Grandview bluff collapse lawsuit to begin discovery

Ruling

ENCINITAS — After more than two years of delays and procedural wrangling, a Vista judge’s ruling last month has advanced a wrongful death lawsuit into the discovery phase, allowing plaintiffs to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the deaths of three women killed in a

bluff collapse at Grandview Beach.

The lawsuit, filed against the City of Enci-

nitas, State of California, Leucadia Seabluffe Village Community Association and Seabreeze Manage -

ment Company, alleges negligence and dangerous property conditions played a role in the deaths of Ju-

lie Davis, 65, her 35-yearold daughter Anne Davis Clave, both of Encinitas, and Davis’ 62-year-old sister Elizabeth Charles of San Francisco.

The Davis family filed suit just a few weeks after a roughly 30-foot hunk of “urbanized” cliff broke loose and crashed onto the beach below, fatally crushing several victims underneath multi-ton sandstone rock.

The lawsuit argues that years of groundwater

Janks found guilty

VISTA — A jury found Jade Janks of Solana Beach guilty of first-degree murder on Wednesday in the death of her former stepfather Thomas Merriman after a day of deliberation.

The verdict concludes a 10-day trial at the Superior Court North County courthouse in Vista, where jurors heard from nearly 20 witnesses and experts. Jurors went into deliberation Tuesday morning.

Janks faces 25 years to life in state prison when she is sentenced, which is currently set for April 3.¬

Merriman, 64, was found dead under a pile of cardboard boxes in his driveway on Jan. 2, 2021, with the cause of death determined to be acute intoxication by zolpidem, a sleep aid also known as Ambien.

The District Attorney’s Office charged Janks with murdering Merriman, the co-founder of the Butterfly Farms in Encinitas, arguing that she drugged, suffocated and strangled him on New Year’s Eve 2020 after picking him up from the hospital.

In closing statements on Monday, Deputy District Attorney Jorge Del

HAT’S THE SPIRIT

New O’side council members sworn in

OCEANSIDE — Two new City Council members were officially sworn into office at a recent special council meeting.

On Dec. 14, former Oceanside Unified School Board Trustee Eric Joyce is the new representative for the city’s District 1 on the City Council and retired fire chief Rick Robinson took over as District 2’s representative. They replace Kori Jensen and Christopher Rodriguez, respectively.

Joyce served on the OUSD school board for four years before opting to run for City Council instead of a board reelection. He took his oath with his two young children by his side on the and was met with an enthusiastic applause from the audience.

“I want to thank my family, who are always standing with me in the best way, calling me in at every moment to make sure I’m a better human every day,” Joyce said. “To my Oceanside Unified family, it has been an incredible journey with you and the work that we did with the school district that I know you will carry on is something in the city we need.”

Continuing the theme, Joyce said that all of Oceanside is like a family that he will continue to serve in his new capacity, which he called “an honor of a lifetime.”

“Like every family we have some conflict from time to time, but we are bound by love and a shared fate,” he said. “We have tough decisions in the years ahead — will we succumb to the stories of other cities where they become a new trendy place and the people who built the city who make it eclectic, diverse and beautiful are pushed out? Or can we plot a deliberate course — one that balances

economic growth with people’s well-being, balances safety with compassion for others, balances economics with our need for community? I believe we can do these things, I believe our family can grow closer with good conversation and grace and I look forward to doing this work with you.”

In a symbolic gesture, Robinson was sworn in by Fire Chief Dave Parsons, who succeeded Robinson after his retirement over the summer.

Over the past 45 years, Robinson has sworn an oath of office in various roles — as a sailor in the Navy, as a firefighter, paramedic, arson investigator and as fire chief — but this is the first time he took an oath of office as an elected official.

“I take this oath not as something I achieved but rather what you the voters have done through the ballot box,” Robinson said. “For your support I’m forever grateful. I will serve not only for those who voted for but on behalf of all who reside and work and visit our city to the best of my ability.”

Robinson also said he is excited to once again serve with Oceanside city staff as well as the mayor and his fellow council members.

“I’m excited to collaborate with the mayor and my fellow council to find solutions to some of our most difficult challenges: improving public safety, managing homelessness, keeping our beaches, increasing housing availability, traffic improvement, supporting and expanding our business

community, improving and maintaining recreation facilities, and maintaining and improving public infrastructure,” he said. “All of those will require a shared sense of purpose, sound policy development, wisdom in our decision making, and the best efforts of city staff.”

Like Joyce, Robinson thanked his family as well as the outgoing council members. He also thanked his election opponent, Daniel Dominguez, for running a campaign “that focused on the issues.”

Mayor Esther Sanchez was set to appoint Robinson as deputy mayor at the Dec. 21 council meeting.

Green resolutions for 2023

As one year ends and another begins, many of us like to make resolutions or set goals for the new year.

As there’s no more pressing issue than our impact on the environment, here are some ideas — inspirations, perhaps — for achievable 2023 sustainability resolutions.

Do a waste audit at home or work. See what you’re throwing away each week, and check what might be reused or recycled instead of disposed of.

Single-use plastic disposables are prime culprits: bottles, straws, plastic sandwich bags and plastic razors.

You can switch to reusable alternatives or investigate local recycling opportunities.

An increasing number of strategies look to recycle waste that would previously have gone to the landfill. See if there are drop-off spots near you.

Switch to rechargeable batteries wherever possible. Battery waste is especially difficult to deal with in an environmentally responsible fashion.

This is particularly relevant for parents, guardians or those buying for children, where every second toy seems to require at least three AAA batteries.

Cut down on your paper towel use. If every U.S. household used just one less 70-sheet paper towel roll each year, more than half a million trees would be saved.

And that’s not taking into account the water required to make paper towels — estimated at around 20,000 gallons for a ton of paper.

Reduce your use, and switch to eco-friendly toilet paper where you can, too.

Just as auditing your household or business waste is a useful exercise to see

what could be recycled or replaced, auditing your water use can reveal important potential efficiencies.

Could you benefit from doing one less dishwasher load a week or using cold water for your laundry?

In your garden, if you have one, could you introduce drought-tolerant plants or utilize smart irrigation?

learn about natural lifecycles.

Even if growing food is out of the question, you can encourage wildlife with a bug hotel or bird feeder and discover more about the nature around us.

Volunteering is a great way to give a truly valuable resource: your time.

Find a local organization helping to make a dif-

DAs urge transparency in early release system

There is nothing most California convicts want more than to be released before their sentence is up, even before they have earned enough good-conduct credits to qualify for early release.

Across California’s prison system, many inmates are getting their wish, thanks to a steady program of early releases for prisoners whose offenses are legally deemed “nonviolent,” even though that category can include things like human trafficking, rape of an unconscious person and domestic violence.

This is not parole, which must be approved by appointive panels operating independently of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

This is arbitrary action aimed at emptying the prison system as much as Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration can get away with under the guise of reducing the risks of prisons becoming super-spreader sites for COVID-19.

While it’s true that convicts are often kept at close quarters with one another, both in cells and on exercise yards, masking and vaccines usually can prevent major outbreaks of the dangerous virus.

One lengthy investigation by CBS-TV concluded the early release process — conducted under emergency regulations — has been both dangerous and arbitrary, conducted entirely out of the public eye.

It has even seen the release of prisoners who were denied parole for substantial cause.

It’s unknown whether those rules will automatically expire if the public emergency Newsom declared in spring 2020 ends in February, as the governor has promised.

california focus

and violent felons into our communities by reducing their sentences by as much as 50 percent puts the public in danger… Victims and their families deserve to be heard on how the (emergency) regulations might affect them and public safety in general.”

But the D.A.s never filed a formal court petition.

They have now asked CDCR to explain how it decides which prisoners to release early — “especially those who have not engaged in rehabilitation programs… This needs to stop now. This is not reform. It is an anti-transparent experiment that is gambling with public safety.”

Added Yolo County D.A. Jeff Reisig, “The public has a right to know what these people are doing to rehabilitate themselves.”

Meanwhile, legislators bent on cutting down the prison population and possibly closing some of the state’s most remote penitentiaries also passed a law in 2019 allowing early release of many inmates who committed felonies while juveniles, but were convicted as adults.

The D.A.s always objected to that law, known as SB 1391, saying it could free hundreds of dangerous prisoners. One they sometimes cite is Adrian Gonzalez of Santa Cruz, convicted on the basis of video evidence of raping and killing an 8-year-old neighbor girl and dumping her body in a trash bag.

Businesses and organizations can commit to upgrading their irrigation systems and introducing weather-based sensors, which ensure plants and lawns are neither undernor over-watered.

Shopping locally is an easy way to reduce your carbon footprint and supports small businesses near you.

Please be sure to look for retailers that source their products locally, where possible.

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or green yard space, investigate options for growing your own food.

See what fruits or vegetables might be feasibly cultivated.

You can save a little money, reduce transportation impacts and costs, and both kids and adults can

ference, whether through a clean-up program, a recycling initiative, a campaign to save important wildlife, or any sustainability or green issue you feel passionately about.

You could also raise funds for an eco charity to help increase awareness of environmental issues.

You don’t even need to do any of this in a particularly formal way, either.

You could make your voice heard by becoming an active participant in your workplace or school as a voice for change and sustainability, a champion if you will.

A.J. van de Ven is president and CEO of Carlsbad-based smart irrigation company Calsense and a board member of the nonprofit ECOLIFE Conservation.

As long as 18 months ago, 41 elected district attorneys from around the state filed a petition with CDCR asking for repeal of those regulations and the unpublicized releases.

That was even before the release of convicted domestic abuser Smiley Martin, the main suspect in last April’s mass shooting in Sacramento, which killed six.

Martin, authorities have said, was able to get out after serving just four years of a 10-year term despite a record of prison fights with other convicts because his original offense was legally considered nonviolent, allowing him to earn good-conduct credits faster than formally violent criminals.

Riverside County D.A. Mike Hestrin, one of the signers of the district attorneys’ petition, wrote that “Releasing dangerous

Because he was aged 15 years, 8 months at the time of his crime, he will be released in 2024, just nine years after the rape/ murder. If he had been tried as an adult, he could have gotten a 100-year sentence.

Considering how much national Republicans used fear of crime in the November 2022 election, the Democrats who control Sacramento might want to revisit SB 1391, whose toll in repeat crimes is sure to rise in coming years as more onetime juvenile felons are released.

For Democrats might just want to assure their continued domination of California politics by doing something to prevent Republicans from making crime a major future issue here, as they have elsewhere.

Encinitas City Council votes to appoint fifth member

— The Encinitas City Council will appoint its fifth member in January, instead of holding a special election for the seat, city officials decided last week.

In its meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 14, the newly sworn-in City Council voted 3-1 to appoint a replacement for new mayor Tony Kranz’s District 1 council seat. Kranz, Kellie Hinze and Joy Lyndes voted to appoint while new member Bruce Ehlers voted against the resolution.

The vacancy on the council was created in November when Kranz was elected to replace outgoing mayor Catherine Blake-

spear, who was elected to the state Senate.

Encinitas’ municipal code stipulates that city officials must appoint a new council member to fill a vacancy within 60 days. Otherwise, the city must hold a special election. With last week’s vote to appoint, interested persons will have until Jan. 10 to submit applications for the District 1 seat. The council will meet Jan. 18 to make a decision.

The city clerk’s office has not yet released a list of those who have applied for the District 1 vacancy. However, at least two candidates have already announced their intention to apply for the position. Alex Riley, a retired lifeguard of-

ficial who ran against Kranz for the seat in 2020, and Michael Blobe, who ran for mayor in 2022.

The majority cited cost and time as the primary factors for why they voted in favor of an appointment over an election. The city clerk, Kathy Hollywood, had estimated that a special election would cost Encinitas $250,000-$400,000.

Additionally, an election could not be held until May at the earliest, whereas an appointee could be sworn in as soon as February, Hollywood said at the meeting.

“From my perspective it’s important that we get someone into the seat and do in a way that makes the

most sense for the community, and importantly satisfies the majority of community,” Kranz said.

“The council is always in a position where they need to make their best assessment of what most people would want, and in this particular case my assessment is that most would want someone in the seat sooner than later and not spending hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

He added: “If we don’t have an election until May, and then it takes time to get the votes counted, it could realistically be into June that we actually have someone fill the vacancy.”

Kranz noted that the council would have to vote

on key issues, including a whole budget cycle and discussions about capital improvements, with just four members during that interval.

“It really would be good to have a new council person in place for those discussions — an election would mean putting the city’s business on hold in a way that is not good for District 1.”

Lyndes and Hinze — both appointees themselves who have since been elected — agreed. In addition to the concerns about cost and timeliness voiced by Kranz, Lyndes talked about how an election could actually be a discouragement to some qualified candidates in

seeking the office.

“I think that having a special election and making people go through that process would extremely limit the pool of people who are interested in coming here and participating in public service,” she said. “I think the overarching benefit is that we can get someone in who can help us pull the load forward and represent the Leucadia district fully as soon as possible.”

Conversely, Ehlers argued that the majority of Encinitas residents are in favor of holding a special election to fill the District 1 vacancy. He said that an appointment by the council

Light the Way for Kids with a year-end gift to Rady Children’s

There’s no better time to be a kid than during the holidays.

Fun with friends and family, sweet treats everywhere, hugs from grandma and grandpa and, of course, lots of presents.

The magic of the season can be hard to find for some families who are spending their holidays in the hospital, however. They are counting on Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego to be there, not only to provide life-saving medical care, but to deliver holiday cheer during a challenging time.

Parents Jamie and Joe know what it’s like to spend countless hours in a hospital room. When the San Diegans pass by Rady Children’s these days and look up to where their son, Joey, received life-saving care—not once, but twice—it’s no longer just a hospital. It’s a place of healing.

“Without having or knowing a sick child receiving care at Rady Children’s, it’s easy to drive by thinking it’s just another building,” Jamie said. “Having been there many nights at Joey’s bedside, we know this hospital is so much more. There are children inside fighting for their lives through every one of those windows and there are wonderful people helping provide them hope and healing.”

Born with Down syndrome, Joey has endured treatment for pulmonary hypertension and bravely battled leukemia—all before the age of 6. Unfortunately,

children diagnosed with Down syndrome bear a higher risk of developing pulmonary hypertension and later developing acute myeloid leukemia, a serious cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

Rady Children’s is a not-forprofit hospital that has been there through the decades for hundreds of families just like Joe, Jamie and Joey. Established as a polio hospital in 1954, Rady Children’s

has grown to be the largest children’s hospital on the West Coast and one of the nation’s top pediatric health care systems, serving more than 90 percent of the kids in the community. The Hospital is home to a team of world-class experts and caregivers, innovative research and the finest and most compassionate patient care.

Thankfully, Joe and Jamie could count on Rady Children’s to be there. And, in the spirit of the season, Rady Children’s is depending on the San Diego community to support kids spending their holidays and the new year in the Hospital. As 2022 draws to

close, now is the perfect time for donors to make a tax-deductible gift before the end of the year.

By joining the Hospital’s annual fundraising campaign, Light the Way, supporters can show kids and families that they aren’t alone. Light the Way ensures that sick and injured children have a holiday season -- and the promise of a new year -- to look forward to.

Light the Way features the Hospital’s signature seasonal events including outdoor ice skating at the Rady Children’s Hospital Ice Rink at Liberty Station; the iHeart Rady Children’s Giveathon featuring patients and their families sharing inspiring stories of hope and healing on the radio; and the annual Light the Way Parade of Lights put on for the hundreds of children who are spending the holidays in the hospital.

Of course, kids still need support once the holiday season is over. By giving in December, donors can make an investment in a healthy 2023 for San Diego’s children.

Portillo urged jurors to find Janks guilty of first-degree murder, reminding them of her alleged confessions to two witnesses, her “plan” referenced in text messages in the days leading up to his death and her lies to law enforcement about Merriman’s whereabouts.

“He was a real, breathing person that she took away,” Del Portillo said. “We know he had his issues, his conduct, but this trial is not about his conduct. He didn’t get a trial, he didn’t get the due process that Ms. Janks had. She was the judge, jury and executioner.”

Janks’ defense team claimed in their closing statement that there was no hard evidence to confirm the prosecution’s theory that Merriman was strangled or suffocated, and called into question the credibility of the two witnesses who testified about Janks’ alleged confessions.

Defense attorney Marc Carlos also said Janks panicked when she allegedly discovered her former stepfather dead in his car, as she testified in her version of events, and that she was simply afraid of being blamed.

“Ms. Janks loved her stepfather — she would have never hurt him. She panicked, and that’s why she’s here,” Carlos said. “But panic is not a crime, and speculation is not evidence.”

At the most, Carlos said, the jury should find Janks guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

***

Last week, Janks testified that she did not intentionally kill her stepfather, but found him dead in her car after bringing him home from the hospital on New Year’s Eve 2020 and hid his body out of panic.

According to Janks, she and Merriman lived together and had a close relationship until she moved out in her early 20s, and later reconnected when she moved into a home on South Nardo Avenue neighboring Merriman’s in April 2020. The two would see each other around once a week, and both lived there until Merriman’s death.

Merriman entered the hospital around mid-December 2020 with heart

issues, and Janks said she was checking in on him via phone every day and, at times, going over to clean his house.

While cleaning, she said she accidentally bumped the mouse to his computer and discovered something disturbing — a photo of breasts she recognized as her own, set as his desktop background.

She said she found what looked like “hundreds” more naked pictures of her as she searched his computer files.

“It was the most violating, just awful, gut-wrenching feeling ever. I felt sick … I couldn't even touch my own skin,” Janks said, adding that she believed he had obtained the private photos

from her old cameras, SD cards and laptop.

From there, Janks said she reached out to a man who she understood to work in private security named Alan Roach, who could not be contacted to testify during the trial.

Janks said she wanted Roach to stand guard while she showered because she felt “vulnerable” after finding the photos. Eventually, she said they worked out a plan where Roach would also confront her stepfather about the images and make sure he deleted them.

In the days leading up to his release from the hospital, Janks said she grew increasingly anxious about Merriman coming home, finding out she knew about the photos and possibly reacting aggressively. She confirmed that she kept a knife and a tarp by her bed.

Janks testified that after bringing Merriman home from the hospital on Dec. 31 following treatment for alcohol withdrawal symptoms, he took a gabapentin pill that was in her car.

He was also left alone in

her car with a bag of medications from the hospital while she stopped in a few stores in Solana Beach.

He then began to grow groggy and not make sense, and upon attempting to bring him out of the car at his home on South Nardo Avenue, he fell twice, leaving a scrape on his head and the back of his hand.

At that point, she said, a close friend and her boyfriend helped place Merriman into the back of Janks’ 4Runner, with the seats folded down so Merriman could lay comfortably with pillows and blankets.

Janks testified that after trying to get him back to the hospital and being unable to get him checked in and later being unable to get him out of the car, she ended up leaving him in her 4Runner overnight on New Year’s Eve.

This on its own was not uncommon, according to Janks, who noted previous occasions where Merriman would be highly intoxicated and “sleep it off” in her car after she picked him up. Usually, he would always wake up in the car within a few hours and walk the short distance back to his home.

“You pick up after Tom enough, you kind of pick your battles. I can’t carry him myself,” Janks said, recalling how she was often relegated to the role of his caretaker for many years.

That night, she said, she also poured whiskey on Merriman’s computer and

Further contributing to the collapse was the city’s use of shotcrete on the bluff’s surface, the installation of 10 non-native palm trees requiring consistent watering, and a failure to remove “invasive, non-native, water-laden ice plants” and replace them with “drought and salt-tolerant native plants,” the lawsuit states.

However, litigation was slowed by COVID-19 closures and hearing postponements. In January 2021, the judge sided with the Davis family, tossing out the city and state's “natural condition immunity” argument. If successful, the state law would have shielded both governing bodies from liability.

More recently, the city filed a motion for summary judgment — a request to end the case without a trial — alleging the family’s original attorney Benjamin Wagner did not meet statutory guidelines when initially filing claims with the city.

According to court documents, Wagner prepared 13 individual claims to be filed with the city clerk as required by state law. However, the claims were mistakenly sent to the city’s risk manager after a municipal employee gave Wagner’s office incorrect filing information.

Attorneys for the city argued for the case to be dismissed since the “plaintiffs failed to comply” with state law by delivering the claims to the wrong department. The judge denied the city’s motion, citing a previous ruling that “[t]he city cannot frustrate plaintiff’s attempt to comply with a statute enacted for its benefit and then assert noncompliance as a defense.”

“We’re very pleased with the summary judgment ruling,” said Zoe Littlepage, attorney for the Davis family. “It appears the city had a ‘gotcha’ moment where a lawyer called down asking how to file, and they misled him. We are all officers of the court. If you have statutory rules, you should follow them.”

Following this monthslong detour that required hours of depositions and investigation into the city’s bureaucratic misrepresentations about handling claims, Littlepage remains optimistic the case will move forward much more quickly in the discovery phase.

“Now that this procedural hiccup is over, we can start moving at a faster pace,” Littlepage said. “We are ready to start real discovery.”

Acknowledging the massive legal undertaking before her team, Littlepage plans to conduct depositions from eyewitnesses at the beach near the site of the collapse, including life-

guards and beachgoers. She anticipates the discovery phase to take another eight to 10 months of evidence gathering.

The Houston-based attorney emphasized the Davis family is not interested in a financial settlement and is looking forward to a civil trial.

“(A monetary award) is certainly not what they are asking for,” Littlepage said. “This case needs to go to trial, so the community can hear the evidence and the family can have a voice. They want things changed. A public trial is a great avenue for change.”

Collapse

According to the complaint and media reports, on the afternoon of Aug. 2, 2019, members of the Davis family met at Grandview Beach to celebrate Charles’ recent recovery from breast cancer. One of the victims, Anne Davis Clave, asked lifeguards where the family should set up on the beach, and the group was directed to set up underneath the cliff, the lawsuit states.

“(The Davis family) asked lifeguards where they should set up,” Littlepage said. “Lifeguards are sup-

posed to be trained to say, ‘Don’t set up near the bluff’s edge.’”

At approximately 2:53 p.m., a portion of the cliff collapsed onto the Davis family, burying several members under heavy sandstone blocks.

Pat Davis, husband of victim Julie Davis, could not lift the rocks off his wife and “dug a hole in the sand around her head to enable her to breathe,” per the lawsuit. The father then went to where his youngest daughter, Clave, was located and held her head in his lap while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

Clave, seated near her two young children when the collapse occurred, was extricated from the pile by first responders and later died in the hospital from severe blunt-force head trauma. Julie Davis was ultimately pulled from the heap and transported to the hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Elizabeth Charles, who was sitting next to her 18-year-old daughter, was killed after heavy sandstone boulders fragmented her body, some of which was never recovered, court documents say.

All of the children sur-

vived the event.

Emergency personnel from multiple nearby city fire departments, some equipped with shovels, surrounded the site after the collapse, The Coast News first reported. A yellow tarp lay over a large chunk of rock near the Davis family’s towels, beach chairs and umbrellas.

Then-acting City Manager Jennifer Campbell re-

leased a statement to The Coast News in 2019 attributing the collapse to “the natural erosion process characteristic of California beaches.”

Signs warning of unstable cliffs dot the area, including one visible from where the collapse occurred, and more signage was added in the wake of the accident. At the time of the incident, the city’s website warned of the potential for bluff failures and cautioned beachgoers to keep their distance from the increasingly fragile terrain.

“Please be aware that in most areas hiking near or directly on top of the bluffs is prohibited. It is also important for visitors to avoid standing or sitting directly underneath unstable bluffs since they may collapse,” the website read.

Bluff safety awareness efforts in the months and years following the collapse have had seemingly little impact on the public's grasp of the ongoing dangers at Grandview and other beaches along the San Diego County coastline.

In court filings, the Davis family shared a pho-

to taken one year after the fatal collapse depicting beachgoers sitting and laying directly under the same cliffs at Grandview in the “presence of lifeguards on duty — and totally unaware of the peril that surrounds them.”

The Coast News reached out to the city of Encinitas for comment on the litigation and any safety measures implemented at the northernmost portion of Leucadia State Beach since the incident.

“Due to pending litigation, the city has no comment,” a spokesperson said.

Ineed something sparkly.

If any gift-giving reader out there is breaking out in a sweat thinking I mean jewelry, I don’t. I don’t even mean a gift.

It’s the shimmering time of year and I find myself sadly reminiscing about my youth when this time of year meant an excuse to buy a new dress.

As I flipped through some Christmas catalogs, I found myself filled with longing for a real outfit — a gown, some shoes, a wrap — and a place to wear it.

Somewhere out there, in social circles that will never include me, women are buying these gorgeous things to wear during the holidays. They have galas to

small talk

attend and social standings to uphold. Nothing on my calendar requires more than a clean pair of jeans.

Most women will agree, there is nothing quite as delicious as sliding into a gown that makes you feel beautiful. You just know you’ll get a wolf whistle from your significant other.

And even if he is foolish enough not to notice how radiant you look, you will get that look from several other men at the party. That may even be the best part.

You know, and they know you know, that it is just seasonal flirting, but it can raise your self-esteem right through the roof. God bless the man confident enough to tell your husband he had no idea he had such a beautiful wife.

Meanwhile, life becomes a bit drab when you have no more occasions to get really dolled up. In high school and college, there was at least one each season.

But once we move into the marriage, children, and/ or career drill, most of us run out of opportunities to really make an entrance.

Sure you can throw your own party, but that has several obstacles. First, you can’t make an entrance at your own party. Next, it’s Southern California, home base for casual. You are just not going to see many tuxedos. Not even if we remind him that he looks like James Bond.

I’m lucky if I can get my husband to wear pants with belt loops, much less a cummerbund. Finally, it’s a little anticlimactic to get beautiful for those friends you see all the time.

What we are truly wishing for is to be Cinderella, that breathtaking woman no one can take their eyes off of. We want to hear whispers to our escort of, “Wow. Who’s your date?”

Ah well. I know there are clubs in New York and balls in La Jolla where this all still happens, but somehow my invitations got lost in the mail. It’s just as well. I’d have to get my furs out of the vault and my jewels out of the safety deposit box, which is really such a bother.

And besides, I simply couldn’t decide between the black, hand-beaded silk shantung and the bright red number dripping in sequins.

Instead, I believe I’ll be wearing my fabulous flannel with matching fuzzy slippers. Inside, however, I’ll be glittering.

Del Mar appoints new mayor Council to meet in person in 2023

DEL MAR — The figurative mayoral baton has been passed to a new Del Mar council member following the completion of Dwight Worden’s one-year term in the role.

Councilmember Tracy Martinez, who served as deputy mayor for the past year, was appointed as the city’s new mayor at the council’s Dec. 12 meeting. She will hold the seat for the next year.

Encinitas names department veteran as new fire chief

ENCINITAS — The city named Josh Gordon its newest fire chief during a Dec. 14 Encinitas City Council meeting.

In his new capacity, Gordon will oversee the Encinitas Fire and Marine Safety, Solana Beach and Del Mar fire departments.

“I am honored and humbled to have been asked to lead our Fire Department,” Gordon said. “I look forward to working with the entire department to meet the challenges that lie ahead.”

“The city is pleased to have hired its next fire chief from within,” City Manager Pamela Antil said. “Chief Gordon, who served the Encinitas community for over 12 years, has made his career with

us. I am confident in his ability to lead our fire department forward, as well as his long-term commitment to the job.”

Gordon has more than two decades in public service in both the public and private sectors.

He began his fire career in the Encinitas Fire Department as a firefighter in 2010 and has held every rank – firefighter, engineer, captain, battalion chief, and most recently, deputy chief.

Gordon also holds a master’s degree from Colorado State University – Global in organizational leadership with a specialization in project management.

He and his wife, Lindsey, of over 20 years, have two children, a son Kolby and a daughter Kendyl.

Gordon also has deep family ties to the community. He grew up in Encinitas and spent most of his youth in the same house on Gardena Road near San Dieguito High School.

Gordon attended Cardiff Elementary, Ada Harris Elementary, and Oak Crest Middle schools. He graduated from La Costa Canyon High School.

“The fire department is made up of brave, courageous people who do everything they can to keep our communities safe and protected. I am committed to build upon this legacy of excellence,” Gordon said.

Gordon’s appointment follows Fire Chief Mike Stein’s retirement at the beginning of November.

Oceanside raises developer in-lieu fee to $20 per square foot

city is raising its in-lieu fee from just under $9 to $20 per square foot for developers who want to opt out of building affordable housing over the next two years.

has a $32 fee.

Unlike other cities where mayors are elected, Del Mar’s two highest vote-getting council members from the past election serve as mayor on a yearly rotating basis. Councilmember Dan Quirk was selected as the new deputy mayor.

The council also adopted a resolution honoring Worden for his mayoral service. Martinez thanked him for his mentorship to her and for always remaining clear-headed, even during discussions of contentious issues.

“I think that’s just your personality, but I've seen you under pretty extreme pressure moments, either by things going on within discussions on the council or with the public, and you’re always collected, polite and very evenkeeled, and I appreciate that,” Martinez said.

Worden thanked the council and city staff for their work over the past year, and reminded the council to stay focused on pressing, still-unresolved issues including the city’s housing element and issues with the California Coastal Commission.

“I recognize that on some issues I have been in the minority on this council, and that’s okay. It’s the job of the minority, at least as I’ve seen it, to try to express my viewpoints constructively, to look for compromise and agreement where we can get it, and once the council majority makes a decision, for me to implement the decision even if it's not the decision that I would make,” he said.

Worden and fellow councilmember Terry Gaasterland were also sworn into office after being elected to new City Council terms in the November election. They were the top two vote-getters in a three-person race over challenger Steve Quirk, the twin brother of Dan Quirk.

Aside from a new mayor, other changes are coming to council in the new year. After holding

The update to the inlieu fee cost was part of a general update to the city’s inclusionary housing policy, which serves as a tool for the city to help meet its regional and state housing goals.

The policy will continue to require developers building residential projects with three or more units to reserve 10% of those units for low- or moderate-income residents; however, developers can opt to pay an inlieu fee as an alternative.

In-lieu fees can be used by the city to build affordable housing projects like Greenbrier Village or Mission Cove.

City staff originally recommended raising the fee to $15 per square foot through a phased-in process by first raising the fee to $10 beginning next year then jumping to $15 in 2024. However, the Housing Commission recommended raising the fee to $25 per square foot.

Consultant David Paul Rosen & Associates also recommended raising the inlieu fee to $25; however, its analysis justified increasing the fee to between $32 and $48 per square foot.

At the Dec. 7 council meeting, Councilmember Peter Weiss suggested a phased-in approach increase to $20 as a compromise.

According to Housing and Neighborhood Services Director Leilani Hines, staff chose the $15 figure as a means to keep the inclusionary housing policy flexible plus considering that it adds to many other fees that developers pay, such as park, water, wastewater, traffic signal and developer impact fees.

“We are mindful that it’s really a doubling over the current fee that we’ve had over the years,” Hines said, noting that raising the fee higher could adversely impact future housing development.

In comparison, Carlsbad has a $15 per square foot in-lieu fee, Encinitas has a $20 fee and Del Mar

Kelly Batten of the Building Industry Association of San Diego praised staff for its efforts to maintain a flexible inclusionary housing policy. The senior public policy adviser noted that the fee falls back on Oceanside homebuyers, raising costs and making it even more difficult to afford to buy or even rent a home.

Batten said that a $25 per square foot in-lieu fee is an additional $315 per month for homebuyers for an average-sized home. With typical interest rates, that adds up to about $113,000 over a 30-year mortgage.

“At a time where housing is critical and people are struggling to make ends meet, those fees are a real significant cost to families,” Batten said.

Batten also noted that the cities with high in-lieu fees aren’t building “any housing,” let alone affordable housing.

But several Oceanside residents spoke in favor of raising the fee to $25 per square foot.

“We don’t need to give

away all the cookies,” said Arleen Hammerschmidt.

Housing Commission Chair Inez Williams also defended the commission’s reasoning behind recommending the $25 figure, especially considering that the consultant the city hired recommended the same price.

“The consultant has told you $25, and staff has said, ‘Yeah, I hear you but we’re going to incentivize the builders and we’re going to do $15,’ ” Williams said. “I don’t think that’s the direction the council should go in and as your housing chairperson I’m hoping you go with the recommendation of your Oceanside Housing Commission as well as the recommendation from your consultant.”

Mayor Esther Sanchez said she was “very disappointed” by Hines’ presentation and suggested that the city is not doing enough to build more affordable housing.

“Our housing department is failing us in not getting out good policy,” Sanchez said. “Now it’s just

building more and more luxury — we need to do better than this.”

Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim pushed back against the mayor for criticizing a staff member during a council meeting. Sanchez justified her comment by pointing out her 22 years of experience on the City Council.

“You bring up your 22 years but you vote against

VOLUNTEER

almost every housing project and then complain that we’re not building housing,” Keim told the mayor. “You can’t have it both ways.”

The mayor denied voting against every housing project.

Council voted 4-0 to approve the in-lieu fee increase to $20 per square foot. Councilmember Kori Jensen left before the discussion.

Supervisors halt inland housing project

REGION — County supervisors voted unanimously Dec. 14 to rescind the permits for a contested North County housing project near Escondido and the Elfin Forest Recreation Reserve.

A previous board in July 2018 approved the Harmony Grove Village South proposal, which involved rezoning land near the intersection of Harmony Grove Road and Country Club Drive.

Along with the General Plan amendment that originally cleared the way for the project, supervisors also voted to rescind the rezoning designation, specific plan, major use permit, environmental impact report and site plan.

The project was planned on 111 acres between Escondido and San Marcos.

According to the county, it would have included 453 single-family and multi-family homes, 5,000 square feet of commercial or civic uses, 4 acres of private and public parks, multi-use

trails, and 35 acres of biological open space.

In August 2018, the Sierra Club, Elfin Forest Harmony Grove Town Council, Endangered Habitats League and Cleveland National Forest Foundation filed a lawsuit challenging the project, claiming it violated the California Environmental Quality Act.

In February 2020, a trial court sided with the plaintiffs. According to the county, the court ruled that the project also had numerous drawbacks, including inadequate greenhouse mitigation measures and air quality analysis.

The project was inconsistent with the San Diego Association of Governments’ Regional Plan, the county’s General Plan on affordable housing and a community plan policy requiring septic tanks, according to the court ruling.

On Oct. 14, 2021, an appeals court affirmed the trial court’s ruling. In October, the trial court issued a revised order requiring the

county to rescind all Harmony Grove project approvals within 60 days.

During a public comment period, J.P. Theberge of the Elfin Forest Harmony Grove Town Council said the previous Board of Supervisors didn't take community concerns about wildfire risks seriously.

“The era of sprawl developing in fire-prone areas is over,” Theberge said, adding that he and other area residents have started a nonprofit that focuses on contested development projects.

Kelvin Barrios of the Laborers Union Local 89 urged supervisors to let the project go forward.

“We have an agreement; they’re working with local labor,” he said. “We want to see this project done.”

Supervisor Jim Desmond was absent, and his office didn't provide a formal reason. The meeting, which focused on land use and environmental issues, was the last for 2022.

took what she thought was the hard drive.

On the morning of Jan. 1, Janks went out to her car and discovered that Merriman was still in the 4Runner and not moving. Speaking through sobs, Janks described how she drove her car to his driveway and found that his leg was cold upon touching him. When asked why she didn’t call 911, Janks said she panicked.

“I was scared. I didn’t want to get blamed. I was the one who had just picked him up; I had destroyed his computer… I didn’t want to be blamed for killing him,” Janks said.

Janks said she was unsure of what to do but tried to pull his body into his wheelchair so she could get him inside his house.

However, his body fell to the ground in his driveway, and she decided to pull a blanket over him where he lay and cover his body with cardboard boxes and debris so her neighbor wouldn’t see him.

She would be arrested later that day, and deputies would discover Merriman’s body in the same spot on the morning of Jan. 2.

“I wasn’t planning to leave him there,” she said. “I didn't really know what to do. I wasn’t trying to dump his body.”

During cross-examination, Janks testified that she suspected that morning that he might be dead before feeling that he was cold to the touch. She admitted that she even drove to Scripps Memorial Hospital in Encinitas to pick up a wheelchair — with Merriman still in the car — before confirming he was dead that morning.

The District Attorney’s Office’s case argues that Janks intentionally drugged her father, strangled him and suffocated him and that she planned out the murder ahead of time with Roach.

During her testimony, Janks was questioned by the prosecution and defense about a series of texts exchanged with Roach from Dec. 23 to Jan.1 about a “plan” for when Merriman was released from the hospital.

According to Janks, this plan never involved having her stepfather die but referred to having Roach confront him about the photos and make sure he deleted them.

One of the texts the prosecution focused on was sent by Janks to Roach on Dec. 31 after she had picked up Merriman from the hospital when she said, “I just dosed the hell out of him.”

When pressed about the message by Del Portillo, the deputy district attorney, Janks said she had not deliberately given her stepfather any drugs that day and claimed she sent that message so Roach would come to her home quicker.

She admitted on the stand that the message was a “poor choice of words,” along with another text from that day telling Roach, “I am about to club him on the head as he is waking up.”

Despite their apparent plan, Janks said Roach never made his way over to her home that day. However, at one point, he sent his associate Brian Salomon, who came to Janks’ home but

then quickly left.

In September 2022, Salomon told the District Attorney’s Office that Janks had asked him to strangle her stepfather when he came to her home that day, something he had not told detectives in previous interviews.

“Mr. Salomon said that initially, he had failed to provide information about what Ms. Janks had said to him when he was at her property on the 31st … saying he had information he was too afraid to give law enforcement at the time,” Detective Matthew Gibson testified during the trial.

Gibson testified that Salomon had two other criminal charges at the time — one related to a case in San Bernardino and another in Oceanside — but there were never discussions about a plea deal or immunity in exchange for the information he provided.

The defendant denied ever asking Salomon to strangle Merriman and also denied accounts from Adam Siplyak, who claimed that Janks confessed to murdering her father on the evening of Dec. 31 and asked him to help her move the body.

Janks’ last text to Roach said she was getting pulled over, telling him to “Lose my number” on Jan. 1, just moments before she was arrested.

The art of homemade gift giving jano’s garden

jano nightingale

Agift from the heart.

A gift from your kitchen or vegetable garden. In the frantic weeks before Christmas and Hanukkah, we are all rushing to find the perfect gift for friends and relatives.

But I have finally decided, partially because I dislike crowded box stores and also because I have a small budget, that I would create as many homemade gifts as possible.

My son and I took this idea to a new level this week when we created our own Christmas tree!

Coming from the Northeast, where Christmas tree farms abound, I simply refuse to pay $50 to $100 dollars for a tree may have arrived over a month ago in the tree lot.

So, instead we created a decorative evergreen arrangement in a large urn. After a visit to a Christmas tree lot in Vista last week, I found the owner was happy to give away a large bundle of boughs, which we gathered together to form an illusory tree.

We added lots of lights and ornaments, and it was quite a creation!

CREATE A WINTER SALAD GARDEN

If you are traveling locally, why not create a living gift of a winter salad garden?

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting the Vista Farmers Market, held each Saturday at the Vista courthouse, and upon the suggestion of a fellow gardener, went to visit Whole Earth Acres.

Husband and wife Suilin and Whitney Robinson have worked tirelessly over the years to create one of the most extensive collections of herbs and vegetables, which they sell at their stand at the market.

Suilin helped me

choose 3-inch starter vegetables in small pots that can be transplanted into a large container as a gift for a gardener or new home owner.

“It is a little too cold now to grow a lot of herbs, but all of the green leafy vegetables will thrive in the cooler weather,” advised Suilin. “Just put them all together in a big pot, and they will thrive outdoors.”

I left with a tray full of salad greens, broccoli, lavender and chives, and can’t wait to plant a decorative container garden in my front yard.

Although the Robinsons will not be at the market on Christmas Eve (they return on Dec. 31), many of the smaller nurseries, such as Anderson’s La Costa Nursery, at 400 La Costa Ave. in Encinitas, and Green Thumb Nursery at 1019 W. San Marcos Blvd. in San Marcos, will be open and happy to advise you about creating a winter salad garden.

CHILDREN AND GIFT GIVING

If your child has a small allowance or no money in their pocket, they might feel left out of the gift-giv-

ing process.

But friends and relatives would relish the knowledge that one of your children had taken part in gift giving.

Handmade gifts

Locate a website that teaches the art of origami, and with sheets of colored paper and string, even your elementary school-age children can create flying birds, stars and flowers to give as gifts.

And while you have paper available, teach your children how to make old-fashioned snowflakes with paper and scissors.

Preserve memories

Bring out those boxes of photographs that have been on the shelf forever, and have your children make photo albums, adding drawings and stories to accompany the photos.

GIFTS FROM YOUR GARDEN SHED & PANTRY

Share the seed

If you have been diligent (and read our column on seed saving from September 2020), look through those little envelopes full of

last season’s seed and share them with your friends and relatives.

Gardeners are just like stamp collectors and love to share their special cultivars, such as Thai Basil or Mammoth Sunflowers, with others.

Pantry treasures

For those of us who enjoy canning and preserving, we have tried to save some of the bounty of last summer’s fruit and vegetable crops through our food processing.

If you wrap your Ball jars in patterned fabric, tie with a bow and place your label on the side of the jar, you will wow your friends and relatives.

And if you forgot to preserve your crops this year, give yourself a Christmas present of “The Ball Blue Book of Canning and Preserving,” and next year you will be ready for the holidays.

From our family to yours, wishing you a happy and creative holiday season. Send me your ideas for homemade gifts, and we might just add them to a column.

Humane Society waives adoption fees for adult dogs through Dec.

REGION — The San Diego Humane Society is waiving adoption fees for adult dogs for the rest of the year, thanks to a $10,000 donation from local animal lover Randy Spicer.

The shelter is at capacity for its dog population, after what SDHS staff said was an unprecedented year with many incoming stray animals who have not been reclaimed by their owners.

Out of nearly 700 animals available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society, 260 are adult dogs, officials said.

Due to Spicer’s donation, all dogs older than 7 months can have adoption fees waived.

“This donation to support adoptions could

not have come at a better time,” said Gary Weitzman, SDHS president and CEO. “By waiving fees, we are hoping to get these dogs into new homes for the holidays.”

Those who adopt from SDHS get pets who are spayed/neutered and vaccinated, have been medically assessed and cared for, and also receive training advice and educational information from the organization for the life of the animal.

The San Diego Humane Society is open for walk-in adoptions Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at its campuses in Escondido, El Cajon, Oceanside and San Diego.

To view animals available for adoption, visit sdhumane.org/adopt.

Carlsbad man gets ride of a lifetime on Goodyear blimp

CARLSBAD — Wish of a Lifetime from AARP sent Carlsbad resident Donald Silliphant, 79, a retired firefighter, teacher and veteran living with Parkinson’s disease, on a ride of a lifetime in the Goodyear Blimp over California.

As a sports fan and former coach, Silliphant has always dreamed of getting to ride in the Goodyear Blimp, known for flying over major national sporting events.

Donald’s flight took place Nov. 3 from the Goodyear Blimp Base in Carson, where AARP California volunteers gathered to celebrate Donald and send him to see the unique views of Southern California from the Goodyear Blimp.

Striking UC workers begin voting on tentative labor deal

REGION — University of California graduate student workers and researchers began voting Monday on a proposed labor deal reached with the university amid a roughly five-week work stoppage.

The tentative agreement was announced Friday, Dec. 16. Affected employees represented by the United Auto Workers union were expected to vote on the proposal throughout this week.

“These tentative agreements include major pay increases and expanded benefits, which will improve the quality of life for all members of the bargaining unit,” United Auto Workers President Ray Curry said in a Dec. 16 statement. “Our members stood up to show the university that academic workers are vital to UC’s success. They deserve nothing less than a contract that reflects the important role they play and the reality of working in cities with extremely high costs of living.”

Union officials credited Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg for helping to mediate the agreements.

“Over the 2.5 years of this contract, workers will see raises of up to 66%, or over $13,000/year at some campuses,” Tarini Hardikar, a member of the SRU-UAW Bargaining Team at UC Berkeley, said in a statement. “In addition to incredible wage increases, the tentative agreements also include expanded benefits for parent workers, greater rights for international workers, protections against

bullying and harassment, improvements to accessibility, workplace protections, and sustainable transit benefits. I am so proud of what we were able to accomplish with this contract.”

But over the weekend, dissension arose over the proposed deal, with some workers arguing it falls short of their salary demands, with increases not taking full effect until late 2024.

Mark Woodall, a UC Meced doctoral candidate and chair of the campus bargaining unit for UAW, told the Los Angeles Times the deal fell short in ensuring union members can immediately get salary boosts to help them afford rising housing costs.

“The idea that these are being sold as spectacular wins is just ludicrous,” Woodall told the paper.

According to the UC, the deal would set minimum pay for graduate student researchers at $34,564.50 for 50% time work by Oct. 1, 2024. The minimum ninemonth salary for teaching assistants would be $34,000 for 50% time work by Oct. 1, 2024. The rate will be $36,500 at UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco and UCLA.

About 48,000 workers, including 17,000 student researchers, at UC San Diego, the nine other University of California campuses and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory went on strike in mid-November.

Postdoctoral scholars and academic researchers each overwhelmingly ratified their new contracts in voting that concluded Dec. 9.

In loving memory of Marie (Polly) Emma Rose 1934 - 2022

Our beautiful loving mother, Marie Emma Rose, 88, peacefully passed away Monday, December 12, 2022 in Leucadia, California.

Mom was born July 31, 1934 in Flint, Michigan, the daughter of John and Helen (LaPratt) TerBush. She was the third oldest of nine siblings and grew up on the family farm in Mayville, Michigan. As a very young girl, Mom especially liked to snack on crackers, thereby earning her nickname; closest friends and family still refer to her as “Polly”. Upon graduating high school and turning 18 years old, Marie moved out on her own to the YWCA in downtown San Diego, Cali-

fornia because she wanted to be closer to Hollywood movie stars. Mom soon met and married our dad, Darrell Francis Hudson, and they eventually settled in Carlsbad, California to raise their three children: Clifford Charles, Linda Marie, and David Lyle Hudson. Mom was a lifelong homemaker and lived at our family home from August 1959

“His journey and career inspire us to strive for all the best life has to offer despite any obstacles that may come our way.”

“Sometimes it takes a second look at life to know what things mean or represent,” Donald said. “Getting a birds-eye view of my world and everyone in it that makes my life easier was invigorating and left me feeling hopeful.

“I was really kind of stunned. It was so much more than I anticipated. It is going to stay with me for a long time.”

“It’s especially meaningful to fulfill a dream for someone like Donald, who has devoted his life to serving others,” said Laura Duda, Goodyear’s senior

vice president and chief communications officer. “We are honored that we could work with ‘Wish of a Lifetime’ to make this a reality.”

Silliphant joined the Army in 1962 and became a paratrooper during the Vietnam War. Following his Army career, he was a firefighter for 20 years, but was forced to retire due to an injury after falling through a roof while putting out a fire.

Silliphant continued to give back to his community after his injury. He became a high school social studies teacher for 16 years. During his time as a teacher, he coached the school’s cheerleading team and volunteered as the football game announcer.

FROM 9

remote meetings over Zoom for the past 2½ years, the council will return to an in-person format at its next regular meeting on Jan. 9.

While the majority of neighboring cities returned to live proceedings over the past year, Del Mar stuck to a virtual format due to continued concerns about COVID-19.

This month, the council

approved an $8,500 budget adjustment for equipment to facilitate hybrid meetings.

City Manager Ashley Jones told the council this month that masks will be available for members of the public who want them and that space between chairs will be increased out of caution.

“We want the public to feel safe and comfortable coming into these meetings as well,” Jones said.

REGION — Four North County skateboarders have joined the national skateboarding team with plans to compete in the 2024 Summer Olympics.

The United States governing body announced in mid-December that 16 athletes would be joining the 2023 National Skateboarding team, including Ruby Lilley, 16, of Oceanside, Bryce Wettstein, 18, of Encinitas, Braden Hoban, 21, of Encinitas and Gavin Bottger, 15, of Oceanside and Vista.

The National Skateboarding team is divided into four categories: men’s park, men’s street, women’s park and women’s street. As mostly vert and park skateboarders, both Lilley and Wettstein have joined the women’s park group. Bottger was placed in the men’s park group and Hoban joined men’s street.

Tate Carew, 17 another young skateboarder from San Diego, made it on to the men’s park team.

Lilley, who recently celebrated her 16th birthday, moved to Oceanside from Ocean City, Maryland, five years ago. With a background in ballet and ballroom dancing, the teen never imagined that years later she might represent her country in the Olympics as a skateboarder.

“I never thought I would go this path — it’s like a dream come true,” she said. “Ever since I started skateboarding, it’s been my dream to go to the Olympics.”

It was around 2018 when a young Lilley came home in tears from a ball-

room dance competition. She had decided she didn’t want to dance anymore but wanted to skateboard.

Over the years, as the skate park changed with new ramps coming and going, Wettstein grew and changed with it.

Wettstein’s family recently made its own mark at the skate park by donating a new vert ramp that was built in her own backyard.

“I never got to actually contribute that much to a skate park before,” Wettstein said. “Now a piece of my family is there.”

Joining the national skateboarding team means the world to Wettstein.

“When you spend your life doing something that you love doing every single day and now you get to join this team with all your friends. … there are a lot of big feelings,” she said.

Padres’ Perry to join growing ranks of female execs in MLB

REGION — The San Diego Padres are preparing to announce the promotion of Caroline Perry to chief operating officer in early 2023, according to sources familiar with the situation.

When contacted about the developments in the team’s front office, the Padres declined to comment on the record.

Once the deal is finalized, Perry, currently the team’s executive vice president of business administration and general counsel, will become the third-highest-ranking woman in a Major League Baseball club.

Perry’s promotion comes after several women have recently assumed high-profile roles in teams across the league.

Catie Griggs was named the Seattle Mariners’ president of business operations in July 2021, becoming the first woman to hold a top executive position with an MLB team.

In November, Caroline O’Connor was promoted to president of business operations of the Miami Marlins. The Marlins also hired Kim Ng as their general manager in 2020.

Perry has been with

the Padres for 11 seasons overseeing the organization’s legal, accounting and public affairs departments.

She also helped negotiate the team’s sale to current owner Peter Seidler and the team’s development of Tailgate Park and the All-Star Game in 2016.

Perry will be third in command in the Padres’ front office behind CEO Erik Greupner, of Carlsbad, and A.J. Preller, the team’s president of baseball operations and general manager.

Before joining the Padres, Perry was a corporate attorney for Davis Polk 7 Wardwell in the Bay Area and Cravath Swaine & Moore in New York. Perry also worked as an account management associate for BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager.

Perry is a San Diego native with a bachelor’s degree in human biology from Stanford University and a law degree from Columbia University.

“My mom said, ‘But you love dancing,’ and I said, ‘But I love skateboarding more,’” Lilley recalled.

Skateboarding used to be an after-school activity for Lilley — now, the sport has taken a professional turn for her.

Lilley often frequents Prince Park in Oceanside as well as the CA Training Facility in Vista. It was at the training facility where the recent national contest to determine who would join the national team.

Wettstein, who turns 19 in January, began skateboarding about age 5 before really picking up the sport a year later.

“My dad told me he was going to skate in this big pool — I had never heard of that before — and when he took me it turned out to be this big bowl at the YMCA,” Wettstein said. “That turned into my home pretty quickly.”

hit the road

The ultimate journey, surely, is flying in space.

Just 558 people (300-plus Americans) of the Earth’s 8 billion have had such an adventure.

Maybe one of the most thrilling experiences in space is depicted on page 59 of “The Space Shuttle: A Mission-by-Mission Celebration of NASA's Extraordinary Spaceflight Program.” The picture is at once both stunning and disturbing.

Taken by astronaut Robert “Hoot” Gibson in 1984, the photo shows astronaut Bruce McCandless floating in outer space — away from the space station — untethered. The blackness of space is at his back; the Earth at his feet, 170 miles below.

The image is reminiscent of an early scene in the 2013 film “Gravity,” in which George Clooney’s astronaut character purposely cuts his tether and floats away to save Sandra Bullock’s astronaut character.

Fortunately, in McCandless’ case, life does not imitate art.

He had the advantage of an MMU — a manned maneuvering unit — that enabled him to propel himself back to the safety of the

space station.

Still, scary stuff, and we’re fortunate to have this photo and 139 others that have been compiled in “The Space Shuttle” by professional photographer Roland Miller, a Chicago native and dean emeritus of the Grayslake Campus of the College of Lake County in Illinois.

“As a young child in the 1960s, I was mesmerized by America’s space program,” he begins. But like many Americans, he lost interest in the program after the 1969 and 1970 moon landings. It was the launch of the first space shuttle in 1981 that rekindled his attention.

Then, in 1988, Miller

was called to Cape Canaveral as a consultant and was drawn to photograph deactivated launch pads. Later, working with one of the astronauts, he directed a photo shoot of the interior of the space shuttle.

As a result, “I had this idea for a book for a while — the best 100 photos of the space shuttle,” Miller said in a phone interview from his home in Ogden, Utah. “This one is close. We ended up with 140 photos — five free flights and 135 actual launch missions. They are all NASA photographs except one.”

To find those 140 photos, Miller examined “three-quarters of a million to a million photos” from NASA and the National Archives.

“I wanted to go to the archives in person,” he said, “but then COVID hit, and the archives closed.”

That meant Miller spent a lot of time online, looking at photos that were suitable in both content and quality.

“We treated the book as an object itself,” he said. “I didn’t want to pick just the greatest hits. I tried to strike a balance between bestknown and lesser-known images.”

My favorites are those that showcase the astronauts: Gary Harbaugh pulling himself along the handrails on the exterior of the orbiter Endeavor (1993); Russian cosmonaut Valery Polyakov peering through the window of the Mir Space Station, watching the

orbiter Discovery approach (1995); John Olivas, during a spacewalk, repairing a thermal blanket on the orbiter Atlantis (2007).

Miller also wrote the text, which offers plenty of understandable detail and anecdotes to keep the interest of even the non-expert. Readers get a glimpse into what it takes to build, maintain and repair space-worthy vehicles. And most helpful is the two-page, full-color graphic depicting all the NASA-crewed space flights from 1961, when Alan Shepard became the first American in space, to 2011, when the orbiter Atlantis made its last mission to the International Space Station.

Proper tribute also is given the Challenger and Columbia tragedies (1986 and 2003, respectively), which reminds us just how tenuous and complicated these missions into outer space are. Their stories illustrate how the tiniest detail can cause massive destruction and perhaps make us wonder why tragedies aren’t more frequent.

“If someone doesn’t know about program, this book is a good introduction,” Miller said. “If they do, we get a little beyond the description of each mission.”

Recently, I went for a go for a walk in downtown Oceanside. Strolling along Cleveland Street just north of Pier View Way, I stumble into a grove of five coffee shops within a few hundred yards of each other. I decided to visit The Bunker House.

I only knew The Bunker House from Instagram, but a quick tour of its website leads me to a short history of the building, which dates back to the 1800s. The brick building was originally owned by Theodore Bunker and has survived by evolving through the generations.

In the past 135-plus years, the building has been a home, hotel, brothel and storefront. According to the current occupants of the building, it has been used “for town hall meetings, dances [and] church services.”

What does any of that have to do with my coffee-drinking experience? Nothing, except that I like old buildings.

I walk into this one, through an open seating area, and into the main cafe space to order a coffee. I’m pleasantly surprised that the batch-brewed coffee is from Coatl Coffee, an Oceanside roaster featuring bird-friendly coffees.

Many of Coatl’s beans come from a family-owned farm in the Chiapas region of Mexico.

I order a medium which is delivered in a much bigger cup than anticipated. When the barista tells me it is only $2.00, I put my credit card away and pull some cash from my pocket. They had another batch of hazelnut-flavored coffee available and plenty of coffee drinks to choose some.

I prefer to stick with the stock black batch brew when trying a new coffee shop to help me gauge the coffee’s quality and barista’s skills.

This one is pretty solid, and I feel like a pretentious snob for presuming that I was going to be getting a generic cup of coffee.

The coffee menu features a full line-up of flavored coffee and tea drinks, including seasonal offerings like a candy cane chai latte and Abuelita’s Hot Chocolate.

There is also a full food

menu heavy on breakfast, lunch and snacks.

The Bunker House, the building, and the business have been a surprise. I’m surprised I can still be surprised after visiting so many coffee shops.

I’m glad I came. I’ll be back again some morning when the sun isn’t in danger of being obscured, and I’m feeling inspired to learn more about the history of Oceanside.

At the San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival, Taste of Wine was able to meet chef Josh Mouzakes at the Arlo restaurant booth along with Kathleen Kubota, Town and Country’s area director of marketing.

After trying Mouzakes’ samples at the festival, I knew that Arlo would be on our short list of restaurants to go and visit. Plus, it has been years since I was at the Town and Country Resort.

Wow, has it changed with the renovation and modernization efforts — a night and day contrast — and it was only fitting that Town and Country brought in a creative wizard like

Mouzakes to lead Arlo.

Over dinner, I was telling Frank that Mouzakes does for food what Walt Disney did for animations.

In talking to Mouzakes at dinner, his vision for

Arlo is that the food and beverage program “is not constrained by boundaries.”

Despite being in his 30s, Mouzakes’ resume is impressive and includes

time at Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry.

He also trained under other world-renowned chefs, including Guy Reuge at New York's Mirabelle Restaurant in The Three Villages Inn and Joel Robuchon at his restaurant in the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

Frank and I started dinner with the Funghi Flatbread topped with forest mushrooms, goat cheese, and herb truffle oil. The combo of these three on the flatbread was a flavor explosion.

Frank had a glass of the 2021 Willamette Valley Whole Cluster Pinot Noir, noting the whole cluster made it “chewy and bold” with strawberry and cherry. I went with the 2021 Daou Chardonnay that blended with goat cheese and truffle oil.

Our server convinced us to order the swordfish bacon, and I am glad he did. The swordfish bacon is

charcuterie board

Are you hosting a holiday party and looking for a simple way to impress your guests?

The Texas Roadhouse Butcher Shop is sharing steps for building an eye-catching and mouth-watering charcuterie board that will add color, flavor and variety to your holiday table.

1. Grab a platter or surface to display your charcuterie. Anything will work, even a simple cutting board.

2. Use dishes or ramekins of mismatched sizes, shapes and colors to hold dressings, toppings and sauces.

3. Include two to four cheeses of contrasting flavors and textures to please all palates, and to comple-

ment other elements of the board.

4. While a traditional charcuterie board typically sticks with cured meats, the holiday season is the perfect occasion for adding depth and richness to your feast with grilled meats, such as filet, sliced into strips.

5. No charcuterie board is complete without some crunch. Add two to three options like pita crackers, crusty breads or toasted baguettes that will stand up to the weight of your meats and cheeses.

6. Now, add some brightness and sweetness to your board. Fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries and green grapes, and preserves such as peach pepper jam, will add contrast to rich, salty meats and cheeses.

When this column is printed, I will be firmly ensconced in a lounge chair near a fireplace. Snowflakes will accumulate out the window, and I will listen to the family argue over which puzzle to put together.

I’m looking forward to the holidays because I'm filled with the "holiday spirit" for the first time in my adult life.

I’ve embraced the lights, the matching holiday onesies, and the tree. It’s an old Snoopy tree that has seen better days, but still.

My nights have been filled with both classic and nauseatingly nostalgic holiday movies. I’ve already watched the Lindsay Lohan one, “Elf,” “Die Hard,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “Scrooged,” and one with Zach Morris from “Saved By the Bell.”

During my transition from holiday cynic to holiday enthusiast, I learned that it takes a lot of time and energy to be filled with the season’s joy. So much time and energy that my efforts as the family bartender seem to be flagging.

I don’t want to make a half dozen gingerbread white Russians every half hour, so I’ve been leaning into the idea of batch cocktails for the rest of the season. Here are my favorites for ease, beauty and time of day.

Morning

Along with an enor-

mous French press filled with Zumbar Coffee & Tea’s Hummingbird blend coffee, fill the punch bowl with a Christmas Mimosa. I always wonder what makes it a “Christmas” mimosa. I assume that it is the red color.

This batch only requires three ingredients with forgiving ratios and a few optional garnishes, making it perfect for mixing up early in the morning before my eyes are fully open.

It looks pretty, tastes sweet and tart, and with a rosemary garnish, reminds the drinker of the Rockwellian holiday scene.

Dump all the following ingredients into a big bowl, rim some champagne glasses (or coffee mugs) with sugar, and let the masses ladle up in the kitchen.

Christmas mimosa

2 parts cranberry juice

2 parts champagne

1 part orange liqueur like Cointreau or Grand Marnier

Optional garnishes: fresh sprig of rosemary, sugared cranberries

Midday

Candy canes are an iconic holiday hard candy and a nice minty treat right after second breakfast or first lunch. Don’t judge. It’s the holidays. The candy cane legend goes back 350 years when a choirmaster in Cologne, Germany, asked a local candy maker for something to shut up those dang kids during church services.

Candy Cane White Russian

4 parts whole milk (or milk alternative)

2 parts coffee liqueur (like Kahlua)

2 parts peppermint schnapps

Optional garnish: crushed Candy Cane around the rim

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a large serving bowl

Serve on the rocks in a tall cocktail glass with a candy cane or crushed candy cane around the rim.

Evening

Want an easy-peasy

cocktail? Buy pre-made cider. Do you need a break from the family for a few minutes but haven’t smoked a cigarette since college? Blend it yourself.

Do you want something with the sweetness of brandy or the burn of whiskey? With a batch of Hot Cider Punch, you’ve got options that end with a drink sure to ward off the chill of the winter wind blowing in from the Pacific. Pro-tip: Top with whipped cream and a caramel-dipped slice of apple.

Hot Cider Punch

3 parts apple juice

1 part orange juice

½ part pineapple juice

1 part booze of your choice. I recommend, in order: brandy, whiskey, cognac, and spiced rum. Substitute ginger beer for alcohol to make a non-alcoholic punch.

¼ cup brown sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

2 teaspoons whole clove 2 teaspoons allspice

Optional garnishes: dash of nutmeg, whipped cream, caramel-dipped apple slice, cinnamon stick

Directions:

Put ingredients in a pasta or sauce pot on the stove.

Turn on low and stir slowly until brown sugar is fully dissolved and the punch is hot (approximately 7-10 minutes).

Serve hot in a coffee mug topped with your favorite garnishes

Note: If you don’t want any spices (not the brown sugar) in your mug, put them into a tea ball or cheesecloth bag before dropping them in the pot.

Don’t forget to follow Cheers! North County on Instagram.

cured in sugar and salt for two days and then dried for two to three weeks before a light treatment of smoke.

The bacon is served with a freshly made rye wheat pretzel twist garnished with pickled mustard seed and a mustard frill flower.

For dinner, I chose the bison tenderloin with black garlic potatoes, heirloom cauliflower, ginger marmalade and mission fig to pair with my wine selections from Paso Robles, including a glass of the 2020 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon.

The bison was amazingly flavorful, lean, and an excellent pairing for the Austin Hope.

Frank had the brick-oven Bolognese, one of the “Center of the Table” heavy appetizers, for his dinner. Like the T&C Pasta, this was chocked full of flavors with beef, veal, pork, fennel seed, and rose tomato sauce clinging to the ridges of the rigatoni pasta topped with pecorino cheese.

Chef Josh’s creativity flowed into Arlo’s desserts. We had the Cheesecake S'mores made from graham crust, vanilla cheesecake, chocolate ganache and toasted marshmallow, and the Smoked Dulce De Leche Crème Brulée topped with macerated berries and mace whip cream.

The crème brulée was covered with a glass dome filled with smoke. The dome is pulled off when served at the table with the smoke infused into the dessert.

Way to go, Town and Country, for your renovation and extending this into the Arlo restaurant under the leadership of Mouzakes.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS:

If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call the phone number shown below in bold, using the Reference number assigned to this case on SHOWN ABOVE. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Notice, advances thereunder, with interest as provided therein, and the unpaid assessments secured by said Notice with interest thereon as provided in said Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, fees, charges and expenses of the trustee and the trusts created by said Notice of Assessment and Claim of Lien.

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA, AMENDING CHAPTER 2.15 AND ADDING CHAPTER 2.30 COMMUNITY-POLICE ENGAGEMENT COMMISSION TO TITLE 2 OF THE CARLSBAD MUNICIPAL CODE

The ordinance amends Title 2 of the Carlsbad Municipal Code by adding Chapter 2.30 to establish a five-member civilian commission that would be known as the Community-Police Engagement Commission, would meet quarterly, and would have as its primary duty community engagement, not police oversight. The advisory commission would report directly to the City Council and present annual workplans to the City Council for approval.

The purpose of the commission is to provide a cooperative and collaborative forum for the community and police leadership to learn and discuss the challenges of modern-day policing and provide a community perspective about public safety challenges. The commission will work collaboratively with the police chief to provide advice, support, and recommendations relating to current or newly considered policies and programs with an overarching goal of building trust and fostering strong police-community relations.

The commission shall have no authority to direct the conduct of any department, including the police department, to review or advise upon personnel matters related to individual peace officers or to review confidential peace officer personnel files. It is not the purpose of this commission to review or comment upon items staff will present to City Council, unless the item is referred to the commission by the City Council or City Manager.

The ordinance establishes qualifications and training requirements for commission members.

The commission’s duties will be to:

1. Promote productive communication and interaction between the City of Carlsbad Police Department and community.

2. Provide a forum for police leadership to inform the commission and public of police initiatives, challenges, and data relating to police activity.

3. Educate the community and receive community feedback regarding policing standards and expectations.

4. Create additional community access to public safety information.

5. Recommend changes or improvements to Carlsbad Police Department policies, procedures or training.

6. Review new or proposed Carlsbad Police Department programs to evaluate how those programs might impact the Carlsbad community, including disenfranchised and marginalized communities.

7. Provide a forum for presentations by police leadership on matters that receive high media interest or come to the attention of the commission.

The ordinance also includes revisions to Chapter 2.15, Section 2.15.050 of the Carlsbad Municipal Code to establish an appointment process for members of the commission.

A certified copy of the full text of the proposed ordinances is posted in the Office of the City Clerk, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad, CA 92008.

PASSED AND ADOPTED at a Regular Meeting of the City Council of the City of Carlsbad, California, on the 13th day of December, 2023, by the following vote, to wit:

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

Plan to check 15 minutes prior to the scheduled hearing time.

If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.

You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Solar panels are coming to town

soul on fire

In case you missed it, global warming is a thing.

In 2006, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore published a book, “An Inconvenient Truth,” about the planetary emergency of global warming and what we can do about it, followed by a documentary outlining the consequences of not making immediate changes to our behavior around this issue.

Cut to 2018, when Greta Thunberg, a 15-year-old girl from Stockholm, significantly impacted the world's consciousness around the same subject by addressing the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Locally, any surfer can attest that the oceans stay warm far into the fall and winter months now. The kelp patties are diminishing.

The amount of toxicity pumped into the atmosphere through fossil fuels remains a problem, and pollution levels and human exposure are still a concern.

Watching the extreme storms across the country makes it hard to deny it's time for another wake-up call.

All of our lifestyle choices and habits make an impact on the environment. This column explores the important things we can implement immediately to create a more sustainable society.

Let’s talk about energy and your electric bill. It’s like death, taxes, and SDGE in San Diego. SDGE is the most expensive utility in the nation. Until recently, there was no financial reason for this highly profitable monopoly that controls our power to change.

However, increasing demands on the grid system, compromised infrastructure, and dwindling water levels at Hoover Dam have caused this “public utility company” to rethink some of its policies

as climate-driven wildfires, drought, heat waves, and storms trigger blackouts.

Recent alliances with solar and turbine farms to offset the higher demand while adding renewable energy to the grid add another line item to the already skyrocketing bill.

The fees are passed to consumers for delivery, generation, and capital improvement bonds and continue rising with no end in sight.

What’s the solution?

Renewable energy through solar panels can help air quality and reduce water use and environmental pollution. Empowering the consumer by returning the power to the people by creating and storing their own energy is the wave of the future.

Every home will have solar on it soon. New construction has solar as a standard feature, and new subdivisions are being built that are connected to form a microgrid. This self-contained power system can operate independently of California’s grid if it fails and will soon be the norm in a neighborhood near you.

When installing solar panels and storage with a battery for backup, you own your energy with a mini power plant on your roof. Harnessing the sun’s energy and converting it into electricity to run your home and power your car if you’ve gone E.V. empowers homeowners and puts money back in their pockets.

Anything you don’t use goes back onto the grid. Solar owners are given credit under the current policy penny for penny with a small monthly interconnection fee.

As of Dec. 15, 75% of

those savings are in jeopardy with the newly passed NEM 3.0. Time is running out to be grandfathered in under the NEM 2.0 policy, as governing agencies have decided the fate of solar in California this month.

However, any customer signed, with a filed interconnection agreement before April 15, has three years to get installed and qualifies for NEM 2.0 for twenty years.

Even with the changes to the policy, owning your solar system frees you from the stronghold of an expensive, outdated, and archaic industry that is unreliable and unpredictable and is doing your part to help clean up the environment by going carbon neutral.

By this time, we should be beyond whether getting solar is a wise investment, and the decision has become more of an I.Q. test than anything else.

The real flex is finding a company that puts the customer and their needs first and implements sustainability practices within and throughout the community.

“No matter what side you take on the global warming debate, it is clear that we have kicked the can down the road for far too long,” states Jim Bunch, past president and co-founder of Powur Energy, based in Carlsbad.

You can own and harness the sun’s power, save hundreds of dollars monthly, and improve the planet by going solar now, becoming an independent producer of electricity.

Blending the coastline: Art installation at Encinitas Boulevard

In December 2022, the Caltrans and SANDAG Build NCC Project alongside the City of Encinitas and talented artists Amy Baur and Brian Boldon who created fused image mosaic tile artwork consisting of a variety of California native plants and animal species, blending the city to the coastline.

Not only does this art brighten the area, but it’s also a key design component reflected throughout

the Build NCC project –constructing visually appealing and helpful infrastructure improvements throughout North County.

The I-5/Encinitas Boulevard intersection was improved by the Build NCC project through a new separated biking and walking path under the overpass, offering safe east/west connectivity for people biking and walking and improving coastal access.

Similar work can also

be found at Santa Fe Drive with improved bike and pedestrian connectivity, and a variety of art tile from local artists in the community.

The Caltrans and SANDAG Build NCC Project is continuing with ongoing work through 2024, creating new 4 miles of new Carpool/HOV Lanes, a new sound wall, and community enhancements in the City of Carlsbad such as enhancements to the I-5 inter-

sections with Chestnut Avenue and Palomar Airport Road with new bike paths and integrated technology. The Build NCC Project is anticipated to be complete in 2024, with the new HOV Lanes to be completed in Summer 2023.

Thank you for your patience throughout construction – we’re almost there!

Would you care for mayo in that eggnog?

Ah, holiday parties. Friends. Food. Eggnog made with mayonnaise.

Wait, what? Yup, Hellmann’s (aka Best Foods) is pushing a recipe for eggnog made with mayonnaise. Now, when you consider that mayo is just eggs and oil, there’s a certain logic, though you’ll arguably end up with oily nog.

Some folks love mayo, although Luke Gralia of The Takeout noted, “A thin layer of mayo on a sandwich is fine, but dipping fries into a cup of it? Bring me a barf bag.”

I agree wholeheartedly.

Still, Hellmann’s and mixologist Cody Goldstein have introduced the world to mayo-nog at a New York bar. I wish them good luck with this brand extension.

Brand extension (brand stretching) is a strategy companies use to apply their recognizable brand name to a new product or service. The theory is consumers will know and trust the brand name enough to try it.

This explains Hellmann’s move. It’s also the same concept Spam is attempting with its new Figgy Pudding flavor. It’s not for me, buy hey…I’m a vegetarian.

The bigger question, as they used to say in vaudeville, is whether it will play in Peoria.

The holidays are a great time to test brand extensions. Partiers have a chance to try something new with relatively little risk. If you get positive feedback, you expand your testing in the new year.

There were lots of food extensions tried last

ask mr. marketing rob weinberg

holiday season, including Shake Shack’s Wake And Shake milkshake (geared towards stoners), Burger King’s plant-based whoppers and Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza (now a permanent offering).

This year you’ll even find numerous food brands testing extensions with their merchandise, including Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa-Scented Sweaters and Olive Garden Family Holiday Pajamas.

Regardless of what you sell, you too may want to look at extending your own products or services for next year’s holiday season.

Introducing new products, services or merchandise to your existing customer base is easier than you might imagine.

However, there’s growing competition for attention, and you’d better find ways to stand out of the crowd.

With 2022’s holiday season almost complete, this is a good time to start thinking about how to expand your offerings for 2023.

It could be a huge opportunity for you to grow your bottom line in 2024 … and beyond.

With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

would be problematic since individual council members may have biases toward certain applicants that may not reflect the will of the majority.

“I’m a huge proponent of a direct vote of the people, it’s why I backed Proposition A,” said Ehlers, referring to the 2013 measure giving residents the right to vote on zoning changes. “I have ultimate faith that the people will pick the right person for the people. I hope that we all agree that assuming we’re going with an appointment that the appointment should reflect the wishes of voters, but that’s very difficult for a council to do because we all come in with biases.”

To make his point, Ehlers argued that his fellow council members likely would not have selected him to fill the vacancy left by former deputy mayor Joe Mosca, the District 4 member, if Mosca had resigned before the expiration of his term. He noted that the current council voted to remove him from

the city’s Planning Commission and endorsed his primary rival, Pamela Redela, in the November election — indicating that the other three would not have appointed him to replace Mosca.

“If Joe had resigned mid-term … the council would not have appointed me, yet the electorate did by an overwhelming margin … that goes to show that it’s very hard for this council to make that appointment without those biases slipping in,” Ehlers said.

“In your hypothetical … you’re probably right, that we would not have appointed you,” Kranz acknowledged in response.

Ehlers also said that if the council appoints a candidate, that candidate should pledge to not run in the next election cycle, to give the people a chance to vote on a new council member for the District 1 seat. He noted that Del Mar and Carlsbad both have such a requirement in their laws that restrict an appointee from running for election.

“I would support appointing somebody who

voluntarily would agree not to run in next election cycle,” he said, an opportunity “to have a free open election without having the anointed incumbency advantage.”

Eleven of the 16 public speakers at the meeting agreed with Ehlers that the city ought to hold a special election to fill the vacancy.

“You’re faced with two difficult solutions. One is expensive, the other is far from democratic,” said longtime resident Bernard Minster. “I would say how much does democracy cost? And what is it worth? If it’s $400,000, let’s find ways to raise it — instead of choosing a far more autocratic form of government.”

Resident Cyrus Kamada characterized an appointment as an unfair power grab that would simply reinforce the power of the majority on the council while not reflecting the diversity of opinion in Encinitas.

“Sometimes the most effective use of power lies in its restraint. If the council appoints a supporter in District 1, you would have an 80% majority,” Kamada

said. “A government that deliberately diverges from the makeup of its constituents loses legitimacy almost by definition. That is the reason that diversity has value and if diversity is truly our goal then we should embrace it even if the outcome complicates our agenda. The cheapest and quickest solution isn’t always the best one.”

Former City Council candidate Susan Turney also spoke out against an appointment, expressing concern that the council would simply appoint a like-minded candidate who would go along with the majority votes.

“Encinitas has experienced a string of appointments in recent years that regularly produced unanimous votes in lockstep with Mayor Blakespear’s. Hinze, Lyndes and Mosca have perfect or near perfect voting records that align with the mayor,” Turney said.

“These votes usually occur after very little council dialogue even on the most important issues … at worst this speaks to repeated Brown Act violations — which means that the votes

were predetermined illegally out of public view. At best these votes point to an unhealthy dynamic known as groupthink … which would only be reinforced if this council chooses an appointee.”

Kranz and the other council members acknowledged these concerns, but the mayor reiterated his view that the majority of residents would be comfortable with the council representatives exercising their authority in selecting an appointee.

“I recognize that there’s a lot invested in segments of community in having an election. I understand why, but for me, given the difference in timeline election and appointment and difference in cost, I’m confident that the majority of the community would prefer that the City Council exercise their representative democracy if anything else comes up,” he said. “Ultimately, we’re in a representative democracy, not a direct democracy. The vast majority of people who have been appointed have also been re-elected by the voters.”
