At 11th hour, city .com submits offer for Pacific View site By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — Just before the clock struck 11 p.m. on Wednesday, the City Council announced it would submit a confidential offer to buy the Pacific View property. It was the eleventh hour of not just the night, but also negotiations with EUSD (Encinitas Union School District), the property’s owner. Last week, the city sent a letter asking the district to meet one last time in hopes of averting the March 25 public auction for Pacific View. A response letter from EUSD stated the City Council must submit an offer of at least $9.5 million by March 21 in order for the district to consider a deal. The City Council,
which voted 3-2 in closed session to make an offer, did not disclose the price or terms. “We hear the community’s concerns and we agree it’s a legacy property — we don’t want to give up,” Mayor Teresa Barth said after the council meeting. On March 24, the EUSD board of trustees will decide whether to accept the city’s offer during a special meeting. Barth said the terms were confidential in light of the pending auction.

Tri-City moving forward after litigations By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — It took two years, but litigations against Tri-City Healthcare District for barring director Randy Horton from closed-session meetings has reached an amicable conclusion. Matt Soskins, Tri-City Healthcare District vice president of legal affairs, said district policies have not changed. Conflict of interest and misconduct can still bar board members from closed-session meetings. What has changed is an improved working relationship between the board and management. “Where we are now regarding transparency and quality — including board setting — wasn’t present to the extent it is now,” Soskins said. David Bennett, Tri-City Healthcare District chief marketing officer, said senior leadership is now totally transparent with the board, and that has set a positive tone.
“The culture and satisfaction with employees is soaring,” Bennett said. “We’re seeing changes for the better.” Carlsbad resident and attorney Leon Page can take part of the credit for that change. Page filed a lawsuit against the healthcare district in December 2011. Page said his motive for filing was to stop the district from keeping whistle blowers out of meetings. He said important decisions are made during closed session, and not allowing Horton to attend was also denying his constituents the opportunity to participate. “I am concerned with government, public interest, and seeing local agencies function properly,” Page said. “The minority can easily be silenced by a vote of the majority,” he added. “Dissidents are the canaries in the coal mine. They are the first to bring to light misconduct and corruption.
“If they are excluded from closed-session meetings, who’s gong to raise the flag if there’s a problem?” Page had some strong words to describe the past leadership under former CEO Larry Anderson. He said the board lost sight of checks and balances. “What the board was doing under Larry Anderson was enabling everything Tri-City wanted,” Page said. “The board forgot its role. “It sets a very dangerous precedent. Voters are essentially without a voice.” In September 2012, the San Diego Superior Court ruled in favor of allowing Horton to attend closed-session meetings. The healthcare district appealed the decision. In May 2013, Horton resigned, and the district dismissed its appeal. Soskins said Horton simply sent an email that said, “I resign.” In the meantime, vot-
ers elected several new directors who made changes in the district’s management. Page said he is pleased with the district taking a more responsible approach to management. “The board of directors is a very different board,” Page said. “Larry Anderson is terminated, there is a revision of board members, it’s a different place today.” Soskins and Bennett also said they are pleased with the changes. “The quality at TriCity is truly soaring,” Soskins said. He added financials and patient and employee satisfaction are up under the leadership of interim CEO Casey Fatch. Tri-City Healthcare District is in the final stages of selecting a new CEO. Fatch is on the short list of candidates being considered for the position. If not selected, he will resume his previous position as COO.

Council votes against new permit system for bars By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — The city should step up code enforcement checks on bars, rather than adopt a new permit system for alcohol-serving establishments, a council majority said on Wednesday night. The council voted unanimously in favor of hiring a new code enforcement officer to proactively patrol bars and enforce the rules on the books. But councilmembers voted 3-2 against what’s known as a deemed-approved ordinance. The measure would have required all bars open after 10 p.m. to meet tougher noise and trash standards.

Security plans to address Fairgrounds hoping to update payment structure smoking at race concerts By Bianca Kaplanek
Ongoing complaints of marijuana smoking triggers response By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — In response to ongoing complaints about smoking, especially marijuana, during concerts after the summer horse races, a report on security protocol was presented at the March 11 meeting of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which oversees the Del Mar Fairgrounds. General Manager Tim Fennell noted Pat Kerins, who has been the chief of security for the 22nd DAA for 15 years and director of security for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club for the past two, has 31 years of law enforcement experience, including 26 with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Wolfgang Davidson, deputy chief of security, is a retired master sergeant who spent 25 years with the Marine Corps and the past 15 years in his current position. “There is a lot of history, background and experience for safety, which will always be our No. 1 priority,” Fennell said. The DMTC Uniform Security Department includes three lieutenants, eight sergeants and 77 security guards. Staffing from the Sheriff’s Department includes one lieutenant, three sergeants and 39 deputies on opening day of the horse races. One lieutenant, two sergeants and 22 deputies are assigned to large con-
certs, such as Ziggy Marley, during which many say there is an increase in marijuana smoking. In addition, staffing during large concerts includes 78 Elite Security guards, 31 DMTC guards and four National Public Safety ATV patrols. Off-duty police officers, including some from out of state, who specialize in bike patrol are also on hand. “When they show up it looks like the front line of the (San Diego) Chargers,” Kerins said. In the report, Kerins admits “certain concerts are more apt to have marijuana smoking” than others. He added that he takes exception to “the impression that security does not care or is unaware of” the smoking policy at the fairgrounds, a statement made by many speakers during several monthly board meetings. Fennell said Kerins met with members of the San Diego Police Department, who said the 22nd DAA uses procedures similar to theirs for crowd management and control during large events and concerts. They won’t send an armed law enforcement officer into a large crowd for a smoker because it could create other issues, Fennell said, reiterating statements made previously by Encinitas sheriff’s Capt. Robert Haley. That’s not to say smokers shouldn’t be confronted, “but you have to use good common sense in how you go about doing it,” Fennell added. TURN TO SECURITY ON A27
DEL MAR — In an effort to better compensate management employees, officials at the Del Mar Fairgrounds are trying to modify a payment structure that hasn’t been updated in more than 20 years. About three years ago the state-owned venue, which is governed by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, was criticized for allowing managers, supervisors and other employees, between 2005 and 2010, to improperly cash out leave balances, such as unused vacation pay, totaling almost $525,000. The state doesn’t permit such action without approval, which the 22nd DAA did not have. Fairgrounds General Manager Tim Fennell said he and other employees used the money during a tough financial time to pay mortgages, college tuition or medical bills for themselves or family members. Had any of the employees quit, they would have
been entitled to receive whatever money they had accrued in a lump sum, Fennell said. Last year the board of directors began looking for alternative government structures that would give the 22nd DAA more authority to hire and compensate employees more equitably without state constraints, Director David Watson explained during the March 11 meeting. One potential solution is to expand class levels, which are based on the operating revenue of each fair. There are seven levels, with the highest applying to fairs with more than $10 million in revenue. Three fairs currently fall into that category. Del Mar’s is the largest, with about $67 million in revenue from the fair and $34 million from horse racing. The next largest is the Orange County Fairgrounds, with approximately $36 million in revenue. In a November 2013 let-
ter to the California Department of Human Resources, board President Fred Schenk notes that Cal Expo is considered a Class VII fair, but the general manager’s salary is not tied to the fair class structure. The Cal Expo general manager is paid about 15 percent more than the two other Class VII general managers, even though Cal Expo is a much smaller event than the ones they oversee. Fennell receives an annual salary of about $145,000. Schenk states in the letter that the board “strongly supports expanding the Fair Class Levels to reflect the current operating revenues of the Fairs,” which would also provide an incentive for fairs to increase. Schenk said the 22nd DAA would pay an outside consultant to study the proposal, an offer accepted by Rosemary Sidley, head of the personnel management division at CalHR. The 22nd DAA had been
working with the county to form a joint powers authority as a potential means for governing the fairgrounds, however, the governor’s office asked that the proposal be put on hold. In the meantime, Watson, as part of the 22nd DAA governance committee, and other fairgrounds officials met with the governor’s office to discuss other potential ways to retain and compensate management and other nonunion employees. Fennell said many in management positions at the fairgrounds are responsible for “tens of millions of dollars but they are not compensated” equitably. Fennell said other governance models are still being considered, but he would like to find a solution within the current system. He suggests a 10-level classification, with the 22nd DAA falling somewhere around an eight. CPS HR Consulting has been hired to review classification levels.
City considers adventure park, amending Prop H for ballot By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — With healthy reserves, Carlsbad is considering putting an outdoor adventure park, a new indoor recreation center, and other projects on the ballot this November. But before putting the next Alga-Norte-Park-type endeavor before voters, the city is taking a close look at amending or repealing Prop H. Prop H, passed in 1982, recognizes that large civic improvement projects create tax burdens for citizens. It requires that the city win voter approval before buying or developing property for more than $1 million. “What Prop H does is limit any acquisition of
property or the development of that property,” said Chuck McBride, Carlsbad’s Administrative Services Director. “That essentially ties City Council’s hands for capital improvement without voter approval.” He explained that almost any development will cost the city well over $1 million. For example, the city’s new aquatics center, sports fields, playground, and skate park complex, Alga Norte Park, was budgeted for $40 million. At the March 18 City Council meeting, McBride proposed increasing the limit of Prop H beyond $1 million so that the measure would not obstruct the city from completing minor
projects without a vote. He also suggested repealing the proposition all together. Carlsbad is mandated by city policy 74 to maintain a minimum of 30 percent reserves in the General Fund for emergencies, which today would require a minimum of $36 million. As of June 30 last year, Carlsbad had almost twice as much in reserves as required with about $70 million. Yet over 60 percent of voters rejected a proposition in 2002 that would have eliminated Prop H. With or without changes to Prop H, city staff suggested that City Council consider capital improve-
ment projects brought forward during the parks and recreation needs assessment and action plan completed in December. McBride put forth an adventure park that might include a mud run course, zip lines, and a mountain bike track, as well as a multigenerational recreation center designed for fitness, dances, and culinary programs. He also mentioned improvements to the coastal corridor, fire station 2, and the Dove Library. Because these projects would cost much more than $1 million, Prop H would require the city to put the plans up for a vote this NoTURN TO PROP HON A24

Few topics divide California as consistently or as evenly as the death penalty. The last time voters had their say on it, they opted by a vote of just over 51-49 percent to keep it around. How avidly do supporters of capital punishment maintain their opinions? Two years ago, when the Proposition 34 ballot initiative aimed to dump capital punishment in California and disband the state’s only Death Row, in San Quentin Prison, its supporters raised $7.3 million while those wanting to keep the death penalty had barely $300,000. The no’s prevailed despite that huge financial disadvantage. So Death Row persists, with 736 denizens at last count, all convicted of the most vicious crimes, some of them repeat killers. As of March 1, 233 had killed children and 42 were cop killers. It takes so long for any of them to exhaust their appeals that the most common causes of death on Death Row are linked to old age. “It’s just wrong for these people to live that long after they have deprived others of their lives and taken the victims away from their families,” says former Gov. Pete Wilson. While the death penalty is opposed by groups from the California Nurses Assn. to the League of Women Voters and by every Roman Catholic and Episcopal bishop in the state, it is still reality, and the reasons for making it less time consuming include everything from finances to better justice for convicts. No one is talking about a rush to the gas chamber here. Little has ever united
Wilson and his predecessor and fellow Republican George Deukemjian with Democratic ex-Gov. Gray Davis. But all back a proposed new ballot initiative to clean up the capital punishment process. How flawed is that process? It normally takes five years before a person under sentence of death has a lawyer assigned to his (almost all are men) case. It often can take four times that long before death penalty appeals are heard by the state Supreme Court, even longer before they reach the U.S. Supreme Court. One argument against the death penalty is that California has the nation’s highest rate of wrongful convictions, running as high as 7 percent in some categories. But that’s also an argument against the current inefficient administration of capital punishment cases. For the longer the appeals process drags on, the longer a victim of a mistaken or manipulated conviction is penalized. Appointing appeals lawyers right after death sentences are dispensed would likely cut that time. “The 30 years it can now take for the entire process to be resolved is also far too long for the families of victims,” said Davis. “They need resolution, too.” Phyllis Loya’s son Larry Lasater, an ex-Marine and a policeman in the East San Francisco Bay suburb of Pittsburg who was slain in 2005, is an example of the delayed process. “My son’s killer was sentenced in Aug. 2007, but didn’t get an appeals lawyer appointed until late in 2011, almost 4 ½ years,” the bereaved mother said. “Then the lawyer got nine extensions of the deadline for filing his opening brief over the next two years. That’s ludicrous, it’s nonsense.” Kermit Alexander,
a former UCLA football player who was a pro-bowl defensive back for the San Francisco 49ers, shares her frustration. His mother, sister and two nephews were murdered in 1984 — 30 years ago — when gang members seeking someone else mistakenly invaded their home. “These vultures are still alive,” Alexander said. “I have not slept well since my mother was murdered.” He also wants the process speeded. Then there’s the issue of how to house Death Row inmates, each of whom now gets an individual cell, usually outfitted with radio and TV. Backers of the death penalty efficiency initiative, led by San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael Ramos, want them housed two to a cell, a change the state’s non-partisan legislative analyst says could save $10 million yearly. “Why should the worst criminals live more comfortably than the general prison population?” Ramos asks. While death penalty opponents say this is all strictly about retribution and note that killing criminals can’t reverse their crimes, most Californians still want capital punishment. And if California is going to have it, what sense is there in dragging cases out decade after decade because of bureaucratic delays, thus frustrating everyone from victims’ families to the wrongly convicted?

District seeks parent input for spending By Rachel Stine

City looking for ways to secure Beacon’s bluff By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — Another bluff collapse at Beacon’s Beach could wipe out much of the nearby parking lot and a winding trail that leads down to a popular surfing spot, officials fear. City signs posted there even warn beachgoers to use the trail at their own risk. “It’s an active landslide area,” said Encinitas Director of Parks and Recreation Lisa Rudloff, adding that an unruly storm could cause another major bluff failure. After California State Parks shot down a past attempt, the city is trying to find a way to stabilize the bluff at Beacon’s, whether with a seawall or another alternative. “It’s not like we can easily say, ‘Oh, let’s just stabilize the bluff and let’s do it this way,’” Rudloff said. “It’s complicated because there are so many agencies involved.” Two weeks ago, the City Council directed Encinitas Parks and Recreation to work with a soil engineer to find a solution that hopefully appeases state parks and the Cal-
ifornia Coastal Commission. Councilmembers also asked for the department to come up with a proposal to shore up Beacon’s — complete with a cost estimate — at an undetermined date. Beacon’s was raised to a priority following a bluff collapse that destroyed a portion of the trail in 2001. The same year, state parks awarded a $2.75 million grant to stabilize the area and reconfigure the parking lot. In 2009, the city neared completion of plans to shore up the bluff with a seawall. But that same year, state parks retracted the grant, citing its policy against seawalls. Encinitas was able to apply the grant money to Moonlight Beach improvements. Still, questions over how to secure Beacon’s loomed. State parks Superintendent Robin Greene noted this all occurred before her time, but said two separate departments at state parks are responsible for handing out grants and enforcing policy. There should have between better communication beTURN TO BLUFF ON A27
CARLSBAD — Beginning next fall, all California school districts will be implementing a new funding formula and accountability system. To fulfill requirements under the new system, the Carlsbad Unified School District is collecting community input about how district funds should be spent to best prepare students for college and careers. Bruised from years of deficit spending, the district is “still not in great shape” financially, according to CUSD Superintendent Suzette Lovely. The new funding system, LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula), will maintain the same base funding for students and increase funding for high needs students, including English learners and foster children. LCFF is designed to give districts more control and flexibility over how they spend their money by eliminating 20 categorical programs, which restricted spending to certain programs. With the enhanced jurisdiction over how money is divided between local initiatives, districts are required to gather community feedback about how funds should be used. A handful of parents gathered at the district’s first town forum on March 13 voiced requests for a greater focus on student engagement, connecting classroom lessons to future careers, and teaching life skills. “(Students) get so focused on getting the 4.8 GPA to get into the right college, but they don’t even know how to fill out the college application,” said Kym Szalkiewicz, who has two kids in Carlsbad schools. She said that students should be taught how to fill out job applications and balance checkbooks. Brenda Becket requested that schools coach kids in time management, organization, work/life balance, and efficient studying techniques so stu-

dents will be well rounded and prepared for life’s demands after high school. A father of a Calavera Hills Middle School student emphasized that tying lessons to students’ career goals encourages them to take control of their education. Parents suggested that the district bolster internship opportunities for students so they can get a taste of future careers. They also emphasized a need for teachers to develop connections with
their students, so kids have a positive association with school. Sarah Anderson, a reading intervention specialist at Calavera Hills Elementary School, said a large part of that relies on lowering class sizes. “I would absolutely put (lower class sizes) as number one,” she said. The district is also collecting input via online surveys and meetings with advisory groups. The district is hosting a second town hall forum March 25
at 6:30 p.m. at Valley Middle School. Lovely explained that staff would take all of the statements received and identify common interests and themes. These interests will be compared to CUSD’s existing programs, services and resources. Staff will then determine if the district needs to develop any additional programs or services for the 2014-15 school year to meet the community’s priorities.

May the ‘Con’ be with you You know those times when you look at something relatively simple that has become iconic and think “Man, I wish I had thought of that!”? I feel that way about Comic-Con. It was created by three comic/fantasy/science fiction fans in 1970. I was a huge sci-fi fan in 1970, in San Diego, but somehow I missed the memo. Even thought it started as a one-day “minicon” and only drew 100 people, I’ll bet it was really fun. Well, apparently it was more than fun, since 34 years later, you have to have three good luck charms, a gypsy kiss, a closet full of cos-play costumes and, of course, a really good computer, to even try to get in. My daughter and her fiancé actually got tickets for the 2014 Con. I think it may be a bigger accomplishment than their engagement or her upcoming college graduation. They had to join the club first, months ago. Finally, the email went out with sale day information. Too bad if you were on vacation in Pago Pago. Stop me if you’ve heard this, but I was amazed. First you have to awaken at 6:45 a.m. so at 7 a.m., you can request to get on the Open Online Registration area. Based on my skill with the Internet, and my mental capacity at 7 a.m., I’d never make the cut. This step eventually gave my kids separate 25-character codes. The OOR is the online equivalent of the doctor’s office, where you then cool your heels, for up to two hours. Then, by random selection, you are invited to purchase … or not. My child was jubilant that both she and her guy were chosen. I feel like I should take them to Vegas – tonight. I am simply celebrating that I can say I have been to Comic-Con, in 2010. I was very enthusiastic, even painting my hair two colors, but I had no idea how lucky I was to be there. If ever there was a lesson in “Carpe Diem,” that was it. I think having actually been there (at my age) gives me almost as much street cred as having seen the Rolling Stones at the Fillmore. May Comic-Con live long and prosper.

Community wants to ‘save the Goat’ Council waives policy By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — “Save The Goat” was the community rallying cry that rang out at the City Council meeting March 19. The city is at the end of a 90 day extension to consider an agreement with Goat Hill Partners LLC, headed by John Ashworth, to upgrade the Center City Golf Course, fondly called Goat Hill. The agreement with Ashworth began in September 2012 and has gone through a community process. It is within final stages of approval, that have been extended several times. In September 2013, Real Salt Lake Major League Soccer franchise, headed by Dell Loy Hansen, and based in Utah, swept in to propose a soccer academy for elite players be developed on the 70 plus acres of public land. City council members said negotiations with Hansen “came fast.” The proposal includes upgrades to the present golf course, and the addition of six privatized soccer fields in the inital two years. A further 50 year lease would include development of a 5,000 seat stadium, two hotels, and a smaller golf course. “It’s an opportunity to bring a really cool situation to Oceanside,” Hansen said. “I’m glad to see so many passionate people like dirt golf, but the fairway’s gone.” “Oceanside has the chance to become the soccer capital.” City Council received over 200 emails, and 40 plus speakers addressed the item. Most speakers protested the soccer academy. Many said plans would not fit the dimensions of the hilly golf course property unless the land was cut and filled. The majority of speakers said the soccer academy that promised a professional soccer team in three years, and brought
with it stadium lights and traffic, was an ill fit for the residential neighborhood. “It’s a private entity that wants to steal our parkland,” Oceanside resident Pamela Myers said. “I’ve been playing that course for 30 years, and am not going to stop playing it,” Oceanside resident Lance Faanes said, adding he would continue to play golf there despite added soccer fields. Perhaps one of the most persuasive speakers was Janet Bledsoe Lacy, who reminded City Council that her family helped bring about 1972 city legislation that requires a public vote on land use changes. “The city cannot take any park or recreation property without a vote of the people of Oceanside,” Lacy said. Ashworth also spoke against the alternative proposal. “We sumitted a plan and were chosen back in August,” Ashworth said. “One hundred and twenty days ago we thought we were ready to go.” “I want what’s best for city as well, but now that I know the other plan, it’s not even close. “I hope you will reconsider our plan to make Goat Hill a sense of pride for the community and detination for tourists.” Councilman Gary Felien said it was worthwhile to look at both Hansen’s and Ashworth’s proposals and determine which would be more profitable for the city. Councilman Jack Feller said he heard the community say the soccer academy was a good idea, but not in Oceanside. “I can’t see this working, being in this location,” Feller said. Councilwoman Esther Sanchez also voiced objection to Hansen’s proposal. There was a cheer when Mayor Jim TURN TO GOAT HILL ON A26
2.5% pay increase approved for teachers, management at EUSD By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — All 545 EUSD (Encinitas Union School District) employees received a 2.5 percent raise — retroactive to July 2013 — as part of a three-year contract. The EUSD board of trustees unanimously approved the salary increases on March 11. “It’s a way of recognizing the hard work of our employees,” said Angelica Lopez, assistant superintendent of administrative services, on March 14. Of the 545 employees, 275 are teachers, 35 are in management and 235 are “classified” support positions like custodians and office managers. Substitute teachers, along with other hourly employees, did not get a salary hike because they aren’t district employees. Last fall, EUSD officials began talks with the unions TOE (Teachers of Encinitas) and COE (Classified of Encinitas). TOE asked for a 5 percent salary increase during the early stages of negotiations. Eventually, a 2.5 percent was settled on as a compromise, Lopez said. Leslie O’Keefe, TOE president, did not respond to a request for comment. EUSD receives most of its funding from property taxes. Lopez noted the district felt comfortable granting the raises after reviewing projections showing an increase in property tax

revenue. “We wanted to make sure we could continue to pay for the raises over a long period,” Lopez said. This is the first raise for district employees in six years, another reason the district approved the increase, she said. Because EUSD agreed to a raise with TOE, the district’s “me too” clause also gave a corresponding salary increase to COE and management, Lopez said. She added the clause is common in school districts throughout the country. Bumping up teacher pay 2.5 percent will cost EUSD $580,269 each year, according to a staff analysis. For a new teacher who began the school year at $39,200, pay will go up $980 this year. Respectively, the annual expense for increas-
ing classified employees’ salaries is $168,442 and for management it’s $80,794. The recent round of negotiations, according to Lopez, didn’t impact benefits. She noted that many teachers and school employees across the state have received salary increases this year due to budget situations improving. EUSD’s general fund this year calls for $47.8 million in revenue and $51.8 million in expenses, with nearly $10.3 million in reserves. As recently as two years ago, EUSD considered laying off 36 teachers. But it ultimately decided not to go through with it, largely due to the passage of Proposition 30. Ultimately, the measure translated into the district keeping funds that would have otherwise gone to the state.
to select committee By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — With 23 applicants for seven positions on the Shores Park Master Plan Advisory Committee, council members voted 4-1 at the March 17 meeting to waive a traditional policy of interviewing all interested parties. Instead they will each review all the applications and submit their top seven choices to the city manager by March 24. The top 10 candidates – more if there are ties – will then be interviewed and selected by the full council on April 21. A second option had council liaisons Sherryl Parks and Terry Sinnott reviewing the applications, conducting interviews and recommending to the full council who should be appointed. A third option, created by Sinnott, allowed council to use the entire pool of applicants by establishing a larger group of all 23 that would meet less frequently and provide broad direction on the master planning process. “I think this is a very important committee and (option one) gives the entire council some input on the final composition,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “To me that’s the fairest.” Mosier said he didn’t find the third option “attractive” because it would create “two levels of input and a potential conflict.” “You’re just creating a mixed message,” Mosier said. “I’m delighted that so many people are interested in helping for the Shores master plan, but in working with committees I think seven is an ideal number. And the larger the committee the more unwieldy it gets and the harder it is to get a consensus. “Every council member gets to weigh in on whoever their favorite choice is, and I think we’ll get a more diverse cast of characters on this committee,” Mosier said in support of the method council ultimately approved. “I’d like to keep the other 16 folks engaged,” said Sinnott, who cast the dissenting vote. He said appointing all 23 applicants would provide an opportunity, “as the process moves forward, to bounce suggestions, ideas off of these folks and get a cross section of the community’s reaction to how the process is going.” Sinnott said the key function of the seven-member group is to make sure process is thorough and engages the community. “But I’d also suggest that we use the other 16 people that have showed interest as another sounding board for how we’re doing,” Sinnott said. Mosier said residents will have several chances to provide input because public workshops are planned. “There’s going to be a lot of opportunity for com-
munity input,” he said “This is Del Mar. We’re all equal. “I think these people are engaged and will stay engaged whether they have a semi-official title or not,” Mosier added. “I certainly agree that we want as much community involvement as we can get, and the 23 applicants indicate we’re going to get a lot of community involvement. And I think that’s predictable and good.” In other news, council authorized the release of a request for proposals for a consultant to conduct a citywide satisfaction survey and approved contracts for two consulting firms to work on the City Hall planning process. Council members also directed staff, with a rare 3-2 vote, to document their decision to set aside alternative sites for the new City Hall. Last year council, staff and residents assessed several public and private sites for the new facility, including the Public Works Yard, the Shores property and buildings at South Fair. With evaluations of the options, council and the public, in a workshop and through a survey, indicated the current City Hall site at 1050 Camino del Mar is the preferred location to build the new facility. “I’m not necessarily suggesting that those are better options,” Councilman Al Corti said. “But in the next two or three months as we go through the process of picking consultants, looking at designs, getting an idea of costs, that we spend a little bit more time and perhaps a little bit more money on vetting some of the options so that come June we don’t have to sit here and look at the public and look at ourselves and say, ‘Maybe we should have done it.’” “The community has come forward with a number of alternatives that I think we need to put to bed,” Sinnott said, noting that other locations have benefits and downsides. “As we perfect our proposals for the community I want to make sure that those things are well documented so that they don’t resurrect themselves,” he added. “It’s important to take some of the alternatives and officially put them aside … and I don’t think we’ve officially done that as well as we should.” Resident Jacqueline Winterer disagreed. “This project has been analyzed to death,” she said. “We know everything that is possible to know about this project. … The public wants the City Hall to be in the middle of town. They want it to be in this property that you own in full. “Why do you want to go look up at all these other issues that have been considered and rejected?” Winterer asked. “Whenever you delay this project the cost of borrowing money is going to TURN TO COMMITTEE ON A26

Local ideas worth spreading By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — At TedX Encinitas, 22 speakers delivered monologues, ranging from eight to 15 minutes, on issues important to them March 15 at the Seaside Center for Spiritual Living. They included San Diegans Steve Wampler, the first person with cerebral palsy to climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, and Alex Kajitani, the California Teacher of the Year in 2009. Ted Talks, a global phenomenon, is all about sharing new ideas and sparking discussion through conferences and videos.

Demo and rebuild proposed for Nardo complex By Bianca Kaplanek

Maple Street Plaza could close to vehicles By Rachel Stine
ESCONDIDO — The city is considering closing Maple Street Plaza to most cars in the hopes of increasing pedestrian safety and lowering the costs to hold events in the plaza. The pedestrian-oriented plaza is decorated with public benches, tables, numerous trees, and a fountain, and was designed for rental for special events. The plaza’s intersecting brick roads connect Grand Avenue and Valley Parkway downtown, and the alleyway behind the businesses on both streets. The lack of a curbed sidewalk and asphalt roads lead many passersby to assume that cars are not allowed on the roadway as is, which has led to several almost-accidents between walkers and vehicles. “Our very attractive fountain attracts kids like crazy, and they don’t realize they are in the middle of the street. That’s when we started to get nervous,” said Joyce Masterson, the city’s director of economic development and community relations. She also said that many drivers traveling through the plaza do not realize that the street is one way from Grand Avenue to Valley Parkway. So city staffers have been exploring the possibility of closing the plaza to traffic from Grand Avenue and only permitting delivery trucks to pass through the plaza from the alleyway. At a community input meeting on Tuesday night, Dan Buse, who regularly makes deliveries along the alleyway, voiced concern that the closure could make it difficult for delivery trucks to access the businesses. He said that other delivery trucks and parked cars block off portions of the one-way alley, and if the plaza is closed he has
to back up his truck with a 38-foot long trailer into the alley to make deliveries. “I’m backing up my truck and there are people passing by me,” he said of the dangerous situation. One citizen suggested that the city add lightup stop signs to create greater awareness of the roadway through the plaza. But, a city traffic engineer explained that the city is trying to avoid sign pollution in the nice area and placement of the costly bright signs must meet strict state requirements. John Paul the Great Catholic University recently purchased the former bank building adjacent to the plaza, and the closure would make accessing the building’s parking lot difficult. Yet the university’s President Derry Connolly maintained that the trouble would be worth it for the greater benefit to the city. “Closing Maple is a huge disadvantage to the value of the building, but it’s huge also for Escondido,” he said at the meeting. Escondido’s Special Events Coordinator Teresa Collins explained that by completely closing Maple Street Plaza, organizations hosting events on the plaza would not have to pay the $600 fee to block off the area. Turning the plaza into a festival street could help with the city’s efforts to vitalize the downtown. “We were looking for a way for people to get to know the businesses down here,” said Masterson. Closing the plaza to cars would cost somewhere around $1,500, according to Masterson. The matter is anticipated to come before city council at an April meeting for an official decision.
SOLANA BEACH — The owner of a large apartment complex built more than four decades ago would like to demolish and rebuild the entire community. Preliminary plans were introduced to the public March 4 and 13 during identical open houses, during which attendees were urged to provide input — good and bad. Solana Highlands, built in 1972 at 701 Nardo Ave., currently has 194 one-, twoand three-bedroom units. H.G. Fenton Company, which bought the complex in 1998, is proposing to increase that to 260 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes with washers, dryers and storage spaces for all units, parking garages for all but about 10, updated interiors and Craftsman-style exteriors designed by Steve Dalton, who grew up on Nardo and was the architect for the renovated Fletcher Cove Community Center. There will also be more recreational and fitness features as well as bicycle and pedestrian-friendly landscaping. A key element in the revitalization is an increase in onsite parking, from about 1.5 spaces per unit to more than two. “Our hope and desire is to have adequate parking onsite to take cars off the street,” Mike Neal, president of H.G. Fenton said. The current 285 parking spaces within the complex will increase to 525, an 85 percent gain for 34 percent more units. “This project will allow us to alleviate parking issues,” John La Raia, the project manager, said. The current four entrances off South Nardo will be reduced to two. The main entrance will be moved farther east on Nardo, closer to Stevens Avenue and away from Fresca Street, to guide traffic toward Interstate 5 and away from the surrounding neighborhood. Also proposed are a variety of traffic-calming measures, such as “chokers,” curb extensions, raised crosswalks and medians, narrower lanes and speed humps. George Boyd, who lives north of the development, said at the March 4 workshop that he would like Nardo to be made wider, with a stop sign at Fresca. “I’m all for calming,” he said. “But Nardo is already too narrow.” The 13-acre site will be divided into three distinct communities. Two-story bungalows will be located along Nardo. Lifestyle units will be situated around the pool area, while the valley view component will have views of the surrounding valleys and Del Mar Fairgrounds. All new buildings facing Nardo will be no taller than the existing ones and the setback for those dwellings will be increased. The tallest buildings will be three stories, located at the southern edge and southeast slope toward Stevens Avenue. The modernized complex will also include several sustainability features,

including electric vehicle charges, energy-efficient appliances, drought-tolerant landscaping, a community recycling program and a saltwater pool with solar heating. To comply with city regulations, there will be 32 affordable units for those in the “low-income” category. The original project had 39 affordable units for renters classified at very-low and very, very-low income levels. That obligation expired in 2010 and many of those units converted to the market rate. There are currently 22 income-restricted apartments. The project will be completed in three phases to allow residents to remain in the complex, but in a different unit, during construction. There is no start date or any estimate as to how long the project will take to complete once it begins. City Manager David Ott stressed that nothing has
been approved by the city. “They have to make it better than it is today and show how they are going to make it better,” Ott said. “Eventually it will get to City Council, but we’re not there yet.” Ott said he encouraged community outreach and the developer “said they wouldn’t have it any other way.” “We want your feedback,” La Raia said. “We’d love to hear if this is something you like or don’t like.” Comments overall at the March 4 open house were positive, but residents did have a few concerns. Phil Weber, who lives near the complex, worried that residents would use the garages for storage rather than cars, which wouldn’t solve the traffic and parking issues. La Raia said H.G. Fenton will cancel a lease if a tenant is not using the garage for vehicles. “That is a huge deal for
us,” he said. Weber also wasn’t thrilled that all of the trees would be removed during grading since they currently block his view of the complex. La Raia said most were diseased or dying and they will be replaced with new trees. Weber was also concerned about the project timeline. “I like the design,” he said. “The buildings are nice. But I’m worried about the dust and noise mitigation. I’d rather have it messy for a while and done.” “We want the phasing to flow and be done back to back,” La Raia said, adding that a construction plan has yet to be developed. He said it’s too early in the process to estimate what the rental prices will be. Current rates range between $1,500 and $2,200. Community members can view the 3-D model, meet the manager and ask questions at the leasing office from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. every other Tuesday beginning March 25.

Council OKs 6 meters on Ocean Avenue By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Despite opposition from one colleague and several residents, including 32 who signed a petition, council members authorized staff with a 4-1 vote at the March 17 meeting to move forward with plans to install six parking meters on the west side of Ocean Avenue adjacent to Seagrove Park. Paul Heimgaertner, who manages the apartment complex at 1425 Ocean Ave., where he’s lived for 22 years, said many who signed the petition he circulated consider the meters a punishment. “They feel that the atmosphere of Del Mar is kind of punishing the residents,” Heimgaertner said. “I have seen a lot of changes in Del Mar. This is one change I don’t see that’s really beneficial to the residents who live there. This is pushing into a residential area.” Of the 22 apartments in his complex, only 10 have a garage. “So those people use those spaces,” he said. “People from Coast Boulevard use those spaces. Visitors use those spaces. I don’t think we should even penalize the visitors there because I see those visitors … using the park … and then I see them put their belongings back in their car and go into town where they spend money.” Kevin Walsh owns a unit in the Vista Del Mar complex. “Some of the residents there don’t have garages,” he said. “Some of them are relatively elderly people so they have to really scramble now to find a parking space,” Walsh added. “I think if we

go ahead and add six more meters it’s going to make it even more difficult for some of the residents there.” In the past 20 years, Walsh said, “the burden has been placed largely on people who live in the area as far as parking is concerned.” The meters have the potential to increase the daytime turnover of parked cars, which would result in more public access to the park and beach. It would also create safer unloading for park visitors and beachgoers. In a letter to the city, John Peterson noted the parking spaces are heavily used by people living on the east side of Ocean Avenue. He stated that if paid parking is installed, residents will park on other nearby street spaces, negating any net increase of coastal access. The meters could generate at least $42,000 in annual revenue for maintenance of the city’s coastal accesses and amenities. The west side of the street, which is zoned for public parks, is one of three areas council members considered when they discussed expanding paid parking in September. The Traffic and Parking Advisory Committee discussed the issue and agreed to support the project in October. The meters, which would take coins or credit cards, will allow parking for $3 per hour, with a maximum of four hours, similar to other beachfront meters. Cars are currently allowed to park in the spaces for a maximum of 72 hours. The metered parking
will be enforced daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. According to the staff report, the spaces are frequently occupied by vehicles for more than four hours and often for days. “I can understand residents feeling resentful and really shortchanged,” Councilwoman Sherryl Parks said. “What troubles me so much is when I see photographs of the same car using that space like it is their parking space.” “I have really mixed feelings about this because I think we need more parking,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “It’s unfortunate that residents will be impacted by this change. “The nature of the objection is that because these buildings didn’t have enough parking capacity (when they were built), we now should provide on-street parking,” he added. “These are public spaces and residents have some expectation of having parking for guests in front of their residence. But I think taking only six spaces adjacent to a park when these people are already 20 someodd spaces short is not a substantial change. “I think this is a small increment that provides better access to the park,” Mosier said. “I’m inclined to support this although I understand the objections of the residents and it will wreck some hardships.” “This is a residential community primarily,” said Councilman Terry Sinnott, who cast the dissenting vote. “The history is interesting. The apartment complex was there prior to Seagrove Park. “I don’t think our problem is providing more con-
venient access to the beach,” he said. “I’d rather just leave it as is. … Even though this, in concept, I think is a good idea, when you get down to practicalities of who might be impacted … I think this is not where we need to put our meters.” Staff will submit an application to the California Coastal Commission, which must approve the meters before they are installed. In other news, council members directed staff to create an ordinance amendment that expands the definitions of smoking to include electronic cigarettes. Once drafted, that will be presented to council for a vote. Council also agreed to send a letter of opposition to the California Coastal Commission in response to that agency’s staff requiring the removal of the boardwalk trail on the south side of the south overflow parking lot across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds. With the restoration of that parcel currently under way, Del Mar officials recently learned the CCC staff indicated they may require the removal of the boardwalk, according to the Del Mar staff report. “The Coastal Commission staff removed the existing coastal trail from that approved (restoration) plan with no discussion,” Mosier said. “And in fact it wasn’t even on the plan that the Coastal Commission approved. “So this was a staff decision with no public input,” he added. “So not only is the move objectionable, but the process is objectionable.”

City’s water supply in ‘good shape’ despite drought Water district does ask customers to voluntarily reduce water usage By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — With little rain this winter and nearby lakes dropping below capacity, the signs of California’s drought are easy enough to observe locally. After two consecutive dry years and a third underway, concerns about mandatory water supplies and cutbacks have swelled. But for the Carlsbad Municipal Water District, the outlook for 2014 isn’t that dire. “We’re in good shape,” said Wendy Chambers, assistant general manager of the Carlsbad Municipal Water District, before the City Council on March 18. The district is expected to meet Carlsbad’s water needs this year without mandatory water rationing thanks to conservation efforts and supply diversification. Water use in the region is down 27 percent since 2007, and the district’s recycled water program makes up 20 percent of it water supply portfolio. The Carlsbad Municipal Water District has also worked with the San Diego County Water Authority Vista. Cost is $5, free to members of Alta Vista Gardens.

(SDCWA) to vary the region’s water suppliers. Today, 50 percent of SDCWA’s water comes from the Colorado River, 30 percent comes from the state water project, and 20 percent comes from local supplies and conservation. “We have higher reliability because we diversified,” Chambers said. But she cautioned that with no definitive end in sight for the drought, the importance of conservation has never been higher. “This last rain helped a little bit, but not nearly enough,” she added, referring to the brief rainstorm that sprinkled over San Diego County a few weeks ago. “If this drought continues and it stays dry for several years, these reserves will drop. It’s really unsustainable.” The Carlsbad Municipal Water District declared a “Drought Response Level 1,” which asks customers to voluntarily reduce water usage, on March 10. The district will be working with the city to bolster conservation outreach and flood the community with tips on how to save water. Together they are urging citizens to turn on sprinklers only before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. and repair water leaks as soon as possible. Pardo, at (760) 453-8220 or email@example.com.

Council supports reversing 2010’s Citizens United ruling By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — The city joined a growing national movement to reign in campaign spending. Council members unanimously passed a non-binding resolution last week to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling. Due to the decision, corporations, unions and individuals can contribute freely to Super PACs and their affiliated 501 (c) 4s to influence elections. public speakers Several warned the decision could open the door for additional outside spending in local campaigns. According to city rules in place, an individual or organiza-
tion can’t give more than $250 to a council candidate. But in the aftermath of Citizens United, contributors could potentially skirt the code by funneling money into Super PACs and 501 (c) 4s. Those groups can’t coordinate directly with candidates’ campaigns, but they could spend money on advertisements to support the candidates. Diane Lane, representing the local chapter of Keep Money out of Politics, said the resolution is symbolic, yet it will send the message to national legislators that Citizens United should be overturned. “The point is to flood congress with support for overturning Citizens United,” Lane said,
noting 500 cities across the U.S. have passed the same resolution, including three other cities in the county. Councilman Tony Kranz said he’s in favor of reversing Citizens United. However, he believes draft amendments to overturn it would give the government too much power to regulate political speech. Hence, it’s key that any amendment is written carefully, he added. “For me, the key is getting congress to propose an amendment to the constitution that I could support,” Kranz said. Encinitas’ $250 contribution limit was established in 2001. Council also voted for city
staff to bring back a report on chaining the city’s campaign contribution limit to the consumer price index, which measures price changes for a variety of consumer goods. That way, council members said the contribution cap is tied to the standard of living, and the limit wouldn’t have to be reexamined on a regular basis. Solana Beach and the city of San Diego, for instance, automatically make adjustments to contribution limits based on the consumer price index. A city staff report cited six cities in the county that don’t cap contributions, while the remaining 12 cities limit contributions, ranging from a $100 cap to a $4,100 ceiling.
In a separate move, council members also voted 4-1 to increase the mayor’s salary by $100 a month beginning in 2016. Currently, the mayor and councilmembers take home $1,186 a month. Councilmembers agreed that being mayor comes with added responsibilities, justifying the raise. Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar, the sole vote against the motion, said she would prefer that the mayor’s vehicle allowance was increased $100 instead of the salary raise. In November, Encinitas voters will directly elect the mayor for the first time, doing away with a council majority selecting the position.

CUSD sets goals for facility improvements, new theater By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — The CUSD Board of Trustees set priorities for upgrading facilities, safety, and campus access for disabled students as well as reviewed proposed designs for Sage Creek High School’s new performing arts center at its Wednesday night meeting. The Board reviewed the district’s new facilities master plan, which sets construction priorities at the various campuses and offices for the next five years. The priority projects outlined will cost the district an estimated total of over $60 million. So far the district has about $44 million in available capital improvement funds, and staff anticipates it will be able to obtain the remainder of the funds over the 5-year period. Both Board members and district staff are aware of several district buildings that do not meet current ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations and are difficult to access for disabled students, teachers, and campus visitors. Carlsbad High School was designated to receive a $1.2 million redesigned administration building so that people in wheelchairs would not have to leave campus to access the front of the building. The Cultural Arts Center was also assigned an interior upgrade in the coming years for increased ADA access and better building space for the theater’s scenery and props. Enhanced safety features, including better fencing, security systems, and
designated campus entry points, are planned for numerous campuses as well. The Board also viewed three architecture firms’ proposed designs for Sage Creek High School’s new performing arts center, which will be built at the campus’s main entrance. All of the designs incorporated the Board’s requests for a 250- to 350-seat main theater, black box theater, orchestra pit, sustainable construction and amenities, as well as a $9 million budget. The first proposal, from Rachlin Partners, incorporated a modern looking, rounded metal facade that resembled the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Announcements for performances and school activities could be projected onto the front of the building. The two-story space included a theater with 340 seats, an orchestra pit that could be converted for extra seats or stage space, interlacing catwalks, and doors in the back of the stage for projections to shine through onto a screen or scenery. “We thought you need some drama in a performing arts center,” said Michael Rachlin, a partner at the firm. The next design, from Sillman Wright Architects, consisted of a front-facing lobby housed by two-story windows with a metal roof that wrapped around the side walls and an adjacent metal ticket booth. With a design created to inspire and teach, Larry Sillman said, “Our building responds to the 21st century educational goals.”
The rendering incorporated a sculpture plaza for students to gather and a theater space with 345 seats and a convertible orchestra pit. The last design for the center focused on constructing a building that would blend well with the rest of Sage Creek High School’s campus with sandy bricks and a metal roof. LPA’s proposal featured a roof that would filter rainwater to treatment in a landscaped area below. It also included a 300seat theater with another orchestra pit that could make way for additional stage space. Kevin Leslie, the building’s designer, said the team strived to “design a building that creates a gateway to the campus, a new front door.” The Board members complimented Rachlin’s design for it’s modern, professional, and dramatic look and the theater’s acoustic features, but expressed concern that it would stick out from the rest of the campus. They voiced favor for Sillman Wright Architects’ lobby layout, but were not thrilled with the ticket booth being front and center to the campus entrance. They admired LPA’s focus on sustainable design and how it fit with the rest of the school’s design, but acknowledged that it had the fewest amount of theater seats compared to the other proposals. The Board will select a firm at a later meeting once they have the chance to ask follow up questions about the designs.
REGION — Not long after celebrating his fifth year as president and superintendent of MiraCosta College, Dr. Francisco Rodriguez announced on March 13 that he would be resigning his position. Rodriguez has accepted a position to become chancellor of the Los Angeles Community College District. His resignation will become effective May 31. According to Cheryl Broom, director, public relations and governmental relations, marketing and communications, Rodriguez will remain working at the college until that time. A timetable to find a replacement should take place within the next several months, Broom said. “During that time the Board will decide if they want to appoint an acting president from within MiraCosta’s leadership or go outside and try to find an interim president,” Broom said. In a statement released by the college, Rodriguez said that, “I have no doubt that the college’s outstanding reputation will attract superb candidates to serve as the next superintendent/ president.” Since his joining the college, Rodriguez has been credited with helping the college district balance the budget and more than double student graduation numbers. Rodriguez was making $256,200 annually while at MiraCosta. Broom said the college does have a number of projects that they’ve made a

How embarrassment can put your health at risk

Cyclist hit on the 101 By Tony Cagala
ENCINITAS — For the second time in two months, a motorist collided with a bicyclist at an identical spot on Coast Highway 101. On March 14, a motorist traveling south on the highway, attempted a left hand turn into the entrance of the Ride Cyclery bicycle shop, when the vehicle collided with a cyclist heading southbound. The cyclist, who was wearing a helmet, sustained cuts and bruises and received treatment from emergency personnel at the scene. The rider wasn’t taken to a hospital, according to Sheriff’s deputy Aaron Montan. Montan said the driver just didn’t see the cyclist before making the turn. In February, a motorist hit a bicyclist at the same location. The cyclist also sustained minor injuries, but was taken to the hospital for further evaluation, after a vehicle attempted to make a right hand turn into the driveway.
“Sometimes you take the simple things of life for granted. But once you face colon cancer, you tend to reevaluate how important it is to have your large intestine in check,” says Kimberly Gross, wife, runner, swimming coach, business woman and colon cancer survivor. Did you know Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men and women combined in the United States? Remarkably, despite its high incidence, colon cancer is one of the most detectable and, if found early enough, most treatable forms of cancer. Caring for your large intestine’s health involves talking about it with your physician and learning about the factors that might put you at risk of developing colorectal cancer.

Barth said the ordinance would go hand-in-hand with additional enforcement. She stated without an ordinance in place, the city risks bars getting out of hand and dragging property values down, which is what happened in Manhattan Beach, Calif. “We have an opportunity right now in Encinitas not to go down that path, but to maintain the quality of life citywide,” CROP Barth .93said. Currently, bars that .93 acquired a liquor license 4.17 ago face fewer 20 years 4.28 regulations than new establishments. But the ordinance proposed to level the playing field with a stricter permit system for all late-night bars. It also would have put a new complaint system in place. Once a complaint is filed, according to the ordinance, a code enforcement officer or Sheriff’s Deputy would investigate a matter. Clear evidence would have to demonstrate a bar is responsible for a violation like trash. If culpable, a business would first receive a warning, and then a fine if another legitimate complaint is filed within 12 months. Finally, there would be a hearing before an administrative officer if problems continue. From that point, bars that don’t comply could lose their liquor license, the ordinance states. Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar was concerned the ordinance would allow residents to level false complaints against bars they don’t like. “These businesses are already on high alert,” Gaspar said.
years old are on the rise. 5. Reduce the risk According to the American Cancer Society, the links between diet, weight and exercise, and the risk of developing colorectal cancer are some of the strongest for any type of cancer. For example, a high intake of red and processed meats can increase colorectal cancer risk, whereas diets that include a healthy amount of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains have been linked to lower colorectal cancer risk. So remember: • If you are 50 years of age or older, you are at higher risk of developing colorectal cancer • People with a first-degree relative affected by colorectal cancer have two to three times the likelihood of suffering from this illness. • Don’t let embarrassment get in the way of your health. Ask your doctor if a colorectal cancer screening is right for you. For more information please call (855) 222-8262 or visit tricitymed.org Deputy Mayor Mark Muir noted the city recently passed an operational management plan to prevent restaurants from “morphing” into late-night bars. That seemed to address late-night issues — one reason an ordinance is unnecessary at this time, he said. Under the management plan, businesses applying for a new liquor license have to put together noise and other mitigation strategies as a condition of their permit. More than 140 alcohol-related complaints have been filed with the city over the past five years, according the city staff report. And the Sheriff’s Department received 67 calls for service to bars during that time. City Planning Director Jeff Murphy said based on public testimony, most who are frustrated with rowdy nightlife aren’t calling in to report problems. To better track and address intoxication issues, the city plans on creating a single-point of contact — a phone number and website — for residents, Murphy said. The city’s new fulltime code enforcement officer will replace a vacant part-time position. The cost of increasing a position from part time to full time couldn’t be obtained by press time. It will be paid for by finding cost savings in the budget, instead of new money. Resident Shirley Finch said many believe the city hasn’t done enough to fix alcohol problems, but an ordinance represented a chance to turn that perception around.

In her second ‘tri,’ Davis is a champion sports talk jay paris The alarm clock crows at 4:20 a.m. and off Susanne Davis goes. This Monday morning includes teaching a spin class at Encinitas’ Ecke YMCA, sprinting back home to make lunches, dropping her youngsters off at school and then capping it with a coaching session. That morphs into an afternoon workout, which precedes collecting the kids from their studies and then it’s time for homework. There’s dinner to be cooked before that same clock is seldom spotted past 9 p.m. by a spent Davis.
“That’s a full day,’’ Davis said. “And it’s pretty typical.’’ The same can’t be said of the dynamo Davis. The woman with the engaging smile and likewise engine is on the go and in the news. Davis recently graced Sports Illustrated’s venerable “Faces in the Crowd” feature and that brought a smile to one Davis mug, 10-year-old Matthew. “He thought that was pretty cool,’’ said Davis, of her son’s reaction. Davis, 42, is always in action and was named the women’s masters triathlete of 2013 by USA Triathlon. “I’m faster now than I was when I was in my 20s,’’ Davis said. That was way back when Davis competed in the triathlon’s 2000 U.S. Olympics Trials. But the tribulation of not reaching the Australia Summer
Games left Davis down under. She was burnt. She was done. She didn’t want to hear the word “triathlon” let alone participate in one. It was time to raise a family while exiting the athletic merry-go-around, thank you. “You judge yourself so much by your time or place,’’ Davis said. “It is such a big part of your life that it becomes your identity.’’ Soon Davis’ worth revolved around being a wife, mom and how cool is that? But after the birth of her second child Brooke, and seeking to shed 60 pounds, Davis returned to an old friend. Davis no longer eyed the triathlon with disdain. In 2010, five years after her first Ironman World Championship, Davis was kicking tail in
Kona in setting the 35-39 age-group record. “I took a half-hour off my time and was the top American (female) amateur finisher,’’ she said. “I thought, ‘I got a shot to be really good at this.’’’ Bingo, and Davis was back. Last year she was a perfect eight-for-eight in her 40-44 category in triathlons, which included the Olympic-distance nationals in Milwaukee. Her stellar season was highlighted in Hawaii where her fourth Ironman was golden. Davis sped through the three events in 9 hours, 41 minutes and 40 seconds. It was a time for the ages as no Masters female had gone that fast since, well, ever in the iconic event’s 35-year-old history. “I get faster every time I do it,’’ Davis said.

Surf shops face off in the water for unique competition By Tony Cagala
ENCINITAS — At stake: bragging rights among the county’s surf shops, a full page ad in Surfer Magazine and an all expenses paid trip to South America to compete in the national championship. On March 28, 17 teams from county surf shops will compete at Seaside Reef at about 8:30 a.m. for the 2014 Oakley Surf Shop Challenge. But what makes this competition so unique is that half of the four-man teams are surf shop employees.
Darren Brillhart, contest director, explained that the surf shops that carry Oakley products are invited to compete. “And the teams consist of two of their pro athletes, most of these surf shops have team riders, and then two of their employees, that actually work on the floor,” he said. “And that’s the unique thing that adds to the event. You have the actual employees that work in the store competing for the shop. A number of North County’s surf shops, includ-

Is there a region in particular that seems to dominate the championship overall? I would say Sweetwater (in Florida) would be one of the shops that have dominated.

Tris (Shailene Woodley), and Four (Theo James) in “Divergent.” Photo by Jaap Buitendijk
Best to diverge away from ‘Divergent’ By Noah S. Lee
“Divergent” tries to come into its own but fails in its strive for individuality, all because it can’t recognize the absence of color and depth within its uninteresting personality. In the future, humanity has attained a period of stability ever since society divided itself into five virtue-based factions: Amity, Candor, Erudite, Abnegation, and Dauntless. Every teenager is presented with a choice: either you stay with the faction you were born into, or you transfer to a new one. No matter your choice, you must serve your community. Unfortunately, Beatrice “Tris” Prior (Shailene Woodley) is Divergent, which means no category is a perfect match for her, making her a threat to everything society stands for. As she navigates the challenges of hiding her secret, Tris discovers a sinister conspiracy brewing in her seemingly ideal world. “Divergent” claims to have an identity of its own, and insists that it doesn’t fit into any one category. Well, it’s one thing to say you’re unique, but it’s another to prove it. The truth is, “Divergent” has nothing to prove, because nothing about its much-publicized uniqueness is true. But what’s worse is that its generic personality doesn’t relegate it to “time filler” status. If anything, it disappears into the crowd and never raises its head again. In terms of plot structure, the film lacks focus; it can’t decide whether to concentrate on what makes Divergent people a threat to the five factions or emphasize Dauntless members’ responsibilities. Because of this shortcoming, the script stumbles at key dramatic moments such as when certain supporting characters die or revelations concerning the factions emerge. Without a clear direction, the film can’t expect to survive. But most important of all, “Divergent” refuses to answer the number one question: what makes being
Divergent so dangerous? This question is brought up many times throughout the film, but never receives a detailed response. I’d hoped for some clarification on this issue; alas, director Neil Burger doesn’t fill in the blanks, thereby creating more blanks that can’t be filled. I don’t like delivering bad news, but if there is no sufficient answer to a question, there is no film. By the way, I think this is the first time that a film’s human-centric action sequences have failed to impress me, not because of technical problems but because of lifelessness. All those fistfights and firefights involving Tris and her fellow teammates appear to exude energy and spirit, but looks can be deceiving. None of the fights, both small and big, possess a degree of tension, and are too simulated to come off as natural. The physical and mental tests required to join Dauntless also become repetitive far too quickly. All I saw were the same hallucinatory fear sessions and dimly-lit sparring matches — again and again to the point where I wondered, does this film suffer from a lack of imagination? Perhaps that is the case, given the monotonous nature of these tests. Burger’s choice of cast is…unsatisfying, to say the least. Accomplished indie actress Shailene Woodley (“The Spectacular Now”) could not carry the film as
Tris, no matter how genuine her intentions and efforts were. The same applies to Theo James, whom I believe was relatively colorless in his role of the mysterious Dauntless warrior Four. And why the chemistry between them didn’t involve expressing how they felt about each other baffles me. The supporting actors, which include Ansel Elgort, Zoë Kravitz, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, and Kate Winslet, display limited emotional range (almost certainly due to the story/ script problems). Their characterizations are too dull to make much of an impression, and you learn next to nothing about them. Such a shame they couldn’t even save “Divergent” from itself. It hurts to have no name, and I can only imagine how much “Divergent” must be hurting from the realization that its name carries no distinctive traits. And because this newest addition to the youngadult movie craze has nothing to call its own, it is only logical to assume that its sequel, “Insurgent,” will face the same problems.
ardiff-by-the- Sea has gone through some major changes in the last few decades. Just 20 years ago, it was nothing more than a laid-back surf town with no sign of sidewalk lighting or manicured landscaping. Before Pipes Cafe and the Cardiff Kook, this seaside paradise was known for little more than good surf breaks and friendly people. Over the years many of the favorite local staples have slowly been pushed out to make way for more upscale and trendy replacements. Miracles Cafe, Jenny’s Place and Yogi’s Bar & Grill, once hotspots, are now long gone. But the one part of Cardiff that has held strong, clinging to the good old days, are the epic dive bars. Somehow this beach community, now one of the most popular places to live
in the entire country, has managed to keep its collection of “leave your class at the door” dive bars intact. From the Shanty to The Kraken — this beach town knows how to have an old-fashioned divey good time. The Shanty: Oh, the Shanty. This local dive has been the home of bad pickup lines and “I can’t believe I did that” moments for over 60 years. Nestled between Patagonia and the Cardiff-bythe-Sea Lodge, this old-timer is taking up some prime real estate just blocks from the beach with it’s dark and divey appeal. The Shanty is the best Cardiff destination for a not-so-classy Halloween. Just be sure to smile for the camera when it comes around (or avoid it at all costs) because there’s a good chance your sloshy mug dressed as the male version of Miley Cyrus will spend the better part of a year thumbtacked to their walls.
that has stood the test of time. Known for it’s brash staff, nightly live music and weekend BBQs, the Kraken is still going strong. Some nights attract the barely 21 crowd and others you’ll find nothing but 40+ locals taking tequila shots - either way, it’s always a good time.
Duke’s Cardiff Office: Having grown up in Cardiff, I was always told to avoid this place like the plague. As a kid, I’d head down to VGs Donuts for a Sunday morning maple bar and watch people walk in and stumble out of The Office as early as 7 a.m. But, once I reached legal drinking age and took my first trip to this local Cardiff stomping ground, I was pleasantly surprised. Sure, there were your typical “don’t make eye contact” kind of patrons and a serious lack of windows, but there was also a fun Cheerstype appeal. Plus, it has pool tables, shuffleboard and even allows dogs. For a midday whistle-wetter, it doesn’t get The Kraken: In typical much better than that. Kraken style — this dive won’t go down without a Carli Leavitt is a Cardiff fight. Surrounded by up- native who spends her free scale restaurants and locat- time surfing, blogging, and ed literally across the street enjoying all San Diego has to from the ocean, the Kraken offer.

Documentary tells ‘American story’ By Promise Yee
SANTA ANA — Executive producer Ecar Oden said the story of Japnese American internment camps operating in the U.S. during World War II is an American story. Oden, writers and producers Jeff Redd and Denis Donovan, and director Brad Hagen, of Video Resources Inc., based in Santa Ana, are currently working on a documentary film to tell that story. The idea for the film, “Three Lenses,” began with Oden’s interest in landscape photographer Ansel Adams.
While researching Adams’ work Oden discovered a series of photos on the Manzanar internment camp that was donated to the National Trust. Oden also found documentary photographer Dorothea Lange, and incarcerated photographer Toyo Miyatake, had taken photographs of the interment camps in California, Oregon and Washington. Each photographer came upon the opportunity differently. Adams was invited to the Manzanar Relocation Camp by his friend and
camp director, who hoped to humanize the camp experince for Japanese Americans. Lange was hired by the U.S. government to photograph “happy Japanese” for a propaganda campain. Lange did not agree with the propaganda and included signage in the photographs, such as “I am an American,” that helped tell the true story of the time. Lange’s efforts battled against newspaper and radio propaganda that labled all Japenese Americans “the enemy.” “The media created
hysteria of the Japense menace,” Oden said. “Very few people stood up for Japanese Americans. Pearl Harbor was used as an excuse.” Oden said unjust laws had been written years earlier specifically to curtail the business success of Japense Americans. Miyatake was the third photographer Oden researched. He was a well-known Los Angeles photographer, who was incarerated at the Manzanar camp because he TURN TO AMERICAN STORY ON A27

SOLANA BEACH — Deciding which concerts to attend at Solana Beach’s iconic Cedros Avenue music venue just got easier thanks to Belly Up Tavern Radio, a streaming station on the facility’s homepage that allows live music junkies to hear artists who will be performing in upcoming shows. The station is from DeliRadio, a free service that has attracted more than 13,000 artists since it began about two-and-ahalf years ago. Members of DeliRadio who will be performing at the Belly Up are automatically featured on the radio station. Listeners can filter music by genre. “The artists control their presence,” DeliRadio founder Wayne Skeen said. “They upload tracks and photos and a slide show plays while the music is playing.” Skeen said one of his goals for the station is to allow touring musicians “to get their music out in front of them, like a wave.” There is also a smartphone app that allows users to share their likes, see what their friends are listening to and follow the bands. “Seeing music is a social affair,” Skeen said. “With the app you can see who might be interested in going to the concerts.” DeliRadio is privately funded with sponsors
rather than commercials. “Think (National Public Radio),” Skeen said, “where something is brought to you by …” Skeen graduated from college with a finance degree and started his career in hedge funds and investing. He eventually left that world when his music hobby led him to start a record label. “I recognized what I felt was missing and that’s what DeliRadio is,” he said. Part of his motivation to start the business was a consolidation of radio stations in the 1990s. “There wasn’t a lot of diversity,” he said. “Current music sounds so manufactured. This brings you real bands that are coming into town in a van or a bus. It doesn’t get much more local than this.” DeliRadio has stations worldwide. Close to home, in addition to Belly Up, they include Porter’s Pub at the University of California San Diego and the 710 Beach Club. Going forward, Skeen would like stations such as Belly Up Tavern Radio to include live announcers who are “interesting and compelling to the listeners.” “It would be great to get back to the heyday of radio interviews,” he said. “There was a time when DJs were educators. That was surely a good time.” To listen to Belly Up Tavern Radio, visit bellyup.com.

Back to the beginnings... sort of G. Love & Special Sauce are emerging with a new album reminiscent of earlier works, but with a harder edge G. Love & Special Sauce play House of Blues San Diego March 21. Courtesy photo By Alan Scully
The version of “Sugar,” the new studio album that will be released April 22 by G. Love & Special Sauce, is not at all the album Love thought he was ready to release when he returned from a recording session in Seattle last year. Prior to that recording session, Love (real name Garrett Dutton) had done what has become standard procedure for his albums. He brought in a stack of new songs to Emmett Malloy, president of his label, Brushfire Records, Josh Nicotra, general manager of Brushfire and his personal manager, Jason Brown. Then this “committee” reviews the songs, offers its critiques and eventually chooses a group of tunes

that are likely to make the album. “Every one of the tunes is like my song, so it’s a little hard to hear (them say) ‘This verse needs to be re-written’ or ‘This groove is nothing,’” Love said of the process during a recent phone interview. “It’s pretty hardcore. So a lot of s**t gets left on the cutting room floor. But I’ve made myself comfortable with the process.” But for “Sugar,” the process became less comfortable than usual for Love when he returned from Seattle. “After the Seattle session, I was like, ‘Wow, we really did it. We really got it this time,’” Love said. “And we played it for the label, and (Brown) and they all
just felt like it was falling short. I was really pissed off, man. “I went in and did it (the album) and like excelled at it and killed it,” he said. w w“And now you say you don’t like it? What the f***?’” That wasn’t the end of the confusion for Love. His committee further said they liked only one song from the Seattle session, “Come Up Man.” Ironically, that song had been rejected in the initial review. Love recorded it anyway, feeling the song brought a different direction to his funky blend of blues, hip-hop, folk and rock. Stung by the reaction
to his new recordings, Love decided he’d give Malloy, Noctra and Brown what they now wanted — an entire album built off of “Come Up Man.” “I went back and picked out all of the tunes that I had that fit in with that (song),” Love related. “That’s how we got this record.” Actually, Love got something more with “Sugar.” He actually got a CD that took him back to his 1994 debut album, “G. Love and Special Sauce.” For the second recording session at Brushfire’s solar powered studio in Los Angeles, Love brought back Jimi “Jazz” Prescott, the original bassist in Special Sauce, to play with the other original member of
the group, Jeffrey “Houseman” Clemens.” Prescott had recorded with Love in Seattle, but the second recording session marked the first time in eight years that Prescott had worked with Love and Clemens. It wasn’t just the musicians that connected back to the “G. Love and Special Sauce” album. Like the debut, “Sugar” was also recorded mainly live in the studio by the three musicians. What’s more, Love feels “Sugar” draws from the same blues and hip-hop influences that shaped the sound on that 1994 debut album. “Sugar,” though, is not a re-run of the first album. Where the debut was laid
back, with Love frequently rapping his lyrics over songs that mostly featured acoustic instrumentation, “Sugar” is decidedly harder edged. “Come Up Man,” the album’s opening track sets the tone, with Love unleashing some electric slide guitar around the greasy hard-hitting groove generated by Prescott and Clemens. Songs that follow, such as “Nite Life” (which sounds like it could have been on a classic album by War), “Good Life” (with Love letting loose on harmonica), “Nothing Else Quite Like Home” (which might remind some of Ben Harper),” and the sharp and sassy title song also fit the rocking blues/ hip-hop mold.

Turning 65 this year? Understand your Medicare Options. Medicare is a great start, but it never was designed to cover everything. For example, it only pays 80 percent for the Medicare allowed amount of covered healthcare expenses. The rest comes out of your own pocket. So, depending on your personal situation, you’ll want to review your choices for getting coverage beyond Original Medicare. At a minimum you will want to have Part D drug plan coverage. Even if you are still working or retired and are covered by your company’s health plan, you are probably paying something in premiums every month. Now that you are about to turn 65, you could get on a Medicare Advantage Plan where the monthly premi-
Original Medicare coverage may not be enough um is $0. Another option would be a Medicare Supplemental Plan that usually has lower premiums than most company insurance plans. Selecting the right coverage can be confusing, and making the right decision might be more complex than you expect. You have a window of opportunity: Three months before your 65th birthday month, the month of your 65th birthday, three months after your 65th birthday month (seven months), where you can not be denied Medicare Insurance. By planning ahead, your Medicare coverage can start on the first day of the month you turn 65. For more information and a no-cost review of your Medicare options, contact: Douglas Kerr, Secure Horizon / United Healthcare (Lic#0G64783) Advisor at (760) 473-7721. Doug@ MedicareInsurance SanDiego.com or online at MedicareInsurance SanDiego.com. He will make sense out of all the “stuff” you have been getting in the mail and help you make informed decisions. Doug Kerr has lived in Encinitas for 28 years, is a Board member of the Encinitas Rotary Club and a member of the Senior Network of Associated Professionals (SNAP). He regularly gives educational Medicare update presentations to groups.
Mind over tummy ‘A safer way to look and feel years younger’ Don’t let burning pain and neuropathy irritate you and steal your fun with others.
Could this be your solution to neuropathy, numbness or burning pain? Do you have any of the following symptoms? Pins and needles feeling? Numbness in the hands or feet? Tingling or burning sensations? Weakness in the arms or legs? Sharp shooting or burning pains? If so, you may have a condition called Peripheral Neuropathy. Numbness, tingling, and pain are an extremely annoying problem. It may come and go... interrupt your sleep...and even make your arms or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine. More Drugs Are Not The Solution. A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure me-
diations, and anti-depressants — all of which can have serious side effects. My name is Dr. Jeff Listiak. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than seven years. Neuropathy can be caused by Diabetes, Chemotherapy, Toxins, etc. It may also be compounded by poor posture or a degenerating spine stressing the nerves. The good news is that NeuropathyDR™ combination treatments have proven effective in helping patients with these health problems. Here’s what one of my patients had to say: “I had been feeling very sharp pains in my feet… they just felt like they were on fire. I just couldn’t stand it… every night for the last year or two. I’m so excited today to tell Dr. Jeff that four days in a row I have felt no pain whatsoever.” — Marilyn You could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating and life-disrupting problems. Don’t
Miss This Limited Time Offer. It’s time for you to find out if NeuropathyDR™ treatment protocols could be your neuropathy solution. For the next 14 days only, $20 will get you a complete NeuropathyDR™ Analysis that I normally charge $197 for! What does this offer include? Everything. • An in-depth discussion about your health and wellbeing where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A posture, spine, range of motion, and nerve function examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays (if necessary) to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms. • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain and numbness free. • And, if after the thorough analysis we feel we can’t help you, we’ll tell you that right away. Until April 4th, 2014
you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $20. So, you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Call (760) 230-2949 now. We can get you scheduled for your NeuropathyDR™ Analysis as long as there is an opening before April 4th. Our office is located just off Interstate 5 and Encinitas Boulevard.

Would you like to have a flatter low tummy? Would you like to look more beautiful and take your workouts to the next level without spending hours in the gym? Have you ‘literally’ lost control of your bladder? Do you experience back, knee or hip pain? After working as a fitness and pilates professional for the last 30 years I thought I knew ‘everything’ about the core. Then I met Dr. Theresa Nesbitt. A Chicago based OBGYN turned Wellness Doctor, Family Health Coach, and Author. After mentoring privately with her for the last 5 years, I realized that my experience as fitness trainer was just scratching the surface of core function. My head was spinning when she said, “The true core you can not train; you facilitate.” “We train the unconscious movement. “It’s like an inner corset, we just have to allow it to start working again.” The ‘inner corset’ is responsible for a flatter tummy, stronger bladder, more balance and increased sexuality as it regulates all your systems. When you were just a baby your arms and legs didn’t have strength. The ‘inner corset’ is what enabled you to hold up your heavy head. From that foundation, we gained mobility, continence and we started walking. Injury and childbirth impair the inner corset, forcing the outer core to compensate leading to many misdiagnosed symptoms. This trademarked system uses guided imagery and awareness techniques that literally strengthen the inner core which includes the ‘innermost’ layer of the pelvicfloor. “It’s not about kegels,” movements are even more subtle making them seem almost “magical” and suitable for those with chronic pain. These workshops are tailored for women under age 65, but anyone can benefit. The next workshop is April 12 in Carlsbad $30. Space is limited.

Food &Wine California wines on the road less traveled taste of wine frank mangio Between the California coastal city of Lompoc and the town of Buellton, just west of the 101, lies 30,700 square acres of the Sta. Rita Hills. This pristine, peaceful land is located in Santa Barbara County and is part of the Santa Ynez Valley AVA (American Viticulture Area).
The Pacific Ocean’s cooling influence helps Central Coastal California’s Sta. Rita Hills produce some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the state. Photo courtesy of Sta. Rita Hills Wine Growers Alliance
Its history as Sta. Rita Hills AVA dates back only to 2005, but Franciscan missionaries were planting there as early as 1787. Today, some 2,900 acres are planted with wine grapes
in rocky soil where coastal fog fills the valley and hills, intensifying a cool-climate influence — what’s needed for quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Pinot makes up about 78 percent of the vines in the area. Natural acidity, balanced with firm structure, is a common thread in the wines throughout the region where some 60 vineyards and wineries have been established. My sources for this article included two enthusiastic disciples of the Sta. Rita Hills wine country. Joshua Orr is the in-house sommelier and bar manager at Marina Kitchen, in the Marriott Marquis and Marina in downtown San Diego. In my conversations with him about wines with unique characteristics, his passion for Sta. Rita Hills poured out, and he revealed plans for an afternoon wine tasting of the region and a barbecue dinner to follow March 30. The consumer tasting will start at 3 p.m., with the barbecue at 5:30 p.m. That caught my attention, so I called the other disciple, Barbara Satterfield, who is the executive director of the Sta.

Food &Wine Plate guide A Lick the
to the Taste of Leucadia L
eucadia continues to grow as a destination for culinary enthusiasts and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taste of Leucadia, happening April 3 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. is a direct reflection of that.Â ew restaurants, coffee shops and juice bars continue to pop up and attending the Taste is a perfect way to sample whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new on the Leucadia dining and drinking scene. The Taste includes 18 restaurants and eight local craft beer and wine sip stops along with live music at six locations and even live poetry in the park. That sounds like a perfect evening out so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to present a guide to navigating this very cool event. Easy parking is available at the Encinitas City Hall parking lot and a free shuttle is running so if you do need to drive to the event, parking will not be an issue. The Taste stretches 1.5 miles from Bull Taco on the South end to Fish 101 on the North side. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an easy walk to cover during the 5:30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 8:30 duration of the event then just hop on the shuttle back. With that, here is my unofficial Lick the Plate guide to the Taste of Leucadia. As mentioned, the new Bull Taco should be your first stopâ&#x20AC;Śitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not open as of this writing, but based on everything else they have done, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking this is going to be worthy as well. HapiFish should be a lively stop as they always have a fun crowd and amazing sushi. Captain Kenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is next and always has a huge spread of comfort foodâ&#x20AC;Śand if you have not been to Kenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much embodies funky Leucadia. My beloved Juanitaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a short stroll up 101 and last year they had killer street tacos set up out on the sidewalk. Sugar Coffee & Tea and Fully Loaded Micro Juicery are new to the Taste this year and the feedback from my coffee and juicing
enthusiasts is that they are great additions to the local scene. LTP will be checking them out soon. The iconic Pannikin is next along the route and really needs no explanation. The question is, will they be sampling sweet or savory items? The newly remodeled Vigilucciâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will be giving a sample preview of their menu at their soon-to-open new locationÂ where Robbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roadhouse was. Priority Public House is another new addition to the Taste this year and is your next stop along the route. La Especial Norte, famous for their soup is another participating restaurant representing the old guard. Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza wraps up the South of Leucadia Boulevard portion of the Taste and should not be missed. The Leucadia Roadside Park is located at the center of the Taste route and home to the bike corral where you can park your bike and head either north or south. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the location for the live poetry, a Leucadia touch for sure. First up on the north of Leucadia Boulevard portion of the taste is CafĂŠ Ipe, home to Revolution Roasters and some very tasty treats. Just north of that, Foodie Amore is sure to be sampling some

Sailors train with new life support system CAMP PENDLETON — Corpsmen are charged with providing critical medical care to patients in life threatening situations during transport to higher echelons of medical care. To ensure the best medical care possible, they have identified the need for a better life support system. Sailors with 1st Medical Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, trained for the first time with the new Portable Patient Transport Life Support System aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014. PPTLSS was designed as a lightweight, mobile replacement for the current, bulky, life-support systems used for serious injuries. More than 200 pounds together, older systems include the ventilator, physiological monitor, suction device, oxygen tanks and a platform to mount the equipment and secure it to the litter. With the PPTLSS a single person can carry the 55 pound system. “It totally revolutionizes the whole concept of patient transport,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Nicole Mattera, an en-route care corpsman with Bravo Surgical Company, 1st Medical Bn. “The old system, the (Special Medical Emergency Evacuation Device), was only built to carry the same supplies we usually use, but it was considered bulky, inconvenient and sometimes a little bit tricky. This new system is an all in one machine.”

highly efficient components Navy personnel need to evacuate wounded Marines and sailors from the battlefield. The training, coordinated by the Combat Support Systems Program Management Office of Marine Corps Systems Command, has undergone more than seven years of testing, said Mattera, of Chicago. The durability and the way it handles in-flight were tested to ensure it meets the needs of medical teams in deployed environments. “It’s going to, mainly, The system provides help the patient,” said Pet-

To hook up a patient the old way took too much time, too many cords and too many things could go wrong. This could cause confusion and loss of time, which equals loss of life down the line. So I think it benefits us, and the patient, by helping us get that patient to the next echelon of care as soon as possible.” The first day of training consisted of classes about the components and

operation of the equipment, while the second day covered the upkeep and maintenance of the equipment. Users say the PPTLSS is easier to use and move during the most crucial times for a casualty after receiving a serious injury. It can easily be transferred from the ground, to a vehicle, to an aircraft and provide monitoring and support for several hours. Another crucial aspect is its ability to produce its own oxygen. “The best feature I find for the new system is the fact that it produces its own oxygen,” said Mattera. “We do have our own, but they are four feet tall, they take time to transport and you can’t carry it with you. With this system you don’t have to worry about carrying 12 bottles of oxygen with you and can reduce the number to four in the chance of a PPTLSS malfunction. The system alone can develop enough oxygen to keep that person alive for as long as necessary.” The corpsmen working with the system agree it is going to help the future of medical care in the military. “I’m really excited to be able to use the system,” added Mattera. “I can already see how effective it can be. I see it making a complete change in regards to field medicine.”

So it was actually a little harder on them this time.” This quarter was unique in that each of the four qualifying teams were required to design the menu where both entrees and the two additional dishes are all tied together in a theme chosen by each team.

entire community, absent public discussion about that sacrifice,” Gaspar said. “The offer being made strays far from the appraised value.” More than a month ago, councilmembers said the property wasn’t worth $9.5 million, citing two appraisals of the property under the current zoning, one for $3.3 million and the other for $7.3 million. EUSD believes the property could be rezoned for housing, upping its worth to at least $9.5 million. Along with asking a minimum of $9.5 million from the city, EUSD stipulated in its letter that should the city purchase the property, it must remain public land and can’t be rezoned or sold. Before moving to closed session, councilmembers described the condition as odd since it wasn’t imposed on bidders taking part in the March 25 auction. EUSD Superintendent Tim Baird said on Monday the requirement was added because the city could theoretically purchase the property for $9.5 million, rezone the land to increase the val-
RANCHO SANTA FE – There was no shortage of leopard print, pumps and fedoras – as well as club covers that included everything from Rocky and Bullwinkle’s Natasha to a cactus and a giraffe -- when the Real Housewives of Morgan Run hit the links on March 18 for fun and philanthropy.

auction, welcomed the news of the city’s offer after the meeting. “The mayor has a halfsmile playing upon her face, so I might be able to interpret that as an offer that the district might actually entertain,” Chatfield said. Last fall, the city began exploring buying the 2.8acre site, with the goal of putting an arts or community center there. During Wednesday night’s council meeting, residents urged the city to put together an offer to preserve the historic property. “When this opportunity is gone, it’s gone, and it won’t return,” Tricia Smith said. Deputy Mayor Mark Muir and Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar voted against putting forward a proposal to buy Pacific View. Gaspar said Pacific View is a property like no other, but the council majority wants to pay too much for it. “The offer comes with considerable sacrifice to our
ue and then sell it. “If we’re going to sell it to you for what we think is a low price for this property, then make that guarantee that it’s going to be public land,” Baird said. Last week, residents packed into a school board meeting to halt the auction. After they also showed up at a council meeting the next night, council members agreed to draft the letter requesting alternatives to an auction. In that letter, the city asked if EUSD is open to a joint-use agreement to develop an arts center on the land. But EUSD isn’t looking for a joint-use agreement with the city; the district isn’t interested in running an arts center or another community facility at the site, Baird said. “We already have arts facilities, and (funds) from the sale of the property could go toward supporting those,” he said. If the board of trustees declines the city’s offer, the district will open sealed bids during the March 25 auction.
Baird said he isn’t sure how many bids EUSD has received so far, adding that sealed bids typically come in the day of an auction. Bidders can submit cash offers under the current zoning, which allows for everything from an arts center to a medical complex. EUSD is also taking bids that call for housing and mixed-use development on the property. Should the auction happen, if cash bids for the current zoning reach $12 million, only those offers will be considered, even if rezone bids are higher. Otherwise, the highest bid would win the auction. John S. Pitcher deeded the 2.8-acre property to the district in 1883. At that time, Encinitas’ original schoolhouse was built on the site, and after being moved, returned to the property about 30 years ago. Pacific View Elementary was built in 1953, yet closed in 2003 due to declining enrollment. Since then, a variety of proposals for the property have failed to win approval.

Julia Gorman, Susan Smith, Fran McClure and Sue Lyerly won best flight. Awards were also presented in other categories, including closest to the pin and Fashion Divas of the Day. The top raffle prize was a $300 TaylorMade Driver. The post-game lunch included chicken marsala, “flown in from the farms of Foster,” and crème brulee, with “berries confiscated
from the backyards of New Jersey.” The event also raised $300 for Operation Game On, a program founded by Perez that provides free golf lessons, equipment and playing opportunities for combat-injured soldiers. “It turned out so good,” Horvitz said. “Everything was perfect and everyone had a great time.” Horvitz said she isn’t sure if this would become an annual event. “We might not be asked to do this again,” she said. “And it’s a lot of work.” While the housewives may not return to Morgan Run, “Duck Dynasty” characters may invade next time, she said.

Solomon said she is not looking forward to road changes that will require customers to reverse angle park.

Parks sided with Sinnott and Corti because she said skipping this step could weaken their support for the site. ing renovations to prepare for the opening of Mission Ave Bar and Grill have moved forward. The new business on the 700 block of Mission Avenue is expected to open while work on the street and sidewalk is still in progress, possibly right outside the business’ front door. Accommodations have been made to ensure customer access during construction. “Two guys are opening a bar and grill on Mission Avenue,” Jones said. “Construction will be right in front of the new store. They’re real positive with it.” Business owners said the contractor has been very receptive to business concerns. The city and contractor have kept businesses informed of the project timeline, and discussed next steps at MainStreet Oceanside monthly meetings. Jones said rapport has improved as businesses gain understanding of the process and business concerns have been addressed. “We managed the project with business owners in mind and have taken into account their ideas and feedback.” Business owners who attended the last MainStreet meeting said they are pleased with the way the contractor and city have moved through process. During the project additional traffic and pedestrian access signage has been added, a private parking lot was open to the public, and safety fencing was lowered and lit for greater visibility. Starting April 1 improvements will continue on the south side of the street. Work includes putting in a new traffic light and conduits on Coast Highway 101. “We have a lot of work to do still,” Mertz said. Completion on the roadwork and landscaping is expected by June 19.

Kerins agreed. “It’s a very serious subject,” he said. “You have to use prudence and common sense and discretion in how you enforce” the no-smoking policy, he said. There are additional challenges to policing the post-race concerts, compared to those held during the fair, Fennell and Kerins said. The race concert venue has festival seating and the concerts are free, with attendance ranging from a few thousand to 16,000, depending on the band.

When it was discovered he was taking photographs it was objected to at first, but after a while he was allowed to continue. Research also uncovered unexpected heroes. Oden said he is finishing up a two-and-a-half year process of interviewing people who faced incareration, or were pivotally involved in raising awareness about the injustice of American internment camps. Interviews conducted so far include a man born in Manzanar, who relocated to Japan with his family, and was drafted into the U.S. military years later during the Vietnam War while still

Fennell said smoking is permitted during the races. “You create an area where they can’t smoke right next door,” he said. “We need to review that a little bit. … That can create challenges on its own.” Kerins said statistics show the fairgrounds is a safe venue. Total attendance during the race meets from 2010 to 2013 was about 2.7 million. The Sheriff’s Department recorded 203 arrests, most of which were misdemeanors such as alcohol-related violations, battery, theft and domestic violence. According to the sheriff’s log, there were two
contacts in 2012 for smoking violations. Prior to the 2014 season, there are plans to study the race concert venue to establish an environment more conducive to managing the crowd. The review will factor in the four elements in every crowd situation: time, space, information and energy. There will also be staff briefings, a re-evaluation of signage and a dedicated team of security to focus on the smoking issue. More announcements will be made, including from the stage, reminding visitors of the no-smoking policy during the concerts.
take control of their education. Parents suggested that the district bolster internship opportunities for students so they can get a taste of future careers. They also emphasized a need for teachers to develop connections with their students, so kids have a positive association with school. Sarah Anderson, a reading intervention specialist at Calavera Hills Elementary School, said a large part of that relies on lowering class sizes. “I would absolutely put (lower class sizes) as number one,” she said.
The district is also collecting input via online surveys and meetings with advisory groups. The district is hosting a second town hall forum March 25 at 6:30 p.m. at Valley Middle School. Lovely explained that staff would take all of the statements received and identify common interests and themes. These interests will be compared to CUSD’s existing programs, services and resources. Staff will then determine if the district needs to develop any additional programs or services for the 2014-15 school year to meet the community’s priorities.
living in Japan. The man went on to serve in the U.S. military and earn a medal of valor. Oden said a stirring fact in his research was that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia recently spoke to a group of college students and said it could happen again. “In war, laws go out the window,” Oden said, paraphrasing the judge. Oden said he hopes to arrange interviews with U.S. representatives who spoke up for Arab Americans following 9/11, and explore the possibility of history repeating itself. Interviews are expected to be completed this year. The next step is film editing which should be completed by fall. Oden said he plans to enter the documentary film in several film festivals next spring. He has not determined
which festival the documentary will premiere in, but has the Santa Barbara, Newport Beach and Sundance film festivals in mind to enter. “A greater knowledge by more Americans of this time in history is our society’s best protection from similar injustices happening in the future,” Oden said. He added that down the road he would like to see the documentary aired as a three-part series on KPBS and be used as an educational tool in civic classes. “I hope it has a national audience. “We’re not just retelling a story that has already been told. We’re digging into the past as it relates to what’s going on in the world today.” “Three Lenses” was awarded the AbelCine Documentary Grant in October to help fund production.
tween the departments and city before issuing the grant, she added. But that’s in the past, Greene added. She said with new leadership in place at the city and the local state parks’ office, they’ve established stronger ties. Beacon’s, located in Leucadia, is operated by the city through a 20year agreement with state parks. “We have a lot of common interests and projects that we’re working together on,” Greene said. “It’s urgent to me that the bluff doesn’t fail again.” Now, Greene said local parks officials are supportive of a seawall at Beacon’s, if the city chooses to go that route. Local representatives would have to gain approval from parks officials in Sacramento to amend the Beacon’s general plan to permit a seawall. An amendment could cost the city as much as $100,000. Yet another drawback: the California Coastal Commission would have to sign off on a new seawall. The coastal commission, which has generally opposed new seawalls, has stated the barriers are unsightly and contribute to beach erosion. Due to the potential of hitting coastal commission resistance, Rudloff

They want it to be in this property that you own in full. “Why do you want to go look up at all these other issues that have been considered and rejected?” Winterer asked. “Whenever you delay this project
noted the city is also consulting with engineers to see if seawall alternatives like fiberglass nails and soil cement could reinforce the bluff. Soil cement can be engineered to erode at the same rate as the sandstone bluff, and it’s less likely to choke off the natural sand supply. For that reason, it might satisfy the coastal commission, along with environmental groups
whether Surfrider would support it. Recently, the coastal commission didn’t rule out a seawall or another alternative, only stating it favors the “least structural option,” according to Rudloff.

that are also concerned with seawalls. What’s more, soil cement likely wouldn’t require a general plan amendment. Rudloff said she hopes to avoid a costly seawall, but more research is necessary on the costs of the alternatives and if they could stabilize the bluff well into the future. San Diego Surfrider has long fought against an amendment to allow a seawall at Beacon’s. Julie Chunn-Heer, the group’s policy manager, said soil cement is a new concept that she would need to look into further before commenting on
Beacon’s, said a reinforcement solution can’t come soon enough. “Beacon’s is a tremendously important access point for our city from an economic perspective,” Marvin said. “You have tons of Leucadia businesses that get customers from people going to and from the beach. “A bluff failure could close the beach for quite a while,” he added. “That hurts.” And if people were sitting on the beach during a bluff collapse, there’s a strong chance someone gets hurt or killed, he said. “It would be a disaster,” Marvin said.

Consistent with the provisions of State Assembly Bill 2280 (Saldana), the proposed amendments achieve the following: 1. Require the city to grant a concession or incentive requested by developers of residential housing projects unless the city makes a written ﬁnding, based upon substantial evidence, that among other things, the concession or incentive would be contrary to state or federal law. 2. Delete a previous requirement that developers requesting a concession or reduction of development standards show that the waiver or modiﬁcation is necessary to make the proposed housing units economically feasible. 3. Require, as a condition for the granting of a density bonus to a developer in exchange for donating land to the city for very low income housing, that the city identify a source of funding for the very low income units. The proposed amendments also make various technical conforming changes to reﬂect revision and recodiﬁcation of the Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act. These amendments to the Zoning Ordinance include non-substantive changes to correctly reference and use language and terms consistent with State Assembly Bill 806 (Torres). The proposed amendments to the Zoning Ordinance include a revision to eliminate the requirement that affordable dwelling units that qualify for a density bonus are in addition to, and do not count toward satisfying the city’s inclusionary housing requirements.

BREWER, City Attorney MATT HALL, Mayor ATTEST: SHELLEY COLLINS, Assistant City Clerk (SEAL) 03/21/14 CN 15998 Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located and more than three months have elapsed since such recordation. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive
clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether

VOTED “BEST BREAKFAST” THE ORIG INA L
And few are surprised. But when Davis hits the tape these days she has a companion: perspective. While chasing her goals when younger, there was little else that mattered. Now she competes with thoughts of her family, her training partners, her coaching clients and those perched on the YMCA stationary bikes awaiting her commands each Monday morning. “We love to hear about her accomplishments,’’ said Eric Lodge, among those sweating during Davis’ 90-minute class. “We’re living vicariously through her.’’ Through the ceiling into the YMCA weight room comes Davis’ voice as she motivates her charges to find another gear. “That stems from me being a triathlete,’’ Davis said. “I like to push the envelope and I think people that come to my class expect that and want that. Everyone in it is a type ‘A’ personality and loves to work hard.’’ But with the beads of perspiration comes pearls from Davis. Instead of just turning wheels, Davis turns over the riders’ imaginations. She evokes images of conquering the Torrey Pines State Reserve summit or climbing the hills of San Elijo. Then there’s her make-believe trek to Ramona, where the payout is a given when the route goes through Julian. “Some pie,’’ Davis said. No matter how you slice it, Davis’ YMCA classes are to die for. If you can survive. “The 30 or so bikes are always filled up,’’ Lodge said “She’s pretty tough.’’ And that’s no spin.

‘Bee’-ing careful North County beekeeper working to make feral beehives more docile By Tony Cagala
REGION — Quentin Alexander is a registered beekeeper. For four years now he’s been helping to remove aggressive beehives from around the county and, as of two years ago, he started his own company Hive Savers. If that wasn’t an interesting enough profession, Alexander, who’s also a certified firefighter/EMS, is working to make the aggressive hives he removes safer. Without the use of any chemicals, Alexander captures the beehives, whether they’re outside or in people’s attics, and then takes them to what he calls “bee clinics” around the county. At one of the bee clinics in Rancho San Diego he puts the hives through a process described as “re-queening.” That’s a process of removing the aggressive queen bee from the hive and replacing it with a more docile Italian queen bee, which he imports from Hawaii. It’s a breeding process that takes anywhere from six to eight weeks, where the aggressive Africanized bee traits are replaced with a new generation of bees that are calmer and less aggressive. Alexander said he’s always had an interest in bees, but it wasn’t until he helped a neighbor to rescue a hive from a utility water box in one of the local water district areas, that his interests really peaked. “I just really loved it,” he said. During his most recent removal of a hive in the Olivenhain Colony, Alexander encountered some Africanized bees. “It can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing,” Alexander said. “Handling Africanized bees takes a lot of precaution.” “You can mainly judge by the behavior, but that’s not always a sure thing either,” Alexander said. “Africanized hives can appear to be very calm…but if it got hit down with a beam…and it’s an Africanized hive, then you’re going

to have a scene on your hands.” Whenever you have bees in your structure, he said, you should always have them removed. Alexander said it’s hard to tell, without verification from a laboratory, what specimen of bee is in somebody’s yard. Dr. James Nieh at UCSD’s Nieh Lab is researching bees, looking at the evolution of communication in social bees and other factors that affect honeybee health. Nieh said that taking a feral swarm of bees and re-queening them is a fairly standard practice, not necessarily for making an Africanized hive more docile, he added, but when the queen has undesirable traits. “It is a tricky procedure,” he said. “Very often these colonies will reject the European queens and so it requires a lot of persistence to actually get it to work.” In some of the cases, Nieh explained, the colony ends up killing the introduced queen. It could take a few attempts, which can end up costing a lot of money. About 70 percent of the bees seen in the county are Africanized, said Nieh.

5 things you ought to know about spring allergies
SOLARRIS CHEAPER THANNTHE UTILITY
Oceanside Solar Luncheon
WHEN: Saturday, March 22nd | 11am-12pm WHERE: Oceanside Public Library 330 N. Coast Hwy. Oceanside, CA 92054
(BPT) — April’s showers bring May flowers but they also bring on sneezing, runny noses and watery eyes for some of the 50 million Americans with allergies. The spring allergy season begins in some regions of the country as early as February and can last into the summer months. The most common spring allergy culprits are pollens from a variety of trees and grasses, as well as mold, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). “Because there can be millions of pollen particles and mold spores in the air, finding allergy relief can seem nearly impossible for some,” says allergist Dr. Michael Foggs, ACAAI president. “But by knowing what triggers your allergy symptoms and how to avoid these allergens, you can be on your way to a sneeze-free season.” Knowing more about the spring allergy season can also help you fight symptoms. ACAAI allergists have put together the five things you should know about spring allergies. • Allergies are on the rise — Every year more adults and children are diagnosed with allergies. There are several speculations about this increase, including climate changes and increased allergy awareness. Studies have also shown pollen counts are gradually increasing. Even if you’ve never had allergies in the past, you can develop them at any time. That lingering cold may be allergies and you should see your local board-certified allergist for testing and treatment. • It matters when you medicate — If you fall victim to spring allergies annually, you should begin taking your medication two weeks before symptoms typically begin. Keep an eye on the pollen counts in your area. Even if the temperature doesn’t feel like spring, there could already be pollen circulating in the air. To be better prepared,
you can track your symptoms with MyNasalAllergyJournal.org. • There isn’t a cure, but there is something close — Unfortunately, there is no cure for spring allergies. However, immunotherapy (allergy shots) provides symptom relief while modifying and preventing disease progression. Immunotherapy can also be tailored for an individual’s needs. So if you’re allergic to pollens, dust and pets, allergy shots can provide you with relief from these allergens. • Symptoms can be severe — Runny noses, itchy eyes and sneezing aren’t the only symptoms of spring allergies. If you are coughing, wheezing and have trouble breathing, asthma might be one of your allergy symptoms. In fact, an estimated 75-85 percent of asthma sufferers have at least one allergy. Asthma attacks can be life-threatening. Aside from avoiding allergens, you should also be under the regular care of an allergist and use medications as prescribed. • When in doubt, get checked out — Not every cough is due to a respiratory infection. And colds shouldn’t be blamed for every runny nose. If you find yourself battling unwanted symptoms for more than two weeks, it is likely time to see an allergist to get tested, diagnosed and treated. Allergies and asthma are serious diseases and that’s “nothing to sneeze at.” Misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment can be dangerous.

To avoid encounters with rattlesnakes, the Department of Animal Services suggests these steps: stur• Wear dy hiking boots with ankle support so that your feet are protected. • Stay on paths and trails. Avoid tall grass, weeds and brush where snakes may hide. • Keep your dog on leash while hiking and be aware of what your dog is doing at all times.
The county’s Department of Animal Services is receiving triple the amount of calls this year for rattlesnake removals than they did during the same time last year. Photo courtesy of the
County of San Diego
County sees rattlesnake calls triple over last year By Tony Cagala
REGION — Calls into the county’s DAS (Department of Animal Services), for rattlesnake removals have more than tripled this year when compared to the same time frame from last year. As of March 14, DAS had received 82 calls, explained DAS Deputy Director Dan DeSousa. The majority of the calls have been coming from the more inland areas of North County, he added. Eleven of the calls came from the 92129 zip code, the Rancho Penasquitos area. There were three calls that
came from the 92009 area of Carlsbad, DeSousa said. Despite the numbers, DeSousa said rattlesnakes can be found all the way to the water’s edge. “It’s just that area’s been developed a lot more than some of these other areas,” DeSousa said. According to DAS Director Dawn Danielson, though spring is typically the time of year rattlesnakes emerge from hibernation, the snakes are being drawn out a little earlier this year because of the mild winter and the several heat spells experienced in the county.
During the late afternoon is when most of the snakes will come out to do hunting, just before it gets dark, DeSousa explained. “They’ve probably been in the shade during the hot part of the day. Early morning is when they’re going to come out and sun themselves,” he added. Animal Services is recommending homeowners to clear away old wood piles and garbage heaps, to avoid any hiding opportunities for the rattlesnakes. DAS provides services to Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, San Diego, Santee and Solana Beach
and unincorporated areas. If you see a rattlesnake, they ask that you keep an eye on it from a safe distance and call (619) 236-2341. When DAS arrives and captures the snake, they try not to take it farther than a mile away from where they were found, explained DeSousa. The reason for that, he added, was because if they were taken more than a mile from their home range, you’re basically condemning them to death. The snakes wouldn’t know where the food sources or den sources are.
• Make sure you can see where you are reaching and that you can see ahead of you. Look for concealed snakes before picking up rocks, sticks or wood. • C o n s i d e r bringing a walking stick while hiking. If you encounter a snake it may strike the stick instead of you or your pet. • Give rattlesnakes the right-ofway. If you live in an area where rattlesnakes have been found, check your yard before letting your pets and children out to play.

Prefab Granite Depot offers more selection for your budget At Prefab Granite Depot, it doesn’t matter what your ZIP code is or the size of your budget. They offer the same pricing and selection to every client, and their goal is to make sure clients see all options to get a fair price for every kitchen or bath remodeling project. Other outlets that provide custom solid wood cabinets and granite or marble countertops often take advantage of homes in highend neighborhoods- most won’t even give you a price without coming out to the job site. Once they discover they are dealing with an individual who lives in the best part of town, these dealers are prone to raise their prices in an effort to get as much money from the job as possible. But at Prefab Granite Depot, all they need are the rough dimensions of the area to be remodeled and they will give clients an estimate without even asking where they live. Project size is not important- clients will get the same level of expertise and attention whether you are looking for a new bathroom vanity top or re-
modeling your entire kitchen. Prefab Granite Depot’s multiple locations make it especially easy for North County shoppers, with showrooms in both Oceanside, at 3910 Vista Way, # 117 and at 8400 Miramar Road, San Diego. The showroom hours are Mondays through Fridays 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact them at (760) 806-1188 or (858) 831-9363. Once you walk through the showroom doors, sales staff and design consultants are at hand to provide you with a great selection of everything from solid wood cabinetry in a variety of styles and finishes, granite and marble countertops, to specialty tile installations for those clients wanting something truly unique. At both showrooms, full-size kitchen mock-ups will spark your creativity and showcase a host of options for all budgets. The staff can walk you through the entire process of a remodeling project, and the in-house designers can create a 3D-design layout

that gives you a clear understanding of what you want and how your choices will blend with your home. Former clients praise Prefab Granite Depot installers for caring more about the quality of their work then racing on to the next job. Satisfied clients describe the depot craftsmen with words like “thorough” and “meticulous.” The crews earn kudos for installing cabinets “as if it were their own kitchen,” and for prompt installation and spotless clean-up. Prefab Granite Depot designers also get regular raves for the accuracy of the
estimation process. Prefab Granite Depot is one of the largest granite and cabinet businesses in San Diego County. It imports granite and cabinets from countries all around the world, such as Brazil, Canada, India, Italy, and more. At the showroom, you may have a little trouble making a final choice from among the selection of more than 50 exotic granite colors and many styles of solid wood cabinets- not cheap particle board. With such a broad selection, clients can find whatever they want for new
kitchens and bathrooms, with additional options for fireplaces and outdoor barbecues for those looking for outdoor entertaining options suitable for the Southern California lifestyle. With all these choices at your fingertips, it is clear that Prefab Granite Depot is the perfect place to create that personalized statement for your home or business. In addition, Prefab Granite Depot clients can count on a fast turnaround time and top quality materials; and working with Prefab Granite Depot’s helpful staff can take a great deal of the hassle and stress out of
creating your dream living or working environment. At their website, prefabgranitedepot.com, you can get to know the company and review useful preparation information for your remodeling projects such as “Helpful Tips to Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets,” “Execute the Best Solutions for Bathroom Remodeling” or “Change your Lifestyle by Kitchen Renovation.” Visit them in person at either of the Oceanside or Miramar locations, or online at prefabgranitedepot.com, and learn how rewarding a new living space can be.

Could it really be possible for kids to like whole grains? (BPT) — We know. Whole grains are good for us, offering fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. But can they really be tasty enough for our kids to enjoy? And how do we add them to more of our meals? The answers may be as close as your nearest elementary, middle or high school. Schools across the country are introducing whole grain breads, pastas, rice, pizzas and tortillas. Starting July 1, 2014, all of the grain-based offerings in the lunch line will be at least 51 percent whole grain. Anthony Geraci, director of Nutrition Services at Shelby County Schools near Memphis, Tenn., oversees one of the country’s largest school districts, serving more than 155,000 students in 270 schools. In 2012, he proactively anticipated the USDA’s new school meal requirements and changed all of the district’s grain offerings to whole grains. Now, breads and muffins are baked fresh from scratch. Simultaneously, Geraci established a mandate of customer service, focusing full attention on serving the district’s daily student customers. One of the most successful ways Geraci and his team have introduced new, healthy items is the “no thank you bites.” “Trying something new can be a bit unsettling to kids,” says
tomatoes. To add whole grains to your home menus, Moores suggests teamwork. “Kids are naturally curious about food, they’re interested in being in the kitchen and in learning how to cook. Leverage that and the fun when everyone is trying a food for the first time.” To amp up the flavor of grains, cook them in broth or juice, and make a pilaf with chopped onions, adding chopped vegetables, corn or even dried fruit. Finish with season-
Geraci. “We decided to ask our youngest customers to choose whether or not to try a new, healthy item by offering it to them in a small sample cup. If they choose not to try it, they simply say ‘no thank you,’ and move on. But if they do try the item, they receive a star sticker and are invited to a monthly ‘constellation party for the stars.’ We’ve

Heat the oil in heavygauge medium pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until tender and translucent, 5-6 minutes. Add the rice and saute over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until aromatic and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the stock, bay leaf and thyme sprig to the rice and bring to a simmer, stirring to prevent the rice from clumping together or sticking to the bottom of the pot. Cover the pot and cook in a 350 F. oven until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid, about 30 minutes. Remove the rice from the oven, and allow it to rest, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover, and use a fork to fluff the rice, remove the bay leaf and thyme sprig, and set aside in a warm spot. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve on a warm plate.
found this to be a fun way to test new items as well as get feedback on our new offerings.” Schools are offering kid-friendly favorites like pizza and stir fry with brown rice that fit into their whole grain-rich menus. For example, the new Big Daddy’s(R) Primo Four Cheese Pizza has a 51 percent whole grain crust and a slice is only 360 calories. It’s a great solution for familiar taste and nutrient-rich offerings. You can easily carry whole grain “goodness” into your own kitchen too. Consider whole grains your blank canvas, says Susan Moores, a Twin Cities-based dietitian. “They’re a great starting
point for creating delicious meals that are incredibly beneficial to your and your kids’ health.” According to Moores, whole grains are the type of carbohydrates your body wants. “Whole-grain carbohydrates are an excellent source of energy for the brain,” she says. That’s important for kids at school. Plus, studies show whole grains contain their own, unique set of phytonutrients, which can rival the phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables. Phytonutrients are substances found in plant foods that research strongly suggest promote good health &hellip; think resveratrol in grapes and lycopene in

It might take time to make the change, but stay the course. “The rule of thumb: it can take 10 to 12 introductions to a new food before a child chooses to give it a go,” Moores says. “Whole grains taste best with the company they keep. Partner them with favorite foods and ingredients to make them a sure win on two fronts: taste and health.”

Nature Designs Landscaping — Providing a higher level of service Nature Designs provides residential landscape management services for environmentally responsible San Diego homeowners interested in adding high-quality amenities and natural beauty to their property. Nature Designs has been improving San Diego County landscapes for more than 30 years by providing responsible design practices, quality construction, design-centered garden maintenance and estate services. “We probably have a higher percentage of licensed, educated, and certified employees than any other landscape contractor in the county,” said owner, Steve Jacobs. “We attract homeowners who have high expectations for quality and professional landscape management; typically, not a first-time buyer.” Many homeowners know from experience that improving their property can be a complex process of coordinating design details, submitting to their homeowner association, obtaining building permits, and adhering to budgets. This process requires skilled management and communication at each stage
Nature Designs Landscaping has been improving San Diego County landscapes for more than 30 years.
of development. Nature Designs handles them seamlessly. When working with Nature Designs and their one point-of-contact business format, homeowners work directly with a team leader to coordinate details.
This format produces a cohesive process of design development, permits, inspections, and financial management to insure each client’s aesthetic and financial expectations are met. Landscape management is also important to ensure that each plant is properly cared for and will thrive during that vulnerable time after the initial installation. Many plants need extra attention, and homeowners often misunderstand the amount of care and water that are needed. Once established, skilled and regular maintenance of the plants and all landscape systems is important so that the original design intent is preserved, pests and diseases are responsibly monitored and treated, and drainage and irrigation systems are functioning at their optimum potential. “We provide design, construction, and maintenance services for a reason,” says Kelly Fore Dixon, Designer and Project Manager at Nature Designs. “Each stage is so important to the overall success of the landscape. Aside from the purchase of their home, our clients consider their landscape
improvements the second largest investment while improving the overall livability and value of their home. We take that very seriously.” “Owner Steve Jacobs was raised in a family of educators and conservationists, so he naturally understands what it means to use natural resources responsibly,” Dixon said. “That sentiment is also fostered within this company’s culture. We selectively hire team members who have this sensitivity. We are conscious of improving the home’s value and habitat and are acutely aware of impacting the surrounding environment. We think on a deeper level about the impact we are making. It’s more than just pretty plants to us.” Nature Designs isn’t just good at what they do — they are good for what they do, priding themselves in environmentally responsible landscape solutions. To learn more about their services, go to the Nature Designs website at NatureDesigns.net to understand how they can enrich your landscape aesthetically and environmentally, and then call them to discuss your project at (760) 945-4321 or email them at mail@NatureDesigns.net.
Stone countertops: Still a steadily increasing component of remodeling Stone countertops are a key element in both minor and major kitchen and bathroom remodels. More than 80 percent of homeowners throughout the country include them in their projects. This holds true in San Diego County, where thousands of homes continue to be built annually and older homes require updating. Due to the inherent beauty, durability, and practicality, industry professionals agree that the de-
mand for stone surfaces will steadily increase in future years. That’s why Randy Jacobs, owner of Amazonia Kitchen & Bath, started the Solana Beach-based fabrication and installation company nearly 15 years ago. “I noticed that the demand for stone countertops was increasing,” he said, “but there were few people who actually fabricated and installed the material. I saw a need and I filled it.” Jacobs was amongst the first to fab-
ricate granite for countertops in San Diego County. Stone countertops are brought to the homeowner through two separate components that are rarely offered by the same company: Retailers feature pieces in slab yards and sell the material and fabricator must then transport the slabs, create custom templates of spaces, cut the stone, polish it, add edge details, and install it. This is where Amazonia comes in. Jacobs, a San Diego
native and graduate of San Diego State University, combines a strong business sense with a love of natural stone. He’s not surprised by the growth of the industry over the last 15 years, but also cautions that not all fabricators are the same: “There are a lot of companies out there that are cutting and installing stone but not very many companies that understand how to do it in a way that really features the natural beauty of the product while still of-
fering a competitive price and being efficient with the customer’s time.” Amazonia is one of only a small percentage of fabricators that is certified to sell, fabricate, and install Silestone® and Caesarstone® surfaces. The company guarantees a 7-day turnaround from template to installation, offers a lifetime warranty, and keeps the business small enough that Jacobs can remain aware of what’s going on at every jobsite. Amazonia Kitchen &
Bath works with granite, quartzite, marble, travertine, limestone, and quartz Caesarstone, (Silestone, and other brands) and also specializes in tile floors, tile backsplashes, and stone and/or tile tub and shower surrounds. The company employs an ASID designer for customers who need assistance with selections and offers free in-home estimates. Visit amazonia.biz or call (760) 533-6656 for more information.

Green is still the new black: Spring trends in Eco Design Reclaimed, renewable, recycled… words that have become such a common part of our vernacular even young children know which can to toss their plastic bottles in. The latest trend in green design is upcycling. Have you heard about it? Like recycling, the goal of upcycling is to create products out of used unwanted materials that were otherwise destined for the landfill. But with upcycling the idea is to come up with something better than the original. Exciting modern design ideas are popping up everywhere. Corrugated cardboard? Fabulous light fixtures! Old pallets?
Unreal rocking bed! Old fencing? New dining table! This month as we look forward to Spring and Summer and outdoor entertaining think about what you can upcycle at home. Are you re-doing your fence? Turn that old battered wood in to a gorgeous reclaimed wall in your house. Or put the old wood up on Craigslist for some budding furniture maker to create with. Spruce up an outdoor wall with a gorgeous upcycled flower vase plaque! Who knew baby bottles could be so lovely? Turn old ketchup bottles in to bird feeders; old silverwear and cups in to a windchime; an old washing
machine in to a stylish fire pit for your backyard. For tons of creative ideas on what to upcycle from common items around your home, try upcyclethat. com/ or pinterest.com/ m i nd fu lproduct /upc ycling-ideas/ One of our favorite designers has taken upcyling to a whole new dreamy (and very modern) level. Taking old pallets and turning them in to furniture that rocks! Literally. This definitely isn’t your grandma’s rocking chair. Corrugated cardboard never looked so bright. And the bed. Well, rocking yourself to sleep never sounded so good.
Buyers at local artist gallery Bliss 101 in have spent the Winter procuring a whole new line of upcycled products like you’ve never seen before. The dreamy rocking bed and chairs have just arrived, go try them out! Their consultants are offering a free in-home de-
sign consultation through the month of April. For some inspirational ideas for your home and garden, stop on by and mention this Coast News article for a free consult. Bliss 101 is located in Pacific Station at 687 S. Coast Hwy 101, next to Whole Foods. Visit bliss101.com for more.

Bishop’s Tree Service branches passion with performance Brian Bishop’s passion for trees shows through clearer than any ray of sunlight breaking in between the leaves of the tallest of canopies. To him, trees are assets that improve our lives in so many different ways. In the more than 30 years that he’s lived in North County and operated Bishop’s Tree Service, his knowledge of the many varieties of trees and the services he provides has continued to grow. Knowing the physiology of the tree — whether it’s defected or diseased — even knowing what the purpose of that tree is, goes a long way in deciding what kind of service is needed. Sometimes, though, the trees don’t serve any purpose except that they’ve grown too large and have become liabilities. In those cases, he doesn’t shy away from telling the resident that it needs to come down. Even though the trees may come out on the losing end at times, Bishop still values the opportunity to improve the relationships between people, properties and trees. Sharing his amassed experience with the resident goes beyond what most other tree service providers will do. That also accounts for the high retention rates of his clientele, who know that he and his
well-trained crews are doing only what’s right and necessary for the overall health of the tree and their property. “I’m in the business because that’s what I love to do,” Bishop said. “I love working with trees, I like working people and I like solving problems.” Sixty percent of Bishop’s Tree Service comes from residential clients with a high referral rate, while the remaining 40 percent comes from commercial businesses. From tree trimming to shaping to large, technical tree removals, the staff of Bishop’s Tree Service, which also includes three certified arborists, ensures that whatever work is being done, will be done correctly. “A bad prune can kill the tree, or significantly shorten its life,” Bishop said. “With proper pruning, you can extend the pruning cycle so that you don’t have to be there as often,” he added.

Six hot home design trends for this spring (BPT) — Does the change of seasons have you itching to refresh a tired, lackluster room? Or maybe you’re looking for some small ways to make a big impact on your home’s style? Whatever the case, here are some of this season’s most buzzed-about trends and how you can incorporate them into your next project. • Wood is the new neutral. This season’s strong trend toward wood textures pairs the warmth, richness and texture of real wood with limitless design flexibility. Think wood-textured textiles, tree-printed wallpapers and embossed soaps that look like wood. Installing engineered wood ceilings and wainscoting can bring the unique look of reclaimed wood into any environment - an easy do-ityourself project with striking results. • Ode to the elements. Mother Nature is inspiring design in a big way this year and homeowners are finding unique ways to incorporate rocks, minerals and other natural elements into their home’s design. Try replacing a common-place item like an alarm clock with one encased within a multi-colored agate. Bring this look to the kitchen with a stainless steel backsplash, or swap out runof-the-mill hardware with mineral-inspired drawer pulls and knobs.• Shore thing. Homeowners, inspired by the calm, care-free attitude of coastal living are all about bringing the beach inside this season. Beach-inspired design elements are popping up throughout the home. Weathered and whitewashed wood ceilings are a subtle but stunning ontrend addition - especially when finished with interior accents like decorative shells, drift wood furniture and marine-themed prints. • Contrast in texture. Step aside Pantone, texture is spring’s hottest new color. Homeowners are putting down their paintbrushes and adding interest with texture through high-gloss finishes, metallics, sequins and mirrors. A textured tile wall brings visual and tactile interest, especially when paired with contrasting high-gloss lacquer or low-gloss matte accessories. • Visual punch. Reawaken the senses this spring by incorporating a striking visual element to the home. Multi-dimensional surface treatments in pearl, metallic and gold/silver combinations add panache as a coating used for hardwood, or can be applied to wallpaper, furniture or decorative accessories. And don’t forget to look up — coffered

ceilings bring a striking je ne sais quoi to any room. • Manipulated metals. The versatility of manipulated metal makes it a great addition to any style home - from hand-crafted artisan to contemporary high gloss.

Sowing the seeds of spring: How to start your garden indoors (BPT) — While cooler temperatures slowly fade, gardeners across the country eagerly await the arrival of spring — and the chance to get outdoors and grow something. If gardening is your passion, you don’t have to wait until the weather is perfect to get started. In fact, working ahead by growing your own seedlings is a great way to ensure your garden is successful throughout the warmer months. “Planting seedlings indoors before transplanting them into the ground is a great use of time and money,” says Darin Brockelbank, owner of Metro-Greenscape, landscape design and outdoor specialists, and members of the Porch.com home improvement network. More than 1.5 million professionals participate in the network, offering services for more than 90 million projects. “Growing seedlings is something homeowners can easily do on their own and save their money to hire professionals for larger projects.” Starting your own seedlings offers many advantages, including the ability to get a jump-start on spring planting. Growing your own plants from seed is less expensive than buying small plants and provides access to a much wider variety of plants. The pros at Porch. com offer these tips for starting seedlings to get your garden growing:
Caring for seedlings It’s important to provide seedlings with constant moisture, but don’t let the soil get soggy. If you used plastic wrap or covers, remove them from containers once seeds have sprouted. When leaves appear, begin fertilizing with a liquid fertilizer. Pay close attention to the dosage amounts recommended on the fertilizer packaging; seedlings are fragile. Check on seedlings daily until you’re ready to plant them outdoors. “If your plants begin to bud before you transplant them to the outdoors, wait to move them until they are fully bloomed,”-Brockelbank says. “If you transPlanting seedlings indoors before transplanting them into the ground helps save time and money when plant them while they are starting a garden. Courtesy photo buds and cool weather hits, Selecting seeds Some seeds can be planted and started indoors, while others need to go directly in the ground outdoors. As you’re choosing seeds for your garden, read the packets thoroughly to ensure the seeds you’re buying are appropriate for indoor planting. Be aware that many vegetable seeds need to be planted directly in the ground. Most packages will also include information on what time of year to plant, so follow the guidelines for best results. In general, start seeds about six weeks before the last frost date. Check the Farmer’s Alma-
nac Frost Date Calculator with plastic wrap or plastic to find out when that is in lids will help keep soil and seeds moist. your area. Choosing containers Seed starter kits are available for easy planting, but any container will do as long as it is about 2 to 3 inches deep and has drainage holes. Egg cartons and paper cups are inexpensive and easy options; be sure to poke drainage holes in the bottoms. Fill your containers with a good soil mix — never use regular soil from your yard. Seeds need just the right texture and mixture of nutrients to succeed. Covering your containers
Setting the environment In order to germinate, most seeds need a steady temperature of about 78 F. You can create localized warmth for seeds through use of electric heaters or heat mats placed under containers. You can also try placing containers atop warm appliances, such as a refrigerator, as long as they will also receive ample light in the location. Once seedlings push through the soil, you can move them to a windowsill where they’ll get more natural light.
they could get frost bite and die. When it’s time to transplant the seeds, make sure the soil is no cooler than 60 degrees.” Of course, not everyone with the urge to grow a garden has the time to invest or the green thumb to achieve it. If you find yourself lacking the resources to plant and care for seedlings, Porch.com has plenty of professionals who can help you get — and keep — your garden growing. “The hardest part of planting seeds indoors is caring for them before they are transplanted,”-Brockelbank says. “Once they transplanted, the are plants should be very low maintenance.”

‘Envision’ a new and functional outdoor space Farm-to-table, sustainability and eco-friendly are buzzwords that are taking over newsfeeds and headlines wherever we look. Restaurants, markets and other businesses are capitalizing on a movement that focuses on producing food locally and living a resource conscious lifestyle. One area business is leading a movement that is connecting clients to their landscapes through innovative design and construction techniques. En-
vision Landscape Studio’s impressive resume of local landscape overhauls is a showcase of well-planned, water-conscious projects that are as functional as they are beautiful. The business of landscaping has undergone many changes in recent years in aligning with shifts in our society’s view toward resource and material consumption. “For instance, showing off your high-end barbecue was once a trend in landscaping,” Navid Mostatabi of Envision Landscape Studio said. “The current trend is less about the objects we put in our landscape and more about how we use and experience our outdoor spaces. “The new trend is to share your cooking skills using fruits and vegetables harvested from your garden. “People are now showing off their rainwater harvesting systems and solar panels mounted on shade structures in the landscape. Lawns are shrinking and the extra space in the garden is being filled with beneficial plants such as fruits, vegetables, California native plants, succulents, and other varieties of drought tolerant plants.” A couple of the firm’s recent projects exemplify their mission. In Pacific Beach they created an urban farmstead disguised under the clean contemporary design style they are known for. The job incorporated a chicken coop, fruit orchard, raised vegetable garden, outdoor kitchen, planted vertical wall, prefabricated studio and rainwater harvesting tanks to capture roof runoff. In Rancho Santa Fe, Envision completed a custom outdoor vegetable structure made of redwood and steel mesh panels. Around the structure there was a series of swales created that capture rainwater and allow for deep soaking in rain events, which minimizes the need for irrigation. All the vegetables and the orchard are irrigated by a 5,000-gallon underground tank, which captures rainwater during the winter from surrounding hillsides. This project was collaboration between Carson Douglas Landscape Architects and Envision Landscape Studio and is a prime example of how clients are tapping into the company’s knowledge of materials and plants to create one-of-a-kind landscape features. On another project in Encinitas, Envision is
keeping rainwater on site through several planted bioswales. “By keeping rainwater, we reduce the impact on existing storm water infrastructure which means less water runoff finding its way to our streams and eventually ocean,” Mostatabi said. “We see landscape architecture as an artistic expression of the synthesis of man, environment and social interaction,” Mostatabi, Envision Landscape Studio’s licensed landscape architect, said. “We strive to create spaces that are innovative, sustainable and responsive to existing environs.” According to Mostatabi, landscaping is about much more than a pretty garden or yard. “Landscaping can be a complex and important element to the local ecosystem and an integral part to the Southern California indoor/outdoor lifestyle.” To that end, irrigation efficiency, storm water management, habitat creation and the creation of outdoor rooms are a few key elements of landscaping that go beyond aesthetics. Sustainability and water conservation are undeniably notable benefits to a landscape overhaul. One additional benefit worth mentioning is a return on investment for a homeowner. “In general, creating a space that can serve as an extension of the house is going to get a homeowner the most bang for the buck. We are creating outdoor rooms that are competing with indoor rooms and encouraging people to spend more time outside of their homes,” Mostatabi said. Envision Landscape Studio combines landscape architecture and landscape contractor services. “This allows us to view our projects from both an artistic perspective and a constructability perspective,” Mostatabi said. “This method of working results in seamless communication between the client, the designer and the contractor. Envision Landscape Studio is licensed to perform the anything you can dream of in the landscape: concrete, masonry, carpentry, electrical work, gas lines, drainage, grading, irrigation and planting. Envision Landscape Studio is an award-winning company that operates design/build offices out of San Diego and Walnut Creek, Calif.

Ranch resident helps homeowners realize landscape dreams RANCHO SANTA FE — If you’ve been in the Ranch recently, chances are you’ve encountered the gorgeous renovation of the The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The four-month project was the undertaking of Terra Bella Landscape, who worked in conjunction with Davis Reed Construction to bring new life to the historic space. Despite a time crunch to get the property ready for the wedding of owner John Moores, the renovations were completed and the results are spectacular. Though it was a special and significant project for Jason Jarvis of Terra Bella Landscape, epic renovations are nothing new for him and his team. Terra Bella Landscape celebrates one decade of business this year, a milestone Jarvis is particularly proud of. Jarvis is a Rancho Santa Fe resident whose business has grown wildly to include projects ranging from the design of small outdoor spaces to complete multi-million dollar overhauls of equestrian estates. The Terra Bella team offers design, build and even maintenance for their clients. They also specialize in the design and construction of outdoor-living spaces, including pools, outdoor kitchens and landscape lighting. The quality of the services provided by Terra Bella Landscape earned them Readers’ Choice awards in Ranch & Coast Magazine for the past three years. What resonates with their clients is Terra Bella’s ability to produce their
Their clients agree. “Thank you for completing our project on time and on budget,” a client and Carlsbad resident said. “Your team is very professional and respectful of our home and our family. We love our new yard. Thank you!” Jarvis’ true passion for landscape design has deep roots. Coming from a family of developers, he constantly found himself at nurseries looking at plants and trees in his free time. He eventually decided to dedicate himself to landscape full time. Whether a client wants their landscape to become water-wise or they are looking for a lavish outdoor dream space. “Whether you are looking for a decadent display of outdoor luxury living or a simple park-like garden — we will deliver your vision to you,” Jarvis said. “We employ experienced artisan craftsmen that are trained to have an eye for detail and take pride in their work. We use only top quality materials that are specially selected for your individual project.” “Terra Bella Landscape is the best,” said one recent client and Rancho Santa Fe resident. “They were so professional, and knowledgeable. They listened to our ideas and took off with them. What they produced was the most amazing work. Our landscaping looks like the Four Seasons.” Terra Bella is so committed to their clients that they aren’t just looking for a one-off collaboration. “Our goal is to become your landscaper for life,” Jarvis said.
space to entertain and escape, Terra Bella Landscape has the team to get the job done.

Lars Remodeling & Design educates homeowners
“Say what you mean, mean what you say. It’s not just a slogan, it’s the way we do business” says Jason Larson, president, founder, and resident optimist of Lars Remodeling & Design. In March of 1991, Jason, a second-generation home remodeler, founded Lars Remodeling & Design. Built on the family values and training of his father, Lars Remodeling & Design has grown to be one of the largest and most respected home remodeling design-build firms in San Diego. For more than 23 years, Lars Remodeling & Design has built its reputation for excellence on a foundation of trust, service, and integrity. Building on that foundation, and seeing a need in the industry for homeowner education, Lars University was created. Coining the phrase, “Educate Before You Renovate,” the Lars University Homeowner Workshop Se-
ries is educating homeowners on the complexities of remodeling. Says Larson, “There are a lot of bear traps out there and we want clients to know that we are a resource for them.” Though prospective clients attending this workshop may expect a hard sales pitch for Lars Remodeling & Design, they come away with anything but. Lars makes it clear from the start that while they would love to partner with homeowners interested in remodeling, their main goal is to teach homeowners at least one thing that may save them thousands of dollars and countless headaches while remodeling their homes. The Lars University presentation takes homeowners someplace where other remodelers doing similar workshops are not going — into the nuts and bolts of remodeling. They will take homeowners through the initial process of design.
If you’re not sure where to begin, they’ll help you to find your way, and show you that anything is possible. The interior selection phase can be overwhelming, but with the help of an experienced interior designer, it all comes together for an amazing cohesive look that fits your likes and lifestyle. And then it’s on to the scary stage of production, where everything is taken out, sometimes down to the studs, and put back together again to make those dreams become a reality in front of your eyes. Lars believes that communication is key to the success of any remodeling project. And by using the best of current technologies along with good old fashioned face-to-face meetings, homeowners can track the progress of their remodel anytime day or night. Visit LarsUniversity.com for information on upcoming workshops.
How to keep cats out of your garden beds Cats make for wonderful pets, especially those that are content with life indoors, where they can spend hours lounging on a windowsill watching the world go by. But some cats spend a significant amount of time outdoors, where they forage for food and take refuge in and around a neighborhood. Frequently, outdoor cats will return to the same place over and over again. If that place is your flower bed, you may grow aggravated by your uninvited guest. Once a cat has found a place to call its own, it can be difficult to persuade the animal to move. Cats can be attracted to planting beds because the soil is soft underfoot and may seem like the ideal environment to turn into an outdoor litter box. However, over time cat urine and feces can leave behind an offensive odor and damage plants. Other cats also may be attracted to the garden, creating territory “wars” or even more odor and activity. But

homeowners can employ a variety of techniques to keep felines from digging in the garden. • Keep leftover citrus peels. Orange, lemon and lime peels scattered around the garden may be offensive to cats, who will likely opt to go elsewhere rather than ignore the odor. Over time, the peels can be removed or allowed to break down into a natural fertilizer. • Employ technology to surprise or startle the cats. Motion detectors that trigger lights or a sprinkler system can startle cats and keep them away from your
garden. • Make the garden uncomfortable to cats. Many cats do not like the feeling hard materials under their paws. Therefore, you can bury any number of items in the soil to deter padded feet. Some gardeners prefer to use chicken wire or rolled mesh around plants before covering the soil with mulch. The cats step on the dirt and feel the metal underneath, then move on. Branches, brambles, spiky holly leaves, or even rocks may keep cats from finding the garden bed hos-
pitable. • Employ natural scented deterrents. Some say that cats will be repelled by human hair. Visit a salon and ask for hair clippings to distribute throughout the garden. Urine from predators, like coyotes, may scare cats off, as well. Some cats may not like the smell of marigolds, which can be planted alongside other flowers in an attempt to keep cats at bay. • Erect barriers around the garden. Barriers can keep cats out of gardens. Erect a fence of lattice or metal to make it more difficult for cats to get inside the garden. • Make other areas of your property more attractive to cats. Homeowners who don’t mind the presence of cats on their property but want them out of the garden can take the unusual step of making another area on the property more cat-friendly. Plant catnip far away from the garden, giving cats a place to hang out without putting your garden in jeopardy.
Family flooring business treats customers like one of their own Few choices you make as a homeowner are as personal and as long-term as your flooring. Paint colors and furniture can be changed easily, but you will have your flooring for many years and through many changes in your life and style. The old adage “you get what you pay for” comes to mind. Of course everyone wants to save money, but when it comes to some things, your flooring included, the cheapest way isn’t always the best way. “Those who shop only the price because it is the cheapest, will get cheap work, cheap service, and in a lot of instances an improper installation that leads to problems down the road which nobody stands up for,” said Shane Munoz, of West Coast Flooring. “We have extremely aggressive and competitive pricing, but when you buy from West Coast Flooring we care more about the service we provide you and a positive experience when choosing flooring.” And there are a lot of choices at West Coast Flooring. “We offer a wide selection of hardwood flooring, laminate, natural stone, tile, carpet, LVT and vinyl,” Munoz said. “We offer the service of coming out to a customer’s home and bringing samples so we can do an inhome design consultation.” A new player in the carpeting arena is a new soft yarn that manufacturers are coming out with. “Anso Caress from Shaw and Silk from Mohawk are the two top brand names,” Munoz said. “The nylon fiber is not only durable but it’s softer than it has ever been made in the 50 to 60 years it’s been around.” There are some new additions to the wood flooring world as well. “In regards to wood, my favorite trend is the transition from a more distressed, ‘Old World’style floor to the new oilbased hardwood flooring,” Munoz said. “The colors created from this new style are much more contemporary

and organic then anything we have seen in the last 10 to 15 years.” As spring closes in, now is a great time for customers to make a change to their home. “Labor costs are still lower than they were back in the housing boom by far and we offer such programs as 12- to 24-month financing with low or no interest,” Munoz said. West Coast Flooring has been in business for 25 years. Originally opened by Ed and Claire Kruger, the business is now family-owned with their family Kelley Kruger and Shane Munoz. “But when it is all said and done, everyone in our company is a key player,” Munoz said. “They all play a roll in providing the best sales experience, installation, and overall customer service.” The family business mentality isn’t just for those who work at West Coast Flooring. “The reason West Coast Flooring stands out is because we want our customers to leave our store feeling like they are part of the family just as much as all of our employees,” Munoz said. “All of our employees have worked for us for four to 15 years and that is because we love what we do, we enjoy each other, and we all love helping our customers.” Coast FloorWest ing is located at 1617 Capalina Ave. in San Marcos.

Learn about new solar financing Upcoming solar luncheon to inform North County residents Solar power has been America’s fastest-growing industry for the past two years, allowing homeowners to save money while declaring energy independence. New financing options have changed the game for solar, allowing homeowners to go solar for cheaper than the utility. The North County cities of Oceanside, Solana Beach, Vista and San Marcos have opted in to a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program, offering residents a new financing option for solar. The PACE program selected for these cities is called Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) financing. It provides property owners low-cost, low-interest financing options for energy efficiency upgrades, and can paid through property taxes over five to 20 years. The HERO
program includes fixed interest rates, tax write-offs and increased property value. If the homeowner moves, the loan is tied to the property, not the person. There is not a credit score requirement. “Never before have you been able to finance your solar system through your property taxes,” said David Savarese, director of project development at Sullivan Solar Power, a registered HERO contractor, “HERO allows homeowners to go solar for zero money out of pocket.” Sullivan Solar Power is working to educate the local community about going solar. Property owners interested in learning more are encouraged to attend the free solar power seminar March 22, from 11 a.m. to noon at the Oceanside Public Library (330 N Coast Hwy, Oceanside, 92054). The free seminar will cover solar technology, rebates and incentives, and the HERO program. To RSVP or to learn more, call 1-800-SULLIVAN or visit SullivanSolarPower.com.

Gardening myths still exist when it comes to using certain techniques. A few of the more common myths are dispelled here. Courtesy photo
Weed out gardening myths from facts Gardening is an age-old activity that was once a necessity but has transformed into a hobby for thousands of people. While gardening still serves practical purposes, many gardeners still consider it a hobby first and foremost. Time-tested gardening techniques have prevailed, but there remain certain myths about gardening that are best dispelled. The following are some of the more common myths associated with gardening. • MYTH: Compost tea is more effective than traditional compost. All over North America and the United Kingdom, gardeners have jumped on board the compost tea bandwagon. Compost tea is a fertilizer created by steeping compost in water mixed with sugar in brewing kits. The mixture is allowed to sit and aerate to encourage beneficial organism growth before it is sprayed on plants. Accord-
ing to supporters, compost tea suppresses disease and boosts plant yields. However, there is no evidence to suggest that compost tea works any better than adding compost in its normal state to the soil. In fact, leaving buckets of the “tea” around to ferment could actually create a breeding ground for E coli and other bacteria. • MYTH: Plants under stress should be fertilized. This is not the case. Horticulturists advise that fertilizing plants that are not deficient in nutrients can actually add to existing stress levels for plants. Plants are not often stressed by a lack of food, but rather heat, faulty planting or space constraints. A fed plant will use the energy to absorb the nutrients instead of defending against a blight or establishing better root systems. • MYTH: Young trees need stakes. It may be tempting to stake that little sapling to protect it against the weather and strong winds, but doing so may actually work against the foundling tree. Staking trees to inhibit swaying may not stimulate the tree to grow thicker, lower trunks that will help the tree in the long run. The Royal Horticultural Soci-
ety recommends that saplings be staked for around one year and then have the stakes removed to encourage the tree to be strong and stable on its own. • MYTH: Water droplets and sunshine lead to burnt leaves. Gardeners have been told to resist watering their plants during the hottest times of the day. Many assume it’s because water droplets lying on leaves will magnify the sun’s rays and burn the leaves. According to Dr. Gabor Horvath at the Eoetvoes University in Budapest, water droplets will rarely damage plants because the drops are too close to the leaves to cause burning before they evaporate. Watering during the hottest points of the day is not advised because water evaporates and gets wasted. • MYTH: Sand added to clay soil makes it looser and better for plants. Clay soil is a deterrent to gardening because it can be so hard to dig and difficult to cultivate, but some feel it’s best to add sand to the clay to make it a better soil mixture. You would need a great deal of sand to do this in the right manner, but many gardeners simply dig a hole, add sand and hope for the best.
Locally Owned/Operated Since 1983
However, water runoff will pool in the sand and not be absorbed by the clay, potentially causing the plants to drown. • MYTH: Adding compost or potting soil to the planting hole for a tree or shrub is beneficial. Gardeners frequently add compost or potting soil to the hole where the root ball of a tree or shrub will be placed. But this encourages the roots to grow only in this nutrient-rich area, rather than spreading throughout the landscape to form a stronger and more durable root system. If you are going to amend the soil, do so evenly across the landscape. • MYTH: Use gravel or rocks in the bottom of planting containers to improve drainage. Rocks and gravel can actually impede the growth of plants and take away space for roots to grow. The drainage may be affected as well, as water will sit above the gravel or stones and saturate the roots. Stick with plain soil for better drainage results. A variety of gardening myths still prevail. Over time, behaviors can be changed if gardeners learn to separate myths from facts.

Faux wood tile leads hot new trends in tile (BPT) — Fake and faux are far apart. Fake is meant to deceive, but faux is intended as a tribute or a toast to something great or beautiful. Faux wood tile is one of the hottest trends in home remodeling and home decorating. Paying tribute to beautiful hardwood flooring, faux wood tile is a ceramic tile that combines the rich, textured finishes and warmth of real wood with the durability, functionality and design flexibility of tile. And, it costs a fraction of what real hardwood flooring costs. “The strong trend toward faux wood tile is due to its contemporary, sophisticated look and durability,” says Kirsty Froelich, design director with The Tile Shop, the nation’s leading retailer of high quality, premium manufactured and natural stone tiles from all over the world. “That’s one of the reasons why you’re noticing it in upscale boutique hotels. The other reason is more practical. Because it’s water-resistant, you can use faux wood in parts of the home where moisture and water make real wood impractical, such as bathrooms, kitchens and foyers.” Designers and homeowners love the abundance of available finishes in faux wood tile, from natural, earthy tones to colors that many homeowners would never dream of staining in hardwoods, like washed-out whites and light grays. These lighter colors have become increasingly popular in contemporary homes with open, light-filled spaces that bring out the tile’s visual woodgrain texture. Just because faux wood tile looks like a million bucks, doesn’t mean it costs a fortune. The price per square foot is a fraction of what a homeowner would pay for real hardwood flooring, a point that has undoubtedly added to its appeal and rise in popularity. Beyond faux wood, Froelich points to other hot tile trends, including: Commercial style: Large-size tiles, typically seen in commercial or industrial settings, are all the rage in

upscale homes. Large 12-by-24-inch tiles and extra large 16-by-24-inch tiles give rooms a big, spacious look. Instead of paint or wallpaper, consider using 10-by-30-inch long wall tiles to add rich texture and color to your living room or great room. Glass and stone mosaics: Many homeowners are mixing little mosaic tiles consisting of different shades of natural stone with glass tiles in square, round and rectangular shapes to give their kitchens and baths a distinct, high-end touch of class. Reclaimed wood tile: Homeowners love the look and feel of reclaimed wood - like the wood from an old barn, an old wooden ship or antique furniture. But reclaimed wood can be quite expensive. Now homeowners can add that reclaimed wood style with wall tiles made of ceramic or natural stone that offer a natural, authentic weathered look. More texture: Homeowners are shifting away from shiny polished stone and moving toward more marble with a smooth or lightly textured finish. Homeowners are also mixing and matching different styles of tiles to create more contrast and a more layered, textured feel in their spaces. Floor to ceiling: Tile isn’t just for
bathroom floors and kitchen backsplashes anymore. Because of the low maintenance and high durability of tile, many homeowners are wrapping the walls of their bathrooms and kitchens, from floor to ceiling, in tile. In living and dining rooms, entire walls of tile add a warm, yet contemporary accent. Spa feel: The bathroom is still a place where a person can experience some peace and quiet in our busy, high-tech lives. That’s why the trend of turning your bathroom into a European spa still continues strong with the use of natural stones and soothing glass tiles. Timeless feel: For some homeowners, especially those who own an older or historical home, vintage subway tile or arabesque tiles deliver a classic, yet contemporary look that will never go out of fashion. Simulated stone and incredible patterns: With new printing technology, homeowners can get the natural, unpredictable look of stone in ceramic tile, offering a lower cost option to obtain the high-class look of marble, slate or granite. In addition, a new wave of incredible patterns on ceramic tile is emerging for the more daring homeowner.
Home construction methods face major changes All across North America, home builders agree that the best investment — for the occupant and for resale value — requires adopting the newest and most advanced methods and materials. One bold option already solving high fuel costs and safety during severe wind storms is a revolutionary concrete system to replace standard wood-frame walls. “The system erects the main structure of a house (or any building) with pre-assembled ‘insulated concrete forms’,” says Todd Blyth at Nudura, a leading name in this ICF technology. “Each reinforced concrete form interlocks, like Lego, to create one monolithic wall with a thickness from 4 to 12 inches. “The method has been certified, tested and made available as an alternative to wood framing for many years,” he continued. “It is only now, however, that the numerous occupant benefits, including the ability to withstand hurricane force winds, are suddenly in the spotlight. This kind of concrete home also provides superior fire and flood protection, sound resistance, plus temperature and draft con-

trol — and due to the insulation and durability, it can save you up to 70 percent on energy bills. You get a far stronger house with a warm and inviting atmosphere as well.” Green and beautiful Blyth points out that opting for an ICF home is environmentally sound as well. In addition to reducing or eliminating the drafts, cold spots and mold associated with wood, Nudura construction materials are more efficient and kinder to the natural environment due to:
* Recycled materials: The interlocking forms include a unique folding web design that is manufactured from 100 percent recycled polymers and steel. * Building durability: Concrete, instead of wood framing, reduces the need for trees, and since they are one of the most durable building materials, concrete structures can be expected to stand the test of time. * Waste reduction: Building with insulated concrete forms creates less waste during the construction process, sending less to landfills. The waste that
is created from ICFs is 100 percent recyclable. * Mold resistance: Laboratory tests confirm that unlike wood walls, this system does not support mold growth and the resulting health irritants that arise from airborne mold spores. * Energy performance: When combined with other energy-efficient construction methods, building with concrete significantly reduces the amount of fossil fuels needed for heating and cooling, and thus reduces the carbon footprint of everyone in the house. Even with this lifelong commitment to sustainability, there won’t be a tradeoff on any of the aesthetics we desire in a dream home, Blyth explains. “On the outside of the building, the concrete walls can be finished with smart-looking brick, or they can be beautified with stone, stucco, wood, and vinyl siding. The interior is wide open to dream features as well. Innovative architectural shapes, such as arches, bay windows and specific door styles, are easily achieved with the Nudura system to meet any desir ed interior design.”

Spring into four simple DIY home decorating trends (BPT) — Whether you're personalizing a new home or revitalizing an old room, the start of spring is when newly imagined spaces become do-it-yourself realities. Here are four easy and affordable DIY tips to bring 2014's trends into your home. Don't just spring clean ... spring create Spring cleaning doesn't have to mean getting rid of everything in the garage. Familiar pieces showcased in a special way can be a conversation starter. Love cycling, but have an old bicycle that you don't ride anymore?- Consider using its components to construct a unique piece of furniture to showcase your passion for the sport. Peter Debelak, co-owner of Soulcraft Woodshop and Gallery, a membership-based community woodworking workshop in Cleveland, Ohio, did just that. He used Elmer's ProBond Advanced, a con-
struction adhesive designed specifically for bonding porous to non-porous mixed materials, such as metal to wood or ceramic to drywall, to create a rotating wine rack made out of a bicycle wheel, as well as a shelf and coat rack constructed from a repurposed bicycle crankset and handlebars. "More and more we're seeing people personalize their home decor by transforming fascinating objects they love into home accessories and furnishings," says Debelak. Go ahead, mix materials Vintage and contemporary design elements come together to create rustic contemporary looks. "Reclaimed materials will heavily influence DIYers, and contrasting shiny and rustic materials in projects will definitely be trending in 2014," says KariAnne Wood, designer, blogger and owner of Thistlewood Farms. Metal, wood, glass, ceramic — all of these key materials play essential roles in making your home
the center of attention. Mixing two, or even all, of these together will give you an edge in creating a unique space. Consider gluing pieces of metal and wood together to construct an industrial-style coffee table. Able to work on almost any substrate, ProBond Advanced's "opposites attract" formula delivers a heavy-duty bond between porous and non-porous sur-
Give piece(s) a chance Recycled wooden pallets and cable spools are trending now on Pinterest in 2014, as DIYers turn them into coffee tables, desks and wall art. "Homeowners are finding ways to bring an element of surprise to staple pieces. Taking utilitarian items and helping them live a new, more beautiful life will enhance any space this season," says Wood.

faces. The glue doesn't leave a foam residue once it dries, so creating a masterpiece is as easy as glue, clamp and relax.
For a quick and simple patio transformation, spray paint large, wooden cable spools and use them as outdoor tables. Take it a step further by using Pro-
Bond Advanced to add a bold, ceramic tile mosaic without any grout, caulk or building required. Organize organically Most people kick spring off with a little time devoted to organizing. There are easy ways to make your current space functional for your lifestyle without sacrificing your design preferences. Don't let closet space get cluttered; rather, make use of a space you usually ignore. People are discovering new ways to make beautiful items more functional. That fabulous bench in your entryway may be storing winter coats in a secret storage space but your guests never need to know. Adding storage and improving organization can be just as creative as other spring decorating endeavors. Enhancing your storage solutions can include hanging an old door horizontally and attaching metal hooks to make an instant mudroom by your entryway.
Wire baskets glued to wood shelves become a great home for keys, shoes, and outdoor accessories. No time to build anything? Not to worry. Simply hang a shoe rack on the back of a door, and you have a perfect set of compartments to hold supplies in any room. This season, stay on trend without busting your budget (or your back) by stepping outside of your comfort zone and embracing your most creative ideas. Whether you're upcycling old items found in the garage into new masterpieces, or giving a more modern pop to a traditional coffee table, this year's trends involve unique materials and bold design elements. The possibilities are endless, and it's important to have the right materials to complete every project quickly and correctly the first time. Learn more about Elmer's ProBond Advanced to help you get the job done.
Add your health to this spring cleaning’s to-do list (BPT) — Spring is a season for dusting, washing and polishing the home, cleaning up the yard of any winter debris and even cleaning the storage on the computer or laptop. Spring also should be a time to clean up your health — adding small habits to your lifestyle that can result in big changes to your well-being. From making simple changes to your oral care routine to finding a way to make exercise fun, the following small lifestyle changes are courtesy of Dr. Natalie Strand, the director of integrative medicine at Freedom Pain Hospital in Scottsdale, Ariz. She has worked closely with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, American Diabetes Association and dLife to promote
exercise and healthy living among people living with diabetes. • Relax, don't just rest — Stress is a huge contributor to poor health, but many people don't know how to manage it. People often mistake resting for relaxing, but it's not the same. Learn some stress-reducing techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation or meditation. • Spruce up your mouth health — You're already brushing your teeth twice a day, so make the switch to using oral care products that do more than just protect, but can actually help improve the health of your mouth. The Colgate Total regimen consists of brushing with the Colgate Toothpaste. Follow with Colgate 360&deg; Total Advanced Floss-Tip Toothbrush using Total Advanced Pro-Shield Colgate Total Advanced Mouthwash. In just two
weeks, this regimen is proven to eliminate 15 times more bacteria than a non-bacterial control regi-
• Make exercise fun — Spring is the perfect time of year to combine exercise with social activities. Be creative to get endorphins pumping and think of things to do with friends such as taking a salsa class, archery lessons, or an evening walk around the neighborhood. • Get a spring tune-up — Doctor's appointments are important, but often pushed to the wayside. Make a list and schedule all your appointments at once: yearly check-ups, dental exams and cleanings, eye exams, etc. * Get seasonal — Check out your local farmers market. Buy seasonal foods and try to incorporate them in men, fights germs, fortifies your meals every day. Seaenamel, and improves gum sonal produce is more flahealth.

Empty nesters want low-maintenance yards (BPT) — One of the first questions new empty nesters face is: what do we do with the nest? Some are eager to downsize and sell. Others like where they live and choose to stay put. No matter the decision, the property, new or old, is likely in for a makeover aimed at making routine upkeep more manageable. One of the key areas to tackle is the yard and garden. The following are tips for transforming a yard’s maintenance-hungry features, especially the lawn, into alternatives that offer fun and functionality without the fuss. • Create no mow zones — The lawn is often a yard’s highest maintenance feature. One simple way to reduce lawn maintenance is to strategically stop mowing certain parts of the yard, while continuing to maintain more desirable areas. Un-mowed areas needn’t look messy. Delineate the divide between mowed lawn and wilder spaces with a strategically placed stone wall or wooden fence. Adding clusters of ornamental grasses or shrubs along the new lawn’s edge also works to soften the border transition. For a bit of fun, sow some un-mown areas with wildflower seeds. Add green trails for impromptu strolls or heart-pumping walks by cutting a circular path through the no-mow zone. Post birdhouses or feeders along the route for bird watching. • Swap some turf for landscape beds — Freestanding landscape islands of trees, shrubs, bulbs and perennials are appealing low-maintenance features that can reduce lawn area. Landscape beds are also a solution for difficult to maintain stretches like steep slopes, rough terrain and curbside strips. It’s important to cover exposed soil with mulch to stop weeds from growing. To go from low to practically no maintenance, sprinkle a weed preventer like Preen on top of mulch to stop
weed seeds in the mulch itself from sprouting. Better yet, use Preen Mulch Plus, a premium bagged mulch with added weed preventers already mixed in. Available at Lowe’s stores and independent garden centers, it’s guaranteed to prevent more than 100 types of tough weeds, including dandelions, for up to six months. • Switch to lawn care “lite”— With less lawn why hang on to over-sized lawn care equipment? Today there are new compact choices scaled to yards under 1/4 acre including cordless electric mulching mowers, battery-powered edgers and programmable directional lawn sprinklers. There’s also a new spreader designed for small lawns, slopes and tight spaces that’s ergonomic too. The Ready2Go Spreader is a lightweight, hand-carried and battery-powered unit that comes pre-loaded with popular lawn products from Preen, Greenview or Vigoro to feed or treat up to 2,500 square feet. Each is refillable and pre-calibrated, so no settings are ever needed. • Deck the yard for fun and folly. Converting open spaces to outdoor entertaining areas is another way to reduce yard maintenance. Paved patios and decks make perfect places to sit, barbecue, dine or simply enjoy being outdoors. New composite decking, bricks and paving stones are definitely low upkeep installations. Other ideas include fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, gravel paths and terraces. Don’t just look at spots close to the house: come up with reasons to hang out in different parts of the yard. • Uncontained enthusiasm for containers — Downsizing elaborate garden beds is another area to explore. But don’t give up seasonal flowers: plant in containers. A booming trend among boomers, container plantings add accent color and seasonal drama to decks, patios, paths and other outdoor spaces. For
lower maintenance choose fewer but bigger pots. Just a few large containers of colorful plants will have a major impact. They also retain soil moisture better than smaller pots and need watering less often. Except in coldest areas, large frost-resistant resin or fiberglass containers can be left out year-round. For long-term plantings, check plant labels for USDA winter hardiness zones. Potted plants are more exposed to the elements, so choose ones rated one zone colder than usual. Life in an empty nest can be a time of rediscovery. Reducing lawn and garden upkeep is one way boomers can free up time for other more entertaining pursuits.

Insulation: The key to ending drafts and cutting utility bills (BPT) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Whether it's the chill of winter or the heat of summer, our natural instincts are to adjust the indoor temperature so it is comfortable through every season. But if your home has any drafts or air leaks, expect indoor temperatures to fluctuate dramatically. Leaks and drafts can hinder the performance of your heating-ventilation-air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and cause your utility bills to skyrocket. Why? Conditioned air continually escapes the home due to the gaps within the building envelope, and HVAC equipment will work overtime to reach the thermostat's set temperature. What's more, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests that air leakage contributes to potential moisture problems that can affect occupant health and the home's durability. While traditional stopgap solutions, such as placing runners by doors, may provide some relief, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends homeowners take a comprehensive approach. First, detect where the air leaks are within your home. A certified Home Energy Rating System Rater will be able to help you identify such areas as well as help assess your ventilation needs for indoor air quality. Once all sources of
air leaks have been identified, air sealing techniques and materials can be applied. Caulking and weather-stripping are two of the most popular and common techniques that can help address air leaks. However building experts will suggest considering solutions that go further in terms of air-sealing. A recent study by the Building Science Corporation showed that heat transfer was much lower in a home equipped with spray foam insulation than with other, more traditional materials such as fiberglass or cellulose. The reduction, about 15 percent, indicates minimal thermal transmission and better block of heat transference, which can have a significant impact on how homeowners heat and cool their home.Installed by professionals, spray foam insulation, like that available from Icynene, works well in all climates to completely seal the building, filling every gap to stop air leakage and help reduce the strain on HVAC equipment. Spray foam insulation both insulates and air seals the entire building envelope letting homeowners cut their monthly heating and cooling bills by as much as 50 percent in some cases. As a long-term solution, spray foam insulation helps maintain a comfortable temperature year-round while helping to control monthly heating and cooling expenses. Thanks to spray foam insulation's air-sealing qualities, homeowners can reduce the size of their heating and cooling equipment since less effort is required to heat or cool the home, according to InsulationSmart.com. While air leakage can cause energy bills to sky-rocket, a well-insulated home and economical winterizing can help you get through the cold winter months.

Low-water garden plants an option

Coping with drought is a way of life for many people across North America. The National Climatic Data Center, a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, works cooperatively with Canada and Mexico to monitor climate and drought conditions across the continent. According to the NOAA, the globally-averaged temperature for 2013 tied as the fourth warmest year since 1880, when record-keeping began. 2013 also marked the 37th consecutive year with a global temperature above the 20th century average. Warm temperatures, when
paired with below-average precipitation, can quickly escalate and cause drought, making things difficult for those who make their livelihood by working the land or even just weekend gardeners. Low-water garden plants are a smart choice for those who live in areas that often deal with drought. These resilient plants can keep gardens looking lush and beautiful regardless of water restrictions. In fact, low-water gardening has become a popular trend among eco-conscious gardeners and even is a cost-saving measure for homeowners.
Establishing a garden of drought-tolerant plants requires knowledge of hardiness zones and which plants will thrive in certain areas. Native plants, in general, will be more tolerant to fluctuations in weather than plants that are imported. Contact a garden center and speak with someone knowledgeable about plants that will do well in low-water conditions. In addition, choose plants that have a reputation for drought resistance. Butterfly bush is very hardy and requires little water. Although it is considered an invasive plant in some areas, gardeners who keep on top of seedlings and off-shoots can keep the plant in control. This shrub will create an enormous amount of flowers that will appear in the spring and will continue to bloom throughout the summer. The butterfly bush also attracts scores of butterflies to a landscape. Pink evening primrose is full of delicate, pink flowers that spread on runners. It prefers dry soils, and even though it can thrive when soil quality is poor,
it cannot tolerate soil that is too wet. It can grow in USDA zones five to nine. A variety of sage plants, including white sage, black sage and Cleveland sage, are drought-tolerant and do well in climates like Southern California's. These plants produce blooms that attract insects and birds alike. Gardeners who would like relatively low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plants can opt for succulents. Succulents, which include aloe, cacti and jade, are characterized by thick, fleshy water-storage organs. Succulents prefer bright light and can thrive in south-facing conditions. It's good to concentrate the most amount of watering for succulents during the spring growing season. Keep soil well-drained to avoid damage to shallow roots. Heed landscape conditions when selecting plants for the garden. Drought-tolerant plants are a good idea in those regions where weather is naturally arid or if homeowners prefer plants that can grow regardless of seasonal water restrictions.

These animals might just help your garden Planning and maintaining a garden requires a lot of effort, which can result in an aesthetically pleasing addition to the landscape. But that hard work can also fall victim to nature when local wildlife find a garden too mouth-watering to resist. In an effort to rid a garden of unwanted pests, gardeners may unwittingly scare away animals and insects that might just protect the garden from more ill-intentioned animals. Not every creature that scurries is out to get prized petunias or to devour tomatoes. In fact, many can prove beneficial to gardens.

Jays and mockingbirds are known to be feisty and can even deter dogs and cats from a yard. Hummingbirds will sip on the nectar of flowers and help pollinate plants.
Bats have a bad reputation, as people unnecessarily fear bats because they believe them to be carriers of disease. But many bats feed off of insects or fruits and will not harm a human.

structures, and cracked or bubbling paint. As spring approaches, the NPMA shares these prevention strategies homeowners can use to protect their homes from termite damage. • Keep less frequently used rooms such as basements, attics and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry. • Repair leaking faucets, water pipes and AC units which are on the outside of the home. The added moisture could attract Dampwood termites that need access to water. • Repair fascia, soffits and rotted roof shingles. Some species of termites colonize a home through the attic. • Routinely inspect the foundation of your home for signs of mud tubes (used by termites to reach a food source), cracked or bubbling paint and wood that sounds hollow when tapped. • Direct water away from your house through properly functioning downspouts, gutters and splash blocks. • Monitor all exterior areas of wood, including windows, doorframes and skirting boards for any noticeable changes. Many signs of a termite infestation are unnoticeable. For an inspection or if you think you have an infestation, be sure to contact a trained pest control professional.

(BPT) — Spring is when pests come out of hiding and hibernation to search for new places to establish their colonies. Unfortunately, it's not only the flowers in your garden that attract pests but also your home itself. One of the most determined springtime pests is termites. Termites live up to their nickname of the "silent destroyer" very well as they can munch away at your home, virtually undetected. And, it's not just the critical support beams that they feed on. Termites can chew up floors, walls and even wallpaper. According to a study by the National Pest Management Association, termites cost U.S. homeowners approximately $5 billion in damage, which is not typically covered by homeowners insurance. Early spring is a critical time to be on the lookout for termite infestations. When the ground warms up, swarmers emerge to search for a suitable mate. If a pair chooses your home for their new residence, you could be looking at a colony of millions. The swarmers shed their wings during the mating process, so signs of these wings around windows and doors could be a warning of an infestation. Other signs include soft wood that sounds hollow when tapped, darkening or blistering of wood
