Kids for Peace celebrates 10 years of kindness By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Nearly 15 years ago two local women set out to change the city. Instead, they had a global impact when they launched Kids for Peace, the Carlsbad-based nonprofit committed to bringing peace, happiness and gratitude to children across the globe. And now, Kids for Peace is gearing up for its 10th annual Great Kindness Challenge, one headed for the record books, said co-founder Jill McManigal. Dubbed “Linked by Love” and part of the “Kindness Unites” campaign, Kids for Peace is receiving links of recycled or reused paper to connect into a chain covering 110 miles. The Great Kindness Challenge runs from Jan. 25 through Jan. 29. “We always want to take a positive approach,”

McManigal said. “We came ing on what we don’t want, up with the idea of having we focus on what we do kids take action and spread want.” kindness. Instead of focusWhen McManigal and
Danielle Gram created the concept for Kids for Peace in 2006, their goal was to focus on local children and showcasing their acts of kindness. In their first year, the nonprofit started in three Carlsbad elementary schools — Jefferson, Hope and Kelly. The reaction was so overwhelming that by the second year, the organization expanded to more than 260 schools nationwide. Now, Kids for Peace reaches more than 15 million children in 148 chapters across 121 countries. But 10 years ago, McManigal and her team came up with the Great Kindness Challenge, which promotes a weeklong event with a 50-point checklist of acts of kindness. The challenge encourages youngsters to incorporate kindness TURN TO KIDS FOR PEACE ON A8

THANK YOU CARLSBAD! It’s great to be back!
New Year’s Resolutions are a part of life. We all start the year with great intentions, but sometimes we need a helping hand to turn those intentions into actual habits. The small businesses in Carlsbad Village can help you stay on track. Here are three ideas to get you thinking. EXERCISE. Is it time to finally begin a total mind-body workout that burns calories, tones muscles, strengthens, and rejuvenates? Carlsbad Village is home to several amazing yoga studios. Consider the Carlsbad Village Yoga Coop who has classes outdoors, or the Carlsbad Village Athletic Club who holds classes on the beach. Let them get you started on the right track to make this your best year ever. FAMILY TIME. With seven miles of coastline in Carlsbad, with access from any number of places in Carlsbad Village, the beach is calling. Grab a picnic and a blanket and start creating memories at the beach. If your family prefers being on the move, consider renting bikes from Pedego Electric Bikes and tour the coast together. Or visit the iconic Carlsbad Pipelines for some family-style surf sport inspiration. MUSIC. Looking to finally learn to play the piano, violin, or guitar? Or considering a new instrument? The family-owned and operated Carlsbad Village Music is your one-stop-shop for new instruments, lessons, and musical creativity. In person lessons and virtual lessons are available for all ages. And while you are enjoying downtown Carlsbad shopping the after-holiday sales, or grabbing takeout from one of the many incredible restaurants, don’t forget what an incredible impact you are making on the small businesses that call Carlsbad Village home. This past year has been, for many business owners, the most difficult year in their history. As the community comes together and continues to support the solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, and familyowned and operated businesses, they will continue to see hope for a better year ahead. Thanks to your support, downtown Carlsbad Village will continue to thrive and will rebuild itself to be stronger and better than ever before in 2021.

Regional stay-at-home order extended as COVID-19 hits hospitals By City News Service
REGION — As expected, a regional stay-at-home order in effect across Southern California due to surging COVID-19 hospitalizations was formally extended today, continuing a ban on all gatherings of people from different households and in-person dining and setting strict capacity limits at many businesses. The state’s regional order, which covers an 11-county Southern California area, took effect at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 6 and was set to expire Monday. But with the region's intensive-care unit capacity at hospitals still officially listed at 0%, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday the order was all but certain to be extended. The state’s Health and Human Services Secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly, made it official Tuesday, saying incoming COVID-19 patients are expected to continue exceeding ICU capacity in the region over the next four weeks. The order was not extended for any specific timeframe. Ghaly said the four-week projections are evaluated daily, and the region can emerge from the stay-at-home order whenever the projection indicates a region’s ICU capacity will rise above 15%. The four-week projections are based on four factors: current ICU capacity, the region’s seven-day average daily new case rate, the transmission rate and the rate of ICU admissions. With the Southern California region’s current ICU capacity is still listed at 0% — and health officials anticipating case numbers and hospitalizations to rise throughout January based on gatherings that likely occurred for Christmas and will again for New Year’s Eve despite warnings — the region is expected to remain under the order for weeks to come. “We should expect that the hospitals that are under duress, that are in crisis already, will continue to see a high number of patients knocking on the door asking for care. Ambulances that still need to find a place to drop off a patient so they can get back in the field to support other patients who need care,” Ghaly said. “... All of those trends tell me and give me continued concern that we need to continue to work to prepare for (the) next holiday surge of cases into the early part of next year, and that likely ... in the middle of January we will see a significant higher number of cases than we have today of individuals with COVID who need hospital-level care.” In anticipation of the state’s action, Los Angeles County on Sunday night extended its local stay-at-home order, which essentially mirrors the state’s restrictions. The state also extended the stay-at-home order

County reports 2,532 new COVID-19 infections By City News Service
REGION — San Diego County public health officials reported 2,532 new COVID-19 infections and 31 additional deaths due to the illness Tuesday, as the state extended regional stay-at-home orders. The new cases marked the 29th consecutive day with more than 1,000 new infections, and the 20th overall day with more than 2,000 new cases. The 3,000 mark has been crossed five times. The state’s regional order, which covers an 11-county Southern California area, took effect at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 6 and was set to expire Monday. But with the region’s intensive-care unit capacity at hospitals still officially listed at 0%, the order was extended indefinitely. The state’s Health and Human Services Secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly, said four-week projections indicate incoming COVID-19 patients are expected to continue exceeding ICU capacity in the region. Ghaly said the four-week projections are evaluated daily, and the region can emerge from the stay-at-home order whenever the projection indicates a region’s ICU capacity will rise above 15%. The four-week projections are based on for the San Joaquin Valley. Four of the five regions carved out by the state are under stay-at-home orders, covering 98% of the state’s population. Only far northern California is not under a stay-at-home order. The Southern California region covers Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, Imperial, Inyo, Mono, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara
four factors: current ICU capacity, the region’s seven-day average daily new case rate, the transmission rate and the rate of ICU admissions. The region is expected to remain under the order for weeks to come, as health officials anticipate case numbers and hospitalizations will keep rising throughout January based on gatherings that likely occurred for Christmas and will again for New Year’s Eve despite warnings. The state also extended the stay-at-home order for the San Joaquin Valley. Four of the five regions carved out by the state are under stayat-home orders, covering 98% of the state’s population. Only far northern California is not under a stay-at-home order. The 2,532 cases reported by San Diego County on Tuesday crossed the 150,000 cumulative cases milestone. The county’s totals now measure 150,064 cases and 1,435 deaths. Another 44 people with coronavirus were hospitalized Tuesday and 11 sent to ICUs. The 1,562 people hospitalized from the virus is a record, while the 388 in ICUs is the second-most after only Monday’s reported 393. The county is reporting 19% of its existing ICU beds as available, and Ventura counties. Most broadly, the order bars gatherings of people from different households. Under the order, the following businesses/recreational facilities were forced to close: — indoor recreational facilities; — hair salons and barbershops; — personal care services;
but San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said last week that many of those beds lack staffing. The real number of available, staffed beds is likely much lower. Several hospitals and health care groups in the region have applied for ratio waivers — effectively allowing medical staff to take on a heavier patient burden. COVID-19 patients make up a little less than two-thirds of all ICU patients in the area, with just 228 non-COVID-19 patients compared to the 388 coronavirus patients in the ICU. The county has reported a 130% increase in COVID-19-related hospitalizations in the past 30 days and a 121% increase in ICU patients in the same time period. Of 16,944 tests reported Monday, 15% returned positive, bringing the 14-day average down to 10.8%. Sunday saw a record positivity rate of 27%. Three new community outbreaks were confirmed Tuesday — 57 have been confirmed in the last seven days with 233 cases associated with those outbreaks. A community setting outbreak is defined as three or more COVID-19 cases in a setting and in people of different households over the past 14 days. — museums, zoos, and aquariums; — movie theaters; — wineries; — bars, breweries and distilleries; — family entertainment centers; — cardrooms and satellite wagering; — limited services; — live audience sports, — amusement parks. Schools with waivers
can remain open, along with “critical infrastructure” and retail stores, which will be limited to 20% of capacity. Restaurants are restricted to takeout and delivery service only. Hotels are allowed to open “for critical infrastructure support only,” while churches would be restricted to outdoor only services. Entertainment production — including professional sports — can continue without live audiences. The order was triggered in each area when the region’s ICU bed availability dropped below 15%. In some counties, the official ICU bed availability is 0%. That percentage does not mean that there aren’t any ICU beds available, since the state adjusts the number based on the ratio of COVID-19 patients being housed in the units. Newsom noted Monday that COVID-19 hospital admissions have begun to plateau across much of the state — except in Southern California, with Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties continuing to be the hardest hit. Los Angeles County has rapidly become the epicenter of the pandemic in the state, with the state reporting more than 7,400 COVID-19 patients in L.A. County hospitals as of Tuesday, including nearly 1,500 in intensive-care unit beds. Newsom said 96% of Los Angeles County hospitals diverted ambulances to other facilities at some point over the weekend due to overcrowding in emergency rooms — up from a normal average of 33% of hospitals going on diversion. According to Newsom, county hospitals on average spent 16 hours on diversion over the weekend, unable to find space for emergency patients. Ghaly said hospitals are doing the best they can under trying circumstances, and while some Southern California medical centers have begun taking steps that might be considered part of “crisis care,” none have fully entered that mode and been forced to make decisions such as rationing equipment like ventilators. Ghaly again preached compliance with health orders such as staying at home
as much as possible, wearing a face covering and practicing social distancing. “Much of what we’re dealing with is avoidable,” he said. “Much of what we’re seeing can be stopped if we collectively make decisions to stop it.” Newsom on Monday had harsh words for counties and county officials who continue to “thumb your nose” at health orders. He singled out Riverside County, where Sheriff Chad Bianco has publicly criticized Newsom and said his agency would not be “blackmailed” into becoming an enforcement arm of state health officials. Newsom has said repeatedly that counties that don’t adhere to health restrictions would lose state funding. “We’re in the midst of a pandemic,” Newsom said. “I don’t know what more evidence you need, particularly, as highlighted, Riverside County is experiencing what they’re experiencing in ICUs and hospitals and lives lost. I mean, what more evidence do you need that trying to enforce good behavior will actually save lives? It’s a noble and right thing to do. “To dismiss as many have in the past and some of the same folks ... some still holding onto this as a hoax or face coverings don't matter. ...They’re not helping. They’re not advancing that cause, and so we will be assertive as we have been, we will be aggressive, as we have been.” Bianco, in a video message posted online earlier this month, called state health mandates “flat-out ridiculous,” while calling Newsom’s stances hypocritical in light of his criticism of the federal government for withholding funds from states, and following Newsom’s well-publicized attendance at a dinner party in spite of his own regulations against such gatherings. Bianco told residents in his message to wear a mask and practice social distancing, but said, “While the governor’s office and the state has threatened action against violators, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will not be blackmailed, bullied or used as muscle against Riverside County residents in the enforcement of the governor’s orders.”

A price when scofflaws don’t enforce the law
Letters to the Editor
Letter from a disappointed father
embers of the Board and Superintendent Haley: To say I am disappointed in your failure to lead would be paying you too high a compliment. For nine months, you have stumbled, backtracked and failed to develop and follow through on a coherent plan that would get our kids back on campus. Where are we now? Board members backtracking votes because they are concerned about being “uninvited to events?” The teachers union’s tail wagging the dog by threatening to sue because they don’t like a plan? And the board acquiescing to them?
ney said the district met the definition of opening. Why spend taxpayer dollars for an attorney if you don’t follow their guidance? My job is working as a risk manager for businesses. I start my meetings with the ice breaker of stating
I’m gutted that the board’s latest decision has again forced our kids to continue to be curled up in their darkened rooms.” Dr. Wilma Wooten’s letter to the board didn’t say you couldn’t open. It cautioned that opening required explaining in detail the district’s plan to meet the state and county requirements. You should do as others have done and provide this plan to the county and stand by it!! The board’s own attor-
the safest way to operate is to turn off all the lights, lock the doors, unplug all the computers & phones, and curl up in a fetal position in the middle of the darkened room. This will greatly reduce risk, but clearly my clients would fail. After we laugh at the ridiculousness of this “plan,” we then discuss
risks they face and create real plans and processes to lessen the prospect, but not eliminate, those risks. This allows for the greatest chance of success. I’m gutted that the board’s latest decision has again forced our kids to continue to be curled up in their darkened rooms. This deepens the hole the board has placed them in as compared to the open private and public schools who have had the courage to create and enact plans that bring the kids back on campus. If your goal is to create a plan that pleases 100% of all constituents and assures 100% elimination of COVID-19 transmission, then I would suggest you resign your board seat immediately. Kids belong in school on campus. You’ve had nine months to figure out how to make this happen. Sadly, I have zero confidence this will happen until fall 2021 when the virus is behind us and we are then trying to reverse the mental health and social burdens due to 18 months of unnecessary solitary confinement. Michael Allman was the only member yesterday who deserves thanks for attempting to lead. For the rest, lessons in creating a feasible plan, and then having the courage and leadership to enact the plan are sorely lacking. Mike Tanghe is a Del Mar resident and the disappointed father of a 7th grader at Earl Warren Middle School.
he list of California law enforcement agencies refusing to enforce current stayat-home, crowd-size and masking orders from Gov. Gavin Newsom and county health officials numbers at least two dozen, stretching into most parts of the state. Negative results of those scofflaw inactions were not obvious at first, while some counties let restaurants stay open despite closing orders, made no effort to prevent gatherings of more than 10 persons and assigned no sheriff’s deputies to enforce face masking. But now some nasty consequences are clear. Leaping out at readers of county-by-county statistics during Christmas Week was a direct correlation between lack of enforcement and coronavirus prevalence, infections and deaths. The numbers made it painfully obvious that inaction by law enforcement has cost plenty of lives. Lack of enforcement has also been counter-productive in achieving the scofflaws’ own proclaimed goals: allowing normalcy to return sooner rather than later. Larger caseloads inevitably mean longer shutdowns. The refusals to act are pure dereliction of duty in a state where the most common motto of law enforcement is “To protect and serve.” These folks are not doing much to help protect their constituents from the worst pandemic of the last century. Of the five California counties with the highest seven-day average COVID-19 cases in the week leading up to Christmas, just one has taken strong enforcement measures. That’s San Diego County, ranked fifth, where six deputies enforce anti-contagion measures full time. But sheriffs in the four
thomas d. elias
large counties with by far the biggest case numbers – Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside – all refuse. Those four counties also had the highest per-capita case rates among the state’s large counties, ranging from 4,110 per 100,000 persons in Orange County to 7,520 in San Bernardino County. Meanwhile, Santa Clara County, whose strict shutdown famously forced the San Francisco 49ers and several college sports teams to hit the road for weeks at a time, had a per capita caseload – 1,176 per 100,000 – far below those of the big scofflaw counties. Socio-economic differences can’t explain such huge gaps. Do the anti-contagion measures work? These statistics, reported by the counties themselves, suggest the answer is yes. This has not yet changed policy anyplace where law enforcement is commanded by people who enforce only the laws they like, even when measures they ignore can spare illness and lives. Even contracting the virus in early December did not move Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones to change his policies. When the state imposed its mask mandate, Jones said his deputies would not enforce it, calling violations “minor.” How minor are they when they cause infections and death? So far, Sheriffs Alex Villanueva, Don Barnes and Chad Bianco, who respectively enforce most laws in Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties, and San
Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner John McMahon continue refusing to enforce key state emergency edicts which have so far survived legal challenges. Villanueva said early on his deputies won’t “take part in enforcing stay at home orders…” Barnes called following the rules “a matter of personal responsibility, not a matter of law enforcement;” Bianco said he won’t be “blackmailed, bullied or used as muscle” by the governor or health officials. In all their counties, intensive care units were filled to capacity through most of December, but the sheriffs remained adamant. The only major anti-Covid law enforcement actions in those counties saw Los Angeles deputies break up two underground parties where dozens gathered and may have created “superspreader” events. It’s not only sheriffs refusing to enforce laws, but also some police chiefs. In Stockton, Ceres, Dixon, Roseville, Folsom and many other cities, chiefs say they prefer an “education” approach to violators of masking and social distancing rules. That matches the stance of the non-enforcing sheriffs in the state’s hardest-hit areas. There have been no consequences so far for any of the law enforcement people making these sometimes deadly decisions. That’s worth contemplating as many millions of Californians respect the rules, stay home and try to save their lives and those of people with whom they might otherwise associate. It’s also something voters should remember when the sheriffs involved come up for reelection in 2022 and 2024. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

Carlsbad Unified, teachers union agree to return date By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — A memorandum of understanding between the Carlsbad Unified School District and the Carlsbad Unified Teachers Association has set Jan. 25 as the day students will return to school. The announcement was posted on the district’s website on Dec. 23, but the Families for Opening Carlsbad Schools may file a lawsuit as the district and union had approved a Jan. 5 return date several months ago. The date, though, was pushed back after a Dec. 16 meeting of the CUSD Board of Trustees. The board must approve the MOU during its Jan. 20 meeting to allow schools to reopen for in-person learning. Previously, the CUTA had agreed to return on Jan. 5, but one reason for the delay is not every classroom has been or can be outfitted with the appropriate air filters, according to a discussion at the Dec. 16 meeting. “Staff and student safety and well-being have been our priority, and despite ever-changing condi-
tions and guidance we feel we’re in the best possible state of readiness for the next phase,” Rick Grove, assistant superintendent for personnel services said in a statement posted to the CUSD website. The MOU outlines safety and health protocols along with elementary schools returning to five days per week “when safe to do so” or no later than Jan. 25. Instructional schedules will reflect those of the elementary schedule with adjusted start and end times. Grove, Nicholas Levitt, the CUTA lead negotiator, and Lindsey Gordon, president of the CUTA, did not respond to interview requests before the deadline. Hybrid instruction will also be included on Jan. 25 for middle and high school students, where teachers who don’t feel safe or return to school being able to livestream their classes. Also, teachers will distribute videos to facilitate remote learning, but will not be required to do so after this school year. CUSD Superintendent Ben Churchill said during the Dec. 16 meeting
the county is not meeting eight triggers, also noting the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases. The county fell back into the purple tier several weeks ago, which was a sticking point for the union. As of Dec. 16, 49 students and 23 teachers tested positive for the coronavirus, while more than 1,200 were in isolation due to close contact. Churchill reported. Sixty-two percent of cases in the district have come since the week of Nov. 29, he said. “Even in the course of one week … the increase of positive cases,” Churchill added. “We’ve quarantined 209 students since the last time we met a week ago (Dec. 9).” Scott Davison, who helps lead the Families for Opening Carlsbad Schools, said the group is seriously considering filing a lawsuit to force the district to reopen the schools. He said the district, and union, are incorrectly interpreting Senate Bill 98. Davison said because the district and union agreed to the MOU doesn’t mean it will receive board approval.
“They are going to do whatever the union wants,” he said. “For them to send out this press release was very disingenuous. It was very clear the union and the district were working together before the meeting on Dec. 16 to come up with excuses for why we couldn’t open up on Dec. 5.” Davison said a majority of the classrooms in question were at Sage Creek High School and Aviara Oaks Middle School. Another reason, he said, was a concern for a shortage of substitute teachers. The district conducted a stress test in December showing CUSD came up nine substitutes short after a request for 35. “That was the main red flag for us,” Davison said. “They created a falsified substitute shortage to justify keeping the schools closed through January when there was actually no substitute shortage.” The group has also created a GoFundMe account for litigation expenses and to cover fees for qualified adults seeking to apply to a number of school districts as substitutes.
Man severely injured in head-on collision on Alicante Road By City News Service
CARLSBAD — A headon crash involving two SUVs today left a Carlsbad man hospitalized with serious injuries, police reported. Carlsbad Police Department Lt. Christie Calderwood said a Honda CR-V and a Dodge Durango collided at 12:41 p.m. on Alicante Road south of Tanzanite Drive. “A man driving the Honda CR-V was northbound on Alicante Road at a high rate of speed when he crossed over into the oncoming traffic lane and hit the Dodge Durango headon,” Calderwood said. The Honda driver, a
62-year-old Carlsbad man whose name was withheld, was transported to a local hospital with severe injuries, Calderwood said. The driver of the Durango, a 44-year-old Oceanside man, suffered minor injuries, Calderwood said. There were no passengers in either vehicle, according to police, who said it’s unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
Suspect sought in Solana Beach burglary SOLANA BEACH — Sheriff’s deputies searched Christmas Day for a suspect in a residential burglary in
the Highland Drive area of Solana Beach. The burglary was reported at 12:12 p.m. in the 700 block of Castro Street west of Interstate 5, according to Lt. Glen Twyman of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Communications Center. Twyman said deputies were searching for a suspect seen leaving a residence. The suspect was described as a white male, approximately 55 years of age, standing 5-feet-10 inches tall and weighing about 175 pounds. The suspect was wearing jeans, a blue shirt and a gray hat and was carrying a red backpack.
Anyone with information about the burglary or the suspect was urged to call the sheriff’s department at 858-565-5200.
Escondido homicide victim’s name released ESCONDIDO — Coroner’s officials today released the name of an Escondido homicide victim. Rafael Octavio Choza, 63, suffered multiple stab wounds on Dec. 22, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. Police arrested 52-year-old Shelley Reaves on suspicion of killing Choza in the Escondido apartment they shared, authorities said.
ENCINITAS – After weeks of public disagreement and controversy, San Dieguito Union High School District students, teachers and faculty will not return to campuses in January. The district's Board of Trustees voted on Monday afternoon to settle a lawsuit with the California Teachers Association and San Dieguito Faculty Association, rescinding a previously approved plan which invited all 13,000 students to return to campuses as early as January 26, 2021. Trustees Maureen “Mo” Muir, Melisse Mossy, Kristin Gibson and Katrina Young voted to ratify the settlement agreement, with newly-elected Mike Allman voting against it. As a consequence of the settlement, all five trustees voted to rescind the recently approved Dec. 15 “Expanded School Reopening” resolution and schools will maintain current distance learning and in-person small cohort instruction through Jan. 26. Following a Dec. 22 closed session, the board released the agenda for the Dec. 28 meeting on Christmas Eve, announcing the proposed settlement agreement. “I feel like something’s changed since we wrote this resolution, including a letter from Dr. Wooten… and what we’re seeing in terms of ICU room capacity,” Gibson said. “There is a valid argument that perhaps we should have always considered the (January) 27th rather than (January) 4th.” Allman voted against the settlement stating his concern is it sends the wrong “legal signal” to the teachers union.” “...Despite all of the accommodations… since the union doesn’t like it, just file a lawsuit,” Allman said. “I just don’t think it’s a good idea to reinforce that behavior.” As further agreed upon in the settlement, the district pledged to implement zero changes to general in-person instruction on its campuses until Jan. 27. Accordingly, any small cohort learning already taking place, including in-person instruction for English language learners, special education and assistance students, will continue as normal. The settlement does not, however, prevent the district from expanding small cohort instruction under the County Department of Public Health Cohort Guidance. Additionally, upon the ratification of the settlement, the San Dieguito Faculty Association agreed to cancel the previously scheduled Dec. 30 hearing requesting a temporary restraining or-
der against the district and will not seek future litigation based on claims outlined in the Dec. 18 lawsuit. However, there still remains the possibility of future litigation between the local teachers union and the school district. In the final minutes of the meeting, Superintendent Robert Haley was asked whether the school district was considered “open” to legally returning students to campus after Jan. 27 “There is clearly a disagreement at this time between the State of California Department of Public Health and the San Diego County Public Health,” Haley said. Kendall Swanson, attorney for the district, said “moving forward, the district’s position that its plans were legally compliant… obviously, there is a different legal position that [Faculty Association] has taken, which may eventually be litigated in court depending upon the next steps.” “My opinion is that the district is legally operating within the guidance that it received from our local county,” Swanson said. “Dr. Wilma Wooten did send a letter to the district [but] in that letter it did not state the district’s [Dec. 15] plan to reopen was a violation of the law.” However, Wooten, the county’s public health officer, expressed concerns with the original reopening plan. “I would be very concerned about returning to your proposed level of in-class instruction unless your staff is able to provide you with detailed information explaining how the requirements — the CDPH guidance and County Order — will be met,” Wooten said. More than 160 public comments were submitted during the meeting — both in support of and vehemently against — the agreement returning students to campuses after the New Year. Ginny Merrifield, president of the Parent Association of North County San Diego and who represents families in San Dieguito Union High, Carlsbad Unified, San Marcos Unified, Vista Unified and Oceanside Unified school districts, spoke to the Coast News after the meeting. “We strongly advocate for the board to have the courage to make that argument in court if the (San Dieguito Faculty Association) continues to press forward with litigation that prevents our children from the choice to attend school in person on January 27th, in spite of extraordinary accommodations being made for teachers with valid health concerns and child care issues,” Merrifield said.

Sexual battery suspect sought by Sheriff’s dept
O’side’s recreational cannabis push
By City News Service
VISTA — The San Diego County Sheriff's Department Wednesday circulated surveillance video of a man suspected in three incidents of inappropriately touching women in Vista and San Marcos. One sexual battery incident took place at 8:30 p.m. Dec. 18 at the Target store in the 1700 block of University Drive in Vista. Another took place around 4:30 p.m. Dec. 24 at the Michael's in the 1800 block of University Drive in Vista. The third occurred around 6:30 p.m. Dec. 24 at the Ralphs grocery store in the 300 block of South Twin Oaks Valley Road in San Marcos. In all incidents, the man was seen approaching the victims from behind, grab the woman’s shoulders and presses himself against the victim’s backside. When the startled women would turn to confront him, he claims to have confused them for friends. Surveillance video shows the man inappropriately touching himself underneath his clothing before and after the assaults. The victims described the suspect as an Asian man between 20 to 30 years old, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing between 140 to 150 pounds. He has a thin build with pale skin and dark straight hair. He was last seen wearing a gray baseball cap, light colored face mask, red zippered hoodie, gray T-shirt, gym shorts and running shoes. The suspect was seen leaving in a silver car. Anyone recognizing the man in the surveillance photo or video, is urged to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Callers can remain anonymous and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information that leads to a felony arrest.

Congress bans horse doping on race day By Staff
DEL MAR — In a victory for animal welfare, President Donald Trump signed into law on Dec. 27 the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act, concluding an eight-year campaign to end medication abuses leading to equestrian breakdowns, injuries and deaths on tracks across the nation. The act, which was included within a federal $900 billion year-end spending bill, promises to end the era of widespread doping of horses in Thoroughbred racing. The legislation includes a ban on race-day doping and the establishment of a uniform national standard for rules and regulations for U.S. horseracing overseen by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. “We don’t allow doping of athletes in cycling, baseball, and other professional sports,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of Animal Wellness Action. “It’s should be a no-brainer to
forbid this form of cheating and dangerous treatment of horses in American Thoroughbred racing, too.” The doping of American racehorses has been the subject of congressional attention over the past five years with hundreds of horses dying on racetracks weekly, and the indictment of 37 trainers and veterinarians in March of 2020. The bill has the support of Animal Wellness Action (AWA), the Animal Wellness Foundation (AWF), Horses for Life Foundation, the American Horse Protection Society, the Center for a Humane Economy, and key players throughout the horse racing industry, including all three Triple Crown racetracks. Churchill Downs, which runs the Kentucky Derby, is the most recent corporation to get on board. “The signing of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act is the greatest gain for horse protection in half a century, will put the
welfare of the horses at the center of the enterprise, and put the sport on a level playing field that aligns with the rest of the world,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action. The effort continues to enjoy the support of the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity (CHRI), which includes The Jockey Club, the Breeders Cup, Keeneland Racecourse, the New York Racing Association, The Stronach Group, the Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association, the Water Hay Oats Alliance, U.S. Harness Racing Alumni Association, and Animal Wellness Action. Key Provisions The law establishes an independent and self-regulatory nonprofit organization, Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA), to create uniform performance and safety standards; develop and implement both a horseracing anti-doping and medica-
tion control program; and a racetrack safety program. The horseracing industry, not the federal government, will be responsible for funding the organization. Furthermore, the organization will be required to create a set of uniform anti-doping rules, including lists of prohibited substances and methods, protocols around the administration of permitted substances and laboratory testing accreditation and protocols. Lastly, HISA will also create a racetrack safety program, consisting of a uniform set of training and racing safety standards and protocols to protect the health and safety of racehorses and jockeys. Standards include racetrack design and maintenance, oversight of human and equine injury reporting and prevention and procedures for undertaking investigations at racetrack and non-racetrack facilities related to safety violations.

OCEANSIDE — Deep in the city’s industrial area sits a brand new business that hopes to expand its customer base, improve public perception and give back to the community: a cannabis delivery service. MedLeaf Delivery is Oceanside’s first, and currently only, legal cannabis retail business. After a two-year licensing process, MedLeaf opened for business back in July. Because Oceanside’s cannabis regulations only allow for non-storefront delivery services, MedLeaf does not have an actual storefront where people can enter. Instead, MedLeaf employs drivers who take cannabis product right to customers’ doors with its own fleet of vehicles. Currently, Oceanside only allows licensed cannabis retailers to sell to the medicinal market. Cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and testing sectors have already successfully convinced City Council to open their business to the “adult use” recreational market, and MedLeaf leaders Gracie Morgan and Karen Tomlinson are hoping to do the same for retailers. Morgan, MedLeaf’s director of operations and business development, asked Council to consider opening cannabis retailers to recreational at the Dec. 16 council meeting. Council decided to stick with medicinal for now. At the same meeting, council approved a 4% tax for retailers after the passage of Measure M, which allowed the city to be able to tax its cannabis operations. The tax will go into effect Jan. 1. MedLeaf welcomed the tax with open arms as it provides a means for the business to give back to its community by generating revenue for the city. “If our tax dollars can be streamlined back to the community, that’s where we can make the bigger difference,” said Tomlinson, MedLeaf co-owner and director of community relations. Both Morgan and Tomlinson hope to see the cannabis tax revenue be used to combat the city’s homeless crisis as well as the cannabis black market. They believe that by restricting retailers access to the recreational market, the city is not only missing out on higher tax revenue but is also enabling conditions for the black market to thrive. “The things that the city is most worried about coming from us — lack of insurance and background checks, untested products, serving underage people — are actively happening at higher rates than we could have ever imagined just TURN TO CANNABIS ON A8

Local parent group pushes back against union’s lawsuit By Steve Puterski
ENCINITAS — A group of parents is pushing back against a pair of teachers unions' attempt to overturn San Dieguito Union High School District's recent decision allowing for a complete return to in-person instruction by late January. The Parent Association of North County released a statement criticizing the California Teachers Association and San Dieguito Faculty Association for filing a lawsuit requesting an injunction to specifically block reopening at Torrey Pines, Canyon Crest and La Costa Canyon high schools. Ginny Merrifield, executive director of the parent association, said the unions keep moving “the goalposts” despite the district incorporating a variety of safety measures and protective gear. Merrifield noted only 12 outbreaks have occurred at schools in San Diego County, according to data released by San Diego County. However, the school board held a special meeting on Dec. 28 to discuss the CTA lawsuit. Merrifield’s letter states the organization agrees with the board’s decision to resume in-person school on Jan. 27. “A very large percentage of the students in middle school and high school are not faring well under the distance learning model that was never intended to be a long-term solution,” Merrifield said. “We have a district who has put together a thoughtful plan that
has been vetted by doctors. Now, we need an administration and teacher’s union to collaborate and make it happen because our children are suffering.” The letter states how students are struggling mentally and academically due to virtual learning, while the unions are not respecting the choice of parents and students who wish to conduct in-person learning. According to the letter, parents are concerned about an increased risk of suicide while schools are distance-learning only. Merrifield said numerous medical doctors, including two who spoke to the board, relayed their expertise telling the board about the benefits of in-person learning while mitigating the risk of teachers and others transmitting the virus. Additionally, Merrifield cited the recently published statistic that schools have accounted for just 12 outbreaks across the county between March and November, as first reported by KPBS. Merrifield said teachers are valued and she, along with other parents, has called for the board to develop more passionate leave policies to support atrisk teachers. “We support teachers fully,” she added. “We’re not asking for the entire school to be open fully and forcing every teacher back into the classroom. We don’t support that, but we do, unequivocally, support a choice to back full time for students.”
REGION — In mid-December, Congress passed a bipartisan-supported bill primarily sponsored by Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) that aims to strengthen and expand services for veterans during the COVID-19 pandemic. Formally called the Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act, the bill allows the Department of Veteran Affairs to increase services for homeless veterans during the pandemic. According to Levin, the government should be doing more to help veterans get back on their feet, especially now in the middle of a pandemic. “This pandemic has been devastating for all Americans, including those who have served and sacrificed for our country,” Levin said in a statement. “I have seen veterans in my district lining up for food, heard from homeless and housing insecure veterans who couldn’t access desperately-needed resource, and met with veterans who struggled to start new careers despite services that should’ve been there for them.” Specifically, the bill reallocates grant funds to provide homeless veterans and veterans who participate in the Department of Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program with transportation, safety and survival assistance and communication equipment. The bill also allows the VA to work with other organizations to manage use of VA land for sheltering homeless veterans, provides more funds for transitional housing, and waives certain inspection and safety code requirements to make adjustments for social distancing and isolation needs. Additionally, the bill requires the VA to make sure the homeless veterans participating in one of its programs to have access to telehealth services. The bill also requires the VA to complete an analysis of its programs provid-

ing assistance to women veterans who are homeless or on the brink of homelessness. The VA must identify areas in which its programs are failing to properly meet the needs of women veterans and then submit a report with those findings to Congress. “We simply cannot allow our veterans to fall into homelessness,” Levin said during his remarks about the bill to Congress earlier in December. The bill includes several other bipartisan bills that Levin had previously introduced to the House, including one he introduced in 2019 along with Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-Texas) that would create a pilot program for off-base transition training. This particular provision aims to the transition process to civilian life easier for veterans and spouses by pro-
viding more time to access resources. The bill has been supported by several veterans organizations and leaders, including American Legion National Commander
James W. Oxford. “This package improves women’s healthcare at VA, protects the GI Bill, addresses toxic exposure issues ranging from Vietnam to today, and affords veterans much needed protections during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Oxford said in a statement. Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have passed the bill, which means its fate now rests in the hands of President Donald Trump to sign it into law. As of Dec. 28 Trump has yet to sign the bill, but its chances of becoming law are pretty good according to www. govtrack.us. “This legislation will make a real difference for veterans across the country,” Levin told Congress.

starting point each year and is a positive way to motivate the community. Additionally, the challenge has taken on a life of its own as children will
make their own checklists or add on to the one provided by Kids for Peace, Tubbs said. “The real joy is seeing the students and their fam-
ilies promoting a positive school culture by emphasizing kindness as a community theme that permeates throughout our campus,” he added. “The powerful impact of sharing love, warmth, compassion, and kindness with others leaves a lasting impression that really makes a difference.”

Originally MedLeaf was supposed to be the first cannabis delivery service in North County as Vista did not allow for cannabis delivery services, but that changed when the COVID-19 pandemic started. Vista’s retailers are now able to provide storefront and delivery services, putting them in direct competition with Oceanside. Fortunately for Oceanside cannabis retailers, the tax is currently only 4% compared to Vista’s 11% tax, though that could change in the future. Council and city staff aimed to not overburden its cannabis businesses with high tax rates at first, though Morgan wouldn’t mind a higher rate if it meant the adult use market was allowed. “You could set the tax at 10% if you give us adult use,” she said. MedLeaf — a veteran-owned, minority-owned and women-led business — also wants the city to recognize it as a legitimate business within the community. In October, MedLeaf held a ribbon cutting ceremony on the Oceanside Pier and invited council members to attend, but none of them showed up. “It was a historical moment and we didn’t have council support,” Morgan said. “That was really devastating.” MedLeaf aims to set a positive precedent for legal cannabis retailers in Oceanside. “We’re here and we’re doing it legally,” Tomlinson said.

because we don’t have the ability to deliver to those who want to go outside medicinal,” Morgan said. To purchase medicinal cannabis, patients must first acquire a doctor’s recommendation. Though MedLeaf offers to pay the upfront cost of getting a recommendation for patients, many don’t want to go that route. According to Morgan, such patients often feel bad about becoming medicinal patients when they believe their needs aren’t medicinal, so they prefer to buy adult use cannabis instead. She explained that because many recreational delivery businesses from San Diego, or farther like Santa Ana, will deliver to the area, and because the black market is available, Oceanside will fall short with what it can collect without adult use. Currently, Oceanside and Vista are the only two cities in North County that have legal cannabis retailers. Those two cities are the only two North County cities regulating cannabis businesses, while voters in Encinitas recently passed a measure allowing for cannabis operations. Although both Vista and Oceanside only allow retailers to sell to the medicinal cannabis market, each city regulates its retailers a bit differently. While Oceanside only allows for “non-storefront” delivery businesses, Vista has 11 storefronts.

Judge vacates Del Mar Heights elementary school rebuild plan By Dan Brendel
DEL MAR — A judge temporarily halted the Del Mar school district’s plan to rebuild an elementary school in a Dec. 22 ruling, ordering the district to reevaluate certain aspects of its project. Since 2019, the district has been planning to demolish and rebuild its 61-year-old Del Mar Heights K-6 campus, using Measure MM bonds approved in 2018. The district intends to construct one-story facilities and an expanded parking lot with a new drop-off/ pick-up lane, including on part of the existing playing field, reducing the field’s size. Under the auspices of Save the Field, a nonprofit corporation, a group of residents who oppose shrinking the field, sued the district last summer. Save the Field’s “purpose is to save the fields,” according to a June court filing. Though its complaints encompassed numerous other issues, including fire safety, vehicle emissions, light glare, habitat preservation, mitigating asbestos and other chemicals, stormwater outfall pipes, and construction and operational noise. Judge Joel Wohlfeil of the San Diego County Superior Court dismissed most of these complaints, including those relating to

field size. “The impact associated with community recreational use is insignificant,” Wohlfeil wrote in his ruling. “Although the rebuild project will result in changes, these changes
are not significant for purposes of a CEQA [California Environmental Quality Act] analysis. [Save the Field] fails to cite to any evidence within the record (e.g., comments from residents) demonstrating oth-
erwise.” “The small reduction in space will result in two smaller baseball fields, instead of one small and one larger field within the existing area,” Wohlfeil wrote. “However, the space
available for other activities would increase. For example, new pathways and redesigned open space would encourage fitness walking.” Additionally, “There is no demonstrated potential
for a significant impact related to wildfire and emergency/fire access,” he said. Wohlfeil sided with Save the Field on three counts. He agreed the district failed adequately to study how to mitigate potential (1) construction noise, (2) added traffic to an adjacent residential street, and (3) environmental impacts to the coastal habitat. “What the court is doing at this point is deferring,” he said at last week’s hearing. He instructed both sides’ attorneys to “focus in on the specific disputed provisions” and to submit alternative proposals for his further review. “I’m hopeful there are as few provisions as possible that you don’t agree upon,” he said. Both sides claimed some degree of vindication. “In finding that 10 out of 13 of the complaints were without merit, the decision demonstrates that the district and our consultants acted responsibly in the design,” according to a Dec. 22 statement. “Save The Field has believed all along that [the school district] violated the law by preparing an insufficient environmental document, shortcutting review of its project … without regard for the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA),” spokesman Rick Schloss said in a statement.

Interim police chief chosen By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — As the city continues its search for the next police chief, a police captain who has worked as an officer for 26 years has been chosen to temporarily hold the title. Former Police Chief Frank McCoy was originally supposed to retire in October but stuck around for a few extra months to help City Manager Deanna Lorson in the search for a replacement. McCoy officially retired on Dec. 28, and though a permanent chief has yet to be selected, Lorson appointed Police Capt. Manuel “Fred” Armijo as interim police chief while the search continues. “I’m fully confident in Captain Armijo’s ability to lead the department professionally and with the utmost integrity, transparency and commitment through this time of transition,” Lorson said in a statement. An Oceanside native, Armijo graduated from Oceanside High School and worked as a lifeguard for the city for four years before he joined the police department in 1994. Since then, Armijo climbed the ranks from sergeant to lieutenant and then finally police captain in 2011. As captain, Armijo directed support operations,
Capt. Manuel Armijo investigations and patrol divisions of the police department. Armijo graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy, the Senior Management Institute for Police and the Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Workforce Education and Development, and a Master of Arts degree in Organizational Leadership. Armijo also serves on the Board of Directors for the Oceanside Promise, a community partnership between more than 60 organizations dedicated to helping children and young adults reach their full potential. He is also a member of the North San Diego County NAACP. Armijo said he is honored to have been selected
as interim police chief and does “not take this responsibility lightly” despite its temporary status. “I very much appreciate all of the support and words of encouragement that I have received from within the Department, City government, and our community and look forward to serving as our City’s Interim Chief of Police,” Armijo told The Coast News via email. In the meantime, the city is conducting an open recruitment process, which allows applicants from outside of the city as well as internal candidates from the police department to apply. Recruitment for a police chief will close on Jan. 22, 2021. The firm Bob Murray & Associates was selected to manage the police chief recruitment process. The city bid farewell to Chief McCoy at the Dec. 16 Council meeting. He was the longest-serving chief in the department’s history, during which he focused on community-based policing and helped to lower the city’s overall crime rate. Since he first became chief in 2006, the city has seen a 33% reduction in overall crime and a 28% reduction in violent crime. In honor of McCoy, the city declared Dec. 16 “Frank McCoy Day.”
Encinitas declares climate emergency By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — Wrapping up a hectic year, the Encinitas City Council voted unanimously to declare a “climate emergency” within the city, in addition to further regulating group sober living homes, among other actions during the month of December. During the Dec. 16 meeting, the council unanimously passed an ordinance regulating group homes, including sober living facilities, received a staff report on the 2020 citywide pavement survey, as well as unanimously passed a proposed Climate Emergency Declaration. Presented by Commissioner Jim Wang, the Climate Emergency Declaration was written with city staff assistance to “assure consistency with the city’s Climate Action Plan as well as to provide emphasis on the ongoing implementation of the plan’s measures and strategies” presented in a Nov. 18 council meeting. Councilmember Joe Mosca applauded the Environmental Commission and local volunteer’s work in bringing the declaration to fruition. “It’s quite clear what we have to be doing. We have to call it what it is,” Mosca said. “We’re living in a moment when we’re quickly approaching devastating effects from climate change … and we don’t have to look any further than our own backyard in California.” While the declaration
T he C oast News
is largely symbolic and has no financial impact on the city, according to the council, its passing will reinforce a standard for operations within the city. The council also unanimously adopted the city’s first series of regulations for group homes and sober living facilities. The ordinance, discussed in length during the Nov. 18 meeting, establishes a permitting fee, land use and operating standards for group homes, as well as requires written notice of all property owners within 500 feet of the property. However, as heard in previous council discussions, sober living facility operators are opposed to the new ordinance, warning of pending litigation. During public comment, resident Robert Crawford asked, “why would the city approve this ordinance knowing the issue will demand very long litigation that will last several years and cost millions of dollars?” The city’s ordinance is based on a similar City of Coast Mesa ordinance, resulting in litigation in the federal courts ultimately upholding the city’s sober living home regulations. Furthermore, the staff presented the 2020 Citywide Pavement Survey, rating the overall condition of Encinitas’ road system. Ranking fourth highest in the region behind Carlsbad, Poway, and Vista, the city of Encinitas’ road sys-
tem received a Pavement Condition Index rating of 74 in the context of a statewide average of 64. The neighboring cities of Del Mar ranked at 73 and Solana Beach at 67. Mayor Catherine Blakespear supported increasing funding to the city’s annual Pavement Rehabilitation Projects stating, “this is truly one of the most important things we continue to fund. At $3 million dollars we can add a bit more money to and still manage the city’s budget effectively.” In recent weeks, the city’s roadside safety measures have been publicly questioned following the death of Dr. Jennings Worley, a cyclist killed in a traffic collision at the intersection of Leucadia Blvd. and Moonstone Court. According to Blakespear, the city is focused on changing pedestrian and cyclist safety measures. “We are restriping and repaving, focusing on biking and walking,” Blakespear said. “Of course, we can always be improving things and working towards the standards as they change, [being] physically protected bike lanes instead of just paint barriers.” Earlier last month, the City of Encinitas certified its election results, re-swearing in representatives Mayor Catherine Blakespear and Councilmembers Kellie Hinze of District 2, and newly appointed Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz of District 1.

The city is also creating opportunities for young adults of our community, who grew up here, to live here and stay here. Additionally, to comply with state law, the Encinitas City Council must adopt an updated Housing Element by April 15, 2021. Not having an approved plan could also jeopardize the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to obtain state grant funds available from the state. Attaining a legally compliant housing element is a part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Strategic Plan for FY 2019-2021. What do these cycles mean? State law requires updates to the Housing Element every eight years to ensure relevancy and accuracy. The time from one update to the next is called a housing â&#x20AC;&#x153;cycle.â&#x20AC;? All San Diego jurisdictions are in the fifth housing cycle that began in 2013 and will end in 2021. Since California passed the requirements for Housing Elements, there have been a total of six, eightyear cycles. Cycle 6 Housing Element updates addresses citiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; housing needs for the years 2021 through 2029. The city of Encinitas will have to submit a mid-cycle update to reflect progress towards implementing the sixth Cycle Housing Element by April 15, 2025, because the city did to not adopt the last cycle of the housing element within 120 days of April 15, 2013. The current Housing Element identified 15 sites to accommodate the very low- and low-cost units, which are the same sites identified in the update to the Housing Element. These sites were rezoned to accommodate multi-family housing in 2019. Even though these sites have been identified in the Housing Element, the city does not build the housing. That is the role of private developers. Each potential project owner will still need to submit an application, undergo review by city staff and come before City Planning Commission for review and approval. Housing Element next steps include: â&#x20AC;&#x201D; End of January 2021: Public comment period ends for draft Housing Element, however public comment will continued to be received throughout the adoption process. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Febr ua r y / M a rc h 2021: Staff and the consultant will complete the required responses to comments and bring forward an updated Housing Element draft for review by the Planning Commission and City Council. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; April 15, 2021: Deadline for adoption of the Housing Element by the City Council.

Learning how to ‘Produce Good’ in San Diego County
uring this time of giving and receiving it may seem presumptuous to ask to anyone to give more. But in a time when 1 in 5 San Diegans is food insecure, and 40% of all food in the United States goes to waste, a number of non-profit groups have taken it upon themselves to collect and distribute food in the San Diego area. With a plethora of fruit trees bearing fruit all year round, ProduceGood has taken on the task of collecting, donating and sharing thousands of pounds of citrus, avocadoes, apples, grapes and berries in the county. “By sourcing and harvesting the excess bounty in the county and creating access for those in need, we are solving the problem of hunger and waste in one sweet step,” said Nita Kurmins Gilson. “With the help of our volunteers, each week we connect the source of excess produce with the need for food. Our volunteers glean over 4000 pounds of produce per week, and are trained to harvest fruit from the orchards and then distribute the produce to local agencies. “With multiple events, 52 weeks a year, we have lots of opportunities to ProduceGood in San Diego County.” According to Wikipe-

dia, “gleaning is practiced by humanitarian groups which distribute the gleaned food to the poor and hungry. “In the Book of Deuteronomy, ‘farmers should leave the corners of their fields unharvested …to be left for widows, strangers and orphans.’ The process is hundreds of years old, but is regaining momentum today.” In addition to gleaning fruit from private home orchards, ProduceGood volunteers also visit three farmer’s markets each week and collect the produce that the farmers have not sold. The process is well orchestrated, so that each farmer receives a tax credit, and the food is taken imme-
diately to food banks in San Diego and North County. Farmers and orchard owners are protected by the Good Samaritans Act, which releases them from liability when donating food. The organization, which has now collected 240,000 pounds of food this year, has a small staff headed by Executive Director, Nina Kurmins Gilson; Financial Director, Alexandra White; Board President, Jerilyn White; and Community Orchard Coordinator, Kait Cole. The registered volunteers total 2100 and presently 400 farmers and growers are involved with the harvesting process. For more information

The Oceanside Crop Swap is a second group of food activists that is headed by Liz Rae and Susan George. The gardeners meet once a month to exchange excess fruit and vegetables from their home plots and distribute the remaining produce to the Lorado House at the Mission at San Luis Rey. “Recently, our group had a wonderful day giving of ourselves to help others. A neighbor needed help har-
vesting oranges and apples from the trees on her property. “We brought the fruit to the Lorado House that hosts a food bank two times a week. This should be a season of giving and helping others, and we hope others can look for opportunities to share random acts of kindness.” At the group meetings, the Crop Swap gardeners also exchange seeds, gardening supplies and gather for informal classes.

No equestrian shows at Horsepark in ’21 Fairgrounds to host shows, boarding
Carried away with cleanup
DEL MAR — The 22nd District Agricultural Association notified trainers and promoters earlier this week that it will pause equestrian activities, including horse shows and horse boarding, at Del Mar Horsepark in 2021. By moving horse shows from a 64-acre equestrian center to the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the 22nd DAA Board of Directors may further evaluate the cost of water quality requirements for equestrian activities at the park while also providing other community needs. The Horsepark facility is located at the corner of Via de la Valle and El Camino Real, nearly two miles east of the Fairgrounds. The environmentally sensitive area is adjacent to the San Dieguito River. The Fairgrounds, which recently underwent significant infrastructure upgrades, will continue to accommodate large-scale equestrian events, such as thoroughbred racing, horse shows and livestock exhibitions. The two-year, $15 mil-

lion improvement project included converting the Del Mar Racetrack infield water features into stormwater best management practices, such as a hold-
ing pond and a constructed wetlands-treatment area. As part of its $15 million investment, the 22nd DAA has constructed a state-of-the-art treatment
plant that is intended to remove residual pollutants from stormwater before entering nearby waterways in compliance with local state and federal regulations.
Staff is currently working with promoters that have historically held their shows at Horsepark to relocate them to the Fairgrounds.

sources on your property, reducing waste and keeping harmful pollutants from reaching nearby waterways,” said Jessica Toth, Solana Center executive director. Rain barrels can help reduce runoff from dirtying our beaches and waterways, collecting many different types of pollutants before reaching the ocean, rivers, lakes and lagoons. Just 1 inch of rain yields 600 gallons per every 1,000
square feet of roof space. Barrels are being offered at $55 per rain barrel (after rebate) on up to two rain barrels per household. For extra savings, the county is offering an additional $30 discount (limit two per household) for the first 200 rain barrels sold to residents in unincorporated areas. Residents can pick up a rain barrel in Encinitas any Thursday or Saturday weekly.
Rebates and discounts are being offered by San Diego County Water Authority and the County of San Diego. Pre-orders are required online at solanacenter.org/rain-barrels. After receiving pre-order confirmation, pick up rain barrel at Solana Center at 137 N. El Camino Real, during business hours Thursdays noon to 5 p.m. or Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each week.
here does the Lone Ranger take his trash? (to the tune of “William Tell’s Overture”) To the dump, to the dump, to the dump, dump, dump! That joke, while still one of my favorites, rarely gets a laugh from anyone under 30 these days. Today it requires the listener not only to know who the Lone Ranger was but also to be familiar with those famous bars of the Lone Ranger’s theme and the “William Tell Overture.” Nevertheless, I tell that joke to my unappreciative family every time I have to haul something over to the trash collection center in Carlsbad. My husband always laughs appreciatively. He laughs because it is me and not him who is schlepping away the latest broken-down appliance. I realized this week that I am way, way more familiar with that temporary trash stop than a genteel matron of my standing should be. OK, maybe genteel is a little strong, but I have my standards. I don’t know where they are right this minute, but I’m sure those standards are around here somewhere, buried under the junk I need to get rid of. In truth, I know why these tasks fall to me, rather than to the traditional choice of the man of this house.

Building murals in Oceanside bring much needed joy hit the road e’louise ondash
’ll begin 2021 with a confession: It took a pandemic for me to discover most of the three dozen murals that adorn an equal number of buildings in Oceanside. These varied artworks that have transformed bland expanses of stucco into explosive, colorful canvases. As an amateur critic, my knowledge of artists, style and backstories is limited, and it was difficult to find more than a smattering of information on the murals. Perhaps the combination of holidays and pandemic hampered my search, but I can say that I Iove some, dislike others, and find the remaining ones mystical and/or happily incomprehensible. It’s also true that these oversized works of art provoke emotion and conversation, add a layer of interest to the city’s neighborhoods, and mercifully transport viewers to a place where we can contemplate something other than the tragedies of 2020 and the challenges of 2021. I was somewhat familiar with a few of the murals in downtown Oceanside, but it is this mural map (https:// v isitoceanside.org / blog / oceanside-california-murals/) on the Visit Oceanside/California Welcome Center site that helped us locate the rest. Armed with this, our group of four took a late-morning walk to view the paintings within two of the three clusters located

roughly on either side of South Coast Highway. They stretch from just south of Neptune Way to just south of Vista Way. The three clusters are: • In the blocks contained by North Ditmar,
Mission, South Cleveland and Pier View Way. • Along Wisconsin Avenue between South Myers St. and South Coast Highway. • Along South Coast Highway from Cassidy

funded three of the most recently completed murals, and a fourth – a mosaic with six panels – is nearing completion. And in case you feel unschooled or intimidated by art – of any kind – don’t be.
The murals are there to bring joy and, although I’m sure no one thought about this at the time of their creation, to bring about the human connection that we so lack during this time of social distancing and isolation. Walking the streets of Oceanside in search of artistic treasure also fills the COVID bill in other ways: It brings us into the open air, it’s a socially-distancing activity, and the exercise benefits our mental and physical health. There are bonuses along the way, too, like the shops of Artist Alley and the marvelous “living wall” of succulents at the Mission Avenue end. Any trip to downtown Oceanside also must include a walk on the pier, which provides a whole different perspective of the shoreline. So, get out there, don’t forget your mask and happy new year.

Hansen: The man behind the name waterspot chris ahrens
first met Don Hansen nearly half a century ago while working in his factory, helping to make the hollow surfboards he was pioneering. Prior to that I had owned two hand-shaped Hansen’s that were perhaps shaped by Don himself. I have known him for a long time, but not well until recently. It’s been around three years since my neighbor at the time, Cardiffian Gary Stewart approached me to say he felt Don Hansen needed a biography and that I was the person to write it. Within a week I had banged out a proposal and placed in on Don’s doorstep. Soon afterward, he called to say he was interested in talking. We’ve been talking ever since, often in the office he maintains above his Encinitas sales floor, and once in his second home, in Big Sky, Montana. After many hours of taped interviews with Don, his friends and family, Hansen, The Adventures of a Surfer, Skydiver, Team Roper, Entrepreneur is nearly ready for publication. Like many of you I knew Don Hansen as little more than the founder of North County’s most enduring action sports store.
SMALL TALK CONTINUED FROM B1
and carry in firewood. My father is an absolute gentleman who would do all this and more for her whenever he was home, but the Air Force kept him at high altitudes on a regular basis, leaving such tasks to her. So she just did them. She never mentioned that she did them, in deference to the social expectations of the time. She certainly never bragged

I also knew he had been a respected surfer, a builder of fine surfboards, a skier and a skydiver. Beyond that Hansen was a nice man and a name on the side of the building I passed on my way to the surf. What I didn’t know then was the depth of his experience and that is nobody was less likely to develop a famous surf brand than Hansen. Name one other surfer who grew up 1,600 miles
from the nearest beach and went on to ride the North Shore’s biggest surf and carve out a name in the surfing world internationally. He was an 18-year-old college student when some of his fraternity brothers showed a surf film in the school’s auditorium. From there it was a mater of months before he hitch hiked to Coronado and began the long task of learning to surf and build surfboards.
about doing them. She just took care of business, and I was unintentionally programmed to follow suit. I didn’t realize I had absorbed this tiresome little trait until it was far too late to change. Given a crystal ball, I’m sure I would have opted to work much harder at being a spoiled-yet-patient princess. Then I would have found and married some man who was dying to wait on me hand and foot.
Oh, they’re out there. I was just too busy loading up the back of the truck to notice them. Which brings us to now, as I dragged the shredded mattress out of the garage. It had stood in there for weeks after the dog dug a hole in it, somewhat hidden by leftover lumber, beekeeping equipment and dusty boxes of seldom-used sporting goods. I didn’t even notice it anymore, it until we had to move it to get to something else. Once I got the bed in the van, it looked lonely. I decided that I needed to make worthwhile the 30-minute wait in line and the $35 fee for not leaving my trash by the side of

A few years later, in 1960, Don was in Hawaii with his young family, perfecting his board making craft and riding whatever sized surf Hawaii threw at him. He distinguished himself that year by making the cover of Surfer Magazine and being featured in several surf films. Then it was back to Southern California where he began building Hansen Surfboards in earnest, first building some of the best boards on the coast and later starting the action sport’s shop that helped put Encinitas on the map. Never one to settle down, once the shop was running smoothly, Don sought a new challenge. This one arrived at 10,000 feet when he began skydiving and eventually captained “Airfreight,” a tenman speed star skydiving team that would eventually break several world’s records. After moving to Montana in his mid 50s, skiing and steer roping attracted his interest. As a team roper he found success against men more than half his age. But winning was never the goal—freedom was and is. Hansen is a brilliant, compassionate man whose achievements must be read to be believed. You can do that in the spring of 2021 when his biography hits the shelf. He might not be around to sign your book, however. Knowing Don, he’ll probably be out, jumping into the deep end of his latest adventure. the road. When my family wasn’t looking, I began scouring the house and garage for things that needed to join the pile. I won’t admit to finding anything, but somehow I filled the space up nicely with items that will never be missed. For the environmentalists out there, believe that I do have pangs of conscience at contributing with such regularity to our throwaway society - I can only plead the bed was 30 years old, and recycled, as it had been my folks, and then mine. I hope that gets me off the hook. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who feels absolved by driving a 2007 Prius.

Most delicious Lick the Plate stories from the past year
his endeavor called Lick the Plate is a labor of love, one that keeps me writing and allows me to meet and tell the stories of so many talented folks in the areas of culinary, culture and music in North County San Diego. Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primarily a culinary feature, but like my radio show, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to expand outside that realm, including area businesses and musicians and telling their stories through their culinary preferences. Despite the scary and crazy year 2020 has been. I was able to find folks who are powering through this in their own creative ways. Here's a list of 25 stories from 2020, all of which were a pleasure for me to write. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start with the energetic youthful energy and delicious coffee from the Brazilianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at Wipeout Coffee which is some of the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had. Carte Blanch in Oceanside provided one of the more memorable meals I had in 2020. Also in Oceanside, with a style unique to Jessica and Davin Waite was their newish vegan venture The Plot. If I had someone cooking vegan food like this for me every night, I could be a vegan. Nothing new about the neighborhood gem called Just Peachy in Leucadia but after all these years I had not featured them in a column, and it was about time. Getting to know iconic local business owner Queen Eileen and having her local roots that go way back was a treat. Hey Eileen, I hope we are still on for Crab night at Captain Kenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when that starts up again! Moonage Food Co. and Tyler Mars brought some of the funk back to Leucadia in a style that is all his own. His combination of killer food, music and art in an open-air space has resonated with a lot of folks. I also rediscovered Lobster West and their amazing lobster rolls and chowder. I was educated by â&#x20AC;&#x153;the other David Boylanâ&#x20AC;? who is much smarter than me on permaculture and the benefits of using its principles for gardeners. I finally caught up with local musician John Bennett and had a blast hanging out recording an interview at Moonage Food Co. John, I do plan on taking you up on the invitation for your wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stroganoff you extended. Rosannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pasta Shop was another revisit, focusing on daughter Sara Martin who has taken over operations from her parents and

still serving up some of the best Italian food in town. It was a treat interviewing NBA legend, broadcaster, Deadhead, and high energy lover of life Bill Walton for both my show and column. The first words out of his mouth for the show were, â&#x20AC;&#x153;David, I LOVE to lick the plateâ&#x20AC;? in his booming voice. Love that guy. Being the first carryout order at the new Chinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Carlsbad was a fun experience after my interview with them on their long run and a new location in North County.Â The Chop Stop in Encinitas fulfilled my wish for a local joint that specializes in chopped salads that I consider to be the perfect lunch. Stumbling upon musician Sara Rogo playing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hallelujahâ&#x20AC;? by Leonard Cohen at one of her pop-up performances at Beaconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as the sun was setting was an experience Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget. Following up with her for an interview and column was fun as well. Discovering the splendid sandwiches at the downtown Encinitas Prager Brothers outpost was another high point in the year and added to the amazing sandwich options available in Encinitas. And that provides a perfect segue into the week I ate my way through the Moto Deli sandwich list and loved every one of their chef-crafted creations from chef Andy Halvorsen. I was lucky to be selected to preview and give my feedback on a manuscript called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Northern Harvestâ&#x20AC;? that profiled women in the culinary and farming world and helped get it published. That was a treat and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fabulous read. I learned about distilling sustainable spirits from the folks at Misadventure
& Co. in Vista who are utilizing food headed to the dumpster from local anti-food waste organizations to distill their vodka. Mr. Moto Pizza came to Encinitas with a serious contender for the best New York City-style slice in San Diegoâ&#x20AC;Śand a fabulous meatball sub. Switchboard in Oceanside was one of my favorite discoveries of 2020 with their take on Hawaiian influenced food. Another Oceanside delight was the return of

My conversation with Naomi Wentworth from The Compost Group gave me valuable insight into the importance of composting and how they make it easy for everyone. I wrapped up the year with a takeover column from a local business. This time it was Sanford Shapes,
a local skateboard company run by a group of college-age friends who are making some of the most beautiful boards Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen. So there you have it. Despite the tumultuous year, there were reasons to celebrate accomplishments and perseverance in the culinary, culture and music scenes in North County.
When January 1st comes our way, we feel a promise of better things for all of us. We have a fresh start; a new beginning; another chance. The new year is like a babe in swaddling clothes, looking out upon the world with wide and eager eyes. In many ways, the new year is a new beginning for each of us.
The new year is a time for contemplation and personal inventory. We are encouraged to make resolutions. To make the year, our life ~ yes, even the world ~ better! Planning our life and working toward our chosen goals is the foundation for success.
While we celebrate this new year, let us all resolve to become better people and make a positive difference in our world.

This beer has grapes in it? Cheers! North County
arl Strauss Brewing’s 12 Days holiday series — in which they release a unique seasonal holiday beer each year — has been running for 11 years, with one more to go. That’s a long time to commit to a bit. The 11th installment is called, "This One Goes to Eleven" Imperial Red Ale. It’s a style I’m partial too. I greedily accepted a sample to test drive, but when examining the rock n’ roll-themed label I noticed something unusual. This beer has wine grapes in it. Cabernet grapes to be exact, and my first thought as a lover of red ales was, “But why?” So I asked Paul Segura, the 20+ year veteran brewmaster at Karl Strauss. Cheers!: What was the inspiration for adding the cabernet grapes to this beer? Paul: We were inspired to make something very similar to my favorite all-time beer - our 21st An-niversary ale. That beer was a Belgian Strong Ale fermented with an old vine zinfandel varietal. Cheers!: How does adding the grapes impact the brewing process? Paul: The sugars from
the grapes — like sugars from barley and wheat — are fermentable. They contribute to a higher alcohol content as well as imparting color and flavors in the finished beer. Cheers!: Is the assumption that there will be a wine-like component or flavor profile in the beer that the cabernet grapes are supposed to produce? Paul: Absolutely! There is a deep ruby-like color as well as grape jam-like flavors and aromas, fol-lowed by a nice, slightly dry, French oak finish. Cheers!: What tasting advice would you have for someone drinking this beer for the first time? Paul: This will taste unlike any beer you’ve had before so keep an open mind as you enjoy it. Since this beer is over 9% ABV it can be “cellared” meaning stored in a cool place (ideally your refrigerator) to be drunk at a later date. However, it’s perfectly fine to go ahead and enjoy it right now alongside any food that you might pair with a robust red wine. From all the brewers here at Karl Strauss, we hope you share this beer with friends and family and wish you happy holidays! Help a service work inneed.

n our previous column, we unveiled the World’s Top Ten wines from Wine Spectator. Six countries were represented, the result of a blind tasting of over 11,000 wines. Rico and I keep our tasting to nearly 1,000 wines that are readily available at most supermarkets, wine shops and online. We are now pleased to present our BIG 10 best wines of the year. Unlike Spectator, they are not ranked but are listed alphabetically, equally excellent in flavor, body, value (the wine’s price comparison) and the “wow” factor. Our choices include four Cabernet Sauvignons, two Pinot Noirs, and one each of a Barbera. Brunello, Chianti Classico and a Red Blend. The five from my corner starts off with… Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Riserva, Tuscany Italy, 2016. $24. The Ricasoli family has produced wine in the heart of Tuscany since the 12th Century. The massive castle, on the highest point in the vineyard, once a French Nunnery, can be seen for miles. This Chianti displays a ruby red color deepening to garnet, with a rich and generous taste. Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2017. $25. High in the hills of Mt. Veeder in Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder vineyards grow highly concentrated grapes that fully express the unique characteristics of mountain-grown fruit. Enjoy the flavors of blackberry and cherry layered with cocoa, tobacco and cedar notes. mtveeder.com. Orin Swift Abstract Red Blend, Napa Valley, 2018. $34. Aromatics with gravity, this wine pulls you in with boldness on entry. Your palate will feel the richness of dark plum, black fig and hints of musk and rhubarb, all radiating from a mix of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. orinswift. com.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A hectic period begins to wind down. Take time to draw some deep breaths and relax before getting into your next project. A long-absent family member makes contact. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re eager to move forward with a new challenge that suddenly dropped in your lap. But you’d be wise to take this one step at a time to allow new developments to come through. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re almost ready to make a commitment. A lingering doubt or two, however, should be resolved before you move ahead. An associate could provide important answers. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Caution is still the watchword as you move closer toward a decision about a new situation. If you act too fast, you might miss some vital warning signs.

Let things fall into place before you act.

Or you might be setting up meetings with potential clients or employers. Whatever it is, good luck. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Partnerships — personal or professional — which began before the new year take on new importance. They also reveal some previously hidden risks. So be warned. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your associates are firmly on your side, and that persistent problem that has caused you to delay some activities should soon be resolved to your satisfaction. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Favorable changes continue to dominate, and you should be responding positively as they emerge. Someone wants to become more involved in what you’re doing. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A friend wants to share a secret that could answer some questions you’ve wondered about for a long time. Meanwhile, travel aspects continue to be strong. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Stay on your new course despite so-called well-meaning efforts to discourage you. Rely on your deep sense of self-awareness to guide you to do what’s right for you. YOU BORN THIS WEEK: You have the capacity to meet challenges that others might find overwhelming, and turn them into successful ventures. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
