Teachers union files suit against SDUHSD Lawsuit seeks to block January reopening date By Jordan P. Ingram
ENCINITAS — A local teachers union filed a lawsuit against San Dieguito Union High School District on Dec. 18 in Superior Court, hoping to overturn the school board’s recent decision allowing for a complete return to in-person instruction by late January. The petition, filed by the California Teachers Assoc iat ion’s legal department on behalf of San Dieguito Faculty Association ( SDFA) , seeks to block reopening Allman at Canyon Crest, La Costa Canyon and Torrey Pines high schools. The legal filing comes as San Diego County spirals deeper into the state’s purple tier of COVID-19 guidelines, with public health officials reporting some of the highest daily totals since the pandemic began. “The ultimate goal for us is to not reopen while we are in the purple tier and for (the school board) to reconsider its Jan. 27 proposal,” Duncan Brown, president of SDFA, told The Coast News. “Teachers want to come back onto campus and they want to teach our students in-person learning, there is no question about that. Our teachers are some of the best in the county — they are passionate about

what they do, they love our students. We just want to return safely.” The complaint alleges the district’s reopening plan violates both Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive orders and California Department of Public Health’s guidelines, threatening the “health and safety” of students, teachers, faculty and “community-at-large.” According to the state health department’s “School Reopening Framework,” which sets the rules for when school districts
may reopen, in-person operations are permitted only if the “county satisfies the eligibility requirements for schools” to reopen, which requires remaining in the state’s red tier for at least 14 days. However, schools operating only under “Cohorting Guidance,” meaning small groups of 10 students or less, are not considered “open” for in-person instruction under the state’s framework and may not expand in-person instruction. Additionally, the law-
suit claims the board’s Dec. 15 resolution ignores the terms of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the district and San Dieguito Faculty Association on September 18. The lawsuit comes 10 days after Chang sent a Dec. 9 cease-and-desist letter to Superintendent Robert Haley demanding San Dieguito Union High School District immediately halt its current reopening plans, which it claims are the “wrong step at the wrong time” and a violation of state law, as previ-
ously reported by The Coast News. A day after the school district issued a Dec. 13 statement denying the union’s claims, Chang submitted a second letter to Haley alerting him to the board’s “apparently mistaken understanding regarding the County Office of Education’s position on reopenings” and to “renew our demand that San Dieguito Union High School District cease and desist from unlawfully and unsafely reopening to general in-person instruction.” The matter of resuming in-person instruction has been a lightning rod for spirited debate and protests in previous months. On September 24, parents, teachers and students rallied against the district’s Sept. 17 decision to continue full-time distance learning through January 2021, demanding a return to in-person learning and improved communication between the school district and families. Many have expressed concerns over their children’s mental health after spending several months in quarantine isolated from their peers. At the beginning of October, the district announced it would re-establish its expanded public reopening committee in response to protests. More recently, approximately 30 students held a protest on Dec. 18 at Earl Warren Middle School in Solana Beach following the approved reopening plan and newly elected Trustee Mike Allman’s Dec. 15 remarks about the “value” of student board members’ concerns

CARLSBAD — A Carlsbad teenage boy facing murder charges for the killing of Lisa Thorborg appeared in a juvenile courtroom on Dec. 22 in downtown San Diego. Judge Richard Monroy ruled the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office presented enough evidence to move the case forward, while the suspect, Haloa Beaudet, 17, was not released. The next hearing is scheduled for Jan. 25. Beaudet is accused of stabbing Carlsbad resident Lisa Thorborg, 68, twice in the neck on Nov. 23 in Hosp Grove Park. Carlsbad police arrested Beaudet on Dec. 14, several days after he was questioned about Thorborg’s murder. Debby Kirkwood, Beaudet’s attorney, said her client was not a threat and presented Beaudet’s grandmother Christie Hernandez and great uncle Ray Bercini as char-

Transit district fiscal pressures run deeper than COVID-19 By Dan Brendel
REGION — The regional transit district continues to face structural fiscal pressures — namely, steadily declining ridership and a mounting pension liability — which COVID-19 exacerbated but didn’t fundamentally cause, an annual financial report indicates. Stay-at-home orders caused “significant declines in ridership in all modes of transportation,” according to the report, reducing fare revenues about one-fifth over last fiscal year. NCTD, governed by a board of North County elected municipal officials, operates rail, bus and shuttle services. About three-quarters of its operating revenues come from federal, state and local subsidies, the remainder from passenger fares and other generated income. “With these new stayat-home orders, we do expect that there will be a renewed impact on ridership,” Executive Director Matt Tucker told the board at its Dec. 17 meeting. The Coaster, NCTD’s north-south rail commuter, is the hardest hit, with ridership 88% under-budget. Breeze and Sprinter, the district’s bus and east-west rail commuter services, are down 28% and 31%. Tucker said the difference owes to the fact that Coaster riders more probably can telework, whereas Breeze and Sprinter riders “are going to be classified as essential workers and less likely to be able to work from home.” “We’re looking toward the recovery of the economy and the reopening to see what things we’re going to need to do to bring ridership back,” he said. “NCTD is well prepared to mitigate the financial impact from the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic through the fiscal year 2021,” according to the report.

Sheriff’s deputies stage drunk decoy
By Tigist Layne
By City News Service
ENCINITAS — San Diego sheriff’s deputies teamed up with San Diego police and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control on Dec. 19 for a drunk decoy operation aimed at teaching liquor store clerks in Encinitas not to sell to intoxicated customers. The operation was conducted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at eight locations, according to the sheriff's department. An undercover deputy or officer stumbled into the licensed store slurring their speech, smelling of alcohol, bumping into displays and dropping things before attempting to purchase alcohol, sheriff's officials said. Clerks at five of the
tion, or its bottom line, has decreased steadily over the past decade, from $635 million in 2011 to $479 million in 2020. Passenger boardings fell 28% over 10 years. Fare revenue as a percentage of operating cost has nearly halved, from 24%
NCTD spokeswoman said, citing a 2018 SANDAG study. “NCTD, like many transit agencies, has been working to reverse these trends by focusing on improving services by increasing frequencies and providing services that meet the changing need of our transit market. For example, NCTD is rolling out micro-transit and more than doubling the frequencies of COASTER trains during the next three years.” “Micro-transit” means “small-scale, on-demand” services, such as vans instead of buses, according to the American Public Transportation Association. The funded proportion of NCTD’s CalPERS pension liability has steadily declined, from 78% in 2015 to 72% in 2019. The downward trend is largely caused by CalPERS’ governing board reducing its assumed rate of return on pension fund assets. CalPERS assets, to which NCTD contributes every year, need to appreciate at a sufficient rate to outrun inflation and support future payments to retirees. Decreasing
expected future earnings means increasing current contributions to make up the difference. CalPERS has ratcheted down its expected rate of return from 7.65% in 2015 to 7.15% in 2019. “Very small changes in the [expected rate of return] have an effect on our pension liability,” NCTD CFO Eun Park-Lynch said. If the CalPERS board were to reduce the expected rate of return used to calculate liability down just one percentage point, NCTD’s unfunded obligations would increase nearly 40%, from $41 million to $58 million. Currently, NCTD plans to pay down its unfunded gap through 2043, with annual contributions steadily increasing for several years, from $2.6 in 2020 to $4.1 million in 2026. Solana Beach Councilwoman Jewel Edson called pension liabilities “scary for all of us,” for NCTD and municipal governments alike. “I know we're not trying to get to %100 [i.e., zero unfunded pension liability], that would be almost impossible,” Encinitas Councilman and NCTD board chair Tony Kranz said. “But in the meantime, the southbound trajectory is a little concerning.” “Changes to the [expected rate of return] can threaten some organizations with bankruptcy,” he said. “Despite our challenges with ridership, NCTD is optimistic about the future and believes our services are key to the national goals of reducing harmful emissions and fostering economic opportunity for all,” an NCTD spokeswoman said. “NCTD continues to project a balanced budget for the next five fiscal years and we are working to identify supplemental sources of revenue, to include the advancement of development projects, to generate long-term sources of revenue.”
businesses sold alcohol to the decoys, officials said. It is a misdemeanor in California to sell alcohol to someone who is obviously drunk. The enforcement team entered those stores to explain the dangers to public safety and the potential criminal, civil and administrative penalties, officials said. No enforcement action was taken since the operation was for educational purposes, part of a $100,000 grant from the ABC.
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) held a governing board meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 15, to provide an overview of the district’s budget, which showed a projected budget deficit of nearly $30 million for Fiscal Year 2021-2022. The presented interim budget showed projected deficits of roughly $15 million for 2020-2021, $26 million deficit for 2021-2022 and almost $35 million for 2022-2023. Vincent Christakos, SMUSD’s interim chief business officer, presented these numbers to the board. “The required reserve for economic uncertainties is $7.7 million, so we have enough to cover our required reserve, so that means we can make it through the current year,
but if we look to next year… we end up with a $26 million deficit, which puts us in the hole $12 million. That can’t happen,” Christakos said. He added that, according to state law, if the district remains in this deficit for too long, it may lose the authority to govern itself and be placed under the control of the State Superintendent of Education. The budget report attributes the deficit to a decrease in expected revenue from Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), the lack of a cost of living adjustment (COLA), as well as a decrease in supplemental revenue from high-risk students, as this population has gone down in recent years after it had been stable for the past 10 years. This combined with increased contributions to pensions has resulted in the district’s
budget gap. “In order to keep our ending balance stable, it would take about $30 million in budget adjustments or reductions,” Christakos said. “There’s a lot of work to do. It is possible. We have a lot of suggestions that could be implemented … and those obviously need to be reviewed.” Gov. Gavin Newsom is expected to release the state budget in January, and there is speculation that there will be a reduction of deferrals, as well as the potential for a small COLA in 2021. If there is a COLA, SMUSD’s $30 million deficit could be significantly less. SMUSD’s fiscal future has been shakier since the start of the COVID-19 crisis. However, the district has been facing structural
deficits since before the outbreak began. The school district, which serves about 21,000 students in North County, narrowly avoided anticipated deficits for their 2018-19 school year but has shown a steady downward slide since then. In fact, the district has been projecting a budget deficit since the 2017-2018 adopted budget. Now, the San Diego County Office of Education is requiring SMUSD to submit a plan of how the district plans to reverse this trend of deficit spending by its second interim budget report. The district said during the meeting that they have started working on a plan and they hope to present it to the board by January or February, before the second interim report in March.

Historical revisionism hits schools and parks
Letters to the Editor
An open letter from San Dieguito Union High School District students
he week before winter break is normally a time to be focused on finishing assignments and looking forward to the holiday season. However, in an already unusual year, this week was tumultuous in a different way. Following Tuesday’s School Board meeting, we saw an unprecedented sense of unity among students districtwide as we all scrambled to make sense of the meeting’s events and outcomes—decisions that would drastically affect our lives, and the lives of our teachers. On Tuesday, December 15th the Board called for an illegal, indoor, and in-person meeting — breaking San Diego County’s purple-tier COVID-19 guidelines — to discuss reopening plans: Newly-elected Trustee Michael Allman presented a remodeled reopening plan without SDUHSD community input. The original plan gave students the choice to return to in-person learning one day per week beginning January 4th. Allman’s plan proposed students could choose to return for five days a week starting January 27th. In a 3-2 vote (Trustees Muir, Mossy, and Allman voted ‘yes’ while Trustees Young and Gibson voted ‘no’) — the Board moved forward with Allman’s plan. Both plans gave teachers two options: (1) Return to school to teach in-person while teaching remote students, or (2) Take unpaid
leave and transfer classes to a substitute teacher for the remainder of the year. Healthcare professionals invited by the district— Dr. Gillin, pediatrician; Dr. Carstairs, emergency medicine specialist; Dr. Grossfeld, pediatric cardiologist; and Dr. Zage, oncologist—commented on the reopening plans. Dr. Gillin and Dr. Carstairs expressed they were “extremely impressed” with the “very
Our voices are powerful, no matter what anyone tells us.” safe” plan. The absence of Coronavirus public health officials was glaring. Later on social media, Dr. Kimberly Prather, a specialist in aerosolized spread, commented saying SDUHSD’s plan was “disappointing.” Trustee Allman then made an inflammatory statement when he referred to student opinions as having “near zero value” in Board meetings. Following Allman’s comment, a student-led protest transpired outside of the Board meeting that Thursday. On Thursday, Allman read from a piece of paper when requesting forgiveness for his “misstatement.” He neither clarified what he originally meant
by his comment, nor sincerely apologized to the greater student body. Although our protest that evening did get the Board’s attention, it did not directly impact their decision. However, we will continue standing up for our teachers and classmates. Before writing this letter, we released a Google Form requesting input from the SDUHSD community. We were flooded with responses instantly: 257 people prefer distance learning, 58 people prefer a hybrid model, 31 people prefer in-person learning. This letter reflects the true opinions of SDUHSD constituents that the Board has been neglecting. We write this letter to raise awareness of recent events. Students and teachers make up an important constituency in any school district decision. It is devastating that some teachers taught their last classes on the Friday before winter break because of the Board’s ultimatum. Until the Board becomes more transparent and accepting of our opinions, we have to do all that we can. Be aware of the events happening around you and act on that awareness. Our voices are powerful, no matter what anyone tells us. Joy Ruppert, Aya Jaffer, Ella Sobhani, Shiva Kansagara, Frances Chai, Roxy Morris, Ema Nastic and Kylie Hayase are students in the San Dieguito Union High School District.
istorical revisionism — that’s the only term to describe what’s happening today in the naming of public schools and parks. Who led what, who created what, whose ideas and ideals resulted in today’s world, these things mean less with each passing week and each renaming. Admittedly, it makes no sense to lionize persons like Braxton Bragg, the commander of the Confederate Army of the Mississippi during the Civil War and the recipient of three brevet promotions during a single battle in the Mexican-American War about 18 years earlier. The Northern California outpost and later city of Fort Bragg took his name after he returned from Mexico with a hero’s reputation, and city officials say they’ll keep the name even though Bragg had little connection to the area. There’s good reason for African Americans to resent naming any city after Bragg and little reason for anyone else to support honoring his name. But that’s very different from the likes of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, for whom schools, parks and cities have long been named all over America. No one ever claimed these seminal figures in United States history were saints, but things they did shaped America for the better in definite ways. No doubt Washington was a major slave owner, his sumptuous home and lifestyle at Mount Vernon near what is now Washington, D.C. enabled by exploitation of the labor of human beings he owned. But Washington led the Continental Army with daring, inspiration and courage in the Revolutionary War. He also refused of-
thomas d. elias
fers to become king of this country around the time he left office after two terms as the first president. For a contrast, imagine how Donald Trump might react to such an offer. For his remarkable actions and his refusal of monarchic status, Washington deserves massive recognition despite enslaving others. Yes, he had flaws, but he shaped American ideals perhaps more than any other individual. Removing his name from schools — as the San Francisco school board now contemplates — or from cities would amount to renouncing some of the best of our history. The same for Lincoln, whose Emancipation Proclamation freed almost all slaves in America. Yes, he conducted Indian wars against Native American tribes and even drank some alcohol. Lincoln, thus, was also not saintly, but he remains a seminal figure in American progress and national survival. Erasing his name amounts to an attempt to erase history. The list goes on, especially in San Francisco, where officials are considering renaming schools called after Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere, Spanish explorer Vasco Nunez de Balboa, the Alamo, U.S. Sen. and former San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein, naturalist John Muir and early San Francisco Mayor Adolph Sutro. In no case, are or were any of these figures perfect human beings, which apparently is required to sat-
isfy revisionist standards of political correctness. In each case, the individual or institution was a product of contemporary times and morality. It might be appropriate to consider renaming the many Mission schools in San Francisco and other parts of California because of the enslavement of Native Americans by Spanish monks who led the European exploration and colonization of Mexico and then this state. But there can be no argument that the mission system, with its churches and attendant farms neatly placed a day’s journey apart had a major part in California’s development, even to the placement of major cities. Denying that history invites nothing but ignorance. It’s not merely schools that are under pressure now to change names and thus attempt to downgrade the history and contributions of past leaders and institutions. There’s also a move afoot to change names of state parks, most of which already carry names of locations and not people. Example: Two former state park commissioners suggested in an op-ed the other day renaming parks in Los Angeles after African-descended soldiers who accompanied the Spaniards who founded Los Angeles. But that expedition was not their idea, nor did they decide how it was conducted. Their leaders did. Naming parks and schools for folks who were along for the ride but not shaping events would mislead and misrepresent history, with potential consequences no one today can foresee.

Students, teachers react to reopening plans By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District board's controversial resolution allowing in-person instruction by January has motivated students, faculty and teachers unions to voice their opposition to the district's plans. Tracy Yates, a founding faculty member and teacher at Canyon Crest Academy, described the mood among teachers as “defeated.” Yates said she only knows of one teacher who is in favor of reopening campuses to in-person instruction. Describing a complicated situation in which the administrators at Canyon Crest are supportive, “making every effort to make the best of the situation,” while the SDUHSD district School Board themselves, Yates is worried. “We’ve been such a collaborative district for so long,” Yates, who has taught in the district for over 20 years, added. “I think we’re just all blown away by the fact that none of our voices are being heard anymore. It feels like [faculty and the school board] are moving from battle to battle. “It seems the days of working together as a team are all but gone and it is terrifying as an educator in this district to see how detrimental this will be to our students’ and schools’ futures,” Yates said. According to Yates, the consequences of such conflict between the district and faculty association will not only negatively impact future enrollment numbers but also reduce retention of full-time staff and substitute teachers. The Coast News was unable to find a teacher willing to speak publicly in support of reopening campuses to in-person instruction. Students have also joined in protest of the district’s reopening plans. In response to com-

ments made on Dec. 15 by newly-appointed Trustee Mike Allman ascribing the value of student input as “near zero,” Canyon Crest Academy students Omid Fouladpouri, Andrew Gao and Emanuele Rimini organized a socially-distanced protest outside the district’s Dec. 17 meeting at Earl Warren Middle School in Solana Beach. The students opposed the district's “unsafe reopening” plans which they believe will put both faculty and students at risk and called on board members to better integrate students' opinions into the decision-making process. During the meeting, Allman clarified his previous statement. “I value your input, I truly do," Allman said. "I hope you will see that it has always been my input to work hard so you and the 13,000 students have the best possible district and the wonderful education you deserve.” However, Fouladpouri, Gao, and Rimini view Allman’s retraction as “performative.” “The board serves the community and the students,” Gao said. “They should take our interests and opinions into account
because they are representing us. We go to these schools and our teachers are the ones at risk.” According to Rimini, following Allman’s comment on Dec 15, the number of students involved and interested in how the board makes decisions has spiked. “If you’re making decisions for a party of people, you might want to get their opinions, no matter how young, old or educated,” Rimini said. “We are humans who can think of ourselves and if we disagree, [the board] should be working with us to teach us the nuances of their plan, but they just aren’t and then they call us ‘too young.’” All three students acknowledged the challenges of distance learning and the pandemic’s negative impact on mental health, however, they suggested the district fund other creative solutions addressing students’ emotional and psychological well-being. “We must also, after this whole situation passes, ask ourselves, why were we in this situation in the first place,” Fouladpouri asked. “How can we prevent this from happening again by allowing teachers and students a real voice in decisions made by the district?”
being “very near zero.” “These are young kids and this is a serious topic,” Allman said. “To think that this board should place very much weight at all on what one individual or a couple of individual high schoolers think is a dereliction of our duty.” Brown said he found Allman’s comments about students’ opinions bothersome and dismissive. “I think Mr. Allman’s comment, in particular, is troubling how he disregards almost 13,00 students’ opinions,” Brown said. “The student board represents those five high schools and they do it very well.” However, in November, Brown faced criticism of his own on social media after a hot mic appeared to capture him making a remark about a “stupid student thing” during a closed session. On Dec. 17, Allman read a prepared statement which reads, in part: “I know most of you don’t know me, so I just want to say, I’m a very passionate man and I care very deeply about our students, staff and families.” Since he was a candidate in November’s election, Allman has consistently advocated for students to return to campuses. “Our children are not doing well in distance learning,” Allman told NBC7 in October. “I’ve heard of many terrible stories and we need to get our kids back into school. It’s time to give them the education they deserve.”
VISTA — After two meetings and nearly eight hours of discussion, the Vista Unified School District Board of Trustees voted 3-2 to delay making a formal decision on re-opening plans during its Dec. 17 meeting. The board voted to hold a special meeting on Jan. 13. Some parents in the district believe the board’s decision to reconvene on Jan. 13 is a decision to not allow schools to re-open, despite county evidence contrary to concerns about COVID-19 outbreaks in schools. Trustees Rosemary Smithfield and Debbie Morton pleaded with the board to continue to follow the district’s plans of virtual and classic (in-person) models. They said the evidence of falling grades, declining mental health, lack of engagement and parents begging to allow their children back warrants schools to open. “We’re dropping the ball for our kids,” Smithfield said. “I can’t ignore the phone calls of parents, crying, asking where to take their student. The parents know better than I do.” Also, the district’s own survey showed an average of 76% of teachers rated the district’s personal protection equipment (PPE) and health and safety protocols at high or excellent levels. According to a report from KPBS, schools accounted for 12 outbreaks of COVID-19, according to the county's data. During the Dec. 15 meeting, Mary Trompet-
er-Ermis, president of the classified union, also requested the district re-open, stating virtual schooling is a job killer for custodians and support staff. “Virtual learning is a threat to our jobs. Thousands have been laid off,” she said. The longer the students are not on campus, and the fewer of them that are there, the less that classified workers can do their job. It would be devastating to have hundreds of people to lose their jobs with nowhere to go. Schools are not super-spreaders of COVID-19.” Board President Cipriano Vargas, Martha Alvarado and newly elected Trustee Julie Kelly all voted to push the meeting to Jan. 13. Alvarado and Kelly also sparred with Smithfield and Morton over the conditions. Alvarado, who is a teacher, and Kelly said the rising number of COVID-19 cases, lack of ICU beds and potential for further community spread was their priority. While the district has had a number of students test positive for COVID-19, contact tracing has not revealed any connection to the source being from a school, Smithfield said. Instead, those students were infected outside school grounds through club sports, gatherings and other social contacts, she added. “I’m looking at community outbreaks,” Alvarado said. “There is less than 6 feet in classrooms with a bunch of teachers who probably don’t realize they have COVID.”

The utility district will be 100 years old in June 2022 and to date, has had only two other women serve on the board — Pat Knock, who served from 1996 to 1998, and Mary McNeil, who served from 1998 to 2002. McNeil served as vice president in 2000. “I am excited to serve our ratepayers in this new role and to be the first woman to lead our board,” DeMeo said. “It’s an honor. And I want to enhance community outreach.”
Since DeMeo was first elected to the board in 2016, Fallbrook Public Utility District made progress on resolving a 70-yearsold legal fight to use local, cheaper water from the Santa Margarita River. After losing the rights to that water during the fight, the district was forced to buy expensive, imported water. Today, local water is expected to flow from Fallbrook taps by early 2022, providing customers relief from escalating imported water costs. Also under DeMeo’s tenure, the board permanently preserved the 1,384 acres of hiking trails along the Santa Margarita River, ensuring public access and the use of the trails in perpetuity. DeMeo was re-elected to her second term on the board last month. The longtime Fallbrook resident moved from Escondido to live in the town she describes as “out of the way, with a village feel.”

Coronavirus Rancho Santa Fe School District focuses COVID-19 testing on staff By Dan Brendel
RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe School K-8 District plans to enhance its COVID testing for staff, though broad testing for asymptomatic students remains a bridge too far. “There’s no state or county mandate to screen asymptomatic students,” Superintendent Donna Tripi told school board members during a presentation at its Dec. 17 meeting. “The mandate is really — and it’s not even a mandate, it is ‘as practical’ — is about the adults on campus.” Following health official guidance, the district mandates routine “surveillance testing” for staff, even if they’re not showing symptoms, on a two-month rotation. Every two weeks, one-quarter of the staff — including teachers, cafeteria workers, janitors, bus drivers and anyone else who has contact with students — receives a test, administered at county testing sites. Supplementally, the district requires “re-entry testing” for staff after returning from extended time off, such as Thanksgiving and winter break. Under a contract with the district, U.C. San Diego administers this testing at its sites. All staff were tested within a week after Thanksgiving, but school continued as usual during that period, even before all staff were tested or results known. The district amended its contract such that, on the first day back from winter break, U.C. San Diego clinicians will administer on-campus testing to all staff at one time. “We think it's important, after a two-week break, to be able to do that before staff actually start interacting with each other or with students,” Tripi said.
Staff will also receive reentry testing after “Family Week” in February and after spring break. The board earlier approved district-funded testing for symptomatic staff. That program has been “slow to start,” but will commence after winter break, Tripi said. The board has approved district-funded testing for students showing symptoms or who’ve been exposed to a positive COVID case at school, at parents’ discretion. “What has not been approved is student asymptomatic testing,” Tripi said, noting no North County public school district, except Solana Beach, provides such testing. Rancho Santa Fe school leadership encourage families, if they travel during winter break, to keep their children home voluntarily for 14 days. The district would provide for distance learning during that time. U.C. San Diego lacks capacity to add asymptomatic student testing to its contract with the district. But Tripi will report to the board about potential alternatives at a later date. She said staff will receive an early round of COVID vaccines, but doesn’t know when. She doesn’t expect students will receive the vaccine for about a year. “It’s going to get worse before it gets better,” School Board Member John Tree said. He asked district families to ‘remain vigilant’ despite ‘fatigue.’ If you travel, please quarantine your children.” The district has so far approved about $28,000 in General Fund expenditures for testing. The testing regime supplements the district’s other standing COVID-related health and hygiene protocols. The district has not yet needed to quarantine a whole class or age cohort.

Cruise ships return to San Diego this week By City News Service
REGION — Cruise ships are scheduled to return to the Port of San Diego this week and through the new year, part of an effort by the cruise lines to reestablish ships in U.S. waters as a prerequisite to resume cruising in a postCOVID-19 world, it was announced Monday. Five Holland America Line ships and one Princess Cruises ship are scheduled to arrive beginning Wednesday, periodically docking at the B Street Cruise Terminal for fuel, food, supplies and services. At this time, none of the vessels will be carrying passengers or conducting any sailings, according to local port officials. To resume cruises after the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention deems it safe in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ships must reestablish operations in United States waters to meet CDC and U.S. Coast Guard guidelines. According to port officials, time spent docked in San Diego will be limited. Each ship is scheduled to dock at B Street the morning of their scheduled arrival date and depart that evening. The Holland America Line ships are scheduled to remain in the San Diego area and may be visible off the coast, with some periodically positioning in the outer anchorage just outside of San Diego Bay off the coast of Coronado. After their initial arrival, each HAL ship plans to
periodically return to the B Street Cruise Terminal to refuel and/or to resupply or receive services. The Emerald Princess is scheduled to go to Los Angeles after its Dec. 24 visit, but port officials stressed that vessel schedules may change. Crew members aboard the vessels will not be allowed off unless as part of crew changes with plans and procedures reviewed and approved by the CDC, Coast Guard, Customs an Border Patrol and county Health and Human Services. All crew members will be regularly tested for COVID-19 and health procedures will be followed in the event of an infection. The COVID-19 pandemic has had major impacts on San Diego’s tourism indus-
try, including 119 canceled cruises since March, representing a loss of roughly $200 million in regional economic activity, impacting local businesses and government. The Port’s cruise industry supports jobs, including in retail, restaurant and lodging; transportation, trucking and warehousing; ship agents and stevedoring; and security and manpower services. The current arrival schedule is: — Dec. 23: Holland America Koningsdam; — Dec. 24: Princess Cruises Emerald Princess; — Dec. 28: Holland America Westerdam; — Jan. 8: Holland America Zuiderdam; and — Jan. 11: Holland America Noordam.

LOU BOSCH, plant manager of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), is retiring after more than 30 years at the plant. Courtesy photo
San Onofre plant manager to retire By Samantha Nelson
REGION — After working 35 years at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, Lou Bosch is retiring next month after spending the last six years as plant manager. Overall, Bosch has worked in the nuclear industry for 42 years. His career began in 1978 as a U.S. Navy reactor operator on board the U.S.S. Hammerhead, a fast-attack nuclear submarine. After serving six years in the Navy, Bosch left to work at Three Mile Island, a nuclear plant in Pennsylvania. Two years later, he visited Southern California for the first time and decided to apply at San Onofre, where he was eventually hired as an instrument technician. Through the years he finished his engineering degree and became an engineer, engineering manager and gained his Senior Reactor Operator (SRO) certification. He attended a few more years of school and eventually became the plant’s shop manager, putting him in charge of both Units 2 and 3 when they were “basically powering up all of Southern California.” When Bosch was first hired, all three of the plant’s units were still in operation. Unit 1 was retired in 1992, and Units 2 and 3
were retired in 2012. After ship manager, Bosch went into quality assurance management at the plant before finally becoming plant manager six years ago. “As plant manager, you’ve got to really know every piece of the plant,” Bosch said. Bosch became plant manager after the decommissioning process was announced. He said it was sad to see the plant “prematurely” enter the decommissioning process, but he was determined to see the plant set the industry gold standard on how to properly go through decommissioning. Bosch believes San Onofre was one of the better performing plants in the country throughout its lifetime. “Throughout my career, I have always been impressed by each and every nuclear professional who performs their job each day safely, thoroughly and compliantly,” he said. “These nuclear professionals help generate 20% of the nation’s electricity, and they do it safely and carbon-free.” According to Bosch, the nuclear industry is one of the safest in the country but many people don’t understand and fear it. “I think that as far as nuclear goes, most people really just want to make sure that we’re safe,” Bosch
said. “I can tell you that we are doing it extremely safe.” One thing the industry could improve, he noted, is how they educate people about the industry. San Onofre has incorporated its own source of community education of the plant’s decommissioning process through the Community Engagement Panel, which holds public meetings about four times a year. Members of the panel include regional educators, elected officials, environmentalists and labor representatives. Bosch officially retires on Jan. 4. He plans to stick around the place he has called home for the last several decades with his wife, children and grandchildren. Bosch, whose wife is French Canadian, also plans to become fluent in French during retirement. Additionally, Bosch wants to provide consulting services to help nuclear professionals and plants entering the decommissioning process. “This has been a great run and I have never been prouder to be part of this great fraternity of nuclear professionals,” Bosch said. “It’s now time for me to enter the next chapter of my life with wonderful memories of the people I’ve come to know and the places I’ve worked.”

County emergency services increases qualified shelter workers By City News Service
REGION — The San Diego County Office of Emergency Services increased its number of qualified shelter workers and managers by 67% as part of an effort to be better prepared for opening and maintaining emergency shelters during disasters, it was announced today. OES increased the number of county employees who are qualified to work at and manage emergency shelters from 420 to 702 per-
sonnel in 2020. “While the American Red Cross serves as our primary source for providing emergency shelter during an emergency, this increase in qualified personnel to our county shelter team program helps to improve our rapid response capabilities,” San Diego County OES Director Jeff Toney said. “This large increase in qualified personnel will allow us to be better prepared to open and operate addi-
tional facilities when the demand exceeds the resources provided by the Red Cross.” All county workers are classified as disaster service workers. Toney said most of the county’s qualified shelter workers and managers come from departments outside of OES. The training they undergo, which now includes a specific pandemic section, teaches them how to ensure county residents are living safely with increased preparedness for disasters.

Carlsbad farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; food donations top 500,000 pounds By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Food insecurity has been one of the many consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. But one Carlsbad farmer, and his staff, are doing more than their part in helping children, seniors and families eat a little healthier, along with providing free food donations to local nonprofits. Jimmy Ukegawa, who owns the Carlsbad Strawberry Co. and Aviara Farms, has donated more than 500,000 pounds of food with assistance from Hollandia Dairy and several other tenants at his 40,000-square foot warehouse on Aviara Parkway and Palomar Airport Road. The effort began modestly in March when the pandemic first reached the U.S. as he partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad and Carlsbad Senior Center. Ukegawa, along with Tracy Carmichael, president of the Carlsbad Christmas Bureau, approached the city about helping with food deliveries for seniors. From there, it has grown to include Head Start programs, North County Lifeline, schools and affordable living residences. Through the other organizations, the food also reaches residents in Oceanside and Vista, Ukegawa said. Not one to seek credit

or the limelight, Ukegawa said he prefers the anonymity and is just thankful he can be a resource for those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hit hard times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had all kinds of fruits and vegetables, which made it easy to donate to all kinds of organizations,â&#x20AC;? he said of the seniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really kept it under the radar. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not our style. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask who itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going
to or for names. We just want to drop it off and no questions asked.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, his annual pumpkin patch, which doubles as a fundraiser for the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, raised $135,000 to donate to the nonprofit. It was his best season by far, Ukegawa said, for the patch and corn mazes.
This year dwarfed his average take and donation of $25,000. At the beginning of the pandemic, Ukegawa said he was averaging about 10 to 20 boxes of fruit and produce per week. Now, the average is up to 720 boxes. Additionally, his staff does some deliveries while others come to the warehouse to pick up food.

acter witnesses. Hernandez said Beaudet came to live with her and her husband in September after moving from Oregon where Beaudetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother lives. She said he is a loving, caring, easy-going teenager with a sense of humor and affectionate personality with a love of the outdoors. Bercini, a retired Los Angeles County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detective, also said he had no fears about overseeing Beaudet if he were released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been no issues of violence and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s followed the rules,â&#x20AC;? Hernandez said of the living situation. However, Deputy District Attorney Helen Kim painted a different picture, noting Beaudet was suspended â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple timesâ&#x20AC;? for fighting at school in Oregon. Prior to moving to Oregon, Beaudet lived in Hawaii with his maternal grandmother, who sent him to a boarding school. Kim said Beaudet twice ran away from the school, although Hernandez said her grandson enrolled in the school to earn his diploma early with hopes of joining the military. When Beaudet moved to Carlsbad, he enrolled in an online home school, Hernandez said. Kim said Beaudetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother was looking to move him back to Oregon and was researching how to transfer schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Dec. 10, he fled from police,â&#x20AC;? Kim said, Kim
The city of Carlsbad serves meals to seniors five days per week. But with the pandemic, the weekends were a struggle, so Ukegawa filled the gap with his boxes. According to Mike Pacheco, Carlsbadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation services manager, at its height, the senior center was delivering to 400 people per week. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down to 200, but he said the quality of produce and fruits provide many seniors with some of the healthiest food theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in a long time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I explained how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d normally be serving meals in the Senior Center â&#x20AC;Ś but now we were doing tons of deliveries,â&#x20AC;? Pacheco said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He came in and showed us the best way to store the fruit and properly pack it. We get so much positive feedback and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re amazed at the quality of the produce. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call every week and get feedback, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s printed out all these recipes and he really takes it seriously.â&#x20AC;? In August, friend Annie Luckett, a stay-at-home mom of 9-year-old twins, was recruited by Ukegawa to help coordinate and cultivate new contacts. Luckett called principals and the Head Start programs in the city. The message was simple, she and Ukegawa wanted to know if there was a need to assist individuals,
families or children who were food insecure. No names or addresses, just if those organizations would want to distribute the boxes from Ukegawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re extremely grateful and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rewarding to help,â&#x20AC;? Luckett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Head Startâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get thank you letters, texts and everybody is so grateful because I think it relieves the pressure.â&#x20AC;? As the pandemic has carried on, Ukegawa also pivoted to create an openair market at his warehouse, where shoppers can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, bread, jam, pie crusts, Bitchinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sauce and numerous other products. The market has steadily increased in popularity, which he said he will eventually transition over the strawberry farm off Cannon Road and Interstate 5. Additionally, his famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;U-pickâ&#x20AC;? had its best season ever as the strawberry fields incorporated all the acreage to be picked at once to manage social distancing guidelines. Typically, Ukegawa would limit the U-pick to just an acre or two and rotate between plots to allow time for the strawberries to grow at a staggered pace. But now, the activity has been so popular, he opened up the entire 25 acres for picking, which has helped supplement the donations.
objecting to his release due to the nature of the allegations. Kirkwood said Beaudet typically ran or exercised on the same trail in Hosp Grove Park and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense he would consistently return to the scene of the crime. Carlsbad police detective Josh Bubins detailed how police arrested Beaudet roughly three weeks after the murder. Bubins said police found Beaudetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DNA on Thorborgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shorts and also on a pair of flip-flops found at the scene. Kirkwood said the DNA could have come from Thorborg sitting on a nearby log, which her client may have sat. Kirkwood said investigators were reaching their conclusion the DNA was definitive proof Beaudet killed Thorborg. Bubins said cameras also showed Beaudet running away from the scene 15 minutes after the murder occurred, which police believe was at 11:10 a.m. Police received a 9-1-1 call at 11:23 a.m. on Nov. 23 notifying them Thorborgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body had been discovered. Carlsbad Police retraced Beaudetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steps from 10:21 a.m. when he was dropped off in his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SUV at Hosp Grove Park, according to Bubins. The detective said Beaudet frequented the trail to exercise and his typical routine began with being dropped off by a family member before walking home. Police arrested Beaudet after authorities were called
for a report about a prowler on the morning of Dec. 10. Bubins said when officers arrived, they attempted to stop Beaudet to ask questions, but the teen fled. Beaudet was subsequently caught and taken to the police department for questioning. During questioning, Beaudet said at first he hadn't left a pair of flip-flops at the scene, but then later admitted leaving them. Beaudet told Bubins he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worried about leaving his footwear because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in â&#x20AC;&#x153;material things.â&#x20AC;? Police also have video footage from cameras set up on Dec. 2, which recorded Beaudet â&#x20AC;&#x153;almostâ&#x20AC;? daily at the park. The video showed Beaudet walking the trail, peering into the yards of residents, lifting up door handles on cars and talking to himself, according to Bubins. However, Kirkwood said four different types of DNA were found on Thorborgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body, which was confirmed by Bubins, and only a small percentage belonged to her client. Beaudet's attorney claimed the arrest occurred because her client just happened to be on the trail. According to the police report, Thorborg was stabbed twice in the neck cutting her carotid artery causing â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lethal injury.â&#x20AC;? Bubins said Thorborg had all her possessions and it did not appear a robbery or sexual assault had taken place.

Sports Preller seeks to plug holes with eye on new year sports talk
he Padres examined their stocking, and it was full of promise. Them getting right was among the few things that went right in 2020. They shed a nine-season run of losing baseball, ignited the region’s love affair with pro baseball, won their first playoff series since 1998 and put a slight scare into the mighty world champion Los Angeles Dodgers. But standing pat in sports means you’re losing ground. That’s why general manager A.J. Preller, an Encinitas resident, and manager Jayce Tingler, will fine-tune a squad after a PRELLER season to remember in a year to forget. Preller isn’t overhauling those in Padres duds like previous offseasons. After an abbreviated year of blue skies, the horizon is clear with the home nine brimming with production and potential. “I’ve got a lot of confidence in the roster we currently have,” Tingler told reporters during the Winter Meetings. “Are we a World Series contender? I think that’s going to be determined by a couple of things.” Primarily, the expected growth of those in-house. That goes for Tingler, who was sensational in his rookie season but, like everyone, has room for improvement. The biggest news the senior Padres’ brass might
jay paris deliver could revolve around a Junior. Shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. displayed the athleticism, electricity and passion that reminded many of another San Diego great, although from a different sport, in Oceanside’s Junior Seau. Like the late Seau with the Chargers, Tatis never takes a play off and he makes teammates better. His enthusiasm is contagious, his talent obvious even to those not familiar with baseball. The highlight reel of Tatis’ season is a “SayWow.” So, the Padres are smartly exploring extending Tatis’ contract past 2024 to anchor his frosted dreadlocks in San Diego. Preller, the lone GM whose Zoom background could include Moonlight Beach, calls Tatis’ situation a “priority.” Tatis, 21, was fourth in the National League MVP voting after hitting .277 with 17 home runs. Tatis’ emergence, third baseman Manny Machado’s re-emergence to finish No. 3 in the NL MVP balloting and rebounds by others were swell. But the season didn’t end with a celebratory dogpile, which is always the goal, after absorbing a three-game sweep by the Dodgers in the NL Division Series.
So, Preller ponders on how best to address the rotation (minus an injured Mike Clevinger), bullpen (missing closers Kirby Yates and Trevor Rosenthal) and bench (key pieces became free agents). Preller’s handiwork is orchestrated in the shadow of the Dodgers, led by manager Dave Roberts, after they won their first title since 1988. Roberts still lives in Cardiff and his Dodgers aren’t going anywhere, either. If the Padres want to reach their World Series destination, keeping pace with
their northerly neighbors is required. “They just don’t have many holes,” Tingler said. The Padres used to stand at the dam, madly trying to plug too many breaches because of a lack of talent. That’s no longer true, but it’s false to think the Padres can’t rise. “We know that we made significant steps in 2020,” Tingler said. “But we know we still have a lot of work to do.”

THE NEWLY sworn Oceanside City Council officially set tax rates for cannabis businesses during its Dec. 16 meeting. Oceanside and Vista are the only two North County cities that have established cannabis industry tax rates. File photo
Oceanside sets tax rates for cannabis shops By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — About a month after the passage of Measure M, the Oceanside City Council set initial tax rates for cannabis businesses within Oceanside. Measure M asked voters to establish a cannabis business tax that the city would collect from its licensed cannabis businesses. The measure passed in the November election with a 61.78% majority vote. The newly elected Council officially set the tax at its Dec. 16 meeting. Oceanside currently only has one active cannabis business, which is MedLeaf, a delivery-only service. A cannabis product manufacturer known as Left Coast is expected to start running soon as well. The tax would apply to both recreational and medical cannabis businesses, though Oceanside currently only allows for medical cannabis operations. Proceeds from the tax could be used for any lawful general government purpose, including enforcement against other illegal cannabis businesses. Oceanside and Vista are so far the only two North County cities that have set cannabis business taxes. Other San Diego County cities with cannabis business taxes include San Diego, Chula Vista and La Mesa. The city hired HdL consulting firm to prepare a fiscal analysis and a potential tax structure. They determined a range of tax rates for the different types of cannabis businesses that would generate significant revenue without overburdening the city’s fledgling cannabis industry. “I think we have adopted a fairly reasonable and successful way of regulating these businesses, and I think if we set a tax that is too burdensome
those businesses that are trying to be good neighbors and follow the law are going to get sidelined for the illegal operations,” said Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim. Manufacturing cannabis businesses have a tax rate of 2.5%, distributors and nurseries both at 2%, cultivation at 1.5% and retailers at 5%. Originally staff recommended a 4% rate for manufacturers, 3% for distributors and 2.5% for cultivators, but council lowered those initial rates as Councilmembers Peter Weiss and Chris Rodriguez suggested. HdL estimated that annual revenues could reach $1.4 million based on these initial tax rates and the city’s anticipated
number of cannabis businesses, but that figure is dependent on all the businesses being open, and the city isn’t sure when exactly that will happen. Gossman explained that initial revenue is expected to be low but will grow over time as more businesses open. Council is able to go back and adjust the tax rates within their specified ranges, which is 2.56% for manufacturers, 2-6% for distributors and nurseries, 1.5-3.5% for cultivators and 4-6% for retailers. The cultivation tax is subject to an annual adjustment rounding up to the nearest cent based on the year-over-year percentage change in the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Businesses must register with the city prior to beginning operation and must also pay a registration fee to cover the city’s cost of implementing the tax.

Schedules shift for bus, train during holidays By Staff
REGION — The North County Transit District (NCTD) is providing the 2020 holiday service schedule and the Amtrak Rail-2Rail (R2R) program blackout dates so that customers can proactively plan holiday travel. The NCTD holiday service schedules will be in effect for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, as follows: • Christmas Day, Dec. 25: All services will offer a Sunday service schedule • New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31: All services will offer a normal service schedule • New Year’s Day, Jan. 1: All services will offer a Sunday service schedule The Amtrak R2R partnership with NCTD, which allows COASTER customers to travel on Amtrak trains in the San Diego area, will be blacked out between Dec. 23 and Dec. 28. During this time, all Amtrak Pacif-
ic Surfliner customers will be required to show a valid Amtrak fare and no COASTER passes will be accepted. Immediately following the holidays, NCTD will ring in the new year with the return of front door boarding on all BREEZE buses. Reardoor boarding was implemented at the start of the pandemic in Spring 2020 to increase safety by implementing physical distancing between drivers and customers. Safety barriers have been installed on all fixedroute BREEZE bus vehicles in the fleet. In addition, all new buses will be delivered with driver safety barriers installed. NCTD is currently expecting that 20 new buses will be placed into revenue service by the end of February 2021. It is anticipated that beginning Jan. 2, all passengers will be expected to board through the front door of the bus and cash fare collection will resume. Riders are encouraged to check the NCTD website or Rider’s Guide for accurate scheduling information during the holidays. For trip planning assistance, customers can contact NCTD’s Customer Service Department at (760) 966-6500 or visit GoNCTD. com.

CITY OF CARLSBAD ORDINANCE NO. CS-388 AN 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 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, 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, 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 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 5.70.060 5.70.070 5.70.080 5.70.090 5.70.100
Recordkeeping. Enforcement. Exemption for collective bargaining agreement. No waiver of rights. Retaliatory action prohibited. 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 laid-off 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.

Density Bonus Regulations. 1. The purpose of this subsection is to specify how compliance with Government Code Sections 65915, 65915.5, 65915.7, and 65917 (“State Density Bonus Law”) will be implemented, as required by Government Code Section 65915(a). 2. Definitions. The definitions found in State Density Bonus Law shall apply to the terms contained in this subsection.

and for which there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific, adverse impact without rendering the development unaffordable to lower-income and moderate-income households. Inconsistency with the Zoning Ordinance or General Plan land use designation or eligibility to claim a welfare exemption under Revenue and Taxation Code Section 214(g) shall not constitute a specific, adverse impact upon the public health or safety. 3.

All requests for density bonuses, incentives or concessions, parking reductionatios, waivers, or commercial development bonuses shall be considered and acted upon by the approval body with authority to approve the development within the timelines prescribed by Government Code Sections 65950 et seq., with right of appeal to the City Council. a. Eligibility for Density Bonus, Incentive(s) or Concession(s), Parking Ratioeduction, and/or Waiver(s) for a Housing Development.

The housing development provides the affordable units or senior housing required by State Density Bonus Law pursuant to Government Code Sections 65915(b), (c), and (f) to be eligible for the density bonus and any incentives or concessions, parking ratioeduction, or waivers requested, including the replacement of units rented or formerly rented to low and very low-income households as required by Government Code Section 65915(c) (3). ii. Any requested incentive or concession will result in identifiable and actual cost reductions to provide for affordable housing costs or rents; except that, if a mixeduse development is requested, the application must instead meet all of the requirements of Government Code Section 65915(k)(2). iii. The development standards for which a waiver is requested would have the effect of physically precluding the construction of a development at the densities or with the concessions or incentives permitted by Government Code Section 65915. iv. The housing development is eligible for any requested the parking ratioeductions provided requested under Government Code Section 65915(p). v. If the housing development is in the coastal zone, the requested density bonus and any requested incentive(s) or concession(s), waiver(s), or parking ratioeduction(s) are consistent with all applicable requirements of the certified Encinitas Local Coastal Program, with the exception of density. vi. If the density bonus is based all or in part on donation of land, all of the requirements included in Government Code Section 65915(g) have been met. vii. If the density bonus or incentive or concession is based all or in part on the inclusion of a child care facility, all of the requirements included in Government Code Section 65915(h) have been met. viii. If the density bonus or incentive or concession is based all or in part on the inclusion of affordable units as part of a condominium conversion, all of the requirements included in Government Code Section 65915.5 have been met. b.

If the project is in the coastal zone, the decision-making body shall also find that the commercial development bonus is consistent with all applicable requirements of the certified Encinitas Local Coastal Program, with the exception of density. c. The decision-making body shall grant an incentive or concession requested by the applicant unless it makes a written finding, based upon substantial evidence, of any of the following: i. The proposed incentive or concession does not result in identifiable and actual cost reductions to provide for affordable housing costs, as defined in Section 50052.5 of the Health and Safety code, or for affordable rents, as defined in Section 50053 of the Health and Safety Code; or ii. The proposed incentive or concession would be contrary to state or federal law; or iii.

For the purpose of this subsection, “specific adverse impact” means a significant, quantifiable, direct, and unavoidable impact, based on objective, identified, written public health or safety standards, policies, or conditions as they existed on the date that the application for the housing development was deemed complete. d. The decision-making body shall grant the waiver of development standards requested by the applicant unless it makes a written finding, based upon substantial evidence, of any of the following: i. The development standards requested to be waived will not have the effect of physically precluding the construction of a housing development at the permitted density or with the incentives or concessions, and, as a consequence, grant of the waiver would be contrary to state law; or i ii. The proposed waiver would be otherwise contrary to state or federal law; or ii iii. The proposed waiver would have an adverse impact on any real property listed in the California Regis-
ter of Historic Resources; or iii iv. The proposed waiver would have a specific, adverse impact as defined in Section 30.16.020(C)(2). upon public health or safety or the physical environment, and there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific adverse impact without rendering the housing development unaffordable to low- and moderate-income households. For the purpose of this subsection, “specific adverse impact” means a significant, quantifiable, direct, and unavoidable impact, based on objective, identified, written public health or safety standards, policies, or conditions as they existed on the date that the application for the housing development was deemed complete. e.

Affordable Housing Agreement and Senior Housing Agreement. Except where a density bonus, incentive or concession, waiver, parking ratioeduction, or commercial development bonus is provided for a market-rate senior housing development, the applicant shall enter into an affordable housing agreement with the City, in a form approved by the City Attorney, to be executed by the City Manager, to ensure that the requirements of this subsection are satisfied. The affordable housing agreement shall guarantee the affordability of the affordable units for a minimum of 55 years or a longer period of time if required by the construction or mortgage financing assistance program, mortgage insurance program, or rental subsidy program; shall identify the type, size and location of each affordable unit; and shall specify phasing of the affordable units in relation to the market-rate units. Where a density bonus, waiver, or parking ratioeduction is provided for a market-rate senior housing development, the applicant shall enter into a senior housing agreement and restrictive covenant with the city, running with the land, in a form approved by the City Attorney, to be executed by the City Manager, to require that the housing development be operated as “housing for older persons” consistent with state and federal fair housing laws. The executed affordable housing agreement or senior housing agreement shall be recorded against the housing development prior to final or parcel map approval, or, where a map is not being processed, prior to issuance of building permits for the housing development. The affordable housing agreement or senior housing agreement shall be binding on all future owners and successors in interest. 10. Design, and Quality and Location. a. The City may not issue building permits for more than 50 percent of the market rate units until it has issued building permits for all of the affordable units, and the City may not approve any final inspections or certificates of occupancy for more than 50 percent of the market rate units until it has issued final inspections or certificates of occupancy for all of the affordable units. b. Affordable units shall be comparable in exterior appearance and overall quality of construction to market-rate units in the same housing development. Interior finishes and amenities may differ from those provided in the market rate units, but neither the workmanship nor the products may be of substandard or inferior quality as determined by the city. c. In multi-family housing developments, the affordable units shall be at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the average square footage of all market-rate units with the same bedroom count. In single-family housing developments, the affordable units shall be at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the average square footage of all market-rate units with the same bedroom count, not to exceed 2,000 square feet. For all housing developments, the unit mix based on bedroom count provided for affordable units shall be proportional to the unit mix based on bedroom count provided for market-rate units. Examples are illustrated in the City’s guidelines. The number of bedrooms of the affordable units shall at least equal the minimum number of bedrooms of the market-rate units. d. Affordable units shall be dispersed throughout the housing development, on each floor, elevation, and section of the building(s) and throughout the site such that: i. No more than 50 percent of the proposed affordable housing units are consolidated into one structure in developments with more than one multi-unit structure, and ii. No more than 20 percent of affordable housing units in a single multi-unit structure may be located adjacent to each other or stacked on consecutive floors unless it is unavoidable due to the required unit mix and distribution, and iii. No more than 20 percent of the affordable housing units may be located adjacent to each other within single-family residential subdivisions. e. Affordable units shall have similar access to amenities as market rate units including but not limited to views and access to open space, and shall have similar protection from environmental impacts, including but not limited to distance from arterial and collector streets and from adjacent non-residential land uses. f. When a housing development proposes for sale and for rent units, the affordable units shall be dispersed proportionally between for sale and for rent units. g. The dispersion requirements of this subsection shall not be applicable if the affordable units are financed with low-income tax credits or consist of affordable senior housing. 11. Commercial Density Bonus. a. The following definitions shall apply to this subsection C.11: i. “Commercial development” means a development project for nonresidential uses. ii. “Commercial development bonus” means a modification of development standards mutually agreed upon by the city and a commercial developer and provided to a commercial development eligible for such a bonus under

When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling approximately $36,892.03 in the form of certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD.

ENCINITAS — The Grauer School hosts a virtual event with Dr. Gary Chapman, PhD, author of the “The 5 Love Languages”series on Zoom at 5 p.m. Jan. 12, as part of its “Great Conversations.” Chapman will speak on “T he 5 Love Languages of Teenagers: The Secret to Loving Teens Effectively” offering strategies to connect in meaningful ways with a teenager. Chapman will explain the key developmental changes your teens are going through and give you the tools to identify and communicate in a teen’s love language. He will discuss how to successfully navigate key issues in a teen’s life and leave with practical advice on how to support and love your teen. Register for this event at grauerschool.com /great-conversations. Chapman lays the foundation of the importance of unconditional love and takes parents through each of the love languages, through the lens of adolescence. Along with discussing the love languages, he will share practical ideas specific to teens and will help parents understand how love relates to a teen’s desire for independence and need for responsibility, as well as what to do when their teen fails. “Many parents believe that when their children become teenagers, they can continue to par-

ent in the same manner that has served them well in the child’s preschool and elementary school years,” said Chapman. “But this is a serious mistake because the teenager is not a child. They are in transition toward adulthood. Teens are going through a tremendous transition, and parents who will be effective in loving them must also make transitions in the manner in which they express their love.” “This is the world into which your teenager has come of age,” Chapman said. “The good news is that contemporary teenagers are looking to parents for guidance. Because of this, parents need to learn to meet their teenager’s need for love and lay the foundation for influencing their teen more effectively in all areas of life. “All research indicates that the most significant influence on the life of a teenager comes from their parents.”

Caltrans, SANDAG commemorate 2020 milestone year The Caltrans and SANDAG Build North Coast Corridor (NCC) Project team made significant progress even during the COVID-19 pandemic. The team kicked 2020 off with a halfway point celebration and ended 2020 with the final concrete pour to complete the underground foundation for the new I-5 San Elijo Lagoon highway bridge in Encinitas, and a lot of progress happened in between! In February, construction crews successfully shifted traffic to the I-5 San Elijo Lagoon highway bridge over Manchester Avenue. Motorists were diverted onto two new highway bridges to provide space for crews to demolish the original, 57-year-old bridge and rebuild the new interior. Construction on the new inside bridge foundation began in spring and was completed in early December. It has 22 support columns run-
ning 145 feet deep and eight support columns running 255 feet deep below ground level. The new bridge will be longer and wider to accommodate new Carpool/ HOV Lanes and increased tidal flows. In July, new sidewalks and dedicated bicycle lanes separated from traffic by concrete barriers were completed on the north and south sides of the I-5/Santa Fe Drive and I-5/Encinitas Boulevard undercrossings in Encinitas. Early collaboration between Caltrans, SANDAG, and the City of Encinitas also resulted in an added project benefit – a new public canvas for community art. Retaining walls lining both sides of the Santa Fe Drive street undercrossing feature 53 mosaic art panels commissioned by the City and designed by teams of local students from San Dieguito Academy and artists. In October, San Elijo
Lagoon Restoration project crews completed construction on two pedestrian bridges to create a new trail connection that extends southwest from the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center in Encinitas to a new rail undercrossing and Harbaugh Seaside Trails in northern Solana Beach. The restoration team also finished dredging operations throughout the lagoon and created new low-marsh, mid-marsh, and mudflat habitats for a variety of wetland flora and fauna, including near-threatened species. Orange Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA) fencing was removed, and crews successfully transitioned into the plant establishment and maintenance period of the project. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we deliver highway, environmental, bike and pedestrian improvements to the North Coast Corridor.
The project team is proud to deliver these important quality of life projects in 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, you can expect to see more progress along I-5, new bike and walking paths continuing to take shape as part of the North Coast Bike Trail and lagoon connectivity, and first steps toward developing the Manchester Avenue Park & Ride/Multi-Use Facility. Please remember to “Drive 55 on the 5” in the Build NCC construction zone and that traffic fines are doubled in construction zones. Motorists also must Be Work Zone Alert, Move Over a lane when safe to do so, slow down and do not enter construction zones. From our construction family to yours, we wish you a safe, healthy, and happy new year! For more information, please visit KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/BuildNCC.
Fentanyl, heroin, speed and oxycodone: The Devil’s Drugs the patient advocate
Phillip Milgram, MD
orry, fear, boredom, anxiety, loneliness, escapism, insomnia; these are the emotions that plague our society. The plague that is COVID is making these human imperfections more frequent and more pronounced. There are healthy effective ways we can not only deal with these feelings and situations. But it is human tendency to take an immediate and effective way to escape: The Devil’s Drugs. They are readily (too readily) available. There is easy access to someone who can promise you the gates of heaven. You are invincible. And you want it now. From a friend or family member who has some. Or from a prescriber who will prescribe, sometimes inadvertently but often as a legitimate dealer.
Hey, maybe it‘s even covered by your insurance. Maybe you know somebody who knows someone who can get it for you in a park or a parking lot. Trust me. You are not invincible. These are not your grandparent’s drugs. These synthetic drugs have a high addiction potential. I don’t think they should have ever been released to the public, like Quaaludes. You give these drugs to a thousand white mice…
and a thousand whit mice will be pushing that button for more. Physiologically, we are not dissimilar from a white mouse. They use these same white mice to test the drugs and extrapolate to human consumption. WE WANT MORE OF THAT!! These drugs cause what is known as hyperalgesia. Let’s say you stroke the hairs on your arm with a feather. These drugs make a stimulus that would be a tickle or an unpleasur-
able event and convert it to pain. What do you do? I WANT MORE OF THAT!! Then you develop tolerance to the drug. Until you rapidly, sometimes within days, need more to get you to that place where you want to be. And you then know. I NEED MORE OF THAT!! We have been very successful treating alcoholism and drug addiction to heroin, opiates with our innovative and experienced team and the magical molecule of NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide), which detoxifies and fixes your brain, relieving withdrawal symptoms and cravings with much greater regularity than your neighborhood rehab center. But these are The Devil’s Drugs. And they require an all out and effective therapeutic approach to avoid the gates of hell; loss of your job, your family, your money, your home. And finally you lose yourself and then you lose hope. Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonipen, Ativan, Ambien and the sort) are not a good solution. You solve a problem by creating another problem.
But prescribers too readily whip out their prescription pads to give you a stopgap that may be as bad or worse than the original problem. Please don’t take Kratom either. Often the addiction to Kratom is worse than heroin. Unfortunately, it is readily available and touted as “natural.” When you are addicted to Kratom, you may be suffering such terrible withdrawals that you have to use through the night every two hours. The best way to avoid this whole situation is to not allow these drugs into your body. Avoid them all-knowingly because I have here told you of their power, their danger, and the high percentage for your physiologic tendency as a normal human being to succumb to the power of these drugs. But it is human tendency to think you are different, stronger, better, even invincible. I WANT TO FEEL IT, NOW!! We have an alternative therapy here in Carlsbad, with the magic molecule (NAD+) that is already present in every living ani-
mal and plant cell. And that the body naturally uses to detoxify, heal, pump up immunity, and create new neural pathways that results in less cravings, less withdrawal symptoms and a high degree of long-lasting sobriety, health, longevity and wellness. We help restore restful sleep, use additional therapies, and get you on the road to a new life free from the influence of these drugs. NAD+ is the magic. There is an art to the administration of it—starting with the best NAD+. Then there are therapies that enhance and propagate the NAD+ effect. Then, once off the drugs, you need to deal with the emotional, physical, depression, anxiety, any underlying mental disease, situation, and establish an ongoing program of healthy nurturing lifestyle. There is such a thing as recovery, let us show you. Dr. Phillip Milgram is a board-certified physician in practice for 40 years.

SOLANA BEACH – A booming tech company headquartered in Solana Beach, says they are committed to supporting and investing in the community long term, but must first face a decision by the Solana Beach City Council on whether or not they can expand. Founded in 2014 by CEO Oren Zaslansky, Flock Freight (formerly AuptiX) has quickly become one of the fastest growing startups in the U.S. The company creates shared truckloads out of less-than-truckload (LTL) freights using software and data science. In other words, it offers a way to pool shipments that are going in the same direction to use one truck. This reduces the volume of partially loaded trucks on the road, which saves on fuel and is more time efficient. This revolutionary idea has allowed Flock to be the only freight company in the world that has achieved B-Corp status, meaning it meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, because it has the potential to create a 40% reduction in greenhouse gases in the U.S. In late 2017, Flock Freight moved into the second floor of 240 Cedros Ave., the former home of the store LOTUS. The building and Lotus are both owned by Trilogy

Investment Group, a commercial real estate firm. “We made a conscious decision that we wanted to be a part of the coastal North County community. I grew up in Leucadia and Encinitas, and I understand the value of the coastal North County as a worldclass market to find extraordinary talents,” Zaslansky said. “I forewent all sorts of investment opportunities to start this company in Silicon Valley and decided not to do it because we wanted to be here.” After LOTUS permanently closed due to financial hardships brought on by COVID-19, there was an opportunity for Flock to expand into the first floor of the building. Michael Marks, CEO of Trilogy Investment Group, told The Coast News that
when the Lotus building was originally built, the council required the owner to maintain 50% of the store as a retail use. The exception is if the owner of the building were able to find a Corporate Headquarters, which can only proceed by securing a Director’s Use Permit (DUP). Trilogy has decided to move forward with trying to secure this permit in order to allow Flock to expand, but is, surprisingly, facing some resistance. “They think that all retailers need to flock together… in the past that worked, but the world is changing,” Marks said. “If you look at UTC or One Paseo or any of the new projects, they realized that you need the whole ecosystem. You need to have residential, office
and retail all working together to create something that will succeed.” Marks and Zaslansky agreed that Flock’s 80 to 100 employees that work out of Solana Beach are probably the biggest contributors to the Cedros community, especially during the pandemic. “We spend more money than anyone in Solana Beach, particularly on food and beverage. We also have all sorts of local vendors and we’re always buying local. Throughout COVID, not only have we not laid a single person off, we’ve created 50 jobs,” Zaslansky said. “We want to pay fair rents and we want to spend a ton of money around town.” Another issue that might be a concern for the council is parking, but Zaslansky assured The Coast News that expand-
ing to the first floor means acquiring a second parking lot, which would fit almost all of its employees. He added that Flock is willing to invest in a valet parking system to guarantee that employees won’t fill up the street parking around Cedros. However, if the council denies the permit and refuses to let Flock expand, they will leave Solana Beach, according to Zaslansky. “We’ve had up to eight closures on the street, and then just across the bridge we have multiple businesses filing for bankruptcy or closing,” Marks said. “The council needs to recognize that there are a lot of people that are hurting out there and those people are surviving because of Flock Freight… these are employees who are spending a lot of money on the street and
they are creating a lot of sales tax revenue. We need them.” The City Council is expected to vote on this issue in early 2021. Solana Beach residents can help save Flock Freight’s corporate headquarters on Cedros Ave. by emailing the members of the Solana Beach City Council.

Historic Vista Mural undergoes restoration By Steve Puterski
VISTA — Tucked away just off Vista Village Drive rests a painted history of the city and a world record. Since its completion 15 years ago, the Vista Historical Mural is showing its cracks, which is why Steve Thomas re-commissioned artist Clayton Parker to restore a portion of the artwork to its former glory. The mural runs 546 feet along Vistacado Lane between North Indiana and Michigan avenues, spanning nine businesses, and is recognized by Guinness World Record as the longest continuous mural in the world. The flowing mural connects Vista’s past as its present zooms by in cars and trucks along Vista Village Drive. “There was old, rotted wood, there were doors that were never going to be used with our configuration and it was an eyesore,” Thomas said. “We tracked him down and he knows all the history. When I heard that history, it was, ‘You have to protect this.’” Parker, 70, and retired after 50 years, came back after Thomas contacted him to tell him of his plans to restore his work. Thomas recently purchased the corner business and is renovating the inside and will open the Barrel & Stave Pour House early next year. After Thomas bought the property, he was at a crossroads of what to do with the mural as it was falling apart. But two people who stopped to gaze at the mural told him how unique and that it was historic, which led Thomas to learn about the history of the mural. The mural tells a bit of the city’s history, starting with the Luiseño Indians, the city’s deep Mexican culture, callouts to the 1950s and ’60s, plus more. It inspired Thomas to act to reactivate the mural. As for the building,

bricks were missing and have been replaced, the rotted wood and doors replaced or eliminated as Thomas is restoring the exterior of the building as well. Parker, meanwhile,
explained the history behind the commissioning of the mural, which began in 2001. He was tapped by the city and it took one year of research and planning to finalize the mural.
After Christmas Jewelry Sale Celebrating 43 years in Encinitas
“We had some of the oldest living residents in Vista, got together and they brought photos,” Parker recalled. “We pieced together an authentic timeline from the Luiseño Indians to the
avocado growth. I did a long sketch that I had to show the City Council that wrapped around the chambers.” But there were deeper challenges, as corralling nine independent business owners and selling them on the project was tough, Parker said. He said several had “beefs” with the city for a variety of issues, along with doubts about the project, but eventually, they all came together. The city and business owners greenlit the project in 2002, but Parker had clients all over the country and wouldn’t abandon them to solely work on the mural, a point he made clear when he was recruited. Perhaps one of the most endearing parts of the legacy, Parker said, is the mural has never been defaced. No graffiti or “tagging,” which he said shows respect between artists, even for those who cross over the law.
here is mud, fur, a pooper scooper and dog toys scattered around my house. There will be dog treats under the Christmas tree. But do not think for a minute that I own a dog. I do not have a dog. My daughter and her sweet husband, who currently reside with us, have a dog. I’m not sure how this happened, but I put the blame squarely on the COVID-19 epidemic. I have to blame something. I had been steely in my resolve to ignore my adult child when she regularly mentioned wanting a puppy. My retort was, “Get rid of your three cats and we’ll talk.” She had a puppy when the kids were young, so I am not a true villain. And because we had dogs, and I was the only one who fed or cleaned up after them, I was adamant no four-legged hair-thrower would cross my threshold again. But then she cried. Yes, it’s embarrassing I still turn to jelly when my daughter cries. This episode made it blindingly clear I have no spine and never will. It had been a difficult week in quarantine, and she was making daily plans to move to New Zealand. Making me think the dog might be on another continent soon further weakened my resolve.

Nearby missions worth adding to post-COVID must-see list hit the road e’louise ondash
ne of the perks of being a fourth-grader in California is the chance to visit one of the state's 21 historic missions. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, though, most missions are closed to visitors until sometime in 2021. When they do reopen, North County residents won't have far to go to
explore one. In fact, we are situated near three of the 21 missions. In order of their founding, they are Nos. 1, 7 and 18 — each unique but possessing a commonality of heritage and purpose. Some missions are working parishes; one is a historic state park and a working farm; many are museums or have a museum; one sits next to a considerable fault, and an earthquake has destroyed more than one. Each mission has a story to tell — one that mixes colonial expansion and competition; religious fervor and secularism; blood and bat-
tle; tenacity and enterprise; demolition and decay; and restoration, rebirth and controversy. The accomplishments of the Franciscan friars who established the missions are notable. But we can't ignore their domination of Alta California's indigenous peoples. There has been much criticism of the 2015 canonization of Junipero Serra (1713-1784), the priest who founded the first nine missions. Critics charge that he and other priests forced the area's indigenous people to labor involuntarily and to convert to Catholicism. Today, our three nearby
missions are beautifully restored— two can be reached via public transportation. Take the Amtrak, San Diego Trolley or Metrolink, and you'll expand your adventure. No. 1 — Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala in San
Diego's Mission Valley was founded in 1769. Spain sent Franciscan friars and soldiers from New Spain (Mexico) to establish a foothold in Alta California and slow the Russians’ southward advance. Some of the buildings' architectural features are original, and the large, formal garden has hundreds of plantings, many at least a century old. Check reservation policy. Adventure: Take the Coaster to Old Town, transfer to the Trolley's Green Line, and exit at the Mission San Diego stop. No. 7 – Mission San Juan Capistrano in the Orange

Colorful architecture and mature landscaping — massive trees, vines, flowers and succulents. No. 18 – Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, 4050 Mission
Ave., Oceanside, is known as the King of Missions because it's the largest of the 21. Founded in 1798, historians say it also was the most economically successful mission. At one time, Mission
San Luis Rey owned 22,010 cattle, 23,532 sheep, and more than 8,000 horses. In 1846, Kit Carson and Captain Stephen Kearny visited the mission; the following year, the Mormon Battalion arrived. The army of 550 men had marched 2,100 miles from Iowa to join the U.S. Army during the Mexican-American War. Even though the church is closed, you can look through the open door, see California's oldest pepper tree, and walk through the peaceful, leafy historic cemetery.

to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale. If
the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice To Potential Bidders: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you
consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. Notice To Property Owner: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (877)4404460 or visit this Internet Web site www.mkconsultantsinc. com, using the file number assigned to this case F20-00078. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
DEC. 25, 2020
Notice To Tenant: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction, if conducted after January 1, 2021, pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (877)440-4460 or visit this internet website site www. mkconsultantsinc.com, using the file number assigned to this case F20-00078 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid, by remitting the funds and affidavit described in Section 2924m(c) of the Civil Code, so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.* Notice To Potential Bidders: We Require Certified Funds At Sale By Cashier’s Check(S) Payable Directly To “Assured Lender Services, Inc.” To Avoid Delays In Issuing The Final Deed.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or
deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-9390772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www. qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-19-863062-SH. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: For sales held on or after January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 916-939-0772, or visit this internet website http:// www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA19-863062-SH to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the sale is set aside for any reason, including if the Trustee is unable to convey title, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid to the Trustee. This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.

Will 2020 be like 1918 and bring new art movements? cal art news Bob Coletti
he Norwegian painter Edvard Munch produced art inspired by the Spanish Flu of 1918. Beyond Munch’s’ famous painting “The Scream,” he also painted two flu-related compositions, entitled “Self-Portrait With the Spanish Flu” and “Self-Portrait After the Spanish Flu.” They were both attempts on Munch’s part to convey his own experience contracting the disease and surviving it. Munch’s obsession with the dark side of life formed a relationship with those who suffered during a
pandemic that killed at least 50 million people. In his own words, “Illness, insanity, and death kept watch over my cradle and accompanied me all my life.” The flu of 1918 influenced all things of the time, including art movements. At the same time World War I was raging, along with other world disasters. The rise of communism and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire added a perception of universal chaos and depression. With this came a loss of faith in governments, social structures and basic values. New art movements were created from this time of tragedy in hope of finding a new sense of reason and justice to believe in. Along came the Dada movement with its focus on the absurd. Dadaists created a new form of art that was
EDVARD MUNCH’S “Self-Portrait After the Spanish Flu.”
like nothing ever before. Collage art became popular at this time, with artists dealing with the horrors of World War 1 and the Spanish Flu by means of cutting, reassembling and remixing as if to change the world in this manner.
Well known in his time, artist George Grosz painted “The Funeral.” It was a horrid depiction of distorted human figures one on top of another situated on a endless city street scene. Dead center is a skeleton on top of a coffin drinking from a bot-
tle. Described by Grosz as a hellscape, and a procession of the inhuman. He claimed to have painted it in protest against a humanity that had gone insane. Dadaism’s “all is lost” theme was quickly followed by the Bauhaus movement, which was more of a utopian path created by artists who wanted to build a new world to clean or sanitize the old. Architect Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus School in Weimar, Germany, in 1919. Their goal was to combine art and design by training students to reject the ornate and create art that was practical and useful in everyday life. Marcel Breuer, founder of the Bauhaus in 1920 designed furniture that historians believe was influenced by the flu. Breuer’s minimalist pieces were made of hygienic materials
and extruded steel, able to facilitate cleaning and were lightweight and movable. His Wassily Chair and Long Chair met modern sanitary needs by being easy to clean and disinfect. There was no question, the rise of modern architecture was influenced by events of the Spanish Flu of 1918. Abstract art joined the other new movements offering the viewer a way to escape reality. Abstraction defined the times with its new non-objective, non-realistic art departing from the horrors of what was going on worldwide. The 1918 flu pandemic was an inescapable part of its time and culture. And now today’s COVID-19 has become the tipping point of our time. Who can know how the current obvious shift in culture will affect art and art movements to come.
Orphan kitten pulls off miracle escape By Staff
RANCHO SANTA FE — With the help of some friends, a two-month-old kitten pulled off an escape worthy of a Las Vegas magic act. The little feline was discovered trapped in the walls of a Lancaster home and was later named “Houdini” by staff members upon arriving at Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe. Now, thanks to a homeowner unafraid of breaking through some walls, and the dedication of a passionate 16-year-old, Houdini has made it to Helen Woodward Animal Center and is on her way to pulling off the best trick yet — finding a forever home.
In mid-November, a family had become unsettled by constant quiet meows coming from somewhere within their home. They searched every room, cabinet and awning and finally realized that a kitten was trapped with- HOUDINI in their walls. “It’s hard to say how it occurred,” said Tracy Woodworth, assistant manager at Helen Woodward. “It’s a very tiny kitten and its mother may have been carrying it along the roof or near a crack in the wall.
If it fell and slipped in, the mother wouldn’t have been able to retrieve it.” It is also not clear how long the kitten was trapped but its desperate cries signaled that there was no time to delay. The homeowner began breaking through the walls, finally reaching the kitten who was dehydrated and malnourished but rescued in the nick of time. Houdini is now available for adoption. For more information on Houdini and other available orphan pets at Helen Woodward Animal Center, contact the Adoptions Department at (858) 756-4117, ext. 1, or visit animalcenter. org.
on painfully nipping at you. She is not at all tempted by food, and views such offerings with high suspicion. However, once I gave her a spoonful of peanut butter, she believes I am required to give her a treat any time I step into the kitchen. She does this by staring at me until she runs out of patience and then she begins to vocalize with wails, moans and barks in a loud and hilarious fashion. I have never had a dog talk to me like that. This Christmas, my house will be adorned with chewed up twig bits, dirty paw prints and rags damp with her post-water-dish drool. She will probably have her own stocking and, no doubt, other things I find absurd. But one look at her adorable, wolfish face and I will probably get over it. But remember, I do not own a dog.

ou’d have to have been under a rock for the past nine months to be unaware that the pandemic and business restrictions have wreaked havoc on the hospitality industry. According to the National Restaurant Association, one in six restaurants will close or has already closed nationwide. I recently saw an unofficial list of San Diego area breweries and restaurants that have already closed permanently had nearly 100 names on it. Less obvious might be how many workers that really impacts. Every hospitality business, be it a dive bar or chain of brewpubs, has waves of employees coming in and out. Cleaning crews, kitchen staff, prep employees, servers, bartenders and so on. There are delivery drivers, window cleaners, cooler repair persons and just so many more. At the Pacific Beach BBQ joint I managed, we had about 35 employees at any given time and dozens of vendors employing many more. Even when businesses have been able to open for dining in 2020 — outdoors or partially indoors or takeaway only — the number of employees needed to work each day has been cut drastically, leaving a lot of hospitality workers out of work, with less work and less protections than the typical nine-to-five. Shannon Lynnette, 20plus year industry veteran and manager of the Tasting Room and Hospitality at Burning Beard Brewing Company in El Cajon saw so many her industry friends and colleagues struggling. In her words, “hanging by
a very tenuous thread, and wavering in financial peril.” She started an event on social media for hospitality and hospitality adjacent employees called In the Weeds, soliciting basic needs donations and thinking she probably wasn’t alone in wanting to help. The response was so great it has grown into the In the Weeds Facebook Group offering support to those in need. According to Shannon, the aim is simple: “If you are in this industry and your income has been affected by the multiple closures, bring me a bag and I will fill it up with what I’ve been able to amass. Essentially, if you are in need and I can help — I will.” If giving is noble, this commonsense simplicity to Shannon’s efforts make it doubly so. These things don’t happen alone. Thorn Brewing has become a pickup, drop-off and delivery contributor. When asked why they wanted to be involved, Thorn’s Tom Kiely said, “Most hospitality businesses have been closed or barely open for nine months. That’s not just detrimental to the businesses, but the people too. Sustained unemployment breeds food insecurity. Many friends and colleagues aren't sure where their next meal is coming from, and Shannon wanted to do something about it. … “Thorn and Burning Beard have done lots of events together in the past,
so she hit us up to help. We have tasting rooms in North Park and Barrio Logan plus a robust county-wide home delivery program so we could help out with logistics.” Jen Mann (aka @MsBeerCraft), a local photographer, has been using her extensive network to make connections to help with donations, and bring attention to this community support effort. “The real special thing about this program is that it’s friends helping friends,” she said. “We must understand that there’s all different levels of what someone might need during these tough times. For some it might be a meal, and for others it might be meals. “For some it could be finding out how or where to get health assistance or free/low-cost mental wellness help. Even sharing how to make a recipe that could stretch during these times, or tips on where to buy inexpensive diapers, [or find] restaurants offering free kids meals, or pharmacy gift cards to pay for a prescription.” In the Weeds Hospitality Aid group just partnered with Valley Farm Market in Spring Valley to provide 250 holiday meals earlier this week. And the need for aid won’t be going away while the pandemic is still raging. Even with a vaccine on the horizon so many hospitality jobs have already been lost, and with the current shutdown likely to last well into 2021 there are a lot of people in the indus-

try who could use a helping hand. In the Weeds Hospitality Aid is doing what they can to ease the struggle by offering discreet donations of food and basic supplies. You don’t need to be an industry member to join the group or ask for help. Just someone who might need an extra hand for the moment. The hospitality industry is fiercely supportive of each other. I’ve spent almost my entire life involved in it somehow, and this show of community is one of the reasons so many of us find ourselves working in service even years after we thought we’d left for good! For my friends, family and colleagues in the hospitality industry I hope this column finds you happy, healthy and comfortable this holiday season, but if you are in need know that there are those reaching out a helping hand.
t’s been a while since I’ve featured a local business in a Lick the Plate takeover column but when I first saw a beautiful Sanford Shapes skateboard and learned they were based in Leucadia, I had to follow up. Sanford Shapes is a local family business producing stunning artisan cruiser skateboards. Robby, Josh and Ethan Sanford, along with close friends Connor Dougherty and Brett Naudin, are the backbone of the operation. Numerous other friends have become key players in the company and are a valuable part of the team as well. The venture began in 2013 when, as young teenagers, they started to experiment with building skate decks. Uncle and aunt Don and Cari Sanford, who own Sanford Builders in Leucadia and have a stateof-the-art woodshop, helped launch the endeavor. I hung out with some of the Sanford team recently and besides being blown away by their amazing boards and business smarts, of course the conversation turned to food. For a lunch break from the shop, or after-surf meal, here’s where the Sanford crew can often be seen eating around town: Josh Sanford favors Nectarine Grove, Birdseye
Kitchen and Jimbo’s as some of his favorite spots. “After a long surf session, I need something really filling but healthy and quality. I either get the pizza, or a burger [at Nectarine Grove] and it hits the spot. I also love Birdseye Kitchen as Thai is my favorite type of food. I usually get either a yellow curry or a Pad Thai. It’s hard to leave out Jimbo’s the health food/grocery store as their sandwiches and hot food are amazing, healthy (all organic), fresh, and a great value for the price.” Nice picks Josh, I can’t get enough of Birdseye either! Operations guy Robby Sanford follows his brother’s lead in taking the healthy road. “I’m definitely into eating healthy and organic so I’m a regular at all the health food spots in Encinitas. In the winter, there’s nothing better than some Pad Thai from our local Thai/Vietnamese restaurant Birdseye Kitchen. Along with my brother Josh, I frequent Nectarine Grove where I typically get the Chimichurri Steak Bowl. Everything on their menu is spectacular, all organic and natural ingredients and lots of great paleo options.” A double shoutout from Josh and Robby for Birdseye Kitchen and Nectarine Grove, love it! I was waiting for one of the crew to mention Mexican food and marketing guy Connor Dougherty came through with Serranos Mexican. “I’ve eaten my way TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON B15

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Handle a potentially awkward situation by warming up your confidence reserves and letting it radiate freely. Also, expect an old friend to contact you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s not too early for the practical Bovine to begin planning possible changes for 2021. A recent contact can offer some interesting insights. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A request for an unusual favor should be carefully checked out. Also check the motives behind it. Your generosity should be respected, not exploited. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Party time beckons, but for some Moon Children, so do some workplace challenges. Deal with the second first, then you’ll be free to enjoy the fun time. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A warm response to an earlier request might be a positive indicator of what’s ahead. Meanwhile, Cupid could pay a surprise visit to single Leos looking for love. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) How you respond to a proposed change in a project could affect your situation. Be prepared to show how well you would be able to deal with it.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The revelation of a secret could cause some changes in how to deal with a workplace matter. It very likely also validates a position you have long held. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An attempt to get too personal could upset the very private Scorpio. Make it clear that there’s a line no one crosses without your permission. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The savvy Sagittarian might be able to keep a family disagreement from spilling over by getting everyone involved to talk things out. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Be careful not to push people too hard to meet your ideas of what the holiday weekend’s preparations should be. Best to make it a cooperative, not a coerced, effort. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An unexpected request could make you rethink a position you’ve had for a long time. Meanwhile, plan a family get-together for the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Someone might find that it was a fluke to try to use your sympathetic nature to get you to accept a situation you’re not comfortable with. Good for you. BORN THIS WEEK: You like challenges that are both mental and physical, and you enjoy always beating your personal best. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
