School safety consultant hire OK’d By Christina Macone-Greene

John Barkley, CP Air’s chief financial officer, said those routes will be rolled out, but emphasized the Phoenix and San Jose routes as the priority, mainly for businesses who fly employees routinely to those destinations. He said one major tech company had 1,400 flights to Phoenix last year. “The transaction of acquir-

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe School Board voted 5-0 at a special meeting on May 24 to hire a safety consultant. The board will enter an agreement with School Safety Operations, Inc. to have the consultant evaluate the campus and provide analysis. The service agreement is not to exceed $9,900 and is meant to complement the goals of the advisory safety committee, a 25-person board whose members range from teachers and parents to other community stakeholders. The mission is to improve the safety plan at the R. Roger Rowe. The consultant will assess the school campus and provide analysis on any threats or vulnerabilities. The advisory safety committee was established in March. The special board meeting comes on the heels of a regular May 10 school board meeting when the recommendation of hiring a safety consultant was split with a 2-2 vote. Board member Scott Kahn abstained, and president Todd Frank and vice president Tyler Seltzer were in favor. Board members Sarah Neal and Tom Barton were not in favor. On May 24, Frank provided time for board members to share their viewpoints before the public comment. He also noted he was not planning to change his vote from the last time. Kahn said he abstained from the last vote because it was a split vote. “This was Tom’s (Barton) first meeting and I didn’t want to start our tenure together with a split vote that way,” he said, adding that the time since then allowed for public feedback and opinions. “I’m more than ready

Library guild votes in new president By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild’s annual meeting on May 24, Executive Director Susan Appleby conveyed her appreciation for outgoing guild board President Art Yayanos. She recognized his service to the community for the past five years. “You’ve been a very strong advocate for progress at this branch,” she said. “You have made my job so much easier. Your quiet strength is such strong leadership in a way that I’m not sure most people recognize.” Appleby went on to say how Yayanos has teed the guild up for the next 50 years and thanked him for that. Appleby then turned to introduce new the new guild board president. Mary Siegrist, who has experience in the information services industry, will start in July. Appleby also noted Siegrist is a volunteer at the Book Cellar, a used bookstore operated by the library guild. She is also a lifelong reader. “I am personally grateful to her for her commitment to serve and lead the guild for the next three years,” Appleby said. Siegrist told the members of the guild in the audience that she was honored and humbled to be their president for the next three years. “I have never been a board president of a nonprofit board before, so I will learn

along with the steps that Art has actually provided in his example,” she said. “I know we have a lot of indebtedness to Art, but I also want to mention a few things that I think that Art has contributed to this library.” Siegrist pointed out Yayanos’ leadership, kindness and professionalism. She also noted how he created the executive director operational type of model being used today at the guild by Appleby. Before this, it was all volunteer-based. “Art has been so involved in the grants and the ADA compliance aspect of our library,” she said, also adding the work he did on the bylaws, articles of incorporation and new library brand. The brand changed from the Rancho Santa Fe Library

Guild to the Library Guild of Rancho Santa Fe. The guild lost money with the old name when checks were issued as the Rancho Santa Fe Library with the “guild” portion being left out. Many times, this money was instead deposited to the San Diego County Library other than the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild. The new branding name intends to fix this issue. “Finally, Art built a great board of directors — that makes my job so much easier because of the board that he had,” Siegrist said. “So, I’m very grateful.” She went on to say that she didn’t have a lot of goals, only a few to start with. The first was to continue moving forward with the guild’s path of progress. “We have a wonderful 50-year history,” she said. “I

think that all of us are very committed to serving our community of readers and our patrons are very, very generous guild members and benefactors.” Siegrist shared how the guild goes above and beyond what the county of San Diego provides such as the children’s programs, author talks and special events. All of these things will continue, she said. “The map has been already laid out, and I’m just going to follow the map,” she said. “We have an amazing, remarkable facility here, and it’s been maintained beautifully — we want to continue with and want to enhance it based off of community feedback and community engagement.” Siegrist also highlighted the great San Diego County librarians who work at their branch. “We are very, very grateful for them,” she said. “They’re (librarians) wonderful people.” Siegrist said their board of directors was fantastic and so were the volunteers. She went on to say that because of the volunteers, they were able to do these special events and champion the Book Cellar. Without the volunteers, she said she really didn’t know if they could. “It’s nice to be stepping down as a president of an organization to know that someone who’s coming behind you is going to be fantastic,” Yayanos said.

Dill stepping down as SDUHSD superintendent Board member: Tenure marked by ‘missteps’ By Carey Blakely

REGION — The superintendent of San Dieguito Union High School District, Eric Dill, announced his resignation on May 25. Dill will finish the school year and then take a new position as the chief business official for the Santa Clara Unified School District. Dill was appointed interim superintendent in July 2016 before becoming super- Eric Dill intendent on Jan. 1, 2017. He had worked for the district since 2001, primarily in business services. In Dill’s statement to staff, he wrote, “This truly is a special place, not because of the high achievement for which we are known, but for the people who make it possible.” According to a district press release, the board will meet next week “to discuss short and long-term steps to appoint the next superintendent.” Board President Beth Hergesheimer wrote in her official announcement that the board and staff “will work together to ensure a smooth start to the next school year and continue to provide a world-class education for students of all

abilities.” Board member John Salazar emailed a statement to The Coast News that said, “I was not surprised to hear that Superintendent Dill resigned today. He was not hired by the full board, but by a 3-2 split vote. Under his leadership we have seen many missteps, from growing budget deficits to outright parent demonstrations regarding the mishandling of our special needs students’ programs. I believe that Mr. Dill found out that this is not a district where an administrator cannot put student interests first. “Parents in this district are very informed and demand fiscal responsibility. They also want smaller class sizes, later school start times and increased security on campus. Mr. Dill had a hard time balancing the demands from our employee unions and our taxpayers. I look forward to hiring a new superintendent hopefully from outside our district who will be able to be an innovative leader who will move the district to fiscal solvency and will put our students’ needs ahead of all other special interests.”

ENCINITAS — Consider this: Every plastic bottle that has ever been manufactured is still on this earth in some form. It takes 700 years for plastic bottles to decompose. Only about 20 percent are recycled. Of the rest, many end up in the ocean and are found in the bodies of sea animals. The plastic bottles photo-degrade, sloughing off BPA, a chemical used for softening plastic. The materials are now being found inside humans who eat seafood. It is estimated by experts that by the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. Angela Georgens, 15, a student at San Dieguito High School Academy in Encinitas, said the problem is not going away. “It is a problem we will have to deal with in the future and people don’t seem very concerned about it,” she said. Georgens and her classmates, with the guidance of homeroom teacher Paul Brice, have put together a recycling program called the SDA Recycling Club, encouraging students to recycle their plastic bottles and other trash at a designated spot on campus. Georgens said while the problem is large, a good

place to raise awareness is at school amongst her peers, a student population of about 1,900. Kevin Rojas, 17, president of the club, and the other students have built a “Giving Tree,” a place for the entire student body to deposit their recyclables. It is made of PVC pipe and large boxes surrounded with wire mesh. Then at the end of the week, clubs, groups and organizations at the school are welcome to pick up the cans and bottles and take them to a recycling center to earn money for their club. Kevin said it is “scary” if all these items are allowed to get into the ecosystem unabated. “It’s a big issue,” he said. “If we don’t stop it, it breaks down to microscopic (size) and it can get into our food. The fish, the seagulls are affected as well.” He said he and Brice are in the process of making videos to show to the rest of the homerooms to get them on board for the project. The project is funded by the school’s foundation and Home Depot. According to the environmental group Ban the Bottle, Americans used 30 billion plastic bottles last year. There are ways to cut down on that number. People can buy and use reus-

able water bottles. Cardboard single-use water bottles and now aluminum bottles are also available. “Aluminum is recycled more regularly than plastic bottles,” said Gulshan Kumar, 26, who founded PathWater, a refillable water bottle, with two friends. “Currently there are countries banning plastic bottles,” Kumar said. “The Salinas School District no longer sells water bottles to students. I have talked to from 3,000 to 5,000 middle school to high school students. They are very receptive. The cool thing is they are learning about all this stuff already.”

Students protest gun shows as fair opens By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Students from local schools were on hand June 1 for opening day of the San Diego County Fair, but not to indulge in fried food, experience thrill rides or visit exhibits. From 3 to 6 p.m., different pairs of teenagers from three middle and high schools near the Del Mar Fairgrounds stood outside the state-owned facility with a banner that read, “Make Our Fairgrounds Gun Free – Stop Gun Shows Here.” “This quiet, purposefully small demonstration … is meant to alert those going to the opening of the fair that these 400 acres of state-owned land should be


used for safe, family-friendly events for all the communities it serves,” Del Mar resident Rose Ann Sharp, a leader with the NeverAgainCA campaign, stated in an email. “With the closure of Torrey Pines school due to a threat of gun violence and the subsequent arrest of a suspect (May 31) … students are keenly aware of the dangers coming to their communities from the gun glorification and nefarious events at gun shows,” she added. Advocates of the shows, which are held about five times a year at the fairgrounds, say banning the TURN TO GUN SHOWS ON 5

Opening day for the San Diego Surf Polo Club season in Del Mar has been pushed back a week to June 17, a move designed to avoid traffic delays anticipated on June 10 due to other events in the area.

Foes of new sober-living home warn of ‘Rehab Riviera’ By Carey Blakely

ENCINITAS — The proliferation of addiction recovery centers in Southern California coastal communities has given rise to the catchy nickname “Rehab Riviera.” Largely unregulated and often incredibly expensive, these sober-living homes and rehab facilities for drug and alcohol addiction have led to numerous homeowner complaints in cities like Costa Mesa. Leucadia residents at the City

Council meeting on May 23 voiced their concerns that Encinitas could be the next stop on the “Rehab Riviera” if the city does not do something to regulate sober-living homes. Chris Rogers shared with the council that shortly after finishing a renovation project on his home, he received a text from a neighbor alerting him that a sober-living home would be operating next door. Rogers, who lives with his wife and their two young children under

age 6, is concerned that the now-open facility called Ohana House will negatively impact his family. The home’s balcony is only 20 feet away, with the potential for cigarette smoke to waft their way, he said. In addition to concerns about his children, Rogers stated, “According to the National Association of Realtors, my housing value lost 8 to 17 percent overnight because I now TURN TO REHAB ON 5

Yet another silly, hopeless plan to split up California


Community choice programs aren’t delivering on clean energy By Jerry Sanders

Eighteen years ago, California was faced with rolling blackouts and a major energy crisis. It may not seem like it, but another energy crisis is brewing – this one caused by cities getting in the business of buying and selling electricity. It was a lack of oversight and poor deregulation that led to those blackouts, when bad actors such as Enron saw an opportunity to game the system, manipulate energy markets and ultimately crash power grids. Now, government-run energy programs – also known as Community Choice Aggregation – are unraveling the centralized planning and service California needs to keep the lights on. As the former mayor of San Diego, I can see why CCAs are attractive to some local lawmakers since they’re billed as cheaper and greener alternatives. But they aren’t delivering on their promises and it’s not a program I would have introduced to taxpayers. As the former mayor of San Diego, I can see why CCAs are attractive to some local lawmakers since they’re billed as cheaper and greener alternatives. But they aren’t delivering on their promises and it’s not a program I would have introduced to taxpayers.

These programs produce very little new renewable energy, instead buying from existing sources, including out-of-state wind and solar farms. They take credit for improving our environment but they’re not actually reducing carbon emissions. For example, Marin Clean Energy, California’s first CCA, was launched eight years ago and is held up as a model. Yet it has not delivered more than 10 percent of its power from new clean energy sources in any year. Government-controlled energy might one day deliver the benefits it promises, but the current market was not designed to support CCAs. Their customers can always return to utility companies. This risk, combined with a lack of credit, means that CCAs are reluctant to purchase long-term contracts for renewable energy, or build new facilities. While utility companies buy nearly all their renewable energy under long-term contracts that lead to new renewable generation development, this has all but stopped because of the uncertainty caused by CCAs. Also, some labor leaders strongly oppose CCAs because they are not creating more jobs. Worse, utility customers in neighboring cities are forced to pay higher en-

ergy bills to subsidize them. So why is California seeing an acceleration of these programs, and why is San Diego even considering forming what would be one of the largest CCAs? Cities are under pressure to comply with their own Climate Action Plans, even though all existing CCAs fall well short of achieving the goal: 100 percent clean energy use. The only way for energy providers to meaningfully reduce emissions is to build more wind, solar, and other green energy sources. CCAs aren’t achieving that, but they do expose cities to significant risks. In San Diego, a city study found that a CCA could require annual revenues of as much as $961 million. Clearly, there are many reasons to be skeptical of government-controlled energy. Local leaders should focus on building more housing near job centers, conserving water and increasing energy efficiency through numerous strategies that do not expose cities and their residents to financial risks or power outages.

More needed to stem rise of vaping among young people I live in Escondido, go to high school, and am concerned about the latest trend I see increasing all over campuses in Escondido and all over our county. In 2016, the age to purchase any tobacco product was changed to 21. E-cigarettes and vapes are considered tobacco products under new law. While the law exists, I see a growing use of e-cigarettes among my classmates who are in high school. The majority of teens who get their hands on tobacco products turn out to be lifelong users. Many

‘smoke shops’ currently offer e-cigarette and e-juices while the FDA continues to postpone their ingredient listing compliance deadline. This leaves users uncertain on what they are putting into their bodies. Research shows that nicotine, carcinogens and even cannabis products can be found in flavored vape juice. These products are designed and promoted to attract youth and young adults and trick us into being lifelong users. A proven solution to prevent youth from getting products is a local Tobacco Retail Licensing

policy. These policies help ensure that retailers don’t sell products like vapes to minors. I’m currently the ViceChair for the Coalition for Drug Free Escondido. The goals of the Coalition are to establish and strengthen community collaboration in support of community efforts to prevent youth substance use and help the next generation to be the smokefree. Arturo Velasco is an Escondido resident and Vice-Chair of Coalition for Drug Free Escondido.

t’s silly season again in California. For the seventh time in the last 30 years or so, activists are suggesting the state needs to be split. But this effort has gotten enough financial backing to make the November general election ballot. While this year’s effort seems fatuous, some past attempts to tear California into pieces actually made a little sense. That’s especially been true of the so-called state of Jefferson, which would combine most of rural Northern California with a slice of southern Oregon and hope to create something new. That notion first appeared in the early 1940s, as rural residents felt trampled in state politics by the far more populous regions surrounding Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. Their gripes have had more merit ever since the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark one-person, onevote decision destroyed the North state’s former dominance in the state Senate, where representation long was based on geography and not population. Now, Jefferson adherents say they have so few representatives in Sacramento they might as well have none and that their interests are constantly overlooked. But Jefferson advocates have yet to prove their putative state could be economically viable, nor have they figured a way around the Constitutional requirement that – failing a successful state initiative – the entire state Legislature – and Oregon’s, too – would have to agree to their forming the first rump state since the Civil War era. Chances are, Jefferson would end up with two Republicans in the U.S. Senate, making odds very

Girls Scouts entertain at senior home

Vector Control to conduct mosquito larvicide drops

By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — “Let’s go make some smiles.” With those directions, the 12 members of Solana Beach Girl Scout Troop 3103 headed into Coastal Breeze Assisted Living and Memory Care to sing and dance for residents. The 30-minute performance seemed to exceed the goal. “I thought they were excellent,” 95-year-old Charlotte Ross said. “It was filled with joy. It made me happy.” The June 1 routine marked the fifth time the fifth-graders have entertained residents at one of Coastal Breeze’s four locations in an effort to earn their Bronze Award, the third highest honor for Girl Scouts and the highest for those at the junior level. “The girls researched the positive effects of music to the brain to increase quality of life for seniors with dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease,” Bronze Award parent coordinator Sandra Brook said. “They learned that music makes people smarter, happier and can spark memories that were otherwise lost.” Troop members also developed a visitation program that encourages other local Girl Scouts to sing or perform music in Coastal Breeze’s residential memory care facilities in Solana Beach and Del Mar. The girls, who usually choose the songs and choregraph the dance routines, said the best part of each performance is making their audience happy. “It’s nice when they sing and dance with you,” one scout added. Ross did just that during “Make New Friends,” offering a few words to fill in when the girls forgot some of the lyrics, which occasionally happens. Troop 3103 also sang “Bazooka Bubble Gum,” danced to “September” and recited the Girl Scout Pledge and Promise. Previous performances included “America the Beautiful,” a popular singalong, and “The Bunny Hop.” Each girl also gave the residents a homemade, personalized card. “With the Girl Scout law and promise in mind, they are making the world a better place by helping our local seniors,” Brook said. Troop members, who attend Skyline Elementary School and St. James Academy, include Gabriella Brook, Maya Gallego, Ellie, Koff, Norah Kotnick, Laila Kudirka, Marina MacDougall, Ella Nguyen, Lilly O’Shaughnessy, Maya Paeske, Roma Panchal, Ava Walker and Kendall Yee.

Tour to help preserve Boathouses ENCINITAS — The Encinitas Preservation Association (EPA) will once again be hosting the historical bus tour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 23, thanks to a sponsorship from Mike Evans of Sea Coast Exclusive Properties.

have a sober house next to me.” Alcoholics and addicts are considered disabled under federal and state law and, therefore, cannot be discriminated against. That protection extends to their housing rights, including sober-living homes, where they can recover from substance abuse and attempt to stay sober in the presence of others who are doing the same. Sober homes fall within single-family zoning requirements if they have no more than six residents. According to the California Research Bureau report “Sober Living Homes in California: Options for State and Local Regulation,” a sober-living facility “may serve as a crucial, or even indispensable, support for individuals undergoing treatment but it does not provide treatment or care, whether medical or personal (as in an assisted living facility). The state laws and licensing requirements that govern treatment and care facilities do not currently include sober living homes. This means that the state does not keep any list of registered sober living homes, conduct inspections of sober living homes or perform any of the other activities associated with licensing facilities.” That lack of regulation as well as questions about what their rights are as homeowners were major themes in the remarks Rogers and other neighbors

After sharing that her brother had been a drug addict, Dudnick said, “I feel very strongly about protecting the rights of the people in the sober homes as well, making sure that this is a facility for them and not just a way to collect rent from people, especially across the street from me.

The whole thing is a little unsettling for us.” Rogers said Ohana House charges $3,000 to $5,000 per bed per month, but the organization could not be reached to confirm those numbers.

REGION — San Diego County workers planned to drop the year’s second round of mosquito larvicide on local waterways Wednesday. Vector Control workers were scheduled to use a helicopter to drop batches of solid, grainy larvicide on roughly 48 rivers, streams and ponds throughout the urban parts of the county, officials said. The total area covered amounts to about 1,000 acres of water, and much of it can serve as breeding grounds for mosquito populations. The poison is not harmful for humans or pets, but is deadly for any

mosquito larvae who consume it, killing them before they’re able to grow into blood-sucking adult mosquitoes, officials said. County workers last dropped the poison on May 9. In addition to the larvicide drops, County Vector Control also treats about 1,400 potential mosquito-breeding areas by hand each year, gives out free mosquito-eating fish to the public, tracks down and treats neglected swimming pools, tests dead birds for West Nile virus and monitors for other potential mosquito-borne illnesses.


Standing at the intersection of Via de la Valle and Jimmy Durante Boulevard, Caroline Zdanowski, a Canyon Crest Academy freshman, and Jack Chine, a seventh-grader at The Rhoades School, said the response was mostly positive. “We’ve had a lot of thumbs up and honks,” Caroline said. “There was just one head shake,” Jack added. Sharp said the goal of the demonstration was to urge passers-by to send letters to the 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors, who will discuss the shows at the Sept. 11 meeting.


events infringes on their First and Second Amendments rights and will not stop gun violence. Additionally, they say attendees are law-abiding citizens who attend the shows, which are heavily regulated, for education and to buy other products. State law prohibits anyone who buys a gun at a show from taking it home that day. Following a mandatory waiting period and background check, the firearm must be picked up off-site from an authorized dealer. ry council — all women. The residence was described as being “exclusively for women who are seeking a retreat resort atmosphere.” Encinitas considered enacting an ordinance in 2015 for sober-living homes, which would have included requirements like obtaining a city permit, having a manager on-site at all times, and maintaining a 650foot buffer from any other sober-living or treatment facility. But those policies were not implemented due to concerns regarding the litigation brought against Costa Mesa for enacting a similar ordinance. City attorney Glenn Sabine was asked about the status of the Costa Mesa lawsuits during the council meeting on May 23, but he said he was unsure and would have to follow up. Sabine did tell Rogers and the other concerned neighbors, “I just want to make it very clear that if there are any violations of the law that any other residents would be subject to, it applies to sober-living facilities as well. So if there are disturbances, noise, trash, unkempt property, then you can report it to the city, and action will be taken.” Shay Barnes, a neighbor living near Ohana House, suggested that the City Council look into the ordinance adopted by Prescott, Arizona. Prescott implemented regulations for sober-living homes in January 2017 that required criminal background checks for employees, exit policies for evicted occu-

pants and mandatory training for on-site managers. In February 2018, a Prescott-area newspaper called The Daily Courier reported that since those policies took effect, the number of sober-living homes in Prescott had decreased by 77 percent. At one point, the reporter noted, there had been about 200 such homes in the city of 40,000 people. But in nearby Prescott Valley, where no such ordinance exists, the number of sober-living homes had risen from 34 to 56 during the same time period. Encinitas resident Jim Dudnick warned the council members, “By doing nothing, you could invite the potential that ‘One of the 10 best places to recover from addiction’ could be Encinitas.” Since sober-living facilities were not on the council’s agenda, no formal discussion or actions could be taken during that meeting. Some people and organizations perceive cities’ attempts to bar more sober-living facilities as discriminatory and typical of “not in my backyard” attitudes. Rep. Darrell Issa was quoted by Sovereign Health as stating at a San Clemente meeting on sober-living homes, “A lot of people will say that I don’t want this person in my backyard, but one thing I know is that person is going to have to be in someone’s backyard. We have to care for them, and we have to find ways to make it work.”

Del Mar offers free EV charging for 6 months By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — For a limited time only, electric vehicle owners can charge their cars for free at Del Mar’s recently opened civic center. Council members at the May 21 meeting agreed unanimously to launch the six-month pilot program to gather real-time data to create fees that will eventually be implemented. The city spent $30,750 to buy and install three wall-mounted stations that can charge five cars at a time — including one at a handicapped-accessible parking space — in the parking garage at 1050 Camino del Mar. The purchase price includes a five-year maintenance agreement. Clement Brown, the city’s environmental sustainability projects manager, said he looked at 29 city halls in the state that have charging stations. All but nine provide free charging,

but many are using older units that don’t charge as fast and have no ongoing service or network fees. “So it isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison to the type of chargers we have,” he said. Council members were given three options for a fee schedule. The city could charge per kilowatt hour, per hour like a parking fee or use a combination of the two. The other decision is whether the city wants fullcost recovery or recovery only on capital, operating or electricity costs. Depending on the scenario used, the costs range from 0.03 per kilowatt hour to $3.44 per hour of parking. Clement said he devised those fees based on the assumptions that the units would be used four hours a day every day of the year, and the average cost

of electricity would be 0.25 per kilowatt hour with an output of six kilowatts per station. Clement said the sixmonth trial period will cost Del Mar about $2,700 for the electricity. Councilman Dave Druker said the pilot program “makes a whole lot of sense” but “we are going to have to charge for this … at some point.” Mayor Dwight Worden agreed, adding that the prices must be competitive so people use the stations. Councilman Terry Sinnott said the city also needs to find out the life expectancy of the units and set aside funds for their replacement. “These systems I don’t think last that long,” he said. Although the new civic center is fairly green, the charging stations are not connected to the solar panels. That way the city can

better track the use of the charging units. Staff will also be working with the Sustainability Advisory Board to develop a program that encourages local business owners and employees to use the charging stations. Druker said the “makes some sense” but “we just need to make sure (it) is actually doable.” “It has to be extremely simple and knowable,” he said. “I just don’t want to create an incentive program that anybody can somehow use and continue to use and we have no way to know whether or not they are legitimately people that we want to incentivize.” Councilwoman Sherryl Parks said signage that a pilot program is in place is also important. “I’m going to have people that say, ‘This was free last month. Why isn’t it free now?’” she said.

Surfside remodel on hold, concert venue price tag too high By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Faced with a $4 million funding shortfall, the 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors unanimously agreed at the May 22 meeting to reject both construction bids and re-evaluate the remodel of Surfside Race Place into what they are now calling a “multipurpose entertainment venue.” The initial estimate to transform about 40 percent of the 90,000-square-foot facility into an approximately 1,900-seat concert area, a restaurant and a beer history and tasting room was $11 million when plans were 60 percent complete. Combined with needed heating, ventilation and air conditioning upgrades, the project cost came to about $23.6 million. The nine-member board that governs the Del Mar Fairgrounds, where Surfside is located, said another project — a required water treatment plant for storm-water runoff — was expected to cost $10.5 million. But the lowest bid received for that was $14.6 million. “Both projects came in higher than expected,” Director Russ Penniman said, adding that increased construction costs were partly to blame. “The economy’s humming and everyone’s busy.” The 22nd DAA, which has been approved for an $18.5 million California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank (IBank) loan, has already spent

money on both projects, including $1.3 million on the Surfside remodel. But the total amount spent plus income that could be used still left a huge funding gap. Directors last month discussed the possibility of using a deductive change order, meaning they would work with the contractor to identify items that could be eliminated temporarily and completed later when the budget allows. But Penniman said that would only lower the price by $750,000 to $1 million. Because of the higher construction costs, the re-

turn on investment is currently around 3 percent, a number board members said they would prefer to see in the double digits. “These are obviously very tough numbers,” Director Pierre Sleiman said. “The fact that we’re facing a challenge on two sides — one, coming up with the funds and then two, a not very strong profit margin — is what makes it very hard for me to consider moving forward with this. “With a 20 percent profit margin or something palatable at the end, then that makes sense,” he added. “But the fact that it’s both,

But I think we need to take another look. … I still think it’s very, very doable.” In his motion to reject the two bids received, Director David Watson recommended that Shewmaker and Penniman “do what needs to be done” to re-evaluate the project and “bring it back when you have a solution,” possibly in about four to six months. He also stressed the importance of funding and completing the storm-water project. “If we don’t do it we’ll be facing all kinds of enforcement action from the water board,” he said.

Monopoly-themed games hit North County Animal center volunteer helps save woman’s life

By Steve Puterski

REGION — From La Paloma Theater to the Barrio, to Buccaneer Beach Park, newly released board games bring the local flair to their players. Carlsbad, Encinitas and Oceanside are the latest municipalities to be featured as a Monopoly-themed game. San Diego is also a featured game. Late for the Sky, a Cincinnati-based company, specializes in themed Monopoly games and has produced hundreds of themes since the company’s founding in 1984. Its first game was inspired by the University of Miami (Ohio), where company founder Robyn Wilson graduated from in 1980. But last week, the company unveiled its four latest additions to its portfolio with the addition of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside and San Diego. The game costs $19.98. “We research local cities to find towns where people love to be,” said Jessica Staub, marketing manager at Late for the Sky. “We are constantly working on new-Opoly games, and Carlsbad and Encinitas were great places to start as we branch into California cities.” Game play, meanwhile, is like the original version of Monopoly, albeit with a few twists. Two to six can play and choose one of six pieces — a high five, smile,

heart, dog, pretzel or shoe. Each player begins with $1,630 in Monopoly money, and instead of houses and hotels to build up each property, the themed version showcase city blocks and keys to the city, said Jessica Staub, office administrator for Late for the Sky. The games, though, are only available for purchase at Walmart or on Late for the Sky’s website. The company said it secured an exclusivity agreement with Walmart to help market the game being manufactured in the U.S.

The game took about one month to produce as Late for the Sky researches each city using online reviews, visitor guides, chamber of commerce sites and local publications to determine where locals and visitors “know and love,” Staub said. As for Late for the Sky, the company is also moving toward a more eco-friendly approach in its production and delivery of the games. The game uses 100 percent recycled paper, while the fiberboard used in making the set-up boxes and game boards is all recy-

cled material. No alcohol is used in the printing operation, instead opting for soybased inks. Corn-based shrinkwrap is currently being used and will soon replace all petroleum based shrink film. The plastic game trays, currently a high impact styrene, are being replaced by a water bottle grade No. 1 recyclable material. Metal game tokens are being transitioned from lead-free pewter to zinc, and recycled glass is becoming an alternative to styrene “house and hotel” game pieces.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Helen Woodward Animal Center’s mission of “People Helping Animals, Animals Helping People” can be seen in the actions of the center’s veterinary team during their bi-weekly Pets Without Walls visits. The center’s latest program, dedicated to providing health checks, spayand-neuter services, and supplies to the dogs and cats who reside with homeless families touches countless lives at the Alpha Project’s Temporary Bridge Shelter and at Father Joe’s San Diego Neil Good Day Center. But May 16, a visit highlighted the mission in an unexpected way. Elizabeth Valocchi, HWAC veterinarian assistant, stopped her work with animals to help save the life of an Alpha Project client suffering a heart attack. Valocchi, who has worked with the center since 2015, was busy serving pets during a Pets Without Walls visit at the Alpha Projects Temporary Bridge Shelter May 16, when she overheard an individual saying that a woman had just collapsed. Finding the woman unresponsive and without a heartbeat, Valocchi immediately began chest compressions until the ambulance arrived about five minutes later. Once the woman was in the

hands of the EMTs, Valocchi returned to her work helping animals. “I am incredibly impressed with the heroic and humble way Liz (Valocchi) handled this situation,” said Helen Woodward Animal Center President and CEO Mike Arms. “I see the hearts of our staff members in the work they do.

RSF Garden Club awards grant money, fills board seats 10 groups share $50K in funding By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — This year marked the fourth consecutive year that the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club hosted its annual grant awards ceremony. On May 23, members of the garden club and grant recipients gathered to celebrate the 10 organizations which received a combined total of $50,881 in funding. First up to speak was Debby Syverson for the Friends of San Pasqual Academy, which received $10,000. In 2017, the group was granted the same amount so that it could build the Serenity Garden at the school campus which serves foster teens. According to Syverson, teens who have endured trauma, abuse or neglect find solace in the garden. “It’s a designated space

in nature that calms and relaxes — you helped us create the Serenity Garden,” she told members of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club. The money this year, she said, would go to financially support new plantings and a tiller and auger for a new tractor. Syverson said the school campus has 14 acres that cultivate certified organic produce sold under the name of Dragon Organics. Syverson said students are going to paint rocks and place them in the Serenity Garden to recognize the garden club, which made the Serenity Garden possible. Caitlin Kreutz, Parks and Recreation assistant manager for the Rancho Santa Fe Association, was also on hand to accept two grants at $7,000 each for two Association-owned properties: the Osuna Ranch and

Arroyo Property. In 2017, the Association received funds for the same properties. Kreutz showed before and after photos of the improvements at the Osuna Ranch from those grants in

Butz, Monroe elected as newest directors By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club’s annual meeting on May 23 covered business matters including who will fill the director seats formerly held by Covenant residents Fred and Pam Wasserman. Board President Phil Larsen said the Wasserman family members officially retired from the board. “I am sorry they are not here tonight,” Larsen said. “They have been members of the Garden Club for seven years and have held positions of responsibility as officers. At any rate, we shall miss them.” Enough Garden Club members were present for a quorum, so two new board directors were elected. Larsen said that one of its newly elected members was Ted Butz, who recently moved to the Ranch. Also elected to serve on the board was Julie Monroe, who also volunteers at the organization’s consignment shop. “Ted previously came from Philadelphia and had worked around the world,” Larsen said. “Ted and his family lived in Hong Kong for a few years.” Butz was CEO of a specialty chemical manufacturer, Larsen added. Larsen described Monroe as a dedicated Garden Club member who will be acting as secretary. “In Julie’s spare time, she is a silversmith and owns a jewelry making business,” Larsen said. “She and her husband, Mark, many years ago founded and then later sold a medical services company. She is a very accomplished member of the board, and we are happy that she is with us.” Next up was Executive Director Shelly Hart, who provided a rundown of past activities and workshops such as a visit from Sonja Glassman, who authored “The Big Promise” and had a book signing. Hart also talked about workshops that took place at both the garden club, such

as a rose workshop, and the Santaluz Club, which hosted an herb workshop. Caitlin Kreutz of the Rancho Santa Association championed the seminars at Santaluz. “Caitlin is a horticulture specialist that helped us to learn how to plan our own herb gardens,” Hart said. “It was fantastic. We had about 30 people over at the Santaluz Club, and it was very fun.” Hart also noted the field trips the club has embarked on such as The Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana and a train ride to San Juan Capistrano to visit the mission. Hart then shared the success of the most recent event in the Covenant in

May, Rambling through the Ranch. It was co-chaired by both Hart and Janet Lawless Christ. "We had four open-air trolleys and four beautiful gardens that ranged from succulent gardens to tropical gardens,” she said. “We even had one with an ocean view, a very modern-themed garden with ocean view and then a golf course view.” Hart then shared upcoming field trips, including one to the Butterfly Farms in Encinitas on June 18, and the other, a DIY Earring Workshop on June 25 with board member Monroe.

2017, which expanded the walking trails that were enjoyed by even non-equestrian Covenant members. Indigenous shrubs and trees were also planted. The grant funding this year would further extend the path and landscaping. The trail, Kreutz said, would run parallel to Via de la Valle and veer east toward the northern portion of the property. The Arroyo Property, which Kreutz described as an open space preserve, will continue its beautification project. “We will plant native trees and shrubs,” she said, adding how non-native plants will be removed to promote fire safety. “We can’t wait to get started on these projects.”

Solutions for Change, which helps the homeless by offering sober housing, also owns an aquaponics farm operation in Vista. It operates a two-acre farm and 30,000-square-foot greenhouse. The farm grows more than 100,000 pounds of certified organic produce every year. Robert Webster of Solutions for Change accepted the $6,776 grant, which will go toward equipment such as a blower, air stones and a fogger for its aquaponics farm. Webster said Solutions for Change helps the homeless through job training and reunites families. Christina McGoldrick, garden coordinator of Hope Elementary, brought an enormous bouquet of fresh-

ly grown sunflowers for members of the garden club. She accepted a $5,000 grant while sharing how the money will go toward the further enhancement of its Native Habitat Garden, and International and Butterfly Waystation. Last year, the school received $4,500 which helped cultivate its gardens. McGoldrick said these gardens will also be used for the school curriculum named the Next Generation Science Standards for kindergarten through fifth grade students. Ecolife received $4,500, which will provide 15 Aquaponic kits and curriculum to 15 schools in underprivileged neighborhoods. The grant was $1,000 more than last year. Other grant recipients were San Elijo Conservancy for $3,200, Park Dale Elementary for $3,000, Oak and Valley Middle School for $3,000. The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society received $1,405, which was accepted by its board president John Vreeburg. He explained funds would be used for the removal of a Podocarpus tree in the Historical Society's courtyard area causing root damage — the extra money would also replenish plantings including water-wise succulents. “Thank you very much to the garden club, and we thank you for your support,” Vreeburg said.

Vain about my veins small talk jean gillette


should have been a concert pianist, or perhaps played basketball, because I have long fingers and hands as large as many men. Sadly, I possessed none of the additional brain mapping for hand-eye coordination or musical skills, nor the discipline to practice. Julliard and the NBA never suffered my auditions. Oddly, as I grew up, my big hands and feet were the least of my reasons to be self-conscious. The long list that took precedence ranged from thin, limp hair that refused to hold a decent flip, to a dreadfully boyish figure. I’ll spare you the full list. Eventually, though, I noticed that my hands were not only large. They also possessed veins like a power lifter. I got a fair number of good things from the spin of my parents’ gene pools, but at first blush, having large, protruding veins didn’t seem all that swell. Let’s just say I never finished that application to be a hand model. Fortune, however, smiled in the form of a man who was willing to marry me in spite of my goofy veins. In fact, I am just a wee bit suspicious that my big veins may have actually been a plus in my husband’s scientist eyes. That’s because he has horrible, skinny, flabby, slippery, impossible -to -get-a-nee dle-into veins. And just to make things worse, he is O negative. Everyone wants his blood, but any time they try, his entire arm bruises.

For me, giving blood as an adult was like winning a beauty pageant. Those fabulous, ropy veins that bedeck my hands and arms suddenly became a marvelous thing to behold. That is, if you are a nurse looking to plant a large needle into them. Those who draw blood for a living unfailingly burst into an ear-to-ear grin when I lay my arm on the table. “Now that’s the kind of veins I love to see,” said one. “Wow. This will be easy,” another quipped. I blushed demurely, as if they had complimented me on my adorable, little nose or lovely, thick hair. And to sweeten the pot, I am A negative. It’s not O, but it still puts me right up on the most-wanted list. I do occasionally long for the days in my 20s when I didn’t weigh enough to give blood. That is not a problem now. My husband’s best effort at providing his children with great veins only scored 50 percent. Our daughter’s are just like his, as is her loathing of needles. My son hit the jackpot with my veins plus Dad’s blood type. The blood mobile nurses know him by his first name. I suspect he gets an extra doughnut. Pair my above-average veins with my lily-white skin and I become the blood-drawer’s dream. Like MapQuest in high def. You want blood. Here’s the spot. You can’t miss. I want you all to remember that and appreciate it the next time you see my legs in a pair of shorts. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who clots well, too. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

to vote on the issue,” he said. Barton said he felt there was some misunderstanding about his “no” vote. It was not that he was not in favor of hiring a safety consultant but instead wanted to table the discussion. Barton said it was his understanding that the stakeholder committee had not fully expressed its desires regarding what consultant to hire. Now that they did have an opinion on the matter, Barton said he no longer had to withhold his vote. “I do think that it is important to get another expert involved who can give us feedback on other broader safety issues,” said Barton, noting how this consultant was skilled in particular security issues. “I also think there is a broader safety concern that we need to be more informed about.” mentioned Barton safety on campus and the parking lot and said seeking additional expertise would be encouraged. Neal said school safety was always a priority

for her — the first thing she asked for when she got her seat on the board was a copy of the school’s comprehensive safety plan. She reviewed it and noted some areas needed work. Neal said she made a motion to postpone moving forward for a couple of reasons. “It was my understanding that the committee’s goal was to create a comprehensive safety plan and then I saw we are also voting on a consultant, whose partial role is to complete a comprehensive safety plan,” she said. “I didn’t want to see parallel work going on.” Neal also serves on the advisory safety committee and felt its first meeting had great information. It was also mentioned that a school consultant for safety was on the horizon for an agenda. “I felt that there needed to be more due diligence to understand what the (safety consultant) scope of services was,” she said. “I also wanted to make sure that committee had the opportunity to discuss if that (safety consultant services) was a broad enough scope.”

Neal shared that she personally did not see the negative consequences of waiting a month to decide at the previous May meeting. “I’m glad we are all here and fully supportive of moving forward with a security evaluation,” said Neal, adding that she wanted to ensure that safety issues brought up in the parent and teacher survey would also be evaluated. Last to speak was Seltzer. “I was supportive of the recommendation of hiring a consultant a couple weeks ago and continue to be supportive of it today,” Seltzer said. “I thought it was a reasonable request from our superintendent and from our chief business officer.” He also noted that he cared greatly about results and would never not disparage or disrespect the process. “I thought it (May 10 board meeting) was a great example of a focus on process and study get(ting) in the way of results and productivity,” Seltzer said. “I’m glad we are here today to put this item back on the agenda.”

September 2, 1915 May 28, 2018

Edith Johnson of Encinitas passed away peacefully at the age of 102. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, she worked for the FBI in Minnesota and Alaska. She met and married her husband, Don, during World War II and they settled in San Diego. They raised their family in San Diego and La Habra, and retired to Encinitas in 1976. Although Don passed in 2009, Edith is survived by a large and loving family – 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren.

Many people do not realize that the design of the flag has been officially modified 26 times since 1777. Prior to the proclamation of the 48-star flag, there was no official arrangement of the stars. This resulted in the various designs officially recognized during our country’s history. Our flag has become a powerful symbol of Americanism, and is proudly flown over many businesses and homes. We hope you will join us as we salute and honor “Old Glory” and all that it represents on Flag Day and every day!

ing the airline that’s already operating makes it a different proposition in bringing something to Carlsbad,” Barkley said. “If you already have the infrastructure that we have … it really fast tracks the process. The only thing left is to lease some space in the terminal and our destinations.” For years, Vallas has attempted to launch the airline, but hit roadblocks for certifications and approvals with San Diego County, which owns and operates the airport, and the Federal Aviation Administration. Currently, the county is reviewing CP Air’s application. “The county has accepted CPA’s application for commercial service, and we are processing the CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) review for CPA’s request. Once the CEQA review is completed, we will be able to determine the next steps and timing,” said Jessica Northrup, the county’s public communications officer for the land use and environmental group. Vallas and his investors (The Coast News publisher Jim Kydd is an investor) announced last fall the acquisition of Aerodynamics, which has four planes, mostly for charter service. Barkley said he is working on leasing more jets, including the larger Embraer 175, which holds 70 passengers. Aerodynamics’ commercial and charter operations (under SkyValue and Great Lakes Airlines), which includes contracts with NASCAR teams and the NCAA for college athletic programs, will be rebranded as California Pacific Airlines. “This will be the true, hometown airline of Carlsbad’s Palomar Airport,” Hook said. “It is with great pleasure that I can say that.” Of course, the biggest selling point for CP Air is a fast, easy flight process. CROP Hook and Barkley emphasized.93the toll passengers, .93 in North County, especially 4.17 when flying out of undergo San 4.28 Diego International Airport. At Palomar, parking is $5, security lines are much shorter and the time spent commuting is less. As for safety, Hook said Aerodynamics’ record “speaks for itself,” noting the regional carrier has never had an incident in more than 50 years of service. “It’s one of the safest airlines in the country,” he added. Additionally, CP Air will partner with major carriers, such as United and American, for international travel. Hook said a customer can buy a ticket, fly from Palomar to one of its locations and transition to another airline, including baggage, seamlessly. “We do need more planes,” Barkley said. “I’m trying to get my hands on as many planes as possible. As CFO, my focus is acquiring as many assets as possible to be successful.”

ENCINITAS — After 37 years in Encinitas Village, Lawrance Contemporary Furniture celebrated a grand opening in its new home on May 19. The new location, in Encinitas Marketplace, boasts a larger showroom to display Southern California’s most impressive collection of modern furniture and accessories. Howard Haimsohn, owner and president of Lawrance, is enthusiastic about the new digs. “We are excited about the new showroom,” he said. “It’s a showcase building, which we created with the help of the landlord. We used a renowned local architect, David Keitel with Domus Studio Architects, to create a space that represents who we are. The building, with its sophisticated and clean architecture, is representative of what we do on the inside.” Since 1937, Lawrance has been a leading supplier of contemporary furniture, first from its San Diego showroom. Today, Haimsohn runs the family business side by side with his

News of the Weird Oops! On May 1, as airmen of the 91st Missile Wing Security Forces traversed the gravel back roads of North Dakota between two of the nuclear missile launch sites they are charged with protecting, the back hatch of their truck fell open, allowing a 42-pound metal box of explosive grenade rounds to fall out. Despite deploying more than 100 airmen to walk the entire 6-mile route the team had driven, The Washington Post reported on May 15, the ammunition still hadn't been found. The Air Force's Office of Special Investigations has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the box and has alerted local farmers and oil field vendors in the area that the box could be dangerous if damaged.

wife Julie with help from their children, Joel Haimsohn and Bethany DelConte. “My grandparents started this business and now I’m the third generation in my family to run it,” Haimsohn said. “My son and daughter are now the fourth generation to be involved. We understand and appreciate the importance of family-run businesses and buy local whenever we Animal Antics -- In Lodi, California, a small black cat took up residence on May 11 on a high ledge near the large outdoor sign of a Chili's restaurant and thwarted attempts by management, who self-identified as "cat people," to be rescued. As customers took pictures, Restaurant Cat, as it came to be known, stared down calmly, KTXL TV reported. But when Chili's employees used a ladder to try to reach it, the cat climbed behind the neon chili pepper and wouldn't come out, so they left food and water. Presumably it's keeping the pigeons away. [Fox40 TV, 5/13/2018] -- Meanwhile, in Perth, Australia, another restaurant has taken a novel approach to a different animal problem: Customers at Hillary's 3Sheets are being offered water guns to shoot at seagulls, which have been ruining diners' waterfront meals. "It was bad," owner Toby Evans told Nine Network television on May 16, admitting the idea was "a desperate measure. Before, they'd wait until customers had finished and got up, but now they're getting cheekier and cheekier." Customers are on board, saying the pistols are working. (Maybe they need a Restaurant Cat of their own.) [Nine Network, 5/16/2018] But, Why? -- Making good on his promise, Welshman Mark Williams, 43, celebrated his third world snooker championship by conducting the post-match news conference at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England, in the buff. Williams, who beat John Higgins of Scotland on May 7, is the event's oldest winner in 40 years, Reuters noted. "I'm not going to say


any space according to your taste and budget.” The decision to open a showroom in Encinitas nearly four decades ago was well thought out. “I was just a kid when we opened the second store,” Haimsohn said. “We recognized we were getting a lot of customers coming to us from coastal North County so we did our research and decided that this is where we needed to be. The architecture,

anything stupid ... but to be honest if I won this next year, I'd cartwheel down here naked," Williams promised. [Reuters, 5/8/2018] -- The Daytona Beach International Airport was briefly evacuated early on May 11 when John Greenwood, 25, caused a ruckus as he rode around the baggage carousel in the nude, trying to get out onto the tarmac, reported News4Jax. Sheriff's deputies shocked him with a Taser, to which he responded: "We gotta get outta here, there's a bomb going to go off. I planted a bomb in the bathroom." After sweeping the airport, officials found no explosives, but Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said they did find Greenwood's clothes in a backpack hidden in a hole in the bathroom wall. Described by Chitwood as a frequent flyer, Greenwood is known to local law enforcement, and he admitted taking drugs on Thursday night. He faces several charges after the incident.

Kelvin, The Independent reported on May 16. "When I thought more about it, I realized that no one else has this name," she said. "It became unique. Now we think it is better than Kevin." [The Independent, 5/16/2018]

Through the generations, Lawrance’s commitment to its customers hasn’t wavered. “We have always been committed to providing our customers with the biggest selection of top brands and styles,” Haimsohn said. “Whether you are looking to redesign your bedroom, dining room, living room, family room, media room or home office, we are here to help you design

Easy Way Out Like any resourceful mom, Johanna Giselhall Sandstrom of Kyrkhult, Sweden, made lemonade out of lemons after she discovered a spelling error in her newly acquired tattoo. Sandstrom had asked the tattoo artist to entwine the names of her two children, Nova and Kevin, on her arm, and it wasn't until she arrived home that she realized the tattoo read "Kelvin" instead of "Kevin." "My heart stopped and I thought I was going to faint," Sandstrom told local newspaper Blekinge Lans Tidning. Removing the tattoo would require multiple treatments, she learned, so Sandstrom decided instead to change her 2-year-old son's name to

Weird Science For two years, Kendra Jackson of Omaha, Nebraska, "had a box of Puffs ... everywhere I went," due to constant sneezing, coughing and nose-blowing that started after she hit her face on the dashboard during a car accident in 2013, she told KETV. Multiple doctors told her allergies were the cause, but eventually she was diagnosed with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak -- her brain fluid was leaking into her nasal cavity at the rate of about a half-pint a day. In early May, Nebraska Medicine rhinologist Dr. Christie Barnes plugged the small hole between Jackson's skull and nostrils with her own fatty tissue, giving Jackson the relief she had been seeking for years. [KETV, 5/10/2018] Awwwwww .... Six baby squirrels in Elkhorn, Nebraska, found themselves in a sticky situation when their tails became tangled in tree sap and knotted together in their nest. When a man noticed what looked like a six-headed squirrely cluster moving around in a tree, wildlife expert Laura Stastny, executive director of Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, got the call. Stastny told the Omaha World-Herald that her group sees a case like this every year or so. She covered the squirrels with a towel to calm them and then snipped the fur that held them together. [Omaha World-Herald, 5/17/2018]

the homes and the people here are a great fit for our style of furniture.” “You will discover incredible furniture from around the world created by award-winning designers,” Haimsohn said. “We are very particular about the companies we work with. We make every effort to curate a unique collection of products, much of which is made here in the U.S. and a lot out of Europe, especially Italy.” It isn’t just the furnishings that Haimsohn is proud of. “We also have a team of friendly and knowledgeable Design Consultants, and our customers appreciate that,” he said. A small but happy team — only about 25 employees between the two locations — Lawrance employees’ love for their jobs is evident. “We have a number of long-term employees, many who have been with us for 10 to 15 years or more and one gentleman who has been with us in Encinitas since we opened,” Haimsohn said. Haimsohn recognizes

the importance of treating employees well. “At the end of the day, it isn’t just our great selection or quality pieces that keep our customers coming back, it’s the service,” he said. “I have learned that the best way to make sure your customers are treated well is to treat your employees well.” Lawrance’s commitment to its customers is evident in its offer of complimentary in-home design consultations. “Our team will help make your decisions about color, style and placement easy and affordable,” Haimsohn said. “The design plans will help you to fully visualize how your room’s color, flow, furniture and accessories will work together to create a harmonious environment before you buy anything. Count on us to help you turn your home into a modern, tasteful and comfortable space.” Lawrance Contemporary Furniture’s new showroom is located at 172 N. El Camino Real in Encinitas.

Let Me Get My Checkbook The owner of a 15,000-square-foot condo on the 45th floor of the swanky Atelier building in Manhattan is offering the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom property for sale -- for $85 million, according to WNBC. It features the expected appointments -- marble bathrooms, granite kitchen with stainless steel appliances -- but the steep price tag also includes some extras, such as two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, a Lamborghini, courtside season tickets to the Brooklyn Nets, a summer mansion in the Hamptons, a million-dollar yacht, live-in butler service and ... oh yeah, two tickets for a trip to outer space.

two Dallas high schools in an apparent effort to relive his basketball career. Gilstrap-Portley was charged with posing as a 17-year-old student and Hurricane Harvey evacuee so that he could play high school basketball. As Dallas schools welcomed students displaced by the hurricane, Gilstrap-Portley first enrolled at Skyline High School and then at Hillcrest High School, where he was a star on the team (and dated a 14-yearold girl). In fact, high school coaches voted him offensive player of the year. The Dallas Morning News reported that a former coach spotted him at a tournament and alerted Hillcrest's coach that he had graduated "a time ago." [Dallas Morning News, 5/16/2018]

Bright Ideas -- A 47-year-old woman from Adrian, Michigan, lost her job after she brought laxative-laced brownies to a co-worker's going-away party on May 3. Another employee of MMI Engineered Solutions in Saline tipped off company officials, who called police. The baker initially denied putting anything in the brownies, but came clean after being told the brownies could be forensically tested. Saline Police Chief Jerrod Hart told the Ann Arbor News there had been tension between the baker and the guest of honor, but the nature of the spat was not clear. "A lot of times you see it in movies or TV shows where someone tries to do this or play a joke, but it's very serious," Hart said. "It's a criminal act." The woman, however, was not charged, since no one ate the treats. [Ann Arbor News, 5/15/2018] -- Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley, 25, was arrested on May 11 in Dallas after scamming his way into

Awesome! Matthew and Maria Colonna-Emanuel of Staten Island knew about the silver box partially buried near some trees in their yard for years; they thought it was a cable box. But when they decided to replace the trees, they discovered the box was a safe -- and it was full of treasure. In early May, the Emanuels found thousands of dollars, along with "jewelry, diamonds, engagement rings ..." said Matthew Emanuel. "It was stunning." They also found an address, which linked them to nearby neighbors. The New York Police Department told CBS New York that indeed, the Emanuels' neighbors were robbed in 2011 of a safe with items totaling about $52,000. The couple returned the safe and its contents to the crime victims, who were thrilled. "It wasn't even a question," said Maria Colonna-Emanuel. "It wasn't ours." [CBS New York, 5/14/2018]

he tasting of fine wine is really a celebration of life, especially when it’s accompanied by flavorful food that enhances the event. Add special friends to the ingredients and you have a memory that can last a lifetime. A fun set of “guidelines” based on the letter S made a lot of sense to me when I first began to realize that life in the world of wine can be so enhanced by following the gentle road laid out for us by the beautiful curves of the letter S. Let’s begin this odyssey with our first consideration, that of sight. Hopefully you have chosen a wine glass of thin, long stemmed beauty (I recommend Riedel glasses) that actually can improve aroma and taste. Capacity of most of the fine wine glasses range from 12 ounces to 18 ounces. This sets the stage for our preferred wine in our test tasting, a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 vintage. After some aerating, allowing the wine to “breathe,” by opening it, you are ready to pour about three to four ounces of wine into your glass, and the start of your journey of sight. Here, you examine the wine, get a good look at it for clarity and density. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon. You are viewing from the top of the glass. It should be a deep rich pool of dark red purity. If it’s hazy, you detect a twig or other foreign matter like sediment, it’s a failure and should not be consumed. You should be viewing a portrait with rich color and texture. The next step is to swirl the wine, to prepare the wine for the next important phase, the sniff and smell. The swirl is affected by holding the stem tightly and moving the glass in a sharp, tight circle clockwise or counter-clockwise, but not so hard the wine spills over the side. You are mixing oxygen with the wine to aerate the contents, releasing aromas

that are trapped in the wine. At the same time, the wine’s surface area on the inside of the glass is displaying “legs” or residue of evaporating alcohol. If the lines are thick then you have a high degree of alcohol in this body of wine, traditionally about 14 percent in Cabernets. By law, a wine’s label will reveal its alcoholic content. The smell or sniff of the wine is called the “bouquet,” a true expression since, like flowers, only the best grapes are bundled into a bottle bouquet for family and friends. I recommend smelling the wine several times to fill your palate with the aroma of the wine. The best technique is to get your nose down into the glass close to the wine. Take short, deep inhaling breathes and think about what you are smelling. Young wines smell more fruity, while older vintage wines with time in the bottle smell more like the earth and minerals. A strong scent can take its place among the better perfumes. Don’t analyze too much, just revel in the sensation. Now it’s time to Sip and Swallow, our final two S’s, a most enjoyable climax to this five-part harmony of wine, to discover the wines you really love. After the sip, but before the swallow, let the wine linger on your palate and tongue. We have many taste buds. Let
