17-year-old suspected in park slaying
SAN MARCOS -NEWS
By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad Police Department has arrested a 17-year-old male on suspicion of fatally stabbing Lisa Thorborg last month at Hosp Grove Park, law enforcement officials said. According to Lt. Justin Jackowski, the suspect was arrested Monday evening, Dec. 14, on the 2900 block of Ocean Street in Carlsbad. Police are withholding his name because the suspect is a juvenile. Jackowski said the boy is a Carlsbad resident and not a transient. Officials have not disclosed a suspected motive for the killing, which sent ripples of fear through Carlsbad. “We understand that the community has been on edge since that tragic day in November when Lisa was found on Hosp Grove Trail,” said Jackowski. “Our unwavering mission has been to find the suspect for Lisa, her family and the community of Carlsbad.” Thorborg, 68, had recently moved to Carlsbad from Portland, Oregon, according to statements from her family. She was walking along Hosp Grove Trail East on the morning of Nov. 23 when she was TURN TO SLAYING ON A8

ENCINITAS — A 95-year-old Navy war hero received one of the U.S. military’s most prestigious honors during a ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 12, at American Legion Post 416 in Encinitas. Capt. E. Royce Williams, of Escondido, was awarded the Medal of Val-

After tough year, Solana Beach municipal finances look good By Dan Brendel
SOLANA BEACH — The City of Solana Beach’s annual financial report and audit indicates an overall clean bill of health, including a relatively high level of pension funding, notwithstanding economic pressures due to COVID-19. Lance, Soll and Lunghard, an independent auditing firm, reviewed the city’s books through the fall, ultimately rendering an “unmodified opinion.” “This is the highest opinion that we can render,” auditor Ryan Domino told the Solana Beach City Council at its Dec. 9 meeting. This means “the numbers and amounts and disclosures [in the city’s financial statements] can be relied upon for making financial decisions and reporting to bond agencies, grantor agencies, whoever [else] would rely on these statements.” The city government’s net position — it’s bottom line, including all its activities — increased from $81 million last fiscal year to $84 million this year. The city increased its net position every year except one over the last decade. “Net position, the difference between assets and liabilities, is one way to measure the city’s financial health,” according to the report accompanying the audit. “Over time, in-
SOLANA BEACH’S total General Fund revenues grew nearly 11% compared with the previous year, according to a independent financial audit by Lance, Soll and Lunghard. Graphic by Dan Brendel
creases or decreases in net position are an indicator of whether the financial health is improving or deteriorating.” The positive balance of the city’s General Fund, its primary operating fund, also increased year on year, from nearly $14 million to more than $15 million. This balance comprises the city’s reserves. Healthy reserves help a city weather unexpected
expenses and downturns, as well as borrow money on more favorable terms. The city has some $23 million of outstanding principal debt, plus an additional $17 million of interest due through 2050. This borrowing has funded, for example, streetscaping and wastewater-related capital improvement. Solana Beach’s total General Fund revenues grew nearly 11% year on year.
Oceanside City Council leans toward appointment to fill District 1 vacancy By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — Residents who are interested in a seat on City Council can start sending their applications in to the City Clerk’s office. City Council officially certified the official November election results from the Registrar of Voters during a special meeting on Dec. 15. As newly elected Mayor Esther Sanchez was sworn in, her District 1 council seat became vacant. Council now only has four members after former Deputy Mayor Jack Feller’s term expired. Council is now required to either fill the District 1 vacancy by appointing a new member or calling for a special election to fill the vacancy at the next scheduled election date, not less than 114 days from the call of the special election. According to the City Clerk’s office, though the city Elections Code allows for an election date on March 2, 2021, the city doesn’t have time to pro-

ern South Dakota before joining the Navy in 1943. During his 37-year-long military career, Williams has received the Distinguished Flying Cross, Silver and
vide the required notice. Because of this, if a special election were to be called, it wouldn’t occur until Nov. 2, 2021. If Council chooses to fill the vacancy by appointment, the new member would hold the seat until the term’s expiration in December 2022. City Clerk Zeb Navarro estimated that the special election would likely cost the city more than $250,000, meanwhile an appointment would have no financial impact besides advertising the council seat vacancy. Council approved moving forward with accepting applications for an appointment in a 3-1 vote with Sanchez opposed. Sanchez urged her fellow members to consider “following the democratic process” by allowing voters to fill the vacancy instead. A few residents who spoke virtually at the meeting also urged Council to do the same. “You can’t put a price on democracy,” said Diane
Nygaard, an Oceanside resident. Councilmember Chris Rodriguez explained he was supportive of an election but felt waiting until November would be too long to go without a fifth council member. Sanchez pointed out that this would be the fourth appointment City Council has made in four years. The others were the appointment of current Councilmember Peter Weiss to his former role as mayor in 2018, Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim to his council seat in 2019 and Navarro as City Clerk that same year. In November, Keim and Weiss were elected to fill the Council’s District 3 and 4 seats, respectively, and Navarro was elected as City Clerk. Council has until Feb. 12, 2021 to make an appointment, though the decision woul. Residents interested in the council seat must file their applications with the City Clerk by 4 p.m. on Jan. 8, 2021.
Bronze stars and Legion of Merit with a Combat “V.” C ong ressma n- elect Darrell Issa (R-50) also delivered remarks during the ceremony. “It is still appropriate on a bipartisan basis that Congress push to make sure
not just that you become a recipient of the Medal of Honor, but that in fact, you be a standard-bearer for many who are not here, who will not be remembered and who stories are often not as well documented,” Issa said.
Property taxes, the city’s largest revenue source, continued to climb, up more than 4% year on year, with another 3% bump expected this fiscal year. Residential assessments rose nearly 6% over last year and 53% over ten years. “Since the 2008 recession, the city’s median home value has steadily risen,” reaching $1.4 million this year, according to the report.
While Solana Beach’s pension plan is more adequately funded than many, councilmembers expressed some concern about keeping pacing with the city’s growing liability. The California Public Employees’ Retirement System, or CalPERS, receives funding from CalPERS investment earnings, employee contributions and employer contributions. The city’s share is 75% funded this year, down from 78% in FY 2015, despite the city’s annual contribution. The city has pension savings outside CalPERS, which, if included in the city’s accounting, would raise the funded ratio as high as 91%, said Rod Greek, the city’s finance director. Accounting standards currently don’t allow the city to include outside trusts in its financial reports. On average as of 2019, CalPERS pension plans for police and fire were 72% funded and plans for all non-safety city employees were 76% funded. A funding status less than 100% means estimated future obligations to retirees exceed assets set aside to pay those obligations, taking into account various assumptions — such as how long retirees will live, inflation and the rate of return on the pension fund’s invested assets.
In part because CalPERS has been lowering its assumed rate of return in recent years, the city’s share of the pension liability reported in its financial statements has increased, “even though we’re throwing money at it,” Greek said. Changing the assumed rate of return in turn changes the expected future value of assets. This year, using a 7.15% assumed rate of return, the city’s pension liability weighs in at $15 million. Raising the assumed rate of return by one-percentage point would decrease the city’s liability to $9 million. Decreasing it one percentage point would raise the liability to $23 million. This subjective valuation means, even “if we had the money to pay [the city’s pension liability] off right now, we could next year still be looking at a deficit,” said City Manager Greg Wade. This year CalPERS will again reduce its assumed rate of return to 7%, “which some believe is still too high,” that is, underestimating liability, he said. The city also puts money aside for retirees’ healthcare benefits. That plan is 24% funded this year, up from 5% in 2017, assuming a 6% rate of return.

Nursing home residents need high vaccine priority
Still seeking congressional compromise on COVID relief By Rep. Mike Levin
It has been more than 10 months since the first case of COVID-19 in the United States, and we are just now experiencing the most devastating stretch of this pandemic. More than 16.5 million people in the United States have been infected, and at least 300,000 have tragically died, including more than 1,100 in San Diego County alone. Hospitals are being overrun, small businesses are failing, and job losses are mounting every day. Americans are in pain, and Congress must meet this moment. It’s long past time for Republicans and Democrats to recognize the gravity of this situation, set aside our differences, and provide relief for the American people. If you’ve watched one of the dozens of virtual town halls I’ve held during this pandemic, you know how frustrated I am that the Senate has refused to act on legislation the House passed in May to support front line workers, small businesses, state and local governments, and families struggling to
make ends meet. Instead, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested that we take a “pause” and allow states to go bankrupt. That inaction was a colossal failure for our country, but it’s not too late to act. Recently, a group of House and Senate members from both parties offered a proposal that would provide $908 billion in federal aid to get us through the next several months of the pandemic. It would help state and local governments maintain critical services, keep small businesses afloat, extend unemployment for those in need, help schools adapt, and strengthen vaccine distribution. Those are all critically important things that we must do immediately to get through this winter, but it’s not enough. We should provide far more assistance for schools to improve distance learning and better prepare for safer in-person classes, and we need to invest much more in childcare services. We should be doing more for those who have lost their jobs, who are strug-
gling to put food on the table or pay for rent. We should provide far more funding for state and local governments to keep first responders on the job and public services running. And we should be investing much more in the distribution of vaccines, as well as expanding our testing and contact tracing capacity. Those are all things that I will keep fighting for every single day, but I won’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. I’m willing to support an imperfect bill if it means getting more relief to the people I serve quickly. That’s what compromise is all about, but compromise only works if my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are willing to do the same. We can still pass a bipartisan bill to save lives and livelihoods if both sides are willing to meet in the middle. The American people cannot and should not have to wait any longer. I urge my colleagues to put their differences aside and treat this emergency like our lives depend on it – because they do.
An open letter to Encinitas Postmaster Dear Encinitas Postmaster: The Encinitas Gardenview Post Office has been doing a great job trying to accommodate the increased volume of shipping during the holiday season. I really appreciate the extended hours, even Sunday morning, and the efficient and courteous service by all the personnel. What I can’t understand is the continued absence of outdoor drive-up mailboxes and the recent practice of locking the box-
es evenings and weekends. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the boxes fill up and create a traffic jam of people who can’t cram their holiday cards into the boxes and have no easy or safe way to turn around and get into the parking lot to walk in and leave their letters. I was told that the three boxes that were removed just before mail voting started were taken away due to low volume of usage. Clearly that is not the case anymore, if it ever was. Can you please replace
those boxes and leave them open for use after hours? Perhaps a video camera system and lighting could deter mail theft without inconveniencing all the customers who are currently frustrated by the situation. Again, thank you for the excellent in person service. Please extend it to those who choose not to get out of their cars and expose themselves to crowds of people during the pandemic. Lisa R. Shaffer Encinitas
eachers’ unions, police and firefighters argued in early December they ought to get the expected new coronavirus vaccines before anyone else but health workers. They got a tough response at the federal Centers for Disease Control, now operating as it is supposed to for the first time since Donald Trump became president. Freed after the fall election of censorship by political operatives Trump stationed in its executive offices, the CDC let its vaccine advisory committee of top epidemiologists and ethics experts write the priority guidelines most states will follow in distributing stillscarce vaccines. They very properly placed nursing home residents alongside medical personnel as the first recipients. But that’s not how California now says it will operate. Yes, health workers will be the first Californians to get the vaccine. But not nursing home residents. This is a huge failing in the state’s plan for prioritizing inoculations against the plague that has killed almost 300,000 Americans — about one-third of them living in long-term care. Yes, just about everyone agrees front-line medical responders need first crack at the two new vaccines entering national use. Beyond that, things are murkier. People with underlying pre-existing medical conditions like suppressed immune systems and heart disease ought to go next, some academic ethicists said. Nope, said others, the vaccine should go first to the elderly, about 65% of the COVID-19 patient load. Teachers, cops and firefighters should make up the second group, said
thomas d. elias
their unions, teachers arguing that schools can only reopen widely after they get their shots. This has some validity but ignores the one group that fits into both the medical condition class and the elderly category: nursing home residents. The proportion of disease victims and the degree of isolation among denizens of nursing homes has been staggering. Most have been deprived of virtually all direct contact with family and friends for the 9-month (so far) duration of anti-virus lockdown measures. For some, this causes extreme disorientation and distress as they suffer diseases and death in isolation, notwithstanding a few ground-floor window sightings and the occasional outdoor visit. The coronavirus has also taken more lives in nursing homes than anywhere else — about 40% of California deaths from the virus. With each viral surge, the scene in nursing homes grows more grim. Especially in larger facilities catering mostly to Medi-Cal patients, who often turn their life savings over to government to qualify for financial aid. During October and November, new COVID-19 cases in nursing homes surged fourfold in more than 20 states. Unlike most others, residents of the homes can’t do much about it. They cannot avoid close contact with nursing home staffers, from nurses and other aides to admin-
istrators. Those staffers come and go daily, subject to the same contagions as the general public. That’s why even California’s plan gives them the same priority as other health workers. Staffers serve meals to residents, help them bathe, assist them to sitting areas and to bathrooms. When they are infected, residents are, too. When caseloads outside the homes rise, they skyrocket on the inside. What’s more, most residents are elderly. Few would live in skilled nursing facilities if they did not have some pre-existing condition also making them extra-susceptible to COVID-19. Residents of the 14,000 facilities belonging to the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living may be followed statistically more closely than people in other homes. It’s from them that we learn how caseloads among long-term care residents rise faster and lead to many more deaths per capita than on the outside. This all explains why the CDC committee had nursing home folks share top priority for the new vaccinations. They may be only subsets of the elderly and people with medical conditions, but they are the main reason statistics for those two classes are so cruel. If the lives of people in the homes have value — and California’s newly set priorities suggest some think they don’t — they must get the new shots before anyone other than front-line medical workers. But in California, it appears they won’t, and that is both inhumane and unfair. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congress authorizes several regional projects By Samantha Nelson
REGION — Congress is expected to pass two bills before the end of the year that will bring millions to the region for local priorities including Camp Pendleton construction projects as well as area bluff erosion and flood protection projects. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the Water Resources Development Act, a bill that authorizes development for local projects in partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers. Specifically, the bill includes authorization for the San Luis Rey River Flood Protection project in Oceanside and the Del Mar bluffs shoreline project. The long-awaited San Luis Rey River Flood Protection project has been stalled due to the need for more funding for completion before turning it over to Oceanside’s city government. The bill includes language that approves an increase in project cost. Additionally, the bill authorizes a feasibility study for the Del Mar bluffs shoreline project, which will address erosion along the coastal rail line. The rail line connecting San Diego to Los Angeles is considered essential for the five major military installations in the San Diego area and is part of the US Army’s Strategic Rail Corridor Network. The bill also includes language that expedites the completion of a feasibility study for the Oceanside Shoreline Study. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) said the three previously mentioned projects were his top priorities for the Water Resources Development Act, which he called a “critical piece of legislation” for the 49th District. “These projects help save lives, property and
ecosystems, and I’ll continue to work with the Army Corps and local governments to see them completed,” Levin said in a statement provided to The Coast News. Congress is also expected to pass the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2021, which includes $152.5 million for construction projects on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. Of that amount, $25.2 million will be used for a combat water training facility, $21.8 million for warehouse consolidation and modernization, $68.5 million for the 1st MARDIV operations complex, and $37 million for I MEF Consolidated Interim Storage Center. The projects will require additional funding from Congress, though this is a “key step” for the projects according to Levin. The NDAA bill also includes provisions that will increase pay for troops and expand housing, healthcare and legal benefits for veterans, according to Levin’s office. President Donald Trump has threatened to veto the bill for a few different reasons, one of which is because it did not repeal a section of the Communications Decency Act that protects companies like Google, Twitter and Facebook from liability for platform content. He also opposes a provision that removes the names of Confederate generals from military bases. Eric Mee, a spokesperson for Levin’s office, said a veto from Trump won’t matter as the bill has a veto-proof majority in the House and Senate. The Water Resources Development Act still needs to be passed by the Senate, but Mee noted that members of both the House and Senate negotiated the bill, so it should pass by the end of the year as well.
CARLSBAD — A conflict of interest between a Superior Court judge and one of Councilwoman Cori Schumacher’s attorneys led to a continuance in a case involving two restraining orders and a pair of anti-SLAPP suits from two defendants. The case is scheduled for Feb. 5 at Vista Superior Court, at which time Judge David Berry will hold three different hearings. An interim judge on Dec. 15 said the court has a shortage of judges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which made scheduling the hearing difficult. Berry will hear the anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) cases first at 8:30 a.m., followed by a former defendant's request to collect attorney’s fees from Schumacher at 11 a.m. After a lunch break, the court will then address a restraining order case at 1:30 p.m. Schumacher filed a civil harassment restraining order against three men — Larry Posner, Noel Breen and Anthony “Tony” Bona — in September. The case against Posner was dismissed, although he is seeking attorney’s fees, which will be the second hearing on Feb. 5. Breen and Bona, meanwhile, filed anti-SLAPP lawsuits against Schumacher leading up to the Oct. 15 hearing for the restraining
Deputies seek man suspected of setting fire By City News Service
SAN MARCOS — Authorities reached out to the public on Tuesday for help in identifying and locating a man suspected of starting a vegetation fire near a San Marcos place of worship last week. The blaze happened shortly before 11:55 a.m. Dec. 10 at 1111 La Moree Road, south of state Route 78, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The fire burned roughly 100 square feet of vegetation near a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, but firefighters extinguished the flames before any buildings were damaged, officials said. Investigators determined the fire was intentionally set and nearby surveillance cameras captured video and images of the suspect, described as a white man riding a mountain bike and carrying a brown backpack. The suspect was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and black shorts. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000. Anyone with information on the identity or location of the suspect is asked to call the sheriff’s bomb/arson unit at 619-5508158 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.

orders. Bona’s attorney, Erik Jenkins, said if they win the anti-SLAPP suits, it would be a blow to the restraining orders. “It makes sense to hear the anti-SLAPP first,” Jenkins said. “If we win the anti-SLAPP, it would be fatal to the restraining order.” Schumacher’s attorneys, Andy Schooler and Bryan Pease, both disagree and believe there would still be grounds for the order. Schumacher’s restraining orders against Breen, who no longer lives in Carls-
bad, and Bona were granted on a temporary basis on Oct. 15 until the court could receive motions, more evidence and each side could gather witnesses. According to Schumacher's court filings, Bona “had intentions of forcing me to leave my home,” along with intentions to “surveil me and post such surveillance online.” Schumacher also claims Bona made a number of “veiled threats” against her, including forcing the Carlsbad official to leave her home and “stalking,” following more than a year
of “consistent, increasingly obsessive and distressing activity directed at me and those who publicly associate with me.” In her most recent response to defendants, Schumacher has a number of witnesses who said they were harassed by Breen. However, Breen has steadfastly denied such allegations, pointing to his blog where he shares his opinions on Carlsbad politics, which he said has drawn the ire of Schumacher, according to court records. Bona’s attorney said both men are constitutionally protected to assert their First Amendment rights to criticize Schumacher for her political opinions, ideology and actions as a city official. Also, Mauriello and Jenkins have each filed motions with the court to dismiss Schumacher’s most recent response to the anti-SLAPP suits. Both attorneys said Schumacher’s response, which was not received until two days after the Dec. 2 deadline, is full of irrelevant statements and evidence and should not be admissible. Berry will decide the fate of those motions on Feb. 5. “We disagree with the anti-SLAPP motion,” Pease said of it being a fatal blow to the restraining order cases. “We got witnesses testifying about things not in the anti-SLAPP.”

Coronavirus Region ICUs crowd with COVID-19 patients By City News Service
REGION — San Diego County public health officials reported 2,807 new COVID-19 infections — the second highest daily total — and 23 deaths Dec. 16 as the number of intensive care patients continues to climb. Wednesday’s reported cases are second only to Friday’s 2,867 and follow Monday’s 1,863 cases. Wednesday marks the 16th consecutive day with more than 1,000 cases. The county’s cumulative case total rose to 114,248 and the death toll increased to 1,217. The national death toll crossed 300,000 on Wednesday. A jump of 39 hospitalizations and five newly admitted ICU patients has officials concerned. With 301 COVID-19-positive patients in area ICUs Wednesday, that number passed the total patients without the virus — 282 — for the first time in the pandemic. San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said — in talking to hospital CEOs — doctors are postponing serious medical treatments such as tumor removal and organ transplant to free up ICU beds for COVID-19 patients. The number of hospitalizations also set a record Wednesday, with 1,171 patients with coronavirus in regional hospitals. He said the impact of group gatherings during Thanksgiving was clear and asked county residents to temporarily avoid gathering with family and friends over the upcoming holidays. The county’s hospitals have 16% of their ICU beds available, unchanged from Tuesday. The state estimates the ICU bed availability in the 11-county Southern California region at 0.5%, down from 1.7% on Tuesday. Only Northern California remains outside the

Gov. Gavin Newsom-directed stay-at-home order with 29.8% of ICU beds available. That order applies to regions with fewer than 15% ICU beds remaining. San Diego County has seen a 227% increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations in the past 30 days and a 155% increase in ICU patients in the same time frame. The previous peak in hospitalizations, in mid-July, topped out at around 400 patients. Supervisor Greg Cox asked for patience from county residents on Wednesday, as more vaccines were on the way. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved a different vaccine from Moderna to join the 28,275 Pfizer vaccines already in the region available for civilian acute health care workers. San Diego County is home to 82,623 healthcare workers working in acute hospital or psychiatric facilities, 39,755 of whom are considered “highest risk” and will receive vaccines first. The 28,000-plus will cover about 72% of that cohort until more vaccines arrive in California. Brittanee Randle, an emergency room nurse at Rady Children’s Hospital, was the first non-military San Diegan to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday. UC San Diego Health began administering vaccines Wednesday morning to emergency department, custodial staff and some of the nurses who, in early February, were the first to care for patients with a novel coronavirus who had been transported from Wuhan, China. “I came to the hospital to help out during the start of COVID-19, back when we first had patients from Wuhan,” said Dr. Marlene Millen, chief medical information officer and an internal medicine primary care physician at UCSD Health. “Walking up to the hospital that morning, I had no idea what lay in store.” County won’t enforce part of order after strip club ruling REGION — San Diego County on Dec. 16 suspended enforcement of provisions of California’s regional stay-at-home order regarding restaurants and live entertainment establishments in response to a court decision. A San Diego Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday that the state and county are prohibited from enforcing the order against two San Diego strip clubs. The county issued a statement Wednesday night announcing it was suspending enforcement of relevant portions of the order until it has clarity about the scope of the ruling by Judge Joel R. Wohlfeil.

Small businesses protest new restrictions By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — It is a matter of survival and at least 150 businesses in the city and Oceanside intend to “stand up” and push forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those are the sentiments of business owners across North County as the businesses launched what attorney Michael Curran called “a peaceful protest” on Friday, as scores of restaurants resumed outdoor and some indoor dining despite health orders from Gov. Gavin Newsom on Dec. 6 restricting such practices. Curran is working pro-bono with a number of the owners as part of the protest to provide advice and his firm’s services. Word spread last week on social media and people responded as Carlsbad Village saw an intense showing of support from those willing to brave the pandemic to patronize their local establishments. Hundreds of people made reservations and dined throughout the weekend, according to numerous media and social media reports. The protest includes a variety of small businesses such as restaurants, gyms and salons, to name a few Wohlfeil, who previously granted a similar temporary restraining order for Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club and Pacers Showgirls International, wrote in his nine-page ruling that the state of California and San Diego County have not provided evidence tying the spread of COVID-19 or lack of intensive care unit bed capacity to live adult entertainment or businesses with restaurant service. Wohlfeil’s ruling also applied to “San Diego County businesses with restaurant service,” though it was unclear exactly what businesses that portion of the ruling would
industries, Curran said. He said it is not a one-time deal, but rather a sustained protest to keep businesses afloat until emergency orders are lifted. Curran and his wife, Susan, said momentum for the protest was gained momentum about a week before Dec. 11. “The First Amendment of the United States Constitution doesn’t say how we can protest, it’s pretty broad,” Curran said. “So, we went, why don’t they stay open as part of a constitutionally protected peaceful protest? We’ve seen it up and down the state where people have said, ‘I’ve had it.’ If they don’t do it now, they won’t be back in business.” For Annie Rammel, owner of Oak + Elixir on State Street, the decision was simple. Either open and use their recently constructed outdoor patio or be out of business in about three months. She said she has no choice but to open as cost for delivery services eat into an already thin margin, while also fighting for the livelihoods of her employees, who need money for rent, utilities and other expenses. While it’s not ideal,
Rammel’s establishment was subject to some controversy earlier this year as they, along with others, were required to pay a $5,500 fee to the city for an emergency permit for outdoor dining. That was also on top of the several thousands of dollars she spent to build the patio along several parking spaces on State Street. The city refunded money to those businesses who had to set up outdoor accommodations. Also, Carlsbad police patrolled the area distributing educational flyers. San Diego County, meanwhile, has issued dozens of cease-and-desist letters, although its website was not updated on Dec. 14 to show if any letters had been issued over the weekend. Still, once word of the protest began, Rammel said she had 90 reservations for Dec. 11 before she even made her decision public. She also said the restaurant had a banner weekend and the support was “nonstop.” Resident Heather Ambrose said she was surprised at the number of people who came out to support the restaurants. She said it would be sad for those businesses to go out of business, but there is a “quiet” enthusiasm from
apply to. The ruling comes after the clubs recently received cease-and-desist letters from the California Attorney General’s Office, which stated Cheetahs and Pacers were operating in violation of the Dec. 3 stay-at-home policy barring outdoor and indoor dining, as well as large gatherings. Attorney Jason Sacuzzo, who represents Pacers, argued there hasn’t been a single case of COVID-19 transmission traced to either club since Wohlfeil issued the temporary restraining order in early November, a claim Wohlfeil referenced in his ruling.
The ruling is at odds with another San Diego judge’s finding in a separate case that denied a request from local restaurants and gyms to reopen. A hearing on the request for a preliminary injunction in that case is slated for this afternoon.

I feel responsible in making sure they have a paycheck. It’s part of my job and also the government, and they’re not doing that.” Curran, meanwhile, also discussed a recent ruling by a judge in Los Angeles calling Newsom’s most recent ban on outdoor dining arbitrary. The judge said the L.A. County health director failed to show the health benefits outweigh the economic effects by issuing the ban and L.A. County did not “offer evidence that outdoor dining presented a greater risk of spreading the virus,” according to KTLA and the Associated Press. The local order remains in place. Curran said the judge’s ruling means the order is not constitutional, but further litigation remains likely. Newsom has changed the reporting requirements several times, including the latest which centers on regions and the percentage of intensive care unit beds available. ed in the last four months to 384 organizations. Scott’s donation adds to over 3,500 donations since March for the fund intended to help San Diegans in need during the pandemic.

San Marcos council sworn, updates Climate Action Plan By Tigist Layne
A NEW COUNCIL has been seated in Del Mar. One of the more pressing matters city leaders face are affordable housing options and looming consequences should they violate state housing law. File photo
Del Mar to revisit housing penalties By Dan Brendel
DEL MAR — The newly comprised Del Mar City Council received a Dec. 14 primer on affordable housing planning, which rehearsed oft-cited risks of running afoul of state housing law, teeing up likely controversial policy discus-
ing policy specifics at their Jan. 11 meeting, must reach some agreement, with each other and HCD, before the April deadline to adopt a state-certified updated housing plan. Failure to do so risks state-imposed sanctions, such as rescindment of the city’s discretionary
Today, the city has no adequate zoning or affordable units that have been constructed.” Joseph Smith Planning Director, City of Del Mar
sions in the New Year. The city’s direction on housing policy has hung in limbo through election season and up to the present. Disagreements separated most council candidates, and not a few residents, into two distinct and as-of-yet irreconcilable camps. November’s election installed a handful of new councilmembers, decisively shifting the local legislature’s majority stance on past points of contention — namely, whether and where to allow increased residential density. Councilman Dwight Worden remains the only member of the old majority, which voted in the fall to increase density in the city’s North Commercial area. Then-Councilwoman, now-Mayor Terry Gaasterland and Councilman Dave Druker unsuccessfully opposed that decision but twice blocked (Sept. 8 and Oct. 5) an accompanying General Plan amendment necessary to consummate the change. They say the area is poorly suited for density. Gaasterland wants to negotiate some alternative with the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), which implements state housing law. Freshmen Councilmembers Tracy Martinez and Dan Quirk have expressed views simpatico to Gaasterland's and Druker’s. The new council, scheduled to begin discuss-
land use control and eligibility for certain state grants. The loss of grants could jeopardize the city’s hope to strike a deal with the Del Mar Fairgrounds to put some of the city’s state-mandated affordable housing quota on Fairgrounds property. “A certified [housing plan] is our primary key to getting grant money,” Planning Director Joseph Smith told council Monday. “If we don't have grant funds to secure a [Fairgrounds] deal, the question to council will be, how do we pay for it.” Adding another wrinkle, residents in November gathered enough signatures to call a referendum, hoping to overturn the past council’s North Commercial up-zoning decision. However, planning staff contends, lacking some realistic alternative, the city must up-zone these parcels in order to comply with state requirements. “Repealing that ordinance would be a step in the wrong direction,” Smith said. “Without North Commercial the city will be unable to meet its ‘adequate site’ requirements,” Principal Planner Amanda Lee said. “Adequate sites” mean those zoned to the minimum density the state considers suitable for affordable housing — 20 units per acre in Del Mar. “Today, the city has no
adequate zoning or affordable units that have been constructed,” Smith said. “This is largely the city's track record that the state sees.” Gaasterland, Martinez and Quirk helped gather signatures for the referendum. “I still don’t believe” the city lacks any alternative but to up-zone North Commercial, Gaasterland said. She believes the city’s planning efforts so far have adhered too readily to the state’s “formulas,” rather than pressing HCD for alternatives suitable to Del Mar’s context. She acknowledges state law requires up-zoning, if not in North Commercial, then somewhere else. But that requirement is “fundamentally, morally, ethically wrong, I’m not going to budge on that,” she said. “Laws are created and laws can be changed. … If we fail, and we may, and Del Mar is up-zoned by the state …, it’s not going to be because I did not try.” “The staff is working on a zone amendment that does not allow for 20 units per acre on the more sensitive parts of the North Commercial zone,” Druker said. The tweaked amendment will come before the council a third time probably in February. By comparison, failed earlier versions made no distinction between North Commercial’s 16 parcels. Under the 1976 Coastal Act, environmental constraints already likely would’ve precluded development on any North Commercial parcels adjacent to the San Dieguito Lagoon, Lee told The Coast News previously. But the revised amendment would spell out that preclusion in black and white in the General Plan, perhaps making it a less bitter pill to swallow. Having not yet seen the reworked text, Gaasterland declined to say how she’d vote this time. Worden said he hopes Monday’s workshop clarified for all parties that state law requires a certain degree of up-zoning, even
if the city could conceivably meet its housing quota without up-zoning. He hopes voters “come to their senses” and realize they “have to do it.” Worden believes the council shouldn’t die on HCD’s hill now but should avert state sanctions by taking action to get into HCD’s good graces by the April deadline. The council could then pursue potential alternatives with HCD, amending the city’s housing plan TURN TO HOUSING ON A11
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council held a special meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 8, to certify the Nov. 3 election results and swear in re-elected Councilmember Sharon Jenkins and newly elected Councilmember Ed Musgrove. Jenkins (District 3) took her oath of office followed by Musgrove (District 4). Councilmember atlarge Jay Petrek was also present for his last council meeting. Petrek was appointed at large in 2019 by the council to fill a vacant seat but opted not to run for re-election. “I would like to thank everyone in my district. … It’s a great position of honor, and I will work hard every day to gain and earn the trust of everyone in my district, and working with all members of the council and the staff to continue to make San Marcos a fantastic place to live,” Musgrove said after he was sworn in. Jenkins, who was elected to City Council at large in 2012 and re-elected at large in 2016, thanked her supporters and encouraged everyone to stay true to their nonpartisanship. “I think we owe it to our residents to not allow political forces outside of our community to try to influence us,” Jenkins said
after taking her oath. “I’m really excited to work with each councilmember and the staff, and I think we’re going to all get through this together.” At the council’s regular meeting, the council honored Petrek with a certificate of recognition. “I thank you so much forthis honor. … I want to thank the council for the trust and the opportunity you gave me to serve with you all,” he said. “We have a great community to be proud of and I’m so happy to be part of it.” At the council’s regular meeting, the council honored Petrek with a certificate of recognition. The council then heard a presentation on an update to the city’s Climate Action Plan and voted to approve it.

SDUHSD votes to fully reopen by Jan. 27 By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — In the midst of a record-breaking number of COVID-19 cases, the San Dieguito Union High School Board voted 3-2 to resume full-time, on-campus instruction for 13,123 students starting on Jan. 27 on several North County campuses Despite warnings from Superintendent Robert Haley and assistant superintendents of Curriculum and Human Resources, district board trustees Maureen "Mo" Muir, Melisse Mossy and newest appointee Mike Allman voted to implement an “expanded reopening plan.” Board trustees Kristin Gibson and newly elected Katrina Young voted against the resolution. According to the proposal, “unless specifically ordered otherwise by an applicable public health order issued directly to the district by county or state,

quarter of the school year, January 27, 2021.” The newly instituted “expanded reopening plan,” an update to the existing Safe Reopening Plan established earlier in the year, prompted over 140 public comments from parents and community members, of which only 10 were read aloud. “We’re going to do [this] carefully and methodically and professionally. We’re not just going to throw kids back on campus,” Mossy said. Gibson and Young disagreed, along with administrative staff, saying they felt the district was unprepared to accept the entire student body back on January 27. The plan will go into effect on January 4, with students returning to campuses one day per week, with four days of distancing learning. On January 27, all students will have the option of returning to campuses five days a week. In accordance, the district will also require all faculty to return to classrooms full-time, rebuking
an official cease and desist letter from the California Teachers Association on December 9, stating the San Dieguito Faculty Association’s vehement opposition. Allman, a first-time school board trustee, authored the original expanded reopening plan, designating himself the board’s sole spokesperson on all COVID-19 matters. However, the plan was ultimately rewritten determining the entire board represents the district’s COVID-19 plan. Allman, who won his district seat by 326 votes among 17,744 votes cast, also suggested the district hire a San Diego law firm at $350 an hour to handle future legal battles as well as enact the “Rosenberg’s Rules of Order,” consolidating authority to the board chair, though both resolutions were ultimately denied. Through the course of the meeting, the board heard opinions from four physicians — emergency medicine specialist, pediatrician, cardiologist, and oncologist — who split 2-2 in regards to whether it was safe to institute the January reopening schedule. The district also heard the opinions of student representatives from San Dieguito High School Academy and Canyon Crest Academy, who both opposed the expanded reopening plan. Following the student’s comments, new trustees Allman and Young disagreed on the value of student’s opinions. “I would propose that we have a discussion right now about the value of ASP student’s opinions,” Allman said. “I think the value that they provided in what we have to decide TURN TO SCHOOL ON A13

doing, like using hashtag marketing right, the difference between all the social media platforms and how you need to post to be appropriate on each one.” He added that, because of what they learned through this experience, The Coast News realized the need for creating a new role, a community engagement editor, to handle social media. Catherine Tricker, the team’s faculty advisor and a lecturer at CSUSM, explained how valuable this experience is, not only for the students to face real business situations, but also for the businesses to get a fresh perspective. “They really leveraged their own skills,” Tricker said. “Being students and being young adults, one of the objectives was for The Coast News to reach the younger demographic, and the students quickly realized that they are that demographic, and they leveraged that and used their own skills and networks to reach that objective.” Because of this partnership, The Coast News has decided to start carrying The Cougar Chronicle, CSUSM’s student newspaper, on its website to make it more accessible to the community. “They’ve spent the past few years learning about it in the classroom, but getting the hands-on experience is so valuable,” Tricker said. “And to understand what it’s like to work as part of a business, to have real goals and real objectives, as well as real limitations, and having to execute that is such a good learning experience.”

SAN MARCOS — A team of five business students from California State University at San Marcos (CSUSM) recently partnered with The Coast News Group to help the publication grow its social media presence. Five seniors, Steven Landeros, Isabel Gabrail, Tommy Bito, Jasmine Holliday and Michelle Cronin, worked with The Coast News as part of their Senior Experience project, a program that matches students with projects submitted by regional and national businesses and organizations. The goal for this particular matchup was to increase the social media engagement of The Coast News, a news publication headquartered in Encinitas. “As a group, we came up with three objectives: growing the podcast, increasing the web trafficking and growing the paper’s social media presence,” Gabrail said. “It was a challenge being all online through Zoom, but it was a great experience because we were able to come together and share each of our own knowledge while being able to collaborate with a professional publication.” The team was made up of two business management majors, two marketing majors and one finance major. “These are people who are using social media all the time, which is what made it so helpful,” said Chris Kydd, The Coast News Group’s advertising director and associate publisher. “We’re already applying some basic things that I thought we already were

1.5-mile display of over 1 million holiday lights, holograms and lasers. Visitors attending the holiday light show arrive and remain in the safety of their cars, slowly snaking through the fairgrounds to view the different lit scenes of trucks, toy lands, fairytales, and Santa’s workshop while holiday music plays through their stereos.
The Waterman family attended the light show on Dec 10, their children in pajamas, wrapped up in blankets and holding hot chocolates in their car seats. “This was such a great way to get the kids out and is honestly, one of the only things for us to do as a family this holiday season,” Brittany Waterman said. “The kids loved go-

ing through the tunnels of lights and I loved that we could get out together to enjoy an event together.” The idea of a drive-thru holiday light show isn’t unfamiliar for locals who attended a similar drivethrough event, the Holiday of Lights, held from 19952012. In light of the pandemic and CBF production’s success with Concerts in Your Car, the company decided to resurrect their own modern-day drivethrough holiday light show. “We’re just so happy to have found a way to offer families a way to celebrate the holidays now that all the traditional parades have been canceled,” Leticia Wilson, Director of Marketing for CBF Productions said. “There are over one million lights sparkling and twinkling throughout the fairgrounds for families to enjoy. Everyone is happy to have the opportunity to create some holiday memories but safely and in their own space,” Wilson said. Attendees can stop to purchase a drive-through hot chocolate or snack as well as drop off perishables to North County Food Bank without ever leaving their cars during the experience, stating the event is produced in conjunction with all state-mandated health regulations. Additionally, according to CBF productions Holidays in Your Car is run by local employees, contributing to the regional economy, and donates $1 of each ticket to the Emelio Nares and Shelter to Soldier foundations in addition to collecting food for the North County Food Bank.

CARLSBAD — The pandemic still rages, but Carlsbad Sister City Ambassadors has, through Zoom meetings and distance involvement, still been active. Work continues for the virtual California Youth Leadership Summit on Feb. 6. The title of the Summit is “Peace, Kindness and Cooperation.” For this new endeavor, program mentors, volunteers and panelists are still needed. For more information, go to https://socalsistercities.org/yls. The California Sister City Association Community Program plans are ongoing for a “Getting to Know You” exchange with Carlsbad sister city, Futtsu, Japan.
CSCA needs Carlsbad volunteers who would like to talk with and get to know citizens of Futtsu. The setting will be informal and the conversation will be casual and in English. Call board member Polly Yu if interested, 760-672-0898. The Global Goals Virtual Exchange Series presented by Global Citizen Youth Leadership offers programs for Gen-Z students from around the world to provide character development opportunities to create global citizens and leaders.

if any pan out, he said. HCD hinted it might entertain alternatives in a previous statement to The Coast News, but expressed doubt the city could nail them down by the April deadline. Council also needs to allow extra density and ministerial development approval on two specific properties, the so-called “Watermark” parcels, planning staff said Monday. This action is of even greater consequence because it’s been overdue for a longer period of time. Whereas failure to lock down the North Commer-
cial up-zoning, in general, could result in penalties, Smith believes a failure to make the Watermark changes could pit the city against the Attorney General. But, at least in the past, Watermark hasn’t induced as much contention, the former council had voted unanimously Oct. 19 to initiate the rezoning process. Martinez and Quirk didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Alzheimer’s research groups get $7.46M grant to advance studies By City News Service
REGION — An alliance of local research institutions announced this week the National Institute on Aging has awarded it $7.46 million in federal grants to advance research to combat Alzheimer’s disease. The funds are headed to Collaboration4Cure, an alliance of top research institutions brought together by San Diego County and Alzheimer’s San Diego. C4C grew out of the work of The Alzheimer’s Project, a regional effort to address a rise in local cases of dementia, the region’s third-leading cause
of death after cancer and heart disease. “These grants are a big vote of confidence in our hunt for a cure as we look to end the terrible toll that Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia are taking on San Diego families,’’ said county Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who spearheaded the creation of The Alzheimer’s Project in 2014. “I believe the research funded by the grants will bring us closer to the day when San Diego doctors can offer a treatment or cure.’’ More than 84,000 San Diego County residents are living with Alzheimer’s,
while more than 200,000 residents care for someone with the disease. Philanthropist Darlene Shiley lost her husband, Donald, in 2010 to a series of strokes complicated by vascular dementia. Her mother and an aunt and uncle died from Alzheimer’s. In 2015, Shiley provided the seed money to start the research incubator and remains its lead donor. The county of San Diego has also provided funds. “I believe the day is coming when a diagnosis of dementia doesn’t have to be a death sentence,’’ she said. “The work underway

It’s their job to bring input from their schools here so I would say that they don’t just speak for themselves, they’re speaking for their community with guidance from their peers.” Duncan Brown, president of the San Dieguito Faculty Association, spoke to The Coast News after the meeting, reiterating the association’s dismay with not only the resolution but also the manner in which the final vote occurred. “The vote felt rushed,” Brown said. “Mr. Allman bullied his way through to pass that resolution as time was expiring at the end of the night without giving time for an honest dialogue.” In a written statement, Brown further elaborated

Our campuses will not be able to facilitate this model safely. “Students will crowd into classrooms, into hallways during passing periods — some of our schools have indoor hallways with 15 classes attached - and they will all be together during lunch. “I have been a counselor for 30 years, 23 within this district, and I have seen the majority of students adapt and some even thrive on this model. I believe the real reason the school board majority made this decision was to pander to party politics.” Ultimately, the San Dieguito Union High School District board was unable to complete its entire intended agenda and will return to complete discussions Thursday, Dec. 17 at 5 p.m. The meeting will be aired Live through the district’s website. The district has yet to provide the Dec. 15 board meeting available for public review.

Sports Fox 5 TV anchor embraces written word in kids book
sports talk jay paris
ndrew Luria wrestled with the packing tape, ripped open the box and who says Christmas doesn’t come early? “When it finally arrived,” Luria said, “it was pretty cool.” Luria’s wish list was singular and 14 years long. His regular gig is as a Fox 5 San Diego news anchor. His side hustle is as author of the just-released “The Adventures of Charlie Marley: M i d n i g h t ’s Moment in Time.” The book LURIA he started in 2006 is written for kids, and really, Luria is a big kid himself. While he’s smooth reading the headlines, Luria’s background is sports. The same goes for his three children, who are involved in football, basketball, soccer, baseball and anything else that is in season. Luria also coaches his youngsters. He might carry his fresh book to distribute at the next practice, in additional to his whistle. The tale is about children returning in time to relive some of sports’ grandest moments. It mixes make-believe with facts that revolve around milestone events that Luria wants this generation to embrace. “When I was 26, I had a goal that I wanted to write a book,” said Luria, who played baseball and football at Cornell University. “But I didn’t know anything about it.” He possessed a journalistic flair, a strong imagination and the patience of Job. While climbing California’s TV news ladder in Eureka, Santa Maria and Sacramento — and a stint in Tampa — he landed in America’s Finest City with America’s longest case of writer’s block. Actually, once Luria started typing, he raced around the keyboard like the Padres’ Fernando Tatis Jr., going from first to third. “It was 1,000 pages long,” Luria said. Like a good quarterback leaning on a strong running game, Luria required a keen editor to complement his exuberance. The book went
from the heft of “War and Peace” to something more manageable for adults and kids. “We got it down to six events and we will use the other 10 in a future book,” Luria said. The characters, many of whom are named after Luria’s childhood pets and places he lived in the Washington, D.C., area, are engaging and curious. Those crowning Luria, 41, as an overnight success must acknowledge reality. “I started this before we had kids and it’s crazy that the oldest is now 12,” Luria said. Luria’s love of sports hails from his father, Jon, who was active and attended the University of North Carolina. Nothing was finer for the younger Luria than watching sports reports delivered by George Michael or reading Tony Kornheiser in the Washington Post. Plus, his uncle, Steve Buckhantz, was the voice of the Washington Wizards for 22 years. “In the eighth grade I knew broadcasting was something that I wanted to do,” Luria said. Luria was a baseball player, first, until his body revolted. While in a Santa Barbara semipro league, with future Padres pitcher James Shields as a teammate, Luria turned his interests toward the microphone. His resume now reveals him as a veteran newscaster and a rookie author. “My hope is for my kids to consume it, that they will like it and share it with their friends,” Luria said. “That way they can learn about Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Mary Lou Retton and sports history.” Luria’s passion burns for the Baltimore Orioles and Washington’s NFL team, a squad that reached three Super Bowls during Luria’s youth thanks to rosters constructed by Bobby Beathard, the former Chargers general manager and Leucadia resident. Luria’s favorite athlete? Baltimore’s Cal Ripken Jr., who played in a record 2,632 games over 16 years, which is just two years longer than it took publish “Charlie Marley.” Luria’s book went from a dream to his doorstep, the mark of someone like Ripken, who’s not shy about persevering. “That is insane,” Luria said. “That’s why it is so exciting to finally see it in print.” Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com.

JAN FRODENO of Germany comes in first place in the men’s professional race of the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 in Oceanside, which normally hosts seven endurance events in a given year.

A push for endurance sports By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — Leaders in California’s endurance sports industry hope to gain approval from state officials regarding safe return guidelines they have created to allow events like the O’side Turkey Trot and IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside to return. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, mass gatherings are still prohibited in the state. Such restrictions include thousands of endurance sport events held annually statewide. According to the California Coalition for Endurance Sports, the state has more than 8,000 annual endurance sporting events ranging from local fundraiser walks to international triathlon competitions. These events attract more than 2.5 million participants each year and raise more than $70 million in charity fundraising. Unlike most other states, California does not have guidelines in place for safely reopening endurance events. The Coalition has created safe return guidelines that leaders hope state officials will approve so that these thousands of events can resume. “I really believe you can have an endurance sports event that is safer than going to the grocery store,” said Paul Huddle, senior regional director for the IRONMAN Group, which hosts Ironman 70.3 Oceanside. The problem lies with the fact that the endurance sports industry doesn’t have its own set of guidelines separate from other mass gathering industries like live concerts and arena games.
“There are guidelines for other industries but no guidelines for our industry,” said Mike Bone, President of Spectrum Sports Management, which hosts the annual Bike the Coast marathon. Endurance sports events are different than live concerts and festivals, Huddle said. For example, running, cycling, triathlons, swimming and surfing events have very few high-touch points. They also happen outdoors, and participants are constantly moving. “They’re by nature socially distant,” Huddle said. Rather than wait for state officials to create guidelines for endurance sports, the Coalition took matters into its own hands. Using parameters that have worked for events in other states as well as the Center for Disease Control guidelines, the Coalition developed a COVID mitigation plan for endurance events to follow. “I think our industry and all its players have figured out some great safety protocols,” Bone said. In the past, participants could arrive whenever they wanted. That could mean hundreds of people showing up at once, which would present a problem in today’s COVID-19 restricted world. “Now, you have to schedule a time for a safe amount of participants to arrive,” Huddle said. This new registration process is not only safer, but it is also more convenient. “Participants love being able to show up and not have to stand in line to
wait,” Huddle said. Other race-day practices that have been modified include staggered starts, pre-packaged food at the finish line without festivals, aid stations to emphasize social distancing and mandatory face covering when not racing. Coalition members urge the state to quickly approve the guidelines they have created to save the state’s endurance sports in-

dustry as well as its tourism industry from further damage. Cities like Oceanside collect transient occupancy taxes (TOT) from tourists through hotel stays, which go into the city’s general fund. Oceanside has seven endurance sporting events, which represent more than $12 million in direct visitor spending. IRONMAN 70.3 alone generates more than $3 million.
Endurance sports events also generate quite a lot of money for the city in other ways. According to Leslee Gaul, CEO and President of Visit Oceanside, approximately 74% of visitor spending is on other sectors than lodging. Of that amount, dining receives the most with 29% of visitor spending going to restaurants. Bone said the industry can’t afford to wait much longer for the state to approve guidelines because of how long it takes to plan endurance sporting events. If guidelines don’t get approved soon, Coalition members fear all 2021 events will be compromised. They also worry that California will lose its endurance sporting events to other states in the process. “We want and need something now,” Bone said. “We can’t wait until the numbers come down to get the guidelines.” “If we don’t have guidelines now, we won’t have opportunities to host endurance sporting events when the time is right,” Gaul added. To help the industry’s cause, Visit Oceanside has partnered with InjureFree, a COVID monitoring app that is available to city events for simple health screening and contract tracing of all participants, volunteers and staff. The system can be used with the existing registration platforms for endurance events. Bone, Huddle and Gaul encourage residents to contact their state legislators to emphasize the need for safe return guidelines for the endurance sports industry.

Dyslexia cure found!
Patent pending, parents & students stoked Up until now, students with Dyslexia have had to live with their reading disability. This is no longer true. A Carlsbad eye doctor has discovered a new treatment for Dyslexia that works faster and more efficiently than anything else out there. The treatment is so unique that a patent is pending on the process. Unlike most treatments for Dyslexia and other reading disabilities, Dr. David Bloch’s Reading Without Limits program has been helping students improve their reading skills in a matter of a few months rather than over the course of several years. Traditionally, when we learn to read, we are asked to sound out words that we don’t know. Most treatments for Dyslexia continue to use this phonics based approach, but Dr. Bloch says that isn’t the right solution. People with Dyslexia actually have a disconnect between their auditory and visual processing systems. “They don’t need help with sounds,” Dr. Bloch said. “They know the sounds, they just don’t see words correctly.” Those with Dyslexia see words jumbled, reversed or transposed, causing confusion and poor reading comprehension.

Dr. Bloch’s method doesn’t ask students to sound words out. Believe it or not, it also doesn’t use phonics, sight reading, picture books or verbal cues. “Most people say this is impossible until they see me demonstrate it,” Dr. Bloch said. Dr. Bloch uses a series of drills to reprogram a reader’s visual and cognitive processing. It works much like reloading software into a computer, so he refers to it as “a brain reboot.” Unfortunately, many people with Dyslexia fail to find the right program to improve their reading skills. They will spend years struggling to read
proficiently. But with Dr. Bloch’s new treatment, they could be reading several grade levels ahead of where they were in just months. Erin McGough, a teacher in the region with a Masters in Reading and Language Arts, first found out about the program on Facebook. Her child was diagnosed with Dyslexia and struggles with reading. Though her child is making progress through extra support from the school, it wasn’t enough. McGough needed to find more to help improve her child’s reading skills. At first skeptical about the program, McGough is now quite impressed with how well it works. She ex-
plained that Dr. Bloch picks apart words and associates those word pieces with other words students already know. “His technique is something that I have never seen before,” McGough said. Jen Lopez, a special education teacher in the region, has noticed an improvement in her daughter’s reading abilities after recently starting the program. Though her daughter isn’t diagnosed with Dyslexia, she tends to read slower and often backtrack and re-read words. Since starting the program, Lopez has seen significant improvement in her daughter’s word recognition abilities. “It’s really interesting to see how he approaches breaking down the words and decoding them,” Lopez said. Lopez added that she thinks Dr. Bloch’s Reading Without Limits program is “a more effective approach than what we’re using in the school system.” Get more information by visiting readingwithoutlimits.com or schedule an evaluation by calling 760730-3711. Dr. Bloch’s office is located at 2814 Roosevelt St. Suite B, Carlsbad, CA. 92008.
Drive-up event to collect necessities for seniors San Diego County’s stay-at-home orders have created a challenge for North County seniors and their family caregivers when it comes to shopping for basic necessities. That’s why the team at the nonprofit Gary and Mary West PACE is encouraging San Diego County businesses, community groups, and individuals to donate new and unused toiletries, games, puzzles, socks, masks, and other care items to the first-ever “Everyday Necessities Drive for North County Seniors.” Organizers are hosting a drive-up collection event on Tuesday, Dec. 22 from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the West PACE Center located at 1706 Descanso Avenue in San Marcos. All donors who drive-in to drop-off items at West PACE will receive a coffee and a holiday treat. “Seniors often make difficult decisions between buying food or personal care items,” says Rena Smith, executive director, West PACE. “Since Southern California is in a stayat-home order and there is a significantly reduced capacity at retail stores, it will be difficult for seniors and family caregivers to shop for the essentials, items that we take for granted ev-

eryday.” At the Tuesday, Dec. 22 drive-thru collection event, North County residents can make a difference without even leaving their car. Organizers have a goal to collect hundreds of items to create 200 bundles to gift to vulnerable North County seniors with chronic care needs who rely on West PACE for high-quality, comprehensive, and coordinated healthcare, social services which help them successfully age in place rather than in a nursing home. Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE, is a model of person-centered care that has been shown to reduce rates of emergency room visits, unnecessary hospital ad-
missions, long-term nursing home placements, and reduce the cost of care and the strain on family caregivers. Over 90% of PACE participants are able to successfully remain in their homes and communities, many live longer, are more socially engaged and have a better quality of life than those in nursing homes or other institutional settings. Local companies and groups have already come on board to support the inaugural Everyday Necessities Drive for North County Seniors hosted by nonprofit West PACE: San Diego North Economic Development Council, West Health, Devore Realty Group, and Qualicare San Diego. Orga-
nizers have also set up a GoFundMe page to collect financial donations for those in the community who are not able to make it to the West PACE center but are interested in supporting the holiday drive efforts. Donations are accepted through Dec. 31, 2020. Event organizers will observe COVID-safe protocols and social distancing. Participants are asked to wear a face covering when dropping off donations.

Thanks to quarantine measures keeping more of us at home, many have decided to add a new pet to their family or to foster an animal. As a result, animal shelters are adapting to meet the needs of the animals, and those who want to add a four-legged friend to their family. Adopting a pet from a shelter can be a wonderful experience — one that helps to save the life of an animal in need. But during this time of social distancing, it's more important than ever to teach children about responsible pet ownership, so your furry friend can stay happy and healthy once you’re heading back to work and school again. Here are a few tips to ensure that welcoming a new animal into your home goes smoothly.

CITY OF CARLSBAD ORDINANCE NO. CS-387 AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, AMENDING CARLSBAD MUNICIPAL CODE TITLE 5, WITH THE ADDITION OF CHAPTER 5.70, HOTEL EMPLOYEE RECALL RIGHTS WHEREAS, on January 31, 2020, United States Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II declared a Public Health Emergency for the United States, effective January 27, 2020, in response to COVID-19, a disease caused by a novel coronavirus, SARSCoV-2; and WHEREAS, on February 14, 2020, the San Diego County Public Health Officer determined there was an imminent and proximate threat to the public health from the introduction of COVID-19 in San Diego County and declared a Local Health Emergency, which the San Diego County Board of Supervisors ratified on February 19, 2020; and WHEREAS, on March 4, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed a State of Emergency to exist in California because of the threat of COVID-19; and WHEREAS, on March 12, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-25-20, which ordered all residents to heed any orders or guidance of state and public health officials, including the imposition of social distancing measures, to control the spread of COVID-19; and WHEREAS, on March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared a national emergency because of COVID-19; and WHEREAS, on March 16, 2020, the City of Carlsbad’s City Manager, in his role as Director of Emergency Services, proclaimed the existence of a local emergency related to COVID-19, which the City Council ratified on March 17, 2020; and WHEREAS, since that time, the Governor and state and county public health officials have issued various directives and guidance to state and local residents, including stay-at-home directives and restrictions on certain business activities; and WHEREAS, the various directives and guidance have resulted in decreased travel and tourism in the City of Carlsbad, preventing local hotel businesses from operating at normal capacity and causing the businesses to discharge, layoff and furlough employees; and WHEREAS, an Oct. 15, 2020, a report by the San Diego Association of Governments on “COVID-19 Impacts on the San Diego Regional Economy” found the Tourism sector was the hardest hit employment sector, representing 37% of the jobs lost and 30%, or $1.4 billion, of the wages lost in 2020; and WHEREAS, a November 2020 report by the San Diego North Economic Development Council on “COVID-19 Impacts on the 78 Corridor” found the five cities along the State Route 78 corridor lost more than 36,000 jobs in the past year, with hotels, restaurants and other hospitality industries being the hardest hit with 11,757 jobs lost; and WHEREAS, on Dec. 3, 2020, the acting state public health director issued a Regional Stay at Home Order effective Dec. 5, 2020, which provides that, if a region’s hospital intensive care unit (ICU) capacity falls below 15%: “Except as otherwise required by law, no hotel or lodging entity in California shall accept or honor out of state reservations for non-essential travel, unless the reservation is for at least the minimum time period required for quarantine and the persons identified in the reservation will quarantine in the hotel or lodging entity until after that time period has expired”; and WHEREAS, the Southern California region’s hospital ICU capacity is expected to reach this threshold in early December at which time the Regional Stay at Home Order will apply to the region for at least three weeks and continue to apply until hospital ICU capacity projected four weeks out reaches 15%; and WHEREAS, because of the Regional Stay at Home Order and ongoing COVID-19 economic impacts, many more local hotel employees are expected to face separation from their jobs in the coming days, weeks, and months; and WHEREAS, a Nov. 6, 2020 report on “Unemployed with Jobs and without Jobs” by Robert E. Hall of the Hoover Institution and the Stanford University Department of Economics and Marianna Kudlyak of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco found unemployment levels of employees subject to recall return to normal as soon as economic conditions improve while unemployment levels of employees not subject to recall tend to persist, with the employees cycling through short-term jobs, spells of unemployment, and spells out of the labor force before finding stable, but often lower-paying, jobs; and WHEREAS, the Hall and Kudlyak report also noted a quick post-shutdown recovery is dependent upon laid-off employees being able to return to work without going through the normal hiring market; and WHEREAS, Section 100 of the Charter of the City of Carlsbad affirms the city has the full power and authority to adopt, make, exercise and enforce all legislation, laws and regulations with respect to municipal affairs, subject only to the limitations and restrictions as may be provided in the Charter, in the Constitution of the State of California, and in the laws of the United States; and WHEREAS, Article XI, Section 7 of the California Constitution further authorizes the city to make and enforce within its limits all local, police, sanitary, and other ordinances and regulations not in conflict with general laws; and WHEREAS, California Government Code Section 36937, subdivision (b), allows the city to adopt an urgency ordinance that takes effect immediately when the ordinance is for the immediate preservation of public peace, health or safety; and WHEREAS, to ensure fair employment practices in the local hotel industry during the economic upheaval from the COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure unemployment levels in the local hotel industry return to normal as soon as economic conditions improve, and to aid in a quick post-shutdown recovery for the local economy, the City Council has determined it is necessary for the public peace, health and safety to immediately provide local hotel employees with an assurance that they will be able to return to their former employment once the pandemic recedes and business returns to the local hotel industry. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of Carlsbad, California, ordains that: 1. The above recitations are true and correct. 2. Carlsbad Municipal Code Title 5 is amended by adding Chapter 5.70 to read as follows: Chapter 5.70
HOTEL EMPLOYEE RECALL RIGHTS Sections: 5.70.010 Purpose. 5.70.020 Definitions. 5.70.030 Right of recall. 5.70.040 Notification of rights. 5.70.050 Recordkeeping. 5.70.060 Enforcement. 5.70.070 Exemption for collective bargaining agreement. 5.70.080 No waiver of rights. 5.70.090 Retaliatory action prohibited. 5.70.100 No limits on other rights or conflicts with federal or state law. 5.70.110 Expiration and report. 5.70.120 Severability. 5.70.010 Purpose. The COVID-19 pandemic and related federal, state and county public health orders have caused many employees working in the City of Carlsbad to face significant job and economic insecurity. Local hotel employees have been especially impacted by layoffs during the COVID-19 pandemic because travel has been severely halted and local hotel employers cannot easily adjust to the resulting lack of patronage. The purpose of this chapter is to ensure fair employment practices in connection with the recall of employees subjected to pandemic-related layoffs in the local hotel industry and to aid the local economy in recovering from the pandemic’s adverse effects. 5.70.020 Definitions. The following definitions apply in interpreting and enforcing this chapter: “Employee” means an individual who performs at least ten hours of work in a particular week for the employer, is not an independent contractor, and is not a supervisor within the meaning of the National Labor Relations Act (see 29 U.S.C. § 152(11)). “Employer” means a person who owns or operates a hotel and employs or exercises control over the wages, hours, or working conditions of an employee. “Hotel” means an establishment within the geographic boundaries of the City of Carlsbad with at least 200 guest rooms that provides accommodations and other services for travelers and tourists. The number of guest rooms shall be determined based on the hotel’s room count on its opening day, or on December 31, 2019, whichever is greater. “Laid-off employee” means an employee who was employed by a hotel employer for 6 months or more at the same hotel site in the 12 months preceding March 4, 2020, and whose most recent separation from active service with the employer was due to a public health directive, government shutdown order, lack of business, reduction in force, or other non-disciplinary economic reason related to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a rebuttable presumption that a laidoff employee’s separation from active service with the employer on or after March 4, 2020, was due to a non-disciplinary economic reason. “Length of service” means the total of all periods of time during which an employee has been in active service to an employer, including periods of time when the employee was on leave or vacation. “Person” means an individual, corporation, partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, limited liability company, business trust, estate, trust, association, joint venture, agency, instrumentality, or any other legal or commercial entity, whether domestic or foreign. 5.70.030 Right of recall. A. An employer shall offer a laid-off employee in a writing sent to the employee’s last known mailing address, and to the employee’s last known email address and text message phone number if the employer possesses this information, all positions available after the effective date of this chapter for which the laid-off employee is qualified. A laid-off employee is qualified for a position if the employee either: 1. Held the same or similar position at the same employment site at the time of the employee’s most recent separation from active service with the employer; or 2. Is or can be qualified for the position with the same training that would be provided to a new employee hired into the position. The employer shall offer available positions to a laid-off employee in an order of preference corresponding to preceding paragraphs (A)(1) and (A)(2). An employer may make simultaneous, conditional offers of employment to a laid-off employee, with the final offer of employment conditioned on the application of the priority system in preceding paragraphs (A)(1) and (A)(2). If more than one laid-off employee is entitled to preference for a position, the employer shall offer the position to the laid-off employee with the greatest length of service with the employer in the available position at the employment site. B. An employer is not required to offer available positions to a laid-off employee under this chapter if either: 1. After the employee’s most recent separation from active service, the employer learned the employee engaged in an act of dishonesty, violation of law, violation of policy or rule, or other misconduct that would have resulted in the employee’s disciplinary separation from employment had the employer known about the misconduct before the employee’s most recent separation from active service; or 2. The employer separated the employee after March 4, 2020, and before the effective date of this chapter and the employer and employee executed a severance agreement in which the employee agreed to a general release of claims against the employer. C. A laid-off employee who is offered a position pursuant to this chapter shall have 3 business days from receipt of the offer, but not more than 5 business days from the sending of the offer, to accept or decline the offer. D. The provisions of this chapter also apply when the ownership of the employer changes due to a sale, assignment, transfer or other disposition of substantially all assets of the employer occurring after March 4, 2020, provided the employer conducts the same or similar operation as before March 4, 2020. 5.70.040 Notification of rights. A. A hotel employer must provide laid-off employees with written notice of their rights under this chapter. For a layoff that occurs after the effective date of this chapter, the notice must be provided at the time of the layoff. For a layoff that occurred before
the effective date of this chapter, the notice must be provided within 30 days of the effective date of this chapter and must be sent to the laid-off employee’s last known mailing address, and to the employee’s last known email address if the employer possesses this information. B. Laid-off employees who have not been selected for recall must be provided with written notice of their non-selection by the hotel employer within 30 days of the date of their non-selection documenting the reasons for their non-selection. 5.07.050 Recordkeeping. A hotel employer must retain the following records for each laid-off employee for at least 3 years following the laid-off employee’s separation from employment: the employee’s full legal name, the employee’s job title/classification at the time of separation from employment, the employee’s date of hire, the employee’s last known mailing address, the employee’s last known email address, the employee’s last known telephone number, and a copy of the notice required by Section 5.07.040. 5.70.060 Enforcement. A. A laid-off employee may enforce this chapter by bringing a civil action in state court in the County of San Diego. Before filing the civil action, the laid-off employee must, within 30 calendar days of the date the employee knows or should have known of a violation of this chapter, provide the employer with: 1. Written notice of the provisions of this chapter that the employer is believed to have violated and the facts supporting the violation; and 2. At least 15 business days from receipt of the written notice to cure the violation. B. If the laid-off employee prevails in the civil action, the court may award the laid-off employee: 1. Hiring and reinstatement rights pursuant to this chapter. 2. Actual damages (including lost pay and benefits) suffered by the laid-off employee, or statutory damages in the sum of $1,000, whichever is greater. 3. Punitive damages under California Civil Code Section 3294 in an amount not to exceed twice the amount of the employee’s actual damages for each violation where the conditions of California Civil Code Section 3294(b) are satisfied and clear and convincing evidence establishes the employer is guilty of fraud, oppression or malice with respect to the violation. 4. Reasonable attorney fees and costs, including expert witness fees. C. If the employer prevails in the civil action, the court may award the employer reasonable attorney fees and costs if the court finds the action was frivolous, unreasonable, or groundless when brought, or the laid-off employee continued to litigate after the action clearly became so. D. Notwithstanding any provision of this code, no criminal penalties may be imposed for a violation of this chapter. 5.70.070 Waiver by collective bargaining agreement. The provisions of this chapter may be waived by the collective bargaining agreement if the waiver is explicitly set forth in the agreement or an amendment in clear and unambiguous terms. Unilateral implementation of terms and conditions of employment by either party to a collective bargaining relationship shall not constitute a permissible waiver of any provisions of this chapter. 5.70.080 No waiver of rights. Except for a collective bargaining agreement provision made pursuant to Section 5.70.070, a waiver by an employee of any provisions of this chapter is contrary to public policy and is void and unenforceable. Other than in connection with the bona fide negotiation of a collective bargaining agreement or amendment, any request by an employer to an employee to waive rights provided by this chapter is a violation of this chapter. 5.70.090 Retaliatory action prohibited. No hotel employer shall refuse to employ, discharge, reduce in compensation, or otherwise take any adverse action against an employee for lawfully opposing any practice proscribed by this chapter, participating in proceedings related to this chapter, or asserting rights under this chapter. This section shall also apply to an employee who mistakenly, but in good faith, alleges noncompliance with this chapter. 5.70.100 No limits on other rights or conflicts with federal or state law. A. This chapter does not limit the rights and remedies otherwise available to laid-off employees, including the rights to be free from wrongful termination or unlawful discrimination. B. Nothing in this chapter shall be interpreted or applied to create a right, power, or duty in conflict with federal or state law. The term “conflict” as used in this section means a provision that is preempted under federal or state law. 5.70.110 Expiration and report. The chapter shall remain in effect for 12 months from the date of enactment and is repealed as of that date unless extended by further action of the city council. At least two months prior to the anticipated repeal date, the city manager shall provide the city council with a report discussing the effectiveness of the provisions of this chapter in stabilizing covered employees’ employment, recommendations for additional protections that further the intent of this chapter, and whether the provisions of the chapter are still necessary based on the city’s recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 5.70.120 Severability. The provisions of this chapter are severable, and the invalidity of any phrase, clause or part of this chapter shall not affect the validity or effectiveness of the remainder of the chapter. EFFECTIVE DATE: This ordinance shall be effective immediately upon passage and shall be of no further force and effect as of the date of adoption of the Carlsbad Municipal Code Chapter 5.70, Hotel Employee Recall Rights During Covid-19 Pandemic ordinance. The City Clerk shall certify the adoption of this ordinance and cause it to be published at least once in a newspaper of general circulation in the City of Carlsbad within fifteen days after its adoption.

SACRAMENTO — State Sen. Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) announced that she has co-authored bipartisan legislation this week to protect Californians applying for unemployment benefits from identity theft. Senate Bill 58 would require the Employment Development Department (EDD) to end immediately the practice of including full Social Security numbers on its most frequently mailed documents. Senators Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) and Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger) formally introduced SB 58 and is co-authored by Sens. Bates, Anna Cabal-
lero (D-Salinas Valley), and Assemblymembers Suzette Valladares (R-Santa Clarita) and Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale). “With unemployment-related scams proliferating throughout California, there is no excuse for the EDD to continue to include full Social Security numbers on unsecured mail,” Bates said. “That is why I have co-authored legislation to immediately require EDD to protect the personal information of Californians applying for unemployment benefits. “The last thing the unemployed need to worry about is having their identity stolen by criminals.” Last month, a group
of California district attorneys sounded the alarm on the extent of the fraud and unemployment scams at EDD, stating it could be “the most significant fraud on the taxpayers in California’s history.” The federal government warned Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration in the spring that the dysfunction at EDD put it at high risk for fraud, yet the department continued to include Social Security numbers on correspondence. Newsom signed AB 499 (Mayes) on Sept. 25 that prohibits state agencies such as the EDD from sending any communication to any person that contains
that person’s full Social Security number, unless required by federal law. However, the mandate does not take effect until Jan. 1, 2023. Last month, district attorneys announced a major fraud scheme operating in and around California’s prisons, estimating at least $140 million being paid to inmates and their accomplices so far. And earlier this month, Bank of America announced that fraud in California’s unemployment benefits system could total $2 billion. Bates represents the 36th Senate District, which includes much of North County.

Cyclist’s death inspires local activism By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — A bicycle adorned with colorful flowers and candles has memorialized the life of Dr. Jennings Worley, who was killed on November 28 in a fatal traffic collision while riding his bike along Leucadia Blvd. Worley, an avid cyclist, was also a leading scientist in the fight to cure cystic fibrosis. In 2004, Worley and his family moved to San Diego to join Vertex Pharmaceuticals where he dedicated the last 16 years of his life, according to his obituary. Worley also helped develop several bio-engineering patents. On Sunday, Dec. 6, Worley’s family and friends gathered for a community blessing with members of the local cycling community, tethering a bike to a street sign at the intersection of Leucadia Blvd. and Moonstone Court. According to Worley’s obituary, his loved ones remembered “every decision in his life, small or large, was fueled by his intense devotion and passion for all things he loved,” inspiring a lifelong career in medical research, culminating in a team responsible for breakthrough medications treating cystic fibrosis. His untimely death has reignited impassioned conversations about bike safety, prompting the local cycling community to reevaluate safety measures within the city of Encinitas. “We’ve seen an outpouring of deep concern and love from the community,” remarked attendee Elena Thompson, a friend of the Worley family and member of Encinitas Bike Walk. “The event was about healing… and now we move forward with practical, actionable solutions.” As a bike and pedestrian safe mobility activist, Thompson and others continue to lobby the Encinitas City Council to enact infra-

structure projects providing safe bike lanes. “Jennings was a scientist looking for solutions to worldwide diseases,” Thompson said. “He would
want solutions to these public safety issues in our city that are not being addressed.” Thompson addressed the City Council on Dec.
9, requesting council members enact a “new and revised game plan” by utilizing resources to improve the city’s biking infrastructure. “We’re North America’s cycling capital with our incredible climate and we have a mobility-driven City Council. Why can’t we do better? Why can’t we get this right?” Thompson said to the Coast News. “The death of our friend has inspired us to bolster our activism and
urge the city to finally hire a true mobility, active transportation expert on the city staff so the city council can put their money where their mouth is and achieve their noteworthy and critical strategy and goals of mobility and modeshift,” Thompson said. According to Thompson, the long-awaited Streetscape Project, which features traffic calming measures such as roundabouts and improved accessibility, is a much-welcomed improvement along Coast Highway 101 in Leucadia, however, it is not a sufficient final solution. The City of Encinitas has made moves to improve bike safety, installing a protected bike lane along Coast Highway 101 in May of 2020, however, the lanes have sparked controversy and divergent opinions among residents. Serge Issakov, a board member of both the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition and San Diego Mobility Board, also attended the Nov. 6 community blessing and sees forthcoming improvements as challenging, yet achievable. Issakov believes it is difficult to compile complete and accurate data on bike crashes as many times, individuals choose to not report the accident to the police. While this leaves room for disagreements and personal biases, in general, Issakov believes most people want the same thing. “Everyone seems to want to get more people bicycling safely,” Issakov said. “The question is how do we actually accomplish this and convey that to others?” For those wishing to send condolences or donations, Dr. Worley’s family has requested any donations to be sent to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in his name at https://give.cff. org/tribute /JenningsWorley.

Hanging on to the past
might have spiders in my hair. That should bother far more than it does, because if I did snag some visitors in my hair, it’s from hanging Christmas lights. Thirty years ago, my doting father hung our first holiday lights on our thennew house. Because he was wonderful, he also carefully put bent nails all along our roof overhang. From then on, hanging the lights was a breeze. I rejoiced in this every year, because Christmas, every stitch of it, falls to me. My husband is nonchalant as to whether holiday things happen or not, so if I wanted Christmas lights up, I had to hang them. Because my dad had to hang them for me that first year, I think he knew I’d be grateful for anything that made it all a bit simpler. However, this year I got to stick my head up among the spider webs twice. I didn’t realize when we got our new roof in August, they had to replace the wood that held the nails. I got a little teary-eyed when I realized my daddy’s handiwork was gone. It was always a happy memory of his love. Then I grabbed a hammer and got busy whacking in new nails. I am still a bit amazed I managed it without a seriously damaged finger or two. Halfway through the nail replacement exercise, I did find some of the original nails were still intact. That may be my best Christmas gift of the season. But, even after my flurTURN TO SMALL TALK ON B5

Carlsbad musician drops new album By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Building on the success of his last album, Carlsbad musician L.A. Edwards just released his second record with the legendary California rock and roll sound. Released on Dec. 4, “Blessings From Home Volume 1” puts Edwards alongside legendary musicians Ron Blair and Steve Ferrone of The Heartbreakers, more famously known as “Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.” In addition, Edwards enlisted produce Ryan Hadlock, who’s worked with Eric Clapton, the Lumineers and Vance Joy, to name a few. Recorded at the Bear Creek Studio outside Seattle in January, Edwards said his sophomore album showcases a more rock mindset versus his more singer-songwriter album, “True Blue.” “The sound is pretty straightforward California rock in the vein of George Harrison, Tom Petty, or the Wallflowers,” Edwards said. “We have more harmonies than those guys since we have the brother’s aspect, but still, most of the same ingredients in the soup. The lyrics are still plain spoken and honest as usual.” He released “True Blue” last year and kicked off his tour at the Belly Up in Solana Beach. However, due to the

COVID-19 pandemic, Edwards said he had to pivot as the concert industry has been on hold since April, when he and the group were pulled from the road in Vancouver, British Columbia. The pandemic also pushed back the release of “Blessings From Home Volume 1” by six months, he added. In the meantime, Edwards started a record label and looked at strategic and creative plans on how to reach and entertain fans, and learned more about recording, he said. Also, he’s had to adapt to the new way of connecting with fans in a virtual model. Ironically, Edwards said he’s more nervous for
the virtual performances than live ones. “I hosted some friends on a summer livestream concert series,” he explained. “We’ve done livestreams, pay per views, Zoom calls, FaceTime’s, you name it.” As for Blair, Ferrone and Hadlock, Edwards said it was a joy to work with such talented musicians and learn from an acclaimed producer. He said Blair and Ferrone have not only added so much to the sound for “The Heartbreakers,” but for this record as well. Hopefully, Edwards continued, the fans will “appreciate one of the best rhythm sections in the world.” As for Hadlock, Edwards said he is efficient, creative and always looking to serve the song. Hadlock’s studio has such a special vibe and understood what Edwards’ was going for, keeping the band on track while also adding some new ideas. “I dig how we captured the band sound that we had been working on out on the road for the past few years and how it’s still song-based but with more of a rock/ groove leaning than our previous records,” Edwards said.

During the darkest time of year, before the light shifts on the winter solstice, The Coast News Group is committed to empowering the community to stay hopeful during these times of great change. We have teamed up with Encinitas locals, Matt Cole and Betsy Finkelhoo to bring to you a 7-issue interactive experience to inspire positivity, intention setting and a practice to encourage truly believing in the miracles of life. “

You are invited to fill this out, cut it out and hang it up somewhere where you can read your words of empowerment, joy and possibility! This week’s theme is on welcoming more light. As we enter into the winter solstice, on December 21st, even though it may seem dark, we are actually gaining more and more light every day, so we invite you to use this as a metaphor for your own life as you reflect on and finish these sentences.

Post-vaccine, travel likely to change
he big news last week (and maybe for a while to come) is that there are vaccines for COVID-19 and that one is coming to a clinic/doctor’s office/drugstore near you. It may be a few months before a vaccine is readily available to those of us who aren’t front-line medical or essential workers, residents of nursing homes, or persons at high risk for complications of the virus. But for those who love to travel, the news of the vaccines offers hope, light at the end of the we-can’tgo-anywhere tunnel, and a cautious optimism that one day we’ll be able to pack a suitcase and really go somewhere. The arrival of a vaccine also means that the travel industry is attempting to predict where consumers will go and what they will want to do once freedom of movement is restored. In recent weeks, my emailbox has been filled with missives with subject lines such as “Discover the Magic of Alaska on a Future Trip,” “How to Get the Most Out of a Future Visit to Texas,” and “Inspiration for Your Future Food-Focused Expeditions.” “Future” seems to be the operative word here …
hit the road e’louise ondash and now the future is almost here. And as we wait, we are seeing a new vocabulary around traveling emerge. One term that has popped up frequently is “doorstep travel.” This refers to traveling via RVs or other self-contained camping vehicles – that is, taking your home with you. Many see this as the safest way to go because it eliminates the need for a hotel room and some of the worry about contamination. In truth, hotels probably are cleaner than they’ve ever been, but if travelers feel more comfortable in their RV bubble, then they should go for it. When it comes to cruising, going small is fast becoming a favorite option. Many cruisers are forgoing the so-called “floating cities” – ginormous ships that carry several thousand passengers and crew – and choosing instead riverboats that carry less than 200. This mode of transportation and sightseeing was experiencing a surge in pop-
ularity even before the appearance of COVID-19 shut down European tourism, but now it seems even more likely that an increased number of riverboats will be cruising the Rhone, Rhine, Danube, Seine and other rivers. “Even when most of us are vaccinated, the desire to avoid large crowds will likely remain,” predicts Adam York of Sublime Public Relations in Missoula, Montana, which promotes vacations in less-traveled locals like the luxury resort Red Reflet Ranch near Ten Sleep, Wyoming. York spoke with travel-trends experts who told him that “… with many families unable to see their relatives during COVID, (we should also) expect a surge in 2021 in multi-generational travel.” This pandemic has also given rise to the socially distanced vacation. Travelers have turned to searching for remote destinations and experiences, like hiking and camping in crowd-free national parks. Some that have seen more visitors than usual but still are mostly overlooked include Shenandoah (Virginia); Black Canyon of the Gunnison (Colorado); Capitol Reef (Utah); Lassen TURN TO HIT THE ROAD ON B5

Kundalini studio comes to Oceanside
on fire Susan Sullivan
ith the dawning of the Age of Aquarius comes a higher frequency recently measured on the planet. The earth's magnetic field has a set of resonant frequencies that scientists theorize could affect human behavior. Kundalini is the latent cosmic energy inherent in every living being. The Prana, the life-force, and the primal power within that can be equated with electricity. As we ascend on the path toward enlightenment, this ancient practice will undoubtedly come across the seeker’s path of awareness. Just as a radio station needs a frequency to pick up a channel, students of Kundalini can choose to tune into a positive higher frequency that leads to health and healing. Kundalini practice harnessed with the body's energy and consciously used with knowledge of earth and planetary occurrences, like the upcoming and not to be missed Great Convergence on the Solstice, can be powerful and heady stuff. Tapping into that energy through mudras and breathwork and gentle postures that enhance the rise of vitality in the body creates a positive lifestyle. CommuniTea in Oceanside offers the resources to help you “allow the radiance of your soul to shine in every facet of life.” Tina Fitzgerald, the unique studio owner, offers

various classes and workshops on this life force energy that lays dormant at the spine’s base. With a series of movements and breathing techniques to bring about a “Kundalini Awakening,” energies rise from the base of the spine upward through the Chakras. A euphoric feeling and power or primal force begins to develop and can occur in the practitioner. One realizes and becomes aware that we are all one energy. This former international businesswoman was strung out on overworking and fast-paced travel through time zones with her hustle until her whole adrenal system broke down. She became very physically and mentally ill. It became apparent that if she didn't change something drastically, life would not be worth living.
Aligning with ancient healing practices and immersing herself entirely to her inner callings, slowly, her awakening began to occur. Her physical and mental healing began as her Kundalini practice deepened. Intensifying her study meant delving into the mystic. She became inspired by a spiritual teacher on the path who encouraged her to “get high on her own supply” of energy sleeping in her. She went all in. Abandoning her high-profile job, she visited India, trekking the Himalayas, visiting Tibetian monasteries, and studying the art of the practice by gurus proficient in this ancient modality. She has brought this consciousness level to Oceanside, and it is a real gift. “There seemed to be a void between Orange Coun-
ty and Encinitas for Kundalini practice. I felt a vortex as well as a calling to open a healing center and studio with a tea shop in my hometown,” said Fitzgerald. Many well-known and revolutionary masters and modern-day gurus on the Kundalini circuit have visited and approved the Vista Way site, where CommuniTea commands a corner on a well-traveled boulevard. A unique type of yoga therapy developed at CommuniTea and has been dubbed "Kundinyasana" by Fitzgerald or Ardas Taran, her spiritual name. It combines Kundalini with Hatha Vinyasinas. “It’s not that kind of yoga” is a tag line used to help the newcomer understand that what is needed to attend these types of offerings is not expensive leggings and the ability to pretzel oneself upside down. If you are looking to find inner peace and calm, dynamically connect with your body, and come out feeling...well, enlightened, check out the vast array of classes and workshops at www.communiteayoga.com. I know I have only scratched the surface as there is so much more to learn. I do know this. You have a treasure within that holds the elements of happiness, fulfillment, acceptance, and love. You are a Soul on Fire, and once you know the pure bliss of your Being through this practice, all external happiness becomes meaningless. After the year we have had, some Kundalini can help us gather the needed energy to move toward what’s next. “Healing happens here” is the slogan of Communitea. Sounds like a great place to start. Happy holidays! May your Christmas be bright.

Fieri raises $21.5M in COVID-19 relief; Wine Spectator Top 10 taste of wine frank mangio
suspect that many of our readers have had a chance to see one of the food industry’s most loved chefs, Guy Fieri. Perhaps some recall his famous saying, “Welcome to Flavortown,” from his Food Network show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” A few weeks ago, I had a tweet pop up talking about how Fieri is assisting the restaurant industry. With this info in hand, I reached out to Senior Editor Frank and he said, “Rico, roll with it,” and so here we are. Fieri started his love affair with food at 10 years old selling soft pretzels from a bike cart that he built. Along with washing dishes for six years, Fieri earned enough “dough” to study abroad in Chantilly, France, and then earn a Hospitality Management degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). After graduating, Guy returned home to Northern California to open his ini-

the restaurant industry. In March, he started the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, raising $21.5 million for unemployed restaurant workers. Fieri’s Fund has helped over 43,000 people in the restaurant industry with $500 grants. What an amazing effort using his star power to help the battered food industry. More info at rerf.us. Bravo Guy Fieri! When not fundraising, Fieri was busy putting together a new documentary, “Restaurant Hustle 2020: All on the Line.” Fieri said, “When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the impact on the restaurant industry was immediate. ‘Restaurant Hustle 2020: All on the Line’ provides a real and intimate first-hand look into the lives of four top restaurateurs navigating through it all.” Hopefully, the documentary provides awareness and additional contributions to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.

In 2006, Fieri —with his blond dyed hair, tattoos, charm, and culinary skills — won Food Network’s popular television competition show, “Next Food Network Star.” This grew his initial culinary career into becoming a worldwide restaurateur, New York Times best-selling author, and Emmy Award-winning TV host, as one of the world’s most recognizable culinary stars.

Shop local wine, brews with help of spreadsheet Cheers! North County
ou want to support your local breweries, beer bars, wineries, distilleries and ciders, but who is open? When are they open? Are they offering takeaway? What about delivery, or will they ship right to your door? Do they have any specials or are they paying it forward with pints for health care workers? If you’re focused on shopping local, shopping small right now, you’re not alone, but it can be difficult to keep track of all the changes due to COVID-19. Magie Brennan, a meadtender at Lost Cause Meadery, wanted to make it easier for us all. She
started the SD County Tasting Room Spreadsheet to answer all those questions and more. It has been shared widely in the service industry community and has become invaluable for those of us trying to keep our holiday spending local. I reached out to ask her more about it. Cheers!: What is this spreadsheet all about? Magie: The SD County Tasting Room Spreadsheet is a business-updated, public-facing resource for people to find out if their favorite brewery, winery, cidery, distillery or beer bar is open for service. It’ll show hours of operation for pickup, to-go, delivery or shipping availability, links for purchase and more. Before the lockdown it also showed whether they were open for indoor and/ or outdoor seating. It’s a living document that I try

to keep as updated as possible! Cheers!: What inspired you to build it and continue maintaining it? Magie: The beer community in San Diego — both those in the industry and customers alike — is very tight-knit, and I didn’t want it to see it crumble because of COVID. No one asked me to do this. I just wanted to give back. [Like] a lot of people, I got laid off from my full-time job in March. I also had left my previous brewery job right before the first shutdown happened. I wanted to be productive with my time and noticed that businesses aren’t always the best at keeping their customers updated on hours and availability. Understandably so. It was a stressful time. I just wanted to help in some way that
Magie Brennan didn’t require spending money. There wasn’t a onestop source for all this information. I started a post in a Facebook group dedicated to those who work in the local beer industry and asked for everyone to comment their brewery and their to-go hours. Quickly, it was suggest-
ed a Google Doc should be made, and that’s how everything was born. Initially, it was simply showing whether you were open or closed, hours and a merchandise or gift card link section. As the state allowed more things [like] shipping, delivery and indoor/outdoor dining the spreadsheet grew. Then I started adding other craft beverage companies — cider, mead, kombucha, distilling — so they could get exposure too. It’s a big job, and not always as updated as I want it to be. It’s always changing, but I’m happy that it seems to have helped regardless. Some businesses are good at updating it themselves, but for the most part it’s just me updating it one-byone. Magie also said there is room for the list to grow.
If you’re a craft brewer or restaurant not currently on the list, reach out or hop in to add yourself because more and more people are checking out the spreadsheet every week. As a living document, it is editable by the businesses themselves, similar to how Wikipedia is constantly being updated by users. She gets a lot of updated data from social media and encourages businesses to make sure they have upto-date information posted everywhere. Sadly, the list will also let you know if a business has recently closed permanently. More recently, industry charitable efforts to support local health care workers, like Five Suits Brewing’s recent Beers 4 the ICU efforts for health care workers or Burning Beard’s In The Weeds program to support in-need industry workers, have found a home on the list. I use it to find out who is delivering to my neighborhood in North County. It is a great one-stop resource for when I want to try something or someone new while staying home, staying safe and supporting local. Be sure to check out the upcoming episode of the Cheers! North County podcast featuring appearances by Elle French from local tequila company Cosa Salvaje, and Beer Santa. Don’t forget to follow Cheers! North County on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

longevity from Tempranillo, Rioja’s native red grape. This wine has matured for a decade in the wine cellar before release. 2. Aubert Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2018. $85. Mark Aubert is a skilled master of Pinot Noir, made off the coast of western Sonoma County. His goal is to make wines with mouth-filling flavors and a low amount of tannins. Powerful and structured with mineral richness that adds to the fineedged red fruit and savory spice flavors. 3. San Filippo Brunello Le Lucere, Montalcino, Italy 2015. $90. San Filippo is a 25 acre vineyard on a plateau of more than 1,320 feet in elevation, aged in three sizes of barrels, then spends another 14 to 16 months in large floor to ceiling casks and a year in bottle before release. The wine shows terrific complexity. 4. Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder Napa 2016. $135. Winemakers age this venerable wine 32 to 36 months in mostly neutral oak. This cab is built on acidity and minerality and represents 2 years in a row in the WS Top Ten. 5. Domaine de la Vielle Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2016. $90. A biodynamically farmed estate with 54 acres of vines in sandy soil. The wines impart a silky elegance to the typically powerful fruit profile of Grenache. 6. Kistler Chardonnay Russian River Valley Sonoma 2017. $90. Sandy soil produces berries that are small in size with concentrated fruit flavors backed by high natural acidity. This is perfect for longterm aging. This Chardonnay is a leader in the new California cool chards that have swept the state with purity and freshness. 7. Massolino Barolo Serralunga d’ Alba Italy 2016. $53. Fourth generation brothers Franco and Roberto Massolino produce this muscle wine from the heart of Serralunga d’Alba, on a 100 acre estate.
A blend of the native Nebbiolo grape, the wine is aged 29 months in 5,000 liter Slavonian oak casks. 8. Bodega Piedra Negra Malbec Los Chacayes Mendoza Argentina 2015. $99. This wine is made at an elevation of 3,600 feet above sea level, rich with gravelly deposits from the nearby Andes. It’s aged 24 months in mostly new French Oak. 9. Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Oregon 2018. $95. This vineyard is planted on Ribbon Ridge, deep in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. A wine of expression, elegantly layered with raspberry, rose petal and brown baking spice. 10. Bollinger Brut Champagne La Grande Annee Champagne France 2012. $175. The cellar master has blended the 2012 La Grande Arnee with its intense spine of acidity, with a range of flavors offered by a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Blend, sourced from premiers and grand crus vineyards. This racy wine goes from zero to 60 right out of the gate, richly aromatic and expressive from start to lasting finish. Rico and I wish you a relaxing, healthy, and joyous holiday season!

nce in a while I come across a business that is doing such great things, I feel compelled to do my part to help spread the word about them. And this one directly relates to the culinary world and what we do with our food scraps, so it’s even more exciting. I discovered The Compost Group at the Leucadia Farmers Market and reached out to founder Naomi Wentworth to join me on the radio version of Lick the Plate, which made me even more enthused with their mission. Basically, through their service, they are bringing the power to both renters, homeowners, and restaurateurs to regeneratively recycle their food scraps back into soil. Please read on to get all the details that are so eloquently explained by Naomi and if you would like to check out our 101KGB interview go to www.lick-theplate.com. LTP: First off, let’s get a basic description of The Compost Group’s mission “to make the world more fertile.” Naomi: Our mission is not just to recycle organic waste, but to recycle it back into a really healthy living soil amendment that can revive depleted soil. We wanted to differentiate that about ourselves in our mission statement because it is common practice in California to call the anaerobic digestion of organic waste ‘recycling’ even though it creates lesser, single-use products — methane fuel and nitrogen pellets — from the process. While we are a recycling company, we actually create a better product from what we receive, and it can be used to regenera-

tively make the world more fertile. LTP: Tell me about the technology you have at your facility in San Marcos that allows you to do this. Naomi: We use in-vessel composting technology at our facility in San Marcos. This form of composting still uses the same biological process as composting in open-air but having a fully contained system ensures that no pests or rodents take over when we add new material and the smells more resemble food. Any decomposition odors are also contained — so the smells we do have are food-like for maybe an hour a day as we input into the system and then a deeply earthy, forest-like smell as we take the product out of the system to mature. This way, we don't have neighbor complaints and can set up more mid-scale decentralized composting hubs throughout more urban areas. It also helps us expedite the composting process so we can handle a lot of material on a really small footprint as we can in compost in a uniform way.
LTP: Explain to folks how you make it easy for them to compost. Naomi: We felt a really strong need to give our community members an option to regeneratively recycle their food scraps back into soil instead of methane to power our hauler’s trucks (what will happen next year with Encinitas’ EDCO), or have their scraps go to landfill (what happens now and will continue to happen in most other cities in the county) where it putrefies and emits methane mostly to the atmosphere. So yes, we give the option for residents and businesses like restaurants, hotels, and corporate cam-
puses an easy way to compost. We give homes a 4-gallon bucket to collect their kitchen scraps in, then collect it from their homes weekly to monthly depending on their needs. We give businesses 48-gallon rolling totes to collect their prep-kitchen, cafe, and plate scrapings waste and pick that up once per week to six days per week depending on their needs. It’s a really simple way to do a lot of good for the planet. LTP: Most people would be surprised by what they can compost. Please elaborate on the possibilities. Naomi: We can compost anything from nature! That is the beautiful system of natural decomposition — anything is going to break down given the right conditions. Since we can ensure the perfect conditions using our technology, we are able to take all food and paper waste — meat, bones, shells, fish scraps, vegetative scraps, fruit, nuts, seeds, garden waste, paper, napkins and cardboard. There is a common misconception about composting: that you can only compost really specific things, like only vegetative scraps. That may be true for a backyard setting where you are unsure if it reaches pathogen-eliminating temperatures and may have issues with pests or odors. Read the full article at www.thecoastnews.com!

She, too, was completely frustrated with corporate life, and began making granola for friends and family. She needed a job to support herself, and did some soul searching to discover what she really wanted to do with her life. She knew she had a good product and “just wanted to work outside instead of sit at a desk, and I knew I loved to cook. Fifteen years after selling granola at my first farmers market, I am still going strong!” “The granola-making process takes about six hours,” she said. “Fresh batches are made once or twice a week. All in all, two or three full days every week are dedicated to the production of my products. I prefer to make less more often to guarantee that wholesome fresh taste.”

Zac and Amanda Markham opened their gourmet shop in Carlsbad six years ago featuring olive oil, balsamic vinegars sourced from “growers in both the northern and southern hemisphere, providing our customers with the highest quality and freshest product in all seasons. “The four crushes of olive oil each year come from Chile, Australia and Spain, depending upon the season of the year. Our 18-year-old Modena Balsamic Vinegar is loved by all our customers and they use it not only in a salad dressing but also in sauces and marinades,” commented Zac as he led me on a tour of the oil and vinegar shelves. Humble Olive Oil, located on State Street in Carlsbad, previously featured olive oil tastings that have been suspended, but the staff is savvy and happy to explain, in detail, the flavor and use of each product. While I was visiting, two sets of customers came into the shop to create gift boxes filled with gourmet cooking products for their entire families. Their well-designed website displays all the varieties of olive oil such as Myer Lemon, Tuscan, Rosemary and Chipotle as well as Modena Balsamic Vinegar, spice mixes, chocolates and pasta. Zac and his staff are available at the State Street shop or on Wednesdays at the Carlsbad Farmers Market. Their products are available on their website (humbleoliveoils.com) or visit the shop at 2922 State Street in Carlsbad; (760) 994-0132.

DEC. 18, 2020
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although taking advice isn’t always easy for the headstrong Sheep, you might want to consider what someone you respect says about an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new offer is tempting, but don’t be bullied into a quick decision. Rely on your keen Bovine business sense to alert you to anything that might be questionable. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini Twin nature rallies to help you deal with this week’s hectic schedules, both in your personal and professional lives. One caution: Watch your diet. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid rushing to make up for time lost on a stalled workplace operation. Best to set up a schedule and pace yourself. Welcome the help of colleagues. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Despite those glittering holiday distractions you love so well, be sure to keep your feline senses set on high to alert you to anything that might require fast action. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Making an effort to restore fraying relationships proves to be more successful than you dared hope. The holidays also bring new friends into your life.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Private and professional matters compete for your attention. Be honest in your assessment of which should get more of it, and for how long. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A seemingly endless list of must-do tasks is best handled by tackling them one by one, and taking energy-restoring timeouts between each job. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A vexing relationship seems destined to deteriorate no matter what each side tries to do. A third party’s advice just might prove helpful. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Reach out to ease any tensions caused by home or workplace pressures before they threaten the relationship-building progress you’ve made. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You often go out of your way to show kindness to others. So, don’t be surprised if other people want to do something nice for you this week. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) People in your life respect your Piscean wisdom, so don’t hesitate to speak up about a matter that you feel isn’t being handled quite the way it should be. BORN THIS WEEK: Your personal warmth helps you make friendships, and your sense of fair play helps you keep them. © 2020 King Features Synd. Inc.
