Del Mar weighing rail ideas

City seeks studies into undercrossings along local bluffs

WHO’S THAT?

Trial ordered in double fatal Torrey Pines crash

— A young man who allegedly drove under the influence and crashed his car near Torrey Pines State Beach, killing two of his passengers and seriously injuring two others, was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges that include murder.

Christopher Ray Schmittel, 20, is accused of crashing a 2020 Subaru WRX through a metal guardrail on Torrey Pines Road just before 11 p.m. on April 25, 2022, caus-

ing the deaths of Joshua Manzanares and Johnny Punzalan, both 19. The victims were thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene, according to police.

Schmittel and two other passengers in the car were hospitalized with serious injuries, police said.

Prosecutors say the car reached speeds of over 120 mph just before the crash and Schmittel was driving under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, Xanax and psychedel-

WHERE THE BISON ROAM

DEL MAR —

The Del Mar City Council has formally recommended that county engineers further study plans for railway undercrossings, among other options, along the city bluffs to help people safely access the beach.

The city’s recommendation came on April 17 after being asked to give its input on six rail crossing options presented by the San Diego Association of Governments, or SANDAG, as part of a 2021 pedestrian access improvement agreement.

SANDAG leaders are eager to narrow their options and work on further designs. But the clock is already ticking, with the agency required to begin implementing these improvements within three years of kicking off the Del Mar Bluffs Phase 5 project, planned to start later this year.

“That is the target goal, to make sure that this falls on right at the end of [Phase 5]. As we’re wrapping up this, we’d like to get into construction of the access improvements directly after,” said SANDAG senior engineer Allie DeVaux. “We have all these great concepts, but we really need to hone it in and narrow it down to get to those next steps.”

If all goes according to plan, these crossings may only be necessary until around 2035, when regional leaders

considers storefront

City working on plan to allow for two storefronts

After years of debate, storefront cannabis dispensaries may soon become a reality for the city of Oceanside.

The City Council moved forward on April 19 with direction for staff to develop a program within 120 days allowing two permits for cannabis shops.

The city currently regulates recreational cannabis retail, distribution, manufacturing and testing businesses and allows for up to two delivery-only dispensaries but no storefronts.

Councilmember Eric Joyce, who, along with Councilmember Rick Robinson, brought forward the proposal to the City Council, said the city’s current policy that only allows delivery options doesn’t make sense.

“When we talk about access, it can be delivered to a person’s storefront,” Joyce said. “For me, it seems much safer to have (cannabis) in a single location and not out for delivery, where there are video recordings and where we have monitoring from our staff and know what is happening in the building.”

For those opposed to cannabis storefronts, the top concern is the potential for increased youth exposure and access to cannabis.

The legal cannabis industry is highly regulated throughout the state and does not allow for the sale of recreational cannabis to anyone under the age of 21. However, medicinal cannabis is accessible to those 18

and older through a medical card or certification.

Supporters of cannabis storefronts argue regulating legal sales will deter “black market” or illegal cannabis operations.

“I know that an illegal market thrives best when there’s not a regulated market, and young people are more likely to access an illegal market,” Joyce said. “We’re actually creating a safer place by having stores that are highly regulated that put downward pressure on the illegal market.”

Joyce and Robinson’s original proposal included directing staff to create a program that would al-

low for up to four cannabis storefronts within the city; however, that was lowered to just two at the cautionary request of Councilmember Peter Weiss.

Weiss and Robinson also suggested prioritizing the city’s only existing delivery dispensary, MedLeaf Delivery, whose owners have been eagerly waiting for the city to allow storefront options instead of just delivery.

Karen Thomlinson, general manager and owner of MedLeaf, Oceanside’s only non-storefront dispensary, pointed out that neighboring Vista has received significant tax dollars since

Police chase ends in standoff on I-5

By City News Service CARLSBAD — A vandalism suspect who allegedly stole a ride-share vehicle in Carlsbad on April 20 and fled in it refused to surrender when officers stopped her on a nearby stretch of Interstate 5, prompting a road chase and an ensuing 90-minute freeway standoff that ended with her arrest.

Darneisha Hill, 39, allegedly vandalized a vehicle in the 6000 block of Paseo Del Norte, near Palomar Airport Road, shortly before noon, then summoned a ride-share car and was driven out of the area in it, according to police.

A short time later, officers responding to the reported crime pulled over the driver of the vehicle the suspect was riding in, Lt. Darbie Ernst said.

When they approached it, Hill allegedly brandished a large knife and made threatening statements.

The ride-share driver was able to get out of the car, after which Hill allegedly got behind the wheel and drove off, then entered Interstate 5 and fled north.

After a tire-flattening spike strip forced the ride-share vehicle to a stop near Poinsettia Lane, Hill allegedly refused to sur-

OFF

render, prompting police to call in a SWAT team and crisis negotiators, Ernst said.

Authorities closed the entire freeway in the area as the stalemate got underway.

Hill, a San Diego resident who was the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant, eventually complied with officers and surrendered.

She was taken into custody on suspicion of felony vandalism, brandishing a weapon in a threatening manner, assault with a deadly weapon, carjacking, resisting arrest and felony evasion of police.

allowing for storefront and delivery dispensaries, collecting approximately $18 million in tax revenue from cannabis sales since 2020.

Vista's 11 storefront options and delivery services pose a significant challenge for Thomlinson, who has previously approached the City Council about allowing storefront options due to her inability to compete with nearby cannabis suppliers.

Although the potential tax revenue is tempting, not every council member or resident believes it’s worth what they consider the potential risks associated with cannabis sales.

Mayor Esther Sanchez, the only member of the council to vote against the direction to staff, said she remains opposed to the idea of cannabis storefronts.

“I don’t want to raise revenue for that purpose,” Sanchez said. “It’s not something for the health and safety of the community… if you’re an adult, that’s your business, but my concern is for the youth.”

Speakers both for and against the concept of cannabis storefronts were passionate about their opinions.

John Byrom of the North County Prevention Coalition claimed that nearly 40% of suicide victims

had cannabis in their systems when they died and that San Diego emergency rooms are seeing about 40 visits per day for services related to marijuana usage.

According to UC San Diego Health, a study identified a 1,808% relative increase in the rate of cannabis-related trips to the ER from specifically elderly Californians aged 65 and older between 2005 and 2019.

Others pointed out that tobacco and alcohol are more readily accessible and far deadlier than cannabis.

“The reality is tobacco and alcohol are legal and available at every single corner store and are responsible for more death and violence in one day than cannabis has caused since becoming recreationally legal in 2016,” said South Oceanside resident Mitch Silverstein.

Silverstein also noted that many Oceanside residents are driving out of the city and taking potential tax revenue to Vista for cannabis.

“I’d personally rather spend my money here and give tax revenue to Oceanside, and I know a lot of other people who would, too,” Silverstein said.

The tax revenue would fund youth development programs, community resource centers, parks and recreation scholarships, job training, improving parks in low-income neighborhoods, gang prevention, drug use prevention and public safety.

Joyce said he would like to see some of the funding directed toward decoy operations for the police department to ensure minors are not accessing legal dispensaries.

asks community to help identify historic photos by photojournalist

Cal State San Mar-

cos is asking longtime North County residents to help identify people, places and events featured in a collection of local historical images from the 1970s and 80s.

The photos are part of a treasure trove of around one million images taken from 1968 to 2001 by former Escondido Times-Advocate photographer Dan Rios.

Referred to as the Dan Rios Papers, this collection was donated to the university library’s Special Collections Department in 2018, along with the rights to all the images.

Most of the photos are of happenings Rios documented in Escondido, San Marcos and other North County cities, as well as San Diego and Mexico. However, around half of them lack context and critical details to make them identifiable.

That’s where the community comes in, said Sean Visintainer, head of special collections.

Until the end of June, community members can view around 5,000 photos needing identification on Flickr.com at bit.ly/DanRiosPhotos and leave comments directly on any of the images they recognize.

“One of the things we were really hoping to get out of this project is to find those community members interested to do that detective work. This is a great way to include the community and draw on some of that shared knowledge,” Visintainer said.

“Relying on local knowledge is incredibly helpful, because it allows more people to use the collection over time.”

When Rios donated the negatives to the library, they were stored in over 40,000 envelopes and 200

boxes, measuring around 200 linear feet of material. Since 2017, personnel has worked to inventory and digitize the negatives.

Much of this effort has been completed by librarian Laura Nelson and later by student Ryan Eble, whose work was paid for via a university grant.

The photos include everything from images day to day scenes to significant events like former prime minister Margaret Thatcher’s 1991 visit to Camp Pendleton.

“It’s really, really rich in terms of the amount of material that is covered,” said Visintainer. “It’s really thrilling to be able to start making some progress to make it available to folks.”

The identification project is a partnership between the university and the Escondido History Center.

According to center volunteer Alexa Clausen, most of the photos in the collection could be identified because the envelope featured the name of the

corresponding Times-Advocate newspaper story.

However, negatives from the mid-80s and earlier were stored in sleeves that only stated the month they were taken.

While Clausen has been able to match some of the negatives to newspaper archives from that time, many were never printed or featured few clues to go

off of.

“They have about 10 years that need identifying,” Clausen said. “In the evening, I’ll go through Newspapers.com and so I’ll just try to match stuff.”

By identifying these photos, the hope is to work toward a more complete collection that can be used

Impersonator scams

As tax season ends, it’s the perfect time to remind the public that if you get a call from the “IRS” saying you owe money and you need to pay immediately using cryptocurrency, a gift card or some other unusual form of payment, this is a scam.

Even if your caller ID says IRS or any other legitimate sounding government agency, know that career scammers use technology to make any number they want appear on a caller ID.

No government agency will call, text or reach out via social media and threaten to arrest you if you do not pay.

In addition, cryptocurrency, gift cards or a wire transfer service are never forms of payment with government agencies, so you should see requests like this as a red flag.

California housing dreams in death spiral

The California Legislators and bureaucrats working on housing would look to the future (say 8 years for the next cycle and 16 years for the following cycle). They envision what may happen, take responsibility and act accordingly.

There is a political steamroller coming from Sacramento to deny local input on housing on the theory that any kind of housing whatsoever is always good, and they know best.

on its citizens.

And there will be significant negative impacts on everyone’s quality of life.

We are facing bloated numbers. Freddie Mac estimated in 2021 that the entire country was short some 3.8 million housing units. Gov. Gavin Newsom has floated the number at 3.5 million for California alone.

A 2021 state audit found that the Housing and Community Department (HCD) has been using defective methodologies in determining its inflated numbers.

verify this is actually the case by contacting the person that the caller claims is in jail and their immediate family members.

• If the caller tells you not to tell anyone about your conversation, hang up. It is a scam.

• Never pay anyone who insists you pay with cryptocurrency, a wire transfer service like West-

This is especially true when it comes to getting cold calls on your phone.

There are so many fraudsters who make a living off of scamming people, so the best defense is to prevent the crime by not falling for their tricks in the first place.

As your District Attorney, I’m committed to increasing communication

The system is eager to build, build and build. Everyone profits: contractors, plumbers, carpenters, developers, mega investors, money managers, appliance salesmen and on and on.

These politics are indeed powerful. The issue that should be honestly addressed is how this will play out in the long run.

The opportunity for new homeowners will be squeezed out in favor of a landlord/tenant model. There goes the American dream. There goes my dream.

Most of Sacramento’s mandated new housing will be occupied not by owners, but by tenants paying market rates or, for a very select few, being subsidized.

Subprime mortgages generated by the last building frenzy ended with the catastrophic financial collapse of our country in 2008. These subprime mortgages financed the build, build, building mania and all the profiteering of those days. And disaster ensued.

The 6th cycle (20232031) RHNA numbers are on average 600% higher than the numbers in the last 8-year cycle.

It does not have to be this way. Our people in Sacramento do not have to be so militant and combative.

For example, state Attorney General Rob Bonta has formed what he calls a “strike force,” using taxpayers’ money to beat down the homeowning taxpayers in our cities.

Impersonation scams were the top reported scam in 2022 according to data released by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which reports that it received more than 700,000 reports about impersonation scams, many of them involving the loss of money.

Here are tips on how to avoid being scammed by an impersonator:

• Do not provide your Social Security number or banking information to any caller, even if the caller ID shows IRS, Social Security or another known government agency.

• If you get one of these calls, hang up and call the IRS or government office yourself to verify.

• Scammers use technology to make any number they want appear on a caller ID.

• Many calls cannot be traced because they originate overseas.

• If you get a call saying someone you know is in jail and needs bail money,

ern Union or MoneyGram, or a gift card — this is a typical method that scammers use to bilk you.

• Never click on links in unexpected emails or text messages including those that claim to be your Apple, Netflix, Amazon, or any other account, and do not give remote access to your computer to anyone who contacts you unexpectedly.

One of the most important things you can do to prevent yourself or a loved one from becoming a victim of a financial scam is to never provide your personal or financial information to anyone you don’t know or trust.

and accessibility between the DA’s Office and the public in order to keep you safe. I hope these consumer and public safety tips have been helpful.

Summer Stephan is the District Attorney of San Diego County.

Today’s rental obligations will probably not, like the subprime mortgages of old, become derivatives, collateralized, sliced and diced and traded worldwide. But the effect will be much the same.

In the great majority of homes there would be tenants with absentee and distant landlords. Tenants and city officials would have no one to appeal to except hired managers with no vested interest in the properties.

Even the remaining homeowners will find their dreams tarnished. In Marin and throughout California, the bloated housing quotas, called regional housing need allocations (RHNA), will foist upon us tenant complexes and multi-story rental quadraplexes with no on-site parking.

The community costs incurred from these unfunded mandates for fire departments, police, schools, sewers, and intolerable parking and traffic congestion will be imposed

Cities are concerned that there will be retaliation with fines and the like if they join lawsuits pending or planned against the state.

The chief legal officer of California has taken it upon himself to thwart access to our courts. This is unconstitutional, particularly when the perpetrator is our own attorney general. We are entitled to sue the state and have our day in court.

In my dreams, it would be recognized that it is irresponsible to develop new legislation and take actions justified on distorted facts.

Our legislators, the HCD staff and other bureaucrats would stop imposing unreasonable, unfunded mandates. They would engage in realistic planning. There would be no more simplistic top down, one-size-fits-all mind sets.

We citizens in California can continue to dream. Where there is responsible action, there is hope.

Encinitas plants 50 native trees for Arbor Day

ENCINITAS — The city honored Arbor Day with the celebratory planting of 50 native trees on April 22 at Leucadia Oaks Park.

The annual event, hosted by the Urban Forest Advisory Committee in partnership with SDG&E,

EPD keeps its ‘military equipment’

Dudek, Davey Tree Services, and West Coast Arborists, is part of the city's decade-long commitment as a designated Tree City USA community.

As part of its designation, the city must also maintain a municipal tree board or department, adopt a community tree ordi-

nance, spend at least $2 per capita on urban forestry, and celebrate Arbor Day.

Last year, the city planted 264 trees. So far this year, the city has sown 100 saplings, including the 50 from Saturday’s event.

On Saturday, Mayor Tony Kranz, Deputy Mayor Joy Lyndes, Councilmem-

ber Bruce Ehlers, city arborist Chris Kallstrand and Francine Busby, a representative from state Sen. Catherine Blakespear’s office, welcomed residents and volunteers at the event before planting the dedication tree.

Several members spoke about plans to grow the city’s urban forest and the

development of a habitat stewardship program to preserve native trees on public and private land.

As of March, Encinitas became a certified bee-friendly city by joining Xerxes Society’s nationwide Bee City USA initiative to protect local bees and build a rich environment for polli-

nators to repopulate. Thanks to West Coast Arborist, volunteers were able to help plant trees around the park.

Residents could also visit various informational vendors, learning more about the city’s zero waste, sustainability and stormwater programs.

Long-awaited South Lake Park opens in San Marcos

ESCONDIDO

— The City Council voted to renew a municipal ordinance allowing the police department to continue utilizing military-grade equipment during its April 19 meeting.

Last week, Escondido Police Chief Ed Varso and Capt. Kevin Toth presented the department’s annual military equipment report as required under Assembly Bill 481, a state law requiring law enforcement agencies to seek city approval to buy and use military-grade equipment.

Under the law, the department must present an annual report to the council demonstrating its equipment, how often it has been used and any associated complaints.

The department’s military-grade equipment includes drones, a robotic platform with intercom, incident command vehicles, armored personnel carriers, breaching equipment, patrol and SWAT rifles, flashbangs, long-range acoustic devices, 40-millimeter launchers with less-lethal impact rounds, and chemical agents.

Several residents spoke against using military-grade equipment.

“It doesn’t make a lot of sense to introduce military equipment if we’re trying to make people feel safe,” said Clay Scheller. “There are AR15 rifles in there… we’ve seen the carnage of what they could do, and we’re trying to continue that?”

Other speakers defended the police department’s need for this equipmen.

“We need the police force now more than ever,” said Robert Netherton. “It’s surprising when citizens with no experience in law enforcement think they have a better solution to stopping crime.”

roadblock in 2010 with the loss of state redevelopment funds, leaving the city short on anticipated project dollars. In the following years, drought shrunk the lake to nearly half its original size.

By 2016, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the city had spent around $3 million on the project — including $1 million for the purchase of land next to the lake — with years still to go before it would open.

mobile home park owners and residents.

There are currently 17 mobile home parks in Oceanside that lease spaces to owners of mobile or manufactured homes.

Mobile home park owners are required to pay municipal registration fees, which help the city administer Chapter 16B of its municipal code, also known as the Manufactured Homes Fair Practices ordinance.

But owners can pass along a portion of their registration fees — up to 50% — to park residents.

Last year, Mike Mohammad A. Ali, owner of Laguna Vista Estates Mobile Home Park since 2020,

Using registration fee funds, the city hired consultants RSG, Inc., which found Ali did not meet the burden of proof to support his request. Ali’s request was eventually reduced to a 3.75% net operating income adjustment that went into effect immediately for residents of Laguna Vista.

However, residents will also have another annual permissive increase of 5.78% taking effect later this year.

“That is a little over 9% rent increase this year for Laguna Vista residents,” said Commissioner Daniel Dominguez. “That’s kind of a large increase for residents that are on fixed incomes.”

Linda Walshaw, a volunteer legal assistant who assists seniors in mobile home parks and formerly

served as vice chair on the city’s Housing Commission, said the residents of Laguna Vista were frightened by the nearly 27% initial rent increase request.

Although that request fell through, mobile home residents in Laguna Vista and other parks remain concerned about increasing rent costs driving them out of their homes.

Walshaw said seniors and veterans are among the most significant percentages of newly homeless individuals.

“You have a lot of seniors, veterans and disabled individuals living in these communities on restricted incomes,” Walshaw said. “These folks bought the only homes they can afford… they can’t have a manufactured home anywhere except in a park in the city, which makes them captive customers.”

The lake, currently filled with runoff water, and its surrounding areas are home to freshwater fish, the rare Western pond turtle, waterfowl like cormorants, gallinules, various species of ducks and other wildlife including quail, deer, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, bobcats and coyotes.

Vallecitos Water District and city officials celebrated the park’s grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony April 19.

“After years of planning, we are so proud to finally cut the ribbon on this much-anticipated community park and welcome residents to this special location,” said Mayor Rebecca Jones. “Today is a shining example of what is possible when you persevere and hold true to your vision.”

Plans for South Lake Park have been in the works since 2005, when the city first entered into a rental agreement with the Vallecitos Water District to rent the property for $1 per year for 50 years. However, the project quickly faced difficulties that delayed its progress.

The project hit a major

Since then, the city has had to drastically downsize its plans for the park, which originally included a wish list of items such as an amphitheater, boat rentals and an overlook area.

The man-made lake along South Twin Oaks Valley Road was built in 1959 as a local drinking water source but has been decommissioned since 1984. It will continue to serve as an emergency water storage reservoir, according to officials.

South Lake Park is located at 975 Sunstone Drive. For more information about the park and its flora and fauna, visit san-marcos.net.

Free stuff pays off

ask mr. marketing

rob

It’s noon Saturday, and Costco customers are lining up to gorge on free food samples.

Manufacturers happily give away these goodies, knowing customers who like what they try are more likely to buy in bulk.

They’re not alone, either. Companies of every kind strive daily to get free samples into prospective customers’ hands, recognizing that this logic works.

Regular readers may recall last year’s start of Write Away Books, dedicated to helping authors go from Idea to Manuscript to Marketplace™.

Recognizing that roughly 98% of the population either wants to write a book or knows someone who is on that journey, my partner and I sought to set ourselves apart from competing firms.

This thinking led to us giving away free samples. Visitors to writeawaybooks.com can submit some of their manuscript for a free critique and, just like at Costco, some folks buy more.

We enjoy providing these complimentary analyses. We get to know our authors in a risk-free environment, and they get valuable feedback.

Our team’s diversity also helps, with virtually every kind of experience, background, geography, age, gender or politics on hand to do a review.

Who’s NEWS?

And yes, giving out these free samples has expanded awareness, interest and sales.

Regardless of what you sell, you too can probably take advantage of this strategy to grow your bottom line. Understanding that everyone wants something for nothing, look at what you sell and find a way to give away enough to whet your audience’s appetite.

Of course, it’s easy when it’s food-related. Give away one Swedish meatball, and you may sell a package of 200. But it works with services too, like:

• A masseuse who gives away five minutes of massage

• A dentist who provides free assessment of your teeth

• A Rotary club that invites prospective members for a free meeting and meal

In each instance, there are minimal out-of-pocket costs, meaning each incremental new customer should add straight to the bottom line.

Admittedly, nobody converts 100% of sales prospects. But with minimal investment, knowledge of your customer profile and location and a willingness to think differently, you too may find your bottom line growing.

Finally, remember hockey superstar Wayne Gretzky, who once observed: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” So go on … take your shot.

With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

plan to relocate this crucial stretch of the LOSSAN (Los Angeles-San Luis Obispo-San Diego) corridor further inland and off the fragile bluff.

SANDAG presented two crossing options: at-grade crossings, which allow residents to directly cross the tracks with warning systems for when the train is coming, and undercrossings, passages through the bluff that would enable residents to pass under the tracks.

An at-grade option would be feasible at both proposed crossing locations — 11th Street and the stretch of 7th to 8th streets — while an undercrossing is feasible only between 7th and 8th streets. In addition, with each crossing, there is the option for stairs or ramps leading down to the beach.

Per an initial analysis by engineering firm WSP, costs for an at-grade crossing would range from $5.7 million with stairs to $9.7 million with ramps, with an undercrossing ranging from $7 million with stairs to $12.8 million with ramps.

In a 4-1 majority, with Dwight Worden dissenting, the council recommended further study of the undercrossing option at the 7th8th site with either ramps or stairs. They also requested that SANDAG review a resident-created concept for a bridge crossing at 10th Street over the tracks.

Several council members, including Councilmember Dave Druker, said they would not support at-grade crossings because of the noise from the train horn and warning systems that would disturb neighbors living along the bluff.

Druker added that the approval needed from the California Public Utilities Commission for an at-grade crossing would add another onerous step to the process.

“For me, I think atgrade crossings, in some ways, are a non-starter. It is not gonna happen,” Druker said. “In turn, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to spend time on it.”

Worden said he didn’t want to take at-grade crossings off the table before more detailed plans could be developed. He also expressed concerns about the permanent impacts of burrowing an eight-by-ten-foot passage through the fragile bluffs.

“It’s not gonna be built until about 2026, and the rails are gonna be off in 2035. We’re talking about a seven- or eight-year window that we’re gonna have something to get people across the tracks,” said Worden. “At that point I have trouble with the undercrossing, which is permanent, destructive to the

bluffs, and it’s most expensive.”

DeVaux said SANDAG did consider a pedestrian bridge crossing early in the process but nixed it due to concerns about view blockage. However, she confirmed that engineers could look at different designs for such a crossing at 10th Street.

North-south trail

Another major part of SANDAG’s planned access improvements is a trail on the east side of the tracks that will run just under a mile from Seagrove Park to 4th Street.

Councilmembers supported the continued study of plans for this trail, with the caveat that any designs for trail fencing should be limited to a short, “fallproof” model rather than tall chain-link fencing. Concerns explicitly centered on the North County Transit District’s efforts to implement this “invasive”

tall fencing along various sections of the bluff in early 2022.

“The north-south trail will be an asset to our community, but only if it’s fall-protection fencing, cable, not chain link, and does not disrupt our access to the beach,” said Councilmember Terry Gaasterland.

Residents and the California Coastal Commission sued NCTD after they tried to move ahead with their fencing project, which is now stalled. At the same time, the agency seeks confirmation of its full authority over the railway from the federal Surface Transportation Board.

The federal board has yet to issue a decision or facilitate mediation between the parties. STB spokesperson Mike Booth said the time it takes to address these matters could vary, making it difficult to determine a timeline in this case.

“[The board] could request more information or

require them to go into mediation,” Booth said.

Next steps

Ultimately, the SANDAG board will have the final say regarding which crossing option to proceed. Input from the city, Del Mar residents, as well as NCTD, will be taken into consideration, DeVaux said.

“We will need multi-agency collaboration moving forward,” DeVaux said. “We need to build something that the city, SANDAG and NCTD all agree on, and the city is a very important part of that.”

NCTD representative Colleen Windsor said the district was an “active participant” in the Coastal Connections Study and that they have provided their feedback on the trail and crossing options.

“NCTD will continue its review of proposed designs as they advance through the process,” Windsor said.

To participate in the photo identification project, residents only need to create a free Flickr account, which allows them to make and publish comments.

While all identified photos will be removed from Flickr at the end of June, those that still need context will remain online so community members can continue to look through them.

Visintainer said the next steps regarding the physical collection are to rehouse the negatives into “archivally safe materials” and create a catalog record for the collection’s contents.

He also hopes to hire another student who can digitize even more images with the help of another grant.

“In the future, folks will be able to go and search through our finding aid and our digitized images,” he said.

Drag fundraiser moves forward with new date at Belly Up

The annual Disney Drag Takeover Benefit Show at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach has been rescheduled to May 23, with organizers eager to move forward following a veiled online threat that canceled last month’s fundraiser event.

The event serves as the North County LGBTQ Resource Center’s single largest fundraiser for Pride by the Beach, their annual pride celebration in Oceanside. Ticket sales to the popular show are expected to bring in around $10,000, which goes toward making the June pride event free to all attendees.

Organizers decided to cancel the original show in late March after a video surfaced online containing unspecified threats of violence, mentioning the Belly Up and the date and time corresponding with the drag show.

Roxanne Deatherage, Pride director at the resource center, said the organization is grateful for the community’s support and the performers and is focused on putting on a great show next month.

“We are very grateful, and Pride by the Beach is very grateful, to our drag queens supporting us and sharing their art with us, because they do this completely for free,” said Deatherage.

Those who bought tickets for the March show can use them for the rescheduled performance or receive a refund if they are unable to make it to the newly-scheduled event.

Among the queens

In loving memory of Willa Jean Verbanic

August 18, 1932March 29, 2023

slated to take the stage are Mariam T, Penny Dreadfuls, Kickxy Vixen, Big Dee, Paris Sukomi Max, Dolly Levi, Naomi Daniels and Chad Michaels, the winner of season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.

“This event is usually one of the funnest nights of the year, and supports a great cause, so we’re really looking forward to having it back in the club again,” said Belly Up president Chris Goldsmith.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department initially responded to the threat, which surfaced just hours before the show’s scheduled start on March 28. However, a search that day by the department’s Bomb/Arson Unit did not find anything of concern, and the case was quickly passed onto the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

A spokesperson for the FBI’s San Diego Office said they continue to investigate the threat but that there are “no current or pending threats to public safety.”

from the Marine Corps, the family relocated to Oceanside and started Vectra Corporation, a successful TV, electronics and appliance repair business. After selling the business and retiring, they turned their hobby of buying and selling antiques into a full-time business that evolved into owning one of the largest antique malls in North San Diego County.

“The FBI has opened an investigation into the recent incident at Belly Up in Solana Beach and is working with our interagency partners to determine the nature and scope of this matter,” said Jolanda Wesley. “We take these threats of violence very seriously. However, out of respect for that ongoing investigation, we will continue to refrain from commenting on its substance.”

Officer struck by vehicle on I-15 freeway shoulder

An Escondido police officer was struck and knocked onto the hood of a Ford Focus on the shoulder of Interstate 15 on April 23 as he was directing traffic around a stalled vehicle.

The officer was off-duty on his way to work when the California Highway Patrol was notified of a hit-and-run at 10:27 a.m. Sunday on I-15 near Deer Springs Road, authorities said.

Traffic on the freeway had slowed because of a stalled vehicle on the shoulder and the officer got out of his vehicle to help direct traffic, the Escondido Police Department said. The officer’s wife and children were inside the vehicle.

A red Ford Focus was trying to get around the slow traffic by driving on the shoulder when the vehicle hit the officer and knocked him onto the hood, according to the EPD.

The officer received minor injuries, called EPD dispatch and gave them the license number of the vehicle that struck him.

Police officers arrived at the scene and detained the driver of the Focus.

No other injuries were reported, and the CHP was investigating the incident.

Ex-Marine gets 12 years for drug trafficking

A former San Diego-based U.S. Marine who coordinated the trafficking of fentanyl and other drugs into the United States was sentenced last week to 12 years in federal prison.

While stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Roberto Salazar II recruited people to work as couriers — including fellow former Marines — to transport drugs across the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Along with fentanyl, prosecutors say Salazar directed the movement of

heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine, and sometimes transported those drugs personally.

According to Salazar’s plea agreement, these activities stretched from around 2015 until early last year. Prosecutors say “dozens’’ of smuggling incidents occurred over that time period under Salazar’s direction.

His plea agreement outlined a few of these events, including one occasion where Salazar paid a classmate at Southwestern Community College to drive a car loaded with drugs across the border, then deliver the product to various locations for further distribution.

One ex-Marine recruited by Salazar smuggled drugs into the country on five separate occasions, while another ex-Marine moved drugs both into and within the United States multiple times until being arrested at the San Ysidro Port of Entry,

VOLUNTEER

where just under 15 pounds of fentanyl were found hidden in the engine compartment of the car the former Marine was driving, according to the plea agreement.

During Salazar’s sentencing hearing in San Diego federal court, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Miller said Salazar’s movement of drugs such as fentanyl into the U.S. contributed to the “poisoning (of) our citizens, the very citizens he was sworn to protect.’’

Salazar told the judge, “I know I made a mistake. I got out of this before. I tried to stay on the right path.’’

Following the hearing, U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman said Salazar’s prosecution and prison sentence represented the dismantling of “another link in the supply chain for fentanyl and deadly drugs into the United States.’’

San Marcos, California – Willa Jean Verbanic, 90, of San Marcos, passed away on March 29, 2023 of natural causes.

“Jean”, as she was known to friends and family, was born in Buffalo, Missouri on August 18, 1932 to Vera and Cecil Sanford. She attended Edison High School in Stockton, California where she was a cheerleader and Homecoming Queen.

She was married to Marine Corps Master Sergeant Joseph “Joe” Robert Verbanic (retired) and spent most of her early years raising a family and following his career which included service in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

After Joe’s retirement

After her husband’s passing in 1995, Jean retired again and moved to Murrieta where she pursued her interests in crafting and painting while serving on her HOA’s board of directors and in other volunteer positions.

In 2015, she moved to San Marcos to be closer to her family.

Jean is survived by her two children, Linda (Verbanic) Geldner and Joseph R. Verbanic II.

Jean will be laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery with Joe and their infant son. A private service is planned for close friends and family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to one of her favorite charities, Tunnels to Towers.

Big thanks as ‘Small Talk’ heads for the door

‘You’re going to miss me when I’m gone.” That used to be my favorite smart remark as I went out the door. But I am fresh out of glib remarks now, as I retire from The Coast News newsroom and the world of print media.

I began my career in 1973 at the San Clemente Sun Post. From there I went to Palm Springs, then the chain of Glendale papers

ic mushrooms.

One of the surviving passengers, Aaron McCray, testified at a preliminary hearing on Tuesday that he and the other men left the Riverside County city of Wildomar earlier that day, with Schmittel behind the wheel.

McCray testified that Schmittel drove as fast as 110 mph on the winding Ortega Highway and was repeatedly swerving into oncoming traffic in order to avoid having to slow down on the highway’s curves.

Once on southbound Interstate 5 heading toward San Diego, Schmittel drove up to 140 mph, McCray said.

At some point, the group stopped at a beach and drank alcohol, and McCray said he saw

small talk

and some time at the Pasadena Star-News.

After moving to San Diego, I worked a few months at the Oceanside Blade Tri-

bune and then on to The Coast News.

I am lucky enough to have been part of this extraordinary community newspaper for 25 really fun years. I still believe that this is where you get the news that matters to you, that you won’t find anywhere else. My decades at The Coast News, like all my time as a journalist, were the most fun you can have and still work.

When you work in print news, every day is different. You have your finger on the pulse of your city and the world and you never know what will happen next.

I only discovered I had some talent for writing after I left college. (I’ve always been a late bloomer.) Once I tasted the high of getting published every day, I was hooked.

Working in a newsroom, surrounded by bright,

gers asking Schmittel if he was “good to drive,” to which Schmittel replied, “Yeah.”

McCray was seated in the center backseat of the car between Manzanares and Punzalan and he testified that when he woke up, neither man was next to him.

clever writers and editors, kept me informed, feeling young and laughing, far beyond the norm.

I also feel privileged to have had a place to continue sharing my Small Talk column all these years.

I will never be able express enough thanks to Coast News publishers Jim and Chris Kydd, who treated me like family and royalty.

I will miss the jour-

nalism world and everyone here enormously and will probably continue to mentally edit everything I read. And once I am gone, I do hope you will miss me just a little bit.

Schmittel consume mushrooms.

A blood draw later taken from Schmittel indicated marijuana and Xanax were also in his system, and he had a blood-alcohol level of around .08%,

which is the legal driving limit in California for people over the age of 21.

McCray testified that the last thing he remembered before waking up in the crumpled vehicle was one of the other passen-

Officer Dominic Amato of the San Diego Police Department, one of the officers who responded to the crash scene, said that after the car struck the center median, then rammed through the guardrail, it dropped about 20 to 25 feet to the beach below, rolled over and ended up at least 50 yards from the roadway.

Amato testified that debris — including cans of alcohol — was strewn from the road to the site of the mangled car.

At the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, defense attorney Terry Allen asked San Diego Superior Court Judge Aaron Katz to dismiss the murder charges and argued a gross vehicular manslaughter charge was a more appropriate principle count.

But Deputy District Attorney Hailey Williams said Schmittel nearly hit multiple cars during a four-hour drive from Riverside County to San Diego and “was on full notice of the dangers of his driving following near miss after near miss that day.”

In binding Schmittel over on the murder counts, Katz said he was “struck by the sheer callousness of Mr. Schmittel, the manner in which he drove this vehicle” and believed Schmittel “had absolutely no care or concern about other people’s lives.”

Film highlights Vista’s pot industry

VISTA — A podcaster turned filmmaker is planning to release a fulllength documentary film this summer showcasing the growth and impact of Vista’s budding cannabis industry since the city legalized recreational marijuana five years ago.

“California Cannabis Corridor,” a film produced by Zeke Corley, takes a closer look at a variety of aspects related to the city’s legalized recreational cannabis industry, including law enforcement, business models, dispensaries, city revenue and dispelling myths long associated with marijuana.

Corley, host of the Same Business Different Day podcast, previously worked on podcasts in conjunction with the city of Vista, including episodes about the city’s historic downtown (“Visiting Downtown Vista”) and local breweries (“Pioneer Beer Trail”).

Originally, Corley made a series of short videos offering a “behindthe-doors” look at five of the city’s successful cannabis dispensaries hosted by Councilman Joe Green, a proponent of legalized marijuana who helped champion Measure Z, a 2018 citizens’ initiative legalizing recreational cannabis in Vista.

Green said he jumped at the opportunity, hosting five short videos featuring local cannabis dispensaries. But after making the video series, the group of cannabis enthusiasts felt there was more that needed to be told.

Soon, Corley and his

production team, A Different Day Radio, along with Star Fox Media and Guide Me Tours, expanded the short video series into a full-length documentary film.

“I feel like the cannabis industry is another draw to the city of Vista,” Green said. “Since it’s been implemented, it’s been a great revenue generator, but we haven’t seen the focused impacts. It was eye-opening (producing the film). We’ve seen them really step up for the community.”

The feature-length film includes footage and interviews with owners and employees from Hello Cannabis, Off The Charts, Coastal Wellness, Wellgreens and Tradecraft Farms.

Sidl Hurmiz, owner of Hello Cannabis, and his niece, Shanna Hurmiz, the store's general manager, said the documentary was a great opportunity to show the inner workings of a dispensary and the industry.

Shanna said one of the biggest challenges is the ongoing stigma surrounding the cannabis industry as a whole.

“By having the City Council behind us trying to get a better point of view of cannabis, (residents) can see us doing something good for the community,” Shanna said.

A spokesperson said they expect the Vista cannabis documentary to be released sometime in July. Green said he hopes to partner with a movie theater for the film's premiere, but so far, the date and time have yet to be determined.

Running Boys & Girls Club runs in family

Hang around the Carlsbad Boys & Girls Club long enough and the impossible seems possible.

“I never dreamed in a million years,” Greg Nelson said, “that Chad would be the club’s CEO.”

Chad Nelson was recently introduced as the organization’s new head honcho. And yes, Chad is following in the footsteps of his father, Greg, in being its CEO.

“I wanted a bit of a change, a new chapter,” Chad said. “I wanted something more rewarding than chasing sales and chasing dollars.”

We’ll cut to the chase: Greg Nelson was the CEO from 1978 to ’80 and now it’s Chad’s chance to turn developing children into solid adults.

“We have a long history there,” Chad said. “My dad was dropped off there as a kid in the 1950s and moved his way up to CEO. I was always there as a kid, too.”

No kidding, the Carlsbad Boys & Girls Club is a gem. With locations in Carlsbad Village and Bressi Ranch, it serves more than 500 youngsters ages 6-17.

Countless youth have come of age there, where there’s always a welcome mat outside the door and a wide-open window into

Poinsettia pickleball, tennis players seek compromise

— The rise of pickleball continues at a meteoric rate across the United States. And with six pickleball courts, Carlsbad’s 42-acre Poinsettia Park has become a popular destination for local players.

The pickleball courts are so popular, some players wait 30 minutes or longer for a space to become available, which has the city considering increasing the number of shared courts (pickleball and tennis) at the park.

In addition to the pickleball courts, Poinsettia Park, the largest public tennis complex in the city, offers 10 lighted tennis courts. Since one tennis court is equivalent to four pickleball courts, some picklers believe there is plenty more space to share.

Picklers Elliott Fritz, Andrew Espinoza and Ryan West-DeLuca, who picked up the “addictive” sport during the pandemic, said the city needs more pickleball courts, and a possible sharing situation with the tennis courts is a suitable compromise.

“It’s almost not worth driving over sometimes because it’s so busy,” West-DeLuca said, who used to play tennis. “There’s more of us, so I think they can spare one (tennis court).

It would give us four (pickleball) courts.”

But for some tennis players, court-sharing with picklers is a burdensome notion. Since both sports play on the same surface, the conflict between players of the two sports has only increased with pickleball’s growing popularity.

Eric Jew, a tennis coach at Sage Creek High School, said a solution is likely to be found, but it shouldn’t

Winner of European titles named new coach of Gulls

By City News Service REGION — Matt McIlvane has been hired as coach of the San Diego Gulls after winning five league championships as a coach and assistant coach in Europe over the last 10 seasons, it was announced April 25.

McIlvane succeeds Roy Sommer, who retired after one season as their coach on April 15, the day of the Gulls’ final game of the season.

“Matt brings a winning pedigree to our organization in addition to a strong culture of development and performance,” Pat Verbeek,

the general manager of the Anaheim Ducks, the Gulls’ NHL parent team, said in a statement.

McIlvane spent the past four seasons coaching EC Red Bull Salzburg of the ICE Hockey League, the top-tier league in Austria, which also includes teams from Hungary, Italy and Slovenia.

McIlvane led Salzburg to back-to-back league championship in the 202122 and 2022-23 seasons, and also won an ICE Hockey League title as assistant with Salzburg in 2013-14.

come at the expense of tennis courts. Residents are not permitted access to use the school’s courts at any time, and high school tennis players do not have access to courts after school hours.

“There’s not very many courts all around San Diego County,” Jew said of pickleball. “It’s growing so quickly that tennis courts are being impacted. It’s a longer game (tennis), and if there are fewer courts, it’s going

to take longer. I agree there should be more pickleball courts, but not at the expense of tennis courts.”

While both games involve paddles and balls, pickleball and tennis are significantly different. Pickleball is played at a much quicker pace, while tennis involves multiple sets.

Earlier this year, city staff conducted a six-week usage study and found pickleball usage was higher than ten-

nis, but provided no data.

“Both advocate groups preferred dedicated (nonshared) courts, and neither has expressed a change in that preference,” said Kyle Lancaster, the city’s Parks and Recreation Director. “We are just finishing an updated Parks & Recreation Master Plan, which will be presented to the City Council for review in the coming months. At that time, we will share the feedback from the community about pickleball courts as well as other new or expanded amenities. Pickleball courts are amenities that could be considered for future park sites, e.g., Robertson Ranch Community Park and Zone 5 Park, depending on the site-specific community engagement and conceptual planning.”

Bobby Riggs Tennis Club in nearby Encinitas has repurposed nearly all its courts for pickleball, but players must pay a membership fee to play.

Lancaster said the city is continuing its goal of providing a variety of amenities, such as pickleball courts, and adapting to new sports and trends. The city’s master plan could provide a roadmap with various possibilities to expand pickleball citywide, but the City Council will make the final decision, Lancaster said.

Alejandra’s sparkles in Carlsbad

taste of wine

When I first arrived in La Costa 25 years ago, Crazy Burro, or The Burro for locals, was the spot to be for food, entertainment, and ambiance. It was a place where people gathered to watch games, listen to music, and socialize.

Beer lovers head east to Jacked Up Brewery

Coastal craft brew enthusiasts, enjoying our embarrassment of riches, can sometimes forget to look eastward. On my recent venture to Escondido, I revisited Jacked Up Brewery.

Not only was I impressed by the lineup of beer (and seltzer) offerings, but the venue has grown into a destination spot offering much more than just award-winning beer.

Michael and Caroline Paulson opened Jacked Up in 2016, and each year has seen exponential growth. I sat down with the couple to learn more about their beers, their plans and their commitment to the community.

Cheers!: Thank you for having me! I am excited to hear the story of Jacked Up Brewery. But first, tell me about this beer we are drinking.

Michael: This is the Razz Sour. It started off as a cream ale. Then we allowed wild yeast to get into it and allow it to sour. It’s a true sour; we expose it to the air and let Mother Nature do her thing. And it’s not too sour, just a little tart on the tongue. Has that nice bite, but not overpowering. We introduce raspberry into it to give it that nice sweet kick.

Cheers!: It’s both light and jammy at the same time.

Michael: It’s refreshing, perfect for spring and summer. More tart than sour, really.

Cheers!: Tell us about your beer journey.

Michael: My journey in beer started in 1994 when I thought I could brew beer cheaper than buying it. Which is every homebrewer’s thought.

Caroline: It was before the internet. So we went down to Tacoma to a homebrew store, bought a book, bought the equipment, took it home and started making beer.

Cheers!: What was the first beer?

Caroline: An apricot hefeweizen!

Michael: When I retired from my construction company, I said to Caroline: let’s start a brewery.

Caroline: And we said, if we’re going to do this, let’s do it in San Diego. San Diego has great beer, and if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

Cheers!: When did you know it would work?

Caroline: When we started entering home brewing contests and winning medals, I knew we wouldn’t be looking back.

Cheers!: Speaking of awards, you’ve recently won a Gold Medal for your Dragon Fruit IPA.

Michael: That is our most popular beer here. It’s seasonal.

Caroline: When we have fresh dragon fruit, we brew it. All our dragon fruit is locally sourced.

Michael: The beer has an IPA base. We use 30 pounds of fruit per barrel. The whole idea for this beer came to us in 2017 when a local grower asked if I’ve ever brewed with dragon fruit. I said, “No.” He said, “Well, I have a whole bunch of it.” So we gave it a try.

Cheers!: This is the most unique IPA I’ve ever had from both a color and flavor perspective.

Michael: We went to the pink and red fruits to give it that deep red color. The color is based on the fruit. We make the beer, but God makes the fruit, so the color can vary from batch to batch. The sweetness of the fruit kills the bittering Warrior and Simcoe hops.

Caroline: Careful, this beer is dangerous. It’s a triple IPA. 11% ABV.

Cheers!: Wow! You’d never know that.

Michael: The dragon fruit hides the esters. We take the fruit, we flesh it out of the skin, we freeze it, and as it thaws, it self-purees. We introduce it into

Sadly, The Burro closed in 2008, and the location saw a few short-lived restaurants come and go over the years. When Ignite Bistro and Wine Spot closed in 2020, it seemed like something was missing from the corner of Alga and El Camino Real.

That’s why I was thrilled to see the sign for Alejandra’s Fine Mexican Food and Cantina go up in 2022. As a part of the Grand Restaurant Group (GRG), which also owns Bellamy’s, Cork & Knife, Giaola Italian Kitchen, DiCicco’ s, and Nick & G’s, I knew Alejandra's would be a welcome addition to the local dining scene.

We recently reviewed Alejandra’s, and one word quickly comes to mind: IMPRESSIVE! Despite being open for only a few months, Alejandra’s has already earned OpenTable’s Diners Choice award for good reason.

Guests are invited to experience a unique twist on traditional Mexican cuisine under the leadership of executive chef Amy DiBiase, who draws on a decade of experience managing acclaimed local restaurants, including culinary lead for downtown’'s Intercontinental Hotel and the award-winning Tidal at Paradise Resort & Spa. Chef Kevin and chef Dona also assist her in crafting GRG menus.

DiBiase is admired for her bold, modern take on classically revered French and Italian dishes. After spending her formative years in her family’s New

England restaurant, Amy was destined for culinary stardom.

At Johnson & Wales University, she double majored in both culinary arts and food service management. The combination of her passion for cooking, extensive experience, and exceptional culinary skills makes her an incredible asset to the GRG team.

Alejandra’s commitment to using fresh, seasonal ingredients to create made-from-scratch Mexican dishes is evident in every bite as well as a wood fire for chicken and fish dishes.

The beverage program also impresses with freshly squeezed juices, hand-selected wines, local craft beers, and an exceptional selection of spirits, including the must-try Alejandra’s Signature Margarita. This cocktail features Codigo Rosa Tequila aged in previously used cabernet sauvignon barrels with triple sec, fresh lime, hibiscus, smoked black sea salt, and a torched rosemary sprig.

The flavors in this margarita are unique, and it's a testament to the care and creativity that goes into everything at Alejandra's.

Upon our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Kristina Miller, Director of Operations for Bellamy’s, Nick & G, Giola, and Alejandra’s, and Juan Canche, Alejandra’s General Man-

ager. Throughout the evening, Trinity Opp, our Server Extraordinaire, proved to be not only friendly but also incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.

Our dining experience started with Alejandra’s Margarita for me and a Tropicus Black Plaque Czech Pilsner for Frank. For appetizers, we had guacamole with tomato, blistered jalapeno, and charred onion served with crispy tortilla chips sprinkled with Tajin Chile Lime seasoning. The tortilla chips are light and crispy because they are cut from whole tortillas, then fried.

After the guacamole, we indulged in a variety of additional appetizers and main entrees, including the chicken taquitos and the Huarache de Birria — masa flatbread topped with meltin-your-mouth braised short ribs, crema, pickled onions, and queso fresco.

As a self-proclaimed carnitas lover, it was an easy choice for me to order the Carnitas platter, slow-roasted pork shoulder served with flour tortillas, rice, beans, cactus pico, and avocado that left my taste buds dancing.

Meanwhile, Frank opt-

ed for the Chuleta al Pastor, a brined and adobo-marinated Tomahawk pork chop with charred pineapple and blistered yellow chile, also served with rice and beans.

During our visit, we checked out its new Mariscos Bar, where guests can savor delicious oysters and fresh fish prepared at the sushi-style bar. We also met husband and wife proprietors, Sandy DiCicco and Brian Bonar.

“We invested $1.3 million into the restaurant. Improvements included the Mariscos Bar, Translucent Cocktail Bar, tables, chairs, flooring, chandelier lighting, bathroom makeovers, and remodeled 500 square foot outdoor patio,” the couple said.

Sandy, who loves spicy food, always has a batch of secret hot salsa that daring guests can request.

From 3 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, they offer a happy hour with wine

Was your child misdiagnosed with ADHD?

In general, children with ADHD exhibit inattention, distractibility, and hyperactivity in ANY environment.

Children with APD, on the other hand, usually don’t have difficulty focusing and paying attention in a quiet space.

Also, children with APD are exquisitely sensitive to sound (many times).

The RED FLAGS WITH APD are: genetic predisposition (learning issues run in the family), or chronic middle ear infections. Did you know 3 - 5 students in every classroom have APD?

The thing is that OUTWARDLY ADHD AND

APD LOOK REMARKABLY SIMILAR:

APD

• Seems to “tune out” due to not understanding what’s being said

• Seems forgetful (due to not understanding initial message)

• Struggles to follow conversations and respond to spoken questions due to inability to process auditory stimuli

ADHD

• Seems “tuned out” due to inattention

• Seems forgetful due to disorganization

• Struggles to focus during

conversations and respond to spoken questions due to inattention

When a child is “zoning out” the first thing that comes to mind is that they are ADHD. Unless APD is also considered in a differential diagnosis (which includes the Audiologist) it could be a MISDIAGNOSIS.

Ask yourself how else an overwhelmed auditory system can take a break? Want to at least SCREEN your student to rule out Auditory Processing Deficit as the issue?

for 20-30% of our longevity. That means 70-80% is determined by lifestyle choices. How we live can have an extraordinary impact on how long we live!

questions, and explore important truths every person over 65 should know about living to be 100, or even beyond! Topics include:

• Living with purpose

In this day and age, the prospect of living into our 80’s or 90’s, or even to 100 and beyond, is a real possibility. People are living longer.

Recent data indicates that 1 in 5,000 people is a centenarian, and that the number of centenarians living in the US today is up 10,000 from 2016. 85% of centenarians are women. The number of people still living at age 100 has doubled since 1990’s.

Equally interesting is research that suggests genetic makeup only accounts

For many of us, this is exciting news! Reaching the age of 100 may not have been a rite of passage we’ve considered, but the reality is, it could happen. Which then begs the question: how many of us have planned for this eventuality? Have we thought about how we can reach these milestones in physical and financial health and comfort?

On Thursday, May 11, our ongoing Senior Living Education Series. Add years to your life and life to your years. Join us as we discuss pros and cons, answer your

• Making the most of our lives, whatever our age

• Living for today and planning for tomorrow.

• Health, health care, fitness, and relationships… the importance of social connections.

Of course, living to an advanced age doesn’t involve quick fixes, special vitamins, or miraculous fountains of youth. There are no guarantees. But there are steps we can take that can help us live a longer life – a healthy and full life – maybe even to age 80, 90, 100. And that’s something to celebrate!

How collaborative thinking fosters community engagement

Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” At The Rhoades School, our students learn that collaboration is not just about achieving personal success, but also about contributing to the success of others and making a positive impact on their community and the world. As a school designed for and dedicated to serving bright, high-achieving students, we focus on teaching children how to think, not what to think.

So, what constitutes collaboration and how can we better collaborate? Collaboration requires listening, considering alternatives, being open to constructive feedback, and embracing others’ ideas. Collaborative thinking fosters a sense of community and mutual respect not just among our students, but also the teachers, staff, and families.

Real-world examples of collaboration are all around us. One example of how we foster collaborative thinking at The Rhoades School is through our Apple Distinguished School program, where effective practices are shared with the broader education community, particularly those working in

Living To 100: A

gifted education. Through the use of Apple technology, The Rhoades School communicates and collaborates with other gifted schools to develop innovative curriculum and instructional practices. It also connects our Rhoades School students with other students and experts in professional fields.

A leader in gifted education, The Rhoades School is a community of collaborative, creative, and curious learners and a center for continuous improvement and innovative practices.

Here are three tips to foster collaborative thinking (in and out of the classroom):

• Establish Clear Communication Channels: To foster collaborative thinking, it's crucial to establish clear communication channels. This means that everyone involved should have a clear understanding of the expectations and the tools that will be used to facilitate communication. This can include virtual collaboration platforms, messaging apps, email, video conferencing, or any other tool that helps facilitate communication.

• Encourage Diverse Perspectives: Collaborative thinking is most effective when everyone involved brings their unique perspec-

tives to the table. Encourage people to share their ideas and opinions openly, and to actively listen to others. It's also essential to recognize that everyone has different strengths and weaknesses, and that diverse perspectives can help identify potential solutions to problems that might not have been considered otherwise.

• Foster a Positive and Supportive Environment: Finally, it's important to create a positive and supportive environment. Encourage people to build relationships with each other and to seek out opportunities to support one another. Recognize and celebrate the contributions of each person, and encourage everyone to work towards a shared goal. By creating a positive and supportive environment, you can help ensure that everyone is motivated to contribute their best thinking towards the group's efforts.

Ultimately, collaborative thinking facilitates more successful outcomes and productive contributions for all involved. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but each day we all have a choice on how to engage with others—sometimes two heads, or three or four, are better than one.

Encinitas adds more funds to rail crossing, quiet zone

— The Encinitas City Council on Wednesday discussed the city's operating and capital improvement budgets for the fiscal year 2023-24, allocating funding for a number of projects, including additional funds for Leucadia's at-grade rail crossing and a designated "quiet zone."

In an original strategy session on March 15, the council created a framework for the following goals: housing solutions for the homeless and unhoused, railroad crossings and quiet zones, prioritizing streetscape elements, safe routes to schools, expanding habitat stewardship programs, and working toward 100% affordable housing.

After a presentation on various projects, such as sewer and road improvements, the City Council reviewed the general fund's remaining $4.11 million

for unassigned capital improvement projects.

Council approved $900,000 for ADA curb ramps, innovative bike lanes, safer routes to school (bike lanes, sidewalks, traffic safety, general mobility)

and storm drain repairs that have deteriorated due to this winter's historic rainfall.

City Manager Pam Antil then recommended the approval of 14 other projects, including e-bike safety

training, Leucadia at-grade crossing design and quiet zone, all of which the council approved for $2.6 million.

Both the at-grade crossing and quiet zone are in the early stages of development. In April 2022, the Encinitas City Council endorsed a proposal to allocate funding to the design and engineering of a designated quiet zone — no train horn — from approximately Leucadia Boulevard in the south to the city’s northern border with Carlsbad.

In January, the city proposed two at-grade rail crossings located between La Costa Avenue and Leucadia Boulevard. The northern railroad crossing is close to the pedestrian crossing at Grandview Street and Coast Highway 101, connecting to Vulcan Avenue on the east side of the tracks between Coral Cove Way and Hillcrest Drive.

The southern location is proposed at the Phoebe Street and Coast Highway intersection, connecting

Glaucus and Jason streets.

The council then unanimously approved $240,000 for the annual paving project for roads in poor condition, with a focus on the streets of Rodney Avenue, Turner Avenue, and Shields Avenue, and $331,000 for a design of a pedestrian path running from Vulcan Avenue to La Costa.

The pedestrian path may need more money, according to Antil. City staff will return at mid-session review and get final approval in June.

“I think this is overall one of the tighter budgets we’ve had in a few years,” Councilmember Bruce Ehlers said. “I think we’ve been spending quite a bit of money, and if we look at the unassigned money remaining money, it’s tighter than usual.”

Community Grant Program Applications

The council heard from multiple city organizations hoping to get grant funding or additional funds.

The city issued a total of $141,122 in grant funds to various applicants, with only five groups disqualified. Council members will then each decide where to donate portions of the remaining $8,878 in available grant funds.

Council members with seniority (Mayor Tony Kranz and Deputy Mayor Joy Lyndes) were given $1,776, while the remaining council members (Ehlers, Councilmember Kellie Hinze and Councilmember Allison Blackwell) received $1,775 each to allocate to groups of their choice.

Kranz gave $592 each to the Mission Edge San Diego Organization for Bro-Am Beach Fest, North Shore Symphony for Presentation of a Concert Se-

ries in Encinitas, and San Dieguito Heritage Museum for a mural representing historical contributions of Latino Farm Workers.

Lyndes equally halved her contribution to Cardiff 101 Mainstreet for the Cardiff Farmers Market and Encinitas Friends of the Arts for event promotion and coordination.

Ehlers allocated $808 to North Shore Symphony and $807 to San Dieguito Heritage Museum. Hinze gave to five different organizations: The San Dieguito Academy's Drug-Free Youth Study Buddy program ($355), Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito for Operation School Bell Clothing Children ($356), Campana Studios for Gallery Art Shows at Perspective Space ($355), Cardiff 101 Mainstreet ($355), and San Dieguito Heritage Museum ($355).

Blackwell gave $592 to Coastal Roots Farm for its organic food distribution program, $591 to Mission Edge San Diego and $591 to Northshore Symphony.

Many of the organizations that applied for grants were centered on providing services to youth. Several council members agreed youth organizations should have separate opportunities to receive more funding.

“I would like to be able to see if we could evaluate some of these programs' grant applications for those that directly affect youth,” Mayor Kranz said. “We’ve got a lot of stuff that goes in here that is specifically focused on youth, and I think our sales tax for cannabis products should be focused on the diversionary effort that we have for our young people to keep them from hanging out back on the block and causing trouble.”

The city of Oceanside is considering building two new gymnasiums at existing municipal parks to meet the growing local demand for more recreational opportunities.

During the council's April 19 meeting, Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim and Councilmember Peter Weiss requested staff provide cost estimates for new gymnasiums at Joe Balderrama Park in the city’s Eastside Capistrano neighborhood, and John Landes Park, located in Oceanside’s Tri-City neighborhood.

“It’s well known that the city of Oceanside could use more resources and more places to participate in all types of recreational activities, whether it’s in fields or gymnasiums,” Keim said, who traveled to Washington D.C. seeking federal funds to establish recreational amenities.

“If we could add at least two more gyms, one west and one east, that would give kids more opportunities,” Keim said.

According to Keim, the idea is to outline two “shovel-ready” projects to bring to legislators with requests for specific funding.

Keim said the city was one of the few in the state to receive state funding for its beachfront improvements project because it was shovel-ready at the time of the request.

Mayor Esther Sanchez, who voted in support of the John Landes Park decision, said the city recently received nearly $1.8 million to create a master plan for John Landes Park.

Sanchez, who lives within 500 feet of Joe Balderrama Park, recused herself from that portion of the council's decision.

Oceanside is experiencing a citywide shortage of multi-use sports fields and gymnasiums. Councilmember Eric Joyce said the city is approximately 1.4 gyms short of the goals outlined in the city's Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Donal Yasukochi, a local basketball coach who runs programs at the Melba Bishop Recreation Center, voiced his support for building the new gymnasiums but said the facilities should be large enough to accommodate a multitude of sports with plenty of parking.

“I think it needs to be a huge facility,” Yasukochi said.

Joyce, a former Oceanside Unified School District trustee who currently serves as a liaison between the district and the council, said the district’s plan is to rebuild the Jefferson Middle School gym into a “full-sized gym.”

If the city can work out an agreement to use the school’s new facility, Joyce said that could help to balance any size issues with the proposed park gyms.

REGION

In celebration of Law Week, the San Diego County Bar Association is giving students around the county a chance to honor the rule of law and send a message about society through works of art.

Law Week is a week of celebratory events leading up to Law Day on May 1. Originally proclaimed in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the day is set aside to celebrate the legal process that was built to protect liberties, strive to uphold justice, and contribute to American freedoms.

The San Diego County Bar Association hosts events every year leading up to Law Day, including the student Law Week Poster and Video Contest. This year’s theme is “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration,” emphasizing the importance of collaboration to overcome differences, resolve disputes, and preserve democracy and republic.

The contest gives kindergarten through 12thgrade students in San Diego and Imperial counties a chance to create a piece of art related to the given topic, competing for prize money and the opportunity for their work to be on display.

Each student has until April 28 to submit either a poster, video or one of reach.

The posters must consist of original artwork on 22-inch by 22-inch paper. Any grade student can participate in the poster contest.

Videos must be between thirty seconds to two minutes in length, featuring all original work and no copyrighted material. For videos, students must be in grades 6 through 12 to participate.

Superior Court judges and attorneys judge the contest each year.

With over a couple of hundred entries, they are looking for something that catches their eyes.

“What we look for is just creativity, how they

perceive the theme, which one has a great message or just in general is very artistic,” said Michelle Chavez, director of public services at the county Bar Association.

Winners are chosen in first, second, third, and honorable mention tiers. Those who get selected get to attend a luncheon to honor them.

“We get some beautiful things in, and we have actual superior court judges and attorneys vote on first, second, and third,” Chavez said. “Those winners are given cash prizes and featured in our magazine and celebrated at our Law Week luncheon, where the first-place winner gets recognized.”

“Along with being recognized at the luncheon, this year, the winning posters will go in the juvenile court in one of our judges’ courtrooms, and the winning first-place student gets to get their class a pizza party.”

The luncheon, formally known as the Annual Awards Ceremony and Celebration of Community Service, on May 18 is not only to celebrate the students who make it in the top three contests. But it is also to celebrate the contributions and commitment of distinguished individuals and organizations serving the San Di-

ego legal community and the public.

Some categories being honored include the outstanding attorney awarded to Deputy District Attorney James Koerber, the outstanding jurist award awarded to Honorable Kenneth So, the communi-

ty service award awarded to Senior Appellate Attorney Mytili Bala, and many more.

The award ceremony is being hosted at the Gaslamp Westin San Diego from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. to honor the many who have served the community.

This Mother’s Day, give the gift of a fruit tree

he smell of cherry blossoms, the taste of a fresh peach, the sound of white pear blossoms falling to the ground. These are the harbingers of springtime in California.

And with Mother’s Day approaching, I thought the perfect gift for a mom who gardens, or one who is a “newbie” in her first garden,

When consulting with my favorite local expert, Stephen Froess, manager at Anderson’s La Costa Nursery in Encinitas, I learned that his tree recommendations for Mom’s garden would be two easy-to-grow trees — the fig and pomegranate.

“Because these trees transplant easily and grow quickly, we recommend either for the ‘newbie’ gardener,” he said. “They don’t require much pruning, are relatively free of disease and insect problems and produce fruit the first year.”

Stephen advises getting the largest specimen available, in 15-gallon pots, of both the fig and pomegran-

“One word of caution when planting a fig tree,” he added, “would be that since it is in the ficus family, the roots grow very quickly, and should not be planted near a house or garage because they could disrupt water systems.”

The second caution is that if you plant a fig tree, you have to like to eat figs! Last fall, I attended a garden club meeting and three gardeners brought bowls of figs to share.

Because they ripen so quickly, figs must be used immediately, such as in a fig jam. Excellent recipes for fig jam, hundreds of fruit jams and jellies can be found in “The Ball Book of Canning and Preserving.”

As for pomegranates, Stephen’s recommends that you “buy the biggest one you can afford, and it will produce fruit the first year. Since they will end up looking more like a large shrub than a tall tree, I recommend buying a two-trunk specimen. You can train it to splay outward with its branches reaching horizontally.”

This small, showy tree from Iran grows to 15-20 feet tall though it is often pruned to half the size. After the showy red flowers appear in spring, the 5-inchwide fruits ripen in the fall.

The fruit has a multitude of uses, including being simply cut into quarters as

a snack or cut in half and processed in a high power juicer. It is now a favorite ingredient in many restaurant salads and desserts.

PRETTY AS A PEACH

One of my neighbors in Vista, Bustami Pollard, has remodeled a rambling ranch home and started a small orchard and extensive raised beds for vegetables and berries. His favorite and most productive fruit tree is a peach tree that he purchased two years ago and that produces over 100

peaches during the summer season.

I asked Bustami his secret to producing sweet fruit and he said: “It all depends on the sun, the soil and good fertilizer. Our only issue at the end of the season is an attack of a bright green beetle that destroys most of the fully ripened fruit at the end of the season.”

I consulted Stephen, my horticultural expert at Anderson’s, and he diagnosed the problem immediately.

“The bright green fig beetle waits patiently until the peaches are overripe and

consumes all the fruit in a few days.

“The best prevention is to pick the last of the ripe peach crop just as the harvest is ending.”

The only method of control is not by applying pesticide but keeping an eye out at the time the larvae are forming in the leaf litter. Be certain to rake and remove all the litter and place it in garbage bags. This is a type of leaf litter you definitely do not want to add to compost since it will spread to other fruit trees.

BERRIES, BERRIES

Many North County gardeners love to grow blueberries and strawberries, which are now available at all garden centers.

Armstrong Garden Center, at 5702 Paseo Del Norte in Carlsbad, has a large variety of the blue fruit that, if planted in May, will produce fruit from midspring throughout the summer season.

When purchasing blueberries it is recommended to always plant at least two varieties near each other so they will cross pollinate. Be sure to ask the garden staff for planting and soil recommendations when planting all fruit trees and berries.

Blueberries are also available at Anderson’s La Costa Nursery, 400 La Costa Ave., Encinitas, (760) 7533153, and Green Thumb Nursery, 1019 W. San Marcos Blvd., San Marcos, (760) 903-5600.

DON’T FORGET THE CARD!

A simple remembrance, but true. I still have cards that my now 37-year-old son made me for Mother’s Day years ago. That childlike handwriting and special greeting, “ I LOVE YOU MOM!” still brings tears to my eyes! Handmade or store bought, the card is the perfect final touch.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)

CITY OF ENCINITAS

PROFESSIONAL DESIGN SERVICES FOR THE HSIP CYCLE 10

CITYWIDE LEADING PEDESTRIAN INTERVALS PROJECT

ENG RFP 23-02, CITY PROJECT NO. CS22B, PROJECT NO. HSIPSL-5446 (036)

Date Issued: April 12, 2023

Questions Due: May 3, 2023, 5:00 PM

Proposals Due: May 10, 2023, 2:00 PM

The City is seeking proposals for design services for the HSIP Cycle 10 Citywide Leading Pedestrian Intervals Project. This Project represents a state-funded project under the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Cycle 10 which aims to enhance safety at signalized locations in implementing Lead Pedestrian Interval (LPI) operations at 48 intersections throughout the City of Encinitas. The use of LPI at these locations intends to provide an advance walk interval for pedestrians to enter the intersection ahead of turning vehicles and establish a presence in the crosswalk with greater visibility to motorists. This signal operation has a potential of providing safety bene ts which would increase visibility of crossing pedestrians, help reduce con icts between pedestrians and vehicles, increase likelihood of motorists yielding to pedestrians, and help enhance safety for pedestrians who may be slow to start into the intersection.

Tra c signal controllers will be upgraded to run the LPI operations, and all timing sheets will be updated to accommodate the increased cycle times. To further help enhance intersection safety, high visibility crosswalks will be included to enhance pedestrian crossing visibility. The City has implemented countdown pedestrian heads as funding for upgrades has been available and the project will include these upgrades to standardize crossings and further enhance safety for pedestrians. New bicycle detection loops are included to prevent bicyclists from entering the intersections without the appropriate call. This will increase safety for bicyclists and reduce collisions and con icts between motorists and pedestrians. The implementation of LPIs along with these improvements will increase pedestrian and bicycle crossing safety at signalized intersections throughout the City of Encinitas.

Proposals must be submitted electronically no later than 2:00 p.m. on May 10, 2023. Proposals must be submitted electronically via the PlanetBids system used to download the RFP. The maximum le size for submittal is 50 megabytes, and the le type shall be Portable Document Format (PDF). The electronic system will close submissions exactly at the date and time set forth in the RFP or as changed by addenda.

OBTAINING RFP DOCUMENTS: This Request for Proposal (RFP) and related documents are posted on PlanetBids (http://www.encinitasca.gov/bids). All project correspondence will be posted on the PlanetBids website. It is the responsibility of Proposers to check the website regularly for updates, clari cations, and any RFP addenda. To submit a proposal, you must be registered with the City of Encinitas as a vendor. You can register as a vendor at the following website: (http://www.encinitasca.gov/bids) under the “New Vendor Registration” link. 04/21/2023, 04/28/2023 CN 27544

Award-winning ‘TREE DOCTOR’ uses special techniques for exceptional results

Since 1985, Russell Bowman has been delighting residents of San Diego County with his plant and tree expertise.

So, it’s no wonder Bowman Plant & Tree Care Specialists have been named the San Diego Union-Tribune Community Press’ “Best of North County” voters’ poll for tree and plant care for a 2nd year in a row!

He is lovingly referred to as the San Diego “tree doctor extraordinaire” by his clients, Bowman is known for transforming sickly trees and gardens into Disneyesque wonderlands.

Using his own proprietary blend of organic biological nutrition, Bowman feeds plants at night — a technique he picked up during his time as a horticulturist at Disneyland.

“When you feed plants at night, they have enough time to absorb the nutrition, before it is degraded by the sun’s rays,” he said. “That’s why, when most people are winding down their days, eating dinner, and going to bed, we are out feeding plants and trees.”

He’s done more than just care for sick plants and trees, he’s revolutionized both residential and commercial properties by the use of his organic fertilizer tanks that inject his magical formula through your irrigation systems.

life’s possibilities.

No matter the members’ economic or social standing, the clubs are a haven where kids can be kids and that includes those who are seeking the right way.

“At the end of the day, it’s the chance to be able to mentor or influence a young child and that is priceless,” Chad said. “Sometimes at a young age, they are looking for someone to follow.”

If they get their marching orders from Chad, 49, they should consider themselves fortunate. This former San Diego State and Carlsbad High basketball player is high on energy and low on excuses. His get-itdone attitude will not only leak over to those with the innocence of a child, but also to the adults looking to shape someone’s path.

Those lucky enough to watch Chad play recall that he never took a minute off on the court, and that’s true off it as well.

“He was such a winner as a basketball player because he always gave it his all,” Greg, 74, said. “His heart and will were always on display. He will take that to the organization as well.”

That support to our community’s youth is integral. Thankfully, Chad went from hawking medical equipment to support

This program reduces the households use of water overall by 30%.

In a very short time, this program pays back through reduced water bills.

“When you give your body proper nutrition, it affects your overall health and boosts your immunity, so you don’t get sick. The same is true for plants and trees.” Bowman feeds complete “nutrition delivery biology” derived from earth-

worm castings to replenish the missing healthy soil biology.

This works with a client’s current irrigation system so that each time the landscaping is watered, the needed soil biology is replenished.

“This is the secret to keeping your property looking like a five-star resort.”

Russell is quick to point out that healthy plants and trees are also environmen-

tally friendly. A healthy plant will be more efficient at photosynthesizing sunlight into oxygen and the healthy soil/compost helps bring down uses far less water.

He donates his time and expertise for the trees for the Point Loma Association and gardens at the Rock Church in Point Loma, Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, the YMCA, Barnes Tennis Center, Chili’s Restaurants, Stone Brewery in Escondido, and San Diego Botanic Garden.

He also served with the San Diego Rose Society in Balboa Park for 12 years.

“My calling is to beautify the earth, making trees and plants healthy,” The Master Gardener taught me everything I know. I’ve learned that when you love something, it’s not something you have to do; it’s something you want to do.”

To learn more about Bowman and his services, please contact Russell at 858-499-9417.

He provides tree and plant nutritional care as well as ongoing routine garden maintenance.

said. “But there is so much more, with great programs and field trips. And if a kid just needs encouragement or a friend, they can just show up.”

If so, they’ll likely run into one of the Nelsons and that includes Barbi Nelson, Chad’s mother and Greg’s wife. For 38 years she ran the group’s gala, which raised funds and awareness of the good vibes going on at both branches.

While Barbi has stepped down from her role, like all the Nelsons, she always willing to step up to help kids.

That’s any kid, regardless of whether they can afford the membership fees. No one is turned away, with the club offering scholarships along with love and support.

The Nelsons aren’t alone in distributing pats on the backs. There’s also Abby Snyder and Nicole Bianchini, the clubhouse directors at the Village and Bressi Ranch locations, respectively.

That’s a bit of a stretch, but not much.

Local tribes first in US with Narcan vending machines

Pala Band faces opioid crisis on sovereign land

PALA

In a first for San Diego County and sovereign lands across the United States, vending machines offering free Naloxone kits have been implemented on the sovereign land of three local native tribes in hopes of preventing opioid-related deaths.

Naloxone, or Narcan, is a fast-acting nasal spray that can stop fentanyl or other opioid-related overdoses.

After nearly a year of communication between tribal dignitaries and the Harm Reduction Coalition of San Diego County, the Pala Band of Mission Indians became home to the first Naloxone vending machine on sovereign land in the United States on April 13.

“It’s about prevention, and we’ll be saving peoples lives in the future,” said Pala Chairman Robert Smith. “It’s a first step. I hope there will be more to follow … hopefully we can make a difference in our community and communities like ours.”

After one was installed at the Pala Fire Station, additional machines were brought in the following weeks to two other tribes

in San Diego County — the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians in Valley Center at the fire station and the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians at the Yaytaanak Wellness Center in Alpine.

These machines on native land are the latest established by the Harm Reduction Coalition, which has been working for the past year to expand Nalox-

one access throughout the county.

Three other machines have been set up at the McAlister Institute in Chula Vista and THE CIRCLE by Epiphany and El Dorado, both in San Diego.

Coalition founder and CEO Tara Stamos-Buesig said her team worked to respect and listen to the needs of tribal governments

throughout the process and understand how historical interactions with the county government have been harmful.

The engagement and leadership of people like Smith also helped to move the process forward and bring other tribes on board.

“Pala took the lead because Chair Smith has always been one to jump on

board and say, I want to do this thing for my people; let me do this thing for my people.’ Many reservations follow his lead, so we worked to get that going on Pala first,” Stamos-Buesig said.

Like many tribes, the Pala, whose approximately 1,000 members mostly live on the reservation near Palomar Mountain, has

not been spared from the fast-spreading fire of fentanyl in recent years. Smith said the need for action became apparent in 2016 when sixteen tribal members died from opioid-related overdoses.

“That was a real eye-opener. I told the tribal council we need to do

something,” Smith said.

Naloxone has become a powerful tool in fighting against the opioid epidemic, especially when paired with the availability of fentanyl testing strips and community education.

As part of the partnership with the coalition, the Pala Tribe’s leadership recently went through fentanyl awareness training, and several tribal buildings are equipped with their own Naloxone kits.

On the Rincon reservation, Chairman Bo Mazzetti said they are working with the coalition to gather data on the effectiveness of this new resource.

“Having accessibility can help save a life and counter the effects of this deadly drug,” Mazzetti said. “We are also working with the coalition to help collect information and data on outcomes using the machine’s Narcan. We strongly believe this is a step in the right direction, and more should be done to help address this issue.”

Smith said that while he has fielded many questions from people about the machines, most have been receptive.

He hopes more people, especially those around or who know someone using drugs, can be equipped with the knowledge and resources to save a life.

“You never know, there could be an instance where it could save somebody’s life. Somebody could walk

into our library, and anything could happen,” said Smith. “I’m a firm believer [that] anything educational is good.”

The vending machines were implemented at no cost to the tribes and were paid for by the county. To obtain Naloxone, individuals scan a QR code on the machine and are given a code to enter on the machine’s keypad after entering their birth date and other information.

A kit containing two Naloxone doses and instructions is then dispensed for free. There is no limit on how many times people

can use the machine.

Three other tribes in the county have since contacted the coalition about obtaining these machines, Stamos-Buesig said. Over time, she hopes these machines will help spread this life-saving medication further into the community and prevent more overdose deaths.

“Narcan is a tool that we keep, just like a CPR mask or an epipen. It will save a life and give someone a new opportunity. We should all be carrying it — it’s free, it’s accessible, and it has no adverse effects. You might be the first responder,” she said.

DEL MAR

— San Diego County has secured $100 million for railway projects in Del Mar, including replacing the San Dieguito Railway River Bridge, implementing new double tracking, and creating a new rail platform at the Fairgrounds, regional leaders announced Monday.

The sizable grant, awarded to the North County Transit District and the San Diego Association of Governments, is the largest in this year’s Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program cycle.

Both agencies can now jumpstart Phase II of the San Dieguito Bridge Replacement, Double Track and Special Events Platform Project along the LOSSAN (Los Angeles -San Diego-San Luis Obispo) corridor. Along with replacing the century-old wooden San Dieguito bridge, this phase will add around one mile of double track south of the river.

The new “special events” platform, located adjacent to the Fairgrounds’ west parking lot, is intended to provide increased transit to the Fair, horse races, and concerts. Leaders hope this will reduce traffic congestion around the Fairgrounds and offer a reliable mode of transit to special events.

“Replacement of this 107-year-old bridge is

critical to ensuring the region’s transportation network is resilient to the impacts of climate change and rising sea levels,” said NCTD Board Chair Jewel Edson. “Additionally, adding capacity-enhancing double-track in the area and a special events platform will increase NCTD COASTER and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner ridership.”

Regional leaders expressed their gratitude for the additional investments into the second-busiest rail corridor in the nation. Nora Vargas, chairwoman of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, noted that this award will help the region leverage future funding.

“I am thrilled that Gov. Newsom and the California State Transportation Agency are investing $100 million for infrastructure in our community,” Vargas said. “The San Dieguito

Double Track project is a priority for us, and it will bring safety and reliability to the entire LOSSAN corridor.”

Once completed, the project will provide 2.8 miles of continuous double tracking from Solana Beach south across the San Dieguito Lagoon.

SANDAG plans to fully double track the LOSSAN corridor by 2035, in hopes of creating faster and more frequent rail service and decreasing reliance on other forms of transit.

Legislators also shared their excitement about the grant:

“I am proud to support continued investment in the LOSSAN Corridor,” said Congressman Mike Levin (CA-49). “I will keep advocating for funding available from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to protect and enhance this vital transportation link.”

RAIN, WIND, AND FIRE... “The three menaces to any chimney, fireplace, or stove.”

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

Changes in the workplace might be daunting for some, but you love challenges and will do just fine with this one. Remember to work with facts, not rumors.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)

Just when you need some emotional reassurances, you find an almostforgotten, friendly gesture repaid in the most wonderful way. More good news follows.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You have a chance to restart a stalled personal relationship. Additionally, a workplace change bodes well for new opportunities, but you need more facts before you can act.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Talk to your longtime friends about why they’re not in sync with your new pal. You might learn some startling facts. Also, a difficult workplace situation eases.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) What seems to be a golden opportunity is, naturally, attractive to Leos. But be careful that it’s not just a lot of surface glitter. You need to ask more questions.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There are still some issues with getting decisions made on your workplace project. Talk to a supervisor about ways to break the impasse.

ANSWERS

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family matter could become more complicated and reach an apparent dead end. Don’t give up on trying to find a solution. Work patiently with everyone involved.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You’ll soon hear more about an offer that could change the direction of your career. Meanwhile, enjoy the newly positive on-the-job environment.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Expect a favorable reply to a workplace request. On the home front, a full explanation helps you sort out a long-standing personal problem.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A serious matter needs focused consideration. Watch that your sometimes capricious nature doesn’t create any unnecessary distractions.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You win added support for your determination to turn a bad situation into a good one. One new ally arrives from a most unexpected source.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Family and friends need to be told about a decision you want to make. Be prepared to offer a full explanation when asked. Hold nothing back.

BORN THIS WEEK: You can be a fighter and a lover. You are a natural leader with a strong sense of justice that makes people respect you.

OUSD gives additional $8.1M for Pablo Tac upgrades

— The Oceanside Unified School District is directing an additional $8.1 million in school facility bond funds to modernize the Pablo Tac School of the Arts.

School board members unanimously approved the extra funding after district staff’s recommendations at the April 18 board meeting.

Although the bidding and procurement process for the school’s modernization project has already concluded, the escalation of materials and labor costs drove bid proposals to be higher than previously budgeted.

In the spring of last

year, the district broke ground on construction of the new school facility, which merged San Luis Rey and Garrison elementary schools two years ago fol-

Vista ends 10 months of water-use restrictions

By Staff VISTA — After 10 months, the Vista Irrigation District board of directors voted unanimously on April 19 to declare an end to mandatory water-use restrictions thanks to improved water supply conditions statewide.

The return to Level 1, the city’s the least restrictive water-use conditions, is effective immediately.

The heightened conditions under Level 2, including limiting landscape watering to three days per week and 10 minutes per sprinkler station, are no longer in effect with the return to Level 1.

However, mandatory water-use efficiency practices, such as watering landscape in the early morning and evening hours, eliminating run-off, not using water to wash down paved surfaces and repairing leaks in a timely manner, remain in place.

The city’s return to the wtaer district’s least restrictive tier does not mean that long-term water supply challenges related to multi-year droughts in California have ended. However, significant rainfall throughout the state and snowfall in northern California this winter improved short-term water

supply conditions. The current water supply should be sufficient to meet the district’s water demands for the foreseeable future.

“We want to thank our customers for their water-saving efforts and ask them to continue using water efficiently,” said general manager Brett Hodgkiss.

“Continued water wise practices play an essential role in helping us manage our water supplies.”

The district’s action was taken in response to the Gov. Gavin Newsom’s March 24 executive order terminating a requirement that all urban water suppliers implement Level 2 of their Water Shortage Contingency plans.

The district declared a Level 2 condition in June 2022, and implemented stricter water-use efficiency practices and water conservation measures consistent with emergency regulations established by the State Water Resources Control Board.

The state board’s emergency regulations also prohibited irrigating non-functional turf at commercial, industrial and institutional properties.

lowing Garrison’s closure after sinkholes were found on campus.

The new Pablo Tac School of the Arts is located on the campus formerly

known as San Luis Rey Elementary.

The modernization project is funded by Proposition H, a bond measure approved by Oceanside voters in June 2008. The measure authorizes the school district to issue up to $195 million in general obligation bonds for school facility improvements.

In April 2020, the district authorized up to $25 million in Proposition H funds for the project. The additional $8.1 million will come from the bond measure, ESSER III, and the general fund.

“The new price tag is $33 million,” said OUSD Communications Director

Donald Bendz via email.

In 2021, the school board voted to rename the school after Pablo Tac, a Luiseño or Payómkawichum (People of the West) indigenous scholar whose writings were a primary source of the Luiseno language and culture up until the 20th century.

“His contribution for preserving language and the translation of his native language fits in really well with the idea that language is a big piece of the programming,” said Councilmember Eric Joyce, then serving as a trustee when the school board voted to approve the name change in June 2021.

The board did not hold any discussion when approving the additional $8.1 million in funds for the modernization project on April 18.

The plan is to build a new administration building with a health office and conference room, a new stage with expanded entry and exit points and height, 14 new modular classrooms including space for Transitional Kindergarten, several outdoor additions including a shaded eating area, gathering space and learning spaces, and unique community access to school fields.

Construction began last year and is expected to finish in the fall of 2025.

Creme de la Weird

The Mondaiji Con Cafe Daku (loosely translated: Problem Child Concept Cafe) in Sapporo, Japan, was forced to fire one of its waitresses in April after she was discovered to be adding her own blood to cocktails, the Daily Mail reported.

The cafe owner called her actions “absolutely not acceptable” and said the establishment would close while every drinking glass was replaced.

“We will hire a contractor to clean the store, change glasses and dispose of alcoholic beverages that may have been contaminated,” he said. He called her actions “part-time job terrorism.” A local doctor said anyone who had patronized the cafe should visit a doc-

tor and have a blood test. [Daily Mail, 4/13/2023]

It's a Mystery

Over the last several months, Don Powell and his wife, Nancy, have been puzzling over uninvited inhabitants of their fancy mailbox in Orchard Lake, Michigan.

USA Today reported that in August 2022, two small dolls, a miniature couch and a small table appeared in the mailbox, which is custom-built to resemble the Powells’ home, with windows and a solar-powered interior light that comes on at night.

The dolls were accompanied by a note: “We’ve decided to live here. Mary and Shelley.” Powell thought a neighbor might be spoofing him, but after exhaustive investigatory work, he’s no closer to knowing the source of the figures.

Over time, the home gained a four-poster bed, a dog, a rug and art for the wall. “The whole thing got rather whimsical,” Powell said. At Halloween, Mary and Shelley were replaced by two skeleton dolls dressed in black, and at Christmas, tiny, wrapped gifts appeared.

Now, Powell is thinking of writing a children's book about the mailbox mystery. “I think it creates a novel story,” he said. [USA Today, 4/13/2023]

In fact, many cars stopped along the highway to grab the loot. When the Oregon State Police tracked down the source, it was Colin Davis McCarthy, who told them he’d been throwing the money out of his car to “bless others.” He said he thought he’d dispersed around $200,000.

The OSP later revealed that McCarthy’s family had been in touch; he had depleted a shared family bank account for his Robin Hood moment. [Fox News, 4/14/2023]

The charges came after school administrators learned Footman was allegedly hosting violent brawls between students in her classroom.

Naturally, she set down rules: no recordings, and no pulling hair. No screaming (draws attention). Fights must be limited to 30 seconds each.

However, several sixthgrade girls alerted administrators, and video turned up showing Footman at her desk while students fought each other. She's scheduled for arraignment in May. [NY Post, 4/10/2023]

News Sounds Like a Joke Northern Railway in England has made a specific appeal to its riders: Please stop watching porn on the train. The Mirror reported that Northern provides “Friendly Wi-fi,” which meets (apparently the bare) minimum filtering standards.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer, said people should remember that “some content is not suitable for everyone to see or hear -- particularly children.” While the company understands that the ride may be “the first opportunity to view content,” commuters should “wait until you get home.” [Mirror, 4/14/2023]

Anthony Guglielmi, chief of communications for the Secret Service, told CNN on April 18 that a toddler was able to breach the fence around the White House, setting off security alarms.

The “curious young visitor" crawled through the fence posts on the north side and was quickly apprehended by Secret Service police officers, who reunited him with his par-

His good deed turned out to be an “oops” moment, though, according to the Associated Press. The “pothole” was actually a utility trench that had been temporarily filled by Southern California Gas Co. and was set to be fixed permanently later.

SoCal Gas said rain had delayed the permanent paving. The Terminator tweeted, “Teamwork. Happy to help speed this up.” [Associated Press, 4/14/2023]

Questionable Judgment

Parents of students at Desert Hills Middle School in Kennewick, Washington, are questioning the thinking behind a school assembly activity that took place before spring break, YakTriNews reported.

The game involved a large piece of clear plexiglass with stripes of whipped cream sprayed on both sides; teams of students and staff competed to see who could lick the cream off both sides at the same time, making it appear as if the two people were kissing.

District Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce sent a letter to parents on April 12, which assured them that “The content of a video being shared on social media is highly concerning” and the activity “does not reflect the high standards we hold for our staff members.” An investigation is underway.

Michael: Yes, we have a full kitchen with great food.

Michael: I love what I do. I don’t look at it as work. We love what we are doing here. We love making the beer, we love the process, and we love the community. And we love the smile on people’s faces after they taste our beer.
