hind them in fourth and fifth, respectively. The danger for Republicans, according to many of the party’s delegates, is that if a Republican gubernatorial candidate is not on the November ballot, it could hinder GOP turnout for the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives and down-ballot elections at the state and local levels. “It's absolutely necessary that we as a party are united around the top race in the state,” Los An-

SOLANA BEACH — With the county’s first community choice aggregation program set to launch in a few weeks, Solana Beach residents should have received their first enrollment notices, which provide information, rates and an initial opportunity to opt out. As of June 1, Solana Energy Alliance, or SEA, will be the default energy provider for San Diego’s second smallest city. Under community choice aggregation — considered an effective way to reach state-mandated greenhouse gas emission reductions — customers will receive one bill from San Diego Gas & Electric Co., which will continue to deliver power, maintain the grid and provide customer and field services. SEA will offer two power options. SEA Choice, the most cost-effective rate, is made up of 50 percent renewable and 75 percent greenhouse-gas-free energy. SEA Green is 100 percent renewable at a slightly higher cost. State law mandates that community choice aggregation be an automatic opt-in program. However, customers can opt out and remain with SDG&E without penalty between now and 60 days after SEA launches.

RSF gubernatorial hopeful fails to win GOP backing By City News Service

REGION — Mail-in ballots are beginning to go out to voters ahead of California's June 5 primary election, but GOP voters may have a tough time choosing whom to back after delegates failed to endorse a gubernatorial candidate at the California Republic Party's state convention in San Diego over the weekend. Rancho Santa Fe businessman John Cox and Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach, were vying for the party’s endorsement for governor, but neither earned

Cox falls short of 60 percent threshold needed for party endorsement the 60 percent of votes needed. Cox received 55.3 percent, Allen received 40.5 percent and 4.1 percent of delegates chose to endorse neither candidate. Primary voting for governor will see all candidates from all parties on the same ballot, with the top two vote-getters facing off in November, regardless of their party affiliation.

California’s Democrats also failed to endorse a candidate for governor at their convention in February, but Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom holds a wide lead over all rivals in most polls. Cox and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat, are polling close together in second and third, with state Treasurer John Chiang and Allen polling a little ways be-

Bags & Baubles fundraiser for pets draws large crowd By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The eighth Annual Bags & Baubles fundraiser to support the FACE Foundation attracted more than 400 guests on April 29 at a private estate in Rancho Santa Fe. Attendees had the opportunity to peruse and bid on select handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, accessories, and more. The items — both new and “gently loved” — were donated by individuals and businesses. While the final numbers have yet to be tallied, Danae Davis, executive director of the FACE Foundation, said the fundraiser raises more than $125,000 for local pets and families.

We are grateful to everyone who attended to help fundraise for our mission to save pets and help families.” The FACE Foundation, headquartered in San Diego County, provides funds to pet parents who need financial assistance so that their pets can have a one-time, life-saving surgery. The goal is that pet parents never have to make the painful decision of euthanasia based on economics. Since its TURN TO BAGS & BAUBLES ON 7

‘Browse, Brunch and Buy’ raises money for Breast Cancer Angels By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Breast cancer is never diagnosed at a good time. These were the words spoken by three-year breast cancer survivor Laurie Ng at “Browse, Brunch and Buy,” a breast cancer fundraiser for Breast Cancer Angels. The nonprofit provides financial support to women and men undergoing treatment and Ng was one of those recipients. On April 28, guests arrived at the Santaluz Club to shop for a cause while enjoying an afternoon of scrumptious hors d'oeuvres and paired wines. More than $5,000 was raised for San Diegans needing financial assistance who are undergoing breast cancer treatments. Breast Cancer Angels helps more than 500 patients every year residing in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange counties. Co-chairing the event were Rancho Santa Fe residents Holli Lienau and Adrienne Falzon. Lienau also serves as board treasurer of Breast Cancer Angels. Generous vendors for the day donated 20 percent of their proceeds to Breast Cancer Angels. Money raised in San Diego stays in the area to help San Diegans in need. Both Lienau and Falzon took center stage thanking guests for their support. Following was Debra Stroman, executive director of Breast Cancer Angels, who said a few words about the organization and welcomed Ng to share her story. “For me, the timing of my diagnosis could have never been worse,” she said. Ng said she and her husband did everything right to plan for their future.

Breast cancer survivor Laurie Ng shared how Breast Cancer Angels offered help when she needed it.

“We had a nice life with a nice dream, and we worked hard, but life hit,” she said. The couple faced financial difficulties after a job layoff. However, things began to turn for the better. And then life hit hard again, Ng said. At 36, during a breast self-exam, she noticed something new. “Within three days, I had been diagnosed with Stage 3 ductal carcinoma,” Ng said. She underwent rounds of chemotherapy, bilateral mastectomy, reconstruction and radiation. “My daughter had just turned 5 and life was very, very tough,” she said. “I had to quit my job mostly because I was nauseous all day.

I was too tired. I would fall asleep and I had chemo brain so bad that I would forget people’s names in my family. It was horrible.” Now they were a single income family. “Without me working, bills piled up,” she said. “We prioritized those, but in doing so we had nothing left for necessities.” Ng pointed out that she did have good health insurance and excellent doctors. At an appointment, one of her doctors wanted to know if she had a financial need after her diagnosis. Ng admitted she did. And then came Breast Cancer Angels. “My doctor filled out an application, and within a few days, I had a gift card for Target,” she said. “It was exactly what we needed. I was able to buy groceries, toiletries, over-the-counter medications and vitamins I needed for my treatments.” Over the months, Ng received a few more of those gift cards and she was so thankful for them. Money was tight during Christmastime, but Breast Cancer Angels sent enough gift cards so that Ng could provide her girl with a special Christmas and memorable holiday dinner. Now, three-and-a-half years cancer-free and free from cancer treatment, Ng’s energy is coming back, and she has a job that she loves. “I really want to encourage and ensure you that support in this organization helps those who really need the support,” Ng said. “I personally want to thank those who donated that made the personal impact on me and my family.” To learn more about Breast Cancer Angles, visit www.breast- Event co-chairs Adrienne Falzon and Holli Lienau.

Janus decision could change California politics


Voters get say on housing plan


have great news to share this week. Encinitas residents will get to vote on the latest version of a housing plan in this November’s election. This may not seem like news, but actually it is. This week, a Vista superior court judge agreed with the city’s position that Encinitas voters should have another shot at passing a housing plan, instead of the city being forced by lawsuits to adopt the plan rejected by the voters in the last election, or being forced to halt development permits until we have a compliant housing plan. The court wisely postponed discussion of those forced remedies — ­ called injunctive relief — until after the voters have their say in November. Although Encinitas hasn’t had a state-approved housing plan for multiple decades, the voters have only rejected one single plan, in 2016. Superior Court Judge Ronald Frazier narrowed in on this. He pointedly and rhetorically asked one of the plaintiffs, “Are there cases that say, “only one bite at the apple and that’s it?” He knew the answer, stating that he had closely read the case law. He didn’t indicate how many “bites at the apple” he would give Encinitas. He did go on to ask, “If this (housing plan) doesn’t pass, the question is at what point have you had enough time?” One of the plaintiff’s attorneys muttered “36 years” un-

mayor’s minute catherine blakespear der his breath, but the judge ignored this. We clearly have our work cut out for us. The court’s decision is the best possible development for Encinitas, given the reality of our situation. The three parties suing Encinitas and the city itself all agree that we are not compliant with state housing laws. But we are diligently working on it, and we are making tangible progress. We have sent a plan for upzoning more than 1,400 units to the state housing regulators for review. We’ve adopted a less restrictive accessory unit policy, waiving all city fees and streamlining the process for residents to build more affordable granny flats. We have a density bonus ordinance that has been recently updated. And we are actively pursuing sites for purchase or swap to build deed-restricted affordable housing. The initiative process that established the voters right to weigh in on upzoning — called Prop. A in 2013 when it passed — has become a critical part of Encinitas’ voting heritage. As our attorney Dolores Dolton said, “Implicit in the right to vote, is the right to say no. The process should be allowed to

finish.” The court appeared concerned that the city might not make the required deadlines and set a status conference for August 17, which is shortly after the deadline for the housing plan to make the November ballot. He also set a status conference for November 13th, the week after the election. The state legislature has made providing more housing a top state priority. The growing homelessness epidemic, which fundamentally is about people not having homes, coupled with the affordability crisis, has led the legislature to enact increasingly strict laws requiring cities to provide more housing. More than a dozen new housing laws took effect just five months ago, and one of them requires that Encinitas upzone vacant property for higher density housing. The rationale behind this is that vacant land is more likely to be developed in the short term. The properties must be upzoned for higher density because higher density homes are smaller and therefore naturally more affordable. We have been working very hard to come up with a plan that the voters can support. I remain hopeful that this November we’ll see a positive result, and we’ll avoid having a solution forced upon us. ­ atherine Blakespear C can be reached at cblakespear@encinitasca.gov.

U.S. Rep.

ew California primary elections in non-presidential election years have been so anticipated as the one that starts soon, with millions of mail-in ballots arriving in mailboxes long before the official June 5 Election Day. This vote will yield clues about who will replace Gov. Jerry Brown and begin a new era in state politics. It could also give strong inklings about whether Dianne Feinstein’s long tenure in the U.S. Senate will continue. But another June event may prove even more important to the future of California’s public affairs. This will come about mid-month, when the U.S. Supreme Court is due to deliver a decision in the landmark Illinois case of Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The case gets its name from Mark Janus, a child-support specialist with his state’s child welfare agency who is challenging the right of AFSCME, a huge public employee union, to collect money from workers who don’t share its political views and are not union members. This case echoes the 2016 California case of Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, where Anaheim elementary school teacher Rebecca Friedrichs challenged the CTA’s right to collect money from her. If Janus wins, politics and civic life in California could change dramatically. For decades, public employee unions have been a driving force in this state’s politics, financially and in providing campaign manpower. They are one big reason for the Democratic dominance in virtually all aspects of state government. Unions also have

worker protections, environmental regulations and even puppy mill laws could be undermined. This irresponsible legislation undermines the progress that has been made for animal welfare. Please urge Rep. Darrell Issa and all of Congress to reject this amendment. Gail Prizzi Vista

Comedy Night raises $15,000 for United Cerebral Palsy By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The third annual Comedy Night on April 28 not only provided laughs from top comics, but it also raised $15,000 for United Cerebral Palsy Association of San Diego County. Comedians for the evening at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe were Steve Kelley, Greg Otto and Allan Havey. Russ T. Nailz was once again the evening’s emcee. A total of 150 guests took part in the evening. Nailz, a Fairbanks Ranch resident, worked for United Cerebral Palsy Association for nearly 30 years as host and emcee for their galas and golf tournaments. “We go back many years,” Nailz said. “I just love the Carucci brothers.” David Carucci serves as the executive director of the United Cerebral Palsy Association of San Diego County whereas his brother, Marc, is the director of fund development. According to Marc Carucci, there was lots of laughter and fun. “The people that attended were very much in a giving spirit,” Marc Carucci said. “On behalf of UCP, I’d like to thank Russ T. Nailz, Nina Detrow and Michele Surrell of the Fairbanks Ranch CC for making this happen.” Nailz championed the event and, in fact, came up with the idea. What attract-

ed Nailz to the organization was that the money raised in San Diego goes to support San Diegans. “I always try to help in any way that I think I can do my best work, and that’s anywhere from auctioneering, emcee and standup comedy,” Nailz said. According to Nailz, the Annual Comedy Night at Fairbanks Ranch is one of the best shows he has been involved with as a comedian for 30 years. “We had three topflight standup comedians,”

Nailz joked. “That’s why I’m not doing any standup. Allan, Greg, and Steve — each one of them can be a standalone headliner for a comedy club. In fact, they were when I was working at comedy clubs in the early 1980s.” Nailz pointed how accommodating the team at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club was in preparations for the fundraiser regarding a great dinner, fantastic venue and topnotch service. Nailz called on friends

in the entertainment biz for lighting, sound and staging. They also had a brick wall staging backdrop. “That brick wall gives a comedy club feel which makes a lot of people over 40 remember the days of the Comedy Store in La Jolla or The Improv in Pacific Beach,” Nailz said. “There were only two comedy clubs in town back then.” In addition to some comic relief, guests also had the opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items.

According to David Carucci, United Cerebral Palsy Association of San Diego was founded in 1958 by parents of children with cerebral palsy. “Since that time, we have served the San Diego community with a variety of programs and services for 60 years,” David Carucci said. “The mission of United Cerebral Palsy Association of San Diego County is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people affected by cerebral palsy and other disabilities.” Carucci explained that United Cerebral Palsy Association of San Diego exists to provide services, information, advocacy and support to people with disabilities of all ages and their families. “We are a focal point for information on cerebral palsy and related services at a local level,” he said. “We are also an affiliate of our national organization, UCPA, Inc., located in Washington, D.C.” David Carucci said proceeds from the event will be put to work immediately to help fund vital program services offered by United Cerebral Palsy Association to persons with cerebral palsy and other disabilities and their families.

Police make arrest in cold case killing

Escondido man fatally stabbed in 1986 By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Police Department held up its end of a promise to the family of Richard Finney it would find the 75-year-old’s killer. On April 23, Chief Craig Carter announced the arrest of Nathan Eugene Mathis, 62, of Ontario, for stabbing Finney 31 times on Nov. 13, 1986, at his apartment on 326 E. Mission Ave. Through improved technology, fingerprints and DNA, the cold case team of a retired Escondido Police detective and former FBI agent and the crime lab cracked the case. “That’s the best part of this job is when you have a family that recognizes that you don’t give up,” Carter said. “What we were able to get back in 1986 was two different blood types … it wasn’t enough to get a hit.” The scene, he added, was gruesome but enough evidence was preserved at the scene to allow for Mathis to be arrested 32 years later. Carter said Mathis was arrested at his Ontario apartment on April 18 and appeared April 20 for his arraignment. He was living with his wife and two grandchildren. According to Carter, Mathis showed no emotion during the arrest and was transported to the Vista Jail where he is being held on $3 million bond. Police also believe two knives were used in the murder. The break came when now-retired fingerprint expert Cassuandra Barnes was able to photograph and enhance original crime scene photos of a fingerprint on a bathroom sink faucet, Carter said. From there, the DNA and fingerprint were uploaded into national databases. The fingerprint, which



geles County delegate Karen Roseberry said as she unsuccessfully urged the party to reconsider the endorsement vote, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Every down-ticket race is counting on this.” A spokesman for Cox’s campaign said the wealthy businessman is now the only Republican with enough funding to challenge the Democrats, according to the Times and San Diego Union-Tribune. Allen — who said he was “ecstatic” Cox failed to claim an endorsement win despite his wealth — said he believes he can still challenge for a top-two finish next month. He said he is sending out more than 13 million mailers to invigorate the state’s GOP voters. The three-day convention wrapped up May 6 at the Sheraton San Di-

was pulled in 2016, unveiled Mathis, who spent much of his career as a security officer. DNA testing, though, caused a delay before the police department was able to confirm the identity of Mathis to make the arrest with the assistance of Fontana and Ontario police. At the time of the murder, Carter said it is believed Mathis was living in Escondido. He also spent time in Texas, the chief added. As for a motive, Carter said the department is withholding to avoid jeopardizing the case for the San Diego County District Attorney’s office. Finney is survived by some family including three grandchildren. “It means everything to us that you continually worked the case for 32 years. I don’t know how to repay someone for their efforts other than I will never forget what you did for our family,” said Finney’s granddaughter, Catherine Turi Hollis. Retired Escondido detective Chuck Gaylor and retired FBI agent Normal Wight are the two former law enforcement officials who reopened the case in 2007. Gaylor said he relayed to Finney’s family the team would do whatever they could to bring the killer to justice. Gaylor was on duty on Nov. 11, 1986, although he was a sergeant in the patrol unit. Still, he said it was his duty in 2007 to work for victims and their families in cold cases, specifically Finney’s murder. “We made a promise to that family several years ago that we would do everything we could within this police department … to solve the brutal slaying of their 75-year-old grandfather,” Gaylor said. ego Hotel & Marina in the Midway District, with delegates voting to endorse retired Judge Steven Bailey for attorney general, Cole Harris for lieutenant governor and Mark Meuser for secretary of state. But in another blow to the party, there were no candidates eligible for endorsement in the U.S. Senate race to challenge Dianne Feinstein. Patrick Little, a neo-Nazi who has praised Adolf Hitler and has polled second behind Feinstein in recent polls, was barred from the convention May 5 when he tried to register. State Republican leaders said there was no room for Little's anti-Semitic views in their party. State GOP leaders have distanced themselves from Little, saying they have no records of him ever serving as a delegate and he has no relationship to the state Republican party.

City preparing to move into new home By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — With construction wrapping up on the civic center complex, staff will begin moving into the new facility over Memorial Day weekend. As a result, the temporary City Hall location on Jimmy Durante Boulevard will close May 24 at noon. Contacting the city will be difficult until at least the following day since the phone system will be shut down for the move. Officials are encouraging residents to conduct any necessary work before that time. The city will reopen for business at 1 p.m. May 29 in the previous site at 1050 Camino del Mar. Meanwhile, planning is underway for the official dedication ceremony, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. June


In addition to the traditional ribbon cutting, the event will include self-guided tours of the new facility (with information docents available), an activity corner for young attendees hosted by the Del Mar Foundation and Del Mar Historical Society, a photo booth and food catered by a local Del Mar eatery. The $17.8 million project will feature an 8,855-square-foot City Hall for administrative functions, a 3,104-square-foot Town Hall with seating for up to 250 people and 140 parking stalls in a partially below-grade structure and surface lot. It also includes a 15,000-squarefoot public plaza and 934-square-foot breezeway. Construction began in mid-2016. Despite some unexpected construction

and weather delays, the project is set to come in on time and within budget. The previous facility — built in the 1920s for Del Mar’s first public school, which later became St. James Academy — was the seat of city government since the mid-1970s. When the city bought the building more than three decades ago the intent was to use it as a temporary home for City Hall. Through the years it began to deteriorate, to the point where only half could be occupied because of safety reasons, including water leaks and environmental hazards. It had no indoor bathrooms, limited space for the public to do business and cramped space for employees. The new facility will be available for public events, but on a limited basis for the first year.

inception in 2008, the FACE Foundation has saved more than 2,000 family pets. Thanks to generous sponsors and underwriters, the FACE Foundation spends a minimal amount of money for hosting the Bags & Baubles event. On the scene was Lulu, the Bags & Baubles mascot and honorary canine chair, and her pet parent Sharon Howland. The duo walked around and was greeted by many wanting to know about Lulu’s story. The now 14-year-old Dachshund had a life-saving surgery on her cervical spine several years

ago which was funded by the foundation. Lulu, dressed to impress in pink, was a magnet for dog lovers. “This is just a wonderful day,” said Howland, holding Lulu. Every year, the donations of designer handbags, jewelry and sunglasses increases. Also, opportunity drawings for baskets with themes such as Kate Spade and Tory Burch were highly sought. Handbags ranged from vintage, designer vegan and crossbody bags to shoulder bags, clutch, wallets, handle bags and evening bags. If someone decided an item was a must-have, they had

the opportunity to use a “buy it now” feature. Katrina O’Donnell once again created animal topiary floral designs. Like in previous years, they were all purchased soon after the event kickoff. Food and drink for the day were provided by Hooters, Tofurky, Cravory Cookies, Jimbo’s, BK Cellars, Sparkletts, Café Gratitude, MGN, Coomber Family Wines, Jenny Wenny Cakes, Mama Neal’s Cookies, Opera, Go Max Go and Sima’s Gourmet Catering.

RSF conference educates seniors on healthy aging By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center’s fourth annual Healthy Aging Conference opened its doors at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club on April 27. The sold-out event educated attendees on a variety of topic matters to enhance the lives of seniors. Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center Executive Director Terrie Litwin said the day was an educational event for area seniors featuring speakers who are experts in the field of aging. The afternoon also served as an opportunity for guests to become acquainted with local senior service providers. A total of five guest

speakers took part in the day. The first was the bestselling author and Holocaust survivor Edith Eger, Ph.D., whose topic was The Celebration of Life. Next up was Douglas Ziedonis, MD, who spoke on Spirituality and Aging. Following this, bestselling author and columnist Richard Lederer, Ph.D., took center stage for his lecture The Gift of Age. After the first three guest speakers, attendees broke away for lunch. Following the meal, everyone returned to the conference hearing the clinical professor of medicine at UCSD Joseph Weiss, MD, who spoke about World Full of Wonder. The last speaker of the day

was Lisa Eyler, Ph.D., whose topic was Healthy Brain Aging. Lizzy Weiss, the assistant director at The Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center, said The Healthy Aging Conference never ceases to amaze her with much joy the event brings to so many seniors and local community members. “One memory that particularly comes to mind this year is a woman sharing her personal story with the audience after just having lost her husband a little less than a month ago,” she said. “The share was prompted by a personal poem Dr. Douglas Ziedonis wrote after his mother passed. He prefaced that re-

citing this poem is something he never does, but he was inspired to do so from listening to our previous speaker, Edith Eger, Ph.D. Dr. Eger is memorable in her own right for being one of the most resilient women I know.” Weiss said the emotion and the exchange between the woman in the audience and Ziedonis were palpable. “I could instantly see the shift and the emotion of the room turn to one of empathy and compassion for this woman who has just gone through one of the hardest and inevitable factors of life … death,” Weiss said. “It’s a concept all too familiar for many in the room, and to have this event also be a

source of support and community is one of the greatest gifts I can think of.” In between guest speakers, attendees had the opportunity to visit event sponsor tables. Title Sponsors were Casa Aldea Senior Living and San Diego Sleep Therapy. Silver Sponsors included Belmont Village Senior Living and La Costa Glen. The Bronze Sponsors consisted of ActivCare Living, At Home Nursing Care, Brookdale Senior Living, Comfort Keepers, Care Placement, La Vida Del Mar, OneWest Bank, Olivenhain Guest Home, Palma de la Reina, Rancho Santa Fe Audiology, Seacrest Village Retirement Communities, Vi at La Jolla Village,

Windward Life Care, The Estate Planning and Legacy Law Center. “The Healthy Aging Conference would not exist without our sponsors, not to mention the time our speakers donate to be available for this daylong event, and the volunteers that are involved in helping throughout the day,” Weiss said. Each of these moving parts contributes to the whole of creating a memorable and inspirational day for our seniors along with providing them the valuable information of services our sponsors provide. Each sponsor is a company the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center believes in and appreciates.”

Those who opt out more than 60 days after SEA service starts will be charged a processing fee by SDG&E and will not have the option to return to SEA for one year. SEA will not charge a termination fee. SDG&E will charge customers authorized fees for delivering power to homes or businesses and for providing other services. Those components of the electric bill are the same whether customers buy electricity from SEA or SDG&E. SEA customers will continue to receive a single monthly bill from SDG&E that includes all applicable electric charges, including SEA’s power generation fees. SDG&E will also charge SEA customers a power charge indifference adjustment, referred to as PCIA, and a franchise fee surcharge, both of which are calculated based on the number of kilowatt hours used each month. The PCIA is intended to ensure that customers who remain with SDG&E are not negatively impacted by customers moving to SEA. The PCIA is currently 1 cent to just under 2 cents per kilowatt hour.

According to the current schedule, SEA Choice customers will see about a 3 percent reduction in their monthly energy bills. Additionally, solar users will receive a higher credit compensation. While the program was being developed, most people who weighed in either during public hearings or via email supported CCA. Some, however, were skeptical, including former Mayor Ginger Marshall. She said she was opposed when the city approved the program last year because of concerns and unanswered questions about costs and regulatory processes. She said she would prefer to wait until Solana Beach could join with other nearby cities who are currently considering the option, including Del Mar, Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside. Council members said they have not ruled out the possibility of partnering with those or other cities in the future. For more information, visit www.SolanaEnergyAlliance.org.

Sewing endeavors anything but seamless small talk jean gillette


am way too proud of myself. I actually completed a pillowcase. I managed to sew three straight seams … well, straight enough, and made a not-unattractive, quite useable pillowcase. I know. Big whoop — but for me, this was like planting a flag atop a very large mountain. I need to admit that the simple pillowcase probably took me an hour and a

half. Most seamsters could whip in up in minutes, but most of them aren’t working with my mother’s sewing machine. It is a beautiful, Swedish Husqvarna that was a slick, top-of-the-line creature 60 years ago. I can’t bear to part with it. But that glamorous queen of a machine is now an infuriating, temperamental diva. Trying to get the seam width, length and thread tension right very nearly knocks me to my knees every time. The really sad thing is I still don’t know precisely what I did that made it finally work. I swear I lined up the same settings a dozen times with no result, only to have it suddenly sew like a

champ. This machine knows I am a rookie wannabe and we have a throw down every time I get brave enough to use it. The vicious habit of this prima donna machine is it will go all wonky again when I go back in a month, to sew that same stitch, having not touched any part of it. Granted, I am not sewing the beautiful creations that my mother did, but I should get some respect simply because I am willing to tackle the occasional pillowcase. Apparently, this machine doesn’t think so. I even had an old, pro sewing machine expert give it a tune-up when I could not get it to work. He practical-

ly drooled when he saw it, sang its praises, and told me it was in perfect shape, then swiftly sewed a perfect test seam. He even offered to buy it. I think it heard him and is now punishing me for not taking the offer. I will foolishly try again when I split a seam or want to create another terribly complex pillowcase. I approach it with caution, though. Maybe I need to learn to whisper sweet words in Swedish. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer, whose children would have worn pillowcases, had it been up to her sewing skills. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

Coastal Rail Trail work begins in Encinitas ENCINITAS — Construction broke ground April 30 on a 1.3-mile segment of the Coastal Rail Trail bikeway in Encinitas, with crews beginning preliminary construction activities along San Elijo Avenue in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Preliminary construction activities include removing vegetation, verifying underground utilities and installing fencing around environmentally sensitive areas. This segment of bikeway will link Cardiff-by-theSea with downtown Encinitas. The Encinitas segment of the bikeway is a component of the 44-mile Coastal Rail Trail, a bike route that will run from the city of Oceanside to downtown San Diego, filling the bike connectivity gaps in Encinitas. During construction, nearby residents and busi-

nesses can expect intermittent construction noise and dust. In early May, parking along the bluff will be temporarily removed along San Elijo Avenue between Santa Fe Drive and Montgomery Avenue, and there will be intermittent traffic delays. Pedestrians and bicyclists can expect temporary trail closures. Since 2013, the project has been presented at community meetings, various Encinitas committees, and to the Encinitas City Council as it progressed through planning stages. In May 2017, the California Coastal Commission voted to approve the project’s eastern alignment, which will parallel the west side of San Elijo Avenue along the coastal rail line from Chesterfield Drive to Santa Fe Drive. The $10 million bike project is part of Build

NCC, a collaborative effort between the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and Caltrans District 11. It is comprised of three primary focus areas – Interstate 5 Express Lanes Project, coastal rail and transit enhancements, and environmental protection and coastal access improvements. “The Encinitas segment of the Coastal Rail Trail has been in the works for some time and we’re glad construction began,” said SANDAG Chairman and Del Mar City Councilmember Terry Sinnott. “The project will give people more travel choices to many of the city’s most frequented areas.” The bikeway will connect community assets, including the Encinitas Coaster Station, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, the Santa Fe Drive rail

undercrossing, Swami’s Seaside Park, George Berkich Park, Cardiff School, San Elijo and Cardiff state beaches, Harbaugh Seaside Parkway, downtown Cardiff-by-the-Sea and Glen Park. Construction on the Encinitas segment of the Coastal Rail Trail is expected to be complete in early 2019, at about the same time that the rail San Elijo Lagoon Double Track Project is anticipated to be completed. Design, engineering, and construction of the Coastal Rail Trail segments are funded by federal, state, and local funds, including the regional TransNet half-cent sales tax for transportation administered by SANDAG. Build NCC is a joint project of Caltrans, SANDAG, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.


What is a Mother? She’s somebody to confide in...her trust is always there. She’s somebody who is very special; who deserves so much. She’s a tear and a smile. She’s a warm and loving touch. She is always there to listen and to hear my point of view. She’ll give me her suggestions without telling me what to do. She gave her life in raising me and helping me to grow. She’s been there through the happy times and comforts me when I’m feeling low. She makes sure I know I am special and important to her. She was there through wet diapers, skinned knees, dates, first kisses, and the vows of love, “I DO.” She’s my best friend as well as MOM. We’ve cried, we’ve laughed, we’ve hugged.

Council OKs La Colonia skatepark bid By Bianca Kaplanek

A few years ago, a group of residents successfully lobbied the city to complete another planned element — an honor courtyard for veterans — separately from the major project. Skateboarders followed suit. SITE Design, which has designed skateparks worldwide, held two workshops that allowed skaters to design their ideal park. Based on their input, the park will include elements such as a bowl pocket, three-stair set with rails, China bank, stamped-brick quarter-pipe, pole jam and four-stair set with “Hubba” ledges.

The linear, plaza-style nature will allow for greater use by all-level skaters, according to the designers. PUB Construction Inc., which submitted a $1.2 million bid, protested the award in a letter dated April 6 that noted California Skateparks and SITE Design are owned by the same person, thereby giving California Skateparks an advantage over other bidders. City Engineer Mo Sammak acknowledged the companies are owned by the same person, but “based on the evidence reviewed … City staff has not identified

a basis on which to disqualify” the company. Construction is expected to begin next month and take about nine months to complete. Councilman Peter Zahn said awarding the construction contract “makes a great deal of sense.” “It’s been thoroughly vetted, it looks like, in terms of the bid,” he said. “Relatively, it looks reasonable. It sounds like the funds are all lined up, which is good. “I’m hopeful there will be great sales of the tiles and continued success with the fundraising effort,” he added.

SOLANA BEACH — If all goes as planned, the city’s first skatepark will open at La Colonia Park in about a year. Council members at the April 25 meeting awarded the construction contract to California Skateparks, whose approximately $940,000 bid was the lowest of five received. The estimated $1.1 million project will include skateboarding areas, a small full-court basketball area and an EnergiPlant, a free-standing nanogrid that will provide Wi-Fi, USB ports for charging phones and internet access, additional seating and possibly security cameras. The design also features a donor wall with 3-by-6-inch clear glass subway tiles installed in the shape of a wave. The tiles, which will accommodate up to three lines of text, will recognize individuals or businesses that contribute $500 or more. The initial wall can hold 50 tiles, although more can be added if necessary. Through fundraising efforts, donations, a grant and undesignated capital improvement project reserves, the city can fully fund the project except for the anticipated $25,000 from tile sales. When that money comes in it will replenish the capital improvement fund, City Manager Greg Wade said. Councilman Dave Zito said last year Solana Beach had a “fairly substantial surplus,” so he and his colleagues allocated $500,000 into the CIP fund for potential projects such as the long-planned skatepark. Council members had discussed naming rights for a large donor. Wade said some interest had been expressed but not at a substantially high enough level to warrant such action. A two-phase plan to upgrade La Colonia Community Center and Park approved in 2008 included a skatepark. But the entire project stalled when the funding source was eliminated by Gov. Jerry Brown.

OCEANSIDE — Recognizing the explosive growth in the cybersecurity industry, MiraCosta College is launching a new program this fall that will give students an unprecedented advantage in landing high-demand, high-wage careers. The new two-year Cybersecurity Program, offering both an Associate in Science (AS) degree and Certificate of Achievement (CoA), begins in fall 2018 and is already generating plenty of buzz among students, faculty and local employers. “Our faculty has done such an amazing job with this,” Zhenya Lindstrom, associate dean of Career Education with the School of Career Education at MiraCosta, said. With innovation in the development of curriculum and working with an advisory board, they have created a program that serves a need in the industry. MiraCosta College works to better serve the communities with programs that are reflective of the workforce and lead to gainful employment. Rick Cassoni, a fulltime professor in the Computer Studies and Information Technology (CSIT) department, worked to

At Pennsylvania State University, the Outing Club, founded in 1920, provided students with outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking and camping. But no more. Penn State has announced that after this semester, the university will no longer allow the club to organize student-led trips because it is too dangerous out in the wilderness, according to the offices of Student Affairs and Risk Management. Two other outdoorsy clubs, the Nittany Grotto Caving Club and the Nittany Divers Scuba Club, have also been restricted from club activities outdoors. Michael Lacey, president of the Caving Club, told the Centre Daily Times: "Penn State's just been clamping down really hard on the nature of activities" since the Jerry Sandusky scandal. University spokesperson Lisa Powers said Penn State will offer school-sponsored outdoors trips, but students noted the cost will be much higher. [Centre Daily Times, 4/20/2018]

develop the Cybersecurity Program. MiraCosta is the first community college in the San Diego region to offer such a program. “What is unique about this is that most schools offer management of information systems degrees and computer science degrees, but our Cybersecurity Program is focused on computer networking and security technology outside

of programming and MIS,” he explained. “Our Cybersecurity Program will help prepare students for seven different industry certifications including CompTIA Security+, CySA+, and PenTest+.” Not only is the launch of the program timely, it is also poised to be a boon to the local labor market. Organizations worldwide are expected to spend more

than $100 million in cybersecurity, a 38 percent increase year over year since 2016. In the San Diego region alone, there are more than 4,000 employees working in cybersecurity at more than 100 companies. A preliminary search of cybersecurity opportunities in the region turns up significantly less jobs than are actually available. “There is no single occupa-

Terje Moe Gustavsen, head of the administration, said: "Everyone understands that being in and around roundabouts is a traffic hazard. It may not be so dangerous for someone to be without clothes on the bridge, but drivers can ... completely forget that they are driving." [Reuters, 4/18/2018]

kek, Kyrgyzstan, the mayor has employed a clever way to keep his finger on the pulse of the city. When he goes out, he wears a fake beard so he'll blend in and not be recognized as the capital city's leader.

In Tokyo, women who have qualms about living alone may soon have a new security option. "Man on the Curtain" is a prototype smartphone app that connects to a projector and throws a moving shadow of a man onto a closed window curtain. The shadow man can be doing any of several different activities, such as boxing, karate, vacuuming, playing guitar or getting dressed. Keiichi Nakamura, advertising manager of Leopalace21 Corp., an apartment management company where the idea originated, told Reuters that eventually his company would like to "commercialize it once we add variety, such as releasing a new video every day."

Linus F. Phillip, 30, was shot and killed by Largo police March 23 after he tried to drive away from an officer wanting to search him. As part of their investigation, police said they needed to access and preserve data on Phillip's phone. Legal experts generally agreed the detectives had not broken any laws, but Phillip's girlfriend, Victoria Armstrong, 28, was less forgiving: "Nobody even calling us ... to let us know detectives were coming there at all is very disturbing," she told the Tampa Bay Times. "I'm very skeptical of all funeral homes now." [Tampa Bay Times, 4/21/2018] -- United Press International reports that in Bish-


Over the last two years, Cameron County employee Gilberto Escamilla, 53, of Brownsville, Texas, has been accepting shipments of fajitas worth a total of $1.2 million at the Darrell B. Hester Juvenile Detention Center in Brownsville. The only trouble is, the inmates there aren't served fajitas. Escamilla had been ordering the meat from Labatt Food Service in Harlingen and intercepting it to resell. "It started small and got bigger and out of control," Escamilla told the court, according to The Brownsville Herald. On April 20, he was sentenced to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to theft by a public servant. [The Brownsville Herald, 4/20/2018]

tion that currently reflects this work,” Lindstrom said. “The labor market for cybersecurity emerged so quickly that the federal system hasn’t had a chance to catch up. The demand is largely underestimated. Previously these jobs didn’t exist or only did in specific pockets or specialized industries. That is changing rapidly.” A Cybersecurity degree may also open opportunities beyond the IT sector. MiraCosta students will get tangible, hands-on skills. It is one of the areas that every single organization of any significant size utilizes. Health care, financial institutions, education — many companies need workers with the skills their programs provide. Cassoni is proud of the program, and how it will impact the lives of students. “We are able to give them relevant, in-demand technical skills that are not offered at local public fouryear schools,” he said. “This degree is very accessible to all students no matter their socioeconomic background; it levels the playing field. It does require dedication and a passion for continued learning, as the industry is constantly changing.”

The students are as enthused as the faculty about the launch of the Cybersecurity Program. “Every day I talk with someone who is excited about the program,” Cassoni said. As home to the first program of its kind locally, MiraCosta is also enthusiastic about what the Cybersecurity program means for the community as a whole. “A lot of employers have been looking for IT talent outside of the county,” Lindstrom said. “Part of our mission is to create programs like this that are relevant to the workforce needs of local employers and offer the skills these jobs require.” Enrollment has already opened for the inaugural class of the Cybersecurity Program, and Cassoni urges interested students to learn more about what it can do for them. “We offer best in class instructors with industry certifications, state-ofthe-art labs with advanced computing machines, including virtualization and cloud virtualization and more,” he said.

test when the "borrowed" sample she used tested positive for drugs. "Let me get this straight," Judge Frank Fregiato said in court, according to WTOV-TV. "To avoid the positive test with your own urine, you used someone else's urine, which turned out to be positive also. That's bizarre." [WTOV, 4/23/2018]


Timothy Hill, 67, of Grassington, North Yorkshire, England, having installed a laser jammer in his Range Rover, thought he was outsmarting law enforcement speed cameras. In fact, he was so sure of his scheme that he repeatedly raised his middle finger to the cameras -- sometimes casually, sometimes aggressively -- as he passed. What he didn't realize was that the laser jammer, rather than hiding his identity, was only blocking police from determining his speed, so when they tracked him down, he was charged not with speeding, but with perverting the course of justice. "If you want to attract our attention, repeatedly gesturing at police camera vans with your middle finger while you're driving a distinctive car fitted with a laser jammer is an excellent way to do it," Traffic Constable Andrew Forth told Metro News. Hill pleaded guilty on April 23, and was sentenced to eight months in jail and prohibited from driving for a year. [Metro News, 4/23/2018]

-- On April 23, police officers in Warren, Michigan, responded to a home for a welfare check on 68-yearold George Curtis, whose relatives had become concerned because they hadn't heard from him. Curtis was, indeed, dead -- in fact, WJBK-TV reported, he had been deceased for months, maybe even a year. Also in the home: his girlfriend, who had continued living there with his decaying body, which was laid out in a bed. Police transported the unnamed woman to a hospital for a mental evaluation and are awaiting a report on cause of death from the medical examiner. [WJBK, 4/24/2018] -- Meanwhile, on the South Side of Chicago, police responded to reports of an elderly woman pushing a dead body around the Chatham neighborhood in a shopping cart on April 21, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Officers took the woman to a hospital for a mental evaluation and launched an investigation into the female body, whose age and identity had not been determined at press time.

David Vergari is the winemaker at Thornton, having come to the winery some time ago with his dis-

tinct knowledge of Mediterranean style red wines. When I found out that one of his current 2014 releases was an estate grown Nebbiolo, I broke out in applause for his unique accomplishment. Turns out, it was not only my favorite of the group, John Thornton, the beloved owner of the winery, loves it too ($52). The grape sources from Piedmont, in Italy. It’s used in such legendary wines as Barolo and Barbaresco. This is in keeping with the Temecula trend to southern European wines from such countries as Italy, Spain and southern France. At Thornton, go for the music and the food, but don’t forget to enjoy those fine wines.

San Marcos officials will vote on sending a similar letter May 8. “SB 1151 aligns with the City of Encinitas’ efforts to reduce vehicle emissions by encouraging the use of electric and alternative-fuel vehicles,” Encinitas staff wrote in a report to the council. “This bill supports a regional approach to expand mobility choices and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in support of the region’s and the City of Encinitas’ shared transportation and sustainability goals.” San Marcos spokeswoman Sarah MacDonald said the bill also mirrored the city’s legislative platform, and staff recommends the city to take a “support” position on the bill. The bill would expire in 2029 unless reauthorized by the legislature.

REGION — Cities in North County are rallying behind a bill that would expand the use of neighborhood electric vehicles countywide. The battery-powered vehicles, often resembling motorized golf carts, are currently only allowed on neighborhood streets or streets with a speed limit of 35 miles per hour because of their slow maximum speeds. The San Diego Association of Governments is sponsoring the bill, Senate Bill 1151. Co-authored by State Sen. Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) and State Assemblyman Rocky Chavez (R-Oceanside), the bill would allow any jurisdiction in San Diego County to develop and implement neighborhood electric vehicle transportation plans. By adopting a transportation plan, with the blessing of local law enforcement and SANDAG, cities across the county could expand the streets on which NEVs, as the vehicles are known,

March Penguins with the


ere in the Strait of Magellan, at the bottom of South America where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet, it’s all about the weather. The captain and crew of the Ventus Australis have said repeatedly that if weather conditions aren’t right — and much of the time they aren’t –—we won’t be boarding Zodiac rafts to get an up-close look at some of the 4,000 Magellanic penguins who call Tucker Islets home. But good fortune is with us; winds and waves are conducive to landing at the penguins’ doorstep and the loveable birds don’t disappoint. They waddle and toddle and do their penguin things despite the rafts loaded with bundled-up humans observing them. It’s mid-March and time for teenaged birds to fly the coop – or more accurately, leave the colony. We can identify teen birds because their black-colored bands are not yet distinct. And as far as I can tell, much like their human counterparts, they aren’t going anywhere. Today is the second day of our five-day cruise on the Ventus Australis, a 200-passenger expedition ship that makes repeated voyages around the end of the South American continent. The cruise is part of the Odysseys Unlimited 17-day Patagonian Frontiers Tour that starts in Santiago and ends

in Buenos Aires. In between, in addition to the cruise, the tour takes visitors to several national parks in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. I admit it; I’m pretty excited to be in this part of the world, only 600 miles from Antarctica. We’ve heard tales from others who’ve taken this cruise through the mess of waterways, islands and fjords between Puntas Arenas and Ushuaia. While the scenery is spectacular, weather conditions are unpredictable and can be treacherous in this stretch of water discovered by Ferdinand Magellan of Portugal, and explored further by Sir Francis Drake of Britain in the 1500s. Charles Darwin sailed this way in the 1830s. “Don’t ask the captain what the weather forecast is,” one crew member told us. “They never predict more than two hours out.” So far we’ve been lucky. We’ve had only one rocky night, some strong winds on land, and snow flurries early this morning. On this fourth day of the cruise, we hold our collective breath. Finally, our landing at Cabo de Hornos (Cape Horn) is a go. After the Zodiacs arrive on the beach, it is our job to climb the 160-plus steps to the top of this giant, treeless rock. After emerging from the protection of the thickly vegetated cliffs (it rains here between 50 inches

Named after explorer Ferdinand Magellan who first saw and described them in 1519, these Magellanic penguins enjoy life on Tucker Islets, small rocky outcroppings in the Strait of Magellan. A visit with these much-loved birds is part of the 17-day Patagonian Frontiers Tour offered by Odysseys Unlimited.

Weather conditions permitting on Cape Horn, where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet, visitors can climb the 160-plus steps to the 22-foot-high monument. Designed by a Chilean artist and made of steel plates that are supposed to withstand 200-mph winds, the monument was blown down in December 2014.

work my cell phone camera, so I hand it to my husband whose internal heater works much better than mine. Before is Cape Horn’s 22-foot steel monument with its albatross silhouette. It looks like a massive Christmas tree ornament, standing solidly against the rolling dark clouds. Occasionally a beam of sunshine breaks through and provides even more drama. I can’t imagine this structure blowing over as it did in December 2014. A photo in front of the monument is a must, then we peak into the tiny, rustic Capilla Stella Maris (Chap-

el Star of the Sea), a respite from the frigid wind. Then it’s time to meet the Chilean naval officer/lighthouse keeper and his wife, who home-schools their daughter in this lonely outpost. In more-than-adequate English, he explains that you have to win a lottery to get this post. Yes, he chooses to be here. “I like this because I can spend time with my family,” he explains. “Otherwise, I’m gone all the time on a ship.” We step out of the lighthouse and are blasted straight-on by tiny ice pel-

lets. My face feels as though hundreds of pins are coming at me. I’m torn between wanting to stay to experience this unusual weather and thinking we should get the heck out. The choice is made for us. Our guides are waving us on, indicating that we must hurry, because the weather is going to get even crazier. I guess we’ve pushed our luck as far as we should.

Region in line for $311 million in gas tax funds REGION — According to a release from the San Diego Associations of Governments, the staff of the California Transportation Commission has recommended that the San Diego region be awarded $311 million in funds, generated by the passage of Senate Bill 1, which recently increased the state gas tax to fund transportation projects throughout the state. The CTC will consider the recommendation when it meets in San Diego on May 16-17. The recommen-

dations were released for three major new grant programs created under SB 1. “These SB 1 awards will be a major infusion of funds to the San Diego region,” SANDAG Chairman and Del Mar City Council member Terry Sinnott said. “With more than $311 million recommended for award, in addition to the more than $450 million already awarded to the region, construction can start in the coming months to deliver transportation system improvements, includ-

ing adding carpool lanes, improving rail lines, and building biking and walking paths.” Recommendations include $195 million for the North Coast Corridor Program, $82 million for the California-Mexico Border System Project and $10.5 million for the Sorrento to Miramar Double Track Project. The CTC staff recommendations also included about $24 million for other projects, including, $12.5 million for the city of Escondido.
