as the youngest female ever invited and missed the podium by one point. This time, she kept her lead throughout both runs in the Women’s Park Final, beating out seven top skaters from around the world. “I am really overwhelmed by all this, and I just hope it inspires young girls to go after what they want, even if they think they are too young,” Zeuner said.

Businessman eyes 49th District seat By Aaron Burgin

REGION — Paul Kerr has a story to tell. The Rancho Santa Fe businessman recently announced his candidacy for the 49th Congressional District, taking aim at longtime incumbent Darrell Issa and President Donald Trump. But “Rancho Santa Fe businessman” isn’t all there is to Paul Kerr, the 62-year-old Democratic candidate said.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Board members of the Rancho Santa Fe School District decided to add a provision about continued enrollment to board policy 6028 regarding students whose parents were temporarily not residing in the district. The policy addressed the renovation of a home for residents who needed to relocate until its completion. The proposed provision ultimately agreed upon at the July meeting targets new construction. “In both cases, it requires three years of previous residency and the superintendent acknowledging that they (family) would be returning to their home in the district,” Superintendent David Jaffe said. Students may remain enrolled at R. Roger Rowe for the duration of a renovation, and now, while a new home is under construction. Board member Scott Kahn abstained from this vote since he is building a new home in Rancho Santa Fe and will be living outside of the district for a period of time. Kahn also removed himself from the Performing Arts Center during the vote. “Scott is building a new home, and the new policy allows for his kids to remain in the district,” Jaffe said. “It has nothing to do with the fact he’s a board member. This provision applies to any family that would meet these requirements.” Also discussed at the monthly meeting was the scheduling of a Rancho Santa Fe School District board of trustees team building and planning session. “The board’s discussion TURN TO SCHOOLS ON 3

Superintendent apologizes for SDUHSD’s handling of special ed program By Aaron Burgin

SOLANA BEACH — The superintendent of San Dieguito Union High School District apologized to a group of parents of special needs students for the district’s mishandling of its Adult Transition Program and vowed to move swiftly in addressing parents’ concerns. District officials said they would create a standing committee that would address special education needs across the district and work to create a permanent solution possibly

by the start of the school year, Aug. 29. But the group of parents — who said the district has for decades marginalized the nomadic program — said they had heard similar assurances before and wanted action. “I think you have to flat out admit, the mentality of our district has been that ATP is just an afterthought,” said Ellen Montanari, whose daughter, Maria, is a special needs student. “Can you admit that, yes or no?” Tensions ran high at

the July 28 meeting held at Earl Warren Middle School, the location of two modular buildings the district is poised to house the transition program in for the 2017-18 school year. The four-year adult transition program educates students with special needs from after graduation until the age of 22, equipping them with independent living skills and job skills so they can become productive members of society.

Whalen discusses RSF Connect site; new residents welcome program By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s monthly board meeting in July, directors listened to an update from Assistant Manager Christy Whalen. As RSF Connect nears a community-wide vote for Covenant residents with an August target date, Whalen discussed its dedicated website. According to Whalen, the website is designed to provide substantial information on the fiber project. RSF Connect, a proposal for a fiber optic network that will be built and maintained by the Rancho Santa Fe Association, aims to bring high-speed internet service of 1 gigabit to the community. Covenant residents can either log onto the Association’s website or log directly onto RSFConnect.com for more in-depth material about the proposed project. Whalen shared that visitors will also find FAQs, videos and columns authored by members of the Technology Committee. “There is information that will be helpful to our community as they want to learn more about this project,” she said.


T he R ancho S anta F e News

RSF Connect has had a presence at community events and has been on hand to answer questions. During the meeting, Whalen played a short video about how residents responded to the idea of RSF Connect. From being “so ready for it,” to “tired of shoddy internet service,” the video demonstrated that residents were ready for a change to meet their internet and streaming needs. “We will continue these education efforts,” Whalen said. Part of those educational energies will involve the recently approved RSF Connect Education Subcommittee. Members include Whalen, Association Manager Bob Hall, Association board President Fred Wasserman, Association board member Janet Danola and Association board member and co-chair of the Technology Committee Rick Sapp. The subcommittee will prepare ballot materials as well. Beginning on July 1, the Association decided on a new Covenant residents welcome program. In the past, welcome baskets were the introduction. Whalen explained that new Cov-

enant members would receive a phone call about their welcome gift waiting for them at the Association office. “We want to have a face-to-face hello with our new members and offer them a welcome gift of a succulent plant,” she said. “With all of our efforts to be water wise, it was an appropriate gift.” Additionally, new members will receive a postcard with listed links such as the RSF Golf Club, RSF Tennis Club and Parks and Trails. “We also put all our materials online so that we can update them more easily. Residents can have that information at their fingertips — it is more convenient and more user-friendly,” she said. Whalen called the new welcome program a nice chance to meet and interact. Another idea in the works is teaming up with the golf and tennis clubs for a new member social event, such as a quarterly cocktail party. For more information about RSF Connect, Whalen invites Covenant residents to visit RSFConnect. com.

RSF Connect gets closer to community-wide vote By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Covenant residents can expect an upcoming community-wide vote for RSF Connect, a fiber optic network that will bring high-speed internet service to the community. At the Rancho Santa Fe Association board’s monthly meeting in July, a target date for a community vote was set for August. In preparation, board members unanimously approved the RSF Connect Education Subcommittee, which will include RSF Association board President Fred Wasserman, board member Janet Danola, board member Rick Sapp, RSF Association Manager Bob Hall and RSF Association Assistant Manager Christy Whalen. The purpose of the subcommittee is to prepare educational materials to help Covenant members learn more about the RSF Connect as well as prepare ballot materials. At the time of the board meeting, discussions were being finalized with an internet service provider. The name will be released once negotiations are confirmed. “We are continuing discussions with the county to get an indication of approval

from them for construction methods, how the project is structured and finalizing the engineering designs and project costs,” Whalen said. “Many volunteer hours and staff hours have gone into this.” According to Wasserman, 60 miles of trenching would take place for the project. RSF resident Suzy Schaefer wanted to know if the trenches would be in the middle of the road. Sapp, who also serves as the co-chair of the Technology Committee, explained that there were different specs for trenching based on the various jurisdictions. The county was involved in the decision process for where the micro-trenches would be on the road. “The reason to use the roads is a rapid construction process,” said Sapp, adding that it was almost eliminating environmental issues. “The time difference is quite meaningful.” The estimation was that the construction time would be half using the roads, which was why the Technology Committee was pursuing this avenue. Wasserman added that RSF Connect would make

the Covenant one of the most connected communities in the state. If Covenant residents approve RSF Connect, project completion will take anywhere from 18 to 24 months. On average, 12 to 20 homes would be connected daily. It’s the decision of each homeowner as to whether they want to take part in the network. RSF Connect will enable Covenant residents and businesses with an internet speed of 1 gigabit. Wasserman shared that the system would provide landline phone, television and video streaming. “We are hopeful a security system can be tied into it,” Wasserman said. “The next phase at some point in time is to improve the cell phone service, but this is not part of the project now.” Wasserman called RSF Connect one of the biggest and most important projects the community has ever taken on. As discussed in previous meetings, RSF Connect will be constructed and maintained by the Association. “We are excited to bring this to the community for a vote and move forward,” Whalen said.

Food servers not happy with KAABOO Del Mar By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — If attendance numbers are any indication, KAABOO Del Mar has grown increasingly popular since its debut in 2015. But that’s not necessarily the case for the food and beverage employees who worked the three-day entertainment and arts festival at the Del Mar Fairgrounds the previous two years. Since 1990, Premier Food Services has provided bartenders, wait staff and other hospitality-related workers for the state-owned facility, which is governed by the 22nd District Agricultural Association. Many Premier employees are represented by the San Diego County Hotel and Food Service Workers’ Local 30. About a dozen members attended a July 13 meeting of the 22nd DAA to share concerns they have about



and the actual motion itself was whether to have it in the summer, so the 3-2 vote was for those that voted ‘no’ on it,” Jaffe said. “It wasn’t they were voting ‘no’ on the concept of meeting, it was the timing of it.” Jaffe said that in August he will bring forward a plan meant to engage the entire community in an analysis of all its programs. From there, it will springboard into the creation of an organizational action plan that the district

KAABOO organizers not using Premier for next month’s event. “Our greatest assets here are our people,” fairgrounds General Manager Tim Fennell said, adding that while KAABOO is not obligated to use Premier, the organizers are contractually required to give its employees first rights to those jobs. “Once (Premier employees) fill the jobs then they (KAABOO) will open them up to others,” Fennell said. Union members said their concern is that since they won’t be working for Premier, those hours will not count under the union contract, which could affect their ability to qualify for health benefits. “We depend on those hours for insurance,” one worker said. “Many of us are really, really scared.” Doris Schmidtberger, a spokeswoman for the group

that attended the meeting, said Premier employees heard about the decision from their union representative rather than anyone associated with the fairgrounds or KAABOO. “Some of us have been working here for 20 years,” she said. “It’s a great job. We like it. ... But they pulled the rug out from under us.” Charles Yip, a union field representative, said he believes the decision was financial. “Cutting Premier off is a way for them to make more money,” he said, adding that the hourly wage paid by other companies is not necessarily less than what Premier pays. Yip said there were unanswered questions about how servers will be paid for catered events, during which workers are generally compensated by a percentage of the overall bill rather than individual tips.

Additionally, Premier employees served the crews and other workers. Fennell disagreed with Yip’s assessment. He said KAABOO organizers indicated to him they “wanted to try something new.” “They’ve only been doing this for two years so it’s a learning curve,” Fennell said. “They have to make money like everybody else. But I don’t think that’s the case.” He said even if it were, “people have to look at the big picture.” “The fair, a number of years ago, was 20 days,” he said. “Then it went to 22 and then to ... 26. Go back a few more years when we were doing 100 events a year. Now we’re doing 300. “KAABOO was not here two years ago,” Fennell added. “If we want to have KAABOO here next year, they have to be financially

will use as a basis for decision-making moving forward. “So, my recommendation was to let me do my presentation of what is the process I’d like us to engage in,” he said. If the board agrees to his organizational action plan, Jaffe explained, then it will make more sense that they convene for a team building and planning session after it is presented. Jaffe indicated that his presentation will outline a plan for continuous growth. If the school board accepts

it, this will become a blueprint for the work that the district will focus on moving forward. Looking ahead to the August meeting, Jaffe will also present the board with data from a recent online parent survey. Jaffe told the board he was quite happy with the parent Response, which was at 256. Jaffe explained that the idea behind the parent survey is to make it a regular process for reviewing the district’s practices each year. The results of a year-

end survey help to drive the development of the LCAP report and also help keep the school on track with the action plan goals that its sets. “What I’m excited about in all of it is by and large that people are really happy with the overall education students are getting at the school,” he said. “The challenge in a high-performing organization is there’s always room for growth.” He added that “the foundation of a really strong institution is the belief that we can always improve.”

successful. So you can’t look at the short term. If working KAABOO nonunion doesn’t give them credit toward their benefits, I don’t know. “But the fact of the matter is, they’re still going to be able to work and in the big picture, KAABOO

will be here five, six ... 10 years down the road and that gives everybody the opportunity to work.” Joshua Goodman, a KAABOO spokesman, said the goal of the event is “to ensure an outstanding guest experience.”

As elsewhere, city elections likely headed for a change Mayor’s Minute By Catherine Blakespear

Brown’s email problem could sully his legacy California Focus By Thomas D. Elias

As Gov. Jerry Brown travels the nation and world posing grandly as the Anti-Trump and the ultimate champion of the battle against climate change, he’s plainly very conscious of the legacy he will leave behind when he’s termed out for good after next year. But an email controversy that’s dogged him for almost two years remains and it may sully the grand record of accomplishment Brown wants to take with him into retirement. More than a year after the state Supreme Court unanimously ruled that text messages and emails sent by public officials on their personal devices are public records if they deal with public business, Brown has still not moved to end his problem. No one but him and the recipients knows whether that’s because there’s something untoward in 63 of his or his office’s communications with the state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) at the time of the 2013 agreement that saddled consumers with 70 percent of the costs for shutting down the ruined San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, about $3.3 billion. When she was state attorney general, current U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris announced investigations both into that agreement and into whether Brown would have to turn over his emails. Harris is long gone from her former office, Brown having heartily endorsed her Senate bid. Her successor, Xavier Becerra, draws headlines for opposing President Trump at every turn, but refuses to say anything about those two investigations, which he has apparently allowed to fizzle. The inaction of both Harris and Becerra raises the question of conflict of interest for them. Said Becerra’s press office in an email, “We are the governor’s lawyer… (in this matter).” So the question of whether Brown should be forced to release his emails is being decided by his own lawyer, which may be why the announced investigation has stalled. But consumer advocates led by former San Diego City Attorney Mike Aguirre persist in their efforts to learn whether there’s a smoking gun in those emails. It’s already well documented that executives of San Onofre operator Southern California Ed-

ison Co. met with former PUC President Michael Peevey (himself a former Edison president) and hashed out the agreement the PUC eventually passed. Now Aguirre has been boosted by a friend of the court brief from the city of San Bruno, site of the 2010 explosion of a Pacific Gas & Electric Co. natural gas pipeline explosion that killed eight people and destroyed dozens of homes. Well aware that documents show a close relationship between PG&E and officials of the PUC including Peevey, San Bruno officials wonder why no one at PG&E was punished even though the company was convicted of criminal negligence in the pipeline blast. So the city cites the PUC’s long history of trying to “stonewall the production of documents.” It clearly hopes that if an appeals court orders production of the Brown emails, it will also lead to opening of yet more secret communications about PG&E and the San Bruno detonation. Meanwhile, current PUC President and former Brown advisor Michael Picker ignored a request to answer questions about both cases. Aguirre’s brief in his appeal for release of the Brown emails cites conflicting Picker testimony about how he decided to vote for the San Onofre settlement. “I base my decisions on the evidentiary record of the proceeding,” Picker told a state Assembly committee in 2014. Yet, the PUC later said in refusing to divulge the emails that they reflect “discussions between…Picker and his advisors, the disclosure of which would reveal (his) thought process regarding the…matter.” Picker, of course, did not tell the Assembly committee about those discussions, which may have included communications with Brown. In short, Picker changed his story, and the Brown emails may show why. Says Maria Severson, Aguirre’s law partner, “The PUC claims the public interest in withholding the records outweighs the public interest in disclosure,” an argument often made by government officials during cover-ups. But Brown must realize that the emails will eventually emerge, even if it’s years after he leaves office. So if there’s no evidence of wrongdoing in them, why not quit stonewalling and just open them up right now? Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

T h e City of Encinitas recently had its at-large election system cha l lenged under the California Voting Rights Act of 2001, like several other North County cities. In mid-July, we received a letter from the Malibu law firm of Shenkman & Hughes, which has been demanding that cities and school boards throughout Southern California change the way their board members are elected. Mr. Shenkman’s specific allegation is that Encinitas’ existing entire-city election system causes Latino “vote dilution.” About 13 percent, or 8,000, of Encinitas’ 62,000 residents are Latino. Mr. Shenkman alleges that in the city’s 30-year history, no Latino has been elected to the City Council. Many dispute that allegation, mentioning past elected officials whose names might not clearly reflect their heritage. Under the current atlarge system, every city resident votes for four City Council members and one mayor, with three representatives on the ballot every two years. Mr. Shenkman alleges that the law requires that “communities of interest” be kept together in voting districts, which aims to create more minority representation on elected boards. San Marcos, Oceanside, Poway, Carlsbad and Vista have all recently opted to move to districts based on this litigation threat. Each

of those cities is painfully aware that the city of Palmdale, in Los Angeles County, spent about $7 million fighting and losing a Voting Rights Act lawsuit brought by Mr. Shenkman. Since that time, many cities and school districts have voluntarily switched from at-large to a district system under pressure from Mr. Shenkman’s firm. In addition to the North County cities mentioned above, other cities that opted to district instead of face a legal challenge include San Juan Capistrano, Costa Mesa, Buena Park, Garden Grove, Hemet, Wildomar, Hesperia, Upland, and others. In Encinitas, it appears clear that fighting this would not be a prudent use of taxpayer money. Additionally, if a city goes to court and loses, the city would lose control of the districting process. For instance, in Palmdale after the city lost the court case, four incumbent council members were placed in a single City Council district by the court. In Palmdale, 75 percent of the city is comprised of people of color, but the City Council members were all white with one Latino. In Encinitas, the city likely will be divided into four parts or “districts,” each with around 15,500 residents. Those residents would elect one City Council member. It is very unlikely that our five existing communities of Cardiff, Leucadia, Old Encinitas, New Encinitas and Olivenhain will be kept in their own districts. There is a large population size difference between each community, and there are five communities while there will only be four districts. Encinitas residents will be very involved in helping us draw the maps that will elect representatives. It’s

likely that the mayor will continue to be elected at large and not by district, given that the voters made that change in 2014. Other North County cities that recently switched to district elections retained their at-large elected mayors. In drawing the maps, political parties and the addresses of incumbents are not permissible considerations. Although I don’t believe it makes sense to fight this legal challenge, I am concerned about the effect redistricting will have on our city. Like other cities, I expect that we’ll make the change grudgingly. Our current City Council members are high-functioning, and professional – each is an exemplary public servant. When all of us are elected by the entire community, we are each similarly moved to accomplish the greater good of the entire city. District elections may create a shift toward more provincialism, with council members forced to become competitive, aiming to please a smaller and more specific constituency, possibly at the expense of the whole city. I have no doubt that there are qualified, motivated and appealing candidates in any districts that will be created in Encinitas. However, I believe that structural changes can have impacts on policy outcomes. We’ll all have to wait and see what the effects of districting will be in Encinitas. Catherine S.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Taking the lead in offering day trips to its members and their guests, the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club made special arrangements for August. On Aug. 9, the club will be making a beeline from Rancho Santa Fe to historic Balboa Park to visit The Mingei International Museum. To beat the heat, Executive Director Shelly Breneman thought a museum visit would be ideal. And Garden Club members agreed. “This is something I pulled together from a focus group of our members,” she said, adding that they were a blend of both longtime and new members. From a group of 14 members, Breneman asked for ideas of day trips. They all agreed on a museum getaway. According to Breneman, this trip is slightly different from previous ones since it focuses on something outside of garden-related activities. “We have a private guided docent tour, and then we’re going to be seeing three different featured exhibits which are Kanban, the Trappings and Arline Fisch,” she said. The Mingei Museum is

regarded for its collection of cultural objects from around the globe. Following the docent tour, participants will be part of a private catered lunch at the House Hospitality Restaurant at the Prado, an award-winning eatery. “It should be a fun day,” said Breneman, noting that there were a handful of spots still available and carpools would be offered. Breneman also wants everyone to know about an event they are sponsoring for the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society: Historic Places. To celebrate master architect Lilian Rice, whose work is found throughout the Ranch, historian Vonn Marie May will present an educational program. “Vonn is very well known in Rancho Santa Fe,” she said For more information about the historic Balboa Park to visit The Mingei International Museum, or to RSVP, contact Breneman at shelly@RSFGardenClub. org or call (858) 756-1554.

2017 cannabis event at fairgrounds canceled By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — The Goodlife Festival will not be held as planned on Sept. 23 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. “Maybe in 2018,” organizer Lawrence Bame wrote in an email. Bame signed a $12,000 contract with the stateowned facility in March to hold the one-day festival, which was billed as an educational and informational event about medical marijuana. According to a press release from Bame, it was to include food, entertainment, exhibitions and informative seminars to help attendees, who had to be 21 and older, appreciate and learn more about how cannabis, when used in a safe, legal and healthful way, “can enhance a creative, spirited, relaxed (and painfree!) lifestyle.” “It’s a revolutionary new festival for anyone interested in ‘the good life!’ Nowhere else can you learn more about the emerging cannabis scene, (from) the growers and business owners of your favorite can-



people of this district and will ultimately help me to be successful with the challenge I am about to undertake.”

nabis products all in one place,” the press release states. In May, with an 8-0 vote, the board of directors for the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which governs the fairgrounds, rescinded the contract, which required Bame to comply with all local, state and federal laws. Most of the directors — about half are attorneys — said they didn’t oppose educating the public about medical marijuana but couldn’t support any use or promotion of the products because even though medical and recreational uses are allowed in California, both remain illegal under federal law. Nearly all had liability concerns and how a decision to allow the festival as it was being advertised could impact their personal and professional lives and responsibilities to the fairgrounds. “The only government policy that I can follow is adherence to law, and we clearly have a federal law that prohibits possession of

He lasted two days. “I didn’t last even close to that long,” he said about the summer job. “As a result of that experience, I have a profound respect for men and women who are working so hard to provide for a better life for their kids.” A few years later when Kerr was 16 years old, the family’s life was turned upside down when his mother was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. His father’s company was about to shut down its operations in Arizona,

marijuana,” Director Richard Valdez said. “The federal law is in direct conflict with California state law,” said Josh Caplan, the deputy district attorney who acts as counsel to the 22nd DAA. “I can unequivocally tell you that the guidelines or any language which would allow for the possession or consumption of a controlled substance would violate the letter of federal law,” he added. Caplan said the probability of prosecution from

the federal government might be “quite low” but he couldn’t say “the probability is zero.” “Mr. Bame made it crystal clear that he’s going to breach the contract so it’s not worth the paper that it’s printed on,” Director Watson said. “I have no doubt that (marijuana) will be consumed onsite. And approving this contract just means that we’re endorsing the violation of federal law.” Directors said Bame, who has been producing

which would have left the family in dire straits because his next employer would not have been able to provide insurance for his mother due to her pre-existing condition. The company, Kerr said, created a job for his father in Southern California, and the family moved to Escondido. His mother died three years later. Kerr has lived in San Diego ever since. “Out of the kindness of this company, that is how I ended up in San Diego,” Kerr said. “That formed in me a very clear understanding of why we need universal health care in this country. I was this family.” At age 17, Kerr, not seeing a path to college, decided to join the U.S. Navy. He served for three years during the Vietnam era (though makes it clear he did not serve in the war itself). When his service term ended, Kerr said he wasn’t prepared for civilian life. Like many of his fellow service members, Kerr said he wasn’t prepared with the skills necessary to find good paying work. “A lot of these guys get out of the service, like me, and I could land aircraft on the beach, but I didn’t have specific training applicable to civilian life,” Kerr said. “I understand why our veterans struggle, because one day you have discipline, missions and goals and then one day, I walk off of the 32nd Street Naval Station and it’s like, ‘What do I do now?’ ” For the next nine years, Kerr said he worked in restaurants, as a waiter, a bouncer and a bartender. He then applied for a job in management at the restaurant and was denied because he didn’t have a college degree. “I started thinking, is

home and garden shows at the fairgrounds for more than 30 years, could still go forward with the event if a revised contract included a detailed description of the festival that also stated possession or consumption of marijuana for any use will not be allowed. Bame initially said that wasn’t a problem, and he continued to work with fairgrounds staff to address those issues. The soonest he could return to the board, which generally is not involved

this it?” Kerr said. “I have to do something, so I enrolled in SDSU when I was 29 years old.” U.S. G.I. bill benefits expired 10 years after one’s service ended at that time, Kerr said, so he wound up only having one year of his college education paid for. He worked to pay for college, but still graduated with $20,000 in student loan debt. Following graduation, however, Kerr became successful in commercial real estate and “hasn’t looked back,” he said.

Kerr the candidate

Kerr, who has never held a political office, said he felt compelled to run for congress due to the policies of the current presidential administration under Trump, which he said pose a threat to America’s poor and working class. Issa, who narrowly defeated a 2016 challenge by Col. Doug Applegate, has not only not stood up to Trump, but has ardently supported his agenda, which runs counter to the wishes of the people in the district, Kerr said. Kerr said that he feels the current political dynamics, in addition to fatigue over “career politicians,” could help him be victorious in the election. “First and foremost, if Trump keeps going down

the road he’s going, he could make it very easy, to put it very simply,” Kerr said of a Democrat victory in 2018. “But assuming nothing else changes, I think people are fed up with professional politicians. “The founders contemplated, when they put the system together, that people like me who have life experience would feel compelled to go back to Washington to serve,” Kerr said. “I think the vast majority of Democrats and Republicans are tired of the status quo, and as exhibit A you can look at any survey or poll on America’s satisfaction with Congress.” Kerr said he’s working hard to communicate his message to voters in both San Diego and Orange County. His campaign, he said, is focused on six issues: assisting lower income and working poor families, solving the country’s health care problem, veterans issues, solving the nation’s immigration problems in a humane fashion, protecting the environment and making college education an affordable option for young Americans. Each of the prongs of his platform comes from some aspect of his life experience, he said. “I am going to be out everywhere, and I am going to get that message out,” Kerr

In response to a recent email request for an update, Bame stated, “There is NO Festival in 2017. ... I have been told NOT to return to the Board this year!” He chose not to comment further. Director Stephen Shewmaker said as he understood the situation, the board was waiting for final guidance from the state Department of Food and Agriculture, which may be why it was suggested that Bame not appear before the board at this time. Tim Fennell, the fairgrounds general manger who negotiated the contract, was on vacation and unavailable to comment at press time. Watson said he had not been involved in any discussions regarding the event since the May 30 board decision to rescind the contract.

said. One thing he said he wants to do is get voters to know him beyond his current position in life, he said. “I don’t think it will be hard to overcome,” Kerr said of the perception that he is a rich guy from Rancho Santa Fe. “I’ve talked to you for about 15 minutes, and you already know where I’ve come from, and I don’t think you would identify with me as ‘just a wealthy guy.’ “I’ve beat back some really tough challenges and come through to the other side,” Kerr said. Kerr said he feels he will also be successful with independents and moderate Republicans — many of whom comprise the voting bloc that is critical in South Orange County — because of his business background. “That’s a big part of my life, and that is an area that they will look at and say, ‘he’s had to manage a budget, he’s had thousands of people work for him at his firm over the years,’” Kerr said. “I think those issues make me a very attractive candidate for the O.C. voter, especially for the moderates and independents.” Kerr said he will spend much of the next few months networking and fundraising to increase his visibility with voters in what will likely be a crowded Democratic primary field, which includes Applegate and environmental attorney Mike Levin. “It’s not something I have focused on or spent any time digging into or concerned with,” Kerr said about the growing field of Democratic candidates. “I appreciate and respect the fact that people feel motivated to do this and get out and run, but at the end of the day, I am laser focused on beating Darrell Issa in November 2018.”

The Bolts part with Lewin, but he settles in Solana Beach

he shuttle bus rolled close to the Solana Beach shores, with someone beaming with pride eager to greet it. “I love it here,” said a voice that sounded more familiar than it should. The pipes belonged to Josh Lewin. Yeah, that Josh Lewin who called Chargers football for 12 years before they headed to Los Angeles. Lewin can paint a picture with his words, but for once, he was speechless when looking west toward the ocean. So goes it for the North Coast rookie and we can’t blame him for being overwhelmed. Lewin is new to our slice of paradise and what’s with the open-mouth look again? “I grew up in Buffalo,” he said. Enough said and welcome to town, Josh. After not getting an RSVP from the Chargers, you’re always welcome in our neck of the woods. The Chargers elected against having the classy Lewin on the mic when testing the City of Angels waters. “I would have loved to be there to shove the boat off the dock,” he said. “But they decided they wanted someone with more of an L.A. presence.” Think the Bolts realize Lewin calls UCLA football and basketball? Even minus the NFL gig, Lewin is busy. Lewin does radio playby-play for the New York Mets, too. When the Mets were in San Diego recently, Lewis brought his colleagues over to see amazing Solana Beach. “I love it here,” he said, and yes, Lewin repeated himself. “It’s the

vibe and the friendly people.” Lewin’s grooviest times with the Chargers came when describing LaDainian Tomlinson. The incomparable running back enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 5 and among Lewin’s blessings is calling Tomlinson’s decorated career. It was through Lewin’s adjectives, knowledge and enthusiasm that many listeners were able to enjoy Tomlinson’s NFL ride. “It was his sheer talent that stood out and you have to start there,” Lewin said. “But to me it was how he was able to rise to the occasion.” Tomlinson did that when setting the NFL single-season touchdown record on Dec. 10, 2006. Tomlinson had tied the mark with his second, and 28th score on the season, against the Denver Broncos. When the Broncos turned the ball over late in the game and deep in their own territory, Tomlinson got one more chance in raucous Qualcomm Stadium. In Lewin’s immortal words: “Handoff, Tomlinson, he skirts it outside, into the end zone, Chargers fans are witnesses to history!” Tomlinson was carried off on his teammates’ shoulders; Lewin didn’t get carried away with the call. But the glee in his tone let everyone know just how special of a late afternoon it was in Mission Valley. “He wanted to do it at home and he wanted to do it in front of his fans,” Lewin said. “That was L.T.” What wasn’t Tomlinson came the next season when the Chargers advanced to the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots. A knee injury sidelined Tomlinson and the Chargers’ chance for a second Super Bowl was denied on a bitterly cold New England day. “That was so unlike him because he always found a way to do it,” Lewin said. “I was waiting for him to put the Superman cape on and run back out there. But sometimes the human body won’t let you do that.” And sometimes a voice associated with one of the grandest eras of Chargers football is silenced. “I wish I could be doing their games and it does feel odd not to,” he said. “But at least I retired as a San Diego Charger.” And, better yet, with his home in Solana Beach.

Long expects strong year from Chapman By Joe Naiman

The duty of a football quarterback is to advance the ball regardless of whether he throws to a receiver, hands off to a ball carrier, or carries the ball himself. Carlsbad High School graduate Christian Chapman, who is now the first-string quarterback for San Diego State University, lacks the impressive passing statistics of many of his National Collegiate Athletic Association colleagues but led the Aztecs to an 11-3 season last year that included victories over Wyoming

in the Mountain West Conference championship game and over Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl. "I think he's developed into a better quarterback as he's played," San Diego State head coach Rocky Long said during the Aztecs' Media Day on July 20. Chapman is currently a junior. Last year he completed 153 of his 251 passes for a total of 1,994 yards. Twenty of his passes were caught for touchdowns, and he only threw six interceptions. Although sacks and kneel-downs are subtracted from a quarterback's rushing yardage, Chapman's rushes for gains totaled 244 yards; his 71 attempts included 28 sacks. The Aztecs as a team rushed for 3,680 yards, and 34 of the Aztecs' 636 rushing attempts were for touchdowns. Donnel Pumphrey gained 2,133 yards and crossed the end zone 17 times, Rashaad Penny had 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground with an additional 224 yards and three touchdowns on 15 re-

Christian Chapman ceptions, and when Juwan Washington filled in for the starters, he gained 441 rushing yards and scored six times on carries. The Philadelphia Eagles selected Pumphrey in the fourth round of this year's National Football

League draft. This year Penny is a senior and Washington is a sophomore. Long expects Penny to carry the ball approximately 30 times per game and anticipates Washington having the ball on 15 to 20 rushing plays each contest. Long noted that a successful running game will actually give Chapman more flexibility. "If we run the ball well enough, he'll have chances to make some big plays in the passing game," Long said. Oceanside High School graduate Mikah Holder and fellow senior Quest Truxton are San Diego State's first-string wide receivers. "We've got to have Mikah and Truxton start making some big plays in the passing game," Long said.

Local non-profit organization investigates NAD+ therapy CRABH may have found a hidden link between several chronic conditions and addiction.


even years ago, Tom Ingoglia had an adverse reaction to a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, which threw him in a tailspin of declining health. His unrelenting chronic pain lead to an accidental opiate addiction, followed hyperalgesia, digestive issues, mental fog, depression and anxiety. After listening to the advice from his doctors with little success, Tom decided to explore unconventional therapies to help regain his health. Hanging onto a thread of hope, Tom discovered intravenous nicotinamide ad-

enine dinucleotide (NAD+ ) therapy, which ultimately changed his life and career forever. After 10 days of NAD+ therapy, Tom walked away free from pain. Since that moment, Tom has made it his mission to help bring this promising therapy to others who are looking for a health driven solution. The Center for Research on Addiction and Brain Health , or CRABH, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization recently announced its launch by publishing initial collected research on the subject of chronic pain and addiction. CRABH aims to investigate new and innovative therapies for addiction and chronic conditions by focusing on brain health. Many chronic conditions, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, neuropathic pain and chronic pain, are linked to deficits or a level of dysfunction within

the brain. Similarly, sub- dependencies are particustance abuse and chemical larly harmful to the sensi-

tive brain and nerve cells, which can result in the same level of dysfunction. CRABH may have found a hidden link between several chronic conditions and addiction, a B vitamin coenzyme known as NAD+ . NAD+ is already inside almost every cell of the body and is known for its crucial role in energy production. “A different approach to treating pain without causing addiction, withdrawal, or other harmful side effects is intravenous supplementation with NAD,+” as quoted in ‘A New, Non-invasive Treatment Option for Chronic Pain,’ one of the white papers recently published by CRABH. “It is also associated with cell survival and cell death, making this molecule very important for cell metabolism.” Two white papers have been published with the help of volunteers, Made-

lyn Huttner and Samantha Raya. The researchers stepping forward to donate their time understand the mission of this non-profit and are excited to be involved with the initial phases of research. In only days of launching, CRABH has already collected more than twenty thought leaders to speak on the newest innovations in brain health and addiction at the Third Annual NAD Summit January 26-28th, 2018 in San Diego, California. Hosted by CRABH, this event will be a gathering for researchers, innovators and advocates, including John Gray, Ph.D., to discuss and provide insight on brain health. All contributions are welcome and donations are tax deductible. To learn more about volunteer opportunities and about the organization itself, go to www.brainresearch.center.

Wall Street Bloodhound tracks down valuable investor info VISTA — A new investor resource, Wall Street Bloodhound, (www.wallstreetbloodhound.com) has opened its doors with an exclusive offer to The Coast News readers of 4,000-plus websites over three downloadable lists for $199 — which is under a nickel per click. Created by George Krivine, a former stockbroker with more than 25 years of experience, it was developed to partner public filings with a multi-step vetting of private and public companies found in public records. Available by download and then implementing the use of hyperlinks, each list is free of popups, banner ads and other potential distractions. The bundle consists of

three lists, the first encompassing 1,200plus private and general search results for medical marijuana businesses in North American and selected international locales. The second list contains 2,000-plus UAV public, private and general search results for aerial — ground — surface drone companies. The third list is made up of 1,300-plus metro area San Diego private, public and general search results. While many traditional large employers are in the automotive, financial and various service businesses, the economic downturn that began in the sum-

mer of 2008, caused many individuals in the rush to “down size,” and to channel their emotions, energies, expertise and passions to start new businesses. Their initiative along with a maturing & expanding online ecomomy, are positioning themselves from a layoff casualty to an entrepreneur creating new jobs in the community.

SOLANA BEACH — Work to repair the aging Seascape Sur beach access stairway will begin this fall after council members at the July 12 meeting approved an approximately $200,000 contract with Conan Construction Inc. The structure at the south end of the city will be closed during the estimated four-month construction period, slated to begin in October or November. The stairway, built in 1995, includes five piers on the bluff, three piers in the sand below and several flights of stairs leading to the beach. Through the years routine maintenance has been performed. In 2008 the beach piers were encased with an interlocking system to strengthen them against surface wear from the abrasive impacts of sand, cobble and water, especially during winter storms and high tides. But the harsh marine environment has rusted the metal hangers and fasteners that support the treated lumber steps, which also need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. Last year it was determined the stairway is safe for public use, but maintenance was needed to ensure the deterioration didn’t reach a point where the structure would require an emergency closure for repairs. Noble Construction, the original design consultant that prepared plans detailing how the stairway would be built and repaired, was hired in April 2016 to create design plans for the renovation. Construction bids were advertised this past May. Six proposals ranging from $202,690, from Conan, to $326,325 were submitted. Conan built the veterans courtyard at La Colonia Park, as well as other projects in the city. The work will include removing and replacing the existing concrete walkway from Sierra Avenue to the top landing of the stairs

because tree roots have caused severe damage. Work is expected to take about four months because the California Coastal Commission permit waiver prohibits construction on weekends and holidays or between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The contract includes a larger-than-normal contingency of $40,000 — approximately 20 percent — because of uncertainty about how hard it will be to remove the fittings. “The current metal hardware pieces on the stairs are frozen and rusted to a point that it is difficult to estimate what it might take to unbolt the sections with no or minimal damage to the rest of the structure,” Mo Sammak, the city engineer, said. The city budgeted $300,000 for the project from the transient occupancy tax sand replacement fund. Any leftover money

will be returned to that fund and reallocated for future projects. When the design contract was awarded last year, then-Councilman Mike Nichols suggested replacing the stairs with concrete rather than wood because he said pressure-treated lumber is not good for bare feet. There are a lot of toxins in there, he said, adding that concrete would also decrease the risk of splinters and last longer. Sammak said after looking into that recommendation, he learned concrete threads are not a viable option because they are heavier and would compromise the structural integrity of the stairway and the foundation. Additionally, the beams supporting the stairs, called stringers, would all have to be replaced with a different material, which would make the entire structure heavier. “This option would make the project much more complicated from a scheduling and budgeting point of view,” he added.

Conlogue wins Supergirl Pro surf event with a near perfect score By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — Courtney Conlogue of Santa Ana won the Paul Mitchell Neon Supergirl Pro on July 30 with a near perfect wave score. The annual threeday surf competition drew thousands to watch top female surfers compete for the title and $10,000 first-place and $5,000 second-place win. “This weekend is all about female empowerment,” Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment and event producer, said. “The Supergirl Pro was created with the mission of providing opportunities for young women in areas where they are traditionally under-represented. It’s incredibly heartening to see all the young women that come out to watch these phenomenal athletes compete and find inspiration for their own dreams.” Surfers in the all-women competition are judged on ride commitment and degree of difficulty, innovative and progressive maneuvers, combination of major maneuvers, variety of maneuvers, speed, power and flow. Scores in the final heat between Conlogue and Sage Erickson of Ojai were high. What sealed the win for Conlogue was an incredible, single-maneuver wave which earned her a near-perfect score of 9.77 out of 10. Conlogue showed off her innovative and progressive skills with a massive air-reverse spin out of the whitewater. This is Conlogue’s second Supergirl Pro win. She first won the Supergirl Pro in 2009. “After being the runner-up a few times I’m definitely stoked to get the (Supergirl) cape back,” Conlogue said. “The opportunity to surf against Sage in the final was a big highlight of this event. I haven’t been able to compete against her in a final in a long time.” Conlogue and Erickson have a good relationship in and out of the water. Both say the other inspires them to perform at their best. Upon hearing the announcement that Conlogue took the win, Erickson helped carry the champion

Courtney Conlogue on a victory shoulder ride in from the surf. “It was a dream to be in a final with Courtney again, especially here in California,” Erickson said. “We have so many memories together and we’re at a point where we love and encourage each other, but I still wanted to beat her.” Erickson took second place. Tatiana WestonWebb of Princeville, Kauai, and 15-year-old Caroline Marks of Melbourne Beach, Florida, tied for third. Marks provided some

RSFEF keeps track of new registrations during the summer months. “Our Newcomers Committee reaches right out with a welcome letter, and mentions to please come to this pool party and meet some of your fellow classmates,” Edwards said. The Welcome Pool Party is a chance for new parents to meet current

of the biggest upsets in rounds four and five of the competition by outperforming top-ranked Johanne Defay of Reunion Island, France, and Laura Enever of Sydney Australia. “It’s such an incredible experience because these girls are the best in the world,” Marks said. “I want to be surfing against them in the future, so to surf against them now is amazing." Erickson and WestonWebb also won the inaugural Nissan Super Sport Award for being Supergirl standouts in surfing and social media. “It was inspiring to see so many female athletes come together and support one another throughout the competition,” Jason Stoicevich, Nissan regional vice president, said. Both athletes received a new Rogue Sport. WestonWebb was also awarded a $5,000 donation to a charity of choice. The winner of the cash donation was determined by a coin flip between the tied winners. The Supergirl Pro event included a festival village, which featured live music by 15 artists and the inaugural Supergirl Gamer Pro esports tournament. parents and for children to bond with other children. The advantages are many. Edwards pointed out that she watches new parent families arriving with a sense of angst but by the time they leave the pool parties they are scheduling play dates. “A lot of our families who are newcomers one year are so struck by the sort of outpouring of generosity and welcoming nature, that they elect to be part of the Newcomers Committee coming forward,” Edwards said.

What’s a polite lady to do now? small talk jean gillette


f anyone is still looking for a sign of the apocalypse, it has most certainly arrived. The Southwest Blue Book is going out of print. Granted, it is not the East Coast Blue Book, but I’m certain it must have kept track, for the last 115 years, of just who has the biggest ranchero in these parts. I mean, one simply has to know, doesn’t one? The British still rely on Burke’s Peerage, after all. Well, some of them might. I know you are as aghast as I, and are near delirious with wonder about how on earth you will know whom to snub at the next charity gala. The social register, or Blue Book, was the go-to guide to polite society. Now everyone thinks just being polite is enough. Really. Just as in the 1880s when the first Blue Book was established, it has been dreadfully important for clues about proper behavior. How will one know when we might, or had best not, call on an acquaintance? Well, yes, the invention of the telephone did make that a bit more manageable. And of course, if you have succumbed to all the modern technological kerfuffle, you can even text or Instagram, and whatnot. But that is just so frightfully casual, now, isn’t it? When one is in the workplace things get even dicier. It seems we are now required to get on with even the lowest-ranking member of the staff. This is especially important when you are that lowest-ranking member of said staff. But never mind that. We still know that being in The Book makes all the difference in one’s life. Isn’t it the first thing you are asked at any job interview? What? That’s illegal now? Well, there you go — a perfect example of the crumbling of proper behavior. As we descend into chaos, there is the ever-reliable method of identifying the tasteless of the world by simply checking their shoes the day after Labor Day. If they are still shod in white, well then, you have your answer. But if they are wearing flip-flops and have a decent manicure, your guess is as good as mine. I believe I will retire to my chaise lounge. I have a case of the vapors. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer wondering where to turn to find someone to feel superior to.

Cadets of the San Diego Army and Navy Academy stand in formation during a dress parade in the early 1900s. The academy opened in Pacific Beach with 13 students; two years later, there were 156. The school’s founder, Capt. Thomas Davis, welcomed foreign students, unlike most private schools of the day that restricted admissions to white Christians. Admission was $600 a year for boarding students, $100 for day students. Uniforms cost about $50. Photo courtesy author’s collection

Alum pens military school history book By E’Louise Ondash

Virginia-born Thomas A. Davis, a veteran of the Spanish American War (1898), arrived in San Diego in 1910 to establish a “high grade military high school.” The San Diego Army and Navy Academy moved from Pacific Beach to Carlsbad in 1936. Photo courte-

sy author’s collection

Alexander Mui was a sophomore at the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad 12 years ago when he discovered the school’s long-neglected history museum. It was out of this find and years of in-depth research that his book, “Army & Navy Academy: History of the West Point of the West” (History Press: $22.99) was born. “No one had opened the museum in a long time,” Mui explained during a phone interview from Austin, Texas. “There were a lot of old newspapers and books, and everything was covered with mold. I started a project with a parent to renovate the museum and preserve as many artifacts as possible.” Mui’s book is not only a history of the Carlsbad academy,



for several weeks the district’s decision to house the program in the buildings on a middle school campus, which the parents have called “separate and unequal” conditions. Superintendent Eric Dill said Friday that the district had not lived up to assurances that had been given to parents of the children in the program. “First off I want to say I’m sorry,” Dill said. “I know some promises were made for involvement planning of that classroom and we didn’t deliver on that promise of involvement and I think that is what has led to a lot of that concern today.” But at the July 28 parent forum, the parents aired a number of grievances regarding the district’s treatment of the program, including promises made — and not kept — by staff members in the past regarding the program’s location, the district’s apparent failure to include it in its $449 million bond campaign and the potential for moving the program again without a clear plan for a permanent home. Parents said that district employees promised that the district was building the program a “state-of-the-art” permanent facility as part of Earl Warren Middle School’s $37 million renovation. But they became concerned when the district in May approved the purchase of the two modular units. The two, 1,400-square

but of the country’s military schools. “There had never been a book written about American military schools,” Mui explained. “Much of the book is original research. There was a lot of piecing together scraps of newspapers.” Through the process, the author realized how important military schools were to the history of Southern California and North County. “(They) used to be a hotbed for military schools,” he said. A native of California whose ancestors immigrated to the United States from China, Mui graduated in 2008 from the academy. He went on to study molecular and cellular biology at Johns Hopkins University, where he also began writing a history of that school.

foot buildings have only three windows, little natural light and at least one district parent who toured the facilities said the units smelled badly and were extremely hot. This set off a wave of parent complaints to the district, which prompted them to host the recent meeting to allay concerns about the rooms. It largely did the opposite. Parents, after touring the two units — which were spruced up and had the air conditioning running — said the units weren’t enough to equip the 47-student program, and weren’t compliant with the Americans with Disability Act. Following the tour, the group of parents and district officials moved down to Earl Warren’s multi-purpose room, where parents peppered Dill with questions and criticisms about the district’s handling of the program. Several parents focused their criticism on former Special Education director Charles “Chuck” Adams, who they said misled parents about the forthcoming facilities. “You can understand our frustration, because you are saying the same things that Chuck said to us,” Montanari said to Dill. Parents said for years they have complained to district staff about the lack of a permanent space for the program, as it has moved from MiraCosta College to several storefronts before settling in at the middle school campus for the past two years.

Students connect on basketball court CARLSBAD — High school students from across North County are learning that sports have the ability to transcend language barriers and borders. Last week, students from Pacific Ridge School spent three days in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, hosting basketball clinics and scrimmages with local children and youth league players. Six players from the Pacific Ridge boys varsity basketball team went to Rosarito on July 17 to teach lessons at youth camps in the area. About 70 kindergarten-aged children were enthusiastic about being coached by the older students, learning basic skills like dribbling and shooting. The group is working with Mexico-based nonprofit Responsibility, which provides schooling and summer programs for children living near the Tijuana municipal dumps. The children are learning English, so the basketball lessons give them another opportunity to practice their language skills. The Pacific Ridge players served as coaches and coordinators, spending each morning teaching campers basketball basics and hosting fun games like relay races. The Pacific Ridge team spent its afternoons in spirited competition playing

against local youth basketball clubs. Pacific Ridge Basketball Coach Chris Burman called the games highly competitive. “There have been some really close games,” he said. “It’s great for our players to spend time together and try something that’s totally unique.” In addition to giving the team a chance to practice basketball over the summer, the trip gives students the

opportunity to connect with communities in a different country. Coach Burman, who is also a Spanish teacher at Pacific Ridge, was able to connect with youth basketball leaders in the community, thanks to ties to the area. Many teachers at Pacific Ridge utilize connections, around the world, to help students expand their global outlook each year. The youth basketball

camp isn’t the first time the Firebirds have jumped into team service work. Each year, the basketball team volunteers at Carlsbad’s La Posada de Guadalupe homeless shelter. In the winter, they provide a meal and partner with other Pacific Ridge School service learning groups to put on a performance. This is the second year the basketball team hosted basketball clinics in Mexico.

BK Cellars sets bar for urban wineries taste of wine frank mangio


rban wineries are a late-blooming dynamic part of the total wine scene. The distinguishing characteristic is that they sell one brand of wine, their own, in a retail setting, usually a neighborhood shopping or warehouse setting. Recently, these wineries, now up to 12 in San Diego County, gathered for public events in San Diego and Escondido for a “Sip the City” celebration. Their motto is “Grapes from the Country, Wine Made in the City.” San Diego Urban Wineries was founded in 2013 to showcase the unique varietals and blends they offer. Joe and Dania James are an important part of this growing group of winemakers in an urban setting. To really know how determined and possessed they are with a love of winemaking, I need to take you back to Oct. 6, 2016. They, like other urban wine proprietors, will go many miles out of their way to find the best wine grape varietals to offer to their guests and customers. They love Tempranillo, the most popular of the Spanish wines, with a thick skin, black coloring, low alcohol for a red with good acidity. When it’s made well and properly, it can soar to the top of any red wine lover’s list. James had a sense of Tempranillo’s potential when he discovered Pomar Junction Vineyards in Paso Robles. Shortly after the

2016 harvest, he and his wife Dania drove all night with empty “macro-bins” that they would load up early the next morning with the harvested grapes. Shortly after, the crushing, fermentation and barreling began. Five barrels of the Tempranillo are awaiting bottling sometime next year. I attended a barrel tasting session at BK. It was an all-barrel drawn tasting containing a 2015 and 2016 Syrah from nearby Valley Center, a 2014 and 2016 Cab Franc from Temecula and the Tempranillo from Paso Robles. He also had a very nice bottled Fume Blanc. James will have his work cut out for him when harvest rolls around soon and it will be time to pick the varietals for 2019’s bottling. “I am concerned about the heavy rainy season we had earlier in the year,” he cautioned. “Some grapes may have high water content.” Other reds already in bottles just released and tasting delicious include: a Paso Robles GSM Blend

(Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre), a South Coast Cabernet and a Paso Robles Pablo’s Tinto, a blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet. BK Cellars has a thriving wine club with special discounts and events.

Solana Beach council approves 3 new public art sites By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — Temporary public art will be coming to three new locations, which council members approved at the July 12 meeting, but what the pieces will look like remains to be seen. From a list of 25 sites recommended by the Public Arts Commission, City Council in June 2008 selected five “with the intent to really start slow, manage the program, gauge the success before potentially expanding,” Dan King, assistant city manager, said. Since then two spots have been claimed for permanent art. “Yoga Tree” was so popular the city purchased the piece in 2013 for $8,000 so it could remain indefinitely at the corner of Highland Drive and Sun Valley Road. Additionally, the city granted a request from the Santa Fe Hills Homeown-


Odd Hobbies The Wall Street Journal reported in June on a small group of enthusiasts who participate in the esoteric sport of container spotting -- discovering and documenting unusual shipping containers. Spotting a distinctive box "is analogous to the satisfaction that bird-watchers get from spotting a very rare breed of bird," noted Matt Hannes, who maintains the Intermodal Container Web Page. Unusual boxes, known as unicorns, include those with outdated names or logos, or sporting discontinued colors, and those from very small shipping companies. Charles Fox of Indianapolis may be an extreme hobbyist: On his honeymoon, he spent two 12hour days taking photos of a variety of boxes in Belgium. Mrs. Fox was not amused. What We'll Do for Love Brandon Thompson, 35, had just one request before Muskogee, Oklahoma, police officers took him into custody on July 4: "I asked the officer if I could propose." Officers Bob Lynch and Lincoln Anderson agreed and moved Thompson's handcuffs from his back to his front so he could put the ring on Leandria Keith's finger. Thompson had six felony bench warrants out for his arrest, but he told CNN he has been "doing a lot to turn his life around." Keith apparently agrees, as she said "yes." Government in Action • Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, elected a 2-year-old mayor in November -- a dog named Brynneth Pawltro, who won the race by a landslide 1,000 votes. She's the small town's fourth canine mayor, having beaten her chicken, donkey and cat opponents, along with other dogs. Running on a platform of peace, love and understanding, Brynn is very outgoing, according to Bobbi Kayser of

ers Association to install an identifying sign in the median on Santa Helena Drive adjacent to Wells Fargo Bank. With only three remaining temporary locations — the median on Lomas Santa Fe Drive across from Chase Bank; Cliff Street Bridge on North Cedros Avenue; and the San Andreas/Las Banderas intersection — the arts committee asked if more sites could be added, especially given the success of the program. Council members unanimously approved $3,000 to add concrete pads to accommodate new artwork in the pocket park on North Granados Avenue and El Viento Street; at the Tide Park beach access entrance on Pacific Avenue and Solana Vista Drive; and on the southwest corner of San Rodolfo Drive where it intersects with the driveway into the American Assets shopthe Rabbit Hash Historical Society: "There's always inappropriate licking going on." • Natwaina Clark, 33, of Gainesville, Florida, was fired and charged March 28 with larceny and scheming to defraud after it was discovered that she had used city credit cards to steal more than $93,000 from the parks, recreation and cultural affairs department between November 2015 and March 2017. Most notably, Clark spent $8,500 of her take on a Brazilian butt lift procedure.

ping center. Because pieces that will be placed in those locations will be temporary, council approval is not required. However, the Public Arts Commission (PAC) thought it might be helpful to pair the new sites with proposed artwork. While unnecessary, King said it was a good approach because the temporary public art program “has been a little neglected and pieces remained at the locations longer than” the anticipated 12 to 18 months. “The current PAC made it one of their goals to revive the program and do a call to artists to get an inventory of available pieces so the program can get back to its intended purpose of rotating different pieces in,” King said. Thirteen artists submitted sculptures in response. PAC members worked with Ginger Marshall and Judy

Hegenauer, who make up the council subcommittee assigned to work with the commission, to narrow the list. “This is the best of what we got,” Marshall said of the three finalists. Mayor Mike Nichols was less than enthusiastic about the piece assigned to the pocket park on North Granados, which is about eight houses away from his. “Art is very subjective,” he said. “Some people will probably love that. Some people (will) probably think, ‘Oh my gosh.’” He said he envisioned people knocking on his door asking, “What the heck?” “This wasn’t their number one pick for this location,” King said. Marshall said to her it looked “like a piece leftover from 9/11.” Hegenauer said many of the submitted pieces weren’t very colorful, so

they blended with the area and would have been hard to see. “We didn’t have very many that rose to that level of both contrast with the background and good looks,” she said, adding that a cap on how much the city will spend for artwork also makes the process difficult. “Those two factors are going to limit your choices, so I don’t see that we’re going to go to a much higher level of art unless we change those parameters,” she said. “Makes sense,” Nichols said. “You get what you pay for.” Councilwoman Jewel Edson didn’t completely

agree. “I do think that there are young artists that are starving and new that really are very talented that want to get their pieces out there and shown,” she said. “Sometimes you actually do luck into some pretty cool stuff.” The new artwork will not go back to City Council before being installed in the new locations, but will go through the PAC, Marshall and Hegenauer for approval, King said. Going forward, Councilman Dave Zito said he would like to see new locations added east of Interstate 5.
