By Laura Place

DEL MAR — A judge granted a preliminary injunction Tuesday preventing Ray Cammack Shows from carrying out its midway contract at the 2022 San Diego County Fair, acknowledging there is enough evidence to suggest the contract process was rigged in violation of state public contract code. The injunction is the latest development in an ongoing lawsuit between the 22nd District Agricultural Association and Talley Amusements, a Texas-based carnival operator alleging corruption, favoritism and bid-rigging during the Fairgrounds’ selection process of a master carnival operator for last year’s county fair, which was ultimately canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. Despite the legal battle which began last year, the 22nd DAA granted the midway contract to Ray Cammack Shows on Jan. 31. John Moot, an attorney representing Talley Amusements, filed a renewed motion for a preliminary injunction, alleging the request for proposal, or RFP, was altered from the previous year to include minimum experience and qualifications that could only be met by Ray Cammack Shows. In his ruling, Judge Kenneth J. Medel stated that TURN TO FAIR ON 9

Leucadia residents protest fencing, lack of rail crossing  Locals say rail fence is a barrier to beach access By Steve Wyer

ENCINITAS — Residents are voicing frustration over the North County Transit District's installation of a fence along the rail corridor in northwest Leucadia and calling for city officials to establish a pedestrian rail crossing to CONSTRUCTION WORK is ongoing along the railroad mitigate safety hazards. corridor near the El Portal undercrossing in Leucadia. In mid-April, the tranPhoto by Jordan P. Ingram sit district will continue

building a wooden post and cable railing fence (42 inches in height) along the railroad in Encinitas that will run from approximately Encinitas Boulevard in the south all the way north to La Costa Avenue, a roughly 2.3-mile stretch. The fence is set to be completed at the end of July and will cost approximately $2.35 million in funding, according to an agency spokesperson. The purpose of the new boundary is to reduce the number of fatalities, accidents and train service disruptions attributable to

trespassing over the railroad, the NCTD said. Encinitas, along with Del Mar and Oceanside, is one of the top three cities for railway trespassing in North County. But locals say that by installing the fence, the regional transit agency is creating a barrier of access dividing Leucadians located on the east side of the railroad from the beaches, businesses, and residences on the west side, and vice versa.

Bringing out the Beauty in You

Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt as if you had known them for years? That is how it is with Amy Tovar, the owner of The Hair Spa in Carlsbad Village. Amy’s warm Amy, owner and engaging personality, along with her incredible enthusiasm for her new business, can’t help but put a smile on your face. The Hair Spa has been a Village staple since the mid 1990’s. It is that kind of place where professionals can put down roots (no pun intended). The former owner, Tania, was at the helm for 26 years, and still works at The Hair Spa with Amy, who bought the salon one year ago this month. Amy, who has 18 years’ experience in the industry, worked there previously, becoming fast friends with Tania, fell in love with the salon, and recently returned to take ownership. “I never thought I’d be buying a salon in the middle of a pandemic,” Amy said. “But the timing seemed right, and this is something I have wanted to do. This salon has always been my happy place.” With her supportive husband, Richard, at her side during this pivotal career move, she was able to turn her dream into a reality during the toughest of times. Amy goes on to say, “I feel so blessed to call this place my own.” With The Hair Spa, Amy has created an environment where her clients feel pampered and can forget about life’s daily stresses. The interior is light and bright but cozy at the same time. It has a tropical feel that mirrors Carlsbad’s upscale beach community. It is a fitting theme since Amy met her husband-to-be at Tamarack Beach just a short walk away from the salon. The salon team of four stylists specializes in color, cuts, blowouts (including Brazilian blowouts), deep conditioning treatments, and even brow and upper lip waxing, while you process, for that complete spa feel. Men will not feel out of place at The Hair Spa, and walk-ins are welcome. “I love to enhance my clients’ natural beauty with seamless and easy cuts and color that will grow out well,” Amy said. “Our hair is our most visible accessory; I never want a client to feel like a prisoner to their hair. I want them to feel good, with shiny, healthy hair, and a style that reflects their inner beauty.” The Hair Spa offers luxurious products such as Semi di Lino, ELEVEN Australia, and Colorproof. They also feature Halocouture Professional hair extensions. Nestled among the businesses just adjacent to the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, with Norte Mexican Food on one side and the Daily News Café on the other, The Hair Spa is conveniently located in downtown Carlsbad, just a block from the beach. 3001 Carlsbad Blvd. Ste. #D thehairspashop.com

Carlsbad survey weighs revenue ideas

One Safe Place soon to open in San Marcos

By Steve Puterski

By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The City of Carlsbad is conducting a randomized survey among a selection of residents to gauge whether they’d prefer either a one-cent sales tax increase or legalizing recreational marijuana as a potential municipal revenue source. Jason Haber, the city’s intergovernmental affairs director, said the Carlsbad City Council directed staff last year to come up with new revenue streams after learning expenditures are forecasted to outpace revenues within five years, according to the city’s 10year forecast. The email survey asks hundreds of residents their preference between a one-cent tax increase earning up to $20 million annually or legalizing cannabis (medicinal or recreational) to help pay for capital improvement projects and day-to-day services. While the council could legalize cannabis after voters approved Proposition 64 in 2016, which legalized recreational marijuana statewide, the tax must be approved by voters. In Carlsbad, 56% of voters supported Prop 64. The survey results, along with any possible action, will be discussed during the council’s April 20 workshop. “That’ll cover the results of the revenue study survey and cover the (Capital Improvement Program) prioritization that council has requested,” Haber said of the workshop. “What we want to talk to council about, is understanding their priorities for the major projects in terms of what order of priority do they hold them.” Haber said the city's Capital Improvement Program has a budget of $56.2 million for the Fiscal Year 2021-22, which includes more than $23 million for a total of 21 projects, including modernizing roads, improving traffic and repairs. The program's funding plan, Haber added, covers 15 years, which- includes the City Council’s goals along with 254 other projects. According to the FY 2021-22 budget, the city has an estimated $669 TURN TO SURVEY ON 33

Life of music, service  O’side pianist

devoted to faith, music, healing By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Family and community remember the life of a longtime Oceanside resident and pianist Cecelia Bañez Mondero, who carried on her father’s legacy by serving others through music. Mondero passed away on Jan. 26. She was 82 years old. Mondero’s father, Juan Bañez, first introduced his daughter to music at the young age of 3. She had been born in 1939 in Dagupan City, Philippines, so by this time the world was well into the Second World War. Her father was a teacher, composer and concert pianist who is known today as the pianist who reconstructed Francisco Santiago’s Piano Concerto following the original’s destruction. When Mondero was 5 years old, United States soldiers created a makeshift stage for her to play patriotic songs like “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” on the piano in celebration of the Philippines’ liberation from Japanese occupation. From then on, music would become a central part of Mondero’s life. Mondero’s family eventually immigrated to the United States. Just like her father, Mondero went on to earn several degrees including a bachelor’s degree from Holy Names University, a master’s

degree in musical public performance from the University of Redlands, another master’s in music education from the University of California Berkeley and a third master’s in music therapy at West Texas A&M University. Mondero moved to Oceanside in 1981 with her husband, Lito, and sons Eric, Glen and Joel. Throughout her life, she worked as music teacher, pianist and choir director. A devout Catholic, she also played at local Oceanside churches like St. Mary, Star of the Sea and St. Margaret Parish. “Music was part of her everyday life,” said Trish Jones, Mondero’s daughterin-law. “She had multiple pianos in the house, and pretty much up until the last couple of months before passing she would always sit down and play.” Jones recalls her mother-in-law playing music from memory around Christmastime, about a month before she died. “She was listening to ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and said she really wanted to play something from it,” Jones said. “She listened to it and played it from memory – she had a perfect ear.” Mondero also liked to share her music with others not just through teaching but also as therapy. She would frequently play the piano at Bread of Life Rescue Mission. “Music is part of everyone’s soul,” Mondero said in a 2017 article in The Osider. “Music calms the body, mind and soul.

The opportunity to share a few notes is a love and passion for music that’s indescribable.” The Oceanside pianist's love for music didn’t distract her from taking care of her family. The family had previously owned the Sandpiper at Buccaneer Beach (known as Buccaneer Galley today), a bus station diner and a food truck that they would take to various construction sites across town during lunchtime. Since music didn’t always pay well, she had a knack for finding various side jobs to help raise her sons and eventually put them through college – all the while continuing her passion. “She was fearless and fierce,” Jones said.

SAN MARCOS — A family justice center for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking will soon have a dedicated facility in North County. One Safe Place is a 44,000 square-foot facility with 54 partners, 30 of whom will be on-site, District Attorney Summer Stephan previously told the Carlsbad City Council. The new North County location, which is tentatively scheduled to open in late April or early May, is located at 1050 Los Vallecitos Road in San Marcos. Stephan did not respond to requests for comment in time for publication. One Safe Place will provide a variety of services, such as case management, therapy, restraining orders, housing navigation, child welfare, job placement, clothing and food, transportation, workforce readiness, educational opportunities and immigration services. The center will also have dedicated spaces for children and teenagers, room for court appearances to mitigate secondary trauma and office space for police officers and Sheriff’s deputies. “It will provide services and prevent victims from remaining in cycles of abuse,” Stephan told the council in February. “Unfortunately, I noticed that there is a lack of service for victims of crime in the north region. This has been a dream

for 15 years and we began working on this three years ago.” San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones said the facility covers a wide spectrum of crimes and services but was thrilled with the addition of seniors who are victims of elder abuse. She said elder services are rare and typically not included in such facilities. “It’s just going to be an amazing place,” Jones added. “Everyone will have an opportunity to come in. If you need help, they’re going to get it for you.” Currently, there is only one facility in the county, which is currently in the city of San Diego, which has created challenges for self-reporting victims that have been difficult to overcome, Stephan said. “This is a daunting task,” Stephan said. “For victims of trauma, they’re barely functioning. They’re trying to get through their day. It’s almost an impossibility.” Stephan also said North County’s domestic violence reports account for 27% of the entire county. Domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness among mothers with children — more than 80% of homeless mothers previously experienced domestic violence. “Unfortunately, abuse is on the rise,” Jones said. “It’s definitely needed in North County and I’m glad we really had a place to locate it. It’s strategically located so everyone can have access.”

The women behind van Gogh’s art, legacy

R

By Sheila Cameron

ecently, I surrounded myself with the artwork of Vincent van Gogh in a truly wonderful immersive experience depicting his art, color and light at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. I found myself asking, “How did Vincent van Gogh’s art survive and occupy his niche so beloved in the history of art today?” More research revealed the determination and devotion of Johanna van GoghBonger, often referred to as “the other van Gogh.” Johanna was the wife of Theo van Gogh, a successful art dealer and Vincent’s younger brother. Johanna soon came to realize, understand and respect a deep bond between the two brothers — a bond that came to be shared by the three of them. Prior to their marriage, Johanna, also from the Netherlands, studied English and attained the equivalent of a college degree before teaching at a pair of girls-only schools. At some point, Johanna’s brother Andries introduced her to Theo van Gogh and they were married in April 1889. The newlyweds moved to Paris where she was surrounded by an exciting new world of art and artists. The couple’s son, Vincent Willem, was born the following year. Johanna was to describe these 21 months as the happiest and most enlivening period of her life. Theo supported the family, which allowed Vincent to devote all his time to painting. Johanna shared in this generous spirit and commitment to the artist’s work. Sadly, Vincent passed away at the age of 37 and his brother, Theo, died just six months later in January 1891. He was 33 years old. Johanna would describe the 21 months of marriage to Theo as the happiest and most enlivening period of her life.

Johanna was left with an infant son, 400 paintings by Vincent van Gogh, 200 drawings, approximately 2,100 letters from Vincent to his brother Theo and another few hundred of Theo’s letters to Vincent. The translation of these letters began the lifelong work by Johanna to illuminate Vincent’s words and spread his art to the world. Johanna relocated to Bussum, a village in the Netherlands, opening a boarding house to support herself and her young son. She reestablished her artistic contacts and worked hard to translate the Van Gogh brothers’ letters from Dutch to French and later, English. Johanna also organized exhibitions of Vincent’s canvases and loaned his art to exhibitions around the world. She published the first three volumes of the brothers’ letters in 1914. These published letters revealed Vincent’s expression and interpretations of his paintings, which gives us deep insight into his passion while creating his art. In 1915, Johanna moved to New York City, translating Vincent’s letters into English and attempting to develop the American interest in his art. She left disappointed in 1919, but soon Vincent’s work was acquired by American museums. Today, “Starry, Starry Night” – at first one of his most ridiculed, and now most beloved canvases — hangs in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Johanna kept almost all of Vincent’s paintings, hanging some of the works in her home and keeping others in a walk-in closet. In 1959, her son, Vincent Willem, negotiated with the Dutch government to take over the collection and protect it in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Today, van Gogh’s descendants own none of the

artist’s works, stating the art is for the world to see. Helene Kröller-Müller, a German art collector and philanthropist, is another woman whose life and passion for Vincent’s art helped create his legacy. Although these two women were contemporaries, there is no indication they ever met. The nexus between them was through the wellknown art dealers Cassirer and Bremmer, whom Johanna van Gogh-Bonger entrusted with much of Vincent’s art, and who also sold a large number of van Gogh’s works to Kröller-Müller. In fact, Kröller-Müller was one of the first collectors to recognize the genius of van Gogh, amassing more than 90 van Gogh paintings and 185 drawings — second only to the collection of the aforementioned Van Gogh Museum. Kröller-Müller also amassed works by modern artists such as Picasso, Braque, Diego Rivera, and Seurat, Paul Gabriel, among many others. In 1935, Kröller-Müller and her husband, Anton Kröller, donated their entire collection, over 12,000 “objets d’art,” to the Dutch people and opened their property to the public in 1938. The couple’s 75-acre estate, home to the Kröller-Müller Museum in Hoge Veluwe National Park, is Netherlands’ largest national park. Without the grace and existence of these two women — one who saved, documented, translated and shared van Gogh’s art and the other whose buying power, art appreciation and generosity amassed a national collection — we might be saying: Vincent who? Beyond van Gogh has been extended to May 6 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Sheila S. Cameron is a former Encinitas mayor and council member.

alifornia regulators are in the habit of assessing what look like gigantic fines on the state’s largest public utilities. But the utilities don’t even blink when forced to fork over nine-figure amounts to pay for their misdeeds. What the state’s Public Utilities Commission did in February, with two new acting members — one shy of a majority on the five-person commission — shows just why these big companies don’t bat an eye when penalized: They know they’ll get the money back, and then some, the next time the commission considers a rate increase. In February, just such an increase went to Pacific Gas & Electric Co., which only two months earlier was assessed a $125 million penalty for its actions that helped cause the 2019 Kincade fire in Sonoma County that sparked massive evacuations and did at least $600 million damage to homes and other property. So PG&E’s fine came to less than a quarter of the damage it caused. The amount would hurt or at least sting almost any other company. But PG&E went on as if nothing had changed. The PUC soon showed why the sanguine attitude of utility executives was right on the money. That’s when the commissioners gave PG&E a 9% rate increase to compensate for rising natural gas prices. If the commission really wanted to hurt PG&E and not merely give the appearance of assessing a penalty, it would have forced the company to foot part of that expense itself, hitting shareholders and executives where it hurts. Instead, it will be electricity and gas customers who get hurt. The average residential PG&E customer will see an increase of about $14 per month to about $166. Overall, PG&E will get about $974 million more from its customers in the first year this increase is in effect. No mechanism was set up for rate reductions when prices drop. Why would the cost of natural gas affect electric rates? Because most California power is produced in plants burning natural gas fuel. Southern California Edison customers can expect similar treatment. That company last September was fined slightly more than $500 million for its role in five big fires during 2017 and 2018. Edison also fires gen-

erators mostly with natural gas, so its customers, too, can anticipate a compensatory rate increase. Meanwhile, both big companies are approaching the end of their general rate increase cycles, with PG&E first in line to boost prices again by somewhere around 10% or more before year’s end. That would give the company at least $1.9 billion in added revenue beyond the many billions it was already taking in. And the more transmission lines it builds to bring power from solar thermal farms in California’s deserts to its existing system, the more profits it will add, since utility companies in this state generally get 10% profit or more guaranteed for every customer dollar they spend on capital improvements. All this is very like taxation without representation, for the consequences of non-payment make utility rates feel like taxes. There is only one constituent for the PUC members these days: Gavin Newsom, the governor who has appointed four of them. Newsom has taken tens of millions of dollars over the years in campaign donations from PG&E and its brethren. By law, Newsom should not have much power over the commission, even if he did appoint its members. That’s because PUC members and judges are the only appointees no governor can fire. But under Newsom, things work differently. The last two PUC presidents have been former Newsom aides. One word from him is enough to completely change the commission’s supposedly well-considered policies. So it was that a word of doubt from the governor caused the PUC to return to the drawing board to redesign a rooftop solar policy change it was on the verge of adopting in January. This is all sleight of hand favoring the utilities. Regulators fine the companies millions for their misdeeds, then give them billions in rate increases. Which makes the fines phony even if they are collected (and some reportedly never are). Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Harbor nixes Del Mar council adopts ‘anti-nepotism’ policy safety plan due to costs By Laura Place

By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Last month, the city’s Harbor and Beaches Advisory Committee rejected a newly proposed safety plan after learning of the costs related to staffing fire and lifeguard personnel overnight at the harbor. Since 2020, city staff has been working on a new safety plan for Oceanside Harbor after a stakeholder first circulated a plan to shift harbor public services away from the police department to a reorganized lifeguard team. In that plan, referred to as “Option No. 6,” lifeguards would have a 24/7 presence at the harbor. The plan was presented to the harbor advisory committee in November last year, along with another plan to revert back to using the harbor’s own patrol unit and a third plan proposing 24-hour lifeguard and firefighter services. The harbor, a separate entity from the city, pays the city’s police department more than $2 million annually to provide public safety services. But since the cost for those services is expected to rise to $2.8 million in July, trimming the budget has been the committee’s top priority. Both Option No. 6 and the fire/lifeguard models were favored by the committee over the proposal to return to the old safety model, which staff determined would cost the same as the harbor’s current contract with Oceanside Police. In March, Interim City Manager Jonathan Borrego and staff recommended the advisory committee choose the fire/lifeguard model, which would provide 10 new personnel in the harbor including a supervising lifeguard lieutenant, three lifeguard sergeants, three beach lifeguards and three fire captains. The team would provide 24/7 coverage through 24-hour shifts, with each shift having one lifeguard sergeant, beach lifeguard and fire captain. wing small atBut theadvisory bottom: committee members weren’t happy once they learned of this nails • Marianne Hawkins - hair model’s associated costs. For overnight services, the plan son - Hair • Patricia Elliot - Sacalled for a trailer for the team’s overnight living accommodations and a garage to store service vehicles and equipment, all of which would cost over $800,000. “I was just astonished by how much it was going to cost to have living quarters,” said Chair Liz Rhea. Rhea said the final recommendation raised too many unanswered questions, such as labor costs, which wouldn’t be determined until later. She also questioned the need to have additional fire personnel stationed at the harbor. The committee rejected the proposal in a 6-3 vote on March 21. Staff is expected to come back to the committee in June with refined safety proposals.

DEL MAR — Significant others and immediate family members of Del Mar City Council members can no longer serve concurrently on the city’s Design Review Board or Planning Commission under a new “anti-nepotism” policy adopted by the council Monday evening. The amendment to City Council Policy 200 was approved in a 4-1 vote, with Mayor Dwight Worden dissenting. Since 2019, the policy has only required council members to recuse themselves when voting on an appointment to the Planning Commission or Design Review Board when their significant other or spouse is an applicant. Policy language now restricts any council member’s “parent, child, spouse, significant other, or sibling” from serving on the two bodies during the term of the councilmember, and requires the resignation of board or commission members whose immediate family member or significant other is elected to the city council. “I think it reflects what I would like to see and I know a whole lot of members of the public would like to see,” Councilman Dave Druker said. “The bodies need to be separate.” The City Council is responsible for appointing individuals to both the Design Review Board and Planning Commission, and both make decisions that are occasionally appealed to the council. Druker and Councilwoman Terry Gaasterland first pushed for the policy amendments to be adopted back in 2019, as the community scrutinized the fact

However, an opposing council majority kept the widespread ban from moving forward, and council members were only required to recuse themselves from appointments when their significant other was a candidate. Gaasterland called Monday’s policy amendment a “step in the right direction.” “The last time this came to us, I was very supportive and I remain supportive,” she said. “Recognizing that our city is small and that we have a small pool of people ready to contribute, that makes this resolution even more important.” Worden stood alone in criticizing the proposed

policy, which he said could exclude qualified individuals from serving the city – especially since roles on city commissions and committees are unpaid – and require the government to scrutinize people’s relationships with their significant others. He added that there are sufficient rules on the books to prevent conflicts of interest. “It’s not a problem in Del Mar, but we are likely to have created some problems with the new policy we have,” he said. “What we’re talking about in Del Mar is grown adults volunteering their time. They’re

not getting paid, they're not getting hired, and all those nepotism rules don't apply to the circumstance.” If a council member were dating someone who decided to run for a seat on one of the two bodies or vice-versa, Worden said, the city would be tasked with determining how serious the relationship is. “That’s inviting the government into people’s bedrooms, to ask them those kinds of questions,” he said. Acting City Clerk Sarah Krietor said those situations would be evaluated on a case-by-case basis,

likely with the guidance of the city attorney’s office. While the original policy amendment presented to the council limited the restriction to those sharing a residence with a council member, the council voted to expand it to those in a separate residence. At this time, Krietor said she is not aware of any existing relationships that would require a Design Review Board or Planning Commission member to step down following the November election when Gaasterland and Worden’s seats will be on the ballot since the filing period does not begin until July. “As of right now, I’m not aware of any conflicts because there are no candidates yet. We’ll have to cross that bridge when we come to it,” Krietor said. Resident Laura Demarco advocated during public comment for the council to go a step further and apply the policy to the other bodies such as the finance committee and Parks and Recreation Committee. “It is better to eliminate conflicts of interest rather than to create more. This would implicitly allow any relative of a city council member to sit on the finance committee or Parks and Rec committee. You’re only restricting nepotism to the Design Review Board and planning commission,” Demarco said.

SDUHSD community criticizes ‘disingenuous’ hearing By Laura Place

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District board once again voted against rescinding a controversial redistricting map in a split vote on Wednesday, despite an ongoing lawsuit alleging violations of the California Voting Rights Act and pleas from community members for leaders to start the process over in good faith. This marks the second meeting in which the board has scheduled a public hearing to reconsider the adoption of Map 8 and still voted to keep it in place, with the Republican majority of trustees — Michael Allman, Maureen Mo Muir and Melisse Mossy — maintaining control in a 3-2 vote. Trustees Julie Bronstein and Katrina Young, both Democrats, advocated heavily for the board to rescind the map, cure and correct alleged Brown Act violations, and accept the San Diego County Office of Education’s offer to take over the process. “This process has gotten so wonky that I think we would be better off having the San Diego County Office of Education handling it at this point,” said board member Julie Bronstein. The Office of Education was still reviewing the actions taken by the school board regarding the map as of Thursday, spokeswoman Jennifer Rodriguez said.

GERRYMANDERING?

The lawsuit regarding the map was filed by two district parents in February and alleges that the map disenfranchises a third of voters, particularly the Hispanic and Asian communities in Carmel Valley and Solana Beach which are split into multiple areas on the map, and gerrymanders areas 5 and 2 to target specific board members. Due to the significant redrawing of boundaries in the map, Bronstein would have to run for re-election in Area 3 with a completely different population than those in area 5 who elected her to the board via special election last year. In addition, the locations of areas 1 and 2 were inexplicably swapped, leaving Area 2 without a trustee and Young now sharing Area 1 with Muir. The origins of Map 8 are murky at best. District staff on Wednesday identified Ty Nguyen as the individual who submitted the map but could not confirm their connection to the district. Lisa Montes, a resident

rect and cure the violations by March 28. On Wednesday, Muir shut down Young’s attempts to speak in an open session about the alleged violations, stating that legal counsel had advised all discussions on the topic to be held in closed session. Discussions about the Brown Act were similarly avoided on March 4. The lawsuit has since been amended to include allegations of Brown Act violations. The next hearing for the case will be a status conference at 8:30 a.m. on April 18 in San Diego County Superior Court. Judge Matthew C. Braner, the judge assigned to the case, will likely decide a trial date at that point, according to Briggs. The goal is to have the matter settled before the arrival of the priTRUSTEE JULIE BRONSTEIN shares side-by-side visuals of the district’s former trustee area map, known as the Cranberry mary elections in June. “It’s gonna be tight.

Leucadia tenants speak out against ‘renoviction’ practice By Stephen Wyer

ENCINITAS — An increasing number of longtime Leucadia residents are being priced out of their apartments through a controversial but legal practice that allows property owners to remove tenants under the auspices of remodeling their units. “Renoviction” (a portmanteau of the words “renovation” and “eviction”) is not a new phenomenon nor is it unique to Encinitas. However, residents, city officials and local housing attorneys all agree the practice has been on the rise in recent months. Mike Mager and his wife were model tenants at their two-bedroom unit on Phoebe Street. The couple said they never paid rent late, kept the unit in good order, and followed the terms of their lease. But Mager said that didn’t seem to matter when the landlords decided to remodel their unit. “After eight years of paying rent on time with no issues, I come back from work one day to find a notice taped on my door saying you have 60 days to move,” Mager said. “I mean, unless you’re made of money, it’s not the easiest to find a new place in 60 days. No explanation, nothing. Just we’re kicking you out, we’re redoing the unit, and we’re jacking up the price. It definitely leaves a sour taste in your mouth.” Some Encinitas residents view renovictions as little more than an excuse for property owners to kick out tenants while adding little to the units in the way of actual improvements. Patrick Reid, another former Pacific Villas resident, got his 60-day letter in October almost immediately after the statewide moratorium on evictions had expired. After being forced out, Reid learned the “remodel” of his unit entailed a few relatively minor alterations, despite a significant increase in the rental price. His family was forced to find another place altogether. “We asked them are you going to fix the plumbing, the electrical wires in the wall, etc,” Reid said. “But they said, ‘No, we’re just throwing up some paint and laminating the floors.’ To them, that was a major remodel I guess.” Ari Marsh, a 33-year resident of Leucadia, recalled that just weeks after the statewide eviction moratorium ended, numerous residents at the Pacific Villas apartment complex, including himself, started to receive notices to vacate due to planned remodeling. As Marsh and his neighbors moved out, they learned their former units were back on the market, only 50% more expensive than before. “I got my letter to move out the week after Thanksgiving, I mean right in the middle of the

holidays,” said Marsh. “With historically low vacancies in Encinitas, it’s pretty much impossible to find a new place to live at that point. They jacked up the price and said, ‘Well, if you want to stay now you have to completely move out and reapply, and then I wasn’t even approved to move back in.” One of Marsh’s neighbors, a tenant who spoke with The Coast News on the condition of anonymity due to fear of reprisal, got their letter to vacate just before Marsh, with a move-out date of Dec. 26, the day after Christmas. Being forced to completely move out, and find a temporary place to live before reapplying to his own unit (rent was now 30% higher) was a stressful experience for the Leucadia retiree. In response to the notices to vacate, Marsh, along with approximately 15 to 20 other tenants at Pacific Villas, wrote a letter to the owners of the apartment complex, entreating them to reconsider their decision. “Please don’t forcibly evict us to remodel the apartments, we love living here and want to stay,” the letter reads. “We are all neighbors who have been loyally paying our rent for many years and love to call Pacific Villas our home.” Pacific Villas owners and property managers declined to comment for this story, but according to Marsh, the letter did not alter their decision.

What's the law?

In Sept. 2021, a statewide eviction moratorium, in place since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in California, expired. Subsequently, residents countywide have experienced a rise in no-fault evictions from landlords seeking to take advantage of rapidly rising property values, according to Gilberto Vera, an attorney with Legal Aid Society of San Diego, a nonprofit law firm specializing in tenant advocacy. A “renoviction” is a particular kind of no-fault eviction that is carried out in order to repair or renovate a housing unit. Under state law, renovictions are

legal as long as the apartment landlord is making a “substantial” remodel that necessitates a vacating of the premises on the tenant’s part (tenants are typically served with a 60day notice to vacate to allow for the renovations). However, Vera and others say the practice is commonly exploited by property owners who will often significantly increase rents after asking tenants to move out, while only making slight alterations to the unit itself. Residents then are not only forced to move out but have to choose between finding another place altogether or signing a new lease on their former unit with substantially higher rents. In Encinitas, renovictions have been on the rise significantly since the state moratorium expired in October, local real es-

tate and tenant attorneys told The Coast News. “It’s not anything new, but it’s become a growing issue,” Vera said. “About 23% of the people calling into the Legal Aid Society are dealing with a no-fault eviction stemming from a remodel. It’s the number one issue people are calling about.” In California, the law is clear that in order to evict a tenant for renovation reasons, the landlord must conduct a “substantial” remodel of the unit. However, what qualifies as “substantial” is a legal gray area, according to Louis Galuppo, an attorney

with Carlsbad’s G10 Law. “When it comes to what’s ‘substantial,’ this is really a brand new field of law that needs to be tested in the courts,” Galuppo said. “(The term) ‘substantial’ in this particular statute has not been addressed in a manner where I could tell you where the lines are.” Vera agreed, noting this gaping ambiguity in the law has turned into a statewide money-maker for property owners and real estate speculators eager to take advantage of rapidly rising property values. “A ‘substantial’ remodel has become a winwin for landlords,” Vera said. “You can remove the tenant, remodel the property and add higher value, and then you can rent it out for a higher amount. I mean, it’s a no-brainer from that perspective, it’s really the right time for this for a landlord.” Legal protections for tenants in Califor-

nia increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, as landlords were required to provide more substantive reasoning for a no-fault eviction than in the past, Vera said. However, once property management entities figured out they could exploit the vague language of “renoviction” law, the practice became increasingly common. “Before 2020, your landlord could really evict you without almost any reason,” Vera said. “And now, they have to provide a reason but they’ve figured out which ones are easiest to use.” However, Vera emphasized that cases of unlawful renoviction in San Diego County remain an exception. “I mean this is a pretty big loophole in the law,” Vera said. “Most tenants don’t know what their rights are, and even with an attorney, you’ll have an

uphill battle, it’s almost an insurmountable thing to overcome.”

Changing culture

To Marsh, Mager, Reid and other Leucadians, renoviction not only causes financial hardship and immense stress for tenants, but the practice is also fundamentally changing the city's unique makeup and character. While Encinitas is known for its idyllic beach culture, surfing and artistry, critics say the city is becoming increasingly stratified in favor of the uber-rich, pushing many longtime, less affluent residents out. “We’re ending up with a lot of newer Encinitas residents with a much higher standard of living, a lot of them coming from out of state places like Chicago, New York, San Francisco, who work in tech-related fields and whatnot, and they don’t bat an eye at these rent prices — it’s just a whole new crop of people,” Marsh said. “They’re homogenizing Encinitas, whitewashing our culture and the funk, taking away the interesting people that have been the spirit and essence of this funky beach town in many cases for decades.” “It’s going to lose the vibe that it’s had,” Reid said of Leucadia. “It’s one of the last coastal cities in San Diego that’s still true to its roots and the vibe. And these property owners are forcing a lot of it out and creating lots of change.” Councilwoman Kellie Hinze said renovictions seem to be increasing throughout the city and pose a growing threat to the beach town’s singular culture, particularly in Leucadia. “It’s definitely a threat to our character as being a haven for artists and people who may not be in tech making a hundred grand a year,” Hinze told The Coast News. “I don’t think that it’s a new phenomenon in Encinitas. But we need to be continually aware of this as forces change, in order to protect those folks who bring us so much vibrancy.” And it’s not just in Encinitas. No-fault evictions have become a “vehicle for gentrification” throughout San Diego County, Vera says, with numerous coastal cities struggling to reconcile their traditional character with the reality of property values that rise faster than paychecks for most of the middle class. “The real way to tackle this is not just through procedural steps,” Vera said. “We can encourage development and add property value without jacking up the rental prices and evicting tenants.” But when it comes to renoviction, there are two sides to the story. In comments made to The Coast News, multiple property managers in Encinitas expressed that far

APRIL 8, 2022 from being an exploitive tactic, renovictions are simply a perfectly legal way for owners to make needed repairs to their residences while keeping rents on par with rising property values. “If you can’t afford to live in a place, you can’t afford to live there,” said Jerry Johnson, a broker with San Diego-based KW Commercial. “Just because you’ve lived there all your life that doesn’t really matter, I mean that’s just the market.” Renovations and resulting rate increases for tenants are just a natural part of the real estate cycle, Johnson said. Johnson said that many landlords conducting renovictions may also be trying to make up for financial losses suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic when property managers statewide were often unable to collect rents or evict tenants due to state restrictions. “You have a lot of landlords that haven’t even gotten rents in two years; that have bent over backward to accommodate these tenants,” Johnson said. “The market’s hot now and they have the opportunity to recoup their profits. At the end of the day, everyone has the right to get the highest and best value for their property. “It’s a business decision. We here in Encinitas have had the pleasure of living in the last little quaint city that is extremely commercialized, but that’s fading out, that’s changing. What to do about that, I really don’t know, there’s only so much you can do. It’s expensive to live here and there’s no two ways about it, but I don’t think that the solution is to change the laws and lock in the rates for landlords.”

FAIR

while the court has not determined for certain the request for proposal for this year’s county fair was created specifically to benefit Ray Cammack Shows, there is enough evidence to grant the injunction. “With respect to RFP 21-03, there is a probability of prevailing on the claim that the bid was tailored specifically for one bidder,” Medel wrote. “There is at least the appearance of favoritism which is contrary to public policy.” The 22nd DAA released a statement Tuesday following the ruling, stating they are “working to determine what this means for the 2022 fair,” which is scheduled to begin June 8 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. “We are very concerned by some of the contentions upon which the Court’s ruling is apparently based, which have not been proven,” the 22nd DAA’s statement reads. “With fewer than 10 weeks before the start of the fair, the 22nd DAA is committed to doing everything it can to save this beloved summer ritual that is enjoyed by 1.5 million San Diegans and Californians. Fair officials are considering all options and hope to make a determination about how to proceed in the coming days.” Ray Cammack Shows was awarded a five-year contract, worth approximately $80 million and granted control of 100% of the games, rides and food concessions in the carnival portion, or midway, of the fair. According to Moot, the injunction does not prevent the fairgrounds from operating a new midway contract with a different carnival operator for the fair or operating a joint contract with Ray Cammack Shows

and another midway operator. The injunction also will not apply to the next four years of their contract. Medel said he weighed the potential harm of eliminating the 22nd DAA’s carnival operator two months before the fair against the harm of denying Talley Amusements a fair and competitive bidding process in making his decision. The judge acknowledged that Katie Mueller, the fairground’s chief operating officer, had shared that “there is no time left to issue a new RFP, solicit bidders, score, and resolve any protests associated with a new RFP for a Master Carnival Operator; that could take months.” However, concerns about potential violations of the public bidding process by the 22nd DAA ultimately prevailed in his ruling.

“An injunction functions as a tool to uphold the safeguards to public bidding to prevent bias and arbitrary factors influencing bid selection,” Medel wrote.

“The integrity of the public bidding process as well as the integrity of governing institutions themselves require preliminary injunctive relief.”

O’side explores cluster housing to save farmland; residents push back By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — As the Oceanside City Council continues to prepare for its general plan update, the question of how to preserve farmland in South Morro Hills has become a hot-button issue among residents who don’t want to see more housing take over the city’s remaining agricultural land. In early 2020, city staff began the general plan update's second phase, which includes changes to the city’s existing land use, circulation, housing, conservation and open spaces, community facilities, safety and noise elements. Several community workshops have been held over the last few years with the most recent workshop based in South Morro Hills, the city’s farming community, on March 16 to brainstorm strategies to preserve farmland there.

future housing and employment growth will occur through infill and redevelopment within the City’s major commercial corridors — Mission Avenue, Oceanside Blvd, Vista Way, and Coast Highway,” “demonstrate capacity to accommodate the city's fair share of regional housing growth” and “encourage environmental stewardship,” according to a staff report. Alternative A focuses heavily on development along Mission Avenue, Oceanside Boulevard and Vista Way corridors, with some additional housing

included in South Morro Hills above the neighborhood’s current 2.5 dwelling units per acre (at least 75% of a development site must be preserved as farmland). Under this plan, the city would have an average residential density of 40 dwelling units per acre and would include less retail and office development and more industrial developments. Alternatives B and C are almost identical with the inclusion of some concentrated growth within the Oceanside Boulevard corridor, an average density of 52 dwelling units per acre and more development of retail/office space and less industrial. The key difference between alternatives B and C is what they propose for South Morro Hills. Under Alternative B, the farming community would not receive any additional housing beyond existing zoning. However, Alternative C could add 450 units above its current designation via higher-density clustered housing, which groups residential properties together to preserve extra land for open space, recreational or agricultural purposes. Staff recommended Alternative C and suggested that clustered housing could actually help to preserve farmland in South Morro Hills. But dozens of residents spoke against that option, fearing high-

er density projects would create potential conflicts between residential and agricultural practices. Many were also concerned about the cost to bring necessary infrastructure like roads and sewage connections for residential development in South Morro Hills, in addition to increased traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. Other major concerns from residents included a loss of rural scenery, habitat and increased wildfire risks. “We think it’s premature to make a decision for many reasons,” said resident Diane Nygaard. “It’s clear why we should not put housing on farmland… but how well do any of these alternatives protect remaining natural land?” Several residents asked the Planning Commission to instead choose Alternative B, which would not add any additional housing to South Morro Hills. The vast majority of the community members who spoke want to maintain the existing zoning standard of one dwelling unit per 2.5 acres and consider other approaches to farmland preservation, which could include conservation easement acquisition to save large pieces of land from development. They also want to promote more agritourism in the area to bring more rev-

enue from visitors to farmers. Ultimately, the Planning Commission did not choose its preferred alternative and instead moved the decision to April 25. Going forward, the city will separate South Morro Hills planning from the overall general plan update, and all of the alternatives will reflect current zoning standards in the farming community. Planning for South Morro Hills will continue with more focus on agritourism, other approaches to farmland and flexibility regarding housing developments as well. “We don’t want to suggest there is only one way to preserve farmland in South Morro Hills,” Cunningham said. Cunningham noted that the city is required to choose an alternative plan when updating its general plan. Such a plan could help steer the direction of development in South Morro Hills which many believe is inevitable considering the state’s push for more housing A city’s general plan serves as its “constitution” and guiding document for development and policymaking. Oceanside adopted the first phase of its update in 2019 along with its economic development element, climate action element and climate action plan.

cross the railroad tracks, locals have done so regularly for decades to avoid having to walk north along Vulcan Avenue to La Costa or south to Leucadia Boulevard just to get to the shoreline. Longtime Leucadia resident Rob Fleener said that a boundary installed along the railroad corridor means locals now have two alternatives to circumvent the tracks, both equally undesirable — pedestrians can either walk along Vulcan Avenue, where there isn’t a substantial amount of room in either lane, or drive. “People on both sides of the tracks cross every day to go to businesses restaurants, schools, etc,” Fleener said. “The notion that our community now pays the cost and we no longer have access to that without getting in our car and driving several miles seems like such a bad idea.” During a March 23 special meeting, the Encinitas City Council considered funding allocation for different capital improvement projects brought up by city staff, numerous residents expressed their concern with the rail fence, including Carol Heil, a leader of the community organization Now Leucadia. “With this rail fence being completed, there will be no way to cross the tracks for what is the longest stretch of fenced rail in Encinitas,” Heil said. “There will be no access to Vulcan on one side, no access to Streetscape on the other side without getting in a car. “What the community wants is a rail crossing and solution to the situation on Vulcan. Where is the will of the city council and staff to get this done? When you put up that fence and you can’t cross over to the beaches it’ll be like looking at San Francisco from your jail cell in Alcatraz — you can see it, you just can’t get to it.” Longtime local Desire Smith said she fears that more than just posing an inconvenience to Leucadians, the fence could endanger residents walking along the highly trafficked Vulcan Avenue. “This fence puts us in a precarious situation,” Smith said. “Now we have to go down to either Leucadia Boulevard or La Costa and there’s no sidewalk along Vulcan, I mean how do you get there safely? Having to meander through the streets and there’s no straight line, like how are families supposed to do that with children in tow?”

At the meeting, Mayor Catherine Blakespear acknowledged that it would likely be several years before the city could even start construction on a rail crossing in Leucadia. In 2021, the City Council allocated $250,000 towards putting out a request for proposal, or RFP, to find a firm that could conduct conceptual planning and designs for a potential rail crossing. To date, the city

is reviewing proposals for design analysis from five different vendors, city staff said. However, once this analysis is conducted, there are still multiple regulatory hurdles that the city must overcome in order to get to the point of project development. In particular, Blakespear noted that any concept or design for a crossing would have to be reviewed and ultimately approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. “I think it’s important to be clear about what the reality is, which is that it’ll take three years just for project design and the creation of a biddable plan,” Blakespear said. But many residents feel as though the rail crossing’s slow progress has to do with the city failing to prioritize Leucadia’s infrastructure needs. “I’ve lived in Leucadia for over 40 years, and what hasn’t changed is the lack of pedestrian safety on Vulcan,” said Brenna Fleener, in comments addressed to the council. “It’s disheartening and frustrating, and now all these years later it’s me and my parents still asking for rail crossings in northwest Leucadia.” Numerous residents at the meeting, including Now Leucadia representative Diana Nuñez, expressed concern that the pedestrian safety issues in Leucadia will only be further exacerbated by an onset of recent development projects in Encinitas. “Our corridor is experiencing the most development in all of the city corridors, we have a 48-unit single home complex going in up towards [Interstate 5], a 72-unit building on La Costa and Vulcan, and that same developer is building a 30 room plus 90 unit apartment and village complex just south of the Alila Marea hotel,” Nuñez said. “These are beautiful projects but nowhere else in Encinitas do we have that amount of development. And then the infrastructure in the corridor is so lacking, it’s dangerous, we need to get across that rail-

road because now so many more people will be trying to cross with these new developments.” “We have all of these developments coming into the city, but you have to be able to get around, you have to have the infrastructure in place so that when the developments come they do not crush the community we care about,” said Cory Martin at the special agenda meeting. “Please please re-prioritize Leucadia, prioritize a grade crossing — I implore you so that we can visit our businesses and other things on the other side of the tracks.” Heil said she and other residents were disappointed to see the rail crossing project was not a Tier 1 item for funding on the city’s capital improvements agenda, which was posted in advance of the special agenda meeting. “I feel like it was disheartening, we feel like they’re just not making

this rail crossing a priority,” Heil said. “We’ve been fighting for this with our group for two years, the Leucadia community at large has been fighting for this for over 20 years, and we’re still not on Tier 1 of the CIP, still not a priority. This is one of the biggest needs in the entire coastal area, so yea we weren’t thrilled by how the council handled this. We’re being neglected — it’s that simple.” Nuñez agreed. “Our community is just extremely frustrated over this,” Nuñez said. "The new budget proposals came out for the CIP and again, Leucadia is not really on it, even though we pushed and pushed on this. I know that government moves slowly, but this is creeping. I mean, obviously, they realize there is a huge issue here, an urgent need for this rail crossing, but there doesn’t seem to be any push to solve it.”

Blakespear said that because the rail crossing project is not even in the conceptual analysis phase yet, it would be inappropriate for the city council to place the item on the first tier for general funding. “There’s nothing to build, this isn’t even designed yet,” Blakespear said. “Yes, this is among our top priorities but we can’t put money into a project that’s uncertain. The CIP money is to spend on things that are needed and we can’t just put those funds towards an indefinite savings account.” Blakespear expressed that even getting to the point of construction for a rail crossing will be a grueling and costly bureaucratic process, involving numerous state, local, and regional bodies. Additionally, the project’s cost could be in the tens of millions, and the city, already operating on a severely constrained budget, will need to procure state and/or federal grants before construction could begin.

Regulatory hurdles

The mayor explained that installing a rail crossing is bureaucratically challenging for Encinitas because the council made the decision last year to pursue an at-grade crossing project for Leucadia, which entails significantly more regulatory scrutiny than a separated grade crossing. An at-grade crossing is an intersection where a local road bisects a highway at the same elevation, whereas a grade-separated interchange is one where the road crosses over or under the highway. At-grade crossings are significantly less expensive and are easier to build than grade-separated intersections, according to Councilman Tony Kranz, which means the city could potentially build multiple such

crossings in Leucadia, not just one. Additionally, Kranz said that the council has seen the empirical success of at-grade crossings in facilitating pedestrian traffic in other cities, including San Clemente and Santa Barbara. However, Blakespear and Kranz both emphasized that getting approval from state and local agencies for an at-grade crossing is significantly more challenging than it would be for a separated intersection. The state utility commission, in particular, has traditionally disfavored at-grade crossings because they want to reduce any possible conflicts between trains and pedestrians. “We want at-grade like they have in San Clemente, that will allow us to build more crossings and it doesn’t cost as much…but what this comes down to is that there’s a lot of pushback from regulators, it’s one thing or another,” said Kranz. “It’s all taking longer than it should because we have to do safety studies, we have to justify this in safety terms and be able to say to the CPUC here’s the data to show why this works.” While conducting safety studies, meeting with potential vendors, and dealing with regulatory hurdles may not be the kind of progress that Leucadians are hoping to see, Blakespear expressed that it’s important to be realistic given the city’s constrained resources, asking residents to be patient with the process. “There’s a reality of physical constraints,” Blakespear said. “The reality is that working in the rail corridor is expensive, time-consuming, etc. What we’re doing isn’t nothing, things are happening at the city level, but ya, to all of us, I think it’s disappointing that this doesn’t happen faster, and I wish it did.”

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.

When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling approximately $89,854.77 in the form of certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. A deposit need not accompany an oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $89,854.77 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence. This amount, like the bid deposits, must be delivered in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. If the Secretary is the highest bidder, he need not pay the bid amount in cash. The successful bidder will pay all conveyancing fees, all real estate and other taxes that are due on or after the delivery date of the remainder of the payment and and all other costs associated with the transfer of title. At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned to them. The Secretary may grant the winning bidder an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15-day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be paid in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the

required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the discretion of the HUD representative, offer the property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the trustor(s) or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The scheduled foreclosure sale shall be cancelled or adjourned if it is established, by documented written application of the mortgagor to the Foreclosure Commissioner not less than 3 days before the date of sale, or otherwise, that the default or defaults upon which the foreclosure is based did not exist at the time of service of this notice of default and foreclosure sale, or all amounts due under the mortgage agreement are tendered to the Foreclosure Commissioner, in the form of a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Secretary of HUD, before public auction of the property is completed. To obtain a pre-sale reinstatement all defaults must be cured prior to the scheduled sale, plus all other amounts that would be due under the mortgage agreement if payments under the mortgage had not been accelerated, advertising costs and postage expenses incurred in giving notice, mileage by the most reasonable road distance for posting notices and for the Foreclosure Commissioner’s attendance at the sale, reasonable and customary costs incurred for title and lien record searches, the necessary out-ofpocket costs incurred by the Foreclosure Commissioner for recording documents, a commission for the Foreclosure Commissioner, and all other costs incurred in connection with the foreclosure prior to reinstatement. To obtain information regarding reinstating the loan by paying the sums that are delinquent you should contact the Foreclosure Commissioner, Quality Loan Service Corp., at the address or phone number listed below. Tender of payment by certified or cashier’s check or application for cancellation of the foreclosure sale shall be submitted to the address of the Foreclosure Commissioner provided below.

NOTE: THE PROPERTY IS BEING SOLD SUBJECT TO A RIGHT OF REDEMPTION CREATED BY CIVIL CODE SECTION 5715. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 844-3872537 or visit: www.DelphiLLP. com/foreclosure-information for information regarding the sale of this property, using the following Trustee Sale number assigned to this case: 5210 1006030501. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled

sale may not immediately be available via telephone or reflected on the website listed above. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have the right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. 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 844-387-2537 or visit www.DelphiLLP.com/ foreclosure-information, using the file number assigned to this case: 5210 1006030501 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the 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.

Smoothing the face, soothing the spirit small talk jean gillette

I

have been abraded. While it sounds like something that might come after a motorcycle accident or a slide into home plate, it was actually something quite nice, luxurious even. In that ever-hopeful, rarely fulfilled quest for the skin of a 25-year-old, I treated myself to a microdermabrasion treatment. What I was hoping for was a serious renovation of my face. I know there’s another face down there somewhere with tiny pores and maybe even some elasticity left. What I was truly wishing for was to leave a good deal of my current face at the shop and take home only the really new part. Apparently, for that kind of magic, I need to consider more harsh and more expensive treatments. I always set my sights a little too high, but all things considered, it was one heck of a facial. She steamed and creamed, poked and massaged and finally, carefully and professionally, gave me a mini-sandblast with a rather fascinating machine that did leave my face feeling like a baby’s bottom. I can’t truly say how I look now, but my friends have been very kind. They insist I look refreshed and renewed and who am I to argue? What I probably need to do is avoid that 800-times-lifesize magnifying mirror I use every CROP morning. I .93 suspect no matter .93 layers of face I how many 4.17 4.28

might lose, in that mirror I would still see the surface of the moon reflecting back at me. But the abrasion treatment was only part of my afternoon pampering and it was grand. My face-fixer massaged my neck and shoulders, covered me with hot towels and rubbed vitamin E into my face. I don’t care nearly as much about how I look as how I feel, and I left there feeling simply decadent and even relaxed. Now that’s an accomplishment. I got an extra surprise when she couldn’t stand to leave my ignored eyebrows in their untidy state. Who knew? I don’t believe I have even looked closely at my eyebrows since my children were born. She trimmed, plucked and waxed until they actually had a shape. It was amazing. It almost made me want to put on makeup. I really need a keeper. Perhaps every woman does. We should just pair up. We can’t look at ourselves and really tell what looks best. Just notice some of our clothes and hairdos and that becomes painfully obvious. We see ourselves too often and use those magnifying mirrors I mentioned earlier. We can’t be impartial. It’s always better through the eyes of someone else, who can assess you at arm’s length with a fashion-conscious eye. Until I get that in place, I will stick with the occasional sandblasting and take my aesthetician at her word. She insisted I looked really good for my age. At this age, that will do nicely.

In the long run, Carlsbad 5000 too iconic to fade away sports talk jay paris

A

onetime North County rite of spring has sprung up again, and boy, have you been missed. The name and distance sound familiar. Is the legendary Carlsbad 5000 really near the starting line? “Tell everyone to tie up their shoes and we’ll see them out there,” said Meb Keflezighi, one of world’s most celebrated distance runners. Keeping up with Meb, an Olympic silver medalist and winner of the New York City and Boston marathons, is always a challenge. The good news is he’ll be more of a greeter than a grinder during the Carlsbad 5K on May 22. Meb is involved with a company headed by Cardiff’s John and Griff Smith that co-owns the event. They will help present the 36th

Carlsbad 5K, which is a gift for athletes and revelers. Because of COVID-19, the 3.1-mile road race that hugs the coast and cruises above the Pacific Ocean with an exciting downhill

finish in downtown Carslbad was 86’d from the schedule. The last one was in 2019, back when a mask was something to wear at Halloween. Fast-forward to now and wow. The race known

the past will return,” Meb said. “And we welcome all the new people that maybe got into walking and running during the pandemic.” Meb knows the history that always traipses along

with a Carlsbad 5K. It’s part race and part party, with active souls wearing out the soles of their shoes. Of course, before the marquee and age-group races is a fun-filled event for kids running, waddling, crawling and lurching through their appropriate distances. No matter their years or skill, Meb will be around to slap a medal around their necks at the finish line. It carries on a tradition started by Steve Scott, the legendary American miler and co-founder of the event. “I might be a marathoner but there is nothing like the Carlsbad 5K,” said Meb, a San Diego High graduate before becoming an NCAA champion at UCLA. “I can’t wait.” The weight of COVID-19 fell squarely on the Carlsbad 5K. It had to cool its jets while America tried to outrun the virus and it is among the final regular road races to regain its mojo. “It’s about running but really it’s a celebration of having a healthy, happy lifestyle,” Meb said. “The TURN TO SPORTS TALK ON 19

Improve attention & learning before the next school year Stronger Brains, and Encinitas Learning Center are excited to announce their affiliation to offer the Stronger Brains’ platform in Encinitas. Encinitas Learning Center, headed by Lynda Detweiler, Speech Pathologist and Cognitive Fluency expert has been bringing the North County area the latest neuro technology and interventions for over 25 years - since 1997! Over 4000 students and adults have benefitted from these cutting edge programs resulting in early acceptance letters from MIT and Cal Poly, meeting qualifications for their desired majors and career paths, and are now contributing members of our community! Initially, these students were below average readers or unable to read at all! Stronger Brains is a revolutionary cognitive fluency program that trains children’s brains to improve their cognitive abilities and social-emotional health. Designed for ages 1018, this tool used by skilled ELC therapists engages students in challenging and engaging exercises tailored to strengthen their foundational neurocognitive skills. Rooted in decades of

research by world leading neuroscientists, the program helps children build the confidence, positive self-image and cognitive skills required for learning and mental wellness. ABOUT STRONGER BRAINS Stronger Brains is an online platform used by ELC trainers to improve children’s cognitive abilities and social-emotional health. The program and the research supporting it were developed by co-founder Dr. Michael Merzenich, Professor Emeritus at UCSF and recognized world authority on brain plasticity and its translation to improve learning and wellness. The platform combines brain plasticity-based training, to target and grow the core cognitive skills required for learning, with evidence-based social and emotional health tools including mindfulness, gratitude, healthy relationships and good sleep patterns. The training is done under headphones for maximum exposure to stimuli with 1:1 trainer to student ratio in order to achieve optimum outcomes. Summer is the ideal time to do this 2 hours daily intervention over 7 weeks offered from June

20th to August 5th. Monitoring is essential to optimize outcomes as we employ off line strategies and skill training to boost breakthroughs in building new neural pathways. This growth is measurable in years after only a few weeks’ intensive therapy! This unique training not only changes the speed of processing for both visual and auditory information (allowing greater ability to take in new learning) but also trains the student to be able to calm inner angst that often interferes with learning at all levels. These are anxious times for our young students and we offer positive ways to deal with the very serious discussions on the news about climate change, Covid 19 and World unrest, to name only a few real life concerns. Mindfulness and Executive Function skills are well-informed ways of quelling the uneasy feelings surrounding these events. Join us at Encinitas Learning Center this summer for fun activities in a camp-like environment but everything we do is goal-driven and with the purpose to improve cognitive skills.

Ironman 70.3 Oceanside triathlon returns to O’side Pier By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The world’s premier Ironman Triathlon series returned to Oceanside Pier over the weekend, attracting athletes from around the world to compete in one of the most difficult single-day sporting events in the modern era. Ironman 70.3 Oceanside kicked off early Saturday morning, challenging its competitors with a 1.2mile swim to start. Once they pushed past the break, competitors swam into the harbor before leaving the water for a 56-mile bicycle course through Camp Pendleton and San Onofre Bluffs State Park. Participants then looped back around to Oceanside for a two-loop, 13.1-mile running course through the harbor, The

Strand and nearby neighborhood. Taylor Knibb, of the United States, dominated the women after finishing in 4 hours, 6 minutes and 31 seconds. On the men’s side, Canada’s Jackson Laundry won the race with a time of 3:44.59. San Diego’s Athletic Brewing, a non-alcoholic beer brewery and title sponsor of Ironman 70.3 Oceanside, is also the lead sponsor for the Ironman competition in Barcelona this October. “We kicked off our partnership with Ironman last year, so this was the second Athletic Brewing Oceanside Ironman 70.3,” said brewery CEO Bill Shufelt. Athletic Brewing had nine athletes on its team this year: Keith Sardone,

man competitor said he was satisfied with his performance on Saturday. He came in 13th place in the men’s category with a time of 3 hours, 56 minutes and 12 seconds. “My Oceanside race was a good chance to push hard in the middle of an Ironman training block and practice racing hard before my bigger events this year,” Hoffman told The Coast News. “Of course, I love to win races, but this was more of a ‘rust buster’ for me, and will hopefully provide a good bump in fitness as I gear up for my first big goal of the year in St. George, Utah on May 7th.” Across the country in Galveston, Texas, tragedy struck on April 3, a day after Oceanside’s race, when an athlete died after

needing medical attention during the swim portion of an Ironman triathlon there. After receiving medical attention from safety personnel there, the athlete was taken to a nearby hospital where he died. “We share our greatest sympathies with the family and friends of the athlete and will continue to offer them our support as they go through this very difficult time,” reads a statement on the Ironman 70.3 Texas Facebook page. “We thank the swim safety personnel and first responders who worked quickly to provide the athlete with medical support.”

San Diego Wave soccer earns first win By City News Service

REGION — The San Diego Wave Fútbol Club recorded its first victory on April 2, defeating Angel City FC, 4-2, with Alex Morgan scoring twice in the NWSL Challenge Cup group play game at Torero Stadium. Morgan gave Wave FC the lead for good in the 72nd minute when she took a cross from Christen Westphal and put a shot from about 11 yards out from the center of the penalty area into the bottom right corner of the net, breaking a 2-2 tie. Rookie forward Amirah Ali added an insurance goal in the 81st minute of the 90-minute game off Isabella Briede's assist. Ali controlled Briede’s pass about 10 yards passed the midfield stripe, eluded a potential tackle by ACFC defender Vanessa Gilles about 30 yards from the goal, continued her drive, then put a left-footed shot from about 13 yards out just inside the right goalpost for her first goal as a professional. Wave FC forward Jodie Taylor opened the scoring in the 19th minute, putting in the rebound of her header which had been saved by ACFC goalkeeper Didi Haracic. ACFC (0-3-1) tied the score on an own goal in the

38th minute when defender Wave FC defender Tegan McGrady attempted to pass the ball back to goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan, only to have the ball roll into the net. Wave FC (1-1-1) regained the lead three minutes into first-half stoppage time when ACFC defender was unable to control a loose ball and it went to Morgan, who put a 7-yard shot past Haracic and inside the left goal post. ACFC retied the score in the 59th minute when Christen Press brought down a cross from Jasmyne Spence between a pair of defenders, set herself up and

fired past Sheridan. Morgan and Press were teammates on the U.S. teams that won the 2015 and 2019 FIFA Women's World Cups. Wave FC led 23-11 in shots, 11-6 in shots on goal and 12-2 on corner kicks in front of a crowd announced at 5,158, seven days after Wave FC’s tournament home opener drew a sellout crowd at the 6,000-seat stadium at the University of San Diego. Sheridan made five saves and Haracic seven. The game was a rematch of the 1-1 tie between the National Women’s Soccer League expansion teams March 19 at Titan Stadium

at Cal State Fullerton, the tournament opener for both teams. “I'm overcome with pride in terms of today’s performance in terms of the fact that we got pegged back twice after going in front and the fact that we dominated the first half and could have gone in deflated,” said Wave FC coach Casey Stoney, whose team will resume play April 14 against OL Reign in Seattle. “I thought it showed real character. Quality players showed their quality on the pitch. Alex, Jodie and the likes of those, including (forward) Sofia (Jakobsson) caused real problems.”

community of Carlsbad is so behind it and everyone is on the same page. And with it being a 5K, people from 10 years old to 80 years old can run it.” Count Meb among those with two Carlsbad 5Ks on his resume, originally lured to it as college freshman to see the great Scott in action. “It’s such an iconic race that I always wanted to do it,” said Meb, who finished in the top seven in his appearances. “I went out fast one time and then I went out slow and was conservative the other time. Yet both times my time was 13:37.” What’s swell is that

the personable Meb always has time for everyone. It’s estimated he’s signed nearly 30,000 autographs while competing around the world, quite a feat considering the length of his last name. In a city known for Legoland, Meb is anxious to see churning legs once again fill the course that is as quick as it is scenic. “When the world went on hiatus, it was tough,” he said. “But maybe everyone knows themselves a little bit better.” Fact is, nearly everyone missed the Carlsbad 5K and they’re ecstatic Meb is helping to run it back.

Big Jim’s serves up wicked good roast beef lick the plate david boylan

I

have to admit, given my somewhat jaded culinary standards and sensibilities that have developed over 15 years of Lick the Plate, it takes something really special to attach a title like “king” to its creator. But seriously, after one bite of the roast beef sandwich from James Jones, chef and owner of Big Jim’s New England Style Roast Beef, I looked up from the beautiful pile of beef before me at The Leucadian Bar, gazed out towards the Big Jim’s rig parked on Coast Highway 101, and proclaimed loudly, “You are the king of roast beef and I worship the ground you walk on!” This whole experience was brought on by a story about Boston-area natives living in Los Angeles and other faraway places, making the drive down to get some of this amazing roast beef. Any time I hear stories like that I take notice. And lucky for me, Big Jim’s

was parked right down the street outside of The Leucadian Bar. Big Jim’s is not a food truck, more like a van with a tent attached to the back and everything needed to create this masterpiece of a

sandwich. But before we get into the details of how this pile of beefy goodness is created, here is a little backstory on its origins. Given the name, you are correct in assuming a New England heritage. As the story goes, a joint called Kelly’s Beef Shop had a wedding catering gig that canceled and left them with a whole lot of extra prime rib. So, they shaved it up thin on sandwiches and the rest is his-

tory. There is a special sauce that is essential, and it’s called James River BBQ Sauce which proudly proclaims on its Facebook page, “The sauce that made the North Shore of Boston BEEF CRAZY!” After that, the sandwich spread like wildfire throughout the Boston area and became a staple in many of the sub and pizza joints around town along with many specifically dedicated to variations of Kel-

ly’s original. James Jones grew up in Newbury, Massachusetts, and goes way back, having been established in 1635. Being just definitely within that radius where his local joints included the beef sandwich. Newbury is a coastal port town with a heavy emphasis on local seafood about a 45-minute drive north of Boston. As a teenager, Jones' first job was washing dishes at Scandia, an American bistro where he discovered he could make good money and eat better food than what was coming out of the kitchen at home. Jones bounced around culinary gigs in Massachusetts, honing his kitchen chops to a point to be able to make a good living at it. Five years ago, San Diego beckoned, and he made the move west. Jones landed at a Hawaiian BBQ joint in San Diego before moving on to Cloak and Petal, a happening sushi spot in Little Italy, where he expanded his skills to making sushi under executive chef James Evans. A subsequent move to Mammoth was cut short by the pandemic and when the resort shut down, Jones headed back to San Diego to contemplate his next move. Jones noticed a professional-grade meat slicer for sale on Offer Up that brought back the memories of the roast beef sandwiches of his youth. Thus, the concept for Big Jim’s was born. Shortly after testing began, he had

the recipe perfected. And while he could not share exact details, it goes something like this: A lightly seasoned top round roast is cooked to medium-rare for 12 hours at 133 degrees with a water bath, the circulating moist air resulting in a perfectly tender, yet firm enough to hold up to a slicer without shredding. It’s a fine line and one that, based on my experience with his beef, Jones has mastered to perfection. Jones slices that perfectly tender beef thin and stacks it high on a fresh onion roll, with a slice of American cheese, mayonnaise, BBQ sauce and that’s it. If you want to come across as a Massachusetts local, order it by saying, “Gimme a super beef threeway” and you will gain some instant credibility. Jones secured the permits and licenses needed to start offering local delivery and alley pickup in his neighborhood to test the concept and the response was overwhelming. Pop-ups were next and now his beef is in such high demand that Jones can’t keep up with it. Regular stops include the Oceanside Farmers Market, Leucadian, Pour House in North Park, and Thrusters in Pacific Beach, and Bay City Brewery before games and concerts at the Sports Arena. Also, you might catch James helping out behind the sushi counter at Kai Ola in Leucadia. Find Big Jim’s and learn more at www.bigjimsroastbeef.com

Food &Wine cheers! north county

ryan woldt

Bad beer? Dump it

Y

ou might remember we started the Cheers! North County year off with some beer resolutions, including this one: Drink Less Beer, but Drink Better Beer: That’s better. I drink a lot of beer, and, frankly, I don’t always really enjoy it. Sometimes I drink beer just because it is there. Sometimes I drink it while doing other things. I crack the can. Enjoy that first sip, and then all of a sudden, it is gone. In 2022, I plan to make time to appreciate more than just that first sip. Brewers are craftspeople, and I resolve to treat their creations with the respect they deserve from start to finish. I may end up drinking less beer as I take more time to appreciate the good stuff and that’s okay. I’ve been doing a pretty good job living up to this. When the sun is out, I take a can of local craft picked up from one of our fine breweries or local beverage shops out of the fridge and head out onto the patio. I turn on some music (think Willie Nelson, Ray Charles or both). I listen to the crack-pfft that occurs when I open the can. I soak in the aroma: sticky hops or sweet malt. This is about the moment when I negotiate with the dog. He is trying to figure out why I’m paying so much more attention to my can of beer than him. After a few pats and scratches, I lift the can to my lips and take a healthy first swig. I spread the beer across my tongue and let the flavors fill my mouth before swallowing. I let myself enjoy the heat of the sun, the flavor of the beer, and the sound of the hummingbirds fighting for sugar. Except when I don’t because the beer isn’t good. Now what? This past weekend I was confronted by that very conundrum. It doesn’t often happen when drinking San Diego, but the beer was not good. It wasn’t afflicted by common off-flavors caused during the brewing process. It wasn’t due to freshness — both beers were brewed less than 30 days prior — and it wasn’t lightstruck or skunky. It was just bad. Now, I have acknowledged many times that what I might enjoy and what you might enjoy may not be the same, TURN TO CHEERS! ON 26

Top 10 discovery wines you must try

S

ince new vintages and brands have flooded the wine market, Taste of Wine has made exciting new discoveries and culminated a list of the best of the best for you to sip and savor. Actually, we could have done a top 100 with all the coveted new wines out there, but for now, here’s five wines each. From California, I have two Napa Valley gems, and one from Sonoma and the Sta. Rita Hills Central Coast. Finally, we’ll dip into a “la familia” Italian beauty from Tuscany. All wines are rated excellent and each list is listed alphabetically. Alright, time to open the bundles and pop the corks! Abstract, Orin Swift Red Blend, Napa Valley, 2020. $30: Finding this bottle may be the easiest part of your discovery. The label is crammed with a collage of zany photos, from Elvis Presley to a young Queen Elizabeth of England. Once opened, the drinker is confronted by a Rhone-style of wine with a blend of grenache, petite sirah and syrah, melded equally and seamlessly together. A deep purple bouquet dominates with plum and boysenberry. orinswift. com. Pope Valley Sangiovese, Napa Valley, 2019. $42: They said it couldn’t be done. I believed the many Italian winemakers who make the coveted Tuscan Sangiovese wines, claiming that this wine cannot be made with any quality in California. I beg to differ. This wine knocks it out of the park. The nose has aromas of violet and earthy “herbaceousness.” The taste is that of dark ripe cherry and dusty cocoa with a structure somewhere between delicate and powerful.

2019 coupled with spring warmth created ideal growing conditions and the vines responded. A mild summer allowed for slow, smooth richness and structure. Like most zinfandels, this one has important add-ons such as petite sirah, carignane and ,ataro for added pop. ridgewine.com. Sanford Estate Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills, 2017. $20. In the Sta. Rita Hills of California's Central Coast in 1971, it all began with Sanford. This cool-climate chardonnay is the whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented in French oak for a lovely textured citrus and apricot flavor. Learn more at sanfordwinery.com. Viticcio Chianti Classico Reserva, Tuscany in Italy, 2016. $22. The last 3 harvest years in Italy were the best in a decade and Viticcio’s Chianti Classico 2016 was the best of the

otherwise filtered. The resultant Chardonnay had notes of caramel and apple with a creamy mouthfeel. chalkhill.com. Daou Family Estates, Estate Soul of a Lion, Paso Robles, 2019. $175: Master winemaker Daniel Daou produced another outstanding vintage of Daou’s flagship wine, “Soul of a Lion,” dedicated to Daniel and co-owner Georges Daou’s father. The 2019 vintage experienced good dormant rain and mild temps during harvest allowing extended hang time. Like all Souls, the 2019 benefits from tight-grained French rosewood barriques (wooden barrels made famous by Bordeaux vintners), 22 months of barrel aging, and additional bottle aging until release. The hardest decision you will make is when, where, and who you will share this out of world Bordeaux blend with estate free juice, primarily cabernet sauvignon (78%), with black fruit on the palate, floral notes, ultra-high phenolics, and a 97 point Robert Parker score. daouvineyards.com. J Lohr, Cuvee Pau, Red Blend, Paso Robles, 2015. $50: The J Lohr Cuvee Pau blend replicates wines

Chalk Hill, Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, 2019. $26: I was excited to see that Wine Spectator also thought highly of this one as one of its Top 100 of 2021.

Some of these turned out to be rediscoveries for me, ones that I had in the past but was great to get reacquainted with newer vintages. Cass Winery, Viognier, Paso Robles, 2021. $29: Cass is known for French DNA with Paso Personality. I first enjoyed this wine a few weeks ago at Family Winemakers, when 2021 was launched. The 100% viognier is cold fermented in stainless Including Grilled Octopus steel creating crisp minerality with pear, honeysuckSaganaki (flaming cheese) le, and apricot on the nose Jumbo Scallops Crafted from select Sangiovese grapes and hand-harvested, aging took place in small French oak barriques for 24 months.

DATE OF SALE: 05/06/2022 TIME OF SALE: 9:00 AM PLACE OF SALE: East County Regional Center, 250 E. Main Street, El Cajon, CA 92020, Entrance of the East County Regional Center. STREET ADDRESS and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 15305 ROSETTE RUN, VALLEY CENTER, CALIFORNIA 92082 APN#: 133-371-27-00 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $780,605.94. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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

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.

Vista teacher’s book draws on sweet family tradition By Jacqueline Covey

VISTA — If you’re turning another year older in a day, a certain fairy may be on her way. Third-generation Vista resident and educator Jana Anderson captures the magic of childhood in her book released in March, “Lollipop Fairy: A Sweet Birthday Tradition.” The book opens with a young girl hugging a brightly-colored heart, signing “I love you” in American Sign Language while holding a lollipop. The little girl reminds children that they are loved all year, but a birthday is a day that “is all about you, a day that tells us how much you grew.”

In a world where magic exists, and love is plentiful, children grow lollipops on their birthdays with seeds delivered the day before. The story is based on a longtime tradition in the Anderson house. Anderson started it for her two sons when they were small children. “The night before your birthday, you get the number of seeds you’re turning, and you plant the seeds by midnight,” Anderson told The Coast News. “Then, you go to bed, and the lollipops grow by the morning.” Today, Anderson’s sons, ages 15 and 17, have yet to celebrate a birthday without a lollipop garden sprout-

ing in their name. “It’s just been the most beautiful thing because every birthday they would look outside… even now with my 17-year-old … he gets up and I see him poking his head out… and I am like ‘See, you still look, you still look,’” Anderson laughed. In 2021, Anderson gave herself 45 minutes to write a book. So, she sat down, wrote and the story of the Lollipop Fairy just flowed. “It just came to me,” Anderson said. “I just put it out there.” While her creative breakthrough was rewarding, Anderson was able to use her education and love for teaching to publish a children’s book. Anderson attended the University of North Texas, where she earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in special education. Once a public school teacher in Vista, Anderson is now a literacy specialist and special education teacher at an online charter school that offers a program for children with dyslexia, a learning disability that causes people to have diffi-

but generally speaking, I can tell if a beer is wellmade and or of a high caliber that just isn’t for me. This beer was neither. It was a West Coast-style IPA like none I have ever tasted. After taking that first (typically glorious) first swig, I was left trying to decide if I really wanted to take another. I did because I believe in second chances.

culties with language skills, such as reading. As a literacy specialist, Anderson knows time with family and reading aloud is essential for childhood development, and another key to that is representation. The “Lollipop Fairy: A Sweet Birthday Tradition” draws in readers with the brightest and boldest rainbow hues of candy. The book’s characters represent many diverse backgrounds and cultures, which may be attractive to children looking for themselves in modern stories. “A child wants to connect with the characters,” Anderson said, “Especially a lollipop fairy, that should matter to all children. I wanted a book that had rep-

resented as many children as possible.” And so far, she’s already seen it benefit others in the community. While attempting to sell the book to a store, Anderson left with a piece of what it means to have representation in the arts. “[The seller] went, ‘Oh my God, that looks like me. Do you know how few characters I see in a book or my daughter can say look like me,’” Anderson said. “It stuck with me.” Looking at her own experience, Anderson said she had a loving but “different childhood.” “No matter where we were at financially, no matter what was going on, my birthday was always spe-

The second drink was worse than the first. These were the beers that I pulled from the cooler after reading labels, comparing styles, and trying to decide if I should try something new or follow through on another beer resolution to drink a repeat beer. Now what? What would you do? I decided to add my list of beer resolutions. The newest 2022 beer resolution is: Dump It Out: If I am not enjoying a beer, I’ll dump it out. We only get so many beers in a lifetime. I’m committed to enjoying the time I spend drinking a beer, and I don’t want to create negative neural pathways

that discourage me from drinking other craft beers. That’s science. I think. I’m not a scientist. I took what remained of the tallboy can back into the house, walked to the sink, and flipped it upside down over the drain. The 22-year old version of me would have been horrified. It hurt a little bit, but it also felt liberating. No longer will the compulsive side of my brain obligate me to finish a beer just because I’ve opened the can. After crushing the can, I opened the fridge to discover another problem. I was out of beer. Luckily, there was a bottle of sweet

vermouth in the door, and I keep a bottle of Pacific Coast Spirits White Rye Whiskey on the liquor cabinet. I settled down onto the patio lounger. The sun was just beginning to head towards the horizon. The ice in my Manhattan made a lovely clinking sound in time with Willie, and the dog rested his head on my knee.

I found this super diverse bargain blend, syrah (25%), zinfandel (20%), cabernet sauvignon (18%), grenache (14%), malbec (12%), and mourvedre (11%) at Costco.

cial,” Anderson said. One birthday she remembers particularly well. At the time, Anderson’s father was suffering from homelessness, and the two hadn’t been able to see each other for a long time. “(But my father) showed up on my birthday,” Anderson said. “As a child, my birthday was never forgotten. I just knew that I wanted [my kids’] birthdays to be something that they always remembered and they felt special.” And so, she planted her lollipop garden made with seeds and lollipops she found around town. “It’s so easy for any parent — foster parents — you don’t have to have the book. You can grab a bag of lollipops from the dollar store and make [a child’s birthday] magical,” Anderson said. In the end, “Lollipop Fairy: A Sweet Birthday Tradition” is for her family. To Anderson, publishing a book was an essential piece of herself to leave behind for her children and future grandchildren. And even when they’re older, she hopes that magic lives on. “No matter where they’re at, no matter what they’re doing, somehow someway they’ll see a lollipop,” Anderson said. “And no one will know it’s me, but they’ll know. It’s like something to keep the sweetness forever in a small little way.” Find “Lollipop Fairy: A Sweet Birthday Tradition” online or at www.lollipopfairy.com.

THE BISON HERD on Catalina Island are kept at a manageable number of no more than 150.

Catalina ‘a playground for all,’ including bison

W

e are halfway into our twohour tour with Bison Expeditions on Catalina Island when tour guide Steve Carroll assures us that his passengers see bison 95% of the time. As I’m thinking we that we may be one of the unlucky 5%, we veer left on the dirt road and there they are: one hefty, wooly bull, possibly 2,000 pounds, and four smaller cows, just a few steps from our vehicle. They saunter across the road, hardly acknowledging our presence. “His harem,” says Carroll, as he brings the bio-fuel, open-air Hummer to a halt. “They have a cute and cuddly look that gives visitors the sense that they are harmless and approachable…” but their demeanor can change quickly. “The biggest misconception that visitors have is that bison are slow, lumbering animals,” he says, “but they can run up to 35 miles an hour and are very agile. Humans can’t outrun them when bison decide to defend themselves from what they perceive as a threat.” We arrived in Avalon,

hit the road e’louise ondash the island’s only town, 24 hours earlier on Catalina Express, the ferry from Dana Point. Much of the one-hour cruise took us through heavy fog, but about 20 minutes before arrival, the island’s rugged mountains appeared through the soupy haze like the culmination of magic trick. After disembarking, we wheeled our luggage to the end of Crescent Avenue and the recently renovated Bellanca Hotel. The 40-room boutique hotel received a nearly $4 million renovation in 2020 that created a contemporary nautical vibe with its rooftop sun deck, jaunty umbrellas and nautical-flag tables. From this perch, guests can observe arriving cruise ships, sailboats anchored in the crescent-shaped harbor, the picture-postcard hills to the southeast and pedes-

trian traffic that flows from the ferry terminal all the way to the Casino and beyond to Descanso Beach. While we could linger here, there are things to see and do, like our meetup with the bison. These five American bison are descendants of a few that were imported to Catalina in the 1920s for film-making purposes but were never deported. The herd is maintained by the Catalina Island Conservancy at no more than a manageable 150. There has been only one birth in several years. This is not our first trip to Catalina, but we’ve never been up and into the nearly uninhabited areas. As we bounce along in the Hummer, Carroll’s entertaining narration provides history of the island and also points out endemic animals and native and invasive plant species. Eventually we reach the near-summit of Catalina’s second-highest point, Blackjack Mountain. The ocean is visible to our right and left nearly 2,000 feet below, confirming that indeed, we are sitting on a dramatic and pre-

cipitous outcropping in the Pacific. Catalina has been inhabited for 7,000 years and has a rich history of Indian culture. The island was eventually purchased by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley in 1919, who invested millions to make it “a playground for all.” But to assure that most of the island would remain undeveloped, Wrigley

the perfect spot to watch Catalina go about its business via foot traffic, bicycle, utility vehicle and golf cart, the main mode of transport for both tourists and residents. “The island only allows a certain number of regular cars and you have to apply for a permit,” Carroll says during our Hummer tour. “The waiting list is about 20 years.”

Orange Glen teacher leaves impression on print students By Samantha Nelson

ESCONDIDO — When it comes to leaving a lasting impression, either in print or in person, Orange Glen High School teacher Aled Anaya knows exactly what to do. Anaya discovered his interest in print and design while taking a printing class as a student at Escondido High School. At the time, Anaya said he ANAYA wasn’t very motivated to do well in school and only signed up for the class to make up for lost credits. But he quickly realized his love for the art. “As soon as I walked in and saw what people were doing, I really loved the creative aspect,” Anaya said. The printing class eventually led Anaya to take on an instructional assistant role in Orange Glen’s printing, graphics and design program after graduating high school in 2010. A few years later, he began teaching the program and has been there since. Besides his love for print and design work, Anaya was also inspired to become a teacher by members of his family who worked

as educators in Mexico but couldn’t continue to do so once they immigrated to the United States. As a teacher, Anaya introduces his students to various printing methods and equipment available in the industry, such as heat pressing stickers and t-shirts, laser engraving keychains, or designing and binding books. Students in the printing, graphics and design pathway also help oversee print needs for the entire school district. Recently students started working to help the Orange Glen Skate Club by researching how to make skateboard skins. Last fall, Anaya worked with the city to get his students’ murals in Washington Park. Not only are students learning how to print their art, but they’re also learning entrepreneurial skills they could use in a professional format. Mia Funk, director of College and Career Readiness in the district, said Anaya is “his most authentic self with students,” which helps him to build better connections with them. “Aled leads through relationships,” Funk said. “He honors students’ cultural heritage and legacy, he fosters an environment in the classroom where students feel welcome and part of a community.”

of Via Vera Cruz on Sunday for the 30th annual San Marcos Spring Fling and Street Festival, with vendors offering food and wares against the backdrop of bounce houses, live music and more. The annual Spring Fling festival is organized by the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce, with support from the city itself. After COVID-19 canceled the event in 2020 and limited its operations in 2021, Sunday’s market marked a happy return to pre-pandemic times for many residents and vendors alike. According to Melanie Jamil, the chamber’s director of events, this year’s festival was modeled after the weekly farmer’s market, with the addition of dozens of crafters and booths for nonprofits, local businesses and city services. “Last year we did it on a much more modified basis at a smaller location. Now, we feel comfortable inviting the public back,” Jamil said. “People are just so excited to be feeling more confident to be going back to normal, or as normal as possible.” Upon entering the festival from the south end of Via Vera Cruz, attendees were greeted by a beer garden and live music stage, featuring performances from San Diego County bands, such as The Band Hangman. Between the live music and the bounce houses at the far end of the market, a sea of vendors offering handmade jewelry, clothing, candles, soaps and other goods awaited the crowds who turned out despite the cloudy weather. La Mesa-based vendor Nichoël Adams Dean could be seen chatting with customers as they browsed her hand-stamped metal jewelry, dog tags and other handmade treasures in her tent. Along with the

return of more consistent business, connecting with people face-to-face is a joy that Dean said she missed during the pandemic. “It’s been great, a good turnout of people,” Dean said, adding that this was her first time at the annual Spring Fling event. “My business took a huge direct hit [during COVID-19], but thankfully I had a good social media presence. I love doing events too because I get to ‘people.’” Other vendors, like soapmaker Mayra Corts Bugarin of Temecula, started their business during the pandemic. While Bugarin did not experience the harsh transition from the pre-COVID era for her business, she said the loosened restrictions in recent months have been benefi-

cial for her sales of fragrant soaps and balms. “At the beginning, we had a lot more restrictions. Now, people have a lot more freedom to walk around and smell things and touch things, which is good,” she said. Local representatives including San Marcos City Councilman Ed Musgrove and Mayor Rebecca Jones were also present Sunday, taking time to connect with residents as they did their shopping. “We set up the event in 2021, and it was a good turnout, but not like this. It has just been nonstop,” Musgrove said. “The consistent theme is, ‘It’s great you guys are doing this because it’s great to get out to be with people and do a little shopping.’”


Paving the way to dirty water water spot chris ahrens

O

ne of my favorite times to surf as a kid was when it was pouring rain. The thinking then was, “Hey, you’re getting wet anyway, why not go all the way?” Maybe we didn’t know that the ocean was gathering pet feces, motor oil and pesticides from our gutters as the rainwater made its way to the sea. Maybe, but I don’t really think that was the case. I think the ocean was much cleaner, since a mere fraction of the people who currently live near the beach did so then. San Diego’s North County in the summer of 1970, when I fled the concrete jungle of Los Angeles for the final time, was a series of middle-class hamlets whose residents worked in the flower fields, restaurants, post offices or local stores like everyone’s favorite, Value Fair. Most alleys were left unpaved, and the parking lots of Cardiff Reef and Swami’s were dirt. Seaside Reef was also dirt, except where the trailer park stood.

MORE PAVEMENT means more runoff and a dirtier ocean. Photo by Chris Ahrens

Immediately beyond the city limits (which was essentially Crest Drive, just prior to Village Park being built) were acres of chaparral that spread out all the way to the Arizona border. Whenever it rained, the ground soaked up much of the water, and the sandstone cliffs, which were yet to be stabilized, nourished the beaches with fresh sand. Nobody had luxury cars or excess cash, and we willingly shared our poverty, realizing we were wealthy in ways most of the world would never understand. I can’t blame anyone

for wanting to escape the pavement I once fled, or the brutal winters of the East. And I can’t blame those who have benefited from the construction trade. Everybody needs to make a buck. I applaud those who have attempted leaving open fields and canyons for small animals and curious children who will grow up catching bugs and reptiles, learning without really trying to examine the wonders of nature. Thank you for keeping a little portion of our paradise wild. What upsets me is the state’s obsession with cut-

ting the heart from the land, smashing the shelters of rabbits, raccoons, and coyotes in a hyperactive race to pave the world, turning flowerbeds to sidewalks and flower fields into endless lanes of oil-spewing roads that will be obsolete before they are even finished. There’s certainly a better way to move people than this method. Does anyone recall the proposal to run a non-polluting monorail down the center of I-5? That was way back in the late ’50s. I am no conspiracy theorist, but it still seems suspicious to me that Standard Oil, Firestone Tire and General Motors bought and buried the Los Angeles red car line (a system of street cars that ran on electricity and could take you as far as you cared to ride for a nickel). The best public transportation system in the world disappeared right as the freeways entombed much of our great state. I’ll never know what backroom politics were involved in this swindle, and while it continues to break my heart, I must move on toward the future. But the future is not set. We decide what it will be and if porous ground or tarmac will dominate the landscape. Freedom rings clearer in mediums of clear skies and clean oceans.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The Lamb loves to be surrounded by flocks of admirers. But be careful that someone doesn’t take his or her admiration too far. Use your persuasive skills to let him or her down easily. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time to begin setting far-reaching goals and connecting with new contacts. Aspects also favor strengthening old relationships — personal and/or professional. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A personal disappointment should be viewed as a valuable learning experience. Go over what went wrong and see where a change in tactics might have led to a more positive outcome. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t leave projects unfinished or personal obligations unresolved, or you might find yourself tripping over all those loose ends later on. A relative has important news. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Expect a challenge to the usual way you do things. Although you might prefer the tried-and-true, once you take a good look at this new idea, you might feel more receptive to it. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Much work has yet to be done to polish a still-rough idea into something with significant potential. Expect to encounter some initial rejection, but stick with it nonetheless.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There still might be some communication problems in the workplace, but they should be resolved soon. Meanwhile, that “tip” from a friend should be checked out. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A new relationship appears to need more from you than you might be willing to give right now. Best advice: Resist making promises you might not be able to keep. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That restless feeling encourages you to gallop off into a new venture. But remember to keep hold of the reins so you can switch paths when necessary. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A demanding work schedule keeps the high-spirited Goat from kicking up his or her heels. But playtime beckons by the week’s end. Have fun. You earned it. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You’re beginning to come out from under those heavy responsibilities you took on. Use this freed-up time to enjoy some much-deserved fun with people close to you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Before you get swept away by a tidal wave of conflicting priorities, take time to come up for air, and reassess the situation. You might be surprised by what you’ll find.

Tark put Las Vegas on the sports map inside

information felix taverna

A

nother college basketball season has come to an end. It only brings reflections of many evenings sitting and talking to a legend. Being with him was like walking with Elvis. They shared the same town, Las Vegas, and both became icons of the desert. UNLV, a school once known as “Tumbleweed Tech,” became a powerful college basketball program, and Jerry Tarkanian, the legend, was the coach. It has been said that a ticket to the Runnin’ Rebels game at the Las Vegas Convention Center (capacity: 6,800) was harder to get your hands on than tickets to a Frank Sinatra performance. At the time, there was nothing there in the desert. No sports teams of any value. Mostly everything revolved around casino and gaming life. Vegas was a transient city whose people had no one to look up to or root for. Until Tark the Shark arrived in 1973, that is. His job was to build a basketball program and so he did — one that become a brand that spread quickly and universally. The Runnin’ Rebels were America’s team in college hoops, Las Vegas embraced him and them, and fans traveled everywhere to support them. I met him late in life and for over 20 years we became the best of friends. A friendship that was valued and nurtured. Being with him was truly like be-

million for project costs. Staff identified 50% for wastewater and water projects, 23% for transportation, 12% for civic facilities, 9% for parks and 6% for drainage. Revenues for the program are projected at $800 million. The city also has $85.9 million in unfunded projects, which include the College Boulevard extension (estimated last year at $30 million) and the Carlsbad Boulevard realignment ($26.1 million). Kristina Ray, director of community engagement, explained a number of factors that show the city's future revenues are not in line with expenditures, such as fewer large-scale developments and associated fees. Haber said city staff has identified the need for additional revenue streams as the 10-year forecast shows a deficit coming by the Fiscal Year 2024-25. “The directed staff to undertake a revenue study to identify revenue enhancements,” Haber said of

ing with Elvis. He was larger than life. The fun was immeasurable. Tark was beloved. On the many hundreds of times we were in attendance at great events, gatherings, parties and functions, he was so gracious and so in tune with the room. He loved people and he loved conversation. His humor was genuine and his laugh contagious. People migrated to him. He was a magnet. But more so, he was a basketball coach and a damn good one. He prided himself on teaching the game the right way. I have hundreds of memories and life experiences with him that I could share. Never a dull moment and many, many laughs were always a part of the deal. He was just one tremendous human being. Like the time he drove to the Thomas & Mack Center, which succeeded the Convention Center as UNLV’s home court. On this occasion, he arrived only to find the place empty and locked. He forgot it was Christmas Day. Tark always praised his wife, Lois, for leading him to the education route (Fresno State) where he the council’s action last year before adopting the budget. “The general approach is looking at the typical revenue enhancements like transient occupancy taxes and various fees. Cannabis was identified as one opportunity that other municipalities are allowing to occur in their jurisdictions.” According to Haber, a one-cent sales tax, if approved by the council and voters, would be in perpetuity unless rescinded through a ballot measure or other legislative action. Resident Vicky Syage railed against the proposed tax during the council’s April 5 meeting and questioned the city's hiring of more than 50 new employees, 30 of which are in management positions, over the past three years. Typically, management salaries range from $100,000 to $300,000, according to the city’s budget. Syage said the city has always prided itself on being fiscal sound, but now is going in the opposite direction. “It appears the city has put on some weight in the

and Sid Craig, husband of Jenny Craig, were roommates. Or when the Chairman of the Board himself, Frank Sinatra, called Tarkanian personally and asked why his bodyguard (Jilly Rizzo) had been taken off the back door pass list. Tark thought it was a prank call. But it was really Sinatra calling and thanking him in advance. Jilly was immediately reinstated. When the man who helps you raise millions for your athletic programs calls, you listen. Or when his team landed in Laramie, Wyoming, 7,165 feet above sea level. One of his wacky players ran to him before exiting the bus, asking if the Rebels could play at this elevation, noting its thin air. Tark replied, “That’s outside. We’re playing inside.” He created Gucci Row for top line casino executives to have a great seat to the hardest ticket in town, an event filled with indoor pyrotechnics and a light show that have since been copied by every NBA franchise. UNLV had a consecutive sellout streak that lasted years. He might have

been recognized as the most powerful man in Las Vegas. The only thing, he didn’t know it. All he knew was that he was a basketball coach. Never a losing season in his career and over 700 wins at three universities. In 19 seasons at UNLV, he was 509-105. Basketball fans adored the Runnin’ Rebels. They built their brand and ironclad following from the ground up, and Tarkanian was the center of attention and in command. He never disappointed. He would bite on a wet towel the entire game. Something that began when he was a high school basketball coach in Pasadena. People still remember that more than the fact that he led UNLV to the NCAA championship in 1990 in addition to four Final Four appearances. He sued the NCAA and won. They tortured him for years and pressured UNLV to fire him. His own school president, Robert Maxson, jealous of the attention and love that was showered on Tark, turned on him. But one thing always remained: Las Vegas was Tark’s town and he didn’t go easy. He brought a losing town to national prominence. He was their guy. Tarkanian was inducted in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013 after years of questioning if he’d ever get indue to his decades-long legal battle with the NCAA. He was wrong. In a town known for its stars, he was the brightest one. One who roamed the sidelines of a basketball court like none other. A basketball genius, and born to coach. Tark passed on Feb. 11, 2015, in Las Vegas. The Strip went dark. And its light will never be the same again.

riving through Encinitas, I noticed Gelati & Peccati Pizza under construction where a burger joint used to be. It’s G&P’s second San Diego location, and is opening at a busy intersection on the main drag. I’m a pizza lover from way back, so this is good news. Only… Mr. Moto’s Pizza is directly across the street. As the new place isn’t open yet, I couldn’t compare menus or prices. Assuming they’re similar, the new kid on the block will be wise to: • Promote with coupons, radio, and social media • Donate to charitable events • Hold an open house to welcome the neighbors and influencers • Visit local groups, like Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce The new guys have a huge opportunity based on their novelty. Lots of folks will check them out once, and the trick will be to keep them coming back. Mr. Moto will obviously also need to up their game. Because if the existing operation doesn’t market themselves more aggressively and creatively, the new kids will eat their lunch. Sorry about that! This is a timely reminder that no matter what you sell, there’s always someone ready to muscle in on your turf. You must constantly acquire new customers to offset the attrition of peo-

mr. marketing rob weinberg ple leaving you to buy elsewhere. All of which boils down to this; just doing things the way you’ve always done them doesn’t fly anymore. I promise that, regardless of your industry, there’s someone gunning for you. To survive and thrive, you’d better have a few tricks in your bag that you can pull out on a moment’s notice. This means understanding your customer, your product, and your market. It requires an ability to look at other industries and markets for ideas that can be applied to your business. It mandates regularly updating your marketing plan, and demands a willingness to think a little differently than you have in the past. The good news: if you’re prepared for the inevitable day when new competitors appear, you’ll already be positioned to beat back their challenges…or at the least, learn to co-exist. But if you stubbornly take an attitude of “We never had to do this before,” you’re asking for trouble when that new guy finally opens his door.

However, the survey is a method to measure residents' interest in legalized cannabis. After Prop 64 passed, the City Council unanimously voted against legalization, which included retail, testing, distribution and manufacturing facilities. However, the city does allow specific uses as permitted by federal law, Haber said. Carlsbad would be the fourth city in North County to legalize cannabis after Vista, Oceanside and Encinitas. However, Vista and Encinitas both needed voters to approve referendums to legalize recreational cannabis after their councils opted to vote no on legalizing in their cities.
