CARLSBAD —The City of Carlsbad will join a $26 billion national settlement resulting from a lawsuit filed against prominent pharmaceutical companies over the opioid crisis that RANCHO has devastated communities across the country for SFNEWS decades. The Carlsbad City Council approved the decision to join the legal payout during its Dec. 14 meeting. The State of California expects to receive between $1.8 billion and $2.6 billion from the settlement, according to a staff report, and the City of Carlsbad is projecting $1.6 million as its settlement portion. In July, a bipartisan coalition of state attorney generals announced the deal against the three largest pharmaceutical distributors — McKesson, Cardinal Health and AmerisourceBergen — along with manufacturer Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson. “The model used to determine allocation of the settlement proceeds was based on information collected by federal agencies for purposes independent of the National Prescription Opiates Litigation,” McMahon said. “The information

SDUHSD debates policies for violent threats on social media By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — After several incidents at district schools this month, including an incident resulting in La Costa Canyon students returning to at-home learning for a day, the San Dieguito Union High School District school board is considering options to curb threats of violence on social media. During a special board meeting this week, Trustee Michael Allman and Board President Maureen “Mo” Muir strongly encouraged a motion to bring back options to the board that included a zero-tolerance policy for certain acts. However, the motion failed 3-2, with Muir and Allman in support. Allman said the proposed policy would call for students guilty of certain violent or threatening offenses, which normally would be subject to expulsion pending a case-by-case review, to be automatically expelled from the district.

Trustee Julie Bronstein, the newest school board member, whose children are students in the school district, said she does not want the board to be instilling more fear into the community. “I feel our schools are safe,” Bronstein said. “And
I am firmly committed to ensuring that they continue to be safe and that anything we can do to enhance the safety I am 100% on board for and also that we do it in a collaborative way. I really feel it’s important that we are inspiring confidence in our community. That we
are not creating a feeling of fear and panic but rather that our schools are safe havens for our students.” Allman's brought the motion regarding a zero-tolerance policy and expressed his belief that not exploring all of the possible options would be a failure
of the entire board. “This isn’t adopting anything in particular, this is asking for some alternatives to be brought back to the board,” Allman said. “And I think it would be a dereliction of our duty as board trustees not to at least consider options.” The special meeting was called Tuesday morning by Muir following an increase in social media posts both locally and nationally on the social media platform Tik Tok threatening violence in schools. The trend caused some school districts across the country to keep their students home last Friday. The school board passed a resolution just last week reaffirming its commitment to student safety following both the incident at La Costa Canyon High School and a school shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan last month. The meeting was held at 10 a.m. which left some parents, teachers and ad-
ministrators out of the discussion. The board did pass a motion for Superintendent Dr. Cheryl James-Ward to return to the board at its next regular meeting with several reports regarding the district’s communication and handling of incidents of violence. “That’s really our superintendent talking to our counselors and getting back to us specifically on if we are fully meeting the needs of our students, is there anything we can do in addition and what does that look like,” Trustee Melisse Mossy said. “What do our counselors feel is missing in this ever-changing world where social media is taking over our schools.” Ward said the district has already been working to improve its communication. “Right now we have increased our communication,” Ward said. "We are providing as much information as we can within the letter of the law.
Judge strikes SDUSD vaccine mandate We’re More than Just Great Pizza. Ruling: Only state can issue mandates without exemptions By City News Service
REGION — A judge ruled against the San Diego Unified School District this week in a lawsuit challenging its vaccine mandate for students. San Diego Superior Court Judge John Meyer said the district’s mandate, which does not permit religious or personal belief exemptions, contradicts state law, because only the state legislature has the authority to implement such mandates without exemptions. Meyer also ruled that while students are required to receive some vaccinations in order to attend in-person school, adding COVID-19 to the list of required vaccinations without allowing personal belief exemptions is another exercise of authority that lies only with the state. Under the district’s roadmap, unvaccinated students must take part in remote learning via independent study. By the start of the district’s second semester on Jan. 24, unvaccinated students would not be allowed to continue with in-person instruction unless they have an approved medical exemption. Meyer said that attendance in an independent study program must be voluntary, while such a program would be mandatory under the district’s roadmap. The lawsuit which spurred Meyer’s ruling was filed by local parents group Let Them Choose, an offshoot of Let Them Breathe, which has challenged mask and vaccine mandates at the state and local level. The group argued in its

It is unclear whether the school district intends to appeal the order, which comes on the day district students were required to receive their second vaccine dose in order to be considered fully vaccinated and able to attend in-person instruction by the start of the second semester.

Another misstep by CPUC But it’s not too late to correct
By David Rosenfeld
espite being created to regulate i n v e s t o r- o w n e d utilities, the California Public Utilities Commission, or CPUCproposed a giveaway to utilities that would boost their profits at the expense of the average person, family-supporting jobs, and California’s clean energy promises. The giveaway came in the form of a proposed decision to slash net metering, the policy that makes it possible for solar energy to be affordable and accessible for all Californians. The proposed decision claims to back equity and inclusion—but the math doesn’t add up. A $57-a-month solar penalty fee for Californians, the highest in the country. A slashing of export credits for all solar users, including schools and churches. A reduction in protections for existing solar customers by five years. If the CPUC values equity, why would they gut the very program that has helped solar reach around half of middle- and working-class neighborhoods? If they value inclusion, why would they make it more expensive, not less, for those moving into new homes? Why would they privilege utility greed over hundreds of thousands of local, skilled jobs, in the aftermath of a global pandemic? It’s not like this utility-backed proposal is popular. Recent polling shows a super-majority of 80 percent of voters across parties support net metering and 85 percent of voters want to see California either maintain its current commitment or do more to encourage and expand rooftop solar across the
state. What’s at stake? Energy affordability and tens of thousands of jobs and local small businesses all around the state. Gutting net metering also raises the question of whether California politicians are actually committed to their promises to reduce air pollution and increase renewable energy — or if these too are just empty pledges intended to pander to voters. The math is clear — California simply cannot meet its clean energy goals without a deep commit-
Making rooftop solar more expensive for working people is incompatible with much of Governor Newsom's agenda — lower energy bills, an end to blackouts, and a clean energy future. The fight is not over for solar advocates. Consumers, affordable housing advocates, faith leaders, environmentalists, conservationists, climate activists, and solar workers and small businesses will continue calling on the CPUC and Governor Newsom to stop the utility profit grab and keep solar growing in
ment to growing rooftop solar. Less rooftop solar, also means more utility-scale solar developments which negatively impacts vulnerable open spaces and wildlife habitats. They’re also more expensive than rooftop solar, but also more profitable for utilities. Are the politicians doing the math on their “green” promises, or simply the math for the utilities’ bottom line? In a state grappling with wildfires and constant energy crises, we need to ensure our families, schools, and neighbors can access reliable, resilient, and affordable energy — not pay the price for outdated, unwieldy electric grids. ‘
California. This fight boils down to the values that make our state great. The big utilities want to protect their control over energy to protect their billions in profit. Our diverse coalition of solar advocates want equitable energy—where people are free to generate and distribute their own energy in more affordable ways. We will continue pushing for an energy system that values people over the utilities. The sun belongs to everyone. Power from the sun should too. David Rosenfeld is executive director at Solar Rights Alliance
n a de facto basis, Californians have had a right to shelter for many
years. But plenty of unhoused people have never had the opportunity to exercise that right and plenty of others just aren’t interested. Together, these two populations make up much of the approximately 160,000 homeless population in this state on any given night. Giving them a formal right to shelter would permit any of the unhoused to go to court and demand a roof over their heads; never mind who might have to pay for that. This suggestion comes from Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, a former president of the state Senate who has long fought to improve life for the mentally ill. The right for individuals to demand their localities provide some sort of shelter is one new aspect of Steinberg’s proposal, not yet adopted by his own city council. In a formal sense, this Steinberg proposal is novel. But in a de facto world where tent cities of the indigent homeless line streets in many California cities, it’s not. Many cities and counties have expended billions of dollars trying to create housing for the homeless, from large shelters to hotel rooms to colonies of tiny homes. By voting for hundreds of millions of dollars in bonds to create housing for the unsheltered, Californians essentially created a right to a roof even though it was never directly voted on. Legislators in 2020 voted to make this a formal, legal right, but Gov. Gavin Newsom vetoed it, saying it might cost too much to house everyone who needs a domicile. What’s really novel about the Steinberg proposal is that besides giving everyone the right to shelter, it also imposes an obligation on the homeless: If this plan is adopted, they would suddenly have an “obligation to accept housing” where it’s offered. But many thousands of the unhoused want no obligations. They know moving into shelters or tiny homes or sanctioned tent villages in spots acceptable to local governments and residents generally comes with rules. These might cover drug abuse, sanitary standards or a requirement to accept counseling. Many homeless individuals have told this column they’d rather stay
that way than accept one or another such obligation. Which means the Steinberg plan, despite the sense in Sacramento that it’s unique, is not — except that it would require the city to provide enough housing for everyone who needs it in either permanent structures or other places deemed acceptable. A key to this plan is the promise that outreach workers (not police) would contact every homeless individual in the city, trying to convince them to accept shelter. If that effort is carried out and fails, the city would then be permitted to remove encampments to keep streets sanitary. One thing that’s unclear: Could Steinberg’s plan stand up in court to challenges based on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Martin v. Boise decision and its ban on removing individuals from public property for sleeping or living there — so long as shelter beds have been made available. What is clear is that despite all that’s been spent on trying to solve homelessness, and despite plenty of happy talk from politicians, the problem is larger than ever, this state containing more than onefourth of America’s total homeless populace, the weather perhaps attracting many of them. It’s possible the Boise decision may have to be challenged and loosened, with new villages for the homeless then being built on vacant land at the peripheries of urban areas. Under that circumstance, persons who refuse to move into shelters because they don’t want rules might be compelled to move away from many places where they now congregate. For sure, the problem now is reminiscent of squeezing silly putty: Every time a homeless encampment is closed, another one seems to spring up nearby. The bottom line: There is little reason to deny the unhoused a right to shelter, so long as they accept that shelter and don’t persist in living on sidewalks or in parks. At the same time, it may be time for a stricter, but still quite humane, alternative for those who refuse to exercise their de facto right to a roof.

Fairgrounds board names new leaders
Encinitas weighs how to keep outdoor dining
By Tigist Layne
permanent needs approval of state
DEL MAR – The Del Mar Fairgrounds board of directors appointed a new president and new vice presidents last week. G. Joyce Rowland will serve as the new president and former presidents Richard Valdez and Frederick Schenk will serve as vice presidents. Operated by the 22nd District Agricultural Association on behalf of the State of California, the Del Mar Fairgrounds board consists of nine members who are appointed by the governor. They are unpaid positions that oversee operations at the fairgrounds, owned by the state. Each member serves a four-year term. “It’s a wonderful combination of history on the board, which we need at this current time, and the future,” said Lisa Barkett, outgoing board vice president. Rowland, who was appointed to the board in March 2020, is a resident of Rancho Santa Fe and has previously worked at Sempra Energy, Pacific Enterprises and Southern California Gas Company. Valdez, who has been on the board president for the past two and a half years, was appointed in 2014, while Schenk has been on the board since 2011. During the Dec. 14 meeting Valdez discussed the challenging year the board has faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis resulting in a huge economic loss for the Del Mar Fairgrounds as the 2020 San Diego County Fair, horse racing and all other events were canceled. “It certainly has been a challenging time over the course of the last two years, certainly with COVID and all the effects it has had,” Valdez said. “We really have proven, from board and staff, the tenacity of this organization.” The board also heard a report on the 2022 operating budget as members look ahead to the upcoming year. According to the financial report, the Fairgrounds expects an operating budget of about $57.5 million, and the board expects positive cash flow in 2022 due to full capacity events returning to the Fairgrounds. “The net projection for 2022 is to break even, continuing to demonstrate a conservative approach toward stabilization and consistent improvement over 2020’s actual operating losses of nearly $3.8 million and 2021’s budget of a $2.5 million loss, responsibly guiding business and operations toward financial recovery,” the staff report says.

O’side dog beach? Residents are gathering signatures for a petition to create a dog beach. But not everyone is on board. By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — A growing number of residents say it’s time the city has a dog beach of its own, while other residents don’t want dogs on the beach at all. Over the last few weeks, an online petition has been gathering signatures in support of creating a seasonal dog beach in the northern part of the city. Resident Paul Perkins, who made the Change.org petition, has so far attracted more than 2,200 signatures. Currently, the only other cities with dog beaches in San Diego County are in Del Mar, Ocean Beach and Coronado, which means Oceanside residents who want to let their dogs off their leashes on the beach must drive 20 or more miles away to do so. The petition proposes to put a dog beach in North Oceanside between the two jetties stretching from the entrance to the harbor to the San Luis Rey River. The proposed dog beach would allow dogs off-leash and would be open during seasonal hours similar to the schedule at Del Mar’s North Beach, nicknamed "Dog Beach." Those in favor of the North Oceanside beach location believe the spot is ideal due to its location to bathrooms, parking and playground. The goal for supporters is to make Oceanside a “premiere city” for offering a dog beach in the region. With a dog beach, they say, the city could help keep visitors in Oceanside rather than send them further down south to experience another city’s dog beach. “When we bring our dog to the beach in Del Mar, we spend a good part of the day there going shopping and eating,” said resident Kevin Jacobs. “I’d much rather spend my money in Oceanside.” Councilmembers Kori
Jensen and Christopher Rodriguez brought the item to Council for consideration on Dec. 16. The two council members proposed having staff study the possibility of implementing a dog beach along with its effort to explore more dog park options

throughout Oceanside. “I’ve had a lot of emails from people wanting to have a dog beach,” Jensen said. “I think it’s something we need to look into.” Not everyone is completely sold on the idea of having a dog beach, however. Mark Warr, who manages vacation rentals near the proposed north beach location, believes a dog beach would create less demand for his rentals and harm property value. Warr also believes having a dog beach would harm the water quality and increase bacterial levels due to more dog waste being left behind. “I don’t believe dogs belong on the beach due to those reasons,” Warr said. Fellow resident Carolyn Kramer agreed with Warr, noting that the cities of San Clemente and Newport Beach recently voted down dog beaches. Those in support of having a dog beach offered to maintain the park to make sure it remains as spotless as possible. Others who were opposed to the dog beach proposal, like Mayor Esther Sanchez, noted Oceanside’s dwindling beaches as anoth-
supporters are still in favor of exploring other options along the beach as well. “All we’re asking for is a little slice of beach… to let our dogs run off-leash,” Perkins said. Council narrowly approved its direction for staff to look into the possibility of a dog beach with a 3-2, with Sanchez and Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim opposed.
ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council took steps this week to extend its temporary use permits for outdoor dining and alcohol service in the public rights-of-way and discussed the possibility of making permanent some of the city's COVID-19 regulations. Since June 2020, the city has issued 20 temporary encroachment permits allowing local businesses to utilize public rights-of-way for outdoor dining purposes. The Encinitas City Council expressed its strong desire to keep as much of the outdoor dining as permissible under state law. “From where I sit, figuring out a way to continue this practice of having these cafes and replacing space where 3000-pound vehicles sit to space where people get the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company is something that I would really want to prioritize,” Councilmember Tony Kranz said. The city's regulatory changes included allowing restaurants to establish outdoor dining spaces in public parking spaces, serving alcohol in outdoor dining sites and selling alcohol with to-go meals. “I support as much of our sidewalk dining as we can allow,” Mayor Catherine Blakespear said. “It is really good for our downtown businesses, for vibrancy, for creating a sense of place. This is a great opportunity and we should support that.” Annika Walden, executive director of Leucadia 101 Mainstreet, wrote to the council saying the businesses in Leucadia are still struggling during the ongoing pandemic.
“Our restaurants are still recuperating from the pandemic and the costs associated with expanding outdoors,” Walden wrote. Last month, Gov. Gavin Newsom extended an executive order allowing coastal zone cities to bypass state approval for temporary use permits through March 31, 2022. Newsom also recently signed Assembly Bill 61, which extends regulatory relief to businesses that sell alcohol. However, the bill does not specifically address outdoor dining. “What the governor’s order does is it allows us to skip Coastal Commission and so when we talk about removing the onstreet dining it really is because when the governor’s order goes away we then have to go through the Coastal Commission process,” City Manager Pam Antil said. While the state’s March 31, 2022, deadline could change due to the fluctuating nature of the pandemic, city staff has recommended the removal of all outdoor dining facilities in the public right of way by May 31 to give public works ample time to restore parking spaces. The city still showed interest in making the practice permanent but after the state order is lifted they must receive specific approval from the state before enacting any permanent use. City staff said the process can be more complicated in Encinitas as opposed to cities like San Diego, which has more ample parking available. “Also most of their areas are out,” said Roy Sapa’u, the city’s development services director, “That’s how they are able to move forward with their expansion of outdoor dining areas.” Staff will be returning to the council with further recommendations and options in the new year.

North County’s only senior-specialized dental center The Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center North County offers a gentle approach towards senior dental care. According to the CDC, nearly 1 in 5 seniors over the age of 65 have no teeth, 2 in 3 have gum disease, and 1 in 5 have untreated cavities. Additionally, most older adults take both prescription and over-thecounter drugs, many of which can cause dry mouth, increasing the risk of cavities. To meet local seniors’ unique oral healthcare needs, the dental center was opened in 2019, welcoming adults 55 and older. Take advantage of their unique services catered to older adults: personalized instruction on oral care, preventive care based on your needs, dental treatment while remaining in a wheelchair, same day crowns, specialized partials and dentures, and implants. Friendly staff guide patients through the care process, so you will know what to expect before, during and after your appointment. Dr. Becerra-Penagos, CEO and Dental Director comments, “We offer person-centered and age-specific comprehensive oral healthcare services from an experienced oral health team that specializes in dental services for older adults.” When booking an appointment at the Senior Dental Center North County, a member of their team will call you 24 hours prior for screening.

Because older adults are more at risk of COVID-19 complications, the dental center has implemented heightened safety protocols that include stateof-the-art PPE for all staff. They have also reduced scheduling for increased cleaning and social distancing between patients. At your visit, you will have
time to ask questions and understand your treatment options in a supportive, caring environment. Complex oral health conditions are the Senior Dental Center’s specialty, as told by one of their patients, Terry.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” — Irish proverb
At first, the thought of letting go of anything your loved one used or wore is unbearable. But there comes a time for most people when the decision is made to give items to family members and perhaps close friends or to sell or donate many of these items. Operation America Cares (in Escondido) is a valuable program that welcomes used paperbacks, DVDs, & CDs which they will then ship to military men & women stationed overseas. In addition to AM Vets, Disabled American Veterans, Vietnam Veterans of America, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill, you might consider donating items to the San Diego Rescue Mission or Brother Bennos in Oceanside.

regarding Opioid Use Disorder was obtained from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Substance Abuse & Mental Health Data Archive.” The distributors will pay the state $21 billion over 18 years, while Johnson & Johnson (and Janssen) will pay up to $5 billion over nine years with $3.7 billion in the first three years. In addition, Johnson & Johnson and Janssen cannot sell opioids for 10 years, cannot fund, provide grants to third parties or lobby for opioids. They must also share trial data under the Yale Open Data Access Project. According to the staff report, 70% of the funds received by the state will be allocated to each eligible jurisdiction. Carlsbad’s share is projected at $1.6 million from the two settlements, according to McMahon. The distributors' settlement is estimated at $1.3 million over 18 years and more than $311,048 over nine years from Johnson & Johnson. McMahon said the city began receiving information about how the state would allocate the money in late October. However, the city was not asked to provide any Carlsbad-specific opioid information to the state, although the allocation CROP of funds is based .93 .93 4.17 4.28
on information collected from federal agencies, according to McMahon. The city has several options as to how to spend the money, including allocating a specific amount back to the county or using it for “high impact abatement activities.” If the city keeps its allotment, 50% of the funds received in each calendar year must be spent on those activities, such as matching funds or operating costs for substance use disorder facilities within the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program; create new or expended treatment infrastructure; address needs in communities of color and vulnerable populations; division of people from the justice system into treatment; and youth drug addiction prevention. “California strongly supports continued investment in combatting the devastation that our communities have suffered because of the opioid epidemic,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in July. “The opioid epidemic continues to pose a serious threat to the health of Californians. In 2019, California experienced nearly 12,000 opioid-related emergency department visits and more than 3,000 deaths. If approved, this settlement agreement would provide an important investment in opioid treatment and prevention.”
CSU to require COVID booster shots for students, faculty, staff By City News Service
SAN MARCOS — The California State University announced this week that faculty, staff and students who are accessing university facilities or programs will be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot. Students and employees will be permitted to seek exemptions on medical and religious grounds. “Vaccination, including a booster when eligible, remains our most effective strategy against infection and severe disease,” CSU Chancellor Joseph Castro said. “This is particularly important in light of the rapid rise of cases of COVID-19 throughout the state and nation as the Omicron variant spreads. “Implementing the booster requirement now will help mitigate the potential spread of the vari-
ant on campuses as they repopulate in January after the winter break.” The new requirement calls for boosters to be received by Feb. 28, or six months after an individual received the final dose of the original vaccination, whichever is later. Individual campuses may establish an earlier date for compliance for students and non-represented employees based on local circumstances. The new requirement will take effect immediately upon implementation of the policy. Represented employees will not be subject to the booster requirement until the CSU concludes its meet-and-confer process with its labor unions. The policy applies to all 23 CSU campuses, including San Diego State and CSU San Marcos.

Four-story condos coming to South O By Samantha Nelson

Solana Beach ordinance regulates new construction By Tigist Layne
SOLANA BEACH — The Solana Beach City Council earlier this month approved an ordinance aimed at regulating new construction under California's Senate Bill 9, allowing the city to set its own standards within the parameters of the controversial state housing law. Officially passed in September, SB 9, authored by Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), allows up to four units and a total of eight market-rate units on lots that are currently zoned for single-family housing. Developers are not required to pay for any infrastructure improvements to those lots. Under state law, property owners can create a duplex or subdivide the property into two lots and build up to two units on each lot for a maximum of four units. Solana Beach’s Ordinance 521 allows two 825-square-foot units up to 16-feet in height on each lot and requires one parking space per unit. These are standards that meet the parameters outlined in SB 9. Mayor Lesa Heebner, who has been outspoken about her criticism of SB 9, said this ordinance will also encourage affordability. “It’s important to me, to the council and to our community, that our community priorities are also honored in the way [SB 9] is implemented. We’ve been trying to get some sort of moderate and lower-income housing, and the only way we can accomplish that since SB 9 does not mandate any affordability, is to use the phrasing that’s in SB 9 and choose 825 square feet so that square footage might be what helps us produce some probably moderately priced housing.” According to Heebner, the new state housing bill up-zoned single-family lots across the state, making them more expensive. By capping the square footage, the city hopes to create the best opportunity to provide moderately priced homes at 825 square feet, as larger homes “have no reasonable expectation of being affordable.” “What we’re hoping to do is make sure that the people who do take advantage of SB 9 are those that have good intentions of providing for people who can
live here, like somebody’s adult children, maybe a starter home that people can actually come here and live, rather than be outbid by speculators,” Heebner said. She added that requiring at least one parking space per unit is essential in a coastal city that must provide off-street parking for visitors and ensure access to the city’s beaches. The council received several public comments at its Dec. 8 meeting with many residents arguing that the ordinance is too restrictive and doesn’t allow for the building of larger homes. Kristin Brinner, a Solana Beach resident, said the ordinance should be more flexible. “It just doesn’t seem logical to limit someone to less than 50 percent of the square footage of housing area if they’re building a duplex compared to what they would get if they built a single home,” Brinner said. “We need more flexibility here so people can build homes for families.” The council approved the resolution 5-0. “Without this, we would end up overrun with development and it would be very sad because we’d have a lot more high-priced homes that locals could not afford, and we’d have more gentrification and people leaving our city than should be, that are the fabric of our community,” Councilwoman Jewel Edson said. In North County, the San Marcos City Council recently approved a resolution in support of the “Brand-Huang-Mendoza Tripartisan Land Use Initiative,” a statewide ballot initiative that if passed, would amend California’s constitution to allow local jurisdictions to override state housing laws, such as SB 9, in matters of land use and zoning regulations. “This is about preserving the uniqueness of our community…the initiative is an effort to take back our power in keeping our communities special, in keeping them the way that they were intended,” said San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones during a council meeting earlier this month. “The government has no business in playing a role in how we grow and legislate our communities,” Jones said.
OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside City Council has narrowly approved a controversial four-story, 54-unit residential development with 3,244 square feet of ground-floor commercial to be built at the corner of South Coast Highway and Morse Street despite concerns over increased parking and safety issues. The 1602 South Coast Hwy project proposed by Hallmark Development Corporation was first heard by the Planning Commission in September and continued into October, where it received a final 5-1 vote of approval. The project was appealed later that month by Karie Lasko, a concerned nearby resident who along with many other of her neighbors fear the project will worsen parking and make the already unsafe roadways even more dangerous for pedestrians and bicyclists. Lasko and others wanted the project to remove its fourth floor and decrease the number of units while also adding more parking for the project’s future residents so as not to impede on the existing residents’ parking. The project is South Oceanside’s first four-story development. “It’s not unreasonable to ask for fewer units so the new residents of the Hallmark development are not as frustrated as the current residents are,” Lasko said. The project proposes 1 parking space per each of its 34 two-bedroom units, and 30 spaces for its 20 three-bedroom units. There are also two guest spaces and 11 commercial parking spaces which can be used by residents during after-business hours, making for a total of 77 parking spaces. “Adding 54 units with one-and-a-half parking spaces is unrealistic,” Lasko said. Lasko and other residents opposed to the project are also concerned about its setback waiver. The appellant noted that the city’s Local Coastal Program requires buildings with two

frontage lots to have a 15foot setback, however, the project asked for a zero-foot setback instead. Shari Mackin said this means that cars entering the project’s parking garage will exit out onto the sidewalk and create a hazard for passing pedestrians. Mackin noted this is what happened to Logan Lipton, a 12-year-old boy who was hit and killed while riding his bike to school in 2015 by a truck driver pulling out of a driveway from the Oceanside RV Park near Oceanside Boulevard and South Coast Highway. Mackin argued the project’s high density and lack of parking located close to South Oceanside Elementary would go against the goal to improve pedestrian safety in the area after what happened to Lipton. However, according to Senior Planner Scott Nightingale, the project meets all city and state development standards and even exceeds them in certain cases without creating any adverse impacts on public health and safety. Entrance to the development’s parking garage would be on South Freeman Street. Nightingale said the project’s site distance requirements for ingress and egress are at 155 feet, which exceeds the city’s 150-foot requirement. Staff also reviewed the appellants’ concerns
Vista girl reports kidnap attempt By City News Service
VISTA — Authorities were investigating the reported attempted kidnapping of a 13-year-old girl in Vista on Dec. 17. The Roosevelt Middle School student told investigators she was walking to a bus stop in the area of Georgia Lane and West Los Angeles Drive at about 8:30 a.m. Monday when a white van with no license plates passed her, then made a U-turn and stopped near her, according to the Sheriff’s Department. At that point, a man with “spiky'' brown hair got out of a passenger seat in the vehicle, told the teenager in Spanish to get into the van and grabbed her by the shoulder and backpack, the girl told authorities. “She says she was able
to escape by striking the man with her elbow,” Lt. Dave Buether said. “She then ran to the SUSPECT bus stop, and the van drove away.” The student described the would-be abductor as a thin Hispanic man wearing sunglasses and dressed in black clothing, including a sweatshirt and scarf or mask over the lower part of his face. Anyone with information was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477 or visit sdcrimestoppers.org. Tipsters eligible for cash reward and may remain anonymous.
regarding parking, noting that all requirements are met under the state’s density bonus law. Because the project proposes more than 10% of its units (five units) to be dedicated for very low-income housing, which qualifies under the state’s density bonus law to allow the project to add an additional 14 units than what typically would be allowed. Projects that fall under the density bonus law are difficult to appeal or deny unless quantifiable evidence proving they cause adverse public health impacts can be found. Mayor Esther Sanchez believed there was enough of such evidence and motioned to grant the appeal, which ultimately failed by a 2-3 vote. Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim was the only other council member to support Sanchez’s motion, and both Sanchez and Keim voted against the project’s approval. City Attorney John Mullen said had Council approved the appeal, the city would have been put at substantial risk of litigation from the state. “The state has made it extremely difficult to deny density bonus projects that comply with the objective requirements of the zoning and general plan,” Mullen said. “I think it’s undisputed that this project complies with those objective
requirements, so really the issue is can you find a specific, adverse impact. If you move forward, it will likely be litigated.” The project is considered in-fill development, which the city has pledged to advance in future developments to meet its regional housing requirements. “To reduce its height would reduce density, which is totally contradicting our general plan and the state’s current legislation,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez and Councilmembers Kori Jensen and Peter Weiss were the majority of Council who approved the project. Still, Rodriguez and Weiss both reiterated their support for a potential ballot initiative along with Keim to bring more local control back to local municipalities to prevent issues with projects like this. Though Weiss said understands the need for the state’s density bonus law in certain circumstances, he disagrees with its application on this project given the location. “I don’t think this is the right place for it, but I think our hands are tied,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a huge parking problem.” Weiss asked staff to explore ways that future projects in South Oceanside can be prevented from building four stories without conflicting with state law.

E-bikes pilot to launch Jan. 5 in Encinitas By Bill Slane

San Marcos hiking trail named after slain resident By Stephen Wyer
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council will name a popular hiking trail in San Marcos in honor of Aris Keshishian, a 20-year-old San Marcos resident who was murdered outside his home earlier this year. The council voted last week to officially name the nearly one-mile trail around the perimeter of Discovery Lake the “Gratitude Trail, In Memory of Aris Keshishian.” The city will begin erecting signs designating the new trail name around the lake in early January, according to Mayor Rebecca Jones. “I think that as a city council, it’s important to have a compassionate aspect to our job, it’s not always setting policy, but
sometimes it’s leading our community in healing when you have a tragic situation like what happened with Aris,” Jones said. Jones noted that Keshishian, who lived in the Stone Canyon community just south of Discovery Lake, had often traversed the trail around the lake during his lifetime. Keshishian was killed in August after being attacked and stabbed to death outside of his home on the 1100 block of Via Vera Cruz while walking his dog in the neighborhood. 20-year-old Kellon Razdan, an elementary school classmate of Keshishian, was subsequently arrested in connection with the murder. Authorities have not publicly stated what motive Razdan may have had for the attack.
Oceanside creates position to manage coastal resources By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — The city is looking for someone to manage its coastal zone resources and needs, a position that some residents, who are concerned about the loss of sand on city beaches, have been pushing for months. The Oceanside City Council on Dec. 15 approved the city’s new Coastal Zone Administrator position, which is meant to provide support and further coordination and management relating to Oceanside’s coastal-related programs. The coastal zone administrator will identify and arrange for the implementation of new and existing ways to better manage at-risk coastal resources, develop policies to manage sea-level rise, provide guidance on coastal issues to residents and other staff, and manage the city’s sand replenishment program. SOS Oceanside, a local group dedicated to preserving the city’s beaches and coastal access, has been asking the city to create the coastal zone administrator program since earlier this year. “We really need somebody to focus on all these kinds of beach activities that are going on,” said Steve Maschue, vice director of SOS Oceanside, at the previous Dec. 1 council meeting. The position will work with agencies like SAN-
DAG, Coastal Commission, state parks, state Coastal Conservancy and the Army Corps of Engineers. Additionally, the administrator will create reports for city staff and officials, apply for grants regarding coastal issues, review requests regarding coastal impacts, conduct field inspections, assure compliance with regulations and act as a liaison with other city departments. The coastal zone administrator position will be initially funded using the city’s American Rescue Plan Act funds designated for sand replenishment.
ENCINITAS — The popularity of e-bikes has exploded in California but their steep cost can pose a barrier to entry for those curious about trying the growing trend. BCycle, a subsidiary of Trek Bicycles (which also owns Electra Bikes headquartered in Encinitas), has announced it is launching a new bikeshare program on Jan. 5 in Encinitas, offering interested residents a chance to ride without a huge financial commitment. The BCycle pilot program will launch with 11 docking stations along Coast Highway 101 from Leucadia Oaks Park and south to Glen Park in Cardiff. “We’ve been working on this for a while and we’re excited to have their equipment installed and bikes will be getting set up and getting out in the field in early January,” Crystal Najera, the city's sustainability manager, told The Coast News. The program is a fully docked system, meaning e-bikes can only be taken and returned to the docking stations already in place along Coast Highway. BCycle will be operating a bike-share program in Encinitas with a fleet of e-bikes. Photo courtesy of BCycle Encinitas originally had an agreement with a bikeshare provider that used a hybrid system of geotagging areas for e-bike drop-off and pick-up, but after they were unable to fulfill the city's needs, Encinitas circled back to BCycle. “I think BCycle will probably let the dust settle on the launch but I’m sure they’ll start looking at more locations to expand after that,” Najera said. “I think their intention is to roughly double the number of locations that you can travel to and they’re looking at locations both in the public right of way and we can place stations at private property locations.” Part of the BCycle pilot program will be to evaluate other areas in the city that utilize e-bikes. “Their systems are pretty flexible,” Najera said. “They could install a system

and decide that one is not getting used super heavily and it could be switched to another location BCycle's home base will be inside its sister company Electra Bikes on Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas — a local connection that was one of many reasons the city is pleased to have BCycle operate its bikeshare program. By 2023, e-bikes are expected to make up a market generating $20 billion in revenue and the sometimes hefty cost of the popular mode of transportation is a major factor in those earnings. But with a new bikeshare option, Encinitas residents will have a new way to use an e-bike that could be much more economical for some. Rides are purchased through a mobile app for riders 18 years of age or older. Rides cost $7 per 30 minutes but there are also membership options for residents that offer cheaper or unlimited rides. “There’s an annual membership that gives you free, half-hour-or-less rides anywhere,” Najera said. "So I think that’s a really nice feature for anyone that really thinks they’re going to use it all the time." The annual membership costs $150 from BCycle but they also offer a monthly membership for riders for $30 a month. Both memberships give users unlimited
free 30 minute rides and members will get charged $3 per 30 minutes past the initial block of time. There has been some concern from both residents and some on the city council about the safety of cyclists, pedestrians and motorists with the increased popularity of e-bikes. The city hopes increased e-bike education among adult riders will help to curb potential safety is-
sues. “Our parks and rec department is putting on a bunch of classes and providing education,” Najera said. “We’re continuing to do that and we definitely know it’s a big concern of the community so we’re trying to do whatever we can to make sure that everyone on an e-bike is well informed of what the rules of the road are.”

Araiza becomes only second unanimous first-team All-American in SDSU history By City News Service
REGION — Following one of the best seasons for a punter in college history, San Diego State University’s Matt Araiza became the second unanimous firstteam All-American in program history Dec. 16 when the NCAA released its consensus All-America team. Araiza joined running back Marshall Faulk — selected in 1992 and 1993 — as the only Aztecs to earn unanimous first-team All-America accolades. Araiza, who attended Rancho Bernardo High School, is one of 10 unanimous All-Americans this season. Araiza, Faulk, offensive tackle Kyle Turley (1997) and running back Rashaad Penny (2017) are the SDSU players who have been named to the All-America Team. Araiza, who recently won the Ray Guy Award for the nation’s best collegiate punter, punted 76 times for 3,904 yards, ranking first in Football Bowl Subdivision history in punt average with 51.4 yards per average punt, 60-yard punts with 18 and 50-yard punts with 39.

Of his 76 punts, 36 landed inside the 20-yard line. One of only four players in the nation who handled all three kicking duties — punts, PATs/field goals and kickoffs — Araiza has added 17 field goals, including three 50-plus yarders, and has kicked off 67 times — excluding onside kicks — for a 65.06 average with 56 going for a touchback.
Araiza has six punts of at least 70 yards, the most in the country, including the longest at 86 yards. San Diego State, meanwhile, set a school record with 12 victories this season after knocking off No. 24 University of Texas at San Antonio, 38-24, in the Frisco Bowl on Tuesday night in Frisco, Texas. Both teams finished the season 12-2.

SDSU, UCSD athletes benefit from NCAA’s new NIL policy By Stephen Wyer
REGION — For the first time ever, student-athletes at major regional colleges, including the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University, are profiting from their name, image and likeness, or NIL, after national rules prohibiting such benefits for players were lifted earlier this year. In July, the National College Athletes Association, or NCAA, unveiled a new interim policy allowing collegiate athletes to take ownership over their athletic careers, breaking over 100 years of established policy and paving the way for sponsorships, endorsement deals and social media marketing campaigns. For UCSD third-year tennis player Sophie Pearson, the new policy has had life-changing effects for her and many of her fellow athletes, many of whom she said have used NIL to market themselves and establish a second income. “I think NIL’s been really nice especially for smaller sports that may not receive as much spotlight, such as tennis or golf…it’s really nice to have something extra to help when we can’t work part-time jobs because of our schedules,” Pearson said. A nanoengineering major from Longmont, Colorado, Pearson said she has sponsorship deals from Playbook, an online platform that connects fitness coaches with clientele, and Revly, a swim and activewear sports brand. For Playbook, Pearson has appeared in television advertisements and gets compensated for her social media posts promoting the platform. For Revly, Pearson said she gets paid to show off the brand’s apparel on her various social media channels. In the aftermath of the NCAA’s policy revision in July, social media platforms Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook have leveled the playing field for collegiate athletes, allowing virtually any student-athlete with a large social media following to take advantage of NIL, said Adrienne Larmett, a senior manager at Baker Tilly’s risk advisory practice focusing on higher education. “Athletic performance isn’t the only determining factor in making these deals — it’s about social media presence, followers, and being marketable,” Larmett said. “That can really have an equalizing effect…it’s about followers, that means anybody can really engage and participate in NIL if they have a social media presence.” Representatives for California State University San Marcos, Palomar College, and the University of San Diego — all Division II athletics programs — each told The Coast News that
NIL has had little or no impact on their student-athletes. “It hasn’t really had any benefit for D-2 schools so far,” said Mindy Mills, CSU San Marcos’s sports information director.

METALLIC BALLOONS AND POWER LINES SHOULD NEVER PARTY TOGETHER.
The way we celebrate these days has changed. But one thing hasn’t. Though metallic balloons seem harmless, they can actually be dangerous around electric power lines. The metal in the balloons can cause the line to arc and spark. So keep balloons securely tied down or weighted when outdoors. Always deflate and dispose of them when the party’s over. As we all return to our normal celebrations, think about using festive rubber or vinyl balloons instead.

CITY OF ENCINITAS ORDINANCE 2021-25 AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ENCINITAS, CALIFORNIA, PERTAINING TO DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS FOR URBAN LOT SPLITS AND TWO-UNIT RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN SINGLE-FAMILY ZONES TO IMPLEMENT SENATE BILL 9 WHEREAS, in 2019 the State of California Legislature declared that “California has a housing supply and affordability crisis of historic proportions;” WHEREAS, on September 16, 2021, Governor Newsom signed into law Senate Bill 9 (“SB 9”), entitled the “California Home Act”. Among other provisions, this bill adds Sections 65852.21 and 66411.7 to the Government Code and becomes effective on January 1, 2022; WHEREAS, SB 9 requires cities and counties to ministerially approve a parcel map for an urban lot split and/or a proposed housing development containing a maximum of two residential units within a single-family residential zone, if the two-unit or subdivision project meets certain statutory criteria; WHEREAS, state law allows a local agency to adopt an ordinance to implement the provisions in SB 9; WHEREAS, the City of Encinitas (“City”) desires to adopt an ordinance to implement SB 9; WHEREAS, this Ordinance is adopted as an urgency ordinance pursuant to Government Code Section 65858. The facts constituting the urgency are as follows: a) SB 9 specifies that proposed projects and subdivisions cannot be proposed in prohibited locations under Government Code Section 65913.4(a)(6)(B)-(K), such as in an earthquake fault zone, lands under conservation easement, a federally designated flood plain, and high fire hazard severity zones as defined under state law unless specified mitigation measures are imposed to reduce the hazards b) SB 9 further restricts the standards and regulations that local agencies, including the City, may impose on qualifying two-unit or subdivision projects. For example, SB 9 specifies that local agencies may impose only objective zoning, subdivision, and design standards that do not conflict with the statutes, but such standards must not physically preclude a unit size of 800 square feet. In addition, SB 9 permits a local agency to deny a proposed qualifying two-unit or subdivision project only if the agency’s Building Official makes a written finding based on preponderance of the evidence that the proposed project would have a specific, adverse impact upon public health and safety or the physical environment, which is a very high standard for municipalities to meet under the statute. c) A number of parcels within the City are within high fire hazard severity zones, floodplains and/or covered by conservation/open space easements. The City has substantial interests in protecting the community against these hazards and restrictions in promoting development projects. In order to protect the health safety and welfare of the community it is necessary to ensure that all SB 9 projects comply with existing local fire hazard mitigation measures. d) The standards contained in the new state law include no objective zoning, subdivision, or design standards. In order to protect the public health safety and welfare of the Encinitas community, it is necessary to ensure that all SB 9 projects comply with the City’s existing objective standards which do not conflict with the provisions of SB 9. e) The City has received multiple public inquiries from architects, developers, and residents regarding SB 9 development projects and the new state law, underscoring the need for the City to develop guidance on the implementation of the requirements of the bill. WHEREAS, SB 9 specifically authorizes local agencies to impose objective zoning, subdivision, and design standards consistent with the bill’s provisions, and to adopt an ordinance to implement its provisions. SB 9 further provides that such ordinances are not considered a “project” under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The ordinance is further exempt from CEQA under CEQA Guidelines Sections 15301 and 15303; WHEREAS, on December 15, 2021, the City Council considered the following amendment for the purpose of amending its local regulatory scheme pertaining to single-family home developments and subdivisions in a manner that complies with the new state law and is consistent with California Government Code Sections 65852.21 and 66411.7, as amended; WHEREAS, California Government Code Section 65858 authorizes the City to adopt an interim urgency measure by a fourfifths (4/5ths) vote where necessary to protect the public health, safety, and welfare without following the procedures otherwise required prior to adoption of a zoning ordinance; WHEREAS, any interim urgency measure adopted pursuant to Government Code Section 65858 shall be of no further force and effect forty-five (45) days from its date of adoption unless extended by the legislative body. During the effective term of the urgency ordinance, City staff intends to undertake further study and present its recommendations to the City Council regarding permanent revisions to the City’s Municipal Code pertaining to SB 9 residential development and subdivision projects consistent with the goals and policies of the City’s General Plan, California Planning and Zoning Law, and the provisions of California Government Code Section 65858; and WHEREAS, the City Council finds and determines that the immediate preservation of the public health, safety and welfare requires that this Ordinance be enacted as an urgency ordinance pursuant to Government Code Section 65858 and take effect immediately upon adoption. Therefore, this Ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety and welfare and its urgency is hereby declared. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of Encinitas, California, hereby ordains as follows: SECTION 1: The recitals above are each incorporated by reference and adopted as findings by the City Council. SECTION 2: The City Council hereby finds that this Ordinance is adopted under the authority of SB 9 to apply provisions, including objective development and design standards for an urban lot split and/or a proposed housing development containing two residential units within a single-family residential zone when the project meets certain statutory criteria. SECTION 3: The City Council further finds that:
1. The interim urgency ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety because the subdivision of lots and design and construction of single-family residences, duplexes and accessory dwelling units pursuant to Senate Bill 9 (SB9) without adequate standards can cause: land use and site development conflicts and incompatibilities including public safety, visual, privacy, acoustic and aesthetic impacts which would negatively impact the public welfare and the unique quality and character of the City. 2. This Ordinance provides for standards and procedures, as shown in Exhibit A, attached hereto, and incorporated herein by this reference, for implementing SB9. SECTION 4: This Ordinance is exempt from the provisions of CEQA pursuant to Government Code Sections 65852.21(j) and 66411.7(n), because the adoption of an ordinance to implement SB9 shall not be considered a project under Division 13 (commencing with Section 21000) of the Public Resources Code. Further, Section 15301 exempts from environmental review the addition of up to 10,000 square feet if the project is in an area where all public services and facilities are available to allow for maximum development permissible in the City’s General Plan. All of Encinitas single-family residential areas eligible for SB 9 approval meet these two criteria, and it is anticipated that each project undertaken pursuant to SB 9 will not add more than 10,000 square feet of new development. Finally, Section 15303 (new construction/conversion) exempts from review the construction of up to six new residential structures in urbanized areas. Under the proposed ordinance, the maximum number of new residential structures that could be constructed pursuant to a lot split combined with new construction is less than six. Therefore, staff recommends that the City Council finds that the proposed urgency ordinance is not subject to further environmental review. SECTION 5: If any section, sentence, clause, or phrase of this Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal, or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted this Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional. SECTION 6: This ordinance is an urgency ordinance enacted under California Government Code 65858. This urgency ordinance is effective upon adoption by a four-fifths (4/5) vote of the City Council. This urgency ordinance shall be of no further force and effect forty-five (45) days from its date of adoption unless extended by the City Council. The City Clerk is directed to prepare and have published a summary of the Ordinance within 15 days following adoption, indicating the votes cast. PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Encinitas, California, held on the 15th day of December 2021. \Catherine S. Blakespear ATTEST: \Kathy Hollywood, City Clerk APPROVED AS TO FORM: \Leslie E. Devaney, City Attorney CERTIFICATION I, Kathy Hollywood, City Clerk of the City of Encinitas, California, do hereby certify under penalty of perjury that the foregoing ordinance was duly and regularly adopted at a meeting of the City Council on this 15th day of December 2021, by the following vote, to wit: AYES: Blakespear, Hinze, Kranz, Lyndes, Mosca NOES: None ABSENT: None ABSTAIN: None IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and affixed the official seal of the City of Encinitas, California, this 15th day of December, 2021. \Kathy Hollywood, City Clerk

Not Applicable to Nonconforming Development. RS11 zoned lots already developed with two or more existing residential units, nonresidential uses, or mixed-use, shall not use the provisions of this section to add floor area, add residential units, or make any other alterations to the buildings or site otherwise prohibited by this Title, unless the development complies with all of the standards of this section. E. Development Standards. Any construction of a two-unit residential development shall conform to all property development regulations of the zone in which the property is located including, but not limited to, height limits, setback, lot coverage, landscape, and floor area ratio (FAR), as well as all fire, health, safety and building provisions of this title, subject to the following exceptions: 1. No setback shall be required for an existing structure, or a structure constructed in the same location and to the same dimensions as an existing structure. 2. For all other dwelling units proposed in connection with a twounit residential development, a minimum setback of four feet, or the applicable setback for the zoning district, whichever is less, is allowed from the rear and side property lines. However, a new dwelling unit utilizing a reduced setback from the base zone shall be permitted to build to a maximum 16-feet in height. 3. Limits on lot coverage, floor area ratio, open space, and size must permit two units of 800 square feet each in connection with a two-unit residential development. Notwithstanding the above, if the application of an objective standard would require one or both units to be less than 800 square feet, such standard shall be waived only to the extent necessary to allow construction of a unit(s) of at least 800 square feet. 4. For a two-unit residential development connected to an onsite wastewater treatment system, the applicant shall provide a percolation test completed within the last 5 years, or, if the percolation test has been recertified, within the last 10 years. 5. All dwelling units created in connection with a two-unit residential development shall have independent exterior access. 6. A development is not eligible for approval as a two-unit residential project if it includes a request for an exception to any objective standards, beyond those necessary to obtain an 800 sq. ft. unit, by applying for a variance, modification, exception, waiver, or other discretionary approval for height, density, setbacks, open yard, land use, or similar design or development standard. F. Parking. One off-street parking space, which may be covered or uncovered, is required for each unit in a two-unit residential development, except as exempted below. 1. Parking Exemptions.

Replacement Parking Required. When an existing garage, carport, or other covered parking structure is converted or demol-
ished in order to construct a new unit, at least one replacement parking space, which may be covered or uncovered, must be provided for each unit, unless the project is exempt from parking requirements. G. Access to a Public Street. Every dwelling unit shall face or have frontage upon a public street or permanent means of access to a public street, using at least one of the methods described below. 1. Vehicular Access. When automobile parking is required or proposed, vehicular access to a public street or alley shall be provided by a paved driveway that complies with the minimum width, slope, materials, and other standards consistent with the California Fire Code and the City’s Off-street Parking and Street Design Standards. 2. Shared Driveways. A driveway may be shared by no more than two lots. H. Design Review. All two-unit residential developments shall be subject to the adopted objective design standards in effect at the time a complete application is submitted, as applicable to either new construction or exterior alterations, which shall be reviewed ministerially by the Development Services Director, or designee. I. Disapproval of a Two-Unit Residential Development. The Development Services Director, or designee, shall not approve a Two-Unit Residential Development under any of the following circumstances: 1. The project proposes creation of more than two units total as described in Section C of Two-Unit Residential Development described above . 2. The urban lot split does not meet the requirements of Title 30 Zoning. 3. Based on a preponderance of the evidence, the building official finds that the proposed housing development project would have a specific, adverse impact, as defined and determined in paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) of Government Code Section 65589.5, upon public health and safety or the physical environment and for which there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific, adverse impact. 4. The Two-Unit Residential Development does not comply with applicable, objective requirements imposed by Title 30 Zoning, City’s Design Guidelines, and this title. Any decision to disapprove a Two-Unit Residential Development shall be accompanied by a finding identifying the applicable, objective requirements imposed. Urban Lot Splits On condition that Government Code Sections 65852.21 and 66411.7 are not repealed, qualifying Urban Lot Splits in the RR, RR-1, RR-2, R-3, R-5, R-8, and RS-11 zones shall be located, developed, and used in compliance with the following: A. The Development Services Director, or designee, shall ministerially approve a parcel map for an urban lot split only if the parcel map for the urban lot split meets all of the following requirements: 1. Both newly created parcels shall be no smaller than 1,200 square feet. Both newly created parcels shall be of approximately equal lot area, which for purposes of this paragraph shall mean that one parcel shall not be smaller than 40 percent of the lot area of the original parcel proposed for subdivision. 2. The parcel being subdivided is located within an RR, RR-1, RR-2, R-3, R-5, R-8, or RS-11 zone permitting single family dwellings described in Title 30 Zoning. 3. The parcel being subdivided is not located on a site that is any of the following: a. Either prime farmland or farmland of statewide importance, as defined pursuant to United States Department of Agriculture land inventory and monitoring criteria, as modified for California, and designated on the maps prepared by the Farmland Mapping and Monitoring Program of the Department of Conservation, or land zoned or designated for agricultural protection or preservation by a local ballot measure that was approved by the voters of that jurisdiction. b. Wetlands, as defined in the United States Fish and Wildlife Service Manual, Part 660 FW 2 (June 21, 1993). c. Within a very high fire hazard severity zone, as determined by the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection pursuant to Government Code Section 51178, or within a high or very high fire hazard severity zone as indicated on maps adopted by the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection pursuant to Section 4202 of the Public Resources Code. This subparagraph does not apply to sites excluded from the specified hazard zones by a local agency, pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 51179 of the Government Code, or sites that have adopted fire hazard mitigation measures pursuant to existing building standards or state fire mitigation measures applicable to the development. Two-unit residential development shall not be permitted within the Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones, unless existing building standards within Very High Fire Hazard Zones include the high fire construction standards adopted or enforced by the City, as determined by the Building Official or the Fire Marshall. No variance or modification to any Fire Code requirements or high fire construction standards shall be permitted. d.

Lands under conservation easement. Urban Lot Splits shall not be permitted on a lot located within property included on the State Historic Resources Inventory or the National Register. Urban Lot Splits shall not include the demolition, substantial redevelopment, or alteration of any of the following types of housing: a. Housing that is subject to a recorded covenant, ordinance, or law that restricts rents to levels affordable to persons and families of moderate, low, or very low income. b. Housing subject to any form of rent or price control through a public entity’s valid exercise of its police power. c. Housing that has been occupied by a tenant in the last three years. d.

Replacement Housing. If any existing dwelling unit is proposed to be demolished, the applicant must comply with the replacement housing provisions of Government Code Section 66300(d). The parcel has not been established through prior exercise of an urban lot split as provided for in this Chapter. Neither the owner of the parcel being subdivided nor any person acting in concert with the owner has previously subdivided an adjacent parcel using an urban lot split as provided for in this Section. All easements required for the provision of public services and facilities shall be dedicated or conveyed by an instrument in a form acceptable to the Director of the Development Services Department. Units constructed on an urban lot split subdivision approved pursuant to this chapter shall be subject to and comply with the minimum setback requirements specified above in the Two-Unit Residential Development Section. Each unit located on a parcel created pursuant to this chapter shall have vehicular ingress and egress to the public right-ofway, which shall be either through access over land that is part of the parcel or evidenced by a recorded easement in favor of the parcel requiring right-of-way access. A minimum of one off-street parking space (covered/uncovered) shall be provided per unit. No parking is required if the parcel is located within one-half mile walking distance of either a high-quality transit corridor, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 21155 of the Public Resources Code, or a major transit stop, as defined in Section 21064.3 of the Public Resources Code; or if there is a designated parking space for a car share vehicle located within one block of the parcel. The uses allowed on a parcel created pursuant to this chapter shall be limited to residential uses.
B. Application of Objective Standards. Development proposed on lots created by an urban lot split shall comply with all objective zoning standards, objective subdivision standards, and objective design review standards applicable to the parcel based on the underlying zoning; provided, however, that the application of such standards shall be modified if the standards would have the effect of physically precluding the construction of two units on either of the resulting parcels created pursuant to this chapter or would result in a unit size of less than 800 square feet. Any waivers or reductions of development standards shall be the minimum waiver or reduction necessary to avoid physically precluding two units of 800 square feet per unit, and no additional variances shall be permitted. C. Disapproval of urban lot split map. The Development Services Director, or designee, shall not approve an urban lot split map under any of the following circumstances: 1. The land proposed for division is a lot or parcel which was
T he C oast News
part of an urban lot split that the City previously approved. The subdivision proposes creation of more than two lots or more than four units total among the two lots as described in Section C of Two-Unit Residential Development described above. The urban lot split does not meet the requirements of Chapter 24 Subdivisions. Based on a preponderance of the evidence, the building official finds that the proposed housing development project would have a specific, adverse impact, as defined and determined in paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) of Government Code Section 65589.5, upon public health and safety or the physical environment and for which there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific, adverse impact. The urban lot split does not comply with applicable, objective requirements imposed by the Subdivision Map Act, Chapter 24 Subdivisions, and this title. Any decision to disapprove an urban lot split map shall be accompanied by a finding identifying the applicable, objective requirements imposed by the Subdivision Map Act, Chapter 24 Subdivisions, and this title.
is a “qualified nonprofit corporation” as described in Section 214.15 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
D. Notice of decision. Within 60 calendar days after a complete application for an urban lot split map is filed with the City, the Development Services Director, or designee, shall ministerially approve or disapprove such map. The time limit specified in this paragraph may be extended by mutual consent of the applicant and the city. If the urban lot split map is disapproved, the reasons therefore shall be stated in the notice of disapproval.
F. Coastal Development Permit. Where a Coastal Development Permit is required pursuant to EMC Chapter 30.80 for Two-Unit Residential Developments and Urban Lot Splits, the authority to review an application for a Coastal Development Permit is designated as follows: 1. Applications shall be reviewed by the Director of Development Services, or designee, without a public hearing in accordance with Government Code Sections 65852.21 and 66411.7.When a proposed development only involves the addition of a Two-Unit Residential Development or an Urban Lot Split pursuant to the sections above, the Director of Development Services Department, or designee, shall not issue a decision on the application until at least 10 calendar days after notice having been given pursuant to EMC Section 30.80.080. The Director of Development Services, or designee, may receive written comments regarding the application and consider such written comments during the review of the application, but the Director of Development Services, or designee, shall not conduct a public hearing on the application. The decision of the Director of Development Services, or designee, concerning an application for a Coastal Development Permit pursuant to this Section shall constitute the final action of the City. In the coastal zone areas appealable to the California Coastal Commission, the decisions of the Director of Development Services, or designee, made pursuant to this Section may be appealed to the California Coastal Commission in accordance with EMC Section 30.80.160. 2. Actions on applications shall be consistent with the provisions of the applicable zone and the policies and development standards of the City of Encinitas certified Local Coastal Program and Chapter 3 of the California Coastal Act. Review of a coastal development permit application for a Two-Unit Residential Development and/or an Urban Lot Split consistent with the Sections above, shall comply with all procedures and development standards of EMC Chapter 30.80 (Coastal Development Permit), aside from the requirements to conduct a public hearing and City appeals.
Other Standards A. Addressing. All addresses for residential lots using a shared driveway or pedestrian pathway must be displayed at their closest point of access to a public street for emergency responders to the satisfaction of the City Fire Marshal. B. Recorded Covenant. Prior to the issuance of a building permit for a two-unit residential development dwelling unit, the property owner shall record a covenant with the County Recorder’s Office, the form and content of which is satisfactory to the City Attorney. The covenant shall notify future owners of the approved size and attributes of the units, and minimum rental period restrictions. The covenant shall also reflect the number of units approved and provide that no more than two primary residential units and two accessory dwelling units, for a total of four units, may be created on any single parcel or on any two parcels created using urban lot split subdivision procedures. If an urban lot split subdivision was approved, the covenant shall provide that the parcels may not be further subdivided using the urban lot split provisions, and no variances shall be permitted other than those code deviations expressly allowed by this Chapter. This covenant shall remain in effect so long as a two-unit residential development exists on the parcel. C. Affidavit – Prior to issuance of a parcel map approval for Urban Lot Split, the applicant shall provide a signed affidavit stating that the applicant intends to occupy one of the housing units as their principal residence for a minimum of three years from the date of approval of the lot split, the form and content of which is satisfactory to the City Attorney. This subsection shall not apply to an applicant that is a “community land trust,” as defined in clause (ii) of subparagraph (C) of paragraph (11) of subdivision (a) of Section 402.1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code or
D. Rental Terms. Any unit constructed as part of a two-unit development or on a parcel created by an urban lot split may be rented separately; however, rental terms shall be for 30 consecutive days or more and rental terms shall not allow termination of the tenancy prior to the expiration of at least one 31-day period occupancy by the same tenant. E. Building Permit Required. Two-residential unit developments shall comply with applicable state and local building codes and shall require approval of a building permit. The City shall ministerially approve or disapprove a complete building permit application for a two-unit residential development in compliance with state law and this section. 1. A two-residential unit development may be denied if the Building Official finds that the proposed development project would have a specific, adverse impact upon public health and safety or the physical environment and for which there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific, adverse impact.

The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically
entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist 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 833-5610243 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site WWW. SALES.BDFGROUP.COM for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 00000008872103. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder”, you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after
the date of the trustee sale, you can call 833-561-0243, or visit this internet website WWW. SALES.BDFGROUP.COM using the file number assigned to this case 00000008872103 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

a less restrictive approach when it comes to NIL, similarly mandating that student-athletes follow NCAA guidelines but differing from UCSD in allowing the usage of school facilities for self-promotion, according to SDSU athletic compliance director Tim Lanski. “Our policy is more permissive, our mindset is that our students should have a lot of freedom…we are internally committed to students doing this and taking advantage of this quite honestly,” Lanski said. “This is all new and there are so many unanswered questions, but overall this is a good thing for our student-athletes, and we’ll evolve over time and figure out this space better.” However, Lanski agreed with Tourial that the lack of a national standard on NIL continues to create challenges for athletics programs when it comes to ensuring student compliance, asserting that there is a “desperate need for federal legislation” on the issue. Earlier this month, SDSU announced a partnership between the university's athletic department and consulting firms TeamAltemus and Anomaly Sports Group to help student-athletes navigate the NIL landscape. The partnership will "provide NIL resources to assist student-athletes with the tools to protect their NIL and the money generated from it while educating on questions to ask throughout the process of NIL and potentially selecting a marketing representative," an SDSU media release said. PLAYING BY THE RULES In order to protect their athletes, it’s key that institutions of higher education invest time and resources into educating student-athletes on the applicable regulations concerning NIL, as a failure to
do so could put NIL participants in jeopardy of being ineligible for the NCAA, said Larmett. At UCSD, the athletics program utilizes COMPASS, an independent third-party program that allows students to submit their NIL deals through the vendor’s app, which then checks to ensure that the deals are in compliance with NCAA regulations as well as the relevant state and school policies, Tourial said. Similarly, SDSU uses a combination of external vendors, including the compliance monitoring systems ARMS and Opendorse, to educate athletes and ensure ongoing eligibility, according to Lanski. Opendorse goes beyond helping with compliance and works directly with SDSU athletes to help them better market themselves and profit from their NIL, he added. “Our partners…assist us with student-athlete assessment, education, and performance…they work with athletes on social education and marketing, increasing their social media following and things like that,” Lanski said. In October, the entire SDSU football team struck a $20,000 endorsement deal with a nationwide moving franchise, according to a report from the San Diego Union-Tribune. Larmett expressed that there’s some evidence that schools like SDSU that have the resources to help students increase their NIL benefits may have a recruiting advantage for their sports programs over institutions that lack such resources. “If you have more resources, you’re able to offer more education and training to athletes on building a social media presence, on building a brand, things like how do you put yourself out there on the marketplace…we’re seeing the larger schools that have those resources more readily pulling those resources together quickly.”
REGION — California's electoral maps for the next 10 years are in. The independent redistricting committees for the state and county approved their final maps with significant changes across the state, including North County. Since the process to gather the 2020 census numbers was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, each commission had just months to complete the new maps. For example, County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer’s district saw some significant changes, gaining more southern coastal cities and losing inland territory, such as Escondido. “While I am saddened that District 3 is losing some incredible communities, I will continue to fight for our shared values everywhere in the county,” Lawson-Remer said. “As a resident of Encinitas, I know that this new district shares many of the same priorities. Sea level rise, coastal erosion, stormwater pollution, rising housing costs and traffic are all important to this district and I will continue to fight for aggressive action from our county government as the representative for District 3.” The county commission, which comprised of six democrats, four republicans and
four no-party preference representatives, had some of the biggest changes for North County. In North County, Carlsbad was moved to a coastal district for the legislature and county, joining the cities of Encinitas, Del Mar, Solana Beach, La Jolla and other coastal areas in both maps. Carlsbad’s boundaries for the county and State Assembly run south to Imperial Beach, while its State Senate seat includes Pacific Beach, although it remains
grouped with parts of Orange County as part of the 49th Congressional district. Carlsbad and Escondido flipped districts for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors as Carlsbad moves into District 3, while Escondido joins D5. Currently, supervisors Lawson-Remer and Jim Desmond represent D3 and D5, respectively. Rancho Santa Fe also moves to D3, while much of the eastern inland portion of the district has been reallocated to the coastline. D3’s new borders ex-
tend east of Solana Beach and Del Mar to Interstate 15 but now include La Jolla, Pacific Beach and Coronado. The boundary stops at Imperial Beach, which is in D1, represented by Supervisor Nora Vargas. D5 now covers more of East County to the south, while D2, represented by Joel Anderson, extends farther west including south of Escondido and northeast San Diego south of Poway.

DAG’s director of diversity and equity, both said it was not possible to project any expected cost increases. “The plan is $163 billion, and you don’t know what your labor costs are?” asked Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall. “These typically cost between 13.5% to 25% for a PLA. That’s a minimum $5 billion to $10 billion increase.” In addition to cost increases, opponents panned the agreement as one steeped in unequal opportunities for non-union labor, forcing non-union workers to pay into union benefits and retirement while not vesting in those benefits and allowing only three workers per non-union business to work. However, proponents argue the agreement is inclusive, will promote a number of work programs for targeted demographics, a skilled workforce and local hires. One of the board's more controversial moves came earlier this year when it approved allowing the National Black Contractors Association to be part of the negotiations after the organization called out the board for its unequal treatment of non-union shops by leaving them out of those discussions. But approximately two months later, the board majority later reversed course and voted to remove the National Black Contractors Association from negotiations with SANDAG. Abdur-Rahim Hameed, president of the National Black Contractors Associa-

tion, called out the board for discrimination, along with long-held practices from state and federal union leadership of forcing non-union workers to pay for work without receiving benefits. Alexis Hameed, director of outreach for the National Black Contractors Association, questioned whether PLAs are the new Jim Crow and hammered the board by saying the politicians exploit the association's members by using their images during campaigns. Eric Christen, executive director of the Coalition for Fair Employment in Construction, said equity stops having meaning when big labor unions use this to fund campaigns. Christen said three workers must pay $20 per hour to the unions along with union dues they will never vest. “When a system doesn’t work, you start over,” Alexis Hameed said. “To the mem-
bers who vote for the CBA (community benefits agreement), this will follow you forever.” However, San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria, Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear and County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer said the project labor agreement is inclusive and will allow SANDAG to hire vulnerable and underrepresented workers and meet diversity and equity goals. Gloria said there is a misunderstanding of project labor agreements and noted they provide a stable workforce and avoid cost overruns. Lawson-Remer said the agreement will raise all boats and is a public benefit. “There is really valuable precedent in our region with school bonds and in L.A,” Lawson-Remer said. “There is quite a bit of data with projects that are built on time and within budget.” Del Mar Mayor Terry Gaasterland did not support
the project labor agreement and voted to delay the measure as there is not enough data in identifying targeted workers, along with the validity of PLAs. She said without those numbers and metrics, the agreement is incomplete. Oceanside Councilman Christopher Rodriguez called the approval of the labor agreement a scheme by the unions to siphon public money into their coffers and then fund union-backed Democrats for office so they can approve the proposed half-cent tax proposal. As for local hiring, much of the workforce will not be local despite claims stating the opposite. Since SANDAG receives federal funding, this prevents the metropolitan planning agency from limiting its workforce to locals only. According to Richardson, the Mid-Coast Trolley, for example, only employed 50% to 55% local workers.

The legend of Jock-o Sutherland
ock Sutherland grew up on the North Shore of Oahu back when the population there was less than that of Piggott, Arkansas. He was raised by a fearless mom who made legendary ocean swims and taught her son to be comfortable, even in the most uncomfortable situations. Between the reigns of Butch Van Artsdalen and Gerry Lopez, Sutherland was the undisputed king of the Pipeline, stuffing himself deeper into those gaping tubes than anyone before him, switching stance like he was standing on a sidewalk, and incorporating what were then new moves like the sideslip, where the fin was broken loose from the wave face, and the board slid down the wave before reconnecting again. (The sideslip was apparently invented by David Nuuhiwa and Herbie Fletcher in the late ’60s.) 1969 is the year against which all other North Shore winters are measured against. I was on Maui and watched that year as Ho-
water spot chris ahrens nolua Bay maxed out to a crowd of the best surfers in the world, including Sutherland, who had flown over for the swell and to star in John Severson’s classic movie, “Pacific Vibrations.” As houses were being thrown across the Kam Highway and people were being evacuated to higher ground, Jock was seen as a dot against the shifting Himalayan horizon as Waimea Bay upended city blocks of saltwater. According to the story, famed board builder Dick Brewer and other North Shore locals formed a human chain on the beach to pull Jock from the violent shore break moments before the bay and the sky went dark. I met Jock at Doheny Beach in the mid ’60s,
just after he took second place behind Nat Young in the 1966 world contest at San Diego’s Ocean Beach. School was in whenever he showed up to display moves we had never even considered. It was around that time I heard about him surfing Trestles. According to a story corroborated by several credible eyewitnesses, Jock had broken the fin from his 9-foot 10-inch Harbor Trestles Special when he took off on a good-sized wave and nearly completed what would have been the first 360-degree turn. I wasn’t there, but I believe it having seen him complete moves that formerly seemed impossible. Always one to go his own direction, Jock bucked the counterculture by joining the Army at the height of the Vietnam War. To my knowledge he never did fight in the war, but if he had, there is little doubt he would have distinguished himself for bravery, even though he was too gentle for me to ever imagine him shooting anyone.
Jock Sutherland does not fit into anyone’s conception of what a surfer was at the time. He was among the best surfers in the world, riding misto reefs alone, beyond the crowds and the cameras. And, thanks to his English teacher mom, he was well-read and highly articulate. For several years running, I encountered Jock Sutherland as he distinguished himself as a surfer at the Moore’s UCSD Luau and Longboard Invitational. Of course, he ripped whatever waves showed up, and, on the beach, he was

friendly with anyone who wanted to talk or take a selfie. In short, he was the same old Jock Sutherland who made a name for himself one wave and one firm
handshake at a time. Here’s wishing you a glassy Christmas and an offshore New Year. (This greeting was lifted from a ’70s Surfer Magazine subscription card.)

3-week-old baby giraffe born at zoo named Mawe By City News Service
REGION — The San Diego Zoo on Dec. 17 named a newborn giraffe calf Mawe, a name that means stone in Swahili. Mawe — pronounced ``maw-way'' — was born to first-time mom Saba three
weeks ago. At birth, she weighed a little under 150 pounds and stood around 5 feet, 10 inches tall. According to the zoo, the calf has been introduced to the other members of the herd, and both the mother and daughter are
doing well. There are fewer than 100,000 giraffes estimated left in their native habitats across the world — a decrease of more than 40% over the last 20 years, according to a statement from the zoo.

Worden new mayor of Del Mar
small talk jean gillette
By Tigist Layne
DEL MAR — The Del Mar City Council last week voted for Dwight Worden to serve as the mayor of Del Mar for the next year. The council also voted for Tracy Martinez to serve as the new deputy mayor. The city’s five council members rotate the positions of mayor and deputy mayor every year in December. Both Worden and Martinez will serve in these positions until December 2022. “In choosing the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, it is the tradition of the City Council to place the two highest vote-getters in any one election into a queue to rotate into the position of Mayor WORDEN and Deputy Mayor,” said the city staff report. Worden, who served as city attorney from 197783, was appointed to the council in 2014. He previously served as mayor from 2017-18. Martinez is a health care executive and registered nurse who was elected in 2020 for her first term on the council. At the meeting on Dec. 13, the council expressed their appreciation for outgoing mayor Terry Gaasterland who just completed her first one-year term as mayor since joining the council in 2018. Worden read the resolution, crafted by Gaasterland’s fellow councilmembers, which highlighted Gaasterland’s accomplishments and notable initiatives during her term, including that she was the first mayor in the city’s TURN TO MAYOR ON B9

I know there are others out there who’ve only made it through two-thirds of your list and are standing poised and frustrated, trying to find that one-of-akind gift for that ever-present person who just seems to have everything. If you live in North County, you are in luck. This may be the year to forgo the sequined sweater and bad ties that only address the outer self. In this northern portion of our fair county, we tend to eschew the gathering of tawdry possessions. Here we focus on feeding the inner self, and the inner self is in for a heck of a holiday. Consider these few suggestions that can be had right in our neighborhood and, I suspect, absolutely nowhere else in the U.S. east of Mission Valley. Some of these will be hard to wrap, but I can pretty much guarantee that you won’t find a duplicate under the tree. After the last couple of years we’ve had, and masks going back on, we probably are feeling frazzled, burned out, befuddled or just cranky. No Chia Pet or box of chocolates is going to set

Rare SoCal butterfly named threatened species By City News Service
REGION — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Dec. 20 declared one of Southern California’s rarest butterflies — the Hermes copper butterfly — as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. The agency also designated 35,000 acres in San Diego County as protected critical habitat. “The Hermes copper butterfly is one of several threatened or endangered butterflies in our region,” said Paul Souza, regional director for the agency’s California-Great Basin Region. “We are also issuing a special rule that will provide flexibility for our partners engaged in important wildfire prevention and species research activities while providing protection for this rare butterfly.” The rule tailors protection for the species while allowing activities that do not harm recovery, including habitat restoration,

4S RANCH — Mike Stein and his son, Matt, 15, are continuing their Share a Warm Hug blanket drive for donations. The Steins live in Torrey Hills and dad Michael has offices in Del Mar. This year’s drive just passed the $10,000 mark in donations and they have purchased another 550 blankets which they plan to distribute to the youth in the community the week of Dec. 17. Donations can be made through Jan. 15. The goal is to help those in need during the pandemic. “My son, Matt, and I are also raising money to
buy high quality blankets for the underprivileged youth of San Diego,” Stein said. “Whether homeless, living out of a car or moving from couch to couch, there are so many youth and teens here in our county that we want to help stay warm. Last year, we were beyond grateful to have raised $16,500 which allowed us to buy and deliver more than 1,700 blankets.” The pair began fundraising this year at the end of November and 100% of all donations are tax deductible.

would surely be pushed into extinction by Southern California’s rampant development, wildfires driven by climate change and invasive plants,” said Ileene Anderson, a senior scientist at the center. “I’m relieved to finally see this beautiful little butterfly and its habitat protected.”
The small, bright yellow-orange, spotted Hermes copper is found only in San Diego County and northwestern Baja California, Mexico, where it inhabits coastal sage scrub and chaparral habitats. Its survival depends on dwindling patches of its host plant, the spiny redberry. The center said that increasingly frequent and severe wildfires have also ravaged the butterfly's primary source of nectar, the California buckwheat. The butterfly declined from at least 57 historical populations to only 26 populations in a survey this year, and the USFW warned that a single large wildfire could wipe out all remaining populations of the butterflies. The protected habitat is in three areas: — Lopez Canyon, which includes acreage within Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve — Miramar/Santee — Southern San Diego

this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 094709-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www. clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 094709-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of
the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Odd Files THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT Fritz Turner, 23, returned to his hometown of Newport, Washington, to find the city's Christmas tree "embarrassing." The scant trimming comprised a series of vertical rope lights dangling from the top of the tree down the sides, The News Tribune reported. "This is not gonna do," he said. So he set up a GoFundMe page on Dec. 2, hoping to raise $5,000 for better lights and more decorations. "We can do better. Even Charlie Brown's Christmas tree looked better than this sad spruce," he wrote. The page raised more than $2,700 for the lights, and the local utility company hung them on the tree. And middle- and high school students donated handmade ornaments for it. For the first time in many years, the chamber of commerce organized a tree-lighting ceremony on Dec. 11. Turner said he's been "inspired" by the support. "Together, we're really powerful."

She obtained a Social Security card and driver's license, then racked up more than $25,000 in debt with student loans and other expenses. She also worked at Southwest Baptist University and rented a room from Wendy and Avery Parker. "Everybody believed it," said Mountain View Police Chief Jamie Perkins. "She even had boyfriends that believed that she was that age: 22 years old." Oglesby may face up to five years in prison and will have to pay restitution to her daughter and SBU.

Christmas decorations may fill the hearts of children with holiday cheer, but one young ursid saw a sparring partner and went on the attack in Monrovia, California, on Dec. 8. Donna Hargett captured video of a bear cub wrestling with her neighbor's inflatable reindeer as the mama bear looked on, United Press International reported. "I looked up and there it was, jumping on the reindeer," Hargett said. "We see these two around all the time. They're trouble," she said. In fact, Hargett said they once broke into her home and left paw prints on the bed. No word on Rudolph's condition. [UPI, 12/10/2021]
LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM Lauras Matiusovas, 30, was suddenly (and mistakenly) released from the Pentonville Prison in North London on Nov. 26 after serving only 48 hours of a four-year sentence. After he called the probation officer, who told him that everything was in order, Matiusovas did what any grateful con would do: He embarked on a 10-day boozing binge with his friends. "It's mad," one buddy said, according to the Daily Star. "He could have jumped on a flight and left the U.K. Instead, he chilled with us and had a great time." But it all came to an end on Dec. 6, when he was hauled THE WAY THE back to his cell.

ed up raising $5,000 to send two veterans on the flight, which is tentatively scheduled for April 2022. Other students have also risen to the challenge after being inspired by the program and the veterans in their communities. Seventh grader Jake Hauenstein and his thirdgrade sister Ivy also decided to get involved in honor of Giving Tuesday last month. Jake and Ivy sat in front of the Rancho Santa Fe Post Office to find veterans, or friends and family of veterans, to apply for the Honor Flight San Diego program, and those
who felt inclined to, could also donate to the cause. George Sousa, a 91-yearold Korean War veteran accompanied them. In the end, they were able to raise enough funds to send one veteran on the next Honor Flight. “You don't know what's going to inspire somebody or what inspires a student to continue to say yes to something, you just never know, and so to have both of these groups of kids wanting to do something and then on top of that, I also have a few other students that are wanting to get involved, it’s inspiring,” Halboth said.

Unemployment rate drops By City News Service
REGION — San Diego County’s unemployment rate decreased to 4.6% in November, down from a revised 5.3% in October and below the year-ago estimate of 6.8%, according to figures released Dec. 17 by the state Employment Development Department. This compares with an unadjusted unemployment rate of 5.4% for California, which decreased from
6.1% in October, and 3.9% for the nation, down from October’s 4.3%, during the same period. Trade, transportation and utilities led all industries with 7,300 jobs gained. Employment in educational and health services increased by 3,700. Health care and social assistance were responsible for 76% of the growth, or 2,800 jobs.
VISTA — A regional economic development group recently honored Vista’s Economic Development Director Kevin Ham, who is retiring at the end of the month, with an award in his namesake. Erik Bruvold, CEO of San Diego North Economic Development Council, announced the inaugural “Kevin Ham Impact Award” during the organization’s third annual awards luncheon on Thursday at the Seabird Resort in Oceanside. The yearly honor will be awarded to “an individual, public or private sector who catalyzes positive change in North County by bringing people together to do ‘big things.’” “This award is designed to draw attention to and celebrate people in the economic development sphere in North County who are getting things done,” Bruvold said. “We wanted to have this as an opportunity to call attention to those successes, to celebrate them and make sure that people know about them.” Ham, who leaves his post at the city after 21 years, said that he was “honored and humbled” by the award. “I think that at the end of our careers we all hope that we’ve had an impact on those that we work with, so to have an award be named for oneself that is the impact award is quite humbling,” Ham said. In addition to spotlighting several North County businesses and programs, including Alila Marea Resort in Encinitas and the Escondido Grand Avenue Project, the group also honored health care providers TriCity Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, Palomar Health and Scripps Health for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

the award to Ham at Thursday’s event, said that no one was more deserving of the honor than Ham, whom he called North County’s “dean of economic development.” Bruvold credited Ham with helping advance the growth of the Vista Business Park and revitalizing the city’s downtown area, among other accomplishments. “(Ham) was instrumental in a whole variety of ways in advancing the Vista Business Park and that’s been a key employment area in all of North County, with around 8 million square feet of industrial space,” Bruvold said. “Kevin really understood the importance of the business park and leaned into seeing it succeed.” Vista City Manager Patrick Johnson echoed Bruvold’s sentiments, noting the progress of the Vista Business Park was largely due to Ham’s hands-on approach in building close relationships between the city and small business owners that make up the sector. “If you look at the vacancy rate in the Business Park, it’s in the 4th percentile rate, with commercial vacancies under 15%, and overall health of Vista
businesses has been really strong even coming out of the pandemic,” Johnson said. “More than anything it’s just the relationship he has with the business community, he really partners with them and just doesn’t settle with businesses coming to Vista but he continues that partnership…his networking has just been huge and that’s allowed him to make a big mark in the business community.” Both Johnson and Bruvold also praised the retiring development director for his work in transforming the city’s downtown area. “Downtown was a pretty challenged neighborhood at one time…what Kevin was able to do was keep investment interests alive and to help business owners continue to see the value in upgrading their properties and to invest in their properties,” Bruvold said. “Now what you have in downtown Vista is a critical mass that is self-sustaining and has a life of its own, and that’s a testament to him being able to pivot and navigate those changes in a positive way.” In addition to the growth of both the downtown corridor and the business park, Ham said that

he’s proud that his office was able to facilitate the creation of Innovate78, an economic partnership between the cities of Vista, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Escondido and San Marcos. The initiative aims to reduce competition over attracting new businesses between individual cities and has played a pivotal role in spurring business creation and incubation in the entire region, Ham said. “Kevin exemplifies entrepreneurship,” Bruvold said. “One of his great skillsets is his ability to think outside the box and to make sure that he doesn’t get too bogged down in process and bureaucracy, and that’s allowed him to really thrive and succeed in what he does.” But just as important as his entrepreneurial character, Bruvold said it was Ham’s ability to bring about collaboration and partnership that had an impact on the region and made him deserving of Thursday’s award. “We wanted to establish this award to recognize somebody whose value was in bringing people together, who saw collaboration as key…it’s really been that notion of collaboration and cooperation that’s had an impact on North County,” Bruvold said. Prior to his appointment as the city’s development director in 2001, Ham worked in both the public and private sectors at various levels. After working for the State of California for several years, he co-founded an electronic equipment maintenance business that still operates in Kearny Mesa. While retirement for him is “bittersweet,” Ham said that he looks forward to continuing to do some consulting work in the public sector, volunteering locally, traveling Europe and becoming fluent in Spanish. Noting his deep professional friendships in Vista and beyond, Ham said that he hopes that he leaves a legacy of unity, positivity and a people-oriented approach to economic development.

’Tis the season for new beer friends — and omicron?
was going to write a heartwarming holiday column about sharing a beer with a stranger in the desert. “Sharing this beer with others actually brings me joy,” I wrote in my notes.

Another explains how this burgeoning friendship started when I heard the crack of a can indicating our campsite neighbors were enjoying a beer of their own which led to a hearty,

We were just looking for a chance to take a hike and maybe read a book near a campfire. They were in their 20s, and we are…not. We made a full camp meal on our stove with a spot of whiskey and a beer. They ate what appeared to be ramen out of a pot. Then we shared a beer and none of those differences mattered. We learned about them. They learned about us. We laughed. We all shivered when the temps dropped below 40 but they shared some hardwood with us for the fire.

about this week was how beer can create friendships where none had existed before. Then I came back into civilization and I thought, “Ugh. Not again.” Coronavirus is rearing its ugly head again. Omicron is quickly becoming a dominant force. Misinformation is spreading. The mask mandates are back in effect but it was noticeable that almost no one besides the staff was wearing one at the local coffee shops and breweries I stopped into this week. I hope that was an aberration and not the rule because in a sign that I had entered the “upside down” (“Stranger Things” reference), almost everyone at Walmart this morning was wearing one. Back in civilization, I kept my head down while picking up holiday gifts of beer and whiskey and coffee. Back in civilization, I returned to cross the street when I saw someone else walking my way. Back in civilization, there is anger about politics, distress about climate change, fighting over vaccine mandates, and on, and on. It’s enough to make me want to drink my beers
alone. I’m going to write something that feels familiar. It feels a little repetitive, but that doesn’t make it any less relevant. The mask mandates are back, back again (Backstreet Boys reference) and the new-old coronavirus is still spreading. Please, please, be cool to your servers, bartenders, baristas, and hospitality workers. They (along with our medical staff and essential workers) have been carrying the weight of coronavirus more than the rest of us. They have to be there. It is their job. The least we can do is wear a mask for the few minutes it takes to get a pint, crowler or latte. I’m going to remind you that if you’re giving gifts, look first to the local brewery, bar, cafe, or restaurant that makes your community feel at home and share what they do with those you love. Swap out the major brand holiday gift packs — you know, the ones that come with a pair of shot glasses that will never get used and too much packaging — for something local. Individually wrap cans from a variety of North County breweries and play “mystery” beer with the family.
Fill those gift boxes with Hoppy Beer gear or freshly-roasted coffee beans from your favorite local coffee roaster. Avoid a day in the kitchen and order your holiday meal from the neighborhood spot. Ship a bottle from one of San Diego’s craft distilleries to that favorite friend from college. I’m going to remind you that we are all going through something. I may not feel like we’re all on the same team all the time, but we are muddling through. It isn’t the heartwarming message I was hoping to leave you with but feels a little more appropriate to the mixed bag that has been 2021. Finally, when the opportunity arises to share a beer with a stranger in a way that feels covid-safe, I say jump at it. It will probably come with a story or a laugh and you may just walk away with a new beer friend. Stream the newest episodes of the Roast!

Spiritual Sobriety: Are you sober curious this holiday season?
on fire susan sullivan
ith the holidays bearing down, parties and gatherings that include alcohol abound. Have you ever been sober curious? What actually happens when you don’t drink? Can you get closer to God being sober? Is being alcohol- and drug-free a path to higher consciousness? When someone has a spiritual awakening, are they usually sober first to get to that place, or do you get sober once you have a spiritual awakening? So many questions ... let’s start with this one. What’s the longest you have gone without a drink? Before I got sober, nine years ago now, I remember going to the doctor for a checkup and them asking how many drinks I had in a week. The maximum on the intake sheet was six per week, and I had to lie because I would sometimes have that many in one day ... at least. And I'm pretty sure I wasn’t thinking about God. Unless, of course, there were blue and red lights flashing behind me after I had gotten behind the wheel after a few cocktails. Then it was, “God, get me out of this, and I swear I'll never drink again.” Until I picked up the next day, I mean, it's 5 o’clock somewhere, right? And now, with all the gastropubs, whisky and tequila bars, and mixology making a comeback in millennials’ living rooms, drinking is encouraged, promoted and available everywhere. It’s culturally and socially acceptable, an expected rite of passage. But when one turns into three and three turns into a blackout, it might be a good time to take a look at yourself and what you might be

trying to numb out with the use of alcohol. These days, those on a spiritual quest for enlightenment rarely, if ever, imbibe in alcohol. It blocks out the sunlight of the Spirit. If you are trying to recover from a hangover, you probably aren’t meditating. For example, if you got a DUI, you are probably too busy dealing with overconsumption's legal and financial ramifications to think about God. Invariably, you may end up being ordered by a judge to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting as part of your restitution for being drunk in public. In this case, God is an acronym for a Group of Drunks. Most people don’t want to admit they have a chronic or habitual drinking problem. Societal norms that outweigh a person’s reasoning process and the intense peer pressure surrounding our culture and society raise the probability of developing a drinking problem even if nothing bad ever happened to you, like a DUI, divorce, or accident. So what is an alcoholic going to look like in 2022? The hobo with a 40-ounce beer in a brown paper bag sleeping on the park bench? Not so much anymore. Alcoholics are men and women who have lost the power to control and manage their drinking. This could end up with just a DUI and a new attitude toward life, or it could
run for decades until one’s bottom comes up to meet them in a myriad of pitiful, incomprehensible and demoralizing ways. The number of high-functioning, high-profile alcoholics seems staggering in our society. And it seems to only become visible to the problem drinker after some tragedy or loss befalls them. When a person finally admits they have a problem with alcohol, it may or may not be too late. We are super fortunate in San Diego to have hundreds of solutions if you are interested in changing your relationship with alcohol. Round-the-clock AA meetings, in-person throughout North County or via Zoom, are one possible solution (www.aa.org). SAMHSA’s National Helpline (www.samhsa.gov) is a free, confidential, 24/7, 365-day-a-year treatment referral and information service for individuals and families facing mental and substance use disorders. Spiritual counseling and soul realignment treatments and centers that promote healing on a spiritual level are available throughout San Diego County. A stint in rehab can set your thinking straight and give you a chance to detox from the poisons that alcohol inflict on your body and vital organs and experience what happens when you put down the drink for a few days in a row.

ism as a progressive disease can be fast-tracked at a residential treatment center like Villa Kali Ma (www.villakalima.com). “We focus on the underlying conditions and root causes that exacerbate the condition,” says Kay White, founder and executive director. White specializes in treating the mental health aspects of addiction. Participants are guided through the 30-day stay with six therapists and a team of holistic healers on staff. A plan is also custom designed and created for after-care programs that address impulse control and learning new habits has been highly successful. “The Yogic path gave me a spiritual experience. Being sober, I can now feel the presence of the Divine working through me,” says White.
Villa Kali Ma uses spiritual principles to assist in the recovery process. The condition never really goes away, but cultivating new healthy habits can arrest alcoholism. And it’s better to have the disease arrested than you breaking out in handcuffs every time you pick up a drink. In the book, “This Naked Mind,” by Annie Grace, the author offers new and positive solutions by presenting alcohol use’s psychological and neurological components based on the latest science. If you are curious whether drinking has become too big a part of your life and worry that it may be affecting your health and relationships, give so-
briety a chance by looking at yourself as sober curious. Tapering off before you quit entirely keeps it going one day at a time. If you or someone you know is struggling with alcohol, 211 San Diego is the region’s trusted source for information and connections, with a database of more than 6,000 services and resources updated on a real-time basis. People are going through a lot these days, but drinking to excess never fixes those problems, and it can add another layer of other issues if you are not mindful. Making New Year’s resolutions is a perfect time to set some new goals and spiritual aspirations that can be enhanced by embracing sobriety.

Tending to our gardens of gratefulness for the holidays of these meanings. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what an individual receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. “In the process, people usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, being grateful also helps people connect to something larger than themselves as individuals — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.”

often think about my paternal grandmother at Christmas. Edna VanDenBerg was one of the strongest women I have ever known, in spite of becoming a widow at 55 years old, and living in a tiny bungalow in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the 1950s. She became a cook at a local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) club and amazed us all as she prepared dinners for 50 or more Milwaukee veterans every weekend. Her recipes live on in my memory, and the care and creativity she expressed through her Christmas presents were not truly appreciated by me until recently. Grandma VanDen-

In a previous column (August 2020), I discussed the art of seed saving. If you have been diligent in saving your seeds this year, package them in small brown paper bags, with instructions for planting. Many of the gardeners in my Carlsbad Senior Center Garden class have been collecting seeds all summer, and our most exciting find was Multi-Color Zinnias from Croatia! Now a package of those seeds would make your relatives shout hurray! If you have been successful forcing bulbs over the past few months the Paperwhite Narcissus bulbs, now in bloom, make wonderful hostess gifts, as do Amaryllis which you can find at local garden centers.
