ENCINITAS — Despite winning her seat by more than 16 points in last year’s election, County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer is facing a recall initiated by local political action committee Undivided San Diego. The Escondido RANCHO Times-Advocate first reportSFNEWS ed news of the recall filing. Lawson-Remer represents District 3, which includes the coastal North County cities of Encinitas, Del Mar and Solana Beach, San Diego’s M i ra ma r neighborhood and extends LAWSON-REMER northeast to Escondido. The recall effort will need over 40,000 signatures by May 12 to force a recall election for the first-term supervisor’s seat. In a statement provided to The Coast News, Lawson-Remer said the organizers of the recall effort are political extremists. “Unfortunately, anti-vaccine radicals are now trying to hijack our local democracy by pushing a dangerous recall to overturn the 2020 election and impose their extreme views on all of us.

Is Oceanside Pier’s ramp too steep? Some think so By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — As the city studies potential improvements to Oceanside Pier, some regular visitors want to see changes made to a ramp connecting the historic landmark to a popular beachfront street below to improve pedestrian safety.

Encinitas to look into better safeguards for mature trees By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — A number of Encinitas residents have shared concerns over tree preservation in the face of increasing development, prompting the Encinitas City Council on Dec. 8 to direct city staff to get more creative with devel-
ment Element includes a stated goal that the city will “make every effort possible to preserve significant mature trees.” The goal continues to state that “mature trees shall not be removed or disturbed to provide public right-of-way improvements
THE CITY COUNCIL has directed city staff to work with developers to find alternatives to more typical roadway designs in an effort to protect mature trees. File photo
opers to better safeguard mature trees. The council unanimously supported the agenda item initiated by Councilman Tony Kranz. The city’s General Plan Resource Manage-
if such improvements can be deferred, redesigned, or eliminated.” However, there has not been a clear way of implementing the policy and the goal contradicts other city design standards.
“I think some of the time we prioritize some of the curb and gutter and street widening over the trees,” Kranz said. “I think that as a city council, we want to emphasize this particular general plan goal.” In 2017, both Blakespear and Kranz voted to approve an amendment to the city's Municipal Tree Ordinance (Chap. 15.02) to add protections “required to protect its urban forest and its Heritage Trees.” “The City will use best practices to protect existing trees from the impacts of development and maintenance projects,” the amendment reads. Additionally, the opening line under the chapter “Protection of Trees” states: “Every effort should be made to protect trees during construction.” However, it remains unclear what impact this new direction will have on existing projects, such as a housing development on Melba Road that is slated to remove several mature Torrey Pines trees. Resident Jennifer Hewitson spoke at the meeting about the importance of saving mature trees on Melba Road, not just for the community value, but also for the ecological ramifications. “Multiple species rely on this tree-covered open space for survival,
including threatened monarch butterflies staying through spring and summer,” Hewitson said. “We can’t talk about Melba specifically because that’s not agendized,” Mayor Catherine Blakespear said. “I think that there are projects like that one that would be implicated by this and we can ask for that to be bought back.” Blakespear asked staff to bring back an item on the Melba project to have a more in-depth conversation on the development. Roy Sapa’u, the city’s director of development services, said staff could
return in the future with a streamlined policy to meet the city’s stated goal of protecting mature trees. Until that time, city staff will provide the Planning Commission with options for projects requiring road improvements that could require the removal of trees. Only the City Council has the power to waive public road standards. “The issue of mature trees isn’t just about road improvements but there are also other policies related to the preservation of mature trees to the extent feasible,” Sapa’u said.
“Ultimately if the goal and the direction is to preserve mature trees, you’ll see projects coming before (the city council) with the option of either eliminating public road improvements or deferring public road improvements in order to preserve mature trees.” Blakespear acknowledged there will still be an inevitable conflict with the city’s other goals. “Our mobility goals at times will run into this,” Blakespear said. “You need some kind of dispute resolution when those goals run into each other.”

Style & the better word
By S.H. Chambers
stumbled over this sentence the other day. “The amount of people in need far exceeds the amount of government resources available to help them.” See the problem? “Amount” of people should be “number,” right? The rule is simple: For things that can be counted, use “number”; for those that can’t, use “amount.” So, the number of jokes, but the amount of laughter. The use of “the amount of people” has been spreading like crabgrass. Today, I put it in quotes, stuck it into Google, and got 293 million hits. Sure, “number of people” still got 540 million hits, but the gap is narrowing. Should this trend continue, we may soon reach the tipping point and have to retire the rule entirely. The old nag will have to be put out to pasture, to munch on crabgrass. So what? As with other such usage rules, this one describes a mere stylistic convention
that is somewhat arbitrary. After all, the meaning of the offending sentence is fundamentally the same whether “amount” or “number” is used. In the grand scheme of things, it is a matter of little importance. Most matters are. The voice of reason whispers, “Let it go.” Funny how that voice sounds so much like my wife’s. Still. It all starts with the individual. The person. Not the tribe. Not the party. Not the group. The rights, the responsibility, and the agency, all belong first to the person, to the one. Not to the many. So when we speak of people, we are not speaking of an undifferentiated mass. People are not a lump, not a gelatinous blob. People are distinct individuals, each entitled to respect and dignity. People can count, which means that they are sentient beings. And they themselves count. That is to say they matter, as human beings, regardless of their group affil-
iation or particular intersectional ribbon rack. They can also be counted, one by one, and sometimes even be counted upon, to stand up for themselves, and, sometimes, for others, or even for humanity. Looked at this way, to refer to a group of human beings as an amount is to objectify humanity. It is an insult. When there is a choice, then, our language should convey respect to people and be employed to reinforce their individuality. Here is a practice sentence: The number of people in need exceeds the amount of government resources available to help them at least in part because people have an endless appetite for free stuff. While the choice of a particular word is often merely a matter of style, style matters. Now, please get off my lawn. Scott Chambers is a cartoonist at The Coast News.
Does Carlsbad have a homeless problem?
hen was your last meal at restaurant in the Village? Stroll on the Rail Trail? Walk on the boardwalk? Shared bench with a homeless individual at the train platform? Some of us ordinary Carlsbad citizens did these things and witnessed homeless individuals engaged in drug deals, threatening behavior, unsanitary benches, and passed-out bodies draped across a Village sidewalk in a puddle of their own making. We decided something had to be done. We formed Team Carlsbad: Making A Difference and began calling into city council meetings and town halls. Over time, we met with the mayor and D1 council member, city manager, police chief, members of the city’s homeless commission, Carlsbad Village Associa-
tion, North County Transit District and Supervisor Jim Desmond. So much of the homeless population regularly congregated, indeed “camped,” in Rotary Park, that our efforts were focused there. Although Carlsbad has a city street running between the Village Shops west of the park, the plot of land is adjacent to the train tracks and therefore is controlled by NCTD. We worked with law enforcment, local groups and agencies to put up signs to prevent loitering in the park, allowing Sheriff deputies and police to break up encampments and clean up the park. If you’re still not sure whether Carlsbad has a homeless problem, consider these tragic events: “Carlsbad home invasion victim had 142 knife wounds;” “Homeless Woman Pleads Not Guilty To Arson
In Carlsbad Fires,” and “Police said a 25-year-old man assaulted a 70-year-old woman Tuesday morning at the facility on Laguna Drive.” Team Carlsbad argues that these folks are a danger to the community and to themselves. We do not believe that it is compassionate to allow these individuals to prey upon our citizens, literally endangering lives and livelihoods. It is also NOT compassionate to allow these individuals to wallow in the abyss of drug and alcohol addiction and living in the prison of mental illness. Let’s help everyone — homeless and community alike — be lifted out of the mire and despair of the drug addicted and mentally ill homeless problem. Speak Out. Reclaim Carlsbad. Kelly Leberthon Carlsbad
here will be plenty of political battles next year, starting with likely reelection challenges to Gov. Gavin Newsom and similar efforts to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Alex Padilla. Heated contests for the insurance commissioner’s job and an effort to unseat appointed state Attorney General Rob Bonta have already started. Initiative fights are also pretty certain, on subjects from sports gambling to flavored tobacco, state funding of private and religious schools to jury trials in child custody cases, online voting and a proposed requirement to spend 2% of the state’s general fund on water projects every year. But Bonta, a former ultra-liberal assemblyman from the East Bay suburbs of San Francisco named attorney general when President Biden picked Xavier Becerra to be his secretary of Health and Human Services, has assured that housing will vie to be the year’s No. 1 issue. Bonta, never yet elected to statewide office and already with one serious challenger, almost seems to be using reverse psychology that might inadvertently promote a proposed initiative aiming to restore full authority over local zoning and land use to local governments, where until very recently it has resided as long as California has been a state. Bonta backed two new laws best known by their state Senate bill numbers, SB 9 and SB 10, which together could virtually eliminate single family neighborhoods all over this state. He also has threatened to start enforcing previous state laws that require every city and county in California to boost housing supplies hugely on pain of lawsuits and financial penalties. Bonta named a 12-member “strike force” within the state’s Justice Department to “look at local jurisdictions’ responsibilities to build more housing,” adding that “there will be consequences, there will be accountability” if cities and counties don’t knuckle under. Those pre-existing laws, via guidelines from the Department of Housing and Community Development, have already forced many cities to plan vast new developments that could produce as many as a million new housing units. Relatively few of those units have been built, for lack of well-financed developers and the fact that buyers for new homes can be hard to find. Now come several groups determined to preserve single-family neighborhoods that embody the
longstanding “California Dream” of owning private open space and greenery. Their initiative runs completely counter to what Bonta and his longtime ally, Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener of San Francisco, are trying to do, which is essentially to remake California cities into dense New York-ish anthills of high-rises and brownstone-style duplexes. SB 9 and SB 10, for example, combine to allow six units on every lot where there is now one home. They also call for high-rise developments near “major transportation corridors” and light rail stops. All without any requirements for affordability, parking, new water supplies or new schools. In response, the initiative due to start circulating this winter would remove from the state all the powers Bonta, Wiener and allies like Oakland-based YIMBY (Yes in My Back Yard) want to exert over local land use. Says the proposed law, “The purpose of this measure is to ensure that all decisions regarding local land use controls, including zoning law and regulations, are made by the affected communities…” In short, this proposed state constitutional amendment would make it impossible for the state Legislature ever again to try reshaping the state by seizing powers traditionally held by local governments. This is a change of the usual tactic used in trying to nullify new laws. It is informed by what happened after voters last year passed a referendum cancelling a state law ending cash bail. Legislators responded by proposing a different new law that left a few circumstances allowing cash bail, but mostly would eliminate the current bail system. Expect that to pass in 2022. Advocates of local decision-making and single family homes want to prevent similar end runs around their initiative, so they’re trying to eliminate all state powers over local land use. It’s an extreme solution to a problem foisted on neighborhoods by highly ideological lawmakers like Wiener. Given the way today’s legislators often won’t accept the voters’ will, something that strong may be needed. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Encinitas, firefighters continue talks over vaccine mandate Local debate a microcosm of national friction By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — As legal battles intensify nationwide between municipal governments and first responders, negotiations over mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations remain ongoing between the City of Encinitas and a local firefighters’ union. Alex Poff, president of the Encinitas Firefighters’ Association, told The Coast News the fire union and city are still in a “meet-and-confer” period of negotiations. “We strongly support weekly testing and vaccination for those who chose it,” Poff said. “And I can’t emphasize enough that we’ve been doing this for two years without incident. Our number one goal is to give the community the level of service that they are accustomed to and they deserve.” Last month, the city extended its deadline to Jan. 31 for Encinitas Fire Department personnel to show proof of vaccination. Currently, the city is only testing unvaccinated employees within the Encinitas Fire Department. “In the meantime, we support doing weekly testing just to make sure anyone who is not vaccinated is at least tested every few days and that’s what we’ve been doing,” Poff said. Poff says over 70% of the fire staff are currently vaccinated. In October, the City of Encinitas followed through on its mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy by placing all non-vaccinated workers on unpaid leave for 30 days. After the monthlong deadline, both union and non-union employees were subject to dismissal if they could not provide proof of their vaccination status. Encinitas does not allow for a weekly testing option for its Service Employees International Union, or SEIU, staff members due to the high cost, according to the city. While talks have remained behind closed doors

in Encinitas, some cities are beginning to publicly crackdown on first responders refusing to get the vaccine. Earlier this month, a total of 113 Los Angeles city firefighters were removed from duty without pay for failing to meet the city's COVID-19 vaccination mandate for municipal employees, according to regional wire reports. Firefighters and state workers in California, Washington and Florida have filed lawsuits over mandatory vaccinations. Most recently, two Beverly Hills firefighters and a nonprofit group filed a lawsuit Los Angeles County and the City of Beverly Hills, alleging the county's health care worker coronavirus vaccination mandate should be declared void and that the city has no authority to question religious exemptions to the mandate, according to City News Service.
In previous comments to The Coast News, a city spokesperson did not express concerns over staffing issues within the Encinitas Fire Department if a vaccine mandate results in the dismissal of employees refusing

Mosca rotates to serve as deputy mayor By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — After a year in the seat, Councilmember Tony Kranz has been succeeded by newly appointed Deputy Mayor Joe Mosca in a unanimous vote last week. The Encinitas City Council rotates its deputy mayor on a yearly basis. The rotation will be the second time Mosca has served as deputy mayor since being appointed to the council in 2017 and the first since winning his reelection to his district seat in 2018. “I have been so thrilled with the deputy mayor for the past year. Councilmember Kranz has done a great job and it’s been a pleasure sitting next to you. You
don’t have any annoying tics or anything that I’ve noticed,” Blakespear jokingly said before nominating Mosca. In his capacity as deputy mayor, Mosca will also serve as the president of the San Dieguito Water District for the coming year. Before joining the council in 2017, Mosca worked for San Diego Gas & Electric and also previously served on the Sierra Madre City Council, even serving one year as mayor of Sierra Madre. After being nominated, Mosca made no statements but did joke to Blakespear that he, unlike Kranz, did have annoying tics. “I’m going to get after
fire operations with a combination of in-house city staff and consultants. As a result, we supplement with consulting staff when we have vacancies where possible.” If staffing issues arise, the issue will be dealt with
you and tell you to cut them out,” Blakespear said. Councilmember Joy Lyndes, who was appointed to the council in February 2021, is the only council member who has not yet served as deputy mayor. The city’s municipal code states that on the first City Council meeting in December of odd-numbered years and the second Tuesday of each December in even-numbered years, the council will choose one of its own to serve as deputy mayor for one year. Aside from the role of president of the San Dieguito Water District, the deputy mayor will also preside over city council meetings in the absence of the mayor.
by the city’s Fire Chief Mike Stein, Taber explained. “As the discussions continue, the Fire Chief will be tasked with identifying and addressing any potential
staffing changes that could occur if the City is unable to reach an agreement with the union,” Taber said. “We are not there yet.” Amid the vaccination talks, the city and fire union are also in the process of negotiating a new contract. The current deal, which was approved in 2018, is set to expire at the end of the year. In a statement on the city’s website, Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear said the vaccine is a critical part of public safety for the city. “We at the City of Encinitas are holding ourselves to a higher standard of safety,” Blakespear said. “We do not want to be the cause of any infections and we know the vaccine is the best way to stop the spread of coronavirus. We want people to have the confidence when they come into City Hall to conduct business or when
our employees enter their homes that we are doing all we can to protect them.” The city’s COVID-19 policy agreed to in August 2021 states that city employees must present proof of vaccination to human resources and must also receive any FDA-approved booster shot. The policy states that any employee who violates the policy will be “disciplined for cause in accordance with an applicable memorandum of understanding.” According to NBC, firefighter leadership and personnel are split over vaccine mandates. For example, the International Association of Fire Chiefs has expressed support for mandatory vaccinations. Conversely, the International Association of Fire Fighters has said it “strongly” encourages firefighters to get vaccinated, but does not think it should be mandated.

on an unnecessary election barely a year after District 3 voters elected me to the Board of Supervisors,” Lawson-Remer said in the statement. The recall was originally filed in September and one of the names on the original filing was Escondido business owner David Chiddick, who participated in rallies in Washington D.C. on the day of the Jan. 6 insurrection. Mike Johnson, president and secretary of Undivided San Diego, told The Coast News this week it is unfair to characterize supporters of the recall as extremist or radical. “It just seems like she came in very divisive,” Johnson said. “When she got into office, she made it clear right away that she wasn’t going to be accountable to the people. She never opened an office in the district, which she was more than capable of doing.” Johnson and others started Undivided in November. According to filings with the Registrar of Voters, the group's stated goal is to “educate and support the people of San Diego County to become more politically active in local issues regardless of party. Focus on liberty and nondiscrimination.” Lawson-Remer easily won her election to the Board of Supervisors after defeating incumbent Kristin Gaspar by a significant margin of victory in a high turnout election, a result that gives the supervisor confidence her recall proponents will not reach the number of signatures required to force a special election. “I am remaining focused on delivering services to my constituents to protect our quality of life, help families make a better living, support struggling renters and small businesses, and get more than two million residents vaccinated. I trust that reasonable San Diegans will unite to say enough is enough with this wasteful recall,” Lawson-Remer said in a statement. On the Undivided San Diego website dedicated to the recall, the group lists 10 reasons it believes the supervisor should be recalled, ranging from her perceived behavior during board meetings to her apparent unwillingness to meet with or respond to some constituents' concerns. Johnson said he has attempted to speak with the supervisor but has never received a response from her office. Despite the voters' support for Lawson-Remer one year ago, Johnson appears confident his group can gather enough support for the recall. “We’re giving people an opportunity and if enough people think that she deserves to be recalled then it goes to a vote,” Johnson said. “Almost everyone I’ve talked to, regardless of party affiliation, has said she doesn’t really seem like she wants to be there. I think it’s worth putting it to the voters.”

Design work for College Blvd project begins By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — A stretch of College Boulevard is on track to be widened from four to six lanes, with the design phase set to be complete in the next two years. The Oceanside City Council approved an agreement with San Diego-based CR Associates to design the widening of College Boulevard from Waring Road to Old Grove Road in early December. Proposed in 2020, the project would maintain College from Waring to Olive Drive as a four-lane major arterial with the
exception of minor rightof-way and traffic calming improvements. This would include minor widening of College at its intersection at Waring to convert the existing south and northbound right-turn lanes into merge lanes. Then from Olive, College Boulevard would be widened to six lanes all the way to Old Grove Road. Additional elements of the project include improved safety measures and access points for intersections without signals, safer routes for bicyclists and pedestrians, and curb extensions at College and
Marvin Street to shorten the crosswalk for pedestrians. College Boulevard is classified as a six-lane major arterial from Waring Road to Old Grove Road, in the city’s General Plan traffic circulation element. Currently, the 2.41-mile stretch of road is built with four lanes. Council approved the design agreement for the College Boulevard widening project by a 4-0 vote with Mayor Esther Sanchez abstaining. Councilmember Christopher Rodriguez, who uses College Boulevard to
take his kids to school, was pleased to see the project moving along as planned. “This is a heavy traffic area,” he said. “I’m sure a lot of Oceanside residents are looking forward to this much-needed relief in traffic.” The project’s design will be developed throughout the next year with construction preparation documents to start in 2022 and extend into 2023. Two public workshops on the project will be held sometime in 2022. In order to expand College Boulevard to six lanes, the project still needs right-
of-way acquisition along segments of its corridor. The project’s design budget is $2.3 million overall. Currently, the city has the funds for all design work completed this current fiscal year, ending in June 2022, which is approximately $734,540. The remaining $1.5 million will be paid once additional funding is available in the fiscal year 20222023. Staff anticipates receiving $4 million from the city’s Major Thoroughfare Program funds that same fiscal year, which will be used to pay for this portion of the project.

County OKs airport master plan By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — After years of meetings, lobbying and lawsuits, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the McClellan-Palomar Airport Master Plan during its Dec. 8 meeting. The board also approved moving forward with a 200-foot extension of the runway with an engineered material arresting system (EMAS) for safety; directed staff to work on a D-III configuration, which would return to the board for approval and to develop a sustainability plan, and engage the Federal Aviation Administration over noise, quiet hours and penalties for aircraft violating quiet hours. The master plan returned to the board after the county addressed a judicial order that required the county to include a supplemental noise analysis and ordering the county to obtain a conditional use permit-172 from the City of Carlsbad if the design status of the airport is changed to accommodate the “design critical aircraft,” according to the staff report. The estimated cost is $41.7 million, with $37.5 million coming from FAA funding, according to the staff report. “It’s almost like the problem isn’t bad enough for the FAA,” Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer said. “The concern I’ve heard is the noise, traffic and that the noise and traffic will get worse. It’s a very im-
portant issue and very contentious.” The D-III designation would allow for larger jets, although the airport, under the jurisdiction of the FAA, currently allows D-III aircraft. Frank Sung, a member of Citizens for a Friendly Airport, a group of residents fighting against the master plan and the D-III designation, said “we are better off today.” Sung said the group is happy the airport will remain a B-II facility, although Sung said there still are concerns over the possible 200-foot runway extension the county is “claiming to justify a yet longer runway.” The group filed a lawsuit in 2018 against the county for violating the California Environmental Quality Act and in 2019 against the City of Carlsbad and county. The city also filed suit against the county in 2018 for violating CEQA. Dozens of North County residents also called into the meeting and hundreds sent letters in opposition to the county’s plan, including a petition with 2,200 signatures. Concerns varied from noise levels, emissions, air traffic and worries over the county expanding the footprint to be like John Wayne Airport in Orange County. “We will be watching the D-III design considerations very carefully to ensure that the county abides by both the spirit and the letter of the court’s rul-
ing,” Sung said. “We will also be watching the City of Carlsbad’s response since any runway extension requires the county to go back to the city for approval. This is a good opportunity for the City of Carlsbad to assert authority which was handed to them as a result of C4FA’s lawsuit against the county’s 2018 Master Plan.” Cam Humphries, the county’s airport director, said the master plan does not support being scaled to match John Wayne Airport and the runway, if moved and rebuilt, will not meet safety or design standards to handle a 737 jumbo jet. At its peak, he said, the number of takeoffs or landings was 300,000 per year. Currently, McClellan-Palomar Airport is between 130,000 to 140,000. Humphries said the forecast’s highest activity level is 208,000. Humphries said nothing in the master plan proposes to increase the capacity, noting that a longer runway allows jets to gain altitude faster, thus reducing noise over the flight path. Humphries said 90% of the complaints the country receives regarding noise are from smaller propellor planes in the “traffic pattern” practicing takeoffs and landings. Also, the airport already operates at a D-III designation with 40% of the planes based at the facility being jets. Humphries also stated the FAA has most of the control of the airport and overall air commerce.
ESCONDIDO — San Pasqual Academy, a foster youth program in Escondido, will be allowed to stay open at least temporarily after a San Diego judge granted a petition that keeps the program from being closed while the case goes to trial. In March, the school, which has also served as a residential home for wards of the Juvenile Court system since 2001 and is capable of housing nearly 200 kids on-site, was ordered to close its doors by Oct. 1 by state and county officials. A group of former academy students, staff, and volunteers subsequently filed a lawsuit with the San Diego Superior Court in August, asking the court to declare the state’s decision unlawful and to order that the program be allowed to remain open indefinitely. On Dec. 3, Judge Robert Dahlquist granted a preliminary injunction in the case that will allow the academy to stay open at least until the case goes to trial and a final decision is issued in the matter. Attorneys for the academy hailed Dahlquist’s decision as a victory that they say is a crucial step in allowing the program to continue to serve the foster care needs of San Diego County. “Now that this injunction has been issued, there’s no reason to believe that this place won’t be open indefinitely,” said Charles LiMandri with LiMandri & Jonna LLP, the law firm representing San Pasqual Academy. “This decision provides the basis for the state and the county to continue to operate a one of a kind extremely successful facility for teenagers who are the most in need of it and the most disenfranchised foster youth with nowhere else to go.” LiMandri said that he expects a permanent
injunction to be issued reaffirming the preliminary decision once the case goes to trial in several months (an exact trial date has not yet been determined). The California Department of Social Services and the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency had ordered that the academy be closed in accordance with the California Continuum of Care Reform Act (AB 403). That law, passed in 2015, mandated that “group” or “congregate” homes like the San Pasqual Academy be closed or converted to short-term residential centers, with the goal being to prioritize the placement of juveniles within traditional foster families instead of group homes. While San Pasqual Academy is licensed by the state as a group home, county and state lawmakers were able to work in a provision — referred to as Section 121 — to AB 403 that specifically allowed the academy to remain open under conditions specified in the bill. Subsequently, in 2016, the county and the state agreed to allow the academy to run as a pilot program at least through the end of 2021. However, in a memo to the county issued in February, the state claimed that Section 121 was only meant to keep the academy open temporarily, and ordered the county to close the facility by October. In his preliminary injunction, Dahlquist ruled that the state had misinterpreted Section 121, writing that the state failed to carve out an appropriate licensing category that the academy could fit into. The state Department of Social Services declined to comment on the ruling. “We are currently reviewing the ruling and the Board of Supervisors will make the determination on what next steps to take,” said Sarah Sweeney, a spokesperson for the county’s Health and Human Services Agency.

Sports Looking back at a year in sports to remember
THE CHARGERS had training camp in Escondido but once, in 1964, when Leslie “Speedy” Duncan (45) was a long-shot to make the team. His passing this month at age 79 brings with it the memories of what he overcame to become an All-AFL and Pro Bowl performer. Photo courtesy of the Chargers
‘Speedy’ is gone, but his story never gets old
he news of Chargers great Leslie “Speedy” Duncan’s death at age 79 came with sadness, appreciation and the recognition of two unlikely occurrences. Duncan was on the only Chargers team to have training camp in Escondido. Not only was the North County graced with its presence in 1964 but it was a squad like none that came before or after it. The Chargers were the 1963 American Football League champions. It remains the only summer the Chargers entered camp as a defending league champion. Among their players was a cornerback and return specialist in Duncan, although his brush with fame almost never happened. I covered many Chargers camps, but 1964 was even before my stint. But what a time I had meeting Duncan, while writing “Game of My Life San Diego Chargers.” Duncan was living with his daughter in Spring Valley when I shook his hand. It was clear to see why they called him Speedy, even at his advanced age. He scurried this way to grab an old picture, he went that way to uncover a scrapbook with yellowed clippings and frayed edges. Duncan’s eyes sparkled when explaining how he intercepted this pass or brought back a punt that deflated one more opponent. What I also took from Duncan was his quest to outrun racism while being a Black athlete in the Deep South in the turbulent 1960s. The shifty Duncan made defenders miss while also seeking the balance that comes with equality. For Duncan, a member of the Chargers Hall of Fame, it was a breeze to sprint past those in uniform colors opposite of his. Not so
sports talk jay paris getting past those stifling his American dream of just playing football like those with lighter skin. My admiration for Duncan, a three-time All-AFL selection and later a Pro Bowler with Washington, was always keen. But after connecting with this human highlight film, my respect grew when learning of the hurdles he faced and how his determination never faltered. His story had an impact and maybe by telling it again, it’ll continue to do so. Duncan was a star in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but he wasn’t yelling “Roll Tide” despite scoring 26 touchdowns as a senior in leading his squad to a 11-0 record. Many locals knew him, too, from the Tuscaloosa Country Club, where he was among its most popular caddies. But an opportunity for him to play football at the University of Alabama was a longer shot than a hole-inone on a par 5. “Shoot, when we went by and they were practicing, all they would let us do was maybe peek under the fence,’’ Duncan said. “I wasn’t going to be able to play there; no blacks did that back then. So I knew I was going to Jackson State.’’ Duncan thrived at the all-Black school in neighboring Mississippi. But his senior year was derailed by a leg injury that sidelined him for the final seven games and torpedoed his chances of being selected by the National Football League or the AFL. “I got passed up in the draft,’’ he said. Al LoCasale, then a
Chargers scout, knew of the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Duncan’s skills and he invited the free agent to Escondido for a tryout. Chargers coaches were soon shaking their heads and stopwatches: Duncan clocked a teambest 4.4 in the 40-yard dash. “The coaches said, ‘Run that again little fella because something ain’t right,’’’ Duncan said. Time didn’t lie, or stand still, when Duncan’s legs were churning. “I came here with 10 cents in my pocket and I would race anybody for a dime,’’ Duncan said. “I was trying to get the coaches’ attention.” What they saw was a force on both sides of the ball. What they also recognized was that Duncan looked like few others. “They had quotas for Black players and only kept so many,’’ he said. “But I told them, ‘I ain’t going nowhere and I don’t care what I have to do to make the
club.’’ He did that, of course, while also moving the ball forward in race relations. Treating people right regardless of their skin color remains a work in progress today, because of what guys like Duncan did all those yesterdays ago. That’s something to remember when Alabama plays for yet another title in the coming weeks and the streaking Chargers aim for their first league championship since 1963. Black players now make up about 70% of NFL rosters. The checks they cash dwarf Duncan’s $12,000 contract, the one he signed in Escondido during that unlikely summer of 1964. Rest in speed, Mr. Duncan. Your integrity and drive will outlive all your statistics, as they should. Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com and follow him @jparis_sports
Torrey Pines alums capture beach volleyball world title By City News Service
REGION — Torrey Pines High School graduates Megan Kraft and Delaynie Maple won the 2021 FIVB Beach Volleyball women’s U19 world championship, defeating Russians Olga Gavrilova and Alina Salmanova, 2112, 21-17, in the final Dec. 11 in Phuket, Thailand. “There’s something different about winning with USA on your chest and it’s always fun to do it with your best friend,” said Maple, also a teammate of Kraft’s with the USC beach volleyball team. Kraft and Maple needed to win a qualifying match to advance to the main draw, where they were seeded 27th in the field of 32.
They won all three matches in pool play, then won three more to advance to the semifinals, where they defeated fellow Americans Xolani Hodel and Kate Reilly, both Stanford sophomores, 21-17, 2115, on Friday, Dec. 10. Kraft and Maple won 16 of their 17 sets, losing only the opening set in the round of 16 to Desy Poiesz and Brecht Piersma of the Netherlands. Kraft and Maple are the second U.S. team to win the championship, joining the team of Jane Croson and Summer Ross, who won in 2010. The tournament, which began in 2002, was originally for players 18 and under, switching to under-19 in 2005.
he holidays are fast approaching and we react to them in a variety of ways. For myself, I struggle with celebrating Christmas after my mother passed away three years ago. But this isn’t about me, this is about the birth of Jesus Christ. This time of year is a good time to reflect upon our many blessings. Some aren’t so lucky, facing trials and tribulations — sickness, death and other tragedies — that they have zero control over. These last few years have been quite trying, but as residents of North County, we can continue to show love and be grateful. So, I will share some great stories that have dotted the sports world and have landed close to home. • Solana Beach Little League took down powerful Encinitas LL on its way to the regionals before being eliminated. Encinitas owned Solana Beach for years … until this summer. The celebration at Chief’s Burgers & Brew that night was as good as anything I saw this year. Kids and family believing and respecting one another. • Garrett Stubbs, a Torrey Pines graduate who was on the Houston Astros’ regular season roster as a catcher and was in the dugout during the World Series, showed true grit all season. He was traded last month to the Philadelphia Phillies, joining up with another North County prospect, former La Costa Canyon outfielder Mickey Moniak. • The Del Mar Racetrack opened to fans this summer after being somewhat dark in 2020. There is nothing like fans and horses together, and both accounted for a record season. • Our Padres started off hot — the best team in baseball after 40 games — but melted down during the second half of the season to give us only a quarter of a thrill. Looking forward to next season with a veteran winning manager in Bob Melvin. Love the spirit the fans have for their Padres. • San Diego was voted one of the top 10 coolest cities to live and its residents and people are even cooler. Every day we are blessed to live in a magnificent community surrounding America’s Finest City. We the people make up its greatness. • The Army-Navy Game played last Saturday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, was an Instant Classic in so many ways. First, Navy was playing its last game of the season, coming in with a bowl-ineligible record of 3-8. Army came into the game with an 8-3 record. Both military academies put on a good show, giving huge effort and delivering an exciting, hard-fought football game as the Midshipmen upset the Black Knights, 17-13. Add points
information felix taverna for the sportsmanship of both coaches, both teams and the way athletics should be. Maybe the NCAA and the NFL will take notes on how to conduct post-game celebrations. Our country shined brightly that day and like most, I was proud to be an American. For those cadets and midshipmen playing their final collegiate game, you saved the best for last! Thanks for your service. • The Breeders’ Cup (the World Series of horse racing) returned to Del Mar for the second time in November after the debuting in 2017. This event was welcomed royally by the horse-loving community we have become, setting another record for economic impact on the coastal cities. The week was magical, filled with people from around the world. The racing was of international quality too. It will be back. Guaranteed! • Giving thanks and a major shout-out to the fine people at The Coast News who week in and week out publish the news that is so important to us along the coast. A long, long time ago, back in the late ’80s, publisher Jim Kydd kicked off this paper in his garage with his assistant Shelly to give coastal residents a read of local news. Now published by his son Chris, edited by Jordan Ingram and represented by Sue Otto in sales, this column has been quite rewarding for me to write. They put their hearts into every edition and do it with top-notch pride and service. I am grateful to them as tremendous friends and leaders, and you should too. Now we can sit back and enjoy 35 college football bowl games during this holiday season — games taking place all over the country and landing at Petco Park on Dec. 28 with San Diego’s own Holiday Bowl leading up to the College Football Playoff national championship game on Jan. 10. This has been a fast-moving year with so many side dishes and appetizers. But as we grow and bond together as a community, we remember the song the late Joe Cocker belted out, “I get by with a little help from my friends” and to me friends are everything. Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season whatever you celebrate. We are all one and the sooner we start believing our power of togetherness and love, the better we will be. Truly it’s been a magical year on so many levels.

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.

State utilities commission proposes rooftop solar reform By Steve Puterski
REGION — One of the most pressing issues in the state’s energy policy is how to address its rooftop solar program. The California Public Utilities Commission, or CPUC, released its proposed decision, authored by Martha Guzman Aceves, on Dec. 13, which calls for slashing payments for solar energy, pushing for more battery storage and creating a public fund to help low-income residents adopt solar. The state utility commission will make a final ruling on Jan. 27, 2022. At issue is a payment program for solar customers, known as net energy metering, or NEM, which was created 26 years ago to promote solar panel adoption. The program requires investor-owned utilities to pay solar customers for extra energy produced by their systems and delivered to the power grid. In 2013, Assembly Bill 327 required the utility commission to reform the NEM program. The plan's first round of reforms, known as NEM 2.0, came in 2016. Now, NEM 3.0 is on its way. Proponents of the current program, namely homeowners and solar companies, have claimed reform efforts will kill the industry, hurt businesses and add costs to homeowners. Scott Sarem, vice president of Multifamily at Sunrun, the nation’s largest rooftop solar installer, has worked with low to moderate multifamily housing for more than a decade. Through his lens, the decision embraces the utilities by “sort of” adopting what they proposed. In 2015, Sarem helped pass Assembly Bill 693, known as the Multifamily Affordable Housing Solar Roofs Program. “The decision guts that,” Sarem said of AB 693. “It makes the value proposition of solar go away based on the net metering rates that folks receive. They’ve made the value of solar go down roughly 80% to 90%. They’ve made it incredibly inaccessible and not economical for low to moderate-income Californians.” Alex Williams, a founding partner with Solar Energy Partners, said the push for batteries doesn’t make sense since the supply for batteries is thin. Williams said there is a minimum six-month backlog and if any significant portion of the 1.3 million rooftop solar customers join the waiting list, it will only grow longer and potentially leave them out of any incentives through the new program. Williams said a delay would be necessary to mitigate battery supply issues, noting the market is not ready for a mass rush of customers adding battery storage. “There is going to have to be an implementation

period to let it catch up,” Williams said. “The state of California has mandated that everyone go solar (with new construction), but at the same time they want the utilities to be able to penalize you on a monthly basis for the solar that you have to install.” However, critics and reformists, cite the unfair cost shift onto homeowners or renters without solar panels — who are paying $3 billion more per year than those with solar panels — and utility companies who want everyone to pay their fair share to maintain the grid. Kathy Fairbanks, a spokeswoman for Affordable Clean Energy for All, a coalition of 115 groups representing low-income customers, seniors, businesses, and others, said the proposed decision is a step in the right direction. “The solar industry will tell you the ‘sky is falling,’ but what they won’t say is that the cost of rooftop solar has dropped 70% while the subsidies have continued to increase over the past 25 years,” Fairbanks said. “Currently, Californians who don’t have solar panels are paying about $245 more each year in electric bills to cover the costs for those who do have rooftop solar. If NEM isn’t fixed, that $245 per year cost shift will grow to $555 per year by 2030.” SDG&E, for example, pays $0.31 per kilowatt per hour to buy back excess electricity, according to a previous interview with SDG&E spokeswoman Helen Gao. The market rate is $0.05 and the excess cost is shifted to non-solar customers, which is used for upgrading power lines, wildfire mitigation and other programs, according to Gao.
Due to those shifts, the University of California, Berkeley-Next 10 report showed SDG&E customers pay an average of $230 more per year, while California Alternative Rates for Energy (for low-income customers) pay an extra $124. As far as the latest decision, SDG&E said it is reviewing the latest NEM 3.0 proposal. “SDG&E will reserve comment until our experts have an opportunity to review the 204-page proposed decision and evaluate its impact on our customers,” SDG&E wrote in a statement.
The CPUC’s ruling said change is coming and the current NEM 2.0 program is not meeting the needs of every customer. “Our review of the current net energy metering tariff, referred to as NEM 2.0, found that the tariff negatively impacts non-participating customers; is not cost-effective; and disproportionately harms low-income ratepayers,” the CPUC wrote. “This decision determines that to address the requirements of the guiding principles and the findings related to the NEM 2.0 tariff, the successor tariff should promote equity, inclusion, electrification, and paired storage and provide a glide path so that the industry can sustainably transition from the current tariff to the successor.” The CPUC will create a net billing tariff to balance the needs of the grid, environment and customers. The agency said the updated NEM program must be modernized to incentivize paired storage and rooftop solar but must adopt more accurate pricing. The reform calls for a monthly residential grid participation charge of $8 per kilowatt of installed solar, which is a way for those customers to pay their fair share of costs to maintain the grid, safety projects and fund public programs, according to CPUC. Additionally, the commission is proposing reducing solar incentives to $0.05 per kilowatt-hour from $0.31 in San Diego Gas & Electric’s territory. The proposal includes a bill credit for net billing customers to ensure they can pay for solar and storage systems in 10 years or less through those savings. However, the credit is designed to phase out. The plan also calls for
an equity fund of up to $600 million to improve access for low-income customers distributed to clean energy programs with “strong consumer protections.” Additionally, the new program would allow Net Billing customers to “oversize” their systems by 150% of their historical load to allow for future vehicle and appliance electrification, according to the CPUC. “The proposal issued today … determines that NEM must be modernized to incentivize customers to install storage paired with
rooftop solar to help California meet its net peak shortfall and ensure grid reliability,” the CPUC said in a press release. “The Proposed Decision (sic) adopts more accurate price signals that will promote greater adoption of customer-sited storage, which will help California decrease its dependency on fossil fuels during the early evening hours when the sun is down, and energy demand is high.” The public can comment until Jan. 27 through the CPUC.

Silvergate seniors dazzled by holiday trip Stories of celebrities, heads of state and famous guests who have roamed the halls of the 133-year-old Hotel del Coronado were colorfully shared by a hotel historian this week with current and future residents of Silvergate Retirement Residence, a boutique collection of senior living communities that places a strong focus on lifestyle enrichment for seniors. The entire Silvergate family, including nearly 150 residents and guests, gathered together to celebrate the holiday season in grand style. “Our annual holiday trip to the Hotel Del has become a Silvergate family tradition,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director of Silvergate’s San Marcos community, whose residents and guests enjoyed a fine-dining experience in the same grand ballroom where presidents, royalty and celebrities have gathered for more than a century. “Rather than being at home alone during the holidays, our residents have an opportunity to come together and enjoy the magic of the season like extended family. This event – like so many of our outings – is just one more reason why living at Silvergate makes such a difference for seniors who want unique things to do as part of their retirement lifestyle.” Surrounded by the grandeur and beauty of the Hotel del Coronado at the holiday season, attendees were treated to an hour-long historical overview of the hotel after meandering through an array of holiday decorations in the grand courtyard during Silvergate’s Hotel del Coronado excursion. While dining in the hotel’s historic Coronet Room, Silvergate’s guests were enraptured by the stories imparted by Historian and Heritage Manager, Gina Petrone. In her talk, Petrone recounted the history of the hotel’s colorful owners, including “Sugar King,” John D. Spreckels in 1888. She told of the escapades of celebrities like Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Thomas Edison and Liberace, who was first discovered at The Del. Petrone spoke of the many visits by heads of state and dignitaries like President Franklin D. Roosevelt, The
Prince of Wales and Ronald Reagan. She also described the unexplainable activity of the hotel’s ghostly inhabitants whose eerie antics are still reported by guests to this day. Guests left with a better understanding of the majesty of the hotel and why it is considered a national treasure on the West Coast. “I wanted to be a part of this outing today because I had never seen this beautiful old Victorian hotel before,” said Joy Emmerson, who has been a Silvergate San Marcos since 2019. “I thought I would continue to go places like the Hotel Del as I got older, but planning it and actually making it happen just got to be a chore that I never got around to. At Silvergate, they take care of everything and all I have to do is hop on the bus and go enjoy the day with my new friends and neighbors. Being part of this community is such a great way to live in retirement. I just love the lifestyle we get to live here.” “Because our owners are right here in the area, they are able to regularly attend these kinds of events and be engaged with our residents and guests on a more personal level,” said David Nelson, Marketing Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “We are so fortunate to have them so closely involved with all of our communities. They support these types of events because they are the caliber of activities that they would want for themselves and their own family members. That type of involvement is rare in senior living and really sets us apart from other retirement communities.” Events & activities at Silvergate
Planning events that keep seniors active and engaged has long been the aim of the Activities Teams at Silvergate, whose calendar of events are consistently filled with creative ways to keep residents on-the-go and entertained all year round. For those interested in learning more about Silvergate San Marcos by participating in a community outing, call David Nelson at (760) 744-4484.

the ramp left or right instead of straight down. City Engineer Brian Thomas said the ramp, along with the pier’s cement portion, was first built in 1927. “The ramp was constructed, we believe, as an access point to The Strand for on-beach parking at that time,” Thomas said via email. In 2015, public vehicle
access was restricted due to the concrete structure’s weakening condition. Now, only emergency and maintenance vehicles are allowed to drive on the ramp. A replacement and rehabilitation study is currently underway to improve the pier and is running concurrently but separately from the city’s second phase of its Beachfront Improvement Project. According to Thomas, the city’s focus is to keep the historic look of the pier’s
concrete portion while also extending its life expectancy. The pier’s new design will include additional ADA features, such as switch-back ramps from Pacific Street to The Strand and a possible elevator. Public outreach meetings are currently ongoing for both the pier improvement study and the beachfront improvement projects. Thomas said city staff is currently investigating

ways to curtail skateboarders’ use of the ramp. There is currently signage prohibiting skateboarding down all ramps attached to the pier’s concrete portion. While making the ramp longer could help, Thomas said such a change would alter the pier’s historic look and would not be meant for pedestrian access or use. “This is, however, an option we can open for discussion at the public meetings,” he noted.

Caltrans, SANDAG Build NCC celebrate 2021 achievements The Caltrans and SANDAG Build NCC project team is acknowledging another year of project successes throughout North San Diego County. Despite the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, Build NCC crews have safely tracked towards the completion of highway, environmental, community enhancement, and coastal access improvement projects as part of the North Coast Corridor Program. Most notably, this fall Build NCC crews began the final construction segment which will allow for four new miles of Carpool/ HOV Lanes on Interstate 5 (I-5) from Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad to State Route 78 (SR 78). The new Carlsbad Carpool/HOV Extension features the first temporary orange lane striping pilot program in California to enhance construction zone awareness and alert motorists of the reduced speed limit. By early 2022, Build NCC crews are expected to complete six sound walls along I-5 that will provide noise abatement to the communities in Encinitas and Carlsbad, and additionally crews will complete construction on the San Elijo Lagoon highway bridge. Throughout this past year, crews have conducted 19 ramp closures

and additional highway improvements to prepare for 13 miles of new Carpool/ HOV Lanes on I-5 from Lomas Santa Fe Drive in the city of Solana Beach to Palomar Airport Road in the city of Carlsbad. One northbound and one southbound HOV Lane is expected to be open to traffic in early 2022 to help alleviate traffic congestion in the corridor. In 2021, we aimed to improve the quality of life for all residents by enhancing our communities. Build NCC crews created a new signalized crosswalk at the Manchester Avenue and San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center crossing to allow visitors to safely traverse
the busy street. Looking forward to next year, the bike and pedestrian suspension bridge underneath the San Elijo Lagoon highway bridge will be complete. After opening in April 2022, pedestrians will be able to travel across the San Elijo Lagoon and have access to over 7 miles of trails within the lagoon. Cyclists will also be able to bike safely in a new class II bike lane on Manchester Avenue, heading west from the pedestrian suspension bridge. The Build NCC team is proudly working towards building a sustainable transportation network that will serve the community for years to come. We
thank you for your patience throughout construction. The Build NCC project is an example of the projects proposed in the 2021 Regional Plan. The 2021 Regional Plan is a long-term blueprint for the San Diego region that seeks to improve quality of life, address social equity, and preserve our environment for generations to come. It is designed to reimagine the San Diego region with a transformative transportation network, a sustainable pattern of growth and development, and innovative demand and management strategies. As you travel for the holidays, please remember to “Drive 55 on the 5” in Build NCC construction zones and that traffic fines are doubled. Motorists should also Be Work Zone Alert, move over a lane when safe to do so to avoid workers on the side of the road, slow down, and never enter active construction work areas. From our engineering and construction family to yours, we wish you a safe, healthy and happy new year! For more information, please visit KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/BuildNCC, and sign up for text alerts by texting “BuildNCC” to (760) 454-0050.

SANDAG updates Del Mar council on bluff stabilization project By Tigist Layne
DEL MAR — The Del Mar City Council heard an update from the San Diego Association of Governments, or SANDAG, on Phase 5 of its Bluff Stabilization Project, a long-term project that aims to stabilize portions of the Del Mar coastal bluffs. SANDAG is leading the six-phase effort in collaboration with the North County Transit District, or NCTD. Since 2003, the first four phases of the project have included the installation of more than 230 support columns into the bluffs and the construction of sea walls, a drainage channel and more. According to SANDAG Senior Engineer Allie DeVaux, who spoke at the council meeting, the penultimate phase will address additional seismic and general stabilization needs, install additional support columns and replace more aging drainage structures. Del Mar Mayor Terry Gaasterland, who has been critical of the project, told The Coast News that SAN-
CONSTRUCTION CREWS have been working since a portion of the Del Mar bluffs collapsed in late February. Mayor Terry Gaasterland has encouraged Del Mar residents to put pressure on SANDAG to relocate the train tracks off the bluffs. File photo
DAG has had decades to find a solution for bluff stabilization and to relocate the railroad tracks off of the bluffs. Now, Gaasterland said, it has become up to the Del Mar community to put the pressure on SANDAG, while also protecting their coast. “All of a sudden these
walls go in, and we’re seeing it already with some of the walls that are there, we lose the beach at high tide. It is gone. That is a qualitative change,” Gaasterland said. “The other qualitative shift is the seawalls make it impossible to use the existing trails that do go up and down those bluffs, and
that’s another fundamental change. Access to the beach will be gone.” Devaux said during the meeting that the calculations for sand and recreation laws do take into account the beach loss that will result from the sea walls. “We’re also proposing to the Coastal Commission
that the mitigation is put into a fund for coastal access and beach replenishment, and that money can be used to add sand to the beach and replenish the beach,” said Bruce Smith, SANDAG principal engineer. The council received several public comments, some regarding a controversial project by NCTD that would put fencing along the rail on the bluff. In late October, NCTD presented an updated fencing proposal to the Del Mar council that called for just under 7,000 feet of chain-link “fall protection” fencing at varying heights (ranging from 4 to 6 feet in height) along the upper and lower portions of the coastal bluffs in Del Mar. A group of residents, including Gaasterland, recently signed and submitted a petition to the California Coastal Commission asking them to help protect the bluffs from NCTD’s fencing plans. Gaasterland also brought up the fencing issue to the SANDAG representatives.
“It’s not my project, it’s NCTD’s project,” said Smith. “Allie and I are here to stabilize the bluffs, keep it safe for trains to run.” However, it should be noted that while SANDAG has previously denied being involved in the Right of Way Fencing project, an NCTD staff report from a 2019 board meeting (page 26) lists Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN), SANDAG AND NCTD as co-applicants for the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) Discretionary Grant Application. One of the application phases listed is fencing “in Oceanside, Encinitas and Del Mar.” Gaasterland also discussed the railroad track relocation proposal that is part of SANDAG’s newly approved $160 billion transportation plan. The mayor, who is on the SANDAG board, voted in favor of the plan, but told The Coast News that she thinks the train tracks should be relocated to a tunnel by 2030, not by 2035 as the plan concludes.
Local artist, professional skateboarder dies suddenly
ane Timpson, poet, artist, skateboarder, took his last breath looking into the eyes of his partner, Maddy, surrounded by people he loved and who loved him on November 13, 2021. There is some comfort to his parents, Kathy Greene and Jeff Timpson that their only child did not die alone. He was 26 years old. The cause of death was a ruptured dissection of the ascending aorta. Born in the house his father built in Leucadia, Zane grew up spending most days since the age of 7 at the local YMCA skate park. His passion for all things skate and the discipline necessary to put in the hours of work and sacrifice, the accompanying blood, sweat and tears to land a trick or make endless film edits was evident early in his life. With an old video camera, he began filming and editing in fifth grade. He was a local phenome in a crowded field of talented skaters. Zane was as an all-terrain skater. He skated vert, bowl, street and was also known for bombing hills. He faced his own mortality on a regular basis, carefully calculating risk and staying fully present. Transcending his skateboarding career, Zane integrated audio, visual, cinema and poetry as the lens through which he viewed the world. Zane’s recognition began to reach far beyond Southern California to the corners of the globe before
he finished middle school. Camp Woodward tapped him for its Season 3 show on FuelTV. From New Pollution reels featuring a tween Zane in his hometown and Bronson’s ‘Life in the Fast Lane’ following an adult Zane, still in his hometown but with slightly expanded geography to The New Yorker spotlighting ‘The Hill Bombing Skateboarders of San Francisco,’ Zane’s personality as much as his talent can be viewed through film. But it is his words, his poetry that reveals the depth of his appetite for life, as he defined it in visceral form. For Zane everything was purposeful, every word mattered, every norm questioned. Zane spent years developing a canon of work in which creatives of his generation, his friends –poets, painters, photographers-were published in his series of curated zines, “Old Youth.” The ultimate advocate, Zane focused more often on others’ talents rather than his own. “Humble” is a word frequently used to describe him. And a word used in
A PROLIFIC ARTIST who dubbed skateboarding “a violent ballet,” Zane Timpson said he was more comfortable on a skateboard than walking. Photos by Jon Spitzer
verb form to describe the act of skateboarding. “If it doesn’t humble you, you aren’t doing it right.” It is in his last body of published work, “SUFFERLOVE,” that Zane demonstrated his capacity for artistic expression at its most creative level. The mixed media publication was issued in conjunction with the release of his video pro part from his sponsor, Heroin Skateboards. From cover to cover, Zane spent hundreds of hours in the family home over the past year creating, animating, cutting,
pasting, manipulating, and scanning every inch of every page. If he wasn’t doing it, he was thinking about it. His character is defined as humble, kind, compassionate and loyal. He was also playful and silly, and naturally allowed and encouraged people to be their most authentic self. Each quality is palpable to family and friends and those whose lives he touched. The outpouring of condolences from around the world are evidence that he had a positive impact on humanity. From Zane’s sixth
grade teacher, mentors, and friends to those who never met him but were inspired by his skateboarding, his family continues to receive gestures of support and love. Some are from the kids he recently taught to skate in an afterschool program, those whose skateboards he signed and some from people he considered chosen family. Zane gave all of himself to skateboarding. But he was incredibly selfless and generous. He loved being with kids, and read to students at his old preschool when he was in his early teens, volunteered as the videographer and photographer on a journey to East Africa with a local non-profit, Kids for Peace, before high school and traveled to Ireland with his parents to explore his ancestry. Any one of these experiences would be the defining moment in a young person’s life, but Zane’s trajectory was shaped by all of them. The 2013 San Dieguito Academy (SDA) graduate moved to San Francisco to attend school and skate. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from San Francisco State University in 2019, with a BA in Cinema and a History minor. Although he spent many months on the road filming, Zane and his best friend, Cheyenne Bartram, managed to spend every birthday together for the last 12 years. He was indeed loyal. The two met through their shared love of poetry in English class at SDA. When Zane asked her to
write a brief bio for him to be published in one publication or another, Cheyenne wrote in part: Zane Timpson is the TRUTH, and he really is out there- as an urgent artist, heartened community builder, and as an unfathomably unique and feverish skateboarder. Zane has spent his whole life-career as someone devoted to expression in its absolute- and is always traveling alongside the unyielding ability to dissipate all limits of the body. Zane’s accomplishments span the breadth of his talents. He was published in every major print skateboard magazine. A prolific artist who dubbed skateboarding “a violent ballet,” he said he was more comfortable on a skateboard than walking. His pro boards were released earlier this year. The celebration of this milestone was held at Leucadia Oaks Park with his parents by his side. Fitting for a hometown kid turned pro. He and Maddy were just a few weeks into driving their built out van, “Sylvia,” on the next big “AWAY.” “Zane was happy,” Kathy said, “he was happy.” “As he grew into adulthood, he became the man I always hoped he’d become,” Jeff said. “I’ll miss the creativity. There will be no new creations. Everything is just memories now.” Zane is known for saying, “Never forget to tell your friends you love them.” We love you Zane Timpson. All of us. Very much. Forever.

BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER
El Monte Drive residents want permit parking CROP
By Samantha Nelson .93
OCEANSIDE — Resi.93 dents4.17 on a stretch of El Monte Drive 4.28may have their wish for permitted parking granted sometime early next year. Earlier this year, a petition from El Monte Drive residents reached out to city staff requesting to implement a permit parking program on the road. About 75% percent of the residents affected by the program are in support of permits for on-street parking, though staff later noted that one of the houses that wasn’t in support is empty and another household is in support but did not sign the petition. The portion of El Monte Drive proposed for permit parking stretches from Foster Street and Carey Road, both of which already have permitted parking as well. Several other streets in the area have permit parking, including Grace, Hilldale, Cregar and Libby Streets as well as Crestline Drive. Staff opted not to pursue permit parking along all of El Monte Drive as the remaining portion of neighbors are strongly opposed. Residents in favor of permit parking say the program will help prevent people who don’t live on El Monte from parking there. Currently, overflow traffic from residents in the nearby Oceana Apartments and
other streets is preventing El Monte residents from parking on their own street. “It’s been a long time for us as residents on El Monte,” said James Stewart. “For six years we’ve been dealing with this.” The outside resident parking has also led to other issues for the residents of El Monte, including people loitering outside their homes, leaving trash behind and things being stolen from their properties. Stewart said some people will park on El Monte and linger for several hours drinking alcohol — and sometimes using other illicit substances. Resident and neighbor Elizabeth Krakowski said she has found both beer bottles and needles in her front yard. She has also had things stolen from her front porch and installed cameras around her property in response. “It just concerns me about the kind of neighborhood I’m living in,” she said. “I fear living alone.” As proposed, the program will limit the street to only permitted parking between the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. every day. Each household can take up to three permits with an annual fee of $15 per permit. Up to 20 temporary guest permits can be issued as well.

REGION — The UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of California invested $1.5 million to community-based programs intended to reduce health disparities and improve health equity in San Diego County, it was announced Tuesday. “The challenges facing San Diego and the state disproportionately impact communities of color, and the path to sustainable solutions is best achieved through building community relationships with outstanding organizations whose missions closely align with ours,’’ said Kevin Kandalaft, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of California. “We are proud to collaborate with passionate and driven organizations toward the expansion and delivery of accessible health care.” The funding will go toward initiatives at 17 San Diego organizations, including Interfaith Community Services, Champions for Health, Chicano Federation of San Diego County, San Diego County Promotores Coalition, La Maestra Community Health Centers, Oceanside Unified School District, San Diego Rescue Mission, TrueCare and Father Joe’s Villages, among others. Un ite d He a lt hc a re Community Plan of California intends to collaborate with the local organizations to target specific population health issues, including “housing insecurity and homelessness, access to primary care services, health equity training, youth-specific services, school-based services and mental health supports and mobile care capabilities,” a statement from the community plan read.

Del Mar resident wins Nobel Prize Professor’s work solved mysteries of sensing touch, temps By Tigist Layne
DEL MAR — A Del Mar resident and Scripps Research professor was recently awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for groundbreaking research surrounding how humans sense temperature and touch. A professor in the Dorris Neuroscience Center at Scripps Research in La Jolla, Dr. Ardem Patapoutian’s scientific breakthroughs were largely made at the Scripps Research lab. He shares the prize with Dr. David Julius of UC San Francisco. The Nobel Prize com-
mittee highlighted Patapoutian’s discoveries of receptors for temperature and touch, research that solved a long-standing mystery of how the body senses touch and other mechanical stimuli. “The breakthrough by Patapoutian led to a series of papers from his and other groups, demonstrating that the Piezo2 ion channel is essential for the sense of touch,” the Nobel committee wrote. “Moreover, Piezo2 was shown to play a key role in the critically important sensing of body position and motion, known as proprioception.” Patapoutian received his award last week during a ceremony at the National Academies’ home near UC Irvine. Typically, Nobel Prize ceremonies are

held in Stockholm, Sweden, but the foundation decided to honor the laureates in their home countries due to COVID-19 issues. “Oftentimes, these prizes are given to one or two people, but I want to emphasize that there is a whole field of people working in this area,” Patapoutian said about the honor. “Specifically in my lab, there’s a big group of young, enthusiastic, smart scientists, graduate students and postdocs who actually do the work. I share this with all of them, of course.” Patapoutian, 54, an Armenian-American who was born in war-torn Lebanon, came to the U.S. in 1986 where he began his career as a biochemist and later joined Scripps. He studied chemistry
at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon, then went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in molecular, cellular and developmental biology from UCLA. He earned his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Technology. “Dr. Patapoutian, together with Dr. Julius, unlocked one of the mysteries of life, how do we sense temperature and pressure,” said Peter Schultz, president and CEO of Scripps Research. “The Nobel Prize is a wonderful recognition of these discoveries. I have followed Ardem’s career closely since he first came to Scripps Research and can say that he is an extraordinary scientist, mentor, and colleague and a wonderful person.”

But even the kids who end up on crutches for a while relish that handful of days when they get to be a minor celebrity. Everyone wants to hear their story.

Man selling forged art gets 3 years
Santa Fe Christian seniors raise money for custodian By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — An Escondido man who pleaded guilty to a federal wire fraud charge for selling $1.1 million of forged art he claimed was created by acclaimed artist Richard Hambleton was sentenced Dec. 10 to three years in prison. Jason Harrington, 38, admitted to selling forgeries to at least 15 galleries and individuals between 2018 and 2020, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors allege Harrington gave prospective buyers letters from people who said they obtained the artworks, in which they claimed to have received the pieces from Hambleton himself. On one occasion, Harrington had a person speak directly with a buyer and make similar claims about obtaining art from Hambleton. Harrington also photoshopped pictures to make it seem like the people who obtained the artworks personally knew or met with Hambleton, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Hambleton, who died in 2017, was known in part for his “Shadowman” paintings.
SOLANA BEACH — After a beloved custodian’s truck was destroyed by a fire, two students at Santa Fe Christian Schools started a fundraiser to replace it, raising thousands of dollars in just a few days. A fire started under the hood of Clemente Mejia’s truck on Friday, Dec. 3, while he was working inside the school. Santa Fe Christian seniors Sandy Cameron and Dante Rotchford heard about what happened and decided to start a GoFundMe to replace Mejia’s truck. The fundraiser titled “Help us replace Clemente’s truck!” received more than $32,000 for Mejia in less than three days, with more than 240 people donating to the cause. “Mr. Mejia does so much for our school and we are so appreciative of his years of service supporting us. We want to do something to help him through this unfortunate situation and help to replace his truck,” the GoFundMe page reads. “Please consider contributing to this truck replacement fund so he knows how much we love and support him.” According to the school, Mejia has been a custodian and groundskeeper at Santa Fe Christian for more than 25 years. He is described by students and faculty as be-

Fe Christian podcast. Just hours after news spread about Mejia’s truck, Rotchford and Cameron, with help from faculty and staff, created the GoFundMe that same day. Over the weekend, students, parents, staff, alumni and members of the community donated to the cause. On Monday, Dec.
6, Mejia was presented with the good news at a school assembly where he thanked the students and the community for all that they had done. “It could have been anyone’s car, but it just makes it so much more special that we all could help Clemente, knowing the impact that he’s had in our
community,” said Rotchford, a multi-sport athlete for the Eagles. A spokesperson for Santa Fe Christian said the school would be working with a local dealership to purchase a truck for Mejia. Any extra funds will go toward paying for increased auto insurance, registration, etc.

Having your carnitas and eating it too water spot chris ahrens
he two things I remember most about my first trips to Baja in the early to mid ’60s are the waves and the food. These were weekend adventures in my friend Dave’s ’54 Ford wagon that he paid 100 bucks for, a bargain even with four bald tires and no spare. Without knowing exactly where we were going, we drove until the gas gauge registered half a tank and pulled over to sleep on the beach or the side of the road for the night. More weekends than not we feasted on the point waves of San Miguel, Stacks, 3-Ms, or K-38 before mowing down meals consisting of either carne
asada, fish tacos or whole lobster. If memory serves, the price of even the best meal was about two American bucks. Considering gas was less than 30 cents a gallon at the time and that we paid nothing for lodging, our luxury Baja vacation cost less than five bucks a day, or roughly the cost of a gallon of gas in our time. On one trip we got hooked into carnitas, those finger-sized shredded pork tacos that we consumed by the dozen. After putting down a plateful of carnitas each, we surfed hard for a few hours, before returning to repeat our order. It was then the chef pulled a pig’s head, its watery eyes staring, listening with hairy ears, from beneath the counter and began carving.

tale that he broke both arms twice. His preferred method was falling out of trees. Over the years, whenever the story was told, he’d grin happily, so the experience can’t have been too terrible. In those days, casts were just white and made of heavy plaster, but my brother got to wear a red bandana for a sling and he scarcely had to bathe. He was the soul of coolness. You can still be cool today, though, and a great deal more comfy, in a lightweight, color-or-pattern-ofyour-choice fiberglass cast or a funky, Velcro-laced boot. My son chose a basic black cast. His sister chose a lighter color so that friends could sign it. It’s better than a yearbook. The halls of any given school are never without at least two kids in casts, and based on that, I would urge any premed student to consider orthopedics or, at least, X-ray technician.

Kids with any enthusiasm at all are likely to crash and burn at some point, especially if they play sports. Nobody likes pain, but if you have just a little luck, it won’t happen during any vacation days and it will involve your writing hand, requiring a definite rethinking of schoolwork. At the very least, it should get you out of some chores and someone else to carry your backpack. Every kid I’ve known with a broken bone found six weeks in a cast to be a small price to pay for that 15 minutes of fame and a lifetime of “I can top that” stories.

Carlsbad author releases second book in series Columnist, podcaster explores self-discovery, love By Tigist Layne
CARLSBAD — Local author, podcaster and newspaper columnist Ryan Woldt has just released the second book in his heartwarming “Eli and Jane” series. The novel, “Future Eli and Future Jane,” explores the realities of self-discovery through travel and unexpected love. The story began last year with “Eli and Jane,” a tale of two people who set out to find themselves but end up finding each other along the way. In the second book, the two meet up again, this time embarking on a journey together. “People who have been reading my books have been from all different age brackets… and it seems like each age bracket has kind of had a different experience, whether it was nostalgia for a time when things weren’t

Camel breeders enter their most beautiful animals with the hope of winning $66 million in prize money, but Botox injections, face-lifts and other cosmetic changes will not be tolerated this year. How, you ask, are those procedures implemented? Breeders might stretch the lips and noses of their camels, inject their heads or lips with Botox, inflate body parts with rubber bands and use fillers to relax their faces. “The club is keen to halt all acts of tampering and deception in the beautification of camels,” the Saudi Press Agency said.

The otters, apparently confused about who was who, attacked Spencer, pushing him to the ground and biting him around his feet and buttocks. “I was bitten 26 times in 10 seconds,” he said. “If it wasn’t for my friend, I don’t think I’d still be here.

NICE TRY A 50-year-old Italian dentist tried on Dec. 2 to dodge getting the COVID-19 vaccine but still gain a health pass by offering the health worker a silicone prosthetic arm for the jab, The Guardian reported. Italy recently cracked down on unvaccinated people at social, cultural and sporting events, so the man allegedly purchased a fake arm that may have cost him hundreds of euros.

their own journeys.” Woldt, a Carlsbad resident, graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire dreaming of becoming a writer. However, as the realities of life, money and responsibilities set in, he put that dream on hold. Woldt worked in the restaurant industry and various management positions as he and his wife moved from city to city before finally settling in San Diego. Then, a few years ago, Woldt and his wife finally paid off their student loans and discovered a new sort of freedom, one that allows forgotten dreams to flourish. “My hope is that when people read it, what they’re processing is that there’s all these moments in life that we go through, and how we view them in the future may not be the same as the way we’re viewing them now at the moment, it’s just like this moment of perspective,” Woldt said. In both novels, Woldt pulled ideas from things he
knows and places he’s been. As someone who is very familiar with traveling, he was able to draw inspiration from his own life. However, Woldt made clear for those who were wondering: he is not Eli and his wife is not Jane. When asked about a possible third book to the series, Woldt said there will be a third and final piece to the Eli and Jane story. He also looks forward to writing more books, while furthering his coffee podcast, “Roast! West Coast.” “What I’ve learned is to not be so harsh on myself, not to be so judgmental, like I have to be at a certain point in my life or at a certain status or a certain thing,” Woldt said. “What matters is I’m experiencing things and continually adding to the story that my wife and I are building together.” Woldt also writes a weekly craft beer and beverage column for The Coast News, “Cheers! North County,” featuring local brewers, distillers and professionals in the beverage industry.

The theft, a felony, took place in Transylvania County, North Carolina, at Sospiro Ranch. Hsiung said he stole the kid because he thought it was suffering and might face a cruel death, but the court was not entertaining his “rightto-rescue” defense. In fact, Judge Peter Knight sustained so many objections by the prosecution during Hsiung’s opening statement that he wasn’t able to finish it. Curtis Burnside, owner of Sospiro Ranch, said NipNap, the baby goat’s mother, “cried for days and was beside herself looking for her lost baby.” [Berkeleyside, 12/8/2021]

New shuttle offers trip to LAX and back By Staff
CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce has announced a new way to travel between Carlsbad and the Los Angeles Airport. The program, called CarlsbadtoLAX.com, aims to get travelers from North County to Los Angeles International Airport, or LAX, faster than train or bus service and in a more cost-effective manner than rideshare, rental car or driving and parking. The 14-passenger shuttle vans also offer passenger WiFi. There are currently four daily trips (two in the morning and two in the afternoon) to and from LAX. All trips depart from the Carlsbad Palomar Airport. Prices start at $41. Make reservations at (888) 501-0854 and with the CVALAX30 promotional code, get 30% off the standard fare. al worker tossed a package onto Vera and Donald Rideaux’s front porch — then pulled away in his vehicle, hitting the Rideauxs’ van, “and he kept backing the truck up, back and forth, back and forth, pulling my car at the same time,” Donald said.

GIVE THE GIFT of rosemary cashews. Courtesy photo
Rosemary cashews for holiday snacking By Donna Erickson
I’m nuts about nuts. All year-round. I try to keep a bowl of fresh, shelled California almonds replenished and within easy reach on the kitchen counter for a grab and go snack. And thanks to my Georgia-raised friend, I have a stash of tasty pecans for tossing on salads and desserts. For the holidays, our tastes shift to cashews, and this easy recipe that makes them, well, more festive. The addition of fresh rosemary and cayenne pepper is unexpected and always gets raves. Here’s our family version, which calls for your kids’ assistance. Let them take charge of pulling the fresh rosemary leaves off the stems before you mince the fragrant herb with a sharp knife. Heat up the nuts in the oven and the remaining steps come together in minutes. Double the recipe for holiday gift-giving. Instead of filling cellophane food bags, use recycled clearglass jars. Your kids might want to make it whimsical and reminiscent of a snow globe scene by layering the seasoned cashews in the bottom third and adding a cute foil-covered chocolate snowman or ornament on top of the cashews. Anchor
sprigs of rosemary upright to mimic pine trees, screw on the lid and add a tag. For an extra gift, tie a spoon to the jar for scooping up the flavorful treat. ROSEMARY CASHEWS 3 cups roasted, unsalted cashews 1 heaping tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon salt 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) 1. Heat oven to 350 F. 2. Spread the cashews in one layer on a cookie sheet and bake for about 6 minutes, or until warm and lightly toasted. 3. Combine the rosemary, brown sugar, salt, melted butter and cayenne pepper (if you wish an extra kick) in a large bowl. When the cashews are heated, immediately pour them into the bowl with the spice butter mixture. Toss thoroughly. 4. Cool and serve, or store in an airtight container up to two weeks. NOTE: If you prefer, substitute 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup for 1 tablespoon brown sugar.

eeting with the South O Brewing team days before their grand opening, it was clear that they had trepidations. Were they ready? Would anyone come? Could they open a neighborhood brewery? On Dec. 4, they realized their anxieties were all for naught. Their grand opening was a success as neighbors and beer enthusiasts showed up en masse. That is great news for South O Brewing co-founders Trevor Whitehead and Joel Steinmetz, as well as head brewer, Maurey Fletcher (formerly of Golden Coast Mead). During a recent interview, they generously shared their story and beers with us. It was immediately clear that their primary goal is to represent the history and culture of South Oceanside. As Whitehead explained, they wanted the brewery to be “sort of a love letter [to Oceanside], a place locals could be proud of.” They met with the Oceanside Historical Society to learn about the historical significance of their community and to collect images from decades past to decorate the brewery. Art, maps and photographs from South Oceanside’s past give the venue an authentic, endless summer vibe but also make it feel welcoming. It’s a working brewery, yet features seating and space to allow groups to gather. The patio opens up to the Coast Highway with the beach just blocks away. We asked what inspired Whitehead and Steinmetz to make this business venture now–with all the uncertainties of COVID. “[The decision] may have come out of the sheer boredom that was COVID,” Steinmetz answered, half-jokingly. They were homebrewing in Whitehead’s garage which allowed them to experiment and rework recipes. “Well, you know how this goes,” Steinmetz continued. “One night you have too many and you end up thinking we could run a business doing this.” Whitehead interjected, “We thought, ‘Sure we could do this. We could be a real brewery’…and the next day

we woke up and asked, ‘Are we still doing this?’” When the opportunity to open up in the iconic Oceanside College of Beauty building came along, they took it. Just blocks from their own homes–and the neighbors who had been enjoying a lot of free beer– they built a brewery honoring South O. The story’s an intriguing one and can be heard in its entirety on our podcast, but none of it would matter if the beers were not up to San Diegan standards. Nothing to worry about on that point. Bringing in Fletcher as head brewer helped them scale up production, finetune recipes and add some new beers to their menu. Fletcher shares the founder’s vision of serving true-to-style beers with a few twists available. One twist, a porter ale, Tremont, inspired by Turkish Delight. Another, Ditmar, an Australian Sparkling Ale weighing in at a light 3.6%. Many of their beers are named after streets in the community around them. Other beers, such as Graves House West Coast IPA and Beach Club Blonde are named after iconic Oceanside landmarks or neighborhoods. Every beer we sampled, which is to say all the beer, proved excellent. We have attended soft openings and grand openings and chosen not to comment on the beers knowing that brewers are still figuring out brewing at scale in the early days. That was not the case here. Two beers, in particular, stole the show: St. Malo
Czech Pilsner and Horne New England IPA. These were as good of beers as we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy in our years of brewery touring and podcasting. St. Malo, brewed with floor-malted Bohemian and Munich malts, received our highest praise — a Shawshank beer. “Historically beers exist because somebody did something great, and [we] owe it to them to recreate and replicate the styles,” Fletcher said. For IPA lovers, South O offers a number of beers but our team favorite was Horne NEIPA. Brewed with Galaxy, Centennial and Mosaic hops, Horne NEIPA was full of tropical flavor but with a dialed back bitterness. Unlike the palate wreckers of yesteryear, Horne NEIPA was a crushable, refreshing beer, balanced and flavorful. No worries for those who love West Coast IPAs. The Graves
House IPA offered all the bitterness and citrusy goodness expected of the style. Back to the South O Brewing Grand Opening. Live music, food trucks and plenty of people. Bicyclers rolled in off the Coast Highway and neighbors strolled in filling the space. It did indeed feel like a community celebration. Everyone had a favorite beer already, we asked. South O Brewing has a vision and they are seeing it come true right from day one. Cheers!

San Diego Bay wine festival delivers on ‘awesome’ promise taste of wine frank mangio
he San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival is not just any wine and food festi-
In 2019, USA Today named the four-day event the winner for the Best General Food Festival in the U.S. This year, Michelle Metters, who founded the festival 17 years ago, advertised “Arrive at Awesome” for the festival and delivered on her promise during last month's festival. With VIP media passes in hand, Senior Editor Frank Mangio and I had a great time attending the event. The Great Decant took place on Friday with over 120 wineries from around the world, including San Diego, Temecula, Paso Robles, Napa Valley and surrounding areas, Oregon, Washington and France’s Louis Latour that dates back to 1797. I knew we were in for a great evening after our first tasting with Sonoma’s third-generation Sangiacomo Family Vineyards

them was Benchmark Wine Group, which specializes in hard-to-find vintage luxury wines. BWG was pouring a heavenly “Cain Concept” '04 Bordeaux from Napa Valley. After BWG, it was up and away to the VIP section that included some heavy hitters, such as Chateau Montelena pouring an estate cabernet sauvignon (2001) and chardonnay (2011). Also in the VIP section was another great pinot —Willamette Valley Vineyards Bernau Block Estate 2018 Pinot Noir. The Bernau Block was a classical Oregon dry, muscle pinot with cherry on the nose and palate, along with a splash of cola and smooth finish. I love how Willamette Valley Vineyards started
over 30 years ago with vines in Christmas tree planters hand-watered with garden hoses. Next to Willamette Valley Vineyards was the ReCork Recycling booth. As wine lovers, many of us don’t think twice about pulling corks out of bottles and later tossing them in the trash. ReCork’s program provides a way to produce a variety of everyday products such as shoe soles as an integral part of the continued retention of CO2. They provided attendees with envelopes to send corks back with free postage. On the way out of the VIP section, I enjoyed Stringer Vineyards from Napa Valley under owner and winemaker Casey Stringer’s leadership. The sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, Syrah, Napa
cabernet sauvignon, and especially the Howell Mountain cabernet sauvignon, earned them a well-deserved location in the VIP Section. We made our way back to the main floor to the Paso Robles winery section. Justin was spoiling guests with “Isosceles” red blend, Niner’s “Fog Catcher” cabernet sauvignon, Austin Hope with their cabernet sauvignon and red blends, and Daou Family Estates with their reserve chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. Great showing, Paso! The Wine and Food Festival kicked off on Saturday. Brandt Beef highlighted the food tastings by featuring five San Diego restaurants (Flamingo Deck, Ranch 45, Rancho Valencia, Starlite and Thorn Brewery).

Flamingo Deck edged out the others by a nose with their braised short ribs served with Milanese saffron risotto and a refreshing iced hot chocolate with mint and bourbon. I expanded my list of favorites from “The Great Decant,” adding Howell Mountain’s “Beatty Ranch” (‘17) reserve zinfandel, cabernet franc (‘17), and cabernet sauvignon (‘17) to my list. Russian River’s “Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones” (‘17) pinot noir was another for my tally along with Jordan Vineyards’ latest releases of the cabernet sauvignon (‘17), chardonnay (‘19), and non-vintage “Jordan Cuvée.” As we were finishing up the day, we had a chance to visit with local Temecula Valley vineyards, including Wilson Creek, South Coast, and Falkner, as well as San Diego wineries Burtech, San Pasqual Valley, Koi Zen, Mermaid Valley and Fallbrook vineyards. The festival concluded with Sunday’s Taco TKO competition. History was made when SeaCo Catch rocked the taco competition receiving both the Judges’ and People’s Choice awards, a festival first. Their plant-based, organic, gluten-free fÿsh taco received 371 votes, earning SeaCo first place, the title of San Diego’s most awesome taco and a $500 prize.

Crew at Herman Cook VW dishes on their favorite spots lick the plate david boylan
s the previous owner of a Volkswagen Dasher station wagon in college, I’m a big fan of the brand and our iconic local dealership, Herman Cook Volkswagen in Encinitas. I recently connected with the group after they decided to power the dealership with solar installed by my day job employer, Stellar Solar. Those meetings led to some fun conversations about everything from the history of the dealership, the cool vehicles they have sold over the years including their amazing new electric cars, and of course the evolution of the local food scene with Connor Cook, general manager and third-generation Cook VW co-owner. Given those synergies, I extended an invitation to Connor and some of his staff to have some fun and take over this week’s column. Jojo Bot Sales consultant
“I love the comfort food they offer, particularly the open face turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. It reminds me of a coffee shop we had growing up. “The family-owned Q’ero Peruvian is another favorite and right across the street. Their Crispy Yuka spears and the famous Chicha Morada — a traditional Peruvian drink made of purple corn boiled with cinnamon cloves and fruit — are a must. “Swami’s Cafe is my goto for a healthy Swami’s veggie mix juice, açaí bowl and California scramble stacked full of veggies, avocado and bacon.” I’m with you on all those places Jojo, nice picks!

Sales Manager Jon Thompson lives in Carlsbad but gravitates to Cardiff. “My favorite spot in Cardiff is Besta-Wan Pizza. I did not know Besta-Wan was more than just pizza until I experienced this place for myself. My favorite choices are the ‘Banks’ from the pizza menu and the French Dip and sometimes I throw in a riff and go for the Chili Plate. “Also in Cardiff is VG Donut & Bakery. It’s nice to see the entire baking operation while you are waiting in line and it’s worth the wait. “If I had to choose one final meal, my last supper so to speak, it would be the Cowboy Bone-In Ribeye at Pacific Coast Grill. This 18oz steak combined with the fingerling potatoes and bacon-wrapped asparagus is my idea of the perfect meal. I ask for the bone to go which provides hours of enjoyment for Roxy, my Chiweenie.” Thanks for the tip on the ribeye Jon, it is now on my shortlist! Allison Mote Office admin
“My all-time favorite place to eat is Tony’s Jacal. It has been there forever, and I never stray from the “a su gusto,” which means
“as you like it,” with a turkey taco and a cheese enchilada. Whether you’re sitting inside or out on the patio you will feel like you’re vacationing in Mexico. While you’re there, grab yourself a pitcher of margaritas, they are classic and refreshing. “Another favorite is Borrelli’s Pizza & Italian Food in Encinitas. I grew up going there every Friday night. My friends would want to come to my house because they knew that was what was for dinner! Trust me, the white broccoli pizza is garlicky and delicious, and includes a vegetable! “Lastly, Sushi Huku in San Marcos. I know everyone has their go-to sushi place, but this is hands down the best. It’s always fresh and it’s a fun atmosphere.

DEC. 17, 2021
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. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The upcoming holiday season gives the Big Cat much to purr about. Relationships grow stronger, and new opportunities loom on the horizon, just waiting to be pounced on. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A changing situation brings conflicting advice about how to go forward with your holiday plans. Your best bet: Make the decision you feel most comfortable with.
TRIVIA TEST ANSWERS
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Holiday plans get back on track after some confusion about the direction you expected to take. A potentially troublesome money matter needs your immediate attention. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your holiday preparations are on track. 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. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Don’t put off making decisions about this year’s holiday celebrations, despite the negative comments you’ve been getting from several quarters. Do it NOW! 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. BORN THIS WEEK: You are respected for your honesty and loyalty. You make friends slowly — but with rare exceptions, they’re in your life forever. © 2021 King Features Synd., Inc.
