Solana Beach sixth graders return to class
Mitigation strategies help ensure safe return
THE VISTA NEWS
By Bill Slane
SOLANA BEACH – The Solana Beach School District welcomed back its sixth-grade students to the classroom this past Monday, February 8, as the school district works to have all of their grade levels back on campus by March 1. “We continue to move forward with our phasein of additional students and additional days,” said Assistant Superintendent Sabrina Lee at the school board’s February 11 meeting. “We have just an immense amount of gratitude for our staff. From our teachers to our custodians as well our principals and department leads. This has really been a coordinated team effort.” The Solana Beach district has been bringing students back to its seven school campuses in phases since October 12 when students with disabilities returned in special day classes. Kindergarten was the first full class to return on November 9. The board has reported an increase in both engagement and work completion since students have returned to class, along with improvements in social and emotional well-being. Board Vice President Debra Schade, speaking on some possible next steps, suggested that teachers begin wearing double masks as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention TURN TO SCHOOLS ON A14

Condominium owners divided over tree removal By Dustin Jones
ENCINITAS — A handful of condominium owners at the Rosebay Falls community in Encinitas are rallying against the homeowners association board of directors in hopes of saving more than a dozen trees scheduled to come down at the end of the month. Last October, the three-person board that governs the property voted in favor of spending $21,000 to remove 15 trees from the property. A group of residents who live on the property A GROUP of residents are protesting the HOA board of di- full-time is protesting the rectors’ decision to cut down more than a dozen trees on decision, arguing there is the property.

down and the removal is a misuse of HOA funds. Linda Flach Corl and her husband, Terry Corl, have been spearheading efforts to save the trees. The couple believes the board is acting in its own interests, and not serving the interests of the community. The Corls not only hope to stop the trees from being cut down but also to have the board of directors recalled and replaced with a five-member board. “A certified arborist said only one tree had to be removed or heavily trimmed, the rest are healthy,” Linda said. Rosebay Falls is a small
condominium community located just east of I-5 along Encinitas Boulevard. The property has 54 units with 52 owners, but approximately half of the owners live out of town and rent out their apartments. Some of the units have peek-a-boo views of the ocean and Moonlight Beach. A handful of the residents believe the board selected specific trees to cut down in hopes of increasing the property value of their units, but the board denied the accusations.

Fair board to revisit low-income housing at Fairgrounds By Bill Slane
22ND DAA board said it will need to consider the implications of the California Environmental Quality Act before entering into an agreement with the city of Del Mar. File photo
plan at the board’s public meeting. “The main fairgrounds property, including the overflow lots, are part of the coastal zone.” The California Coastal Commission has issued permits to the 22nd DAA in regards to the annual county fair and horseracing. Caplan says the language
in the permit is limiting in such a way that building housing units on the property would not be allowed as written. “In other words, because the permit doesn’t specifically authorize the use of this property for affordable housing, this special condition would pre-
vent the district from doing so without either requesting that the commission amend the coastal development permit, or seeking a new permit from the Coastal Commission,” Caplan said. The board says they will also need to consider the implications of the California Environmental Qual-
San Dieguito teachers feel ‘under attack’ amid pandemic Pressure grows for students to return to schools By Dustin Jones
ENCINITAS — A number of San Dieguito Union High School District teachers feel “under attack” as public pressure mounts to get students back into the classroom, both parents and educators told The Coast News. Ann Cerny, an eighthgrade social studies teacher at Earl Warren Middle School in Solana Beach, said even though teachers are putting in extra hours, they are bombarded by parents who believe their efforts aren’t enough. “The thing the teachers are struggling with the most is that we are constantly under attack, vilified,” Cerny said. “They want to find someone to blame… it’s easy to bash the teachers. The teachers are feeling beaten up, and I feel like I could do this really hard job if I had the support for the community. We don’t feel like we are being treated as professionals.” Cerny said the workload for many teachers has drastically increased since the pandemic sent students home last spring. Transitioning lesson plans from in-person learning to the digital space can more than double the workload, she explained. For the first time in her 27 years of teaching,
Cerny is only able to plan her classes a day or two in advance; teach, plan, grade, repeat. One parent, Heather Dugdale, said teachers have been vilified on social media platforms to the point where they have to defend themselves. Some comments suggested that teachers who don’t feel safe returning to campus should be replaced by substitutes. Dugdale worries that when the dust settles and students finally return to campus, there may not be enough quality educators left to teach them. “I’ve never felt so much community divisiveness and lack of compassion and collaboration than I have in this process,” Dugdale said. “Why have we decided teachers are the enemy here?” As vaccines for the virus continue to roll out and cases begin to subside following the holiday season surge, cases in San Diego County have bounced between about 568 to 1,600 new cases per day in recent weeks. Additionally, the number of people hospitalized has nearly doubled since the beginning of the year. According to the San Diego County coronavirus website, teachers will be part of the next wave to receive a vaccine, which Cerny believes will allow educators to safely return to schools. “Get us vaccinated now and we could be ready for a phased reopening by the
middle or end of March,” she said. “I think that’s really the answer, the one thing that would make things work.” Like everyone else, teachers want to return to in-person learning, Cerny said, and many teachers miss their students. “Nothing is easy about teaching, it’s always multitasking, but in person is much more connected and fun, there isn’t a question about that,” Cerny said. “I love my job and I want my students back in the classroom, but we’re not in a perfect world right now.”
Schenk of the 22nd DAA said that due to the issues raised by their legal counsel, he recommended the board not enter into a binding agreement with the city of Del Mar at this time. “I would suggest to the board that we continue with the resolution of 2013 that we are intent and our purpose is to work with the city of Del Mar but that we do not enter into an [memorandum of understanding] at this date,” Schenk said. Board President Richard Valdez says he has reached out to board directors Kathlyn Mead and Don Mosier about potentially spearheading an ad hoc committee continuing discussions with Del Mar officials regarding this issue. On the motion to create an ad hoc committee for that purpose, the board voted yes unanimously. Valdez will likely officially form that committee at the board’s special meeting on Feb. 23 or March 9.

ity Act, or CEQA, before entering an agreement with the city. Under CEQA, projects such as the proposed affordable housing may be subject to a detailed study called an Environmental Impact Report to determine the environmental impact of the construction. Because the board is in charge of the property and would be leasing the land for use of affordable housing, they would then be the lead agency that makes it responsible for compliance with CEQA. “This is something the board would need to comply with before it enters into a binding agreement that would require the construction and maintenance of affordable housing,” Caplan said. Caplan also notes that the CEQA process of conducting an initial study and completing an Environmental Impact Report would take “a number of years.” Director Frederick
DEL MAR — The 22nd District Agricultural Association voted Tuesday, Feb. 9, not to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the City of Del Mar regarding its request to build low-income housing on the Del Mar Fairgrounds, but motioned to create an ad hoc committee to continue discussions on the proposed project. The city first approved a formal letter requesting the construction of low-income housing on the fairgrounds in October of last year with the goal of creating at least 51 affordable housing units on the fairgrounds. The 22nd DAA, the state board charged with operating the Del Mar Fairgrounds, was concerned with where it stands with meeting regulations to complete the project. “The first requirement would be compliance with the California Coastal Act,” said DAA Counsel Josh Ca-

Faulconer looking like main GOP hope for a breakthrough
Letters to the Editor Carbon pricing legislation needed The US Chamber of Commerce updated its Position on Climate Change last month, adding their support for a “market-based approach to accelerate greenhouse gas emissions reductions.” More than 3500 US economists from across the political spectrum have signed a statement saying a market-based approach, requiring fossil fuel com-
panies to pay a fee that is proportional to the amount of carbon pollution the fuels will emit when burned, is the most cost-effective and economically efficient way to fight climate change. Environmental organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund, the leaders of the Environmental Defense Fund and the Nature Conservancy, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and San Diego 350.
org are also calling for a carbon pollution fee. The Biden administration is serious about climate change and will sign legislation passed by Congress. I encourage Mike Levin, Darrell Issa, Juan Vargas, Scott Peters, and Sara Jacobs to support carbon pricing legislation in Congress. Larry Peranich San Diego
Suggestions for parking problem The most cherished parking, over look spaces above the ocean at the bottom of “C” Street/Moonlight Beach in Encinitas needs to be looked at and addressed. I’ve made phone calls to the city over the years and have been told my suggestions would be addressed, but nothing has ever changed. A 30 minute time limit would allow so many more people per day the opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee or a sandwich in their
car while taking in this spectacular view. Seniors and disabled persons who might not otherwise enjoy access to the beach could benefit as well. Perhaps too, in winter months when whale watching is an added bonus, increasing the opportunity for sharing seems only fair. As a 35 year resident of Encinitas and Cardiff, I visit this site frequently. What I’ve witnessed more often times than not, are hoarders who spend the entire day camped out,
many of those who live in their vehicles taking advantage of the priceless real estate they monopolize. Additionally, especially in summer months, are lifeguards and camp counselors who I can only assume are parked for 6-8 hours. What a shame this beautiful resource has not been addressed and better monitored. Kevin Dodson Cardiff
Vista should expand smoke-free protections I think Vista should have smoke-free protections for outdoor dining. This is important because it protects my family, me, and others affected by secondhand smoke. Members of my family
suffer from terrible headaches, and the smell of cigarette smoke makes it worse. Now is the right time for Vista to adopt the same policy as Escondido because having smoke-free
outdoor dining would give us more restaurant options to dine at without having to worry about secondhand smoke. Daisy Aguilar Vista High School

he last time San Diego elected a moderate Republican mayor with strong potential for appealing to voters statewide, it was Pete Wilson, a onetime state assemblyman who later won election to the U.S. Senate and two terms as governor. Now, while Californians think about possibly recalling Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, there’s San Diego’s recently termedout ex-Mayor Kevin Faulconer, who figures to be on both the recall’s list of possible replacement governors and the state’s June 2022 primary ballot. Faulconer hopes to take a page from the playbooks of both Wilson and ex-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Like Wilson, he’s busily purveying a message of moderation and effectiveness. Like Schwarzenegger, he hopes a recall can propel him to the next level of politics. With Faulconer as mayor, San Diego was the largest American city with a Republican governor. Now, the other major GOP figure planning to be on the recall list, John Cox, has devoted the recall season’s first major TV commercial to blasting Faulconer. Cox, a big loser to Newsom in 2018, knows who is his main threat this time. Faulconer has sometimes sought to downplay his Republican identity in this state where the GOP label has lately meant certain defeat for anyone seeking statewide office other than the movie muscleman Schwarzenegger. Some Republicans hope Faulconer can rescue them, giving California a Republican very different from the hugely unpopular (in California) President Trump. But Faulconer sometimes makes moves that
thomas d. elias
belie his image as a moderate. One came in January, when he endorsed former U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa to replace the disgraced and resigned San Diego Republican Duncan Hunter in a Mexican-border congressional seat. Issa, hardly a moderate, “retired” in 2018 from his former seat in north San Diego County when the district became too liberal for him to expect reelection. The Hunter district leans far more to the right. Faulconer took some risk in endorsing Issa, a persistent harrasser of ex-President Barack Obama while Issa chaired the House Government Operations Committee through much of the last decade. Then there was an appearance by Trump on Fox News last June, just after Faulconer visited the Oval Office. “(Faulconer) was just in my office, great guy,” Trump said. “He came up to thank me for having done the (border) wall because it’s made such a difference. He said it’s like day and night; he said people (had been) flowing across and now nobody can come in.” Faulconer quickly denied saying any of that, his office claiming he and Trump discussed only a trade deal. For sure, Newsom can use the Fox News tape against him, and never mind Faulconer’s denial. But Faulconer hopes to win over more voters with another move than he might lose with any of that. Besides his own cam-
paign, he plans to sponsor a statewide ballot initiative on the homeless issue aimed for the 2022 election, claiming San Diego has had more success on this than other large cities. Faulconer wants the still-unwritten measure to make it easier for cities and counties to “encourage” homeless individuals to accept psychological treatment and shelter beds. He also wants to roll back some laws like the winning Propositions 47 and 57, which reduced penalties for drug use and crimes like thefts and car burglaries valued under $950. “California has lost its way on homelessness,” he said in a speech. “We have to speak the truth about what causes homelessness (referring to drug addiction and mental illness, as well as high rents and home prices).” Faulconer said San Diego cut homelessness after a hepatitis outbreak by sending nurses and paramedics to “every riverbed, canyon and street corner, vaccinated more than 100,000 persons, sanitized streets and built four bridge shelters.” That dropped his city’s homeless count by 9% in 2019, Faulconer said, the only significant city in California with any reduction. Faulconer’s stances on many things almost replicate Schwarzenegger’s, and Schwarzenegger remains the only Republican elected statewide since 1998. But he was a famed movie star and Faulconer is neither famous nor an actor. So the jury remains out on the mayor’s statewide political viability. But so far, despite Cox’s claim to the contrary, the state GOP has no better hope. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Local NAACP president named Constituent of the Month By Samantha Nelson
REGION — Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) has named Satia Austin, president of the North San Diego County NAACP, as his Constituent of the Month for February. Levin is recognizing “the inspiring local leader” for her activism work with the district’s young adults. “Every February, we celebrate Black History Month, and this year, I am honored to highlight Satia as an incredible member of my community,” Levin said in his Congressional Record statement about Austin.
Austin’s parents stressed the importance of education, personal responsibility and achievement, which later became her guiding principles in
her career in youth advocacy and activism. Austin now serves not only as North County’s regional NAACP president since 2013 but also as state advisor for the Youth and College Division for California and Hawaii and the adult representative for Region I of the National NAACP Youth Works Committee. For more than a decade in these advising roles, Austin mentors and guides younger NAACP leaders with decision making, planning, following rules and guidelines and more. “It’s a big, whole role,” Austin said.
Austin has been working with Levin since the year he was elected into office. More recently she sat down with Levin and other various regional leaders to discuss police accountability. “This past year, we experienced a nationwide awakening to systemic racism in America,” Levin said. “We have much more work to do to confront inequality in our country, but I’m thankful for residents like Satia who are passionate about helping underserved youth succeed As we continue to come together to address racial injustice, leaders like Satia bring me
hope and inspiration.” Austin said she was shocked and humbled to hear that she had been chosen as Levin’s Constituent of the Month. “I wanted to make sure there was no one else more deserving when I found out,” she said. “For me to be even considered is amazing.” Austin wants to make sure everyone is still coming and working together to advance democracy “for everyone in the world.” “The work is still not over,” she said. Each month, Levin recognizes outstanding North County San Diego
and South Orange County residents who go above and beyond for their communities. Levin was also recently recognized for his new role as vice chair of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. He will also continue to serve as Chair of the Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity, with jurisdiction over veterans’ education, employment, training, housing programs, readjustment of service members to civilian life and civil relief. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is located in the 49th District, which Levin represents.
Students stay on campus despite COVID-19 outbreak By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO – The Escondido Union School District will continue in-person learning despite almost 200 students and staff having to quarantine because of COVID-19 outbreaks since returning to in-person learning on Feb. 2. As of Feb. 9, the EUSD’s website dashboard reported 188 in quarantine (158 students, 30 staff members), the district reported a total of 96 in quarantine just two days after classes were reopened. Most of those are from Mission Middle School, which had 32 quarantined students and 10 quarantined staff members as of Feb. 9 and Farr Avenue, which had 44 students and 5 staff members under quarantine. Quarantines will last for 10 days. At Pioneer Elementary, 25 students and 4 staff members are under quarantine. Since September 2020, the district has seen 476 positive COVID-19 cases, 942 quarantined students and 271 quarantined staff members. The district held a board meeting on Feb. 11 to discuss the district’s reopening and decided to maintain in-person learning despite the rising number of students and staff being quarantined. “It is imperative that we are united in our efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 in order to prevent another surge, to keep our community safe, and to maintain on-campus instruction. This means we need your cooperation with
all pandemic protocols,” the district said. The district also said that the cases were not transmitted at the schools and that they involve individuals who were already infected when they got on campus. Back in December, EUSD issues a temporary suspension on in-person learning after a high number of quarantines led to staffing shortages. According to the district’s dashboard, there were more than 300 students and roughly 100 staff members quarantined when the suspension was implemented. The district then further postponed the on-campus learning start date from Jan. 12 to Feb. 2. On the EUSD website, the district has listed reminders as students continue on-campus learning, urging families to stay cautious: “Do not send your child to school if they are sick in any way; if they are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test; if your child has symptoms of or has tested positive for COVID-19; or if your child has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Wear a face mask at all times outside of your home. Wash hands frequently. Maintain physical distance when engaging with anyone outside your household. Avoid all unnecessary gatherings.” EUSD’s no-cost food distributions will continue as scheduled.

Kelly robotics team strives for inclusion By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The Kelly Elementary School Robotics team is striving for inclusion by fundraising and authoring a book in honor of their special needs teammate. Over the past year, the team has expanded its scope thanks to the team’s inspiration, Bailey Benton, a special needs teammate who is diagnosed with autism, Down Syndrome and cerebral palsy. The ComoFun team began this robotics season with a simple mission: fitness. The group helped design a chariot for Benton so she could enjoy going on runs with friends and family. The team also runs with Benton twice each week while wearing masks. But now the team is blasting forward with a drive for inclusion, fundraising and even authoring a book. A new mission is one of inclusion and how to teach kids and adults how to approach and make friends with people with special needs. “I feel like it’s be-
come so much more than this robotics competition,” said Nicole Buchanan, the team’s coach. The team, which consists of 11-year-old fifth-graders Olivia Johnson, Connor Marshall, Bradley Lyon, Emery Cramond, Alana Gomes, Moorea Marchi, Benton and 9-year-old third-grader Griffin Marchi, has pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep their minds busy. They started with the First Lego League challenge of fitness, so they designed a chariot. Then they connected with a Dutch company, Infento, to see how to prototype their design, which features a run-walk capability. The concept is Benton would be pushed for much of the run or race, but at the finish line, the chariot could turn into a walker so she, or other special needs people, could cross the line on their own. Johnson called it a “transformer.” While the team was in the midst of designing Benton’s chariot, they also partnered with Ains-
ley's Angels of America in Southern California, a special needs nonprofit. As the COVID-19 pandemic wiped out running competitions, the team joined a virtual 5K run through the nonprofit for people to do on their own. As a result, they raised $3,005 to donate to the nonprofit with plans for more. Between outside projects, the team created a student inclusion leadership program at Kelly, which has two students per class as conduits to creating a more inclusive atmosphere for special needs students, Buchanan said. Also, the ComoFun team leads a virtual fitness class with two other special needs classes for 20 minutes per class focusing on mental and physical fitness. “All of our experience with meeting our friend Bailey, we want other kids to have a good inclusion journey and being friendly to kids with disabilities,” Moorea Marchi said. Finally, the team decided to get into the world of publishing. So, Marchi
wrote a book titled, “Innovate 8 and the Original Adventures of Opal.” The team also hopes to get the book into all of Carlsbad’s elementary schools, too. Each team member, or a small group, plans on writing a book with Johnson and Moorea Marchi about a deaf student. It is based on a relationship the team formed with Cece Bell, who is deaf and authored “El Deafo.” After meeting Bell and learning about her experiences, Johnson said she and Marchi both want to learn American Sign Language. “Each book is from a different character’s point of view and this one they have a new student in their class who is deaf, so they learn sign language,” Johnson said. The team is also setting up a website to sell their recent book. The 55-page book promotes empathy, inclusion, compassion and friendship with tips on how to approach those with special needs, along with facts about Down syndrome.

San Diego County to expand vaccine pool in March By City News Service
REGION — San Diego County’s COVID-19 numbers are headed in the right direction, leaders said Wednesday, Feb. 17, even as the county reported 539 new infections of the virus and 57 deaths. San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said a supply chain issue with vaccines last weekend has been resolved but it shows how thin the margins are for delays and mistakes in the system. A delayed shipment of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine arrived in the county following a shortage that forced some vaccination sites to dramatically slow the pace of inoculations or completely reschedule appointments over the holiday weekend. The shipment was scheduled to arrive Feb. 12 but was delayed for an unspecified reason before finally arriving Tuesday. Of 765,500 doses of the vaccine the county has received, 663,194 have been administered, more than 3,000 are awaiting processing and 98,000 are accounted for by appointments. “You can see we are running very, very lean,” Fletcher said. The county now has five vaccine super stations and 15 smaller neighborhood
state permits elementary schools to reopen as soon as counties reach an adjusted average new daily case rate of 25 per 100,000 residents. In-person classes cannot resume for seventh though 12th grades until the county’s rate of new COVID-19 cases falls to seven per 100,000 residents. San Diego County’s seven-day testing positivity percentage is 6.4%, placing the county in the red tier of the four-tiered state re-opening plan for that metric. The state uses each county’s worst metric — in this case the adjusted case rate — and assigns counties to that tier. The county’s health equity metric, which looks at the testing positivity for areas with the lowest healthy conditions, is 9.7% and is in the purple tier.

When the new eligibility takes effect March 15, the number of Californians overall who will be eligible to receive shots under existing guidelines will increase to as many as 19 million. To date, just over 5 million doses have been administered across California. The current vaccines require each person to receive two doses, spaced three to four weeks apart.
Testing program for schools, child care centers begins
REGION — In an effort to help schools reduce the risk of COVID-19 outbreaks as they resume in-person instruction, UC San Diego and San Diego County are testing a program to detect the virus which causes COVID-19 at schools and child care centers. Modeled after UCSD’s Return to Learn — an approach to safely resume teaching, learning and research at a university -- Safer at School Early Alert system is scaled for individual schools and child care centers without the resources available at a research university. Through daily wastewater and surface monitoring, the alert system tests for the presence of particles of SARS-CoV-2, the COVID19-causing coronavirus. Combined with a responsive testing strategy, the aim is to quickly identify children or staff members who are infected with COVID-19 before an outbreak occurs. Ten San Diego County-area TK-8 schools and two child care centers are participating in this SARSCoV-2 early detection program, funded by the county and designed by UCSD. When Vista Grande Elementary School began offering a hybrid-teaching model with 50% in-person classroom capacity, it instituted daily symptom screening, social distancing and requiring masks be worn by all students and staff. The school’s principal, Tita Cordero-Bautista, and David Miyashiro, Cajon Valley Union School District superintendent, enrolled the campus in Safer at School Early Alert. “The health, safety and well-being of our staff and students is a top priority,” said Cordero-Bautista. ``Our educators are using every resource at their disposal to foster an engaging learning experience filled with rigor. Still, we understand that distance learning is not ideal for every student or family. “Many in our community are at high-risk for COVID-19. By participating in the Safer at School Early Alert system, we hope to ease concerns about school safety so that parents and students are comfortable at school while building meaningful relationships and learning,’’ she said.

Bail $1M for woman held in Butterfly slaying
Escondido City Council gets climate plan update
By City News Service
By Tigist Layne
SOLANA BEACH — Bail was set at $1 million Feb. 17 for a Solana Beach woman charged with murdering her stepfather, Butterfly Farms co-founder Thomas Merriman. Jade Sasha Janks, 37, faces life imprisonment if convicted of killing Merriman, whose body was found inside her Nardo Avenue home on the afternoon of Jan. 1. Sheriff’s deputies went to the home that day to check on Merriman’s welfare, and “due to the circumstances,” sheriff’s homicide investigators assumed responsibility of the investigation, sheriff’s Lt. Thomas Seiver said. A search warrant was obtained, and detectives found Merriman's body inside the residence, according to Seiver. The criminal complaint alleges the killing was premeditated and took place on Dec. 31. Janks was arrested soon after the discovery of the victim and had been held without bail prior to Wednesday’s hearing. Though no details have been disclosed regarding a suspected motive or cause of death, Deputy District Attorney Teresa Pham argued in court that Janks represents both a flight and safety risk. The prosecutor said Merriman had recently been released from a hospital and thus was a “vulnerable victim,” and Janks was in “a position of trust” being his stepdaughter. Pham also said she believes Janks has financial resources and close ties to South Africa through her family, and frequently travels abroad. “It is quite easy for her, if she was to make bail, to buy a plane ticket and just go wherever she wants to go to avoid a very serious charge that she has,” Pham argued. Janks’ attorney, Ricky Crawford, disputed that his client represented any threat to the community. She has no prior criminal history, according to the defense attorney, who said the prosecution had not presented any facts to show Janks was a threat to anyone. Crawford also said he submitted around 60 character reference letters to the court, which he said indicate his client is not a danger to the community or a flight risk. While San Diego County Superior Court Judge David Berry said he believed Janks was entitled to some amount of bail, he ordered that she surrender her passport and be subject to GPS monitoring should she post the $1 million bail. Her next court date is a March 3 readiness conference.

Former council candidate’s defamation lawsuit dismissed By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — A judge has dismissed a former city council candidate’s defamation suit against her former workers who claimed she hadn’t paid them. Most recently, Michelle Gomez was a candidate for Oceanside City Council’s District 4 seat. She and several other candidates lost to Councilman Peter Weiss, the city’s former mayor. Last year, several people who worked for Gomez’s 2018 supervisor campaign alleged that she still owed them money for services. One of those people was Robert Leahy, who was contracted to post signs for Gomez in 2018. He filed a wage claim against Gomez last summer. Gary Gartner, a San Diego consultant who worked as a campaign strategist and fundraiser for Gomez, claimed the former candidate still owed him $2,500. Gomez fired back by filing a defamation lawsuit in August 2020 against Leahy, Gartner and several others who went public with claims that Gomez hadn’t paid them. She complained that the defendants had provided express and implied defamatory statements about her to local newspapers and media outlets. Not long after, defendants Katherine Hogue, Dan Castillo, Matt Duburg and Luca De Sanctis Barton were dismissed from the suit. Defendants Leahy, Gartner, former campaign field director Rachel Bartlett and The Line Printing Company out of Chula Vista remained named in the suit. Leahy filed an anti-SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) motion to strike against Gomez in return. An anti-SLAPP motion requires a two-step process: the defendant must first establish that the challenged cause of action is defined as “protected activity,” and the plaintiff must then back up her original claim of defamation. In late January, Judge Cynthia A. Freeland granted Leahy’s motion to strike,
ESCONDIDO — The Escondido City Council met on Feb. 10 and heard a status update on the city’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) and provided feedback to staff to finalize the new CAP. The updated comprehensive plan, once completed, will outline strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stay consistent with state requirements. The city, which was in the first group of cities to prepare and adopt a CAP in the San Diego region, adopted its CAP in 2013 as was required by Assembly Bill (AB) 32, known as the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. “At a local level, acting on climate change means both reducing GHG emissions from activities within the city and helping the community adapt to climate change and improve its resilience over the long term,” the staff report said. “In general, CAPs can also help achieve multiple community goals in the long term such as lowering energy costs, reducing air pollution, supporting local economic development, and improving public health and quality of life.” Councilmembers gave direction to staff regarding specific items in the plan that should address things like affordable housing, outreach to diverse communities, plastic waste, public transportation, bike paths and more.

Vaccination participation at Silvergate blows away national averages SAN MARCOS, CA - February 18, 2021 - While only 10% of the general public in the United States has received a first-round COVID-19 vaccine shot, an impressive 93% of the residents, caregivers and staff at Silvergate Retirement Residence, operator of three senior living communities in north county San Diego, now have successfully received both rounds of the Pfizer vaccination. “When you’re a local operator, you can take more decisive action to protect your residents and employees,” said David Petree, Chief Executive Officer of AmeriCare Health & Retirement, owner of Silvergate San Marcos. “Through significant education and corporate incentives, our management team was able to convince the vast majority of both our residents and staff to participate in the vaccination process. I was incredibly impressed with the rate of participation they were able to achieve. I am so glad to see our team leading the industry in this effort. By establishing a safer senior living environment, we’ll now be able to open up to all kinds of new activities.” Vaccinations are now offered in California to anyone over the age of 65. However, seniors often struggle to secure a vaccination appointment, find the registration process confusing and have concerns about limited supply. As a Phase I priority location, Silvergate acted swiftly to secure an adequate supply of vaccine doses and arrange for multiple on-site clinic vaccination dates at the community. Silvergate residents benefited from a turn-key vaccine solution, with registration taken care of for them and shots delivered right where they live. As a result, more than 95% have completed the second round of vaccines and are now considered immune.
Currently across the nation, roughly 50% of
High Vaccination Rates Achieved Among Both Residents and Staff at Silvergate. health care workers in hospitals, nursing homes and long-term care communities have elected to receive the vaccination. Understanding this, Silvergate implemented a multi-faceted information campaign across all of their communities, coupled with attractive participation incentives, to counter common misinformation and personal bias among residents and staff. Silvergate’s additional efforts resulted in more than 90% of its eligible staff being vaccinated a rate far above the national averages. The measures Silvergate took to achieve such a high rate of vaccination within the community included individual meetings with staff to address personal concerns, dissemination of educational materials campus-wide, additional paid time off as a reward for participating, a day-of thank you gift card to Starbucks and an “I Got My COVID-19 Vaccine” shirt-collar
button to wear with pride. “I really feel like our management did a great job of helping everyone understand how important it is to get vaccinated,” said Christina Woolard, the Business Office Manager at Silvergate who worked to secure vaccine consent forms, register those receiving shots and help schedule second-round vaccinations for everyone who had an initial shot. “I’ve gotten to know and love all the residents here at Silvergate. We’re like one big family, and I want them to be protected from this pandemic as much as I want my own family to be shielded from it. I felt it was my duty to get vaccinated and was simply the right thing to do.” Many seniors have been reluctant to consider a move to a retirement community during the COVID -19 pandemic. With all Silvergate communities having delivered both rounds of vaccines at such high participation rates, now may be the ideal time for seniors to explore the protective bubble Silvergate offers. Community-wide vaccination success means new and exciting events and activities can be reintroduced safely and without delay.

Carlsbad woman claims record fifth world bobsled title By City News Service
Carlsbad resident Kaillie Humphries won the inaugural women’s monobob (single-person bobsleigh) world championship Sunday in Altenberg, Germany, increasing her career total to a record five world championships. Humphries entered Sunday's final two runs 0.04 seconds behind German Stephanie Schneider in the championships conducted by the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation at Altenberg, Germany. She took the lead by posting the fastest time on her third run, 59.59 seconds. On her final run, the 35-year-old Humphries had her best start time of the competition, 6.14 seconds, and set a track record, 59.47 seconds. “I’m ending on a high and I really just continue to think about how grateful I am to be here, to represent the United States, and to compete,” Humphries said. “It’s such a huge honor. I’m so happy.”
Humphries had a four-run combined time of 3:59.62. Schneider was second in 4:00.12. The women’s monobob will be an Olympic event for the first time at the 2022 Beijing Games. Humphries teamed with Lolo Jones to win the two-woman title on Feb. 6, becoming the first woman to win four world bobsled championships. Humphries also won the 2012, 2013 and 2020 world championship in the two-woman event, the first two competing for her native Canada. She became eligible to compete for the U.S. following her marriage in 2019 to Travis Armbruster, a former U.S. men’s bobsledder. Humphries won Olympic gold medals for Canada in the two-woman bobsled in 2010 and 2014 and a bronze in the event in 2018. She switched to representing the U.S. in 2019 because of abuse and harassment she claims she faced from the Canadian bobsled federation.

Youth sports advocates push to ‘get kids back on the field’ By Bill Slane
REGION — Let Them Play CA, a group of parents, coaches and students in California organized online, continues to push for state and local officials to allow high school and youth sports to continue as the COVID-19 pandemic lingers in San Diego County. The online group was co-founded on Facebook by Brad Hensley, a local San Diego father of a football player at Mission Hills High School. The group was started just six weeks ago but they say they are as close as they have ever been to getting student athletes back onto the playing field. “Six weeks ago we weren’t even an organization, but now we’re having daily correspondence with the governor and his staff,” Hensley said. “Our heads are down and we still have time to save the season for the seniors and get these kids back on the field so we continue to work.” The group says they have collected from 275 California high school football practices that show transmission rates of the COVID-19 virus among athletes and coaches to be low to non-existent. It is unclear how accurate those numbers may be, but experts like Dr. Richard Garfein, an infectious disease epidemi-
LET THEM PLAY FACEBOOK GROUP “Let Them Play CA” has nearly 60,000 members. Photo via Facebook
ologist and a professor of family medicine and public health at UCSD, say it all comes down to the students, coaches and parents, as well as the type of sport being played to determine how safe it is to play. “Firstly, it’s really important to know what the prevalence is in your community,” Garfein said. “The other factors are what sport it is, whether it’s indoors or outdoors, how it’s being
played, and how careful the coaches, parents and players are being in terms of maintaining proper distance, wearing masks when they can, handwashing, those types of things.” According to the CDC website, San Diego County’s current 7-day average of new cases per 100,000 persons is around 220. This rate puts the county under the CDC’s “high transmission” tier under new guide-
lines for reopening schools the public agency released Friday. Under that tier, the CDC suggests that all “sports and extracurricular activities are virtual only.” Hensley noted these are guidelines given by the CDC and the final determination is left to the state. “As parents, we wouldn’t recommend doing anything that is unsafe for
kids,” Hensley said. “We do know though that the current environment [of not playing youth sports] is unsafe for them.” The Let Them Play CA Facebook group, where much of the organizing takes place currently, has nearly 60,000 members where parents often post about the issues their kids are having while home without the ability to play sports with their schools. Also found on the page are documents containing stats they have collected regarding the transmission of the virus and the mental health state of kids without sports to fall back on. The page also has been prone to false or harmful information regarding the use of masks or the COVID-19 virus in general. In one post asking parents for suggestions on a type of mask for their child to use while playing volleyball, several group members suggested using different varieties of mesh masks with large openings that do not protect the wearer from the virus. While Hensley says his group advocates safety first for the student-athletes, it can be difficult to keep that kind of information off the page. “We were getting anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 new members a day, and we wanted that because our strength is our size and
scale,” Hensley said. “This is such a tough issue for parents. Conversations can go sideways pretty quick. But we continue to work with our members to get them to understand that these are the main guidelines.” Hensley also said the group is confident that once all is said and done, and parents and athletes know the rules, they will fully comply and conform with them once back playing their sports. Full compliance will be key according to Dr. Garfein to playing youth sports safely. “Are you willing to, as a parent, wear a mask when you’re sitting there watching your child play or while you’re waiting for them during their practice? Are your kids willing to wear a mask whenever they possibly can? Are you making sure the kids aren’t sharing equipment and if they are making sure you sanitize it in between use?” Garfein said. “If you’re willing to do all those things then you really can reduce the risk of youth sports and they can be played relatively safely.” Let Them Play CA says they are in constant contact with local and state officials and hope to hear an official statement about their request to lift the ban on youth sports soon from Sacramento.

Appeals panel upholds verdict against county for inmate injured at jail By City News Service
VISTA — An appeals court today upheld a multimillion-dollar verdict reached against San Diego County in the case of an Encinitas man who suffered serious brain damage following his arrest by sheriff’s deputies. David Collins was awarded more than $12.6 million by a jury in 2019 for injuries he suffered after falling and striking his head while in custody at the Vista Detention Center, with jurors finding that sheriff’s deputies and jail nurses were negligent regarding his arrest and the assessment of his medical condition, leading to life-altering injuries. Collins was arrested in November 2016 on suspicion of being drunk in public, though his attorneys said he was actually suffering from a condition called hyponatremia, which is caused by a sodium deficiency and resulted in slurred speech, hallucinations and difficulty walking. After falling twice at the jail, his attorneys alleged he was not immediately taken to a hospital, and when he did arrive, doctors attempted to raise his sodium levels, resulting in the development of an additional brain injury that caused permanent damage. At trial, defense medical experts testified Collins will require around-theclock medical care for life. He sued San Diego County, as well as the deputies and medical staff involved, and was awarded $12,617,674, though a judge
later reduced that award by half. He also sued Palomar Health, which settled with him for $2.75 million prior to the trial. The county appealed, contending the verdict should have been reversed or the case should be retried based on several alleged procedural errors, including an apparent inconsistency in the jury’s findings that two deputies were justified in arresting
Collins, yet were negligent. A three-justice panel of the Fourth District Court of Appeal wrote that even if the deputies were justified in arresting Collins due to his apparent public intoxication, they could have been negligent in interrupting attempts by a paramedic to assess his medical condition. The ruling cites testimony indicating that deputies handcuffed Collins
and took him away a few minutes after a paramedic began assessing him. County attorneys also alleged the jury was incorrectly instructed regarding who could be held liable, arguing the deputies should have been immune from liability due to harm caused by Palomar Health physicians or for injuries Collins sustained while in jail. The appellate panel disagreed, ruling the
county was relying on a state statute immunizing public entities and their employees for failing to obtain prisoners’ medical care after arrest in certain circumstances. The panel wrote that the alleged negligence — interrupting the paramedic and failing to urgently summon medical care for Collins — occurred prior to the arrest. The panel also disagreed with the county’s
assertion that one of the jail nurses should not have been held liable for an allegedly negligent evaluation of Collins. The county alleged that the nurse was only evaluating Collins’ fitness for jail and shouldn't have been held liable for negligent diagnosis and treatment, but the panel ruled that “the examination by a registered nurse here was for medical treatment.”

the dilemma, who wished to remain anonymous, said the board held a meeting last October and there wasn’t much opposition to the tree removal. The individual also said homeowners don’t have a right to a view, the same argument made by residents who want to keep the trees. John Wesley has lived on the property since 1992 and was one of the original board members. In his nearly 30 years at Rosebay, he has served on the board an estimated 20 times. The Corls, Wesley and other residents have reached out to homeowners in hopes of recalling the board. “According to the bylaws, you can’t remove one, you have to remove the whole board if 51% of the homeowners vote to remove the board,” Wesley said. “I believe we are very close to that.” The residents said they are waiting for out-of-state petitions to come in through the mail, but believe they have the votes they need to save the trees and replace the board. The anonymous individual argued only a small handful of residents want to keep the trees, while other residents are indifferent or in favor of the removal.

Oceanside Unified seeks community input to help rename school By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Unified School District is still accepting new school name recommendations for the combined San Luis Rey and Garrison Elementary Schools until Feb. 22. When San Luis Rey and Garrison Elementary Schools were combined during the 2019/2020 school year, it was determined that the new school created out of the two would undergo a renaming process as well. The idea behind renaming of the combined school, located on the current campus of San Luis Rey, is to help unite both schools as one. To choose a new name, a committee of Oceanside community members was formed to help guide the renaming process. Anyone in

the city was able to apply to be part of the Citizen Advisory Committee. According to OUSD
Communications Director Matthew Jennings, an independent committee chose a diverse group of 11 mem-
bers to serve on the Citizen Advisory Committee guiding the school’s renaming process. Board policy dic-
tates that the committee needs to be inclusive and represent the school community. “A completely separate group of individuals, independent from each other, reviewed all of the applications that were submitted with the applicant's names redacted in order to identify our committee of 11 members,” Jennings said via email. “I am not able to provide the names of the committee members at this time.” The committee was formed in December 2020 and began calling for name submissions in January of this year. Two co-chairs were elected within the committee to help guide the renaming process and ensure fidelity of the recommendations that will be later presented to the Board of Education. Anyone can submit a name recommendation for the school. Both the advisory committee and the communications office track name submissions. “The committee has already met two times to make sure the process is moving along,” Jennings
said. Originally the deadline for name submissions was Feb. 8 but it was later extended to Feb. 22. According to Jennings, the committee hasn’t reviewed any submissions yet but the district has received more than 300 suggestions so far. Between February and March, the committee will meet to narrow submissions down to three choices. Then, between April and June, the committee will present its recommendations to the Board for review and action. The Board must also hold a public hearing for community members to provide input on the renaming choice as well. According to board policy, a school will be renamed in recognition of the geographic area where the school is located, or individuals, alive or not, who have made “outstanding contributions, including financial contributions, to the school community” or “who have made contributions of statewide, national or worldwide significance.” Name submissions cannot be similar to the name of any existing district facility.

USD professor details costs of political violence in the US By City News Service
REGION — A University of San Diego professor and the Democracy Fund foundation released a report on Feb. 17 that details the physical, psychological and economic costs of political violence in the United States and concludes the health of American democracy requires strategic investment in community-led solutions. Andrew Blum, a Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies professor and executive director of the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice, took a look at extremism, hate crimes, armed militias and acts of police brutality and assessed the associated costs: injury and loss of life, trauma, property damage, lost business revenue and personal wages, and the acceleration of additional violence. Between 2016 and 2019, the FBI received reports of 27,730 hate crimes involving 34,074 victims. The group Stop AAPI Hate, which started tracking
anti- Asian hate crimes nationwide amid a major uptick in such crimes against that ethnic group, recorded more than 2,800 accounts by the end of 2020. “When political violence happens, it is right and proper that we first focus on the human cost, that is the loss of life and physical injury,'' Blum said. ``In the aftermath of these incidents, however, communities also wrestle with significant economic costs, including the radiating impact of grief and trauma, damage to property and lost revenue resulting from the disruption of economic activity. There is much that can and must be done to mitigate these impacts.” Following the Boston Marathon bombing, it is estimated that the city lost between $250 million and $330 million when it shut down for one day due to the manhunt for the bombers.

Marines begin shift from land to water-based operations Corps focuses on China’s weapon engagement zone in the Indo-Pacific By Samantha Nelson
CAMP PENDLETON — Changes are coming for the United States Marine Corps, and those changes will soon be reflected on base as well as offshore. For the last two decades, the Marine Corps has spent most of its time fighting in land-based wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, the Marine Corps is pivoting its focus toward more water-based operations in the Indo-Pacific. It is in this region where China’s weapon engagement zone is located, and the Marines need to be able to operate from within that zone. In March 2020, Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger released “Force Design 2030,” a report that explains his force structure plan and his vision for the Marine Corps by 2030. “Our current force design, optimized for largescale amphibious forcible entry and sustained operations ashore, has persisted unchanged in its essential inspiration since the 1950s,” Berger said in his report. “I am convinced that the defining attributes of our current force design are no longer what the nation requires of the Marine Corps.” Specifically, Berger ex-
plains the size, capacity and specific capability of the current force is unsuited to future operations. “Operating under the assumption that we will not receive additional resources, we must divest certain existing capabilities and capacities to free resources for essential new capabilities,” Berger said. He explained that reducing infantry battalions and their supportive organizations — direct support artillery, ground mobility assets, assault support aviation and other support capabilities based on ground and air — is the most logical way to approach divestment. With this shift to more water-based activity also comes a strengthened partnership with the U.S. Navy, under which the Marine Corps falls. The switch to amphibious operations is like returning the Marines to a purpose similar to its focus during World War II, when the Marine Corps was focused on amphibious missions in the Pacific. “This is us getting back to naval expedition,” said Col. Daniel Whitley, commanding officer at Camp Pendleton. “It’s really us supporting the Navy at sea.”

With the shift to a more amphibious nature, that leaves some questions about what to do with training out in the desert at 29 Palms, which is considered the largest Marine Corps base in the nation. It will also require changes to training units how to deploy. “We’re going through massive structure chang-
Contractor admits fraud in concrete sales used to build US Navy airfields abroad By City News Service
REGION — A concrete contractor went before a federal judge Wednesday in San Diego and admitted to providing false documents and faked test results in order to sell substandard concrete, which was used to build U.S. Navy airfields in the Republic of Djibouti. In addition to pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, Colas Djibouti, a French limited liability company, agreed to pay more than $12.5 million for making fraudulent representations regarding the quality of its concrete. Under the agreement, the company will forfeit $8 million, pay a monetary penalty of $2.5 million and another $2 million in restitution to the Department of the Navy. As part of its contracts with the Navy, the company was required to certify that its concrete met certain composition and characteristic specifications, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors say Colas Djibouti knew its concrete

did not comply with the specifications, and that its concrete was prone to early cracking, surface defects and corrosion of embedded steel. In one instance, the company was asked for an analysis for the water used in its concrete mix, and provided an analysis for a store-bought bottle of drinking water instead, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “Our sailors and Marines depend upon high-quality products and services from our Department of the Navy contractors in order to meet the department’s worldwide mission,” said acting Sec-
retary of the Navy Thomas W. Harker. “This outcome demonstrates that the Department of the Navy will continue to insist that our contractors must meet our high standards.”

es,” Whitley said. Whitley suggested changes could include working with Navy partners on board their different vessels or possibly work on San Clemente Island, which is owned by the Navy and is part of Los Angeles County. San Clemente Island made news last summer when 15 Marines and one
sailor were inside an amphibious assault vehicle as part of a routine training exercise when it took on water and sank off the island’s northwest boundary. Seven Marines escaped and survived but the remaining eight Marines sailor were killed. While the base figures out how changes on the
inside will look, the local outside world may not notice much of a difference besides potentially seeing more ships and vessels off the coast. “We won’t see more Marines but what we may see is potentially less out of 29 Palms and more training on Camp Pendleton and off the coast,” Whitley said.

Time to switch to clean renewable energy By Tigist Layne
San Diego County Solar is a local business based in Carlsbad. Since 2010, they’ve pursued their mission to help San Diego homeowners make the switch to clean, renewable energy. Their no-pressure, consultative approach can help you and your family learn more about solar energy and what it can do for your home. “We take into account the customer’s needs, we educate people about how it all works, what it will cost and what they can expect from solar. Then, if it makes sense to the homeowner, we install it.” said President Mike Davidson. “We offer the only the best products, expert system designs, and our own top-notch installers complete every installation. With over 90% of our business coming from referrals we spend little on marketing. So, everything that we provide adds up to a really good value where customers get great products and great service at very competitive prices.” San Diego County Solar continues supporting the community that supports them through partnerships with the Magdelena Ecke YMCA, Carlsbad Boys & Girls Club, San Diego Food Bank, The First Step House and more. “We are committed to investing in our community” Davidson said. “We are a local company, so
90% OF OUR business comes from referrals.
much of what we do stays here – money that comes into our hands spreads into the community. We also partner with a number of companies local to North County and greater San Diego.” “One of the things that really attracted me to solar is that once you have the equipment, the fuel is free, so you’re making your own energy to power your house,” Davidson said. “Once you put the solar panels up, you don’t have to pay anything to anyone for the fuel--every day when the sun comes up you start making power.” Many solar companies haven’t weathered the ups and downs of the industry. After 10 years, San Diego County Solar has been
around long enough for customers to have confidence they’ll be here to service them well into the future. They attribute their longevity to building a loyal referral base one job at a time. With solar, you can also store energy from your solar panels. This has become very popular with rural homeowners, as grid outages are now common during red flag warnings. Connecting solar power to the latest battery technology can provide backup power for home essentials when the utility grid is down. With the recent extension of the federal income tax credit, going solar also means thousands of dollars in tax savings. Along with better financing available
for solar through credit unions, there has never been an easier way to save money while increasing the value of your home. While electricity costs continue to rise, the cost of installing high-quality solar has come down, making this the perfect time to invest in renewable energy. With the lowest prices of the year happening now, San Diego County Solar’s experienced professionals can help you save money and protect the environment, all while promising a COVID-conscious and safe experience from start to finish.

Solana Beach man suspected in hit-and-run; pedestrian hurt By City News Service
the man behind the wheel of the sedan — which also hit a tree and lost a wheel in the crash — jumped out and ran off, pursued by several witnesses, Drake said. A short time later, a sheriff’s sergeant who happened to be in the area stopped the fleeing suspect, identified as 30-yearold Matthew Christian Wilkie of Solana Beach, and took him into custody, the lieutenant said. Wilkie was booked into Vista Detention Facility on suspicion of felony DUI and felony hit-andrun, according to jail records. He was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Feb. 19.
key areas: engaged leadership, social trust, social relationships, preparedness, and place attachment and collective efficacy — when members care about their community and believe they can change it for the better. “The insurrection on January 6th showed us just how serious the threat of political violence has become,'' said Joe Goldman, president of the Democracy Fund created by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. “Our democracy demands not just accountability for the many costs, but a stronger dedication to the long-term work of preventing violence in the first place by creating strong, connected communities,” Goldman said.

ENCINITAS — A 30-year-old Solana Beach man was behind bars Feb. 17 on suspicion of DUI and felony hit-and-run after allegedly leaving a pedestrian severely injured near Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, authorities said. The victim was struck by a black Ford Fusion that veered off the roadway in the area of Vulcan Avenue and West D Street, then plowed into a transit station about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to sheriff’s officials. Medics took the pedestrian, a man believed to be in his 40s, to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries, Deputy David Drake said. Following the wreck,

(CDC) has recently recommended to further inhibit the spread of COVID-19. “I would encourage our staff to do that,” Schade said. “I think that’s the next level now that we have more students on campus until we get our teachers fully vaccinated.” Schade also made a point to emphasize the importance of compliance with health and safety guidelines as the district continues to bring back more students. “This is working because we have behavioral compliance with our families and our teachers,” Schade said. “It’s important we try very hard to do the social distancing, the masking, not congregate in large groups. All of the things you're doing inside the school, practice outside the school so we can continue to provide, without interruption, this contact point for our stu-
dents.” The final two classes that are scheduled to return to in-person teaching are fourth grade on February 22 and fifth grade on March 1. The district has implemented several mitigation strategies to ensure a safe return to the classroom including requiring face coverings for all staff and students, barring students from mingling with students from a different grade level, enforcing a six-foot social distance policy, implementing staggered arrivals and dismal from campus among other safety strategies. “It has been a challenge that none of us expected to have,” Board President Vicki King said. “I know it couldn’t happen fast enough that we get the fourth and fifth graders back, and it’s coming on the horizon. I know I’m very excited that sixth grade is back and I’m looking forward to seeing those classrooms.”

UCSD researchers get $1.3M grant to study psychedelics on phantom pain By City News Service
REGION — The Psychedelics and Health Research Initiative at UC San Diego received a $1.3 million grant from the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation to fund a clinical trial investigating the therapeutic potential of psilocybin in treating phantom limb pain, it was announced Wednesday. Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound produced by many species of fungus, including so-called “magic mushrooms.” Phantom limb pain is pain originating from parts of the body no longer present, such as an amputated arm or leg. It is a form of neuropathic pain that actually originates in the spinal cord and brain. The grant will fund the first randomized, placebo-controlled human clinical trial examining the safety and efficacy of psilocybin in patients suffering from chronic phantom limb pain. The trial is also designed to explore the brain mechanisms involved, including possible alterations in brain circuitry. The trial is part of the PHRI, whose mission is to study the potential of psilocybin and related compounds in treating pain and promoting healing. “The therapeutic poten-

In 2018, Lin, Furnish, Ramachandran and others published a paper in Neurocase describing their collaboration, and in 2019, another account was published in the journal Regional Anesthesia & Pain Medicine. The World Health Organization estimates that there are more than 40 million amputees in the world, with up to 80% experiencing phantom limb pain. Military veterans exhibit the highest rates of amputation and chronic phantom limb pain, according to previous studies. Thirty amputees suffering from phantom pain will be enrolled in the threeyear clinical trial. Half of the participants will receive 25 milligrams of psilocybin on two occasions; the other half will receive two doses of niacin. Niacin was chosen as the placebo because it mimics some of the physical sensations that subjects may experience after taking psilocybin, but does not produce a “trip,” according to Furnish.

For Lin, the therapy provided pain relief, but only while the mirror was in place. As a field researcher and explorer for the National Geographic Society, Lin had traveled the world helping develop technologies to assist in archeological digs and similar activities. He was aware that other cultures used plant-based preparations to produce mind-altering, therapeutic effects. Lin procured some psilocybin, drove out to the desert, boiled it to create a tea and hooked up his leg mirror. He studied the illusion, removed the mirror, studied where his leg once had been and repeated the sequence, again and again. Within 45 minutes, he said, there was relief. “The pain was gone. I did handstands. It was a profoundly spiritual moment,” Lin said. “My mind had a map of my body and it was experiencing severe feedback issues, but it had to let go of that map through a sort of ‘state of ego death’ in which the psilocybin allowed the mind to reject the old map and create a

Geyer conducted basic research on the behavioral and neurobiological effects of psychedelics at UCSD. The PHRI has a briefer history, originating in 2016 with Albert Yu-Min Lin, a research scientist at the Jacobs School of Engineering and Qualcomm Institute, who lost his lower right leg in an off-road vehicle accident. During recovery and
rehabilitation, Lin experienced serious, recurrent phantom limb pain. “The pain wasn't subtle,” Lin said. “It was like being in the heart of a trauma all of the time. It was all consuming, but coming from a part of the body that literally no longer existed. I was desperate. I felt like I was gasping for air in a pool, looking for relief.” During recovery, Lin discovered the work of V.S. Ramachandran, a professor of psychology and neurosciences at UCSD, who had pioneered development of a therapy for treating phantom limb pain. The treatment involves using mirrors

March 3, 2021 Planning Commission meeting: You can participate in the Planning Commission meeting by e-mailing your comments to the Planning Division at email@example.com prior to commencement of the agenda item. Your comments will be transmitted to the Planning Commission.

GPA 2019-0003 (PUB 2019-0009) – HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE 2021-2029
PUBLISH DATE: Feb. 19, 2021 DESCRIPTION: Request for a recommendation of approval of a General Plan Amendment to revise the city’s General Plan Housing Element and a recommendation of approval of an addendum to certified Environmental Impact Report EIR 13-02. The Housing Element Update provides the city with a housing plan or strategy for promoting the production of safe, decent and affordable housing for varying income-levels, including policies and programs on how it will accommodate its share of residential growth estimates. Approval of the Housing Element Update will not result in any development or changes to land uses or city codes. Any such changes or development will need separate and subsequent actions. The proposed action to approve an addendum is based on findings that (1) the General Plan EIR is of continuing informational value, and (2) the city has prepared an addendum to the previously certified EIR because only minor changes or additions are necessary and none of the conditions described in CEQA Guidelines Section 15162 calling for preparation of subsequent or supplemental environmental review has occurred. If you challenge this project in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearings described in this notice or in written correspondence delivered to the City of Carlsbad at or prior to the public hearings. Copies of the staff reports will be available online on or after the Thursday prior to the hearing date as follows: • Planning Commission staff report: http://www.carlsbadca.gov/cityhall/clerk/meetings/boards/planning.asp. • Housing Commission staff report: http://www.carlsbadca.gov/cityhall/clerk/meetings/boards/housing.asp. If you have any questions, or would like to be notified of the decision for either meeting, please contact Scott Donnell in the Planning Division at 760-602-4618 or email@example.com, Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 1635 Faraday Avenue, Carlsbad, California 92008.

Pandemic has Laver watching his beloved Australian Open from afar
od Laver is watching the Australian Open, which isn’t news. That he’s doing so in his longtime Carlsbad home is. “The tennis has been pretty good,” Laver said. “But this COVID-19 has been tough on the tournament.”
Today’s upside-down world has Laver in North County instead of Down Under for the sport’s first major, which ends on Sunday. Laver, 82, skipped the 15-hour trek to Melbourne because of the pandemic. That has the “Rocket” cooling his jets and eyeing the action on TV, where he roots for Spain’s Rafael Nadal and Australia’s Ashleigh Barty. For Laver it’s the reunion with his colleagues and him participating in the festivities, as much as the tennis, that has him longing for his homeland. The
Australian Open possesses a sunny vibe and is known as the “Happy Slam,” held during the summer and drawing spirited fans of all ages.
The event’s biggest booster is Laver, a player for the ages as the only competitor to win two Grand Slams. As an amateur in 1962 and as a pro in 1969, Laver won the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open. Do that, and they put your name in lights. That’s certainly true of this mate as the Australian Open’s signature venue at its sprawling complex is the Rod Laver Arena. Of Laver’s countless triumphs and trophies, having Melbourne’s grandest indoor arena carrying his

letters eclipses them all. Tennis is just part of the schedule, which includes everything from concerts to rodeos and draws some 1.5 million customers annually. “It’s amazing to have my name on the stadium,” said Laver, who won the Australian Open three times. “I’m honored that Australia did that for me because there could have been a lot of different names on it. I was extremely happy that they picked me.” That gesture in 2000 also gave Laver a lift after what he called a “rough patch.” Laver, always a battler with 200 titles to his credit, had just emerged from the toughest fight. Two years earlier Laver suffered an aneurysm during an interview at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA. Laver was rushed across campus to the UCLA Medical Center and received immediate care. That possibly saved his life. Laver rebounded, but it was a challenge. Now it’s difficult finding a day in which Laver, an International Tennis Hall of Fame member, isn’t doing something athletic. There’s golf and his twice-a-week workouts at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa. “Rod is determined to stay fit and his perseverance is very admirable,” said Carlsbad’s Emily Hilgemann, Laver’s trainer for 11 years. “He shows up early to warm up and stretch so every session he is at his best. Not very many people like to be pushed like he does.” The Aussies felt a tug at their heartstrings when christening the 15,000-seat Rod Laver Arena.
Laver was not only the world’s top-ranked player from 1964 to 70, but the Queensland native led Australia to five Davis Cup titles. “He represents what a true Aussie is, and he is such a humble person,” said Nelson Flores, a Melbourne resident who attends the Australian Open. “It’s just not the same without him here.” Laver’s seat isn’t the only one vacant. Melbourne underwent a recent fiveday lockdown because of COVID-19, which had players performing minus the thunderous roars from patrons that accompany the splendid shot-making. “I’m sure it’s different for the players,” Laver said. “Your concentration level is higher with fans because you don’t want to embarrass yourself by playing badly. You want to prove that you are a good tennis player, and the crowd will tell you if you are.” He’s among the local masses anticipating the San Diego Padres season, and just maybe it’s because they both traffic in grand slams. Laver, a former San Diego Chargers season-ticket holder, counts Padres owner Peter Seidler as a friend. No foe of hard work, Laver is off to lift weights with Hilgemann at La Costa. If he’s feeling nostalgic for something bearing his name, he’s also in the right spot. Close to where Hilgemann puts him through the paces is the resort's tennis shop, where there’s a plaque honoring Rod Laver.

Other changes to the health and safety protocols include mandatory face coverings in club facilities and in the dugout. MLB made what it calls “significant changes to the contact tracing process” to reflect changes in guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and medical experts, and experiences from last season and experiences of other leagues over the past year. Kinexon contact tracing devices must be worn at all times while in club facilities, during club-directed travel and while engaged in team activities including group workouts and practices.

SECTION Sen. Bates proposal honors Cal Fire ‘hero’ By City News Service
CARLSBAD — State Sen. Patricia Bates, R-Laguna Niguel, announced last week she has introduced a resolution to name a section of state Route 15 near the North County community of Rainbow after local firefighting legend William R. Clayton. Senate Concurrent Resolution 12 would rename a portion of state Route 15 as the “CAL FIRE Chief William R. Clayton Memorial Highway,” honoring the former Carlsbad resident who was twice awarded the Cal Fire Medal of Valor and was the most decorated chief in the agenc y ’s h istor y, a c c o rd i n g to a statement from Bates’ office. Clayton died at his CarlsCLAYTON bad home of natural causes three years ago at the age of 77. “Chief Clayton was a real-life action hero who saved hundreds of lives and entire towns from the ravages of fire,” said state Sen. Bates. “While no words can ever truly express the gratitude that we have for Chief Clayton, I hope the highway naming in his honor will further remind people of his commitment to public service.” Clayton’s 50-year firefighting career began with the U.S. Forest Service at the Cleveland National Forest. He also served as a fire captain for the Orange County Fire Department, Assistant Chief at the Rainbow Conservation Camp for Cal Fire, Division Chief for Cal TURN TO FIRE CHIEF ON B6

Local quiltmaker sews free masks By Jordan P. Ingram
ENCINITAS — If you’re looking for a free hand-sewn face mask from a prize-winning quilter, look no further than Hickoryhill Drive in Encinitas. The stylish cloth masks are offered to the public courtesy of Rinda VanLennep, 81, who has kept busy at her sewing machine since shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began. VanLennep told The Coast News she first started making masks after her sewing group, American Sewing Guild, requested face-coverings for healthcare workers in need of personal protective equipment last April. As immediate demand tapered off, VanLeppen realized she had grown to enjoy her time sewing and continued to produce

masks, offering them free of charge in a basket that hangs from her front-yard fencepost. Since then, VanLennep has stitched 1,000 masks, many of which feature a col-
orful assemblage of quilting scraps she’s collected over the years. “I don’t even see who’s taking them, lots of times a car will just drive by and pick one up,” VanLennep
said. In response to demand, VanLennep has recruited a neighbor, Marcia Frango, to help with non-sewing duties, such as folding and packaging. The duo averages about five masks per day. In return, the longtime Encinitas resident has received a basketful of thank you cards, flowers and notes from neighbors expressing their appreciation for her handmade gifts. “I never believed I would still be here still doing this so many months later,” VanLennep said. “Until they stop picking them up, I guess I’ll keep making them.” Regarding coronavirus prevention, VanLeppen said she has already received her first vaccination shot and is scheduled to get her second dose this week.
ooh, little, fluffy puppies. Is there anything cuter? There is not, if you can pet them and leave, or just watch them, or even adopt one and take it home. But I have been given a fearful look into the abyss that is caring for a litter of puppies and their reluctant mom. It’s a scary, if cuddly, place to be. My daughter, who dwells with us, got a call from a local shelter asking if she could foster a mother and eight puppies for two weeks. My daughter has the softest heart in the world, and said yes, before discussing it with the rest of the household. The rest of the household was not entirely thrilled. It has been hilarious watching this poor, grateful mother dog gleefully hand over the babysitting chore. The pups are about five weeks now and are almost weaned. Mom is clearly done. The eight little niblets, not so much. Mom just walks away when she’s had enough, but much shrieking and whining follows. The real challenge, however, is the cleanup. As expected, puppies have no control over anything. Times that by eight, it’s a constantly moving cloud of puppyness. There is no directing it. You can’t get to the cleanup site fast enough to prevent at least four of them from walking and/or TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B5

Shake things up by visiting Blue Sky Ecological Reserve
y husband and I arrived at the fork in the road and didn’t know which way to go. The choices didn’t seem to match up with the map we had photographed at the trailhead, and we also hadn’t counted on the route heading straight up. We decided to turn around to search for what we thought was the right turn we had missed. This was our first foray into the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve (http://blueskyreserve.org) in Poway, 700 acres that encompasses four different habitats: chaparral, coastal/inland sage scrub, oak woodland and riparian. I guess we can blame or credit the pandemic for forcing us to search for new hiking trails beyond our immediate area. We decided that it’s too easy to become too comfortable with the usual trails, and we needed to shake it up a bit, so we headed southeast to Poway. The COVID-19 virus certainly has limited travel and activity for the better part of the last 12 months, but now most of San Diego County’s trails are open and hiking is one activity that we can easily do while maintaining the rules of so-
THE LIVE OAKS on this stretch of trail in the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve in Poway provide a leafy respite from the sun. This 5.5-mile trail leads up to Lake Poway, Lake Poway Park and the dam. Another 5-mile trail in the reserve leads to Lake Ramona. Photo by E’Louise Ondash
cial distancing. Blue Sky offers five hikes of varying lengths, including a short, flat one with signage for kids. We chose the 5.5-mile hike up to Lake Poway, around it and back down. The rather steep climb begins after
a stretch of trail that provides a lovely, leafy interlude that winds through stands of live oak. The trees also create a cool canopy for a spacious picnic area with nearby, well camouflaged restrooms. This verdant
tunnel will be especially welcome in the warmer months, but summer hikes should be done early in the morning. The energy expended on the way up this trail is worth the view from the top, where you’ll find Lake
Poway, Lake Poway Park and a demonstrative look at the dam. It’s hard to believe that this oasis exits (thankfully) amid a metro area of 3.1 million residents. Visitors and hikers also can drive to the park and from there, circumnavigate
the trail around the lake, a 2.75-mile hike. Note: This won’t eliminate the need to cover a section of challenging uphill trail. If you head northwest, in the opposite direction from Poway, you’ll find a different climate zone at Pico Park (https://sanclemente.com/parks/pico-park/) in southern San Clemente. This small park is adjacent to two other mini-parks, all connected by the Sea Summit Trail (https://funora ngecou nt y pa rks.com / sea- su m m it-t ra i l- sta i rs near-san-clemente-outlets. html). Walking these trails that are just below the expansive Outlets at San Clemente shopping center and near a subdivision, makes me thankful that someone had the foresight to save this slice of coastal open space. The trail winds up and down the cliffs just east of Pacific Coast Highway, where hikers can see panoramic views of the ocean and watch cyclists along the well landscaped, dedicated bike lane parallel to PCH. These wide, clean trails, bordered by open fencing protecting restored habitat, and the playgrounds at these parks make this location an ideal destination for families. Hiking the area on a clear February day with the ocean breeze in your face and the sun at your back – well, it doesn’t get much better than that. Have an adventure to share?

Carlsbad author’s memoir recounts years in Hollywood Strange By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Nearly 90 years ago, A Carlsbad resident was born in a city that gives rise to celebrities. Since her early years, Jackie Epstein, 89, fell in love with Hollywood and celebrities and spent a career rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in Tinseltown. But since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down her senior community at Carlsbad-by-the-Sea, Epstein was inspired by another resident to write a book. And she did, recently self-publishing her memoir, “My Love Affair With Hollywood.” Epstein spent several months recalling her experiences as a Hollywood columnist for the L.A. Herald-Examiner and her close-personal relationships with celebrities, such as Linda Gray. “They were just wonderful, wonderful people,” Epstein told The Coast News. “It was an incredible experience.” According to Epstein, celebrities were the best people she's ever met and for years, she wrote a column about their stories and careers. Before her writing career, Epstein’s first taste of stardom came when she was 11 years old at her first movie premiere.
JACKIE EPSTEIN, right, with actress Betty White on the set of the 1980s film, “The Gossip Columnist.” Epstein has published a memoir, “My Love Affair With Hollywood,” chronicling her time as a columnist for the L.A. Herald-Examiner in the ’60s and ’70s. Courtesy photo
Epstein's first job was a business manager's assistant and her responsibilities included a wake-up call every morning to legendary musician Nat King Cole, the first Black person to host his own TV show. Epstein later married her late husband, Robert, and the couple had four children. After becoming overwhelmed with raising four children, Epstein's husband, who worked for the Herald-Examiner, landed her a job at the newspaper
for $5 per week in 1966, she recalled. Epstein said she was thrilled to have direct access to film and television stars she’d grown up watching. While her family lived paycheck-to-paycheck, Epstein said they powered through tough financial times. Epstein and her husband eventually retired to Carlsbad in 1991. After 42 years of marriage and six grandchildren, Robert passed away in 1997. “We almost had no mon-
ey, but we had the magic of Hollywood,” Epstein said. “Being a Hollywood columnist opened up other doors.” After penning her “Hollywood Soundtrack” column for years under the pen name Jackie Manne, Epstein also wrote a “Court of Opinions” column for Tennis Illustrated, meeting and interviewing legends such as Billie Jean King, Chris Evert and Rod Laver. One of her favorite memories is being with Gray on a movie set with chimpanzees in the Flori-
da Everglades for the film, “The Wild and Free.” Gray, who did her own stunts, was fearless, Epstein recalled, and the script called for her to swim across a body of water to the chimps. Gray began swimming across the water when the director noticed several baby alligators circling the actress, Epstein said. Undeterred, Gray kept swimming, got to land and ate “nose-to-nose” with the chimps, Epstein said laughing. Epstein also worked with Betty White and Kim Cattrell on the TV movie “The Gossip Columnist” and conducted Rita Hayworth’s final interview. "My Love Affair with Hollywood" is filled with these types of stories, but it also recounts the love of her family and husband, Epstein said. “I was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years and did my writing, interviewing, and had my own PR company while raising the four kids,” Epstein said. “My husband and I had tremendous energy and didn't require a lot of sleep. I also had wonderful friends who exchanged the young ones with me — and I was the first one in my neighborhood to buy an answering machine — which made all of the above possible.”

Conservation groups intend to sue EPA over air pollution By City News Service
REGION — Two conservation groups on Feb. 11 filed a formal notice of their intent to sue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its alleged failure to ensure San Diego County and other regions across the country rein in harmful air pollution. The Center for Biological Diversity and the Center for Environmental Health say San Diego and Ventura counties are among six regions in the state that have failed to meet basic air-quality standards for ozone. In a letter to EPA Acting Administrator Jane Nishida, they allege the federal agency has failed to meet its duty to ensure that adequate plans are in place to control pollution from the oil and methane gas industry in California — including the San Diego region — as well as five other eastern U.S. states. “There’s clearly bipartisan support to reduce air pollution from the oil and methane gas industry, but
what’s been missing is the political will to get it done,'' said Robert Ukeiley, an attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “We’re calling on the Biden administration to take the common-sense steps that will protect people and wildlife alike from dangerous pollution from the fossil fuel industry,” he said. “Ultimately, the key to safeguarding the air we breathe is to move quickly away from drilling and fracking.” The groups say the areas outlined in their letter are home to more than 48.7 million people, or about 15% of the U.S. population. “As we transition away from fossil fuels, we need to ensure that all of our energy sources are as protective of public health as possible,” said Kaya Sugerman, director of the Center for Environmental Health's illegal toxic threats program. “Polluting industries, not the public, should pay the price for the impacts of extraction.”

Surfing for the love of waves waterspot chris ahrens
aking a distant fourth place behind family, friends and faith is my love of waves. And, like the aforementioned other favorites, I never tire with what they have to offer. I love everything about waves, except their overly zealous attempt to drown me from time to time. I am forever enamored by their sound, especially in the dark when a point wave hits flat water above a bed of river rock like it does at Trestles on those pre-dawn patrols. I love the way a wave smells after breaking and sending all those cute little and wrongly named negative ions into the air. There’s nothing negative about it. I love the feeling of saltwater as it dries and forms salt crystals on my skin. The site of waves from massive Hawaiian slabs to perfect California point breaks, glassy peaks and even disorganized chop is a study in order from chaos. Then, of course, there is the feeling of riding a wave. From the moment you see it shyly reveal its pretty face on the horizon, to the moment it dissolves and gently (if your lucky) places you on the shore, it produces an electronic symphony of good feelings. Once I have spotted a wave, which may have traveled over a thousand miles to meet me, my heart rate increases while I attempt to out maneuver everyone else

in the lineup and lay claim to it. As anyone who has ever surfed can tell you, this is not easy. Regardless of how athletic you are, timing a wave will takes years to fully master. Next comes my favorite part of any ride—dropping in. If you are in just the right position, you can accomplish a no-paddle takeoff, which, as the term implies, means you don’t take any strokes to catch the wave. Hopefully, there is nobody on the shoulder in front of you. If somebody is behind you, you should give way unless they are a wave hog on a massive board trying to snag every wave that come through.

With the coast clear, you are now free to employ gravity and drop in. The best drops are those made on the tiptoes, barely surviving to the bottom where you make your first turn. The bottom turn sets the rest of the ride up and offers options of racing down the line or climbing the face to hit the lip. The best waves offer the shelter of a tube, something that in North County is rare and therefore all the more valuable. Too much speed may facilitate the need for a cutback. After the cutback, the entire process—minus dropping in—begins again. Of course you may end the ride in a wipeout any-
where along the line. If not, a good wave will open up to offer the chance at either a series of turns and cutbacks until the wave suffers a slow, and apparently painless, death. You may also feel the need to kick out before the wave loses energy or closes out. On the final wave of a session, the desire of most is to be gently deposited on shore, where the adventure first began. Next time you ride a wave, try not to consider what you did on it, but what it did for you. You have been miraculously carried along on a band of energy in a magic moment that will never be repeated again.
OCEANSIDE — The North County Transit District will suspend all coastal rail line service between the Oceanside Transit Center and Santa Fe Depot in San Diego during the weekend of Feb. 20 and Feb. 21 as part of a planned schedule of rail closures that support routine maintenance and rail infrastructure work. Weekend COASTER service is currently suspended due to COVID-19 service reductions; however, the February weekend closure will affect Metrolink and Amtrak trains. Service suspension will begin at noon Feb. 20 and remain in place until 5 a.m. Feb. 22, enabling rail service to resume in time for the weekday morning commute. Weekend closures like this one, referred to as Absolute Work Windows, occur periodically during the year on a pre-determined schedule. These “windows” pro-
vide construction crews the opportunity to work safely and unimpeded on and along the rail line to perform improvements and maintenance work. While no passenger or freight trains will operate during this weekend closure, other test trains and construction vehicles and equipment will be active along the railroad right-of-way and on the tracks throughout the weekend. Residents along the corridor should remain alert and the public is reminded to only cross the rail line at lawfully designated rail crossings. During the closure weekend, neither Amtrak Pacific Surfliner nor Metrolink will service the Oceanside Transit Center. Amtrak bus services will require an Amtrak reservation and Rail 2 Rail passes will not be honored. Amtrak customers may visit PacificSurfliner.com or call (800) 872-7245 for the latest information.

ENCINITAS — Initial construction is underway to kick off the project to preserve and revitalize North Coast Highway 101 in Leucadia. The multiphase project known as Leucadia Streetscape be-gins with Phase 1 roadway improvements between Marcheta and Basil Streets, drainage work between El Portal and A Streets, and parking pod construction on the east side of the 101 between Marcheta and Avocado Streets. Construction of Phase I is currently scheduled to conclude in mid-2022 with additional phases to be scheduled as funding allows. By enhancing the area’s existing ambiance, improving neighborhood flow, enhancing frontage of surrounding businesses and integrating with the El Por-tal Undercossing project, Leucadia Streetscape intends to improve accessibility and mobility for all
modes of transportation and reinvigorate the thoroughfare. “We are so excited to reach this important milestone for the Leucadia Streetscape project and move it forward into construction,” Mayor Catherine Blakespear said. “This is a big moment for our community, as it comes after nearly a decade of work by city staff and engagement with the community to create a plan that makes it easier and safer for community members to get to the beach and enjoy the shops and res-taurants on North Coast Highway 101, whether in a car, on a bike or on foot.” Phase I project components include: * Roundabout on North Coast Highway 101 at El Portal Street * Reduction of traffic lanes on Coast Highway 101 from four total lanes to two lanes * Connection to the El Portal Undercrossing for pedestrians and cyclists
* New buffered bike lanes and wider sidewalks * Street lighting * Spaces to sit and gather * New and improved crosswalks * New parking on the east side of North Coast Highway 101 * Nearly 100 new trees planted * Enhanced native and drought tolerant landscaping * New stormwater treatment through biofiltration and dispersion * Enhanced NCTD bus stops on North Coast Highway 101 Construction of Phase I is currently scheduled to conclude in mid 2022 with additional phases to be scheduled as funding allows. “We are thrilled to begin work on the first phase of our Leucadia Streetscape pro-ject”because of the positive impact it will have on the community when completed,” said Encinitas Principal Engineer
Jill Bankston. “It was designed to add to Leucadia's undeniable charm and char-acter and provide our residents with the ability to easily travel throughout their neighborhood whether on a bike, on foot or in a car.” Funding for the $7.7 million Phase I Leucadia Streetscape project has been provided by the city's General Fund and SANDAG’s TransNet funds, which is the region’s half cent sales tax for local transportation projects. The project is being constructed in phases based on current available project funding. A major component of the project includes bolstering the urban tree canopy that is a quin-tessential aspect of Leucadia. During design, the project team worked around the existing trees as much as possible, but some trees must be removed but the City will plant almost 100 new trees as part of Phase 1 construction.

SOLANA BEACH — As businesses begin to reopen, there is one area that will take longer to return to normalcy — rehabbing veterans at the Veterans Affairs hospitals, especially those patients in the Spinal Cord Units. But Solana Beach artist Joel Harris found he could not sit idly by and do nothing. Instead, he chose to use his artistic talent to draw pictures as gifts for the heroes in rehab. Each week, he meets with a member of the VA staff who then distributes these hand drawn pictures to spinal cord patients. Art therapy is not something new for Harris.

Gorillas back in action after COVID-19 bout By City News Service
ESCONDIDO — San Diego Zoo Safari Park visitors can once again see the eight gorillas who live there, now that they have fully recovered from a bout with COVID-19, officials said. Visits to the exhibit were restricted for more than a month after three of the Safari Park's gorillas tested positive in January for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID. The exhibit has fully reopened, the zoo announced Saturday. “We’re so grateful for
the outpouring concern and support we’ve received while the troop safely recovered,” said Lisa Peterson, executive director of the park, 10News reported Monday. “We’re thrilled to share the joy that this beloved troop brings to our community and to our guests.” Officials believe the apes contracted the virus from a zoo worker who carried it but was asymptomatic. It is believed to be the first case of transmission of the disease from a human to an ape. Zoologists at San Diego
Zoo Global treated the gorillas with help from professionals with the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, UC San Diego Health, Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego, Scripps Research Institute and multiple state, federal and Illinois and Georgia-based zoological organizations. Treatments for the oldest gorilla, named Winston, included an experimental monoclonal antibody therapy, from a supply that could not be used on people. Winston, whose symptoms included a cough and
lethargy, was examined under anesthesia due to his advanced age, and veterinarians confirmed he had pneumonia and heart disease. All visitors to the zoo and to the safari park must make reservations online in advance for each person in their party. The work of San Diego Zoo Global includes on-site wildlife conservation efforts at the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, as well as international field programs on six continents.

bat Training, a month-long training school following boot camp. Gender integration at boot camp, Zantt said, will require men and women to work together as a team earlier in their careers. “It’s paving the way because this is really important to the Marine Corps, to show the integration,” Zantt said. “We are all in the trenches together, it’s now starting ahead of time, as soon as they stood on the yellow footprints.” Eighteen-year-old Lezly Zavaleta arrived in San Diego from Tyler, Texas. She was an honor roll student in high school, not much of an athlete. She enlisted because she was tired of hearing other people tell her she couldn’t hack it. “I was always clumsy, fragile. I just wanted to prove them wrong and prove to myself I could do it, even though people didn’t believe in me,” she said. “When I learned I was going to San Diego, I thought it was finally a chance for females to prove that they can do it too, not just at Paris Island, but here on the west coast.” Zavaleta was one of 60 women that arrived at the depot last week. They will spend the next 13 weeks living, training and working together alongside the men. If they have what it takes, they will be awarded the title of United States Marine. “The women here with me are going to push themselves more than they’ve pushed themselves before, and that’s what I’m looking forward to, looking at the guys and saying “I can do that too,”,” Zavaleta said. “It’s a really big accomplishment… some people believe women can’t do it, and I’m here to prove them wrong. Women can do it.”

REGION — Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego welcomed the first wave of women recruits in the base’s history on Feb. 9. They will train alongside the men as the Marine Corps continues to march towards basic training gender integration. Until last week, all women recruits attended boot camp in South Carolina aboard Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. But in December 2019, Congress ordered the Marine Corps to fully integrate both recruit depots–– Parris Island by 2025 and San Diego by 2028––at the platoon level. The women that arrived in San Diego will make up one of six platoons in Lima Company, Marine Corps drill instructor Staff Sgt. Ayesha Zantt said. She recently transferred from the east coast to help welcome the women recruits in San Diego, but she will not assume the drill instructor roll with this wave of recruits. Zantt has been a Marine for eight years, and like every other woman before her, she went to boot camp at Parris Island. “It’s challenging all around, they break you down, build you back up and it makes you a better person,” Zantt explained. “It’s meant to shed them away from their civilian life, their civilian routine and to make them into basically trained Marines.” Men and women work alongside one another throughout the Marine Corps. But until recently, the two rarely saw each other at boot camp. Basic training was segregated and then men and women would come together for Marine Com-

Sheriff’s Deputy beaten by two inmates inside Vista jail By City News Service
VISTA — A San Diego sheriff's deputy was badly beaten by two inmates inside the Vista Jail. The attack happened about 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Vista Detention Center, at 325 S. Melrose Dr., according to San Diego sheriff's Lt. Ricardo Lopez. According to Lopez, Deputy Michael Cascioppo was escorting a nurse who was distributing medication inside one of the housing modules. Because of the pandemic, inmates remain locked inside their cells while medication is distributed. While Cascioppo was escorting the nurse, an inmate asked the deputy if he could pass a food tray to the inmates in the next cell, Lopez said. When Cascioppo opened the cell, the
two inmates inside rushed out and started beating him. Cascioppo was punched and kicked multiple times, then the inmates pulled him into their cell and beat him further, Lopez said. Responding deputies finally subdued the inmates and placed them underarrest, Lopez said. Cascioppo was able to walk out on his own power, and was then transported to a hospital for treatment. He was released later that evening. Detectives with the sheriff's Detentions Investigation unit were handling the investigation, Lopez said. The names of the two inmates were not immediately released, and the motive for the attack was unknown.

It's time to work with our community to re-imagine and change county government through the lens of equity and justice in all we do. “I’m excited to have an opportunity to dedicate my time and energy to build greater trust with the community and work with them to create enduring systemic change,

root out systemic racism and create equity in all we do,” he said. The office was established by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors in June. More than 20 community groups were invited to participate in the director’s selection process, and 12 ultimately chose to be involved, including representatives from the API Initiative, Community Advocates for Just and Moral Governance and Universidad Popular. Strong spent nine years in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman before settling in San Diego. He joined the county in the human resources department and was promoted into key leadership positions, including chief of staff of the Chief Administrative Office, which implements the policy directives of the board and manages the day-to-day operations of the county. The county will also soon begin recruiting for two additional positions to support the office.

According to Simon Babaev, spokesman for the New York-based jeweler Eliantte & Co. that implanted the stone, Uzi fell in love with the marquise-shaped diamond when he saw it in 2017 and has been making payments on it as he determined what he wanted to do with it. “We didn’t think he was serious about it,” said Babaev, but as it became clear that he was, “we engineered a specific mounting that clips and locks in place. There’s a whole mechanism involved.” [Rolling Stone, 2/8/2021]

Ballast Point, UCSD partner to cultivate diversity
t’s long been a stereotype that a typical craftbeer drinker looks a lot like me — white, male, and bearded. But spend any time at a local brew festival (pre-pandemic), and you’ll know that is an in-accurate representation of San Diego's beer scene as a whole. While there are plenty of enthusiasts who match my physical description, a love of craft beer isn’t restricted by race, gender or sexuality. Yet often, the stereotype does apply when it comes to working in the brewing industry. The most widely cited statistic is from the Brewer’s Association Industry Report 2019, which states that just over 76% of brewery workers are Caucasian. This percentage is even higher among brewers them-selves at 89%. However, concerted efforts to expand the diversity within the industry are being implemented to begin leveling the playing field right here in San Diego County. Ballast Point Brewing,

in partnership with the University of California-San Diego (UCSD), is launching its annual Brewing for Diversity Scholarship to "grant underrepresented students with the funds and tools they need to participate successfully in UCSD
Extension’s Brewing Certificate Program." The scholarship includes full tuition funding and an internship at Ballast Point Brewing. Recipients are selected by representatives from Ballast Point, UCSD and San Diego Brew-
ers Guild Inclusion Committee. The Michael James Jackson Foundation (TMJJF) is another grant-making organization working to create opportunity with a local connection.
Timothy Parker, founder and owner (with wife Dali Parker) of Chula Vista Brewing, is a member of the TMJJF board. The organization funds schol-arship awards to Black, Indigenous, and persons of color within the brewing and distilling trades looking to begin or continue their industry education. Recently, Chula Vista Brewing teamed up with Coronado Brewing to release a craft lager, “Untit-led II,” with a portion of its proceeds going to help fund the TMJJF scholarship efforts, as first reported in SanDiegoBeer.news. Nationwide, the brewing industry’s failures of inclusivity are being pointed out more often. Drinkers, brewers and brewery employees have begun to speak up when they see both injustices and opportunities. Those indie beer voices are inspiring more efforts within the industry even at the largest brewing companies. Tenth & Blake, the craft arm of MolsonCoors, launched a new scholarship program for underrepresented students in Tennessee, Oregon and Colorado. Constellation Brands (Corona and Modelo) has pledged $100,000,000 over ten years to increase the diversity in the brewing industry.
Anheuser-Busch has partnered with the United Negro College Fund to create the Natalie Johnson Scholarship, offering 25 annual scholarships and five paid internships to advance careers in brew-ing for Black college students. Natalie Johnson is the first Black female brewmaster at Anheuser-Busch’s St. Louis brewery. These are all great efforts, but more is needed. The word “annual” in the Ballast Point scholarship language stood out to me. Providing opportunities over the long term is an important component to creating a more diverse industry. It’s important for industry leaders to continue expanding these efforts and to respond to bright lights exposing the industry’s flaws. The SD Brewer’s Guild Inclusion webpage header reads, “Diversity + Inclusion + Belonging,” but its resources and toolkits are still “Coming Soon.” That will change, and we’ll be a better com-munity for it. Find details on how to apply for or provide support for the Ballast Point Brewing for Diversity scholarship at www.ballastpoint. com /brewingfordiversity and The Michael James Jackson Foun-dation at www.themjf.org/.
30 years and out: A career in restaurants comes to an end
lease indulge me as I provide a brief backstory on this week’s column. I grew up next door to Jim Klemmer in Royal Oak, Michigan, where we both developed an early interest in surfing
— an odd place for that to happen. That led us both to Encinitas and enabled our friendship to continue, riding the waves we only dreamed about in Michigan. Jim landed in Encinitas before I did and ended up living in one of the iconic boathouses on Third Street. My first visits had me sleeping on the floor of the sparsely furnished SS Encinitas but realizing that this was where I needed to be. By that time Jim was managing Leucadia Pizzeria on the corner of Encinitas Boulevard and Coast Highway 101. His idyllic world (to me anyway) consisted of living in the boat-
lick the plate david boylan house community with other restaurant pirate types, Leucadia Pizzeria, The Saloon and surfing The Boneyard. As a young corporate type, I envied the simplicity of his life. One of the highlights was when our idol, the late surf writer Gary Taylor from The Coast News interviewed me for a story on Great Lakes surfing over pizza and beers

served up by Jim. When our story came out, we had been validated as freshwater surfers by the local king, we had arrived. Over the past 30 years or so, it’s always been difficult for us to get our schedules to sync up. Jim’s life has revolved around restaurant hours, the past 19 as owner-operator of Palomar Pizza & Pasta in Vista. That all changed recently, and I thought it worthy of letting Jim tell his story. LTP: Tell me about your first restaurant gig. Jim: My first restaurant job was at a Pizza Hut at 16. My sister was a waitress there and got me in. I was pretty green with zero work experience. The most memorable restaurant job I had in high school was at a sub shop in Royal Oak called Tubby’s Submarines. It was the first job I had that was actually fun. LTP: Where was your first restaurant job in Encinitas? Jim: That would be the old Kansas City BBQ. It was hard work but with a very simple menu. Just ribs, chicken and a few side dishes. LTP: What was it like working then managing Leucadia Pizzeria? Jim: That’s where I really learned the basic operations of a very busy, very successful restaurant. I

started as a cook, and after a freak accident, I was promoted to manager. It was a great place to work but the place was a pressure cooker. We had 20 drivers on a Friday night and that alone was extremely stressful, kind of like air traffic control. In addition to the delivery chaos, we would normally have a jammedpacked dining room. So, I had to not only deal with the kitchen and delivery driver madness, I had to manage the front of the house as well. Dealing
with angry customers, feuding waitresses, stoned surfer dude busboys and crying hostesses. But overall, the experience at Leucadia Pizza was great, and the owners, Chip and Linda Conover, were a great family to work for. No regrets. LTP: Was there a point when you realized this was your career path? Jim: It was not until I was well committed to opening my own shop in TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON B12

n 1972, while shooting photographs for the publication “Treasury of American Wines,” Jack and Dolores Cakebread casually offered to buy the Sturdivant ranch in Rutherford Napa Valley. When they returned to their hotel they found the answer to their proposition. The answer was YES! In 1975, the Cakebreads crushed some cabernet sauvignon up at a friend’s place, the Keenan winery, and by 1976 their first cab was released, a 1974 vintage. Next year will be the 50th anniversary of Cakebread Cellars, now one of the most respected in the wine community of Napa Valley, with the classic cabernet sauvignon right up there with the best of them. Setting the table for their golden year of cab is the 2018 entry ($70), a classic red revealing aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry with hints of dark chocolate and sweet oak.

LICK THE PLATE CONTINUED FROM B8
2001, that I realized that this would be my life’s work. Before I had time to really think about what I was doing, I was already in deep. No going back. Most of my jobs up to that point were in restaurants, and I always told myself with each new restaurant gig, that this would be my last one. So what do I do? I open up Palomar Pizza. Go figure. LTP: Tell me about the location and concept for Palomar Pizza? Jim: We chose the location of Palomar Pizza because of its proximity to business parks in southern Vista as well as the businesses around Palomar Airport as we really wanted to focus on the lunchtime catering/delivery business. It was also near the brandnew housing of Carlsbad, Rancho Carrillo area as well as San Elijo Hills in San Marcos. As far as the menu, I basically took what I learned at Leucadia Pizzeria, and added my own touch to it, focusing on a good quality pizza as well as a variety of pasta entrees and salads and a few baked subs, including the iconic Pizza Sub that you introduced me to from Peppino’s Pizza in Allendale, Michigan. We really scored with our lasagna and the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. LTP: Describe the last
20 years there. Jim: The first seven years were amazing. We established ourselves in the community as a family-owned, neighborhood pizza shop. But in late 2008, the bottom fell out. Melrose Road was finally completed, so we were then bypassed by a lot of traffic, and several new pizza places opened up in our area. It was the first time we had serious competition. Then came the great recession. All of these things nearly put us out of business. But we survived it with a little creativity and some long hours. It really was a low point for us that lasted several years. We survived the recession, and slowly regained our lost business. Today's sales will pay for tomorrow's payroll and bills. A busy stretch can keep your head above water, but a long slow one can kill you. I knew we wouldn’t survive, so around March of last year, I started to develop my exit plan and begin a new life. We closed for good on December 31, 2020. Good riddance to an awful year! LTP: What’s next and how does it feel not being in the business? Jim: Life after Palomar Pizza is definitely different. I am back in school earning my teaching credential through CSUSM and in the meantime, I got a new job at one of my former big catering clients, N.A.I. in Vista.
TASTE OF WINE CONTINUED FROM B9
a “Wine of the Week,” at a deep discount, or “buy 6 and get 40% off each bottle,” sale. But the best values are the everyday low prices from the wineries or wine shops at prices that can’t be beat. Look for the go-to top values listed below and you’ll see what I mean. Artesa Pinot Noir, Los Carneros Napa, 2017: Refined flavors of cherry, red currant and plum tart, surrounded by ample toasty notes. $25. Castello Di Arbola, Chianti Classico It., 2016: Ripe cherry and strawberry flavors that are in harmony with tobacco and iron notes. $17. L’ecole #41 Columbia Valley, Wash., Merlot, 2018: Supple and vibrant, offering expressive red currant, violet and spiced cinnamon flavors, with polished tannins $22. Ferrari Carano Sonoma Siena, Red Blend, 2016: From the rich soil of the Geyserville district comes this Italian style blend of Sangiovese Malbec and Petite Sirah. Salute! $14. South Coast Winery, Temecula Valley, Calif., Chardonnay Sans Chene, 2018: A Chardonnay “Sans Chene” (without oak) that simplifies the wine’s flavor so that the grape expresses itself, brimming with tropical fruit aromas, luscious flavors and a crisp finish. $18.

• Skip Coomber reminded me that his Coomber Craft Wines on Mission in Oceanside has live pop and country music 7 nights a week starting at 6 p.m. His “back yard” stage is state of the art with lots of outdoor seating and heating, with super quick wine and food orders. Details at coomber.com or call 760231-8022. • Here’s a reported restaurant change to check out later in the year. A longtime favorite of mine with fabulous ocean views is saying its goodbyes. Chart House, part of the Landry
chain of luxury restaurants, will be spiffed up to become Mastro’s Ocean Club at Restaurant Row along the Coast Highway in Cardiff. Chart House goes back to the ’50s and was a casual surf and turf restaurant where surfers hung out with the money crowd. Details like architectural upgrades, alcohol service times, dress code and entertainment are still being worked out according to press sources.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Time is on your side in the early part of the week. But anything left undone by midweek will need to be put into rush mode. The weekend offers choices for you and someone special. TAURUS (April 30 to May 20) Finally getting credit for a contribution is nice for all you idea-generating Ferdinands and Fernandas. But don’t sit on your laurels under the cork tree. Use it as a first step to a bigger opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Despite the progress made, a hint of doubt might set in. That’s OK. You need to stop and consider not only what you’re doing but also how you are doing. Make adjustments where needed. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The dreamer is dominant in the Moon Child’s aspect, but a dollop of hardheaded practicality is coming up fast and jockeying for space. The challenge is to make room for both modes. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s a good week for Leos and Leonas to start assessing what they’ve done and what they plan to do. Moving to a new environment — home or job-related — is a possibility for some Cats. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The week calls for Virgos to make tough decisions, but in a way that leaves the door open for changes. Ask for advice from someone who has been in the position you’re in now.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Disappointments are never easy to take, but you have the ability to learn from them and go on to success. Meanwhile, continue to build up your contacts. You’ll need them soon. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Things might still be going much too slowly to suit you. But you need the time to make sure they’re going in the right direction. It’s easier to make a course correction now rather than later. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Showing some temperament at the way things are going is one way of getting your point across. Just don’t overdo it, or you risk turning away more-moderate supporters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Things could change more quickly this week than you like. But don’t fret; you’ll most likely find that you’re up to the challenges. The weekend offers much-needed relaxation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Big challenge coming up? Uncross those fingers and believe that you’re going to do well. And keep in mind that so many people have faith in your ability to succeed. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Testing the waters is a good way of learning about an opportunity before plunging right in. Ask more questions and be alert to any attempts to avoid giving complete answers.
