OCEANSIDE — The city’s schoolNEWS district has decided to wait to return students and teachers to a full five-day, in-person class schedule until the fall. Last week, several parents gathered in front of the Oceanside Unified School District office on Mission Avenue as part of RANCHO a rally to push for a full return SFNEWS to in-person instruction for students immediately. The parents, many of whom are part of the Facebook group Parent Association of Oceanside, have previously gathered together in rallies and asked the school board to open sooner for the last several months. Back in April, staff had recommended expanding elementary in-person instruction to five days a week on a modified schedule while keeping secondary students in the current hybrid schedule. Instead of approving staff’s recommendation, the School Board decided in a 3-2 vote to keep elementary students in the current hybrid in-person schedule until the district consulted with county and state health departments as well as the district’s labor union partners regarding classroom sizes and distance. That left only a few more weeks of school this year for the district to decide on whether or not to

DEL MAR — The San Diego County Board of Supervisors has unanimously agreed to allocate $3.5 million in funds toward the replacement project of the Camino Del Mar bridge in the city of Del Mar. The vote came at the request of County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer and is critical to the completion of the needed project on the bridge built in 1932. The city had already accepted a grant several years ago from the federal government that covers 88.5% of the $48 million the bridge replacement will cost, leaving the city

Thank you for supporting our local farmers As restrictions start to lift and the light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter, we cannot help but reflect on the State Street Farmers’ Market and the role it has played on the business recovery in Carlsbad Village. Celebrating its 27th summer in downtown Carlsbad, the State Street Farmers’ Market has become one of the premier markets in all of San Diego County. With its unique location nestled in the heart of the Village directly adjacent to fantastic shopping and dining, it feels more like an open-air European market than a typical Southern California farmers’ market. With 52 vendors and growing, as space permits, the State Street Farmers’ Market welcomes approximately 2,000 people every Wednesday to the downtown area. Many shoppers are weekly regulars who would not miss the opportunity to stock up on the freshest local produce imaginable or buttery salmon. Some walk to the market from their homes downtown and some stop by on their way home from work. For those who have had a long day on the job, the hot food vendors who offer everything from Spanish paella to bao buns, to the occasional gourmet grilled cheese sandwich, the “to-go” options are a lifesaver. And just a friendly reminder that the City of Carlsbad and San Diego County have not yet made any modifications to their public health orders regarding the use of masks but are expected to on June 15th. We want to keep our market goers safe and continue to protect those with compromised immunity so thank you for wearing your mask just a little bit longer. We appreciate your continued patience and cooperation. Don’t forget to make a day of it on Saturday, June 5th and stop by the Makers Market at St. Michael’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church with its stunning ocean view campus. This will be our last of four Makers Markets until we return in the Fall. Over 40 artisans will have their handmade artistry on display for sale from 9am to 4pm, including jewelry, clothing, leather handbags, pottery, candles, woodworking, glass wear, home décor, artisan sweets, and so much more. It is simply impossible not to fall in love with something at the Makers Market. This is an excellent way to support not only the local artists in Carlsbad and North County but the small businesses in the Village as well.

Encinitas reaches agreement with new bike-share operator By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — BCycle, a bicycle-sharing company owned by Trek Bicycles and operating in cities across the United States, will soon be running a pilot bikeshare program in Encinitas after city officials approved the agreement this week. The Wisconsin-based company will work this summer to finalize the placement of stations for its fleet of e-bikes across the city with an official launch of the program coming in September. “We’ve helped launch over 50 bike-share programs across the county since our inception. So we’ve got it down pretty well,” said Morgan Ramaker, executive director at BCycle. This is the second such agreement Encinitas officials have made after a now-defunct agreement with Gotcha Ride to operate a pilot program for bike share in 2019. However, in September of last year, the city terminated its agreement with Gotcha Ride due to supply chain logistics problems related to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the city. “Thankfully BCycle was still interested and had a program that was very similar to the one Gotcha was offering and actually has some additional features that we were very happy as staff to be able to propose,” said Crystal Najera, the city’s climate action plan program administrator. The program will launch as a one-year pilot with three separate oneyear extensions if both the city and BCycle agree. There will be 100 e-bikes and 10 docking stations with 170 docks in total at launch according to the city’s current plans. City staff will also continue to work with BCycle on any encroachment permits it may need for the placement of docking stations. There is also language built into the agreement requiring BCycle to provide bike safety education and

outreach for the residents of Encinitas. BCycle is a subsidiary of one of the largest bicycle manufacturers in the county, Trek Bicycle, which is also the parent company of Electra Bikes located on Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas. Accordingly, there will be a focus on a local North County team operating the bike-share program. “There would be a dedicated local team that would be managing this and their shop would be in Encinitas,” Ramaker said. “They would kind of be embedded within the Electra team so you really get a bit of the best of both worlds here with a local focus but also national support.” Despite the delay due to the issues with Gotcha Ride, the council seems very pleased to be where they are now with BCycle. “I’m really excited about this, we’ve been waiting for it for a long time,” Councilmember Kellie Hinze said. “And I’m pleased in the way that it worked out that we ended up with BCycle as our provider with the local connection to Electra that has been such an amazing community partner to us.” Kristine Schindler, an Encinitas resident and cycling advocate, spoke in support of the program at the council meeting. “This is awesome. I am so happy this is finally taking place,” Schindler said. “I love it that Trek, BCycle and Electra are now on board; the best bike share program I’ve seen.

Young adults from foster care system need COVID relief now

L

By Jasmine Harris

ast year, 2020, was a year like no other, especially for young people who are a part of the child welfare system in California. For many, being in quarantine was a time to pick up new hobbies, finish the series they’d always planned to watch, and spend more time with family or on the internet with friends. But, for me, it was a time when I aged out of the foster care system. I turned 21 on March 26, 2020, 10 days after California’s original stay-athome order. Of course, during those first two weeks, I was barely home because I had been asked to leave the home I was renting due to the pandemic. I was told there would be a private and safer location as long as I paid three months’ rent upfront — an unexpected cost that would challenge anyone. As I scrambled to get together the money to move into new housing, I tried to get excited about this “fresh start.” At the same time, I was told I needed to meet with a social worker to successfully exit extended foster care. At first, I thought nothing of it; I was more concerned with how I was going to get a new bed and fix up a place to live in the middle of a pandemic when many stores were closed or shut down early. After many dysfunctional trips to Walmart to furnish my new studio apartment, buy food and get other basics, I realized my savings were quickly being depleted with no future source of income. At the time, no one was sure what the quarantine would entail or how

long it would last. I wasn’t officially laid off from a job so I could collect unemployment, I was just in between. And that’s where I’ve been ever since, in between — between a rock and a very hard place. I’m 21, on my own to navigate a very complicated and often unfriendly system that does not include young people like me. Any plan I may have had for my future outside of the foster care system was immediately put on hold due to COVID-19. Now I had no social worker, no roommates, no guidance, and no idea of what was to come. It was just me alone in my room with Zoom University. Month after month, counting the days, waiting for some kind of sign of when things may get better. And unfortunately, they didn’t. The twoweek quarantine quickly became six months. Eventually, my landlord could no longer afford to rent to me at the lowered “COVID rates,” and I was told to pay up or go. This is the reality for people all across the country, especially young people and especially current and former foster youth. Like many, I turned to government resources like unemployment and stimulus funds. Being a 21-yearold student-worker didn’t leave many options available to me. No family to turn to, friends all quarantined away, and the social worker who had so diligently cared for me nowhere to be seen. Isn’t it supposed to be about helping people help themselves? In late December 2020, Congress passed legislation on COVID relief that made aid available

for young people who have been in foster care and desperately need help making a transition into living as an independent, self-sufficient adult. The State of Oregon quickly took advantage of the new funding and announced last month that expanded funds would be made available to support higher education for young people who are experiencing or experienced foster care at age 14 or older and who are not yet 27. And additional funds of up to $7,000 per student are available to help eligible young people access housing, transportation costs, and technology needs through the pandemic. Some of these funds will be by direct payment to qualified young adults in the state. The state of California has already received over $47 million in the education funds, under what is called the Chafee grant program. Of this, $5.8 million would go to foster youth students in the form of ETV or Education Training Vouchers. The rest should go directly to youth so they can spend in a manner that best suits their needs. Oregon put together a plan, now California has an opportunity to act. Direct cash payments would allow youth to have some autonomy while maneuvering through this year-long pandemic experience. Jasmine Harris, a former foster youth, is a student, author, educator, and advocate. She is passionate about intentional change and equitable opportunities. Over the past 5-plus years she's become very active in policy and legislative advocacy and education.

f politicians wanted to kill rooftop solar energy production in California, they could not find a better vehicle than a proposed new law known as Assembly Bill 1139. This is a brainchild of Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego, previously best known for authoring AB 5, another destructive bill she pushed into law in 2019 only to see her legislative colleagues a year later rescind many of its onerous provisions. AB 5 was despised especially by folks it was supposed to help. The newest Gonzalez project is — like AB 5 — a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Where AB 5 originally required companies using contract workers to convert them to regular employees who could then be unionized, AB 1139 purports to stabilize conditions for California residents installing solar panels atop their homes. AB 5 caused or threatened to cause an end to the jobs of thousands of Californians, from freelance writers to court reporters to musicians. Similarly, AB 1139 would likely stifle rooftop solar installations around the state, home to about half of all such projects nationally. Here are four things AB 1139 would do in the name of bettering home-based solar power: • It would end the state’s current policy of requiring electric utilities to ensure that “customer-sited generation continues to grow sustainably.” That’s a massive change in state policy. • It would concentrate all renewable energy efforts in the hands of big utilities, including California’s largest utility, which has been convicted of corporate crimes as serious as man-

slaughter. • It would end the current guarantee to homeowners who install solar that net metering will remain stable for 20 years after systems go in. This means the price homeowners get for excess energy they contribute to the general electric grid will drop. • It calls on the scandal-ridden state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to create new net metering rules within two years to set payments to solar owners for excess power at the level currently paid for wholesale power. That, say solar advocates, would cut payments to homeowners who install solar by about 80%. This is a utility company pipe dream come to life, something for which the electric providers have spent years lobbying the PUC. Essentially, AB 1139 disincentivizes homeowners who might otherwise want to install solar panels, the cost of which has dropped by about 70% over the last 10 years. The unanswered question here is why Gonzalez would sponsor this bill, which has already passed one Assembly committee and is now headed to another which Gonzalez chairs, where passage is allegedly greased. Questions repeatedly submitted to her office have gone unanswered. The reality is that this bill helps no one but profit-driven privately owned monopoly utilities, like the multiply convicted Pacific Gas & Electric Co., South-

ern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric. For the state’s overall commitment to reach 100% reliance on renewable energy by midcentury would not change. If home-produced power levels off or is reduced, pressure will increase pressure to expand or build more huge solar-thermal electricity farms in the state’s vast desert areas, says Jennifer Tanner of a group called the Indivisible California Green Team. The utilities won’t build most of these plants, but they would construct added transmission lines to bring the new power from the desert to their grids. Building hundreds of miles of transmission facilities atop what already exists would cost many billions of dollars. Do it and utilities would reap billions in added income over at least 20 years because they are guaranteed a fixed rate of return — often about 14% per year — on investments in new facilities. This inevitably leads to higher rates for consumers, who will also provide — through their monthly bills — money to repay with interest any loans the utilities take for adding transmission capacity. One reason some advocates of the massive solar thermal facilities give for de-emphasizing rooftop solar, as AB 1139 definitely would — is the claim that only the wealthy can afford it. But with today’s lower prices for solar panels, 43% of new installations are done by lower- and middle-income homeowners. All of which makes this one of the most anti-consumer, anti-homeowner and anti-green proposals ever seen in Sacramento. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Del Mar City Council advances pilot utility undergrounding project By Bill Slane

DEL MAR — As part of the citywide undergrounding project, the Del Mar City Council has moved forward with a project to underground utilities along 10th Street and into Tewa Court with work not expected to begin until next year. The project was delayed last March due to the COVID-19 pandemic but was recently picked up again by the council before formally approved and funds were allocated this week. The council has allocated $635,220 in funds from Measure Q to complete the project. “In the case for this project, the designs for

return students full-time now or possibly wait until the fall. During the school board meeting on May 11, the board voted to approve a full return to pre-pandemic, in-person school hours on Aug. 16, the start of the 2021-2022 school year. Todd Maddison, a school district parent and activist, expressed frustration with the board once again for not opening sooner as he has pushed for in the past. “This morning, we saw parents clearly telling the district what they want as we saw when the majority of parents voted for in-person learning last spring, and as we’ve seen almost every board meeting since then over the last year,” Maddison said. Several other parents also spoke during the public comment portion of the board meeting, pushing for five days of in-person instruction to return by the fall since it hadn’t happened yet and accusing the School Board of ignoring their wishes up to this point. The board ended up voting unanimously to reopen schools to five days a week in the fall. President Stacy Begin took great offense to comments accusing the board of not listening to parents. “We have three board members who are parents here,” Begin said. “I’m finding a way to make it work, we’re all finding a way to work and we’re supporting each other.” Begin said the board does not have “bad intentions” but rather laws to follow as well as “many moving parts” that need to work together to make reopening happen. Kyle Dahl, a district parent, wrote a letter to the School Board regarding Begin’s comments a few days after the meeting and asking her to resign as board president. “The parents don’t care if you’re offended about their positions. That’s not why they participate in rallies and board meetings, it’s to advocate

SDG&E, Spectrum and AT&T were privately funded by the residents of the area and now the city is going to be taking over this project,” Kristen Crane, assistant city manager for Del Mar. The next steps will include coordinating with the property owners and utility companies before beginning a bid process for the contractor the city will use. “That also involves identifying all the other utilities that are out in the area, doing a survey to make sure we’ve identified what the existing conditions are and understanding the topography of the area as well,” Crane said. The bidding process

is expected to begin in November with a contract being awarded in January before construction begins. Construction is expected to take three months to complete. This will be just the beginning of undergrounding projects in Del Mar as more undergrounding districts are expected to be created in the coming months. Districts 1A and X1A represent areas in the southern and eastern parts of the city respectively and are expected to be created soon to get more undergrounding done as quickly as possible “We’re going to be back here launching the districts 1A and X1A stat after this,”

Mayor Terry Gaasterland said. Del Mar resident Rene Grevas was one of two public speakers who gave comments in support of the project moving forward. “I sent a letter along with my husband supporting this utility undergrounding district and I must say it was such a pleasure to be so united with neighbors,” Grevas said. “This is the first time we’ve all been in unison on a subject and it’s just been a delight to be part of Del Mar and neighborhood and be a part of this effort.” The only council member opposed to the motion, Deputy Mayor Dwight Worden, shared his con-

Carlsbad Unified announces full return in fall, new start times By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Next fall schools will resume full-time, in-person instruction five days per week, according to the Carlsbad Unified School District. For next year, all classes will be in-person with live teachers, open libraries, meals (breakfast and lunch) and “full-bell” schedules, according to the district. In March, the district reopened schools for secondary students after nearly one year of conducting virtual instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, new start times for high and middle school students were approved by the CUSD board of trustees during its May 12 meeting. The change in start times was mandated statewide under Senate Bill 328, which requires middle school students to begin no earlier than 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. for high school students. Voluntary zero periods are excluded from start time requirements. “I want to thank staff for being proactive on this,” Trustee Kathy Rallings said, as the new legislation doesn’t apply until the 2022-23 school year. “It wasn’t something we had to do, but it makes total sense now.” Prior to the pandemic, the high schools began at 7:30 a.m., with the

middle schools ranging between 7:45 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., according to Rob Nye, assistant superintendent of instruction staff services. The board approved continuing to allow staggered start times for most elementary schools and Aviara Oaks Middle School will begin at 8 a.m. Three elementary schools — Aviara, Pacific Rim and Poinsettia — will begin at 8:15, while the high schools, including Carlsbad Seaside Academy, will start at 8:30 a.m. The district will also continue its COVID-19 mitigation protocols for the 2021-22 school year. Those efforts include requiring daily symptom and temperature screening, as parents must sign an affidavit stating they’ll conduct those checks, according to the resolution. Contact tracing will also continue, along with facial coverings, which is dependent on guidance from the California Department of Public Health; personal protective equipment for staff as required by job classification; hand sanitizing; physical distancing when possible; reducing class size; creating stable groups; cleaning of classrooms and common spaces; plexiglass barriers in high-traffic areas; and limiting visitor access. In addition to the full reopening and new start times, the board also approved opening a sec-

ond preschool location at Aviara Oaks Elementary School. For the past several decades, preschool was only offered at Buena Vista Elementary School, but due to high growth projections, the district opted to open the second location. Currently, the district has 119 preschool students and is expected to reach 179 students by the 2025-26 school year. Enrollment doubled from 2015-20, according to the district. According to the district, one or two classrooms will be moved from Buena Vista and CUSD will add another class at Aviara Oaks. “We are not anticipating, at least through 2526, to outgrow the current location at Aviara,” said Tim Evanson, director of student services. Finally, the board also approved, 4-1 with Ray Pearson voting no, a resolution supporting safe gun storage and to direct Churchill to draft a letter to parents and guardians explaining the importance of safe gun storage and legal obligations.

for their children,” Dahl wrote. “What works for you doesn’t work for everyone, families in this district deal with a variety of challenges. “The statement above is extremely myopic and conveys a total lack of empathy for what the parents of this district have gone through this year.” Reopening in the fall will include mitigation strategies such as requiring students and staff to wear

masks, hand sanitization and physical distancing as needed unless state and local guidelines prohibit these plans. The plans, according to the district, are based on the current downward trends of COVID-19 infections, increased vaccinations, health data and guidance and other virus spread prevention measures its campuses have taken, like continued air purification and current masking pro-

tocols. The district will also reintroduce on-campus lunch, recess, physical education, sports and more in the fall upon its students’ return. Once students return, school campuses will no longer offer virtual instruction. Instead, anyone who wishes to have a completely remote or hybrid learning model can enroll in the district’s Surfside Educational Academy.

cerns with the process in which this has gone through. When Del Mar began this process the undergrounding project advisory committee (UPAC) advised the council to use the Stratford area as a pilot program for the citywide project. “They went through a fairly detailed process to study all of that and they identified the Stratford area 1A as the best pilot area,” Worden said. “And now we are proposing to step away from all of that and do Tewa as a test project without even routing it back through UPAC to get their input on whether or not it’s a good idea. “So as a matter of pro-

cess I’m unable to support doing this. I do view it as an inappropriate jumping of the line.” Worden also noted he does not plan on acting as a roadblock for the work and in fact did vote yes on the funds allocation for the Tewa project.

Callaway, TaylorMade push back on Carlsbad tax changes By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Two of Carlsbad's anchor businesses are locked in a battle over business taxes with the city. TaylorMade and Callaway, two of the biggest employers in the city (and biggest names in golf), voiced their opposition to the city's tax code changes during a May 4 Carlsbad City Council meeting. The new tax code, signed by City Manager Scott Chadwick in January 2019, adjusts how the apportionment formula is applied and allows for a retroactive collection of taxes and penalties. Both companies contend the new apportionment formula is invalid and should not have been applied prior to Jan. 16, 2019. In response to these concerns, the City Council waived the retroactive collection of penalties and some taxes for 2016, 2017 and 2018. TaylorMade and Callaway had outstanding taxes, including penalties of $218,211 and $544,479 respectively, spanning from 2016-2020. Also, attorney Charles Mull, who spoke for both companies during the appeal, said Carlsbad has refused to accept the companies' 2020 tax payment. TaylorMade’s business license tax for 201920, including a penalty, is $147,135, and Callaway’s

total is $417,372, according to the May 11 staff report. According to the staff report, neither company has a valid business license, although the companies disagree. Representatives at Callaway declined to comment and TaylorMade did not respond to our request for a statement. “We believe the way that we’ve been treated … has been entirely unfair,” said Sarah Kim, vice president general counsel and

Sheriff, Caltrans clear out homeless from encampment By Steve Puterski

VISTA — A group of homeless individuals was cleared out of an encampment by law enforcement agencies on May 14 at the on-ramp of Emerald Drive and state Route 78 in Vista. The latest sweep was at least the second this month after a homeless encampment at the site was cleared last week. On Friday, California Highway Patrol, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and Caltrans personnel were on-site to remove

the homeless. Sheriff's Deputy Jordan Botz, who also helps with homeless outreach, said the individuals removed were offered housing through the City of Vista’s contracts with shelters and housing partners. Botz said the homeless are notified 72 hours in advance. According to Botz, more resources for law enforcement’s homeless outreach efforts have been afforded since the pandemic began last year. Botz said he “doesn’t have the solution” to homelessness but said his unit is doing all it can within the law to offer housing, tools and resources to the homeless.

chief ethics officer at Callaway. “We have been nothing but cooperative since the beginning, but city staff has been unwilling to work with us despite multiple efforts to open up communication. Our business license is being held hostage, while the city tries to get its way with this unconstitutional taxing method.” At the heart of the issue is the city's Administrative Order 81, which institutes a new calculation for busi-

ness taxes. The new formula calculates the percentage of a business’s sales in the city, payroll and property, which are added together and divided by three for an apportionment percentage, according to Cheryl Gerhardt, the city’s finance manager. The order also allows the city to retroactively assess taxes and penalties to any business, although the two golf companies were the only businesses that noticed the change and

appealed the city’s action years ago. Gerhardt said both companies were made aware of the new formula in 2018. In 2019, the license collector found TaylorMade owed underpaid taxes and penalties totaling $350,332 and Callaway owed $1,029,274 from 2016-20. Both companies challenged the city and after a Feb. 27 hearing, the license collector revised the amount to the current totals, Gerhardt said. The companies preferred an apportioned formula for sales in Carlsbad, which comes with a different formula and lower tax burden. While state law allows for retroactive application of these municipal codes, Mull believes it is an unfair practice and bad policy. Mull said the business license tax can only be applied to activities within the city, otherwise known as apportionment. Mull also challenged the legality of the new formula, noting the city previously accepted a pointof-sale method until 2017. Mull said the law to allow the formula, which was approved by a ballot measure 10 years ago, puts businesses at a competitive disadvantage and encourages less hiring in order to keep their tax burden lower. “This is a complicated tax issue,” Mull said. “The more payroll you have and

more property you have in Carlsbad, the more taxes. There is no one formula you can look to, to apply. You don’t count the retroactivity from when it was first mentioned.” Attorney Ben Fay, who is working with the city, said the reason for the formula is to be fair and equitable to all businesses. Fay said the legality of the formula is “ironclad” and doesn’t favor any specific business. “(Callaway and TayorMade) also complained about the penalties,” Fay said. “They are clearly stated in the municipal code. Both companies were frequently warned. City staff offered to waive the penalties if they paid by a certain date. They did not.” Councilwoman Teresa Acosta said while she agreed with waiving new taxes and penalties from 2016-19, she was wary of changing the code, especially since no other businesses have vocalized their opposition. Councilman Keith Blackburn disagreed in part, saying that just because no other businesses have lodged complaints doesn’t mean they have not been impacted — some companies may not even be aware of the change. The council also voted to discuss whether to change the code later this year.

Encinitas to consider balloon ban proposal By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — A ban on helium balloons will soon be put in front of the Encinitas City Council after the city’s Environmental Commission voted unanimously to adopt a resolution banning the sale, use and release of such lighter-than-air balloons. Encinitas would not be the first city in California to adopt such a ban with cities such as Glendale, Hermosa Beach and Malibu all having similar ordinances, but it would be the first city in San Diego County to take such an environmental step. “When (helium balloons) are released at celebrations or by accident, people don’t really think about what’s going to happen to them,” Commission-

er June Honsberger said. “But they float up into the atmosphere and they do not disappear. They come back down to Earth and they get caught in trees, end up in our oceans and are mistaken for food by animals.” When balloons return back to the ground, they eventually decompose into microplastics which are then ingested by wildlife. The balloon ribbons can also become tangled around unsuspecting animals and become deadly. Locally, San Diego County is home to a population of federally protected pacific green sea turtles which can easily become entangled in remains of helium balloons or even mistake them for jellyfish. “Jellyfish is their preferred prey and so balloon litter has a high likelihood of negatively impacting these already imperiled

species,” Commissioner Katie Cramer said. The commission found at least eight businesses that sell helium balloons, including a Party City which relies on sales of those balloons for 20% of their business according to information given to the commission. However, the commission says that due to recent shortages in helium, which itself is a finite resource, some retailers and designers have already begun turning to more creative uses of regular air balloons to give an effect of being helium-filled. “So we feel that increased sales of these air-only filled balloon designs can offset the loss of revenue from lighterthan-air balloon sales,” Honsberger said. “And also provide the public with a viable alternative to cele-

brate their event.” This proposed ordinance would not affect balloons that were filled with regular air nor would affect any scientific or weather balloons or hot air balloons. “Although we realize that plastics will be around for a while longer and they will continue to accumulate in the oceans, unfortunately, and in the air and in our water, let’s try to curb plastic pollution where we can,” Cramer said. According to the commission, helium balloons have also accounted for 500 power outages across San Diego over the past five years. Southern California Edison counted over 1,000 power outages in 2019 alone that were caused by mylar balloons. Over a week’s time in May of last year, when families were releasing balloons as part of graduation celebrations, SDG&E says that over 3,800 customers were directly affected by power outages caused by mylar balloons. “Mylar balloons have a metallic coating that conducts electricity. And when it comes in contact with high-voltage power wires it can melt the wires, it can interrupt electric service and it can start fires,” Honsberger said. The public support for the resolution was strong with the commission’s secretary adding they received over 150 emails in support of the proposal.

Epiphany Prep renewal appeal denied by county

Solana Beach sewer rates to remain same

By Tigist Layne

By Bill Slane

SOLANA BEACH — Sewage service rates will remain the same for the next five years for the city of Solana Beach as voted by the Solana Beach City Council this week, but the city is projecting a negative cash flow by the fiscal year 2024 and will revisit a potential rate increase in the future. The city currently has a rate of $682.31 per single-family household or equivalent dwelling unit and that rate is currently sufficient to cover projected revenue requirements as well as maintain reserves, according to the city. However, by the fiscal year 2024, with projected increases in expenditures, the city projects a negative cash flow of around $54,000 at that time with an increase to about $235,000 and $432,000 in negative cash flow the following two fiscal years. The consultants hired by the city, Raftelis Financial Consultants, did not recommend to city staff that a rate increase was necessary due to a loan repayment the city will be receiving through this time period which will help to offset the cash flow. “It should be noted that the repayment of the loan will be completed in the fiscal year 2026 and this fund will be monitored continuously and at any point, should the actual results of the fund deviate materially from this plan then staff will address that deviation,” City Treasurer Ryan Smith said. The concern is with the loan repayment coming to end, and the negative cash flow growing as it is projected to, that by the fiscal year 2027 the city will need to greatly increase rates. “I’m a little worried based on what I’m seeing that if we go the last year or even the last two years with no rate increases, that we will have to do a seven or eight percent rate increase in an outlying year which would be a major hit,” Councilmember David Zito said. “I’d much rather spread that out over time.” Any future increase will require another sewer rate study to be conducted by the city as any fee increase must be supported by a study that shows evidence that warrants an increase. The recommendation presented to the council, which they ultimately agreed to unanimously, was to keep the rates at their current level for the next five fiscal years. Mayor Lesa Heebner posed the possibility of agreeing to increase the rates for only the next three years before revisiting. As part of the rate study, the city has also updated its reserve sewer reserve policies to better support the operation and maintenance of the city’s sewer system.

COLIN WELLS, founder of Veterans Walk and Talk, is helping veterans discover different healing modalities with a focus on cannabis. The group has partnered with MedLeaf Delivery to raise veterans’ awareness about the benefits of cannabis. Screenshot

MedLeaf, nonprofit inform vets about medical cannabis By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Life after the military can be challenging for many veterans, especially those who suffer from disabilities. To help make life easier for these former service members, a local veteran organization and the city’s only current delivery dispensary have teamed up to inform vets about using cannabis as a form of medicine. MedLeaf Delivery, Oceanside’s only non-storefront dispensary, partnered with Veterans Walk and Talk (VWAT), a Southern California-based organization with a mission to help veterans take control of their health journey through exercise, cannabis, psychedelics, other plantbased medicines and community. Each month, VWAT holds community outreach events as well as one-onone walk and talk therapy sessions and group hikes with veterans. This month, VWAT set up shop with MedLeaf at Legacy Brewing Company on May 12 as a way to attract interested veterans. At the event, Colin Wells, founder of VWAT, and other organization partners were there to help discuss his mission and the many alternative modes of medicine, like cannabis, available to veterans. Wells formed VWAT in 2016 with the idea of bringing veterans to the outdoors to share different healing modalities. At the time the focus was strictly on cannabis, but since then the organization has also adopted exploring other plant-based medicines and psychedelics as well. Wells often goes out and picks up veterans from homeless shelters to take them on hikes where he discusses the possibilities of cannabis and other alternatives while also providing “high-quality medicine when they need it.” “Usually we go any-

where from Sunset Cliffs down near the city, to up in the Ramona area and everything in between,” Wells said. Wells is an infantry Army veteran who deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 and 2010. He got out of the military in 2012 and is now considered 100% disabled by military standards. According to Wells, cannabis helped him tremendously throughout his recovery. “It brought me to the place I am now as far as healing,” he said. Cannabis helped Wells overcome his heavy addiction to prescription pills and helped him to continue healing as he used it exclusively for nearly three years after that. “Cannabis definitely helped me get over a lot of humps,” he said. “I was homeless, down and out, living in the woods, and cannabis brought me back to life.” For each veteran who attended, MedLeaf donated four grams of Rick Simpson Oil, also called RSO, a highly potent THC concentrate with various medical benefits and most often used to relieve cancer symptoms. The oil has a thick consistency like syrup and can be applied as a topical or ingested in food or drinks. As a veteran-owned business, MedLeaf has been reaching out and connecting with veterans since it opened in June 2020. Justin Baker, the veteran who owns MedLeaf along with his sister Karen Tomlinson, organized the event at Legacy Brewing Company. “We’re working on getting our name out to veterans,” said Lexi Goudy, office manager at MedLeaf. According to Goudy, cannabis is one of the leading medicines to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an illness that many veterans struggle with after leaving the military. Many non-veterans

suffer from PTSD and can use cannabis as a form of treatment, like Goudy, who developed PTSD after surviving a mass shooting. She connects much of her healing and overall management of her illness to using cannabis. Goudy said MedLeaf hopes to continue partnering with VWAT and other veteran organizations throughout the future.

ESCONDIDO — The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) unanimously denied an appeal from Epiphany Prep Charter School on May 12 in which the school asked for a two-year renewal. The Escondido Union School District (EUSD) board unanimously rejected a five-year renewal for Epiphany Prep Charter School back in February, after the state deemed the school “low performing.” Epiphany Prep is in the process of challenging the decision with county and state officials in a lawsuit that claims the district and the California Department of Education is not accounting for growth in student learning. The charter school, which opened in 2016, serves more than 750 primarily low-income students in transitional kindergarten through eighth grade. More than half of the school’s students are English learners, at least 91% are from low-income families, 98% are Hispanic and 100% of students receive either free or reduced lunch. The board heard a presentation from Epiphany Prep President Daniel Rivera and the school’s principal Anna Lozano-Partida on why the school

should be renewed. The board received 24 public comments on the issue, with the majority of the comments in support of renewing the charter school. EUSD Superintendent Dr. Luis Rankins-Ibarra shared a public comment promising a smooth transition for Epiphany Prep’s students, families and staff if the appeal is denied. “I want to remind the board to let the data speak for itself… our board made the determination that [Epiphany Prep]’s petition for renewal did not meet the requirements for renewal,” Rankins-Ibarra said. “Please keep in mind that the decision here tonight starts with the preTURN TO RENEWAL ON A12

‘Blown Away’ star takes up residency at Carlsbad glass studio By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A breakout star will be on display blowing minds (and glass) as she takes up residency at Barrio Glassworks. Nao Yamamoto, a Japanese-born glassblowing artist featured in the Netflix show “Blown Away,” is the first to take up a residency at the new hot shop at 3060 Roosevelt St. in Carlsbad.

Yamamoto's style, grounded in positivity, happiness and empowerment, will be featured in her installation from May 25-28 at the studio. Yamamoto said she is excited about the opportunity to create an inspirational piece of art showcasing her talent. She’s calling it, “Let your thoughts grow.” “The idea is to make

glass seeds, leaves and flowers,” Yamamoto said. “I saw this process as an evolvement, so I’m excited to try out different techniques.” Yamamoto’s journey to becoming a fan-favorite began in Tokyo as a child. Her parents are ceramics artists, but Yamamoto said was drawn to glass with its fragile, yet beautiful artwork.

SPENCER JONES, a former La Costa Canyon High standout, is finding his groove again at Vanderbilt University after a series of injuries interrupted his playing time. Jones, a designated hitter, here smacks a two-run home run in Vanderbilt’s win at Ole Miss on May 15.

Jones feels dandy at Vandy, with his injuries in the past

T

he pulverized baseball landed with a thud and the blast came with a smile and a sigh from Spencer Jones. Jones, Vanderbilt’s can’t-miss prospect from La Costa Canyon High, smacked Ole Miss with a two-run homer on May 15. It went over 400 feet and had his father’s phone in the stands chirping with hometown messages from well more than 1,000 miles away. “It was so awesome to be in the stadium when that happened,” said Chris Jones, who was among the 13,000 fans at Swayze Field in Oxford, Mississippi. Jones’ blast in the showdown between these ranked teams couldn’t prevent the Rebels from taking the three-game series. But what Jones took from his long fly was that it’ll be a short time before he’s 100%. “It’s comfortable knowing that despite some injuries, I’m not too far behind,” Jones said. The 6-foot-7, 225-pound Jones was always head-andshoulders above others and that was long before reaching LCC. The speedy and elegant Jones’ potential was such as a pitcher and a hitter that his success had long been predicted. His expressway to the majors was either going to be as a freshly minted millionaire via a first-round pick in the MLB draft or after a stint at a college known for its baseball. The personable Jones didn’t have it made in the shade, but he knew where the shadow was if needing a respite. But baseball, and life, is known for making folks handle the dark times and they found Jones in successive seasons.

Jones’ senior year at LCC, where he was among the most highly decorated prep players in the nation, was shattered when his left elbow balked on a pitch in 2019. A broken elbow snapped teams’ interest in using their precious draft currency on Jones. The Los Angeles Angels bit, but not until the 31st round. His fallback plan was accepting a scholarship to Vandy, and that was dandy with the academic-minded Jones. Soon after completing the rehabilitation of his prized elbow’s structure, one of its ligaments popped. That led to Tommy Jones surgery for Jones in 2020, wiping out yet anoth- JONES er season that was abbreviated because of the pandemic. Instead of deciphering ways to outsmart pitchers and attack hitters, Jones’ days were spent in medical facilities and not on the diamond. So, when the polite Jones raised his left arm when spotting a former Encinitas Little League coach at Ole Miss, it wasn’t for a brohug. Instead, Jones revealed the impressive scar on the inside of his elbow, after it was repaired once again. For a spell, instead of Jones having the world by the tail, it seemed to be the other way around. “It was a devastating blow and at first it was pretty frustrating,” Jones said of his second injury. “I was thinking, ‘Why me?’ because I was starting to pitch again, play in the outfield and show everyone what I could do.” Instead, the competitive battles players thrive on became Jones vs. Jones. The focus was on getting himself better, but only after Jones conducted a clubhouse meeting of one.

“It was daunting having to have another year of recovery and not knowing how you would look a year later,” Jones admitted. “To know that you have 10-12 months, which is a lot of time, to be in the training room doing stuff by yourself ... all the tasks that are not real glamorous, but you have to tell yourself in the long run they will pay off.” Jones’ pity party was brief. He hitched up his britches and got busy on getting his body right. With one swing from his lethal left-handed bat down South, the sophomore designated hitter from North County had Ole Miss fans saying, ‘Gosh oh mighty!’ “He gave me something down-and-in and I sold out on it,” Jones said of his second collegiate homer. “I wanted to get the bat there early and get out in front of it.” What’s behind him are ailments that tested his character and motivation. Maybe the injury bug should go elsewhere because Jones, who often says the No. 2-ranked Commodores’ catch-phrase of “Anchors Down,” didn’t retreat when he was challenged mentally and physically. He’s compensating for lost time far from his Encinitas home. His promising career took a detour or two, but he’s back on track, hitting .267 after 75 at-bats. “That home run felt great,” Jones said. “Especially in making the crowd quiet at Ole Miss.” In a region that lives for baseball, fried chicken and sweet tea, Jones fits. Even if his words blow his cover. “I don’t have a Southern twang yet,” he said. “I have to remind them I’m still a California beach bum.” Albeit one who can hit, and his massive home run was a reminder for everyone. Jones’ name may be common, but he’s no ordinary player. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him @jparis_sports.

Del Mar discusses future of public transportation By Bill Slane

DEL MAR — Del Mar City Councilman Dan Quirk made a presentation to the public and his fellow council members this week starting a discussion on the feasibility and economic impact of making large investments into the rail system. Quirk, using statistics that show low ridership for both the Coaster and the Amtrak Surfliner, questioned the amount that SANDAG is prepared to invest in the rail line as part of their “5 Big Moves” 30year plan. “A lot of the dollars, it’s about $170 billion or so, are probably dedicated to rail and when you look at some of the struggles of the Coaster, I’m not sure that makes a ton of sense,” Quirk said during his presentation. Prior to the pandemic, the Coaster served on average 5,196 riders on weekdays which translates to 127 riders per mile. Ridership in public transportation like the Coaster has dropped significantly during the pandemic and recent forecasts from NCTD don’t appear to expect it to rebound any time soon. “For the year 2031 they are expecting almost no rebound,” Quirk said. “And when you think about people being concerned about germs, health issues, they may not want to deal

with mass transit in the future.” Quirk also showed numbers showing the amount of freight being moved through San Diego County is low relative to the amount that is moved by trucks on the highways. “Effectively I see that as trucks carry 99%-plus of the freight volume in the county,” Quirk said. “So is trying to maintain separate infrastructure for something that transports

just 0.5% of our freight volume, is that a prudent decision? It’s expensive to maintain these separate modes. And I don’t think I would if it was just me.” The presentation posed a vision of future investment in small self-driving, electric cars that function as a sort of mass transit on the existing highway systems. “The very notion of mass transit could change. Rather than fixed-line rail

we have small, electric vehicles that can pick people up at their door and drop them off at their place of business or wherever they need to go. I think there is a very significant possibility that happens and we should probably be encouraging SANDAG to look at that,” Quirk said. Quirk ended with several recommended actions for the city council including a request for SANDAG to look more into

the feasibility of electric self-driving cars and that more cost-benefit analysis be done on the proposed tunneling project that will move the current rail line off the bluffs in Del Mar. In discussions following the presentation, there was not much agreement with the picture Quirk had painted. “Suffice it to say that I respectfully don’t agree with Dan on much of what he’s advocating. But that’s good. This kind of discussion is good for all of us to test each other’s ideas,” Deputy Mayor Dwight Worden said. While some of the issues brought up by Quirk had to do with the cost and low revenues of the current transit systems, Councilmember Dave Drucker explained why he feels that is irrelevant when it comes to public transportation. “No transit system makes money. It is a money-losing proposition,” Drucker said. “Why is it that they lose money? It is part of the social compact that government has made with its residents that they will provide for people to get to work.” Discussion among the members remained extremely cordial and respectful throughout the process and all agreed there would be much more to discuss on public transportation in the coming months.

Reward for stolen metal sculpture By Jordan P. Ingram

ENCINITAS — A local artist is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of a metal kinetic sculpture stolen from his driveway on Sunday evening near the corner of Orpheus and Vulcan avenues in Encinitas. The 8-foot tall wind-driven figure, crafted by longtime Encinitas resident Jeffrey Laudenslager, is made of titanium and stainless steel, weighs less than 100 pounds and is valued at more than $30,000. Laudenslager said the raw materials alone are worth at least $3,000. At 9:47 p.m. on May 16, witnesses reported seeing the metal sculpture in the

NCTD gets $4M for hydrogen fuel station in O’side By City News Service

OCEANSIDE — The North County Transit District announced this week the California Energy Commission has awarded it a $4 million grant to construct a hydrogen fueling station at the agency’s West Division Breeze Facility in Oceanside. Once constructed, the station is intended to have the capacity to support up to 50 hydrogen fuel-cell electric buses. NCTD has set a goal of transitioning its entire fleet to zero-emission buses by 2042. “NCTD remains committed to being on the forefront of zero-emissions technology, providing clean transportation choices for our customers, and improving the air quality in our communities,” said Tony Kranz, NCTD board chair and Encinitas deputy mayor. “This grant will enable us to do just that and accelerate our transition to a zero-emission fleet,” Kranz continued. “What’s more, this new technology and infrastructure will improve overall Breeze operations by decreasing the time needed to refuel, expanding the service range, and increasing the fuel economy of our fleet.” The California Energy Commission grant advances the district’s transition from compressed natural gas to zero-emissions bus operations by approximately four years, NCTD staff estimate. NCTD intends to design, construct and commission the hydrogen fueling station infrastructure at its Oceanside facility by mid-2022.

Carlsbad to randomly draw redistricting commission By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council approved the creation of an independent redistricting committee by random drawing during its May 11 meeting to address the city’s elected districts for the remainder of the decade. The meeting revealed a complex, and sometimes confusing, process to get to the point of how the council will set up the commission. In the end, the council approved a seven-member committee with three alternates all drawn at random. As for the political ties for the seven primary members, two each will be democrats and republicans with the final three as “other.” Also, the council will require an individual to be a registered voter 18 or older, three alternates — one from each party and “other” — and be a resident for at least three years. “What we are proposing to do is digital advertising that goes to mobile phones as well as desktops,” Kristina Ray, director of community and engagement, said of the city’s awareness campaign. “We want to make sure we’re reaching some of the people who don’t typically opt into government processes like this.” The city went to district elections in 2017 and the current map was created by two residents — Arnie Cohen, a Republican, and Brian Flock, a Democrat who has since moved to Utah. The districts each contain similar elements, such as the coastline, Interstate 5 and bordering another city, as a way for each council member to be included with those issues. Regardless, the majority of council members — Cori Schumacher, Pri-

ya Bhat-Patel and Teresa Acosta — felt a commission was a better method to determine the district map. The commission will use 2020 census data to create the maps, which are now a blank slate as the council cannot direct the commission as to how to build the maps. Bhat-Patel and Acosta stressed the need for more fairness in the process and more equity within the se-

lection of the commissioners. Bhat-Patel said those marginalized populations and people of color should be a focus with encouragement from the city to apply. Mayor Matt Hall, along with Councilman Keith Blackburn, each said they preferred tweaking the current map, rather than forming a commission, as the lines are not expected to change too much as the city’s population increased

by just more than 9,000 residents over the past several years. Regardless, the council debated statistics and probability surrounding a number of concerns with a random draw and political representation and how those were determined. “My feeling is there is going to be a wave of people applying,” Hall said. Schumacher, meanwhile, argued for the coun-

cil to install a random draw based on which district had a majority for a specific political party. For instance, if districts 1, 2, 3, each had a majority democrat registration, democrats would be selected followed by a mandatory republican in District 4 and three atlarge selections. No district has a political party with more than 36% of the registration, according to staff. However, the council decided the four districts will have their own drawing and three citywide selections to cover the rest. Specific to the districts, a random draw will be conducted to determine the order of the draw by district, according to the council. The council also discussed not imposing an age limit and including 17-yearolds who were pre-registered to vote. Hall said the commission could be made up entirely of 17- and 18-year-olds, leaving the council speechless for several seconds. “Each district should actually be whichever majority is present,” Schumacher explained. “Anything that’s offset that should be citywide.” The council had three options to determine the commission, including a panel of judges provided by JAMS San Diego or a random draw variation, where the City Clerk’s office draws half plus one of the names and then those commissioners select the remaining individuals. The city will conduct an awareness campaign to encourage residents to apply, while also laying out the timeline for the public. The map must be approved no later than April 17, 2022, and there will be four public hearings plus two mapping workshops. Board Vice President Rick Shea ultimately proposed a motion to deny the renewal. “I have grave concerns of its ability to remain fiscally sustainable and serious concerns about the academic performance and progress, particularly of children with disabilities. I find our staff report complete and compelling,” Shea said. The board unanimously supported Shea’s motion.

Supervisors OK plan to ‘reimagine’ foster youth school By City News Service

Rep. Issa introduces military health care bill By Tigist Layne

REGION — Congressman Darrell Issa, who represents the 50th Congressional District, introduced a bill last week that aims to protect military retiree health care by extending the deadline for military veterans to transition into new health care policy changes. Since Jan. 1, 2021, certain TRICARE retirees (who entered the military before Jan. 1, 2018) have 180 days to establish a payment plan for new enrollment fees. The TRICARE Retiree Protection Act would extend the 180-day grace period to one year, to prevent these veterans from losing their health coverage. According to the bill, covered beneficiaries that have not received covered notice, can also, at any time during 2021, re-enroll in TRICARE Select. “When it comes to our veterans, promises made must be promises kept. “The TRICARE Retiree Protection Act is common-sense reform to extend a transition period so military retirees don’t lose health care coverage for themselves and their families,” Issa said. “I am proud to work with Senators Daines and Manchin to ensure that this consensus solution goes forward and protects those who served our country.” TRICARE is the federal health care program for uniformed service members, retirees, and their families around the world and is managed by the Defense Health Agency under the Assistant Secretary of Defense.

Daines (R-Mont.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) introduced the companion legislation in February 2021. Issa, an Army veteran himself, has spoken about veterans and the military as one of his key platforms. “Service members and veterans come from all walks of life and all corners of the country to protect and defend this great nation through military service. The federal government must keep its commitment to our hardworking, committed veterans to deliver the care and services they have earned,” says Issa’s website. The new bill comes in the midst of a congressional probe led by Issa into the Pentagon’s denial of permits for a Memorial Day charity event that has been held annually in Washington, D.C., for more than 30 years. The event, called Rolling to Remember motorcycle ride, formerly known as Rolling Thunder, brings veterans and others to the area to commemorate war veterans, including prisoners of war and those missing in action. On May 6, Issa introduced the Let Veterans Remember the Fallen Act, legislation that would require the Pentagon to host the Rolling to Remember event. The 50th District encompasses the central and northeastern parts of San Diego County and a portion of Riverside County, including the communities of Fallbrook, San Marcos, Valley Center, Ramona, Escondido, Santee, Lakeside, El Cajon, Temecula and the mountain and desert areas of the San Diego-Imperial County line. said. Laudenslager, 75, filed a police report with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department but told The Coast News that he just wants the item returned. “I would love to get the piece returned and give these guys a fair warning,” Laudenslager said.

ESCONDIDO — San Diego County supervisors this week unanimously approved a proposal to “reimagine and restructure” the Escondido-based San Pasqual Academy, which educates and houses foster youth, in a manner consistent with state and federal law. Supervisors also directed Helen Robbins Meyer, county chief administrative officer, to work with stakeholders to ensure that SPA also serves young people with different needs, to look at ways to serve alumni and explore the possibility of transitional housing, and enter into agreement with the state for an extension until June 2022 that also allows for a transition. The academy is slated to close in October due to declining enrollment. State and federal law changes regarding foster care will also end funding to SPA, described by county officials as a first-in-the-nation residential educational campus designed specifically for foster youth. Board Chairman Nathan Fletcher suggested the changes, saying a restructure was necessary for San Pasqual to stay open. “Our commitment to the youth in our county compels us to find creative and new ways to best meet the needs of our most vulnerable,” Fletcher said after the meeting adjourned. “While the model will change, our commitment to our youth and services at this location remains the same.” Fletcher said the board needed to look at all options under state and federal law. SPA can continue to be a place that serves our youth, he said, “but it’s going to be different. It cannot remain as is. If we get focused on that, there's gonna be a lot of good things we can do.” Supervisor Jim Desmond originally proposed requesting an extension for the academy, but withdrew

Average county gas price rises By City News Service

REGION — The average price of a gallon of selfserve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose twotenths of a cent Thursdayfor the second consecutive day to $4.158.

that after Fletcher put his suggestion forward. Despite a difference of opinion over the academy’s long-term future, the topic has “sparked a lot of passion and energy,” Desmond added. “We all agree we’ve got something really good here. This is a jewel of San Diego County. I hated giving up on it altogether.” Desmond said while he strongly supports SPA's existing program, he also understands that the state won’t allow that. In March, supervisors had unanimously agreed to ask the state Department of Social Services to extend

the academy’s operations. Before the supervisors voted Tuesday, they heard from academy supporters. Andrea Reynolds, a member of Friends of San Pasqual Academy, reminded supervisors that by the time a foster child comes to SPA, he or she has “been through horrific circumstances,” including homelessness. Many are traumatized, angry and in pain, and need more care than a typical foster family can provide, she said. “At SPA, the teens can heal among their peers,” Reynolds added. “You can-

not recreate this sense of community.” Tuesday's meeting was the first in over a year that featured limited in-person attendance. Previously, board meetings were closed due to the COVID- 19 pandemic. Along with high-level county staffers, Fletcher and fellow Supervisors Terra Lawson-Remer and Nora Vargas were seated in the chambers of the county Administration Building, located on Pacific Highway. Joel Anderson and Desmond participated via teleconference.

costs of the project. “If we don’t, then we’d have to reimburse for the $1.15 million and all we would have is a plan,” Del Mar Mayor Terry Gaasterland told The Coast News. “Absolutely no construction at all. And once it stops we’d have to spend all that money again for planning. “That’s the future if we were unable to pay, which was the future up until yesterday.” Del Mar is now confident with the help from the county that they will be able to cut enough corners and costs to cover its remaining obligation from the federal grant. “What Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer has done, is she has made it possible by picking up part of this obligation. She’s made it possible for this bridge to be reconstructed,” Gaasterland said. The Camino Del Mar bridge has been in need of repairs or replacement for some time. The bridge was widened in 1953 and modified again in 2001 but since those improvements, the bridge has begun “crumbling,” according to Mayor Gaasterland. Gaasterland described the project as “shovel-ready” with the planning portion of the replacement already completed. The city still however will need to decide how they plan on directing traffic once construction is able to begin. There was some dissent among county supervisors to allocate these funds to Del Mar, a smaller and more affluent city in the county. Supervisors Joel Anderson and Jim Desmond, who both represent areas with less financially secure residents, expressed their concerns before ultimately agreeing to vote yes. “I believe that we have to support each other, so I’ll support this today,” Anderson said. “It’s hard for me, knowing that I have communities of color who are living at poverty level, and I think about them (compared with) someone who’s had a tough go of it in a mansion.” However, Del Mar, a city that is heavily reliant on sales tax revenue, has been struggling financially through the COVID-19 pandemic. Del Mar expects to keep the cuts they have been forced to make through the pandemic to ensure that they will hold up their end of their obligation to complete the replacement of the bridge. “We will keep cutting in order to get the money into that bridge that we need to,” Gaasterland said.

Senior living residents commit to volunteering By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO — May is Older Americans Month, and Redwood Terrace Senior Living in Escondido is highlighting two of its residents that, for years, have dedicated their time and energy to serving their communities. For more than 4 years, 80-year-old Michiko Rice has participated in the RARE Bear program, which provides custom, handmade teddy bears to children with rare diseases. A lifelong quilter, Michiko uses leftover cotton fabric to make the intricate teddy bear “skins” from scratch. After they’re stuffed, she and other volunteers sew them together and embroider eyes, nose and other features. After Michiko’s husband retired from his work as a dentist in the Navy, they started volunteering in the community together. “We used to help with Meals on Wheels… and help volunteer at the community clinic, taking care of children and we also used to drive cancer patients to chemotherapy,” Michiko said. “I don't know, I just like to help people and make people happy.” Michiko said that she probable makes more than 30 bears each year, but her favorite part about it is seeing photos of how happy the children are with their bears.

MICHIKO RICE, 80, a resident at Redwood Terrace Senior Living in Escondido, holds teddy bears that she made for the RARE Bear Program. Michiko has been volunteering with the organization for more than four years. Photo courtesy of Redwood Terrace

“I think I have about eight pictures of kids with some of the bears I’ve made. You don't get that picture every time, but once in a while you get one, and it’s a very special gift,” Michiko said.

Pat Kellenbarger, one of Michiko’s neighbors at Redwood Terrace, has dedicated much of her life to volunteering. The 84-year-old has worked with countless organizations and causes

throughout her life including making helmet coolers for troops overseas, collecting bras and bags for local homeless women, maintaining Little Free library stations near the community with children’s books,

advocating for the welfare of thousands of junior enlisted military families and making trauma pillows for kids in emotional crisis. I am either blessed or cursed within an ordinary amount of energy for my, for my age,” Pat said. “And I have been blessed by God with DNA, with a caring heart and a history of caring hearts in my family to help other people.” Pat, a Marine Corps widow and former social worker, was the director of a nonprofit organization for 14 years responsible for helping junior military enlisted families in trouble. “I have a heart for helping other people. I always have,” Pat said. “I serve on several boards of directors. I am also a very active hands-on volunteer and I work with three or four agencies in the San Diego area. This year with COVID, I have also been helping my neighbors and friends here at Redwood Terrace, those that can't get to the grocery store and the pharmacy and things like that.” Pat said she has no plans to stop her volunteer work any time soon and that she can’t wait for what is to come. “I’m 84 — or as my husband said, ‘39 and holding,’” Pat said. “I’m so grateful for all that I’ve gotten to be involved in, and I’m so excited to keep it going.”

REGION — The median price of an existing, single-family detached home in San Diego County rose to $825,120 in April, an increase from $800,000 a month ago, mirroring a spike across California that brought the state’s median price above the $800,000 benchmark for the first time, a real estate group said May 17. San Diego County’s median home price was $671,000 just one year ago. California’s median home price was $813,980 in April, with the rise fueled by heated market conditions and a shortage of homes for sale, according to the California Association of Realtors. “Not only do skyrocketing home prices threaten already-low homeownership levels and make it harder for those who don’t already have a home to purchase one, it also brings to question the sustainability of this market cycle,” C.A.R. Vice President and chief economist Jordan Levine said. For the Southern California region as a whole, April’s median home price was $750,000, a 6.4% increase from last month’s $705,000.

After more than 420 days of limited operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the nonprofit Gary and Mary West PACE are resuming in-person recreational programming at their state-of-the-art center in San Marcos. “Our Adult Day Health Center provides the much needed in-person socialization our participants have desperately needed after a long year of stress and isolation,” says Rena Smith, executive director, West PACE. “We have taken the highest safety measures to bring participants back and look forward to finally WEST PACE is resuming in-person recreational programming seeing their smiling faces at its San Marcos facility.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Banking while surfing the American recovery’s wild economic tides getting deals done

Patrick A. Howell

S

ince the onset of the pandemic in February 2020, the coronavirus has dictated economic outcomes. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the American economy experienced an unprecedented and historic expansive growth from 2009 until the pandemic struck in 2020. In fact, according to the same IMF blog, the “Great Lockdown” has been the worse economic downturn since the Great Depression, including 2007’s Great Recession. Enter A.J. Moyer, CEO of C3bank, a seasoned financier at the top of his game riding a declining COVID-19 tsunami in the global economy's vast ocean. And just like a surfer taking down gnarly waves in Fiji, Costa Rica and Western Samoa, or closer to home in Southern California, Moyer is focused on the market’s ebbs and flows to make a lasting footprint in North County and the region.

No doubt Moyer’s experience as a globe-trotting surfer (Moyer is a former team captain of the University of San Diego’s surf team) contributes to his clear-eyed appreciation of capricious market conditions. “That’s how we operate our business, with cautious optimism. So, we are prepared for any type of scenario,” said Moyer. “The economy continues to move forward, but in banking, we’re always looking at different scenarios as well.” A class valedictorian with years of experience as a senior auditor and C-level accounting executive, Moyer effortlessly alternates from a macroeconomist's mindset to a regional banking manager intimately familiar with the pulse of a fickle local economy and unpredictable macro-conditions. Specifically, Moyer and his team at C3bank are focused on three key ideas: small business survival, growth and positive cash flow exceptionalism. “With our diverse (entrepreneurial) background on our board (of directors), from an optometrist to an engineer who holds many patents nationwide, the common denominator is they have all been familiar

with different forms of business forecasts and have run multiple companies in their careers,” Moyer said. That is serendipitous for North County, if not a positive local business omen — a team of tenured small business owners, with nearly 200 years in relevant experience, running a bank that seeks to partner with small businesses. For example, C3bank originated over $175 million in payroll protection program (PPP) loans to support local business owners throughout the pandemic. And Moyer’s cautious optimism is aligned with leading national economic

indicators. In the first quarter of 2021, national unemployment statistics are down and jobs are up; average hourly earnings are up, and real gross domestic product (GDP) has increased. All indicators including consumption, investment and interest rate indicators point to an ongoing recovering market as well as economy. There is an inverse correlation between diminishing COVID-19 statistics and the collective economic fortunes of all. Weekend and weekday eye tests show entertainment venues reopening, vaccinated people coming together without masks per CDC guidelines, increasingly congested commutes to the workplace and car lines outside the schools. GDP increased at an annual rate of 6.4% in this year's first quarter. Many economists are bullish on their 2nd and 3rd quarter 2021 forecasts. Moyer also has some strong ideas about coming out of a once-in-a-century pandemic. “And so, what we are doing is re-engaging with customers as much as we can and reassessing their strategic plans with them,” Moyer said. “Some companies have struggled very

mightily with the COVID impact. Some have actually done really well and maybe sitting on a surplus of cash. “So, from our perspective, our goal is to reconvene with these local business owners, understand what they're trying to achieve going forward, how their businesses have developed over the past year and how we can best assist them looking forward.” There it is again — the effortless balancing of a regional manager mindset with a C-level executive toolbox that has made C3bank a local bedrock providing small business super fuel. Established in 2014, C3bank (formerly First National Bank of Southern California) has branch locations in Encinitas, San Marcos and Riverside. The bank enjoys a unique economic niche — just three locations occupy nearly 10% of the local market, according to the Federal Depository Insurance Company (FDIC.gov). As a company, C3bank competes with Wells Fargo, JP Chase and Bank of America, outflanking any number of small independent local institutions. In 2014, C3bank’s assets were $140 million. Today, the financial institution’s assets total

M arketplace News

nearly $625 million. C3bank is ranked as one of the fastest-growing banks in California and continues to be rated as one of the healthiest banks in the nation (depositaccounts. com). Two national rating services, Bankrate.com and Bauer Financial, have both given C3bank their highest five-star rating. Indeed, Moyer knows a thing or two about the balance sheet, income statements and putting a deal together. And he and C3 Bank seem intent on getting small business deals done in North County San Diego. AUTHOR’S NOTE: In Part II, I will focus on Moyer, C3bank and PPP relief. Forthcoming columns will feature Carlsbad’s True Diagnostics and also take a look at Carlsbad as a national and international economy.

degrees each coupled with different themes. Now, Yamamoto said she doesn’t have to live paycheck-to-paycheck and can focus more on passion pieces, rather than scratching out pieces just to meet her obligations. “I think people have seen my personality … and resonated with my work,” she added. “When people see my work based on my healing journey and how I see the world, people are excited and happy.” As for Barrio Glassworks, the shop opened on Dec. 5, 2020, and is one of the few glass studios in San Diego County. Owners Mary Devlin and Gary Raskin commissioned another artist, Suzanne Head, to paint a mural on the building’s frontage. Nao Yamamoto spins glass on a metal rod at Barrio Glassworks in Carlsbad. Photo by Steve Puterski Head, a friend of Ya-

Some use the artists for cheap labor, provide substandard living accommodations and other issues. But Devlin stepped up and Yamamoto said it’s the perfect situation for a resident. Devlin said it’s a balance between providing opportunities for both parties, which she has laid the groundwork with her program. She said each party can take advantage without being cutthroat. Regardless, Devlin said she is thrilled to have an artist of Yamamoto’s skill, talent and fame. “It is such an honor and fantastic, as new as we are, to have someone like this,” she added. “People are very excited, and so are we. It fits our mission to have diversity with our artists.”

family and the loved ones in need of care to find exactly the right fit. “When a family reaches out to me, my first goal is to first listen to understand what’s going on with the individual — their needs for healthcare, budget, location and even aesthetic,” Trahan said. “Then much like a real estate agent I reach out and find properties that fit those parameters.” Assisted Living Locators care advisors take a four-step approach to guiding you through the process of finding the best senior living option: 1. In-depth assessment of your needs 2. Thoughtful analysis and recommendations to provide a customized plan 3.

nities 4. Transition support to make the move smooth and worry free, while also following up to make sure expectations are being met at the community or home. Trahan also assists families or individuals who aren’t quite ready to move into senior living care but are thinking ahead about the future. Using a resource like Trahan at Assisted Living Locators takes away a lot of the stress and confusion that clients and families may otherwise experience while facing the many choices on their own. “My job is to provide solutions so that they can

feel safe, secure and have a piece of mind about where their loved one is,” Trahan said. Trahan has great relationships with many senior living communities, elderly attorneys, case managers and homecare providers across the region. As an Assisted Living Locators care advisor, he doesn’t need to fit any quotas or special incentives for any facility. His only concern is to ensure that his clients receive the very best care that is right for them. Trahan services the greater San Diego area. He also has clients who are bringing their families into the San Diego region from outside like two of his more recent clients coming from Boston and El Paso. “Steven will work tirelessly to help find the best fit for your loved ones,” said Laura R. in a business review. “He’s a creative problem solver who will confidently and adeptly navigate through any challenge with humor and positivity. He’s passionate about helping other people in the most respectful, compassionate and committed manner.” To learn more about Steven Trahan and Assisted Living Locators, visit https://assistedlivinglocators.com/care-advisor/encinitas-oceanside or call 760904-6017.

Encinitas sets organic waste rates

TURN TO ORGANICS ON B8

REGION — Grammy Award-winning musician Jason Mraz’s passion for coffee first bloomed during his early days playing music in San Diego coffee shops. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 43-yearold Oceanside artist in recent years has added a new outlet for his creative talents -- coffee agriculture — with hopes of putting California on the coffee-growing map. “I started my career working in coffee shops playing music in the corner of venues,” Mraz told The Coast News in a phone interview. “When I was 18 or 19 I would go hang out at a diner all night with my journal and write poetry and drink the crappiest coffee ever.” Mraz joins a host of other celebrities with an interest in coffee agriculture, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Hugh Jackman,

His newest release, however, is the highly sought-after Geisha coffee, a variety of coffee arabica beans that’s helped put the 17-acre Mraz Family Farms in Oceanside on the map. “Traditionally you can only get (coffee) by importing it from other countries, so there was an opportunity in California to try to break ground on a new industry of a very old product,” Mraz said. Mraz Family Farms’ Geisha coffee boasts a wholly different blend than your usual cup of joe, advertising “qualities of peach pie, dried apricot, and jasmine,” according to Frinj Coffee, its Santa Barbara-based distributor. Attached to such a sophisticated flavor profile is an equally eye-raising price. At $80 per 5-ounce bag, Mraz’s whole-bean Geisha stands high above the usual $10 spent on a

s I dazedly wandered the backroads of northeastern San Diego County, I was amazed at the traffic and the mountainous landscape. It appears I was mapspoofed. I had heard others tell of directional apps taking them round the mulberry bush, but now I am one of those feeling like an idiot. I was heading for a 5 p.m. wedding in Temecula Friday afternoon. I knew there might be traffic, so at least I left early. But then I trusted my map app and the nightmare began. Instead of taking me straight up CA-15 to a single turn-off, it sent me off at 76 east through endless winding mountain roads, in and out of business parks and neighborhoods before finally spitting me out where I needed to go. It took almost two hours. If it chose that route to avoid CA-15 traffic, it failed. There was steady traffic on every middle-ofnowhere-road it put me on. I spent a good deal of time pulling off the road (nearly got a flat) letting long strings of cars behind me go ahead at questionable speeds. They apparently drive this maze regularly. I was so disoriented by the time I arrived, I feared I might never get home, but being the trusting soul I am, I still didn’t question my app. I just wondered how on earth the couple had found this wedding venue. The truth came out

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council adopted new organic material collection rates this week, as requested by EDCO, following the construction of the waste disposal company's anaerobic digestion facility in Escondido. The new rates will constitute an increase of just over $6 per month for most residential customers with commercial rates being based on individual reviews with EDCO. EDCO’s anaerobic digestion facility opened earlier this year and will be taking in food waste from every city it services in San Diego, including Encinitas, in compliance with state mandates. The facility was constructed in response to Senate Bill 1383, passed and signed into law in 2016, which aims to completely eliminate organic waste in landfills, a significant contributor to methane gas in the atmosphere. Included in the rate increase is a temporary fee of $0.94 a month for one year that allows EDCO to provide all residents with a kitchen caddy to help them keep their organic food waste separated in the kitchen. The new rates become effective for residential customers beginning June 1, with new rates for commercial customers coming later

e had never heard the word “petroliana” until we stepped into the Mendenhall’s Museum of Gasoline Pumps & Petroliana. The museum is tucked away on a side street in tiny Buellton, about a minute east of the junction of highways 101 and 246. For others unenlightened, petroliana is memorabilia that centers on the gasoline industry — items such as gas pumps, oil cans and tins, porcelain signs and other items long-forgotten but now considered treasures from bygone eras. At Mendenhall’s, you’ll get a more-thanhefty dose of nostalgia and lessons in our cultural past when you step into this petroliana sanctum sanctorum. Among its treasures are 2,000 store and gas stations signs, 1,500 license plates, 400 gas pump globes, 100 gas pumps and 40 neon signs, all telling the story of America’s century-plus obsession with the automobile. All of this is owned and operated by Mark and Vickie Mendenhall, lifelong residents of the Santa Ynez Valley. “This was all started MARK MENDENHALL, owner and operator of Mendenhall’s Museum of Gasoline Pumps & Petroliana in Buellton, stands with the 1932 Ford roadster in which his father, Jack, broke a land-speed record at the by Mark’s father, Jack,” Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in 1991.

In 1991, he broke the landspeed record by clocking 207 miles per hour in a 1932 Ford roadster nicknamed Sally the Salt Dancer at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Son Mark came within less than 1 mph of breaking another record five years later in the same car. “The record by then was 210.7 miles per hour,” he said. “I did 210.1.” Jack owned a service station and automotive business in Buellton for years. He retired in 1978 and “went out on the road collecting,” Mark said. After Jack died on the Fourth of July, 2005, Mark took up the mantle. Since then, he has augmented the collection. “I’ve added a lot to the collection since he passed,” Mark said. “We have 10 vintage cars, old radios, music boxes, barber chairs, a beer can TURN TO HIT THE ROAD ON B9

Hansen bio chronicles a life well lived waterspot chris ahrens

oming into Encinitas on Coast Highway from the north you pass the Hansen Surfboards sign. There, frozen in time is a young surfer with a unique name, Cheer. In the off chance there is another surfer with the same first name, Critchlow is the last name. The image was recorded, as I understand it, in the late ’60s at Fletcher Cove by Tom Keck. While it’s a mighty fine photo, it does not represent the life of Hansen’s founder, Don Hansen. No photo could. And that was the biggest challenge in co-authoring Hansen’s biography: There was no singular peak to work up to and slide down from. That was also a problem for artist Wade Koniakowsky, who did the cover layout and needed four distinct images to begin telling the story. The images chosen are of Don and a friend skydiving while holding an Ocean Pacific Sunwear banner, Don skiing Powder, roping a steer and surfing tandem. Even that doesn’t tell the full story. It all began in 1955 with the 19-year-old Redfield, South Dakota, local sticking his thumb in the breeze and waiting to begin his 1,600-mile ride to the Southern California coast. Don left behind his life as high school football star, college student and mink trapper (how many mink trappers have you ever known?) and em-

barked upon his new life as a surfer. Five years later, married with two children and one on the way, he was in Hawaii, riding some of the North Shore’s biggest waves that thundered through at Waimea Bay. He was already a board builder by then and he rented the aforementioned Tom Keck’s garage

to shape his big-wave guns. A year later Hansen was back in California, building boards in Cardiff in a storefront now known as the Kraken. Once Hansen outgrew that facility in the late ’60s, it was off to his present location on 1105 Coast Highway 101. From there he launched a solid retail

business and, along with Jim Jenks and a few other friends, Ocean Pacific Sunwear. While his surfing skills were declining at the time due to an increasingly large family and business demands, he nonetheless managed to take top honors in tandem at the U.S. Championships in Huntington Beach, two consecutive years. But being an adrenaline-addicted Alpha male caused longings so deep that Don began skydiving, a sport he excelled in to the point of setting world records in an aerial competition called the “Ten Man Speed Star.” After several thousand jumps, Don became somewhat numb to the thrill of falling toward earth at 120 miles per hour and began looking for other outlets. One was ski racing, during which he shattered his previously broken leg while exceeding the freeway speed limit. Next it was team roping, charging out of a wooden chute on a horse and throwing a lasso around the neck of a steer. These are a few of the bullet points in a life well lived. And while Don smiled and said, “I can’t tell you everything,” his great adventures are chronicled in “Hansen: The Adventures of a Surfer, Skydiver, Team Roper, Entrepreneur.” The book is available through Hansen’s Surfboards or can be ordered through Hansen’s website at: hansensurf.com/produ c t s / h a n s e n - b o ok- h a n s e n - t h e - a d v e n tures-of-a-surfer-skydiver-team-roper- entrepreneur Stay tuned to this column for book signing dates.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 619-846-7649 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this internet website http:// www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-18-845731-RY. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 619-846-7649, or visit this internet website http:// www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA18-845731-RY to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was

SMALL TALK CONTINUED FROM B1

when I asked the app to take me home. Fortunately, the final destination was beautiful, in the horse country of Temecula, and the wedding was an absolute “hyacinth to feed my soul.” Being around my son, and all the adorable not-kidsanymore he grew up with, was the perfect post-pandemic medicine. It has been too long since I laughed like that and I was tempted to hang out ’til the wee hours just to continue absorbing as much of their youthful exuberance as possible. However, contrary to my normal instincts, I behaved with a smooch of de-

corum and headed out when the dancing started. I had hugged everyone at least three times and caught up on their lives. And I couldn’t just sit there and enjoy champagne, fearing those mountain roads I had come in on. When I asked the app for the route home, it sent me straight up one road, directly to CA-15, which took me straight to 78 and home. I was equal parts mortified and astounded. I took far too much joy in deleting that app this morning. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who is looking for her old Thomas Guide. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

Root vegetable harvest is good for pickling, preserving method, it fits into most of our busy schedules in a way that the traditional method does not. The following recipe can be adapted to all root vegetables including carrots, radishes or turnips. It also works well with broccoli and cauliflower, or a combination of two or three vegetables. As long as vegetables are processed with boiling water, and placed in the correct jars, this product will last for over two months in the refrigerator. Remember to only use glass Mason or Ball jars, not re-used jars that might have nicks or poorly fitting lids. This recipe fits nicely into a one-liter glass jar, be certain jar and lid are washed before use.

I

am developing a fondness for root vegetables. Typically when I plant them, they either don’t mature or mature poorly. Or in the case of carrots, they begin to develop but when picked they are either oddly shaped or exceedingly short! This year, my beets have taken off, so I researched how to pickle them. In an effort to streamline the process, I have come upon the “Refrigerator Pickle Method,” which is much different and less time-consuming than the traditional water-bath method. Most of these recipes can be found in the ‘Ball Jar Blue Book’ published in 1900 by the Ball Mason Company. “The iconic glass jar with lid is one of the most recognizable objects produced in the 19th Century. At that time, the potential of foodborne illness was a significant threat to the consumer,” according to the Ball Jar Bluer Book. This amazing cookbook, with over 350 food

preservation recipes is still available online today. When I grew up in the Midwest in the 1950s, my Dutch grandmother canned and preserved almost everything that she grew in the backyard of her tiny Milwaukee bungalow. The shelves of her pantry were lined with rows of Ball jars filled with pickled beets and vegetables, applesauce and apple butter. She became a widow at 55 years

old, and the food in her pantry carried her through the winter. As an adult, I look back and realize how useful and necessary the canning process was to her frugal existence. While working in the Senior Garden at the Pine Street Community Garden, many of my fellow gardeners have asked me, “What can I do with all these vegetables?”

AUTO INSURANCE FRAUD IS A FELONY INCLUDING BUYING INSURANCE TO COVER AN ACCIDENT AFTER IT HAPPENS DON'T CRASH, BUY, AND LIE!

In the moment with Mark Oberle, co-founder of Meadiocrity Mead

T

hings have continued to change in the world. Just this week, the CDC's mask announcement put a lot of breweries in a bit of a predicament having to explain to guests that masks are still required in California (until June 15th). And cities throughout the county are trying to decide how to manage the popular outdoor dining setups that were temporarily allowed during COVID-19, but may not be considered legal long-term. I, for one, hope they find a way to keep the patios. One of the first features I wrote about in the Cheers! column was on Meadiocrity Mead. I popped into the meadery and tasting room in San Marcos and then came back with the family to just share some of the more unique flavors they offered. We sat inside, other customers sitting next to us as we drank and laughed and

talked. February 2020 was a simpler time. I reached out to Mark Oberle, co-founder of Meadiocrity, to find out how they’ve been adjusting in the moment. Cheers!: Hey Mark, thanks for catching me up on what's going on at Meadiocrity. After 13-months of trying to run a business in a pandemic, what is the physical and emotional status of your company and team? Mark: COVID has done a number on everyone in the hospitality industry, and we certainly felt it. We opened our tasting room about six months before the pandemic started so we quickly went from excited to tactical; scrapping trying to keep things moving. During the period we were banking on typical normal growth for the business, we suddenly found ourselves locked down and needing to get creative to reach customers as we had no relief on bills or rent (actually, our rent was raised during the pandemic). Even though sales were impacted sub-stantially, we were (and still are) shocked to see the number of people coming week after week during the shutdown to try the oldest alcohol in the

world. That was a huge motivator for moving forward rather than throwing in the towel. Cheers!: You were able to add outdoor seating due to the changes in rules for hospitality busi-nesses during Covid-19. Will you be able to keep that moving forward? How did the on-site vibe change with so much being outdoors? Mark: We love having outdoor seating, although that has come with its own set of challenges. We had a tent for a while until the wind decided we shouldn’t have that any longer. Our final large windstorm last year folded the structure in on itself forcing

us to put together a more robust and welded structure that we now have. We will keep the outdoor space as long as the local and alcohol licensing exemptions remain in place, and our landlord continues to allow the parking spaces to be used for the Mead Garden. I personally love being outdoors. The vibe is a little more makeshift due to the transitory nature of the space compared to the indoors, but customers have really responded well. Cheers!: As we’re phasing out of the tier system, how do you anticipate business will change? Mark: While we do still sell a lot of growlers, we

are seeing a lot of people coming out and want-ing to enjoy mead on site. The fluctuations have been a staffing challenge, going from a week where almost no one comes into a week where it’s nonstop service for hours. Many of our customers now are new customers that discovered us during the pandemic, so they are anxious to try meads straight from the tap and enjoy the tasting room space. I think we've all been desperate for community connections, which is why we have started hosting maker’s markets. Our space is large enough that we can hold vendors and guests

this fall and on a rolling basis. It was important for the council that commercial customers be given more time before their new rates begin so they can prepare financially as well as get more time to figure out how they will now handle their food waste. “If they do a good job, and we’ll help them do that, they will be able to see a reduction in their trash service cost that can help offset the cost of the new organics program,” said Jim Ambroso, EDCO general manager. “It really is an educational requirement to do this, to look at their specific needs. Some can accommodate it better than others.” Public sentiment was mixed with some not able to grasp the benefit of the new process against the cost. “If you look at it, it looks innocuous. It’s only $5.78 for me. But it represents a 40% increase, kind of crazy in this day and age,” resident Michael George said. “I’m not sure of the benefit I’m going to derive or my community

with plenty of distance, so it's been a nice way to connect the community while not feeling like a transmission risk. It has also been a great way to put local vendors out in front of customers that they haven't seen in a long time. We will be carrying those forward even as the lockdowns lift. Cheers!: I find that Meadiocrity is always pushing the boundaries of what I might understand to be mead. What inspires a new flavor? The Green Tea Latte on nitro comes to mind. Mark: Mead has the luxury of having honey as a flavor backbone, and that flavor melds with es-sentially every other food out there. I got into the beverage industry because of a love for food, so my favorite food flavor combinations are typically inspiration for new mead flavors. I don’t think most people realize what a wide reach of styles and flavors mead can have. We often get customers that assume a mead must be sweet and syrupy or a bone dry high alcohol scorcher. They are pleasantly surprised to find mild-mannered but full-flavored fruity, spiced, or traditional meads that are easy-drinking, clean, and often times lightly carbonated. We started pushing into some unknown territory recently by making some beer-inspired meads where we are again able to leverage honey flavor to complement and underscore unique hop, fruit, and spice characters. If you drink alcohol, we can pretty much guarantee you will find a mead on our menu that you enjoy. Read the full interview at www.thecoastnews.com! friends are going to derive from this.” Jessica Toth, executive director of the Solana Center for Environmental Innovation, spoke in support of the city’s efforts to help residents keep food waste out of landfills as much as possible. “As Encinitas makes progress toward meeting its climate action goals, service to collect food waste right from our homes with curbside pickup is going to go a long way toward addressing that plan,” Toth said. “I’m a longtime Cardiff resident and I’m happy to pay the minimal new residential hauling rate to contribute our part in supporting our environment.” Encinitas is far from the first city in the state with a food waste collection program such as this one. But Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz still acknowledged the timing was poor coming during a pandemic that has been financially difficult for many people. “I recognize that this is something coming out of the pandemic that is challenging. But we have a legislative imperative and so I appreciate that we are at this point,” Kranz said.

Vittorio’s Restaurant, Stags’ Leap kick off ’21 wine dinners

D

uring the dark days of the pandemic, Victor Magalhaes, of Vittorio’s Restaurant in Carmel Valley, did whatever was necessary to keep his core customers happy. Generous price reduction events, pickup and delivery and nightly specials all helped while he waited for things to get better before planning his return to wine and food events. Victor is an easy-going relaxed guy with a ready smile for all, with an Italian menu that any Italian mama would love. She might start with prosciutto di parma con melone, then move to a low-caloried Italiana insalate, smile “buono amore” over the rigatoni bolognese, then graze through a margherita pizza, all the while sipping a Frescobaldi Super Tuscan wine. Those price reduction events are led by the cuisine and wine of Tuesday Date Nights at Vittorio’s. The combination of a choice of 4 entrées, each with its own sides, and a choice of five different bottles of wine are just $35.95 for two. This “date” is for everyone who loves great food

and wine at a budget price. A few weeks ago, Vittorio’s knew it was time to bring back his popular winery dinners and invited Stags’ Leap of Napa Valley to join Vittorio’s in the first dinner for 2021. The RSVPs came rushing in and Victor the owner had to almost immediately extend the event to the second night. The event turned out to be a sellout both nights and cheered Victor to plan another later this month. To celebrate, Vittorio’s ordered one of the highest quality wine glasses on the market, the Riedel series of wine glasses, one for each type of wine offered. Stags’ Leap was the perfect pick for a comeback dinner. The winery has a long history of wine quality since its beginning in 1893 when it was part post office and speak-easy. Jim Kern, the spokes-

Critics are raving about this heavyweight red with small amounts of merlot to add to its luster, bright with red fruit and complementary characteristics of graphite, clove and cedar. An elegant mid-palate of balanced fruit leads to a soft graceful finish. Wine Enthusiast gave it a 92 rating ($60). Read more at stagsleap.com and vittoriossandiego.com.

In all, there are about 10,000 artifacts. Mark knows this because he catalogued every item three years ago.

He and Vickie have carried the petroliana theme to their home on the museum grounds. Standing on their second-floor deck, visitors will find a huge, revolving, blue-and-orange Union 76 ball within arm’s length. When Vickie remodeled the kitchen, she continued the 1950s memorabilia theme with bright red cabinets that match a Texaco sign and other artifacts of the midcentury era.

Encinitas teen earns Eagle Scout rank By Grant Kessler

ENCINITAS — A La Costa Canyon teen earned the rank of Eagle Scout during an award ceremony last weekend at the YMCA Paul Ecke Sports Park in Encinitas. Garrett Warner, of Encinitas Boy Scout Troop 776, received the prestigious rank from his father, Jeff Warner, who is an Eagle Scout himself. “Becoming an Eagle Scout has been such an accomplishment and to help the community and Encinitas Little League, which I’ve been a part of my entire life, and just giving back has been tremendous,” said Garrett Warner. “It’s a great achievement and I’m just really happy and glad I could give back.” The ceremony was hosted near the park’s little league baseball fields where Garrett Warner has spent 10 years playing baseball as a left-handed pitcher and first baseman. In order to earn the

Eagle Scout distinction, scouts must earn 21 merit badges, serve as a Life Scout for a minimum of six months, show distin-

guishable leadership within their troop and demonstrate “Scout Spirit.” According to the Boy Scouts of America, “Scout

Spirit” is a simple concept: “honor your God by whatever name you choose, and your country, extend your helping hand to others, and steadfastly improve yourself in body, mind, and principles.” Additionally, the candidate must also develop a lead service project called the “Eagle Project.” Garrett Warner’s project consisted of several additions and improvements to the little league field, including building four new bench tables, four new batting cage benches and painting three score-keeping tables. Jeff Warner told The Coast News his joy and pride could not be greater for his son. “To see my son go through the challenges we have today with so much going on, stay in Scouts and then become an Eagle Scout himself is just a super proud moment for our whole family,” Jeff Warner said.

24-ounce bag from Starbucks. Yet, when the Mraz Family Farms’ debut of Geisha immediately sold out, Mraz knew he had something special growing right here in North County. After a year preparing for the Geisha coffee, he partnered with Frinj Coffee to help launch his passion project. In 2017, veteran farmer Jay Ruskey launched Frinj Coffee, an agricultural cooperative for continental America’s first coffee farms. Since then, Ruskey has partnered with about 50 California farmers, including Mraz. Ruskey, CEO of Frinj Coffee, first met Mraz six years ago at the avocado farm the artist had recently acquired. Ruskey told Mraz that avocado and coffee are companion crops that require nearly the same care above and below ground. Yet avocados don’t cover the cost of organic farming so Mraz added coffee crops, excited by the Geisha’s scarcity in the region and its sentimental value in his early career. Geisha is “such a unique tree, such a unique taste. It also has a story, it’s one of the most sought-after coffees in the world. So already there’s a bit of romance around this character,” Mraz said. “The fact that Geisha can be grown here and still reach the same sort of grading and scoring quality that it does in other countries and in other (coffee) contests … it was a pleasant surprise.” Ruskey said that Geisha coffee’s distinct floral and tea-like taste is shared by no other bean in the world. It’s comparable to a fine wine to be enjoyed among friends and family, say Mraz and Ruskey. When asked about its steep price point, both Mraz and Ruskey cited the difficulties in growing a crop that requires high altitude and precise timing and often produces just half the yield of some of its peers. Best grown in tropical regions like Ethiopia and Colombia, the bean is hand-picked from the ripest coffee cherries. The price tag is also influenced by the organic certification process and the fair and livable wages that Mraz is committed to providing his team. Mraz takes a different approach than the average celebrity with their name attached to a product. For the singer, farming has be-

come a counterweight to his day job, a calming juxtaposition to the frenzied life as a touring musician — both passions lend to each other. “I would come home from tour and I would put my hands in the earth and watch something grow. It kind of introduced me to the patience of a long project … you have to surrender to earth pace,” Mraz said. “It helped me do that in my creative art as well. … I’ve got a lot of musical ideas, album ideas, show ideas, but they don’t need to be done today. I

I would come home from tour and I would put my hands in the earth and watch something grow. It introduced me to the patience of a long project.” Jason Mraz Musician & coffee farmer

can just nurture those ideas and when the right season comes then that song or that album will be the right fit for that time.” Both Mraz and Ruskey hope their model for agriculture inspires existing farmers and newcomers to the field. The company now partners with a number of Southern California farmers looking to diversify their crops. The two farmers’ partnership is helping to solidify an industry still in its bloom. While sustainable coffee agriculture in the region was previously thought impossible, Mraz and Ruskey are inviting the world to indulge in their dream of California coffee. “We do want other farmers to take that chance because the more people that get on board, the more mills there will be and the more coffee there will be for Californians to enjoy,” Mraz said. “The price will eventually go down because it won’t be as rare. There will be more of it for all of us to enjoy and hopefully, young people will want to move into agriculture.”

Museum of Making Music celebrates grand reopening By Staff

copyright bob coletti 2021 A Digital Art piece has recently sold at a New York auction house for just over 69 million dollars, However, the highest bidder will not receive a sculpture, painting or even a print. What they will get is a unique digital token known as an NFT. Where crypto currencies like Dogecoin and Bitcoin have been named as the digital answer to currency . . . NFTs are now the digital answer to collectable artwork. What Is An NFT? NFT stands for non-fungible token. Economically speaking, a fungible asset is an item with units that can be readily transferred like money. Example: Two $10 for a $20. However, if something is nonfungible, it means it has unique properties so it cannot be interchanged with something else. For example, if you have a painting and photograph it, there will still only be the one original painting. NFTs are "one-of-a-kind" digital assets that can be bought and sold like any other piece of property, but have no tangible form of their own. More or less like certificates of ownership for virtual or physical assets. How Do NFT’s Work? Traditional artwork like paintings, sculptures, etc., are valuable because they are a one of a kind item. However, digital files can be duplicated many times by many sources. Labeling a Digital artwork as an NFT, make it “tokenized" and creates a digital one of a kind certificate of ownership that can be bought and sold. Crypto Art Crypto Art is the new title for this form of art. And this new name defines art in relation to the technology of the distributed record of source where it’s tracked and traded. It states that the artwork is unique and is established by a record on the blockchain. A blockchain is a digital record of transactions. The name comes from its structure, in which individual records, called blocks, are linked together in single list, called a chain. Blockchains are used for recording transactions made with NFT’s. To Make An NFT, a digital file, such as a JPEG, a GIF, or an MP4, must be minted, using a process that registers it on the blockchain, making the crypto art a hybrid thing. It’s record on the blockchain encodes its history of ownership. This serves as a contract that defines the conditions of its transfer. This blockchain token links to the file’s address on an off-chain storage site, such as the distributed server known as the InterPlanetary File System. Image can be viewed through a link to the owner’s crypto wallet, on a gallery wall in the virtual world.

The work continues to exist in its pretokenization form, as a file that can circulate in an unauthenticated way that any other file does. The NFT becomes a version that claims primary ownership while all others remain impossible to identify as original. The NFT Market has attracted a lot more buzz and investment than other uses of the blockchain to authenticate art. New online companies like Monegraph offer digital certificates of authenticity for NFT’s. Monegraph initiated the inventions of Ethereum, tokens, and the other technologies that make today’s NFT market possible. They specialize in certification and maintain a separation between the artwork and its on-chain representation. Selling reproducible digital works has been difficult in a market geared toward unique objects like paintings and sculptures. Digital Art used as NFT’s is geared primarily to establishing usage rights for digital works. Certification verifies ownership of creative works through the same system that cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin register transactions: unique alphanumeric strings of characters on a secure database that is both decentralized and a matter of public record. The registrant controls whether the buyer has resale rights and whether the work can be sold or used commercially no longer falls into a hazy legal zone. Digital Art Is The Platform of Today. I’m glad to know that the artists who create digital art now have the use of NFT’s as a source of monetary support for their work. I enjoy exploring internet sites that display digital art and all of its wild imagery by professional artists or self trained up and coming artists. Imagine the possibility of what might happen on these platforms, as the people who produce digital art mingle and trade ideas with artists coming from many diverse backgrounds. This all suggests that artists are building social bonds stronger than the just the blockchain where their art lives. And it creates a new source of income for struggling artists everywhere in the world.

CARLSBAD — After several years of planning and a recently completed remodel and transformation of its physical space, the Museum of Making Music will celebrate its grand reopening to the public on June 15. Upon reopening, the MoMM’s special exhibition area will feature a new display, “A Moment to Reflect.” The limited-time exhibition will center on the intrinsic experience of making music through instruments found throughout nature and in the world-at-large. The re-envisioned Carlsbad-based cultural institution will offer four new galleries and a multimedia-rich approach on the ecosystem of music products, their history, and cultural impact. “In the years since our opening, we've seen enormous changes in music, society, technology, and, by extension, in the many industries involved with musical instruments and products,” said Carolyn Grant, executive director of the MoMM. “This new musical landscape, coupled with our growing and shifting audiences, made it clear to us that the time had come to modernize the MoMM with new technologies and innovative storytelling. We’re excited to offer a new look at the people and products that bring music to our world.”    As the only museum of its kind in the world, the new MoMM welcomes visitors on a journey of musical exploration and discovery as told through instruments, artifacts, and multimedia displays featuring video stories, photographs, performance clips, and interviews from the instrument creators, artists, and industry innovators. Across the MoMM’s four new galleries, guests will experience key themes of “Making the Instru-

ments,” “Providing the Instruments,” “Using the Instruments,” and “Beyond the Instruments.” Grant said, “Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in each of the galleries through the depth of historical information, as well as make personal discoveries through their emotional and philosophical connections to music.” The first gallery, “Making the Instruments,” explores how instruments develop and change through time due to emerging technologies, economic and social trends, popular culture, and global migration. The second gallery, “Providing the Instruments,” reveals how instruments have entered and traveled through the marketplace and into our hands throughout a century of ever-shifting musical, economic, and social landscapes. In the third gallery, “Using the Instruments,” the magic of music takes flight. The gallery features a panoramic multimedia display exploring the theme of music as a journey. Included in the immersive experience are images from iconic rock and roll photographers. A conclusion area called “Beyond the Instruments,” examines instruments through a broader lens and invites visitors to consider instruments as more than their physical selves. In addition, it will invite visitors to reflect on the origins of what has today become a robust, global industry of music and sound products. The MoMM’s hands-on opportunities also underwent a redesign at “Sit & Play” stations throughout the galleries. In the Interactive Gallery, there will be a suite of instruments for solo exploration and collaborative performances. Available instruments  a banjo and a MOOG synthesizer.

With a focus on the youngest music makers, the Interactive Gallery also includes a dedicated area featuring hand drums, ukuleles and more to encourage hands-on instrument access. Alongside this, each of the three main galleries will also feature a dedicated STEAM Learning Station. In the future, docent-led student groups can explore the worlds of music and musical instruments through facilitated activities from the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. After June 15, the museum will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Under the direction of state and county health protocols, the MoMM will utilize COVID mitigation strategies and cleaning throughout the museum as well as a ticketed registration system to manage the flow and number of visitors to the new space. Admission to the MoMM is $15; $10 for seniors, students, and active military. Additional information is available at museumofmakingmusic.org / reopening.
