Local manufacturers open their doors By Ellen Wright

REGION — More than 17.4 million Americans work in manufacturing with an average annual salary of $77,000, yet “82 percent of manufacturers report a moderate or serious shortage in skilled production workers,” according to a report published by the Manufacturing Extension Partnership. In an effort to raise awareness of the need for skilled laborers, over 1,600 manufacturing plants across America opened their doors for tours Oct. 3.

“Today’s science, technology, engineering, and math graduates will power the next chapter of American production and innovation, and harnessing their potential is an economic imperative. When our manufacturing base is strong, our entire economy is strong,” President Barack Obama said in a proclamation declaring Oct. 3 National Manufacturing Day.

iPad donations are a game changer for Vista students By Promise Yee

VISTA — Vista Innovation and Design Academy (VIDA) and Rancho Minerva Middle School were awarded iPads and 5G cellular connectivity for every student as two of eight national recipients of the Verizon/Digital Promise grant. VIDA Principal Eric Chagala said the iPads are a game changer for the school’s 600-plus students. The computer tablets and Internet connectivity will be available to students 24/7 to research, brainstorm and communicate with teachers. Chagala said Vista Unified School District has invested in providing superior WiFi access to every classroom.

E SC ON DI D O —T he three mayoral candidates shared their views on city issues at the second forum of election season held by the First United Methodist Church Sept. 30. The candidates, current Mayor Sam Abed, Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz and Stephen Siaw, were mostly civil but at times slightly hostile. Diaz and Abed showed animosity when discussing issues including the Latino population and the city’s budget, while Siaw remained rather vague and positioned himself as a “regular guy.” When asked about the Latino population in Escondido, Mayor Abed said he was proud to be endorsed by the Latino American Political Association (LAPA) calling their support a landslide victory. “I want economic prosperity for all in Escondido regardless of their immigration status,” Abed said as to why he got the endorsement. “’LAPA who?’ is what I say,” Diaz retorted. “A landslide from 23 people from one organization that I had never heard of is not a full endorsement,” Diaz said. She went on to say that she believes she’s a better representative of the Latino population because she speaks Spanish. Siaw said the Latino population needs better representation in local government and that the youth should be targeted to ensure they stay in school. Another point of contention between Diaz and Abed was the city’s budget. Abed said before he was elected mayor, the city had $16 million in

deficit spending and now there is a surplus of $8 million and an improved bond rating. Diaz said Abed shouldn’t be taking the credit. “We have a term of endearment for some of the numbers you’ve heard this evening from our Mayor, called ‘smath,’ Sam’s math,” Diaz said, “because a lot of what’s been happening and a lot of the things he took credit for, quite frankly, are happening without the city’s direct involvement. Investment goes wherever there’s a return.” All three candidates support Proposition E, which, if passed, would allow the Escondido Union School District to issue $182 million in bonds for infrastructure, technology and safety improvements to the city’s 23 schools. The new superintendent, Luis Ibarra, spoke in favor of the proposition alongside Michael Taylor, assistant superintendent of business services. Nobody spoke against the bond measure. Taylor said it would cost the average Escondido citizen $72 a year in assessed value taxes. If passed, construction would begin in the summer of 2015, according to Taylor. Proposition G, which allows voters to decide whether or not the city will move to a charter city, was also debated. Don Greene, president of the Escondido Democratic Club spoke against Prop G and Mayor Abed spoke in favor of it, in a last minute surprise. Greene argued that a general charter on its face isn’t a bad thing but the actual written charter TURN TO DEBATE ON 18

Firefighting helicopter coming to North County EIR for development

expected at year’s end

By Tony Cagala

REGION — With the ongoing drought extending further into the year, the fuel moisture in the North County is at its lowest level seen since the recording of fuel moistures have begun, explained Mike Gibbs, deputy fire chief of the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District. “And that’s representative throughout the state,” he said. Until there’s any significant rain to bring those moisture levels up, Gibbs said we are in a position to have large fires all the way until that point in time. Staring at the high-risk potential for more wildfires this year, there is a bit of good news coming to fire agencies in the North County. Earlier this week, SDG&E and the Olivenhain Municipal Water District announced that a Type II firefighting helicopter will be staged at the District’s David C. McCollom Water Treatment Plant in the Harmony Grove area during red flag warning days. The basis for the additional helicopter was prompted by the wildfires the North County experienced earlier this May, explained Stephanie Donovan, a spokeswoman for SDG&E. Donovan said this is an SDG&E-supported effort to improve overall regional preparedness. “It’s not going to cost the fire agencies or the various communities,” she said. Gibbs said that whenever aerial support arrives on scene and starts taking action by putting water on the fire, there’s a direct impact. “Aerial support helps on every fire, irregardless of terrain. The work that the air tankers do and that the helicopters do directly support the actions that are taking place on the ground on any type of vegetation

Donovan added that SDG&E will reevaluate at the end of the year whether providing these aircraft for firefighting purposes is something they’ll be able to continue to do. In September, SDG&E also contracted TURN TO HELICOPTER ON 18

SAN MARCOS — A comprehensive study on the environmental impacts of a controversial residential development in North San Marcos is expected to be released by year’s end, city officials and representatives of the project developer said Wednesday night. City staff and the developer of the San Marcos Highlands project, a proposed 189-home development on 262 acres northwest of Palomar College, held a public workshop to get more feedback from residents about the project’s current iteration, which is scaled down significantly from previous versions. “We’re looking for the report to hit the streets soon,” Jim Simmons, a principal with the San Marcos-based developer, Consultants Collaborative, said to the audience. “We have looked at the impacts and listened to your concerns and we believe you will be satisfied with how the new report addresses the impacts to your community.” The city is in the process of completing an environmental impact report for the project, nearly a year after city staff and the developer indefinitely shelved the project due

to a request for a more updated and thorough environmental study. Staff was originally relying on a mitigated negative declaration, which is a more cursory environmental document that had been last updated in the mid-2000s. City officials previously said that a request by the regional agency that handles annexation requests — which the project requires — for a new environmental report prompted the delay. The Local Agency Formation Commission is involved with the project because it requires the annexation of about 121 acres from the county into the city limits. Simmons and his representatives said they have addressed the community’s previous concerns about the project by decreasing the number of homes, increasing the amount of park space and the size of a habitat linkage and updating the environmental studies, including those that study noise, air quality and impacts to local wildlife. About 20 people, many who live in the adjacent Santa Fe Hills community or in unincorporated county land north of the project along Buena Creek Road, attended the event.

Vista woman, 91, fights back against PETA By Aaron Burgin

REGION — The silver-haired woman tightly clutched the charcoal-colored chinchilla as it furrowed into her blouse. At one time, Lurlie Adams owned more than 1,000 of the animals, and sold them to people as pets. Now, “Loverboy,” was all that the 91-year-old woman had left, after hundreds of volunteers from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the San Diego Humane Society hauled off the animals from her Adams Valley View Chinchilla Ranch in Vista in August. PETA officials said the animals were rescued from cruel conditions at Adams’ ranch, where they said chinchillas who weren’t sold as pets were electrocuted, skinned and pelts sold. This week, Adams announced she was fighting back, filing a $2 million defamation lawsuit against PETA and “Simpsons’” co-creator Sam Simon, who was involved with the so-called rescue effort.

“They have destroyed my good name,” Adams said. “I want people to know that I am a good person and was never cruel to the animals.” The lawsuit alleges the agency falsely accused her of breeding those chinchilla’s for animal pelts, splicing photos and videos from other chinchilla farms in their so-called investigation to make the point. Adams’ attorney said that the great grandmother had been raising chinchillas and selling them as pets for 30 years. “In fact, Ms. Adams is a decent and kind woman who lovingly took care of her and her customers’ chinchillas for decades, who was trampled and abused by the malicous, selfish, misplaced animal rights and fund-raising agendas of PETA,” attorney Michael Curran wrote in a news statement. “This press release is being generated at the request of our client ... to restore her good Encinitas attorney Michael Curran, left, with his client Lurlie Adams, who is fighting name and reputation earned over back against PETA after being accused of animal cruelty on her chinchilla ranch in a 90-year lifetime which was maNorth County.

by (PETA) in seeking to further their own self-serving cause and fundraising objectives.” The lawsuit states that Adams sold the chinchillas and her business in a $50,000 “straw man” contract to Sam Simon, a former TV producer and PETA supporter, who then, along with PETA, falsely accused Adams of torture, abuse and animal cruelty and then orchestrated a rescue effort based on the false accusations. PETA turned the animals over local humane societies and shelters, where, the lawsuit alleges, many of the animals died due to extreme heat or were euthanized. Much of the news release and lawsuit casts a harsh light on PETA’s rescue efforts, which Curran says actually leads to more animals dying than being rescued.

Hearing for shelter re-scheduled By Ellen Wright

E S C ON D I D O —T he public hearing on the proposed unaccompanied youth shelter has been rescheduled for Oct. 15 after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) asked for an extension. The hearing will take place at the regularly scheduled City Council meeting in City Hall at 4:30 p.m. The public hearing was originally scheduled for Sept. 10 but officials from the ACLU asked for more time. According to a news release on the city’s website, officials from the ACLU asked that the meeting to be postponed so they could submit additional materials and provide city officials

Design flaws addressed at Maple Street Plaza By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — Maple Street Plaza is undergoing construction until Nov. 17 to address design flaws. Traffic will be affected on Grand Avenue for short periods of time. The Schmidt Design Group Inc., Kimley-Horn and Associates and Aquatic Design Group designed the plaza and, according to Julie Procopoio, assistant director of public works, the designers notice the problems immediately. The consultants will pay $69,700 to fix the design errors, Procopio said. Construction workers will replace broken concrete pavers and work on pedestrian access ramps, according to Procopio. The fountain and splash pad area are also undergoing maintenance.

The fountain will be turned off for 30 days during construction. “We’re finding that there was some spillover on the fountain. The grate wasn’t catching all the water so we’re adding another capture point so that we can capture all of the water and re-circulate it,” Procopio said. The plaza will still be accessible to pedestrians and the alley between Escondido Boulevard and Broadway will remain open during construction. Cars will not be allowed access between Grand Avenue and the alley to the north for short periods of time. The specific dates of closure depend on how quickly construction goes. “It’s a new concept to have this shared pedestrian vehicle space,” Procopio

said. There’s a risk construction will last longer if it rains or if there are other unforeseen complications, Procopio said, but it should

be done by the end of November at the latest. The plaza is still open for pedestrian use but designated areas are blocked off to ensure safety.

time for review. The Planning Commission denied the proposed shelter in June after a large public outcry was heard. The shelter was proposed by a nonprofit organization, Southwest Key. The 96-bed facility would have been open in a vacant nursing home located on Avenida del Diablo. The ACLU is appealing the Planning Commission’s denial, because the effects of the shelter would be indistinguishable from the nursing home, according to David Loy, legal director of the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties. The issue has gained national attention and sparked tensions in the city.

Why Six Californias failed: It’s a lousy idea CALIFORNIA FOCUS BY THOMAS D. ELIAS There is little doubt about why the putative “Six Californias” ballot initiative that Silicon Valley billionaire Tim Draper hoped to put on the 2016 ballot failed: It was and is a terrible idea. This measure appeared to be a shoo-in to make the next ballot for which it was eligible. Draper had almost limitless funds and put petition circulators at thousands of storefront doorways in the present California. The going rate paid to circulators can run upwards of $5 per valid signature. Draper put $5.2 million behind his measure to fracture the nation’s largest existing state. And yet, it failed miserably. It was the worst failure in the modern era for any proposed citizen initiative with respectable financial support. Draper needed 807,615 valid voter signatures to get his measure onto the ballot. He submitted more than 1 million in June, and it became almost a foregone conclusion that his measure would qualify. But when county election officials around the state reviewed signatures at random to see how many were valid, they concluded that only about 750,000 were really those of registered voters, the rest coming mostly from non-registered folks stopped by the circulators who signed petitions just to end the pestering. If the reviewers’ projection had come within 15,000 of the required number, Draper would have gotten an automatic canvass of all signatures. But that won’t happen now. Why did the entrepreneur fall short? The best guess here is that many

annoyed store customers accosted by circulators had seen or read a little about the idea and realized it was no good. So — in a resounding confirmation of the merits of the initiative process — many refused to sign. And the idea really does — did — stink. Imagine for a moment what the bidding for Tesla Motors’ new lithium ion “gigafactory” might have been like if six Californias and not just one had been involved in the competition. As it is,

Anyone who thinks it’s tough to get water policy agreements from one Legislature would suddenly be faced with six.

Nevada will pay a bribe of about $1.35 billion for the privilege of hosting this facility near Reno. What might the proposed state of Central California, home to the existing California’s proposed location in Stockton, have offered? If six Californias had become reality, Central California would have begun as America’s poorest state. Had its new officials topped Nevada’s bid and offered more than the $78,000 the Silver State will pay for each new job Tesla creates or spawns, it would be even poorer. What might West California, home to Los Angeles, have bid? Or the desert-dominated South California? That’s just one example of how each of these regions becoming a separate state could have hurt them all. The reality is that Draper’s plan to fragment California — and he says he’s not giving up — is one of the goofiest, dopiest ideas ever seen in a state known

for nutty schemes. Draper says he’s motivated by a belief that the existing California is “ungovernable.” But he wants to create six sets of bureaucracies where now there is one. They wouldn’t necessarily have identical regulations, and there’s no guarantee any or all would enjoy the property tax protections of the existing Proposition 13. Or the clean drinking water assured under Proposition 65. Or the low auto insurance rates ensured by Proposition 108. Each new state would set its own rules, without regard to the others. So what could be built in the Los Angeles County city of Pomona might not be legal in nearby Chino, in San Bernardino County, for just one example. There would also be the state of Jefferson, comprising a slew of counties in California’s northernmost region. This one would not have even one University of California campus, which could leave residents paying $36,000 a year in tuition if they attend a UC. Anyone who thinks it’s tough to get water policy agreements from one Legislature would suddenly be faced with six. Good luck. How would any of this make the land area that’s now California easier to governable? But Californians won’t be facing these potential problems and a lot of others anytime soon, because many had the good sense not to sign. Which is itself a sign that despite its many critics, the initiative system actually can work very well.

RE: Recycled water (In response to Coast News Inland Edition article by Ellen Wright, Recycled water project underway, Vol. 28, Sept. 26, 2014, page 1). Escondido Water Director Mr. McKinney expressed concern about the sodium content of water that adversely affects avocado trees. Neither sodium nor fluoride belongs in fresh pristine drinking water. But since 2005, sodium fluoride has been added into Escondido water and since 2007 into Metropolitan Water. He has written his belief that fluoride is a “food” but admitted that the fluorosilicic acid source for fluoride needs to be neutralized with sodium hydroxide. This contributes to the total sodium content that became harmful to the trees in the first place. He now wants to use wastewater run through reverse osmosis for agriculture to help solve the problem. RO does remove fluoride and sodium, but is he planning to re-fluoridate the water a second time, after it’s de-fluoridated with RO, because he believes fluoride is a food? Or is he beginning to understand that fluoride is a toxic calcium chelator and that the sodium contributes to harming avocados? He also plans to use RO wastewater for drinking water. The safety of such water of course is entirely dependent on the source of waste used as starting material, because RO does not remove all chemical contaminants. For example, RO is useless at removing tritium water, herbicides, and many small organic molecules.

Citracado Pkwy expansion one step closer By Ellen Wright

E S C O N D I D O —T h e city received approval from the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) to annex two parcels of land near Harmony Grove Oct. 6. The annexation of the land allows the city to move forward with the Citracado Parkway Extension between Harmony Grove Village Parkway and Andreasen Drive. The proposed project cuts over the Escondido Creek so a bridge will be needed. “The approval of the annexation by LAFCO will allow the city to finalize design plans, since the entire alignment (of the parkway) will now be within Escondido’s jurisdiction,” Julie Procopio, assistant director of Public Works/Engineering said. The parcels combined are about 30 acres and were a part of the County of San Diego, the Harmony Grove Volunteer Fire Protection Department and San Marcos Fire Protection District. The city still lacks funding to complete the extension but Procopio said the city plans on reapplying for funding from the Economic Development Administration in spring 2015. While the city is waiting to apply for funding for the Citracado Expansion, officials will finalize design plans, work on environmental permitting and begin right of way acquisition, according to Procopio. Citracado Parkway is a notoriously confusing road in southern Escondido that was meant to serve as a major connector road between

state Route 78 near the Nordahl exit in San Marcos with Interstate 15 in Escondido. The extension project’s Environmental Impact Report was completed in 2012 although the construction is dependent on funding, which the city is still working to secure. The extension will provide a direct link to planned developments like the Escondido Research and Technology Center and the Nordahl Road Sprinter Transit Station. It will also cut down on emergency response times to the Palomar Medical Center West because ambulances will no longer need to take a long circuitous route from the south. Some groups have voiced their concerns about the annexation, including the San Dieguito Planning Group, which represents residents in Harmony Grove, the residential community surrounding the annexed lands. “The concern was that there be some sort of physical buffer between where the eventual industrial park development (goes) and where the rural residential community starts,” Douglas Dill, vice-chair of the San Dieguito Planning Group said. At the LAFCO meeting Oct. 6, Mayor Sam Abed said the group’s concerns would be addressed further down the line. “To develop a master plan prior to the annexation is premature,” Abed said. The public will have the opportunity to voice their concerns as each individual project goes through the approval process.

s our venues for eating and drinking in North County continue to proliferate, it’s becoming even easier to get stuck in our local bubble. Heck, I don’t even have to leave Leucadia anymore to experience a nice variety of culinary options. And as bubbles go, the North County coastal one is not a bad one to be stuck in. That said, there are parts of San Diego that are worth exploring and I’ve discovered one area in particular that is worth making the short drive south to. It’s the Shelter Island region and when I was down there about a month ago at Fathom Bistro Bait & Tackle I noticed a beautiful resort called Kona Kai Resort & Marina. I needed to know more. After a little digging I found out Kona Kai had just undergone a major renovation and had a new chef and restaurant called Vessel. I booked a room and a dinner reservation for a Saturday night and made the easy drive down in about 25 minutes. The first thing I noticed was that the whole resort had an island feel to it. The marina holds some of the nicest and largest yachts around and the resort sits on the water with it’s own private beach, nice size pool, and all kinds of fun activities for families and couples. The rooms have all been completely renovated and while air conditioning may not be needed most of the year at Kona Kai, I went on one of our recent very hot weekends and it was nice that they had it.

on the marina side as the views are much better. Besides the epic location and all the nice amenities, I was really looking forward to trying the new restaurant at Kona Kai. Vessel offers New American cuisine expertly prepared by Executive Chef Roy Hendrickson, served in a casual, chic atmosphere. Vessel re-opened on July 4, 2014, fresh off of a transformation that included the addition of a 360-degree bar at its center and video wall showcasing local landscapes, the coastal fare created by Chef Hendrickson incorporates local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, taking traditional delicacies and giving them a flavorful twist. We started off with some really good New England clam chowder that was full of chunky pieces of clams and potatoes. A unique kale Caesar salad was a fun twist on the traditional version and the sardine was a nice authentic touch. Chef Hendrickson sent out a sample of the nightly special, which was a Japanese Hamachi that was melt-in-your-mouth good. I’m fairly certain I now know the difference between Japanese Hamachi, Yellowtail as it’s called here, and the local variety that is caught off of San Diego.

Both are delicious but the Japanese variety has a higher fat content, giving it that buttery texture that is oh-so-good. Chef Hendrickson gave a slight sear around the edge but the rest was pure raw fish goodness. Geez, I need to get me some more of that, as it was really amazing. For our main courses we went with the linguine Bolognese that was a huge portion of pasta goodness that I knew was going to be as good or better as a left-

over cold the next morning and indeed it was. Our second entrée pick was the New York steak frites with arugula and chimichurri. It was cooked a perfect medium rare with a nice charred crust over a bed of handcut fries. This is truly one of my favorite dishes ever and Chef Hendrickson nailed it. There was hardly room for dessert after those two hearty entrees TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 18

When the mountain is out With luck and timing, this is the view of Mount McKinley (Denali) that visitors see as they approach the town of Talkeetna, a two-and-a-half hour drive north of Anchorage. At 20,320 feet, the mountain is the highest peak in North America. At this point on the road, visitors are actually closer to the mountain than at the entrance to Denali National Park, another 150 miles north of Talkeetna. Photos by Jerry Ondash

e are driving north on the Talkeetna Spur when we come over a gentle slope and there it is — a snow-shrouded Mount McKinley, rising regally to 20,320 feet and dwarfing the surrounding peaks. It’s a vision you can’t see from a cruise ship, and my cousin, Panu Lucier, who is at the wheel, can’t pull over fast enough. “The mountain is out!” she exclaims with enthusiasm that belies the fact that she has lived in Alaska all her life. It’s a phrase not heard that often because

Mount McKinley, or Denali as the locals call it, is usually hidden by clouds. “It’s so big that it has its own weather system,” says Panu’s partner, Mark Ransom. In planning our 12-day stay in South Central Alaska, Mount McKinley was not on the itinerary. We just didn’t expect to get this lucky, but here it is: the view of a lifetime. After 20 minutes, I’m still reluctant to leave it, but we must continue to Talkeetna (population 800-something). A two-anda-half-hour drive north, the town is a popular weekend destination for Anchorage residents and the halfway point between Anchorage and Denali National Park. The picturesque downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and many say it’s the town after which the 1990s television

Panu Lucier of Anchorage visits her first home in Talkeetna, Alaska. Her father, Charles Lucier, was a teacher in this one-room schoolhouse in the mid-1950s, and her family lived in the apartment above. Today the schoolhouse is the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum and features artifacts from pre-statehood days.

series “Northern Exposure” was modeled. For Panu and me, however, Talkeetna represents

a bit of family history (our fathers were first cousins). Panu’s father, Charles Lucier, was the only teacher in

OCT. 10, 2014 the town’s one-room schoolhouse for a while during the mid-1950s. He and her mother, Grace, a Native Alaskan from a tiny Inupiaq settlement on the Bering Sea, lived in the apartment above the school room. It was Panu’s first home. Charles eventually decided to leave because of “safety concerns,” according to records. The school sits next to the old village airstrip, and with no barrier between the two, he was afraid for both his daughter and the students. Today, the apartment can be rented by the day through the historic Talkeetna Roadhouse (built in 1917), a half-block away. The owner was kind enough to let us into the apartment, and we try to imagine Panu’s family living there. The former classroom below now serves as the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum, and a report card signed by Panu’s father appears on the museum’s sign outside. (Some weeks later, on a return visit, Panu met the then-first grade student whose name appears on the card.) We wander through the museum’s impressive collection of artifacts and documents from Alaska’s pre-statehood days, trying to grasp what it was like to live with now creature comforts or communication in sub-zero temperatures. But it’s summer now and we are enjoying every last minute the 20 hours of sunshine. Beside the tall trees and colorful buildings, Talkeetna owes some of its beauty to the confluence of

three nearby rivers — the Susitna, Chulitna and Talkeetna. The town rose in 1919 when the railroad arrived. It wasn’t until 1964 that it was possible to drive there; this was thanks to the Talkeetna Spur — a 14-mile stretch of pavement branching off the main highway that deadends at the town. It brings tourists and adventurers — many on motorcycles — to Talkeetna’s restaurants, bars and patios, which overflow on summer weekends. The sport of people-watching reigns supreme here. It’s also a place where you should expect the unexpected — like the Mexican family selling jalapeño peanut brittle from a makeshift stand at the river’s edge; artists who craft jewelry from porcupine quills or moose droppings; wine from southern Alaska vineyards; and the occasional moose who hangs by the roadside to watch all the action. Later, we back-track to the main highway and drive north for 15 minutes to our bed-and-breakfast at Trapper Creek (population 400plus, not counting the unknown numbers “living off the grid.”) We drop our bags and head for the lake and our front-row seats for another view of Denali. It’s after 10 p.m. and we still need our visors and sunglasses. I struggle to stay awake until the sun goes down about midnight. E’Louise Ondash is a freelance writer living in North County.

City encourages residents to be ready for wildfires SAN MARCOS — While San Marcos was hit hard by wildfire this May, the city of San Marcos has been actively reviewing emergency plans and resources to ensure the community is prepared for the peak fire season still ahead. “It is no secret that San Marcos and all of Southern California often sees a brutal fall fire season,” said San Marcos Fire Chief Brett Van Wey. “Considering extreme weather conditions and drought, risk is particular high this year and we must all step up our preparedness game,” he added. To prepare, regional fire agencies and the County of San Diego is recommending residents take a “Ready, Set, Go!” approach for peak fire season. Residents are asked to get “ready” by creating or maintaining at least 150 feet of defensible space — but to do so only early in the morning when the grasses are still dewy to prevent sparking a fire in the dry heat of the day. Residents can also get “ready” by making an emergency plan and gathering emergency supplies. If a fire breaks out, San Marcos residents can get “set” to evacuate by: subscribing to the City’s e-alerts and facebook and twitter pages, setting radios to AM 1610 station and watching other news outlets; grabbing their emergency supply kit; leaving inside and outside lights on so firefighters can see their home through smoke; closing all windows and doors but leaving them unlocked for firefighters; turning off propane and gas tanks, pilot lights and air conditioning; moving furniture to the center of the room and bringing patio furniture inside. All these steps give your home a better chance if embers were to land on your property. For more information, visit

The family moved to Sacramento, California when Gary was five years old. Gary helped with the family business, Martin’s Hardware store from the time he was 12 years old until he left for college. Gary attended Encino High School in Sacramento and attended the University of the Pacific in Stockton California obtained both his undergraduate degree and his Doctorate degree in Pharmacy in 1976. Gary moved to Encinitas and started his 39 year career as a Pharmacy Manager for Sav-On Drugs. Gary married Sue Lawry in 1986,they had their son Drew in 1991, divorcing in 1998. In July of 2001, Gary met Susan

Daugherty and they began their lifelong relationship residing together since January 2010.

His favorite place to visit was Hawaii, which he last vacationed with Susan in October last year. Gary was loved by everyone whose life he touched both professionally and personally. One friend wrote “His boisterous laughter, instinctive sense of humor and generous heart will always be remembered amongst many other honorable traits this wonderful man possessed. One of them is that he would always listen to you—no matter at what party, how in depth or off the wall your conversation may be—and pontificate as if it were a world study and end with a joke, oh so typical of an Irishman. Gary deeply loved his dear Susan, his son Drew, family and friends and deeply cared about people in general. He was, and always will be loved and respected by so many.

WATERBOY, the superior brand of water By Conrad Rios

The Antique Gas & Steam Museum in the North County boasts more than 20,000 items that tell the stories of early agriculture.

What you didn’t know about this museum In 1976, a group of collectors and enthusiasts formed the California Early Days Gas Engine and Tractor Association to celebrate their love of the history behind the early days of farm equipment and life. This pioneering group founded the museum and negotiated the original lease with the County of San Diego to secure the 55 acres of rolling farm ground in North County. Starting with a few oldtime engines and equipment pieces, the museum now boasts more than 20,000 items, ranging from a Corliss Steam Engine with a 19,000-pound flywheel to a room decided to the preservation of rare

From the earliest days, one of the most unique aspects of the museum is its dedication to the continued operation and preservation of early technology. manuals and photographs. From the earliest days, one of the most unique aspects of the museum is its dedication to the continued operation and preservation of early technology. Unique from traditional museums with static displays, the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum’s equipment is maintained in operating condition. In addition to the working equipment, the museum is also a living history example of early agriculture. Much of the property to this day is still set aside for farming. Dry-land crops that were typical to the area around the turn of the century such as wheat and oats are still grown today. Intermittently corn, sorghum or other irrigated crops are cultivated. During the bi-annual Harvest Fairs in June and October, the grounds come alive with activity. Visi-

tors have the rare opportunity to observe a threshing machine in operation, blacksmiths working at their trade, women baking bread in a woodstove from wheat grown, harvested and ground into flour, right on the property. Visitors can also watch steam and gas engines providing power for pumping water, grinding grain and other chores typical on early American farms. Volunteer members supply support and manpower for all programs and operations, ensuring history stays alive. The museum’s elementary program, School of Times Past, continues to expand to meet demand. The museum enables students to observe early historical equipment and participate in fun projects with the Museum’s school educator, Ms. Whimplewart. Internship studies in museology, collections management and small business administration are also offered. Numerous documentaries focused on the museums collections have been filmed for the video market and television programming. Classic museum equipment has been used in countless movies and television productions including “Stargate,” “Mulholland Falls,” “LA Confidential,” “Modern Marvels,” “Pearl Harbor” and “Seabiscuit,” among others. Funding for museum operations and all major projects is through public grants or private donation. An endowment fund has been established to provide ongoing operating funds in addition to bequests and private donations. The museum is registered as a nonprofit corporation (33-0205333) and all gifts of collection items, cash or tangible property are deductible. Contact the museum office for details or visit for more information.

In this ever changing world, the need for conservation of resources has never been more important in our daily lives, especially those pertinent to maintaining life itself. It is an understatement to say our need for quality water in every aspect of daily life is critical to our existence. Being that water is the most important resource, it’s important to understand the best way to manage our use of water by insuring affordability while maximizing quality for everyday use. As with many things, “quality” is often circumvented when it comes to “affordability,” but in the case of water, many wise consumers have discovered an incredible option that delivers the best of both worlds; a home or business water filtration and conditioning system. The key word is “filtration,” but it’s not as simple as choosing just any of the available systems — by no means do they perform alike. “Our customers are very educated nowadays and they want an environmentally safe water solution that also protects the pipes in their homes, says Elaine Montemarano, general manager for Superior Water, WATERBOY’s parent company. Salt softeners are becoming obsolete because

of the harmful chemicals that are put into our environment. The WATERBOY is all natural and great for the plants and pets. The WATERBOY provides fresh water the way it was meant to be while filtering out the unwanted impurities, both natural and man-made.” The exceptional process is what makes the WATERBOY unique and can be utilized in any setting; single-family households, multi-unit condominium complexes, or within any type of office or commercial facility. The WATERBOY system begins by running incoming water through a

three stage award winning carbon filtration, internal sediment filter and bacteria static filter. Once completely filtered, the water is conditioned through an industrial 4th stage module that truly sets the WATERBOY apart from the competition. The WATERBOY has a Reversing Industrial Fields Module that conditions the water non-chemically by literally restructuring and realigning the polarity of mineral molecules without removing them from the water, while descaling the existing limescale in the pipes. The end result is a superior quality of water that tastes great, silkier

on the skin, and completely non-corrosive. Clearly, the WATERBOY stands alone in delivering the best quality water affordably with over 17,000 satisfied customers since 1997. One testimonial from research scientist, Dr. Richard Weber, says it all: “In studies I have made evaluating water systems, the one that closely simulates the Earth’s natural filtration process is the WATERBOY from Superior Water. In simple language, it has a means of filtering out bad while sparing the good… In terms of product quality, the WATERBOY is the best system for your home.”

Local auto shop owner hosts free event OCEANSIDE — Lael Leone knew he wanted to do something to give back to the community that he loves. Leone, owner of Lael’s International Auto Service, had an idea that would not only help the community, but would at the same time promote his business’ services.

The eight-hour event was open to the public, and local residents were offered AAA 40-point inspections, tire-changing demos by AAA drivers, free AAA battery inspections, CHP instructions on proper installation of car seats and information on preventative maintenance and answers to service-related questions. Leone was excited to be able to meet current and prospective customers. “This was a chance for me to talk to customers on a detailed basis,” he said. “It was a great turnout.” “We covered a number of safety items with respect to suspension, brakes, hoses and more.” The body shop was also opened up allowing event-goers the chance to see equipment up close. In addition to the inspections and safety demos, Leone also hosted a barbe-

‘Alexander’ goes from bad to worse By Noah S. Lee

The charming lessons “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” tries to communicate get hampered by its hectic comedic excess. Don’t you just hate it when you experience a bad day? Well, like it or not, those bad times are a part of life, something for us to keep in mind so as to appreciate the good ones. It’s an endearing message for people of all ages, one that can easily be taken for granted. Of course Disney would want to convey that through “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” only in a more exaggerated direction. Thing is, over-the-top doesn’t necessarily equal a job well done. And you don’t need a big brain to realize the amount of chaos you’re dealing with, especially after reading that ridiculously lengthy title. To prove its point, the film hurls countless bad things at the title character, played by Ed Oxenbould; mishaps, bad luck, and chaos reign supreme in the time it takes to introduce his miserable life. Not for one second does his day proceed as he’d hoped for, and he finds little sympathy from his upbeat folks, who somehow manage to survive each day unscathed. You have to wonder, for a family comedy that re-

That’s precisely what happens when Alexander discovers his father, mother, and siblings experiencing their very own bad days. The question is: can any good come out of this? Yes and no. On the one hand, there isn’t much for me to comment on when it comes to story and narrative structure; the only noticeable components are endless mayhem and craziness from scene to scene. I’m not saying there’s no story, but it’s hard to pay attention to what Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner go through when all there is to see are

misadventures 90 percent of the time. I think Disney went a bit overboard with the wacky comedy, at times exercising little to no restraint whenever it came to deciding whether what they had was too much. And when your primary tool is chaos for the sake of chaos, there’s no telling what results you’ll produce. I suppose this shouldn’t come as a surprise: who doesn’t lose control when you bite off more than you can chew? On the other hand, I’ll admit there were a number of laughs and occasional heartfelt moments that I found entertaining; enough reason to not lose hope. Several key highlights (Steve Carell’s restaurant antics,

Kerris Dorsey’s botched school play performance and the Australian-themed birthday party at the end, to name a few) certainly sustained the film. And it’s obvious that “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” means well, despite its flaws. From the looks of it, the acting is workable enough to express the film’s noble intentions, and the good news is that everybody — Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Ed Oxenbould, Dylan Minnette, Kerris Dorsey — gets a fair share in navigating his or her troubles and recognizing what matters most, even when the going gets rough. I’d advise you to hold off on watching “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” until it becomes available as a rental. Even if you enjoy Steve Carell’s work and are hankering to see what he’s been up to recently, I really don’t see how this film needs to be watched in theaters. Otherwise, go in with low expectations. MPAA rating: PG for rude humor, including some reckless behavior and language. Run time: 1 hour 21 minutes Playing: In general release

LaMontagne working in the ‘service of the songs’ By L. Kent Wolgamott

Ray LaMontagne wasn’t intentionally changing his sound when he set about making his latest album “Supernova.” He was just working in service of the songs. “I take every song on its own and try to make it as strong as it can be from a songwriters perspective,” he said. “For this record, I wanted to focus on certain kinds of song and writing specifically for that...That means you spend a lot of time picking songs that were good, to try to get a certain feel and cohesion. “I just wanted to try to focus on a record that would be really cohesive from start to finish in its song colors, songs that fit well together more so than I have in the past.” Those songs colors are sunny Laurel Canyon meets ‘60s Brit pop psychedelic, a notable departure from the folk-rock crooning that has turned LaMontagne into something of a reluctant star. The shift, he says, reflects his feelings while the songs were being written and recorded. But it doesn’t mark a change in his musical approach. “It’s the same as everything else,” he said. “I just love songs. If it’s a good song, I’m down for it. If it’s Pink Floyd or Hank Williams, if

it’s a good song, it’s a good song.” But those good songs, at least from LaMontagne, are far from autobiographical. There are those who have interpreted the “Supernova” songs as reflections of a “happy Ray,” who has recovered from the burn out andnear depression that set in from two years of touring behind his 2011 album “God Willin’ and the Creek Don’t Rise” and had him considering quitting music altogether. That’s not the case, he said. Even though “Supernova” is full of references to California, LaMontagne doesn’t live there. Nor are his songs about love gone wrong, relationships in ruins and domestic strife about his life. He and wife, Sarah Sousa, who was his high school sweetheart, are happily married with a pair of teenage sons. “That’s been something I’ve been saying from the beginning,” LaMontagne said. ”I keep telling them year in and year out, it’s only bits and pieces, little bits and pieces that can be taken back to me. I don’t know where the stuff comes from. They’re a mystery to me.” Writing melodies is the easy part for LaMontagne. “Melodies come into my head 24 hours a day,” he said. TURN TO LAMONTAGNE ON 13

“Lyrics, that’s a more focused practice that’s a short amount of time. When a melody starts to form, that’s when the lyrics start. That can be a very complicated process, writing and editing at the same time. That’s really about getting into some kind of a head space, allowing yourself to write it as it feels right.” Once the songs are written, then they have to be recorded. For “Supernova,” LaMontagne hooked up with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. He’d contacted Auerbach get some advice on an engineer with plans to make the record at home. That query led to LaMontagne going to Nashville to record at Auerbach’s studio there. Auerbach brought in the players needed to create the hazy, joyous sounds and then LaMontagne added his vocals, which, again, are a departure from the soulful crooning of his previous releases. “I think of my voice as an instrument,” he said. “If I need to belt it out, I do it. If I need to be soft, I do it. If I need falsetto, I do it. In the beginning, everybody called me a soul singer or

Van Morrison — all that was b.s. I never saw myself as a soul singer ever.” LaMontagne, who has been very self-critical over the course of his career, is happy with “Supernova.” “I would say 98 percent of it is done that way (well), for me personally,” he said. “Had I had another three, four weeks to work on, I would have been able to get 100 percent, to my satisfaction. I think I could get closer to what I wanted.” LaMontagne has put together a new band to take the “Supernova” songs on the road and has worked in songs from throughout his career into his set. LaMontagne, 40, now has five albums behind him, a contemporary folk Grammy for “God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise” and a strong following that lets him tour as long as he likes. “I feel like at this point in my life, I’ll have a career for as long as I want it,” he said. “If I want to stop, I’ll do that. If I want to do it for the next 15, 20 years, I can. I think that’s a pretty good place to be after 15 years of hard work. It feels great. But it hasn’t been without a lot of hard work. But it’s been a worthwhile thing to do.”

ODD FILES BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Bionic Shoes Police in Japan’s Kyoto Prefecture raided a shoe manufacturer in July and commandeered a list of about 1,500 purchasers of the company’s signature “tosatsu shoes� — shoes with built-in cameras. Investigators have begun visiting the purchasers at home to ask that they hand in the shoes (but, out of fairness, said they would not cause trouble for customers who could produce a legitimate reason for needing to take photographs and video by pointing their shoe at something). The seller was charged with “aiding voyeurism� and fined the equivalent of about $4,500 under a nuisance-prevention law. The Entrepreneurial Spirit Doris Carvalho of Tampa, Florida, is raising venture capital to expand her hobby of crafting high-end handbags from groomed, recycled dog hair (two pounds’ worth for each bag). With investors, she could lower her costs and the $1,000 price tag, since it now takes 50 hours’ labor to make the yarn for her haute couture accessory. Among the suggestions of the Brisbane, Australia, company Pets Eternal for honoring a deceased pet (made to a reporter in September): keeping a whisker or tooth or lock of hair, or having the remains made into jewelry or mixed with ink to make a tattoo. Overlooked was a new project by the Houston space-flight company Celestis, known for blasting human ashes into orbit (most famously those of “Star Trek� creator Gene Roddenberry). Celestis, working with a California company, will soon offer to shoot pets’ remains into orbit ($995) or perhaps even to the moon ($12,000). American Scenes (1) Staci Anne Spence, 42, was hauled to jail for assault in Sandpoint, Idaho, in September, but when the squad car arrived at the station, officers learned that during the ride, she had completely gnawed through the back seat — foam padding and seat cover. (2) A 38-year-old man was taken, unconscious, to St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, in August. After allegedly choking his mother-in-law and refusing to cooperate with police, who used a stun gun and chemical spray on him to no effect, he dramatically KO’d himself with an empty beer bottle.

Not since 1985 did the postseason include the Royals, the same year of their only world title. A peek at Royals games in K.C. come with an appreciation of an exuberant fan base going bonkers. “It’s been nearly 30 years,’’ Black said. “That is a great sports town that is very loyal to its teams.’’ Black knows. As a 28-year-old lefthander he started on opening day and 32 other games for the ‘85 Royals, following up his 17-12 season with a 10-15 mark. Bret Saberhagen was at the top of the rotation, one of four pitchers, including Black, throwing 200 innings. Saberhagen was the Cy Young Award winner — Dan Quisenberry, a force as the closer. In ‘85 the Royals were the first team to trail 0-2 and win the World Series. Before that they rallied from a 1-3 deficit for the AL title against the Blue Jays.

Brett remained with the Royals as Black’s playing career took him to Cleveland, Toronto, San Francisco and back to Cleveland, ending there in 1995.

Base restores rare habitats and trails CAMP PENDLETON — Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is coordinating with California State Parks and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to enhance the coastal bluff overlooking the San Onofre State Beach. As part of its environmental stewardship, Camp Pendleton is restoring vernal pool habitat on the bluffs and improving an existing overlook trail. The project will involve surface grading and habitat replacement. These seasonal pools provide habitat for the San Diego fairy shrimp, a federally listed endangered species. Vernal pool habitat in Southern California is extremely rare due to erosive effects of coastal development. The existing overlook

trail will be resurfaced to improve public access. In early October 2014, pedestrian traffic will be re-routed temporarily while the trail is being resurfaced. While the overlook and perimeter trail will remain open after access improvements, portions of the bluff that are part of the rare habitat will be closed to foot and vehicular traffic. Camp Pendleton requests that visitors to the State Beach use designated trails and roadways as unauthorized entry can disturb sensitive habitat and harm endangered species on the site. The Marine Corps is committed to the preservation of natural resources and actively engages in environmental stewardship consistent with its mission.

Exercise trains new Marines By Sgt. Christopher Duncan

CAMP PENDLETON — Approximately 300 entry-level infantry Marines participated in a Company Integration Exercise at Range 408 on Camp Pendleton on Sept. 25. The event culminated a 52-day training course for the Marines of Company A, Infantry Training Battalion, School of Infantry-West, where instructors evaluated students on basic-infantry skills in a combined arms exercise before they graduate from ITB and proceed to their designated units. Range 408 shows the students the supporting arms they’ll employ in a combat environment and how to properly engage enemies using assets like mortars, machine guns, assaultmen, and riflemen envelop enemy targets, according to Sgt. Jason Harris, a combat instructor with Company A.

The range includes and implements the different infantry occupational specialties at the company level. Medium/light machine guns and mortars suppress the enemy first, providing the supporting fire for a squad size element of riflemen and assaultmen to attack the enemies’ position. “This particular range is a smaller version of a (heavy, medium, and light weapons engagement) where we open up with our 60mm mortars, prepping those targets by applying as much destruction as possible,” said Harris. Clearing a path with mortar fire allows the medium and smaller combat elements to be effectively implemented on the battlefield, according to Harris. “Next we engage targets with our light machine guns, the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, as our squad

element of riflemen and assaultmen push into the assault position,” said Harris. “Soon after, the squad forms to assault through the objective, where we employ our M240 medium machine guns and the squad conducts fire-and-movement on and through the objective.” In conducting this exercise, these forthcoming warfighters learn fundamentals that can be critical to their effectiveness in combat and protect one another. “One of the overall things we learned was communication; knowing where each team member is, especially when buddy rushing on a range like this. We have to know where the guy to our left and right are and what they are doing to be effective,” said Pfc. Michael Jetel, a student with Company A. “With supporting fire by machine guns and mortars, it definitely puts into

perspective why we do this and why we utilize them. Obviously it is very basic here, but it’s good to know why and how we do this before we move into our units.”

facilities. TaylorMade Golf has 162 full-time employees to assemble clubs in their facility off El Camino Real year-round with a need for more employees when operations pick up around April and May. “We’re relying on humans to do it,” said Jim McKim, Tooling and Process Engineer at TaylorMade. Skilled manufacturers assemble more than 6 million clubs annually at the facility and the lack of automation allows the production to stay flexible, McKim said. A new product is released about every six months. TaylorMade debuted the metal driver in 1979 in Illinois and continues to release innovative technology, such as a white driver that minimizes reflection. Founder Gary Taylor decided to move TaylorMade to Carlsbad because the weather allows for year-round play and because the aerospace industry in San Diego offered a talent pool full of innovators, Melissa Claassen, Chief Financial Officer at TaylorMade said. “The innovation just hasn’t stopped,” Claasen said. Research and development is also located in the building. The parts are manufactured in Asia and

shipped to the Carlsbad facility for assembly, according to Jory Mendes, Global Communications specialist at TaylorMade, because Taylor was a big proponent of keeping jobs in America. Carlsbad manufacturers have expressed a need for more skilled workers and in July the city agreed to lease a building to MiraCosta Community College to open a North San Diego Technology Career Institute. Students were able to enroll this fall in the 12 or 16-week program but space is limited until the program moves into the city-owned building on Las Palmas Drive in January. Another manufacturer in the region that took part in the National Manufacturing Day was Stone Brewing in Escondido.

Stone is the tenth-largest craft brewery in America and produces 213,000 barrels of beer a year, according to Justin Holmes, Indoctrination Specialist at Stone Brewing. Over 100 brewers and bottlers work on-site to produce Stone’s renowned India Pale Ale (IPA)-style beers. The brewery has more than half a million dollars worth of hops at any given time to make the hopheavy IPAs, according to Holmes. The company plans to expand to Germany making it the first American craft-brewery to operate in Europe. Expansion to the east coast is also in the works, according to Holmes. Columbus, Ohio, Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia are among the cities being considered, Holmes said.

anized. Adams recalls she received a call from a person representing an anonymous buyer — now identified as Simon — who wanted to purchase the ranch and the animals. Initially suspicious of the “shadow buyer,” Adams said she proceeded with the sale because she was looking to sell the ranch for someone to continue the business. That was until August, when, instead of a consummation of a purchase, PETA

He said the tablets are a long time coming. He added teaching technology and providing students continuous access to technology are two different things. “It levels the playing field,” Kellish said. “It allows them to pursue their interests.” Teachers have received ongoing training to work with iPads and utilize technology in their lessons since the middle school got


years old, they are accepted as old vines. They stand out in the vineyard as artistically twisted, arthritic looking, and gnarly vines. They are survivors. Up in Geyserville, Sonoma, Jim Pedroncelli is about as knowledgeable as anyone gets. He calls his 2012 Pedroncelli Zins, “Mother Clone.” “Our Mother Clone vines contribute fruit to the younger vines through cloning. We add in a small amount of Petite Sirah for additional color and a high note of tannin to get a jammy, blackberry flavor with black pepper spice ($17). A little further south, the Healdsburg area is home to Seghesio Family Vineyards with its 2011 Old Vine Zin that recently picked up a 92 point rating at Wine Spectator ($38.99).

ma is one of the pioneers of modern California Old Vine Zins. It stopped putting Zinfandel on their labels and instead placed vineyard location names such as the 2012 Lytton Springs in Sonoma ($38), confident that a “taste the place” would increase in importance. This wine logs in at over 100 years on the vines. “Old Vine Zinfandel should be preserved and honored as part of our past,” says Dr. Jim Wolpert of the University of California at Davis. “They are a national treasure and should be treated with reverence like our redwoods and oak trees.”


that is on the ballot is. He argued that it’s not written by Escondido residents and gives too much power to city council. He said even though the council salaries can’t be increased by more than five percent each year, bonuses and car allowances weren’t addressed. “That’s where the city of Bell got into trouble,” Greene said. Mayor Abed argued that giving more power to the council is a good thing because it would give the city “home rule advantage”

OCT. 10, 2014 power company. SDG&E, the release stated, would cover the cost of operating the helicopters during the first two hours of flight of any new fire, and the county would cover the second two hours of flight. That money would come from the county’s aerial fire protection fund. By having it up here in the North County, obviously it’s closer to in-

cidents, so there’s less flight time coming from Gillespie Field in El Cajon (where the helicopter will be staged on non high fire risk days), Gibbs explained. “It’s not only important for us to meet our mission in the District, but it’s a regional air asset that’s available to the entire county and for that matter, all of North County,” he said.

and Humane Society officials showed up in force on the property, confiscating the animals and destroying the cages that they lived in. The scene left Adams confused and heartbroken, she said. “I didn’t know what was going on, and then I found out that they were calling it a rescue,” she said. “When in fact it was a purchase,” Curran said. PETA President Ingrid Newkirk fired back with a statement on behalf of the animal-rights group: “This complaint isn’t good enough to line the floor

of one of the metal cages in which Lurlie Adams housed chinchillas for decades — cages that stood next to a refrigerator full of pelts as well as a crude device used to painfully electrocute the animals and a chinchilla pelt-stretching drum,” Newkirk said. “Mr. Simon is an upstanding man, and thanks to him, more than 350 of the chinchillas have already been adopted into wonderful homes where they can finally be safe.” Curran said that a judge would ultimately be the arbiter of the legitimacy of the suit.

word of the grant award last May. On Oct. 3 the iPads were ready to check out to students. “You should see their faces,” Kellish said. For two days the VIDA auditorium was set up with stations for parent paperwork, iPad pickup and computer setup and training. Most stations were manned by middle school students. Sixth-grade student and technology crewmember Eric Macieo downloaded software onto the iPads and gave fellow students a brief how-to lesson on computer operation basics at the final station. Students checked out the iPads for the school year much like a library book. The handheld computer tablets are encased in a durable, shock-resistant

cover to prolong their life. Students remain responsible for care of the $730 devices, with replacement insurance available to families. To ensure online safety, school district safety filters are installed in the iPads to keep students off of inappropriate sites. Responsible online citizenship is also taught in class. The school’s obligation during the two-year grant period is to allow video documentation of the impact of iPads and connectivity on students’ learning. Chagala said documentation would be used to help guide the foundation in its future philanthropic efforts. The iPads remain the property of the school. VIDA and Rancho Minerva Middle School are two of five middle schools in the district.

and take power away from the state. He also argued the city would save money on prevailing wages, which are the wages government agencies pay workers, because councilmembers could establish a wage instead of adhering to the state’s prevailing wages. The final proposition debated was the Lakes Specific Plan, or Prop H. Developer Michael Schlesinger argued in favor of his plan to build 430 homes on the Escondido Golf Course saying he’s made a compromise by not building the allotted 600 homes and making 25 percent of the land open space.

He also argued that the swimming pool, community center and trails he proposed would be open for all Escondido residents and the passing of the proposition would save the city thousands in legal fees. Realtor Rick Elkin argued against the plan saying it would be the biggest infill in San Diego County’s history and the cost of upkeep for the pool and community building isn’t spelled out and may go to the taxpayer. He also argued the Home Owner’s Association could potentially ban non residents down the line from using the facilities, which Schlesinger denied.

Sorrento Valley Scripps Ranch Kearny Mesa

Hillcrest Downtown

of the neighbors have been opposed to or skeptical of the project largely due to a feature of the project that would extend Las Posas Road in San Marcos nearly to Buena Creek. While the project does not call for the road connection to be completed, neighbors see the development as simply a step toward the inevitable completion of that link, which will exacerbate traffic along Buena Creek and Twin Oaks Valley Road. Twin Oaks Valley Road, which turns into Deer Springs Road, already becomes bogged down with traffic during rush hour as commuters use it to avoid traffic along the eastbound state Route 78 on their way

to Interstate 15. “The project itself is going to create the demand for the extension,” said Mary Borevitz, who lives in the area north of Buena Creek Road. “If I lived in that community, I would look at the fact that there was only one way and out of the community, and that would be dangerous, I would demand that road be finished. So I just see this as paving the way for the extension.” Borevitz and other neighbors said while they appreciate the efforts of the developer to address some of those concerns, ultimately, they will remain opposed to it because of the specter of that road’s completion, among other things, including the potential of homes being built on the hills in the

project area. While the land currently in the city is bound by the city’s voter-approved ridgeline protection ordinance, the soon-tobe-annexed property was not part of that ordinance, and would require another public vote to be added to the protection. “When they talk about people being opposed to anything being built there, they are referring to me,” Borevitz said. “That land is a beautiful piece of open space, and we want that land to be bought by a conservancy. “We have seen San Marcos grow from a little sleepy town into a bustling suburbia, and if we don’t do anything, there will not be any of these open spaces left for us and our future generations,” Borevitz said.
