Donation offers more opportunity By Tony Cagala

VISTA — For the past several years now, students that might not otherwise be interested in taking the traditional approach to high school have had the opportunity to continue their education and explore industries that could give them the best chance at a successful future. This year, the 180 students attending North County Trade Tech High School are again taking the opportunity to follow the educational path that works best for them. “We saw a need to provide an alternative learning environment, one that focused on preparing youth for college, but also developing skills,” said Doreen Quinn, CEO and founder of the school. On Monday, the school received a check for $100,000 from H.G. Fenton Company, one of the school’s partners

and contributors since 2008. “We’re so happy with what we’re seeing here,” Kari Prevost, H.G. Fenton’s executive vice president said. “The academy really is the future of education for our youth, especially for the industry that we are in, which is real estate and development,” said Prevost. Much of the school’s money is gained through donations and fundraising efforts. The funds given by Fenton will help pay for a teacher’s salary and supplies, among other things. The campus, situated in a business park off of Melrose Drive, offers more of a corporate-like feeling with open space schemes that can be reconfigured as they need the space. Boasting a 100 percent graduation rate, Quinn said that being a fully accredited high school, students

are able to go on to attend universities once graduated. The students Prevost has seen emerge from the school she described as creative thinkers and hard working, which she added aligned with the principles that Fenton abides by such as being customer-oriented and more environmentally responsible when it comes to development projects. With open space at a premium concern for most residents in the North County, Prevost said that Fenton likes to take a different approach when it comes to development. “If you look at open space, there isn’t a lot of open space. But what are the opportunities for the areas that could use some new revitalization, some new concepts? A different approach to the building that’s been there for a long TURN TO TRADE TECH ON 18

San Marcos Council gives OK to affordable housing project By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council approved two preliminary agreements that pave the way for further revitalization efforts in the city’s Richmar neighborhood. The first agreement calls for the city to loan $392,000 in low- and moderate-income housing fund to a partnership composed of Hitzke Development and National Community Renaissance of Rancho Cucamonga, also known as National CORE, to pay for predevelopment activities associated with a proposed 120-unit affordable senior housing complex on West Mission Road and Pico Avenue. Multiple groups currently own land at the

proposed 4.5-acre site, including the city and the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which has a post on the property. According to a city staff report, the project will be built in up to three phases due to a lack of funding in the post-redevelopment era, but the development team plans on applying for low-income tax credits as early as 2016. The second agreement is tied to the proposed demolition and reconstruction of the Villa Serena complex on Marcos Street and Richmar Avenue. National CORE purchased the 132-unit complex the late 1990s and converted to affordable housing. According to a staff report, the developer

said the apartments are aging and reaching the point where a rehabilitation or reconstruction would be necessary in the near future. National CORE, according to the staff report, said demolition would be the least expensive option, and requested a $777,000 loan from the city’s redevelopment successor agency to move the project through the design and entitlement phase. City staff said the loan, however, would be cost neutral because it would come from funds associated with the current Villa Serena project — essentially, National CORE would be loaning itself the money. The new development

would consist of 136 to 145 affordable units and include a community center and social program from CORE’s sister program, Hope from Housing. As with the first development, CORE said funding limitations will require the project to be phased. Since the completion of the landmark Paseo Del Oro housing complex, the Richmar area has experienced a renaissance that includes the development of three additional housing complexes, two parks and the promise of one more on the way. In the process the development has transformed the area from one of the city’s most crime-ridden neighborhoods to one a family-friendly one.

Council candidates debate ballot initiatives By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — District 1 and 2 Council candidates took part in a forum Wednesday morning to discuss their stances on budget issues and ballot initiatives. This will be the first election in which voters will choose among their districts. Voters in District 1 can only vote for a candidate in that district. Councilman John Masson called the re-districting divisive. “The challenge is, you have to keep your constituents happy if you want to remain in office, to get things done for all of Escondido,” said Masson. This is Masson’s first time running, since he was appointed to his position by city council in 2012. Candidates who are running against him in District 2 agreed with the re-districting. “I agree with the districting. We should be working as a whole city together,” said Nicole Downey. “We’re all very passionate about the city. Just because we have districts now, I don’t think that’s going to change,” said Rick Paul. Consuelo Martinez, who is a candidate in District 1 also agreed with the re-districting. “The city government should reflect the community that it’s in and I think districts are one way of doing that,” said Martinez. The open space initiative was also discussed, which is a controversial initiative voters will decide on in

November. Developer Michael Schlesinger hopes to overturn the permanent open-space designation of the Escondido Golf Course to develop more than 400 homes and community facilities. Paul said he was running as the “open space candidate,” and is staunchly against Prop H because he believes the golf course was part of the city’s Master Plan and there is no reason to change it now. Martinez supports the initiative because she wants to save the city millions of dollars in legal fees, which it’s facing now because Schlesinger is suing the city for making his property worthless. Chad Hunziker, who is running in District 2, also supports Prop H, because he said constituents are excited about the swimming pool and community facilities the developer promised to include. Current councilmembers Ed Gallo and Masson don’t support the initiative. Gallo said a promise was made to the residents on the golf course when it was built 50 years ago and city council needs to keep that promise. Masson said he realizes Schlesinger has rights, “but I don’t think there’s any development rights that are under our current general plan.” Nicole Downey supports Prop H because she believes the city can’t take Schlesinger’s land without giving him anything in return.

Panel: Homelessness affects 8,500 in San Diego By Ellen Wright

REGION—San Diego is world-renowned for the zoo, the amazing weather and the beaches. However, it’s also home to the fourth largest homeless population in the country, according to Ruth Bruland, executive director at St. Vincent de Paul Village. Bruland took part in a panel discussion on Sept. 3, talking about how to be a “good neighbor” at an event held at the University of San Diego, and co-sponsored by KPBS. The event was part of St. Vincent de Paul’s Good Neighbor Month, which aims to raise awareness about homelessness in San Diego. Bruland said there are about 8,500 homeless people in San Diego and it’s home to the largest population of homeless veterans in the nation. She said the efforts of St. Vincent de Paul aim towards getting homeless people income and housing. “The success that matters to us, and frankly to one of our major funders, (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development), is this placement into permanent housing,” said Bruland, “and in order to do that, there has to be some way for that rent to be paid,” she

added. Head of the Homeless Outreach Team with the San Diego Police Department, Lt. Debbie Ferrar, also spoke at the panel about the department’s tactics in dealing with the homeless. “Dealing with homeless is not an event, it’s a process,” said Ferrar. She preaches compassionate enforcement to her officers. After the case Spencer v. San Diego went to the Supreme Court, said Ferrar, officers are no longer able to issue tickets to

homeless people, simply for being homeless, unless adequate shelter is available. San Diego also offers a storage space for the homeless to store their belongings, which Ferrar said, allows them to safely go to job interviews and not have to worry about their possessions. She went on to talk about the costs related to services the homeless receive. “To give somebody something for free seems counterintuitive, until you look at the

numbers, and it actually makes more sense to house people and pay for that because you pay less in services,” said Ferrar. If people want to donate to the homeless, she recommended giving to a charity that helps the homeless, instead of directly to the people. Bruland addressed the stigma of substance abuse among homeless people and said that 31 percent of the homeless population in San Diego has a high level of substance abuse, according to St. Vincent de Paul’s most

recent survey. “There is a fine line between giving charity and enabling people,” said Ferrar. Bruland discussed the difficulties homeless have in getting permanent housing in San Diego, saying that high rent is a huge factor. St. Vincent de Paul’s offers transitional housing, with a maximum stay of 12 months. The organization also offers permanent housing, and, according to Bruland, 91 percent of the people that use permanent housing eventually move into unsubsidized housing. The panel also addressed people’s attitudes toward homelessness and concluded there needs to be a fundamental shift in the way everybody needs to think about it. Ferrar said that in a lot of complaints she receives people ask, ‘can’t you just make them go away?’ Another panelist, Everard Meade, director of the Trans-Border Institute at USD, provided an answer. “People just don’t disappear, it doesn’t matter if we’re talking about incarcerating people or putting people from one jurisdiction to the next and moving people out of space,” said Meade, ”they’re not gone, they’re still part of our society.”

Palomar Health receives prestigious distinction By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — Palomar Health has just become the first California healthcare district to be designated Certified Healthcare District by the Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD) on Wednesday. “We are honored to become the first California Certified Healthcare District,” says Ted Kleiter, Palomar Health board president. “As a public healthcare district, we have a huge responsibility to our community. We strive to serve our district in an honest and transparent way each day.” In order to win the designation, Palomar had to meet a core set of standards

as set forth by the ACHD Governance Committee. “This core set of standards ensures that public healthcare districts are conducting business in a manner that is open and transparent for the benefit of the communities they serve,” said Lauren Garber, media specialist at the hospital. Palomar Health officials showed their compliance in transparency, ethics, reporting, purchasing, conflict of interest, requesting public funds and executive compensation, according to Garber. Board Director Jerry Kaufman oversaw the application process. “Being a Certified Healthcare District assures

the North County community that we are functioning with their best interest in mind,” said Robert Hemker, Palomar Health president and CEO. “Palomar Health has always been committed to providing the best possible healthcare to our patients, while adhering to best management practices,” said Hemker. Palomar Health is the largest public healthcare district in the state by area and serves over 500,000 residents in an 850 square mile region. The hospitals include Palomar Medical Center and Palomar Health Downtown Campus in Escondido, as well as Pomerado Hospital in Poway.

VISTA — The request for a special use permit to allow a possible bargain basement store to sell beer and wine was denied on Tuesday. In a split vote, one to allow the bargain basement store to open was passed 4-1, while another vote, to deny the special use permit for the bargain basement store to sell alcohol was denied 4-1. While the site on N. Santa Fe Avenue has been sitting vacant and become a target for vandalism over the past two years, the decision not to approve the special use permit to sell alcohol, may keep the site vacant even longer. Steve Rawlings, who spoke on behalf of the Dollar General stores, told the Council before any decision was made, that it was his understanding that if the ability to sell beer and wine at the site was denied, the business would probably withdraw and not proceed with opening the store. John Conley, director of Community Development and Engineering did recommend the City Council approve the store to open for the reasons of the business agreeing to improve the overall look of the building and the landscaping, which he described as being in “fairly poor condition.” Conley recommended the City Council deny the special permit use to sell alcohol at the site. He cited the high crime rate in the

neighborhood as shown in the Sheriff’s Department beat crime report having increased 50 percent from 2012 to 2013. The Dollar General store would be the first to open in San Diego County, according to Rawlings. He said there are approximately 150 to 175 stores in the state, which began opening in California in 2012 — the closest one to the county being in the city of Perris. Rawlings added that Vista was selected because it “fit their demographic,” of a suburban setting. “Unfortunately we’ve got an area that’s already impacted with stores,” said Deputy Mayor John Aguilera. “I think this area has enough liquor stores or availability of liquor in the

area.” According to the city’s presentation, there are eight other establishments along the avenue that have permits to sell beer and wine. Dollar General Corporation is based in Tennessee and has 11,000 small-box discount stores nationwide.

The signs indicate California’s recovery will last California Focus By Thomas D. Elias

Letters to the Editor Cyclists and bike lanes I live in Rancho Santa Fe. When driving our local roads I too often encounter bicycle riders who seem to have a death wish. Instead of riding where there is a big wide bike trail like on the Del Dios Highway (S6), a few insist on riding on Camino Del Norte or El Montevideo roads, for example. Those and most other RSF 2-lane roads are dangerous! There is no bike lane on many stretches. There are many right turns in which a driver cannot see whether a bicycle is in the traffic lane ahead. But a driver MUST not swing out wide over the double yellow stripes because a car going 40 MPH might be in the on-coming lane. Nobody wants to risk a head-on collision. But drivers are NOT going to slow to bicycle speed before rounding every blind corner. We can only hope a bicyclist is not in the traffic lane ahead. A few years ago my neighbor in Solana Beach, Dave Curnow while riding his bicycle was hit by a car. Dave remains paralyzed from the chest down. He was right, the driver was wrong, but Dave is still paralyzed. A bicyclist always loses in any collision with a car. Riding where there are no bike lanes and blind corners seems foolhardy in the extreme. If I were a bicyclist, I wouldn’t risk injury just because a road is more scenic. Larry Whitaker, Rancho Santa Fe Just the facts, please! As a Candidate for Escondido Mayor, current Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz must look at the larger picture from a macro view perspective to consider what is most in Escondido’s overall public interest as a city? That is why she supports Escondido’s Proposition H (The Lakes proposal for subdivision, public parks, public community facilities, developer con-

tribution for extra million, besides developer impact fees). That’s why I support Olga Diaz’ position, instead of considering only the micro-view of what’s best for County Club residents, and ECCHO’s own self interest. Olga’s support for Prop. H reflects careful analysis and judgment. I trust Deputy Mayor Diaz’ position, because it will have a better fiscal outcome (lesser cost) to the city of Escondido’s taxpayers, than the alternative(s). Olga deserves credit, not criticism, for display of superior fiscal responsibility than incumbent Mayor Abed. Patricia Borchmann, Escondido Where are the girls? This past August in Los Angeles, Google held the finals for its annual Code Jam computer coding contest. Of the 26 finalists, there were no females. Last year the San Dieguito Union High School District began offering a coding elective in its middle schools. Ninety-five percent of the students who enrolled were boys. This year the percentage improved somewhat to 88 percent boys. Where are the girls? Computer Science/ Information Technology continues to be one of the fastest growing and highest paid fields. The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computer specialist job openings. Yet U.S. universities anticipate that they will produce only enough qualified graduates to fill 29 percent of these jobs. In light of this information and when I consider what the future might hold for my 10-year-old daughter, the following statistics from the Girls Who Code website ( are equally alarming: • Despite the fact that 55 percent of overall

AP test takers are girls, only 17 percent of AP Computer Science test takers are high school girls; • In middle school, 74 percent of girls express interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), but when choosing a college major, just 0.3 percent of high school girls select computer science; • While 57 percent of bachelor’s degrees are earned by women, just 12 percent of computer science degrees are awarded to women. This is not OK. Is there something more we can do at our schools to encourage more female participation? I believe there is and that’s why I’m running for the Board of the San Dieguito Union High School District. There used to be a similar issue with girls and science, but for the last five years the San Dieguito School District has had a 50/50 gender balance in the AP level math and science courses. Part of the solution is to recognize the problem. Once we shed light on it the School Board can encourage actions that increase enrollment. If I am elected to the Board, this is exactly what I intend to do. Learn more about me from my website Rimga Viskanta Candidate for San Dieguito Union High School District Board

There are still skeptics who maintain the California economy remains in recession, that talk of economic recovery amounts to whistling past the proverbial graveyard when unemployment remains above 7 per cent. Gov. Jerry Brown labeled these folks “declinists” two years ago, when unemployment was much higher and the signs of recovery were not nearly as strong as they are today. But those signs are now seemingly almost everywhere, even though a few major corporations are in the process of moving headquarters elsewhere. For one thing, in midsummer, California – like the rest of America – finally had gained back all jobs lost in the recession of 2007-11. The new jobs may be in different places and of somewhat different types than those that were lost, but the fact is there actually has been a little bit of job growth since 2008, something that befuddles the declinists. The figures come from a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Then there’s the fact that California lawmakers are starting to realize this state has serious competition for some of its key industries, with other states and even some foreign countries willing to grant large subsidies to companies that move headquarters or parts of their businesses. One example is the upcoming move of Toyota’s national headquarters, complete with its sparkling museum of classic cars the company has produced since the 1930s, to a Dallas suburb. Not only will Toyota get large tax reductions for at least its first eight years in Texas, but it will pay far less for the land it needs than it figures to get when it sells the land it will vacate in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance. That’s standard procedure in many states. Louisiana, for example, has attracted large amounts of film and TV production not only because of its green scenery, but also because production companies save as much as 30 percent of their costs by going there. That’s through a combination of subsidized hotel rates and equipment rentals, tax relief and lower-priced labor. The same happens in places like North Carolina, Idaho and New York. The first step in California lawmakers wising up came when the Legislature during the summer expanded and extended tax exemptions for movie and TV production here. Then they passed a bi-partisan bill sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Steve Fox and Republican state Sen.

Steve Knight, both of Palmdale, giving military contractors Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin as much as $420 million in tax credits over 15 years for production of a new strategic bomber to replace the B-2, which was also developed largely in the Antelope Valley. In case they don’t get the Defense Department contract for that project, another bill with the same benefit for Northrop Corp. would provide similar help – about $28 million a year, or 17 percent of wages paid to manufacturing workers. There has been reluctance here to subsidize big industries; one reason California has lost a lot of them to other states and countries. There is good reason for that hesitance, as subsidies raise questions of favoritism and special interest influence. But with others offering so much, California at least now realizes it must get into this game. Then there’s venture capital, where the Silicon Valley this spring absolutely dominated the world scene. Fully 41 percent of all venture dollars invested around the world from April through June went to San Francis-

The new jobs may be in different places and of somewhat different types than those that were lost... co Bay area startups, a big improvement from the first quarter, when places like Texas and Massachusetts drew significant investment. But last spring, all of Europe got less than half what went to Silicon Valley, according to a report from PitchBook Data. The end result of this should be more companies headquartered in California, to join former startups like Google, Intel, Yelp and Twitter. Put it all together and you get a dynamic picture of job recovery, the prospect of great job growth and a reborn determination to preserve what the state already. That’s all bad news for the declinists who enjoy putting California down even while it pulls itself back up toward the golden stature it long enjoyed. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol. com.

might possibly save your life and the life of your loved ones. And best of all, you can ...

hat you are about to read may be the most important information you’ve ever read. Here is why. Albert Einstein was, quite possibly, the most intelligent person who ever lived. His theories and ideas were so far ahead of his time, that even now, the smartest scientists alive are still discovering his value.

Get This Information Absolutely FREE! Dr. Larry Lytle himself has written and compiled a FREE REPORT in which he explains to you exactly how and why low-level laser therapy works. Dr. Lytle will show you some unbelievable “before” and “after” pictures of people who have benefitted by this amazing new therapy.

One of his theories published in 1917, worked out the theory of how lasers function. However, it was not until May 16, 1960 (43 years later) that the first actual laser was developed by an American scientist. Since then, scientists and inventors have developed many types of lasers and all kinds of uses for them. They can be used as a scalpel that is so delicate, it can be used on the eyes of human beings. Lasers are used to read price codes at your local supermarkets. And they’re used to play music and video on your CD’s and DVD’s. But now, there is a new type of laser so effective against human disease and injury that it is rapidly changing the practice of medicine. This is a new type of low-level laser which produces an unfocused light that has been...

Registered With The FDA To Be 100% Safe! Low-level lasers use less than one watt of power and they produce what can best be described as a “Healing Light”. Here is a somewhat un-scientific description of how this “Healing Light” can potentially help reverse the damage done by human sickness and disease. As you probably know, our entire bodies are made up of cells. The health of all human cells is based on energy. If your cells don’t receive enough energy, they will weaken and the body will become sick. Call 1-800303-6923, Code 2228.

Be One Of The First 220 To Call & Receive A Free DVD! For you to be healthy, what your cells need is exactly the right kind and the right amount of energy. Every time you get injured or become sick, the energy flow to your cells is disrupted. Until the proper type and amount of energy is restored, you will remain sick or injured. That’s what a low-level laser device does. It reenergizes the cells in your body with the right kind and proper amount of healing energy. It may surprise you to learn that low level lasers are ...

Used By Doctors To Heal Their Patients In The Fastest Way Possible! Could you guess what kind of doctors use the highest percent of low-level lasers on their patients? It’s doctors involved in sports medicine. Why? The answer is simple. You see, doctors involved in sports medicine often have to get their patients better in the fastest way humanly possible because every day he remains “unhealthy” can cost the sports organization millions of dollars. But here’s something exciting! You don’t actually need to go to a doctor to get laser therapy. If you want to you can buy one of these devices and use it on yourself. The best ones come with simple, easyto-follow instructions and can be used by almost any person with average intelligence.

Professional Results In a Small, Easy to Use Package! Call 1-800-303-6923, Code 2228 For Your FREE Information Report. Perhaps the best low-level lasers in the world have been invented by a doctor named Larry Lytle. He has studied lasers and human health for years, and Dr. Lytle is, without question, one of the most knowledgeable people in the world about low-level lasers... and... how they can be used...

For some people, a free report and information like this can mark the beginning of an entirely new life... pain-free and full of energy. For others, it can make the difference of living a healthy life compared to a lowenergy life of sickness and disease. And, for those who live with enormous pain every day ... this free report could truly guide them to a miracle! But even if you are not sick, not injured, or not in pain, you should still order this report. After all, it is 100% free. And almost nobody lives out their life without having at least some kind of sickness or injury.

To Help Almost Every Health Problem Ever Experienced By A Human Being! Dr. Lytle believes (as do many other people) low-level laser therapy will become the medicine of the future. If you hold a low-level laser device against the skin of your body and turn it on, you will be able to see the laser light... but... you will not be able to feel it. There probably won’t even be a sensation of warmth. Laser light is as gentle as the kiss of a butterfly. But, from a healing point of view, it is quite possible it is more effective than drugs or surgery. Low-level laser therapy is not just the medicine of the future. For many people who know about it, it is the “medicine” they use now. The problem of trying to explain the healing powers of low-level laser therapy is...

It Works So Well On So Many Different Problems, It Seems Like It Couldn’t Possibly Be True!

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that, if you do become sick or injured, you will at least know where to go to find some sort of answer to your problems that don’t involve dangerous drugs!

Call 1-800-303-6923 ...after you are connected, at the prompt, press the code number - 2228 - into your keypad then leave your name and mailing information. That number again is 1-800-303-6923, Code 2228. Your free report ... and free gift (if you’re one of the first 220 callers) will be sent to you via 1st Class Mail.

But it is true! As mentioned earlier, all injury and illness creates an interruption of energy to the cells of the human body. The body will never recover until the proper amount and type of energy is restored to these cells. But once that energy is restored...

The Body Can Recover From Almost Anything! With the correct equipment, properly used, low level lasers have been clinically shown to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, increase cellular energy, increase cell permeability (so that the nutrients the cell needs to heal can get into the cell) and even help correct faulty DNA!* What you have just read is a very simplistic (almost childish) explanation of low-level laser therapy, of how it works, and what it can do for you. But this is something that needs to be explained to you much more accurately by a real expert. This is information which just might help relieve you of any disease and Advertisement

Colorado could be the next wine country

Colorful parasols ameliorate the intense Colorado sun as visitors explore the orchards and the lavender fields at Sage Creations Organic Lavender Farm in Palisade, Colo. Owner Paola Legarre says the farm grows 15,000 lavender plants and that it requires 80 pounds of lavender to produce about one quart of oil. Photos by E’Louise Ondash

may never eat grocery-store peaches again — not after tasting the largest and juiciest peach ever. Moments ago, it was hanging on a tree at High Country Orchards near Palisade, Colorado, a few minutes east of Grand Junction in the far western part of the state. “Our fruit has more sugar because of the altitude,” explains Theresa High, owner of High Country Orchards. Its 126 acres sit at 4,800 feet overlooking the Colorado River and the verdant valley through

which it snakes. In the background: Mount Garfield and the chalky Book Cliffs, so named because they resemble volumes lined up on a library shelf. I’ve come to expect natural drama in this part of the Colorado after spending a couple of days in and around Grand Junction. Our group explored the nearby Colorado National Monument and spent time in the town’s quaint and vibrant Main Street district. Today brings us to some of the area’s 20 vineyards and wineries, and a few of the local orchards and farms. The landscape is as beautiful as anything you’ll see elsewhere in the state, and yet the Grand Valley may be Color ado’s best kept secret. The Rocky Mountain

state is not yet readily synonymous with “wine country,” but it won’t be long. Grand Junction and Palisade have earned an American Viticultural Areas (ANA) designation called Grand Valley — an indication that the area has “identifiable and unique geographic and climatic features” that make the land here oh-so-perfect for growing grapes. “Warm days and cool nights create the perfect conditions,” says High, also owner of Colterris Wines, which first harvested the vines in 2008, and opened the tasting room in 2011. We enjoy a glass of crisp Coral White Cabernet Sauvignon — so perfect for a warm summer day — then tour the property. We discover the larger-than-life sculptures created by High’s husband, Scott, as well as portions of his collections of antique trucks, metal signs from bygone eras and 5,000 corkscrews. A few miles away, “Farmer Bob” Helmer, wife Alida and a two employees are busy transforming their fruit and vegetable crop into jams, jellies, syrups, salsas, candy and luscious, lacy-crusted pies. Today Helmer, who regrets not wearing his peach-patterned shirt and bib overalls for photos, shows visitors around their small-but-efficient operation. The machines package thousands of pounds of peaches for Sam’s Club and lots of gifts and foodstuffs for the busloads of tourists that make Alida’s a regular stop. “I’ve done a lot of things in my life,” says Helmer, who bought his

Dennis and Staci Clark’s children will be the sixth generation to care for their 100 acres and 40,000 fruit trees — peaches, apricots, cherries, pears and plums. Customers at their fruit stand get free wagon rides on summer weekends and during the Christmas season. “Palisade peaches are known as one of the best peaches in the world,” he proudly tells visitors while taking a break from the usual workday because of the rain earlier in the day — an unusual phenomenon for this time of year. Some of Grand Valley’s abundance comes in the four-legged variety, like the alpacas that reside at Sun Crest Orchard Alpacas and Fiber Works.

Inland Scout volunteers honored VISTA — Several North County inland-area volunteers were honored recently at Girl Scouts San Diego’s recent Volunteer Celebration. Heather Fryant of Vista received the Thanks Badge, the highest award for adult Girl Scouts, given to those who provide truly outstanding service that benefits the entire local organization and furthers its overall mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character. In addition to leading a Senior Girl Scout Troop, Fryant plans and implements many events for other girls in the Vista area.

She helps other troops get their girls outdoors and has served as lifeguard on Girl Scouts San Diego backpacking trips. Vista residents Emmy and Whit Davis, along with daughter Julia and Whit’s mother, Libby, accepted the Family Award. The entire Davis clan, which also includes Emmy and Whit’s children Natalie, Erin, Katie and Patrick, helped renovate the lake at Girl Scouts’ Camp Winacka near Julian, and often contributes to camp maintenance. They also started an archery program for girls at St. Francis of Assisi School. Janet Brugger of Vis-

ta, Barbara Schettler-Jehl of Escondido and Jessica Zamora of Oceanside are among the nearly 2,500 local volunteers who assist with the annual tradition of cookie sales. They received Cookie Awards for exceeding expectations, increasing girl participation and providing exceptional support for adults involved with the cookie program. Adela Resendiz of Vista was awarded the Honor Pin in recognition of her extensive outreach in the Latina community. She provides Spanish-language adult training and girl program ideas, and helps fami-

lies and troop leaders register their girls for activities. Additionally, Julia Lynne of San Marcos, Penny Halverson of Vista and Rosalie Brooks of Escondido took the stage to accept the Appreciation Pin. Haidee Banuet of San Marcos received the same honor, but was unable to attend. The honorees are among the 13,000 adult members who make it possible for Girl Scouts San Diego to serve 30,000 local girls. Girl Scouting for girls in grades K-12 has an annual membership fee of $15.

As one friend says, when the world gets weird, “Sagittarius must be in retrograde.” It was my very own “Rise of the Machines.” In one day, half of my 21st-century gadgets turned on me at the same time. I am waiting for life’s ref to give me 15 yards for piling on. First it was my computer at school. It started when I foolishly assured the IT guy that everything was working great. Within minutes of his departure, all gang agley. Suddenly the creature began freezing up mid-checkout and the book scanner took a strong dislike to the numbers on the bar codes and began making up its own. This happened, of course, while I had a line of anxious young readers with books in hand. That same morning, my just three-week-old iPhone announced “No Service.” I was wearing shirt and shoes, but despite my best efforts, it would not let me in, or any messages out. This, of course, required an hour on the phone with technical support, which sent me off to the store for a new SIM card and two hours of further kerfuffle. The phone refused

to be resuscitated and all the king’s horses and men could not fix it. I am now being sent a second-hand phone for which I must continue to pay the price of a new one. Good times. On the bright side, the shiny, new phone rolled over and died pretty swiftly, so perhaps a refurbished one will have worked out those bugs. I’m keeping a good thought. On the plus side, in the midst of my electronics nightmare, I figured out how to back up to the cloud. You laugh, but when it actually worked the first time, I saw it as another little piece of magic.

While the two central story arcs — one revolving around the consequences of the robbery, the other centered on the discovery of an abandoned puppy —may appear disparate at first, they actually become intertwined as the onscreen events continue to unfold.

Chargers let opportunity get by in loss

Buchanon is all Oceanside, except for one weekend a year

sports talk jay paris The man with the stylish clothes and gait of a former athlete glides across the Qualcomm Stadium turf with grace. He walks like someone with a purpose, and dang right, Willie Buchanon has one. Buchanon is part of the NFL’s fashion police, noting which players’ uniforms don’t conform to the league’s standards. His reports head to the league office, where the Park Avenue suits dock wages for those breaking the dress code. But before descending on someone with his pant legs not covering his knees — a no-no — Buchanon’s stride is interrupted. “O’side!” comes the throaty yell from a fan, oblivious to the game action. “O’side” comes the response from Buchanon, as well as a smile, which rivals the stadium lights. “I go to all the Oceanside High games,’’ said Buchanon, a member of the school’s Hall of Fame. “Unless I’m out of town.’’ Buchanon is on the road this week, trading his NFL detective work for a bratwurst, Old Style and stories that improve with age. It’s Packers alumni weekend and Buchanon would rather see Oceanside lose to El Camino than miss his annual Green Bay trip. Well, almost. It’s a special trek for a special guy, a player who was a standout cornerback for four local teams — Oceanside, MiraCosta College, San Diego State and the Chargers. But he made his mark with the Packers after being a 1972 first-round pick. One need not say “cheese” for Buchanon to grin about the good ol’ days. So when the calendar reveals alumni weekend, not even Buchanon’s beloved Pirates keep him around. “It’s the best,’’ said Buchanon, who played in Green Bay for six seasons.

“You get to laugh and see all those Green Bay Packers. From Bart Starr all the way down. They all come back because they are all part of the Packers legacy.’’ That includes Buchanon, a member of the team’s Hall of Fame. He’s Oceanside to the core, but if you cut him, Buchanon, 63, would bleed some green and gold. “The legacy is so strong there that it is just ridiculous,’’ said Buchanon, a long-time North County Realtor. “The city and team just open their arms to these guys, and a lot of them are just regular guys. But once a Packer, always a Packer.’’ There are dinners, luncheons, a tailgate bash, halftime salutes and a golf tournament. “You can’t miss Packers weekend,’’ he said. “We tell a bunch of lies and you get to see all your old teammates.’’ Hanging with Buchanon never gets stale. He knows the prep, college and pro game. He knows when someone is blowing smoke and when someone is being straight. He doesn’t take gruff, but if there’s someone with a bigger heart, I’d like to see it. Then there’s Buchanon’s sense of humor. Buchanon helped steal the show at last year’s festivities, with Ezra Johnson, among the best pass-rushers in Packers history, being honored. Dedicated Green Bay fans know Johnson for getting caught eating a hot dog during a preseason game. Then-coach Starr blew a gasket and fined Johnson $1,000, with the defensive line coach quitting in the fall out. So right before Johnson’s time in the spotlight, Buchanon sprung into action. “I brought him a bratwurst down to the sideline and he ate half of it,’’ Buchanon said. “Then when they introduced him at halftime he held up the other half to the crowd and took another bite out of it.’’ The uproar was predictable although we’re not sure Starr was smiling. But if he was close to Buchanon, how couldn’t he? Contact staff writer Jay Paris at Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports

SAN DIEGO — Jerry Attaochu received a number of phone calls from his high school football coach, his parents and friends after making his NFL debut against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night. While Attaochu, the rookie linebacker who was selected in the second round of the draft, didn’t start the game, he entered the game as a substitution and he finished the game with his first ever blocked punt and his first professional sack and caused fumble when he tackled Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer in the third quarter. It was a performance that got him nominated for rookie of the week. “Not shocking at all,” Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said of Attaochu’s performance. “If you watch the way he works everyday at practice, the way he is in meetings, the questions that he asks…he runs snap to whistle, sideline to sideline. And there’s a lot of great effort…and there’s some things he’s going to learn from the game…but you love his energy and his excitement the way he plays.” But Attaochu said on Tuesday his rookie of the week nomination wasn’t anything he was thinking about following the 18-17 loss to open

the season. McCoy said the team had every opportunity to win that football game. “Unfortunately, in the fourth quarter we didn’t play our best football in all phases of the game,” he said. “There’s some good things that came out of the game, but it just comes down to the end, like the majority of the games in the NFL, you

got to play your best football at the end.” The Chargers, visiting the University of Phoenix Stadium, held a 17-6 lead going into the fourth quarter before the Cardinals came back. The 11-point come back boiled down to the Chargers not making the plays at the end of the game, McCoy said. “A number of opportunities slipped by whether it was offensively, moving the ball in a couple of those drives, or defensively, a few breakdowns,” he added. This will be a short week for the Chargers as they begin practicing for the defending Super Bowl champions, Seattle Seahawks at Qualcomm Stadium Sunday. McCoy said the Seahawks are defending champs for a reason, noting the team’s energy and excitement they play with each week, the leadership of head coach Pete Carroll and quarterback Russell Wilson coming into his own. The Seahawks are coming off of a 36-16 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 4. “We got to go out there and put a great plan together and play a great game,” McCoy said. The Chargers announced on Wednesday that center Nick Hardwick was placed on the reserve-injured list with a neck injury and will be out for the remainder of the season.

Teen takes gold in Pan American Karate competition By Ellen Wright

CARLSBAD— While most teenagers were spending their summers soaking up the sun, 14-year-old Kacie Pou was training three to four hours a day to compete in the Olympic sanctioned Pan American karate tournament in Lima, Peru. “This summer was a whirlwind,” said Marci Pou, Kacie’s mother. Her hard work and dedication paid off. She won a gold medal in her division against competitors from 10 different nations on the USA Junior National Karate Team. “When I won, I felt on top of the world,” said Kacie Pou. This was Pou’s first time in the Pan American competition. She has been practicing karate since the age of five, according to Marci. Her father, John Pou, was a police officer in North Carolina and thought martial arts would be a good way to subdue criminals without the use of force, said Marci. He then got the whole family involved in order to teach them self-defense for nights when he was away on duty. Kacie has been practic-

ing ever since and won the gold medal in six consecutive national competitions. She spent a week in Lima with her older brother, Chase Pou and her sempei, Josa Cortez, of the East Lake Dojo. “I trained so much for it, and then when I finally got there, it went by so fast and when it was over, I was like, wow, its over so quickly,” said Kacie. Kacie said it’s great having her brother in-

volved. “It’s a lot (more fun) with him with me. Even if he’s not competing he comes to tournaments and watches me and coaches me. He’s always been there and he’s a great training partner,” said Kacie.

She and her family were able to raise $4,600 on GoFundMe to cover traveling expenses for the tournament. “We wouldn’t have TURN TO KARATE ON 18

Recruits train to lead during crucible Ceremony held for renovation of Green Beach Access Point By Cpl. Tyler Viglione

CAMP PENDLETON — Marines of Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, used teamwork and dependability to complete the Leadership Reaction Course, or 12 Stalls, during the Crucible at Edson Range aboard Camp Pendleton, Aug. 27. The Crucible is a 54hour test of endurance where recruits must conquer more than 30 different obstacles while they experience food and sleep deprivation. During the Crucible, recruits utilize small unit leadership skills they’ve acquired throughout training. “The recruits do the 12 Stalls event in the Crucible so they can learn how to work together as a team,” said Sgt. Ryan R. Ayers, field instructor, Field Company, Weapons and Field Training Battalion. “They learn how to utilize and create unit cohesion to accomplish the mission.” Before starting each event, recruits were given

guidance regarding what to complete the task. they could and could not do “Each mission has certain rules that make whatever the recruits have to do more difficult,” said Ayers, a native of San Francisco. “It requires the recruits to think more and get creative with the equipment that they have.” Each stall had a specific set of instructions, but one rule that remained the same for all stalls is that no part of a recruit’s body can touch red-colored parts of the obstacle. Touching any red simulated combat fatalities and in order to rejoin the team, the recruit had to run 100 yards with 30 pound ammunition cans. At one stall, the recruits were required to extract a simulated casualty from an area only using a plank of wood. The portions painted in red made the recruits use precision and creativity to do it successfully. “If we did not come together as a team, completing the tasks would not be possible,” said Recruit Joseph R. Campbell, Platoon 1002. The strains of sleep and

food depravation began to take a toll on the recruits. “We don’t get a lot of sleep, our bodies are tired, and we just want it to be over,” said 18-yearold Campbell. “We keep getting mad at each other, which complicates things even more, but we can’t let it get to us because we have made it this far and we are so close to being done.” Drill instructors, field instructors and the company commander watched from a platform to ensure recruits are applying the fundamentals of leadership for each mission and performing within safety regulations. Although recruits of Alpha Company have completed the Leadership Reaction Course, they still have many events to complete before earning the title Marine. “This is the only event in recruit training where recruits complete a mission as a fire team,” said 24-yearold Ayers. “Since it is something different, it requires more from them, and in the end sets them up for success.”

ENCINITAS — The council took another step toward acquiring the Pacific View site on Wednesday night. Council members voted 3-2 in favor of a $50,000 deposit and other conditions spelled out in a memorandum of understanding for the property. That document paves the way for a final purchase agreement, which the council majority hopes to approve by the end of May. But the agenda item sparked a long debate over whether the council should have even agreed to pay $10 million to acquire the site from the Encinitas Union School District.

2.3 times that price.” Eddington said. Councilman Tony Kranz, an advocate of the purchase, said the $4.3 million figure was based on the property’s current public zoning. And it was only intended as a first offer. Additionally, Kranz said he voted in favor of upping the price knowing that EUSD had a strong rezoning case, which would have made the land much more valuable. The city could have tried to fight the district’s rezone request, but that would likely have resulted in an expensive court battle, Kranz added. Last month, EUSD was due to auction Pacific View with a minimum bid set at $9.5 million. With the clock ticking, the city submitted an offer just before the deadline.

CARLSBAD — With it’s primary storefront empty for five years, the 33-year-old La Costa Towne Center at the corner of El Camino Real and La Costa Avenue is at last getting a revamp. The owner of the property gained approval to demolish two commercial structures in the shopping center and replace them with buildings that are half retail and half apartments from Carlsbad’s Planning Commission on April 16. Planning Commissioners praised the owners for coming forward with plans to redevelop the dated shopping center that they said currently lacks signage, design, and a main tenant. “(La Costa Towne Center is) just this big long white wall. You have no idea what’s inside, it’s not inviting,” said Planning Commissioner Hap L’Heureux. “This center has been long overdue.” Commissioner Aurthur Neil Black called the little mall an eyesore.

Center to be part of housing project By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — The announcement that an UrbanLIFT grant will fund building the Kay Parker Family Resource Center at the planned Mission Cove affordable housing project bought applause for two reasons. Community members were glad to have a family resource center as part of the city’s low-income housing project, and equally pleased the name of the center will honor the late Kay Parker, a beloved, fair housing advocate.

Kay’s husband Dick Parker helped accept the grant at the City Council meeting April 16. He said the honor of naming the resource center after his late wife was well deserved. The Mission Cove affordable housing and mixed-use project on Mission Avenue is being developed through a partnership between the city and National Community Renaissance nonprofit developer.

CAMP PENDLETON — A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Green Beach to commemorate the renovation of the Green Beach Access Point on Sept. 3. The Green Beach Access Point provides the only amphibious access to the Base's northern training areas, and is essential to accomplishing the mission entrusted to the Marine Corps by Congress and the American people. The renovation involved widening of the bridge at the access point and provides expanded training and tactical options to units conducting amphibious exercises within the northern mobility corridor. Prior to its renovation,

CAMP PENDLETON — Assaultmen with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, conducted a live-fire range with MK153 Shoulder-Launched Multipurpose Assault Weapons aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, August 21-22, 2014. For the Marines, the training provided extra trigger time using integrated elements such as coordinated volleys and an evaluated night portion. The 42 Marines were provided with 46 rockets to improve their abilities to manipulate, control and become comfortable their assigned weapon system. Corp. Dustin Sterr, an assaultman with 2/5, Company E said, “We’re at the beginning of our work-ups so we’re mainly working with the gun teams because for a lot of them, they’re brand new.” The junior Marines

the bridged area restricted the passage of large tactical vehicles to amphibious training areas on Green Beach and units' ability to directly travel from the sea to the inland objectives during exercises. Improvements to the access point will allow Marines and Sailors to use Green Beach as an amphibious landing site for conducting a wider range of amphibious raid exercises more frequently in preparation for supporting contingency operations across the globe. In addition, the Green Beach Access Point improvements will enhance service-specific and Joint and Combined Exercises that are now conducted from the sea.

ing companies shot most of the rounds during several repetitions with guidance from the more senior Marines. “Our new Marines were doing this for the first time and they were a little jittery, but that’s to be expected,” Lance Corporal Chance Seckinger, an assaultman with 2/5, Company F said, The Marines faced basic malfunctions when firing the weapon systems, which required immediate actions and safe disposal of the defective ordnance. “There were definitely some issues at the start like weapon malfunctions and time it took to fire, but as they started rolling through, there was an obvious improvement,” said Sterr. The assaultmen spent the weeks prior conducting academic and practical application routines to ensure safe and proficient engagement to combat inexperience. “We had classes on every subject we’ve done out here,” said Sterr. “We had demo classes, SMAW classes and even took our rockets into the ‘backyard’ and practiced gun drills.” Once the Marines establish a concrete grasp when converting their actions from the classroom to a field setting, they can transition their knowledge to other infantry roles. “Now the Marines can take the knowledge gained here back to their companies and help them when they’re relied on to engage a target with a SMAW or destroy an obstacle with demo,” said Sterr. The training will allow the Marines to perform their duties as an assaultman in any clime and place in the distant or near future.

Educational Opportunities

Local charter school is now enrolling for the new school year San Marcos — Taylion San Diego Academy is now enrolling for the new school year, with programs in home school, independent study and a virtual program serving North County. With locations in San Marcos and Vista, the charter school has a program to meet the needs of students in need of a more personalized education. The charter school opened in 2013, and has since grown to be a partner in the North County community. During its first year of existence, the school was granted accreditation by the Western Association of Schools (WASC), and has now expanded into Vista. The Taylion program is an option for students K-12, who find that a traditional school setting just isn’t a fit for them, academically or otherwise (bullies, etc.). A large number of their student population is high school students. “Kids that come to us, are for whatever reason, not thriving in a traditional public school setting,” said Taylion San Diego Academy’s Director of Business Development, Shannon Smith. “It can be for a variety of reasons: academics, socially, and they come to us where they find

We are able to take each student, assess where they are at, determine what would best help them and design a program for them individually.” Shannon Smith Director

a place where they can academically and socially thrive.” Taylion offers three separate learning environments for students: online education programs, a home-school program, and an independent study program. Programs are often blended to meet the needs of students. Some additional learning opportunities include small group instruction and online learning programs. School officials say the program offers individualized learning, a safe environment with less distraction, higher parent involvement, credit recovery, credit acceleration, greater access to new educational resources, and unparalleled flexibility in utilizing var-

ious instructional delivery methods based on the particular student’s learning style. When asked what parents should look for in a choice for education, Smith said, “I think, first of all, parents consider what their kid’s needs are. What is it that they think can help their kid to be successful, and then go look at what the options are, and that’s what is wonderful about charter schools. At Taylion San Diego Academy, we are able to customize their learning program. We offer independent study, online classes, homeschooling and a blended model. We are able to take each student, assess where they are at, determine what would best help them and design a program for them individually.” The San Marcos campus is located at 100 N. Rancho Santa Fe Rd. #110, San Marcos, CA 92069, while the Vista site is located at 1661-B South Melrose Drive, Vista, CA 92081.

Academy of Arts and Sciences...

A leader in the frontier of educational options For students who fall behind, AAS can help turn things around with our award winning credit recovery courses. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that students receive credit for what they already know and supports them with dedicated teachers that will build mastery in the areas they need to complete their courses. Our credit recovery courses are available free of charge during the school year and as part of our free summer school as well. Credit recovery courses are available in all core subject areas (Math, English, Science and Social Studies and some elective areas). Academy of Arts and Sciences is a leader in the newest frontier of educational options: online learning. AAS, a leading free public charter school of choice for students in grades K-12, offers a blended (online and on site) customized learning program. Students engage in an exceptional learning experience that blends innovative online learning with critical face-to-face and lab time. At Academy of Arts and Sciences, students will be able to access a diverse range of Arts and Science electives. “We understand that students learn best when their education is tailored to

their needs, which is why a key tenant of the Academy of Arts & Sciences philosophy is flexibility,” said CEO Sean McManus. “With this instructional model, on site and off site time can be adjusted to fit individual student needs. The flexibility of blended learning provides choice for students.” The school utilizes cutting edge 21st century curriculum. Students are able to access the curriculum twenty four hours a day, and have the flexibility to participate in a wide variety of events, activities and experiences that enhance the learning experience. AAS also allows students the opportunity to access a wide variety of world language, humanities, media and technology, engineering and robotics, app and game design as part of the rich elective program. Online learning differs from traditional schools in that classes do not take place in a building, but rather at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection

can be found. Because of this, students take courses online with support from their teacher via phone, online Web meetings, and sometimes even face to face. This new way of learning allows the parent to take an active role in the student’s learning and to really become a partner with their child. The parent (or "Learning Coach") keeps the student on track in line with the provided lessons plans. In addition to the online courses, AAS provides plenty of opportunities to connect online and offline with other AAS students and families. The Academy of Arts and Sciences staff is very active in the community and can often be found interacting with families at Beach Clean Up Days, various community festivals, and organized activities that take place at their Learning Centers. An online education offers students the opportunities to learn in a small setting with a course schedule that is tailored to meet their individual learning styles and needs. This unique learning environment meets the needs of all types of learners and offers solutions to many different educational challenges. Many students find that learning in the comfort of their own home allows them be successful in ways never dreamt of before!

had a job early in my career that took me to Texas on a regular basis and I always made it a point to seek out a roadside diner and order up chicken fried steak or country fried steak as it’s known in some parts. Before that, it was somewhat of a mystery dish to me ‌ was it chicken or steak, or both? Well, I figured that out and have since learned that there are many variations of this pounded and breaded cutlet and they each have their own unique characteristics. The Austrian dish Wiener Schnitzel and the Italian-Latin dish Milanesa are two of those variations. Milanesa is a tenderized veal or pork cutlet, coated with flour, eggs and breadcrumbs then fried. It’s also similar to the recipe for Scottish collups. Juanita’s and several other Mexican joints around town offer up their unique versions of Milanesa. Juanita’s serves a hearty portion and is a nice value as a combo plate. Tip Top in Carlsbad is a great source for many German-influenced schnitzel variations. My local go-to sources for chicken fried steak include Captain Keno’s, Encinitas CafĂŠ and Denny’s. Captain Keno’s is the best value at $3.49, a price that seems to have been in place since way back.

Middle grade book club begins ESCONDIDO — Escondido Public Library’s Read, Eat, and Discuss (R.E.A.D.) Middle Grade Book Club for students 9 through 12 years old, kicks off this fall with a discussion of Raina Telgemeier’s “Sisters,” the companion novel to “Smile.” The Book Club meets in the library’s Turrentine Room from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at 239 S.

And of course Oklahoma, which has been known to borrow a few ideas from Texas, has included it in their official state meal. All I know is that growing up in Michigan, I never heard of it. With all these regional variations, there are as many ways to prepare it. I’ll stick to a basic preparation then talk a bit about ways I’ve enhanced it and will be preparing it at my upcoming Country Fried GRUEL dinner Sept. 20 at the Encinitas American Legion. Basic preparation includes starting with a thin cut of flank or cube steak and tenderizing it by pounding, cubing or forking. Then it’s immersed in egg batter or broth and dredged in seasoned flour. I use broth in place of the egg as it then

serves double duty as a base for the gravy. What you season it in is up to you, but salt and pepper are key. I tend to add some Cajun seasoning or similar to give it a little kick. After that it’s frying time and that is done best in black cast iron skillet with butter, lard or shortening. This is not a health food dish folks, go with oil that will contribute to the flavor. My go-to is butter as again, it is going to contribute to the gravy after frying the steaks all crispy. Which brings me to my favorite part of the chicken fried steak experience, the gravy. Remember that butter and broth I mentioned above? Mix it with flour, broth, cream and sage and for good measure I like to add some cooked breakfast sausage. I’ve also substituted chipotle for the sage to give it more or a Southwest flair. Sides can include anything from biscuits to mashed potatoes and some

type of sautéed greens. It should be noted that chicken fried steak makes for a great breakfast with a couple of fried eggs to accompany it.

members from different sections of the neighborhood to share their complicated lives. As always, the inclusion of a noir atmosphere never ceases to impress me in stories where criminals are a prominent element. Especially when it imbues such a film as this with a slow buildup, gradually exuding tension that culminates in acts of violence. And what’s just as impressive is this: the violent moments finish as quickly as they start, never resorting to excess. That being said, I did have a slight initial concern regarding the sense of danger, which, in terms of intensity, tended to oscillate from storyline to storyline, making one seem more foreboding than the other at times. As much as this appeared to be an error that could’ve potentially compromised the film, that outcome never materialized. Another important fac-



sure that will be coming up in November is the decision for the city to become a charter city, Prop G. The two current councilmembers and Hunziker think the city should make the switch to a charter city and all the other candidates oppose it, with the exception of Rick Paul. “It’s an empty document that doesn’t change anything,” said Paul, “It should be left to the voters.” Gallo supports the

Sept. 12, 2014 tor I should mention is the international cast itself, all of whom bring a subtle complexity to their characters. It’s hard not to appreciate Hardy; he provides the film with an emotional resonance by infusing his withdrawn Bob Saginowski with an unassuming heart, buried underneath layers of self-imposed isolation. Gandolfini has the honor of getting to say the best lines of dialogue and, as the streetwise Cousin Marv, turns in an engaging, nuanced performance that concludes his legacy on a high note. Rapace succeeds in connecting with Nadia’s wounded and tough sides, and her chemistry with Hardy is convincing; I wouldn’t be surprised if their puppy had something to do with it. As for Schoenaerts, his understated presence is downright sinister; making the transformation from abusive neighbor to ugly antagonist is not easy, and his use of unspoken threats to get his point across is brilliant.

Like I said earlier, “The Drop” is liable to attract members of the community who are passionate about art-house/alternative material, so unless you fit that moviegoing mold, you’d best wait until it becomes available on the rental market. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a quality film (and Gandolfini’s last); however, as for seeing it on the big screen…well, that’s up to you. Regardless of the decision you make, “The Drop” will not disappoint. It is criminally dark and full of suspense, and has a beautiful relationship drama at its core — and marks the final time we will ever get to see James Gandolfini on the big screen.

move to a charter city. “We’re the only city in North County that is not a charter city,” said Gallo. He blamed cities going bankrupt on bad fiscal policy and said becoming a charter city will not risk the city’s financial stability. Hunziker said he is tired of unfunded mandates coming down from the state and believes the move to a charter city will give more power to the local government. Masson also supports the city becoming a charter city. The other candidates

were against it. “Becoming a charter is risky, expensive and unnecessary. It gives politicians more power to raise taxes,” said Downey. Martinez was also against it, she said, because the voters did not approve it two years ago and she doesn’t believe it needs to be on the ballot again. Voters in District 1 will decide between Martinez and incumbent Gallo. District 2 voters will choose between incumbent Masson, Hunziker, Downey and Paul.

time that might not be energy efficient,” she said. “We think there’s still a lot of opportunities in San Diego to help revitalize and redevelop certain areas.” And as new projects emerge, that’s when they’re going to need help. For the past three years, H.G. Fenton has been offering internships to Trade Tech’s students. Travis Hamlin, a senior at the school took part in one of those internships this summer. He finished the internship having met a lot of great people, he said, and with the hopes

that on graduating, he’ll be hired on with the company. So far, H.G. Fenton has hosted five interns, hiring one to join the company. Hamlin, who came to the school during his sophomore year, said he was drawn to the fields of construction and engineering. He said that he wouldn’t really get to participate fully in those fields if he’d gone to a traditional high school. Ultimately, he added, his dream job is to be working somewhere high up at H.G. Fenton. “Seeing this kind of additional opportunity and training opportunities for young people is a boon

to Vista and a boon to the region,” said Vista Councilman Dave Cowles, a former educator. Deputy Mayor John Aguilera agreed, adding that of all of the different changes that have happened over the last few decades in education, which has cut out some of the opportunities for students, Aguilera said Trade Tech now offers for the children in the community. “Some kids that don’t desire or need to go to fouryear education, this is a great opportunity for them to get that alternate education that’s going to make them successful in the community,” he said.

Nonprofit is seeking to uncover the ‘Hidden Treasures’ of a community By Tony Cagala

ENCINITAS — Everybody has a story to tell, whether they get to tell them or want to is an entirely different one altogether. “Either a leader is hidden, or the story is hidden,” said Lois Sunrich, the founder of the nonprofit group StoryArts. After 25 years of work helping others to tell their stories and writing her own through journaling, Sunrich, she said, is getting to the age where she’s ready to find out what the final legacy of that work is going to be. In what started as an experiment several years ago, Sunrich and a group of about 50 other women embarked on collecting their stories during the turning point of the last decade in the millennium with the idea, Sunrich explained, of passing the stories on to future generations. That was back in 1990. And now, Sunrich has a new project in telling the stories of unsung locals in the community. She’s calling the project “Hidden Treasures.” “I really wanted to go out into the community and with everything we’ve learned, and the models we’ve created as a community of memoir making, life story telling people…see if we could offer what we’ve learned to our hometown, to Encinitas, and collect stories right here,” she said. Those selected (there will be five chosen because of the five communities in Encinitas) will be paired with emerging local artists that will in turn help to create an art-filled book. The Hidden Treasures project, which is in the fundraising phase, (it’s the first time Sunrich’s StoryArts nonprofit organization is reaching out to the public for funds), will need $25,000 to complete the project. So far, Sunrich said they’ve raised half of the money, and is hoping to have the remainder of the funds raised by April. “If the community wants to help fund it, that makes them really the owners of it,” she said. “We’re not looking for large funds from a small group of people, we’re looking for everybody to pitch in whatever they can,” she said. Sunrich said the five “hidden treasures” haven’t been located yet, but they’re looking for those whose stories will have a lot of diversity and variety, and also a lot of heart and depth. None of the artists have been selected yet, and either will they or the subjects be announced until the unveiling of the works later next year, something that Sunrich said is part of the theater of the project. At the initial fundraiser held at a private home in Encinitas on Sunday, attendees, that included such names as

County Supervisor Dave Roberts, Encinitas council members Tony Kranz and Lisa Shaffer got a glimpse of what the Hidden Treasures project was all about. Fifth generation Encinitas resident Tom Cozens, attended the event, too. He told his own story of Jan Grice (they share a connection through the Hammond family), but while Grice might be well-known in the community and for her work with the San Dieguito Heritage Museum, Cozens was surprised to learn something new about her that day. Cozens had no idea that Grice wrote poetry. “That was a total surprise to me,” he said. “It just helped open up my eyes more to her as a person.” Cozens said that hearing people’s stories is incredible valuable. “People in general, just need to be reminded, espe-

cially in today’s age, that there’s a tremendous amount that gets done, that benefits the community by people we never see and often don’t even know — are neighbor next door,” Cozens said. He said that people need to be aware of that, and hopefully inspired by it. “For me, I love hearing about people that care,” he said. “Too often we look for the city, or somebody to get a paycheck to go and do it, when we’re fully capable, and often can do a better job quicker, if we just do it,” he said. “The whole idea of what StoryArts is about is community building,” Sunrich said. “When people share the stories, it is extremely powerful for the person who shares the story, but what we found is that it’s also extremely powerful for whoever they tell their story to.” To make donations, visit

In 2012, Macy Gray went on tour as a vocalist for jazz saxophonist and former World Saxophone Quartet member David Murray and his big band. It became an eye-opening experience that she feels is having an impact on the show she will deliver this fall as she tours behind her soonto-be-released new album, “The Way.” “I think the main thing is it kind of turned me on to a certain caliber of musicians. Jazz musicians are kind of a whole other planet of musicians’ skill,” Gray said, as she looked back on the tour with Murray in an early September phone interview. “It just raised the bar for me as far as the musicians that I wanted to be around, and just the level of excellence on stage, to be really not only entertaining, but just to be really, really good at what you do.” In a larger sense, Gray seems to have gained better control of her career, her music — and her life — as she prepares to release “The Way.” In fact, “The Way” finds Gray sounding much like the artist wowed the public on her 1999 debut album, “How Life Is,” drawing on influences that include hip-hop, rock, R&B, jazz and soul to create a gritty, grooving, highly intoxicating sound that smartly blurs the lines between urban and rock genres. Gray thinks there’s a particular reason why she was able to be especially true to herself on the new album. “I didn’t have a lot of people in my ear telling me what I should do and what I shouldn’t do and what I should try this time and I needed to change things up,” she said in her famous raspy voice. “So that was the difference. I wasn’t attached to a label when I started this record, so that was a different freedom and no kind of like suggestions or advice. It was just me who I was in the studio with, and we got to do whatever we wanted.” As Gray suggests, her career had gone off track since the early years. It began emphatically, of course, with “How Life Is.’ Fueled by the smash hit single “I Try,” the debut went
