Encinitas sets June as Pride Month
By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — After proclaiming the month of June as Pride Month in Encinitas, the City Council voted to unanimously adopt proposed amendments to the city’s small wireless facilities policy as well as approve a template master license agreement and fee for cellular facilities with infrastructure in the public rights of way. “We are reminded that this June we stand with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community in our own city, as they declare their own pride in who they are and who they love,” Blakespear said. “Many of the residents, students, employees and business owners within the city of Encinitas, who contribute greatly to the enrichment of our city are a part of the city LGBTQ community,” Blakespear said, proclaiming the month of June as LGBTQ Pride Month, “inviting everyone to respect, honor and celebrate our diverse community and to continue building a culture of inclusiveness and acceptance of the LGBTQ community.” The action Item on proposed amendments to the city’s small wireless facilities policy has been on City Council’s agendas continually since last summer. On August 21, 2019, the City Council established standards and procedures for small 5G wireless facilities. Following the adoption, the council directed city staff to hold a community-wide workshop to solicit input and answer public questions, attracting nearly 200 residents. On October 30, 2019, the council was presented with a resolution reflecting TURN TO PRIDE MONTH ON A12

Police release body camera footage of tasing incident By Caitlin Steinberg
CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad Police Department released body camera footage last weekend, along with an official timeline of an arrest in which two officers restrained and cited an unarmed black male for public intoxication and resisting arrest on Thursday evening, June 11. A cellphone video of the incident was released on June 12, which depicts two Carlsbad Police officers tase and arrest Marcel Cox-Harshaw, 27, of San Diego. The video was shared on social media and quickly garnered local attention. Speaking with the Coast News on June 13, Carlsbad Assistant Police Chief Mickey Williams provided further informa-

near the road, possibly unconscious.” Fire Department EMTs arrived several minutes before law enforcement to “keep the peace” and “to treat the person, making sure everyone stayed safe,” Williams said. However, Williams said the subject was not cooperative with EMTs upon their arrival. As shown on the body camera footage, the suspect raises his voice and appears to step closer to the responding EMTs. According to Williams, both the officers and firemen recognized symptoms of intoxication. “Ultimately, it was proven the subject’s [blood alcohol content] was nearly three times above the legal
limit,” Williams said. Officers reported the suspect repeatedly “clenched and unclenched his fists, [growing] extremely agitated.” “The man became aggressive towards the firemen, quickly closing in distance, getting within less than a foot of the face one of the firemen.” At that point, officers viewed the suspect in violation of 647 F of the California Penal Code, being “drunk in public to the extent where you’re a danger to yourself or others.” “The intent of the officers was to handcuff him, arrest him for being drunk in public and then allow him to detox and be TURN TO POLICE ON A14

Collmus to Carlsbad seniors take part in mobile celebration join Del Mar race season By Steve Puterski
DEL MAR — Larry Collmus, the voice of the Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup, will become the announcer at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club this summer, stepping in for long-time announcer Trevor Denman, track officials announced Wednesday. Collmus, with 35 years of race calling experience, will replace Denman for the summer season, after Denman recently told Del Mar officials that he and his wife Robin did not wish to travel away from their Minnesota farm in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Denman has been the racetrack’s caller for the past 36 years. “When Trevor told us of his situation, we naturally had to respect what he was feeling,” said Josh Rubinstein, Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s president and COO. “We immediately worked up a short list of possible replacements and Larry was the man we zeroed in on. Happily, he said he was available and would be delighted to call our meet. We’re very pleased to be able to have him be the guy in our booth when we’re off and running on July 10.” Collmus, 53, called his first race at the age of 18 at Bowie Race Course in Maryland and has manned the mic at various racetracks from California’s Golden Gate Fields to New York, with additional tours at such noteworthy racing venues as Gulfstream Park, Churchill Downs and Monmouth Park. Since 2011, the native of Baltimore has taken on the role of race caller for the Triple Crown series and the championship Breeders’ Cup races on NBC. “It is an unexpected but welcome thrill to be joining the great team at Del Mar this summer,” Collmus said. — City News Service
CARLSBAD — Hundreds of high school seniors donned their caps and gowns as teachers and staff at Carlsbad and Sage Creek high schools gave them a drive-through send-off. The schools, along with the Carlsbad Unified School District, arranged for students and parents to drive through the parking lots while music blasted, teachers danced and waved signs to the graduates on the last day of school. The events were organized due to uncertainty from the COVID-19 pandemic, although the district has scheduled modified in-person graduation ceremonies at each school on July 23. “My parents decorated our car and I sat outside the window,” said Sage Creek senior Emma Delker, who will attend Grand Canyon University in Phoenix in the fall. “It was emotional because I got to see people from school I hadn’t seen … and the teachers. It was really kind of heartwarming.” The students, meanwhile, took center stage by sitting on hoods, car doors, or in the backs of trucks

ENCINITAS — Voting 6-1 in favor, the city’s Environmental Commission on June 11 passed a recommendation to City Council to declare a “climate emergency.” The Climate Emergency Declaration, authored by Commission Vice Chair James Wang, recognizes the “egregious dangers imposed by climate change,” recommending the City Council pass a resolution declaring a Climate Emergency. During the previous meeting on May 14, the commission rejected the recommendation in a 4-3 split, opting to return the report to subcommittee for refining. The report presented on June 11 included changes discussed during the May 14 meeting. John Eldon, the only commissioner to vote against
the recommendation, questioned the purpose of the declaration itself. “I still see [the report] as a blank check to City Council. Sorry, I’m not going to approve it,” Eldon said. “I’ve seen the term ‘crisis’ or ‘emergency’ too many times, bandied about as an excuse for excessive government power.” District 2 City Council candidate Susan Turney once again expressed concerns with the report, stating “the city will declare an emergency, provide zero transparency as to what that means in practice and use its new emergency designation to grant itself the power to bypass code and city policies” without any public input. Turney sent a similar letter to the City Council, which was read aloud at the meeting on June 10.
Wang, the author of the report, addressed Eldon’s and Turney’s concerns. “We are recommending that we make a statement,” Wang said of the Environmental Commission. “The Council sets the policy. It’s my understanding that the [commission] is not developing new procedures, but just prioritizing climate action in everything we do.” “We are not declaring an emergency. We don’t have that ability. We are an advisory commission, so [this report] will go before the council to declare the cmergency. That is the opportunity for the public to speak to City Council about it.” “It is an opportunity for our city to publicly state and recognize that this issue is urgent. I don’t see this extending anybody’s powers, authority, or costing anything,” Wang said.

said it was tough to realize March 13 was the last day of school since the thought then was that students would be able to return to campus. Lupica said it has been difficult not to see her classmates and teachers for the past three months. Prom and senior class trips were canceled, along with spring sports and other extracurricular activities. “It was kind of rough because none of us knew it was our last day,” Delker said. “It was a kind of weird vibe at school.” As for the fall, both Delker and Lupica plan on enrolling at their respective campuses. Delker said GCU will offer classes in person and online, although those plans may change as Arizona has seen a new surge of COVID-19 cases over the past several weeks. For Lupica, she will move into her dorm room, but classes will be offered online. She said there may be in-person classes once per week, but Cal Poly SLO is allowing students to do online classes only. “Cal Poly is doing a hybrid,” Lupica said. “I still get to go to campus, but my classes will be online.”

My heart attack story
America’s other Independence Day
By Bhella Bell
hen Union General Gordon Granger marched into Galveston, Texas to announce the end of the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed and already in effect for 6 months ... AND TWO YEARS! Backed by at least 1,200 blue coats, General Granger stalked through Galveston alerting the newly freed people of their victory mostly by first informing plantation owners that their human “property” no longer belonged to them. Granger read the now famous “General Orders
The following December marked the official end of slavery when the 13th Amendment was ratified officially abolishing slavery in the United States of America. Since the national liberation of slaves, many African Americans relocated from the likes of the southern Union states moving toward the outer reaches of the nation as the country expanded. Although Texas was the last state to release its hold on slavery, it was the first state to acknowledge the eventual Emancipation with a day in its honor in 1980. Initially, Juneteenth was celebrated primarily
Juneteenth was meant as a time to focus on self-development, prayer, communing with family, and a remembrance of achievements...” No. 3,” entitling all former slaves to the same rights and respect as their former slaveowners. Some of the former slaves were elated, parading their freedom across the plains, northbound. Others, just as jubilant, chose instead to seek out family members and remain local. A few of them were awestruck and loitered about while still more, toiled the soil, cotton and cows the entire season without the awareness that they were free. By most accounts, IT WAS A NEW DAY! “Juneteenth” (the portmanteau of “June” — the month the slaves were freed in Texas — and “teenth” — noting the nineteenth day of the month) became a day of celebration among African Americans in the United States.
by America’s more melanated population with pilgrimages back to Texas starting in 1866 one year after the slaves were told they were freed (not to be confused with the dates they were actually set free). Despite the pushback by their Caucasian counterparts to regulate, rather, prevent the free men and women from public gatherings, events were held in locations of donated land or nearby churches. Eventually, groups were able to raise enough funds to purchase their own land for the fêtes. Parties were hosted by the newly independent people as well as their descendants. Much of this revelry involved education about the way the independence was won, (involving many
troops and help from the former slaves, the free Northerners and allies) information about the legacies of individuals from the African diaspora and food! There was always an abundance of delicious food. Barbeque grilling and baseball were very popular activities. The early years involved shows of lavish clothing worn as a backhand to the rags and rugged garbs strewn together during slavery. Parades, rodeos and musical acts rounded out the soirées for several decades. Juneteenth was meant as a time to focus on self-development, prayer, communing with family, and a remembrance of achievements prior to Juneteenth and thereafter. Unfortunately, most descendants ceased the yearly celebration after a few generations. It was nearly 100 years before the communities revitalized the historical event. In 1968, with the “Poor Man’s March on Washington,” what was originally known as “Jubilee Day”took form again. Now, 45 states acknowledge Juneteenth. Distinguished institutions such as the Smithsonian and the Henry Ford Museum sponsor Juneteenth-centered functions in memorial of the historic date. Juneteenth has yet to become a federal holiday but interest is gaining to grant America's most disrespected people their very own independence day. For more information on Juneteenth, updates and events are located on Juneteenth.com, the official website of Juneteenth.

bout every 40 seconds, someone has a heart attack in the U.S. Those seconds that follow a heart attack matter greatly and the action that you take. As a healthy 65-year old, I was one of those statistics suffering a “widow-maker” heart attack. Grateful to have survived, I am determined to help share the information that saved my life, in hopes it can help educate and save others. On April 11, 2020, I was enjoying a Saturday morning at home. I decided to organize a few details for the upcoming week in my home office. Suddenly, excruciating pain hit me in my chest and began radiating down my left arm. I went to my wife, Colleen in the nearby family room while profusely sweating. Within seconds, I was drenched in sweat. Well-versed in reading physician’s studies, Colleen believed I could be having a heart attack and immediately proceeded to get me two (325mg) aspirin. She instructed me to sit back and chew before swallowing the aspirin. Meanwhile, our son, Bryan got the car ready to drive me to Scripps Encinitas which was only 4 minutes away, and he made the drive in a swift 3 minutes. Upon arriving at the hospital, the skilled Scripps team confirmed I was having a massive heart attack. They immediately went to work giving me additional baby aspirin that reduced the pain and prepared me for the cath
After what seemed like traversing several hallways and saying many, many prayers, we arrived for a procedure to repair my heart. In the hour that followed, the team discovered the “widow-maker” artery was 99.6% plugged and received a stent. Two other arteries received an additional two stents. I later learned my heart stopped during the procedure, which I recalled a jolt but no pain. I survived the procedure thanks to the quick action of his family, the skilled Scripps Encinitas staff and Cardiology team, and the help of God. The following morning, as the team of doctors monitored my recovery, I was told, “You realize, your wife saved your life by inserting the aspirin and also getting you here so quickly.” Later that day, the cardiologist and technician performed an echocardiogram on my heart and grew silent for over a minute. He then looked at me and stated, “This is remarkable, I cannot detect any heart damage! Amazing!” He indicated the aspirin and quick trip
to the hospital saved me. I added, “God was a major factor.” Heart attacks can happen to anyone, those with or without a pre-existing condition. While I was never diagnosed with a heart condition, there is heart disease within my broader family. I am grateful my family knew that aspirin helps inhibit platelets, the tiny blood cells that trigger blood clotting after plaque ruptures during a heart attack. Using aspirin isn’t an old wives’ tale — it is a proven life-saving tactic. So what are the recommended steps to swiftly do during a heart attack? Keep 325-mg aspirin both upstairs and downstairs in your home, for quick access. A Harvard study indicates that while baby aspirin may be recommended for a daily dose, an additional 325-mg tablet is needed during a heart attack. Don’t use an enteric-coated tablet, as it will act too slowly. Chew then swallow the aspirin. A study in Texas found that chewing was the fastest way to be absorbed by several minutes compared to other consumption methods. Time is essential. Call 911, or if you live close enough, get to the hospital immediately. Be proactive and talk to your physician about your heart on annual checkups and if recommended, ask for an EKG with a follow-up report. Life is good, and I am blessed beyond belief to be alive!

Hundreds of Escondido residents comment on police budget some time, and the only policy that they hadn’t adopted until recently was the ban on the carotid restraint. Councilmember Olga Diaz and Mayor McNamara both said they had never seen a public response like this at a council meeting and urged future community input. Deputy Mayor Consuelo Martinez acknowledged that, although it may have been too late in the budget approval process to implement the changes suggested by the community, she thinks the issue is an important one. “We do have, in our country, a structural racism problem, and if we don’t see it, that’s an issue,” Marti-
nez said. “We are a diverse community, and we must acknowledge that not everyone in our community has a positive relationship with law enforcement. Some communities live in fear.” Councilmember Mike Morasco agreed that further discussions for police reform should be had, but said that he was “offended” by some of the public comments and assertions. “This cry of systemic racism and brutalization of the police, it very well could be valid in other areas, but that’s not what we are seeing here,” Morasco said. “I don’t believe it’s a true reflection of our police.” The council approved the budget 4-0.

ESCONDIDO — Amid ongoing nationwide protests and a growing movement to defund the police, Escondido City Council received almost 400 public comments at its June 10 budget meeting, regarding the city’s $45.6 million police department budget. The council opened a public hearing on its fiscal year 2020-21 budget proposal, which received so many comments that Mayor Paul McNamara had to recess the meeting and reconvene it the following day. Funding for the police department makes up 43% of the city’s overall budget, although it was noted that the city cut $1.8 million
from the police department budget this year compared to last year. The majority of comments from Escondido residents criticized the need for such a large police budget and called for defunding the department. The defunding campaign is a movement that has been around for decades but was reignited after recent incidents of police brutality. It supports divesting funds from police departments and reallocating them to non-police forms of public safety, such as social services and other community resources. Escondido Chief of Police Ed Varso, who was at the council meeting, pointed out that the Escondido Police
Department was one of the first agencies in the county to participate in the Psychological Emergency Response Team (PERT), a program that partners police officers with psychiatric clinicians to work together to assess mentally ill individuals. “When we’re responding to calls in our community, we have more than just a law enforcement response, we also have a clinical response that works in partnership with us so that we’re not only able to provide the safety element, but also the resources and services necessary to help that person that’s in crisis,” Varso said. The overwhelming push from residents to defund the police reflects a nation-
wide outcry sparked by the recent deaths of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and Breonna Taylor at the hands of Louisville police. Protests and demonstrations in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement continue in cities across the U.S., including Escondido. Residents also called for the police department to adopt the “8 Can’t Wait” program, a list of eight policies that supporters believe can be implemented by police departments to avoid police brutality incidents during arrests. Varso said the department has been involved in that type of training and policy direction for quite

REGION — Clergy from a countywide faith coalition, including North County pastors and two regional denominational leaders, called for law enforcement reforms during a June 10 press conference at the Roman Catholic Diocesan Pastoral Center in San Diego. The group's appeal came in response to the May 25 killing of George Floyd, an African American male, at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. “I’m grateful to have some of my white colleagues stand here with me today, because me and my black colleagues, … we do this every summer,” said the Rev. Terrel Fletcher, a San Diego pastor. “The reality of the matter, white pastor, white bishop, white brethren, [is that] the average racist doesn’t go to my church. The average racist is in your congregation. … I am challenging you as a man or woman of God to call it out. … Our churches subdue problems, instead of expose them and deal with them.” Fletcher made his petition as a member of the San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP), a nonpartisan group organizing a coalition of 29 congregations countywide, including seven in North County. Joining Fletcher were more than 20 other SDOP clergy, including Catholics, Mainline and Evangelical Protestants, a Jewish rabbi and a Muslim imam. Among them, Rev. Robert McElroy and Rev. Susan Snook are bishops, or regional overseers, of the Catholic and Episcopal churches, respectively — two of the metropolitan area’s single largest denominations. “We rupture the compact we have with God through racism and structures of racism,” McElroy said. “[African Americans] have been victimized … through a system of law enforcement, and a justice system and a penal system, which places the black community on the cross.” Structures of racism also include disparities in healthcare and housing, McElroy said.

“It’s not enough for people of color to do the work [of dismantling systemic racism],” Snook told The Coast News. “[White people] also have to do that work of giving up some of the advantages that we have.” The SDOP clergy called for four main policing reforms. Some are quite extensive, while others are already underway, but none of the proposed measures have been adopted uniformly across the county’s law enforcement agencies.
cording to the Prison Policy Initiative, only 5 percent of police arrests are for serious violent offenses. It is time for police departments to, at minimum, be cut in half.” “We’re pretty far behind in … building trust relationships with [police] chiefs across the county,” said Dinora Reyna, SDOP’s executive director, citing that the San Diego City Council recently adopted its budget without reducing police funding.

of law, “reasonable suspicion” is a lower bar than the Fourth Amendment’s “probable cause.” California case law limits the instances to which reasonable suspicion may apply. In Escondido, “the vast majority of our stops are based on probable cause,” while reasonable suspicion applies only in “some instances,” Kevin Toth, a departmental spokesman, said in a June 15 email. “All searches are based on probable cause or a warrant.” But many activists believe the lower bar is generally subject to abuse, as illustrated famously in reaction against New York City’s stop and frisk policy in the 2000s. Raising the bar to probable cause is part of PrOTECT, a broader agenda of the Coalition for Police Accountability and Transparency, a collaboration between SDOP, ACLU of San Diego and other organizations. “We want to minimize unnecessary interaction” between the community and police, Jeffrey Karahamuheto, an SDOP organizer, told
CITIZEN OVERSIGHT Third, SDOP wants to boost a citizen oversight board’s power independently to investigate complaints of law enforcement officer misconduct in the City of San Diego. Two other such bodies exist in the region: Citizens Law Enforcement Review Board (CLERB), which investigates complaints against San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies, whose jurisdiction covers much of the county, and the Community & Police Relations Commission in National City. Of the incorporated cities in North County, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Vista and San Marcos contract law enforcement services from the sheriff, and so fall under CLERB’s purview. Karahamuheto said such boards generally lack teeth to have any meaningful impact. He lauded the Committee of San Diegans for Justice, which proposes beefing up San Diego’s oversight board with subpoena power and its own legal counsel, independent of the city attorney. Oceanside, Carlsbad and Escondido maintain police forces, but not citizen oversight boards, despite a 2016 grand jury recommendation that they should. At the time, both Oceanside and Escondido City Councils told the grand jury that existing local protocols sufficed for handling complaints. Oceanside’s current council has “not had a collective discussion on the matter,” Mayor Peter Weiss said in a June 13 email. WeTheProtesters, Inc. has compiled statewide lessthan-lethal use of force data. The nonprofit's compilation includes a 2019 report from the Oceanside Police Department, which shows that, from 2013 to 2017, the department received 22 complaints about officers’ use of
REGION — The San Diego County Office of Education, along with the California Department of Education, announced a free suicide prevention training program June 17 available online to middle and high school staff and students throughout the state. “The COVID-19 pandemic not only disrupted the academic lives of our students and families, but it may have contributed to emotional and mental health challenges that some of our students struggle with,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond. “It is important that students know that they have someone to turn to within their school community when they are feeling overwhelmed. “Providing this specialized training to school staff and peers can not only be utilized to support students in crisis during the critical time we are in now, but any time a student is feeling despondent, stressful, and alone.” The online training program is called LivingWorks Start and is aligned with the department’s “Model Youth Suicide Prevention Policy” to address the needs of highrisk populations. According to a recent report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is the second-leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 24. For every youth who dies by suicide, an estimated 100 to 200 young people make suicide attempts, the report said. “This is not a onesize-fits-all solution,” said Paul Gothold, San Diego County Superintendent of Schools. “By working with all 58 county offices of education to distribute this online training to their areas of greatest need, we are honoring the expertise, resources, and needs of each community.’’

Stone Brewing criticized for mishandling COVID-19 layoffs By Tigist Layne
REGION — Businesses in San Diego County have started reopening in the past couple of weeks after lockdown restrictions due to COVID-19 shuttered businesses for months. In trying to creatively adapt to these uncertain times, however, some companies are being criticized for mishandling layoffs. As businesses reopen, many of those who were furloughed are returning to work, while employees who were permanently laid off must grapple with the fact that they have been left behind. Last month, health care workers and nurses held protests in response to the layoffs of more than 300 Palomar Health employees, becoming one of the first and perhaps the most vocal group of employees to speak out about layoffs. More recently, Stone Brewing, the largest brewery in Southern California, has also been scrutinized for claims that they mishandled companywide layoffs. The brewery, which has two World Bistro & Gardens locations, including in Escondido, as well as several taprooms in San Diego County, reopened their doors at the beginning of June after statewide orders forced them, and numerous other businesses, to close down back in March. A former employee, who wishes to remain anonymous, told The Coast News

that they worked at Stone for several years before being laid off on April 6 via a roughly seven-minute conference call with more than 300 other employees. “It was very cut and dry. It wasn’t a furlough or anything like that. It was just like, ‘We’re restructuring the company, we’ll be running on a skeleton staff,’ which they didn’t even tell us what that meant,” the former employee said. According to the source, the staff, which included servers, bartenders, bussers, hosts, food runners, kitchen personnel and retail personnel, were told that they could reapply once Stone reopened again but were given no indication that they would get rehired. “I think a lot of people were planning to reapply, but as time went on, we
started realizing that they might not be having us back because they started utilizing GoTab, which was something Gregg Frazer was really pushing even before COVID,” the former employee said. “There was a lot of suspicion that he wasn’t going to bring servers back because it means less labor costs for Stone.” Gregg Frazer is Stone’s vice president of hospitality who was hired in December 2017. He began implementing a mobile ordering and payment platform called GoTab in September 2019. This former employee told The Coast News that they were not contacted once Stone reopened, and when employees searched for positions on their website, they rarely found any listings. “We found out that
they’ve been calling people and handpicking who they want to come work for them,” the source said. “They also don’t have servers anymore. They’re using GoTab exclusively. So it looks they’ve eliminated the position of server completely, at least at this point.” The source said they are disappointed by the situation, but not surprised that the company would seemingly prioritize GoTab over their employees. “Because many restaurants are in this same situation and are trying to operate with these new regulations, it’s a little bit more understandable right now, but I think in the long run, they should go back to having servers, and I honestly don’t know if they ever will,” the employee said. A different Stone employee, who wishes to remain anonymous, told The Coast News that they were one of a handful of people who was rehired. The source said there

are currently around 1012 front of house employees working at each World Bistro & Gardens location, pointing out that before the layoffs, servers alone made up about 30 of the front of house employees. This employee confirmed that there is, in fact, no longer a server position at the moment. Instead, orders are made through GoTab and everyone is a “crew member.” The hourly pay rate has remained consistent, but employees are now required to pool their tips. Frazer responded to the criticism. “It’s incredibly unfortunate that we had to lay off employees due to COVID-19,” Frazer said. “We are, in fact, taking a slow approach to re-hiring,
as we’re still not sure what the hospitality landscape will look like in the coming months, weeks or even days. Contactless ordering via GoTab has not been put in place to eliminate positions, but as a safety measure to protect our team members and guests during these early days of re-opening. “Immediately following our layoffs caused by the COVID-19 shutdown, we created a fund to support all laid-off employees. Our co-founder, Greg Koch, contributed his entire 2020 salary. Co-Founder Steve Wagner, CEO Dominic Engels and other executives also contributed. We opened it up to the rest of Team Stone and are proud to have offered additional support to these employees during this time.”

day from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The organization has also maintained its mail service and its food box and bag distribution to guests, and has implemented a drive-through food bag distribution on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in partnership with Feeding San Diego. Brother Benno’s dinein hot breakfast/brunch, thrift store, clothing room, rental and utility assistance, showers, laundry and haircut programs are unavailable until further notice. The Duwara Consciousness Foundation, a nonprofit based in Oceanside, is another organization that has ramped up its services during the pandemic. The nonprofit has a goal of serving others in three steps: first, by providing access to nutritious vegetarian food to those in need; second, by providing access to hygiene services like showers and laundry to those in need; and third, by creating a sanctuary community in San Diego County that offers transitional housing, food, showers, friendly atmosphere and job training. The Duwara Consciousness Foundation is currently executing its first step through a mobile food trailer that founding couple Davinder Singh and Harisimran Kaur take to San Diego and its second step through a mobile shower trailer program that the couple is about to begin. Before the pandemic, the food trailer went to the East Village in San Diego twice a week. Once the pandemic struck and other services began to close, the organization ramped up its food truck services to six days a week, Monday through Saturday. The food truck makes completely plant-based burritos, Singh said. Some have the option of adding sour cream to their burrito. Other groups even drive to pick up burritos to distribute in other cities in the county. The third step is a land project that would serve as a conduit to permanent housing for homeless residents. The more than 20 acres of land purchased in the county would be equipped with transitional micro-housing and offer job training throughout the property. “The land project has always been since day one our No. 1 priority,” Singh said. “I know it’s going to happen.” Graziano also wants to see a “tiny village,” as she calls it, for the homeless to be able to live and reestablish themselves that will help to end unsheltered homelessness in North County. Additionally, she wants to see a day center where homeless people can take classes, use the internet and connect with mental health and drug rehabilitation resources.

Educational Opportunities Summer Science & Sports Academy
Supports local non-profit organizations ENCINITAS — Encinitas Charities Consulting Group (ECCG) is behind an annual fundraising event called the Summer Science & Sports Academy benefiting the community in three ways: engaging Kindergarteners through 8th Graders in science and sports education, providing access to high quality enrichment education to low-income households and offering cash-strapped non-profit organizations a new avenue for earning income. The Summer Science & Sports Academy will take place from July 13 - 31, 2020. Each week will contain unique content such that a student could attend all three weeks without repeating any material. Enrolling in the Academy means students will get 15 hours of pre-recorded STEM and sports content delivered to their inbox. They have the option to complete labs and activities that day or whenever their schedule allows. Experts will be available throughout the week for live sessions to discuss the day’s activities and answer questions. Scholarships will be awarded to Title 1 students who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs at school. These households will be able to access all three weeks of Academy content
at no charge. ECCG decided to create a program combining science and sports to provide a well-rounded camp-style experience for students. Research shows exercise temporarily increases blood flow to the brain, ensuring better performance and making it easier to focus on academic learning. STEM
Scholarships will be awarded to Title 1 students who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs at school. education enrichment programs lead to better academic outcomes for both advanced students and those who have shown less interest in science and related subjects. Non-profit organizations will benefit by partnering with ECCG to spread the word about the Academy. Participating charities are known as Beneficiary Partners. Tickets for each week cost $150 or $400 for all three weeks. Beneficiary Partners keep 80% of their ticket sales and 90% of sponsorship amounts they bring in;
the fundraising opportunity for each charity is unlimited and there is no minimum amount Partners have to raise. Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association, Encinitas Chamber of Commerce, Encinitas Educational Foundation, Patrons of Encinitas Parks, Rancho Coastal Humane Society, San Diego Botanic Garden, San Diego LabRats, Coast Digital, Studio ACE and The San Dieguito Heritage Museum have confirmed their participation as Beneficiary Partners. “The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all of us and our local non-profits are being hit especially hard since support needed from them is at an all-time high while the economic impact of this virus has caused a dramatic drop in charitable giving. Let’s all come together to support families in need and the charities that support the most vulnerable in our community,” said Jim Merrill, Executive Director of ECCG. Enrollment is now open at sdlabrats.org/science-sports-academy. Charitable organizations interested in partnering with ECCG should visit sdlabrats.org/ beneficiary-partners.

Carlsbad High star drafted by MLB’s Rangers By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — One of Carlsbad High School’s best is now a ranger. Well, a Texas Ranger. Thomas Saggese, a senior shortstop at CHS, was drafted in the fifth round, the 145th pick, by the Major League Baseball club during the league draft on June 11. Saggese’s senior season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but he hit .440 with three home runs and nine RBI in seven games. As a junior, Saggese was a force, hitting .422 with 10 homers, 26 RBI and seven stolen bases. This year’s draft was modified from its usual 40 rounds to just five. “It was surreal,” Saggese said of being drafted. “It’s been a lifelong dream of mine. I have worked very hard for this and I am so thrilled to get my career
started.” Saggese transferred to Carlsbad High two years ago and became the focal point of the culture and work ethic Lancers coach Jake Savicki wanted to bring to the program. “Having him around, you just kind of knew,” Savicki said. “He had a real impressive junior year. As
it happened last year, everybody felt like they were part of something special.” With his selection, Saggese is now the second-highest draft choice in school history, behind former Anaheim Angels star Troy Glaus, who was selected in the second round by the Padres out of CHS in 1994. Glaus went to UCLA instead, and was drafted by the Angels in the first round three years later. Saggese has committed to Pepperdine University. Savicki said his star shortstop should project as a shortstop at the next level, too. The coach, in his seventh year, said Saggese’s arm strength needs a little work, but he is confident that over the next several months or year Saggese will improve in that area. While Saggese is described as a grinder who puts in long hours after
practice and games, Savicki said the game comes natural to the teenage prodigy. The effort Saggese puts in, the coach said, is due to the love of the game. And while Saggese is riding high, MLB and the players union are at a crossroads and the 2020 season is in jeopardy due to the pandemic. Additionally, Minor League Baseball, which is independent of MLB, has release hundreds of players and its 2020 season is also in jeopardy, according to an ESPN report. Saggese saw his pro stock skyrocket over the past year, with some publications and baseball pundits projecting he would be drafted as high as the third round. “He’s a baseball guy and has everything else,” Savicki said. “For a program, it’s fun for us. We’re real proud of him.”
Olympic skateboard qualifier in Long Beach postponed until May CARLSBAD — Mountain Dew and the Carlsbad-based Adventure Sports Network announced June 17 that they have postponed their annual summer Dew Tour skateboard competition and festival in Long Beach until May 2021 due to the coronavirus. The decision was made in light of the postponement
of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics. The Olympics will now be held July 23-Aug. 8, 2021. The Dew Tour skateboard competition will serve as the last Olympic qualifying event in the United States before the Tokyo Games. Exact event dates have not yet been determined.
In June 2019, Dew Tour served as the first global Olympic qualifying event in the U.S. for men's and women's skateboard street and park competitions. “Postponing the Dew Tour Long Beach weekend until 2021 is the best decision to ensure the safety of our athletes, fans, partners, vendors and staff during these
unprecedented times,” said Courtney Gresik, Dew Tour vice president and general manager. “The Dew Tour remains committed to the progression of skateboarding, furthering awareness and appreciation of the sport as we lead up to the 2021 Olympic Games.” — City News Service

Encinitas’ budget resilient, despite virus ENCINITAS — Encinitas will absorb only a 3 percent reduction in budgeted General Fund revenues for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1, despite major COVID-19 related blows regionwide to hotel and sales taxes. This relatively minor budget haircut illustrates, in part, differences in the coastal cities’ structural dependence on tourism related revenues, especially transient occupancy tax. Other coastal cities have, at various moments in past weeks, forecasted bigger bites out of their revenue portfolios — roughly 4% in Solana Beach, 5% in Oceanside, 9% in Carlsbad and 20% in Del Mar. These revenue losses won’t always translate into budget deficits, but sometimes rather, as in Carlsbad’s case, reduced budget surpluses. “I think a lot of folks thought that the cuts may have been even deeper,” Encinitas City Councilman Joe Mosca said, at a June 10 council meeting. City finance staff think Encinitas can get through the next fiscal year, virus-induced economic slump and all, without tapping any contingency reserves. Staff expect to maintain reserves at the fully funded level of $14

million, or 20% of operation expenditures. “That’s a pretty good story for us,” Mosca said. Teresa McBroome, Encinitas’ finance director, credits conservative planning and the buoying effect of high housing prices, which in turn maintain property assessments as a cushion against losses in other revenue sectors. “Before [COVID-19] happened, [city staff] were already expecting a recession,” she said. “What we’re seeing currently in the housing market is that there’s a low inventory of houses, and so what’s happening is houses are being sold at higher prices. “Because we are in the area that we are, during even the 2008 recession we never had a reduction in forecasts. We’ve taken all of this into account, and we’re expecting property taxes to remain strong. … We were really conservative. “Usually when there’s a recession tourism comes back slowly, so we made re-

ally deep cuts [in our revenue forecasts] in that area.” Transient occupancy tax revenues imploded as business travelers, tourists and spring breakers stayed home. But this revenue category makes up only about 4 percent of Encinitas’ revenue pie, by far the lowest among North County’s five coastal cities. Likewise, property taxes, which have remained relatively stable, account for more than 70% of Encinitas’ General Fund revenues, the highest proportion among North County’s coastal cities, McBroome said in a June 13 e-mail. Asked to comment on the huge difference between Encinitas and Del Mar, in terms of COVID-19’s impact on hotel tax revenues, McBroom told The Coast News: “That is primarily due to Del Mar having the L'Auberge hotel which is a high-end hotel that charges $500-$600 per night. So, part of the reason is that while Encinitas has double the [number] of hotels that Del Mar does,
we have a different mix of hotels than they do.” Even so, Encinitas’ relatively rosy budget picture doesn’t mean it’s out of the woods. “This is not over. We’re coming out of it … quicker than we thought we would. But the future is unknown,” City Manager Karen Brust said at a May 27 budget meeting. “There’s a lot of talk about what may happen [i.e., COVID-19 resurgence], come fall or winter.” Over the past year, council has dipped into its unrestricted General Fund balance — the positive balance maintained in the city’s primary discretionary fund — depleting it from roughly $8 million to $2 million. As a result, “We won’t have the ability to make these small budget adjustments” next year, Mayor Catherine Blakespear said on May 27. “I fear that we will have, in the next year’s emergent needs, similar to what we had in the last year, maybe even more, given COVID-19’s effect.”

Carlsbad couple takes on fitness through app By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The fitness industry is undergoing big changes and one of those is in part thanks to one local couple. James and Nerissa Zhang used their strengths and experience to build a mobile app to help people continue their workouts, while also acting as a connection for trainers to expand their client base. All this was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. For nearly three months, though, gyms and workout facilities were closed due to the pandemic, but the Zhangs saw an opportunity to expand their user base for The Bright App. The company has acquired 2,000 users since September. “I never went to the gym until I met my wife,” James Zhang said. “She was complaining every week about how tedious it is to do something like bill her clients. I looked at the problem and came up with a solution.” James Zhang is a software engineer and entrepreneur who once worked at Google and built more than 40 apps, including the YouTube app. Nerissa, meanwhile, is a fitness trainer who owns two gyms in San Francisco, where the couple met before moving to Carlsbad, and is the CEO of The Bright App. Last fall, though, she saw a chance to help trainers expand their client base outside of con-

tracting with brick-andmortar gyms. Additionally, the Zhangs focused on taking less of a cut of that revenue compared with gyms, which can run between 40% to 50% of a trainer’s revenue. The Zhangs charge just 4% for fees to trainers, thus allowing them to take home more income. Leaning on her personal experience and James Zhang’s skills developing apps, the couple launched The Bright App and have since been aggressive in connecting individuals with trainers as the pandemic forced at-home workouts. They also certify their trainers who are looking to build out their clientele. Currently, there are 11 verified trainers connecting with clients, a group that includes an Olympic silver medalist and professional MMA fighter. “We introduced the marketplace two weeks ago to address the problem of gyms being closed and connecting trainers with clients,” Nerissa Zhang said. “This app the was a B2B (business to business) tool first and now it allows clients to find you.” As gyms reopen, though, Nerissa Zhang said the new protocols in place will not allow for large-scale attendance, thus leaving members and trainers looking for new ways to stay connected. Through the marketplace feature, clients and trainers can do virtual sessions through Zoom or other video integrations. The app also streamlines the business end for trainers, such as scheduling, billing and payments. “Virtual training is great because it’s super convenient,” Nerissa Zhang said. “You can keep your coach forever. Before, this was not possible. When I travel, I can still use my trainer.”

‘Tree Doctor’ voted Best of North County two years in a row
ince 1985, Russell Bowman has been delighting residents of San Diego County with his plant and tree expertise. So, it’s no wonder Bowman Plant and Tree Care Specialists have been named the San Diego Union-Tribune Community Press’ “Best of North County” voters’ poll for tree and plant care for a 2nd year in a row! He is lovingly referred to as the San Diego “tree doctor extraordinaire” by his clients, Bowman is known for transforming sickly trees and gardens into Disneyesque wonderlands. Using his own proprietary blend of organic biological nutrition, Bowman feeds plants at night—a trick he picked up during his time as a horticulturist at Disneyland. “When you feed plants at night, they have enough time to absorb the nutrition, before it is degraded by the sun’s rays.” He said. “That’s why, when most people are winding down their days, eating dinner, and going to bed, we are out feeding plants and trees.” He’s done more than just care for sick plants and trees, he’s revolutionized both residential and com-
mercial properties by the use of his organic fertilizer tanks that inject his magical formula through your irrigation systems. This program reduces the households use of water overall by 30%. In a very short time, this program pays back through reduced water bills. “When you give your body proper nutrition, it affects your overall health and boosts your immunity, so you don’t get sick. The same is true for plants and trees.” Bowman feeds complete “nutrition delivery biology” derived from earthworm castings to replenish the missing healthy soil biology. This works with a client’s current irrigation system so that each time the landscaping is watered, the needed soil biology is replenished. “This is the secret to keeping your property looking like a five-star resort.” Russell is quick to point out that healthy plants and trees are also environmentally friendly. A healthy plant will be more efficient at photosynthesizing sunlight into oxygen and the healthy soil/ compost helps bring down uses far less water.

COVID-19 requires adjustments to help victims of domestic violence By Catherine Allen
they may not feel safe to report domestic violence and that’s definitely a hurdle that we deal with in all domestic violence cases,” said Deputy Jenny Martinson, San Diego County Sheriff's Department’s domestic violence coordinator. “The pandemic, the stay-at-home order, has definitely made that more difficult.” As an agency offering services for domestic violence victims, the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) currently serves 20 families in transitional housing and
eight in their shelter. WRC’s demand for shelter has declined, which Development Director Lauren-Jane Stephenson says is possibly because victims are confined in the same space as their abuser. Now, WRC looks to provide basic services such as helping with utility bills and toiletries, as up to 99% of domestic violence victims also face financial abuse. “It was difficult for our clients as they were escaping their abuser and at the same time dealing with
additional feelings of fear and isolation due to COVID, feelings victims are all too familiar with due to domestic violence,” Stephenson said. “I think what this has taught us the most as an agency is to always be ready to readjust to the needs of our community.” Calling for a large-scale response, government officials, including U.S. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano), have proposed funding $50 million into programs that offer services against abuse, namely Fam-
ily Justice Centers. San Diego’s Family Justice Center, located downtown, offers victims critical resources and legal services, but with only one center in the county, outreach is limited.“The county is looking at expanding victim services throughout the county so that we can reach areas like Vista all the way to Chula Vista,” Martinson said. Shipley says that these centralized centers allow for collaborative approaches between police agencies
and organizations, ensuring victims have the best opportunities available to them. “In our unit we have the benefit of a long history of collaboration with a variety of other professionals to ensure that our victims, children and families receive the best possible service and support,” Shipley said. “Many of these crimes incorporate a variety of concerns, and therefore require a team of caring, invested, professionals to work collaboratively toward positive resolutions.”
found that from 1993 to 2017, 40 percent of cases involved a white officer shooting a non-white subject, while 29 percent involved a white officer shooting a white subject. But the review cautions against drawing conclusions based on a lack of contextual demographic data. The review found that 78 percent of shootings “did not involve less than lethal force prior to the shooting;” 92 percent involved armed civilian subjects; 79 percent involved subjects under the influence of drugs or alcohol and/or with “mental health issues.” In 2019, the Sheriff’s Department was the county’s first agency to formalize de-escalation training, which was delivered that year to nearly 1,700 deputies. Compared with numbers from the previous year, 2019 saw reductions of 80 percent and 20 percent in the use of lethal and lessthan-lethal force, respec-
tively. The Sheriff’s Department has also stopped using hand-me-down military weapons and vehicles. The Carlsbad Police Department recently adopted
are among the most likely preludes to officer-involved shootings. Similarly, of 12 possible types of police-civilian contact preceding an officer’s use of force, “vehicle/bike/
viduals at a higher rate than they searched White individuals, despite discovering contraband on members of these groups less frequently when searched,” according to a 2020 report on stop data from a state attorney general’s advisory board. Certain statewide agencies, including the San Diego County Sheriff and San Diego Police Department, collected the stop data in 2018, as required by the state’s Racial and Identity Profiling Act (RIPA). A May 26 San Diego County Sheriff’s report on 2019 stop data specifically within its jurisdiction corroborates this disparity. The proportion of deputies’ searches yielding contraband or evidence varied by up to six percentage points, depending on race: Asians came up clean most frequently (82 percent), whites and Native Americans least frequently (76 percent). Investigating current racial patterns in local agen-
cies’ use of force is more ambiguous, given scarce local data. Countywide in 2019, WeTheProtesters counted only four civilian deaths caused by local agencies. According to their data, from 2013 to 2019, of 19 instances where a San Diego county officer killed an unarmed subject, six subjects were white, six Hispanic, five black, one Asian and one unknown. From 2016 to 2018, there were 21 instances where a San Diego county officer used force while wrongly perceiving the subject to have a weapon. Of those, seven subjects were white, eight Hispanic, five black and one Asian/ Pacific Islander, according to The Coast News’ Use of Force Database analysis. All law enforcement departments are certified in basic officer proficiency training by the state's Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).
Williams confirmed the suspect received only one injury, a minor puncture wound from a taser dart to the chest. Once the suspect had arrived at Scripps, he was sedated and held overnight before being discharged the following morning. The same day of the incident, Carlsbad Police Department announced they adopted a countywide San Diego County Police Chiefs and Sheriff’s Association De-Escalation Philosophy which “requires when law enforcement is called upon to respond to a crisis or criminal act, they will, if reasonable under the circumstances, use tactics and techniques to persuade the individual to voluntarily comply.” “It’s important for our officers to, as quickly as possible, differentiate between a criminal crisis and a mental crisis.” The Carlsbad Police categorized this incident as a “mental crisis,” stating the subject exhibited disorientation, hyper-aggression, incoherent shouting, and paranoia, symptoms of a psychological state defined as, “excited delirium.” Williams noted, “there isn’t one push, one pull, one use of force after the subject is handcuffed,” stating that once a subject is restrained, police are
instructed to immediately transition to a caretaking role. “That transition to caretaker is a challenge but it is what we expect our police officers to do. For our police officers to be able to handle this situation as professionally as they did, with no serious injuries and getting this person to the hospital so they could recover… I’m proud of them,” Williams said. Within hours of the incident, supervisors at the Carlsbad Police department reviewed the body camera footage and police reports. “I would’ve been upset with our officers if they would have left that person on the sidewalk all by himself,” Williams said. “Based on his actions and his level of intoxication, he was either going to hurt himself or somebody else.” Cox spoke to the Coast News about witnessing the scene unfold and deciding to stop and film the incident with his cell phone. “I heard screaming through my window and I stopped my truck and jumped out… turned on my video camera and ran to the scene. It was very upsetting… it really struck a deep chord,” Cox said. “[When] I turned off the video, I said [to him] ‘Good luck. Good luck, my friend. We’ve got your back.”
REGION — Responding to the risk of domestic violence during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, San Diego County is working to expand resources for a greater number of people. According to the supervisor of Carlsbad Police Family Services Investigative Unit, Sergeant Reid Shipley, Carlsbad had 126 crime cases for domestic violence between March 1 and June 14, while receiving new cases daily. “If a victim is isolated with their abuser,

force. Of those complaints, the department’s internal adjudication process found none to be sustained. Oceanside City Councilwoman Esther Sanchez told The Coast News in a June 16 email that she’s requested information on all complaints against officers the department has received over the past 20 years. She expects the department to respond within the next month or two. “In light of recent events, … I don’t think any idea is off the table to include citizen oversight,” Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara said in a June 14 email.

released without charges.” At 37 seconds into the body camera footage, one of the officers can be seen communicating a nonverbal command with his partner to handcuff the man. Within seconds of attempting to restrain the man, both body cameras of the officers involved were knocked off their chests and fell to the ground, causing a two-minute visual blackout in the footage while audio remained intact. The cellphone video captured by Joseph Cox, a local man who noticed the events unfolding, begins during the two minutes in which police body cameras were blacked out, showing officers tasing and handcuffing the man while on the ground. “Our policy permits us to use tasers when [we’re] dealing with a violently resistive person,” Williams said. “The officer initially tried to use the taser in the least harmful manner by taking off the barbs, [however] it was unsuccessful because the person had baggy clothes on. The officer then put the barbs back in the cartridge. One of the barbs connected with the subject’s chest and one got lodged in his pants… but was again unsuccessful be-

cause the person had multiple pants on. That’s why through the recording you hear multiple applications of the taser clicking.” As seen in Cox’s footage, the officers used their body weight to pin the man to the ground, placing a hand on the top of his head to “prevent him from injuring himself on the concrete” or potentially biting an officer — an issue Williams said the Carlsbad police have dealt with before. At this point, Cox’s video shows the officers replacing their body cameras, as visual footage resumes. Through the two
minutes, the subject can be heard yelling, “This is what you stand for… you want equality… this is what you stand for.” At 4:05, officers can be seen placing a white mesh “spit sock” on the suspect’s face. According to Carlsbad Police, the spit sock utilized was made of a breathable mesh material made to restrict the transmission of droplets and moisture. “It doesn’t cause injury or impede the person’s ability to breathe,” Williams said. “Since COVID-19, we’ve required our officers to put masks
on anybody they transport in their patrol cars. [The spit sock] is only used when necessary under the circumstances to prevent exposure [to COVID.]” After the officers handcuffed the subject, they rotated him to his side, a “position of recovery” to ensure the subject is able to breathe freely and their airways remain open in the event of possible vomiting, Williams said. The subject was then moved to a gurney, placed in an ambulance and taken to Scripps Encinitas, a local hospital to receive medical treatment.

Carlsbad approves building permit, application extensions By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Development is expected to slow down over the next several months, or even year, as the COVID-19 pandemic has put millions out of work. For developers, it means slowing or even shutting down plans for new construction or renovations. However, the City Council approved a one-year extension for building permits and permit applications in response to COVID-19 during its June 16 meeting.
Jeff Murphy, community development director for the city, said delays are inevitable and by allowing permits and applications an extension, it will help ease the burden moving into the future. “The number of delays will continue to increase in the foreseeable future,” he told the council. On May 18, staff met with the economic revitalization ad hoc subcommittee to provide recommendations on authorizing
automatic time extensions for building permit and building permit applications. The 2019 California Building Code authorizes building officials to grant time extensions on building permit and building permit applications on a case-bycase basis in response to an applicant’s written request demonstrating justifiable cause for the extension. However, when the city adopted the state standards last year, the ability to ex-
tend building permit applications was inadvertently excluded from the city’s building code, Murphy said. Regardless, the council approved the item on June 16, which included the ability to grant an extension. Murphy said the first steps for the process are submitting an application followed by obtaining building permits, which are valid for one year. Additionally, the city reviews the applications and permits on a case-by-case basis for an
extension. Under the new resolution, the automatic oneyear extension will provide additional time builders will need while avoiding the case-by-case evaluation process that is currently required for granting time extensions. The council also approved authorizing building officials to extend unexpired applications and permits an additional year from the date they are issued.
Building permits expire within 180 days from the date of issuance unless work authorized under the permit commences. The section goes on to authorize officials to grant one or more extensions of time for periods not to exceed 180 days, each for a cumulative total of no more than three years, on a case-bycase basis, again upon the applicant’s written request demonstrating justifiable case for the extension, according to the staff report.
Surfer, activist named Constituent of the Month By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — An Oceanside resident and activist for women of color in the surfing community has been chosen as the “Constituent of the Month” for the 49th district. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) named Danielle Black Lyons the top constituent for June. Recently, Lyons helped organize a recent paddle-out memorial in Encinitas to honor the memory of George Floyd, who was killed while in police custody in Minneapolis in late May, and other victims of police brutality and systemic racial injustice. In the surfing community, a paddle-out is usually held when someone dies. A group of surfers paddle out into the waters and circle around whoever the next of kin is or whoever is leading the paddle-out, where they share a few words. People often bring flowers and throw them in the water, Lyons explained, or they may even bring the ashes of the person who died to be spread out to sea. “In surf culture, it’s one of the most sacred ways to honor lives lost,” Lyons said. Lyons, together with Becky Mendoza of the Changing Tides Foundation, Justin Wilkenseld and Jordan Miller of Kindhumans and 13-year X Games commentator Sal Masekela, made the paddle-out a reality on June 3 through coordination with the local lifeguards and police. Lyons said the paddle-out brought between 4,000 and 5,000 people into the water, including surfers and open water swimmers alike. Prior to hitting the water, Lyons and some of the other organizers spoke on the beach to the group. Lyons said she spoke about the need for people to take personal responsibility to make changes happen at a local level. “I think change begins within yourself, your home and your local community first, then spreads out from there,” Lyons said. Prior to entering the water, they held an eight-minute moment of silence while sharing George Floyd’s final words, "I can't breathe." Once in the water, the group began calling out chants. “It was a really power-

I think change begins within yourself, your home and your local community first, then spreads out from there.” Danielle Black Lyons Top constituent for June
ons said. The June 3 paddle-out was no exception. For Lyons, it was particularly powerful to see so many people in the water gathered in solidarity. "People in the black community, we’re all pretty
traumatized by what we witnessed when George Floyd was basically lynched,” Lyons said. Lyons added that she felt supported in a way she had never felt in her community of North County, where she has lived for six years. The paddle-out generated “lots of love” and gave people hope, according to Lyons. "It was very healing to see the community rally together,” she said. “I don’t think anybody walked away from that beach feeling worse.” Levin highlighted Lyons’ efforts in his entry into the congressional record. “This powerful traditional surfing demonstration paid tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement and gave hope to our community as it struggles to address these critically important issues,” Levin said. Organizing a paddle-out isn’t the only thing Lyons has done for her community. She is a co-founder of Textured Waves, an online platform created to promote the culture and sport of surfing for women
of color. African Americans are underrepresented in the surfing community, Lyons said, and so she formed the collective with three surf friends to help change that narrative. “There are not a lot of people of color in the water, and a large part of that is due to systemic racism,” Lyons said. "Representation is so important, we want to show future generations that we are out there and we want to make sure that story is being told from our lens.” Levin also highlighted Lyons’ work with Textured Waves in his entry as well. “I applaud Danielle’s spirit and activism, and look forward to seeing what else she will do to make a positive impact on our community, the surfing industry, and this important movement going forward,” Levin said. Levin originally launched his Constituent of the Month program to recognize people who “have gone above and beyond to make our region and our country a strong place for everyone to live and thrive.”
SAN MARCOS — More businesses in San Diego County reopened their doors this week. As of June 12, gyms, hotels, bars and wineries are part of the list of businesses that can accept customers again, provided they follow the county’s safety guidelines. In San Marcos, Crunch Fitness and LA Fitness opened their doors last Friday, while the city’s 24 Hour Fitness announced it is permanently closing its San Marcos location, along with three other San Diego-area locations, amid bankruptcy. “If it were not for COVID-19 and its devastating effects, we would not be filing for Chapter 11,” CEO Tony Ueber said in a statement. “We expect to have substantial financing with a path to restructuring our balance sheet and operations to ensure a resilient future.” Gyms and other fitness facilities are following the county’s safe reopening plan and changing daily operations to fit the new health and safety requirements brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Both Crunch Fitness and LA Fitness have committed to more frequent cleaning and sanitation practices, the use of masks and gloves by employees, daily temperature screenings of employees and the implementation of social
distancing guidelines throughout the facilities. Members are required to wear a mask when not exercising and to limit their workout time to 60 minutes in order to accommodate others. They are also asked to wipe down equipment before and after use. Mike Stevens, general manager of Crunch Fitness in San Marcos, told The Coast News that they have also limited their capacity to 70 people, compared to their usual capacity of 337. “It’s been super busy, and super high energy,” Stevens said. “We’ve had a lot of people signing up for memberships and we’re just assuring everyone that we are doing everything we can to keep them safe and satisfied.” Both Crunch and LA Fitness in San Marcos are experiencing high volumes of members excited to finally get to back to the gym and new customers who want to get started. “I’ve opened up a few gyms before and I’d say the excitement level here feels just like opening up a brand new gym,” Stevens said. “It’s very cool to see, and we’re very happy to back.” The next phase in the county’s reopening process was announced last week with nail salons, massage and tattoo parlors, and personal care businesses such as waxing, set to begin reopening June 19.

Belly Up offers fans archived, livestream shows By Lexy Brodt
SOLANA BEACH — Concert venues across the country have gone quiet, as the premise of mass gatherings remains remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But some are learning to adapt to the challenging climate — presenting music in ways that are perhaps less intimate, but ultimately more global. The Belly Up, one of the most iconic and beloved concert venues in San Diego, is among those dead set on not “hanging (their) heads,” said Chris Goldsmith, president of Belly Up Entertainment. Since closing its doors in mid-March and canceling about 200 shows slated for 2020, the famed North County venue has shifted its focus to releasing archival content, as well as bringing fans new livestreamed shows from the Belly Up’s stage. In early May, the club released 40 live concert recordings on its website through the “SharkBelly Festival,” a limited-time offering that will allow fans access to past shows
from the English Beat, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Rufus Wainwright — to name a few. The venue was able to get licensing permission from the artists and release the show recordings as albums about six weeks after the start of quarantine — what Goldsmith called a “gigantic effort” that has now prompted thousands of downloads. “It maintains the connection with our audience,” Goldsmith said. “and it provides them with quality entertainment while they’re sheltering at home.” And in an effort to bring fresh performances to Belly Up supporters, the club is homing in on livestreamed shows, having converted the venue into the likes of a television broadcast facility. “On our dance floor we have a bunch of cameras … It’s kind of like you’re watching a TV show,” said Goldsmith. Local band HIRIE kicked off the experiment in mid-May, attracting about 5,000 viewers — an
obvious step-up in “attendance” from the venue’s 600-person capacity. And according to Goldsmith, this is the real upside of the live show concept. Although it clearly can’t replace the energy and ambiance of an in-person performance, it allows for a greatly expanded reach. On top of bringing in revenue for the club, the shows also allow artists in the area to earn an income through the crisis and stay connected with their audiences throughout the country — given that most tours have been canceled and the idea of stepping on an airplane is taboo at best. The venue hosted two more live shows this past weekend — with local band Electric Mud playing on Saturday and the White Buffalo coming on for a show Sunday. Donavon Frankenreiter will be playing a live show next week — livestream tickets cost $10. Goldsmith said the venue is planning to do 20-30 such shows over the course of the summer. The

venue is also looking to help local charity organizations that had planned fundraisers at the club to go digital, holding live silent auctions, for example. “All of that can happen here as well, and we’re seeing that there’s a real need for that,” he said. Times are tough, but the industry is adjusting — and Goldsmith hopes to keep many of these changes alive even in a post-pandemic world. “That’s one of the things about this, it’s very challenging and it’s hard not having our club running the way it normally runs, but we’ve definitely discovered some really cool things to do and things we’ll still do even when we get back to full capacity,” Goldsmith said. But for music lovers and habitual concertgoers, digital performances will have to suffice for now. Goldsmith said the venue won’t be opening anytime soon. “It’s a bit of a roller coaster ride trying to figure out what we might do,” he said. “I don’t think we’ll get back to full capacity for a while — best case scenario in fall, and more realistically into 2021.” The venue will likely first open at 25% capacity and move up from there, in keeping with social distancing standards. Goldsmith said the venue’s team has been considering a “hybrid model” of live entertainment — keeping the current broadcast setup for viewers at home but also opening their doors to a smaller audience. Plenty of fall concerts are still on the books, and according to Goldsmith, enthusiastic audiences have still been buying. But the club isn’t actively promoting any shows right now. Many of the artists who had shows scheduled for 2020 shifted their concert dates to exactly a year later. Goldsmith said the live entertainment industry will probably take a while to fully recover due to its dependence on band tours, which are coordinated to pass through 40 to 50 cities. “You can’t turn that back on at a dime like you can if you’re a restaurant,” he said. “When we open, it’s going to take us months to reconstruct our ‘menu of items.’” But whatever comes next, Goldsmith said the club will make sure it’s a unique for the venue’s supporters. “We’re chomping at the bit to be able to (open), but we’re also very comfortable waiting till the time is right,” he said. “And when the time is right, we’ll have a very good plan, it’ll be very safe, very comfortable, and a cool experience.” For more information on the SharkBelly Festival and the Belly Up’s livestream concerts, visit: https: //www.bellyuplive. com.

San Diego Fairways Have Reopened! Do You Know the Important LINKS Between Golf and Your Hearing? We all know that the game of golf is filled with hazards, but what you may not realize is how hazardous golf can be to your hearing AND how important good hearing is to your game. Hint: It’s more than just the critical importance of being able to hear the word “fore” from across the fairway! Studies have shown that individuals with strong hearing tend to play better golf than those suffering from hearing loss. Golf legend Arnold Palmer, who began losing his hearing in his early 40s described the benefits of hearing aids to his own golf game in a 2003 interview with the editor-in-chief of Healthy Hearing, Dr. Douglas Beck:
“I’ve noticed the sound of the golf ball being hit by the golf club is different, and much more realistic, with the hearing aids. The sound with the hearing aids makes sense, and better represents what I know is happening to the golf ball. So, you could say that the hearing aids help give me confidence regarding my golf game.”
– Arnold Palmer Subsequent studies have also shown that you can experience driver-induced hearing loss if the noise level generated by your golf club thwacking your ball exceeds 116 dBA. Thin-faced titanium drivers especially pack a sound punch, revealed in a 2009 study of a 55-year-old man who developed tinnitus and hearing loss in his right ear, golfing three days a week, for 18-months.
Whether virtual (a.k.a. telehealth) visits for those who prefer to connect from the comfort of their homes, or private appointments, or even drive-up services, we’re here to offer the Rancho Santa Fe community exceptional hearing health care.
Regular hearing evaluations by a qualified audiologist are a good idea for avid golfers. Hearing loss often develops so gradually you are unaware of a problem until it has progressed to an advanced stage. The earlier hearing loss is detected, the more options you have for treatment and the better your odds for success.
Schedule an appointment with Rancho Santa Fe Audiology for a hearing screening and to learn about custom ear protection options:
The moral of the story—if golf is your game, your hearing health should be a top priority.

Scout rescues historic boat By Jordan P. Ingram
Carlsbad cracks down on parking By Staff
CARLSBAD — For quite a few years, the Village and other parts of Carlsbad have had threehour parking limit signs posted. However, for as many years the rules have not been regularly enforced, according to the Carlsbad Village Association. Starting June 25, in an effort to help foster turnover rates in key shopping, dining, and commerce areas, the municipal code will be more strictly upheld and plans are in place for parking limits to be enforced. The Carlsbad Village Association believes that regular shoppers and diners would like more access to businesses. The CVA is asking those with longterm parking needs use any of the public parking lots in the Village, or where time limits are not posted. In Carlsbad, all onstreet parking as well as the public lots are free. Long-term parking lots in the Village can be found at: • Coaster Station parking lot, 2787 State St. • Roosevelt North parking lot, 2938 Roosevelt St. • Roosevelt South parking lot, 2992 Roosevelt St. • South State parking lot, 3044 State St. • State & Grand parking lot, 2898 State St. • Washington parking lot, 3000 Washington St.
ENCINITAS — Since Ethan Huntington began his restoration of a 1950s San Diego County lifeguard rescue boat for his Eagle Scout service project, the yearlong journey presented a number of unforeseen challenges. Following months of preparations and hours of considerable work, Huntington completed his refurbishing efforts this past week, preserving a vestige of Encinitas’ historical lifesaving service. “There were a lot of hurdles we had to overcome to get it to this point,” Huntington said. “But even if it seemed really overwhelming, if I took it one step at time, I could do it.” When he first discovered the shallow-draft boat, or “dory,” it had been sitting for several years in the San Dieguito Heritage Museum in Encinitas. In the 1940s and 50s, lifeguards used the dory to perform rescue missions from Moonlight Beach to Fletcher Cove. Barb Grice, executive director of the Heritage Museum, said she is amazed lifeguards were able to operate such a large vessel. “This is a heavy boat,” Grice said. “Just think about rowing this to go save someone in the ocean. There are oars, but no engine. And you’re rowing out to save someone. It’s fascinating because that’s hard work. Think about how strong you have to be to lift those oars.” The boat was donated to the museum in 2012 by Encinitas Lifeguard Captain Larry Giles, who had kept it in storage since the 1980s. After nearly 70 years, the rescue dory — long since replaced with jet skis and surfboards by the Marine Safety Division of the Encinitas Fire Department — was timeworn and ravaged.

stroyed foam buoy clung to the sides without purpose. But a decaying keel was just the type of project the 14-year-old Pacific Ridge High School freshman had been seeking. “I really just wanted something different from everybody else,” Ethan Huntington told The Coast News. “I see a lot of kiosks and benches — they are very nice. But I wanted something different that would stand out and I would remember more.” And there were days when things didn’t fit exactly to plan. For example, the original anchor of the dory was
or about half an hour Saturday morning, my front yard almost qualified as a national park. We had our very own geyser, in all its glory. We’re not sure how long it had been gushing. Husband and I are in the back of the house and would not have heard or discovered it at all until we rolled out of bed much later. For that, I must be grateful for my daughter’s three cats. (This is a phrase I never thought I would speak.) They demand to be fed between 4 and 5 a.m. and woke up the son-in-law, who thought monsoon season had arrived, as water crashed against the front windows. My daughter assured him it wasn’t rain and went to investigate, then roused the closest parent — me. It’s still quite dark at 4 a.m. I knew we had a water shut-off valve and I knew where it used to be, but the area was now very overgrown. Flashlight in mouth, and shovel in hand, I began the search and got lucky. Except I could see no turnoff handle and was forced to waken the husband. In true hero fashion, he grabbed the right tools and triumphantly wrestled with the old, stiff valve. I may never nag this man again. The search began for a weekend plumber, and between it being Saturday and business shutdowns, many were incommunicado — even the ones that

Return of sporting life among the sights of summer sports talk jay paris
t was the one time a horseshoe came minus good luck. Xander Schauffele saw his three-foot par putt go boomerang at the recent Charles Schwab Challenge. It marked the PGA Tour’s first live tournament in some three months and Schauffele started the final round as its leader and was atop the leaderboard down the stretch. Then Schauffele, a Carmel Valley resident, landed on the wrong side of his putt on No. 17, producing the "Horrible Horseshoe." Still it felt right to watch sports again even with Schauffele's effort shooting out toward the left. It was exciting to pull for Schauffele, a San Diego State product, who continues to be among golf’s rising stars. Schauffele, along with Del Mar's Pat Perez, will be at this weekend's RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. There are few finer fields and it will draw plenty of eye-

balls as an eager audience awakens from its COVID-19 slumber. All around there are signs of summer and they’re sparkling with the sights of sports, with baseball being the exception. While the grand ol’ game might eventually get its tired act together, the damage it’s done through prickly negotiations won’t deflate easily.
Baseball’s biggest beef is of the dollar-and-cents variety and who knows if it makes sense to have contests during a pandemic. All sports are tiptoeing around a virus that isn’t hitting the brakes in many states and has claimed more than 320 lives in San Diego County. But pro sports are peeling back the curtain and the golfers, along with NA-
SCAR racing, lead the pack by performing with no fans in attendance. The NBA and NHL are nearing the resumptions of their seasons; the NFL is peddling tickets for preseason games starting in August. The WNBA is coming back. The big boys and girls aren’t the only ones breaking from the lock down. The San Diego Junior
Golf Association rekindled its 2020 season last weekend. Numerous North County Little Leagues are bolting from the bench to squeeze in an abbreviated season. It’s being done with kids and coaches wearing masks, attempting to maintain social distancing and utilizing other precautions. Youth football and numerous falls sports are
signaling that, with proper care, they plan on conducting their schedules, too. The new normal will include youngsters getting to play and everyone’s fingers are crossed this works well. That includes athletics at the high school level, where the CIF's head honchos are giving an approving nod about what lies ahead. But with their blessing comes a July 20 date with destiny for many seniors, hoping their final prep seasons aren’t erased as the final decision is rendered. While we wait, we’ll likely tune in to see if Schauffele, 26, can produce some magic again. After three top three finishes this season, he's good at making things happen. That goes for off the course, too. He joined fellow pros Jon Rahm and Poway’s Charley Hoffman at a recent fundraiser to benefit North County golf industry workers derailed by COVID-19. Schauffele, a four-time PGA Tour winner, is as eager to help as we are pleased to watch sports again. Some things are more difficult to mask than others. Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com.

Conservancy finds rare fairy shrimp ESCONDIDO —The Escondido Creek Conservancy recently discovered fairy shrimp (Branchinecta lindahli) near Hidden Meadows at the Mountain Meadow Preserve. This elusive species is fairly uncommon in San Diego County due to the loss of preferred habitat — vernal pools. And while they won’t grant you three wishes, their discovery is quite magical. Vernal pools are small depressions in the earth that fill up with water in the winter months. During that period, they spring to life with

rare plants, amphibians, and other aquatic creatures. In this case, the fairy shrimp were found in a roadrut on the preserve that had filled with water this spring—six pools total. While they aren’t natural vernal pools, they provided homes to tadpoles, plants, aquatic insects, and the elusive fairy shrimp. The shrimp are known for their translucent bodies, swimming upside down and their unusual life cycle. They only live for about two months which is just enough time for the females
to continue their legacy by laying eggs. With enough rainfall, these eggs typically hatch around December. Although the eggs themselves have been known to last for up to 15 years without hatching—which is great in areas experiencing prolonged droughts. San Diego County used to be home to more than 28,500 acres of vernal pool habitat. By the year 2001, fewer than 2,400 pools remained due to a rapid increase in development. Their preservation has
become a higher priority in recent years and thanks to the acquisition of Mountain Meadow Preserve by the Conservancy—in partnership with the county of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation and the United States Navy on behalf of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton—these pools will be protected in perpetuity. The Conservancy hopes to restore these pools and utilize them as part of future education programs. For more information, visit escondidocreek.org and sdparks.org.

Rotary recognizes ‘peacemaker’
HERBIE FLETCHER grew up surfing and skating in Huntington Beach in the early 60’s. Photo via Facebook
Catching up with surf royalty waterspot
was 14 years old, rolling my Makaha Skateboard down the ramp at Huntington Pier when a kid blew past me while doing a 360 turn. We didn’t meet then, but I would soon discover his name was Herbie Fletcher. A few years later we were introduced while surfing at the pier where he, being fast, stylish and fearless, had worked his way up in the ranks to become one of the top juniors on the scene. By 1967 Herbie became a surf media darling after starring in MacGillivray/ Freeman’s film, “Free and Easy.” Hair went longer and surfboards went shorter and I again caught up with Fletcher, this time in Maui where he was riding the first down railed boards and flying across sections at the world’s fastest wave, Maalaea. It was around that time Herb met Dibi Hoffman, the sister of Joyce Hoffman, who was then considered the best woman surfer in the world and daughter
of Walter Hoffman, a legendary surf pioneer and fabric importer/designer. While still in their early teens, the couple ran away to Oahu’s North Shore with no plan to create a life nobody ever imagined. They had a son named Christian and their dream world looked to have ended when a car T-boned the family on Kam Highway. Dibi and Christian survived with little damage while Herb’s leg had been so shattered that the doctors said they would have to cut it off, something comparable to Eric Clapton losing his fingers. When Herb refused the operation, a surgeon rescued the leg by bracing it with a metal plate, advising six-week hospital recovery time. Seven days later Herbie was out the door and healing in their Hawaiian home. The story between those days in the early 1970s and now is a fascinating one. Here are some of the highlights: Dibi Fletcher become a world-renowned artist and writer, Herbie invented moves like the side slip, surfing deck pads, and was at the forefront of the Longboard Renaissance; Christian become a surfing pioneer by blasting higher aerials than anyone thought possible; Nathan
distinguished himself in motocross and eventually became a big-wave master who has survived waves that would destroy most people; and Christian’s son, Greyson Thunder, became one of the world’s top skateboarders. All of this in a half-century, adrenaline-fueled blink. I caught up with Herbie and Dibi recently at their Astrodeck warehouse in San Clemente where Herb showed me his museum-quality surfboard collection, stacks of artwork and deck pads warehoused before being distributed internationally. The occasion for the reunion was a Planet X show I am hosting. During the show’s taping, Dibi mentioned how journalists, book authors, bloggers and filmmakers have portrayed the family as something they are not. Her response: “I’ll write the story myself.” The result is a beautiful coffee table tome titled, “Fletcher: A Lifetime in Surf.” While the book entertained and enlightened my surf-stoked soul, it left me hungry for more. That’s my way of requesting a second volume. “Fletcher: A Lifetime in Surf” can be ordered by visiting barnesandnoble.com.
CarMax settles environmental suit REGION — A $1.6 million settlement was announced June 16 in an environmental lawsuit filed against CarMax alleging illegal dumping of hazardous materials in dumpsters at company stores across the state, including two in San Diego County. The case was brought on by 16 District Attorney’s Offices throughout the state, including San Diego County, where stores in Kearny Mesa and Escondido were found to be out of compliance with hazardous materials and hazardous waste laws, according to San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan. A years-long undercover investigation found that materials such as auto body sanding dust,
sanding pads, automotive paints, clear coats, solvents, non-empty aerosols, and other hazardous substances used during the auto body repair process were unlawfully disposed at CarMax stores between 2014 and 2020, Stephan said. The settlement requires CarMax to pay $1 million in civil penalties and $300,000 for investigative costs, of which nearly $60,000 will go to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office. CarMax will also pay $300,000 to fund supplemental environmental projects furthering consumer protection and environmental enforcement in California, Stephan said. The settlement also
mandates training, reporting and compliance with regulations on handling hazardous materials and hazardous wastes. CarMax was cooperative throughout the investigation and implemented training and compliance programs at its stores as a result, Stephan said. “This settlement holds CarMax accountable for violating laws that are in place to protect the environment,” Stephan said. “These types of investigations and settlements are a reminder to corporations that they have a responsibility to be a good steward to our environment or face consequences.” — City News Service
ENCINITAS — People often don’t want to admit they have mental health issues. It takes a true peacemaker to publicly acknowledge their condition and move beyond their own struggles to help others with mental health problems, promote tolerance, and bring peace with alienated friends and family. The Encinitas Rotary Club 2020 Peacemaker Award recognizes Roger Alsabrook as just that person. In 2000, after losing friends and alienating family members, Alsabrook was diagnosed with manic depressive disorder, also known as bipolar disorder, and was prescribed medication. Bipolar disorder causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania) and lows (depression). After moving to Del Mar in 2005, Alsabrook sought group therapy treatment and discovered the San Diego Chapter of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA). He started attending the weekly DBSA peer-led support group meetings. Five years ago, he recognized the need for a nearby DBSA support group in North County, so he began hosting monthly meetings in Del Mar. Alsabrook facilitates discussion of issues challenging those with bipolar disorder, and family members are also welcome. He helps group members un-

derstand the crisis process and meets personally with families in crisis. He is a role model who shows with proper diagnosis and medications, a bipolar person can have a full, happy, and productive life. At support group meetings and speaking opportunities, Alsabrook shares his personal story to promote understanding and tolerance in coping with a mental health condition. He concealed his diagnosis until age 65, but then decided to use his experience to help others. One group member said “Roger encourages and inspires families living with mental illness by openly discussing his own personal diagnosis of bipolar, ignoring the stigma attached to mental illness. I’ve seen his success in helping others with family after family. We are very grateful for the harmony and understanding he has helped to restore
to our family.” The Encinitas Rotary Club Peacemaker Award annually recognizes community members who have made a significant difference in promoting tolerance, understanding, conflict resolution and peace, either locally or globally.

What’s the ‘dill’ with pickling?
y German grandmother had a large, gray crock in the basement of her Milwaukee bungalow, filled with smelly vinegar and lots of small cucumbers. When I was a young girl in the 1950s, I didn’t realize that she was carrying on the tradition of her German ancestors by making dill pickles. Many immigrant Midwestern housewives like my grandmother grew their own vegetables and preserved them by pickling or canning, simply because they lived on a very tight budget. I bought my first “Ball Book of Canning” and a box of Ball Jars in 1990, and proceeded to teach myself how to make pickles, jam and canned tomatoes when I lived on a small farm in Upstate New York. Often, our vegetable crops would start producing all at the same time and we would have a kitchen full of ripe tomatoes and bumpy cucumbers. In the light of our nation’s recent food crisis, it has occurred to me that others might like to learn about this hundred-year-old food processing method. In a recent New York Times article, writer Tim McKeough interviewed publisher Deborah Balmuth, of Storey Publishing in Pownal, Vermont, which has been publishing pamphlets and howto books since 1970. McKeough wrote: “As do-it-yourself activity surges during the pandemic, some of those seeking a guide to greater self-sufficiency may find their way to Storey Publishing.” If you would like to sample a variety of fermented and pickled products, rather than make your own, Happy Pantry in Carlsbad is a must-see shop and production facility. Mark and Rebekah Stogsdill are a husband-wife team with many years of experience in the restaurant

field. They began their food business, Happy Pantry, after researching age-old preserved food products, such as German sauerkraut, Asian kim chi and Slavic beet kvass. The kvass is produced in a process that was introduced in Slavic countries in the Middle Ages. Now, in the Happy Pantry kitchen, the beet kvass contains probiotics, which are said to promote “healthy gut health.” According to Happy Pantry’s owners, “One way to promote a healthy gut is to consume probiotic, rich unpasteurized fermented foods and beverages.” Bethany Dawson, product manager at Happy Pantry, explained, “The resurgence of fermented foods, such as the kombucha that we produce, can be helpful in promoting a healthy immune system, and provide an alternative to soda and coffee drinks.” The shop is located at 5611 Palmer Drive, Unit B in Carlsbad and products can be ordered at their website www.happypantry.com or by calling 858-449-4666. Their products are also available at local farmers markets. If pickled preservation production is something you would like to try at home, I recommend that you start off with a simple refrigera-

tor pickle. These cucumbers are preserved in salt and vinegar mixture and do not need to be processed in the traditional hot water bath canning method. But if you have tried this recipe and are ready to go on to the next step in food preservation, I recommend you buy “The Ball Book of Canning,” which is available in many hardware stores or online. This handbook, which was originally published in 1900, arrived hand-in-hand with the first production of the Ball Mason Jar. Not much as changed in the cookbook, with over 350 recipes for jams, preserved vegetables and fruit and meats, but the recipes might bring back fond memories of picnics or a trip to your grandmother’s kitchen. EASY REFRIGERATOR PICKLE This pickle recipe only takes about 15 minutes to prepare, and makes perfectly crisp and delicious pickles. Be certain to wash cucumbers well and remove stems. Small pickling cucumbers or English cucumbers work best for this recipe. INGREDIENTS • 1 1/2 cups water (use filtered or bottled water) • 3 tablespoons white

REGION — With more people spending time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, the city of San Diego launched a website June 16 that provides information and assistance on how to become a successful “urban farmer.” Urban farming can come in many forms and sizes. It can be vegetables grown in containers on a home patio, a community garden that covers one or more city blocks, or raising certain animals such as chickens or bees. The city’s new urban farming website includes: • Resources for both home and community gardens; • Information on raising bees, chickens and goats; • Access to additional data from various local and national sources; • Details about city programs for assistance with permits, composting, seed libraries and more.

By limiting classes to 10 children and maintaining strict separation between groups, in addition to frequent cleaning throughout the day, the ECE Lab School may resume operations, said Diane Studinka, a Child Development professor and Lab School liaison. “Our main purpose is to reopen for essential workers—to ensure that they have high-quality childcare and preschool services during this time,” said Studinka. “We have to maintain ratios of 10 children per classroom, so we’re going to be operating at around 60 to 70 children, at the most, during our initial phase.” Typically, the Lab School would employ 40 to 50 staff, but at reopening will have about half of that number on site. Studinka said parents are currently being surveyed to determine interest in returning.

Dear neighborhood liquor store Cheers! North County
miss the neighborhood liquor store. That is a weird sentence to write, and four months ago it might have encouraged me to do a little self-examination about my drinking habits. Today I’m a little more forgiving of myself, because, well, you know, pandemic. My local spot is in a narrow building. All the whiskey is right inside the sliding doors. The sunlight reflects through the bottles casting an amber pall over the entryway and a shopping cart filled with discounted bottles. When I enter, the man behind the counter might nod at me while looking up from his miniature television, but he might not. He’s always wearing a trucker cap, and sometimes he’s chewing on a cigar.

A straight shot only complicated by other customers. To pass, one of us will have to turn sideways while the other does a little shuffle dance to get by. I miss walking past the first few beer coolers knowing I’m probably not interested in the individual bomber bottles of beer. That trend has passed. I’d take note of what’s on the build-your-own six pack shelves, but I’ve learned that this place puts less than fresh beer there in hopes of selling it. So I usually avoid it.
Towering bookshelves reach the ceiling. Sours, imperial stouts and bourbon barrel-aged beers reside there in dark bottles with caps that have been dipped in colorful waxes to give them a classy look that might help me justify spending just a bit more. It feels a bit like walking through an art gallery. Sometimes I’ll lean in close to check out the label design and appreciate the color or font choice. I might snap a pic to text to a beer-loving friend as if to say, “Look what I found out here in the wild!” I’ll look for the price tag, chuckle, and move on until something else catches my eye.

The Coombers were beaming with ear-to-ear smiles to not only have guests back to their winery and tasting room, but with live music seven days a week as well. Skip said, “Being the CEO of California Music Lessons with over 200 instructors, it was important for us to support local musicians and no better way than performing at Coomber Craft Wines.” It was no surprise to Frank and me that the
first topic that Skip wanted to share was not about their delicious wines, but how Coomber Craft Wines has been supporting the Oceanside community during the COVID-19 pandemic and civil tensions. It was telling us what we knew all along, just how classy a guy Skip is and how important community is to him and Maureen. During the pandemic, Coomber has been open for home delivery, teaming up with neighbors Rim Talay and Rosewood Kitchen with Dinner for Two specials plus cost of wine and tax. This provided revenue for the restaurants and allowed Coomber to maintain wages for all sidelined hourly workers. Additionally, during this period of social unrest, Skip marched in peaceful protests knowing his community was hurting and reconciling feelings. The Coombers’ TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON B10

Revisiting the elegant and delicious Casa de Bandini lick the plate david boylan
will admit that the primary reason for past visits to Casa de Bandini in the Forum in Carlsbad has been motivated by the fabulous margaritas. I will touch on those again in this column, but the focus of a recent visit was the food. Specifically, the crazy good San German. Before I get into that, though, I should mention that Casa de Bandini is following all the San Diego County protocols for COVID-19 compliance for the safety of their employees and customers. That was quite evident upon arriving and good to see. So back to the San German as there is a bit of history around this visually striking dish that won first place at the International Ensenada Seafood Competition. It makes quite an entrance to the dining room on an oversized plate and the striking visual of a pineapple stuffed to the brim with shrimp. That shrimp is seasoned wild Pacific sautéed with butter, brandy, pineapple and combined with a creamy wine sauce over a bed of arroz Amarillo and, again, it seems like there are about 50 of them stuffed into the half pineapple. It’s served with achiote seasoned sautéed vegetables. I am not one to ever order pineapple on a pizza or combine it with anything savory for that matter, but this just seemed like it was worth exploring. And I’m glad I did — it was a very pleasurable mix of flavors and textures. Oh,

of La Pinta, pomegranate infused tequila on the side which I was told I could sip, or pour into my drink. I had to give it a sip and while I’m not a huge fan of flavored alcohol, this proved to be a smooth accessory to the margarita and when I poured it in, it gave it a beautiful burgundy hue. I counted 17 margaritas, including a “skinny margarita” for you calorie counters that’s made up of Sauza Hornitos Reposado, Cointreau and fresh lime juice, agave nectar, then shaken over ice. As a side note, the chips and salsa and guacamole that should accom-

Casa de Bandini relocated to its current Carlsbad location in 2009 from Old Town, where it had resided for over 25 years and built a huge following that has followed to the new location. One of San Diego’s more familiar sights was the long line of locals and visitors awaiting their traditional Mexican “fix” at the historic adobe built in 1829 that housed Diane Powers’ popular restaurant in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. Its Forum location in Carlsbad brings with it the
The Clase Azul is and did I mention it had what seemed to be like combined with Triple Sec, endless shrimp coming out sweet and sour, and a shot of that pineapple. I hate to say this, but I could not finish them all … but this was after devouring their amazing guacamole and chips and about half of my dining companion’s dish. I did take the shrimp home and they made a great lunch the next day. Our other entree was the Chile Verde consisting of pork carnitas sautéed in tomatillo sauce with onions and green peppers with arroz Mexicano, frijoles de la olla and, of course, their fabulous tortillas. We had their famous flan for dessert and that was amazing, of course. Before I run out of space here I would like to do a quick revisit on their famous margaritas.

trip over the cases of cans stacked randomly on the ground. I know these are the new arrivals that haven’t been put away yet. There might be a justcanned hoppy gem tucked away in there. I often check there first if I’m looking for an IPA or pale ale. Finally, I get to the sixpack cooler. Traditionally, about once a week I would stand here negotiating with myself. Do I want an amber ale or a pilsner? I really liked that one from Eppig Brewing last week, but maybe I should try something new? What was that one I read about from Rip Current? Maybe I could buy two sixers if the price is right. Oh, what’s that over there? I feel a bit like a raccoon who has stumbled into a tin can recycling center. I’d take my final choice up to the counter. The shopkeeper will grunt at me when the price pops up on the register. I give him
some money, and too quickly I’m out the door into the sunshine. On the walk home, I’ll start thinking about what I left behind, and making mental notes for next week. I guess what I really miss is the routine. It was one thing each week that I knew would be roughly the same, and that consistency brought me a weird sort of comfort in the form of retail therapy. A comfort I’m missing now. These days I find myself filling online shopping carts with beer from various local breweries or grocery stores, but it just isn’t the same. I’m looking forward to the day I can go stand there in flickering fluorescents, make my choices and come home with some delicious beer. We all have some little moment that we’ve been missing. I miss the liquor store, and that’s okay. Don’t forget to follow @ CheersNorthCounty on social media for more experiences of drinking in North County.
Oceanside Tasting Room is now open, following all protocols for guests and employees, with local performers scheduled by company president Will Burtner. The performers write their own music and are not just cover bands. Frank and I were dazzled with Whit Aadland’s “Historical Preservation” sound of past Sam Cooke and today’s Chris Stapleton, along with Beatles and Stevie Wonder favorites. Originals included “Killin Me to Stay” and “Can’t Find a Bed.” Local favorite Kimmi Bitter has also recently played at their venue. Skip was kind enough to open two bottles for us, the 2013 Private Reserve Sta. Rita Hills, Pinot Noir ($78) and 2013 Signature Collection Santa Ynez, Cabernet Sauvignon ($57). Both exceptional, the Pinot perhaps beyond exceptional with red cherry, raspberry and currant flavors. 50% new French oak barrels bring vanilla, allspice, cinnamon, mocha, clove, toffee and tannins with a unique chocolate finish (a killer must-try Pinot!). We had these two beauties along with a Benito’s pizza. Skip, Maureen and Will — Keep up the amazing work for your Oceanside community, wine club members and guests. Bravo, Bravo!

Welcome back tasting rooms in California! As I format the second story of this issue, I want to first echo the excitement, joy and relief Rico and I had in our first assignment since the coronavirus shutdown in early March. Coomber Craft Wines in Oceanside was a perfect urban winery for the two of us to return to form. Given the good news on the return of winery tasting rooms, I want to introduce our readers and viewers to a tucked away, brilliantly composed winery in Amador County, Jeff Runquist. Jeff Runquist Wines is a producer of single vine— Story by Rico Cassoni yard wines with red table
grapes that he chooses from throughout California. After 18 years of making wines for others, Jeff Runquist launched his own label with the 1995 vintage of the “Z” Zinfandel from Missoni vineyard in Amador. He now makes fabulous wines in slick bottles, from Zinfandel to Petite Sirah. Runquist has selected his grapes from vineyards that provide rich, full flavors. Runquist promises that “we will work very hard to produce balanced wines. Wines that will age and become more complex with time, but wines that can be enjoyed in their youth as well.”

The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $ 485,255.57. Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the total debt.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.
If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on this 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 (866)960-8299 or visit this Internet Web site http://www.altisource. com/MortgageServices/ DefaultManagement/ TrusteeServices.aspx using the file number assigned to this case 2020-00591-CA.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A plan you’ve kept on hold for a long time finally could be greenlighted. But in typical Aries form, you’ll need to be sure that everything is in place before you hit the “start” button. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Others might urge you to act more quickly on your ideas. But you’d be wise to follow your Bovine instincts and get more facts to bolster your position when you finally present it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might be tempted to accept the well-meaning offer of a friend to act as an intermediary in a dispute. But you know best what it’s about, and you can handle the challenge. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Entertainment can play an important role this week. Enjoy some well-earned diversion with people you care about. Something especially wonderful might come from this well-spent time. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Catnaps and playtime are in order for Leos and Leonas who need to take some time off from their hectic schedules to restore their energies and rebuild their mental muscles. Have fun. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Virgos will need to keep an open mind this week about choices that seem improbable. A closer study might well reveal possibilities that might have been overlooked. Stay with it.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A disappointing outcome of a well-intentioned effort should be seen as a lesson in how to do it right the next time. Note all your changes and have your new plan set up by week’s end. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your honest approach to an unsettling experience draws admiration from others. Use their positive feedback to build support for your program to introduce needed changes. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in his or her way. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A job-related situation could provide an opportunity you hadn’t considered before. Look it over carefully and see where and how you can tailor it to fit your needs. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Showing strength as well as sympathy helps you deal with a difficult personal matter. It also helps you set an example for others when it’s their turn to get involved in the situation. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of making people feel comfortable without losing one whit of your own dignity in the process. © 2020 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

standings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. Toll free numbers may or may not reach Canada.
