TURN TO SAFE PARKING ON A6
By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — There will be no special election this time. The Carlsbad City Council has decided to wait for the general election in November to fill the vacant city council seat. The vacant seat is an at-large position formerly held by Councilwoman Cori Schumacher, who was elected to the council in 2016. Following the resignation of former Councilwoman Barbara Hamilton, Schumacher later won Hamilton's District 1 seat during a special election in March 2019, leaving an at-large vacant seat on the council. Hamilton was elected as District 1 representative in November 2018 before leaving in October 2019. “As a practical matter, the special election option is really not available in this instance because the next regularly scheduled election date is not until Nov. 3, 2020,” Sheila Cobian, city clerk services, said. “With that election, there will no longer be any at-large seats because the city will have completed its transition to district rather than at-large elections.” The City Council has 60 days after a vacancy in an elected office to either appoint a successor or call a special election to fill the vacancy. The special election must be held on the next regularly scheduled election date not less than 114 days after the election is called. Mayor Matt Hall, who was the lone no vote, said he believes calling on experienced former city councilmembers offers viable options for an appointment over the next six months. He said with the city’s budget beginning to take shape, and other pressing issues, the seat should be filled as soon as possible. Hall said former councilmembers Michael Schumacher, Eric Larson, TURN TO COUNCIL SEAT ON A6
BACK TO BUSINESS Supervisors approve stimulus package as stores begin to reopen
By Bradley Rollins
REGION — What its authors billed as “a comprehensive economic and humanitarian stimulus package” using funds from the federal coronavirus relief bill was approved today by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. The package con-
sists of $175 million for the county's COVID-19 response/recovery; $100 million for virus testing, tracing and treatment; $50 million for 17 cities; $17 million to help restaurants and small businesses; $15 million for behavioral health services; and $2 million for child welfare services.
The county has received $334 million in funding from the coronavirus aid bill. County officials expect there might be more funding coming from the federal and state governments to make up for any shortfall caused the coronavirus outbreak, according to Luis Monteagudo, the director of
Fatal Grandview bluff collapse triggers legislation By Jordan P. Ingram
ENCINITAS — A Leucadia resident who witnessed a fatal bluff collapse that claimed the lives of three family members last summer in Encinitas is rallying support for legislation to improve public safety on beaches by allowing local municipalities and homeowners to more easily install protective barriers along the shoreline.

Board trustees approve Del Mar Heights School redesign By Lexy Brodt
DEL MAR — Come 2021, Del Mar Heights School will see a complete rebuild of its 61-year-old campus. The Del Mar Union School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a redesign of the elementary school at a May 12 virtual meeting — the long-awaited green light to a project at least six years in the making. The approved rebuild will get rid of the campus’ infamous, decaying portable classrooms, about double the school’s queuing area and parking spaces, and create integrated indoor/outdoor learning spaces for the school’s approximately 500 students. The redesign has endured its fair share of hurdles, demonstrated by the over two hours of divisive public comment leading up to its approval. Plenty of parents, teachers, and even students chimed in to push the district onward, supporting the new design. “Our new school plan is a balance of everything we asked for,” said longtime Del Mar Heights teacher Paige Rollins. “It’s an inspiring place for children, teachers and our community.” But a near equal number of community members and parents spoke out against the project. Their

numbers have grown over the months, though opposition first began in the fall, with concerns over the design’s decreased field size. The discussion has since yielded a multifaceted debate over defensible space, fire evacuation plans, the school’s student capacity and air pollution on campus from the incorporated queueing space. The $45 million project has been on the school district’s radar for years. As the oldest school in the district, a pre-COVID-19 Del Mar Heights was operating well beyond its capacity. A third of the classrooms were situated in portable structures that in some cases had been condemned, overrun by animals or plagued with
mold. The passage of Measure MM in 2018 cleared the way for a rebuild. The voter-approved bond measure allowed the district to secure funding for major school revitalization projects, the Del Mar Heights rebuild being at the top of the list. Throughout 2019, architects with BakerNowicki Design Studio conducted workshops to gather input from parents, faculty and students on what a new school should look like. Many teachers and faculty were happy with the outcome, but others were shaken by the sizable decrease in the school’s field size. Such concerns prompted the formation of two non-
profit organizations — Save the Field and Play Outside Del Mar, and a petition with over 2,000 signatures calling for the field’s preservation. The architects increased the size of the redesign’s field twice to accommodate these concerns — with the site’s total green space ultimately seeing an increase of about 1,500 square feet. But the main green field will still be smaller than before. A few parents spoke at the meeting to lament what they saw as a prioritization of parking at the expense of a larger field. “I think the school should slow down and do better for the community, do better for the kids by
coming up with a better plan — one that doesn’t sacrifice the field for a road so people can park,” said parent Garrett Anderson. When the district released the project’s mitigated negative declaration (MND) in February, such opposition only escalated. Required for a school project such as this, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) document is meant to show how the district can mitigate certain impacts of a project to a level of insignificance. But many saw this environmental review process as insufficient, particularly due to the school’s proximity to the Torrey Pines State Reserve and associated risks of wildfire exposure.
In response to the MND, Procopio law firm prepared a lengthy comment on behalf of Save the Field — leading to concerns about potential litigation. The letter asserts that the district’s MND inadequately anticipates impacts related to community park space, biological resources and fire protection — to name a few. Wendy Wiles, an attorney for the district, said that a potential lawsuit would address whether the district should have gone forward with an environmental impact report — a more rigorous document that assumes a project will indeed have significant imTURN TO SCHOOL REBUILD ON A11

State Street Businesses Look Forward To Reopening On May 19th, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved two measures intended to allow the region to accelerate the reopening of the local economy. According to the County’s public health officer, Wilma J.

Grade policy reversed by school board By Steve Puterski
ENCINITAS — After a long and sometimes heated discussion during a special meeting May 14, the San Dieguito Union High School District is reversing course on its controversial grading policy. The board of trustees unanimously approved to move forward with a “Hold Harmless” policy to allow students and parents to choose between letter grades or credit/no credit. Many parents had been calling for the hybrid policy due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty with college and university applications, plus a list of other concerns. District staff were to return to the board May 21 with a detailed policy and implementation plan. The policy will only impact the district’s five high schools; middle schools will use the credit/no credit policy. A condition of the Hold Harmless policy is no student’s grade will be lower than the last recorded one before the district instituted its credit/no credit policy in early April. Students at Torrey Pines, La Costa Canyon and Sunset high schools, if they choose, can reinstate their grades from March 13. San Dieguito and Canyon Crest academy students may choose to take their grades from the third quarter, which ended in early April. “There has been no reason given against choice,” Trustee Maureen Muir said. “Parents and students want this.” Muir also sparred with Superintendent Robert Haley when she asked him to point out the benefits of credit/no credit only. Haley said his previous decision was to best protect all students, especially disadvantaged ones struggling to complete coursework due to challenging home lives. Haley said it will take the district time to implement the new policy, noting the execution plans must be relayed to principals, teachers and parents to ensure each student has a clear path regarding their grading options. The board briefly discussed tabling the item until May 21, but that was brushed aside after Muir agreed to allow staff time to develop the language and keep middle schools on the credit/no credit policy. “The reason I’m considering grades is because other districts have done it and our students may be severely disadvantaged,” said Trustee Kristin Gibson. “In the end, I don’t think this decision will have a significant impact either way. I do feel like this situation has fragmented our community, unfortunately.” Prior to the meeting, Board President Beth Hergesheimer and Trustee Joyce Dalessandro were served recall papers.

Rodriguez continues to push for full reopening By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — As California slowly begins to reopen businesses following the governor’s stayat-home order, local North County elected officials continue to push for the county to fully reopen immediately. Councilmember Chris Rodriguez has been one such elected official. He has been vocal about his support for a full reopening and his concerns for city businesses for more than a month now. Earlier in May, Rodriguez wrote a letter addressed to the city encouraging businesses labeled non-essential to open immediately despite county orders. Mayor Peter Weiss responded to Rodriguez’s letter by distancing the city from the councilmember’s position, as The Coast News previously reported. Rodriguez said he anticipated it. “The city manager and the city attorney asked the mayor to write that letter,” Rodriguez said. The Oceanside Police Officers’ Association also wrote a letter in response to Rodriguez’s May 9 letter. OPOA acknowledged in its response that many citizens share Rodriguez’s viewpoint, but noted the officers cannot let “personal viewpoints dictate how we do our job.” “No member of the OPOA wants to enforce shutting a business down,” the letter states, adding that the OPOA has sponsored several local restaurants over the last two months as a means of supporting local businesses. The letter states that

the OPOA took issue with Rodriguez’s approach, saying that though Rodriguez may have good intentions, his “potentially inflammatory rhetoric places officers on the frontlines in a loselose situation” and “adds confusion and fuel to the fire of this already highly politicized and controversial issue.” “The bottom line is we are in a difficult situation which was made worse by Councilmember Rodriguez,” the letter states. “We would encourage Councilmember Rodriguez, and any member of the community for that matter, to use more appropriate avenues to implement change to lawfully challenge any laws they believe are unjust.”
Some local business owners have been arrested for opening their businesses against the county’s health orders. On May 10, Lou Uridel, the owner of Metroflex Gym in Oceanside, was arrested for opening his gym. Rodriguez responded to the OPOA’s letter. “The heart of my letter addressed to the people of Oceanside on May 9th 2020 was not about defiance, it was about survival,” Rodriguez writes. “Oceanside’s hurting and businesses have no other choice but to operate and survive, before it’s too late.” Rodriguez then called for Oceanside Police Chief Frank McCoy, County Sheriff William Gore and all
county law enforcement officers “to prioritize the survival of San Diego County residents and their God given freedoms to work and provide for those they love.” In addition to his letters, Rodriguez spoke at a May 16 rally at the San Diego County Administration Building calling for the county’s complete reopening. Rodriguez said he has an overwhelming amount of support from the community on his position. “For every one upset email, there’s 10 positive emails,” he said. Rodriguez said residents are also growing angry that there aren’t more elected officials standing up like he is. He acknowledged
County Supervisor Jim Desmond, who represents parts of North County and is also pushing for full reopening. Recently, Desmond claimed on the Armstrong & Getty Extra Large Interviews podcast that there were only six “pure” coronavirus deaths out of the county’s more than 200 deaths linked to COVID-19. For Rodriguez, it doesn’t make sense why retail stores like Walmart can be opened but not other stores like Kohl’s or Ross. “The environment is exactly the same if not safer than a Walmart,” he said. On May 12, the county updated its public health order allowing the opening of office-based businesses, car washes, pet grooming businesses, landscape gardening businesses, outdoor museums, open gallery spaces and businesses in malls or strip malls for curbside pickup only. The state estimated that 70% of the California economy had reopened. The county has also relaxed restrictions on recreational activities. Campgrounds are now able to reopen but must operate at half of their capacity and individual campsites must include only members of the same household. Businesses that rent bicycles, surfboard, boats, kayaks and other watercraft can reopen as well. All businesses that are allowed to reopen must first prepare a Safe Reopening Plan for county approval. In Oceanside, the beach is currently open for active recreation only. All beach parking lots and piers in the county are still closed.
Cardiff School District to seek $2.6M loan for rebuild By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — Following a lengthy appeal process and settlement, Cardiff School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously on May 18 to secure a $2.6 million loan, helping to close a funding gap on the Cardiff School construction project as well as announcing students will begin classes at the new campus by January 2021. In a press release, the district reported a $4 million financial deficit, a “ripple effect” originating from a lawsuit with the Cardiff Preservation Society causing “substantial legal fees, increased construction and contract costs, as well as a significant impact of the project scope and timeline.” The district laid out the financial consequences of the contentious lawsuit that put a halt to all construction this past winter. The $2.6 million loan sought by the district has a fixed annual interest rate of 3.15% over 25 years, with an annual repayment amount of $159,000. The funds will only partially cover the expenses incurred from the subsequent lawsuit, part of which includes a $500,000 settle-

ment payout made to the plaintiffs in March 2020 as well as $832,000 in the district’s own legal fees. At the center of the claims made by the lawsuit is a 1993 grant agreement between the City of Encinitas and the school district requiring the playfields to be used solely for outdoor recreation in perpetuity. The district laid out their process of applying for a “well-established boundary adjustment” with the Office of Grants and Local Services and the National
Park Service — the agencies administering the grant program — laying blame for any delays on the plaintiff’s lawsuit itself. In a unanimous vote to secure a loan necessary for the Cardiff School’s construction, the Cardiff School Board announced a new timeline for completion of the new campus. Courtesy photo Citing extensive water damage from heavy rainfall that occurred during the halt in construction, the district justified further alter-
ations to the project design amounting to over $2 million, as well as contract extensions, architectural and bond program management services, and grant permits costing $650,000. Furthermore, the district expanded on how the timeline and physical scope of the project was negatively impacted. One additional classroom building has been tabled due to budgetary constraints and the project’s timeline for completion has been pushed three months,
which will cause all K-2 students to move into their new classrooms in December 2020 — not in September 2020, as originally projected. Once students have moved into new classrooms, final landscaping and site work will be completed by June of 2021. The district’s press release reassured constituents that it is eager to move forward with the campus overhaul voted on by 65.9% of Cardiff voters in 2016. “We are happy to finally be on the other side of this time-consuming and costly lawsuit, and to see the project moving forward according to the student-focused design that was developed with stakeholder input and finalized two years ago,” said Jill Vinson, Superintendent of the Cardiff School District. Siena Randall, Cardiff School District Board President added, “we are excited to see the new campus taking shape and to know that when completed, it will meet the needs of students now and in the future.” For more information on the project and construction updates visit www.cardiffschools.com/measuregg.

Shore up bluffs to save lives and preserve beach access
oastal erosion has wreaked havoc on communities along California’s coastline for years as increasing amounts of bluffs are collapsing onto our beaches. This harsh reality became a deadly one in Encinitas at Grandview Beach in August 2019. An oceanfront bluff suddenly collapsed without warning and killed three members of a family who had gathered to celebrate Elizabeth Cox’s victory over breast cancer. Elizabeth, her sister Julie Davis, and her niece Annie Clave, all perished.

While the California Coastal Act of 1976 requires any construction that alters natural shoreline processes to be permitted by the California Coastal Commission or a local government with an approved local coastal program, their current coastal management strategy does not prioritize ero-
Doing nothing to prevent additional bluff collapses is not acceptable.” There could have been more fatalities had friends and other family members present at the celebration not been a few feet away from the impact area at the time of the collapse. The Encinitas tragedy followed similar bluff collapse fatalities in 1995, 2000, 2002, and 2008. In October 2018, a concrete beach walkway near the back of Capistrano Beach collapsed because of ocean driven erosion. In November 2019, a major bluff collapse in Del Mar put the entire coastal rail-line in jeopardy and will now cost $100 million to repair. Concerns over more bluff collapses have become especially acute in San Diego and Orange Counties. Millions of people visit our beaches each year but are forced to sit at the base of at-risk bluffs due to the lack of sand replenishment and minimal beach area during
protective device installation – but only if they meet certain requirements for coastal mitigation. If an applicant is granted a permit, they would also pay for a specified amount of sand replenishment and permit processing costs. The Coastal Commission would be required to respond to such a request within 30 days. Unless an application constitutes a substantial threat to public safety, coastal erosion mitigation projects would move forward under specific regulations. If a project is denied, the Coastal Commission would need to respond within 30 days with the reason and documentation for the denial. SB 1090 would also require the Coastal Commission to identify plant species native to Orange and San Diego counties, and specifies that a property owner would not be required to obtain approval from the Coastal Commission or a local government for the planting of those identified species, which will also help mitigate further erosion. While powerful forces prefer the state stick to the status quo of doing nothing to shore up our bluffs and improve public safety, I say we must do better. With the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee scheduled to consider SB 1090 on May 26, I hope a bipartisan majority of the committee members will agree that the time to act is now before more lives are lost.
sion mitigation. Doing nothing to prevent additional bluff collapses is not acceptable. While some believe that we should just “retreat” and let erosion continue unchecked, it begs the question, where does the retreat end? There has to be a better way than just waving the white flag and surrendering both public and private properties and facilities. In partnership with many local residents who love our coast, I have introduced Senate Bill 1090 to help save lives, preserve beach access and essential infrastructure, ensure local control, and protect property rights.

nd the winner of the inaugural “NUTS” award is … There are many types of awards floating around, so why not create another one. I took the name from comments made by Councilman Kranz at the Encinitas City Council meeting on May 6, which ended the red-light camera program. The clear winner is Councilman Mosca. Using faulty and pathetic logic, he managed to convince Mayor Blakespear and Councilwoman Hubbard to vote for the cancellation and it passed by a 3-2 vote. Council members Kranz and Hinze voted against. The cameras are the most effective way to discourage red-light running. It is cost-prohibitive to have sheriff’s deputies enforce red-light running violations. It presents a danger to them and that is why we use technology. The cameras work 24/7, 365 days a year, in any weather. They don’t require vacation or sick pay. A study by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) found that cameras reduced the fatal red- light running crash rate at a substantial rate. IIHS studies also show that after cameras were removed, the number of accidents caused by red-light running increased. I quote our award winner: “City officials have been debating for years whether to keep the cameras. “Encinitas should have pulled the plug long ago when it became evident that the cameras provide limited accident-prevention benefit. Nothing has changed, and hundreds of people are still getting these ridiculous fines of
$490 and court-set cost.” This last statement is curious at best, since Mr. Mosca seems to have forgotten once again that the fine for a red-light violation ticket issued by a deputy is the same amount as the camera violation ticket. He goes on to say:
that failing to come to a complete stop when turning right puts pedestrian in crosswalks at risk of injury.” I applaud Councilman Kranz for his logic and his steadfast support for the program. Councilman Mosca seems to have forgotten
A politician does not make much of a traffic engineer.” “Most of the tickets aren’t going to the people who drive straight through the intersection when the light turns red. “Instead the cameras typically catch drivers who either fail to come to a complete stop making the right turn on a red light, or drivers who try to scoot through an intersection in a left-turn lane when the arrow is going from yellow to red.” Now the questionable advice: “Instead of ticketing people, we ought to increase yellow clearances.” I guess it is beyond Mr. Mosca’s apprehension that long yellows will give waiting motorists the impression that the signal is stuck and start entering the intersection on red, while other drivers will continue to enter the intersection on yellow (A politician does not make much of a traffic engineer). Now, Councilman Kranz: “The argument that Joe just made is pretty nuts. People who receive left-turn tickets know full well that the yellow is about to end as they drive up to the intersection and say to themselves, ‘I can beat the red light.’ Increasing the length of the yellow won’t end that behavior. “They need to realize
that the simplest way to avoid a ticket is to obey the various traffic laws and that applies to everyone — economically challenged or well-off. I am sure that there are a number of people who are ecstatic about the council’s vote, yet do not have the wherewithal to look at the bigger picture. It seems that Mayor Blakespear and Councilwoman Hubbard need to be included in that group. City Council has charged the Traffic and Public Safety Commission with implementing VISION ZERO, designed to eliminate all traffic fatalities, regardless of cause. The implementation requires three major items: good intersection design, proper control equipment and enforcement. The latter has been severely crippled by eliminating the red-light enforcement cameras. In late 2019, the commission, in its continuing efforts to achieve VISION ZERO, voted unanimously to continue the camera contract. Oh well, one step forward, two steps back.

Carlsbad Unified postpones graduations By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Graduations are rescheduled and students will not return to schools for the remainder of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those were the directions from the Carlsbad Unified School District Board of Trustees to Superintendent Ben Churchill during a May 13 meeting. High school graduations at Carlsbad and Sage Creek high schools have been pushed back until July 23, Churchill said. The board also discussed a flexibility plan for possible in-person ceremonies, but those details will come at a date as the board also agreed to seek advice from its legal counsel. “For those folks who have asked us to return to school immediately, we don’t have that latitude,” Churchill said regarding the April 30 order. “The public health order in San Diego County reads that public schools are to be closed until further notice. Until that is relaxed, we don’t have the authority to
change that.” “There’s not a scenario where it’s a light switch and we go back into largegroup gatherings,” Trustee Claudine Jones added. “We can have an opportunity to have something more traditional planned later on.” There are several steps to re-opening, Churchill said, which includes Gov. Gavin Newsom lifting the stay-at-home order, the San Diego County public health officer removing the public health order, districts must develop a “re-entry” plan and evaluate the May revised budget from the state, which was released last week. Currently, the county has met four of the five criteria to lift the order, he added. Robert Nye, assistant superintendent of instructional services, said remote online learning will continue until June 11 for underclassmen. Seniors will finish on June 5. “There’s still a big question mark as to when the governor will allow schools
to re-open,” Churchill said. Once the budget is analyzed, Assistant Superintendent Chris Wright said the district determines how to maintain a balanced budget and develop a path that remains solvent. Newsom’s $203 million budget is calling for at least 10% cuts in education and is tying those cuts to $1 trillion federal aid for states. However, if the federal aid comes through, the education budget wouldn’t be cut, according to a report from CalMatters. As for a fall re-opening, Churchill said the health and safety of the students is the top priority, especially for the most vulnerable children. The other two include physical space and then teaching and learning. However, cleaning and disinfecting supplies may be tough to obtain as a number of manufactures have ordering backlogs, he said. A district survey completed by 700 students and 1,300 parents revealed 99% of students know how to
access their assignments online, Nye reported, compared to 85% of parents. As for assigned work, 63% of students and 64% of parents said it was “just right,” while 34% of students and 18% of parents said it was “too much.” The district has also allocated 33 wireless internet hotspots and 800 Chromebooks to families and staff. However, one troubling trend has been an increase in vandalism and trespassing on school property. People have scaled fences, spilled paint, tunneled under fences, broken windows, and more, Churchill said. Fortunately, some staff and crews will return to campuses soon to clean and sanitize, which should help with reducing vandalism. Also, Churchill said the Carlsbad Police Department is being more aggressive with its patrols around schools. “I’m disappointed and frustrated that people are taking advantage of our community resources,” he added.
Encinitas commission rejects ‘climate emergency’ declaration By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — The city's Environmental Commission entertained two motions on May 14 recommending the Encinitas City Council to approve a resolution declaring a “climate emergency,” neither of which passed and both votes resulting in a 3-4 split. The Climate Emergency Declaration, authored by Commission Vice Chair James Wang, would recognize the “egregious dangers imposed by climate change” by citing “overwhelming scientific consensus” and encouraging local municipalities, businesses, and individuals to create policies and regulations accordingly. During the course of the meeting, the declaration received support from all commissioners, however, several questioned
whether the report itself was ready to be presented to the council. Commissioners debated adding further local ecological data and clarity to strengthen the pronouncement, and questioned whether the language itself should be simplified for public consumption. “We’ve learned a lot in the last few months from the COVID experience that really applies to climate change,” Commissioner Bisconer said. “But the timing is actually very good.” The Commission discussed the options available, either revising the Declaration and passing it as is, creating a subcommittee to delve deeper into specific issues, or holding it until further discussion. Public comments read aloud during the meeting underscored a common con-
cern — “Why now?” District 2 candidate Susan Turney expressed concerns with the final plan and its effects on housing plans, traffic, electricity consumption, and infrastructure overall. “I’m concerned that by declaring an emergency, the council will grant itself the power to bypass code, zoning, and city policies,” Turney said. Commissioner Wang said the city has ignored data for decades, noting that if Encinitas wants to be considered a leader in environmental conservation, then it needs to take the initiative. “All movements start in small cities and grow from there,” Wang said. “If we implement this here in our smaller cities, then it moves to the county, to the state, and through to the nation.”
Other Californian jurisdictions to declare a Climate Emergency include Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Diego, and San Francisco among two dozen others. A motion was presented to revise the report, fine-tuning data for a future presentation to the city council, however, it failed 3-4. Closely following, a motion to present the declaration in its current form to the city council also failed 3-4, resulting in no immediate action being taken by the commission at the meeting. Commissioner Wang expressed his intention to present the declaration at a future meeting for further discussion and once again, hold a vote to present it to the City Council at a future date.
SAN MARCOS — Elected officials and leaders representing San Marcos celebrated May 18 after Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that more counties may soon be allowed to accelerate their reopening process. City and county leaders have been vocal in recent weeks about their efforts to reopen the city as weeks-long stay-at-home orders are leaving many businesses struggling to avoid shutting down permanently. County Supervisor Jim Desmond, who represents San Marcos, released a video last week pointing out that “we can safely get thousands of people a day through grocery stores, but not a furniture store, not an electronic store, nor a car dealership can be fully open for business.” San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones has also been vocal about restrictions on businesses. She told The Coast News that she believes all businesses are essential because they employ people. “We should treat all business equitably. I believe that small businesses should be able to apply the same protocols as Walmart, Target or Costco to their businesses and be able to stay open,” Jones said. “It doesn’t make any sense to me because it’s showing favoritism to some bigger retailers because they happen to sell food.” More than 90% of businesses in San Marcos are small businesses, and many of them are not open because of statewide lockdown restrictions. “All of a sudden, we’re putting an added burden on smaller businesses that now need to come up with a website or shipping strategies so people can still shop and businesses can offer their goods online,” Jones said. Desmond and Jones share the same sentiment
in calling for the county to have full authority over when and how to open its businesses. “We are a government of, for and by the people,” Desmond said in his published video. “And we the people of California are facing the state’s new restrictions that hold our jobs and our economy hostage.” Jones told The Coast News that the city of San Marcos is preparing their local business owners and encouraging them to be ready to open up with new restrictions and safety measures in place as they wait for the green light. “We need to start moving forward,” Jones said. “Shutting down business and the economy for a prolonged period of time doesn’t make sense. We were asked to do so to help flatten the curve, but we’re not going to eradicate the virus, we were never asked to eradicate it.” Newsom’s latest revision to loosen restrictions will be based on each county’s ability to increase testing and stabilize their hospitalization and case rates.

prehensive funding plan, passed 4-1, with Supervisor Jim Desmond opposed. “The math has to work for me,” Desmond said. Desmond has been among the most aggressive of the county's elected officials pushing for an accelerated reopening of businesses and public facilities shuttered by the pandemic. In an interview on a conservative podcast May 12, Desmond noted that only a handful of the 222 coronavirus-related deaths recorded in the county so far involve patients without underlying conditions. The comment drew some critical note in regional press but Desmond said it is relevant to discussion on when businesses can reopen in the county. “Its just a fact and we need to take all facts under consideration,” Desmond told The Coast News. “I’ve been pushing to open businesses in San Diego County so we can get people back to jobs. I’m not saying other deaths were not significant. I’m not saying other deaths are not as tragic as any other [but there is] a small number who have died solely and clearly from the virus.” This week, Desmond said local pressure had played a role in Gov. Gavin Newsom's decision to relax some of the criteria for when businesses can reopen including a particularly contentious requirement that counties
record no coronavirus-related deaths for 14 consecutive days before entering “Stage 2” reopenings including dine-in restaurants, in-store retail and swap meets. Desmond said that goal, in particular, was unreachable in large urban counties such as San Diego, which reported 222 deaths from 3.3 million residence since the pandemic began but had not passed any two-
day period without at least once death since March 29. The county’s request to move further into Stage 2 of the state’s reopening plan was approved by Gov. Gavin Newsom Wednesday night. However, actual reopening of restaurants and shops cannot begin until businesses fill out the county’s Safe Reopening Plan form and post it publicly, Supervisor Nathan
Fletcher said in a tweet Wednesday night. The county also sent a letter to Newsom on Tuesday night asking him to approve a pilot program for Phase 3. If approved, it could allow for the reopening of certain facilities, including youth and sports clubs, salons, fitness clubs and outdoor religious services. County health officials reported 114 new

The ages of those whose deaths were reported Wednesday ranged from 61 to 99, all of whom had underlying health issues, said the county public health officer, Dr. Wilma Wooten. An estimated 4,089 people have recovered from COVID-19, while a cumulative 1,155 have been hospitalized and 355 have spent some time in intensive care. Helen Robbins-Meyer, the county’s chief executive officer, said Tuesday that the county meets Stage 2 acceleration criteria. According to the county, that criteria includes: — Less than 5% of daily COVID-19 hospitalizations over a seven-day period or no more than 20 COVID hospitalizations on any single day in the past 14 days; — Fewer than 25 new cases per 100,000 residents in the past 14 days or less than 8% testing positive in the past seven days; — A capacity to be able to test 1.5 per every 1,000 residents and at least 15 staff per 100,000 county population trained and available for contact tracing, and; — Hospital capacity for a possible surge of 35% of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 cases in addition to providing usual care for other patients.
Escondido urges looser restrictions By Tigist Layne
enue Storm Drain project, conduct a public hearing on TransNet Local Street Improvement Project as well as authorize the city manager to accept a grant from SANDAG Shared Streets Pilot Program. Julie Thunder, Encinitas mayoral candidate, questioned why the city council chose to entertain so many “non-routine” items in the consent calendar that could have been individual action items, without any option for residents to be physically present to represent their concerns. “I suspect this is a result of nearly canceling half of the City Council meetings,” Thunder said. “Now, you’re cramming two meetings worth of items into one agenda.” However, the council did vote on individual items in the calendar, often without in-depth discussion.
ESCONDIDO — The City of Escondido is one of several cities across San Diego County that has been calling upon the state to reopen non-essential businesses, and it seems there may finally be some movement. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced May 18 that more counties may soon be allowed to accelerate their reopening process if they meet certain criteria relating to case rates, hospitalization rates and testing. This comes after County Supervisors Kristin Gaspar, whose district includes Escondido, and Jim Desmond recently wrote a letter to Newsom urging him to loosen lockdown restrictions on businesses, stating that the “stay at home orders and other public health orders, while appropriate responses, have created economic hardships on individuals and businesses including property owners.” Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara was one of five North County mayors who recently took part in a meeting led by Desmond to discuss how to push these reopening efforts forward. “We asked the county public health officials to consider: If the rules for Costco and Home Depot are working, could we not use them for, let’s say, Bed Bath and Beyond?” McNamara said. “We need to get away from essential vs. non-essential businesses and look at what techniques work and what techniques don’t. Then let’s use those that are working to start opening up businesses.” McNamara said that many businesses are struggling under the current restrictions, adding that the city has received dozens of emails from people in the community who are in danger of losing their small businesses. “We are still in uncharted waters, and it is important to be cautious, but at the same time, there’s a balance here that needs to be discussed. We can’t just quarantine ourselves forever and hope everything will be okay,” McNamara said.
whether they served two or four years ago, the issues we have now will take them time to get up to speed. We haven’t had too many deadlocked votes. I don’t want folks to see us as a divided council. We are a united council.” After Hamilton’s resignation, residents and the council engaged in a weekslong debate on whether to appoint a replacement or call for a special election. In the end, residents gathered enough signatures to call for the special election. Schumacher and Councilman Keith Blackburn
were both elected in 2016 as at-large candidates. It was the last at-large election in the city, as Carlsbad moved to district elections in 2018, where Hamilton, Mayor Matt Hall and Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel (District 3) all won. This year districts 2 and 4 will be decided on Nov. 3. Blackburn, who is running for a fourth term is challenged by Lela Panagides in District 2. Teresa Acosta and Phil Urbina are contending for District 4. The council vacancy will be filled by the winner of the District 4 race.

but we want to know where everybody stands. So, the next people that get killed, people will know right where to go.” Longtime Encinitas resident Dr. Patrick Davis, who is the father, husband and brother-in-law of the Grandview bluff-collapse victims, is a co-founder of the SoCal Bluff Alliance and also backs SB 1090. “In a coastal city like ours, where ocean cliffs exist, we need to prioritize protecting human lives on our beaches,” Davis told the Encinitas City Council just weeks after the tragic incident. “It may come by building protective walls or providing for constant sand replenishment or making certain beaches off-limits.” McDermott also created a website outlining the proposed legislation and shared an online petition, which has thus far received 3,446 signatures. The bill has received a wave of support across San Diego County, including endorsements from Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, Encinitas mayoral candidate Julie Thunder, Encinitas District 2 candidate Susan Turney and 76th Assembly District candidate Melanie Burkholder. On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to support the legislation, with Supervisor Nathan Fletcher voting against. But the legislation has received strong resistance from Surfrider Foundation and the state’s Coastal Commission, which voted to oppose the legislation last week. According to a Coastal Commission staff report, SB 1090 will effectively override requirements within Section 30253 of the Coastal Act, requiring the com-

mission and local governments to approve “coastal armoring projects,” such as seawalls, berms and retaining walls, without sufficient time for review. Ultimately, this would lead to a permanent loss of public beaches “for the temporary benefit of the relatively few landowners fortunate enough to own oceanfront property,” the report states. Jim Jaffee, a co-chair of Surfrider Foundation’s beach preservation committee, said the increase of seawalls will essentially destroy the beach. “Our biggest opposition (to SB 1090) is the detrimental effect seawalls have
on the shoreline,” Jaffee said. “If we fix the beach with concrete, there will be no beach. How can the beach be safe if there is no beach?” Jaffee said the bill would “gut the protections” under current state law regarding seawalls, change the effective date for existing structures to May 1, 2020, and provide temporary protections for blufftop properties while eliminating the beach for the general public. Jaffee also believes McDermott, who recently purchased a home along the bluff on Neptune Avenue in Leucadia, has an inherent conflict of interest in his
support of SB 1090. “He’s worried about his property,” Jaffee said. “But the only people sacrificing will be the beachgoing public.” Bates, who represents the 36th District covering South Orange County, North San Diego County and Camp Pendleton, acknowledged Jaffee’s concerns of shoreline reduction but noted the bill does attempt to mitigate these issues. “I’m not disputing that when there are seawalls, you lose beach,” Bates told The Coast News. “But when you’re replenishing, you are basically repairing the beach. This particular bill requires individuals seek-
Encinitas summer camps await county guidance By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — Only weeks before summer camps are scheduled to begin, Encinitas’ parks and rec programming is at a complete standstill, waiting on direction from San Diego County. Officials in charge of educational and recreational programming continue to wait for guidance from the county, unable to make official decisions in regards to scheduling, location, and COVID-19 related adjustments until county health officials addresses the issue. Until the county does so, all programming is paused and registration on hold, affecting not only staff but also local families counting on summer programming as a reliable form of child care. The city’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department is working to accommodate all programs for any possible coronavirus restrictions levied by the County. Recreation Services Manager Travis Karlen laid out a series of possible precautions to keep residents safe, including increased sanitization, thermometer usage and social distancing
measures, keeping participants 6 feet apart. “We’re working through the challenges so we can potentially hold camps if the county amends the health order,” Karlen said. “Currently, we’re also offering online classes for youth and adults, as well as our Virtual Recreation page.” Marine Safety Captain Larry Giles is also facing challenges related to COVID-19 on the city’s shorelines. Giles estimates that between Memorial and Labor Day weekends, Encinitas beaches see around 10,000 students, including those in city and surf camps as well as other beach programming. They Encinitas Junior Lifeguard program hosts an average of 1,400 students alone. All such programming exists at the beaches, where available space is not only determined by the tide but the numbers of public beachgoers. In regards to canceling beach programming, Giles said, “We need to be patient before we postpone all these sessions for the next two to three months. It’s a fluid sit-
uation.” “If we don’t see a recommended list of conditions and access to public pools from the county, we’ll likely postpone the first two sessions in June and then re-evaluate for July,” Giles said, expressing a desire to continue as much programming as possible while maintaining safe conditions for all students and lifeguards. “These programs are important. Our Junior Lifeguarding Program is essentially our drowning prevention program. It’s geared to making a person more situationally aware and safer in the ocean.” “Our classes are very interactive and hands on,” Giles said. “When my lifeguards are instructing Junior kids, they’re pulling them out of rip currents and from getting held down by the surf. We’re very high contact with these kids and we want to ensure everyone’s safety.” Giles and Karlen both anticipate the county will recommend a list of health conditions and adjustments; neither was certain, however, when it would do so, suggesting an answer could
come as soon as this week or as late as July. Once the county has amended the health order, previously registered residents will be contacted and all information and approved policies will be found online on the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts webpage.
ing mitigation to provide that and it’s not an inexpensive process.” Bates said she put forth this legislation to have these types of discussions and she is open to amendments and revisions suggested by the committee. According to the California Coastal Records Project, the Grandview bluff, near the site where a portion of the cliff collapsed last August, was actively graded in the 1970s for the development of several Leucadia bluff-top apartments and condominiums. The removal of soil due to construction activity, in addition to stormwater drainage, irrigation from

blufftop properties and heavy rainfall have all been recognized as potential contributing factors of rapid bluff erosion. Additionally, the construction of groins, seawalls and concrete embankments along the shoreline may have increased the rate of shoreline retreat by preventing cliffs from naturally replenishing beaches with sand. David Revell, founding principal and chief scientist of Integral Consulting, an environmental consulting firm, said the building of seawalls is likely more responsible for bluff erosion than the development at the top of the cliffs. “To say that seawalls would help the public is a farce,” Revell said. “Coastal armoring shouldn’t be used as a public safety measure to protect private property unless there are substantial public benefits of the project for a set period of time. The priority should be protecting the beach and access to it. That’s where cities and counties get their revenue. “I don’t think the answer is to circumnavigate the Coastal Act to protect a few one-percenters that have had that property for 50 years and are paying next to nothing in property taxes because of Prop 13,” Revell said. But McDermott denied that SB 1090 was a property issue for him, and he believes organizations such as Surfrider are seeking “a rewilding of the coast in urban areas at any cost.” “I grew up here,” McDermott said. “It’s not like I’m some oil baron redneck that just showed up here and loves cement. The opponents say seawalls will be like a Berlin Wall from here to San Francisco. But nobody mentions the safety issue.”

As we continue to adapt to new-normal distances, we understand the lengths that you’re going to protect you and your family. Though this doesn’t have to come at the cost of your hearing health. At Rancho Santa Fe Audiology, we’re here to make sure you’re connecting with the ones that you love, with the cutting-edge hearing strategies you deserve. Whether virtual (a.k.a. telehealth) visits for those who prefer to connect from the comfort of their homes, or private appointments, or even drive-up services, we’re here to provide you with safe and minimal-contact hearing aid repair and care.
The Era of Telehealth and Remote Hearing Aid Programming Even before the coronavirus pandemic changed our way of life, telehealth offered a convenient solution for people living in remote areas where access to health care was a challenge. For those with hearing loss, remote programming capabilities for hearing devices were one of the first tech updates to gain popularity. Some hearing device manufacturers are taking things a step further by focusing on technology that allows audiologists to deliver in-depth hearing health care remotely. This is essential, given side effects of hearing loss such as loneliness, anxiety and depression. The isolation required to slow the spread of COVID-19 through quarantine and social distancing is making the problem worse for individuals with hearing loss; doctors are reporting an increase in stress and depression among these patients. Access to technology is an important part of overcoming these hurdles, now so more than ever. While not all hearing devices have remote programming capabilities, and most audiology services require an in-office visit, at Rancho Santa Fe Audiology, we have discovered some creative ways to help our patients virtually.

VET Tv supports veterans amid COVID By Catherine Allen
CARLSBAD — In 2017, streaming network Veteran Television (VET Tv) began producing comedy shows that brought together a community of veterans. Now facing COVID-19 isolation, VET Tv calls for an even greater push for social connection. Based in Carlsbad — home to nearly 6,300 veterans — VET Tv produces multiple military comedy shows for an audience of about 41,000 monthly subscribers. Responding to the pandemic, VET Tv recently launched campaigns to educate and encourage veterans to strengthen relationships virtually. “We’re reminding people that we have to stay connected to each other and to our greater military community during this time, or our mental health will suffer even further,” VET Tv founder and Marine Corps veteran Donny O’Malley said. “This is so important, and this is actually the foundation of everything we do, which is just to try to facilitate connection. Doing that now is all digital.” Each VET Tv episode ends with a reminder for the viewer to text someone they served with. Referring to hundreds of reviews and testimonials, O’Malley says this simple outreach reestablishes powerful connections based on a shared military experience. Virtual connection is becoming a greater necessity for isolated veterans. According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Veteran Crisis Hotline experienced a 12% increase in calls, 20% of which were directly related to COVID-19. Organizations are developing new resources to aid veterans, including

the VA’s COVID Coach app, which helps veterans cope with stress and anxiety. But as far as building a community across all military jobs, from administration to aircraft mechanics, VET Tv is the first to do so. “[Donny’s] seen a lot of things in his military experience, so I thought there’s no reason that he wouldn’t be a great resource to talk about what’s going on around coronavirus,” said Scott Yoffe, VET Tv’s PR specialist. “Social isolation is a big cause of suicides in the military. Everything [Donny] does is about building community to bring veterans together. “... With COVID we’re being told to socially isolate, so it’s a good opportunity for Donny to get out and talk about some of the things that veterans can do to help stay engaged so they don’t fall into that dark place.” To foster social connections, O’Malley and Yoffe are developing new content for VET Tv. Shows may range from animation to audience submissions — including a show for bringing veteran musicians together virtually. “At our core, that is the power we have as a television network and as a media source — we can re-create experiences for these
people that no one else is doing,” O’Malley said. “I believe that is the power of comedy and the power of Veteran Television for this community.”

pacts on the surrounding environment. But according to Wiles, concerns raised by residents never quite reached that CEQA bar of “significance.” “The project has mitigated any of the potentially significant effects, and there is no substantial evidence that the project will have a significant effect on the environment,” she said. In its letter, Procopio argued that the district should have completed a wildfire evacuation study as part of its review process — adding that evacuation may take longer because many of the new classrooms will be closer to the southern portion of campus — away from the entrance at its northern edge. Several speakers at the May meeting concurred. Diane Nygaard, cochair of the North County Sierra Club’s conservation committee, called such a study a “common sense investment in safety.” “It helps first responders come up with a meaningful evacuation plan, making the school and the entire neighborhood saf-

Jordan has a longtime endorsement deal with Upper Deck and the items he’s scribbled his name on are hot. “As soon as the news came out about ‘The Last Dance,’ we started getting hits on our site from people wanting pieces to buy,’’ Masherah said. Upper Deck’s collection of Jordan-signed artifacts is impressive. Upper Deck goes beyond selling
signed basketballs, offering collectors Jordan’s John Hancock on pictures, jerseys, posters, shoes, handprints and more. What is it about Air Jordan that makes people get sky high? “Michael was so dominant and so good that any of us who grew up watching him remember that g reat ness ,’’ Masherah said. “We are seeing his greatness again MASHERAH through ‘The Last Dance.’” “There is another generation that never saw him play, but they know his brand because it is so much bigger than any other athlete. There are literally millions of people around the world wearing his name and brand on their
er,” she said during the May meeting. “All we ask is for you to do this study, and complete it before the school is occupied.” The district has been working with consultant Dwayne Mears to respond to some of the community’s main concerns with the MND — a move that was not required as part of the district’s environmental review process. Mears’ review concluded that the project is “an improvement over the current condition.” “You’re reducing congestion, you’re providing better fire lanes, you’re providing better access through the drop-off zone so that if there is a real emergency, you have the potential to get in with emergency vehicles, and you have greater ability to evacuate the site as well,” Mears said. The project, which was preapproved by the City of San Diego Fire Marshal, would move classrooms at least 25 feet away from the edge of the canyon, and provide a 20-foot-wide fire lane at the campus’s entrance, compared with the 10-footwide lane that exists now. At the meeting, the project’s supporters argued
that further environmental review would only cause delay and drain school district funds and likely not result in an improved project. “If we had to design the school 1,000 different times, it would be identical to this,” said parent Mike Milligan. With the project now approved, the redesign awaits final review by the Division of the State Architect before going out to bid. According to district staff, the project could break ground as early as late June. Pending the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, the new school is anticipated to open in the fall of 2021.
body.” In one episode, a fan seeks an autograph from Jordan but is quickly whisked away by a security guard. “It’s tough for someone as big as Jordan because if he signs one, all of a sudden he has to sign a thousand things and he doesn’t have time for that,’’ Masherah said. “So typically he only signs for us because of our relationship of close to 30 years.’’ That infrequency, combined with Jordan’s popularity, has delivered a revenue spike for Upper Deck. While the high-end
items aren’t right for all, Upper Deck has the upper hand for those willing to sign off, starting at $3,500. “If you see a great deal on a Jordan-signed piece on eBay or Facebook, run away as fast as you can from it because it’s probably not a legitimate signature,” Masherah said. “It’s hard to watch someone who always wanted an autographed piece spend $500$1,000 and get a fake. It’s like them throwing their money away.’’ Masherah, 42, tosses shade on those too-goodto-be-true prices because they usually are. Upper Deck guaran-
tees that Jordan’s signature is genuine. “You want to make sure it is authentic, that is the biggest issue,” said Masherah, who’s in his 14th year at the helm. “If you don’t have the certificate of authenticity that you can look up on our website, with the Upper Deck hologram on it, in reality it’s most likely fake.’’ The shifty Jordan had tricky moves. Masherah warns consumers not to fall for one when seeking their Jordan keepsake. Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him @jparis_sports

STORY OF SEA DISASTER
ONLY SOMEONE who lived there would find perfection at this usually closed-out beach break. Photo courtesy of Randy Dible
More from the life of Randy Dible waterspot
ll of my best stories begin with my being broke, and the following is no exception. The year was 1990 and I was once again penniless after having returned from a frustrating year in Australia. I am not exaggerating when I say broke. I had nothing but the clothes in my travel bag — no home, no money, no car, no work prospects, nothing as I limped home and was afforded the kindness of near strangers. I don’t recall where I was living when I was invited to share a house with Bill Dice and my longtime friend Steve Pinner. The place was two blocks from the white sands of Solana Beach and proved to be a new chapter in my life. I
will never forget them and the others who helped me stagger to my feet and encouraged me to continue writing. Many people who would become influential in changing my life visited that house. Among them were Bob and Rita Bohanan, who hired me as the editor of Longboarder Magazine; Steve Cleveland, who trusted me to direct the first longboarding movie in modern times; a guy who went by the name Mace and had acquired the habit of putting words together in a unique way; a surf entrepreneur named Sam Ryan; a cute young woman named Tracy, who would become my wife; and an aspiring surf photographer named Randy Dible. While all the others are well worth a story of their own, this one primarily concerns Dible. I remember him as solidly built with a way about him that put me in mind of a highly alert guard dog as he took in the information around him and processed it quickly.
He would need those traits for his chosen professions that included commercial fishing and photography. As a fisherman, Dible could catch fish where there were none. As a photographer, he saw things that went right past most people. That is what also made him a good traveler, as he weaved his way through some of the most dangerous regions of Mexico with his wife, children and all of their belongings crammed into some old rust-and-duct tape station wagon chasing some mythic point wave far below the border, scoring world-class waves with nobody around while befriending the dreaded federales, those often corrupt individuals who often exercised their power to destroy the lives of the foolish and unaware. As a photographer, Dible never needed to sign his photos. Anyone who knew the surfing world could tell they were his because of their unique style.
Shots of empty point waves with a solitary surfer slumped on the bow of a panga while checking the lineup, hollow tubes taken in the La Jolla reefs, where most other photographers would be sent packing. The cast of characters, each worthy of their own Steinbeck novel, that came into focus include: Joel Tudor, Tom Wegener, Chris Olivas and Michael Myers. It is no wonder Dible is so involved in the world of surf. His mother once owned a surf shop in San Diego and his grandparents were world travelers who fished and surfed along the beaches of La Jolla and Mission Beach long before it was fashionable to do so. There’s always something of those deep roots showing in a Dible print, revealing the timeless beauty of the ocean and the characters who regularly haunt it.

FIGHT AGAINST DYSLEXIA Dr. David Bloch, a Carlsbad eye doctor, is helping students fight dyslexia. Courtesy photo
New medical discovery corrects dyslexia with incredible results A Carlsbad eye doctor is helping students of all ages fight against Dyslexia, a learning disability affecting roughly 15% of all Americans. Dr. David Bloch, a licensed eye-care provider, along with Dr. Bruce Dow, a former professor at Walden University, have combined new developments in brain, vision and reading sciences to establish the Reading Without Limits program. The Reading Without Limits program was developed to test and help students master reading and correct their Dyslexia. In general, struggling readers have grade-appropriate verbal skills, vocabulary and intelligence. But they confuse this information when reading silently or aloud. “Dyslexic students are intelligent people, they just can’t read the words on the page,” Dr. Bloch said. “The answer lies in reprogramming how the brain looks at information.” Reading Without Limits incorporates a specific set of reading drills that reprogram how the brain stores and retrieves information, helping poor readers learn to recognize words immediately, improve reading fluency, increase reading speed and comprehension in less than three months. “One teacher told me she has never had a student make this kind of reading advancement in her 20 years working in the education system.” said Dr. Bloch. Marianne, a resident of Fallbrook, was running out of options for treating her son’s Dyslexia. As a second-grade student, Marianne’s son was reading at a kindergarten level and his learning disability was a source of frustration for the entire family. After visiting Dr. Bloch and enrolling her son in the Reading Without Limits program, Marianne has seen dramatic changes in her son’s reading
ability and comprehension. “Dr. Bloch has changed my son’s life,” Marianne said. “Within one month, my son is bringing me chapter books to read. Word recognition, fluency, reading speed and confidence have improved 100% from where we started. It is an amazing program!” By fully committing to the Reading Without Limits program, beginning readers can raise their reading scores by two to three grade levels in approximately 8 to 12 weeks. More experienced readers can increase their reading speed threefold while maintaining comprehension. Even students with Dyslexia show immediate progress and are able to read complex words on their first training session. All students enrolling in this program become more motivated and confident readers in a few short weeks. But more importantly, they can eliminate anxiety and self-esteem issues that may have prevented them from achieving more. Approximately 30% of the population has a reading problem of some kind, and due to the lack of effective reading resources, parents and students have wasted thousands of dollars seeking effective help. Fortunately, a new breakthrough approach is now available in Reading Without Limits. “I started out to help kids read better, but when I got finished, I found a solution for Dyslexia,” Dr. Bloch said. “Using Reading Without Limits, I can make anyone a better reader and do it faster than traditional reading programs.” Please visit www.readingwithoutlimits.info or call 760-730-3711 and book an appointment and receive a $100 Off a 4-Phased Reading Evaluation. Tele-Health consultation is available during COVID-19 crisis. Their practice is located at 2814 Roosevelt St. Suite B, Carlsbad, CA.
Amidst all that is going on in our world, it is nice to know that there is a friendly and reliable dental practice in your community. Dr. Gregory Hurt and the San Marcos Dental Center have been providing quality dental and health services for San Diego and the general Southern California region for the last 30 years. Based in San Marcos, Dr. Hurt and his practice have developed a large base of satisfied clients who take pride in their healthy and impressive smiles, as much as his team takes pride in creating and maintaining those smiles. His practice keeps up with the leading technologies within the dental field and they feel confident that their services will satisfy your expectations. Dr. Hurt’s work ethic is grounded in his strong family roots. His father and grandfather were farmers until they collaborated in the invention of the farm multi-spread system. His father Oscar took flying lessons at 16 with his earned pay, and after high school he took the Army Air Corps (Forces) entrance exam and entered as a cadet, most Cadets had at least 2 years college. He eventually became United Airline’s first flying General while moonlighting for the California Air National Guard. Dr. Hurt younger years included chores, helping his mom and dad remodel houses as they moved more frequently as an air force “brat,” and developing a love of baseball. After high school he even was invited to pursue a baseball career, but his father reminded him of his responsibility to our nation and the pitfalls of having a baseball career

that may falter from injury, and they did not make much $ in 1969 professionally. He ultimately volunteered to join the Air Force where he was trained as an instrument/auto-pilot specialist. He cross-trained into the dental field as a dental technician and he also passed his physical and pilot qualifications for Cadet school. The passage again divides… and again, after careful contemplation, he decided on Dentistry.. Dr. Hurt graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Biology and continued doing a Masters in Kinesiology when he applied for Dental School. He was a serious candidate for Loma Linda, USC, UCLA and Washington University… but one of his best friends talked him into going to Georgetown. His dad was happy too, although he had a concern. While building a fence on the family’s avocado ranch in Bonsall, his father turned to Greg about five minutes after informing his dad of his decision and said “Son, I think it’s great that you’re going into the dental profession… but I think your grandfather wouldn’t mind if you decided to change the spell-
ing of your last name!” Dr. Hurt countered that he was tempted to change his middle name to “Doesn’t”! Soon after that, he was at Georgetown University studying dentistry. At Georgetown, Dr. Hurt trained under Dr. Gustav Kruger, the father of oral surgery, and graduated in 1983. It was again a great school and this helped pave the way for Dr. Hurt leading to the successes that he is experiencing today. Throughout his journeys, he has treated a variety of patients. Some in prisons, some down in Mexico, some through the “Flying Samaritans,” a voluntary program. He notes that there is no better feeling than that of helping people, and not just in dentistry. While as a student he also worked as a community leader in in Westlake Village and was one of the leaders forming that community’s swim teams in the area. As a dad he volunteered in coaching baseball, helped form LCYO, and coached soccer as well. While enrolled at UCLA he worked as the Assistant Aquatics Director teaching swimming classes and SCUBA classes with his PADI Instructor’s License. Dr. Hurt has a long career of community involvement. Today, Dr. Hurt and the San Marcos Dental Center do so much. His practice has the unique skill of being able to handle a broad spectrum of treatments, whereas other general practices frequently sub-contract to other specialist. He has extensive experience in endodontics (root canals) as well as most areas of treatment including cosmetic dentistry, laser whitening, laser surgery, implants, periodontal disease, crown and
bridge work, dentures and surgery for simple and more complicated extractions such as wisdom teeth. Even with his talents, Dr. Hurt prefers to refer some cases, such as complicated orthodontics, surgery, periodontics and endodontics. You can always feel “safe” with his recommendations and treatment. Ironically enough, “Dr. Hurt” makes all of his patients feel comfortable. Ultimately, he does not want to “hurt” people and, when asked, tells them the story of his father and how the respect for his grandfather and the family has always been important.. Dr. Hurt holds certifications in Implantology, Principles of Osseointegration and Jaw Reconstruction, Advanced Periodontal Surgical Techniques, and Esthetic Materials and Techniques. His training allows him to provide treatment for almost any dental emergency and his use of conscious sedation techniques allows him to put those patients who “fear dentistry” at ease prior to and during their visit. Their practice is a 24-hour Emergency Dentist Center and there for you whenever an emergency arises. San Marcos Dental Center is centrally located and easily accessible just south of Hwy 78 at 162 South Rancho Santa Fe Rd. in San Marcos. If you are looking for a new, professional, and courteous team to treat your dental needs then look no further. Please call 760-7344311, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their web site at sanmarcosdentalcenter.com, and ask about their $89 cleaning, x-ray and exam special for new patients.
Encinitas Ballet director expresses deep gratitude Encinitas Ballet Executive Director Sayat Asatryan would like to let everybody know that the community is still alive during the recent health crisis that we find ourselves in. Over 11 years ago, he moved to Encinitas and created Encinitas Ballet. This academy was created for the whole community, it is for everybody and he is very grateful to be here. He understands this a difficult time for everyone, but in reality, he is so optimistic when he greets each new day and appreciates the beautiful sun and flowers. Sayat feels very blessed and wants to share his thoughts with the community. He understands that many young families do not know how to react with this current adversity, and he wants them to be patient. He also wants to convey to all his students that there is still a need for a little time before everyone goes back to the ballet academy as it was. He wants to say thank you to all of his patrons and students who have been very supportive. He
wants to acknowledge all of the parents and friends who have come to the center’s performances and who have supported the Encinitas Ballet. He wants all of his supporters to know that he is thinking about them, and while their performance for “Swan Lake” was canceled, they will perform this at a later date at no charge t o the community. H e wants to remind ev-
eryone to be patient and respectful because we are living in an environment where we have many multicultural families. Sayat and
his team respects everyone and cares deeply for their audience. He is so pleased that after his students leave the Encinitas Ballet, move to d i fferent states, and countries, they come to us, back to their first teachers and take classes online. He understands online classes are hard, especially for the little ones, but this not only affects the Encinitas Ballet, it impacts everybody. It is important to stay together, respect each other and we will survive this together. He wants to remind everyone that It is important to maintain your education a n d your physical exercise. The artistic director for the Encinitas Ballet and his wife, Olga Tchekachova, both came a long way to get to the United States.
GABRIELLE FISH, Encinitas Ballet’s principal dancer.
Sayat Asatryan had no money for food and he slept on the train station floors waiting for the trains. From his small apartment it took two hours each way to get to the studio and he had only 4-5 hours sleep each night, but he made his dream come true. And if his dreams came true, so can yours. “The Coast News has always supported us, they care about the community.” Sayat said. “The memories they capture are important to us and the community and we appreciate the job they do.” He wishes everyone the best and to please be patient. He is proud to be able to work out of The California Institute of Human Science, an amazing place Encinitas Ballet calls home, and he appreciates their support. He is happy to be in Encinitas and sharing not only his dance experience but his experience on loving life. The Encinitas Ballet is located at 701 Garden View Court, Encinitas, CA and they can be reached at 760632-4947. www.EncinitasBallet.com

Put some color in your garden for a vibrant, living canvas
hat is your color palette? When I shop at the garden center, I am almost always attracted to bright colors. My favorite pairing is bright yellow and deep purple, two complementary colors on the color wheel. My interest in pure bright hues began when I travelled to Oaxaca and Taxco with my family in the eighth grade. As a young person from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I had never seen the colors and vibrancy of design that existed in the pottery and textiles we found in the Mexican markets and craft shops. Plant the colors you love and that go with your house. One of my favorite examples of an in-depth study in color is the Monet garden in Giverney, France. American Elizabeth Murray worked and studied in his garden in France and her book, “Monet’s Passion” (Pomegranate Books, 1989), is a record of her gardening experiences at Giverney. Her notes and photographs are stunning and informa-

tive. She recorded, “Monet’s home was bright salmon pink with sea green shutters. In his garden the monochromatic island flowerbed is planted in front of the house echoing the color scheme of pinks and greens. Pink tulips are edged in white, and planted with a deeper rose tulip. The overplanting is pink, rose and red English daisies, which are perennials. The collection changed with the seasons, but the colors remained the same. The garden became a living canvas of color that he would later use in his paintings.” We may not all have the resources or a sizable garden space to work in such as Monet had, but we can create vibrant color statements in our own yards and patios. While shopping at An-
derson’s La Costa Nursery in Encinitas, I came upon a stunning collection based on the analogous colors of purple, magenta and deep pink. These color combinations work together because they are three “neighbors” on the color wheel, and can give instant success to the gardener looking for pizzazz in their yard. This grouping combines tall deep purple Scabiosa, which are interspersed with multi-color Gerbera Daisies. And in the background, Alstroemeria presents a flash of background color. Both the Scabiosa and Alstroemeria are perennials, which will last in your garden for years. “The Yellow House,” as Carlsbad neighbors fondly know it, represents classic Victorian style and a picture
perfect garden. Painstakingly restored by Dru White and her partner Mayur Pavagadhi, the two have put as much painstaking effort into their home as their restaurants, which include Witch Creek, Sleeping Tiger Coffee, Barrio and Paon. Dru, who has been an “interior designer and collector her whole adult life,”
has left no stone unturned to be certain the 1910 Victorian home and the large 1-acre yard combine into one magnificent property. “We chose a variety of daisies to keep the front yard simple and to coordinate with the color of our home. Even the picket fence fits right into the Victorian look we were creating. Our gardener, Coleman Lydon, has placed and pruned each plant to create a symmetrical look.” The monochromatic choice of a yellow Marguerite Daisy and a yellow Chrysanthemum allows the eye to view the perimeter of the yard in one glance. The Marguerite can be pruned as it increases in size over the summer months. The ever-so-slight variance
of the yellow theme comes from the addition of a shiny green and yellow Golden Triumph Boxwood placed alternately among the daisies. Their home is a triumph, and as Dru says, “ I have found what I want to do. This home is my life.” Whether you have a large back yard or a patio, I hope you have learned from my “Introduction to Garden Color 101.” Jano Nightingale is a master gardener and horticulturist, and is former director of the Cornell Cooperative Master Gardener Program in Cooperstown, New York.

Wave of the past
Jim Gonzales, of Oceanside, gets rare cancer treatment at Scripps By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — For nearly six years, Jim Gonzales has been battling a rare, advanced form of cancer. After finally finding a drug that stopped the mass in his abdomen from growing, the COVID-19 pandemic shook things up for Gonzales. Gonzales, 52, has a rare and potentially deadly sarcoma roughly about the size of a volleyball in his abdomen. Sarcoma is a type of cancer that can occur in various places of your body and begin in the bones and soft tissues. For Gonzales, the sarcoma developed in soft tissue. Gonzales has gone through multiple treatments, has had two major surgeries and has had more than 20 tumors removed over the past six years. “The initial one was the size of a football,” Gonzales said. Nothing was stopping the mass from growing until October 2019 when Gonzales became a subject in the first phase of a clinical trial for an experimental drug called ALRN-6924, chemotherapy that targets a specific genetic mutation. For Gonzales, it was considered the last hope. Gonzales began traveling to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where the clinical trial was licensed to take place.
Every week, Gonzales would travel 1,400 miles to receive this drug. He would hop on a plane Monday, wake up early in Houston Tuesday, and go through treatment all day before hopefully being back in his Oceanside bed by midnight Wednesday. Back home Gonzales is a husband and father to two daughters, one in high school and the other a student at MiraCosta College, where Gonzales works as the director of student life. “I work with students on their college experience outside of the classroom,” he said. Gonzales has been with MiraCosta College for 25 years. He also recently retired from the Navy Reserve after 26 years of service. To be able to make the nearly $1,000 weekly trip to Houston from Oceanside, Gonzales said the family had to make some “major financial maneuvers.” The expensive and exhausting weekly trips were worth it to Gonzales though because the drug was working. It had stopped the growth of the mass, thus stabilizing his disease. Then COVID-19 happened. In the weeks leading up to the stay-at-home orders, Gonzales was concerned about the risk to his health by traveling back and forth between San Di-

ego and Houston as someone with a compromised immune system. Still, he was determined to get the treatment. Unfortunately, he received the news in March that his treatment in Houston would be stopped. The drug company had halted his clinical trial. “That was devastating to find out,” Gonzales said. Without the drug, Gonzales may have had to undergo another, life-altering surgery or possibly not survive the next 12 months. His doctor in Houston, Dr. Funda Meric-Bernstam, then began working with Dr. Kathryn Bollin, a medical oncologist at Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center in San Diego, to bring Gonzales’s treatment there. According to Bollin, there was a team of around 30 people who worked to make the switch happen. They were able to gain compassionate use approval from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of the drug, something Bollin said is uncom-

mon, and the drug company agreed to provide the drug for Jim’s therapy for free. This also established the San Diego location as a new treatment site for investigational therapy with the drug.
The initial [tumor] was the size of a football.” Jim Gonzales Scripps cancer patient
After going nearly two months without treatment, Gonzales resumed his treatments at Scripps MD Anderson on May 5. This includes an ongoing three weeks on and one-week-off cycle of IV once-a-week IV treatments, all of which are just 30 minutes away in San Diego. “The drug is working, there is no question,” she said. Bollin confirmed that the mass has not grown since it stopped in March.
Chemotherapy can be incredibly difficult for patients to endure. Gonzales has gone through his own fair share of rough chemo treatments and has even ended up hospitalized because of one. Bollin said Gonzales is fortunate for how well he is tolerating the treatment, which becomes more difficult to endure with time. She also said Gonzales has been able to maintain an “excellent quality of life” while undergoing the treatment, and he agreed. Gonzales experiences some nausea and fatigue with this treatment, but those are nothing compared to his previous treatments’ side effects. Plus, he doesn’t have to deal with traveling anymore. “My quality of life is so much better without the added burden of travel,” he said. Even with the COVID-19 hurdle, everything worked out “in a weird way” for Gonzales in the end. “I’m very blessed,” he said.
am enormously relieved I don’t look like Bozo the clown this morning. I did something rather dicey this weekend. I gave myself a permanent wave at home. My hair, like everyone’s, is growing out and was getting rather limp in spots. It has been decades since I’ve even thought about a self-administered perm. But I gathered up my courage and just did it, hoping that my hair wouldn’t fall out when I finished. You don’t see the home kits in stores, so I didn’t think women (or men) had perms done on their hair anymore. I haven’t heard of anyone getting a perm in years, but after I checked the internet, turns out it is still a go-to salon treatment. Permanent wave curls are something of an old friend to me. They were forced on me throughout my childhood by my hairdresser mother. She actually had her own shop, before she got married. Being possessed of really fine hair, the only way to get any oomph at all, back in the day before gel, was to go through the stinky and lengthy process of a “Toni.” First mom wound all my hair onto long, skinny rollers, as tightly as she could (ouch). Then it requires squirting a vile-smelling permanent wave solution on it, left on several minutes. TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B3

Veteran travel writer experiences COVID-19 impacts here, abroad hit the road e’louise ondash
ry to imagine LAX, the third-busiest airport in the world, looking like a ghost
town. That was the scene that welcomed Christopher Elliott and his three teens on their return from Europe last week. When their flight from Paris arrived in Los Angeles, the Elliotts expected that LAX would be bustling. “It wasn't,” Elliott explained on his website Elliott Advocacy (https:// www.elliott.org/). The veteran travel writer and consumer advocate writes weekly columns for several publications. “We assumed we’d see the usually-frenetic customs processing area. There were banners welcoming us to the United States, but no people.” He compared re-entering the country to being processed at a super-max prison or going into surgery. “You are greeted by a customs agent with medical mask. You fill out a declaration on where you’ve been and your medical symptoms.” The 22-hour flight home (11½ hours from Paris to

Los Angeles) also had been “very surreal.” “We went from Paris to L.A. on a plane that can carry 296 people,” Elliott said during a phone call from his temporary home in Spokane, Washington, where the family is quarantined for another week. “There were only 33 people on our flight. We had a whole section to ourselves.” This strange journey home was the conclusion to what was supposed to be the family’s last trip before
Elliott’s oldest son leaves for college. Because Elliott can work from anywhere and his 13-, 15- and 17-year-olds are schooled online, Elliott often rents a home for several weeks or months so the family can tour an area in depth. “I had planned a yearlong adventure to show the kids the Europe I grew up in,” he wrote in his blog. “I wanted them to hike the Alps with me, to see the Colosseum in Rome, to eat a krapfen at my favorite
Kaffeehaus in Vienna. And I could keep writing, and since my kids are homeschooled, they could continue their education while we were abroad.” Like so many of us, Elliott saw his travel plans fall victim to the COVID-19 pandemic and experienced just how seriously European countries take the meaning of social distancing. After leaving the United States in January, “we spent a month in Lisbon and Porto and one memora-
ble weekend on the island of Madeira,” Elliott wrote. The next stop was to be Italy, but in late February, “Italy turned into a red zone,” so the family detoured to France where “they were taking the virus seriously.” This meant that, after settling into an apartment in Nice on the French Riviera, “we couldn’t leave the house except to buy groceries or go to work. You could walk for one hour a day or visit a relative. Both residents and visitors had to carry an “attes-
tation” — a signed affidavit that you fill out online that you were on the way to work. The police did stop you. You had to put your address on the form and you couldn’t be more than 1 kilometer away or they would tell you to go home. Curfew was 8 p.m.” Other European countries are even more strict, Elliott said. In the United States, “we have voluntary self-quarantine. We are unmonitored. In Poland, you have to sign in on an app, take selfies twice a day with your location and record your temperature, too. If you don’t report within a certain amount of time, you get fined.” With travel curtailed for an unknown duration, Elliott, who sold the family car and home to stay longterm in Europe, admits that the future is a question mark. “This is the first time I’ve been in a situation when I don’t know what comes next,” he said. “I usually plan months in advance.” As far as Elliott’s work goes, “there’s a really great story to be written — the story of recovery” he said. “The travel industry is going to come back but how long is it going to take? I’m thinking of maybe going to a tourist town and seeing how it happens.” All in all, Elliott feels optimistic about the future. “I think there’ll be a happy ending,” he said.
LOCAL FAMILIES NEED YOUR HELP!
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our homes, our schools and our communities in ways we are just beginning to understand. While many of us struggle to manage the challenges brought on by school closures, workplace adjustments, and social distancing, the COVID-19 pandemic has further strained many of our local families through food insecurity; job loss, and housing uncertainty. Be Strong/Se Fuerte is a collaborative effort led by the Encinitas Educational Foundation (EEF) to support those families most in need. Through financial contributions from our community, EEF will provide funding to impacted families through the Encinitas Union School District's Community Liaison Program.

Then you rinse it under running water for a while. Then you apply the even-worse smelling neutralizer, leaving that on for a time, rinsing again and taking out the curlers, which do not come off easily (ouch again). Then you may not wash your permed hair for two to three days, or your work will be all for naught. This means you go around smelling like odd chemicals. During the stay-athome order was absolutely the best time to brave this, keeping those who had to smell or see my hair to a minimum. It had been so long since I had done this to my hair, I truly held my breath until the final curler came out. But to my astonishment, it worked. I now have curls in the right places. I’m convinced the ghost of my mother must have been standing at my shoulder. Based on the number of people who actually see my hair these days, it’s a wonder I care at all. But I’m not bald and I didn’t frizz or fry my hair, so I survived my walk on the wild side. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer occasionally slapping on some eye makeup, so as not to scare children.

Fifth-graders give special thanks SOLANA BEACH — Local fifth-grade teacher at Santa Fe Christian Schools, Cynthia Nixon, asked her students to do an extra homework assignment: draw a picture and write a note of appreciation to doctors and nurses. The students embraced the idea and Nixon sent photos of the students with their assignments to a friend at Sharp Grossmont Hospital who is including them in a special video for their medical team. The hospital also printed and displayed the phoVOLUNTEER
tos in its meditation room, where the small acts of gratitude help to ease anxiety of San Diego’s heroes. “I was blown away by the students’ response,” said Nixon. “We’d been learning what it means to think about others and I thought writing thank you notes to medical workers would help put this idea into practice. I wanted them to realize that there are people out there still working, and in some cases, sacrificing their personal safety in order to keep others safe and healthy.”

ou can’t miss the artwork on the fence in front of Moonage Food Co. in Leucadia, and, honestly, I don’t think boring is allowed in this space. It was the original home of Hago’s, then Lanai and now Moonage has made the space its own. The name is derived from the David Bowie song “Moonage Daydream,” which in itself makes this place worthy. The space is a direct reflection of the eclectic background of chef/ owner Tyler Mars and it’s a place that you are going to want to hang out once we can again. Until then, get there for some carryout. You can bask in its originality while some killer vinyl spins on the turntable and you wait for your food to go. Oh, and the food is not an afterthought — it’s unique and delicious. Tyler talks more about it in our conversation below.

Ahhh, another three-day weekend; time for a family BBQ or a quick get-away. But, while we’re all busy having fun, it is important to remember the true meaning of this holiday. It is a day for remembering the men & women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, this holiday originated after the American Civil War to honor soldiers from both sides. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. Many volunteers will place American flags in cemeteries to honor our fallen. Check with your local American Legion, VFW, or scout troop if you would like to participate in this special tribute. Plan your weekend of fun but please be sure to take a moment to honor those who gave all for our freedom to enjoy this weekend.

No matter which vine, it’s all about farming taste of wine frank mangio
hen talking vines, I suspect that most of our readers are thinking they are about to hear about Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sangiovese or other familiar grapes. Surprise! This week, we are throwing readers a curveball in the spirit of baseball, which hopefully will be starting soon despite the COVID-19 pandemic, with tomato vs. grape vines. This article features the most popular and famous tomatoes found in Italian kitchens — San Marzano. I will explain not only why San Marzano tomatoes are dominant in fine Italian cooking, but also where they come from. Let’s start with where they come from first. San Marzano tomatoes originate from the said named town near Naples. Folklore claims that the first seed came to Campania in 1770 as a gift to Naples from Peruvian royalty. These heirloom specialty tomatoes were first grown in volcanic soil near Mount Vesuvius. Amy Goldman, one of the foremost heirloom plant conservationists in the United States, calls the San Marzano “the most important industrial tomato of the 20th century.” Compared to Roma tomatoes that were bred from San Marzanos, San Marzano tomatoes have a thicker flesh, fewer seeds and a flavor/taste that is stronger, sweeter and less acidic, making them superior to their Roma offspring. This is why San Marzanos are king and sought out in Italian dishes over Roma and other tomato varietals. The good news is that for those now intrigued about growing San Marzanos, you can do so from the comfort of your home as seeds are available worldwide. The ones shown in the earlier picture were started from seed around Feb 15.. A great vendor and resource
for high quality seeds is Eden Brothers (edenbrothers.com). Additionally, a new home gardening method I discovered this year was Square Food Gardening, invented by the late Mel Bartholomew. His farming method focuses on dense, efficient, compact farming metthodologies so that anyone with a bit of space can farm with a plot that is divided into square foot sections that are only 6 inches deep. Details at squarefootgardening.org. Speaking of farming, one of the best virtual series I have discovered over the pandemic is Daniel Daou’s Tuesday AM Vineyard series. Daniel walks the vineyard fields with his team , sharing DAOU Vineyards’ above-and-beyond attention to detail. That includes practices leading to superior phenolics, such as less density per acre and canopy development to ensure that all fruit is ripe at the same time for perfect wines. As amazing a winemaker as Daniel is, after listening to his vineyard tours, one could claim he is just as good as a farmer. This seems to go hand in hand as neither Frank nor I can think of a wine that we enjoy that is made by a winemaker who is not an ardent farmer. Check out Daniel’s tours on Tuesday’s at 9 a.m. on Instagram Live (@daniel.j.daou). — Rico Cassoni

re you going to wear that shirt? We’re gonna be late,” my wife says, coming out of the bathroom where she has been doing her hair. I’m still working on a project for work that got away from me and wearing the clothes I woke up in. “Late for what?” I ask. It feels like a valid question considering we’ve been staying home since mid-March. “We have happy hour with Nate and Erin in a few minutes,” she replies, and I remember. “I’ve got to finish this. I’ll meet you guys in a bit. It won’t take long,” I reply, and she leaves the room. While I finish what I’m doing, I hear the creak of her older laptop opening, and the hellos, and the laughter of our friends’ kids in the background. The rise of video chat software — Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Messenger, Skype — has enabled us to connect socially in ways that weren’t as ubiquitous just a few months ago, when we could actually go to a happy hour but often didn’t. It’s not that my wife and I didn’t enjoy happy hour then or meeting friends or drinking, it was just hard to find the right time, right place or right mood. When an invite came along, “It’s not you, it’s us” often applied. Nationwide safer-athome orders and business closures changed all that. Now we’re at home along with many of our family, friends and colleagues. Beer, wine and booze can be delivered, and nothing makes life feel more normal than having a drink with some friends. It started with an exploratory Zoom chat with the parents. More worried check-in than anything, but it spiraled quickly. Soon we were reconnecting with friends locally and across the country. Then extended family members. Now we have standing weekly meetups with a variety of friends and family. Color-coded invites fill my Google Calendar, and our

intake of alcohol has gone up significantly. Before COVID (BC), my wife would interact with dozens of colleagues at work every day. Even working from home, I would have my regular interactions at the coffee shop, picking up groceries for dinner, with the neighbors and even the woman from USPS who delivers the mail. Seemingly throwaway interactions that all added up to keeping us a level of sane (arguably) that was an important part of the day. Then one day in mid-March my wife was told to stay home from work, and everything closed seemingly simultaneously. Yet now we’re socially busier than ever. We’re lucky to still have some work, and those throwaway interactions have been replaced by meetups with people we really care about. People who we always think of too late or live in different time zones from. Family we love, but don’t see very often. It’s as simple as putting on a clean shirt —well, a shirt — cracking a beer, opening the computer and smiling. Actually, seeing people is important. I’m sure there are studies that prove it, but it doesn’t seem necessary to find them. We can feel it as we see their laugh lines crinkle, seeing them cry, smile and explain. Seeing kids run into, and out of, the screen, seeing what they are drink-

ing—local craft beer for him, hard kombucha for her, whiskey for me, and virtually toasting each other has brought us closer together as friends and family. The seeing closes the distances between us. We are participating in each other’s lives more than ever. None of this happens without video chat and a pandemic. For the first time in our adult lives, our family and friends have mostly all been home*, and often available. The shadow of COVID-19 is still there. It won’t be going away anytime soon, but yesterday I attended my grandpa’s 97th birthday via FaceTime. Tomorrow, my wife
will get drinks with her co-workers after work, and later this week our standing couples date will be interrupted by their rambunctious, albeit hilarious, kids again, and ultimately we’ll tip our glasses to the screen before saying, “See you next week!” It isn’t the same as being there, but it is still being there. If you’ve haven’t heard, the Cheers! North County podcast is now out in the world. Listen to my interviews with interesting people over a beer, coffee or cocktail Find it wherever you find great podcasts. *If you’re an essential worker, you’re amazing, and thank you, thank you, thank you.

But you could be in for a pleasant shock when someone finally sends a reply to a request you made so long ago that you almost forgot about it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s a time to expect the unexpected. So don’t be surprised if a decision that just recently seemed final suddenly opens up and leaves you with another chance to make an important choice. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Taking a different tack on a work project might rankle some colleagues. But the positive results of your innovative course soon speak for themselves. Celebrate by doing something fun this weekend. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Meeting new associates can be awkward, even if you’re in a high positive phase right now. Best advice: Make them feel comfortable, and you’ll soon forget your own discomfort. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s a good time for you social Lions to blowdry your manes, polish your claws and look like the Fabulous Felines you are as you make new friends and influence the influential. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Expectations run especially high this week, and you should feel confident in your abilities to take advantage of what might be offered. A colleague has some advice you might find helpful.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A recent flurry of activity leaves you in need of a little breathing space, and you’d be wise to take it. Close family members should have an explanation about an emergency situation that just passed. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An insensitive act makes a difficult situation more so. But try not to waste either your physical or emotional energies in anger. Move on and let others fill the clod in on the facts of life. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It’s a good time to look into that training program or college course you’ve been considering. You might have a good place to use those sharpened skills sooner rather than later. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Education dominates much of your aspect during this week. You might want to start checking out those summer session courses that could help advance your career plans. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Progress often comes in fits and starts. But at least you’re moving straight ahead with no backsliding. You should soon be able to pick up the pace and reach your goals in due time. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be wary of a deal that gives confusing answers to your questions. Remember: It’s always risky swimming in unknown waters, so you need all the help you can get to stay on course. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of bringing people together and creating close friendships wherever you go. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
