SOLANA BEACH — At the Jan. 22 Solana Beach City Council meeting staff reported that the Lomas Santa Fe Corridor Improvement Project is in its final phase. In 2017, the city began to develop the project to improve street integrity and safety for bicyclists, motorists and pedestrians. Frequent biker, walker and Solana Beach resident Kristin Brinner said she appreciates the current improvements and hopes to see further traffic control in order to make pedestrians safer. “I am particularly happy with the improvements right around where I live … anything you can do to calm traffic and make pedestrians more visible … as someone who frequently walks, I am dodging cars,” Brinner said. Phase 1 of the project was completed three years ago. It included conducting research and collecting recommendations. Phase 2 was completed in 2018 and comprised of analyzing the capability of the project and preparatory engineering. In Phase 3, the city held an open house in May 2019 and a community workshop in October 2019, where the community was able to give personal feedback regarding the project. Solana Beach resident Shawna McGarry said at the council meeting that this improvement project is vital for the safety and improvement of Solana Beach. “This is so important,

Watchdog group files petition to halt San Onofre demolition

Coronavirus patient at UCSD Health REGION — A confirmed coronavirus patient remained hospitalized Feb. 11 at UC San Diego Health, while another person was under observation at the facility for possible exposure to the disease that has killed more than 1,000 people, mostly in China. “Both patients are doing well and have minimal symptoms,” UCSD Health officials said late Monday. “UC San Diego Health has some of the nation’s leading experts on infectious diseases. We are fully prepared to care for adult patients with coronavirus. We want to assure you that patient safety is our top priority.” Hospital officials insisted there is no risk of exposure to other patients or visitors to the medical center. Federal officials on Monday confirmed that the San Diego patient had been diagnosed with the coronavirus, becoming the 13th known patient in the United States and seventh in California. Los Angeles and Orange counties each have one confirmed patient. KGTV first reported the case, saying the patient was aboard an initial flight of 167 evacuees from the Wuhan, China, area who landed at Miramar last on Feb. 5. Wuhan is the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. Hours after the plane landed, health officials said four of the passengers had been taken to hospitals after displaying potential symptoms of the illness — two adults to UC San Diego Health and a 4-year-old girl and an adult to Rady Children's Hospital. The two patients taken to Rady were later cleared and returned to Miramar to continue a 14-day quarantine, but another person from the flight was hospitalized the following day at UCSD for observation. On Feb. 7, a second plane carrying 65 people from Wuhan arrived at Miramar, and two of them were later hospitalized for observation, authorities said. One adult was taken to UCSD Health and a child was taken to Rady Children’s Hospital. More than 1,000 deaths from the coronavirus have been reported, all but two of them in China. More than 43,000 cases of the illness have been reported worldwide, the vast majority of them in China. Nearly 200 Americans arrived at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside on Jan. 29 and are quarantined there after being evacuated from Wuhan. That quarantine period ended Tuesday morning, with none of them showing any signs of the disease. — City News Service

With Champion’s best interest in mind, the Center’s medical team proceeded to remove Champion’s leg, giving him the best possible chance at an active, healthy life. The Cariss family took note of Champion at Helen Woodward Animal Center and welcomed him into their home. The Center is also lending its support to Po-

REGION — As Southern California Edison begins its eight-year-long process of decommissioning and dismantling the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, a local watchdog group has filed a petition to put a halt to actions at the seaside plant. Public Watchdogs, a nonprofit advocacy group, claims that if the facility is flooded with rain or ocean water, the proposed method of disposing nuclear waste could lead to explosive radioactive steam geysers. It is asking for a detailed look into disaster-proofing the site while it still has radioactive materials present. Edison, the plant’s majority owner and operator, Southern California Edison, disputed the group’s contentions, saying its petition is rife with errors. The utility sent out notices a week ago to residents within five miles of the plant that it would begin initial work on the demolition. San Onofre hasn’t produced power since a steam leak in 2012, and SCE closed the plant the following year and began decommissioning activities. The nuclear waste is being stored self-cooling canisters which take in cool air and expel hot air. The nuclear waste can reach temperatures of up to 452 degrees, according to Public Watchdog, which fears that the thermal shock of cold ocean water could cause a rupture in the canisters. Edison, however, flat out rejected the allegation. “The Public Watchdogs’ documents contain multiple errors,’’ according to an SCE statement. “For instance, the outside shell of the warmest spent fuel storage canister on site is approximately 225 degrees, not an average of 452 degrees. This one fact alone undercuts the entire `geyser’ narrative. Water is a better conductor of heat than air and actually would serve to more efficiently cool the canisters.” Edison insisted that it “continues to safely store spent nuclear fuel on site, and will do so until the federal government licenses and off-site facility that the fuel can be moved to.” When the California Coastal Commission voted 9-0 last October to allow SCE to begin dismantling the plant, the canisters were being moved from a “wet storage” facility to a newly constructed “dry storage” facility on the site. San Onofre is located on 85 acres of the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base and is home to 3.55 million pounds of spent nuclear fuel, the San Diego Union Tribune reported last year. The vote to dismantle the facility came with its own set of disputes, as there is no permanent federal site for nuclear waste, allowing it to pile up at facilities such as San Onofre.

Public Watchdogs claim the risk of having the waste sitting at the site within a short distance of millions of people is a disaster waiting to happen. Charles Langley, executive director of the advocacy group, pulled no punches in his letter to Margaret Doane, head of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. “This petition identifies possibly the most significant man-made engineering disaster of the century, exceeding such disasters as Chernobyl, Fukushima, Bhopal, Exxon Valdez, and the Deepwater

Horizon oil expulsion,” he wrote. In its statement, Edison encouraged “people in our local communities to take a tour at the site and see if for themselves, or learn more about spent nuclear fuel storage at San Onofre by visiting our website,” The costs of deconstruction come from $4.4 billion in existing trust funds for that purpose collected over years from Edison’s customers and from trust investments. ­— City News Service

Presidential candidates still not talking California issues

S Homelessness in the county


omelessness in California is at extremely high levels and San Diego, while better than San Francisco and Los Angeles, has a steadily rising homeless population. Recently, I partnered with Supervisor Jacob on addressing the homeless population in San Diego’s unincorporated area. In our Board Letter, I’ve asked County staff to take a look at existing buildings, which could be used for transitional housing. Also, the County will be adding four additional deputies to the HART program. The value of human life must always be a foremost concern when developing sound public policy. Additionally, there is also a value to the quality of life that residents and business owners face daily interacting with homelessness. Right now, unintended consequences from ballot measures and policies at the state level have tied law enforcements hands. The citizens of San Diego County demand that we maintain order and sanitary conditions in our public

around the county Jim Desmond spaces. They are compassionate, but they have every right to demand that their streets and neighborhoods not become unsanitary tent cities for the homeless. None of us would welcome that near our homes, and we should not allow it near others. While homelessness is a major issue, we need to make sure we are using taxpayer dollars effectively. Taxpayers demand accountability. Compassion alone is not helpful. Programs must be effective and accountable. District 5 podcast Do you want to stay up to date on the latest happenings in District 5?

Ill-conceived AB 5 isn’t working By Marie Waldron

Last week I joined my colleagues to address a large crowd gathered on the Capitol steps to protest Assembly Bill 5, one of the most devastating pieces of legislation in California’s recent history. This ill-conceived attempt to deal with the problem of employee misclassification has jeopardized the livelihood and security of thousands. My office has received hundreds of phone calls, emails and letters opposing AB 5 from a broad cross section of workers, including Uber and Lyft drivers, newspaper publishers, freelancers, interpreters, artists, musicians, and even local community groups like Fallbrook Arts, Inc. Small businesses, like mine, now cannot contract out for ser-

vices and bring in workers as job needs require. People needing flexible work schedules such as working moms, families with special needs children, those caring for elderly parents and many more have seen their incomes, their way of life, their families’ very security upended and threatened by AB 5. Despite a massive outpouring of criticism, AB 5 was pushed through last year with little consideration about its economic impact. Many exemptions, mostly for powerful and well-connected interest groups were included in the bill, but they are complicated, vague and often unusable. Gov. Newsom has indicated some interest to making changes. My legislative colleagues and I are

eager to help, and we are already introducing legislation, including the complete repeal of AB 5. Abuses of contract employees should be addressed, and laws to prevent misclassification of workers must be vigorously enforced. However, AB 5 limits freedom by preventing people from finding work schedules that fit their lives. It attempts to rig our economy with a one-size-fits-all solution that is unworkable in a state with 40 million people. We need a system of labor laws that work for all, not just the select, well-connected few. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature

o…, as Elizabeth Warren would start out, the Democrats held a presidential primary debate in California, in the Westchester district of Los Angeles to be specific. And still California issues get virtually no attention on the national scene. Even now, more than a month after that debate, with ballots appearing soon in mailboxes across the state, there’s still no substantial talk about California issues except from late-coming candidate Michael Bloomberg, the former New York mayor. Nothing much on homelessness; no creative ideas from any candidate — or from President Trump, for that matter. Nothing much on wildfire safety, other than condemnations of big privately owned utilities like Pacific Gas & Electric and Southern California Edison. No easy-tofollow formulas for buying them up and splitting them into local pieces. Nothing on offshore oil drilling or fracking; certainly no hints on fighting off Trump administration efforts to expand both in California. Nothing on how to solve the state’s massive housing shortage and affordability crisis. Nothing on charter schools or Trump-spurred threats to national parks and monuments. Not a word on water or the bullet train, which will go nowhere without more federal funding. What’s wrong here? If there’s any real answer to the lack of attention to this one state that will choose far more Democratic nominating convention delegates than any other both in the March 3 Super Tuesday voting and during the entire primary season, it may lie in the way Democrats apportion delegates.

california focus thomas d. elias While Republicans employ a winner-take-all system giving almost all of every state’s delegates to whoever gets the most votes in a primary or caucus, even if that candidate only wins a plurality, Democrats employ proportional representation. So no one running in California’s primary — basically separate elections in each of 53 congressional districts — will get the full pot of 495 delegates. Each district will annoint anywhere from 4 to 7 delegates, split among candidates who get at least 15% of the vote in a district. Another 114 delegates go mainly to the overall statewide winner. If all California’s Democratic delegates went to that overall winner rather than getting splintered, maybe the likes of Sens. Warren and Bernie Sanders, ex-Vice President Joe Biden and former mayors Bloomberg and Pete Buttegieg would be forced to learn about the many issues now shaping lives in California. But today’s Democratic system doesn’t require this from them. Yes, they’ve become conversant with local candidates and issues in Iowa and New Hampshire, where the earliest votes and caucuses might provide momentum going into Super Tuesday states like California and Texas. The Democrats crafted their system almost 20 years ago. They wanted to prevent anyone from getting all California’s delegates — or any other state’s — with a mere 25% or so of the votes but still

beating out competitors who finish barely a percent or two behind in the total vote. That leaves candidates open to damaging gaffes, like Sanders’ now-revoked endorsement of a far-left candidate in the race to replace Democratic Rep. Katie Hill in the 25th Congressional District stretching from Simi Valley into the High Desert of Los Angeles County. Yes, Cenk Uygur agreed with Sanders on most things, but the podcaster and former conservative has a history of homophobic and sexist rants. Sanders’ California staff advised him not to endorse, but he did anyway and ran into a buzz saw, then withdrew the endorsement after barely a day. Would this have happened if Sanders had studied California issues and knew how strong the LGBT and feminist movements are here? Instead, Sanders, like every other national candidate this year except Bloomberg, has viewed California almost entirely as a cash register, some candidates — like Buttegieg — even going to great lengths to conceal the luxury of several fund-raising venues. Will this all add up to yet another failed effort to give California more influence in choosing presidents by moving the primary ahead from its traditional June date? It’s too early to tell. For one thing, Bloomberg is concentrating time and money here heavily, hoping to make up for his late start by doing well here. Plus, if the very early small-state primaries yield contradictory results, California can still be a bellwether. Email Thomas Elias at

Tales from traffic school


felt like a break in my regular routine and I needed a good laugh, so I spent Saturday in traffic school. Well, it wasn’t my first choice, but it was cheaper than the Ritz-Carlton, and this well-meaning motorcycle deputy insisted I try it. I just couldn’t say no. Although the menu and room service lacked a certain something, it was an amusing change of pace. It certainly isn’t that I found anything entertaining about being nabbed at that stop sign. Neither is it funny to pay a triple-digit fine to the county for my poor judgment. Most of the laughs came from listening to my felonious classmates. I always know exactly what I am being pulled over for and am not interested in trying to rationalize that I didn’t do it or find some technicality that will neutralize the state traffic laws. Not so with my young compatriots that day. A large portion of the time was spent listening to them trying to convince us that they should never have been stopped. Fortunately, once there, we had time to waste and besides, the stories are hilarious. The excuses are amazing, although the attitudes are a little scary. The young men … the majority of the class … simply wanted to know which speeding tickets can be beaten in court. When the instructor dared to suggest that we might simply want to go the speed limit, one responded quickly, “I’d fall asleep!” No sadder-but-wiser man there. One friend of mine suggested the state ought to offer traffic school based on age bracket. That might reduce the number of whiners I had to listen to, but it would ill prepare me for what is really out there on the roads. It’s not that I wasn’t arrogant in my youth. I’ve just reached

small talk jean gillette that far distant place where it’s my job to find those young whippersnappers really annoying. If I heard one more, “but everyone else was doing it,” I was going to send somebody to their room. My all-time favorite “why I got my ticket” story was from a guy who drove his 4-by-4 right over a cement and grass center island to make an illegal U-turn — because he could. I had to thank him for doing something I have always fantasized about. Anyway, I found it a day well spent. I didn’t have to drive children from one end of town to another, watch any Disney videos, make sandwiches, vacuum my house, do lunch dishes or lace up roller blades. I got to just sit and listen to one person talk at a time. I got to finish a thought uninterrupted. I also learned (or relearned) a thing or two. I learned that I want to raise the driving age to 35. I learned that the in-house name for the flashing lights on the police vehicle are the “O.S.” lights. This comes from the first thing most of us say when we see them in our rear-view mirror. I learned I’m not the worst driver on the road, but my kids don’t believe me. As swell as all this was, I learned that next time I want a mini-vacation, I won’t look to the CHP for advice. I’d rather be lunching at the Ritz. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer and still mediocre driver. Contact her at

If Measure G passes, the Marisol Project will work to develop the 320,000 square feet into 22 low-income housing units, 31 villas, four houses without impeded ocean views and a 65-room hotel.

DEL MAR — Roughly 30 residents attended with their dogs and stood in front of the North Bluff on the corner of Via de la Valle and Highway 101 Jan. 25 to acknowledge their desire to save the bluff. The protest was organized by Spencer Gobar and shared via various Facebook groups and change. org. As a Del Mar resident, Spencer Gobar said bringing commercial development to Del Mar is an awful plan and promising bluff access is the developers trying to encourage ignorance from the Del Mar residents. “This is a terrible idea … once you do it everyone will want to do it,” Spencer Gobar said. “Keep it within the residential zoning.

and planning. Brett views the initiative as harmful to the lifestyle of the community. “It is bad politics, it is bad planning to let anyone come in and change the zoning … It screws the quality of life for people already living here,” Brett Gobar said. Also in attendance was one of two City Council members to make any public comment regarding their opinion on Measure G, Deputy Mayor Terry Gaasterland. Gaasterland said that after reading through the initiative multiple times, it was important to stand up for the community of Del Mar. “The more I read the initiative, I realized as well intentioned as it may be, the initiative itself is a document that undermines our community plan,” Gaasterland said.

Gobar, alongside many others in attendance, said they would want for the land to be turned into a public park. “It would be great if the people of Del Mar and Solana Beach came together and built a park,” Gobar said.

North County leaders Bluff safety highlighted on D.C. trip divided over Measure A Father, husband of collapse victims is Levin’s State of the Union guest REGION — Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara and Vista City Councilwoman Corinna Contreras urged San Diego County voters Feb. 5 to approve Measure A on their ballots, while the North San Diego Business Chamber urged voters to reject the measure. Measure A would require a countywide vote on any major housing project that would require a change to the county’s general plan. Business leaders, the building industry and many housing advocates are opposed to the measure. Conservancy groups, rural voters and those opposed to urban and suburban sprawl are in favor. McNamara spoke at a news conference Wednesday supporting the measure, saying he had seen what a similar — albeit smaller in scope — proposition had done for Escondido. Proposition S is a land rule which requires a vote to approve zoning changes in residential areas of the city. “In Escondido, the passage of Proposition S encouraged development where it was needed most,” McNamara said. “Prop S has not impeded economic development or housing development in Escondido, and there is every reason to believe that Measure A will similarly guide developers to build housing closer to jobs and infrastructure.” The North San Diego Business Chamber’s Economic Development and Advocacy Advisory Council voted to oppose Measure A. “If approved, this measure will make creation of housing projects much more costly and difficult, causing developers to forgo developing within San Diego County,” according to a chamber statement. ``Without the creation of more housing outside of the general plan, San Diego will not be able to meet current and future population projections, the region will not be able to maintain its economic competitiveness and preserve the quality of life for our workforce and families.” The advisory council is chaired by Linda Bailey, president of Community Strategies Group, and Mike

Nagy, public affairs manager for the Southern California Rental Housing Association. The council has 34 members, with a majority vote deciding which measures the chamber endorses. According to the Yes on A campaign, the current general plan focuses new housing in areas with infrastructure to support it. “Measure A encourages following the county’s smart growth general plan, which is the key to meeting our greenhouse gas emissions targets and creating a more sustainable region,” said Contreras. “When the county does not follow its smart growth general plan, it destroys habitat while creating more congestion in our region and making housing less affordable. Sprawl is bad for the cities and bad for the countryside.” The chamber, while opposing Measure A, does support Measure B, which would amend the county’s general plan to authorize the development of the Newland Sierra Project just north of Escondido and San Marcos, and east of Vista. That project plans for 2,135 new homes. “Building homes near employment centers allows employees to live locally, keeping their tax base in the region and reducing emissions from commutes,” according to the advisory council. “The project also follows Chamber requirements for housing projects in affordability, with over 60% of homes priced for working families.” McNamara has endorsed Measure B. Most of that measure’s opposition comes from people worried about fire risk and the environmental impact of the development. In a ballot argument, John Thomson, retired deputy fire chief, said, “This project is located in a high fire danger zone and no affordable housing for firefighters is required by the project approvals — two good reasons to vote no.” The ballot measures will be decided in the March 3 election.


bike lanes. Finally, the Boys & Girls Club’s east driveway will gain a striped “keep clear” zone with the intention of improving the passage. Mayor Jewel Edson said these improvements to visibility and traffic control are an important focus because public safety is critical to Solana Beach. “Overall, public safety is of course paramount in our city,” Edson said. “I believe we should do everything that we can.” The city staff report clarifies that these improvements to the roads are being funded with $68,450 from city funds and $616,050 from the Active Transportation Grant by the San Diego Association of Govern-


for me, it is the most exciting thing happening in Solana Beach,” McGarry said. “We really need to transform this road to serve all users safely. It’s going to make the whole user experience in our town better.” The Lomas Santa Fe Improvement Project includes restriping the left turn lane and increasing the discernibility of the crosswalks at Rios Avenue and Highway 101. Nardo Avenue will receive a high-visibility crosswalk as well, along with a bike lane. From the Plaza Shopping Center Driveway to Santa Helena will receive high-visibility roads and

REGION — Tragedy struck six months ago on Aug. 2, 2019, when three people were killed in a bluff collapse at Grandview Beach in Encinitas. Those three people were Julie Davis, Anne Clave and Elizabeth Cox, the wife, daughter and sister-in-law, respectively, of pediatric dentist Pat Davis of Encinitas. On Feb. 4, Davis attended President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address as the guest of Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano). Together, Davis and Levin hope to emphasize the importance of funding projects that will replenish the coast’s sand and make it safer for beachgoers to prevent any more deaths from happening. Levin has been pushing for funding for such a project since before the Aug. 2 bluff collapse. On July 31, days before the collapse occurred, Levin wrote to the commanding general and chief of engineers for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requesting federal funding for the Solana Beach-Encinitas Coastal Shore Protection Project, also known as the San Diego County Shore Protection Project. Congress authorized the project in 2016 with a primary purpose of stabilizing tall coastal bluffs that are eroding due to high-energy storm swells. The erosion of these bluffs, according to Levin’s office, pose threats to life, safety, property and infrastructure like the rail corridor that runs along the coast. On Dec. 20, Trump signed the Further Consol-

idated Appropriations Act of 2020, which included $905,000 in federal funding for the planning, engineering and design (PED) phase of the project. An additional $4,000,000 was included for shore protection investigations. “Now we have to ensure that money gets spent without delay and that we move on with the actual replenishment,” Levin said. An estimated $30 million will be needed to fund sand replenishment for the next five years, according to Levin. The federal government would pay for 65% of that amount with the remaining 35% to be funded through state and local resources. The project will span

over 50 years. Every five years, more funding will need to be requested to continue the replenishment project for that long. After the initial five years, the federal government will be responsible for 50% of the cost to be matched by state and local dollars. Levin said sand replenishment is not the only thing that needs to happen in order to better protect the coastline. More solutions will be needed to address issues caused by “the more several impacts of climate change that have exacerbated the risks associated with living next to the coast.” Levin invited Davis as his guest to the State of the Union so that the two

of them could highlight the need to address these issues. “After the accident, Congressman Levin reached out to me and expressed his empathy and his plans to make the beaches a lot safer,” Davis said. “I was more than happy to jump on board with him and do anything I could to raise awareness about the terrible bluff situation in Encinitas and Solana Beach.” Besides sand replenishment, Davis said he would like to see city and state officials come together and find solutions that will create safe zones on beaches, especially where staircases are built and near lifeguard towers.

I-5 traffic shift marks project’s midpoint ENCINITAS — SANDAG and Caltrans joined law enforcement and labor leaders early the morning of Jan. 28 off Manchester Avenue in Cardiff to celebrate crews reaching the halfway point on I-5 improvements, a critical component of the comprehensive Build NCC ments. The council members as well as public speakers stressed that this was an important project to be investing funds in, as it promotes better alternative transportation options, in order to lessen the cities greenhouse gas emissions. City Councilwoman Kristi Becker acknowledged that this will benefit the community in a number of ways in addition to encouraging the community to use alternative options for transportation. “We know that transportation is our highest (CO2) contributor, so this is exactly what we should be doing,” Becker said. “We are checking off a lot of boxes by doing this.”

suite of highway, rail, environmental, and mobility improvements. Once complete in 2022, Build NCC will add one new high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction on I-5, between Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Beach and State Route 78 in Oceanside. The halfway point also coincides with the first important shift of traffic in both northbound and southbound directions. In early February, the traffic shifts will push motorists to a new highway bridge over the San Elijo lagoon. This shift is the first of several transitions that will be completed along the eight-mile stretch of I-5 construction during the next several months. The shift in traffic over the bridge is necessary to allow construction crews to lengthen the highway bridge to improve tidal flow in the lagoon and to widen the bridge to accommodate one additional HOV lane in each direction. The lane shifts are temporary and will be realigned upon completion of

the bridge in 2021. The traffic shifts are scheduled to be completed at night over the course of two weeks, beginning the week of Feb. 3. The number of lanes along I-5 will not be reduced during construction. Once the lanes are shifted, motorists will experience a slight curve in both northbound and southbound directions as they approach and depart the bridge. The Build NCC project began in 2017 and is anticipated to be complete in 2022.The $869 billion project is funded through a combination of federal, state, and local sources. The highway portion of Build NCC is estimated to cost $663 million. “I thank everyone involved in this project – from the elected officials, our agency partners, the planners and engineers, the joint-venture contractor, our trade workers, and the community,” said Allan Kosup, North Coast Corridor Director for Caltrans District 11. “This halfway point of the I-5 improvements marks the progress

made in our region’s efforts to deliver a diverse set of multimodal transportation choices and quality of life improvements throughout north coastal San Diego County.” “This project is just the beginning of a larger vision of a Complete Corridor by increasing travel options along Interstate 5 in North County,” said SANDAG Vice Chair and Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear. To ensure safety for both motorists and the construction crews, drivers are reminded to “Drive 55 on the 5” in the Build NCC construction zone. Motorist Aid assistance can be easily accessed by dialing 5-11 anywhere in San Diego County. To learn more and to sign up for project email updates, visit Text “BuildNCC” to 313131 to sign up to receive construction text alerts.

Ex-Charger Edwards remains a force Helen Woodward sees sports talk jay paris


onnie Edwards deserves a salute and for that we need to get in line. Edwards, the former San Diego Chargers linebacker, was honored during Super Bowl weekend. While most will remember the festivities in Miami for the Kansas City Chiefs beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54, we look to Edwards’ achievement as the one with the most significance. Edwards, a Rancho Santa Fe resident, was named the Salute to Service award winner for 2019. The distinction goes to an NFL community member who goes the extra mile in supporting the military. “It means so much to me to continue the legacy of my grandfather, Maximino, by honoring the ones who defended — and continue to defend — our freedom,” Edwards told the NFL Network. Edwards has long been a military history buff and that was evident when he was with the Chargers. While always accessible and honest about a past or future game, he really be-

came engaged when chatting about veterans and U.S. troops in harm’s way. It was in 2002 that he started the Best Defense Foundation which supported our youth and military. With childhood obesity becoming more prevalent, Edwards spoke on the importance of the nutrition and exercise. His foundation donated $40,000 to Chula Vista High School for a weight room where strong bodies could be formed, along with the camaraderie which comes from sports. Chula Vista was where Edwards graduated from and his plan was to follow the marching orders that often found their way to his 10 siblings. Many of them went into the military, a longtime family tradition which dated to Maximino, a World War II veteran and a Pearl Harbor attack survivor. But instead of going to college on the GI Bill, Edwards got there en route to the NFL. While he was set to attend San Diego State, at the last minute he got an offer from UCLA. From there he spent 13 years in the pros after being a fourth-round pick by the Chiefs in 1996. His career saw him record at least 100 tackles in 11 of those seasons and it included a Pro Bowl selection. Edwards came home to San Diego in 2002, starring on two AFC West title

teams in his five years with the squad he cheered for as a youngster. When the 6-foot-2, 227-pound Edwards retired he was a 20-20 guy and it had nothing to do with his exceptional vision which allowed him to start at a rugged position at less than the ideal height and weight. When he retired, he was among only eight NFL players with 20 interceptions and 20 sacks. With Edwards, the Chargers’ defense seldom rested. He’s making sure that same energy is expended when helping the

military. Somewhere, Maximino is smiling upon his grandson’s attention to others. “My grandfather was the inspiration to start the Best Defense Foundation,” Edwards, 46, said. “His service and sacrifice to our country has always pushed me to pay tribute and give gratitude to those who protect our way of life. “He always used to tell me that I have a tremendous amount of opportunity and freedom by being born in this great nation. I now want to use my platform to serve and give back to our active military personnel and veterans.” Edwards has participated in nine USO tours and on Armed Forces Entertainment Tour overseas and he’s spearheaded excursions for veterans. In almost 14 years he’s directed more than 33 programs in which he escorts World War II and Vietnam Veterans to former battlefields and significant outposts. “From Berchtesgaden, Germany, to the beaches of Iwo Jima, and everywhere in between,” Edwards said. Last year’s Super Bowl had Edwards rubbing shoulders with troops at a watch party in Okinawa. Later he would be at Normandy with 16 veterans and a nurse to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. This year we toast Edwards.

record number of litters RANCHO SANTA FE — Helen Woodward Animal Center is experiencing a spring, of sorts, in January with a record number of pregnant dogs and cats. A surprising number of four-legged mommas welcomed their litters within the Rancho Santa Fe facility in the first month of the year. Helen Woodward Animal Center is delighted to introduce the world to these new fuzzy faces. With 14 mothers in its care, HWAC’s veterinary clinic is a go-to facility when overburdened shelters need help with pregnant orphan pets. “Many shelters simply cannot take in pregnant mothers,” said Helen Woodward Animal Center Operations Director Jennifer Shorey. “A newborn family requires months of resources from a medical department, a foster network, and a shelter staff. Mother and babies cannot go available for adoption for at least eight weeks after birth, due to recovery time, required vaccines, and spays and neuters. “For challenged shelters with time limits, this can mean that an entire family may be put down before the babies are even born. Many of those shelters now call HWAC first. Potential adopters can visit for hour-by-hour availability.

Animal lovers not in the market for a new puppy or kitten can still assist with Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Momma Mania by donating or becoming a foster. Our foster families provide the home and the loving care and Helen Woodward Animal Center provides everything else, including bedding, food, and more. Additionally, a full-time medical team (available during business hours), and an after-hours staff member, are all part of the team surrounding Center fosters to make sure they have everything they need.

Cheers! North County: Introducing your new beer columnist


ello The Coast News reader. My name is Ryan, and I’m your new North County beer, spirits and beverage columnist. Welcome to Cheers! North County. I spent the last week trying to figure out how to introduce myself and this new column to you. Figure out some way to inspire your confidence on the reflections you’ll find here week after week. I would sit at my desk, open a new document and start to make lists of the things I could tell you. Things like my first memory involving beer. It was a Budweiser from the trunk of my friend’s car in the parking lot of the movie theater before “The Blair Witch Project.” I don’t think any of us made it all the way through the film. Or my first craft beer, a New Glarus Spotted Cow Wheat, which was handed to me in a small bar in Southern Wisconsin by the father of a girl I liked. That beer changed my life by setting me on a path of beer exploration and setting the tone for later when I asked for permission to marry the girl. I thought I could tell you that most of my life has been spent in the restaurant and brewing industry, working my way up the ranks from dishwasher to bartender to general manager, designing product labels, writing about beer entrepreneurs, photographing zombie pub crawls, going on tasting quests to sample 365 new beers in

Cheers! North County

Ryan Woldt 365 days, or teaching people how to best make a cup of great coffee while out camping. I could tell you about the beers I’ve drunk, or even tried to make, but every time I sat down to work on the list, I found myself interrupted. My in-laws stopped by for a six-pack and after dinner whiskey by the fire. A local brewery rep wanted to meet up for a drink, and to talk about his upcoming wedding. There was politics, all of the politics last week, that inspired watching parties and beer during the festivities. Someone suggested a drink every time someone said, “health care,” but we decided it was too risky. There was hiking with friends, and a quick brewery visit afterwards. All of these interruptions allowed me to reflect on my list, and come to the conclusion that the beverages, good or bad, are only a small part of the drinking experience. The important part isn’t my opinion of this beer or that cocktail, it was the people I was with, the experiences we shared, and the stories we told each other. By being excited and passionate about beer, cocktails, coffee or any adventure that would inspire the clinking of glass, can or bottle I found a fine group

CHILL OUT! Try Whole-Body Cryotherapy - Get Back in the Game Faster!

of people from all walks of life that was, and is, excited about those things too. That community is me, and it is all of you. The Cheers! North County column is really the experience of drinking, the people that make, provide and partake in the luxury of drink. I’ll be seeking out stories around these unique beverages and people. There will also be some industry news, reviews, tidbits and the occasional opinion. I’ll be honest, and fair. Sometimes we may disagree, but hopefully that

will lead to us sharing a beer and a spirited debate. Together, we’ll go on some adventures. We’ll explore new places and create some new memories. We’ll have some fun. This column is about you, and this community. I look forward to sharing it with you. Cheers North County. Have an idea for an article, and event I should check out, or have beverage news to share?

ESCONDIDO — On March 5, 413 Repertory Theatre returns for another atmospheric production at the Escondido Grand Tea Room with “Clue On Stage.” 413 Rep is an Escondido-founded company that specializes in dinner theater, wherein patrons will sit around enjoying a variety of hors d’oeuvres and other dinner delights while a show is performed right in front of them. “Clue On Stage” is an off-Broadway production adapted from both “Clue” the film and the Hasbro-produced board game upon which it was based. The play was adapted by David Abbinanti and Jonathan Lynn, with additional material incorporated by Hunter Foster and Sandy Rustin. The story is a classic murder-mystery “whodunnit” with some comedy in the mix; a group of eccentric characters must discover who amongst them in

Boddy Manor is a murderer before it’s too late. Cast member and former Groundlings Theatre & School student Christopher Szabo has been rehearsing for his role as Wadsworth the Butler (played by Tim Curry in the film) since January; the show is Szabo’s first with 413 Rep. “It’s been good,” he said of his time with the company. “It’s been a learning experience, because this play that we’re doing is — relatively — a newer play, as far as licensing goes for this area.” He noted that he will be incorporating only a few aspects of Curry’s take on the character in his own performance. “As you do with anything that’s a movie-to-stage adaptation, you want to maintain some of the flavor that the actors will bring in the movie set and bring that into the character, just to have a lit-

tle, kind of like, head-nod to it, but I think a lot of it is like ... you want to bring some originality to it, something that makes it a little bit different.” One of the challenges of producing the play is having to accommodate for the fact that the Grand Tea Room, where the cast has been rehearsing, is a single dining area with relatively little space, which runs contrary to the fact that “Clue” takes place inside a sprawling mansion with multiple rooms. “It’s been, actually, a fun process, because we get to play around with it and just add in more comedy to the already comedic play,” Szabo said. He described rehearsals as being akin to a comedy club show, with actors riffing off of one another in moments of improvisation. But Szabo and the cast have also been careful not

to accidentally break any of the fine china present in the room. He also practices with the knowledge that the cast will be surrounded on nearly all sides during actual performances and plans on incorporating the audience into the plot. “I’ll walk up to an audience member and I’ll be, like, ‘Here you are sir, if you don’t mind holding onto this for the entire show,’” he said, adopting an English accent. “We got a really good cast and crew of people that are just excited to just perform for a bunch of people, and I think it’s gonna be a really good time,” Szabo said. The show runs from March 5 to March 22. Tickets are $69 for night performances and $82 for Sunday matinees. Showtimes are 7 p.m. for Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday.

‘Recycled Runway’ show seeking designs fit.

By Hoa Quach

ESCONDIDO — Beach balls. Shower curtains. Umbrellas. When it comes to creating fashion, the materials available are endless — at least that’s what you’ll see at the Recycled Materials Runway Event, a program created by the nonprofit Escondido Arts Partnership, that has hosted the event since 2008. The program, set for June, is accepting designs from artists and hopes to receive up to 20 participants. The show, which only features clothing designs made of recycled materials, is the only known “Recycled Runway” event in the region. “All garments and accessories are constructed, assembled and embellished using conventional and non-conventional elements including thrifted, reconditioned and trashed materials,” said Chrisanne Moats, executive director of the Escondido Arts Partnership. “This exciting evening combines visual arts, including film, and installations which are inspired by the re-using of objects destined for landfills. The Recycled Materials Runway Event features artwork and fashion designs, with a focus on student and emerging fashion designers and artists.” Moats said designers have created clothing out of every material imaginable, including venetian blinds, maps and palm fronds. “Some of my favorites were a sparkling black evening gown made with crocheted VHS tape and both a man’s suit and cock-

I’ve cut the bags and swatches into retro styles from the 60s and am once again doing both men’s and women’s snappy duds. All these clothes are washable and sewn to last. Thankfully I’ve come a long way from that first wear-itonly-once ensemble.” But the event is about more than just showcasing the unique artwork of those from throughout California. “People love this show for its uniqueness and since of wonder,” Moats said. “As well as being fun and festive, the fashion show brings attention to all those things that we would throw away. It sheds light on how we might reuse or even curb our use of material goods.” Any artist who is interested in participating in the Recycled Materials Runway Event can submit photos before May 16 to mail@ Artists can submit up to three different garments that were made in the past two years and is made up of 75 percent of non-toxic recycled and repurposed materials. Chosen artists will be announced on May 19. Organizers of the show are also accepting model applications.

Craft woodworking show at Municipal Gallery By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — For Brian Murphy, craft wood-making conjures a simpler time, one in which automation did not reign supreme over the entire industry. But automation has also driven down the cost of furniture for everyday people. “It’s art,” Murphy said. “So, it’s discretionary income money that buys custom furniture. Some people buy it just because it’s art and some people want it to be very functional. The trade itself is like the stock market. Sometimes it goes up, and it goes down. It goes up, it goes down. The more money people have, the more they will buy art.” As a way of bringing the past to the present, Murphy works as sponsor with his wife Nancy Murphy for “Wood: A Furniture Show,” which is currently making its 11th annual appearance at the Escondido Arts Partnership’s Municipal Gallery. The show features the work of 39 craft wood-makers and will be on display through Feb. 21. The owner of Murphy’s Fine Woodworking in Escondido, Murphy also has one of his own works on exhibition, a chair. “In 1981, we bought a chain of stores called The Cutting Edge here in Cali-

fornia,” Murphy said of his interest in the wood-based art form. “It was a woodworking (retail store) and at that time, we established a school to teach woodworking and some of the amazing young artists at that time now are some of the

most famous woodworkers in America today. It kind of just stuck and became a passion.” Murphy said that for this year’s show, 10 students from Palomar College’s Cabinet and Furniture Technology program have

12 different works on display, a program he praised as “the best west of the Mississippi.” One of those pieces, Werner Pyka’s “Five Game Federal Demilune,” won “best of show.” “They have sourced some of the best woodworkers in San Diego,” said Murphy. “Now San Diego has a reputation for some of the most famous woodwork. The largest guild woodworking club is the San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association.” San Diego-based artist David Marr, who had a dresser and two-tiered table on display, expressed excitement about the gallery. “It’s always nice to be able to show your art,” Marr said. “Hopefully, people that see your work will gain some appreciation for something that is made by hand from the soul. It’s something really special to have a gallery for us artists to show our work.” Paul Schürch, a Santa Barbara-based wood-mak-

er, also has two pieces on display. Both are wall pieces, one a palm frond motif and the other a woven mat theme. “It gives me great pleasure to exhibit my work in such venues such as the Municipal Arts Gallery in Escondido,” said Schürch. “My medium is wood, and the technique is marquetry. I delight in creating unusual pictures and patterns using the natural color of wood. I strive to convey strong visual content and depth of field and inlaying the little curiosities in the image becomes the fun aspect of showing it was made by human hands.” And Steve Zonce, a San Diego-based woodworker who won first place for best craftsmanship, has his table on display. He began woodworking as a teen. “I love creating pieces that make people say, ‘Wow!’ or ‘How did he do that?” said Zonce. “It’s been one of my lifelong passions that I turned into a business. I take great pride in my work because you’re working with a once-living thing.” Murphy says that at the end of the day, the annual show is a way to raise awareness of and keep the niche artform alive. “The health of the custom furniture business is never fantastic,” he said. “It’s a challenging way to make a living. And for young people coming out, they need to mentor with somebody. And they need to have guidance and direction they need to understand it’s a business first, because really you can be the greatest artist in the world, but unless you manage your money, you’re going to starve to death.” The Escondido Arts Partnership’s Municipal Gallery is open from Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located at 262 E. Grand Avenue in downtown Escondido.

Palomar film coming to the small screen SAN MARCOS — The documentary, “Shattered Dreams: Sex Trafficking in America,” produced by Palomar College Television (PCTV), is coming to small screens everywhere thanks to a distribution partnership with the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA). Providing an important take on a heavy topic, “Shattered Dreams” has won dozens of awards and appeared in film festivals across the U.S. Now it’s expected to reach 50 to 60 million homes under PBS distribution. The film’s public television debut occurred on Las Vegas’ KLVX on Jan. 12. According to the college, the documentary was well received and dozens of stations have picked it up. Bill Wisneski, the PCTV producer who directed the project, attributes the film’s success to its unique approach. “We focused on the psychology of why women are trapped in this situation and can’t get out — they call it the ‘mental handcuffs,’ he said. “And then we focused on the buyers more than most other films. Until recently, the women were focused on, they were considered the problem. But without the demand, you’re not going to have the problem.” “Shattered Dreams” premiered on April 4, 2019 at Palomar’s Howard Brubeck Theatre, and then commenced with a tour of film festivals from coast to coast. In June, the film won four Emmy Awards from the Pacific Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, including “Best Documentary,” directing, writing and editing. According to a 2016 study by the University of San Diego and Point Loma Nazarene University, human trafficking is San Diego’s second-largest underground economy after the drug trade, with an estimated $810 million in annual revenue. The study found approximately 110 street gangs involved in human trafficking in the region, many using social media and female recruiters. “We are incredibly proud of our PCTV team and the work they’ve done to bring awareness to this topic,” said Jack Kahn, acting superintendent/ president of Palomar College. “Their work is going to help Americans far beyond our district make sense of this brutal industry that affects so many young women.”

The Encinitas theater will be hosting films for the first time for the annual, cultural event, which is now in its 30th year. “With movie theaters closing everywhere — not just in San Diego — La Paloma is a little gem in our community that I hope the community will recognize as an asset and support by attending both our festival and any other films they have there,” Ryan Isaac, director of cultural arts, Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center. “La Paloma truly serves an important place in our community as a place for people to gather and in the arts community as a place to showcase film.” La Paloma Theatre, the intimate theatre on Coast Highway that opened in 1928, will be one of five venues to host a handful of films when the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival runs for 10 days beginning Thursday, Feb. 13. “We always try to bring our festival to North


by the husband and wife team of Farah and Mozy Jahanguiri for the past eight years. Jahanguiri is no stranger to big city celebrities. He made a name for himself in Chicago, Minneapolis and Dallas. In “Big D” he knew Cowboy quarterback Troy Aikman and other VIP players on the team and has large format photos to prove it. His wine collection could be the very best in the restaurants of the region. Over 5,000 bottles sit in traditional French cellars and other locations in the intimate restaurant. “My collection for my guests is not only limited to expensive French. I selected a 2018 Conundrum blend for you from the Wagner Family Collection in Napa Valley. For my French-style grass fed New York steak, I will open a bottle of 2016 DAOU Reserve Cabernet from Paso Robles. This brand is fast becoming the preferred wine in anyone’s collection for French style wine artistry.” DAOU is widely available in better restaurants and is frequently profiled in Taste of Wine & Food. A French touch is in evidence in every corner of The Bistro. Even the French Fried Potatoes that accompanied the French cooked steak, soaked in sauces, were light and fluffy… Paris style. The Bistro is open for breakfast on weekdays and

County, and we feel that Encinitas and La Paloma have grown in attracting festival followers and film lovers,” Isaac said. “Encinitas continues to grow and develop with the arts, eating, festivals. We are now part of that.” Films such as "The Dead of Jaffa," which tells the story of Israeli Palestinians Rita and George, who encounter three West Bank children in their home, and "The Mover," which tells the story of Zanis Lipke, who saves Jewish friends by hiding them on his property during World War II, will both air at La Paloma Theatre. The films are just two of the more than 30 that will play across San Diego County during the festival’s 10-day run. Attendees can also expect a selection of short films. “We have an exceptional line up of film from Jewish directors or films that showcase Jewish or Israeli stories,” said Christina Fink, chair of the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival. “This is the largest Jewish cultural event in San Diego County. But, having said that, let me mention that the festival is truly a format for diverse international film and the entire San Diego Brunch on Saturday. The restaurant is closed on Sundays but does open for private parties by reservation. The Bistro is located in the Rancho Santa Fe Village on Paseo Delicias.

community should feel welcome and invited.” Fink said attendees of the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival will always walk away learning a bit about a culture or history because of the films they see at the event. “It never fails to surprise me how many stories are out there that are new, different and interesting,” said Fink, who has led the festival for four years. “I

always feel that I am better and wiser having seen films that expose us to learning about other people and their life experiences.” Other than La Paloma Theatre, the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival will showcase movies at Clairemont Reading Cinemas; the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park; the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre in La Jolla; and White

Labs in San Diego. Other events of the long-running festival include a kickoff party at Leichtag Commons in Encinitas, which is open to all ticket holders, and meetings with filmmakers. Those interested in seeing a movie at La Paloma can pay per screening or purchase a film festival pass and watch three movies for $39. A six-pack of movies pass is $68 while an

all-festival pass is $300. “We want to welcome the entire community to explore stories of Jewish heritage and tradition,” Fink said. “The festival will let any viewer “armchair” travel to different countries, different time periods, and different cultures.” For more information about the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival, go to

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) All that flattery and fawning shouldn’t affect any decision you have to make. Keep your focus on the facts and ignore all the hyperbole, especially if it gets uncomfortably personal. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your Bovine instincts are on the mark about that “favor” you’re being asked to do. Agree to nothing unless you get a full explanation — which you would check out first, of course. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A somewhat unsettled recent period should give way to a smoother time going through the week. Use this quieter time to catch up on matters you might have had to let slide. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Feeling a little confused is understandable with all those mixed messages. Take time to list the questions you have. Then present them and insist on answers that make sense. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cupid can be very helpful for Lions seeking a love connection. The chubby cherub also brings warm and fuzzy feelings to paired Leos and Leonas who already share a special love line. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Travel is favored this week, whether you’ll be globe-trotting or taking a trip to a nearby getaway. You might be surprised (or maybe not) by who wants to be your traveling companion.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Getting advice on your next business-related move is a good idea, but only if your advisers are trustworthy. Get references that you can check out before you make any decisions. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Getting a boost in your self-esteem is one benefit that comes with a job well done. There are other plusses as well, including being noticed by all the right people. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Make time to deal with family matters, especially where they concern your elderly kinfolk. Being there for them from the start can help resolve problems sooner rather than later. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Getting a project started can often be difficult. But the good news is that you won’t want for lack of assistance from colleagues who would like to work with you. So, let them!
