OCEANSIDE — Manu McKinley’s life changed in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, but not because of the virus. Rather, it was a vehicle-pedestrian accident that almost took her foot. A video of the incident shows at approximately 9:35 a.m. on May 28, 2020, McKinley entered the crosswalk at the corner of Mission Avenue and North Cleveland Street when she was struck by a white Chevrolet work van making a right turn eastbound onto Mission Avenue. According to the Oceanside Police Department’s collision report, McKinley said she had waited at the crosswalk at the southeast curb of North

News. But the driver of the vehicle, Pishgram Daghestany, a Rancho Santa Fe resident working for HVAC company BH Mechanical, also known as BB Electrical, claimed that McKinley
had run into the intersection and stuck her foot out to be run over as he was making a right turn. According to the report, Daghestany said he knew he had run over McKinley’s foot after feeling the van “slightly raise” and pulled over to the side of the road. Ted Dillon, a pedestrian witness, was waiting at the northeast corner of North Cleveland to cross. When the light turned green for southbound traffic, he said he entered the crosswalk when he witnessed Daghestany hit McKinley with the van. The collision report states the cause of the accident was Daghestany’s violation of McKinley’s rightof-way in the crosswalk. Daghestany was not under the influence, according to the report. McKinley sustained abrasions to her right foot and right elbow and was taken to Scripps Encinitas
for treatment. According to her attorney Mike Emrani, of Los Angeles-based firm Emrani Lawyers, McKinley’s foot was wrapped up and she was sent on her way. “Given she is homeless, they probably wanted to get rid of her,” Emrani said. Although the police report described her injuries as minor, Emrani said the injury was far more egregious. In the weeks following the accident, the injury allegedly grew worse. McKinley’s foot became severely infected, and two weeks later someone found her in a Carlsbad park suffering from gangrene with a host of maggots plaguing her foot. McKinley was taken back to Scripps where doctors wanted to amputate her foot. After begging them to keep her feet attached, medical personnel opted to TURN TO INJURY ON A8

SOMETHING’S ALWAYS BREWING IN THE VILLAGE! You never know what hidden treasure you will find in downtown Carlsbad. Tucked behind Las Olas Mexican Restaurant on Carlsbad Blvd., in what once was a hair salon for decades, now sits the coolest little coffee house. Run by two friendly guys with a passion for roasting coffee and brewing a perfect cup – Ray Orate and John Herrmann – INTERIM COFFEE just might become one of your very favorite go-to spots. Ray’s drink of choice on their menu is a toss-up between a Spanish Cortado and the Honey Lavender Latte while John prefers a freshly poured espresso made from their Rocksteady Blend. INTERIM COFFEE offers everything from freshly brewed drip coffee to mochas to café au lait, as well as traditional steamers featuring their own homemade caramel and vanilla syrups. They even make their own lavender syrup! Beyond their handcrafted drinks, which can be enjoyed on their outdoor patio, Ray and John showcase their true calling as coffee roasters at INTERIM COFFEE. Their Live Wire (Peru/Colombia) blend offers a balanced acidity and full-bodied chocolate flavors with undertones of caramel and a lingering sweet finish. The Classic is an ode to that morning brew you never forget, combining caramelized roast flavors on top of the sweet and chocolaty character of their coffees in this dark roast. They also offer single origin coffees; a Swiss water process decaffeinated coffee from Peru; and a half-caff blend that offers up a supremely smooth and flavorful cup that is aptly named Pressure Drop. Ray and John share years of experience roasting coffee. But five months ago, when they opened INTERIM COFFEE, it was to fulfill a dream of owning their own small business. Thankfully, they chose Carlsbad Village for that dream. Interested in wholesale or private label coffee? The guys behind INTERIM COFFEE can make that happen. And their online ordering system is very easy to use, offering not only whole beans for sale, but also ground coffee in both 12 ounce and five pound bags specifically for drip/pour over, French press, or espresso grind. 2943 Carlsbad Blvd. (760) 697-0989 www.interimcoffee.com

ENCINITAS — Residents are expressing frustration and bewilderment after two houses designated for sale to very low-income households in Encinitas were instead sold to non-qualified investors with written approval from the city. In October 2020, a home in Cardiff sold for $138,000, and this past summer, a home near Desert Rose Way in the community of Loden at Olivenhain sold for around $112,000. Both homes were sold to investors to convert them to rental units rather than low-income households for purchase. As part of the city’s density bonus and affordable housing programs, homes meant for very
low-income households are apparently also allowed to be sold at rock bottom prices to investors agreeing to keep the units as low-income rental housing for 55 years and with written approval from the city. During that time the city must keep records of the property’s tenants to ensure the home is being rented to qualified households. Scan QR code for full story
DEL MAR — A Del Mar resident and Scripps Research professor has recently been awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for groundbreaking research surrounding how humans sense temperature and touch. A professor in the Dorris Neuroscience Center at Scripps Research in La Jolla, Dr. Ardem Patapoutian’s scientific breakthroughs were largely made at the Scripps Research lab. He shares the prize with Dr. David Julius of UC San Francisco. The Nobel Prize committee highlighted Patapoutian’s discoveries of receptors for temperature and touch, research that
solved a long-standing mystery of how the body senses touch and other mechanical stimuli. “The breakthrough by Patapoutian led to a series of papers from his and other groups, demonstrating that the Piezo2 ion channel is essential for the sense of touch,” the Nobel committee wrote.

SAN MARCOS — Faculty representatives at California State University at San Marcos (CSUSM) voted Wednesday to begin the process of cutting school ties with the controversial late State Senator William A. Craven, including renaming buildings and streets, and removing his bust monument from campus. The university’s Academic Senate voted 56-2-2 in favor of removing any signs of Craven, known for his reportedly anti-immigrant and white supremacist ideologies, from the school grounds. It is unclear which senators supported or opposed the motion as the voting system is anonymous.
The resolution, which was proposed by University without Borders collectively, called for the renaming of Craven Hall, Craven Circle and Craven Road and the removal of the bust of William Craven from the campus. “To continue its commitment to racial inclusion, and to advance its vital work to promote diversity, racial and social justice in Scan QR code for full story

Navy veteran finds passion, healing in art therapy
Encinitas housing applicants Big ‘O’ landmark coming file federal lawsuit against city soon to downtown Oceanside
By Jordan Ingram
by Jordan Ingram
VISTA — A 15-year Navy veteran suffering from daily migraine headaches, lower-back pain and depression never imagined creating bronze and ceramic sculptures of pre-colonial African kings could be an effective form of therapy and pain management. But after his early medical retirement from the military, Yeoman 2nd Class Reginald Green started to discover healing properties in art creation, exploring the basics of sculpting, painting and ceramics during his spare time. “What do I really love? Well, I love art,” Green told The Coast News. “Why don’t I start trying to create my own instead of buying other people’s art?” Green experienced a
temporary repose from his reoccurring symptoms — likely side effects from an anthrax vaccine and years of active duty — by volunteering with various art projects, including recreational therapy services at the VA Medical Center in La Jolla. Today, Green, 42, is an art instructor at Veterans Art Project’s studios in Vista and Fallbrook. Scan QR code for full story
ENCINITAS — Four Encinitas residents who applied for very-low-income homes have filed a federal lawsuit this morning against the City of Encinitas, developer Woodbridge Pacific Group and several “shell” companies alleging a coordinated effort to abuse the city’s affordable home program. The complaint alleges the city approved the sales of two affordable homes — 1317 Portola Road and 1412 Mackinnon Avenue — to pre-determined, non-qualified investors instead of qualified, verylow-income applicants in violation of federal and state anti-discrimination fair housing laws. The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, Sept. 30, in the U.S. Dis-
trict Court for the Southern District of California, comes just days after it was first reported by The Coast News that the city approved the sale of an affordable home at 1317 Portola Road in the Loden at Olivenhain community to a non-qualified investor over approximately 80 very-low-income applicants.

CONCEPTUAL PLANS for the big “O” landmark sign that is set to be installed at the intersection of Pier View Way and Tremont Street. Artist rendering
By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — Earlier this year, a contest was launched between architects to create a landmark sign to be installed downtown to attract residents and visitors while also making the area more pedestrian-friendly. After a winner was determined in the spring, Mainstreet Oceanside, city staff and architects have been working on fulfilling the project. Partners Ann Worth and Sarah Hirschman at Object Projects, a San Diego-based architecture firm, submitted the winning design back in January along with many other potential designs. They were chosen as one of five finalists and then finally selected as the winners in
late spring. Their design features a large “O” formed by several O-shaped discs to be suspended above the intersection of Pier View Way and Tremont Street. The discs will be made of stainless steel while its four pillars, which will be placed at each of the four corners of the intersection, will be made of galvanized steel. Scan QR code for full story

Back to Basics around the county jim desmond I think we can all agree, I’m glad 2021 is in the rearview mirror. As we head into the new year, I don’t want to dwell on the past, I want to focus on the future, by getting back to basics. While there’s been a lot of media attention surrounding three new members joining the Board of Supervisors, my focus doesn’t change. When I ran for election in 2018, my top three priorities were, fiscal responsibility, public safety and making sure we
had adequate behavioral health services, those issues haven’t changed! In 2020 and 2021, the County of San Diego dipped into its reserve for the first time in a very long time. I’m glad we had these reserves for the COVID-19 crisis, but it’s important that we build it back up. We don’t know when the next pandemic, wildfire or catastrophe is around the corner. We must be prepared! San Diego County is one of the safest counties in the country. That is because of the great work from our Sheriff and Police Departments. We need to continue to provide adequate funding and resources in order to maintain safety throughout our region. When I came into of-
fice two years ago, North County was facing a behavioral health crisis with the suspension of Tri-City Hospital’s behavioral health unit and losses of other facilities and resources. Law enforcement was having to take people in crisis from North County all of the way to our facility at Rosecrans in San Diego. I’m pleased to announce, we are making significant progress! Soon, North County will have the resources to tackle homelessness in our region. I think it’s vital as we say goodbye to a hectic 2021, we focus set our sight on 2022 and get back to basics! Supervisor Jim Desmond represents the 5th District, including SanMarcos and Vista.
2021 District office update By Marie Waldron
Helping people navigate the state’s massive bureaucracy is an important function of my District Office (DO). During 2021, we were able to help over 2,400 constituents resolve issues involving state and other governmental agencies. This included over 2,000 unemployment claims, resulting from the Employment Development Department’s inability to cope with the pandemic-related shutdown that struck in March, 2020. Unfortunately, EDD is still reeling, causing delays and problems for thousands of Californians, but our office is here to help! This number doesn’t include hundreds of cases that have re-opened again and again, due to ongoing glitches in the government agency. Our office has also assisted EDD in identifying
and stopping many fraudulent claims, including phony claims from people living in other states. In addition to helping constituents get their EDD benefits, last year we handled hundreds of other cases involving the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Franchise Tax Board, licensing delays for nurses, long delays for firearm background checks, and many more. Since government is so complex, we frequently get inquiries about non-state issues. Over the past year we’ve received inquiries about the border, Afghan immigration, federal spending policies, people stuck overseas with expired passports, county land use policies, city zoning and many other topics! Always feel free to contact us when you don’t know where to turn -- we’ll point you in the right direction.
Another important DO responsibility involves updating me regarding the opinions of constituents. Emailing or calling the DO to register an opinion on an important issue or piece of legislation will help guide me as I review bills in Sacramento. To share your opinion, please visit my website at https://ad75.asmrc.org/ or call my DO at (760) 4807570. My staff and I take our responsibility to assist residents of the 75th Assembly District seriously. We look forward to continuing to serve you in 2022. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, San Marcos, Temecula and Vista.
f California’s often misguided utility regulators wanted to prove they are determined to favor privately owned electric companies over almost any other interest, they could not do better than with new rules they now propose to inflict on people with rooftop solar panels. To understand this ongoing dispute, take a look at how utilities like Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric profit most from solar. When photovoltaic solar panels are installed atop roofs, parking lots and in backyards, the local electric company makes no money under the current rules, known as “net energy metering,” or NEM. Homeowners, parking lot owners and others with panels use the energy they need, then send the rest to the general grid and get paid minor sums for it. Without rooftop solar, which requires no new transmission lines to reach its end users, the private utilities must buy power from vast solar thermal farms in the California deserts, transporting the energy on lines that cost billions of dollars to erect. Without some form of solar, the utilities cannot meet state renewable energy quotas. Every cent the utilities spend on new transmission lines comes from consumers, but the companies are guaranteed to profit by more than 10 percent each year on all they spend for such capital investments. So the utilities have a strong interest in putting the clamps on rooftop solar. Did the PUC know before making its new rule proposal that within days, the federal government would OK building two new solar thermal farms deep in the Mojave Desert? It was the often-misguided Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego who first tried to stifle rooftop solar, carrying a 2020 bill with rules very like what’s now before the PUC, due for a vote Jan. 27 in San Francisco. Gonzalez, who also wrote the ill-advised AB5 that has wrecked the livelihoods of many freelance professionals and others, proposed ending the current guarantee to solar homeowners that rules will remain stable for at least 20 years after systems go in. She wanted the PUC to set new monthly fees for solar owners connected to the grid – about 97 percent of rooftop solar owners. Her bill died quickly.
But the newly termed out PUC Commissioner Martha Guzman-Aceves, a former United Farm Workers lawyer, picked up on it with today’s proposal, which goes beyond even what Gonzalez proposed. It would impose a monthly fee of approximately $50 to $70 on each rooftop owner and reduce what home solar owners get for their excess power, among other items. That’s just what the utilities want. They pretend this will save non rooftop solar owners money, but never mention their baked-in profits from new transmission lines, money that’s included in electric rates. Meanwhile, millions of consumers can already get solar power from publicly owned Community Choice Aggregations in places like Butte, Sonoma, Marin, San Francisco, Ventura and Los Angeles counties. These outfits provide energy cheaper than the utilities while renting space on the companies’ transmission lines to bring power to their customers. So it’s no wonder the utilities like the proposed new rules, with their disincentives to installing new rooftop panels. Said Southern California Edison when the plan got preliminary approval, “(This is) a meaningful step (to) reduce the financial burden on non-solar customers who have subsidized net energy metering…” That’s the kind of halftruth California’s utilities often spout. In this case, needed new transmission lines will ensure a large net benefit to the companies at customer expense. Right now, there is every likelihood the PUC will rubber stamp the new rules, no matter what it hears during the current public comment period, when anyone can speak or write their piece to the commissioners. But by Jan. 27, the PUC will have two new members, giving at least some hope this will suffer the same fate as the Gonzalez bill of 2020. Odds are the PUC will OK this proposal, just as it does most items its staff presents. That would be yet another contribution to the long tradition of state and federal regulators favoring the big companies over their customers. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

ENCINITAS — Homeless resident Victor “Vic” Ballance died of a suspected drug overdose on July 24 in a swath of undeveloped land just behind Oggi's Restaurant in Encinitas, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. After rumors of pervasive drug use and property crimes in the area, The Coast News, accompanied by two longtime Encinitas residents, Jeff Morris and “JD,” visited the location of Ballance’s death on the morning of Aug. 9 to inspect the area. Morris has had a long and contentious relationship with the city and has been accused of making threatening statements online, including to The
Coast News’ employees. But Morris, who said he has only defended himself against attacks on social media, reached out and offered to show the newspaper his concerns firsthand.

ENCINITAS — In a bulletin sent to teachers’ union members this week, the San Dieguito Faculty Association acknowledged it will not obtain the necessary signatures to trigger a recall election of Trustee Michael Allman, unceremoniously ending a monthslong campaign to unseat the first-time school board official. In the message, Duncan Brown, president of the San Dieguito Faculty Association, acknowledged that while the union won’t force a special recall election, the group has been successful in highlighting issues with the trustee. “Over 4,000 residents of Area 4 signed the petition and thousands more
district-wide are now aware of the dysfunction of our school board majority,” Brown wrote.

CARLSBAD — Several neighborhoods within the “digital capital of California” are experiencing a crime wave. Over the past six months, residents of Waters End, San Pacifico and Poinsettia Cove in the city of Carlsbad have reported a dramatic rise in crime, with law enforcement responding to almost daily reports of break-ins, thefts, trespassing, indecent exposure and other crimes. The rise in crime has been attributed to the city’s rising homeless population and transient individuals residing in four neighboring hotels. The city’s recent spike in illegal activity has become so overwhelming, Councilman Keith Black-
burn organized a community meeting on May 8 with about 150 residents in attendance. Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel, who represents the district, and Carlsbad Police Lt. Kevin Lehan, both attended the event to speak with residents. “I thought it was great and it was nice to see more than one community come out,” Lehan said about the meeting.

VISTA — Once a hotspot for international motorsports racing and diehard gearheads, the Carlsbad Raceway will be permanently memorialized with a monument near the original raceway grounds, it was announced during a June 22 ceremony in Vista. The monument site, located at Keystone Innovation Industrial Park on the border between Carlsbad and Vista, will overlook the former raceway and is directly in front of two popular Vista breweries, Eppig Brewing and Dogleg Brewing Company. The project will break ground immediately and is expected to be completed by summer 2022.
Filmmaker Todd Huffman came up with the idea for a monument in 2010 after completing his documentary, “Carlsbad USGP:1980 – One Day of Magic,” on legendary motocross rider Marty Moates. The film takes an inside look at Marty’s unexpected victory of the U.S. Grand Prix of Motocross in 1980 at Carlsbad Raceway, which was broadScan QR code for full story

back and let me know they wanted my stuff to be hung and that made me really happy,” Karavodin told The Coast News.

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside City Council recently approved a controversial four-story, 54-unit residential development with 3,244 square feet of ground-floor commercial space 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.

ENCINITAS — For the second time in eight years, a judge has rejected the city’s attempt to override Proposition A, a voter-approved initiative requiring a public vote for any major zoning and density changes, in its pursuit to meet state housing requirements. Judge Earl H. Maas III dnied the city’s request for declaratory and injunctive relief on Aug. 26 in Vista Superior Court, reaffirming the right of Encinitas voters to have the final say on development proposals that fall outside of certain land-use parameters and policies outlined in the city’s general plan. A so-called “friendly” lawsuit (two parties seek
judicial resolution to resolve a legal question that impacts them both), filed by the City of Encinitas against the California Department of Housing and Community Development in March 2020, sought to “invalidate, or carve-out, a portion of Proposition A,” namely “decisions on density, related to housing supply,” according to court Scan QR code for full story

SAN MARCOS – A San Marcos housing developer is facing backlash from the San Diego Tenants Union over its decision to redevelop an affordable housing complex, forcing dozens of families to relocate. National CORE, a nonprofit affordable housing developer, will soon begin the process of demolishing and rebuilding the Villa Serena Apartments located at 340 Marcos Street. According to National CORE, the first phase of the project, which is set to begin at the end of March, will relocate tenants in 60 units. Tenants received a 90day notice back in November, and that’s when the San Diego Tenants Union
became involved. In December, members of the Villa Serena Tenant Association with the support of the San Diego Tenants Union wrote a letter to National CORE alleging that National CORE “deprived [them] of their legal right to relocation assistance.” They are referring to documents that have been required to sign...

OCEANSIDE — While one of the first cities in the region to start regulating cannabis, the city of Oceanside has taken a somewhat slower and steadier approach to navigate through a relatively young, legal industry compared to other North County cities. Oceanside began regulating cannabis in 2018, two years after Proposition 64 passed in the state. Nearly 57% of Oceanside voters were in favor of the law. Unlike its neighbor cities of Vista and Encinitas, whose citizens had to vote on a measure that essentially forced those cities to start regulating cannabis, the Oceanside City Council approved an ordinance in
April 2018 allowing the establishment and operation of several medical cannabis-related uses including manufacturing, distribution, testing, cultivation and nurseries. Later in Sept. 2018, the council then allowed the city to issue only two licenses and conditional use permits for medical, non-storefront cannabis delivery businesses. Scan QR code for full story
CARLSBAD — Councilwoman Cori Schumacher submitted her letter of resignation today, officially ending her time on the Carlsbad City Council, according to sources. The city will release the next steps in the coming hours and Schumacher’s resignation is effective immediately. This is the second resignation by a District 1 councilwoman in the past two years. If an appointment or special election is not scheduled, the vacancy will be filled after the general election in 2022. According to a statement in Schumacher’s newsletter entitled, “Moving Forward,” she will be attending a university
outside San Diego. “It’s an opportunity I simply cannot refuse,” Schumacher wrote. “Unfortunately, this means that I am no longer able to continue in my role as your council member. And so, I have tendered my resignation to the city.” The past year has proved difficult for Schumacher... Scan QR code for full story
VISTA — Tucked away just off Vista Village Drive stands a painted history of the city and a world record. Since its completion 15 years ago, the Vista Historical Mural is showing its cracks, which is why Steve Thomas re-commissioned artist Clayton Parker to restore a portion of the artwork to its former glory. The mural runs 564 feet along Vistacado Lane between North Indiana and Michigan avenues, spanning nine businesses, and is recognized by Guinness World Record as the longest continuous mural in the world. The flowing mural connects Vista’s past as its present zooms by in
cars and trucks along Vista Village Drive. “There was old, rotted wood, there were doors that were never going to be used with our configuration and it was an eyesore,” Thomas said. “We tracked him down and he knows all the history. When I heard that history, it was, ‘You have to protect this.’” Scan QR code for full story

Issa backs suit against military vaccine mandate By Steve Wyer
REGION — Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) has come out in support of a lawsuit against the federal government that seeks to create a religious exemption for vaccination mandates in the armed forces. Issa, a Republican representing California’s 50th Congressional District spanning much of northeastern San Diego and parts of Riverside County, issued a press release on Dec. 20 stating that he was joining 37 other Republicans in the House of Representatives and eight members of the Senate in filing an amicus brief in support of the lawsuit. The litigation itself was filed in November on behalf of 35 active-duty Navy service members asking federal officials to create an exemption in President Joe Biden’s vaccination mandate for members of the military that would allow those with conflicting religious beliefs to opt-out of getting vaccinated against COVID-19. The current lack of such an exemption infringes upon the religious liberties of service members, hurts U.S. national security, and does not serve the interest of public health, Issa said in his office’s press release. “We will fight every day for the men and women who fight for us — even if it is one service member at a time,” the release states. “I am proud to join my colleagues in directly communicating to this court that these members of the Navy have constitutional rights that no one — not even President Biden
— can take away.” Issa also wrote an oped in Fox News on Dec. 15, arguing that the vaccination mandate will “decimate our military” and result in the potential dismissal of up to 50,000 service members who have refused to be vaccinated so far. “President Biden is threatening to discharge every member of the military who expresses a religious exemption or nothing more than a cautionary reluctance to immediately obey his sweeping vaccine mandate,” Issa wrote. “This would be as unnecessary as it is unjustified.” In August, the Pentagon announced that it would be requiring all members of the military to be vaccinated, with Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps personnel having until November 14 to receive the vaccine. The Army gave soldiers until December 15 to get vaccinated. However, in November, the lawsuit against the mandate was filed by the First Liberty Institute, a Texas-based non-profit law firm, on behalf of the 35 Navy service members. The suit names President Biden along with several other Pentagon officials as defendants and asks a federal court in Texas to issue a preliminary injunction that would declare the mandate unlawful and prevent the government from enforcing it. In the amicus brief filed in support of the suit, 46 members of Congress argue the mandate infringes upon protections of religion established in the TURN TO ISSA ON A14
REGION — Federal investigators continued sifting through the wreckage today of a business jet that slammed into a residential neighborhood near El Cajon, while the second of four people who died in the crash was identified. The Learjet 35A business jet, which seats eight people and took off from John Wayne Airport in Orange County, crashed at 7:15 p.m. Monday near the 1200 block of Pepper Drive and North Mollison Avenue in the unincorporated Bostonia neighborhood, near Gillespie Field airport. All four people aboard died. No injuries on the ground were reported. The plane, owned by Aeromedevac Air Ambulance, was operating as an air ambulance, and according to various reports, the people aboard were two pilots and two nurses. Aeromedevac Air Ambulance, based in El Cajon, has not commented on the crash, but it posted a photo on its Facebook page Wednesday saying, ``With a heavy heart we mourn the lives of our friends and our family.’’ CBS8 reported that the plane had flown a patient from Arizona to Orange County before attempting its return trip to Gillespie Field. On Tuesday, the International Association of EMTs and Paramedics via its Facebook page identified one of the crash victims as Local 162 President Laurie Gentz. The IAEP “extends sincere condolences for the devastating and sudden loss of Local 162 President Laurie Gentz, her fellow passengers and the Learjet flight crew ...,’’ the post stated. “President Gentz will be greatly missed by
all who knew her and all who benefit from her selfless contributions to organized labor in the Greater San Diego area.’’ the IAEP wrote on the Facebook page. The union representing Oceanside firefighters, meanwhile, reported that one of the victims was Tina Ward, a flight nurse and the wife of the department’s recently retired deputy chief, Joe Ward. WARD “It is with heavy hearts that the Oceanside Fire Department and their fire family would like to extend our deepest condolences to our recently retired Chief Ward, his family, and all family and friends of the Aeromedevac flight crew N880Z. Chief Ward’s wife, Tina, was a flight nurse on board of the aircraft
that crashed last night in El Cajon,’’ Oceanside Firefighters Association 3736 posted on Instagram. “We are shocked and saddened by this devastating news and are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.’’ The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board were leading the investigation into the crash. The NTSB reported Tuesday that the plane was on an “instrument approach’’ to Runway 17 at Gillespie Field, but the pilot requested a change to a “visual approach’’ on Runway 27A. “Shortly after air traffic control had cleared the airplane to land on Runway 27A, the airplane crashed into a residential area about 1.4 miles from the approach end of the runway,’’ according to the NTSB. Federal investigators were expected to be on the scene for at least two
more days. According to the NTSB, the plane was equipped with a cockpit voice recorder, but not a flight data recorder. Anyone who witnessed the crash or has possibly relevant information was asked to contact the NTSB by emailing witness@ntsb. gov. Pepper Drive was expected to remain closed between Topper Lane and North Second Street through Wednesday, officials said. The sheriff’s department tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office had cleared the crash site, and all road closures should be lifted by Wednesday evening. One home was damaged by the crash, but no injuries were reported on the ground. Witnesses on the ground told reporters that the crash occurred in very poor weather conditions, amid rain and thick fog.

Developer: Solana 101 Project to be completed in early 2023 Plans focus on reducing water, energy usage By Tigist Layne
SOLANA BEACH — The Solana 101 Project, a mixed-use project at the intersection of Highway 101 and Dahlia Drive, is expected to be completed and open to the public at the beginning of 2023. The project, which was originally approved by the Solana Beach City Coun-
cil back in 2018, includes 45,587 square feet of commercial office space, 10,562 square feet of restaurant space, 2,920 square feet of outdoor dining space and 4,142 square feet of retail space. The project, which is being built by Encinitas-based developer Zephyr, will also include 33,473 square feet of residential space, which will be comprised of two separate two-story buildings for a total of 25 residential units. The development features a two-level subterranean parking garage for
tenants, guests, employees and patrons of the new area, providing a total of 366 on-site parking spaces. Ryan Herrell, Zephyr executive vice president, confirmed during a City Council meeting last week that the opening date for the project would be in the first quarter of 2023. “It’s coming along great, we’re really excited,” Herrell said. “It’s going to be great for the community.” According to Zephyr, Solana 101 is planned with a focus on reducing energy and water consumption
and promotes alternative means of transportation to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This will be achieved through solar roofing and solar panels, as well as integrating effective sun control and reducing heat gain. Buildings will also be outfitted with low water use plumbing fixtures to reduce demand for water. The project is also less than a ½ mile from the train station, provides onsite electrical vehicle parking and bike storage and has a bus stop located at the
entrance. “It’s been really fascinating to watch the process of this actual construction,” Mayor Lesa Heebner said. “It has been a long road, and now we’re at the part where we’re looking forward to seeing it bloom.” A final landscape plan was approved by the Solana Beach council on last week. Solana Beach’s landscape architect, Pamela Elliott, confirmed that the plans are consistent with the city’s water-efficient landscape requirements, according to a city staff report.
The final plan includes updates to the number of trees the project would include, as well as a change in the species of some of the trees. “While the proposed landscape trees are different from the conceptual landscape plan previously reviewed by City Council,” the staff report said, “[Zephyr] has worked with the community to provide a variety of trees that are consistent with the existing tree species that currently exist along the Highway 101 and Sierra Avenue corridor.”

to perform a skin graft to remove the infection. During this second stay in the hospital, McKinley said she reached out to Emrani for help. Over the last year and a half, Emrani helped McKinley by keeping her in hotel rooms instead of living on the street, providing her rides to doctor visits and assisting her in finding permanent housing. The lawyer also flew her to Tennessee for her to reconnect with her estranged sister of 20 years. A few weeks ago, McKinley was able to secure a home in Carlsbad. Emrani said his firm is now helping her fill her new
home with furniture. While McKinley's living situation has improved, her injury has turned into complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), an incurable condition that develops in an area of the body, like the foot, after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack. “It’s literally the worst diagnosis you can get pain-wise,” Emrani said. “(McKinley) can barely walk now. She uses a walking stick.” Emrani has filed a lawsuit against BH Mechanical, seeking $10 million on McKinley's behalf. The case is set to go to trial Jan. 3, 2022. Since McKinley's injury, she has accrued about $600,000 in medical
expenses, according to Emrani. “She will be in excruciating pain through no fault of her own for the rest of her life,” Emrani said. “The HVAC company is taking 0% responsibility and the driver lied about her sticking her foot out.” The Coast News has reached out to Kennedy & Souza, the law firm representing BH Mechanical, and is awaiting comment. While McKinley said the pain is often unbearable, she remains hopeful about her future. McKinley told The Coast News she loves life, nature and hopes to someday have a fireplace and a little garden. “The great spirit really wants me alive,” she said.

What happened to sportsmanship?
ENCINITAS RESIDENT Jake Marshall, 23, after years of close calls, qualified for next season’s World Surf League Championship Tour, which has events worldwide. Courtesy photo
Marshall’s plan to become a pro surfer finally comes true sports talk jay paris
arshall’s plan to become a pro surfer finally comes true Jake Marshall knows two things well: how to read a break of a wave and the heartbreak that can accompany them. “Sometimes you fall and you have to pick yourself back up,” Marshall said. “It’s hard, for sure, but you end up being a better competitor by learning from it.” Marshall, of Encinitas, is riding high via his work on the waves as he begins his rookie season on the World Surf League Championship Tour. But his trek to the globe’s best surfing circuit was hardly as smooth as glass. “I’ve definitely had an interesting road,” Marshall, 23, said. It started when Marshall was 7 and his father, John, introduced him to surfing. They shared waves at Cardiff’s Seaside Reef and soon Marshall was shredding competitors as easily as he did clean sets. “My dad surfed and he just loves being in the ocean,” Marshall said. “It was something that was fun that we could do together. Then I figured out pretty quickly that I loved surfing and that I wanted to do it
all the time.” Marshall began climbing the professional surfing ladder with his goal of going against the sport's very best. That meant earning his water stripes in the qualifying and the challenger ranks. Toward the end of 2019 on the challenger level, which is one step below the championship category, Marshall was poised to advance. The top 12 surfers shed their challenger status to move up and Marshall, who knows all about positioning, was sitting pretty going into the tour’s last two events. Ever hear of an endless bummer? Marshall has, and he’s been there. After two first-round eliminations in Hawaii with a shoulder injury compromising Marshall’s form, he finished at No. 13. The luck of the draw, waves and heath had found someone else as Marshall just missed making the champions tour. “That was brutal and I was so disappointed in myself,” he said. “I was thinking, ‘Is this what I really wanted to be doing?’ “I knew it was, so it made me work harder and appreciate the grind even more. It seemed like I was doing it more for myself than anybody else. “It kind of made me grow as a person and it was a life lesson in becoming more of a man. I'm still learning, but I now know it's a long road to achieve something that you are striving toward.” Armed with a reinvigorated want-to, Marshall ran smack tap into a can'tdo. COVID-19 derailed the
2020 season, so Marshall's clear vision of his future was clouded again. He went from surfing to salsa and come again? With events on hold, Marshall started serving Mexican food at Municipal Taco in Oceanside. “It was cool and all,” he said. “But it also made me appreciate my surfing even more and that had me really wanting to get back out there.” When surfing returned in 2021, Marshall wasted little time. He finished fourth overall as a second-place finish at the US Open in Huntington Beach was among the results that elevated Marshall to where he is today: a card-carrying member of the WSL. “You have your end destination and how you picture it in your head,” Marshall said. “But it hardly ever goes that way.” What doesn’t go away is the sense of satisfaction of crossing off one goal, with an eye toward the next one and that’s performing well. “It definitely took a little time to sink in that I made it,” Marshall said. “I’m just ready to put the jersey on, paddle out and when I do that, it is going to be pretty cool. All of a sudden, it’s like this is it and I'm on the big stage.” But only after Marshall persevered after a few wipeouts that didn’t dunk his dream. Marshall held on so one day he could hang 10 while going against the world's top surfers.
SAN DIEGO — Holiday Bowl organizers formally announced cancellation of the game this week after they were unable to find a replacement team for UCLA, which was unable to play due to COVID-19 protocols within the Bruins’ program. “Sadly we are announcing that the 2021 SDCCU Holiday Bowl is canceled. We worked closely with Boo
Corrigan and the fantastic NC State Athletics staff to try and find a replacement team for UCLA, but were unable to do so,” Mark Neville, the game’s CEO, and Bob Bolinger, its president, said in a statement, referring to North Carolina State’s athletic director.

information felix taverna seldom seen. The look is dangerous and the visuals deter you away from attending live games and events. When you buy a ticket it does not include shouting vulgar and threats at anyone, let alone athletes. When you wish hardship, personal tragedy and death to family members then you have most definitely crossed the line. Sports is for our entertainment and pleasure and this type of caveman approach is not warranted or welcome. It’s only a game and we have lost our ground-floor level of respect. I would welcome any football program, from high school to professional, to watch the replay of the Army-Navy game played weeks ago in New Jersey. Now if you want to learn how to represent and display sportsmanship and appreciation for the game, this is your guide. From the coaches to the players of both Military academies, hats off to showing us what true competition and respect is all about. You watched that game and it brought back everything we were taught
as kids playing the game we love. After the game, win or lose, sportsmanship reigns supreme and is such a key component that has been lost recently in all sports. More importantly, what message are we sending to our children and young adults? It’s okay to be arrogant and disruptive and be swayed away from how you should act and represent. For the fans, it’s another whole level to voice ugly, crude and extremely insensitive remarks. Both are bad and both do not go hand in hand. Teaching our children should be a bi-product of making sports fun and enjoyable, without all the outside interferences that have no place in any athletic activity. Our children are our lifeline in training them in respect, love and hardfought competition. What they see is what they do. And what they do is not okay to imitate. We got to get back to a healthy sports menu across the board. We went over a year with no fans allowed at sporting sites or venues and when we finally get back whole, fans make it so much more difficult and ruin it for everyone else.

ports is getting ugly. Or I should say, it’s getting uglier. Before we even go into the upside-down spin of the COVID 19 pandemic that produced many empty stadiums and fields, the latest virus to wreak havoc is fan behavior. Let’s take a quick and detailed look at fans. Fans at sporting events have gone bonkers. Punching and kicking, throwing blows to others who have a different kind of jersey that you are wearing. The violence needs to be corrected and fans’ safety should be job one. And they should give a double dosage of protection to athletes. Still, it’s quite uncomfortable watching a game and cheering for your team. I have seen it firsthand and I am embarrassed by their child-like behavior. Something got to give and fast. We are much better than that. Since the resumption of fans back to stadiums fields and arenas, the total mindset of some fans is to disrupt and interfere with the game or events before during and after the game ends.

State electoral battlegrounds shift in North County By Steve Wyer
REGION — Recently finalized state district lines will shift several North County areas in favor of Democrats while strengthening the overall separation between coastal and inland communities, according to redistricting experts. The California Citizens Redistricting Commission finalized voting maps on Dec. 23 for California's State Senate and Assembly districts, completing an almost year-long process and making changes that will significantly reshape the state demographically, socioeconomically and politically. In redrawing the district maps in North County, the commission generally favored consolidating coastal communities with one another and doing the same with inland communities, said Patricia Sinay, who is a sitting member of the state redistricting commission. The commission also heavily considered the input of middle-class Latino residents, who expressed a strong desire to keep their communities consolidated along the state Route 78 corridor (encompassing Carlsbad, Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos and Vista), according to Sinay. “We knew and heard from the Latino community that a lot of Latinos lived along the 78 corridor, it’s an agricultural area that has a lot of Latino farmworkers,
The Coast News graphic
so in North County, we did try to keep parts of that corridor together,” Sinay said. "By and large, the final lines drawn in North County reflect both the interests of those seeking a more coastal-inland partition, as well as the Latino constituents interested in protecting their power as a voting bloc. “Keeping those Latino communities together…that was weighed equally with keeping coastal districts together as well as trying not to split counties or cities." CA State Senate Districts
In the case of what was previously California Senate District 36, redistricting shifted what was a slightly Republican-leaning region to a newly-formed
District 38 that now holds a decisive Democratic majority, according to Evan McLaughlin, a political data consultant for Redistricting Partners. District 38 will now run from roughly San Onofre in the north to Mission Beach in the south and will add more coastal cities in North County, including Del Mar, La Jolla, and Pacific Beach, while losing some of the Orange County territory held by the old District 36, such as Aliso Viejo, Laguna Hills and Dana Point. Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, a Democrat, and Republican Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett are among the leading candidates vying to replace current officeholder State Sen Patricia Bates
(R-Laguna Niguel), who will be termed out of office in 2022. By McLaughlin’s analysis, redistricting appears to have had a decidedly favorable impact on Blakespear’s prospects of winning the State Senate seat. “San Diego County is poised to elect a third Democratic state Senator with the creation of this new 38th district,” McLaughlin said. “I think it will still be considered a competitive district, but now with the inclusion of Pacific Beach, UCSD, and La Jolla, those are very clearly Democratic-leaning areas.” The redistricting commission restructured the district in a way that makes District 38 less of Orange County and more of North
County San Diego, while also consolidating coastal cities and neighborhoods throughout the region — both factors that will help swing the district blue, according to McLaughlin. “The old 36 (District) had much more of a North County-Orange County split, but this new one is much more oriented on the coast…keeping that coastal orientation appears to be a higher priority for the commission than maintaining more compact boundaries or staying within county lines,” McLaughlin said. Further east, the commission split what was previously District 38 into two new sectors — District 32 and the newly formed District 40, which includes cities such as Escondido, Po-
way, and Ramona. Once again, McLaughlin said that the splitting of 38 clearly represents the commission’s intent to partition communities along coastal/inland lines, and the larger district’s division helps make what was a relatively conservative region suddenly more competitive for Democrats. “The division of these two districts, one  clearly following the I-15 running through these coastal and beach communities, and the other  following the I-15 towards East County…reflects that coastal rationale on the part of the commission,” he said. “District 38 was more Republican-leaning but now over time you’ll see District 40 become much more competitive.” CA State Assembly Districts
North County’s new California State Assembly districts were also politically impacted by the new maps, with two newly created districts looking more competitive while one district shifted decidedly blue. In the case of Assembly districts 76 and 77, the commission essentially swapped the two sectors — much of the old District 76 now forms what is now District 77, and vice versa. The old 76th Assembly District spanned from San Onofre in the north down TURN TO DISTRICTS ON A14

School district pleads to revoke vax mandate
By Bill Slane
By Tigist Layne
RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe School District’s governing board last week passed a resolution urging Gov. Gavin Newsom to reconsider or rescind a statewide vaccine mandate the governor announced back in October. The state’s vaccine mandate, the first of its kind in the country, will be required for in-person school attendance for all students attending public and private California schools. The order is expected to go into effect in July 2022, once the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, fully approves the COVID vaccine for each age group. Currently, only the Pfizer vaccine is fully approved for people 16 and older. The Pfizer vaccine also has emergency authorization for children ages 12 to 16. The Rancho Santa Fe School District was one of the first public school districts in the county to reopen for full-time, in-person instruction in August 2020. According to the resolution, “the district has demonstrated during the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years that it is fully able to provide for a safe in-person learning environment for students during the COVID-19 public health emergency.” “The governor’s vaccination mandate severely limits local school district control in deciding the best way to ensure all students access to in-person education and the board recognizes that many families who choose not to vaccinate their children will disenroll their children; given this likely result, the vaccination mandate interferes with a local school district’s ability to provide in-person for its students,” the resolution continues. The resolution was brought forward on Dec. 16 by outgoing Board President Kali Kim, and passed unanimously, 4-0. Board Member Rose Rohatgi was not in attendance but sent a statement to the board that she also did not support the mandate. “I’m pro-vaccine myself but I can support having it be the parent’s choice for their children,” said Board Member John Tree. Newly-elected Board President Jee Manghani agreed, saying, “I believe every parent should have that choice for themselves and their children.” According to the mandate, students who remain unvaccinated will have the option to attend online school full time, attend independent study programs or be homeschooled.

Carlsbad OKs organic waste plan Statewide organic waste law starts Jan. 1 By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — On New Year's Day, every municipality in California must have a plan in place to meet organic waste goals set by the state legislature. Senate Bill 1383 mandates the amount of organic waste disposal in landfills be cut by 75% and recover at least 20% of edible food disposal by 2025. Accordingly, the Carlsbad City Council approved its Sustainable Materials Management Implementation plan on Dec. 14, along with adding new plastic-ban policies citywide. The state’s new organics law requires businesses and residents to divert food waste from landfills. Methane from food waste is a major source of emissions and the state is aggressively trying to reduce emission levels as climate change concerns grow. “To see it come full circle after a few years is exciting,” Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel said. “It’s important and not just from a climate perspective. This is one of those things that we’re bringing change to our community. This is going to be something future generations thank us for.” Residents will be provided organics collection
services from the city’s new waste hauler, Republic Services, which begins on July 1, 2022. According to the staff report, the city’s Sustainable Materials Management Implementation plan will decrease greenhouse gases, or GHGs, by 3,344 metric tons while removing 2,143 metric tons of trash from area landfills. The new plastic bans include a phased approach over the next two years starting with an ordinance for single-use plastic and Styrofoam food ware on request, which begin on June 1, 2022, and be banned by July 1, 2023. Also, bans on plastic bottles for city facilities and city-affiliated events and intentionally releasing balloons start on July 1, 2023. The council approved the hiring of six new positions to manage the new organics and plastic programs, along with a raise for the Senior Program Manager. The annual cost for four of the positions paid through the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund comes to $537,375, while the other two positions will be paid from the general fund at an estimated total of $243,508 annually. Some on the council expressed concerns with rising costs associated with state law compliance and new positions to execute

gram. BCycle already has some of its docking stations along Coast Highway where the event will take place. “That’s a cool opportunity for BCycle to show off and for residents to try out that new program that will have just launched,” Buck said. The city said the event should not be considered a street fair, but there will be some activities set up by partners during Cyclovia for those in attendance. Encinitas has partnered with organizations like the San Diego Mountain Bike Association, the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, Bike-Walk Encinitas and others to provide activities such as a safety skills course, a pump track and more. From low-rider bicycles to tall bikes, vintage bikes and homemade bikes, Cyclovia Encinitas’ inaugural event saw myriad styles of transportation — a unique opportunity to show off whatever special way you get around that does not include a car. “If you’ve got something cool, it’s a good place to be seen for sure,” Buck said.

the city’s programs. Councilman Keith Blackburn, who supported the item, said the growing cost will put stress on the city’s bottom line. Mayor Matt Hall said the more than 40 new hires over the past two years have also taken a toll on the budget. Regardless, the two supported the measure and the city appears to be in compliance with SB 1383. For those not in compliance by Jan. 1, they will be fined up to $10,000 per day, according to the law. Hall stressed for city staff to connect with business owners to help ease the transition to new products and find distributors. Additionally, Hall, Councilman Peder Norby and Environmental Management Director Jamie Wood said costs are dropping for reusable and biodegradable food ware and utensils. One of the biggest things with this is finding the marine-degradable or compostable materials to replace the plastics and Styrofoam,” Wood said. “It’s out there, but it’s not as easily available. We did a pilot in 2019 and finished this year and found working with restaurants and businesses most are willing to do it, they just need the equipment to replace the plastics and Styrofoam.”
ENCINITAS — After a yearlong hiatus due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Cyclovia, a car-free cycling event, will return to Encinitas, giving cyclists a unique opportunity to ride Coast Highway 101. Cyclovia, or “cycleway,” events are held in cities around the world. Each host city closes off vehicular access to a section of roadway and for several hours allows only self-powered modes of transportation, such as cycling, e-biking, walking and skating. In 2020, Cyclovia Encinitas was the first event of its kind in North County, but San Diego, Imperial Beach, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach and Chula Vista also host their own Cyclovia events. The event will block off a portion of South Coast Highway 101 from D Street to J Street in downtown Encinitas from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on January 9. The city’s previous Cyclovia event attracted upwards of 5,000 cyclists to downtown Encinitas and the city hopes for a similar turnout this year. “That turnout in 2020 was with a brand new event that not everyone quite understood,” Nick Buck, the city's special events and projects supervisor, told The Coast News. “In the last couple of years with the boom of the popularity of cycling and e-bikes and other things, people seem eager to get out on bike and on foot.” Cyclovia Encinitas will also come just days after the launch of BCycle in the city of Encinitas, an e-bike share pilot pro-

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING SAN DIEGUITO WATER DISTRICT WATER CAPACITY FEES PUBLIC HEARING: JANUARY 19, 2022 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to the “Mitigation Fee Act” California Government Code Sections 66000-66025 (AB1600) that the Board of Directors of the San Dieguito Water District (District) will hold a public hearing on JANUARY 19, 2022, at 5:00 PM at 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, California 92024 to present the Water Capacity Fee Study, dated December 16, 2021, and to consider the adoption of Resolution No. 2022-01, implementing adjustments to the District’s water capacity fees on April 1, 2022, October 1, 2022, April 1, 2023 and October 1, 2023. The District imposes capacity fees (Water Capacity Fees) when a property seeks to establish or expand a connection to the District’s water system. Based on the Water Capacity Fee Study, it was determined that the Water Capacity Fee should be increased. For a ¾-inch meter (typical single-family dwelling), the Water Capacity Fee would increase to $9,140, with the $5,840 increase phased-in every six months for a two-year period (a $1,460 increase every six months for two years). Larger meters would pay a higher Water Capacity Fee based on meter equivalent ratios. For additional information, please call 760-633-2709. 12/31/2021, 01/07/2022 CN 26136

CITY OF CARLSBAD NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Carlsbad will hold a virtual public hearing at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022 to consider approving threeyear rate increases for potable water, recycled water, and wastewater services. Those wishing to protest the proposed rate increases must submit their concerns in writing to the office of the City Clerk any time before the close of the public hearing. You may hand deliver your written protest or mail it to City of Carlsbad, Office of the City Clerk, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad, CA 92008. In order to be counted, protests must be signed by the property owner or ratepayer and include the protester’s printed full name and the specific rate being protested. Only one protest notice is allowed per parcel. Emailed protests do not satisfy the signed written protest requirement. If a majority of ratepayers protest the increase, it will not be passed. You are welcome to speak at the public hearing, but official protests must be made in writing. Consistent with SB 323, which was signed into law in late 2021, any judicial action challenging these fees for water or sewer service shall be commenced within 120 days of the date of the resolution approving the increased rates. In the interest of public health and safety, we are temporarily taking actions to prevent and mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic by holding City Council and other public meetings online only. All public meetings will comply with public noticing requirements in the Brown Act and will be made accessible electronically to all members of the public seeking to observe and address the City Council. All comments received by 2 p.m. the day of the meeting will be shared with the City Council prior to the meeting and all protests that satisfy the requirements above received by the clerk’s office before the close of the public hearing will be counted. However, any comments received against the proposed rate increase will not be counted as protests unless they each satisfy the protest requirements described above. Written comments will not be read out loud. If you wish to participate virtually, you may visit: https://www.carlsbadca.gov/city-hall/meetings-agendas for meeting instructions. Copies of the staff report will be available on and after Jan. 7, 2021. Those persons wishing to speak on these proposed rate adjustments are cordially invited to attend the public hearing.

shown herein. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $928,041.22. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. 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. FOR TRUSTEE SALE INFORMATION PLEASE CALL: 833-561-0243 WWW. S A L E S . B D F G RO U P.

1st Amendment to the Constitution, as well as in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a bill that was signed into federal law in 1993 and prohibits any substantial burden of an individual’s right to exercise their religion. Additionally, because the mandate’s enforcement would mean the dismissal of non-compliant service members, the vaccine requirement actually undermines national security, the brief argues. “If the mandate stands…it will be more difficult for our military to recruit highly qualified individuals of faith to serve our country — a consequence that is wholly unnecessary, damaging to our military’s morale, and damaging to our national security,” the brief reads. These arguments were reaffirmed in a statement released by Issa’s communications director Jonathan Wilcox, who called the government’s vaccine requirement “destabilizing” and a “betrayal” of service members. “The Biden White House’s handling of the coronavirus has been a series of contradictions, inconsistencies and credibility shattering errors, and its vaccine mandates are a serious and destabilizing mistake for Constitutional, procedural, statutory, and common sense reasons,” Wilcox said. “The military mandate stands to decimate our active-duty fighting force and continues this Administration’s serial betrayal of our men and
women in uniform. These mandates need to stop now.” Issa, who served in the Army himself and achieved the rank of captain before pursuing a career in politics, is vaccinated himself and strongly believes in the efficacy of vaccines, which he said “have helped millions of Americans — myself included.” However, the congressman has stressed that he does not believe that everyone needs the vaccine, as he claims that those who have already recovered from COVID-19 have natural antibodies that provide immunity against the virus. In October, Issa introduced legislation into Congress that would allow for a federal exemption from vaccination mandates for those with demonstrated natural immunity, according to the Times of San Diego. Having already contracted the virus does not protect people from COVID-19 as well as the vaccine, according to the Center for Disease Control, as an infected person can contract the coronavirus multiple times. A study cited by the federal agency asserts that someone with a past case of COVID-19 is twice as likely to avoid reinfection as compared to someone with a past case of the virus who does not get vaccinated. Vaccines remain highly effective in preventing severe illness and death caused by the virus even with the onset of new variants, and the CDC recommends that everyone get vaccinated regardless of age group or supposed natural immunity.

And District 77 formerly ran from Rancho Bernardo down toward Montgomery Field in the south, covering a vast swathe of inland territory, including Mira Mesa, Poway, and Rancho Santa Fe. In the new Assembly District 77 — which runs from Carlsbad south towards Imperial Beach and takes in Pacific Beach, Point Loma, Coronado, and swathes of downtown San Diego — the district’s heavy coastal bent will favor Democrats, McLaughlin said. “There’s a lot of new areas in this district. It shed cities like Oceanside and Vista along the 78 corridor that had made what was 76 a much more competitive district…the new 77 is heavily coastal and doesn’t appear to be competitive for Republicans any longer,” McLaughlin said. Conversely, the swapping of territory between the two districts has made
the new District 76 — which tracks much of what was a Democrat-dominated District 77 — substantially more competitive than before, potentially giving Republicans a chance at electoral power in the region,

District 3 extends northward along the coast to include the City the consultant said.

The area also includes the Harmony Grove, Elfin Forest, and Rancho Santa Fe census-designated places. The district’s total population is 58.7% White, nearly 18.9% Asian, 13.5% Latino and 1.8% Black. Rancho Santa Fe is a census-designated place with a population of about 2,500 people.

The wealthy suburb has previously been home to celebrities like Bill Gates, Janet Jackson and Bing Crosby. The area’s demographics are similar to the overall makeup of District 3, which points to why the commission decided to move Rancho Santa Fe from District 5, a district that is 43% White and 41% Latino. the old 73 which was very Republican, this new district is a mixed bag partisan-wise.” Regardless of the electoral ramifications to redistricting, Sinay emphasized that input from the public — and not political considerations — was ultimately one of the biggest factors in shaping the North County districts. “With the maps being drawn, politics was pulled out, we didn’t look at politics at all…the input we received from these communities was really important to us, and it was a major impetus for how things ended up…these maps are a reflection of what we heard from the public and what the fourteen of us processed from that in creating fair and representative maps for everyone,” Sinay said.

Local shops get holiday booster
small talk jean gillette
Raising kids ain’t for the clean freaks
By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The holiday shopping season came back in force this year. Supply chain issues and shoppers spending their dollars with local merchants were two of the biggest factors in the city's improved holiday shopping season, according to Christine Davis, executive director of the Carlsbad Village Association. While the official numbers are still outstanding for the City of Carlsbad, Davis said it appears the economic output has reached 2019 levels. Last year, merchants and small businesses were devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, but this year Davis said locals rallied around local businesses. “This holiday season was meeting the same as 2019,” she said. “That was very promising. I’m hoping that the 2021 shopping season helped heal some of the wounds from 2020. This is a good start.” Davis said there was a noticeable increase in traffic in the Village from Small Business Saturday through the end of the season. She said the pro-small business messaging from the CVA, chamber and city is sticking with residents and even tourists. Davis said the competition with online platforms likely dropped as guidelines have relaxed. In 2020, health officials and elected leaders encouraged more online shopping and avoiding crowded areas indoors due to the pandemic. This year, though, the supply chain issues drove down confidence with TURN TO SHOPPING ON B2
EDITOR’S NOTE: This week’s column was originally published in the Oceanside Blade-Citizen in 1992. s the years pass by and I look back on the first five years of my children’s lives, I suppose my memories will soften, but if I were asked right now to sum up life with toddlers in one word, that word would be “sticky.” This profound revelation came over me as I cleaned up in preparation for the arrival of a longtime friend who had not yet seen my new home. The term “clean” was once a simple issue, back when I had time and energy to be a clean freak. I now have several levels of “clean” for my home, prompted by being the wife of a messy-but-lovable pack rat and the mother of two pairs of ever-sticky little hands. There is now “everyday” clean (the only visitors also will have children), “downstairs only” clean (for those who will have no opportunity to explore the upstairs apocalypse), and the exhausting “first-visit” clean. I barely survived the first six months in this house when everyone wanted a complete tour. I now spend my time with other moms who are oblivious to the stickiness quotient. In fact, in my circle, a too-clean house is consid-

Kate Gibson relishes role as special advocate By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — Shortly after moving to Encinitas 30 years ago, Kate Gibson received a visit from a neighbor looking for help. During a short walk to her new acquaintance's home, Gibson learned her neighbors were a foster family who had just taken in a nine-year-old boy the previous night. The boy was set to start school that morning but had locked himself in a closet. Gibson had previous experience working with children but nothing quite to the extent of raising foster youth. “He was just the sweetest boy that had the look

Gibson said that what she saw that day led her to become a direct advocate for foster children. However, it wasn’t until years later when Gibson became a court-appointed special advocate, or CASA, through the organization Voices for Children. “Years later I heard about them and kept telling

kept me coming back.” Gibson finally took the leap about four years ago to become a special advocate. Just recently, Gibson saw the first child she worked with find a forever home. According to the County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency, 38,653 referrals were made to the child abuse hotline
concerning the safety and well-being of 44,500 children in San Diego County in the fiscal year 2019-20. Of those children, approximately 1,200 entered the foster care system, with 62% of children in foster care in San Diego County being five years old or younger. Currently, there are roughly 3,530 children and youth in the county are receiving some kind of child welfare service, whether extended foster care or other kinds of social services. Gibson said her work as an advocate can help to keep some of those children from falling through the cracks of the system. “Like most systems that are large, nothing happens quickly.

Rancho Mirage observatory shifts stargazing online hit the road e’louise ondash An observatory in Rancho Mirage? Who knew? I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t. Maybe it’s not all my fault, though. It’s been a difficult time these last two years trying to accommodate visitors at many attractions, especially a notso-usual observatory in the desert. “(We’ve remained closed for) stargazing due to our limited capacity for social distancing and the need for enhanced safety protocols when sharing an eyepiece at the telescope,” explains the observatory’s Program Coordinator Lauren Zuckerberg. “So, in place of in-person events, we’ve been creating content for our YouTube channel since the beginning of the pandemic.” We typically think of observatories as mountaintop bastions, but this one is attached to a library in the Coachella Valley. The futuristic, double-domed building sits adjacent to Highway 111, the main thoroughfare that takes travelers through the string of desert cities that includes Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta. “People think there is a silo in the middle of the city,” jokes City Astronomer Eric McLaughlin, who may be one of the few people to have such a title. He grew up in Southern California and vacationed with his family in the Coachella Valley, “so when I was wrapping up grad work in astronomy (at San Diego State University) and saw they were building an observatory in one of my favorite places,” he had to apply. McLaughlin was hired a week before the observatory opened in March 2018.
THE RANCHO Mirage Library and Observatory, built with “use-it-or-lose-it” state education funding, opened March 2018. Throughout the pandemic, in lieu of in-person presentations, the staff has provided many online educational sessions. Courtesy photo
The origin of the observatory? “The city had some use-it-or-lose-it-type state funding for an educational facility,” Zuckerberg explains, “and after soliciting ideas from the community, the city council proceeded to investigate the construction of an observatory. After determining it was feasible, they made the project official.” The COVID-19 pandemic has quashed nearly all in-person stargazing but McLaughlin and Zuckerberg are hoping to resume in the coming months. They are looking forward to hosting visitors who come to peer through the 27-inch Plane Wave CDK telescope with remote-controlled technology. I don’t claim to understand what that means, but it allows users to see objects millions of light-years from Earth. I was among a special group in mid-November that looked through the telescope and saw the moon, which was partially veiled in clouds, but still bright enough to look impressive through the lens. The best time for viewing other heavenly bodies, though, is during the new phase of the moon (when
shoppers turned to local merchants, Davis said.

The program pushes the sale of gift cards to local businesses with added cash bonuses for each level of card. Davis said the program will continue until the funding runs dry. Song Bledsoe and his wife, owners of Studio 1220, a women’s boutique clothing store with locations in Carlsbad, Coronado and Texas, told ABC 10 News sales increased nearly 30% compared to 2020. The National Retail Federation estimated holiday shopping could increase by as much as 11.5% this year. The holiday season runs through Dec. 31.
“What I love about working here and …about astronomy in general, is that I appreciate the vast context in which we live and can share that with ev-
eryone,” McLaughlin says. “It’s essentially impossible to capture in any other way.” The observatory also has an outdoor deck just below the dome that provides another area for stargazing using the observatory’s smaller telescopes, or visitors can bring their own. High walls around the deck keep out light from below. From here, we took a look at Jupiter and Saturn. The partially cloudy night didn’t give us the clearest view, but we could see the planets and one of Jupiter’s moons. But wait…there’s even more, and weather conditions don’t matter for this feature. It’s the Integrated Space Theater system that projects astronomical films on the inside of the observatory’s closed dome. The system includes seven projectors, four speakers and one subwoofer that gives visitors short, stunning astronomical films. Our demonstration “trip” through the universe felt as though we were in a flight simulator with a vivid, panoramic view of the universe with not a bit of interference from inclement weather.
“A CASA has a very unique view when it comes to advocacy. We can look at their school records and say what’s this pattern going on here, then we connect it with the fact they haven’t been to therapy in three months. There’s just a nice consistency there,” Gibson said. Even after her experience helping the young boy with her neighbor 30 years ago, Gibson had a lot of doubts about her ability to become an advocate for children. But once her heart was touched during that interaction with a scared little boy, her heart has never stopped caring for foster children. Kelly Capen Douglas, president and CEO of Voices for Children, said the organization is grateful for local advocates
such as Gibson who help thousands of foster youth children every year. “It is an honor for us at Voices for Children to support Kate and more than 1,000 community members who stepped up this year to serve as CASA volunteers for children in foster care in San Diego County,” said Douglas. And for those considering joining the profession, Gibson believes that anyone can be a strong advocate for a child struggling in the system. “I truly believe that if someone has the tiniest doubt about looking into becoming a CASA, they should follow through with it,” Gibson said. “Because it will take you places that you never could have imagined and I can say that for myself.”
THE DOME of the Rancho Mirage Observatory serves two purposes: It houses the CDK700 telescope and serves as a “screen” for short, space-themed films that take visitors to galaxies far, far away. Courtesy photo

kids’ cases, the more time put in, the more energy and hard work that is put into it, it speaks to the foundation of what CASAs try to do.” Gibson said the work of a court-appointed special advocate is to build relationships with abused and neglected children. For many kids in the system, an advocate is the one person that sticks with children through a variety of difficult moves, ranging from homes to schools. A CASA works with other caseworkers, teachers and school administrators, lawyers and others attached to a child’s welfare case to make sure they are getting the care they need.

Used bike donations needed for kids By City News Service
REGION — Five local Trek Bicycle locations next month will accept donations of used bikes that will be refurbished and given to children from atrisk communities, it was announced today. In collaboration with the San Diego chapter of Free Bikes 4 Kidz, the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition will host the donation drive for gently used bikes, with the goal of collecting over 1,000. The Trek Bicycle locations will accept donations from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Jan. 8. Volunteers will transport the bikes to Free Bikes 4 Kidz for repairs, and then donate them to young people in the county, with help from partner organizations, including Outdoor Outreach and the Kiwanis Club of Southeastern San Diego. “Every child, every smile is a story,” said Terry Esau, founder of Free Bikes 4 Kidz. “We all remember our first bike, but millions of kids will never have that memory. We are trying to change that.” The five Trek Bicycle locations that will accept used bicycles are: - Kearny Mesa: 4240 Kearny Mesa Road, Suite 108, San Diego; - La Mesa: 8495 Fletcher Pkwy., La Mesa; - North County: 1617 Capalina Road, Unit B, San Marcos; - Solana Beach: 124 N. Rios Ave., Solana Beach; and - South Bay: 3901 Bonita Road, Bonita. “I have seen thousands of smiles on kids, and rivers of tears in their parents’ eyes when a kid picks out their own, very first bike,” Esau said. “I never tire of that story. It only costs us $25 to put a

deserving child on a bike and give them a new helmet. That is like four Starbucks coffees.” According to the Bicycle Coalition, millions of children across the United States, including from low-income or communities of color, lack safe opportunities to exercise outdoors. That lack of physical activity is associated with a higher risk of childhood obesity or developing Type 2 diabetes. At the same time, almost 15 million bicycles are discarded by Americans every year, which further clutters up landfills. “Free Bikes 4 Kidz aims to address both issues by repairing and restoring unwanted bikes and giving them to local youth, affording them the joy and freedom of two wheels,” according to the Bicycle Coalition. A national organization, Free Bikes 4 Kidz has given away over 100,000 bicycles since its inception in 2008. The San Diego
chapter of Free Bikes 4 Kidz started in September. “Free Bikes 4 Kidz’ impact has been felt by thousands of children across the country,” said Sylvie Froncek, programs director of the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition. “Free Bikes 4 Kidz’ mission aligns with our own...
That’s why we’re proud to be a supporting partner this year.” San Diego Bike Coalition advocates for and protects the bicycle riders’ rights and promotes bicycling “as a mainstream, safe and enjoyable form of transportation and recreation.”

Waite scores again with Shootz Fish & Beer lick the plate david boylan
’ve met hundreds of chefs over the years writing and recording Lick the Plate, all having varying levels of skill, creativity, accomplishments and approachability. But the chef that possesses all of these attributes is Davin Waite, who I’ve featured several times on Lick the Plate for his groundbreaking and wildly successful restaurant adventures, including Wrench & Rodent, Whet Noodle and The Plot, a 100% plantbased collaboration with his wife Jessica, all within a walking distance of each other in Oceanside. Shootz Fish & Beer is a collaborative effort between pro surfer Cheyne Magnusson and Davin to create a casual counter-style, Maui-meets-Baja menu of poke, tacos and gritty gourmet food accentuated by a fresh raw oyster and sashimi bar. The restaurant was named after a favorite slang term in Cheyne’s native Hawaii where it means “OK” or an acknowledgment of sorts. Cheyne’s influences include his lifelong passions for skate and surf culture, and on the culinary side the nuances of traditional poke preparation. Growing up spear-fishing off the coast of Maui along with many years of his own recipe experimentation as inspiration, Cheyne partnered with fellow surfer Chris Slowey, CEO of local brewery and hospitality design-build firm CLTVT in 2017, with the hopes of bringing his obsession to life – Hawaiian-style poke that reflects the intuitive approach of the Polynesian culture. After a year of success-
CHEF DEVIN WAITE at his latest restaurant Shootz Fish and Beer in Oceanside. Waite has opened several successful restaurant ventures in North County, including Wrench & Rodent, Whet Noodle and The Plot, a 100% plant-based restaurant with his wife, Jessica. Photo courtesy of Allison McCulloch
ful, small poke pop-ups at local breweries, the two regrouped in early 2021 to hatch the foundation. Both Chris and Cheyne had existing relationships with Davin and the result was Shootz. The daily specials result from Davin’s commitment to sustainable and total utilization cooking techniques which incorporate the entirety of each fish in his kitchen — from
ribs and skin to marrow. By purchasing whole fish, a range of cuts that represent a variety of flavors and textures are featured. The most tender cuts are reserved for poke and sashimi specials, and the remaining parts are featured in ways that are creative and produce less waste. Examples would be fish skin fried to make “chips,” ribs and collars served to-
SAN ELIJO’S NEW RESTAURANT

gether with Korean chili wing sauce, trim pieces are used for Shootz fish balls (of which I tried and loved) and bones are simmered to make fish gravy. The menu is fluid and depends on what is fresh and available as we have learned to expect from Davin, but there are fixtures that include four tacos and “Cheyne’s OG.” That’s the poke bowl that started Shootz made with
sushi-grade bigeye and yellow-fin tuna sourced from Hawaii fresh and locally. The “San Miguel” taco has Ensenada-style shrimp and Shootz Sauce inspired by one of the team’s favorite Baja taco shops. There is also a rotating fresh sashimi and raw oyster bar curated by Chefs Henri Ñol (The Plot) and Beecher Cooney (Campfire) featuring Hama Hama and other varieties sourced from the Pacific Northwest. While the focus is on fish, there will always be at least one vegan option. And of course, given that SPAM is an essential staple of Hawaiian cuisine look for that to pop up on occasion. And let’s not forget the beer part. Their offerings are designed to complement the flavor profiles of the food and the perfect post-surf or whatever gets you hungry session. AleSmith contract-brews Shootz, a crisp Japanese-style lager that utilizes rice in its grain bill and is available both on draft at Bottlecraft and in retail 6-packs of 16 oz. cans. Additional recipes in the works include a double IPA, a rosé beer infused with cherry blossom water, and a non-alcoholic brew. As the newest addition to North Oceanside’s Tremont Collective that I featured recently in LTP, Shootz shares a street-facing café and bar with local San Diego booze retailer Bottlecraft. Combined with the collective’s communal 3,400-square-foot open-air patio, the space becomes a perfect space for exploring the Hawaiian and Baja-inspired street food that is both playfully irreverent and deliberately thoughtful with the craft beer selection San Diego is celebrated for.

Coffee, champagne for this NYE
appy New Year! There is so much hope in that exclamation point, isn’t there? Out with the old, in with the new! 2022 can’t be more Covid-y than 2021… right? Why am I having déjà vu right now? Did I say something similar exactly one year ago? Probably, but this time it’s going to be true! I can feel it. I’m so excited about flipping open my new alumni calendar* that I actually want to stay up until midnight to welcome in the very first moments of what will certainly be the best year of all of our lives. But how do I do that? I’m perfectly capable of streaming the same episodes of the same sitcoms again or doom-scrolling on my phone until the wee hours, but more often than not, I’m in bed well before the witching hours. That’s no way to celebrate such an epic change of an era. I’m going to need a spark — a booster, so to speak — to stay in peak awake mode. Champagne or sparkling wine is the traditional New Year’s holiday’s must. They are essentially the same thing but one is produced with grapes from the Champagne region of France. They are pretty particular about that distinction. A quick search reveals more than a few bubbly cocktails mixed with that magic elixir, Red Bull, but TURN TO CHEERS! ON B7

This 96-point Jeb Dunnuck beauty comes from Immortal’s Hidden Ridge Vineyard located among Santa Rosa, Sonoma Valley and St. Helena in Napa Valley, and features a memorable bouquet of black currants, graphite and tobacco, with concentrated ripe fruit mixed alongside earthiness and minerality on the palate.

parade of wines for our annual “Top 10 Wines” list was positioned around my computer on Christmas eve. But after several days, my partner Rico Cassoni and I cultivated our final list for Taste of Wine’s Top 10 Wines for 2021.

those are for the young. I’m not looking to shock my heart back into action or speed up my waltzing so I can make it out onto the dance floors at the hippest clubs in the Gaslamp. I just need a little help keeping the ol’ eyes open while the family rewatches "Die Hard" for the third time since Christmas Eve. Coffee! I think. Shockingly, there are very few champagne recipes that include coffee, but I find a nameless party punch from a 2010 House & Home blog post that looks promising. Strong on coffee and brandy, and light on the champagne with a bit of powdered sugar just for fun. I start trying to divide fractions and carry the two but my brain is quickly scrambled. I’m going to make the full batch. It’s good to have goals. Ingredients for batch quantity: • 4 cups cooled coffee • 2 tbsp powdered sugar • 1 cup brandy • 3/4 cup chilled champagne or sparkling wine • Garnish (optional): Whipped Cream topped with finely ground espresso beans Directions • Step 1: Combine the coffee, sugar, and
brandy in a large pitcher and chill. • Step 2: Pour the champagne into a punch bowl and add the chilled coffee mixture. • Step 3: Mix gently. I think that should do it. Luckily, I already have all the ingredients inhouse. The pandemic has been very, very kind to our liquor cabinet. As long as I have a mug or two of fine, locally-roasted coffee while I mix it all up, I should definitely be able to make it past the dropping of the ball and Auld Lang Syne to welcome in 2022. Definitely. Probably. I think that is what I’ll name it. The “Probably Better” cocktail. “Cheers!” to 2021 and to you. Out with the old. In with the new. *I’m always shocked when I receive the University calendar in the mail. Glossy photographs of my former college campus along with the request for a donation.

Rico’s Top 5 Picks 1. Cellier des Princes, Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Sainte Vierge, Courthezon, France, 2019. $27. I always like including at least one great value wine in my Top 5 list.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The New Year brings challenges that can change many things in your life. You need to be prepared not only to confront them, but also to deal with what happens afterward. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You have what it takes to set your goals quite a bit higher this year. Learn what you need to know and put what you learn into your efforts. A partner offers loving support. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) In true Gemini Twin fashion, you’re conflicted about a decision you know you’ll have to make in this New Year. Best advice: Get the facts before you make any commitment. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A friend offers you an exciting opportunity for the New Year. Although your positive aspects are strong in most respects, caution is advised. Investigate before you invest. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You can make this New Year a roaring success. Start by readjusting your goals to reflect the changes in the economy. Your den-mate offers both wise and loving support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The New Year brings new opportunities for change. But you need to be ready to move from the comfortable status quo to the challenging unknown. It’s up to you.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your most important New Year’s resolution should be to work out problems with a family member in order to avoid continued misunderstandings. Do it soon, for both of your sakes. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The New Year has much to offer the intensely determined Scorpian, who isn’t afraid to take on challenges and stay with them until they surrender their rewards. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You’ll have many fine opportunities in this New Year. But be warned: Reject offers of “help.” You work best when you’re free to be your own creative self. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The New Year offers changes that you might feel you’re not quite ready for. Best advice: Deal with them one step at a time, until you’ve built up your self-confidence. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Travel is a dominant aspect of the New Year. This could mean relocating to another city (or even another country) in connection with your education or your career. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) This New Year brings news about a change you’ve been anticipating. You might have a problem persuading a loved one about your new plans, but he or she will soon go along with them. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for making people feel safe and protected. You would make an excellent youth counselor. © 2022 King Features Synd., Inc.
