Allman cleared of wrongdoing SDUHSD paid firm $49K to probe misconduct claims By Laura Place
ENCINITAS — San Dieguito Union High School District officials announced last week that Trustee Michael Allman has been cleared of any wrongdoing following an investigation into claims of misconduct levied against him by the former superintendent earlier this year.
ENCINITAS — A federal judge earlier this month dismissed a lawsuit alleging unlawful housing discrimination in Encinitas, leaving several low-income residents the opRANCHO tion to appeal the ruling to SFNEWS the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit or pursue their case in state court. District Judge Marilyn Huff issued a July 19 order in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, dismissing three causes of action alleging violations of the federal Fair Housing Act against the city of Encinitas and 13 other defendants, including developers, real estate and mortgage brokers and “shell companies.” Huff dismissed the claims with prejudice, meaning the complaints cannot be resubmitted in federal court. The lawsuit, first filed by Escondido-based attorney Anna Hysell in Sept. 2021, alleged developers and lenders had conspired to sell two designated affordable homes — 1317 Portola Road and 1412 Mackinnon Avenue — to wealthy investors instead of dozens of qualified, very-lowincome applicants. The complaint further alleged the city of Encinitas was complicit in the unlawful home sales by allowing them to take place under its afford-
Former superintendent Cheryl James-Ward filed a complaint with the district back in March alleging harassment and discrimination by Allman based on her gender, along with eight other ALLMAN claims that Allman man used profanity against her, undermined her publicly and privately, pressured her to take action against certain em-
ployees, and attempted to control her role as superintendent. James-Ward was placed on administrative leave in April and fired from her superintendent position in late June following an outcry over her remarks which many said negatively stereotyped Chinese families in the district. James-Ward has since stated her intention to file a lawsuit against the district, claiming in an interTURN TO ALLMAN ON 31

Encinitas butterfly farm disputes monarch’s ‘endangered’ label Group’s claim not yet an official U.S. designation By Jacqueline Covey

(east and west) last year. Flanagan finds it strange the international group’s release received so much attention. Flanagan said that while much data exists on the monarch, many conservation methods are theory-based. In 2021, the North American migratory monarch saw a notable population increase, according to the Monarch Joint Venture, which will submit its research during the species assessment for 2024. In its Monarch Research Review, the organization noted the western monarch population has grown to almost 250,000 from 2020, still dramatically below historical records. Butterfly Farms, incorporated in 2013 by Flanagan and Tom Merriman and located on Saxony Road, works in partnerships with Carlsbad Fish and Wildlife Office, the University of California Los Angeles and other universities and conservation experts to research sensitive, threatened and endangered but-
terfly species — including the monarch. Flanagan said the group’s article is “not borne out by the migratory numbers,” adding that the western population may also be seeing a shift in its
on scientific findings from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other agencies, Flanagan isn’t sure it would help. Unlike his work with the endangered Laguna Mountain Skipper, a butterfly that lives high in the mountains, Flanagan said the monarch populations wouldn’t be best protected under a plan implemented by the Endangered Species Act. Under the Endangered Species Act, an animal or plant is prohibited from various public interactions. “Nobody can go near TURN TO MONARCH ON 15

that does little to set legal protections for the butterfly. “There’s been a steep and dramatic decline in western migratory butterflies,” Darst said. “We have already determined that it is a candidate [for an Endangered Species listing] and will do a full reassessment of the science in 2024.” However, not all in the butterfly world would welcome an “endangered species” designation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Adding species to the list of threatened and endangered species under the Endangered Species Act is “solely based on the biological status,” Darst said and required thorough species-specific assessments. Once listed, an animal can be either endangered (close to extinction) or threatened. “It’s not a fact that they’re coming into extinction,” said Pat Flanagan, of Butterfly Farms in Encinitas, noting an uptick in both migratory populations

According to Flanagan, non-migratory monarchs, and those that are choosing not to migrate, are not being counted. “There are reports of monarchs around all year and big populations in San Diego, especially on the coast and in L.A. along the coast,” Flanagan said. However, Darst said research has found resident butterflies may be a sign of disease and is not a population that could maintain monarch butterflies over time.

ENCINITAS — A group’s recent “endangered” declaration of the monarch butterfly has caused a bit of a local stir, especially among experts in Encinitas. The “endangered” label by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, a global team of environmental experts, picked up national attention after a July press release drew the public’s eye to a severe population decline of the orange-andblack migratory butterfly — a more than 90% drop in four decades. However, the monarch is not endangered in the United States, at least not yet. This year, the monarch has been determined a candidate for protection under the Endangered Species Act in the United States by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. And in the fiscal year 2024, the pollinator’s status will be reevaluated for final determination, according to Cat Darst, an assistant field supervisor for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Ventura. Scientists have noted declines in monarch populations overwintering in Mexico (from Canada) and California (Colorado). The eastern, larger group is measured by its density and has seen a drastic loss in hundreds of millions by the acre in the past 20 years. The California monarch has declined from 4.5 million butterflies in the 1980s to fewer than 2,000 in 2020. “That’s a really serious population crash,” Darst said. Darst said the Fish and Wildlife Service is aware of the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s "endangered" designation for monarchs but explained

With change upon us, new county budget helps prepare
By Terra Lawson-Remer
f you told me three years ago I would spend weeks on end isolated at home, gas would cost $6 a gallon, I’d be watching a war in Europe, and reproductive freedom would be illegal or close to it in a majority of the nation, I wouldn’t have believed you. But the reality is that our world has changed — and this change is being thrust upon us from all directions. With the right planning and investments, we can weather that change — and create a stronger, more resilient San Diego County. This was my goal when I voted last month to approve the County of San Diego’s new $7.35 billion budget. It’s a resiliency budget — an investment plan to make sure that San Diego is ready not only to respond to the change we’re experiencing but to enact the change we need. The new county budget furthers the work we’ve done, and continue to do, to make county government more equitable, sustainable, responsive and representative of our communities. As we feel the heat from rising temperatures, this budget invests $100 million to fight climate change, expand county parks and community gardens, acquire
land for the preservation of natural habitats, plant trees, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and set up “cool zones” around our region for you to enjoy air conditioning for free. As we grow more concerned about sewage in our oceans, this budget invests $40 million in improving our stormwater infrastructure to keep pollution from our cities from flowing onto our beaches. As we see people struggling on the street, perhaps talking to themselves, this budget pays for new Mobile Crisis Response Teams staffed with trained psychiatric clinicians to respond quickly — allowing our sheriffs and police officers to focus on fighting crime. As we are squeezed by inflation and need a little extra help to make ends meet, this budget will fund new resources to help residents access food and health care through programs like CalFresh and Medi-Cal. As we witness wildfires more frequently threaten our homes, this budget bolsters our firefighting fleet with a new dual-engine helicopter with the ability to fly at night and carry more water and emergency responders. But we’re not waiting for danger to arrive at our doorsteps — we’re also in-
vesting $2 million to reduce the risk of wildfire through vegetation management, improved evacuation routes, and fire breaks. And as we venture out more to reconnect with our neighbors, you can experience the millions of dollars in funding set aside in this budget to support vital programs, such as 24-hour rapid testing to measure beach water quality; $250,000 for San Dieguito Park to improve the safety of the bridge and rehabilitate the three lookout towers; and $6 million for land acquisition, design, and environmental review for the long-awaited San Dieguito Local Park — a new 5-acre park that will include a soccer field, court sports, and a playground. If you know an organization that is doing important work that should receive funding, please have them reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are a resilient region — and this budget reflects that spirit. We can’t always control what comes our way. But we will continue to work hard locally to be prepared for winds of change, no matter where they come from, so we can chart a better future for us all. Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer represents District 3 on the Board of Supervisors.
Will council recuse from Marea Village appeal?
read with great interest your recent coverage about the Marea Village Leucadia project appeal of the Encinitas Planning Commission’s recent approval of the project. Thank you to The Coast News team for providing cutting edge reporting and timely and important local news over the years. I intend on renewing my subscription to your free paper, in support of your good work and free publication. At 6 p.m. on Aug. 10, the Encinitas City Council will consider a community appeal of the super-mammoth Marea Village project on Coast Highway 101 in Leucadia.
The project boasts a 30room hotel, 92 apartments, parking for more than 250 cars and retail and commercial space next to the new Alila Marea Beach Resort. In my view, ALL of the members on the City Council should recuse themselves from the vote, and leave the appeal instead to the California Coastal Commission. After all, the city has surrendered “local control” of zoning and development to Sacramento politicians and “state housing law.” Let the Coastal Commission decide if this project checks all the boxes for the environmental impact report, CEQA and safe public access to the beach.
The recusal by our local elected officials seems necessary not only because Mayor Catherine Blakespear received campaign contributions from the project’s developer, Larry Jackel, but Councilmember Kelli Hinze also received campaign contributions from Jackel and his wife in the 2020 election. Additionally, perhaps it’s cozy relations with the Marea Village developer that has prompted the mayor and council to hold the annual State of the City event for the second straight year at Alila Marea Beach Resort in September.

he idea that oil companies and gasoline refiners could gouge Californians — and other Americans to a lesser degree — by as much as 100% of the previous price of gasoline seemed utterly preposterous until February. That’s when President Biden slapped an embargo on Russian oil, depriving California refineries of between 2% and 3% of the supplies they had been using. Average pump prices instantly rose from $4.70 per gallon across the state to above $6. Later, in some places, prices even topped $9 per gallon, about twice their price just six months ago. That’s gouging, pure and simple. Yes, the worldwide price of oil was up, but not in anywhere near such large proportions. Many citizens are still making excuses for oil companies, but their financial reports make it clear they are reaping windfall profits in the billions of dollars. Now comes a new report that indicates the money motorists are losing to the cartel-like oil industry is just a fraction of what consumption of oil and gas really costs us, when all the wrinkles and ripples are figured in. How does $10 trillion by the year 2045 sound? That’s the figure arrived at by the Consumer Watchdog advocacy group, whose analysts are the first to even attempt figuring all the expenses that are and will be created by use of oil and natural gas over the next 20 yearsplus. The report gains credibility from the fact that Consumer Watchdog is the outfit whose 1987 ballot initiative curtailing insurance prices in California now saves people here more than $3 billion per year. That’s an average of almost $80 per year per Californian, of all ages and ethnicities. So it can be a mistake to ignore the group’s oil cost estimates, as virtually all California media have since issuance of the report in late spring. Here are just some of the annual costs listed in the report from use of oil and natural gas over the next 23 years: $94.2 billion from wildfires and drought; $1.4 billion in heat-related deaths indirectly caused by California oil wells; $339 billion for smog controls. That’s a total annual cost of $434.6 billion for using and drilling petroleum, or $10 trillion over 23 years, about 70% more than it costs to run the federal government for one year — including huge
programs like Medicare, Social Security and the military. Are those figures realistic? Look at the wildfire number: Despite all its mitigation moves of the last 25 years, California is the No. 2 emitter of greenhouse gases among U.S. states, surpassed only by Texas. The state Air Resources Board says 85% of the greenhouse gases produced here stem from production and use of fossil fuels, helping further both dry conditions and extreme heat that have exacerbated the state’s pre-existing problems with wildfires, vastly driving up property damage, lives lost and firefighting costs. “One third of the costs of drought (and the fires it furthers) can be attributed to greenhouse gas emissions caused by (burning) fossil fuels,” says the report. Global warming driven by oil use will add to the costs listed, too, by raising sea levels and destroying further billions of dollars in property before 2045. Then there’s the smog mostly created by both vehicles and oil- or gas-fired electric generating plants. Costs of treating emphysema, not to mention creation of electric vehicles and other smog-fighting measures, already amount to more than damage from wildfires. It all makes the state’s efforts to cut greenhouse gases via a cap-and-trade program, smokestack filters and other tactics look puny. What’s more, the estimated $10 trillion, 23year cost of using and drilling oil and natural gas does not include what motorists spend for gasoline, the price of which has fallen from its peak, but is never again likely to sink to pre-February levels. All these numbers matter only if their sheer shock value causes actions. But that’s not likely, as this report now looks to be ignored, just as the state auditor’s springtime report on the unreliability of California housing need estimates never spurred so much as a word of reaction from either Gov. Newsom or state Attorney General Rob Bonta. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

San Diego County’s last large printing press to close Vista facility will shut down after 33 years By Jordan P. Ingram
VISTA — The last large-scale commercial printing press in San Diego County is closing its doors. Advanced Web Offset, or AWO, a printing company operating in Vista since 1989, informed its customers last week the private corporation has merged with Orange County-based Advantage ColorGraphics, one of the largest sheetfed and web offset printers in the western U.S., according to the company’s website. As a result of the merger, the company’s full web offset production facility in Vista, which produced everything from newspapers and magazines to catalogs and inserts for clients across the San Diego region, will permanently shut down operations on Aug. 12. Several local publications, including The Coast News and Pickett Fence Media Group, will now consider whether to remain with Advantage ColorGraphics or find a new web offset printing press outside of the region to handle their larger orders. Advantage ColorGraphics declined to comment on the deal. A letter notifying customers of the new merger indicated printed materials will be produced from Advantage’s printing press in Anaheim in the next two weeks. “We are proud to share with you that, after 33 years of business, Advanced Web Offset has decided to merge our business with a company that has the same business ethics and talents... that we do,” the letter reads. “Other than your publications coming off a different press, your account files and history including your ag-

ing’s along with your print and delivery windows will remain as you now enjoy.” The written notice, authored by Tom Ling, owner of Advantage ColorGraphics, and AWO’s vice president Dan Armstrong and general manager Chase Shoemaker, also states the
printing company “will continue to service your account as we transition each of you into Advantage’s modern expansive operations.” A spokesperson at Advanced Web Offset confirmed the North County printing press would no lon-
ger be running after Aug. 12 and declined to disclose which publications would be impacted by the change citing confidentiality reasons. Web offset printing is a high-volume printing technique where large rolls of paper are fed through
a web press, also called a roll-fed press. The uninterrupted stream of paper forms a “web” through the machine. Plated images containing text and photos are inked and transferred (or “offset”) to a rubber blanket before they are stamped
on the rolls of paper running through the machine. While there are dozens, if not hundreds, of commercial printing companies operating in San Diego County, none have the capacity to handle the bulk of printed work required for newspapers and magazines.

Carlsbad advances plans for Veterans Park By Steve Puterski

Oceanside rezones land for Tierra Norte Planners help clear the way for up to 400 homes By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — Nearly 26 acres of land along North River Road has been rezoned to make way for up to 400 future homes in a yet-to-be-determined development project. The Oceanside Planning Commission unanimously approved amendments to change two adjacent parcels of land at 4617 and 4665 North River Road from light industrial to medium-density residential and to establish a Planned Block Development (PBD) Overlay District, which is “intended to permit flexibility in landuse regulations and site development standards” for future developments. The project, referred to as Tierra Norte, is located on the south side of North River Road between Avenida Descanso and Calle Montecito in the North Valley Neighborhood Planning Area. Dan Niebaum, vice president of The Lightfoot Planning Group, represented the property owners SoCal AG Properties and Nagata Brothers on July 25 in front of commissioners “This is an opportunity to repurpose this underutilized infill site to provide realistic, future housing options for the community,” Niebaum said. According to Niebaum, it’s “highly unlikely” another industrial project would be successful at the site, which has been historically used for agricultural packing and growing crops. Niebaum also said the residential use would synchronize better with the other surrounding residential uses, ranging from low to higher densities than the site proposes. Sergio Madera, the city planner overseeing the project, said a residential project value would be much higher at $181.28 million compared to a $98.05 million industrial project value. Madera also said the city’s revenue benefits would be higher at
$15.3 million with a residential project compared to $2.2 million from an industrial project. “(Industrial is) not the best use of the site,” Madera said. While the density change means Tierra Norte could have up to 500 units, the PBD Overlay limits it to 400. “You could experience much higher development in the area,” Niebaum said. Still, the language in Planned Block Development Overlay doesn’t prevent a future developer from invoking the state’s Density Bonus Law to build even more units there.“That’s a possibility that could occur,” Madera said. “Nothing in the law would preclude that.” What the PBD can do is serve as a reference point for developers and city officials to make new and existing developments compatible, encourage “high-quality design elements,” and allow for different designs and architectural styles, Several nearby site residents voiced their concerns and opposition to the change, citing existing problems with traffic congestion and parking in the area. “Our area is hardly able to support the existing density,” said Michael White, a resident of the Rancho Pacifica neighborhood. “The development’s proposed density is a great concern to us.” White highlighted the area’s “extreme” traffic gridlock during peak hours between Douglas Drive and College Boulevard, the challenge of evacuations during the Lilac Fire in 2017 and surrounding neighborhoods overwhelmed with overflow parking. “Four hundred additional homes on a 25.6-acre site can only exacerbate that situation,” White said. Both Madera and Niebaum emphasized there is no development project being proposed at this time, only a change in zoning and land use laws to allow for future development. Madera said the city would know more about what mitigation efforts for traffic, parking and emergency exits must be taken once a project is underway.
CARLSBAD — A proposed 93-acre park dedicated to American service members cleared an essential hurdle on July 26 after the Carlsbad City Council approved a final master plan and development permits for the long-awaited project. Veterans Memorial Park, which consists of nearly 100 acres of open space off Cannon Road along Faraday Avenue, will feature approximately 60 acres of preserve and roughly 40 acres of parkland. The sprawling park includes a memorial plaza, three playgrounds, two bike tracks, outdoor exercise and picnic areas, trails and public art, among other features. According to the city’s park performance standards, each of the city’s quadrants will have a surplus of at least 14 acres of park space. Kyle Lancaster, Carlsbad’s director of Parks and Recreation, said the city also has 80 acres of park projects in the pipeline, “Veterans Memorial Park will serve a regional need,” Lancaster said. Lancaster said the next step is to prepare the bid with an estimated project cost of $30.2 million funded by the Community Facilities District No. 1, a citywide district created in 1991 to pay for facilities, improvements and highway interchanges. The district levied a one-time special tax lien on vacant properties to help finance the development. Veterans Memorial Park, expected to be completed by 2025, is dedicated to service members, including a plaza with commemorative plaques, memorial panels and a flagpole to honor those who served in the U.S. armed forces. The project was conceived in 1986 as a centralized park for all residents to use, Lancaster said. Suzie Murphy, executive director of the San Diego Mountain Biking Association, and Ben Stone, trails coordinator for the organization, said the park, especially its bike tracks, is a welcome addition to the city and North County. Murphy said a stateof-the-art facility would be a big draw for the cycling group’s more than 300 Carlsbad residents. Currently, riders interested in visiting a bike park must travel south to San Diego or even further southeast to Sweetwater Summit Regional Park in Bonita. “I stood here eight years ago talking about bike parks and advocating,” Stone said. “The message is still the same. We are very much in favor of this bike park. We’ve given a lot of input and encouraged our members who live in Carlsbad to be part of this process.” However, there was

some pushback against moving forward with the development of Veterans Park. Diane Nygaard of Preserve Calavera said the park does not do enough to address climate change, citing inadequate vehicle miles traveled analysis, lack of easy access and no solar panels on structures. Nygaard also questioned the park’s allocation of acreage, arguing approximately half of the area is considered protected habitat and only the developed acres should be allotted for the city’s parkland.
Lancaster said other parks with adjacent preserves are counted toward the city’s park standards, a practice known as the joint allocation method that dates back to the 1990s. Examples of other parks using the joint allocation method include Leo Carrillo Ranch and Hidden Canyon parks. Councilwoman Teresa Acosta, who represents the city’s southernmost district, said she wasn’t interested in building another park in northern Carlsbad, some of which include Magee, Holiday, Pine Avenue
and Buena Vista parks. However, Acosta, who has previously voiced support for a controversial “Ponto Park” proposal in her district, eventually conceded that plans for Veterans Memorial Park should move forward. “There have been some changes in thought on our development of our city when it comes to parks,” Acosta said. “This community is one that loves parks and neighborhood parks that we don’t have to drive to. For now, I’m very excited about Veterans Memorial Park.”

Carlsbad officials frustrated over SDG&E service center Site relocation process yielded no viable results By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Several council members recently expressed frustration over San Diego Gas & Electric’s lack of progress in finding a new permanent home for its North Coast Service Center, ultimately giving the utility just under three months to find a viable option. The council approved the 11-week timeframe during its July 26 meeting after nearly one hour of discussion with SDG&E and NRG Energy officials. The hunt for a new maintenance yard location, roughly six years past its deadline, stems from a council-approved settlement agreement between the city of Carlsbad, AERIAL FOOTAGE of the Carlsbad Energy Center and Agua Hedionda Lagoon in 2020. The peaker plant, completed in 2019, SDG&E and NRG Energy is just northeast of SDG&E’s Construction and Operations center. According to city officials, SDG&E has yet to find a permanent replacement site for its service center and maintenance yard. Photo by Anthony Mata in 2014.
Under the terms of the agreement, NRG Energy was required to facilitate the decommissioning and demolition of its Encina Power Station and the construction of the Carlsbad Energy Center, a 632-megawatt natural gas peaker plant. NRG Energy, a Texas-based energy company, is the current landowner of 90-plus acres adjacent to the SDG&E service center, including Agua Hedionda Lagoon. The agreement also calls for SDG&E to move
its service center, allowing the city to take ownership of the current service center location along Cannon Road and a parcel on Agua Hedionda Lagoon’s northwestern shore. The agreement stipulates that the new service center, used for fleet maintenance, repairs, emergency services and training, must be situated west of El Camino Real with good freeway access. In addition, the parcel must be relatively flat, with at least 10-12 acres to allow for a 30,000 to 32,000-square foot new building, according to Gary Barberio, Carlsbad’s deputy city manager for community services. All three parties were responsible for agreeing upon a final location for the new North Coast Service Center by 2016. Supposing all three parties agree to a new site, NRG Energy would fund up to $22.5 million for the public utility to construct a new service center, and the city would take ownership of SDG&E’s land adjacent to the former Encina Power Station, Barberio said.
SDG&E over its perceived inability to identify potential service center sites, noting that the. city hasn’t received incentives (such as land ownership) outlined in the agreement after hosting the power plant'simpact on the community. “We agreed to do something we were adamantly opposed to only because we were supposed to get this bundle of benefits, which we haven’t got yet,” Barberio said.

If a new site is not agreed upon, NRG Energy will pay the city $10 million and forgo its financial obligation to SDG&E. In 2021, SDG&E and the city had suggested relocating the service center to the parking lot of The Shoppes at Carlsbad. However, Joe Gabaldon, public affairs manager for SDG&E, said a full year of analysis revealed the site was unacceptable
due to flooding concerns from Buena Vista Creek. “Along the way, many issues were identified and addressed,” Gabaldon said. “SDG&E hired leading consultants to review varying engineering studies. These experts and our staff have determined that the site and associated access with continue to have significant risks to flooding.” The council and staff expressed frustration with
The council’s discussion turned to a potential site at “Lot 11,” a roughly 20-acre parcel several hundred yards east of the parking lot at the Carlsbad Strawberry Fields along Cannon Road. In addition to Lot 11, Gabaldon said SDG&E had identified two other sites west of Interstate 5 along Cannon Road. In addition to the two other sites, Mayor Matt Hall stressed the continued site analysis must be focused on Lot 11, saying if SDG&E does not go with the parcel, “they better have more than one excuse.” “I think there is a real
willingness for this council to work toward a future where somehow all of that moves off that site,” Hall said of the current service center location. “That has huge value in many different ways.” In addition to finding a suitable location, another challenge for the involved parties is rising construction costs. Adam Smith, SDG&E’s corporate real estate portfolio manager, said while the company has already completed site plans and renderings, preliminary analysis projects a higher price than initially estimated, creating a significant — but unspecified — funding gap. According to Smith, the construction cost on Lot 11 exceeded $22.5 million in 2019. During the conversation, the frustration amongst elected officials was evident. Councilwoman Teresa Acosta lambasted the utility company for allegedly dragging its feet, arguing the city did not agree to cover the funding gap associated with the relocation and construction of the utility’s service center. Barberio confirmed the city is not obligated to allocate any funds for relocation or construction of the new service center under the agreement. “The agreement was forged with the idea that we’d find a place to relocate the facilities,” Acosta. “It’s why the city of Carlsbad has been working so hard. I want to be clear that the city of Carlsbad is not signing up for that gap. The taxpayers of Carlsbad are not signing up for that.” Councilman Keith Blackburn said it seems like any time the city identified a potential site, SDG&E rejected it. Gabaldon noted the city has also rejected proposed sites, and all three entities must agree on a final location. Blackburn urged SDG&E to return with a good location in approximately three months so the process could move forward with all parties in alignment.

REGION — A man who sold fentanyl-laced pills that led to the death of a La Jolla woman was sentenced July 28 to 15 years in state prison. Joshua Alan Breslow, 54, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and drug possession charges for providing pills that led to the Sept. 18, 2020, death of 49-year-old Sally Manchester Ricchiuti, daughter of developer and former San Diego Union-Tribune owner Doug Manchester. Prosecutors allege Breslow, who was previously charged with murder in the case, provided Ricchiuti and others with doctored pills, despite being aware
of the potentially fatal consequences. Deputy District Attorney Joel Madero said that after Breslow's arrest in connection with Ricchiuti’s death, he bailed out of jail and continued dealing pills. The prosecutor also alleged that Breslow falsely assured his customers that he had tested his pills to ensure they didn’t contain fentanyl and reached out to a source in order to secure doctored lab results. In a statement at his sentencing hearing, Breslow called the victim “one of my best and closest friends” and said “not a day goes by when I don’t feel contrition.”
Though he said the past two years he has spent in jail have been “grueling” and a “brutal experience,” Breslow said, “I deserve it.” Breslow apologized to the victim’s family members in attendance and said he plans to speak publicly about the dangers of opioid abuse when he is released. Manchester, who said his daughter “remains with us each and every day,” told Breslow, “Josh, I appreciate very much your reaching out.” Molly Ricchiuti, the victim's eldest daughter, called her mother “my best friend” and “a beautiful, vivacious soul lost to a world that so desperately needs her type of spirit.”

Del Lago grad gets full ride to Notre Dame By Samantha Nelson
ESCONDIDO — In just a few weeks, recent Del Lago Academy graduate and small-business owner Rita Sauceda will travel across the country to begin college after earning a prestigious scholarship to pay for it all. Sauceda, who is heading off to Notre Dame on a QuestBridge National College Match s c h o l arship, learned about the opportunity before her senior year of SAUCEDA high school after her counselor, Jose Ramirez, encouraged her to apply. QuestBridge is a national nonprofit organization that connects low-income students with some of the top colleges and universities in the country. For recipients like Sauceda, the scholarship covers a full, four years of paid tuition, fees, room and board, books, supplies and travel expenses — a scholarship worth over $200,000. Sauceda applied for the scholarship despite being nervous about some of those top colleges being so far from home. She had been looking at colleges that were closer and more affordable for her family. “I knew my family was going to do everything possible to see me go to college, but I didn’t want to burden them,” she said. As a student at Del Lago, Escondido’s public magnet school, Sauceda was highly involved and active in several extracurricular groups, including serving as president of the MEChA Club (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán), a student organization that promotes higher education and appreciation for Chicano/Latino culture and history. Sauceda was also involved in the Associated Student Body (ASB) and was a member of the school’s Random Acts of Kindness Club. Sauceda dances with two ballet folklorico groups outside of school, Ballet Folklorico Caliztlan in Escondido and Wa-Kushma Folk Production in Chula Vista. As a young entrepreneur who wanted to help out her family during the pandemic, Sauceda ran a toy shop with her aunt out of Mexicali as well as her own screen-printing business in her home in Escondido. Not long after applying, Sauceda found out she was a finalist for the scholarship, at which point she was asked to rank her top school choices.

Camino Del Mar inches ahead Voter-approved mixed-use project expected in 2025 By Laura Place
DEL MAR —Developers of a mixed-use project on Camino Del Mar can proceed with pursuing permits and beginning construction after the Del Mar City Council ratified development and regulatory housing agreements for the project this week. The planned project at 941 Camino Del Mar, a blighted vacant lot that formerly housed a gas station, involves a two-story development including eight residential units, with two to be set aside as low-income units, and over 4,000 square feet of commercial space. An overhaul of the site has been in the works for over a decade. A specific plan for the development was approved by local voters in 2018, replacing a previous 2008 specific plan for a project called Garden Del Mar on the property that never came to fruition. Many residents implored the city council to adopt the agreements at their July 25 meeting and finally set the project into motion, after concerns about affordable housing requirements led the council to table the issue on July 11. “We have lived here long enough to remember the old gas station that once sat on this lot, and then its demolition, and then the long and circuitous route to finally building something on the site,” wrote resident Anne Farrell. “It is time for this project to move forward.” The project will be the first of its kind in Del Mar, with applicant Kitchell Development agreeing to implement “exceptional public benefits” in the city’s downtown area as a condition of developing the project outside of usual building standards. These benefits, outlined in a 10-year development agreement with the city, include around $137,000 in total contributions to help fund the city’s streetscape plan, Safe Railroad Crossing and Coastal Rail Trail projects, public art, speed limit radar signs, a future city shuttle system and the Shores Park Master Plan project. Kitchell will also col-
lect transient occupancy tax for any residential hospitality uses of the non-affordable residential units, according to the development agreement. Don Glatthorn, vice president of Kitchell, said they have had interest from some potential commercial tenants, but that they are not ready to confirm any until after construction begins, with permits still to be obtained in the meantime. The changing economic landscape has made it hard to accurately estimate the project cost at this point, he said. “We understand there is a difficult economy facing us in this time, we fully recognize that. Yes, we’re concerned about inflation, we haven't priced the project yet. We will get these construction documents submitted for permit, we will process for permit, and upon having permits received, we will then price the project and move forward,” Glatthorn said.
Mar, we believe in the Torrey Pines Mesa and all the jobs up there, and we believe there are great things ahead for this area and for this site and we’re excited to move forward. Yes, it can absolutely be done within seven years — I'll be very disappointed personally if it's not done within two and a half.” After the July 11 meeting, Barbara Kautz, Del Mar’s special counsel for affordable housing matters, determined that there is no current risk of 941 Camino Del Mar becoming a byright project because the two affordable units are not accounted for in the 6th cycle. Kautz’s assurance led the council to unanimously approve the project agreements on July 25 with little discussion.

The two affordable units included in the project are expected to help chip away at the city’s hefty affordable housing obligations. The council’s adopted regulatory housing agreement for the property requires the units to be owner- or renter-occupied and be under a 55-year deed restriction as affordable units. The city will have first dibs on purchasing the properties to rent out to qualified households, or can opt to put them up for sale to a nonprofit or qualified household. Concerns from council members about affordable housing requirements delayed a vote on the agreements when they were first brought before the council for approval on July 11. Terry Gaasterland and Tracy Martinez both worried that if the project’s affordable housing units were not constructed within the 6th Housing Element Cycle ending in 2029, it would be able to move forward under a by-right approval process without the need for discretionary approval from the city. Glatthorn assured the city that he was dedicated to developing this project as soon as possible. “We are not in this for the short term as you know,” he said.“We believe in Del

Aggressive summer equal winning fall? sports talk jay paris
he Moonlight Beach guy burned the candles at both ends to make the San Diego Padres the talk of baseball. Encinitas’ A.J. Preller, the Padres’ frenetic general manager, pulled multiple rabbits from his brown-andgold hat. With a flurry of moves this week, the Padres won Major League Baseball’s annual swap meet. Now their aim is to reach the World Series and beyond. Preller sent the Padres fans over, well, the moon by acquiring outfielder Juan Soto, first baseman Josh Bell, closer Josh Hader and all-everything Brandon Drury. With Preller’s wheeling and dealing, the Padres excited a region without ace Joe Musgrove throwing a pitch. Musgrove signing a five-year, $100 million deal had the shelf life of a fish taco when Preller stunned the industry. When you heard that the sensational Soto was San Diego-bound, it was a remember-where-you-were moment if sports is in your orbit. With the Soto rumors turning to speculation and then becoming breaking news, Soto’s arrival delivered a jolt through San Di-

ego County. If you know, you know what it felt like. The Soto acquisition was like recalling the moment when linebacker Dennis Gibson swatted down a pass to advance the San Diego Chargers to Super Bowl 29? Remember Tony Gwynn slapping his 3,000th hit in Montreal? The team’s greatest hitter reached the decorated milestone with his backers leaning on every pitch. The Soto deal brought back the feelings that those significant San Diego sports moments delivered then and now. Preller’s aggressive play was that grand in snatching Soto, an unbelievable young player the likes of which seldom become available. The Padres’ moves with the Washington Nationals for Soto and Bell, and with the Milwaukee Brewers for Hader, and the Cincinnati Reds for Dru-
ry, weren’t cheap. A boatload of prospects with high ceilings and proven major leaguers went the other direction. And the Padres, if judging by their actions, could care less. That’s a bit of a stretch because it was a big-time haul that Preller relinquished. But Preller is content to settle with a future Hall of Famer in the 23-year-old Soto, and All-Stars in Bell and Hader. He’s pushed all of the team’s chips to the middle of the table, as well as convincing owner Peter Seidler to keep churning the roster. Preller shrugged about the expenditure of personnel, asked Seidler to sit down as he explained how much all this would cost, and rolled the dice. Not only was Preller’s eight-player deal for Soto solid, he went above and beyond to guard against the Los Angeles Dodgers swooping in to snatch Soto. The Padres were set to wel-
come All-Star pitcher Max Scherzer last summer, only to watch the Dodgers present a sweeter pot. Maybe Preller overpaid so he didn’t get undercut. That’s to be determined, but what isn’t a mystery is what he’s delivered to title-starved San Diego. It’s nothing short of a summer miracle, which has the Padres dreaming about late October. The pure-swinging Soto is a world champion, a batting champion and the recent winner of the Home Run Derby. He has career offensive numbers that at this stage fall in line with Hall of Famers. He’s a generational player and he belongs to the Padres for at least through 2024, so let the good times roll. The Padres have their rock in manager Bob Melvin. They have their foundation in All-Star third baseman Manny Machado and the electric Fernardo Tatis Jr., with all indications he’ll return soon. The rotation is why the Padres have remained relevant. The bullpen woes have been addressed. Add this up and instead of duplicating last summer’s collapse, the Padres enter the dog days with some pep in their step. Preller, the guy a couple steps from Moonlight Beach, brought in stars with transactions that will long be remembered.

ill Russell died Sunday. He was 88. Passed peacefully at his home in Mercer Island, Washington, with his wife by his side. Born in Louisiana, his family moved to California where he attended Oakland’s McClymonds High School. Like Michael Jordan who was cut by his varsity team, Russell was cut by his junior high team. The rest, as they say, is history. A big one! Russell led the University of San Francisco to national championships in 1955 (28-1 record) and 1956 (29-0); in one stretch, the Dons won 55 straight games. Russell played for legendary coach Phil Woolpert, and one of his teammates was future Boston Celtic and Hall of Famer K.C. Jones. Russell was drafted by the St. Louis Hawks with the second pick of the 1956 NBA Draft but was traded to the Celtics. Red Auerbach, the coach of the Celtics, had his eye on No. 6 for a long time and knew what Bill Russell would mean to the franchise and the city of Boston. Russell became the champion of all champions, winning 11 NBA titles as a player for the Boston Celtics. Think about that ... 11 titles in a 13-year career. Nobody won more. Okay, maybe the New York Yankees. But no player ever achieved what Bill Russell did. He also became the first African American coach in any sport in North America; two of his titles were as player-coach. He was inducted twice in the Basketball Hall of Fame, as a player and as a coach. In 12 of Russell’s 13 seasons, the Celtics had the NBA’s top-ranked defense, leaving little doubt that he’s the best defender of all time. He and Wilt Chamberlain were intense rivals and competitors. They battled for East Coast supremacy for years and put their signatures on the legacy of the game. Every matchup was a media event. So, who was better … Russell or Chamberlain? Let’s take a look. — Russell and Chamberlin met 94 times headto-head in the regular season. The Celtics were 57-37 in those games. —They met 49 times in the playoffs, where Russell’s Celtics held a 29-20 edge. — Chamberlain outscored Russell in their reg-
BILL RUSSELL, shown in 1957, when he won the first of his 11 NBA titles with the Boston Celtics. Courtesy photo
ular season matchups, with his 29.2 points per game average almost doubling Russell’s 14.2. — Rings: No contest … Russell’s Celtics won 11 and Chamberlain (Warriors, Lakers) won two titles. — MVPs: Russell 5, Chamberlain 4. — Career points: Chamberlain wins big here — his 31,419 points in 15 seasons more than doubles Russell’s 14,522 in 13 seasons. — All-NBA teams: Russell 11, Chamberlain 10. Conclusion: Bill Russell was the champ of all champs. He led by performance and defense. He had great players around him. His passing and rim-protecting talents were in a class of their own. He made everyone around him better. Winning 11 NBA championships in 13 years is hard to argue with. Wilt Chamberlain, who passed away in 1999, was the most productive scorer of the era. He scored 50 or more points 118 times (Michael Jordan is 2nd, with 31) and was the only person in the NBA to score 100 points in a game. In the 1961-62 season, he averaged 50 points a game. Together, they were the most dominant and destructive centers to play the game. The game was totally different in the 1960s. But Russell was the G.O.A.T., paving the way for the growth and development of the National Basketball Association. And Russell is the best No. 6 in any sport. The MVP of the NBA Finals is awarded the Bill Russell trophy — named for the most complete player ever to don a NBA uniform. Rest easy, big fellow, you showed us what a true champion looks like and is all about. See you on the radio, 9 a.m. Saturdays on The Mightier 1090 AM ESPN Radio

SDSU probes rape claims against football players By City News Service
REGION — San Diego State University said Monday that it has launched its own investigation regarding the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl by members of the school's football team. The allegations center on a suspected rape at an off-campus house party on Oct. 16, 2021, allegedly perpetrated by five football players. In a statement issued campuswide, SDSU President Adela de la Torre said San Diego police initially requested that the university not conduct its own in-
vestigation or “do anything that could jeopardize or interfere with its criminal investigation.” SDSU also stated that it previously asked police for details so it could take action, but “SDPD formally requested that SDSU not intervene, as intervention could compromise their criminal investigation.” In the interim, the school said it has received anonymous information “from individuals who were not witnesses,” which it has shared with police and encouraged all those who made reports to contact SDPD.
SDSU says that on July 22, it received formal notification from the police department that it could move forward with its own inquiry. In a message to students, de la Torre said, “I want to assure you that we have and continue to take action. Our process, following California State University systemwide policy, has already begun and pertinent details and allegations are being examined. “As I have stated before: No one is above the law, and anyone found to have violated the law and university policy should
suffer the consequences.” Unlike a criminal investigation, SDSU’s Title IX investigation would examine whether university policy has been violated rather than whether criminal acts have been committed. If a student violated policy, the maximum possible punishment available is expulsion. In its statement, SDSU noted that Title IX investigations lack the warrant or subpoena power available to law enforcement investigations, and that universities cannot compel participation by either the victim or accused.
here’s a 5-foot tall ash tree growing in my backyard. Unchecked, it could reach up 80 feet. Three smaller ones threaten similar growth. My suspicion is the HOA will NOT be pleased! I suspect I accidentally planted one, which re-seeded itself. Or perhaps a friendly bird did me the favor. Regardless, I have to decide whether to cultivate, prune, transplant or remove. Contemplating my next move, I hear the words of RB-based certified reverse mortgage professional Rosemarie Litoff. Rosemarie regularly posits about how her marketing efforts are like planting seeds in a garden. “Some seeds take immediately, others take a while and some never sprout,” she says. I agree, because your business is also like a garden. Some seeds you can plant yourself, and with others you must rely on friends for help. All gardens must be nurtured, watered, fed and weeded. Reaching these goals requires ongoing efforts, including: • Planting seeds. Networking and speaking ensure you’re meeting new people, proving your expertise and inviting them to contact you when they need whatever you’re selling. Asking current customers for referrals brings unexpected business opportunities. • Feeding and watering. Critical to helping any garden flourish, in business we call it social media, newsletters, drip campaigns, publicity and promotion. • Weeding. Recognize
mr. marketing rob weinberg you can’t do business with everyone you meet. Budgets, required products/services and chemistry must be a good fit. Otherwise, it just distracts you from real areas of growth. Your garden can’t sustain every option, and neither can your business. Pick your area of specialization and stay with it. Try new areas of potential growth when they make sense. And have a blueprint to eliminate chances just anything will grow. Don’t randomly allow stray tomato plants to be introduced amidst your succulents. Finally, as Rosemarie observed, not all seeds grow immediately. But steady, regularly scheduled communication efforts help keep your name prominent. When those customers are ready to buy from someone like you, they’re more likely to remember your name if you’ve recognized the reality that out of sight is out of mind. By adopting a strategy of keeping a constant presence, you’ll plant seeds and care for those young shoots. Over time, this should give you lush sales, and one day provide you several customers who are bigger than you ever imagined. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

Herbie and the amazing Fletcher family The day I dyed my hair and went to Comic-Con water spot
was 14 years old when I first met Herbie Fletcher. He is now known primarily as a surfer, ripping through all stages of surfing’s evolution. He made his initial splash on longboards, first in the ’60s, then in the ’90s. Between those eras he excelled on rocket-fast shortboards where he co-invented and later perfected a move called the sideslip. He designed and marketed the first functional traction pads, took jet skiing from the bay into massive surf, became a surf filmmaker and surf film star and fathered two of the most influential surfers of our time — Christian and Nathan Fletcher. My first encounter with Herb was not through surfing but skateboarding at the Huntington Pier. Like me, he had freshly entered his teen years. Unlike me, he was only a few years from becoming famous as a member of both the Hobie Surf and Hobie Skateboard teams.

HERBIE FLETCHER, accomplished surfer, skateboarder and so much more. File photo via Facebook
He was among the first ever to skate an empty swimming pool and is widely credited as being the first person ever to roll over the pool light, an accomplishment that becomes that much more impressive when considering it was done before the invention of urethane skateboard wheels. As a surfer, Herbie first hit the big times in the mid ’60s when he co-starred in the MacGillivray Freeman surf epic, “Free and Easy.” Over the years I maintained a friendship with Herbie — interviewing him on the beach at the surf contests I commentated and for various surfing magazines. I worked for Herbie briefly by doing voice-overs in some of his “Wave Warrior” movies. ors Court while the Cougars also earned the NABC Team Academic Excellence Award.
I never knew Herb’s wife, Dibi, as well as I did Herbie, but I have known her at least as long. Surprisingly, Dibi was never a surfer — she left that to her husband, her kids and her legendary sister, Joyce (Hoffman), who ruled women’s surfing in the early ’60s. Dibi was independent, forging her own path that would eventually lead to her becoming a mother, a film producer, a writer, an artist and something of a surf activist, for lack of a better word. Having been married since the ’70s, she has offered me some good tips on keeping the knot tightly tied. One tip I continue to take to bed, “Don’t argue when you’re tired, go to your room,” has made my

marriage better than it otherwise would be. Dibi and Herbie’s first child, Christian, expresses all the organic wildness and creativity of his parents and is widely considered to be among the best aerial surfers of all time. The younger of the Fletcher kids, Nathan, has taken big-wave surfing to previously unimaginable heights, getting axed in Tahiti in a way that made audiences fearful that he might never surface, and being the first surfer ever to launch into a wave from a helicopter. The surfboard in the attached photo illustrates a collaboration between Herbie Fletcher and famed artist Julian Schnabel. But art for the Fletcher family is where you find it — on a surfboard or a skateboard, in front of or behind a camera, building and designing surfboards, screening T-shirts, painting and collecting museum-worthy surfboards, raising ground-breaking kids and grandkids, living in the moment, driving down a wave made of saltwater or concrete. *** Please check out my latest passion project, the Godngangsters YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/GodNGangsters cos.

saw Bart Simpson. I hung out briefly with Boba Fett and Darth Vader, a zombie, some large machine-like creature, some very buff centurions, and I even rubbed elbows with Seth Green. If you don’t know who Seth Green is, well, then you are seriously lacking in coolness. Even I, who has been known to score pretty low on the cool meter, remembered him as the son of “Austin Powers’” Dr. Evil, who got told to “Zip it!” However, I did lose points because I didn’t know exactly why Green was signing autographs on the Comic-Con exhibit floor. It involves adult cartoons too strange even for me. If you need details, just ask someone between 18 and 25. Meanwhile, it turns out I have been a Comic-Con fan for years, but just didn’t realize it. The signs were all there. Basically I am a huge fan of imagination and whimsy …. and Comic-Con is pretty much Whimsy Central. I have been known to find any excuse to wear a costume and am quite comfortable looking a little ridiculous. I love science fiction and especially science fiction movies. I have been a “Star Trek” fan since the first season, a “Star Wars” fan as well. The clincher is that I was as big a fan of my children’s cartoon shows as they were, from “Rescue Rangers” to “Invader Zim” to “Angry Beavers.”
When my godson gave me the heads-up to buy my ticket months ago, I decided to go for it, before a) I was really too old to walk from one end of the Convention Center to the other and/or b) the rumors come true and the iconic event leaves San Diego for a more spacious spot in Orange County or L.A. If I am required to drive past that Orange County border to get to something, even Comic-Con loses its attraction. It was a day full of youthful exuberance and a visual feast. (I try to expose myself to youthful exuberance as often as possible in hopes of absorbing some subcutaneously.) I’m not sure what tickled me the most. It might have been the street signs outside the Convention Center written in Klingon. It could have been seeing trailers in serious surround sound. Or maybe it was the two or three adorable attendees who actually complimented my green hair. Well, sure. You can just go to Comic-Con looking normal, but it’s an opportunity lost. I should have gone as Medusa, who was featured this year, looking very like me before my shower. But even with my minimal effort, seriously costumed people chatted and joked easily with me. If you are willing to set aside a workday, maybe paint your hair green, and stand in endless lines, you have, apparently, earned their respect. I loved that the exhibits range from established stars to upcoming creative minds trying to break into the business. And you never really know — either one might be standing right next to you.

Pet of the Week Tuna is pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 9-year-old, 12-pound, male, domestic shorthair cat with a brown tabby coat. His owners’ schedules changed, and they returned Tuna after 7½ years. Tuna lived in a home with two adults and another male cat. He got daily play sessions and he enjoyed playing with toy mice, string, balls and his cat friend. His family says Tuna is gentle, calm, friendly, curious, clingy, and outgoing. The $75 adoption fee includes medical exam, spay, up-to-date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if her new home is in the jurisdiction of San
Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services. For information about adoption or to become a virtual foster, stop by Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza St., Encinitas, call (760) 753-6413, or visit SDpets. org.

Candidates start bids in Del Mar, Solana Beach, San Marcos By Laura Place
REGION — The local election season has officially begun in Solana Beach and Del Mar, and several potential candidates have already pulled papers since the election filing period opened on July 18. Candidates for city and school board races have until Aug. 12 to file to run in the November 8 general election, either with the city clerk for city council races or with the San Diego County Registrar of Voters in the case of school districts. If the incumbent for a seat has not filed by Aug. 12, the filing deadline will be extended by another five days to Aug. 17.
The seats held by City Councilmember Terry Gaasterland and Mayor Dwight Worden in the city of Del Mar are up for election. Gaasterland and Worden have pulled papers, along with parent Chelsea Ziskin and Stephen Quirk, a business owner and the twin brother of current Del Mar Councilmember Dan Quirk. Local voters will also be asked to consider candidates for the San Dieguito Union High School and Del Mar Union School districts. Up for election in Del Mar Union are the seats of trustees Katherine Fitzpatrick, Scott Wooden and Doug Rafner. Along with Rafner, Fitzpatrick and Wooden, community members William A. Porter III, Danielle Roybal, Maniza Sheikhani and Cinda Peck have pulled papers. Porter and Peck are both retired teachers, and Roybal and Sheikhani are district parents who have

it; nobody can get involved in any way,” Flanagan said. “With monarchs, people can get involved; people can create habitats in their garden. I don’t know how much a listing would affect that … or what would it mean if people weren’t able to get involved in monarch conservation.” The extreme population loss of the monarch butterfly across the continent can be attributed to several stressors, including loss of habitat, changing climate and the use of insecticides. There’s been a 40% decline in all insect species worldwide – which seriously impacts the environment. To help maintain butterfly habitats, residents can plan native nectar plants. Be sure to avoid planting tropical milkweed and plant coyote bush instead. Experts also say it’s crucial to pay attention to the planting cycle and where to plant to best aid the monarch’s life cycle.
Harless was also elected to her first term in 2018 and serves as Deputy Mayor. In the Solana Beach School District, the seats of trustees Vicki King, Debra Schade and Gaylin Allbaugh will be up for election. All three incumbents have pulled papers.

spoken out repeatedly about the need for change in the district’s special education program. Fitzpatrick will be running for her second fouryear term on the school board after being elected in 2018, while Wooden is seeking his fourth term on the board. Rafner has served three terms as a trustee. The three seats for election in the San Dieguito Union High School District include the Area 5 seat held by Julie Bronstein, the Area 1 seat held by Maureen “Mo” Muir, and the Area 3 seat left vacant by the April resignation of Melisse Mossy. Bronstein has pulled papers for the Area 5 race along with district parent Phan Anderson, and Muir has filed to defend her Area 1 seat against former Encinitas Union School District trustee Rimga Viskanta. Resident Daniel Hale and former teacher Jane Lea Smith have pulled papers for Area 3 as of Friday. Muir has served two four-year terms on the Encinitas butterfly farm disputes group’s ‘endangered’ label for monarch “I think awareness is at an all-time high, and we need to keep it there,” Flanagan said.
board and is seeking her third. Bronstein was elected to the board via special election in 2021.
Two Solana Beach City Council seats are up for election this November, including District 2, currently represented by Kristi Becker and District 4, held by Kelly Harless. Becker, elected to her first term in 2018, has pulled papers for District 2 along with engineer Kristin Brinner. Nonprofit professional and former Solana Beach School District trustee Jill MacDonald is the only person to pull papers for the District 4 seat as of Friday. Consultant and marketing professional Shawn McClondon has also announced his intention to run for City Council but has not pulled papers as of Friday.
There are three seats up for election on the San Marcos City Council, two seats on the San Marcos Unified School District board and three seats on the Palomar College Board of Trustees. The seats of Mayor Rebecca Jones, District 1 City Councilmember Maria Nuñez and District 2 City Councilmember Randy Walton are up for election in November. Jones, who has served on the council since 2007 and as mayor since 2018, will face two challengers in this year’s mayoral race — Walton, who has served on the council since 2018, and 24-year-old resident Jake James Henry. The mayor is an at-large position while the City Council seats are elected by members of the district they represent. With no incumbent running for Walton’s District 2 seat, three individuals have stepped up and pulled papers for the position as of last Friday. These include Vallecitos Water District representative Mike Sannela, Jay Petrek, who was appointed to a two-year term to fill a vacant seat on the City Council in 2018, and

The Purple Heart is the oldest military decoration still in present use and was initially created by George Washington in 1782 when it was named the “Badge of Military Merit.” Purple Heart Day is observed on August 7 each year and is a time for Americans to pause to remember and honor the brave men and women who were either wounded on the battlefield or paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives. Purple Heart recipients can join the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) which was formed in 1932. It is composed exclusively of men and women who have received the Purple Heart and is the only veterans service organization with only “combat” veterans as members. It’s estimated that more than a million Purple Hearts have been awarded and there are about 45,000 Military Order of the Purple Heart members today. Please join us in honoring these men and women today and every day for their dedication & sacrifices in preserving and protecting the freedoms we enjoy in our great nation.

Escondido sales tax hike makes ballot Council settles on ¾-cent measure for November By Samantha Nelson
ESCONDIDO — After years of discussion, voters will see a new ¾-cent sales tax measure on the November ballot. In late July, the City Council approved a ¾-cent sales tax ballot measure with the goal of using additional funds to maintain and improve public safety services throughout the city. It was the second attempt to get a tax measure on the ballot after a 2020 attempt failed. Staff had originally proposed a one-cent tax measure, which tested well
among more than 1,000 voters in a survey conducted this year. Approximately 63% of respondents indicated they would favor a one-cent sales tax increase that would remain in effect until ended by voters. Through a compromise, the City Council passed by a 4-1 vote the ¾-cent sales tax measure to end in 15 years. To get the measure on the ballot, the council needed at least four votes. Councilmember Joe Garcia voted against the ballot measure. “After reviewing the staff report and all the materials with it, at this time I don't feel there are enough protections of the taxpayers here in Escondido to move forward with this,” Garcia said. City officials have de-
bated a sales tax increase for some time in response to its budget woes. The city’s state-required public employee unfunded pension liability fund obligates Escondido to pay between $15 and $22 million annually until 2044. A ¾-cent sales tax increase would raise Escondido’s current sales tax rate of 7.75% to 8.5% and would generate approximately $21 million annually. At least 50% of that would be used to support police and fire; to maintain infrastructure, parks and buildings; and to address homelessness. The council also voted to add language to the ballot measure that would cite reducing the city’s pension obligations with the funds as well. Garcia, Morasco
and Deputy Mayor Tina Inscoe felt that adding the language would be more transparent to voters. Adding the language went against recommendations from both staff and True North Research, a third-party consultant that conducted the sales tax survey, which indicated the move would be risky because the language was untested. Voters in the survey also indicated that reducing pension costs with the funds was on the lower end of their priorities. Instead, residents identified wanting additional public safety efforts, infrastructure improvements and actions addressing homelessness to improve Escondido’s quality of life. Mayor Paul McNamara and Councilmember Consuelo Martinez were both opposed to adding the language; however, they voted in favor to get four votes. “I don’t think it’s a good idea, because it’s untested,” Martinez said. McNamara questioned how the tax would work to reduce pension obligations when the city is already required to pay it. “We’re not really reducing the pension debt,” the mayor said. “It’s a bill — something we have to pay.” Meanwhile, without additional revenue, the city could be forced to make cuts to police, fire, road maintenance, homeless encampment cleanups and other service areas, cuts that McNamara said would impact the city’s quality of life.

Oceanside police arrest hit-and-run death suspect By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — Police have arrested a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run that killed a grandmother walking in her neighborhood earlier this summer. Sean Richter, 34, of Oceanside, surrendered himself to police in late July nearly two months after he allegedly hit and killed 68-year-old Cecilia Shu during one of her routine morning walks near Benet Road and Leepish Drive on June 5. According to earlier police reports, the driver that struck Shu jumped the curb and drove onto the sidewalk for several feet before hitting the grandmother from behind. The driver then flipped a u-turn and fled the scene where Shu died. According to family, Shu was excited to meet her then 10-day-old grandson before she was killed. Traffic Collision Investigator Clint Bussey spent the following weeks canvassing the neighborhood looking for the vehicle be-
lieved to have hit Shu. Witnesses reported seeing a newer-model black Honda HR-V. Several residents had reported seeing the vehicle frequently speeding through the neighborhood. Investigators identified and located the vehicle unoccupied on July 7 in Lakeside, according to police spokesperson Jennifer Atenza. Police were given a tip regarding the car’s whereabouts. Over the following weeks, authorities worked with Richter’s attorneys to negotiate a peaceful surrender, which ultimately happened on July 26. Richter was taken into custody by Oceanside police on suspicion of felony gross vehicle manslaughter and hit-and-run with death. Atenza praised Bussey’s tenacity in diligently following the case as well as both the media and public for circulating the information that helped lead to Richter’s arrest. “It was absolutely a joint effort,” she said.

Studies link poverty to dementia By City News Service
REGION — Several studies released this week at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in San Diego revealed that living in a disadvantaged neighborhood and receiving low wages are associated with a higher dementia risk. According to the findings at AAIC 2022, people who experience personal and neighborhood conditions such as low income, high unemployment, low car/home ownership rates and household overcrowding were significantly more likely to develop dementia compared to individuals of better socioeconomic status, even those at high genetic risk. Lower-quality neighborhood resources and difficulty paying for basic needs were associated with lower scores on cognitive tests among Black and Latino individuals, according to the research. Higher parental socioeconomic status was associated with slower cognitive decline in older age. Compared with workers earning higher wages, sustained low-wage earners experienced significantly faster memory decline in older age. “It’s vital we continue to study social determinants of health related to cognition, including socioeconomic status, so we can implement public health policies and create community environments that can improve the health

and well-being of all,” Matthew Baumgart, vice president of health policy at the Alzheimer’s Association, said in a statement. Matthias Klee, a doctoral student in psychology at the University of Luxembourg, collaborated with researchers from universities of Exeter and Oxford to examine data from 196,368 participants’ records in the UK Biobank, whose genetic risk for developing dementia was assessed through risk scores. With that sample, the
researchers investigated the contribution of individual socioeconomic deprivation — such as low income — and area-level socioeconomic deprivation — such as employment rates and car/home ownership — to the risk of developing dementia, and compared it with genetic risk for dementia. Both individual and area-level deprivation contributed to the risk of dementia, researchers found. For participants with moderate or high genetic risk, greater area-level deprivation was associated with even higher risk for developing dementia, after adjusting for individual-level socioeconomic conditions. “Our findings point to the importance of the conditions in which people live, work and age for their risk of developing dementia, particularly those who are already genetically more vulnerable,” Klee said. “Both individual health behaviors and

non-influenceable living conditions are relevant to explain risk of dementia, particularly for individuals with increased genetic vulnerability.” Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health researcher Katrina Kezios categorized study participants’ history of low wages into those who never earned low wages, who intermittently earned low wages or who always earned low wages, and then examined the relationship with memory decline over 12 years. The team found that, compared with workers never earning low wages, sustained low-wage earners experienced significantly faster memory decline in older age. They experienced around one excess year of cognitive aging per 10year period. “Our findings suggest that social policies that enhance the financial well-being of low-wage workers, including increasing the minimum wage, may be especially beneficial for cognitive health,” Kezios said.

HERB OF THE MONTH ROSEMARY - Salvia rosmarinus
a thousand years of healing
he latin name salvia rosmarinus means Rose of the Sea because the plant thrives near ocean gardens. Originating in the mediterranean countries, rosemary has been used and documented by the ancient Greeks and Romans in the Materia Medica, the go to text for healing herbs used for thousands of years. In folklore, rosemary signifies remembrance, fidelity and true love. Sprigs of fresh rosemary were sent
with loved ones who passed on as well as used in garlands for a bride at her wedding. Ancient scholars wore wreaths of rosemary around their heads to stimulate memory and deep thought. Although we know it mostly as a seasoning for poultry, potatoes and certain liqueurs, rosemary is also a potent oil to be used in diffusers or rubbed into the skin for pain. Never consume essential oils of any kind. Tinctures and teas should not be consumed without consulting a practitioner first. Medicinally, rosemary oil has been used for hair growth in alopecia and male pattern baldness as it stimulates the follicles to begin new growth of hair. Rosemary oil is an anti

For this reason it is currently being researched for improved brain function in Alzheimers and other dementia patients. Rosemary oil can be made at home by cutting a pint of fresh sprigs then covering with olive oil then place in a cool dry place for 3 to 4 weeks. You can also buy it online for your diffuser, or as a rub. There are hundreds of recipes if you decide to make your own. The plant is a shrub that's an easy keeper, especially in warmer climates.

Study: Health care facilities in hard-hit areas less likely to give vaccines By City News Service
REGION — Research published July 28 by a team of researchers led by UC San Diego scientists found that health-care facilities in underrepresented, rural and hard-hit communities were less likely to administer COVID-19 vaccines during their initial rollout, partially due to not receiving enough doses to meet demand. In a study published Thursday in PLOS Medicine, Inmaculada Hernandez, associate professor of clinical pharmacy at Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at UCSD, quantified the disparities in the early distribution of COVID-19 vaccines to health care facilities across the country. “Both the national policy and public opinion agreed that vaccine distribution should prioritize disadvantaged communities and those hit hardest by COVID-19, but the data shows that is not what happened,'' Hernandez said. According to the researchers, previous studies of vaccine accessibility had not distinguished whether lower access in underserved neighborhoods was a product of the lower concentration of health care facilities in these areas or of inequities in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines to each health care facility. To answer that question, Hernandez and col-

leagues at UCSD, University of Florida and University of Pittsburgh tested whether the likelihood of an eligible health care facility administering COVID-19 vaccines varied based on the racial/ ethnic composition of counties and how rural or urban the county is. The team focused on the initial phase of vaccine rollout, using data from May 2021 when states were officially required to make vaccines available to the public. At that time, 61% of eligible health care facilities and 76% of eligible pharmacies across the U.S. provided COVID-19 vaccinations. When the researchers began comparing these rates with the socioeconomic features of the county each facility was located in, several patterns emerged.

claim further research is necessary to identify the reasons why vaccines were not equitably distributed to all health care facilities and how the involvement of these facilities evolved across subsequent phases of vaccine distribution. “To achieve health equity in future public health programs, including the distribution of booster shots, it is crucial that public health authorities review these early COVID-19 distribution plans to understand how and why this happened,'' said senior author Dr. Jingchuan (Serena) Guo, assistant professor at University of Florida.

The researchers also found facilities in rural counties and in counties hardest hit by COVID-19 were also associated with decreased odds of serving as a COVID-19 vaccine administration location.

Alzheimer’s Association discusses “10 Warning Signs” at Silvergate San Marcos SAN MARCOS, CA – August 5, 2022 – More than 30 attentive seniors and family members turned out for an informative presentation by the Alzheimer’s Association of San Diego to discuss the “10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease” on Tuesday, June 28th at Silvergate San Marcos -- the area’s premier senior living community. “Caregiving for a loved one who is living with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, or memory loss at home is often overwhelming and exhausting for family members,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “We partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to share resources with seniors and their families in order to help them assess a loved one’s cognitive status and navigate the path to better care, which is all anyone wants for their mom or dad.” Speaker Rebecca Turman, Program and Education Specialist for the San Diego Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, gave attendees a comprehensive overview of the top 10 warning signs to watch for as well as an update on the latest research under development for families concerned about a loved who may be experiencing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, key signs to look for include: 1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life 2. Challenges in planning or solving problems 3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks 4. Confusion with time or place 5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships 6. New problems with words in speaking or writing 7. Misplacing items and losing the ability to retrace steps
8. Decrease or poor judgment 9. Withdrawal from work or social activities 10. Changes in mood and personality Turman continued to say that although the scientific community is no closer to a cure, early detection is now possible and depends largely on seniors being assessed by a physician at the onset of one or more of these key warning signs. Families are encouraged to note what they’re seeing, become educated and seek guidance from trusted sources like the Alzheimer’s Association. “I came to this event today to learn more about this troubling disease because I have a dear friend who is starting to experience memory loss issues that have me concerned,” said Joyce Jablonowski, a local senior who received Silvergate’s invitation to hear about what constitutes symptoms versus what can be considered normal challenges with aging. “I wanted to know what to look for so hearing about the warning signs in Silvergate’s presentation today and then touring a professional memory care environment was really helpful. I now know how to find the support she needs.” Guests also heard from David Nelson, Marketing Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “Although we all continue to hope for a cure to Alzheimer’s in our lifetime, until that day, what we do know is that there is a lot seniors can do now to help delay the onset of dementia-like symptoms. Staying active, developing new friendships, continual learning, and proper nutrition all help the brain stay healthy. Independent senior living communities like Silvergate San Marcos specialize in just that.” After the presentation, guests were able to tour Silvergate’s newly remodeled Memory Care Suites, a separate building on the property specifically designed for
seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and memory loss. Participants were introduced to Silvergate’s unique concept of “neighborhood” design which provides a more personalized, home-like environment where residents enjoy the highest level of comfort, engagement, and supervision without the possibility of wandering in corridors or long hallways. About Silvergate San Marcos With one of the highest caregiver-to-resident ratios in the senior living industry, Silvergate San Marcos’ experienced memory care team provides high-touch care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With more eyes on fewer residents, families can rest assured that the greatest standard of care and the highest level of supervision will ensure the safety and security of a loved one residing at the community’s Memory Care Suites. For those actively looking for a proven memory care solution for their loved one, families can call David Nelson, Marketing Director for Silvergate San Marcos, at 760-744-4484 for more information about the community’s Memory Care Suites or visit www.SilvergateRR.com/SM.

In the moment: Shadow Ridge Spirits cheers! north county
or this week’s In the Moment interview, I spoke with Sean Hallman of Shadow Ridge Spirits Company in Oceanside. Cheers!: Hi, Sean. Thanks for getting me up to speed with what’s going on at Shadow Ridge Spirits Co. We’re in the heart of our third COVID summer. What’s the current status of the distillery, and how has this summer been different from 2020 or 2021? Sean: We are fully open for tours and tastings. We’re also in full production almost every week. This summer, we’re focusing on tours and tastings. Summer of 2020 and 2021, we were able to ship Direct-to-Customer, but the State of California allowed the temporary COVID law to expire in March of this year. We always love doing tours are tastings. We are available by appointment only on evenings and weekends. Cheers!: You are a Navy veteran and still work with the military in another part of your life. How has your military experience influenced you as an entrepreneur and in running the business? Sean: In the military, you are always part of a team. I was a Navy surface warfare officer, and you quickly realize you must rely on and trust everyone that you work for, work with, and [who] works for you. If you try to do everything yourself, you will fail. I took the same approach when starting my business. I made a list of what I could do and what I couldn’t do. I hired a solid graphic designer and developed a strong network of confidants. The great thing about distilling in San Diego is the incredible network of distillers and brewers. Their lessons learned have

become my standard operating procedures (SOPs). Cheers!: What inspired you to take on the challenge of starting a distillery in the first place? Sean: I was a homebrewer for many years and completed the UCSD Professional Brewing Program. While in the program, I had the opportunity to steward at the first San Diego Fair Distilled Spirits Competition started by Yuseff Cherney (Ballast Point/Cutwater). I met quite a few local distillers and was able to pick their brains. A couple of years later, Sultan wanted to go down this road, and I agreed. Unfortunately, he had to back out, and my wife stepped in as my busi-
ness partner. This is truly a passion project. Cheers!: What is it about working with small batches that appeals to you,
and is there anything in R&D right now? Sean: One great thing I love about small batch is the ability to experiment with different grains. We can leverage the San Diego Brewing infrastructure, access to multiple grain warehouses and yeast labs. Small batch gives us the freedom to change our mash bill anytime we like for limited release. For example, our bourbon has maintained 53% corn by law, but the other 47% of grain has changed. I love working with barley, especially German malts. I change the percentage and types of barley, rye, and wheat in my bourbon and rye whiskey. I currently have two different single malts, a peated version and un-peated [version] with roasted malts. I just finished distilling a new single malt recipe. I love trying out different raw sugars in my rum. I believe if we weren’t small batch, I wouldn’t have the latitude with my recipes. I believe that customers looking for craft spirits like the little different nuances from batch to batch. We have some cool stuff going on at the distillery. I have a 100% blue weber agave spirit (we can’t call it tequila). We did a blanco and ex-bourbon, barrel-aged agave spirit. I just barreled a blue corn bourbon that we’re super excited about. We also have our 1893 Navy Strength Rum that changes every batch. I have TURN TO CHEERS! ON 22

M arketplace News Legal alternatives for injured bicycle riders
Marketplace News is paid sponsored content
By Russell Kohn
Kohn Law Office Under California law, a bicycle is not considered a vehicle but is still governed by many of the same traffic laws. Bicycle riders are considered to have the same rights as drivers to use of the streets, but the specifics regarding bicycle rights and responsibilities can be confusing. By statute, “Every person riding a bicycle upon a highway has all the rights and is subject to all the provisions applicable to the driver of a vehicle by this division ....” (See California Vehicle Code Section 21200). Those who choose to avoid main thoroughfares by taking to trails and bikeways may be at even greater risk, however, because no city, county or state government entity in California bears any legal responsibility for maintaining safe riding conditions on a Class I or Class II bikeway. This odd result stems from court rulings that define the word “trail” to include paved bike paths. In the case of Prokop v. City of Los Angeles (2007) 150 Cal.App.4th 1332, David Prokop pursued litigation against the City of Los Angeles when a flawed design for a bike trail caused him to collide with a chain link fence, resulting in a severe laceration to his forehead, loss of consciousness, and neck pain. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor
PRESERVING BICYCLISTS’ rights to share the roadways and preventing local authorities from limiting such rights are most important. Courtesy photo
of the City, holding that a class I bikeway, as defined in Streets and Highways Code section 890.4, is a “trail” under section 831.4, subdivision (b). Because of this absolute governmental immunity, our law office was unable to help a person in a similar case who was seriously injured by the poor design and maintenance of a paved bike path in Oceanside, California. Our office has drafted legislation that would remedy this unfairness.
Bike lanes in streets, however, are governed by different laws than bike paths. The Kohn Law Office won an $80,000 recovery for a woman who had sustained facial wounds and tooth fractures when she encountered a raised utility manhole in the bike lane of a busy street in Carlsbad, California, which caused her to lose control and be thrown off her bicycle. In another case, the Kohn Law Office won a $125,000 recovery for a
woman who suffered a fractured elbow when she rode her bicycle over an unmarked speed bump on a road in a mobile home park in Oceanside, California, which caused her to lose control and be thrown off her bicycle. When operating a bicycle on a roadway, one of the most controversial issues how far to the right of a roadway a bicycle rider is obligated to ride. In roadways without bike lanes, all slower traffic, including bicycles, must keep farther to the right (See California Vehicle Code Section 22100). Of course, the law also now requires vehicles to keep at least 3 feet away from a bicycle rider on the roadway. The purpose of traffic law is to promote safe and efficient traffic flow. What is most important to society is preserving bicyclists’ rights to share the roadways, and preventing local authorities from limiting such rights. If you or a loved one has suffered injury then call us now for a free consultation. There is no fee if we don’t win! Attorneys Russell S. Kohn and Suzanne Skolnick have offices in Carlsbad and Oceanside, where they limit their practice to personal injury law.

some leftover 100% that we use for gin. I am making another batch of gin and may use some for absinthe. We just released both Cask Strength Hallman Single Barrel Bourbon and Cask Strength Hallman Single Barrel Rye. The Agave Spirit and Cask Strength Whiskey are currently only available for sale through the tasting room. Cheers!: If you were to suggest a drink or a make cocktail for someone who had never tried any of your spirits? What would it be and why? Sean: I really don’t make a lot of cocktails, but our bourbon is great for a traditional Bourbon Smash. This past April, we were given an incredible opportunity to conduct a Cocktail Seminar at the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival. We taught people how to make our bourbon smash with fresh muddled lemon, fresh mint, and simple syrup. Using muddle lemon releases the oil in the rind as opposed to just using the juice. The mint adds a freshness that is brightened by the lemon, and the simple syrup adds just a little sweetness. It’s almost like a minty Whiskey Sour or citrusy Mint Julep. We received great feedback from the seminar participants. Our bourbon at 90 proof is robust enough to shine through the other ingredients and be the star of the cocktail. Cheers!: You run the company with your wife, Lisa Ireland. How have you navigated working together, and are you taking the work home together? Sean: It’s been great. My wife LOVES whiskey, especially bourbon and scotch, if it’s not too peaty. We bounce ideas off each other and spend a lot of quality time together at the distillery. At home, we do themed whiskey tastings at home to expand our palate. One night it might be high wheat bourbons, another night it might be Speyside Scotch, etc. We talk about why we like a whiskey or maybe why a whiskey isn’t for us. So, I guess we do take our work home. The good
thing is we went into this to have fun, and we’re still having fun. Cheers!: What did we miss? Anything else you want readers to know about Shadow Ridge right now? Sean: Shadow Ridge Spirits is a private label of Oceanside Distillers. Our products and Oceanside Distillers Steinmetz Spirits are available in our tasting room. When you come to visit, your tour and tasting are conducted by the distillers. Either owner, Dieter Steinmetz, or I will lead the tour and tasting, but usually, it’s both of us. We are very proud of the fact that we both produce 100% grain-to-glass spirits with all in-house fermentation. There are a lot of tours and tastings conducted by the distillers. Cheers!: What is the best way for SoCal residents to try or buy your spirits? Sean: We would love to have SoCal residents come visit us in our facility for a tour and tasting. We are also available in all Keg N Bottle locations. Our spirits are also available through the Keg N Bottle online store. We are also in the onboarding process with the San Diego area Total Wine and Spirits locations. Hopefully, we will be available at their San Diego area stores by the end of summer or early fall. Shadow Ridge Spirits Company and Oceanside Distillers are located at 3044 Industry St #107 in Oceanside. Tastings and tours are by appointment only. Call 858-633-7146 to book your tour. Order Shadow Ridge whiskey, rum, or gin online from barbank.com here. Be sure to follow and share your drinking adventures with Cheers! North County on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

ebecca Parker is a gem. She is a lone star collector who sits by herself amid a rough and tumble collection of amazing garden objects and plant material on State Street in Carlsbad. And if you are in need of any unusual pot, mirror, statuary, rare glass jars or even birdcages, you will find it here. But, sadly for all of her devoted followers, her eclectic shop is closing at the end of August. Now is the time to snatch up those treasures before they are gone forever. As the sole owner of Rebecca’s Garden, she has learned over her decades of collecting found objects that even the strangest objects make good bedfellows. “Recently, I took a large glass water jar with a spigot, added some succulents, green moss and a clay bird,” she said. “No one knew the succulents were fake, but it looked adorable. “But seriously, most of my designs are done with real plants and found objects.

SCOTT CALHOUN, DESIGN MASTER OF TUCSON The trick, it seems, to low-cost decorative gardening is to use a small amount of plant material, such as succulents, cacti, perennial cuttings or vegetables, which can be set off by a beautiful piece of pottery or found object. According to Tucson, Arizona-based Scott Calhoun in his 2009 book, “Hot Pots,” when planting single specimen plants such as a hibiscus, plumeria or euphorbia, it is important to “remember that the plant is the number-one element.

the water? The answer is a little blue penguin, and 15 of these nuthin’-but-cute birds are settled into their new home at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Visitors can watch the little blues as they torpedo through the clear water, hop and waddle onto the rocky “shore,” a duplicate of their native habitats in southern Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. The Beyster Family Little Blue Penguins, named after the exhibit’s largest donors, is a multimillion-dollar, 2,900-squarefoot habitat that features an 18,000-gallon pool, multiple cozy burrows, a sandy beach and plants native to their home habitats. The enclosure is designed so visitors of all sizes, ages and abilities can see the 2- to 3-pound penguins above and below the water line.The names and personalities of each pen-

Meet Katie of “overall quiet demeanor (who is) a very pleasant bird… (unless) males start getting into a squabble around her.” Then she “fights back ferociously.” Katie also is likely to “eat an impressive amount of capelin (a small fish), mind her own busi-
ness and pick the nicest nest.” Nero, on the other hand, is most likely to “push the females out of the way,” while Magic, another male, has a fun personality, loves on anyone who gives him attention, and is likely to be “the first to investigate something new.” Benefactors named Katie, Nero, Magic and three other penguins. One pen-
guin – Azulito (Spanish for “little blue”) – was named in an online contest and won the prize for the most easy-going penguin who gets along with everyone. Penguins are a fairly common site in zoos, but only a few exhibit little blue penguins, including the Dallas World Aquarium, Bronx Zoo, Adventure Aquarium, Louisville Zoo and Cincinnati Zoo.

CITY OF ENCINITAS DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT LEGAL NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING BY THE CITY COUNCIL PLACE OF MEETING: Council Chambers, Civic Center 505 S. Vulcan Avenue Encinitas, CA 92024 IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT/SECTION 504 REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973 AND TITLE VI, THIS AGENCY IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PUBLIC ENTITY AND DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE ON THE BASIS OF RACE, COLOR, ETHNIC ORIGIN, NATIONAL ORIGIN, SEX, RELIGION, VETERANS STATUS OR PHYSICAL OR MENTAL DISABILITY IN EMPLOYMENT OR THE PROVISION OF SERVICE. IF YOU REQUIRE SPECIAL ASSISTANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS MEETING, PLEASE CONTACT THE CITY CLERK AT (760) 633-2601 AT LEAST 72 HOURS PRIOR TO THE MEETING. It is hereby given that the City Council will conduct a Public Hearing on Wednesday, the 24th day of August 2022, at 6:00 p.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, to discuss the following item of the City of Encinitas: CASE NUMBER: PLCY-004770-2021 (ZA/LCPA – Accessory Dwelling Units, California Coastal Commission Modifications); APPLICANT: City of Encinitas; LOCATION: City-wide; PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Public hearing to consider the introduction of City Council Ordinance No. 2022-11 to adopt the modification suggested by the California Coastal Commission to City Council Ordinance No. 202010 and Ordinance 2022-03, amending Section 30.48.040 (Accessory Use Regulations) and Section 30.76.120 (Remodeling or Reconstruction of Residential Buildings with Structural/Use Nonconformity) of Title 30 of the Zoning Code and Local Coastal Program (LCP) to modify the regulations and requirements for accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and junior accessory dwelling units (JADUs) (with the exception of the provisions regarding replacement parking). Modification addresses when a coastal development permit is required for the construction of a new ADU/JADU. ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: It has been determined that the proposed Ordinance is statutorily exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 21080.17 of the Public Resources Code, which provides that CEQA does not apply to the adoption of an ordinance to implement the provisions of Section 65852.2 of the Government Code regarding accessory dwelling units. In addition, the amendments regarding junior accessory dwelling units are also exempt from environmental review pursuant to General Rule, Section 15061(b)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines since it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the Ordinance may have a significant effect on the environment. STAFF CONTACT: Evan Jedynak, Associate Planner: 760-633-2686 or ejedynak@encinitasca. gov. This project constitutes an amendment to the Local Coastal Program (LCP). If the City approves the amendment, the proposed LCP amendment must be submitted to the California Coastal Commission for review and adoption. The LCP amendment will not become effective until after adoption by the California Coastal Commission. The draft ordinance is available for review at the City of Encinitas Development Services Department: Encinitas Civic Center, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024 during normal business hours, once open to the public and online at https://encinitasca. gov/I-Want-To/Public-Notices/Development-Services-Public-Notices. Under California Government Code Section 65009, if you challenge the nature of the proposed action in court, you may be limited to raising only the issues you or someone else raised regarding the matter described in this notice or written correspondence delivered to the City at or before the time and date of the determination. For further information, or to review the application prior to the hearing, please contact staff or contact the Development Services Department, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024 at (760) 633-2710 or by email at email@example.com. 08/05/2022 CN 26816

1. AD SLOGANS: Which product’s advertising slogan is “Look, Ma, no cavities!”?
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor socializing with family and friends, but an irksome workplace situation could intrude. No use grumbling, Lamb. Just do it, and then get back to the fun times. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) There’s still time for you Ferdinands and Fernandas to relax and sniff the roses. But a major work project looms and will soon demand much of your attention through the next week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your enthusiasm persuades even the toughest doubters to listen to what you’re proposing. But don’t push too hard, or you’ll push them away. Moderate for best results. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels are rising, and you feel like you can handle anything that the job requires. While that’s great, don’t isolate yourself. Keep your door open to your workplace colleagues for sound advice. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A workplace change could lead to that promotion you’ve been hoping for. But you’ll have to face some tough competition before the Lion can claim his or her share of the goodies. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your rigidity regarding a difficult workplace situation could be the reason your colleagues aren’t rushing to your assistance. Try being more flexible in your demands.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) That uneasy mood could be your Libran inner voice reminding you that while it’s great to be with your new friends, you need to take care not to ignore your old ones. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A sudden spate of criticism could shake the Scorpion’s usually high sense of self-confidence. Best advice: You made a decision you believed in — now defend it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your reluctance to help restart a stalled relationship could be traced to unresolved doubts about your partner’s honesty. Rely on a trusted friend’s advice. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The capricious Sea Goat is torn between duty and diversion. Best advice: Do both. Tend to your everyday chores, and then go out and enjoy your well-earned fun time. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Cutting back on some of your activities for a few days helps to restore your energy levels. You should be feeling ready to tackle your many projects early next week. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A co-worker might secretly be harping on about your work to your mutual colleagues. But some associates will come to your defense, and the situation will ultimately work to your advantage. BORN THIS WEEK: Your ambition makes you a success at whatever you choose to do — especially if it’s in the world of the performing arts.

best characteristics. When placing pots in your yard, create a grouping near the entryway, on a narrow walkway or a stairway. “In contemporary staging, plants are used in a rhythmic and sculptural way to create a kind of living potted work of art. This look is accomplished through the repetition of identical cacti or succulents, such as the placement of three rows of miniature barrel cactus in a rectangular container.” As illustrated in “Hot Pots,” Scott suggests, “be on the lookout for unusual containers made from metal, wood or ceramic and place near a wall with a mirror, a wooden cross or Mexican Retablo. Your garden will grow and grow over the years with your travels, so don’t try to do it all at one time.” LEARNING LANDSCAPE DESIGN FROM A MASTER So often when living in a small space, we long for an expansive backyard we may have had in the past. Without a piece of land or a large yard, we must create “miniature outdoor rooms.” I had the honor of meeting one of Arizona’s foremost landscape designers while studying at the Desert Botanical Garden Landscape Designer School 10 years ago. As a transplant from Upstate New York, I had to learn how to design yards and spaces that had very few trees, and small patios with lots of pots. Cesar Mazier is a quietly famous landscape designer and former director of horticulture at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. I say “quietly famous” because he is not a boastful soul and happily shares many of his trade secrets. In my interview with him a few years ago, he shared so many of his secrets to designing a backyard that looks as if you hired a landscape designer, but is a DIY project with supplies from the hardware store.
DIY PROJECT FROM A MASTER DESIGNER According to Cesar, “a lot of home gardeners do not realize they can create an expensive-looking garden with some house paint and sturdy terra cotta pots from the hardware store. I often purchase one expensive, very tall, Chinese handmade planter, as large as my budget allows, and use that as my focal point. “Now, here is the trick. I purchase at least three terra cotta pots of varying sizes (8” to 10”) and paint them with matte outdoor house paint. Purchase small, pint-size varieties of paint in closely related colors on a color wheel. “For example, if you are highlighting a bright azure, high glaze Chinese 2-foot planter, you could purchase house paint in periwinkle blue and deep lavender. “These matte paints also have endless possibilities if you add matte white to make the terra cotta pots appear lighter or darker, almost as if you were creating your own color wheel. The possibilities are endless once you get started with a paintbrush and can of paint. “To finish the design for the patio, I place my hand-painted terra cotta pots in a circle around the 2-foot azure Chinese planter, and voila, we have a classic patio design, made by the home gardener.” Cesar’s website (cmazier.com) contains stepby-step videos for designing a complete backyard, including paths, seating, plant material and water features. His photo gallery is exquisite, and although photographed in Arizona, many of the designs can be used in Southern California. Please send us your suggestions and photos, so we can pass them on to other readers. Email email@example.com.

OCEANSIDE — For the past 15 years, an Oceanside woman's club has helped bring the joy of running to anyone seeking a healthier lifestyle. Known as the Oceanside Trotters in Training, Kathy Kinane, 63, provides a casual atmosphere to introduce running as a way to improve mental and physical health, socialize and learn how to run a 5K race. The group is free and meets at 5:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday by the fountain at the Oceanside Civic Center. The group consists of runners, walkers and joggers and anyone is welcome to join. “I wanted to find a way to get people to downtown Oceanside,” Kinane said of her motivation to start the club. “Of course now, running on The Strand is one of the most popular things to do.” Kinane’s experience with running goes back to her teenage days after winning her first race. After running in college, Kinane, who holds a master’s degree in exercise physiology, went on to coach track and field and cross country teams for three years at UC Santa Barbara. The Oceanside resident later ran in the marathon at the 1984 U.S. Olympic Trials. Kinane’s devotion to running has been a lifelong endeavor and the Trotters

view with NBC7 that she was placed on leave not due to her comments, but in retaliation for her complaint against Allman. San Dieguito paid law firm Best Best & Krieger just over $49,000 for attorney Arlene Prater to independently investigate the claim, according to district receipts. In a July 15 notice of outcome emailed to JamesWard, district administrators said the investigation determined that while Allman had been disrespectful to her, he had not discriminated against or harassed her based on her gender. “The evidence shows that Allman as a District Trustee can be demanding and disrespectful regarding the specific goals that he wants to accomplish and interests that he wants to satisfy (referred to herein by the Investigator as ‘Political’) while this conduct is not because of Ward’s gender,” the notice stated. District officials have not responded to inquiries from The Coast News regarding whether the full report will be made public. Allman, a controversial figure on the school board who has been accused of bullying and unprofessional behavior by fellow board members and community members, said Wednesday that he was “completely vindicated” in the findings of the three-month investigation. “In summary, the final

in Training club is her way of giving back to the community. Kinane eases the new runners into the program with the interval method to help avoid burnout and injury. The technique is also a way for them to have fun and see results faster than other training methods. For example, her interval method consists of running to one light pole, then walking to another and repeating the process, allowing beginning runners to find their rhythm and build stamina before trying other
workouts. “I drive from Encinitas twice a week to run with this club,” said 56-year-old Vicky Weinzierl. “Kathy has been a true inspiration, and a wealth of information with anything health and exercise related. Kathy has given me solid advice to improve my running for the last two-and-a-half years, and to condition my body for my annual hiking trip. Also, the group members are like a family, and in that they are supportive and encouraging of one another regardless of age or
experience.” Currently, there are approximately 45 people in the group and a dozen who attend each training session, which consists of making their way across the city's relatively flat streets to the harbor or down The Strand, both showcasing the views and sunsets from the nearby beaches. But as summer quickly fades away, Kinane starts to lead the group in preparing for Oceanside Turkey Trot, started in 2006, and has been an annual tradition ever since.
report cleared me of every single one of the charges that Cheryl James-Ward made against me. The investigator did not find sufficient evidence to support any of the charges levied by Cheryl James-Ward — not a single one — as I knew would happen when I called for the investigation,” Allman said at the board’s Thursday meeting. The notice of outcome stated that eight witnesses were interviewed apart from James-Ward and Allman, including fellow trustees Mauren “Mo” Muir, Julie Bronstein and Katrina Young, Interim Superintendent Tina Douglas, Deputy Superintendent Mark Miller, Associate Superintendent of Educational Services Bryan Marcus, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources Olga West, and former interim superintendent Lucille Lynch. However, the notice did not include input or interviews from any of these witnesses, and instead only provided Allman’s response to each of James-Ward’s nine claims made in her complaint. The investigator then presented brief findings related to each claim. In response to several of James-Ward’s claims — including that Allman admonished her publicly and made attempts to control her actions and negotiate her responsibilities as superintendent — the investigator argued that these actions were based on Allman’s expectations of her job responsibilities, while
admitting that they did not investigate whether these expectations were consistent with the district’s policies or education code. James-Ward’s attorney Josh Gruenberg of Gruenberg Law called the investigation “a joke,” noting that Prater, who led the investigation, has historically represented corporations against harassment claims. “The district purchased that report and they knew exactly what they were going to be getting when they agreed to buy it from Ms. Prater. Corporations and employers will from time to time hire so-called investigators to ‘investigate’ claims, and I have never seen one of them come back in support of my clients’ claims. It’s an attempt to whitewash the facts, it's rubbish, and we plan to prove that,” Gruenberg said. Gruenberg confirmed that James-Ward is still planning to file a lawsuit against the district for alleged retaliation, but declined to share when that might take place. Community members are also calling for more transparency about the investigation into Allman, particularly because it was financed with district funds. “The investigation only clears him of discrimination/harassment based on gender. In no way does it clear him of his profane, intimidating, and harassing behavior as evidenced through public record video, trustee emails, screen shots, and likely other witness testimony,” said resi-
dent Robyne Ruterbusch. “I consider this ‘independent’ investigation to be a sham and believe the taxpayers deserve to know the full truth.” “I trust the investigation, which cost us a lot of money … will become public without redaction soon,” resident Jen Sherratt told the board on Wednesday. While Allman expressed a desire to move on from what he called “a sorry and disappointing chapter in the board’s history” at Wednesday’s meeting, trustees Bronstein and Young noted there are still areas for improvement in the board’s conduct. Meetings of the San Dieguito board have grown to resemble a contentious battlefield over the past year, with frequent accusations between trustees of disrespectful behavior and hostility that have not gone unnoticed by the community. “The concerns I have to share are not only my own. Students, parents, staff, board members and other local leaders — we have all heard their testimony against [board] behavior at virtually every meeting and even in the news,” Young said. A board facilitator will also be stepping in to help establish common goals and expectations for district leadership. The board approved an $8,600 contract with K-12 leadership consultant Jim Huge & Associates to guide a governance retreat for the board and interim superintendent Tina Douglas.
