Library hosts best-selling author Rowley

School layoffs tied to decline in enrollment

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — On May 15, The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild in partnership with Warwick’s in La Jolla hosted an author event featuring Steven Rowley at the Rancho Santa Fe Library. The New York Times bestselling author was quick to point out that his newest novel, “The Editor,” is not a sequel to his first bestselling work, “Lily and the Octopus.” Before diving into “The Editor,” Rowley Rowley shared that “Lily and the Octopus,” a story he wrote which helped him wade through the grief of losing his beloved dog, was translated into 19 languages. Currently, “Lily and the Octopus” is being adapted into a feature film. “I never imagined then that the book would go on to become a national bestseller,” Rowley said. When it was time to think of a crafting a second novel, Rowley thought of a story about a young writer who had written a very candidly autobiographical book about his own mother — and what might happen if that type of book spiraled a little bit out of the main character’s control. While it was a good start, Rowley’s instincts told him that the events he had in mind were not interesting enough to sustain a novel. “I was looking for that sort of extra bit of magTURN TO AUTHOR ON 7

RANCHO SANTA FE — The discussion of teacher layoffs at R. Roger Rowe first began in February with preliminary layoffs to meet the March 15 deadline as part of the Education Code (California Department of Education). Following mandated hearings, the layoffs were made permanent at the Rancho Santa Fe School District board meeting on May 9. A total of 16 teachers were laid off effective in the new school year — seven were classroom teachers, and the remainder were part-time teachers or specialists. According to superintendent Donna Tripi, the layoffs were fueled by declining enrollment. Some of those who received those notices have already been offered temporary contracts because three teachers will be on leave for the next school year. Tripi said when she started her position of superintendent on Jan. 2, one of the district priorities shared with her at the time of hire and subsequent board meetings was the district budget. The goal: not having a deficit going into the next school year. “We had a deficit for this year and last year — we felt like next year's budget needed to be a balanced budget,” said Tripi, adding that she met with teachers and talked to administrators. Tripi said she looked at the school operations where they could provide services with more efficiency while keeping the district’s programs intact. A result of her in-depth research were the layoffs because of declining enrollment. Tripi explained that a school’s budget is mostly personnel at around 80% to 85% with the remaining expenditures going toward items such as supplies and maintenance.

Forest maintenance in RSF faces challenges By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — A 300-page comprehensive study was recently completed for the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Forest Health and Preservation Committee. Spearheaded by Dudek and Tree San Diego, the findings outlined a detailed Forest Health Study. While the study was in the hands of Forest and Health Preservation Committee

months ago, Bill Beckman, chair of the Forest Health and Preservation Committee, wanted all Covenant residents to be aware of the findings since many of the end-goals of the study involve resident action. It’s estimated that 95% of the forest in the Covenant is on private property. The Forest Health Study revealed an estimated 266,000 trees in Rancho Santa Fe.

Could too many taxes turn this blue state red?

On San Onofre, feds need to do their job, but so does California Senator

Pat Bates

republican from Laguna Niguel

T

here is broad consensus among North County residents about the need to move the nuclear waste of the closed San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) to a safe and secure location. As many people know, the waste from SONGS sits near an active earthquake fault line, adjacent to the heavily trafficked Interstate 5 and the Pacific Ocean, and sandwiched between densely populated San Diego and Orange counties. The continued storage of SONGS’ waste on-site poses a threat to surrounding communities and beyond. For years, I and many other local and state elected officials have urged the federal government to take possession of nuclear waste from SONGS and other sites across the country and store that waste at a safe location. I previously served on the San Onofre Community Engagement Panel when I was a county supervisor. I worked with my fellow panelists to address the issues raised by the continued storage of SONGS’ waste on-site. In 2016, my first full year in the state Senate, I authored Senate Joint Resolution 23 that urged Congress to pass the Interim Consolidated Storage Act. The Act would have paired a region that is volunteering to host an interim waste storage facility with communities around the country that have nuclear waste demanding a better storage solution. Unfortunately, the Act did not become law, nor did

a similar attempt by former Congressman Darrell Issa in 2017. Other attempts have also failed. Nevertheless, there are signs this year in Washington, D.C., that something could be done. President Trump has again proposed funding to restart licensing for Nevada’s Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository and fund a “robust interim storage program.” Congress in 1987 designated Yucca Mountain as the nation’s sole site to permanently store nuclear waste due to its remote location. But in 2011, President Obama halted federal funding for the project at the urging of U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. In the House of Representatives, Congressman Mike Levin has introduced House Resolution 2995 that would prioritize the removal of SONGS’ waste away from our region. In the U.S. Senate, Sen. John Barrasso has proposed jump-starting licensing hearings for Yucca Mountain. The fate of these efforts remain to be seen. The bottom line is this – the federal government must do its job to develop safe storage areas for the country’s nuclear waste, but the State of California also needs to do its job. For as long as nuclear waste remains at SONGS,

the state has a responsibility to ensure that local first responders are prepared should they need to respond to an incident. That is why I authored Senate Bill 465 this year that would ensure continued funding for off-site emergency response planning, training, and exercises related to SONGS. Specifically, SB 465 makes it clear in state law that local governments will continue to receive funding for costs incurred as a result of carrying out activities that ensure the safety of the communities surrounding SONGS. These activities include emergency responder training and drills, radiological monitoring equipment and analysis software, crisis management systems, and emergency notification systems. The good news is that the state Senate approved SB 465 on a strong bipartisan vote on May 23. However, the bill still needs the approval of the Assembly and Gov. Newsom this year before it can become law. While we wait for federal officials to enact a longterm nuclear waste solution, I hope the Assembly and the Governor can approve SB 465 this year to help keep everyone safe. Sen. Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) represents the 36th District in the California Legislature.

he more elections go by with Californians electing huge Democratic majorities to the state Legislature and no Republicans to statewide offices, the more secure elected Democrats feel. The more secure they feel, it seems, the more taxes they want to impose on the folks who put them in office. It’s not enough that California already has among the highest income and sales taxes in America, ranking the state No. 11 among the 50 states in terms of overall tax burden. Only the property tax limits of Proposition 13 keep California away from the top of the list. But this year legislative Democrats, who saw one of their number recalled over a smallish 12-cent increase in the gasoline tax imposed two years ago, have sought to charge a slew of new, previously unthinkable taxes. Their original list included levies on new tires, sugary soda, firearms, water, prescription painkillers, lawyers’ services, car batteries, estates valued at more than $3.5 million, and oil and natural gas extraction. The water tax to ensure clean drinking supplies everywhere is dead, essentially killed by the state’s $21 billion budget surplus. The lawyer tax won’t go far. The list is shrinking fast. Some of these ideas actually might make sense at times when the state is short of cash. Just not when it’s running a huge budget surplus. The causes behind some of these tax proposals are noble enough, but if lawmakers really want funds for the causes

california focus thomas d. elias they would help, why not use some of those surplus billions? Or is the state’s rainy-day fund, where most of the extra dollars now go, more important than, say, pure drinking water? Cleaning up the fouled water now coming from the taps of about 1 million Californians was to be the sole purpose of a new “Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund” paid for by a tax on water meters. The fee on new tires, already $1.75 per tire, would rise to $3.25 in another proposed increase, the money earmarked for grants to prevent zinc-bearing “rubber crumbs” produced by ground-up old tires from fouling ground water supplies and the air. Excess zinc can create kidney and pancreas damage. The soda tax was back this year for its third go-round, sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Richard Bloom of Santa Monica. This one wouldn’t go to a special fund, but is simply intended to discourage kids and others from consuming too much sugary soda, a leading cause of diabetes, tooth decay and obesity. “We have ignored this crisis too long,” Bloom said in introducing his newest levy, which wasn’t immediately specified, but might amount to 2 cents per fluid ounce, or 24 cents per 12-ounce can, or almost $3 per 12-can case. The noble causes and

good intentions go on almost ad nauseum, but they fly in the face of recent polls, which without exception show California voters believe they are overtaxed. If voters become truly fed up with having new levies piled on them, there could be significant results at the ballot box, as demonstrated in the Fullerton-based district of recalled state Sen. Josh Newman, who cast the vote many felt was decisive in passing the gas tax increase. The state tax burden is compounded by the Trump administration’s tax “reforms” passed through a Republican-controlled Congress in 2017, which have been fully felt for the first time this year, cutting deductions for items like property taxes and some home mortgage interest. Those impacts are felt more strongly in California than anywhere else. Only overconfidence and a sense they’ll never lose their jobs over tax increases, no matter how many or how high, can explain politicians continuing to try for new tax increases just as voters are paying more federal taxes and feeling overburdened. If there were serious competition for political survival in California, these levies would never be proposed. Which means that if Democrats are miscalculating the depth of their support and security, the spate of proposed new taxes could produce some startling political change next year.

Solana Beach voters Trio of Levin bills to help vets reenter civilian life reject senior facility

been some support services or additional classes made available to him after his retirement from the Marines. Still, Foster described his time transitioning into civilian life as a retired master sergeant aviation maintenance chief was easier than a 24-year-old corporal might go through. With the GI Bill, Foster was able to go back to school while receiving a monthly $2,000 check. One day, he noticed his monthly check was late. He found out it was because he was on break from school and wouldn’t get another one until classes resumed. Luckily he had retirement, benefits and other income to keep him afloat, but eventually it struck him — what if he were that 24-year-old corporal who depended on that check to make his car payment or rent? Since that realization, Foster has been helping other veterans as chairman of the North County Veterans Stand Down, an annual four-day event in Vista that helps homeless veterans from across San Diego County to receive needed services in a safe, drug-free environment. During their stay, homeless veterans and their families receive food, lodging, clothing and other services to help them both physically and mentally. The Stand Down also brings together multiple local veterans organizations that otherwise don’t com-

municate with each other to a one-stop-shop for homeless veterans. The House also recently passed two other bills introduced by Levin that support veterans. One is called the Veterans’ Education, Transition, and Opportunity Prioritization Plan Act, which would prioritize veterans’ employment, transition, housing and education benefits at Veteran Affairs. The third bill is called the Vet Center Eligibility Expansion Act, which would expand the eligibility to receive counseling from VA Vet Centers to members of the National Guard and Reserves or Coast Guard who served during emergency situations in the wake of a national emergency, major disaster, civil disorder or drug interdiction operation. Foster noted that the National Guard is a separate entity from the military complex that’s funded by the states rather than the federal government, which means they don’t have nearly the same amount of money. Still, many National Guard members are experiencing similar trauma that military combat veterans have gone through. “I was out there in Iraq three times and the National Guard was out there too,” Foster said. Levin introduced all three bills with Republican congress members, which he pointed out to demonstrate the bills’ bipartisan, widespread support.

Levin said he anticipates the bills will make it to President Donald Trump’s desk before the end of the year. The first-term congressman also recently introduced a bipartisan bill called the Housing for Women Veterans Act, which is meant to help end homelessness among women veterans and their families. The bill would re-authorize funding for the Supportive Services for Veteran Families grant program at $400 million for fiscal years 2020-2022, and require that at least $20 million go to organizations that have a focus on helping women veterans. According to the San Diego County Point-in-Time Count, there were approximately 1,312 homeless veterans counted in 2018. The 2019 numbers show that there was a total of 8,102 homeless counted in 2019, with 4,476 listed as unsheltered. About 10% of the unsheltered homeless in 2019 are veterans. Even Foster was homeless for a time, but not as a veteran — while he was active duty. In 1998 when Foster moved from Marine Corps Air Station El Toro to Camp Pendleton, there wasn’t enough housing to go around. His family stayed with other family members up north while he slept in the barracks, but eventually he was kicked out to make room for newcomers. After that, Foster lived in his car for six months. Foster explained that many veterans may shrug off homeless at first, reassuring themselves that they at least have a car and aren’t getting shot at while trying to sleep. “Marines especially but all veterans don’t like to ask for help,” Foster said. “We’re used to living in crappy conditions.” But as things get worse and worse, and homelessness lasts longer, Foster said it’s hard for those veterans to come back from that. “It’s all interrelated: mental health, homelessness, lack of affordable and available housing, trying to find good jobs, all of these things are directly linked,” Levin said. According to Levin, it’s going to take a village — or in this case, San Diego County’s civilians and military communities — to combat those issues.

continual decline to 2028, where we're projected to be at around 525 students,” she said. On the administrative front, Principal Garrett Corduan, who served as middle school principal will now hold the position of K-8 principal. The position of K-5 principal, held by Kim Pinkerton, will return to the classroom. Tripi also noted the plan of hiring on a K-8 assistant principal.

Despite the layoffs in the new school year, Tripi said that the priority of the board and all of the constituents is to maintain excellence while also implementing more fiscally responsible budget. “Our programs are intact. Kids will still have a very robust elective schedule, middle school enrichment, and all of the same enrichment classes that they had in elementary school. We still have a science specialist

to work with students,” she said. “We will still have a very small class size, 20:1 or under — some of our classes, even at the elementary level, are at 14 and 15 students.” Tripi said keeping class sizes small is a huge priority as well as is taking a closer look into their math and science curriculum. “We really want to focus our attention on just making our excellent programs even more excellent for next year,” Tripi said.

SOLANA BEACH — The official vote is in: a ballot measure meant to allow for a second senior care facility in Solana Beach received a final “no” stamp from voters. Measure B has been in the making for years, with developer RhodesMoore LLC aiming to bring a senior care facility with up to 99 beds to a lot off of Genevieve Street, just east of the I-5. A special election held in early May solicited voter input on the project’s specific plan overlay — a “yes” vote on the measure would have allowed for an increase in the 2.9-acre lot’s allowed density. The lot is currently zoned for one to two dwelling units per acre (“estate residential”) — and for now, will remain that way. The project drew criticism and condemnation from the surrounding Marine View Avenue neighborhood, a quiet and rural corner of the coastal city. Residents’ primary concern was that the facility would bring overwhelming traffic to the neighborhood. In a relatively close vote, 51.52% of participating Solana Beach voters marked “no” on their mail-in ballots. The final vote came out at 1,727 Solana Beach residents voting “no,” and 1,625 voting “yes.” The project’s developer, John DeWald, said the turnout of 36% of eligible voters participating was “far more than we expected.” The cost of the special election was incurred by

the developer, at a total of $125,000. DeWald said the election’s outcome is a representation of “why ballot box voting isn’t a good idea.” “It doesn’t allow a true analysis of the issue,” he said. “There were a lot of misperceptions and false information out there.” DeWald told The Coast News that the lot’s owners are gauging alternative uses. “Something will be built there,” he said. “... I think that’s the risk that the neighbors are willing to take, is that it could be high density housing.” Rosemary Linden, a member of the Marine View Homeowners Association, said residents voted to “preserve the current, sensible ER-2 zoning,” and if faced with another potential zoning change in the future? “We’re confident that we’d be able to mobilize against it even more quickly and effectively,” she said in an email to The Coast News. Under Proposition T, zoning changes in the city that alter or up the density usage of a lot are subject to a vote of the people. In the two months leading up to the election, Linden and other neighbors “spent countless hours” delivering “No on Measure B” flyers in Solana Beach, communicating with area residents, building an informational website and holding up signs at freeway entrances in order to oppose the project. Linden called the outcome a “win for Solana Beach residents and a win for grassroots activism.”

“In our district, we were closer to 92% of the budget was personnel,” she said. Tripi also noted they had the same amount of personnel when the district had a student enrollment from 700 to 831 back in the early 2000s. Currently, the district has 600 students. “There were definitely places where we could make some cuts. After the teacher

At the time of her birth, Saybie — at 245 grams — weighed as much as a large apple or a child’s juice box. She also weighed seven grams less than the previous infant to be deemed the smallest surviving baby, who was born in Germany in 2015, according to the Tiniest Baby Registry at the University of Iowa. — City News Service positions were cut, we also looked at being more efficient in the offices and eliminating a few positions in our classified staff and administrators — so we did that as well,” she said. While there was a significant decline in second and third grade enrollment, Tripi said there was a decline overall in the district. Tripi pointed out how there was a demographic study done in the fall and one thing assessed was

OCEANSIDE — Matt Foster remembers how it felt to lose the military’s invisible arm of support when he retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. After years spent as a Marine, he wasn’t fully prepared for his transition into civilian life. Foster, now a commander of VFW Post 1513 in Escondido, took a handful of Career Transition Assistance Plan classes and was sent home with a “stack” of paperwork amongst other things the military piled on before he left. “It’s how the military does stuff,” Foster said. “They throw everything at you, say ‘here you go, digest this…’ but you’re not in that mode. I wasn’t in that mode.” Foster is now in the business of helping other veterans get the resources they need, and he is quite pleased about the House of Representatives passing three bills proposed by Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) that aim to help veterans. Levin and several members of local veterans organizations, including Foster, gathered during a May 28 press conference at North Coastal Mental Health Center in Oceanside to call on the Senate to support his legislation. One of those bills is called the Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer William “Bill” Mulder (Ret.) Transition Improvement Act. According to Foster, transitioning into civilian life is often challenging for veterans, especially when the system they’ve lived with for years suddenly disappears. “You’re in an institution that literally takes and gives everything, and it’s all invisible to you,” Foster said. “Administration will say you need to go to a dentist and you don’t even think about it, you just show up and do what you’re told.” Levin introduced the bill with Rep. Jodey Arrington, a Republican representative from Texas who was best friends with Bill Mulder, the veteran whose name is on the bill. Mulder died by suicide at the age of 46. As suggested by the title, the bill aims to improve the Transition Assistance Program for service members returning to civilian life. Foster said it would have been nice if there had whether enrollment numbers were anticipated to increase since that would help guide what the district could keep in place. But that wasn't the case. An enrollment projection study, conducted by Cooperative Strategies, showed a consistent decline which mirrored a decrease in San Diego County as a whole, not just in Rancho Santa Fe. “We had 600 students this year, we're expecting 587 next year, and it's a

I

t was a 620-year-old thumb-under-glass that sent lifelong Catholic and Pasadena resident Mary Lea Carroll on her quest to understand more fully the lives of four “lady saints,” two Virgins and an iconic statue attributed with miraculous powers. Twenty years ago, Carroll wandered into the 12th-century Basilica of San Domenico in Siena, Italy, and saw what she describes as “a stub of charcoal sporting a finger- Carroll nail.” It was a thumb — now a relic — that once belonged to St. Catherine of Siena. “Who are you?” Carroll wondered at the time, and “Hello — why hasn’t your thumb turned to dust?” (A quick pause here for an explanation of relics, which, in the Catholic world, are either bodily parts, clothing or something used extensively by holy persons

(saints) or Jesus. Centuries ago, cities competed for the best relics, which were magnets for pilgrims and their spending power. Relics are still revered by many today.) Carroll’s encounter with the thumb (St. Catherine’s head is in the same church) eventually sent the author in pursuit of more information. “This path started by accident when I saw the relic of St. Catherine,” Carroll explained in a phone call from her Pasadena home. “I wanted to know about the woman whose thumb is still here after 600 years. I couldn’t help but be amazed by what I learned. Then it occurred to me that a lot of places that I travel may have amazing women attached.” Carroll has always loved to travel. “I used to be a trip escort, then had a family, so that clipped my wings for a couple of decades,” she said. Once her three daughters were grown, “the desire to travel came back.” In researching various saints, however, Carroll

found that “everything was very dated, written a long time ago or very pious. It didn’t apply to women of today. I felt that I could write more vibrantly about them.” A n d that she did in “Saint Eve r y whe re : Travels in Search of the Lady S a i nt s” (Prospect Park Books). Included are the biographies and accompl ish ments St. Catherine of Siena; St. Theresa of Avila, Spain; and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and St. Frances Xavier Cabrini of New York City. Carroll also wrote about her journeys to Medjugorje, Bosnia, where she learned about the Virgin known as Our Lady of Peace, and to Mexico City, where Our Lady of Guadalupe is revered. One visit in 2009 to Prague brought an encounter with “well, not a saint but a statue” — the famous Infant of Prague. The statue is a 16th-century doll in the likeness of the Baby

Jesus that is ensconced in a gloomy, ancient church in the capital of the Czech Republic. The Infant, like the saints and the Virgin, is credited with miracles and spiritual inspiration of Catholics worldwide. When Carroll entered the church, she writes, her state of anxiety was high. She deeply felt the lack of physical and mental health and thought, “Shoot, why not give all of (my anxieties) to Him right now?” “(I) sat on that bench and prayed as hard as I could,” she writes. Result? “The instant I completed the prayer, a relief … came over me. It was small but real. The crazy random anxiety went away.” Carroll’s favorite saint? Frances Xavier Cabrini, whom she “met” while living in New York City. An Italian immigrant, Cabrini was the first naturalized American citizen to be named a saint. She ministered to poor Italian immigrants in crowded Manhattan at the end she created 67 institutions — orphanages, schools, hospitals and clinics. “The reports of her personality were appealing to me,” Carroll said. “She reminds me of my sister who held yard sales.

Del Mar officials grapple with looming housing crisis By Lexy Brodt

DEL MAR — As housing mandates from the state trickle down to the local level, small coastal cities like Del Mar are struggling to come to terms with the state’s looming housing crisis. The state has apportioned 171,685 housing units to San Diego County based on regional housing needs, and the San Diego Association of Governments is currently figuring out how to distribute those units among the county’s 19 jurisdictions — a process called the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA). Del Mar City Planner Kathleen Garcia estimated at a May 20 council meeting that Del Mar could be allocated anywhere between 160 to 225 units for the next eight-year housing element cycle, which will start in 2021. The units will be divided among four income categories: very low, low, moderate and above moderate income. As the smallest city in the county, Del Mar is beginning to brace itself for the real numbers. Del Mar has a population of about

ic much like ‘Lily and the Octopus,’” he said. “I had remembered that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a career as a book editor. I didn’t know a lot of details at the time, but I sort of thought well if she became the book’s editor, then that would make it a much bigger deal than the young writer had ever intended.” The idea fueled Rowley to begin researching this period in Kennedy Onassis’ life. “She (Kennedy Onassis) had a remarkable career — this third act that we don’t really think about,” he said. According to Rowley, Kennedy Onassis worked for 15 years as a book editor in New York. She worked for two years at Viking Press and then at Doubleday for the bulk of her career where she edited over 100 titles. “She had a really prolific career as an editor, and it’s not really amongst the first five things that we think about when we remember her — I actually think it’s the most interesting time in her life,” he said. “She had sublimated much of her own desires to her two marriages to the men in her life. And this was a time where she was putting herself first — it’s hard to speak for someone else — but a lot of people think that this was the happiest time in her life, and it was very fascinating to research.” Rowley said he read a number of the books that Kennedy Onassis was edit-

4,100 in an approximately 2-square-mile area, and in the words of several city council members, is essentially “built-out.” “We’ve already lost,” said Mayor Dave Druker, as council members discussed how to confront the ever-growing numbers mandated by the state. Though not yet finalized, the methodology developed by SANDAG will distribute those units per city based on nearby transit opportunities, the number of jobs in the city and equity. The “equity” standard aims to spread affordable units — or low and very low income units — throughout the county, regardless of any city’s existing demographic. “That’s wonderful if you started out with a city as a blank slate,” said Druker in regard to the equity goal. “We are not a blank slate.” When it comes to the upcoming housing element cycle, Del Mar would not be given any units based on transit — at the moment, the most frequent transit offering Del Mar has is a bus running at half-hour intervals, and residents are not within walking distance of ing at the time that his novel, “The Editor,” took place in 1992. He explained that he forensically recreated her desk with the manuscripts which were it, including what other topics she was interested in at the time, as well as what other ideas may have been at the forefront of her mind. “On top of that, I had a very supportive publisher who helped put me in touch with a lot of people who worked with her (Kennedy Onassis),” he said. The people that Rowley spoke with were either retired from publishing or holding senior positions. “They were all very generous with their memories of her,” he said. For Rowley, it was great fun trying to bring Kennedy Onassis’ life working in publishing into a character in his novel. “In ‘The Editor,’ you have a young man caught between this sort of flawed image of his mother and this sort of idealized aspirational picture of American motherhood that Jackie represented for a generation,” he said. Rowley said he worked to give Kennedy Onassis a real narrative purpose for the story, and by the end of the book, readers will discover the depth of her character. A seasoned screenwriter, Rowley passed on adapting “Lily and the Octopus” into a screenplay but is serving as the producer. As for “The Editor,” Rowley decided to adapt the manuscript into a screenplay. To learn more about Rowley, visit https://www. stevenrowley.com.

rail or rapid transit. “That’s the end of the good news,” said Garcia. However, Del Mar does have jobs — and by SANDAG’s count, the sum of jobs that will be used to determine Del Mar’s allocation is 4,484. The city has a more modest estimate under its belt — in the realm of 2,000. Garcia assumes based on the job categories outlined by SANDAG that the elevated numbers take into account both part-time and full-time jobs. And a large portion of the area’s part-time jobs

come from the Del Mar Fairgrounds, which employs predominantly part-time workers. With that in mind, council members are looking to the state-owned property for solutions to the city’s lack of housing stock -— though at this point the dialogue is preliminary. The fairgrounds takes up about a third of the land in Del Mar. “That’s our ace in the pocket,” Councilwoman Terry Gaasterland said. “That’s our only way we’re going to solve this.” Del Mar has struggled

for years with how to comply with affordable housing mandates, particularly as a city so tied to its quaint village feel (single-family homes, height restrictions), and where the cost of land is prohibitive to developers. “It seems like quite the uphill battle,” Garcia told The Coast News. The city embarked on a study in 2016 to determine how it might be able to accomplish the 22 affordable housing units it was allocated by the state during its current housing cycle. Ten of those units were allocated as a penalty for not fulfilling its affordable units during the fourth housing element cycle. The study — called “22 in 5” — looked at various options, such as “unlocking land” owned by the city for redevelopment, securing units through development projects, and partnering with the 22nd District Agricultural Association to create affordable housing on the fairgrounds property. Del Mar currently has zero units deemed “affordable,” though the city will soon have three: one accessory dwelling unit and two affordable units through the

voter-approved 941 Camino Del Mar project. The city is in the process of completing its fifth housing element — taking steps toward affordable housing through tasks such as studying the potential rezoning of certain cityowned parcels in order to accommodate housing. The city was allocated 61 units during the current housing element cycle, across all income categories. The city has produced 33 of those units since the housing element was established in 2013, with all but one falling into the “above moderate” income category. SANDAG’s RHNA subcommittee has not yet finalized its methodology for the upcoming cycle — Garcia said the final numbers should come in mid-June, after which SANDAG’s board of directors will adopt the RHNA plan. After that process has been finalized, Del Mar will have until April 2021 to develop its next housing element and get it certified. Del Mar is not alone in its struggle to meet regional housing needs — only 31% of housing allocated to San Diego in this cycle has been implemented.

Synagogue shooting suspect granted delay in state court REGION — A 19-yearold nursing student accused of opening fire at a Poway synagogue, killing one congregant and injuring several others, and setting an arson fire at an Escondido mosque, appeared May 30 before a San Diego Superior Court judge, who granted a defense request to reschedule his preliminary hearing from early July until mid-August. John T. Earnest of Rancho Penasquitos is being prosecuted in federal and state court in separate but simultaneous cases stemming from the April

27 shooting rampage at Chabad of Poway and the March 24 arson blaze at the Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque, also known as the Islamic Center of Escondido. He faces a possible death sentence in both cases if convicted. Neither office has made a decision regarding whether to pursue the death penalty. Earnest appeared before Judge Lorna Alksne in the state case, in which he’s charged with murder, attempted murder and arson. Defense attorney John O’Connell argued successfully to have Earnest’s

July 8 preliminary hearing — which will determine whether there's enoug evidence to proceed to trial — rescheduled to Aug. 19. O’Connell said he needed extra time to review evidence that includes 705 pages of various material, surveillance video that prosecutors say shows the entire shooting, recorded interviews with witnesses, firearm analysis, and evidence seized from Earnest’s computer. Earnest was also arraigned in federal court May 28 on a 113-count grand jury indictment. Included are 54

hate crime counts and 54 obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs counts, all of which apply to congregants who were inside the synagogue during the shooting rampage, U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer said. Of that number, 12 are children, he said. Authorities said Earnest, who lived with his parents and was studying nursing at Cal State San Marcos, confessed to the shooting and the arson fire in an online manifesto posted prior to the synagogue shooting.

TREES

have faced real challenges. While this past winter had a substantial amount of rain, Beckman said it had been an anomaly to be this wet. “There is no forecast that it will continue to be this wet — it’s actually forecast by many that it will return to an extended drought state,” he said. “So the drought, and then the resultant drought has had a major impact, and a lot of trees are drought stressed — and, along with climate change, it’s become somewhat warmer out here on average and the rainfall has been diminished — and diseases and pests have taken down some of these drought-stressed trees.” One of those pests is the red gum lerp psyllid, which found its way to Rancho Santa Fe. “So, we have an estimated 10,000 dead trees and another 30,000 plus (trees) identified as being in poor health, which is to say effectively they are dying,” he said. “We have a total of 40,000-plus trees that are in the category of dead and dying, and they need to

be removed at an appropriate time, especially when they are dead, to reduce the impact of a fire. If there is a fire, and one day there will be, you don’t want a bunch of dead trees standing in the air just spreading the fire more rapidly. It's dry tinder standing in the air, and the Fire District and the Association don’t have the authority to remove those trees if they are on private property.” And removing those trees is only one part of the solution — those trees need

to be replaced the right indigenous trees. Beckman said this is why the community needs to be involved. Residents wanting a 30-minute landscape consultation or more information on being part of the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Forest Health and Preservation Committee can call the Association at (858) 756-1174. Those wanting inspection for vegetation management can contact the RSF Fire Protection District at (858) 756-5971.

San Diego provided recommended practices.” He said the study took about a year and a half to complete. Beckman went on to say how the committee was very engaged and instrumental in the study process and focusing on the conclusions. Beckman said with the estimated 95% of the forest being on private property, the Association and Rancho Santa Fe Fire District has limited control or authority over the removal of distressed and dying trees. “With that realization, we need to make sure that the community is well informed about the forest and making sure the right things are done,” he said. “The community’s knowledge and engagement in the forest health aspects of our community is important because it can’t be done by someone else.” Beckman said while the community forest is healthy overall, there are subcategory areas that

Encinitas joins nationwide effort Heart-patient pup ready for adoption with gun violence proclamation By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Over the past several years, the Encinitas City Council has waded into the national conversation about gun violence prevention, but support for gun safety proclamations, resolutions or the like have rarely been unanimous. Mayor Catherine Blakespear on May 22 issued a proclamation declaring June 7 as National Gun Violence Awareness Day, as

politically charged. The following year, the proclamation received the full support of the council with little fanfare. Last year, the Public Safety and Traffic Commission split on a gun-violence awareness resolution proffered up by gun-safety advocate Steve Bartram in the wake of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, ultimately declining to recommend it to the City Council.

‘WEAR ORANGE’ campaign hopes to raise awareness to gun violence prevention across the country. Encinitas recently issued a proclamation declaring June 7 National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Courtesy photo

part of a nationwide effort to call attention to gun-violence prevention held on the first Friday in June the past five years. Support for the proclamation was unanimous from the dais. “I think there’s a growing recognition that gun violence is an epidemic,” Blakespear said. “And that it is preventable and we need to do more as a society.” “Wear Orange on National Gun Violence Awareness Day” stemmed from the 2013 shooting death of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old girl who was killed just a week after attending and performing at President Barack Obama’s second presidential inauguration. Pendleton’s killer was sentenced to 86 years in prison earlier this year. Encinitas’ history with passage of anything related to gun violence awareness has been controversial. In 2016, former Mayor Kristin Gaspar declined to issue a similar proclamation, saying that it was

The council then considered the same resolution in March and voted 4-1 to support it, but not before several gun ownership activists and former Councilman Mark Muir criticized the resolution as too extreme. This year, Blakespear issued the proclamation with members of the local chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, all clad in orange, the color the group asks the public to wear on June 7. Orange was the color chosen by Hadiya’s classmates to honor her and

bring awareness to gun violence because it is the color that hunters wear to announce themselves to other hunters while in the woods. “Orange is a color that symbolizes the value of human life,” Blakespear said in her proclamation. Citing federal crime statistics, the proclamation noted that every day 100 people in America are killed in an incident involving a firearm, totaling 13,000 gun deaths annually. Americans, according to the proclamation, are 25 times more likely to be killed by guns than an any other high-income nation. The proclamation did not call for a ban of gun ownership, rather it encourages responsible gun ownership and for governments to do more to keep guns out of the hands of people with “dangerous histories.” Nancy Hardwick, president of the local Moms Demand Action chapter, thanked the council and Blakespear for the proclamation. Hardwick said that chapters of the organization met with legislators in Sacramento recently to lobby for more funds for the California Violence Prevention and Intervention Grant program, which awards competitive grants for the purpose of violence intervention and prevention. Hardwick said the program has successfully reduced shootings and retaliatory gun violence in communities statewide. Gov. Gavin Newsom recently announced support of tripling the funding pool for the program from $9 million to $27 million.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Last month, San Diego residents fell in love with a Helen Woodward Animal Center sweetheart who had been prepping for an innovative and intricate surgery to repair a heart murmur. Cowboy, the orphan puppy who has stolen the heart of everyone he meets, is recovering and almost ready to ride off into the sunset with his new forever family. The little survivor will be an honorary guest at the June 9 Center Spring Fling Gala, and Helen Woodward Animal Center will begin taking applications for Cowboy’s adoption that day. Orphan pup Cowboy was one of a litter who, along with their mother, arrived at Helen Woodward Animal in mid-October last year. The family of terrier-blends were healthy and ready for adoption by late fall, except for Cowboy whose heart had such an irregular rhythm that the vet techs could feel a distinct and loud rumble simply by placing their hands upon his tiny chest. Center veterinarians diagnosed Cowboy with a rare and high grade heart murmur that threatened to shorten his life. They prescribed Cowboy a medication called Atenolol to help take pressure off his heart and placed the puppy in the loving care of one of Helen Woodward Animal Center’s most dedicated

fosters, then scheduled him for a complex surgery to be performed by expert veterinary cardiologists at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Center extension. On May 7, Cowboy underwent the procedure that involved placing a deflated balloon into his heart valve and inflating it to open up the stricture and ease the flow of blood, to lower the pressure in his heart. The balloon used in Cowboy’s procedure had to be specially made for a dog of his small size. Dr. Joao Orvalho performed the surgery. “Cowboy’s valve was thicker and harder than

expected, causing a few challenges,” said Dr. Orvalho, “but overall the surgery went very well and Cowboy’s heart valve is expanding well and decreasing the stricture.” The heartthrob of a pup is scheduled for a follow-up with Dr. Orvalho in three months. Although he will need to stay on Atenolol for the rest of his life, he is expected to live out a happy and healthy life.

D

on’t let “June Gloom” get you down — soon, it will be patio weather. Frankly, most of the year in this area is patio weather if you are willing to wear a light sweater with your flip-flops. In celebration of impending summer, here’s my round up of the best brewery patios in North County. A lot of breweries and tasting rooms have large roll-up windows that let in light and air, but that’s not going to cut it for this list. And while I appreciate the effort when a brewery squeezes a patio onto a sidewalk out front, that’s not the sort of thing this list is about, either. I’m talking a genuine, real-deal patio: comfortable seating, some cover from the sun, preferably with a nice view. By this standard, The

In contrast, one the largest — and certainly one of the best — outdoor brewery spaces is

in Cardiff (2007 San Elijo Avenue) is an “edge case,” as they say. It has only six stools in a tiny space barely outside the roll-up window, tight against a narrow beer rail that looks out onto the courtyard of a small retail center near San Elijo State Beach. Even though the patio is so small that it has no tables, it is still a good spot to enjoy an afternoon beer, if you are lucky enough to get a seat.

From the walk through the leafy tunnel that leads to the entrance, to the koi ponds on the patio, to the paths through tall trees, the whole place is relaxing and gorgeous. And you can carry your beer with you as you explore. Tiny Escondido Brewing Company (649 Rock Springs Rd B, Escondido) has no indoor seating at all, so it was wise of them to make their outdoor area so lovely.

The strings of white lights hanging from the wooden trellises create a magical scene at dusk. Like many patios, they have yard games. They are only open on Fridays and Saturdays: check their website to be sure they are open before you head that way. Unfortunately, the surrounding area is not much to look at (a wrecking yard and three tire stores are in the immediate area), so going after dark improves the ambience. The Stone Brewing Tap Room in Oceanside (310 N Tremont Street), though considerably smaller than the Escondido location, also makes for a pretty and pleasant outdoor experience, with shady trees, Adirondack chairs, and tables with umbrellas. There’s even a fire pit for cool eve-

nings.

Bagby Beer Co. (601 South Coast Highway, Oceanside) often makes lists like this one, as it did in SD City Beat’s recent Brews of Summer piece. Bagby is always a good choice — for beer, food, service, atmosphere, proximity to the beach/pier, and for its several distinct outdoor areas, each one better than the last. The rooftop deck is open only during the busiest times, but the three other outdoor areas downstairs are excellent, too. You can tell the “back porch” at Booze Brothers Brewing Co. (2545 Progress St Suite D, Vista) was originally just a concrete slab on the back of a commercial building, but they have TURN TO CRAFT BEER ON 13

casual chic gathering of guests made themselves comfortable at the Seven Degrees special event center in Laguna Beach recently, to toast the success of WALT Wines of Napa Valley and Sonoma. It was a “coming out” party of sorts and for two purposes: seven new Pinot Noirs with the WALT label were nicely spaced for each guest to sample on several large party tables with an explanation of the appellation (where the wine grapes came from), plus a delightful food pairing of each wine lay beside the wines. Beautifully done! A book written by Kathryn Walt Hall and Craig Hall had made it to the Best Seller List of the New York Times. It’s the fascinating story of a modern day winery that built its success in this century, culminating in a 100-point score from the world’s leading wine critic, Robert Parker. It was in fact “A Perfect Score” for the Hall 2010 “Excellenz” Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested only 15 years after the Halls launched their winery in Rutherford, Napa Valley. In 2012, under General Manager Jeff Zappelli, WALT Wines, Kathryn’s maiden name, was launched with a separate winery in Sonoma. The key to WALT’s success over other Pinots is that it offers a bottle from each of the major Pinot growing ar-

All PaintCare sites accept up to 5 gallons per visit (some take more). Please call ahead to confirm business hours and ask if they can accept the type and amount of paint you would like to recycle. Sites do not accept: aerosols (spray paint) or leaking, unlabeled and empty containers.

eas: The Willamette Valley in Oregon and California’s Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Rita Hills, with a total of seven different vineyards. “It’s literally 1,000 miles of Pinot,” declared Kathryn Walt Hall. “We craft WALT wines to naturally and honestly express the character of each vineyard. We source from the most prestigious vineyards along the Pacific Coast. Imagine tasting seven different expressions of this beautiful varietal.” It’s an impressive lineup of Pinot Noir. Over on the Hall side of this dynamic duo of rich red wines, Hall has been dedicated to showcasing fine reds composed of classic Bordeaux French varietals. Their St. Helena property has many expressive art pieces, like the 35-foot-long chrome “Bunny Foo Foo” stainless steel sculpture seemingly jumping over the vineyard. In the late 1990s Kathryn Walt Hall was the U.S. Ambassador to Austria. That gave her broad exposure to the diplomatic circles where European culture thrived. She applied her love of the quality of life, to the art and business of wine. Locally in San Diego, the WineSellar & Brasserie unveiled WALT Pinot Noirs along with a line of Zinfandels called BACA wines, from the Napa Valley Howell Mountain district 2017 vintage ($50). A core of strawberry, blackberry and raspberry meets the palate at the front, lavished with aromas of wild sage, sweet pine and peppercorn. Clearly Hall, WALT and now BACA have led the charge for Kathryn and Craig Hall, and the best is yet to come for this game-changing winery group. The book, “A Perfect Score,” is an easy read to familiarize yourself with the art, soul and business of a 21st century winery. Look for hallwines.com and waltwines.com for more information.

Belching Beaver’s Tavern and Grill (302 E. Broad-

It is much larger than you would expect, with a full bar set up, rail seating on one side, low chairs arranged as if around a campfire, and the whole surrounded by trees and tall fences. It feels like a world apart, and it is a relaxing place to spend a few hours. Helia Brewing Company

(1250 Keystone Way, Vista) has a small and rustic outdoor area. They needed to add another picnic table or two last time I was there, but the patio’s position on a slight rise means that looking over the road in an industrial park doesn’t feel too bad at all. Plus, the rest of the place is hip and wonderfully designed.

Carlsbad Brewing Company, as I pointed out in my

column last week, has two small patios on a hill overlooking the McClellan-Palomar Airport with the ocean in the (extreme) distance, which makes it a great spot for plane-spotting and sunset-gazing. Finally, Viewpoint Brewing (2201 San Dieguito Drive, Del Mar). Parking is not always easy (especially during the County Fair), but the beer is solid, the food is good, and sitting at one of the long communal tables with a view of the lagoon is delightful. Unlike some other brewery locations, this one is a great date spot.

received notice recently on the grand reopening celebration of Baker & Olive in Encinitas happening May 29 and it served as a timely reminder that I needed to stock up on some of their amazing products. They actually moved just across the parking lot from their former location but it’s much easier to access and a larger space to showcase their wide variety of gourmet delights. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this oneof-a-kind store here is a quick refresher. They are a locally owned, chef-inspired specialty shop and tasting pantry with stores in Encinitas, Del Mar, San Diego and Corona del Mar. They are passionate about good food and exceptional customer service and are inspired by people with a common connection. Their culinary team has created a remarkable storefront with artisan cheeses and charcuterie, the finest collection of world-class aged balsamic vinegars, ultra premium freshest harvest olive oils from around the world, boutique wines, salts and seasonings, and an array of local handcrafted food ingredients. As like any store of that nature, they are constantly evolving, collaborating with regional chefs then sharing that knowledge with their customers. They describe it best as an “old world meets new world, west coast inspired marketplace.� I’ll start with their olive oils as every foodie who values quality ingredients in their cooking should really have a few bottles from Baker & Olive on hand at all times. Besides their traditional, extra vir-

gin olive oil “EVOO� as its referred to, they have a wide variety of infused oils and all of them are available to taste. Some of those fabulous infused flavors include basil, blood orange, butter, cilantro and roasted onion, Eureka lemon, garlic, herbs de Provence, Persian lime, Tuscan herb, black truffle and roasted sesame just to name a few. The culinary applications of these are endless and the staff at Baker & Olive will gladly share their extensive knowledge on their different uses. In addition to the spectacular selection of olive oils, their aged balsamic vinegars are also worth the trip. The flavor varieties in both the dark and white are all over the map and include fig, blackberry, cinnamon pear, tangerine, black currant, dark chocolate, Vermont maple, strawberry, lavender, and red apple and that’s just on the dark side of things. All these options could be

Breakfast & Lunch at the Beach Happy Hour Sunset / Prix-Fixe

a bit overwhelming but again, that’s where the knowledgeable staff comes in. That and the ability to taste just about everything they offer before you buy it. And while the culinary applications are endless, you will find it difficult to buy pre-mixed salad dressing again if you have a few varieties of their olive oil and balsamic vinegar on your countertop. And yes, keep these out and visible at all times because not only are the bottles quite attractive, their visibility will ensure that they get put to use.

Almost every product offered at Baker & Olive complements one another and could be used either as a simple standalone enhancement to a snack or as an essential ingredient to a gourmet feast. They have a wide variety of sea salts ranging from Hawaiian Alaea to French Sel Gris to Cyprus Flake. The highest quality spices and rubs are also available to enhance your cooking. It really is amazing how high quality ingredients can elevate your cooking. And of course what meal would be complete without a fresh baguette and some wonderful cheese. We all know Prager Brothers breads by now and if you don’t please make it a point to seek them out. They come in fresh at Baker & Olive and there is a cheese counter with a nice selection of options that you can purchase by the pound. Other local vendors include Fit Chick Granola, Flavor Chef Broth and Mighty Booch Kombucha. They are all about education at Baker & Olive and chef Maria Crow hosts regular classes and brings in area chefs to do the demonstrations. Culinary authors also stop by for book signings so it’s worth keeping up on their Facebook and Instagram pages or sign up for their eNewsletter to be kept up to date on these fun and educational events. You can find links to all their social media at www.bakerandolive.com and please note their new address at 215 S. El Camino Real, Encinitas.

How we act and what we say before, during, and after funerals can help ease the family’s grief or add to it. What do you say to someone who has just lost a loved one and how do you support them? Whether you call, send a card or flowers, or visit, the important thing is to make a gesture that lets the family know you are thinking of them and share their sorrow. While times are changing, and proper funeral etiquette is evolving, texts, emails, and tweets are still too informal for expressing sympathy. Whether you express your sympathy via a visit, call or card, your choice of words is important. Let the family know how much you will miss the deceased, how dear s/he was, how s/he made the world a better place, or what an inspiration s/he was to you. Sharing a fond memory will help the grieving family focus on happier times. Learn more at www.allenbrothersmortuary.com/funeral-etiquette

Fun, follies at the fair small talk jean gillette Jean Gillette hopes you will enjoy one of her earlier columns, in a sympathetic salute to all young moms today.

I

feel rather like a sheep dog tonight, but a happy sheep dog. I took the kids to the county fair today and we closed down the place. I spent most of the time herding my two wide-eyed youngsters as they tried to see and touch everything. I arrived at the fairgrounds expecting to spend perhaps two hours and $20. I figured the kids would poop out before we hit the time limit or the bottom of my wallet. Four hours later, I was in line at the ATM machine with the rest of the silly adults who’d thought like I did. My only regret was, on an adult level, the enormous cost of everything, but somehow it was still worth it. (Please don’t tell the vendors I said so, or next year we will have to hock the car.) Without any coaching, it seems that my children will follow splendidly in our family footsteps regarding giddy appreciation of our county fair. We are well-educated, practical, fairly responsible people the balance of the year, but when the gates to the fair swing open, our eyes glaze over, and we being to grin foolishly. We roll in on opening day, ready to listen to every silver-tongued huckster, sign up for every free giveaway, eat deep-fried, sugar-coated everything and to ooh and aah over the fuzzy rabbits, the milking machines and the striped pigs all over again. We throw caution to the wind, so far as our budget will allow, CROP and just .93 wallow in the gem and mineral show, the ani.93 mal barns, 4.17 the flower shows 4.28

and all the zillion little exhibits in between. It really is true that after a brisk walk around the fair, certain foods one would never order in a normal restaurant suddenly smell and taste like heaven. This year, for me, it was chili fries. To my amazement, I ate much of it surrounded by the smells of the barnyard. My kids sampled pizza and cheese on a stick, then munched their weight in cotton candy. My primary gastronomic rule of thumb is never order anything I can make at home. Since I do not possess a deep-fat fryer, this leaves a pretty wide menu. Our only mishap this year was selecting a midway ride for the kids that looked like a very tame roller-coaster ride. What we didn’t realize was that the thing went 100 miles an hour and then went backward. I felt like I had committed child abuse. My children were already very nervous about the midway (which seems normal to me, since I get queasy going downstairs) but to add to the silliness, my son developed an unshakable terror of sheep. We made the mistake of wandering into the sheep pens while some of them were cinched up being shorn. They were bleating loudly at the indignation of it all. This same child who begs to watch Batman, X-Men and Ninja Turtles was suddenly scared silly of sheep. Nothing, and I mean nothing, would coax him into those sheep barns after that. I’m wondering how our next haircut will go. It had saddened me a bit over the years that the once-ambrosial taste of cotton candy, corn dogs and kettle corn had begun to fade for me. I loved watching my children step into the gap … even if I did have to miss seeing the sheep. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer and fair visitor since she was 5.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things that usually come easily and quickly for the Aries Lamb might need more of your time and attention during the next several days. Try to be patient as you work things out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sensible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, you’ll soon sort things out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new look for your surroundings is fun. Expect to hear mostly positive comments on your efforts, as well as some well-intended suggestions you might want to note. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe you’d rather do anything else than what you’re “stuck with” right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relationship might never heal unless you’re willing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might even impact a personal decision you’ve been putting off.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a project that requires both skill and accountability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beckons by week’s end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options carefully before making a decision. A trusted colleague offers good advice. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While much of your time is involved with business matters, funtime opportunities open up by week’s end. Enjoy yourself, but be careful that you don’t overspend. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A “revelation” opens your eyes to what is really going on in the workplace. What you learn could make a difference in your career path. Continue to be alert for more news. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Not wanting to make waves might be the safest way to deal with a difficult situation. But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assessments with others. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of talking to people that makes them want to listen. You could find a successful career in politics. © 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

Local artist’s works celebrate coastal vibe By Lucia Viti

ENCINITAS — Artist Laura Cunningham is a lifelong Southern Californian, “nurtured by the ocean’s beauty.” She communicates her love of the water’s wonder through her fine art — colorful, layered and textured work — while working as a successful graphic designer because she enjoys it. The busy artist said while being a single mom is her most important mission, she really enjoys her job as a graphic designer and loves the process of being a fine artist. “My days are busy and fulfilling,” she said. “I’m constantly moving. I’m constantly catching up. But I’ve learned how to be disciplined. And I’ve learned how to structure time – which is sometimes tough LAURA CUNNINGHAM’S Coastal Art combines photography for a creative person.” and graphic design to capture the ocean in a unique style.

Arts from Cal State Long Beach and a Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from The Academy of Arts in San Francisco, the talent studied woodworking, printmaking, oil painting, photography, illustration and design; disciplines that have become facets of her handiwork as a fine artist. Using photographs of the California coast, the Encinitas resident defines her compositional pieces as “mixed media.” Contemporary and vintage photographs are layered by a myriad of graphic designs and textural elements through a process that includes sewing, painting and wood work. While every artistic landscape begins with a photograph, Cunningham doesn’t consider herself a photographer. “Photography’s my starting point, but I don’t interpret or use pictures as straight photographs,” she said. “I’m a multi-disciplined artist who layers and garnishes photographs with elements of mixed media.” Nautical maps, additional photographs, papers, patterns, hand-stitching, collaged wood, canvases sewn together and painted yardsticks used as framing are among the additional mixed media elements. Cunningham tags inspirational quotes on each finished piece to “put it all together.” “My pieces become a harmony of all of the elements,” she said. Colorful coastal landscapes showcase ocean breezes, salt-water sprays and “most purposefully, a sense of peace and sereni-

ty.”

Her work is completed in a private, “lively” home studio filled with high-tech equipment the likes of a format printer, sewing machine and power tools. Basic paints, brushes and a “plethora of canvas” also fill the room. Cunningham admits that her artistic muse revolves around her love of the coastal environment. Even her wave-y, C-shaped logo, “for Cunningham” tips up as a paintbrush to represent "my roots of growing up with a love for the ocean and for creating art.” “I know where I am on the planet by living on the coast,” she said. “I just have that connection. I’m forever inspired by everything ocean.” Her graphic work includes designer T-shirt graphics, catalogues, brochures, posters, logos, invitations and business cards. Cunningham welcomes working with clients to design home and office artwork and collaborating with interior designers and art consultants. The artist will showcase her art at the upcoming San Diego Festival of the Arts held at San Diego’s Waterfront Park, June 8-9. The annual event, now in its 33rd year, will exhibit more than 200 domestic and global artisans. Work includes paintings, sculptures, photography, jewelry, ceramics, wood and glass. The San Diego Bayside event will also host a juried competition, a silent auction, a wine and beer garden, live music, and cuisine from the area’s “finest eateries.” Spearheaded by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation, a 501 (c)3 that raises funds to support adaptive sports and recreational programs for San Diegans with disabilities, the festival has raised more than $2.5 million since its inception in 1987. “The San Diego Festival of the Arts raises money for programs that improve the lives of San Diego children, adults and wounded warriors through adaptive sports, recreational and cultural programs,” said Don Ludwig, event chairman. “Artists, a gorgeous setting, entertainment, food and drink create an ideal outing for all San Diegans while raising funds for valuable community-based activities benefitting San Diegans with disabilities.” Cunningham’s work can also be found in Form and Function on Cedros in Solana Beach and Bliss 101 on Coast Highway in Encinitas. The 2019 San Diego Festival of the Arts is June 8-9, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the County Administration Center Waterfront Park, 1600 Pacific Hwy, San Diego.

Naked man dancing on freeway sign taken safely into custody By Jordan P. Ingram

OCEANSIDE — A naked man dancing on a freeway sign catwalk Monday afternoon near Oceanside was taken into custody and placed into a county mental health facility, authorities said. No injuries were reported during the event and the man's name has not been released.

At approximately 3:26 p.m., authorities responded to several calls of a nude male who had accessed a sign attached to the Mission Avenue freeway overcrossing located 3/4 mile from the Oceanside Boulevard exit on Interstate 5. The incident lasted roughly an hour before Oceanside Police Department negotiators were able

to bring the man safely into custody via ladder truck, according to CHP Officer Mark Latulippe. California Highway Patrol officers initially closed down both sides of the freeway and redirected northbound rush-hour traffic to the Mission Avenue exit. Latulippe said CHP reopened northbound lanes at about 4:30 p.m.

stitution affects the kidney and urinary bladder and the signs are puffiness, bags under the eyes, thinning hair, premature aging and pale skin. Finally, the wood constitution, affects the liver and gall bladder. Concerns are wrinkles, the ’11 lines’ between the eyebrows and across the forehead, age

spots and sun spots.” Once she knows which meridian is affected, Vogel uses specialized needles to concentrate on the corresponding acupuncture and facial motor points to help restore balance. “The needles work to increase circulation to the face, improving muscle and skin tone and de-

creasing fine lines and wrinkles,” she said. Recognizing that some people have an aversion to needles, Vogel said that not only is the treatment painless, patients even describe it as deeply relaxing. “Patients not only leave here relaxed, they also see a natural glow and improvement after the first treatment,” she said. “It does take several treatments to achieve lasting results. Think of it like going to the gym for your face. You are getting your facial muscles toned and strengthening your constitution.” Vogel said that results can last one to three years after a full round of treatment when patients follow a treatment plan designed for their constitution. “I am adamant about dietary changes and making better choices,” she said. “This is not just a cosmetic treatment; we work to get your whole body in balance. I don’t just treat your one concern; I also help you to prevent further issues.” For more information about North County Natural Medicine and their cosmetic acupuncture services, visit www.northcountynaturalmedicine or call (760) 385-8683.
