As water filled the third deck, Coburn and others were able to escape and close the hatch. However, the next portion of the escape route was more perilous as he squeezed himself through the ship’s porthole as it capsized.

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside City Council has approved a route for the city's final portion of the Coastal Rail Trail, a 44mile bicycle and pedestrian RANCHO thoroughfare connecting North County to San Diego, SFNEWS linking the existing segments of the trail together along the rail corridor. The council approved the project’s initial study, monitoring program, and alignment from Oceanside Boulevard to Morse Street. The new trail connector will be 14-feet wide with a 10-foot wide paved pathway and 2-foot shoulders on each side, along with fencing on both sides. The buildout will include constructing a prefabricated steel truss bridge over the Loma Alta Creek at Buccaneer Park, with a concrete observation deck that will run parallel next to North County Transit District’s railroad bridge already crossing over the creek. “Also, within Buccaneer Park, we’ll have a vegetative retaining wall,” said Project Manager Mahsima Mohammadi at the Dec. 1 council meeting. In 2017, city staff heard from residents about potential alignment options in-

Oceanside WWII veteran shares Pearl Harbor survival story  Women’s GOP group hosts 80th anniversary event By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Eighty years ago, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called the attack on Pearl Harbor “a day which will live in infamy." Roosevelt addressed the nation with those famous words after the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack

2,335 military personnel, 68 civilians and destroyed or damaged 15 ships. Today, the devastating blitz that served as a precursor to America's involvement in WWII brings back memories for Oceanside resident George Coburn, who was stationed on the USS Oklahoma at Pearl Harbor and shared his story of survival on Dec. 7 at a Carlsbad Republican Women’s Federated event. According to those in attendance, Coburn recalled the attack with levi-

ty, humor and humility. “It took a while for us to understand we were being attacked,” Coburn told The Coast News. “We heard on the radio several air stations were being bombed.” Coburn had enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1938. Just three years later on Dec. 7, 1941, alarms rang for the sailors with an announcement for the sailors: “All hands, man battle stations, real planes, real bombs, no s---!” Coburn said he quickly grabbed his shirt and

CSUSM, Palomar confident in ability to protect against cyberattacks By Stephen Wyer

REGION — As cyber and ransomware attacks are on the rise against higher-learning institutions, North County colleges and universities say they are confident in their ability to withstand such intrusions. According to Jacob Doiron, a cybersecurity researcher at San Diego State University, colleges make ideal targets for hackers for a whole host of reasons, chief among these being a lack of funding for cybersecurity at schools as well as the relative openness of college networks that allow tens of thousands of users to connect to systems at any given time. “Criminals want to go after targets that have a balance of low security and a high need to pay the ransom quickly…universities have a need to get everything back online quickly, and university and college IT and security departments tend to be chronically underfunded,” Doiron said. Doiron added that even well-funded college IT departments are at a significant disadvantage due to the open nature of a college network — it takes just one unwitting user clicking on a malicious link to give cybercriminals the foothold they need in the system. “You have so many users at a college who may or may not be well trained when it comes to cybersecurity…it’s likely you can get a least one person to click on a phishing link just given scope and scale…there’s so much complexity to keeping the network protected every time, and the hackers only need to succeed once,” Doiron said. Cyberattacks against higher-ed institutions have skyrocketed nationwide in the past couple of years, with the FBI issuing an advisory warning earlier this year. Between 2019 and 2020, the number of ransomware attacks on colleges around the world doubled, and cybercriminals’ average ransom demand tripled, according to intelligence reports by two cybersecurity firms. Just over one year ago, Cal State San Marcos was the victim of a major cyberattack that threatened to compromise vast amounts of data kept in the school’s critical systems, according to Kevin Morningstar, the school’s Dean of Instructional & Information Technology Services. While the attack was ultimately thwarted with the help of a third-party cybersecurity team, the incident heightened the importance of taking a proactive approach to ensuring the integrity of the university’s online systems, said Morningstar. Since last year, CSUSM has deployed a multifaceted cybersecurity strategy to stop further intrusions, the dean said.

BOTH INLAND institutions Cal State University San Marcos and Palomar College have implemented multi-faceted cybersecurity measures to stop future breaches. Courtesy graphic

One crucial element to this strategy has been the universal implementation of multi-factor authentication—an online mechanism whereby a user must provide two or more pieces of evidence to verify their identity before being granted system access. Secondly, Morningstar said that security around the college’s most critical systems has been tightened and layered, with some administrative systems being so secure that a user has to be physically present on campus in a specific location to use them. Third, the school’s systems are now segmented in such a way that even if, for instance, an administrator’s username and password credentials are stolen, the compromising of one system will not result in the entire network being similarly compromised. This type of “network segmentation” is crucial in a successful proactive approach to cybersecurity, Doiron said. If systems are not properly segmented, a single security breach in the network can allow hackers to “tunnel” from one system to another and potentially significantly increase the amount of damage done. For instance, a hacker with initial access just to the school’s learning management system could subsequently gain access to the college’s registrar system or the accounts payable system. At Palomar College in Escondido, administrators have implemented a variety of added security measures in recent years, including network segmentation, multi-factor authentication, and increasing cybersecurity awareness among students, staff, and faculty, according to Mike Day, the school’s director of information services. Day credited Palomar not having a major cyberattack in seven years to a recent concerted effort to bolster cybersecurity in a whole host of areas. “We have a lot of tools in place here from

email they report it and say this looks weird, is this for real…that’s because of our education campaign and communication,” he said. Day expressed confidence in Palomar’s ability to withstand future cyberattacks, while acknowledging the gravity of the threat posed by increasingly sophisticated hackers. “We’re fairly confident but we just always have to be on the lookout,” Day said. “Folks are getting sophisticated these days with their attacks.” Day also echoed Doiron’s point that IT departments at many colleges, including Palomar, are underfunded and understaffed, putting them at a disadvantage in the fight against hackers. “They’ve [the cybercriminals] got a lot more resources than us, a lot more tools…and we’re a prime target because of the openness of our networks and the rich data that’s in our systems,” Day said.

Letters to the Editor

‘Progressive drivel’ compels me Dear Editor, This letter is in defense of The Coast News’ reporting, editorial content and investigative reports. My wife and I have lived in the same Leucadia home for 38 years and raised two children along the way. My wife is a registered nurse at Scripps who has cared for many residents over the years. I have owned and operated a small manufacturing firm for more than four decades. So, with respect to Darius Degher’s letter, “What happened to The Coast News?” The answer is nothing but improvement, better reporting and generally more balanced. My wife and I have been constant readers of The Coast News since we moved here from Los Angeles. Are there occasionally slants left or right? Of course. But on the whole, I would say the paper has grown and matured with time, especially when it comes to investigative reporting. Degher observes and opines that the newspaper has developed the flavor of Fox News. To me, this represents the epitome of liberal/progressive intolerance where any opposing opinion which might represent a conservative viewpoint is ridiculed and rejected out of hand and therefore anyone with a conservative viewpoint is considered illiterate, racist or anti-American. I appreciate a “liberal Democratic” majority may exist in Encinitas and it surely does at the local government level. But not 100% of our citizenry are of this persuasion. I certainly am not. The City of Encinitas is the most poorly run and managed municipality of any North County coastal community. I recall when the city was formed and stripped

from the county so as to provide more direct government input and local control over our community. Since incorporation, the city has drifted further leftward at the expense of good and enlightened policies for the benefit of the local population. The Walker situation is a perfect example of a secret, closed-door city administration run amok. Perhaps if the city would consider hiring more Sheriff’s deputies and providing more local traffic enforcement, this accident might not have happened. I travel our local roads every day and can attest to the erratic driving, speeding and general disrespect for traffic laws. I cannot remember the last time I saw ANY enforcement of traffic laws — just more speed bumps and flashing signs. Encinitas, sandwiched between two very well-run cities — Solana Beach and Carlsbad — is managed disgracefully. The Coast News’ report about the housing discrimination is a prime example of long-term liberal policies benefiting the well-connected elite. And especially those “special few” who are able to influence politicians to enact legislation to enrich themselves of time because they have patient money. How can a law be so flawed as to provide for well-heeled investors to control the availability of low to moderate income housing through long-term leases while not providing a fair mechanism for low-income people to achieve home ownership? The entire process in this city is a disgrace and I find it rich when Degher opines that the ethics and integrity of some of our elected officials are above reproach. The words “ethics” and

“politicians” in the same sentence is an oxymoron. The best one can say about most elected officials is their life’s dream is to be important and influential. And of course, to win re-election. The crowning glory of Degher’s letter is his biased reference to Supervisor Jim Desmond and his support of former President Trump, as if that disqualifies him from an opinion. Trump was a real estate scallywag, a crude womanizer and a narcissist, but he was duly elected. There is a lot to criticize about every facet of our community, but I would describe our city government as sclerotic, dysfunctional and biased. For instance, there is a great effort in Cardiff to improve infrastructure and provide for a more peaceful environment like the quiet railroad crossing at Birmingham. This, of course, is the tony neighborhood where I believe many of our council members reside. The intersection at Leucadia Blvd and Coast Highway 101 would greatly benefit from a quite crossing. Instead, our neighborhood is slated for two more grade-level crossings between Leucadia Boulevard and La Costa Avenue, likely resulting in a constant horn blowing. And yet, somehow, the city has found the resources to provide underground rail tunnels at Swami’s and Paul Ecke Central Elementary. This is just more evidence of the second-class citizen status of all who live north of Leucadia Blvd. In all my life, I’ve never written a letter to the editor. But the progressive drivel in Degher’s letter compelled me to respond. Dave Clinton Leucadia

alifornia’s ballot initiative process has never been more effective or beneficial to voters (who are also utility customers) than since the strongly consumerist Proposition 103 passed handily in 1988. Now the San Diego-based Sixth District state Court of Appeal has brazenly tried to gut a major part of that law, which made the insurance commissioner an elected official and has saved insurance customers more than $110 billion in excessive charges, an average of about $3.4 billion a year. No other state has a similar law, and the judges moved to overturn a big part of it in a dispute over delayed car insurance premium refunds from State Farm Insurance resulting from overcharges during the first year of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s not only State Farm that’s refusing so far to refund money paid while rates were based on pre-pandemic driving habits. So far, state Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara has asked companies for $5.5 billion in voluntary rebates, but only $1.9 billion has been paid. State Farm’s share of the unpaid $3.6 billion balance due to almost every driver in California comes to about $100 million. The company wants to prevent that payout from becoming mandatory. This is one area where part of California’s cost of living should be lower than anywhere else. No other state limits rate increases and allows refunds where justified. But the appellate decision maintains voters in 1988 never meant to permit the insurance commissioner to order refunds, as Lara and several previous commissioners have done. Voters, said the ruling, were “not concerned about rate manipulation.” This was an absurd assertion, since Proposition 103 is almost exclusively about precisely that nefarious practice. “We were out to prevent people from getting fleeced by insurance companies,” said Harvey Rosenfield, the Consumer Watchdog lawyer who authored the law. “So this decision could not have gotten the issue more wrong.” Rosenfield is appealing the ruling to the state Supreme Court, citing two prior decisions from that court which unanimously upheld the insurance commissioner’s right to order justified refunds. But he’s not certain the state’s highest court will even take the case, since several new justices have arrived since the most recent ruling on this issue, repeatedly raised by

insurance companies hoping to get a statewide decision exactly like the one from San Diego. “Californians passed Proposition 103 to protect themselves against arbitrary rates and discriminatory practices by requiring insurance companies to keep rates and premiums fair at all times or else be accountable to the insurance commissioner,” Rosenfield said. But State Farm, Mercury Insurance and some other companies have never stopped trying to return California insurance law to something like what applies elsewhere. So far, that effort has failed. But the insurance industry, never short of lawyers, keeps on fighting and the San Diego decision is the most favorable one the companies have ever won. The issue of whether insurance commissioners can order refunds is important, but it’s nowhere near as vital as Proposition 103’s giving the commissioner review power over rate increases, a provision that would be at risk if this ruling prevails. Amazingly, the San Diego court held that Proposition 103 never intended to protect consumers — despite that being the entire theme of the Proposition 103 campaign and its application for more than 30 years. Rather, the court said voters intended to protect insurance companies. Now the only folks who can overturn this astounding, unfounded conclusion are the seven justices of the state Supreme Court. Serendipitously, three of them — Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Justice Martin Jenkins and Justice Joshua Groban — are up for voter approval or rejection next fall. The three will be subjects of yes-or-no votes on whether each should be permitted to serve another 12 years. If the no side prevails on any of them, that justice would be removed and replaced by a new appointee named by whoever wins the concurrent vote for governor. For sure, yes-or-no votes should hinge in large part on how the justices rule on Proposition 103. That’s because any judge voting either not to take the case or to uphold the San Diego decision would essentially be saying the voters’ will counts for nothing.

Residents say mixed-use project too big for downtown By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Many residents say a proposed eight-story, combined residential and hotel development to be located on the corner of Seagaze Drive and Nevada Street downtown is too big for the neighborhood. The proposed 147,060 square-foot, mixed-use project that would take over what is now an empty lot at 712 Seagaze Drive includes 103 market rate and 12 low-income studio apartments, and 64 hotel rooms on the upper two floors of the building. A total of 153 parking spaces with 97 standardand 49 compact-size would be provided in the project’s parking garage, along with an additional 7 spaces on Seagaze Drive adjacent to the project’s boundary. Of those garage spaces, 25 will be reserved for electric vehicles, with 12 of those providing charging stations. An additional 59 bicycle racks will be included and five bicycle lockers for residents as well as a loading space for commercial purposes. Normally a project this size would require about 186 parking spaces, however, because the project is located in the Downtown Transit

Oriented District (TOD), with close proximity to bus and rail public transportation, only 136 are required. The studio apartments would be about 300 square feet each. While on the smaller side for standard American studio apartments, the project’s developer justifies the apartment size paired with the 1,700 square feet of common outdoor living areas and more than 2,750 square feet of indoor amenities like a pool, spa deck, indoor gathering space with a catering kitchen, dining and lounge areas; workspaces including a private room for individuals to work outside of their apartments without commuting; a gym and an outside area for pet relief. Kansas-based project developer Elsey Holdings LLC, also known by its firm name as The Prime Company, plans to market the studio apartments to “young professionals, singles and military personnel wanting a beach town experience” according to its website. The project received a majority vote of approval from the city’s Downtown Advisory Committee at its Dec. 1 meeting, with five in favor, two opposed and two members absent. A few conditions were

made upon approval: the project must restrict shortterm rental (STR) usages, commit to limiting access to hotel and STR guests from primary residential floors, dedicate one space per unit with no monthly parking fees, and also review its proposed alleyway garage entrance before the project goes to City Council. Residents oppose size,

Investment group sells Vista retail space for $13.3M  Texas-based firm buys parcels as investment By Stephen Wyer

VISTA — A swath of retail space in Vista was successfully sold to new ownership on Tuesday for $13.3 million, according to parties involved in the sale. The 28,440 square ft. parcel of property sold Tuesday was the fifth and final parcel of the Vista Terrace Marketplace to be sold by the marketplace’s former owners, the Black Lion Investment Group, which has been selling off sections of the development since 2019, according to a press release from the firm. This last parcel was bought by Crow Holdings, a privately-owned real estate investment management and development firm based in Dallas, Texas. Under the ownership of Black Lion, the Vista Terrace Marketplace development (with all five parcels totaling 75,000 square ft.) has seen the arrival of a number of new successful chain retailers in recent years, including Sprouts Farmers Market, Jersey Mikes, Verizon, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Sports Clips. Locals should expect few if any changes to the shopping center under the new ownership, according to Vista economic development director Kevin Ham, who expressed his view

VISTA TERRACE Marketplace will likely see few changes, if any, under new ownership. Former owners Black Lion made $40 million on the sale after needed improvements. Courtesy rendering

that Crow Holdings seems to have purchased the property as a long-term stable investment rather than with any intent to make further developments or improvements. Ham credited Black Lion with having made significant and needed renovations to the Terrace Marketplace since 2019, giving the site significant value as an asset to the new ownership. “Most of the developments and improvements here have already been made. Black Lion really improved the value of the center…they invested heavily in this site and built the new Sprouts…now the site is over 90% developed with high quality tenants and a real active shopping center,” Ham said. Black Lion has made $40 million from selling off the five parcels of the development to various private entities since it com-

pleted renovations on the shopping center in 2019, according to the press release. In a statement, the firm’s president Robert Rivani, credited these renovations and improvements to existing development as being responsible for the area’s success as a now-thriving retail center. “The success of our Vista Terrace Marketplace investment is emblematic of our broader strategy,” Rivani said. “We modernized the property through renovations and other improvements that added value and attracted internet-resistant tenants on NNN [triple-net] leases. The continued success of this shopping center will generate meaningful NOI [net operating income] for the new owners for the duration of their ownership.” The Terrace Marketplace property has been a local fixture and a retail

center in Vista for nearly 70 years, but had fallen into a state of considerable disrepair when Black Lion originally purchased the site in 2017, according to Ham. “Before they [Black Lion] purchased the site, it was a haven for some very unsavory elements and graffiti…once they invested the money, time, and energy that they did into the site, it significantly improved properties in the surrounding neighborhoods and the community, and the amount of vehicle and foot traffic in the area has significantly increased,” he said. Led by Rivani, Black Lion is a privately held commercial real estate investment firm that primarily pursues commercial real estate in South Florida. Crow Holdings could not be reached in time for comment on this story.

to remove the hotel component of the project and to add more parking spaces for overflow. Joseph Gallagher, a resident of Vine Street, called the project a “future blight.” “In cities such as New York, Chicago or Cleveland, a development such as this would be seen as just a future tenement,” Gallagher said. “Not a good proposal

for our future in Oceanside.” Because the development provides 12, or 10% low-income units, it is allowed to go over the area’s maximum density as per the state’s density bonus law. The law also allows for waivers of certain development standards. The developer of this project is currently requesting waivers for setbacks, open space requirements, landscaping minimums, parking width next to columns, compact parking spaces, garage drive aisle widths, building height and required façade modulation. In the past, city staff explained projects that apply the state density bonus law are often difficult for local municipalities to deny because of the law’s focus, which is to encourage developers to build more affordable and senior housing. The law allows for up to a 50% increase in density for most of these projects. According to the developer, competing developments at the top end of the market have priced out many people who want to live in a coastal California beach community. Meanwhile, they are able to target market-rate and low-income residents due to the project’s higher density.

Carlsbad’s homeless plan shows early signs of success  Changes show homeless seeking more resources By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The city’s homelessness plan is seeing some early success through the first quarter of 2021, according to a report during a Carlsbad City Council meeting on Tuesday. Mandy Mills, director of housing and homeless services, Holly Nelson, the city's senior program manager of housing and homeless services, and Cpt. Christie Calderwood, of the Carlsbad Police Department, each reported on various aspects of the city’s goal to reduce homelessness by 50% over the next five years. The council also approved an amendment to the homeless plan to change the emergency voucher program implementation and explore options at La Posada to include women and children and explore Project Homekey funds. In an earlier agenda item, the council also approved an amended ordinance to enforce city laws during a state of emergency regarding the parking of oversized vehicles on public streets. “You wanted to create measurable objectives to create transparency,” Nelson said of the homeless plan. “This provides an opportunity for council and the community … to evaluate our effectiveness.” From July 1 through Sept. 30 (the first Fiscal Year quarter), she said the city had 28 shelter placements, 16 people to permanent housing and contacted 253 people. The police department reported 1,542 calls for service, some of which were multiple calls concerning the same person, and one encampment cleanup per month.

cluding concerns about potential impacts to the park. To minimize conflicts between trail and park users, the Coastal Rail Trail will be elevated over the park instead of cutting through it, in an effort to prevent any impacts to the existing footpath along Loma Alta Creek. The city’s Bicycle Master Plan has deemed this project a priority in the city. The project is still in its preliminary design phase. The city still needs a regular coastal permit and coastal development permit as well as NCTD’s permission, which Mohammadi said will be obtained in the project’s final design. “We are far from the construction,” Mohammadi said. Carlsbad resident Katie Taylor told Council that they needed to address the city's homelessness issues

The city also has contracts with the Community Resource Center and Interfaith Community Services for social work. Nelson said the CRC placed seven homeless households into permanent housing, bridged eight people into higher-level resources and enrolled 36 individuals into the program. As for Interfaith, the nonprofit has two clinicians providing coverage seven days per week. She reported Interfaith placed nine people into permanent housing,

bridged 19 people into emergency shelters and referred 32 to mental health, substance abuse and health services. Calderwood, meanwhile, said 66% of those contacted by the Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) accepted services and 34% refused. However, it was unclear how many people were contacted by HOT who accepted services, as both Calderwood and Nelson said the various categories for homeless and data with each can appear to contradict each other.

“It’s a landscape that is difficult to navigate,” Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel said. “Working with various viewpoints and trying to find common ground. It’s going to be a regional issue and something we have to work with our partners on. I’m excited to see prioritizing La Posada and women and children.” According to Calderwood, in conjunction with the plan, changes to municipal code with respect to enforcement have resulted in more motivation

for the homeless to seek assistance. “It does not appear more enforcement has hurt service,” Calderwood said. “In the first week of enforcement, five chronic addicts willingly requested assistance. In the prior two weeks, not one person went to rehab. We had two citations prior (to the new plan) compared to 40 citations. Recent enforcement is resulting in motivation in progress for the homeless community who have resisted in the past.” Christine Davis, exec-

utive director of the Carlsbad Village Association, said there has been some improvement in the Village regarding the homeless. Also, the city has placed four bathrooms in the Village, according to the staff report. Mayor Matt Hall said the addition of 50 affordable housing units will be coming online early next year. The project, known as Windsor Pointe, upset some Barrio residents over changes to the project allowing severely mentally ill people to apply.

County’s mobile crisis response teams expanded this week By City News Service

REGION — San Diego County supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to accept a report on the countywide Mobile Crisis Response Team initiative that will be expanded Wednesday as an alternative to treat those with mental health or substance abuse issues. Rather than relying on traditional law enforcement, the MCRT concept dispatches behavioral health experts to emergency calls when it is appropriate. Sixteen mobile crisis teams will be available across the county. A lot is asked of law enforcement, but having officers respond to behavioral health situations isn’t something they should be doing, Fletcher said. He added that the county will “learn a lot of lessons, and have some bumps along the way'' as the program continues. Since being launched several months ago, the MCRT has responded to 268 calls, with 30% of those being taken to a crisis stabilization unit, and 45% being connected to community services, according to Fletcher's office. Fletcher said the county is working with

law-enforcement agencies and hoping to expand the MCRT’s operating hours, which are now 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fletcher said the MCRT will eventually have its own emergency number, 988. Because the public used to calling 911 for emergencies, it will take time for people to remember the new number, Fletcher said. Nick Macchione, coun-

ty Health and Human Services Agency director, said that with the MCRT, “our focus will be a service option that's clinician- and client-centered.” The board approved a proposal by Fletcher last year to make MCRTs available in the county. Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer said a well-intended law enforcement officer may not see a person in a mental health crisis, but instead as a public

safety threat. The MCRT could avoid such tragedies, Lawson-Remer said, adding, “This is quite literally an issue of life and death.” During a public hearing, callers praised the MCRTs. Darwin Fishman, a member of Racial Justice Coalition of San Diego said that “people like Alfred Olango would be alive today if we’d had an MCRT up and running well” several years ago.

On Sept. 27, 2016, in response to a 911 call, El Cajon police shot and killed Olongo, who they believed was holding a firearm. On that same day, Olango’s sister said her brother was acting in a strange manner, and called authorities three times asking for immediate help. An emergency response team was requested, but apparently didn't arrive. Fishman added that his coalition expect a lot more from the MCRT, and hopes the crisis units “don’t end up like just another prison” without proper treatment for those with mental health problems. Josh Coyne, of the Downtown San Diego Partnership, said his group is looking”to this program (having) long-lasting impacts,'' especially when it comes to the ongoing homeless crisis. “Business owners are frustrated and are looking for results,” Coyne said. “Time is of the essence.” Those needing a MCRT may call 1-888-7247240. County officials are working to create access through 911 in all communities, according to Fletcher’s office.

before they approve this project so that they don’t struggle with the same issues with homelessness along the Coastal Rail Trail in Carlsbad. Mohammadi noted that staff will work with the city’s police department to make sure some community concerns regarding homeless foot and bike traffic through that stretch of the rail trail will be addressed by the time the path is ready for use, which likely won’t be for another three to four years. “Plenty of time to address the issues and see how our homeless shelter is doing,” said Mayor Esther Sanchez. “Hopefully well.” Plans are currently underway to prepare the former Ocean Shores High School to become the site of the city’s new homeless shelter. The San Diego Rescue Mission will operate the 50-bed facility due to open by late spring or early sum- A SMALLER bridge will be built for bike and pedestrian travel as part of the city’s final stretch of the Coastal Rail Trail, which mer. will be completed in three to four years.

Blakespear, Gloria reverse course on mileage charge  Sudden flip raises questions over motivations By Steve Puterski

REGION — In a surprising move, three prominent elected officials on the San Diego Association of Government’s board of directors suddenly voiced concerns with a mileage charge last week after more than a year of debate over the controversial proposal. Encinitas Mayor and SANDAG chairwoman Catherine Blakespear, San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo-Solis each released statements in opposition to a proposed road-user charge just hours before the board’s Dec. 3 meeting. “I’ve heard from count-

less San Diegans about this plan,” Gloria said. “We have received a resoundingly clear message that a road charge is concerning. I share that concern. I don’t think this particular part of the plan we should be con-

sidering.” During the meeting, both Gloria and Blakespear said a per-mile fee for drivers, which was increased to four cents per mile, should be taken out of the 2021 Regional Plan, also known as

“5 Big Moves.” San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones, whose city was the first to pass a resolution in opposition of any new taxes, charges or fees imposed by SANDAG in October, questioned the

authenticity of their statements, noting that several board members, including Supervisor Jim Desmond, have raised these concerns since the plan was released last year. Specifically, opponents questioned how a fourcents-per-mile road user charge and two proposed half-cent tax increases (in 2022 and 2028) will help middle-class and low-income drivers who commute daily to work. “I am shocked by these comments because for two (calendar) years we’ve been talking about this,” Jones said. “Many of the board members have repeatedly said road user charges are not OK. I think this is a complete confusion tactic.” In addition to San Marcos, Vista, Escondido and Oceanside all have passed resolutions in opposition to the proposed new charges,

while Del Mar was split. In late October, SANDAG received more than 1,500 comments on the draft 2021 Regional Plan, many of which were critical of proposed taxes and fees, according to multiple news reports. But amidst public criticism, Blakespear touted the draft plan with no mention of opposing a mileage charge. “The 2021 Regional Plan is an unprecedented investment in the San Diego region’s future,” Blakespear’s statement reads. “We have listened to the community and are proposing a modernized transportation system through the 2021 Regional Plan that works for everyone, with affordable options that get us to the people and places we want to go in a safer and TURN TO SANDAG ON A8

Magnolia first of school district’s many renovations By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The first of many school renovations under Measure HH, a bond measure to fund Carlsbad Unified School District’s extensive multiyear improvement program, is nearly complete. Magnolia Elementary School, which opened in 1954, underwent a complete overhaul, including new classrooms, multi-purpose room, technology, natural lighting, an innovation lab, playground equipment, kitchen, fencing and a fresh-looking library, according to Principal Aaron Nelson and CUSD Superintendent Ben Churchill. The cost for the rebuild was $21 million with only a few minor elements left to be completed after construction workers began their work last summer, Nelson said. “The unveiling of our modernization coincided with our return to school, so it was like a rebirth for our school and community,” Nelson said. “It was like we were getting to start over fresh. It’s a school with deep history and deep ties to the community.” The renovations are part of the district’s fivephase plan under Measure HH, a $265 million school bond passed by voters in 2018. Prior to the bond’s passage, the school district

had set plans to expedite the bidding process and land reputable contractors due to the approval of a similar bond measure for other regional school districts. As for Magnolia, Churchill and Nelson said one key component of the renovations was to keep the school’s aesthetic in keeping with the character of the neighborhood. Nelson said many of the school’s population, which is about 500, are second and third-generation students. “We wanted to honor the past and the tradition to our community that was so important to the school,” Nelson said. “But we also wanted to move into the 21st century and move it into the type of school that is going to prepare kids for their future and offer them the opportunities they need to be successful.” For Nelson, the highlight of the renovations was to the school’s infrastructure, such as stormwater run-off, wiring, plumbing and duct system. He said rainfall would turn the middle of the campus into a flood zone, but now the runoff is diverted to an underground system. Also, the school was able to expand its Magnolia Farms area, where students tend to several chickens and sell the eggs for feed.

ENCINITAS — The Encintias City Council on Wednesday night unanimously denied a resident’s appeal seeking to overturn a decision to relocate a homeless parking lot to the city’s Community and Senior Center. The appellant, Steve Gerken, filed his claim with the city on Nov. 3, arguing that the community was left out of the decision-making process. Gerken told The Coast News he is not opposed to Jewish Family Services’ Safe Parking Program but takes issue with the new site and the relocation process, which he said left out other more viable sites. “We do not have objections to the program,” Gerken said. “We just don’t know why this site was picked. The Safe Parking lot is currently located at the Leichtag Foundation’s property on Saxony Road through the end of the month. The program offers a safe place for those experiencing homelessness and living in their vehicles to sleep overnight. Encinitas residents have expressed their concerns with the proximity of the safe parking lot to two schools, Oak Crest Middle School and the St. John School. Those in the program are vetted and must agree to strict rules and guidelines to remain in the program, such as rules prohibiting the use of drugs or alcohol while in the lot. Mayor Catherine Blakespear at a meeting in September about the program said there is no reason for residents to be concerned about safety. “This idea that it shouldn’t be near a middle school or near a preschool, to me, they’re not dangerous so that is an irrelevant statement,” Blakespear said in September. On Wednesday night

Blakespear and the council voted unanimously to deny the appeals. “This program helps people and hurts no one,” Blakespear said. Councilmember Joe Mosca made his feelings on the decision very clear. “This is not a difficult decision for me. What is difficult for me is to sit up in this chair and do nothing,” Mosca said. Gerken said Jewish Family Service, a nonprofit organization that operates the program in partnership with the City of Encinitas, gave the city a list of 11 potential sites for the site. However, the city said the community center was the only viable option. The San Dieguito Union High School District, of which Oak Crest is a member school, has already openly come out against the placement of the program so close to one of its sites. Gerken said Trustee Mo Muir has recently sent another letter to the city opposing the decision and newly appointed superintendent Dr. Cheryl James-

Ward spoke on behalf of the district Wednesday night. “It’s not the homeless they’re worried about, it’s the people that prey on the most vulnerable members of society like the young,” Gerken said. “Dr. Ward has had to develop plans to keep children safe from horrific acts of violence they had to witness to and from school as (CEO of Saan Diego charter school e3 Civic High). So she is an expert on San Diego homelessness and our public schools.” The school district has previously said that the city did not include them in the relocation process. However, James-Ward, who began her tenure as superintendent on Nov. 1, was not with the district when the city made its decision. At the appeal, JamesWard urged the council to reconsider the location of the safe parking lot. “Most of the homeless may leave, but there are other homeless who come because there is a homeless parking lot,” JamesWard, who left the meeting

immediately following her comments, said. “A homeless place is a magnet for other homeless, so they will also show up.” Sheriff’s Captain Dustin Lopez of the North Coastal Station said there is no reason for him to believe the lot would attract more crime to the area. One resident during public comments claimed a sheriff’s deputy told him they have already found drug paraphernalia near the planned new location of the parking lot, but Captain Lopez said that is untrue. “Part of my job every morning is to look into a log to see any crimes that have been committed or any evidence that has been logged. I saw nothing on syringes being logged from that location. I saw no crime from that location,” Lopez said. The Leichtag Foundation agreed last month to extend the use of its property for the safe parking lot through the end of the month. The parking lot will remain at the new site at least through June of next year.

affordable options that get us to the people and places we want to go in a safer and cleaner way.” Carl DeMaio, a conservative radio host and founder of Reform California, recently issued a statement blasting the representatives’ collective about-face, specifically questioning Gloria’s motivations. “When it comes to costly tax hikes, we don’t trust Todd Gloria for a second,” DeMaio wrote. “Todd Gloria says he doesn’t want a Mileage Tax right now, but he still intends to vote for the SANDAG plan that includes a Mileage Tax! Todd Gloria is simply playing political games to buy some time because he is still backing a massive sales tax hike being put on the November

election. “San Diego drivers will not be safe from a costly Mileage Tax until we replace Todd Gloria and other SANDAG board members with new leaders who will oppose all tax hikes and force SANDAG to fulfill its promises made to taxpayers to fix our roads.”

What’s the plan? SANDAG released its final plan on Nov. 30 with expectations the board would approve it on Dec. 10. But several board members, including Jones, Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall, Del Mar Mayor Terry Gaasterland and Oceanside City Councilman Chris Rodriguez, called for a 90-day delay to allow city staff to review the 1,000-plus page document. According to the

DEC. 10, 2021

plan, many of the improvements in North County come in the form of managed lanes, or toll roads, on state Route 78 and interstates 5 and 15. The managed lanes would leave just one dedicated lane open to all motorists, while the other lanes would come with another charge. Hall said the plan will cut major highway and road projects originally planned through the first TransNet tax passed in 2004, including further widening of Interstate 5, state Route 78 and other interchanges. Rodriguez said it appears SANDAG is heading down the same path with proposed tax increases to fund largescale plans. Gaasterland said gas taxes and the road user charge should be separated, with the state taking the lead on those processes.

Where’s the money? Jones said she could not vote in favor of the plan for those reasons mentioned by her counterparts, along with no clear funding mechanisms locked in place. Should the board remove the road user charge, it would eliminate more than at least $10 billion in funding. Additionally, a majority of the board has also called for free transit for all by 2030, which would eliminate at least another $14 billion from the plan, while leaving the North County Transit District and San Diego Metropolitan Transit System in financial distress. Both transit agencies are projected to have a 40% operating budget shortfall until 2048. “TransNet is not supposed to fund all of transit,” Blakespear said. “Transit costs are funded by recovery boxes and grants. We can’t rebalance these different buckets without knowing how they all operate.” According to the final draft, the cost of the plan is $172 billion, but those calculations were made with 2020 dollars. In the year of expenditure, the cost rises to $269 billion, which accounts for inflation and increases in labor and materials costs, according to a clarifying email from SANDAG.

Wettstein named GEO style director  Encinitas skater set to release own fashion collection By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — There are many ways to describe Encinitas local Bryce Wettstein — high school student, skateboarder, Olympian, musician, philanthropist. And now add "fashion icon" to the list. Wettstein, 17, was recently named the new style director of LA-based skate apparel company GEO Skate, also known as The GEO Metro Party, and will soon have her own signature collection available through the brand. Wettstein, a student at San Dieguito Academy, has been a GEO fan for some time and began communicating with the brand before her trip to Tokyo this summer for the Olympic

Games. “It was about a year ago,” co-founder of GEO Charlie Cosser told The Coast News. “We had just found her on Instagram and we both expressed that we were mutual fans of each other. She had already loved the clothes that we were putting out.” As style director for GEO, Wettstein will work closely with Cosser and others in the company to think of new ways to expand the brand further in the skating community. “Being welcomed into the GEO Fam feels like coming home but I’m not surprised because that’s how GEO makes everybody feel,” Wettstein said. “I can’t wait to begin this exquisite adventure” Before the partnership became official, Cosser knew the match was right for his company after watching Wettstein compete at the Olympic Games

in Tokyo. “We always said when we were developing GEO that we wanted to create this inclusive atmosphere in the skate community and in skate culture. We were looking for the colorful people, the people who were essentially bucking trends,” Cosser said. “And seeing Bryce strumming her ukulele right before dropping in for her run in Tokyo kind of solidified that she was the one for us.” Aside from her signature collection, which Cosser says will be available at major retailers Urban Outfitters, Tillys, Dolls Kill and Eastern Skateboard Supply, Wettstein will also be helping form the identity of GEO as a whole in her role as style director. Cosser says Wettsetin began sending illustrations for her ideas around the time of the Olympics. “There will potential-

ly be some fun items that are truly representative of Bryce and her trademark look. Perhaps a propeller hat in there or some mismatched socks or overalls might appear,” Cosser said. “It’s still early in the process but one of the most attractive things about bringing Bryce in was her knack for mismatching patterns and making something uniquely her own.” While the process for the signature collection is still early, GEO expects a release date of March 2022 with the potential to first release the clothing line to local shops in Encinitas. “That would most likely be our first call once we have something to show them. Bryce has an extremely strong relationship at McGills Skate Shop and that I can imagine would be a dream for Bryce and a dream for us to have a Bryce Wettstein product there,” Cosser said.

hose dreaming of a white Christmas in North County will be able to get just a taste this holiday season at the Del Mar fairgrounds. This weekend for the second consecutive year, Vincenzo Giammanco and CBF Productions has brought back the classic Holidays in Your Car drive-thru holiday lights experience to Del Mar along with a new walk around experience, the Snow N Glow Holiday Festival, for families to visit. “This is our second year here and I think we were able to figure out the kinks and make it better for Del Mar this year,” Giammanco, founder of CBF Productions, told The Coast News. After a long hiatus, Giammanco’s company brought back the drive-thru holiday lights display

that was beloved by families in San Diego County. It came during a spike in COVID-19 cases last year but being an event completely inside your own vehicle made it suitable for families to enjoy safely together. “Last year it was intense because we were really in the pandemic and people were just excited to get out and still be in a safe space,” Giammanco said. “It was a tradition that people had been doing for years and they definitely missed it. I think everyone was grateful to have it back in the community.” CBF Productions, based out of Ventura, California, boasts over 1 million different lights between its drive-thru display and the walk around experience.

Coburn jumped 75 feet into the water and then swam to the USS Maryland where he boarded and jumped into action feeding a gunner on deck. Eleven days later, Coburn was assigned to the USS Louisville and when asked what battle he was in, he slyly replied, “every battle in the Pacific Theatre.” One of his final missions was the legendary and violent Battle of Okinawa where a kamikaze plane hit near Coburn’s station knocking him unconscious and hitting him with shrapnel. After achieving the rank of lieutenant junior grade and leaving the military, Coburn led an exciting life. He was married for 59 years and had two children. Saundra Cima, who vol-

unteers with Honor Flight San Diego, met Coburn three years ago when she traveled with him to Washington, D.C. and invited him to be a guest speaker at the event. “It’s nice to have young people to get to hear the stories,” Cima said. “For me, it’s a treat of a lifetime. When he was in the mili-

tary, he used it as a catalyst to do amazing things in his life.” For Cima, the stories of those remaining from the Greatest Generation must be told to not repeat history. And while Coburn shares his story openly, he said bluntly, “War is a waste.”

Aztecs in Frisco Bowl; Petco hosts bowl By City News Service

REGION — San Diego State will face Conference USA champion Texas San Antonio in the Frisco Bowl on Dec. 21 in Frisco, Texas, the Aztecs’ 11th bowl appearance in 12 seasons. San Diego State is 112, but the Aztecs are coming off a 46-13 loss to Utah State in the Mountain West championship game last Saturday. The Roadrunners are 12-1, including a 49-41 victory over Western Kentucky last Friday in the Conference USA Championship. The Aztecs will be playing in the Frisco Bowl for the second time. They lost to Ohio, 27-0, in the 2018 game. San Diego State withdrew from consideration for a bowl last season, ending its streak of 10 consecutive bowl appearances. The Aztecs will be making their 19th bowl appearance, 15 in Division I play. The Aztecs have a 9-9 bowl record, 6-8 in Division I. UCLA VS. N.C. STATE IN HOLIDAY BOWL AT PETCO REGION — UCLA will face North Carolina State in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28, the first football game to be played at Petco Park, organizers announced Dec. 5. The Holiday Bowl gets the third selection among Pac-12 Conference teams,

with the Rose Bowl getting the conference champion and the Alamo Bowl getting the second choice. The Holiday Bowl is in a group with the Cheez-It Bowl and Gator Bowl that have the first picks among Atlantic Coast Conference teams following the New Year’s Six bowls. This will be the first time an ACC team has played in the Holiday Bowl. Under an agreement announced in 2019, the ACC will supply a team for the game at least through 2025. The agreement was supposed to begin with the 2020 game, which was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. UCLA will playing in the game for the second time. The Bruins lost to Baylor, 49-26, in the 2012 game. UCLA (8-4) will enter the Holiday Bowl on a threegame winning streak. The Bruins will be making their first bowl appearance since 2017 when they lost to Kansas State, 35-17, in the Cactus Bowl. North Carolina State (9-3) has won four of its last five games. The Wolfpack were 18th in The Associated Press poll released Sunday, three spots higher than the previous week. UCLA is unranked. The game will be played at Petco Park under

an amendment to a joint agreement with the San Diego Padres approved by the City Council in July, overturning a previous ban on football at the downtown baseball stadium. The Padres announced a partnership with the San Diego Bowl Game Association in July allowing the Holiday Bowl to be played at Petco Park for a minimum of the next five years, beginning this year, dependent on City Council approval. The sale of SDCCU Stadium — where the Holiday Bowl had been played since its inaugural edition in 1978 through 2019 — to San Diego State University in 2020, and its demolition to make way for a west campus and Aztec Stadium, left the bowl game without a home. SDSU’S NEW HOME NAMED SNAPDRAGON STADIUM REGION — San Diego State University’s new athletic facility at SDSU Mission Valley will be known as Snapdragon Stadium as part of a long-term agreement with San Diego-based Qualcomm Technologies, it was announced Dec. 6. The naming agreement will head to the California State University Board of Trustees for formal approval. “Qualcomm is well-recognized and respected not

only here in San Diego, but globally,” said SDSU President Adela de la Torre. “Our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies represents a shared vision for a fully smart stadium — the cornerstone to what will be a one-of-a-kind smart campus — which will enrich, educate, and empower those we serve here locally and around the world.” Snapdragon is Qualcomm’s mobile platform brand. The naming rights have been structured as a 15-year, $3 million per year agreement. The 35,000-seat stadium — previously known as Aztec Stadium — and SDSU’s 132-acre Mission Valley campus have been in the works since San Diego voters approved Measure G in November 2018. The SDCCU Stadium was demolished last year and the Aztecs have played “home” games at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson. Snapdragon Stadium is on schedule to be completed by Sept. 3, 2022, when the Aztec football team is scheduled to play the University of Arizona Wildcats in the season home opener. Season tickets for the 2022 San Diego State football season in the new stadium will go on sale to the general public in January.

CARLSBAD RESIDENT WINS FIRST RACE AS US CITIZEN By City News Service

CARLSBAD — Carlsbad resident Kaillie Humphries won the Women’s Monobob World Series race in Altenberg, Germany on Dec. 4, two days after being sworn in as an American citizen in Los Angeles. Humphries won Olympic gold medals for her native Canada in the twowoman bobsled in 2010 and 2014 and a bronze in the event in 2018. She switched to representing the U.S. in 2019 because of abuse and harassment she claims she faced from the Canadian bobsled federation. Humphries became eligible to compete for the U.S. in World Cup and world championship events as a

green card holder following her marriage in 2019 to Travis Armbruster, a former U.S. men’s bobsledder. However, to compete in the Olympics for the U.S., she had to have an American passport, which are limited to U.S. citizens. The coronavirus pandemic presented challenges to Humphries’ attempt to become a citizen, including impacting required in-person meeting dates. The 36-year-old Humphries completed her meeting and swearing-in ceremony Dec. 2, after flying to California the day before from Germany, where she was preparing for SaturTURN TO CITIZEN ON A15

egendary major league baseball star Dick Allen is not in the Hall of the Fame. And that’s an injustice. Allen, the “Wampum Walloper,” long ago captured the hearts and minds of a generation of Philadelphia Phillies fans. As an 11-year-old, I remember thinking it was so cool a professional baseball player grew up just five minutes away from my hometown of Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. In high school, Allen was nicknamed “Sleepy” because he always looked tired. But Allen, along with his brothers Hank and Ronnie, led their high school to three consecutive state basketball championships. Everybody back home rooted for Allen. In 1964, Allen, a third baseman for the Phillies, won the National League Rookie of the Year award. After that, he became an instant folk hero in the City of Brotherly Love — carrying a massive 40-ounce bat to the plate, taking aggressive swings and launching majestic home runs into the night. Allen played 15 years in the MLB and his career stats were Hall of Fame-worthy — then and now. The Walloper, a seven-time All Star, hit for a career average of .292 with 351 HRs and 1,119 RBI. With the Chicago

inside

information felix taverna White Sox in 1972, Allen was named MVP after leading the American League in home runs and RBI. Hall of Fame pitcher and teammate Rich “Goose” Gossage said he’s never seen a player have a year like Allen had in ’72. “Every time we needed a hit, Allen delivered,” Gossage said. Willie Mays said Allen hit a ball harder than a n y o n e he’d ever seen. AlALLEN len cleared the grandstands and scoreboard at Philly’s Connie Mack Stadium several times. Only three players in baseball history have hit 10 walk-off home runs and seven inside-the-park home runs — Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx and Allen — and he is one of two players in baseball history to hit two inside-the-park homers in the same game. Allen’s .534 career slugging percentage ranks him 45th all-time, ahead of such Hall of Famers as Wil-

lie Stargell (54th), Willie McCovey (81st) and Harmon Killebrew (93rd). From 1964 to ’74, Allen posted a 68.5 in offensive wins above replacement, or WAR, which sums up a player’s total offensive contributions to a team. By comparison, Tony Gwynn’s offensive WAR was 67.2 over 20 seasons. In 2014, Allen appeared for the first time as a candidate on the Golden Days Era ballot for consideration into the Hall of Fame class of 2015. Allen was told by phone to be ready to fly to San Diego for the announcement. But “Crash Helmet” finished ONE VOTE SHORT of the 12 votes needed for induction. A second phone call never came. Allen died on Dec. 7, 2020, at his home in Wampum. He was 78 years old. Just this week, Allen again finished one vote shy of entering baseball’s highest fraternity. That’s just plain wrong. MLB and the Hall of Fame voters had a chance to get it right this month, but they blew it. Allen worked his way up from a little farm town in Western Pennsylvania to big league MVP. The “Wampum Walloper,” deserves a resting place in Cooperstown. See you on the radio, Saturdays at 9 a.m. on AM 1090, The Mightier 1090.

Kentera, crew set sail ‘Lucky’ & good: Dons march on for Army-Navy Game By Bill Slane

sports talk jay paris

ohn Kentera is no stranger to taking calls but he never expected this one. “This came out of nowhere,” Kentera said. “It’s the culmination of a lifelong dream.” The “John Kentera Show” on San Diego’s 97.3 The Fan is headed to the Army-Navy Game festivities. The day before Saturday’s 122nd meeting between these teams, Kentera and co-host Braden Surprenant’s segment will hail from the USS Intrepid, the retired aircraft carrier nestled along Manhattan. The following day the tandem will attend the game and all the goosebump moments this event never fails to deliver. Each roster includes two home-grown players in Navy punter Duke Pa’ane (Carlsbad) and Army offensive lineman Chris Hunter (Oceanside). “This was a game I always wanted to go as a kid,” said “Coach” Kentera, a longtime Solana Beach resident. “It was because I always had a tremendous respect for the discipline and sacrifice of these great athletes.” Kentera’s home station is among those worldwide that is affiliated with Navy’s broadcast football network. That evidently meant something to USSA, the firm sponsoring the trip, when it looked around at the applicants and went eeny, meeny, miny, moe. “To be selected is pretty special,” Kentera said. That has Kentera fine-tuning his Army-Navy notes in anticipation of Friday’s broadcast. Although Kentera is a sports history buff and already can recite the legacy of Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside and everything in between. “Once upon a time Army won three consecutive national championships in the 1940s,” Kentera said. “Navy’s had a nice

day’s race. “I’m more emotional than I thought I would be,” Humphries said Dec. 2. “Even though you believe in your application and you know it meets the requirements, you don’t know. “When she came back in and said, ‘Yes, I’m approving your application for citizenship,’ then it was real. It was a long journey, this has been a team effort

run, although this year it is struggling.” Kentera and Surprenant will be challenged to pull off their three-hour show, which will require more than a three-hour cruise. “We leave Thursday at 8 a.m. to Washington DC then to New York and check in for dinner,” said Surprenant, who also coaches football at Cathedral Catholic High School. “After Friday’s breakfast they take us to USS Intrepid’s radio row, we do the show and then back to the hotel. On Saturday it’s up early to MetLife to watch the Army, Navy entrance, the fly-over, the game and back home on Sunday.” Saturday’s patriotic extravaganza is showcased to KENTERA a grateful nation. It’s the weekend’s lone major college football game because it always means much more than four quarters of football. “My grandfather and uncle served in Vietnam,” said Surprenant, who lives in Scripps Ranch. “To be able to go to this game is a bucket-list item.” Navy (3-8) has its check points in trying to slow Army (8-3). The Black Knights have defeated the Midshipmen in four of their last four matchups, which has Navy pointing out that they lead the overall series, 61-53-7. Someone mentioned to Kentera that he owed his brother, Bill Sullivan, a call. They made a vow to attend an Army-Navy game when kids, and no kidding, Bill is staying put. “We never got around to going,” Kentera said. “Now we really have to do it together.” Bridging differences through sports helps give significance to Saturday’s spectacle. It’s a football rivalry built around admiration for the opponent, when actually all the players cheer for the same team: USA. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com and follow him @jparis_sports and feels amazing to have the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” Humphries returned to Germany on Dec. 2 to compete in the race to help her bid to be part of the U.S. team for the 2022 Beijing Games, where women’s monobob will be an Olympic event for the first time. Humphries won the inaugural women’s monobob world championship Feb. 14, increasing her career total to a record five world championships.

COSTA MESA — Good luck tackling Lucky Sutton. Cathedral Catholic’s senior running back was unstoppable Friday night at Orange Coast College as his seven touchdowns led the Dons over the Orange Lutheran Lancers in the Division 1-AA CIF Regional Final. In the highest scoring game in the history of Cathedral Catholic football, the Dons advanced to the state championship with a 71-62 victory. Sutton carried the ball 27 times and totaled 431 yards on the ground and even added a receiving touchdown to cap off his night. With the game tied at 27 at halftime, the Lancers appeared to be in a good position limiting the damage done by the recent Silver Pigskin Award winner. But Sutton ripped off touchdown carries of 63, 75 and 74 yards on consecutive touches in the second half. Dons head coach Sean Doyle believes his senior ball carrier, who has yet to commit to a school to play college football, is underrated. “He’s a Pac-12 kid in my opinion, but what do I know?” Doyle said. Sutton is not currently being recruited by any school from the major conferences in college football. The Dons struggled to stop the passing attack of the Lancers in the second half. Going into the fourth quarter, the Dons led 43-41. But the defense made a piv-

otal stop that allowed their offense to pull away for the win. The victory sends Cathedral Catholic to the Division 1-AA state championship game against the Folsom High School Bulldogs on Friday night. Cathedral also played Folsom for a state title in 2018, with the Bulldogs winning 21-14 in overtime. At the time there was some controversy: On fourth

down following Folsom’s opening drive touchdown in overtime, then-Dons quarterback DJ Ralph lofted a pass into the end zone to receiver Zion Sorani, who appeared to some to come down with the catch. However, the play was ultimately ruled incomplete, giving Folsom the state title. In its regional game this year, Folsom edged out the De La Salle Spartans 28-27. De La Salle scored

late in the game and had a chance to tie and send the game into overtime but opted to go for the victory with a two-point conversion. Folsom held strong, denying the two-point attempt and sending the Bulldogs to a state championship rematch with Cathedral Catholic. The game will take place this Friday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” — Irish proverb

The problem with drinking and driving is the MOURNING after.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that every day, about 28 people in the US die in drunk-driving crashes that's one person every 52 minutes! The decision to not drink and drive or to be a designated driver can help save your life AND the lives of others. We’ve all heard, “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.” Since we think of you as our friends and neighbors, we’d like to remind you that a designated driver will help you be around to celebrate for many more years...not just this year’s holiday season!

The undersigned or its predecessor caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale

date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 094709-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction.

If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www. clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 094709-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Let Big John and his staff make your holidays JOYFUL and STRESS FREE!

John & the Tip Top staff wish you the

Warmest, Peaceful & Merriest Christmas this Holiday Season! John says, “No one can match Tip Top’s sincerity, quality, service or prices! During these challenging times, we are fully prepared, like no other meat market and delicatessen, for the upcoming holiday season and will make the best experience for our customers, meeting all their requests and expectations.” He went on to say, “For all these years, I have been a servant to my customers and the community and have enjoyed offering the best quality products for the best prices, all for the love of serving you!” He added, “I have had the opportunity, through the free enterprise system, to gain the best training and offer my expertise to the community, and for 54 years, I have enjoyed

being your butcher, supplier and servant celebrating homestyle family meals and more.” Unforeseen events over the past two years have led to shortages and unbelievable events most thought would never happen in the United States. So, Tip Top’s team has been preparing through all of these challenges and has risen to the occasion. They are prepared to feature their beef, poultry, pork, veal, lamb, and game meat at the highest quality to meet the demand for the holiday season at the most competitive prices in the industry. John says, “You can name your requests and we have everything available to make your holiday season perfect and

memorable!” Although wholesale prices and supplies have been controlled by the industry, Tip Top’s colleagues and other markets have also faced the same supply issues. However, the team at Tip Top Meats has secured a supply line of USDA Prime and Choice Beef with the quality and variety that no other markets can compete with. You will see for yourself. If you shop for price or if you shop for quality, come to Tip Top Meats as they combine the two and give you the best of both worlds, plus the best service. Nothing is overpriced at Tip Top Meats! “All of my colleagues at Tip Top Meats are here to serve you

now through the New Year and are committed to taking great care of you when you come in,” John said. “We buy the best and sell the best, so you can come here with confidence that you will find what you need at a price you can afford! We have everything available, from breakfast to dinner and from hamburger to the finest prime rib and filets!” John continued, “I am humbled and honored to be your lifelong servant and bring the best food to Carlsbad and North County!” Tip Top Meats is open Christmas Week from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., on Christmas Eve from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Christmas Day, Tip Top Meats will be closed, reopening for breakfast at 7 a.m. on the day after Christmas.

Carlsbad teen musician back for marathon

small talk jean gillette

By Staff

CARLSBAD — If her music inspired you to run that last mile, relax. Local musician Amelie Simpson will be returning to perform at the 2022 Carlsbad Marathon. The 17-year-old singer and guitarist has been playing her mix of rock and pop songs at the local run since 2018. “I was disappointed last year’s race was canceled because of COV I D, but I'm re a l ly happy to have the chance to play again this year. SIMPSON It’s one of my favorite events,” Simpson said. The 2022 Carlsbad Marathon will take place on Jan.16. The scenic race also includes a half-marathon and a 5K. Simpson made her musical debut at the Pacific Rim Elementary School talent show as a fifth-grader in 2015. Since then, she has performed at venues like the House of Blues, San Diego County Fair, and Encinitas Street Fair. The talented teen currently plays monthly shows at Seaport Village and One Paseo. Simpson has also appeared on the cover of North County Kids Magazine, and San Diego’s ALT 94.9 featured her music during their quarantine talent show. In 2020, Simpson was recognized as one of San Diego County’s 25 Most Outstanding Teens for her musical accomplishments and community service efforts. She serves on the Youth Leadership Council for the Mitchell Thorp Foundation, a North County nonprofit that supports families with children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Next year, she plans on attending college to study business and music. Learn more about Simpson’s music at ameliesimpson.com. Event and registration information can be found at inmotionevents.com.

Library mural ode to Escondido By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO — A mural commissioned by the Escondido Public Library Foundation back in May has been completed by local artist Julia Anthony. The massive work of art can be viewed on the west exterior wall of the Kalmia Street Library building. The final image depicts a young girl reading on the grass, with the rolling hills and vineyards of Escondido laid out behind her. She is surrounded by flora and fauna that are native to Escondido, and to her right, is an image of the historic Escondido Library that dates back to the 1890s. The foundation titled the mural “Escondido’s Vision,” as it aims to highlight the unique beauty and attributes of the City of Escondido. “It’s about embracing the beauty that makes Escondido what it is,” Anthony said. “But also, to me, the main focus of the mural is actually the girl reading, and to me personally the mural is about knowledge is power,” Anthony said. “If I could send a message to the community, it would be that knowledge is power and we

gain our knowledge from reading, hence why the library is such an important feature in any city, but especially in Escondido.” The recently completed mural is very colorful and vibrant, as Anthony was hoping for from the start. “The community’s response has just been won-

derful. There’s so many people, especially this past weekend, who would actually pull in with their cars and stop to talk to me and thank me for creating something so beautiful for the community. That’s always really rewarding when you’re creating something and it actually makes an

impact,” Anthony said. Anthony, who had previously lived in Escondido for 30 years, said she took the project on because it had a personal connection for her. She also had some help from a few local artists who volunteered their time to assist Anthony. When the mural was first commissioned 6 months ago, two designs were up for consideration, and Escondido residents were able to share their input. In a poll that was active from May 26 to June 7, community members could express their opinions on which of the two designs they want to see at the library. Jack Anderson, the president of the Escondido Library Foundation, said that the mural will serve as a landmark for the library and for the City of Escondido. Anthony also previously created the Wild Beauty of the Savannahs mural in the Escondido Library’s children’s area in May 2010, as well as a fresh and salt water ocean mural at Oceanside Public Library in April 2011.

am vindicated. I am not alone. A recent survey result said that the holiday chore people hate the most is wrapping presents. Just hearing that was the best Christmas gift I could get. I have been known to snort derisively at survey results, being very skeptical about how many people really were asked and where, and who — unless, of course, I agree with the results. This one has my full support. I have been the joke of our family for decades because of my slap-dash method of gift-wrapping. I only use tissue wrapping paper and go heavy on the tape, in every direction. My corners are not neatly folded, my ribbon ends are not even. The best I can do is keep it color coordinated. I think I may be lacking in fine motor skills. I know I am lacking in patience, and suspect that is the real issue. Wrapping gifts does not bring out the artist in me. It is too screamingly time consuming during a season when time is precious. I also chafe at the fact that a gorgeously wrapped gift gets 10 seconds of admiration, followed by complete destruction. And, of course, I have always been the one who wraps the majority of the gifts. My husband apparently hates wrapping even more than I do. My solution is to spread the gifts, paper, tape, ribbon, scissors and tags all across my counterpane and then turn on a holiday baking show. I am reasonably distracted from the foldand-cut, fold-and tape,

San Diego Habitat for Humanity appoints new CEO By City News Service

REGION — The San Diego Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors on Dec. 1 appointed Kwofi Fafa Reed as its next CEO, four months after Lori Holt Pfeiler resigned from the position to become CEO of the Building Industry Association of San Diego. Reed most recently served as manager of programs and operations for the national housing team of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation. “We could not be more pleased,” said Andrea Petray, president of the board

of directors. “Kwofi brings big ideas and a wealth of experience in designing innovative affordable homeownership strategies, nonprofit organizational development, and in financing of affordable housing, economic development, and community projects. “His skill set and outside-the-box vision will serve Habitat well as we strive to increase Habitat’s impact in our community,” she added. Reed is a graduate of Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, holds a law degree from Georgetown

University and is a member of the California bar. “Housing is a critical issue in San Diego County, and one that I am passionate about,” he said. “Providing affordable homeownership opportunities is especially challenging. I am looking forward to working alongside the leadership and staff who perform tirelessly on behalf of the families Habitat is privileged to serve.” Reed took over on Dec. 6, overseeing all operations of the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, which recently built

The two Encinitas homes were the subject of a recent Coast News story. Although the homes were completed in August, neither of the families slated to occupy the homes had moved in as of mid-November. A city spokeswoman said the families were still expected to move in to the homes, both in Leucadia.

Online summit for teens set as fentanyl deaths spike By City News Service

SURFING asks little of surfers, but it could still use your help, for example, picking up plastic on the beach.

O

ther than waves, all you need to surf is some sort of bathing suit, a bar of wax and, of course, a surfboard. Surfing is, no doubt, the most fun activity possible for the least amount of money. Much like an overly indulgent parent, it gives everything and asks nothing in return. It’s no wonder then that we so often become spoiled and feel entitled to the best of everything the ocean can serve up. A spoiled child is one thing, but seeing a fully grown surfer throw a tantrum whenever they are faced with less than uncrowded perfection is shameful. I learned the lesson of gratitude at an advanced

The man had been cheated by life through disease or war, but all he could see ahead of him was a beautiful day. I sat down in the sand as the crowd in the lineup disappeared, and he and the child I presume was his son, made their way a few feet from shore to the whitewater, catching tiny waves, laughing and smiling in the same ocean I felt I had demanded more from. While surfing asks nothing, it can, nonetheless, use our help. Surfers travel the world, return home, brag about what we received, with not a word about what we gave. Each of us can give something back, even if it’s only to clean up after the slob who left the wrappings of our plastic society on the beach. Complaining that it’s not our mess is like sitting in a bathtub with

your younger brother. If he pees in the tub, it quickly becomes your problem. (I have no suggestion on fixing that one.) Beyond the responsibility to clean up the beach, it is the duty of each of us to keep our own inorganic waste at a minimum. Drive less, use as little plastic as possible, recycle and reuse everything. And please keep in mind that the environment is not limited to land, sea and sky — it involves everything on earth, including our attitudes and the ugly words I have been guilty of contaminating the earth with. Whenever I have a bad day surfing (there should not be such a thing), I remember the man using his one leg to get out in the water to share the time of his life with his son. I hope to someday be as good as surfer as he is.

Leaving the water after an unsatisfying session where a crowd of overly amped loggers boxed me in and kept me from catching anything, I wandered home, sulking, head down.

REGION — An online summit will be held next week to address the dangers of fentanyl for local middle and high school students, following an uptick in fentanyl-related overdose deaths across San Diego County. Schools countywide are invited to take part in the summit, which will feature testimonials from overdose survivors and a keynote speech from former NBA player Chris Herren, who struggled with an opioid addiction for much of his career. The event, dubbed SDNeeds2Know, is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Dec. 16 and is being organized by the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, the San Diego County Office of Education, and county Board of Supervisors Chairman Nathan Fletcher, among others. Officials say San Diego County fentanyl-related deaths are increasing exponentially, with nearly 700 such deaths this year and some victims as young as 16 years old. “Over the past few years in San Diego County, the number of fentanyl deaths, especially among young people, has more than quadrupled,” District Attorney Summer Stephan

said. “This is why we planned this countywide summit focused on middle and high school students, who are asked to log on to this summit from whatever class they’re in for an hour packed with life-saving information.” Part of the summit will address the pervasiveness of fentanyl-laced street drugs. “San Diego needs to know that the pills or powder currently sold on the streets, likely contain fentanyl,” Stephan said. “Literally one pill can kill and has killed in every neighborhood of our county.” Organizers asked parents, who are encouraged to attend, to contact schools to ask whether their child’s classroom is participating in the summit. “It’s our job as educators to make sure that students are made aware of the dangers that opioids and other drugs present and this summit is an opportunity to hear from individuals who have experienced peril at the hands of these powerful drugs,” County Superintendent of Schools Paul Gothold said “To curb these alarming trends, we must continue to create school environments that are safe and welcoming to all students.”

Foundation to award grants to boost Escondido workforce By Tigist Layne

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Community Foundation, an affiliate of the San Diego Foundation, is awarding grants to organizations that provide workforce development resources needed for economic growth in Escondido. In the 2022-2023 grant cycle, the foundation will award funding to programs that provide resources for job readiness, job shadowing, internships, vocational education, advancement opportunities and technology instruction. Local organizations can submit a letter of intent for projects in Escondido. The funding range is $15,000 to $35,000 for each group selected. According to Trudy Armstrong, director of regional outreach, seven to eight organizations will be awarded. “We do annual grant making that we grant out once a year that has a specific focus, and this year it’s workforce development,” Armstrong said. “We want to increase the skillsets of individuals to lift people up to better economic conditions. It can be entry level for students that are entering internships and that sort of thing, but we are hoping to, as we see people leaving the workforce, we want to help people get a new set of skillsets to advance

in their careers “We’re also looking for people that will provide services that overcome workforce barriers, because we found, especially during the pandemic, that childcare issues or transportation issues can prevent someone from moving up in their career.” Once organizations admit a letter of intent, the first step in the two-step application process, the foundation will evaluate their project proposal and determine which projects will be the most successful and make the most impact in the Escondido community. These projects should be achievable within a 12-month time frame, and have prospects for longterm sustainability. “We want to support and uplift Escondido and we are seeing a need to help people increase their workforce skills,” Armstrong said. “We talk to leaders in the community and organizations like the Chamber, the City of Escondido and other nonprofits to see what everyone sees as the emerging need for that year. “Behavioral health and mental health was last year after the pandemic, and now they want to move it forward to helping people really reenter the workforce at a higher level.” The deadline for applications is Jan. 24, 2022.

Rejected San Marcos vendor ordinance may not return By Tigist Layne

SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council almost approved a strict set of regulations for street vendors back in October but tabled the issue after a council member changed her vote. Today, it remains unclear when the council will revisit the issue, if at all. The controversial ordinance, which sets regulations for sidewalk vendors and permit fees, is just one example of many efforts by local governments across California to regulate an industry that hits close to home for many residents. The council on Oct. 12 reversed an earlier decision approving restrictions on street vendors and talked about workshopping the issue after facing backlash from some San Marcos residents. Deputy Mayor Sharon Jenkins changed her vote at the second reading of the ordinance after hearing public comments from dozens of enraged residents and community services organizations. The other no votes came from councilmembers Maria Nuñez and Randy Walton. Walton, who was adamantly against the ordinance from the start, told The Coast News that a workshop has not been scheduled, even though Jenkins had requested that the council workshop the issue as soon as possible. However, Tess Sangster, economic development director for the City of San Marcos, said the council didn’t actually vote on a motion to hold a workshop. The proposed regulations covered licenses and permits, operating conditions, prohibited activities, hours of operation and

Former SDUHSD substitute teacher pleads not guilty to child porn charge By City News Service

VISTA — A former San Diego-area substitute teacher and Boy Scouts instructor accused of having thousands of images and videos of child pornography on his computer pleaded not guilty Dec. 7 to a possession of child porn charge. Andrew Jared Primes, 31, was arrested in July following a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding Primes, who worked for the Poway Unified and San Dieguito Union High School districts, and served as an instructor for the Boys Scouts of America Fiesta Island Summer Camp. According to the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the NCMEC report indicated Primes “was responsible for possessing and transmitting several thousand images containing child-abuse sexual imagery.” At his arraignment, Deputy District Attorney Marnie Layon alleged that a law enforcement search

of Primes’ computer turned up 4,250 images and more than 3,800 videos. Primes remains out of custody on $25,000 bail and entered his pleas virtually at Tuesday’s hearing at the Vista courthouse. Superior Court Judge David Berry imposed several conditions while Primes is out on bail, including that he not be in the presence of minors without another adult nearby and that he can’t be in any place where the primary purpose of the location is the education or recreation of children. Defense attorney Michael Fremont objected to some of the out-of- custody conditions that he felt were overbroad and pushed back on assertions in the law enforcement press release announcing Primes’ arrest, which called for potential victims to contact police. Fremont said there has been no indication any victims have come forward with claims against his client, nor evidence he transmitted or distributed any content.

and more, all argued that the ordinance would be detrimental to immigrant and minority communities, as well as low-income families. “This ordinance would disproportionately impact immigrants and People of Color and further penalize individuals for being

low income,” said Patricia Mondragon from Alliance San Diego. “Sidewalk vending is a culturally significant means of income for immigrant families and an accessible entry into entrepreneurship for low-income individuals.” Many speakers also argued that the ordinance

was too strict, citing restrictions on how far away (in feet) vendors must be from the curb, from any buildings, from other vendors, from bus stops, from fire hydrants, from public restrooms, from major intersections, from a public trash can, etc. City Manager Jack

Griffin said that staff recommended the ordinance after the November 2020 election cycle where the city saw multiple politically-motivated vendors pop up that prompted a lot of complaints citywide. “We would have liked, last year when those popped up, because they came out of nowhere, to have had a little bit more ability to be more organized and managed about where they set up and how they set up,” Griffin said. “It’s more of a recent history issue, but I think it would be naïve to not see that again in the future.” “I don’t think there’s anything in here that any of those vendors would have found to be so onerous that they wouldn’t set up shop in San Marcos, and I think our fee structure is far less than most other cities that have attempted to regulate that,” Griffin added. A similar situation occurred in the City of San Diego back in 2019, when former Mayor Kevin Faulconer proposed a vendor ordinance to keep vendors out of tourist-heavy areas. The city immediately saw backlash from street vendors and residents who argued that the ordinance would disproportionately impact immigrants and people of color. Cities like Oceanside, Coronado and National City already have vendor regulations in place. The City of San Diego still does not but is expected to consider regulations, once again, as early as next week. In Santa Barbara, street vendors may soon be faced with tighter rules as city officials will consider enforcing stricter regulations in the coming weeks.

Odd Files Crème de la Weird Some news items just catapult themselves to the lead story position. On a Delta airlines flight in November from Syracuse, New York, to Atlanta, the woman sitting in 13A allegedly tried to breastfeed her hairless cat, much to the cat’s (and other passengers’) distress. Flight attendants repeatedly asked the woman to return the yowling cat to its kennel, the New York Post reported, but she refused. “Her shirt was up and she was trying to get the cat to latch ... and the cat was screaming for its life,” said Ainsley Elizabeth, a flight attendant who was on board during the incident. Finally, a message was sent through the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) alerting the ground crew in Atlanta that they would need a Red Coat team member to apprehend the woman at the gate. (Red Coats are specially trained to handle customer service issues, which now include cat-breastfeeding.) It’s unclear what happened to the woman or her cat after the flight landed.

The real Derek is lying down next to me; other Derek sits right up out of him. It startled me,” she said, according to Newsweek. No doubt! Gilbert asked the “critter” who he was, “Because he clearly wanted to have sexual relations.” Along with claiming to be Derek, the creature said he was Xerxes, but Gilbert wasn’t having it. “I reached up, grabbed his face and I said, ‘You are a liar, and Jesus is real.’ And I pulled that face off, and beneath it was a reptile.” One Twitter user responded, “This is a story a 7-year-old tells when you ask them why they’re late for something.” [Newsweek, 11/24/2021] ‘Educational’ Toy Ania Tanner, a grandmother from Ontario, Canada, found a cute singing and dancing cactus on the Walmart website and purchased it for her granddaughter, CTV News reported. The animated $26 toy sings in three languages: English, Spanish and Polish. But when Tanner, who is Polish, listened to the Polish lyrics, she was shocked: “This toy uses swear words and talking about cocaine use. This is not what I ordered for my granddaughter. I was in shock. I thought, what is this, some kind of joke?” The Polish song is by rapper Cypis, who didn’t give permission for the use of his song by the Chinese manufacturer of the item. For its part, Walmart said the toy is sold by a third-party vendor and will be removed while they investigate. [CTV News, 11/23/2021]

Officers responding to the crash found the keys still in the car, along with “a little bit of blood.” Wheeler was reported missing after not showing up for work for two days, but it was almost two weeks before anyone saw him again. On Nov. 28, someone called police to do a welfare check at Wheeler’s home and found him there, alert and conscious. He was taken to a hospital, where he explained that he had walked away from the accident but went back to find his phone, then was lost in the woods for nearly two weeks before finding his way home. Police said an investigation is ongoing. [News and Observer, 11/29/2021]

Escondido salutes legend ‘Lefty’ Mitchell By Staff

ESCONDIDO — In the eighth 2021 Escondido Legend biography, the Escondido History Center introduces Lloyd “Lefty” Mitchell. The Center will present a $1,000 honorarium, in their name, to an outstanding senior from a high school in Escondido. Lloyd “Lefty” Mitchell, during his 21 years of community service as chief of police and city manager, established the foundation of Escondido today and now is 2021 Escondido Legend. Lloyd McIntyre Mitchell was born in Oakley, Utah Jan. 10, 1907. He was dubbed “lefty” for his left-hand pitching in high school and at the University of Idaho where he received a degree in chemical engineering. After receiving additional training in electrical engineering in the early days of radio in Kansas City, MO, he and his wife, Dottie, made the big move to California in 1934. Prior to the Second World War, Lefty worked for the Mutual Broadcast System in both San Diego and Los Angeles. During the war, he worked for Raytheon on board U. S. Naval ships, installing radar. After, he was able to rejoin his family on the ranch in his beloved Escondido. In 1946, Lefty joined the Escondido Police Department

LLOYD ‘LEFTY’ MITCHELL

as a radio repairman. After a scandal in the police department, Mitchell was asked to take over the position of chief of police. During his tenure, the department became modernized and departmentalized. Known as a proven administrator and able organizer, Lefty established training programs, a merit system for advancement, formed the Mounted Police

Posse and the Motorcycle Drill Team. It was during his time as chief of police that he realized the need for an organization that provided healthy outlets for boys in Escondido. Out of this need, Lefty and other leaders of the community started the Escondido Boys Club (now known as the Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego). Lloyd Mitchell, with

his proven administrative record, was appointed city manager in January 1956. Escondido benefited from his vision and guidance to keep pace with the population growth that was to follow. During his 12 years as city manager, Lefty established the city’s public works, accounting, personnel and recreation departments. He oversaw the purchase of land for Kit Carson Park and planned the city’s sewer treatment plant. During a period of drought in the late 1950s and 1960s, Lefty was aware that current climate conditions did not represent the frequent flooding which regularly occurred along the Escondido River, but he also knew that a planned flood control system was needed to ensure the city’s growth. Although controversial, Lefty helped plan and push for a successful channel project, which was amusingly dubbed “Mitch’s Ditch,” to pave the way for our city’s growth. Lloyd “Lefty” Mitchell, with a career and life of community service had a Boys and Girls Club campus named for him as well as a conference room in the current Escondido City Hall. He was truly a “community treasure” and is now honored as a 2021 Escondido Legend.

Highway Patrol. While he was trying to help the driver — whose SUV was stalled in traffic lanes with its lights off — and his companion get safely off the roadway, a southbound box truck smashed into the crashed vehicle and hit Lucio. The serviceman died at the scene. The driver of the SUV and the woman who had been riding in it were hospitalized for treatment of serious injuries, the CHP reported. No other injuries were reported. Lucio, a native of Smithville, Tennessee, was a military policeman.

Vista drama teacher continues her father’s legacy  Daughter of longtime instructor leads RBV program By Samantha Nelson

VISTA — Mackenzie Scott literally grew up in Rancho Buena Vista High School’s theater. As a three-year-old, she painted shapes in the corner while her father, Mark Scott, directed plays and musicals. Several years later, Mackenzie graduated from the same performing arts program. Today, Mackenzie, 23, has returned to Rancho Buena Vista to carry on her father’s 30-year legacy as the school’s drama teacher. Mark Scott started teaching drama at the Vista high school in 1989. Over three decades, Mark built up the program to be one of the best in the state, demonstrating that even the smallest school can produce an award-winning show. “What was so funny was that over the years as we started going to these competitions, we were winning quite a bit against all of these other kids who had extensive theater training,” Mark said. Mackenzie followed her father to rehearsals and performances, developing a deep love for theater at an early age. “I grew up on the

floor here, babysat by high schoolers,” Mackenzie said. “This is my second home.” Mackenzie’s respect for her father only grew over the years as she watched him leave an indelible impression at the school. After witnessing her father’s success, she wanted to impact others just like her

father had for countless students. “The way he communicated and received so much respect and love made me want to be respected,” Mackenzie said. “I want to be loved, and I want knowledge and to share the knowledge and to impart wisdom and love to those

• In 2008, PETA requested Ben & Jerry's use breastmilk instead of cow’s milk to make ice cream. This was unanimously rejected by Ben & Jerry’s and La Leche League International. • Sixty-five percent of test subjects had the urge to yawn after reading about yawning. • From 1746 until 1996, English law considered bagpipes not as a musical instrument, but a weapon of war, used to “instill courage in soldiers and put the fear

of God into the enemy.” • The kitchen dishwasher was invented by a politician’s socialite wife who was fed up with servants breaking her expensive dishes. • Author Roger Highfield's 1999 book “The Physics of Christmas: From the Aerodynamics of Reindeer to the Thermodynamics of Turkey” detailed a darker side to Rudolph's famously red nose — not alcoholism, but some kind of parasitic infection. • A tornado in Oklahoma once ripped a full motel off the ground. Its sign was later found in Arkansas. • Born in 1924, a horse called Lady Wonder was considered by many to be

psychic. Not only did she make predictions and answer questions for over 30 years and more than 150,000 people, she was credited with helping to solve several crimes. • Chilean poet Pablo Neruda always wrote in green ink, which for him was a color of hope and abundance. • LeBron James’ decision to leave Cleveland to join the Miami Heat was such a shocker that even Osama Bin Laden’s translator, who was being held at Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, wrote about it to his lawyers, declaring that “LeBron James is a very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland.”

who sometimes don’t always receive love.” Rancho Buena Vista’s theater program welcomes everyone regardless of their background, who they love or what they look like. “They came here because it was a safe place,” Mark said. “We often refer to the drama room as a

sanctuary — if you’re out amongst the quad dwellers and you feel threatened, if you need a Band-Aid or a dollar, you come in here.” Mark started a drama program at Madison Middle School and Mackenzie officially became her father’s student. For seven years through middle and

high school, Mackenzie and her fellow drama partners learned theater from Mark. After graduating from Rancho Buena Vista and her father’s drama program in 2016, Mackenzie went to study theater at Hofstra University in New York City. She had several opportunities lined up for her upon graduation until the COVID-19 pandemic struck. With the pandemic in full swing, Mackenzie packed up her things, rented a car and drove across the country back home. Mark retired the following year and the school’s drama program was under new leadership. At her father’s suggestion, in 2020, Mackenzie began working as a stage tech teacher at the school while taking online courses to earn her teaching credentials. During that time, she also worked as a student-teacher for early high school English. “I was doing homework along with my students who I was assigning and grading homework for,” Mackenzie said. Once completing her credential, she applied for the open drama teacher position there. She got the part. Just a few months in and Mackenzie has alTURN TO DRAMA ON B19

all is gone. I know because pumpkin spice is on the clearance rack. I’m feeling less and less motivated to heat up apple cider with a nip of brandy, and all of sudden everything is peppermint flavored. For my feelings on eggnog — it is gross — find a copy of last week’s Cheers! North County column. Which means I need to find a new seasonally appropriate cocktail to drink. In doing some research, I was confronted with the following question: What makes a drink a winter holiday cocktail and not just, say, a regular drink I could order in late May? The answer doesn’t pop up when you Google it. What does come up is a series of holiday cocktail lists from every food and drink blog on the planet. Want to know what Southern Living suggests you serve at your next holiday mixer? Look no further! Wonder what holiday cocktail Snoop Dogg claims as his own? You can find that easily. Yet, the parameters of the holiday cocktail remain evasive. I peruse the lists looking for commonalities. The word “zesty” gets thrown around, as does “creamy” and “frosty.” They are code words for the most common ingredients. Cranberries are popular, though not as popular as cinnamon sticks, dashes of allspice, or candy cane gar-

nishes. The occasional apple cider cocktail seems to have slipped into December despite clearly belonging back at Thanksgiving. It is, however, winter, and when I see the word “warmer,” my interest is piqued. It was a frigid 55 degrees when I went to get coffee this morning. I remind you that my upbringing was entirely in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin. I have experienced truly cold winters that inspired brother scuffles over the

better heating vent in the living room. But somehow the chill of the Pacific Ocean air flowing past me as I traversed North County just after dawn cut through my flannel coat and tore into the core of my humanly warmth. As I wrapped my hands around a molasses, housemade vanilla bean syrup and cinnamon latte from Camp Coffee in Oceanside, I let the steam soak up into my beard, and warm my cheeks, I was given a brief

glimpse into my future. I’ll save you the suspense. It was me a few hours later at happy hour pouring two fingers of coffee whiskey into a steaming mug of hot chocolate. That alone, wouldn’t make for a great column, but I also had an epiphany. Holiday cocktails become holiday cocktails when they are imbued with the spirit of the season. Sure a crumble of peppermint stick or a dash of cinnamon might make that martini glass pretty, but it

is the joy and love and care that the bartender or barista or Auntie Sharon infused that drink with that made it a holiday cocktail.

hen writing about Prisoner Wine Co., I find that it’s always worthwhile to remind and educate readers on how Prisoner gained notoriety in the wine world. This would take us back to Dave Phinney, initially pursuing a career as a lawyer until he discovered his passion for wine during his college summer years in Florence. In 1997, Phinney found himself at Robert Mondavi assisting with the harvest. One year later, he purchased small collections of zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, petite sirah, and charbono fruit that he masterfully developed into an unusual, luxury highend red blend called The Prisoner under his new Orin Swift wine label. Later Phinney sold the Prisoner brand first to Huneeus Family Wines who then sold the Prisoner label to Constellation Brands. Senior Editor Frank and I had a chance to get reacquainted with Prisoner wines at a recent Sal Ercolano Prisoner wine dinner at his West End Bar & Kitchen restaurant in Del Mar. Chris Miller, field sales manager for Constellation Brands, was on hand to narrate the dinner and provided a wealth of information on Prisoner wines. The wines were framed in a five-course dinner starting with Chef Noe mini bites, duck carpaccio, and an out-of-this-world Seafood Medley Lasagna with homemade noodles and a pink bechamel cream sauce with chunks of shrimp, salmon, and swordfish. Both Mangio and I told Ercolano the lasagna needs

to be added to the menu! The lasagna was paired with a pinot noir aged 16 months in 30% new French oak providing a subtle body for the seafood bechamel sauce. The "Unshackled" sauvignon blanc, which was served earlier with the mini bites, proved to be an excellent companion for the duck carpaccio too, with its crisp minerality and brightness. For the main course, guests were spoiled with veal osso buco in a red wine reduction along with polenta and root vegetables served with Prisoner’s new cabernet sauvignon varietal. The iconic "Prisoner Red Blend" was served with just a bit of the osso buco left. Both the cabernet sauvignon and red blend melded well with the veal. As always, attendees had a chance to purchase wine at great discounts. Great Dinner Sal, Chef Noe, and Chris. More details at theprisonerwinecompany. com.

A winter wonderland is created at Botanic Garden jano’s garden jano nightingale

R

ene van Rems is one of the most generous artistic floral designers I have met in years. Although he was waist deep in 10-foot arrangements that needed to be finished in less than an hour, he joyfully shared his trade secrets to produce some of the most creative displays I have seen in years. Drawing from natural elements that have been found locally or from Northern California, the finished display in the San Diego Botanic Garden Conservatory glitters with dashes of gold, twinkling lights and hundreds of pieces of natural plant material. Any visitor to the Botanic Wonderland will have their mind spinning with decorative ideas for their home, and meet volunteers who can answer DIY ques- FLORAL DESIGNER Rene van Rems, right, works with an assistant to create a magical structure created with natural materials from the San Diego Botanic Garden collection. Photo by Jano Nightingale tions. RENE SUPRISES ALL VISITORS Working with volunteers and staff, Rene shares his talent that lies not only in his decades of experience as a floral designer, but also in his deep understanding

of horticulture. “I had my first job at a florist when I was 13 years old in Amsterdam,” he said. “All of my classmates were participating in sports, but I was very happy to be working with flowers. From

then on, I was hooked!” Continuing his horticultural education in Aalsmeer, Holland, he was able to be a part of the largest flower market in the world. Years later, here in San Diego, he is one of the most

sought-after event designers and teachers, and dedicates a good portion of his time to creating the floral design elements of many events and exhibits at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas.

According to Ari Novy, president and CEO of the San Diego Botanic Garden, “We are thrilled to work again with world-renowned and local floral artist Rene van Rems. Rene’s holiday floral artistry, on display at

the Garden is an absolute delight for the holidays.” Demonstrating the versatility of plant material that is readily available in San Diego, Rene took me to the 10-foot tall agave display. “This Agave Americana, or Century Plant, comes from the Garden’s collection, and weighs over 300 pounds,” he said. “But any average gardener with a good eye can find these Century plant stems in many locations in North County, possibly your own backyard. My advice to anyone who loves to garden or to decorate their home for the holiday is to just get out there and look.” RENE’S DIY SUGGESTIONS Look in your yard and your neighbor’s yard for any element that has texture, color and form. The simplest and least expensive way to transform a dried flower such as sunflower or thistle is simply spray with gold or silver paint, extend with sticks and wrap in floral tape. Any of these flowers can be stuck into your wreath, floral foam or evergreen wreath. An ingenious method of creating a non-evergreen structure is to utilize a large metal tomato cage.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Make your holiday preparations one step at a time in order to avoid being overwhelmed and leaving things undone. That confusing family situation continues to work itself out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Ease this year’s holiday money pressures by letting your thrifty side guide you as you look for those perfect gifts that typically reflect your good taste and love of beauty. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’ll have a good handle on potential holiday problems if you delegate tasks to family members, friends or co-workers — most of whom will be more than happy to help out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Right now you are especially vulnerable to holiday scams that seek to take advantage of your generosity. Best advice: Check them out before you send out your checks.

But you need to confront a personal situation while you can still keep it from overwhelming everything else. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Tight financial matters ease a bit during this holiday season. But the sagacious Sagittarian is well-advised to keep a tight hold on the reins while shopping for gifts.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) The holidays will bring new friends and new opportunities. Meanwhile, be careful to use your energy wisely as you go about making holiday preparations. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) There’s good news coming from a most unlikely source. And it could turn out to be one of the best holiday gifts you have had in years. Remember to stay positive.

ready proven herself as a perfect fit. She completely reorganized the program’s costumes, props and other equipment, and carries on her father’s strong theater tradition. “She’s resurrected the program,” Mark said. “This

program was on life support.” Though her group is small and mostly consists of underclassmen, they are a passionate bunch and every one of them wants to be there. Even the drama boosters are thrilled about having Mackenzie Scott take over after her father. “Mackenzie is follow-

ing in her father’s footsteps,” said Marie Hayes, a drama booster member. “She’s doing a fabulous job, not just with the production aspects but also with her maturity, wisdom and care for the students.” For Mark, seeing his daughter take over the very same stage where he spent hours with students

rehearsing scenes and practicing songs is the ultimate legacy. “I enjoyed my time here and it just does my heart a great service to know that my daughter has now taken the reins of this horse that I so dearly loved,” Mark said. “She’s doing incredible work and I’m just really proud of her.”

cage is covered. “Be careful to secure the branches upside down, so they don’t bend off the structure,” he said. “Then, you have a surface that can be covered with your favorite ornaments or dried fruit and flowers. It will cost you less than purchasing a fresh tree, and you have made it yourself!” The designer suggests thinking about Christmas décor early in the fall season, when many summer annuals and perennials are going to seed. Simply dry them in a warm, sunny indoor room and store in paper bags until the holidays. When you are ready to display the dried materials, they can be finished with spray paint. “We all have potential decorations either in our yard, our neighbor’s yard or found alongside a quiet road. Keep your eyes open and you will be surprised what you will find,” suggests Rene as he held up a collection of golden sunflowers, glistening with gold paint. Eucalyptus pods in all stages of development, curly hickory branches and all varieties of pine cones are free for the asking and will give your decorations texture, form and color. To contact Rene for information on his floral services and classes, contact him at rene@renevanrems. com.

LOCAL CHRISTMAS TREES AND DECORATIONS If you have difficulty finding the variety of fir and pine branches for your home display, Maldonado Farms in Encinitas has a wide variety of swags and cut conifers to offer, as well as farm-grown Christmas trees. They are located at 556 Union Street, Encinitas. Weidners Gardens, at 695 Normandy Road in Encinita, offers 25 varieties of poinsettias and holiday gifts and décor. Briggs Tree farm at 1111 Poinsettia in Vista features small conifers that can be planted in the yard after the holiday. VISIT THE BOTANIC WONDERLAND To see the entire floral display that Rene and his volunteers created, visit the San Diego Botanic Garden for the Botanic Wonderland event. The Garden will be open Dec. 10-23 and Dec. 26-30 after 5:30 pm to view the display. Information and tickets can be found at www. sdbgarden.org or call (760) 436-3036. Happy decorating, and don’t forget to look for potential display material on the side of the road — just watch out for traffic! For further questions contact me at: janosgarden@ gmail.com.
