RANCHO SANTA FE — The R.

Money was also raised to have World War II veteran Tom Rice return to Normandy so that he can make a return TOM RICE, jump.

He returned to San Diego after the war’s end and spent the next approximately 44 years teaching history and social studies in California. Rice became the subject of national news headlines last year when he made an assisted parachute jump into Normandy on the 75th anniversary of the invasion, at the age of 97. He became fit for the occasion by doing CrossFit exercises. “It’s an amazing feat,” Rice said of making the anniversary jump. “It rekindles an awful lot of activities that we get to think about, and I think about them a lot deeper now. Every year it gets deeper and deeper, I remember things I don’t even recall that happened that surrounded me that come forth and almost throw me out of bed.” For the Saturday, Jan. 25 event, Rice posed for photos with children and adults before

Encinitas City Council OKs parking lot for homeless By Tawny McCray
ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council voted 4-1 in a contentious marathon meeting in front of an overflow crowd Jan. 22 to approve a safe overnight parking lot for homeless people living out of their cars. The Safe Parking Program has driven a wedge in the community since it was first presented at
a council meeting in November. The lot, on Leichtag Commons on Saxony Road, would allow for a maximum of 25 cars from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. All participants are referred by area schools, churches and other local organizations and adults are run through sex offender registries. There will be on-site security, bathrooms with showers, and case management to help
people transition to permanent housing. The lot will be operated by Jewish Family Services and funded with a $256,000 HEAP grant awarded to the nonprofit. It would be the first of its kind in North County. More than 90 people spoke during public comment, with a few more people in support of the

Residents voice concerns over North Bluff development By Bethany Nash
DEL MAR — The Del Mar Planning Commission discussed the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) regarding the Marisol Specific Plan Initiative at its Jan. 14 meeting and residents in attendance voiced their concerns. “It is public practice of a draft EIR to have a planning commission meeting where public comment is encouraged and people are informed about the EIR,” Matt Bator, the principle planner, said. Most of the residents who spoke brought up their concerns with the EIR and advocated for their fellow residents to vote no for Measure G, the Marisol Specific Plan Initiative, on the upcoming ballot on March 3. The Marisol Specific Plan is all-inclusive regulatory plan that would allow for future development of the North Bluff. If approved, the Specific Plan will feature residential villas, commercial use, and “visitor-serving accommodations.” Marisol Specific Plan is a legislative document and an EIR is not required; however, the developers interested in the North Bluff requested to go through the process of an EIR. “What was requested of the city by the developers to start the process, to continue the process actually that was started with the Del Mar Resort,” Bator said. “At this point in time it is true that for the Initia-
‘Paw Walk’ at Botanic Garden set for Feb. 15 ENCINITAS — There’s only one day of the year when you can walk with your dog in the San Diego Botanic Garden. The eighth annual “5K Paw Walk in the Garden” will take place from 8 a.m. to noon Feb. 15. The Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) and the San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) will join paws to raise funds that support people, plants, and pets. The 5K Paw Walk is not a race. Walkers can cover the full 5 kilometer / 3.1 mile course, but that’s optional. You don’t need a dog to participate. There will be pet products, food (for people), treats (for dogs), information and displays for animal lovers, a pet first aid station, and (of course) dogs. Register yourself, your team, or for a virtual 5K Paw Walk in the Garden online at https://rchumanesociety.org/events/5k-pawwalk-in-the-garden/. Day of event registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and paws cross the starting line at 9 a.m. More information about the 5K Paw Walk in the Garden is available at RCHS at 389 Requeza Street or SDBG at 230 Quail Gardens Drive in Encinitas or at SDBGarden.org.
THE MARISOL RESORT would bring 65 hotel rooms and 31 villas to a 16.5-acre blufftop lot off of Via de la Valle. The resort would also include 22 affordable housing units and 10 low cost visitor accommodations, as well as 408 off-street parking spaces. Photo rendering courtesy of Zephyr Partners
tive CEQA is not required, but at some point in the future, if approved, this disclosure document about potential significant impacts to the environment will be required for an actual project.” The EIR highlights the impacts that should be avoided or mitigated in order to be less than significant.
The environmental topics which received the most public attention were Aesthetics, Geology and Soils, and Traffic/Transportation. City Councilwoman Terry Gaasterland spoke and said she was speaking as a “private citizen.” “This is just the beginning,” Gaasterland said. “Del Mar is easy prey with just a few hundred signatures
required to put a zoning change onto a ballot initiative … we want to be in control of this as a city where we can talk about and debate it bring it to the Design Review Board … the Design Review Board is reduced to advisory by this initiative … Don’t trade our bluffs for empty promises.” The EIR clarifies that any future project would be subject to Del Mar’s Local Coastal Program, which will address potential bluff issues such as erosion and protecting the shoreline. Although the initiative itself is not subject to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), if the initiative is approved the potential project will be subjected to the CEQA as well as review by the city of Del Mar. “I’m in favor of this measure for a number of reasons,” Del Mar resident Tim Haviland said. “Access to the bluffs, revenue for the city, an amenity that I think will be a huge enhancement for the city. I have run on those bluffs for years … you get to a point where you can run no farther because there is a fence there. This will open that up and give us access to the bluffs.” Zephyr, the builder of the initiative, has clarified that it is committed to preserving the bluff. “The Marisol Initiative is limited to legislative matters, it seeks approval of a community plan amendment, zoning map amendments, LCP amendments
San Dieguito Union high school selection window opens Feb. 13 ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) High School Selection window for the 2020-2021 school year will open at 8 a.m. Feb. 13 and will close on at 4 p.m. March 2. Students currently attending SDUHSD District schools should submit a high school selection during the window. This includes: • Grade 8 — All SDUHSD eighth grade students currently residing in the district must select a high school that they wish to attend in the fall of 2020. • Grades 9 to 11 — SDUHSD students currently attending a district high school who wish to change high schools must also make a selection. SDUHSD high school students who do not wish to change and will remain at their current high schools for fall 2020 do not need to make any selections during high school selection and will automatically be reenrolled in their current school. • Grades 8-11 students who reside within SDUHSD boundaries but who do not currently attend SDUHSD schools, including private and Rancho Santa Fe schools, must make a selection if they plan to attend
a SDUHSD high school in the fall of 2020. Students must currently reside within SDUHSD district boundaries to participate in high school selection. Parents and students seeking additional information about each high school are invited to attend individual high school information nights. Important dates and information sessions include: • Torrey Pines 6 p.m. Feb. 5 • Canyon Crest Academy, 6 p.m. Feb. 10 • La Costa Canyon, 6 p.m. Feb. 11 • San Dieguito Academy 6 p.m. Feb. 12 • Sunset School, 6 p.m. Feb. 13 • Lottery (if necessary) TBD March 11. Each high school information night will begin promptly. Families are encouraged to arrive early to avoid potential traffic or parking issues. It is the intent of the board to provide equitable educational opportunities for all students of the district. In order to maintain an equitable balance in the enrollment at each campus, the board established attendance boundaries for each school in SDUHSD. Boundaries of school
attendance areas in the district are as follows: 1. La Costa Canyon High School shall include the boundaries of the Encinitas and Cardiff school districts and the area north of Escondido Creek in Rancho Santa Fe district. 2. San Dieguito High School Academy (SDHSA) and Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) shall be open to all district residents in grades 9 to 12 on an equal basis through an open enrollment application process approved by the board of trustees. To be eligible to attend SDHSA or CCA, a student must have selected the school during the established high school selection window process. 3. Torrey Pines High School shall include the boundaries of the Del Mar, Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe School Districts, with the exception of the area north of Escondido Creek in the Rancho Santa Fe School District. Parents and students are encouraged to follow SDUHSD on Facebook at facebook.com/sduhsd and to check the SDUHSD website at sduhsd.net/ Parents--Students / H ig h- Sc hool- Select ion / index.html, for regular updates.
and the Specific Plan … Specifically, section 5.1.3 of the Specific Plan acknowledges that, ‘CEQA review is required by law for all the projects permits and administrative approvals, and states explicitly, because I wrote it that, ‘all feasible mitigation measures shall be implemented,’” David Watson, the attorney representing Zephyr, said. The initiative allows for development with a maximum height of 46 feet which would include 22 affordable housing units, 31 villas and 65 hotel rooms as well as some other elements. Zephyr has advertised the benefits this could potentially bring to
the community include $4.5 million in occupancy tax. “Del Mar doesn’t need to sell its soul,” Pam Slater-Price, Del Mar resident and former county supervisor, said. “It doesn’t need to sell itself for a few extra dollars … If you are a voter in Del Mar don’t sell out Del Mar for a few silver coins, it’s just not worth it.” The EIR will complete its 45-day review period on Feb. 3. Public comments will be accepted up until 5:30 that day. Comments must be submitted by the above deadline to mbator@ delmar.ca.us in order to become a part of the Draft EIR and its record of comments.

Endangered by AB 5: Your local newspaper columnist
F Reducing backcountry fire hazards By Marie Waldron
It’s easier to prevent wildfires than to control them once they’ve started. That’s why I introduced Assembly Bill 19, which will provide $25 million for vegetation management along county-maintained roads. Auto-related wildfires are a major problem in California. In 2016 and 2017, almost 25% of local wildfires were vehicle-related. The Carr fire, the state’s seventh largest, began when sparks from a flat tire ignited brush along a highway in Northern California. The fire killed eight people, burned over 200,000 acres, destroyed more than 1,500 structures, and cost over $1.6 billion. We can prevent many of these fires by eliminating the fuel source. AB 19 will establish a General Fund grant program to help county road maintenance departments and local fire districts in high Fire Hazard Severity Zones purchase vegetation management equipment to mow brush along county-maintained highways. Brush clearing along roads can also prevent the deaths of motorists attempting to flee during fire emergencies. According to North County Fire Protection District Chief Stephen Abbott,
who testified in favor of AB 19 before the Assembly Natural Resources Committee, San Diego County’s 2003 Cedar fire resulted in 13 deaths, mostly motorists trapped in their cars as they tried to escape the flames along the roadway. Future wildfires are certain, but many can be prevented and lives can be saved if we remove the combustible fuel source growing along our backcountry roadways.
human trafficking in the nation. Locally, recent studies indicate that human trafficking is the second-largest underground economy in San Diego County, after drug trafficking, generating over $800 million in profits. San Diego County is one of the 13 worst regions for human trafficking in the country, impacting 8,000 victims per year. Many victims are trafficked by gangs, the average age of entry is 16, and victims are typically trafficked for three years before they come to the attention of law enforcement. This repugnant industry can be defeated, but we need to raise awareness that trafficking is taking place all around us. We must be vigilant, and recognize that this scourge impacts our state and our local communities. HR 7 is a small part of this ongoing battle. With heightened law enforcement, increased awareness, education and vigilance, we can rein in human trafficking and hopefully, prevent more shattered lives.
Earlier this session I spoke on the Assembly Floor on House Resolution 7 (HR 7), that I jointly authored with Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D – San Bernardino). HR 7 declares January Human Trafficking Awareness Month in California, part of a nationwide effort to combat this growing menace. A form of modern slavery, human trafficking has grown 842% in the United States since 2007. Worldwide, there are over 40 million victims of human trafficking, 75% of the victims are women and girls, and Assembly Republican 25% are children. UnfortuLeader Marie Waldron, nately, California, with its R-Escondido, represents the harbors, coastlines and international border, has one 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature of the highest instances of

I was honored that my colleagues selected me Vice-Chair of the Board of Supervisors. Also on Tuesday, the County of San Diego and Tri-City Medical Center agreed to partner on a new psychiatric health facility in the North County.

This passed with a 3-2
voted, with Supervisor Gaspar and I voting against this measure. I want to keep our communities safe and healthy, but this is an overreach by the government that doesn’t address the actual issue. The Board’s action does not address the sales and use of illicit THC products that are causing the most harm to people across the Country. The County of San Diego should step up enforcement of the laws that are already in place, which are that no one under 21 should have access to any of these products. All in all, it was a quick and significant start to what promises to be a busy year. Jim Desmond represents District 5 on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors
rom Madera to Mill Valley, Eureka to Encinitas, Coalinga to Claremont, local columns are among the most popular features in newspapers that still survive in this era of Craigslist and eBay taking away classified advertising and many display ads moving to Google and Facebook. But now local columnists following in the large footsteps of the late icons Herb Caen of San Francisco and Leon Emo of Madera are suddenly an endangered species. Few newspapers, especially weeklies, can afford to pay these writers regular salaries for the valuable work they do in feeling out and revealing the pulse of their own communities, and many of them have other jobs or sources of income. Now a new state law best known as AB 5, authored by Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego threatens the very existence of this vital species, without whose popular appeal some surviving newspapers might wither away. Many small papers also employ similarly-situated part-timers — day traders or supermarket cashiers or medical assistants by day, reporters by night — to cover city councils and local boards governing everything from water and sewers to schools and building permits. Without them, these agencies might get little or no coverage and many areas could become de facto news deserts. Under AB 5, newspapers now must make such almost-volunteer workers into full-time employees if they are paid for more than 35 news articles or

Guardian of language small talk jean gillette
have a lovely friend who calls herself a “guardian of the language,” and she is. She teaches English to junior high students who, despite the best efforts of their parents and a host of skilled professionals, come to her saying they “brang” that book home. By the time she is through with them, the worst of them will at least appreciate that “brang” is not going to be found in the dictionary. While the grammar police have knocked on my door several times over the years, I try to maintain my membership as a fellow “guardian of the language.” I do my small part, correcting students on “bringed,” “brung” and “brang” and pointing out that while they may have done “good” they also did “well.” I thought I was holding up the flag by refraining from using words like “parenting” and remembering that “toward” and “anyway” shouldn’t end in s. Then just when I thought I was sneaking by, I bumped into two big-time linguists who have me wondering when they might come and unceremoniously rip the literacy stripes right off my sleeve. Celestine Sibley, a wonderful, now-deceased Atlanta journalist, fired off a commentary in her 80s about the “tacky” expression “you guys.” She heavily frowned on using “guys” as an all-inclusive noun for young and old, male and female. I was tempted to write her and point out that, as much as we would like to,
here in the hip melting pot of Southern California, most of us cannot claim a Southern upbringing and so do not have the luxury of using that graceful and accurate phrase, “y’all.” We must remain tacky but practical until a better West Coast group reference is coined. I’ll get right to work on that. Meanwhile, a friend sent an article from The Wall Street Journal by militant language guardian John Simon. It was a review of the newest grammar-police Bible, “Modern American Usage” by the late Wilson Follett. Had I harbored any serious illusions that I take my language seriously, Simon and Follett brought me up short. Of the book’s appendix, Simon says, “Don’t skip it: Such a heedless appendectomy would cost you — in a mere 24 pages — the best possible summary of what grammar, syntax and good usage are about.” I’ll just bet he doesn’t read a lot of romance novels or tabloid magazines. He goes on to speak harshly to those who use “viability” as a “pretentious and nonsensical” word for “validity” or “feasibility.” Ouch. The article goes on to chastise those who confuse “parameter” and “perimeter.” He even caught the book’s author in a “rare lapse.” I know there are plenty of word watchers out there who have cut me a goodly amount of slack up until now. I want you to know I appreciate your forbearance. I am truly glad Simon is out there fighting the good fight, but I’m majorly tickled that he doesn’t hang out around here with us guys.

RPG adds to Pacific Station holdings the strengths and appeal of the location.” In 2019, RPG transformed 4,010 square feet of restaurant space in Pacific Station into an coworking space that also serves as the firm’s new headquarters. Tenants at the new coworking location have full access to RPG’s amenities. “We live in Encinitas and we are here to stay,” said Robinson. “By establishing our headquarters right in the heart of this city we love, we are demonstrating our belief in the strength and health of the market and we will continue to invest in the community by acquiring well-positioned assets such as the office building at Pacific Station.” The office was built as a walkable, community-focused environment with access to retail and dining options within Pacific Station and surrounding downtown Encinitas. According to Robinson, four of the five office spaces within the newly acquired building are currently
leased to health care, real estate and technology tenants. RPG plans to implement improvements to the offices, as well as lease the last available square-footage in the building. In 2019, the firm acquired six properties in the area, including fu•sion, a 121,541 square-foot modern office/industrial building with the largest amenity space in Carlsbad for a product of its type; as well as Avenida Crossing, a newly renovated, multi-tenant contemporary creative office campus. RPG plans to deliver a full slate of projects in its home base of Encinitas in 2020, including the rebranding of the Encinitas boxing gym to the Encinitas Wellness Center, as well as entitlements for a mixeduse project on the BMW Encinitas site owned by the firm. In 2020, RPG is also renovating an 11-unit Leucadia apartment complex and is currently in the entitlement phase on an additional mixed-use project in Leucadia.

ENCINITAS — RPG, an Encinitas-based owner, operator and developer of commercial real estate, has expanded its portfolio of creative and value-add assets in North County. The company has acquired an office building at Pacific Station in Encinitas, where the firm currently owns a large retail and restaurant section of the 100,000 squarefoot mixed use center. RPG previously acquired the 39,000 squarefoot retail and restaurant portion of Pacific Station in 2018. The company now owns all the commercial space in the mixed-use office, retail and residential center. “The acquisition of this office building is directly in line with our ongoing strategy of owning well-located, modern, creative, and value-add assets,” said Adam Robinson, founder and president of RPG. “Because the office space is adjacent to additional assets already owned by our firm, including our new company headquarters, we are aware of
DEL MAR — At its Jan. 13 meeting, Del Mar City Council unanimously agreed upon new City Manager Christa Johnson. Previously assistant city manager in Laguna Beach, Johnson has over 22 years of experience with a background working for the city of Windsor and the county and city of Alameda. After current City Manager Scott Huth announced his intentions in June to retire next month after eight years, the council began an extensive interview process to find a replacement. “We have gone through a long process of interviewing a city manager,” City Councilman Dave Druker said at the meeting. “We as a council unanimously decided to make Christa Johnson, the current assistant manager in Laguna Beach, an offer. We have negotiated a contract with her and she accepted that contract.” Johnson will receive an annual base salary of $240,000. “Obviously, people are going to go, ‘Oh my god, $240,000? Come on guys you should have been able to find somebody a lot cheaper than that.’” Druker said. “The question is, what would that person have been like compared to Christa? We obviously had a choice and we decided it is more important that we have an excellent city manager.” Johnson grew up in a military family and said she feels very comfortable in new environments. She said is excited to get to know San Diego County and Del Mar in the coming weeks. “I want to know all things Del Mar,” Johnson said. “I have a collaborative style and I am very interested in hearing what their (Del Mar community) ideas are and their interests are in maintaining the quality of life there.” Mayor Ellie Haviland weighed in, acknowledging that Johnson’s experience working in an ocean community could not come at a better time for Del Mar. “It in many ways is a perfect storm that Christa was available (and) had reached the right experience in her career at a time when Del Mar can benefit from her experiences and her skill set,” Haviland said. Druker motioned for a vote on the proposed contract and hiring Johnson as the new city manager, which was then seconded by Haviland. The council unanimously agreed 6-0 to hire Johnson, who will begin as city manager on Feb. 12.

Kathryn the Grape now a regular at Encinitas Library By Hoa Quach
ENCINITAS — After more than a year of playing children’s music in and around Encinitas, Kathryn Cloward recently signed on to become a regular act at the Encinitas Library. Cloward, who has a following of tens of thousands of fans on social media, is a native to San Diego County and a longtime performer and songwriter. Her music focuses on positivity while also instilling mindfulness and kindness in young children, she said. Cloward said her hope is to bring joy and a love of music to those who attend her performances at the Encinitas Library and surrounding areas. “It has been really lovely to know that I’m having an impact on children and adults alike,” Cloward said. “That is my greatest hope.” Additionally she is a children’s book author, so guests who attend Cloward’s performance at the library can also expect stories. It’s something Cloward herself said she remembers as a child growing up. In fact, it’s some of her fondest memories. “When I was a little girl, reading with my mom and singing with my grandma are some of my happiest memories,” Cloward said. “I want to provide positive feel-good stories and songs for multiple generations to bond.

Bim was born in Watertown, New York in 1925, and moved to Los Angeles as a young teen in 1938. He joined the Navy halfway through WW2 at the age of 17, becoming an anti-aircraft gunner on a small aircraft carrier, and saved his ship from Kamikaze attack during the Battle Leyte Gulf, in the Pacific. After the war, he married Helen McMasters in Los Angeles and got his degree in Physics at UCLA. Together they raised four children in Topanga Canyon near Santa Monica, as he worked in the electronics industry. In 1963, the family moved to the Del Mar area. Soon after, he started the first of a series of entrepreneurial businesses in

me that their children talk about me when they’re not at my events, that makes me feel good because that means they feel good.” Jayne Henn, branch manager at Encinitas Library, said she chose to bring Cloward into the facility regularly because of the impact she has made on library-goers. “Kathryn the Grape brings positivity, peace, and mindfulness to children and grownups through music, story and song,” Henn said. “Our customers enjoy being part of a program with an ‘extended family’ feel. We wanted to regularly offer Kathryn's special blend of musicality and mindfulness to toddlers, who are just
Sorrento Valley. He made many technical advances that were important to the international electronics industry, speeding the development of mobile phones and other technology, world-wide. He was a pioneer in the field of microelectronics, and his businesses provided employment, opportunity and inspiration to many people. Bim and Helen were nurturing and creative people, who encouraged and assisted all deserving people who entered their lives. Their home had a steady stream of interesting people, mostly all quite younger than themselves, whom Bim and Helen thought of as family. They were very special. Their absence is keenly felt, and their lives have touched many for the better. Bim and Helen are survived by Ken Wallace, Charlie Wallace both of San Diego, Wendy Borders and Mini Cooper (their dog) of Kansas City, and Norman Wallace of Auburn, CA. They also had 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

learning to interact with others. We also appreciate Kathryn's ability to teach caregivers how to develop mindfulness in children, and how to model mindfulness for the very young.” Encinitas resident Kim Mazza is just one of the many parents who attends Cloward’s performances regularly with her young children. Mazza, who has lived in the coastal city for eight years, said her children immediately connected to Cloward’s music and messages. “David loves Kathryn the Grape,” Mazza said. “He instantly connected with her. Something about her energy just met his perfectly. David is a very high-en-
ergy child and doesn’t sit still for most performances. I love the message she sends to children and is a nice reminder for us as adults. We are so lucky to have access to her and her music.” But, Cloward isn’t just limited to performing at the Encinitas Library. San Diegans can also catch her perform regularly at the Birch Aquarium. She also has other plans for 2020, including re-hatching her album “Kathryn the Grape Let’s Sing Together” and releasing new books of her “Let’s Read Together” series. She also plans to translate her books to Spanish and Japanese to inspire other children and families. Cloward also hopes to perform at other libraries in San Diego County, she said. “I want to be accessible to more children,” said Cloward, who is a mother herself. “I can reach children all over the world with my messages of love and joy through the power of visual media and that’s a major goal for me this year. My hope for everything I do is to help people feel good about themselves and each other.” Guests can attend Kathryn the Grape’s Musical Storytime the second Thursday of each month from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. The Encinitas Library is located at 540 Cornish Drive in Encinitas.

A rts &Entertainment Photo book subject of latest library talk Strutters step up as concert fill-in By Alexander Wehrung
RANCHO SANTA FE — Poway resident, art teacher, explorer and photographer Jessica Johnson paid a visit to the Rancho Santa Fe Library on Jan. 25 to present pictures featured in her book, “Abandoned San Diego.” The book is a collection of photographs of buildings and locations in San Diego that have been, as the title implies, abandoned or otherwise fallen into decrepitude. Abandoned locations “have an old history to them, but they have stories; it’s just their story is now in the past,” Johnson said. “But I love trying to piece together the old story of these places: Who used to live there, who were those people, what did they do, and kind of give it a new life.” Some locations featured in her slideshow included the Hubbard mine, Eagle and High Peak mine, Old Highway 80, the Dyar House, the San Luis Rey Pioneer Cemetery and the California Theater. Johnson has found locations to photograph through a combination of intuition, research and outside tips. A recent favorite location she photographed was Rum Runner’s Cave, a tunnel used for booze-smuggling during Prohibition. While Johnson showed off her photography, she also

told stories about incidents that occurred while she and her friends explored some of the presented locations, such when her friend disturbed a beehive and Johnson discovered that by acting calmly, the bees wouldn’t sting them. Or when she and a friend were charged by a pit bull, which its owner called back before it could attack them. Johnson has been taking photos of such locations in San Diego for the better part of a decade. She has been posting these photos to her website, hiddensand-
iego.net, which she founded with the initial goal of encouraging people to adventure outside and which she manages jointly with her brother. The event was part of the Rancho Santa Fe Library’s Author Talks series, which features authors speaking about their work. This event drew about two dozen or so attendees, who sat and listened attentively as Johnson shared the individual histories of the locations she has photographed. Johnson’s father was also in attendance, beaming at her with pride. Last August, Johnson received a People in Preservation award from the Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO) for her work. “My goal is to just be self-sufficient and comfortable living off this and to make as big of an impact as I can positively, for the environment and for people in mental health.” “The more people’s lives that I can touch, and knowing that I pulled them out of some negativity, any animal or local preserve that I’ve helped protect, then I know that I’ve done the right thing.” “I hope that everyone goes out and explores our city, because there’s so much cool stuff to see,” Johnson said. Her website is hiddensandiego.net.

The Village Church put on a jazz show on Jan. 24, featuring the New Orleans-style jazz group Side Street Strutters as part of its Community Concert series. The event was initially slated to feature singer Shaun Johnson performing a tribute to the Rat Pack musicians, but he could not attend due to a high fever. Instead, the Strutters came in his place, after Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe president Gail Kendall was notified by the booking agency she’d contacted that the Strutters were available to play in Johnson’s stead. The band performed several famous jazz pieces, including Benny Goodman’s “Sing, Sing, Sing,” “Livery Stable Blues” — the first-ever jazz recording to be commercially released — “Blue Skies,” “What a Wonderful World,” “A Night in Tunisia,” “A Tisket, a Tasket,” “At Last,” “Caravan” and “America the Beautiful.” The Strutters are otherwise known for performing at Disneyland; saxophonist and band leader Robert Verdi joked that they have probably played around 17,000 different iterations of “It’s a Small World” by now. Side Street Strutter regulars (according to the

band’s website) that performed, other than Verdi, included his brother, clarinetist Vince Verdi, drummer Paul Johnson, bassist Bruce Lett and singer Meloney Collins. Guest musicians included trombonist Ryan Dragon, trumpeter Chris Eble and pianist Jason Wanner. The band read their music on iPads attached to stands in lieu of traditional sheet music. “Every time I get a chance to play with the Side Street Strutters, it’s a blast,” said Collins, who quickly became a crowd favorite, while also changing into different outfits between some of the songs. “This place in particular is
very warm and receptive, and they give you a glass of wine! They’re really kind, so yeah, we had a great time, and it’s such a privilege to be able to sing this music and perform this music for a living. I’m really lucky and blessed.” When asked about her favorite part about performing, Collins said, “Just sharing the music and telling a story through the music and watching people enjoy it and everyone being connected on a singular idea for just a minute. From all walks of life, we can all come together and agree and just enjoy the moment of good music. And that’s magical, I love it.”

Film posters designed by 8th-grade students taking a graphic design class were posted along the theater’s walls. “Libertas” covers several subjects centered on the D-Day invasion, such as the film’s writer/producer/narrator Machado’s time training to re-enact a World War II parachute jump, Rice’s and other veterans’ experiences during the war and D-Day’s legacy. The scene showing Rice’s anniversary jump earned applause from the near-filled auditorium. After the screening, there was a Q&A session with Machado, Rice and
Honor Flight chair Julie Brightwell, during which Machado explained that she was friends with several World War II veterans, and making the film was her way of thanking them. When asked why he chose to jump again, Rice said it was because he considers himself a risk-taker. He recounted that one of the most memorable parts of returning to Normandy was being “adopted” by three French communities — Rice’s ancestry can be traced back to France. He also said that of all his fellow Normandy co-jumpers, only 3% are left, and of that group, only eight are from California. When asked what he would do differently about his next jump, Rice responded, “Make sure everything is safe, good and safe! ’Cause in 10 seconds, you could be dead if you mistreat a parachute, you know?”
ost people call it winter, but here in Southern California, we call it whale-watching season. December through March is the optimum time to see some of the thousands of gray whales that migrate from their feeding grounds in the Bering Sea to the warm lagoons of Baja California. Here they give birth to their calves and prepare for the return trip to Alaskan waters — a round-trip that totals 10,000 miles to 12,000 miles. Lucky for us, we don’t have to travel far to see these gray whales, as well as several types of dolphins, perhaps a shark or even a blue whale. Just head to the Oceanside Harbor (https:// www.oceansidewhalewatching.com) or Dana Point Harbor (https://danawharf.com) where whale-watching tours leave several times daily. Spotting gray whales off our coast has thankfully become commonplace, which means that this once-endangered species is thriving. Gray whales can be as long as 45 feet and weigh up to nearly 100,000 pounds, so it’s no hohum experience when one of these leviathans surfaces next to a whale-watching boat.

In the game of wine, it’s France and Italy vs. the US taste of wine frank mangio
aving the wines of these 3 countries to compare and compete against each other is like having the NFL Super Bowl, NBA playoffs and MLB World Series go at it at the same time and in the same space. France and Italy, aka “old world” wines, and the U.S. (read California new world wines) are the wine heavyweight champions of the world. These three regions pinpoint and focus on all that is great in the world of wine. The Italians were the first of the three countries to introduce and develop fine wine to the civilized world. Etruscan tribes based in Central Italy about 800BC emigrated to what is now France. Later, Roman legions, in their thirst for power and territory, found France to be a garden for wine grapes. They settled in the Rhone Valley, Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Loire Valley. France now ranks first among wine-producing countries worldwide. It
brings to the table elegance and a certain snobbery to wine, rewarding wine “royalty” with a system of “first growth” favoritism that lives to this day. In the Bordeaux district, luxury is the standard ingredient in wines, along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Verdot. As for Italy, you have a choice of over 370 varieties of grapes and some 384,000 vineyards, from hundreds of hectares (acres) to your neighbor’s backyard. Italy knew about the link with native foods and local wines long before it was thought of here. Twenty districts are all of distinct character, from Trentino in the north to Sicily in the south. The celebrity district is Tuscany, home of Chianti, Brunello and Vino Noble di Montepulciano. The leading grape is Sangiovese, reportedly used in all wine that the Italian government recommends. The years 2015 and 2016 are the best vintages in decades with all weather fronts aligned to perfection. When U.S. wines are talked about, the conversation most often is directed to California’s Napa and Sonoma districts. Discovery began with French and Italian wine makers in the 1800s who took a chance on
room ragout risotto cake. Easily the highlight of the dinner was Chef Serrano’s Braised Short Ribs with creamy polenta, gorgonzola, and fig compote. The marbling of the short ribs with the tartness of the gorgonzola, and sweetness of the fig was perfectly complemented with the 2014 Daniele Conterno Barolo from the Piemonte region with a cherry hint and leathery earthiness on the palate. A perfect sweet and savory combo! The dinner finished out with Papi’s Tiramisu and Ancarani “Uva Pessa” Centisimino Passito from the Emilia Romagna region. Upcoming Craftsman Tavern dinners include a four-course Redemption Whiskey Dinner on March 25. Details at (760) 4522000.

and price scares, there should always be an increased number of brands, supplies and public demand for quality wine at affordable prices. As Wine Spectator’s Editor and Publisher recently proclaimed, “It’s time for wine lovers to stand up and be counted in their support of our greatest beverage!” Craftsman Tavern hosts 5-course Italian feast Craftsman Tavern GM Mike Cusey knew exactly what to do when Alluvial Wines’ San Diego Account Manager Bryan Taylor said he had some exceptional Italian Wines. Mike reached out to his Italian Executive Chef Sergio Serrano to create a five-course Italian feast. Taylor, who has a passion for Italian wines, was able to secure select low production high quality wines for the dinner that he called “Royalty Wines.”
First up was a Clara C Brut Prosecco paired with a mini charcuterie plate. The Prosecco from this womanowned and operated winery was pale pink in color with velvety micro bubbles and fruit aromas on the nose and palate of peaches and apricots. The next two wines were from the Baracchi winery hailing from Tuscany. A side note in addition to making great wines, Baracchi is famous for its training of hunting birds. The first of the Barachhi wines was the Olillo Red Blend, a baby Super Tuscan, with equal parts of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Second was the Smeriglio Sangiovese benefitting from small batch production in French Oak barrels vs larger casks. These wines were paired with a simple homemade pasta spaghetti plate with pecorino cheese and black pepper and a mush-

North County’s Lynch mines Super Bowl gold with 49ers
t’s among the hottest T-shirts in the San Francisco Bay area for a team which has advanced to Super Bowl 54, thanks to the handiwork of general manager John Lynch. It reads “Mobile to Miami” and it illustrates how far the 49ers have traveled with a roster constructed by Lynch. But it could just as easily read “Del Mar to Miami.” Lynch, a former twosport standout at Torrey Pines High School, has his fingerprints on a squad which faces the Kansas City Chiefs in South Florida this Sunday, Feb. 2. But this time last year Lynch, and his coaching staff, were down south at the Senior Bowl in Alabama. After going 4-12 in 2018, the 49ers’ staff was tasked
Padres spring training on TV and radio REGION — The San Diego Padres on Jan. 23 announced their broadcast schedule for spring training, featuring 29 preseason games that will be available to fans via television, radio or audio webcast. Fox Sports San Diego (FSSD) will televise 13 games, including 10 FSSD live broadcasts and three simulcasts. The first televised game of spring training will be Feb. 25, when the Padres take on the Oakland Athletics at the Peoria Sports Complex. The final spring TV broadcast will feature the Padres and the Seattle Mariners in Peoria, with the Padres serving as the visiting team on March 22. Padres play-by-play broadcaster Don Orsillo returns to the booth for all spring telecasts, while former Padres Mark Grant and Mark Sweeney will split time in the analyst seat. Former MLB pitcher Bob Scanlan will once again provide analysis and reports from beyond the dugout. All televised Padres games on FSSD will also be available on the Fox Sports GO Streaming App. Padres radio broadcasts will continue to be broadcast on 97.3 FM The Fan. Ted Leitner and Jesse Agler will return to the booth for playby-play and color commentary in addition to analysis provided by Tony Gwynn Jr. The club’s English flagship station will broadcast at least 15 Cactus League games this year, with the first Spring radio broadcast taking place on Feb. 22 and concluding March 22. The Padres will make at least 10 free-of-charge audio webcasts available on padres.com for games that will not be broadcast on Fox Sports San Diego or 97.3 FM The Fan.
sports talk jay paris with helping players prepare for their final college game. It’s a responsibility which goes to an organization coming off a disastrous season. Chargers fans — still any out there? — know the benefits that role can bring. Following a 4-12 season in 2003, then-coach Marty Schottenheimer and colleagues aided the Senior Bowl. It was there they became smitten with Philip Rivers, the soon-to-be, freeagent quarterback who recently exited his Rancho Santa Fe residence for Flor-
HOMELESS CONTINUED FROM 1
their children go to school with your children, you just don’t know they’re homeless, you don’t know they’re sleeping in their cars.” Anthony White, a 29-year-old husband, father, and Marine Corps veteran, said he previously spent eight months homeless and living in his car in North County. He said he wanted to help dispel some of the stigma surrounding the homeless population, namely that people fear them and don’t look at them like they’re human beings. “I wasn’t suffering from addiction or mental illness just the consequences of failed planning, but I was criminalized for being homeless,” White said. “If we stay overwhelmed because it looks scary or hard, we won’t solve this problem.” Opponent Donna Fazio DiBenedetto said the project is built on too many assumptions including that the city will be able to find housing for the partici-
Lynch could play, too. He’s a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a safety with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Denver Broncos. Just maybe, he gets the hall call the day before the 49ers claim their sixth Super Bowl title. Like Lynch has before every game since being hired in 2017, he’ll receive a good-luck text from Solana Beach’s John Kentera. Lynch always returns it quickly. “Sometimes it’s more about family than football,” said Kentera, a sports talk show host on 97.3 FM The Fan. Kentera’s link to Lynch is strong. He coached him in football and baseball at Torrey Pines and his family would house-sit when Lynch’s parents were travpants and it will not lead to an increase in homeless coming to the area, and uncertainties like where the people are going to go during the day. “You’re obviously not quite ready for this project and there’s no reason to rush into it, none whatsoever,” she said. Jeff Morris said the city has lied to them to the point where there is “no trust level” and they’re ready for a change on the dais. “Our motivation is to get rid of you,” he said. “If you’re not going to work with us what good are you? … You guys are not doing your job properly and we’re just done. We’re over it.” Prior to the meeting, thousands of people signed a petition to stop the lot from going forward and the City Council has been threatened with litigation by a community-lead group called NC3 that alleges that the council falsely claimed a Shelter Crisis, and that they violated a number of different measures by moving forward with this without public comment.

eling. Lynch’s drive was evident as a teenager. “He just had a tremendous passion to play ball,” Kentera said. “We would be watching TV and every time there was a commercial, he would do 100 sit-ups.” Now Lynch’s team, which went 13-3, makes the NFL sit up Lynch and take notice. He was named the league’s executive of the year by the Pro Football Writers Association. Lynch always ran with the winners, starting at Torrey Pines and then at Stanford University where he played for one-time Del Mar resident Dennis Green, and then for legendary coach Bill Walsh. Councilman Tony Kranz, who was the sole vote against the program, said it’s been a very difficult process and the division in the community “breaks my heart.” He said that because of a HEAP grant and an urgency to get a program in place the council jumped through “very critical, very important steps that involve bringing the community
Save Walsh replacing Green for Lynch’s senior year, maybe Lynch isn’t heading for South Beach. The Florida Marlins had drafted Lynch as a pitcher and his future was on the diamond, but Walsh reached out to Lynch, who was originally recruited to Stanford as a quarterback by coach Jack Elway, John’s father. Lynch decided to play for Walsh and he continued his switch to defense after playing a few games at safety his junior year. Following a solid senior season, he was drafted by the Buccaneers and Was part of a unit which won Super Bowl 37 in San Diego. After he retired, Lynch, a nine-time Pro Bowler, became a star calling NFL games on FOX. But he changed gears once again to
become an NFL executive. Among Lynch’s signature moves were trading for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and drafting defensive end Nick Bosa with the second pick last year. “He’s looking for guys that play hard every play and don’t take plays off, which is just like him,” Kentera said. “He likes guys with a good attitude. “He was always such a good teammate and you can tell his players have a lot of respect for him. He relates to the players well and part of that is Johnny’s track record as a player.” Lynch’s huddles now come in an executive suite. What would be sweet for Kentera, and others in North County calling Lynch a friend, is him becoming a Super Bowl champion once again.
along.” Mayor Catherine Blakespear said she didn’t think the council cut corners and she supports the lot because she believes it is the moral thing to do. “And fundamentally it comes down to compassion is as compassion does,” she said. “I have frequently had the thought about the 16th Century proverb … ‘There but for the grace of
God go I’ … It’s a recognition that the misfortune that has befallen someone else could come to you and it can come to any of us.” The lot could be operational as soon as Jan. 30. There will be an evaluation of the lot in May at which point the council can vote to extend the contract for three additional fourmonth periods, ending in May of next year.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You need to be certain that all the right conditions are in place before you take that first step. It can’t hurt to listen to good advice from those who have your best interests at heart. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Be careful not to get involved in other people’s disputes unless you know the facts behind the disagreements. That’s the best way to be assured of making wise and honest decisions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You still need to be careful about how you’re going to spend those energy reserves you finally got around to restoring. Best advice: Avoid overdoing it. Let things take their course. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspect continues to favor travel — alone or with that special person. So if you’ve been putting off making those getaway plans, it’s still a good time to get started on them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Those so-called golden opportunities that continue to dazzle the Lion still need to be carefully checked out. Be suspicious about anything that looks like the “perfect” prospect. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Changes at the workplace could make it more difficult to do things the way you prefer. But the wise Virgo who shows some flexibility could find it paying off in a big way.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might want to check out the explanation you were given for a sudden shift in your duties. There’s a possibility that you haven’t been told all the facts that you deserve to know. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Having confidence in your abilities is important, especially when you could be facing a new challenge, whether it’s in the workplace or in a personal relationship. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new work-related opportunity might not be all that it seems. Before making any decisions, you might want to check with others who have had some experience in that area. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A situation involving someone close could benefit from your timely intervention. Avoid being judgmental. There’ll be plenty of time later for those “little talks” you like to have. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Travel could be a surprise element in that new project. Be prepared for other previously undisclosed aspects that also might come to light as you proceed with the work. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Try to balance your work-related responsibilities with the time you’re spending on your recently revived social life. An old friend might be planning to return after a long absence. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sensitivity makes you aware of the needs of others.

OCEANSIDE — With a like-minded focus on helping all North County residents become engaged in their health, Tri-City Medical Center has spent the last three years collaborating with the American Heart Association. “We want to encourage more people to take ownership of their own heart and brain health and pursue a healthy lifestyle,” Aaron Byzak, Tri-City Medical Center’s Chief External Affairs Officer, said. One of the American Heart Association’s goals is to ensure that your freeway exit doesn’t determine your health. “The American Heart Association envisions a North County where heart disease and stroke are a thing of the past,” Stacy Weaver, American Heart Association Executive Director, said. “Where healthy choices are equitable and accessible. We are working to make this a reality.” “Tri-City Medical came to us to see how we could together start a program for the North County market-

place to elevate awareness around health and wellness,” Weaver said. One of the most successful efforts the collaboration touts is training the community in hands-on CPR. “We are approaching having trained 1,000 people in bystander CPR,” Byzak said. “Early in my
career, I worked in Emergency Medical Services for seven years. Often when our ambulance would arrive on a scene of a cardiac arrest, there would be 10 people standing around doing nothing. If those bystanders had been trained in CPR, some of those patients would have had a decent chance
of survival. We can’t stress enough the importance of being trained in hands-only CPR.” Another successful venture between Tri-City Medical Center and the American Heart Association has been the North County Heart & Stroke Walk, which last year attracted a little more than

Pet of the Week Staying true to his roots, Magnus, which means “great” in Latin, is simply that, great. In fact, if we created an acronym for this great kitty, the ‘G’ would stand for gentle. The ‘R’ would stand for relaxed. The ‘E’ would be for engaging, how could you look away from his bright eyes? The ‘A’ would stand for awe-inspiring. And the ‘T’ would be for truly worth it. This 12-month-old beauty shines in his black silky coat and is looking for an equally great family with whom to go home. His adoption fee is $139. All pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center are vaccinated and micro-chipped for identification. Kennels
are open daily Monday through Wednesday, from 1 to 6 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, from 1 to 7 p.m.; Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).
