‘Blue Wave’ crashes ashore in North County

The North County has been a reliable bastion of support for the Republican Party over the years, but as 2018 dawned, talk of changing demographics and dissatisfaction with the current presidential administration put the region’s political future in the balance. Nationwide, pundits predicted that a so-called “Blue Wave” would prove to be a repudiation of the Trump administration’s politics. North County became

In 2017, protesters began the longest running demonstration of its kind as they picketed outside of Issa’s office for more than a year. Those protests paid dividends, as in one of the first victories of the “blue wave” movement, Issa announced his resignation in January. But the movement was just getting started.

SOLANA a total of eight hours of deliberation, view assessment proceedings and public comment, the City Council approved the Solana Highlands revitalization project at a Dec. 17 hearing, albeit with a number of conditions. The project proposes bulldozing the current Solana Highlands apartment complex and constructing 260 units — 62 more than what RANCHO currently exists on the site — and 525 parking SFNEWS spaces on the 13.4acre lot off of Nardo and Stevens avenues. Thirty-two of those units would be reserved for low-income senior residents. The council voted unanimously to approve the project, with now former Councilman Peter Zahn absent. The approval process involved certifying the project’s final environmental impact report, approving its development review permit, structure development permit and vesting tentative parcel map, as well as its affordable housing plan, density bonus, waiver of development standards and a related fee waiver. The hearing began on Dec. 5, but after five hours of deliberation and public comment, the council opted to extend the hearing to Dec. 17. In the meantime, staff were able to address unanswered questions and pending concerns posed by council members and residents at the Dec. 5 hearing. After many residents opposed the magnitude of the project during the first round of public comment, the staff report clarified that “State Law provides no authority for the

At Ada Harris Toy Fair, SDUHSD to focus on communication, a doll with a message student wellness, fiscal health in ’19 By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Every year at Ada Harris Elementary School, the sixth-grade students deliver a dose of ingenuity, imagination and amazement with the end-of-semester reveal of their self-designed toys at the Ada Harris Toy Fair. But this year, two girls, Emily Jones and Keira Vanderlip, went beyond the cuddly stuffed animals, board games and sports equipment and delivered a toy with a strong message. Their offering: the “Tiny Feminist Doll,” a sew-it-yourself doll with the faces of important women’s rights figures, including Susan B. Anthony, Molly Brown and Sally K. Ride. “My Tiny Feminist is a doll that you sew together with your parent or guardian, while having meaningful conversations about what a feminist is and how they changed history,” Emily said, reading from her prepared pitch to people visiting the girls’ toy booth. “We decided not to go with something they do every year,” Emily said. “We decided to go for something beyond that, a toy that is role model.” Watching her as she gave her presentation was Emily’s mother, Kristen Jones, who said she attended last year’s Women’s March in San Diego, and has encouraged her daughters to have a strong, yet gentle voice. Her reaction to her daughter’s toy concept? “I am ecstatic, over the moon how she sees the need for change and she’s trying to be a positive gentle leader into a movement,” Jones said. “I think it is so important for our kids to grow up in a world where they don’t have the struggles we had in the past, where the norm is a kinder, gentler world than we had in the past.” Teachers at Ada Harris said that the boundaries broken this year are indicative of the progress the students have made with their fair offerings, the fair being in its sixth year. The annual exhibition marks the culmination of a semester-long project in which the students — alone or in a group — must create, build and market a toy prototype. The project touches on multiple disciplines, including mathematics (the students had to show in graphic form how they arrived at their price point), writing (each student had to write a letter to a CEO of a major toy or department

store pitching their product) and, of course, design and engineering. More important as the finished product is the process, teachers said. The students had multiple deadlines along the way to show their progress, and received guidance from teachers to help evolve their concepts. Then, on the Thursday afternoon before holiday break, the students line the sixth-grade hallway and sixth-grade classrooms with their toys, presentation boards, homemade commercials on iPads and their sales pitches. “It’s kind of taken on a life of its own,” said Matt Jewell, a sixth-grade teacher who helped create the concept for the school in 2013. “Some of these kids have seen the toy fair in third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade and in sixth grade they start with an idea, and there is a lot of work that goes behind the scenes to get the project from concept to reality. It’s a fitting capstone to the end of the first part of the year.” Jewell said that one of the areas where the kids have gotten stronger over the years is developing prototypes earlier with rudimentary tools before refining them into the finished products on display during the fair. “They have had a lot of chances to reflect on what’s working and what’s not and refine their designs and feel pretty good about them,” he said. Kelly Whelihan and Kali Bogart, who created a life-sized board game called “Pizzazz,” said the toughest part about creating the board was creating the materials. But the final result, the girls said, was gratifying. “How hard it is to make a toy, it’s really hard you have to go through a lot of steps,” Kelly said. “It’s hard because you have to make it durable but you have to make it fun for all ages. “Now I know how proud toymakers must feel when they finish,” she said. “When it goes on the shelves they must be like, ‘Hallelujah!’” Kali added. The kids also learned other valuable lessons, such as teamwork and time management, which they said they hoped to pass along to the fifth-graders just down the hall. “I would give them advice to get along with your group, and pick a group that you would know you would get along with,” sixth-grader Rae Randall said.

REGION — As we approach 2019, Dr. Robert Haley, who has served as superintendent of San Dieguito Union High School District since Nov. 1, shared his top three goals for the district in the new year. Haley wrote, “I want to continue to meet with as many school community members as I can to learn more about the strengths of the district, the challenges of the district and areas of focus for me as the new superintendent. “I want to continue to support the Board of Trustees in developing strong board governance through workshops and key agenda items on our upcoming board meeting agendas. Finally, I want to work on improving communication throughout everything we do as a district.” Haley took over for Larry Perondi, a retired and longtime educator who served as interim superintendent after Eric Dill resigned at the end of the last school year. Leadership turnover has also extended, in a less substantial way, to the five-member board. Two new board members, Melisse Mossy and Kristin Gibson, were sworn in on Dec. 13. Three incumbents returned to their seats, including Joyce Dalessandro, who has served on the board since 1996. Two focal points at the last meeting centered on students’ social and emotional wellness and the district’s finances. San Dieguito has started to more publicly discuss and focus on its students’ social and emotional well-being in the wake of a student suicide, a student death and a suspected case of self-harm at Canyon Crest Academy this year. The main takeaway for Haley of the two suicide-prevention workshops that the district hosted this November in the aftermath of those incidents was “our need to name the issue rather than hide from it out of fear.” Haley continued, “Suicide is hard to say, but we need to say the word if we want to talk about making people more aware and to prevent it as best we can.” Echoing that sentiment, Gibson shared at the Dec. 13 meeting how the workshop leader, Stan Collins, drilled home the idea that families should talk about suicide rather than

avoid the subject. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 24, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gibson said Collins explained, “We talk to our kids about drugs; we talk to them about smoking; we talk about alcohol abuse; we talk to them about wearing seatbelts in their car. And this is something we never talk about until it happens.” The district wants to create awareness that “social emotional wellness is something that needs to be infused in our school cultures and in our school community,” Haley stated. “We are developing and beginning to implement age-appropriate curricu-

lum in classrooms,” he added. On the financial front, the adopted budget for the 2018-2019 school year showed a projected deficit of $3.7 million, but the first interim budget — a financial report required every December by the California Department of Education — shows a larger projected deficit of $7.8 million. That larger deficit came in spite of $3.9 million more in revenue than was previously reflected in the adopted budget. When asked via email about the greater projected shortfall and whether Haley felt that the district was on track financially, he wrote that “school finance is complicated with how the cycle works” and offered to discuss the situation in

more depth with The Coast News in 2019. Haley did explain that the adopted budget only reflects revenue and expenditures for the current year, while the first interim budget includes unspent revenues from the prior year. Those carryover funds “have a specific purpose and have to be spent accordingly,” Haley wrote. Nonetheless, the first interim budget qualifies as “positive” based on the way that the California Department of Education evaluates budgets. “A positive budget means that the District can meet all of its financial obligations for the current and subsequent two fiscal years, by maintaining its 3% [reserves] and having a positive cash flow,” Haley explained.

his problem is more than 100 years old: When it comes to safety, California’s Public Utility Commission coddles the big utility companies it regulates, sometimes to the detriment and death of the companies’ own customers. Way back in 1915, state legislators passed a law requiring the Railroad Commission (renamed the PUC in the 1940s) to assure “protection of employees and the general public.” But the commission waited 13 years, until 1928, to make actual rules, most of which were never enforced. More recently, the Legislature in 2016 passed a law demanding regular reports on electric line safety, especially in likely fire areas. But consumer lawyer Michael Aguirre, the former elected city attorney of San Diego, says he has not been able to get the PUC to reveal whether it hired any inspectors since passage of that law, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Jerry Hill of San Mateo. Déjà vu, a century later. “They should have been inspecting all along … but they have admitted they did not prioritize this,” Hill said in an interview. “I believe the PUC didn’t think this was all that important, and so didn’t do it. They will stonewall wherever they can.” Meanwhile, in lawsuits filed after last fall’s deadly Woolsey fire burned more than 1,000 homes in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, the Los Angeles law firm of Panish, Shea & Boyle claimed Southern California Edison Co. has maintained a “run to failure” safety policy. Under that system, the law firm charged, “the utility

Del Mar to assess rezoning By Lexy Brodt

DEL MAR — Faced with ever-growing demands to remedy a deficit in housing, the City Council started taking the early, necessary steps Dec. 17 to expand the uses of two commercial zones to include a housing use. The city’s certified housing element requires the city to add this zoning use, which is deemed appropriate to support affordable housing. At the meeting, council directed staff to move forward with a work program and environmental impact report to study the impacts of adding a 20 dwelling unit per acre residential zoning use to the current allowed uses of the north commercial and professional commercial zones. The north commercial zone skirts the San Dieguito Lagoon and includes 14 properties. It is currently zoned for commercial and light manufacturing uses. The professional commercial zone includes four properties along Camino Del Mar between 8th and 9th streets, and is currently designated for office uses. Resident Arnie Weisel, who spoke during public comment as a representative of the Del Mar Hillside Community Association, found the 20 unit/acre zoning use for the north commercial zone to be a “massive devi-

ation” from the surrounding area, which is largely occupied by single-family homes. “Under this proposal, I imagine a lot of these places selling out, being changed drastically, in exchange for what would be a far more economically attractive high-density housing,” Weisel said. Several city residents took greater issue with a proposed action to also consider a residential zoning use for the public facilities zone, which includes the post office, the city’s new civic center, Shores Park (including the Winston School), and the library. City staff were incentivized to bring the possibility to council because it could be added to the environmental impact report at no extra cost, and would allow the city to look at a broader range of options. Dena Harris, head mistress of the Winston School, was the first to speak out against the potential inclusion of the Shores Park and the Winston School. “This sends a mixed message to us,” Harris said, pointing out the school’s 55-year lease agreement reached with the city in 2008. Laura DiMarco, who spoke on behalf of Friends of Del Mar Parks, said the area has been explicitly designated for school purposes through a deed restriction

on the property. “You cannot violate the gift, the intent, the deed restrictions, and the intent of the donors in preserving the only school site and parkland available for our children for playing fields,” she said. Council voted 3-2 to include the public facilities zone in the EIR analysis, but to exclude any analysis of Shores Park. Councilwoman Terry Gaasterland voted against the motion, on the grounds that she could not support a consideration of the library, Shores Park or the civic center. Mayor Dave Druker was also opposed. “I think we have determined in some ways that (the public facilities zone) is not a spot where we want to put residential use in,” he said. “We don’t need an EIR

to figure that out.” Resident Traci Martinez implored the council to “think outside the box” when it comes to affordable housing, and address more scaled-down options. “I think the developers love this time right now, because they can do these massive developments under the guise of giving a tiny bit of affordable housing. And I think we can do better than that,” she said. The city’s Affordable Housing Mitigation Code calls for development proposals of 10 units or more to set aside 20 percent of the new units for rental to low-income households. By including affordable housing, developers in the state can ascertain a density bonus, which allows them to up the size of their projects.

The city of Del Mar currently has no affordable housing units, and is mandated by its housing element to accomplish 22 affordable units in this cycle, and 60 units total — whether affordable, market rate or above market rate. The city’s “22 in 5” plan, a document that out-

lines the city’s options for affordable housing and aims to accomplish 22 affordable units by the end of 2021, provides potential scenarios for use of the north commercial and professional commercial zones. One scenario posits that if 50 percent of the comTURN TO REZONING ON A7

‘Gerr’: The genuine article waterspot

urfing from when I started in the early ‘60s until now is a totally different sport. I was still surfing eight days a week, but was already one of the older guys trying to live up to standards that had been set by those who preceded me. Phil Edwards, Mike Hynson, Skip Frye and Donald Takayama had set the bar too high for even the best of my generation to hurdle over. My generation did the same thing, but, in spite of us, ‘80s surfboards were then into their second decade of shorter, lighter and faster, and we were left in the wake of the new kids. I still recall the day when I was checking out the surf in Cardiff and a 13-yearold kid approached me. He said his name was Brad and suggested I write an article about the grommets. He was self-assured and I knew who he had in mind, but decided to ask anyway. “Well there’s me and Kenny Clemmons and Todd Martin and …,” he hesitated before adding his name to that short list again. Amused but unconvinced I told him I would think about it, before I walked away and forgot all about Brad and his proposition. About a month later Swami’s was experiencing a big north swell and there was Brad, sitting behind the peak and making some hard turns before hammering his

I did a story on him, and continued watching from a distance as his surfing matured to the point that he was soon among the best in the state, then the nation and finally, the world. He had just turned 18 when he beat all the top pros and won a major pro contest in Oceanside. This was followed by his first full year on tour where his fierce surfing led to the nickname “Gerr.” Rising quickly in the ranks, he finished second in the world one year. Then, right at his peak, when he was well positioned for a world title, he surprised everyone by dropping out of full-time competition. Those are the bullet points that look good on the resume.

Surfing is generally considered a young man’s game, and while Gerr had made his name in waves under 10 feet, the then 35-year-old rewrote history when he and his tow-in partner Mike Parsons rode the biggest waves anyone had ever attempted at the time, in an assault on Cortez Bank on Jan. 19, 1991. Now 52 years old, the North County raised Brad Gerlach continues to make waves. Adding to his phonebook-sized resume, Gerr now lists himself as performance coach and father.

CUSD upgrades to go in phases By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Within 10 to 12 years, every school in the Carlsbad Unified School District will have been modernized or upgraded in some way. Measure HH, the $265 million school bond passed by voters in November, is set to modernize classrooms and facilities at each of the 16 campuses. The focus, according to Superintendent Dr. Ben Churchill, is to create classrooms and workspaces to prepare students for jobs of the future. Security and energy sustainability are also folded into the bond, but the primary priority is to allow students spaces geared toward their future. Not to mention, many of the schools are aging or have only had minor upgrades over the course of their lifetimes. Phase one construction is expected to begin in June 2020. “Look at your roof … at a certain point it’s going to fail,” Churchill said. “They only have a 40-to 50-year lifespan and school buildings are no different.” The district spends $3.5 million per year on “routine” maintenance, but those fixes can’t and don’t prevent long-term wear. The latest bond will cover each school and the district office in five phases, with the district office being in the fifth phase. Hope, Kelly and Magnolia elementary schools and the Carlsbad High School science building and chiller will be covered in phase one. Phase two will upgrade Aviara Oaks Elementary, Buena Vista and Jeffer-

City to reduce the Project’s density.” The state’s density bonus law stipulates that a developer is entitled to a density bonus and certain waivers of development standards if they provide affordable units. In H.G. Fenton’s case, designating 15.5 percent of its units as low-income allowed it to request and receive a 53-unit bonus on top of what the current zoning permits. The city also granted the developer increased maximum building, retaining wall and fencing heights, as well as a $500,000 waiver, to fulfill “the need for financial assistance related to the provision of 32 low income (senior) housing units,” according to the staff report. Seven new speakers addressed the council on Dec. 17, with nine residents opting to speak a second time following the Dec. 5 hearing. Resident Mary Hobson protested the density bonus, while other residents spoke against the project’s request for a fee waiver. “(Density bonus law) basically means they can disregard most sensible zoning laws,” Hobson said. “Ironically, when it is done, 32 seniors will indeed have affordable housing, yet the

190 or so people that live there now will likely not be able to afford the new rents.” Speakers implored the council to consider concerns regarding parking, traffic-calming measures, landscaping, and the potential negative effects of construction such as noise and air pollution. In order to address comments regarding the monetization of parking and how it might affect an already morose traffic and parking

situation on Nardo Avenue, city staff revised the resolution to ensure the applicant would not charge for parking spaces — though the resolution would not prohibit higher rent for apartments with designated garages or carport parking spaces. The city addressed three view claimants who opted to take their claims before the council after they were denied by the View Assessment Commission. The council overturned the com-

mission’s decision regarding Nardo Avenue resident John Wilson’s view claim, and proceeded to outline conditions requiring the developer to lower a building in Wilson’s view corridor by six inches, and tame any vegetation that would potentially block his view. The city tacked on several additional conditions: requiring that there be no demolition or rough-grading on weekends, that notifications for noise complaints be

son elementary schools plus Valley Middle School. Phase three consists of Carlsbad Village Academy, Pacific Rim and Calavera Hills and Aviara Oaks middle schools. In phase four, Calavera Hills and Poinsettia elementary schools, Carlsbad High School will undergo work as well as minimal improvements to Sage Creek High School. The cost estimates total $88.8 million for phase one followed by $71 million for phase two, $40 million for phase three and $72 million for phase four. Assistant Superintendent Chris Wright said much of the work will be a “down to the studs renovation,” which will feature students using semi-permanent (relocatables) structures during construction. The major renovations at schools such as Hope, Kelly and others, include creating more permanent classrooms, science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) spaces, HVAC, makerspace, parking and traffic flow and core facilities upgrades, to name a few. A STEAM lab will be included in every elementary and middle school. “We’re revamping the classrooms to meet the needs and our core facilities to make sure they’re sized appropriately for our enrollment,” said Kelly Fleming, director of facilities and construction management for the district. One challenge is anticipating enrollment needs, which is why some relocatables will remain on campus, but more permanent rooms will be constructed. Wright said the district

doesn’t want to overbuild due to high permit construction costs, which is why some relocatables will remain in place. “Permit construction is expensive,” he said. “Every campus will have some of those because you can put them on to accommodate enrollment, but should enrollment shrink … you want to be able to pull those off and not touch your permit construction.” With the addition of the Robertson Ranch and Quarry Creek developments, Hope and Kelly will see an influx of students once those families move in. Churchill said the district’s demographer is in tune with all the city permits, developments in progress and works with builders to understand when those projects will be ready. “It’s a math exercise more than anything else,” Churchill said. “We look at the high-density low-incoming housing, the single family and duplexes … the demographer gives us the numbers and we make the changes.” The district got a head start on its charge forward before the bond was passed. Architects and contractors were secured to head off the competition, especially the $3.5 billion school bond passed for the San Diego Unified School District. “We certainly wanted our ducks in a row,” Wright said. “Over the past few months, we did a parallel effort … in terms of contracts. We wanted to be first on the market and have the pick of the litter for the services we need.”

sent out within a 500-foot radius of the project, and that the project be constructed in one, 24-month phase. Other conditions include removing fencing previously planned for a park area, requiring pre-wiring of all garages on-site for electric vehicle charging, relaxing overnight parking conditions for electric vehicle spots, and allowing residents of the senior low-income housing units to use the complex’s pool amenity. Council and staff anticipated addressing certain issues further down the pike, such as the project’s traffic calming measures and landscape plan. At the end of the lengthy proceedings, Mayor Dave Zito thanked the audience for their participation and engagement. “I think the end result is something that hopefully our community will be excited about,” Zito said. The hearing marked the last major council decision for now former Councilwoman Lesa Heebner, who retired from her post for the second time just two days after the hearing. Heebner said the project is a good example of the community “really coming out, speaking their mind and providing really good, constructive input to the council and developers,”

and credited the developers with intuiting community concerns. “The realities of the state density bonus law were understood for the first time by the community,” Heebner said. “They saw that their council was able to condition the project in a manner to address as many of the negative impacts as possible.” Heebner anticipated it could be several years until the city sees the final product of its deliberation: the project will require a final stamp of approval by the California Coastal Commission. H.G. Fenton released a statement to The Coast News after the council’s decision: “We are grateful to the Solana Beach Council and to so many members of the community for their input and support. We look forward to building a revitalized Solana Highlands of which the whole community can be proud. Solana Highlands is an important source of multi-family housing in Solana Beach and we are honored to be able to revitalize it. “The result will be a more attractive, functional and environmentally sustainable apartment community that will provide needed homes to many Solana Beach residents including low-income seniors.”

New council members take their seats By Lexy Brodt

SOLANA BEACH — Nearing the end of what Mayor Dave Zito called a “very momentous year,” Councilwomen Kelly Harless and Kristi Becker took over the two vacant seats left by former council members Lesa Heebner and Peter Zahn on Dec. 19. Heebner and Zahn were both appointed to the council in April after the sudden resignations of former council members Mike Nichols and Ginger Marshall. Both Heebner and Zahn served prior terms, and had stepped down from their council seats in 2016. In a moment of déjà vu, Heebner approached the podium to receive gifts from council members and say a second round of departing words. Zito recognized Heebner for bringing her experience to the council, joking that he purposefully wore the same outfit as the last time Heebner stepped down, a la “Groundhog’s Day,” in the hopes that “maybe I’ll be fortunate enough to serve with you again.” “I kind of suspect if you had known what you were getting into, you may not have decided to do it,” Zito said, referring to the near nine months of Heebner’s term in which the city begrudgingly underwent redistricting, launched its own community choice aggregation program, endured a lively debate on roundabouts, and approved the Solana 101 and Solana Highlands projects — the latter just two days before Heebner and Zahn’s retirement. In a phone call with The Coast News, Heebner described the past year as a

councilwoman as “intense,” but also “kind of fun.” She said one of the reasons she came back to the council was to “make sure (Solana 101 and Solana Highlands) were done right, and we got what we needed for our community and for the developers.” She also enjoyed mentoring Councilwomen Jewel Edson and Judy Hegenauer — who were both first-timers to the council when they were seated in 2016 — and supporting Harless and Becker in their campaigns. Heebner served 12 years on the council prior to her most recent stint, while Zahn previously served a four-year term. Although Zahn wasn’t present at the meeting, he sent a video to thank his fellow council members and city staff and offer a piece of outgoing advice: “act boldly.”

“Resist the institutional pressure to toe the line and play it safe,” he said. “Change can be scary to the people who we serve; but real progress, real improvement in people’s lives, seldom occurs without it.” Zahn reflected on a contentious season of politics — particularly the “hurtful accusations” dealt via campaign mailers by an out-oftown Political Action Committee during the months leading up to the election. “I hope these practices along with the electoral districts we were forced to create, don’t deter people from stepping forward and participating,” he said. Dave Zito was once again appointed mayor after he took on the position in June. Jewel Edson will be deputy mayor. Becker and Harless were sworn in and seated as new council members. Beck-

er won 35.10 percent of the vote, or 3,886 votes in November, with Harless following close behind with 32.77 percent of the votes, or 3,628 votes. In an email to The Coast News, Becker said one of her top priorities as a new council member is to implement measures laid out in the city’s Climate Action Plan. She also looks forward to working with community members to find a potential suitable use for the .7-acre parcel north of La Colonia Park purchased by the city this year, and to help negotiate a development at the city’s train station that “will fit the area, support the business district, and enhance the character of our community.” Becker anticipates one of the biggest hurdles ahead for the city will be the Del Mar Resort, and taking steps to help mitigate the project’s potentially negative impacts. Harless is honing in on development concerns, looking ahead to coming decisions on a residential care facility proposed for a vacant lot on Genevieve Street, and continuing to work with developers on the Solana Highlands revitalization project to ensure that looming decisions on factors such as landscaping do not have “unintended consequences.” She plans to work closely with residents to ensure they are “feel(ing) informed and empowered.” “I’m looking forward to what I think will be a more positive year,” Harless said. “ … I think there’s some political fatigue going on, and people are ready to move past the negativity.”

mately amend their zoning. The same requirement does not apply to the public facilities zone. “That train, for better or for worse, has already left the station,” Worden said. Council unanimously approved moving forward with the work program and EIR. The EIR is to be conducted by a hired consultant, RECON, and the city’s work program would involve outreach to potentially impacted property

owners, and drafting an amendment to the city’s community plan and local coastal program. Councilwoman Ellie Haviland, in response to resident concerns regarding the zoning updates, said that the city’s “22 in 5” looks at parcels “all over the city,” not just those in the north commercial and professional commercial zones. “We don’t have any other choice but to do that. If we try to go back on our cur-

rent housing element, all we have to do is look north to Encinitas, and see all of the legal trouble they’re having,” she said, referring to a recent ruling which ordered the city of Encinitas to adopt a legally compliant housing plan within 120 days. “Every city struggles getting housing elements passed, and then implementing them. The state is becoming less and less permissive of cities that don’t follow through with their plans.”

Housing, Streetscape to top Encinitas headlines in 2019 By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Encinitas residents will be having a feeling of deja vu in 2019, as many of the same issues that dominated headlines in 2018 will once again be front and center. That’s because many of the top headlines — the Leucadia Streetscape, the housing element update and the proposed staircase at Beacon’s Beach — were unresolved by year’s end. Here are some of the top story lines that readers should expect to see unfold in 2019 1. Who will replace Tasha Boerner Horvath? This one is low-hanging fruit, but a critical decision that faces the council in January. The four members of the City Council have agreed to appoint the fifth member, keeping with the tradition of recent council vacancies. But with four moderate-to-liberal leaning officials comprising a super-majority, Mayor Catherine Blakespear and the council are faced with a decision — select someone in line with super majority’s views or someone who represents an alternative viewpoint. Several names have emerged for the fifth seat, including mayoral candidate John Paul Elliott, planning commissioner Kevin Doyle and longtime Leucadia 101 board member William Morrison. 2. The Housing Element Cycle A judge has given Encinitas 120 days to certify an update to a state-mandated affordable housing plan, and has nullified Proposition A — the citizens’ right to vote initiative — for the current housing cycle. This means the council will ultimately cast the deciding vote on the housing element, in which the city must plan for about 1,600 units of affordable housing. Opponents of the city’s failed housing element attempt, Measure U, are hopeful the council will adopt a plan that reflects some of their objections to the failed 2018 ballot measure and suggestions to

improve it, but the council isn’t required to implement those suggestions. 3. The 2021 Housing Element Cycle Weren’t we just talking about deja vu? Well, city officials must quickly turn around following their adoption of the current cycle’s plan and craft a new plan for the next housing cycle, which begins in April 2021. If city officials were hard-pressed to find locations suitable for the 1,600 units required under the current housing cycle, meeting its next regional housing needs assessment will be yet another challenge. In this case, however, the City Council will have to go before voters once more, as the nullification of Proposition A only applies to the current cycle, the judge ruled this month. 4. Will the city start the Leucadia Streetscape? The crash that critically injured Cardiff 101 Executive Director Roberta Walker has galvanized supporters of the North Coast Highway 101 Streetscape into action. Walker was one of the project’s biggest supporters. But will that action result in an accelerated timeline to start the project? Questions still remain on how the project — with its $30 million price tag — will be funded, and whether North County Transit District will give the necessary clearance for the project to move forward. Mayor Catherine Blakespear has been adamant that she wants interim measures in place to make the road safer for cyclists and pedestrians, but her plan received push back from allies who believe stop gap measures would take pressure off of NCTD and give project opponents ammunition against the project. If all breaks in the city’s favor, could this be the year the long-discussed project begins? TURN TO ENCINITAS ON A23

Oceanside program works to improve life, promote liberty By Samantha Taylor

OCEANSIDE — For 10 years, Life of Liberty has been serving adults with developmental disabilities while also encouraging independence among its participants. Also known as LOL, Life of Liberty was created by Debra Howard, who now serves as LOL’s chief executive officer and president. Howard has a passion for the population her program serves, which includes those diagnosed with intellectual, cognitive, mental and physical disabilities. That passion didn’t always exist for Howard. Before moving to California, she worked as a coroner and an EMT in Georgia. When she moved to California, she wanted to do something different. She began working with severely emotionally disturbed (SED) teenagers before joining a program similar to LOL as its director. When she later left that position and went back to working with SED teenagers, she realized her passion. “They are a population There are three compoof individuals who have been for so long neglected,” nents to the LOL program: Wola Nani, a Xhosa word she said.

sends educators to the LOL facility to teach the participants. LOL also assists participants with job searching. The facility has a computer lab where participants can apply for jobs and a room where they can try on and prep themselves for job interviews. LOL staff will conduct mock interviews with the participants and will help them determine if they have the right skillsets needed for their desired jobs. Howard said LOL staff lets the participants decide where they want to apply for work. A few participants are employed with LOL, such

as Sergio L. and Marlem R. (LOL policy dictates that participants can only be referred to by their first name and the initial of their last name). Sergio, who takes the Lift service to LOL from Escondido every day, works the program’s front desk. Marlem vacuums virtually the entire facility. Sergio said LOL has helped him to “move around” and learn time management. “I have to be ready for work, I have a time to clock in,” he said. When Sergio first became a participant five years

ago, he couldn’t read. That’s no longer the case for him thanks to the services LOL provides. Marlem improved her English skills through the program. “It’s really rewarding when you see that you literally made a difference,” Howard said. Howard explained that allowing the participants to make their choices empowers them — even if that means they make a mistake or two. “They are capable of so many things that we feel that they’re not, so it’s natural for us to want to help them,” she said. “But you’re not doing them justice or doing them a favor.” Successful independence is the core of what LOL tries to ensure for its participants, according to Chief Executive Administrator Gerald Hampton. “We try on a daily basis to ensure that when participants come in they have a good day or that we make their lives better,” he said. “The reality is I think they make our lives better because of the interactions we have with them.” Both Hampton and Howard said there is never a day that they dread coming into work. Their passion for the population they serve plays a big part in that. “If you’re doing something that you’re passionate about, that makes it even better,” Hampton said. Having a passion for those LOL serves is essential to the program’s success, according to Howard. “You have to love this population to work with this population,” she said. “It’s emotionally demanding and it can be physically demanding at times… you have to be

caring and compassionate, and you better be patient.” Howard praised her staff members who work with participants on a daily basis. “If it weren’t for (staff’s) contribution, LOL would not be the program that it is,” she said. “I could sit here in this office and create every policy there is and implement it, but if the staff members do not feel that they are really appreciated, if they do not have that genuine respect for the participants, then the success of this program would not be what it is today.” Future goals for LOL include revamping its website and improving its social media presence, Hampton said. He added that Howard is looking into establishing a Life of Liberty Foundation as a non-profit entity, and researching local residential programming possibilities and expanding LOL’s services to Northern California.

This truly marked a generational shift in the electorate in North County, the reverberations of which will be felt for some time.

North County cities grapple with environmental issues

“housing crisis,” North County elected officials and residents continue to clash over state requirements for added housing and concerns over the impact of housing on traffic, noise and the character of the respective communities. The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved several controversial developments, citing its desire to ease the housing crisis in the region. The approvals of the Newland Sierra, Valiano and Harmony Grove Village South projects came in the face of fierce opposition from community leaders and residents alike. A group spearheaded by the Golden Door Spa successfully collected enough signatures as part of a referendum to rescind the county’s approval. The Supervisors, however, have placed the question before voters Housing issues in 2020. roil region In Encinitas, a Superior Court judge has intercedAs the state continues ed in the city’s years-long to grapple with a so-called attempt to come in compli-

ance with state housing laws following the voters’ rejection of yet another proposed housing element update, Measure U. The judge has given Encinitas 120 days to adopt an affordable housing plan certified by the state after invalidating a local proposition that requires such plans to be voted on by the people. The judge’s ruling, however, doesn’t apply to future housing element updates. In Del Mar, the city has found itself in a battle with the California Coastal Commission over an ordinance regulating short-term vacation rentals. The city passed an ordinance that would limit rentals of less than 30 days in nearly all residential zones to minimum seven-day stays for no more than 28 days a year. The Coastal Commission rejected the ordinance, arguing that it was too restrictive and would impact tourists access to the beach, and adopted in June a plan that would allow vacation rentals for a minimum of three consecutive days for no more than 100 days a year. The following month Del Mar voted 3-2 to reject that decision and opted to let the courts determine who has land-use authority in the county’s smallest city. And in the region’s largest city, Oceanside, voters rejected a controversial ballot measure, Measure Y, or the Save Open Space and Agricultural Resources (SOAR) Initiative, which would have made it more difficult to turn farmland into housing developments.

The immigration debate hits home

In the lead up to the June primary elections, the state’s so-called “sanctuary city” status became a flashpoint of controversy, and several communities jumped head on into the skid. The Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 in April to support the Trump adminis-

tration’s lawsuit against the state and three of its immigration laws. Carlsbad’s City Council voted to oppose sanctuary cities a month later, and reaffirmed it a month later against a throng of residents urging them to reconsider. Thousands of residents in North County participated in a rally in Carlsbad protesting the Trump administration’s policy of separating children of illegal immigrants. Several elected officials actively campaigned around the topic of illegal immigra-

It’s no surprise that environmental headlines would dominate our coastal region, and this year was no different. Encinitas moved forward with a plan to ban plastic straws from restaurants, and also became the first city to in the region to adopt a “gold standard” climate action plan that hinges on the city adopting community choice energy with its North Coastal neighbors. Those cities — Oceanside, Carlsbad and Del Mar — will all be watching tiny Solana Beach, as it carries the mantle of energy independence from SDG&E with its fledging CCE effort, which is experience “growing pains.” Oceanside officials began hearing from a group of residents, who are taking cues from Encinitas and other locals, who want the city to also ban plastic straws in restaurants. Tiny Del Mar stood up to the Coastal Commission rejecting managed retreat as an option to combat sea level rise in its climate action plan, which is setting up a major battle that will no doubt play itself out in 2019. Encinitas kicked off its “Living Shoreline” project in Cardiff-by-the-sea, which includes a series of manmade dunes that will protect Coast Highway 101 from flooding during storm events but also provide habitat for native species. And in Carlsbad, after 64 years, the Encinitas Power Station, one of the infamous landmarks along the San Diego coastline, was retired on Dec. 11.

Cannabis controversy continues

Cities across the region continued to grapple with the realities of Proposition 64 — the landmark 2016 statewide initiative that legalized personal recreational cannabis use — and cannabis regulation. In Encinitas, the council deferred on deciding the fate of cannabis in the city until 2020, when citizens

will vote on an initiative to allow and regulate cannabis storefronts, deliveries and manufacturing and cultivation. The city recently deferred a decision on whether to allow deliveries until the state decides whether it will allow such deliveries statewide, which would render local intervention moot. Solana Beach voters will also get a chance to weigh in on the cannabis debate, as the council decided to put the question of cannabis storefronts to voters in 2020. In Vista, voters legalized medical marijuana sales by approving Measure Z, despite the outcry from the largely conservative City Council. On the eve of the election, the city of Vista brought a five-count misdemeanor criminal complaint against a group which has spearheaded fundraising efforts for Measure Z, alleging various campaign finance violations. The Oceanside City Council, after months of debate, voted to approve medical marijuana deliveries. Expect this topic to continue to lead local headlines in 2019 and beyond.

Leucadia dominates headlines

Known as a sleepy surf town, Leucadia was alive with controversy all year, with some of the biggest — and in some cases, quirkiest — headlines throughout our pages. The single biggest controversy involved a planned transformation of the community’s main drag, North Coast Highway 101, by way of the Leucadia Streetscape. A group of neighbors formed an organized opposition, lining streets throughout the community with signs that read “One Lane: Insane,” referring to the plan to shrink the street from four lanes to two between Leucadia Blvd and La Costa Avenue. The group also sued the city to stop the project. But the plan was endorsed by the City Council and Planning Commission and competing group of supporters, who argued that the street as configured imperils pedestrians, cyclists and is bad for local businesses. And in October, the California Coastal Commission unanimously endorsed the project. Two months later, one of the project’s most ardent supporters, Roberta Walker, was critically injured when a truck struck her will she was riding her bicycle during the early morning hours on Dec. 8. Walker’s accident has galvanized the efforts to accelerate the start of the project. Residents were also up in arms over a plan to build a staircase at their beloved Beacon’s (or Beacon, depending on who you talk to) Beach, to supplement — and ultimately replace — the beach’s iconic switchback trail. Supporters of the project argued that the project was necessary to protect beach access, as the bluff above the switchback could collapse and destroy it at any moment.

At the same beach in September, 13-year-old Keane Webre-Hayes suffered traumatic injuries when he was bitten by a great white shark while lobster hunting. Keane’s injury became a national story, and later the city of Encinitas honored him and the Good Samaritans who were credited for saving his life with a proclamation in honor of their bravery and life-saving efforts. And finally, from the “wait, what?” files, Leucadians were in an uproar when they found out that an apparel company had trademarked the community’s name, and sent out ceaseand-desist letters to local T-shirt makers who were using the name on their clothing. In one case, a letter targeted the T-shirt company that has been printing Leucadia brand shirts for nearly four decades. The company behind the lawsuit threats, Flashbuz, dropped the letters in response to the community outcry. Several residents said they plan to sue to reverse the trademark.

Tri-City Medical Center was front-and-center in the news, but in June, when the public hospital announced plans to “suspend” its inpatient psychiatric facilities, the region responded in an uproar. The hospital cited costs and a recent change in federal regulations requiring hospitals to remove from rooms all features that patients could use to hang themselves, known as “ligature” risks, for the need to suspend the activities.

Mental health and suicide prevention were at the top of awareness this year following the deaths of celebrities Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and our reporter Kelli Kyle outlined the ongoing suicide prevention efforts throughout North County. At Canyon Crest Academy, these discussions hit home the hardest, as the student body was left to grapple with two student deaths (one a suicide) and an injury that was possibly the result of self-harm. The events happened within a short period of time of each other, leading to questions of how these incidents could happen and what should be done about them.

Del Mar Gun Show suspended

Amidst rising nationwide concerns about gun violence — following mass shootings at a Florida high school, video game competition and a Thousand Oaks nightclub — activists in Del Mar have pushed to end a gun show that has been held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for the past 30 years. The 22nd District Agricultural Association Board — which runs the fairgrounds on behalf of the state — elected to suspend the show for the span of 2019, until a new policy concerning the gun shows could be drafted. Controversy also arose over the show’s operators and his criminal record. The

year for a couple of reasons. First, after nearly 10 years of planning, California Pacific Airlines finally launched commercial service from McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad. The airline services four cities with plans to expand to two more, but two days of cancellations in December, and passengers stranded in Pierre, South Dakota, over Thanksgiving, rocked the company. And then, the Board of Supervisors approved a controversial update to the airport’s master plan, which prompted a residents group to sue the county over what they say was a flawed environmental impact report. The city of Carlsbad is also considering legal action, in a story that will likely play itself out in the new year.

The failure of Proposition 6

The region became ground zero for the fight for Proposition 6, a statewide initiative aimed at repealing the so-called “gas tax,” Senate Bill 1. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill in April 2017, which raised gas taxes and vehicle registration fees in an effort to tackle the state’s infrastructure backlog. The architect of the “Yes on 6” campaign, former San Diego Councilman Carl DeMaio, staged a series of “cheap gas” rallies in Encinitas, Carlsbad and elsewhere to raise awareness of the repeal campaign. In Julian, a group of Caltrans contract workers came under fire for allegedly campaigning against Prop. 6 on duty, as activists filed a complaint with the state Fair Political Practices Commission against Caltrans. The FPPC confirmed the investigation in September. A number of conservative lawmakers — notably congressional candidate Diane Harkey and Escondido Mayor Sam Abed — latched their campaigns to the gastax opposition. Still, other groups actively campaigned against Prop. 6, arguing the boost to infrastructure spending outweighed any added burden caused by the increase at the pump. Voters statewide agreed with opponents of the repeal and rejected Proposition 6 in a stunning 55 percent to 45 percent rebuke. Carlsbad recently celebrated the expansion of its carpool lanes along I-5 — funded by SB1.

Youth team, San Diego Sockers share special bond By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — When the San Diego Sockers hosted their home opener Dec. 15 at the Pechanga Arena San Diego, hundreds of children donning red and white jerseys cheered them on from the stands. Several of those kids then took to the pitch during halftime as part of the halftime entertainment. The kids are part of the Cardiff Mustangs, a competitive and recreational soccer program in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. And their presence in the stands and in the halftime show is the product of a unique bond between the Sockers — the nation’s premier professional indoor soccer franchise — and the club, forged several years ago by chance. Today, Sockers captain Kraig Chiles is the director of the Mustangs program and a number of the team’s players coach the club’s 22 competitive girls and boys teams. In 2011, however, Chiles was the Major Arena Soccer League’s rising star, and coaching a youth team wasn’t on his radar — until a persistent parent asked him to sign a ball for his kid’s birthday. That parent was Dan

Van Dyck, a Mustangs board member, who was hoping to redeem himself after failing to sign his son up for a birthday shout out at a Sockers home game. “I was playing in a Sockers game when this parent, Dan, annoyed me for a soccer ball for his son’s birthday, and I was like, ‘Dude, I’m in the middle of a game,’” Chiles recalled. “But later, I walked the ball up to his son, Cody. A week later, he emailed me, like, ‘you have to come up and do this clinic.’” Van Dyck recalls the fateful meeting with a chuckle. He said that he wasn’t “hip to the birthday shout out,” so he didn’t realize he was supposed to sign Cody up. Realizing it after it was too late, he said he saw Chiles, who was injured, and approached him about signing the ball. “I told him that my 7-year-old would lose his mind if you could get him a ball and say happy birthday to him,” Van Dyck said. Sure enough, he said, Chiles brought Cody a ball signed by the entire Sockers team. A week later, he said, he tracked him down through social media and made the pitch about coaching a clinic. Chiles said at the time,

four years into his professional career, he wasn’t ready to coach, but he eventually relented and did a clinic. “It was a blast,” Van Dyck said. “We did a season of clinics, it was amazing

and the response was great from the kids and the parents.” Beyond that, Chiles said, he saw a soccer club that had potential for growth. “Here was this rec pro-

gram without a real competitive branch above it, it was in this fantastic area in San Diego, had this huge field being developed (Encinitas Community Park), and I thought, ‘Dude, this would be a nice place to build a club,’” said Chiles, who grew up in San Diego County and graduated from Poway High and San Diego State. From there, the connection between the Sockers and the Mustangs was born. Today, the club has grown from just two competitive teams to 26 boys and girls programs from ages 8 to 18, and the kids receive top-notch coaching from players from the Sockers’ main and developmental teams. “If you have good coaching, players will come out,” Chiles said. While not quite the size of powerhouse programs such as Albion Soccer Club in San Diego, or the Carlsbad Galaxy to the north, Chiles said the program has a reputation throughout the region for quality, disciplined soccer teams, and players that are able to compete at the collegiate level. And the players, in turn, show their gratitude to the coaches by support-

ing them at their games. The halftime show is one of many times the Mustangs players have been featured at Sockers games. “I’d put (their attendance at home games) up against some of the bigger clubs in San Diego,” Chiles said. “It’s fantastic, we’re with them on Tuesdays and Thursdays and they get to see if we are practicing what we are preaching to them. You see them show up Saturday, and as a player, it holds you accountable when you have 100 families watching you play thinking about what you are telling them as players and how you are performing and your actions on the field.” Of course, it helps the kids, too, as the Sockers are the most successful indoor soccer franchise in the country, winning 14 indoor titles in its history. Chiles likens the club to the “New York Yankees” of indoor soccer. But on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Sockers players aren’t the Yankees. They are “coach.” “It’s why we do it, it’s fulfilling as an individual to help mold and develop some of these young players and to help them get to where they want to be, on and off the field,” Chiles said.

Sports France next Chargers in playoffs, which poses problem for some for young sports tennis star talk

T

SOLANA BEACH — Katherine Hui, A Santa Fe Christian Schools eighthgrade student, has achieved one of four spots in the playoffs at Les Petits As (Young Aces) USA. She’ll now go on to play in the Les Petits As Jr. International Tournament in France in January. As it stands, Hui is one of the top 10 best female tennis players in the nation for her 14-year-old-division age group. According to Caitlin Clark, a Santa Fe Christian spokesperson, Hui has had an incredibly strong season. Hui She started off the year in January at the USTA National Level 3 Tournament in Irvine, successfully making it to the quarterfinals. In May, she won the championship title for the Girls 14 division at the USTA National Level 2 Tournament in Roseville. She later went on to win the tennis championship title in her division (Girls 14) in the prestigious Zimmerman National Tournament at Stanford University in September. It is a highly competitive group of young athletes, as only 16 players nationally from each age group are selected to compete. Following that big win, Hui participated in the Les Petits As USA playoffs in October, where the top 16 nationally ranked girls played in New Jersey. Hui was one of the top four who qualified to compete in January 2019 at the Les Petits As Jr. International Tournament in France — the most prestigious 14-and-under tennis tournament in the world. In fact, many US Open players have participated in Les Petits As during their junior careers. Sponsored by Lacoste, it is held in Tarbes, France, every January. Having just returned from the USTA National Camp in Florida last month, Hui said, “The past tournaments have really motivated me to keep on pushing myself and working harder to reach my goals.” So far in 2018, she has competed in eight national tournaments, with a winning average of 73.9 percent. She competed in nine national tournaments in 2017, seven in 2016 and six in 2015. Hui lives with her family in Santaluz and has a younger sixth-grade sister, Margaret, who also plays competitive tennis, and is also one of the top junior players in Southern California.

he Chargers are playoff-bound and what’s the harm in tagging along? If it was only that easy, this tug-a-war with emotions on whether to cheer for the NFL outfit that once called “San Diego” home. It’s not simple for some people, and they’ll pass on the Chargers and that’s fine. Trying to tell consumers where and when to spend their money was always miscast in my eyes. But if you want to hiphip-hooray for the Chargers, even with them hanging their shingle in Los Angeles, go for it. If you aspire to be a hate-hate-hater of everything associated with Dean Spanos after the team’s owner ripped away a franchise that dominated the San Diego sports scene here for nearly six decades, have at it. But it’s the players on the field that I gravitate toward. To me, they are the real Chargers, not the guys

jay paris in the luxury suites sipping on top-shelf social sparkers and munching on catered meals. Give me the sweaty men with dirt under their knuckles, guys with knees that buckle seemingly every day except Sunday for three hours, players that stiff-arm pain and longterm health ramifications so we can enjoy a game. So if the Chargers (114) have performed well enough to be invited to the postseason, good for them. Good for the Spanos family, too? I don’t know many people that go there and I’m one of them. What the Spanos clan and the NFL did to the dedicated Chargers boosters in San Diego was and is a crime.

But what’s nearly a bigger travesty is making the playoffs one time in eight years. What a blemish to have such a lousy track record with Philip Rivers at quarterback. Rivers, who drives through Rancho Santa Fe every morning headed for work, will retire someday. Although the way the 37-year-old is producing, he isn’t ready for his gold watch yet. But he will be fitted for a gold Hall of Fame jacket on the horizon, and that the Chargers’ brass let the sun set on way too many seasons without giving him a chance for a Super Bowl ring is embarrassing. Some ex-Chargers fans get red in the face that their old team is succeeding. But instead of getting miffed, I get a kick out some good guys getting their due. Rivers is the most accessible superstar in the NFL and he’s as solid as his Southern accent is thick. He didn’t move the Chargers.

Antonio Gates is another future Hall of Famer and one could sense his pain after his fumble killed the Chargers’ final shot of beating the Ravens last week. He didn’t move the Chargers. That goes for countless anonymous employees, the nuts and bolts, if you will, of any organization. Whenever you see coach Anthony Lynn entering or leaving the field, Bill Stetson is on his hip. Stetson, the team’s director of security lives in Escondido. Whenever a ducat is delivered to a fan, it probably first crossed the desk of Michael Dougherty. Dougherty, the team’s director of ticket operations lives in Carlsbad. The NFL gave its blessings to heist the Chargers out of San Diego. But taking the “San Diego” out of the Chargers hasn’t proven as easy, which is why there’s a drinking contest on game days whenever the announcer stumbles in

claiming they hail from San Diego. It’s done so often, those participating seldom go thirsty. While for many it’s tough toasting the Chargers, we raise a glass. Not to the powerful men arriving at the misguided decision to leave San Diego, but to the men who toil in the trenches, that have their shoulders separated to casually be popped back in and to those who’ll walk with a limp for rest of their life. The Chargers, who finish the regular season on Sunday at Denver, will either be the AFC’s No. 5 seed, or the No. 1 seed, with a win and a Kansas City Chiefs loss or tie to the Raiders. So if you’re among those cheering for the Chargers, then you’re pulling for the Raiders, too. Crazy, huh? Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him @jparis_sports

Nonprofit provides legal services for immigrants By Lexy Brodt

REGION — For the immigrant community in San Diego, navigating the country’s complex legal system can pose a difficult, and sometimes insurmountable barrier. And because of their economic status, age, or their detention at a border facility, many are not able to easily access an attorney. Casa Cornelia seeks to fulfill that need. A San Diego-based nonprofit, the 25year organization provides free legal services for those eligible for humanitarian immigration relief in Southern California. According to Executive Director Carmen Chavez, Casa Cornelia serves asylum-seekers, victims of crimes such as domestic violence or human trafficking, and children who have been abandoned, abused or neglected. The nonprofit has served about 2,200 people so far in 2018, and about 300 in the North County region. The North County Amnesty International Chapter honored Casa Cornelia in early December with their Digna Ochoa Humanitarian Defender award, which recognizes an individual or group for their work protecting human rights in the North County community. Casa Cornelia is assisted in its efforts by between 200 and 300 volunteer attorneys, volunteer interpreters and translators at any given time, from across San Diego, which allows them to “multiply exponentially our reach to all corners of the county,” Chavez said. The organization supports a full-time staff of 28 individuals, nine of which are attorneys. Chavez referred to staff attorneys and volunteers as “zealous advocates for our clients.” “(They) always have been, always will be,” Chavez said. The nonprofit operates with a budget of just over $2 million. It garners financial support from a yearly fundraising event called La Mancha Awards, as well as individual donations and grants, such as the United Nation’s Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture, a fund that assists different entities in helping victims of

torture and their families. The center has served thousands of clients since it opened in 1992, responding in kind as policies and procedures for immigrants, as well as social climates abroad have changed. In 2014, Chavez noted a marked increase in the number of children attempting to flee violent circumstances in Central America. From 2012 to 2014, the number of children served by the organization doubled from 317 to 633 clients. Clients from across the globe have sought out its services — individuals from countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and former Eastern Bloc nations. Clients are often referred to the organization by other

local agencies, community leaders, law enforcement officials or victim advocates. “We’ve had persons from all over the world who are hoping to find freedom and safety,” Chavez said. In addition to serving immigrant clients already in the area, staff and attorneys will also screen individuals at the Otay Mesa detention facility, to determine if they are legally eligible to be granted asylum. Staff are often working with clients who have experienced trauma, which can be exacerbated by their experience in the detention centers. “Their human spirit has been damaged,” Chavez said. “And they’re hoping to find safe haven and an op-

portunity for a new life … they yearn for that.” Casa Cornelia is the only free legal service organization in San Diego County that provides direct legal representation for unaccompanied, detained children. Chavez said that working and communicating with younger clients can sometimes be a challenge, particularly when it comes to communication. Although the various volunteers with the organization speak a combined 45 plus different languages and dialects, there might be the added difficulty of clients speaking an indigenous dialect. Chavez described Casa Cornelia staff as the “legal first responders” for their clients. They guide individuals in the process of obtaining asylum, after which they are “given orientation as to the next steps,” whether that may be obtaining a work permit, determining eligibility to become permanent residents, or pursuing citizenship. For these purposes, Casa Cornelia will help refer clients to other organizations in the county. “We are focused on (immigrants) that are currently at risk, currently detained or who have been victimized” Chavez said. “We help them with the first visa application or the first asylum application … We secure their legal status.”

Poinsettia Park upgrades ongoing By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — By the summer, Poinsettia Park will have a new look. Construction began several months ago to add a large playground, pickleball courts and a multi-use turf field and the city of Carlsbad is also moving forward with a dog park. It took the city several years to get the project off the ground as residents pushed back on the location of the dog park, adding pickleball courts and eliminating a community center. Many residents clamored over the dog park initially being placed in the lower bowl, or detention basin, where kids play and slide and roll down the small hill on the west side. They noted how it is one of the only areas dedicated to open play as much of the park consists of tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields and two basketball courts. After feedback, the City Council approved revised plans in February, which was needed after two rounds of bidding for contractors in 2016 and 2017 were rejected. The dog park, meanwhile, is designed for the east side of the 42-acre park. It will be an enclosed, off-leash dog facility including separate areas for large

and small canines. The park will also feature dog agility equipment, drinking fountains, picnic tables, benches, trash cans and perimeter lighting. It also will have an entry plaza with shade structure and an area of about 7,700 square feet for small dogs and 20,000 for larger one. Both areas will be enclosed and separated by a 6-foot high vinyl-coated chain-link fence with dual gate access to each side of the dog park. Much of the site will be re-graded into a large, gently sloped pad, while the existing grove of trees at the south end of the site will be preserved as much as possible. In addition to Poinsettia Park, the city is also upgrading Aviara Park. The two projects are estimated to cost $6.3 million. As for the community center, a feasibility study was conducted and revealed the proposed site, now for pickleball, would force the center to lose many of its amenities so it was scrapped. The multi-use turf field, meanwhile, will give the park a second area for soccer, football and other athletic activities to practice and host games. The second field is on the northwest end of the park, just below the main field.

It is hereby given that the City Council will conduct a Public Hearing on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., to discuss the following item proposed by the City of Encinitas: CASE NUMBER: 18-231 ZA/LCPA APPLICANT: City of Encinitas LOCATION: Light Industrial and Business Park Zones DESCRIPTION: Public Hearing to review and consider the introduction of draft City Council Ordinance No. 2019-01 (considered by the Planning Commission on November 15, 2018 as Ordinance No. 2018-15), titled “An Ordinance of the City of Encinitas Adopting Amendments to Title 30 (Zoning) of the Encinitas Municipal Code, Which Proposes to Allow Emergency Shelters as a Permitted Use in the Business Park and Light Industrial Zones” as required by state law. Title 30 of the Municipal Code is a component of the Local Coastal Program (LCP); therefore the LCP would also be amended as part of this application. Under California Government Code Section 65009, if you challenge the proposed zoning amendments in court, you may be limited to raising only those factual and legal issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City at, or before, the public hearing.

PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: The Planning Commission considered the proposed zoning amendments on November 15, 2018 and recommended adoption to the City Council, with modifications that the zoning amendments be limited to those necessary to allow emergency shelters in the Business Park and Light Industrial Zones, and additionally, evaluate if Emergency Shelters shall remain as a conditional use within General Commercial Zones. NOTICE OF AVALIABILITY: This project constitutes an amendment to the Local Coastal Program (LCP). If the City approves the amendment, the proposed LCP amendment must be submitted to the California Coastal Commission for review and adoption. The LCP amendment will not become effective until after adoption by the California Coastal Commission. Staff released a Notice of Availability with the Planning Commission Public Hearing Notice, which opened a six-week public review period (November 2, 2018 through December 14, 2018) prior to any final action being taken by the City Council on the LCP amendment request.

There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his prorata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling $30,202.90 [10% of the Secretary’s bid] in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. Each oral bid need not be accompanied by a deposit. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $30,202.90 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence.

If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD Field Office representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure.

There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant the Act.

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.

Learning tradition and patience through basket weaving By Samantha Taylor

OCEANSIDE — Patience is a learned virtue for Diania Caudell. As she recovered from a back surgery in 2001, she learned patience by picking up basket weaving. Now, she practices patience both through her basket weaving and by teaching others, including children, the Native American tradition. Born in Oceanside and currently living in Escondido, Caudell comes from a long line of basket weavers, including her mother. She credits her surgery in the early 2000s as what brought her back to basket weaving. Today, she is the treasurer on the board treasurer for the California Indian Basketweavers’ Association. Caudell is one of 20,000 Native Americans who live in San Diego County. She is a member of the San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians, also known as the San Luis Rey Band of Luiseño Indians. The band is associated with six other Luiseño and Cupeño bands: La Jolla, Pechanga, Pauma, Pala, Rincon and Soboba. Caudell specializes in promoting awareness about the San Luis Rey band and other Native American cultures through education. For years she has been visiting area colleges, universities and primary schools to teach Luiseño basket weaving traditions. Most recently, Caudell visited Innovations Acade-

A THIRD-GRADER, left, at Innovations Academy demonstrates how to weave a basket.

my, a charter school in San Diego, to teach two thirdgrade classes. Luiseño Indians make “open weave” baskets using deergrass, juncus and sumac, all native plants to Southern California. Rather than using those native plants, Caudell instead brought a cane fibre for the students to use. She also taught them the Cherokee style of basket weaving because it doesn’t require using any sharp tools throughout the process like Luiseño basket weaving often does. She even made sure to get permission to use the Chero-

kee style from the Cherokee Nation. Caudell also got permission to teach the class in Kumeyaay territory, which is where the academy is located. The Kumeyaay, also spelled Kumiai, are another Native American people from Southern California and Baja California in Mexico. Kumeyaay and Luiseño basket weaving techniques are exactly alike, Caudell said, explaining that they differentiate in design. The third-graders Caudell taught were wrapping up their session on learning

about the Kumeyaay people. Parent involvement is highly encouraged at Innovations Academy. It was Sally Lutz, mother of third-grader Bethel, who reached out to Caudell about visiting the school. Lutz and several other parents volunteered to help Caudell with the basketweaving class. Caudell brought the basket bases and showed both the parents and students the proper over-and-under technique to weaving the cane material. Each student received a base and cane thread

soaked in water to make the material pliable enough for weaving. Caudell instructed the students not to force their baskets to bend; instead, they should let the baskets take the shape they want. Some would naturally bend, while others would take a flatter shape. “Your hands are going to shape this basket,” Caudell told the students. “Sometimes the basket is going to go up, and sometimes it stays flat.” Caudell told students that basket weavers often use a “third hand,” which is

their mouth. Caudell also told the kids that their weaving patterns would vary, too. Some kids tightly wove the cane thread through their basket base, while others kept it loose, resembling a spider web. “It’s all in the hands,” Caudell said. One of these spider web weavers was young Caden Wood. He thought the basketweaving class was fun, but also hard. Bethel Lutz, Sally Lutz’s daughter who sat at the same table as Wood during the lesson, also enjoyed the class. “You get to make your own basket,” she said, holding up her unfinished basket. Some of the students got the hang of basket weaving right away, while others struggled and a few grew frustrated. Teachers and parents were there to lend a helping hand and remind the young children that they have to be patient — just like Caudell when she first picked up the practice. “I had to learn patience,” she told the group. At the end of the lesson, dozens of little baskets were “born” by the hands of third-graders. The baskets’ material, style, where they were made and when they were made all tell their “stories,” Caudell explained. “This basket was born today,” she said, holding her basket example. “It’s going to have a story.”

5. The Rail Corridor 2019 will be a big year along Encinitas’ rail corridor, as construction is expected to be completed on the once-controversial Cardiff section of the Coastal Rail Trail, as well as the city’s first quiet zone at the Chesterfield Drive crossing. The Cardiff rail trail is expected to open in the summer. If you recall, there was a well-coordinated campaign against the current placement on the San Elijo Avenue side of the tracks, but the California Coastal Commission rejected an alternative plan on the west side of Coast Highway 101. The city is also expected to begin work on a very highly anticipated pedestri-

an under-crossing at El Portal in Leucadia, which has been in the works for years. With no legal pedestrian crossings in the area, El Portal is expected to be a game changer for Leucadia and residents looking to safely access Coast Highway 101 and the beaches. 6. Cannabis and the 2020 elections With the possibility of the state’s primary election moving from June to March, Encinitas residents could be in campaign mode by the second half of the year. And the biggest topic on the election docket? Cannabis. A cannabis advocacy group successfully filed enough signatures in its referendum effort to require the city to allow various cannabis activities, including storefronts, deliveries, man-

ufacturing and cultivation. The City Council, rather than adopting the ordinance outright, has put it in the hands of voters. Back in 2017, when a local flower grower proposed using a section of his farm to grow cannabis, the debate was fierce. As the city moves closer to the 2020 race, expect that debate to rev up once more. Also of interest will be who will challenge Blakespear for mayor, Councilman Tony Kranz in the newly formed District 1 and the currently vacant District 2 seat. If 2018 was a preview of district elections, expect partisan lines to be drawn. Other storylines to follow: • Beacon’s Beach — Will the city move forward with a staircase at Beacon’s or will resident opposition be insur-

mountable? • Pacific View — Will this be the year the long discussed plan to transform the former elementary school into a cultural arts and ecology center materialize? • Community Choice Energy — The city is set to release the results of its feasibility study into community choice energy in January, which could set the stage for the city and other North Coastal cities to join forces with San Diego to form a regional energy conglomerate. • Granny flat policy — Encinitas’ long-awaited accessory dwelling unit policy is expected to be released and voted on by the council in early 2019. The policy would give residents eight pre-approved ‘granny flat’ designs that would streamline the development process.

If you're environmentally concerned, you should always consider the full lifecycle of any product. What materials are needed to make it? How much transportation is used to assemble and deliver it? How will you dispose of it? For example, consider a cellphone. To make its semiconductor core, masses of ore must be mined. Each cellphone generates 165 pounds of waste - all for a phone weighing ounces. And what happens when you're done with it? Recycling doesn’t make it disappear – most go to landfill. Its toxic components can't be used in other electronics, and it's not economically feasible to extract its scant precious metals. What about clothing? Synthetic material is derived from petroleum, and we know that's not good. But what about natural fibers like cotton - aren't they better? Maybe, but not quite ... Cotton is the world's most chemically-intensive

crop, needing massive applications of herbicides and fungicides. And cotton accounts for 25% of worldwide pesticide use. Furthermore, each pound of cotton uses over 3800 gallons of water. Naturally, manufacturers would rather that you did not know the less glamorous side of their product's lifecycle: your ignorance is their bliss. But since every product has high environmental costs both to create and to dispose, the best approach is one that you should like: buy what you really, truly love, then keep it a long time. So be happy and be environmental at the same time!

La Costa Canyon grad tackles endurance TV show

By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — One former Carlsbad graduate will be kicking off the new year on a national stage. Nika Sedghi, 25, is one of 64 contestants (32 men, 32 women) who will compete for $100,000 grand prize on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s new show, “The Titan Games.” The show premiers on Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. on NBC. Sedghi said she was one of 10,000 applications for the show, which pushes contestants through physical tests, a sort of combination between “American Ninja Warrior” and “American Gladiators.” “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and something I’m thankful for with ‘The Rock,’” she said. “He set out to create a platform for ordinary people to do extraordinary things and that’s genuinely exactly what he did. The opportunity to extend my reach on a national level is something that warms my heart.” Raised in Carlsbad, the current San Diego resident said she is inspired by Johnson’s goal of showing everyday people they can accomplish the most difficult tasks. Johnson, one of the biggest movie stars in the world, was a former Division I football player at the University of Miami and star wrestler in the WWE before turning to Hollywood. As for Sedghi, she was a standout water polo player and swimmer at La Costa Canyon High School, before joining the water polo team

at San Diego State University. While there, though, she said her final years were tough as she experienced a drastic change in weight. Sedghi, who works as a gas turbine mechanical engineer at Agilis Engineering, put on nearly 40 pounds after an injury training for a triathlon. Even though she was an active DI athlete, she said the dramatic change had a profound effect. She also learned she had a heart condition, supraventricular tachycardia, which is an abnormally fast heartbeat, but turned it around with better nutrition and was able to stabilize her weight and health. After graduating, she found bodybuilding, which has been her passion over the past several years. Then, earlier this year, a friend showed her the application for “The Titan Games.” Sedghi applied earlier this year and months later while on the Stairmaster at the gym, she received a call informing her she was in. “I remember I got the call and shocked would be an understatement,” she said. “I didn’t believe it. It led to an immediate physical spring on the Stairmaster.” Her passion for health and fitness is a driving force in her life she said. And the opportunity to bring her story and message to a national audience is inspiring. Sedghi said weight is not the only measurement of health. Standing 5-foot10 and 140 pounds, the chis-

eled woman is also looking to inspire others the way Johnson is doing with the show. “Being active and fit means the world,” she added. “My transformation was about 20 weeks. I found such a passion for fitness, nutrition and health. I want to help other people reach their fitness goals and not struggle through the things

that I did. What I preach on my social media platforms is focus on health, not the scale.” As for the show, filming has already ended, although results are kept secret, according to Rob Tobias, a public relations director for the show. Each gender will compete against each other in an elimination-style format, with the male and fe-

male winners squaring off against each other for the grand prize. “It’s exactly like what you’d get from the March Madness tournament,” he said. “Each week they dwindle down. They did it all in Los Angeles and built a massive arena.” Follow Sedghi on Instagram (neeks93) or Twitter (neeks_93).

ou’ve heard about those girls born with the much-lauded silver spoon in their mouths? I had it all over them. When I opened my mouth to howl, a set of metric wrenches was poking out. That is to say, I was blessed with a daddy whose hobby was car repair. Diamonds are dandy, but they won’t get you back on the road in the middle of the night. Ask anyone you know, and they will have a horror story about getting stranded, or weeks without their car while some auto repair place jerked them around. I had no such nightmares for the bulk of my lie. My dad once drove from El Cajon to East L.A. for me, after I placed a tearful, panic-stricken phone call. Mom claimed I wouldn’t recognize my father unless I could see the soles of his feet sticking out from under a car. That’s just not true. All he had to do is smear a little grease on his nose and chin, and I’d know him in a second. I am a little surprised that he ever came to the phone once he knew it was me on the other end. For several years, our standard greeting degenerated to “Hi, Dad!” “Hi, daughter. What broke?” But there was more affection behind those words than you might think. I can think of no greater sacrifice to make for your little girl than to give up watching the weekend golf in order to replace her brake cylinder. TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B13

Enjoy Arizona’s countryside, history at Lynx Lake hit the road e’louise ondash

W

HOP! Or maybe the sound was more like

THWOMP! At any rate, my friend, Donna, is laying on her back after hitting a patch of ice on the trail and amazingly, she’s laughing. Unfortunately, she is the first in line of our party of four hikers and didn’t see the thin layer of ice that had formed at a watery spot on the trail. Donna will probably feel the consequences of this fall tomorrow, but for now, she’s taking it in stride while the rest of us hover. Once we recover from HER fall, we continue our hike around Lynx Lake, about five miles east of Prescott, Arizona. Every turn on the alpine trail brings a reason to pull out my cell phone camera. The 40-degree air keeps us moving at a brisk pace as we pass mallards and cranes cruising the only feet away. The birds make ripple patterns in the watery reflections of a spotless blue sky. About halfway around our 3-mile circumnavigation, we arrive at the North

LYNX LAKE, near Prescott, Arizona, is actually a 55-acre reservoir at 5,530 feet of elevation. It attracts birdwatchers from throughout the state and beyond, some who come to see the nests of bald eagles. A scenic 3-mile trail circumvents the lake. Photo by E’Louise Ondash

Shore Vista Point where, at the right time of year, visitors can see bald eagles in their nests. (Portions of various trails in the Lynx Lake Recreations Area are closed from Dec. 1 to June 30 to allow the nesting eagles, an endangered species, to remain undisturbed.) The countryside here is representative of the beautiful rugged scenery and near-solitude that is easy to find just a few minutes’ drive from downtown Pres-

cott. Twice the capital of Territorial Arizona, which became a state in 1912, Prescott sits more than a mile high close to the state’s center. It is this wide-open countryside, the curious and colorful rock formations, clean, dry air, cooler summers and gentle winters, an abundance of outdoor activities, and (drum roll, please) cheaper housing prices that make Prescott a magnet for both visitors and new residents.

And, like our friends, longtime Oceanside residents, the new folks continue to roll in. In 2000, the city’s population was 34,000: today it’s 42,000. That’s a 25 percent increase, but in actual numbers and by California standards, this is minuscule growth. However, it’s enough to cause housing prices to head north, so it’s safe to say that longtime Prescott residents are probably not thrilled with the influx. But to visitors like us from “next door”

— the most populous state in the country — Prescott and the surrounding area still look like a whole bunch of open space. And if you want to fit in, know that the city is pronounced PRESS-kit. It was named after historian William Hickling Prescott (1796-1859), a partially blind, highly regarded historian who had a photographic memory. He never visited Arizona and died before the town was named. We have only 48 hours to explore and to enjoy some of area’s attractions, and our Lynx Lake hike is a good start. Later we stop at Mary’s Cozy Home Furnishings, a former bank building on State Route 89 that has been converted into an antique, handicrafts and home design store jammed to the rafters with merchandise. The floors, walls and ceiling are punctuated with splashes of holiday red and green. I could browse for a week, but escape with a Christmas card basket, hoping that not everyone will go digital this year. Later, as the sun goes down, we await for the grand illumination of the Valley of Lights. A mile-long, oneway, drive-through route sponsored by the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce, the show features light tunnels, cartoon characters and holiday symbols created by thousands of

multi-colored lights. This puts us in the mood for a walk through downtown’s Plaza where the historic Yavapai County Courthouse (finished in 1918) and the majestic elms that ring it have been encased in lights. The downtown area is filled with homes, business buildings and churches that are beautiful examples of Victorian, Queen Anne, Early Territorial, and Neo-Classical, Mission and Second Renaissance revival architecture. Prescott also claims the first Carnegie Library built in Arizona. Nearby, another historic gem: the Palace Restaurant and Saloon, an icon that stands amid Prescott’s Whiskey Row. An ornately carved Brunswick bar fills the front portion of the first floor, and glass cases are full of artifacts and memorabil-ia of famous (Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and Steve McQueen) and not-so-famous patrons. In 1900, when the town was burning and the Palace caught fire, patrons picked up the massive wooden bar and carried it into the street. For more, visit www. visit-prescott.com.

O’side Council to fill seat in early Jan. By Samantha Taylor

OCEANSIDE — The city’s first district election has left one City Council seat empty and the other members trying to fill it by Jan. 9. Last year, Oceanside City Council adopted an ordinance that established by-district elections for City Council offices. The city has split itself into four separate districts, and each council member is required to live in their respective district to be elected. Previously, council members were elected “atlarge,” meaning that they could live anywhere in the city and still be elected. Now, with Districts 1 and 2 phased in and Districts 3 and 4 to come in 2020, council members whose four-year terms have expired must live within the boundaries of those remaining two districts in order to run and be elected back onto council. Councilwoman Esther Sanchez bumped former Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery out for the District 1 seat, and brand-new Councilman Christopher

Rodriguez won District 2. The vacancy would be the remainder of Sanchez’s at-large, four-year term to which she was re-elected in 2016. Former Councilman Jerry Kern wrapped up his third four-year term on City Council this year. This year he ran in the jungle primary for a seat on the County Board of Supervisors, which he lost. During its Dec. 19 meeting, council declared the seat vacant and discussed its options on how to fill it: either appoint a successor to fill the vacancy at that meeting or accept applications to fill the vacancy by the Feb. 6, 2019, regular council meeting, or call for a special election on Nov. 5, 2019. Council voted 3-1 to interview candidates by Jan. 8 and to appoint someone to the seat by its next regular meeting on Jan. 9. Mayor Peter Weiss told council he had been approached by about 12 people who are interested in the position. Councilmen Jack Feller and Rodriguez had also been in contact with people who are inter-

ested in the role. “I think it behooves us to meet with these people individually and come prepared the next meeting to make a decision,” Weiss said. Both Rodriguez and Feller agreed to make the decision as soon as possible. Sanchez, who voted against the expedited Jan. 9 date, asked the other members to wait until later in January to decide the appointee to the vacant seat, explaining that it was an important decision that needed time for consideration. She also noted she had planned on taking time off for the holiday season at the end of the December, and that interviewing candidates to make a decision by Jan. 9 would cut into that time off. The elected, part-time role of city clerk also will be vacant soon as Zack Beck will resign effective Dec. 31 to accept an appointment to full-time city clerk in Escondido. Council is expected to discuss how to fill the city clerk position at its Jan. 9 meeting as well.

BMI readings can be misleading for some Ask the Doctors

Dr. Elizabeth Ko

Dr. Eve Glazier

DEAR DOCTOR: I'm not thin by any means, but I'm not obese either. I lift weights three to four times a week, run about 10 miles a week, play soccer and regularly do half-marathons. Now a new study says that because my BMI is 26, there's no way I can be fit and healthy. Is this true?

Donation drive helps Paradise teachers, students By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Three city schools are joining the efforts to rebuild Paradise after the Camp fire wiped the small Northern California town off the map in November. The deadliest wildfire in state history burned through homes, businesses, public facilities and schools. To help, Ann Pagley, a health technician at Kelly Elementary School, has organized a public book drive from Jan. 14 to Jan. 16 (11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. parents, staff, students only; and 2:40 to 6 p.m. for

the public) at the school so teachers in Paradise, now scattered throughout Northern California, can rebuild their classroom libraries. Eight of the nine schools in Paradise were destroyed, leaving just Paradise High School standing but damaged, with an estimated 5,700 students displaced. Although the teachers and students of Paradise are in other schools, Pagley said the drive is just one way to help bring a sense of normalcy back to those victims. “You start thinking … these schools were completely wiped out,” she said. “Pretty much all teachers put their own money forward to buy supplies for their classroom. I thought we could help with is their personal classroom library.”

She contacted the Scholastic Corporation, which is assisting with the books to organize the drive. The drive features getting two books for the price of one. “If you bought one book for $5, you get another book off the shelf for $5 and they both go into the box,” Pagley said. “You’re getting one, but really donating two.” The focus is on kindergarten through fifth grade, but Pagley said books for other grades will be accepted; however non-scholastic books will also be accepted and new and gently used books will be donated. For the classroom, early reader and chapter books are of consequence along with science books, Pagley said. The books will also be used for reading comprehension said. “I really want our par-

ents to think past their kids,” she added. “We will have another book fair in the spring, so they can shop for their kids there. I think it’s a great lesson for the kids. I think all these kids are capable of knowing there are other people in the world of need.” In addition, cash donations are accepted, which will go to purchase books. Scholastic also offers an e-wallet to purchase books two weeks before Kelly’s drive. Calavera Hills Middle School and Buena Vista Elementary School are also hosting book drives, but those are reserved for students, parents and staff. Calavera Hills’ drive runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 15 and Jan. 16, while Buena Vista’s drive runs from 7:30 to 8 a.m. and 2:30 to 3 p.m. Jan. 14 to Jan. 16.

DEAR READER: Due in part to the limitations of BMI as a measurement, many athletes and muscular individuals will fall into the overweight category, which is a body mass index in the range of 25 to 30. The body mass index, a measure of body fat based on the ratio between an individual's height and weight, can be a useful tool. However, it doesn't leave room for additional factors like bone density, muscle mass, overall body composition, or the natural variations inherent in the sex, age or ethnicity of an individual. For example, the BMI of someone who is athletic can skew higher because of the presence of additional muscle, which is denser than fat. Elderly adults tend to have more body fat than younger adults and may have experienced bone loss as well. And on average, women tend to have a higher percentage of body fat than do men. With athletic individuals, whose habits when it comes to healthful diet and regular exercise are usually quite good, we tend not to worry that much about their actual weight. In these specific cases, we agree that it is possible to fall into the category of being overweight but

still be fit. However, when a patient edges into the upper regions of the BMI category of overweight, or when they register as obese, which is a body mass index of 30 and above, it becomes a different story. At that point we will definitely explain to them the not-insignificant health risks associated with obesity, no matter how physically active the individual may be. These include high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, Type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, metabolic syndrome and certain cancers. In a large-scale study published last year in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers from England found that, even when they were otherwise clinically healthy -that is, their blood pressure, blood sugar and blood lipid levels were all within in the normal range -- individuals who were obese were at measurably higher risk of the adverse health outcomes we mentioned above. Even being overweight raised the risk of coronary heart disease up to 30 percent, despite good blood pressure, blood sugar and blood lipid numbers, according to the study results. The researchers' conclusions came from analysis of data drawn from the electronic medical records of 3.5 million people between 1995 and 2015. However, critics of the study point out that important factors associated with lifestyle, such as exercise habits, diet or stress, each of which can affect or even skew results, were not given equal weight. If the extra pounds that tipped your BMI into the overweight category can be attributed to additional muscle mass because of your athletic endeavors, and if your metabolic markers are all in good order, then in our opinion, you can consider yourself to be fit.

County unemployment dips as 2018 winds down DA warns of REGION — San Diego County’s unadjusted unemployment rate dipped slightly to 3.2 percent in November, with nonfarm industries adding nearly 10,000 jobs, the California Employment Development Department announced Dec. 21. The November unem-

ployment rate is down from a revised 3.3 percent in October and even further below the 3.5 percent rate in November 2017. Total nonfarm employment increased by 9,800 jobs from October to November while total farm employment lost 300 jobs. Nonfarm employment now totals 1,503,800 in San Diego County and farm jobs total 8,500.

The trade, transportation and utilities industry added 5,900 jobs monthover-month, the most of any industry in the county. Government was the county’s only other industry to add more than 800 jobs, increasing by 2,900. According to EDD data, 1,300 of the government jobs added were in the state and local education sub-industries. The leisure and hospitality industry continued to lose jobs as 2018 recedes fur-

ther away from the summer months. The industry lost the most jobs of any in the county from October to November at 1,300. Year-over-year data showed an employment increase of 26,400, all nonfarm jobs, from November 2017 to November 2018. A majority of those gains, 16,500 jobs, came in the professional and business services industry. Year-over- year farm employment stayed steady at 8,500 jobs. California’s unadjusted unemployment rate dipped from 4.1 percent in October to 3.9 percent in November, according to the EDD. That rate is also below the state’s unemployment rate in November 2017, 4.2 percent. Nationwide unemployment also fell in both time spans, from 3.7 percent in October and 3.9 percent in November 2017 to 3.5 percent in November 2018. — City News Service

phone scams REGION — District Attorney Summer Stephan recently warned San Diegans, especially senior citizens, to beware of a scam in which callers are pretending to be from the Social Security Administration in an attempt to obtain Social Security numbers. In some cases, the caller may say a person’s Social Security number has been linked to a crime and has been blocked, but can be reinstated for a fee. Another variation involves the caller saying that a person’s bank account is being seized and the victim should withdraw all cash from the account. “All of these are scams,” Stephan said. The Social Security Administration’s phone number is (800) 772-1213. — City News Service

Sisters release first kids book in North County series Special to The Coast News

OCEANSIDE — Surprise, surprise: when siblings can get along without any squabbling good things can happen. Meet sisters Julia and Nancy Glen, who are writing a series of children’s books focused on several SoCal communities including their first called “Oceanside Adventures.” “Each story carries the themes of friendship, inclusion and community. Woven throughout is the history with local attractions and events,” said Julia Glen, the younger of the two, and an artist who resides in Oceanside. Future books will include such North County cities as Encinitas, Carlsbad, and Vista, to name a few. Additionally, a percentage of the proceeds from their books will go toward SISTERS Julia, left, and Nancy Glen show off the kids book they co-authored, “Oceanside Adventures.” Courtesy photo supporting local literacy programs because: “it is a cause close to us both.” “I wrote the story and about their home.

San Diego Blood Bank provides holiday meals REGION — Donors to the San Diego Blood Bank will provide more than 38,000 meals to San Diego families in need this holiday season through a partnership with the San Diego Food Bank, it was announced Dec. 21. The partnership enabled blood donors to donate their loyalty points to the food bank during the San Diego Cares blood drive. Those donations will help the food bank provide a total of 38,741 meals to hungry families, according to the blood bank. “Over 1,700 blood donors stepped up in a twoweek timeframe to double down on their impact for people in need,” said San Diego Blood Bank CEO David Wellis. “We are so thankful

for and proud of San Diego’s blood donor community.” According to the blood bank, San Diego Cares replaced the San Diego Chargers Blood Drive when the football team moved to Los Angeles in 2017. The blood bank expanded the program this year when the opportunity to work with the food bank arose. The San Diego Cares blood drive runs through Jan. 15. “We are thrilled about the results of this amazing partnership with the San Diego Blood Bank,” said San Diego Food Bank President and CEO James Floros. “The community really stepped up to the plate this holiday season.” — City News Service

son, a trip to the library was a big event! As a teacher I believe reading/literacy opens up a whole new world to children.” She added that they grew up in a big extended family in Washington state.

Working together But what about working together — has it been easy or difficult? “I know not everyone could work with family, but we have done fine so far,” Nancy Glen said. “I think the key is stepping back and taking a breather when things get stressful. A little chocolate doesn’t hurt.” And they have had a great amount of fun pulling this first book together, too, Julia Glen said. “The best thing about writing this book is seeing the final product come out so beautiful after all the hard work,” she said. “Having our book in the hands of kids reading what you created is priceless. The hardest part was narrowing down the scope of the book. Especially with Oceanside, there were so many amazing things to add, we couldn’t

squeeze it all in.” The women decided to self-publish the book via printer Steuben’s Press in Colorado and are hoping the book takes off. “We are doing our best to get the word out and promote our work,” Nancy Glen said. “It has been a fun journey, but a huge learning curve. Because Julia lives in Oceanside, and is much better at technology, the bulk of the leg work has been on her shoulders. I so appreciate all she does.” In the end the sisters

hope their book series inspires everyone to explore their own backyards. “Participate, contribute and enjoy the community you live in,” Nancy Glen said. “Next, go next door and see what’s new.” If you want to purchase “Oceanside Adventures,” visit www.glencreations.com and find the link to purchase the book on the site as well as a list of businesses that carry the book locally. The cost is $12.95 plus tax for the paperback book which has 42 colored pages.

The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. 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. 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 (714) 7302727 or visit this Internet Web site www.servicelinkasap.com, using the file number assigned to this case 4218-40. 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. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $794,596.08 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. The Beneficiary may elect to bid less than their full credit bid. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located and more than three months have elapsed since such recordation.

Bizarro

Carbonaro, who attended NYU and studied theatrics, said he was planning on a career as a makeup artist, but things changed. “I think magic really finds a person and some people become attached to it,” he said. “For me, I was fascinated with special effects which lead to magic. I wanted to be a makeup artist before I wanted to be a magician. I’ve always loved horror movies, Halloween and special effects.” Carbonaro recalled his first experience with the genre was when he was inside a magic shop after going to buy makeup supplies. “When I went in it was filled with all kinds of things under one roof — magic tricks, jokes, etc. and I started to look at other things besides the makeup. I think there is something about magic and creating something that isn’t real … and then seeing how it can affect people … this is the heart of being a magician.”

Carbonaro One-on-one with ‘bizarrist’ magician appearing at Pala Casino in April

Special to The Coast News

REGION — Step aside David Copperfield and Penn & Teller, Michael Carbonaro is making his mark on magic and then some. From appearing on TV shows to hosting his own show, as well as appearing live, the 42-year-old Carbonaro is becoming a household name. Come April 6, the performance bizarrist Carbonaro is returning to the road with his highly acclaimed national theater tour, “Michael Carbonaro Live!” with stops including New York City, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, St. Louis and the Pala Casino on April 6. The Pala show is for those 21 and older. Carbonaro has performed more than 500 comically perplexing and improbable feats of magic on his hit TV series, “The Carbonaro Effect” on TruTV, currently in its fourth season. A trickster at heart, he performs inventive tricks on unsuspecting members of the public who are unaware that he is a magician. Jaws drop when he causes a car to disappear from under a security guard’s nose or makes alien crabs transform into kittens in a science lab. Whether posing as a coffee shop barista, museum curator or seemingly unremarkable store clerk in the real world, Carbonaro's illusions — along with his absurd, matter-of-fact expla-

nations — leave real people bewildered and families at home laughing out loud. And now, he is taking his popular theater show back on the road so more families can feel the effect of “Michael Carbonaro… Live!” You will not just “sit back, relax, and enjoy the show,” which is jam-packed with audience interaction, humorous video clips and a whirlwind of magic performed live on stage. Named “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts, Carbonaro has been presented with the first-ever “Copperfield Prize,” which recognizes an individual for elevating the art of magic.

One-on-one Carbonaro, who resides in Burbank, recently chatted with The Coast News about the upcoming live tour, his busy schedule and how he chose magic as a career. “’The Carbonaro Effect’ is really fun because it’s ‘Candid Camera’ with magic,” he said. “It’s super great for families and I’ve got fans who write and say it’s the only show they can watch together as a family. This is nice to hear, always.” He said his TV show is not “mean-spirited” like other prank shows and doesn’t aim to make people look bad. “It gives me the ability to utilize all my skills of magic, special effects

and to still be able to make people believe in the most outrageous and fascinating things,” he said. When did magic become so fascinating for the Long Island, New York, native? “Well, I don’t have a tremendous amount of

family history of family who were in acting or performing,” he said. “But my mom, Elizabeth is outrageous, funny and crazy. My dad, who passed away two years ago, was quiet but when he said something, it was funny; we had lots of playfulness in our family.”

Early start Carbonaro got an early start with dipping his foot in magic and said he began performing magic tricks at 8 years old. Later during his early teen years, Carbonaro performed at birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, christenings, family picnics and other get-togethers. Carbonaro said he would spend a lot of time watching famed magician David Copperfield perform and become fascinated with his work. “I’d watch him host a whole night taking people on a journey with his dramatic illusions and jokes,” he said. “I jumped right on that and said, ‘I want to do that and be a host of my own magic show.’” And so, the journey to become a household name began. After high school Carbonaro attended NYU and spent a lot of time in the theater department where he learned as much as he could in hopes of “creating a great, future magic show.” During his college years he became interested in acting and comedic acting, as well as intrigued by all the aspects of theater. “Today I love performing magic all over but I still love being a guest star on sitcoms, too,” he said. “I love all forms of expression of theatrics. But performing live is my favorite.” About six years ago he was a guest on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno performing his live “Candid Camera” style magic. He was such a hit he went on to perform on the show eight more times. He also has starred in CBS’s “Rush Hour,” NBC’s “30 Rock,” ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Three years ago, he guest starred on an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” playing a guy whose hand got stuck in a meat grinder, it was a great experience

for him “and right up his alley.” “I was a patient over the entire episode and the special effects were mind-blowing that the did to my hand; I was excited,” he said. “It was a real illusion how they made my arm look all chewed up.” These days he makes his home with his husband Peter and spends a good portion of the year filming his TV show. “I like having a TV show and meeting fans, but I love live shows, which is where I am in full flow,” he said. I like a live crowd and the back and forth energy. I enjoy having them help me with tricks as you never know where it will go. Riding that vibe back and forth with the audience right there, well, there’s nothing like it. I’m thrilled to be hitting the road and excited to be doing live shows in casinos and theaters all over the country.”

Why so popular? “I think I have a kindness and a playfulness about me that comes naturally; I’m not cutthroat or competitive like a lot of entertainers,” he said. “I have a good moral compass and a good kinship with fellow human beings and as a result all my shows are done the way I would want it to be done on me,” he said. “I think it goes back to when I was a kid and performing shows. I developed into a Johnny Carson-esque kind of show; I think because I always had a mixed crowd of kids and adults I was performing for. That’s how people are responding to the TV show and the live show now because of that. I’m excited to hear this.” Like Houdini and other magicians Carbonaro has what he calls a “signature act” and it has to do with shaving cream. “I end my shows with a mime piece where I cover myself in shaving cream and sculpt it into different people and creatures with my hands,” he said. “It’s creating live sculpture set to music and very transformative, very bizarre … audiences love it.” He said the idea stemmed from when he was a kid and working with special effects and makeup. “I used to do it all the time as a kid, but I never showed anyone because I thought I’d get into trouble for using all my dad’s shaving cream,” he laughed. “When I was at NYU, I remembered it and thought I could turn it into a wild stage act. I did that, and it took me all over the world; Paris, Russia Germany … on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’ It was my bread and butter before I started to do the live shows. Audiences love it, it’s now my big finale and lets them know who this bizarre guy is that they have been watching.” The “Michael Carbonaro Live!” tour comes to the Events Cents stage at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 6, at Pala Casino Spa & Resort. A reminder: this show is 21 and older due to casino regulations.

Del Mar sculptor shares bronze work ‘Humanity’ DEL MAR — Del Mar sculptor Maidy Morhous and film director Sue Vicory of Heartland Films, Inc., joined forces to share the bronze sculpture “Humanity” with North County. Morhous is featured in the documentary film “One,” by Heartland Films Inc. Her commissioned sculpture “Humanity” is the subject of the documentary, and has been donated to the city of Encinitas by Sue and Jay Vicory. The sculpture has found a permanent home surrounded by trees and looking out over the Pacific ocean at “J” Street Park in Encinitas. Dedication by the city is scheduled for January or February 2019. Morhous received her Master of Fine Arts degree

while continuing studies at Stanley Hayter’s Atelier 17 in Paris, in the mid1970s. Before returning to the States, she traveled to Italy to study casting techniques at the Fonderia Artistica-Marinelli Foundry, in Florence. Morhous became fascinated with how bronze; a cold hard metal could take on such a soft sensuous appearance, and has since worked exclusively with bronze as her form of creative expression. Morhous is currently showing her artwork throughout the country, and is preparing for a solo exhibition in Los Angeles at gallery 825 in 2019 and an invitational exhibition in Naples, Italy in May.

Y

ou have to do your homework with Italian wines. With each year there is an inconsistency in quality. They can be very good or very bad depending on what mother nature has presented to winemakers at harvest time. California has the most consistent weather conditions of any country. Even the most disappointing of recent vintages in California, the 2011, showed well in some varietals as select winemakers worked hard to get the maximum out of the harvest. But countries like Italy every so often contend with a headache called mistral, a hurricane-like weather condition that can roar in from the north and virtually destroy crops. Reputable wineries have been known to plough under their grapes at harvest rather than bottle a bad vintage. 2015 had no such problem. I analyzed Wine Spectator’s recent Top 100 wines of the world out of more than 15,000 released and tasted this year, and indeed Italian wines scored as well as the U.S. with Tuscany topping any district in the

Traditional Mexican food at family-run Hacienda de Vega

F

or years I’ve heard good things about the original Hacienda de Vega in Escondido then in Carlsbad and when I heard they opened in early 2018 near Rancho Santa Fe it was about time to check them out. The new 4,200-square foot Rancho Santa Fe Plaza location in the former Bentley’s location has a smaller footprint than the former 1-acre Escondido location with with 114 seats indoors and 115 on the beautiful patio. It also has a private dining room with a communal table and a full bar. They gutted the former Bentley’s space and put in all new furnishings, including a new wood floor and new furniture and decor from Mexico. The dining room now features a nice fountain, hanging lanterns and illuminated trees. It’s nestled in a colonial-inspired building reminiscent of a center square in Mexico with cobblestone patios and 32-yearold Jacaranda trees overhanging candlelit tables. It’s a fairly obvious translation but for those without any Spanish, Hacienda de Vega translates into “House of Vega� and it’s the Vega family that opened their first location in Escondido in 2003. The first Hacienda de Vega in Escondido was a fully owned and operated family venture run by Patricia and Alonso Vega. It was by mere chance and

One auto parts man told me it would take $200 to replace one small part of my seat belt — and this was 25 years ago. After I stopped laughing and choking, I told him my funeral would probably cost less than that. Meanwhile, my dad fixed it with $2 worth of parts and a million dollars worth of knowledge. Eventually, when I was too far away for him to do the actual work, I would do the next best thing. I would call and describe the noises and other various symptoms of my latest car ailment, and he would give me one or two probable causes, complete with exactly what needed to be done to fix it.

Being able to tell, rather than ask, saved me enormous time and money. It made it very hard for them to flim-flam me. If they tried, I would just call my dad and have him talk to them. It worked like a charm. The debutantes of Boston can keep their fame and fortunes. I’ll bet their fathers wouldn’t know a transmission bearing from a flywheel. Those poor little rich girls have to go through life paying auto mechanics to take twice as long to do half as much. They can never be certain that the job was done right, and their mechanic never cared about the safety of that car’s passenger like my daddy did. There’s no warranty in the world like a birth certificate. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who thinks a car should just last forever. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

combination plates or American-style yellow cheese on the dishes. Patricia developed the original menu, from beginning to end. A long journey brought her to her mid-life transition from Mexican homemaker to San Diego restaurateur. She was introduced to the joys of cooking at a very young age and spent many happy hours in the kitchen helping out with family meals and holiday feasts. Having done a lot of social entertaining she decided to acquire a more formal training and attended the Maricu Culinary Arts Institute where she was certified as a “Mayora� in Traditional Mexican

she calls “the flavors of my peopleâ€? and developed her own culinary style. She is now retired but Patricia Vega continues to develop ideas on her spare time and regularly supervises the creation of them from paper to table as well as the quality control of her original menu items. That is always a good sign! Speaking of the menu, it’s a good one but there are dishes that stand out and have folks driving from all over San Diego to experience. Their mole is legendary and is one of those dishes that people flock to the restaurant for. The Queso de Vega is their oldest, simplest and most popular appetizer and I can attest to the yum factor of that dish. TampiqueĂąa is one of Mexico’s most traditional dishes, which can be found, practically, in every city of the country and is another big seller. It’s a filet strip, rice, beans, chicken taquito, mole sauce and guacamole. On the seafood side the Ajillo Mahi Mahi is a

very light and flavorful dish infused with imported chiles. The Sabana Invierno is layers and layers of different flavors that make this Ÿ-pound beefsteak melt in your mouth plus Manchego cheese which is an interesting twist. There are several soups available but the Sopa Azteca is the standout. It’s a truly traditional tortilla soup that starts with beef broth and spice after spice. For dessert the Churros are the way to go served with 3 dipping sauces. As mentioned there is a full bar and the 18 oz. Hacienda Margarita, a secret house original is a favorite. There is a modest selection of 35 wines from Latin America. Monte Xanic from Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe and Maestro Dobel tequila from Jalisco, Mexico are represented plus selections from Chile and Argentina. The restaurant is now serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch and is located at 162 Rancho Santa Fe Road, Encinitas.

Audrey Geisel, widow of Dr. Seuss, dies at 97 in La Jolla REGION — Audrey Geisel, the widow of Dr. Seuss and a longtime La Jolla resident, died last week at her Mount Soledad home, it was reported Dec. 21. She was 97. Random House Chil-

dren’s Books and the official Dr. Seuss Facebook page announced that she died Dec. 19. Audrey Geisel was born in Chicago in 1921 and was raised by her mother, a Norwegian immigrant,

according to an obituary published in the San Diego Union-Tribune on Friday. Her father was a singer and dancer, and soon disappeared from her life. She grew up living with her mother, or family

friends, or, once, in foster care. She attended Indiana University as a nursing student, where she met her first husband, E. Grey Dimond, a pre-med student. They both worked at Massachusetts General Hospital, then moved to Kansas, where their two daughters were born, before moving to La Jolla in 1960. “I saw that and knew I’d stay here forever,” she later remarked on seeing the Pacific Ocean. Audrey Geisel married Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel in 1968. He published 20 books during their more than two decades of marriage,

including “The Lorax” and “Oh, the Places You’ll Go.” She is sometimes credited with moving his work more Geisel in the direction of social issues through books such as “The Lorax,” which has environmental themes, and the “The Butter Battle Book,” an anti-war story, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. She would tell Geisel he wasn’t just writing for children any more; the kids he first entertained had grown up and were now

reading his stories to their own offspring. She also had a hand in discovering lost Seuss manuscripts as she went through the mountain of material he left behind in desk drawers and closets. That led to the publication of “What Pet Should I Get?” in 2015. Theodor Geisel died in 1991, and his widow spent the next decades shepherding his legacy and donating to institutions he supported, including the San Diego Zoo and UC San Diego — where the Geisel Library is named after the two. Funeral plans are pending. — City News Service

DMV reminds motorists of new laws REGION — With the new year just around the corner, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) wants to inform the public about several new laws or changes to existing law that, unless otherwise noted, take effect Jan. 1, 2019. — Temporary License Plate Program (AB 516, Mullin): This law requires licensed California dealers, of new and used vehicles to attach temporary paper license plates on a vehicle at the point of sale if that vehicle does not display license plates previously issued by the DMV. The temporary license plates contain a unique number and expiration date. No vehicle can be driven off the dealership lot without the temporary license plate affixed to it unless it already has issued plates. The intent of this new law is to reduce the number of toll violators and improve safety for law enforcement. — Driving Under the Influence Ignition Interlock Device (SB 1046, Hill): From Jan. 1, 2019 to Jan. 1, 2026, this law mandates repeat offenders for driving under the influence (DUI) and first DUI offenders whose violations resulted in injury, to install an ignition interlock device (IID) for a period ranging from 12 to 48 months. This law also allows those who receive a suspension under the Administrative Per Se law to obtain an IID-restricted driving privilege, and receive credit toward their required IID restriction period if they are later convicted of a DUI. These provisions apply to DUI violations that involve alcohol or the combined use of alcohol and drugs. They do not apply to drug-only violations. Additionally, courts have the discretion to order a non-injury first DUI offender to install an IID for a period

of up to 6 months. If the court does not order IID installation, a non-injury first offender may apply for a driver license for IID restrictions or restrictions that allow them to drive to, from, and during their employment and to and from a DUI treatment program for 12 months. Previously, an IID pilot program was only in effect in Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Tulare counties. — Smog Check Changes and New Abatement Fees (AB 1274, O’Donnell): This law expands the existing smog check exemption to vehicles that are up to eight model years old, up from the current exemption of six model years. During the additional two years of exemption, these vehicles will pay an annual $25 smog abatement fee. The current annual $20 smog abatement fee for the first six years of exemption remains unchanged. — Driving Privilege for Minors (AB 2685, Lackey): This law repeals a juvenile court’s authority to suspend, restrict or delay the issuance of a driver license of a habitual truant or ward of the state for up to one year. The law clarifies that any suspensions or delays reported prior to January 1, 2019, remain in effect. — Helmets for Motorized Scooters, (AB 2989, Flora): Bicycle helmets are no longer required for riders of motorized scooters who are age 18 or older. It also amends existing law to prohibit a person from operating a motorized scooter on a highway with a speed limit greater than 25 miles per hour, unless it is within a Class IV bikeway as well as a Class II bikeway. However, it permits local authorities to authorize the operation of motorized scooters on roads with speed limits up to 35 miles per hour outside of a Class II or

Class IV bikeway. — Unsafe, unsecured loads on vehicles (AB 1925, Choi): This law requires the DMV to include at least one question addressing laws pertaining to driving with an unsafe, unsecured load in at least 20 percent of the knowledge tests administered to driver license applicants. Unsecured loads, such as ladders, buckets and loose items in the back of pickup trucks, can be dangerous for motorists when they fall onto the road. Therefore, all vehicle loads must be covered or secured. — Green and White Clean Air Vehicle exemptions expire Jan. 1, 2019. in High-Occupancy Vehicle Lanes (AB 544, Bloom). As previously announced, AB 544 created a new program to grant low-emission vehicles and transitional zero-emission vehicles access to high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes for an approximate four-year period, regardless of the vehicle occupancy level. Vehicles displaying these decals will no longer have access to HOV lanes. Vehicles that were issued a green or white decal between Jan. 1, 2017 and March 1, 2018 are eligible to apply for a red decal that grants them access to HOV lanes until Jan. 1, 2022. The DMV notified these customers of their eligibility by mail. The DMV will issue light purple decals in 2019 that will grant access to HOV lanes until Jan. 1, 2023. Decals are available to applicants who have not applied for or received a consumer rebate pursuant to the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project, unless they meet annual income requirements. For more information or to apply, visit DMV’s Clean Air Vehicle Decals webpage. Visit the California Air Resources Board website for additional information on vehicle eligibility.
