An urban pop-up plaza made its way to State Street in Carlsbad as a community experiment. Urban Place Consulting Group painted a 12-space parking lot, and added chairs and tables with funds from the city to open up public space. Different activities took place throughout the week, including a free yoga class on Monday morning. After the pop-up plaza closed the space reverted back to a parking lot. The plaza will be used again Sunday during the final day of the Carlsbad Music Fest. Photo by Ellen Wright
50-year sand project still on track By Bianca Kaplanek
REGION — Contrary to what’s been rumored, a project that could place more than 1.5 million cubic yards of sand on Solana Beach and Encinitas beaches over 50 years “has not died,” Solana Beach City Councilwoman Lesa Heebner said. In fact, it recently received a recommendation for approval from the assistant secretary of the Army. “That’s a big milestone for us,” Heebner said at the Sept. 10 meeting. The two cities have been working with the Army Corps of Engineers for nearly 15 years to reduce damage to more than eight miles of beach beginning at the mouth of Batiquitos Lagoon in Encinitas and stretching south to include the entire 1.7-mile Solana Beach coastline except an area north of Tide Park. The plan was to use sand from offshore borrow sites to renourish the beaches on a regular cycle for 50 years starting in 2015. The tentatively recommended plan is to replace 100 feet of beach every five years in Encinitas and 200

City Council, residents express disappointment over the revelation By Aaron Burgin
ENCINITAS — The annual debt financing payments for the purchase of the Pacific View Elementary site and Moonlight Beach lifeguard tower will be significantly higher than originally anticipated, city officials said Wednesday night. When the City Council approved the two-year budget in July, they anticipated paying $733,000 a year in debt service on the projects. City Manager Gus Vina surprised the council Wednesday when he told them the bond payments could be as high as $815,000 because the city would likely have to issue taxable bonds to consummate the Pacific View purchase, as opposed to the less costly tax-exempt bonds they were expected to issue. The increase would raise the total debt service on the land purchase from $22.9 million to $24.4 million over the 30-year life of the debt. Vina said taxable
bonds might be necessary because the proposed concepts for the land’s use, both interim and permanent, likely run afoul of the code governing tax-exempt bonds because they would generate revenue, which is largely prohibited. The City Council expressed disappointment in the city staff for the 11thhour revelation, which riled several residents in attendance who said the issuance of taxable bonds could open the property up for uses other than the concept of a performing arts center that most residents support on the site. “My understanding from early on is that we’ve always said that we wanted to have some interim uses that could generate revenue,” Councilwoman Lisa Shaffer said. “I can only express my extreme disappointment that we didn’t have this discussion when we were doing the budget in the first place.” The Council ultimately decided to delay the decision on the type of bonds it would issue to receive further information from the city’s finance team. It voted unanimously to create a subcomittee composed of Councilwoman Teresa Barth and Shaffer to draft a plan to solicit TURN TO PACIFIC VIEW ON A21

Forum allows candidates a chance to air stances on issues Topics from Prop A to trenching train tracks are discussed By Aaron Burgin
ENCINITAS — Several candidates for Encinitas’ council and mayoral seats vowed at Tuesday’s candidate forum to not alter the 2012 voter-approved initiative known as Proposition A. The forum, hosted by the Cardiff Town Council, was the first time during the campaign season where all five mayoral and four city council candidates were under one roof to answer residents’ questions. Current council members Kristin Gaspar, who serves as
the city’s appointed mayor, and appointed Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz are running for the city’s first elected mayor position, along with former mayor Sheila Cameron, independent journalist Alex Fidel and local engineer Mike Bawany. Catherine Blakespear, Julie Graboi, Alan Lerchbacker and Brian Ziegler are running for the Council seat left vacant when Teresa Barth chose to not seek re-election. The open and free-flowing format allowed audience members to pose questions to one, some or each of the candidates. Each candidate was allowed to deliver a two-minute opening statement and closing remarks. While a number of the questions touched on broad issues from the militarization of the
police force to the difference between “clean water” and “healthy water,” several questions touched on key Encinitas issues: the candidates’ opinions on Prop. A, the issues stemming from the proliferation of bars in downtown Encinitas, railroad trenching and the question of stadium lighting at the city’s new Encinitas Community Park. The question as to whether the candidates would do anything to alter Prop. A — which requires voter approval for zoning changes in the city and for buildings or structures taller than 30 feet — evoked some of the stronger responses. Cameron, who served on he council in the late-90s, called the 2012 initiative “the most important initiative since we (Encinitas) became a city.”
She urged people to reject any version of the city’s general plan update, which voters will decide on in 2016, that contains any language that would undermine Prop. A protections. Gaspar and Kranz, who are also running for mayor, opposed Prop. A, but both said they would abide by the will of the people who voted for the measure. “It is the law of the land and we need to respect that,” Gaspar said. Kranz said that while he did not vote for the proposition, he said that he supported the principle of voters deciding land-use decisions, which was originally part of the general plan. Graboi, who publicly campaigned for Prop. A, said she would “do everything to protect the right for residents to weigh

2014 horse race season seen as an ‘anomaly’ By Bianca Kaplanek
By Ellen Wright
CARLSBAD — The Parks & Recreation Commission received an update on the overhaul of the Parks Master Plan for Pine Avenue, Poinsettia and Aviara Community Parks. Neelay Bhatt, vice president of PROS Consulting, Inc., spoke Tuesday to the commission about what he’s heard from the community thus far. He said his team administered a statistically reliable survey to find out what the community wants and what needs weren’t being met. The city has also been hosting workshops to get community input. About 120 to 150 residents have come to the meetings to give their two cents, said special projects manager Mick Calarco. An online crowdsourcing website was also launched for residents who couldn’t attend the projects in person. People can log on and give input to each particular park until the end of September. Bhatt said the site is so impressive, he used it to show Parks & Recreation officials in Illinois best practices for government crowd sourcing websites. The city contracted with RHA Landscape Architects along with PROS Consulting to update the parks’ master plans. The project planners expect to have the plans ready to show the commission by Nov. 12. The commission will then be able to either approve it, or ask for changes. The team has a general idea of what will be at each park, said Bhatt, but is still getting community input. Bhatt stressed the im-

Downtown’s well-documented issue with public intoxication was another hot topic for the panelists. Graboi and Cameron said they supported the so-called “deemed-approved” ordinance, which would create a special permit system for existing alcohol-serving businesses and require businesses to meet certain trash, noise and policing standards. Cameron warned that without additional laws, Encinitas could go the way of Pacific Beach, which is notorious for high levels of nuisance and crime associated
Disappointed by safety data presented at a recent meeting, council members may consider eliminating red-light cameras such as these at Via de la Valle and Camino del Mar, but not before June 2016, when the current contract expires. Photo by Bianca Kaplanek
City Council disappointed in red-light camera data Most tickets issued as a result of the cameras went to people who live outside Del Mar’s ZIP code By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Concerned the city is losing money and not getting the safety benefits from redlight cameras, council members directed staff at the Sept. 15 meeting to bring back additional data so they can determine whether they should renew the contract with the company that provides the traffic-enforcement devices. Following a report citing an increase in the number of drivers running red lights in the city, three cameras were authorized in October 2003 for installation at two locations on Camino del Mar — the north- and southbound lanes at Via de la Valle and the northbound lane at Del Mar Heights Road — at an estimated cost of $36,000. The original contract allowed Redflex Traffic Systems to receive a per-ticket payment, but state law prohibited such compensation in 2009. The city now pays about $56,000 a year to the company.
Money from tickets generally exceeded the cost of the cameras, but did not cover the approximately $65,000 spent to pay a sheriff’s detective to review the citations and appear in court if a violator chose to fight the ticket. That brings the total cost to the city for the system to about $122,000 a year. In fiscal year 20122013, the city took in $93,901 from the cameras. This past fiscal year that amount didn’t even reach $50,000. City officials say the cameras were not intended to be a revenue source, but rather a means to increase safety at intersections. Assistant City Manager Mark Delin said sheriff’s captains “strongly believe … that the red light cameras are effective” at reducing collisions, but council members are not convinced the data supports that conclusion. “There’s no direct evidence that the cameras reduced serious accidents at the intersections where they’re installed,” Councilman Don Mosier said, noting there were very few incidents at the two intersections. Although additional
data shows a decrease in collisions citywide, Mosier said that could be the result of a reduction in younger drivers, safer cars and more people taking public transit and riding bikes. “I can draw no conclusions from those data that you presented that say the cameras are increasing public safety,” Mosier said TURN TO CAMERAS ON A21
DEL MAR — Four breakdowns on the newly installed turf track, part of an overall total of 16 horse deaths during the 2014 summer racing season, and low attendance and betting were an “anomaly,” Joe Harper, president and chief executive officer of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, told the 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors during the group’s first meeting since the season ended Sept. 3. “But any time one horse breaks down, it’s too many,” Harper added. Harper or other DMTC representatives provide normally positive and upbeat industry updates — locally and nationally — at the board’s monthly meetings, especially when it comes to the place “where the turf meets the surf.” But with an almost record number of deaths at the track and a decrease in attendance and betting numbers, Harper wasn’t his usual jovial self in front of directors earlier this month. “It was very frustrating for us,” he said, when a room full of Hall of Fame jockeys and trainers are saying the course is good
and we “end up with four breakdowns” on the turf track. Despite positive feedback from those who work directly with the animals daily, Harper said he and other officials “felt it was prudent to close the course” and perform scheduled maintenance early. Once it reopened, Harper said it was limited to “top tier” horses that seldom have breakdowns — and none occurred on turf for the remainder of the season. The new turf course was installed in March using the same type of grass that was taken out because of its proven ability to adapt and grow well in Del Mar and withstand the track’s use of salty reclaimed water. The project, which began a few months later than originally planned, was undertaken primarily to increase safety for the riders and horses. The old course was installed for the 1960 racing season. When asked by directors what they should tell the public about the tragedies this season, Harper said every horse that TURN TO HORSE RACES ON A21

Signs indicate state’s recovery will last California Focus By Thomas D. Elias There are still skeptics who maintain the California economy remains in recession, that talk of economic recovery amounts to whistling past the proverbial graveyard when unemployment remains above 7 per cent. Gov. Jerry Brown labeled these folks “declinists” two years ago, when unemployment was much higher and the signs of recovery were not nearly as strong as they are today. But those signs are now seemingly almost everywhere, even though a few major corporations are in the process of moving headquarters elsewhere. For one thing, in midsummer, California – like the rest of America – finally had gained back all jobs lost in the recession of 2007-11. The new jobs may be in different places and of somewhat different types than those that were lost, but the fact is there actually has been a little bit of job growth since 2008, something that befuddles the declinists. The figures come from a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Then there’s the fact that California lawmakers are starting to realize this state has serious competition for some of its key industries, with other states and even some foreign countries willing to grant large subsidies to companies that move headquarters or parts of their businesses. One example is the upcoming move of Toyota’s national headquarters, complete with its sparkling museum of classic cars the company has produced since the 1930s, to a Dallas suburb. Not only will Toyota get large tax reductions for at least its first eight years in Texas, but it will
pay far less for the land it needs than it figures to get when it sells the land it will vacate in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance. That’s standard procedure in many states. Louisiana, for example, has attracted large amounts of film and TV production not only because of its green scenery, but also because production companies save as much as 30 percent of their costs by going there. That’s through a combination of subsidized hotel rates and equipment rentals, tax relief and lower-priced labor. The same happens in places like North Carolina, Idaho and New York. The first step in California lawmakers wising up came when the Legislature during the summer expanded and extended tax exemptions for movie and TV production here. Then they passed a bi-partisan bill sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Steve Fox and Republican state Sen. Steve Knight, both of Palmdale, giving military contractors Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin as much as $420 million in tax credits over 15 years for production of a new strategic bomber to replace the B-2, which was also developed largely in the Antelope Valley. In case they don’t get the Defense Department contract for that project, another bill with the same benefit for Northrop Corp. would provide similar help — about $28 million a year, or 17 percent of wages paid to manufacturing workers. There has been reluctance here to subsidize big industries; one reason California has lost a lot of them to other states and countries. There is good reason for that hesitance, as subsidies raise questions of favoritism and special interest influence. But with others offering so much, California at least now re-
alizes it must get into this game. Then there’s venture capital, where the Silicon Valley this spring absolutely dominated the world scene. Fully 41 percent of all venture dollars invested around the world from April through June went to San Francisco Bay area startups, a big improvement from the first quarter, when places like Texas and Massachusetts drew significant investment. But last spring, all of Europe got less than half what went to Silicon Valley, according to a report from PitchBook Data. The end result of this should be more companies headquartered in California, to join former startups like Google, Intel, Yelp and Twitter. Put it all together and you get a dynamic picture of job recovery, the prospect of great job growth and a reborn determination to preserve what the state already. That’s all bad news for the declinists who enjoy putting California down even while it pulls itself back up toward the golden stature it long enjoyed.

Want to save someone’s life? Well, now there’s an app for that. Thanks to a partnership between the county and city of San Diego, as well as emergency responders — including American Medical Response — a new app is now available to San Diego County residents that will undoubtedly save lives, perhaps someone you know. The app, known as PulsePoint, is designed to help keep alive those who suffer a cardiac emergency. Here’s how it works: Have you ever been to a restaurant or somewhere else and you hear a siren off in the distance, and then it gets louder and louder, closer and closer, and then you see an ambulance pull up outside? Oftentimes, paramedics are responding to someone who’s gone into cardiac arrest. But many times, there are people nearby — across the street or next door — who are trained in CPR, but are unaware of the emergency and unable to help. Using the PulsePoint app, which features the latest GPS technology, 9-11 dipatchers will now be able to send a text message to citizens who are trained in CPR of a nearby cardiac emergency at the same time they dispatch an ambulance. Anyone who signs up for the app and receives the notification will be able to respond quickly and begin administering
the life-saving technique, keeping the victim’s heart beating until paramedics arrive. Without question, those first few minutes after someone goes into cardiac arrest are critical: a person’s chance of survival skyrockets when CPR is administered right then and there. In fact, CPR almost triples one’s chances of survival. Unfortunately, only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR. So sadly, only 8 percent of cardiac arrest victims will survive. This app will undoubtedly improve these numbers. Our message is clear: get trained in CPR, sign up for the PulsePoint app, and be a hero. AMR offers free CPR training yearround. It’s easy to learn and takes only about 15 minutes. For more information about our training, go to amr-sandiego.com. Once you’re trained, you can sign up for the PulsePoint app by going to pulsepoint.org. This is just one way we as a community are working together to save lives in San Diego County. Please get trained in CPR and sign up for the PulsePoint app today. Michael Murphy is General Manager of American Medical Response in San Diego County.
Letters to the Editor New spirit in local government Since the election of Tony Kranz and Lisa Shaffer to the Encinitas City Council, there has been a new spirit of transparency and citizen involvement in our local government. I have been very impressed with the efforts to be more accountable to voters and to collaboratively create the vision for the future. I will be voting for Tony Kranz for mayor. He “plays well with others” and listens to all sides of an issue. Kristin Gaspar, op-
posed the online eTownHall which increases our access to facts and debate on local issues. Kristin is also running on the fact that she opposed tax increases for the city. This is an odd campaign centerpiece as no new taxes were ever proposed. Meanwhile Tony served on the NCTD Board, saved the Pacific View school site for the city, addressed finances at the Encinitas Ranch Golf Authority, proposed subcommittee to protect city trees and support urban agriculture, increased
funding for road maintenance, provided funding for the new marine safety center at Moonlight Beach, and so on. I hope our city can continue down this road of progress in more collaborative city government with greater sensitivity to the environment and health of all her citizens. I would encourage others to compare the records of these candidates to see if you don’t agree that Tony has done the most for our city and is the best choice. Christie Turner, Encinitas

Some Tri-City nurses raise concerns over ER conditions By Ellen Wright
OCEANSIDE — Some registered nurses at TriCity Medical Center held a press conference Monday to voice their concerns about the conditions in the emergency room at the hospital. According to Steve Mathews, a representative for the California Nurses Association, patients occasionally spend up to three days in the emergency room, which is well past the state mandated maximum of 23 hours. “We’re not only saying that we have issues, we have answers to what needs to happen here,” said Mathews. Brenda Ham, a nurse who has been at the hospital for 32 years, said dangerous altercations have happened while behavioral patients waited outside of the ER. “There’s been some dangerous events happening because they have security guards watching confused or alcoholic patients,” said Ham. The nurses said they were concerned that security guards without proper training sometimes watch over patients, instead of certified nursing assistants. Another recommendation the nurses gave was opening up an overflow room on the third floor of the hospital. Ham and other nurses held up their documented complaint letters, which they said they have been sending hospital management for six months. The nurses are unable to share the documents because they have detailed patient information and would lose their jobs if they did so, under the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act. David Bennett, senior vice president and chief of marketing at Tri-City, said the nurses haven’t voiced concerns to senior management. “We’re not going to respond to this kind of stuff, neither the staff nor the union has brought any of these issues to the attention of senior management,” said Bennett. The nurses had specific recommendations for improvements, including opening up a new Behavioral Health Unit for patients
who pose a threat to themselves and others. As it stands right now, patients with behavioral issues are watched by security guards outside of the emergency room while waiting for an open bed, according to Mathews. Ham said the problems began when the float pool TURN TO NURSES ON A21
ENCINITAS — An open-government watchdog group has threated to sue the Encinitas Union School District over a three-day district management retreat attended by four board members, which the group says violated state open-meeting laws. The district received a cease-and-desist and cure-and-correct demand from the law offices of Kelly Aviles, the attorney representing Californians Aware, a group that advocates on behalf of citizens’ rights to open public meetings. The demand letter gives the district 30 days to reverse any decisions the board may have made on the trip and to publicly acknowledge that it did violate the act, or be sued. School district officials have defended the trip and argue that it did not violate the spirit of those open-meeting laws. “Essentially, a judge could compel the district to disclose any decision that it made during the retreat,” said Cory Briggs, a San Diego attorney who also spe-
cializes in open-meeting laws. Originally, residents questioned the district’s fiscal responsibility for taking the Aug. 6 through Aug. 8 retreat, which was held at an upscale resort near Palm Springs. Later, however, residents began

Grant from Leichtag Foundation boosts efforts for new pavilion By Aaron Burgin
ENCINITAS — The San Diego Botanic Garden recently received two major pieces of news that should boost its efforts to build a state-of-the-art events pavilion. Garden officials announced the Leichtag foundation has pledged $1 million toward the estimated $4 million price tag of the proposed facility, which was recently named the Dickinson Family Education Pavilion. They also announced that the Dickinson Foundation, which had given garden officials until year’s end to secure $3 million to receive a $1 million pledge from the foundation toward the facility, extended the deadline until Dec. 31, 2015.
“This tremendous grant awarded to us by our close friends and neighbors, the Leichtag Foundation, has helped the San Diego Botanic Garden to take a significant step towards making the Dickinson Family Education Pavilion a reality,” said Julian Duval, president and CEO of the San Diego Botanic Garden. “The Pavilion will enable us to expand our educational and experiential opportunities, which are currently limited by a shortage of indoor space, thereby allowing more people to experience the wonder of nature at the Garden and bring new knowledge and practices home with them.” The proposed indoor pavilion would serve as the second phase of the gar- The Leichtag Foundation will provide a $1 million grant to the San Diego Botanic Garden to boost efforts to build a state of the art pavilion. courtesy San Diego Botanic Garden
den’s Hamilton Children’s Garden. The proposed 5,900-square-foot space would provide meeting and event space for up to 400 people, which would quadruple the garden’s current meeting space. Duval said the Leichtag
grant will make rental space available to nonprofit groups that otherwise might no be able to utilize the space. With the $1 million, and the $700,000 raised through the garden foundation’s “Grow With Us,” campaign, the garden only needs to
raise $1.3 million more to secure the Dickinson challenge grant. The remainder could come from the County of San Diego, which is currently in negotiations with the city and foundation to possibly purchase the 4.5 acres
of city-owned land where the pavilion is slated to be built, which would allow the county to award grant funding toward the project. County rules don’t allow county grant money to be used on land not owned by the county.

The anticipated quiet zone will silence horns at Surfrider Way, Mission Avenue, Wisconsin Avenue, Oceanside Boulevard and Cassidy Street. “Every beach community wants a quiet zone,” Mayor Jim Wood said. Approval was given in a 4-1 vote on Sept. 10, with Councilwoman Esther Sanchez voting no. Sanchez said the costly project would only benefit a few people. Construction of the quiet zone is estimated to have a price tag of $8 million. Borrowed Transnet funds will be considered as a funding source.

Following the meeting Kern said there have only been informal “coffee table conversations” about fund-

Seawall decision could impact other coastal property owners By Aaron Burgin
ENCINITAS — A state appeals court’s recent ruling upholding the California Coastal Commission’s right to impose time limits on how long two Encinitas families’ private seawalls could be erected could have far-reaching implications for coastal property owners, experts said. The case has generated much attention as private homeowners throughout the state are at odds with the state’s coastal protection agency’s stance regarding seawalls, which are typically concrete or wooden barriers built at the base of cliffs to stabilize them and protect homes built atop coastal bluffs. E nv i r on me nt a l i s t s have long pushed for the elimination of private seawalls, which they said adversely affect the health of the coastline by preventing normal wear and tear on coastal bluffs, which replenishes sand. The Fourth District Court of Appeals, by 2-1 decision, overturned a lower court’s ruling that overturned the state commission’s clause requiring Barbara Lynch and Thomas Frick to reapply for a permit for the seawall for the families’ homes on Neptune Avenue after 20 years. Superior Court Judge Earl Maas’ original decision also reversed the Commission’s decision to deny the families a permit
to reconstruct a private staircase from their properties to the beach below. The appeals court’s decision reverses this, too. The families were applying for a permit to build a 100-foot-tall, state-of-the-art concrete seawall to replace their aging wooden one and rebuild the private staircase from their homes to the beach below, after storms in 2010 largely wiped out both structures. The city of Encinitas approved their applications, but the Coastal Commission stepped in and denied the permit for the staircase and would only allow the families to rebuild the wall with the 20-year stipulation, to which the families agreed. The Coastal Commission has argued that by agreeing to the conditions, the families waived their rights to sue. The families contend they signed the documents under protest and duress, as not signing them would delay the construction of the seawall and put their homes in peril. “The Commission contends respondents waived any challenge to these conditions by signing and recording documents agreeing to them and then accepting the benefits of the permit by completing their project,” the appeals court wrote in TURN TO SEAWALLS ON A16
OCEANSIDE — City Council incumbents Jerome “Jerry” Kern and Gary Felien, and candidates Chuck Lowery and Dana Corso faced off in the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce forum held at MiraCosta College on Sept. 11. The forum asked each candidate specific questions on their candidate statement and campaign platform. The four candidates stayed true to their stated agendas in their responses. Candidate Robert Tran did not participate in the forum. Kern touted being the go-to guy for businesses. His replies to most questions were brief, to the point and emphasized economic improvements Oceanside has realized. Kern defended City Council’s decision to eliminate 130 “redundant” city jobs in order to weather the recession. “We rightsized the government,” Kern said. Kern stood by his support of the failed mobile home rent decontrol proposition, saying it is not government’s place to dictate rents, even though voters recognized mobile home owners are essentially at the will of park owners without rent control. He also pushed for completion of the Melrose Drive extension to fulfill the city circulation plan. Felien spoke about keeping a tight lid on city salaries and pensions. He supported going forward with the Rancho del

Oro interchange. He said it has been opposed by NIMBYs and is beneficial to the city. Felien also voiced support for the city charter, which initially saved the city money by not requiring city development projects to pay prevailing wage. He said he stands by the charter even though the provision to pay below prevailing wage is under litigation, and may forfiet all state funding. “I’m fighting for taxpayers every step of the way,” Felien said. Lowery, a former business owner, talked about making City Hall friendlier to small businesses and safeguarding water resources. He said the proposed design of the Gregory Canyon Landfill that will sit on top of the San Luis Rey River is an infrastructure nightmare, and landfill leaks into the waterway are expected. “We should stay away from high-intensity infrastructure projects that are not going to work,” Lowery
said. He also spoke about City Council working with city emergency services to aid services in cutting down response times, and not acting like a dictatorship. Corso spoke about community needs being ignored, and suggested that committees be reinstated to ensure residents are heard. “There are many, many issues out there that the City Council majority ignored,” Corso said. Corso said Kern and Felien challenged mobile home rent control despite community outcry, and called the
defeated proposition for rent decontrol a waste of taxpayer funds. She added the cost of putting the proposition on the ballot limited the city’s ability to address pressing issues, such as gang reduction. Corso also voiced opposition to the city charter and the heavy hand it allows City Council members. Candidates agreed on not outsourcing city safety services, and satisfaction with the job performance of the city manager. Following the forum Kern and Felien said they would have liked to have the opportunity to rebut fellow candidates. The forum did not include debates following candidates’ replies, but candidates did weave rebuttal statements into their responses. The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce also held an Oceanside Unified School District candidate forum at MiraCosta College earlier that evening.

City restates traffic, emergency response concerns By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — Despite an approximately 400,000-square-foot reduction in the size of a proposed mixed-use development in Carmel Valley, Del Mar City Council members reiterated the same issues they had about the project in their third response to environmental impact reports. Commenting on the draft and recirculated EIRs for One Paseo, the city sent letters in May 2012 and December 2013 outlining concerns about traffic, emergency response times and neighborhood character. At the Sept. 15 meeting, council members unanimously agreed as part of the consent calendar to send a similar letter to San Diego’s Planning Commission for an Oct. 2 hearing held to respond to the final EIR. Kilroy Realty Corporation originally proposed an approximately 1.8 million-gross-squarefoot development with retail and office buildings, a 150-room hotel and more than 600 multifamily residential units. It featured public open spaces, internal roadways and parking structures. Some buildings were proposed to be 10 stories high.
Del Mar City Council recently agreed to send a letter to the San Diego Planning Commission reiterating its traffic and emergency response concerns with One Paseo, a proposed 1.5-million-gross-square-foot development on the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real in Carmel Valley.

Myriad groups expressed concerns about the size and density of the project — the almost 24acre lot on the southwest corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real is currently zoned to allow about 510,000 gross square feet of office uses — so Kilroy

scaled it back. Current plans call for a nearly 1.5-million-gross-square-foot development with about 198,500 gross square feet of commercial retail space, almost 500,000 gross square feet of commercial offices, a 50,000-square-foot cinema and
608 multifamily units. The most recent letter, signed by Mayor Lee Haydu, states the city’s concern that as traffic backs up at the Interstate 5 on- and offramps on Del Mar Heights Road, motorists will use Camino del Mar, “as they currently do when either the freeway or the onramps are congested.” “This has a tremendous impact on the City of Del Mar and local traffic in its downtown village,” the letter states. Council members ask that project alternatives that reduce the impacts on regional traffic be explored. According to its website, Kilroy plans to invest more than $6 million in state-of-the-art traffic improvements in the corridor. The development will also provide opportunities for a private shuttle, community access to Coaster stations and car- and bike-sharing programs. Del Mar officials also note the final EIR does not adequately address the impacts to emergency public services. San Diego’s Fire Station 24 is the identified provider for One Paseo. Del Mar’s Fire Station 1 “has a significant call volume”
that supplements Station 24, the letter states. “An increase in service calls due to the new development will exacerbate this current situation.” The city requests that an emergency response study be conducted. At a minimum it should take into consideration existing response times for both fire stations, the impact the project and its anticipated traffic congestion would have on response times by both departments and suggestions such as improved road widths and fire lanes that could reduce response times. The city also “strongly agrees” that the revised project is still “significantly inconsistent with the low-scale and low-intensity character of the immediate vicinity.” According to the letter, Del Mar officials support projects that encourage mixed-use environments, pedestrian-oriented spaces and sustainable buildings. So in the letter they ask the city of San Diego to continue working with Kilroy and the Carmel Valley Planning Group, which opposed the revised proposal, to create a project with “significantly reduced community impacts.”
Oceanside city attorney receives $8,500 raise By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — Oceanside City Attorney John Mullen received an $8,500 raise from City Council without fanfare on Sept. 10. His salary is now $229,870 annually and in parity with City Manager Steve Jepsen who was hired a year ago. The city attorney and city manager are hired and awarded raises by the City Council. Their salaries are linked together in a parity agreement that states they should receive equal compensation. City staff explained that if either the city manager or city attorney has an increase or decrease in salary, the other’s salary usually mirrors the action upon City Council approval. Jepsen was hired in November 2013 at a salary of $231,840 and a comfortable compensation package if he is let go. His salary tops that
of his predecessor Peter Weiss, who was paid $223,345 plus compensation, and who now serves as a city consultant. Following Weiss’ resignation as city manager, Councilman Jack Feller
The attorney has done very well and is deserving of it.” Jim Wood Mayor, Oceanside
suggested Jepsen, former Oceanside city manager and at that time Yuba City manager, be offered the position. City Council voted 3-2 to hire Jepsen without holding a national search for candidates. The hiring process brought up some differenc-
es of opinion. Last October, Feller voiced his support for Jepsen. “He started an awful lot of good things here,” Feller said. “He knows the cost of things, and what’s necessary to make a coastal city thrive.” At that time Mayor Jim Wood voiced concerns about the hiring process, and said he would have preferred to have gone through a formal search process to find a city manager the entire City Council agrees upon. “It was kind of a done deal in the back room,” Wood said. “They didn’t want to go any further.” Today City Council unanimously supports Jepsen and his performance since he returned to the position. “I’m happy with him trying to do the right things,” Wood said. Wood added Mullen does an admirable job and
deserves the salary increase. “The attorney has done very well and is deserving of it,” Wood said. Mullen’s salary was last adjusted in 2010. City staff said the attorney’s latest salary increase was overlooked at the time the city manager was hired. “We neglected to look at the city attorney contract,” the staff member said. Eighty hours of Mullen’s accrued vacation leave will be sold back to the city to cover this year’s salary increase, and neutralize part of the financial impact on the city budget. His CalPERS costs will increase by $2,264, and be paid for by General Fund reserves for employee wages. Councilman Gary Felien, who is often outspoken about PERS increases, said the attorney’s raise was a matter of procedure.

For county supe, the grass really will be greener By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — When it comes to doing his part to help the environment, County Supervisor Dave Roberts doesn’t just talk the talk. He is now walking the walk around the approximately 6,500 square feet of artificial turf he recently had installed at his Solana Beach home. Roberts and his partner, Wally Oliver, are taking advantage of government financing and rebate programs to fund the $45,000 project and expect a return on their investment in less than nine years. They began discussing ways to save water and money at the beginning of the year. Many of their neighbors had replaced their landscaping with drought-tolerant plants. “But Wally said with a brick Colonial house, you’ve got to have a grass yard,” said Roberts, who 12 years ago bought the home – the first one on the east side of the city -- that was built in the mid-1970s by singer Patti Page. “He was right,” Roberts added. “Once we saw the quality of artificial turf that’s available now, we decided to do it. And once we made the decision it went quickly.” Orange County-based Turf Evolutions began removing the front and back lawns, which are about 3,250 square feet each, Sept. 15. The work was expected to take approximately six

days. Roberts and Oliver will recoup some of their costs with a rebate program from the Metropolitan Water District. They are eligible to receive about $2 per square foot of grass that is replaced. The $33,000 balance is being financed using a Home Energy Retrofit Opportunity, or HERO, which is part of the Property Assessed Clean Energy, or PACE, program. PACE allows property owners to buy water-conservation or energy-efficient upgrades and pay for them over time through an additional assessment on their property tax bills. Artificial turf reduces water use by about 44 gallons per square foot, so Roberts and Oliver expect to save about 264,000 gallons of water each year by not watering their lawn. Property owners must live in a city that participates in the HERO program, which Solana Beach TURN TO TURF ON A21
REGION — Del Mar, Solana Beach and Encinitas have agreed to collaborate and serve as a host town during the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, which will be held in Los Angeles in July 2015. With more than 7,000 athletes and 3,000 coaches representing 177 countries in 25 events at 27 Los Angeles venues, it will be the largest event hosted by Los Angeles since the 1984 Olympic Games. Opening ceremonies are scheduled for July 25 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Athlete Villages at the University of Southern California and University of California Los Angeles. Three days prior to that approximately 100 cities and towns in Southern California, from San Diego to San Luis Obispo, will host delegations from around the world. Coming in early will allow the athletes to acclimate to the local culture and climate. Del Mar, Solana Beach and Encinitas will be called the North County Host Town and will be assigned one delegation — typically 70 athletes and 30 coaches — that will participate in social and cultural activities unique to the area. San Diego is using a regional approach, with County Supervisor Dave Roberts, a Solana Beach resident, taking the lead to coordinate the North County Host Town. Collaborating in South County are Coronado, National City and Chula Vista, while El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee and Lemon Grove are expected to
make up the East County partnership. Dawn O’Leary, director of the Host Town Program organizing committee, said lodging — especially in Southern California in the middle of summer — and a chairman for the area committee are the most difficult to find, but both have been secured. California State University San Marcos will house the delegations at no cost. Representatives said Roberts’ office has also secured transportation. Host towns will be acknowledged in signage at venues and listed on the 2015 Special Olympics World Games website that has worldwide exposure.
Each host town also will have its own web and Facebook Fan pages for promotion and recognition. A host town committee, with Lindsey Masukawa from Roberts’ office serving as chairwoman, will be formed to help coordinate transportation, training, public relations, volunteer staffing and language services. As participants, the cities will allow the use of their logo for fundraising and marketing and free access to city facilities for athletes to practice and for cultural and welcoming events. City staff will also help plan and host activities for the three days. Costs to the city are
expected to be primarily indirect, mostly for staff time. Roberts’ office and the Lions Club International will cover most if not all other costs, the staff reports state. The World Games have not been in the United States for 16 years and likely won’t be held in Southern California “again in our lifetimes,” O’Leary said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” O’Leary said the goal of the Host Town Program is to “broaden the reach of the World Games to a much bigger area outside of Los Angeles and share the experience with more people.” TURN TO SPECIAL OLYMPICS ON A16

Educational Opportunities Students work on Give and Surf program A new school year commences and many exciting opportunities emerge for PAE students beyond their rigorous, cross-curricular, project-based classes they have come to know and enjoy. Students have the opportunity to get involved in sports, music, and volunteering. Service and making education come to life have been Pacific Academy's cornerstone for years. Pacific Academy embeds Service into the curriculum knowing the benefits that giving back can provide while also building leadership skills. Through student-driven projects, students will lead and participate in a variety of community service projects throughout San Diego and beyond. This year, students will be working on a year-long service project that will end with learning truly coming to life by getting to visit the organization they have been collaborating with all year, Give and Surf, a locally embedded 501(c)(3) nonprofit of volunteers that provides sustainable empowerment to indigenous communities in Bocas del Toro, Panama, through education and community development. Thus far, the organization, with the help of volunteers, has build the first community playground and

library, performed community construction, installed a water catchman tank, and led all preschool educational programs. Give and Surf, provides substantive, handson, real world assistance and programs to the indigenous Ngobe people. Neil Christiansen, the founder notes, "We offer enriching volunteer and internship opportunities to give back to others and give back to yourself in the remote islands of Bocas del Toro." Give and Surf, Inc. is a small organization that “relies heavily on having individuals or groups come down for the experience,” Christiansen said. “That is why it is so important to build an unforgettable experience for the volunteer.” Pacific Academy is thrilled to join Give and Surf this year. Students will learn a great deal about Panama, Latin America, Nonprofits and more all
while proactively creating and living out their volunteerism. Pacific Academy is always looking for ways to give back, ground leaning, and make education memorable. Another wonderful example was led by our English Teacher, Mrs. Emma Bardin. As a part of PAE’s commitment to cross-curricular learning, earlier this year PAE English World Literature students conducted a scientific experiment using microfluidics and wrote a scientific paper about their findings. Their experiment was just referenced in a high-impact scientific journal this summer. Biomedical engineer Dr. David Bardin, who specializes in microfluidics and ran the experiment with PAE students, published his article in Lab on a Chip in which he discusses the microfluidic experiment PAE students conducted in English World Literature. PAE’s EWL experiment and scientific papers are truly cutting edge! With an exciting year ahead filled with more project-based learning and volunteering locally and internationally, now is the time for students to find their passion and seize the opportunity to be themselves at Pacific Academy, Encinitas!

ever an Internet connection can be found. Because of this, students take courses online with support from their teacher via phone, online Web meetings, and sometimes even face to face. This new way of learning allows the parent to take an active role in the student’s learning and to really become a partner with their child. The parent (or "Learning Coach") keeps the student on track in line with the provided lessons plans. In addition to the online courses, AAS provides plenty of opportunities to connect online and offline with other AAS students and families. The Academy of Arts and Sciences staff is very active in the community and can often be found interacting with families at Beach Clean Up Days, various community festivals, and organized activities that take place at their Learning Centers.

Local charter school is now enrolling for the new school year San Marcos — Taylion San Diego Academy is now enrolling for the new school year, with programs in home school, independent study and a virtual program serving North County. With locations in San Marcos and Vista, the charter school has a program to meet the needs of students in need of a more personalized education. The charter school opened in 2013, and has since grown to be a partner in the North County community. During its first year of existence, the school was granted accreditation by the Western Association of Schools (WASC), and has now expanded into Vista. The Taylion program is an option for students K-12, who find that a traditional school setting just isn’t a fit for them, academically or otherwise (bullies, etc.). A large number of their student population is high school students. “Kids that come to us, are for whatever reason, not thriving in a traditional public school setting,” said Taylion San Diego Academy’s Director of Business Development, Shannon Smith. “It can be for a variety of reasons: academics, socially, and they come to us where they find

a place where they can academically and socially thrive.” Taylion offers three separate learning environments for students: online education programs, a home-school program, and an independent study program. Programs are often blended to meet the needs of students. Some additional learning opportunities include small group instruction and online learning programs. School officials say the program offers individualized learning, a safe environment with less distraction, higher parent involvement, credit recovery, credit acceleration, greater access to new educational resources, and unparalleled flexibility in utilizing var-
ious instructional delivery methods based on the particular student’s learning style. When asked what parents should look for in a choice for education, Smith said, “I think, first of all, parents consider what their kid’s needs are. What is it that they think can help their kid to be successful, and then go look at what the options are, and that’s what is wonderful about charter schools. At Taylion San Diego Academy, we are able to customize their learning program. We offer independent study, online classes, homeschooling and a blended model.

Colbie Caillat is just trying to be herself By Alan Sculley
One of the highlights of Colbie Caillat’s new album, “Gypsy Heart,” is a song she co-wrote with producer Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds called “Try.” A delicate, fittingly stripped back ballad, “Try” talks about the pressures women face for how they should look and act. The key line in the song advises women that they shouldn’t have to try so hard to be someone or something they’re not. They need simply to like themselves as they are. It’s a message that sprang from a time during the making of the new album when Caillat felt she was being pressured to change her sound and her look to be more like the female glossy pop/dance artists that have come to dominate today’s pop charts. “I went in with Babyface and I told him what they (personnel at her record label) were still doing, and they wanted me to do a photo shoot that was like way sexier, and I was annoyed by it,” Caillat explained in a late-August phone interview. “And Kenny was, too. He was like ‘You know what, we’re not going to write a song like that at all. You’re not going to be that kind of artist because you don’t have to.’ Then he had me explain what women go through every day, and especially being in the music industry. So we wrote literal words of what the challenges are daily.” At that point, Caillat had actually recorded an entire album with two key collaborators from her hit 2007 debut album, “Coco” — producer John Shanks and songwriter Jason Reeves. Drawing influences from the groundbreaking fusion of pop and African music Paul Simon created on his “Graceland” album, as well as songs like the hooky, rhythmically unique Simon & Garfunkel tune “Cecilia,” Caillat was excited about the album. But it wasn’t what Universal wanted from Caillatt. “We had them (label representatives) out to the Malibu house and we played them the songs and they weren’t really raving about it,” Caillat said. Instead the label envisioned more of a synthetic, uptempo pop sound — something that would put Caillat more in step with the likes of Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce and any number of other female pop stars who are selling truckloads of singles and albums for major labels these days. Of course, Caillat was initially peeved at her label’s response to the Shanks-produced album. In fact, she summed things up with an opinion that’s shared by many music artists. “I honestly think labels have no idea what they’re doing. I’m just

going to be straight up and say it,” Caillat said. “They’re the ones, on the business side, they should stick to business and let the artist create the music.” Caillat, though, didn’t fully rebel against her label. She agreed todo more songwriting, and a session with Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic produced the dance-friendly uptempo pop tune,” Hold On” — a song that very much fits today’s trends. Caillat liked it, and found herself opening up to that sort of fun dancepop style. By the time she was finished recording “Gypsy Heart,” Caillat had co-written another pair of dance/ pop anthems, “Blaze” and “Live It Up.” Meanwhile, other more relaxed tunes, such as “If You Love Me Let Me Go,” “Nice Guys” and “Never Gonna Let You Down” (which echoes thebig rhythms of the Phillip Phillips folk-pop hit “Home”), blend synthy tones and programmed rhythms with acoustic instrumentation. Those tunes took their place on “Gypsy Heart” alongside a few tunes, including “Try” and “Land Called Far Away,” that are primarily acoustic and organic. Those latter songs help connect “Gypsy Heart” to the breezy pop of Caillat’s first three albums — “Coco,” 2009’s “Breakthrough” and 2011’s

“All of you.” Despite the battle with Universal over the Shanks-produced album, Caillat said she is very pleased with “Gypsy Heart,” noting that she has always written uptempo pop songs closer to “Blaze” and “Live It Up,” but just didn’t put them on her earlier albums. The synthetic textures used on “Gypsy Heart” have brought a whole new dimension to Caillat’s live show, as have the uptempo songs. But she likes what the new songs bring to her show. “We’re playing to (pre-recorded) tracks on some of those songs. We have a lot of the instruments from the record being played through my keyboard player’s computer,” Caillat said. “Then my band, they play the rest. And all of the guitar solos, the keyboard, bass and drums, all of that, is live. They’re singing background vocals and I’m fully singing. I never lip synch or anything. I never have. And it’s really fun because for me. I love the combination. “So we do that with the live show,” she said. “We have the track songs and make them really big with full production. Then we have tons of songs in the set when it’s just me an my piano player or me and a guitar player or like three of us and it’s just really raw and organic.”

It’s unlikely to become the next great young-adult blockbuster, but “The Maze Runner” is by all means a capable action-adventure thriller that manages to come out on top. To my own knowledge, the survival rate for big young-adult films is anything but high; most either collapse on the first try or resign themselves to a franchise fate of obscurity, and even fewer make it to adulthood. And with “The Hunger Games” dominating the big screen until its end in 2015, I don’t expect to see another knockout anytime soon. That’s not to say there won’t at least be some solid titles that manage to get by – who says every quality movie has to be at the top of the food chain? “The Maze Runner” is one of them, and it handles itself rather well in carving out a place it can call home. I haven’t read the book by James Dashner yet, but what I like about Wes Ball’s direction is the ease in which he jumps right into the situation at hand. He quickly establishes this strange expanse called the Glade and the boys — all of whom can’t remember their pasts, let alone how or why they arrived here — that fear the gigantic maze surrounding them on all sides.

that the right way to begin “The Maze Runner” is to cut to the chase, and from the moment the lead character, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), wakes up confused as to what’s happening when he meets this colony of boys, everything is off to a good start. And the director’s confidence in that approach carries over into the tense atmosphere, one where the source of the suspense is the vast unknown of the maze itself. For me, the most impressive feat about the film’s central mystery is how it literally unfolds before your eyes with the constant movements and dangers inside that stone cold labyrinth. When you’ve got shifting panels, winding corridors, closing doors, and biomechanical monsters called Grievers — the ferocious cornerstone of several action sequences — interwoven with an exciting conspiracy centered on why these kids were sent to this location unraveling at a fast pace, there is no denying that the sturdy structure of this film has a good thing going. But to sustain such a riveting mystery, you need to have characters to propel it, and another enjoyable thing I can say for “The Maze Runner” is that its grip on character development remains taut all the way to the TURN TO MAZE RUNNER ON A16

Barrel crash ENCINITAS — For the past four years, Rhino Art Co. has put out a call to local artists and anyone interested in showing what art they could create on rusted out, old oil barrels. On Saturday, that annual tradition continued with 19 barrels being transformed into works of art that will eventually line the outdoor walkway bordering Coast Highway 101, leading to the gallery and art supply store. “It’s a way of displaying local talent,” said the store’s manager Mario Minneci, adding that the barrel crash is a “cool, no pressure, event.” The barrel crash also signals the start of a series of art related events at the store throughout the rest of the year. —Tony Cagala
Music Fest spotlights adventurous composers By Ellen Wright
CARLSBAD — The 11th annual Carlsbad Music Festival is set to draw over 2,000 people over this weekend. The festival spotlights experimental classical musicians and adventurous composers. Wu Man and Son de San Diego will be performing Friday, with stringed instruments from China and Mexico. This will be the final performance of Man’s yearlong project, which fuses Asian and Latin American sounds. Her project was funded by the San Diego Foundation as part of the Creative Catalyst Fund. A free Village Music Walk will take place Sept. 20 from 4 to 10 p.m. and will feature 25 artists performing throughout the village. Some of the venues include parks, art galleries, a record store and a chapel. In order to support the music walk, festival organizers asked people to
contribute on Kickstarter. They successfully reached their goal of raising $5,000 by Sept. 16, with hours to spare. Pulitzer prize winning composer David Lang is debuting “darker,” a 12-string hour-long performance by Renga conducted by Steven Schick. Festival passes can be purchased for $95 or individual concert tickets can be purchased for $20. Violinist Matt McBane started the event, which raises $100,000 annually, to bring adventurous music to the village. Sponsors include The Carlsbad Charitable Foundation, ViaSat, Art Works, La Jolla Country Day School and Carlsbad Village Association. The nonprofit “is committed to premiering new works, programming fresh and compelling music, and providing professional opportunities for established and emerging performers,” according to their mission statement.

Hardwick was more than the center of attention of the Chargers’ front line sports talk jay paris Nick Hardwick scooted down the steamy corridor, one of the first Chargers exiting a jubilant locker room. The Bolts had bounced the Seahawks, but it was Hardwick taking flight late Sunday afternoon, which was noteworthy. Often Hardwick, the Chargers’ longtime center, was the last man standing in the sea of cubicles. Make that sitting, as after three hours of wrestling with defensive tackles, a man deserves a chair. But without fail, Hardwick, in various stages of getting undressed, would offer the seat next to him. He would dissect the game, talk of its importance and explain the nuances of football so anyone — even dumb sportswriters — could understand it. But that Hardwick is history. Instead he’s leading the post-game charge from the locker room instead of exiting with the guys collecting soiled towels. Hardwick’s season is gone and with him goes a glorious piece of Chargers lore. He aggravated a neck injury in the opener, which forced the team to put him on the injured-reserve list. His season, and possibly career, is over. And I couldn’t be sadder. And I couldn’t be happier. Sad because Hardwick was a go-to guy, someone with the intellect and experience to examine football with a keen eye. He was also a Pro Bowler, which meant

he was the best of the best. Happy because he was also a family man, someone loving his wife and two young sons as much as he did wearing pads on Sundays. For that reason — considering his serious injury — I’m ecstatic that Hardwick isn’t playing anymore. He’s probably got the first nickel he made — a flashy lifestyle wasn’t this Midwest mauler’s style. He got 10 years and an opening day in the NFL. And he played on some of the best Chargers teams ever, the anchor of an offensive line which made Marty Ball hip. Hardwick brought more than four quarters of determination to each game. He was a leader, a man’s man, and the reaction of him not being along for this year’s ride is sinking in. Teammate Philip Rivers, as we’ve learned, isn’t

good about his hiding his emotions. Rivers’ halting voice when speaking of Hardwick’s fate illustrated what he meant. Then came Sunday, when the Chargers’ sweet-throwing No. 17 wore the numbers 6 and 1 on his helmet: Hardwick’s number. With the NFL being in the nation’s conversation for all the wrong reasons, Hardwick provides the balance. Yes, the sour news is just that. But not all NFL players are guys you wouldn’t want your sister or kids with. Hardwick took his responsibilities seriously on and off the field. The big
ugly in the trenches was really a big teddy bear, and just ask kids losing their parents about him. For years Hardwick worked tirelessly for the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation. It raises funds for the offspring of those killed protecting our freedom and protecting our streets. Hardwick spent a decade keeping Rivers and others from harm’s way. But Hardwick’s commitment to guarantee those mournful children had money for college trumps anything he did between the sidelines. So while Hardwick wasn’t on Sunday’s microwave-like Qualcomm Stadium turf, he was. Rivers made sure, with his helmet number not consistent with the one on his white jersey. “I thought about him quite a bit,’’ Rivers said. “Especially during the national anthem, thinking he may not be out there again. He may not put on that helmet again with that 61 sticker.’’ Hardwick deserves our praise. While others will remember Rivers’ three touchdown passes, I was touched by Rivers’ compassion. If only briefly, let those disturbing NFL stories take a hike, so we can cherish a center. Hardwick was always aware of the big picture, thanks to his big heart.

Additionally, the panel majority argued, the burden was on the families to prove the commission’s clause was unreasonable; otherwise, the commission has broad authority over regulating the structures. “Respondents have not identified nor have we located any authority categorically precluding the Commission from imposing a condition limiting the duration of a permit,” the opinion states. “To the contrary, the Commission has broad discretion to impose conditions to mitigate the seawall’s impacts.” In dissent, Judge Gilbert Nares opined that the commission overstepped its boundaries when re-
quiring the 20-year clause, which he said amounted to an illegal state takeaway of private property rights. “The permit expiration does not mitigate any impacts the seawall may cause in the future. Rather, it merely gives the Commission the option to deny the permit outright in 20 years,” Nares wrote. Because the opinion is published, it could have far-reaching implications on property owners with private seawalls across the state, because it affirms the commission’s authority and discretion over their approval and conditions of approval.

Tilly is the pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 2-monthold, 5-pound, Chihuahua mix puppy. She is a sweet, shy girl but loves other dogs…even big dogs. Because she’s so small, she’s staying with a foster family until she’s adopted. In her foster home she plays with the family dogs, naps on the couch, and snuggles with the human. The $195 adoption Mar gave its approval as part of the consent calendar, with no discussion, at the Sept. 15 meeting. In Encinitas, where council members agreed to take part during their meeting two days later, there was a requirement added that staff time be accounted for.

Following close behind is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who has this friendly air about him that fits the character of Newt well. And Kaya Scodelario, as the only girl in the group, brings a feisty edge to Teresa.

I must say, I have to hand it to “The Maze Runner” for managing to prove you don’t need to be an A-level film to be a good film. I still don’t think it has what it takes to assume the soon-to-be-vacant throne that “The Hunger Games” currently occupies, but it succeeded in getting the job done and pleasing the crowd — which is what matters most. Will “The Maze Runner” satisfy its book fans? Well, as much as I’m at a disadvantage here, I think the chances are high. Will it impress the general public? Yes, I should think so. Enough said.

Firefighting Marines hone skills to prevent flash fires By Sgt. Christopher Duncan
CAMP PENDLETON — A canister bursts into flame as a thick cloud of brown smoke quickly fills the room. Students sit on the ground and watch with anxiety as the fire spreads, devouring the oxygen in what has now become an oven. The flames skim up the walls of the room and roll across the ceiling like waves of liquid fire. Firefighters sit, prepared to combat the blaze. The fire is a mighty foe, but it’s up against a strong challenge. These aren’t just firefighters, they are also Marines. This was the scene during a training exercise conducted by the Camp Pendleton Fire Department and the Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton’s Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting unit at a controlled burn training facility at the 25 Area here. “This is a train-the-trainer exercise, designed to teach firefighters how to identify the hazardous conditions that can allow rollover and flashover to happen, whether in a house or a large frame aircraft,” said Master Sgt. Raymond Secoy, staff non-commissioned officer in charge of the ARFF. THE TRAINER Rollover is when burn products are ignited due to the introduction of oxygen and combust along the ceiling. “You can see it run across like a wave until it slowly banks down the other side,” said Staff Sgt. Christopher Garbutt, a material chief with the ARFF. “Roll-
over leads to flashover and the heat fills the room, making it all one temperature, much like an upside-down oven.” A flashover is an oxygen depleted still-burning fire. When oxygen is introduced to the burned products, it ignites and it rolls across the ceiling. “It’s called flashover because it flashes from the spot of the fire along the ceiling where combustible products are and it changes the thermal layering in the area, making the room all one temperature at the same time,” said Garbutt. “Your survivability rate is nil at that point.” The instructors learned to teach their future students how to mitigate the chances of a flashover and rollover and what to do if they occur. “The general school of thought is to ‘stay low to the ground’ during a fire, which is right, but the flashover raises 200 degrees at the floor level to 1,300 degrees from floor to ceiling in an instant,” Garbutt explained. During flashover, a fire may look extinguished because it is oxygen depleted. However, if firefighters improperly ventilate the room they introduce oxygen to the fire which causes rapid combustion and super heating. “They would think the fire was out, take off their gear or start performing another part of the firefighting operation - like salvage or overhaul - not realizing that some of their duties were actually feeding a fire they didn’t know was behind a wall or in another room,” Secoy added.

Secoy explained that there are four stages of fire. The incipient phase is what starts the fire, the growth phase is where the fire begins to spread and rolls up the wall, the next is the fully developed phase and the last phase is called decay where a fully formed fire is dying down because everything is already burned. “Everything has an ignition point, meaning that they combust when they get hot enough,” said Secoy. “A flashover happens between the fully developed and decay stages, which causes roll over

and death if you’re not aware of what’s happening.” Secoy said that safety is paramount during the training and it all starts with the small unit leadership; checking the Marines gear and ensuring that it is properly fitted on them and that their air packs are filled and operational. While in the trainer they also constantly monitor each other. “We require a safety vehicle, a large amount of water and at least two hand lines [hoses] for an exercise like this,” said Secoy. “There

THE TRAINEES The firefighters sat on the floor during the exercise for safety, to observing the thermal layering of the room through the stages of fire, and to experience the temperature of the room rapidly increase. The exercise is conducted in a large intermodal container, modified for the training, with one instructor teaching near the fires source and two additional instructors at the front and rear of the structure to control the doors and a lever-controlled ventilation flap inside. “The ventilation flap at the top is designed to release super-heated gases to encourage the beginning of the rollover phase so that all of the firefighters can see it,” said Garbutt. “The training facility is two levels. The students, sitting in the lower level, can get a clear view of what is happening as the fire stretches across the ceiling.” The instructors use plywood, scrap wood and hay is to use as kindling. “We’re very particular about what we use to fuel the fire, because we don’t want to use material that will make the fire difficult to control,” said Garbutt. Marines wore proximity suits, designed to guard against liquid absorption that could potentially burn while dealing with spills.
“We were able to tell that the training facility got up to 1,600 degrees during the exercise and as aircraft fire fighters there is the potential to encounter fires are hot as 2,000 degrees,” said Secoy. “The suits can take up to approximately 2,000 degrees of heat.” They are also equipped with a self-contained breathing apparatus that contains a canister of oxygen that allows up to 60 minutes of breathing time. “We do air pack checks, air bottle checks, we have two active hand lines [water hoses] on the inside and one on the outside on standby,” said Garbutt. Shift workers do daily gear inspections to ensure the equipment used for the exercise is fully functional for game day. “Being able to do this in a safe and controlled environment builds the Marines confidence,” said Garbutt. “Confidence in their gear, tactics and in each other is important. That can save their life.” The simulation can be run three to four times a day with six students per evolution from various units. The Marine Wing Support Squadron, Camp Pendleton Air Station, and civilian federal firefighters will also be able to use the system to meet their training requirement. “We have mutual aid agreements with base fire and they had four or five instructors go through the trainer with us,” said Garbutt. “The students said they thought the training was invaluable.”

In 1966 the Swami’s Surfing Association had made its way down to San Blas Mexico and was enjoying the clean waves of a well organized surfing safari. Every nightfall the group would board an aging jitney and lurch its way into town where they would be deposited at a local cantina. In this hostelry the décor was split down the middle. On one side lay large roughhewn furniture patrolled by strolling mariachis. On

hurled at them in high decibel format. One night a fight broke out amongst the local patrons and it culminated in a drama befitting a Tarantino movie. Right in the center of the cantina was a large terrarium containing a collection of full-grown alligators. As the fight reached its climax a member of the losing side was hung upside down over the terrarium as the alligators carefully turned their stony gazes towards the unexpected entrée. Order was restored however before further bloodshed and the event would become another tale to be embellished when the club returned to its northern shores. As the trip drew to its conclusion there was one highlight left. The local Barcardi rum distributor threw a party for the visiting Americans. The event was on the club’s last night in San Blas in the dimly lit municipal square. Here, long tables draped in colorful linens were hastily arranged and loaded up with the local fare as visitors and residents began to arrive. There was a third group indirectly involved as the town jail was located adjacent to the square. Here, pressed against the rusting bars of their cell windows, was a selection of the local lawbreakers who showed great interest in the activities of the free world unfolding just beyond their grasp. The sponsor, at his expense, invited the club members to enjoy any drink they desired provided it contained Barcardi rum. Many of the attendees needed no second bidding and enjoyed a raucous evening telling tall tales and making new friends only to pay the price the next morning. The evening concluded with club president Steve Anear making a speech thanking the townspeople and the sponsor for their hospitality. The next day, as the club made its journey north, there remained one last memento of the trip. While everyone had been mindful of avoiding foodstuffs that might cause dietary upsets, no one had considered the ice that floated innocently in many of the drinks that were served that night. It would take a couple of days north of the border before all members would be restored to their normal youthful vigor Next week: Culture shock derails the club.

ting numbers were down. Harper said it didn’t help that news stations were incorrectly reporting the entire track was shut down. “Once that thing starts it takes a while to play out,” Harper said. “Still, the damage was done and I think our attendance showed it.” Two days of rain also contributed to a low turnout one weekend, he added. Harper said some of the “major players” who place daily bets “couldn’t get here until the second week of racing.” Despite the problems, Harper said, “All in all I think it was a pretty good meet.” He said things look a little more negative when compared to the 2013 sea-

People have also said they want a BMX track, a community garden and a dog park, so the team is looking into implementing those at Poinsettia Community Park.

attendance and discussion is sufficient,” the letter states, citing several cases that establish the precedent. “When the majority of a local legislative body attends a meeting dealing with its agency’s issues, even though it may neither discuss nor act upon matters connected with those issues, its mere presence to obtain information presented at the meeting is sufficient to trigger the open meeting requirements of
the Brown Act.” The letter demands the district rescind any decisions made by the board on the trip, and publicly acknowledge the transgression, as well as give an unconditional commitment to refrain from similar actions, during an agendized discussion at a future board meeting.

Ambulance drivers’ wait time to get a patient into a bed has more than doubled, going from 10 to 15 minutes, to 26 minutes to an hour, according to Overton. “That directly affects our service to the community,” said Overton. Jane Mitchell, vice
president of Medental International and a candidate for the Tri-City Healthcare District Board, believes the cutback on nursing hours is a way to save money.

proposals for the property’s temporary use. The IRS tax code governing tax-exempt bonds would restrict the property’s use to non-revenue generating activities. Many of the concepts the community has discussed for the property, such as leasing performing arts space to local arts groups, generate revenue and wouldn’t be allowed. Finance officials said determining what activities could be allowed on the property if financed with tax-exempt bonds would be a complex process that would require tax attorneys to help the city navigate the convoluted tax code. The IRS is the ultimate arbiter of what would be allowed on the property. If they determine the activities were private in nature, bondholders would be assessed taxes, and the city would be penalized potentially millions of dollars to cover the tax bill, Finance Manager Jay Lembach said.

for the first time Sept. 4 and all citations were approved, the staff report states. The economic downturn also allows violators to pay tickets in installments, which slows payments to the city, and there has been in increase in unpaid tickets going to collections, which is something the city has no control over. For cost savings, Delin said the city is looking into using a community service officer rather than a detective to review the tickets. Councilman Al Corti said he would like to see collision statistics from before the cameras were installed as well as after. He said he’d also like staff to look into other steps that can be taken to increase safety, such as lengthening the timing of yellow lights. Several San Diego cities have in recent years stopped using red-light cameras. A Redflex representative said that when Poway eliminated the system, the company continued capturing images for six months after the contract was terminated.
He said there was an increase in collisions. Del Mar’s 7-year contract with Redflex expires in June 2016, giving staff time to come back with “more robust data,” the city manager said, that will allow council to make a decision about extending the agreement. “I’m disappointed in the lack of data,” Mosier said. “I just have a hard time assessing what the safety benefit is, if any. It’s clear that this is an argument that has two sides. Are you getting the safety benefit and how much are you paying for that? “If we have this program that’s been going on since 2004 and we’re losing money even half the time, and we’re not getting the safety benefit, then I think I would be in favor of not renewing the program,” he added. “I have a hard time making a decision when we don’t really have meaningful safety data.” Corti agreed. “I’m not in favor of extending the contract unless somebody can demonstrate that they (the cameras) are (making the intersections) safer,” he said.

to Delin. Council members asked staff to look into the cameras after a major decrease in revenue from the devices was revealed in a June meeting. The drop in revenue can be attributed to several factors, Delin said. Motorists know where the cameras are and drive more carefully. As a result the city may relocate the camera that monitors northbound Camino del Mar at Via de la Valle because few violations have been captured at that intersection. Delin said more rigorous court standards for driver identification may also have contributed to lower revenue. Del Mar’s cameras have all been replaced with higher-resolution devices. The courts now require the city attorney rather than the deputy district attorney to issue a subpoena. According to the staff report, this is expected to streamline the process and decrease rejections by the court. This process was used
the property open for uses other than performing and visual arts. Others questioned if the city would have to pursue two separate bonds if they were issuing taxable bonds for the Pacific View purchase and tax-exempt for the lifeguard tower repair. Vina said the city’s finance team didn’t discuss taxable bonds until after the vote because they were unsure what the Council’s temporary plans were for the land. Once it was determined that some of the suggestions appeared out of line with what could be done with tax-exempt bonds, they promptly made alternative projections. “As more ideas were floated around, there was more need for flexibility,” Vina said. Council members, however, said that the discussions about the interim uses occurred well before the budget process began, which should have given ample opportunity to broach the possible need for taxable bonding.

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.

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.

On October 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM, at the entrance to the East County Regional Center by statue, 250 E. Main Street, El Cajon, CA 92020, MTC Financial Inc. dba Trustee Corps, as the duly Appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust recorded on March 29, 2005, as Instrument No. 2005-0252461, of official records in the Office of the Recorder of San Diego County, California, executed by KARINA REDBURN, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN, as Trustor(s), in favor of BENEFICIAL CALIFORNIA INC. as Beneficiary, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, in lawful money of the United States, all payable at the time of sale, that certain property situated in said County, California describing the land therein as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 7335 LINDEN TERRACE, CARLSBAD, CA 92009 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $623,665.38 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal
credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714-573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web
site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08002054-13-1. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

SCOUTS STAY BUSY
The Girl Scout Seniors of Troop 1177 chose to perform the Flag Ceremony for the Interfaith Shelter Network’s 2014 training session.

with its bar scene. The Council voted against the ordinance earlier this year and opted to step up enforcement and dedicate a city code enforcement officer to assist with the crackdown. The Council is expected to receive a report on the summer enforcement to see if its efforts have improved the problems. Blakespear, who is running for the open council seat, said while it was important for bars to be good neighbors, she wanted to hear the enforcement results before adopting a new ordinance. Kranz and Gaspar, who both voted against the deemed-approved ordinance, echoed Blakespear’s sentiments. Fidel argued that the proliferation of bars was
due to a flawed federal banking system. Fidel also called for the City Council to fire City Attorney Glenn Sabine and replace him with an environmental activist attorney to pursue true environmental reform. Cameron and Graboi, who has been an outspoken critic of Sabine, both said they believed the city should part ways with Sabine, and Cameron said she also believed the Council should replace City Manager Gus Vina. Another topic that generated some of the more pointed discussions was about the lighting at the Encinitas Community Park. Currently, the city does not plan to light the ball fields, but has the infrastructure in place to do so in the future. Cardiff residents have expressed concern about the lighting, which they
said would have environmental impacts and would be unnecessary for a youth park because kids could participate in activities during the day. “If the lights are 90 feet, it’s going to be ... in my backyard so I am right there with you,” said council candidate Alan Lerchbacker, who throughout the night touted his Naval and corporate background as providing him with strong leadership skills. Gaspar was the lone supporter of field lights. The mother of three young children, Gaspar said the lack of lit ball fields in town has forced teams to travel out of town for games and tournaments. “There is no reason families should be driving out to Ramona to play on a dirt field,” she said. One question that received unanimous support from the candidates was on
the importance of lowering or trenching the city’s section of the rail corridor. “Right now, access (to the beaches and across the rails) isn’t great,” Blakespear said. The resident who asked the question, and who supported the concept, also asked the candidates if they knew how much it would cost. Cameron estimated, using figures from the San Diego Association of Governments on the Interstate 5 corridor improvement project, which sets aside about $800 million for rail corridor improvements, that it would cost $152 million to trench Encinitas’ section. What it would take to advance it, she said, was regional will.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Slow and steady will be your best approach. You will be frustrated if you take on too many projects. Nothing will be accomplished to your satisfaction if you don’t pay attention to detail.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Social activities, love and romance are all highlighted. Don’t be afraid to show your romantic side. An escape from your regular routine will contribute to a happier personal life.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your compassion will shine in dealings with those you care about. Feel conﬁdent to enable beneﬁcial changes to take place. Make a difference by reaching out to those in need. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are always ahead of the crowd. Don’t be too hard on people who can’t keep up.

Major home transformation through one easy upgrade REGION — Throughout the day, it’s likely you open and shut every door inside your home. You’ve probably become used to the doors, and possibly even resigned to the fact that you’re stuck with the flat white model or even the six-panel variety that your home is filled with. If you’ve considered replacing your home’s interior doors, the thought of disruptive construction and considerable expense might have put you off. Dave Winter, president and CEO of HomeStory San Diego, has found a way to change all of that. The vision for HomeStory came about through Winter’s personal experience with replacing the doors in his home. When he decided he wanted to get an estimate, he had someone come out to his home. “The guy came in and told me it would probably take three days or maybe four,” Winter said. The contractor didn’t have a written quote for Winter, and also suggested that he find somewhere else for his wife and triplet 2-year-old daughters to stay during construction. Winter knew there had to be a better way. With a background in the tech industry, he developed a revolutionary device that enables measuring of doorways with 100 percent accuracy, allowing for custom fitting of doors with no construction necessary.
Additionally, the cost of replacing a door is reduced by about 30 percent as the need for high-cost laborers and construction permits is eliminated and work that would traditionally take days is reduced to two or three hours.
We come out and do a free consultation and estimate and measure all of the door openings in the home.” Dave Winter CEO of HomeStory
Realizing the industry needed such an affordable and reliable alternative for replacing interior home doors, Winter founded HomeStory and his customers couldn’t be happier. The process is simple. “We come out and do a free consultation and estimate and measure all of the door openings in the home,” Winter said. “We send the measurement data to our factory, which customizes the doors to fit, including
the painting of the doors with a high-quality finish. When we come out to your home to install the doors we are in and out in two to three hours because of the customization. There is no demo, no tearing apart door jams. The whole experience is unheard of in the industry. It’s really the best customer experience somebody can have.” Replacing your doors with HomeStory is not just quick and affordable — it’s transformational. “Doors touch every room in the house,” Winter said. “When you update the doors, it refreshes your house and brightens everything up. My customers tell me there is no other home improvement that can do this.” HomeStory offers a one-stop home improvement experience. “We sell the doors, we paint the doors at our factory and then we install them,” Winter said. “We have all kinds of doors — bedroom and bathroom swing doors, closet doors, glass and French doors and our most popular product — a new mirror reflections door that replaces the old aluminum sliding mirror doors. It’s a big upgrade and looks much more highend and sturdy.” To learn more about HomeStory San Diego or to schedule a consultation and free estimate, visit San DiegoI nter iorDoors. com or call (619) 373-1965.

San Diego’s Master Gardeners are a valued resource By Scott Parker
Struggling with ways to control all those ants crawling on your vegetables? What about the aphids and powdery mildew wreaking havoc in your flower beds? Have any idea how to replace your lawn with drought-tolerant landscaping? There are hundreds of garden experts ready to help you at no cost thanks to the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Master Gardeners program (mastergardenerSD.org). Here in San Diego, nearly 300 Master Gardeners volunteer thousands of hours each year to provide home gardening and pest control information throughout the county, free to the public. Master Gardeners are trained by the University of California Cooperative Extension and the County of San Diego Farm and Home Advisor experts in all aspects of home gardening with special emphasis on new pests and issues affecting the county. Their advice is based on UCbased research that includes the innovative Pest Notes — more than 150 helpful guides to pest-related problems and plant diseases. All Pest Notes can be downloaded from the Master Gardeners’ website or by visiting the state’s comprehensive website for home gardeners at ipm.ucanr.edu. You can also pick up printed versions by visiting the UCCE office at 9335 Hazard Way, Suite 201, San Diego, CA 92123. The Master Gardener program attracts volunteers who have a passion for gardening, and
Master Gardeners throughout San Diego County offer valuable resources on a variety of gardening questions, including offering a hotline (858) 822-6910 that is staffed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help educate and answer home gardening and pest management questions.
it is the county’s responsibility to make sure these trainees are given accurate, up-to-date information on home horticulture issues and taught how to properly research and respond to questions they get from local residents. In San Diego, the next Master Gar-
dener training course will be offered in 2016. Each class is popular, with only 48 students accepted from an applicant pool of 200. Master Gardeners receive six months of classroom training and educational field trips.
Instructors include experts in turf grasses, citrus, insects, vegetables, trees and shrubs. Students are certified as UCCE Master Gardeners after they successfully complete the training course and pass the final exam. The newly minted garden
experts must volunteer at least 50 hours/year in public outreach activities, helping to educate the public and answering questions on home gardening and pest management especially through the hotline (858) 822-6910, staffed Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Inquires also can be emailed to help@mastergardenerSD.org. Master Gardeners give advice at more than 100 annual events in the county, including the San Diego County Fair, in addition to speaking at local garden clubs, serving as consultants for more than 400 school gardens and 80 community gardens, and providing horticultural classes at local juvenile detention facilities. Their demonstration garden was on display this past spring at The Flower Fields in Carlsbad. This weekend, the Master Gardeners Plant Sale and Open House will be held at Balboa Park’s Casa del Prado from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Thousands of plants will be up for sale along with garden art, tools and books. And 15 different exhibits and demonstrations will cover myriad topics including water-wise plants, earth-friendly gardens, pest management, composting and gardening in small spaces. Plans are already underway for next year’s annual Spring Gardening Seminar March 21, 2015 because Master Gardeners are committed to helping other gardeners grow. Scott Parker is the UCCE Master Gardener Program Coordinator for San Diego County.
Family-owned Aspire Furniture transforms to coastal living SAN MARCOS — Aspire Furniture embraces its North County atmosphere by trading its predominantly Tuscan look for an exciting new Coastal style. Aspire, a family-owned retail furniture business in the San Diego marketplace, is highly regarded for emphasizing personal service, which helps its customers to unlock countless possibilities in terms of home furnishings. As a result of the continued success of the new coastal look in their Kauai showroom, the mainland business has decided to follow in its footsteps transitioning from Tuscan to Coastal. “We are emphasizing a fun, fresh, sophisticated coastal look that embodies multiple styles,” said Shannon Mercado, manager of the San Marcos location. “We

has satisfied its customers with quality furniture possessing a Tuscan flair. It wasn’t until four years ago when business owners Jeff and Cindy McGee headed for Kauai to open up a Coastal-oriented showroom. That vivacious style caught the attention of the mainland showroom, which hopes to have completed its Coastal transformation by Thanksgiving. All Tuscan furniture, art, and accessories are currently being sold at liquidated prices to facilitate the ongoing changes. Creating beautiful home environments for individual customers is the core principle of Aspire; according to Shannon Mercado. Going Coastal is the perfect way to embrace that philosophy. It’s a huge, stylish change for the company, and one that will match the vibrant, lively spirit of the San Diego region it serves. “It (Coastal) allows us to present a new element of excitement and gives us a fun, new direction to work with,” said Shannon. “San Diego is a coastal city and I want to bring that same refreshing level of comfort to our San Marcos showroom.” Aspire Furniture is located at 1040 Los Vallecitos Blvd., Ste. 103, San Marcos; call (760) 744-2662.

Drought Tolerant Plants for the San Diego garden — Think native By Lucy Warren
Garden with California native plants. Photos by Lucy Warren
BLACK WHALE �
Want a beautiful green landscape year round? Easy care and easy on water, as well? It may be time to consider what Mother Nature has to offer. California has the greatest number of indigenous plants in North America! And, they are adapted to the environment that surrounds us. In the past few years, more growers are experimenting with native plants and expanding the availability and diversity for gardeners. The natural variety is seemingly endless. There are stately trees from oaks to cypress to desert olives-from gigantic to patio size for small gardens. California native shrubs abound in all sizes, shapes and leaf colors. The manzanitas have multiple varieties which range from tall trees to groundcovers — as do the California lilacs, which provide beautiful blooms in springtime from deepest indigo to pure white. Brilliant seasonal and perennial flowering plants abound in springtime, such as Penstemon ‘Margarita BOP’ or the perky monkey flowers. Some shrubs bloom for months on end, such as the Island Bush Poppy with its large gray-green foliage and yellow poppy flowers. Or, perhaps you prefer some of the many sages. Native plants can be substituted for ornamental plants in any style of landscape. At the 2013 San Diego County Fair, San Diego Botanic Garden challenged local native plant landscaper, Greg Rubin, to design a Japanese-style garden utilizing exclusively drought tolerant native plants. The result was spectacular! Most homeowners now have a typical grass lawn, which uses a lot of water and amendments and requires frequent mowing. You can save from 60 to 90 percent of your landscape water by installing a more interesting and attractive native plant landscape. As an additional benefit, a lightly hydrated native landscape also has high fire resistance. So why don’t more homeowners use native landscaping to save water, money and maintenance? Primarily because they do not understand the plants. They may have even bought a few to put in their garden and watched them decline. It can be very difficult to mix natives with non-natives. Here’s why. Because native plants evolved in a demanding ecology, they developed survival patterns that are different from the ornamental plants we buy from most nurseries. For one thing, California natives grow in communities rather than competing for resources. If you take a drive outside of developed areas, you can easily see rocky hillsides filled with a mix of thriving native plants without irrigation or fertilizer.
SERVING C ALIFORNIA SINCE 1973
Island Bush Poppy (Dendromecon harfordii)
Plus, the native plant ecology is more than just the plants. Native species grow in community with soil microorganisms to mutual benefit. These organisms help to feed and hydrate the natives with minimal interference on our part. The organisms are all around, they don’t need to be added to the soil. The two best ways to kill natives are to over water and to fertilize. This “special attention” breaks the bond between the plants and their soil benefactors, leaving them open to pathogens and disease. Drought tolerant means less water or low water, not NO water. Even natives benefit from a periodic light overhead spray—think coastal mists—to dust off the leaves and lightly rehydrate the mulch under the plants. The Master Gardener Plant Sale at Casa del Prado in Balboa Park Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. will have informational displays on natives and other drought tolerant plants, with experts to answer questions.

Anderson’s La Costa Nursery gains new owners Gardeners across Southern California breathed a sigh of relief this August when it was announced that Anderson’s La Costa nursery had been acquired by a family intent on preserving the garden’s rich legacy. Anderson’s, premier nursery located two blocks west of Interstate 5 on La Costa Avenue, has been a favorite among nursery goers for nearly 60 years. “Anderson’s La Costa Nursery in an institution.

Tour to feature homes with a Modern style By Tony Cagala
ENCINITAS — Things are developing in the right way for architect Soheil Nakhshab. The 33-year-old, who grew up in Encinitas with a passion for art and mathematics, has been fortunate enough to combine the two subjects and turn them into a successful career. As CEO/principal of Nakhshab Development Design, Inc. Nakhshab has 10 new contracts for projects in San Diego, including one slated for Cape Town, South Africa later this year. Four of his homes will be part of the 2014 Modern Home Tour Sept. 27. The tour, hosted by the Texas-based Modern Home Tours, LLC, will be showcasing Modern architecture-influenced homes in San Diego County, including the Lahaye house in Olivenhain, which Nakhshab designed. Nakhshab said the Modern concepts he employs have all existed since the 1950s and ‘60s. But for people in the industry — the designers, the developers — it’s their responsibility to make sure they show people what true living is, he said. “At the end of the day, we’re still animals. We need to have that connection with nature. It gives us a better lifestyle,” he said.

to experience,” says Solana Beach gardening guru Sharon McCarty. “It’s one of the few nurseries where you can talk with people who have a deep knowledge of plants and how to care for them. They carry a great selection of plants from around the world that are locally grown. If I need something special, they’ll have it or they’ll find it for me.” Anderson’s new owners, Mariah and Marc Smiths, purchased the nursery in August. They plan to retain all of the garden center’s current employees and make significant investments to build upon the previous owner’s success. “We feel really lucky,” says manager Marc Smith. “Anderson’s has great customers and we love its peaceful and beautiful setting near the ocean. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and super talented. We spent 10 years waiting for the perfect nursery and it was well worth the wait.” According to award-winning designer Shad Bruce of Concept 45, Anderson’s style and approach set it apart from the competition. “It’s not a generic “big box” garden center,” says Bruce. “When I’m designing a custom outdoor environment or furniture,
I often collaborate with the people at Anderson’s. They have great designers whose fingers are on the pulse of style. They help you avoid costly landscaping mistakes and create beautiful outdoor spaces. I also appreciate their focus on sustainability and buying from local growers and artisans.” Stepping into Anderson’s is like stepping back into time. The boutique nursery and design center has deep roots in the gardening and horticultural community dating back to 1956 when Horace and Mary Anderson first opened their doors. Its location, just five blocks from the ocean in Leucadia, is a reminder of a bygone era for Southern California nurseries. Inside the nursery, visitors find more than an acre of plants, pottery, fountains and garden décor. The nursery stocks an abundance of plants from every continent, including: succulents, edibles, ornamentals, native and drought-tolerant, cactus, shrubs, and ornamental trees. Visitors can explore a charming gift shop, a secret garden filled with herbs, veggies and playhouse. They can also browse a greenhouse filled with a spectacular array of tropical indoor plants. The nursery carries organic fertilizers, soil amendments and pest control products, including beneficial organisms used for natural pest control. In additions to plants, Anderson’s carries a beautiful selection of pottery, and one of the largest selections of garden fountains in the area. Should you find more than fits in your car, no problem — Anderson’s can deliver. Anderson’s designers have helped hundreds of Southern California gardens beautify their yards and gardens. From vision to completion, Anderson’s designers make it easy to build a dream garden. “We can help homeowners enhance their yards and avoid costly mistakes. Through every step of the process from plant selections to placement,” says Marc Smith, manager at Anderson’s. “Our mission is simple: We help create unique, useful and beautiful outdoor living spaces.”

Family fun, quality tables are a tradition at Billiards & Barstools You may have heard the best way to keep families together is to gather around the table. For Darrell Meddings, owner of Billiards & Barstools, that means gathering around the pool table or game table. Billiards & Barstools sells and services pool tables, games and entertainment room furnishings. “It’s all about family fun,” Meddings said. The staff at Billiards & Barstools has a full knowledge of pool tables and antiques. Services include sales, restoration and moving tables. “Our strong points are a knowledgeable and able staff,” Meddings said. Billiards & Barstools has two locations — one in Valencia and one in San Marcos — with large, newly remodeled showrooms. “We carry the best brands,” Meddings said, “We have a complete line of pool tables, furniture and accessories.” Billiards & Barstools carries Brunswick tables, made by the No. 1 pool table manufacturer. The handcrafted Brunswick pool tables are something people can pass on for generations, Meddings said. Brunswick has been making pool tables since 1845. The complete selection of pool tables at Billiards & Barstools includes a range of table
prices from top of the line to beginner tables. “From the low end up we have a variety of brands,” said Meddings. “There’s a starting price point for everyone’s budget.”
We’re selected and called to do this because of our knowledgeable staff” Darell Meddings Owner, Billiards & Barstools
No matter what your skill level at the game, the benefit of family fun can always be enjoyed. Pool tables bring the family together. When families play pool, they talk, laugh, and joke. “That doesn’t happen looking at a picture tube,” Meddings said. Even customers who do not expect to enjoy the family purchase find themselves playing. A customer recently called to say how much his wife enjoys the pool table. “She’s out there playing pool with our son.” Meddings enjoys plain pool
with his family and friends and now plays with his grandchildren. Pool is a universal game everyone can enjoy. Families aren’t the only people visiting Billiards & Barstools. The company has serviced and installed tables for the women’s professional pool tournament at Viejas for the last 10 years. Billiards & Barstools also serviced and installed tables for the men’s pool tournament in Los Angeles. “We’re selected and called to do this because of our knowledgeable staff,” Meddings said. “Customers say when we install the tables they never have to worry, they know they’re done right.” Professional service is key. Pool tables need to be moved and set up the right way. It’s essential tables are torn apart, levels are reset, and felt is recovered correctly. There is a lot that goes into putting a table together. Tables need to be professionally leveled. The difference in the level of a table is precise — less than the thickness of a business card. “Customer service is one thing we pride ourselves in. Our guys are professionals who are trained in setup and have knowledge of antiques. I have over 40 years experience. It’s very important to have a full knowledge
of pool tables when you’re putting one together,” Meddings said. Billiards & Barstools offers full services to move, recover and restore tables in Southern California. “I hear horror stories of people trying to move tables themselves, even if it’s to have new carpet put in,” Meddings said. They mess them up, pop a slate, or snap an apron.” Pool tables should be handled by an experienced service person. They even move tables out of state. “We deliver all over, as far as Tahoe and Mammoth,” Meddings said. “We have customers coming inform 300 miles.

Carlsbad’s SummerHouse makes second-home living a seaside experience With direct access to surf and sand, and sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Buena Vista Lagoon, Zephyr Partners’ Carlsbad community SummerHouse is the perfect place for second-home buyers to find a new home away from home. The enclave of 35 luxury beach condos being built in the heart of Carlsbad is just steps from the beach and a short stroll to the village. Homeowners will enjoy an ideal seaside living experience with a full range of recreational options nearby, including the ocean for fishing, hiking, paddle boarding and water skiing, and Calaveras Park for hiking, mountain biking, and fishing. Living the beach lifestyle is all about comfort and ease, which is why SummerHouse is offering a luxurious concierge service that will cut down on planning time and maximize fun in the sun. An onsite concierge service will be on hand to perform a range of helpful tasks such as scheduling a surf lesson or walking the dog. The concierge attendant will also be able to provide kayaks, paddle boards, beach chairs, bicycles, tents and any other equipment beach-living residents might need for their daily adventures. “SummerHouse is an oasis perfect for second-home buyers looking for a vacation home to relax and enjoy their favorite hobbies,” said Brad Termini, Zephyr Partners’ co-CEO.
More extensive at-home services such as personal grocery shopping, cooking and dry cleaning — services typically found only in a high-end resort or highrise – may also be available. These beach condos are located at 2303 Ocean St., a half-mile from the Coaster Station and a short ride to downtown San Diego, the Zoo and SeaWorld. It is also in close proximity to Palomar Airport, which offers private and commercial flights. On-site amenities include a pool, fire pits and cabanas, and a fitness center.

Water deliveries throughout California have been seriously impacted by the long drought. The resulting shortfall has forced many agricultural regions to draw excessive amounts of water from groundwater basins, which in dry years can provide up to 46 percent of the state’s total water supply. In response, the Legislature hastily passed three bills in the closing weeks of the 2014 session governing water management policies for groundwater basins. Senate Bills 1168, 1319 and Assembly Bill 1739 have all been forwarded to Governor Brown for his signature. The need to update
the state’s groundwater regulations is readily apparent. Indeed, many groundwater basins have been critically overdrawn for decades, long before the current drought. However, this legislation infringes on private property rights and punishes groundwater users in basins that have had little or no overdraft or already enforce effective management policies. Furthermore, these bills were rushed through with little time for public review. It took nearly ten years to pass the water bond being submitted to voters in November; surely we can take a few more months before enacting permanent and sweeping changes to California’s
groundwater policies. Unlike the water bond, which passed with wide bi-partisan support, this legislation has generated bi-partisan criticism. The agricultural community, an industry directly impacted by these proposals, has been conspicuous in its opposition. Consequently, I have joined legislators from both parties to ask Governor Brown to veto these bills. Given time, legislation can be drafted next session that respects local control and private property rights while avoiding overreaching state interference over this irreplaceable resource. Marie Waldron is the state Assemblymember for District 75.

BARN OWL NEST BOXES Installed
‘Sick building syndrome’ topic of conference By Aaron Burgin
REGION — If you find yourself constantly with the sniffles and sneezes, it might not be the family pet — your home could be making you sick, advocates for environmentally friendly buildings said. Officials with the San Diego Green Building Council gave the phenomena a nickname, “sick building syndrome,” and according to US Environmental Protection Agency Statistics, it contributes to everything from absenteeism at work to headaches, migraines and asthma attacks.

“It is a general term to describe the impacts that buildings have on us physiologically and biologically, and those impacts are 100 percent real,” said Ravi Bajaj, the education manager of the San Diego Green Building Council. “There are impacts from how we respond from a productivity standpoint to how we biologically respond to the lack of fresh air in a space, or the amount of toxins increase in a space, or with respect to ventilation, since we breathe out carbon dioxide, without proper ventilation those higher concentrations of CO2 can lead to exhaustion, and in higher concentrations, very extreme health impacts as well.” Advocates of “green” building practices said that sick building syndrome will only be curtailed if builders change the way they build, including increasing access to natural light, using socalled healthy building materials and creating more energy efficient structures. Many of these topics will be discussed Sept. 23 at the Council’s second annual Healthy Buildings and Communities Conference, at San Diego Gas & Electric’s Energy Innovation Center in Kearny Mesa. The eight-hour event will feature two keynote speakers: Dr. Elizabeth Baca from Gov. Jerry Brown’s Office of Planning and Research will discuss the impacts of community and building design on health and well-being. Peter Rumsey from Point Energy Innovations will speak on the passive and “timeless” strategies that can be used to optimize building performance. It will also include breakout sessions on topics such as zero waste, watershed management and green infrastructure, healthy building materials and energy efficiency for existing buildings. Proponents of green building said events like this are crucial, as on average Americans spend 90 percent of their time indoors, much of it in traditional buildings that expose them to higher concentration of pollutants than found outdoors. An infographic created by the Council, which cites statistics from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other sources, says that green building leads to fewer absences and better performance at work and school, and fewer episodes of asthma, allergies and headaches. San Diego is one of the leaders in the green building movement. Countywide, more than 400 projects — about 48 million square feet of building space — have received the U.S. Green Building Council’s “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design,” or LEED certification. The rating system is considered the stamp of approval for energy efficient and environmentally friendly standards in building con-
struction. San Diego is also home to the nation’s first “Energy Star” certified building, the Ridgehaven project, which is home to the city’s Environmental Services Department. Still, the county lags behind many of the cities that have really taken hold of the green movement, such as San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and New York. “We have roots in the beginning of the green building movement,” Bajaj said. “Where we have room for improvement is spreading from those few isolated projects to general sustainability across the board.” Ergo, the theme of the conference emphasizes communities, Bajaj said, focusing on how builders can spread those green principles from one building to an entire cluster of buildings and ultimately, create communities that are green. In addition to the environmental benefits, builders benefit financially because the green upgrades ultimately lower operating costs, Bajaj said. “We don’t know with certainty when gas, fuel or water costs will rise, but we do know with certainty that they are rising,” Bajaj said. “Sustainability puts you in a place where you reducing those operating costs and saving money.” The conference costs $40 to attend for council members, $50 for non-members and $60 at the door. Members can bring one free guest. To register, visit the website at: usgbc-sd.org/ event-868747

Hosts may want to consider gluten-free foods at dinner parties When hosting a dinner party, hosts might be asked to provide some gluten-free foods. Gluten is a general name for proteins found in wheat that help foods maintain their shape. But gluten also can be found in cereal grains such as rye and barley as well as a variety of crossbreeds. Gluten is not unhealthy, but many people are gluten-intolerant. When such people, who may suffer from celiac disease, consume gluten, they may be triggering an immune system response that damages their intestines and prevents them from absorbing nutrients they need to stay healthy. Some gluten-intolerant people may be suffer-
ing from a wheat allergy that can produce various reactions to wheat allergens. Party hosts concerned about guests with a gluten intolerance may want to consult those guests about which foods they can and cannot eat. A gluten-free diet typically forbids gluten-intolerant men, women and children from consuming bread, beer, french fries, pasta, salad dressing, soy sauce, and certain soups. However, many food manufacturers have begun to produce gluten-free alternatives to popular foods and beverages, making it easier than ever for dinner party hosts to cater to gluten-intolerant guests.

Getting the most out of farmers markets and seasonal produce (BPT) — Warm weather months bring an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, and for those who enjoy buying local, farmers markets are popular destinations. Produce choices available at farmers markets are now reaching their peak. So how can you make the most of this seasonal bounty? Chef Daniel Reyes, culinary faculty member at The Art Institute of California - Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University, believes that it’s important to know the difference between buzzwords common at markets. “If you have questions about how farmers do something, they are more than happy to talk to
you and educate you about sustainable and organic farming,” he says. Reyes explains that while some produce may look unfamiliar, a good market salesperson will provide tips on how to use the items. Farmers markets are not just great places to buy, they’re also great places to learn new culinary techniques and food pairings. Another tip? Shop early — that’s when chefs at are the markets. “Chefs are usually there early in the morning. See what they are buying,” says Reyes.

recommends asking farmers what’s best to buy right now. “They grow whatever they sell, which makes them experts. Ask to put be put on their email list. They may send out information about what is in season and what to do with it,” she adds. Thompson makes it a point to try something new each time she visits a farmers market. “Sample everything! That is how the farmers sell their products, and you will know what you like.” CSA - Community Supported Agriculture In addition to visiting the farmers market, many people are choosing to become CSA shareholders, paying in advance for weekly boxes of produce. CSAs create a direct relationship between farmer and consumer, according to Thompson. CSAs allow busy people to pick up their share boxes at a convenient location, and teach them how to use what’s inside. For those interested in supporting local farmers, CSAs provide a critical influx of cash to farmers during the off-season, helping them to better prepare for the planting season ahead. Whether shopping weekly at the farmers market or picking up a CSA box of fresh produce, buying local allows consumers to taste fruit and vegetables at their peak flavor. From striped heirloom tomatoes to strawberries picked fresh just hours before, farm fresh foods provide a burst of flavor and a connection to the community that cannot be found within a large supermarket.

These plants can help to Black Whale Lighting shines new light on industry improve indoor air quality Indoor air quality is not often an issue in the warmer months, when many homeowners open their windows to let the fresh air of the great outdoors enter their homes in abundance. But once the temperatures begin to dip and windows start to close, indoor air quality can suffer. Musty air is not only uncomfortable, it’s also unhealthy. Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, can build up inside a home, especially when windows are kept shut for long stretches of time, which is often the case in winter. Indoor plants can counter such stale air, in some cases filtering out VOCs to make the air inside a home more breathable and healthy. The following are a handful of houseplants that can improve indoor air quality. • Aloe: Many of us know aloe for its restorative properties with regard to treating burns and cuts, but aloe also improves indoor air quality by helping to clear a home of the byproducts, including formaldehyde, of chemical-based household cleaners. Aloe loves the sun, so if you hope to keep an aloe plant healthy through the winter, be sure to place the plant in a window that gets lots of sun exposure throughout the day. • Gerber daisy: Like aloe, a gerber daisy needs ample sunlight, and tends to only withstand winters in warmer climates. But homeown-
ers who live in such climates may still keep their windows closed in winter, and those that do can use these colorful, low-maintenance flowers to remove trichloroethylene, a chemical that clothes may be exposed to during the dry cleaning process. • Golden pothos: The golden pothos can survive a winter, but homeowners should be careful not to let the plant dry out, which can happen if they are directly exposed to sunlight. A golden pothos vine will grow quickly, so a hanging basket is a great way to keep one inside a home, where the plant can help fight formaldehyde. • Ficus benjamina: Also known as a weeping fig, the ficus benjamina can be difficult to overwinter. But that does not mean your ficus benjamina, which can filter pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from a home, won’t make it through the winter. You just need to figure out the right watering and light conditions for the plant. Such conditions can be discussed with a gardening professional. • Warneck dracaena: The warneck dracaena, or dracaena deremensis, fights pollutants created by varnishes and oils. The warneck dracaena is a sturdy houseplant that is difficult to kill, but it still thrives in temperatures that are between 70 F and 80 F.
On Carlsbad Boulevard in North County, two pioneering women named Louise Adams and Lorraine Lane opened shop in downtown Carlsbad selling lighting fixtures, lamps shades and providing lamp repair. They enjoyed much success, but wanted to travel and be closer to family so they decided to sell the store in 1982. Paul Schaeffer took over as the charismatic designer and made his main focus lampshades, repairs and custom lamps. Paul collected, amassed, acquired, stockpiled, and salvaged some of Southern California’s most unusual lamps. During his ownership he also brought the store back to Carlsbad from Oceanside. When current owners Kirsten and Alan Recce passed by an antique store in downtown Carlsbad. With her background in antiques and personal property appraising, Kirsten was intrigued to discover a small area set aside featuring Paul’s unique business of lamps. A small wooden sign with a carved black whale hung over the small repair area. A friendship resulted between Kirsten and Paul, and three months later Kirsten purchased his business. This year, the company is celebrating the milestone achievement of 20 years in business.

Bird feeding faux pas? Five easy, no-fret fixes
Fabulous food, pretty presentation and attention to detail can earn you a reputation as an amazing host among your human guests. But when you serve your elmcroft.com feathered friends, are you
committing a feeding faux pas that you fear may prove unforgivable? Birds may be small, but they pack long memories into those little craniums, and they won’t soon forget if you serve the

Birds need water to drink and bathe in order to keep their feathers in top flight condition. Faux pas No. 3 - Tolerating uninvited guests. Birds aren’t the only ones who love bird food; squirrels are big fans of seeds and no-melt dough as well, and they’re experts at stealing seed from bird feeders. Left unchallenged, squirrels can drain feeders quickly, leaving nothing for the birds. They can also cause damage to feeders and frighten away more timid bird species. Black birds can also be a problem. The fix: You wouldn’t attack a pesky neighbor who showed up uninvited at your backyard barbecue, and you don’t want to harm squirrels either - just dissuade them from bothering bird feeders. One option is to stock your no-melt dough feeders with Hot Pepper No-Melt Dough. Birds can’t taste the heat, but squirrels sure hate it. Also, squirrels do not like Safflower Seed, but birds sure do. Black birds don’t like Safflower Seed either and won’t bother your feeders if you offer it. Faux pas No. 4 - Overlooking the importance of ambiance.

The fix: Choose a calm, sunny location for feeders — spots east or south of your house will probably provide the most protection from cold northern winds.

THREE PETALS. Designed by Herencia Del Rico and Max Magac. The New School of Architecture, San Diego
Finalists chosen for Sukkah Design Competition REGION — Three in- sen as finalists by a panel of spired and imaginative judges for the Sukkot at the Sukkah designs were cho- Ranch Design Competition. The three finalists are: Herencia Del Rico and Max Magac, students of the New School of Architecture in San Diego, Calif.; Yoshi Silverstein, founder and lead designer-educator of Mitsui Design, based in Washington D.C. who previously served as Education Director of Kayam Farm at the Pearlstone Center and as Jewish Environmental Educator at the Teva Learning Center; and Chris and Sasha Verone, a husband and wife architecture team, also based in San Diego. Volunteers will construct the designs on the Ranch at 441 Saxony Road in Encinitas Oct. 5. The winning design will be chosen by people’s choice and awarded $3,600 at the Sukkot at the Ranch Festival Oct. 12. The Sukkah Design Competition invited designers to reimagine the ancient temporary structure known as a Sukkah, which has been built during the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot since biblical times. A Sukkah is traditionally erected for one week each autumn to commemorate the holiday of Sukkot in celebration and gratitude of the harvest. It is customary, within the temporary walls of the Sukkah, to share meals, entertain, and rejoice. Judges chose the designs from a pool of 17 submissions from California, New York and Washington D.C. The Judges included: Rob Quigley, San Diego architect most known for the New Central Library; Christopher Hawthorne, Los Angeles Times architecture critic; Davidson Norris, New York-based architect and daylighting designer; Mia Lehrer, Los Angeles architect; and Jessica Lee Vences, one of last year’s winning designers from a team at the NewSchool of Architecture + Design. “The selected finalists (mostly) reveal a bias on the part of the jury for Sukkahs…that were physically delicate, visually light and potentially nomadic, whose skins were photonically translucent and that confused the perceived boundaries between inside and out, sky and earth. They were composed of materials that were resolutely of and
in the organic world, all to suggest that the Sukkah is as much a creation of the mind as it is a dwelling on the ground,” said Davidson Norris. This year’s themes are release and renewal and the three dimensional canvas to express these themes is the Sukkah. Each Sukkah is required to adhere to the following guidelines: the structure must be temporary; it must have at least two-and-a-half walls; it must be big enough to contain a table and most of a person’s body; and it must have a roof made of shade-providing organic materials through which a person can see the stars. Three Petals Designed by Herencia Del Rico and Max Magac The New School of Architecture, San Diego From the designers: “Three Petals formally resembles and is homage to the tipi – the temporary shelter used by many of America’s nomadic natives…and is a remembrance of the 40 years Jews existed in their own nomadic state. The festival of Sukkot is a time for spiritual reflection, so the upwardly sloping walls…direct the eyes of the visitor toward the heavens.” From Jessica Lee Vences, judge “The use of three petals is very symbolic because the number three is significant in spirituality. The lightness of the structure contributes to the temporary feeling of the Sukkah.

Home projects perfect for ‘staycationers’ The “staycation” was a concept many first acquainted themselves with when the economy started to struggle and men and women were forced to tighten their belts. In lieu of trips overseas or family trips to popular tourist destinations, many men and women opted to stay home and save their money. While the idea of a staycation makes practical sense, many found that idling away a week of hardearned vacation at home could grow somewhat boring after a few days. But whether a staycation is a week-long escape from the office or a three-day weekend, homeowners can tackle a few projects around the house to turn their time at home into one marked by productivity instead of boredom. • Add a splash of color. One of the easiest and most effective ways to give a home a new look is to repaint the home’s interior. Such a project can be a small-scale undertaking focusing on one or two rooms in the house or a more ambitious exercise in which more lived-in rooms like a family room and/or kitchen are given an entirely new color scheme. When removing old paint, consider using sanding pads to make the task easier than the days or yore, when paint was often tediously scraped off of walls with a putty knife. Parents on staycation can even involve the whole family in their painting project, allowing youngsters to choose new colors for their rooms and do a little work with the paintbrush as well. • Say farewell to old faucets. Faucets have a unique way of making bathrooms appear dated. But vanity faucets can quickly and easily be replaced so long as the main problem is appearance and not plumbing. Homeowners who suspect potential plumbing problems with sinks should seek a consultation with a professional before replacing vanity faucets. Once the go-ahead has been granted, homeowners can spend a weekend or a day or two during their staycation replacing vanity faucets around the home. Though the project might seem small, it can yield dramatic and aesthetically appealing results. Staycations have grown increasingly popular over the last half decade, as many homeowners are opting to forgo costly vacations in favor of staying home to pad their nest eggs. While it’s important for staycationers to squeeze in some rest and relaxation, it also can be beneficial to tackle a few projects around the house during time away from the office.

Some bugs will overwinter in the indoors Winter weather may not be enticing to some people, but many people enjoy the absence of insects when the mercury drops. When temperatures dip, insects that do not have the benefit of body fat need to find different methods to riding out the chilly weather. Like bears and groundhogs, some insects hibernate, while others move to warmer locations for survival. Although insects may be less prevalent outdoors, homeowners often see an increase of insect activity indoors during the winter, when bugs seek out more cozy accommodations. The following are some of the insects homeowners may see more frequently as colder weather arrives.
ware, scientists have observed high numbers of stink bugs found piled six inches deep in some traps. To keep stink bugs out, seal any cracks around the windows and doors with caulk. Patch any tiny holes in the walls and use foam sprays to patch up holes around outdoor electrical outlets.
Ladybugs (Ladybird beetles) Ladybugs, with their vivid redand-black markings, may not cause concern when found in gardens. But when found in large numbers inside of the house, ladybugs should cause concern. They do not pose any health or infestation risks, but they can be pests in large numbers indoors. Many ladybugs will leave the home in the spring when they’re done hibernating.

ing it up is the key to keeping them out. Camelback crickets The camelback cricket, also known as the camel cricket or spider cricket, is a strange-looking bug. It has the body of a cricket, but the long, arched legs of a spider. They are brown or striped, but unlike other types of crickets, these insects do not have wings, so they are silent and will not alert you to their presence with the familiar chirping noise. Furthermore, camelback crickets have spectacular jumping abilities. They have poor eyesight and usually jump toward a predator attempting to scare it away. This can make the cricket seem aggressive. It will not harm people, but because they are omnivores, camelback crickets can eat just about anything in your home and also will eat their own. They like dark, warm, damp environments, so removing these conditions can reduce the number of crickets you find indoors. To further prevent indoor insect populations, take preemptive measures in the fall. Spray the exterior of the home with an insecticide and keep mulch or damp leaves away from the perimeter. If insects become troublesome, consult with an exterminator.
What are you keeping in your 21st-century survival kit? Of the 1,272 federal disaster declarations issued in the last decade, more than half were classified as major disasters. These include calamities such as floods, hurricanes and tropical storms, winter storms, and others. “Most major disasters displaced hundreds or thousands of people from home and work, and nearly all involved a temporary or prolonged loss of major services and necessities, including power, communications, and running water,” said Jonathan Bacon, director of marketing at Wilson Electronics, a maker of communications equipment in St. George, Utah. “We began thinking about what has changed in technology and society, and how that would affect what we would want to have in an emergency ‘go-pack’,” Ba-
con said. “A lot of what we would take with us hasn’t changed, but some of what we’d desire today had not been invented 10 years ago. We came up with six items that were either invented or radically improved in the last 10 years. We call it the 21st Century Survival Kit.” 1. Cell phone signal booster: “We’re all extremely dependent on smartphones for voice and data communications. Already widely used by first responders and news crews when initially entering disaster zones, the Sleek 4G, a portable cell phone signal booster from Wilson Electronics, helps to transmit and receive calls and data via cell towers unaffected by a disaster. In a severe situation like Hurricane Sandy where all communications were compromised for several days,
having a cell booster could save precious hours of driving time to find a strong cell signal.” 2. Batteries: Two portable lithium-ion batteries, each with a minimum capacity of 10,000mAh, is enough for one battery to fully charge at least three smartphones or to power a tablet, netbook, or cell booster for several hours. 3. Portable solar panel: “These solar panels weigh only about a pound and are very practical for charging portable batteries and devices,” said Bacon. He recommended a panel capable of producing at least 10 Watts of power and one amp of current. 4. LED headlamp: Also powered by rechargeable batteries, the latest generation of these types of lamps have adjustable brightness to maximize battery life
and can be made bright enough to cast light more than 100 feet. 5. Two-way FRS/GMRS radios: “When even a Wilson booster can’t find a cell signal, these radios provide a communications range up to 30 miles,” said Bacon. 6. Microbial filter straw: This is used for drinking water that may be contaminated with bacteria, organic and waterborne chemicals, and other harmful elements. One filter straw can filter 30 gallons of water. “A lot has happened just in the last 10 years to make keeping in contact and avoiding health risks easier under adverse conditions,” said Bacon. All of these products are readily available, weigh less than five pounds total and take up little room in a backpack.
lenging. But if kids are old enough, moms and dads can enlist their youngsters’ help when working on projects around the house. Not only can adults keep closer tabs on kids’ activities, but involving kids in home projects also lets parents instill important and practical lessons at the same time. When asked to pitch in on home projects, young kids may feel proud they can lend a hand with such a “grown-up” task. • Include children from the start. When beginning a project, parents can make their kids a part of the design and planning process, welcoming the input of younger members of the family, especially if renovations will impact spaces they use directly. Draft a list of supplies and ask questions of the kids regarding what supplies they think will have to go into completing the project. • Shop as a family. Although it may slow you down, take children along to the home improvement store so you can purchase supplies together. Let youngsters help you as you choose materials for the project. This way they can see how the raw materials will turn into the finished renovation. • Emphasize safety. Children should understand that tools serve a distinct purpose and that they are not toys. Identify and explain the dangerous pieces of equipment and instruct children that they should not touch or turn on tools without an adult nearby. Go over the proper ways to handle the tools and explain the purposes of each device. Make sure everyone is wearing safety equipment, including eye protection, gloves and ear protection, while handing the tools. • Demonstrate and then let kids try. Children will not have the skills to perform more intricate tasks, but older kids can hammer some nails, mix paint or even cut wood with supervision. Assign tasks based on the child’s age. For example, a preteen may be able to saw wood, while a kindergartener can hand over nails and tools. Illustrate the correct way to get things done and then have children mirror your actions. • Attempt an easy project first. Painting a room, building a planter box, or another less complicated project can help parents gauge their kids’ abilities. Involving children in home improvement projects can teach then new skills, give them a greater appreciation of the work that goes into maintaining a house, instill a sense of pride in youngsters, and provide a great chance for kids and their parents to spend quality together.

Glamorous camping, or “Glamping” is becoming a growing trend for some campers. Courtesy photo
What happens when camping and glamour collide? (BPT) — You love the great outdoors, you really do but you were somehow gifted with that sweet blood mosquitoes crave. Not only that but your body simply doesn’t do well sleeping on the ground and, let’s be honest, it takes no small amount of lighter fluid and matches for you to warm your hands over an open fire. Travel inspiration website DreamPlanGo suggests you go “glamping” instead. Short for glamorous camping, glamping gives travelers the best of both indoor and outdoor worlds. As in, explore the majesty of Yellowstone, but return to a down bed and gourmet meal at the end of the day. Sound alright? Keep reading. Choosing your glampsite — Unlike traditional camping where pitching a tent and maybe inflating an air mattress are your only accommodation options, glamping offers you much more to choose from. Does a treetop abode with running water and goose-down comforters speak to you? What about a yurt or villa? Regardless of your budget, country preference or sleeping needs, you’re bound to find a glampsite that speaks to you.
No need to pack — You’ll still need to bring clothes, of course, and hiking gear, but no need to do the heavy lifting. Leave the cookware, lanterns, sleeping bags and clumsy tent at home. What you’ll be doing — The beauty of glamping is that you can still enjoy the rush of fly fishing and reinvigorating hikes, you just won’t have to worry about meals or getting a poor night’s sleep. Depending on where you glamp, you may even have access to more activities and excursions than you would camping. Many hosts are extremely knowledgeable and will go to great lengths to ensure you have memorable experiences to write home about.

troll around the lobby and hallways of the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa and you’ll find photos on the walls of just about every notable movie star from the 1940s and 1950s that you can think of. They all had one thing in common beyond their celebrity: they appeared in well known films shot in and around Lake Arrowhead. The film titles reach as far back as the 1930s and continue to the present. According to the IMBd website, more than 140 movies were made with the lake and surrounding wooded hills as backdrops. Even some television series like “House M.D.” were filmed in Lake Arrowhead. One locale holds a heap of Hollywood history. It’s the 23,000-square-foot Tudor House complex, built in 1928 by mobster Bugsy Siegel who entertained the film industry’s elite. Originally called Club Arrowhead of the Pines, the complex offered gambling, illegal booze and a brothel, and featured secret tunnels and its own well for making moonshine. Lake Arrowhead was the perfect place for fun and illegal play, explained tour guide and native resident John Richardson, “because Bugsy knew it would take the cops all day to get up here. That gave him plenty of time to hide everything and everybody.” Richardson gave up plenty of stories and gossip as he piloted the resort’s boat around the lake late one afternoon. He pointed out many lakeshore mansions and told of their past and current, rich-and-famous owners: actor Nicholas Cage; comedian Roseanne Barr; radio personality Dr. Laura; author John Grisham; actor John Candy; the Hilton and Doheny families; the owner of Trader

Joe’s; Liberace; singer Celine Dion; sportscaster Vince Scully; karate master and actor Jackie Chan; and Van Halen’s lead singer Sammy Hagar. The list goes on, and for most of these owners, their Arrowhead properties are second and third homes. And in case you are in the market, the choice is wide. There is always a bunch for sale, and with the property comes ownership of the lake. But there are people like Richardson whose primary (and only) homes are in Lake Arrowhead. “I grew up here, then left. I’ve been all over the world and I wouldn’t live anywhere else,” he declared, as he pointed out the trees, towers and bridges from which he used to jump – including a tree on a small island in the lake. “Every time I put up my rope swing, the (homeowners) association took it down. After the seventh time, they cut down the tree. See? There’s the stump.” The area’s second industry, of course, is tourism, because visitors know that Lake Arrowhead offers plenty for the perfect weekend getaway. A 90-minute drive puts you in the San Bernardino Mountains and National Forest, and on the aptly named Rim of the World
Highway, an amazing feat of engineering that yields breathtaking views. The welcoming and comfortable Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa makes an ideal base from which to explore the area. Enjoy the Mountain (ETM) offers many ways to do this – via four-wheeled ATVs, side-by-side ATVs or mountain bikes. We chose a two-hour Jeep tour with guide Tiffani Ice (yes, her real name). She took us up, down and around the nearby backcountry to vantage points and places where three eco-zones are visible. Ice also pointed out areas burned by the 2003 fire, which took six lives, 994 homes and 91,000 acres. Once back at the resort, it was time for a massage at the Spa of the Pines, conveniently located in the hotel building, a feature fully appreciated during the winter months. Coming after our Jeep tour, the massage and the quiet were well timed and appreciated. Other hotel amenities and activities are well suited to families and groups: a pool and hot tub, fishing (Richardson will take you out), and a private beach perfect for evening parties. Bin 189, the restaurant just off the lobby, is popular not only

Breakfast even included gluten-free toast.

Why you want barn owl buddies Tired of voles gnawing on your fruit trees, gophers snatching your vegetation from below, or rats scuttling up your downspouts? Invite a couple of barn owls over and they’ll gobble up the vermin at a rate of 2,000 a year. The universal party invite they all recognize is a nest box. “Barn owls are incredibly widespread
Using natural predators is more effective than conventional trapping or poisons.”

in America, so when you put up your nest box, you’ll start seeing barn owls take roost in them in short order, and then they’ll start going to work for you,” said Tom Stephan, master falconer, raptor expert, and owner of Barn Owl Boxes in Ramona. “Using natural predators is more effective than conventional trapping or poisons, it’s economical, eco-friendly, and protects local wildlife,” he added. Tom and his team of craftsmen hand make every owl box out of Mahogany plywood panels made from recycled materials. For as little as $350 installed, you can get the party started with a basic owl box. And buying a box is a one-time investment, as they cost nothing to maintain and the owls are very good at keeping their nest boxes clean.

streamed footage became an Internet phenomenon. Tom’s lifelong passion for birds of prey began in 1962 while doing research for a wild animal report in second grade. This led to much climbing of trees to better observe birds, which led to a career as a tree trimmer (and later a certified arborist.) While bidding a job, he noticed an improperly hung owl box in a potential client’s yard. He offered to install it at the proper height and angle needed to attract owls, and three days later the lady was thrilled to report that a pair of barn owls had begun nesting in it. “This was the first owl nest box I installed.” said Tom. “Now, nearly 25 years later I have over 36,000 under my belt. I’m so grateful that my passionate hobby has led me to such a fulfilling career. I spend my days sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge of nature and its inhabitants with people around the world. This is my definition of success.” Learn more at BarnOwlBoxes.com or call (760) 445-2023.
Making the most of small spaces Lisa Godsey, a registered interior designer for nearly 20 years and an instructor at The Illinois Institute of Art — Chicago, recommends that people start looking at interior spaces in a new way — up. Utilizing a room’s vertical space along the walls takes the heavy lifting off floor space as a catch-all for clutter. “Consolidating objects in some kind of containment, whether with shelves, cubes, wall-hung baskets or other organizational options cleans up visual clutter,” she says. This technique is especially beneficial in small living areas. In these situations, adding vertical modular storage units opens up space for tables and couches, while adding utility and keeping potentially harmful items away from small hands. Family-friendly furniture Marissa Alexander, academic director at The Art Institutes International Minnesota advises families to think toward the future when choosing furniture items. “Durability, easy maintenance and flexibility of the fabric are essential,” she says. Children will grow up quickly so choosing materials that meet the family’s needs now and in the future is highly advisable. Both Alexander and Godsey suggest nylon upholstery and durable, low-sheen furniture finishes, fiber seal textiles and individual lounge chairs sharing an ottoman instead of a loveseat. These combinations offer form, function, and style, as well as the opportunity to fit in alongside new furniture purchases. “Selecting furniture with clean lines, in subdued patterns in a medium value range — not too light or dark — can work in a variety of settings,” Godsey adds. To add pops of color, change the wall paint. Adam B. Nash, LEED certified designer and interior design instructor at The Art Institute of San
Consolidating objects in some kind of containment helps clean up the visual clutter says Lisa Godsey, a registered interior designer. Courtesy photo
Antonio, a branch of The Art Institute of Houston, suggests choosing Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) free products — because they are very eco- and child-friendly. These paints don’t emit any toxic fumes and are completely odorless making it possible to literally paint a bedroom and have the kids sleep in it that same evening. “It also allows for flexibility of changing things around without huge costs, especially when transitioning from a nursery to a preschooler to a preteen, etc.,” shares Nash. Keeping peace in shared spaces It’s hard enough to convince siblings to share a tablet; what happens when they have to share closet space? “Sharing a closet is best accomplished when it is clear who controls which space,” asserts Godsey. She recommends defining areas based on age — for example, placing an older child’s clothing on the top level of a double-hung closet. The area can be accessed via a stepstool — out of a younger sibling’s reach. Another option is to hang two bars extending into the depth of the closet, rather than one utilizing the width of the closet.
“Two bars on each side, in double-hung fashion, gives each child four feet of hanging space,” she says. And it may help to keep the peace when it’s time to choose an outfit. A time and place for individual style While parents show off their acquired style through furniture choices, artwork and decor, children’s style can be a bit more — changeable. Alexander suggests that parents provide children with flexible display systems that show off their creativity in a simple, neat and contained package. “Magnetic paint gives children direct control over what they display, allowing them to change displays whenever they want. A large frame with a plexi shield is a lightweight way to display a variety of flat work like children’s custom artwork.” Creating a functional living space - where parents and children coexist harmoniously — doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By choosing durable but stylish furniture, practical storage solutions, and allowing everyone the chance to express their style in defined places, your home can become a haven for all ages.
Green options for helping to consume less energy Private residences consume lots of energy. The Energy Information Administration says that Americans are increasing their electricity consumption at home, with some homes even using more energy than small businesses. The EIA says that on average a home uses between 936 and 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each month. There is also a heavy reliance on natural gas, one of the primary fuels used to heat homes. On average homes use 100 million BTU for heating and cooking needs per year. Thousands of dollars are spent every year on home heating, cooling and electricity needs, but there are many different ways to conserve energy.
This includes using alternative energy sources that may be better for the planet and more cost-effective for the average homeowner. When considering green energy, many homeowners think of solar panels, which currently account for .01 percent of all electricity used in homes across the United States. However, solar power could provide as much as 10 percent of that electricity by 2025. California leads the nation with the most solar projects to date, but homeowners across the country are considering solar panel additions to their homes. While the initial cost of solar panel installation can be considerable, the panels generally pay for themselves in energy sav-
ings within a few years of installation. Also, some solar power companies now allow homeowners to rent the photovoltaic panels, which can cut down on the cost of installation. Choosing green energy may not involve any effort on the part of the homeowner. In fact, there are many different companies that work in conjunction with traditional energy suppliers so that a portion of the energy supplied to homes comes via an alternative energy source. Homeowners interested in making any other changes for energy savings can sign up to have an energy audit. Conducted through a utility provider or a third-party organization,
energy audits assess many things in the home. Appliances are examined, as are insulation and the types of windows and doors used in the home and an inspector will check the home for drafts. A report is generated, and homeowners are provided recommendations as to how they can improve their home’s energy efficiency. Making such changes may make homeowners eligible for tax breaks or even rebate incentives while reducing the cost of their monthly utility bills. Homeowners hoping to embrace green energy have many options at their disposal. It’s just a matter of researching those options and taking the initiative to make changes.

the rebound no doubt benefitted homeowners looking to recoup as much of their home improvement investment at resale as possible, other factors likely contributed as well. Among the upscale projects surveyed, none recouped more of a homeowner’s investment than replacing existing siding with fiber-cement siding. Homeowners who financed such a project recouped 79.3 percent of the project’s cost, placing it just ahead of a garage door replacement, which recouped an average of 75.2 percent of its cost. After years of many home improvement projects recouping little of their initial costs at resale, the tide finally seems to be turning for homeowners.

Home improvement projects recouping more at resale In its annual Cost vs. Value Report that compares the cost for 35 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale, Remodeling magazine found that the overall average cost-value ratio has improved for the first time in six years. Cost-recouped percentages increased for all 35 projects examined for the 2013 survey, a remarkable turnaround from just a year earlier, when only three of the 35 projects saw an increase in cost-recouped percentage. Replacement projects proved especially beneficial for homeowners, who likely also benefitted from a real estate market that finally started to stabilize after an extended period of economic uncertainty that heavily influenced both buyers and sellers.

How to inspect your furnace before winter arrives It is almost time to bid adieu to the warm days of summer. Chilly afternoons followed by continually dropping temperatures are on the horizon, and fall is the perfect time to service the home furnace to ensure it is ready to withstand the demands of winter. Furnace maintenance should be done on a regular basis. The best time to do so is in late summer or early fall, when you still have enough time to address any problems before it gets too cold outside. HVAC systems malfunctions are typically caused by one of a handful of common problems. Inspecting certain components can help to guarantee a furnace is in working order when the first cold days arrive. Filter and air intakes After several months of running the air conditioning, the filter on the heating and cooling system may need to be changed. Check
the condition of the filter to see if it is heavily soiled. Furnace filters are relatively inexpensive. Since this thin barrier will be responsible for cleaning the air you breathe, it is important to keep a fresh filter in the unit. A clogged, dirty filter will reduce the efficiency of the HVAC system and may contribute to poor indoor air and allergies. Check the air intakes around the house for obstructions. Do not place furniture directly in front of intakes or venting that delivers air to the home, as this can compromise air flow and force the unit to work harder. Without adequate air flow through the system, the furnace may not turn on. Many systems also have some sort of external vent or exhaust pipe. Check that the area is free of leaves, debris and animal nests. Again, any blockages can impede the efficiency of the unit or cause it to fail.
Thermostat Very often a furnace may not turn over because the thermostat is faulty. Many a homeowner has spent money to have a service person come out to examine the furnace, only to learn they only need a new thermostat or battery in the thermostat. Check the thermostat against a separate thermometer to ensure that it is reading the right temperature in the house. Raise the setting a few degrees to test if the heat kicks on. Fuel Furnaces are powered by various energy sources. Electricity, gas or oil may be involved in the process. If fuel is not being delivered to the furnace, the pilot will not light and warm the air to be blown through the house. Some systems have an emergency shutoff switch that will halt fuel delivery to the unit. It’s easy for these switches to be flipped accidentally

Water wise workshop planned ENCINITAS — As part of its continued efforts to increase awareness of outdoor water use efficiency, Olivenhain Municipal Water District — in partnership with San Dieguito Water District, Santa Fe Irrigation District, San Diego County Water Authority, and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California — is hosting a workshop from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Encinitas Community Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive, Sept. 23. Attendance is free, although reservations are required. For more information or to register for this WaterSmart workshop, visit olivenhain.com/events or call (760) 632-4641. The workshop intends to assist residents in saving money on their water bills while maintaining a healthy landscape. Participants will learn how to design landscapes that are sustainable in San Diego’s climate, including how to make the best use of the region’s limited rainfall, irrigate effi-
ciently and select the best plants for each yard. The instructor will also discuss composting, worm castings, rain harvesting, mulching, soil health, water pressure’s effects on irrigation, and tips and incentives to reduce outdoor water use. “Our customers have done a very good job reducing overall water consumption over the last several years, and in light of current water supply challenges, we need to continue to strive for water-efficient landscapes at our homes and businesses,” stated Christy Guerin, Vice President on OMWD’s board of directors. “The workshops that we offer throughout the year provide customers with the tools and understanding to reduce irrigation runoff and water waste.”
if a furnace is located in a high-traffic area. Make sure the switch is in the “on” position before reporting a problem. In addition to these steps, you may want to vacuum the vent screens around
the house. This will reduce the amount of dust blown around. Also, if the furnace exhausts into a flue, be sure that the exhaust route is clear so that carbon monoxide does not back up into the home.
Many homeowners are fully capable of inspecting their furnaces to ensure they are ready for winter. If anything seems out of place or malfunctions, consult with an HVAC professional to make repairs.
