ENCINITAS — A recent inclusionary housing item discussed last month in the Encinitas Planning Commission is now being recommended to be removed from the agenda by city staff. A city official has confirmed the move but said the item is expected to be re-noticed for a future meeting. “When it says ‘off-calendar’ it just means we don’t have a date certain and we’re going to re-notice it for the planning commission,” said Jennifer Gates, principal planner for the project. The item included TURN TO AGENDA ON A17

was presented to the board but none showed interest in joining so early, even before their service has begun. “I think it’s worth us investigating,” said Chair Kristi Becker, of Solana Beach. “I feel that we need to be on our feet a little bit more though. I would be into investigating and maybe gathering some more facts.” Fellow board members Priya Bhat-Patel, councilwoman of Carlsbad, and David Drucker, Del Mar councilman, agreed they had a possible interest in joining in the future. “I would agree that we should continue to explore this,” Drucker said. “I’m also really interested in their first project which is this energy storage.

REGION — A court declined Monday to comRANCHO pel Oceanside Unified and San Marcos Unified school SFNEWS districts to speed their COVID-related reopening plans, on the basis that compulsion would unjustifiably inhibit the legitimate exercise of their legislative authority. The decision represents the latest development in an ongoing lawsuit, filed in February by activist parents seeking eased COVID-19 restrictions and an accelerated return from virtual to physical classrooms. In an initial hearing last month, Superior Court Judge Cynthia Freeland decided largely in the parents’ favor, as The Coast News reported at the time. Based on constitutional equal protection, she prohibited certain state restrictions and ordered defendant school districts “to reopen their schools for in-person instruction to the greatest extent possible at the earliest practicable time,” according to her temporary ruling. Carlsbad Unified, Vista Unified and San Dieguito Union High school district boards subsequently voted to expand in-person secondary instruction by midApril, or sooner. Freeland heard arguments again April 8, with the parents’ counsel saying Oceanside Unified and San Marcos Unified school districts were continuing to dally, citing the statutory requirement that districts “shall offer in-person instruction to the greatest ex-

Clean Energy Alliance will launch to customers in Solana Beach, Del Mar and Carlsbad on May 1 but at a meeting last month, the board was given a presentation on the potential partnership with a joint powers authority (JPA) made up of cities in northern California. “The benefits of CC Power to the CEA are it provides economies of scale in regards to procurement of energy and different power supply sources,” said Barbara Boswell, interim chief executive officer for Clean Energy Alliance. “It does enhance negotiating power because of the volume of procurements that would

Fairgrounds gives updates on scaled-down county fair By Bill Slane

DEL MAR — Despite the goal set by Governor Gavin Newsom to open up California by June 15, the Del Mar Fairgrounds is still set to go with its scaleddown “Homegrown Fun” fair event this summer. Homegrown Fun: Presented by the San Diego County Fair was announced by the fairgrounds last month at the regular meeting of the 22nd District Agricultural Association board meeting. The event will largely focus on agriculture and food stands fairgoers normally expect from the fair with some retail. With Gov. Newsom targeting a June 15 date to open up more sectors of the state economy and lift the state’s colored tier system for the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the fairgrounds will still opt for

This will be great for kids to come and learn about farming.” Katie Mueller Del Mar Fairgrounds

the scaled back event. “The San Diego County Fair requires many, many months of planning to put on all of the different aspects of that program,” said Katie Mueller, chief business services operator at the fairgrounds. “We usually start with a budget in August or September and we hit the ground running for the planning for the following year’s fair.” So even with the expected reduction in regulations and requirements for events like the fair coming in the near future, there would not nearly be enough time to plan for a larger event, according to the fairgrounds. A large portion of the fairgrounds is also expected to continue to be used as a vaccination superstation through the summer. “Because we are committed to serving the community as a vaccination su-

perstation, that takes up a fairly large footprint of the fairgrounds,” Mueller said. The event will feature no more than 30 food stands and both indoor and outdoor vendor spaces. San Diego County is currently under the orange which means that there will not be restrictions for the capacity of Bing Crosby Hall, Seaside Pavillion or the Exhibit Hall. There will be no midway at this event but there are some planned attractions for visitors such as dog shows, pig races and more. With the focus of this event on agriculture there will also be an area called “Agri-Land” that will serve as an educational area for children. “This will be great for kids to come and learn about farming,” Mueller said. “There will be a pedal tractor activity, Homelandia Dairy will be presenting cow milking demonstrations.” None of the usual large carnival rides will be present at the event but Mueller says they are attempting to bring a ferris wheel and carousel pending more approval and guidelines from the county. The fairgrounds is still in the process of finalizing their COVD-19 health plan before submitting it to the county for approval. During the fair board meeting, Director Frederick Schenk, who serves as the chair of the fair operations committee for the board, offered praise for the planning team who continue to deal with many obstacles in the preparation for this event. “What a tremendous undertaking in such a short window,” Schenck said. “And with a moving target which it has been constantly. I know all of the wonder and uncertainty that has been part of this process.” President Richard Valdez also expressed the board’s intention to try and change plans as much as they can as the pandemic situation changes. Homegrown Fun will open its gates on June 11 and run through July 4 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and tickets will go on sale May 1.

CARLSBAD — City facilities will join the Clean Energy Alliance under the default program after the Carlsbad City Council approved the item during its April 13 meeting. The council set the default program for residents under the Clean Impact Plus model several weeks ago amid controversy. The program, the CEA board and employees say, will deliver 50% renewable and 75% carbon-free energy to customers. The item was approved 4-0 as Councilmember Cori Schumacher was absent from the meeting. During the April 13 meeting, Councilmembers Priya Bhat-Patel and Teresa Acosta lobbied for city facilities to fall under the Green Impact for what they say is a 100% renewable power supply. However, there would have been no cost savings, but instead an estimated increase of $56,250. Councilmember Keith Blackburn took a hard stance against the Green Impact option, echoed by Mayor Matt Hall. “We selected Clean Impact Plus for the community,” he said. “It’s still technically the communi-

ty and they are the ones paying the bill.” Of the three options, the CEA staff estimated cost savings, for the rest of 2021, at $25,000 for the Clean Impact Plus or $37,500 for the Clean Impact program. The facilities joining the CEA include City Hall, the Faraday Center, The Crossing at Carlsbad Golf Course, the Maerkle Reservoir, Carlsbad Municipal Water District Offices, Alga Norte Community Park and police and fire headquarters, according to Jason Haber, the city’s intergovernmental affairs director. He added if the city wanted to opt out of the CEA after the 60-day window from the May 1 launch date, there would be an additional fee. “CEA does not charge customers any fees for opting out, regardless of when the customer requests to opt-out,” said CEA Execu-

tive Director Barbara Boswell. “SDG&E does charge customers a ‘re-entry fee’ if a customer opts out more than 60-days after enrolling in a CCA. The current fee is $1.12 per account.” Bhat-Patel and said the city should push forward in a “bold” direction to be a leader in the region. She said she believes the city could claim environmental credits toward its Climate Action Plan and despite the cost increase, the city could recoup “from other avenues.” Acosta said the cost increase is not too much as she wants to be part of a clean and green city. Both council members said they hope there is an opportunity to readdress the selection and opt-up at a future date. “I believe in walking the walk as much as possi-

ble,” Acosta said. “I would pay that little extra more, and it’s not a lot, for 100% renewable.” The CEA, however, came under fire during the City Council’s March 9 meeting where it was announced customers would not save 2% on their total bill, as had been long promoted by the CEA and its advocates. Instead, staff and others said the Community Choice Aggregation program would save 2% on generation costs. Regardless, the CEA has come up short on those, too. For the Clean Impact program, customers would save just 0.6% and the Clean Impact Plus savings pegged at 0.9%. As for the Green Impact program, it comes with additional monthly fees of $2.30 and $7.90 for residential and small commercial customers, respectively, according to the March 9 staff report.

We need more fun and less funny business at Del Mar Fair

T

By John Moot

he 22nd Agricultural Association, a State agency that runs the county fair, recently announced there would be no carnival games, rides, or its quixotic food offerings at this year’s Fair. In its place would be “Homegrown Fun” a scaled down agricultural themed event. With the County now in the orange tier and the Padres welcoming back fans and outdoor events scaling up for live concerts why a no-fun Fair? Could the answer be related to the swirling controversy covered in a recent UT article regarding contracts at the Del Mar Fair and its inability to award contracts for the food stands, rides, and games on the Fair’s Midway. Since 2018 the Fair’s RFP (request for proposal) process has resulted in two canceled contracts, a successful protest granted by the California Dept. of General Services and in between a non-bid contract arranged behind closed doors that threatened the livelihood of the Fair’s traditional game operators. After attempting to award a digital ticketing system to a company owned by one of the country’s largest carnival operator’s son, the 2018 RFP was canceled. A protest was filed because the son’s business did not have the required All Risk Insurance. Instead of awarding the contract to the qualified company that had the insurance, the Fair awarded a no-bid contract to the carnival company owned by the parents for the ticketing system and 80% of all the carnival games! The victims of the nobid contract were the small business who competed for the best games on the carnival Midway. In 2019, the Fair sent out an RFP that was im-

mediately challenged as being written exclusively for the large carnival operator, RCS, who got the nobid contract in 2018. Those opposing the 2019 contract also pointed out the Fair would almost certainly make less money as well. A protest to the award of the contract in 2019 was granted by Dept. of General Services, something that rarely happens. The reason the protest was granted was that RCS’s subcontractors were not licensed to do business in California. In 2020, the Fair doubled down this time again awarding a contract to RCS for all the games, rides and food on the Midway, a contract worth $75 million to $80 million. This contract did not even make it to a protest hearing. A competitor bidder, Talley Amusements, filed a protest pointing out that for the second year in a row the Fair staff voted to award the contract to RCS despite RCS again failing to establish all its subcontractors were licensed in California. Faced with this protest the Fair simply canceled the RFP. This was instead of awarding the contract to Talley Amusements, who meet all the terms of the

RFP and with the new orange tier could have provided physical distanced games, rides and food for this year’s Fair. Even more shocking is Talley’s financial bid was $9.5 million more over the 5-year life of the contract. When the process of how the contracts were awarded was reviewed, “scoring mistakes” were discovered that after being corrected, showed that the contract should have been awarded to Talley in the first instance. The purpose of competitive bidding is to get the best deal for the public and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. Government employees in high ranking positions are supposed to File Form 700s to disclose financial interests; yet in at least one instance no such disclosure appears to have been made in 2018 and 2019. If true, isn’t time stop the fun(ny) business and games at the Fair and bring some much-needed reform to the contracting system for this little-known State agency? John Moot is the attorney for All State Inc. and Talley Amusements, who successfully challenged the 22nd DAA contract awards.

arely has the “big lie” technique been used against an American state as effectively and persistently as with the myth of a great and unique California exodus over the last few years. The Economist, a London-based magazine whose reportage on California almost always contains errors, reported last fall that California lost population between 2018 and 2019. False. The recently departed president, who detested California for its solid and repeated vote margins against him, tweeted disparagingly about California more than 600 times over his four-year term, most of his “information” false. Even the Los Angeles Times titled a recent story “California in the rearview mirror.” It’s part of a pattern reminiscent of the “big lie” technique outlined in the 1930s by Nazi German propaganda minister Josef Goebbels, who observed that, “The bigger the lie and the louder and more often it is told, the more people will believe it.” But lies only survive until facts emerge. And the facts don’t support the myth of a great California exodus. One magazine reported last fall that California lost more than 3% of its populace to other states over the last year. Not so. In fact, about 175,000 California residents moved to other states in 2020. That’s about four-tenths of 1%. The departures were more than made up for in new births and legal foreign immigration, which created a 21,200 person population increase from July 1, 2019, to July 1, 2020, reports the state Department of Finance. One reason the population increase wasn’t much:

the coronavirus pandemic, which caused job losses pretty much preventing anyone who moved here from finding employment. So in-migration from other states all but stopped and will not fully resume until the plague fully ends, or at least until enough folks are vaccinated to end the deadly threat of the virus. Then there’s the notion that net out-migration to other states never before matched the numbers of the last decade. Not so. The nonpartisan state Legislative Analyst’s office (LAO) issued charts in 2018 showing domestic outmigration in the 1990-95 period far exceeded anything in the last five years. In 1993 alone, about 600,000 persons left California, while only about 300,00 came here. The difference was vastly exceeded by the foreign immigration tide of that time, giving California substantial net growth. Take a look at who has been most active in perpetrating the ongoing big lie about California. Business relocation agents were the first to promote it, writing op-ed after op-ed about the “vast advantages” for businesses that move elsewhere. A Texas state agency has also produced numerous commentaries touting that state’s tax breaks for incoming businesses, which famously induced the likes of Oracle Corp. and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise to move headquarters there from Silicon Valley. The last previous move of similar magnitude involved

Toyota Motor Corp.’s American headquarters, which in 2014 went from the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance to Plano, Texas, near Dallas. Then there’s the L.A. Times narrative, which depicted numerous recent California arrivals unable to afford comfortable housing here and leaving for cheaper hunting grounds. That’s partially correct, and is largely because even as rents dropped over the last year in California’s big cities during the pandemic, with white collar employees shifting to working at home, rents and home prices in exurbs of Los Angeles and San Francisco rose steeply. In fact, statewide average real estate prices gained about 8% over the last year, at the same time governments were impelling the creation of thousands of “affordable” apartments, condominiums and single-family homes. Yes, California has problems, including often-clumsy government (recent example: the slow start of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout) and high income taxes (often made up for by lower-than-average property taxes). But that has not stopped startup companies from proliferating, nor does it lessen the state’s attraction for higher-income, better educated workers. The LAO charts demonstrated that California has actually gained ground over most other states in those categories in the last decade. So not to worry too much, Californians. This state has a long history of solving its problems and chances are it will again as new Googles and Facebooks and Hulus and eBays keep arising. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

SANDAG adopts pro-union resolution in contentious vote By Dan Brendel

REGION — In what some see as ideological bulldozing, SANDAG’s governing board narrowly passed a resolution on April 9 favoring unions in big-dollar regional infrastructure planning, making one exception for non-union African American contractors. SANDAG, a countywide agency governed by elected municipal officials, oversees transportation planning and serves as a kind of gatekeeper for federal funding. It’s currently in the process of prioritiz-

ing major transportation investments, recently estimated at $163 billion over 30 years. Last Friday’s resolution instructs SANDAG staff, when drafting a related planning document for the board’s later deliberation, to “consider … local workforce and careers in construction for our region through Project Labor Agreements,” or PLAs. These are collective bargaining agreements between a trade union and contractor for a given construction project. The resolution also em-

phasizes the role of “joint labor-management” apprenticeship programs — which are union-affiliated — to “promote labor stability for a diverse local workforce.” Apprenticeship programs train junior tradespeople, such as carpenters and plumbers, to reach the “journeyman” level of professional certification. Non-union apprenticeship programs also exist. These are administered by contractors who hire and train their own workers, but not under a collective bargaining agreement with a

union. For comparison, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), a union, and the Western Electrical Contractors Association (WECA) offer similar apprenticeship programs. SANDAG’s verbiage would include only the former’s, according to WECA’s Richard Markuson. Although there can be some crossover between the two kinds of programs. Overall, the state has 1,324 apprenticeship programs run by 534 sponsors, of which 225 include a union

component and 309 do not, the California Department of Industrial Relations told The Coast News. These union-related clauses represent only non-binding guidance to SANDAG staff; the board will vote on labor agreements for specific construction projects as they take shape. Nevertheless, they dragged contentious deliberations past midnight and prompted certain representatives to leave the meeting early. For their part, PLAs have long been a lightning

rod.

A coalition of organizations, including several local unions, wrote to the SANDAG in favor, saying PLAs help ensure “transportation projects are creating high-quality careers in construction in our region.” Others say PLAs are unfair because they exclude certain firms and workers from major public works projects, among other reasons. “With all this infrastructure coming in, we TURN TO SANDAG ON A9

San Diego County pauses Johnson & Johnson vaccines By City News Service

REGION — Following federal guidance, San Diego County has stopped administering Johnson & Johnson single-dose COVID-19 vaccines, as county public health officials reported 278 new coronavirus infections and two deaths. “The health and safety of San Diego County residents is our number one priority, and, in an abundance of caution, we are pausing use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine while state and national authorities thoroughly investigate these reports,” Dr. Wilma Wooten, San Diego County’s public health officer, said Tuesday. Earlier Tuesday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration recommended states pause use of the one-dose vaccine after six women between the ages of 18 and 48 developed a “rare and severe” blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, according to a joint statement from the agencies. The women developed the clots six to 13 days after receiving a Johnson & Johnson vaccine. One of the women died. Around 6.85 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine have been administered in the Unit-

ed States, including about 58,000 in San Diego County. No known severe adverse effects to the vaccine have been reported in the region. For San Diegans who got the vaccine more than a month ago, the risk is very low, officials said. For San Diegans who recently got the vaccine — within the last

few weeks — they should be aware of any symptoms. People who develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain or shortness of breath were urged to contact their health care provider and seek immediate medical treatment. “San Diegans should continue to get vaccinated with a Pfizer or Moderna

vaccine, which are now being used at the clinics that offered the Johnson & Johnson vaccine,” Wooten said. Tuesday’s statistics increased the region’s cumulative totals from throughout the pandemic to 273,708 infections and 3,623 fatalities. Hospitalizations due to the virus increased to 174 from Monday’s reported

158. Of those, intensive care patients increased to 55 from 48. There are 53 available, staffed ICU beds in the county. Of the 12,404 test results reported Tuesday, 2% returned positive. The 14day rolling average of positive tests is 2%. More than 2.1 million COVID-19 vaccine doses

have been delivered to San Diego County, according to the county Health & Human Services Agency, and 1,181,876 county residents — or 44% — have received at least one dose. The county reported a total of 719,723 people in the San Diego area — or 26.8% — are fully vaccinated. The numbers include both county residents and those who only work in the region. The state’s goal is to vaccinate 75% of people 16 and older to achieve so-called herd immunity — equating to around 2.02 million San Diego County residents. The San Diego Fire Department announced Monday appointments areavailable at the Balboa Municipal Gym for the Moderna vaccine on Wednesday. Appointments can be made at www.sandiego.gov/ covid-19-vaccination. Scripps Health, which operates the Del Mar Fairgrounds Vaccination Super Station, announced Monday morning that the vaccination site will be closed Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday because of low vaccine supply. Patients who have appointments scheduled on those dates will be rescheduled automatically through the MyTurn online appointment system.

San Marcos Unified faces backlash over refusal to fully reopen By Tigist Layne

SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) is facing criticism from hundreds of parents, community members and members of the Parent Association of North County over its noncompliance with a judge’s order to reopen schools. Last month, a group of North County parents, with the help of the Parent Association of North County, sued the state to overturn COVID-19 restric-

tions that prevented school districts from fully reopening for in-person learning. Superior Court Judge Cynthia Freeland, who’s presiding over the lawsuit, sided largely with the parents and compelled districts “to reopen their schools for in-person instruction to the greatest extent possible at the earliest practicable time.” SMUSD and Oceanside Unified are the only two named defendants who have not fully resumed in-person learning since the order. SMUSD has recently returned middle and high school students back to campus just two days a week, but has not shown any indication of reopening fully this school year. Hundreds of parents and community members

have taken to social media to demand a return to in-person learning full time, including a Facebook group called San Marcos Families for Opening Schools, which has 745 members and is growing by the day. Freeland on Thursday heard from SMUSD’s attorney who maintains that it is up to the district to decide when and how to return students to campus. “The statute — 43504(b) [of the state’s Education Code] — does not say, ‘Districts shall offer full-time, five-day-a-week in-person instruction,’” San Marcos Unified’s attorney Amy Estrada said. “The statute says, ‘[A local educational agency shall offer in-person instruction] to the greatest extent possible,’ and therefore it still involves an exercise of discretion.” “Each district is very

They're different in terms of their facilities, they're different in terms of their staff capacities in terms of when they conducted recruitment or what problems they're having in human resources with getting people to apply for a job,” Estrada continued, “Currently, the assessments are showing that it's currently too unsafe to expand beyond two days a week, at least at the secondary level.” Lee Andelin, one of the attorney’s representing the parents, argued during Thursday’s proceedings that reopening to the “greatest extent possible” means reopening fully because that is the standard for learning. “The standard is in person learning. The school shall offer in person learning, they may offer distance learning, but only in certain narrow circumstances. But the school districts, they simply have been in this situation so long. Schools have lost sight of that and have sort of inverted that,” Andelin said. “Listening to counsel’s arguments, it’s almost as though that's inverted, and the standard has become distance learning.” SMUSD Interim Superintendent Dr. Tiffany Campbell told The Coast News via email that the district’s large student

population poses challenges when it comes to fully reopening. “Larger student populations mean more teachers and support staff on campus,” Campbell said. “The large number of students we have will likely require us to hire more teachers and staff to adequately supervise students and meet capacity limitations in classrooms in a very short amount of time.” The district also said that it is scheduled to receive approximately $40 million in new state/federal COVID-19 relief funds. “While the spending plan for the new stimulus funding is still a work in progress, the funding will support in-person instruction, accelerated learning to address learning gaps, supplemental learning supports, logistics support, and offset any general fund expenditures attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Campbell said. Kimberly Imhoff, an SMUSD parent and member of the Parents Association, told The Coast News that parents haven’t received a clear answer on why those funds aren’t being used to reopen schools as soon as possible. “They were saying it's too expensive, that[they] would have to hire more teachers, and to me, the big question is, the school

district got over $40 million in COVID relief money from the government, so where's that money going?” Imhoff said. “The point of that money was to provide all of the things that are needed to get kids back on campus, PPE hand-washing stations, things like that. So, to us, it seems like it's now an excuse.” Dr. Campbell told The Coast News that while cost is a factor, it is not the district’s primary concern; recruiting and hiring credentialed teachers and qualified staff is a far greater concern. SMUSD’s next scheduled board meeting is April 20, but it is unclear if this issue will be on the agenda. Imhoff told The Coast News that almost 200 parents signed a letter to the board requesting a special board meeting before April 20, but have not received a response. “We have a fear that if they don't reopen fully during this current school year, that there’s a chance they won't open fully,” Imhoff said. “The real question is why not do it now? We have about eight weeks left of the school year and we just think it's important that we move now and not just sit and wait on it because there doesn't seem to be a logical reason why.”

Stop signs to be removed from highway intersection By Grant Kessler

CSUSM begins process of cutting ties with controversial former state senator By Tigist Layne

SAN MARCOS — Faculty representatives at California State University at San Marcos (CSUSM) voted April 7 to begin the process of cutting school ties with the controversial late State Sen. William A. Craven, including renaming buildings and streets, and removing his bust monument from campus. The university’s Academic Senate voted 56-2-2 in favor of removing any signs of Craven, known for his reportedly anti-immigrant and white supremacist ideologies, from the school grounds. It is unclear which senators supported or opposed the motion as the voting system is anonymous. The resolution, which was proposed by University without Borders collectively, called for the renaming of Craven Hall, Craven Circle and Craven Road and the removal of the bust of William Craven from the campus. “To continue its commitment to racial inclusion, and to advance its vital work to promote diversity, racial and social justice in meaningful ways, CSUSM should make the effort now to eliminate from the campus symbols that honor individuals who advocated nativism and white supremacy, in particular, the former California State Senator William A. Craven,” said the proposal. Craven’s reported comments date back to as early as 1991 when he spearheaded an attempt to learn the financial impact that undocumented immigrants have on schools and public agencies in San Diego County. The Oceanside Republican, whose early political career included a seat on

the County Board of Supervisors, wrote to every school district and city in the county and to county officials, asking them to do a headcount of suspected undocumented immigrants who use public services. In March 1993, Craven also came under fire for reportedly stating in the San Diego Union-Tribune that migrant workers were on a lower scale of humanity. In October of 1994, he advocated for the state legislature’s exploration of requiring all Latinx residents to carry ID cards to prove citizenship. Craven is quoted in the San Diego Union-Tribune as saying, “I think basically when people talk about it, they’re thinking of what I would have to say in a sort of an encompassing sense (is about) Hispanics.” “As a Chicano, as a former undocumented immigrant with no citizenship status, it’s very disturbing to see that our university has held and embraced this image and this person for many years, without taking into account the community,” said Dr. Xuan Santos, an associate professor at CSUSM. “We have a senator that really believed that we need to treat other people with indifference, that some people were subhuman and didn’t deserve equal protections like everybody else in a country, that’s about freedom, in a country that is about love, respect and understanding.” According to Margaret Chantung, CSUSM’s chief communications officer, as a next step, University President Ellen Neufeldt will be charging a workgroup to examine the legacy of Craven, who was instrumental in the founding of the school

in 1989. “The workgroup will allow for a deliberative and reconciliatory process that will bring members of our community together so that diverse voices and perspectives may be heard. These are the difficult moments that we must contend with – but as a university it’s vital that we model a way of engaging with each other where we ask difficult questions and have the courage to work together to answer them, modeling the respectful, civil dialogue that we expect our students to champion as tomorrow’s leaders,” Chantung said. This isn’t the first time CSUSM’s Academic Senate has voted on this issue. Back in 1994, they unanimously approved this exact same motion. At that meeting, however, a letter by then university president Dr. Bill Stacy was read in which he stated, “I have decided against proposing or advocating the renaming of Craven Hall. Sen. Craven has made enormous historical contributions to the founding of CSUSM.”

In the statement, Stacy explained that the naming of Craven Hall does not establish Craven as a spokesman for the university, nor does it imply that the university agrees or disagrees with his views on this or any other issue. Stacy’s belief also served as the focal point for the Associated Students vote, which was 4-3 against the initiative. Dr. Michelle Ramos Pellicia, an associate professor at CSUSM, told The Coast News that the Academic Senate vote is just the beginning. Next will be discussions about how this might happen, including discussions with the City of San Marcos, CSUSM’s chancellor’s office and the board of trustees. “Hopefully with all of us showing up at the Academic Senate level… this sends a clear message, and we are not going to rest on our laurels because we know that there are people who are pushing against us and against the idea of removal and renaming,” said Pellicia.

ENCINITAS — The city’s removal of two stop signs at a three-way intersection on North Coast Highway 101 and Marcheta Street could create difficulties for local drivers entering the highway, according to a recent city release. Rather than using Marcheta Street, the city advises travelers to use an alternate route when attempting to turn left to travel northbound on the highway. The removal of the signs is designed to improve traffic flow amidst Leucadia Streetscape construction efforts. Leslie Spring, a support consultant for public outreach on the Streetscape project, clarified that the removal of the stop signs will be a permanent change. According to Spring, electronic message signs will be placed around the intersection to notify drivers of the coming change. “The removal (of the stop signs) will happen two weeks after the city posts advanced warning of the improvement via electronic signage on N. Coast Highway 101,” Spring told The Coast News. “But first, the city is notifying residents and businesses in the surrounding area to provide them with advanced notice of the change.” City Engineer Ed Wimmer confirmed Spring’s information. “The ultimate plan for this stretch of North Coast Highway 101 is to reduce traffic to one lane in each direction, which will slow traffic down, so the impact to the ability to turn north

out of the neighborhoods will be minimal because now left turners will only have to cross one lane of traffic instead of two,” Wimmer said in an email. “By removing the stop sign now, as part of the Leucadia Streetscape plan, we are able to help the flow of north and southbound traffic during construction and afterward.” The signs’ removal comes alongside other roadway changes, including widened bike lanes, roundabouts, pedestrian walkways, and highway lane reductions, “that have been designed and approved after the city conducted a comprehensive traffic study of the area,” according to the newsletter. There’s currently no official date to implement the electronic signage. City officials hope the Leucadia Streetscape project, which began construction in January 2021, will benefit the locality in a number of ways, including improvements to safety, lifestyle, the economy and the environment.

Carlsbad awards waste contract despite lingering concerns By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council awarded a new contract for trash, organics and recycling services during its April 6 meeting, although questions linger about the winning bid. Republic Services, the second-largest waste removal company in the country, won the bid following a 3-2 vote, with Mayor Matt Hall and Councilman Keith Blackburn voting no citing concerns of fewer environmental incentives and rate savings, and a higher contract bid. The 10-year contract, one of the city's biggest, was awarded to Republic Services for a bid of $27.7 million compared to EDCO’s bid of $27.5 million. Republic Services will begin city operations on July 1, 2022, taking over for Waste Management, who didn’t submit a bid. Councilmembers Cori Schumacher, Priya Bhat-Patel and Teresa Acosta lauded the company's ties to the Teamsters Local 683 union, worker protections, labor peace, pledges to equity, lower vehicle miles traveled and fewer objections to the request for proposal. The council had discussed the item on March 23 but tabled the issue over various concerns. “These are both great proposals,” Acosta said. “It’s about picking the one most closely aligned with our values. It’s a family business (EDCO) and that worries me. I like the that we’ve got a public business that cares about its employees.” During the meeting, talks also centered on the vehicle miles traveled analysis. According to the staff

report, Republic's fleet, which will be based out of Carlsbad, included mileage for taking waste to San Marcos before heading to its facilities in either Otay Mesa or Anaheim. Jamie Wood, the city’s environmental services manager, and Rob Hilton, of H&H Consulting, hired by the city to independently review the bids, said their calculations showed Republic’s vehicle miles traveled were approximately 100 miles fewer per week compared to EDCO's weekly mileage. But EDCO's proposal contained “significant" factors to help reduce carbon emissions. “With EDCO using an RNG (renewable natural gas) produced from the

city’s own organic materials in their fleet of 35 vehicles and using a very conservative CI (carbon intensity) of being carbon neutral, the city can reduce their onroad transportation community GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions by 2,419 tons of carbon dioxide on day one of the contract,” according to EDCO’s proposal. Wood said reducing greenhouse gases by 2,419 tons over 10 years would help the city reach its 2035 climate goal of reducing emissions by 49,012 tons. Specific information on the type of trucks used by a Republic subcontractor was not available so emission factors could not be provided by staff. Republic said it is working to electrify its fleet, but it will be at least

eight to 10 years before the technology will be operational. Hilton also questioned the veracity of Republics' claims of saving ratepayers $13.9 million over 10 years, saying it was overly “simplified.” Javara Perrilliat, area president of Republic Services, said the company’s rates are 4.5% lower than Lemon Grove-based EDCO, although Wood and Hilton said there are hundreds of different rates for a variety of services and Republic’s claim of savings doesn’t align with their calculations. EDCO, which contracts with Encinitas, Solana Beach, Imperial Beach and others, offered the best environmental incentives to

National Black Contractors Association’s program. Alejandra Sotelo-Solis and Todd Gloria — mayors of National City and San Diego, respectively — subsequently moved to include the Black Contractors Association as an explicit exception. “You can’t start off a conversation with exclusion, and then tout inclusion,” said Abdur-Rahim Hameed, the Black contractors’ president. The resolution cites “concerns for equity,” and the SANDAG board in February adopted a commitment to “uphold equity and inclusion” and “eliminate disparities” in all aspects of the agency’s activities. La Mesa City Councilman Jack Shu, who authored

the resolution, offered to revise his language to include union and non-union programs. “Whenever you start specifying one particular organization, then you end up excluding the ones that you didn’t mention,” he said. Sotelo-Solis declined to substitute Shu’s more general language, confirming her motion to add the Black Contractors Association as an exception to the otherwise union-only paradigm. A first vote on the resolution, with Sotelo-Solis’ modification, failed to pass in a 9-to-9 tie. Shu subsequently invoked a SANDAG procedure whereby representatives’ votes no longer count equally, but rather are

weighted by population. Several representatives then dropped out of the virtual meeting, including Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall, Oceanside City Councilman Christ Rodriguez, San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones, and Vista Mayor Judy Ritter. The board was left with a bare quorum, which approved the modified resolution 9-to-1. The sole no-vote in the second round came from Del Mar Mayor Terry Gaasterland, who, only recently appointed to the SANDAG board, said she didn’t know she had the option to ditch the proceedings. Had she done so, the remaining members would’ve been left without a quorum.

ley Clean Energy and Sonoma Clean Power. CleanPowerSF and Valley Clean Energy are also in the process of joining the authority. The enabling agreement for California Community Power allows for member community choice programs to potentially participate in any projects from the joint power authority without any obligation.

“If there is a project that a group of the members is interested in, and should Clean Energy Alliance join, if it’s a project that doesn’t meet our needs or if in any way the board isn’t interested in it then we would have no obligation to participate, nor would there be any financial obligation on our behalf,” Boswell said. If the Clean Energy Alliance were to join at some

time in the future after launch, they would share general and administrative costs of the joint power authority on an equal basis with each other member agency which for this year would total $12,000. Also if the decision is made to join, Clean Energy Alliance will be able to withdraw from California Community Power at any time without prior notice, according to Boswell.

the city through its anaerobic digestion facilities. The process involves microorganisms breaking down organic material to produce Biogas, which is converted to renewable natural gas and used to fuel EDCO’s trucks, according to Steve South, chief executive officer of EDCO. Additionally, EDCO does not use landfills, South said. Republic’s trucks use diesel fuel and dump in landfills, according to the staff report. According to the state, organic waste in landfills accounts for 20% of methane emissions. Assembly Bill 1383, passed in 2016, aims to lessen organic waste in landfills to limit methane being released into the

atmosphere to help reduce climate change. One advantage Wood saw was the city would not have to buy back organic material from EDCO as required by AB 1383, as it must do with Republic. Wood said EDCO would use all the organic waste to power its fleet, while also retaining some for a giveback program for residents put on by EDCO. With Republic, the city must purchase 9,243 tons of organic waste per year, according to the law. Republic proposed 2,500 cubic yards, but it still leaves the city short of its requirement. However, Hall was able to have Republic commit to no further cost to the city for buy-backs and storage, instead of having the waste hauler take the burden of the cost. The city will use the organic material for its own uses, but leftovers will be either sold or given to residents or agriculture businesses. “If the challenges were that big, staff would not have recommended EDCO,” Hall said. “The best contract for the citizens, especially from an environmental aspect, is EDCO.” As for labor peace, Perrilliat said Republic was the only bidder to agree to a labor peace agreement. Hall questioned him about a recent labor dispute, but Perrilliat said no days of work were missed. In 2019, Teamsters employees in Chula Vista missed one day of work to show support to fellow union members in Massachusetts who went on strike against Republic over claims of an unfair contract. Additionally, workers at Republic’s Anaheim facility authorized a strike and San Diego union workers picketed.

Encinitas youth signs with San Diego Loyal Soccer Club By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — A 16-year-old Encinitas resident, Xavi Gnaulati, recently made a giant next step in his ultimate goal to play professional international soccer. Gnaulati, a midfielder by trade, is one of four young local soccer stars who have signed amateur contracts with San Diego Loyal Soccer Club of the USL Championship. The club, managed by former US Men’s National Team captain Landon Donovan, played in its first season as an expansion club last year with a record of 6-5-5. “As the soccer capital of this country, we are very fortunate to have some of the very best players here in San Diego,” said Donovan, who serves as executive vice president of soccer operations and manager of the club. “Being able to add four of them to a roster further shows our commitment to this community and that we are truly dedicated to making SD Loyal a club that our entire community can be proud of. We can't wait for the day we see our first homegrown product representing SD Loyal on the field at Torero Stadium.” For Gnaulati, getting the chance to play under Donovan will do wonders for his progression as a player.

Gnaulati says he’d spend time playing on his own pretending to play entire games on his own playing the roles of players like Lionel Messi. The contract Gnaulati signed with SD Loyal is considered an amatuer contract under the USL Academy.

with SD Loyal for very long, but the transition has been smooth thus far for Gnaulati. “I think I’ve been developing a lot since I’ve joined,” Gnaulati said. “They’ve been giving me advice, helping me on the field. And not just me but all four of us academy

My immediate goals are definitely to get some minutes for Loyal, just start breaking in more with the team.”

ENCINITAS RESIDENT Xavi Gnaulati (pictured) is part of the first group of youth players signed by San Diego Loyal Soccer Club and will be coached under Landon Donovan, a former US Mens National Team captain. Photo courtesy of SD Loyal

“I thought he was a really good player and to have him as my coach, to just learn off him through everything is great,” Gnaulati said. Gnaulati has been playing soccer almost since the day he was born, playing for local club teams

Oceanside Breakers, San Diego Surf Soccer Club and Encinitas Express Soccer since a very young age. Born in Oceanside, Gnaulati would spend most of his free time playing soccer with his father Julio or even by himself in his backyard.

“I would go out to play for hours in a day. Just make up my own games to play by myself or with my brother or with my dad,” Gnaulati said. “And that’s just such a big memory because I also dreamt of becoming a pro soccer player.”

The system set up by the USL allows young players like Gnaulati to compete against older professional players, while still maintaining collegiate eligibility under NCAA rules. This allows for players like Gnaulati to get the kind of coaching and experience young players never would have been allowed before. “I get to watch and they help us understand what’s going on and how we should implement the good things in the game,” Gnaulati said. Gnaulati is part of the first group that SD Loyal has signed to USL Academy contracts along with three other young players from southern California. The group hasn’t been

players, we’ve all felt very welcomed.” Even if a player signed under a USL Academy contract is added to the active roster for a game they will retain their amateur status and getting that opportunity to play for SD Loyal is a top priority for Gnaulati. “My immediate goals are definitely to get some minutes for Loyal, just start breaking in more with the team,” Gnaulati said. In the future, Gnaulati has hopes of bringing his talents overseas. “I would love to play in Italy or Spain,” he said. “I love the style of play in Spain and Italy because my dad’s Italian and my favorite team is Juventus.”

Fair board still expects losses in ‘21 By Bill Slane

DEL MAR — After a difficult year financially, the 22nd District Agricultural Association (DAA) board presented their 2021 operating budget with the projected revenues from the scaled-back fair event this summer and more expected aid from the state. Even with the projections of revenue from the Homegrown Fun fair event, the 22nd DAA is still projected to be at a loss of nearly $2.4 million for the year. The fair board says their net position will be improved by just over $2 million thanks to Homegrown Fun and that will help to chip away into some of the losses incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic last year. “Really our goal at this point, with things opening back up here in the state of California and San Diego County with those opportunities, is to overcome that red figure,” Carlene Moore, CEO of the fair board, said. The fair board’s projections also include an expected $9 million in support from the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). The state department announced in a letter to all CEOs and board members of district agri-

cultural associations last month that it would begin the second distribution of funds from the state it received last year. The 22nd DAA has applied for targeted support through that allocation based on their financial need. The board has not made changes to its projections after news last week that Governor Gavin Newsom plans to more open up the economy of the state by June 15 with plans to do away with the state’s colored COVID-19 tier system with vaccinations increasing. “What we didn’t want to do with this, again that news was just last week, was start making too many changes to this so just focusing on Homegrown Fun and the CDFA targeted support,” Moore said. The fair board says they took a conservative approach in terms of projecting their revenue but an aggressive approach in projecting their expenses. “We are confident in being able to obtain these numbers,” Moore said. The Homegrown Fun fair event will also be a large contributor to the board’s expenses for the year with the event project to cost around $5 million,

which would be less than a normal fair costs the board In 2020, budget the fairgrounds had projected revenue of just over $85 million but reported an actual revenue of just under $19 million thanks in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic putting a halt to fairgrounds events and keeping fans out of the stands for the 2020 horse racing season at Del Mar. A significant part of that loss comes from food and beverage which was projected at a revenue of close to $23 million for 2020, with the actual revenue coming in at under $1 million for the year. In this year’s budget, with fans expected back in the grandstands for the horse racing season starting in July, the fair board is projecting nearly $7.5 million from food and beverage from horse racing events, the largest single source of revenue aside from the aid from the CDFA. The financial future of the fairgrounds does remain unclear, but the board is hopeful with the pandemic situation in the state continuing to improve that there will be further revenue opportunities moving forward.

No matter what, our mission remains the same — to provide an inspiring environment for residents, families and team members where every life is defined by the possibilities. To us, nothing else could be more important.

Encinitas City Council to repeal housing ordinances By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council has agreed to repeal two ordinances passed in December 2020 that reportedly violate state housing laws. At a special meeting last week, the council voted 4-1 to repeal the ordinances within three months as the state reviews the city's submitted Housing Element while also immediately suspending enforcement of the ordinances. Ordinance 2020-09 was passed by the council in December 2020 in an effort to make their municipal code more consistent with state bonus density law. Specifically, the ordinance is in relation to state density bonus laws that are meant to incentivize developers to construct more low-income housing to aid in the state’s housing crisis. The state said the city’s ordinance hurts that effort. A letter sent to the city from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) on March 25 says the ordinance introduces burdensome requirements to developers and is not consistent with state law.

“The city’s proposed ordinance is impermissibly inconsistent with state density bonus law because it increases, rather than decreases, the costs and burdens on applicants,” Megan Kirkeby, deputy director of HCD housing policy development, wrote in the letter to City Manager Pamela Antil. Some of the issues the state laid out in the letter include a requirement for applicants to provide certain financial analyses and reports, a change in calculations for the density bonus, a lack of grandfathering provisions and more. HCD also claims another ordinance, No. 202016, which relates to group homes and sober living facilities, is in violation of state code. The agency's letter states it may contact the state attorney general when cities take actions that violate state laws. According to the city, the state housing agency first notified Encinitas of some of these issues with adopted ordinances in February before issuing this notice of violation late last month. “As directed by the City

Council and Planning Commission, staff requested a meeting with HCD. However HCD did not respond to the city’s request for a meeting,” said Principal Planner Jennifer Gates. The city said that in informal comments from HCD staff this week, city staff was told that repealing the ordinance will be critical in obtaining a certified Housing Element. “Neither the density bonus ordinance nor the group home ordinance has been approved by the California Coastal Commission,” Gates said. “Thus changes made by these ordinances have not yet been enforced by the city. The city will withdraw its request that these ordinances be approved by the coastal commission.” Public sentiment at the meeting was frustration at the state’s actions against the city of Encinitas. “I am deeply saddened to see what is happening within our city regarding the housing element and the density bonus housing laws,” resident JerylAnne Kessler said. “What I see is an overreach by the state to force Encinitas to allow rampant and unfettered

high-density growth regardless of the consequences to the neighborhoods and the environmental impact.” Some in the public expressed interest in standing up the state and refusing their request, but Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz pointed out the city has experience in that in 2014 when the city decided to round down when calculating their base density bonus units as opposed to rounding up as the state law requires. “The result of that decision by the city council was a lawsuit and essentially started us down the road of litigation that resulted in a cause of action which included not having a housing element and kind of put this in this nightmare cycle,” Kranz said. “We ended up in a position where we didn’t have any local control over our housing for (the 5th cycle).” Kranz still did however strongly object to the state’s notion that the ordinances in question needed to be repealed. Kranz was the lone no vote on the motion after calling for more analysis of the objections from HCD as well as questioning why

Use your child’s summer break to give them a better start for new school year! Encinitas Learning Center offers intensive training. These daily sessions help build important skills so that we see significant changes in weeks – up to 1.5 years growth! How can that happen? Processing skills work in two ways; how fast one can take in information and how fast the brain can retrieve knowledge to answer questions in a timely way. The training we provide speeds everything up, and once the brain gets to a new “set point” for processing speed,

it never returns to the old sluggish way that was the obstacle to learning. Summer break is coming, are you excited or feeling a little stressed out about having your child at home, not making progress? No matter how long your summer break is, being out of school (and out of their routine) can cause lags. Our two-hour intensives can help you add structure and routine to your child’s day, while helping them pay attention longer, process information faster, and comprehend what they're

could still be available for the city after the ordinances are repealed. “The city could go back, after repealing the ordinance, to take a closer look and make some changes to the ordinance,” Kautz said.

La Costa Canyon’s Brown vaults into the record book

W

hen it comes to flying there’s the Wright Brothers and the Brown

Brothers. We know what Orville and Wilbur Wright pulled off. Carlsbad’s Kyle and Garrett Brown are logging some impressive sky miles, too, as pole vaulters. Garrett Brown, the younger of the pair, went up, up and away on Friday and when he landed, he was a CIF San Diego Section record-holder. “It was the perfect jump,” Garrett, 17, said. “I was super excited that I accomplished my goal.” His mark of 17 feet, ¾ inch set not only a county standard but it’s also the top national mark among preps. It came on Garrett’s second attempt at that height, after his first try failed when his hip grazed the bar. Garrett went to a stiffer pole during his second run and he leaped right into the record books. Thank goodness his father, Charles, a former UCLA pole vaulter, hit record on his cellphone. Turns out Charles is better at mentoring his sons than chronicling their greatness. “I’m barely in the video,” Garrett said. “He almost missed it.” At least his post-jump comments were on the mark, correct? “He was speechless and almost in shock,” Garrett said. “I don’t think he expected me to be able to do that.” Garrett is always doing something to hone his skills of arching a pole and defying gravity. But like other high school athletes, it’s been challenging to train and shine during the pandemic. Last season was wiped from the books and this season there’s only been a few dual meets. That’s why Garrett was rising in Arizona last week, competing in an invitational, and not closer

Not only does his father and brother have UCLA on their transcripts, but Garrett’s mother has Westwood in her blood, too. So, of course, Garrett is headed to ... Stanford? “I was always interested in Stanford and I heard a lot of good things about it,” said Garrett, who’ll likely major in aerospace engineering. “There’s a lot of reasons to go there and I wanted to take my own path.” Garrett blazed a trail to an In-N-Out in Chandler, Many aspects of daily life have changed over the last year.

Silvergate’s unique memory care solution fosters improved quality of life SAN MARCOS, CA - April 16, 2021 - Moving a loved one into a memory care environment can be a difficult decision for families who are faced with the many challenges inherent to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss. Yet, understanding what makes a memory care community unique can make all the difference in a family’s search for specialized care and the right team of qualified nurses and trained caregivers. First, memory care is different from regular assisted living. It constitutes more than simply assisting with the activities of day-to-day life. An excellent memory care provider delivers a higher level of care with compassion and dignity -- one that offers seniors a remarkably improved quality of life that they are unlikely to experience by remaining at home. At Silvergate San Marcos, a premier retirement community for more than 25 years, residents in memory care are surrounded by: • An Industry leading caregiver-to-resident ratio • A secure environment to reduce elopement, while permitting healthy wandering • Sensory-based memory care programming to promote brain health • A “Neighborhood” of suites clustered around open, shared living spaces • Accommodations for the early, middle and late stages of the disease An Improved Quality Of Life Secondly, with a greater understanding of why dementia patients exhibit problem behaviors,

caregivers at Silvergate can deal more successfully with those behaviors and deliver more effective resident care. As each stage of the disease is addressed, care is personalized to the individual. Targeted care plans mean residents experience many improved quality-of-life factors, including: • Increased nutrition and fewer vitamin deficiencies • Increased independence and social interaction • Increased happiness with higher level functioning • Improved/maintained mental functioning over time • Reduction in medication and negative side effects • Decreased falls and injuries • Fewer emergency room visits • Fewer dementia-related behaviors For Silvergate’s memory care team, the key to successful caregiving is not to focus on the losses of the disease, but rather on the individual’s remaining capabilities. Through use of the renowned “A Positive Approach To Care” program, championed by industry expert Teepa Snow, residents function at the highest possible level for as long as possible. By providing mental, physical and nutritional health at optimal levels, residents are more likely to experience improved mental acuity and a sense of enhanced well-being. A Family’s Role in Memory Care Families figure prominently into their loved one’s care at Silvergate. By including family members in developing the care plan, Silvergate’s team forges a strong partnership with the resident’s family -- offering education, support and resources to family members while providing unsurpassed, high-touch care to the resident.

“We are committed to providing families with practical information to help them navigate the various challenges common to memory loss,” said Janet Mangaya, Director of Resident Care for Silvergate San Marcos. “We want families to know we reach beyond leisure activities and socialization. We use a model of care that also infuses goals in a wide-range of programs that are measurable and trackable, resulting in an improved level of care.” Once a family chooses Silvergate’s memory care solution, the care team works directly with family members to understand as much as possible about the new resident, including who they are as a person, what they’ve experienced in their life and what has brought them a sense of purpose over time. As family members share their stories, the team brings the resident’s interests, experiences and hobbies to life through unique care programs. This strong partnership with the family gives the team the ability to create days full of meaning and individual purpose for the resident. About Silvergate’s Memory Care Suites The dedicated Memory Care Suites building at Silvergate San Marcos features private and shared accommodations, a secure terrace featuring outdoor activities, daily chef-crafted cuisine, a community activity room, and intimate spaces for quiet reflection.

Homeless camp vacated, residents to temporary lodging By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The large homeless encampment along South Oceanside Boulevard is on its way out after city police swept the area and moved many of its residents into a nearby hotel on April 13 as part of a new city voucher program. The encampment first became well known throughout the region for being tidier than most homeless camps. Residents worked to keep their trash off the ground and kept their belongings out of view under storage tents, and everyone slept in tents lined up neatly along the side of the street. Many of the tents along with other items were donated from community members. Rodney McGough, who founded the camp in February, sought to use the it as a means to help his fellow homeless community work through the traumas in their lives that had either led to their current situation or exacerbated it. McGough noticed the issues that exist among the homeless who stay in the area and wanted to make a change. “We’re all messed up here in our ways, we’re all damaged,” he said. “We’re just trying to find away to make it work.” With the camp, he created what he calls a “trauma informed safe center” to help stabilize people and allow them to come back from

their senses. “People cannot get jobs or even function correctly if they’re cycling through survival mode and coping mode,” McGough told The Coast News in early March. “What’s kept people out here is being told, ‘you can’t sleep here, oh you can’t sleep here either,’ which keeps them in survival mode, so they’re never stabilizing.” The camp grew fast, creating a “public safety

concern” and drew a number of complaints from local businesses according to city staff. Other camps have also occurred throughout the city as well. Talks of a motel voucher program had been circulating for weeks throughout the camp but it wasn’t until the City Council meeting on April 7 that made the program official, along with a ban on camping and storing belongings on public property. The following morn-

ing, residents of the camp were given notices that the city would be cleaning up the camp in the following days. Around 6 a.m. on April 13, a swath of police officers walked down the street along the encampment, signaling it was time to clear up. A command center area was also established near the site where staff and police set up a station to help individuals into the motel voucher program and refer

them to drug counseling, mental health resources and other services if needed. The voucher program aims to provide temporary emergency lodging for unsheltered homeless individ-

In loving memory of

Francis Hamilton White Aug. 1933 - Mar. 2021

Frances Hamilton White, 87, passed away peacefully at her home in Cardiff, CA on March 21, 2021. Frances, the daughter of Richard Hamilton and Edna Douglass Hamilton, was born in St. Marys, West Virginia, on her mother’s birthday in August 1933, and was delivered at home by her father, the town doctor. Frances graduated from St. Marys High School (1951) and Vassar College (1956) where she received a BA in Psychology and always claimed, “We mostly

played a lot of bridge and smoked a lot of cigarettes”. Frances married Harvey White in 1956 and had three children, Katherine, Sarah, and Philip. She moved to California and settled in La Mesa in 1972. By 1982, she had moved to Cardiff where she resided near her beloved San Elijo Lagoon until her passing. Frances was a dedicated philanthropist who strongly believed that a rising tide floats all boats. She especially loved helping a charity launch new initiatives. She provided the lead gift that established the Hamilton Glaucoma Center at the Shiley Eye Institute, worked with Mama’s Kitchen to initiate their breakfast program, and partnered with St Paul’s to help create the Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) program. She supported a wide variety of educational institutions including Barrio Logan College Institute, MiraCosta College, and Vassar College. She also supported her local librar-

TIMOTHY “TIMMER” JOSEPH FENNELL II July 22, 1977 - January 23, 2021

Timmer passed away at the age of 43 unexpectedly due to complications from Type-1 diabetes Saturday, January 23, 2021. While he played many sports at a young age music was in his soul. He was gifted and soon became an accomplished guitarist who would play morning, noon and night. His mother would of-

ten find him asleep with his guitar in his hands. Over the years he played in numerous bands and he particularly enjoyed playing the annual San Diego County Fair. Timmer leaves behind two parents, Linda and Tim, his younger brother Sean, his uncle Eddie and nephews Kaden and Kieran that love and miss him more than words can express. He also leaves behind band mates and too many friends to list from across the country. Funeral services will be held at North Coast Calvary Chapel on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, Timmer’s family is asking for donations to be made to the American Diabetes Association.

ies including Cardiff-bythe-Sea Branch Library, the San Diego Public Library, Pleasants County Public Library (WV), and she truly understood that a public library is a transformative force in a community. Frances also believed in the power of nature to heal and educate, and was a major force behind the Hamilton Children’s Garden at San Diego Botanic Garden, the Healing Garden at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, and the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy (now Nature Collective). Her appreciation for the arts led her to the Mingei International Museum, where she was a long-time board member and board chair, as well as a major supporter of several key initiatives. Frances also loved to travel and visited many countries and six continents but most enjoyed traveling with her family. She made several trips to Scotland exploring her family history, and never met a standing stone that she didn’t like.

When she was home and sitting relatively still, she could be found reading, cooking, birdwatching, enjoying the company of her beloved shelties and tending her garden. Her favorite plant was a climbing rose that she bought when she was five years old for a nickel and three cereal box tops. She transported that rose bush from West Virginia to La Mesa to Cardiff, where the bush thrives to this day. Frances is survived by her three children, Katherine White, Sarah White (David Gray), and Philip White (Ann); eight grandchildren, Madison White, Benjamin Warren, Zachary Warren, Isaac Gray, Henry Gray, Christopher White, Carson White and Danny White; one brother and four nieces and nephews. A service will be announced at a later date. Contributions in her name to Nature Collective (formerly the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy), St. Paul’s PACE or your local library would be greatly appreciated.

housing. The new program will use up to 30 rooms at the Marty Valley Inn located in the Oceanside Industrial Park and near services like Brother Benno’s, which operates as a soup kitchen and provides a series of other resources for homeless and impoverished individuals. The program will shelter those who need case management services but cannot be accommodated by the city’s Oceanside Bridge Apartments at this time. Interim Neighborhood Services Director Megan Crooks told Council that one of the rooms would be used as an office for the program. The rest of the rooms could fit anywhere from one individual to a family of four depending on the size of the room. Many of the rooms will house two people if they are willing, according to staff at the scene of the camp cleanup. While the program is expected to run for about 6 months, Crooks said the average stay of an individual will only be about 21 days before they are moved into permanent housing. Oceanside Police Department’s Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) will then refer other homeless individuals throughout the city to the program once spots open. Crooks said the city would work with its other regional partners, including county services, to help individuals who may need longer stays. “This is a temporary lodging versus the street to create a safe and secure environment where they can start focusing on other aspects of their lives that need to be taken control of so that they can move on CROP and lead a sustainable life,” .93said. Crooks .93 city is working The with 4.17 the McAlister Institute 4.28 to provide drug counseling and rehabilitation to individuals at the motel. The city is also working with the County of San Diego, Interfaith Community Services and other partners to provide other necessary services like mental health counseling and family reunification. The program’s total cost is $632,630. Crooks noted that the motel voucher program is not the only thing being done in the city to address homelessness. “This is one approach to resolving homeless issues,” she said. “It’s not the final, and we need other things put in place as well.” The city currently has a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) out for interested organizations to open a homeless shelter in Oceanside, something that the city currently lacks. Because the city doesn’t have a shelter, the act of sleeping on public property cannot be banned as per a 2019 Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in the case of Martin v. City of Boise. The case however does not completely prohibit the city from regulating camp-

ing and storing property in public spaces, thus Council unanimously approved an amendment to city code making these acts illegal at the same April 7 meeting. On the morning of the cleanup, many residents were nervous about getting a room in the program. McGough said the process was confusing and expressed frustration over how things were done, claiming he saw homeless individuals who were not part of his camp receive vouchers during the cleanup. Though the program is open to any homeless individuals referred by HOT in the city, the services at the cleanup that day were mainly targeting the camp and its residents.

This is one approach to resolving homeless issues. It’s not the final, and we need other things put in place as well.” Dir. Megan Crooks Interim Neighborhood Services

The cleanup and transportation of individuals from the camp to the motel lasted most of the day Tuesday. The Coast News observed several individuals called to pack up their things and hop in the HOT team van. Anything they couldn’t take with them to the motel would be stored by the city for up to 90 days, and anything unclaimed after that would be thrown away. McGough, who was originally doubtful about getting a room that day, had his name called later that morning. He packed up what he could put away in his nearby storage unit and took a few other items with him to the motel. “I get to go be with my community,” he said. A total of 28 individuals were placed into the voucher program that day. Of those people, about 12 participated in a county-wide vulnerability survey used by the HOT team that helps connect them to other resources. Three people were also referred to the Exodus Whole Person Wellness program and another three were connected with Cal Fresh, according to Terry Gorman Brown with the City Manager’s office. “At the end of the day, there were nine individuals who remained,” Brown said via email. “It is anticipated that another block of rooms will be available within a week.” Once those remaining people are helped, the camp area will undergo a final cleanup. Large rocks have already been placed in cleared parts of the camp to prevent other encampments from forming.

amendments to the city municipal code to increase the inclusionary housing percentage requirements from 15% to 50%, which would result in an estimated reduction of about 4,000 high-density market-rate units. The commission had previously voted in favor of the increase and members were planning to wrap up the process with a discussion on establishing inlieu fees (alternative fees paid by developers to avoid building affordable housing units) before sending it to the council for final approval. However, the item was instead moved to the consent calendar, a category typically reserved for items deemed routine in nature and are approved en masse with no public discussion or debate. The change created confusion and consternation amongst residents, including Planning Commission Chair Bruce Ehlers. “I was a bit perplexed as far as what happened,” Ehlers told The Coast News. “I’m concerned and I’m perplexed and I plan to get to the bottom of it.” City staff also included a request for continuance “to allow additional time for staff to review and work with the consultant to prepare responses to Planning

tent possible.” School lawyers argued the districts are moving as fast as they feel is safe and the court shouldn’t overstep its constitutional role, as The Coast News reported last week. This go-around, Freeland decided largely in the schools’ favor. “Plaintiffs argue that … the use of the word ‘shall,’ creates a mandatory duty” that is ministerial (i.e., nondiscretionary) in nature, Freeland wrote in her April 12 ruling, which parents’ counsel furnished to The Coast News. But the rest of the statuary language — “to the greatest extent possible” — means the mandatory duty “is mixed with discretionary power and/or the exercise of judgment by the local educational agency.” “The court cannot conclude … that [San Marcos Unified School District] has abused its discretion in the creation and implementation of its reopening plan,” she wrote. “To the extent that plaintiffs argue that the defendant school districts cannot take more time than is necessary to plan for and to return to fulltime in-person instruction, plaintiffs offer no evidence to suggest what the time limits should be in light of all of the fluctuating issues that the school districts

T he C oast News Commission comments. Staff further recommended the item be discussed “off calendar,” a legal term suggesting the item would be removed from the calendar with no guaranteed date of return. Any individual member of the commission or general public can request for the item to be removed from the consent calendar for discussion, which Ehlers said he plans on doing at the meeting. As of Wednesday afternoon Ehlers says he still plans to take the item off the consent calendar for discussion at Thursday night’s planning commission meeting. Gates says there is no intention to scrap the item completely and expects it to be re-noticed at a future meeting of the planning commission. “Right now I don’t know of any special meetings being planned so it would be a regular meeting, though not the next regular meeting but maybe that following one,” Gates said. The item in question includes amendments to the city municipal code to increase the inclusionary housing percentage requirements from 15% to 50%. If adopted by the Planning Commission, the item would be sent to the City Council for approval.

Theater group hits stage at Flower Fields By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Nestled against a flowing back drop of blooming flowers, New Village Arts held its first live performance in more than one year on April 8. Jasmine January, Zackary Scott Wolf and J.D. Dumas took to the stage at the Flower Fields in front of about 30 people performing a variety of songs. The cabaret showcase featured a variety of solo and duet performances with January and Wolf entertaining the crowd with vignettes and jokes about their close friendship.

Though she rejected certain of Oceanside Unified’s arguments about legal procedure, she likewise found “insufficient evidence that [the district] is not complying with the law.” “Anything short of fulltime in-person instruction has harmful effects on a significant portion of the students affected,” Freeland wrote. At the same time, “school districts operate independently of one another and experience different impediments to a return to in-person instruction five days per week such that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to reopening.” “We thought the evidence was clear that neither of these school districts were planning to expand in-person instruction, despite their superintendents claiming otherwise in their declarations to the court,” parents’ co-counsel Scott Davison told The Coast News “Both districts have board meetings in the next week where we will see if they actually attempt to expand their reopening plans. If they don’t, we might consider going back to court to demonstrate that they misrepresented their intentions to the judge.” Oceanside Unified School District board of trustees could possibly speed reopening plans this week.

PROJECT LOCATION:

The Chick-Fil-A project comprises two parcels totaling 0.89-acres (Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 210-170-08,-09) at 5850 Avenida Encinas. The site is located on the west side Avenida Encinas, adjacent to Interstate 5 to the east, north of the intersection with Palomar Airport Road and south of the intersection with Cannon Road. Refer to the attached location map.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The proposed project consists of the demolition of a 10,977-square-foot (SF), two-story office building and the construction of a 3,945 SF, 24-foot-tall Chick-Fil-A restaurant. The project includes a General Plan Amendment, Zone Change, Local Coastal Program Amendment, Site Development Plan Amendment, Non-Residential Planned Development Permit and a Coastal Development Permit. The site currently has a General Plan Land Use and Local Coastal Program designation of Planned Industrial (PI) and a zoning designation of Planned Industrial (P-M) with a Commercial/Visitor-Serving Overlay. The proposed General Plan Amendment and Local Coastal Program Amendments would change the designations to Visitor Commercial (VC), and the Zone Change would change the zoning to Commercial Tourist with a Qualified Development Overlay (C-T-Q) and a Commercial/Visitor-Serving Overlay. PROPOSED DETERMINATION: The City of Carlsbad has conducted an environmental review of the above described project pursuant to the Guidelines for Implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the Environmental Protection Ordinance of the City of Carlsbad. As a result of said review, the Initial study identified potentially significant effects on the environment, but (1) revisions in the project plans or proposals made by, or agreed to by, the applicant before the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study are released for public review would avoid the effects or mitigate the effects to a point where clearly no significant effect on the environment would occur, and (2) there is no substantial evidence in light of the whole record before the City that the project “as revised” may have a significant effect on the environment. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration will be recommended for adoption by the City of Carlsbad City Council. AVAILABILITY: A copy of the Initial Study documenting reasons to support the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration is on file in the Planning Division, 1635 Faraday Avenue, Carlsbad, California 92008 and is available online at: http://www.carlsbadca. gov/services/depts/planning/agendas.asp. COMMENTS: Comments from the public are invited. Pursuant to Section 15204 of the CEQA Guidelines, in reviewing Mitigated Negative Declarations, persons and public agencies should focus on the proposed finding that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment. If persons and public agencies believe that the project may have a significant effect, they should: (1) identify the specific effect; (2) explain why they believe the effect would occur; and (3) explain why they believe the effect would be significant. Written comments regarding the draft Mitigated Negative Declaration should be directed to Shannon Harker, Associate Planner, at the address listed above or via email to Shannon.Harker@carlsbadca.gov. Comments must be received within 30 days of the date of this notice. The proposed project and Mitigated Negative Declaration are subject to review and approval/adoption by the Planning Commission and City Council. Additional public notices will be issued when those public hearings are scheduled. If you have any questions, please call Shannon Harker in the Planning Division at (760) 602-4621.

North County investors changing angel investing By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Typically, an angel investor is someone who provides capital to accelerate growth for startup companies. But a pair of North County investors are redefining angel investing. Neal Bloom and Al Bsharah, both of whom live in Encinitas, launched Interlock Capital last summer with the hopes of bringing more people into investments at lower costs. Both men are veteran entrepreneurs, each having built and sold businesses TWO NORTH COUNTY entrepreneurs and longtime investors living in Encinitas are hoping to along with years of investexpand access to investment opportunities. ment. Their team finds,

evaluates, funds and supports companies they believe have viable solutions for long-term success. “We’ve always wanted to invest in companies … and support our peers in the ventures,” Bsharah said. “We had this theory that the community could help solve a lot of things with investing.” To date, Bloom and Bsharah have invested an average of $180,000 per company and recruited about 130 investors. The duo has found success investing in businesses and then recruiting the company’s founders and employees. Bloom said most founders and employees have never thought about investing in other companies as they are usually strictly focused on their own venture. However, the strategy is working and spreading to friends and family. Also, Bloom said this is a way for more people outside their network to come on board. One of their missions is to bring investment “access for all” so individuals don’t have to come up with tens of thousands of dollars. Instead, Bloom said an individual can look at their budget and invest $1,000 into several companies to limit risk and diversify their holdings. “The idea that we can all write individually small-

er checks, but substantially larger into the company potentially,” Bloom said. “We can actually help the companies even more. Our thought process is to get people to start earlier in investing, sooner than they thought because they have the access.” So far, their budding investment fund recruited a sizable stable of investors who’ve invested $1.3 million with eight companies. The subject-matter experts allow Interlock Capital to evaluate more companies outside of their knowledge base. For example, Bsharah said they are currently examining a company focused on lidar (light detection and ranging), which measures the time it takes for light to travel to the ground and back. The technology has potential applications for mapping and autonomous vehicles. Since Bloom and Bsharah are not experts in science, they brought in other experts to assess the company. Their investors also have a range of financial commitments, from $1,000 to $100,000, Bsharah said. The investors can also choose which companies to invest, rather than the fund investing for them. “We make it very accessible and easy to do,” Bsharah added. “We’re diving in full force to take this to the next level.”

Odd Files Government in Action

Most citizens of Brussels, Belgium, have never seen the Palace of Justice, the largest courthouse in the world, without construction scaffolding surrounding it, as renovations on the facade of the iconic building have been mired in red tape and bureaucratic incompetence for most of 40 years, according to The Bulletin. In mid-March, construction crews finally started work, but not on the building; they arrived to shore up the scaffolding, which has grown outdated and dangerous over so much time. Officials assert this will allow outside renovations to finally commence and predict the scaffolding will come down by 2030. Belgians, however, are skeptical.

The oldest new surf shop in town

I

still cringe when I think of that board, the new board that I shaped in my parent’s garage, flying from the racks and onto the hard as nails asphalt of Coast Highway. It shouldn’t be too bad, just a few fixable shatters and dings, and then as I run out to rescue it — boom! — a Volkswagen Beetle hits it dead center and finishes the job. The worst part is that it was all my fault — I was showing off the new, never-been-waxed stick to my brother-in-law, Lee. Careful not to scratch it, I place it gently onto the rack and kept talking. Somehow I omitted to strap it down before driving onto Laguna’s 101. I had the radio turned up but could still hear the crunch, which is one of the saddest sounds in my memory. But as the apostle says, “All things work together for good,” and apparent misfortune led to something better than a surfboard. It led to a career and a lifetime friend in famed board maker Jeff Grygera, who was just a kid when he bought the thing for 25 bucks and fixed it up to look like new. The resin on that repair dried nearly half a century ago and since then Jeff has fixed countless dings, and shaped, glassed, sanded, hot-coated, glossed and rubbed out more boards than he or I can count. Jeff is all grown up with kids and grandkids

now, and he and his family have owned the little surf shop in Cardiff on San Elijo Avenue for well over a decade. In that time Jeff and his oldest son Jay and youngest son Gino have built a name for quality craftsmanship and customer service. If you’ve lived in Cardiff for a while, you know the place as Iron Cross Surfboards. But, a few weeks ago a violent wind hit and tore the IC sign down. No big deal really — the family was in the process of renaming the store anyway. It will now be called … Oh, wait, I’m sworn to secrecy until this June when they mount the new sign into the now vacant space. This will hopefully be in time for a mask-free gathering of friends to celebrate in style. While I can’t tell you the name of the shop, the Grygeras also have a new model surfboard that’s making waves in and around Cardiff Reef. Known as “California Gold,” the board is considered by some to be a oneboard quiver. According to the oldest of the Grygera children, Jay, “My dad designed this board for people who only have one board, or want to take a single board on a surf trip. It works well in small waves and everything up to six to eight feet.” Jay, who learned the board- making craft from his father and fiberglass master, paddle champion and local ripper, Ding King’s Brian Szymanski (I think Brian is overdue for a Waterspot profile), continues to work both in the factory and the unmentionable showroom. See you in June. Until then stay safe and ride on!

Cybill Moore of Weatherford, Texas, was puzzled by the large basket of men’s dirty laundry left on her front porch, along with a bag of laundry soap and dryer sheets, on March 26. Assuming there’d been a mix-up, she left it on the porch for a day and posted on social media sites to find the owner, with no luck, she told the Weatherford Democrat, so she finally just washed, dried and folded the clothes. That’s when a strange man showed up at the door saying he meant to drop the laundry four houses down, where he pays a woman to clean his clothes. Moore said he was shocked that she had laundered the items for him, and now, “A lot of people have joked about dropping off their clothes for me, since I’m doing ‘community laundry,’” [Weatherford Democrat, 3/29/2021]

Turning used plastic bags into a beautiful and durable material With their entrepreneurial drive and a commitment to better their community, Julie Rais Ellis & Christine Devitt Stoliker have created a new kind of fabric that takes used plastic and turns it into beautiful, durable material. It is called REFUSION®, a new brand of fabric developed using their revolutionary patent-pending process. Of the 78 million tons of plastic packing produced annually, 32% of it ends up on the oceans, which is the equivalent of pouring one garbage truck of plastic into the oceans every minute. And unfortunately plastic production is growing each year. “We all know we have a problem with plastic, but we just don’t have many solutions at this point,” Ellis said. Plastic bags are often used once and thrown away, and they aren’t recycled often because of how difficult sorting and processing the material is compared to hard plastics. That exact issue is what originally motivated Ellis to come up with a solution for this plastic problem in 2018 and to join forces with Christine in the effort in 2019. With REFUSION®, they have developed a way to sort and process plastic bags into a fabric. Then using their design and manufacturing skills they and their team have turned the material into a stylish, eco-friendly new handbag collection. Early in 2019 as Ellis was developing this process, she felt it was unique and at that point she filed a utility patent, and in 2020 Ellis and Stoliker added their new findings to the patent and extended their patent protections internationally. This year, Ellis & Stoliker have been collecting plastic bags from fellow passionate community members and plastic packaging from Bing Surfboards in Leucadia, Seea in San Clemente, and Lululemon. Ellis & Stoliker feel there is huge potential for REFUSION® to scale and actively get communities involved in recycling. REFUSION® is the sister brand to RAIS CASE. RAIS CASE is a premium conscious collection of bags & accessories designed by Ellis founded in 2010, “it’s been a slow and steady road to get RAIS CASE to the place it is today, I have learned a lot through countless hours of design, production and marketing. I am excited to pour these findings into REFUSION®. RAIS CASE can be found on the shelves at The Rising Co., a cooperative retail store that Ellis co-founded with her husband, Grant

OCEANSIDE — An Oceanside woman's newborn died shortly after she gave birth on her own to avoid alerting Child Protective Services to her drug use, a prosecutor alleged April 9 in unsuccessfully arguing that she should remain behind bars while awaiting trial on murder and child abuse charges. A defense attorney countered that Kelsey Shande Carpenter unexpectedly and quickly went into labor at home in a “highly unfortunate” and “tragic” situation and should be released while her trial is pending. San Diego Superior Court Judge David Berry agreed, ruling that Carpenter, who had been held without bail, be released from custody with a number of conditions, including ongoing substance abuse treatment and drug screenings, GPS monitoring and prohibitions against leaving the county without permission. The allegations regarding drug use were the first details disclosed since the 31-year-old defendant’s arrest last month in connection with the Nov. 15 death of the newborn girl identified as Kiera C. in the criminal complaint. Police initially said Carpenter was arrested based on “information received from the follow-up investigation and the autopsy results,” but no other details were previously shared regarding the child's death or why Carpenter was charged with murder. According to Deputy District Attorney Chantal De Mauregne, family

members and friends had advised Carpenter to seek medical care and not to give birth on her own, but she “refused,” as she believed CPS would take the baby away. The prosecutor alleged the defendant's other children tested positive for drugs at birth and were removed from her custody. After delivering the baby at her home, the child went into distress. Carpenter called 911, but "lied about the circumstances of the birth once the police were involved,'' the prosecutor alleged. The baby, who "ultimately bled to death,'' De Mauregne said, was pronounced dead at a hospital. She alleged that the infant tested positive for methamphetamine and a drug called Subutex — also known as Buprenorphine — which the prosecutor said is used to wean off heroin. Defense attorney Brian White said Carpenter was undergoing drug treatment at an outpatient clinic and was administered Suboxone to treat her addiction. After becoming pregnant, she later switched to Subutex because it was "better for the fetus,” he said. White said there were “factual disputes” regarding the prosecution’s allegations, but said Carpenter went into labor quickly, delivered the child and provided resuscitative efforts to the baby before emergency personnel arrived. In granting her release, Berry ruled Carpenter has a minimal criminal history, did not pose a danger to the public and was likely to return for future court dates.

OCEANSIDE — TriCity Medical Center has been honored with 18 awards from the Health Care Communicators of Southern California for its community outreach and public engagement efforts. Each year, The Finest Awards recognize the best health care marketing and communications teams, but this year’s awards recognized TriCity Medical Center’s dedication to going above and beyond to inform and guide the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tri-City Medical Center won the awards show’s top prize, “Best in Show,” for its brand identity campaign that modernized the medical center’s brand to better reflect the communities it serves.

The three interlocking rings in Tri-City Medical Center’s logo are representative of the three cities which came together to form Tri-City Healthcare District. Aqua represents Carlsbad and its shallow lagoons, blue represents the deep waters of Oceanside’s harbor, and orange represents the sunny climate of Vista. “We’re committed to keeping our community informed while empowering them to proactively manage their health,” said Steve Dietlin, CEO of Tri-City Medical Center. “We’re proud of the tireless dedication our team shows day in and day out to delivering on our commitment and are honored that those efforts are being recognized through these awards.”

Petco sets sustainability goal for 2025 By City News Service

No season like avocado season

REGION — San Diego-based Petco Health and Wellness Co. Inc. announced April 13 a commitment to increasing its assortment of sustainable products to 50% by the end of 2025. According to a company statement, half of Petco's assortment of pet products will align with at least one of five sustainability pillars: — Responsible manufacturing: brands and products that use responsible manufacturing practices; — Sustainably sourced materials: products made with materials like organic cotton or recycled nylon; — Sustainably sourced ingredients: food and treats made with ingredients that are more environmentally friendly or emit fewer greenhouse gases; — Responsible packaging: designed to be refilled with the same type of product or for multiple uses; and — Animal welfare: ensure animals are treated humanely and products meet Petco’s cruelty-free standard.

The digester will have two products from the digestion process — methane gas that is captured and reused as a renewable fuel resource for EDCO’s fleet of trucks, and a remaining digestate used for fertilizer. Toth and the Solana Center welcome the solution from EDCO but also continue to advocate for more work to be done on top of the digester. “That is a great solution, it’s an industrial solution that’s going to handle a large portion of our food waste,” Toth said. The EDCO facility will

t’s the most wonderful time of the year. Never mind Christmas. It’s avocado season. My frustrated farmer of a husband caught the avocado bug while we were courting and my parents still lived among 13 Fuerte avocado trees. The first thing he would do, after my dad fixed us a cocktail, was head off into the grove armed with a tall picker. We never went home without several bags full. I still refer to it as my dowry. We lost that supply, sadly, when my parents sold the house and downsized. But the husband planted at least six different varieties of the glorious, pear-shaped fruit in our backyard, just to see which might thrive. It took a few years, but right now we are getting avos from three different trees — Fuerte, Reed and Douglas — with others flowering with the promise of future green gold. I am sad that we don’t have sacks full to give away, as my parents had, but right this very minute we have a lovely basketful on the kitchen table. They’re certain to make my coat shiny, as they did for my dogs, who would munch on the “drops.” Those were the fully ripe ones that had fallen from the tree. Is there a bad way to eat an avo? I love them on toast, in salad, in sandwiches, in guacamole or just split in half with some truffle salt. I rather wish you could eat them like an apple, but I expect I would look like a swamp creature if I tried. That reminds me, you can use them in a facial, too. I

facility is meant to reduce the amount of methane gas produced from food waste in landfills. This latest material recovery facility is one solution brought forth by California’s Senate Bill 1383, approved in 2016, that aims to cut organic waste from landfills entirely. “Organic waste in a landfill creates very potent greenhouse gases,” says Jessica Toth, executive director of the Solana Center for Environmental Innovation. “Scientists say that methane is 86 times more potent and more harmful for our environment than carbon dioxide.”

PURSUANT TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND AMENDED COUNTY HEALTH ORDERS, MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN MEETINGS ELECTRONICALLY. PUBLIC COMMENT PRIOR TO THE MEETING: To submit a comment in writing, email planning@encinitasca.gov and the staff contact for each item and include the agenda item number and/or title of the item in the subject line. If the comment is not related to an agenda item, indicate oral communication in the subject line. All e-mail comments received by 3:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting will be emailed to the Planning Commission members and made a part of the official record. Please note, e-mail comments received prior to the meeting will no longer be read at the meeting. PUBLIC COMMENT DURING THE MEETING (INCLUDING ORAL COMMUNICATIONS, AND COMMENTS RELATED TO CONSENT CALENDAR ITEMS AND ACTION ITEMS): To provide public comment during the meeting, you must register by 2:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting to join the Planning Commission meeting webinar. You do not need to register to watch but must register if you wish to speak. Members of the public will not be shown on video; they will be able to watch and listen, and to speak when called upon. Each speaker is allowed three (3) minutes to address the Planning Commission. Please be aware that the Planning Commission Chairman has the authority to reduce equally each speaker’s time to accommodate a larger number of speakers. All comments are subject to the same rules as would otherwise govern speaker comments at the meeting. Speakers are asked to be respectful and courteous. Please address your comments to the Planning Commission as a whole and avoid personal attacks against members of the public, commissioners, and city staff. To register to speak at this meeting, go to the agenda for this meeting found on the city’s website at: https://encinitasca.gov/government/agendas-webcasts. It is hereby given that a Public Hearing will be held on Thursday, the 6th day of May, 2021, at 6:00 p.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, by the Encinitas Planning Commission to discuss the following hearing item of the City of Encinitas: CASE NUMBER: PLCY-004488-2021 (Repeal Ordinance No. 2020-09); APPLICANT: City of Encinitas; LOCATION: City-wide; PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Public Hearing to consider repealing Ordinance No. 2020-09 (Density Bonus Amendments) and reinstating zoning code language existing prior to adoption of Ordinance No. 2020-09. The Planning Commission will be making a recommendation on the item to the City Council. The City Council will consider the item at a separately noticed public hearing. ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: It has been determined that the proposed Ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). After adoption, Ordinance No. 2020-09 was not effective and could not be enforced because it was an amendment to the City’s Local Coastal Plan that had not yet been considered or approved by the California Coastal Commission. Consequently, the repeal of the amendments included in Ordinance No. 2020-09 and the reestablishment of the prior zoning code text, which remains part of the City’s Local Coastal Plan, is exempt from environmental review pursuant to General Rule, Section 15061(b)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines since there would be no possibility of a significant effect on the environment, in that Ordinance No. 2020-09 never became effective. The ordinance being considered specifies how the City will comply with and implement State density bonus law, and adoption is required pursuant to Government Code Section 65915(a). The bonuses, incentives, and waivers permitted are required by State law, and this ordinance does not permit any bonuses, incentives, or waivers other than those required by State law. STAFF CONTACT: Jennifer Gates, Principal Planner; 760-633-2714 or jgates@ encinitasca.gov. This project does not constitute an amendment to the Local Coastal Program (LCP) as Ordinance No. 2020-09 has not been approved by the California Coastal Commission, and the reinstated zoning code language prior to adoption of Ordinance 2020-09 is part of the City’s approved Local Coastal Program. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, effective March 18, 2020, all City facilities are closed to the public. Hard copies will be mailed upon request. Should City facilities re-open during the public review period, it will also be available for review at the City of Encinitas Development Services Department: Encinitas Civic Center, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024. Copies will also be available at City Hall, Encinitas and Cardiff Libraries, and the Senior and Community Center during normal business hours, once open to the public. Under California Government Code Section 65009, if you challenge the nature of the proposed action in court, you may be limited to raising only the issues you or someone else raised regarding the matter described in this notice or written correspondence delivered to the City at or before the time and date of the determination. For further information, or to review the application prior to the hearing, please contact staff or contact the Development Services Department, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024 at (760) 633-2710 or by email at planning@ encinitasca.gov. 04/16/2021 CN 25290

To register to speak at this meeting, go to the agenda for this meeting found on the city’s website at: https://encinitasca.gov/government/agendas-webcasts. It is hereby given that a Public Hearing will be held on Thursday, the 6th day of May, 2021, at 6:00 p.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, by the Encinitas Planning Commission to discuss the following hearing item of the City of Encinitas: CASE NUMBER: PLCY-004489-2021 (Repeal Ordinance No. 2020-16); APPLICANT: City of Encinitas; LOCATION: City-wide; PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Public Hearing to consider repealing Ordinance No. 2020-16 (Group Home Permit Ordinance) and reinstating zoning code language existing prior to adoption of Ordinance No. 2020-16. The Planning Commission will be making a recommendation on the item to the City Council. The City Council will consider the item at a separately noticed public hearing. ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: The proposed repealing of Ordinance 2020-16 is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) because this is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the CEQA Guidelines since there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly, in that the Ordinance controlled only land uses. In addition, after adoption, Ordinance No. 2020-16 was not effective and could not be enforced because it was an amendment to the City’s Local Coastal Plan that had not yet been considered or approved by the California Coastal Commission. Consequently, the proposed repeal of the amendments included in Ordinance No. 2020-16 and the reestablishment of the prior zoning code text, which remains part of the City’s Local Coastal Plan, is exempt from environmental review pursuant to General Rule, Section 15061(b)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines since there would be no possibility of a significant effect on the environment, in that Ordinance No. 2020-16 never became effective. STAFF CONTACT: Jennifer Gates, Principal Planner; 760-633-2714 or jgates@encinitasca.gov. This project does not constitute an amendment to the Local Coastal Program (LCP) as Ordinance No. 2020-16 has not been approved by the California Coastal Commission and the reinstated zoning text prior to the adoption of Ordinance 2020-16 is part of the City’s approved Local Coastal Program. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, effective March 18, 2020, all City facilities are closed to the public. Hard copies will be mailed upon request. Should City facilities re-open during the public review period, it will also be available for review at the City of Encinitas Development Services Department: Encinitas Civic Center, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024. Copies will also be available at City Hall, Encinitas and Cardiff Libraries, and the Senior and Community Center during normal business hours, once open to the public. Under California Government Code Section 65009, if you challenge the nature of the proposed action in court, you may be limited to raising only the issues you or someone else raised regarding the matter described in this notice or written correspondence delivered to the City at or before the time and date of the determination. For further information, or to review the application prior to the hearing, please contact staff or contact the Development Services Department, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024 at (760) 633-2710 or by email at planning@encinitasca.gov. 04/16/2021 CN 25291

Bringing a message of love, forgiveness to area prisons soul on fire Susan Sullivan

his column is about enlightenment and the roads traveled to get there. Suppose you are lucky enough to come into contact with someone who has dedicated their life to a path of devotion to God and service to humanity. In that case, you get a peek at Divinity and the opportunity to develop more of your own. There is such a light walking the path among us along the North County coast. Her name is Brahman Kyrie (BK), and if you've ever come into contact with her, then you know. This loving soul is on fire for God, animals, and the disenfranchised. The humanitarian causes nobody else likes to do, let alone talk about — like people in prison. I've touched upon our social justice system and the need to reform in a past article, but what are we really doing to see that this happens?

Somebody else will do it, we think. But we are the "somebody else," and BK is at the helm of some pretty fantastic local programs that I'd like to share with the readership. An unbelievable story comes from this petite vibrant flower of a powerhouse woman devoted to God. Australian underworld gang involvement and some brushes with the law before she became

clean and sober 14 years ago, for example. You would never guess it about her, but before she surrendered her will and her life to a power bigger than herself, she was a straight-up gangster. Now she's a spiritual gangster. Following the lead of her higher powers voice, she entered a spiritual school in Australia. She discovered devotion and Sri Sakthi Amma's spiritu-

up our prison systems are those who may have gotten on that same dark path and found themselves tangled in the legal system and landed in jail. They believe they are their crime, their affiliation, or gang. BK is going into Donovan men's prison in San Diego and bringing a message of love and forgiveness. She is bringing these men to a place of acceptance, making amends to their victims, and connecting them to the divine that resides in each and every one of us if we only come into contact with that place. Into conscious contact. Our prison system is being impacted in positive ways through meditation, discussion, healing, music, and other programs introduced through Brahman Kyrie's www.freedomontheinside.com program. This work is pivotal for those serving their time, learning a different way, and preparation for re-entry into society a changed soul. BK calls it PFIFER — Prison Freedom Initiative for Expansion and Rehabilitation. The work is undeniably essential if we are to make the world a better place. It's the perfect place to

start. Prison reform should be just that. It is reforming the prisoner to make re-entry into society as a better version of themselves. This kind of ground-level service work ignites and inspires and loops in The Brahman Project work with animals, as animals’ interaction and care can soften and heal hearts as well. The meditation, mantra, and mala program provides mala meditation beads for each prisoner blessed by Amma. A mural project that will paint the sullen gray walls a bright white and other beautification projects will bring grass areas to concrete. These changes can brighten the outlook of the hardened and help facilitate healing on a soul level. A tattoo removal program has also been introduced. These are life-changing impacts. What an incredible example of what one person’s passion work can do for the world when following their soul's calling. I'm proud to know this beam of exquisite love and light, Brahman Kyrie. Check out her programs and see if getting involved calls you. It could set your soul on fire.

as anaerobic digester are welcome to environmentalists, it is not the magic solution to the problem. “My belief is we need all kinds of solutions,” Toth said. “We need people doing residential composting in their own backyards for their own gardens, we need community composting, we need commercial composting. “The renewable natural gas is really great. But it is still a combustible fuel and it does not return harvested nutrients to our soils,” Toth said. “But we’re making good with the food waste and keeping it out of the landfill so I have no problem with all of that.” To that end, the Solana Center and other local organizations have resources available on composting and

other ways to reduce household food waste. From looking at shopping habits and limiting purchases so food doesn’t go to waste, to planning meals ahead of time. The Solana Center also suggests people start looking at their behavior when it comes to food waste by trying the “kitchen caddy challenge.” For even a single day, setting aside the amount of organic food waste you produce in your kitchen into a separate trash receptacle can be an eye-opening endeavor. “If you’re throwing it in the trash can, it’s commingled and you don’t really know how much is getting thrown away,” Toth said. “That can just give you insight into how much waste you are generating.”

SMALL TALK

in my senior year of high school. My girlfriend and I decided to throw a party and serve as much guacamole as we could possibly whip up. This meant wandering the grove, trying to beat the dogs to the drops. Usually, about half the drop was rotten, but you could salvage enough to make it worth the trouble. The problem was they really stunk. Until you got through trimming the full buckets, the entire kitchen smelled like rotten avocado. And your prep included shoving a lot of bad avocado down the garbage disposal. It took a while to get that smell out of my nose and my house. The party, however, was a huge success. Pass the chips.

In the moment with North County’s Guadalupe Brewery

T

hings are changing, and changing quickly. Recent coronavirus tier changes have allowed North County breweries to both outdoor and indoor with restrictions, and the state has announced a future with no restrictions (fingers-crossed). It’s been a fast-moving avalanche following a year of insanity. Each week I’ll be checking with a local brewery to see how they are responding to the moment. Guadalupe Brewery was founded by Raúl and Lisa Dejú. Raúl is the head brewer, but like any small business, the couple takes on a lot of different jobs at the brewery. The company brews in Carlsbad but serve out of their tap house in downtown Vista on S. Santa Fe Avenue. Cheers!: Hi Lisa & Raúl, thanks for catching me up on what’s going on at Guadalupe Brewery. As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of this wild pandemic, what is the physical and emotional status of the brewery? Guadalupe: Thanks for asking! We’re holding on; working to come back after we were shut down for six months last year. We closed in March, reopening in September. We’ve spent even more time together, which is pretty hard to do as a married couple that works together! We have our homebrew supply store at the brewery location in Carlsbad, so that has been a focus for us over

the year too. Unfortunately, during that time we lost some employees because they couldn’t put the ability to support themselves on hold. Understandably! That’s hard for a small company like us. We think of our employees as family. We miss them and are happy when they move on, and good things happen for them. A good thing that happened for the Tap House during [the shutdown] was that the City of Vista worked really hard to finish remodeling our street.

lo vanilla cream ale is set to make a return in April and has been one of our most popular beers since the days when we were brewing in the Guadalupe Valley. Kaxtilchili is a Saison, and a beer that was definitely inspired by our days in Mexico but created in Carlsbad. Kaxtilchili is the Aztec word for “peppercorn,” and it has four types of peppercorn steeped after fermentation. It’s a very subtle peppery finish to the Saison and was inspired by the multitudes of pink peppercorn trees that were on the winery property where we brewed in the Valle.

Exploring Paso Robles’ world-class wines

P

aso Robles reaches far and wide along the Central Coast, perfectly located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Its beautiful hillsides and lush valleys reveal more than 200 wineries along easy-access roads and around the town square park. Your first decision in Paso will be where to stay. It will be your easiest. The only true wine country resort is Allegretto, nestled in 20 acres that include a working vineyard, olive and fruit trees, 171 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant with a chef’s garden, wine bar and rooms and hallways of collectible art and lush gardens. The Allegretto Wine Tasting Room presents a unique opportunity to sample some of the region’s best award-winning wines, both estate and single vineyard. An outdoor table was prepared in a lacy pavilion upon our arrival, looking out on a 12,000 square foot piazza with inviting seating and nearby whispering fountains. A resort fee is waived with the purchase of a bottle. Our tasting lineup included: the 2019 Cello White, named after the resort’s Cello restaurant that follows the Allegretto culture of joy, discovery and the good life. This wine is a sultry blend of chardonnay and Roussanne. Other wines were the 2018 Trio Paso Robles with Viognier, Vermentino and Roussanne; the 2016 Tannat red Allegretto Vineyards, a favorite of ours with smokey butterscotch on the nose and cherries, tobacco and plum on the palate; the 2017 cabernet sauvignon, Allegretto Vineyards and the 2016 cab sauv Willow Creek Vineyards (owner Doug Ayres home). The soft tannins contribute to a blackberry chocolate nose, fruity, spicy currant on the palate and a cedar box finish. The Italian word Allegretto in English means “with joy,” a feeling you’ll find with every moment of your stay. In last week’s Taste of Wine and Food, Rico wrote of the memorable moments we spent with Daou Family Estates, perhaps the most widely known and respected of the premium wineries helping to gain notoriety for Paso in its quest for worldwide recognition. This column will now take you on a kind of circle day trip around Paso’s Westside wine country, with a few stops along the way. Starting out from the

Allegretto Resort, Paso’s Town Square is worth a visit with its quaint restaurants, shops and more than 20 wine bars that surround walking green belts. Just 10 minutes south, you’ll find Highway 46 West on the south side of the Paso circle of wineries, where we visited Denner. It was awarded one of the Wine Spectator's top 20 wines in the world in 2019 for its Dirt Worshipper, a French Rhone Valley style blend of 98% syrah, with 1% Viognier and 1% Roussanne, two white wines that actually make the wine mix darker. The current vintage is 2018 ( $80). We met with Ryker Wall, an Assistant Winemaker who was a wine sommelier at a nearby restaurant but wanted more and is now fulfilling his dream of making wine. You also want to see Denner for the architecture which resembles a spaceship emerging from an underground hangar. The impressive tasting list also included Flagship wine Ditch Digger with 45% grenache, 20% mourvèdre, 20% syrah and 5% each of Cinsaut, Counoise and Graciano ($80). At Denner Vineyards, all red wines are foot-stomped, so if the time of the year is right, there may be a job for you. Alta Colina, Spanish for “high hill,” is a high country winery, close to the heights of Daou Mountain off Adelaida Rd. on the Northwest side of Paso. Operated by Bob Tillman and Daughter Maggie Tillman, they’ve made superior Rhone-style wines since 2003. The high elevation, hard to get too steep hillsides, present unlimited possibilities for quality. We tasted the Alta Colina wines at their “Summit Tasting,” under a gazebo, in a bone-chilling wind. The 2 reds were scintillating! Both wines with a 2017 vintage, the Sun Worshipper was 88% mourvèdre and 12% syrah ($56), and the Old 900 syrah was 100% syrah ($56). We ended the memorable day with a Daou family and friends dinner at Daniel Daou’s favorite Italian restaurant in downtown Paso Robles, Buona Tavola, featuring Northern Italian cuisine. While the owner chatted by phone inviting us back soon, Anthony Versochi, a Daou employee since 2013 and currently the DAOU Lab Manager, unveiled and signed for Rico and I, his new personally made wine, the 2018 PIUS. This wine is 100% cab sauv, sourced from Paso’s Adelaida District, and has already been awarded 95 points by Wine Enthusiast. Other wineries to choose from in the West Paso circle of winners include: Austin Hope Tasting Cellar, Halter Ranch, Niner Wine Estates, San Antonio Winery and Marketplace,

Near Santa Barbara, a lovely spot to lose your bearings

T

he orientation along Santa Barbara County’s coastline is a bit – well, disorienting. Standing on Summerland Beach (https://www. summerland.ca), 6 miles east of Santa Barbara (how can there be a beach east of Santa Barbara?) and paralleling Highway 101, we are looking across the water directly south at the Channel Islands, and the sun is setting in the west to our far right. Despite the map on my phone, I still feel this isn’t right. Another surprise is the beach itself. Summerland Beach cannot be seen from the 101, so you don’t know it’s there unless you are there. And now we are here. As a giant, orange sun-ball sinks to our far right, we have this ample stretch of clean sand nearly to ourselves, except for a driftwood village and its half-dozen inhabitants fashioned of materials that have washed onto the beach. (See photos at www. facebook.com /elouise.ondash.) Partially vegetated,

LATE AFTERNOON horseback riders enjoy Summerland Beach, just east of Santa Barbara. Though it parallels Highway 101, this wide strip of sand can’t be seen until you are there. The Inn on Summer Hill is a 10-minute walk from the beach, shops and restaurants of Summerland. Photo by E’Louise Ondash

columnar sandstone cliffs rise behind us, and on top of the cliffs, the aptly named Lookout Park. The greenbelt offers ample picnic tables, play structures and even a dog wash ($10) for sand-encased canines. And, oh yes, a killer view. Though this refuge is only a 3.5-hour drive from North County, it seems like a million miles away. We are headquartered for three nights at the Inn on Summer Hill, a boutique

hotel just a 10-minute walk away from this bliss. Our room overlooks the Pacific, and on the inside, it’s obvious that innkeeper Paulette Bermant has provided for every detail of comfort and beyond. Among other things, a generous number of real cymbidiums grace both lobby and bedrooms. There even are fresh flowers in a small vase attached to our bathroom mirror. Bermant credits her

95-year-old mother, a former hotel designer, for these touches. “She paid great attention to detail,” Bermant said. “And she has a green thumb. She always tried to have fresh flowers in the room.” Bermant’s parents built the 17-room inn during the mid-80s, “and my mother always went out of her way to be gracious. I was raised the same way. We do our best to make ev-

eryone feel at home.” That has been a challenge during the pandemic, Bermant said. With regulations changing over the months, the staff has had to adapt. Their efforts are successful. We receive a full breakfast in our room at the time of our choosing, desert and a bottle of wine in the evening, and while housekeeping cannot service the room daily, visitors can request towels, linens and other needed

amenities. Our quiet, end-of-day moments on the beach were preceded by an unintended hike earlier in the day. We set off to find the Seven Falls Trail, a popular 3.2-mile, moderate trek to what appears in photos to be quite an idyllic destination — a picturesque swimming hole nestled among boulders and fed by a small-but-steady waterfall. We never found it; the trail is seriously lacking signage, and other hikers gave us varying directions. So, without consciously changing our plans, we found ourselves on the trail to Inspiration Point. The partially shaded, 3.5mile, moderately difficult trail took us up 1,000 feet to a perch that gave us a more-than-180-degree view of the coastal cities and Channel Islands. It was a suitable reward for our efforts. From here, all seemed right with the world. Later we dined at The Nugget, a two-minute walk from the inn down Summerland’s main street. The restaurant looked to be popular with locals, the walls held great historic photos of Summerland, and our server was familiar with my gluten-free needs. We chose to eat inside where booths were divided by plexiglass and servers and customers were compliant with mask mandates without complaint.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Whether a waiting period is taking longer than expected, or just seems that way, the anxious Lamb would do well to create a center of calm within her- or himself, and not do anything rash. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Practical matters dominate the week, but cultural activities also are favored, especially those that can be shared with someone special in the Bovine’s life. Some important news might be forthcoming. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to know more about a possible career move in order to see if it offers a real opportunity or just a change. You’re sure to get lots of advice — some of it good — but the decision must be yours. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The arrival of hoped-for good news about a loved one dominates most of the week and provides a great excuse for the party-loving Moon Child to plan a special event to celebrate.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A favorable report should give your optimism an important boost as you confront another phase of a challenge. Don’t be timid about accepting advice from someone you trust. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might want to target another goal if your current aim is continually being deflected. But stay with it until you find that first sign of an opening, and then follow through. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although offers of advice might not always please the usually sure-footed Goat, good counsel is always worth considering, especially from those whose experience can be invaluable. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Don’t rush to make up for lost time. Your productivity can be measured not only by what you do, but how you do it. Move carefully until the job is done the way you like it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Emerging facts about someone you know might cause you to rethink your relationship.

The Oceanside Museum Of Art, 704 Pier View Way, Oceanside, presents the free “Behind The Exhibition: Twenty Women Artists NOW” from 7 to 8 p.m. April 22. Join curator Alessandra Moctezuma and artist Julia C R Gray for a virtual discussion. About the exhibit, Moctezuma wrote: “This exhibition is a collective reflection on the challenging conditions women face today. When we started the project in late 2019, we never imagined that 2020 would become one of the most turbulent and tragic years in recent history, or that women would be on the front lines of many

struggles. The pandemic motivated the artists to ponder on the vulnerability and the sacrifices made by families and the community. The cries of George Floyd for his mother provoked them to confront racial injustice. If the art registered women’s struggles, it also celebrated their power—whether as leaders and activists or as mothers and essential workers. “The Twenty Women Artists collective embodies a diverse cross-section of Southern California— they represent different generations and ethnic backgrounds, some of them are immigrants, some are parents, and others are career women or have tackled the balance of being both. This exhibition is an expression of the strong sense of community and support forged around the group.”
