Encinitas advances rental cap

Council favors 3% cap on city’s vacation rentals
By Stephen Wyer
ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council recently voted in favor of capping the number of city-issued permits for non-hosted, short-term rental properties and requiring a minimum of 200 feet between existing vacation rentals, among other proposed regulations. In a 4-0 vote at a meeting last Wednesday — Councilmember Kellie Hinze recused herself from the vote because her family owns a vacation rental — city leaders endorsed a 3% citywide cap of short-term rentals and a 5% limit for qualifying units located west of Interstate 5. Among other changes, the council also voted to mandate that new short-term rentals be a minimum of 200 feet from existing short-term rentals (also called STRs or STVRs) in order to prevent an overconcentration in the community. Additionally, property owners would be required to renew their rental permits every three years instead of annually. The vote marks an important step in terms of policies that the city can use to balance the rights of property owners with the need to mitigate the negative effects of short-term rentals on surrounding neighborhoods, said Councilman Tony Kranz. “Our meetings over the last year have pretty clearly indicated that there are some problems with the STR properties in this community, so we took a look at what surrounding jurisdictions were doing and borrowed them and decided to update our ordinance, which hadn’t been updated in 15 years,” Kranz said. “I think we did a good job keeping in mind the conflicting interests at play here, one TURN TO RENTALS ON A3

Solana Beach, Fairgrounds tangle over gambling City lawsuit points to adverse effects of betting By Laura Place
SOLANA BEACH — As the Del Mar Fairgrounds looks ahead to a possible future of increased revenue from onsite sports betting, the neighboring city of Solana Beach has filed a lawsuit to stop it before it can begin. Back in September 2021, the 22nd District Agricultural Association, the board which manages the Fairgrounds, voted unanimously to make sports betting a permitted activity at its off-track wagering center, pending California voters’ approval of a new initiative allowing sports betting at private racetracks and tribal casinos statewide in November. Thirty U.S. states, as well as the District of

Columbia, have legalized sports betting in some form since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on state-authorized sports betting in 2018. The California initiative proposes a 10% tax on
all sports betting revenue from racetracks. While the Fairgrounds see sports betting as an enticing revenue source — particularly as factors including the devastating financial impacts of
COVID-19 make the future of horse racing uncertain — Solana Beach officials filed a suit on March 10 seeking to reverse the district’s September approval, arguing that it will bring adverse effects to
the environment and local community including increased traffic, noise, and air pollution. Specifically, the petition alleges that the 22nd DAA failed to conduct an environmental review before approving sports betting, therefore violating California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines. The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is also named as a defendant, due to their proposal to develop and operate a “first-class sportsbook” at the Fairgrounds by early 2023 if the ballot measure is approved. “The city is beneficially interested in the issuance of a peremptory writ of mandate by virtue of the fact that the city and its residents and visitors will be harmed by the adverse environmental consequences that will occur if the proposed project is TURN TO GAMBLING ON A11

of which is to make money and allow people to have accommodations for their visits to our coastlines, and the other is to have neighborhoods for people who want to have neighbors that don’t come and go every three days.” Kranz said the council has heard a lot of feedback from community members who are concerned both about the impacts of shortterm rentals on community character and rising property values. “Ultimately, single-family residential zoning is intended to be for permanent residents,” Kranz said. “As a city, we want less speculative acquisitions of properties for the purchases of turning these homes into STRs. It’s reasonable to establish a cap to say, ’Hey, we recognize that there’s some merit to having single-family homes as STRs but too many create impacts in neighborhoods that are detrimental to families in the vicinity.” Councilmember Joy Lyndes agreed, saying it was high time the city take control of the exploding vacation rental market and properly balance the interests of short-term rental owners and residents concerned about the effects of vacation rentals on their neighborhoods. “We want to protect our neighborhoods,” said Lyndes. “Our neighbors have told us that they have concerns and we want to improve the quality of life in the neighborhoods while providing people with opportunities to make a living. We want the right balance in providing fair opportunities for people whose business is STRs but to also make sure that we preserve the quality of life in neighborhoods.” The restrictions voted on Wednesday would likely not take effect until the middle of next year, and still have to undergo a lengthy regulatory process before final approval is secured. The Planning Commission will have to review and vote on the proposed changes this fall before heading back to the City Council for another vote. The approved proposal must then go to the

California Coastal Commission for authorization, likely sometime in early 2023. The only community exempt from the new proposed regulations is the Sea Bluffs community, which was historically developed specifically to accommodate vacation-style units. “We identified [Sea Bluffs] as a unique situation, its own category,” Lyndes said. “Sea Bluffs was… developed as a condo-like situation where it was specifically designed to be a beach and tennis club type of area, so its defined land use is different from other land uses, and we want to look into what we can do to deal with unique situations like that.” At Wednesday’s meeting, the council also addressed questions brought up by residents confused over some aspects of the city’s proposal. Some residents asked would the 200-ft. distance requirement between vacation rentals apply to existing property owners or only to new short-term rentals? And upon a homeowner’s death, is the next property owner eligible to inherit the permit? Council clarified that existing homeowners would be grandfathered into the new proposal, meaning that they would be exempted from the spacing requirement. Addressing the second issue, the council ultimately decided that vacation rental permits would be non-inheritable and nontransferable. A large number of va-
cation rental owners spoke up at Wednesday’s meeting against the proposed changes, arguing that the ordinances would infringe upon their personal property rights, curtail rental profits, and hurt home equities. John Wayne, a longtime Del Mar resident, said that he’s in the middle of purchasing a home in Cardiffby-the-Sea. He’s worried that with the new restrictions, he’ll be unable to use his home as a vacation rental as he had planned to do with the property. “I’m about to become a property owner here in Cardiff, and I’m buying this property with the understanding that for years it’s been a short-term rental,” Wayne said. “I’m hoping that I will have that opportunity because if I’m not able to have that opportunity it’s a financial loss for us.” Wayne also warned that any curtailing of the shortterm rental market would invariably have adverse effects on not only homeowners but tourism and local businesses as well. “Please take all these things into consideration, understanding that families love coming to this town,” Wayne said. “It’s a beautiful place to come have a beach day, bring your kids, not worry about the noise or the expense, and to be able to bring additional dollars into our community.” Mithu Sherin, a fiveyear Cardiff resident who recently moved to Florida, expressed similar concerns, as she and her husband are worried they’ll now be un-
able to rent their property for short durations of time. Sherin also argued the council’s proposal constituted government overreach into decisions reserved solely for property owners. “The City of Encinitas seems hell-bent on restricting property owners' rights to rent out their property,” Sherin wrote in a public comment. "I am opposed to a cap on short-term rental applications. Short-term rental permits would allow us this opportunity to keep our home and use it when not rented. A long-term rental situation, such as we had, does not enable us to easily visit family and friends. As we put a lot of money into purchasing our home, I feel it is our right to use it as we
see fit.” Earlier this year, the City of San Diego recently passed a similar ordinance capping non-hosted, wholehome units citywide at 1% of San Diego’s homes, which will limit nearly the entire city to about 5,364 shortterm vacation rentals. As previously reported in The Coast News, there are currently an estimated 12,300 short-term rentals currently in the city of San Diego, but roughly half of those units will lose their permits as a result of a lottery system. But unlike San Diego, Kranz said the city of Encinitas is currently well below its targeted 3% cap rate and likely won't affect newcomers to the city's short-term rental market. Some residents spoke up Wednesday in support of more vacation rental restrictions. Gary Greenwald said that six of the homes neighboring his own residence are short-term rental units
that tend to foster a significant amount of noise and disruption in the surrounding area. “Because some of these homes are large, they draw large groups,” Greenwald said. “The noise, music, traffic and number of people associated with these large groups significantly affect the quality of life in our neighborhood, especially with the overconcentration of STRs in our small immediate area.” Greenwald said he’s also concerned about investors acquiring vacation rentals and driving up local property prices. “Placing limits on the overall number of STRs will help preserve our community character and charm and help improve home affordability and availability for permanent residents and long-term renters,” Greenwald said. “With current home availability a serious problem, this is an important step.”

Superintendent’s remarks wrong, racist and ignorant
By Phan Anderson
s previously reported by this newspaper, the San Dieguito Union High School District is currently embroiled in controversy due to comments made by Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward. At a recent training session James-Ward attributed the educational success of Asian American students to the advantages of wealth. The remark provoked outrage among many families who reside in the District. Many SDUHSD parents thereafter attended a board meeting to speak out and call for her resignation. Afterwards, the District Board of Trustees voted 3-1 to place the superintendent on administrative leave, pending further action. As a SDUHSD parent residing in Carmel Valley, I’m sharing my view of the matter, so that others will know how hurtful and insulting James-Ward’s comments were — so wrong, so racist, and so ignorant. The superintendent was wrong, both factually and morally. She claimed that Asians do well in school because the district has “an influx of Asians from China, and the people who are able to make that journey are wealthy.” But my family, like many others in the community, came with little money and without knowledge of the English language. With hard work, we have overcome these economic and social barriers. Many parents who have spoken out had similar experiences. We are proud of our achievements, have taught our children to work hard, value education, and respect the traditions of family.
James-Ward’s description, a gross generalization, is wrong and insulting. Many Asians have encountered discrimination in America, so it is especially hurtful to have the person in charge of our children’s education be so dismissive of their accomplishments. Although James-Ward appears sensitive to racism (her comments came at a DEI workshop conducted by the district), her presumptions about Asian Americans are a clear expression of racism. If she were thinking as an educator, she’d try to understand what Asian American families are doing right, so that others could learn how to maximize their educational opportunities. Instead, she focused on her false and unsupported perspective that our students succeed in school because they come from rich China. James-Ward’s comments also reveal a profound ignorance of the Asian American community, a constituency which accounts for nearly one-third of the families in Area 5, which is represented on the Board by Trustee Julie Bronstein. The superintendent’s apologies appeared disingenuous — she didn’t accept responsibility, said her comments were taken out of context, tried to deflect blame and tried to depict herself as a victim. She claimed that the turnout and criticisms of speakers against her were orchestrated by the California Equal Rights Foundation, failing to recognize that they are genuine, sincere concerns. She is flat-out wrong. Myself and many other SDUHSD parents were moved to speak out by the offensive nature of her remarks.
And James-Ward still doesn’t get it. Recently, she admitted in an April 25 interview with KUSI, “I kept going back over what I said, I could not find anything wrong with what I said.” She claims the backlash against her is driven by certain trustees, that being placed on leave was retaliatory. In an April 24 interview with NBC, she states that she is being “publicly lynched.” This is ludicrous! Sadly, James-Ward ignores the voices of those she was hired to serve — the families of SDUHSD — many of whom she has grievously offended. Not only by her original remarks, but by her subsequent comments, in my opinion, she persists in her ignorance and continues to demonstrate that she is unfit to be superintendent. This episode demonstrates how harmful it is to divide people into racial and ethnic groups. All Americans should be treated as individuals. It is our natural right. “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race,” Chief Justice John Roberts once said. The concept of “face” is an important principle in many Asian cultures. In my opinion, JamesWard’s comments have damaged the face of the district and damaged the Asian community. She did this, but she can redeem herself and restore face to the district by resigning from her position. We need to learn from this experience and move forward, with a new superintendent. Phan Anderson is a Carmel Valley resident in the San Dieguito Union High School District.
n some parts of California, there is definitely a housing crunch: small supplies of homes for sale, prices that escalate even when population has apparently stabilized and high prices that exclude most Californians as buyers. But a massive, multimillion-unit shortage? Maybe not. At least, so suggests a scathing springtime report from the nonpartisan acting state auditor. “The (state) Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has made errors when completing its needs assessments because it does not sufficiently review and verify data it uses,” the report deadpanned. Maybe that’s why as he campaigned in 2018, Gov. Gavin Newsom insisted California would need 3.5 million new housing units within eight years just to keep up. That would have been more than 400,000 homes, condos and apartments every year, all supposedly getting snapped up as increased supply caused prices to fall. None of this has happened. Housing construction never has topped 110,000 units per year during Newsom’s tenure, and a good share of those stand vacant. Newsom’s administration now says California needs 1.8 million new homes by 2030, a huge drop in his needs assessment after less than four years. What happened to the other half of what Newsom said was needed? Maybe the need never existed. Those earlier numbers stemmed in part from expert estimates that California’s high growth would continue indefinitely. We now see that is not automatic. Fewer newcomers mean less need for new homes. But the auditor’s report suggests even the 1.8 million housing units Newsom now says are needed by 2030 may be a gross exaggeration. One look at all the vacancy signs on apartment buildings and condominiums in major cities informally suggests this. But HCD does not lower its estimates of need. The department’s regional need figures, in turn, produce threats of lawsuits from appointed state Attorney General Rob Bonta against city after city, demanding they grease development permits for hundreds of thousands of new units. The demand against Los Angeles, for example, is that it immediately OK about 250,000 new units. It’s as if Bonta has not seen the auditor’s report indicating the figures he uses
are flawed. If he hasn’t read it, he is incompetent. If he has, he is dishonest. How real are the numbers on which the estimates and the resulting legal threats rest? Here’s a bit more of what Auditor Michael S. Tilden reported in a dramatic document so far studiously ignored by politicians: “HCD does not have adequate review processes to ensure that its staff members accurately enter data that it uses in the needs assessments.” Which means leading state officials continually spout unsubstantiated, possibly phony, estimates of housing need. This should discredit any lawsuits Bonta threatens against cities. For the auditor’s finding means the state housing agency estimates have no proven basis. All this is vital to California’s future because the estimates are already forcing cities to approve much more housing than they need, reacting to lawsuit threats and the possible accompanying loss of millions in state grant money. That, in turn, could produce future slums, or at least thousands of future short-term rental and temporary corporate housing units. But it won’t help prospective homebuyers get into markets where the median price now tops $800,000, in part because construction of just one average California unit costs more than $500,000. The auditor in effect says that when Newsom and Bonta cite housing need figures, they essentially spread fake news. For sure, when the state bases policy on unreliable or imagined information, it can do great harm. Just that appears likely soon, as passage of laws like the densifying 2021 measures known as SB 9 and SB 10 rested completely on HCD’s unsound information. Far better would be for the state to concentrate instead on making housing out of converted office space vacated during the pandemic. That, at least, would not ruin any current neighborhoods. In short, California will suffer irreparable long-term harm if it keeps basing housing policy on false or unreliable information. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

Carlsbad’s city attorney set to retire By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Longtime City Attorney Celia Brewer has announced her plans to retire, according to an April 23 press release. Brewer, who has spent more than nine years as city attorney, informed the Carlsbad City Council of her decision, which follows her diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in 2019. She will remain with the city until July 31, according to Kristina Ray, the city’s director of community and engagement. According to the release, the council will address the issue in the coming weeks. “I am passionate about public service and have loved every one of my public agency jobs, with the City of Carlsbad being the capstone of my career,” Brewer said in the release. “I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on so many projects that directly benefit the community. But the time has come for me to focus on my own well-being, joining the thousands of other people with Parkinson’s who lead active, healthy lives every day.” Brewer began her public service career in Solana Beach, helping resolve issues related to the railroad tracks, improving public safety and city revitalization efforts. In 2007, Brewer joined the San Diego County Water Authority as assistant general counsel, developing ordinances that continue to serve as the foundation for water district conservation programs throughout San Diego County. “Celia’s contributions to the City of Carlsbad go far beyond her legal work,” said Mayor Matt Hall. “She has a unique talent in bringing disparate sides together to find common ground for the common good. Her accomplishments here and throughout the region have been transformative and will be enjoyed by residents for generations to come.” Brewer earned her juris doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law and a bachelor’s degree in urban studies and planning from UC San Diego. In addition to her work as a public lawyer, Brewer is the mother of three children, the youngest of whom is graduating from college this spring.
DEL MAR — After issuing multiple warnings to the North County Transit District not to move ahead with a fencing project on the Del Mar Bluffs, the California Coastal Commission has filed a lawsuit alleging the transit district has failed to meet state and local development requirements. Filed on Tuesday in San Diego County Superior Court, the suit seeks an injunction to stop the transit district as well as Exbon Development Inc., with whom the district approved a contract in January to construct the fencing, from executing the project until they complete an environmental analysis as required under the California Environmental Quality Act. NCTD is also accused in the suit of noncompliance with the Coastal Act by failing to obtain a coastal development permit from the city of Del Mar, and ignoring a cease and desist letter issued by the state commission on March 7. “As of the date of filing this complaint, defendants have intentionally and continually failed and

refused to comply with the Coastal Act, and NCTD remains in violation of the [cease and desist] order, despite the Coastal Commission’s attempts to work with defendants to bring them into compliance,” the complaint states. The embattled project involves plans for 3,723 linear feet of 4- to 6-foot fencing along the Del Mar bluffs beginning at the Coast Boulevard railroad crossing, with the stated goal of limiting trespassing and preventing deaths on the railroad. Local residents and
Trespassing on railroad tracks dangerous, illegal, NCTD says By City News Service
OCEANSIDE — The North County Transit District on Wednesday issued a reminder to the public that trespassing on railroad tracks is dangerous and illegal, and teams of San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies will conduct “focused trespasser mitigation enforcement” along the transit district’s railroad right-of-way. According to the NCTD, an average of 12 people die each year due to illegally crossing or walking on NCTD’s railroad tracks. According to a district statement, in addition to this tragic loss of life, trespasser incidents significantly impact the mental health of railroad employees and first responders and are disruptive to rail operations. Spring and summer typically see increased trespassing activity and incidents, particularly on weekends. The problem is further enhanced by the increased frequencies of Coaster service during warmer months. “Crossing the railroad tracks is dangerous and illegal,” NCTD Executive Director Matthew Tucker said. “Enforcement of trespassing laws is intended to deter unsafe and illegal crossings and increase
public awareness about the dangers of crossing the tracks.” The agency uses a combination of education, enforcement and engineering to reduce trespassing risk. The transit district has requested the support of all cities in its service area to help educate members of the community and visitors about the dangers of railroad trespassing and its enforcement measures. Deputies patrol the train tracks on four-wheel vehicles and focus on areas that have experienced the most trespassing incidents. They may issue warnings and/or citations. Citations include fines that could range from $50 to $400, plus court costs.
officials concerned about the instability of the bluffs and the project’s interference with coastal access have come out in strong opposition, specifically regarding plans to place fencing along the upper bluffs trails from 9th to 4th streets. Local group Friends of the Del Mar Bluffs also filed their own suit against NCTD on March 21, accusing the district of disregarding local and state coastal development laws. Transit district officials, however, have insist-
ed they have sole authority over the project since it involves the railway, and are therefore exempt from the Coastal Act and California Environmental Quality Act. The district filed two petitions with the federal Surface Transportation Board asking them to recognize their authority, but is still awaiting a response. “It is disappointing that the Coastal Commission continues its effort to delay the implementation of needed rail safety measures, while also ac-
tively promoting railroad right-of-way as ‘public access’ and inviting illegal and dangerous crossings,” NCTD Executive Director Matthew Tucker said in a Friday statement. “NCTD has respectfully urged the Surface Transportation Board to make a determination on its related petition as soon as possible.” The district is also facing a suit from the Friends of the Del Mar Bluffs filed on March 21 containing similar allegations against NCTD of disregarding local and state coastal development laws. The state commission alleges in the complaint that the transit district never obtained CEQA exemption for the fencing project, recounting how they improperly filed an “ill-timed” notice of exemption in 2018 with the San Diego County clerk and then failed to file any notice or other CEQA document for the project with the California State Association of Counties. Along with requesting that the district’s contract with Exbon be voided, the commission is seeking an initial civil penalty of up to $30,000, as well as an additional penalty of $15,000 per day that violations persist, according to the complaint. The first hearing for the case has been scheduled for September 30, according to court records.

County committee adopts final electoral map for SDUHSD By Anna Opalsky
ENCINITAS — The San Diego County Committee on School District Organization adopted a final electoral map for the San Dieguito Union High School District at Monday’s public hearing. The decision marks an apparent end to a controversial redistricting process that started in early January under the school district’s direction. After taking over San Dieguito’s redistricting process due to “issues calling into question the timeliness and legality” of the district’s selected Map 8,
the county held three public hearings and presented three draft maps to the public. The County Board of Education, acting as the Committee on School District Organization, unanimously adopted Map C at the April 25 meeting, one of the three maps drawn by the demographer ARCBridge Consulting and Training. Before voting on the map, multiple board members said that Map C aligned best with community requests, including the continuity of city borders, such as Solana
Beach, the even distribution of middle and high schools and the preservation of elementary school feeder districts. “It seems to not be perfect, but it seems to be the one that meets most of the requirements,” said Board member Guadalupe González, who first motioned for its adoption, said. Of the seven people who spoke during yesterday’s hearing, all supported the county’s involvement in the process and the majority favored Map C. “These current maps
take into consideration minority representation and communities of interest,” one speaker said. “All three I think are acceptable. I live in Solana Beach so I prefer Map C.” However, some residents of Del Mar raised concerns that Map C divided the Del Mar Heights area from the city of Del Mar, referencing a part of Del Mar Heights west of Interstate 5 grouped with Area 3, the area comprising Carmel Valley and Rancho Santa Fe. “I would ask if possible to have all of the Del Mar area west of [I-5] together
of three good alternatives compared to what you folks were facing,” Board President Rick Shea said, referring to San Dieguito’s controversial Map 8. The lawsuit against the San Dieguito district’s Map 8 is still pending. Attorney Cory Briggs, who represents two district residents in the suit, said they want the court to deem Map 8 invalid so it cannot be used as a “fallback.” After its submission to the Registrar of Voters, Map C will replace the district’s 2017 Cranberry Map in time for the November elections.
SDUHSD deadlocks on Mossy replacement
San Dieguito names interim superintendent

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District school board appointed Tina Douglas as interim superintendent in a unanimous vote at a special April 22 board meeting. The decision comes on the heels of the board's decision just two days earlier to place Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward on administrative leave for her c o n t r o v e rsial comments about the academic performance of Asian students in the district. AccordDOUGLAS ing to news outlets, James-Ward plans to file a lawsuit against the school district alleging retaliation. “Tina Douglas has more passion for this district than anyone I’ve ever met,” Board President Maureen Muir said during the April 22 meeting. “She has proven herself to be someone who really loves everyone and wants to make sure everyone succeeds.” Since 2017, Douglas has served as the associate superintendent of business services at the school district and has more than 30 years of school business experience. “As Interim Superintendent, she will add stability and calm leadership to SDUHSD,” Trustee Katrina Young said. Douglas did not reply to a request to comment by deadline. The appointment of Douglas is subject to ratification at the next regular San Dieguito school board meeting on May 19. The board has not said for how long James-Ward will be on administrative leave. Douglas is the fourth superintendent for the San Dieguito district in a year. Superintendent Robert Haley resigned on April 27 of last year and businesswoman Lucile Lynch served as interim superintendent before James-Ward’s hiring.
because it is its own community,” another speaker said. “Although I realize the city boundaries are a little bit funky, I think everybody west of [I-5] in Del Mar feels like a unit.” Other residents raised concerns that in an attempt to have a middle and high school per area and move San Dieguito Academy to Area 3, Map C shifted a LatinX community around SDA and the neighboring Ocean Knoll Elementary. Board member Gregg Robinson echoed these concerns, but still voted for Map C. “[Map C] is the best

San Dieguito superintendent placed on administrative leave James-Ward reprimanded for Asian remarks By Laura Place
ENCINITAS — Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward was placed on administrative leave following a 3-1 vote just after midnight on Wednesday at a San Dieguito Union High School District meeting. Community members filled the district board room and two overflow rooms to criticize JamesWard’s recent comments, that many say harmfully stereotyped Chinese families in the district, and to call for her resignation. James-Ward’s controversial comments came during a district Diversity, Equity and Inclusion meeting on April 11, in response to a question from Trustee Michael Allman regarding why Asian students in the district were excelling in school compared to other racial groups, a question many said was also inappropriate to ask in the first place.
“Here in San Dieguito, we have an influx of Asians from China, and the people who are able to make that journey are wealthy. You cannot come to America and buy a house for $2 million unless you have money,” JamesWard said in response. “If we look at where our kids live, in my community in Carmel Valley … up until a couple of years ago, we had a large influx of Chinese families moving in, sight unseen, into our homes, into the community. And that requires money.” The generalization struck a nerve with hundreds of the district’s Chinese families, many of whom said they or their families came to the United States with close to nothing and communicated the importance of education as a core cultural value to their children. The school board received hundreds of emails in backlash, and approximately 70 parents and students shared their outrage and personal stories in over four hours of public comment on Wednesday.
“I work two full-time jobs. I work 80 hours per week to support my kids. I earn the money while everyone is still sleeping at 4 o’clock. Your comments hurt me, hurt my family and discredited my kids,” a district parent said, noting that she came straight to the meeting from her job at a local hospital. One of the main community concerns focused on the dangers of “othering” dialogue against Asian communities, especially in the past couple of years as anti-Asian hate crimes have spiked nationwide. Students and parents also drove home the point that Asian students in the San Dieguito district face racist comments like this in classrooms every day. “This is not to be ignored, Dr. Ward, that your comment has torn my community apart and pitted communities of color against each other,” one district student said. “These comments happen in our district every day, but unlike today, we do not TURN TO JAMES-WARD ON A14
ENCINITAS — Following last week’s resignation of Trustee Melisse Mossy from the San Dieguito Union High School District school board, no action was taken at Wednesday’s board meeting after a motion to appoint a replacement resulted in a 2-2 vote. Mossy, who resigned on April 12 citing “unforeseen personal challenges,” was elected in 2018 to represent Area 3, the voting district largely comprised of Solana Beach. Her term would have ended in November 2022. “It has been my highest honor and privilege to serve the students, staff, and community of SDUHSD,” Mossy wrote in a statement to The Coast News. “I am deeply saddened to make this very difficult announcement.” In compliance with California Education Code, the board has 60 days to appoint someone to fill the vacancy or request an election. If that deadline is missed, the process of ordering an election falls to the County Superintendent of Schools. During the April 20 meeting, Board President Maureen Muir motioned for the board to fill the vacancy via an appointment at the next board meeting. The board’s vote deadlocked at 2-2, with Allman and Muir voting in favor of the motion, and Trustees Julie Bronstein and Katrina Young voting against it. With 60 days to make an appointment before the process goes to an election, the board could discuss or vote on the vacancy at the next meeting, according to Young. Due to the timing of Mossy’s resignation, a potential election would be held in November without incurring additional costs to the district. Last spring, the board was in a similar situation, needing to fill a vacancy left empty after former Trustee Kristin Gibson abruptly resigned. The board chose to fill her seat with the appointment of Ty Humes,
but the public successfully petitioned for a special election, which resulted in Bronstein winning the vacant seat. Both Bronstein and Young said they did not want to make an appointment this year due to the success of the last petition to elect. “The last appointment process did not go well,” Young said. “Right now we have a lot on our plates. It takes a lot of time and energy to run [an appointment.] I don’t believe we have the trust of our community to make that decision.” After the impassioned public comments earlier in the April 20 meeting regarding Superintendent Dr. Cheryl James-Ward’s controversial statement on the success of Asian students, Allman suggested the appointment of a person from the Asian community to represent Area 3. “I don’t think it’s right [to] not have a representative in that area,” Muir said, agreeing with Allman. “We saw the Asian people tonight. They need a voice and this is where we can make that happen.” Since the next election is in November, taking the election route would mean the SDUHSD board would have just four members for more than six months. Both Allman and Muir also supported the appointment because it would restore the board to five members. “I think that us going forward, the two-two board, I don’t think anything will get done,” Muir said. In the past, Mossy was a swing vote. However, both Young and Bronstein said the board would be able to work together as four members. “We were able to work together and compromise tonight with the pools, which was a complex issue,” Young said of an earlier decision at the meeting. “It might take some work on key issues, but if we remember to keep our focus on the kids, I think we can effectively function.”

19, arrested after Encinitas crash By City News Service
ENCINITAS — A 19-year-old Thermal man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of reckless evading of a police officer after a multi-vehicle crash following a high-speed chase with California Highway Patrol officers, authorities said. CHP officers from the Oceanside area were patrolling northbound Interstate 5 at Manchester Avenue at 8:22 a.m. when they saw a grey Nissan Sentra being driven erratically at a high rate of speed, Officer Hunter Gerber of the CHP said. The officers tried to make a traffic stop but the Nissan failed to yield and a pursuit began, Gerber said. The car continued to evade CHP officers on northbound I-5 until it exited at Encinitas Boulevard and traveled eastbound for a little more than a mile until it approached the intersection at Via Cantebria. As the Nissan entered the intersection, it ran a red light and made an illegal left turn toward northbound Via Cantebria, Gerber said. At the same time, two vehicles traveling westbound on Encinitas Boulevard entered the intersection. The first vehicle was a grey Volkswagen Jetta driven by a 25-year-old Carlsbad woman. The second vehicle was a grey Chevrolet Traverse driven by a 32- yearold Encinitas woman, with her two sons, a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old, in the vehicle with her. As the Nissan made a left turn into the intersection, it collided with the Volkswagen and then with the Chevrolet, Gerber said. The Nissan driver and his occupants — all Thermal residents ranging from 16 to 20 years old — were taken to area hospitals for major injuries, Gerber said. The driver of the Volkswagen, the driver of the Chevrolet and her juvenile passengers were also taken to area hospitals, for injuries not considered to be life-threatening. CHP officers arrested the Nissan driver on suspicion of reckless evading of a police officer. Alcohol or drugs were considered a possible factor in the collision, Gerber said. The intersection was cleared by the CHP at 1 p.m. Anyone who witnessed the crash was asked to contact the CHP at 760-643- 3400.

Carlsbad adopts military equipment policy Police required to keep detailed inventory of items By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council on April 19 adopted a policy allowing the “funding, acquisition or use of military equipment by the Carlsbad Police Department” as required under state law. The council approved the city police department's Military Equipment Use policy, which is now required for any municipal law enforcement agency seeking to utilize “military equipment” under state Assembly Bill 481. “Today’s police departments must use a wide range of equipment to protect public safety and provide law enforcement in the communities they serve,” the staff report states. “Much of this equipment is also used by the military.” Allegra Frost, Carlsbad’s deputy city attorney, said items considered to be “military equipment” include drones, armored personnel carriers, command control vehicles, firearms of a .50 caliber or greater, assault weapons, less-lethal projectiles (rubber bullets, bean bags, sponge rounds) and chemical agents (glass breakers, pepper balls, gas-powered rams, barricade penetrating rounds). The policy requires Carlsbad Police to keep an inventory and “detailed” description of each piece of equipment, including purposes and authorized uses, fiscal impacts, legal and procedural rules, required officer training, and mechanisms for compliance and public accountability. Additionally, state law requires the City Council to “review the ordinance each year along with an annual military equipment report
to be prepared by the Police Department,” according to the staff report. The council will determine whether to renew the ordinance on an annual basis. The Carlsbad Police Department identified 53 pieces of equipment currently in its inventory that meets the definition of “military equipment” as defined under the law, including assault weapons, armored vehicles, night vision monoculars (goggles), rifle suppressors, breaching rounds and a Lenco Bearcat, an armored vehicle for SWAT. Lt. Reid Shipley said many of the items already in possession by Carlsbad police are “essential” for de-escalation. According to Shipley, approximately 83% of the equipment is limited to SWAT and just 17% is deployed for regular patrols. “SWAT receives extra training … concerning environments threatening public safety,” Shipley said. “We have refresher training and regular certifications.” Shipley further explained items, such as drones, are deployed for large-scale events, includ-

ing the Village Street Fair and Carlsbad Marathon. According to the staff report, the equipment is necessary because “there are no reasonable alternatives that can achieve the same objective of officer and community safety.” The report states the demands created by emergency situations and legitimate law enforcement investigations must be constantly balanced with the protection of privacy expected by every member of the public. Councilman Keith Blackburn, a former CPD officer and current reserve officer, said the bill was mislabeled. “It’s police equipment, not military equipment,” Blackburn said. Some of the military equipment items provide real-time information to police and enable them to develop appropriate plans before entering into potentially dangerous situations. The technology items, such as the throw robot and aerial drone, allow officers to actually interact with
individuals from a safe distance, keeping officers out of harm’s way and significantly reducing the potential for violent encounters. The less-lethal equipment on the list (bean bags, sponge rounds) provides critical alternatives to lethal force in violent interactions with people who are often armed and represent a significant danger to the public, while lethal weapons, such as long-range rifles, provide the essential de-escalation component of time and distance while still enabling officers to immediately respond with accurate, life-saving force.
SOLANA BEACH — Longtime North County concert venue and entertainment company Belly Up has been named as events manager and promoter for the Del Mar Fairgrounds’ nearly finished indoor concert space in the Surfside Race Place, just down the road from their existing Solana Beach venue. The 22nd District Agricultural Association, the board managing the Fairgrounds, approved the contract valued at over $16 million with Belly Up on April 8, bringing to an end an at times contentious three-year search for a venue manager. Under their contract, Belly Up will be charged with managing a performance operation with nearly 1,900 seats and around 60 bookings per year in the 90,000 squarefoot Surfside Race Place, first built in the 1990s as a satellite wagering facility. As the use of the facility dwindled over the years, the Fairgrounds decided to renovate twothirds of the building into a concert and entertainment space in order to bring in more annual revenue. The Center, as the building will be renamed, will include a main stage and tiered seating as well as a beer-tasting exhibit hall to be managed by Premier Food and Service. Private events will also be permitted in the space, and the building will continue to host disTURN TO BELLY UP ON A11

Equity Committee issues final recommendations to council Group’s final proposal makes ‘realistic’ changes By Stephen Wyer
ENCINITAS — After a mix of feedback and pushback from residents, the city’s Equity Committee has released a final draft of recommendations the group believes will make city government more equitable and inclusive, especially for women and minorities. The committee un-
veiled the final draft report at its April 19 meeting that will be presented to the Encinitas City Council in May, covering a whole host of equity-related topics including housing, safety, and community engagement. By far the most controversial section of the report, however, dealt with the city’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Among other things, the committee’s final draft recommends hiring a DEI leader to oversee government bodies, establishing a
set of equity criteria to be utilized in all city processes, programs, and reports, and issuing a city proclamation on a public commitment to DEI. Most of these proposals were virtually identical to a draft of the recommendations released last month. The committee’s final version notably backed off a more controversial proposal released in the earlier draft, which recommended the city require at least one woman or person of color on each board or commission. In place of this stipulation, the final draft instead merely recommends the city adopt an aspirational statement about equitable representation in city government, while interviewing at least one woman or minority person for available positions. According to Mali Woods-Drake, founder of Encinitas4Equality and a member of the Equity Committee, the removal of this hiring stipulation was not due to public pressure but was instead a recognition on the committee’s part of a need to set a more realistic expectations. “By making this a recommendation instead of a requirement, we’re recognizing the realities of the demographics in Encinitas,” Woods-Drake said. “When you have just .8% of residents who are Black and 12% Hispanic in Encinitas, that makes it really hard to find people interested in that role, so to make it a requirement makes it really difficult when you have such a small group of those people to begin with.” “Instead what we’re doing is with this aspirational [goal] we’re creating more intentionality around who we’re inviting to have a seat at the table. One of goals is to create a more welcoming

Encinitas, and the hope is to find more applicants of diversity who are interested in civic engagement, but the work has to be there from city first to create that safe and welcoming environment for applicants.” In order to encourage more diversity on government bodies, the committee’s final draft also recommends offering a need-based stipend to commission members. Since commission positions are generally volunteer-based, the Equity Committee found that the lack of compensation tends to be an added barrier for women and persons of color in taking on these roles, according to Councilmember Kellie Hinze, who worked closely with the committee in producing the recommendations. “What the committee recognized is that there are systemic challenges that women and people of color face," Hinze said. "Women, for instance, tend to do a lot of elder and child care work and that makes it difficult to get away to commission meetings for that long, so recognizing that these are volunteer roles and that if we want more diverse membership those groups might need to overcome such

challenges, we made the recommendation to consider need-based stipends for commissioners.” Since its creation in May 2021, the Equity Committee has faced heavy criticism from residents. In March, the preliminary draft of the recommendations was widely scrutinized, with the report’s proposals on diversity coming under fire in particular. Despite the removal of the hiring requirement from the final draft, many residents interviewed by The Coast News said that they still felt as though the recommendations were politically motivated and not in the best interests of Encinitas. Specifically, several residents expressed skepticism about a proposal in the report to create a contact list of non-profits to distribute city government positions to. Natalie Settoon, an Encinitas resident active in local government who watched the Equity Committee’s meeting, said she’s worried that this stipulation could create bias and favoritism when it comes to appointing municipal officials. “Persons interested in government service should demonstrate community initiative on their own accord. Do we really want a candidate with nominal ambition and resourcefulness? This is bad policy,” Settoon said. “Local nonprofits aren’t curing cancer or feeding refugees. They’re advancing political agendas, favored by key players on the Equity Committee, but in general are not favored by our community at large. It is highly improper for city government to list vacancies specifically to nonprofits and give them a special seat at the table. Simply put, this creates bias.” Jed Stuber agreed, adding that he thinks that this recommendation could create potential conflicts of interest. “This [proposal] creates a scenario where we allow nonprofits to basically run the town, and I don’t think that’s good,” Stuber said. “As a person in this community if I were to see that enacted, it would make me less likely to want to pursue such a position.” Stuber also noted it was a “huge conflict” especially since a member of the Equity Committee is an
active board member with a local nonprofit, referring to Woods-Drake, who sits on the board of Encinitas4Equality, a local organization dedicated to advancing social justice and promoting the rights and interests of disadvantaged communities. Woods-Drake dismissed the idea that the report’s adoption would lead to favoritism for residents who happen to be connected to a nonprofit. The goal of the provision, she clarified, was simply to utilize nonprofits to raise awareness about open municipal roles in the community. “My stance is that there are many local nonprofits connected with community members, that there’s a lot of volunteers who are interested in specific kinds of work and this would be an avenue for the city to get the word out to constituents, residents who otherwise may not be aware of these commissions,” Woods-Drake said. “For me, it’s about how do we get the word out to people who typically wouldn’t be following this stuff, and this isn’t about prioritizing people who are connected to nonprofits but it’s rather just another avenue to inform residents in the community about the opportunities that are available.” Other community members took issue with the rhetoric used in the report and by committee members. “Encinitas simply does not suffer from systemic racism…the recommendations are nothing more than a power play by groups such as the Equity Committee, who insinuate their way into government by latching onto fake woke politicians like Catherine Blakespear,” said longtime resident Steven Golden. “Adding unneeded layers of administration and more money taken from the budget all for a plan rife with reverse discrimination and quotas.” “This proposal creates more costs and more layers of bureaucracy based around a singular political view in a city that doesn’t even have adequate public safety personnel,” said Alex Riley, a former council candidate. Local business owner Gary Stuber said he hopes the City Council rejects the committee’s recommendations, as he says these proposals are unneeded and unwanted by residents. “The entire purpose of the Equity Committee is to create problems that don't exist, so certain people can get paid for doing nothing but complain about problems that don’t exist and never have in Encinitas,” Gary Stuber said. The Equity Committee is entirely composed of volunteers. The body, which was created in May 2021, is set to be disbanded after its one-year term of service comes up next month.

College landscape transformed
think we have gone way off-center. Not sure if we were quite there in the first place. We have changed decades of college sports history. Even the insiders and aficionados are confused. Just take a look at your alma mater. What conference are they in? Maryland has always been identified with the ACC and now lines up in the Big Ten. Missouri an original Big Eight and Big 12 member, jumped to the SEC. College football is a multibillion-dollar business. Colleges are about revenue and the football program at Michigan underwrites all other sports at that university. Colleges are leapfrogging to the money trails and so are the college athletes. NIL stands for name, image, likeness. It is an opportunity for young athletes to get attention, become famous and earn revenue. A decision by the US Supreme Court last June permits athletes to make money from their fame. Now, athletes — even high school athletes — are earning unheard-of money from these deals. One top QB who transferred signed a NIL deal that will pay him $1 million before he throws his first pass for his new school. A sophomore in high school signed a $400,000 NIL deal at the age of 16. College athletes have a new brand: Themselves! For years the NCAA controlled a money stream that was unmatched. Year after year, it benefited from student- athletes and kept all the money. That ship has sailed. It’s a new day. And it’s a brand-new era. The monopoly has been broken and the athletes are moving forward and bankrolling dollars like never before. Is it good? Personally, I have mixed emotions. I’m concerned about the integrity of the game and the competitive nature of amateur status, among other issues. In addition, you now have the transfer portal that allows athletes to transfer from one university to another overnight, without sitting out one academic calendar year before resuming play. The highest court in the land has opened the floodgates for college athletes to have incredible flexibility to build their position and equity.
he surface might change but the results seldom do for Del Mar’s tennis ace, Cathie Anderson. “On clay the ball bounces a little higher and a little slower,” Anderson said. “On the hard courts, the balls are going by you like bullets and you think, ‘When did you learn to hit the ball hard like that?’” Anderson, along with numerous others with North County ties, is competing in the upcoming United States Tennis Association National Women’s 50-90 Hard Court Championships at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. “It is such a beautiful place and players from all over the world will be coming here,” Anderson said. “I used to come here before I even moved here.” Anderson has been chasing that fuzzy yellow ball, and the accolades that go with prevailing, since she was 6 years old. While being raised in the Buckeye State, Anderson looked for a bull’s eye on the tennis court. With her precision strokes, a competitive gene and a joy for the game, Anderson, who turns 80 in December, is still swinging all these years later. She’s hung her racket in Del Mar for more than three decades, always eager to head for the nearest court. “My parents wanted me to be well-rounded so they had me take golf and tennis lessons and everything else,” Anderson said. “They didn’t expect me to focus on just one sport and I’ve been playing it ever since.” Anderson grew up in Dayton, Ohio, while grow-

Cue Mark Twain as Anderson missed his quote that he may, or may not, have said: “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” Anderson attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she was on the tennis team, or what passed for one before Title IX. There were no scholarships or extended road trips for the women, just an abundance of love for tennis. But not an abundance of sunshine. “I wanted to be in warm weather and play yearround,” she said. “I didn’t realize Berkeley, while it wasn’t cold like Ohio, it wasn’t always warm.” Anderson kept serving and returning her assignments for good grades, graduating in 1964. She became a cartographer and made and studied maps for topshelf architecture firms and the City of San Francisco. She also continued to give lessons.

Encinitas enrolls customers in new renewable energy plan City first in county to offer 100% renewable By Stephen Wyer
ENCINITAS — The city of Encinitas is the first in San Diego County to start offering 100% renewable energy as the default option for both its residential and commercial customers. Just this month, Encinitas residents started receiving letters notifying them of their automatic enrollment into San Diego Community Power’s new alternative en-
ergy program greenlighted by state officials in 2020. Customers are also beginning to receive enrollment notifications in Imperial Beach, La Mesa, San Diego, and Chula Vista as well. The community choice aggregation program has two tiers. Municipalities can either enroll their residents in the standard PowerOn plan, which is made up of 50% renewable energy; or customers can be enrolled in the more premium tier, Power100, where the energy supply is guaranteed 100% renewable. According to Karin

Encinitas is the only city in the county enrolling its residents into Power100. Plans in this tier will be 2-3% more expensive than the PowerOn tier and 1-2% more costly than SDG&E’s standard package. Residents can still opt into the cheaper PowerOn plan if they wish, or can entirely opt out of the program altogether and continue to receive their energy from SDG&E, which offers consumers a standard bundle that is 31% renewable energy.

San Diego Community Power’s program has to do with the generation component, but SDG&E will continue to be responsible for the transmission of energy into residents’ homes, and will also continue to provide customer service and regular maintenance, Burns said. “As this service rolls out, people will be automatically enrolled, so you don’t have to do anything to take advantage of these great rates and great energy, just by enrolling in this service they’re participating in this green energy feature,” Blakespear said. “The easiest thing every customer can do to ensure the promotion of clean energy is to simply stay enrolled in this for less than the price of a cup of coffee more per month.” According to Burns, the Power100 plan will allow Encinitas to reach its renewable energy goals set by the Encinitas City Council eight years sooner than it would have if it had stayed
on SDG&E’s power supply. The city’s move to the Power100 plan not only will significantly reduce the city’s carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions but also sets an important example for the rest of the region in the overall movement towards clean energy, according to Joyce Layne, board president of the environmental organization San Diego 350, which advocates for a county-wide Community Choice Energy program. “The fact that Encinitas has opted to have the default of 100% clean energy, that’s wonderful news and means they’ll really be able to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, it really does mean a lot for the environment,” Layne said. “Encinitas is demonstrating its commitment to leading the way in reducing its carbon footprint and that’s very exciting for the whole of the San Diego region.” San Diego Community Power is what’s referred to as a community choice aggregator, or CCA, a government-run, nonprofit entity that is becoming more common in California. Almost 40% of California’s electricity will be serviced by CCAs this year, according to the trade group Cal CCA. While SDG&E has made some efforts of its own in recent years to push towards more renewable sources, Layne asserted TURN TO CLEAN ENERGY ON A13

trict offices and satellite wagering, or offtrack betting. “It’s very early in the process, so there will be a lot more to talk about as the plans develop, but the bottom line is that San Diego County is about to have a new jewel of a venue as part of its entertainment landscape and we’re really excited to be a part of it,” said Belly Up Entertainment president Chris Goldsmith. This isn’t the first time the company has been awarded the events manager and promoter contract. The 22nd DAA first selected Belly Up for the role in 2018 but rescinded the offer after competitor KAABOOWorks Services, LLC, filed a protest alleging that the request for proposals process violated state contracting guidelines. Due to COVID-induced slowdowns in facility construction, the issuance of a new management contract was delayed until earlier this year. This time, Belly Up was the only applicant. “Through a competitive bidding process, we sought a highly qualified entertainment promotion and management company to become a collaborative partner with us.” 22nd District Agricultural Association CEO Carlene Moore said during the April 8 meeting. “They’ll be working to bring complementary entertainment and educational programming into the venue, and to have that work in tandem with our other activities taking place at the Fairgrounds as well.” Even prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the $13-million project faced delays when costs came in higher than expected, pushing out the anticipated completion from 2019 to further down the road. However, construction of the venue is now
sportsbook development at this time. This marks Solana Beach officials’ third lawsuit against the 22nd DAA in approximately the last decade and another example of the city’s frustration about potential local impacts from expanded activities and operations at the Fairgrounds. In 2011, Solana Beach was joined by the City of Del Mar and the San Dieguito River Park in suing the 22nd DAA over the adequacy of environmental plans related to a facilities
upgrade, which ended in a settlement. The city also filed a 2017 suit opposing the construction of a nearly 2,000seat concert venue at the Fairgrounds due to concerns about noise, traffic and air quality, resolved by a memorandum of understanding between the two parties. The current case has been assigned to San Diego County Superior Court Judge John Meyer, with no upcoming hearings scheduled thus far, per court records.
“nearly complete,” said Fairgrounds spokeswoman Jennifer Hellman, although no opening date has been confirmed. “It’s been a lengthy journey, as we all know. It’s been nearly three years … since we started construction,” Moore said. “We really look forward to debuting it.” According to Moore, the Fairgrounds will receive a per-show baseline flat fee from Belly Up, set at a minimum of $7,500 per show. The venue is expected to book around 60 shows per year, with four opportunities for usage by the 22nd DAA themselves. The contract lasts
through April 2023, with the option for renewals on a three-year period at the discretion of the 22nd DAA. Since opening in 1974, The Belly Up on South Cedros Avenue has become an iconic regional staple for music lovers, with a 600-person capacity and a legacy of acclaimed performers including The Killers, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and even the Rolling Stones. The company also partners with the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce each year for the annual Fiesta del Sol event at Fletcher Cove Park, drawing approximately 50,000 people over two days.

CLEAN ENERGY CONTINUED FROM A10
the investor-owned utility company is still ultimately geared toward profit margins and not necessarily towards clean energy goals. Layne argues that community choice energy programs, such as San Diego Community Power, are specifically focused on building green energy solutions for commercial and residential customers. “CCAs are a really important way for communities to have energy choice and for cities and communities to ramp up their renewable energy portfolios, in fact, we’ve determined that the only way San Diego is going to get to 100% renewable is to have community choice energy,” Layne said. “Utilities are simply not going to do that — they’re so heavily invested in natural gas. If we want a world that’s going to be livable for human beings, for our children and grandchildren, we absolutely have to be moving as quickly as possible to reduce our carbon emissions. “And utilities have the profit motive that is simply not set up that way, their reason for being is not to help us get there. So CCAs have been the vehicle throughout the state to get us to 100% clean electricity, and so what Encinitas is doing here is really important.” Blakespear agreed, arguing that the city’s move to 100% renewable sets a high regional standard in the push for green energy. “To create renewable energy in the pipeline you can’t just have oil and gas, you have to have the demand to create that supply chain, and driving the supply chain is ultimately the point,” Blakespear said. “There’s lots of reasons to
move to community choice energy, the local control, the low cost, and there’s no investors to pay instead we can reinvest in our community, but ultimately the main reason is the environmental reason, and I’m proud that we did not ever lose sight of that and that the council unanimously supported this.” While some customers will probably opt out of Power100 in favor of one of the cheaper plans, Layne expressed confidence that the vast majority of residents will likely choose to stay in the plan. “I think that people here are very concerned about climate change, so as time goes on I think more people will choose Power100,” Layne said. “At the end of the day, a 3% surcharge is a very small premium and a very reasonable cost to help save the planet.” SDG&E released the following statement regarding the SDCP program rollout. “SDG&E is working collaboratively with San Diego Community Power (SDCP) to transition residential customers in five local cities to SDCP — a community choice aggregation (CCA) program formed by the cities of San Diego, Chula Vista, Encinitas, Imperial Beach and La Mesa to procure electricity to serve residents within their boundaries. “While SDG&E will no longer be responsible for buying electricity to serve SDCP customers, we will continue to operate and build the infrastructure needed to deliver clean, safe and reliable electricity to them, as well as provide billing, meter reading and other customer services. We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure a seamless transition.”

HUNDREDS OF community members, largely from the district’s Chinese American community, fill the San Dieguito Union High School District board room and two overflow rooms on Wednesday, April 20, to protest comments about Chinese families in the district made by Superintendent Dr. Cheryl James-Ward.

She said training so [we] can enjoy she had a good relationship inclusivity, patience and with Chinese families, but the culture of other peo-
ples,” said Yusef Miller of the North San Diego County NAACP. Miller and members of Asian Solidarity Collective also pointed out that the superintendent and board president Mo Muir had made additional problematic statements about the Latino and Black communities during the same April 11 DEI discussion. Following JamesWard’s first statement about wealth playing a major role in Asian students’ performance, Muir said she did not think that was correct, and that it had more to do with the fact that Asian students have their parents and grandparents living with them and supporting them in their education and studies. “Talking about the Asian community, I’m so grateful they have their parents and grandparents at home,” Muir said, noting specifically that parents are present to “pick them up.” James-Ward responded that it requires a great deal of money to have an entire family immigrate over, and claimed that in other racial and ethnic groups, such as the Hispanic community, “they don’t have that type of money. Parents are working two jobs, they’re working from sunup to sundown. They are not having the same conversations because the parents aren’t home, they have to work, so they’re not having those conversations to the same degree.” Many community members saw these comments as offensive statements against Hispanic as well as Black communities and the support they show for their children. “If you’re upset about Dr. Ward’s comments, then you should be equally as upset about [Muir’s] comments that Black and brown families are not intact,” a representative with Asian Solidarity Collective told attendees.
public comment, board members Allman, Muir, Julie Bronstein and Katrina Young went into a closed session just before midnight to discuss JamesWard’s comments and the community’s feedback. Back in the open session, Muir reported that the board had voted 3-1 in favor of administrative leave, with Young dissenting. The five-person board is currently short one member since Area 3 representative Melisse Mossy announced her resignation last week. All four board members expressed gratitude to all the speakers for sharing their stories and expressed a desire to see the district continue to grow and improve. Allman and Muir specifically spoke out against James-Ward’s comments at the April 11 meeting. “I condemn her words in the strongest possible way,” Allman said. “It’s our job to get it right, we’re gonna keep trying to do the right thing.” What happens next for James-Ward, whose term as superintendent began in November 2021, and the district, is unclear. Superintendents are ultimately decided by the board of trustees after a lengthy application process. The district did not respond to requests for comment about the administrative leave process in time for publication. Regardless, student board representative Amanda Chen said, there is a clear need to uplift Asian voices in district leadership and bring them into conversations about diversity and equity work. “Historically and currently, the Asian community is definitely overlooked. Something that I haven’t heard brought up yet is that at the DEI meeting, there was not one Asian person in the room,” she said, noting that there is also no Asian representation on the board itself or the DEI Commitextensive tee.

The 2016 scenario provided the perfect natural experiment, the authors say, because the outcome was a surprise and also because the United States is so polarized. Trump’s win in 2016 was unexpected by the majority of Americans, the authors said, and it led to a sharp change in optimism among Democrats and Republicans, according to several different surveys. One survey revealed that within four months of the election, Republican and Democratic outlooks on the economy had flipped, with a strong majority of Republican voters saying they believed economic conditions were getting better — reversing formerly pessimistic views — while the opposite was true for Democrats. As comparison, the researchers also looked at previous elections. The election of former President Barack Obama, who was long projected to win the presidency in both 2008 and in 2012, had no effect on birth rates. However, they found a similar effect in 2000, when George W. Bush was elected after Al Gore was favored to win. Still, the change was much smaller compared to the Trump presidency. “Our research really illustrates how polarized the country has become over the last 20 years,” Mullins said.
as idyllic and perfect as I thought it was. “My hope is that when people see the recommendations for what they are, they’ll realize that this bogeyman they’ve created about the recommendations aren’t true.” Hinze defended the Equity Committee, calling its work an asset to the city, and extolling the group for giving Encinitas an opportunity to be reflective about how it can improve its commitment to DEI. “I think that social justice issues are always really challenging to talk about, it’s always called into question by those who don’t experience certain injustices as problems in their own lives, but just because it’s not a problem to certain members of the community doesn’t mean it’s not a problem to others,” Hinze said. Like Woods-Drake, Hinze also expressed that the fierce criticisms faced by the committee have been largely misplaced. “These folks are volunteers and dedicate their personal time to these problems, and the majority of complaints about the Equity Committee that we’ve received have just been personal attacks on people that they disagree with,” Hinze said. Hinze said she plans on voting to finalize the draft recommendations in May.
REGION — Republican-leaning counties saw a significant baby bump following the 2016 election of President Donald Trump compared to Democrat-leaning counties, a study from UC San Diego revealed this week. The study found that the difference in the first two years of the Trump presidency amounted to between 1% and 2% of the national birth rate. That’s a significant partisan shift according to the UCSD authors, Gordon Dahl, professor of economics in the Department of Economics/School of Social Sciences and William Mullins, assistant professor of finance at the Rady School of Management. “The size of the change is equivalent to changes in birth rates that occur after economic shocks or in response to policies designed to affect birth rates,” Dahl said. “For example, when unemployment drops by 1%, it increases national fertility by 1 to 2%, and when other countries provide a $1,000 subsidy to mothers for having a child, fertility rates rise by about 2%.” The study, to be published in a future issue of American Economic Review: Insights, is touted as the first to establish a link between a presidential election and the birth rates of politically aligned groups.

ty Committee member, said that the criticisms of the report have largely been misguided and not factually based. For instance, he shot down the idea that the report’s hiring proposals would lead to unqualified individuals being selected to city commissions or boards. “The idea with this [recommendation] is simply to cast an extremely wide net, wider than we typically do because a lot of people don’t even know that these positions exist,” Taylor said. “I don’t think it’s a stretch for us to say that one woman or one person of color should be on these commissions. “Now, do you put them on there for the sake of putting them on there? No…I really don’t think it’s the case that people will apply for positions that they’re not qualified for, and I think that the notion that someone will be brought on solely because of gender or race is probably a bit far-fetched.” Woods-Drake called the public backlash faced by the committee a “disappointing” reflection of Encinitas. “Yeah, it’s disappointing to recognize the amount of work that needs to be done in this community,” Woods-Drake. “It’s been disappointing to realize that Encinitas is not

CITY OF CARLSBAD ORDINANCE NO. CS-420 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, AMENDING TITLE 6 OF THE CARLSBAD MUNICIPAL CODE TO ADD CHAPTER 6.20 – PHASED-IN SINGLE-USE PLASTIC FOODWARE BAN WHEREAS, the City of Carlsbad, California aims to be a leader in sustainability and take action to: protect our natural resources, the environment and wildlife, divert waste from landfills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase city cleanliness and quality of life by reducing litter on city beaches and public areas; and WHEREAS, the State of California has found and declared in California Public Resources Code Section 42355 that, “Littered plastic products have caused and continue to cause significant environmental harm and have burdened local governments with significant environmental cleanup costs”; and WHEREAS, expanded polystyrene, sometimes called “Styrofoam,” is a harmful pollutant that breaks down into smaller pieces, is easily carried by wind onto beaches and waterways, harms wildlife and persists in the marine environment; and WHEREAS, polystyrene items and small single-use plastic foodware items are often difficult to recycle and are not accepted in the city’s recyclable materials collection program; and WHEREAS, polystyrene has been identified as one of the most common contaminants in the city’s recyclable materials containers; and WHEREAS, single-use disposable materials from food and beverage consumption make up approximately 25% of the waste produced in California; and WHEREAS, the city adopted a Sustainable Materials Management Plan on August 20, 2019 through Resolution No. 2019-145 and a subsequent Sustainable Materials Management Implementation Plan on December 14, 2021 through Resolution No. 2021-291, to provide recommendations and actions to support the city’s achievement of its sustainability goals; and WHEREAS, a key initiative of the Sustainable Materials Implementation Plan is the research, development and implementation of policies that reduce waste and support the city’s sustainability goals, including an ordinance to address single-use plastic foodware and polystyrene; and WHEREAS, the state Legislature enacted Assembly Bill 1884 in 2018 prohibiting full-service restaurants from providing single-use plastic straws unless requested by the consumer; and WHEREAS, the state Legislature enacted AB 1276 in 2021, which expanded on AB 1884 to require accessory foodware (e.g., utensils, chopsticks, straws, stirrers) and condiments only be provided upon consumer request, among other related requirements; and WHEREAS, AB 1276 does not prevent a city from adopting and implementing an ordinance that would further restrict a food facility or a third-party food delivery platform from providing single-use foodware accessories or standard condiments to a consumer; and WHEREAS, in addition to more sustainable alternatives for single-use foodware, the city wishes to encourage use of reusable foodware in order to emphasize the importance of source reduction and align with the city’s Sustainable Materials Implementation Plan goals; and WHEREAS, by providing single-use foodware accessories only upon request and increasing use of reusables, businesses can limit unnecessary inventory reductions; and WHEREAS, as a coastal community, protecting the cleanliness of the city’s beaches helps improve quality of life and stimulates the local economy by creating a more attractive environment for tourism; and WHEREAS, the acceptable alternatives to single-use foodware provided under the Ordinance will align with the materials accepted in the city’s collection program, which reduces confusion for residents, businesses, and visitors about source separation requirements, and ultimately reduces the risk of contamination; and WHEREAS, reducing contamination benefits waste haulers and facility operators by improving effectiveness of collection and processing, increasing quality of materials, meeting diversion targets, and extending the operating life of landfills; and WHEREAS, in order to support businesses with successful implementation, this ordinance includes a phased implementation approach that prioritizes education prior to enforcement. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of Carlsbad, California, ordains as follows: SECTION I: The above recitations are true and correct. SECTION II: Title 6 of the Carlsbad Municipal Code is amended to add Chapter 6.20 – Phased-In Ban Single-Use Plastic Foodware Ban, which reads as follows:

Notwithstanding Section 6.20.030(A), the following foodware types are permissible: 1.

E. A food service provider may ask a drive-through consumer if the consumer wants a single-use foodware accessory, rather than the consumer initiating the request, if the single-use foodware accessory is necessary for the consumer to consume prepared food, or to safely transport or prevent spills of prepared food. F. A food service provider that is located entirely within a public use airport, as defined in Section 77.3 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations, may ask a walk-through consumer if the consumer wants a single-use foodware accessory, rather than the consumer initiating the request, if the single-use foodware accessory is necessary for the consumer to consume prepared food, or to safely transport or prevent spills of prepared food. G. A food service provider may provide lids or cup sleeves for beverages that are provided via drive-through or delivery by the food service provider or a third-party food delivery platform without consumer request, if specifically necessary for
the consumer to safely consume such beverages, or for prevention of spills and the safe transport of beverages. H. A third-party food delivery platform shall provide consumers with the option to request single-use foodware accessories or standard condiments from a food service provider serving prepared food. The third-party food delivery platform shall provide the food service provider with the option to customize its menu on the platform and provide technical assistance to the food service provider as needed in order to make such changes. I. If a food service provider uses any third-party food delivery platform for prepared food, the food service provider shall customize its menu with a list of available single-use foodware accessories and standard condiments, and only those single-use foodware accessories or standard condiments selected by the consumer shall be provided by the food service provider. If a consumer does not select any single-use foodware accessories or standard condiments, no single-use foodware accessory or standard condiment shall be provided by the food service provider for delivery of prepared food, except as provided for in subsection 6.20.050(G) above. J. Nothing in this section shall prohibit a regulated entity from making unwrapped single-use foodware accessories available to a consumer using refillable self-service dispensers that dispense one item at a time to allow for single-use foodware accessories to be obtained.

Food service providers, at their discretion, may include a charge for foodware provided to consumers or provide other incentives to encourage use of reusable foodware. E. Within 30 days of the effective date of this chapter, food service providers shall post educational materials regarding the requirements of this chapter, if such materials are provided by the city.

Feel younger with more hair Beyond bags and wrinkles seen over time in the face, hair loss is another telltale sign of aging that Moradi MD is striving to reverse and beautify. Moradi MD is wellknown in the region for its many facial rejuvenation and plastic surgery procedures, not to mention its fat-freezing CoolSculpting technology. Now, the practice has introduced a program targeting hair loss with several different modes of reversing thinning and balding hair. Though Moradi MD previously offered hair loss treatments, the program has received new life under the hands of Dr. Saami Khalifian, a dermatologist with years of experience in hair loss treatments. Prior to joining Moradi MD, he established the hair loss treatment program at another practice in San Diego, and was a faculty member at University of California Los Angeles where he was one of the school’s experts on hair loss. Many people only think about correcting the signs of aging in their face but forget about their hair, hands, neck and other parts of the body. “All of these things are part of aging,” Dr. Khalifian said. “You want things to be in harmony, so the idea

is taking a holistic approach to beauty – from the hair down and everything in between.” Moradi MD offers everything from topical and oral treatments, injectables like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which removes platelets from the patient’s blood and injects those platelets into the scalp, as well as the most effective form of hair restoration: hair transplants. There are two types of hair transplants that the practice offers. The first is follicular unit extraction, which is done by taking individual hair follicles from the scalp and placing them in the balding areas of the
scalp. The other is a “traditional” strip hair transplant, which takes a narrow strip of hair from the back of the scalp, removes the individual follicles from the removed strip, and places the follicles into the balding areas. Though hair transplants are the most effective way to restore hair loss, Dr. Khalifian cautioned that the procedures are not right for everyone. He recommends that people between the ages of 30 and 35 should hold off on pursuing hair transplants until they are past 40 when their hair loss has more likely stabilized. Dr. Khalifian also pre-
fers to only perform the strip hair transplant on patients who require 3,000 or more hairs because it leaves a scar on the back of the scalp. Though the follicular unit extraction is more labor intensive, the dermatologist prefers that option because it is scar-free for his patients. “It just depends on what the right thing is for the patient,” Dr. Khalifian said. “Our primary goal is to do things that are in the best interest of the patients.” Dr. Khalifian wants his patients to be happy, even if that means having to turn them down for a procedure like a hair transplant. “It’s my job to keep them informed,” he said. “You want to make sure people feel good about what you’re doing for them and not just taking them for a ride.” "For more information on this game-changing hair procedure or other services offered at the Moradi MD treatment center please call 760-645-1300 or visit their website www.MoradiMD.com.

It’s strawberry season — and shortcake too jano’s garden jano nightingale
erfect strawberries are not that easy to grow. I have tried over the past year at the Pine Street Community Garden, but have produced only a few small, imperfect versions. But the Williamson family, of Williamson Farms in Oceanside, grows the perfect berry! I recently had the pleasure to visit with Becky Williamson Hall at the Williamson Farm Stand on Ivy Road in Oceanside. The tiny stand is just off the Jefferson Street Exit on state Route 78 and is worth the trip from whichever direction you are traveling. The berries are so perfect and exceptionally clean, that they almost do not look real! The fruit is priced reasonably at three pints for $16 and customers line up as soon as they open at 9 a.m. to snatch up the first batch. Berries are picked each morning, so they are exceptionally fresh. The favorite with many customers is the largest berry with the stem left on the fruit, and people call

Locals clean tobacco waste in Carlsbad

Volunteers remove trash, cigarette butts
My dream car is a train
CARLSBAD — Residents, local businesses and associations came together for a good cause last week. Carlsbad Village Association, Pure Project and Handel’s Ice Cream along with more than 50 volunteers joined forces on April 16 to help make Carlsbad Village just a little bit cleaner by picking up tobacco waste. The two-hour community cleanup, supported by the educational efforts of the San Diego State University Tobacco Product Waste Reduction Project, brought in 108 pounds of trash and 28 pounds of cigarette butts. The two top “butts” collectors, Anna and Zee, and two raffle winners, Kensington and Chase, were able to choose from pints of ice cream or pints of beer donated by the host businesses. “Our community coming out is really how these clean ups are so successful and we appreciate each and every one of them,” said Tish Gehringer, program manager at CVA. “We had over 50 people participate in this clean up, on a holiday weekend, which is very encouraging. “Partnering with Handel’s and Pure Project and repurposing their buckets and grain bags, allowed us to waste nothing and skip the plastic trash bags. “We hope you’ll keep your eye out for more of these events coming soon as we are committed to making a difference in Carlsbad Village.”

In the next few weeks, Goodman plans to meet with Library Division Manager and Arts Commission liaison CJ DiMento, Oceanside Chamber of Commerce Chair Scott Ashton and others. “We’re looking for strengths and opportunities within the planning phase of the next 30 days to figure out what we’ll do,” Goodman said. “Moving forward and beyond that, we’ll begin executing that plan.” As part of the 20-year lease agreement, the theater company must renovate the historic theater along with the attached
he Red Cars of early Southern California would still be rolling today if more people felt like I do about driving — and yet the easiest way to find me is to check my front seat. Occasionally, I even long for the New York City subway. I didn’t relish too many other things about my two years in Queens, but I never missed having a car. Yeah, I know. That’s nigh on to heresy in these parts, but there you are. This basic distaste for being behind the wheel was exacerbated by my children hitting the age where they required endless chauffeuring. Not just one or two environmentally sound trips a day. Oh no. Now we needed to go cross-town to new friends’ houses and back again, to the basketball courts, the gym, the movies and then the pizza place, and then the video store and then the mall and then, and then. To and from, back and forth, times two children. I felt like I needed a pit crew waiting in my driveway as I raced home just long enough to unload one group of kids and load up another. It is clearly nature’s way of getting parents ready to actually let their teenagers take the wheel. Meanwhile, my aversion to the California state hobby led me to reconsider the local train system. I have had pretty good luck with my train travel, but I have recently heard troubling tales of

ENCINITAS — No more orange cones and traffic backup, for now. Olivenhain Municipal Water District’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the filing of a notice of completion for the Manchester Avenue Potable Water Pipeline Project on April 20. Pipeline replacement work is now complete along Manchester Avenue, Rancho Santa Fe Road and Encinitas Boulevard. In total, 3,700 linear feet of aged potable water pipeline was replaced. The pipelines previously serving water in this area were installed in 1961 and were approaching the end of their lifespan. OMWD is proactive in repairing and replacing aging water infrastructure to avoid leaks and ensure uninterrupted water service
to its customers. As the impact of California’s drought continues to escalate, projects like this that help save potable water are even more urgent. “Emergency leaks are very costly, can waste millions of gallons of water, and can be disruptive to surrounding communities,” said Bob Topolovac, OMWD board director. “The investments we made to prevent these emergencies will benefit our ratepayers well into the future.” This project was completed on time and with no major disruptions or water outages to the impacted community. OMWD coordinated with the city of Encinitas on a traffic management plan to mitigate construction traffic, and there were no significant traffic impacts.
Pet of the Week Gus is pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 4-year-old, 13-pound, male, domestic short hair cat with a black-and-white coat. He was adopted, then returned when he and the resident cat didn’t get along. Gus thought he was playing. The other cat didn’t. Now Gus needs a fresh start in a home without a lot of commotion. He might like living with some kids, if they’re a little older. The $100 adoption fee includes medical exam, neuter, up-to-date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year
license if his new home is in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services. For information about adoption or to become a virtual foster, stop by RCHS at 389 Requeza St., Encinitas, call (760) 7536413, or visit to SDpets. org.

It’s true, people still use business cards ask
mr. marketing rob weinberg
he lowly business card dates back to 15th Century China, when people used them as self-promotional tools. Called “Visiting cards,” they were employed to request meetings or prove credentials. 200 years later they’d morphed into “trade cards” containing promotional information and a map to help customers find a particular business. By the industrial revolution these communications vehicles had evolved into today’s business card; a simple, cost-effective way of helping prospective customers and contacts remember and find you for work.

world in 2018. COVID forced countless meetings to be cancelled, and with it came a 70% drop in global business card production. No surprise, given the lack of in-person networking, growth of contactless transactions, and fear of spreading germs. Based on this, and added to the exponential growth of cell phones, social media, and QR codes, I’d assumed business cards would soon be an extinct marketing tool. Well, you know what happens when you assume! Sales are increasing again, and business cards are

Volunteers must be at least age 50, be in good health, pass a background check, have auto insurance & a valid California driver’s license. Training includes a two week academy plus training patrols.

DEFINITELY not dead. Last night I attended a networking event of about 60 business executives, and was surprised by the business cards being shared. All night long I watched cards changing hands. Some were plain white, others multi-colored. Most were rectangular, some square or round. Large ones stood out, small ones probably got lost. Square corners, round corners, thin and thick. Paper, wood, mylar, and magnetic…I saw them all. Several were clever, while many more were eminently forgettable.
And a few meeting attendees neglected to bring a sufficient supply of cards before recognizing they’d missed an opportunity to be remembered. I liked the die-cut card from the team building firm. Between graphics and the shape, it had a fun feeling that seemed to perfectly reflect the CEO’s style. When I first got into business I was taught two things; • Carry business cards at all times; and • Hand it to business prospects so they can easily find me. Regardless of your business, you should also always be carrying business cards with you. They’re among the least expensive marketing tools at your disposal, are considered a must in certain cultures, and can help reinforce your branding efforts. True, they’re low tech... but sometimes, the simplest solution is the best one. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” — Irish proverb
Horace Mann said, “Teachers teach because they care. Teaching young people is what they do best. It requires long hours, patience and care.” National Teacher Appreciation Day falls on Tuesday, May 3rd this year and gives us the chance to honor these men and women who care enough to choose teaching as their life’s role. Teachers give of themselves, their minds, their thoughts, their energy, their hearts and all too often, their wallets. They point the way, helping shape the minds and the attitudes of tomorrow’s leaders. We task them with the job of inspiring our students to work, to learn, to achieve ~ a demanding job often made more difficult by the pressures of our modern society and a tight school budget. Teachers accomplish all this, regardless of the various difficulties, because they CARE! Stresses in today’s world add to their challenges. Please support their efforts. Be sure to say thanks each time you see them.

Surf community honors Takayama
t seemed that three quarters of surf history was in one room on April 24. There, at the California Surf Museum, mixed in with hundreds of us mere mortals, were Linda Benson, L.J. Richards, Ilima Kalama, Joey Buran, Joey Cabell and other wave riders who had helped shape our sport. We were gathered to celebrate the life of Donald Moke Takayama. Donald was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Nov. 16, 1943, and left us on Oct. 22, 2012. What he did between those two dates is what separates him from everybody else. As a gremmie, I had photos of Donald stapled to my bedroom wall. He was the king of goofy-footed (right foot forward) surfers, and his left-go-right fade to bottom turn was a ballet built around power and beauty. Donald began mak-

In 1968 he started the short-lived brand, Donald Takayama Surfboards. This venture was followed by his moving from Hermosa Beach to Encinitas where he was part owner of a small board company called MTB (Mulhern, Takayama, Brummet.)

San Diego City Council bans flavored tobacco products in city City’s action follows Encinitas, Solana Beach bans By City News Service
REGION — The San Diego Council passed an ordinance Monday spearheaded by Councilwoman Marni von Wilpert to ban the sale of flavored tobacco
products — including menthol — in the city, effective Jan. 1, 2023. The move follows similar actions in local cities such as Imperial Beach, Encinitas and Solana Beach, along with San Diego County for unincorporated areas. It also comes months before a statewide referendum tackling the issue in November. For von Wilpert, the or-
dinance couldn't wait until the general election. She presented petitions with thousands of signatures from area high school students supporting the ordinance, many of whom would not be of legal age to vote on the November referendum. “Candy flavored tobacco products are intentionally marketed to kids, and today, the San Diego City Council took bold action to

Studio 219 building next door. The first phase of the required capital improvements to the theater will be made to its lobby and Studio 219. At least $500,000 must be used to enhance these two spaces with six additional free-standing bathrooms in the lobby, renovations to Studio 219’s bathroom, new entry doors and glazing at both the lobby and Studio 219 spaces, a new HVAC system, moving the entrance space to the seating area, new concessions and plumbing in the lobby. The second phase requires at least $300,000 to renovate the actual theater space of the building. These changes will include replacing the theater and dressing rooms’ HVAC system, replacing floor and carpeting, upgrading theater sound and lighting equipment, and replacing the seating to accommodate up to 200 people. With only 16 weeks of productions throughout the year, Goodman and board members also want to see more music, comedy and
other events filling the theater with activity. The renovations will help to make this possible. According to Leann Garms, an Oceanside Theatre Company board member, the company has already engaged an architectural firm for those plans. “We’re starting to explore what’s possible to really make it a community venue and just it is sad to walk by and see it’s dark inside,” Garms said. “It’s such a great, historic building, and we’re going to bring in those renovations to activate the building as much as possible.” Garms said hiring Goodman has lifted a “huge weight” off of the board’s shoulders. Before him, the all-volunteer board was responsible for everything. Now, they can focus on other work besides the day-today business details. Oceanside Theatre Company is one of several cultural arts organizations that were recognized by Mayor Esther Sanchez at the April 20 council meeting as part of her proclamation naming April as “Arts, Culture and Creativity Month” in Oceanside.
signs, which continues making beautiful surfboards. While his surfing and board building are the stuff of legends, it was the man himself who made the biggest impact on anyone who ever knew him. I first saw Donald surf in person in Huntington Beach in the 1962 U.S. Championships. I had never seen anyone so fast and agile, and he seemed to move wherever he wanted to on a wave. The next time I saw him surf was during a big south swell at Malibu when he more than held his own against the best surfers of the time, a crew that included Lance Carson, Miki Dora, Dewey Weber and Johnny Fain. It was in the summer of 1971, I first met him. I was walking down to surf Stone Steps when he greeted me, still wet after a surf session and drying himself at the top of the stairs. Unlike many of the surfers of the day, he seemed unaffected by his fame. He nodded and said, “Let me see that board.” I handed him my garage-built surfboard, he checked it closely and said, “Come up to the shop; I want to make you a board.” I floated down those stairs, to the water’s edge,

proved cessation devices that will also be exempt from the ban. Hundreds of speakers spent nearly five hours trying to persuade the city council — which voted 7-2 in favor of the ban — one way or another. Some of the groups presenting their case for the ban included the American Lung Association, the American Cancer Society and Kaiser Perma-

Councilwoman Jennifer Campbell said in her 40 years practicing medicine, she had seen the impact on children who lived in homes with smokers. “If it doesn’t get done at a local level, it will not get done,” she said. “We have to help protect our people.” According to findings presented by von Wilpert’s

Seven days later I returned to pick up a beautiful 6-foot, 10-inch that I wish I still owned. Over the years I would get to know Donald as more than just a great surfer/ shaper. He was a close friend, someone who would
call me at 4 in the morning and could make me laugh even at that hour. He would occasionally float me a new board. I know that many of you reading this have the same stories about our dearly departed brother and friend. He meant so much to so many.

O’side Earth Festival draws hundreds for community clean-up The Plot serves plant-based sushi at annual event By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — More than 600 people showed up at Buccaneer Park on April 23 ready to clean up their community and celebrate the planet during the city’s annual Earth Festival. This is the first year Earth Festival has welcomed visitors in person since the COVID-19 pandemic, during which the festival was held virtually. Around 600 people showed up by 9 a.m. when the event first started and the community clean-up project began. “Everyone took bags with them and went out into the community to pick up trash,” said Colleen

Creek.” Prior to the pandemic, the 12-year-old festival was held downtown, attracting a much larger crowd. The intention of this year’s festival was to downsize and focus on hosting a community event for local families. “It feels more local this way,” Foster said. “Next year we may have several smaller festivals in parks throughout the city
instead of a massive event where people can come clean up the neighborhood and enjoy our parks and beaches while celebrating the Earth.” A handful of local environment-friendly non-profits, city programs and local entrepreneurs showcased their work throughout the festival with activities and crafts lined up for young children and families as well.
The Plot, a plant-based and zero-waste restaurant in Oceanside, served ceviche de la tierra, a plantbased sushi, at the festival. Much of the restaurant’s produce comes from its own garden attached to the restaurant, and all of its “meat” products are completely made with plants – like its spicy tuna made from chickpeas or its sausage and chorizo made with wild rice and lentils.
“Everything is made from scratch and nothing goes in the landfill,” said Jessica Waite, co-founder of The Plot. Suzanne Hume and John Bottorff also showed up with the Sierra Club to represent their own local non-profit, CleanEarth4Kids, which over the last few years has stretched its roots from Oceanside to work with people across the world in England, Greece and beyond to champion clean air and water for all. The group strives to protect air, water, children’s health and the environment as a whole through education. “There are a lot of smart people doing amazing work for the future,” Hume said. “We all need to get on board.” The group plans to
speak at the May 4 Oceanside City Council meeting with requests to stop spraying pesticides, deny chemical storage near elementary schools, stop wood-burning on the city’s beaches and more. Oceanside’s Earth Festival is organized by Green Oceanside, the city’s environmental services and programs that teach residents and businesses how to be good stewards of the earth through watershed protection, water efficiency, zero waste efforts, climate action and energy conservation. Beyond Earth Day and Earth Festival, Foster encourages everyone to clean up any trash lying around every time they visit a local park or beach. “Every little bit counts,” Foster said.
Odds are your pantry holds expired food SENIOR NEWS LINE By Matilda Charles
Is it time to go through your pantry and look for any expired food items that might have been purchased over the past two years? You might be surprised. I sure was. I’d been careful, with new items lined up behind old ones in my cabinets. The problem I just discovered, after picking up a load of curbside items, is the expiration dates of newer items aren’t necessarily better than items that have been in the cabinet for a while. They might be worse. Why, I inquired of our store manager, was a box of
crackers due to expire sooner than the box I bought two months ago? With a sigh, he admitted the problem: The warehouse is having a terrible time getting in anything. And managers have set up their own grocery swap with other nearby stores in the chain, basically bidding on items another store might have. “I’ll give you six boxes of crackers for six half-gallons of whole milk!” Additionally, he said, he’s having a heck of a time getting trained people to work the night shift to stock the shelves correctly. Then, when the curbside pickup people race through the aisles to select items for each
order, they grab from the front ... without looking at expiration dates. Which is a long way of saying: Check your groceries. Either when you pick them up curbside and bring them home or when you take something out of your cabinets, look at the expiration dates and store them accordingly. A helpful note in seeing those expiration dates at home: A black marker is very handy to write expiration dates on packages and cans that can be seen at a glance. No more turning jars over trying to find a date; no more squinting at the tiny print. You’ll have all the dates in large black letters.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 866266-7512 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub. com using the file number assigned to this case 210023311 CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is
to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 866-266-7512 or visit this Internet Web site www. elitepostandpub.com using the file number assigned to this case 21002331-1 CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Santa Rosa resort shows variety, volatility of Mother Nature hit the road e’louise ondash
ometimes Mother Nature can be downright cruel. Just ask Chris Connell, grounds and garden manager at Vintners Resort in Santa Rosa. He and his crew of three planted 10,000 tulips between early January and early February, “with the goal of getting them all to bloom around the same time frame, which ideally would be the end of March and into April,” Connell says. Connell is guiding us around some of Vintners’ 92 acres that make up the long-established resort, a destination for those eager to explore Northern Sonoma County’s wineries and other attractions. The hotel’s annual tulip bloom is a major event that requires fairly precise calculations. “Sometimes this means planting one of the shadier flower beds a week or two weeks ahead of the flower beds that get more sun,” Connell says. “For instance, the front entrance faces west, so I plant the north-facing flower bed two weeks prior to planting the south-facing bed.” So, this part of the Grand Plant went well; what happened next didn’t. “We had a challenging year… with Mother Nature and our tulips,” Connell says with incongruous calm. “First off, most of the month of January and February had above-average temperatures. February had a string of five or six days at 15 to 20 degrees above average. These warmer temps caused our tulips to start growing sooner than anticipated.” This caused about half of the tulips to break ground and begin to form

flowers. Unfortunately, “the warmup was followed by a weeklong cold snap where temps dipped into the high 20s at night. (This) led to some delay in flowering and caused some tulips not to flower at all.” And then… “Mother Nature decided to bring us some much-needed water right when most of our tulips were in full bloom — threefourths of an inch (in a short time).” Upon our arrival at the hotel, we could see how the downpour had surgically decapitated hundreds of the blooms. Oddly, like a post-tornado landscape, there were fully blooming tulip beds standing just feet from the beds with green, leafy stalks still standing but headless. “We order the bulbs from Holland and usual-

ly keep them refrigerated us. “Next year, I think And perhaps order the at least 10 weeks (before we’ll keep them cool for 15 tulips earlier, too. planting),” Connell tells weeks.” “This year we had some
supply-chain problems. During the pandemic, everyone decided to be a gardener. That’s great, but it made it more difficult for us to get what we wanted.” Despite all this, there were still enough tulips intact to satisfy enthusiastic photographers and those who just wanted to revel in the glory of spring. As Connell escorted us about his kingdom, we marveled at the blooms’ variety, brilliance and color, and the perfectness of the survivors. The flowers also stood taller than I remember from springs long ago. “My guess, after a little research is, yes, the tulips are probably taller than they were 50 to 100 years ago,” Connell says. “Tulips have had ongoing breeding and hybridization for well over 500 years in Holland alone.” The Tulip Kingdom is not Connell’s only responsibility. The Vintners’ property supports 300 olive trees that provide oil for the hotel’s three restaurants and for purchase; 97 espaliered fig trees (branches trained to grow on a framework) of five varieties; blackberry bushes; 300 tomato plants of rotating variety; and 20 fruit trees (Asian pears, Gravenstein apples, pluots and Santa Rosa plums). To come next spring: peaches and nectarines. “(My job) is a constant dance of give-and-take that I’m happy to do with Mother Nature,” Connell says thoughtfully. “I don’t look at it as a bad thing when we lose our tulip blooms or plants due to unexpected weather changes. I look at it as a challenge to adapt and try again next year. I’ll work with our bulb provider to find tulip varieties that will hold up better in whatever Mother Nature may throw at us next.” For more photos and conversation, visit www. facebook.com /elouise.ondash.

Three great reasons to start taking music lessons 1. REDUCES STRESS Scientists are now agreeing that learning a musical instrument could be the best way to give your brain a total body workout at any age. Did you also know that it reduces stress too? Music has been shown to reduce stress by triggering biochemical stress reducers according to an article in U.S. Today. As a short-term and long-term benefit, music helps us to relax and forget about life’s daily challenges. The act of playing music accentuates
deep relaxation and calm. 2. IMPROVES MEMORY Taking music lessons has shown increased brain development and also helped improved memory over a year when compared to those who do not receive musical training. Research has also shown that as we get older, our natural memory ability diminishes and music has been shown to help that considerably. 3. MUSIC BRINGS JOY! Quite simply... playing music is fun!
Einstein used to play the violin to relax when he became stuck in his thought process – music helps clear the mind and calm the nerves. It is the gift that keeps on giving. So call your local music school and sign up for lessons! You are never too old to play. Keep asking yourself what instrument have YOU always wanted to play? You might find your music goal reachable with just a phone call away! To learn more, please visit leadingnotestudios.com.

Nine benefits of homeschooling While the pandemic was a disruptor for many families in public education, some parents had the opportunity to homeschool for the first time and were surprised to find that they enjoyed the additional time with their children. Many students found that they liked independent study, allowing them to take personal ownership of their time and schedule. Although the modern homeschool movement in America began in the 1970s, homeschooling has come a long way and the benefits are far reaching. With the choice of a large public school or pricey private school, homeschooling is an option with many benefits. 1. SAFE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT With school safety incidents on the rise, increased bullying, drug use, and the drawbacks of social media, learning in a home environment removes these stresses and brings families closer together. Children are free to learn, explore, and grow without the concern for their physical or emotional safety. 2. FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE Having a flexible schedule allows students to learn when, where, and how they learn best. Having the flexibility to adjust the learning environment leads to more impactful learning.
3. FREEDOM TO INCORPORATE MORALS AND VALUES Many families enjoy the freedom to incorporate personal morals, values, and beliefs into their daily routine.
7. ABILITY TO PURSUE TALENTS AND INTERESTS Students have increased time to pursue interests, such as music, art, theater, sports, and more. Additional time can lead to mastery in a sport or instru4.

Monserate: Fallbrook’s new destination winery taste of wine frank mangio & rico cassoni
ade Work, owner of Monserate Winery in Fallbrook, grew up in the Gird Valley area playing golf at the Fallbrook Golf Course dotted with 100-year-old oaks and towering sycamore trees. In 2016, when the 56-year-old property closed due to hard times, Jade and his wife and co-owner, Julie Work, knew the open area was destined for something big. It is fitting and ironic that Jade’s career included his becoming a pro golfer and then later creating a golf course construction company, Integrity Golf. Later that year, the Works put an offer in to rescue the property from a Beverly Hills speculator with a track record of purchasing distressed golf courses to build sprawling housing developments. Additionally, since purchasing the property, the Works have been able to establish a conservation easement guaranteeing the space remains undeveloped. The dilapidated and shuttered golf course went months without being watered, killing all the grass. It would have taken millions of dollars to replant grass and reestablish the irrigation. After pouring over spreadsheets for hours, when the Works purchased the property in late 2016 for more than $4 million, they decided to turn the 116-acre property into a vineyard
MONSERATE WINERY owners Jade and Julie Work transformed the now defunct Fallbrook Golf Course into a vineyard and winery in the Gird Valley. The couple’s two sons also work at the destination winery, which produced more than 178 tons of fruit last year from a variety of grapes, including vermentino, petite sirah, montepulciano, fiano, barbera and falanghina. Photos courtesy of The Village News/Monserate Winery
and winery. In 2018, after many meetings with county planners to “grease the skids,” Jade submitted plans to transform the former golf course into a state-of-theart destination location. Plans include the main facility that houses a commercial kitchen to support a restaurant and tasting room with outdoor patios as well as a 41-foot decorative tower along with three events centers. One event center is dedicated to wine production including a barrel room, crush pads, and bottle storage room that will also provide bridal/groom suites. Another event center also accommodates brides and grooms with accouterments for guests. A third venue also provides bride/ groom suites as well as a barn for events.
With land in hand, plans in the works, it was now time to find a winemaker, especially one skilled in viticulture. Justin Mund, a graduate of Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo with degrees in viticulture and fruit science, found the Works and the Works found Mund. With extensive experience in winemaking and wine growing from Sonoma County to the Central Coast and more than a decade in San Diego County, he was a perfect fit for Monserate. Frank and I have known Justin for years and were excited when he reached out to us for a tour at Monserate. “I was excited to come to Monserate to focus on planting, growing, and making estate Italian wine using state-of-the-art irrigation and trellising,” Mund said.
Last year marked the first full production year for Monserate and the vintage produced more than 178 tons of fruit. Mund said he loves the location of Monserate in the Gird Valley, noting, “The north winds drain into the valleys, and along with the Santa Margarita River, keeps the area cool.” During our tour, Justin was kind enough to take us through eight barrel samples starting with the 2021 Monte Luna (White Moon). Despite it being 100% Montepulciano, the saigneestyle winemaking with stainless steel fermentation keeps this wine white in color with hints of peaches and crisp acidity. Next, we had the Fiore, an estate-grown 100% falanghina with tropical notes. We then tried a new wine, the Greco di Tufo, that

had some stainless fermentation and barrel fermentation in new French Oak. We all loved this honey-colored beauty that should be a big hit. We then shifted over to the reds sampling the following 2021s: Barbera; Montepulciano with big fruit taste; Sagrantino with bold flavors of black, blue and red fruit with espresso on the nose and will benefit from the tannins continuing to settle; Aglianico with hints of anise and licorice, and a late harvest montepulciano dessert wine that was already tasting great. Joining us in the barrel room was Josh Work, vice president of Monserate. I suspect that Jade and Julie love the fact that two of their sons work closely with them. Another son, Joel, heads up Monserate’s wine tasting room. Following the barrel room tasting, Josh and Joel had some of their delicious pizzas ready for us in the tasting room. The crust was light and airy using double-zero flour (finely ground Italian flour) that rested for a couple of days. We enjoyed the meatball, margherita, and pesto pizzas. During our feast, we continued our red wine tasting with the 2019 Fedele, a red blend of montepulciano, aglianico, sagrantino and negroamaro, 2020 Cellar Select Montepulciano and Monserate’s flagship 2019 petite sirah that Mund says, “Stains your teeth, clothes and soul.” While Monserate continues to evolve its Fallbrook gem, it currently has much to offer for weddings, private events, wine, and food that will continue to
refine into its destination winery. Thank you for the red carpet treatment. More information at monseratewinery.com.

Beer Spotlight: Paige McWey Acers
By Jeff Spanier
t the end of March, the I Like Beer Team was lucky enough to sit down with Paige McWey Acers, executive director of the San Diego Brewers Guild. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the San Diego Brewers Guild is committed to growing and strengthening the craft beer community. McWey Acers was kind enough to bring along some beer from Thorn Brewing Company, and over a couple of beers, we were able to hear her story. ILB: Welcome to our show! Paige: Thank you for having me. ILB: What should we start with? Paige: The Thorn Brewing Michelada. It’s their Barrio Lager with pure tomato juice, lime juice, ocean clam juice, Worcester sauce, and hot sauce. It’s a good summertime beer. ILB: Paige, tell us a little about your journey in the craft beer industry. Paige: Yes. I am coming up on my ninth year with the Guild. Prior to being with the Guild, I worked in a law firm. And I worked at a craft-centric restaurant in North Park right when that was booming on 30th Street. And so I had been exposed to the industry, and we would have beer dinners, and the brewers would come in. And I really liked having that community-driven industry be a part of the restaurant. I found the San Diego Brewers Guild was looking for an administrator to help with their organization, daily tasks — that type of thing. And then, as the position grew, I became full-time, and I’m still here. ILB: We just read about the 2022 San Diego Brewers Guild hop blend that has been created in celebration of the Guild’s 25th anniversary. Congratulations on that! Paige: Yes, we’re excited to get some beers made out of that release this summer. ILB: Ok, on the topic of drinking great beers, we are not going to put you on the spot to pick your favorite brewery, but let’s ask this: what’s your go-to beer style? Paige: Brown ales. Definitely a gateway beer for entering craft beers. Not a lot of them around… the Alesmith Nutbrown. [You] can’t go wrong with that beer. It’s definitely a staple for me. And Pizza Port Chronic is another one, an amber, but another favorite. ILB: Tell us a little about the goals and vision of the San Diego Brewers Guild.

Paige: We are a trade association, so the breweries are members of our organization, and we serve our members by providing advocacy, when needed, educational programs, marketing, and promotion. ILB: That’s all the good stuff. Let’s get to something serious. Coming out of very needed and honest reports of mistreatment of women, people of color, and other minority groups last summer, what role has the Guild played in helping make the brewery industry a fair, safe environment for everyone? Paige: Going back to education, we’ve created two very important educational sessions for our members. One is women in beer, where we’re going to have a panel of women and men to talk about the roles women play in the industry, how they can advocate for themselves, and how allies can advocate for them. How can women continue to play an important part in the industry as they have over the last several years? We also have bystander training: a workshop where brewery employees will have an opportunity to go through this training to learn how to properly react when they are witnessing something [inappropriate]. ILB: That’s great work. Paige: Yes, giving people the tools to feel empowered to say something is really important. We want to continue to provide educational opportunities like those two sessions. We also put together a code of conduct that we’re releasing to our members that will be accompanied by resources for both employers and employees, and guests. So if they are to witness something, or be exposed to something, or have an experience that they need to report, we want to make sure that people have the types of resources that they felt like they didn’t have before. And we want to be able to provide that as a value to our membership, but also our overall community.

Oceanside’s Seaborne Coffee floats my boat By Ryan Woldt
Coffee: Single origin Guatemala from Revolution Roasters; Tasting notes: nutty, milk chocolate, smooth; Price: $3.52 after tax; What I’m listening to: Fruit Bats, “Cazadera.” The threat of rain mingles with the musk of the marine layer fog. Clouds waver on the precipice between breaking up and condensing into dark mountains. It is a gloomy morning spring morning
in Southern California. Perfect for stopping into a coffee shop for a warmer. Seaborne Coffee is part of The Rising Company community co-op. Along with a dozen indie merchants and a Roark clothing boutique, they inhabit a concrete building painted bright white on the Coast Highway just south of Oceanside’s downtown. The inside is inviting, warm, and comfortable. Surf photography covers the back wall. The menu is painted in block letters on the wall
behind the counter. I order a batch brew cup of coffee. Curtis, a barista, pours it into my mug with some kindly chatter. It is a single origin Guatemala roast from Revolution Roasters just down the road. A pelican holding a coffee cup (the Seaborne logo) gives me the side-eye from a window. My coffee is quite enjoyable with a big, bold flavor featuring smooth milk chocolate, a hint of caramel, and a subtle nutty finish. The clouds decide
parting is in their best interest. The sun breaks through, flooding the patio with warmth. Seaborne Coffee features a modern yet casual design. The cafe is comfortable, but you know someone is paying attention to the details. Roast! San Diego, or The Bean Journal, is a new column by Ryan Woldt, host of the Roast!

ego Police Department for their above-board operations. Several also decried the paternalistic nature of the city council’s new law, saying parents should be in charge of how children were raised, not the government. In response to the loss of income, Councilman Joe LaCava said he wanted to find a remedy for businesses who were selling a product that was “legal today and illegal tomorrow.” “I would ask our liaisons in Sacramento to find a way for relief for these small businesses,” he said. Council members Chris
Cate and Vivian Moreno were the two no votes on the ordinance, although they cited different reasons. For Moreno, she said she believed it made little sense to pass a local ordinance just months before the voters of California would decide in the November election. She said a far more effective strategy would be to increase enforcement of existing laws rather than adding more regulations to small businesses. She asked the SDPD to bring forward an enforcement plan on the matter. Cate said he believed the ban would not prevent
youth from illegally purchasing and consuming tobacco products, but drive them back to traditional cigarettes, use of which has dropped among younger generations in the past decade. “It is wrong to believe that this is the silver bullet we have been looking for,'' he said. He also noted the hypocrisy of banning a legal product when the city council just months previously reduced taxes for cannabis businesses sent a message to small businesses that the city clearly favored one over the other.

The Petition for Probate requests that John David Kirkland be appointed as personal representative to

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.)

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: May 12, 2022; Time: 1:30 PM; in Dept.: 502. Court address: 1100 Union St., San Diego CA 92101, Central Courthouse - Probate.

either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code.

APRIL 29, 2022
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You’ve come through a difficult period of helping others deal with their problems. Now you can concentrate on putting your energy to work on your own projects.
1. LANGUAGE: What is the practice of chiromancy? 2. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: What is unusual about the date the Chinese New Year is celebrated each year? 3. ACRONYMS: What phrase does “http” stand for? 4. MUSIC: Which Beatles’ song asks listeners to “take a sad song and make it better”? 5. TELEVISION: What is the name of SpongeBob Squarepants’ best friend in the animated series? 6. GEOGRAPHY: Nairobi is the capital of which African country? 7. MOVIES: Which two male actors starred in “The Sting” (1973)? 8. ANIMAL KINGDOM: What is a baby oyster called? 9. HISTORY: In its planning stages, which World War II attack was coined “Operation Z” by the Japanese? 10. LITERATURE: During which war is the novel “All the Light We Cannot See” set?
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The often-skeptical Aries might find that an answer to a question is hard to believe. But check it out before you chuck it out. You might well be surprised at what you could learn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your resolute determination to stick by a position might make some people uncomfortable. But if you’re proved right (as I expect you to be), a lot of changes will tilt in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel conflicted between what you want to do and what you should do. Best advice: Honor your obligations first. Then go ahead and enjoy your well-earned rewards. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That financial matter still needs to be sorted out before you can consider any major monetary moves. Pressures ease midweek, with news about a potential career change. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A workplace problem threatens to derail your well-planned project. But your quick mind should lead you to a solution and get you back on track without too much delay. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) An opportunity opens up but could quickly close down if you allow pessimism to override enthusiasm. A trusted friend can offer the encouragement you need.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Forget about who’s to blame and, instead, make the first move toward patching up a misunderstanding before it creates a rift that you’ll never be able to cross. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Good news for the travel-loving Sagittarian who enjoys galloping off to new places: That trip you had to put off will soon be back on your schedule. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A mood change could make the gregarious Goat seek the company of just a few friends. But you charge back into the crowd for weekend fun and games. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A decision you made in good faith could come under fire. Best advice: Open your mind to other possibilities by listening to your challenger’s point of view. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You can avoid being swamped by all those tasks dangling from your line this week by tackling them one by one, according to priority. The weekend brings good news. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a fine business sense and a love of the arts. You enjoy living life to its fullest. © 2022 King Features Synd., Inc.
