Levin holds 49th, Issa with slim lead in 50th By City News Service

REGION — San Diego-area congressional representatives were celebrating reelection wins Nov. 4, while the race for the 50th District was neck-and-neck between former Rep. Darrell Issa and Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar. Issa, a Republican, was holding a narrow lead early Wednesday, with 52.2% of the vote, LEVIN compared to Campa-Najja r ’s 47.8%. The 50th District covers East and North San Diego County, ISSA along with portions of Riverside County. It was unclear how many provisional and questioned ballots and late-arriving mail ballots remain to be counted in the district. Issa was leading by roughly 12,000 votes. The candidates are seeking to claim the seat vacated by former Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, who resigned amid a corruption scandal and criminal charges of unlawful spending of campaign funds. Issa has questioned Campa-Najjar’s political convictions, saying his opponent has attempted to rebrand himself as a moderate in order to appeal to Republican voters, while Campa-Najjar says he has spent TURN TO CONGRESS ON A7

Encinitas approves Olivenhain sewer, Vulcan housing projects By Caitlin Steinberg

ENCINITAS — As the winter rainy season approaches, the Encinitas City Council unanimously voted to greenlight Phase 1 of the Olivenhain Trunk Sewer Project on Oct. 28, repairing and replacing decades-old manholes and sewer lines susceptible to overflow. The council also approved a 12-unit development on Vulcan Street, modified to meet state regulations. The total cost of the Olivenhain Trunk Sewer Project’s Phase 1 construction, management and inspection is $3,343,197 and

will replace 43-year-old infrastructure running along Escondido Creek and San Elijo Lagoon from Lone Jack Road to the Olivenhain Sewer Pump States at the Manchester Avenue and I-5 Interchange. During public comments, Susan Turney, candidate for City Council District 2, questioned why the council had not acted sooner, why construction was broken into phases, as well as the total cost to replace all manholes. According to city staff, improvements have been delayed due to an extended Environmental Impact Report

process as well as separated into two phases by easement negotiations with private landowners. After both phases are complete, the city estimates the cost to be $7.5 million dollars. Additionally, the city clarified that the existing structure is not currently leaking raw sewage into San Elijo Lagoon, however, it is in danger of doing so during future major rain events. In dry season conditions, the current pipes can handle the volume of water, however, according to the city, “during a heavy storm event when the capacity of

Escondido OKs plan to increase development fees By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido City Council met on Wednesday, Oct. 28 and approved a 2% fee increase for development impact fees to keep up with inflation. The increase will raise the development fees charged for new single-family homes, multi-family homes and commercial and industrial buildings. Developers of new residential and nonresidential projects must pay development impact fees to offset the costs of public facilities that are necessary to serve the new development. These facilities include parks, fire and medical emergencies, police, a public library, a senior citizen cen-

ter, public works, drainage and traffic improvements. In September, the council had originally considered a plan to raise development fees by $9,300 per new single-family home, along with increases for multi-family, commercial and industrial buildings, but the proposal drew objections from developers and realtors. The Building Industry Association of San Diego even said it would file a legal challenge if the council went forward with the proposal. The new plan will raise the development fees charged for new single-family homes by about $340, as well as an increase in fees for multi-family homes and commercial and industrial

buildings. The new fees will take effect in February. Escondido currently charges $32,374 per new home in development impact fees, which are among the lowest development impact fees when compared to neighboring cities. Currently, the development fees charged by the city only cover about 82% of infrastructure costs, with grants and other onetime revenues typically offsetting the shortfall. The 2% increase still won’t be enough to cover the estimated infrastructure costs, but will cover the costs of inflation for building materials needed for infrastructure projects.

the pipe is exceeded, there’s a potential to leak raw sewage.” On April 10, 2020, the region received a record amount of rainfall, running the risk of overflow. The city narrowly avoided a sewage spill into local waterways. “This is a large project we’ve been working on for a while, involving lots of engineering and money being put into it,” Councilmember Joe Mosca said. “We’re moving as quickly as possible and if we had the public right of way and private land use issues resolved, we’d probably be moving on as one project, one fell swoop.”

Delivery & take-out is also available

The council also unanimously voted to approve a modified 12-unit development on Vulcan Street after hearing and discussing the primary public appeal in length two meetings prior. In response to the council’s requests during the Oct. 14 appeal and public testimony, the developer and city returned doubling the 12 units’ southern setbacks against the property line. After discussing the Vulcan development for several hours and requesting the developer and city return with a modified blueprint, Councilmember Tony Kranz and Mayor Catherine

Blakespear thanked the city staff and applicant for compromising. Some critics have publicly accused the City Council of approving new housing developments without conditions, restraints and little public discussion. In addition, the council voted to extend the temporary emergency motel voucher program; postpone the appointment of Olivenhain representative to the Traffic and Public Safety Commission to March 2021; and accepted the completion of infrastructure improvements to B street, which came in $61,683 under budget.

Eating habits & epidemics By Milton Saier & Dr. Lakshmi Reddy

Viruses, the living dead, are the greatest villains in a “no man’s land.” For millions of years, we have been at war with these zombie particles. It’s not just our naïve immune systems that learn lessons from them, they learn from us too. Viruses, particularly RNA viruses, such as SARS, MERS, and SARS-CoV-2, have extraordinary abilities to mutate and change their genes, thereby jumping the species barrier to expand their range of victims. Our eating habits have caused preventable epidemics. Environmental sustainability can be achieved in part through eating plants instead of animals, and we eat far more animal products than is good for us. Plants have all the good things nature has to offer, and there may be good reasons why they seem to lack pain receptors. Major religious, philosophical, cultural and scientific groups around the world profess that we should respect animal life, but animals are still slaughtered for food eaten by billions of people. Fortunately, we can dramatically reduce the incidence of transmissible diseases while improving our lives, minimizing our morbidities, and extending our lifespans. SARS: Over 75% of emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic. SARS, which caused the 2002 epidemic, was caused by a corona virus, SARS-CoV. It arose in Guangdong Province, China, and then spread around the world, with a case fatality ratio of 6%-15%. Most patients in the initial stages of infection were known to have lived near produce markets, and as many as 40% of early SARS-CoV patients

were food handlers. The virus was traced to wild animals, a palm civet, a raccoon dog and a ferret-badger. There is little doubt that the virus jumped from bats to these animals, and then to humans. Why are bats often the initial reservoir of viruses? These little furry flying mammals have been demonized for ages in folklore, witchcraft and horror stories. Bats also instill in us a different kind of horror by harboring deadly viruses. Surprisingly, they are unaffected by pathogens that normally sicken and kill other mammals. Peng Zhou of the Wuhan Institute of Virology reported that bats “learned” to live with viruses to avoid mistakenly attacking their own tissue by muting their immune systems. MERS: In 2012, a novel corona virus appeared in Saudi Arabia with a higher fatality rate (~35%) than SARS and was designated MERS-CoV. Bats were again found to have provided initial reservoirs, but humans were most likely infected through an intermediate host, possibly the camel. Pathogenicity and progression to respiratory failure were reported to be faster in MERS than SARS although the novel virus seemed to have a lower human to human transmission rate. COVID-19: In January 2020, the first patients with a novel CoV-2 infection were diagnosed. Many who developed COVID-19 had purchased animals from the Wuhan wet market which was probably the initial source of the virus and clearly facilitated its spread. The genome of SARSCoV-2 was found to be similar not only to SARS and bat coronaviruses, but also to coronaviruses present in wild Pangolins smuggled

into China from Malaysia in 2017, possibly the intermediate host. The current COVID-19 pandemic boasts over 6.5 million cases with 30% of all cases occurring in the U.S., although we have only 5% of the world’s population. 100,000 new cases and 5,000 deaths are reported daily. Since there is no currently effective treatment or vaccine for any coronavirus disease, even after 18 years of research on SARS, we can anticipate that cures and vaccines for these and future viral diseases will not be easily developed. Conclusions: Numerous viruses are made “homeless,” due to the decline in all wild animal populations, resulting from hunting, deforestation, environmental degradation and anthropization. Human overpopulation and carnivorous eating habits have enormously increased viral adaptation to humans. Slaughtering wild animals and consuming endangered species should be banned altogether. Undoubtedly, COVID19 will not be the last pandemic. We can only hope that the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic will increase our awareness of emerging viruses so we can take necessary precautions by curbing our craving for meat and discover the rich nutrients in the varieties of seeds, leaves, vegetables and fruits of the plant world. No known epidemic has resulted from the propagation of a plant virus. We don’t all have to become vegans, but we can easily become predominant vegetarians. And if we do, we shall live healthier, and longer quality lives. Milton Saier is a professor of molecular biology at UCSD. Dr. Lakshmi Reddy is a teacher in Los Angeles.

t didn’t take a genius to know that California would vote big against Donald Trump, and that’s just what every pre-election poll showed. But the fact those surveys also got Democrat Joseph Biden’s landslide California margin very close to correct showed that pollsters learned something from their 2016 debacle. Just not enough. In fact, the surveys had already made adjustments in time for the 2018 midterm election, successfully pinpointing the seven California congressional districts Democrats would flip away from Republicans in this state. Here’s the lesson the polls learned: They could no longer settle for surveying stratified random samples of registered voters, but from now on would have to do the extra work of figuring out who was really certain to vote and who was not, and then pretty much exclude others from their surveys. There was also the matter of “secret” or “shy” Republican voters who would go for Republican Trump in the privacy of the voting booth or their kitchen table, while telling pollsters they were either undecided or planning to cast ballots for Trump’s opponent. It turns out many Republican websites and other Trump supporters were dead right when they loudly contended the number of those hidden Trump supporters was greater than even new polling techniques used in many major surveys detected. Some surveys mixed computerized responses and answers to robocall questions with results from live telephone interview-

ers, trying to find out who was who. The results indicate even those tactics were not nearly good enough. Yes, the polls were correct in a few tightly contested states like Iowa and Arizona, but in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — the three states that figured, correctly, as it again turns out — to decide the election, they were off significantly, almost all picking Biden to win all three by anywhere from 2% to 5%. Most major polls, including those touted by the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, counted on a supposed factor cited by Sean Trende, the wonderfully named senior elections analyst at the RealClearPolitics poll-aggregating website. Said Trende in a pre-election interview: “In Internet polling, you click on your keyboard and no one really knows how you answered. When you get a robo poll, it’s just an automated voice and you’re pressing buttons.” So what’s to be shy about? Apparently something. With Election Night returns largely in and large numbers of mail ballots yet to be counted in key states, it was apparent the outcome would not be known for days or weeks. Which means Democrats who doubted the (for them) positive poll prospects were right to be worried. Many felt like football

fans whose team held a lead after three quarters, but had a history of blowing big advantages. Biden might yet sustain his early lead and the final results may show he actually padded it in the last pre-election weeks by campaigning repeatedly in battleground states from Wisconsin to Arizona, Nevada to Michigan. But Trump demonstrated that hard work and myriad rallies in key states have power even when a candidate is down in the polls and many big donors have deserted. Biden’s war chest rose to about $500 million in the pre-election weeks, while Trump’s fell below $300 million, one result of Trump’s early spending, but Trump’s hard work helped in states like Florida, where almost all polls gave Biden pre-election leads, but Trump won handily. Another reason polls proved less reliable this year than in 2018’s midterm election is that voters appeared more volatile than expected, many changing their minds moments before they voted. Four years ago, every poll showed a narrow election, with the lead fluctuating back and forth and the likely margin projected at 2% for Democrat Hillary Clinton. This year, Biden had poll-average leads of 5% or more since he essentially clinched the Democratic nomination on Super Tuesday in early March. The bottom line: Polls were far from perfect this fall, about as unreliable as four years ago, especially in state-level polls outside the West. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Escondido Police continue work on reform By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Police Department and the City of Escondido says the department has been working on improving its policies and procedures for the past few months after incidents of police brutality across the nation sparked widespread outrage in May. Police departments nationwide have been in the spotlight since the deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, sparking numerous protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Residents have since been demanding police reform from city and county governments, including in Escondido. Many residents even called on the city to divest funds from police and reallocate them to non-police forms of public safety, such as social services and other community resources. In June, Escondido Police Chief Ed Varso, who took over as chief in January, said that new policies and training programs were in the works. Now, Varso says reform is well underway. “We’re working through the final stages now of expanding de-escalation within our existing policies, and that expansion also includes some community input as well,” Varso said. “My goal is to have the finalized policy on that before the end of the year.” Varso added that all of the department’s police officers also recently completed additional de-escalation training as part of a countywide initiative by the district attorney’s office. The department is also undergoing implicit bias training starting this week. Varso told The Coast News that the training will be led by Cal State Long Beach’s criminal justice department. He expects all officers to complete the training by January 2021. Varso also said that the department recently updated their Duty to Intervene Policy, which requires that, if a police officer saw some sort of act of excessive force, they have an obligation by policy to intervene and do something about it. “Escondido is a diverse community, and even though I don’t see a problem in how we police – I don’t believe that we have officers that are targeting any members of our community based solely on anything other than criminal behavior – I think it’s important for us to understand community perspective, and it makes us better at what we do, it makes us better at communicating with the public and taking the time to listen to community concerns,” Varso said.

Skaters want changes at Alex Road Skatepark By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Skateboarders and advocates want to see changes at the city’s largest skatepark on the north side of the city, including a name change. The park formally known as Alex Road Skatepark, a name chosen by the city when the park was being planned in 2010, is located at the corner of Foussat and Alex Roads just north of Route 76. Opened in 2013, the 22,700-acre concrete park includes bowls, snake runs, banks, rails and ledges, as well as a viewing area, small parking lot and a single-stall bathroom. The popular, well-used skate park is open during daylight hours only because there are no lights installed at the park. There is also no running water, which is second on Micaela Ramirez’s list for needed changes at the park. Her and many other skateboarders’ top priority is to first change the name from Alex Road to “Prince Park.” The name change would honor the late Michael “Prince” Johnson, a professional Oceanside skateboarder who died about a month before the park opened. Many locals have been calling it Prince Park for years. “He was a local hero,” Ramirez said. “He inspired so many kids to stay out of gangs, out of violence and off drugs.” Ramirez is the president and founder of Poseiden Foundation, a local non-profit with a global reach that encourages youth to find their passion through skateboarding. The non-profit has been involved in the name change effort and pushing for improvements to the park, and also runs a skateboard exchange program through word of mouth with the young skaters there. According to Ramirez, many of the kids who skate at Prince Park come from low socioeconomic backgrounds and often go without food. Poseiden Foundation has previously brought food and other items like shoes to provide for kids at the park. Ramirez said that some of the park’s younger skaters stay as long as they can at the park because it’s a safe place away from their neighborhoods threatened by gang violence or from their abusive homes. Ramirez wants to know why the name change still hasn’t happened. The park never received running water, shade and other amenities in the first place. She also said the bathroom isn’t cleaned often by the city. “The bathroom used to be atrocious but it’s cleaner now because the kids cleaned it to leave a message to the city,” Ramirez said. Without running water, the park was left without a proper sanitation station for some time until more recently when a portable sta-

tion was installed. Ramirez credits Councilmember Christopher Rodriguez for that sanitation station, as well as more overall attention to the park from the city. “When we met with kids there last time, they couldn’t believe there was toilet paper in the bathroom,” Ramirez said. Christopher Rodriguez, who represents District 2, has taken a particular interest in the city’s largest skate park located in District 1. According to Rodriguez, he sent an email to City Manager Deanna Lorson and the Parks and Recreation staff requesting the

installation of shade sails there, which was approved by Council in a 4 to 1 vote back in September. Councilmember Esther Sanchez, who represents District 1 where the park is located, voted against the sails because of resident’s concerns regarding plastics and other toxic chemicals in the sails’ material. Instead, she preferred the use of shade trees or potentially a shade structure with a solar panel that could potentially power lights at the park to prolong skating time. Ramirez said shade trees would take a long time to grow big enough to provide the shade needed

at the park, where skaters have been going without shade for seven years now. Public Works Division Manager Nathan Mertz told Council at its Sept. 9 meeting, when the shade sails were approved, that the park would need an induction system to store power to use solar at night, otherwise it would be better to just connect to San Diego Gas & Electric for sports lighting. Ramirez was told the shade sails would be installed no later than February 2021. When Rodriguez walked through the park with residents, he found the bathrooms to be “un-

satisfactory” and later met with city staff at the park to discuss short-term and long-term infrastructure improvements there. Not long after, the hand sanitizing station was brought to the park. Rodriguez is also supportive of the name change. “I fully support the name change and look forward to the public process to get the name change,” he told The Coast News. Ramirez said changing the name would inspire more pride from skaters for the park, who would then take more responsibility over what is essentially their home away from home.

Coronavirus

Regional groups adapt to COVID-19 By Samantha Nelson

REGION — As social distancing guidelines remain in place, service and social organizations around North County are navigating the challenge of keeping members engaged and active from afar. Groups like the Vista Newcomers Club and the Oceanside Pacific Kiwanis Clubs have taken to Zoom to hold their regular meetings. “We’ve lost that camaraderie that face-to-face meetings have, but so far (Zoom) works well,” said Carolyn Brian, president of the Oceanside Pacific Kiwanis Club. “It allows us to get together even though we’re at a distance through a computer.” Though the Kiwanis Club has currently suspended any service projects that require in-person participation, the organization has continued working with Brother Benno’s to provide PPE (personal protective equipment) and face masks to homeless and low-income families. Brian said the club

LOCAL GROUPS are still holding regular remote meetings and providing services for residents in need. File photo

members have so far made about 1,000 disposable masks out of shop towels, a heavier duty paper towel. Over the summer, the Oceanside Pacific Kiwanis Club received a $500 grant from its district parent organization that they used to provide food and equipment to Brother Benno’s. Though COVID-19 has certainly limited the Kiwanis Club’s ability to physically go out into the community, it hasn’t stopped the group from helping altogether. “We need to continue to engage with our services that we do for the

community,” Brian said. According to President Judy Beaumont, the Vista Newcomers Club is a social club that helps newer arrivals to the area meet others and become engaged in the community. Beautmont said keeping everybody together has been a challenge since the pandemic began. At first it was a struggle to get everyone on board with Zoom, but the group has since managed to keep most of its members and have started Zoom groups on a weekly basis. “We have a group

called Curious Gals that meets every Monday just to chat,” Beaumont said. The Newcomers Club has also kept its book club alive via Zoom and has a thriving Mahjong group whose members play together virtually. There is also a happy hour time held once a month during which member can grab a glass of wine or whatever drink of their choice along with a snack and meet with everyone virtually. “We’re doing as much as we can to keep everybody together,” Beaumont said.

County reports 293 new COVID-19 cases, 10 deaths By City News Service

REGION — San Diego County public health officials have reported 293 new COVID-19 cases and 10 new deaths, raising the region’s case total to 57,702 and the region’s death toll to 901. The 10 deaths occurred between Oct. 6 and Nov. 2, according to county health officials. The victims were six men and four women, whose ages ranged from late 40s to late 80s. All but one had underlying medical conditions, according to the county. Of the 8,200 tests reported Tuesday, 4% returned positive, bringing the 14-day rolling average of positive tests to 3%. Of the total number of cases in the county, 3,968 -- or 6.9% -- have required hospitalization and 918 pa-

tients -- or 1.6% of all cases -- had to be admitted to an intensive care unit. Five new community outbreaks were also confirmed Monday, two in business settings, two in restaurant/bar settings, and one in a health care setting. Over the previous seven days, 31 community outbreaks were confirmed. A community outbreak is defined as three or more COVID-19 cases in a setting and in people of different households over the past 14 days. The county last week avoided returning to the state’s purple tier -- the most restrictive -- and remains in the less restrictive red tier of the state’s four-tiered coronavirus monitoring system. The usual Tuesday update on the state’s four-tier reopening plan has been

rescheduled to today due to the election, according to county officials. On Oct. 27, the county’s adjusted case rate dropped to 6.5 new daily COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population. According to the California Department of Public Health, the county’s unadjusted case rate is 7.4 per 100,000 -- enough to be in the purple tier, which has a floor of 7 per 100,000. However, the high volume of tests the county is able to perform daily allows for an adjustment from the state. This adjustment has kept the county in the red tier for several weeks, saving it from having to shut down nearly all nonessential indoor businesses. The state data reflect the previous week’s case

data to determine where counties stand in the state’s reopening system. San Diego County did show modest improvement, dropping 0.4 from last week’s unadjusted case rate of 7.8. The testing positivity rate continued an upward trend, rising 0.2% from last week to reach 3.5%, but remains low enough for this metric to remain in the orange tier. If a county reports statistics meeting metrics in a higher tier for two consecutive weeks, it will move into that more restrictive tier for a minimum of three weeks. The state’s health equity metric, which looks at the testing positivity for areas with the least healthy conditions, dropped from 5.5% to 5.1% and entered the orange tier.

Rapid testing center opens at The Shoppes By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A new rapid COVID-19 testing center opened Oct. 30 at The Shoppes at Carlsbad. The Covid Clinic launched its newest location at a bus station near The Shoppes to provide drive-through service for rapid, PCR, antibody and antigen tests. Shanelle Borders, the San Diego regional manager for Covid Clinic, said the location is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Appointments are recommended, but drive-ups are welcome. “We had to work with the city, and the most important thing was the licensing,” Borders said of opening in Carlsbad. “We saw a need in the community. To help control the virus, I think if people have more access to testing they can prevent infecting others.” Borders said the tests range from $150 to $199 with an accuracy between 96.7% to 100%. Borders said most who use rapid testing need so to return to work or travel and need the results quickly. She said results are texted and emailed to each individual within 60 minutes and are covered by insurance. The PCR test results, though, are delivered within three to seven days. The antibody test is for those who don’t currently feel sick but want to find out if

they have previously been infected and recovered from COVID-19, according to the company. Additionally, the location will also offer strep throat and flu tests for $30 each. For those who test positive or who are negative but showing symptoms, the company also offers the ability to join a paid clinical trial in San Diego, Border said. As for the Carlsbad location, Borders said people began lining up at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 30, but were turned away until the site opened at 1 p.m. She said they tested at least 100 people on the first day and expect to average more than 100 per day. “Many patients are concerned about their current health and whether they’ve been exposed, or currently experiencing symptoms, the 20-minute test gives them peace of mind quickly,” said Dr. Matthew Abinante, founder and president of Covid Clinic. “And, some employers want fast testing results turnaround when someone might have inadvertently exposed other employees in the workplace. It helps companies make informed decisions about which actions to take to limit the spread of the infection.” The Covid Clinic also has locations in San Diego, La Mesa, Chula Vista and Temecula.

Election R esults Lawson-Remer poised to win seat on board By City News Service

REGION — The San Diego County Board of Supervisors likely will have a Democratic majority after Tuesday’s election. District 3 challenger Terra Lawson-Remer — who served as a senior adviser in the Obama administration — appears to have ousted incumbent Kristin Gaspar, a Republican elected in 2016. Lawson-Remer has not issued an official statement, but did thank her supporters as results rolled in Tuesday night. “It's early, but I am so grateful for the support of so many thousands of San Diegans who want leadership in our county that reflects the vision and values we share,” she said on Twitter. She leads Gaspar, 60% to 40%, although results are incomplete and unofficial. The coastal North County district includes a dozen neighborhoods in the city of San Diego, as well as the cities of Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido and Solana Beach. A former Encinitas mayor and City Council member, Gaspar is also a small business owner. She has not conceded. Lawson-Remer has never held public office, but was endorsed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, Rep. Scott Peters and county Supervisor Nathan Fletcher. There are still 370,000 ballots left to be counted, San Diego County Registrar of Voters Michael Vu announced, but the county will not release additional results until Thursday at 5 p.m.

Levin won the seat in 2018, defeating Republican Diane Harkey in the general election, and taking over for Issa, who spent nearly two decades representing the area before announcing he would not seek re-election. Maryott, a certified financial planner and San Juan Capistrano CityCouncilman, previously ran for the seat in 2018.

Del Mar Fairgrounds helps drive new trend: car concerts By Caitlin Steinberg

DEL MAR — Internationally praised band, Fitz and the Tantrums, rocked local concert goers at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Friday, Oct, 30 in what has become a new method of enjoying large live-entertainment events since the onset of COVID, a concert in your car. Roughly 400 cars filled with families and friends attended the concert, parking in socially distanced spaces surrounding a 360 degree stage lit with jumbo screens and bright lights, marking a new era of entertainment. The concert was hosted by Concerts in Your Car, a California based event company hosting a variety of events at the Del Mar Racetrack through the remainder of the year, including concerts, movie nights, a holiday light show, and performance of the Nutcracker. Fitz and the Tantrums, a Southern California band known for catchy Indie Pop ballads, played an energetic set spanning nearly a decade of music making to a crowd of masking wearing concert goers. Playing some of their most popular hits, “Hand Clap” and “123456” as well as songs from their latest album, “All the Feels,” the band of 6 lit up the stage as couples and families danced near their cars with food and drink in hand. Audience member, Kristy Valdiva attended with a group of women parked in the front row, relaxed in their lawn chairs, masks on, and ready to enjoy the experience. “If you go to a music venue, maybe there’s handful of kids there, but look at

this,” Vladiva said. “Families are desperate to get out and experience some connectivity outside of the home, away from remote learning and remote work.” According to the group, the event felt less like a traditional concert and more like a socially distanced tailgating experience. “This is a great way to enjoy live music, have a little bit of your own space, and feel safe in the outdoors,” the group agreed. Founder and producer of Concerts in Your Car, Vincenzo Giammanco is proud of the series’ ability to not only bring employment to struggling event spaces and musicians, but offer audiences a fresh outlet to experience live-entertainment. According to Giammanco, the series employs over 100 local food and beverage vendors as well as security patrolling the grounds during the show, ensuring audiences are in compliance with state health regulations. “It definitely creates a small economic boom in the area,” Giammanco said, “and for a lot of the bands that hit the stage, it’s their first show since COVID.” On Oct. 24, the series hosted The Beach Boys at the fairgrounds to a sold out crowd of 600 vehicles, Giammanco said. “They had hundreds of shows on the books before COVID but they only ended up playing three and they were with us, Concerts in Your Car,” Giammanco said. “It’s really awesome to give artists a platform to perform and give people the opportunity at local venues to enjoy them.”

On Friday, as the show wound down and Fitz and the Tantrums said their first goodbye, the traditional shouts calling encore were replaced with a chorus of car horns and cheers, a sign of the times. Concerts in Your Car will continue to host events at the fairgrounds through the year, Giammanco says, including concerts, movie nights, a drive-through holiday light show and a production of the Nutcracker.

Aircraft gives squadron airlift abilities By Staff

CAMP PENDLETON — Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron with Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, made history by becoming a flying squadron for the first time in the unit’s existence. The Marines and sailors of H&HS took ownership of a UC-12W Huron aircraft July 31, and took the plane on its first flight with the squadron four days later. With this addition to MCAS Camp Pendleton, every air station housing aircraft from 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing now has operational support airlift capabilities. The Huron aircraft can increase a unit’s operational readiness significantly. “This is the first time in known history where OSA aircraft are stationed here on MCAS Camp Pendleton,” said Lt. Col. Frank Savarese, H&HS commanding officer. “This is a big win for the Marine Corps overall because that OSA love is spread throughout Camp Pendleton.” The aircraft can carry

military personnel, equipment and aircraft parts. The aircraft saves the unit money and time when it comes to the transportation of parts and equipment. The UC-12W can travel from the West Coast to the East Coast on one tank of gas. The C-12’s are designed to provide a cost-effective way to move high priority personnel and cargo from point A to point B,” said Lt. Col. Corey Martin, operations officer for H&HS, MCAS Camp Pendleton. “The aircraft has been around for years, so the maintenance is very low and straight forward.” Different units can use the aircraft as well, the Huron is not restricted to just air station squadrons. Ground units can also send in a request asking for H&HS to support. “From here, we are going to have a lot of programs that are going to be inspectable and policies to get this aviation side of the unit up and going,” said Savarese. “But no matter what, the ‘Stampede’ is ready to support the MAGTF in any way shape or form.”

Solana Beach housing plan available for public comment By Dan Brendel

SOLANA BEACH — The City of Solana Beach, in a draft affordable housing plan, has identified sites whose existing zoning could accommodate more than 900 additional units, the vast majority on commercial parcels in the city’s southwest quadrant. The city council, at its Oct. 28 meeting, suggested they might like to consider some alternative sites, in hopes of distributing new residential development WITHOUT UPZONING parcels elsewhere, commercial parcels largely in Solana Beach’s more evenly. southwest quadrant would undergird most of the city’s affordable housing plan for the next Though they gave no eight years.

formal direction to that effect to city staff. “It seems less than equitable that only one portion of town get all of the units,” city resident Tracy Richmond said. “There's a very significant impact on one quadrant of the city, which is unfortunate,” Councilman Dave Zito said. Though any sizable redistribution probably isn’t possible without additional “up-zoning”— allowing more units per acre, likely in taller multifamily buildings — elsewhere in the city. “When you look at our zoning, … very few of the sites on the east side of I-5 allow for multi-unit developments,” City Manager Greg Wade said. “This is largely what you end up with,” council having earlier directed staff “to allocate the units without having to make zoning revisions.” Of parcels east of I-5, only the Lomas Santa Fe Plaza shopping center (Vons, HomeGoods, etc.) could support a significant number of housing units under current zoning, Community Development Director Joseph Lim told The Coast News. That’s assuming one or more of the center’s parking lots or buildings were redeveloped. The public may weigh in on the city’s draft affordable housing plan through an electronic survey and a Nov. 12 virtual workshop, links for which are posted on the city’s web site. City staff will take comment through Nov. 23, make tweaks, and then sub-

mit the plan in mid-December to the state government for its initial review. State law requires the city plan for the additional housing units — including nearly 600 priced for lower-income households — as part of a cyclical update to the Housing Element, or chapter, of its General Plan. Required planning includes, in particular, zoning enough parcels for sufficient allowable densities in order to meet regionally assigned housing production quotas at various income levels. In general, deeper levels of affordability — i.e., capping prices farther below market rates — require higher densities. The rationale being that, with more units, private and nonprofit developers can spread costs and offset submarket prices in order to make their projects financially viable. For Solana Beach, state law considers 20 units per acres the minimum necessary to enable to private market to generate affordable housing for the lowest income brackets. State-mandated municipal planning measure may also include various policy incentives. Popular among these are policies streamlining homeowners’ ability to build accessory dwelling units (ADUs, aka “granny flats”) on their properties, or to convert portions of their homes for renting (“junior ADUs”). Solana Beach appealed its assigned affordable housing unit quota, seeking a lesser target. SANDAG, a regional agency, denied the TURN TO HOUSING ON A15

Oceanside hires third party to review El Corazon purchase request By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The city is investing more money into a third party review looking at the potential sale or lease of a portion of its El Corazon property to its developer Sudberry Development, Inc. Formerly a sand mine until it was donated to the city in 1994, the El Corazon property will be home to a variety of recreational, civic, commercial, hospitality and residential uses according to the El Corazon Specific Plan, which was approved in 2009. This plan designated uses for the park, including where the nine different park sites, commercial areas, hotel areas, civic areas and habitat areas will be located. In 2013, Council entered into a Disposition and Development Agreement with Sudberry for the development of El Corazon’s “Village Commercial” area, along “Oceanside Boulevard Commercial” and hotel-designated areas. Then in 2019, Sudberry submitted plans for the approximately 5,500 to 7,000seat arena, which will be the San Diego Socker’s new home, and a 238-unit, mixed-use development in the Village Commercial areas of the property. That same year, Sudberry submitted documents requesting to purchase or lease the Village Commercial area. Under the terms of its agreement with the city, Sudberry has the right to seek the long-term lease or purchase of land in the commercial areas that it’s developing. At the Oct. 21 council meeting, Deputy City Manager and Development Services Director Jonathan Borrego clarified that Sudberry does not have the right to purchase any portion of the areas designated for park use nor has the developer expressed their interest in doing so. Following Sudberry’s request, the city entered into an agreement with third-party Keyser Mar-

ston & Associates to analyze the developer’s request to purchase or lease the land. Originally the agreement cost the city $47,500, but staff requested an additional $18,500 for a total cost of $66,000 to complete the analysis. “There is some additional analysis needed at this point in time, which is why we’re seeking additional funding at an agreement cost not to exceed $66,000,” Borrego told Council. Council approved staff’s request 3-2, with Councilmembers Ryan Keim and Esther Sanchez opposed. “There’s a lot of history here with El Corazon and the primary purpose for El Corazon is to be a park, a people’s park that is going to meet the needs of the community now and into the future,” Sanchez said.

Sanchez also noted the city’s need for more field space for sports, a need that El Corazon was meant to satisfy in part. “It’s been 10 years,” Sanchez said. “We need to reaffirm our commitment to the Specific Plan.” Several residents are opposed to selling El Corazon land to Sudberry. Shari Mackin told Council that the park will lose its funding mechanism if the city sells its commercial areas off and stressed the need for more field spaces for Oceanside sports, a need that El Corazon was meant to satisfy in part. “It’s time to recommit to the El Corazon Specific Plan,” Mackin said. Diane Nygaard, a Friends of El Corazon board member, said many residents were disturbed to see staff’s request for more money for Keyser

nity is just learning about it now,” Nygaard said. “We need an open and transparent process involving the community.” Nygaard said there needs to be a plan to replace any revenue streams lost for the park as well as a plan to offset the sale of land at El Corazon. Councilmember Christopher Rodriguez said the El Corazon Specific Plan’s funding mechanism for the parks won’t work today. “When you’re dealing with retail and commercial enterprises and businesses, the plan that was put forth 10 years ago is not going to work today,” Rodriguez said. “A new plan needs to come up with other options that fund the park.” Rodriguez added that to come up with a new plan the private sector will need to be involved. Borrego clarified that the item was not discussing any purchase or sale of land, and that such an item would come back to Council as a separate item in a public setting. The soonest an item discussing the sale of land would come back to Council is in early 2021. Though Keim was not opposed to the request, he wanted Council to wait on approving more funding for the third party analysis until after the Nov. 3 election when everyone would have “clear heads.”

SCHOOLS

and Pearson voiced serious concerns with students’ academic performance. According to data collected by the district and reported by Nye, middle and high school students in all classes earning an “F” is up nearly 311.5% this year over the same grading period in 2019-20, Williams said. Also, “D” and “C” letter grades are up nearly 60% and 11%, respectively, while “A” and “B” grades are down nearly 5% and 19%, respectively. “Every day is a battle for some students,” Williams said. “Student Some teachers think the DL (distance learning) plus-model is working because teachers have adjusted to this current model. And it is working for some students but based on the past grading period it is not working for most students.” Also, the board approved in a split vote to institute a pilot program to address students who are struggling, which took the CUSD administration by surprise. The board did not give CUSD administrators a timeline or specific direction or a total number of students to join the program, instead, leaving those decisions to staff in addition to planning for reopening on Jan. 5. Trustees Kathy Rallings, Claudine Jones and Williamson pointed to the Poway Unified School District as an example pilot program and its success. Poway Unified began its in-person special education pilot program several weeks ago. “We do it with summer school all the time,” Rallings said. “We also offer special services under different programs, so I think those students most in need can be identified for a pilot. In my view, it’s a good compromise.” As for the ventilation systems, they include fresh air intake through HVAC units with minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) filters, along with installing HEPA units to supplement HVAC filtration. One negative impact, according to Assistant Superintendent Chris Wright, is doors and windows should be closed. If left open, it in-

T he C oast News creases the risk the HVAC units will freeze as the rise in energy output causes failures. Parents will also consent to symptom screenings as will students, although students cannot be forced to take a COVID-19 test. Teachers will also be provided plexiglass dividers. The Carlsbad Unified Teachers Association, meanwhile, was happy with the result. Earlier in the day, about 300 teachers, parents and students rallied at Sage Creek High School to urge the trustees to push back the start date. About 100 parents and students also arrived to support reopening on Nov. 30. “The board also voted to have everyone transition on the same date,” said CUTA President Lindsey Gordon. “That is a huge victory for our community. Parents and teachers need to have time to transition and do it smoothly. Allowing everyone to transition at the same time will help parents with childcare and have time to make plans. It will give teachers ample time to plan and prepare for new ways of teaching.”

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you don’t lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but it’s the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cat’s co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrr-suasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later.

TRIVIA TEST ANSWERS

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) While you’re to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Don’t reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even sure-footed Goats need to know where they’ll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But you’ll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones, by week’s end. BORN THIS WEEK: You’re a good friend and a trusted confidante.

CITY OF CARLSBAD NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

CITY OF ENCINITAS

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to you, because your interest may be affected, that the City Council of the City of Carlsbad will hold a public hearing at the Council Chamber, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad, California, at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020, to reconsider an appeal of the Planning Commission’s decision to approve a Site Development Plan to allow the construction of a four-story, 23-unit residential apartment project which includes three inclusionary housing units, on property generally located at the southwest corner of Romeria Street and Gibraltar Street, and more particularly described as: Lots 393 and 394 of La Costa South Unit No. 5, in the City of Carlsbad, County of San Diego, State of California, according to Map thereof No. 6600, filed in the office of the County Recorder of San Diego County, March 10, 1970 Whereas, on July 15, 2020 the City of Carlsbad Planning Commission voted 7-0 to Approve of a Site Development Plan to construct a four-story, 23-unit residential apartment project which includes three inclusionary housing units, on property generally located at the southwest corner of Romeria Street and Gibraltar Street within Local Facilities Management Zone 6. The City Planner has determined that this project is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 15332 “In-Fill Development Projects” of the State CEQA Guidelines and will not have any adverse significant impact on the environment. Copies of the staff report will be available on and after Nov. 13, 2020.

‘Tree Doctor’ voted Best of North County Since 1985, Russell Bowman has been delighting residents of San Diego County with his plant expertise. So, it’s no wonder Bowman Plant and Tree Care Specialists have been named the San Diego Union-Tribune Community Press’ “Best of North County” for tree and plant care for a 2nd year in a row. Lovingly referred to as the “tree doctor extraordinaire” by his clients, Bowman is known for transforming sickly trees and gardens into Disneyesque wonderlands. Using his own proprietary blend of organic biological nutrition, Bowman feeds plants at night—a trick he picked up during his time as a horticulturist at Disneyland. “When you feed plants at night, they have enough time to absorb the nutrition, before it is degraded by the sun’s rays.” He said. “That’s why, when most people are winding down their days, eating dinner, and going to bed, we are out feeding plants and trees.” He’s done more than just care for sick plants, he’s revolutionized both residential and commercial properties. “When you give your body proper nutrition, it affects your overall health and boosts your immunity so you don’t get sick. The same is true for plants and trees.” Bowman feeds complete

“nutrition delivery biology” derived from earthworm castings to replenish the missing healthy soil biology. This works with a client’s current irrigation system so that each time the landscaping is watered, the needed soil biology is replenished. “This is the secret to keeping your property looking like a five-star resort.” Russell is quick to point out that healthy plants are also environmentally friendly. A healthy plant will be more

efficient at photosynthesizing sunlight into oxygen and the healthy soil uses far less water.

CARLSBAD — Inclusion and acceptance powers a member of the Kelly Elementary School robotics team. Collaboration Motion Fun Generators (CoMo Fun), a team consisting of third, fourth and fifth graders, is rallying behind one of its special needs teammates, Bailey Benton. As part of the First Lego League, the team partnered with Ainsely’s Angels to help keep special needs individuals active during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The team is also participating in a virtual 5K on Jan. 30, has raised $1,200 since last week and runs with Bailey two times per week (in masks) to help keep her active. Bailey, who suffers from Down Syndrome, Autism and Cerebral Palsey, had double hip and foot surgery early in the pandemic, but has rebounded nicely, said Nicole Buchanan, the team’s coach. “They realized a lot of their friends with disabilities were now even more excluded from everything,” Buchanan said of the team. “They wanted to work with trying to get kids with disabilities out and active.” She said the team would come by Bailey’s home and see her through the window to help keep her spirits high after surgery. This year the team’s project was centered on

fitness, so they partnered with Ainsley’s Angels to share ideas for a chair where a special needs individual can unclip and walk a couple steps through the finish line. In addition to Bailey, the team consists of Emery Cramond, Olivia Johnson, Moorea Marchi, Brad Lyon, Alana Gomes, Griffin Marchi and Connor Marshall. Since Bailey is active with Ainsely’s Angels, the team opted to raise money for active wheelchairs, strollers and chariots to help special needs people stay fit, Buchanan said. Robin Bourque-Totsch, the Southern California ambassador for Ainsely’s Angels, said it is rare for children to be so open with their special need’s peers. Much of it stems around fear and a misunderstanding of special needs, but the CoMo Fun team is the opposite, she said. Instead, the team asks questions, communicates with Bailey, includes her and are open to learning about different conditions, Bourque-Totsch said. “Bailey is capable of walking short distances,” she said. “We want to give them that freedom and capability of crossing the finish line and feeling like a runner. That is something that this little group said hey ‘what if we designed something.’” To join the virtual run or sponsor the team, visit RunSignup, Facebook or Crowdwise.

Sports NFL Sundays are go time for Mighty Mo sports talk

C

an one still vote for Maureen Quessenberry as the mother of this year, and possibly, every other one? What North County mom can match Quessenberry’s credentials, which includes having three sons on NFL rosters this season. From oldest to youngest, here’s Team Q: Paul Quessenberry was a tight end on the New England Patriots practice squad, David Quessenberry is an offensive lineman for the Tennessee Titans and Scott Quessenberry plays offensive line for the Los Angeles Chargers. This makes Sundays in Quessenberry’s Carlsbad home a mishmash of sights and sounds. It’s equal parts cozy residence, rowdy sports bar and a place where everyone knows your name and your intentions. “We have a big barbecue at halftime and some people in the neighborhood just come for that,” said Maureen, who’s better known as “Mo,” as in go. “That’s OK.” What’s not cool is if the TVs and other streaming platforms freeze. Tracking the three La Costa Canyon High products is an electronic and internet operation better suited for Qualcomm than Quessenberry. “I don’t know how to do it,” she said. “All I know is there are a lot of computer cords and sometimes the games break off the internet, so I have the NFL app and someone will have the ESPN app, where we can’t watch it but we can see the play-by-play — we don’t miss it no matter what.” Sometimes a Team Q player shines, but not necessarily for the camera. “That’s when we go to the remote control,” Mo said. “If Scott gets a block, because it happens so fast, we replay it in slow motion otherwise we couldn’t even see it.” Her three sons are a chip off the old block, which would be David Quessenberry Sr. Before a 30-year Navy career and retiring from Delta, this family football love affair took flight when he played for the U.S. Naval Academy. And for 25 years, including when the boys were tykes, Team Q had San Diego Chargers season tickets. “The kids just loved going to all the games,” Mo said. “Philip Rivers said when Scott joined the team, he knew more about the Chargers than he did.” After LCC, college called: Paul, Navy and a five-year stint in the U.S. Marine Corps; David, San Jose State; and Scott,

No guts, no problem

Encinitas author Ian Thompson explores the life of Maggie Houlihan

By Jordan P. Ingram

ENCINITAS — During this year’s contentious election cycle filled with fake news and online vitriol, Encinitas author Ian Thompson couldn’t help but think of his late wife, former Encinitas City Councilwoman Maggie Houlihan, and the similar battles she faced while serving in office. “(Maggie) was a fighter and a survivor,” Thompson told The Coast News. “She showed a dogged determination and commitment to Encinitas that came from the heart. The way she saw the city changing drove her to politics. She got in without a lot of money, grassroots, and she fought to maintain community character.” Thompson’s book, “An Inconvenient Voice: One Woman’s Fight Against Injustice,” chronicles his life growing up in England, working in the Southern California surfing industry and his life with Houlihan in Encinitas until her death in 2011. Houlihan studied anthropology at Long Beach State University. As a single mother, she later graduated summa cum laude from UC San Diego, where she also worked as a library cataloguer. After moving to Encinitas, Houlihan and Thompson married near Sunset Cliffs in 1983.

Enter the ‘buzzsaw’ Starting in 2000, Houlihan served on the council for 11 years, including two terms as mayor (2004 and 2009) under the city’s rotating mayoral system. Thompson described her as a “conservative rebel” with the following mantra: “Of the people, by the people, for the people.” “She never really needed to raise money from special interests or kowtow to someone with deep pockets,” Thompson said. “It was all grassroots and because there was no special interest money behind

her, she could afford to be sincere.” And that’s when she ran into a “buzzsaw of opposition” driven by developers and other individuals with something to gain from the city — a withering force that Thompson said he hasn’t seen the likes of since. “It was really quite devastating to someone who wanted to protect the community to the point where they were out to remove her from political office,” Thompson said. Thompson recalled there were certain individuals actively campaigning against his wife, attempting to intimidate her and silence her views. At the time, The Coast News reported that David Meyers, a local developer and Paul Ecke’s brotherin-law, even hired a clown to stalk Houlihan around town. “They were out to remove her from political office,” Thompson said. “There were complaints to the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC), sticker campaigns and clowns paid to stalk her — all of which was below the belt.” Thompson acknowledged a correlation between social media today and “hate mailers” in the early 2000s, noting that while the level of vitriol has increased online, “the ability for human beings to use dirt has always been there.” During Houlihan’s time in office, she strongly encouraged civic engagement and she worked to increase local government transparency, helping launch televised council meetings and making online city documents and electronic notices of agenda items more available to the public. Houlihan also cared deeply for the environment, helping establish a smoking ban on city beaches, and she is credited with creating the Pet Health

she can get through it, until close to the very end.” At the time, Thompson advised her to step down from the council and focus on her health, but she refused, attending council meetings via teleconference or wearing a mask while sitting on the dais. City staff members brought documents to the house for her to sign. “That to me was remarkable because that was true selflessness,” Thompson said. Near the end of her life when she was confined to a bed, Thompson said he often found people lined up to visit Houlihan at their home. To Thompson’s surprise, Ecke, a longtime opponent of Houlihan’s regarding local development issues, sent flowers to the ailing councilwoman. “In terms of issues, they were on opposite sides,” Thompson said. “But when she saw the strength of Ecke’s character to rise above those conflicts and send flowers, that surprised me, and I know it surprised her. She felt very encouraged.” However, Thompson

love interesting, curious people. I try to surround myself with them, read their books and listen raptly as they spin the tales of their discoveries and adventures. The best part is that I never envy them. There is nary a daring bone in my body or thrill-seeking cell in my cerebrum. I may be slapdash, sometimes spontaneous and I can even claim enthusiastic. I will never, however, be happy with heights and my curiosity is easily satisfied. The sun comes up and goes down. It’s magic. That’s sufficient. I was fascinated when I found out why, but I would have been content to go through life just knowing it happens, because I saw it happen. Although I regularly wish that I could be Queen of Everything, I cannot deny that if my particular personality had been in charge over the ages, life would be considerably more bland. A good example is the artichoke. Hungry or not, I would have strolled right by that ugly, prickly thing and never have imagined that if you trimmed off the thorns, steamed it and then were satisfied to nibble just the very end off of every leaf, you would enjoy a tasty side dish. If I had somehow managed to get that far, it’s unlikely I would have bothered laboriously scraping off the choke to get to the delicious heart. I would never, ever have picked, much less cooked with something that makes my tongue sting, my mouth burn and my eyes water. Salsa would not be the same. The idea of snitching honey while the bees are still using it would never have dawned on me. If I had been the head of the think tank back when, Las Vegas would still be a dark spot in the desert.

Early risers: Hot air ballooning in Arizona desert hit the road e’louise ondash

W

e are about 200 feet above the Sonoran Desert floor when we spot a sizable nest ensconced in the arms of a large saguaro cactus below. “It probably belongs to an owl,” surmises our veteran balloon pilot, Patrick Stevens, who has made more than 10,000 of these flights over the northern Phoenix Metro area. Looking down on an owl’s nest wedged in a saguaro is a unique perspective I never expected to experience and probably never will again. But as the shadow of our 315,000-cubic-foot balloon floats across Arizona ground, we are treated to continuous views of seemingly endless open desert in one direction, residential and commercial encroachment in the other. “Hot air ballooning has become more of a challenge because of continuing development,” says Stevens, who celebrates his 30th year of piloting this month. “Launch sites vary dayto-day. We have about a dozen that we use, mostly in north Phoenix and a couple in Scottsdale.” We hauled out of bed

at 3:30 a.m. to make it from the CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa (civana.com) in Carefree, north of Scottsdale, to the Phoenix office of the Rainbow Ryders Hot Air Balloon Ride Co. (rainbowryders.com) by 5:30 a.m. The company’s large warehouse shelters a fleet of balloons and baskets, and despite the early hour, is a beehive of activity. Apparently, others feel it’s worth losing a few hours of sleep to take this bucket-list adventure. Masks for passengers, pilots and crew are mandatory, and there is ample room in the warehouse to spread out and enjoy some pre-flight snacks.

“Actually, getting up early was no problem for us,” remarks one passenger who spoke for his party of three. “We flew in last night and are still on East Coast time.” Now it’s off to the launch site, which, after sending up a tiny test balloon, does not meet the approval of the five pilots. We arrive at the second one 20 minutes later and pilots and chase crew begin inflating the giant colorful orbs. It’s a noisy-but-intriguing exercise that provides plenty of photo ops and questions. Once our balloon is fully inflated, we climb up and over the sides of the heavy wicker basket while

several crew members tug at the lines to make sure we don’t launch prematurely. With everyone aboard, the lines are carefully loosened and the ground drops away. In my book, this is the best part of the ride. We can’t squelch the urge to wave goodbye to the crew, who play along for the bizillionth time. Our gentle ascension is quiet and smooth, and it presents us with an increasingly larger view of the Earth. Stevens remarks that the usual summer monsoon rains were a no-show this year, and that record-breaking heat took a surprising

toll on some of the saguaros. These endangered cactuses are not quite as hardy as one might imagine; they are highly dependent on water and temperature. Fortunately, though, most did survive to continue their roles as desert sentinels and visitor-magnets. Monsoons or no, from our vantage point at 2,000 feet-plus, the desert still looks like a world that supports an unusually large number of flora and fauna, and we are content to drift along taking in the 360-degree, bird’s-eye view. Balloon pilots have no choice as to the direction of the drift, only at what al-

titude we hang in the sky. Charge up the burner and we go up; let the balloon cool and we go down. Despite his thousands of flights, Stevens says the experience never gets old. “Mother Nature is different every day and I get to meet people from all over the world,” he explains. “And every time we go up, it’s like helping people open a Christmas present.” For more Scottsdale-area outdoor experiences, lodging and restaurants, visit Experience Scottsdale (experiencescottsdale.com).

UCSD gets $39M grant for renewable energy testbed By City News Service

REGION — UC San Diego will receive a $39 million grant to build a testbed to allow universities, utilities and industry leaders to gain a better understanding of how to integrate renew-

energy grids in real-world scenarios.” According to the university, a lack of test cases on a realistic scale has been a major hurdle to the adoption of energy sources like solar panels, wind turbines,

including fuel cell and solar panels, a dozen classroom and office buildings and 300 charging stations for electric vehicles. The project will also involve the construction of a new energy storage testing

The goal is to begin testing equipment in 2022, and to make the testbed available to outside research teams and industry leaders by 2025. University officials said decarbonizing the electrical grid, protecting it from cybersecurity attacks and making it more resilient are major drivers for the project. “The ultimate goal of any grid is reliability, and it is a top concern at UC San Diego, as we must constantly power medical centers and major research facilities,” said Gary Matthews, vice chancellor of Resource Management and Planning. “The ability to interact with buildings and change their energy profile intelligently both enhances grid stability and saves a tremendous amount of energy.

The approximately one-half-mile auxiliary lane is expected to improve traffic flow, reduce travel delays, and increase overall safety in the area. Prior to its completion, the heavily trafficked southbound I-5 off-ramp to La Jolla Village Drive often caused congestion on the freeway, posing a safety risk to motorists.

said he was discouraged by the people who chose not to visit Houlihan in her final days, including several of her peers on the council. After several years of chemotherapy treatment, Houlihan died at the age of 63, which Thompson described as “a great loss to this city.”

All creatures, big & small Outside of her life in politics, Thompson said one little known fact about Houlihan is that she was an ardent collector of vinyl records, porcelain figurines and Native American art, clothing and jewelry. “(Native American artwork) was a real passion for her, stemming from her degree in anthropology — she respected the American Indian’s stewardship of the planet.” But Thompson said Houlihan’s greatest passion was for animals of all kinds. If there was an injured animal in need of assistance, Houlihan tried to care for it. Eventually, Houlihan’s love for animals led to a wide assortment of animals living at the couple’s home. “We owned a property that was fairly big in Encinitas, and despite my opposition, it was filled up with all manner of turtles, rats, birds and iguanas,” Thompson said. “They were all disenfranchised — three legs, one eye — they certainly weren’t a fashion accessory. They were the great un-

After her death, the city honored the former councilwoman by naming a 44-

acre recreational area the Maggie Houlihan Memorial Dog Park. Thompson, who wrote the book primarily for Houlihan’s grandson, described the writing process as a “voyage of discovery,” learning new things about partner at various stages in her life. “It was very satisfying and emotional process,”

Thompson said. “It was very rewarding to write because I felt I did my job of representing her life to her grandson. If people read it, and they are entertained by it, inspired by it, laugh and cry, that’s icing on the cake.” Thompson’s book “An Inconvenient Voice: One Woman’s Fight Against Injustice,” is available for purchase on Amazon.

ENCINITAS — Encinitas resident Kathy O’Leary will be honored Nov. 19 by the North County Philanthropic Council (NCPC) as Volunteer of Year with the Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito (ALRSD). NCPC will recognize volunteers from a host of North County Philanthropic groups. O’Leary was chosen by ALRSD because of her 16 years of active involvement. Currently, she leads the membership committee and the grant committee, bringing in more than $20,000 so far this year to the chapter. O’Leary even went the extra mile to solicit additional funding from the Encinitas City Council to give an additional $500 for the Operation School Bell program. She also does the scheduling for the ALRSD thrift shop. Since 2017, ALRSD has each year recognized an individual or individuals who most exemplify the qualities of leadership, dedication, attitude and service to the chapter. While many members have many great qualities, this award goes to the person or persons who rise up above the rest--who would leave the greatest gap in the chapter if they were no longer there.

The summers were packed, but after Labor Day the beaches were returned to the residents. Most everyone knew one another. I think it was sometime in the late ’70s when the drinking of alcohol was first prohibited. This was not in response to friends gathering to watch the sunset over a beer, but to a rowdy few who ruined things for the rest of us. A similar situation occurred when leashless dogs were outlawed — that in response to those who didn’t clean up after them. Beach fires were extinguished at state beaches

OCEANSIDE — Liberal arts degree in hand, MiraCosta College student Ricardo Gomez Lopez decided to put off transferring to a university and instead earn a second associate degree in architectural design that required classes in 3D modeling and prototyping, and computer-aided drafting and design. That decision may have far-reaching consequences — the AutoCAD skills he picked up in those courses provided Gomez Lopez with the proficiency to produce a prototype adapting a low-cost, reusable, 3M respirator into a pathogen-free, COVID-19 protective device. “This is just an incredible story,” said MiraCosta College Design Department Chair Paul Clarke. “This young man who came to MiraCosta as a shy, quiet student has taken the lessons learned at the college and applied them in developing a tool addressing a pressing need during an urgent situation, involving a public health emergency.” “This is all attributable to MiraCosta College. Everything I know about design comes from what I learned at MiraCosta,”

said Gomez Lopez. “I’m grateful for the opportunity.” A native of Oceanside who graduated from El Camino High School, Gomez Lopez, 23, enrolled at MiraCosta College in fall 2015 to complete his general education courses before transferring to a university. He found his career path after taking an architectural history course and resolved to remain at MiraCosta to earn another degree in architectural design, which he wraps up this fall while interning with the MiraCosta College Design Department, before transferring to a baccalaureate program in the field. When Clarke and Design Department Instructional Associate Chris Boehm reached out to see if any students were interested in taking on the respirator adaptor project, Gomez Lopez was in. “This project has been a wonderful opportunity for Ricardo and has the potential to save lives in the future,” said Boehm. The experience has reinforced Gomez Lopez’s conviction that he made the right decision in staying at MiraCosta College.

ho remembers beach parties that lasted well after midnight, huddled against the elements by the embers of a dying fire? If you’re under 40 years old you probably have never drank and eaten with friends while singing and dancing on the beach in the moonlight. Then, dogs barked and friends ran into the ocean, most of us with clothes on. We never felt restricted in any way, but those who came before us told us that we were. They did everything we ever did as well as making dinner over open fires and camping in the sand without payment. It was a time with far fewer people living near our beaches and those who visited there regulated themselves. When I moved to Cardiff in 1970 there was still a great deal of freedom. Campers and converted school buses, including Cheryl East’s “Gospel Ship,” spent weeks in the unpaved lot at Cardiff Reef while Seaside Reef and Swami’s were both dirt lots that flooded whenever it rained for more than an inch. Jim Jenks, Slick Dowdy and their co-conspirators held the Stone Steps Surfing Contest, where it was mandatory to drink a resin bucket of beer before each heat. Winners included the original Mister Pipeline, Butch Van Artsdalen, and more often, Donald Takayama. They prevailed simply by getting to their feet when others could not. Things were still fairly free by 1980 when I held an event to break a world’s record for the most surfers on one wave. Later, a rock band played on the beach. Permits? We didn’t need no stinking permits! Dogs roamed freely and waited in the sand for their humans to return after catching a few waves so they could again chase tennis balls.

teenagers on the beach after dark; think of the liability!” I understand there are risks to people and fire mixing. It is also risky for teenagers to be allowed to do whatever teenagers do on the sand late at night. It’s clear that we who have raised them do not trust them. Sure, there are risks, but the bigger risk is having no place for our children to hang out on a Saturday night. Once cities made our beaches off limits to our children, shouldn’t they open up places where they can hang out and socialize? Sorry if this deteriorated into a nostalgic reminiscence and an angry rant. My purpose in writing this piece is to warn that we risk our freedoms when we abuse them, and don’t consider the possible negatives of legislating fun. We all know that our right to extend our fists ends at or neighbor’s chin, but that does not mean we should still be allowed to unfold our arms to the limit without injuring anyone. May we be considerate in exercising our freedoms and thoughtful when writing our laws. When freedom rings and consideration rules, the people respond with pure stoke.

Epic beer collaboration for San Diego Beer Week taste of Cheers! North County

Ryan Woldt

I

n this time of political turmoil and pandemic restrictions and the bitter cool winds of winter (it dipped below 60 degrees at our place this week), there is still one thing that can bring people together: Beer. Despite the roadblocks 2020 set before them, eight local, independent brewers collaborated to create the Capital of Craft IPA to kick off San Diego Beer Week 2020, which begins with a countywide tapping of the new beer at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6. The breweries, including North County’s Five Suits and Northern Pine, came together at Burgeon Beer in Carlsbad to create a 7.0% West Coast-style IPA for the San Diego Brewers Guild. SDBG describes it as “…tropical and citrusy fruit-forward aromas & flavors with an impeccably clean finish,” which I will vouch for after sampling a tall boy can. Anthony Tallman, co-founder and head brewer at Burgeon Beer, shared a little bit about the experience of creating this collaboration, and why these collaborations matter to the San Diego beer community. The Coast News: How were you able to work around coronavirus this year to create this collaboration, and is there any sense that successfully presenting

CAPITAL OF CRAFT IPA is a collaboration of eight local breweries. Photo by Ryan Woldt

this beer to the community means something different than in years past? Anthony: Like most collaborations the recipe development was done collectively. However, this year it was conducted via Zoom. Each participating brewery was supplied with malt and hop samples from the donating suppliers. Our local White Labs yeast supplier was on the call to discuss yeast options as well. I think the beer community will have a different level of appreciation for this year's iteration of Capital of Craft because of what we’ve all endured during 2020. The SD Brewers Guild and all the collab-

orators had to make a shift in their approach to bring this year’s batch to fruition. TCN: Why is collaboration a valuable asset to you, as brewers, within the SD Beer community? Anthony: Collaborations are all about the experience, learning something new and utilizing all of the amazing brewing minds and talents that we have in the San Diego community. It allows for sharing approaches, techniques and knowledge. Sharing the why and how about your perspective towards making the best beer possible. TCN: Anything else we should know about the collaboration IPA?

Anthony: This year we approached the recipe concept with the desire to utilize a little bit of old school and new hopping techniques, as well as a mix of more OG hop characteristics, but with a new age flare. We combine Idaho 7 as a first wort addition, more Idaho 7 in the whirlpool and then Cashmere, El Dorado and Galaxy in the dry hop. Nick Corona, owner of Five Suits Brewing in Vista, shared, “2020 has seen its fair share of divisiveness and this collaboration effort is in stark contrast to all of that noise. We've been extremely fortunate to partner up with

an incredibly diverse group of industry pros all focused on one very worthy cause — GREAT BEER! As this IPA hits your lips and your taste buds tingle with delight, give pause to consider the glorious goodness that can result when we work together as friends.” James Hodges, head brewer at Chula Vista Brewery, added, “Brewing is a very close-knit community, especially here in San Diego. So being able to get together to brew an awesome beer, and to discuss what everyone has been doing to shift how they operate their respective brewhouses and taprooms, was beneficial on every front.” Well said, Nick and James. During San Diego Beer Week 2020 you’ll be able to give the limited edition Capital of Craft IPA a try or pick up some cans at one of the eight participating breweries — Chula Vista Brewery, Modern Times Beer, Resident Brewing Co., Automatic Brewing Co., South Park Brewing Co., Northern Pine Brewing, Five Suits Brewing Co. and, of course, Burgeon Beer Co. — until it is gone! Be sure to check out the upcoming episode of the Cheers! North County podcast featuring my conversation with Tommy Kreamer, head brewer at Gravity Heights Brewing Co., which comes out Friday, Nov. 6. And don’t forget to follow Cheers! North County on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Got an interesting story about your drinking adventures? Reach out! I want to hear it.

few weeks ago, Frank and I had a great time revisiting Coomber Craft Wines in Oceanside, which happened to be the first place we visited following COVID-19 lockdown in June. This time we were with our travel writers Scott Hagner and Nancine Belfiore. As always it was good to catch up with Owner Skip Coomber. Skip’s goals continue to be the same. When asked, he loves being an upstanding member in the Oceanside beach corridor and to have his guests enjoy Coomber Craft Wines as an experience in a fun and comfortable environment with food delivery from local eateries. Taking a step into the winery is like walking into Cheers. Skip’s connection with his guests is incredible. Each guest is always greeted with a smile and a “Hello, how are you doing?” that launches into a friendly conversation.

Dig into meat pie goodness at Coastal Eatery in Leucadia I have sold pies at local rugby tournaments, farmer markets, and street festivals. Opening the Coastal Eatery is the first brick and mortar place for me.”

I

’ve never been entirely clear what the exact boundaries of Leucadia are, but I’ve always felt that the epicenter is the stretch of Coast Highway where Lou’s Records, Pannikin and Fully Loaded Juicery reside. It’s relatively untouched by the new construction slowly changing that stretch, and still captures that essence of the old school, charming Leucadia that is so cool. That’s where my LTP travels took me recently to Costal Eatery, located next door to Fully Loaded Juicery in a charming indoor/ outdoor space that offers one of my favorites - savory meat pies. Depending on the region of the world you come from, these are called everything from pot pies, pasties, empanadas and tourtiere’s, just to name a few. Coastal Eatery offers up New Zealand Kiwi meat pies and they are amazing along with the rest of their menu that I’ve had a chance to sample. I interviewed co-owner John Merklinger recently for LTP on 101 KGB and have some highlights from that conversation below. LTP: You grew up in Virginia Beach, tell me about that life and any notable food memories you recall from that time in your life. John: Growing up in Virginia Beach (VB), is a lot like the beach cities here in SD. Every day was riding

bikes on the boardwalk, pool hopping, and stopping at small restaurants for a quick bite to eat. Taste Unlimited is a place that has lasted decades and that is where we get our sandwich ideas. We basically brainstormed about what we liked to eat growing up and are bringing those items to the Coastal Eatery. LTP: As an accomplished athlete growing up, your talent resulted in a college scholarship, what was that experience like and how did it shape you? John: Playing sports has taken me around the country, where we sampled the local fare. Playing for the Boston College football team, I had teammates from different backgrounds.

Boston has many diverse neighborhoods with terrific tastes. Each neighborhood would have a certain type of food, like the North end which has amazing oldschool Italian. LTP: Our radio interview revealed your eclectic tastes in music, refresh me on some of the memorable shows you got to see growing up and in Boston? John: VB is a great place for live music and my first show was KC and the Sunshine Band in sixth grade. Luckily, I’ve been able to see the Talking Heads, The Police, Ramones, Violent Femmes, Blondie to name a few. In college, I promoted clubs and managed some college bands. A great memory was bringing Blues Traveler to Boston.

activities together over video chat this year. • Share traditional foods: The sensory memories that good food creates are powerful. In fact, 44 percent of people say the holiday spirit wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t have their traditional holiday des-

LTP: The New Zealand style meat pies are a big part of your menu, describe the story behind them and how you became a fan? John: My interest in a “proper” meat pie, was started by Bert Todd, a family friend and owner of Kiwi Kuisine. Bert brought pies over to the house one day for the guys to try. Meat pies were not on our day to day menu, but they were delicious. Five years ago, my son was starting to play rugby with the Coastal Dragons, the rugby club for Encinitas. The club needed a meat pie supplier and that became me. I have sold pies at local rugby tournaments, farmer markets, and street festivals. Opening the Coastal Eatery is the first

brick and mortar place for me. We are carrying a wide selection of pies, including gluten-free and veggie. For people in the know, we carry a “proper” meat pie! LTP: You offer a wide variety of meat pies, what are a few of your favorites? John: I like all the pies, but my favorite is the steak n’ cheese. The steak, bacon, and blue cheese has a great flavor and the chicken curry has been a local favorite too. LTP: Besides meat pies, you have a solid selection of sandwiches, flatbreads and salads, tell me about those offerings. John: We also carry delicious sandwiches, hot and cold with all the traditional flavors, turkey, roast beef, chicken. We will be serving a hot open-faced sandwich soon, along with a side of mashed potatoes. Our flatbreads have multiple kinds of cheese and veggies, along with delicious sauces. We carry a house salad, Caesar, and a garden salad. All of our ingredients are locally sourced when possible and all products are handmade daily. We also carry Kombucha and a new Kalo drink, which is infused with CBD. LTP: Coastal Eatery is a family affair, who else is involved in the business? John: I started the Coastal Eatery with a

My son Jake is a senior at La Costa Canyon HS and he also helps with working at the Eatery. My daughter Emily, a freshman at UC IRVINE, has helped with artwork and design. Craig’s wife, Angela, helped out with setting up our corporation and the plan submission to the health dept. It has taken the efforts of both families to put the Coastal Eatery together! LTP: How would you describe your fabulous location? John: This point has to do with the “vibe” of our little place. We have had many people come in and just hang out. Either to have a cup of coffee, watch football or rugby, do some work for their job. They have all said, it just makes them feel comfortable to be there. We like that and think it has something to do with the community that we are located in. A few have commented on the “positive energy” they feel at the Eatery. Find Coastal Eatery at 466 N.

Being a musician himself, Skip said that he is “committed to helping local artists survive the pandemic and what better way to do this than nightly live music.” This visit we were blown away by Kimmi Bitter’s pipes and chops. She prides herself on being old school with music integrity inspired by Patsy Kline and Linda Ronstadt. The set included her

own music along with covers from Carly Simon, Johnny Cash, The Judds, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, and more. Kimmi, along with guitarist Willis and bass cellist Ben, typically perform on Thursday evenings. Be sure to make a reservation at 760-2318022. Also, you can check out Kimmi at kimmibitter. com along with social media and Spotify. It was easy to enjoy the music alongside Skip’s delicious wines, which included the 2013 Signature Collection Santa Ynez, Cabernet Sauvignon ($57) and paired nicely with the Benito’s Brick Oven Classic pizza topped with pepperoni, portobello mushrooms and onions.

Black Rail Kitchen + Bar thrives with outdoor dining

This little story begins with two successful family-driven restaurants sailing along in pre-COVID years in the same neighborhood shopping center in La Costa/Carlsbad. Beach Plum and Tin Leaf built up a reliable “fast-casual” in and out menu business for their owners, who happened to live in the neighborhood and could shop in the center. But their passion was for “something fresh and new.” The result was the third restaurant in the same center, Black Rail Kitchen + Bar, an upscale, beautifully appointed din-

Odd Files Seasonal Crime Nathan Garisto, 26, of Largo, Florida, was arrested on Oct. 19 on a domestic battery charge. The Smoking Gun reported that Garisto was “heavily intoxicated while engaged in a verbal argument with his girlfriend,” according to police. He refused to leave after his girlfriend asked him to, instead throwing “a pumpkin and all insides of the pumpkin at the subject.” Garisto maintains he threw the pumpkin at the door, not at the girlfriend. He was released on bond and ordered to have no contact with the victim. [The Smoking Gun, 10/20/2020] Sweet Love Sugar Good, 49, who manages a Dunkin’ Donuts store in Edmond, Oklahoma, knew a good man when she saw one ... every morning at 7:15 as he collected his sausage, egg and cheese croissant at her drive-thru. After a year of friendly commercial exchanges, The New York Times reported, Good finally got up the nerve to hand John Thompson, 45, her business card along with his food and coffee. Two years later, on Oct. 13, Good and Thompson tied the knot at the place that brought them together: the Dunkin’ drive-thru. “We knew we wanted to share it with the Dunkin’ family,” Good said. She stood at her spot in the window and Thompson drove up in his red truck, where former pastor Colby Taylor was waiting for them. Taylor kept the ceremony short, as other customers were lined up behind Thompson, but at the end, Good came outside and Thompson got out of his truck for their first kiss as regulars, friends and family cheered them on. “Our story wasn’t glamour,” Good said, “but it was true romance.” [New York Times, 10/23/2020] Bright Idea In Littleton, New Hampshire, a Hillsborough County grand jury filed indictments against Lisa Landon, 33, in early October, the Union Leader reported.

To avoid going to jail, Landon impersonated a prosecutor, using the court’s electronic system to file fake documents dropping the charges against her. A state forensic officer noticed last November that the charges were dropped and wondered if a scheduled competency evaluation on Landon should proceed, which tipped off court officials. While she was at it, Landon allegedly filed an order on behalf of a relative to halt guardianship proceedings involving Landon’s child. She’s been charged with one count of false impersonation and six counts of falsifying physical evidence. [Union Leader, 10/26/2020]

Melinda Lynn Guerrero, 33, was also charged with providing a false name to law enforcement after she repeatedly said her name was “My butt just farted.” Officers were familiar with Guerrero from a series of arrests over several years, and her last name is tattooed on her back, so ... They noted she may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. [The Smoking Gun, 10/16/2020] The Continuing Crisis Sure, COVID-19 has been tough on human beings. But don’t discount the effect the virus has had on our aquatic friends. Take Mikko, a 3-foot-long grouper who lives at the Sea Life Helsinki Sea Lab ocean laboratory, where he had to be isolated because he kept eating his tankmates. When the aquarium closed because of the pandemic, Mikko appeared depressed, becoming “more still and distant than usual,” his caretakers told Live Science. “To cheer him up ... the caretakers and other staff had lunch and coffee breaks by his tank.” They also had a TV to keep him company, but on Oct. 12, Mikko got the ultimate pick-me-up: a 16th birthday party featuring a salmon “cake.” Aquarium representatives said he enjoyed the party.

But one village shopkeeper explained: “If we could have voted against all we would have done, but we had the option to vote for Marina, so we did. I think she’ll cope. The whole village will help.” Loktev is sporting a stiff upper lip: “I’m not upset. People voted for her, so let her do her job.” [BBC, 9/29/2020] Family Values On Oct. 8, as an Advent Health worker checked visitors’ temperatures at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, she noticed a woman removing something from the stroller she was pushing and place it in the bushes outside the entrance to the park. The woman then proceeded through the checkpoint and into the park. The witness alerted authorities, who found a purse and, inside, a handgun. The woman, Marcia Temple of Georgia, returned to the spot and told the officer the purse was hers, but threw her 6-yearold son under the bus: “I had told my son to hold it for me and stand right here while I go get my brother. He put it down, and messed with the plants and I put them back, but I didn’t know he put it down and I didn’t know he left it over here.” Unfortunately for Temple, security cameras captured her planting the purse in the bushes, ClickOrlando.com reported. Orange County deputies said the firearm was fully loaded, and Temple did not have a concealed weapons permit for either Florida or Georgia. She was charged with carrying a concealed

[ClickOrlando. com, 10/30/2020] Least Neighborly Neighbor Ryan Ferry and his wife moved into their Clearwater, Florida, home with great expectations about living in a neighborhood they loved. But their next-door neighbor, Ken Nielsen, had other plans. “He’s threatened to shoot me in the face numerous times,” Ferry told WFLA. “My wife can’t go out back and sunbathe because he will pull up a chair and take pictures of her.” The final straw came on Oct. 24, when Ferry hung lights on his side of their shared fence for a birthday party that evening. Nielsen called police, who asked Ferry to remove the lights. But he called 911 again, telling the operator, “I’ve got a ton of ... weapons. I got ... hand grenades. I’ll blow them out of the ... ground.” Ferry can take comfort in the fact that it’s not personal: Nielsen assaulted another neighbor in 2016 for power washing while he was trying to watch the Olympics.

REGION — To safely manage an expected increase in travelers on the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner route around the Thanksgiving holiday, reservations will be required on trains that travel between San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. Available seats may sell out, so customers are encouraged to plan ahead and book early. A reservation will be required to travel Nov. 23 through Nov. 30, to help manage capacity and allow customers to distance themselves from each other onboard. Additionally, the Rail 2 Rail program will be suspended during this period — monthly Metrolink and Coaster passes will not be accepted onboard Pacific Surfliner trains on these dates.

Historic Paxton adobe house in Escondido to be demolished

WOMEN’S FILM FEST

SALE AT OFF TRACK GALLERY

By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Throughout October, residents and businesses across town decked out their front yards and store windows to ring in the fall season. MainStreet Oceanside, together with the Oceanside Coastal Neighborhood Association (OCNA) and the Friends of Oceanside Dia de los Muertos (FOODDLM), held its Second Annual Scarecrow and the first Dia de los Muertos decorating contests last month. The goal of the two contests was to bring a “fun festive” activity to the homes of residents and businesses as social distancing guidelines remain in place. The contest entries were judged on four major criteria including originality, expressiveness, costume design and environmental context. Participants could choose their own themes for their decorations. Oceanside High School student Ginger Johnson was a Scarecrow contest judge who took photos of the various scarecrows posted around the city. According to Johnson, “it was a gratifying experience photographing the scarecrows contest and many of them deserve to win the bragging rights for 2020.” This year would have

been the 20th anniversary for the Dia de los Muertos Festival in Oceanside, but unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers to cancel the event. “We were very excited to partner with MainStreet Oceanside and do a Dia de los Muertos decorating contest this year, especially since we were unable to have our festival downtown due to the pandemic,” said FOODDLM Board President Cathy Nykiel in a

statement. Claudia Troisi, an OCNA board member, noted the organization’s excitement over an increase in participation in the decorating contest from last year. “Thanks to MainStreet for participating with us this year along with Oceanside Museum of Art and Oceanside High School,” Troisi stated. Scarecrow decorating contest business winners include Coastal Music Stu-

dios in first place followed by The Miller’s Table in second and Breakwater Community Church in third. The Dia de los Muertos decorating contest business winners placed Gypsy Soul Dreaming in first, The Miller’s Table in second again and Fat Joe’s in third.

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido City Council voted on Oct. 21 to move forward with the demolition of the historic Paxton adobe house, most recently known as Hacienda de Vega restaurant, in order to develop a 42-unit condominium at the site. The 74-year-old adobe building at 2608 S. Escondido Blvd. began as a model home and office for the nearby Longview Acres subdivision of 25 adobes before serving as the home of several different popular Mexican restaurants over the years, the most recent one closing in 2017. The building is also known for its signature adobe style architecture and its association with significant people, such as Charles Paxton. After serving as a model home, the property became a nursery operated by landscape architect Gene Peregov. Later, in 1962, it was converted into a restaurant owned by Patrick Brillo Osorio and later, the Cueva family. At the meeting, the council unanimously voted to allow Kitchell Development Co. to build 42 condos on a 1.75-acre site that includes the 1946 adobe structure despite a number of public comments objecting to the motion. Back in July, the Escondido Historic Preservation Commission reviewed the

proposal and voted 2-2 to save the building (one commissioner was recused and two others were not present), nonetheless, a tie vote is an effective denial of the motion. The proposal then went to the city’s Planning Commission, which approved the demolition permit in September. Bruce Coons, executive director of Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO), said in a public comment that they want the matter sent back to the Historic Preservation Commission for a second vote as well as a full environmental impact report, noting the potential for legal challenge by SOHO if the council fails to do so. “SOHO continues to find the Paxton adobe a unique and significant resource, which is intact and eligible for the California Register of Historical Resources,” Coons said. “This staff report does not appear to understand the contextual significance of the specific resource with regards to its various periods of significance, evolutions of use and associations with significant people to Escondido’s history.” Councilmembers at the meeting expressed their sadness at having to demolish the historic building, but agreed that it would be necessary to get closer to meeting the city’s housing needs.

A black olive tree bears fruit near a coffee shop in Carlsbad derson’s also carries avocado, passionflower, berries and a wide selection of vegetables, flowers, trees and perennials, along with hardscape, soil, pottery and fountains. They are located at 400 La Costa Ave., in Encinitas; phone 760753-3153.

I

t all started with an olive tree. While sitting at Baba Coffee, my favorite coffee shop on State Street in Carlsbad, I noticed black stains on the sidewalk. On further inspection, I realized that the 20-foot tree in front of me was indeed an olive and was filled with ripe black fruit. Owner Rob Pastor and I discussed the potential of the three fruiting trees that decorated the seating area of Baba Coffee and Carruth Cellars, and enlisted the help of Chris Bany, Carlsbad landscape designer. Bany’s flower and vegetable gardens have beautified the front and side yards of numerous commercial sites on State Street, and he was happy to take on the task of harvesting. The olive harvest became a communal event, much like a grape harvest in wine country, and netted over five pounds of olives. Now, the challenge will be to brine the black fruit for a few months, just in time to serve with Baba Coffee’s hand-crafted coffee, tea, nutritional juices,

freshly baked pastry and sandwiches. Baba Coffee is located at 2727 State Street; for information, call 760-9940666. Chris’s gardens are on Instagram @californiafoodscapes, and can be reached at 760-421-9855.

Grow fruit in your yard Although full-grown olive trees are high maintenance, I wanted to share with my fellow gardeners the myriad possibilities of growing citrus in North County, which is fairly trouble-free.

My horticultural colleagues at Anderson’s La Costa Nursery gave me a tour of the multitude of citrus trees available for planting during the fall season. Stephen Froess explained, “The semi-dwarf varieties keep the plant more compact and at a reasonable size that allows for year-round fruit production. There is a misconception regarding the amount of water that citrus trees require. When grown in large containers, the trees can dry out between waterings,

but be certain to check on a weekly basis.” Stephen has a helpful video on the https://www. andersonslacostanursery. com/ website, and the staff is always available to answer questions about transplanting the citrus trees. “After purchasing a 10- or 15-gallon tree, the gardener should transplant into a container that is up to twice the original pot size. We use a combination of E.B. Stone Organic Mix and Palm and Citrus Soil Mix, and worm castings. Once transplanted, the tree can

remain as is for years, or re-planted in the ground.”

Free information Since I always suffer from too much information and too little space, I would recommend that all gardeners check out the UC San Diego Master Gardener website at https:// ucanr.edu/sites/sdmastergardeners/. There, you can check out USDA Hardiness Zones, free garden classes and a comprehensive list of the 15 types of fruit that can be grown in the North County area.
