Carlsbad OKs $5M business loan program


By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — After weeks of input and discussions with small businesses and several business organizations, the Carlsbad City Council approved a $5 million loan program in response to the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will make available at least $4.4 million for loans with a tentative launch on May 25, although it could be sooner, according to David Graham, the city’s chief innovation officer, during the council’s May 5 meeting. Applicants must hold a valid business license as of March 1, 2020, be in good standing with the city and funds can cover rent, payroll, mortgage interest and utilities.

Fairgrounds, Crossroads of the West settle gun show lawsuit By Lexy Brodt

DEL MAR – A lawsuit between the Del Mar Fairgrounds’ governing board and Crossroads of the West Gun Shows ended in a settlement last week, after the Utah-based company sued the fair board in early 2019 due to a moratorium placed on the Del Mar gun show. The outcome will allow gun shows to continue at the state-owned property through the end of 2020 — though such a reality is contingent on the mandates of public health officials, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The gun shows will come to a halt once more in January 2021, when a bill

The gun shows have long been controversial in North County, though opposition spiked in recent years due to the prevalence of mass shootings nationwide. The shows, which have been held for the past 30 years, draw gun enthusiasts from across the state and beyond. Merchants at the show sell guns, gun parts, ammunition, and other items.

Local business owners in limbo, worried about survival By Caitlin Steinberg

ENCINITAS — As the City of Encinitas begins to survey the full scope of it’s economic damage in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, residents and business owners remain worried that a majority of business may still close, despite Governor Newsom’s May 1 announcement reopening select industries across California. Though Encinitas has yet to release the full accounting of how many businesses benefitted from any coronavirus relief options, officials from the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce report the numbers are both low and misleading. Encinitas Chamber of Commerce’s Interim-CEO, Sherry Yardley, submitted the Chamber’s current numbers, alongside with the Leucadia, Encinitas, and Cardiff 101 Mainstreet Associations to the City Council this Tuesday, revealing that while approximately 62% of business applying were granted aid, only 50% have received funds todate, the remaining 50% still waiting, with little to no communication from the SBA, for the funds to arrive. Furthermore, 32% of currently reported Encinitas businesses that applied for financial assistance were neither accepted nor denied, never receiving a response back. “People are frustrated and feel they’re in limbo,”

TAWNYA PROCTOR, owner of Noni Salon and founder of the #WeWant2Work movement in Leucadia, has found little success keeping her business, deemed non-essential, afloat during the coronavirus pandemic. Courtesy photo

Yardley said. “Some of them applied and haven’t heard back, some were accepted but haven’t seen any of the funds, and some were flat out denied for confusing reasons.” “We’re here to help as much as we can but it’s hard. Many of the issues stem from poor communication between federal and state governments, the SBA and banks. As a small business owner, it’s hard to keep up with it all and you’re the one stuck in the middle.” The Coast News was unable to locate a business whose experience wasn’t still fraught with complications and challenges. None of the business owners interviewed considered the federal aid as capable of ad-

equately covering expenses. Tawnya Proctor, co-owner of Noni Salon in Leucadia, experienced the confusion of SBA’s loan application process firsthand, having been both denied and accepted. When Proctor and her mother, a co-owner of the salon, applied for SBA loans as independent contractors, they were both denied. However when the Salon itself applied for SBA loan, specifically the Paycheck Protection Program covering their one administrative employee, it was accepted. “With the PPP, we didn’t get enough for that one employee’s salary beyond one month,” Proctor said. “Beyond that, it didn’t cover any business expens-

es, as advertised, and despite being accepted we still haven’t even seen any of the money.” Noni Salon hosts 11 independent contractors, not including her mother and herself, renting out booths to style and serve clients. Of those 11, only 1 was accepted for an SBA loan, a mere 5 have received their personal COVID stimulus checks, and only 1 has been approved for independent contractor unemployment. Despite days attempting to iron out issues with SBA officials over the phone, Proctor has found little success. “It gets to the point where you just get so defeated and it’s so sad because you put so much time and effort into your business,” Proctor said. On Tuesday afternoon, small business owners such as Proctor breathed a sigh of relief when San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously 5-0 to establish a framework for business openings, requesting complete independence from the state in choosing when and how local businesses open. Beginning Friday, April 8, businesses that reopen will be required to address five specific issues according to the newly established plan, including employee health and safety, return to work policies, workplace social distancing, employee training and compliance

and enhanced sanitation. As of April 8, not all business categorized as Phase 2 will yet be allowed to open, leaving much of San Diego County shut down. For now, Phase 3 businesses such as Noni Salon will remain closed and wait. This weekend, Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear commented on the differentiation between businesses labeled as essen-

nitas since April 11. This is something we can manage.” Despite new reopening procedures, businesses such as Noni remain in danger as the governor’s office estimated Phase 3 businesses may not open for several months. While Proctor applauded the county’s push for independence from the State in regards to determining local communities’ individ-

It gets to the point where you just get so defeated and it’s so sad because you put so much time and effort into your business.” Tawnya Proctor Owner of Noni Salon in Leucadia

tial under Phases 2 and 3. “I think it’s quite possible for the definition of essential businesses to be much broader,” Blakespear said. “It’s possible to use those same precautions for essential businesses on restaurants and other shops of all types, even things such as hair and nail salons… everything that people want to get out and do. We can do that in a responsible way.” Blakespear acknowledged that ultimately, the decision was not hers and lay in the hands of the county, but insisted, “we have to get in front of this. We haven’t had a new case in Enci-

ual business timeline, she recognized problems still lay ahead in the coming months. “How long are our landlords going to support us and hold on together,” Proctor asked. “At the end of the day everyone has to pay somebody. It’s either them losing their entire building or them finding someone else who can pay rent.” With so few benefitting from SBA assistance and several months of closures still ahead, Encinitas’ business owners are left wondering, if these latest decisions will be enough to save businesses from folding.


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.

atorium on the gun shows — setting off a months-long cycle of legal and political action. Crossroads of the West sued the board in early 2019, citing a violation of its First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly. The legal action then sparked Gloria to propose — and later get passed — a bill (AB893) aimed at ending the sale of guns and ammunition at the fairgrounds. Although the resulting law won’t necessarily put an end to the show itself, Crossroads representatives and supporters have said that an “educational” version of the event would no longer be a “gun show.” Last summer, Crossroads of the West was able to secure an injunction from the U.S. District Court, allowing their shows to continue for the time being. This outcome still stands given the settlement — or it did until the novel coronavirus pandemic led to the cancellation of shows in March and the possibility of more cancellations in the future. The show usually occurs five times a year. For this reason, and with AB893 taking effect in January, local opposition groups don’t think the settlement will change much about the fate of gun shows in Del Mar. “The settlement didn’t yield anything,” said Rose Ann Sharp, Del Mar resident and founder of NeverAgainCA. “…We do not see that this settlement will have any impact on our ability or the state’s ability to go forward with AB893.” NeverAgainCA has been actively opposing the gun shows since early 2018. The group specifically takes issue with the sale of guns and ammunition on state-owned grounds in general, but has also spoken out against the “ghost guns” sold at such events. The term refers to gun kits — or unfinished guns that can be assembled at home without requirements for registration or background checks, and without a mandated waiting period. In March, both Del Mar and Solana Beach passed ordinances requesting the fairgrounds ban the sale of such kits. At this point, the fair board has not taken action on this issue. In a statement, NeverAgainCA said the settlement “was not unexpected,” given the financial challenges currently faced by the fairgrounds. The Del Mar Fairgrounds has canceled most events for the foreseeable future, including the annual San Diego County Fair, which usually takes place in June and July. Crossroads canceled its Del Mar show in March at the outset of the crisis and announced its mid-May show would be postponed to July 11-12. However, Gov. Gavin Newsom has said that large gatherings or events over the summer are “unlikely.”

Barrio residents ‘furious’ over Windsor Pointe By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A controversial development got the green light despite pleas from residents in the Barrio neighborhood. The Windsor Pointe project is a 50-unit development under the county’s “No Place Like Home” program and will house homeless veterans and people with severe mental illness, which has caused a backlash from residents. The units will be constructed at 3606-3618 and 3630 Harding Street and 965-967 Oak Avenue. Councilwoman Cori Schumacher abstained from the vote after stating her opposition to the project for using restricted funds dedicated to veterans housing during the May 5 City Council meeting. The city has committed $8.3 million, while the developer, Affirmed Housing, has secured all the funds it needs for the $33.1 million project. “The residents are furious,” said Denis Jensen, who is part of a neighborhood group pushing back against the development. “We laid out our concerns several times. It’s a total bait and switch.” Residents are steamed over the change in the funding of the program, which was initially allocated specifically for homeless and low-income veterans. Also, the program allows for addicts, SMI, and “seriously

TWO HOMES on Oak Avenue are scheduled to be part of a homeless housing project.

disturbed youth” without background checks. According to the program, the program must accept tenants regardless of sobriety, participation in services or history of incarceration. Jensen said the project cannot specifically target only Carlsbad residents as it would violate the Fair Housing Act.

Jensen said residents fear for the safety of children, many of whom attend nearby Jefferson Elementary School. However, Affirmed Housing has said it will conduct reviews and oversight of those residents. During the council’s April 21 meeting, Schumacher raised the issue of

veterans restrictions with the No Place Like Home program. “Back in 2017, the City Council explicitly restricted the funds to homeless veterans and lower-income veteran families,” she said. “At some point, those funds were used in an application for the No Place Like Home program, which explicitly,

clearly says you can’t have restrictions around veterans housing.” After the Feb. 25 City Council meeting, several residents said they were considering legal action against the city; although Jensen said his group, Carlsbad Against Windsor Pointe, is considering all options. “We’re going to fight this tooth and nail,” he added. In addition, Affirmed Housing will also demolish five residents and relocate those tenants at an estimated cost of $316,000 for moving. Overland, Pacific and Cutler was retained by Affirmed Housing and tasked with finding tenants comparable housing. The benefits include moving expenses, months of rental assistance or those tenants can rollover their rental assistance into a down payment to purchase a home, according to David de Cordova, the city’s housing services manager. Affirmed Housing attempted to secure additional funding through a number of other sources, federal, state and county, with only the county approving funds in the amount of $10.1 million, de Cordova said during the Jan. 28 meeting. The developer also has a pending application through the state for a 4% tax credit, which would total $14.2 million.

Moonlight Beach crowds ‘beyond any holiday weekend’ By Caitlin Steinberg

ENCINITAS — Reporting only one citation, law enforcement officials estimate Encinitas’ Moonlight Beach received an all-time high number of visitors last week with the reopening of Encinitas’ coastline to active beachgoers. “Attendance was beyond any holiday weekend,” Marine Safety Captain Larry Giles said. “It was the highest number of people I’ve seen in my 33 years of lifeguarding and it lasted from before sunrise past sunset.” Despite the large crowds, officials at the San Diego Sheriff’s Department reported residents were relatively compliant and willing to listen to deputies enforcing state-mandated social distancing policies as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “We looked at this as an educational first week,” Lieutenant John Boyle of the County Sheriff’s Department said, confirming the majority of contact between deputies and people was conversational, teaching residents how to implement social distancing practices on beaches and restricted access points. The only citation issued occurred near the Swami’s Beach access point, involving an individual seen using a closed staircase, discarding cig-

arettes on the beach, and sitting. Law enforcement officials reported the individual was given multiple chances to move and refused prior to being issued the citation. Officials acknowledged that the closure of all access points other than Moonlight Beach stands as one of the main challenges facing law enforcement during this first reopening phase. Prior to the reopening of Moonlight Beach to active recreation, the city of Encinitas wrapped coastline staircases and trail entrances in caution tape; that proved inefficient, however. Within 24 hours of reopening Moonlight, large chain link fencing was placed on all other beach access points to fully restrict access. “All of the [tape] was chronically getting torn down,” Giles said. “We, the lifeguards, were having to replace it constantly.” Law enforcement officials also recognized the effect that the red tide and bioluminescence was having on the current beach crowding situation, with Giles noting the crowds of beachgoers lasted beyond sunset and into each evening. “It’s a lot of people from out of the area, as far as Riverside and San Bernardino, coming down the coastline to see this red tide,” Giles said. Be-

cause of COVID, “there’s nothing for them to do in town so they’re all staying around the beach. It’s just as crowded during the day as it is at night.” In the last week, multiple Encinitas residents called in noise and crowding complaints during the evening hours, and though there were no citations issued, deputies addressed the large groups in question and dispersed the crowds. “I think it’s really up to the public to help self-police this,” Giles said, in reference to evening beachgoers and the

usage of restricted access points. “It’s the only way we don’t end up having to go through what Orange County just experienced, having the governor close beaches down.” In the coming weeks, Marine Safety officials will re-evaluate summer beach programming. Hosting nearly 10,000 participants each summer, surf and volleyball camps and Junior Lifeguard training, among other programs, will likely be adjusted in some manner, if not canceled outright. “A lot of these kids aren’t getting their spring

swim lessons like they normally would’ve and so they aren’t being properly prepared for these programs,” Giles said. Marine Safety officials will meet in the coming weeks to decide on how to safely move forward with such programming this summer. With temperatures rising, and as long as the red tide lasts, law enforcement officials and active beachgoers will be put to the test, as residents from all over Southern California likely seek to escape the heat during the day and catch a glimpse of the bioluminescence at night.

Grades, credit/no credit, or both? By Maureen ‘Mo’ Muir

Reopen California!


alifornians have answered the call and are doing a great job in adhering to, and complying with, the “stay-at-home”mandate in the wake of the unprecedented situation that we find ourselves in regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. As a scientist, I believe the initial reaction and response by, respectively, our federal and state governments to the novel coronavirus, was warranted, proper and measured. And frankly, we had no choice but to be proactive with the implementation of the healthcare guidelines in order to achieve mitigation and containment. However, I sincerely believe that we’ve now entered a new phase whereby we’ve successfully flattened the curve, even in many “Hot Zones” around the country and certainly in California. Some of our success includes, but is not limited to, reaching key benchmark rates, such as the dramatic decline in the rate of hospitalization and the ratio of infection rates to death counts. All this despite the fact that many have tested positive as our respective natural immunity is an incredible defensive mechanism. There are many other parameters that are showing demonstrably positive results and encouraging signs and trends. Consequently, and not because many people have reached a “tipping point” and are experiencing severe cases of “cabin fever” and “quarantine fatigue,” it’s time to reopen the economy and restore the American way of life — albeit in a gradual, measured and judicious manner.

We can do this safely, smartly and responsibly. We can, and should, reopen the economy in California in a phased-in approach by continuing to observe the guidelines that the White House Task Force has recommended while conducting business simultaneously. In other words, we can walk and chew gum at the same time. Several of our friends and relatives have lost their jobs and businesses. So, unless we reignite and restart the economy — certainly with prudent best practices — many small and medium-sized businesses (and potentially large corporations) will not survive unless we open the economy within weeks not months. Moreover, many counties, cities and municipalities are experiencing adverse impacts in delivering basic services for their constituents as their tax revenues have significantly declined during the shutdown. We need to reopen the economy immediately in a safe and responsible manner as the course, trajectory, velocity and direction that we’re on right now in California are unsustainable. Many experts have stated that more people will die from financial hardships and other medical, physiological, emotional and psychological conditions/ailments than from the pandemic (i.e., poverty, homelessness, suicides, depressions, obesity, heart attacks, diabetes, drugs, opioids, alcohol abuse, domestic abuse, mental health issues). It’s imperative that we go back to work, school, and other places of our choosing soon — notwithstanding what that “new normal” might look like

in the near-term and longrange. For example, in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks against our country, we did not stop traveling by airplanes. In fact, we took corrective actions and made security adjustments and continued to fly in record numbers. Additionally, we drive our cars (for many, on a daily basis) despite the fact that on average between 35,000 and 40,000 people die in any given year from accidents. Life is about balancing, mitigating and managing the ultimate risk/benefit and risk/reward ratios. America is about freedom, liberty, capitalism/free enterprise system, entrepreneurship, risk-taking, inventions, innovations, technological advancements, and to dream big and to grow, diversify, expand and to prosper. America is not about shutdowns, lockdowns, blackouts, or suppression and curtailment of our civil liberties and the “all-important” Bill of Rights. We are the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” and we are coming together and we will WIN again for humanity and our children and grandchildren — just like our parents and grandparents did during WWII! The State of California and County of San Diego, and all of its constituent cities, must end the lockdown safely and effectively (and in phases) starting the first week of May as there is no scientifically persuasive empirical evidence and no socio-economic basis or justification for an extended shutdown. John Daiza Carlsbad

On April 21, during the last San Dieguito Union High School District board meeting, the board had what some would consider a simple choice to make on a critical decision. What type of grading system should the school district utilize during this school term? a. Grades b. Credit/No Credit c. All of the Above After three hours of focused discussions, the board majority (3-1-1) gave the superintendent direction to move forward on Option B, “Credit/No Credit.” I strongly spoke out against the issuance of only C/NC this school term. Parents and students should be allowed the option to choose between C/NC or grades. As a parent, I would select grades, but allowing for Option C, “All of the Above,” seems to work for everyone. Even in college, students have a choice between grades or C/NC. The advantages and disadvantages are well known and the choice is up to each student. Offering only C/NC appears to be an academic risk that could impact our students’ academic futures.

We also need to continue to motivate our students to reach higher. Do you really believe C/NC is a better motivator than grades? This is an important decision for our college-bound students. As students pursue the colleges of their choice, grades may make a difference in the very competitive college acceptance process. Grades may also impact the ability for students to receive merit aid or scholarships. Our neighbor, the Carlsbad Unified School District, just voted this week for Option C. This will allow the students to choose a traditional letter grade for all courses (with GPA weight) or receive C/NC for all classes (with no impact on student GPAs). While many school districts are currently in discussion, all local private high schools (that I have spoken with) are giving grades as an option. According to the College Board AP Exam Webinar in April, 86% of AP teachers are still giving letter grades. Once again, the district students could be constrained when competing

with students across the nation for admission and scholarships. Letter grades will also give our junior students a chance to improve their GPAs this semester, since ACT and SAT exams will not be required for college admissions in 2020-2021. Our district is known statewide as a leader in academics. We raise our children to become future leaders and professionals within their chosen fields. Our children are educated here to conquer their challenges, reach their educational goals, and be successful in whatever occupations they choose. Our bar has never been simply “Credit or No Credit.” Offering students a choice is a win-win option for everyone, so why is the district struggling to reach this conclusion? During these unfortunate and challenging times, the question is easy and the answer is obvious. What’s best for the students? The answer is clear: “Option C. All of the Above” (grades or C/NC)! Mo Muir is the vice president and board member of the San Dieguito Union High School District.

‘Disastrous’ road work on 101 at Cardiff Beach I can’t imagine I am alone with anger about the disastrous road work recently completed on 101 at Cardiff Beach. Driving out of Solana Beach and from Encinitas down into Cardiff Beach use to be a beautiful seaside beach view. First, the sand dunes and awful fence was installed that blocked those views, roadside parking places, used for decades by families, were eliminated. In the last week, a further assault has been committed against the beauty and aesthetics of that beach.

All you see now is row after row of asphalt curbs with white strips with bright green 3 ft bollards stuck between each one. Hundreds of these, it’s all you see! More roadside parking has also been eliminated from an area were there is already not enough parking! The classic beach view setting and ease of access of the entire section has been destroyed by disastrous road work. How the Encinitas City Council approved such awful installations is beyond

me and others who have also been shocked by visual destruction. The road now looks like a crude parking lot at a failing strip mall. I can only imagine that the next brilliant idea will include parking meters and parking warning signs every 50 feet on each side of the road to complete the destruction of a once lovely stretch of seaside beach. What has been done needs to be removed. And those responsible, fired. Hugh Cree Solana Beach

Del Mar, Solana Beach open beaches By Lexy Brodt

SOLANA BEACH — In step with their neighbors to the north, Del Mar and Solana Beach opened up their beaches on Monday, May 4. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the beaches are strictly to be used for socially distanced walking, water activities (surfing, swimming, etc.) and physical exercise. Both beaches are prohibiting “anything stationary,” including gatherings, sitting, standing, sunbathing, but also any games or sports. Basically, don’t get too comfortable, and keep moving. As of Monday, essentially the entire North County shoreline is now open in this capacity — with Encinitas having opened last week, and Carlsbad opening Monday as well. This includes state beaches — Cardiff, San Elijo, South Carlsbad and Torrey Pines state beaches are all now open. The Torrey Pines reserve is still closed. State and city beach parking lots will remain closed — a move meant to discourage excessive crowding. Both Del Mar and Solana Beach’s coastlines had been closed for over a month, since shortly after the COVID-19 crisis began in mid-March. The closures were met with ire from the start, a response that has only intensified in recent

weeks as the weather gets warmer and the shelter-inplace order drags on. The county at large has been eyeing reopening for weeks, with local leaders planning for a coordinated strategy. But the process accelerated unexpectedly when the county announced that beachgoing restrictions would be lifted on April 27. Del Mar and Solana Beach both were apparently taken aback by this move. An e-blast issued by Solana Beach called the measure a “complete surprise” to the two cities, but they moved forward accordingly with a planned opening for May 4. The confusion escalated again last week, when word came out that Gov. Gavin Newsom was to announce the closure of all

Carlsbad opens rec areas By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — On May 4, the city of Carlsbad opened its beach, parks and trails. The City Council voted unanimously during its special meeting May 1 to open passive recreation areas that had been closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in line with other municipalities throughout the county. The beach opened Monday morning and parks and trails followed suit in the afternoon, per the recommendations from Kyle Lancaster, the director of parks and recreation, fire and police departments. The city’s direction does not include Batiquitos Lagoon, which will remain closed until the end of May, according to its website. The new hours for the beach are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., while parks and trails are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. “We will educate public with flyers and answer questions,” said Carlsbad Police Chief Neil Gallucci. “We will also be managing parking and traffic flow and enforce parking violations.” The city is conducting a two-stage approach, but the continuation of the openings will depend on compliance, Lancaster said. If residents do not

follow with the county’s health orders, such as wearing face masks when 6 feet or closer from others, or if there is a spike in COVID-19 cases, the beach, parks and trails will be closed. All social distancing guidelines remain in place, per the county’s health order. Fire Chief Mike Calderwood said the county has reported just four new coronavirus cases in Carlsbad over the past several weeks. As for the beach, it can only be used for walking, running, hiking, equestrian use or bicycle riding (where allowed), according to the staff report. Additionally, swimming, body surfing, boogie boarding, surfing, kite surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving are allowed. Residents or visitors cannot congregate, lie down, stand still or participate in active sport activities such as yoga or volleyball. “Lifeguards will be at all three lifeguard towers including Army-Navy Academy tower,” said Kevin Lynds, a battalion chief with the Carlsbad Fire Department. “These plans can change with any updates to the public health order from the county.”

beaches and state parks in California. But as it turns out, this only applied to Orange County — where visitors flooded local beaches the last weekend of April. Therefore, the county’s two smallest cities opted to stick to a Monday opening. Fletcher Cove Park and Powerhouse Park both remain closed, but the parks still provide access to the beach. The stairway access points in Solana Beach will only allow one-way passage — residents will be able to enter the beach at Seascape and exit at the Del Mar Shores staircase. Both cities will increase the number of lifeguards on duty to keep up with enforcement and educational needs — which will be supplemented by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. At a May 1 special meeting in Del Mar, North Coastal Sheriff Captain Herbert Taft said the station is expecting large crowds. “The reality of it is people are excited to be back, and be able to walk to the beaches,” said Taft. He added that most people are “very compliant,” and citations will be used as a last resort. Del Mar City Manager CJ Johnson said that so far, beach openings in other areas of the county have been “going okay” — such as in the city of San Diego. However, she said there have been some bigger crowds in Encinitas due to the red tide and resulting bioluminescent waves. Councilmembers in Del Mar unanimously supported the opening of beaches on Monday, in order to get in line with the state and its neighboring cities. Councilwoman Terry Gaasterland said she thinks opening the beach is ultimately a safer option, giving residents more areas to be able to exercise rather than scrunching together on narrow Del Mar roads. “Stratford Court itself has become a highway,” she said, referring to a road that runs through Olde Del Mar, parallel to the beach. “Opening up the beaches will relieve that.” The council and staff have also made it clear that the opening is conditional on how well residents and visitors are able to maintain social distancing standards. “If the word is it isn’t

working, we’re going to close it again,” said Councilman Dwight Worden. Dozens of locals have written red dots to the city, pleading with officials to open the beaches for exercise purposes. The entire county has seen strong pushback from residents due to beach closures, with the recent protest in Encinitas calling out local officials for keeping the beaches closed. According to Solana Beach Mayor Jewel Edson, residents were disappointed with the closing in March, but have been understanding, “for the most part.” “We hope this time around people will comply with county orders so that our beaches may remain open for all to enjoy,” she said.


plicants who have applied for federal assistance are eligible but may not also apply to the city for a loan to cover costs for which they have already received federal assistance. “We are definitely still in a time of economic uncertainty and will be for some time,” Graham said. “There’s definitely a benefit for a public loan program.” The recommendations came from the city’s ad hoc subcommittee, which was formed on April 7, of Mayor Matt Hall and Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel. Carlsbad joins several other municipalities across the county in offering loans to small businesses such as San Marcos, Oceanside, Poway and San Diego County, to name a few. “We gave a lot of thought on this,” Hall said. “We spent a lot of time listening to the community … to tailor this to what, I think, the business community needs.” Carlsbad approved two proposals, which include micro and economic recovery loans. The eligibility requirements include businesses with gross revenue of $2 million or less, have 15 or fewer employees for loan amounts between $5,000 and $10,000. The first payment could be deferred for up to 90 days and with 0% interest if paid back within 6 months, 1% in 12 months and 2% in 18 months. Those loans

will be between $5,000 and $10,000. According to Graham, there are about 2,700 non-residential businesses with a gross revenue of $2 million or less. With the micro loan program, the city estimates 150 to 300 loans and the council approved allocating $1.5 million for micro loans. As for the recovery program, those requirements include businesses with gross revenue of $3 million and with 50 or fewer employees. The loan amounts will be between $10,000 to $25,000. Interest rates, meanwhile, will be 2% if paid back within 12 months and 3% within 30 months. Graham said about 3,600 non-essential businesses fall under the recovery requirements and the city estimates between 80 to 200 loans. Additionally, the city will contract the loan program to a third party, which is expected to be selected by May 15.

Council aides face cuts in new budget By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The City Council is looking into consolidating its council aide positions into one staff position to serve all council members as a means to save money before approving the city’s final budget for the following year. The proposed budget for fiscal year 2020-2021 will be brought before the council for final approval on June 3. Councilmember Chris Rodriguez suggested consolidating the council aides to one staff position or possibly reducing hours at the council’s April 27 budget workshop. He considers having a council aide for each member a luxury, and said by his math the city could save “close to half a million dollars in council aide salaries and benefits” if the positions were cut. “I have time to make it work,” Rodriguez said, regarding cutting council aide positions. Deputy Mayor Jack Feller noted he won’t have an aide after the first of the year and agreed that having one for everyone “seems like a luxury.” Councilmember Esther Sanchez was the only member completely opposed to reducing the number of council aides. “I, for one, need my aide,” Sanchez said. Before bringing back the proposed budget for

I, for one, need my aide.” Esther Sanchez Oceanside councilwoman

the council’s final approval, staff will conduct a cost analysis of potential savings to the General Fund if council aides were consolidated into one staff position, in addition to reviewing the city’s current vacant positions and service impacts that have been caused by those vacancies. City staff has already revised the proposed budget from what was presented to the council back in January. City Manager Deanna Lorson said last-minute impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic had required a “complete reworking” of the proposed budget in the last 30 days. The revised budget projects the city receiving about $158.27 million in revenue, reduction of more than $8.5 million from what was projected in January. Expenditures also dropped by about $8 million to $157.66 million, leaving only about a $610,000 surplus for the city, as opposed to the $1.31 million surplus projected in January. Staff used fiscal year 2019-2020 as a base with a 10% reduction in main-

tenance and operations to determine next year’s budget. According to Lorson, the General Fund budget does not contain any money used from Measure X, maintains service levels, meets all reserve obligations and continues cost containment efforts. “Staff feels like this is a prudent budget given the current situation,” Lorson said. Some of those cost containment efforts include freezes on recruitment and replacement hiring and employee travel for conferences or training, a reduction of maintenance and operations budgets by 10% and contracting services in lieu of permanent positions. “We have compared our budget to other cities,” Lorson said. “The cuts that we’re seeing are generally in line with the kinds of cuts that other cities are receiving.”

Carlsbad fosters collaboration in COVID fight By Catherine Allen

CARLSBAD — The world’s slow initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic revealed a much-needed investment in scientific research to minimize the effects of outbreaks. Now, organizations are collaborating locally and globally to make up for lost time. Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Director of Research and Development, Dr. Uma Lakshmipathy, said stronger public-private partnerships will maximize the resources needed to fight the virus and other diseases. “The world was largely unprepared, and it took a while for everyone to understand the magnitude or seriousness of this,” Lakshmipathy said. “But hindsight is 20/20. This mandates greater investment in scientific research to enable scientists across the globe to do their due diligence and develop new vaccines and front line, novel therapies.” Thermo Fisher now dedicates several locations across the country to critical projects, such as the production of their FDA-approved COVID-19 tests. In Carlsbad, employees focus on manufacturing the tests, which are later distributed to qualified testing centers. As a hub for biotech companies, one of the City of Carlsbad’s responses to COVID-19 has been to serve as a bridge between local researchers and available government resources. The city has been in contact with 130 biotech companies in Carlsbad since March, according to Councilwoman Cori Schumacher. “With a public health event of this size, the local government needs to collaborate with our biotech companies by connecting them to state and national resources,” Schumacher said. “A re-

gional, bottom-up approach would be incredibly helpful in mobilizing resources for local biotech companies and ensuring organized, expedited delivery of essential products.” Carlsbad aims to provide communities and first responders with a growing number of products, as scientists continue developing tests and treatments. As Thermo Fisher becomes a leader in testing, many of its employees’ jobs are deemed essential to carrying out the collaborative effort of fighting the virus. Staff scientist Dr. Grace Zhang Li is one such employee. “Each scientist has technical expertise, and we each play a part,” Li said. “This is a new virus, so the scientific field is understanding more every day. It’s really important for our business and for our continued service to this whole community.” For scientists, combat-

ing the pandemic behind the scenes is a gradual, longterm process — typically requiring years of rigorous clinical trials before a new drug is released. According to Lakshmipathy, there’s still no cure for COVID-19, but the number of treatments and vaccines currently being tested continues to grow. “This is an awakening that truth matters, collaboration is important and there should be adequate funding for scientific advancements to be made,” she said. “Events like this reiterates these fundamental facts and restores our reliance on factbased science. It’s not a frivolous luxury — it’s a necessity if you want to have better human life.”

Vista couple create free food pantry By Hoa Quach

VISTA — A Vista couple is hoping to “nourish the souls and bodies” of neighbors with the help of a free food, toy and book pantry in their driveway. Mark and Jannah Loigman said the idea for their pantry began when the county implemented the stay-at-home order, forcing the closure of non-essential businesses such as the local libraries. “This began with Mark being an avid reader and having many books to share,” Jannah said. “Once the library system shut down, and remembering the little lending libraries we have seen in neighborhoods, this seemed like a great match.” The couple asked neighbors for a donation of cupboards, which were then repurposed to build the pantry. From there, the Loigmans’ idea grew to include a food bank and a variety of toys to keep children busy as they stay home from schools and playgrounds. “The book library developed into a larger food bank as the needs of the community and our neighbors became apparent,” said Jannah, who has lived in Vista since 2016. “This has further evolved with the donations from our community to include lots of kids and adult books, movies, games and toys as well as many other items for people in need.” So far, dozens of families have stopped by the home at the corner of Collyn Street and Stewart Drive to take advantage of the couple’s generous offering. Donations are also accepted to keep the pantry filled with necessary items.

Jannah said an 85-yearold man stopped by the pantry and was excited to receive a can of his favorite “LeSuer Peas.” The man, alongside his daughter, now visit the pantry every week. “Another woman and her children made the trip to the pantry and the kids were very excited to find books, toys and games to occupy themselves and feed their spirits,” Jannah said. “We overheard a child say to his mother ‘Oh mommy, this is like the outings we used to have before the sickness.’” The couple has also been moved by stories from their own circle of friends and relatives. “We have been aware of and touched by our family, neighbors and friends

suffering, job loss, financial challenges and overall anxiety,” Jannah said. “Personally, we are in the higher risk category and have experienced the fear of grocery shopping and being in public spaces.” Giving back has also helped the couple who has been married for three decades, Mark said. “I see our children without employment and our uncertain futures and want to reach out in the way we can to make a difference,” Mark said. “It is hard to know what the truth is and who to believe, so to focus on helping others and giving back keeps us busy and distracted from our own fears, concerns and worries during these challenging and difficult times.

We have created a safe and calm environment for folks to give and receive gifts.” Although Mark said the idea began with his love for books, it’s his wife who has maintained and organized the pantry for the community. He said she has been able to sort through donations, organize the items and fulfill any requests from neighbors. Jannah said they’ll continue to host the pantry for as long as it is needed. “We intend to nourish both the soul and the bodies of those neighbors in need,” Jannah said. “A further benefit is to foster a spirit of community for those that can donate as well as those that receive. This is a small offering that has a daily impact on lives and hearts.”

The art world adapts to COVID-19


ue to the Covid-19 crisis, the art world is changing in ways we could have never expected. Artists and galleries do their best to use technology and the internet to keep our art and our artists’ voices out there as our systems of exhibitions, art fairs, auctions, and museum shows disappear before our eyes. Those who can have quickly launched exhibitions online with viewing room platforms, giving visibility to exhibitions that are now closed, as well as initiating postings on social media that we hope will resonate in this newly isolated art world. The very commerce that keeps us alive has lost it significance in the world in which we now find ourselves. In the first few weeks, talking to collectors about buying work went from hopeful to non-existent. As artists and gallery directors struggle with this CROPwe must realize that reality, .93is always in the business art of.93 the future.

How will all this change the way we in the art world progress in the future? We can only hope for the best. Many lives have been touched by this plague. So many lives lost and many more scarred with sorrow. Our redemption can only be to give our recovery serious meaning. Personally, I feel blessed to be able to provide my help in the art community by the few words I am allowed to publish each month in my CA ART NEWS column.

Leucadia mural brings positive vibes By Jordan P. Ingram

ENCINITAS — Nearly nine months after a commercial building fire wrought devastation in Leucadia, a group of artists hopes artwork will bring some positive vibes back to the community. Local artists Jessica Fuller, Michael Amorillo, John Hester, Josh Rehkopf, Christian Slocum and Karissa Bordin all contributed murals to beautify a concrete partition separating La Especial Norte restaurant and a small tract of land on the corner of North Coast Highway 101 and Daphne Street. The empty plot was the location of several wellknown Leucadia businesses, including Mozy Cafe, Shatto & Sons T-Shirts, Cali Life Art Gallery and Peace Pies, before they were destroyed in a two-alarm fire last September. Jim Shatto, owner of both Shatto & Sons and the vacant lot, said the mural project is a positive story “in a sea of negativity,” referring to the constant stream of troubling news related to the coronavirus pandemic. “This is a work of love and it’s awesome what they are doing,” Shatto said. “These are talented people. This is about these guys who volunteered to do this project for free — just for the community.” And since Shatto plans to rebuild his storefront in the same location, the mural will only be visible for a limited time. The idea for the mural project was brought to Shatto from a longtime family friend and Leucadia

Devin Seguin, a bartender at Captain Keno’s restaurant, said he was inspired to share a message of hope for locals stuck in social isolation after weeks of mandatory stay-at-home orders. “I would drive by here on my way to work and I saw this blank wall and thought it was the perfect place for some kind of inspirational message,” Seguin said.

Nevertheless, having a bit more free time at home these days, the yard and its contents have captured my attention. I suddenly observed an explosion of weeds and a serious trend toward slovenly. I want to blame it all on our heavy rains this winter, but in truth, they just emphasized what is always there come spring. Uncontrolled grasses had popped up in the side yard I see from my kitchen window. For my daughter’s wedding reception four years ago, I had planted a lovely groundcover and some ferns there. The wild grass kept taking over. But as the skies emptied above us, it was the ferns that did a happy dance. They went forth and multiplied gloriously, taking over the balance of the side yard plot, and they are magnificent. But as they grew, so did some of the hardier plots of grass. The spiky grass soon peeped out among the

all in this together,” across the length of the entire wall. Feeling a sense of loss from the fire's destruction, combined with long periods of isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic has been difficult, Seguin said. After sharing his thoughts with the property owner, Shatto, the idea

was formulated to create a series of murals by local artists. Shatto then posted a notice on Nextdoor, an online neighborhood bulletin, seeking local artists interested in volunteering for a mural project. Seguin said the community’s response was immediate and overwhelming. “It’s a reminder that Leucadia is full of artists

and creative people, and this is the perfect thing to represent that,” Seguin said. Seguin’s wife, Karissa Bordin, a professional artist and owner of Paint and Party, along with assistance from her identical twin sister, Kayt Bordin, also contributed to the mural project with a portrait of Grandview, a popular surfing spot in Leucadia.

Michael Amorillo, a graffiti artist and Leucadia resident of 20 years, used spray paint to create a giant whale swimming above kelp fronds. Originally from New York City, Amorillo has artwork featured across San Diego County, including ocean-themed murals at Leucadia’s Priority Public House gastropub and Harrah’s Rincon in Valley

Center. Other artists’ contributions to the mural project are as follows: Jessica Fuller painted large-leafed philodendrons, a plant which can be seen growing around Encinitas; John Hester, a local legend known for his iconic Stonesteps Surfing Contest posters and T-shirts, painted the word “Soul” with sunbeams over breaking ocean waves; Josh

lame it on the weather. Whether you choose to grow Sungold, Early Girl, Celebrity or Black Russian tomatoes has to do with where you live in North County. “I have grown some of the best Early Girl tomatoes ever in Vista, since we are 10 degrees warmer and have more sun than my customers who live on the coast,” said Steven Froess of Anderson’s La Costa Nursery in Encinitas. “But many customers on the coast chose some of the smaller varieties that don’t take as long to mature in partially cloudy conditions.” Froess is a part of the staff of the large nursery owned by Mariah and Marc Smith, who purchased it a number of years ago and offer a full selection of indoor and outdoor plants and trees, fountains, horticulture workshops and garden design services. “We emphasize soil preparation to all of our customers,” advised Froess. “A mix of garden soil such as Kellogg’s Garden Bloom mixed with worm castings and composted chicken manure will give a great start to your tomato crop. By fertilizing first, our gardeners

don’t have to worry about fertilizing again for 4-6 weeks.” I called upon one of my fellow horticulturists, Fred Palladino of Tucson, Arizona, to help explain growing conditions. “The climate is difficult for growing large Beefsteak tomatoes in the San Diego area,” Palladino said. “You can have perfect soil and water conditions, but without a full eight hours of summer and high temperatures for at least eight weeks, it is difficult to grow the largest varieties. “Smaller varieties such as Cherry, Roma, Heirloom and Grape tomatoes tend to give a higher yield in the San Diego climate. New va-

rieties such as Russian Krim and Black Russian were developed in colder, partially cloudy areas similar to North County.” Anderson’s La Costa Nursery presently has over 15 varieties of tomatoes to chose from, including Purple Rose, Cherokee Purple, Russian Krim, Brandywine and Sungold — all of which were favorites with the staff. Owner Mariah Smith reminds all of the customers to purchase tomato cages for indeterminate types. These tomatoes grow larger than determinate types, such as Patio or Roma varieties, which stay compact and tend to fruit all at one time. Look for the determinate label if you want to-

matoes that will produce throughout the season. As for pruning, Froess said, “When clipping the suckers from the plants, make sure to wait until two leaves develop and pinch above them. This practice provides better foliage cover to protect the fruit and stems from damage.” When planning a new vegetable garden, it is important to assess your site before making an investment in supplies and plant material. Be sure to take a walk in your yard or patio, and take pictures at different times of the day to determine which area will provide you with the most sun. Keep an eye on the

weather, including cloud and sun conditions as well as temperature predictions. Remember that temperature and weather conditions will vary throughout the county whether it is on the coast or inland. Mariah Smith noted, “In May and June we have lots of cloudy days, and then the warmer weather arrives in July and August. In Encinitas, we also have morning fog, which can bring in high humidity to the plants.” If plants become too wet, blossom-end rot or powdery mildew can occur and plants might need to be treated with a fungicide. Adding calcium to the soil can also help strengthen the growth of the plants. Check with San Diego Master Gardener website at for further information regarding plant varieties and disease problems. Anderson’s La Costa Nursery is located at 400 La Costa Avenue, Encinitas. Marc and Mariah Smith and their staff can be reached at 760-753-3153 or I look forward to hearing about your favorite tomato varieties and I would be happy to answer your gardening questions.

Sewing groups offer guides for making masks REGION — As of May 1, San Diego County residents are required to wear masks in public, and volunteer organizations that have been fashioning and donating masks to medical facilities in need of personal protective equipment are also providing residents with the means to create their own. Sewing enthusiasts who took their interests online to share designs or tips with others have found a new outlet for their craft in the pandemic era: producing donations of masks for health care professionals and other essential workers. Michelle Harvey, who heads the San Diego Face Mask Sewing Group on Facebook, said she’s fairly new to sewing, but started making masks when her friend, an ICU nurse at Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, said the hospital would begin taking donations. Another group, Make-A-Mask San Diego, features pdf files of mask-making tutorials and downloadable patterns. In preparation for “the massive demand” that is expected to result from the new rule, the group has created a resource page at http://tiny. cc/sandiegomasks. The county’s face-covering requirements are in effect indefinitely. — City News Service

I spent a week surgically locating and ripping out each stalk of interloper grass. Hunkering down to ground level annoyed my back, but it was nothing to the absolute glee of besting that grass. Just looking at my grass-free ferns makes me grin. And with the removal of grass patches, my cute little groundcover saw daylight again. It was a sweet victory. Now I am counting on the ferns and the groundcover to get busy and grow, ideally blocking any sun, and sucking up all the nutrients that might encourage grass regrowth.

he best thing about the COVID Cafe is the location. No more than 10 steps from my bed, and I’m already placing an order for a coffee, and a side of toast with peanut butter. I’ve heard that this is the hottest new cafe in the neighborhood. There is no one at the counter. This must be one of those hip self-service coffee shops I’ve heard so much about. With a little luck I find a generic looking brown bag of whole beans in a cabinet. The word “Sumatra?” is handwritten on the outside. I’m guessing they are from an underground, fair trade Indonesian coffee farm where the beans range freely in the fields, and after harvest make their way stateside in the hold of a small ship reminiscent of Captain Zissou’s Belafonte. I eyeball what is probably, roughly the exact right number of coffee beans for the large French press the proprietors of this establishment left in the sink. All of their fancy professional grinders must be in the shop, because all I can find is a Magic Bullet personal blender. I’ll note that on the comment card. I press down on the blender cup filled with beans. It sounds like I acci-

approve the use of fidelity simulation, scenarios, and other innovative educational environments as substitutes for the clinical and field internship training for paramedic and EMT training programs. This will allow the two Palomar programs to complete their training-in-progress this spring and summer.

Ryan Woldt dentally dropped a fork in the garbage disposal, but the sounds of coffee being made is just one of things that flesh out the ambience of this hipster cafe. The beans look fairly well chopped up in a variety of sizes, which is probably right. I can’t believe they don’t charge extra for this immersive experience. Shop policy must be to leave grounds in the press between uses. Probably to maintain a consistent humidity in the press. I rinse out the beans releasing day-old coffee aroma and dump the dry grounds into the base. I look for a hot water dispenser, but this cafe is so passionate about handcrafting each cup of joe that I can’t find one. In the spirit of the craft, I heat up some water in a small pot that smells, slightly, of marinara. I didn’t realize this was an Italian cafe!

Leucadia Farmers Market is back! lick the plate david boylan


here is a song most of you are probably familiar with called “Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell with a line, “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone,” that has resonated for me on more than one occasion but even more so recently with the Leucadia Farmers Market being closed due to the lockdown. I will wax poetic on all that I’ve missed shortly after I share the fabulous news that the Leucadia Farmers Market is back in business in a limited capacity, with plans to expand over the next 30-60 days. Ron LaChance, who runs the market, told me it will offer produce, meat and fish through May 10, then add packaged foods and cooked foods after that. It would be best to check the market’s Facebook page for updates as changing conditions could affect the schedule. Also, until further notice, be prepared to wear a face covering and possibly



vors of some of the bigger chunks of coffee bean. I only splash a little, but it is hot enough to merit running some cold water over my wrist. Thankfully the cafe is conveniently located near a kitchen sink. While I wait for the freshly steeped coffee, I find some bread to shove into the small slot of a toaster. They must normally trim the slices into perfect squares here. I wonder if Killer Dave home-makes each loaf or has a team of

stand in a short line to get into the market to keep in compliance with distancing standards. Visit for all the safety precautions put in place to allow the market to reopen. They are doing it right and all I can tell you is that it is a joy to be walking on the playground of Paul Ecke Central Elementary School once again on a Sunday morning. Another fun development is the addition of “Drive Through Pick Up Tuesdays” at the Leucadia Farmers Market. Search “Drive Through Veggies” on Facebook to get more information on that program as Ron has locations all over San Diego. So back to my song reference of not knowing what you have till it’s gone … because that hit me very hard during the weeks the market was closed. I found myself instinctively loading up my bike and actually getting halfway there on a Sunday morning before realizing there were no cars parked along Hermes Street and, well, making the most of it with bike ride along the coast. Besides providing me all kinds of great content for Lick the Plate stories over

the years, there was something just so good about a Sunday stroll through the market, even if my shopping list was short. Going way back, some of my fondest memories were making a Sunday morning experience of it with my son Quinn, a New York Times Sunday paper, and Cuban sandwiches from Annel & Drew’s Kitchen. Then the proud dad moments I had a few years later seeing Quinn get up way early to prep and work a long day in that same booth. It has also been a treat to write about startup vendors at the market who took their offerings to a higher level and wider audience and are killing it now. Prager Brothers Artisan Breads comes to mind. Some other favorites have been Basiltops Pesto — now American Pesto; the wood-fired pizza from a former fireman at Bottaro Pizza; the super green drink from the Morning Star Ranch folks; and boatloads of fabulous organic produce from a plethora of vendors. Besides the food, clothing, great live music and healing elixirs of the moment, the Leucadia Farmers Market provides a sense of community and top-notch people watching. In 13 years, I don’t

think I’ve walked the market once without running into an acquaintance of some sort. From former track athletes I coached to neighbors, co-workers, folks I see out surfing, it runs the gamut. It’s a great feeling to have a place that brings people together over food, music, and a fabulous location and it was that combination that I missed the most. Going back there with my son Quinn when he visits now brings back a flood of great memories. I can’t write about my farmers market memories without mentioning the main man, the guy who brought it together 13 years ago — market manager Ron LaChance. Ron has connected me with a lot of vendors with great stories who I’ve been able to share with Coast News readers through Lick the Plate. He also has Michigan connections, so depending on the season, our conversations range from University of Michigan football to the Detroit Lions and Tigers. With that, please enjoy the farmers market again but be patient if there is a line and respect the rules they have in place to make this amazing local experience we all share possible.

artisans he works with. I’m a little disappointed there isn’t some freshly smashed avocado to pair with my toast, but peanut butter will do just fine. This seems like an eco-friendly place, so they probably are just reusing the Costco jar to store their homemade peanut butter. Shoot, how long has it been since that coffee’s been steeping? No matter. I’m sure it is fine. I take the French press and toast into the dining area where I find a worn orange velour chaise lounge in the corner next to coffee table made out of an old erector set.

Honestly, I may not be cool enough to be in this establishment. I’m glad no one has pointed at my gray sweatpants yet, or even noticed that I’m not wearing shoes. I forgot to grab a mug from the coffee bar, but someone conveniently left one sitting here that looks pretty clean. I’m sure this is the kind of place that has all different kinds of mugs. This one has a camper van on it. So cool. Steam swirls up as I pour the coffee. There is no background music here so I can really focus on the ambient sounds.

Is that a truck backing up? I definitely hear a leaf blower. A burnt charcoal smell wafts into my nostrils as I lift the mug to my lips. I breathe in deeply. The essence of the coffee fills my whole being, and I take a sip. What are those delicate flavors? Is that chocolate? Or dirt? Perhaps a hint of marinara? I better snap a photo for my Instagram. Is that the manager over there? She’s wearing pajama pants too! I better introduce myself. I have a feeling I’ll be spending a lot of time here.

had never heard the term “bug out bag” until two years ago when a neighbor showed me his kit for “bugging out.” He had a great deal of military experience and I half listened as he informed me of the items needed in case you had to leave your home in a hurry. While I was attentive to his words, I quickly placed them toward the end of what I call my “someday file,” that mental storehouse with lists that include learning to speak Bulgarian and playing the bass fiddle. Then came an infectious disease and it occurred to me that we might be forced to flee our home one day. It was only then that I located the cat carrier, dusted it off and began building a (gosh, it sounds romantic) bug out bag for two. Okay three since the cat is surely coming along. The first thought is: Where does a Southern California surfer bug out? Baja comes to mind along with “duh.” But visions of a half-million hungry surfers descending on the desert to ride waves, catch every fish in sight and foul that region before in search of a new location dissuade me. Scratch Baja — I would rather battle it out on home turf. The rich and not-so-imaginative always point to New Zealand in times like these. I lived there in the early ’70s and while I had a very nice time during summer months, the winters were brutal, as evidenced by some local surfers caking their faces with Vaseline against the wind. That and the place has gone from being incredibly inexpensive (I worked as a barman and Steinlager beer was 7 cents a glass, and our rent for a three bedroom beach house was $18 a week.) Those are not typos, living there was nearly free at the time. Anyway, New Zealand has little appeal any longer since every mother’s yuppie son would arrive there buying up large chunks of land so they can turn and burn the world as many of them VOLUNTEER

have in their homelands. Besides, strict immigration laws would probably keep you out. Going north, if you could get north in a panic, has the same problems as going south does. After long discussions with my wife and daughter, it was decided that should the worst happen, we would hold the fort where the fort now stands, in funky and wonderful Oceanside.

Where does a Southern California surfer bug out? There is decent surf and fishing within what, for the well conditioned, is walking distance and not every square inch of land has been plowed under to accommodate shoe circuses and goochie shops offering $2 squares of chocolate washed down with $5 coffee. There is still a bit of backcountry and for those who can tolerate them, ample survival foods: Mainly dandelions and crawdads are on the menu. I have a good start on a bug out bag, something that includes an easily stored surf mat along with a drop line, gaffer tape, flint and a hand-cranked radio. While I am in no way diminishing people’s suffering, I am glad to see fewer cars on the road, fewer future landfill items being purchased and fewer hyperactive ads singing about the time of your life once you are released from a packed ocean liner. I sleep better having a bug out bag and even better when I realize I will probably never need to use it.

Photographer celebrates life of water travel Where there is water, there are boats, and paging through “Cruising the World: From Gondolas to Megaships,” readers can see just how many different vessels row, sail, paddle and steam up the rivers, lakes, canals and oceans of our world. In his book, photographer Dennis Cox gives us 535 striking color photos of boats and ships from 77 countries on seven continents in this large-format, 208-page, hardcover volume (available May 10). Award-winning travel writer and lifelong friend Clark Norton provides the text, which covers the history and high points of the cruising industry, life at various global ports and additional information on Cox’s instructive and often remarkable images. Inspiration for the book grew from the need to find a home for Cox’s collection of photos amassed over 40 years. (Cox has been to China 50 times alone.) “I had accumulated a lot of photos of cruises and didn’t know what to do with them,” the award-winning photographer explained in a call from his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Eventually, he included 37 kinds of vessels in the book — from high-tech megaships (Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas carries up to 6,680 passengers and about 2,200 crew) to oar-powered sampans, small ancient boats in Asia used for fishing, transportation

hit the road e’louise ondash and sometimes living quarters. The timing of producing and releasing the book “is interesting because I finished just in time before the coronavirus hit,” Cox explained. “I couldn’t go an any more cruises (now). The lines are closed down. Three of the liners that were stuck at sea, I’d been on.” Of these “heavyweights of the seas,” as he calls them, Cox writes in his blog, “Cruise ships are no longer the staid vessels with the same standard activities and venues industry wide. Over the past decade, a transformation has taken place. They have been converted from floating hotels — usually with a pool and shuffleboard — into dynamic floating cities competing



to provide innovations that either provide something for everyone or attract, or solidify their hold on, a particular customer niche.” That said, with this pandemic, the cruise industry is facing perilous times, but Cox has no doubt that it will return as strong as ever. “Lots of people are anxious to get back on cruise ships,” he said. He follows several cruise-fan Facebook groups and some of these people “have three or four cruises booked.” COVID-19 has given Cox an excuse to slow a bit — at least for a while. “I’ve been doing three or four cruises a year for last three or four years,” he said. “I’ve been looking for (boats) that I didn’t have and geographic coverage that I didn’t have. I’m enjoying the rest now but will probably get stir-crazy. I know I don’t want to be home for the next 18 months.” Want to share your travels? Email

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A legal matter you hoped could finally be settled could be a pesky problem for a while, until all the parties agree to stop disagreeing with each other. Be patient.

1. GEOGRAPHY: Which is the only country to have three capital cities? 2. MOVIES: What year did the first Academy Awards ceremony take place? 3. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: In police radio code, what does 10-31 mean? 4. U.S. STATES: What state would a Hoosier come from? 5. LANGUAGE: What does the Latin phrase “carpe noctem” mean? 6.

MEDICAL: What is a more common name for varicella? 10. AWARDS: Which group has received the most Nobel Peace prizes?

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A seemingly stalled romantic situation could benefit from your reassurance that you want this relationship to work. And if you do, use a tad more of that irresistible Aries charm. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re attracted to a situation that appeals to your Bovine intellect. And that’s good. But don’t neglect your passionate side when romance comes calling later in the week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) That career-change opportunity that didn’t work out when you first considered it could come up again. But this time, remember that you have more to offer and should act accordingly. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) There could be some tensions in relationships — domestic or workaday. But a calm approach that doesn’t raise the anger levels and a frank discussion soon will resolve the problem. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s a good idea to begin preparing for that career change you’ve been thinking about for a while. Start to sharpen your skills and expand your background to be ready when it calls. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Bless that Virgo skepticism that has kept you from falling into traps others seem to rush into. But you might want to give a new possibility the benefit of the doubt, at least on a trial basis.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Someone might use deception to try to push you into making a decision you’re not fully comfortable with. But those keen Scorpio senses should keep you alert to any such attempt. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Romance dominates this week when Cupid spears the Archer, for a change. Positive things also are happening in the workplace. Expect important news to arrive by the week’s end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Anyone trying to bully the Sea Goat — whether it involves a personal or a professional matter — will learn a painful lesson. Others also will benefit from the Goat’s strong example. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Congratulations. With things going the way they are, you should be able to spare some time and take a break from your hectic schedule for some well-earned fun and games. PISCES (February 19 to March 21) Your sharp Piscean intuition should be able to uncover the true agendas of those who might be trying to catch the Fish in one of their schemes.
