RANCHO SANTA FE — At R. Roger Rowe, grades one through five are having a stronger emphasis on computer science for the 20182019 school year. According to Kim Pinkerton, Rancho Santa Fe School District interim superintendent and K-5 principal, computer science is new to the rotation wheel of enrichment offerings. Pinkerton noted that the addition was made after careful reviewing and planning. “Computer science is a blend of all STEM categories involving science, technology, engineering and math,” she said. “Studying these disciplines gives students computational thinking, critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are used in nontechnology areas as well.” Pinkerton said the new addition to the rotation wheel will further enhance the R. Roger Rowe experience for students in these grade levels. “As the needs for data science, artificial intelligence, big data and machine learning grow, we want to provide our elementary students with a vertically aligned computer science curriculum that allows us to set mastery standards by grade level and gives our students the opportunity to be on a learning continuum,” Pinkerton said. “This instructional experience will give our students background knowledge in a growing field to help prepare them as they move on TURN TO WHEEL ON 16

Power, challenges of local newspapers By Carey Blakely

REGION — The fate of the local newspaper — often seen as an important entity struggling financially to stay afloat — has been receiving increased attention lately by experts tuned into the watchdog effects that local news coverage has on local government. A 2018 report released by the Social Science Research Network, for instance, reveals that when a local newspaper closes, the community it represents undergoes increased government inefficiency and waste. Furthermore, more extensive coverage of local elections leads to increased civic engagement and voter turnout, according to a 2015 Brookings Institution report. On the flip side, residents are less apt to vote for congressional races that receive limited coverage, which can lead to landslide victories and legislators less willing to compromise. While there are some places where print newspapers continue to thrive, particularly in areas where older adults live, the general trend is one of declining print circulation. The fact that the internet has completely shaken up the news industry is an understatement. Age plays a major factor in preferences for print versus digital news. A 2016 Pew Research Center survey found that only 5 percent of adults ages 18 to 29 often read a print newspaper for news compared to 48 percent of adults 65 and older. A print newspaper in Central Florida called The Villages Daily Sun covers news and events for a growing retirement community. Its weekday circulation of

REGION — Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II must stand trial on charges that he raped an unconscious 17-year-old girl in 2003, a judge ruled Oct. 15. Vista Superior Court Judge Harry Elias found that enough evidence was presented at a preliminary hearing to warrant a trial for the son of San Diego Chargers legend Kellen Winslow on charges of forcible rape and rape of an unconscious person. The alleged victim testified that she had a few drinks and went to a home in Scripps Ranch, where she was raped. Winslow II is already facing trial for allegedly kidnapping and raping two women in his hometown of Encinitas this year. In that case, Winslow II is accused of luring a 54-year-old transient — who was hitchhiking — into his Hummer for a ride, then raping her on March 17. Prosecutors also allege that Winslow II picked up a 58-year-old homeless woman that he knew from a prior encounter and offered to take her to have coffee on May 13, but instead took her to a secluded area and raped her, then threatened to kill her if she told anyone. A trial date for both cases is expected to be set on Oct. 30. The defendant faces life in prison if convicted. — City News Service

55,700 represents an increase of 169 percent since 2003. But over that same time period, weekday newspaper circulation across the U.S. has declined 43 percent, according to The New York Times. The Coast News — originally called The Beach News when Jim Kydd, who is still the publisher, launched the paper in 1987 — has experienced circulation changes that match the general trend nationwide. At its peak in 2007, The Coast News and its affiliate editions, Village & Valley News, Vista/San Marcos News and Rancho Santa Fe News, had a combined weekly print circulation of

80,000. Today Coast News Group circulates between 35,000 and 40,000 print newspapers a week, with the Inland Edition and Rancho Santa Fe News alternating every other week. The online version launched in 2001. Chris Kydd, the associate publisher of The Coast News, said, “We provide circulation that meets demand.” He stated, “Nothing will ever replace print in the sense that you can stick a printed newspaper ad on a fridge and it doesn’t go away, unlike the changing flashings of our screens.” Kydd connects that “permanence” with “credibility.” He elaborated, “We

are a brick-and-mortar company with people who put their names behind their work.” At the same time, Kydd acknowledged, “You have to be like a chameleon in this business because it’s a challenge to stay relevant.” He said the Coast News Group will continue adapting to online and social media platforms to deliver news the way people want it. He doesn’t seem too worried about the outlet’s future. “We have street cred. There are people living here who grew up reading The Coast News. They’re rooting for us to survive, and they come to us to be the ones to tell the stories that matter to them.”

Kydd said he feels “personally blessed by the connectedness” that The Coast News has fostered with the community during his career at the paper. Some want to safeguard local news and news reporting in general. Theodore Glasser, a professor of communications at Stanford University, told ABC News, “We need to view journalism in the same way that we view libraries and public schools, as absolutely essential to any prospering community.” Glasser explained how the content published by newspapers gets read by public officials and influences their behavior. And that, he said, is “the power of the press.”

REGION — Scripps Health on Oct. 23 installed three permanent drug take-back kiosks. Residents can drop off expired, unused and unwanted pills from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays at the kiosks, which are attached to Scripps' on-site pharmacies in Encinitas, La Jolla and the Hillcrest neighborhood. Roughly 54 million people have used prescription drugs like opioids for nonmedical reasons at least once, according to data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. In addition, 62 percent of teenagers who have taken prescription drugs recreationally say they got them from their parents’ medicine cabinets. This Saturday, Oct. 27, is Prescription Drug Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, local law enforcement agencies and county officials will host collection events for unwanted prescription drugs at 44 sites across the county. — City News Service

Bluff fencing gets blowback from residents

Realtors release a mixed bag

By Lexy Brodt

DEL MAR — The North County Transit District is pursuing a plan to install fencing along the Del Mar bluffs, with no small resistance from Del Mar residents. NCTD has received a grant from the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program to erect a continuous, 1.4-mile-long fence along the Del Mar Bluffs, as well as separate fences on bluffs in Encinitas and Oceanside. The cost estimate for all three portions is estimated at $1.68 million, which will be covered fully by the grant, according to NCTD media representative Kimberly Wall. The fencing is intended to “support re-vegetation and reduction in the occurrence of trespasser events,” according to an NCTD press release published in early September. Details of the project have not been finalized, and NCTD has not determined a timeline for when construction of the fence will begin. “It is our hope that the project will be completed by the end of 2019,” said Wall, in an email to The Coast News. A handful of Del Mar residents have responded by starting a petition to oppose the fencing. The petition was started on by active four-year resident Frank Stonebanks, and City Council candidates Dan Quirk and Terry Gaasterland. The petition has acquired about 400 signatures. “I’ve gotten hundreds and hundreds of emails and voicemails alike saying people would chain themselves to the tracks before allowing (fencing),” said Stonebanks, who promotes better bluff access and eventual transfer of the train tracks inland via a community Facebook group. Stonebanks said he became the “de facto” leader on the topic two years ago, after he was cited for trespassing while crossing the tracks by an NCTD enforcement officer. In the summer of 2016, NCTD had assigned nine law enforcement officers to patrol the tracks in order to address ongoing safety concerns. The fencing project is NCTD’s latest effort to keep the bluffs safe, after a series of recent bluff collapses have raised questions about their viability. City Councilman Dave Druker, a member of the NCTD’s board of directors, said that fencing might not be the right solution. “There may be some other ways that we can solve that,” he said, referring to bluff-related safety concerns. Druker said the city is “working diligently” to create bluff access in Del Mar. There is currently only one legal crossing at 15th street. He said the city is considering crossings at 8th and 11th streets. According to Mayor Dwight Worden, the city was contacted about the fencing before NCTD’s announcement, but “they didn’t reach out to us to discuss it,” he said. Worden said the topic will be agendized at the Nov. 19 City Council meeting, where the council will discuss the fencing project and solicit public input. “We will be investigating all of our options,” Worden said.

Helen Woodward kicks off Home 4 the Holidays with giving event By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The 19th annual Blue Buffalo Home 4 the Holidays kicked off in Rancho Santa Fe on Oct. 8 bringing more than 25 animal rescue groups on the West Coast to pick up Blue Buffalo pet food at Helen Woodward Animal Center. It was a scene of “giving” at the center, with rescue organizations picking up 1,500 pounds of pet food to bring back to feed homeless pets. According to Public Relations and Communications Director Jessica Gercke, every year since 1999, the center’s Home 4 the Holidays campaign encourages shelters all over the world to inspire people to “adopt” instead of “shop” during the holiday season. “Blue Buffalo did a really exciting thing with a major food drop of Blue Buffalo food,” she said. “They sent out two gigantic trucks, one out here to Helen Woodward Animal Center and one out to Animal Haven in New York City.” Gercke adding that they dropped off more than 100,000 pounds of dog and cat food. From there, Helen Woodward

and Animal Haven passed out the food to local shelters, which will be needing the food during the busy holiday season. “The main reason that Home 4 the Holidays came into play was that we found that this is the No. 1 time of year that people bring new animals into the home — it used to be that shops and shelters would shut their doors because they didn’t want people make impulsive purchases,” Gercke said. “But what we find instead is that if you ask people to adopt, they’re actually going in, and they’re talking to people who work in the field of adoption.” In turn, these staff members know how to help future pet parents select the right pet. Gercke went on to say that because of this, fewer animals come back as opposed to people going to pet shops to buy a dog or cat that doesn’t fit into their lifestyle and end up relinquishing them. Home 4 the Holidays has worked with more than 4,000 rescue groups around the world and helped place more than 14 million animals into forever homes since

its inception. “It is a beautiful, successful program that is celebrated globally,” she said. “And over the past number of years, Blue Buffalo has been our sponsor, and they have supported the program.” She said the pet food manufacturer has partnered with Helen Woodward since 2013. A Home 4 the Holidays website is also available to those living anywhere in the world. Only a click away, people can find out what places are participating and go to those shelters and rescue organizations to adopt during the holiday season. The Home 4 the Holidays campaign ends on Jan. 2, 2019. “Blue Buffalo helps shelters as we head into the holiday season and this is just a nice way to kick off the holidays,” she said. “It’s also a nice way to unite everybody who gets in on this campaign to help find orphaned animals their forever homes.” For more information about Home 4 the Holidays and participating rescue groups and shelters, visit

Area hosting top women’s skateboarders By Carey Blakely

ENCINITAS — The world’s largest all-female skateboarding event, Exposure, will showcase the talents of skateboarding girls and women from around the country and globe on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 at Encinitas Community Park. The seventh-annual competition expects about 150 skaters and has a $60,000 prize purse. Proceeds will benefit survivors of domestic violence at Community Resource Center’s shelter, Carol’s House. Skateboarders from across the U.S. as well as countries like Australia, Brazil, South Africa, France, Colombia and Japan will compete in vert (ramp), bowl and street categories. Both professionals and amateurs will participate but compete

separately. The event is organized by Exposure Skate, an Encinitas nonprofit that seeks to empower girls and women through skateboarding while instilling compassion through community service. Girls in the Skate Rising Program, for instance, divide their time between learning skateboarding tricks and making items like support kits for the homeless. Exposure’s founder and president, Amelia Brodka, who is also a professional skateboarder, said, “I’m excited to get this global community of skateboarders together, where girls in all these different disciplines can gather. The energy that creates is just incredible.” It’s rare to have a skateboarding event that includes girl amateurs,

that offers contests for vert, bowl and street, and that is exclusively for females. Exposure hits all three marks, providing an event that is groundbreaking on multiple fronts. Brodka said that last year’s crowd exceeded 5,000 people. Jordyn Barratt, who has competed at Exposure since 2013, said, “It’s an amazing event that helps boost women’s skateboarding.” Barratt made her pro debut in 2016 and last year placed first in the bowl competition and second in the vert contest. This will be the first year that the competition takes place over two days. On Saturday, amateur girls in the 14 and under and 15 and over categories will compete in street and bowl contests. On Sunday, the amateurs will battle it out in vert, while

the professional skateboarders will vie for top honors in their respective disciplines of bowl, vert and street. The event is free to attend and will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, and Sunday, Nov. 4, at Encinitas Community Park. In addition to watching the competitions, families can participate in free yoga and skate clinics, get autographs in the vendor village and enjoy shopping and games. Girls are invited to participate in the Skate Rising service activity aimed at supporting the children of Carol’s House. A detailed event schedule can be found at https://exposureskate. org/exposure-2018/. Donations can be made at https : / /exposureskate. org/donation/ or on-site at the event.

REGION — The median price of a single-family home in San Diego County was up 5.8 percent last month, compared to September 2017, while sales of existing homes dropped 15.6 percent, according to figures released Oct. 22 by the California Association of Realtors. The median price of a single-family home in San Diego County was $640,000 in September, up from $605,000 during the same month a year ago, according to CAR. The median price was down 3 percent from $660,000 in August. Median home prices rose 4.2 percent statewide compared to a year ago, according to CAR. The statewide median price was $578,850 in September, up from $555,400 in September 2017 but down 2.9 percent from $596,410 in August. “Price appreciations have slowed in the last few months and inventory has risen considerably since June when the statewide median price hit a new peak,” said CAR Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “Buyers are becoming increasingly concerned about market developments and are reluctant to purchase at the prevailing market price. As such, the deceleration in price growth will likely continue in coming months.” While prices were on the rise, home sales showed a year-over-year decline, CAR reported. Home sales dipped 15.6 percent in San Diego County in September, compared to the same month last year and 21.5 percent between August and September. Sales statewide dropped 12.4 percent in September, compared to the same month last year and 4.3 percent between August and September. “The housing market continued to deteriorate and the decline in sales worsened as interest rates remained on an upward trend,” CAR President Steve White said. — City News Service

Can’t find any affordable housing? Blame SANDAG By Duncan McFetridge and Keari Platt

San Diego County politicians love to lament the lack of affordable housing. The housing crisis has become an excuse to rubber-stamp sprawl-style mega-developments far from jobs and cities. The best way to meet the growing demand for housing is to build complete, interconnected transit, bike, and walk systems that support housing in urban centers. What does this have to do with the San Diego Association of Governments? SANDAG oversees, among other things, transportation planning for all of San Diego County. The agency brazenly ignores state mandates to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, committing repeatedly to expand freeways over investing in reliable transit that would make our cities work for everyone. We need a radical change in approach, a true commitment to constructing infill housing. But for this effort to succeed, this housing will need to be served by complete transit, bike, and walk systems. Most developers prefer to build single-family homes on rezoned farmland because their main priority is making money. But it’s not the job of our elected officials to please developers. Government should be laser-focused on making housing more affordable. SANDAG recently started the process of putting together its next Regional Transportation Plan. The plan will be a roadmap for the future of transportation throughout the county. State law pushes SANDAG

to plan for a housing/transportation mix that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and incentivizes people to walk, bike, and embrace public transit. Will our “leaders” once again delude themselves into believing that wider freeways and sprawling roadways will improve quality of life and drive down housing costs? The first signs are not encouraging. SANDAG considered three concept alternatives at its latest meeting, broad sketches of how the transit/housing balance might be addressed in the coming years. None of the scenarios prioritized improving transit in a systematic way that would demonstrate its effects on housing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. To make an educated choice about how to proceed, we need to see that model. Someone should tell SANDAG that our region will continue to be plagued by long commutes, degraded natural areas, and sky-high housing costs until the agency is willing to try something new. Oh wait — someone has. The state courts have repeatedly told San Diego County and SANDAG that they need to take a second look at regional plans and far-flung housing developments that induce sprawl. A recent appellate court decision found the County’s plan for managing emissions was inadequate. Indeed, the courts have consistently concluded that our county government and regional planning agency are stuck in 1950s car culture when

they should be looking forward to 2050. What’s so significant about 2050? That’s the year our state has targeted for reducing emissions by 80 percent below 1990 levels. Many California communities are making tremendous progress toward this goal at least in part by investing in transit. But SANDAG keeps looking for ways to get out of its obligation to be part of the climate solution, even as extended drought and ferocious wildfires plague our region. For example, a planned expansion of San Diego International Airport includes plans for a bigger parking lot. Instead of envisioning a modern future where travelers could take state-of-theart Coaster and Sprinter rail lines to a downtown intermodal transit center, our regional agencies continue to plan for a car-centric future. How hard would it be for SANDAG to take a realistic look at making San Diego a more livable place? Is it possible more of us would take transit if we knew it would be reliable and less expensive than driving? Could we finally tackle our affordable housing crisis if we stop approving sprawl developments and get serious about promoting infill? We’ll never know unless we try. Duncan McFetridge is director and Keari Platt is a member of the board of directors of the Cleveland National Forest Foundation, the lead organization in a landmark climate change lawsuit against SANDAG.

s Election Day approaches this fall, it is reasonable to ask not only who would likely vote on Nov. 6 but who has been voting for most of the last month. That’s because mail ballots went out weeks ago, while electronic voting centers in some counties have also been open for weeks. Those procedural changes, adopted in as-yet-unproven hopes of increasing voter turnout, don’t change the fundamental question of who will actually decide the many ballot proposition questions and other races before voters this fall. The answer has not changed much in decades: The electorate will be whiter, older and wealthier than the overall populace of California. That means it may be slightly more conservative than the general population might like, which could make some outcomes surprising. Here are some findings from a thorough survey of registered voters by the non-partisan Public Policy Institute of California: Almost eight out of 10 eligible Californians were already registered to vote six weeks before registration closed Oct. 22. Of the 19 million registered voters, 44.4 percent were Democrats, up slightly from the last mid-term election in 2014. An additional 25.1 percent were Republicans, but the GOP was surpassed by voters who declined to state a party preference, now accounting for 25.5 percent of the electorate. This represents a small gain for Democrats and a significant (more than 3 percent) loss for Republicans, possibly one result of the extreme unpopularity of President Trump in California.

california focus thomas d. elias With no-party-preference voters, the PPIC found, Democrats have an edge even larger than their 19 percent lead among voters declaring for the major parties. Fully 47 percent of those self-defined independents leaned toward voting Democratic, while only 18 percent say they usually prefer Republicans. But there are large parts of the state where those numbers don’t reflect reality. Democrats tend to be concentrated in Los Angeles County and the San Francisco Bay Area, homes to 56 percent of registered Democrats, while 63 percent of Republicans live in Orange or San Diego counties and the Central Valley. This goes far toward explaining why Republicans fare much better in congressional and legislative races in those areas, while getting almost no seats elsewhere. The statewide distribution of likely voters, defined as people with a history of voting often or saying they are determined to vote this time, pretty much follows party registration. Just short of half of all registered voters live in the two areas most dominated by Democrats, while 43 percent of likely voters reside in the Orange-San Diego county, Central Valley and Inland Empire regions. The PPIC also found that the while millennials (aged 22-37), generation Xers (aged 38-53) and baby boomers (ages 54-72)

account for 90 percent of California voters, the more senior so-called “silent generation’ (ages 73 and up) votes in the highest numbers, proportionately. Fully 88 percent of the oldest age grouping surveyed were registered to vote, while just 60 percent of millennials signed up. But baby boomers, with 39 percent of the state’s likely voters, will cast more ballots than any other age group. Put them together with their seniors, who make up 13 percent of likely voters, and more than half of all ballots will be cast by folks aged 54 and above. That’s far higher than the average Californian’s age, 35.4. The differential of almost 20 percent between average ages of citizens and voters is the highest ever. All these numbers help make some contests and campaigns unpredictable. But they tend to favor, for example, proponents of Proposition 6, which would repeal last year’s gasoline tax increase, as those on fixed incomes — a high percentage of the “silent generation” and some baby boomers — can be expected to favor repeal. The numbers also may portend a weak performance by state Sen. Kevin de Leon in his all-Democrat contest with incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who at 85 may not look as old to many baby boomers and “silents” as de Leon would hope. But those same numbers won’t do much to help any Republican seeking statewide or legislative office. Email Thomas Elias at For more Elias columns, visit

Spooktacular Halloween event pays tribute to founder By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Spooktacular Halloween Dressage Show and Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest are paying tribute to the memory of Lisa Blaufuss on Oct. 27 and Oct. 28. Blaufuss succumbed to her seven-year battle with breast cancer in March. She was the owner of CrackerJack Productions and founder of the Spooktacular Halloween Dressage Show and the Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest — both events take place every fall at the Del Mar Horse Park. The dog costume contest happens over the weekend of the horse show. The event will also serve as a fundraiser. A portion of the proceeds raised will go to Blaufuss’ daughter, Ciera, for her college education savings. A donation will also be made to White Rock Horse Rescue in Yucca, where Blaufuss’ horse, Khaos, is now retired. This year, Blaufuss’ close friend Kim Stordahl, a highly accomplished dressage rider and trainer, stepped in as the Spooktacular show manager. Friends of Lisa board member and Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest organizer Meredith Grimm, a Rancho Santa Fe resident, said that this is the Spooktacular Halloween Dressage Show’s sixth year. “Kim is honoring and carrying on Lisa’s legacy by producing the show this year,” Grimm said. “The dressage community is excited to participate and honor their dear friend, Lisa, by supporting her daughter and by keeping Lisa in our memory and hearts during yet another ‘Spooktacular’ horse show event and Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest.” Grimm, who is an oncology nurse and patient navigator, said

she connected with Blaufuss in the horse community. She went on to say Blaufuss was affectionately known to all as Wonder Woman. “We are honoring Lisa for being a breast cancer champion, horse show event creator, mother and wife, and dear friend,” Grimm said. “She was tenacious and worked tirelessly to create the perfect show experience for the dressage community, often while actively undergoing cancer treatment.” She added, “Lisa never burdened anyone with her daily challenges and remained incredibly positive throughout her cancer journey. Even on her toughest days, she would go out of her way to give of herself to others and make

people feel important or special.” According to Grimm, the triple-rated, two-day dressage show expanded to include a dog costume contest for riders to take a break from the riding competition and dress up their dogs. Those entering their dogs in the contest do not need to be equestrians — anyone can join in on the fun. Categories for the Howl’in Dog Costume Contest include the scariest costume, funniest costume, cutest costume, and the owner/ dog lookalike contest. Additionally, this year they will award the Lisa Blaufuss “Best in Show” prize, which will be the judges’ choice. It was Grimm and Blaufuss who came up with the dog costume


idea a few years back. “Lisa and I thought a dog costume contest could expand the fun and competition beyond just the horses and riders,” Grimm said. “Lisa loved Halloween and costumes, so we thought why not a dog costume contest, too?” Grimm said every year the dog costume event grows and expands in popularity even with the non-riding dog community. Kimberli Weeks, show manager of the Oct. 28 Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest, is the owner and operator of Racepacepups in San Diego. Weeks, an avid marathon runner, will make a beeline to the New York Marathon after the event.

“On the day of the costume contest, we will have a canine demo by David Greene of Performance K9 Training who has represented the USA on four world teams,” she said. “The nonprofit Thrive Animal Rescue, who is participating in our show this year, will be there in an effort to find forever homes for dogs in need.” Grimm said the weekend show is generously sponsored by local companies, veterinarians and pet service providers, horse and dog alike. She went on to say how their supporters have enriched the event each year. “What makes our show so special is the sense of community and collaboration we have developed with Friends of Lisa and the Southern California dressage community,” she said. The weekend event kicks off Oct. 27, when riders will take part in the Valor and Milo Costume Musical Freestyle. The next day is the Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest. On Oct. 28, participants and spectators are asked to wear “pink” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink Friends of Lisa hats will also be available for purchase, as another fundraising effort. “Our mission is to deliver a triple-rated, competitive show and costume contest that provides a weekend of fun,” Grimm said. “It made Lisa happy to see everyone enjoying themselves, and we want to keep that fun spirit moving forward.” To learn more about the Spooktacular Halloween Dressage Show, visit and for the Howlin’ Dog Costume Contest visit http://friendsoflisa. org/howlin-dog/ or

Celebrating Lake Hodges Dam’s 100th Historical Society to honor key moment in development of Rancho Santa Fe Special to The Coast News

met with communities that benefitted from the development of the dam and decided upon a series of celebrations. The first celebration held by the Solana Beach Historical Society happened on Oct. 6, the second one will be hosted by the Del Mar Historical Society on Nov. 7, and the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society has one tentatively planned for Dec. 1. Today, the dam is owned by the city of San Diego, however, it is not certain at this time whether the city will host a noticeable celebration, according to the historical society. “RSFHS will be part of the heralding of the centennial because we wouldn’t be, without it,” the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society Marking the milestone To mark the milestone, said. “Celebration level is the Rancho Santa Fe His- still in the planning stages” torical Society has been planning for the 2018 cen- How it began tennial celebration of Lake The historical society Hodges and the completion archives report that Ranof the monumental dam.

And according to the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society and its archives, 100 years ago in the fall of 1918 the Lake Hodges Dam was completed, turning the desert canyon into a garden paradise which later became Rancho Santa Fe. Without the dam, many local communities would have no fresh water available to them. Additionally, all of San Diego County depends on water from other sources, so having this source has saved the land values of the county, the historical society said.

munity. Therefore, along with the dam, a reservoir was built in Rancho Santa Fe to support the community, as well as make water available to neighboring communities. “Our intentions have been looked on favorably by the Rancho Santa Fe Association and support is also being shown by the city of San Diego’s Public Utilities management, owners and operators of the Lake Hodges Reservoir and Dam,” said John Vreeburg, president of the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society in a press release. Also, according to the press release penned by Vreeburg: “in 1916 a group of forward-thinking developers commenced construction of the innovative, multiple arch structure. At the instigation of the renowned Col. Ed Fletcher, built and underwritten by the Santa Fe Railway, an adjunct of the Atchison Topeka and the Santa Fe Railroad, in one dramatic venture the property owners solved the question of eucalyptus trees unsuited for cutting into railroad ties. “The immediate benefit to the Santa Fe Railway

was to increase its carloads of oranges and other produce shipped east and our citrus groves quickly expanded. Plans were soon laid for the Village of Rancho Santa Fe. By now, we all know well the succeeding story as our community and those of several others sprang up and have used the water from Lake Hodges over the past 100 years for homes, ranches, agriculture, golf and other recreational purposes.” The celebration will lead to other tributes to people, plans, organizations, and buildings that quickly ensued after 1918 and the advent of the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant in 1928, the historical society said. A magical place, all visitors and residents of San Diego County should take time to visit the beautiful Lake Hodges recreation area for boating, sightseeing, and just beautiful natural surroundings, according to the historical society. Keep in mind, though, that it is only open to the public for one more month this year and will not open again until spring.

REGION — Opponents of a controversial development near Merriam Mountain submitted well over 100,000 signatures as part of a referendum to rescind the Board of Supervisors’ recent approval of the project. Needing just 68,000 signatures of county registered voters, signature gatherers across the county collected 117,291 signatures and submitted them to the Registrar of Voters on Oct. 17. The petition drive takes aim at the Newland Sierra project, approved Sept. 25 by the Board of Supervisors, and is spearheaded by the Golden Door Spa, one of the project’s chief opponents. If the registrar verifies the signatures, the County Board of Supervisors could choose to rescind its approval or place the item on the next possible ballot, which would be in 2020. Newland Communities, the developer, said that it would issue a statement on Oct. 17 about the signature drive results. About 250 paid signature-gatherers collected roughly 100,000 names at $8 each, a consultant who spearheaded the signature drive said. The remaining signatures were obtained by volunteers, according to reports in the San Diego Union-Tribune. The campaign began on Sept. 28 and ended on Oct. 11. The group then counted and checked the names before submitting them to the registrar, and estimates that 80 percent of them are valid. The Board of Supervisors on Sept. 25 voted 4-0 in favor of the Newland Sierra project, a 2,135-unit development just north of San Marcos and west of Hidden Meadows and Escondido. Supporters argue that the project will help ease the county’s housing crisis and pay for badly needed infrastructure in the unincorporated area north of San Marcos. Project opponents pointed to the project’s incompatibility with the county’s general plan, which calls for 99 homes and retail in the area. They said that if the county allowed the development to go through, then the years of development behind the general plan, which was updated in 2011, were for naught. Others pointed to the

increased traffic, potential fire hazard and the impacts to the character of the area as reasons to oppose the project. Since the approval, opponents and supporters have waged a battle over the signature drive. Newland said paid gatherers misrepresented the facts while project opponents say Newland had hired “blockers” to keep people from signing. Newland Sierra said it did hire “truth team” members to counteract misinforming signature collectors. This scene played out across the county, as paid signature gatherers were reported in Chula Vista, San Diego and other areas far away from the project’s epicenter. “The entire signature gathering process has made a travesty of truth and democracy,” Rita Brandin, Newland Communities vice president, said in a statement. “The East Coast billionaires of the Golden Door and their out-of-town signature gatherers fraudulently collected these signatures by telling falsehoods about our approved Newland Sierra plan, including the ridiculous claims that it would raise people’s taxes, that we are building a casino, and that the project encompasses 430,000 acres of land. With what they were claiming, we were even tempted to sign. “Newland Sierra is a much better plan than what the Golden Door wants to keep in place. Instead of estate lots only the wealthy can afford, along with millions of square feet of office and big box retail, we will instead provide much-needed homes that San Diego workers can afford, especially our young people,” Brandin’s statement said. “What the out-of-town signature gatherers never stated is that our plan for Newland Sierra leaves 80% of the property undeveloped, results in less water use, better fire protection and fewer peak hour traffic trips than the plan Golden Door supports leaving in place. “Unfortunately, this is an abuse of our democratic process with the out-of-town Golden Door billionaires funding and running this effort. They even paid off local, non-profit, anti-housing groups to be their front and collect signatures for them. This was not a local citizen-led effort.”

‘Outrageous’: Neighbor clashes with Oceanside deputy mayor over complaints By Aaron Burgin and Jordan Ingram

OCEANSIDE — Sometimes being neighbors and being neighborly are two very different things. A Carlsbad-based attorney has alleged that her neighbor, Oceanside Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery, has illegitimately used his position in local office to expedite a bevy of personal complaints against his neighbors which has crossed the line into harassment. Lowery spoke exclusively to The Coast News, saying that the attacks on him are politically motivated, and that he, through his

complaints, is conveying concerns of not only his own, but of other neighbors around the vacation rental property. This story was first reported on Aug. 31 by Adam Lowery Racusin for ABC 10News. Alexandra McIntosh told 10News that she purchased a home located on Wisconsin Avenue in 2012 as part of her retirement

plan. McIntosh said she purchased the home as a full-time, short-term vacation rental to help “offset the house payments and help the city of Oceanside make money,” according to her interview with 10News. The North County resident added that she plans to move in to the house as a resident upon retirement. Since then, McIntosh has been thrust into a constant battle with the city over a variety of complaints filed by Lowery, who lives directly behind McIntosh on Alberta Avenue.

The Coast News has obtained copies of 15 city code violation complaints dating back to 2015 with Lowery listed as the complainant. Lowery’s complaints range from graffiti and overwatered flowerbeds to “washing an abundance of cars” and an at-large rooster. The series of complaints were directed at a number of individuals, including McIntosh, who live in the area surrounding Lowery’s home. In May, McIntosh received a letter from Airbnb regarding her listing. Lowery had complained to

the online vacation rental company about McIntosh’s home: “Your manager/owner of the home directly behind me is unwilling to consider the neighbors when the property is in use. I’ve asked the Oceanside Police Department, Code Enforcement, City manager and City Attorney to deal with the noise, whether that’s dogs barking all day or people partying all night,” according to the letter. Lowery later states, “ … I’ve had no successful contact with the ownTURN TO COMPLAINTS ON 16

RSF lawyer gives talk on First Amendment By Steve Horn

SAN MARCOS — On Oct. 8, the San Diego Law Library and the San Diego County Library’s San Marcos branch played host to a 101-level presentation on First Amendment issues. That presentation was given by Carla DiMare, a Rancho Santa Fe-based attorney who runs her own law firm. It was part of the broader Know Your Rights series put together by the San Marcos library branch and the Know the Law series convened by the San Diego Law Library’s North County Law Library branch housed in Vista. DiMare gave her presentation mostly in the form of posing questions about the hot national legal and political issues of the day. She asked whether certain activities are legally protected under the U.S. Constitution’s First amendment. Topics included kneeling during the National Anthem during a National Football League pregame ceremony, whether the President of the U.S. can block a U.S. citizen on Twitter, if an employer can fire an employee for his or her political activism outside of the workplace and more. A broader takeaway: the First Amendment gives a broad suite of rights for U.S. citizens, but it does not apply on private property or privately owned venues or if one signs away his or her First Amendment rights in the form of a contract. In legal circles, this is known as the time, place and manner principle of the First Amendment, meaning it has broad applicability but is not universal in scope. The First Amendment protects free speech, but also guarantees a free press and freedom to assemble peaceably, a right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, freedom to associate with a religion and also a freedom against religious imposition onto the citizenry by the state apparatus. DiMare’s presentation focused primarily on free speech matters, as well as the right to petition the government, squeezing the most she could into the roughly single hour allotted to her. DiMare said that she believes that the “forum went well because the audience seemed interested and engaged in a discussion about how free speech protection is currently shaping our country and supporting the way we live and exchange ideas.” DiMare also paid homage to the role played by the San Diego Law Library in bringing the presentation together. The law library exists as a resource to the public under California state law, as dictated by the California Business and Professions Code’s Sections 6300 - 6363, which mandates that each county in the state have a law library available to the public. Only 12 other law libraries of the sort exist throughout the U.S., accord-

ing to the website “The San Diego Law Library and the San Marcos Library are committed to helping people learn and solve problems,” DiMare said. “I have seen people at the law library who are faced with major life problems, such as an eviction or loss of a pension, and they have nowhere else to turn for help. The library gives them hope.” Di Mare came to Rancho Santa Fe by way of DiMare Boston, Massachusetts. She earned an undergraduate from Boston College and got her law degree from New England Law Boston, which is the oldest law school in the U.S. founded exclusively for women. On the First Amendment, DiMare told The Coast News that she cherishes the protections it provides, but also believes that some abuse the spirit of the law and tarnish it for the general public. “Judicial decisions about the First Amendment generally reflect an enormous respect for protecting free speech, freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble and the right to petition the government,” DiMare posited. “I find the First Amendment and its free speech component amazing and immensely valuable because it is a catalyst for debate and discussion which shapes our world and how we live. What’s extremely troubling is watching people on the news abuse these rights and abuse each other during protests and riots.” And in explaining the focus of her law practice, DiMare said that social justice issues always sit at the epicenter of the cases she decides to take on and the clients with which she decides to work. “I am a gracious warrior who fights for worthy causes,” DiMare said. “Something meaningful to my client and the community as a whole is really interesting.”

REGION — As the school year gets further underway and the election draws nearer, San Dieguito Union High School District faces turmoil over the direction of its leadership. School board candidate Lea Wolf, who is running for Trustee Area 5, filed a police report alleging theft of her campaign signs, cyberattacks on her websites and harassing emails. Wolf told The Coast News that more than 150 of her campaign signs “have been stolen, removed, and trashed” and that her four websites were hacked and infected daily with viruses over a two-week period. She also shared that she has received anonymous emails “bullying me with threats and stating that my signs are an ‘eyesore’ to the community.” One email addressed to Wolf, that was included in the police report, stated, “You talk like one of those witches from Frisco or New York” and asked, “Are you from the Middle East?” Wolf lived in Israel from age 6 to 18. Another email questioned Wolf, “How dare you have the nerve to trash up our community (Pac Highlands Ranch) with your obnoxious signs?” Video footage Wolf shared shows a busy street corner in Carmel Valley, with campaign signs for other political candidates in the ground and visible — but her signs tossed on top of bushes out of view. A screenshot from the Teachers for San Dieguito Facebook page shows a person alleging that some of Wolf’s signs were illegally placed and offering to remove them. Amy Flicker, a candidate running for Trustee Area 1 against incumbent Maureen Muir, wrote in response, “Love our teachers!” Flicker told The Coast News that her comment wasn’t intended as a response to the offer to

remove Wolf’s signs, “but looking at it, I can see how that can be read that way.” She said she was commenting generally to the complimentary posts above it and that her “complete novice utilization of social media is showing!” According to county campaign records, as of Oct. 3 the San Dieguito Faculty Association (teachers’ union) PAC had contributed $3,500 each, or $10,500 total, to the campaigns of Flicker, Kristin Gibson and Rhea Stewart and had spent an additional $4,228 on campaign expenses, like signs and postage. In 2016, the union contributed $37,219 total to the campaigns of Beth Hergesheimer and Joyce Dalessandro, who currently serve on the board but are not up for re-election this year. During public comment at the San Dieguito board meeting on Oct. 11, the union PAC Assistant Treasurer Duncan Brown singled out board member John Salazar for voting against the 12.5-percent pay raise for teachers in 2016 and accused Salazar of spreading misinformation about teacher compensation. San Dieguito teachers are the highest paid in the county, with an average salary exceeding $100,000. Salazar, who is not running for re-election, wrote in a statement to The Coast News, “I’m most proud of voting against the 12.5% (retroactive) pay raise, which also required the district to have the highest paid teachers regardless of performance. No wonder our district has deep deficits, overcrowded classes, and more and more unhappy families. “I strongly oppose tenure, and even having public employees unions. The union bullies and buys off board members. Hopefully someday the taxpayers will wake up and take back the school system.” At the Oct. 11 meeting, the board voted unanimously to hire

Dr. Robert Haley as the new permanent superintendent. Last month the district announced its intention to hire Haley pending contract negotiations. Haley’s contract is for two years and eight months, starting on Nov. 1. He will receive an annual salary of $259,000, which is about 10 percent higher than former superintendent Eric Dill’s salary, and will be given — among other perks — $15,000 to relocate. When asked about the compensation package in light of the district’s deficit, Hergesheimer wrote, “As we conducted our search it became apparent that, in order to attract the caliber of leadership that we sought and that our community expects, we would need to be willing to pay more for an experienced superintendent.” Haley’s contract states that he must notify the board immediately if he’s selected to interview for a position with a different employer, but it does not state what penalties would be incurred should Haley fail to do so. Salazar strongly recommended that the district incorporate a financial penalty into the contract as an attempt to protect itself against the lack of notice that has been suspected of Dill, who informed the district of his plans to vacate the post on May 25. Hergesheimer, when questioned why the district did not include such penalty language in Haley’s contract, wrote, “We do not anticipate Dr. Haley leaving any time in the near future, and we have every expectation that he will honor the contract as written.” Haley will be the fourth permanent superintendent in eight years to lead San Dieguito. According to Salazar, none of the previous three fulfilled the full lengths of their contracts.

Can’t Say He Wasn’t Warned

An alert (or nosy) passerby called police on Oct. 10 after seeing staff through the window of a Natwest bank in Birmingham, England, hiding and cowering under their desks. Officers arrived at the bank in hopes of catching a robber red-handed, but instead were told the workers were participating in a team-building game of hide-and-seek. West Midlands Police Chief Inspector Dave Keen tweeted that, although the incident was a misunderstanding, the citizen made "the right call," reported Metro News. [Metro News, 10/10/2018]

Some people can get pretty territorial about their food. So it appeared in Colleton County, South Carolina, on Sept. 29, when Ryan Dean Langdale, 19, warned his 17-year-old cousin not to eat his salt and vinegar potato chips. "Do not touch my chips, or I'll shoot you," Langdale told his cousin, according to a sheriff's incident report. The Charleston Post and Courier reported Langdale then went into another room, retrieved a rifle and "the rifle went off," according to the sheriff's document. Langdale summoned help but told police his cousin had accidentally shot himself while cleaning the rifle. Officers didn't think the story held up: The pathway of the bullet through the victim's chest was "impossible" if he had mistakenly shot himself, said sheriff's Maj. J.W. Chapman. Sure enough, when the victim was questioned after undergoing surgery, he told officers the savory snacks were at the center of the dispute. Langdale surrendered on Oct. 10 and was charged with, among other crimes, attempted murder. [Charleston Post and Courier, 10/10/2018]

Compelling Explanations

Yury Zhokhov, 41, a factory worker in Donetsk, Russia, was found kneeling in a field in early October with a knife handle sticking out of the top of his head. Zhokhov was conscious, and when questioned by police, he revealed he had stuck the 8-inch blade in himself. He was having trouble breathing through his nose, he explained, and hoped to make another hole he could breathe through. But the knife became stuck, and he couldn't remove it. reports doctors at the local hospital were afraid to touch the knife for fear of killing Zhokhov or causing brain damage. "It was horrific," a hospital spokesperson told local media. X-rays showed the blade "exactly between the two hemispheres of the brain." Specialists were called and Zhokhov survived the surgery without apparent brain damage, although surgeons are concerned about infec-

Weird Science

In Olympic National Park in Washington, the mountain goat population has baaa-llooned to an unnatural 700 or more animals. The park is also becoming more popular with humans, which has led to an unsavory consequence: In their constant quest for salt and other minerals, the goats have developed a strong taste for human urine and sweat left behind by hikers and campers. Goats will lick clothing and paw at the ground where people have urinated or disposed of cooking water, making them a nuisance, according to the National Park Service. Popular Mechanics also reports that the increased likelihood of human-goat interactions has park officials worried, especially since a goat gored a hiker to death in 2010. The answer: Park officials are tagging, blindfolding and airlifting mountain goats to nearby Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, which should be more hospitable to their needs.

On Oct. 12, an Air India Express pilot guided a Boeing 737 up and away from Tiruchirappalli International Airport in Tamil Nadu, India -- but not ENOUGH up and away. As the plane took off shortly after midnight, it hit the top of a 5-foot-tall perimeter wall and destroyed a small landing guide tower. The Washington Post reported that, despite the audible collision, the pilot told the airport director the plane's systems were functioning normally and he was continuing toward Dubai, across the Indian Ocean. "But we found some parts of the plane, like an antenna, on the ground," the director said. Finally, about two hours into the flight, ground control convinced the pilot to return to India, where the plane landed in Mumbai. Indeed, there was a huge gash in the plane's underbelly, and mesh fencing was wrapped around the landing gear. All 130 passengers arrived unharmed and were booked on other flights, and the pilot and co-pilot have been grounded pending a review. [The Washington Post, 10/13/2018]

A MAJORITY of great white shark attacks are cases of mistaken identity.

Fears aside, chances of shark attack still very low By Carey Blakely

REGION — In the aftermath of a shark attack on a 13-year-old boy at Beacon’s Beach in Encinitas on Sept. 29, the public has been filled with horror and questions about how this could have happened and what can be done to prevent future attacks. DNA evidence has confirmed that a white shark — proverbially referred to as a “great white shark” — was responsible for the attack that seriously injured Keane Hayes, who was diving for lobster early in the morning.

‘Mistaken identity’

Geoff Shester, Ph.D., California campaign director and senior scientist at Oceana, said that most attacks by white sharks are cases of “mistaken identity.” In conditions of poor visibility, such as low light or murky water, Shester said that a white shark can be unsure whether a person is a prey animal, like a seal or seal lion. The white shark then takes a bite to find out. “It’s a massively powerful animal that can cause major damage or death with its bites, but it’s not intending to eat people,” Shester said. Humans do not have the blubber and high-energy fat that white sharks seek. National Geographic expressed similar ideas in an article, noting that great whites, “who are naturally curious, are ‘sample biting’ then releasing their victims rather than preying on humans. It’s not a terribly comforting distinction, but it does indicate that humans are not actually on the great white’s menu.”

Risk factors

Shester said that while the chance of getting bit by a shark is extremely unlikely, the higher-risk times are typically dawn and dusk when the water is darker. Murky or churned-up waters can likewise lead to low visibility that can cause sharks to confuse humans with prey. Furthermore, spear fishing and other activities that produce blood and other scents can attract sharks, which have a very sensitive sense of smell. In addition, Shester said the risk is higher in a place where there has been a previous attack, as it can demonstrate that it’s a “sharkier area.” Beaches that are more crowded are less likely to attract sharks, so it’s a good idea to stick with more human-populated

waters. Chris Lowe, director of Long Beach State University’s Shark Lab, pointed out a seasonal connection to shark attacks, noting that “people do need to be aware that the fall season is a time when more large juvenile and adult sharks may be moving along the coast.” Southern California is considered a nursery ground for white sharks, with juveniles moving into the region’s warmer waters from the south in the spring through early fall. Researchers have identified a seasonal distribution pattern of white sharks in California, with juveniles mainly found in Southern California and northern Mexico, where they primarily feed on fish and invertebrates. Adults are mostly distributed north of Point Conception, gathered around seal and other pinniped breeding grounds. Electronic tagging studies have revealed that a large number of white sharks, after foraging in California coastal waters in the fall, migrate over 1,000 miles to an area of the open ocean between Hawaii and Baja that’s been called the White Shark Café. Once assumed to be an ocean desert, nutrient-rich plant life too far below the ocean surface for satellites to detect has revealed a complex food chain that the sharks appear to be capitalizing on. Chance of attack

It’s important to remember, Shester explained, that we are at a much higher risk for injury or death from driving or walking to the beach or swimming in the water, which can lead to drowning, than from a shark attack. He likened the chances of getting bit by a shark to “winning the bad lottery.” An academic paper from 2015 titled “Reconciling predator conservation with public safety” by Francesco Ferretti, Salvador Jorgensen, Taylor K. Chapple, Giulio De Leo and Fiorenza Micheli calculated that in California a person “is 1817 times more likely to die by unintentional drowning than from a shark attack.” The researchers reported that 86 injurious attacks were attributed to white sharks along California’s coast between 1950 and 2013. Thirteen of those attacks were fatal. Ferretti and colleagues wrote, “Throughout this period,

there was an average of 1.37 attacks per year with an increasing trend, from an average of 0.9 attacks per year in the 1950s to about 1.5 attacks per year in the final 10 years.” However, they concluded that while the number of reported incidents of white shark attacks had risen over the years, the chances of an individual getting attacked by a white shark had greatly declined. In other words, it is safer now to swim in the California coastal waters than it was in 1950. The number of humans swimming and recreating in the water has increased significantly since the mid-1900s, thereby lowering the probability of a particular individual being attacked. The paper claimed that “the individual attack risk for ocean users has decreased by >91% over a 63year period (1950 to 2013).” The researchers found that surfers in California were attacked the most often, at 33 percent, of any recreational group. But when the attack rate was controlled for the number of people participating in a particular activity, abalone divers were found to be the most prone. Nonetheless, we’re talking slim odds. The researchers’ study of California found, “In 2013, the chances of a shark attack on an abalone diver were one in 1.44 million or close to 0.69 attacks for every million diving days. … For surfers, the chances were one in 17 million. Swimmers had the lowest chance of shark attack, with one attack for every 738 million beach visits. …” Shester said that we are swimming near great whites more often than we realize, just as when we’re on hiking trails we are passing near mountain lions that we don’t see. He noted, “99.9 percent of the time sharks are keeping away from us just as we are keeping away from them.” While the idea of encountering a great white shark is certainly terrifying, humans have to remind ourselves, as Shester put it, “We are not at the top of the food chain in the ocean.” Though we want to ensure our own safety and should take measures, Shester said we have to keep in mind that in the ocean we are visitors to a wild place, where the health of wildlife — including apex predators like white sharks — is of utmost ecological importance.

It’s scary how good party was


’m a pushover. The e-mail said I’d be a “celebrity” judge. Who can resist that title? I said, “Heck, yes,” tossed on my black hooded cape, and headed off to Carlsbad’s Hanover Beach Colony neighborhood Halloween Home Decorating contest. I was greeted by the most enthusiastic resident and absolute party maven, Tina Lentz. Tina is something of a legend around there. She decided the neighborhood should add a Halloween competition and party to her reputedly over-thetop Fourth of July and Christmas events. This woman knows how to throw a party, with floating witch hats in the pool, a five-foot-tall candelabra, punch with eyeballs and every woman in the neighborhood decked out in a prize-worthy witch’s costume. I really think anyone who puts in the time and effort to decorate, needs an appreciative audience to “oooh” and “aaaah.” I was delighted to be that audience. I am, however, a lame judge, wanting to give awards to every entry. A lot of people put a lot of work into more than a dozen impressively decorated homes, and we had a rough time narrowing down our choices to just three categories. A very creepy clown house nailed the scariest. But there was one all done up in a slick pirate theme complete with music, and another with so many spiders, you could feel them crawling down your back. Another had a fabulous, enormous spider draped over the garage and yet another had a skeleton surfer family having a day at the beach. Tina’s house had enormous jack-o-lanterns and a perfect “Hocus Pocus” style going on. All I can say is, if you cruise off Ponto Road along Leeward and Whitewater Streets, you will be suitably dazzled. I am definitely doing a drive-by in December, as well.

Annual trip to Ohio takes on new meaning

hit the road e’louise ondash


e pass right by and don’t even know it — the farm that had been in my paternal grandmother’s family for many generations. We see the Wooly Pig Farm Brewery sign and can smell the aroma that tells us the proprietors are hard at work, but we are on a mission and have no time to stop for a beer. The single-lane road changes to a gravel drive, then a sign that tells us we have arrived at Bowman Cemetery. The small plot of damp, leafy land holds about 40 occupants; several are my ancestors — members of the Norman family who have been in central Ohio’s Coshocton County (current population 47,000) for more than 150 years. Most of the tombstones are well worn, but we are able to decipher some of those that bear the name of Norman. I’d never heard of Coshocton County and knew little about my paternal grandmother’s family until a recently discovered second cousin in Oklahoma sent me the fruits of her

family tree research. My husband, Jerry, and I decided to visit Coshocton County during our annual autumn pilgrimage to Ohio. Armed with my cousin’s information, diligent research by my brother-in-law, Ken, and few expectations, we headed south from Youngstown. Expecting mostly a day of sightseeing, we instead discovered two family cemeteries, a wealth of information in the genealogy room at the Coshocton Library, and our ancestors’ farm. We find the first family cemetery on the private land of Bob McKenna, a businessman who owns several stores that cater to tourists who come to enjoy bucolic Coshocton. “We discovered the cemetery when we were building our home in 1990,” McKenna explains in between making dozens of box lunches for a tour group. “We saw a few tombstones sticking out of the ground a few inches — the cemetery had been covered over. So while the construction crew is busy pouring footings, my wife and I are poking the ground with poles, trying to locate all the graves.” McKenna says they uncovered about 40 tombstones by hand, and he kindly allows us to explore the small cemetery in his side yard on his hilltop property. Most tombstone inscriptions are partially obliterated, but we find several that tell

on it.” The clapboard farmhouse, in need of paint, was built in the 1930s, Ely says, and he and his wife plan to build their new home just to the left. A brewmaster who has lived and worked worldwide, Ely grew up in this area. His wife, raised on the farm next door, wanted to return. Ely and his brother-in-law had their eyes on the Norman farm for some time, but owner Ron Norman was reluctant to sell. (Norman and his mother had worked the farm since the sudden death of his father when Norman was 14.) The opportunity to buy the property arose after Norman’s death in late 2013 — a new start with a new family. As we chat, I can tell that Ely loves the land and will be a good caretaker.

A rts &Entertainment Filmmaker honored at San Diego film festival By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — On Oct. 13, Escondido-based film director William Wall won the Best Local Film award for his movie “Daisy Belle” at the San Diego International Film Festival’s Filmmaker Awards Show and Party held at the Westin San Diego Gaslamp Hotel. An 11-minute computer-animated short, which also makes use of real-life miniature objects, the plot of “Daisy Belle” centers on a human, Daisy Belle, who has passed away and is being mourned for by a robot. With Daisy Belle having died, the robot realizes that its sole purpose — to serve and care for Daisy Belle — has gone by the wayside and the robot struggles through an existential crisis. Wall, who has lived in San Diego County nearly his whole life other than a short stint living in Maine, grew up in the East County area. In an interview on the sidelines of the film festival in the immediate aftermath of winning the award, Wall expressed surprise at winning the award, saying it sits as among the most prestigious prizes he has won so far during his directorial career. “I never expect to win,” he said. “But particularly when you see the other films, which I did today and they were all so well done, so of course I didn’t expect to win. When you go in with low expectations, it’s hard to walk away disappointed.” The San Diego International Film Festival was the first time Wall had ever had one of his films screen, let alone win a prize. It is not the first prize-winning rodeo for Wall and his films, however, despite his modesty, and “Daisy Belle” has screened throughout the world, including in places such as Greece, Belgium, Ukraine, Norway, Sweden and Mexico . Wall has won multiple awards at the San Diego Film Awards for “Daisy Belle,” as well, an

awards ceremony for local filmmakers at which he was nominated for seven awards and took home five. “Daisy Belle” has also won two Emmy Awards for the Pacific Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for both Short Format Program and Best Post-Production Director. Further, in 2013, Wall’s “The Immortal Edward Lumley” also won two California Film Awards, Best Narrative Feature and Best Film. “Daisy Belle” also screened at the early-August Oceanside Film Festival, a much smaller festival than the San Diego International Film Festival, walking away with no awards to its name. “That’s why I didn’t expect to win anything here, just because the level of competition at a festival this size is so much larger,” Wall explained. Wall said that he enjoys technical movie pro-

duction challenges, which spurred him to do the “Daisy Belle” project. “We did several different mediums and that was the big inspiration for putting the film together,” detailed Wall. “What could we do (and) what different mediums could we put together to make one interesting-looking film?” In terms of what inspired him to make the film from an ideas point of view, Wall called that a “very organic process” and blended it with the technical side of making the film. “It’s all magic,” Wall said. “I don’t know where the story came from. It fell from the sky, honestly.” Wall’s film production company, Halo Cinematic, is located just off of Highway 15 and West Valley Parkway in Escondido. He and his wife, Kimberly Wall — who worked as an executive producer for “Daisy Belle,” does acting, casting and production work her-

self and also works as the public information officer for the North County Transit District — have lived in Escondido since 2014. Wall told The Coast News that throughout his career, he has primarily focused on making short films because making them is a more affordable endeavor. Albeit, he has another feature film which has been in the works for four years, but has laid incomplete due to lack of financing. “So, hopefully maybe soon or maybe one day I’ll be able to do (another) feature, but for now, shorts are what I can afford,” Wall said. Broadly speaking, Wall said that he would place his films in the fantasy or science fiction genre, calling what he does “dramedy,” or a mix of comedy and drama, inspired in part by the work of the film production company Pixar. “Whenever I like a film, I dissect what is I liked about it and what I can steal,” explained Wall. “Every artist is a thief at some level. Everything that’s inspired them, they use, but it’s unrecognizable and it’s not plagiarism because it’s changed and it’s a different formula using the same bits and pieces.” He joked that one of the great things about being an Escondido filmmaker is that he doesn’t “feel like there is a lot of competition,” noting that he was not familiar with others in the industry who live within the city. Up until earlier this year, Wall’s studio was in the Miramar area of San Diego, but he has since moved shop to Escondido. “I haven’t made much out of the new studio yet (and) I’m hoping to change that,” Wall said. “It’s got a better vibe to me. My studio is right next to In-NOut Burger and Del Taco. I can’t go wrong.” “Daisy Belle” will next screen on Nov. 9 at the Coronado Island Film Festival, where it will be part of a block of short films.

Solana Beach council digs in against resort By Lexy Brodt

SOLANA BEACH — City Council is taking a stance against the Del Mar Resort. The council voted 5-0 to send a resolution to the city of Del Mar opposing “any rezone (of the site) that would increase the intensity and density of development that could negatively impact the city of Solana Beach and its residents,” vocalizing their concern about view obstruction and community impact. The potential bluff-top resort — which would be in Del Mar but predominantly impact Solana Beach — was the center of nearly two hours of public comment and discussion at the Oct. 10 City Council meeting. The development would introduce a 251-room hotel, 76 resort villas, four restaurants, 15 affordable housing units, a bluff trail and several other amenities to a 16-acre lot off of Border Avenue. The property is currently zoned for single-family private residences. Several consultants with Zephyr — one of the developers of the project along with the Robert Green Company — spoke in support of the resort during public comment. Zephyr’s CEO, Brad Termini, addressed many of the primary concerns over the potential development, which is estimated to cost $500 million — one of Zephyr’s largest projects yet. “We have no fantasy that the project as proposed today will be the one that is ultimately approved and built,” he said. Termini said that in conjunction with building the resort, Zephyr plans to finance infrastructure upgrades to Via de la Valle that would reduce area congestion “beyond today’s level.” He also assured the council that the company is working with several geologists to determine the proper and safe bluff setback for the project — a concern prompted in part by recent bluff collapses in Del Mar. Six people — not including speakers employed by or otherwise linked to Zephyr — spoke to the merits of the resort plans, including resident Dylan Ramsey, who lauded the project as a “responsibly built hotel with public access, beach access and somewhere I can walk

my dog.” “I think a hotel is a better option than a bunch of custom homes,” he said. Seven residents out of the 80-plus people in attendance spoke against the resort, a contrast to the sign-toting, vocally opposed crowd that attended the project’s second Citizens’ Participation Program meeting in August. Carla Hayes, who started a petition against the resort, summarized the input she has seen on the petition’s comment section as — “it’s too big, it doesn’t fit.” The petition has garnered about 1,500 signatures. “The proposed project is over the top,” Councilman Peter Zahn said after public comment. Mayor David Zito found it “personally disappointing” that the plan did not properly intuit the concerns of residents of the Del Mar Beach Club — the community directly north of the lot. “The project that came up after a year of work and a year of public input was a 46-foot wall that basically destroys their lives,” he said. Councilwoman Lesa Heebner called the resort a “complete tax transfer from Solana Beach to Del Mar.” “We will be losing so much property value,” she said. Del Mar would stand to acquire revenue from the resort through property taxes and the transient occupancy tax. When reached for comment, Heebner said the attendees in the room at the Oct. 10 meeting did not accurately represent the community’s perspective on the resort. “The story poles speak for themselves,” Heebner said. In a phone interview with The Coast News, Termini confirmed the project will be scaled down. He emphasized that the developers will “continue to do tireless community outreach in Solana Beach and Del Mar.” The draft Environmental Impact Report will be released in November or December of this year, and a revised plan will be presented in January. It is anticipated that the Del Mar City Council will make a final decision on the updated resort plans in spring or summer of 2019.


what? When I first saw this description, I had to pause and refresh, with a glass of one of their select red wines at the opening last month of Amici’s in the Carmel Valley district of San Diego. Amici’s is a creative restaurant upgrade and that’s a word all should recognize. It means “friends” in Italian. We can thank the owners, Chris and Louise Lischewski and Eric Nielsen. They were inspired by their many trips to Italy and wanted to embrace the lifestyle of the Italians who know all about a relaxed meal with friends in an atmosphere of warmth, with a bottle of Italian wine. Executive Chef Roelle Gabriel is a master of fine Italian wine and food togetherness. She has returned to what is now Amici’s, from the prestigious Pelican Hill Resort where she cooked for the elite in Orange County. The idea of fresh Italian farm-to-table cuisine washed down with the earthiness of Italian wine at Amici’s was irresistible to her. For this opening celebration, Amici’s wine cellar placed some special library wines out for tasting, connecting with the monthlong California Wine Celebration. Some were highly rated in the high 90s including two at 100 points of perfection by

Veeder Winery were pouring their fabulous 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley ($44), with mostly Cab, along with a dash of Merlot, Petite Verdot and Malbec. This current vintage 2015 has a Zen-like richness to it. Berry, peppercorn and olive standout, with notes of crème brulee. So now, I get it.

Once again, winemakers have come through for worthy causes, providing them with the resources to raise funds for direct sup-

port for needy members of our community. One of my favorites is the annual Make A Wish benefit in San Diego and Imperial counties, through the annual live and silent auctions in one gala evening at the Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad. “Wine and Wishes” helps funding for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. This year, with the tireless help of our friends from Meritage Wine Market, Dustin Cano and David Weigel who chaired the event, it was able to raise almost $450.000. The average cost of a wish is $10,000, so these funds will go a long way to help many. Rico Cassoni, the Wine and Food Tech director, tasted many of the wineries’ finest, all available at Meritage Winery in nearby Encinitas. Cassoni reports that Robert Craig wines from Napa Valley caught his attention. Their Mount Veeder 2014 Cabernet ($98)

Local dentist addresses seniors’ special dental needs REGION — As we age, our health challenges naturally begin to increase. While the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise are often touted, oral health tends to take a back seat for the aging population. Many times patients are unwilling or unable to travel to see a dentist, and this dental neglect can lead to a variety of overall health problems that many seniors aren’t even aware of. Dr. Roya Mirkhan of Advanced Dentistry & Im-

plant Center is passionate about helping her senior patients improve their quality of life. “My primary goal is to help others to make changes in their lives and to see them smile and enjoy life,” she said. One area Dr. Mirkhan specializes in is dental implants. “I treat a lot of elderly patients for their implant needs due to teeth loss,” she said. “I see how they eventually have a hard time making it to my office and I was getting a lot of family requests for home care for

their dental needs. I decided to establish a state-ofthe-art dental mobile care service to be able to take care of these patients in the best possible way. I can see them anywhere, and treat them, even if they are medically compromised.” Science has established links between certain oral health issues and illnesses that affect seniors, which is why Dr. Mirkhan DR.

port “a couple weeks ago.” Bowman said the airline will start with four, three-person crews based out of Carlsbad and in the coming weeks will begin to hire mechanics and “station” staff, people who will handle ticketing and other responsibilities. CP Air will be the second commercial airline to operate out of McClellan-Palomar Airport this year. Cal Jet Elite Air launched operations last year, but shut down in April. The company announced it would return in June with more routes, but has not returned to service. Nevertheless, CP Air will be the only commer-

cial option in North County for the foreseeable future. Fares range between $99 to Las Vegas and San Jose and $148.99 to Reno. The airline offers both refundable and nonrefundable tickets with the nonrefundable tickets being less expensive. CP Air’s flight schedule for San Jose includes two flights departing from Carlsbad, one at 7 a.m., the other at 6 p.m., with return flights at 8:45 a.m. and 7:45 p.m. Travel time is one hour, 15 minutes. The 7 a.m. flight runs seven days per week, while the 6 p.m. is Sunday through Friday. Going to Reno, passen-

gers will depart at 10:30 a.m. and arrive at noon. The return flight departs at 12:55 p.m. and flights operate Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the flight departs Carlsbad to Las Vegas at 10:45 a.m. and returns from Las Vegas at 12:40 p.m. On Sunday, an outbound flight to Las Vegas leaves at 2:30 p.m., with a return flight at 4:10 p.m. For Phoenix, passengers will have one Saturday outbound flight at 10:45 a.m., with the return trip slated for 1:20 p.m. Monday through Friday, meanwhile, flights depart at 2:30 p.m., and return at 5:05 p.m.

“We are very proud of our Robotics Program, which includes both First Tech Challenge middle school teams and First Lego League elementary teams. Last year, Rowe’s FTC Robotics team, Singularity, was one of a very few middle school teams to earn a spot at the FTC World Championships in Houston, Texas,” she said. “Another Rowe FTC team, Intergalactic Dragons, won a gold medal at the inaugural California State Games.” Pinkerton said that with the addition of computer science at the elementa-

ry level, the rotation wheel is preparing kids for middle school course options like the robotics program. Pinkerton said she is grateful for the annual contributions and support from the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation, which allows the school the flexibility to consider the best curricular options for its students. Championing and overseeing the computer science program is Caitlin Rhodes. Pinkerton also pointed out that Rhodes teaches advanced math. “She (Caitlin) is passionate about STEM curriculum and received training through Code.Org and Apple to design a program that builds on itself each year and is specific to each grade level,” she said. “She also receives curricular support from Code.Org and Apple

as well.” Pinkerton said adding computer science to its rotation wheel of enrichment helps students in approaching complex problems, breaking down the challenges into small pieces and logically resolving them — critical skills in all industries. “We are passionate about our students’ experience, and we believe a computer science course is essential for the training of our students to be prepared for the ever-changing world of technology, science, engineering and math,” she said. “All students deserve the opportunity to strive in an area that excites him or her and we are thrilled to be able to add a course offering to the elementary school in this field in addition to our excellent arts and athletics programs.”


owing hassle free travel to the attractive business and leisure destinations,” the release read. “The savings in parking fees and travel time to Carlsbad Palomar Airport means by the time you have driven to San Diego, arriving two hours early for your flight, waited in line to pass TSA inspections and found your gate, California Pacific Airlines could already have you at your destination.” CP Air Chief Operating Officer Mickey Bowman said in a previous interview the budding airline signed its lease with San Diego County at McClellan-Palomar Air-



to high school, college and ultimately their careers.” The Enrichment Wheel for grades one through five consists of art, music, and now, computer science. For a total of 37 weeks, students participate in the enrichment program once a week. Even though the school’s award-winning Robotics Program is for middle school students, offering elementary students computer science may pave the way for robotic interest in the future.

Girls hoops teams play with purpose CARLSBAD — Four North County girls varsity basketball teams raised more than $1,000 for breast cancer research on Oct. 13. Pacific Ridge School and San Dieguito Academy High School teamed up to host the Hoops for Hope girls varsity basketball tournament. “It wasn’t about the wins and losses,” said Pacific Ridge School coach Sara VanderHorst. “The tournament was about bringing the basketball community together and bringing awareness to a cause that affects one in eight women.” Pacific Ridge and San

Dieguito were joined by Orange Glen High School and High Tech High North County for a round-robin style tournament at Pacific Ridge. Through entry fees, snacks and T-shirt sales, the girls raised $1,000. The teams played with pink balls and nets in honor of breast cancer awareness month in October. VanderHorst said the basketball teams plan to host a tournament each October in honor of breast cancer awareness month. The money will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

er, so I’m asking you (Airbnb) to address the situation.” McIntosh denies the allegations listed in the complaint and said she’s never heard from Lowery since she purchased the home in 2012. “It’s outrageous,” McIntosh said. “(Lowery) has made no effort to contact me despite his claims. Never. I don’t believe him for one minute.” A family who recently stayed at McIntosh’s home for two months expressed their concern over an encounter they had with Lowery regarding their dogs. In a text message sent to McIntosh, the woman wrote: “All is good except the guy behind us yelled, ‘Shut up’ after five seconds of Lincoln (a small dog) play-barking at 8:45 this morning.” The renter noted that a couple days earlier, there was another neighbor in the area with a barking dog. When asked if Lowery had spoken to them directly about the dogs, the shortterm renter said, “No, he just yelled over the fence.” Nadine Scott, an Oceanside attorney who has worked on several of Lowery’s election campaigns, said she has become increasingly disheartened by the councilman’s actions directed toward McIntosh and other constituents. “A pattern of conduct is emerging,” Scott said. “(Lowery) is draining public resources from more important things. It’s an abuse of city resources.” Lowery’s aide Don Greene emailed the following statement to ABC 10, that reads in part: “Elected officials are expected to resolve problems within the city at the request of residents. And, as an elected official and good neighbor, Deputy Mayor Lowery attempts to resolve residents’ problems as best as he is able. As a resident of the City of Oceanside, Deputy Mayor Lowery is also able to make reports to City Departments just like any other resident; being

He said that neighbors have approached him with their concerns about the property, but some didn’t want to file complaints out of fear of reprisal. He complained on their behalf, which he said was his duty as an elected official, echoing Greene’s statement. “If you don’t want your elected representative representing you, why even bother voting?” Lowery said. “We are supposed to do a job, and I am simply doing my job.” Lowery said that McIntosh, rather than correcting the issues at her vacation rental — which he said were straight from the municipal code— went on the attack through the press. “She decided the best approach to her situation, because she didn’t want to do anything about the issues, was to attack me,” he said. “And these issues weren’t negotiable, they were straight out of the code, which is black and white on these things.” Leslie Davies, an Oceanside resident who was a once a strident supporter of Lowery, has also voiced her concerns over Lowery’s penchant for filing municipal grievances. “We have so many issues we need to be worrying about,” Davies said. “I cannot believe we are spending city resources on this. I am appalled.” Lowery said that Scott and Davies’ involvement signals to him that this has become politically motivated, as the two women are supporters of Lowery’s chief campaign rival, Esther Sanchez. Once political allies, Lowery and Sanchez’s relationship soured over the years, and now the two are pitted against each other in the District 1 election in 2018. “They (Davies and Scott) are doing anything they can to protect Esther,” Lowery said.

Now at the age 78, the iconic designer is not slowing down any time soon and is currently working on her fourth book with the working title “Zandra Rhodes: 50 Years of Fabulous Fashion” as well as prepping for a show at San Diego’s Westgate Hotel on Oct. 30. Going back to her early roots, Rhodes was born in 1940. She said she was introduced to the world of fashion by her mother, a fitter for the Paris fashion House of Worth and later a lecturer at Medway College of Art. Her father was a truck driver and she has a younger sister who is married with four children. Rhodes isn’t married but has been with her partner Salah Hassanein, the former president of Warner Brothers International Theaters, for many years. It is because of him that she calls Del Mar home. “He wanted to live in a home that had an ocean view,” she said. As for education, Rhodes studied at Medway College of Art, Kent, U.K., and then at The Royal College of Art in London. Her major area of study was printed textile design. “I never dreamed of a career as a fashion designer, I was more interested in printed patterns on fabric,” she said. “My early textile designs were considered too outrageous by the traditional British manufacturers, so I decided to make dresses from my own fabric prints.”

Latest study adds to increasing data on the benefits of coffee Ask the Doctors

Dr. Elizabeth Ko

Dr. Eve Glazier

DEAR DOCTOR: I'm only 22 and already I've gotten whiplash from all the studies about coffee. First it's bad for you, then it's good. Then, oops, no -- it's actually bad. My girlfriend's a serious coffee drinker, and she's thrilled about another new study that says coffee's going to help her live longer. Is that right? How do we know what to believe? DEAR READER: We agree that the back-andforth about coffee over the decades has been confusing and for coffee drinkers who want a final answer, frustrating. Part of this is because of the nature of ongoing research, which, as it asks new questions, incorporates the newest data. Add enough variables to any line of inquiry, and chances are quite good that the conclusions will shift, if not change. Another factor that plays a role is the study itself. Many of the coffee studies, including this latest one, have been observational studies. That means that researchers gather data from large populations, identify and account for lifestyle or environmental factors that could sway results, then analyze the resulting data to draw conclusions. When they're finished they have a correlation, but not a definitive cause. That doesn't mean such studies

should be discounted. Far from it. It was through observational studies that researchers first linked smoking to lung cancer. This in turn led to the more rigorous and targeted research that revolutionized how we view tobacco and tobacco products. We suspect that coffee is the subject of so many studies for a couple of reasons. First, it's so widely consumed. Here in the United States, it's our favorite

beverage. We drink more coffee than soda, tea and juice combined. Plus, thanks to its caffeine content, coffee is a stimulant. In fact, caffeine is the most widely consumed physiological stimulant in the world. That's why, with regular use, it can result in a mild form of physical dependence. In addition, caffeine has been associated with adverse side effects in some individuals, such as temporary spikes in blood pressure. All of this -- wide-

spread use, potential physiological effects, as well as the numerous bioactive compounds that it contains -- have made coffee a prime target for research. Which brings us to the new study now making headlines. Researchers in Britain looked at a decade's worth of health data for about 500,000 adults who regularly drank from one to eight cups of coffee per day. This included brewed and instant coffee, as well as decaf. According to their analysis, those who drank coffee regularly had a slightly (emphasis is ours) lower risk of death than did non-coffee drinkers. Although the study didn't address questions of how or why, the researchers have cited coffee's complexity. In addition to the caffeine that reels us in, coffee contains over 1,000 different chemical compounds, including B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, as well as hundreds of phytochemicals with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. However -and this is important -- if you're not already a regular or heavy coffee drinker, don't dive into the deep end with a multi-cup habit. And when it comes to pregnant women, the consensus is clear -- severely limit (or quit) coffee. That's because the enzyme needed to metabolize caffeine is not present in the fetus. Eve Glazier, M.D., MBA, is an internist and associate professor of medicine at UCLA Health. Elizabeth Ko, M.D., is an internist and assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health.

‘Law made public’: North County Law Library available to all By Steve Horn

VISTA — By law, California mandates that every county have a law library accessible to the public. Answering that legal call to action, San Diego County has four such libraries, including one for North County in Vista. That library, the North County Law Library, sits within a stone’s throw of the Vista Detention Center, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department North Coastal Station and the San Diego Superior Court’s North County Division. And it exists, explained Branch Manager Debra Morse, to serve the public and laypeople just as much as it acts as a resource for attorneys. “We’re a full-service law library that is available to the public,” Morse said. “The tagline on all of our publications is ‘law made public,’” Morse said. “So we have a strong mandate to make legal resource materials and legal practice materials available to everyone. Anyone can come in and use our facilities free of charge” and have access to both hard copy law library book materials, as well as electronic law library research tools. The North County Law Library also plays host to forums and events, including its ongoing “Know the Law” lecture series. On Oct. 15, as part of that series and as a case in point of the type of educational activities it organizes, the law library co-convened a 101-level discussion with the San Diego County Library’s San Marcos branch on the First Amendment led by Rancho Santa Fe-based attorney Carla DiMare. On Sept. 27, as another example, the North County Law Library co-hosted a forum on Landlord Tenant law

at the San Diego County Library’s Vista branch. Forthcoming at the Vista library branch, the North County Law Library will also oversee a forum on Trusts and Estates on Oct. 25 and on Immigration Law on Nov. 29, with each session beginning at 6 p.m. All of those events will fit under the “Know the Law” series banner. Morse said that the North County Law Library held a total of 14 events during the 2017-2018 cycle, attended by 347 attendees. Back in May, 83 people attended a free legal clinic — in which attendees could discuss legal questions with practicing attorneys free of charge — which was put together in concert with the North County Bar Association. DiMare lauded the law library for “helping people learn and solve problems,” adding that she has “seen people at the law library who are faced with major life problems, such as an eviction or loss of a pension, and they have nowhere else to turn for help. The library gives them hope. I think we are truly fortunate that our government funds librar-

ies.” Those funds cited by DiMare come in the form of legal filing fees collected by the county court system, a percentage of which go to the law library as a standard budgetary matter and which served 94.7 percent of the San Diego Law Library’s budget during the 2016 fiscal year, according to its most recent annual report. The rest of the money, then, comes from fundraising and memberships and the San Diego Law Library raises that money through its 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Law Library Justice Foundation. Morse noted that the North County Law Library is particularly important not just for Vista, but for the whole landscape of northern San Diego County, because the closest library of its sort north of Vista sits in Santa Ana, California in Orange County, while for many in North County it is a far trek east to El Cajon or south to the downtown and Chula Vista locales. She added that about 60 percent of library attendees are laypeople, while 40 percent are attorneys. Some 48,000

Del Mar resident joins 22nd District board DEL MAR — Gov. Jerry Brown on Oct. 18 appointed a former Del Mar councilman to the 22nd District Agricultural Association Board of Directors and reappointed two other San Diego County residents to the panel. Brown named Del Mar resident Donald Mosier, 74, to a four-year term on the board that governs the Del Mar Fairgrounds on behalf of the state via a nine-member board of directors. The governor appoints each member of the board to serve a four-year term. The governor reappointed attorney Frederick Schenk, 65, and Lisa Barkett, 59, who have served since 2011. Mosier is the Climate Action Plan facilitator for the city of Del Mar and is a member of multiple governing boards, including the Del Mar Community Connections Board, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Climate Action Campaign Board of Directors. He served on the Del Mar City Council from 2008 to 2016. — City News Service

people came into and out of the doors of the San Diego Law Library system in 2017-2018, according to its annual report for that time period. What differentiates the state’s county law libraries from their counterparts in law schools, Morse explained, is that the university variety serve more of an academic purpose.

She explained that the county law libraries, by juxtaposition, provide practical legal resources for those who will likely use them as practitioners within the legal system. That includes attorneys, people trying to get criminal records expunged while trying to apply for a job, or people simply attempting to put their best feet forward while repre-

senting themselves in the legal system. The San Diego Law Library’s website also provides dozens of free legal guides on its websites in areas ranging from family law for divorce, Indian law research, military law, tax law, border law and a whole mountain of other materials. California’s county law library system was created vis legislation passed in 1891 and is now governed and regulated under the state’s Business and Professions Code in Sections 63006363. The first sentence of that law reads that, “There is in each county of this State a board of law library trustees, which governs the law library established for the county under the provisions of this chapter.” While every county in California has at least one law library under law, only 12 other counties in the whole U.S. have equivalent public law libraries, according to the website
