Commission OKs zoning for medical marijuana dispensaries
.com THE VISTA NEWS
By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — The Planning Commission recommended a land use zoning amendment to allow medical marijuana dispensaries on May 5. The commission recommended the zoning change in a 3-2 vote, with Commission Chair Robert Neal and Commissioner Robert Ross casting the two no votes. Fellow commissioners spoke in favor of the zoning change that would provide medical marijuana patients a safe place to fill a doctor’s prescription. Following the meeting Commissioner Louise Ravera Balma said after listening to speakers for and against the zoning change, the need for patients to have access to prescribed medical marijuana outweighed the city’s opposition. Balma said the city’s claim of an increase in crime only cited one robTURN TO ZONING ON A7

After uncomfortable dialogue, city council declines pay raise By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — City council members shifted in their seats. They spoke in vague terms, and never mentioned a specific dollar figure. They made it known that they were uncomfortable with the duty before them. “When we think of difficult conversations to have, I would rather be sitting here approving an unbelievable number of housing,” said Mayor Matt Hall. At Tuesday night’s meeting, city council was not facing a big decision about development, the local power plant, capital improvement projects, or other hot button issues. They were tasked with deciding whether or not to give themselves a pay raise. Council had the option to directing staff to draft an ordinance that would increase their salaries, sending the matter to a citizen committee for advice, or opting out of a pay raise completely. City council members in Carlsbad earn a $16,688 annual salary, and the mayor earns $17,868 annually. Council members and the mayor are given an additional $75 per community development commission meeting and $100 per water board meeting. They are also given a yearly car allowance,

which totals $5,400 for the mayor and $4,200 for council members, and an annual $540 cell phone allowance. Salaries for other mayors and city council members in North County range from the $53,148.72 for the mayor of Escondido to $3,600 for the mayor and city council members of Del Mar.
Carlsbad City Council is permitted to raise their pay by 5 percent each year. Council salaries were last altered in 2009, when Council voted to decrease their salaries by 5 percent. So city council members had the opportunity to increase their pay by up to 5 percent for each year from 2009 to 2014 for a maximum 25 percent in-

crease. If council voted for the increase, the bump would take effect after the upcoming election this November. Council members tossed and turned between the notion that their current salaries do not fully compensate them for the work they do and the belief that serving on city
council should be a service and not a job. Mayor Pro Tem Mark Packard said that ideally council members should do the job “out of the goodness of your heart and not for a paycheck.” He emphasized that being on city council has cost him money because it takes away time that he is able to see patients for his
dental practice. Hall stated that though a city council position is technically part time, he knows that most members work more than 20 hours per week for the city and in some cases more than 40 hours. He said that current salaries do not measure up to the full scale of what they do, but added that he was comfortable with the pay level as is anyways. Councilmember Keith Blackburn stressed the idea that the city aligns the pay range of its employees in the middle of the pay scale for staff members in other cities in the county. He argued that city council’s salary should be held to the same standard and kept where it is in the middle of the pay range for city council members throughout the county. “As long as we are telling our employees that we are paying them right in the middle, I just can’t in good conscious let us raise our pay,” he said. “Though let me be clear, we deserve (a pay raise).” Council members Lorraine Wood and Michael Schumacher sided with sending the matter to a citizens committee. But Hall, Packard, and Blackburn eventually formed a majority agreement to not adjust the council’s salary at this time.

A letter to Encinitas City Council By Stephen Keyes
Jim Wood, the clear choice for District 5 By Dick Parker
It’s time for a new voice in San Diego County’s District 5. And that voice belongs to Jim Wood. Wood is running against Bill Horn in the upcoming District 5 Board of Supervisors election, pitting a career politician who has come short in serving his constituents, against a man who has the faith and trust of the people he serves. Wood can dethrone this corporate king by obtaining 51 percent of the vote in the June 3 primary election. Absentee ballots can be mailed in May to make sure everyone’s voice is heard in this critical election. Horn’s disappointing tenure has been dominated by his extreme rightwing views and granting developers their every wish. Wood doesn’t take marching orders from party insiders or corporate lobbyists. He communicates with his constituents, never forgetting that it is they, not he, who are in charge of North County. “District 5 really deserves someone that listens to the people,’’ said Wood, Oceanside’s popular and longtime mayor. “And not just the developers.’’ Wood is eager to uproot a career politician with agendas that seldom revolve around his constituents. time with Spend Wood and it’s clear why his approval rating is the envy of others: he lends an ear to all parties, not just those supplying checks to steer decisions in their direction. “Oceanside is a Republican town and next door to Camp Pendleton,’’ Wood said. “But when I raised my hand to be sworn in as mayor it said to be non-partisan. I’ve stayed that way and I’ve
done that for two reasons. “If you want something from Sacramento, that’s Democrats. If you want something from Washington, D.C., that’s Democrats. I’ve stayed non-partisan and that is to our benefit.’’ Oceanside’s voters know a good thing in Wood. He earned his stripes as an Oceanside police detective for 31 years, and then served on the Oceanside City Council. When a leadership void appeared in the mayor’s office, Wood was the right person for the job. People respect someone not claiming to have all the answers. Wood isn’t shy to explain his position, but he considers other points of view. “I think my popularity stems from getting out in the neighborhoods and seeing what people want,’’ Wood said. “I’m supported by republicans, democrats, independents, environmentalists and everybody else because I will listen to them. Now they may not be right on every issue, but at least I’m willing to listen.’’ Wood heard the outcry over the Gregory Canyon landfill, placed above Oceanside’s water table. Wood isn’t against a landfill, just not a location where it could taint the city’s water. That doesn’t concern Horn, who is for it. “We have been fighting him on that for a long time because one leak at that dump would destroy our water,’’ Wood said. “The experts said it will leak, they just don’t know the date.’’ Similar to those recognizing the construction of 2,700 homes on Merriam Mountain in rural Valley Center is a grand mistake. But Horn is deaf to the facts, instead beholden to developers funding his campaign. “I’m not a developer-hater,’’ said Wood,
and that’s proven by the maturing of Oceanside, North County’s largest city. “But there is such a thing as building and there is such a thing as sprawl. And 2,700 homes in Valley Center would be a massive footprint.’’ Wood was also instrumental in the Highway 78 Corridor general plan, a blueprint by the mayors of the cities, which hug that artery running from Escondido to Oceanside. After years of debate to get it right, only one person said it was wrong: Horn. “He came up with his plan but none of the mayors approved it,’’ Wood said. Because it was clear developers were pulling the strings, with Horn as their puppet. “Developers don’t like general plans,’’ Wood said. “They want to make sure their paid representatives, like Horn, will let them build anywhere.’’ What’s obvious is District 5 voters have a clear choice: Wood, who represents the citizens, and Horn, the bully politician special interests love to manipulate. “The standard complaint I get from people,’’ Wood said, “is the lack of communication they have with Horn.’’ Reaching Wood is never a problem. Now’s the time for Wood to expand his reach from beyond a grateful Oceanside to the entire District 5. Dick Parker is an Oceanside resident.
particular kind of carpet baggery or to lie down for it — but to seek ways, when the outrage is clear that a neighborhood will be radically shrunk, forcefully imposed upon, and changed forever, to not lie down in the face of these profit-machine businessmen builders — to endeavor to guard the people from that negative change that will become permanent. And lest you be too quick to dismiss this as simply a NIMBY letter, in fact it is more a cry of outrage against unfair legal bullying. The enactment of this law here will help destroy the very heart of the neighborhood it purports to help, regardless of the vitriolic opposition of the neighborhood. This is so twisted. It is lately being whispered more and more that the Encinitas Planning Commission staff is laying low in the face of these DBL projects now abounding in Encinitas. At the helm here is Mr. Jeff Murphy, Planning and Building Director, hired less than a year ago, who at the packed March 26 Encinitas City Council meeting seemed to evince little interest in researching ways to defend Encinitas neighborhoods from this City Mark Development group, helplessly citing only state legalities of why this was pretty much already a fait acompli. Meanwhile the building industry (read: City Mark) is being highly creative and investigating any and all loopholes and details of this law to force the Encinitas Planning Commission to its knees. So far it’s working. That is not the spirit that the citizens of Encinitas need from these unelected city staffers, whose salary is paid with resident tax dollars. (For this we have to pay?) This undermining behavior and attitude might need to become part of the conversation with our elected City Council members. There is a growing feeling
In a Franz Kafka short story whose name I am forgetting, the State passed a law allowing real estate developers to invoke a special law allowing them to tell communities how and where they were going to build on land they had bought. And the cities that try to protect its citizens from these real estate builders can be pretty much assured of being sued in court, in this case City Mark Development group. Does this sound upside down? Shame on Sacramento for voting this law in, taking advantage of communities and allowing real estate developers to force cities’ hands. This is the very definition of insanity. Here’s the Developers’ formula, in a nutshell: Buy property. Invoke Density Bonus Law (DBL). Build mini-neighborhood within a neighborhood. Make substantial profit. Get out. That’s the template. (See California Government Code Sections 65915 – 65918.) In this instance it’s a two-acre lot at Fulvia St. and Hymettus Avenue in Leucadia. This stinks. The state of California has made a huge error against the citizenry it is sworn to the betterment and protection of. And we, the neighborhoods forever changed, will have it crammed down our throats and live with the results in perpetuity. It is crystal clear that this is wrong for so many reasons. Our jewel City of Encinitas has become one of those areas Developers are focusing on as particularly desirous, and vulnerable, and seemingly not inclined to contest. Nonetheless there is still some degree latitude in the interpretation of this terribly written state law, which should and will hopefully be overturned. Until that time though, it behooves city governments and their Planning Commission staffs (Encinitas, say) to not fast-track this

in the air that there may possibly be some degree of complicity between the Developers and commission staffing at City Hall. This is a disturbing perception, to say the least, and yet to be proven wrong. Nothing is challenged, all resistance is passive from our Encinitas Planning Commission. This bodes poorly for our neighborhoods, and for Encinitas citizens. Below are a few pulled quotes from the building industry relating to the California Density Bonus Law, instructing them how to overwhelm those communities where Developers “encounter hostility from local jurisdictions ... regardless of what the locality wants.” This should be required reading for California communities wherever builders are muscling their way into our lives. And this is only a taste of what this industry is sharing with its members. If you’re smart, you’ll be worried about this seemingly well-intentioned law; it is actually a specious and cynical law. I have no idea how this was passed or whose palms were greased or arms were twisted in Sacramento, but it is probably safe to say “follow the money” here. Keep reading … This from “A Developer’s Guide to the California Density Bonus Law” — it tells you exactly how the California Building industry perceives its roll: “A developer who meets the law’s requirements for affordable or senior units is entitled to the density bonus and other assistance as of right, regardless of what the locality wants. ... The density bonus statute can be used to achieve reductions in development standards or the granting of concessions or incentives from jurisdictions that otherwise would not be inclined to grant those items. ...

HOAs respond to affordable housing project By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — An organization that represents condominium associations on South Sierra Avenue is not planning to challenge an affordable housing complex approved by City Council last month. “We won’t take any action against what the city did,” said Tom Ryan, chairman of the Condominium Organization of South Sierra Avenue, a nonprofit group formed in 1988 to “make local government aware of the particular interests, concerns and consensus of the community.” “As far as I’m concerned, that issue is over,” Ryan said. “I could be wrong but that would be up to the individual homeowners associations.” City officials worked with Hitzke Development Corporation for about three years to build a 10-unit, mixed-use development that would satisfy a legal requirement to replace low-income housing lost when a mobile home park was closed more than two decades ago. Most residents said they support affordable units but opposed the project on a city-owned parking lot in the 500 block of South Sierra because it is too big for the site and presents some safety concerns. Ryan said COOSSA representatives and a few dozen residents from Seascape Sur met about a week before the April 23 City Council meeting to review the plans. He said after 90 minutes of discussion and opinions being expressed he abstained from a unanimous decision to send a letter to the city voicing concerns about the configuration of the building and the lack of an area where children could safely play. “COOSSA didn’t take a position of opposition,” Ryan said. “There were a lot of different opinions about whether the project was worthy of support or not worthy of support. But we had concerns.” He said the issue of legal action was “raised as a general topic but not really discussed.” During the April 23 meeting, City Councilwom-

an Lesa Heebner noted most of the opposition to the project came from residents of Seascape Sur, which is across the street from the proposed development. “Everybody else didn’t send in anything,” Heebner said. “Their silence says a lot to me.” In a letter dated April 24, Seascape Sur withdrew from COOSSA, which until then represented about 895 units and 1,400 voters. Bill Gifford, president of the Seascape Sur homeowners association, said his group is meeting the week of May 12. He said he would prefer to wait until after that to comment. While there was no shortage of people who had concerns with the project, not everyone opposes it. Veronica Seay, a 34year Solana Beach resident and member of the board of the North County League of Women Voters, said state law requires all communities to provide their fair share of affordable housing and this development would be a “small step” for Solana Beach to meet that obligation. “We need to remind ourselves that local residents of Solana Beach may at some time in their lives need to find affordable housing for either the short or the long term,” Seay said. “They might be elderly, disabled, underemployed or returning veterans who shouldn’t have to leave town in order to find housing.” Former Mayor Margaret Schlesinger, who lived in that neighborhood for 40 years, also supports the complex even though she describes herself as “a fanatic on preserving open space.” She reminded residents about the opposition to condominiums being built along South Sierra, “and we learned to live with them,” she said. Ginger Hitzke, president of Hitzke Development Corporation, said she plans to continue working with nearby residents to address their concerns. “I’m hopeful when it’s built it will add to the appearance of the street,” Ryan said.
Fixing property tax bills costs $183K By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — Thousands of homeowners in the San Dieguito Union High School (SDUHSD) were overcharged on their property tax bills last fall. The cost to send out accurate bills and issue refunds: $183,400. Acknowledging its role in the error, the county Treasurer-Tax Collector office recently agreed to pay $103,400 of that amount. The district, which also admitted fault, contributed the remaining $80,000. The county miscalculated the tax rate for Proposition AA, the $449 million bond for building and technology upgrades in the district. At its May 1 meeting, the SDUHSD board of trustees voted 4-1 to approve its portion of the cost. On May 5, board President Joyce Dalessandro said the board recognized it should pay the roughly $80,000 that was spent on postage, printing and associated mailing costs. Once the error came to light, she noted, the district insisted on sending out correct bills with an explanation to reach those who had yet to pay their property taxes. An alternative course of action that was considered: issue refunds after residents paid their bills. But that likely would have created additional confusion, she said. “We wanted to fix this as soon as possible,” Dalessandro said. Documents show the county spent most of the $103,400 on computer software, programming changes and additional staff to process refunds and mail corrected bills in just two weeks. Mailing that many bills normally takes at least

two months. Michael Workman, a spokesman with the county, said in an email that the $103,400 came from the county’s general fund. He did not return a request to comment on the county’s part of the cost. For Prop AA, the county should have collected $23 per $100,000 of assessed home value. Yet property tax bills reflected
a fee of $38 per $100,000. Most property bills were about $100 higher than they should have been. Eric Dill, the district’s associate superintendent of business services, said the miscalculation stems from the bond premium being shuffled to the wrong place. Specifically, the initial $160 million bond sale generated a $7 million premium. The county should
have sent the premium to a special account so the money could pay down the bond principal. However, those funds were sent to a SDUHSD account. But the district also erred by failing to return the premium, Dill added. Because the $7 million wasn’t in the right account, the county Treasurer-Tax Collector office charged taxpayers for the missing premium. “We received funds that we shouldn’t have, and we should have caught that error,” Dill said. “And we didn’t. That’s what we’re owning up to.” Dill added SDUHSD didn’t spend any of the $7 million; that money was just accounted for incorrectly.

Human trafficking gains ground: How one new criminal element has fostered growth in sex crimes By Rachel Stine
REGION — A new element to the age old crime has made sex trafficking carried out in San Diego County more sophisticated, more widespread, and more mobile. The involvement of gangs in human trafficking is changing how the crime is being committed and the faces of victims, according to law enforcement and prosecution officials. In recent years, gangs, including those in North County, have realized how lucrative prostitution can be, and have concentrated more of their criminal operations on selling sex. Where once sex trafficking was the third most profit-
able criminal business in the county, it is now the second most lucrative illegal undertaking, above arms dealing and after drug selling, according to a report from the district attorney’s office. The underground commercial sex economy in the city of San Diego brought in about $96.6 million in 2007, according to a March 2014 study by the Urban Institute, “Estimating the Size and Structure of the Underground Commercial Sex Economy in Eight Major US Cities.” “(Gangs) make big bucks on this,” explained San Diego County’s District Attorney, Bonnie Dumanis. She and other experts spoke on the rise of human
trafficking in the county at North County Lifeline’s second annual human trafficking conference on May 3. To increase the scope and profits of their pimping operations in a certain area, gangs are teaming up with rivals gangs factions. Sgt. Joe Mata of the Sheriff’s Department explained that even local gangs with intense, historical rivalries including the Bloods and the Crips will join forces. “They will basically come together and forget about their wars and battles to get in together on human trafficking because it makes so much money,” he said. “We’re seeing the emergence of a hybrid type of gang,” said Gretchen Means, a former deputy district attorney for the county who specializes in sex crimes. Though gangs still utilize established tracks, or city blocks where pimping and prostituting is commonplace, they are also selling their victims for sex using the Internet. Law enforcement officials have realized that websites, including BackPage. com and MyRedBook.com, are rife with human trafficking advertisements. Gangs are also working together to create what’s

called a circuit or pipeline, a series of cities across the country that pimps travel to transport people for sex trafficking. Traveling to different
counties and different states allows pimps to avoid being tracked by law enforcement and, if they are caught, makes prosecutions across multiple jurisdictions more
challenging. Local gangs frequently pay certain hotels, most along major transit ways, for rooms secluded from other guests to carry out human trafficking. “If you basically see a hotel from the freeway, there is a victim being prostituted out of there,” said Dustin Nelson of the North County Human Trafficking Task Force. Via the exploitation by gangs, the amount of human trafficking carried out in San Diego County is rising. Over the past dozen years, violent gang crime in Oceanside has dropped while human trafficking has risen in the city, according to Detective Jack Reed from the Oceanside Police Department. “The department is setting records every year for (the number of) human trafficking defendants that are charged and cases that are tried,” said the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California, Laura Duffy. And with the increase of the commercial sex trade, gangs are recruiting victims from all corners of the community, tempting their targets with promises of love TURN TO TRAFFICKING ON A13
Recreation centers increase County adopts new tool for teen programs, Marshall providing emergency services Street Pool may reopen torship gives the appointSerivces will go to By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — Thanks to city council’s decision earlier this year to dedicate funds to the Youth Opportunity Program, recreation centers will be open additional hours for teen programs. Evening hours will be extended at the Junior Seau Beach Recreation Center and Melba Bishop Recreation Center for teens. The Youth Opportunity Program will provide teens from fifth grade through high school age a safe place to gather and recreate with friends. The decision to designate additional funds to teen programs was made following the fatal shooting at Libby Lake Park in March 2013. The gang shooting at the park killed two teens and injured two other teens. None of the teens were affiliated with a gang. The amount of $20,000 from the city’s

general fund will pay for two staff members to lead teen programs. Park and recreation staff hours were sharply cut back a few years ago when the city budget was trimmed. “It provides a safe place for teens to go several days a week,” Eileen Turk, parks and recreation division manager, said. Funds will provide supervised recreation and homework help for teens at the Junior Seau Beach Recreation Center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m., and Melba Bishop Recreation Center on Sundays and Mondays from 6 to 9 p.m. Extended hours will begin by June. Youth Opportunity Program funds do not support additional hours and operations of other uses of the recreational facilities. Another promising prospect this summer is the Marshall Street Pool may be open for community use during the months of June, July and August, pending council’s approval of funds. “We’re hoping for approval of Marshall Street Pool; that’s a biggie,” Turk said. City Council will decide on approving approximated $ 60,000 to open the pool for summer May 7.
those gravely disabled by mental illnes By Rachel Stine
REGION — San Diego County has adopted new means of providing services for those gravely disabled by mental illness by allowing extended psychiatric treatment for people who are committed involuntarily. The new tool may save the county thousands of dollars. An individual suffering from mental illness can be involuntarily detained for treatment in a hospital or mental health clinic. To be committed involuntarily, a law enforcement officer, mental health clinician, or doctor must determine that the person is unable to care for themselves or may be a danger to themselves or others. Currently in San Diego County, doctors have the ability to keep a person for treatment for up to 17 days. If a doctor believes that a patient will need psychiatric treatment beyond those two-and-a-half weeks, the doctor must petition for temporary conservatorship. A temporary conservatorship appoints a person to make medical and legal decisions on behalf of another person who is deemed unable to do so on their own. In cases involving the gravely mentally ill, a temporary conserva-
ed conservator and doctor the legal authority to continue involuntary psychiatric treatment beyond 17 days. The catch is that doctors do not have the full 17 days to decide whether or not to petition for temporary conservatorship on behalf of a patient, according to Dr. Michael Krelstein. Krelstein is the clinical director for the county Health and Human Services Agency’s Behavioral Health Services. Doctors need to decide about the petition by the twelfth or thirteenth day of a patient’s treatment to allow the county conservator’s office enough time to investigate the case before the petition is decided in court. According to Krelstein, less than two weeks is not enough time for a doctor to make a determination about petitioning for a temporary conservatorship. He explained that most of the time, psychiatric medications take about two weeks to fully take effect. Because of this, doctors often end up filing temporary conservatorships that later turn out to be unnecessary when a patient responds to treatment and is ready to be discharged by the sixteenth or seventeenth day of involuntary treatment. “The difference between discharging (a patient) at day 12 versus day 17, 18 is really significant TURN TO SERVICES ON A21

Escondido invests in streets, public utilities, and new parks, but some safety projects remain unfunded By Rachel Stine
ESCONDIDO — At the advice of city staff, Escondido’s City Council supported investment in streets, public utilities, and new parks for fiscal year 2014-15 on Wednesday night. Yet budget limitations caused over $2 million in public safety projects to remain unfunded. The city was able to finance about $36.4 million worth of capital improvement projects for the next fiscal year with funds from development fees, gas tax, hotel tax, user fees, and bond financing, according to the city’s accounting staff. Millions of dollars are devoted to expanding the distribution of recycled water throughout Escondido and upgrading the city’s water treatment plant. A significant portion of funds are also being dedicated to improv-
ing streets and upgrading traffic infrastructure. Some projects that residents have advocated for in recent months were also incorporated into the capital improvement project. The city will be granting $40,000 for the completion

The city is holding off on upgrades to the Escondido Police Department’s laptops and radios as well as new self contained breathing apparatuses for the Escondido Fire Department until future years. Escondido Fire Chief Michael Lowry explained to City Council that the fire department’s current self containing breathing apparatuses were bought in 1999 and do not meet the most recent standards for the devices. Mayor Sam Abed urged staff to prioritize the unfunded public safety projects before financing new public services for upcoming fiscal years. “These are basic public safety things we need to address before we create new public programs,” said Abed.
Tourism improvement numbers look good By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — After nearly four years, Del Mar’s Tourism Business Improvement District seems to be fulfilling its goal to increase occupancy in the city’s six hotels, according to a required update presented at the May 5 meeting. Since the district was approved in late 2010, occupancy has increased about 5.7 percent annually, with the average daily rate up by 20.5 percent. “Those are very strong numbers,” said John Lambeth, of Civitas Advisors, who helped develop the Del Mar program. During the past three years the district focused on improving the visibility of Del Mar as a destination rather than a pass-through entity, Lambeth said. Last year the main goal was to increase awareness of the city as a brand. “Obviously it already has a very strong brand, but it was something we wanted to increase with the funds raised through the Tourism Improvement District,” he said. There was a major effort to improve internet traffic and drive people to the dreamdelmar.com website to bring more overnight guests, which result in increases in transient occupancy and sales taxes for the city. TOT funds were approximately $1.8 million in fiscal year 2011-2012, shortly after the TBID started. Last year they increased to about $1.95 million and are projected to be $2.1 million for the current fiscal year. Lambeth said hotels are reporting about a 12.6 percent increase in revenue. The district has also provided funding to the Del Mar Village Association for assistance at the visitor center, the Winter Wonderland program and streetscape improvements such as new pedestrian directory signs, bike racks, historic building

rejuvenate, rest and re-energize at TBID hotels.” Lambeth said goals for the upcoming year include tracking actual bookings through each of the hotels and revising the current campaigns based on opportunities that were successful. He said glitches with the booking engine didn’t allow tracking in the past. “This has been a work in progress,” he said. “We’re in a far different place than we were last year.

plaques, benches and recycling cans. The TBID had a marketing budget of about $240,000 last year. Some of the money was used for advertising and public relations firms to launch the website and help with social media efforts. “It seems pretty evident that the TBID is doing a pretty good job – 12.6 percent over last year,” Noel Warner of Skiver Advertising said. “I think that … tells me that we’re doing something right. “The TBID hired us to let the world know what the TBID is doing, so it’s our job to make sure that we’re talking about all the great things that are going on within Del Mar,” he added. He said in less than four months there were 32 million impressions and 19,000 visitors to the Dream Del Mar website. “Those are some really compelling numbers,” Warner said. Of the 19,000 visitors, there were 1,000 booking inquiries, “which shows there’s really a lot of interest in staying in Del Mar.” Zenzi Communications is handling the social media efforts, with a focus on Facebook and Pinterest.

bery at a medical marijuana dispensary and that was for cash, not for the drug. She added statements from patients who use medical marijuana were very moving. She said patients who spoke about the benefits of medical marijuana explained they take the prescribed drug in a pill form or cream and do not get high from it, but get medical relief. “The medical use for MS, AIDS and cancer is huge,” Balma said. “Those who testified and spoke were A-1 people. They were all very highly educated people.” The request for the zoning change was initiated by George Sadler, director of Nature’s Leaf Collective, a mutual nonprofit benefit corporation. The nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary has been operating on Vista Way for about a year. City litigation is pending to close the dispensary. In the meantime Sadler is stepping forward to advocate patients’ rights to obtain prescribed medical marijuana, and asking for a city zoning change that will allow collectives to operate. Sadler said the yes vote is a sign of the times. “Things are changing, it’s not illegal in the state,” Sadler said. “We need safe access where patients can get it without going to the street or back alley where people are being robbed. We’re criminalizing patients.” Sadler said more than15,000 Oceanside patients have a prescription for medical marijuana. The drug was approved for medical use
in California in 1996 and patient access through nonprofit dispensaries in 2003. The zoning change provides safety for patients and the community by restricting the location and advertising of dispensaries. Sadler said the city could also limit the allowable number of dispensaries. Sadler said unjust stigmas associated with medical marijuana use are beginning to be dismissed. “To see what we deal with on a daily basis swayed it (the commission’s vote), physical people sitting in front of them,” Sadler said. “It wasn’t the stoners everyone assumes is doing this. It’s time patients have access to this medicine. “Safe access is the most important part,” Sadler added. During the meeting over 30 speakers addressed the commission. Richard Greenbauer, city senior planner, said 60 percent of the speakers supported the zoning change. Speakers included individuals with breast cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder, and emphysema who use the medical marijuana with successful health results. Greenbauer did not have comments on specific reasons city staff opposed zoning for medical marijuana dispensaries, but said staff will bring the commission’s action to city council and continue to recommend against a zoning change. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. The official decision to make the zoning change will be voted on by city council at a date yet to be determined.

Retired O’side police chief voted in for two more years of service By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — Recently retired Police Chief Frank McCoy was voted in to serve as police chief for two more years by City Council on May 7. City Manager Steve Jepsen recommended that McCoy stay on to lead the department and mentor his successor. Following the meeting McCoy said he is humbled and honored the city manager asked him to stay on for two more years. He said his goals are to focus on crime issues the city faces, and mentor all qualified police management staff to become
percent pay increase next year. The position was advertised as paying $194,000 for a new police chief. Sanchez said a 4 percent salary increase would be more acceptable, especially when other city staff have endured a pay freeze. McCoy retired in October and has served as an interim police chief during the search for his replacement. Over the past six months McCoy collected retirement benefits and an hourly wage. During the search process two Oceanside police captains expressed
the next chief. During the meeting City Council members commended McCoy for improving city safety. “The decisions made by the police chief are pretty critical on how the city’s moving forward,” Councilman Jack Feller said. “We’re making great strides in the way we’re reducing crime.” Councilwoman Esther Sanchez also praised McCoy, but cast the one no vote to rehire him, due to the salary increase McCoy will receive. McCoy is hired back to the full time position at $208,304 a year, plus a 6.5
interest in the position, and were being considered along with other candidates. McCoy said he recommended all three qualified Oceanside police captains for the position of chief. During the meeting City Council members did not directly comment on why an in-house or other candidate was not hired, but Councilman Gary Felien said the city manager had to balance input from several advisory teams. His statement led to speculation that not everyone was in agreement on who should fill the position. Sanchez said there are several highly qualified in-house candidates, and she knows of one in-house candidate who could fill the position. Mayor Jim Wood said he is happy McCoy is sticking around, and added he is disappointed the backgrounds of some of the top candidates did not check out favorably. Due to the matter being a personnel issue no details were shared. Jepsen said his focus is to hire an in-house candidate for chief in two years.

Council agrees on some elements of new City Hall By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — As the process to build a new civic center moves forward, council members reached consensus on a few elements at the May 5 meeting. There was general agreement that the facility should be one story with the City Hall and Town Hall as adjoining buildings. But Councilman Don Mosier said his colleagues should remain open-minded since two-story buildings tend to be more energy efficient. Last month council members were presented with two opinions on how much space is needed for the complex. They ranged from 8,395 square feet to 10,837 square feet for the City Hall and 4,313 square feet to 5,046 square feet for the Town Hall. The major differences were in the circulation allowances, or the area for hallways, corridors, partitions and wall thicknesses, and the size of indoor public space for counters and storage. While council didn’t nail down specific sizes, they agreed the Town Hall should have seating for a minimum of 100 people with about 75 additional public parking spaces. They all favored a 15,000-square-foot plaza, which would be large enough to accommodate the farmers market. “I’m all for large plazas,” Mosier said, adding that the farmers market “is a critical part of community.” He said a 15,000-square-foot plaza on a 66,000-square-foot lot is not unreasonable. He added that he would prefer tables and chairs that can be moved rather than concrete benches or stools. “I don’t think we need to overbuild this,” Councilman Al Corti said. “I don’t think we should overbuild this.” Council members also agreed to slow the process down a bit and perhaps add another workshop before presenting some alternatives to the public. They especially did not want to rush into crafting a ballot measure for the November election. Language for that would have to be finalized by July, which Mosier said was too short of a timeframe. “Let’s say flexible,” he said about the schedule. Resident Bill Michalsky agreed. “Don’t rush this process,” he said. “The community has to chew on this. … I want a new building as much as anyone but I think it needs to be kept in scale to be successful.” City officials are just trying to get a ballpark figure on the necessary space so they can come up with cost estimates. No plans have been created yet.

Encinitas considers ways to grow urban agriculture Council takes interest in easing backyard chicken rules By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — The council plowed the way for new agriculture initiatives on Wednesday night. For one, council members agreed to take a closer look down the line at an urban agriculture ordinance, similar to what the city of San Diego approved two years ago. That legislation loosened restrictions on chickens, goats and bees in residents’ backyards. “I thought San Diego did a very good job with theirs,” Kranz said, add-
ing he’d like to see if that city’s ordinance fits Encinitas. For instance, before San Diego’s ordinance, chickens were only allowed if kept farther than 50 feet from surrounding homes. Now, up to five chickens are permitted if the coop is outside a house’s setback. For those with 15 to 25 chickens, the coop has to be at least 15 feet from the property line. Businesses like City Farmers Nursery have stated the new rules provided a shot in the arm to agriculture and the local food supply. Currently, Encinitas’ city code specifies up to 10 chickens are allowed in residential areas, though they can’t be within 35 feet of neighboring homes. Kranz said the city
should consider easing the distance, but emphasized a local ordinance wouldn’t apply to roosters. Wednesday’s meeting, part of a series of strategic planning sessions, was dedicated to all things land use. Still, council members spent a significant part of the evening discussing agriculture. Mayor Teresa Barth asked for the city staff to analyze the state’s Urban Agriculture Zones Act and report back to council. The law gives landowners a property tax break on the condition they dedicate three-acre lots or smaller to growing agriculture for at least five years. The goal: transform barren lots into vibrant farming hubs. Passed last year, cities must opt in to the program for it to take effect.

Mingafest, a community coming together for the ‘benefit of all’ By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — The first Mingafest was held at the Oceanside Museum of Art on May 3. “The word ‘minga’ literally means for the benefit of all,” Mike Curtin, Rotary Club of Oceanside president and event co-chair, said. “There is no word to express that collective ideal in English. It was the inspiration, to bring people together to work for the benefit of all.” The event was true to the spirit of its South American name, and provided camaraderie and an opportunity for nonprofits to work together and mutually benefit from the fundraiser. “It’s a really wonderful afternoon gathering for our community,” Daniel Foster, Oceanside Museum of Art executive director, said. One admission price allowed participants an unlimited selection from seven wine and beverage companies, five microbreweries and eight eateries. Participants also enjoyed live music and took part in interactive group art projects. The festival was held as a collaborative effort be-
tween the Oceanside Museum of Art and Rotary Club of Oceanside. Both organizations hold annual spring fundraisers, and thought it would be beneficial to organize a joint event. MainStreet Oceanside and other nonprofits participated by selling tickets and receiving a percent of funds raised. Nonprofits also shared information about their organizations at the festival. “The event was created around the vision of bringing together the community and strengthening the community,” Foster said. Collaboration between nonprofits is taking hold in a number of ways. The museum is focused on building community partnerships to exhibit, involve and educate people in the arts. It is currently involved in a dozen active collaborations. “We’re on a mission,” Bridget Ayers, Oceanside Museum of Art director of marketing, said. “Oceanside Museum of Art is definitely working with local artists, businesses and the community to focus and grow the art scene in North County.” The Rotary club is also
exploring new ways to connect, recruit members and serve the community. The club recently celebrated its 90th anniversary. While it’s motto, “service above self,” still holds true, the club is dusting off its daily operations. Curtin said the tradition of requiring attendance at every meeting does not work for all members. To accomadate members, regular attendance is encouraged, but leeway is allowed. Rotary club fundraising events are also being revised to draw bigger crowds. Instead of a spaghetti dinner, the Mingafest was held this year. “Our old signature fundraisers were not performing,” Curtin said. “We need to step up to the modern world of fundraising.” The festival also honored past Rotary club president and event co-founder Larry O’Harra, who passed away this March. During the event O’Harra was recognized for his vision and spirit. Curtin said the inaugural Mingafest was upbeat and joyful, just like O’Harra had envisioned it.
Landowners who lease to a farmer would benefit from a reduced property tax assessment based on the per acre value of irrigated cropland in California. This was $12,000 per acre in 2012, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. However, the law does have restrictions. Notably, homes aren’t permitted on properties looking for a tax reduction. In a presentation to the city, Eric Larson, executive director of the San Diego County Farm Bureau, said urban agricul-
ture is taking off. “It’s really catching hold and becoming more popular in urban settings, especially as communities like Encinitas reach buildout,” Larson said. “People want to see some greenery around them and have a chance to get their hands dirty.” Encinitas is poised for urban agriculture in many ways, Larson said, citing the city’s climate and locals’ passion for growing food. But he added there are barriers. Starting a commercial farm typically
requires a minor-use permit and other fees, which run approximately $1,000. And additional permitting is necessary for farms that lie idle for more than 100 days. The council also agreed to hold city meetings with farmers to better understand issues facing the industry. Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar said many growers have left the area in recent years. Feedback from the meetings would help inform future agriculture policies and potentially retain farmers, she added.

Concert at Belly Up will benefit veterans courtyard By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — Belly Up has teamed up with Solana Beach and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5431 to raise funds for a courtyard to honor service members. Donnie Edwards, a former linebacker with the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs, will host the May 19 event that begins at 5 p.m. and features The Fabulous Pelicans, a classic rock band. The cost is $25 per person.
Plans for the Veterans Honor Courtyard at La Colonia Park are complete, but $200,000 is needed before construction can begin. To date, about $16,500 has been raised. Recognition for veterans was previously included in a $4 million improvement plan for La Colonia Park and Community Center, but that project is on hold indefinitely because of a lack of funding. Money was to come from the city’s redevel-
opment agency, but Gov. Jerry Brown abolished those agencies in 2011. Council members approved plans for what was originally slated to be a veteran’s memorial in 2012 after a community group asked if the project could move forward apart from the La Colonia renovation. Councilman Mike Nichols said the name was changed because it was not necessarily meant to be just a memorial. It will honor all U.S.

Firehouse Subs makes donation By Tony Cagala
ENCINITAS — To help fill in some of the funding gaps in the city’s firefighting budget, Firehouse Subs, using funds from its Public Safety Foundation, donated more than $11,900 to the Encinitas Fire Department. Encinitas Deputy Fire Chief Mike Stein, with other city officials, was on hand on Wednesday at the Firehouse Subs location on N. El Camino Real, to accept the donation, which is going towards
the purchase of a thermal imaging camera and other accessories for Fire Station No. 6 in Olivenhain. “Smoke robs us of our sight,” Stein said, adding that there are situations during a structure fire when you can’t even see your hand in front of your face. With the new thermal imaging camera, which has already been ordered for the station, firefighters will be able to use the piece of equipment to essentially see
through the smoke. By doing that, they can see whether, during a fire, there’s someone in the structure, or even where hot spots might still remain once a fire is under control. Firehouse Subs created their nonprofit Public Safety Foundation nine years ago. Since its inception, they’ve been able to donate $9 million to first responders and public safety organizations in 40 states and in Puerto Rico.
veterans living and deceased, as well as those who are currently serving. The courtyard will feature a stone veneer wall with military seals behind a reflecting pool. Water will “sheet” over the wall into the pool. As proposed, there will also be a flagpole with a dedication plaque, a central medallion with a “In honor of those who served” statement, seating and a main entrance with decorative pilasters and an iron arch. Personalized 1-foot square tiles will be installed in the courtyard to honor service members. The cost is $300 each.

ENCINITAS — What’s known as the Encinitas sign arcs over Coast Highway 101 and D Street. Now, the southern portion of downtown has a landmark welcoming people. Residents and city officials celebrated the debut of a new 8 foot-by-10-foot sandblasted redwood sign near the Santa Fe Undercrossing on May 6. Part mosaic, part mural — two artists joined forces for the project. Terry Weaver, one of the artists, said he “pretty much accidentally” became involved with the piece. About three years ago, he created a mosaic of the Encinitas city seal. But the artwork didn’t have a home, so Weaver walked into the Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association office one day in hopes of finding a location. Impressed by the piece, Encinitas 101 representatives recommended affixing the artwork to the downtown sign, which was only in the planning stages at that point. “When we saw this mosaic, we said, ‘holy moly — we have to include it,’” said Dody Crawford, executive director of Encinitas 101. Spearheaded by the Encinitas 101 board, the sign has been in the works for more than five years. Most of the funding came from an $11,000 county Board of Supervisors community development grant. “This sign dresses up downtown and let’s people know what’s in store for them when passing through,” Crawford said. “It’s a great way to welcome them.” To Weaver, whose other miniature mosaics adorn downtown Encinitas sidewalks, the sign represents the best parts of Encinitas — a city he holds dear. “I’ve lived in Hawaii for 26 years now, but I grew up in Encinitas, and my heart is still here,” Weaver said, noting that he flew into town just for the unveiling.
“It’s really a fitting place for the mosaic,” Weaver added. Initially, the artists weren’t exactly sure where to place the piece. Weaver approached Don Hansen, who owns Hansen’s Surf Shop and the surrounding land. “I knew him years ago and he was very gracious in accommodating the sign,” Weaver said, noting one of Hansen’s classic surfboards makes a cameo in the mural. Bob Partlow, the other

artist, is no stranger to murals. He painted a welcome sign in Cardiff, and he owns the local company Bob Partlow Sign Artist. While an experienced painter, he noted creating pieces takes him longer than most artists. That’s because a car battery explosion injured one of his eyes, destroying his depth perception. “It doesn’t detract from how much I enjoy art,” Partlow said. “I’ll think every mural is my last, but I just keep on going,” he added. He welcomed the challenge of capturing downtown Encinitas, opting to depict local staples like the Boathouses, Encinitas Child, La Paloma Theatre, peeling waves at Swami’s Beach and the Santa Fe underpass. “I love doing things like this for the community,” Partlow said.

Don your dresses for the Mother’s Day swim By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — The annual Mother’s Day Fancy Dress Swim will be held on the north side of Oceanside Pier May 11. During the event women, dressed in gowns wade into the ocean hand in hand to raise funds to fight malaria. The idea behind the Mother’s Day fundraiser is to prevent mothers from suffering the loss of a child from malaria. Marlaine Paulsen Cover initiated the local fundraiser six years ago. She said she was shocked by the staggering statistics of how many children die from malaria each day, especially when a $4 insecticide-treated bed net could help prevent deaths. The number comparison used by Cover to describe the impact of the disease is seven jumbo jets of children die from malaria each day, which equals more than 3,000 children a day. “We’re definitely making huge progress,” Cover said. “They are working to come up with a vaccine as well. The nets are a huge lifesaver.” Cover said the grassroots fundraiser allows 100 percent of donations to be
given to the Against Malaria Foundation, which encourages world swim events to fund purchasing and distributing bed nets. Cover said she remembers the inaugural year of the Oceanside event, and pushing the button on her computer to post the fundraiser. She said her hope was that others would join her. “Thank God people did swim with me,” Cover recalls. Cover has experienced some personal and professional changes since the first fundraiser began. She has moved to Oregon, and returns to Oceanside each year for the event. This year her daughter and mother will join her in the Mother’s Day swim. Cover also published a book, “Kissing the Mirror: Raising Humanity in the Twenty-first Century,” and began the Parenting 2.0 group a few years ago. She said the book was written as a manifesto to the parenting group on how to teach life skills to your child, and is based on truths she knows as mom. The Parenting 2.0 group has grown to 4,500 members worldwide. This September Cover

will be giving Rob Mather, founding member of the Against Malaria Foundation, the Parenting 2.0 Global Presence Humanitarian Award. The award will be given to Mather at the Parenting 2.0 Talks in Dublin, Ireland. Cover said honoring Mather with the award is personally significant to her. The Against Malaria Foundation has raised more than $22.9 million and supplied more than 6.7 million bed nets since 2003. The Mother’s Day Fancy Dress Swim at Oceanside at Pier will be held 9 a.m.

SDSU women win club water polo championship By Bianca Kaplanek
REGION — The San Diego State University women’s water polo team topped the University of Michigan 10-9 in a double-overtime, sudden-death game May 4 to become the school’s first National Collegiate Club Champions. Meghan Harder scored the game-winning goal with less than 7 seconds on the clock in the final game of a three-day tournament in Geneva, Ohio. “It’s still kind of sinking in,” coach Jamie Cassidy, a Solana Beach resident, said the day after returning
home. It was the Aztecs’ second appearance in the national club-team championships since joining the Collegiate Water Polo Association six years ago. Last year the team placed fifth, losing to California Polytechnic State University. When Cassidy began coaching four seasons ago, there were 10 girls on the roster, and the team finished “in the middle of the pack” in the CWPA’s Pacific Coast Division. “That first year was The No. 2 seeded San Diego State University women’s water polo club team, coached by Solana Beach pretty rough,” she said. Jamie Cassidy, left, topped the University of Michigan May 4 to become the school’s first National This season, with 21 resident Collegiate Club Champions. Courtesy photo players, Cassidy was able to roster two teams and is the sole coach for both. “We’ve really grown in size and dedication,” she said. The girls were undefeated in league play and had only
one loss in a tournament during the approximately 20-game season. “I knew right away we had a very good shot at going to the championship tournament and going
deep,” Cassidy said. “But you don’t know about the other teams you’ll be playing.” Cassidy, who was named coach of the year for SDSU club sports, said she
had about seven girls who could have played Division 1 but opted not to for various reasons. “They really advanced everyone to the next level,” she said. “That pushed everyone to work harder.” She said camaraderie is also a key to the team’s success. “They are all friends. They all live together,” Cassidy said. “When anyone wins (an award) the girls are so excited for each other. There’s no jealousy and no one’s upset. They realize they needed each other for this to happen. Their one common goal was to win it all. It didn’t matter who scored the winning goal.” The roster includes Morgan Klingfus, Kathryn Enstad, Nina Escobedo, TURN TO

Minus a sweet start, Towers occupies the hot seat
sports talk jay paris The VG Donut’s customer looked familiar outside the Cardiff hangout. His maple pastry and coffee had a sensation he recognized, too. Both were warm to the touch. The seat that Kevin Towers was sitting in outside of the donut shop might have been feeling a little warm too. “We haven’t met the expectations and that’s why we’re all on the hot seat,’’ said Towers, the Arizona Diamondbacks’ general manager. Towers is well-known in these parts: he pitched for MiraCosta College, was a longtime Padres executive, and yep, once lived the
Oceanside house made famous in “Top Gun.’’ “I love North County,’’ said Towers, the proud owner of a Leucadia home hugging the coastline between Stone Steps and Beacon’s. “It’s being able to live at the beach and just the vibe, the people, the restaurants. “Being in this game and the stress you have, it’s nice to hang out in Leucadia for a couple of days and look at the ocean. It’s very therapeutic and good for the mind.’’ While Towers embraced the soothing rays when Arizona visited the Padres recently, he’s under fire in the Valley of the Sun. His fourth season of constructing the Diamondbacks’ roster has much venom pointed his way. Losing 22 of the season’s first 30 games does that. “It’s pretty rough over there; it’s way different than from here,’’ Towers said. “We haven’t had a losing season since I’ve been there

and they are calling for your head. The expectations are very, very high.’’ So is Towers’ payroll, and that’s something that isn’t familiar. As the Padres general manager from 1996-2009, Towers was asked to do more with less. He advanced to the 1998 World Series, won four NL West titles, and had a few seasons that if he was an angler, he’d throw back. But he built his reputation as a keen talent evaluator. While being an astute dumpster diver with the Padres’ limited funds. With the Diamondbacks, his payroll tickles triple digits. And it’s not easy for managing partner Ken Kendrick to digest that the $115 million Towers spent hasn’t produced. “He’s a type of guy that is going to provide you the resources to be successful,’’ Towers said. “But if you don’t get it done, there is going to be hell to pay. “It’s different than what we were used to here; we never had those resources. But Ken has been incredibly gracious to me and I feel bad we got off to such a horrible start.’’ Arizona’s not rising for many reasons. Among them are injuries to starter Patrick Corbin, reliever David Hernandez and slugger
Mark Trumbo. But all teams have ailments and slumps. That the Diamondbacks were hit before May is unsettling to their brass, fans and Arizona’s media. “The baseball season is 162 games long and everybody is going to have a bad streak,’’ Towers said. “Sometimes it’s in April, sometimes it’s in July or September. But it is probably magnified more in April. But actually that is the time to have it because you have a chance to get better as the season goes along.’’ Towers longs to be on board when, and if, the worm turns. But he’s a realist; ditto his superiors, Kendrick, and club President Derrick Hall. “I really don’t know what’s going to happen,’’ the forthright Towers said. “I have good enough relations with both guys but they are pretty candid. It’s ‘Hey, K.T., at some point if it keeps going this way, we got to do something.’ “I get it.’’ Maybe the Diamondbacks get it in gear instead of a getting bogged down wrestling the Padres for the cellar. Neither squad has done squat, the difference being Arizona is spending some $30 million more. That’s got the popular Towers receiving the same advice from his countless baseball friends: “Hang tough.’’ Towers’ goal is to avoid hanging 10. “I don’t have a lot of time now to surf but I have my boards,’’ Towers said. “I guess if I get fired I’ll be out there all the time.’’ Here’s to those waves waiting until the offseason. We’ll tell VG’s to keep the maple bar and coffee on hold as well. “My hope,’’ Towers said, “is that we can turn it around.’’ Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Get in the game as a referee REGION — Love the game of football and want to give back to the youth of San Diego County? Want a part-time hobby that also pays? San Diego County Football Officials Association is looking for new referees. Sign-ups are now underway for the 2014 football season. Interested participants are invited to instructional classes that start at 7 p.m. July 9 at West Hills High School, 8756 Mast Blvd., Santee. As a first year official, you will be refereeing youth Pop Warner and AYF on Sat-

Jessie Espera, Madeline Schwartz, Bailey Wickliffe, Mary Abary, Meghan Harder, Kelli Boling, Tara DeRosier, Kathryn Andrews, Natalie Parker, Addison Gosslein, Jenny Waters, Allison Tester, Carolina Conway, Kim Fraisse, Nicole Ryder, Agy Socha, Bridget Poland and Allie Jackson. All are Californians except Tester, who is from Texas. San Diegans include Escobedo, DeRosier, Andrews, Waters and Ryder. Several coach at area high schools such as Canyon Crest Academy and Scripps Ranch and Grossmont College. Parker referees high school games. Cassidy said the athletes play to stay in shape, meet new people — especially the freshmen — or make lifelong friends. Her goal is to have them look back and realize the benefit of being part of the team. “I want to help them grow,” she said. “I try to help

them with internships so they leave as well-rounded individuals. I want them to know they have someone in their corner when they get out of college.” To that end Cassidy plans to bring in guest speakers — most likely female professionals — to guide the players with future career goals. “I wish I had something like that in college,” she said. Cassidy currently works at Pear Sports, a Solana Beach company that produces a “mobile training intelligence” system. She coaches at night and is paid, but not a lot. She played water polo and swam in high school and college, but the sport is more of a hobby now, she said. “I enjoy it. The money’s not important. I just want to give back,” she said. The team receives a small stipend from the university, but club members, unlike Division 1 athletes, pay to play. The cost is $250 for the first semester and
$300 for the second semester, which is club season for women. Teams don’t know until about three weeks before the tournament if they will be going so the last-minute plane tickets were pricey — $780 each. Other expenses included hotel rooms, transportation, food and an entry fee. The ladies had to come up with at least $250 each. Fundraising efforts took in $10,000 and included donations from parents and Division 1 water polo players. “Some girls didn’t go because of work, the money and finals,” Cassidy said. “But I don’t want money to be a problem.” With only two graduating seniors, Cassidy is looking forward to another successful season next year and is hoping to secure sponsors to help fund future trips Ohio. Anyone interested in sponsorship information can contact Cassidy at email@example.com.

clinically,” said Krelstein. “This is right at the time period where the medicine might kick in.” “Conservatorship is good for those who need it, but it also involves court. It’s a long process,” said Shannon Jaccard, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) San Diego’s CEO. “It should be used if it’s appropriate, not just if you need more time in a hospital.” The unneeded filings of temporary conservatorships also racks up costs for The Office of the Public Administrator, Public Guardian, and Public Con-

and the side effects of the vapor or secondhand vapor have yet to be determined. But county officials, residents, and local cities have voiced concern over the safety of e-cigarettes. The number of calls to poison centers about consumption of e-cigarette liquids that contain nicotine rose from one per month in September 2010 to 215 per month in February 2014, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than half of those calls involved children under five years old. Citing the statistic, Supervisor Dave Roberts called e-cigarettes a “major public health concern.” Opponents to the regulations asserted that residents are using e-cigarettes to quit

In the aftermath, correct tax bills were sent to about 74,700 property owners. By that time, about 17,000 had already paid their bill. They’ve since been reimbursed, according to Dill. The $80,000 was drawn from a district insurance fund, not the general fund or Prop AA, Dill said. Trustee John Salazar, who cast the lone vote against approving those funds, said on May 2 the county was ultimately responsible for checking the information and mailing the bills. Thus, it alone should bear the responsibility. “They’re the experts, and they’re the ones who should get it right,” Salazar said. Also, he said the public was kept in the dark about the mailing costs. When the miscalculation first surfaced, school administrators should have sought more input from the board and residents on options and corre-

T he C oast News servator. To address these issues, theSan Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday to adopt California’s Welfare and Institutions Code 5270. Code 5270 allows doctors and mental health clinicians to continue treatment for those suffering from mental illness for an additional 30 days without a temporary conservatorship. Due process and hearings still occur to protect the patient’s rights during that period. Furthermore, a 5270 does not have to be filed until the seventeenth day of treatment, which allows more time for medications to take effect and for doc-
tors to determine if a patient requires further psychiatric treatment. “It makes a big difference,” said Krelstein. Eliminating unnecessary filings of temporary conservatorships could save the county between $130,000 and $220,000 in conservator costs, but will increase costs for the courts by about $151,000. It also benefits patients, who can avoid having a temporary conservatorship on their permanent record. The move allows more flexibility for patients, their families, and doctors, Jaccard said. “We think this is a really good thing for the county,” she said.
smoking by gradually decreasing the amount of nicotine in the vaping liquid they inhale. They also claimed that the effects of secondhand vapor are harmless and that the vapor hardly smells. The Supervisors acknowledged that the FDA has not made a final ruling on the health effects of e-cigarettes but asserted that there was enough available research to convince them of the risks of using the devices. “I think we did our homework. We didn’t just blindly run into this just because some other city has done this,” said Supervisor Ron Roberts. Supervisor Bill Horn stated that the County “may be getting ahead of the research,” but argued that policies prohibiting the smoking of e-cigarettes in public places were practical.
Supporters of the e-cigarette bans voiced concerns that the electronic smoking devices particularly appeal to youth. E-cigarettes are a gateway to other drugs for young people, particularly high schoolers, according to Zack Jafek, a member of the San Dieguito Alliance for Drug Free Youth. A recent graduate of Torrey Pines High School, Jafek said for teenagers, there is not as much of a stigma around e-cigarettes as there is for conventional cigarettes. Carol Skiljan, a commissioner of First 5 San Diego and board member of the Encinitas Union School District, mentioned that the flavored vape liquids target young consumers. “They even had chocolate flavoring,” she said. The Supervisors passed the new e-cigarette regulations unanimously.
sponding expenses for fixing the error. “That happened behind closed doors, and the board and public weren’t involved,” Salazar said. Relatedly, Doug Perkins, who serves on the Del Mar Union School District Board of Trustees and is a candidate for the San Diego County Board of Education district 5 seat, criticized the district for burying the $80,000 on its May 1 agenda. The expense is listed with other purchase orders on page 44 of the May 1 agenda packet. Like other purchase orders, there’s only a short description of what the $80,000 is for: services and operating expenses. Purchase orders are listed on the agenda’s consent calendar, which is reserved for routine items that the board doesn’t need to discuss. Given that the error affected so many people, Perkins said in an interview on May 2 the district should have broken down the
$80,000 expense in a separate agenda item. Because it wasn’t fully disclosed on the agenda, the public wasn’t notified and didn’t have the chance to speak to the matter at the meeting, he added. “Homeowners expect transparency with their tax dollars,” Perkins said. Dill said action items on the agenda are for contracts, but invoices like the $80,000 fall under purchase orders. He added that district Superintendent Rick Schmitt contacted each board member prior to the May 1 meeting and walked them through how district administrators arrived at $80,000 as the district’s share. Ultimately, the board agreed to pull the $80,000 from the consent calendar and consider it separately from the other invoices, he added.

he added. The TBID is funded by a 1 percent fee paid by hotel guests — a “very competitive rate” compared to other districts, Lambeth said. It was formed, as was required, with unanimous support from the city’s hoteliers and City Council. Oversight comes from a board of directors made up of hotel owners. It will automatically
expire in 2015. Hotel owners must repeat the multistep process to re-establish the district, but if approved it will be valid for 10 years. “It took a while to get this started,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “I’m anxious to see what happens in the next year because now I think it’s fully operational and we’ll get a valid result in a year or so.”

like it’s rusting, but what it’s actually doing, Espana said, is it’s protecting itself. “It actually builds up a layer of protection, so it looks like it’s rust, but it doesn’t allow the salt air to corrode it.” Panels of perforated stainless steel, something they wanted to have a fabric-like look to it, interwoven between the steel beams, helps to manage the balance of light and shade coming in. “Once all the landscaping grows and the planting comes up, we think it’s going to look beautiful because that Corten will have a deep reddish rust color and with the color of the coastal plants there, I think it’s going to compliment the landscape quite well,” Espana said. Pamela Slater-Price, then-County Board of Supervisor for District 5, recommended city funds be used for the project. Slater-Price, who serves on the advisory board of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, said, “The Birdwing is another great addition to our magnificent San Dieguito River Park, which will make it easier for groups of visitors, both school age and adult, to spend quality time and ob-

ter hostility from local jurisdictions are provided several tools to ensure that a required density bonus is actually granted. If a developer successfully sues the locality to enforce the density bonus requirements, it is entitled to an award of its attorneys’ fees. The obligation to pay a developer’s attorneys’ fees is a powerful incentive for local jurisdictions to voluntarily comply with the state law density bonus requirements, even when the jurisdiction is not in favor of its effects on the project. The density bonus provides one method for developers to improve the economics of their project while still complying with the inclusionary housing requirements. While there are some local agencies which believe that inclusionary units do not qualify for density bonuses, it is generally understood that the density bonus is intended by state law to be a powerful financial tool to help developers achieve the inclusionary housing requirements. Obtaining greater density can help the developer of any type of project bring costs and financing sources into line by putting more homes on the land. ... The incentives and concessions to be provided by the local government can provide a helpful way to modify development requirements which may stand in the way of a successful project. ... the Density Bonus Law is unquestionably a useful option for housing developers trying to make financial sense of their projects in today’s economy.”

The city of San Diego issued a $340,000 grant to get the project started. “We committed to an additional funding amount of $160,000 so that they’d be able to build this great classroom,” said Trish Boaz, executive director of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy. The conservancy is a nonprofit organization that, as a part of their mission, helps to support the River Park and education. As for what the Birdwing means for the commu-
nity, Boaz said: “It’s just a place for people to gather and feel like they have ownership of the River Park.” The River Park will manage the site, Carter said, adding that for the public that wants to host events there, there will be a permitting process because some things will require ranger assistance. The permitting process will be available online and there may be times when a fee is associated, Carter explained. The grand opening celebration will take place May 13 at 10 a.m. A host of free public activities and events begins May 17. For a full list of events and times visit sdrvc.org.
And there’s plenty more outrageous material where these quotes came from. Who are these people? This gross manipulation of the law is unconscionable and even skirts the lines of morality. It is complete self-interest being barely disguised as altruism. This can not and should not stand. Where are the representatives looking out for our neighborhoods? This is beyond bizarre. It is Kakfa-esque. Orwellian, even. The City Mark Development builders are ready to come in to Fulvia and Hymettus in Encinitas and change our world, whether we like it or not. Their barely-contained smirks at the March 26 City Council meet were more than mildly discernible as Planning and Building Director Murphy shot down every attempt that the City Council proposed at ameliorating this travesty about to be committed. This was my first time attending a council meeting. I think we all know that this “affordable housing” law, heavily influenced by developers, in reality is something of a sham. Its repeal really must occur. When you examine the loopholes that allow the one token affordable unit in this shoe-horned overdeveloped cluster to be traded, bought out of this loop, rented for a period, then later sold at full market value – well, then it’s hard to find any benefit to the community and the supposed recipients of the affordable dwelling. The building industry has found new life with this Density Bonus Law!
The people protecting this law are not our friends. How bizarre, twisted, absurd laws such as become voted into law starts out benignly enough, I imagine, until the real measure of it begins slowly to reveal its terrible wrongness. And then it is usually too late. It is right now not too late for Encinitas, though City Mark Development is hunched and waiting for legal approval to insert their nine houses onto a two-acre lot. And they will have built without regard to neighborhood reaction or feeling, holding a few “due diligence informational meetings” with neighbors, just for the record. The opposition has only grown; there are no converts. This ham-fisted intrusive State of California law is not serving its constituents in this case — we in the neighborhood it implodes, nor the low-income people in whose name it purports to be representing. It is the opposite. In other words, there is no one being served by this DBL except the Developmental (builders’) community, who have been give carte blanche by the State of California, in this instance City Mark Development. What is wrong with this picture? There is trouble in Mudville, folks, and it’s about to start slinging. Franz Kafka wouldn’t have blinked an eye. The wealthy manipulate the laws; it has ever been thus. Follow that money! May the Force be with us. Stephen Keyes is an Encinitas resident since 1992.

‘Locke’ is a film driven for success By Noah S. Lee
With Tom Hardy at the wheel, “Locke” proves to be a moving road film. It’s easy to imagine the word “complexity” going hand-in-hand with an equally elaborate film or book; however, there are simpler ways of exploring the troubles we face. Director Steven Knight’s “Locke” succeeds in delving into the inner workings of someone owning up to a past mistake, without having to resort to giant sets and a grand scope. Even with its small budget and limited location, this film loses none of its emotional resonance. Construction foreman and dedicated family man Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) abandons his post in Birmingham, England and heads to London, intent on taking responsibility for a mistake he’d made. As he drives through the night, he receives numerous phone calls and tries to resolve problems — both professional and personal — that jeopardize the life he has cultivated. To say “Locke” is a technical tour de force would be correct; this film receives a perfect score for its ability to create emotional gravitas via striking cinematography and fluid editing. As a result of combining atmospheric imagery with dynamic camerawork, director Knight achieves a minimalist look that results in a polished aesthetic. “Locke” takes place on a darkened highway, and the colors you’re likely to find in such a setting are black and yellow. But

Knight uses this vivid contrast of shadow and light to his advantage, emphasizing the desolation surrounding Hardy throughout his journey, as well as the demons haunting him within the confines of his car. Kudos to the director for employing the environment’s low-key color palette to establish the film’s mood! Throughout this riveting car ride, Hardy has to juggle phone calls from both home and work, all of which combine to intensify the irrevocable course his life is traveling. This “no turning back” implication appears in the reflections seen in the windows and rear-view mirrors, fading in and out to remind the audience of Hardy’s inner turmoil. We have cinematographer Haris Zambarloukos to thank for his use of reflective shots to illustrate this intriguing psychological aspect of the film. Add that to the seamless editing process by Justine Wright, whose organizing of the scenes within Hardy’s BMW results in a
film possessing an appropriate documentary feel, and “Locke” has a slick appearance that enhances and benefits from the cast performances. Speaking of Tom Hardy, he instills a poignant magnetism in the titular role, and his performance gives the audience all the more reason to stick with his character every step of the way. All emotions are visible, both on his face and in his voice. He succeeds in creating a character with whom anybody could empathize, and nobody else could have pulled off the same task. He brings an unmistakable somberness to “Locke” that will resonate with moviegoers. The supporting actors are only heard and never seen, but this unconventional technique works in the film’s favor. Each phone conversation reveals different sides to the actors’ characters, and they shine in their collective ability to captivate the audience on multiple levels. Olivia Colman is the
reason why Locke’s life unravels in the dark of the night, and she receives top marks for imbuing her other woman with pain and despair. Ruth Wilson does a brilliant job of conveying Locke’s wife’s whirlwind of emotions, including but not limited to shock, anger, and sadness. Andrew Scott brims with energy in his role of Locke’s subordinate, interspersing the tragedy with a few bits of comedy to help the audience release tension. Tom Hardy’s performance alone is a good enough reason to pay to see “Locke,” and if a quiet experimental drama is right up your alley during this summer blockbuster season, consider this film the ideal choice for alternative entertainment.

Confidence, compromise put Perri on right track By Alan Sculley
The classic saying is musicians have their entire life to write their first albums and six months to make their second albums. The truth of that saying is one reason there is such a thing as the sophomore slump. Rock history books are littered with second albums that paled in comparison to the first album, and often having to rush to capitalize on a hit debut album is the culprit. Christina Perri had the exact opposite experience with her first two albums. Her 2011 debut, “Lovestrong,” had to be done in a frenzy — in 33 days with recording being done in two studios at the same time. Perri’s newly released follow-up, “Head Or Heart,” wasn’t so rushed. “I ended up counting,” Perri said in a late-March phone interview. “It was one year and 78 days.” The reversal of the usual story for Perri’s first two albums was a product of her highly one-of-a-kind breakthrough onto the music scene. Her meteoric arrival happened in 2010 after a friend emailed a demo of Perri’s song “Jar Of Hearts” to a choreographer for “Dancing With The Stars.” Against all odds, Perri’s song was chosen to be played on the show, and after getting a huge response, Perri — at the time unsigned with little
happening with her music — was invited a week later to perform on the show. It was the first time the soon-to-be-ex-waitress in Los Angeles had ever performed in public. “I was on television in front of 60 million people that day,” Perri said. “Yeah, I grew six grey hairs on that first performance.” Posted hastily on iTunes,” Jar Of Hearts” sold 220,000 downloads in the days that followed Perri’s performance on “Dancing With The Stars,” and she quickly landed a deal with Atlantic Records. And that’s how Perri’s first album got put on the fastest of tracks to get recorded and released. “Album one was insane,” Perri said of “Lovestrong.” “Thirty-three days, two studios, songs that I didn’t even have the proper time to arrange or work on. We were chasing the single. And it was just so backwards.” Then it was on to touring, and after 27 months of touring — with a break part way through to undergo vocal cord surgery — Perri finished her touring cycle for “Lovestrong” in October 2012. Right then she decided was she would take the necessary time with her second album. But there were compromises to be made, too, as Perri sought to satisfy herself creatively, yet also give Atlantic songs that were suited to a mainstream pop market where TURN TO PERRI ON A23

Rancho Santa Fe couple readies for opening night By Christina Macone-Greene
REGION — A Broadway style production of “Annie Get Your Gun,” is arriving to North Park Theatre and being championed by the San Diego Musical Theatre. The husband and wife team of Erin and Gary Lewis, both the producers and executive directors of the San Diego Musical Theatre, are counting the days until opening night. “Irving Berlin’s ‘Annie Get Your Gun,’ is one the most amazing scores that he wrote,” Erin Lewis said. “It’s a fun show and also what we call a family show. We thought the community would enjoy this since it has not been done for a while.” The musical runs from May 9 to May 25 and tickets are already sought after. Much of this has to do with the fact that two Broadway veteran stars are performing the lead roles. Beth Malone, will play the role of Annie Oakley, while Steve Blanchard portrays the character of Frank Butler. “When we decided to do the show we knew we needed Broadway veterans,” she said, adding how Blanchard lives in New York and has come to the west coast for this role. Lewis has also watched the rehearsals and describes the cast as fantastic. “They are just amazing,” Lewis said. “And the choreography by John Todd, who is also directing, is fun. John is adding some new ‘wow’ moments.” Lewis is quick to point out that she and her husband are not the creative types. They bring their business background to this musical theatre organization and hire the artistic people around them. This business savvy duo, though, often collaborates with their directors. “Gary and I decide on the show, find the set, the costumes, and then have the auditions; and, once we get all that done, our director and choreographer will put the show together,” Lewis said. Lewis shared that their

influence in musical theatre actually started with their daughter when she was 11 years old. As a young girl, she had a passion for acting and singing in musical theatre, and even today, is still on stage. Lewis pointed out how both she and her husband enjoy musical theatre, and realized there wasn’t any in their area, except for national tours that came into town. “There wasn’t any full time year-round musical theatre in San Diego,” Lewis said. While San Diego is very rich with live theater, the couple decided they wanted to pitch in and do just musicals. Though it was hard work, they are glad they did. For those who have
never been to North Park Theatre, Lewis calls it a gorgeous venue. Built in 1928, it is rich with character. Much like Broadway, at the North Park Theatre, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. San Diego Musical Theatre is labeled as an award winning nonprofit which brings vibrant live musicals to the community and is known as the local way to see Broadway. “You really don’t want to miss this show because it’s going to be fun and professional with our Broadway veterans,” Lewis said. “It is Mother’s Day month and a perfect show to bring the entire family to see.” For more information about “Annie Get Your Gun” or to purchase tickets, visit SanDiegoMusicalTheatre.com or call (858) 560-5740.

breezy dance tunes with big beats are what works on radio. One trade-off came in songwriting. Atlantic Records wanted Perri to work with outside songwriters (people like Martin Johnson, David Hodges and Jamie Scott, who have written hits for other artists, of course). Perri agreed, but wanted to write on her own first. “I did my part, but I knew, too, look I’m on a major label. I’m not going to fight against what they want because I want them on my side,” Perri said. “I compromised with them. I said, ‘Hey, I’ll give you two months (of co-writing) if you give me three months.’” Another compromise for Perri came during recording. On “Lovestrong,” she had insisted on using only real instruments played by real musicians. But for “Head or Heart,” Perri opened the door to using programmed drums, synthesizers and computer-generated tones — a move that put her sound more in line with the synthetic sounds that dominate top 40 radio. The finished album does a good job of bridging the gap between the singer-songwriter feel of the first album, while injecting more of the dance-
able beat-driven pop that is more suited to today’s commercial radio sweet spot. “Head Or Heart” is still mainly a singer-songwriter album, with ballads like “Trust.” “Run” (two dramatic gems), “The Words” and “Human” setting the tone for the album. But there are also up-tempo tunes (“Burning Gold” and “Shot Me in the Heart”) with big, danceable choruses, while “Be My Forever” is a bouncy pop confection with guest vocals from Ed Sheeran that sounds like a hit single in waiting. Perri is introducing her new material on a spring tour, and she feels the nine tours she did behind “Lovestrong” helped her learn a good deal about
performing, and she’s now considerably more present and comfortable on stage. The biggest improvement, though, is a result of her vocal surgery. “Without a doubt, the biggest jump in confidence I had and the difference between the first album and this album is the new voice,” Perri said. “It’s seriously unstoppable. “That gave me so much freedom, so much growing room to do and to like literally enjoy myself for the first time,” she said. “So this tour pretty much embodies all of that. I’m having a blast. I’m not thinking too much. And I think the audience is going to see how happy I am.”

Putting your best face forward
have never worn much make-up. It is not, I assure you, because I am a natural beauty. It has been because I was completely unmotivated, or, as I like to categorize it, low maintenance. But those habits developed when my face was firm and my cheeks were always pink. I actually had such high coloring I never really needed lipstick. My favorite story is when a camp counselor pulled me aside and chastised me for wearing lipstick. I scathingly pointed out that I wasn’t. My lips were just chapped. Then, one day you look in the mirror and, gee, things have changed. I realized with a jolt that my complexion had all the color and texture of a piece of Swiss cheese. The bags under my eyes were my best feature, oh my stars, I looked exactly like my mother … after no sleep and a sweaty morning in the garden. Fine, I thought. I’ll just start using a bit more makeup. As I critiqued my efforts with eyeliner, concealer, highlighter and mascara, I found all this scarcely made a dent. Contrary to my mother’s mantra and my teen-aged training at John Robert Powers school of beauty (where we crossed our legs at the ankle and “made down” rather than making up), I needed to crank it up more than a notch. I was game, but when I tried to change my makeup habits, I realized the canvas was considerably looser on its frame.

The murals of Encinitas Some are hidden, others overt, but the murals around the city highlight the distinct talents of its artists By Yeshe Salz
Special to The Coast News ENCINITAS — When was the last time you walked through Encinitas and stopped to look at a mural? Chances are, it wasn’t too long ago. Encinitas is strewn with murals — some hidden behind buildings and on nearly every street corner. Private businesses sporting painted entryways have become the new norm and you can even find city-owned mosaics and art pieces in select areas across town. Yet, despite its encouragement of the arts, Encinitas doesn’t have a budget for public art. “We have a maintenance budget for the public art in the city’s collection, but we do not have funds in place for public artwork,” said Encinitas Arts Administrator Jim Gilliam. So where is all of the art coming from? Some of it originates from organizations like the 101 Artists Colony, and more and more should be arising from the city-based Encinitas Commission for the Arts. “The Commission for the Arts is working on a ‘Percent for Arts Policy’ and we plan to bring it to the City Council in the summer. But we are just at the beginning stages right now,” said Gilliam. But most of the art you see on a day-to-day basis comes from somewhere else — the artistic eye of private home and business owners across Encinitas. It’s nearly im-

possible not to spot a mural or two when you stroll by storefronts up and down Coast Highway 101. What makes the city such a hub for privately owned public art and mural work? Jax Meyers of Paint Encinitas took a stab at answering the question while leading a walking tour of all of the murals in the city. “I think it has a lot to do with the fact that we have a lot of local businesses here who want to hire artists to paint their walls. And we
have a community of artists here, a huge community of art patrons here, and just a big community of creators,” Meyers explained. “When you get a lot of different artists in, you get a lot of different flavors from all around… so you’re making this place a center for a culture of art. And that culture is what Paint Encinitas revolves around.” Just four months ago Meyers founded Paint Encinitas, an organization dedicated to beautifying Encinitas one wall at a time. “Our

mission is to creatively unite the community, artists and local businesses together to manifest visual arts in the public domain.” TURN TO MURALS ON B9

RSF School District replies to San Diego County Grand Jury report
By Chuck Shepherd
By Christina Macone-Greene
Price of Friendship “Whoever said, ‘Money can’t buy you friends’ clearly hasn’t been on the Internet recently,” wrote The New York Times in April, pointing to various social media support services that create online superstars by augmenting one’s Facebook “friends,” Twitter “followers” and Instagram “likes.” The reporter described how, by paying a company $5, for example, he immediately acquired 4,000 “friends,” and had he splurged for $3,700, could have had a million on his Instagram photo account. Such services have been around for two years, but earlier, cruder versions (sometimes, just unmonitored email addresses) are now sophisticated “bots” — groups of computer code created on algorithm farms in India and elsewhere — that “behave” on social media with original messaging (often “drivel,” wrote the Times) as if they were real people. The Entrepreneurial Spirit We All Scream: (1) In April, Haagen-Dazs announced it will introduce two new ice creams (thankfully, only in Japan): carrot orange (with bits of pulp and peel) and tomato cherry (made from tomato paste). (2) A South Wales ice cream maker (“Lick Me I’m Delicious”) announced in April that it has perfected an ice cream containing about 25mg of Viagra per scoop (though it is not yet generally available). Marketing Challenges: (1) In January, London’s Daily Telegraph found three British companies in competition to sell deodorant supposedly made especially for women’s breasts. According to one, Fresh Body, “We’re replacing ‘swoobs’ — dreaded boob sweat — with smiles.” (2) Owner Christian Ingber recently opened a sandwich shop in Gothenburg, Sweden, named “A F***ing Awesome Sandwich.” An American expatriate told Stockholm’s The Local news service that Swedes think English “curse words” are “cute and charming.” Science Fair Medical Marvels: (1) China’s Chengdu Commercial Daily reported in March that Liu Yougang, 23, finally had surgery to remove that whistle he had swallowed when he was 9. He had been experiencing worsened breathing — and had been making “shrill whistle sounds” nightly after falling asleep. (2) London’s Daily Star featured Sarah Beal, 43, of Arley, Warwickshire, England, in a March story demonstrating her skin condition in which writing words on her skin makes it puff up for about an hour before it recedes. It is referred to by doctors as the “Etch A Sketch condition” (formally, dermatographia), and despite occasional pain, she described it as “cool” and a “party trick.”
RANCHO SANTA FE — In an effort to increase the awareness and effectiveness for school safety, the San Diego County Grand Jury issued a report on March 24 entitled, “School Security: There Is No Greater Purpose.” It was sent to the San Diego School Districts. In its summary, the Grand Jury felt because school violence still “remains a viable threat,” the principle reason behind the report was to implement safety initiatives for its students, teachers and administrators. Out of nine recommendations, the Rancho Santa Fe School District replied to the San Diego Grand Jury regarding two of them. The district’s legal representative, Richard Currier, Esq., has been their external general counsel for 25 years. Currier pointed out that from time to time, the Grand Jury focuses on various topics, will determine whether or not to investigate them, and if so, they then issue a report. Currently, school security is the report topic. Currier shared that seven of these nine recommendations by the Grand Jury were already being implemented such as identifying key personnel for school security; a school security plan for emergency response and preparedness; security training programs with outside support services such as local law enforcement, and, website access for Crime Stoppers and Stu-
dents Speaking Out. While the Rancho Santa Fe School District takes school security highly seriously, Currier said, they did disagree with two of the recommendations. In fact, Currier already issued a letter to the Grand Jury regarding their two recommendations. One of which was 14-10: Develop and publish a Security Awareness and Prevention Program that is geared specifically for parent
thought its description was vague. Rather than having parents inform the district about abnormal behaviors, Currier said, the concern was more to be informed by the parents if a child were to make any threats with regard to the school or anyone at the school. The other was recommendation 14-15: Develop a plan for initiating school-to-parent communication channels that encourage parents and others to come for-

participation to help them identify abnormal behaviors of their children and the resources to turn to for help. “Superintendent Delaney and I discussed this at some length, and in regard to all these recommendations, we thought it was quite frankly, ‘over the top’ to have a program that is geared specifically to parents to participate in it to identify abnormal behaviors and inform the district about them,” said Currier, adding how he
ward and report behavioral problems that could result in violent behavior. “Our thoughts are that we don’t need a plan for that, maybe we just inform parents if you think there is a problem, pick up the phone and call the district administrator,” Currier said. Currier went on to say that sometimes there is an emphasis that a whole plan, procedure or policy is needed. But in some cases, all that is required is informing
parents to contact the district if there is an issue or problem they need to be aware of. “In my letter, it is indicated that the Rancho Santa Fe School District is a small elementary school district, with only one school site,” said Currier, noting how the report represented a once size fits all approach which didn’t pertain to their district. The Grand Jury responded to Currier’s April 11 letter, requesting a more detailed reply to the disagreed recommendations. Currier is in the process of doing that now and conveyed that the school district has always made safety and security its top priority. “We were lucky enough to build a new school, where we were able to implement and add safety features to the new school that our old school did not have,” Superintendent Lindy Delaney said. Additionally, they also implement regular safety and security drills. Having the sheriff’s substation across the street is another benefit. “And not only are they responsive, but they are proactive and the Rancho Santa Fe Patrol is also a great help to us as a school and we can call on them anytime,” said Delaney, noting how fortunate they were. For Delaney, school security is always a work in progress. The district has done a lot in regard to school security, Currier said, while still trying to maintain the friendly, rural nature of the school.
Citizen satisfaction survey gets green light from city council By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Three months after agreeing to conduct a survey to gauge residents’ satisfaction with city services, council members agreed 4-0 at the May 5 meeting on the method that will be used, a decision that will cost about half of what was originally budgeted. Council authorized staff at the Feb. 3 meeting to begin the process to conduct a survey, something that hasn’t been done since 2006. But in April, when they were slated to award a $15,000 contract to Probolsky Research, council members concluded the methods that were going to be used would garner relatively useless information. City staff worked to create several other options, which were presented May 5. With Mayor Lee Haydu absent, the remaining council members opted to conduct the survey using inhouse staff as well as a consultant for a cost of $8,400. Kristen Crane, assistant to the city manager, said that plan is similar to the proposal council opposed in April, but it should provide more in-depth data. The consultant will work with staff and City Council to develop the questions, create and host the Internet portion and analyze and report the data. City staff will design, print and mail postcards and coordinate marketing for the Internet survey. Phone surveys will also be conducted. This method will allow residents to share their thoughts on how the city is
performing and result in a more efficient use of city staff time. The least expensive option – conducting the survey completely in-house — was estimated to cost about $5,000 but it would have been time-consuming for staff and lacked the expertise of a consultant. Crane said another option would be to not proceed with the survey and use the $15,000 to launch a webbased community engagement model for continuous input. For example, the city could pose a question and provide education. Residents could then weigh in with their thoughts, which council members could use for decision making. “These types of surveys are considered by local government managers to be a really effective tool to help

gauge what the community’s priorities are, how we’re doing with different services,” Crane said. In March, Encinitas agreed to launch this type of community outreach using a service known as Peak Democracy. Councilman Terry Sinnott said the suggestion “is a valuable thing for us to work towards.” “I would still, though, like to get a quick snapshot of how we’re doing this year,” he said. Councilman Don Mosier agreed. “I see an advantage of doing that in the future, but it’s really a little bit different than what was envisioned by this survey,” he said. Mosier said using city staff and consultants would
likely still produce a survey that results in some uncertainty. “But we’ll get a sense of what the satisfaction level is,” he said. “And we just have to remember that we don’t take it too seriously, but we’ll probably see the big problems if they’re out there.”

Coast Highway, Oceanside’s proposed vision plan includes changes to business layouts and the roadway. The catalyst for changes is the Coast Highway Vision Plan that was adopted by the city in 2009. The vision plan focuses on streets that accommodate vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic, and encourages mixeduse development. The vision plan considers access to transit, adding roundabouts to ensure continuous traffic flow and improving parking access to businesses. It also upholds the belief that improvements to downtown traffic flow and streetscape will draw more business to Oceanside. “The corridor study gives the vision plan teeth,” John Amberson, city proj-
ect manager, said. “It gives the city a direction. Without a plan it’s willy-nilly. It will be a self-perpetuation of what we have now.” The May 15 workshop will provide an overview of the vision plan, share feedback gathered at the February workshop, and collect further input to develop corridor plan options. During the meeting participants will have the opportunity to share their input at a series of feedback stations. The goal of the workshop is to gather input to develop four alternate corridor plans, which will be presented to City Council for final selection. Amberson said the four alternatives would include the complete vision plan, no change to the corridor and two alternatives in between those extremes. In addition to community workshops, a steering committee has been formed to provide further, focused input. The committee, which includes representatives from businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, MainStreet Oceanside, Visit Oceanside, the police department, the fire department, North County Transit District and other
stakeholders met in March and will meet again this summer. Amberson said gathering input from community workshops and the steering committee is a way to double down on input and ensure feedback is representative of the community at large. Four corridor plans are expected to be developed by the end of summer. The feasibility of each plan will be analyzed, and presented to City Council before the council selects a plan. Analysis will include traffic impacts on Coast Highway and adjacent streets, and take into account people’s need to commute and tolerance for traffic waits. Implementation of the final plan will take 15 to 20 years. “It’s not going to happen overnight,” Amberson said. “It will be phased in over many years.” Road changes will follow developers purchasing downtown property and initiating business layout changes. The adopted corridor plan will serve as a guideline. The Corridor Study Workshop will be held at 5 p.m. in City Council Chambers.
Funding for River Park is restored By Tony Cagala
REGION — Had the funding not been restored to the San Dieguito River Park, members of the Joint Powers Authority Board would have been working on a plan b to establish their budget for the upcoming fiscal year, which would most likely have included layoffs to park rangers. But after the submission of 1,500 petitions delivered to San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and San Diego City Council members on May 1, and meetings between the city and JPA members in April to discuss the cost benefits of the park, Faulconer agreed to restore the $254,000 funding. “I’m glad that we won’t be looking at immediate layoffs,” said Susan Carter, deputy director of the San Dieguito River Park. Faulconer released a letter on May 2 to County Supervisor Dave Roberts, who is also the chair of the JPA Board. The letter agreed to reinstate the funding to the River Park for one year, though it also included several points of concerns that the city wants addressed by the JPA. “I think it’s a very positive step, and I’m really pleased that the mayor and the City Council understand the value of our partnership that we’ve had over the last 25 years,” said Roberts. “We’re going to look at all of the different items that were raised; we met with the mayor and two of the council members, Council member (Sherri) Lightner and Council member (Mark) Kersey, and we had heard about the issues
so we want to bring them back to the full board to discuss in public.” Lightner and Kersey also serve on the JPA board. Carter did have some confusion about the city’s concerns, but she added that the JPA board would look to address them possibly at their May 16 meeting. Having just finished the Birdwing Open Air Classroom, off of Via de la Valle, which is slated for a grand opening May 13, the River Park’s next large project will be the building of a ranger station near the Birdwing structure, but closer to the California Bank & Trust building, explained Carter. “We’re also working on extending the Coast to Crest trail, east of El Camino Real, and then further in eastern back country, and we’re working in Pauma Valley to extend the trail,” Carter said. Carter added that funding from the city was steady until April 2010, when they eliminated all of their funding to the JPA. “We went for threeand-a-quarter years without any funding,” said Carter. Former Mayor Bob Filner reinstated the funding in 2013 for the 2014 fiscal year. During the more than three years without the city’s funding, the River Park was able to keep going without laying anyone off due to a combination of things, including their executive director retiring and continuing to work pro bono, as well as other member agencies increasing contributions.

RSF Senior Center Saddle up for the Rancho West fest recognizes Personal History Awareness Month By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — The month of May not only means springtime, but also an opportunity for people to be proactive in learning about themselves and family members during Personal History Awareness Month. The RSF Senior Center decided it was a perfect opportunity to bring Debbie Broida, a personal historian onboard, to guide seniors through her very unique program, Memory Magic. In essence, Broida’s passion is to help people exercise their memories by having them think about past experiences which paint a picture of who they are. And for many, this could be the start of creating their personal memoir. “A memoir is more than just facts and people don’t have to be intimidated by not being a formal and bona fide writer in order to write a memoir,” Broida said. “All people need is their personal experiences and stories.” Broida’s plan is to have participants get into a group setting and start sharing stories, describing the experience as a wonderful community building scenario as well as a fun one. She’ll also utilize different props to jar memories such as electric rollers, the original alarm clock before it went digital, a clothesline, and various fragrances which may spur a recollection. These group sessions and storytelling time can actually trigger recall. “My ultimate goal is that I am able to help people find three, four or five memories that they are interested in turning into stories and getting away from thinking that it has to be formal,” Broida said. She continued, “I want them to share their stories, as if they were telling them to their grandchildren while they were tucking them into bed at night.” This is the first time Broida has brought Memory Magic to the RSF Senior Center and is looking forward to helping people realize that they do have stories that can be saved forever. “There have been studies that children who know about their ancestors have higher self-esteem than those who don’t —

your grandkids and great grandkids will know who you really are,” she said. Sharon Wax has worked with Broida and said she provided her exactly what she needed. “Debbie offers an incredible opportunity for anyone to express themselves and be able to pass on their essence to their loved ones,” Wax said. “I'm excited for Debbie, and think it's great that she's providing such a valuable service to our community.” The Memory Magic kickoff date is May 7 and will last four weeks. These afternoon Wednesday meetings last for two hours and they are free. And for those who may be apprehensive about not being a writer, Broida wants people to know it’s not important. Everyone has an interesting story to share, and to approach the writing as if one was having a conversation with someone special. “Your family wants to hear these stories and it’s great to leave them a legacy,” she said. To learn more about Memory Magic at the RSF Senior Center, please call (858) 756-3041.

LEGALS Coast News legals continue A19 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.

A newcomer to the city’s arts world, Paint Encinitas provides a fresh initiative towards the pursuit of the arts. “We want to be the leading pioneer of the public arts movement by organizing accessible visual and live art events that keep our town fresh, noteworthy, and funky to its roots,” Meyers said. “It’s funny because we are already seeing that move to Encinitas from other cities,” she added, “We’re really getting a melting pot here in Encinitas.” Skye Walker, a contract graphic designer illustrator and muralist from Big Bear, Calif. is one of those artists who has gravitated towards Encinitas’ art-conscious culture. Walker spent eight years working as the art director and senior designer of major companies such as Rip Curl and prAna. However, he dove back into the world of mural work when Whole Foods in Encinitas hired him to paint the inside of the store. “The Whole foods job kick started me back into murals and now, that’s all I want to do; I’m in love with it,” Walker said, “It’s different than just painting a picture that goes in someone’s home. When you do a piece for the public eye, it takes up a space where you have to stop and look at it and it takes

you into it — people take notice of that.” Local artists like Walker and art patrons like Meyers, see the value of public art and are dedicated to bringing it to the community. “There is so much value in a mural. It’s supporting the arts and it’s supporting local artists and hopefully making a space more beautiful,” said Walker. “For me, murals kick start a lot of creative ideas and help to inspire
others.” Walker’s mural work can also be seen inside Cafe Ipe, the Encinitas Whole Foods parking garage, Pandora’s Pizza and Mesa Rim Climbing Jim. Adding to the melting pot of the Encinitas art scene, a Honduran artist called Santos set up shop in his art gallery in Leucadia four years ago and is also contributing to North County’s art world. Inside his gallery, situated next to Surfy Surfy,
you can find his paintings stretched big and wide across enormous canvases reflecting bright colors and bold patterns. “I’m doing all of these murals because I know that ultimately that’s where it belongs. It belongs large and it belongs directly on walls,” he said Santos painted the mural outside Cafe Ipe and has also launched a program called “Mural Campaign,” dedicated to bringing arts to the streets

and the schools of Encinitas and North County. “I started to do my mural campaign because arts are beginning to be removed from schools and I want to counteract that.” Because of their socially active and publicly present nature, artists like Santos and Walker have become fixated upon the
creation of mural-work. And they aren’t the only ones. Artists across Encinitas are convening and partnering up with local businesses to create a more beautiful, unique and socially engaged city. “Encinitas supports the arts,” Meyers said, “and that’s what’s most important.”

New wines, a new villa and all that jazz in Temecula taste of wine frank mangio
friend of mine recently passed me the official site map for Temecula that I speculate could have been printed in the ‘80s. It showed 12 wineries, some 25 less than are counted today in the winegrower’s brochure, an amazing growth record. In the late ‘80s, John and Sally Thornton, shortly after gaining ownership of Culbertson Winery, founded the Thornton Winery Champagne Jazz Series. “We needed an attraction to sell more wine and I thought a concert series would do it, and it did,” said John. Like the Rites of Spring, the Champagne Jazz Series has again arrived for its 26th year. A stellar lineup of nationally known artists perform at outdoor concerts each weekend from May 17 to

Potatoes taken to new heights at Spudz
tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not often that something new comes along that rocks my culinary world with its originality, simplicity and pure taste sensation. That happened recently when I stumbled upon Spudz Potato at the Leucadia Farmers Market. The first thing I noticed was the line, always a good sign. That and the six guys in the booth working like a finely tuned assembly line cranking out this unique concoction. Who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like hash browns right? Think of hash browns filled with a variety of savory treats then grilled to a crunchy goodness with the option to top it with a perfectly fried egg or chili. Believe me folks, this is a taste and texture experience like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had before and as you will learn below, they have already been discovered by a VC who has plans to bring them to the masses so experience them at the intimacy of your local farmers market while you can. Spudz was founded by Robert Aguilar and I caught up with him recently to learn more about his very cool venture that is on the verge of exploding. : You have created something totally original with Spudz. What is the history of the dish and how did you end up forming the business? The history of the dish comes from a city in Southern Brazil called Curitiba. In this city they call it Swiss batata and it was made mostly by the poorer people because its main ingredient was the potato andÂ they could take any leftover food and place it in the middle of this kind of potato pie. In Brazil the dish is made in theÂ kitchen using
two medium sized frying pans, you place the shredded potato inside the pan like a pie crust leaving room for the food you would like in the middle while taking the other pan, also filled with shredded potato, ready
to place onÂ top of each other to create this beautiful golden brown pizza looking dish. I came up with the idea to start this business almost by luck. My wife Erika, who is from Sao Paulo, Brazil, and I were onÂ our last two days of vacation in her home town of Santo Andre.
Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always up to try anything new and she asked me if I wanted toÂ try this Brazilian potato dish, I said sure and away we went. I did not think about that dish again until about February 2012, when a friend of mine, who is from Curitiba, Brazil, invited us over to his houseÂ for dinner and to my surprise was making Swiss batata! We must have made over 10 different types that night and I said to my friend â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know we could sell these right?â&#x20AC;?Â Two months later in April of 2012 Spudz was born.Â : Your combination of crispy hash brown type
potatoes with different fillings and toppings makes so much sense, but your preparation makes all the difference. Tell me how these are prepared, the different menu options and more about that special cast iron pan you use. How we came up with our menu options was at first just picking stuff that we like to eat. I love carne asada burritos and I decided thatÂ was going to be my first creation. We call it the Speedy Gonzales and we use a quality beef and all fresh vegetables for the pico de gallo, add in some avocado, cheese and don't forget to top it with my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chili recipe. The Egghead was our next one and who could say no to a single dish with golden brown shredded potato, warm delicious bacon, cheese and a fried egg on top? We wanted something for the non-meat eaters and create the Popeye, which is a mixture of ricotta cheese, sundried tomatoes and spinach. Now the â&#x20AC;&#x153;PANâ&#x20AC;? is truly the secret to our success, it gives our dish such a great look and it works perfectly every-time. At first we tried using the frying pan

Pendleton Snipers take first place in National Competition By Sgt. Valerie C. Eppler
As snipers, we’re really proud Marines. We’re proud of what we do and we like to think we Marines are the best snipers out there.”
CAMP PENDLETON — West Coast Marines earned first place overall during the 43rd Winston P. Wilson Sniper Championship hosted by the National Guard Marksmanship Training Center held at Fort Chaffee, Ark., from April 19 through April 26. Sgt. Daniel Ramos and Sgt. Shaun Garvey, instructors with the Sniper Basic Course, Advanced Infantry Battalion, School of Infantry West, bested all other teams during the shooting and tactics competition. The Sgt. Daniel Ramos competition tested the skills, Instructor techniques and procedures of 17, 2-man sniper teams “Consistency from dayfrom the different branches to-day and event-to-event of service. was the key element in win-
ning the competition with an overall score of 1040, which was 30 points more than the second place team,” said Ramos, an Orange Park, Fla. native. The teams competed over five days in 16 different events using a variety of weapons. The Marines used the bolt-action M40, the semi-automatic M110 and the M9 Beretta, said Garvey a Browsburg, Ind. native and primary marksmanship instructor. Ramos, who has never previously competed in any shooting or tactics competition, said this competition validates what they do every day; what they train to do. Ramos and Garvey did not conduct any additional training for or prior to attending the event. They relied solely on their job training and skills. “Even as technology advances in warfighting, there is still that need for a man on the ground,” said Garvey about the importance of this competition as it relates to the Marine Corps. “This competition helps us evaluate what we are teaching to the students about what technological advances are

currently out there and what other services are doing. This competition was the first time Garvey and Ramos shot together as a team, beating the other teams who had not only shot together before but included the winners of last year’s competi-
tion. Ramos, who was recommended by his command to attend this competition because he was the high shooter in his recent Urban Sniper School class, said this competition relied heavily upon the fundamentals.
“As snipers, we’re really proud Marines. We’re proud of what we do and we like to think we Marines are the best snipers out there,” said Ramos. “We are going to these competitions and proving our training and curriculum really do work.”
Firefighters help Pendleton remember 9/11 By Sgt. Valerie Eppler
CAMP PENDLETON — The fire engine Rescue 5 was brought to the main side parking lot on April 25 by the Remembrance Rescue Project volunteers to raise awareness and encourage discussion about the events of 9/11. Rescue 5 responded to the calls for help at the North Tower of the World Trade Center after the airplanes flew into the towers on 9/11. The engine, which was decommissioned from the FDNY and purchased by the project in 2011, travels between host fire departments across the country not only as an educational tool, but also as a memorial to those firefighters who
were killed in the line of duty that day. The families of the fallen firefighters encouraged the display of this engine across the country as an educational tool, but also as a memorial to their family members. While the families encourage questions about and contact with the engine, they had two very special requests of the firefighters who display the rescue engine. The first is that only firefighters be allowed inside the engine, and the second is that no one photographs the inner, rear section. That is an area where many of the family members went to make peace with the loss of their loved one, said Kevin Shin, the Fire Captain of the Culver City Fire Department, the
department that was hosting the Rescue 5 engine. The project is made up of off-duty firefighters dedicated to helping individuals, especially youth, understand the events of 9/11 and the significance of the firefighters’ involvement, said Kevin Shin. Shin, an active duty Marine at the time, said he visited ground zero about a week after the attack. That visit really affected him he said because he had a sister living in New York. He went on to join the fire department a few years after leaving active duty, which he has now been a part of for 10 years. He said he is proud to be a part of this project which allows the public to gain a different perspective, the firefighter’s perspective, on the
events of 9/11. John Crook, the fire department division chief here, said when he sees this engine it gives him goose bumps. He said he was on duty in the Air Force the morning of the attack, and those memories come rushing back to him when he sees the red, white and yellow paint on the truck, which for him holds special meaning as a firefighter. The Remembrance Rescue Project is still a young project, but they plan to keep the engine moving around the country to be displayed by other fire departments according to Shin. The Project strives to keep the memories alive of those lost on September 11th and all firefighters killed in the line of duty every year.

cines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Hospital personnel will be collecting the potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs in front of the hospital main entrance on Mercy Circle from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information contact the Naval Hospital Security Department at (760) 725-1602.

La Jolla Village News LA JOLLA — Agreeing to disagree was the outcome of an April 23 stakeholder meeting of an ad hoc committee of the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA), which failed to reach a consensus on whether new restrictions are needed to curb excesses with shortterm La Jolla vacation rentals. The five-member Ad Hoc Committee on ShortTerm Vacation Rentals comprises three neutral LJCPA members — chair Helen Boyden, Jim Fitzgerald and Bob Steck — as well as citizens representative Mike Costello and Heather Weiermann, a spokesperson for shortterm rental property managers. The group has been charged with studying issues such as excessive noise and violations of neighbors’ privacy, which some claim have been plaguing local neighborhoods, and ultimately returning to the LJCPA with recommendations on what could — or should — be done about them. But a meeting of the minds on the short-term vacation rental question thus far hasn’t found much common ground. On the one side are angry residents in single-family residential zones calling for stricter controls over rentals. On the other side are property managers who maintain all that is needed is better enforcement of existing rental rules, such as the police CAPP program in place for troublesome residences. “We’re a time-limited committee,” noted Boyden, who added that public comment on rental issues vetted at previous meetings was now closed. Boyden said any recommendations coming out of the ad hoc committee will be reviewed and voted on by the full LJCPA.
Angry residents want stricter controls on existing rules that govern conduct amid “problem” renters Courtesy rendering
Those recommendations would then be forward to the city for further consideration. Any such recommendations could conceivably result in changes to the city municipal code governing short-term rentals following a long governmental review process. Committee member Jim Fitzgerald read a list of vacation rental “problems,” which he suggested the board ought to be considering in making its final recommendations to the LJCPA. Fitzgerald’s list included enforcement of current regulations, site-specific problems with “party house” events, frequent turnover of vacation renters and conversion of single-family neighborhoods into “tourist zones.” Committee member Mike Costello wanted to add a couple items to that list, including “inadequate enforcement of current regulations” and “intensity of use” of vacation rentals. Costello pointed out intensity of use issues are reflected in frequency or duration of problematic behavior at affected sites. “There is an absence of on-site management with short-term vacation

rentals,” Costello noted. Vacation rental property managers present at the ad hoc meeting advocated enhancing the powers that police have in enforcing the Community Assisted Party Program (CAPP), which allows residences causing noise and other complaints to be cited and ultimately punished with fines for excessive noise or partying. Residents at the meeting largely spoke out against beefing up the CAPP program, arguing it has failed to be a real deterrent to bad behavior at short-term vacation rentals because it places the burden of proof on neighbors, requires police to actually witness infractions and is time consuming to carry out. “It is an ineffectual way to control rentals,” commented one resident. Weiermann questioned whether applying different rules for different types of rentals (shortversus long-term) was desirable or valid. The public dialogue over short-term vacation rentals will continue at the next meeting of the ad hoc committee, set for May 28, at 5 p.m. at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St.
Cyclists participating in Bike to Work Day May 16, can make a “pit stop” as they pass through the city of Carlsbad, from 6 to 9 a.m. at the seawall at Frazee Beach at Carlsbad Boulevard and Pine Avenue. While supplies last, cyclists will receive snacks, beverages and other giveaways. Bike to Work Day, organized regionally by SANDAG, promotes bicycling as a commuter choice. Courtesy photo

Support the arts at Spring Fest OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation will hold a special fundraiser, “Spring Fest‚” 1 to 4 p.m. May 18, celebrating its 25th anniversary at The Kern Gardens, home of Oceanside City Councilmember Jerry and Blake Kern. This is OCAF’s first fundraiser that benefits itself, instead of its particular projects as it had been traditionally done over the years. Attendees will enjoy live entertainment, champagne and hors d’oeuvres and coffees paired with chocolates from So Rich Chocolates, a local confectioner. Admission is $40 for single ticket in advance, $70 per couple in advance or $50 each at the door. For tickets, call (760) 433-3632, email email@example.com, mail checks to OCAF, P.O. Box 3054, Oceanside, CA 92051, or purchase online at ocaf. info/. For a quarter of a century, Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation/OCAF has pledged its support of the
arts community. The brainstorm of Mayor Larry Bagley created the Oceanside Museum of Art and OCAF has developed the annual Oceanside Music Festival, Oceanside International Film Festival, Write On Oceanside! and Oceanside Days of Art. OCAF took over the American Songbook/Gershwin Festival, expanded it and it is now in its 13th year this October as Oceanside Music Festival. Partnering with Oceanside Public Library and the Oceanside Friends of the Library, it has added Write On Oceanside!, an Oceanside-authors only book fair to its lineup of annual events, held in July. Finally OCAF will round out with the fourth year of its Oceanside International Film Festival this August. During the past 25 years, OCAF has provided venues for student, vocational, and professional visual and performing artists and given out several scholarships to students from throughout North County San Diego.
