ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council removed Bruce Ehlers as chairman of the city’s Planning Commission on Wednesday night in front of a packed chamber of exasperated residents RANCHO strongly opposed to his dismissal. SFNEWS By a unanimous vote, the council voted to immediately terminate Ehlers from the volunteer position citing his public opposition to city housing policies. Ehlers’ term was scheduled to end in March 2023. Last week, Mayor Catherine Blakespear phoned Ehlers asking him to resign, but he refused and requested a public hearing. The vote to remove Ehlers came after Blakespear and Councilman Tony Kranz released an official report on April 8 recommending the chairman’s dismissal. Ehlers’ public statements on the issue of housing development, combined with his alleged association with Encinitas Residents for Responsible Development, a local grassroots organization currently suing the city over the controversial Goodson project, were

Encinitas takes first step toward citywide Quiet Zone By Stephen Wyer

ENCINITAS — Encinitas officials are considering adopting an ordinance that would make the city a Quiet Zone, significantly reducing the amount of train noise throughout the city, even as an increasing number of residents are expressing support for the proposal.

of a citywide Quiet Zone — no train horns — from approximately Leucadia Boulevard in the south to city’s northern border with Carlsbad. While no official ordinance was adopted at the meeting, the vote to allocate project funding in the council’s current drafted budget will be an important step towards making a citywide Quiet Zone a reality, according to Kranz. “I’ve been advocating for this since I’ve been elected,” Kranz told The Coast News. “It’s some-

Gunderson, Blakespear lead 38th District race in ‘perplexing’ poll By Stephen Wyer

ENCINITAS — A new poll funded and released by Catherine Blakespear's campaign for the 38th State Senate District appears to show the Encinitas mayor leading Democratic primary rival Joe Kerr but trailing Republican opponent Matt Gunderson in the race to replace outgoing State Sen. Pat Bates (R-Laguna Niguel). In the original poll, paid for by Blakespear’s campaign and conducted by California-based research firm FM3 & Associates, initial results show Gunderson leading the way with support from 36% of polled voters, Blakespear with 21%, Kerr at 11% and approximately 32% of voters reporting as undecided. In a revised version of the same poll, where participants were given biographies and additional information about each candidate — provided by Blakespear’s campaign — Gunderson’s lead over the Democrats narrowed slightly with 40% of participants supporting the Republican, 36% saying they would vote for Blakespear, and 14% supporting Kerr (12% of voters in the secondary poll were undecided). The survey was conducted via phone and online interviews with 400 random respondents selected as “likely primary voters,” according to FM3. The mayor's campaign issued a press release claiming that the poll is a clear win for Blakespear, foreshadowing a “trouncing” of her primary rival come June. “...Democrats overwhelmingly choose Blakespear over her Democratic challenger,” Blakespear’s press release states. “The poll confirms what many long suspected — that Blakespear and Gunderson will easily advance to the November runoff. Further, the poll shows that the combined Democratic vote outpaces the Republican vote, laying the groundwork for a Democratic win in November.” Gunderson’s campaign

CATHERINE BLAKESPEAR’S campaign for the 38th State Senate District seat released two versions of a poll conducted by FM3 & Associates last week showing the Encinitas mayor leading fellow Democrat Joe Kerr but trailing Republican candidate Matt Gunderson. The Coast News graphic

manager Stephen Puetz also issued a statement on the poll’s release, emphasizing the poll shows Gunderson possessing a commanding lead over both Blakespear and Kerr. “Releasing an internal survey that clearly shows Blakespear and the other candidate in the race are losing badly, combined, to Matt Gunderson is just the latest in a string of perplexing decisions and positions taken by Catherine Blakespear since Gunderson got into the race,” Puetz said. Kerr’s campaign also responded to the polls, arguing the revised poll was slanted in Blakespear's favor since her own campaign wrote the candidate descriptions that were given to surveyed voters. Kerr also took issue with the claims made in Blakespear’s press release, expressing that the mayor’s statement reflects how out of touch she is with the interests of District 38 residents. “Catherine Blakespear’s internal poll is completely biased,” Kerr said. “Contrary to her false claim that I am a ‘relatively unknown Democratic challenger who lacks a strong record of accomplishment,’ over the course of my career I have sponsored over

200 pieces of public safety legislation that were passed at both the state and national levels. Every poll shows that a Democrat will carry this seat; it’s just a matter of what kind of Democrat the voters in our district feel is the best fit.” Voters should view both of Blakespear’s polls with a measure of skepticism, as any candidate funding a poll has a clear motive to frame the survey in a way that portrays his or her own campaign in as strong a light as possible, according to John Thomas, owner of Thomas Partners Strategies, a California-based campaign strategy and consulting firm. “There’s a couple of reasons for [Blakespear] to release this poll. It’s primarily driven by the desire to help the candidate raise more money,” Thomas told The Coast News. “Campaigns are always trying to project strength while convincing people to give money, and then also cutting off opponent’s money, doing voter contact, and so hopefully having a spending and voter contact advantage come election time.” Thomas, a campaign strategist and registered Republican, explained the

revised or “informed” poll — which shows Blakespear holding a wider margin over Kerr and in a much closer race with Gunderson — appears to be less credible than the original “uninformed” poll, as the information about the respective candidates provided to voters in the informed poll was likely skewed in Blakespear’s favor. When taking the informed poll into account, Blakespear's campaign

noted in a press release the combined Democratic share of the vote (48%) was greater than the share of the vote garnered by Gunderson (40%). However, Blakespear’s campaign claimed “voters were read short, equally positive descriptions of each candidate,” but chose not to disclose the survey contents for either poll, raising questions about its language and balance. “Did they give all

three candidates an equal share in the biographies? We really have no idea what they said about Catherine or Joe, and anyone can write a ‘positive bio’ to influence the outcome. This was likely all for fundraising,” Thomas said. “My hunch is that they probably gave Catherine twice as much a voice. So I really do not buy this informed ballot poll, although the uninformed ballot poll appears to be much more credible.” From a strategic standpoint, Thomas questioned the decision by Blakespear’s campaign to publicize the survey’s results, as both polls appear to be clearly favorable for Gunderson. Additionally, Thomas noted that nationally, the midterm elections appear to be favoring GOP prospects and that District 38 itself, while recently redistricted, has typically leaned red in the past. “My hunch is that this race won’t be close at all,” Thomas said. “It’s a horrible year for Democrats and the winds are blowing in the Republican direction, including in this district. If the race is leaning slightly Republican now with [Blakespear’s] own data, the district will probably end up leaning really heavily Republican.”

Del Mar residents being railroaded by their mayor?

I

By Pam Slater-Price

t is long overdue for Mayor Dwight Worden to recuse himself from any decisions regarding fencing along the railroad tracks. His track record has shown publicly that he sides with the railroad and considers them “our friend.” At Feb. 28 Del Mar City Council meeting, Mayor Worden voted YES to accept fencing along Del Mar’s Upper Bluff Coastal Trail. Fortunately, he was in the minority and the motion failed. The next day the California Coastal Commission stepped up to protect Del Mar’s Coastal Bluffs. To review his history, in 1992, Mayor Worden was the attorney for the railroad track operator, North County Transit District (NCTD), when they acquired the tracks and took over maintaining them on behalf of the Atchison-Topeka-Santa-Fe Railway, now Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway, or BNSF. During 2020 to 2022, Mayor Worden has referred to NCTD as “our friend” in public meetings. They are NOT Del Mar’s friend. They have taken legal action against the California Coastal Commission

and the City of Del Mar through a petition to the federal Surface Transportation Board in Washington, D.C., to ask for the right to install fencing in their right-of-way anytime, anywhere, with no environmental review. Last week on April 8, Mayor Worden sent a letter to his “friend” Matt

Why on earth would Mayor Worden help NCTD streamline their city permits for fencing our bluffs? Tucker, executive director of NCTD, acknowledging “Matt’s” intention to fence the upper bluff above the track, and then Worden laid out an easy path through the City’s permitting process, as follows: “If NCTD proposes to stage on several City streets simultaneously, there is the ability to batch the request into one encroachment permit.” Why on earth would Mayor Worden help NCTD streamline their City permits for fencing our Bluffs? Especially when NCTD has

done no environmental review or meaningful geotechnical analysis. Two beautiful trails run along the Del Mar Coastal Bluffs — one west of the tracks above the ocean, and one high above the railroad tracks on the east. The upper trail, Del Mar’s Upper Bluff Coastal Trail, runs from 9th Street south past Del Mar Woods. This rugged but accessible beauty is a precious natural resource for the entire San Diego region. This natural trail is used by many and easily entered from the street ends in Del Mar, and there is no train track on the upper trail. Mayor Worden is the railroad’s friend, NOT the city’s friend. It is time for him to recuse himself from all matters related to railroad operations in Del Mar, especially fencing. Worden’s prior relationship with NCTD puts him in conflict with the City’s and residents’ interests, as shown brazenly in his most recent communications with his friend “Matt.” Pam Slater-Price is a former San Diego County Supervisor in District 3 (1992-2013) and a Del Mar resident since 1997.

Letters to the Editor

A carbon tax is long overdue As an English Teacher, I find it so immensely frustrating that the kids that I teach are going to bearing the brunt of this climate emergency and its long-term effects even more than I am. It’s so frustrating that we have the technology, but not the will, to make the change.

And I worry that by the time we decide to do anything, it will be too late. Personally, I believe that we need a carbon tax now. Fossil fuel companies are subsidized by the government, and we bear an external cost are nature and our livelihoods are obliter-

ated. A lot of the time, this isn't even brought up. But I think it’s an essential strategy for ensuring that the future belongs to our children and not just money. Matthew Maichen San Marcos

t’s well established that the state Public Utilities Commission has a major-league bias favoring the huge corporations it regulates over consumers they serve. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s leaning is also clear from his refusal to seriously penalize companies like Pacific Gas & Electric even after they’re convicted multiple times of manslaughter — killing their own customers. And the state Legislature is so obviously in the pocket of large developers and Wall Street housing investors that it insists upon cities helping them build housing for which there are no assured buyers —housing that’s often likely to sit vacant or become shortterm or corporate rentals. But until now, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the federal court that often gets to oversee California laws, appeared at least somewhat independent. Yet, its new ruling in a case involving mental health coverage by health insurance companies puts that supposition of integrity into serious doubt. This case ultimately stems from a 1999 state law called the Mental Health Parity Act, which requires that health insurers cover medically necessary treatment for most mental illness even when insurance policies written earlier explicitly exclude such coverage. This law is particularly critical now, while Newsom is pushing a plan to let authorities force the unhoused mentally ill into treatment even if it’s against their will. No one is quite sure how that might be paid for or carried out. Enter the Ninth Circuit, sowing extreme confusion on the issue. In a decision this spring, a panel there overturned lower court rulings that required a large insurer to reconsider its denials in tens of thousands of claims for mental health, drug and alcohol addiction care — just the kind of treatments Newsom calls for. The lower court decision, from federal Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero of San Francisco, said United Behavioral Health, manager of mental health services for the giant United Healthcare, acted to “protect its bottom line” via restrictive criteria it set up to deny claims here and in several other states between 2011 and 2017. He said the company’s policies did not provide sufficient coverage for treatments within generally accepted standards of care. But the Ninth Circuit’s baffling, confused decision said group plans don’t have to comply with all generally accepted care standards,

tom elias

but only must not conflict with them. Huh? The appeals court said United Behavioral Health’s policies met that standard and it followed them when denying coverage for both residential and outpatient treatment under plans written for self insured persons and fully insured employee groups. The appeals court ruling came despite unified support for the lower court decision from the American Medical Assoication, the American Psychiatric Association and other medical groups. They entered the case because, they said, it could set a precedent for “all insurance companies that are providing employer-sponsored health benefits.” But no matter, the Ninth Circuit said in appearing to reverse its own 2011 decision in a case where Blue Shield of California tried to withhold mental health coverage. The court back then said Blue Shield was required under the state law to provide medically necessary health insurance for mental illness on a par with treatment for physical problems. It cited findings by the state Legislature that mental health coverage limitations “result in inadequate treatment” and cause “relapse and untold suffering” for persons with treatable mental illness. The Ninth Circuit has now thrown out this previous work, giving insurance companies an apparent license to return to the bad old days when they refused to provide almost any mental health coverage. The court’s reasoning here leaves a lot of open questions about what kinds of mental health care the companies must provide in California. Clearly, these will not be as broad in the future as they have been for most of the last 20 years. The fact this comes at a time when Newsom’s planned remedy for homelessness includes a strong mental health treatment component lends a great irony to the picture, and involves especially bad timing. But it should hardly shock anyone, considering how long and how thoroughly the political and legal apparatus in this state has favored corporations over their customers.

Norby identifies city’s affordable housing ‘warning’ signs By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A recently approved resident committee is tasked with looking at the future of housing placement in Carlsbad and how to align the city's goals with state laws and country transportation plans. But Councilman Peder Norby is using his decades of experience with local and county governments to ensure Carlsbad stays on a correct path, especially as the Growth Management Citizens Committee ramps up to address housing, climate concerns, transportation, jobs and parks and open space, to name a few issues. Norby cautioned the council during its Feb. 15 meeting regarding the Housing Element to avoid going down paths already taken by other cities, which have resulted in less than desirable outcomes. Regarding the city's Housing Element, Norby pushed back against efforts to pack the northwest quadrant with the largest affordable housing allotment to meet the city’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment, or RHNA, requirements. The distribution of affordable housing units in the northwest quadrant totals 1,667, while the northeast has 668, the southwest 544 and the southeast 248. The city identified 18 properties to rezone or upzone, although three were

removed from the map so staff could conduct further studies. “My great hope is that we can create construct a framework around growth, which was a nasty bear,” Norby said. “This is a nasty bear as well. A key tenet to that framework is this is an obligation put on the City of Carlsbad by the state and all citizens of Carlsbad have to share that obligation.” Norby said the current RHNA cycle, along with Senate bills 9 and 10, SB 330, SB 166 and Assembly Bill 686, provide new challenges for the committee and the City Council. Carlsbad must construct 2,578 units for this RHNA cycle. The councilman’s cautionary tale stems from his time working with the City of Encinitas and how dedicated land and pushing housing to areas where “it

My great hope is that we can create construct a framework around growth, which was a nasty bear.” won’t bother anyone” has backfired. Norby said Encinitas has removed about 25% of its in-perpetuity agricultural land for housing. According to Norby, Carlsbad isn’t as close to where Encinitas is in terms of available land, but he said in eight to 16 years, the city will be in the same position. Norby said the argument to “put it there” because it does impact some, plus losing agricultural land is “exactly” what is happening now in Carlsbad. “You can either adopt this mentality of this nasty bear we have to deal with equitably as a city, or where we’re going to have a situation where it ‘doesn’t bother’ anybody,” Norby said. “The radar goes up because I’ve seen this conversation and know where it ends up.” The Growth Management Plan, created in

Loan to aid O’side with recycled water By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside City Council accepted a $17.5 million loan and a $5 million grant which will be used to fund part of the Water Utilities Department’s capital improvement projects. The Water Utilities Department has been pursuing grants and other capital financing plans to reduce its financial burden on the department and its customers. The State Water Resources Control Board provides such grants and low interest loans through its Clean Water State Revolving Financial Assistance program, which the city applied for in late 2019. The city received a $17.5 million loan from the board with a low interest rate of 0.8% to be paid over 20-30 years and an additional $5 million split into two grants from bonds approved by voters in 2000 and 2014. These funds will go toward the Lower Recycled Water Reservoir and Pump Station Project, which includes a 2.2 million-gallon recycled water reservoir and a 1,150 gallons-per-minute pump station in the Fire Mountain area, and the Upper Recycled Water Project, which includes 24,500 linear feet of recycled water pipeline delivering water from the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility to northern communities like Arrowood and golf courses. Together, the two projects

are estimated to cost about $38.6 million. The projects would help lower costs by using recycled water instead of potable water for landscaping purposes. Water Utilities Director Cari Dale said recycled water rates are about 50% of the potable water rate. Councilmember Christopher Rodriguez was the sole council vote against the loan plan, citing his concerns with approving a loan before solidifying a plan to prioritize infrastructure and bring recycled water to the city’s agricultural land in South Morro Hills. “From my perspective, with over 3,000 acres of farmland these resources seem to be best invested toward agriculture,” Rodriguez said. Dale noted a pipeline needs to be constructed along North River Road to get to the South Morro Hills area. The city has been looking at purchasing land for a reservoir out there, but the project has been put on hold until the department receives more clarification from the city’s upcoming General Plan amendment, which is supposed to include updates in plans for South Morro Hills. “We need to have that before we move forward,” Dale said. Dale warned that if the city would hold off on the board’s state water board’s

loan, the currently low interest rate of 0.8% would likely rise. “This is the lowest rate offered in a 12-year period,” Dale said. Mayor Esther Sanchez pointed out that the city has been working on these projects for the last 12 years after farmers complained to the city about high water costs. “Agritourism and recycled water were two things we committed to moving forward with at their request,” Sanchez said. According to Dale, not yet having contracts in place to bring recycled water to South Morro Hills farmers should not be an issue when moving forward with designing and constructing such infrastructure. Water Utilities overall capital improvement projects are expected to cost a total of about $272 million.

1986, originally planned for 200,000 residents, although growth was slowed at the behest of residents concerned 200,000 was too many. The framework was everyone had to share in housing allocations with the city divided into four quadrants and 16 sub-quadrants, Norby added. “The residents trusted that document and developers knew where the bar was,” he said. “And it worked. We haven’t had 50 unique fights. It’s a document that has allowed us to avoid dozens, and dozens, and dozens of fights.” Growth management has room for about 20,000 more residents, although the state does not allow population caps anymore, according to state law. Norby said there are approximately 45,000 dwellings and with the number for this RHNA cycle, and several thousand likely in the next cycle, can dramatically alter a community. Norby also said the state has slowly taken away the rights of residents and how they want their city to be developed. As for Carlsbad’s commitment to 40% of land as parks or open space, Norby said the warning signs, as has happened in Encinitas, are there for a reduction of those already developed and dedicated spaces. “That’s not the way the Carlsbad should do planning for the future,” Norby

said. “We should follow the success and model of the Growth Management Plan. The committee is going to have a lot to do.” Councilwoman Teresa Acosta supported putting more density at The Shoppes at Carlsbad site based on “community feedback.” The two sites at The Shoppes have a potential for 1,233 units, although Acosta said there is a transit station to help with transportation. Additionally, the North County Transit District recently announced it is accepting proposals for mixed-use developments at Carlsbad Village and Poinsettia stations, which were identified in the Housing Element. “I don’t think we should be discarding what the community is saying,” Acosta said during the meeting. “There’s a ton of community feedback that says ‘yes’ please increase the density at The Shoppes, a place that’s not going to affect the rest of us. There is a transit hub right there.” Kristina Ray, director of communication and engagement for the city, said the GMP is layered approach consisting of nearly every aspect of the city from jobs, transit, recreation and housing. She said the resident committee will meet for about one year to come up with recommendations for the council on how the city can manage growth moving forward.

Ray said the committee is not talking about large master planned communities. However, the growth moving forward will be dictated largely by state laws, she said. Ray said it’s where Housing Element comes enters as much of the new housing must be multi-family. She said one way to address concerns about multi-family housing is using objective design standards, which a committee was formed for the Village and Barrio to install those standards. She said it is more difficult to approve multi-family housing without objective design standards due to state laws. Outside the Village and Barrio there are no objective design standards, Ray added. “We are not changing building heights, just how they are designed,” Ray said. “How they are designed could address some of the community concerns.” However, with the San Diego Association of Governments $172 billion transit plan, which plan to mostly invest in transit, more density is required to reach the goal of increasing ridership by at least 7%. “Why invest in that if we don’t want increase density?” Mayor Matt Hall asked at the meeting. “If transit is to work, you’re looking at 40 to 50 units per acre.”

Judge permits Fairgrounds to resume ticket sales Escondido  Court upholds midway contract injunction ruling By Laura Place

DEL MAR — A judge on Monday denied the 22nd District Agricultural Association’s request to stay a recent injunction preventing them from carrying out its midway carnival contract for the upcoming San Diego County Fair, but granted permission for carnival ticket sales to resume. The latest decisions are part of an ongoing lawsuit against the 22nd DAA filed by Texas-based carnival operator Talley Amusements, alleging corruption, favoritism and bid-rigging during the Del Mar Fairgrounds’ selection process of a master carnival operator for the 2021 county fair, which was ultimately canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. San Diego County Superior Court Judge Kenneth J. Medel first ruled on April 5 that the 22nd DAA could not carry out their 2022 carnival contract granted to Ray Cammack Shows in January, stating that there was enough evidence to suggest the contract process was rigged in violation of state public contract code. In their request for Medel to stay the injunction, representatives for the

22nd DAA stated in a Monday filing that the 2022 fair would likely have to be canceled for the third year in a row unless they were permitted to carry out their contract. “The 2022 San Diego County Fair is set to open in less than two months, on June 8, 2022, and ticket sales had already begun,” the request stated. Leaders from the 22nd DAA also said they disagree with the allegations that formed the basis of the ruling — namely the assertion that the mini-

mum qualifications in the request for proposals for a 2022 master carnival operator were changed from previous years so that it could only be met by RCS. Despite claims that the fair would have to be canceled if the injunction was not stayed, the 22nd DAA appears to be moving forward with fair plans, including finding a new contract option for the midway. “We are continuing discussions with the involved parties about a modified contract and we remain hopeful that we can

reach a meaningful and appropriate resolution very soon. “However, we cannot simply hand over the contract to the plaintiffs or anyone else in this case — we must follow a process that ensures that whatever solution we come up with is fair and equitable and complies with the law,” 22nd DAA spokeswoman Jennifer Hellman said in a Tuesday statement. Funpass tickets allowing access to rides and games at the planned carnival had been on sale

since April 2 alongside admission, parking and grandstand tickets, but were then halted by 22nd DAA after the injunction ruling. On Tuesday, Medel reached an agreement with Talley Amusements and the 22nd DAA to allow ticket sales to continue. “Just today, the court agreed that the fair could restart ticket sales for the carnival midway, which of course is very positive,” 22nd DAA Board President Joyce Rowland said during a Tuesday meeting. John Moot, an attorney representing Talley Amusement in the lawsuit, said the company wants to see the fair continue like everyone else. “Talley wants there to be a successful fair, so they agreed to it,” Moot said. During their Tuesday meeting, the 22nd DAA board unanimously approved grandstand entertainment contracts for performances by Nate Bergatze and Leanne Morgan, For King and Country, Sam Hunt and John Fogerty. The fair is also seeking one more potential grandstand performer, according to Fair Operations Committee Chair Frederick Schenk. According to Katie Mueller, chief operating officer at the Fairgrounds, the fair has already sold over 15,000 tickets for grandstand concert performances and over 1,700 admission tickets.

County assumes control of San Dieguito’s electoral map  No official response from SDUHSD board By Anna Opalsky

ENCINITAS — The San Diego County Board of Education on April 6 held its first public hearing since taking the unprecedented step of assuming control over San Dieguito Union High School District’s redistricting process earlier this month. The county's involvement comes several weeks after the district adopted its new electoral map, known as Map 8, which promptly spurred claims of Brown Act violations and a

lawsuit alleging violations of both the California Voting Rights Act and state Education Code. This is the first time the county has taken over a school redistricting process, according to Jennifer Rodriguez, the county’s media strategist. “Usually, maps are submitted and checked off,” Rodriguez said. “This has been an atypical case.” County education board members took over the process on April 4 acting as the San Diego County Committee on School District Organization, voting to “adopt a timely and qualified map for the governing board of the San Dieguito Union High School District” by April 30. “The County Committee became involved because, under Education Code section 5019, it has

the authority to develop a timely and qualified map that is consistent with the intent and purpose of the California Voting Rights Act,” Rodriguez wrote in an email. “The Committee

Usually, maps are submitted and checked off. This has been an atypical case.” Jennifer Rodriguez County media strategist

is committed to supporting the district in establishing maps that promote political representation of diverse communities, as the CVRA requires.” A majority of the 23 speakers at the hearing supported the county’s involvement in the process and asked for similar map adjustment considerations, such as keeping feeder districts intact and maintaining election cycles, which Map 8 does not do, according to a lawsuit filed by San Diego attorney Corey Briggs. “When considering which map or maps to focus on, please use a light touch,” a resident said. “Preserve the five elementary school feeder district communities

Other speakers also called for better protection of minority voters in the district. The lawsuit claims the district’s map “cracks” and “packs” (terms used in cases of gerrymandering) minority voters in the district to give the conservative majority on the board more power. Specifically, Map 8 divides, or “cracks,” the Hispanic community within the previous map’s Trustee Area 1 and Trustee Area 3 and instead “packs” them into the new Trustee Area 2. Similarly, the complaint states the map divides the Asian population of the previous Trustee Area 4, instead of packing

more White voters into the area, “thereby diluting the influence of the Asian population in future trustee area 4 elections, as previously reported by The Coast News. The suit also alleges that changes to the numbering of Trustee Area 1 and Trustee Area 2 disenfranchise a significant portion of the school district’s population by not allowing them to vote in board elections until 2024. “We need to recognize that the (California Voting Rights Act) has greatly expanded the protection of minority voting rights,” another speaker said, addressing the board. “I urge you to pick a map that affords our Hispanic and Asian communities voting rights protections.” Another resident at the hearing did not support the county’s involvement, arguing the county’s involvement was not justified since the board adopted and submitted the final map by the March 1 deadline. According to Rodriguez, the district could oppose the county’s final decision on the map, but as of April 6, the school board had not publicly discussed its plan to move forward with the map, according to Board President Maureen “Mo” Muir. The County Committee on School District Organization will hold another public hearing on April 20.

reviews city climate plan By Samantha Nelson

ESCONDIDO — The city reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by six metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, including methane and other gasses, between 2020 and 2021, according to the first annual Climate Action Plan monitoring report. The city first approved its Climate Action Plan (CAP) in 2013 and updated it just last year with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions citywide. Staff must report the plan’s progress to the City Council once every year. The CAP aims to reduce emissions to 42% below 2012 levels by 2030 and to 52% by 2035. The plan identifies 11 strategies to reduce emissions. Each strategy contains various measures to help support the overall strategy, and each measure contains performance metrics that show how the measure will be reached. For example, the first strategy is for the city to increase its use of zero-emission or alternative fuel vehicles. Within that strategy are four measures, one of which is to install electric vehicle charging stations at parks and ride lots. Under that measure there are two performance metrics that the measure would need to be considered completed: installing 181 charging stations in park-and-ride lots by 2030 and 281 by 2035. There are a total of 153 performance metrics overall that need to be completed to reach the CAP’s goals. About 25% of those metrics have been implemented, according to Senior Planner Veronica Morones, who delivered the CAP monitoring report during the April 6 council meeting. The goal for 2022 is to implement nine performance metrics while also absorbing uncompleted metrics from last year’s goals. “There are 17 items to work on in 2022,” Morones said. Under the CAP’s increasing building energy efficiency strategy, one of the measures completed is reducing electricity use in streetlights. The city retrofitted more than 1,000 streetlights with LED lighting between 2020 and 2021. Two ongoing performance metrics include planting and maintaining 2,802 trees at new developments by 2030 and 4,076 trees by 2035. “Trees are really our best partners in combating the climate crisis,” said Anna Marie Velasco, a resident who also served on the community advisoTURN TO CLIMATE ON A17

Del Mar nears deadline to approve Watermark project  50-unit complex city’s first by-right housing project By Laura Place

DEL MAR — After nearly 10 years of backand-forth with Del Mar officials and strong local resistance to increased density, the residential Watermark project slated for the corner of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Drive is bypassing the local discretionary process and moving forward under a by-right application. The proposed project, managed by San Dieguito Land Partners and Kitchell Corp. in a partnership called Watermark DM LP, has gone through several iterations since 2013, with the current proposal featuring a four-story, 50-unit design spanning 2.3 acres of the main level of the lot. City officials now have until April 19 to grant final approval for Watermark’s administrative coastal development permit, which will then be sent to the California Coastal Commission for an appeal period. In the meantime, absent from the usual public hearing process, officials are sharing information with the public via an online information page. The by-right process enabled by Senate Bill 330 allows qualifying housing projects to move forward by eliminating the typical local discretionary processes, and instead requires jurisdictions to determine a project’s eligibility based on objective criteria related to zoning and other factors. “Since it’s a by-right project, it’s been difficult. It’s not our standard discretionary process; the public cannot come and weigh in,” City Manager Ashley Jones told the City Council at their April 4 meeting. “We have requested, and we’re hopeful [Watermark] will agree to, host a public meeting where the public can listen in, but we don't have confirmation about whether they’re willing to do that.” Watermark DM LP did not respond to requests for comment about the development or a potential public meeting in time for publication. The development is set to be the largest yet in San Diego County’s smallest city of around 4,200 people, which has historically struggled to meet state-mandated affordable housing requirements.

Not a typical process Between 2014 and 2020, Watermark DM LP worked with the city to develop a specific plan application for the 2.3-acre site in the north commercial zone to pave the way for their development. Among the hoops to jump through was approv-

al from the city’s Design Review Board, as well as coastal and floodplain development, conditional use and land conservation permits. Watermark DM LP first advised the city in an October 2020 letter that it would withdraw its Watermark Specific Plan application and instead pursue the by-right process, stating that they had little faith in the city’s ability to move their project forward in a timely manner. This came a month after the state determined the city to be out of compliance with state California Housing Element law, noting that the city had long passed deadlines to rezone area 2G, where the development site is located, to allow by-right residential development at 20 to 25 units per acre, along with other missed requirements. “To date, we have not felt the city has appropriately facilitated compliance with the Housing Element requirements and instead has simply hoped that we would carry the ball forward entirely on our own,” Watermark DM LP said in the 2020 letter. The council eventually voted to rezone the area in the following months in order to avoid penalties by the state, and Watermark submitted a formal administrative coastal development permit application for the project in April 2021. Over the following months, the application would be sent back and forth with the city several times as developers addressed deficiencies identified by the city that rendered their application incomplete. After determining the application to be complete on Feb. 18, the Planning and Community Development Department initiated a review of all application materials, to be followed by final approval of the permit by April 19. “It’s in a pretty straightforward timeline at this point,” said Del Mar principal planner Matt Bator. “It’s not a typ-

ical process for Del Mar … this is our first by-right project and first housing project.” If approved, the city must notify all residents living within 100 feet of

able units the following year. Subsequent community feedback resulted in the creation of a 38-unit option featuring six affordable units. The current 50-unit

The development is set to be the largest yet in San Diego County’s smallest city, which has historically struggled to meet state-mandated affordable housing requirements. the project site — used for decades as a parking area for nearby fair and racetrack events — and those owning property within 300 feet. The decision is then subject to a 10-day appeal period with the Coastal Commission due to the project’s proximity to the San Dieguito Lagoon. If an appeal of the project is submitted, the commission will schedule a hearing to decide whether the development poses a “substantial issue” in relation to the city’s Local Coastal Program (LCP) and the Coastal Act. Del Mar resident and former county supervisor Pam Slater-Price said she expects there to be an appeal due to widespread opposition to the project, although any appeals must be related to potential violations of the LCP to be accepted. “I know that people are going to be submitting letters, I know people are going to be testifying. I hope the Coastal Commission does their job and remembers their commitment,” Slater-Price said.

Changing versions The current iteration of the project presents key differences from what was proposed in the past, with the developer requesting various concessions to local zoning requirements. Developers originally proposed a 54-unit project when it was introduced in 2013, which was downsized to a 48-unit design including seven afford-

proposal includes 10 lower-income units, with a variation of studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 580 to 2,541 square feet. The four stories would include three residential stories atop a podium parking garage holding 105 parking spots. Past proposals included development on the nearby hillside, which also would have required the relocation of several Torrey pine trees. According to Bator, the new iteration of the project avoids this entire area but adds another story to the building. However, Watermark DM LP also requested concessions under state bonus density law that would

limit the wetland buffer from 100 feet to 50 feet and allow for up to 10% encroachment into steep slopes. “There’s less coverage and it’s taller,” Bator said of the project layout. “Because of the wetland buffer of 50 feet that’s required, there’s really nowhere to go.” Other requested concessions include increasing the maximum height from the local limit of 14 feet to around 47 feet, a change that is likely to interfere with scenic views of the adjacent bluffs. “There are a lot of exceptions being made here,” Slater-Price said. “That’s very disappointing that the city has very little control. They are between a rock and a hard place at this point, and they are being forced to approve this.”

Affordable housing Despite resistance to the project, the need for affordable housing in the city has been made apparent. The city’s updated 6th Housing Element Cycle adopted at the end of 2021 outlines 175 units that must be built by 2029 to meet Regional Housing Need Assessment requirements. According to the housing element, 22 of these units must be produced in the north commercial zone, where the Watermark project will be located. The 10 “affordable” housing units in this project will help make a dent in that requirement, with two set aside for individuals considered extremely low income (making 30% or less of the area median income), two for very low income (less than 50% AMI) and six for low-income (less than 80% AMI).

By Jacqueline Covey

VISTA — Now through the end of June, subcontractors and engineers will walk the schools in the Vista Unified School District to identify problem areas and upgrades needed at each site. At its April 7 meeting, the VUSD Board of Education considered six concept developments that would replace the 21 modular classrooms at Bobier Elementary School, a project budgeted in the first phases of the Measure LL Facility Bond. The board also approved an amendment to its services contract with Ruhnau Clarke to include a full site topographic and boundary survey at Bobier for $22,990 and a line item for reimbursable expenses up to $5,000. The increase brings the contract from $1,216,000 to $1,243,990, which is funded through the bond program. The weekly walkthroughs — which started with Beaumont Elementary School, Monte Vista Elementary School and Foothill Oak Elementary School — offer industry professionals the opportunity to take a deep dive into the sites. At its meeting last week, the board approved an amendment to its services contract with Ruhnau Clarke to include a full site topographic and boundary survey for Bobier Elementary School for $22,990 and a line item for reimbursable expenses up to $5,000. The increase brings the contract from $1,216,000 to $1,243,990, which is funded through the bond program. In an effort to avoid previous mistakes and to remain fiscally transparent, Superintendent Matt Doyle invited the board — and the public — into

the finer details of project bidding for Long Range Facility Master Plan. It is a roadmap “to make sure that we design and understand exactly what we have and that we’re very careful as we move forward on things,” said Grace Chan, a bond program manager. Ruhnau Clarke Architects, a Riverside-based firm, is helping the district in carrying out that plan at every district school. “As well as the support sites,” said Chan. “All the pieces of property and facilities that the district owns, [the board needs] to make sure you do a thorough, thorough investigation and planning for that.” Bobier Elementary will serve as the model for future site assessments and planning within VUSD – and what Steve Prince with Ruhnau Clarke Architects found at Bobier shows facilities improvements are never surface level. Prince and a team of engineers found a host of necessary modifications during a facility condition assessment. One of the more notable problems, though, is the sticky floors in Bobier classrooms. Climbing up the west hillside, Prince found visual evidence of sliding as he felt himself, “sinking” into the ground. At the top of the hill, he found the culprit to the gummed surface: A residential, concrete V drainage channel was cracked in several places. “So what is happening is all the water coming from the residential site is coming down the hillside,” he said. “Water was coming through the hill and hitting the classroom buildings and causing the floor to stick… because the water is vaporizing up through the building.” The teams also found other issues, which ranged in severity. The more consequential being the intense grade change on site, with others being an HVAC system with a few years of life left.

Other enhancements are in reference to ADA requirements and infrastructure updates. While speaking with teachers at the school, Prince said that one educator became emotional at the disjointed playfield and hard courts and traffic safety issues during pickup and dropoff. Supervision of children in these areas is difficult, teachers told Prince, and widening visibility is a top priority. After his on-theground research, Prince came back to the district with the six possible plans for the site. Each has plans for new construction, heavy modernization and light modernization – with varying price tags. The most costly project was roughly $74.6 million and included a full-campus replacement. While the lowest concept plan cost was $43.7 million. This option included new builds, but budgeted for slightly more rehabilitation projects over new construction than in others. Chan told the board that the district recommends the sixth plan, which has a projected cost of $57 million. It includes a new building for classrooms and administration, a new multipurpose room or heavy modifca Many of the concept plans saved facilities onsite, though each included the construction of permanent classrooms that reach the required square footage required by the state. There are some issues at the site that need to be rectified to fall into compliance with state or federal law, however the board has some discretion on how it wants to modernize the buildings to keep up with its code. “I am not a real advocate of tearing things down just for the sale of tearing things down…if there are good bones then I want to try to save them if we can,” Prince said, adding that Bobier had some of those “good bones.”

ESCONDIDO — To “fill” an electric vehicle in California costs nearly half the price of a gas-powered car — and Escondido is paving the way for more residents to make the switch. On April 23, the Greater Escondido Chamber of Commerce is hosting its inaugural Escondido Transportation Exposition at the Westfield North County Mall, 272 E. Via Rancho Parkway. Dubbed the Green Transpo Expo, residents from around the county are invited to learn about green energy. There will be learning material and speakers on electric cars, bikes and school buses, alternative fuels, and home solar and battery storage. It’s a first-of-its-kind event that local leaders are hoping could lead to the next great convention in San Diego County. Visitors can kick off the event with a cars and coffee meetup from 9 to 11 a.m. with demonstrations and an educational forum planned until 4 p.m. Presentations include those from SDG&E, the Electric Vehicle Association of San Diego, Alive Solar. Rad Power Bikes will be giving away an e-bike at the end of the event. The Green Transpo Expo comes alongside a recent state proposal that would increase the sale of electric (or zero emission) cars by 35% in the next four years, eventually prohibiting the sale of new traditionally powered cars by 2035. The measure, Advanced Clean Cars II (ACC), goes before the California Air Resources Board this summer. According to the Air Resources Board, vehicles are the greatest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants in the state. They account for 80% of ozone precursor emissions and about 50% of statewide greenhouse gas emissions. The latest proposal under the ACC is essential to achieving the state’s goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2045, CARB reported. It supports Gov. Gavin Newsom’s 2020 executive order that eyes zero-emission-only sales for all new passenger vehicles sold in California by 2035. There are already programs in place that make it easier for drivers to make the change. According to the County of San Diego’s Electric Vehicle Consumer Guide, the cost of a new electric vehicle will be comparable to a gas or diesel engine by 2025.

American Legion Baseball again proving to be a hit sports talk jay paris

efore Padres great Tony Gwynn was a Baseball Hall of Famer, he played American Legion Baseball. Before Randy Jones became a Padres Hall of Famer, he was an American Legion player. “Randy still talks about those American Legion days as some of the best times he had in baseball,” said Carlsbad’s Peter-Rolf Ohnstad, Jones’ weekly golf partner. “Even all these years later.” Fast-forward to the present and American Legion ball, a youth baseball program for ages 13-19, is finding a new pulse in the area. That includes North County, where teams are being established as well as being formed. “The reason why we are seeing a resurgence, and why we brought it back, is because parents had an appreciation for the opportunity for their kids to play out there without paying $3,000 for travel ball,” Ohn-

stad said. The emergence of travel ball, where players pay to play and coaches are paid to coach, helped deliver a haymaker to American Legion. Ohnstad, who is the American Legion Baseball commissioner for San Diego and four surrounding counties, doesn’t count himself as a fan of travel ball. He believes it turned into a cash cow for coaches trying to balance teaching youngsters baseball while being compensated for their services. “With travel ball, the coaches make money and I don’t think it is the best program out there for where some of the kids are today,” Ohnstad said. Some of those kids are long on dreams but short on cash. The American Legion Baseball model gives them, and everyone else, a chance to play minus reaching for an ATM card. “I think it is coming back strong because of the venues we are playing at and that we do not require players to pay to play, which I think is kind of crazy,'' Ohnstad said. “What we found out is so many kids don’t have the money for travel ball.” American Legion Baseball has cache as more than

project is expected to cost the city $750,000. A Quiet Zone, according to the Federal Railroad Administration, or FRA, is defined as “a segment of a rail line within one or a number of consecutive public highway-rail (roadway) grade crossings at which locomotive horns are not routinely sounded.” Encinitas is currently in a non-Quiet Zone where train engineers are required to blow their horns four times, starting at least 15 seconds in advance of all public grade crossings. A Quiet Zone simply removes this requirement, which means that engineers only have to sound the train’s horn in an emergency situation or to comply with certain state or federal state regulations. In order for a Quiet Zone to be implemented, per federal law, a municipality has to establish Supplemental Safety Measures (SSMs) to ensure that grade crossings continue to be safe for pedestrians and vehicles in the area. SSMs include features such as four-quadrant gates that can fully block vehicular traffic from entering the crossing, gates with raised medians, fencing, wayside horns directed towards the crossing roadway, and other various infrastructure improvements. In 2019, the city council approved an ordinance to implement a Quiet Zone in the Chesterfield area of

Cardiff-By-The-Sea, however, efforts to extend the zone through Leucadia and the downtown corridor fell through at the time, as the city struggled to procure the needed funding for SSMs, Kranz said. Numerous locals say that the time is now for a Quiet Zone to be established throughout the entirety of Encinitas. Pete Albanese, who lives just south of West Leucadia Boulevard, has launched a petition online calling for a Quiet Zone, which has gained approximately 600 signatures so far. Albanese says that he lives directly within the “Blast Zone” of the train horn, and expressed that he and his neighbors are fed up with the train noise, which he claims occurs intermittently throughout the night.

“I moved here in 2013 and it’s gotten really bad in the last three years, I mean it’s gotten to the point where we regularly get woken up around 12:30 at night by Amtrak, and my neighbor and his kids they get woken up too…It’s disturbing to a lot of people, yea people are very emotional about this,” he said. While train noise may seem simply like an inevitable fixture of life for those living next to a railroad, Albanese explained that the train horn frequency, consistency, and decibel levels have crept up significantly in recent years. An electrical engineer himself, Albanese said that the horns in Encinitas emit sound at a level between 96-110 decibels–a level of volume that he described as not only being annoying but also hazard-

ous to human health. “If you’re having sleep disrupted throughout the evening you’re not getting a solid night’s sleep, which subjects you to a greater risk of Alzheimers and other types of illnesses, and the sound pressure is also harmful to animals, babies, and then when you look at exposure to this noise for an extended period of time it’s a longterm list of problems.” “It [the train horn] is truly disruptive at all hours of the day,” said Kyle Pokorny, who is also helping gather signatures for the Quiet Zone initiative. “A lot of times you’re talking about a 20-30 second blast at or over 100 decibels, and it’s like 50 times a day…even with all of your windows closed you can still hear the train sounds very clearly.” Pokorny, who lives just a couple of blocks east of the tracks north of Leucadia Boulevard, said that he’s extremely concerned about the health risks posed to residents in Leucadia and Old Encinitas by the train noise. “The biggest impact this has is just sleep disruption…every night the train honks several times whether we realize it or not, and it does wake us up so there’s a lot of negative health repercussions to this type of thing,” he said. Porknoy cited scientific studies showing that train noise can not only lead to health conditions such as Alzheimers for older residents but has also been determined

to exacerbate learning disabilities in children. “You can pretty much tie any negative implication due to a lack of sleep as being caused by this train, so yea the train is negatively impacting everybody in the blast region corridor nightly with poor sleep,” he said. Porknoy also noted that the city of Encinitas in fact bans noise levels in residential areas above 70 decibels–calling this law an “incongruity” with the 96-110 decibel levels regularly emitted by the trains passing through the city. The city council needs to work harder in order to make a Quiet Zone initiative a priority he added, expressing disappointment that swifter action had not already been taken in this direction. “I’m hoping to see this as a point of focus for the upcoming budget…the fight for a Quiet Zone started many years ago and it originally was approved, and a lot of work and money was put behind it, but it somehow got stopped right after Cardiff got their quiet zone,” Porknoy said. “Those projects weren’t finished, and so what I and others are hoping to show the city council is that a significant portion of Leucadians as well as those in Old Encinitas are really passionate about stopping the train honking because of the negative effects that it has on our lives.” While Kranz expressed that the council is likely to

He notes that championship games are played on Division I college fields, with the University of San Diego playing host to the local winners. Securing that site in the summer, when it's filled with youth baseball camps that generate revenues, was tough, until Ohnstad played his American Legion card with Ron Fowler, the former Padres owner whose name graces the USD venue. “He played American Legion ball back in Minnesota,” Ohnstad said.

Kranz estimates that the project would likely end up costing the city between $10-12 million, based on a 2019 feasibility study conducted by city staff on the subject. Encinitas does currently have such a sum in its budget, meaning that the municipality would have to apply for state and/ or federal grants in order to begin construction. The new safety features along the tracks would also have to be approved by FRA inspectors before the city could finalize a Quiet Zone ordinance, the councilman added. Kranz says that with Del Mar and Oceanside already having Quiet Zones, and Carlsbad considering a similar measure, the longterm goal regionally is to establish a Quiet Zone that would run intermittently through the entire coastal swathe of North County. “We’re looking forward to working with Carlsbad to extend this thing further north, there would be benefits for Carlsbad in doing this, you already don’t have to sound the horn in Del Mar and we have a quiet zone in Chesterfield, so if we can get downtown Encinitas, Leucadia, and Carlsbad quiet as well, that’s a lot of North County right there,” Kranz said.

Blakespear warned to unblock critics on social media  Residents say mayor violating free speech rights By Jordan P. Ingram

ENCINITAS — A local attorney issued a cease and desist letter on Tuesday night to Mayor Catherine Blakespear on behalf of multiple Encinitas residents whom she allegedly “blocked from participation, comments and involvement in matters of broad public interest” on her mayoral Facebook page in violation of their constitutionally protected free speech rights. Michael Curran, attorney at Carlsbad-based law firm Curran & Curran Law, submitted the demand letter on behalf of Robert Nichols, former chairman of the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project, and several other “citizens rights advocates,” requesting Blakespear allow the residents the ability to freely exchange their views on her Facebook posts. “The Curran & Curran Law firm has sent a cease and desist letter to Mayor Blakespear demanding that she unblock our clients and allow them access to free speech and assembly and participation in her mayoral Facebook page which she uses primarily for city business,” Curran told The

Coast News. The demand states that Blakespear’s actions of precluding certain individuals with opposing viewpoints from commenting on her official “Mayor Catherine Blakespear” Facebook page are discriminatory and infringe on their constitutionally protected rights to discuss matters of local interest in the “modern public square.” The letter promises legal action if Blakespear continues to prevent individuals from commenting on her social media posts. Blakespear and her campaign managers did not re-

spond to a request for comment. Under “Basic Info” on her Facebook page, Blakespear outlines a number of page rules, noting the “views, postings, positions or opinions expressed on this site are my own and do not officially represent those of the City of Encinitas.” The rules go on to state that the social media site is “subject to monitoring” and “comments will be rejected or removed” if they contain obscenities, threatening or discriminatory language, personal attacks or if the content “is off-sub-

ject or out of context,” among several other guidelines. “Any user who violates this policy may lose their ability to interact with our account and/or be reported to the platform authorities,” according to the page rules. Nichols, an Encinitas property owner who has long been critical of Blakespear and currently lives in Oregon, said that many residents, including himself, turn to social media to directly interact with their elected officials on important matters. But if they are blocked, “you feel like

you have no voice, that you don’t matter anymore and your questions and opinions don’t count.” “We want accountability. When we don’t get answers or are ignored, we go to social media, hoping to find them,” Nichols said in a written statement. “Often that means we attempt to directly communicate with our city representative. And when a city representative, like Blakespear, doesn’t like the question you pose and blocks you from public dialogue, well then they’ve crossed that 1st Amendment line by taking away your right to free

speech. “It’s especially disappointing when the person who deletes your comments and blocks you, is always reminding everyone of just how important freedom of speech and expression are. It’s astonishing, it’s one of the biggest premises Blakespear runs her campaign on, yet she has no tolerance for dissenting opinions.” Several other Encinitas residents reportedly blocked from posting comments on Blakespear’s Facebook page issued statements to The Coast News. “It saddens me that our mayor acts in such an exclusive and elitist fashion, using political and legal tactics to climb the political ladder at the cost of silencing the voices of citizens she was sworn to represent,” said resident Ruben Dario Flores. Resident Matt Wheeler said Blakespear “always deleted my social media comments on her mayoral page and ultimately blocked me.” Garvin Walsh, another Encinitas resident who was reportedly blocked, said the mayor’s actions are representative of her strong political persona. “I didn’t like it, but I wasn’t surprised,” Walsh said. “I’m an antagonist and she doesn’t fool around.

cited by Blakespear, Kranz, and the other council members as justification for Ehlers’s removal. “Through statements and actions, Mr. Ehlers has demonstrated a consistent bias that prevents him from performing the core functions that are required of him, and he is unable to be an impartial adjudicator of the projects that are submitted to the planning commission,” Blakespear said at the meeting. “To me, it is a step too far to have a planning commissioner who is involved in suing the city, who rejects compliant housing projects, and who creates conflicts that require recusal.” In comments made to The Coast News and in public remarks at the meeting, Ehlers, who is running for City Council in District 4, repeatedly hammered the council’s decision, which he called a “political hatchet job.” Far from protecting the city’s interests, Ehlers said his removal suppressed opposing viewpoints in city government while hurting his chances as a candidate for political office. “This is purely political. They’re taking me off of the commission, claiming that I’m violating policy, but they haven’t shown how I’ve violated city or state law,” Ehlers said. “What they’re doing is they’re trying to tarnish my reputation, and they’re completely wrong in doing so.” Ehlers also heavily criticized the format of Wednesday’s meeting itself, which he says stifled public criticism of the council’s decision. In particular, he argued that he should have more than two minutes to defend himself against the accusations made by Blakespear and Kranz. “They gave me two minutes to respond to a two-page staff report that charged me with ‘unlawful’

things. Not only did I not get time to respond, but it wasn’t even clear what the charges were,” Ehlers said. “It was one-sided, and the issue really isn’t about me, it’s about them silencing anybody that disagrees with them, that doesn’t fall in line. It’s about suppression of free speech and of differing ideas.” At Wednesday’s meeting, residents overwhelmingly supported Ehlers, with 18 public comments and more than 35 written statements submitted against the council’s decision. Encinitas mayoral candidate Cindy Cremona decried the council’s vote, which she said was politically motivated and directly opposed the residents’ wishes. “Tonight, you are set to fit Planning Commissioner Bruce Ehlers with the hangman’s noose,” Cremona said. “Firing Bruce, with such flimsy cause, is reflective of a like-minded City Council, consolidating power and eliminating an

annoying enemy…Bruce deserves better, and Encinitas deserves better.” Cremona criticized the council for not giving Ehlers more of a chance to defend himself and expressed that little or no evidence of the chairman’s alleged wrongdoing was presented. “Does he [Ehlers] have opinions? Of course. Are his affiliations unlawful or even untoward? No. They’re just not the same as yours,” Cremona said. “More importantly, have Bruce’s affiliations precluded his neutrality on the planning commission? Of course, they haven’t. And tonight, you have presented no evidence to the contrary.” A former city planning commissioner, Ruben Dario Flores, delivered a scathing set of remarks toward the council, calling Wednesday’s vote “one of the most outrageous political crimes

that I’ve ever witnessed in Encinitas.” “As a member of this public and a former planning commissioner, I strongly condemn the proposal to remove councilmember Bruce Ehlers as chairman,” Flores said. “Your proposed rationale in the [report] fails to articulate how Mr. Ehlers has not conducted his duty on the planning commission with the utmost care and recusing himself from any conflicts with his personal views. “Bruce has always been very clear and open about his approach to respecting our local city codes, development standards and relevant plans. Singling out a public servant and dedicated commissioner for your political maneuvering is another example of how tone-deaf and exclusive you all are.” Jean Chapo, another former planning commis-

sioner who worked extensively with Ehlers, touted what he characterized as the chairman’s exemplary record of public service and accomplishments, calling his displacement a “petty and childish political gesture” on the part of Blake-

spear and Kranz. “Bruce has been, in all of the years that I’ve known him, a tireless volunteer in service to this city, and he has done so much for this city longer than any of you have been in political service,” Chapo said. “I’ve served on the planning commission as long as I’ve known Bruce, I’ve always known he has always listened and made decisions based on the evidence presented in front of him. Bruce is a person of great integrity, great intelligence, and great honesty, and I think that you’re making a big mistake by letting him go,” he added. Julie Thunder, a longtime Cardiff resident and a current District 3 council candidate, called Ehlers’ firing hypocritical, noting the chairman’s opposition to the high-density housing policies was well-documented and hadn’t prevented his initial appointment to the position. “Bruce Ehlers has been an opponent of the mayor’s pro-high-density policies. But that didn’t stop this council from appointing him to the Planning Commission — not once, but twice. Bruce brings knowlTURN TO EHLERS ON A17

genial veneer, she’s playing hardball politics.” Marco Gonzalez, an attorney at Coast Law Group, said the law is pretty clear about public officials restricting access to social media accounts. “I’m sure Mayor Blakespear understands these requirements and will respond appropriately,” Gonzalez wrote in an email response to The Coast News. Gonzalez also questioned the timing and motivation of the letter from Curran and some of Blakespear’s most vehement critics. “It is not surprising in an election year that they would band together to try to create a political spectacle where one may not exist,” Gonzalez said. The key element triggering a potential constitutional violation, according to several federal court cases involving social media and the First Amendment, is whether or not the public figure’s social media account is being used for personal use (family photos, personal achievements) or to promote and discuss duties related to their official capacity as an elected officeholder. In this case, Blakespear’s use of a Facebook page as an elected official discussing city and regional business, events and projects, is subject to First Amendment protections, Curran argues in the letter. “For generations, physical spaces — like public squares and town halls — have been critical forums for people to speak out on issues of public importance,” Curran writes. “But with the rise of social media, the avenues for members of the public to speak with their elected officials have expanded. Facebook comments and Twitter retweets are replacing the public meeting. That means (public officials) cannot engage in most forms of censorship, such as blocking someone or deleting someone’s comments just because of their subject/opinion.” Many of the photos and posts shared on her Facebook page, labeled the “campaign page for Mayor Catherine Blakespear, candidate for California State Senate District 38,” feature Blakespear engaging in activities or discussing issues as mayor of Encinitas, including several posts where she urges residents to speak in support of agenda items before the Encinitas City Council. David Snyder, attorney and executive director of First Amendment Coalition, said over the past five years, judges have imported the “public forum doctrine” into social media platforms when determining constitutional speech restrictions. Specifically, when a public official creates a social media account that is primarily devoted

APRIL 15, 2022 to discussing public business, they’ve created a public forum. “Under the First Amendment, when there is a public forum, there are limitations on what public officials can do to limit expression,” Snyder told The Coast News. “But the government cannot discriminate based on viewpoint. They cannot block speech because they disagree with you on a position. If the only thing talked about is public business and the officeholder lists themselves as ‘Mayor Joe Smith,’ that will likely be found to constitute a public forum and to limit the official’s ability to block people arbitrarily based on their political views.” Snyder said each case may vary depending on how the public official uses their social media account, noting that courts acknowledge public figures also have private lives. In Virginia, Phyllis Randall, chair of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, banned one of her constituents Brian Davison from the “Chair Phyllis J. Randall” Facebook page after he posted a comment alleging corruption on the school board. The court ruled Randall’s actions were unconstitutional, writing in part, “Although neither the Supreme Court nor any Circuit has squarely addressed whether, and in what circumstances, a governmental social media page — like the Chair’s Facebook Page — constitutes a public forum, aspects of the Chair’s Facebook Page bear the hallmarks of a public forum. “Randall’s decision to ban Davison because of his allegation of governmental corruption constitutes black-letter viewpoint discrimination. Put simply, Randall unconstitutionally sought to ‘suppress’ Davison’s opinion that there was corruption on the School Board.” Perhaps more famously, the Knight First Amendment Institute of Columbia University filed a lawsuit in 2017 against then-President Donald Trump for blocking his critics on his Twitter account, which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled violated the First Amendment. “The interactive component of the President’s Twitter account, as opposed to the President’s tweets themselves, constituted a designated public forum.” While the mayor’s supporters may question the letter, Snyder said the primary avenue for residents to ensure their elected officials and governments are complying with the First Amendment is in the courts. “There isn’t a roving enforcement body that hands out tickets for violations,” Snyder said. “You bring a lawsuit, that’s the ultimate answer.”

M arketplace News Easy ways to make an impact during Earth Month

Marketplace News is paid sponsored content

Throughout April, people all over the world will join together in celebration of Earth Month. At Cox, driving positive environmental change is one of the most important things we do (in fact, it’s why we’ve invested more than $100 million in sustainability and conservation projects since we launched our Cox Conserves initiative in 2007). You could say every month is Earth Month at Cox. Looking to make your own impact on our environment? Thankfully, local organizations are not only protecting our planet but also helping people, businesses and communities become more aware of how we can all take practical steps to live more sustainably. I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) takes this awareness a step further, providing innovative educational programs that promote environmental literacy for San Diego County students. Research shows that exposure to environmental topics from an early age helps kids develop into more informed and engaged environmental stewards. Cox recently supported ILACSD’s environmental education program for an entire school year. The program educated 23,000 local students about watersheds, ocean acidification, waste reduction, and resource conservation. A teacher from Montessori School of Oceanside said, “My students were left feeling informed and empowered to help the environment.”

Build NCC Project looks toward partial completion in spring 2022 Caltrans and SANDAG Build NCC are working towards the completion of several major milestone projects throughout North County including bike and pedestrian paths, sound walls, Carpool/HOV Lanes, and environmental restorations. On March 23, 2022, the new Carpool/HOV Lanes on Interstate 5 (I-5) from Lomas Santa Fe Drive in the city of Solana Beach to Palomar Airport Road in the City of Carlsbad officially opened in both directions completing nine new miles of Carpool/HOV Lanes. After more than five years of joint agency collaboration, these new lanes aim to improve traffic flow and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Caltrans and SANDAG Build NCC encourage motorists to opt for carpooling opportunities to reduce single occupancy vehicles on the highway. You can learn more and explore carpooling opportunities at iCommuteSD.com/Carpool. Along with these highway improvements is the construction of three sound walls in Encinitas and Carlsbad, to abate noise for nearby residents. The Saxony, Harbor Point, and Altamira sound walls feature a mix of masonry and transparent acrylic paneling to preserve residents’ views

without subjecting them to increased noise from the highway. Enhancing active transportation options and connecting our growing region is another priority for Build NCC. By June 2022, cyclists and pedestrians will have access to new paths along Manchester Avenue near the I-5 intersection, an extension of the Solana Hills Trail, the bike and pedestrian suspension bridge over

the San Elijo Lagoon, and a bike path along I-5 connecting Manchester Avenue to Birmingham Drive. By providing new paths, lanes, and trails, Caltrans and SANDAG aim to promote active transportation as a safe and reliable transportation option for all. Since the construction of Build NCC began in 2017, our crews have been hard at work with highway, bike,

and environmental improvements, now it’s time to celebrate! In early summer, Caltrans and SANDAG will invite you to join in on the fun and walk, ride, or roll on our new active transportation improvements. Look out for an invitation to come, and we hope to see you at our community celebration! Learn more and sign up for updates at KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/BuildNCC.

Making San Diego safer for animals April is National Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month, which means San Diego Humane Society is shining a well-deserved spotlight on the lifesaving work of its Humane Law Enforcement team. The organization has more than 50 Humane Officers who are in the field 24 hours a day, seven days a week, making our communities safer for animals and the people who love them. This specially trained group of officers is equipped to enforce animal-related laws, respond to situations of cruelty and neglect, educate the public and work in partnership with local law enforcement agencies to help prosecute animal-related crimes. Their Emergency Response Team is even trained to go behind fire lines to care for animals in times of crisis. Last year alone, Humane Officers were there for 26,147 animals, responded to 3,432 cruelty complaints and kept animals in 14 cities throughout San Diego County protected. Those numbers are impactful — but they tell only a small part of the difference these officers make for animals. A day in the life of a Humane Officer can include anything from in-the-

field rescues, educating the community about animal care, giving lost pets a ride home to their owners or saving animals from tragic situations. No matter the situation, San Diego Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement team is there to help animals in need — like the fragile 3-weekold kitten who was rescued by a Humane Officer from a recycling bin. His foot

and tail had been severely injured, and the officer brought him straight to San Diego Humane Society’s Pilar & Chuck Bahde Center for Shelter Medicine for emergency treatment. After around-the-clock care and medication to manage his pain, the kitten eventually made a full recovery — and he was adopted by the same Humane Officer who rescued him. When Cici, a 13-year-

old Chihuahua with limited vision, fell down a 14-foot storm drain in San Marcos, Humane Officers rushed to the scene, along with the San Diego County Sheriff’s department and San Marcos Fire Department. Together, they brought Cici to safety. The Humane Officers were able to scan Cici’s microchip and return her to her owner down the street. And when a horse named Mackey fell after a cliff collapsed during a ride in Carmel Valley, San Diego Humane Society’s Emergency Response Team and the City of San Diego Fire Rescue Department sprang into action. Thanks to the combined efforts of rescuers, Mackey was airlifted by helicopter to safety, medically assessed and then transported safely back home. These stories are three of thousands that Humane Officers make possible every year. To learn more about the work of San Diego Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement team, visit sdhumane.org.

edge and experience to the table, and for months, you were comfortable with the presumption that he makes decisions based on the law, not his own preferences,” Thunder said, criticizing what she characterized as the city’s effort to stifle Ehlers’ vocal opposition to “failed” housing policies. “Appointed commissioners do not give up their right to speak on public matters,” Thunder said. “So statements made by Bruce can’t be a proper basis for dismissing him.”

Reasons for dismissal Blakespear, Kranz and the other council members pointed to several actions and statements from Ehlers that they said contributed to his termination. The council reiterated several times that Ehlers had financially supported the city’s opponents in litigation matters and made public statements in direct conflict with the city’sefforts to comply with state housing mandates. A significant reason for the chairman’s dismissal, according to the report, was his association with Encinitas Residents for Responsible Development (ERRD), a local organization currently suing the city to prevent the development of the 277-unit Goodson housing project in Olivenhain. Ehlers’s position as the treasurer for the nonprofit group North County Advocates, which made donations to ERRD, links him to the lawsuit against the Goodson project and puts him directly at odds with the city’s long-term housing interests, the report alleges. However, according to the current members, Ehlers stepped down from his role as treasurer with North County Advocates in September, resigned from the group entirely and voluntarily recused himself from all deliberations and policy determinations related to the Goodson project on the commission to avoid any semblance of a conflict of interest. Also at the center of the chairman’s dispute was

on the community advisory group reviewing the CAP process. Velasco mentioned several priorities the group wants the city to focus on over the next year, including planting more trees as well as developing a zero-waste plan to reduce plastic waste. She noted that most of the cities along the state Route 78 corridor have zero-waste plans except for Escondido. “We’re not going to meet our goals unless we really tackle the plastic problem,” she said. Velasco and other residents also pressed for the city to create a Climate Action Commission to help steer the city’s CAP progress.

APRIL 15, 2022 his support for Proposition A, a 2013 law passed by Encinitas voters that required a public vote for any significant zoning and density changes. In March 2020, the City of Encinitas filed a lawsuit attempting to override Prop A, arguing that Prop A unduly restricted the city’s ability to meet state housing density requirements, but the liti-

commission when you’re running on a campaign explicitly aimed at undermining policies that the council has adopted? Ehlers replied that his record of maintaining a high ethical standard of communication regarding city projects in his purview, along with a pattern of recusing himself from adjudicating cases when a conflict of interest may

“In summary, Mr. Ehler’s presence on the Planning Commission is a liability to the City of Encinitas.” Ehlers disputed the notion that his declaration or statements made to the media presented any conflict with his duties as chairman. On the contrary, since Prop A is the law in Encinitas, it was appropriate

Tonight, you are set to fit Planning Commissioner Bruce Ehlers with the hangman’s noose. Firing Bruce, with such flimsy cause, is reflective of a like-minded City Council, consolidating power and eliminating an annoying enemy. Bruce deserves better, and Encinitas deserves better.” Cindy Cremona Encinitas mayoral candidate gation ultimately was dismissed in court. Ehlers, the principal author of Prop A, publicly opposed the city’s lawsuit and gave a public declaration in the case in which he reaffirmed his support for the initiative, which he maintains is essential to preserving local control over housing and density requirements. In an op-ed published earlier this year and in comments made to The Coast News, Ehlers reiterated his opposition to the council’s efforts to undermine Prop A. Kranz said that while he supports Prop A and agreed with the contents of the declaration issued by Ehlers, the statement itself, combined with Ehler’s subsequent comments to The Coast News, were “inappropriate” for a planning commissioner given the city council’s stance on these policies. “The problem that he [Ehlers] has is that he fundamentally disagrees with the policies agreed upon by this council, and then he goes on his campaign and blasts a whole bunch of policies that this council has adopted,” Kranz said, before pointedly asking Ehlers: “How can you carry out your duties as chairman of the planning

exist, demonstrates his ability to lead the planning commission impartially. “I have no problem being fair, impartial, and unbiased, and in those other cases,” Ehlers said. “I’m extremely careful not to do ex parte communication, not to pre communicate. It’s because I’m extremely careful with the cases in front of me that I’m free to take positions for or against the council policy.” Blakespear said both Ehlers’s statements about Prop A and his purported ties to the Goodson lawsuit render him unable to impartially handle matters of policy concerning similar high-density projects that would inevitably come under the planning commission’s purview. “It is simply not acceptable to have a Planning Commissioner who proposes unlawful solutions; rejects housing projects without an adequate basis; has had financial and leadership roles in community groups that sue the city; self-creates conflicts that required his recusal from considering the only project sited in his district of Olivenhain, and uses the legitimacy of his title as Planning Commissioner to undermine and subvert the city’s goals,” Blakespear said.

Councilmember Joe Garcia was concerned about the city falling behind in its CAP progress. “I just want to make sure we don’t fall behind because this is a document that took everyone a long time to get to this point and there are a lot of requirements for us,” he said. Some residents feel the city still hasn’t done enough to combat climate change and is running out of time to make a difference. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), climate model simulations have projected the average global temperature to rise between 2 and 9.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 to 5.4 degrees Celsius) by 2100. This is caused by heat-trapping gasses like carbon dioxide that are

generated by human activities. Burning fossil fuels are the biggest contributor to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Councilmember Mike Morasco disagreed with the idea that climate change is the city’s current top priority. “We can afford to do what we’re mandated to do by the state,” he said. “We don’t need to be going above and beyond what we can afford.” Though the city still has plenty to tackle with the CAP, the plan itself scored the highest among neighboring jurisdictions whose CAPs were also evaluated by the Climate Action Campaign. “It’s affirming that we have a good plan,” said Deputy Mayor Tina Inscoe.

and obligatory for him to defend the voter-approved initiative in court since the city refused to do so. “As the prime author of Prop A, I was one of the people forced to “volunteer” to defend Prop A because we knew the city would not defend it,” Ehlers said. “At the end of the day Prop A is part of our general plan whether they [the council] like it or not, whether they support it or not, they have to follow it.” Ehlers also said that the accusations leveled by the mayor and Kranz were overly vague in not specify-

ing which exact statements of his had ‘compromised’ his role as chairman of the planning commission. “The report implies but does not detail, that I acted outside of the bounds of the objective standards. It further clarifies that I “demonstrated through public statements and actions” my opposition to implementing the objective standards. No specifics are given. How can I respond to vague allegations without a reasonable public hearing?,” Ehlers said. “I believe that this was absolutely a deliberate orchestration by the mayor to minimize my ability to respond to any valid charges, to the point where she didn’t even detail what statements I had made that were improper —she called what I did unlawful and then never explained what I did that was unlawful.” Councilman Joe Mosca said he ultimately voted yes to terminate Ehlers because he felt there were too many outstanding concerns about the chairman’s ability to remain unbiased when presiding over the city’s various housing projects. “It is so incredibly important that the city is well represented on the planning commission, that the planning commissioners are absolutely unbiased,” Mosca said. “But the statements you’ve made and the actions you’ve taken really demonstrate that you have a bias and that you fail to meet these duties of how a planning commission mem-

ber needs to operate.

Contentious meeting The meeting was a contentious affair and the chamber grew increasingly turbulent. On numerous occasions, Blakespear unsuccessfully tried to calm down the crowd, asking residents to respect meeting decorum and etiquette. But, in direct defiance of council instructions, Encinitas residents, many waving signs that read “We Support Bruce Ehlers,” repeatedly clapped and cheered for each public commenter throughout the meeting. Attendees grew particularly incensed when Blakespear repeatedly attempted to cut off public speakers at the 2-minute mark of public comments, the crowd raining down jeers and boos on the assembled body. The mayor ultimately had to call multiple recesses during the meeting to restore order to the chamber. When asked if he expected such a visceral reaction from the community to Ehlers’s dismissal, Kranz said he was unfazed by the proceeding. “I’m not surprised at all,” Kranz said. “I like Bruce, a lot of people in the community like Bruce, and they took it personally that their friend was removed from the planning commission. I expected a big turnout, and nothing about the testimony or the number of people here surprised me at all.”

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. 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 (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 096614-CA. 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 Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, 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 (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www. clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 096614-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

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. 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 the phone number shown below in bold, using the Reference number assigned to this case on SHOWN ABOVE. 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 Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Notice, advances thereunder, with interest as provided therein, and the unpaid assessments secured by said Notice with interest thereon as provided in said Covenants,

CALIFORNIA, ACCORDING TO MAP THEREOF NO. 768, FILED IN THE OFFICE OF THE COUNTY RECORDER OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY, DECEMBER 2, 1893. The sale will be held At the entrance to the East County Regional Center by the statue, located at 250 E. Main St., El Cajon, CA 92020 The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development will bid $898,547.71 There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his pro rata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling approximately $89,854.77 in the form of certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. A deposit need not accompany an oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $89,854.77 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence. This amount, like the bid deposits, must be delivered in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. If the Secretary is the highest bidder, he need not pay the bid amount in cash. The successful bidder will pay all conveyancing fees, all real estate and other taxes that are due on or after the delivery date of the remainder of the payment and and all other costs associated with the transfer of title. At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned to them. The Secretary may grant the winning bidder an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15-day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be paid in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the discretion of the HUD representative, offer the property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the trustor(s) or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The scheduled foreclosure sale shall be cancelled or adjourned if it is established, by documented written application of the mortgagor to the Foreclosure Commissioner not less than 3 days before the date of sale, or otherwise, that the default or defaults upon which the foreclosure is based did not exist at the time of service of this notice of default and foreclosure sale, or all amounts due under the mortgage agreement are tendered to the

Foreclosure Commissioner, in the form of a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Secretary of HUD, before public auction of the property is completed. To obtain a pre-sale reinstatement all defaults must be cured prior to the scheduled sale, plus all other amounts that would be due under the mortgage agreement if payments under the mortgage had not been accelerated, advertising costs and postage expenses incurred in giving notice, mileage by the most reasonable road distance for posting notices and for the Foreclosure Commissioner’s attendance at the sale, reasonable and customary costs incurred for title and lien record searches, the necessary out-ofpocket costs incurred by the Foreclosure Commissioner for recording documents, a commission for the Foreclosure Commissioner, and all other costs incurred in connection with the foreclosure prior to reinstatement. To obtain information regarding reinstating the loan by paying the sums that are delinquent you should contact the Foreclosure Commissioner, Quality Loan Service Corp., at the address or phone number listed below. Tender of payment by certified or cashier’s check or application for cancellation of the foreclosure sale shall be submitted to the address of the Foreclosure Commissioner provided below.

It is with sadness I announce the early morning peaceful passing of my mom Dixie. Mothers bring us into the world and it’s hard to imagine a life without them. They are with you when you take your first breath and hopefully you are with them, or at least close, when they take their last. My mom was a teacher at Casita and then

Lake Elementary schools in Vista, who taught her own children and her students to think clearly, logically and methodically to figure things out. In over thirty years of teaching, I’m sure she helped shape hundred, if not thousands, of young minds. In her teaching days she also enjoyed tennis, jogging, Jazzercise and organic gardening. She enjoyed a very full and active time of retirement with her wonderful husband Gil as they danced, traveled, walked and talked on Cardiff beaches, calling each other “Darling” every day. Dixie is survived by her loving husband Gill, sister Pam, children: Michael, Michele, Catherine; grandchildren Coral Mike, Evan, Randy, Max; great grandchildren Emma, Isabella, Davin, Cole and Ann Dixie. Rest in Peace Mom. Godspeed.

WHAT IS A “GRAVESIDE SERVICE?” A Graveside Service is held at the cemetery and can be held with or without a church or chapel funeral service. At Allen Brothers, we offer three choices related to having a viewing prior to the graveside service when a church of chapel funeral service will not be held. A Graveside Service can be held without a viewing prior to services at the cemetery or mausoleum. You may choose to have a one-hour Family Only Final Farewell Viewing prior to the Graveside Service. You may choose to have a three-hour Viewing (includes complimentary use of our reception room) for family and friends to gather together prior to attending the Graveside Service. The choice is yours—we’re here to help personalize services for your loved one.

‘Good for the soul’: Join the community garden movement

A

t an age when so many of us have moved from our original homes to live in places across the country, it can be revitalizing to start a small garden or join in a garden project with others. Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Arcadia Place, a senior living community in Vista, to assist the residents start a vegetable garden. Violet, an Arcadia resident, shared her early interest in vegetable gardening. “I started gardening when I was about 9 years old, in the backyard of my parents’ home in suburban Detroit. My parents gave us kids a small place to grow vegetables, and when they were ripe we walked up and down

jano’s garden jano nightingale the street and sold them to our neighbors. That gave us a little extra money, and we sure had fun doing it.” Like so many “senior gardeners” whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, Violet brought to the garden project at the Arcadia her knowledge of growing vegetables — and her ideas of how to eat them! Dino, another Arcadia resident, voted to grow tomatoes, “because we Italians know what to do with

tomatoes!” The project is just beginning and we will keep you abreast of the exciting details. FIND A COMMUNITY GARDEN NEAR YOU If your family backyard is not big enough, you can always seek out local community gardens, such as the Pine Street Senior Center Garden Club in Carlsbad. Contact your local city hall in Encinitas, Vista or Oceanside to find out more about community gardens near you. Ten senior gardeners from Carlsbad and the surrounding area meet each Tuesday to share their knowledge and learn from some of the Master Gardener FYI information that I learned while serving as Director of the Cornell Master Gardener Program in Cooperstown, New York. A full listing of how-togrow all local vegetables can be found at mastergarden-

Emilita, one of the students in the program, has shared her vegetarian recipes with the group. “Most Americans don’t add a lot of greens in their cooking, but where I come from in the Philippines, we eat every part of the vegetable.” Her recipe for “Ginisa Gulay” had all the gardeners harvesting bok choi,

O’side starts fire station bids anew

small talk jean gillette

By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The city will restart its search for a contractor to build a new firehouse to replace the nearly 100-year-old Fire Station 1 across from City Hall in downtown Oceanside. Due to several clerical errors in most of the proposals received in late February, the Oceanside City Council rejected five contractor bids, which were between $12.4 million and $15.5 million, during its April 6 meeting. Due to the mistakes, staff and the city attorney’s office decided to re-advertise the project, which has a total cost estimated between $16 million and $18.5 million. “It is in the best interest of the city to reject all bids and re-advertise the project,” said City Engineer Brian Thomas. Rejecting the bids will allow the city more time to complete its NEPA permit (National Environmental Policy Act) review, a required condition to receive a $3.5 million grant from the Department of Defense Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation to construct the fire station. In order to receive the permit, the State Historic Preservation Office and the Native American Heritage Commission must agree with the city’s CEQA (California’s environmental policy law) determination of the project as an in-fill development. A local tribe is currently reviewing the documentation, according to staff. Re-advertisement of the project began on April 11. Staff expects to open bids on May 12, and to bring a contract for City Council approval during the June 8 council meeting. The new Fire Station 1 is expected to be complete within the next two years and will include a five-bay apparatus space for a fire engine, fire truck ladder company, ambulance, battalion chief vehicle and additional firefighting equipment.

Garden of the Gods  Finnish artist’s ‘Poseidon’s Garden’ displays at City Hall By Laura Place

SOLANA BEACH — Residents have the chance to visit the newest solo art exhibition, “Poseidon’s Garden,” on display at the City Hall gallery and featuring a mix of aquatic-inspired mosaics and paintings by Finnish artist Leena Hannonen. The gallery at Solana Beach City Hall displays rotating art exhibits each month. “Poseidon’s Garden” opened Sunday and will remain on display until May 12. Among the dozens of works in the exhibit are acrylic paintings of landscapes, vibrant florals and ocean scenes like “Symphony of intensity,” with broad brush strokes depicting a churning ocean horizon and sky across three separate canvases. One of the most eye-catching pieces is the mosaic sculpture “Sparky is a good dog,” a dynamic and glittering structure of a dog balancing a ball and fish on its stained-glass nose. Hannonen said her work is inspired by nature and “its impact on our

psyches,” as well as the beauty to be found in darkness. “Getting outside is good for the soul. Through my art, I try to bring the outside in. Living with beautiful objects that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and helps us reconnect with nature,” Hannonen said. “Understanding fear and overcoming hardship are motivators as well as inspiration for constantly evolving my work into high-

er levels. I work spontaneously, letting the moment and feeling guide me.” Born in Helsinki, Finland, the self-taught multimedia artist made her way to the United States after high school and wound up in Los Angeles, where she operated a graphic design studio for 15 years before transitioning to the fine arts. She currently resides and works in both San Diego and Baja California. “I hope to create work

The lobby is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every other Friday.

Why Sungrown?

y thoughtful co-workers ask me every Monday, “How was your weekend? What did you do?” My usual answer is “As little as possible.” That is, in truth, all I require from my weekends these days to be a happy camper. But this Monday I will have a far more fascinating answer. This weekend I harvested macadamia nuts. Have I run away to Hawaii and taken the first job I could find? While that scenario sounds tempting, I have not. What I have done is persuade my kind husband to minimize the enormous macadamia tree in our backyard. Having had some time off for spring break, I spent way too much time considering the future of our neglected backyard. I decided that the rat buffet known as our macadamia tree (it’s their favorite) needed to be neutralized. My husband insisted he can and will top the 20-foot-tall creature. I’m hoping you won’t hear the headline “Older, rather foolish couple crushed by falling macadamia tree. Film at 11.” Meanwhile, he got a major part of it down this week and in the interest of fair play, I spent several therapeutic hours madly chopping up the fallen branches. I also plucked macadamias from every branch and we are getting quite a harvest. Don’t lick your lips just yet. Here are some things I have learned from that annoying tree. Macadamia leaves are very prickly. Also, the nut has a double husk — a really thick one outside and a really, really hard one to crack underneath — before you get to the yumTURN TO SMALL TALK ON B5

ith a trusted map in hand telling us where on Catalina Island we can venture on our e-bikes and where we can’t, we set out from Brown’s Bikes near the boat dock and head south on Pebbly Beach Road. Riding an e-bike takes a little getting used to. We are newbies with these battery-powered bicycles, which are growing exponentially in popularity. A Google search yielded imprecise-but-impressive numbers: In 2017, about 263,000 e-bikes were sold in the United States. Just a year later, that number was 400,000. Experts predict that by 2023, there will be 130 million e-bikes cruising the world. Family and friends who own them love them. I’m a little more cautious when it comes to embracing e-bikes, partly because I feel guilty about riding a bicycle that requires not-so-much pedaling. But I must admit, whizzing uphill with little effort is kinda fun. Flying down Pebbly Beach Road, we put Avalon in our rear-view mirror (which we don’t have but could use) and ride through a tourist-free part of the island. This means little four-wheeled traffic, a good thing for two e-bike novices. Later we cruise up Avalon Canyon Road, which leads to the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden. We decide to visit the next day on foot. It’s a 30-minute walk from the Bellanca, where we are spending two nights and three days. The 40-

THIS DECORATIVE ARCH, part of the substantial Wrigley Memorial at the gardens designed by his wife, Ada, used many local materials in the construction.

room, nautical-themed boutique hotel gives guests a bird’s-eye view of Catalina’s comings and goings from the new rooftop deck. I discover that the lowgrade, uphill walk to the memorial and garden requires more energy than pressing the throttle on an e-bike — which is probably a good thing. We need to work off the lunch we enjoyed at Bluewater Grill (killer waterside views and perfectly cooked fresh fish), and we must earn our upcoming dinner at the casual, congenial Lobster Trap. The extensive menu and busy, welcoming bar make it a locals’ favorite. Both restaurants are gluten-free friendly. Walking the road al-

lows us to take in the details of the route, including an idyllic campground that combines the best of nature with proximity to Avalon. Once through the garden entry, we can see the impressive Wrigley Memorial at the far end, lording over the garden’s 38 acres, which is divided into five plant zones. The memorial pays tribute to Chicago chewing-gum millionaire William Wrigley, Jr., who purchased Catalina Island in 1919 and invested millions to make it “a playground for all.” His family still owns the property and manages it through the Catalina Island Company. It was Wrigley’s wife, Ada, who made the garden her project in 1935. She focused on propagating plants that are native to California and the Channel Islands, but Catalina’s temperate climate makes it possible to grow plants from all over the world. Californians will find many of the specimens to be familiar, but probably grander than what grows in home gardens. East Coasters and Midwesterners will find the collections exotic. At the top of the memorial, made largely from materials from the island and iconic, colorful Catalina tiles, our climb is rewarded with a commanding view of the garden and beyond to the ocean. I’m not sure why the Wrigley family decided to move William’s remains from here to Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, because this seems like a suitable and celestial place to spend eternity. We are grateful to soak in the ambiance of the landscape for something less-than-eternity and thankful that our return hike to the Bellanca Hotel is all downhill.

Old faithful water spot chris ahrens

I

t’s been nearly 20 years since my 55th birthday, but I still recall basking in the joy of lifelong friends and family, celebrating my five and a half decades of survival. Not survival in the traditional sense — there was, and is, no lingering disease moving toward me like a bullet in slow motion. No, but I, like most of you, survived all the dumb stuff done before we were old enough to know better — stuff like hitchhiking alone, driving rusted-out metallic hulks on bald tires through dark Baja roads, watching the roadside grave markers flash by like a picket fence. There are also occasional close brushes with toothy predators on a distant reef. And all those times of being body- slammed in the shore break, wondering if a wheelchair was about to become the preferred mode of transportation. That and all the other insane things a surfer does before clear thinking takes hold (okay, I realize that for some of us that’s never) and we realize the bull’s horns will not miss forever. Of course, such thoughts were not boiling at the surface on my 55th birthday party — well-wishers simply gathered because that’s what friends do for us when we officially cross into senior citizen land. I was thankful that there were none of the usual dark humor gag gifts on the table that evening. Instead, there were books, a small painting, a poem, and a nice shirt. Then, the usual parade of cards, none of which I any longer have. One handmade note was from surf legend Skip

Frye. I can’t believe I lost that relic, but I have not lost the words, “Good any board you like and a trip to Rincon.” Never have I had such a precious gift. I mean, simply going surfing with Frye is something to be cherished. Traveling with the master to Rincon, aka the Queen of the Coast, on a board that people wait years for, was beyond imagining. Somehow life got in the way of our scheduled Rincon trip, but I did get the board, a 6’-10” Fish that proved too hot for me to handle at the time. While I could ride that board, it wasn’t pretty and so I traded it to Frye for the 8-foot Fish I still have. True to the Frye code, I never did put a surf leash on that board. Consequently, it has met enough beach rocks to pave a city street, enduring countless dings and shatters along the way. It has had more cosmetic surgeries than an actor with a 30-year-old face and a 70-year-old neck. The cracks in the surface of the board, not the actor, reveal a life well lived. I rode my Frye on small waves twice last week and while neither of us are in the condition we once were, I was like a veteran lying about his prime, imagining I was better than I ever was. Regardless of my delusions, that board and I have a connection that comes with exploring the oceans secrets together. As for the board’s builder, Skip Frye, he may have ridden more linear feet on a surfboard than anyone alive. Frye continues to build beautiful boards and ride waves in the Pacific Beach area. He still moves like a bird soaring on waves or air, like water in a clean stream. I know more about what motivates Skip Frye with every wave I ride on the gift of a lifetime. So, thank you for the best surfboard I ever owned. Much love and many blessings, dear brother.

SDA grad earns DC internship

NCTD seeks development proposals

By Staff

CARLSBAD — The North County Transit District on April 8 announced it was accepting proposals for mixed-use developments for two separate parcels of land at the Carlsbad Poinsettia and Carlsbad Village Coaster stations. NCTD is requesting proposals for the developments to “accommodate transit operations, foster economically and environmentally sustainable growth, improve rider experience, and promote regional connectivity,” a statement from the transit district read. The two parcels add up to more than 16 acres in Carlsbad. “These properties offer an opportunity to create two transformative projects in Carlsbad,” said NCTD Executive Director Matthew O. Tucker. “Development at these stations will be centrally located near transit, major job centers and world-class beaches.” According to the transit district, redevelopment of the Carlsbad Poinsettia Station could accommodate over 140 residential units, including affordable housing, with parking for both transit riders and residents. The station is serviced by Breeze buses and the Coaster commuter rail and is zoned with a three-story maximum height and a density maximum of 30 dwelling units per acre. The Carlsbad Village Station is located in the heart of Carlsbad Village and draws hundreds of thousands of riders per year. Redevelopment could fit more than 300 residential units and potential for more than 40,000 square feet of commercial space, while still providing parking. This station is also serviced by Breeze buses and the Coaster and is zoned with a four-story maximum height and a density maximum of 35 dwelling units per acre. Offers on one or both sites are due by July 29.

ENCINITAS — Jacob Clark, a 2021 San Dieguito Academy graduate, has been selected as a spring legislative intern for Congressman Jason Crow (D-Colorado). A Cardiff native, Clark is a freshman studying political science at The American University in Wa s h i n g ton DC. “ I am excited to be learning the inner workings of the US Congress. I CLARK spend a lot of time answering phone calls from constituents of District 6 in Colorado,” Clark said. “I listen to their concerns, direct them to helpful resources, and log their comments for the Congressman’s reference.” In addition, Clark writes letters to constituents, attends briefings and researches policy. He currently is working with sugar beet farmers in District 6 on an upcoming farm bill. “The insight and experience I have gained here could never be taught in a classroom,” Clark said. In addition, Clark has enjoyed connecting and collaborating with his fellow interns “who come from all over the United States.” “We share the same enthusiasm for government, but have very different life experiences that we bring to Washington DC,” Clark said. Clark hopes that his experience as a legislative intern for Crow will lead to future jobs in government. “I hope to have another internship this summer near my home in the San Diego area, and go upward from there,” he said.

Chefs, donors help foster youth  25th annual Casa de Amparo fundraiser returns By Laura Place

DEL MAR — Eighteen of northern San Diego County’s best chefs brought an array of delicacies including gumbo, ceviche, barbecue and more to the Hilton Del Mar on Sunday afternoon to benefit nonprofit Casa de Amparo in their fight against child abuse and neglect. The annual Meet the Chefs event, currently in its 25th year, raises around $125,000 to fund crucial programs for foster youth and young adults in Casa de Amparo’s programs. The nonprofit offers a short-term residential therapeutic program, a residential campus called Casa Kids in Oceanside, and transitional housing program New Directions for recently emancipated individuals ages 18 to 25. After being canceled in both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 precautions, the poolside fundraising event returned with hundreds of auction items ranging from wine, dinners for two and overnight getaways, a VIP reception for top donors, and the main event — food from a variety of local restaurants waiting to be sampled. “This event raises much-needed funds for the work that Casa de Amparo does,” said nonprofit CEO Michael Barnett, noting that the pandemic made fundraising more difficult in recent years. “We found that over half of foster youth became homeless in the first year of turning 18.

Once they’re 18 … there’s no support for them. What Casa de Amparo does is try to give them hope.” Private chefs, longtime restaurant owners and founders of new eateries offered small plates of food to attendees, all eager to get the word out about their business while also contributing to Casa de Amparo’s cause. Jane Puntazal and Edmundo Batuigas worked quickly to serve plates of traditional Filipino pork

belly to guests, giving them a taste of the cuisine served at their San Marcos restaurant Lutchi and Mary. Batuigas said it was the first time they had been invited to Meet the Chefs. “It’s exciting — it’s a big break for us,” he said. Another chef at the event, Golden Door Luxury Resort and Spa executive chef Greg Frey Jr., said their San Marcos business has worked with

Casa for nearly a decade. While they are not a typical restaurant open to the public, Frey said they donate leftover food like bread and oranges from their country store and farmstand to participants in Casa programs and also offer financial support. “Our neighborhood is our community. We’ve been fortunate to provide some support,” Frey said. “There are times when we’ve got an abundance [of food] not sellable from a retail perspective, but still very good to eat.” Also present alongside eateries like Dolce Pane E Vino in Rancho Santa Fe and Valle restaurant in Oceanside were chefs from Casa de Amparo’s Kitchen, who cook three meals a day for youth participating in the nonprofit’s residential programs. Chef Priscilla Mendez said they generally serve between 40 and 50 youth and teens each day depending on enrollment and have to communicate with them about their likes and dislikes to ensure they have a good experience with the food. “The kids come from a lot of trauma, and there’s a lot of food trauma.

NEW PLANTS ALONG RAIL TRAIL

The Encinitas Parks Department recently completed the installation of 100 native plants along the Coastal Rail Trail near Montgomery Avenue. This area was previously disturbed and sparsely vegetated with weeds and bare soil. Contractors first removed the invasive weeds by hand, then planted native species, including California brittlebush, California buckwheat, and California sagebrush. Mulch was also added to help retain moisture. Courtesy photo

UCSD study: E-cigarettes alter body’s organs By City News Service

REGION — E-cigarettes alter the inflammatory state of multiple organs in the body, which can influence how they respond to infections, according to a report published Tuesday, April 12, by researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine. Daily use of pod-based e-cigarettes alters inflammation in multiple organ systems including the brain, heart, lungs and colon, the researchers found. Effects also vary depending on the e-cigarette flavor, and can influence how organs respond to infections, such as SARS-CoV-2. The study, published Tuesday in the journal eLife, is the first to assess Juul devices and their flavorants in a multi-organ fashion. “These pod-based e-cigarettes have only become popular in the last five or so years, so we don’t know much about their long-term effects on health,” said senior study author Dr. Laura Crotty Alexander, associ-

More than 12 million adults in the United States use e-cigarettes, with the highest rates of use among those aged 18-24. Despite their popularity, research on e-cigarettes has been largely limited to studies of short-term use, older devices such as vape pens or box mods, and e-liquids with significantly lower nicotine concentrations than the modern rechargeable pod-based systems. Crotty Alexander’s team focused on the current most prominent e-cigarette brand, Juul, and its most popular flavors: mint and mango. To model chronic e-cigarette use, young adult mice were exposed to flavored Juul aerosols three times a day for three months. Researchers then looked for signs of inflammation across the body. located where the city's code enforcement services and storage space are currently housed in the site’s two existing buildings.

ome years back my bride and I visited Las Vegas. At midnight, restless after our trip, we hit the casino floor. Out of habit, I donned my hat, though my wiser half admonished me to leave it behind. “You’re many miles from home; nobody here knows Mr. Marketing,” she said. However, a 28-year habit is hard to break, and I wore the hat into the casino. 10 feet from the elevator, I heard my name shouted from behind. It was a San Diego father/son team, visiting Vegas for a realtors’ conference. Dad was using the opportunity to teach his son to play Keno. We chatted a bit, then went our separate ways. Bumping into them three weeks later, I asked how the conference had gone and drew two blank stares. “Did we see you there?” asked Dad. Assuming they’d been drinking, I smiled, assured him nothing untoward had happened and dropped the subject. Meaning despite fuzzy-headedness, these two men spotted my hat and recognized me from behind. Such is the power of good, consistent branding! Rarely far from my head, my hat appears in my newsletter, social media, and logo. I’ve spent years reinforcing the image in people’s minds. Folks see the hat and know it’s me, or they spot a similar hat and assume it’s me. Either way, I’m on

ask

mr. marketing rob weinberg their minds. Many businesses have no branding. Others settle for initials reflecting partner names, or they use generic imagery that any of 100 different companies can use. But the most successful organizations and individuals have an image that grabs customers and brings their company or product to mind, even if they’re nowhere in the vicinity. It’s why you see a soda bottle shaped like a woman’s torso and think of Coke. And in most minds, golden arches equal McDonald’s. And an apple with a bite from it automatically represents the world’s most recognizable company. As you consider your Q1 sales results, carefully examine how recognizable your own branding is. If it’s not instantly identifiable to your audience, then perhaps it’s time to reconsider your messaging. Because “This is the way we’ve always done it,” or “Charlie designed this” are bad reasons for keeping something that’s not making you stand out, even to those who can’t otherwise see straight. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the Property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of initial publication of the Notice of Trustee’s Sale is $5,837.09. NOTE: THE PROPERTY IS BEING SOLD SUBJECT TO A RIGHT OF REDEMPTION CREATED BY CIVIL CODE SECTION 5715. 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. 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 844-3872537 or visit: www.DelphiLLP. com/foreclosure-information for information regarding the sale of this property, using the following Trustee Sale number assigned to this case: 5210 1006030501. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be available via telephone or reflected on the website listed above. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have the 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.

There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 844-387-2537 or visit www.DelphiLLP.com/ foreclosure-information, using the file number assigned to this case: 5210 1006030501 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the

Odd Files Update The Glitter Twins, Sarah Franks, 29, and Kaitlin O’Donovan, 27, have had their charges dropped in Clearwater, Florida, after a January incident in which they “glitter bombed” one Jacob Colon at 3 a.m. at his home, The Smoking Gun reported on April 5. Franks and O’Donovan, who are married, allegedly threw glitter containers at Colon as he stood on the balcony of his apartment, then entered his home and further assaulted him with glitter, police said, but prosecutors concluded that “the facts and circumstances revealed do not warrant prosecution at this time.” The “twins” had been free on bond since their arrest for felony burglary. Colon had at one time been involved in a “three-way type of thing” with them, but it had ended before the incident took place. [The Smoking Gun, 4/5/2022] The passing parade Rachel Mulcahy is in trouble with Clonard Monastery in Belfast, Northern Ireland for apparently posing as a nun and disrupting services at the church, the Belfast Telegraph reported on April 3. In recent days, she has been served with an injunction to stay at least 150 yards away from the building, but the bogus nun says she is praying for its parishioners. Mulcahy is also known around town

T he C oast News for dancing frantically in the streets to religious music, accompanied by two evangelical preachers playing musical instruments. She sometimes falls to her knees and shouts, “Christ, come into me!” She told the Telegraph that she is “in love. Head over heels. I can’t stop it. I love Jesus Christ so much that all I can think about is him.” But one “insider” claimed she “is not a nun” and said “the congregation (is) quite elderly and they felt intimidated by Ms. Mulcahy’s behavior. They just want to be left alone to pray in peace.” [Belfast Telegraph, 4/3/2022] Crime report It may not be Easter yet, but Mr. Bunny is already making it into the headlines. In Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, a 27-year-old man was in the process of robbing a business on March 31 when an employee tried to thwart him, the CBC reported. But the thief was armed with a Mr. Solid brand chocolate Easter bunny, which he used to hit the employee. The shoplifter escaped but was found nearby and arrested; the employee suffered only minor injuries. The stolen merch was returned to the store; no word on how Mr. Solid fared. [CBD, 4/1/2022] Niche crime Seattle police were called to a downtown art gallery on April 5 after a man who claimed to have a knife stole an ancient

mammoth tusk valued at several thousand dollars, KOMO-TV reported. The thief then escaped in a stolen plum-colored PT Cruiser, police said. Gallery owners said the theft is the second incident in recent weeks; the shop also carries fine-art sculptures. Investigators were hoping to recover the tusk, and the gallery is planning to hire more security guards. [KOMO, 4/6/2022] You can’t park here A strange sight greeted residents of a rural area of Kansas on April 5: a mobile home resting smack in the middle of a gravel road, with no owner (or resident) in site. The Kansas City Star reported that the home was found in southern Labette County, and the sheriff’s office made a request via Facebook for the public’s help in identifying the owner of the mobile home. Of course, theories ran wild among Facebook users. “Maybe they are on house arrest and needed to go somewhere,” one user said. In the early evening on April 6, the sheriff’s office announced that they had found the owner of the abandoned mobile home, and it was later revealed that blown trailer tires during transport were to blame for its temporary abandonment.

ki, New Zealand, received a bit of a shock as 28 tons of russet potatoes from a farm in nearby Matamata worked their way through the factory’s conveyor belts. What appeared to be just another muddy potato was discovered to be a World War II-era hand grenade. “The guys were really calm and collected and they reacted in an extremely professional manner,” Roland Spitaels, the factory’s operations manager, told Stuff.co.nz. Police responded to the scene and subsequently called upon the New Zealand Defence Force’s explosive ordnance disposal team, who removed the grenade from the facility; X-rays revealed it was a training version of a hand grenade, containing no explosives. Spitaels hopes the police will return the grenade to the company when their investigation is complete so it can be put on display in the factory’s trophy room. [Stuff New Zealand, 4/6/2022]

The snake is in the care of a specialist, receiving treatment for a respiratory infection. The animal’s owner has not yet been located.

IMPROVES MEMORY Taking music lessons has shown increased brain development and also helped improved memory over a year when compared to those who do not receive musical training. Research has also shown that as we get older, our natural memory ability diminishes and music has been shown to help that considerably. 3. MUSIC BRINGS JOY! Quite simply... playing music is fun!

Einstein used to play the violin to relax when he became stuck in his thought process – music helps clear the mind and calm the nerves. It is the gift that keeps on giving.

In the moment with Puesto’s Douglas Hasker cheers! north county

ryan woldt

D

ouglas Hasker is the head brewer at Puesto. While his tenure at the family-owned, Mexican-American restaurant and brewery is relatively short, his experience at the Mission Valley brewery is extensive. Prior to Puesto, Hasker spent more than 20 years brewing — in the same facility — for the now-shuttered Gordon Biersch brewpub. I was honored that he recently took the time to answer a few of my questions about his beer journey, where Puesto is now, and where it is going. Cheers!: Hey Doug, you’ve been brewing for a long time (prior to Puesto with ). Do you remember a tipping point where you not only thought you wanted to make a career out of brewing but also believed you'd succeed? Doug: I’m not sure there was ever a tipping point, but I was probably 20 years into my 30+ years of brewing when I finally felt confident in what I’ve learned over the years from Dan Gordon and many others along the way. Dan got his brewing degree from the highest accredited Lager brewing school in the world at Weihenstephan, in Freising, Bavaria, and I was essentially taught by him.

I’ve been there and taken a few classes, and I was fortunate to have interns travel with me along the journey, who were all much smarter than me. So, tipping point, no, rather a slow burn to confidence. Cheers!: You may have noticed that we have been in a pandemic for a few moments. How did the early shutdowns impact the beer program at Puesto, and does this current moment feel different? Why or why not?

Breakfast Lunch • Dinner Let’s Plan Your Next Date Night!

Doug: The initial shutdowns were difficult for us at the Cervecería. The beer program was just coming alive, and each month we would add another of our locations to the mix, so we really had no idea what to expect as far as growth or even potential growth. Fast forward to now, and we have our Puesto beer at all of our locations from San Diego to the Bay area, and we’re maxing out the brewing production. So yes, it’s quite different now. Cheers!: Post your Gorden Biersch brewing career, you continued to brew in the same location

with Puesto, which specializes in Mexican-American food. What made you decide to continue brewing at the time, and how have you been challenged as a brewer working with a new company, new product line, and new customer audience? Doug: I started with Gordon Biersch in 1990 in San Jose, CA, when there were only two locations as a bartender. It wasn’t long before I realized I didn’t like serving intoxicated people and started hanging out in the brewery. It was a natural slide into being a brewer when my buddy the brewer went to open GB in Honolulu, and I got out of the bar completely. I moved to San Diego in 1998 when the GB was built here in Mission Valley, and I’ve acquired a good reputation over the years, which the Puesto family had

heard. So when Puesto took over the GB location, I’m not sure I had any choice but to stay with the building and brew Mexican Lagers. Having brewed German Style beers for so long makes one extremely qualified to brew Mexican beers as they are very similar, though with a few differences. It was an exciting and new direction to take my career, and Puesto brought back a lot of what was missing from GB, given GB’s growth and being a corporate-owned company. Puesto brought me back to my roots and continues to be family-owned. The owners (seemingly) don’t want me to go anywhere, and I’m very happy with this new arrangement. Cheers!: Your beer menu is very focused. Beer drinkers have been conditioned to always be searching for the next best thing, and in San Diego, the next best hoppy beer. Do you find that beer drinkers are embracing the lager again? Doug: The San Diego beer drinker is absolutely (re)embracing the lager again. I just didn’t think it would take thirty years for the cycle to come back again. Over time, it seems the market is tiring slightly from all the hops and adjuncts and is returning to more easy-drinking quaffs. We currently have six beers available, but only 4 are standard house beers. We would definitely have more variety if we had a larger brewery, and we will someday. We’re currently supplying all nine Puesto locations out of our little brewery in Mission Valley. Cheers!: Do you have any new beer/products coming in the near future that you are particularly excited about? Doug: Yes, we made a Cinco de Mayo Pilsner on tap that will be at all locations on April 15th. In the past, to me, a Cinco de Mayo beer was always a $2 TURN TO CHEERS! ON B12

e were excited to reconnect with Tore Trupiano, a world-class competition pizza chef and co-owner of Mangia e Bevi, especially after he invited us to cover a recent Hope Family wine dinner. Trupiano is joined by co-owner Ann Perham and executive chef Phillip Sanchez as the executive team for Oceanside’s Mangia e Bevi, which is part of the Trupiano Restaurant Group, which includes sister restaurants 127 West Social House, Dominics at the Harbor and Trupiano’s Italian Bistro. With our upcoming Paso Robles trip scheduled for late May, it was good to reacquaint our palates with Hope wines as it is one of our planned stops. When we arrived, we were greeted by Kylie Colachis, Hope Family’s new SoCal marketing manager, who narrated the evening. Growing up in a family that was steeped in the hospitality industry as hotel and restaurant owners, Colachis shared, “I love the value that Hope Family Wines places on family. I knew it was going to be a great fit for me based on my own family and upbringing.” The Hope family has been farming in Paso Robles for more than 30 years. When they arrived in the barely discovered Paso region, they planted apples and grapes and quickly shifted over to TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON B11

North County startup event highlights local growth By Steve Puterski

TASTE OF WINE CONTINUED FROM B10

Rhone-style grapes. Little did they know that the region would become one of the top wine-growing regions on the Central Coast. Hope Family Wines focuses on cabernet sauvignon, syrah, merlot, mourvèdre and grenache under the following brands: “Troublemaker,” “Liberty School,” “Treana,” “Quest” and “Austin Hope.” Speaking of family, when we arrived and asked about Tore, we learned that he and his daughter Vittoria were driving back from a pizza competition held in Las Vegas earlier in the day. Later in the dinner after arriving, Tore was beaming. When I asked about his big grin, he said, “Rico if I must lose to anyone in a pizza competition, I am always fine with Vittoria edging me out!” Like Vittoria, Austin Hope also represents the second generation in the family business after father Chuck Hope moved the family from Bakersfield in the late 70s. Austin remembers being a troublemaker growing up as a child. To punish his mischievous behavior, Chuck would send Austin out to the fields to think about his actions but turns out he loved working in the vineyards. This was also the impetus for the "Troublemaker" brand. Dinner started off with a curry chicken puff pastry with thinly sliced apple and carrot slaw. This was paired with Treana Blanc, dominated by viognier and was a great way to kick off the dinner. The viognier nicely complemented the pasty and slaw along with the Hollandaise sauce served with the pasty. Chef Phillip prepared a chorizo-stuffed artichoke with a kick that was tempered with a basil and cream sauce in the 2nd course. This was served with Paso Robles NV Cab Sauv. Colachis said that Austin is so proud of Paso’s accomplishments that he wanted NV bottle to prominently display Paso Robles as a tribute to the region. The third and main course was fall-off-the-

bone cider-braised pork ribs served with homemade gnocchi, aged gouda, cornbread, and mustard greens. This was a flavor explosion served with 2020 Treana Cab Sauv (90%) balanced with splashes of petite sirah, petit verdot and malbec. The 50% neutral and 50% new oak barrels imparted hints of cocoa for this standout course. The final course was Bresaola, thin slices of beef with pickled shallot, paired with 2020 Austin Hope Cab Sauv. A fun fact is that 2015 was the first vintage of Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon. It was not until 2015 that Austin was confident to have his name on the label. The ’15 vintage turned out to be a 98-point Wine Spectator awardee gaining notoriety not only for Hope Family Wines but for the entire Paso Robles region. Great dinner Tore, Chef Phillip, and Kylie. Congrats Vittoria for your win in Vegas! See more info at hopefamilywines.com.

REGION — North County’s startup community is becoming a force of its own. More than 100 entrepreneurs gathered on April 7 at the Innovation Hub on the campus of California State University San Marcos for Innovate 78’s startup series. The event featured panelists on topics such as venture capital, investors, supply chains and more, according to Michelle Geller, Oceanside’s economic development manager. Innovate 78 is a nonprofit collaborative supporting the business ecosystem with the five cities along the state Route 78 corridor. “(The event) focused on entrepreneurs, investors and the supply chain of start-up businesses,” Geller said. “It was great to just be back in person.” Among those attending the event was Erik Groset, founder of BetFully in Carlsbad, a sports gambling rebates platform where customers can access online gaming sites and receive up to 10% cashback in return for their marketing data. Groset served as a panelist speaking about the challenges of startup fundraising. “It mostly centered around fundraising and the journey of startups in general,” Groset said. “It’s great to see so many companies having a fruitful two years given the circumstances.” Groset's company recently completed an “unconventional” crowd-funding effort with SeedInvest, an online crowdfunding platform connecting startups with investors, which resulted in 900 investors and brand ambassadors.

Neal Bloom, co-founder of Interlock Capital and host of the event, said North County San Diego is experiencing a boom of venture capital, initial public offerings (IPO) and rapid growth due to startups. In 2021, Bloom said the region saw venture capital investment grow by three times from $100 million in 2020 to $300 million last year.

Three Carlsbad companies — Pardes Biosciences, Lumos Diagnostics and Tyra Biosciences — went public raising a combined $500 million with a $1.6 billion market cap. Bloom said while much of the venture capital money was on biotech, other sectors saw big gains. For example, consumer goods were led by Encinitas-based Vuori Clothing,

which raised $400 million on a $4 billion valuation last fall. Pardes raised $53 million and tech firm Airspace Technologies raised $38 million. “It’s cool to see some big raises by non-biotech in the county,” Bloom said. “One thing that’s been interesting in Q1 is the public markets is down, so that’s scaring everyone a little bit. So, valuations are a little bit down. But the venture capitalists have raised so much money that they have to deploy it within two to three years.” Bloom said North County’s growth is so rapid it is organically calling for its own ecosystem. “I think it was really telling to see that many people in North County come out on a Sunday,” Geller added. “If you look at the capital coming into the region, it’s definitely a lot more than five years ago.”

Modelo (and far too many of them), and I thought it was time to change that misconception. The Pilsner-style beer is much more complex than the Modelo, though still very easy to drink. Jacob (my assistant brewer) and I are very proud of this beer. Cheers!: If you were going to suggest ONE beer off the tap list to a visitor passing through, which beer would it be and why? Doug: That’s a tough one because we’re excited about all the beers. One of my favorite compliments from fellow brewers that visit is that they can’t pick a favorite because they’re all good. For now, though, to answer the question, I would probably suggest our 10-Year Anniversary Celebration beer, which is an original Vienna-style Mexican lager. Yes, Puesto is ten years old! This beer is closer to something you might have gotten in Mexico in the mid1860s when the Mexican Lager beer industry began.

OCEANSIDE — Mayor Esther Sanchez and the Oceanside City Council honored more than a dozen breweries and their contributions to the local economy in recognition of National Beer Day. National Beer Day is recognized every April 7, which celebrates the day in 1933 when the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law, ending the prohibition on selling beer in the United States. After recently learning about the holiday, Sanchez decided to honor the city's many breweries through a proclamation delivered at the April 6 council meeting. “The commitment and the investment that you all have in Oceanside is phenomenal,” Sanchez told brewers from Northern Pine Brewing and Oceanside Brewing Company. Sanchez highlighted the contribution that Oceanside’s breweries make to the local economy. She noted the breweries are also involved in the local farm-to-table movement — a collaboration between local farmers and brewers, restaurants and other businesses bringing fresh, local food and beer to Oceanside homes. Mayor Esther Sanchez recognized Oceanside

Brewing Company and several other local breweries with a proclamation honoring National Beer Day on April 7. Photo courtesy of Tomas Bryant, owner of Oceanside Brewing Company. “Oceanside craft beer entrepreneurs and innovators, many of them local O’siders, have invested enthusiastically and creatively into our economy, resulting in the establishment” of “phenomenal craft breweries,” Sanchez’s proclamation states. The recognition was a big honor for Bobby Parsons of Northern Pine Brewing, which first opened in 2017 at the end of Pier View Way on Horne Street near downtown and has remained there since. Despite the many “growing pains,” including the COVID-19 pandemic, Parsons said the brewery has overcome a lot since it opened with support from the city. “The city has always been behind our back,” Parsons said. “They always helped us out when we needed them.” National Beer Day also coincided with the opening day for Major League Baseball and National Burrito Day, giving Oceanside brewers and burrito crafters that extra boost of business.

Sage Creek job expo returns By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Sage Creek High School’s annual job and internship fair highlighting professional opportunities with local businesses, nonprofits and colleges returned on April 6 after a two-year hiatus. The JIVE Expo (Jobs, Internship, Vocational and Educational) hosts more than 25 vendors offering a variety of opportunities to Sage Creek’s student body. The students crash the school’s courtyard at lunch, visiting a number of organizations ranging from the City of Carlsbad and Palomar College to Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream, Chick-fil-A and the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation.

The event’s goal, according to Renee Sanchez-Bujewski, president of the Sage Creek Parent Teachers Student Association, is to connect students with local businesses and job opportunities. “It’s great to see all the vendors, community partners and great that the kids have this opportunity,” Sanchez-Bujewski said. “It’s a really good opportunity to practice your elevator pitch about yourself, get a taste of what it’s like to meet a recruiter, do on-the-spot interviews and promote yourself.” Arianna Sharifi, a 15-year-old freshman who also helped organize the event, said her goals were to network and see how the

vendors in attendance may relate to her career aspirations in the field of medicine. Sharifi said she was interested in potentially working or volunteering at a retirement home specializing in elder care or at the Carlsbad Fire Department. Sharifi is looking to make a difference in her community. “I want to learn how to take care of the elderly,” Sharifi said. “I want to pursue a career in medicine, and this would be a great opportunity.” Principal Jesse Schuveiller said it was great for the students to get opportunities to better prepare for college and careers and it’s important for busi-

nesses and organizations to interact with the students on campus. Also, a large variety of opportunities is more likely to reach a wider range of students, Schuveiller said. Sanchez-Bujewski said the PTSA branched out its offerings with the additions of Palomar and MiraCosta colleges, the latter of which was advertising careers in water. “Some want a summer job, some are exploring industry-sector internships and are able to get connected with many organizations,” Schuveiller said. “If anything, it plants a seed and gets them to start thinking, not only about their immediate future, but their long-term future as well.”

Assistance League hosts Operation School Bell event By Staff

SOLANA BEACH — Assistance League Rancho San Dieguito (ALRSD) held one of its many Operation School Bell events at Marshalls in Solana Beach on March 22 and March 24. Families were able to shop at the store with $80 to spend on new school clothes and shoes for each child attending Solana Beach Head Start. This spring Operation School Bell event was funded through a $3,000 grant to the Assistance League from the Solana Beach City Council. Solana Beach Mayor Lesa Heebner and Solana Beach City Council members Kelly Harless and Jewel Edson were on hand to help with the event. Operation School Bell is Assistance League’s signature program. Chapters research specific needs in their local communities; then develop, fund and

implement programs that support children in need. The goal is to help children succeed in school by providing new school clothing; health assistance, including hearing, vision and/or dental care; and literacy, cultural and higher educational enrichment. ALRSD is an all-volunteer, nonprofit service organization dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of children and adults affected by trauma, violence and poverty. ALRSD raises funds through its Thrift Shop at 1542 Encinitas Blvd., Encinitas, along with fundraising events, individual and corporate donations and community and government grants. The money raised goes to the community through philanthropic programs that serve children and adults. Membership is open to everyone. Find out more at ALRSD.org.

Oceanside woman leads way to sobriety By Staff

OCEANSIDE — April is National Alcohol Awareness Month. The number of alcohol related deaths in the United States jumped more than 25% the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. In recognition of National Alcohol Awareness month, local Jeanne McAlister, the founder and CEO of McAlister Institute North Coastal Regional Recovery Center, is an exceptional example of success. McAlister, the founder and CEO of McAlister Institute North Coastal Regional Recovery Center, celebrates her 90th birthday and 66th year of sobriety during National Alcohol Awareness Month. McAlister is the founder and CEO of McAlister Institute in Oceanside. Hearing her age, some might conclude that her position as CEO must be an emeritus role. Nothing could be further from the truth; she’s one of the first people in the office each morning, always the last to

She’s not your average soon-to-be90-year-old; dressed in chic business attire, she can be found every weekday, running up and down the office stairs in her stiletto heels, to guide corporate department staff, greet guests in the lobby, and meet with program managers.

A San Diego native, McAlister was born into a family that was far from functional. Her mother remarried when she was 12, which left her feeling that she was in the way. In the throes of these feelings and adolescent angst, McAlister ran away from home, hopping a bus to Long Beach, where she got a job at a soda fountain. She lived on her own in a cheap hotel for a year before returning to San Diego. Once back, she found that her home life was still no better, so she ran away again. This time, her decision came with tougher consequences, landing her in a girl’s correctional school in Santa Rosa. McAlister clearly recalls her stay, sharing that she and her classmates manufactured beer in their chemistry classes and were always trying to sneak a smoke. “The same things adolescents do today,” she said. Surprisingly, Jeanne liked being at the correctional school. “I felt cared for there,” she said, “and I could relate to the othTURN TO SOBRIETY ON B19

In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather sup-ply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients es-tablish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your check-

ing, license ID, or credit card num-bers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service.
