Father-daughter team modernize play forts By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — A passion for innovation drew a local family together to reinvent the idea of play forts for kids. Father-daughter team, Ed and Luciana Hanley, who are residents of Rancho Santa Fe are the co-founders and inventors of AIR FORT. The idea emerged one night over dinner when Luciana, who used to babysit while attending USD, chatted about how so many kids built a

furniture fort. That was the impetus behind the creative thinking of using a fan to inflate a fabric fort. “We dusted off mom’s old sewing machine and hit the local fabric store. Not long after that, we had a prototype that really performed,” said Ed, noting how they later brought on a sewing company based in National City to assist with the prototypes. “Once we began testing AIR FORTS on kids and parents, we knew we really had something. There was nothing

even close to this on the market for kids.” Ed said what set Air Fort apart from other competitors in the market was virtually no assembly. When inflated with an ordinary household fan, he said, the AIR FORT expanded to 71-inches in diameter and is 50-inches tall. It also has the ability to fit three to five persons. When not in use AIR FORT was TURN TO FORT ON 21

730 Covenant members participate in online internet survey By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association asked its Covenant members to take part in an online internet survey which closed on Nov. 15. Available for three weeks, the survey asked 11 questions which gave the Association a better idea on internet coverage, connectivity

and cell service among its members. Christy Whalen, Association interim manager, indicated they had a good survey response at a Dec. 1 Rancho Santa Fe Association board meeting. The goal was to receive between 600 and 800 surveys and a total of 730 members participated.

“We hit our goal and we think that it’s a pretty representative sample,” she said. Whalen noted that a survey was done a few years ago, but what differed from that one, was the type of information gathered didn’t allow the Association to really accurately assess what was going on in the Cove-

nant regarding internet service and those providing it. “We had a lot of comments which was great information for us, and I know the Tech Committee is studying all those comments,” Whalen said. “Some of the comments were very appreciative of TURN TO INTERNET ON 21

“Don’t be a Hairy Beaver”

RANCHO SANTA FE — A knife-yielding man stabbed a Sheriff’s department K-9 before being shot by responding deputies early Saturday morning. The man, Edward Ray Nett, 50, according to a Sheriff’s department news release, was shot in the torso and taken to a local hospital for treatment. Nett is expected to recover from his wounds. The deputy involved in the shooting has been identified as Sgt. Scott Bligh. Bligh, according to the Sheriff’s department, has been with the department for 21 years and is assigned to the North Coastal Station in Encinitas. According to a Sheriff’s department news release, deputies from the North Coastal Station responded to a report of a person yelling and the sounds of items breaking in front of 6012 Paseo Delicias in the community of Rancho Santa Fe just before 5:30 a.m. The suspect yelled at deputies that he was going to stab them. In an attempt to take the suspect into custody with the minimum amount

of force, deputies launched pepper balls at the suspect and deployed a Sheriff’s K-9 named Banjer. The pepper balls had no effect, and Banjer was stabbed under the left eye. Deputies recovered Banjer and he was rushed to a local animal hospital for emergency surgery. Nett then broke into a nearby apartment where he confronted the resident and held them at knife point for a short time. The resident was able to break free of the suspect and run into the bathroom and lock the door. Nett yelled to deputies who were outside, that he had just, “slit the throat” of the victim. As deputies prepared to enter the apartment to rescue the victim, the suspect stepped outside and again confronted the deputies with the knife. One of the deputies fired approximately four times, striking Nett in the torso. Deputies took him into custody and began to render first aid until paramedics could arrive. The resident of the apartment was found unhurt, inside the bathroom. Banjer underwent successful surgery and is now resting comfortably. He is expected to make a full recovery, the news release reported. At the time of the shooting, Nett was on active parole for violently resisting law enforcement officers in 2015. Once Nett is able to be released from the hospital, he will be booked into jail on multiple felony charges.

Gaspar unseats Roberts in Board of Supervisor race By Steve Puterski

REGION — Nearly a month after Election Day, Encinitas Mayor Kristin Gaspar is victorious in her campaign to unseat incumbent Dave Roberts for the District 3 seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. With 2,000 ballots left to be counted, Roberts conceded to Gaspar last week. Gaspar trailed Roberts on election night by 3 percent, but as absentee and provisional ballots were counted, Gaspar closed the gap and took the lead last week.

“I’m incredibly proud of the campaign we ran and so grateful to the many people who helped me raise money, walk precincts and put up signs and get our message out,” said Gaspar, the first elected mayor of Encinitas and the first candidate to defeat an incumbent on the Board of Supervisors in 32 years. Supervisor Roberts called Supervisor-elect Gaspar Monday to offer his congratulations and graciously offered his assistance in the transition. “I ran on a platform of fiscal accountability, support for public safety, and addressing our inadequate mental health programs and exploding homeless crisis,” said Gaspar. “There will be a lot of change at the County in the next four years and I’m looking forward to getting to work on those issues and make a difference for our taxpayers.” Gaspar will be officially sworn in Jan. 2, 2017. Roberts, meanwhile, sent out a statement to his supporters thanking them for all their contributions. “I called Kristin to congratulate her and offer my sincere help in transitioning the office to her between now and early January when she takes office,” Roberts said. “I want to convey my gratitude for your friendship, dedication, support, patience and encouragement as we have closely watched the daily results as more than 226,000 ballots were counted in the campaign for San Diego County Supervisor. “I am so proud and grateful to have been given the honor of serving as your county supervisor. I am looking forward to continuing to work to fulfill our vision for a prosperous San Diego County that protects our quality of life today and for future generations.” Jason Roe, Gaspar’s campaign consultant, said it was a long road, but the mail and provisional ballots eventually tipped her way, bucking previous trends. He said there was no way to anticipate if Gaspar could overcome Roberts’ lead, especially since he had a margin of more than 2,000 votes after election night. Nevertheless, the outstanding returns came in heavily for Gaspar. “There were a lot more Republican absentees dropped off as opposed to TURN TO SUPERVISOR ON 20

RANCHO SANTA FE — A recent special event hosted by the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild gave attendees the opportunity to hear about the history and current research from both Alzheimer’s San Diego and Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital. Amy Abrams of Alzheimer’s San Diego spoke during the talk, providing a history of Alzheimer’s disease, the importance of continued research of the disease and the local San Diego research efforts. According to the presentation, Alzheimer’s was the most common type of dementia contributing to roughly 70 to 80 percent of dementia cases. While the cause is still uncertain, researchers have honed in on plaques and tangles as its lead emphasis. Currently, it’s estimated that 62,000 individuals living in San Diego County have Alzheimer’s and roughly 150,000 people are caring for those with this disease. Also covered was the need for more research funding and volunteers to take part in clinical trials. According to Alzheimer’s San Diego, current clinical trials underway in San Diego County include Pacific Research Network, Synergy Research Centers, Sharp Healthcare Clinical Research, Excell Research, The Research Centers of Southern California, UC

steps of enrollment in these investigational studies. She also talked about how they varied in terms of the age of candidates and types of investigational medicines. While research was covered in the presentation, Abrams reminded everyone that the mission of Alzheimer’s San Diego was to provide education, support and programs for those with diagnosed with the disease, their families and caregivers.

Power to the people By Celia Kiewit

My vote was not based on fear and anger. I made an informed vote against the same old same old progressive hopey-changey propaganda cum status quo. Specific to Encinitas, let me elaborate on the mess we’re in and how housing and immigration are related: It is not hateful, racist, or bigoted to favor law and order over anarchy, jobs over welfare, border security over anything goes, and an objection to refugees coming here. We have a sovereign right and responsibility to monitor our borders. Keep in mind that Jimmy Carter banned immigration from Iran during his presidency.

Next election: Get set for a new voting system California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


f you voted this fall in a neighborhood garage or the clubhouse of a park or a school auditorium, remember the experience well. It may not be repeated anytime soon. If you saw American flags flying at your precinct-polling place, that sight may also disappear. A whole new election system is about to begin in California, complete with “vote centers” and a big expansion of early balloting. The new system will start phasing in 2018 in 14 counties and should be operative by 2020 everywhere in the state. One thing for sure, losing candidates and those who expect to lose will have new fodder for the “rigged election” cry taken up so vocally this fall by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. With more mail-in ballots involved than ever before, same-day voter registration and personnel in place to provide language assistance, charges of fraud will be common at least while the new system is being broken in. The hope behind the new system, pushed hard by Democratic Secretary of State Alex Padilla and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, is to increase voter turnout drastically. After low-turnout disappointed officials in 2014 and the off-year-elections of 2013 and 2015, they began casting about for changes. The new system will deliver mail-in ballots to every registered voter in the 28 days before the actual Election Day, aiming to end any need to vote in a single place on just one day. “We’ve got to…implement a new voting model,” said Democratic state Sen. Ben Allen of Santa Monica, who sponsored the new sys-

tem in the Legislature. “Our current system has failed, as our voter turnout rates continued to decline toward record lows.” Turnout in both the 2014 primary (25 percent of registered voters) and that year’s November general election

locations. But expect them to be placed in public buildings where there’s either no rent or low rent. The politicians behind this system claim it will provide far greater flexibility than longstanding precinct polling places. “It’s time to modernize the voting process,” said Democratic state Sen. Robert Hertzberg of Los Angeles, a co-sponsor. “We need to provide the same convenience and flexibility (people) have in other areas of their lives. You can stream a movie or deposit a check with your phone any time, but without this (change), people still have to arrange their busy schedules to get to a polling place on a single day and that has hurt turnout.” Only time will tell whether all this actually spurs more people to vote. And no one knows whether the inevitable charges of fraud or vote-fixing will have any merit. But the people behind the change are certainly correct about one thing: Turnout had become far too low in recent years, often allowing a small minority of eligible voters to choose the people who make key decisions for everyone.

Water charges As a Rancho Santa Fe resident, I have wondered for years why we are charged disproportionately for our water usage. Has anyone ever considered how many homes are built on three acres in Solana Beach? Our average lot size of three acres contributes toward a more rural area, the freeways less congested, the air quality better, the stores less crowded, the beaches less busy among many other positives for our part of the county. When we buy, we know what our property taxes are, and will have knowledge of what they will be in the future. We know what our mortgage will be, and have knowledge of what that will be in the future. However, paying such a premium on the higher units of water being used is not fair without determining how many homes could be build on the same size property in Solana Beach, and setting the baseline number of units allowed before paying the higher rates.

The new system will start phasing in 2018 in 14 countries and should be operative by 2020 everywhere in the state. (42 percent) was at record lows, making Padilla and the Legislature a bit desperate to push numbers up. So instead of voters needing to sign up to receive mail-in ballots for every election, from now they will go to everyone automatically. Never mind the tradition of the secret ballot; everyone from labor unions to employers to neighborhood groups is now free to hold ballot-marking parties before Election Day. This has actually been true since mail-in voting became common in the late 1970s, and there have never been charges it led to mass fraud or coerced voting for particular candidates or causes. But such outcries may arise now. The guinea pigs for the new system will be voters in Calaveras, Inyo, Madera, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Sacramento, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Shasta, Sierra, Sutter and Tuolumne counties, with in-person voting at centers spotted around each county weeks before Election Day. Voters will also be able to drop off ballots at those centers, rather than mailing them in. Counties pushed for this, partly as a cost-cutting measure. The fewer polling places, the lower the cost of an election. But counties

As the EU is falling apart, the Dutch, Swedes, Danes, and the French, just to name a few, are beginning to rethink their open door policies. Angela Merkel recently voiced regrets, “If I could, I would turn back time … to better prepare the entire German government and everyone else in a position of responsibility for the situation that hit us largely unprepared at the end of summer 2015.” People who don’t like us are securing footholds into the fabric of our nation.

The water company should use the maximum baseline of 15 HCF and multiply by the number of homes that would be built on the same size property in Solana Beach. For example, if there are six homes per acre in Solana Beach, that equates to 18 homes on a three acre lot in RSF — therefore, the 15 HCF baseline multiplied by 18 homes would allow a 270 HCF baseline for the RSF property before higher rate brackets kick in. This is what is fair. This is what RSF residents have a right, in my opinion, to pursue legally. That would not only be fair, but would also show the appreciation for all the benefits that Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch provide our neighbors. Curt Jaeger, Rancho Santa Fe Internet prices I’d like to comment on Mr. (Jon) Compal of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association’s article (Will cities increase the cost of Internet

services? Nov. 18). He states that online services such as Netflix, Hulu and other will increase their billing. Cities don’t have the legal right to do so, according to the Internet Tax Freedom Act. Obama has already given control of the Internet to the U.N. Facebook’s (Mark) Zuckerberg favors the censorship that will be instituted by the PRC. China’s hackers at the Beijing Institute of Technology are compromising our cybersecurity. Some sales taxation in states like South Carolina is OK. As the prices for cable bundling are too high. Taxpayers must approve higher taxes and cities need to find other sources of revenue. Mr. (Donald) Trump is Internet savvy and supports freedom of cyberspace. The alternative media was very helpful in helping him to get elected. Now the mainstream media and (Barack) Obama want to label them fake news and censor them. Mark A. Peter, Solana Beach

Holiday traditions continue at the Country Friends Consignment Shop By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Shopping for the holidays at the Country Friends Consignment Shop is always a special place. Aside from shoppers finding the perfect gift, sale proceeds go to the many San Diego County human care agencies it helps support. According to its consignment manager, Yvette Letourneau, people are giving back when they shop there. “There’s a lot of meaning and support behind each purchase,” Letourneau said. According to Letourneau, it was her goal to bring the neighboring communities around the Covenant to shop there such as Fairbanks Ranch, Cielo and The Bridges. In reaching out to them, they have responded favorably and kindly, she said. During the early portion of the holiday season, Letourneau noted how a group of shoppers generally visit to find hostess gifts, which are already packaged for convenience that they can bring to a party, such as candle sets. Many others flow through the shop for holiday gift buying such as serving pieces, jewelry lines, fascinators and more. Some of these items are

also created by its community members. “We’ve just started carrying Aimee’s Boutique for fascinators. Aimee Meals just launched this wonderful line of fascinators,” she said, noting how they are wonderful to wear throughout the year. “They are very versatile.” Jewelry created by Eliza Friedman, the founder of “Jewels with a Purpose,” can also be located at The Country Friends shop. Letourneau shared how this line has been in their shop for a couple of years and has been able to “give back” a significant amount with proceeds going to the charities it supports. Known in the nonprofit world, Jewels with a Purpose, offers something for everybody with a midrange price point. Pieces can be worn for everyday use or cocktail attire. Another popular jewelry line is Spirited Muse by Betty Nader which is all handmade and hammered out. “There’s not one piece that’s alike,” said Letourneau, adding how Spirited Muse pieces can also be found in Solana Beach. “It’s wonderful to support her jewelry because her family supports The TURN TO CONSIGNMENT ON 20

KAABOO improvements announced Spending Thanksgiving

By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — The third annual KAABOO Del Mar is more than nine months away, but organizers of the three-day entertainment and arts festival are already announcing improvements based on lessons learned from this year’s event, held over three days in September at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. At least partially in response to an incident that resulted in a hovering police helicopter, some of the venues and stages will be relocated for better accessibility. On Sept. 17, when two popular concerts ended almost simultaneously, crowds from both performances tried to enter anther show. The crowd became “agitated” and one law enforcement officer ended up on the ground, which kicked off a police response, a KAABOO representative said during a presentation at the Nov. 15 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors meeting. Fairgrounds officials who were at the event that night said the Sheriff’s Department “aired on the side of overreacting.” They said the call was retracted but it was too late and a helicopter and additional deputies were deployed. KAABOO will continue working with local law enforcement and fairground security, but the

ow did Turkey Day treat you this year? Surprisingly, mine left me overwhelmed with joy. Ostensibly, my Thanksgiving break was something of a somber occasion. I rented a truck and drove up to Northern California to celebrate with my parents, as well as haul back many of my prized possessions from my childhood. My parents still live in the home they purchased more than 20 years ago, when I was in my early teens and attending high school. I often joke that my childhood bedroom is a museum to my early years, and should stay that way forever for posterity’s sake. No more. My parents are currently renovating their home, and so they needed me to haul away many of the things I remember fondly from my childhood, and store them in my own garage back in Carlsbad. Old baby clothes and school uniforms. The

black belt I earned in tae kwon do. Toys and playsets. Cherished memories. They asked if I wanted any of their old furniture; I immediately pointed to their large, heavy formal dining table, that’s currently used as a work/laptop station. When I was younger, that table was used for Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners, for bringing our family together for special occasions. It’s been in our family possession for about 40 years — my parents purchased it from a family friend. I don’t know what I’ll do with it — but I want to one day have a family of my own to share it with. As is often the case, my parents needed help with projects around the house. Over the course of two days, my Dad and I built a large cement bed for a new external gas tank, and demolished an old wooden outdoor deck with mostly a crowbar and hammers (all in the pouring rain). I’ve never done anything like demo work before. I highly recommend it for those interested in getting a workout in, or want to experience the thrill of destroying something to build something better.

Design team reveals scaled-back Watermark plans small talk

By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Guided more by community input than the housing element, the Watermark Del Mar development team created an additional design featuring 38 units, 10 fewer than the previous proposal. It is the fourth iteration of the multifamily project slated for a 2.37acre vacant lot at the intersection of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Drive and one of two options that will be presented for approval. “The 48-unit project is still on the table as proposed,” Kitchell Vice President Don Glatthorn said. “We had a wide range of responses to the 48-unit proposal that ranged from enthusiastic support to active opposition. “There were many people who loved it and told us they thought that project could go forward, which is why we’re keeping it as an option,” he added. “And there were other people that thought it was too dense. So we really, sincerely reached out with the revised design to the people who were not happy with our first 48-unit proposal.” In addition to adding more trees, changing the building styles, creating more open space and increasing setbacks, the reduced version has a new affordable housing component. The 48-unit option provides seven affordable units, with four gifted in perpetuity to a nonprofit benefit corporation. In the new plan there will be six affordable, with three gifted. The project is included in the city’s state-approved housing element as a way to meet its affordable housing

requirements. The design team, which includes Kitchell, Watermark DM LP and San Dieguito Land Partners, has been working on the project for about five years. It started with 57 units and has been reduced based on community input. In creating the most recent design, which started about 10 months ago, Glatthorn said his team divided feedback from residents into categories and subgroups and addressed each one. “We said we weren’t going to let density drive this thing anymore,” he said. “We’re going to have the community concerns drive our design and that’s where it ended up. We didn’t decide to design a 38-unit project.

“We decided to take those areas of concern into account and create a project we think is an outstanding design that is not driven by the housing element density goal of 20 to 25 units to the acre,” Glatthorn added. He said people were “uncomfortable” with that level of density, including “one influential person” who thought it shouldn’t exceed the current highest permitted zoning density, which is 17.6 units per acre. The 38-unit plan has 16 units per acre, with 2.2 residences per building and a floor area ratio of .60. The 48unit proposal has 3.7 homes per building and a .67 FAR. Lot coverage went from .45 percent to .39 percent. “We said, ‘Let’s design the project and then count units and see

where it comes up,’” Glatthorn said. “ We wanted to design the right project that responds to these community concerns and comments we heard.” Some of those concerns were a lack of open space, building coverage, insufficient guest parking, traffic and noise. Most buildings are now duplex configurations with light and air on three of four sides. One building closest to the existing neighborhood on Heather Lane to the south was eliminated. “So that improves the livability and makes it a more open-feeling project,” Glatthorn said. “Creating more open space allowed us to take the air TURN TO WATERMARK ON 20

Two Pit Bulls that mauled horse located; will be euthanized By Tony Cagala

SAN MARCOS — Officials with the County’s Animal Control unit said they were confident on the whereabouts of two Pit Bulls that were believed to have mauled a horse on Nov 26. Steve MacKinnon, chief of humane law enforcement, said on Nov. 30 that Animal Control officers with a police officer were headed to a location they believed the dogs to be. On Dec. 1, the San Diego Humane Society released a statement saying that the dogs were located and that the owners “relinquished both dogs San Diego Humane Society last night for humane euthanasia.”

Animal Control received a tip to the location from the public. The attack, which occurred at a residence on Fulton Road, led to the death of a 15-year-old horse named Smokey. After the attack Animal Control officers and Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and searched the area. MacKinnon said the search revealed no leads on the dogs. Several hours later, a good Samaritan called Animal Control saying she had found two dogs that were “tired and wet,” MacKinnon said. While not certain they were the dogs in the attack, though MacKinnon said they were fairly sure they were, the responding offi-

cer brought the dogs to an animal hospital for treatment at approximately 1 a.m. on Sunday. However, there was some miscommunication with the responding officer that there was a hold on the two animals, MacKinnon explained, and the dogs in question were released to their owners after receiving treatment. The owners, according to MacKinnon, have received a number of visits from Animal Control with the most recent visit prior to this incident back in January. “Prior to that, in previous years, we’ve had multiple contacts with them,” MacKinnon said.

REGION — A series of highly anticipated rail, freeway, pedestrian and bicycle projects in the Interstate 5 corridor kicked off unofficially last week, as Caltrans and the San Diego Association of Governments held a ceremonial groundbreaking to celebrate the start of the projects. “Build NCC” is the name of the first package of improvements that are part of the 40-year North Coast Corridor program, a plan that took nearly a decade to approve. It is a $700 million slate of projects that includes the widening of I-5 with the addition of a single express lane in each direction between state Route 78 and Lomas San-

ta Fe Drive, double tracking the rail line across the San Elijo and Batiquitos lagoons and the construction of bicycle and pedestrian bridges and connected trails, as well as a wide range of wetlands and lagoon restoration projects. The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by 2020. Ultimately, the $6.5 billion North Coast Corridor Program will stretch 27 miles from La Jolla to Oceanside. SANDAG and Caltrans are hosting an open house from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Dec. 6 at San Dieguito Academy, where the public can learn more about the projects and discuss the project with staff members from both agencies.


oliday cookies from friends — they are utterly divine, but can be a bit treacherous. Either way, they make you feel loved. If you are lucky, you get one or two lovely plates, heaped with them, from friends. If you are very, very lucky, you don’t have to eat them in front of those wonderful, well-meaning friends. And if you are truly blessed, you don’t bite down on a chocolate chip that turns out to be a raisin. P-tooey. My heart leaps for joy when I see iced sugar cookies or dream bars. It gets tricky, though, when you are presented with a plate of lovingly baked confections that you just don’t fancy, yet must immediately taste and rave over. I’ve done it, but I must summon all my proper upbringing to control my gag reflex. I don’t doubt for a minute that others have done the same with cookies I have lovingly baked and shared. Nothing defines one’s individuality quite like one’s taste in cookies. I was raised by a superlative baker whose holiday was never complete without a full day of cookie baking. Cookies in my house were never store-bought and they were never burned. I really miss them. But I will also never willingly or knowingly eat a raisin, dark chocolate, walnuts, coconut or candied fruit. This can make cookie exchanges something of a minefield. Somehow I still manage to find enough fattening delicacies on which to feast. For instance, there are oatmeal cookies and then there are oatmeal cookies. They are TURN TO SMALL TALK ON 20

The Shoppes at Carlsbad ready for new tenants By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The Shoppes at Carlsbad renovation is moving ahead full steam. In late November, Pizza Press opened its first location in San Diego County at The Shoppes, according to Rouse Properties, who owns the mall. In addition, the New York-based company announced last week the signing of three new tenants, which will move in once renovations are completed next year. They include the world’s largest fashion retailer, Zara, The Cheesecake Factory and Yard House. “Our team is thrilled to welcome the addition of some of the best retail and dining brands in the nation to The Shoppes at Carlsbad,” Rouse Properties

CEO Brian Harper said in a statement. “Our goal has always been to elevate the overall consumer experience and give the residents of Carlsbad a world-class retail, dining and entertainment destination.” The center is currently undergoing a multi-phase renovation that includes comprehensive cosmetic upgrades to the two-story, approximately one million square-foot center’s interiors and streetscapes, which will be complete at the end of 2017. The aggressive redevelopment will include the addition of new top-tier, first to market retail, dining and entertainment tenants, according to Rouse, who bought the mall from Westfield Corporation in 2015. Zara, the world’s largest fashion retailer, will

occupy a 30,000 square-foot retail space on the center’s lower level near Dave & Busters, which will open in early 2017. The Cheesecake Factory, known for its extensive menu, generous portions and desserts, will open a restaurant also on the lower level, across from Zara. 
 “Since opening our first restaurant in Beverly Hills more than 35 years ago, The Cheesecake Factory has become known for creating delicious, memorable experiences for millions of guests around the country, and we are so pleased to be opening in The Shoppes at Carlsbad next year,” said David Overton, founder, chairman and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated, in a press release. Yard House’s 10,000 square-foot location will be street facing on the sec-

ond level adjacent to Regal Cinemas. The restaurant will feature a selection of taps dedicated to local and regional craft beers and original artwork by Orange County-based contemporary artist Jerome Gastaldi, customized to reflect the coastal locale. 
 The Shoppes at Carlsbad is currently home to more than 100 retail options, including anchor tenants Macy’s and Regal Cinemas, as well as specialty retailers like Victoria’s Secret, Vans Shoes, 24-Hour Fitness Super Sport, Panera Bread to name a few. The redevelopment of the center includes the addition of brand-new retail, dining and entertainment tenants, to be announced in the coming months. In addition, current tenants will renovate their existing stores.

Renovations on center’s restrooms to begin this month By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Renovation of the interior restroom at Powerhouse Community Center will begin this month after council members at the Dec. 5 meeting unanimously awarded a $71,745 contract to Ferguson Construction. The restroom access will be remodeled to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. In addition to other aesthetic improvements, the project includes upgrading partitions, countertops and plumbing fixtures. Ferguson was the only contractor to respond to a request for proposals by the October deadline. The total project cost is estimated to be $85,500, which includes a $7,000 contingency, $4,000 for construction management and $2,755 for the design and bid documents. Friends of the Powerhouse committed $40,000 for the renovation. The remaining funds are available in the city’s operating and capital budget for the current fiscal year. Construc-

San Diego Unified School District connected to fast, reliable network Ninety two San Diego Unified School District schools now have access to a 175-gigabit network as part of an agreement with Cox Business. As part of the agreement, Cox Business built out 54 miles of fiber in San Diego. A total of 189 schools in the district are now connected to a fast, reliable Ethernet network through Cox Business that will enable all types of digital learning, not only inside the classroom, but also distance learning between schools and organizations outside of the district. “San Diego Unified students already have access to some of the best technology in education today, but as anyone who has ever left their cell phone service area knows, the best technology is only as good as the internet service that connects you to the world,” said Cindy Marten, superintendent of San Diego Unified School District. “Thanks to this partnership with Cox Business, our students will have access to enterprise class Wi-Fi service, allowing them to collaborate with their teachers and peers in amazing new ways.”

The network that Cox Business has built for the district is the largest fiber project the company has undertaken for a single customer in San Diego to date. “The network that we’ve designed for the school district is unique in its construction, the large number of sites being connected, and the high bandwidth capacity that is being delivered,” said Larry Coval, vice president of Cox Business in San Diego. “We’ve built a network that has the bandwidth to serve the district’s needs for its teachers and students now and in the future.” Serving more than 130,000 students, from preschool through grade 12, San Diego Unified School District is the second largest district in California, with a diverse student population representing more than 15 ethnic groups and more than 60 languages and dialects. Cox Business is the commercial division of Cox Communications that serves business customers of all sizes, school districts, medical facilities, hotels, local government and the military.

love lists. They have a way of making a chaotic world orderly — or at least give the illusion of order. They also illustrate the connection of things that might otherwise have no relation to each other. Lists can motivate, too. For some, there’s great satisfaction in checking off items on a list, which gives a sense of accomplishment. I confess to being a list-maker, mostly because I wouldn’t know what to do or where I’m supposed to be if I didn’t have my list (and throw in a calendar, too). The travel industry loves lists, too, and I receive several each day. These lists often are a vehicle for promoting something, someone or a destination — a way to get noticed.

Hitting their peak, Band of Horses corral their performances By Alan Sculley

Band Of Horses singer/ guitarist Ben Bridwell can promise a couple of things to people who come to see the group in concert this fall. First off, expect the unexpected. “One thing that I do like about this band is, I don’t know that we’ve ever played the same set list twice,” Bridwell said in a recent phone interview. “Every day brings a new opportunity or a new vibe of whatever town you’re in or whatever the venue is. I feel like we try to pay really close attention to that. Even I’ll research set lists from previous visits to make sure it’s not like (an earlier show) and we don’t open up with the same song as last time.” The other thing Bridwell can say with ceartainty is that Band Of Horses is the best it’s ever been as a live band. “I feel like we’ve only gotten stronger, as a live band especially,” he said. “We can be powerful and aggressive, and we’ve all grown with each other like that. But we can also be nuanced and a bit sweet. So I feel like we’re at peak form.” The newly released “Why Are You OK,” is the third album from the current lineup. Over the course of making the first two Band Of Horses albums — “2006’s “Everything All the Time” and 2007’s “Cease to Begin” — Bridwell cycled through a half dozen musicians – creating the impression that Band Of Horses might essentially be a solo project operating under a band name. Then the next two albums — 2010’s “Infinite Arms” and 2013’s “Mirage Rock” — poked plenty of holes in that notion. On “Infinite Arms,” keyboardist Ryan Monroe and guitarist Tyler Ramsey each brought in a song, while Bridwell and Ramsey co-wrote the tune, “Older.”

And the song “Blue Beard” was credited to all five band members (including drummer Creighton Barrett). Bassist Bill Reynolds, meanwhile, stepped up on “Mirage Rock,” earning co-writing credits on five songs, while Ramsey pitched in on a pair of tunes. This was exactly what Bridwell had wanted to see happen when he formed Band Of Horses in 2004, shortly after the demise of his previous group, Clarissa’s Weird. “I know my limits, and I don’t seem to get much better with my playing abilities,” he said. “I mean, I can write songs, but my playing ability has never really matured. I’ve always known that I need a lot of help. (Finding) that great help with talent and attitude, ambition without cockiness, finding that right balance, it just took awhile. But I certainly found those fellows.” For “Why Are You OK,” though, Bridwell was ready to change up the creative approach, and he took more control over the songwriting process. “I wanted to return a bit to home base. So I did spend more time going inward and not sharing as much as I possibly did the previous years,” Bridwell said. “I talked about it with the guys and they were with me every step of the way. But I’d say they kind of got that, too. They were like ‘Oh, let him scratch his back a little, scratch his itch, and then we can kind of fill in where we’re needed.’” And the beauty of this band is no one has a defined role. Anybody can step up or sit back depending on what the song calls for.” Bridwell also went into the new album with a decidedly different idea for how he wanted “Why Are You OK” to sound. “Mirage Rock” was recorded mostly live in the studio and had a fairly lean sound. Brid-

well didn’t want to go down that path this time. “‘Mirage Rock’ was like a, OK, just play them live, sing them live and be done. I wanted to overthink this one,” he said. “I wanted a denser sound. I wanted it to be more lush. I wanted it to be poured over.” That feel is immediately apparent on “Why Are You OK,” as it opens with Dull Times/The Moon,” a two– part epic that starts out lush and dreamy before shifting into assertive and gritty guitar rock for “The Moon” portion of the song. The rest of “Why Are You OK” falls between those two stylistic extremes. “Solemn Oath” builds from a folky start into an expansive rocker. “Hag” is cinematic, with a beautiful synthesizer riff surrounding the song’s vulnerable lyrics and downright pretty vocal melody. Elsewhere, Band Of Horses rock crisply on the catchy “Throw My Mess,” “Casual Party” and “In A Drawer.” Bridwell thinks the new songs fit well with older Band Of Horses’ material, and there could be some surprises by the time the group plays a series of radio shows in December. “Once you have those extended (runs of) theater shows or club shows, you can

try new stuff at sound check every day,” he said. “That’s extended to covers and reworking different versions of songs. I think this is going to be a really great opportunity for this part of the cycle to really stretch out a bit.”

I could, but there were moments of weakness and it was always somewhat awkward walking by Annel & Drew’s Kitchen with a pizza in hand, so I took to taking the long walk around the market to avoid the scornful looks from Annel and Drew. I jest of course but that’s what it felt like to me. During this time, An-


he timing of this column is somewhat ironic given the recent normalization of relations with Cuba and the passing of Fidel Castro, but that’s about as political as Lick the Plate is going to get. is This about one of their many exports, the Cuban sandwich and the recent loss of a local favorite. I’ve waxed poetic many times in LTP about the Cuban sandwich from Annel & Drew’s Kitchen at the Leucadia Farmers Market. My first infatuated gushing love letter was a 2010 column devoted primarily to this newfound love. It really was like a new romance, albeit one that was limited to a weekly Sunday morning fling. That fling soon developed into a fullon obsession and as odd as a Cuban sandwich for Sunday brunch may sound, it was the beginning of a longterm affair. One of the great pleasures I derive from Lick the Plate is sharing new discoveries and I spread the word about this amazing sand-

nel and Drew expanded their menu to include other temptations like their amazing breakfast sandwich and always amazing salads and Spiedie’s, which have been there since the beginning as well. I had a hunch that the general market-going public did not share my obsession with the Cuban and sure enough, over the past few months there were Sundays where it was missing from the menu. My initial reaction was denial, and I was creating scenarios in my head that we were just taking a break, and the Cuban would surprise me, popping back into my life when I least expected it. All would be good and we would renew the relationship fresh, with no distractions. That false hope was further squashed when my son Quinn, who now works with Annel and TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 20

Torrey Pines Golf Course, Tom Weiskopf unveil renovated North Course REGION — Following a comprehensive nine-month, $12.6 million renovation, the North Course at Torrey Pines Golf Course has reopened to an eagerly awaiting golfing public. Originally designed by William F. Bell and opened in 1957, the renovated North Course now stands to rival the popularity of the world famous South Course, host of the U.S. Open in 2008 and in 2021. The North and South courses, owned and maintained by the City, are both public courses, and the North averages approximately 82,000 rounds of play per year. “We are excited to reopen the North Course to the global golf community,”

said Herman Parker, Director of Park and Recreation for the City of San Diego. “Torrey Pines is a world-renowned golf facility, and we are pleased to be able to offer two outstanding courses, each with their own unique characteristics. Now no San Diego golf excursion is complete without playing both the North and South at Torrey.” Course architect and golfing great Tom Weiskopf visited Torrey Pines this week to officially unveil the renovated North Course, a project that holds a special place in his golf career and design portfolio. His first career win came at Torrey Pines at the 1968 Andy Williams-San Diego Open,

predecessor to the current Torrey Pines. on a piece of property that “It’s really special,” amazing doesn’t happen Farmers Insurance Open played every January at Wesikopf said. “And to work very often. The sheer beauty of the place always captivates me. Now people can look forward to playing 36 incredible holes at Torrey Pines by playing the North and the South.” While the North Course maintains a similar feel to its original design, there were some significant changes. The number of bunkers has been reduced from 59 to 41, and the average green size increased from 4,500 square feet to 6,400. All 18 greens were completely reconstructed to United States Golf Association standards, with the existing poa annua grass replaced with 100 percent bent grass — a Tyee 007 blend. The front and back nines were also reversed, allowing golfers spectacular ocean and canyon views as they finish their rounds. Carts paths have been replaced, and irrigation has been improved. Greens were fitted with an advanced SubAir system that pulls moisture out of the surface and can cool greens during hot weather. The work was completed on time

and on budget. “Switching the nines is very significant because the back nine is so iconic with its incredible views,” Weiskopf said. “The larger greens allow for more pin placements and more variety, and we’ve taken out bunkers but kept others that are strategically placed.” Weiskopf’s renovations have successfully struck a balance between providing ample challenge for professional and scratch golfers and keeping the course playable for amateurs and casual golfers of all abilities. The North Course now features five sets of tees, allowing it to play as long as 7,258 yards or as short as 5,197. In total, the North has been lengthened nearly 200 yards from the tips. “I tried to bring the North Course into the 21st century,” Weiskopf said. “It was built in the 1950s, and nothing of significance had ever been done to it. Everything we did in the redesign was to bring it up to current standards. It’s now a top-ofthe-line golf course.” A winner of 16 tournaments during his nearly 30-year career on the PGA Tour, Weiskopf owns one major championship trophy (The Open Championship, 1973) and finished third or better in six other majors. Housed within the city of San Diego Park and Recreation Department, the city’s Golf Division manages and operates Mission Bay, Balboa Park and Torrey Pines golf courses. Its mission is to serve patrons and players of all ages and abilities while enhancing their enjoyment of the game by providing a high quality golf experience.

John Paul the Great Catholic University celebrates newest addition By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — The newest addition to John Paul the Great Catholic University was unveiled last week. A sparkling new Student Life Center, at 200 W. Grand Ave., is the latest in a series of renovation projects revitalizing Escondido’s downtown and the university. The landmark brick building used to house the HomeFed Bank branch, but JP Catholic purchased the property in 2015 for $1.1 million. The newly renovated 5,600-square foot building, which JP Catholic President Dr. Derry Connolly calls “the campus living room,” will provide a space for students to

gather and study, and will also house the offices of various student services on the second floor. Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, city council members, various Escondido city officials and the Chamber of Commerce joined the JP Catholic community for the occasion and to express support of the university’s growth. The new student center is just part of the institution’s expansion plans. In January, the school announced a large-scale project to increase enrollment up to 1,200 students. Currently, 300 students are enrolled. Four buildings now dot the small campus in downtown, but a new addition along 2nd Avenue consists

of a 30,000 square-foot building with 100 parking spaces on 1.25 acres. Terry and Barbara Caster donated $1.5 million to the school so it could purchase the building. It also provides space for a dedicated chapel, will add an auditorium for the theology program, which is expected to be the largest in the state by 2020. Other additions include larger classrooms, film sound stages, editing lab, screening room, an acting lab and performance stage. The school moved to Escondido from Scripps Ranch several years ago, which Connolly said was in part due to the possibilities for growth.

based on surveys the overall “mix-perience” experience was positive, with attendees giving it close to four-and-a-half stars out of five. Attendance figures will likely not be released but an estimated 50,000 people attended the 2015 event and officials reported a 70 percent increase in daily attendance this year. About 50 percent of the patrons came from outside San Diego, including people from all 50

states and more than 30 countries. “There is a significant economic benefit,” said Julie Coleman, director of community relations for the event. She said KAABOO generated an estimated $100,000 in sales tax and $63,000 in hotel occupancy tax revenue. The company spent almost $800,000 on staff lodging and meals and employed about 4,000 people.

ing power, fighting proxy wars, and provoking our ships in international waters off the coast of Yemen after we gave them billions of dollars?! At our very own Encinitas Library, illegal immigrants are being taught how to avoid deportation. Who is paying for this?! We have always been a friendly and welcoming community, but if you can’t afford to live here, can’t speak English, don’t have a job, don’t understand and respect our way of life, our Constitution, Judeo-Christian heritage, and our laws, maybe Encinitas isn’t the right place for you. The Housing Element Update, supported by every member of the Encinitas City Council(!), was more deception in the name of affordable housing which put the long and hard-fought battle for Proposition A in serious jeopardy. We voted to save our city and its community character by voting NO on Measure T to defend what

we fought for — holding off the developers and their lobbyists colluding with Sacra-demento to continue paving every inch of the planet! Defeated was a laundry list of developer-friendly policies the city planning staff tried to push through with higher density, increased height, and other changes that are not required by the State. It included no affordable housing, lacked adequate parking, and provided huge profits for developers. Can you imagine the additional traffic?! Thanks to this defeat, we retain control over how, and how fast, Encinitas grows. This is common sense defense of our cherished community quality of life and our peace of mind. We got informed, we were vigilant, and we voted our values. Power to the people!

Maurie Staunton McClees-Brown August 29,2016

Maurie Staunton McClees-Brown quietly and peacefully passed away on August 29 at Brookdale Senior Living in Carlsbad, California. She was 84 and had become increasingly cognitively disabled with dementia. Maurie is predeceased by husband John Fiske Brown who passed away in 2003. She is survived by her four children Peter, Craig, Jeff, Heather and many grandchildren. Maurie was born in Norwalk Connecticut February 6, 1932 to parents John Van Iderstine McClees and Marie Staunton Wood. As a young girl, she grew up in Short Beach, Connecticut – always on the beach and in, and on, the water. The ocean was her first love, her muse, her great escape and always held a special place in her life. Maurie graduated from Branford High School in 1949 and went on to graduate

with Honors from Pratt Institute in New York City. She began her art career as an illustrator of children’s books. She married John Fiske Brown in Branford on May 12, 1951. In 1957, Maurie and John moved their young family to San Diego, California – eventually settling in Del Mar. The beauty of southern California had an immediate impact on Maurie and she soon became an established Del Mar artist. Water colors were her medium – the Pacific Ocean and natural landscape, her favorite subject. Maurie painted the California coast from San Diego to Big Sur from 1957 until she was no longer able. She always seemed to find something new and exciting about it. In between raising a family and painting, Maurie found time to be a Red Cross Swim Director, Chairman of the San Diego Artist Guild, an active environmentalist (long before it was popular), an art director at KPBS San Diego, a docent at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and a tireless advocate of preserving the natural beauty of California. A free spirit always… Her mantra was “Don’t Fence Me In.” God bless you and keep you Mom. We miss you. Donations to her memory can be made to St. Michael’s by-theSea Episcopal Church in Carlsbad, California.

conditioning units off the roofs, which reduces the noise impacts to the neighbors and creates large, more functional courtyard areas.” Although Watermark met the city requirement for guest parking spaces with 12 — or one for every four units — the redesign includes 19 spaces, or one for every two. “People felt because street parking wasn’t available we should exceed the requirement,” he said. The Watermark team also has plans to collaborate with the city and San Diego Gas & Electric to underground the power lines associated with the site. “We’ve also improved the pedestrian experience by eliminating the retaining wall on Jimmy Durante and bringing the slope to the edge of the sidewalk,” Glatthorn said. “We pulled the retaining wall onto the site and will cover that with shrubs and vines so it looks more like a soft, continuous sloping hill versus a hard edge.” The larger plan features nine trees on Jimmy Durante and two on San Dieguito. The redesign has 19 and seven, respectively. Overall five Torrey pines will be trans-



one of the two dogs that had received prior visits is believed to be one of the dogs in the horse attack. The owners, MacKinnon said, have been “less than cooperative,” in the investigation, adding that they’re not facing any charges at this point. Due to the nature of the attack, there was concern for the public’s safety.


67 nonprofits.” Wilson is quick to point out that 2016 still isn’t over. There are days on the calendar for people to make an impact. “In celebration of our 35th anniversary, we’ve been given an opportunity to increase our trusted philanthropic reach with a matching grant for the Community Impact Fund,” she said. “One of our supporters has provided a dollar-for-dollar match up to $35,000 for any donations made to the Community Impact Fund between now and the end of the year.” Wilson wants people to

In addition, she is also committed to law enforcement and rebuild-

On the northeast corner of the lot, the recreation room and pool have been pulled back and there is now only a free-standing single unit there. In response to concerns from residents on Heather Lane, the second floor building mass adjacent to that neighborhood was decreased and the gap between the area and Watermark was increased by 25 feet in one area. Rooftop decks on those buildings were eliminated, as were others in the project. The developers also took out the parking garage access ramp to keep headlights from shining into the neighborhoods. Glatthorn said his team invited residents to view the new alternative privately or at a Dec. 3 workshop in the Del Mar Plaza. He said about 25 people have seen the plans privately.

“So far there’s been a very positive response to the new alternative,” Glatthorn said. “Some who expressed concerns about the 48 say the 38 is an excellent improvement and something they can get behind.” Glatthorn said the lengthy process was not unexpected. “We did not go into this thinking it was going to be easy or that we would win 100 percent support,” he said. “But we made a concerted effort to deliver exceptional options through exceptional design. We could have been done sooner had we not been concerned about getting it exactly right.” Glatthorn said another smaller alternative will not be created. “We are done,” he said. “The original 48-unit proposal provides additional housing opportunities. The 38-unit proposal, we think, more adequately addresses the community comments and input we received. “We think that both of these are really good options for the city,” he added. “We look forward to having the Design Review Board, Planning Commission, City Council and community at large weigh in and tell us which of the two they prefer.”

“Because this was such an unusual attack, it’s unusual for two dogs to attack something as large as a horse,” MacKinnon said. “So the fact that they are willing to do this causes us concern. Could the public be at risk in some way? We just can’t say. But we’re going on the side of caution,” MacKinnon said. Officers had been in the area since Monday searching for the dogs. “This is all-around

an extremely tragic incident and our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected,” the Humane Society statement read. “We’re committed to ensuring the health and safety of all animals, along with the safety of our community residents. The decision to euthanize an animal is never easy to make, and we take this responsibility very seriously. But public safety is the ultimate priority.”

know that the RSF Foundation is not able to do this alone. They are thankful to everyone who has taken part in charitable giving. “We are grateful to our donors and so many in the community who support our work and who have contributed in significant ways to the accomplishments of the last 35 years,” she said. While this line of work has the ability to inspire, Wilson said that “giving back” was something that she learned growing up in her own family. She described it as a normal part of life. “Having now been given the opportunity to assist our board, staff and donors to facilitate purposeful

charitable gifts to worthy nonprofits who are helping the neediest in our community is what makes me look forward to each and every day,” Wilson said. With an eye to 2017, Wilson said how their staff has initiated a quarterly goal by participating in community service projects as a way to connect and take part in the good work that these organizations do. “In 2017, we hope to make an even greater impact in our community through more impactful grant making and helping more philanthropists find their passion and support the work of so many deserving nonprofits,” Wilson said.

ing the county’s infrastructure. “One thing we are seeing, it’s a regional problem acerbated by things happening in Sacramento, is the homelessness issue,” Roe added. “One of her top priorities is wrapping her arms around what the county is doing.” In addition to the supervisor’s race, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista) has claimed victory over challenger Doug Applegate for the 49th Congressional seat also last week, according to media reports. It will be Is-

sa’s ninth term in congress. “Serving the people of Southern California has been one of the greatest honors of my life and I am humbled at the chance to continue fighting for them in Congress,” Issa said in a statement. “I thank the voters for putting their faith and support behind me and look forward at all we’ll be able to accomplish together in the next two years.” Applegate has said that he will run again for the same district during the mid-term elections in two years.

Drew at the Sunday market started hinting that this break could be permanent. I scoffed at that idea, still rejecting the possibility that it might be over. I finally mustered up the nerve to ask Drew flat out what was going on with the Cuban. His response was firm and direct, as it should be in situations like this, “Cubans are gone, will let you know of any cameos in the future.” That’s it, a clean break, and as much as it killed me, I appreciated his straightforwardness. He did elaborate a bit by saying that they never sold that well in Leucadia and that there were a handful of fanatics that shared my feelings of loss. So, now it’s time to move on. I’m thinking I

should probably give it some time before I begin my search for a replacement, a time for healing so to speak. Sure there are other Cubans out there, but they all seem to have some kind of twist or gourmet take on the original. I can appreciate that effort, but sometimes simple is best and if any of you local delis or sandwich shops decide to go there, please let me know. I’ll close with my description of Annel & Drew’s Cuban and a brief history from the 2010 column and thank them for the years of pleasure they provided: The combination of pork shoulder roasted with garlic, citrus & herbs, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and lime aioli melted on fresh baked semolina bread is as good as I’ve had anywhere. It was originally created by

Cuban workers in the late 1800s and later on, Cuban immigrants and expatriates brought it to Miami where it is still very popular. They are usually pressed on a Panini press or similar device that melts all the ingredients together wonderfully. Take my word for it, if you are a sandwich fan, this is as good as it gets.

created for easy folding and compact storage, weighing in at 24 ounces. Two months after that initial dinner, Ed and Luciana met every morning developing their business which evolved into AIR FORT, LLC. Ed is quick to point how his daughter was the driving force behind AIR FORT. “When Luciana was young, my wife Rainey and I noticed how she really had this entrepreneurial spirit. It was this inner drive to succeed at everything she did,” he said. His daughter stood out early on by earning $500 a day with her lemonade stands, creating a store inside a family friend’s garage, and raising more than $13,000 for fire victims, he said. Ed described Luciana’s marketing skills as great when she was a young girl. Luciana, 23, who is a R. Roger Rowe alumnus, played volleyball at SDSU and then transferred to USD where she received her undergraduate degree in communications. She said the partnership with her father helped make her AIR FORT vision become a reality. According to Luciana,

But we also had some people who are clearly impatient and are ready for service.” According to Whalen, the first question in the survey wanted to know if the participants had internet service at their home. A total of 98 percent of respondents said “yes.” When asked about internet service, participants noted providers such as AT&T, AT&T Wireless, Cox, Orion, Time Warner and San Diego Broadband. Whalen pointed out three-quarters of the members had AT&T and AT&T Wireless as its providers. While 55 percent of participants were satisfied with their internet service costs, 88 percent wanted to improve their internet service. Whalen then presented a large map of the Covenant, which was color-coded to represent where the providers are in the area based

AIR FORT inflates in less than 30 seconds with an ordinary household fan. “What makes it so unique is that it is so much bigger than any of the other kids’ forts on the market. And it has no moving parts or any parts at all for that matter,” she said. The ABC Kids Expo Show in Las Vegas invited the duo to its 2015 show. “It was there we met some very key people who have been instrumental in helping us get the AIR FORT off the ground,” said Ed, calling it the “who’s who” in the industry. “We were very well received and we also held all our meetings in the AIR FORTS.” The father-daughter team calls their venture as fantastic. “This experience has made us grow much closer than we already were,” they said. “We praise each other and keep things positive while voicing our differences with respect and professionalism.” According to Luciana and Ed, AIR FORT is available for preorder on Kickstarter now until Dec. 14. Around the first of the New Year, buyers can purchase it on Airfort.com and Amazon. A few months later, the duo noted that Walmart.com has plans to offer AIR FORT online. on the answers from the respondents. The map will be on display at the Association for viewing. In regards to internet speed, two-thirds of the respondents were not satisfied with their current speed whereas one-third of people answered that they were satisfied. Whalen also shared with the board and Covenant members who were present about the types of comments they received from the survey. A total of 103 comments showed those respondents as supporting a project to improve service. While support for a project was evident, some respondents shared their concerns regarding costs and others noted a disinterest in a project. Fred Wasserman, RSF Association board president, said they were committed to this project. “We want to get it done and get it done right,” he said.

Free parking in downtown Del Mar for holidays DEL MAR — The city is welcoming community members and visitors to shop locally this holiday season in downtown Del Mar by offering complimentary holiday parking. Free parking and ex-

tended hours will be available at downtown parking spaces and marked with a holiday bag sign on the following dates: Dec. 10 through 11, Dec. 17 through 18, and from Dec. 24 through Jan. 1.

Spaces where parking is limited to 20 minutes will continue to be enforced. Additionally, the parking spaces along Camino del Mar included in the holiday parking program will not have the normal two-hour




restrictions, as long as customers park in spaces that are marked with a holiday bag sign. Free holiday parking includes the meters under the L’Auberge Hotel. Parking spaces in the 200 Block of 15th Street and on Camino del Mar between 15th Street and 10th Street will have no time limit. The holiday parking program began in 2008 at the request of the Del Mar Village Association. Volunteers monitor phones and computers while tracking Santa Claus at the NORAD Tracks Santa Operations Center on Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., on Dec. 24 last year.

NORAD ready to track Santa’s flight REGION — The North American Aerospace Defense Command is celebrating the 61st Anniversary of tracking Santa’s yuletide journey. The NORAD Tracks Santa website, noradsanta.org, launching Dec 1, features Santa’s North Pole Village, which includes a holiday countdown, games, activities, and more. The website is available in eight languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Chinese. Official NORAD Tracks Santa apps are also available in the Windows, Apple and Google Play stores, so parents and children can countdown the days until Santa’s launch on their smart phones and tablets! Tracking opportunities are also offered on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Google+. Santa followers just need to type “@noradsanta” into each search engine

to get started. Starting at 2:01 a.m. EST Dec. 24, website visitors can watch Santa make preparations for his flight. NORAD’s “Santa Cams” will stream videos on the website as Santa makes his way over various locations. Then, at 6 a.m. EST, trackers worldwide can speak with a live phone operator to inquire as to Santa’s whereabouts by dialing the toll-free number 1-877-Hi-NORAD (1-877446-6723) or by sending an email to noradtrackssanta@outlook.com. Any time on Dec. 24, Windows Phone users can ask Cortana for Santa’s location, and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa. NORAD Tracks Santa is truly a global experience, delighting generations of families everywhere. This is due, in large part, to the efforts and services of numerous program contributors.
