Encinitas approves Fox Point Farms ‘agrihood’ By Dustin Jones
ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council unanimously approved the Fox Point Farms housing project during last Wednesday’s meeting. The council denied an appeal filed by Encinitas Community Trust that claimed the development would have significant environmental impacts. Fox Point Farms is a new housing development that will go up on a 21-acre property at the intersection of Leucadia Boulevard and Quail Gardens Drive. The property has historically been used as ag-
ricultural property, but it’s slated to become Encinitas’ first “agrihood.” The project will include 5.5-acres of farmland adjacent to 250 residential units; 40 designated for very-low-income residents. There will also be a farm stand, a restaurant and an event venue on the property. Councilmember Kellie Hinze said the development is what the city needs, providing homes for the “missing middle” — residents that are professionals with dual-income TURN TO FOX POINT ON A9

Carlsbad officials to explore options for Ponto Park By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The quest for a new coastal park in southwestern Carlsbad is moving forward after the Carlsbad City Council approved bringing back “viable options” during its Jan. 26 meeting. For the past seven years, residents in the San Pacifico development led by Lance Schulte and Jodi Jones, among many others, have lobbied the city to develop the 11-acre site as a coastal park and light commercial. The group, known as People for Ponto, has researched the land use, designations and possibilities for the city to create Ponto Park south of the Cape Rey Hotel and across from the state campgrounds. The property, which sits west of Coast Highway and north of Avenida Encinas, is bisected by Ponto Drive. The larger lot is about 7.5 acres. “I’m trying to find out what the right thing is for our community and for our city, so I’d like to continue the conversation,” said Councilwoman Teresa Acosta, who voiced the motion to bring the issue back to council. “I want to explore what the options are and don’t want to limit it too much.”
There are several challenges for the city to overcome if it were to move forward with an attempted purchase of the land in question. First, the land is already owned by Hudson Advisors, Inc., while an unofficial estimate puts the price at least $15 million. According to Jeff Murphy, Carlsbad’s community development director, there is no funding mechanism in

place to purchase the property, assuming the property owner would sell. In 2016, the developer submitted an application to develop the land, although there are no active permits, Murphy said. Schulte and Jones said the city has the funds to purchase the property, noting the council also approved a $21 million renovation to the Monroe Street pool during the same meeting. Regardless, if the city buys the land, it will forego park-in-lieu fees, property and sales taxes. Also, staff reported to the council about Proposition C, which mandates any city project over $1 million (with four exceptions), go to the voters. One of the caveats under Prop. C is for the purchase of open space and trail connectivity, although city staff does not believe
Man arrested in fatal shooting of Cathedral Catholic teacher By City News Service
CARMEL VALLEY — A 30-year-old San Diego man was behind bars Feb. 2 on suspicion of fatally shooting a Cathedral Catholic High School teacher on a North Park roadside, police reported. Jesse Milton Alvarez was arrested without incident Monday night at a Serra Mesa home and was booked into the San Diego Central Jail on susFIERRO picion of murder, San Diego police Lt. Andra Brown said. Patrol officers responding to reports of gunfire shortly after 7 a.m. Monday found 37-year-old Mario Fierro mortally wounded on a sidewalk in the 4500 block of Kansas Street. The victim died at the scene. Authorities have not disclosed a suspected motive for the slaying or the
relationship, if any, between Alvarez and Fierro. Brown said Monday that Fierro was shot after getting into some kind of dispute with his assailant, who drove off to the north in a small older-model vehicle following the gunfire. Alvarez is being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Feb. 19, according to jail records. Fierro was a 2002 graduate of the Carmel Valley secondary school where he went on to teach social science, starting in 2016, and also served as a football coach. “Everyone in our school community mourns his loss,” Diocese of San Diego spokesman Kevin Eckery said Monday. “Mario was young, vibrant and full of life. All of us loved him.” Late Monday afternoon, the Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation announced the creation of a memorial fund to benefit Fierro's family.

State vows to end vaccine discrimination, but can it?
E Vista, San Marcos should expand smoke-free policies
By Paulene L. DeMesa
midst the COVID-19 pandemic, California continued to be a leader fighting the tobacco industry and protecting the youth from tobacco products in 2020. However, some cities in the San Diego region performed better than others regarding smoke-free outdoor air. The findings of the American Lung Association’s State of Tobacco Control 2021 report shows that Vista and San Marcos have the lowest grades among North Inland cities compared to Escondido, who moved closer to the top of the class from a D grade to a B. The drastic improvement came from the City of Escondido’s approval to prohibit smoking and vaping in outdoor dining areas and public places including sidewalks and events. That decision made history by making Escondido the first North Inland city in San Diego County to approve this type of comprehensive smoke-free policy. The American Lung Association’s high grade also
makes Escondido the most improved San Diego County city in smoke-free outdoor air. “E-cigarettes and tobacco products and secondhand exposure pose a severe threat to children, adolescents, and families,” said Mike Strong, Director of Community Development Department of the City of Escondido. “It had been spiraling out of control in Escondido and putting kids in danger of addiction and serious health problems. “The Escondido City Council recognized this problem and wanted to do something about it. Because of their leadership, new smoke-free policies, tobacco retail licensing requirements, and display and sale restrictions establish a pathway to help end the youth smoking epidemic. I hope that Escondido can serve as an example to other cities to score similar health victories.” Now is the ideal time for other cities, like San Marcos and Vista, to adopt the same policy as Escondido. “The global COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of lung
health and breathing clean, fresh air,” says Jennifer Gill, Program Manager at Vista Community Clinic and resident of San Marcos. “Escondido has made great strides in restricting smoking and vaping in outdoor areas. “While San Marcos and Vista have some smoke-free outdoor air policies, there are additional areas, such as outdoor dining areas, where people are still left vulnerable to the health impacts of secondhand smoke. Implementing smoke-free outdoor dining policies will close these gaps.” In 2019, Vista Community Clinic conducted a survey among residents and frequent visitors of San Marcos and found that 91% prefer an area where smoking is not allowed when eating outside. There are 120 cities in California that restrict smoking in outdoor dining areas, 13 of which are in San Diego County, including the communities of Escondido and the unincorporated areas of San Diego County. Paulene DeMesa is a communications specialist at Vista Community Clinic.
Good news despite vaccine frustrations
By Jim Desmond
he rollout for the COVID-19 vaccine has been frustrating, not just in San Diego County, but across the State of California. While there is some good news, with the opening of the Super Station at Cal State San Marcos, there is a growing disappointment with the way the vaccine is being allocated and I completely understand. The County of San Diego has created the infrastructure to be able to administer the vaccines, the challenge is, there are simply not enough doses. The good news is, as soon as we receive more, we
will be able to act quickly and get people inoculated. More good news, the County of San Diego has partnered with fire agencies around the County to allocate vaccines in the unincorporated areas. Valley Center, Fallbrook and other areas soon will have vaccinations coming their communities. This past week, I was to tour the Super Station in San Marcos as well as the Borrego Springs site and was amazed at the efficiency I want to thank all of the healthcare workers, our firefighters and every who has jumped in during this time of need. We appreciate your
amazing work. I’m going to continue to push for the State and Federal government to give us more doses and I believe strongly that the most vulnerable should be given the vaccine immediately, to save as many lives as possible. Also, I’m advocating for the County of San Diego to allow both law enforcement and teachers to receive the vaccine right now. We must get our teachers vaccinated, so we can get our kids back in the classroom. Jim Desmond represents the 5th District on the County Board of Supervisors.
verything went smoothly the other day at a mass vaccination center in the parking lot outside The Forum, the Inglewood arena kitty-corner from modernist SoFi Stadium, new home of the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers football teams. Lines of cars were long but manageable as they moved slowly and steadily. Nurses checked on the newly vaccinated recipients of first doses of Pfizer BioNTech inoculations against the dread COVID-19 virus, found to be at least partly effective on every mutation yet discovered. Folks were free to go after a 15-minute waiting period to assure they were having no immediate serious side effects. Staffers and nurses were competent, kind and friendly, some having come as temporary workers from points as distant as Louisiana and Ohio. The mix of cars inching forward ran from shiny new Range Rovers to ancient, oxidized Honda Civics. But some things were dreadfully wrong behind this pleasant, well-managed scene where health care workers and folks over 65 got their shots in the arm. The same flaws applied to other public and private vaccination sites in most California counties. For one thing, there was dreadful inconsistency in the vaccine rollout. Some hospitals served everyone on their patient roster over 65. Others vaccinated only seniors who were also among their most immune compromised patients. Shots were available at county sites to anyone over 65 who could book one, which proved no simple matter for many.
thomas d. elias
The inconsistency applied in almost all California counties as vague state guidelines left institutions to interpret local rules according to how much vaccine they had in their freezers. Confusion piled atop even bigger problems. A principal inequity was that almost no walkup vaccination sites accepted people lacking previously arranged appointments. It took computer savvy and equipment to make those appointments. Nothing in the state’s series of vaccination plans aimed to fix that problem. This left the entire enterprise looking like an exercise in economic discrimination and classism. There appeared to be only two ways to get appointments: go online and fight through ever-jammed websites where getting any response could seem miraculous, or go in person to a site and prevail on agreeable staffers to use their smartphones to get you an appointment. Big advantages went to those with fast computers and strong wifi. Anyone lacking either commodity would need lots of help getting the vaccine unless they were on the patient roster of a system like Kaiser Permanente’s, where phone calls went to all patients over 75 as soon as Kaiser got permission to vaccinate them. If you were a patient of other medical groups and did not check email or your personalized app from those systems, you would not learn appoint-
ments were available unless someone else told you. Then there was the matter of getting there. For the immobile, stranded at home with caregivers who might not have cars, there was no one bringing vaccine regardless of how many COVID risk factors they might have. The fact is that the poorer folks are the less likely they are to have reliable, strong wifi even when they have computers. They were not doing well in this system. As for getting to one of the large, mass distribution sites generally located in the large parking lots of places like Disneyland, Dodger Stadium and CalExpo, getting there took a car. Yes, processing and injection generally took only 45 minutes after arrival at The Forum, but some folks squirmed as long as five hours in their restroom-free vehicles at other big sites. It added up to discrimination against the poor and uncybernetic, especially folks lacking both computers and smartphones. “We know about the problems,” said Darrel Ng, senior advisor to the state’s COVID task force. “There will be more outreach. But we will need larger supplies of vaccine to make really big improvements.” For now, this means poor planning has created discrimination by economic class, since the poor are far more likely than others to lack needed skills and equipment. The bottom line: It should have been simple to get vaccinated, especially in California, whose governor has spent years preaching equal opportunity.

Oceanside appoints new District 1 member Questions arise about her residence By Samanatha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — After a tense Oceanside City Council workshop on Jan. 27 to interview candidates and choose who would represent District 1 until 2022, members decided that Oceanside resident Kori Jensen was right for the role. Jensen has deep roots in Oceanside starting with both sets of grandparents. On her mother’s side, her grandparents immigrated to Oceanside from Mexico, and on her dad’s side her grandfather came from Minnesota. Her mother worked for The Blade-Tribune, Oceanside’s former newspaper. Jensen recalled walking to South Oceanside Elementary School from her grandmother’s house on Tremont Street between Kindergarten and third grade. After that period of her early life, Jensen moved around a lot but always seemed to find her way back to Oceanside. “Home is where your heart is, and the best of my childhood memories and my heart will always be in Oceanside,” Jensen said. Jensen is a real estate agent and drug counselor, though her counseling work has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jensen previously volunteered at the McAlister Institute in Oceanside, which influenced the priorities she has for the city today. “I got to know and really care about a section of our community that I hadn’t had the opportunity before to interact with,” Jensen told The Coast News. “There you heard people’s stories about where they came from and where they’ve been, and you want to help them.” Jensen went on to complete a certification in a drug and alcohol-counseling program at University of California San Diego. Jensen’s number one priority for the city is combatting homelessness. For her, one way to deal with that problem is addressing the city’s housing supply and finding permanent housing for those without homes or on the verge of losing their homes. “If we can find permanent housing for citizens, it benefits everybody, including the client,” she said. Jensen is also con-
cerned about Oceanside businesses getting back on track and recovering from the past year’s pandemic hurdles. Representing District 1, one of the most diverse districts in terms of socioeconomic status as well as business, tourist and residential activity, is no small task. The District includes Downtown Oceanside and everything along the coast starting from its northwestern border and stopping at Oceanside Boulevard. Mayor Esther Sanchez was elected to represent District 1 when district elections were first implemented into City Council in 2018. Previously, she had served as an at-large member of Council since 2000. She served as the district’s representative until assuming her newly elected role as the city’s mayor, which left the District 1 seat open. Council decided to appoint a new member to District 1 rather than wait and spend the money on a special election. Though the other council members found it would be more prudent to appoint someone now rather than wait for an election, Sanchez strongly disagreed. Sanchez is an Oceanside native who has lived in District 1 nearly all of her life, growing up in the Eastside community, along with most of her family stemming back five generations. “This whole process has been very difficult for me as one who has lived in Oceanside all my life,” Sanchez said. For the mayor, the appointment process was “not the most democratic” option the city could have pursued when choosing the District 1 councilmember. She felt the brief interviews Council had with the nearly 35 candidates were not enough for her to feel comfortable choosing

Heebner wins defamation suit challenge By Dan Brendel
SOLANA BEACH — Solana Beach Mayor Lesa Heebner last month beat a challenge to a defamation suit arising from a political rival’s false assertion in 2016 that she’d abused her public position for personal benefit. For Heebner (plaintiff), the win clears the way for her defamation suit to proceed to a jury trial. The defendant engaged in “mere political hyperbole and rhetoric,” attorney John Sylvester said in his Dec. 16 oral argument before the state’s 4th District Court of Appeal. The defendant “believes in the veracity of his research, his investigation and his statements that he made, to this very day.” “In essence, [the defendant’s] position is that his publications were political opinions about a conflict of interest and not actionable. We disagree,” a panel of three justices, all concurring, said in their Jan. 6 published opinion. “Although political speech is appropriately accorded wide latitude, especially in election campaigns, calculated or reckless falsehoods can still amount to defamation.” Here’s the backstory, as outlined in the court’s opinion. Defendant Brian Hall served as campaign man-
‘Reckless falsehoods’ not protected speech, justices say ager for Edward Siegel, who ran unsuccessfully for Solana Beach City Council in 2016. On multiple occasions, then-Councilwoman (now Mayor) Lesa Heebner publicly opposed Siegel’s candidacy. “We need a Lisa [sic] retaliation,” Hall told Siegel in a text message, following one of Heeber’s unfavorable comments. Siegel later texted Hall concerning a “hit piece,” which would refer to Heebner, among others. During the 2016 fall election season, in various emails, social media posts and publications, Hall repeatedly suggested “shady” or “backdoor” dealings to which Heebner and then-Councilman Mike Nichols were allegedly party. In one email, Hall said Heebner and Nichols “lobbied” the regional transit district to award developer Joseph Balla a contract. Balla would in turn allegedly hire the councilmembers’ respective design and landscaping businesses, and also make a large donation to a nonprofit they favored. Hall said in another email that “many residents
of Solana Beach believe Nichols and … Heebner have a financial interest in the proposal that was accepted.” After one such communication to public officials and journalists, Siegel texted Hall, saying, “The seed has been planted,” praising Hall’s “inspired narrative.” Matt Tucker, who heads the transit agency that Hall said Heebner lobbied, repeatedly told Hall the agency had granted no development contract. Heebner, Nichols and Balla sued for defamation. Hall moved to strike the plaintiffs’ complaints under the so-called anti-SLAPP law, which aims to protect free speech against frivolous or bullying litigation. A lower court denied Hall’s motions, ultimately concluding that certain of Hall’s statements evidenced malice and amounted to libel. Hall appealed. “Even if … there was no conflict of interest, a person is allowed to arrive at an opinion that there was, and express that opinion,” Sylvester said in his oral argument on Hall’s behalf. “Expression of that
opinion goes to the core of the First Amendment free speech rights in this political context.” “There is ill will, in nearly every political debate,” he said. “It does not equate to actual malice.” “There seems to be a political strategy afoot,” namely, that a person can protect himself “by saying ‘rumor has it’ or ‘people are saying,’” Heebner’s attorney David Niddrie said in his oral argument. “But it accomplishes the same thing, which is, in the end, the prefatory language falls away, … and people believe what the statements are.” The justices concluded: “Hall knew or at least consciously disregarded the fact that Heebner and Nichols had no role in the [transit district’s bid] selection process and the [transit district] had no agreement with Balla. “… The evidence indicates that Hall was motivated by personal hostility to the plaintiffs and had little to no regard for the truth of the publications.” The justices upheld the lower court’s denial of Hall’s anti-SLAPP motions, except in one instance, disagreeing that Heebner suffered injury due to a particular political advertisement. The court awarded Heebner and her co-plaintiffs costs on appeal.

County opens Vaccination Super Station in San Marcos By City News Service
REGION — North County residents are now able to get COVID-19 vaccines closer to home, as San Diego County opened its third Vaccination Super Station on Jan. 31 at Cal State San Marcos Sports Center. “The vaccine offers our pathway out of this, the road to recovery, to restoring, to renewing,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Nathan Fletcher said before the first patients with appointments started getting a dose of the vaccine at 9:30 a.m. Fletcher said the initial goal set in early January was to give 200,000 vaccinations by the end of the month. “We’re now well over 300,000,” he said. “This is driven by a couple of things,” he continued. “Number one, the demand for the vaccine is exceedingly high. We have far greater demand to get the vaccine that we have vaccines. We are grateful to so many San Diegans who are so committed to getting the vaccine because, again, this is our pathway out of what we face. “Number two, we have incredible county staff and we have tremendous partners in the health system.” Supervisor Jim Desmond joined Fletcher, calling the San Marcos site “a very positive game-changer for all of us in North County.” “It's truly a remarkable collaborative effort,” Desmond said. “I'm glad to be part of it.” The site will be open to the public weekly from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday. Initially the site is expected to vaccinate 250 to 1,000 people per day, depending on the number of vaccines available, eventually building up to 5,000 or more vaccines daily. The site is being hosted at CSUSM, with partnership from Palomar Health,

UC San Diego Health and Tri-City Medical Center. The county has received more than 485,900 vaccines. Fletcher said there is a normal lag in reporting the numbers, but 1.6% of the county's population over the age of 16 has been fully vaccinated. Fletcher said an East County Super Station is in the works for this week, but he hasn't named a date or location. Appointments for this site can be made online at www.VaccinationSuperStationSD.com. Those who arrive for appointments can park at 103 Campus View Drive. There will be free parking on floors two and three of the parking structure.
COVID-19 hospitalizations drop, but vaccine supply an issue REGION — While COVID-19 hospitalizations in San Diego County continue to decline, health officials say the number of vaccines continues to be insufficient for demand. The news came Wednesday as the county

ment.’’ Of the county’s 1,347 long term nursing care facilities, 911 have already received at least the first dose of the vaccine, Fletcher said. Fletcher said San Diego was behind only Contra Costa County in California’s largest counties in terms of how many vaccines have been administered. According to the county Health and Human Services Agency, San Diego County has received 586,325 doses of vaccine and has administered 357,507 doses. Around 2% of the population over the age of 16 are fully vaccinated, but Fletcher said numbers of doses administered are likely “significantly delayed.’’ Wednesday marked the second consecutive day with fewer than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases. Tuesday was the first day since Nov. 30 to fail to cross that number. Wednesday’s data raised the county’s cumulative caseload to 241,018 and the death toll to 2,683 amid signs that the post-holiday surge is waning.

reported 968 new coronavirus infections and 54 new virus-related deaths. It was the second straight day the county reported fewer than 1,000 new cases. Prior to Tuesday, the county had logged at least that many every day since Nov. 30. County Board of Supervisors Chairman Nathan Fletcher praised the work county staff has done in getting vaccine infrastructure running, but admitted the number of actual vaccines available is behind what he would like. “Efforts have far outpaced the supply of vaccines,’’ he said. The county has the capacity to administer more than 20,000 vaccines daily and expects to raise that to 30,000 next week, Fletcher said, but only has the supplies to administer around 10,000 vaccines a day. He asked for patience as the county was working to get more doses. “Because of this, we only make appointments available for vaccines we have or are confident are coming,’’ he said. ``We don’t want to cancel an appoint-

The HHSA reported 1,265 people hospitalized with the virus on Wednesday — down 32 from Tuesday. Of those hospitalized, 369 are in intensive care units, down 15 from Tuesday. The county’s peak for COVID-19 hospitalizations — 1,804 — was set Jan. 12 and has declined since. The record for ICU hospitalizations of coronavirus patients — 438 — was set on Jan. 20, and has also declined slowly since with the exception of a 12-patient bump on Monday. There are 40 available staffed ICU beds in the county, but Fletcher said that number isn’t likely to increase any time soon. Due to filling hospital beds over the last several months, many non-emergency surgeries and procedures were postponed. Hospitals are rushing to make those up now while COVID-19 beds become available. Of the 19,794 tests reported Wednesday, 5% returned positive, bringing the 14-day average percentage of positive cases below 8%. As recently as Jan. 13, that average was above 13%. The county’s adjusted case rate as of Tuesday is 42.5 new cases per 100,000 population in the past seven days. That’s a drop of 7.1 per 100,000 over the past week. To be dropped into the more permissive red tier of the state’s four-level reopening plan, cases have to be fewer than seven per 100,000. San Diego became authorized to administer vaccines Tuesday, and city paramedics began providing doses in Balboa Park Municipal Gym to area government workers eligible according to state and county guidelines, including those 65 and older.
Another 100 doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered Wednesday to eligible homeless residents sheltering at the San Diego Convention Center as part of the Operation Shelter to Home program. The city received an initial shipment of 1,200 doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines this week. Mayor Todd Gloria is exploring additional cityowned locations as potential vaccination sites when more doses become available. The number of doses delivered directly to the city will depend on vaccine availability statewide. San Diego County’s fourth vaccination super station opened Tuesday at the Grossmont Center shopping mall in La Mesa, while a smaller distribution site opened in San Ysidro on the Southwestern College campus. UC San Diego Health announced Tuesday that it will open another vaccination super station on its campus for qualifying UCSD Health patients, faculty and staff. The vaccination site will begin operating next Monday inside the UCSD’s Recreation, Intramural and Athletic Complex. Vaccination appointments can be made at www. vaccinationsuperstationsd. com. The site also includes a map of where vaccines are being distributed.
Father Joe’s prepares to administer vaccines to unsheltered residents REGION — Homeless services provider Father Joe’s Villages is preparing for a large-scale COVID-19 vaccination effort for its clients once they become eligible under the state’s vaccination rollout, its’ leaders announced Feb. 1. Father Joe’s Villages will adopt a multi-level approach to ensure people in need have access to vaccinations, including vaccination events offered in congregate living shelters, in collaboration with San Diego County. The organization’s plan also includes residential, case management, day center and outreach teams providing education on vaccination to people living in its housing programs and to those on the street to encourage individuals to get vaccinated. The organization’s clients fall under the state’s Phase 1B Tier Two as part of congregate settings with outbreak risk along with incarcerated people. Also in that tier are people at risk of exposure in the transportation and logistics, industrial, commercial, residential, and sheltering facilities and services and critical manufacturing industries. It is the next tier to become eligible under the state’s plan.

Solana Beach selects citizen commissioners By Dan Brendel

Locals protest Smilax development By Steve Puterski
VISTA — Residents are pushing back against a proposed high-density development sandwiched between the borders of Vista and San Marcos in a sliver of unincorporated county land. KB Home received approval from the San Diego County Planning Commission in November 2020 for its 62 townhomes and a rezone application to increase the density on the five-acre lot off Smilax Road and Mimosa and Poinsettia avenues. About 20 to 30 residents protested Jan. 28 near the site as they fear a greenlight from the San Diego County Board of Supervisors on Feb. 10 will have severe impacts on the neighborhood, according to resident Maureen Hudson. “This is a huge, highly dense development for this neighborhood,” she said. “It’s just way too dense. If they could put something in with the existing zoning, that would be great. We’re not opposed to development, we’re just opposed to this high density because we just don’t have the infrastructure here.” Of the issues, the residents say there are no plans by KB Homes to improve on Smilax Road, which is two lanes and already failing, no sidewalks, adding 500 vehicle trips per day and a potential conflict with the City of Vista possibly annexing the land. In an email from John Conley, Vista’s director of community development, to the county he said, “the property is within our Sphere of Influence (sic) and our General Plan designates this area as Low Density.” The density rezone also has residents angered as the current designation is for two units per acre, while the project calls for 15 per acre. Also, residents are

Road area for parking and must walk to their homes. “Only 30 residences were notified by the county in accordance with regulations requiring notice to only those residences within 300 feet of the project,” resident Ken Knight said in a press release. “This project has been in the
works for a year and a half, and the only sign notifying residents about the development was posted on the property about two weeks ago.” The project, though, would contain 15 buildings, two common open spaces and a turf dog park, according to an analysis conducted by Rincon Consultants, Inc. The analysis said the project would not result in substantial conflicts, incompatible development, would offer needed housing and would be consistent with the land use. The units, meanwhile, would range from 1,679-square feet to 1,918 and include two-car garages. The current single-family residence on the property would be demolished and a private 24-foot-wide road connecting Smilax Road. Twenty-three open parking spaces would be on site in addition to the 124 garage spaces, according to the analysis. “I will evaluate all the merits and issues on the
project, including public comment and testimony, prior to making any decision,” said Supervisor Jim Desmond, who represents the area and much of North County.
SOLANA BEACH — The Solana Beach City Council unanimously appointed 17 people, mostly incumbents, to the city government’s five citizen advisory commissions at its Jan. 27 meeting. Councilmembers reassigned current members to all nine open positions between the Budget and Finance, Climate Action and View Assessment Commissions. Seven nonincumbents also applied. Whereas the Climate Action Commission previously included two councilmember liaisons, the council reduced that number to one, making room to reappoint former Councilwoman Judy Hegenauer instead. For seven open positions between the Public Arts and Parks and Recreation Commissions, councilmembers reappointed four current members. All incumbent commissioners who applied were reappointed for new two-year terms. Citizen commissions serve to “formulate recommendations and assist the city council in addressing community concerns and needs,” according to the city’s web site. Such commissions are a regular fixture of municipal governments. With the exception of planning commissions, which may have certain limited powers, such as to subdivide parcels, citizen commissions generally don’t exercise any policymaking or budgetary authority. “This year was an odd year and people didn’t get much of a chance to be on the commission this year,” Mayor Lesa Heebner said. “I do want to make sure we thank everybody for applying,” Councilwoman Kelly Harless said. “It’s always really, really hard when we have more qualified people then we have positions open. This was a weird year and I don’t want people to feel dissuaded from applying
again.” “I want to reiterate since we do have so many applicants and they’re all qualified, this year has thrown everything off,” Councilwoman Kristi Becker said. “The View Assessment [Commission] has not met, and I think [new] people have not gotten their full taste of the commission. I want to reappoint my current [nominee] … for that reason.” “It would be to the benefit of the city … to reappoint those members whose terms are expiring,” Climate Action Commission Chair Jonathan Goodmacher told the So-

SAN MARCOS - February 5, 2021 — After much anticipation, Silvergate San Marcos, a premier San Diego County retirement community, announced today that the long-awaited first doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine were administered to residents, caregivers and staff on Sunday, January 17, 2021. Licensed Vocational Nurses at Silvergate assisted incoming vaccine teams from Omnicare, the parent company to well-known retail pharmacy chain, CVS Pharmacy, in vaccinating the community’s residents, who were designated as a priority for the shots in Phase I of the Centers For Disease Control’s national vaccine rollout guidelines. “We are all ready to get back to normal and enjoy life beyond the pandemic, and these vaccines are the key to doing that,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, the Executive Director at Silvergate who has been closely working with state authorities to ensure that Silvergate was one of the first senior living communities in San Marcos to be able to vaccinate its seniors. “There’s finally a light at the end of this tunnel. We’re already planning new activities for our residents to enjoy in the coming weeks once everyone is safely vaccinated a second time.”

Any of our events where we were gathering together indoors had to pretty much be put on hold. Now, we’re all just waiting with bated breath for the pandemic to be behind us so that Silvergate can go back to doing one of the things it does best…which is having great events and enjoyable activities.” “I’m so thankful to be here at Silvergate and to be among the first to be getting this vaccine,” said Leonor Renter, a Silvergate resident who says she misses the community’s day trips, going to restaurants, being a part of the Walking Club and her beach walks. “We’re all tired of dealing with masks and social distancing. We want to go back to our everyday lives and be able to have family and friends visiting again.

Fire Capt. dies of COVID-19 By City News Service
A husband and father of three who worked early in his career for the Federal Fire Department in San Diego and the U.S. Forest Service, Mertz was an active member of his union and an original member of San Diego Urban Search and Rescue Task Force, which responds to disasters. Mertz’s son is a firefighter with Cal Fire San Diego and his daughters are in the U.S. Air Force, according to the fire department. “Our hearts go out to Chris’ family,” the department said.

tively in the most recent 2020 election. Jensen felt the tension regarding the appointment process during the meeting and in the days following. She said she understood why people were upset, but felt it was more logical for the city was to appoint someone to fill the council seat now. Since the Jan. 27 meeting, questions about Jensen’s qualifications for the role have popped up as well as questions about where she really lives. Jensen is the owner of 815 North Pacific St., which is the address she listed on her application for the council position. Jensen also owns 7039 Estrella Del Mar in Carlsbad, which some believed was her actual residence. According to Jensen, she does not live at the property in Carlsbad but her son does. She also told The Coast News that she previously rented out her North Pacific Street home on Airbnb, but said she now lives there and will not be using it as a short-term rental anymore. “It’s my primary address,” Jensen said. “I’m not going to rent it out ever again.” City Council members are required to live in the districts they represent. According to City Clerk Zeb Navarro, the Clerk’s Office cannot verify if an applicant or candidate actually lives at their stated address.

a new member, let alone someone she had never heard of, and felt the city should have held an election despite the associated costs and wait time. Had the city gone through with a special election, which would not have happened until November, the council would have continued working with only four members as opposed to five members for almost an entire year. Cost estimates for a special election were not cheap. City Clerk Zeb Navarro previously estimated that a special election would cost more than $250,000. At the Jan. 27 meeting, Councilmember Ryan Keim said a more recent estimate concluded that a special election would have cost between $400,000 and $600,000. “Marshall Street Pool costs us $47,000 per summer to operate, Brook Street Pool is $500,000 a year, Crown Heights Resource Center is $122,000 a year, and Balderrama Recreation Center is $248,000 a year,” Keim said. “I think that $400-600,000 is not made up, fake money — that is real money that goes to real services and I think it’s incumbent upon us to look at qualified candidates and see if we can find consensus and find someone who can really represent our city.” Both Keim and Councilmember Peter Weiss suggested Jensen as one of their finalists for the position. Councilmember Chris Rodriguez did not choose any finalists but opted for Jensen in the end. Several residents who gave public comment during the meeting were frustrated with the council’s decision to appoint yet another councilmember in a matter of three years. In 2018, Weiss was appointed mayor, and in 2019 Keim was appointed as a member. Both Keim and Weiss ran for reelection as council members and won Districts 3 and 4 respec-

Business owners want Carlsbad officials to review COVID-19 enforcement By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — When Gov. Gavin Newsom lifted statewide COVID-19 restrictions in various regions on Jan. 25, news spread quickly among small business owners in Carlsbad. While the governor's order allows restaurants to resume outdoor dining, a number of local restaurant owners have called on the Carlsbad City Council to readdress its enhanced COVID-19 enforcement policy passed on Jan. 19. Any councilmember can bring back the item to the council for further discussion of abandoning enforcement orders, according to city staff. However, the council has yet to bring up the matter. A number of municipalities have lifted tougher restrictions on outdoor dinings, such as Los Angeles County. Each councilmember was asked by The Coast News about readdressing the city's agenda item for a third time, despite sowing a deep division between struggling small business owners and angry residents seeking enhanced penalties for willful violators of state and county health orders. Only Mayor Matt Hall and Councilwoman Teresa Acosta responded to questions about the new orders and state of the city’s incentive and enforcement efforts. Justin Jachura,

co-founder of Señor Grubby’s, said a group of Carlsbad Village restaurateurs, and other business owners in the city, have been told the council is willing to collaborate. Jachura said he spoke with Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel but has yet to hear from Councilwoman Cori Schumacher, the District 1 representative for Carlsbad Village. Others called for the creation of a Merchants Committee with the city to push forward collaborative efforts and solutions to their concerns. “We are thankful as an industry and community that the state chose to lift restrictions,” Jachura told the council during public comment at its Jan. 25 meeting. “We would love to get with our District 1 representative and anyone else on the coun-
cil. We would love to collaborate with the city for marketing, economic structure and planning. We should
divert some of those funds that were used for fines into marketing. We’re committed to our community, our workers and safety, safety, safety.” Acosta, who brought forward the Jan. 19 item regarding a comprehensive approach establishing incentives and further enforcement, did not commit to bringing back the item at a future meeting. Acosta said there is conflicting information about the public health orders. Acosta added the public health orders are issued by the state and county, and not by cities. As for Carlsbad, she said they working to keep in compliance and protect the health and safe-
ty of our community to the best of their ability. “The Carlsbad City Council’s comprehensive approach is flexible,” Acosta said. “We included financial assistance and promotional incentives to local small businesses in this challenging time. We stepped up our efforts to coordinate and collaborate with the County and other cities in the region. And we made clear that pandemic assistance, including special permits to extend operations into the public right of way, would only be available to those businesses complying with state and county health orders.” Each council member was also asked if they are
SMUSD superintendent search ongoing By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Unified School District’s search for a new superintendent is underway, with the governing board expected to make a selection by April 20. The district began the search soon after the new governing board was seated Dec. 15. In the meantime, SMUSD has been led by former superintendent Kevin Holt, followed by current Interim Superintendent Tiffany Campbell, as of Jan. 19. The position became vacant after former Superintendent Carmen García abruptly resigned in September following months of conflict with parents and district teachers. The district has secured the help of advisers Suzette Lovely and Beverly Hempstead from Education
Support Services (ESS), a consulting firm that helps school districts with superintendent searches, governance training, human resources and more. “The Governing Board's decision to retain Dr. Lovely and Ms. Hempstead to advise and engage in the search for our district's next superintendent shows a commitment to finding the right candidate for the position through an open and transparent process,” Campbell said. “I am confident that the board will take all feedback and input seriously and will make a decision that will be best for our entire SMUSD educational community.” Applications for the position are due Feb. 26; until then the board will continue to gather input from various TURN TO SMUSD ON A13

The county has not released data regarding outbreaks at businesses and other sectors, thus allowing residents to unknowingly patronize or engage in some with those entities, said Hall. The mayor said he does not understand the lack of data being provided and questioned the motives of the state and county regarding small businesses. “It’s one more step of being punitive … I mean, give me a break,” Hall said. “No science, no fact, no study for what they’ve put small business through over this last nine months,” Hall said.

Del Mar schools continue in-person learning plan ‘We’re open and it’s working,’ say school officials By Dan Brendel
DEL MAR — Administrators at Del Mar Union School District supported the school board's decision in September to keep elementary schools open despite COVID-19, citing a summary of epidemiological evidence at the school board’s Jan. 27 meeting. “We’re open and it’s working,” Director of Student Services Jennifer Huh told school board trustees. “We continue to have had no outbreaks. We have not had any school transmission.” The Del Mar elementary school district operates eight K-6 campuses, serving about 4,100 students. “Reduced class sizes, use of outdoor learning spaces, and the implementation of health and safety protocols allow for the safe return to school five days each week,” according to the district’s web site. Whereas other “districts with large class sizes must consider implementing a hybrid schedule [half the week on campus, half online from home] due to the district’s inability to effectively reduce class sizes low enough for adequate distancing.”

Enrollment in Del Mar schools is increasing, with students “moving over from charter schools, moving over from private schools, as well as moving into the district,” Assistant Superintendent Shelley Petersen said. “Often the reason [principals hear from families] is: ‘Well, because you’re one of the districts that’s open and my child needs an in-person experience.’ They’re actually renting places within our district so their children can attend school.”
“We’re able to collect data and see … that our schools are a safe place for learning and for students,” Huh said. Specifically, she pointed to a Dec. 20 report from the California Department of Public Health. “In epidemiological studies globally and nationally, the evidence suggests that children seem to get COVID-19 less frequently than adults,” according to the report. “Originally it was thought that they might be less frequently di-
agnosed due to less testing because children are more often asymptomatic or have less severe symptoms. However, population-wide studies in Iceland and Spain using antibody tests that assess prior infection at any time find that children have lower rates of infection compared to adults.” An Australian study put the child-to-child transmission rate at 0.3%, compared to 1% for child-toadult transmission, 1.5% for adult-to-child transmission,
and 4.4% for adult-to-adult transmission. “Children who do contract COVID-19 most often get it from a household contact,” Huh said. “This indicates that we have more control over inschool transmission since adults are more likely to be able to adhere to policies for mitigation strategies,” according to the health department’s summary report. “Core strategies include: masks; physical distancing; small, stable groups; hand hygiene; ventilation; screening for symptoms or close contact; and asymptomatic testing. Each layer provides additional protection and, when used together, have been associated with low or zero transmission, even in communities with high COVID-19 prevalence.” “We all are very clear about what we need to do to educate our children during a pandemic,” Superintendent Holly McClurg told trustees. “I don’t even see [learning] loss” amongst students whose parents opted for online rather than in-person instruction, McClurg said. “We have very engaged parents who are acting as learning coaches for our children in our [online] program.” Huh said she expects education and childcare workers in San Diego County will begin receiving vaccinations “within the next few weeks.”

stakeholders. “In January, we spent time with a variety of focus groups, so different stakeholder groups like principals, parents, community members, members of the city council, city managers and district office staff, and we just gathered information about the district’s strengths, some of the needs and issues that an incoming superintendent might need to be aware of and important qualities of a new superintendent,” Lovely said. These findings will be presented to the board on Feb. 16. Lovely also told The Coast News that the new superintendent does not have to be from San Marcos or from San Diego County. “The parameters that the board has given us is that they want the best candidate that will lead SMUSD into the future,” Lovely said. “The board is really looking for a candidate that is able to take a great district — a district that is known for being exceptional — and move it forward.” Once Lovely and Hempstead narrow down the applicants, they will present them to the board, who will then decide which applicants to interview extensively. The new superintendent’s contract will officially be approved by April 20.

Escondido man pleads guilty to tax evasion By City News Service
ESCONDIDO — An Escondido man pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal charge of filing a false tax return, marking the tenth defendant to admit a role thus far in a series of fraud schemes involving former Chabad of Poway rabbi Yisroel Goldstein. Stuart Weinstock, 64, admitted to making fraudulent donations to the Chabad of Poway over an eight-year span. Prosecutors say about 75% of the money he claimed he donated was returned to him, allowing Weinstock to evade more than $100,000 in taxes. Sentencing is slated for April 26, when Weinstock faces a maximum possible penalty of three years in prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “Mr. Weinstock’s tax evasion scheme spanned eight years, exploiting charitable giving laws and abusing a tax-exempt religious organization.’’

ported by The Coast News. While they didn’t have official votes on board policy, Cruz and the other students participated in meetings, provided updates of school happenings and gained insight into operations of the board and school district. “The person they were describing was involved in a lot of different activities on campus, speaking in front of people and had an interest in sitting in on board meetings,” Cruz said of what drew her to apply in a 2018 interview. “All three of those categories fit me. I thought it would be a good fit.” Cruz’s best friend, Nina Accardi, posted a message on Instagram expressing her appreciation for their friendship and all the memories they shared. Accardi recalled memories of singing along with Cruz in the car, laughing and crying. For Accardi, Cruz CARLSBAD HIGH SCHOOL alumna and Purdue University junior Katie Cruz, 20, died Sunday, Jan. 24, following an accident, according to media and police reports.

Rest easy angel. I love you forever.” Cruz’s boyfriend, Conner MacGray, also posted a loving tribute to his late love expressing how her presence will be missed every day. MacGray said their relationship kept his life exciting and engaging, living up to Cruz’s philosophy of making the most out of every day. He also reminisced about the places, people and adventures they shared, thus making her short life an extraordinary one. “Words can only do so much but it is clear how many cared deeply about Katie and myself,” MacGray said. “Katie will be missed, but the memories she gave us can never be taken away.” Catherine Allen contributed reporting to this story.

North Coast Corridor Program
Fix your diet and feel better Reflection and anticipation for 40-year vision with Primal Balance Nutrition The North Coast Corridor (NCC) program jointly operated by SANDAG and Caltrans is a balanced set of transportation, environmental, and coastal access projects to improve the quality of life for residents, create a stronger local and regional economy for the future, and enhance the north San Diego County coastal environment. The $6 billion, 40-year vision is an implementation blueprint for developing and building projects as part of a holistic and connected system of mobility facilities. These efforts align with SANDAG’s vision for the 2021 Regional Plan, which reimagines how people and goods could move throughout the region in the 21st century, fundamentally shaped by five key strategies for mobility, collectively known as the 5 Big Moves—Complete Corridors, Transit Leap, Mobility Hubs, Flexible Fleets, and the Next OS. The successful NCC program has been advancing critical projects along San Diego’s north-south coastal corridor since its landmark, unanimous adoption by the California Coastal Commission in 2014. Nearly $1.5 billion in NCC projects have already been delivered or are currently under construction in the North Coast Corridor. These projects include coastal rail line improvements – such as double tracking, replacing bridges, and upgrading stations – Interstate 5 (I-5) highway improvements, including

interchange and operational improvements in La Jolla and Carpool/HOV Lane construction – active transportation improvements – such as closing gaps in our coastal bike network and building new paths to connect communities – and preserving our environment – by protecting, restoring, and enhancing several of our six critical coastal lagoons. In 2020 alone, as part of the $118 million San Elijo Lagoon Restoration project, Caltrans, SANDAG, and Nature Collective achieved significant restoration work in the San Elijo Lagoon and opened two pedestrian bridges to create a new trail connection that extends southwest from the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center to a new rail undercrossing and Harbaugh Seaside Trails in Solana Beach. Caltrans and SANDAG also completed new sidewalks and dedicated bike lanes at two I-5 undercrossings in Encinitas. Rail line improvements
are a critical NCC component. SANDAG and North County Transit District (NCTD) are leading efforts to build more double track, construct new rail stations, and stabilize the coastal bluffs in the City of Del Mar. The fourth phase in a series of bluff stabilization efforts in Del Mar was completed in early January 2021. The fifth phase is scheduled to begin in 2022 and will address additional seismic and critical stabilization needs. On December 8, 2020, the California Transportation Committee (CTC) announced $106 million to fund trade corridor enhancement along the LOSSAN rail line. These funds will go directly to improving the San Diego section of the 351mile LOSSAN coastal rail corridor. The El Portal rail line undercrossing project broke ground in December 2020 and will be complete in 2022. In spring 2021, NCTD will roll five new, state of
the art Siemens locomotives into COASTER service and several renovated COASTER passenger cars. Another four locomotives are anticipated to go into service by summer 2023, replacing an aging fleet and positioning NCTD to be able to nearly double COASTER service. SANDAG leveraged funds to purchase two of the new locomotives and 10 new passenger cars in support of NCTD’s commitment to increasing service reliability and ridership experience. Additionally, all existing 28 COASTER passenger cars will also be overhauled within the next five years – receiving new exterior paint, new carpet and flooring, new seating upholstery, LED overhead lighting and USB charging ports at select seats. The service roll out of the first locomotives and COASTER cars are a critical step towards making travel easy, reliable, and inviting for riders. Expect to see progress in 2021 on I-5 Carpool/HOV Lanes in Encinitas and Carlsbad, new bicycle and pedestrian paths taking shape as part of the North Coast Bike Trail and San Elijo Lagoon trail network, and first steps toward developing the Manchester Avenue Park & Ride/Multi-Use Facility.

Notice to potential bidders: If you are considering bidding on this
LEGALS property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. Notice to property owner: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619) 7041090 or visit this Internet Web site innovativefieldservices. com, using the file number assigned to this case 20646. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. For any other inquiries, including litigation or bankruptcy matters, please call (619) 7041090 or fax (619) 704-1092. Notice to tenant: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (619) 704-1090, or visit this internet website innovativefieldservices.com. com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 20646 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee.

Oceanside’s Mendoza is at home during Farmers Insurance Open

yle Mendoza thought to pinch himself, but he resisted. Despite Mendoza slipping on his golf shoes countless times, this was different. “My locker was right next to Rory,” Mendoza said. “I said ‘Hi’ to him but I’m thinking, ‘That is Rory McIlroy and this is crazy.’ ” Mendoza would have been nuts to quit chasing a golf ball. He aspired to play in a PGA Tour event, and at age 33, it was mission accomplished at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course. Of course, Oceanside’s Mendoza had the jitters. Of course, he wouldn’t have traded those rattled nerves for the world. “It was really cool,” Mendoza said. When the PGA Tour visits North County, the focus is on the biggest stars with the boldest games. But for every McIlroy, there are thousands of others trying to make a name, too. Mendoza, the director of performance at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, had done his heavy lifting before the Farmers. He won the Southern California PGA Professional Championship that guaranteed an entry into the PGA’s American Express in Coachella Valley. Mendoza swung a deal with another qualifier, swapping out the desert exemption for one at the seaside track not far from Mendoza’s digs. “It was great being at home and sleeping in my own bed every night,” Mendoza said. Mendoza’s debut wasn’t a 48-hour spin. He made the cut and pocketed $15,900 with his 4-over par 292, tying him for 65th. It was clear Mendoza belonged. The ball-striker
KYLE MENDOZA, the director of performance at Rancho Santa Fe’s Farms Golf Club, competed in his first PGA Tour event at the Farmers Insurance Open. Mendoza, of Oceanside, made the cut and tied for 65th place, pocketing nearly $16,000. Courtesy photo
who’s deft with his short game competes with pros, and knows them, too. “One of the cool parts of working where I work is quite a few tour players play there,” Mendoza said. “Phil Mickelson and Xander Schauffele are members. “A couple of weeks before the Farmers I played a round with Phil at La Jolla Country Club. It can be a little nerve-wracking playing with a Hall of Famer, but it was nice to get that under my belt.” Mendoza’s stories expand when mentioning Carmel Valley’s Schauffele. “We played the (Torrey Pines) North the Sunday before the tournament and got in nine holes,” Mendoza said. “It was awesome because he is No. 5 in the world and playing with him a couple of times, especially at Torrey, was great preparation for me.” Like being strong mentally. Especially when near the cut line with the second round winding down and a gale howling off the Pacific Ocean. At the exposed No. 15 tee on the North, a missed shot and just maybe Mendoza is gone with the wind. “There was a crosswind and it would have been the wrong time to hit a bad shot,” he said. “You could easily make five on that hole in those conditions.” Instead of getting
blown away, Mendoza struck a 5-iron to the green’s middle for par. He didn’t falter down the stretch to make his first cut in his first PGA Tour event. Mendoza always had the drive and then some. He drove 100 miles, each way, for a year to a San Gabriel Valley country club before landing at The Farms. Mendoza caught the golf bug at age 6 from his father, Steven, and tried to keep pace with his older brother, Mike. Mendoza’s journey, in many ways, had its biggest payoff at the Farmers. Mendoza’s haul didn’t quite match winner Patrick Reed’s $1.35 million take. But someone’s wealth isn’t always calculated by numbers. When Mendoza’s attempt to qualify for the PGA Tour in 2013 fizzled, he focused on golf’s business side. Then he started playing satellite tours and, somehow, that had him nestled next to McIlroy. “(Over) the last couple of years my game has improved a lot,” Mendoza said. “That gave me the itch to play again.” But it was more than just an itch. Mendoza proved that, with perseverance, dreams really can come true. Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow @jparis_sports.

San Dieguito Academy golf expects pandemic pains, crowded courses ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Academy (SDA) golf team expects tee time troubles this spring. Golf courses are packed as a result of the pandemic, and the team’s start time has been pushed back several times to accommodate the influx of additional golfers. Everyone has seemingly flocked to the outdoors; golf courses, bike paths, hiking trails and campgrounds have become immensely
I think the kids need an outlet, but safety is the most important thing.” Scott Jordan Athletic Director, SDA
popular since the pandemic eliminated many indoor activities. With many people working from home, or out of work, golf courses in and around Encinitas are packed. SDA Golf Coach Al Zamora said golf hasn’t been this popular in years. In past seasons, the students would practice around 3 p.m. when the course began to slow down. But now, people are golfing later than normal and the kids will have to tee off closer to 4:30 p.m. They will literally be racing against the sun to get
nine holes in. That said, the school doesn’t have to pay to play. The Encinitas Ranch Golf Course provides the tee times, driving range, putting greens and countless buckets of balls to the students at no cost whatsoever. This saves the school and the parents an estimated $10,000 to $12,000 every season, Zamora said. “They’re there to make money, and we understand that,” he said. “They definitely support us, which is why I can’t complain too much about the tee times. We just appreciate everything they do for us.” To further complicate things, the girl’s season was canceled last fall, so they will play this spring alongside the boys. “This is an added hurdle we have to overcome because normally I would have 8 to 12 boys to play in the spring, but because of this I’m going to have another 8 to 10 girls as well; a team of 20 plus kids,” Zamora said. “Trying to accommodate that number of kids is tough. We have limited practice facilities, so we are still trying to figure out how all that will go.” Competition matches pose an additional obstacle for Zamora and the team to overcome. Home matches, Zamora said, are easy enough. Parents drive their kids to whichever local course is hosting the event. But the
team normally vanpools to non-local competitions. Athletes, parents, coaches and drivers alike may not be comfortable climbing into a van with one another. However, Zamora remains optimistic. The students are excited to be able
to play again and a modified season is better than no season at all. California’s Regional Stay Home Order was lifted last week, which allowed San Diego County to revert back to the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy colored
tier system. Sports like golf, tennis, and track and field can commence this month. But contact sports like lacrosse, baseball, softball and wrestling will have to wait until COVID-19 cases subside. Scott Jordan, SDA ath-
letic director, said that may take longer than expected. “It’s unfortunate. I think the kids need an outlet, but safety is the most important thing,” Jordan said. “We are being dictated by the state, and they are saying ‘Not right now.’”

San Marcos woman named Counselor of Year By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — A school counselor at Mission Hills High School was chosen the San Diego County Counselor of the Year award for her work with high school students. Cherryl Baker, a San Marcos local, has been a school counselor for 22 years in the San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD). She has been at Mission Hills since the school opened in 2004. On Jan. 22, the San Diego County Office of Education, along with Baker’s family and colleagues, surprised Baker with the award at Mission Hills. “My administration and my fellow counselors told me that we were going to be doing a presentation or an interview regarding school counseling because National School Counseling Week is coming up,” Baker said. “But when I arrived, they surprised me, and my husband and my son were there, too. It was a huge surprise, and I was really honored that so many people took the time to be a part of it.” Three counselors were chosen out of 47 submissions. One for the elementa-
ry school level, one for middle school and one for high school. “We’re thrilled to recognize these three school counselors,” said San Diego County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Gothold.

pandemic. Their budget is about $200,000 below their operating costs for the year. All of their funds come from private donations and small fundraising events. If the VA task force reports positive results, veterans could be prescribed surf therapy and the VA would help pay for programs like One More Wave. More funding means more equipment for additional veterans, ideally making a dent in the veteran suicide dilemma. “It would be incredible if we got grants per rider for their equipment,” Garnett said. “They have grants for adaptive sports, but [they have] very specific parameters. But with this new bill, hopefully it will open those doors up.” Last year’s Veterans COMPACT Act, signed into law last December, requires the Department of Veterans Affairs to assemble a
aving vaccines come available is absolutely glorious. It’s what I’ve been praying for since last summer. It fills me with such hope after this long, isolating time. Still, I have a problem. It means that before very much longer, we won’t be required to wear masks anymore. I know, I know. That is cause for rejoicing to most of you. But as I slapped on my mask this morning for a quick trip to the market, I was suddenly horrified. Today I was able to leave home after simply throwing my hair into a bun and skipping any fuss with my face, knowing that my mask would eliminate the need from eyes to Adam’s apple. For me that’s a minefield I have come to love disarming so simply these past months. I do, at least, manage eye makeup most days, but on weekends I slack off mightily. I wear my spectacles rather than contacts, and in concert with the mask, my glasses camouflage a host of other imperfections. Never mind that I look like a geek. I look mostly like everyone else for now and that will do. I can get out the door so much faster when I can just cover my face with paraphernalia. I have even become accustomed to wearing a KN95 mask. It’s not the kind you would find in a hospital room, but it is considerably heavier than the cloth ones I first wore. It makes me feel more secure, but more importantly, no one but I can smell my breath. It has been such a vacation, to be able to drink coffee and eat onions and garlic and not spend the day worrying if I am socially acceptable. I still have mints and sprays at the ready, but, dang, that mask has made “close” conversation easier. I know we aren’t all that

Local nonprofit offers surf therapy to help veterans By Dustin Jones
REGION — A recent Veterans Affairs’ study reported an average of 17 veterans died by suicide every day in 2018 — more than 6,000 a year. One More Wave, a veteran-based non-profit out of San Diego, uses surf therapy to try and impact those figures. The team of veterans and volunteers provide disabled veterans with the surf equipment necessary to paddle out as well as a community. “Once you have your stuff, equipment and access to other folks, you can do it indefinitely,” One More Wave’s chief of operations Rob Garnett said. “You don’t have to have appointments or procedures; you can do what you need to do outside.” The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates 37 to 50% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from one mental disorder or another. Many of the men and

women who participate in surf therapy with One More Wave previously struggled with treatment options. Often times self-medicating with drugs or alcohol. Approximately one-in-ten veterans in the United States have a substance abuse problem.
“We’ve had quite a few vets come forward and say they tried a bunch of meds from the VA––some for mental issues, other physical––but since they started surfing, they have been able to come off some or all of those meds,” Garnett said. “Lots of guys and girls talk
about how they missed the community that came with their military service.” Garnett and the One More Wave team have treated about 470 veterans and aim to help another 120 riders in 2021. But their funding has taken a hit due to the COVID-19

You can meet some of these leviathans up-closeand-personal by hopping aboard Oceanside Adventures’ 50-foot catamaran, homeported in Oceanside Harbor across from the lighthouse. “We are at the peak of the gray whale migration,” says Carla Mitroff, manager and spokesperson for Oceanside Adventures. “We’ve been seeing them consistently, and we always see lots of dolphins, too.” The southern migration begins in December and lasts until the end of April, but the trip north to their feeding grounds off the coast of Alaska can begin as early as February. “In fact, at some point in February, we’ll be seeing the whales going in both directions,” Mitroff says. For the uninitiated, you should know that gray whales: • Load up on food while spending summers off Alaska’s coast. Once migration starts southward, they swim continuously and never eat. • Breed and give birth off the coast of Mexico. • Grow to 50 feet long and weigh up to 36,000 pounds. • Have baleen, not teeth. Whales feed by scooping up giant mouthfuls of krill and other tiny sea life from the ocean floor. The baleen acts as

The COVID-19 pandemic presents challenges when it comes to opening ski resorts this season, but officials at North Tahoe say they are ready. “… Our business community, residents and visitors have quickly adapted to new protocols in support of our tourism-based economy,” said Andy Chapman, president and CEO of the Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitors Bureau. “The businesses in our region are incredibly resilient and have put tremendous thought and effort into ensuring they can operate safely this winter.” Area resorts and merchants feature new hand-sanitizing stations, more outdoor seating and takeout food, electrostatic sanitizing sprayers, RFID lift gates to provide touchless scanning, and “care teams” responsible for resort sanitation and cleanliness. Reservations and face-coverings are required everywhere, including for activities like ice skating, sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Guests also must practice social distancing throughout the resorts, businesses, on trails, public lands and other recreational areas. Have an adventure you want to share?

Quieter trains prompt more enforcement By City News Service
REGION — Starting today, the North County Transit District will enhance trespassing education and enforcement along the San Diego coastal rail corridor in advance of its plans to place five new Siemens Charger locomotives into service on Feb. 8. The locomotives are diesel-electric powered engines meeting governmentemission standards. They are considerably quieter than the current F-40 locomotives, which could be a benefit to the public — but also highlights the dangers of trespassing on the railroad right-of-way. “It is never a good idea to cross a railroad track unless you’re at a legal crossing,” said Sean Loofbourrow, NCTD chief of safety. “Trespassing across the rail line can result in tragic accidents that produce a ripple effect of trauma across the greater community. Witnesses, train crews, family members, friends and riders are all impacted by these tragic accidents. The momentary convenience of crossing the tracks illegally is never worth jeopardizing the safety of yourself and hundreds of others.” The San Diego County Sheriff’s Transit Enforcement Services Unit will increase its presence along the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo rail line between Oceanside and San Diego. Education will be a key part of this campaign, with deputies educating trespassers on the dangers of the tracks and passing trains. According to an NCTD statement, a high percentage of accidents and fatalities that occur along the rail lines are preventable and unrelated to suicide attempts. As needed, deputies can enforce penalties for those trespassing within NCTD's right-of-way.
Virtual We Pray San Diego event focused on healthcare workers, healing By Tigist Layne
REGION — Almost 2,000 people tuned in to the third We Pray San Diego gathering on Saturday, Jan. 30, to collectively pray for health care workers and those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 23 churches from all over San Diego County came together to host an hour-long virtual prayer to specifically address San Diego hospitals, health care staff, first responders, those struggling with COVID and their families. “We have seen the sacrifices made by our frontline health care worker, so we wanted to lift them up and to remind them that we see them, we see what they do day in and day out

hospitals and dozens of health care workers to ask them about their experiences and what they needed prayer for. Pastor John Ettore from The Gathering Place church told The Coast News that these health care workers expressed that they’ve never seen death like this before and that they’ve never experienced this kind of exhaustion. “They are feeling enormous emotional, spiritual, psychological pressure, so this means the world to them,” Ettore said. “They are deeply appreciative, they are overwhelmed and so thankful. They feel loved and seen, and they’re very grateful for the prayers.”
The event drew in 1,871 people from all over the county and even around the world. Last year, the first event drew 15,000 people from across San Diego County and other states, followed by the second gathering, which drew nearly 3,300 people. “We want to remind people that we are in this fight together, they are not alone in this and they don’t have to go far to find community,” Compean said. “We believe in the power of prayer, so we’re praying for everyone that is struggling through this pandemic. … We want to be a beacon of light and hope in the midst of a dark season.” Participants in the event were given an hour-
long guided prayer that was available in English and Spanish in the hopes that everyone would be unified throughout the entire prayer. “Over the last year, we’re divided politically, we’re divided regarding the health mandates. We have people that are leaving churches, mad at their pastors for wearing masks, for not wearing masks, for believing in COVID, for not believing in COVID, the racial divide — it is a mess,” Ettore said. “The church is fractured and fragmented ... so we called believers from all over the county to pray together. “That brings healing and clarity to what’s important and helps us remember who we are.”

are asymptomatic and can be growing without the patient even knowing,” said Dr. Samir Gupta, corresponding author of the study and professor of medicine in the division of gastroenterology at UCSD School of Medicine and VASDHS. “That is why it is so important to screen. But as our study shows, it is also critical to follow up with a colonoscopy if the screening result is abnormal.” Early detection means less invasive treatments and better outcomes. When detected early, patients have a 90% survival rate with a low risk of recurrence. Late-stage colorectal cancer means more invasive and complex treatment with less than a 15% survival rate. The national study involved 204,733 veterans ages 50 to 75 with an abnormal screening test. A limitation of the study was a high proportion of men; 5,453 women were included. “There are no national standards or mandates to guide patients, providers or health care systems on the clinically acceptable period of time between abnormal screening and colonoscopy,” said Dr. Folasade May, senior author of the study and assistant professor of medicine at UCLA. “We hope our findings will inform national standards for appropriate time intervals and interventions to improve timely colonoscopies and colorectal cancer outcomes.” A family history, smoking and poor diet are significant risk factors of colon cancer. Symptoms include rectal bleeding, low-iron anemia, a change in bowel habits and unexplained weight loss. In 2018, the American Cancer Society updated guidelines for colorectal cancer screening. It is now recommended that those age 45 with an average risk of colon cancer begin regular screenings.
programs to aid veterans in transition assistance, suicide care and mental health needs. This includes forming a task force to report on and make recommendations regarding the use of public lands and outdoor spaces for medical and therapeutic treatment for veterans.
REGION — A study released Tuesday — led in part by UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers — found waiting between abnormal results from a self-administered colorectal cancer screening and a colonoscopy increases the risk of being diagnosed with cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related mortality among men and women in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. At-home tests, which measure blood in stool as a potential marker for colon cancer, are often used for colorectal cancer screening. Usage of these home tests has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic as people try to avoid clinical visits. However, effectiveness of these screening tools, along with all colon cancer screenings, requires a follow-up colonoscopy if an abnormal test result occurs. The problem is that experts say current follow-up rates are low. The study, led by researchers at UCSD School of Medicine, Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System, Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System and UCLA, found delayed time between abnormal stoolbased screening and subsequent colonoscopy was associated with an increased risk of a cancer diagnosis and death from colorectal cancer. Published in the Feb. 2 online edition of Gastroenterology, the study found those who delayed a colonoscopy by more than a year after an abnormal screening test result were at an increased risk of being diagnosed with colorectal cancer. The odds of being diagnosed CROP with late-stage colon.93 cancer increased at 16 months .93 by approximately 33%. 4.17 “Many colon cancers 4.28

It is the intent of the school district’s board of trustees to provide equitable educational opportunities for all students of the district. In order to maintain an equitable balance in the enrollment at each campus, the board of trustees established attendance boundaries for each school in SDUHSD. Boundaries of school attendance areas in the district are as follows: • La Costa Canyon High School shall include the boundaries of the Encinitas and Cardiff school districts and the area north of Escondido Creek in Rancho Santa Fe dis-
trict. • San Dieguito High School Academy and Canyon Crest Academy shall be open to all district residents in grades 9 to 12 on an equal basis through an open enrollment application process approved by the board. To be eligible to attend SDHSA or CCA, a student must have selected the school during the established high school selection window process. • Torrey Pines High School shall include the boundaries of the Del Mar, Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe School Districts, with the exception of the area north of Escondido Creek in the Rancho Santa Fe School District.

Program, which supports undocumented/immigrant youth, and more. “I grew up in a military family and we moved every few years,” Baker said. “One of the things that was consistent was me being in school. I loved school, it was my safe place. So the idea of being part of making school a safe place for students is very special to me because schools had done that for me.” Baker’s parents are originally from the Philippines, which has inspired her to make sure that students from all walks of life feel embraced and empowered to not only succeed in school but in whatever they choose to do later in life, as well. “I find school counseling to be unique in that we can help empower students and families, and help them achieve equity and access. As counselors, we
can help students gain access to all of the resources and opportunities that are available to them, which then removes these perceived barriers that may be standing in the way of their goals,” Baker said. At the ceremony, Baker was presented with a $500 check, which she says she hopes to put toward a scholarship fund for seniors at Mission Hills. “I love Mission Hills so it’s a chance for me to represent this school that I love so much and the community that I love so much,” Baker said. “Hopefully, I can bring some awareness to the role of school counselors in schools. I hope people will see how much counselors are an integral part of our school systems.” All three counselors were to be highlighted and recognized during the 6th annual San Diego School Counselor Con on Feb. 4, the second day of the virtual conference.

Longboard surfing in the middle ages
y first surfboard (if you could call it a surfboard) was a piece of rudely hacked out plywood made with my neighbor’s electric saw after we saw “Gidget” together in 1959. It would be three more years before I owned a proper glass and foam surfboard, a 9 foot, 6 inch Wardy purchased with 45 of my hard-earned paper route dollars. From there it was a series of boards in the mid-9-foot range until the so-called “Shortboard Revolution,” a baby and bathwater event in the late ’60s that destroyed all things longboard. Surfers are not as independent minded as we like to believe, and it would take nearly a decade for longboards to come around again. When they did, many of us jumped onto the nostalgic bandwagon. We loved it until we rediscovered the limitations that made us hack them down in the first place. To put it simply, longboards don’t turn as quickly and don’t fit in the pocket as well as their shorter counterparts. Not to be critical of longboard surfing, but it does seem a little stagnant for people under the age of 30 to be devoted to a board that has changed little over the last 40 years. It would be like the ’60s generation abandoning foam surfboards and hopping on boards made of redwood. I wonder if collectively
SKATER HELPS WITH REHAB
LONGTIME SURFER Dan Dunlop with his Tomo Cymatic. Photo by Chris Ahrens
our youth are fearful of the future and find security in the past when 25-pound single-finned noseriders ruled the coast. Many of us who had surfed through the decades have grown tired of lugging “logs” (gosh I hate that word when it’s applied to somebody’s craft) to the beach. We want to continue surfing but realize that we won’t be doing it on microchips like those employed by John John and company. The alternative for us is either prone to the bone surfmats, bodyboards, kneeboards or Alias (I am a fan of all of them) or shorter boards with flatter rocker and more volume. Fishes, mini Simmons and Eggs have all contributed to getting older surfers into the ocean on more maneuverable surf craft.
You might have noticed the Tomo label in your local lineup. Daniel “Tomo” Thomson, the brain behind that brand, has teamed up with Firewire to create a variety of brilliant surfboard models to enhance the surfing experience for everyone from Kelly Slater to guys my age. My close friend Dan Dunlop began surfing in the ’60s, around the same time I did. Like many of us, Dan grew weary of lugging “logs” to the water. His solution is a 6 x 20, 40.2-liter Firewire Slater Tomo Cymatic. According to Dunlop, “It’s the fastest board I’ve ever ridden and because of the volume I can catch waves nearly as easily as I can on a longboard.” Like the first cellphones or electric cars, the future always
looks a little strange at first and the multi-concaved, double-winged Cymatic is no exception. You are, of course entitled to ride whatever feels good, whether it anchors you to the distant past or rockets you into the future. If the past becomes a revolving door of maneuvers, however, you might just try something shorter and racier. Then again, this rant may be nothing but a poor man’s midlife (or in my case late life) crisis. Whatever. I’m borrowing Dan’s Cymatic and paddling it out during the next swell. Either I will make a complete fool of myself in the process, or find a resurgence of the same stoke I felt after running home from seeing “Gidget” all those years ago. I’m betting on the latter.

The campaign is inspired by WSL PURE, the organization’s non-profit, VOLUNTEER
which has built a coalition of more than 60 Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and corporations in support of We Are One Ocean, including the Natural Resources Defense Council, Conservation International, Surfrider Foundation, Sea Legacy, Lonely Whale, Professional Association of Diving Instructors and World Sailing. “Establishing fully and highly protected areas is an incredible way to build resiliency in our ocean. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to protect critical ocean habitat and biodiversity for generations to come,” said Reece Pacheco, WSL Senior Vice President, Ocean Responsibility. “This isn’t just about the ocean. It’s about people. By protecting the ocean, and hitting 30x30, we guarantee a healthier future for all.” The WSL is launching a content series on Feb. 9, sharing the stories of six people’s connection to the ocean and their personal motivation for signing the petition.

Outdoor tasting, dining available again taste of wine frank mangio
ith Valentine’s Day just a brief week-plus away, our needy friends in the hospitality and wine business would love to see you for a hearty glass of wine and a dinner away from home. If time permits, visit
Cass Vineyard and Winery in Paso Robles, and hook up with owner Steve Cass and partner Ted Plemons. They’ve officially kicked off 2021 as the year of “New Beginnings and New Hopes.” Last year with the lockdowns and restrictions, not many of their upgrades and plans got to see the light of day. But it’s a new dawn and a new day and hopes are high that serving wine and food will be approved inside as well. Cass Vineyard and Winery began operations
back in 1999 when Steve Cass retired from the Charles Schwab brokerage business at 48 years old. Paso Robles was a favorite place to visit. That, and his love of wine, moved him to find a 145-acre pasture, perfect for a vineyard and winery. In 2002, Cass found Ted Plemons, a real estate builder, who constructed a tasting room, production barn and residence. A mutual love of Syrah reds led to other big ideas and soon Paso Robles had another progressive win-
ery, capped recently by the newest modern winery retreat, Geneseo Inn at Cass. Geneseo Inn is a luxury boutique hotel nestled in the rolling hills of Cass Winery’s 145 acres of vineyard, allowing guests to “breathe in the vineyard views.” At Geneseo, you’ll enjoy ultra-modern appliances and décor, panoramic elevated vineyard views from a private bedroom deck, and an included daily Estate Breakfast, prepared TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON B9

Coffee, whiskey and chocolate? Yes, please Cheers! North County
was perusing the First Light Coffee Whiskey website searching for a cocktail recipe that might inspire me to do more than just pour a few fingers of the good stuff onto an ice cube when I saw it. “Chocolate Whiskey Cake: A full cup o' joe and a hearty pour of Coffee Whiskey take this cake to the next level.” Um, yes please. Pre-pandemic I might have sent the recipe to my mom (an excellent baker) and suggest maybe we try to make it the next time she came to visit, knowing that she would do most of the making and I would do most of the eating. However, we are in a pandemic, and our visits are done primarily via video chat. If I was going to get some chocolate whiskey cake into my mouth, I was going to have to take matters into my own hands. I checked the ingredients list and conveniently had all the ingredients on hand. However, this would be my first attempt at making a cake that didn’t come pre-mixed in a package. I’ll be honest that I was a little nervous about the entire endeavor for two reasons. First, I’m vegan-ish. So I would have to substitute some ingredients. I make an exception for cheese, because, well, it is cheese. It is delicious and I’m from Wisconsin. I’ve tried to cut it out many times, but never succeeded. Second, there was some vocabulary terms in the recipe I wasn’t familiar with like “fold in the flour” and “saucepan.” I’m pretty comfortable in the kitchen, but my training isn’t what you might consider well-rounded. I poured a few fingers of coffee whiskey into a glass off to the side for hydration purposes, and then got to work.
I wrote the recipe down on some scrap paper to prevent my laptop from being splattered with chocolate and collected all the ingredients on the counter. I started melting vegan butter on low heat. I made a cup of Marea Baja coffee in a French press. I added chocolate and coffee and whiskey together. I whisked. I let things cool. I started folding in flour or doing something that I think was folding. I buttered the cake pan. I preheated the oven. I also sipped my coffee whiskey between steps, made an incredibly impressive mess in our tiny galley kitchen and turned the music up loud. Baking is fun. Finally, I added the chocolate chips to the mix, poured it into the pan and put the whole mix in the oven. When the bell dinged nearly an hour later, I opened the oven door and, I kid you not, there was a cake in there. I sprinkled powdered sugar over the thick dark brown cake, cut off a wedge, took a final sip of coffee whiskey and performed my official taste test. I’ll save the suspense. It was a cake with cof-fee, whiskey and chocolate, and it was freaking delicious.

Killer business: Lovin’ some Corner Pizza in Leucadia
nce again, I found myself perplexed when I saw a pizza sign go up in the heart of Leucadia a few months ago at the location formerly occupied by Umi. I thought, maybe we do need a pizza joint and coffee shop every several blocks along the coastal Encinitas corridor. My skepticism soon gave way to anticipation when I found out this was another Mario Guerra and Leucadia Co. project, the folks behind Valentina and Moto Deli, which you’ve heard me gush about several times in this column as they really are two of my favorite restaurants in the area. Both are unique in their own ways with styles all their own, so given all that, my anticipation turned more to excitement. Mario put it simply when I asked him what the motivation was for another pizza option in the area when he said: “I always wanted to open a pizza place. And although all the other options in Encinitas are great, we wanted to have a different experience by adding some fun appetizers including oysters and a great wine list.” Good answer, Mario and more about the oysters and wine later. And then, to top all that off, I found out that one of my favorite local restaurant people, Brian Earls, was opening the aptly named Corner Pizza as General Manager. If you have been to Fish 101 in Leucadia or
lick the plate david boylan Cardiff over the past several years, there is a good chance you’ve seen Brian running the show at either location. I got to know Brian from several Lick the Plate Fish 101 stories and he could pretty much quote my order every time I stopped in, especially my fondness for Albarino wine with oysters. That and he has been part of my socially distanced sunset crew at Beacon’s throughout the pandemic. I knew that if Brian was going to make a move it would be for something special and, well, as it turns out, Corner Pizza is all that and then some. First off, it has that simple, beachy elegance that both Valentina and Moto Deli possess, with a neighborhood feel put together by someone with an appreciation for quality, great food, and a sexy wine list. For now, seating is limited to a whole bunch of picnic tables outside with heaters so we can all go and enjoy pizza and wine or Mexican Coke on premise and be in compliance. The fact that pizza carries out so well made opening during these crazy times less risky than most restaurant ventures and their wine is available to go

by the bottle as well. So, about the pizza… and the soon to be available oysters. Mario described it as “a familiar pizza style that everyone is familiar with, good for kids and date night, nothing overly exotic, just good pizza.” He took that a step further by sourcing a Bakers Pride Y-602 gas deck oven that is the
classic workhorse of pizza ovens and perfect for what he is striving for. I went straight for the classic pepperoni that reminded me more of a New York pizza that I’m a big fan of. It worked for me hot and cold the next morning and it’s big enough for two normal appetites, though I will confess to over-indulg-

ing one evening and devouring the entire pie. And although Mario said “nothing exotic” I guess that word is relative as both he and Brian kept suggesting the Killer Bee with tomato sauce, mozzarella, gorgonzola, soppressata, pepperoni, rosemary and to top it off, chili honey.

rotation. There are 11 pizzas to choose from and some actually do lean toward the exotic side, but also plenty of the classic options that Mario mentioned. Love the name of the Sausage Fest, which includes fennel sausage and sweet Spanish piquillo peppers. Then there is the Forbidden Pizza, with pineapple, pork carnitas, pickled red onion and jalapeno, which will have to be explored. There is also a vegan option and plenty of other fun choices. A classic Caesar salad and a Padrino Salad with radicchio, chickpeas, red onions, mozzarella, salami, pepperoncini and cherry tomatoes offer something on the lighter side. And about those oysters! Yes, they will be available along with littleneck clams by the end of February or early March so stay tuned to their website for more details. If you’ve had oysters at Valentina, you know those will be done right, and I love the thought of an oyster and pizza night sitting outside on Coast Highway 101 in the coolest neighborhood ever. That’s just my opinion though. I had to leave room to shout out the wine list as it’s curated by Ricardo Zarate the sommelier who does such a fabulous job on the selection at Valentina. Corner Pizza is located at 1246 N. Coast Highway 101, Encinitas. More at www.corner-pizza.com or 760-331-3565.

Escondido officials approve Palomar Heights project By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — The Escondido City Council voted on Wednesday, Jan. 27 to move forward with the Palomar Heights project, which will build 510 residential units and up to 10,000 square feet of commercial/ office space on the site of the former Palomar Hospital downtown campus. The project was approved on a 3-2 vote, with councilmembers Mike Morasco, Tina Inscoe and Joe Garcia in favor, and Mayor Paul McNamara and Councilwoman Consuelo Martinez voting against. The site consists of approximately 13.84 acres of land at the eastern end of the Downtown area, on both sides of Valley Boulevard, and generally bounded by E. Valley Parkway to the north and E. Grand Avenue to the south, according to the staff report. The development will include 258 for-rent apartments, 90 senior apartments earmarked for residents 55 and up, as well as 162 forsale row homes and villas. The project’s commercial space will include a breakfast café, a retail farmer’s market, a collaborative workspace, a sky lounge bar and restaurant, a dog park and recreation amenities. Palomar Hospital, which has been at the site since 1953, will be demolished to accommodate the

project. The council received around 50 public comments from different groups and residents regarding the project, with many questioning why the new development does not include any affordable housing or low-income units. The Sierra Club North County Group has also been clear about their disapproval of the project, stating in a letter that “the
proposed Palomar Heights 510-unit townhome project is deficient for what the city needs. Sierra Club is opposed to this project because it is not dense enough and, given the perfect location for transit-oriented development, a larger project should be demanded– at least of 900-1,000 units with a significant percentage of affordable housing.” The Partnership for Downtown Escondido has

also stated that the project “discourages pedestrian activity, isolates neighborhoods, and stifles economic activity relied on by local businesses.” Councilmembers Morasco, Garcia and Inscoe agreed that a development like this could attract families to downtown and revitalize the area. Both Mayor McNamara and Councilmember Martinez criticized the plan for
lacking affordable housing. “This is not as good as it could be, it needs to be better. I don’t want my name associated with this,” said McNamara. The council also voted 3-2 to exempt the project from a requirement to join the city’s Community Facilities District, which was established last year to recover the costs of providing city services to new developments.
New state bill to focus on student mental health By Staff
REGION — Amid growing concern about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth mental health, Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel (D-Woodland Hills) announced, Jan. 26, the introduction of legislation that would enable educators in California to better identify and address student mental health issues. Jointly authored with Assemblyman Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach), Chair of the Assembly Education Committee, the measure — known as Assembly Bill (AB) 309 — would require the California Department of Education to create a model mental health referral protocol for use by schools across California. These protocols would provide guidance to help educators better identify students with mental health needs and quickly and efficiently connect them with appropriate services. “Like parents across California, I’m deeply concerned about the impact the pandemic has had on our kids’ mental health and emotional wellbeing,” Gabriel said. “California already was facing a student mental health crisis, and there are concerning signs that the situation has gotten worse as a result of the social isolation and disruption of the past year. This
important legislation will equip our teachers with better tools and resources so that they can help our students navigate these extremely challenging times. This will be especially important as we look to reopen our schools and bring students back into the classroom after months of distance learning.” Recent data suggests that the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly exacerbated mental health issues among school-aged youth. New data from the Centers for Disease Control show the proportion of emergency room visits related to mental health crises has increased dramatically for young children and adolescents since the start of the pandemic. Another recent CDC report found that 25 percent of respondents between the ages of 18 to 24 had contemplated suicide in the previous 30 days. And rising suicide rates and an increasing number of mental health emergencies have prompted officials in Las Vegas to consider opening schools more quickly than planned. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, one in five children exhibited signs of a mental health disorder, with California adolescents reporting even higher rates of depressive symptoms than the national average.
VISTA — San Diego Association of Governments leaders virtually cut the ribbon on a threemile segment of the Inland Rail Trail in North County San Diego today, part of a planned 21-mile bike and pedestrian route between Escondido and Oceanside. The section of the Inland Rail Trail is a dedicated multi-use path that runs along the Sprinter rail line in the North County Transit District right-of-way. With this section of the Inland Rail Trail complete, people can now bike, walk or roll along more than 10 continuous miles of pathway, between the Escondido Transit Center and Mar Vista Drive in Vista. The approximately $16.2 million newly constructed three-mile segment of the Inland Rail Trail was funded through a combination of federal, state and local sources, including TransNet, the regional, voter-approved half-cent sales tax for transportation improvement projects administered by SANDAG. SANDAG Chair and Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear joined Vista Mayor Judy Ritter, SANDAG Executive Director Hasan Ikhrata and San Diego County Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw during the virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony on SANDAG’s Facebook page. “Adding miles to bikeways is so important as people bike and walk more than ever during the pandemic,’’ Blakespear said. “We can make great strides as a community to reduce our impact on the environment and play a part in our region’s effort to meet our greenhouse gas emission reduction goals by offering residents healthy, safe, and viable transportation choices.’’ The latest completed phase includes a 2.5-mile section between Cherimoya Drive in the unincorporated county and Mar Vista Drive in Vista, and a half-mile section between North Drive and North Melrose Drive in Vista. These sections of the trail are intended to improve transportation connections to local destinations such as schools, parks and the Buena Creek Sprinter station. “The Inland Rail Trail connects the cities of Vista, Oceanside, San Marcos and Escondido and provides access to the entire Regional Bike Network, playing an exciting role in connecting the entire San Diego region,’’ Ritter said. “The trail gives residents more options to plan a trip, commute to work or just enjoy a day out on the town.’’

covenants and conditions of the Deed of Trust in that: THE PROPERTY CEASED TO BE THE PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE OF THE BORROWER(S) FOR A REASON OTHER THAN DEATH AND THE PROPERTY IS NOT THE PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE OF AT LEAST ONE OTHER BORROWER AND, AS A RESULT, ALL SUMS DUE UNDER THE NOTE HAVE BECOME DUE AND PAYABLE. This default can be resolved if at least one borrower takes possession of the property as his or her principal residence. In order to cure the default in this manner you must contact Quality, whose contact information is set forth herein. WHEREAS, by virtue of this default, the Secretary has declared the entire amount of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage to be immediately due and payable and sufficient payment has not been made as of the date of this notice; and WHEREAS, the total amount due as of 1/12/2021 is $368,864.25. WHEREAS, a Notice of Default and Foreclosure Sale was previously issued, that recorded on 10/30/2020 in SAN DIEGO County, CA as Instrument No. 2020-0676267, that set a sale for 12/16/2020 at 10:00 AM and the Foreclosure Commissioner hereby desires to continue said sale date as set forth below. NOW THEREFORE, pursuant to the powers vested in Quality Loan Service Corp. by the Single Family Mortgage Foreclosure Act of 1994, 12 U.S.C. 3751 et seq., by 24 CFR
Part 27 subpart B, and by the Secretary’s designation of Quality Loan Service Corp as Foreclosure Commissioner as indicated on the attached Foreclosure Commissioner Designation, notice is hereby given that the revised sale date is now set for 2/10/2021 at 10:00 AM local time, all real and personal property at or used in connection with the following described premises will be sold at public auction to the highest bidder: Commonly known as: 3503 TURQUOISE LN, OCEANSIDE, CA 92056 Assessor’s parcel number: 168271-61-00 Located in: City of OCEANSIDE , County of SAN DIEGO, CA .

THEREON AND SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND PROVISIONS OF THE DECLARATION OF COVENANTS, CONDITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS RECORDED FEBRUARY 27, 1986 AS FILE NO. 86-078027 OF OFFICIAL RECORDS. THIS EASEMENT IS APPURTENANT TO PARCEL ABOVE DESCRIBED. The sale will be held At the entrance to the East County Regional Center by the statue, located at 250 E. Main St., El Cajon, CA 92020 The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development will bid $372,926.41 There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his pro rata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling approximately $37,292.64 in the form of certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. A deposit need not accompany an oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $37,292.64 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence. This amount, like the bid deposits, must be delivered in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. If the Secretary is the highest bidder, he need not pay the bid amount in cash. The successful bidder will pay all conveyancing fees, all real estate and other taxes that are due on or after the delivery date of the remainder of the payment and and all other costs associated with the transfer of title. At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned to them. The Secretary may grant the winning bidder an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15-day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be paid in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the discretion of the HUD representative, offer the property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the trustor(s) or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The scheduled foreclosure sale shall be cancelled or adjourned if it is established, by documented written application of the mortgagor to the Foreclosure Commissioner not less than 3 days before the date of sale, or otherwise, that the default or defaults upon which the
foreclosure is based did not exist at the time of service of this notice of default and foreclosure sale, or all amounts due under the mortgage agreement are tendered to the Foreclosure Commissioner, in the form of a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Secretary of HUD, before public auction of the property is completed. To obtain a pre-sale reinstatement all defaults must be cured prior to the scheduled sale, plus all other amounts that would be due under the mortgage agreement if payments under the mortgage had not been accelerated, advertising costs and postage expenses incurred in giving notice, mileage by the most reasonable road distance for posting notices and for the Foreclosure Commissioner’s attendance at the sale, reasonable and customary costs incurred for title and lien record searches, the necessary out-ofpocket costs incurred by the Foreclosure Commissioner for recording documents, a commission for the Foreclosure Commissioner, and all other costs incurred in connection with the foreclosure prior to reinstatement. To obtain information regarding reinstating the loan by paying the sums that are delinquent you should contact the Foreclosure Commissioner, Quality Loan Service Corp., at the address or phone number listed below. Tender of payment by certified or cashier’s check or application for cancellation of the foreclosure sale shall be submitted to the address of the Foreclosure Commissioner provided below.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF KAREN M. DAVIES, aka KAREN MARLENE DAVIES and KAREN A. DAVIES Case# 37-2021-00003437-PRPL-CTL ROA 1 To all heirs, beneficiaries,
Davies, aka Karen Marlene Davies and Karen A. Davies. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Patricia A. Fister in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego. The Petition for Probate requests that Patricia A. Fister be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval.
