CARLSBAD — Carlsbad has selected the former city manager of Bellevue, Wash., Steven Sarkozy, as its next city manager, replacing John Coates who resigned suddenly last October. “The City of Carlsbad offers an unmatched combination of progressive leadership, outstanding services, financial health and a talented staff passionate about public service. Most importantly, the City Council is united in its vision for the future, and I am excited to be a part of helping to bring that vision to life,” said Sarkozy in a statement. He has not spoken publically about his appointment at this time. He most recently

District sees no conflict in Prop AA contracts and contributions By Jared Whitlock

Across the state, the connections between bond contributions and subsequent contract issuances have raised “pay-toplay” concerns with some oversight groups. But there’s no such conflict at SDUHSD, said Eric Dill, the district’s associate superintendent of business services. That’s because firms like Lionakis were “pre-qualified” to do construction and financing work before the bond campaign kicked off.

Watching the Waters So far this year, agencies have captured 43,290 pounds of drugs in maritime smuggling events By Rachel Stine
REGION — Just before midnight, temperatures hung in the low 50s and a few clouds punctuated the February sky. There wasn’t much to hinder visibility, though the night’s crescent moon wasn’t offering much in the way of illumination either. The conditions that evening were as good as any for a maritime smuggling attempt — or for trying to prevent one. On a seaside cliff in Carlsbad, Border Patrol agents scanned the coastline for any signs of something out of the ordinary — a flashlight signal or the silhouette of a boat skimming along the waves, or a van suspiciously parked near a beach access point. “It’s kind of the typical cat and mouse game where you’re kind of looking for them while they’re looking for you,” said Michael Cariker, a Border Patrol supervisory agent. As it happened, there were no maritime events that night. Just two days before, there was an incident involving a jet ski on Silver Strand State Beach that resulted in three arrests. And two nights after that, two people were caught with almost 1,100 pounds of marijuana in a panga boat at Point Mugu in Ventura County. The primary smuggling threat along the California coastline for the most part has remained the same over the years: smugglers in open fishing boats illegally transporting people and drugs into the U.S. Yet as the land border with Mexico has become more secure, the number of maritime smuggling events has increased. To avoid law enforcement, smugglers are traveling farther out to sea and landing up and down California’s entire 840-mile coastline. To repel this influx, Border Patrol is teaming up with other law enforcement agencies throughout the state and working to develop risk-based surveillance tactics driven by intelligence. But agents know to an extent, there is only so much they can do. Law enforcement agents have observed seafaring smuggling attempts in the state rise significantly since about 2008 and 2009, according to Border Patrol watch commander Jason Liebes. In fiscal year 2009, law enforcement agents made 400 apprehensions and 49
seizures of contraband, which included 56,900 pounds of drugs, along the coast, according to statistics from ReCoM (Regional Coordinating Mechanism). ReCoM consists of agencies from San Diego to San Francisco including Border Patrol, the Coast Guard, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), as well as state and local partners. In fiscal year 2010, ReCoM-reported apprehensions more than doubled to 867. Intercepted maritime events that year yielded 10 seizures that included 27,600 pounds. The number of apprehensions and seizures has fluctuated over the years since, though remained well above those of fiscal year 2009. For the fiscal years from 2011 to 2013, ReCoM agencies counted 631,779, and 616 apprehensions as well as 122, 108, and 123 seizures, respectively. ReCoM agencies have reported 147 apprehensions and 33 seizures so far, which have included about 43,290 pounds of drugs as of the fiscal year 2014.

Trying to catch maritime smugglers has become a “cat-and-mouse game,” says Michael Cariker, a Border Patrol supervisory agent. With the land border becoming more secure, many smugglers have taken to the seas to traffick in drugs, using panga boats, such as the one pictured in the background during a smuggling attempt in Carlsbad last year. File photo
“The pangas don’t really change that much. You know, there will be bigger ones, smaller ones, just depending on what they want to push that particular night,” Cariker said. “I think if anything, (maritime smugglers have) gotten better at, for lack of a better term, is counter

While the number of maritime events has risen, smugglers’ methods have not changed. Individuals who transport people and drugs are typically recruited by transnational criminal organizations, including Mexican drug cartels. On average, they are paid between $5,000 and $10,000 per trip. For Mexican fishermen who are targeted, since they have their own boats, the payment is several times what they can make fishing in a year. Most often the travelers are unarmed due to the greater consequences of bringing weapons into the country illegally. “The prosecution, and the type of consequence for a subject who comes in with a weapon is significant,” said Cariker. “The amount of force that the law enforcement agencies in the area that are going to take towards these people if they have weapons, is going to be much greater. And I think they realize that. At least, we believe that.” Most smugglers travel by panga boats, open wooden vessels, and communicate with associates on the beach with cell phones and flashlights.
surveillance. They know we’re out there. They know we’re watching. And so they do they same.” For years, Border Patrol has worked with the Coast Guard to detain individuals still out at sea. They follow up with the Department of Homeland Security for intelligence once investigations are completed. Task forces in the county have concentrated on addressing overall border security trends and the workings of transnational criminal organizations. But in light of increased maritime threats, Border Patrol has partnered and coordinated with other law enforcement agencies to enhance border security throughout San Diego County and across the state. “I think (the other agencies) saw it as a national security threat. And these people were landing on American soil, on their beaches and in their communities,” Liebes added. “When you have boats landing in Del Mar, Solana Beach, Carlsbad, the local agencies take notice. The state agencies, state parks, the county sheriffs, they take notice to that. And they want to protect their

own communities.” Maritime security efforts not only aim to stop smuggling but also prevent the loss of life that can often accompany illicit ventures out at sea. Cariker explained that the people hired to make cross-border trips don’t realize what they are getting into. “They’ll be told, ‘Oh, it’s an hour. It’s just there, we’ll drop you off,’” he said. “Well then that hour turns into 12 hours, 30 miles out. They can’t see land. They have no water. The engines could die on those pangas. There’s too many variables out there that they just don’t recognize. That’s what we’re really trying to avoid is that loss of life.” When maritime activities spiked, Border Patrol helped create the Maritime Unified Command in 2008 to unite law enforcement agencies engaged in bor-
der security. That has since transformed into ReCoM. ReCoM coordinates multi-agency operations, primarily aimed to thwart maritime security events, as well as collects and shares security intelligence among member agencies. “Where we had just a few local agencies that we had been engaged with that had maritime domain to now, I believe that in San Diego County we have a little over 20 law enforcement agencies that are involved in maritime security,” Liebes said. Another primary border security collaboration is the Department of Homeland Security’s nationwide Operation Stonegarden. The program addresses the local crime and security repercussions of people and contraband entering the country illegally, according to Lt. John Maryon from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department. Maryon heads
the Operation Stonegarden activities in the county. He explained that unlawful border crossings instigate crimes in border communities. People entering the country illegally are associated with breaking into houses and stealing cars in efforts to fend for themselves. Smuggled drugs lead to drug crimes and can support gang activity. To address these spillover effects, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, including all of the county’s police departments and Sheriff’s Department, work together to increase law enforcement presence along the border, conduct joint special operations, communicate and share information. Their efforts for the most part involve “boots on the ground” saturation patrols in vulnerable areas that target criminals who are involved in smuggling and other cross-border crimes, according to Maryon. Operation Stonegarden sponsored Operation Allied Shield IV, which targeted San Diego gangs known to support drug smuggling, human trafficking, and other cross-border crimes carried out by transnational criminal organizations. More than 1,000 deputies, officers, federal and state agents performed parole and probation checks, traffic stops, and served search and arrest warrants during the two-day operation in late July 2013. The operation resulted in 372 arrests, 323 citations, and 79 narcotics seizures with a total estimates street value of $455,000. The Department of Homeland Security allocated $55 million for fiscal year 2013 to reimburse the other agencies for overtime, equipment and mileage used in Operation Stonegarden activities.

Safeguarding the schools District update By Rick Schmitt The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) has always been firmly committed to safeguarding our students and staff. In January 2013, SDUHSD administration along with our San Dieguito Faculty Association (SDFA) and our California School Employees Association (CSEA) outlined some additional measures and considerations the district was taking to heighten this commitment. In this month’s message, I would like to share an update on the safety measures SDUHSD has taken since then to maintain our campuses as safe places to learn and work. Safety measures in place or in progress: ● Installation of Lock Blok & School Safe door lockdown devices at all school sites (ensures doors can be locked from inside the classroom) ● Improved signage directing visitor traffic ● Improved visitor badging / identification ● Enhanced emergency supplies ● Window treatments and blind installation in classrooms not affected by Proposition AA construction ● Access points at school sites have been lim-
ited during school hours ● Regular & required “Safety Walks” by site administration & teacher representatives ● Additional staff trainings by local law enforcement & other agencies ● Revised & updated Site Safety Plans & all emergency procedures including lockdown drills In the next few weeks, the team who identified the measures noted above will reconvene to consider our next steps.
In the interim, however, we will continue to limit access to our campuses during school hours; to require all visitors to check in at the office when they arrive at a school site; to remind everyone to be vigilant and report anything “out of the ordinary” that they witness or hear about at school. As the issues of school security evolve, we encourage your input and cooperation while we work together to safeguard and

GOP backing minimum wage raise California Focus By Thomas D. Elias From the moment Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed America’s first minimum wage law in 1938 (25 cents per hour, or $11 a week), conservatives have fought increases every time and everywhere they’ve been proposed. It would cost millions of jobs, industrialists and business interests argue every time anyone tries to boost the minimum. Meanwhile, executive salaries have skyrocketed, leaving many millions of workers far behind in a phenomenon now called “income inequality.” But now comes Ron Unz, former publisher of the American Conservative magazine and once a Republican candidate for governor, backing a new minimum wage for California two bucks an hour above the $10 minimum now set to take effect two years from now. Unz is not to be taken lightly; he authored and largely funded the 1998 Proposition 227 ban on most bilingual education programs. Far from the Republican bugaboo it long has been, software entrepreneur Unz claims a higher minimum wage will solve many pet GOP peeves and could restore his party’s faded fortunes in the state. He is once again pushing an initiative, this time aiming to raise the minimum to $12 an hour immediately. But Unz doesn’t plan to fund the campaign for this one alone, and contributions from others have been slow coming. So it might not reach the ballot until 2016. If you’re a conservative and you don’t like illegal immigration, Medicaid, food stamps and other welfare programs, you might be disappointed by that kind of wait. For Unz makes a good case for his claim that the best way to cut back on all those longtime
GOP targets is to eliminate the need for them by paying workers more. “I first got involved with this when I realized that a higher minimum wage solves the illegal immigration problem. The vast majority of illegals are in this country for jobs, jobs Americans won’t do,” Unz says. He claims it’s not the nature of work in car washes, hotels, restaurant kitchens and vegetable fields that turns off American workers — it’s the lousy pay for that work. “Americans won’t do those jobs because the wages are so low you can’t survive,” he says. “Now Los Angeles is talking about raising the minimum for hotel workers there to $15. When you raise the wages to a level like that, a lot of people are suddenly happy in jobs they wouldn’t touch before.”
Unz claims a higher minimum wage will solve many pet GOP peeves and could restore his party’s faded fortunes in the state
Unz argues that number is misleading. Initial job losses, he claims, would be followed by job increases stemming from the roughly $150 billion a year the higher minimum would put into the economy. California Assembly Speaker John Perez, a Democrat, made the same argument last year while backing the scheduled 2016 increase. “Putting that kind of money into the economy will create far more jobs than it might cost,” Perez said. And, Unz said in an interview, the report to Congress found that 27 million people — about 98 percent of those affected — would benefit, while just 2 percent might not. “If a policy helps 98 percent of the people affected, it usually looks pretty good,” Unz deadpanned. Plus, he figures, when minimum wage earners get more money of their own and need less welfare spending, the government will save as much as $250 billion a year which could be used for anything and might beef up the economy. So far, Unz has won backing from prominent conservatives like Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly and talk show host Bill O’Reilly. But elected politicians on the right are staying away from his putative proposition and those on the left are silent, perhaps because Unz would considerably outdo the plan they passed last year. Whenever this plan reaches the ballot, Democrats will be in the odd position of either backing a Republican’s plan that makes them look like pikers, or opposing their own ideas.
If U.S. citizens take those jobs once they pay significantly better than welfare, a lot of the illegal immigration problem will go away. The same for programs like food stamps and Medi-Cal, Unz claims.

ENCINITAS — Along with sending hundreds of emails to city and school officials, residents packed into the EUSD (Encinitas Union School District) board meeting on Tuesday night to try and prevent the Pacific View property from going to auction. But ultimately, the district board of trustees decided to proceed with the sale. Trustee Maureen Muir was the lone board member voicing opposition to the upcoming March 25 auction. “I agree with everyone here — it shouldn’t be going to the highest bidder,” Muir said. Drawing cheers from the crowd, Muir made a motion for the board to reconsider the auction. Board President Marla Strich said it wasn’t the appropriate time to make a motion, because the Pacific View agenda item was only for informational purposes. Earlier in the meeting, EUSD Superintendent Tim Baird summarized a decade of failed negotiations with the property. For instance, the district tried to sell the property to the nonprofit Art

City exploring survey for sales tax increase By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — A council majority wants to survey residents in the coming months on whether they would support a tax increase to fund roads and other local infrastructure. At Wednesday night’s meeting, council members voted 3-2 to request proposals from businesses that specialize in surveys and outreach for sales tax increases. Next month, the council will mull over whether to select one of those firms. Councilwoman Lisa Shaffer, who voted in favor of the motion, said the city has a balanced operating budget, but additional sales tax revenue could fund needs like sidewalk repairs, a new lifeguard tower at Moonlight Beach and roadway construction in Leucadia, known as the streetscape. “It’s no secret that we have a serious infrastructure deficit and we’ve been ignoring it for a long time,” Shaffer said. This year, the city is due to collect $11.72 million in sales tax revenue. Encinitas’ tax rate is currently 8 per-
cent, and bumping it up to 8.25 percent would bring in an additional $2.7 million annually, according to an estimate from city staff. A sales tax survey and additional outreach could cost as much as $100,000, according to Catherine Lew, CEO of the research firm Lew Edwards. Because gathering data takes time, it would be a “quarter horse sprint” to place it on the upcoming November ballot, Edwards said. Even if a sales tax increase fails, the council majority said the survey could help the city identify where residents would like city funding to be allocated. Edwards noted cities like La Mesa and Vista have approved sales tax increases in recent years. Passing a general-purpose sales tax increase requires majority approval from voters. Putting a sales tax increase on the ballot requires approval from four out of five councilmembers, but two councilmembers said they wouldn’t back such a measure. Deputy Mayor Mark Muir said
the city should learn to live within its means, adding that he doesn’t see a need for upping the sales tax rate. Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar agreed, stating the city should take a closer look at cutting costs, rather than a tax hike. “I want to make it very clear that you don’t have my support now, and you won’t have my support later in that four-fifths vote,” Gaspar said. Councilman Tony Kranz said the city faces huge costs in the form of deferred road maintenance. “You could lay off half the staff here and still have a lot of work to do before you handle deferred maintenance,” he said. “I’m certainly for a good scrubbing of the organization chart to make sure we’re as efficient as possible, but meanwhile, I think this is a question that should be put to the public,” Kranz added. Councilmembers raised the prospect of upping the sales tax last month as a possible way to pay for projects like Pacific View.
E-cigarettes banned at San Diego County Fair By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Electronic cigarettes and other similar devices will not be allowed at the upcoming San Diego County Fair, which begins June 7, after the governing board of the Del Mar Fairgrounds voted 6-0 at its March 11 meeting to include them in a no-smok-
ing policy. After a multiyear phase-out plan, the annual event became smoke-free in 2013. Those who lobbied for the change lauded the 22nd District Agricultural Association for banning tobacco use but said electronic cigarettes were still a problem. The battery-powered vaporizers, also called electronic nicotine delivery systems, simulate smoking. A heating element vaporizes liquid solutions that contain nicotine, flavorings, both or one of the two. Law enforcement officials and health and prevention experts say they are also used to inhale illegal substances. Nancy Logan told board members when she bought a device for demonstration

purposes, she was told it was “strictly for marijuana use.” There are few studies on the effects of e-cigarettes on users or bystanders but at least one found some potentially harmful compounds are present in the vapors. Ray McEdward, a La Mesa resident and lifelong asthmatic, said he avoided the county fair until last year because of tobacco smoke. But while waiting in a food line the person in front of him lit up an e-cig, as they are known. McEdward said he had to use his rescue inhaler and then he and his wife left the fair early. He said the devices “are not the harmless items everybody thinks they are.” “Who knows what’s in this vapor?” McEdward asked. “If smokers can go eight-plus hours on a cross-country flight, why can’t they attend the fair for six hours without an e-cigarette?” All 10 speakers at the meeting urged the board to add e-cigs and other similar devices to the list of banned smoking items at the fair. Many cited an increase in their use by young people. Barbara Gordon, from the San Dieguito Alliance for Drug Free Youth, said they are perceived by youth as “safe and exciting.” “We do not want to re-glamorize smoking again,” she said. Her colleague Judi
Strang said the industry is targeting youth with products such as cotton candy flavorings and pink cases. She also said there is “anecdotal evidence” that the devices help smokers quit the habit, but “research doesn’t yet show” they are a successful cessation method. Board members voted 6-0 to ban the use of e-cigs and all similar electronic vaping devices that simulate smoking during the fair only, but not the horse races or other fairgrounds events. Directors wanted the language to be as all inclusive as possible and applied wording similar to what was used earlier in the day when the County Board of Supervisors opted to restrict e-cig use. Director Adam Day said the 22nd DAA set a “great standard” by becoming the first county fair in the state to ban smoking. “E-cigs weren’t on our radar when we did that,” he said, adding that allowing the devices would send “the wrong message to our youth.” He also cited safety reasons for security personnel for incorporating electronic smoking devices into the no-smoking policy. Director David Watson said “it would be totally confusing” for enforcement officials if they weren’t included. I would feel sorry for personnel trying to distinguish between the two, Watson said.

City OKs private Leucadia Club — with conditions By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — The private Leucadia Club can open its doors, but with no more than 20 members allowed inside at one time. Planning commissioners voted 3-1 to approve a minor-use permit for the club. Yet, the commission imposed a 20-member occupancy cap, citing parking concerns. The club, which is invitation only and largely made up of residents in the Biotech industry, would eventually have upwards of 75 members. However, at-large meetings aren’t planned, according to organizers. Still, the commissioners expressed worry over a large chunk of members showing up at once and taking away parking spaces from homes and Leucadia Plaza, where the club is leasing a 1,900-square-foot space. “Leucadia, especially west of 101, doesn’t have much parking,” commissioner Glenn O’Grady said. If organizers want to raise the 20-person maximum, they will have to pay for a parking study to gauge how many spots members’ cars would take up throughout the day. The commission would then review the study to see if the results justify an increase. The exact cost of such a study is unknown at this time; it would depend on the scope of it and the consultant chosen, according to city staff. Patrick Armstrong, who is on the club’s board of directors, said the group has already invested $75,000 toward the club. He called spending additional money on a study “disheartening.” Members have to pay a monthly fee for the club. But Armstrong said those dues only go toward paying the rent and operating costs; the club isn’t looking to make money by attracting a lot of people.
“But there might be a chance, a situation where we have a book signing or we have a speaker that comes in and there are going to be more than 20 people in the space,” Armstrong said. “So my concern moving forward is that we’re going to set ourselves up for failure.” Leucadia Club will offer members a chance to relax, enjoy good conversation and network, Armstrong noted. Members point to the Longfellow House, an intellectual commune near Harvard University, as a major influence. And contrary to some rumors, the club is neither a strip joint or political think tank, according to materials the club mailed to nearby neighbors several months ago. Yet, some neighbors have protested the social club due to noise and safety concerns. Resident Barbara Kubarych said she has no problem with the concept of Leucadia Club, but said it shouldn’t be located within a mere 80 feet of residents’ homes. “Like it or not, a lot of people coming and going in and out of the building is going to have a major impact on the residential community that is directly behind it,” Kubarych said. For that reason, she welcomed the member cap. “As a property owner in the neighborhood directly behind the building, a limitation of 20 people is extremely comforting,” Kubarych said. City staff recommended the 20-member cap, but Armstrong noted club organizers learned about it only an hour before the meeting. J. Dichoso, associate planner with Encinitas, said the limit was determined the day of the hearing, after calculating the TURN TO CLUB ON A18

Advocacy group fights for oversight of elder care facilities By Rachel Stine
REGION — Aaron Byzak remains convinced that if he had not checked up on his grandmother after what her caregivers described as “a little fall,” she would have never gotten proper medical attention after the accident that eventually caused her death. “She probably would have died overnight and we never would have even known,” he said. Last year, his grandmother Hazel Mensching was living in the memory care unit at Emeritus, a residential care facility in Oceanside. Byzak credits his grandparents for raising him as a child, saying that visiting their home when he was younger was “a vacation in love.” He said Mensching was known for her snickerdoodle cookies. On Feb.7, 2013, she was taken on a sightseeing excursion run by Emeritus. The van driver secured her wheelchair but failed to put her seatbelt on. When the van was in a traffic accident, the 92-year-old Mensching was flung out of her wheelchair. The driver and a caregiver treated her for a scrape on her arm, and continued the trip. Byzak said he went to see his grandmother after Emeritus staff notified his aunt that Mensching had sustained a minor injury.

He said that when he arrived, he found his grandmother crying and wincing in pain. An EMT for a few years, Byzak examined Mensching, discovering that she had a hematoma the size of a softball on her shoulder, a piece of her scalp has been scraped off, and she had a broken leg. He demanded that staff call 911. Mensching was taken to the hospital more than four hours after her accident. “By the time we get to the hospital, she is screaming in pain,” Byzak said. X-rays revealed that Mensching had a spiral TURN TO HAZEL ON A10
CUSD lowers CVA grad requirements Board questioned whether rigorous requirements for continuation high school would lead to higher drop out rates By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — Different graduation requirements for the school district’s Carlsbad Village Academy (CVA) continuation high school was deliberated at Wednesday’s school board meeting. As a continuation high school, CVA provides alternative course structures and a learning environment for students who were not successful at CUSD’s comprehensive high schools. The 110 students that attend CVA take part in a trimester system that enables those in grades 10 through 12 to finish courses faster and earn more class credits within a year to catch up from failing courses at another high school. In 2007, the Board prioritized having all CUSD students fulfill the course

requirements of California State University and University of California admission, known as A-G requirements. Beginning with the graduating class of 2017, students will need to pass all A-G required courses along with other state requirements to receive a diploma. “The goal would be that your students would leave your high school able to get into a four-year school in California,” explained CUSD Superintendent Dr. Suzette Lovely. With a class of students being held to A-G standards for graduation for the first time, CUSD staff and the Board questioned if the new standards were appropriate for CVA students. “The A-G requirements are so rigorous and restrictive, and these are students that are already being unsuccessful in many of those classes,” said Lovely. The A-G course requirements entail two TURN TO REQUIREMENTS ON A19
County increases oversight of senior care facilities By Rachel Stine
REGION — San Diego County is increasing the oversight of residential care facilities for the elderly with a new pilot program from the District Attorney’s Office that includes expanding the ombudsman program and the development of a facility rating system. The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved the initiatives at its March 11 meeting. “I believe the county must do all it can to safeguard our elderly,” said Supervisor Dianne Jacob, at the meeting. In her state of the county address in January, Jacob made advocating for the county’s growing population of people over 70 a priority for the board. The District Attorney’s one-year pilot program will focus on investigating and prosecuting crimes against residents of long-term care facilities. Currently, the local branch of the state’s community care licensing division handles residential care facility complaints and violations. According to Chief Deputy District Attorney Summer Stephan, incidents at these facilities are handled administratively or with fines and are not reported to police for criminal investigation. As a result, the District Attorney’s Office is unable to prosecute criminal activity. “We can’t make a decision about whether a case can be prosecuted if we don’t see the case at all,” she said. With the pilot program, the District Attorney’s Office will work to educate social services officials about when to re-

port incidents for criminal investigation and prosecution and partner with law enforcement on investigations. “With this special prosecution unit, we would set up systems of collaboration with our law enforcement partners and with the department that oversees the licensing and oversight of skill nursing facilities and residential care facilities,” she said. “We know that crimes
committed in RCF (residential care facilities) are rarely referred to outside law enforcement or the Department of Justice,” said Chris Murphy, executive director of Consumer Advocates for RCFE Reform. The program is also designed to raise awareness about elder abuse. The $1.5 million cost of the pilot will be covered by money from Proposition 172, which generates
county funds for public safety. Recognizing that the number of people over 75 years old is expected to almost double by 2030, the County Board of Supervisors also approved the expansion of the ombudsman program and the development of a rating system for long-term care facilities for the elderly. The Long-Term Care Ombudsman program advocates for elderly residents of residential and nursing facilities. In 2009, the number of full-time ombudsman was halved from eight to four due to budget cuts. The board’s action directed the chief administrative officer to strengthen and increase employees of the program. Board support was also given to residential facility stakeholders to develop a rating system so consumers can be better informed about the quality of such facilities.

Planning Commissioner is selected to be new Carlsbad councilmember By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — Planning Commissioner Michael Schumacher was selected from a 28-candidate pool to be Carlsbad’s newest city councilmember on March 11. He will take over the remaining term of Farrah Douglas, who resigned in early February and cited personal and family commitments. Schumacher will serve for eight months until the November 2014 election. Council unanimously selected Schumacher after interviewing all of the candidates on Tuesday. “My decision wasn’t weighed just on who has the best resume...but who would be a good fit on this council,” said Councilmember Keith Blackburn. “I’m surprised and I’m humbled and I’m

honored to serve the city of Carlsbad with you,” Schumacher said after the announcement was made. “I’m ready to start the job. Thank you.”
Schumacher has been serving on the city’s Planning Commission since 2009 and prior to that volunteered on the design review board for four years. He is the owner and founder of the real estate investment company Enact Partners. During his interview, he emphasized his ongoing service for the city and knowledge of city workings and issues, particularly Carlsbad’s General Plan, which will soon be reviewed by council. “Carlsbad is on the right track, and I’d like to see that continue by developing a future for our kids and future generations,” he said, noting that he has children of his own. Runners-up for the council seat included Planning Commissioner Hap L’Heureux, Keith Lewinger, a retired general manager of Fallbrook
Public Utility District, and former Planning Commissioner and U-T editor Thomas Arnold. Other candidates for the position included high school seniors, local business owners, engineers, an artist, graduates of the Carlsbad Citizens Academy, and long-time residents. Interviewees highlighted the importance of investing in local public schools, supporting businesses, enhancing sustainability, and handling city finances responsibly during their three minutes before city council. Council urged those who were not selected, to run in the November election or apply to serve on one of the city’s commissions. “If you truly have it in your heart, please run in November,” said Mayor Matt Hall.

of 128,000 people maintains 90 percent resident satisfaction and has a AAA credit rating. He was worked as a consultant for private firms since leaving his position in Bellevue in 2013. “When you’ve got an organization with an annual budget of more than a quarter of a billion dollars that provides services seven days a week to more than 100,000 people, effective leadership is key,” said Mayor Matt Hall. “Steve’s experience and track record of excellence are simply unmatched.” City Council expressed that they have high expectations for the new city manager at the March 11 meeting. “I think all of you are going to be amazed about how far and how fast we are going to be able to go towards our goals as a city,” said Mayor Pro Tem Mark Packard. Sarkozy will start his new position on April 14 with an annual salary of $260,000. Since Coates’ leave,
Carlsbad’s former fire chief Kevin Crawford has served as the city’s interim city manager. Crawford recently left the position to become the president and CEO of United Way of San Diego County. Kathy Dodson, who was promoted to assistant city manager in late December, will act as interim city manager until Sarkozy takes over. She was chosen for the position over Carlsbad’s other assistant city manager, Gary Barberio, who has been with the city seven years longer and was promoted to the assistant city manager position months before her. Dodson was selected because she handles more of the day-to-day operations of the city, according to city communications manager Kristina Ray. Barberio is responsible for special projects, including the Encina power plant and transforming Carlsbad Boulevard. Council formerly approved Sarkozy for the position at its March 11 meeting.
Pachyderm pressure continues By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Members of the 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors were criticized at the March 11 meeting for continuing to allow elephant rides during the San Diego County Fair, which runs June 7 through July 6. Since 2011, animal rights activists have tried to eliminate the rides after a secretly taped video released by Animal Defenders International shows trainers allegedly abusing the pachyderms at Have Trunk Will Travel, the company that provides the attraction at the fairgrounds. Owners Kari and Gary Johnson say the footage is taken out of context and people who are not with “legitimate animal welfare organizations” are not qualified to comment because they “would not know what they are looking at.” Although the contracts must be approved annually, the board voted 4-3, after a lengthy 2011 meeting, to continue allowing elephant rides at the fair until at least 2014, when an occupational safety policy adopted by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums goes into effect. Beginning this September, facilities must limit training to protected contact rather if they want to retain the association’s accreditation. In free contact, elephants and handlers interact directly, while in protected contact there is a barrier between the two. La Jolla resident Lynn Bruser called the rides “savagery committed towards the elephants” and said they put a “blight”
on the city. She offered to reimburse the 22nd DAA, which oversees the stateowned fairgrounds, for any money lost if the rides were discontinued. Bruser said she believes there are legal and safety concerns with “a 5-year-old child on an elephant.” “This is not right and you know it,” she added. Bruser also asked directors at the February meeting to stop the rides. “You dismissed us like we were bored, rich housewives,” she said to Vice President Dave Watson, who was sitting in for President Fred Schenk last month. At that meeting, the board’s 2011 decision was reiterated by Watson, who voted against continuing the rides three years ago, saying the plan to revisit the issue after the 2014 fair was “kicking the can down the road.” Alison Stanley, director of The League of Humane Voters in Orange County, praised the board for a decision made earlier in the March 11 meeting to ban the use of electronic cigarettes at the fair. “It’s too bad that you also don’t take a stance on elephant abuse,” Stanley said. “With all the great events (at the fair) why do
you need elephant rides? Why do you need an event that potentially endangers elephants or supports abuse?” She said it is impossible to list safety and security as a No. 1 priority, as was stated during the e-cigs discussion, if the fair still allows elephant rides. She said if the directors continued the attraction, they were either “cowards or corrupt.” Britta Wilson, a former San Diego Zoo animal trainer, said protected contact ensures keeper safety and provides “no opportunity for the elephant to be abused.” “There’s a better way of training” than free contact, Wilson said. Kari Johnson said Have Trunk Will Travel discontinued its membership with AZA in November. “Their policies are no longer conducive to the good work we are able to do for elephants in terms of our breeding program, conservation efforts and ambassadorship,” she said. “A professional organization should incorporate in its policies consideration of the variety of TURN TO ELEPHANTS ON A18

fracture of her right tibia and fibula. She died six days later, with her broken leg listed as a contributing factor to her death. Byzak said that if it had not been for him, Emeritus staff would have never noticed her leg injury or taken her to the hospital. “It seemed like people were very concerned with losing their jobs rather than my grandmother,” he said. A statement from Emeritus Regional Director of Operations Debbie Infield affirmed most of the details of the accident. However that account claimed that Mensching did not complain of pain and said she wanted to continue the outing. But it also stated that the driver should have called 911 immediately after the accident as required by Emeritus policy. The driver was terminated for failing to do so. “The resident was a beloved member of our family
March 14, 2014 and her death was devastating to us,” the statement said. Byzak also cites problems with how the state investigated the circumstances of his grandmother’s death. The state community care licensing division cited Emeritus for staff’s failure to put a seatbelt on Mensching and call 911 immediately. But according to Byzak, the facility was only fined $150. “If they had illegally parked in my grandmother’s handicap parking spot, they could have been fined $250. But to kill her, they paid $150,” he said. He is currently suing Emeritus for abuse, neglect, wrongful death, and other charges in a civil suit. Byzak said the problems exemplified by his grandmother’s death are not limited to Emeritus but permeate long-term care facilities and skilled nursing facilities throughout the county and the state. So he founded Hazel’s Army last summer to advocate for legislation
that increases oversight of residential care facilities and to enhance consumer awareness. He collects accounts of elder neglect and abuse at the hands of other residential care facilities from people throughout San Diego via the Hazel’s Army Facebook page. He shares other’s experiences with local, county, and state officials as part of his advocacy work. He contributed to the District Attorney’s latest measures to investigate and prosecute crimes against the elderly, which were approved by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors on March 11. He knows that getting effective legislation passed will take years, but that has not deterred him. “It’s worth the investment of time because we are protecting our seniors,” he said. “My grandmother’s death is not going to be in vain.” For more information about Hazel’s Army, facebook.com/ visit HazelsArmy.
Marines relieved of duty after November explosion CAMP PENDLETON — Nov. 13, 2013, four Marines from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal community died as a result of a “training evolution” aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. As a result of the mishap, a command investigation was initiated by Brig. Gen. John Bullard, Commanding General, Marine Corps Installations West-Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. The investigation established that the exact cause of the explosion is indeterminate, as the only individuals with direct observation are deceased. Based on the findings of the investigation, the most probable cause of the explosion is a M430/ A1 40mm High Explosive Dual Purpose round was dropped, kicked, or bumped in the demolition
“Many of the training evolutions we conduct are inherently dangerous, especially when dealing with explosives and munitions. We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of four Marines during a training evolution; their loss is felt throughout the Marine Corps. We offer our heartfelt prayers and thoughts to the family members, and will continue to support them through this difficult time,” said Bullard. Post review of the command investigation, Bullard relieved the officer and staff non-commissioned officer in charge of Marine Corps Base Explosive Ordnance Disposal section of their duties on March 4, 2014, for loss of trust and confidence in their ability to ensure proper preparation for and conduct of EOD proficien-
cy training and lack of adherence to the established norms. Additionally, Bullard directed an immediate review and revision of existing policies and procedures for EOD training aboard all Marine Corps Installations West ranges. Revisions will include a requirement for more focused Operational Risk Management training on risk assessment, risk mitigation and appropriate levels of approval; specific coordination requirements for all EOD training requests; mandatory adherence to the range survey requirements contained in the Technical Manual EOD Procedures Surface Range Clearance; and the implementation of additional safety training requirements for EOD personnel not currently required by other directives.

OCEANSIDE — City Council took a different approach to this year’s budget workshop. Instead of being held at City Council chambers with digital displays and a live television feed, the March 12 workshop was held at a conference room at the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility and used hand written charts, handouts, and hands-on participation. The goal was to set priorities in the categories of police, fire, economic development, infrastructure, utilities, transportation, capital projects, community services, and administrative services. A general budget forecast of healthy growth and a one time $4 million surplus was shared. The task was to set priorities without looking at funds or expenses. This was considered “off point” to a few council members, especially with
categories like capital improvements that had single items costing over $10 million to rank. “It’s hard to make a decision on all of these when I’m not sure exactly what money is available,” Mayor Jim Wood said. “I can pick all of those, but we can’t pay for them.”
Lack of water stops growth quicker than everything else.” Jerry Kern Councilman, Oceanside
Following the meeting City Manager Steve Jepsen said council priorities will be weighed against available funds, and some priorities will not be implement-
During the process priorities that rose to the top were additional police patrol downtown, neighborhood policing, and gang prevention. Councilman Jerry Kern said it is a high priority to have additional police patrol downtown. “We have a new hotel, it’s a real economic driver for us,” Kern said. “We spend a ton of money getting people here. We want them to come back.” Wood said he sees the priority as having more police officers and letting the police chief make the decision on how to best use resources. Fire Department implementation of a citywide $8.5 million RSC radio system, and expendatures for a $500,000 apparatus replacement have already been approved. Smaller squad response vehicles, and fixed overtime for the Fire Department were prioritized
and will be brought back for further discussion. In regards to economic development, jobs creation and enhanced sales tax revenue were priorities, with some council members focusing on a citywide approach and others a regional approach. Priorities identified for utilities were local water supply development, and upgrades to the La Salina Wastewater Treatment Plant. Kern said it is important to the long-term health of the region’s economy to develop local water sources. “Lack of water stops growth quicker than everything else,” he said. The Water Conservation Master Plan, and Zero Waste Plan implementation are mandatory.

Oceanside composer makes the Olympics By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — A stellar ice-skating performance to a dramatic music score brought Canadian figure skater Kevin Reynolds an Olympic silver medal, and an Olympic moment to Oceanside composer Larry Groupe, who wrote the five-minute music compilation. Groupe said he got the news that his music was being used in the Olympics from his brother who lives on the east coast, and saw the Olympics three hours earlier than it aired in California. “I was completely stunned and thrilled,” Groupe said. “I didn’t know it was going to happen.” When Groupe tuned in and saw Reynolds skating to his 2009 soundtrack for “Excelsius” he said he was pleased, but surprised he had not heard from the skater, coach or Canadian team.
“I’m totally thrilled, but you would think they would send a postcard or something saying ‘thanks for the music’ just so I’d know it was on.” In most cases he is commissioned to compose music or receives a request to use it. The soundtrack used in the performance was made with the London Philharmonic orchestra, and laid down at a top recording facility. Work on the production took months. “It was a big epic series we did at the Abbey Road studios, the ultimate recording environment,” Groupe said. International exposure of the music is a feather in his cap. “After international rebroadcasts, some 2 billion people heard it,” Groupe said. “This is kind of like when I had music used on the Academy Awards.”
Groupe has still not heard from the figure skater or the Canadian team. His licensing agency, BMI, will follow up to determine the amount due and collect the royalties. Payment depends on the length of the selection, if there were vocals, and the size of the audience. “I don’t expect a huge windfall,” Groupe said. Groupe has won two Emmys, and been getting songwriting royalties for 20 years. He has written music for TV and movie soundtracks like “Commander In Chief,” “Straw Dogs,” “The Cable Guy,” “New Mission Impossible,” and “The Contender.” His music has been used in national television commercials, program promotions, and network advertising. Groupe said he loves what he does, but composing is a roller coaster busi-
ness. He is either composing or looking for his next opportunity. He said success in the industry has a lot to do with luck and timing. His passion for music keeps him fueled. Groupe conducts all his recorded compositions. “Hearing the music come back is an exhilarating moment,” Groupe said. Groupe said he thinks of composing as a musical puzzle to be solved. Job satisfaction comes from finding the right music to express the called for mood. When he has composed a movie soundtrack he will attend a screening, and watch the audience react to the music. If their responses follow the soundtrack he knows he got it right. “Music is a universal language,” Groupe said. “It expresses the generic human emotions we share.”

Hank Rieger passes away at 95 Henry “Hank” Rieger, a Los Angeles icon in the fields of news and public relations and former President of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (1973-75, 1977 - 1980), died Wednesday of old age in Oceanside, Calif. He was 95. For more than 20 years during the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, Rieger served as bureau chief for United Press International (UPI) in various cities, including Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco and New York. In 1953 he took a leave of absence from UPI to serve as press attaché for the U.S. Consul General in Singapore. He also briefly headed up press and publicity for the Southern California Gas Company. In 1965, he began a 15year run as West Coast Director of Press and Publicity for the NBC Television Network promoting such popular TV programs as “Bonanza,” “I Spy,” “Star Trek,” “Laugh In,” “Sanford and Son” and “The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson.” He traveled overseas with Bob Hope when the famed comic entertained US troops.

After leaving NBC in 1979 to operate his own PR firm, he became the West Coast PR representative for the then fledgling ESPN, a relationship he maintained until his death. He served the Television Academy for 40 years, first as President of the Hollywood Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), then as President of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Television Academy) and as editor and publisher of Emmy Magazine, the publication he created for the organization. In 1994 he was honored with the Television Academy’s Syd Cassyd Award in recognition of his long and distinguished service. “Hank Rieger worked tirelessly for many years on behalf of the television academy,” said Television Academy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Rosenblum. “He believed in The Academy’s ability to have a positive impact on the entire entertainment industry, and we are deeply grateful for all he contributed.” In the late 1960s and ‘70s, Rieger served as Vice
President of the Special Olympics in California. He was part of the Organizing Committee to bring the 1984 Summer Olympics to Los Angeles. Rieger was born on Sept. 20, 1918, in Kansas City, Mo. but grew up in Phoenix, Ariz. He attended the University of Arizona and the University of Southern California, where he later became an adjunct faculty member in the

While attending Ed drove a taxi at night — learning all the streets and shortcuts throughout the Chicago area. Ed got his first Sales Position at Salkover Metal Heat Treating Company. Edward’s sparkling blue eyes, charismatic smile, and humorous wit helped him excel at sales, and after four years he ventured off to start a company named “Hi Temp.” Much like his father, Edward was an inventor, and he went on to form two other heat-treating companies “Tru-Temp” and “Steele John Manuel Anselmo, 77 Carlsbad February 20, 2014 Carl K.

Runners look to bring back the mile Miracle League baseball is in a league of its own
By Tony Cagala
ENCINITAS — Co-founders of The Encinitas Mile race Daniel Seidel and Mark Sarno are looking to join in the movement of bringing back the mile. As North County runners, they appreciated the fact that there have been so few opportunities to run in a competitive mile-long race. On March 16, that will all change. The two runners are hosting the inaugural race, which they hope becomes an annual event. “There’s a whole movement across the United States to bring back the mile,” Sarno said. “It’s an iconic distance.” That movement, Bring Back the Mile project, is seeking to have the mile race distance brought back to the forefront. The 1500 meter or 1600 meter races don’t necessarily hold the same lore as when American runner Roger Bannister broke the sub-four minute mile barrier in 1954. The mile race is something that really captured the imaginations of a society certainly, Sarno explained. While part of their intent is to re-introduce the mile, Sarno added that it’s also a community event meant to inspire health and well-being. “A lot of experienced distance runners have reservations about running the mile,” Seidel said. “It’s so fast and it’s so intense.” At 3 minutes and 47 seconds, Steve Scott held the U.S. Men’s mile record from 1981 to 2007. He knows what running the mile is really like. As head coach of Cal State San Marcos’ track and field team, Scott will be on hand during the race in a guest role. He said the appeal of running the mile is not only

that it’s a good distance that people can compare their times to with each other, but that the mile is a meeting ground for someone that has a lot of speed and a lot of strength. “It’s a whole different race,” he said. “Any race is painful, but the longer the race, it’s a very dull pain, whereas in a mile, it’s more of an acute pain.” Scott described it further: “A longer race is like a toothache, where the mile is like a heart attack.” Though Scott may participate in the event, he has no urge to attempt to retake the record anymore. “The mile — it’s a challenge,” he said. “There’s so many people here these days that want to challenge themselves…people are really interested in challenging themselves and I think that this would be an opportunity to…see how fast you can run a mile.” When Bannister broke the four-minute mile, everyone was captivated by it, he explained. “That’s a measuring point, too,” Scott said. “It’s like, ‘OK, how close to four minutes can I get.’” The racecourse begins

at the corner of F Street and Vulcan Avenue. Runners will head south for a half-mile before turning around at Santa Fe Drive and heading back. “Our course is very fast,” said Seidel. The USATF-certified course is such that it will also allow people to watch the race unfold from start to finish. The organizers are anticipating about 500 runners so far and registration will remain open until the day of the event. Cash prizes are being rewarded to the elite men’s and women’s race placers, with portions of the race proceeds going to support the MEB Foundation and Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego. The current world record holder for the men’s mile is Morocco’s Hicham El Guerrouig with a time of 3 minutes and 43 seconds. Russia’s Svetlana Materkov holds the women’s mile record with a time of 4 minutes and 12 seconds. Seidel said he didn’t think they’d see any subfour minute mile runners this time around, but he added that some of the runners participating could do
the mile in less than four minutes and 20 seconds. What about a mile under the current record time? “I think that as we’ve learned throughout history, that setting up a barrier and saying, ‘Oh, we’ll never see someone break that barrier’ is unrealistic,” Scott said. “I think that barriers are meant to be broken, and who would’ve thought years ago…they were looking at a four minute mile. Now we’re looking at a 3:43 — maybe someone going under 3:40. “We’re definitely getting to the upper limits, but I think that’s mankind. Each generation keeps getting stronger and fitter,” he said.

The kid charging up the hill said it all: “Go Padres!” Not the local nine at Petco Park, mind you. Instead we’re awaiting the first pitch from the Miracle League tykes sharing the same name. And a likewise affection for a sport which is getting into the swing of things. A peak at a hollering Josh Bigelow scrambling from the parking lot to the San Dieguito Regional Park diamond brings a sparkle to anyone’s eyes. His joy for baseball this Saturday morning has built all offseason. His favorite time of the year is finally here, and if you’re smart, you’ll share in this unconditional love for baseball. “This is such a feelgood,’’ said Josh’s mother, Julie, and how did she notice my goose bumps? “Life is good.’’ Yes it is. Especially to the nearly 300 players with various physical obstacles often forcing them into organized sports’ shadows. For reasons difficult to explain and hard to imagine, these athletes are challenged in ways that would deter many. But not Josh -- excuse me, I’ve been corrected. That’s Big Josh, a precious 11-year-old with his Padres hat resting crooked on his red-headed noggin’ which rises above an adorable mug loaded with freckles. “He’s always been Big Josh,’’ Julie said. “And now he finally is.’’ Big Josh dons his No. 2 Padres jersey with the pride of any pro. He’s at the Miracle League’s opening day, just like every spring since 2007 when the curtain lifted on this true San Diego sports treasure. The Miracle League is a gift which arrives each March, featuring engaged players marching to their own beat. Some lean on walkers to reach the bases; some use wheelchairs to speed around the bags. All have “buddies” which assist them on the field, but also form friendships with them off it. Big Josh has Annika, 15, and don’t we all wish someone was so thoughtful in looking out for us. “She’s unbelievable,’’ Julie said. So is Big Josh,and he’s about to demonstrate it. In a move many his age aren’t keen with, he shows a visitor how he fake bunts,
then pulls his bat back in order to get a hit. He absorbed the technique from watching his sister participate in competitive softball. It’s at those games that Big Josh would often sneak into her dugout, proclaiming that he got to play, too. Now Big Josh has his own dugout, even if Julie recalls doctors telling her his limitations meant a life as a spectator. “They said he would never get to play the game,’’ she said. “Now he gets to play.’’ And Julie gets to watch, a three-inning break from tracking her son, 24/7. Not only do those dealt a tough hand in life get a breather, but ditto their dedicated parents. “It gives us a respite,’’ Julie said. But there’s no rest in keeping up with Big Josh or his Miracle League counterparts. While chatting with Big Josh, we hear from Ernie Martinez, the noted San Diego sports talk radio show host, that the Diamondbacks’ Steven Dixon just smacked a tworun homer. Martinez, like countless others, donates his time as the public-address announcer, introducing each batter with style and substance. The games always end in a tie, as having a loser anywhere near this weekly sun-splashed event just wouldn’t be right. “It looks like they really have a good time,’’ said Ian Broadbooks, 11, a Miracle League buddy. “And it just makes you feel good to help out.’’ Right on, Ian, and here’s where you can assist. The Miracle League is having a fundraiser to let more kids like Big Josh wrap their arms around baseball, and really, so much more. Those with big hearts and loose wallets can purchase an inscribed brick at miracleleagueofsandiego. org. It’ll be placed at the Miracle League’s customized Engel Family Field, the one so graciously built by the Padres. That’s the real Padres, or are you like me, more inclined to think they reside on Big Josh’s squad? “When I watch my daughter’s games, they are always chasing the trophy,’’ Julie said. “At the Miracle League games, we already have it.’’ Big Josh’s grin proves it.

Solana Beach Little League kicks off 57th season By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — Two-time World Series champion Aubrey Huff offered some good-sportsmanship advice during Solana Beach Little League’s opening day ceremony, but it wasn’t all for the players. “To the parents, no one is getting drafted this year so let the kids have fun,” said Huff, who won baseball’s premier contest with the San Francisco Giants in 2010 and 2012. With his son Jayce by his side, Huff also shared his journey into Major League Baseball, which began in Little League. “I was the last batter in T-ball, which meant I could hit it past the pitcher,” he said. “That’s when my love of baseball started.” When Huff was 6, his father passed away so his mother went to work. “I spent a lot of time at my grandmother’s house,” he said. “She would underhand plastic balls to me. When I hit them they would always head toward her house.” Fearful he might break a window, his grandmother suggested he hit left-handed. He took her advice and to this day bats left and throws right. Huff said he wasn’t the greatest player in high school, hitting only one home run. “Everyone told me I’d never make it in the pros, but I had a dream and I worked hard.” As a junior college walk-on, “I kept dreaming,” he said. Huff eventually earned a scholarship
I was the last batter in T-ball, which meant I could hit it past the pitcher.” Aubrey Huff World Series champion
to the University of Miami, was drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and played for several other teams during the next decade. “After nine years of losing seasons, I started wondering if I really wanted to do this,” he said. Then Huff signed with the Giants in 2010. Growing up in Texas, Huff was a Rangers fan. When he hit a game-winning two-run homer against that team in Game 4 of the 2010 World Series, Huff said he didn’t recall going from second base to the plate. “I ran past second and looked in the stands and I remembered being there as a kid for hot-dog Tuesdays,” he said. “It was like a dream come true. I was living that dream. “So don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something,” he said. “This is

about working hard, having a good time and being good sports,” said Huff, who is managing his son’s T-ball team. County Supervisor Dave Roberts, who has two sons in the league this year, kicked off the March 8 event at Solana Vista Elementary School, which marked the 57th year of Solana Beach Little League. “What could be more American than Little League?” asked Roberts, a Solana Beach resident and former Little League Manager Nico Marcolongo leads his Fightin’ Phils in the seventh-inning stretch song, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” player who presented the league president with a certificate of recognition from the county. The one-hour ceremony also included a parade of teams, ceremonial first pitches, local student Brynn Forrester singing the national anthem, a Presentation of the Colors by the U.S. Marine Corps, entertainment by the youth group Too Loud and the official announcement to “Play ball!” This year about 400 boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 14 will play on 36 teams in seven divisions: Juniors, Majors, AAA, AA, A, Rookie and T-Ball. The more than two dozen 12-year-olds who will play their last season in Little League were also recognized. League president Dave Pawlowski, who is managing one of the Majors Division teams, said when he began coaching some of those players eight years ago it was more like herding cats. “The first day we had everything from a bloody nose to a kid crying because he wanted to go home,” Pawlowski said. “Now these boys are the backbone of Solana Beach Little League.”

requires a minimum bid of $9.5 million. Resident Scott Chatfield said he empathizes with the district’s frustration, but said moving forward with the auction is a “death sentence.” “To sell out now because of exhaustion and budget issues is wrong,” Chatfield said. “It’s obviously wrong. You can feel it in the air tonight; it’s a horrible mistake.” Chatfield started SavePacificView.org, an online campaign urging the board to halt the auction. Using the website, residents have sent 500 emails to the school board and city council. The website also urged the public to gather at the meeting and speak their minds on Pacific View. Resident Darius Degher said the district

project’s parking impact. Based on the size of the space it’s renting, Leucadia Club has to provide seven parking spaces, and city code requires a parking space for every three visitors. Rounding down, city staff arrived at 20 as a member ceiling. “If all the members drove cars, they would exceed the parking supply,” Dichoso said. Because there’s uncertainty over exactly how many members could show up day-to-day, the condition would also ease neighbor-
elephant-holding facilities achieve the highest care and safety standards possible.” “A policy defined by the lowest common denominator is a disservice to elephants and to the dedicated elephant keeping staff in AZA facilities that have produced stellar elephant care, breeding and educational programs.” In response, AZA President Jim Maddy wrote that he respected the decision of Have Trunk Will Travel, which he described as a “valued member” of the organization since 1991. “Your contributions to the conservation of Asian elephants and your devotion
to the welfare of the species are well-known,” the letter stated. Fred Schenk, 22nd DAA president, said the board will likely vote on this year’s contract for Have Trunk Will Travel at the April meeting. The company is now accredited by the Zoological Association of America, which Kari Johnson describes as “a similar organization with standards for animal care that recognizes the value of human/elephant interaction.” At press time Schenk did not return an email indicating whether that would affect the board’s decision on the contract.
shouldn’t sell the property to shore up its budget. “Budgets go up and down — they’re fluctuating, short-term events,” Degher said, adding that the district should preserve the property’s longterm legacy. Several residents mentioned that John S. Pitcher deeded the 2.8acre property to the district in 1883. Sealed bids will be opened at the March 25 auction. Trustee Emily Andrade said she’s hopeful that bids contain an arts center. Trustee Carol Skiljan encouraged residents to show up at Wednesday night’s council meeting to ask the city to participate in the auction. “Please use your energy in that direction,” Skiljan said. As a result, many of those who spoke at the school board meeting also delivered impassioned
speeches at the council meeting. The council voted unanimously to send a letter to the school board requesting another meeting regarding Pacific View before the auction. If the board can’t meet prior to that, the city is asking the board to consider postponing the auction. “There is still some time before the auction, and I think we should do everything that we can to have one more meeting,” Councilman Tony Kranz said, adding that an alternative like joint use of the property could make a deal feasible. A month ago, the city council declined to take part in the auction. Council members stated the property isn’t worth the minimum bid under the current zoning. The district, however, believes the site could be rezoned, accounting for the site’s proposed value.
hood concerns, he added. However, Armstrong said the limit is unfair, because the city doesn’t scrutinize how much parking Leucadia restaurants offer when looking to open. After the meeting, Dichoso said the city’s code enforcement officers would be responsible for enforcing the 20-member condition. They work on a complaint basis, not proactively. Another condition forbids the club from renting out its space to third parties for outside events. A similar condition was imposed on the Carlsbad Woman’s Club after large crowds there resulted in neighbor
concerns. The club hasn’t applied for a beer and wine license, but it might do so in the future, according to members. The commission also set the club’s daily hours as 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Commissioner Glenn O’Grady, the sole vote against the motion, agreed with all of the conditions. But he wanted the club to close at 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, since those are school nights, he said. Charlie McDermott, who is on the club’s board of directors, declined to comment after the meeting regarding when the club will open.
Maryon said that Operation Stonegarden acts as a force multiplier by uniting so many different agencies. He added that when he started his law enforcement career 21 years ago, such collaboration and coordination did not exist. “When I worked patrol, there was no commitment like that. I think Stonegarden has really brought things together,” he said. Even outside of planned operations, such partnerships add extra sets of eyes on the lookout for suspicious activity along the shore. Border Patrol agents said they frequently get tips from local police officers, sheriff’s deputies, and citizens about people staking out a beach to pick up smuggled people and contraband or unusual boats out on the water at odd hours. To intercept illegal activity along the coast, Border Patrol agents in the county utilize intelligence to apply a risk-based approach to their surveillance activities. Border Patrol collects intelligence via interviews with apprehended smugglers, intercepted communication from seized cell phones, tracing contraband back to its source, and other methods. Agents then utilize the information to determine where and when to look for smuggling activity. “We get a pretty good idea of... where (smugglers) are landing, so we allocate

High School District is planning on opening a new middle school in the Pacific Highlands Ranch area in fall, 2015. The new school, which has yet to be named, will open with a seventh-grade class of around 200-220 students in 2015 and then expand to both seventh & eighth grades in 2016 with an initial enrollment of 500 students. The district plans to draw 500 students to the new school from the Carmel Valley Middle School attendance area which has an enrollment of over 1,500. A future construction phase will add capacity for another 500 students as Pacific Highlands Ranch develops for a total enrollment of about 1,000. District staff are considering boundary options

our resources to address a specific threat in the areas that we are vulnerable,” explained Liebes. San Diego County’s Border Patrol branch consists of more than 40 agents who rotate on nightly patrol shifts along different stretches of beaches. On the ground, they inspect the coastline and water with heat-sensing binoculars to detect people and incoming vessels. But agents are also armed with information gathered by drones, manned multi-enforcement aircraft, radars on the beaches, and other surveillance technology. They remain in constant communication with other agents and other law enforcement officials with radios and cell phones. According to local agents, their efforts in the county have proved effective. “We are not seeing the number of events here in San Diego County as we were before... so that is a measure to our success,” Liebes said. Though the number of local maritime events has declined, Border Patrol has observed smugglers travelling farther out to sea and farther north to make drops to avoid law enforcement. “I think due to the success of the agents operating in this area, having that enforcement posture here, we’ve kind of pushed the traffic out,” Liebes said. “We moved them further out into the water, we’ve made it more difficult for them. We know that it hits their pocket book as well in terms of logistics of
what it takes for them to move their cargo further north to circumvent law enforcement.” Despite Border Patrol’s continued efforts to thwart maritime smuggling and the accidental deaths that can come with it, agents acknowledge that there is only so much that can be done to prevent smuggling by sea. California’s coastline is vast; the Pacific Ocean is expansive, and Border Patrol only has so much intelligence, so many tools and so many personnel. Maritime smuggling is versatile and can come in many forms, said Liebes. An event can be one person swimming across the border, a couple of people dashing from one coast to another on a jet ski, a traveler slipping multiple people or pounds of drugs into a marina on a recreational vessel. Agents cannot predict and intercept every single maritime smuggling event. Dropping off a boatload of people or drugs into a waiting van on the beach can take minutes. Sometimes events just slip under the radar. There is no real way that Border Patrol can accurately determine how many illegal maritime events are occurring in the county and the rest of the state. Even harder is trying to determine what percentage law enforcement is apprehending. “A lot of the times, you don’t know what you don’t know,” Liebes said.
to present to the Board of Trustees later this year. The district has been working with both the Del Mar Union and Solana Beach Elementary school districts to align the middle school and elementary boundaries. Eric Dill, the district’s associate superintendent of business, said the district wants to avoid splitting elementary boundaries so that all sixth graders would progress to the same middle school together. The site is adjacent to the district’s Canyon Crest Academy (CCA), but will operate as a separate school with set neighborhood boundaries. The new middle school is in the Torrey Pines High School attendance area, but students will be able to apply to attend CCA through the district’s high school selection process. The school site is currently being graded in
preparation for construction, which will start this summer. The budget for the first phase of the middle school design, construction and land purchase is $52.5 million. Funding to build the new middle school is provided by Proposition AA, the district’s $449 million general obligation bond, which local voters approved in November, 2012. “We are grateful for the community’s investment in our schools,” said Dill. “The new middle school is our biggest project and is only possible because of the local funds raised by the bond measure.”

strooms. Wood said he would like to see the $600k already set aside to move sand from the San Luis Rey River to the beach, to be redirected to repair potholes. A lot of interest was shown in completing longterm transportation goals, although there were differing priorities on which efforts should be focused on. The list included Coast Highway planning and Mission Avenue implementation, which are now in progress, and road maintenance. Also on the list was the Oceanside Boulevard Vision Plan, and Rancho del Oro interchange. The budget process started weeks before the workshop with an extensive one on one interview with each council member by Teri Bianca, TB Enterprises principle consultant. Each council member went over the nine categories of staff recommendations and prioritized them. At the workshop a summary of council members’ priorities was shared. Then council publicly reviewed and ranked the top three priorities in each category. Physically putting a

hind,” Dill said. “We weren’t sure if we were going to move forward with a bond, but we still required a long-term facilities plan.” For an idea of what was needed at campuses and the cost, the district requested proposals from architecture and construction firms, known as RFPs. A district finance team further evaluated the pool of applicants based on school construction expertise, history and fee structures. Several months later, once the district had estimates and blueprints, it needed a way to fund projects. At that point, it looked as though SDUHSD was going to put a bond on the ballot. District staff then prequalified 10 firms that proved their mettle during the master-planning process. “We looked at this as a very prudent long-term interview process, as opposed to what many agencies do,” Dill said. “They pass a bond, they put out RFPs, they get documents and then they have interviews. Based on a half-hour interview, they assign $12 million worth of work. “We actually got to test drive all of these groups,” he added. Of those 10 prequalified firms, which includes four architecture firms, three construction businesses and three finance companies, all contributed to the Prop AA campaign. Looking at the 10 biggest contributions to the campaign, eight were from prequalified firms. Five of them each contributed $25,000, later receiving valuable contracts.
T he C oast News red, blue or yellow sticker on the top three priorities in each category, allowed a crude, yet graphic visual, which was followed by discussion. Jepsen said he was pleased with workshop discussion. “At first it was a little messy,” Jepsen said. “Towards the end the dialogue was way better.” Bianco said the expectations shared by council members in the pre-interview and listed anonymously in workshop handouts were telling. Council’s expectations going into the workshop ranged from zero expectations, I think we’re wasting our time, to a 5-0 decision to move forward on a plan, and clear direction to staff to implement our top priorities. Bianco said the workshop technique was effective in setting priorities without idealology. “It’s a good process for digging into issues with your hands, head and heart.” A summary of workshop findings, and further budget discussion will continue at the April 2 City Council meeting. The workshop did not allow time for community comments. Contributions for the bond totaled $213,317. The majority came from prequalified companies, while a mix of other contractors and parents made up the remainder of donations. Dill stressed that contract amounts are subject to negotiations and competitive rates. Also, if the district isn’t happy with a firm, he said they could opt to go with another firm on future projects. And many contracts have gone out to firms that weren’t prequalified. For instance, the district has received numerous bids for work on the second phase of the San Dieguito Academy field construction. So far, the district has issued $160 million in Prop AA bonds. The money from that first draw should continue to fund projects for the next year. District staff recommends contracts to SDUHSD’s board, which ultimately must approve them. Staff members and the board haven’t talked about contributions with potential firms, neither before, during or after the bond campaign, Dill said. “There was no overt and no implied expectation,” Dill said. “I myself don’t know who made donations to the campaign.” While unspoken, because firms were prequalified beforehand, could that process have encouraged them to contribute? “That’s their own internal business decision that they would make, whether this is worthy of supporting and at what level,” Dill said. “Corporations make lots of investments in things that they think will bring a return,” he added.
REQUIREMENTS CONTINUED FROM A7
years of social science, four years of English, three years of math, two years of laboratory science, two years of foreign language, one year of visual and performing arts, and one year of a college prep elective. Comparatively, the state’s minimum high school graduation requirements mandate three years of social sciences, three years of English, two years of math, two years of science, two years of physical education, and one year of foreign language or visual and performing arts. Just over 60 percent of this year’s senior class at CUSD’s high schools currently meets the A-G requirements, according to Lovely. CVA does not offer all of the courses required by A-G standards, including foreign languages and certain sciences classes. This would force students to take those classes at Carlsbad High School in a more traditional setting. The additional classes would also obligate students to stay at school for longer during the day, which could hinder students who work or take care of their families. But districts that allow contributions — no matter if firms are selected before or after the bond campaign — open the door for conflict of interest issues, said Anton Jungherr, co-founder of the California League of Bond Oversight Committees, a group that educates oversight committees on school bonds. “The timing (of a contribution) doesn’t matter… it’s still troublesome,” Jungherr said. When contributions are a significant factor, he added that it’s difficult for board members and district staff to stay independent and give taxpayers the best deal. Regardless, Jungherr said it’s legal for firms to contribute to a bond campaign. However, sometimes the relationship between school officials and companies can get too cozy. In Chula Vista’s Sweetwater Union High School District, officials have indicted 15 people in connection with school bond corruption. Some board members reportedly accepted meals, trips and tickets for plays in exchange for influencing bond contracts. In response to increasing concerns over pay-to-play issues, several districts across the nation have voluntarily decided they won’t take contributions for bonds. And Cajon Valley Union School District in El Cajon capped donations at $2,000 for its 2012 bond. One taxpayer group supported Prop AA, while two came out against it. Even with the opposition, Prop AA just cleared the 55 percent threshold needed to pass. The measure increased property taxes for those in the
The ultimate concern of staff and the Board was that if all CVA students were required to meet the full A-G requirements, fewer of them would graduate and more of them would drop out. No other continuation high school in San Diego County requires comple-
non-college prep science class, and a foreign language or an elective class. CVA students will also only need 210 credits to graduate rather than the 230 credits required at CUSD’s comprehensive high schools. Trustee Elisa Williamson expressed that she felt
I don’t want to see CVA as a dumping ground. It has been a dumping ground and it has been an embarrassment.” Ann Tanner Board President, CUSD
tion of A-G classes for graduation, according to CUSD staff. The Board of Trustees voted unanimously to remove some of the A-G class and credit requirements needed for graduation from CVA per CUSD staff’s recommendation. The decision will allow CVA students to graduate once they have completed three years of math up through Geometry rather than up to Algebra II, one college prep and one district by about $23 per $100,000 of assessed home value. State law forbids districts from using public funds to support a bond campaign. Friends of San Dieguito School and Yes on Prop AA — a group made up of parents — raised money for the bond. In some cases, the Friends of San Dieguito School asked for contributions from firms, while in other instances the companies approached the organization, said the group’s Co-Chairman Brad Shoen. He noted that a number of parents in favor of Prop AA also donated to the campaign, adding that a list of contributors was posted online for the public to review before the Prop AA election. “You could see who was donating — this was all transparent,” Shoen said.
Competitive versus negotiated sales
One of the $25,000 donations to the Prop AA campaign came from De La Rosa & Co., Prop AA’s underwriter. Donations from underwriters have drawn increased scrutiny from lawmakers and the public in recent years. Underwriters are essentially middlemen that buy bonds from districts and sell them to investors. For the first $160 million issuance, De La Rosa earned a fee of $750,000. Before the election, the district reviewed the backgrounds of four potential underwriters and went with De La Rosa. Then, SDUHSD went about negotiating directly with De La Rosa over the firm’s fee, what’s known as a negotiated sale. Jungherr said this
comfortable with the different graduation standards knowing that the classes offered at CVA were rigorous and not “watered down.” She said she would much prefer that CVA students receive strong instruction through Geometry rather than dropping out in the face of Algebra II. “Career and college ready for every student means something different,” said Trustee Veronica Williams. “There is a cost practice invites contributions, because underwriters want a measure to pass so they can earn money from selling bonds. To land taxpayers the best deal, Jungherr said districts should go with a competitive sale. That approach involves firms competing by offering the lowest interest rate after the election. Due to the size of school bonds, even a small difference in the interest rate can have a big impact on the debt repayment. Dill said De La Rosa was chosen because of the firm’s history with the district and history of locking in low rates for school bonds. The firm did not respond to requests to comment. Dan McAllister, the county’s elected tax collector, said he’s heard arguments both for and against competitive versus negotiated underwriter agreements. “Some would argue, if negotiated, you can get a better deal, because it’s relationship based,” McAllister said. On the other hand, others say a competitive process results in the lowest interest rate due to firms vying for the best rates, he added. “I’ve seen both done, and both done well,” McAllister said.
Legislation targeting pay-to-play
Lawmakers’ attempts to rein in underwriter and contractor contributions have failed in recent years due to opposition from construction and finance firms, as well as from school districts. “School districts don’t know how they can pass
for students who are not graduating.” But Board President Ann Tanner raised the issue of CVA’s reputation and academic rigor with lower course standards. “I don’t want to see CVA as a dumping ground. It has been a dumping ground and it has been an embarrassment,” she said. “That diploma (from CVA) has to mean something.” Tanner requested that staff work on a way to develop stronger curriculum and raise graduation rates at the school. Rio Dobbs, who graduated from CVA early last Friday, said that before attending the school, she was failing almost every single class. “I let myself down, but CVA lifted me up,” she said, advocating for the school. “I am no number at CVA. At CHS (Carlsbad High School), I was on the roll call, but they didn’t know who I was.” Williamson questioned Tanner’s comments, saying that CVA has changed in the past few years for the better. She acknowledged that the school still needs improvement but said, “Our staff has done wonderful things for those kids.” these bond measures without the financial support of the people giving the money, and the only people with a vested interest that benefit are parents and contractors,” McAllister said. Some have also made the argument that limiting financial firms from donating tramples on their 1st Amendment rights, he noted. The newest legislation, AB 621, is a bill that would prohibit school districts from doing business with underwriters and financial advisors who contribute to a campaign. However, the bill has been stalled in the Senate’s Governance and Finance Committee. Also, with the prevalence of underwriter donations, several years ago, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board required that bond underwriters report contributions to the agency. The board is reviewing that data to gauge if new regulations might be necessary. McAllister said it’s potentially suspect when contractors make up the majority of contributions to a campaign and then are awarded contracts after the bond passes. Yet he believes SDUHSD mitigated pay-toplay concerns by prequalifying contractors beforehand. “I think that it does help to mitigate concerns and ameliorate the perception of a conflict of interest, when the contractors and team is selected in advance of the ballot measure,” McAllister said. “If it happens after that, then it becomes a wink and a nod deal…and I’m not sure that’s as transparent as San Dieguito’s attempting to be,” he said.

Feel the need? Turbo-charged fun fuels throwback to 1960s and ‘70s road films By Noah S. Lee
It sputters occasionally when it comes to plot, characters, and acting, but “Need for Speed” is built to specifications ordered by the crowd wanting to see it win the big race. Hard times have fallen on Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic whose auto shop faces foreclosure. So when wealthy entrepreneur and acquaintance Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper) makes him an offer he can’t refuse, Tobey finds himself instead being
framed for manslaughter. Following his release from prison, Tobey joins forces with a savvy exotic car dealer (Imogen Poots) to avenge his friend’s death — and the only way to do that is by participating in a high-stakes racing tournament. I’ve never played the “Need for Speed” video games, so I can’t comment on how this film differs from the source material quality-wise. What I can say, however, is that it’s easy to enjoy 130 minutes of turbo-charged fun when the only things you have on your mind are fast cars, intense stunts, and above all else, enthusiasm.

(“Act of Valor”) recognizes this particular mindset, and therefore resorts to vehicular maneuvers that leave the viewer’s heart pounding fast. I, too, experienced such a feeling when witnessing the various cars’ drivers putting the pedal to the metal over and over again, and that’s the kind of rush you don’t want to end. As someone who isn’t into high-octane driving, I’ll admit that I found the continuous bursts of adrenaline to be invigorating. Waugh’s success in the action genre lies within his use of clear-cut camerawork and practical effects, and those two qualities alone are worthy of respect. The former guarantees that we will get a good look at what’s happening to the cast and cars, and the latter imbues the set pieces with an air of authenticity. Whether the heroes are cruising down the highway or dodging cops and bounty hunters, every move they make possesses a raw intensity pleasing to the eye. In spite of its terrific engine performance, “Need for Speed” can’t quite avoid the two obvious bumps in the road labeled “plot” and “character development.” This is hardly surprising: predictable plots and two-dimensional characters are cornerstones of the action genre, and especially of adaptations of popular video games. After all, for a film such as “Need for Speed,” the main at-

tractions are the cars and daredevil moments, not the drivers and narrative structure. To somewhat remedy this issue Waugh has managed to weave a simplistic storyline into the film that, for all intents and purposes, meets the target audience’s expectations. Plus, the actors’ performances are workable to the point where you could at least care about whether or not their injuries from a collision are serious. Long story short, if you’re fine with plot and character taking a backseat to the non-stop action, go ahead and take this vehicle for a spin. The acting quality in “Need for Speed” is by no means good, but it gets the job done in a manner that is anything other than terrible. And that’s pretty much what we ask for, right? OK, so for starters,
Aaron Paul is not half bad as a leading man; he pulls off being focused, frantic, friendly, and furious at the right moments. As Tobey Marshall, he shifts mood gears whenever the route he is taking requires him to do so, taking the audience on a wild ride. Dominic Cooper is suitably arrogant, channeling Edward Norton’s “The Italian Job” baddie to create Dino Brewster’s traitorous demeanor. Imogen Poots imbues her Julia Maddon with a witty sophistication, though her role as the love interest feels rather obligatory. Kid Cudi, Ramón Rodríguez, and Rami Malek provide the audience with a truckload of wisecracks, with Cudi as the de facto ringleader. Michael Keaton, on the other hand, disappoints with his over-the-top line
delivery. I mean, I get it that he’s supposed to be this eccentric car racing host, but did he really have to smother us with so much flamboyance? Go on, thrill-seekers — accelerate full throttle when driving “Need for Speed,” but don’t be shocked if you feel riding this vehicle once is good enough afterwards.

Exhibit of artwork featuring women packs a punch By Promise Yee
ENCINITAS — “One Woman’s Journey” at the Encinitas Community Center Gallery packs a pretty powerful punch. “Women aren’t just mothers or whores,” Encinitas Mayor Teresa Barth said. “Maybe we have both in all of us.” As part of the exhibit select photos by renowned photographer Francine Filsinger depict women’s empowerment and vulnerability. “The Generational Empowerment of Women” is a series of black and white ink jet print photos by Filsinger that tell an allegorical story of women’s historical barriers and strives to overcome those limits. In the first photo a quiet yet determined woman is locked behind an iron gate. Through the photos she secures a key, unlocks the gate, and hands the key to a young girl. Filsinger said the final photo depicts self-empowerment. Museum Oceanside of Art executive director Daniel Foster described the works as quiet and understated photos that speak loudly. “Aftermath” is a more stirring collection of photos in which Filsinger tells the story of isolation and abuse. There are no bruises or overt physical acts portrayed. Instead Filsinger tells a more rioting story in the posture and expressions of a woman and partial glimpses of a shirtless man. In “Aftermath” Filsinger uses herself as a model and is almost unrecognizable in the photos. She explained she set up each shot, and used the timer on her camera to allow herself to get into the frame and pose. “It’s a voice for the voiceless, to empower those who feel powerless to reach

Filsinger said the common thread her photos share is that they stir a memory or trigger an emotion in the viewer.
“They evoke a response at an emotional spiritual level, that when you walk away from the photo it still stays with you,” Filsinger said. “It’s more than a pretty picture.” Also included in the exhibit are a variety of works from members of the Oceanside Museum of Art Artist Alliance, with women as the subject. “There are all types of female figures from different perceptions,” Filsinger
said. “The artists involved at Oceanside Museum of Art are very, very insightful. It’s not your stereotypical artwork.” Filsinger said the message of the exhibit is to let women know they are not alone in their triumphs and tragedies. An opening reception was held March 8, to coincide

The war at home Never mind the international strife. I’m convinced we are about to be taken over by small, creepy bugs. If it isn’t the head lice at school, it’s ants at my house, inside and out. I have held my ground thus far, but a careless crumb or pat on the head could turn the tide. And just the mention of them makes me itch for days. The resilience of head lice continues to astound me. We are not in the middle Ages. We are an advanced civilization and most of us have hot and cold running water available and lots of soaps, salves and chemicals at our disposal. And yet, every year, without fail, normal kids from normal families turn up with head lice. We have conquered polio, measles and a dozen other fatal diseases, but these revolting little creatures just won’t go away. I wonder where exactly they hang out between the time each child checks out clean and the next breakout six months later. And the ants will take the day by a combination of numbers and stealth. Every time I work in the garden, I end up with one crawling in my hair or up my arm. I’m pretty certain if you could X-ray my house and yard, you would find a giant ant farm un der every surface. There is no predicting their house attacks. Sometimes it’s TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B15

Capturing the moments
Carlsbad-based Upper Deck has been able to succeed in a world laden with smartphones and other digital distractions By Tony Cagala
CARLSBAD — A walk through the Upper Deck headquarters shows the amount of new projects either being readied for production or researched for development. Images of cartoon and comic characters line walls; Marvel games and Hello Kitty items fill shelves. Framed images of some of the most iconic athletes in the world, complete with autographs hang near employees’ cubicles. At its most basic level, Upper Deck might better be known for its sports trading cards more than anything else; though the company’s President Jason Masherah will say that the company has always been more diversified than that. “At the end of the day, the best way to define us is as a ‘collectable company.’” Masherah said. In February, the company celebrated its 25th anniversary.
In addition to the sports trading card division, Upper Deck is bolstered by their authenticated memorabilia and gaming and entertainment trading card divisions. In a world laden with smartphones, iPads and other technologies, how does the company maintain its relevance? “In trading cards,” Masherah said, “what’s nice for us is, you can’t replace an autograph or a piece of a game-used jersey digitally. Those are things that bring you closer to the athlete or the entertainer that you can’t replicate on a digital basis.” There have been efforts to introduce technologies into the cards — in 2011, the company introduced “Evolution,” a series of video trading cards. The cards were the size of regular trading cards, though included a 60 second clip of an athlete that was shown in a small video screen. In 1999, Upper Deck also created the “Power Deck,” cards that could be traded digitally. “But at the end of the day, you’re still rooted in that physical element of the cards,” Masherah said. The company even went so far to insert security holograms in their cards to help prevent counterfeiting that was once rampant in the memorabilia indusTURN TO UPPER DECK ON B15
Animal safehouse is for pets of domestic violence victims By Promise Yee
ENCINITAS — The Rancho Coastal Humane Society Animal Safehouse Program is one step forward in supporting victims and ending the cycle of domestic violence. John Van Zante, Rancho Coastal Humane Society public relations director, said when the humane society heard there was a need for the service they stepped forward and offered to shelter pets and allow victims to move forward. Van Zante said sometimes having a pet is one more reason for victims of domestic violence to stay in an unhealthy, unsafe household. Shelters for women and children are usually not equipped to accommodate pets. The animal safehouse allows victims and their children to get out of an unhealthy environment sooner, and be less likely to continue the cycle of abuse. “It’s a safety net for pets,” Van Zante said. The humane society shelters pets for 90 days. After that the owner can decide to put the pet up for
adoption. Van Zante said most domestic violence victims relinquish ownership of their pet immediately. “Realistically they know they cannot turn things around in 90 days,” Van Zante said. “It’s one less thing on their plate to worry about.” Once the pet is received, the humane society conducts a medical examination and behavior evaluation of the animal. Any needed medical attention and behavior therapy is given. Some pets can be put up for adoption right away. Others need time to overcome injuries. “An abuser may be using a dog or cat as mental abuse against their spouse or children,” Van Zante said. “Sometimes they’re just fine.” Van Zante said pets that have witnessed domestic violence are sometimes initially timid, but once they receive attention and affection they make very loving pets. “They’re possibly more loving,” Van Zante said. “They’re highly TURN TO SAFEHOUSE ON B15

Odd Files Judge tentatively rules in SDCWA’s favor By Chuck Shepherd By Rachel Stine
Sobering Signs In February, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that David Bell could not avoid being charged with DUI merely because he had been sober enough to pass all six “field sobriety tests” administered during a traffic stop. It was enough, the court said, that he had admitted drinking that night. A few days later, the Austin American—Statesman reported on Texan Larry Davis’ struggle to clear the 2013 DWI arrest from his record —— since he had blown a 0.0 alcohol reading that night and then had voluntarily undergone a blood test for other impairing drugs and come up clean on that. Davis had admitted to “one drink,” but allegedly failed a “field sobriety test” (in the opinion of the arresting officer, anyway). (Davis’ case is still unresolved, but since he has been declared an “indigent,” the state covers his legal expenses.) Compelling Explanations Logical: (1) John Rogers of Geneva, Fla., recently acquitted in a shooting death (using Florida’s “stand your ground” defense), convinced a judge in February to return his guns, which police had confiscated when they arrested him. Rogers said he needs the guns for protection because he is particularly vulnerable —— in that he is blind. (2) Rogerio Scotton, challenging federal charges in January that he lied to immigration officials about his “marriage” to a Cuban woman (a “sham,” said prosecutors), offered to prove the matrimony’s bona fides by showing the couple’s conjugal—bed videos in open court. (The judge instructed Scotton to find a “less intrusive” way to make the same point.) The Continuing Crisis The firm 3D Babies has begun selling (for $800) 8—inch—long fetal sculptures developed from 3—D ultrasound images, computer graphics and 3—D printing technology (“printing” successive layers of material continuously, eventually creating a physical object). (Four— inch and 2—inch models are available for $400 and $200, respectively.) For celebrity hounds who are not planning imminent parenthood, the company sells one fetal sculpture off the shelf: the Kim Kardashian—Kanye West fetus (“Baby North West”) for only $250.
REGION —SDCWA (San Diego County Water Authority) won the first court battle in its lawsuit against its main water supplier MWD (Metropolitan Water District) over water rates. On Feb. 25, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Curtis E. A. Karnow tentatively ruled that the rates the Los Angles-based MWD charged over the past four years violated California’s Constitution and laws. tentative “Today’s ruling validates the difficult and extraordinary
measures the Water Authority was forced to take to protect the ratepayers and the economy of San Diego County,” said Thomas Wornham, Chair of SDCWA’s Board of Directors in a statement. The ruling was based on lawsuits SDCWA filed in 2010 and 2012 challenging the rates charged by MWD. The lawsuits came about as SDCWA has worked to reduce its dependence on MWD’s water, primarily by purchasing water from the Colorado River with a 45-year contract signed in 2003.
MWD still provides almost half of SDCWA’s water and the district’s infrastructure is necessary to transport water from the Colorado River to SDCWA customers. SDCWA has claimed that MWD inflated the rates charged to cover the cost of using the district’s pipelines to transport water from another supplier in order to subsidize the water costs for the 25 other agencies that purchase water from MWD. SDCWA has asserted that MWD has the potential to overcharge the county by $1.3 billion to
$2.1 billion over the course of SDCWA’s 45-year contract with IID (the Imperial Irrigation District) for Colorado River water. MWD has alleged that SDCWA is trying to avoid covering the fair share of the costs to maintain water supply and pipelines. A statement released by Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager of MWD, indicated that the district intends to appeal the ruling. “Metropolitan is confident that its structure of charging all agencies the same rates for the same services is both logical and le-
gal. This is one initial step in a very long process,” he said. “We look forward to the coming steps in the judicial process.” The ruling comes in the wake of Proposition 26, which places the burden on public agencies to prove they are charging the actual cost of the services they deliver and was approved by voters in 2010. Additional hearings that will determine if MWD breached its 2003 contract with SDCWA to set lawful rates and if MWD undervalued SDCWA’s right to their water supply have yet to be scheduled.
Board of Supervisors make motions on e-cigarettes By Tony Cagala
REGION — In the professional medical opinions of two county personnel reporting to the Board of Supervisors Tuesday, they agreed that the county should cite the same authority for electronic smoking devices as they have currently in place for conventional cigarettes. That is according to Dr. Wilma Wooten of the county’s HHSA (Health and Human Services Agency). Wooten, with Dr. Dean Sidelinger, further proposed a new, comprehensive definition for the inclusion into the county’s A-99 policy, the existing tobacco use prevention and cessation policy. The presentation was made following a request last November from county Supervisors Ron Roberts and Dave Roberts to incorporate all electronic vapor devices into the language of the A-99 policy. Looking at the potential health safety effects, increasing access by minors and claims as a smoking cessation aid and reviewing A-99, Wooten and Sidelinger recommended that updated electronic smoking device language be included into the policy. While electronic cigarettes are already included in the county’s policy, other electronic smoking devices such as those that produce vapor would be included. The county ordinance prohibits traditional smoking in county parks and trails, while smoking in facilities, including public buildings is governed by state labor codes. The proposed definition would be read as “Any electronic and/ or battery operated device the use of which may resemble smoking, which can be used to deliver inhaled dose(s) of nicotine or other substances.” The definition doesn’t include the use of nicotine cessation devices as nicotine inhalers, nicotine gum or nicotine patches, Sidelinger added. Reporting some health
risks associated with the unknowns of electronic smoking devices, Sidelinger said that the FDA has found inaccuracies in the labeling of some of the products claiming to
in public areas, while seven others are developing restrictions. In May, staff will return to the board for a vote to adopt the language into the policy.
Any electronic and/or battery operated device the use of which may resemble smoking, which can be used to deliver inhaled dose(s) of nicotine or other substances.” County definition for inclusion in the tobacco use prevention and cessation policy
motion also passed by a 3-1 vote. Sidelinger said the use of the electronic smoking devices has tripled over the years, amounting to $1.7 billion last year. Sidelinger cited a CDC report stating that use of the devices among youth has doubled. From 201112 among all students in grades six through 12, the numbers doubled from 3.3 percent to 6.8 percent. Bill Horn expressed a contrasting viewpoint during the discussion, calling it a “knee-jerk” reaction to something that is taking place. Horn said the devices serve as a tool to help people get off of smoking. “They are not combustible, they don’t emit an offensive odor if you’ve ever been around them, and many contain less nicotine
Roberts made a secbe nicotine free, when in actuality, they did contain ond motion to restrict the use of e-cigarettes in the nicotine. He noted that many county at a later date.

He quoted from a report released earlier this month from the American Lung Association’s Healthy Stores for a Healthy Community, showing that 80 percent of stores in the county carry tobacco products with candy, mint and liquor flavors. Some of the electronic smoking devices, he said, have taken on the appearance of asthma inhalers or magic markers, things readily found in kids’ backpacks. These products, Roberts said, are really becoming “stealth products.” Three cities in North County have placed restrictions on the use of electronic smoking devices
than cigarettes,” he added. He didn’t believe that the proposed ordinance would have an impact on the stemming of minors obtaining the devices, adding that an ordinance from Sacramento would be needed to do that. “I don’t really like micro-managing anything, and I don’t think we ought to be telling adults that they can’t use these things if they’re trying to get off of nicotine,” said Horn.

Schedule set for City Hall planning By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — A draft schedule outlining the next steps that will be taken to replace City Hall was accepted unanimously by council members at the March 3 meeting. Plans will move forward with the location of the existing facility at 1050 Camino del Mar as the preferred site for the new building. The efforts will include determining the exact amount of space that will be needed and cost estimates for a facility that features administrative offices, a town hall meeting area, parking, community rooms, a plaza and open space. There will also be an update to 2007 plans for a mixed-use facility with a public-private partnership and a financial estimate to find the highest and best use for the Camino del Mar site. The Finance Committee is currently reviewing what the city can afford, assessing the revenue potential of nonessential assets and researching new revenue-generating ideas. Presentations and discussions will take place at every council meeting through June 16, when some final decisions could be made. Community Development and Planning Director Kathy Garcia said her office is evaluating 23 bids received from consultants to prepare an analysis and cost estimates. She said she plans to make a recommendation at the March 17 meeting on which company should be awarded the contract. On April 7, the Finance

Committee will report findings to City Council. At the April 21 meeting council members are expected to discuss programming. The May 5 meeting will include a discussion on how best to finance the project, a valuation assessment for the 1050 Camino del Mar property and an explanation of public-private partnership opportunities. Estimates of probable construction costs will be presented May 19. A public workshop is scheduled for June 9. Council members will discuss questions for that event on June 2. The June 16 meeting will include a summary of the workshop as well as a possible decision on what direction the city should take. Garcia said that could include how big the facility
should be, how much can and should be spent and how to move forward. That will all depend on community input and recommendations from consultants, Garcia said. She said council members should have enough information to start making decisions. They could narrow it down to a set of priorities or be ready to move forward with the design process. “I cannot predict
where that will go at this point in time,” she said. “When we get to June, our goal as staff is to take as many unknowns off the table and clarify them with better figures,” City Manager Scott Huth said. Although council members unanimously support the schedule, Terry Sinnott had some concerns. “I think this is a great schedule, one that is very TURN TO CITY HALL ON B15

Wounded warriors compete in Marine paralympic invitational By Promise Yee
CAMP PENDLETON — Challenged athletes sped across the basketball court in wheelchairs, and scrambled to return the ball in seated volleyball during the Wounded Warrior Paralympics Invitational. Games began on March 7 and ran through March 12. Competitions included archery, swimming, track, cycling, volleyball and shooting. The games focus on ability and what athletes can accomplish. “The purpose is to try to get every individual at all skill levels a chance to compete,” Capt. Ryan Powell, of the Wounded Warrior Regiment, said. Sgt. Christopher Hancock explains the challenges of competition. “Well I have to deal with not having any feet, so getting around the terrain here and trying to keep up with everybody else that’s normal, that’s my biggest task. “I’m able to do it. “And seeing everyone else out here that’s an amputee pushes me a little bit harder,” he said. Marines each compete in two to three adapted sports. Top players from the invitational go on to be part of the Marine Corps national team and compete against other military branches in the Warrior Games in Colorado. From there elite athletes progress to the U.S. team in the international Paralympic Games. Corp. Ben McCrosky has competed for the Marine Corps team for two years, and has his sights set on joining the U.S.
team next year. He now teaches newcomers to paralympic competition how to play seated volleyball through practice drills and scrimmages. “Moving, you’re using a lot of your hands,” McCrosky said. “Movement is the biggest thing.” While the competition is spirited, the goal of the invitational is to support military men and women, who are ill and injured, in their recovery. Adapted sports provide Marines mental and spiritual engagement, a new goal to break the monotony of rehabilitation routines, and a common ground to share with fellow Marines. Coaches often work one on one with players to address their specific challenges. Sports equipment is adapted to allow athletes to succeed. For those who are competing in archery and missing an arm a strap holds the bow across their shoulder. Wheelchairs used in basketball have four additional small wheels with 360 degree turning radius for maneuverability. Commander Lauren Nilsen, U.S. Navy nurse and Wounded Warrior seated volleyball coach, said the paralympics are near and dear to her. She was on the receiving end as U.S. casualties returned to the states for medical care. “The flights would come in from Iraq and Afghanistan within one to three days after they were wounded,” Nilsen said. “For me as a nurse who was on the

receiving end of these gentlemen and women with these injuries, and then to be here in the recovery process as a coach, I’m very grateful to see how well they’re doing.” Nilsen said for injured troops mastering new goals, and time with fellow Marines is healing. “We’re promoting athleticism, recovery, camaraderie, good fun and that bonding that’s unique to the armed forces, in particular for the United States Marine Corps.” For both McCrosky and Hancock the reward of the games is time spent with fellow warriors. “Developing long lasting friendships is really the biggest thing in my opinion,” Hancock said.
Teams face off on the basketball court. Top athletes join the Marine Corps national team and compete against other military branches in the Warrior Games.
Leaps in literacy with Corcoran Foundation
Vista Village Business Association contracted artists Rick and Jaydon Randall to create some one-of-a-kind bicycle racks. Courtesy photo
Artful bike racks go up in Vista VISTA — Traveling through Vista by bicycle just got easier, but if you’re looking for a traditional bike rack in Vista’s downtown Vista village, you won’t find one. As part of its beautification efforts for the downtown area, the Vista Village Business Association (VVBA) contracted local artists Rick and Jaydon Randall from Randall Art Ranch to manufacture four uniquely designed aluminum bike racks. The bike racks are placed on selected areas of the public sidewalk within the Central Vista Business Improvement District and will be maintained by the VVBA. Strategically placed, the new rack shapes include: — a Beer Mug bike rack, in front of Mother Earth Brewery on Main Street. — a Highway 395 bike rack, in front of the Lush Coffee building at Main Street and North
Michigan Avenue. — a Star bike rack aptly positioned in front of the Avo Theater on Main Street. — a Butterfly bike rack in front of Yoga Vista and the Yellow Deli on East Broadway. The VVBA purchased three of the bike racks through a grant from San Diego County’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program. The Randalls donated the Beer Mug bike rack to the city. The Randalls are also the local artists of the temporary Kites Over Vista program which includes the kinetic (moving) sculpture “Flying Robert” kite and other kite exhibits on Main Street. In May, “Flying Robert” will be replaced with “Dragon Tale,” the sixth exhibit in the Vista area. “Dragon Tale” will be painted with color-shifting paint and will change colors with movement.
OCEANSIDE — The John Corcoran Foundation, which provides free tutoring and technology scholarships to youth and adults struggling with basic literacy skills, celebrated Read Across America Week with Ivey Ranch Elementary and Bella Mente Montessori Academy Charter School providing literacy program success and inspiration for elementary students. The foundation has just completed its first in-school, 16-week, evidence-based literacy instruction program with 60 students from Ivey Ranch Elementary with successful results. This service typically has been provided solely through the foundation’s Second Nature Learning Center and online programs. By providing one-onone instruction sessions in the classroom from tutors of the foundation, students of Ivey Ranch improved reading skills on average two grade levels. “The John Corcoran Foundation has become an excellent resource for Ivey
Ranch Elementary as we strive to develop the essential literacy skills in all our students,” said Duane Legg, Principal of Ivey Ranch Elementary, “The foundation’s one-on-one instruction with our students has given them a foundation to succeed across the board.” John Corcoran, founder of the John Corcoran Foundation, and the author of “The Teacher Who Could Not Read” shared his nearly 50-year struggle with illiteracy and read stories with hundreds of students of Bella Mente Montessori Academy Charter School March 6 as part of the school’s week long actives for Read Across America Week. In addition to participation with Read Across America Week, the foundation is holding their 90in90 Computer Drive. The foundation began the drive in March in order to collect 90 computers in 90 days so they can provide technology for their new class of literacy instruction which has been inundated with more applications then they currently can
provide technology for. The foundation will be collecting new and used computers at the Second Nature Learning Center in Oceanside or can schedule a time for pick up through May 4. For more information, visit johncorcoranfoundation.org.

Grant works on costs of climate change REGION — The San Diego Center for Civic Engagement at The San Diego Foundation granted $75,000 to International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLE) -Local Governments for Sustainability to update the region’s Hazard Mitigation Plan through collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services (OES) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). While climate change continues to polarize political debates across the U.S., the disaster planning and response community is increasingly working together to manage costly weather events. National extreme weather impacts such as sea levels rise, prolonged droughts, polar vortexes and hurricanes are becoming more extreme. Last year, Hurricane Sandy and a devastating drought that affected over 70 percent of the country, cost every person in America more than $300 — or more than $100 billion, according to a report by CERES – Inaction on Climate Change: The Cost to Taxpayers. San Diego County Supervisor Ron Roberts, also is a member of the California Air Resources Board, said public safety must be a top priority in addressing climate change impacts. “This collaboration of ICLEI with climate scientists, funded by The San Diego Foundation, will ensure we protect our residents while mitigating future costs to our region,” Roberts said. Shaun Donovan, secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reported, “For every $1 we spent today on hazard mitigation saves us at least $4 in avoided costs if a disaster strikes again, saving billions in taxpayer dollars.” Therefore by updating the San Diego County Mitigation Plan and investing today in implementation, we could potentially cut future severe weather response costs by 75 percent. As of January 2014, ICLEI will work with OES, the Unified Disaster Council, several fire and water districts, as well as the region’s 18 local governments and the county to assess how best to incorporate scientific-based climate change projections
into existing hazard plans (e.g. increasingly intense and frequent wildfires, droughts, coastal flooding and extreme heat events). The funding will provide the resources to survey the Unified Disaster Council and emergency managers to determine planning needs, work with scientists at SIO to determine the county’s local climate science needs, and develop guidance for city hazard mitigation strategies through expert workshops. The regional plan must be approved by FEMA every five years and is scheduled for review in 2015. “With this grant from The Foundation, we are excited to work with the county’s Office of Emergency Services and scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography to incorporate projections of regional climate change into the county’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan,” said Brian Holland, ICLEI national climate programs director. “Thanks to the county’s leadership, this plan will be one of the few plans in the country that are forward looking.” The San Diego Center for Civic Engagement’s Climate Initiative supports efforts to raise community awareness about the projected impacts of climate change in the San Diego region and catalyze comprehensive local action to address them. This grant was made possible through a two-year grant from the Kresge Foundation to The Center, to underwrite some initial work to help our region prepare for change. In addition to partnerships with government and nonprofits, businesses such as Qualcomm, Bank of America and Kaiser Permanente have provided funding to augment The Foundation’s collaborative efforts. The region’s innovation has also attracted investments from national funders such as the Kresge Foundation and the National Science Foundation, in anticipation that what happens in San Diego will serve as examples for other areas of the country. The San Diego Foundation’s Climate Initiative supports efforts to deepen community awareness about the local impacts of climate change and spur regional action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Students build ‘bot’ that plays ball ENCINITAS — On March 7 and March 8, more than 60 high school For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Robotics Competition teams from across San Diego and around the world competed at the San Diego Regional FIRST Robotics Competition at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. FIRST Team Paradox 2102 is in its eighth year of competition and showcased what its robot can do in this year’s game, Aerial Assist. High schoolers drove teams of three 120-pound robots up and down a 25-foot-by-54-foot field, each team passing, throwing and launching a 2-foot-diameter ball between robots, over obstacles and into goals to score and win this year’s game. Off the field, teams and individual students were judged and win awards for safety, spirit and personal commitment to the core values of FIRST. “These kids amaze me every day with what
they want to do and what they can do. I see real dedication from each of them whether building the robot, creating merchandise, fundraising or writing presentations,” said Darrahl Walton, engineering mentor for Team Paradox. “It’s been a real pleasure helping them learn, watching them build robots and relationships and seeing them off to success at their first competition of the season!” For more information on FIRST Team Paradox 2102 and regular updates leading up to the San Diego Regional, visit sdarobotics.org and follow on Facebook by searching for FIRST Robotics Team Paradox 2102.

Wounded Warrior Regiment meets with caregivers during Marine Corps Trials By Cpl. Trevon S. Peracca
CAMP PENDLETON — Over the past 10 years the Marine Corps has seen a rise in its wounded, ill and injured Marines. The Marine Corps Trials give these Marines an opportunity to gather in the spirit of competition to participate in a sport that they love. These athletes have come from all over the world to compete in the trials at Camp Pendleton. Some athletes have brought their loved ones with them for moral and physical support. Most will pay gratitude for the sacrifice made by these wounded, ill and injured Marines and sailors, but few recognize the significant contributions made by their loved ones. These caregivers are spouses, parents or loved ones that are by their side day-in and day-out, to assist with medical needs, provide moral support and aid in the activities of their Marine’s everyday life. These actions are often overlooked. Many do not real-
ize that the injuries and illnesses of Marines also impact their families. “I think the biggest impact for me, was me having to get out of the Air Force,” said Morgan E. S. Doty, the wife of a wounded Marine.

Food &Wine In the alphabet soup of wines J gets an ‘A’ taste of wine frank mangio In the alphabet soup of wines J gets an A In the wine tasting world, if you have a wine that starts with the letter A, you have a distinct advantage. Tasters have a “clean” palate and are starting fresh. J Vineyards starts and ends with one letter — “J” — and chances are, this Sonoma Russian River wine will taste clean, crisp and luscious on the palate, no matter where it is on the taster’s list. The story of J Vineyards began in 1986 when Judy Jordan, at 25 years old, persevered in starting a winery specializing in sparkling wine. After an exhaustive search for the right “terroir” for cool climate grape growing, she discovered the Russian River Valley, with soils perfect for Champagne method wines. After some years of proving herself in the wine world, Jordan branched out into three varietal wines: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, made from 10 vineyards now under the J banner with 254 acres planted, all in the Russian River Valley. The mineral-based Alluvial soils found in this valley have been forming for millions of years so you LUNCH Mon-Fri 11:30am-2:00pm DINNER Mon-Thurs: 5pm-9pm Fri: 5pm-9pm / Sat: 4pm-9pm Sun: 4pm-9pm

can say that these wines are still in their baby years in geological terms. Recently J Vineyards was featured at Twenty/20 in Carlsbad. Devin Savano, Western Sales Manager, opened with the two signature Sparkling Wines, J Cuvee 20 Brut ($24) and J Brut Rose ($30). Getting to the main courses, the 2012 J Chardonnay ($28) and 2012 J Pinot Noir ($35) enhanced the gourmet cuisine of panned seared scallop and spiced glazed duck. Savano was most excited about the first ever J Vineyards Blend. “We have a new 2012 release “Misterra” ($50) that we produced that is really unusual, with 90 percent Pinot Noir, 6 percent Pinotage (from South Africa) and 4 percent Pinot Meunier (normally a sparkling wine component.) The additions to the Pinot Noir add depth and color.” To learn more, go to jwine.com.
Monte Xanic Leads the Charge of Mexican Wines
One hundred kilometers from the San Diego County border and 30 kilometers inland from
the Mexican port city of Ensenada, lies the Valle de Guadalupe, providing 90 percent of the top wines in Mexico, producing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot Malbec, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Chardonnay. The premier winemaker in this valley is Monte Xanic (chaneek). The first question I asked co-owner Hans Backhoff when I met him at his display in a COSTCO store in San Diego was, what does Xanic mean? “It means flower which blooms after the first rain,” he declared. “You know our country for our premium beer and tequila, so why not premium Hans Backhoff, co-owner of Monwine?

A staycation in downtown San Diego at the Marriot Marquis and Marina
High tea benefits CRC
Staying at the Marriot Marquis and Marina offers some spectacular views. Photo by David Boylan
he whole concept of a staycation continues to resonate with me, especially as downtown San Diego continues to add dining and entertainment options. When I was approached by the folks at the Marina Kitchen at the San Diego Marriot Marquis and Marina to feature Chef Aron Schwartz on my show, I thought it would be a great idea to combine a stay-over at the very nice hotel where the restaurant is located. The beauty of a downtown San Diego staycation is you can hop on the Coaster or Amtrak and not have to deal with traffic or parking. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an easy walk or a very quick cab ride from the Santa Fe Station to the Marriot that is right next to the convention center and beautifully situated on the San Diego Bay and very close by Seaport Village. There are a couple Marriot properties downtown; this is the one with the gleaming glass towers. If you can arrange for a room on the bay side with a balcony thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ticket, we were on the 23rd floor and the view spanned from the Catalina Bridge to the harbor and north to Point Loma, it was quite spectacular. My advice is to take a mid-morning train down, arrange for an early checkin, and spend the afternoon at the resort like pool area. On a nice day itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually
restaurant in Lakeville, Connecticut. Shortly thereafter, seeking new opportunities and a wish to expand his experience in the industry, he set his sights on Las Vegas where he worked as sous chef for the French restaurant LutĂ¨ce at The Venetian. If you are not familiar with LutĂ¨ce, it is one of the most famous French restaurants in New York and a great training ground for any chef.Â Following his time in Las Vegas, Schwartz returned to San Diego to work for Bernardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;O Restaurant, then his current gig at Marina Kitchen where he has been for five years.Â I should note that the whole staff at Marina Kitchen is top notch but another person of note is Director of Beverage Joshua Orr.Â Orr is a rising star in the wine world and has a knack for pairing the perfect wine with each course. So, combine a very talented chef with an expert wine guy and a staff that is well versed on the menu and the result is worth checking out, even if you are not staying at the hotel. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen plenty of hotel restaurants that have a captive audience and can sometimes get a little lax in their efforts, which are not the case at Marina Kitchen. They are sourcing lo-
cally and when they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that, they buy the best possible ingredients. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take you through the menu but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a column in itself. Trust me on this one. Post dinner was followed by a nice walk along the harbor and a nightcap back at the Tequila Bar. Marina Kitchen has a Sunday breakfast that is a great way to close out the staycation then back to the train for a mellow Sunday ride back up to the North County station you originated from.

There is a Tequila Bar & Grill in the pool area and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a day at a resort pool without a couple of cocktails? I like to plan it with enough time for a late-afternoon nap back up in the beautiful room with a view as the sun is sinking in the West. I made our dinner res

The Gaslamp Quarter really comes to life on a Saturday night and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to take it in, but I will admit, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my cup of tea as a nightlife destination. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been looking forward to this dinner for a while as Schwartz has quite an impressive resume and the menu looked fabulous.

Brought to you by the staff & physicians of Scripps Hospital For many women, menopause is a welcome end to monthly menstrual cycles and the cramps, headaches and moodiness that can accompany them. However, menopause can bring its own challenging symptoms, as the drop in hormone levels often triggers symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats,
fatigue, trouble sleeping, hair loss and low libido. The key is not to accept “suffering” as the only safe option, but to know that help is available. Encinitas resident Angelica Zaid, M.D., who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, answers common questions. What is hormone replacement therapy (HRT)? HRT, which increases the level of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, is one of the most effective treatments for menopause symptoms. HRT addresses the cause of the symptoms using laboratory created forms of estrogen — and while very effective in reducing symptoms, some forms can have serious side effects. In the mid-1990s, the Women’s Health Initiative (WIH) began a clinical trial to study the effects of synthetic estrogen and progestin on menopause symptoms. The trial was stopped ahead of schedule because some participants using these hormones showed an increased risk of breast cancer, heart disease, blood clots and stroke. It was enough to cause many women to suddenly stop using their hormones and for many, their symp-

toms returned. How did bioidentical hormones come on the scene? As a result of the WIH study, many began to question whether replacing hormones in general was dangerous. The concern over the risks, along with the demand for more “natural” treatments for menopause symptoms, led to the awareness and promotion of bioidentical hormones. As the name implies, bioidentical hormones have a biochemical structure that is identical to hormones produced by the body. Unlike the hormone replacement medications used in the WIH study, bioidentical hormones have no added chemical groups that would be recognized as foreign to the body. Do bioidentical hormones require a doctor’s prescription? In most cases, yes. Some bioidentical hormones are made by pharmaceutical companies and are standardized and approved by the FDA. Others are made at special pharmacies called compounding pharmacies, which custom-formulate medications according to the doctor’s specifications for each individual patient. For that reason, bioidenti-
cal hormone medications produced in a compounding pharmacy are not standardized, nor do they go through the FDA approval process. Proponents of bioidentical hormones believe that they can be safer than conventional hormones for several reasons. Because they look exactly like human hormones and are metabolized in the same way, bioidentical hormones do not produce foreign substances in the body that could lead to cancer or other illnesses. Bioidentical hormones can also have fewer emotional side effects. Synthetic progesterone, for example, may cause mood swings, but natural progesterone tends to create a calming effect and can help with anxiety and sleep. To learn more about hormone replacement therapy options, attend a free seminar led by Dr. Zaid and her partners on Thursday, March 27 at 6 p.m. at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas Conference Center, 354 Santa Fe Drive, in Encinitas. “Health Watch” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps Health.

Encinitas woman makes a difference in the North County OCEANSIDE — North County Lifeline offered its gratitude and thanks to Encinitas resident Jen Finkelstein, a supervisor in North County Lifeline’s Youth Development department whom they believe knows a thing or two about working with teens. “They are honest and willing to work on themselves,” Finkelstein said. “If you respect and listen to them, they will listen to you.” She changes lives every day, according to a North County Lifeline release. She is a woman with a mission — so much so that Finkelstein was awarded the 2014 Ruby Award for Women Helping Women, by Soroptimist International of La Mesa. In her three and a half years at Lifeline, she has educated hundreds of teens about sexual health and decision-making. “She quickly developed such a mastery of the
curriculum that she began to train other educators,” the release read. In addition to many other responsibilities, Finkelstein has lead Lifeline’s Girls Power Hour, a gender-specific girls group. This group provides a safe setting where Finkelstein can educate young women about healthy decision making, misperceptions and gender stereotypes, self-empowerment, and developing self esteem. The organization asks that you congratulate her by posting a comment on North County Lifeline’s Facebook. “Finkelstein’s passion for helping women is evident in both her work at North County Lifeline and in the community.” “There is no doubt Finkelstein goes above and beyond the call of duty, but the best moments are often the simplest,” the release said. “Her most cherished memory at Lifeline was volunteering during the 2012 ‘It’s Now! It’s Wow!’ fundraising event. “The youth were dressed up in their finest clothes, ready to auction their artwork to raise funds for Club Crown Heights. Recalling the event, Finkelstein said, “It was nice to see them knowing they were making a difference.”

L-3 PHOTONICS operates a facility located at 5957 Landau Court, Carlsbad, CA 92008 that uses and emits chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. We do not believe that any person is exposed to these chemicals at levels constituting a health or safety risk. However, we have not made a formal determination that actual exposure levels are below the Proposition 65 “no significant risk” levels for carcinogens or “no observable effect” level for chemicals known to cause reproductive harm, and we have not performed a risk analysis to determine the precise amount of exposure that any individual would receive over a 70-year period. Proposition 65 therefore obligates us to provide this warning to potentially effected individuals. Further information may be obtained by contacting L-3 PHOTONICS at 760-431-6800. 02/28, 03/07, 03/14/14 CM 15937 SUMMONS (Family Law) CITACION (Derecho familiar) CASE NUMBER (NUMERO DE CASO) DN 174832 NOTICE TO RESPONDENT (Name): AVISO AL DEMANDADO: (Nombre): Angelina Marcaida You are being sued.

Well owners urged to care for groundwater REGION — The public is urged to care for water wells, and the water supply along with Groundwater Awareness Week through March 15. The California Groundwater Association joins the NGWA (National Ground Water Association) in urging residents to take care of their water wells and, what it cites as the most important natural resource, groundwater.
Thirteen million American households, including many in rural areas, use privately owned and maintained water well systems for their water supply. Freshwater is essential to human life and the environment. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that 99 percent of all available freshwater in the world is groundwater.
Groundwater Awareness Week is a time to remind the public how important groundwater is and why it is important for people to take care of their water well systems, said Cliff Treyens, NGWA public awareness director. Visit the National Groundwater Awareness Week Web page, NGWA.org or WellOwner.org, for many useful informational tools for private well owners.
prise, because it is really hard to spot them on my new, ant-colored granite. The next week, I discovered they had opened up a day-spa all the way around the edge of my hot tub. I swear I saw one getting a manicure. I took after them with my best baking soda and broke up the party, but the clean up was copious. And I know they haven’t gone far. They are simply biding their time, in
sneaky ant fashion, until I look the other way. I’m wondering if I can’t rally the army of spiders in my yard for a full web counter-offense. Do I need a license for a pet anteater?
that we face as an industry.” On the sports side, Upper Deck has been seeing a lot of success over the last few years with their exclusive Collegiate Licensing Company deal, signed in 2009, Masherah said. Before that, the collegiate arena was an overlooked area, he added. “What you find is that, collectors, fans, are more passionate about their collegiate affiliations than they are with their pro affiliations in a lot of cases,” Masherah said. “It’s been a huge, bright spot for us,” he added. Upper Deck announced a new deal on Feb. 27 to be the exclusive manufacturer of NHL trading cards for the 2014-15 season. With the exclusive deal in place, they’re able to try out new things and be better able to engage
with collectors. Something that isn’t really available in a co-exclusive environment. The most sought after Upper Deck card? “It’s hard; I think you have the question of most valuable, sought out… I think for us, people still hearken back and they identify with the (Ken) Griffey Jr. rookie. I think more recently, a lot of people think about the LeBron James exquisite rookie as kind of an iconic card of the last 10 or 15 years.” But the most recent, he said, would be the precious metal gem card featuring Michael Jordan. “That card was numbered to 10, and sold on eBay for $30,000,” Masherah said. And no, there isn’t a safe on the Upper Deck premises that houses any of the rarest of cards. Everything that’s produced all gets circulated, Masherah added.

because of extreme heat. Sometimes it’s because it has rained. Sometimes I think they just do it to annoy me and remind me who’s really in charge. Two weeks ago, I came downstairs to a moving feast for 1,000 ants across my kitchen counter. This was even more of a sur-

It’s a market still mostly male-driven, and as the company turned 25, Masherah explained that it’s Gen-X that readily identifies with Upper Deck. “What you have seen, especially over the last few years as far as Upper Deck’s concerned, is you’re seeing a lot of people who grew up with it now sharing that hobby with their kids,” he said. The core collector is still there, has always been there. “The hardest part,” Masherah said, “probably is bringing those people back who grew up collecting, and went off to college, found girls, found a lot of hobbies, and now that they’re adults, they’re working jobs, they have kids, bringing them back in the hobby. That’s probably the biggest challenge

But what I think is missing on the schedule is a point at which we take that information, apply it to other sites and eliminate other sites in the public arena.” Stressing “it’s important to bring our community along,” Sinnott said he would “add some lines” to the schedule that indicate the city will take “the information we learn from our consultants and apply

But the costs will be applicable if a City Hall is built on a similar lot elsewhere. “It’s going to be a puzzle,” he said. “It’s going to be many building blocks. Some will be driven by what we can afford. I’m trying to bring to you as many building blocks that will be defined enough that you can feel comfortable about making some of those choices.” Councilman Don Mosier said he liked that the schedule was winding up before summer. He also said staff should look at what other cities have
done. “There are some lessons to be learned and some fairly large-sized mistakes to avoid,” he said. “On the other hand, we have a history here in Del Mar of dancing up to the new city Hall plate, and then swinging and missing repeatedly, and those are lessons to be learned. “I think there is a sort of narrow pathway to success in this project … we’re going to have to navigate,” Mosier added. “Hopefully this is the right way to do it. … We want to watch the timing so that there’s plenty of opportunity for the public to pay attention and follow the process. “So I really think it’s good to get this done in June and then not take any major steps until September when people are back paying attention,” he added.

adoptable and appreciate attention and care.” Once pets are healthy they are put up for adoption and integrated with the rest of adoptable animals at the humane society. There is no charge for the safehouse service, and no limit on the number of pets that are taken in. Van Zante said another responsibility of the safehouse is guarding the pet from the abuser, who sometimes comes looking for the animal. The pet will not be returned to the unhealthy household. If necessary it will be moved from the humane society shelter to a secure location. Van Zante added abusers could be spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, parents, grandparents, from all ethnicities and economic stratifications. “We all know somebody,” Van Zante said.

PRIOR TO 6:00 PM ON MONDAY, MARCH 24, 2014, ANY INTERESTED PERSON MAY REVIEW THE APPLICATION AND PRESENT TESTIMONY, ORALLY OR IN WRITING, TO THE PLANNING & BUILDING DEPARTMENT. WRITTEN TESTIMONY IS PREFERRED IN ORDER TO HAVE A RECORD OF THE COMMENTS RECEIVED.

The animal safehouse program began in 1997. Now the humane society works with numerous agencies countywide that help victims of domestic violence, including the Community Resource Center in Encinitas. The resource center has a safehouse for women and children, but like most shelters cannot accommo-
date pets. “It’s a courageous act to get out of that,” Paul Thompson, Community Resource Center CEO, said. “We want to surround them with a constellation of resources.” Women who seek support with the resource center have a 95 percent success rate to achieve a safe, stable, self-sufficient life.
After the close of the review period, if additional information is not required, the Planning and Building Department will render a determination on the application, pursuant to Section 2.28.090 of the City of Encinitas Municipal Code. An appeal of the Department’s determination accompanied by the appropriate filing fee may be filed within 15-calendar days from the date of the determination. Appeals will be considered by the City Council pursuant to Chapter 1.12 of the Municipal Code. Any filing of an appeal will suspend this action as well as any processing of permits in reliance thereon in accordance with Encinitas Municipal Code Section 1.12.020(D)(1) until such time as an action is taken on the appeal. The above item is located within the Coastal Zone and requires the issuance of a regular Coastal Development Permit. The action of the Planning and Building Director may not be appealed to the California Coastal Commission. Under California Government Code Sec. 65009, if you challenge the nature of the proposed action in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised regarding the matter described in this notice or written correspondence delivered to the City at or prior to the date and time of the determination. For further information, contact Andrew Maynard at (760) 633-2718, or by e-mail at email@example.com; or the Planning & Building Department at (760) 633-2710, or by e-mail at planning@ encinitasca.gov, 505 S.

Pet of the Week Lola is the pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 2-month-old, 2-pound, domestic shorthaired kitten. Remember that kittens are only kittens for a short time. Lola and her siblings were surrendered to RCHS when their family realized that they could not afford to keep their full litter of kittens. The $125 adoption fee includes a medical exam, up-to-date vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. To adopt or sponsor a pet until its new family takes it home, call (760)
