Encinitas halts evictions amid financial crisis By Lexy Brodt

ENCINITAS — Last week, the city of Encinitas established a temporary moratorium on evictions due to the financial repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic — joining a handful of other cities in San Diego choosing to echo the state’s mandate. Days after issuing a shelter in place order for all Californians in late March, Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a ban on evictions for the time being. The mandate specifically protects residential tenants from eviction due to the nonpayment of rent. The city’s ordinance ups the level of protection, applying the moratorium to commercial tenants as well. “(Small businesses) are critically important, they need our support,” said Encinitas Councilmember Joe Mosca, during the council’s April 1 virtual meeting. “The last thing we want to see when everything gets started again is that these small businesses have closed down.” The moratorium will apply through May 31, 2020, after which tenants will have six months to pay back the rent from the months they did not pay. Landlords cannot charge late fees for inability to pay rent during this approximately twomonth-long period, or for longer, if the local emergency continues. The ordinance applies to those who are having financial difficulties in the face of this crisis, which is defined in the ordinance as having a “substantial decrease in household income for a residential tenant, TURN TO EVICTIONS ON A7

COVID-19 death toll in San Diego County reaches 36 REGION — The San Diego County COVID-19 death toll has reached three dozen, with 1,530 confirmed cases. County public health officials reported 76 new cases Wednesday and five additional deaths, bring the total death count to 36. The county’s number of confirmed outbreaks of the illness remained static at 25 total. Of those, 17 took place in congregate living facilities and were responsible for 108 positive cases and 11 deaths. The other eight outbreaks could be tracked to 33 cases and one death. Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county public health officer, said while the statistics were striking, they may not represent any significant trends. “The increase in deaths should be no cause for alarm, as the number of deaths frequently lags behind the number of cases,” she said Tuesday. “Most of the deaths have been reported since yesterday, obviously, but have occurred in the

last several days.” Wooten said the county sees a similar lag every year during influenza season, as the process of completing a death certificate may take several days while new confirmed positive cases are more immediately reported. Even so, the leap in deaths brings the percentage of people dying from complications related to COVID-19 to 2.1%, still below both California's mortality rate of 2.3% and the nation’s 3.2% but a significant increase from Monday's local rate of 1.3% mortality. Wooten also urged county residents to avoid experimental treatments for COVID-19, stressing that there was no known cure for

the illness. Since COVID-19 first arrived in San Diego County, there have been 289 hospitalizations from the respiratory illness and 109 intensive care hospitalizations. For the first time Tuesday, the county reported the number of estimated recovered patients: 201. The county does not currently track the number of COVID-19 patients in the region's 23 hospitals, instead looking at total number of occupied beds. Wooten reported eight new outbreaks of the novel coronavirus for a total of 25 outbreaks, County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher expressed

gratitude to county residents who were taking shelter-in-place orders seriously. According to county data, local travel has dropped significantly, including a 50% drop in retail traffic, a 64% drop in public transit traffic and 51% less traffic at parks. Chula Vista laid off roughly 350 part-time and seasonal city employees near the end of March, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Tuesday. Most of those employees worked at the city's public libraries, parks and recreation centers. The layoffs, which happened March 27, came as a direct response to closures of the city's nonessential services because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the newspaper. More than 800 unsheltered individuals are transitioning to San Diego's Convention Center as a temporary homeless shelter. The San Diego City Council approved a $3.7 million state grant to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 among homeless San Diegans. More than 1.8 million pieces of personal protective equipment have been distributed from county supplies, including more than 748,000 N95 respirators. The county reported 523 unused ventilators at 22 of the region's 23 hospitals. Starting Tuesday, authorities began citing essential businesses that have not

complied with the requirement to post social-distancing and sanitization guidelines near the entrance of their businesses. All employees of grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants open for to- go orders, fast-food eateries, convenience stores and gas stations must also wear a facial covering at all times as part of a county health order that went into effect at midnight Saturday. Although the county is not mandating that residents wear face coverings, essential businesses can deny entry to customers whose faces are not covered, Fletcher said Monday.

Desmond, Gaspar propose tax relief REGION — Two members of the Board of Supervisors called Tuesday on the county tax collector to offer property tax relief to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, ahead of a Friday payment deadline. In a letter, Supervisors Jim Desmond and Kristin Gaspar asked Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister to review a proposal by the San Diego chapter of the California Restaurant Association, in which those unable to meet their second installment tax obligation of over $500 by April 10 would be able to enter into a payment plan with the county.

As part of that plan, a resident would be required to pay 20% or more of the tax no later than the deadline. To enroll in the plan, a taxpayer would have to meet other requirements, including paying a $26 setup fee. “As two supervisors representing North County residents and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we again implore you to proactively work to address this urgent matter,” Desmond and Gaspar wrote. In an emailed response, McAllister said while many taxpayers have asked if the county can postpone the April 10 deadline, the second installment of the current-year property tax bill remains due no later than Friday. “State law governs when property taxes are due and payable,” he added. “Unfortunately our office is not able to modify or create a payment plan outside of state law.” McAllister said people directly impacted by the pandemic and who are unable to pay the second installment of their secured tax bill on time can file a penalty cancellation request. All such requests will be reviewed on a case-bycase basis after April 10, and will require documentation of how the taxpayer was impacted, he said. — City News Service

Cedros business district landlord waives April rent By Tawny McCray

SOLANA BEACH — Business owners in Solana Beach can breathe a little easier this month after their landlord waived April rent. Daniel Powell, who owns 17 small businesses in the popular design district along South Cedros Avenue, informed his tenants in a letter March 20 that he’d be waiving the upcoming rent and all associated expenses. Powell said he made the decision in response to the constant stream of bad news and closures due to COVID-19. “ T h e thought came very clear to me to deliver POWELL some good news,” Powell said April 6. “It was like the Golden Rule, ‘How would I like to be treated?’ I felt very strongly it was the right thing to do. It felt like it was a message from God.” Powell, who’s owned the buildings for more than 20 years, said tenants reached out to him almost immediately with an outpouring of sincere gratitude. A tenant named Carla, thanked Powell via text message for embodying empathy, leadership, and compassion. The message read, in part, “Thank you so much for waiving our rents and for helping us out going through these uncertain and hard times. I feel honored to be your tenant and grateful for all your support.” Powell said while most people think of a landlord-tenant relationship as adversarial, he sees it as a partnership. “We both want each other to succeed,” he said. “We all know that most retail stores can be easily replaced by an Amazon type delivery program.” Business owner Carly Blalock of Carly Blalock Interiors calls Powell “a great guy” and the kind of landlord that swings by the shops on a regular basis and attends their events. “I appreciate Daniel always thinking about how his tenants can thrive in their businesses. We actually talk about that a lot,” she said. “His generosity is contributing to that in this moment.” Powell said Cedros is a special place, with art galleries, cafes, tasting rooms, one-of-a-kind merchants and services. He added that 75 percent of his tenants are women-owned businesses, each employing an additional two to eight people. Lorna York, who moved her Madison Galleries art gallery from La Jolla to Solana Beach just under two years ago, said she too is indebted to Powell. “I’m totally grateful to be in partnership with a human being,” York said. “I’m appreciative of his generosity in this time of my need. He wants to keep my business alive so that I can be there when

this is all over.” York, a breast cancer survivor, said she self-quarantined early because of her health past and has struggled with no income. “Even though I’m global and I’m an online business, the whole world is in crisis right now,” she said, saying no one is interested in buying luxury goods. “When I first got quarantined I said, ‘OK, how much savings do I have? How long can I pay my basics?’ I had a very thriving business and then the brakes stopped.” York said in her 30year career as an art dealer and gallery owner — surviving two financial crises and 9/11 — she’s never not worked. Lately, York said she’s been filled with anxiety and her concerns have expanded beyond the financial crisis. Three of her family members in New York City — her daughter, son-in-law, and infant granddaughter — have all tested positive for the coronavirus. “They got it three weeks ago and my 5-month-old granddaughter has been fighting for her life,” York said. “Her fever just broke this weekend. Mom and dad are good now, they’re on the other side, and (the baby is) getting there. She’s fought it hard this last week.” She says health struggles have a way of causing you to focus on what’s important. “If you don’t have health, you have nothing,” she said. “The new wealth is health.” She said she hopes everyone emerges from these times kinder and more interconnected. And that gestures like the one Powell showed continue. “It’s extraordinary times and it takes extraordinary people and he’s one of those extraordinary people,” York said. Powell said he didn’t waive the rent to get thanked, but it’s been great hearing how much it has helped people out. “I didn’t act to be acknowledged, but it was wonderful to hear from tenants that the kindness was indeed felt and appreciated,” Powell said. Blalock said she wants to pay it forward by offering design advice free of charge. “As we are all forced to stay in, and need to stay as healthy minded as possible, everyone who needs some help in making their spaces functional and enjoyable, please let our team at Carly Blalock Interiors know,” she said. Business owner Sarah Paschall who owns Sarah Paschall Design,

thanked Powell on her Facebook page and said she hopes his generosity sparks a chain reaction. “I’m deeply moved by your kindness and support to help us get through this financial crisis together,” Paschall wrote to Powell. “I hope the flood gates of generosity open up all around the world and begin to flow.”

State beaches closed to prevent virus spread By Lexy Brodt

REGION — A handful of state beaches in the North County area closed as of Friday, April 3 in response to the continuing spread of COVID-19, according to a release published by the state’s department of Parks and Recreation. The temporary closure will apply to Cardiff, Carlsbad (including South Carlsbad), San Elijo, South Carlsbad and Torrey Pines state beaches. The release also stated that Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Silver Strand state beach in Coronado will be closed “until further notice.” The release was published shortly after Oceanside announced that they will be closing their city beaches – meaning that essentially all beaches along the North County coast will be temporarily closed, whether city or state. Most cities in the region had already closed their beaches by March 23, after two subsequent weekends of visitors flooding the sunny coastline. However, state beaches continued to remain open through the end of March – a reality that some city officials say resulted in conflicting signals for residents and visi-

tors. On March 30, the city of Carlsbad sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom requesting the “immediate closure” of all state and county beaches in California. “Mixed messages are creating confusion and presenting significant challenges to our ability to maintain social distancing and protect the health and safety of our residents and visitors,” the letter states. Dwight Worden, a city councilmember in Del Mar, said having Torrey Pines beach open to the south of Del Mar was also causing certain parking issues for the city. Because the state beach’s parking lots were closed, but not the beach itself, visitors were parking “all over Del Mar” last weekend, he said. Worden called the closure of state beaches in the area “good news.” “We’re trying to get the beaches closed obviously because health and safety have to be the number one criteria,” he said. On April 1, the Encinitas City Council had a discussion about whether they should open up some of their beaches again, deciding at the end of the meet-

Dozens of social-distancing violators cited in San Diego area REGION — Dozens of San Diego-area residents and some local businesses received citations over the weekend for violating government social-distancing requirements designed to slow the spread of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, authorities reported this week. In Carlsbad, two people were given citations over the weekend after refusing to leave a public park, according to Greg Koran, a lieutenant with the coastal city’s police department. In the city of San Diego, police handed out 16 tickets on Saturday and Sunday. The San Diego County Sheriff's Department, for its part, issued 25 tickets over

the weekend to people violating the public-health orders by leaving their homes unnecessarily, congregating in large groups or failing to stay at least six feet away from others, according to Supervisor Greg Cox. “The warnings are over,” Cox told reporters Sunday. “We’re now down to serious business.” Conversely, the police department in Oceanside, where beaches closed to the public Friday night, began the coronavirus-related prohibition period by giving verbal warnings to offenders, all of whom were cooperative and dispersed when asked to do so, OPD Lt. Aaron Doyle said. — City News Service

ing to consider the option of opening Moonlight Beach in two weeks. But now, given the closure of state beaches, Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, said the city’s beaches will remain closed. “There was a feeling of wanting to get out in front of this and have consistency throughout the county,” Blakespear said, in a phone call with The Coast News. The city of Encinitas has about an even split of state and city beaches along its coastline. Blakespear said there has been some pushback from the community, with largely a “mixed” response overall “I understand why people feel frustrated, because the ocean is the heartbeat of our city,” she said. “…so there’s a real sense of loss.” Beaches became a prime meeting point for many in the last couple weeks of March, as malls, restaurants and other gathering places started closing to help stymy the spread of the virus. Solana Beach City Councilwoman Kelly Harless noticed that despite many complying with social distancing standards on city beaches pre-closure,

others looked the other way. “There were a lot of groups lying on beach towels, playing frisbee, passing things back and forth and walking in groups,” said Harless, adding that communities “do not have the luxury of noncompliance” with social distancing. Echoing other officials in the area, Harless said she thinks the closure of state beaches is a plus. “The closure of the state beaches and other trails is a positive thing, because we have to do it uniformly or it doesn’t do any good,” she said. According to Adeline Yee, Information Officer for California State Parks, State Park Peace Officers will be patrolling state parks areas to educate the public on social distancing, in cooperation with allied law enforcement agencies. The closure applies to all vehicle and pedestrian access to the beaches, in addition to the beach itself, trails, beach staircases and restrooms. All recreational activities on the closed beaches and parks is prohibited. Steve Puterski contributed to this report.

Dumped hospitals: It’s time to reevaluate Arnold, Brown


Lockdown letter from France By Diáne Mandle

“U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return home or be prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. Have a plan to depart from France that does not rely on U.S. government assistance.”


hat is the daily message we receive while on lockdown in a small village in southern France. We have no internet, or television, poor cell service, and every flight we have booked back to California has been canceled with no definitive departure dates from the airlines. Fortunately we do have a rented car that allows us to purchase groceries and make clandestine trips to the nearby woods to forage for the wood we use in the fireplace to keep our little house warm — which it isn’t most of the time. When the virus broke out at the beginning of March, just 3 days into our stay in France, we were on a mission to furnish the little village house I had recently purchased in order to rent it out during the summer. Summer rentals would pay for the expense of running the house and allow me to also spend three or four months a year here. I had it all figured out — this dream come true. The stone house with tile floors had a few pieces of furniture in it when we arrived. But mostly it was empty and cold. We needed everything — everything! I was looking forward to the fun of finding great deals from local flee markets and treasures in nearby villages. Instead lockdown happened. Lockdown in France is like this:

You must print and present a certificate stating your name, address and time of departure and destination. Police are around stopping vehicles to do a check. There are four reasons to be out of the house: Food, medical needs, exercise and essential services. If exercise, one is permitted only one hour and 1 kilometer from the house. No recreational biking is permitted except for children on bikes if they are outdoors with a walking adult. Anyone caught violating the permissions is fined. A lot. If you forget your certificate, you are fined. The postal service no longer operates in our village. The police don’t seem to answer the phone either, which is concerning in case they are needed for an emergency. There are so many new ways of doing things and no one to ask when help is needed: i.e., cell phone recharging, where and how to replace the butagaz on the cooker, where to find a doctor, etc. It may seem as if a simple Google search would provide needed answers, but try doing a search with no internet and poor cell service. It is an exercise in frustration. So, searching for wood, gathering rocks and wild plants for a rock garden, repairing what

few pieces of furniture we have with makeshift tools, walking through the vineyards and apricot orchards that surround the property, hand washing clothing and draping them over trees to dry, creating face masks from an old T-shirt found on a walk, taking time to make simple meals and feel so grateful for the healthy non-GMO food available. These are the things that fill our days. The quiet is palatable — no sound from cars or planes: only birdsong. Oh wait a minute. That sounds pretty awesome! It is. It is like a step back in time, forced refuge, living moment to moment, finding pleasure in the simplest of things. I remember that on this very land my mother and grandmother suffered — really suffered — during years of war, no food and definitely no way to communicate to the outside world. I can still sneak over to the next village where my girlfriend has a summer house with Wi-Fi that I can use a couple of times a week. It is cold there and the connection is slow as tar — but it is a blessing so many did not and still do not have in the world. It is from there that I will send this little message to you , my community, with great love. I do not know when I will be back stateside or when the planes will stop being canceled but I hope you are well, safe and appreciative of all the blessings that we do have amid all the challenges that exist. A bientot! Diáne Mandle is an Encinitas resident, author and Tibetan bowl sound healing practitioner.

ncient Egyptians first observed that only when we eliminate traditions do we discover why they first became traditions. That’s a warning state officials must heed this spring, as they shape a sharply reduced state budget where many programs will likely be slashed or eliminated. To rephrase the Egyptians: Eliminate a state program and you eventually learn why it was set up. This can be a very hard lesson. So it’s been this spring, as California coped with the many consequences of ex-Gov. Jerry Brown axing a $200 million program featuring sophisticated mobile stand-by hospitals complete with sleeping quarters for staff and a stockpile of ventilators during the budget-cutting festival he presided over after assuming office for the second time in 2011. The process of eliminating the program — which received virtually no notice while it existed a decade and more ago — came to light via a joint investigation by the Los Angeles Times and the Center for Investigative Reporting. This emergency ready-response program included three 200-bed tent hospitals that could be brought to disaster scenes anywhere in California on flatbed trucks and set up to provide care within 72 hours of receiving notice. Each covering an entire football field, they included X-ray machines and intensive care units. The program and its elimination as an economizing measure puts the governorships of Brown and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a new light. Schwarzenegger, sullied by a long-ago affair with his housekeeper that was revealed right about

california focus thomas d. elias the time he left office and Brown took over, is often remembered as a lightweight. But during the national avian flu outbreak of 2006, Schwarzenegger spurred his then cash-strapped state to spend hundreds of millions of dollars for the portable hospitals. “In light of the pandemic flu risk,” the once and future movie muscleman said then, “it is absolutely a critical investment. I am not willing to gamble with the people’s safety.” How right he was. But Brown took precisely that gamble. Now it’s clear we all lost. In a classic penny-wise-and-pound-foolish move, he abandoned the program, seeing its most valuable equipment distributed to hospitals around the state, while its tens of millions of N95 facemasks and more than 2,000 life-preserving ventilators seem to have virtually dissolved. Brown refused comment to the reporters who revealed this travesty. No wonder. For he was a governor who reveled in a reputation for foresight, sagacity and parsimony. He traveled the world as the foremost American spokesman for fighting climate change once Donald Trump became president. He accepted full credit for solving the state’s budget crisis and producing repeated multi-billion-dollar surpluses after sponsoring a successful 2012 budget-balancing ballot proposition. His refusal to discuss gutting the emergency hospital program is consistent with his repeated refusal

to reveal private conversations and emails with utility executives while he and his appointees steadily favored them over customers in crises like the shutdown of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. He never acknowledged his obvious conflict of interest in dealing with utility issues while his sister earned hundreds of thousands of dollars as a board member of Sempra Energy, parent company of both the San Diego Gas & Electric Co. and the Southern California Gas Co. Brown somehow evaded most criticism for this. But the worldwide coronavirus crisis now affecting every Californian has put the consequences of his action on the mobile hospitals — far from his biggest budget-cutting move — into bas relief. With those hospitals up and running, perhaps Gov. Gavin Newsom would not have had to beg Trump to send the USNS Mercy hospital ship to Los Angeles. If the gear in the hospital program had been kept up, perhaps hospital nurses wouldn’t have had to use the same masks for entire days, rather than dumping and replacing them after visiting each of their patients. So Brown lacked the foresight Schwarzenegger showed in setting up the program. Which means the ancient Egyptian warning is correct again: Years after this program was eliminated, we now know exactly why we needed it. That may make it high time to reevaluate the gubernatorial tenures of both Brown and Schwarzenegger. Which ought to caution Newsom as the virus forces him to start slashing the state budget this spring. Email Thomas Elias at

Puppy siblings find home in Encinitas City accepting applications for Masson’s District 2 seat

By Tawny McCray

REGION — A brother and sister puppy pair, whose adoption story went viral around the world, are settling in nicely at their new home in Encinitas. Star, who’s deaf and nearly blind, and Denver, who acts as her guide, were two of eight puppies whose mother had been dumped in rural Louisiana. A couple who found the mother kept her with her babies and, once weaned, asked the Heart of Louisiana facility to help find good homes for her pups. But since there aren’t enough homes for abandoned animals in Louisiana, the litter, along with 31 other rescue puppies were sent to the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe in February for adoption. The duo, who were adopted out as a bonded pair, were adopted by Sheri and Art Armendariz last month. Sheri Armendariz said she saw the puppies on the news and fell in love immediately. The couple lost their beloved dog Cosmo last year and were just getting ready to start looking for a new family member. “We were thinking maybe a three-year-old, female dog, not a puppy, so they could travel with us,” Armendariz said. “And all of a sudden here we are home with puppies. But we love them, we’re absolutely thrilled. They’ve melted

our hearts.” The 4-month-old puppies, who were born on Veterans Day, are believed to be either full or part Catahoula leopard, the state dog of Louisiana. They are all white — what’s known as leucistic, or without color — with pink noses, ears, and bellies and light blue eyes. Armendariz said they are almost identical except for their eyes and noses, Denver has black spots on his. Armendariz said when they first met the pups at the Helen Woodward Ani-

mal Center, Star went right up to her and sat on her lap. “One of the reasons I think that we were picked to adopt them was that they picked us,” Sheri said. “We were extremely honored to be chosen.” An anonymous donor surprised them by covering the adoption fees, and Blue Buffalo Pet Food gifted them a year’s supply of dog food. Star is special needs, so the couple are learning how best to help her navigate things. The animal center appointed a train-

Clean Energy Alliance plan certified By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A regional Community Choice Aggregation program has cleared a critical hurdle paving the way to begin providing alternative energy services to residents of Del Mar, Solana Beach and Carlsbad as early as next spring. The Clean Energy Alliance’s implementation plan, which establishes the organization’s key functions, including rates and power sourcing, was recently certified by the California Public Utilities Commission, according to an April 1 announcement. The three North County cities entered into a joint powers agreement last year to split the start-up costs evenly. The program is a pathway to a 100% renewable energy supply by 2035, although the program will begin with 50% renewable and clean energy sources. CEA Chairwoman and Carlsbad Councilwoman Cori Schumacher said the board will also discuss at its April 16 meeting and the following two potential programs, energy phase-in along with budgeting and staffing expectations. With the three cities, 58,000 residents will be automatically enrolled into the new program. Those who do not want to participate can opt-out and stay with San Diego Gas & Electric.

“For us, we’re going to be transitioning the 58,000 potential customers in one phase, whereas the other JPA is, I think, three phases,” Schumacher said. “Over the next three meetings, we’re going to be talking programs, the types of options above and beyond the 50% renewable energy baseline and setting the tone for the next five years.” The CEA board, which consists of Schumacher, Del Mar Mayor Ellie Haviland and Solana Beach Councilwoman Kristi Becker, have also approved a number of positions for the CEA, including naming Barbara Boswell of Bayshore Consulting Group as chief executive officer until June; River City Bank for banking services; Pacific Energy Advisors for technical consulting; and Calpine Energy Solutions for data management and call center services. The budget for Fiscal Year 2019-20 is projected at $450,000 and jumps to nearly $4 million for 2020-21. And while cities are taking a big financial hit due to the pandemic, Haviland said the startup funds have already been secured. Rates from CEA, though, are expected to come in about 2% lower than SDG&E, according to the plan. Schumacher, though, said the long-term benefits of the CCAs are important to tackle climate change

and the impending global recession. With finite financial resources, or inaction, by federal or state leaders, she said local municipalities will be on the front lines of pulling the country out of the recession. Haviland and Schumacher both said it is important to push forward, as the CEA will be an economic engine for the three cities. “This is a really tough time for all the cities,” Haviland said. “The Clean Energy Alliance is even more important now. This is an opportunity to provide funding down the road for these clean energy projects.” To date, nearly every city in San Diego County has joined a CCA program or conducted (or is conducting) a feasibility study. Oceanside and Encinitas joined Carlsbad and Del Mar in their study; although Oceanside has not joined a CCA and Encinitas joined the San Diego Community Power JPA with the cities of San Diego, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach and La Mesa. San Diego County has also decided to move forward, along with Santee, although those municipalities have not joined a JPA. Escondido, San Marcos and Vista are currently finalizing their study. Note: The CEA is at 2 p.m. April 16 and plans to stream the meeting in progress.

er for them, but due to social distancing, the Armendariz’ have been left to their own devices. “We’re letting Star decide herself how she wants to interact with the world. We’re not pushing her to do things,” Armendariz said, adding that they put “deaf” and “blind” Velcro swatches on her leash, so that people won’t come up to her and startle her. Armendariz said the pups have a unique bond. They know where each other is all the time and sleep curled up together.

ESCONDIDO — The City of Escondido is accepting applications for the City Council District 2 seat, formerly held by John Masson, who passed away in March after a lengthy battle with cancer. Escondido Chamber President & CEO James Rowten said that while Masson will be dearly missed, he is confident in the process moving forward. “We do have faith in whoever they decide to appoint,” Rowten said. “We know that the Mayor and the City Council will do whatever they think is going to be in the best interest of the City.” Candidates must be 18 years of age, reside within the limits of the district, and be registered to vote in the city at the time the application is accepted. Those who are eligible must submit an application by April 15. The Escondido City Council will then interview candidates at a special city council meeting scheduled for April 22. The City Council will either appoint a candidate at that time or in the days following the meeting. “In terms of what the council is looking for, they like to pick a colleague that they can work with,”

City Manager Jeffrey Epp said. “I know it will be important to them to have someone that just wants what’s best for Escondido.” Epp said that’s exactly the kind of outlook Masson had every day. “(Masson) was incredibly passionate about Escondido, very energetic and always very positive. Some of his goals were to build a new library in Escondido, to expand Grape Day park and he was fervent about building more skate spots around town,” Epp said. “He was a big advocate for growth and development in the city, in all aspects.” The term of the Council seat is from the date of appointment to the next general election on Nov. 3.

Freelancers on edge about unemployment relief By Steve Puterski

REGION — Unemployment benefits and how the state is authorizing those funds has many independent contractors on edge. Many are worried filing for unemployment will trigger an audit from the Employment Development Department to their clients as a result of the controversial law Assembly Bill 5. The law prohibits companies from hiring contractors unless the business can prove the individual meets the ABC and Borello tests. The law expanded the Dynamex decision by the California Supreme Court in 2018, which ruled on wage orders for only two contracted drivers for the company. There are currently more than 30 bills in the legislature to amend or repeal AB 5. JoBeth McDaniel, Eric Addison and Dan Chan, all contractors in various industries across the state, had varying interpretations of the process, but all railed against the state, especially the bill’s author, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) for a lack of action regarding contractors and their unemployment claims. Numerous other contractors or businesses contacted for this story declined to comment out of fear of retaliation from the state. Congress, meanwhile, included independent contractors and freelancers in its Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program through the CARES Act, but therein lies a problem, the three said. The EDD has not rolled out the federal program and the only way for contractors or freelancers to access unemployment funds is by claiming they were misclassified employees. However, freelancers who have paid into the Unemployment Insurance Program can access those

monies. The federal government, though, is using tax returns from 2019 or 2018 for its stimulus payments to individuals. California Labor Secretary Julie Su has repeatedly said on social media and virtual calls only “true independent contractors” will not trigger audits. Those claims, plus the state’s actions, have left many contractors fearful of filing claims. McDaniel, a freelance journalist in Los Angeles who is also a caregiver for her mother-in-law, said she has filed for unemployment benefits saying she was self-employed. An outspoken critic of the law, Gonzalez and Democrats who

support it, McDaniel said her clients are no business of the state and stated herself as self-employed on the forms. “If they start asking for the names of my clients, I tell them to go pound sand,” she added. “This is federal relief. They (the state) don’t need any of that information.” Also once an adjunct professor and union member, she railed against the state for its lack of healthcare and other professions for state employees such as adjunct professors and per diem nurses. Additionally, contractors put on part-time status will not receive unemployment.

“They’ll be paying in but not able to draw out,” McDaniel said of part time employees. “That’s a Ponzi scheme because it was all set up for 1950s “Leave It to Beaver,” there goes Ward to his full-time W2 job. Get your own house in order first.” To date, 1.9 million claims due have been received by the EDD, according to the East Bay Times. It’s 300,000 less claims than from the fallout of the 2008 Great Recession, the paper reported. The number of unemployment claims has paralyzed the EDD as the Legislative Analyst’s Office reported the EDD usually issues about 80% of first

benefit payments within 21 days of receiving a worker’s application, but it’s anticipated that the first benefits will now “take much longer,” according to the Sacramento Bee. In addition, congressional Democrats are also attempting to attached the PRO Act (Protecting the Right to Organize) into the next stimulus. McDaniel, along with many others, noted it would eliminate independent contractors entirely with no exemptions like AB 5.

‘Crisis Crooner’ sings in his closet for laughs and a cause By Tawny McCray

REGION — Local musician Chris Maddox is getting quite the attention these days posting videos from his closet, calling himself The Crisis Crooner. Maddox is turning some of the biggest hits into parody songs to bring much needed humor to people in this time of uncertainty and fear. Take his rewrite of ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond, which he turned into ‘Hand Sanitize’. “Before this began, I was called a hugger, and I was told my embrace was strong. But now in the spring, and probably through the summer, we gotta be smart all day long. Hands, washing hands, reaching out, don’t touch me, I won’t touch you. Hand Sanitize, for 20 seconds would be so good. We will get by, tough times don’t last but tough people should.” Maddox, who typically

performs throughout San Diego and Los Angeles as an Elvis Impersonator in his 12-piece band Graceband, pens the parody songs with his wife, Heather. He records the videos in his bedroom closet, at the Carlsbad home the couple live in with their 12-year-old son Ryder.

“These are my protest songs,” Maddox told The Coast News. “It’s protest against doom and gloom, and panic and fear. I do try to not just take the low hanging fruit, stupid fart jokes. I like try to aim a little higher. I’m not like Lennon and McCartney here,

but I’m trying to be fun and clever.” Maddox said he was inspired to start writing the songs at the beginning of the pandemic last month after he visited a Vons supermarket and saw that it was slim pickings. “All the bread’s gone, and all the bagels, even the lousy bagels with the onion bits, those were gone,” he recalled. “And it was like, ‘Whoa, this is real!’ The news was so overwhelming and at the same time, though, I’m like, we’re going to get through this. So it’s like, ‘What can I do?’ I’ve got to do something here, be a little ray of light at least for my friends and family.” Soon after Maddox, who’d never written a song before, penned his first parody song, with wife Heather’s help. They wrote ‘Hand Spray,’ a spoof of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”: “And now the end is near,

I touch my face, my fate is certain. My friends they are nowhere near, I live in fear of COVID’s 19th version. I want to live a life that’s full. I got to prepare but not in a shy way, I got a plan, it’s Costco man, to get all of the hand spray.” During the past three weeks, the Maddoxes have written six parody songs that can all be found on his YouTube channel, Chris “Crisis Crooner” Maddox, his Graceband Facebook page, or his band’s Instagram page gracebandlives. Maddox calls Heather “my Garfunkel” and said he has enjoyed their newfound collaboration. “I never found a creative way to include her before, so that has been a little bit of a silver lining to this whole thing. It’s really fun,” he said. “I’ll do the heavy lifting and come up with the basic stuff and TURN TO CRISIS CROONER ON A13

OCEANSIDE — The city is taking steps to implement a $3 million relief fund to help local, small businesses financially during the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting recession before the end of this month. During a special meeting on April 1, City Council unanimously approved directing staff to put together a $3 million business relief fund ready for implementation and final approval in 21 days. The fund, proposed by Councilmember Chris Rodriguez with help from fellow Councilmember Ryan Keim, will be used to issue micro-loans ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 to help local, small businesses retain employees and stay afloat. Many businesses have been forced to halt operation due to federal, state and local public health orders that target reducing the spread of COVID-19. The program will be open to businesses that can show they are experiencing economic hardship due to the pandemic and have been in operation for at least six months. At the meeting, Rodriguez said COVID-19 has “unleashed an economic war” on the city and its small businesses. Rodriguez wanted the program to be implemented by April 15, but City Manager Deanna Lorson explained staff needs more time to put together such a program. Rodriguez suggested using recalled bonds, Measure X funds, grants, FEMA or other federal aid assistance and donations from the private sector as funding sources for the program. “With $3 million we can help between 150300 businesses,” Rodriguez said. The loan terms would be 24 months — Rodriguez called them “BandAid loans” — with 0 percent interest the first 90 days that would increase to between 3 percent and 5 percent between the remaining loan time. Rodriguez also suggested priority be given to the businesses who have been in operation longest, veteran-owned businesses and businesses with more employees. Many businesses impacted by COVID-19 have already applied for the Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster assistance loans, but Rodriguez said the processing of these loans won’t provide the “fast relief” Oceanside’s small businesses need. “Businesses need cash and they need it now,” he said.

La Costa Canyon teacher transforms journalism program By Hoa Quach

CARLSBAD — In 2017, Michelle Challis was tasked with revamping a lackluster journalism program at La Costa Canyon High School in Carlsbad. The assignment wasn’t easy, especially without a budget, said Challis, a former journalist. However, after three years, she’s proud of how far the program has come. Challis, who was named Teacher of the Year at the school, and her students make up the team behind a regularly published magazine, MavLife Magazine, and a YouTube news show called “MAVNATION.” The students have even taken their journalism skills to social media, mirroring the reporting seen by professional journalists. “I am extremely grateful for a handful who jumped on board with me in the beginning and continued to work to make the program more and more successful,” said Challis, who has worked at Carlsbad Unified School District for 19 years. “It was definitely not easy that first year. The absolutely excellent group of students who were with me were instrumental in making positive changes and bringing pride into the program. Without the students, none of the program would exist.”

A tenant who isn’t able to pay rent would have to provide notice to the landlord either on or before the day rent is due, according to the ordinance. Within two weeks of that date, they would have to provide documentation illustrating their inability to pay rent. The virtual meeting saw several residents writing in, mostly to express their support. Resident Bob Kent said the ordinance will help keep residents in their homes during the outbreak. “The current corona virus outbreak shines a bright light on the importance of keeping people in their homes for both their economic security and for our community’s public health as a whole by containing this virus,” he wrote. Mike McSweeney, a representative with the Building Industry Association of San Diego, requested the council consider adding to the ordinance that if tenants decide to move out, all rent should be due at the time of move out.

Due to the ordinance being passed on the first day of the month, the council decided to extend the date of providing notice to landlords until April 7 for this month only. The county and the city of San Diego have passed similar ordinances thus far, as well as Oceanside in the North County area. Encinitas has also taken steps to ensure its homeless population is sheltered during this time. On March 18, the city partnered with the Community Resource Center to implement a temporary emergency shelter motel voucher program. The center has provided 65 motel vouchers, allowing for the shelter of 83 individuals, according to the city’s staff report. The city is allocating $90,000 every two weeks to this program, and seeking reimbursement for those funds at both the state and federal level. At the April 1 meeting, the city opted to extend their partnership with the local organization for an additional 30 days.

Recovering coronavirus patient gives back to Palomar Medical Center By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO — More and more hospitals are facing shortages of medical supplies as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in San Diego County, and across the country, continues to rise. Paul Martinez, 56, was one of those confirmed cases and recently treated at Palomar Medical Center as the hospital’s first diagnosed COVID-19 patient. Martinez, who was born in Oceanside and grew up in San Marcos, manages a branch of Hub Construction Specialties. Nearly a month ago, Martinez started to feel cold-like symptoms, which quickly turned into a cough so severe, he fainted at home. “One minute I’m standing and coughing, and the next thing I know, my wife is above me, and I’m lying on the ground,” Martinez said. “At that point we realized it was time to go to the emergency room.” Martinez went to Palomar Medical Center where he discovered he had pneumonia. The hospital tested him for the virus, and he spent a few days in ICU. A couple days later, he found out that the tests came back positive. With help from his wife, Martinez quarantined himself until his symptoms subsided, being careful to stay away from his other family members, including

his elderly mother. “It’s not something I would wish on anybody,” Martinez said. “I was really sick, sicker than I’ve ever been.” After his recovery, his company donated 1,000 N95 masks to Palomar Med-

ical Center as a symbol of their gratitude. “I’m just thankful to the hospital staff for being so kind and courteous during a scary and difficult time, when they themselves were also at risk,” Martinez said.

The gift was greatly appreciated by Palomar. “We are using 20 times more N95 masks than we would use during the normal influenza season, and the cost has gone from an average of about 50 cents apiece to $3 to $6 a piece,” said Wayne Herron, vice president of philanthropy & chief philanthropy officer at Palomar Health Foundation. “So, the value of a gift like that is felt pretty powerfully.” Palomar is just one of hundreds of hospitals across the country that are racing to keep up with the surging demand. Fortunately, they’ve got a little help from the community. Home Depot, Harbor Freight and Viasat are just a few of the companies who have donated supplies to the hospital. Others, including Stone Brewing, Domino’s Pizza and Chickfil-A, have donated food for Palomar’s employees. “We even got an anonymous gift from angel donor in the community of $200,000, and we have no idea who sent it,” Herron said. “It’s all very heartening for me to witness.” Herron said the gift of 1,000 masks by Paul Martinez and Hub Construction supply will indeed be powerfully felt. Today, Martinez is fully recovered and is back at work. His family hasn’t shown any signs of the vi-


“Before this, I felt like I was untouchable because I never really get sick,” Martinez said. “Being the first one diagnosed at Palo-

mar, it opened my eyes. I just want people to know that this can happen to anybody. Keep following the guidelines and stay at home.”

Chinese American group Carlsbad bans parking along miles of coastline donates masks to hospitals By Steve Puterski

By Lexy Brodt

REGION — A community of Chinese Americans in San Diego is making its mission to protect health care workers from the threat of COVID-19, distributing thousands of articles of personal protective equipment (PPE) across the county. Based in San Diego, American Chinese Culture and Education Foundation (ACCEF) has so far donated about 5,000 N95 masks and 8,000 FDA Class II surgical masks to San Diego hospitals — with many more on the way. In partnership with other local organizations, the nonprofit distributed this equipment to Sharp, Palomar Health, Scripps Health, Kaiser, UCSD, Alliance Health Clinic, Father Joe’s Village and more. Now the group is setting its sights on helping lower income communities, as well as other cities across the country struggling to keep up with the spread of the virus. Jing Cai, an ACCEF board member and San Diego resident, said the organization typically focuses on helping underprivileged students in China get access to educational opportunities. But when COVID-19 began to spread in China in January, the board decided to redirect its efforts. Through four rounds of fundraising, the nonprofit raised enough to deliver portable ventilators and personal protective equipment to more than 20 hospitals in China’s Hubei province. Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, was where the first case of COVID-19 was identified in late 2019. “At that time, the situation was extremely bad in Wuhan, so a lot of Chinese Americans took the initiative to do what we could to help healthcare workers and patients,” Cai said. Once the situation became increasingly grave in the United States, ACCEF decided to switch course once again. “More than one month ago we started to see how we could help the health workers in the United States,” she said. “This is our community, this is where we live … what we are doing is protecting our own community.” Cai said the nonprofit’s efforts have been made possible due to a wide network of generous donors throughout the country. The organization has used WeChat — a popular app within the Chinese American community — to circulate information and generate support for its work. Harnessing this network, ACCEF raised approximately $50,000 to purchase the much-needed equipment from a variety of vendors. In addition to its local efforts, the organization is hoping to distribute masks to hospitals in Massachusetts, the Bay Area, and

New York — one of the epicenters of COVID-19 cases. “We know New York is a really hard-hit area,” Cai said. “It’s sad to see the doctors and nurses in New York — they are experiencing what the healthcare workers experienced in Wuhan.” As it increases its distribution, ACCEF continues to collaborate with organizations — such as the San Diego United Leo Club and Chengdu No. 7 High School Alumni Association — to see how they can help both healthcare workers and underserved populations confronted by this crisis. “We are doing this for the whole community,” Cai said. “We encourage people to take responsibility for the community, and do what the government suggests and what the (Center for Disease Control) suggests … we should be united to fight this.” For more information on ACCEF and to donate, visit; or reach out to

CARLSBAD — In an effort to prevent gatherings of people on the beach, the City of Carlsbad instituted a "no parking ban" on April 3 along nearly six miles of state-owned coastline. The no-parking rule went into effect Friday morning at 5 a.m. City crews have placed signs and barricades in the affected areas. Vehicles are not allowed to park on the east and west sides of Carlsbad Boulevard from Pine to La Costa avenues, Ponto Drive and Ponto Road, according to Kristina Ray, the city’s communications director. The City of Carlsbad closed its northernmost beach on March 23, which runs from the Oceanside border south for approximately one mile. The city has also formally requested the state follow suit by closing beaches under its jurisdiction. To date, the state has closed beach parking lots, but not the beaches. Most other beaches in the county are closed, resulting in a huge influx of people across North County flocking to the beaches in

Carlsbad, according to city officials. “We are in the middle of a serious public health emergency, and the City of Carlsbad is going to do everything we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said Carlsbad City Manager Scott Chadwick. Carlsbad declared a

local emergency on March 16. Among other things, this action gives Chadwick — acting as the director of emergency services — the authority to take immediate steps to protect public health and safety. The Carlsbad City Council will be asked to approve the parking ban by

adopting an urgency ordinance at its next meeting, April 7. The Carlsbad Police Department will enforce the new rule with citations that carry fines starting at $50. Coast News wire services contributed reporting.

OCEANSIDE — Once a troubled youth involved in gang activity, 18-yearold Hunter Meyer has now earned the title of San Diego County’s Youth of the Year and will go on to compete for the state title. Meyer will compete against other Boys & Girls Club members for the California Youth of the Year title, held virtually on April 15. Meyer is expected to dress up and give a speech — something that he used to struggle with doing when he was younger — and answer interview questions for a chance at the title and a $5,000 college scholarship from Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Meyer, born and raised in Oceanside, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, autism and Tourette syndrome when he was only 4. Throughout grade school, he struggled with speaking and listening to instruction. “When someone tells me something I can hear something completely opposite,” Meyer said. “The teacher could say ‘sit down’ and I could hear ‘run around.’” Meyer was also told he wouldn’t be able to go to public school or play sports, something that was hard to hear for a kid who has played football since he was 5. When he reached middle school, Meyer began hanging out with a group


of boys who he considered friends. He began doing drugs, staying out late, stealing and fighting during that time. By eighth grade, Meyer was hanging out with gang members. That year he was asked to leave Lincoln Middle School due to possession of marijuana and having a knife and lighter on him on campus. Meyer switched to Pacific View Charter School where he had a hard time with the small student population. Eventually he was asked to leave there too because of a runaway situation, after which he was diagnosed with depression. After that, Meyer tried to commit suicide but was lucky to have his mother and brother discover him right before it was too late. He was then committed to a psychiatric facility where he was treated. “I couldn’t hold a happy smile for more than a minute,” Meyer said.

After he got out, he put on a “persona” to make his family seem like he had changed. He went into freshman year at El Camino High School so he could play football, but again began hanging out with gang members. “I thought it was intimidating and I liked it,” he said. “I like the feeling of feeling strong and overpowering another person.” He began fighting and getting into more trouble and was eventually asked to leave the school with six weeks left of his football season. He doesn’t remember why because he believes he was “strung out” on drugs at the time, but he remembers being told that he was considered a threat to other students. He went back to Pacific View where he met other gang members and started getting into trouble there as well. Back then, he was never home, never did his homework and got deeper into drugs. “I almost couldn’t find myself,” he said. Finally when it was time for his gang initiation, he was tasked with either killing someone or being killed because he knew too much at that point. He had about a week, and on his initiation day the guys he was supposed to do it with were arrested for a drive-by shooting. It was TURN TO YOUTH OF YEAR ON A13

Colleges offer beds to coronavirus patients Carlsbad council suspends

commercial tenant evictions

By Tigist Layne

SAN MARCOS – California State University San Marcos is one of several public universities across the state that could soon be opening their on-campus housing facilities to temporarily house hospital patients. In a recent press conference, Gov. Gavin Newsom indicated that he would be preparing the California State University and the University of California campuses to be supportive of regional needs amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Our campus could be a place for housing patients, whether they are ones that have COVID-19 or just other patients that need the facilities,” said Margaret Chantung, CSUSM associate vice president for communications. After suspending in-person learning and sending home students who lived on campus last month, CSUSM now has approximately 1,100 beds available between its two housing facilities. “They could be used as testing locations, they could be used to house medical personnel,” Chantung said. “There’s a variety of things that the campus could be used for, and at this point, we have let the state know what our resources are.” Mike Uhlenkamp, a spokesperson for the CSU Office of the Chancellor, told The Coast News that

some local agencies have reached out to a couple Cal State campuses and executed memorandums of understanding (MOU). These agreements are in place so that if the need does arise, the state can move swiftly in utilizing their facilities to house patients. “Those campuses are Cal State Fresno and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo,” Uhlenkamp said. “We have had inquiries from about half a dozen local agencies, whether that be the City of Long Beach or even San Diego County, but Fresno and SLO are a little bit further along and are potentially

ready should they be called upon.” San Diego County has approximately 7,000 to 8,000 hospital beds, and some hospitals are already reaching their capacity. County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher spoke about a potential agreement with UC San Diego to house patients in a recent news conference, explaining that something like this could bring much-needed relief to local hospitals. “This would be for individuals presently in the hospital who are too sick to go home but don’t need to stay in the hospital,”

Fletcher said. “If we can create new rooms, we can transfer those folks there, which is freeing up an existing room.” CSUSM officials said they have made the capabilities of their facilities known at the request of both the county and state. And now, they wait. “We have reported how many beds we have available and what sort of security and campus resources we have,” Chantung said. “We are just waiting to be called upon, and when we get that call, we will be ready and willing to support whatever that effort looks like.”


a native South African and longtime Oceanside resident, learned the bank made a second withdrawal for the previously paid amount of $12,996 — charging him twice for a total of nearly $26,000. And the error couldn’t have come at a worse time for Foster and his mother, Heather, who closed both stores and laid off all of their employees last month. “It’s just terrible timing,” Brandon Foster told The Coast News. “We have no money coming in and we had to lay everybody off. No cash to pay our rent, no cash to pay employees. We drained our savings account and it’s not a little bit of money.” For the past four weeks, various bank associates have continued to “kick the can down the road,” apologizing for the trouble and telling Foster the money would be returned to his account within the next 48 hours. “Everyone keeps passing the buck off to someone else,” Foster said. “They have given us the biggest runaround in the whole world. It seems like they just don’t care.” During his most recent conversation, the situation worsened. According to Foster, the bank told him they had lost his money to a third-party vendor and they don’t know where it is. “We have begged, pleaded, phoned all the way to headquarters for over

three weeks now,” Foster said. “It’s a disgrace. I feel sick thinking of how they just stole this money and won’t give it back. We feel helpless.” Bank of America did not respond to requests for comment. Regardless, since the social lockdown, small business owners, including Foster and his mother, have been scrambling for financial assistance, counting every penny. The day after Gov. Newsom’s order, Foster had already completed applications for the U.S. Small Business Association’s (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loan and Paycheck Protection programs.

Additionally, Foster applied for federal aid within the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law on March 27 by President Donald Trump. The $2 trillion package offers business owners government-backed loans with low-interest rates and incentives to keep their employees on the payroll and money flowing into the national economy. Some of the bill’s inducements include employee retention credits for businesses that were ordered to close due to COVID-19, and the Paycheck Protection Program, which provides federally-guaranteed and

partially forgivable loans up to $10 million for eligible businesses. But until those refunds arrive, employers like Foster are just trying to find ways to survive. Brandon Kelly, an outreach specialist at Money. com, suggested that some small business owners in desperate need of cash might consider borrowing from local commercial lenders. “The government is offering great terms, at least at face value, but you are going to have wait for it,” Kelly said. “If people can’t wait, there are other options. There are lenders in your community who need

CARLSBAD — In the first of several moves, the City Council approved a temporary suspension of commercial evictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. During its April 7 meeting, the council agreed to halt those processes as local businesses have been slammed with decreasing revenues, staffing and business, along with others who have temporarily closed their doors. The suspension is effective immediately and suspends evictions for non-payment of rent, according to Cindie McMahon, assistant city attorney. Once the state of emergency is lifted, so too, will the temporary eviction order, after an amendment to the staff report by the council. “The resolution does not allow a commercial tenant to delay paying any rent the tenant is able to pay,” she added. “It also does not relieve a commercial tenant of liability for any unpaid rent or applicable late fees. It does not prevent a landlord and tenant from agreeing to alternative payment arrangements.” To qualify, a tenant must be current on their rent prior to the state of emergency, notify the landlord in writing declaring the inability to pay and

the business and you can leverage the current low rates with a commercial loan.” Gumaro Escarcega, program manager at MainStreet Oceanside, said the organization is working to help small businesses market their services through online webinars. Specifically, Main Street Oceanside is working with Danielle Milne, CEO of Digital Hopper, to offer digital workshops every Wednesday at 11 a.m. to help small businesses market themselves online. MainStreet Oceanside also created a Facebook group that serves as a platform for small business owners to ask questions. “The biggest impact I’ve seen on local businesses right now is a lack of revenue coming in,” Escarcega said. “Sole proprietors are having a really tough time and owners are hurting both as a business and personally. There is no money to pay their rent and utilities at home. So, it’s very difficult for small businesses not equipped to deal with a pandemic like this.” Escarcega said the local hospitality industry, which has been hit the hardest by the pandemic, has come up with creative ways to generate business. Local restaurants, including Blade 1936 and Flying Pig, are creating do-it-yourself meal kits for families to cook together at home. Pacific Coast Spirits, a local distillery, is manufacturing and selling hand sanitizer for the public, and

provide documentation of the inability to pay due to the coronavirus outbreak, McMahon said. All those requirements must be related to the COVID-19 pandemic and is not a forgiveness of unpaid rent. Also, a landlord may seek unpaid rent and late fees after the temporary suspension, while a tenant must pay unpaid rent and late fees within three months after the suspension ends; unless an alternative solution has been negotiated. In addition, the council also approved an ad hoc committee for economic revitalization for businesses. The committee consists of Mayor Matt Hall and Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel. According to Tina Ray, the city’s communications director, staff is already working on options for the committee and how much will be made available. Several other cities in San Diego County have already established economic relief programs. San Marcos has made $3 million available in short-term loans from up to $10,000 to $50,000 with several repayment options. The Carlsbad City Council also approved $3 million from its economic uncertainty reserve funds in the General Fund to cover related expenses due to the pandemic. The Rising Co, a community co-op, is making face masks. Foster and his mother said they have shifted their focus to online marketplaces (Amazon, Shopify and eBay) to generate much-needed revenue. “We started putting everything online, even though a majority of our vendors don’t allow online sales,” Foster said. “But we came to a realization these are dire straits.” Currently, the best-selling items online from Sandy Toes and Little Louie’s gift shops are soaps, candles, socks and other comfort items. Between both businesses, Foster is making roughly 30 sales per day, which allows them to barely break even due to smaller profit margins selling online. Sometimes, Foster even sells items at a loss just to compete with other businesses and establish an online presence. “I’d rather some cash in my bank account,” Foster said. “We feature handmade stuff from local artists and very unique stuff you’re not going to find anywhere else. It’s upsetting to see these items sold for cheap. But you have to do business.” Customers will be directed to shop online at their websites and, or directly at their online store here. Shortly before press time, The Coast News learned Mr. Foster was reimbursed by Bank of America.

San Dieguito grad, NFL legend was a kick to be around sports talk jay paris


oon after delivering the longest field goal in NFL history, the Saints’ Tom Dempsey, of course, was celebrating his achievement in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Dempsey, a former multi-sport star at San Dieguito High and Palomar College, was the toast of the town in a city where that’s quite an accomplishment. His giddy teammates joined him to cheer his game-winning, 63-yard kick in 1970, with drinks flowing and the music blaring. Quickly, both came to an abrupt halt when a waiter approached the table with a telephone: President Richard Nixon was on hold to talk with Dempsey. “Yes, Mr. President,” Dempsey said. “Thank you, Mr. President.” Actually, thank you Dave Parks, a fellow Saint who had pulled a fast one on Dempsey in a prank which was told in “Tales from the Saints Sidelines.” “The President doesn’t want to speak to you, you (expletive),” Parks replied. Dempsey, a top-notch practical joker, removed the hook, line and sinker. “I should have known the president didn't have a Texas accent,” Dempsey said with a red face. Dempsey, 73, passed away Saturday after contracting coronavirus at a

New Orleans retirement home. His death was felt locally, as Dempsey grew up in Encinitas, back when it was known for flowers and farming. “He always kept in touch with his old friends,” Bill Sullivan said. Sullivan played whatever sport was in season with Dempsey, dating to the late 1950s. No matter what ball they were chasing, Dempsey never fell behind despite being born with half of a right foot and a right hand that featured but a thumb and a pinkie. We mention Dempsey’s disability here instead of at the beginning. That's just

how Dempsey would have preferred, according to Sullivan and others knowing the man everyone confirmed was the life of any party. “He never used that for an excuse,” said Sullivan, now living in Fort Collins, Colo. “He would just get in there and play and do whatever we were doing well. Even with half a foot, he was able to outrun some players on our Palomar team. He always gave 110 percent.” Other pals mentioned how Dempsey’s folks wouldn’t let their athletic but compromised son use the pity card. Dempsey, who also shot put and wrestled at Palomar, was eager for any-

thing. “I think his parents deserved the primary credit for that,” said a longtime family associate, who declined to be named. “They never let him use his disability as an excuse for not doing something. That included baseball, where he would field a ball and flip his glove off after he caught it to throw it.” Sullivan recalls Dempsey tossing aside overmatched junior college players. Dempsey played both sides of the line at Palomar (he was All-Conference at defensive tackle) as he often deployed his wrestling maneuvers to gain leverage on

opponents. “He was a football player,” Sullivan stressed. “He wasn’t just a kicker.” That his deformed right foot led to his spot in NFL lore with his epic boot is what added to his story, especially considering how it came about. “We had a pretty good kicker (at Palomar) but he had trouble on kickoffs,” Dempsey told the North County Times in 2012. “One day we were standing around and a coach said, ‘Which one of you (guys) can kick?’ I took off my shoe and kicked one out of the end zone. He asked me to do it again, and I did.”

He said out.93 of Hollywood, the crew side .93 members are all freelance. 4.17Addison said all work4.28now must set up as a ers business rather than independently after a meeting with Gonzalez. She has repeatedly stated AB 1850 will add clarifying language and the process was a “fix-it-as-yougo” process. “I think it’s a horrible way to govern,” Addison said. “I think the bill was poorly thought out, badly written and tries to paint with too broad of a brush. “Even the employment attorneys we’ve met have said you can follow all these things, but an EDD officer can easily say ‘I don’t see it this way’ and now you owe the fine. If you look at who backs Lorena, that answers all your questions about who this law is supposed to help. She gets all of her money from unions.” He said the potential blowback in the industry is not hiring someone who caused an EDD audit. Addison is said it’s worrisome, but celebrated the federal government’s acknowledgment of freelancers.

Dempsey had an 11year NFL career with the Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Houston Oilers and Buffalo Bills. He was an All-NFL selection in 1969 and he was all-everything to children, disabled and otherwise, as a source of inspiration. “He always loved talking to the kids,” Sullivan said. John Carney, the former Chargers and Saints kicker, remembered Dempsey’s charisma at an Encinitas Little League opening day in 2007. ELL, which was called the Northern San Dieguito Little League when “Tommy” Dempsey played in it as a 12-year-old, started the Tom Dempsey Award. Each year a player who has overcome significant obstacles is honored. “I got to meet him which was nice because he is such a legend in New Orleans,” said Carney, a North County resident whose longest field goal went 54 yards. “His record stood for 43 years.” Despite having but one developed foot, Dempsey, who is survived by his wife, Carlene, three children, a sister and three grandchildren, stood tall no matter his locale. “He was a special guy and everybody’s friend,” Sullivan said. “He was just a guy everyone wanted to know and hang out with.” Too bad President Nixon didn’t really call. He would have found a warm soul on the line’s other end. Contact Jay Paris at Follow him @jparis_sports. Also, he said the state should follow the federal governments lead. “If this thing is so serious that we need to stay in our homes and not doing anything and shut everything down to kill it (the coronavirus), AB 5 should be repealed,” Addison said. “There should be no worry about audits or repercussions from filing for support and relief. There should be just no worry if it’s as serious as they’re telling us it is. The fact there is that concern is shows the level of distrust in our government and how bad that bill is.” Chan, a magician in the Bay Area, said his $160,000 annual salary has disappeared. Once ensconced in Silicon Valley in the tech sector, his transition was due to his love of magic and performing. But now, he’s struggling to land work and stressed how AB 5 does not address the nuances of specific industries and how they operate. Additionally, he is struggling on how to navigate the EDD and collecting his unemployment through the PUA, as it has yet to be rolled out.

How to dramatically strengthen your immune system with liquid nutrition Born and raised in Amsterdam, Holland, Charles Van Kessler had his family snatched away from him at the very early age of 2 by the Nazis. He was forced to live in a state-run orphanage. After eight years of abuse, he couldn’t take it anymore. So at the age of 9 he ran away and lived on the streets of Amsterdam for four years. Then one day he met an American family who, God bless them, arranged for Charles to get a green card and come to America. But the anguish of a malnourished mind and body took its toll on young Charles. He was in bad shape, even suicidal. He started taking handfuls of vitamin pills because he wanted to feel better. Unfortunately that

didn’t help him. After studying everything he could find on nutrition for 12 years, meeting worldwide with doctors, biochemists and bioengineers, he discovered that a liquid vitamin would increase absorption dramatically, resulting in much greater results. Then it still took him another eight years to fully develop his product that the world had never seen before, Passion 4 Life. Charles’ wife, Linda, came up with the name because of the way Charles lives his life.

Dr. Keith ScottMumby, world renowned professor of nutrition who has studied nutrition all his life, swears by Charles’ product. “There is nothing else on the market that even comes close to Passion 4 Life,” says Dr. Scott-Mumby. “It would take 40 of the No. 1 selling vitamin pills in America to get the amount of B vitamins in 1 ounce of Passion 4 Life.” “But you can’t really

compare,” says Charles. “Because with many pills and tablets there is only 10%-20% absorption. Whereas, when you drink Passion 4 Life you get up to 98% absorption within three minutes.” There have been many clinical tests and there is a live video analysis on the website to prove it. “It’s for everyone who wants to have a healthy and happier life,” says Charles. It is safe for kids, adults and seniors. You do not have to take Passion 4 Life with food because each ounce is based in Aloe Vera for good absorption. Passion 4 Life is made of 135 vitamins and minerals designed to dramatically strengthen your immune system as well as increase energy, focus and

stamina naturally. It is gluten free, with no GMOs, soy, caffeine, dairy, wheat, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners of any kind. It is

great for the entire family. Many unpaid celebrities use and endorse Charles’ product, including Regis Philbin, who has been taking it for nine

years. Kevin Harrington, the original shark from Shark Tank, has credited it for improving his health. It has been Charles’ mission to turn his tragic beginning in life to a story of reinvention and hope for all. So he started, a non-profit charity that helps homeless, neglected, abused, underprivileged children as well as children in emergency situations in the United States. When you buy a bottle of Passion 4 Life, 10% of your purchase goes to fund this charity. So when you do something for your own health, you are also helping a child in need.

pating in the program. Meyer went on to become one of seven first-year graduates of the partnership. On his first day, his mind about police began to change when officers walked in wearing civilian clothing rather than their police uniforms. “They didn’t treat us like criminals,” Meyer said. “They treated us like their own.” He also interacted with rival gang members also in the program who he knew as kids and was able to relate to them. Meyer ended up devoting an entire summer and then some of volunteering at the club. When he turned 16, the club offered him a job to which he accepted. Meyer said he wanted to be reason why kids enjoyed coming to the club. “It was different seeing kid from neighborhoods that I didn’t like, watching kids from age 7 using gang signs I’ve seen 40-year-olds use,” Meyer said. “I made me want to stick with the


like a smack in the back of the head to him, he said. After that, Meyer tried to “keep his nose clean” but once again began stealing, smoking and fighting during his sophomore year. “I didn’t need to fight but I felt the need to fight,” he said. Meyer’s resource officer from El Camino approached him about being one of the first participants in a new program through the Oceanside Police Department and the Boys & Girls Club of Oceanside. The program, called the Oceanside Youth Partnership, was designed to keep at-risk youth from further contact with law enforcement. Meyer was reluctant to participate in the 12-week program at first. On one hand, he was afraid of getting into trouble with the police, but on the other hand he was worried about interacting with rival gang members also partici-

He hopes to graduate this year. After graduation, Meyer wants to go to college for a degree in law enforcement and child psychology. Meyer said the Oceanside Youth Partnership and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside have changed his life. “They veered me in the right direction and opened the door for me,” he said. Jodi Diamond, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside, said Meyer is an “extraordinary kid” who demonstrated great work ethic and has flourished at the club. “He is incredibly deserving of this honor and really is an example of someone who has turned his life around,” Diamond said. “We couldn’t be more proud of his accomplishments.”


she’s quality control manager, she helps me go through it and refine things.” The ‘Sweet Caroline’ parody came about after Diamond posted a video of himself singing it, where he changed the lyrics “hands, touching hands” to “hands, washing hands.” “I have to admit, initially I was offended that Neil was going to come into my lane,” Maddox teased. “He only did two lines from his song so I’m like I can jump on this easy and fill this in.” That parody helped catch the attention of the national TV magazine “Inside Edition,” which featured Maddox on a recent episode. His latest collaboration is a duet with San Diego-based singer Douglas Benson, who fronts a Johnny Cash tribute band called Cash’d Out. The duo remade Cash’s hit “Ring of Fire,” turning it into “I’m

For Hire.” Maddox said while he’s lost about five gigs so far because of COVID-19, he’s still got his day job with a Telematics company and is working from home. Bands like Cash’d Out are national touring artists and performing is their livelihood. “That’s why I wanted to particularly get that song out there and remind people that we’re for hire,” he said. Maddox said he’s constantly playing with more ideas – a spin on ‘Come Together’ by The Beatles: “Home Together, right now, quarantine;” or turning ‘Sabotage’ by the Beastie Boys into ‘I’m in the Garage” – and seeing what sticks. “I’m always just thinking random thoughts like ‘Ooh, that could be fun, or ‘No, that’s too much of a stretch’,” he said. As for why he sings in the closet, Maddox said “My funny answer is it’s not a closet, it’s a music studio where I choose to hang my clothes. But the

true answer is because it’s the place where I least offend the neighbors and my family.” Maddox said he’s not looking to capitalize on his parody songs. He’s using any attention they may get to direct people to donate to two places: the San Diego Food Bank,, which helps the elderly and at-risk, and Belly Up Live, bellyuplive. com, which supports local musicians. Graceband has performed at the venue 20 times. Maddox said he’s been having the time of his life doing the parody songs and he plans to keep doing them. “When this (pandemic) is all over, I want to know I was on the right side of it and I did what I could,” he said. “I’m not a doctor but I can spend a few hours and make a silly song, I have that ability. And if people laugh and enjoy it I’m going to keep doing it. The entire reason for this is to laugh and then go back to your life.”

Azar II declared a Public Health Emergency for the United States to aid in the nation’s health care community in responding to the COVID-19 virus; and WHEREAS, on February 19, 2020, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors ratified a declaration of local health emergency related to COVID-19; and WHEREAS, on March 4, 2020, the Governor of the State of California declared a state of emergency to make additional resources available, formalize emergency actions already underway across multiple state agencies and departments, and help the state prepare for broader spread of COVID-19; and WHEREAS, on March 13, 2020, the President of the United States of America declared a national emergency and announced that the federal government would make emergency funding available to assist state and local governments in preventing the spread of and addressing the effects of COVID-19; and WHEREAS, on March 16, 2020, the Governor of the State of California issued Executive Order N-28-20, which suspended “[a]ny provision of state law that would preempt or otherwise restrict a local government’s exercise of its police power to impose substantive limitations on residential or commercial evictions” of certain tenants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; and WHEREAS, on March 18, 2020, the City of Encinitas (“City”) City Council ratified the Emergency Services Director’s proclamation of the existence of a local emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; and WHEREAS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the California Department of Health, and the San Diego County Health Officer have all issued recommendations including but not limited to social distancing, staying home if sick, canceling or postponing large group events, working from home, and other precautions to protect public health and prevent transmission of this communicable virus; and WHEREAS, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and supply chains are impacting many local companies due to overseas factories operating at reduced capacity and a drastic reduction in tourism; and WHEREAS, as a result of the public health emergency and the precautions recommended by health authorities, many residential and commercial tenants in the City have experienced or expect soon to experience sudden and unexpected income loss; and WHEREAS, the eviction of comT.S.

mercial tenants results in the loss of local, family owned businesses, the loss of jobs for employees, and negative impacts surrounding to businesses, potentially leading to urban decay; and WHEREAS, the Governor of the State of California has stated that individuals exposed to COVID-19 may be temporarily unable to report to work due to illness caused by COVID-19 or quarantines related to COVID-19 and individuals directly affected by COVID-19 may experience potential loss of income, health care and medical coverage, and ability to pay for housing and basic needs, thereby placing increased demands on already strained regional and local health and safety resources, including shelters and food banks; and WHEREAS, further economic impacts are anticipated, leaving residential and commercial tenants vulnerable to eviction; and WHEREAS, during this local emergency, and in the interest of protecting the public health and preventing transmission of COVID-19, it is essential to avoid unnecessary housing displacement, to protect the City’s affordable housing stock, and to prevent housed individuals from falling into homelessness; and WHEREAS, displacement of residential tenants caused by eviction would create undue hardship on these tenants by making it difficult to follow public health orders and guidance of social distancing and isolation, and would further put them at risk of homelessness due to the City’s documented shortage of affordable housing, putting these tenants and the general public at great risk; and WHEREAS, this Ordinance enacts a temporary moratorium on residential evictions intended to promote economic stability and fairness within the City’s rental market during the COVID-19 pandemic, to prevent avoidable homelessness, to preserve the public peace, health, safety, and public welfare, and to enable tenants in the City whose income and ability to work is affected by COVID-19; and WHEREAS, business closures and reduced business hours, in addition to public health orders to limit public gatherings and socially distance, will have a financial impact on local businesses, and displacement of commercial tenants caused by eviction would worsen the present crisis by causing financial instability for business owners and employees and by reducing the available jobs for City residents once the crisis is abated; and WHEREAS, this Ordinance enacts a temporary moratorium on commercial evictions intended to promote economic stability and fairness, and to promote a stable business and job market WHEREAS, in the interest of public peace, health and safety, as affected by the emergency caused by the spread of COVID-19, it is necessary for the City Council to exercise its authority to issue these regulations related to the protection of the public peace, health or safety. BE IT ORDAINED, by the Council of the City of Encinitas, as follows: Section 1. Findings: The City Council finds that each fact set forth in the preceding recitals is true and correct and incorporated by reference. Section 2. Eviction Moratorium: That a temporary moratorium on evictions for nonpayment of rent by residential and commercial tenants in the City of Encinitas who are directly impacted by the novel coronavirus disease, known as COVID-19, is imposed as follows: (a) No landlord shall take action to evict a tenant for not timely paying rent that was due on or after March 27, 2020, if the tenant provided written notice to the landlord, on or before the date that each rent payment was due, that the tenant is unable to pay rent due to finan-


cial impacts related to COVID-19, except that for rent payments that were due from March 27, 2020, up to and including April 1, 2020, the tenant shall notify the landlord not later than April 7, 2020. (b) As used in this Ordinance, “financial impacts” means a substantial decrease in household income for a residential tenant, or in business income for a commercial tenant, due to business closure, loss of compensable hours of work or wages, layoffs, or substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses. A financial impact is “related to COVID-19” if it is caused by the COVID-19 pandemic or any governmental response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including complying with any public health orders or recommended guidance related to COVID-19 from local, state, or federal governmental authorities, sick with COVID-19, caring for a household or family member who was sick with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, or caring for a child whose school was closed in response to COVID-19. (d) Within two (2) weeks of providing each notice under subsection (a), the tenant shall provide the landlord documentation or objectively verifiable information that the tenant is unable to pay rent due to financial impacts related to COVID-19. (e) If a tenant complies with the requirements of this Ordinance, a landlord shall not take any of the following actions based on the tenant’s nonpayment of rent: charge or collect any late fees for rent that is delayed for the reasons set forth in this Ordinance, serve a notice, file, or prosecute any action to obtain possession of the property rented by that tenant or otherwise endeavor to evict that tenant for nonpayment of rent, including resorting to notice pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure sections 1161, 1161.1, or 1162, filing or prosecuting any unlawful detainer action based on a three-day pay or quit notice, or pursuing a no-fault eviction. (f) Tenants who were afforded eviction protection under this Ordinance shall have up to six months from the end of the period during which this Ordinance is effective or the withdrawal of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-28-20, whichever occurs soonest, to pay their landlords all unpaid rent. The Council may extend this Ordinance by subsequent resolution if conditions at that time warrant an extension. During that time period, the protections against eviction in this Ordinance shall apply. At the end of this six month period, a landlord may evict a tenant who has not paid all outstanding rent and resort to all remedies available to the landlord under the lease and the law. (g) Nothing in this Ordinance relieves the tenant of liability for unpaid rent after expiration of the provisions of this Ordinance. Notwithstanding subsection (f), nothing in this Ordinance prohibits a landlord from collecting all rents that are due at the time a tenant moves out. (h) A tenant with financial impacts related to COVID-19 may use the protections afforded in this Ordinance as an affirmative defense in an unlawful detainer action. Section 3. Duration. That this moratorium shall last until the local emergency is terminated or the withdrawal of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-28-20, whichever occurs sooner, but the Council may extend the time periods in this Ordinance by adoption of a subsequent resolution. Section 4. Implementation. That the City Manager may adopt rules and regulations reasonably necessary to implement this Ordinance, including adopting definitions of substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses and substantial loss of income. In the event the State of California issues law or guidance on implementing an eviction moratori-


um or defining these terms, that law or guidance shall control over the City Manager’s adopted rules and regulations. Section 5. Conflict of Laws. That this Ordinance is intended to supplement, not to duplicate or contradict, applicable state and federal law and shall be construed in light of that intent. Section 6. Interpretation. That the provisions of Title 1 of the Encinitas Municipal Code, including those relating to construction and interpretation, and enforcement of administrative remedies, shall apply to this Ordinance. Section 7. Enforcement. That the City reserves the right to enforce the administrative remedies in Title 1, Chapter 1.08 and to pursue any other remedies legally available against individuals knowingly or intentionally violating the provisions of this Ordinance or falsifying information to qualify for the relief granted in this Ordinance. Section 8. Urgency. The City Council finds that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the risk of housing displacement, loss of income, and homelessness for many people in the City of Encinitas and surrounding areas, as more fully described in the recitals of this Ordinance. The City Council further finds that, unless this Ordinance is effective and its regulations are immediately put in place, the public health, safety and welfare will be at risk. Therefore, the immediate preservation of the public health, safety and welfare requires that this Ordinance be enacted as an urgency ordinance pursuant to Government Code section 36937(b) and that it take effect immediately upon adoption its adoption by the affirmative vote of at least four (4) members of the City Council. Section 8. Uncodified. That this Ordinance shall not be codified. Section 9. Severability. That, if any provision of this Ordinance is held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be considered a separate, distinct and independent provision and such holding shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of this Ordinance. Section 10. Reading. That a full reading of this Ordinance is dispensed with prior to passage, a written copy having been made available to the Council and the public prior to the day of its passage. Section 11. Certification. That the City Clerk shall certify to the adoption of this Ordinance, and the City Clerk shall cause this Ordinance or a summary thereof to be published as required by law. PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED at a special meeting of the City Council held on the 1st day of April 2020. \Catherine S. Blakespear Catherine S.

er at Grossmont Center, he added. The bank will then reassess and if needed, add more mass distributions. “This is something we don’t normally do, but we’ve seen such a spike in our lines at our distribution sites, so we thought we’d do some mass distributions to shorten those lines,” he said. “It’s heart-warming and gratifying to see how the local community is rallying around the food bank. Vehicles passed through one of four lines manned by dozens of volunteers to streamline the process. The non-profit passed out 30 pounds of food per vehicle, along with baby wipes, packs of toilet paper and paper towels. Floros said the organization has adjusted its tactics quickly in response to the growing demand for food and supplies. Their experience, though, has made for a quick transition for organizing their own drives, along with distributing food to 500 partner organizations throughout San Diego County. In addition, the SDFB has spent $1 million to purchase food. For every $1, Floros said, the food bank can leverage it into five meals The non-profit has been a staple in the county since 1977. In addition, its branch in North County moved into a larger building late last year. “This is what we do for a living,” Floros said. “We’re independent so

we’ve always had this entrepreneurial mentality, so if we see a problem we can adapt and overcome. Not a whole lot of bureaucracy.” Volunteer Jennie Walters, sporting a face mask, said she was compelled to help as the pandemic has taken so much from so many. While many have lost their jobs, Walters, an engineer, said she has been fortunate to remain employedtaking the morning off to volunteer. She said many of the volunteers started at 7 a.m. to bundle the canned food and were done in one hour. It allowed the volunteers to start filing up cars earlier than scheduled. “I’m just trying to give out to the community,” she said. “I heard about this and though I might as well volunteer. It’s been very smooth and the food bank does a great job of organizing the logistics for events like this.” To donate, visit www. For those who need assistance, visit

SECTION NBA legend donates goggles to Scripps Health

small talk jean gillette

By City News Service

REGION — NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar visited Scripps Health in San Diego on April 6 to donate 900 pairs of safety goggles to protect health care professionals on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Abdul-Jabbar regularly wore goggles on his way to becoming the NBA’s all-time leading scorer — so it's fitting that he’s donating eyewear in what may be one of his biggest assists yet off the court. The 72-year-old ex-athlete, who played 20 seasons for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers, said he “wants to thank all of the doctors, nurses and medical professionals for all they’re doing to help fight the coronavirus,” according to a Scripps statement. Abdul-Jabbar was motivated to give back after learning about the need for more medical equipment from his longtime lawyer Steven Anapoell, whose brother, Dr. William Anapoell, practices at Scripps. Abdul-Jabbar’s longtime friend and manager of 25 years, Deborah Morales, is leveraging his name, image and likeness globally to help locate and secure other much-needed, high-quality medical supplies for Scripps and other hospitals in Southern California, according to Scripps. The nonprofit health care delivery system operates five hospitals and 28 outpatient centers in San Diego County.

Diary of not getting anywhere


with the students. “It’s definitely been difficult,” said Jennifer Johnston, who asked Rudy to read to several children in her neighborhood on Olympia. “It’s something that sounds like fun. Lindsay’s great and has a heart of gold.” Books have long been her passion, and children’s books are her favorites. For years she was a sub, but was hired by the district this year. The inability to interact with her students at school has been tough, Rudy said, but this model is another way to keep the kids engaged and remind-

ince celebrities everywhere are offering up diaries of life during the quarantine, I figured I’d offer a few observations of my own. Day 1 — Managed to get out for a power walk. Had to keep crossing the street to avoid everyone else out for a power walk. Day 2 — Desperately want to clean the refrigerator but it is so jammed full of food, you can’t see the dirt now anyway. Maybe if I eat this chocolate cake… Day 3 — If they weren’t quarantined, the Fashion Police would be storming my bedroom, as I shuffle around in baggy, velour PJ pants with stars on them, a pink-striped T-shirt and a purple sweatshirt, with red socks and, well, just socks. Day 4 — Trying to eat healthy, so I chased that bag of chocolate mini-bars with a V8. Day 5 — Am getting up at 4 a.m. so I can work in an empty office. I am firmly reminded I am a night person. Day 6 — Made spaghetti sauce, planning on days of leftovers. Husband ate it all in two sittings. Day 7 — Did I mention my husband puts ketchup

Librarian brings storytime to kids By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Books have been a constant source of entertainment, joy and learning for one Carlsbad librarian. But with much of society at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic stayat-home orders, Calavera Hills Elementary School Librarian Lindsay Rudy had another idea. Since students are cooped up, she started an in-person story time in different neighborhoods. Staying at least 10 feet away, Rudy began her live book readings on March 26 and has had dozens of requests since. She pops in for 15 to 20 minutes and reads one or

two children’s books to provide a bit of entertainment for the youngsters, and parents. “The first week out of school, I sat,” Rudy said. “I was missing the kids, worried about the kids. My own kids were having a lot of screen time, so I tried to figure out how to get more book time.” Even though the Carlsbad Unified School District students returned to school through online sessions March 31, Rudy said she’ll continue her story time. She’s even working on a virtual model through her Instagram page. Rudy, an admitted extrovert, said she’s going out to small gatherings be-

cause she believes in the value face-to-face contact, even if it is 10 feet away. The idea hit her when she saw a family conduct a social distancing picnic and thought she could do it with reading. Just before the district closed all campuses, Rudy checked out dozens of books so she’d have ready for her daily readings. One of the more popular books is “The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors” by Drew Daywalt. It tells the story of the famous hand game and how each item can win or lose. After each reading, Rudy, from a distance, plays a game with each child. It’s just another way to interact

Burning Man photo book shows a desert transformed hit the road e’louise ondash


he 15 years of aerial photos of Black Rock City in photographer Will Roger’s new book give us scenes similar to interplanetary colonies in a sci-fi film. These settlements, however, are fully of the Earth. “Compass of the Ephemeral: Aerial Photography of Black Rock City through the Lens of Will Roger” takes readers high above the annual Burning Man festival (, staged every August in Nevada’s stark Black Rock Desert, and gives us an eagle-eye view of, inarguably, one of the most unique gatherings on the planet. What began as an inauspicious gathering on a San Francisco beach in 1986 has evolved into a week-long celebration of freedom, creativity and unconditional love. In 2019, 75,000 people from all points of the globe attended. (The Burning Man board hopes to decide in June whether the 2020 celebration will happen.) “Burning Man is unique in that all the people are the participants,” said Roger in a phone interview from his ranch in tiny Gerlach, Nevada. The photographer is one of six “cultural founders” of Burning Man and in charge of Black Rock City’s Department of Public Works, responsible for constructing and de-constructing the temporary metropolis. “(The festival) is not a spectator event. It stimulates creative energy and unconditional love. It’s humanity in its very best glory.” Roger discovered Burn-

ing Man in 1994 and immediately became heavily involved. Then, in 2005, “I had the opportunity to go up in an airplane … and take photos. I realized we were making land art. From the air, (Black Rock City) looked magnificent. I thought, I need to do this every year. My intention was to create the best image I could, sign them and give them out as gifts.” The book’s collection of aerial photos, from 2005 to 2018, text entries (especially one on the history of Burning Man written by William L. Fox, a director at the Nevada Museum of Art), and additional ground-level photos give readers who have and have not attended Burning Man a glimpse of the enormous scope of operations and the creativity of organizers and participants. Imagine, if you can, thousands dressed in bi-

24/7; and at week’s end, a spectacular conflagration of a multi-stories-high wooden man (hence the name of the festival), “giving affirmation to anti-consumerism and self-expression.” “People say, ‘Burning Man changed my life,’” Roger said. “You get to see how humans can live on the planet in harmony with Mother Nature. The artwork is awe-inspiring. You become present, transformed. It creates awe — a common experience, a community.” Chapters of “Compass” are organized by year, and each begins with that year’s artfully designed ticket and “Burning Man Survival Guide,” and a map of the Black Rock City plan. This graphic design, in the shape of a segmented arc, comes with a fascinating story that makes clear why the once free-form, chaotic happening now requires a coordinated orchestration with defined boundaries that keeps participants safe and oriented. The other mandate is that, after the festival has ended, the entire city must disappear. “Leave no trace” is a highly promoted mantra. (Those who leave a mess may not return.) It takes a herculean effort by paid workers and volunteers to return the Black Rock Desert to the purview of Mother Nature. “The takeaway from my book is that Black Rock City and Burning Man has magic — that it’s a miracle” Roger said. “It’s temporary … and it’s ephemeral.

North County nonprofits transition fundraisers to online platforms By Hoa Quach

REGION — Nonprofits throughout the region are taking previously planned fundraising events to online as a result of the new coronavirus pandemic that has prompted global lockdowns. Hands of Peace, a nonprofit with a mission of empowering young people, and the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum both announced recently that their fundraisers would transition to online platforms. Hands of Peace previously planned to hold its annual benefit at the Hilton San Diego in Del Mar in mid-April but is now hosting that fundraiser online. The benefit typically raises $65,000 for the nonprofit. “I had hoped to greet everyone personally at the San Diego Benefit, but as we all know now, the world had other plans,” said Hands of

Peace Founder Gretchen Grad, who created the first Hands of Peace program in 2003. “Whether they are American, Israeli, or Palestinian, the younger generation is crying out to have their voices heard. And we won’t stop supporting them, even if planes aren’t flying and we can’t gather in the same room.” The nonprofit, which works to empower and unite young Israelis, Palestinians, and Americans, launched the “Magic Happens Online” fundraiser on April 5 and plans to run it until April 19. “The pandemic forced the cancellation of Hands of Peace's two biggest fundraising events of the year, one in Chicago and one in San Diego, that typically account for about 1/10 of our budget,” Diana Kutlow, director of development for Hands of Peace, said. “Because we are small and

nimble, we were able to quickly pivot to a ‘Virtual Benefit’ with online content and an online auction

so we can make the most of the generous auction donations from community businesses and all the work our volunteer committees had already done.” Kutlow said the funds raised will support the nonprofit’s mission during a difficult time. “This is a rare opportunity for a small nonprofit, and we will need resources for staff, surveys and focus groups, and impact analy-

sis,” Kutlow said. “We also want to continue to offer year-round Alumni Seminars in Israel/Palestine and well as in the U.S. The Summer Program is just the beginning of their leadership journey. Now we need to develop ways to continue to connect them using new technology and partnerships.” Without the donations, it won’t just be the young participants who are hurt. There will be a domino effect. “The people who are ultimately affected are the courageous young people who want to reach across borders and boundaries to listen to people who have dramatically different perspectives, to learn how to have civil discourse and how to change their societies for the better,” Kutlow said. “That loss would affect us all.” The San Diego Chil-

dren’s Discovery Museum is just one other nonprofit that was forced to take its annual fundraiser online. Wendy Taylor, executive director for the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, said the nonprofit’s annual gala was scheduled for March 28. The event was more meaningful this year as it was meant to celebrate a milestone anniversary for the beloved museum. “With our museum closed to the public and our gala postponed, we have experienced a drastic loss in both earned revenue and donations,” Taylor said. “Our 20th anniversary spring gala was meant to be held on March 28th to support our access for all programs, and instead we hosted a flash fundraiser to supplement some of the revenue lost by postponing our gala.” Despite the inability to

host a gala, Taylor said the museum’s online fundraiser gained nearly $10,000 in donations. “We have been touched by the philanthropic community showing up for us, as we could not get through this critical time without donor support,” Taylor said. “I have been especially impressed by the number of foundations who have reached out to check on us, offer additional funding, or expedite their funding processes. It is clear the philanthropic community cares deeply about local nonprofits like our museum and the families we serve.” “Donations of any size are important,” Taylor said.

Governor halts water disconnects SACRAMENTO — Building on efforts to provide support for residents during California’s State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov.

The order, issued on April 2, builds on the steps already taken by the California Public Utilities Commission for private water systems and more than 100 public water systems within the state that have adopted their own policies for not shutting off water service to residents facing financial distress during the health emergency.

 Secretary for Environmental Protection Jared Blumenfeld praised the Newsom’s leadership in ensuring safe and affordable drinking water. “A lot of communities and families are having their water shut off,” Blumenfeld said. “This Executive Order allows for water to be turned back on and not shut off during this emergency – both residences and critical workforce small businesses.” The Secretary added that water shutoffs have created hardships, but “this will do a huge amount to change that.” “Access to water and sanitation are critical to maintain in the midst of this public health crisis,” said State Water Resources Control Board Chair E. Joaquin Esquivel. In addition to a prohibition on residential and critical infrastructure sector small business water shutoffs, the governor’s order requires water systems to restore service to residences that were shut off for non-payment after the March 4, 2020, emergency proclamation. The order also directs that State Water Board to identify ways to support water systems and their customers throughout the crisis. The state Water Board is working on several interactive websites for water customers and drinking water systems.

Finding your beer ‘happy places’ Cheers! North County

Ryan Woldt


remember the chh-pfft of the can opening. I remember flopping into my favorite patio chair, and kicking my feet up on another chair just close enough to reach. I took a big swig of my beer. It was ice cold. It had a husky, hoppy flavor, and the carbonation fizzed and popped as it swirled around like a Tilt-A-Whirl at a county fair. After the beer cannonballed down my throat, my lips parted and an irrepressible sigh of satisfaction released into the world. The porch is where I do

where they believed beer tastes the best (besides your favorite brewery or watering hole of course). The emphasis is on place, not situation. Here is the curated list of the top 10 best places to drink a beer, and know it will taste incredible. 1. On the Roof: There is something cool about being on the roof. You’re up high looking down on your kingdom. On the roof all things are possible. It is a place of big ideas, and big flavors. Due to the safety concerns of drinking at great heights stick with a lower ABV pilsner or wheat ale. I’m partial to Oceanside’s Bagby Sweet Ride Pilsner. 2. Around a Campfire:

In this time of need ... How YOU can help Please text WECARE2020 to 71777 or visit

How WE can help If you need food, housing or safe shelter, please contact us at or (760) 753-8300. 24/7 Domestic Violence Hotline: (877) 633-1112

Campfires are magic, and after a long day of hiking, setting up camp, chopping fire wood, or just heading to the backyard calls for a beer while the stars begin to pop out between the treetops. 3. In the Garage: The garage is where cars get worked on, and power tools are stored. Cards get played. Stories get told, and beers get drunk. You’re home, but you’re also out. According to my father the best garage to have a beer in is his neighbor’s because, “…he has a beer refrigerator, and I don’t!” 4. At the Stadium: Enjoy a beer while tailgating in the parking lot, or while packed in with fans screaming for your favorite team. Even paying insane prices at the concessions seems to make more sense. Win or lose that is going to be a good beer. 5. Overlooking the Ocean, Lake or River: A large portion of beer is water, and when you take a moment to appreciate the places from whence it came you’ll find your beer tastes better. Expect some bonus appreciation in your mouth if you’re watching a sunset. 6. On Top of a Mountain: Either after hiking up it, or getting ready for your last run down to the ski lodge. Look out at the range, and enjoy. That moment is tailor-made for an IPA. Perhaps a Second Chance Seize the Day IPA. 7. On a Boat: Pull up on a sandbar in a pontoon, cruise down the river in a kayak or just float out in the middle. The type of boat matters. Canoes, kayaks, pontoons and sailboats will inspire your taste buds more than a speedboat or cruise ship. 8. On the Porch: It’s comfortable. It’s home. It’s a place where stress goes to die. Shoutout to the couch which is your at-home backup if the weather is bad. 9. In the Shower: A beverage in the shower implies that you are getting ready for something. The anticipation is building, and with it your beer drinking enjoyment. 10. At the Park: The smell of a grill. The whizz of a frisbee. A nap under some lazy clouds, and the potential risk of getting caught make the park a classic beer happy spot. Bonus place: In a hammock. Did I miss one? Let me know @Cheers!

Napa Valley reaches out with cellar library wines taste of wine


apa Valley has just gone to its ace of hearts in a bold effort to appeal to its many customers who, over the years, have traveled to this fabled wine country and had a wine experience unlike any other. Many wineries are offering their coveted cellar library wines at sharply discounted prices if purchased directly online or at the winery. The Covid-19 disease knows no bounds, including the north coast of California and its wine country greats. Napa produces 4% of all the wines in California, yet accounts for 80% of its sales, an eye-popping ratio! Food & Wine Magazine reports an average price for a ton of Cabernet Sauvignon is now $8,062, about double what it was in 2007. Divide that price by 100 and you get an industry rule on the suggested retail price of a bottle of high-quality Cab at the most well-known wineries, a lot to lose if the coronavirus pandemic swept through the Napa Valley. Cabernet is one of some 34 different varietals of wine grapes available in the valley with prices lower than the elite Cab. Wineries in Napa that have continuous discounts and special offerings through virtual tastings to engage and connect include: Paul Hobbs, Chateau Montelena, Inglenook, Lewis, Merryvale, Hall, Roundpond, Groth, Raymond, St. Supery and Plumpjack, etc. With some, shipping is waived. Go to for more.

Wine Wednesday on Instagram Live

A famous name in wines, Robert Mondavi, mastered the art of Napa Valley winemaking from the 1960s to his death in 2008. Today his son Michael, granddaughter Dina and grandson Rob Jr. operate Michael Mondavi Family Estate on Atlas Peak in Napa Valley. Rob has developed Wine Wednesday during his stay-at-home Instagram Live Wednesday programs that begin at 4 p.m. Rob said of this online streaming program, “We talk about wine and

A CLASSIC SCENE from the original foodie movie, “Big Night,” starring Stanley Tucci, left, and Tony Shalhoub, right. Courtesy photo

Food movies worth savoring lick the plate david boylan


iven all the time we’ve been spending at home recently, I’ve been catching up on some movies, leaning toward those with a culinary angle, and reflecting on some that have had a lasting memory on me. I should say up front that some of these movies do not have a culinary focus at all, yet the food scenes in them are some of the more memorable moments in the movie. I’ll start with just about any Martin Scorsese movie, or at least those with an Italian mob element, as he always seems to include a very detailed meal preparation that is shot beautifully. “Goodfellas” is one of those movies that I can watch over and over and it never gets old, and there are three culinary-related scenes in it that are simply beautiful. The first is when Henry Hill, played by Ray Liotta, is taking his girlfriend Karen (Lorraine Bracco) out on a date to a local supper club. Given his connections at the club, he of course bypasses the pedestrian entrance, instead going downstairs and winding, in a beautiful one-shot scene, through the bowels of the kitchen, past chefs, waiters, busboys and various toughs who he tips along the way as part of the privilege. When he enters the dining room, a table and bottle of champagne are delivered to an empty spot in the crowded dining room and they are seated like royalty. One of the best lines

in the movie follows when Karen asks, “What do you do for a living?” and Henry replies, “I’m in construction.” On a side note, “Family Guy” does a great spoof on this scene that involves Chris and a trade school. Google “Family Guy Goodfellas” for a good laugh. Two more notable food scenes from “Goodfellas” include the relatively cushy prison conditions afforded the jailed mobsters who are having the best steaks, lobsters, bread and wine smuggled in regularly. The close-up of Pauly (Paul Sorvino) slicing garlic with a razor blade is a thing of beauty. In one of the final scenes that is a masterful display of sound and visual editing, Henry Hill is preparing for a drug shipment while overseeing the preparation of the “gravy,” as he calls the red sauce, veal cutlets and meatballs. Making sure the food is done right is as important to him as the details of the drug deal. All I know is that every time I watch that movie, I am left craving Italian food. On the topic of movies that whet an appetite for Italian food, “Big Night” is right up there and probably my favorite culinary-themed movie ever. Released in 1996, it was on the forefront of the culinary revolution and before the term “foodie” existed. It’s a beautiful film starring Stanley Tucci, Tony Shaloub, Isabella Rossellini, Minnie Driver, Marc Anthony and Allison Janney. You have to just trust me on this one if you have not seen it. It took me a hot second to see that the culinary star of the movie “Ratatouille” is indeed a rat, but after that I was sold and do not hesitate to name this as my favorite animated movie of all time and top five culi-

nary movie. The great thing is it’s one you can enjoy with your kids and love it just as much. Other foodie-focused movies I’ve enjoyed and would endorse without hesitation include “Julie & Julia,” “Like Water for Chocolate,” “Chef” and “Babette’s Feast.” I’m going to end this column revisiting a couple scenes in non-foodie movies that, like in “Goodfellas,” are essential to the movie. The first comes from “The Godfather” and is a classic scene that proves instructional as well. Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 film has a sauce recipe written in the script, as Vito Corleone’s close associate, Peter Clemenza (Richard Castellano), offers his version of the perfect sauce. He explains: “You start out with a little bit of oil. Then you fry some garlic. Then you throw in some tomatoes, tomato paste, you fry it; you make sure it doesn't stick. You get it to a boil; you shove in all your sausage and your meatballs. Add a little bit of wine, and a little bit of sugar —that's my trick." I so love that. And OK, this scene from “This Is Spinal Tap” is not really essential in a foodie kind of way, but it makes me laugh very hard every time and does involve food. Nigel (Christopher Guest), one of the members of Spinal Tap, is backstage in his dressing room and having a bit of a meltdown over the catering, the mini bread in particular. “I don’t want this, I want large bread… but I can rise above it, I’m a professional,” he says as part of a two-minute rant. The miniature bread catastrophe is a beauty of a parody of every egomaniac rock star throwing a temper tantrum.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A problem in getting a workplace project up and moving might upset the Lamb, who likes things done on time. But be patient. The delay could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your instincts are usually on the mark, so if you feel uneasy about being asked for advice on a certain matter, it’s probably a good idea that you opt not to comply with the request. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might have two minds about a proposed change (which often happens with the Twins), but once all the facts are in, you’ll be able to make a definitive decision. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Crab’s frugal aspect dominates, so while you might be reluctant to pay for technical repairs, the time you save in getting things back on track could be well worth the expense. LEO (July 23 to August 22) While you Leos and Leonas continue to concentrate on doing well in your work-related ventures this week, consider reserving the weekend for sharing good times with family and friends. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good week to take stock of the important personal, professional or familial relationships in your life and see where you might need to do some intense shoring up.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your sense of justice makes you the likely person to help deal with a work- or family-related grievance. But you need to have any doubts about anyone’s true agenda resolved first. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The Scorpio passion for getting things done right and on time might rankle some folks. Never mind them. Others will be impressed, and they’re the ones you want in your corner. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Finances could be a mite tight this week. And, while things will ease up soon enough, you savvy Sagittarians will want to keep a prudent eye on your expenses at this time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although a technical malfunction could cause a temporary delay in getting things up and running, you could use the time to recheck your operation and make changes where necessary. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might find it difficult to resist making a snap judgment about a colleague’s behavior. But stick with your usual way of assessing situations and wait for the facts to come out. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Asking for help with a family situation might be the wisest course to take right now. Just be sure you turn to someone you can trust to do and say the right thing for the right reasons.
