Surf Cup has a new goal: Sustainability
Man heads to prison 31 years after shooting
By Lexy Brodt
RANCHO SANTA FE — A 30-year fugitive who fled to Mexico after shooting his friend in a dispute over a woman was sentenced to nine years in state prison Oct. 3. Simon Mayo, 58, pleaded guilty last month to assault with a firearm causing great bodily injury Love for the Dec. 12, 1988, triangle shooting of Jose Hernan- triggered dez in Rancho 1988 Santa Fe. Under the plea a g r e e m e n t , incident an attemptin RSF ed murder charge was dismissed at sentencing. Mayo fired at least five times on Hernandez, who suffered three gunshot wounds in the back, Deputy District Attorney Keith Watanabe said. The shooting took place outside a residence on Luna de Miel. Mayo remained a fugitive until authorities caught up with him in Austin, Texas, last Dec. 11, one day short of the 30-year anniversary of the shooting. Prosecutors said Mayo and the victim were both vying for the affections of the same woman, whom Mayo married sometime afterward. The victim did not wish to appear at Mayo’s sentencing hearing, but according to Watanabe, the man said he was thankful the matter was finally over three decades later and that the defendant admitted his guilt.
DEL MAR – In a stride toward sustainability, Surf Cup Sports has begun using recycled water to irrigate its 55-acre recreational field in Del Mar. The move will save an estimated 100 million gallons of drinkable water every year, according to a Surf Cup press release. “The impetus of this really comes from our commitment to being great stewards of this land,” said Surf Cup Sports CEO Brian Enge in an interview with The Coast News. Although the city of San Diego owns the property, Surf Cup has been operating the grass fields since the early 1990s. The field is used primarily for soccer games and tournaments, but also hosts sports such as lacrosse and ultimate frisbee. One of Surf Cup’s biggest priorities for the property is maintaining the grass, thus ensuring safe and hospitable playing fields. For years, the property’s grass lived off of well water, which was “poisoning the grass instead of watering it,” said Surf Cup Vice President Rob Haskell. So, Surf Cup started to look for a new solution. “When we thought about ways of taking care of this grass and keeping it healthy, one of those ways was to look at the reality of water shortage, and the reality of where we are at in California,” said Enge. Going for recycled water seemed like a win-win TURN TO SURF CUP ON 5

Grauer School putting focus on climate change ENCINITAS — The Grauer School has dedicated the current school year to an all-campus effort to embrace sustainable environmental practices and work to reduce the local and global impacts of climate change. A joint resolution passed by the school’s Board of Trustees, faculty and students calls for action to help turn back the Earth’s rising temperatures, and to use environmentally sustainable practices wherever possible. The initiative encompasses the entire school community, from curriculum in all academic disciplines, to student activities on and off campus, as well as the school’s front-office functions. On campus, a key goal is carbon neutrality and a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases. Efforts to reduce the school’s carbon footprint include ordering supplies made with sustainable materials, moving toward paperless offices, and practices such as food waste control, composting, no-idle parking lot zones, and a ban on plastic bottles and utensils. The board’s finance committee will also calibrate investment policies with the school’s envi-
ronmental stance. “We feel a new sense of urgency to be good stewards of the environment and address climate change based on recent science, which warns of the potentially catastrophic consequences of inaction,” said Stuart Grauer, Head of School. The initiative, although grounded in the school’s academic curriculum, goes well beyond into all aspects of campus life. An environmental element has been introduced across academic disciplines at the school. For example, Marine Biology students are performing weekly water quality tests at local beaches, and surveying for fish and microplastics in local waterways. History students are learning about the establishment of the national park system and creation of the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Math students are investigating the statistical evidence of climate change and calculating the costs and benefits of outfitting all school buildings with solar panels. The student government has even created a new position this year for a Vice President of Sustainability.

Students get set for Catalina swim SOLANA BEACH — On Oct. 12, six young athletes will attempt to break the Uneven Open Relay record and raise money for charity by swimming 20.2 miles of the Catalina Channel overnight. The current record of 7 hours and 4 minutes was set in 1985. The athletes, who have dubbed themselves the Channel Chasers, are members of the elite Senior Champ team at Rancho San Dieguito (RSD) swim club in Solana Beach. RSD coach Gracie Van der Byl, an open-water swimmer record holder and former Women’s Open Water Swimmer of the Year award nominee, will lead the two female/four male team of Robbie Andrews, 16, of Cathedral Catholic High School, Taylor Lyon, 16 of Torrey Pines High School; Mason Morris,16, of The Bishop’s School, Drew Schmidt, 17 and Revere Schmidt, 14, of Santa Fe Christian School and Kyle Wong, 16, of Cathedral Catholic High School. The Catalina Channel is known as one of the most grueling open-water routes in the world, due to cold water and strong, unpredictable currents. The Channel Chasers will begin the relay at 9 p.m. from the shores of Two Harbors on Catalina, with each team mem-

ber swimming in rotations throughout the night. According to the official rules of the Catalina Channel Swimming Federation, swimmers are not allowed to wear wetsuits, just one porous suit and one swim cap. The swimmers can eat and drink as needed, but they cannot lean on the support boat or use any flotation support. They hope to arrive in San Pedro before 4 a.m. Oct. 13. The event will raise money for the Pardee Aquatics Center at the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito. The
Pardee Aquatic Center hosts more than 700 swimmers of all ages daily, including the RSD Swim Team, Solana Beach Swim Masters, Boys & Girls Club swim lessons and community lap swimmers. Nearly 8,000 swim lessons are taught each year and many are free to local youth. Years of use has taken its toll on the aquatic center and much needed repairs and enhancements are needed for sustainability. With the help of their coach, the Channel Chasers have undertaken the Catalina Channel swim as a way to
give back to a community resource that has been instrumental in their development as elite athletes. “A record would be great, but mostly I hope this experience inspires them to do more and grow as young adults,” said Van der Byl. “When you realize that more people have reached the summit of Everest than have crossed the Catalina Channel, it is even more impressive.” You can support the Channel Chasers at http:// weblink.donorperfect.com/ ChannelChasers.

RSF equestrian: ‘I get paid to do what I love’ By Jemma Samala
RANCHO SANTA FE — Jason McArdle appears to smoothly and effortlessly ride Elicole through a morning workout at Fairbanks Valley Farms. McArdle agreed that “when you have a good rider and horse, it makes it look so effortless, but it’s not – that’s our job to set up the horse to succeed.” And succeed they have, as Elicole is the 10-year-old mare that McArdle recently rode to win the Blenheim South Pacific Trophy, $25k Show Jumping Grand Prix. Elicole’s owners are Bob and Pam Buie, who have been residents of Rancho Santa Fe for decades. McArdle trains and rides Elicole, as well as a handful of other private horses at Fairbanks Valley Farms, next door to McArdle Equestrian, which he runs with his wife, Susan. McArdle credits the Buies for hiring him 15 years ago and bringing him to Rancho Santa Fe. While 15 years may seem like a long time to maintain a successful working relationship, McArdle feels the success comes from the Buies’ desire to “always put the horses first.” And how did he meet his wife? A handful of years ago, Susan McArdle, who was running her own equestrian business in Anaheim Hills, was looking for a horse to buy and was recommended to contact Jason. After meeting her, Jason knew that one day he was going to marry her. But he need-

Info at: delmarfairgrounds.com, under Events Calendar. Jason McArdle encourages new spectators to attend the events, because “anytime the sport can increase exposure, it will bring new riders, sponsors, and involvement.” Go look for him, enjoy a family-friendly event, and cheer on the horses — he says they appreciate it. ed to get her to say yes to a date first. Persisting for six months, she finally agreed to a date, and they’ve been the go-to equestrian couple ever since. The McArdles have their hands full for sure now as they have a 3-year-old son and a 3-month old daughter, plus growing their McArdle Equestrian business,
located at the Albert Court stables in Rancho Santa Fe. They offer full training packages, as well as riding lessons. And if you don’t have a horse, they have a pony for the young beginner riders. Susan McArdle teaches the younger riders, and Jason McArdle will help the older ones. During summers, they offer a horse camp for kids. While most have grooms to help care for the horses, he feels that for young riders “it’s really important to bond with their horses, not just come and go. It’s important for kids to learn to take care of them — graze, clean tack, tack up. It teaches responsibility. Watching the kids mature and develop and create a bond with their animals is amazing.” Jason McArdle does like to keep the private show horses to a small group since he wants to get to know each horse every day and personally ride them. Occasionally, he will also train racehorses. And like horse racing, there are times horses can be owned by a group/syndicate. And also like horse racing, owning in a group helps owners share costs, and he said is much more fun as you get everyone involved in the thrill of the competition. Competition is an integral part of the sport for Jason McArdle, as well as Elicole, who he proudly boasts is a “fighter, and tries her heart out each time” they
compete. Elicole has been under his training since she was a 4-year-old, and they are a winning combo, as Elicole has already won multiple National Grand Prixs. Jason McArdle “love(s) to compete, but I love the bond with the horse.” Jason McArdle has done pretty well for himself in the sport of show jumping, especially for a guy who wasn’t initially scheduled to get a riding lesson. His mother bought a lesson for his younger brother, but when it was determined his brother was too young, Jason McArdle took the lesson instead, setting in motion his future. Now, working and living in Rancho Santa Fe, he feels there is “no better place to live, people are great, weather is perfect, there’s beautiful scenery, it’s a lovely town. I didn’t know it was here ‘til I got here. And it’s a great horse community — there’s polo, dressage, trails, we go out and wave to people, and they slow down for horses here.” Spoken with a smile, Jason McArdle reflects that with regards to show jumping, “I get paid to do what I love. It’s taken me all over the world, I’ve met lots of great people and been to lots of great places. Not too people get to be outside and do what they love every day of the week.” Jason McArdle seems to have found his dreams come true in the valleys of Rancho Santa Fe.

ENCINITAS — A community of walkers is devastated after one of their own — a man dubbed “The Walking Man” was hit by a truck on his daily morning walk Sept. 23 and later died. What makes it worse, they say, is that he was walking to stay alive. Encinitas resident David Goodblatt, 76, was crossing Rancho Santa Fe Road near the intersection of Lone Jack Road around 6:45 a.m. when he was struck by a Toyota Tundra pickup driven by a 28-yearold man. The Medical Examiner's Office reported Goodblatt was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, "where his condition continued to decline" and he was pronounced dead at 12:10 a.m. on Sept. 25. The pickup driver remained at the scene and cooperated with deputies. Sgt. Rob Siegried of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department told The Coast News that while an investigation is ongoing, the driver did not run a stop sign, appearing instead to just not be paying attention. Sheri Schroeder said she’d seen Goodblatt walking in the neighborhood for at least 20 years, but never knew his name until he died. She said he was always very focused on his walks and didn’t do a lot of talking, but one day, about eight years ago, she decided to engage him in conversation. “I finally said, ‘Why do you walk every morning, you’re so determined?’ and he said, ‘I have diabetes, I walk to stay alive,’” Schroeder said. “And that’s what I think hit me so hard, is that the irony of him walking to stay alive, he was killed. I'm sick to my stomach.” A Dignity Memorial web page says Goodblatt was born on Dec. 20, 1942, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is survived by a woman named Sonya. The author of the page, Gary Porton, said David was one of the kindest and most generous people he had ever met. “His knowledge was amazing in its depth and breadth,” Porton wrote. “One always learned something from David's books and articles. One could trust David's citations and quotations. His analyses were always well-thought out and clear … David's life was truly a blessing to all of us who got to be with him.” A UCSD website lists Goodblatt as faculty, saying he taught at the University beginning in 1988. The site says he received his A.B. from Harvard in 1963, an M.H.L. from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1966, and a Ph.D. from Brown University in 1972. He worked on the history of the Jewish people, Judaism and the Middle East in the millen-
David Goodblatt nium preceding the rise of Islam. Schroeder says she and her husband live around the corner from where Goodblatt was struck— she heard sirens that morning but didn’t know what they were for — and they’ve been walking that intersection every morning for 10 years. She said crossing the intersection — a four-way stop in a residential neighborhood — has long been a dangerous undertaking, saying she’s nearly been hit about five times. “I've had people make a left-hand turn from Lone Jack that nearly run me over,” she said. “I remember last year (a driver) made that left turn and she probably came within 12 inches of hitting me. And I screamed and slapped her car as it went by me, because I was terrified. And she just suddenly blinks and looks at me like ‘Oh my God, where’d you come from?’” She said just the other day, a woman told her she almost got run over while crossing the street on her horse. “She said, ‘How do you miss a 2,000-pound animal in the intersection?” Schroeder said. She said the danger she and her neighbors feel at the intersection is a common topic of conversation. She says every now and then they’ll get really fed up and call the sheriff’s department to patrol the intersection. She said in any given 30-minute span you will probably see 20 cars that didn't stop. “I’ll have a (patrol) car one or two days and they’ll come and write a bunch of tickets because it’s really easy to do and then I don’t see them again for a year or two until I call again,” she said. “And I call when I’m nearly hit, I get really mad.” Schroeder says she does everything she can to make it easy for drivers to see her when she’s walking — she tries to wear clothes with bright colors and makes sure she makes eye contact so drivers know she’s crossing. Schroeder said she didn’t know Goodblatt other than just a nod, but she’s incensed that somebody was that careless and killed a man. “I’m ready to hold up a picket sign in the morning and say, ‘Hey you finally did it, you killed somebody, are you happy?’” she said. “David didn’t deserve to die.”

Can legislation really fix the state’s housing problem?
Vaping poses serious threat By Diane Strader
Recently, the California Department of Public Health issued an alert to health departments throughout the state regarding vaping-associated pulmonary injury (VAPI). This is the mysterious condition sending primarily teens and young adults to emergency rooms across
itive answers are found, but in the meantime, it’s safe to say no form of vaping can be considered harmless. Meanwhile, our kids are now exposed to marijuana billboards on the 78, e-cigarette commercials on TV, radio ads for “recreational cannabis,” and who-knows-what on social media.

the country with trouble breathing. Many are placed on ventilators, and as many as five have died. In California, there have been 36 cases since June, eight of them have been in San Diego County, the largest number throughout the state. While experts investigate these cases and try to determine the cause, industries are pointing fingers and deflecting blame. JUUL, the e-cigarette giant that turned youth vaping into an epidemic, claims to have “robust safety monitoring,” and state-sanctioned marijuana industries claim the problem likely stems from black-market THC pods. It could be years before defin-
Marijuana has surpassed alcohol as the first substance juvenile offenders report trying (often before age 13), and only 14% of them believe it’s harmful, according to a SANDAG report. Teen vaping has increased 900% between 2011 and 2015. Nearly 1 in 11 U.S. students has used marijuana in vaping devices, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. And at the same time vaping health concerns are increasing, local officials in Oceanside and Vista approved expanding marijuana business, where vaping is estimated to be as much as 30% of California’s weed market, Barron’s reports. On Aug. 27, Vista ap-
proved allowing their 11 Measure Z dispensaries to deliver marijuana, and expanding its zoning code to allow manufacturing, distribution and testing. You probably agree we’re in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Purdue Pharma launched OxyContin in 1996 — over 20 years ago. The number of people who admitted using OxyContin for non-medical purposes increased dramatically from about 400,000 in 1999 to 1.9 million in 2001 to 2.8 million in 2003, according to the FDA. Drug overdose deaths rose from 16,849 in 1999 to 70,237 in 2017, according to the National Institutes of Health, and have remained stubbornly high. We are currently in the infancy of corporate marketing of e-cigarettes and marijuana. JUUL launched their slick e-cigarette device in 2017, and marijuana businesses have not yet opened in North County. Officials can’t state definitively the health impacts e-cigarettes or explain how vaping damages your lungs. But the US Surgeon General did issue an advisory last month to raise awareness of the known and potential harms marijuana can cause to developing brains, and urged pregnant women and adolescents in particular not to use it in any form. It may be decades before health officials, regulators, or political leaders take serious action to prevent youth vaping. But kids need you now — share your concerns, set rules and expectations against vaping, impose consequences if necessary, and stay informed. Deaths from vaping have just begun; let’s stop them in their tracks. Diane Strader is a Board member of the North Coastal Prevention Coalition and retired pediatric nurse.
here were smiles all around and a lot of back-slapping the other day when Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a package of bills he firmly believes will work quickly toward ending California’s undeniable housing problems of high prices and low availability. The package imposes rent controls statewide, despite last year’s vote on Proposition 10 which saw the majority in 56 of 58 California counties oppose similar controls for fear they would discourage building of enough new apartments to seriously dent the availability shortage. There are also new limits on single-family zoning, designed to encourage building of backyard “granny flats,” and provisions that may encourage some companies to buy up existing homes, then install new partitions to create a dozen or more rental units in one house. The new laws will also lower fees on low-income housing projects and forbid local moratoria on new housing. But one underlying question remains unanswered: Can California legislate its way out of the housing crisis? It’s a query similar to what was asked during the 1960s, an era when the federal government passed myriad laws banning racial discrimination in voting, housing, employment, education and other parts of life. “You can’t legislate morality,” critics said then. But it’s turned out differently. America is far from free of discrimination, but official racial discrimination has been largely turned around, to the point where some cities and states now face lawsuits over alleged “reverse discrimination,” which claim minorities get hiring pref-
california focus thomas d. elias erence over whites who are equally or more qualified. California realtors don’t phrase it the same way opponents of civil rights laws once did, but their argument is essentially the same: The state can create conditions it thinks should increase or enhance the building of new homes, be they apartments or condominiums or individual houses, but it can’t make anyone build or buy them. Before developers turn their first shovel of dirt, they must be convinced they’ll make a profit. These days, they apparently don’t feel that way. As of early fall, just over 111,000 permits had been issued statewide for new houses this year, 12 percent less than a year ago, according to the California Association of Realtors. Apartment development, the realtors said, was down 52 percent. At the same time every developer in the state knew the housing law package was sure to pass the Legislature and get Newsom’s signature. Which means the new laws may not spur even nearly the 500,000 new housing units the governor has said are needed each year for the next seven in order to solve the state’s problems. And yet … officials charged with fighting the parallel problem of homelessness report that for every 33 persons they can place in the transition quarters now going up in various parts of the state, 150 more persons will become homeless, largely because of high rent and other affordability prob-
lems. This poses an enormous conundrum: High rents have driven thousands to live in the streets, either in tents or vehicles, but without high rents, who’s going to build enough new apartments to resolve the shortage? If there’s a solution to this problem, it may be geographic. Why not build much of the new housing where land is cheap rather than forcing cities in the state’s most expensive, affluent ZIP codes to allow more construction? For in many areas, especially along the coast and in the Silicon Valley, land prices are the single largest expense in homebuilding and — along with demand — the foremost driver of high prices. Newsom has tried to be completely egalitarian about enforcing his policies, which dictate that all cities approve new housing permits in amounts proportional to their existing population. That has not worked. The inventory of unsold homes did not shrink in the last year, stymying new development that could resolve at least part of the problem. The new laws, wrote CAR president Jared Martin the other day, will “make it more difficult for hard-working Californians to find an affordable place to live.” So why not earmark some of the state’s current $21 billion budget surplus for building new housing where land is cheap, fees low and regulations minimal? That would be the Central Valley and some desert areas of Southern California. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com. For more Elias columns, visit www. californiafocus.net.

Alleged Poway synagogue shooter pleads not guilty REGION — A 20-yearold nursing student accused of opening fire at a Poway synagogue, killing one congregant and injuring several others, pleaded not guilty Oct. 3 to charges of murder, attempted murder, arson and hate crime allegations. John T. Earnest was bound over last month on charges stemming from the April 27 shooting at Chabad of Poway, as well as the March 24 blaze at the Dar-ul-
Arqam Mosque, also known as the Islamic Center of Escondido. Presiding Judge Peter C. Deddeh ruled that enough evidence was presented by prosecutors to hold Earnest to answer on the charges, which could lead to the death penalty. Earnest pleaded not guilty Oct. 3 to a new charging document stemming from the preliminary hearing, though prosecutors made little changes to
the original charges. The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office has yet to decide whether to pursue capital punishment against the Rancho Penasquitos resident, who’s being held without bail. Deputy District Attorney David Grapilon said it would be “a minimum of a month or two” before the death penalty decision can be made, with further research into Earnest’s back-
ground and communication with the victims’ families needed before rendering a decision. Earnest is due back in court Dec. 5 for a status hearing, at which time a trial date will likely be set. He also faces more than 100 hate crime-related counts filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and could also face the death penalty in the federal case. — City News Service

By building an in-ground sprinkler system, they were able to monumentally cut their water usage. “It’s quite a difference,” said Haskell. But for Surf Cup, saving potable water is just one piece of a larger effort
to be more environmentally conscious. For the last two decades, the company has filtered all of its trash for recycling – sorting through garbage bag after bag to separate out recyclables. “The city asked us to do things like that a long time ago, and we took it to the extreme,” said Haskell. Down the road, Surf Cup is aiming to completely eliminate plastic from its tournaments – and also start
looking at the implementation of solar power as the facility’s energy source. Haskell said he thinks such efforts not only augment sustainability but also show young athletes the value of stewardship. “We have a lot of young minds and a lot of young athletes come through these facilities,” Haskell said. “If we act more responsibly, maybe we can pass more of an impact along to these kids.”
loved that,” Hillman said. “She was so good. I would make trips to France over the last 50 years and I would remember these obscure things (that she taught me), that's how good she was.” Another employee he fondly recalled was the school’s custodian, Bill Smith, who he called one of his first mentors. Smith was a musician who played guitar in a country band on the weekends and he and Hillman became fast friends. “I would go to Bill’s house on the weekends whenever possible and he was fantastic, he taught me so much about music,” Hillman said, adding that Smith was also there for him after his father died when he was 16. Their friendship lasted up until Smith died from Parkinson’s disease. Hillman said he spent time with Smith four days before he died. “I sat with him and I sang to him and I said, ‘Bill, if it hadn't been for you I
would've probably not (had a career in music).’ And he said, ‘No, I just showed you the door. I knew you had the goods, I just pointed you to the way to go,’ ” Hillman said. After his death, Smith’s widow gifted Hillman one of Smith’s guitars — a Martin D-28 — “which I prize.” Hillman said he was raised on the rock and roll of the ’50s and later got introduced to folk music through his older sister, Susan, who turned him on to Pete Seeger, The Weavers, Lead Belly and Woody Guthrie. “Then I heard bluegrass and it just hit a nerve,” he said. “It was exciting, it was improvisational, high energy. I loved the singing, the two, three, and four-part harmonies.” He said he started learning how to play bluegrass from records and he originally started on guitar then went to mandolin, going up to Berkeley for a lesson, he said, since nobody in the area taught the mandolin.
Hillman helped pioneer the genre “country rock” and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. His most recent work is “Biding My Time,” a solo album recorded in 2017 and produced by the late, great Tom Petty. Hillman, who’s also celebrating his 40th wedding anniversary this month with his wife Connie, still tours every now and again. Last month he played two soldout shows at The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad. The shows were attended by some of his fellow alumni. “It was great, he was so good and then he was so gracious afterward and we chatted,” said Sue Cooper, San Dieguito High class of ’66 and alumni vice chair. Hillman will be the fifth person inducted into the high school’s hall of fame. The first inductee, in 2015, was Linda Benson, a professional surfer who also did stunt work for the likes of Annette Funicello and
HWAC offers to help shelter groups globally RANCHO SANTA FE — In October, Helen Woodward Animal Center professionals met face-to-face with animal welfare advocates along the coast of the Baltic Sea. Through The Business of Saving Lives, the center has demonstrated its dedication to saving the lives of orphan pets, not only within its San Diego-based facility, but within shelters and rescues across the globe. The latest evolution of these educational workshops has taken the training to foreign countries in-need that are unable to make the long journey to Southern California. Helen Woodward Animal Center leaders are responding to the call for help from Estonian, Finnish, and Swedish shelter groups working toward humane treatment of animals on the other side of the world. The Estonia Animal Welfare Society hosted the conference Oct. 3, in Tallinn Teacher’s House in the Medieval Square. The Business of Saving Lives began at Helen Woodward Animal Center in 2002 as quarterly workshops, taught by center management team members on the Rancho Santa Fe, grounds. The goal of the workshops is to share the success the center has experienced through President and CEO Mike Arms’ business-focused approach. Business practices such as marketing, social media and customer service take on an equal importance to non-profit goals such as fundraising, volunteer-building and humane animal care, leading to more pets placed in lifelong homes, expanded reach into communities and more generated funds to carry on programs. Over the years, shelters from throughout the United States and as far Deborah Walley. She was followed by football kicker Tom Dempsey, who set a then-NFL record with a 63-yard field goal in 1970; Merna Brown, internationally known, loved, and highly regarded as Sri Mrinalini Mata, the president of the international organization the Self Realization Fellowship; and John Fairchild, a former basketball player who was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers.
away as Argentina, Ethiopia, Singapore, India, Ireland, Kenya and Romania have traveled to HWAC to take part in the free training. In 2015, Arms decided to extend the program to organizations unable to afford the travel, providing life-saving training at absolutely no cost to the rescue groups right in their own cities. Since that time, The Business of Saving Lives has made its way to U.S based shelters in New York, Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, Texas, New Jersey, Delaware, Florida, and Nevada and abroad to Sydney, Australia, and Puerto Rico. The decision to take the training to the coast of the Baltic Sea came earlier this year when Arms attended an International Companion Animal Welfare Conference in Krakow, Poland. Invited as a speaker at the global summit focused on improving humane treatment of animals, representatives from The Estonia Animal Welfare Society approached Arms to ask for his assistance with the challenges faced by Northern European animal groups and he agreed to organize the trip. The workshop included an informative session with Arms, targeted at adapting policies to meet the changing needs of the animals and the area, along with sessions taught by center management experts who will provide information on concrete and proven fundraising methods; creative, out-of-the-box public relations techniques; and social media best practices. “The only way to change the world of animal welfare is to work together,” said Arms. For more information or to register, visit animalcenter.org or call (858) 7564117, ext. 302. “Chris was a very unanimous decision,” Cooper said of the alumni committee choosing Hillman for this year’s induction honor. “He’s excited, you can see it in his face, he is so excited about the whole thing.” The ceremony will be held on Oct. 24 in the library of the high school. It is limited to Mustangs alumni only and is free to attend. To RSVP visit sdafoundation. com/alumni/

ENCINITAS — A plan to widen bike lanes and narrow travel lanes along South Coast Highway 101 to make it safer for cyclists was recently approved in Encinitas. The plan includes a buffer zone to separate the bike lane from traffic, along the stretch of road between Chesterfield Drive and the start of Solana Beach. The $500,000 project is designed to better connect Solana Beach and the Cardiff rail trail, and future bicycle facilities to be built with the Leucadia Streetscape project. The plan is meant to encourage more residents to use their bicycles instead of their cars, which would also thereby reduce emissions. The project was approved at the Sept. 25 City Council meeting. More than 30 speakers spoke at the meeting, some, the more casual bike riders, said they were in support of the plan as is, others, the more experienced sport cyclists, said the protected bike lanes would be confining and they wanted sharrows and signage added. Linda Webb, an avid bike rider for more than 50 years who rides up to 10,000 miles a year, noted flaws in the plan that she said must be addressed and urged the council to vote no. “Currently there are runners, pedestrians, dogs, car doors, wrong-way riders on this stretch," Webb said. “Right now we can safely navigate these obstacles by moving out into the lane, once those cars and buffers are there that won’t be possible … Bicycling is not going to work well as a transportation mode when we’re maneuvering in a confined space and having to travel at five miles an hour.” Another avid cyclist, Dan Marks, said he rides about 5,000 miles a year and said he’d give the plan a “C” grade. “You certainly cannot mix pedestrians with cyclists, particularly in these areas, because there are a huge number of pedestrians,” he said. Marks cited the new
bike path from the railway undercrossing down to VG Donuts as an example, saying, “There is nothing more dangerous than somebody walking their dog on a leash for a cyclist, you just can’t have it.” The mayor’s husband, Jeremy Blakespear, spoke on behalf of “would-be” cyclists and urged the council not to be swayed by the “vehicular cyclist special interest group” and go with the proposed plan, as it is safe for cyclists of all ages and abilities. “The best available evidence shows that protected bike ways not only encourage increased ridership, but in fact improve overall safety,” he said. “The opposition is seeking to nitpick this proposal to death." State Assemblywoman Tasha Boerner Horvath, a former Encinitas city councilwoman, said the north-
bound bike lane is horrible — she’s almost fallen three times and almost been hit by cars twice. She said she’s excited about the project. “Let’s not dillydally, let’s not delay,” she told the council. In council’s deliberation before the vote, they opted to approve the plan with the addition of sharrows, white pavement markings that remind bicyclists and motorists that the lane must be shared, and extra signage indicating cyclists and cars must share the lane. “Our world continues to change, and I believe we have to change with it,” Deputy Mayor Jody Hubbard said. Councilwoman Kellie Shay Hinze admitted that this was not an easy decision for them to make, but ultimately “This project … is the best choice for the most amount of people.”

When the man flu is real Food &Wine small The 130-year Inglenook tale, from Niebaum to Coppola talk jean gillette taste of wine
K, guys. Here’s some advice you’ve never heard before. Talk to your wife. I’m not saying pour out your heart, but there are some feelings you really ought to share. Consider sharing things like, “I am burning up with fever and feel like crud on a cracker. Perhaps you might bring me the thermometer.” If you are of an age and/or perhaps have some other health issue going on (admit it, you have something … heart, stomach, liver, something), continuing to be the strong, silent, independent sort may get you killed. And, no, not by your wife. As of last weekend, I have firsthand proof. It is one of those double-edged sword thingees. It is lovely to have a husband who doesn’t complain. He doesn’t criticize my cooking nor my housekeeping. He doesn’t care how I wear my hair or if I decide to go all day in my sweatpants with no makeup. And, no, he doesn’t need my help with anything, thank you very much. The other edge of that sword was that he made not a peep about feeling ill until I found him face-down
on the floor at 2 a.m. He was calling for help, but he was so weak, I wasn’t sure what I was hearing. I finally got up to investigate, fortunately. Turns out he was down with Type A influenza and pneumonia. I nearly passed out when I heard the paramedic say, “His temperature is 106!” His GP told him, a few days later; the Type A strain is the one that comes on fast. If you are in a vulnerable condition for any reason, you might go to bed and not wake up. His next stop was the ER and a short stay at the local hospital while they pumped him full of at least two antibiotics. And thank God for modern medicine, eh? I always feel sorry for the paramedics and nurses who have to put in his IV and take blood. The man has the worst, skinny, rubbery veins I have ever encountered. I was pretty impressed by the whole group this time, though. They didn’t seem to struggle or even leave bruises. Despite hanging out on death’s front porch, my hubbie was home and being crabby within two days and is recovering nicely. Why was he crabby? Because I kept asking him how he was feeling. Men. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who intends to keep asking, so there. Contact her at jean@ coastnewsgroup.com.
wife decides to sell the estate and in 1975 Francis and Eleanor Coppola buys 1,560 acres and the Niebaum mansion with profits from “The Godfather” films. In 1978, Coppola harvests their new flagship Rubicon wine that launches seven years later in 1985. In 1989, genetic testing proves the Rubicon Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the original that Niebaum brought back from France in the 1880s, now registered as Rubicon Estate heritage Clone #29. 1990 brings more accolades. Wine Spectator scores the Inglenook 1941 Cabernet Sauvignon a perfect 100 points and names it one of the Top Wines of the Century. In 2011, Coppola’s dream of once again owning the Inglenook brand name was complete. Rumor has it that Coppola paid more
he Inglenook/Francis Ford Coppola story is one of the wine industry’s most fascinating tales. If you are wondering could this be the same Francis Ford Coppola that created blockbuster movies, “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part II” along with “Apocalypse Now,” you would be correct. Onto the tale. Gustave Niebaum, a Finnish sea captain, wine connoisseur, and fur trader entrepreneur arrives in San Francisco in 1868. In 1879, Niebaum purchases the 78-acre G. Koni farm west of Rutherford named Inglenook, a Scottish expression meaning “cozy corner,” along with a neighboring 440-acre property for $48,000, with grapes initially planted in 1871. The first vintage of grapes is crushed in 1882 and is also when Niebaum expands another 712 acres from five neighboring farms purchased. The next 70 years sees the birth of grandnephew John Daniels, the passing of Niebaum resulting in

a discontinuation of production which restarted in 1911 until production was again shutdown in 1919 by Prohibition. Prohibition is repealed in 1933 and Inglenook starts back up with John Daniels at the helm. In 1941, Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon achieves a perfect 100 score by Wine Spectator and celebrates their 75th Diamond Anniversary in 1954. Small harvests and low profits in 1964 forced the sale of Inglenook to United Vintners and another sale in 1969 resulting in the sold Inglenook brand falling from a premier wine
to table wine that many us living today remember growing up. With the passing of Daniels in 1970, his

San Diego is top US county at Great American Beer Festival
he Great American Beer Festival (GABF), held annually in Denver, Colorado, is the national Brewers Association’s largest event. In addition to a three-day beer festival that attracts 60,000 attendees over four sessions, GABF includes one of the largest beer competitions in the world. In 2019, a record 2,295 breweries (from all 50 states plus D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) entered 9,497 beers into competition. A total of 283 medals were awarded across 107 beer style categories. San Diego breweries won 18 medals at the 2019 GABF. That is more than in recent years (16 in 2018, 14 in 2017), despite the fact that more breweries and
craft beer in North County Bill Vanderburgh more beers competed this year. Five breweries from North County won medals this year: two Pizza Port locations (Solana Beach, Bressi Ranch), Rip Current (San Marcos), Breakwater (Oceanside) and Lost Abbey (San Marcos). In addition, Rouleur Brewing of Carlsbad contract brewed a beer for MotoSonora Brewing that won a silver in the Malt Liquor category, though that only shows up as an official medal for MotoSo-

nora. That could also be Arthur, who is a founding considered a second medal partner of that Tuscon, Arfor Port Brewing’s Tomme izona, brewery. Once again, San Diego is punching above its weight class. San Diego breweries won 26.5% of the 68 medals won by California, despite having only about 15.5% of California’s breweries. Compared to the entire field, San Diego won about 6% of all medals awarded, and it has about 2% of all U.S. breweries. No other state won more medals than California. Colorado was second with 40. In fact, Colorado was the only state that beat San with awarD Diego County’s 2019 GABF medal count. Texas had 16. winning Ohio and Oregon won 15 attorneys each. Washington certiFieD medals had 14.

clude medals for some of San Diego’s oldest craft breweries and most consistent GABF medalists: Rip Current, Pizza Port, Lost Abbey, Stone, Alesmith and Coronado. Second Chance Beer Co. won its third GABF gold medal in four years for Tabula Rasa in the Robust Porter category. I can’t find another beer that has a better record of wins. Breakwater Brewery of Oceanside won back-toback GABF gold for Rye Dawn, a rye-based brown ale that also won a gold at the 2016 World Beer Cup. SouthNorte won a second silver in the Specialty Beer category for AgavaMente, a hibiscus and agave lager. Coronado Brewing’s bronze for Weekend Vibes in the American Style India Pale Ale category is also remarkable because
there were 342 entries in that category (second only to the Hazy or Juicy IPA category, which had 348 entries). Four of San Diego’s 2019 GABF medal-winning beers — two each from Coronado and SouthNorte — were brewed in the same Bay Park facility. If you have seen the San Diego medal count mentioned by other media outlets as 17, that’s because they have excluded Saint Archer’s silver medal in the Contemporary American-Style Pilsener category. Saint Archer is owned by Miller Coors, so it does not count as an independent craft brewer according to the Brewers Association definition. There was a very notable lack of applause from the huge crowd of brewers at the medal ceremony when Saint Archer’s win was announced.
Sports bar nirvana on the beach at Tower 13
here is a stretch of Cardiff-by-the-Sea along the beach just south of San Elijo that is always a treat to drive though as it has limited development other than the smattering of restaurants and bars that have been there for years. Tower 13 is among those and would fall under that classification with a heavy emphasis on attracting sports fans given the plethora of TVs and being the official gathering spot for University of Michigan and Auburn football fans for college football game viewing and socializing. My recent visit found me there on a Monday night and the place was jumping with football fans there to cheer on the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets. It had been a while since I’ve done a sports bar on a game day, especially Monday night when the fans from each team turn out in full force and in their team’s jerseys to bask in the glory of their national
lick the plate david boylan television appearance … regardless of their record. Early season Monday night games tend to attract even more enthusiastic fans, as their teams have not had the opportunity to compile a losing record yet which tends to dampen the enthusiasm. I still plan on attending a Saturday University of Michigan game just to hang out with some fellow Michiganders and I do have a sibling who is a U of M graduate so there is a loose connection. They technically call it Tower 13 Cardiff Beach Bar and given its epic location on Coast Highway just across the street from the beach that is an appropriate description.

Connecting generations through technology Four easy ways tech can bring grandparents closer to their younger family members Smart home technology is becoming more and more popular, making it easier for people of all ages to cook or monitor their house while away from home, take care of the shopping without leaving their living room, or even video chatting with their doctor from the comfort and convenience of their bed. The technology and internet speeds available today are also making it easier for people to connect and have meaningful moments of human connection, especially for family and friends who live far away, or who have experienced a life-changing event such as illness or death in the family that has left them feeling alone and isolated. Larry has been coping with the loss of his wife, Pat, after a difficult battle with

dementia. To keep his late wife’s memory alive, Larry is using social media to connect with his granddaughter Jessica over his most precious stories about his wife. Through videos about his life (past and present) that he shares with Jessica on social media, Larry and his granddaughter are learning about each other more than ever. Like Larry’s and Jessica’s newfound digital connection, here are four ways technology can help grandparents connect with their younger family members. 1. MESSAGING APPS A recent study revealed that 73% of grandparents own smartphones, which means that the power to connect is already in the palm of their hand. Messaging apps like WhatsApp or Talkatone are a great introduction to texting for grandparents. Messaging apps make it easy to send and receive text updates, photos and videos all in one place. And, when there’s time for a longer con-
form for sharing school projects and artwork. And don’t forget about family tree apps like Ancestry, where you can all discover photos and stories together as you navigate your family history. 4. SOCIAL MEDIA Start a private Instagram account where you can post photos and videos for your family’s eyes only. Grandparents have lots to share, so encourage them to make their own Instagram handles and record their stories. This can be a unique way to learn about your grandparent’s past or to pass down family memories, post those Ancestry results, or share family recipes that may otherwise get lost over the years. Facebook is the most popular social media platform among grandparents. Snapchat is another option to send and receive custom pictures or videos with a variety of fun filters and lenses.
HOW TO HELP YOUR GRANDPARENTS While nearly threequarters of grandparents have smartphones, only 44% identify as tech-savvy. Teaching non-tech savvy family members how to use video chat and social media can be a bonding experience and will help pave the way for easier and more frequent communication in the future. You can also set your grandparent up with useful home features like the SURE Universal Remote, which allows them to control their TV and other devices from their smartphone. Some grandparents may not realize they can watch their cable TV content from their mobile device or schedule a DVR recording using apps like Cox Connect. Technology doesn’t have to be in the way of making real human connections. It can be the way – especially for older adults like Larry. Learn more about Larry’s journey to using technology at www.cox.com/grandstories.

session for the radio show recently. We recorded on the open-air back deck that overlooks the lagoon and is a great place to hang out. It would also be a nice place for a private party. It’s impressive that they brought in a chef with a solid background to run the kitchen and elevate their menu a bit above standard sports bar fare. A prime example of that is the inclusion of a Cuban sandwich on the menu. If you’ve read Lick the Plate over the years you
may be aware of my serious love of this sandwich. I’m not aware of another in the North County coastal area so I was quite excited to see this on the menu prior to my visit. AJ puts his own spin on it with braised pork, black forest ham, applewood smoked bacon, cheese and, of course, pickles on a really nice roll. The bacon was a new ingredient on a Cuban for me and well, bacon tends to work nicely with other pork products and it did here. While we
are on the topic of sandwiches, chef AJ rounds out that section of the menu nicely with a Philly Cheesesteak, Turkey Club, Tuna Melt and Seared Ahi. The elevated bar food menu is also evident in the shared plates where Ceviche, Mussels, Greek Hummus and Ahi Poke Tostada coexist nicely with Gnarly Nachos, Loaded Tots, BBQ Pork Sliders and Buffalo Cauliflower. Wings are also a big part of the beach/ sports bar experience and I
counted over 20 flavor and heat options to go to with their traditional or boneless wings. Some nice-looking salads, tacos and burgers in the single, double and triple variety and a meatless option are also available. AJ’s fish tacos are award winning and definitely worthy of a try. There is definitely something for everyone on the Tower 13 menu and combined with its fabulous location would please just about everyone in a large
group. I should also mention that as a fan of pinball, they have a Family Guy themed machine that caught my attention immediately and I will be back to play while I enjoy another fine Cuban sandwich. They have 27 beers on tap, 30 TVs to catch your favorite game, are locally owned, and sit directly across the street from Tower 13 lifeguard tower … hence the name! Check them out at www.tower13.com.

about at Seasalt in Del Mar, covered by my colleague Rico Cassoni, underlined California Wine Month. Cabernet Sauvignon, the king of wines in California, got the jump on its other rivals, by declaring “National Cabernet Day” the end of August. Cab is famous on a global scale, and the grape has contributed immensely to California’s fame in the wine world. It’s the most widely planted grape in this state. The latest figures have it at 90,782 acres. Even California Gov. Gavin Newsom is part owner in three Napa Valley wineries, led by Plumpjack. Their 2014 Reserve Cab goes for $300 at the winery. New Cab releases to
look for include: 2017 Lewis Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, $100. Lewis President Dennis Bell reports that his 2017 Cab is “the best since 2013,” with alluring oak, spice, front palate fruit, and a long, lavish finish. Learn more at lewiscellars.com. 2015 Frank Family Winston Hill Cabernet, Napa Valley, $150. Crafted entirely from the deepest, darkest fruit available on the estate. Visit frankfamilyvineyards. com. 2014 Long Meadow Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, $55. Mostly Cab, with a touch of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah for originality. Deep cherry and blackberry. Already aged
five years so “drink now” applies here. Details at longmeadowranch.com. 2016 Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, $40. Martini has been producing Cab since the end of prohibition. Spectacular reds in almost all price points are its specialty. This one is a marriage of fruit, spice and cedar. Visit louismartini.com.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could be caught in a torrent of advice from well-meaning friends and colleagues this week. But remember, Lamb, you are at your best when you are your own inimitable self. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect strong efforts to get you to accept things as they are and not question them. But ignore all that and continue your inquiries until you’re sure you have all the answers you need. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Heavier than usual family and workplace duties compete for your time this week. Try to strike a balance so that you’re not overwhelmed by either. Pressures ease by week’s end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It’s a good time for the Moon Child to show off your uniquely inspired approach to the culinary skills — especially if they’re directed toward impressing someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might be happy about the re-emergence of a long-deferred deal. But don’t pounce on it quite yet. Time can change things. Be sure the values you looked for before are still there. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Try to rein in your super-critical attitude, even if things aren’t being done quite as you would prefer. Remember: What you say now could create an awkward situation later on.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you can expect on-thejob cooperation from most of your colleagues this week, some people might insist on knowing more about your plans before they can accept them. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating another way to do things is commendable. But you could find some resistance this week from folks who would rather stick with the tried-and-true than try something new. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You usually can keep your aim focused on your goal. But you might need to make adjustments to cope with unsteadiness factors that could arise over the course of the week. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) News arrives about a projected move. Be prepared to deal with a series of possible shifts, including starting and finishing times, and how much the budget will actually cover. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new relationship needs time to develop. Let things flow naturally. It could be a different story with a workplace situation, which might require faster and more focused attention. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Accept a compliment without trying to troll for any hidden reason beyond what was said. After all, don’t you deserve to be praised every now and then? Of course you do. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to weigh all possibilities before making a decision. You would be a fine judge, or even be a star in a jury room. © 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

North Coast Rep stages ‘The Sunshine Boys’ By Alexander Wehrung
SOLANA BEACH — Pulled from the stringy, sharply wry mind of the late Neil Simon comes the pathos-stuffed comedy that is “The Sunshine Boys,” which made its 1972 debut on the hallowed floorboards of the Broadway stage. Now it comes to the cozy theater-space that is North Coast Repertory in Solana Beach, with Lenny Wolpe and James Sutorius starring in the title roles. The plot of “The Sunshine Boys” concerns two vaudeville performers entering their twilight years: Willie Clark and Al Lewis, otherwise known as Lewis and Clark (geddit? Like the explorers). However, as time goes on, the longtime duo soon come to dislike one another and split up. Al retires whilst Willie tries to keep himself relevant by starring in various television commercials. Eventually, Willie’s nephew convinces him to reunite with Al for a CBS comedy special. Broadway and television actor Lenny Wolpe stars as Willie Clark. Though he had seen the movie adaptation of Neil Simon’s play as a young adult, Wolpe described this production as his first thorough exposure to the source material. “I’d worked with Jeff Moss a number of times, the director,” he said. “And last spring he asked me if I would like to do it. So that was the beginning of my journey. So, then I read the script and got familiar with it.” Wolpe estimated that he’s worked with Jeffrey B. Moss five to six times in the past. A past production helped set Wolpe on the path
MUSIC BY THE SEA
to playing a vaudevillian. “I’d done a show in New York a couple years ago, it was called ‘Old Jews Telling Jokes,’ it was a very scripted show, but it was based on a lot of sketches and jokes and everything. It was a big hit around, like, a year and a half. So that was my first big exposure to doing a show where you weren’t necessarily playing a character as an actor, but you were just there to do the rhythm of these jokes and sketches, and you did it eight times a week, and it wasn’t character-driven. It was about getting the laughs and exploring that kind of comedy.”
This production marks Wolpe’s first time working with James Sutorius, who plays Al Lewis. Wolpe called him “fantastic” and a treat to work with. “James and I, luckily, we’re in the ballpark, age-wise of these two characters. So ... and we’ve been in the business forever, and I think we both understand that.” He went on to explain that a major theme of the show is accepting when you have to “put your makeup in the drawer and not do it anymore. It’s tricky. I have friends and they don’t do theater anymore, because they go, ‘I just can’t remem-
ber the lines, and I’m afraid I won’t know them.’ They’ll still do television, or commercials. But that was a huge admission to just go, ‘I can’t do it anymore.’ And I think that’s what the show is about, is when do you decide you’re done, and face that.” “The Sunshine Boys” opens Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. It plays Wednesdays at 7 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m., and Sundays at 7 p.m. through Nov. 17. Weeknights, Wednesday and Saturday matinees are $52; Saturday evening and Sunday matinees are $57; Sunday night is $49.
