Oceanside business owners, city official rally behind Metroflex owner, urge reopening By Jordan P. Ingram
OCEANSIDE — A large crowd gathered for a rally in front of MetroFlex Gym on May 13 in Oceanside to voice their frustrations with statewide closures of non-essential businesses and to show support for the
gym’s owner Lou Uridel, who was arrested, fined and briefly jailed last week for reopening his gym in violation of the county’s health order due to COVID-19. In front of several media outlets and alongside a large group of supporters,
including Oceanside City Councilman Chris Rodriguez, Uridel announced the gym’s reopening on Wednesday afternoon. “I feel that I have to do what I feel is right in my heart and that’s to open my business and start things
going,” Uridel said. “We’re at a point now, on a decline, if we don’t open we won’t be able to recover.” Several attendees carried Trump flags and held political signs, but Uridel explained the event was not political.
“It’s not about politics, not about a president, it’s not about a governor,” Uridel said. “This about small businesses that need to reopen in order to put food on the table for our families. Politics aside… this is about something
can unite everybody together for the common good of their communities. The money generated from small businesses helps pay for things for everybody.” Since opening on FriTURN TO RALLY ON A11

REGION — Growing feelings of fury, frustration and desperation are sweeping through two North County school districts. Parents, students and even teachers in the Vista Unified and San Dieguito Union High school districts are pleading with their respective school boards and superintendents to offer hybrid grading criteria for students after schools went to distance learning models due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In early April, both districts implemented a credit/ no credit (pass/fail) policy, which does not record letter grades for students. In early April, the VUSD board passed its policy, while SDUHDS Superintendent Robert Haley made the decision granted under emergency authority. The opposition, meanwhile, is demanding an approach incorporating credit/no credit and letter grades.

As a result, the fallout rankled parents and students leading to the potential of recalling board members in VUSD. Parents in SDUHSD, meanwhile, have already served recall papers to two board of trustees, President Beth Hergesheimer and Joyce
Dalessandro. “There is a lot of misunderstandings,” VUSD parent Jana Anderson said. “This is a paradigm shift in the way we are doing everything. They made a decision very early, being proactive I think. Come to find out … 75% of the largest dis-
Equity among students A number of school districts in San Diego County, and the state, initially implemented the credit/no credit policy. Over the past several weeks, dozens have reversed course to allow parents and students the option of choosing between letter grades or credit/no credit. Carlsbad, San Marcos, Sweetwater, San Diego, Los Angeles, Fresno and dozens of others have switched to allowing for the option of grades. In addition to VUSD and SDUHSD, only Oceanside and Poway have kept a credit/no credit policy. In Vista and San Dieguito school districts, the boards and superintendents have championed the credit option as the fairest and most equitable option for all students.

With no large events, Del Mar Fairgrounds in dire straits By Lexy Brodt
DEL MAR — For decades, the Del Mar Fairgrounds would typically be spending this time of year preparing for its famous San Diego County Fair and summer horse race meets. But with COVID-19 among us, 2020 will look vastly different for the 340acre, state-owned property. Facing a 90% cut in their revenue streams with the cancellation of all events — including the San Diego County Fair — fairgrounds staff are worried they won’t be able to keep their doors open. “If we don’t have any money, what are we going to do?” said Del Mar Fairgrounds CEO Tim Fennell. The 22nd District Agricultural Association (DAA) — the fair’s operating body — is imploring the governor to approve critical emergency funds to the tune of $20 million in order to stay open. Fennell says such funds would likely get the fairgrounds through the rest of the year, assuming they will not be able to hold any large events in 2020. And without such emergency funding? “In the next three to four weeks, we’re going to be at a financial crossroads,” said Fennell. The fairgrounds’ business model relies almost entirely on revenue from large gatherings. Of the 22nd DAA’s $87 million annual revenues, 58% is derived from the annual San Diego County Fair. Food and beverage from horse racing contribute another 21%. The fairgrounds hosts more than 300 events per year, including trade shows, concerts, weddings and sporting events. All such gatherings have been canceled since the start of the crisis in March, and this reality will likely continue through summer – with no clear endpoint in sight. The 22nd DAA Board announced the postponement of the fair in early April after Gov. Gavin Newsom said the possibility of mass gatherings or sporting events in the summer was “unlikely.” With a $1.6 million

monthly payroll to maintain, a $74 million debt to pay off, and no sources of revenue on the horizon, the fairgrounds is facing quite the uphill battle. According to its April 27 letter requesting funding from the state, the association will no longer be able to pay its 156 state civil service employees or operating expenses by the end of May without assistance. The 22nd DAA isn’t currently considering laying off or furloughing permanent full-time employees, though they were able to reduce their temporary and seasonal workforce by 63% at the outset of the crisis. Fennell said furloughing state civil service employees can take at least five months – whereas a privately-owned fairgrounds like that of Los Angeles would be able to do so in a
number of days. “We certainly want to avoid that at all costs,” he said. Despite operating under such state-imposed limitations, the 22nd DAA doesn’t receive any tax revenue or budget allocations from the state – what Fennell says is a common misconception regarding the fairgrounds. Instead, the 22nd DAA functions as a self-funded entity, and runs more like a business than a section of government. Yet, along with other DAA’s in the state, the fairgrounds is considered part of state’s “critical infrastructure” and emergency response network. For example, the fairgrounds operate as an official evacuation site in the event of a local crisis. San Diego has seen this before during wildfire sea-
FTC warns against COVID-19 treatment claims REGION — The Federal Trade Commission announced May 7 that it has sent letters to nearly four dozen marketers nationwide, including four based in San Diego, warning them to stop making unsubstantiated claims that their products and therapies can treat or prevent COVID-19. The FTC identified those sent letters locally as ActiveHerb Technology, Inc.; Aspire Regenerative Health; EcoShield, LLC; and Forever Ozone. The letters are among 45 sent nationwide by the Federal Trade Commission in conjunction with its ongoing efforts to protect consumers from COVID-19-related scams, according to
the FTC. Several of the most recent batch of letters target “treatments,” including Chinese herbal medications, music therapy, homeopathic treatments and shields claimed to boost the immune system by protecting the wearer from electromagnetic fields, according to the FTC. A previous round of letters were sent to sellers of vitamins, herbs, colloidal silver, teas, essential oils and other products pitched as scientifically proven coronavirus treatments or preventatives, according to the FTC. In all, letters have been sent to nearly 100 companies and individuals,
according to the commission. In the letters, the FTC states that one or more of the efficacy claims made by the marketers are unsubstantiated because they are not supported by scientific evidence, and therefore violate the FTC Act. The letters advise the recipients to immediately stop making all claims that their products can treat or cure COVID-19. The letters also note that if the false claims do not cease, the commission may seek a federal court injunction and an order requiring money to be refunded to consumers. — City News Service
son – Fennell said the property housed 2,200 people and another 2,600 animals during the California wildfires in 2007. Fennell worries the fairgrounds might not be able to stay open to provide such assistance when wildfire season comes around again. “We need to be in a position where we can service the needs of the people of San Diego,” he said. With their request for assistance still up in the air, Fennell said staff is brainstorming how to keep the fairgrounds running for now – which will involve cutting as many expenses as possible, including renegotiating its bond debt. The 22nd DAA currently has less than $5 million in cash at its disposal– an amount that is quickly draining due to expenses vastly exceeding revenues.
Staff is starting to look at smaller events for the fall – contingent on the trajectory of the pandemic. At the 22nd DAA Board’s April meeting, Fennell brought up the idea of hosting a festival for a few weekends in the fall with music, food and rides – although such possibilities are “to be determined.” In the interim, the fair is still bringing in some revenue from its RV park, car rental spaces and golf driving range – which opened up last week. And although the word hasn’t been finalized, Fennell said the race track will keep horses running this summer, but with offsite betting only – which will allow the 22nd DAA to benefit from the handle (the total amount of money bet on a single race, day or season.) In light of a shaky and

uncertain future, Fennell is hoping San Diego residents will reach out to their local and state representatives to support funding for the fairgrounds. “We are self-funded, we are not receiving tax revenue…and we do not qualify for federal loans because we’re a state agency,” said Fennell. “I don’t want us to fall through the cracks.”

Destroying the town to save it
We the people
hould we open businesses “OR” stay safe? It is not an either/or answer – We can do both. It’s about moving from essential to safe. San Diego County can stay safe AND be open for business. We proved it with the essential businesses being open, and flattening the curve AND trends at the same time. We are a government of, for, and by the people. We the people of California, are facing the state’s new restrictions that hold our freedoms, our jobs and our economy hostage. As recently as May 7, the governor created a new unattainable goal for continuing, the effort of opening businesses. For non-compliance to an unattainable goal, he is threatening local governments that attempt to get people back to work with the loss of state tax funds (your dollars). He is threatening small businesses owners, who are only trying to survive, by revoking previously earned, and certified, professional licenses. Not only did he move the goal posts — he tore them down. For us to move beyond the current limited curbside business, the governor’s new order requires San Diego County to have no coronavirus-related deaths for 14 consecutive days. San Diego County, with a population of 3.3 million people, has little to no chance of achieving 14 consecutive days with zero COVID-related deaths. It is an impossible, unobtainable hurdle that will stagnate any forward progress toward moving beyond curbside retail. 97% of the unfortunate

not a furniture store, not an electronics store, nor a car dealership can be fully open for business. We the people can create safe environments within all our businesses. This isn’t a choice of either-or. We can get our economy going AND keep our county safe. I believe we need to continue to follow all of San Diego County’s health officers’ personal safety protections. We need to allow more non-essential businesses to open. Law enforcement should focus on health protection orders. Not unattainable orders. Businesses should set the gold standard of health safety. Empowering all their employees to enforce health and safety regulations. I’m calling for the safe opening of retail stores beyond curbside pickup, to the safe opening of restaurants for dining in, and the safe opening of offices and large retail warehouse business. I’m asking our Sheriff and law enforcement officers to prioritize enforcement of safety guidelines at all businesses, rather than essential versus non-essential. We can open businesses AND be safe. And I’m calling on complete local control. Let Gov. Newsom know — we the people will rise to this challenge. We the people can stay healthy, we the people can follow personal health guidelines AND we the people can safely be open for business.
deaths in San Diego County related to coronavirus had underlying health complications. Of the 175 San Diego County coronavirus-related deaths to date, six were due solely to the virus. In order to open businesses, we must continue to protect our most vulnerable and abide by our public health officer’s personal protection orders of the masks, gloves, social distancing, and hand washing. We the people have done what is asked of us: We, not the government, flattened the curve. We, not the government, reduced the trend. We, not the governor, want to stay healthy AND see our economy thrive. We now have, over 25% unemployment in San Diego County. The people making the decisions to keep your businesses closed are all collecting their pay, pensions and health benefits. We the people can stay healthy, abide by the personal protection requirements AND be open for business. Government can’t run a business. Government can obviously ruin them, but not run them.

n Feb. 7, 1968, writing about the Battle of Ben Tre in Vietnam, journalist Peter Arnett sent what was to become an iconic dispatch: “‘It became necessary to destroy the town to save it,’ a United States major said today. He was talking about the decision by allied commanders to bomb and shell the town regardless of civilian casualties, to rout the Vietcong.” Contemporary politicians and government officials seem to be taking a similar approach to the COVID virus. Responsible, hard-working Americans are lining up at food banks to feed themselves and their children. Some stand to lose their homes. Some businesses, and perhaps even entire industries, will never recover. We have allowed government officials to bring the American economy to its knees and to drive individuals and families to the brink of financial ruin, if not completely over the precipice thereof. They have decided to destroy the town in order to “save” it from a virus; to implode the economy regardless of financial casualties in order to rout out
a virus that has produced a death toll commensurate with and slightly exceeding that of the flu. Every business is someone’s livelihood. Every business is essential. In a misguided, inordinate, exaggerated attempt to insulate the most vulnerable from the virus, the economy has been crippled. The “essential” politicians and government functionaries who are making and enforcing these decisions have their jobs. They are receiving taxpayer-funded paychecks while they determine which businesses are purportedly “essential” and which are not. They could have allowed the least vulnerable to function as close to normal as possible while pursuing strategies to protect the most vulnerable. Instead, their policies have become an economic carpet bombing. And then there are the everyday inanities. It would make no sense to say, “You can shop in the supermarket, but you can’t park your car there while you’re in the store.” Yet here in Carlsbad we are finally allowed to go to our beaches, but we are not allowed to drive to
them and park. Presumably we are to flood the adjacent neighborhoods with our cars or not go at all. We may now transit the beaches, but we are not permitted to sit on them. We may go into a supermarket dozens if not hundreds at a time, but we may not enter our churches. Enough is enough. Life is precious. Life has risks. I am a 68-year-old retired FBI agent. I accept the risk. I am willing to take ordinate precautions to protect myself and others. I am not willing to see government functionaries cripple the American economy, financially ruin businesses and individuals, or circumscribe my life and liberty in order to “protect” me. We are not sheep to be herded by government shepherds. Politicians and taxpayer-paid civil servants are not our masters. Yet they seem to think they are the adults in the room, and we are the children. The inanity, the over-reaction, the inordinate control, the overweening suppression of individual liberty must stop. William Espino Carlsbad
Give our students a choice
or our San Dieguito Union High School District School Board Trustees, managing education through the global COVID-19 pandemic will be the most important test of their educational and political career. Their legacy will be defined on how they led/governed through this crisis. While there is no precedent for managing education in a global pandemic, there is a precedent that establishes the District as high performing and demonstrates that our students are prepared for the next level. Given this elevated status, it is unbelievable that the District chose a “Credit/ No Credit” grading policy. The minute our students hit junior high they are bombarded with planning for college and the importance of grades on future success. This pressure is not restricted to the straight A students, AP students or the elite, it is applied to all students. Our students use grades for all sorts of reasons; to motivate or demotivate, to receive kudos, to please the adults, to torture the adults, to stand out above their peers, to demonstrate rebellion, to be the first in their family to go to college and on and on. Grades for the high school student are the very fabric of what drives them to achieve a goal. Students work really
hard for a variety of reasons: to secure the highest GPA possible to get into elite Colleges, to apply for Merit Scholarships, to just work really hard to get a 3.0 GPA so they can get to a UC campus, or to work to get 2.0 GPA so they can participate on the athletic field or play tuba in the band. What makes SDUHSD special is the push given our students to excel, be better — improve your grades, improve yourself and soar. Now — they are being asked to do the work, but not receive a grade? One thing we can all agree on, no one knows the best answer. So, let’s err on the side of caution and allow a choice, the same choice being given by UC system schools to their students and private colleges like USC. Give the same choice
as the high school students in the three largest school districts in the state (LA Unified, San Diego Unified, Fresno Unified) and many of San Dieguito’s peers, Los Gatos/Saratoga, Alameda, Sacramento Unified, Sweetwater UHSD and Corona Norco, to name a few, being offered a choice of a grade with a hold harmless clause. As leaders, this Board has taken an extremely short-sighted (almost panicked) view and crafted a plausible excuse to justify their lack of decision. It is time to consider the short, mid- and long-term ramifications on the psyche of a young mind. Demand our School Board give our students the choice to continue to soar. Wendy Gumb SDUHSD Parent

Cardiff School rebuild gets final approval for boundary adjustment By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — After months of drawn-out appeals and lawsuits, the Cardiff School District received final approval from the California Office of Grants and Local Services (OGALS) and the National Park Service (NPS) to move forward with construction at its Cardiff School campus. Committed to halting progress until it gained approval from NPS, the district will move forward

credit option, a student needs a 60% or higher, although the letter grade will not appear on a student’s transcript and it cannot be lower from March 13 when schools closed and transitioned to distance learning. Letter grade policies, such as in Carlsbad Unified, also do not allow a grade to drop from the March 13 starting point. Both districts have said the credit option allows disadvantaged students, especially those pre-pandemic, the best opportunity to obtain a passing “grade.” Those students come from lower-income households where parents work several jobs and may not have access to a wireless internet connection. In Vista, 63% of students are classified as low income, while SDUHSD has a population of about 10%. Districts, though, have distributed laptops and helped many lower-income families with wireless internet connections to service those students. Vargas said there is no best policy, only guidelines given by the California Department of Education giving school districts local control. He added some parents have been demanding the option for grading and credit/no credit. Vargas said it creates a two-tier system where one group is able to earn grades and boost their GPA, while another group remains stagnant as it relates to GPA. “From students who are going through the death of a loved one, to families who are in financial distress and others who are simply trying to survive in this environment,” Vargas said,” there will be student regression in academics regardless of grading policies, but I am confident that if given the resources, our staff will rise to the challenge. Specifically to our board policy, under a credit/no credit policy, a student’s GPA will not be lower under this policy.” Anderson and attorney Seema Burke, who has kids in both districts, said the “equity” argument falls flat and assumes disadvantage students are not succeeding in school and don’t want a choice between a grade or credit. “We said how about we take the grades they had on March 13 and give students those grades,” Burke
fiercely opposed any designs that build on the park’s boundaries, claiming a 1993 federal grant agreement requires the park remain in perpetuity. In a lawsuit filed in January 2019, the Cardiff Preservation Society and it’s “Save the Park” campaign called on the district to halt all construction to explore its impact on the surrounding community and environment. As recently as January, “Save the Park” represen-
tatives doubted whether the district would receive the necessary NPS approval; with the recent approval, they now question the manner in which the NPS consented to said boundary adjustments. Additionally, Eleanor Musick of the “Save the Park” campaign claims the settlement reached in March between the district and “Save the Park” never disposed of the court’s initial ruling of CEQA non-compliance.
“The project is still out of compliance with California environmental laws,” Musick said. “[It] violates an express condition for approval by the NPS.” The group believes the district threatened legal action against the NPS, although Musick says the group does not yet possess legal documents to prove such an accusation. “There was a threat hanging there,” Musick
said. “And then as long as they are continuing to get credit, which is D-level work, then they are able to show the grades through March 13. It’s a really ugly assumption made about low-income or disadvantage families that none of their kids had grades that they would want to show or are college-bound.” Jane O’Hara VUSD Superintendent Matt Doyle referred quesParent of SDUHSD student tions to one of his community announcements outlin“They got their grades of directors.

trators. Those points also impact scholarship, merit funding and other financial aid opportunities for students. “This is important because when colleges and universities consider students, they look at the school profile,” Vargas said. “Students in a school profile are compared to students within the same school district. This is important to note because when you have school districts that have grading choice, students that opted for grades will have a boosted GPA versus those who went with credit/no credit. “While I don’t believe there is a perfect solution, Credit/No Credit is a balanced approach to ensure no student’s GPA is brought down and that we all move forward in an equitable manner.”
Haley, meanwhile, echoed those sentiments and said state schools are providing flexibility for incoming freshmen. “Every institution of post-secondary institution we have contacted has said students, regardless of the grading system in place will not be negatively impacted by the spring 2020 semester,” he added. “I believe the Spring 2020 semester will result in significant changes in how post-secondary institutions look at the admissions process. UC Berkeley after instituting credit/no credit allowed students to petition for grades, if their professor agreed, however, said those grades would not be used for internal UC decisions.” For more about the issue, listen to the North County Beat Podcast hosted by Kelli Kyle.

No static from Scott Kaplan’s Solana Beach studio sports talk jay paris
cott Kaplan isn’t on radio but he’s coming through loud and clear. “I’m happy that I kept it going,’’ Kaplan said. Kaplan, the onetime, longtime Mighty 1090 sports talk radio host is still sounding off. “This has kept me relevant locally and nationally,’’ Kaplan said. Kaplan’s career maintained its pulse by him pushing furniture around. Some great friends convinced him to convert a room at his Solana Beach residence into a recording studio, after the plug was yanked on the Mighty 1090 last year. From Kaplan’s cozy confines, “The Scott & BR Show” marches on with a podcast and a video that is seen on YouTube, Facebook and just about any other media platform Kaplan unearths. “I didn’t know what I was doing, but some people

helped me out,’’ Kaplan admitted. “This has kept me visible for other opportunities.’’ Momentum was gathering with Kaplan’s home endeavor. Kaplan, a nonstop networker, also had other coals in the campfire. But
with the podcast turning the corner, around the bend was COVID-19. Kaplan, who covers the NFL for Westwood One radio, wasn’t fazed. He kept doing what he does best: talking sports, yapping about kids and chewing the
fat about a world turned upside down. While COVID-19 halted athletics, it couldn’t silence Kaplan. As others groused about zero games, Kaplan, 50, cleared his throat. Minus him being connected to a scoreboard,
Kaplan makes points with tales of what makes life spin. “It hasn’t been hard at all to produce content,’’ Kaplan said. “I like to tell stories about the athletes rather than stories about the games or statistics. “Plus, there’s been enough big sports stories to talk about. But in the world of podcasting we’re not particularly committed to that as we would be if at a radio station. We have the flexibility to talk about what we want.’’ The 90-minute podcast produced by Alex Padilla is nearing its 200th episode and a tribute to Kaplan’s ingenuity and perseverance. It also revealed his flexibility when he recently added a 25-minute condensed version. “People are listening, and it’s kept me in the game,’’ Kaplan said. When 1090 went dark, Kaplan saw the light of renewal. He attempted to resurrect 1090 but kept a keen eye for other avenues of revenue, like sided.co, an audience-engagement platform centered on spirited debates. Still, radio frequency remains a frequent topic. Although after trying to
ride to 1090’s rescue with fresh investors, Kaplan sought a white flag in July. Then, at the Super Bowl, a colleague connected Kaplan with a North County radio insider interested in digging 1090 from its grave, with a twist. The shows wouldn’t generate from a central studio, instead the hosts and guests contribute remotely. The engineering would be off-site as well, and just maybe the Mighty 1090 simmers this summer. “We’re meeting daily and trying to figure out the last part of it,’’ Kaplan said. “In reality, it would be an opportunity to add an additional platform for the podcast and one that we are well known on.’’ Kaplan is optimistic about 1090’s rebirth. “Whenever people can start going back to games, going to casinos, traveling, whenever those things happen,’’ Kaplan said, “we want to already be established.’’ “The Scott & BR Show” planted its flag in 2001. Its vision in 2020 might again include 1090. Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com. Follow him @jparis_sports.
Escondido police officer invents board game By Hoa Quach

ESCONDIDO — Brandon Byler said he understands stress well. After all, he has proudly protected the community as a member of the Escondido Police Department for 15 years. In recent weeks, he’s also had to work around the pandemic while helping his terminally ill brother, who is also a police officer. To deal with the stress that comes with the uniform, Byler said he took to game boards — playing with longtime friend and San Diego police officer Matt Ruggiero. “By working in patrol

divisions for as long as we have, we are constantly thrust into corrosive and stressful environments,” Byler said. “Maintaining mental health has become an increasingly important issue in police work and Matt and myself found our outlet playing board games and having that face to face quality time on a weekly basis. It’s often a venting session and an outlet to relieve stress.” Their love for game boards compelled the duo to create one themselves. Byler and Ruggiero are the masterminds behind Code 3, an ’80s-themed game board about cops. “Matt and I determined that there really were no good 'cop games,’ ” Byler said. “Furthermore, to keep it tongue in cheek and away from any social issues, we decided to set it in an overthe-top world of ’80s action movies. “That way it's fun enough and light enough for the family to play. It definitely has a sense of humor and there are numerous inside jokes that are specific to police work.” The game consists of about 30 police officers who are represented in a deck of cards. Players select two officers and an “adventure” to play against. “These scenarios are typically some sort of crime boss that players must work cooperatively together to take down,” Byler said. “We created a game that

we want to play. Whatever style of game you like to play, you will be able to find interesting combinations of beat partners to combine and create unique strategies with. “Our goal was to create a sandbox game with near infinite replay ability.” The game is currently in its first print run in China and will soon be available for purchase on blackkeyg-
ames.com. Although, the duo hope players enjoy their game — they also plan to donate a portion of proceeds to police charities and causes, including to Byler’s own brother. Brett Byler, a fellow police officer in Escondido, was recently diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Loved ones and fellow police officers are currently raising money to support
Brett Byler’s family on fundraising platform GoFundMe (gofundme.com/f/byler-family). “Matt and I are going to continuously donate a portion of our profit to police charity as long as the game remains in print,” Byler said. “In light of the new struggles with my brother, we also plan on the game being in support of him and dedicated to him.”

Carlsbad OKs Buena Vista Lagoon project By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Buena Vista Lagoon is one step away from a complete makeover. The Carlsbad City Council unanimously approved a modified saltwater option, which consists of transitioning the current freshwater lagoon into saltwater, during its May 12 meeting. Plans call for the removal of a wooden weir (dam) and adding a 100-foot wide inlet to allow seawater into the lagoon. Keith Greer, principal planner for the San Diego Association of Governments, said the final step is for the SANDAG Board of Directors to approve the plan at its May 22 meeting. “What we’re seeing is a fully functional saltwater system,” Grier said during his presentation.
The process has been more than a decade in the making, Councilman Keith Blackburn said. The issue has been contentious, at times and even within the past year, as Carlsbad, Oceanside, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, residents and other groups have battled over the direction of the lagoon. Several years ago, Greer and SANDAG took over as the lead agency for the environmental impact report and putting together options. He said the growth of cattails and bulrushes have harmed the health of lagoon, which is why four options were presented to the council in November 2017. The challenge, he said, was the ownership of the lagoon and the weir. Oceanside, Carlsbad, CDFW, con-
servation groups and two homeowners associations, along with five easements claimed rights. Blackburn said every entity involved presented different options making negotiations too much to handle. “I was part of this group 10 years ago,” Blackburn said. “We spent a lot of time going nowhere. Keith (Greer) said he would take on the responsibility of the EIR. That was a huge, huge game changer. I think we’d still be in a room heading in 20 different directions if it wasn’t for Keith.” Regardless, the modified option will create a saltwater lagoon west of Interstate 5 and a saltwater marsh east of the freeway. Still, the project nearly came to a halt in November 2018 when a group of resi-
dents requested SANDAG delay its vote for six months so the residents could continue to negotiate. Mayor Matt Hall said he was expecting the issue to end in litigation. Still, the parties came to an agreement on the modified saltwater option. As part of the deal, Carlsbad, Oceanside, CDFW and SANDAG will own the new easements at no cost to the property owners. As for the timeline, Greer said the funding is not in place, although several sources have been identified. Additionally, construction will not start for at least one year, perhaps longer, he added. “We hope to get funding in the next year,” Greer explained. “It’s a very viable alternative and very good alternative.”
REGION – More than 200 newsrooms across the United States and Canada, including the Los Angeles Times and Voice of San Diego, were awarded nearly $16 million in grants from Facebook’s Journalism Project in the wake of COVID-19. After receiving more than 2,000 applications, Facebook’s COVID-19 Local News Relief Fund Grant Program handed out $10.3 million to 144 U.S. news organizations, providing much-need financial support to publishers negatively impacted by the ongoing health crisis. Individual grant awards ranged from $25,000 to $100,000. Additionally, participants in the Facebook Local News Accelerator program, which focuses on memberships and subscriptions, were eligible to receive $5.4 million. Each of these initiatives is part of the social media company’s broader $100 million global investment in news organizations. The company’s journalism campaign launched in January, after the social media behemoth vowed to fight misinformation and “fake news” on its platform. Facebook came under fire by lawmakers after Russian groups used the site to purchase ads to spread misinformation and discord during the 2016 presidential election. The grant program comes at a critical time for struggling news agencies who have lost valuable ad-
vertising revenue due to closures of non-essential businesses and stay-athome orders. On May 1, The Los Angeles Times, which received a total award of $225,000 from both Facebook grant programs, announced it had reached an agreement with its newsroom guild, Media Guild of the West, to cut both hours and wages from nearly 440 journalists for three months. California Times, the parent company of The Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune, permanently closed three of its weekly newspapers — Burbank Leader, Glendale News-Press and La Cañada Valley Sun — and laid off 14 staff members, citing significant losses in advertising revenue. All three newspapers were later purchased by Charlie Plowman. Starting April 3, the Union-Tribune and its nine community newspapers began downsizing staff by offering buyout options to allow some employees an opportunity to leave on their own terms, according to a Times of San Diego article. Voice of San Diego, a donation-based digital news source, also received $96,250 from Facebook’s COVID-19 Relief Fund Grant program. Other news outlets receiving grants include the San Francisco Chronicle ($150,000) and Denver Post ($150,000). The Coast News submitted an application for a grant but did not receive funding.

Food drive for active duty military, vets draws crowd By Caitlin Steinberg
OCEANSIDE — On Friday, May 8, nearly 500 cars filled with the families of active duty service members and veterans, lined up at the Veterans Association of North County to receive donated fresh food and toiletries. Holding its second food drive since the onset of coronavirus, the Veterans Association of North County (VANC) served over 1,816 individuals with an army of over 70 volunteers in under 3 hours. Volunteers wearing personal protective equipment spent the afternoon lifting bags of fresh fruits and vegetables into the popped trunks of cars moving through the line. An Oceanside 501(c) (3) non-profit organization created to provide active-duty military, veterans, and their families, VANC is a resource for jobs, education, and medical assistance among other much needed services. News of recent food drives traveled rapidly by word of mouth through their 27 different associate veterans organizations. Executive Director of the VANC, Lori Brody, compared the Association’s most recent successful drive to a “well-oiled machine.” “We served 60 cars every 20 minutes, handing out fresh food and nearly 508 packages of diapers to families,” Brody said. “We learned quickly, it went smoothly, and we definitely had it down by the second time around.” VANC volunteer and Marine Corps veteran, Chris Ramirez and his wife joined in handing out food to families on May 8. “It was such a great event and day. Everyone was so grateful.”
“There were people who put signs in their trunks so when we opened them up to place their food inside, there was a thank you note waiting,” Ramirez said. “A lot of those families came through with little kids in car seats and when we’d open the trunk, we’d see the kids waving back at us.” One of the most appreciated items given to families was diapers. In times of uncertainty, nationwide shortages on diapers and other toiletries have left many families scrounging for alternatives, a need VANC has sought to fill. Lorena, a wife of an active-duty sailor aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt, received food and diapers on Friday, reiterating how grateful she was for VANC’s donations. “I heard about them from another military spouse who shared the food drive’s information in April,” Lorena said. “They gave such a good amount of food that I was able to share with another military family [whose service member] undergoing can-

cer treatment.” “It puts my mind at ease knowing that there’s an organization that’s willing to help the military community,” Lorena said. Those interested in registering for the next
food drive on June 12 must do so at least one week prior and can expect a similar process to the first two drives. “Any veterans or active-duty can sign up by applying online at VANC.
me/food,” Brody said. “They’ll register how many are in their families, whether they need diapers and what size, etc.” “Then VANC creates an alphabetical list and assigns a drive through time for each family, gives them a window decal with their information, and they’ll move through the food stations from start to finish, in about 8 minutes,” Brody said. Veterans Association of North County has their process down to a science,

handing out bags of apples, oranges, potatoes, onions, broccoli, cabbage, and bread among other fresh food goods donated from San Diego Foodbank. The only item they are in need of is peanut butter. “All of our active-duty are requesting peanut butter. Turns out, it’s like gold,” Brody said, laughing. “If you know of anyone with large stores of peanut butter, send them our way.” For now, service members and their families who have sacrificed for the safety of all American can always count on at least one place for assistance in these uncertain times.

Cardiff bike lanes draw critisicm By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — After several weeks of construction, Encinitas’ Highway 101 Project is nearly finished, changing the way cyclists and pedestrians access local beaches and travel along the 101 and sparking debate among residents. Low concrete barriers establish a protected lane for cyclists by separating north and southbound shoulders from traffic lanes, in full compliance with state and federal traffic guidelines. However, pedestrians unfamiliar with the new traffic patterns have increasingly drifted into the bike lane, creating confusion and frustration among cyclists. Mayor Catherine Blakespear related the city’s desire to balance the interests and safety of all residents. “It’s a safety-driven project,” Blakespear said. “We want everybody to be safe… to still provide for vehicular traffic but also for bikes and pedestrians.” Vice President of Swami’s Cycling Club, Rob Klingensmith, disagreed with the new lane’s construction entirely. “This is not a path for sport cyclists,” Klingensmith said, sport cyclists differing from recreational cyclists in their speed, skill, and intention on the road. “Our members were never going to ride inside a curbed, constrained path filled with pedestrians and without any safe way to pass,” Klingensmith said. “Swami’s members will occupy the number two, [sharrow], lane… and we’re certain that other clubs and cycling groups will do the same.” Acknowledging that while sports cyclists may not find the new bike lane to their liking, Blakespear said recreational cyclists, those leisurely biking to Encinitas beaches and local restaurants, will find the lane much safer for families. “The city is trying to create safe public spaces for people to bike and walk places,” Blakespear said. “We have this amazing cli-

mate and an outdoorsy, active population of people who crave this. This project, along with the rail trail, is a key part of accomplishing that.” Last week, as a part of the bike lane’s construction, the city commissioned

a speed study in an effort to reduce the speed of traffic on the 101 from 45 miles per hour to either 35 or 30. Many residents, including Encinitas mayoral candidate Julie Thunder, have publicly spoken out against the new bike lane. Thunder expressed concerns with the speed of highway traffic, and both a lack of signage and general public awareness, among other issues. “It’s just too dangerous for cyclists to be right next to cars going that fast,” Thunder said, criticizing
the Highway 101 project’s entire premise. “This project was not needed,” Thunder said. “There were no repairs needed to be done, no public cry to fix the road or make it safer. It had been relatively safe for years. They’ve spent $800,000 on a project that wasn’t needed when the money could’ve been spent on other more important things. “Now you’ve got people on cruiser bikes going slow in the sharrow lane, people walking in the cycle track… surfers and their boards, people with their dogs,” Thunder said. “It’s a mess.” Thunder stressed the city’s need to clearly and publicly designate each lane for pedestrians or cyclists to prevent the rising number of accidents. The Coast News could not verify the number nor cause of accidents within the new bike lanes. However, both Thunder and Swami’s Cycling Club claim at least four cycle-related accidents have occurred since the lane’s construction began in April. During Blakespear’s most recent Facebook Live event on May 9, a resident asked whether Encinitas was a biking or beach community, and if the city should cater to pedestrians or cyclists.

“We can be a beach town and a bike town,” Blakespear said. “This project is aimed at people going to the beach on bike or on foot. We have two beautiful state beaches, but we didn’t have a way for people to safely get there without facing parking issues or to get between the two existing rail trails. This gives people that safety.” “It’s giving joy to residents right now when we’re cooped up inside and have so many other amenities closed around us,” Blakespear said. “The joy in being able to ride our bikes down to the beach.” In the weeks leading up to summer, Blakespear confirmed the city will both decrease traffic speed and increase signage to better spread community awareness of how to properly use the new bike lane. After multiple discussions at the city’s Traffic and Public Safety Commission in September 2019, the Highway 101 Project was brought to City Council for public debate. The project passed unanimously, but with opposition from some cyclists. The city also voted unanimously to designate the outermost lanes of the 101 as “sharrows,” or shared lanes for both cyclists and vehicles.
REGION — Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, billions of dollars are being funneled to jurisdictions throughout the country to help them cope with the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the vast majority of cities are ineligible for such assistance, as the established Coronavirus Relief Fund is specifically reserved for jurisdictions with populations of over 500,000. San Diego is the only city in the county that stands to receive federal funding due to this limitation. Now North County cities are speaking out for a lower threshold — particularly as many anticipate a significant decline in revenue for this fiscal year and the year to come. On May 7, U.S. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) and nine mayors from Del Mar to San Juan Capistrano announced their call for direct federal funding for smaller jurisdictions. “While the CARES Act included funding for states and large cities, it wasn’t enough, and it’s time for House and Senate leadership to rectify that,” Levin said in a press release. “The next Coronavirus relief package that Congress passes must provide more money to cities, and it must set aside funding for cities with fewer than 500,000 residents.” Jurisdictions pitching in to the call include Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, San Clemente, Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano. In a letter addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in late March, Levin said the impact to such small and medium-sized cities is “immediate and stark.” “Key revenue sources such as sales tax and transit occupancy tax have been dramatically
reduced as consumer and visitor-serving activity has come to a standstill,” he wrote. This reality is particularly true for coastal cities like Del Mar that typically see a significant uptick in revenue during the summer, beachgoing months. Del Mar is anticipating a $2,300,000 revenue loss between March and June alone — in large part due to hotels being shut down and sales tax revenue plummeting. The city usually sees a significant spike in sales tax revenue in June due to the San Diego County Fair — which has been canceled this year. Del Mar is taking steps to ease their losses, cutting expenditures by nearly $2 million for this fiscal year. But Mayor Ellie Haviland hopes the city will receive some extra assistance to deal with what lies ahead. “Cities provide essential services that are really important, not only to public health and public safety, but also to the economic engine we’re going to need to get started here,” said Haviland. And Del Mar is certainly not alone in its struggles — Encinitas is projecting a loss of over $6 million in the current and coming fiscal year, and Oceanside is looking at a $8.5 million reduction in revenue for the fiscal year to come. At an April 14 City Council meeting, Carlsbad anticipated a loss in sales tax revenue of $3.2 million for April alone. Solana Beach staff have projected a loss of over $1 million over this fiscal year and the next. In an email to The Coast News, Solana Beach Mayor Jewel Edson noted that smaller cities also “need and deserve a fair share of the federal aid.” “We must continue to care for our populations and provide services for our residents in an environment of ever-increasing costs and declining revenues,” she said.

Oceanside Independence Parade canceled By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Independence Parade, which attracts thousands of onlookers and participants each year, has been canceled this summer. The MainStreet Oceanside Independence Parade Committee announced the parade’s cancellation on May 6. The parade is usually held on the Saturday prior to July 4 and was scheduled this year for June 27. According to Parade Committee Chair Cathy Nykiel, the committee based its decision mostly around the restrictions on mass gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nykiel said the parade attracts between 12,000 and 20,000 people who watch the parade. The parade, which usually lasts over two hours, has between 120 and 140 participating groups, and the size of each of those groups can vary between 5 and 125 people. There are also 100 volunteers who help with the parade each year. “Everything is kind of focused around group gatherings,” Nykiel said. “We want to comply and make sure everyone is safe and well.” The Parade Committee has discussed alternatives to the parade, such as a community parade sometime in the future, but how and when such a parade would take place will be determined by the pandemic and

whether stay-at-home orders are still in place. The Oceanside Independence Parade has been a local tradition since 1892. MainStreet Oceanside has also had to close its weekly Farmers Market and the Sunset Market as well in response to COVID-19. Nykiel said MainStreet has been working with the city to come up with a safe
alternative to the Farmers Market. MainStreet also created a “virtual Sunset Market” webpage that lists the market’s vendors and provides their contact information so customers can reach out. MainStreet Oceanside has also started an Oceanside Strong Campaign that is raising money to provide downtown businesses “mi-
crogrants” between $250 and $1,000 to assist with utility bill payments and other smaller items that come up. Nykiel said the goal is to raise between $25,000 and $30,000 for that campaign. Additionally, MainStreet Oceanside created an online shopping guide to local retail stores and a togo food guide for downtown restaurants as well.
CARLSBAD — Carlsbad-based Callaway Golf Co. on May 11 announced a $100,000 donation to the nonprofit humanitarian aid organization MedShare for its COVID-19 response work. MedShare delivers surplus medical supplies and equipment to communities around the world. The organization is providing personal protective equipment and other medical supplies to health care workers and patients battling COVID-19. Since the U.S. became the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, MedShare has donated more than 1.3 million units of equipment to more than 140 hospitals, community clinics and other nonprofit organizations nationwide,
according to the organization. “We appreciate Callaway Golf's generous support of our COVID-19 relief efforts,” said MedShare President and CEO Charles Redding. “The impact of COVID-19 on our communities and our health care professionals has been significant. This donation will further enhance our efforts to get personal protective equipment and other critical supplies to the health care professionals who need it the most.” Callaway Golf President and CEO Chip Brewer said the company is “proud to support MedShare and their ongoing relief efforts with this donation.

Leg Vein Disease: Symptoms and Treatment Options
Dr. Adam Isadore,
MD, DABR Vascular & Interventional Radiologist Board Certified Vein Specialist Oceana Vein Specialists Oceanside, CA
Did you know that the #1 cause of leg pain is due to vein disease? More than 25 percent of people in the United States suffer from vein disease or varicose veins. Symptoms can have a wide range of severity depending on the extent of disease. Some people may just have a few isolated spider veins while others may have painful, bulging varicose veins. Varicose veins are surface veins that are enlarged, swollen and/or bulging due to underlying vein disease. If left untreated, varicose veins can lead to more serious concerns over time due to the progressive nature of the disease. Varicose veins often progress over time and are worsened by prolonged standing, pregnancy, or excessive weight. Along with being unsightly and painful, varicose veins and vein disease can cause a wide range of
signs and symptoms including; • Leg pain/aching/cramping • Leg itching/burning/numbness • Skin changes/discoloration/ ulceration • Leg restlessness • Leg swelling/heaviness • Varicose veins or Spider veins If you are experiencing any of these listed symptoms, you may be suffering from chronic venous insufficiency and likely would benefit from a consultation with a vein specialist.

imally invasive techniques. Patients are able to resume normal activity immediately after the procedure without missing a day of work,” Isadore said.

can use their housing on an equal basis as everyone else. Therefore, when an individual tests positive for COVID-19, they may experience breathing problems, fatigue, and other symptoms, labeling them as a person with a disability and entitling them to a reasonable accommodation. Examples of reasonable accommodations for household members that have contracted COVID-19 include deadline extensions to complete yardwork or other household maintenance, acceptance of late paperwork, or the appointment of another person to handle their tenancy-related tasks during the illness. Tenants may also request that their landlord accommodate them with payment plans or waivers of late charges if COVID-19 has prevented them from

Speaking to the crowd via bullhorn, gym members and several Oceanside business owners, including Andre Jackson, owner of Auto Fix in Oceanside, expressed the urgency of reopening non-essential businesses shuttered in the wake of COVID-19.

Rodriguez’s letter prompted Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss to issue a statement on behalf of the city reminding residents to obey the law. The Oceanside Police Officers’ Association also issued a statement in response to Rodriguez’s letter, citing “issues with Rodriguez’s approach.” “We believe Councilmember Rodriguez has good intentions, which is why the OPOA endorsed his campaign in 2018, but his potentially inflammatory rhetoric places officers on the frontlines in a lose-lose situation,” the OPOA statement reads. “We feel this letter adds confusion and

Therefore, they may not segregate elderly people or those with serious health conditions from other tenants in an effort to protect them from COVID-19. Finally, a housing provider cannot harass tenants based on their status as a person with a disability, which applies to tenants who have tested positive for COVID-19, as well.
WHAT LANDLORDS CAN AND CANNOT DO Landlords are also subject to new policies during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fair Housing Act prohibits them from inquiring about an individual’s disability, including COVID-19. They may not ask a tenant to move out because they

fuel to the fire of this already highly politicized and controversial issue.” In late April, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a four-stage plan to gradually reopen businesses, schools and public events after nearly two months of mandatory statewide closures and stayat-home orders. California is currently under Phase 2, which permits some non-essential businesses, such as retail and manufacturing, to open for curbside service only. Gyms, fitness centers, tattoo parlors, barbershops, and nail and hair salons are not permitted to reopen until Phase 3, which Newsom warned could still be months away. Uridel said he felt a sense of desperation after learning several gyms in
Vista were allowed to open, attracting the business of former MetroFlex members eager to return to their workout routines. “Every gym that’s open in California right now is illegal,” Uridel said. When asked if he was worried about facing another arrest, jail time and additional fines, Uridel said it was worrisome but felt he was doing the right thing by protecting his business from permanently closing its doors. “I imagine it’s going to get a little ludicrous if I have a stack of fines sitting on my desk,” Uridel said. “If I have to pay them, I’ll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. It’s either get the citations and try to fight to stay open or close down, and then what does it matter?”

CITY OF ENCINITAS PUBLIC NOTICE OF ORDINANCE INTRODUCTION ORDINANCE NO. 2020-03 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Encinitas has introduced Ordinance 2020-03 titled “An Ordinance of the City of Encinitas, California, amending Municipal Code Section 10.04.020 regarding Section 503.6 Security Gates.” Proposed Ordinance 2020-03 includes modifications to the current Fire Code Section 503.6, which details the requirements for security gates. Loss of power to gates, specifically due to SDG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff, is one of the main obstacles to providing rapid and reliable access through automatic gates. The proposed changes are being recommended in order to align with the needs of the Fire Department to provide emergency services when needed and provide requirements for the installation of security gates or security devices across a fire access roadway including requiring a battery back-up be installed on automatic gates, rather than an auto-hold-open function due to security concerns for property owners. Ordinance 2020-03 was introduced at the Regular City Council meeting held on May 6, 2020 by the following vote: AYES: Blakespear, Hinze, Hubbard, Kranz, Mosca; NAYS: None; ABSTAIN: None. ABSENT: None. The ordinance is on file in the office of the City Clerk, 505 South Vulcan Avenue and may be viewed between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. The City Council will consider the adoption of this Ordinance at the May 20, 2020 Regular City Council meeting commencing at 6:00 P.M. in the City Council Chambers, 505 South Vulcan Avenue. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act/Section 504 Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title VI, this agency is an equal opportunity public entity and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, religion, veteran status or physical or mental disability in employment or the provision of service. If you require special assistance to participate in this meeting, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 760-633-2601 at least 72 hours prior to the meeting. /Kathy Hollywood, City Clerk 05/15/2020 CN 24508

The draft FY 2020-2025 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is available for a 30-day public review and comment period from May 15, 2020 - June 13, 2020. The draft AI was prepared as a regional analysis with all San Diego county jurisdictions participating and covers a five-year period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2025. The AI presents a demographic profile of San Diego county, assesses the extent of housing needs among specific income groups, and evaluates the availability of a range of housing choices for residents. The AI also analyzes the conditions in the private market and public sector that may limit the range of housing choices or impede a person’s access to housing. While the AI accesses the nature and extent of housing discrimination, the focus is on identifying impediments that prevent equal housing access and developing solutions to mitigate or remove such impediments. The draft FY 2020-25 AI is available for review on the City’s website at https://encinitasca.gov/Residents/Housing-Resources/Community-Development-Block-Grant-Program. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, effective March 18, 2020 all City facilities are closed to the public. Hard copies will be mailed or e-mailed upon request. Should City facilities re-open during the public review period, copies will be available at City Hall, Encinitas, and Cardiff Libraries, and the Senior and Community Center. The public review period was advertised in a local newspaper, direct email notification, and on the City’s Website. Please submit all comments and questions on the draft FY 2020-25 AI in writing to: Nicole Piano-Jones, Management Analyst, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505 S.

TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

Carlsbad nonprofit still helping children in need CALENDAR By Hoa Quach
CARLSBAD — For 20-year-old Zulema Gillett, the Carlsbad-based, nonprofit Fresh Start Surgical Gifts changed her life. Gillett, who has been a patient of the group for four years, said she’s been able to build her self-confidence thanks to the surgeries she’s received. “My self-esteem has improved so much thanks to Fresh Start, it has made me feel better about myself,” said Gillett, who was born with Goldenhar syndrome, a rare congenital condition. “It has allowed me to come out of my shell. “At the moment, I am going to college to become a dental assistant. I want to become a dental assistant

year. This year, the nonprofit said it’s still accepting applications from children and their families despite the devastating effects of the pandemic. “Our goal has always been to remove barriers and provide access to highly specialized medical care for disadvantaged children in need,” Michelle Pius, chief development officer for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, said. “The needs of the children to lead better lives don’t stop because of a pandemic, unfortunately. They don’t choose to be born with a physical or cosmetic deformity or to be scarred in an accident or by abuse. Fresh Start is a tremendous safety net for children with nowhere else to turn for the medical care they desperately need to live a better life.” Although elective surgeries were temporarily put on hold as a result of the governor’s order, Pius said they hope to resume surgeries in the fall. Surgery weekends are currently scheduled for September, November and January. “Every child is special, and we want to give those in need a medical opportunity that in many cases is life-changing,” Pius said. “In these uncertain and scary times, we want to put the word out that we want applications so we can get them in the queue to start the review and approval process. Once we are able to restart surgical weekends, when they lift the non-emergency surgery ban, we can hit the ground running to help these precious children.” Since Fresh Start’s inception, more than 8,100 children have received nocost charity surgery and medical care valued at over $42 million with a volunteer base of about 500 annually. Gillett, a Temecula resident, who discovered the nonprofit in high school, said the surgeries she’s received have not only improved her confidence — it has improved her speech. She wants other children to have the same opportunity despite the challenging times. “It is important to support this amazing life changing organization during the pandemic because it gives hope not only to kids, but their families as well,” Gillett said. “It gives them hope that they know once this pandemic is over they will get the treatment needed for their child without having to worry about paying anything or not being able to tell their kids that they cannot afford it.” Those children are what drive Fresh Start’s mission. But, public support is needed more than ever to support that mission as well. “As you can probably imagine, with the increase in demand and need, we need additional funding,” Pius said.

Rodriguez tells businesses to reopen By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — The city is reminding its businesses that they still need to follow the county’s health orders after a lone councilmember began encouraging non-essential businesses to open immediately. Councilmember Chris Rodriguez released a letter on May 9 that encourages businesses labeled non-essential to open immediately. For the last month, Rodriguez has been pushing for the reopening of Oceanside businesses. In late April, Council sent a letter to San Diego County Health and Human Services Officer Wilma J. Wooten demanding that the county amend its public health order to allow local agencies to decide when beaches, parks, harbor and local businesses can open. Under the county’s new public health orders issued at the beginning of May, cities can decide when to reopen beaches and parks. The county also revised the health order to allow certain businesses to open, which includes retail with curbside or delivery services only, related logistics and manufacturing. In his letter, Rodriguez claims that the state and county governments don’t and haven’t had a plan to reopen businesses. He also claims that Gov. Gavin Newsom chose “a political pathway lacking of science, common sense and constitutional precedent” when issuing the stay-at-home order, and believes that the constitutional rights of Oceanside residents

and businesses have been “trampled upon.” “If your business has been labeled ‘non-essential’ and you share my convictions, then I encourage you to open immediately and please follow all social distancing, face mask and sterilization protocols that essential businesses and employees are currently following,” Rodriguez said in his letter. Rodriguez called for residents to “safely patronize” businesses and “to also practice county health recommendations of social distancing and face masks when practical.” He also called for houses of worship to open again as well. Mayor Peter Weiss issued a letter in response
to Rodriguez’s letter that distanced the city from the councilmember’s position. “That letter reflects the opinion of the author and not the official position of the city,” Weiss said in his letter The letter also reminds businesses that they remain subject to the San Diego County Health Officer’s orders regarding business operations. “Neither the City Council, nor individual councilmembers have the authority to direct any business to violate the County Orders,” Weiss wrote. Rodriguez also stated in his letter that “many county sheriffs and police chiefs” in California have publicly refused to make arrests and
enforce health orders due to their beliefs that the orders are unconstitutional. “The Police Department will ensure that the Oceanside business community is following the Health Order guidelines, and those failing to comply with the Health Order will be subject to appropriate enforcement,” Weiss responded in his letter. The mayor also urged residents to refer to the city, county and state websites for “accurate guidance” regarding the COVID-19 pandemic health order.
Canyon Crest students take third at National Ocean Sciences Bowl CARMEL VALLEY — Students from Canyon Crest Academy competed in the national finals of the 23rd annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl, placing third in the Science Expert Briefing. An interdisciplinary ocean science education program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership, the NOSB tests students’ knowledge of ocean science topics, including cross-disciplines of biology, chemistry, policy, physics, and geology. This year, due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, students competed in a modified, virtual version of finals. The CCA team of Alexander Shahla, Richard Chen, Andrew Zhang, Gavin Budihentjana and Eleanor Crotty is coached by Mahnaz Shahidi-Asl. To qualify for finals, the teams first had to win their regional competitions, which took place prior to nationwide school

closures and restrictions on meetings. In total, more than 278 teams (made up of almost 1,400 students representing 30 states) participated. Nineteen regional winners made the quick transition to competing in a virtual event rather than in-person. Coinciding with the 10-year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, this year’s competition theme, Understanding Human, Economic, and Environmental Resiliency in the Gulf of Mexico, saw students study the complex connections between ocean issues and the people who call the gulf home. Teams also presented science recommendations on a piece of legislation in the Science Expert Briefing, a mock congressional hearing that enhances the critical thinking elements of the competition and focuses on real-world skills.

Judge OKs Hunter delay request REGION — A San Diego federal judge on May 7 approved a joint request from the federal government and Duncan Hunter’s attorney to delay the ex-congressman's self-surrender date until as late as the first week of January to begin serving an 11-month prison sentence for misusing campaign funds. The motion filed May 5 states “this extension is appropriate due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the unknown impacts the disease will have in the coming months.” Hunter, 43, who pleaded guilty last year to a federal conspiracy charge for misusing campaign funds,
was sentenced in March to 11 months in federal prison, with his surrender date originally slated for May 29. U.S. District Judge Thomas Whelan granted the joint request and ordered Hunter to surrender on or before noon, Jan. 4. In exchange for the government agreeing to the motion, Hunter will not seek any sentence modification or pre-surrender credit for home confinement prior to serving his prison term. Hunter’s wife, Margaret, pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge last summer. Her sentencing has been delayed numerous times, with recent continuances related to the

Carlsbad farmers market returns By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — After weeks of being off the street due to coronavirus, the popular State Street Farmers Market in Carlsbad village returned on May 6 with new health guidelines. The market, which is operated by the Carlsbad Village Association, had 891 people attend, although the event scaled down its vendors to abide by state and county health orders, according to Christine Davis, executive director of the CVA. The market is open each Wednesday from 3 to 7 p.m. The market has been operating for the past 26 years, but had gone dark for the past seven weeks, the longest hiatus in its history, due to the pandemic, she added. “We did that in collaboration with the city,” Davis said. “We wanted to do our part and not tax their resources. For a variety of different reasons, we decided it best to stay closed through the entire public health order that was going through the end of April.” On May 13, the market expanded its vendor list, although new rules and guidelines are in place to ensure compliance with the state and county health orders. Those include vendors who rope off their entranc-

es and are at least six feet away from each other. In addition, customers must point to the food they want and the vendor will then bag the items and
place them on table. No sampling is allowed. Also, all vendors and patrons must wear facemasks, while vendors must also wear gloves, Davis said.
Hand washing stations are also placed throughout the market, which is located on State Street between Carlsbad Village Drive and Grand Avenue. The only an-
imals allowed are certified service pets, Davis said. “The biggest challenge we’ve had is not having all of our vendors there because of needing to open up space between vendors,” she explained. “We are concentrating on the certified growers.” The seven added vendors for the May 13 market are “high nutritional” sellers with products not traditionally found in a grocery store, Davis said. The May 6 event had 20 vendors. Carlsbad police patrol the market to ensure patrons and vendors are following the county health orders, which include physical distancing, facemasks and the new guidelines regarding vendors. “I was nervous that the public would not find it easy to social distance, but with the new layout it’s so simple,” Davis said. “It’s much safer, in my opinion, than a grocery store where you’re much closer to other people. It went better and more smoothly than anticipated. It was a huge relief.” Also, she said the market is asking the public to shop and then return home in concert with the stay-athome order. Davis said there is no congregating or live music and the new market is a model of an outdoor grocery store.

ne man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Anyone’s trash is my daughter’s treasure. All I can say is, it doesn’t come from my side of the gene pool. Too quick to blame? Am I? Let me just say that no car of ours has ever seen the inside of our garage. Let me add that you cannot walk a straight line through my husband’s home office, for the piles of papers, books, clothes and stuff. Let me introduce Exhibit C, my husband’s car. He rarely ferries children anywhere because his back seat is filled with stuff. Jackets, hats, maps, more books, newspapers, tools. I didn’t dig below the first layer. I was afraid I’d lose a finger to something that had made its home there. He also has shirts he wore in college. It seems time to give up the fight. I would have held strong but I foolishly had children. One of them snatched up every strand of pack-rat DNA. The other one is a boy. Now I’m basically outnumbered. If you want my daughter’s eyes to absolutely shine, give her $3 and point her toward a garage sale. This one weekend was a particularly disastrous encounter.

For future reference Products that may come in handy when we’re able to leave the house
hit the road e’louise ondash
t’s difficult to know when we’ll be able to hit the road — or the rails or the skies or the seas — again, but when we do, here are some products that will make the trips easier and more enjoyable. Arcopedico sandals Shoes really are the problem child when it comes to packing. They can be heavy, bulky and too specific in purpose. Sandals by Arcopedico (arcopedicousa.com/ product-category/sandals) can help solve all these problems. They are lightweight, take up half the room of a regular shoe, and are ver- satile, so can be worn for casual or dress events. The foot bed is constructed of Arnedry, a state-of-the-art, breathable, absorbent microfiber that has been specially developed to be used for shoe linings and insoles. The cushy, supportive “twin arch” system makes for hours of wearing comfort and the sandals come in various models and colors. $39-$135.
ten to bring baby’s pacifier or favorite toy, then you know the panic that sets in when you think about trying to survive a week’s vacation or even a brief outing. Six moms and one dad in Issaquah, Washington, understand. They founded BooginHead (booginhead. com), which makes a line of wide, colorful, sturdy straps that keep pacifiers, blankies and sippy cups close. Attach to high chairs, strollers and car BOOGINHEAD BABY seats. Wide selection of colors and styles. About $4$14. Some on sale now.
Coloring Chicago If Seattle, Tokyo, Portland (Oregon), Havana or Chicago is on the family itinerary, give the kids a sneak peek at your destination with any of these “Explore & Color” coloring books (colorfulcities. com) that double as travel guides. The latest, “Colorful Chicago,” explores the city’s ethnic neighborhoods and their authentic cuisine, some of the 580 public parks, public art, the city’s zoo and more. And since parks make cities great, says publisher Colorful Cities, a portion of the sales of “Colorful Chicago” will be donated BooginHead Baby to the Chicago Parks FounIf you’ve ever forgot- dation.
JumpSmart If your car trunk is filled with various tools, jumper cables and miscellaneous stuff rolling around or buried under other stuff, consider simplifying and upping your safety game with JumpSmart (limitlessinnovations.com) by ChargeHub.
A marvel of ergonomic engineering — it has won several awards for its design and you’ll love the sleek, strong case — JumpSmart is a three-inone tool of important functions: The jumper cables and power bank can jumpstart up to an eight-cylinder, 5.0-liter engine (adequate to start cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, lawnmowers and more) and can recharge up to 1,000 times; the heavy-duty LED flashlight has four modes — high and low beams, an SOS flasher and a strobe; and the power bank (2.4 amps) has a USB portal that charges phones, cameras, tablets etc. The JumpSmart is a great addition to any disaster-preparedness kit, too.
PLIQO bag Packing a suit and keeping wrinkles at bay are usually mutually exclusive, but PLIQO (pliqobag. com) has figured out how to deliver wrinkle-free dress clothing without hauling that bulky garment bag. The London-based company that arose via Kickstarter gets rave reviews for its various lightweight-but-sturdy garment bags that somehow fold to fit into carry-on luggage or can be stowed under the seat with space to spare. It might take a couple of minutes to figure out how the bags work because, with folding, magnetic hangers, zippered pockets and compact design, the bags are quite the feat of space-saving engineering.
Swaddle masks I guess it’s come to this: Face masks are now an essential travel accessory. One Seattle company, founded by a registered nurse, decided to switch from making baby blankets to non-medical masks. Swaddle Designs (swaddledesigns.com) offers three-layer masks of 100% cotton with 180 thread count (Lab tests show, she says, that woven cotton out-performed cotton knit, polyester and fleece when it comes to filtering airborne particulate). Masks have an adjustable, bendable nose piece and soft ear elastic, and come in adult-size and medium for smaller adults. Machine wash and dry.
Churches Longtime North County friends host free online concert organize food drive By Hoa Quach
ENCINITAS — Three church parking lots in Encinitas and Carmel Valley were very busy Saturday afternoon when more than 80 volunteers accepted drop-off donations from 140 drive-thru vehicles. This project is one of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church’s many outreach ministery programs. The donations, which will go to nine local agencies, including AniMeals, Casa de Amistad, The CRC, Feeding All God’s Children, Helen Woodward Animal Center, Jewish Family and Community Services, Ladle Fellowship, San Diego Rescue Mission and NICC. Organizer Colleen Ster, from Solana Beach Presbyterian Church, was delighted with the successful outcome, saying it was a heart-warming example of the love and unity in the community during these uncertain times.
REGION — If there’s anything that can unite the world during a challenging time — it’s music. At least that’s what Cal State San Marcos music professor Bill Bradbury believes and he shared that belief with others recently in a free, online concert. Bradbury, alongside longtime friend and Carlsbad resident Gunnar Biggs, came together for a free, online concert streamed by New Village Arts. The duo, who make up the band MandoBasso, performed various tunes beginning with “Stone Soup,” a song about a town that comes together to make soup. “This is a challenging time for all of us,” said Bradbury, an Emmy Award-winning composer who plays the mandolin. “Social isolation is hard. Music is one of the things that can bring us together as a community, even online.” The two musicians who have been playing since they were children said they decided to host a virtu-

al concert from Biggs’ porch after being approached by the New Village Arts program. The program recently launched “New Virtual Arts,” featuring a series of concerts to entertain viewers amid the stay-at-home order, Biggs said. “We had both performed at New Village Arts
in the past and wanted to contribute,” said Biggs, who played bass. “This concert was very well received by those who streamed the NVA piece. At this time, this is the only outlet for live performances. Folks are missing the arts.” And, the musicians are missing the opportunity to
perform for live audiences, said Biggs. “This is the longest period of time I’ve gone without playing live music in 50 years,” Biggs said. “So that has been difficult.” However, Biggs said he’s finding more time to write music and practice, while Bradbury is still
teaching. He also started an online “open mic” for music students using the video service, Zoom. “(The students) just get together to share music and chat,” Bradbury said.” Music helps create community, even online.” After the stay-at-home order is lifted, Bradbury said he and Biggs plan to work on their second album. For now, they hope viewers of their online concert find some comfort during a difficult time. “With this porch concert video we hope to help people feel that we are all in this together and by sharing music we can continue to be connected in a virtual way to support and encourage each other,” Bradbury said. “If we bring smiles to people’s faces and a sense of connection during this challenging time then we have accomplished what we had hoped.” For more information about MandoBasso, go to gunnarbiggs.com.

A day to remember at Cardiff Reef waterspot
“A day will come like no other… and nothing that happens after will ever be the same.” — “Big Wednesday”
have been surfing Cardiff Reef since 1962. In that time, I have seen it big and small. Sheet glassy, blown out and raging offshore so hard you could barely make the drop. I have ridden some good waves and some bad ones in all tides. I have surfed it alone, but mostly with standing room-only crowds. I have witnessed sunsets and moonrises, blistering sun and driving rain. Through it all, one day stands out among the rest. The wind had been beating against our front door all night and the morning revealed dozens of palm fronds littering the front yard. The photo says this was taken in November 2007, but I recall it being in January. Electronic surf reports were in their infancy and it was just prior to the news broadcasting swells
‘THE OCEAN can be unforgiving at times and it was no friend to me as I battled whitewater for 15 or 20 minutes.” Photo by Chris Ahrens
as if they were the second coming. The only ones on hand, therefore, were those with hard-won local knowledge. Living a block from the Reef, I was taking my usual morning walk, when I peeked over the bluff and ran back for my board. Upon arrival, Mike Emerson was taking off late and pulling into for a curtain call reminiscent of Sunset Point on the North Shore of Oahu. The paddle out was easy and I immediately dropped into a set wave and was held at the top before being let in and fighting the wind the entire way while racing to outrun some hard-breaking sections. Paddling back out led
to the infamous “restaurant tour,” which takes paddlers south as far as the Chart House before depositing them on rocks before they are sent south to try again. The ocean can be unforgiving at times and it was no friend to me as I battled whitewater for 15 or 20 minutes until I found myself once again seated outside. I blame my next attempt on equipment failure as I was held at the top and blown back before my leashless board slapped the water and began blowing out to sea. After a difficult swim, I shimmied onto my board’s deck and began paddling back toward the lineup, which now looked like it was
miles away. From the back I could see surfers taking off and disappearing behind the wall before exiting at the end of the ride, usually with their boards spinning in the air as if they were feathers. But I had little time for sightseeing as every moment not spent inching forward left me drifting backward, out to sea. I chose a smaller wave and this time the wind was merciful and allowed me a fun ride without interruption. Straightening out on the inside section, I rode the whitewater toward shore until my fin dragged in the sand. Walking up the beach I was greeted by a stranger carrying a department store soft board. He asked me how it was. Not wanting to discourage him, but realizing it was no place for the inexperienced, I suggested he wait for the surf to drop a little. He gave me a sideways glance and began paddling. The last time I saw him he was walking up the beach from the Chart House. Long into the afternoon, I sat in the sand, content to watch far younger and better surfers ride the best waves they might ever see in Cardiff. I think I speak for us all when I say none of us will ever forget it.

Locals rally to support Northern Pine Cheers! North County
orthern Pine Brewing in Oceanside is a business built on the experience of beer and the community around it. In their comfortable 12-tap tasting room the reclaimed wood bar is overlooked by an imposing split-wood back bar. Northern Pine is a place that infuses the vibe of a Northwestern or upper Northeastern forest right into downtown Oceanside. If you close your eyes while taking a sip of a piney IPA at the bar you can almost imagine you are camping in a national forest along the coastline. Step outside, and you’ll be right back in SoCal only a short walk to the O-side Pier. Northern Pine opened in 2017, and in their third year were looking to expand on their success by upgrading their brewhouse, beginning construction on a second location and planning to begin canning their beers. Then COVID-19 hit us all like a 95-mph fastball from Padres’ great Trevor Hoffman in his prime. The ownership team at Northern Pine, including Marine veteran owners Bobby Parsons, Aaron Ortega and co-owner Anne Ortega, closed the doors to keep their employees and customers safe. Like the rest of us they have been

established breweries they weren’t yet packaging their beer, leaving a potential revenue stream untapped during a time it could really help. Deciding they couldn’t wait any longer, they started a GoFundMe fundraising campaign in hopes of raising $7,500 to purchase a crowler canning machine. Crowlers are those oversized cans that allow us to take home draft beer right from the brewery, and the machine would allow Northern Pine to start selling their beer again for takeout and delivery while still fresh and cold. Donors to the campaign would also receive 20% back in the form of a gift card to be used later and be added to a VIP list
"Because Kindness Matters"
Kindness Meters found at these North County locations:
Tip Top Meats • Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation • Boy’s & Girls Club of C’bad (Bressi Ranch) Moonlight Amphitheater The Lund Team Office and Downtown Carlsbad (at the sign) 100% of the proceeds benefit 7charitable organizations in the community including the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation, Carlsbad Educational Foundation, Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, and The Moonlight Cultural Foundation, Kids for Peace and Boys and Girls Club of Carlsbad
allowing them to purchase new beers before they were available to the public. They launched the campaign the first week of May, and I imagine sat back with a beer to wait once more. They didn’t have to wait long. Less than 24 hours later they had obliterated their goal of $7,500. Anne Ortega responded to their supporters, “YOU ALL ARE INCREDIBLE! We hit our goal in 24 hours! The messages and donations that came from all over the country filled our hearts with so much love. While we have been trying to stay optimistic, it was refreshing to have such a positive day. To not feel helpless, and to feel like we are moving forward with a plan, brings back happy and hopeful feelings that we’ve not experienced in a very long time.” With donors still asking if they could contribute, Northern Pine raised their goal to $10,000 to help them order additional cans, supplies and to pay employees to help design and create labels. At the time this article is being written, during day 7 of their campaign, 123 donors have donated $10,690, and filled the feed with comments of support for the brewery. This is a tough time to be a local brewery and for lots of local brewery customers. To see this outpouring of support for Northern Pine, both financial and emotional, is a great example of the type of community North County is, and the power of craft beer to bring us together. Congratulations to Northern Pine. The North County community can’t wait until they can safely join you in a “cheers” in the tasting room again. Until then we’ll be waiting for the ribbon-cutting on the new crowler machine and looking for the first opportunity to buy some beer to take home. May 11-17 is American Craft Beer Week. Breweries throughout the county are facing unprecedented challenges. This is a great week to support your neighborhood brewery by buying beer for delivery or takeout, gift some craft beer to a friend, order gift cards and merchandise or check in with your favorite local spots to find out how you can best support them. Look out for the new Cheers! North County podcast where I have a (virtual for now) drink with someone to talk about, well, anything. The first two podcasts are out this week on all your favorite podcast platforms featuring local beer writer Beth Demmon and Justin Sliwinski, the local market manager for Deschutes Brewery.
LOUISE HAY started Hay House publishing in Carlsbad in the 1980s. She died at age 90 in 2017. Courtesy photo
Louise Hay’s message still resonates in today’s world
hinking about where we have been and where we might be going, the long weeks that made up in-between, my mind wandered to my beginnings in New Thought and who most influenced me. Louise Hay, one of the world's foremost and wellknown metaphysicians and mystics, comes most predominately to mind. It was her little blue book titled, “You Can Heal Your Life” that made an impact on me and her fantastic prayer out of “Heal Your Body” that I hung on my wall in the early '80s and read to myself every day. Thirty years later, it's still there through every move — another stepping stone on the path of my enlightenment. She's was dubbed the Queen of New Age by the NewYork Times, but more than this, she leaves behind a rich legacy with the Hay House located in Carlsbad. For those of you who are not familiar, most of the New Thought and Self-Development authors that now have living room names came out of Hay House. These include many notables in the self-help movement, including Dr. Wayne Dyer, Joan Borysenko, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Doreen Virtue, Suze Orman, Tavis Smiley, Deepak Chopra, Gabby Bernstein, Iyanla Vanzant, Jerry and Esther Hicks, Caroline Myss, Cheryl Richardson, and Marianne Williamson. All of these were first published under the Hay House imprint. There is a whole new generation of consciousness raisers coming out of Hay House with Jim Kwik, Matt Khan, Dr. Joe Dispenza and Gregg Braden. Many of these have reached the New York Times bestseller list. What's tripping me out most right now is finding out that she was a Religious Science Minister and was a Science of Mind Practitioner for years — the same spiritual path that I am currently on. She became a popular speaker and workshop leader, but it was her battle with cervical cancer and her self-treatment with affirmations and the power of thought and affirmative prayer that healed her in six months and brought the book to life. It was her prayers for herself and others that revealed the spiritual truth,
on fire Susan Sullivan and the mental cause of the ailments she treated, the mental patterns that create dis-ease in the body. When she finally self-published this piece due to popular demand, her work became pivotal in many AIDS patients in the '80s. Today, what began as a small venture in the living room of her home has turned into a prosperous corporation that has sold millions of books and products worldwide. It may be safe to say that because of Louise Hay, The Secret was so widely accepted, and the Law of Attraction popularized as she shed her unique light onto the creative powers for personal growth and self-healing across the globe. These are not new concepts. If Louise were still around today, she would tell you herself that there is no new knowledge. All truths are ancient and infinite. All the answers lie within if you are willing to do the work and take a look at yourself. Take responsibility for your own life and know that it is done to you as you believe. What we give out we get back. A time like this, with uncertainty and fear lingering all around us, we find ourselves divided with two sides of the pandemic. Fights are being argued in neighborhoods, beaches, Facebook, and on Capitol Hill as we navigate these uncharted territories. Maybe it is time to dust off this book and look into the beliefs that are creating your thoughts that are then creating your life and reality. Perhaps we can heal our lives, bodies, and our planet while we are at it. Get a bit more involved in some of the decisions that are going to affect our future. Take a stand. There are indeed two ways that we can approach life after Corona. Currently, Hay House is offering free resources of some of the best-archived seminars as well as new authors hitting the scene. Check out hayhouse.com, hayhouseradio.com and healyourlife.com.

Learn the five S’s: The essence of wine tasting
ast week, I got to thumbing through my earlier wine columns from some years ago. The wine world has changed so much since those halcyon days when life was a little calmer, prosperous and most of the wine we reported on was Cabernet and Chardonnay. But what hasn’t changed and what I focused on in those columns is that wine is a celebration of life and it makes sense to know how to celebrate to get the most out of it. Pour about a third of a glass of your favorite red and stay with me as I take you through the basics of elevating your celebration, with a review of the five S’s. SIGHT: The first thing that happens in this fivepart harmony in the romance of wine is the sight of the wine. Wine should be poured into a clear tulip-shaped glass with a long stem to grip. The color will vary from a deep red approaching black, in wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, from France and California, and the Nebbiolo grape, found in Barolo and Barbaresco in Italy. The sight of brick red might be a Pinot Noir, Merlot or a Sangiovese and other lighter red colored wine. You are also scanning for any foreign objects in the wine that would compromise the flavor. It could be cork fragments, even tiny sticks or other impurities from the crush of the grapes prior to barreling. SWIRL: Swirling, the second of the five S’s, is done to prepare the nose for this step as it aerates the wine, allowing oxygen to mix with the wine to create a perfumed smell and flavor. When swirling, hold the glass firmly vertical by the stem, never by the glass to avoid warming, and briskly move it in a circular motion. “Legs,” or “tears,” may be seen running down the inside of the glass after the swirl. These result from higher levels of alcohol and sugar and hint at the wine’s power. On my trips to meet Italian winemakers in Ita-
taste of wine frank mangio ly, I always got a laugh out of the vigorous swirling of their wines while expressing themselves, concluding it was just a nervous habit. Not at all! They were simply seeking the maximum “bouquet,” a combination of smell and taste. SMELL: The smell of a wine is its “bouquet.” It’s a fitting description, like the best flowers bundled up into a bouquet as a gift for a loved one. Another expression would be the “nose” of the wine. The human nose can distinguish thousands of unique smells. Wines have over 200 of their own. So get your nose down in the glass as close to the wine as possible. Take deep, short, sharp inhalations and try to detect smells such as flowers, fruit, herbs, oak, coffee and licorice. Younger reds will smell fruity, old wines will smell more earthy. SIP: The sip or taste of the wine is indeed the most enjoyable of this fivepart harmony. With the smell still lingering in the nose, place the glass to your lips and take in a healthy mouthful. Work it around your mouth, but make sure it’s not so much that you have to swallow right away. Keep the wine making contact with your palate and tongue with an awareness of the flavors it presents, as well as body, and acidity that will come from the tannins in the wine, essential for maturity. SAVOR: The last is the finish, or savor. In the swallow/savor, be aware of how long the taste lasts in your mouth. Great wines have a long finish that last as long as a minute. It should leave a very pleasant aftertaste. It is your final impression of a wine and should reflect its excellent quality and taste. Reach him at frank@ tasteofwineandfood.com
ne of the first stores I frequented when I landed in Encinitas 20 years ago was Queen Eileen’s in the heart of downtown, not far from The Saloon, my favorite watering hole. Between visits to the store and The Saloon, I became acquainted with Queen Eileen, or Eileen Burke as she is known by some. I always loved her unique style and our shared interests in a refreshing beverage, local restaurants both old and new, and establishments full of personality. Since she lives near Stone Steps, one of my favorite local breaks, our paths have crossed there often, as well as with her brother Mike, who I’ve enjoyed mellow waist-high summer waves with on many occasions. Given that Queen Eileen’s is closed due to the lockdown, I wanted to remind folks that when they reopen, it’s stores like this that are going to need your full support. With that, I caught up with Queen Eileen recently and learned more about her fun story and some of the restaurants around town she can’t wait to get back to soon. Lick the Plate: Tell me about your family and your roots in Encinitas. Queen Eileen: My parents were teachers in Northern California and one summer when I was 7 we camped at the Cardiff campgrounds, and that was it; they fell in love with Encinitas and bought a house

truck, she would have done it in a New York minute. As it was, she nearly came to blows with another woman who was matching her grab for grab. My sweet, generally shy child started stuffing boxes like she hadn’t a toy to her name. Within 10 minutes, you could no longer find my living room floor. You could find a slotcar set with no cars, several sheets of leftover tile, an old dish drainer, a dirty rug, a broken basket made of pine cones sprayed gold, a really swell plastic Halloween bowl, half a travel game, a red tulle dress that might actually add to our costume box and a miniature spa

off Neptune. The rest is history. I went to San Dieguito High, took surf PE and lots of other classes that didn’t prepare me for the working world. Stone Steps was our hangout, the Distillery and Dicks at the beach was our weekend entertainment. Everybody hitchhiked everywhere. I sold vintage clothes on the weekends at Peddlers Village in Leucadia. Life was good and simple in Encinitas in those days. LTP: What did you do prior to opening the store? QE: I moved to Miami shortly after graduating from San Dieguito and worked in nightclubs in the “Miami Vice” days and also worked on a government research ship that went around the world. When the ship went into dry dock for repairs, all my friends from the clubs were doing strip-a-grams. I opened my own agency in Miami called Tease a Gram and it was the No. 1 agency in town. LTP: How did Queen Eileen’s come to be? QE: Queen Eileen’s has been on PCH for 30-plus years now. We started in an office above Roxy’s in 1989. One day while looking out the window of our office, I spotted a “For Rent”
sign across the street where the 101 Diner seating area is. I called the landlord and took a space with no real plan, it just looked like a fun project. Our name at the beginning was Balloon A Gram but we quickly changed it to Queen Eileen’s. LTP: How would you describe Queen Eileen’s? QE: Oh my ... where do I start? I have heard my store described in so many ways. Like a Hallmark on steroids, a kick in the pants kind of store. I always say if it’s under 20 bucks and makes you laugh, I sell it. We have everything from fart bombs to PJs to sterling silver from Bali and everything in between. One can find balloons and custom gift baskets and we even have a naughty room in the back. We are famous for our novelty gifts and people come from far and wide to shop with us. We have been having a blast with this store for decades and our product is always fun, snarky and forever changing. Do you want to know Encinitas’ best kept secret? Our warehouse behind the store is full of product for our wholesale business, Bali Queen, at unbelievable prices. You have to ask to go
that squirted water all over. There was more, but those are the highlights. When asked to pick up her newly acquired pile of stuff and find a place to put it all, she turned to me without the smallest twinge of conscience and said, “But there’s no room left in my bedroom.” The space in the playroom attic and beneath her bed is filled with brimming Rubbermaid containers. Her closet floor is covered with plastic baskets, also brimming with every cheap party favor ever given her, every “Archie” comic book, 100 dried-up marker pens, one-eyed stuffed animals and assorted game pieces. I have quit hoping to win the lottery. I just want “Antiques Roadshow” to
roll through town. Something in that tacky pile must be worth something. But I know, with the words “No, don’t throw that out” ringing in my ears, the item that would have caught us a spot on that show and an appraisal in the thousands will be that one ab-

back there, definitely worth the trek across the alley. LTP: Given the current state of lockdown, how can people support Queen Eileen’s? QE: I am available to make and deliver gift baskets here in coastal North County. Our clothing brand is for sale online at www.cocorose.com. Really the best way to support us and all your other favorite independent stores and restaurants is to come see us and shop and eat when we all can open up. I have been selling masks, both tie dye and made of sarongs on my deck and on Neptune on the weekends. I am sending all the proceeds to our friends and suppliers in Bali and Thailand. It is a struggle for them to make ends meet with the current situation. Who would have known I would have been a hustle bunny philanthropist in a pandemic on my deck at home? I have been blessed to be able to make a difference and happy to do it. LTP: Given our shared appreciation of a wide range of food and drink, what places are you hitting up once we can enjoy going out to eat and drink again? QE: Oh my, so many. I want a beach bum at HapiFish, pizza at Buona Forchetta, crab legs on Saturday night at Keno’s, an adult beverage at The Saloon, a patty melt at Encinitas Cafe, the Greek omelet at 101 Diner, empanadas and goat cheese salad at Q’ero, the monk bowl at East Village, a BG burger and sweet potato fries at Bier Garden, fish tacos at Encinitas Fish Shop and a Kobe beef burger at Encinitas Ale House.

Seniors alone at home asking: “Who will take care of me?” SAN MARCOS - May 15, 2020 - For scores of seniors who live at home alone, the coronavirus pandemic has given rise to a number of serious questions about the inherent risks of being on their own. Questions like: What happens if I catch the virus? Who will take care of me if I get sick? And…Should I be living someplace safer right now? Seniors At Risk Before the pandemic, families frequently dropped in to check up on elderly loved ones. Now, even if relatives are just across town, they are often busy home-schooling their own children, working from home or locked down themselves. Out-of-state relatives cannot jump on a plane and be there if they are needed. With seniors being identified as the population most at risk for contracting the virus, family members often choose not to make unnecessary home visits to elderly relatives to prevent any possibility of exposure. Instead, seniors are relying on deliveries of basic provisions at home or putting themselves at greater risk by visiting grocery stores and pharmacies on their own. Seniors Turn To Assisted Living For seniors who have never been afraid to live alone before, the new risks associated with COVID-19 have them worried about being more isolated and their safety. Even senior couples who are at home alone together run the risk of picking up the virus and bringing it home to a spouse with each trip out of the house. Caretaking under the “new normal” of pandemic circumstances has become difficult for many as the isolation sets in. As a result,
sures and monitoring of residents has been tremendous through all of this.”
many seniors are turning to assisted living as a safer option. Retirement communities offer an insulated environment with significant virus protections already in place, like controlled visitor access, daily temperature monitoring, and the added peace of mind of having professional caregivers watching over residents. “My friend Irene Grahn, who now lives at Silvergate [Retirement Residences], has macular degeneration and some hearing loss. If she were still at home with this pandemic going on, she’d be in real trouble,” said Norm Halus, a long-time friend who has been social distancing and serenading Grahn from 6 feet away on her patio to keep her spirits high . “Just having food delivered would be hard for her to manage right now if she were still home alone. At Silvergate, all of her meals are prepared and served directly to her, so she doesn’t have to worry about it. The community’s safety mea-
Silvergate San Marcos - Retirement Living Silvergate San Marcos, an award winning senior living community for more than 25 years, recognizes the challenges faced by seniors living alone at home. They have taken extensive measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of its residents - safety protocols that most seniors would find difficult to undertake at home on their own. “We understand the uncertainty and fear that seniors can feel when they are home alone, especially right now,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director of Silvergate San Marcos. “Most seniors need interaction with others and caregivers if they want to maintain their health and simply feel better from day to day. If you are at home struggling behind closed doors, we invite you to call us for advice or to talk about your situation. By reaching out to us from home, we can lift that burden of concern off of seniors and help them bring normalcy and peace of mind back into their lives right now.” Learn More About Staying Safe For those who are nervous about living alone, now may be exactly the right time to learn more about Silvergate San Marcos. The community offers independent living, assisted living and memory care in a premier senior living community that features studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom accommodations.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be a bit shaken by a friend’s request. But before the Lamb leaps to conclusions, insist on a full explanation. You still might say no, but at least you’ll know what you’re saying no to. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Seeing red over those nasty remarks by someone with an ax to grind? Of course you are. So get out there and give your supporters the facts they need to get the truth out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation should get you to reassess your vacation plans and make any adjustments as soon as possible. And don’t fret — the change most likely will turn out for the better. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t put off dealing with any negative feelings that might be left over from a recent confrontation. The sooner all is resolved, the sooner you can move forward with fewer complications. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leos and Leonas might feel the urge to redecorate their dens, and that can turn into a good opportunity to strengthen family ties by putting the whole pride to work to make it happen. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Look for the most efficient way to get a job done quickly and well. Taking more time than you need to make it look more challenging is a short-sighted move you might regret later on.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A pesky problem should be dealt with immediately so you can put your time and effort into something more important. Someone from your past could have significant news for you. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A workplace situation becomes a lot more bothersome than you’d expected. Be careful not to be pulled into all that anger. Look for support among others who also want to avoid trouble. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Cheer up, lonely lovers, wherever you are. Just when you thought you’d been deleted from Cupid’s database, the chubby cherub proves that’s just not so. Congratulations. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A casual relationship could take a more serious turn. Are you ready for it? Your stars say you are. Paired Sea Goats also will find a renewed richness in their relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Meeting a collaborator with new ideas seems to be a dream come true. But for both your sakes, be sure all your legal i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed before you start working together. PISCES (February 19 to March 21) A romantic overture flatters the usually unflappable Fish. But since it’s a sincere from-the-heart gesture, go ahead and enjoy it. A minor health problem responds well to treatment. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the warm heart of a Taurean and the sensitivity of a Gemini. You would make a wonderful leader. So go ahead: Run for office. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
