ENCINITAS — A pilot program will soon bring new sensors and cameras onto campuses in the San Dieguito Union High School District to help stop vaping on campus. RANCHO The school board reSFNEWS cently voted in a 3-2 decision to launch the pilot program from the company Verkada on a 30-day trial which will bring 10 vapor sensors into bathrooms on two campuses in the district as well as cameras installed outside of the bathroom doors. Verkada already has contracts with both the Coronado and Poway school districts for use of their vape sensors on their campuses. “This is what all of our principals have asked us to do for two years and we haven’t honored that,” School Board President Mo Muir said. “If we let one kid get through this district with an addiction then we failed our kids.” According to the company website, Verkada’s SV11 Environmental Sensor “factors multiple data points from a range of onboard sensors into a 1 to 100 Vape Index that can accurately detect the presence of cigarette smoke, THC, and vape emissions.” Student members of the school board all agree that vaping is an issue on campus and are in support of taking

SANDAG grapples with budget deficits for transit agencies By Steve Puterski

REGION — The region’s two transit agencies are facing budget shortfalls that are impacting operations, according to the San Diego Association of Governments’ board of directors. During its Nov. 19 meeting, the metropolitan planning board battled over funding proposals and voting procedures, while admitting the agency has known for years both the North County Transit District, or NCTD, and San Diego Metropolitan Transit System, or MTS, are dealing with a

projected 40% drop in operating funds from TransNet taxes through 2048. The board also dis-

cussed amending the TransNet ordinance, which was a half-cent tax passed by voters in 2004, to eliminate

some road and highway projects, scale down others and invest more in transit and less on roads, according to the staff presentation. A fund allocating 8.1% of revenues to the transit agencies is forcing the SANDAG board to reconcile budget deficits, said SANDAG Executive Director Hasan Ikhrata. “There is not enough money to do all the things we initially said we wanted to do,” Ikhrata said. “There is not enough money for the 8.1% to get us through 2048. This was presented back in 2016.”

Federal housing discrimination lawsuit widens scope  Filings allege broader Encinitas housing scheme By Jordan P. Ingram & Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — A federal discrimination lawsuit alleging unlawful housing practices in Encinitas has expanded to include more defendants and allegations related to the controversial sales of at least two designated affordable single-family homes to wealthy investors, according to court documents filed last week. The amended complaint, filed on Nov. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, 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, very-low-income applicants in violation of federal and state anti-discrimination fair housing laws. In addition to the City of Encinitas, developer Woodbridge Pacific Group, New Pointe Investment and “shell” companies WPG Desert Rose, Scramark and Santiara, the complaint also names as defendants commercial real estate brokers David Santistevan and Ciara Layne-Trujillo, both of Colliers International, and Finance of America Mortgage lenders Kenneth Reed and Victor Spayde. Escondido-based attorney Anna Hysell, who represents four low-income home buyers as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, told The Coast News her ongoing investigation has shown the City of Encinitas has repeatedly neglected its statutory duty to affirmatively further fair housing, allowing “the unlawful discrimination against some of its most vulnerable residents.” “We have learned a lot through our investigation and what we have found is troubling,” Hysell said. “The city has failed its residents and the protected class citizens. Most disturbing is the city has concocted this vehicle to allow discrimination and fraud within the city’s limits. We are looking forward to getting to the discovery process to get an even clearer picture of what has happened. My clients are just devastated over what we have learned.” Specifically, the amended complaint claims the City of Encinitas devised an affordable housing “regulatory agreement scheme” under California’s density bonus laws allowing “developers to sell affordable homes to their investor friends rather than low-income families.” “The City of Encinitas has not only had full knowledge that these developers have been selling the designated affordable homes to private wealthy investors,

IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY Anna Hysell recently filed an amended complaint on behalf of four low-income plaintiffs alleging the City of Encinitas, developer Woodbridge Pacific Group, mortgage lenders and investors engaged in unlawful and discriminatory practices under the city’s affordable housing program.

blatantly discriminating against selling to these protected classes, but the City themselves worked with the developers to create the vehicle for these developers to do so the way they crafted their affordable housing regulatory agreements,” the complaint reads. In an email response, a city spokesperson issued the following statement in response to the amended complaint: “The Plaintiffs describe a narrative of how they perceive affordable housing laws should be applied. However, their narrative is inconsistent with Density Bonus laws for the State of California. “The complaint fails to state a cause of action against the City of Encinitas and cannot point to any allegation where the City has not complied with state law or affordable housing agreements with the developers. Accordingly, the City believes the complaint is without merit.” When previously asked about its role in the approval of these affordable homes to developers rather than low-income families, the complaint states the city tried to minimize its role and “spin” its investor buyer scheme under the color of state law. After The Coast News first reported the sale of the two affordable homes in September, Julie Taber, the city’s public information officer, defended the city’s approval of the sales

by suggesting the city had no choice but to approve the developer’s decision under state law. “In the case of the Desert Rose project, the Developer chose to sell the unit to a non-income qualified buyer,” Taber wrote. “The City’s only role in approving the sale of the Desert Rose unit, under existing State law, was to verify the sales price met the restrictions of the unit and the proposed rental amount met the requirements of the State mandated low-income requirements.” When The Coast News asked what particular state law the city was referencing, Taber cited California’s Density Bonus Law (Cal. Gov’t Code Sec. 65915). In a September interview with The Coast News, Roy Sapa’u, the city’s director of development services, further claimed that under state law, the developer of the low-income property has three choices — the owner can keep it themselves and rent to a low-income family; sell the unit to a low-income household, or sell to a non-qualified investor who then must rent the unit to a low-income household for a period of at least 55 years. But Hysell, a former federal prosecutor, argues there is no legal requirement “mandating the City to allow a developer to sell an affordable home to a non-qualified investor over qualified low-income house-

holds.” “There is no state law requiring them to sell to investors,” Hysell said. “They chose to do so and there is a big question as to why. The affordable housing program in Encinitas is a mess. The city has mismanaged the program. The statistics speak for themselves and it is disturbing.”

Housing numbers In September, the Biden administration issued a fact sheet on affordable housing in the United States. The statement warned that large investors have started buying more sin-

gle-family homes to convert them into rental properties, driving low-cost home prices upward and out of reach for most first-time home buyers. A Redfin report found that large investors bought a record $48.5 billion worth of homes in the U.S. during the second quarter of 2021, which amounts to roughly one of every six home purchases. In the San Diego metro area, the number of homes purchased by investors was 18.5% of all home sales during the same period, according to Redfin. In Encinitas, the number of investor-owned affordable homes is 73%,

nearly four times higher than the national average for market-rate homes. According to a public records request provided to The Coast News, the city reported 22 single-family affordable homes were built under the density bonus law in the city of Encinitas. Of those homes, just six of them (27%) were sold to low-income or very-low-income households. And making matters worse, these numbers could be even lower. The complaint alleges the city’s list of affordable single-family homes was outdated, missing information and “showed inaccurate records of ownership.” For example, the lawsuit states that county records show companies that own affordable homes in Encinitas have transferred to the investor owners’ family trust and some of the homes “do not have proper affordable housing regulatory agreements in place with the owners of the affordable homes.” “The fact that these affordable single-family homes have mostly been sold to investors is a violation of the public trust,” Hysell said. “The idea that the city has allowed such scarce inventory to be completely dominated by a group of connected investors versus the vulnerable groups they are charged with protecting is unacceptable. That is what this case is about. There is a lack of fair housing opportunities in Encinitas. The city knows it, yet they are not doing their job to fix it and are allowing these investors to take those opportunities away from protected classes.”

Portola & MacKinnon In March 2021, a representative from Woodbridge Pacific Group, a developer responsible for the Desert Rose community, sent an email to the City of Encinitas stating they currently had a list of approximately 80 low-income applicants and two non-qualified investors looking to buy an affordable, single-family TURN TO LAWSUIT ON A6

Letters to the Editor

What happened to The Coast News? Dear Editor, The Coast News has been a feature of my weekend routine for years. I pick it up every Friday morning and look forward to catching up on Encinitas news and commentary. It’s been a local comfort food. But there’s been a change in recent months. Something’s missing: unbiased local news. A slant seems to have developed. There’s now almost a Fox News flavor to the reporting, a persistent right-wing muckraking approach that’s giving the paper a yellowish tint. It feels as if you’re taking your news cues from online gossip sites like Encinitas Watchdog, Encinitas Votes and Nextdoor. If that’s the case, I can understand how you might have the impression that right-leaning views would be appreciated, as those voices seem loudest on those outlets. Please remember, however, that Encinitas is a majority liberal/Democratic city. So, I suspect I’m writing on behalf of the silent liberal majority, who are wondering what’s happened to The Coast News. Take your story on the two affordable homes the city sold to developers, who must rent them out for 55 years to low-income renters, instead of selling each to a single low-income buyer. The story suggested potential impropriety on the part of the city, which sensationalized the narrative. The city’s perspective was presented, but it was buried towards the end of the article, long after the salacious thesis had been presented and probed. You did run a follow-up piece which quietly clarified that the city’s actions had been dictated by state law. But the muck had al-

ready been raked. A sadder example were the two Roberta Walker stories. You took a tragic and complex local event and again suggested impropriety on the part of the city council, neglecting the bigger-picture discussion of the (un)safety of Coast Highway for cyclists and how the accident galvanized much-needed change. And that bigger-picture discussion is the crucial context required to understand the nuances of the situation. In the process, you impugned the character of Mayor Blakespear and Council Member Hinze, two officials with unimpeachable ethics. Worst of all, you suggested, based on the word of a single witness whose trustworthiness can’t be verified, that Roberta herself was at fault due to potentially insufficient bike lights. Sorry, but this all reminded me of the way rape victims have historically been doubted based on their attire at the time of the rape. Most recently, you continued your veiled attack on the city’s Safe Parking Lot program. In the process, you suggested the threats and anti-Semitic comments received by the Leichtag Foundation had perhaps been manufactured or overblown. Did you really mean to suggest that the victims, not the perpetrators, of hate speech were the ones at fault? Again, a reputable local figure, Charlene Seidle, not to mention the Leichtag Foundation itself, was dragged through the mud. Perhaps you’d argue it’s all just “tough” reporting. Unfortunately, there’s a clear slant to that

“toughness,” as it invariably slants against liberal political figures. And a suggestion: If you’re going to feature Jim Desmond’s rightwing commentaries, why don’t you at least provide a counterpoint? (BTW, Mr. Desmond: supporting Trump means you’ve forever lost the moral authority to plead for “civil discourse.”) True, The Coast News isn’t only for Encinitas news, but Encinitas is the home of the paper and much of its reporting. Please, for the sake of good journalism for the majority of Encinitans, bring back the old Coast News. We miss it. Darius Degher Leucadia In their letter in your paper, Concerned Del Mar Citizens stated, “The Del Mar bluff is the last remaining natural bluff in San Diego’s North County.” Really? Have they never visited their neighbors to the north (Solana Beach, Encinitas and Carlsbad)? Gerry Rahill Leucadia Re: “Questions linger over Walker settlement,” Thank you so much for your article on this questionable LARGE settlement!! We had a friend that was paralyzed when struck by a car while riding his bike and got nowhere near this settlement just a year ago in the Bay Area. I suggest we keep an eye out for an anonymous donation to our mayor’s Senate campaign. So done with this stacked council!! A loyal CNG reader. Desire Smith Encinitas

ne thing for sure in the wake of the Thanksgiving week smash-andgrab flash mobs: The bandits who raided high-end stores from Walnut Creek and San Francisco to Beverly Hills and the Fairfax district of Los Angeles were not thinking about Gov. Gavin Newsom when they sledge-hammered their way to tens of thousands of dollars in plunder. But they have presented Newsom with both opportunity and peril, as evidenced by the immediate reaction of California Republican Party operatives who blamed the whole mess on him and his fellow Democrats. “Gavin Newsom and California Democrats have made our state a more dangerous place to live, work and raise a family,” a statement from Orange County’s Republican Party accused while the gang-burglary spree was still underway. The GOP blamed Newsom for endorsing the 2014 Proposition 47, which lowered many felonies to the misdemeanor category, plus penalty-reducing measures like one that makes theft or burglary a felony only when more than $950 worth of material or cash is stolen. But here’s one reality: When somewhere between 30 and 50 cars and 80-odd persons descend on a department store together, as happened in Walnut Creek, a lot more than 80 people knew about it. Why did none of them warn the police or the store itself of the highly organized raid? Was that a failure of parental instruction in morals or a failure of public schools in educating students on personal responsibility? We may learn more as questioning and trials proceed for the few bandits police nabbed. Or not. We already know Newsom, also while the flurry of lawlessness continued across the state, took action by ordering heightened patrols near stores and malls by the California Highway Patrol through the holiday shopping season. “The level of organized retail theft we are seeing is simply unacceptable,” the governor said in a prepared statement. “Businesses and customers should feel safe while doing their holiday shopping.” But they won’t just now, no matter how many CHP officers Newsom stations in shopping mall parking lots. If anything else was also unacceptable, it was the fact Newsom took off on a family vacation

in Mexico just as his office issued his statement, rather than showing up in stores to show his support, the way every governor from Earl Warren to Ronald Reagan to Jerry Brown would have done. So there will likely be stunted sales in stores, which might or might not be made up via online orders. For certain, Newsom’s political opponents will use his quick exit from the state against him when he runs for reelection next year. Republicans might even be effective if they run someone against Newsom who’s more moderate than Larry Elder, the right-wing talk show host who was their de facto recall election standard bearer last summer. Kevin Faulconer (exSan Diego mayor who drew barely 8% of the recall replacement vote), are you listening? Newsom still has plenty of time to recover. In fact, if he can get his ultra-liberal appointed attorney general Rob Bonta to spearhead charging any nabbed store raiders with felonies, not mere misdemeanors, he could end up smelling fine. But if judges appointed by Newsom and Brown insist on misdemeanor trials instead, the softon-crime label may stick and haunt him, especially if he ever runs for president. Like all other events, the store break-ins did not occur in a vacuum: They are tied to Newsom and Prop. 47 just as they can legitimately be linked to the May 31, 2020, nationally televised criminal rampage through Santa Monica and the trendy Melrose Avenue area of Los Angeles, which set an example for the new invasions with very slow police responses and very few thieves caught. For sure, Republicans will try to hang all this on Newsom next year, making crime and public safety as big an issue as they can. Newsom has the power to defuse all this if he gets more active than merely sending out some police patrols. But he’ll never advance his career if he heads off on more family vacations at key moments in the lives and fears of other Californians. Email Thomas Elias at

Pure Water Oceanside plans water recycling by end of ‘21 By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — By the end of December, the city will begin turning recycled water into drinkable water through its new, state-of-the-art water purification facility, the first of its kind in San Diego County. The new water purification system, dubbed Pure Water Oceanside, uses ultra filtration, reverse osmosis and advanced oxidation process to purify recycled wastewater. “It’s inspired by the natural water cycle and is the natural next step for recycling our precious water resource that we currently discharge into the ocean without tapping into its full potential,” said Oceanside Water Utilities Director Cari Dale, who has led the project. The city has been working on Pure Water Oceanside for several years and finally broke ground for construction in February 2020. After nearly two years of construction, the new purification system located at the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility is on track to begin purifying water just before the new year. Pure Water Oceanside is at first expected to provide about 32% -- between 3-5 million gallons -- of drinking water to the city’s water customers each day. The goal is to eventually provide up to 50% of the city’s drinking water supply by 2030. The new water purification system will also recharge the region’s Mission Basin Aquifer, which Dale said will safeguard the area against drought, improve water quality and prevent saltwater intrusion into the aquifer. The new system also helps to diversify the region’s water supply. Currently, the city imports the vast majority of its water supply from the Colorado River 250 miles away and the Sacramento Bay Delta 600 miles away. Pure Water Oceanside is expected to reduce the city’s dependence on im-

ported water by more than 40%. With its start date approaching, Pure Water Oceanside will be the first water purification system of its kind in San Diego County. The city of San Diego is currently working on its own Pure Water project, and an advanced purification program led by the Padre Dam Municipal Water District is also underway in East County. Orange County currently has the closest recycled water purification facility. On Tuesday, Nov. 30, the city of Oceanside got to show off its new water technology to a Danish delegation including officials from the Consulate General of Denmark, water utilities and technology experts during a networking event held at its reclamation facility. “The Oceanside Pure Water plant is world famous and a brilliant example of what California cities are doing to optimize resiliency and to be pre-

pared for growth and future challenges,” said Lea Wermelin, Minister for the Environment of Denmark. Wermelin, Denmark’s

Consul General Morten Siem Lynge and their teams have been traveling throughout the state of California and other

southwest states visiting other sites with advanced water technology before resigning an agreement between Denmark and the

state of California to share water technology and management on Dec.1 in Sacramento. Just a day before that larger agreement was signed, a mirrored agreement between the San Diego Regional Water Tech Alliance and the Water Tech Alliance of Denmark, based out of the Consulate General of Denmark, was also signed at the San Luis Rey facility during the networking event. The San Diego Regional Water Tech Alliance is a local non-profit organization that is working to bring policymakers, utility companies, technology experts and local communities interested in the future of their water supplies together to advance water technology in the region. Now, with the newly signed agreement, both the San Diego and the Denmark alliances can bounce information on water technology back and forth as well. “We could learn a lot from you,” Consul General Morten Siem Lynge said.

Encinitas working to install two rail crossings in Leucadia By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — Encinitas is beginning a lengthy process of installing two at-grade railroad crossings in Leucadia that could still take years to complete. The city has identified two locations for an atgrade crossing, one at Hillcrest Drive and another at Glaucus Street. The locations were decided during a study completed by the city’s planning department in 2019 that consisted of several public workshops, according to the city. “It was almost entirely resident feedback that was acquired over a one year period,” Infrastructure and Sustainability Director Lillian Doherty told

The Coast News. There have been several accidents involving pedestrians in recent years and advocates have been calling for the city to install safe rail crossings for both the safety and convenience of locals. The city has focused much time, effort and money on the Leucadia Streetscape project but some residents have been frustrated that the large-scale project did not include rail crossings for pedestrians. “And actually prioritize it,” Dianna Nunez of the advocacy group NOWLeucadia told The Coast News in June. “One of the components that was missing from (Leucadia) Streetscape was the con-

nection to our community.” This week the city held a train horn demonstration for residents to see how the new crossings would affect the noise in the area. By law trains are required to sound their horn at all atgrade crossings. The city says the noise complaint is the main piece of negative feedback it has received over the proposed crossings but in total it has been a “mixed bag” from residents, according to city public information officer Julie Taber. Following the demonstration this week, the city will formulate a request for proposal to hire a consultant to help with drafting of a design including any other safety features

that may be needed. The draft would then be sent to the California Public Utility Commission which is “responsible for ensuring that California communities and railroad employees are protected from unsafe practices on freight and passenger railroads

by enforcing state and federal rail safety rules, regulations, and inspection efforts,” according to the TURN TO CROSSINGS ON A8

County launches homeless outreach teams  Plan shifts from police to social workers By Tigist Layne

CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT Development Department has told self-employed workers they need to prove their status or return federal pandemic unemployment assistance funds. Courtesy photo

EDD: Self-employed must prove eligibility for benefits By Steve Puterski

REGION — Nearly one million self-employed Californians may be on the hook to pay back their unemployment benefits from the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the California Employment Development Department. The state's employment department recently announced it is requiring self-employed workers to prove their eligibility or return the money with a possible 30% penalty, according to a release. If a claim for pandemic unemployment assistance, or PUA, started in 2020, the documents need to be from the 2019 tax year, and if the benefits claim began in 2021, tax documents need to be from 2020. According to the department, proving work history can be done by uploading a choice of documents through UI Online,

such as a tax return, business license, business receipt or invoice, W-2 form or paystub for those who worked for an employer. The state's Employment Development Department, or EDD, is also continuing to remind pandemic unemployment assistance recipients of the federal requirement to prove self-employment or employment work history. Last year, Congress extended the pandemic benefits and required proof of eligibility due to rampant fraud. In California, the EDD has lost $11 billion due to fraud, with the state blaming pandemic unemployment assistance and the self-employed for much of the fraud.

REGION — The County of San Diego recently announced the creation of homeless outreach teams made up of social workers and other specialists that will specifically address the needs of homeless individuals in North County cities. The initiative was announced in a recent press conference by Supervisors Tara Lawson-Remer and Jim Desmond, along with elected city officials representing different North County cities. As part of the county’s newly adopted Framework to End Homelessness, the new program will encourage collaboration between cities and shift outreach from law enforcement to trained social workers. “Homelessness is particularly challenging in North County,” Remer said at the press conference. “We have eight cities, and each city has a different plan, different staff and different resources. But starting today, for the first time, we are coordinating outreach across city and county lines so we can get people help and housing faster than ever before. It’s one united, collaborative effort to help the 1,500 people in North County without a home.” A highlight of the new program is an emphasis on


shifting homeless outreach away from law enforcement. According to Remer and Desmond, this will be another way of building trust with homeless individuals. “Homeless outreach is human outreach,” Remer said. “Too often we don’t look at people experiencing homelessness as people. That has been made clear by the fact that many unhoused individuals do not actually want to use the array of homeless services that we have available. Simply, there’s a lack of trust between social service providers and the people we want to serve.” The 17-member outreach teams will have 10 social workers to do case management, five specialdisconnected.


in the Loden at Olivenhain neighborhood. As part of the city’s density bonus and affordable housing programs, homes meant for very low-income households may be sold to investors — with written permission from the city — who must keep the units as low-income rentals for 55 years. The City of Encinitas eventually approved Woodbridge’s home sale to non-qualified investor David Santistevan, senior executive vice president of Colliers International, and his one-man business entity, Scramark, LLC. According to the lawsuit, the Portola home was prematurely sold to Santistevan for $175,000 on March 17, roughly two weeks before the April 2 application closing date and for a higher-than-advertised price. Plaintiffs allege Santistevan mortgaged $113,000 of the total before giving Woodbridge a $63,000 bonus. The lawsuit further alleges the single-family affordable home at 1412 MacKinnon Avenue was illegally sold to non-qualified investor Kenneth Reed, a mortgage loan officer at Finance America Mortgage. Reed was approved

for the mortgage by Victor Spayde, the property’s preferred lender, who also works at Finance America Mortgage. Leah Sorenson, a qualified low-income applicant and plaintiff in the lawsuit, reached out to Spayde on Sept. 24, 2020, seeking qualification for the purchase. According to the complaint, Spayde never responded to Sorenson’s request and the home was sold to the non-qualified Reed on October 6, 2020. “Mr. Spayde is charged with discriminating against Plaintiff Sorenson in the qualification process of the

purchase application to enable his co-worker Kenneth Reed, a wealthy male investor to purchase the designated affordable home. Mr. Spayde failed to properly comply with the federal housing and credit laws in the qualification process of the mortgage/lending of 1412 Mackinnon Avenue. Mr. Spayde also violated California’s unfair competition laws,” the complaint reads. Spayde told The Coast News he had no comment. The Coast News left a voicemail message for Reed but received no response. Reed’s office line has been

In addition to Spayde and Reed, Hysell’s ongoing investigation has brought forth more players in this alleged investor-buyer scheme, including Ciara Layne-Trujillo, a senior brokerage vice president at Colliers International, who works with Santistevan at the company’s La Jolla office. According to the company website, Layne-Trujillo “specializes in the sale of land of both single-family and attached developments.” “Santistevan and Layne-Trujillo have been colluding to acquire these affordable homes in Encinitas for personal benefit. They decided to do the same with the acquisition of 1317 Portola Road through their prior business relationship with developer WPG and Desert Rose. They conspired with WPG and Desert Rose to sell them the affordable home for their personal benefit,” the complaint reads. The lawsuit further alleges Layne-Trujillo’s company, Trumen, LLC, purchased a designated low-income home on Urania Avenue that is currently housing her friend Molly Bristol, owner of Reef Processing (or Reef Home

ists from the county Health and Human Services Agency to connect people with various services and two licensed clinical social workers. “We’ve been pushing for this for quite a while, so it’s a step in the right direction,” Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara said. “We’ve started something that will help us work cooperatively with the county and with the other cities, and I think we’ve come to an agreement that homelessness is a regional issue.” McNamara added that the program will also work in collaboration with homeless outreach organizations like Interfaith Community Services, which is headquartered in

Escondido. “Interfaith and other similar organizations were key to this process because those organizations are, from a solution point of view, where the rubber meets the road,” McNamara said. An outreach team will be stationed in Escondido, with another team launching in Oceanside in January 2022. Countywide, a Homeless Crisis Response System report from 2020 by the Regional Task Force on the Homeless found the number of first-time homeless people in the county increased from 2,326 in 2019 to 4,152 in 2020, a 79 percent jump. The previous year saw a 6 percent decrease from 2018.

Loans), who is not believed to qualify as a low-income household. Bristol did not respond to requests for comment and both her personal and business Facebook pages were either deleted or restricted just hours after The Coast News attempted to contact her. The lawsuit expanded its scope to include two more affordable homes purchased by Santistevan in cul-desacs on Sandy Court and Dolphin Circle off Urania Avenue. In September, Taber wrote in a statement about the city’s approval of the Portola Road home that Santistevan “already owns and manages two affordable units in the City and has consistently been in good standing with the City’s compliance monitoring.” But according to the complaint, Santistevan is not in good standing due to currently housing Layne-Trujillo’s mother and sister at his Sandy Court and Dolphin Court properties, respectively. Neither of Layne-Trujillo’s relatives are believed to be low-income renters as required by state and federal law, per the complaint. In comments to The Coast News, Layne-Trujillo confirmed working with Santistevan at the same office but declined to go into further details about

their professional relationship. Layne-Trujillo also said she could not confirm or deny whether her family members were living at the homes. The Coast News observed a shipping container on Nov. 24 and Nov. 29 parked in the driveway of the Sandy Court home. No one answered the door at either residence. San Diego-based attorney Jeffrey Morris, of Devaney Pate Morris & Cameron law firm, is representing the City of Encinitas in the lawsuit. In an email response, Morris told The Coast News, “We are in receipt of the first amended complaint and are in the process of reviewing it. No further comment at this time.” Morris works at the same law firm as Leslie Devaney, who serves as city attorney for the cities of Encinitas, Del Mar and Murrieta. As interim attorney for the City of Encinitas, Devaney’s signature is on several affordable housing agreements, including the Portola and MacKinnon homes, but it remains unclear if her relationship with the city will pose a conflict of interest for the law group. The Coast News left a message with Devaney seeking comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.

US appeals court halts San Diego Unified’s vaccine mandate  Panel takes issue with school district’s pregnancy deferral By Steve Puterski

REGION — A federal appeals court temporarily blocked San Diego Unified School District’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the grounds of a student’s religious beliefs just one day before students were required to receive their first dose. A panel of the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Sunday that the school district’s mandate will be blocked as long as the district offers vaccination deferrals for pregnant students, who were allowed to postpone receiving the vaccine, as reported by City News Service. The court’s injunction will be terminated if the deferral option for pregnant students is removed. The ruling, which only impacts the San Diego Unified School District, stems from a lawsuit filed in October by the family of a 16-year-old Scripps Ranch High School student and her parents, who were identified as John, Jane and Jill

Doe in the complaint. Paul Jonna, an attorney representing the family, said the girl’s pro-life religious beliefs prohibit her from taking the vaccine since they are connected to abortion. All three vaccines either were developed by or tested on electively aborted fetal cells, a practice used in vaccine manufacturing since the 1960s, according to the Science journal. Doe is a devout Christian who does not believe in the use of fetal cells for medical testing or use in any vaccine, Jonna said, who also noted the school district has a religious exemption for staff, but not students. Jonna said while the ruling is favorable, the fight is still not over, and the district has exposed itself to further civil action for potential violations of students’ First Amendment rights. “San Diego Unified School District withdrew the pregnancy deferral as an option,” Jonna said. “At one point in time, they thought that it made sense to give pregnant students a deferral. Now, in response

to this court order, they are taking that away from students so they can try and have this injunction dissolved. They took away a right they previously thought was necessary.” The district's plan requires that all students over age 16 receive their second dose no later than Dec. 20, per wire reports.

Unvaccinated students 16 years or older will be required to take part in remote learning via independent study. The district’s plan allows for medical exemptions to the mandate, but not religious or personal belief exemptions. The district changed its policy on Nov. 29 to re-



steps to remove it from the school. However, they also express some concerns over privacy regarding the placement of cameras. Payton Parker, a senior at Torrey Pines High School, said she conducted an informal survey of students at her school and heard a common refrain. “A lot of them said it would be an invasion of privacy of sorts even though the cameras will be outside of the bathroom doors,” Parker said. “And they said the majority of kids wouldn’t need that kind of supervision and they feel it’s unfair to those kids.” The sensors provided by Verkada will be installed inside bathrooms, a common location for students to vape while at school, and when detected will send a notifi-



confirmed lost to fraud, with another 17% identified as potentially fraudulent. A Jan. 28 report by California State Auditor Elaine Howle found that “EDD did not take substantive action to bolster its fraud protection efforts” to safeguard its unemployment insurance program, “resulting in payments of $11.4 billion for claims that it has since determined may be fraudulent because it cannot verify the claimants’ identities.” Additionally, the department’s “uninformed and disjointed techniques” to prevent fraud placed the agency at “higher risk” for

cation to a faculty member with access to a mobile app that vapors were detected. The faculty would then be able to review footage recorded by cameras connected with the sensors to see which students entered the bathroom at the time the

sensors were tripped. However, student board members also raised concerns that if multiple students enter the bathroom while the sensor is tripped but one or more were not vaping, they could be wrongfully punished.

criminal activity. A second audit report also found that “EDD’s inefficient processes and lack of advanced planning led to significant delays in its payments” and the agency’s “poor planning and ineffective management left it unprepared to assist Californians unemployed by COVID-19 shutdowns.” The federal PUA program was a new benefits program created by the federal government for the first time during the pandemic in 2020 to aid those who were not eligible for traditional state unemployment insurance, such as those who were self-employed or could not work because of COVID-19. According to media reports, about two million

people have already submitted documentation to prove their self-employed status. To expedite payments early in the pandemic, the EDD did not require proof or documentation upfront. Claimants must submit proof of work history even though the program has now expired and even if the claimant returned to work and was no longer collecting benefits before the program expired. Under federal rules, claims filed for benefits on or after January 31, 2021, will have 21 days to submit proof or request an extension. Claims filed before January 31, 2021, will have 90 days to submit proof or request an extension.

“That was definitely a concern that I heard from students and also had myself,” said Amanda Chen, a student board member from Canyon Crest Academy. Board members Julie Bronstein and Katrina Young voted against the

move a deferral during pregnancy, which Jonna said should concern all parents and students. The court can lift the injunction and appears to give some leeway to do so in its ruling. However, Jonna said if the appeals court does lift its order, an immediate appeal with be submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court. Mark Bresee, attorney representing the school district, told The Coast News the school district expects the court’s restraining order to be short-lived with the removal of the pregnancy deferral, and “the primary takeaway is that the court appears poised to uphold the district’s vaccination mandate in the face of numerous lines of attack.” Bresee noted the district modeled its policy on existing state law, including a narrow and objective process for obtaining a medical exemption, which has been upheld in federal court. Additionally, the school district’s mandate was made after full FDA approval of vaccines and is consistent with the district’s focus on its students’

health and safety, Bresee said. “Regarding the pregnancy deferral issue the court addressed in its brief order, the district has already taken action to remove the option to request a deferral during pregnancy, and is in the process of notifying the court, so we expect the injunction to be terminated soon,” Bresee said. “No pregnancy deferral requests had been received, so the action did not impact any students, and at any rate, the plaintiff is not seeking a deferral but is seeking to be exempted from the mandate.” Jonna said one of the judges’ opinions stated his client’s position of religious exemption requires strict scrutiny from the court, the most demanding test under constitutional law. “I think they should be doing right now … is let’s add religious exemptions,” Jonna said. “Let’s keep all the other protections, but let’s protect our religious students, too. Instead, they are taking away a protection they thought was necessary and continue to alienate people with religious beliefs.”

pilot program expressing a desire to first launch the pilot without the use of cameras. Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward said it would not make sense for the district to use the sensors without the use of cameras. “Admin teams cannot run to the restroom every time the sensors go off. And they cannot send emails to everyone to figure out who was in the bathroom,” James-Ward said. “We have campuses with 2600 kids. And for four people running around looking to see when the vapor sensor went off and who was in the restroom, that’s not work that they can feasibly do.” The school district will identify a high school and middle school to launch the program before bringing the program back to the board for full approval with any necessary changes or alterations.

Woman, 24, gets two years in death of Carlsbad cyclist By City News Service

OCEANSIDE — A woman who fatally struck a bicyclist in Oceanside then fled the scene was sentenced this week to two years in state prison. Bailey Tennery, 24, pleaded guilty last month to a misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter count and a felony count of hitand-run causing death for fatally striking 27-year-old Carlsbad resident Jackson Williams. Williams was struck July 15 while riding on Oceanside Boulevard near Interstate 5 and died at the scene. Witnesses reported seeing a dark-colored vehicle fleeing eastbound on Oceanside Boulevard.

of funding, there is a 7030 split, which states 70% will be spent on congestion relief and 30% for maintenance projects. However, if the board opts to reverse course and change the ordinance, much more money will pour into transit. Also, the board is set to vote on the 2021 Regional Plan, otherwise known as the 5 Big Moves, on Dec. 10. The cost for the plan is $265 billion, although many on the board are calling into question a proposed mileage tax, two half-cent sales tax increases in 2022 and 2024, along with making transit free for all in 2030 — all of which would reportedly trim an estimated $18 billion to $24 billion from the plan’s funding. All of this comes on top of NCTD’s and MTS’ budget shortfalls. NCTD Board Chair Tony Kranz also raised concerns with the amendments, saying the agency just bought two new locomotives and SANDAG has committed to buying five new train sets. Also, cuts to service would not be in alignment with NCTD’s short- and long-term plans. “Given that our entire plan is based around transit … I think this is a huge priority that we find a way to fund our transit agencies' operating budgets,” Solana Beach Mayor Leesa Heebner said. “What is the point of flexible fleets without transit?” Sharon Cooney, chief executive officer of MTS, said the board must take a more comprehensive look at the proposals before acting. Cooney said SANDAG will be increasing expenditures in at least one pot for the bicycle plan and it will “delete the funding for every other program within the

ENCINITAS — In “Petunia,” a play written by San Dieguito Academy sophomore Ana Cabrera, a bespeckled flower with roots on both sides of the Mexico and United States border struggles to find her place in the world. It’s a story that is very personal to Cabrera. “It’s the story of a flower that has spent most of her life focusing on one half of her heritage so much that when she is reminded that she pertains to another culture she has a really hard time finding her identity and she doesn’t know what to make of it,” Cabrera told The Coast News. Coming from a mixed background herself — Cabrera’s father is from Puerto Rico and her mother is White — Cabrera used the opportunity of writing Petunia to express some of the feelings and emotions she has felt going to a predominantly white school. “My mixed heritage has taught me a lot about identity growing,” Cabera said. “I’m White-presenting so I blend in at my school. But it’s difficult sometimes because I’m so proud that I speak Spanish and have Puerto Rican heritage and I want that to come through to others.” However, Cabrera said it goes both ways. For example, when she has visited Puerto Rico, there is a language barrier that can

make fitting in difficult as well. “And that’s kind of how Petunia struggles throughout the play too,” Cabrera said. From nearly 300 submissions, Petunia was recently chosen as one of four winners of the Playwright Project’s California Young Playwrights Contest for students age 18 and under.

The play will be featured as part of the 37th annual festival, Plays by Young Writers. “Petunia” is one of three plays that will receive a full professional production. Playwrights Project’s Executive Director Cecelia Kouma says the opportunity for both the playwrights and the audiences is a special one.

“Plays by Young Writers offers young playwrights a rewarding opportunity to work alongside professional theatre artists to bring their writing to life in creative ways,” Kouma said. “These young writers have words of wisdom for all of us, regardless of our age. It is an honor to hear their insights and amplify the voices of these inspiring young leaders.” “Petunia” was Cabrera’s third submission to the Playwrights Project since she first began writing plays in fifth grade. She was previously named as a semi-finalist for her work. The festival begins on January 22 of next year and runs through February 13 consisting of both in-person and online screenings of the taped performances. Cabrera has enjoyed the revision process of her play for the performance just as much as writing. “In terms of length, I’ve had to change my play a lot which I think was a great thing for me because whenever you publish something it has to meet the time constraints,” Cabrera said. “That has been great because it’s taught me a lot about the revision process. When audiences are finally able to view her play in full next year, Cabrera hopes they walk away knowing there is more to your personal identity than what those around you perceive. “At the same time, if you have insecurities surrounding how you present yourself ethnically or your social identity, those insecurities are valid too. I really wanted to capture the two sides of the story in my play because it’s very complex,” Cabrera said.

rather than deleting bus, rapid transit or trolley service in order to accommodate micro-mobility?” The board also debated about activating the weighted voting system, which gives a proportional vote to each city based on population. San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones criticized the system, saying it alienates voters and cities by taking away those voices and allowing just three municipalities to control the board. Jack Shu, a councilman in Lemon Grove, said the weighted vote is fair and is needed to find ways to increase funding. “By giving small cities an equal voice just wouldn’t be a democratic process,” Shu told the board. “We have to look at other ways to fund. We saw this coming. We knew years ago TransNet wasn’t performing.” The city’s goal is to shave time off the timeline for completion when able but they are relying heavily on other agencies which will have their own timelines for review. “It is entirely dependent on their willingness to work with us, get their comments back to us, so it is a little bit of a challenge,” Doherty said.

Knob Hill Christmas light display returns in San Marcos By Tigist Layne

SAN MARCOS — The famous “Christmas on Knob Hill” light display has returned, to the excitement of San Marcos residents. Bill Gilfillen, the display’s creator and owner of the home, took a break from the beloved tradition in 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis. For more than 30 years, Gilfillen, an 83-year-old retired Navy flight engineer, and his family have hosted Christmas on Knob Hill at their home at 1639 Knob Hill Road. Until Dec. 30, passersby can gather to see more than 100,000 holiday lights cover the Gilfillen residence, along with displays of Santas, reindeer, snowmen, sleighs, Disney characters, giant candy canes and more. One of his new decorations this year is a printed sign proudly displayed up front that outlines some of the Gilfillens’ values. It reads: “In this house, we believe Black lives matter. Women’s rights = human rights. No human is illegal. Embrace the science. Love

is Love.” Gilfillen said it took 3 months to get this year’s display set up with lights and displays that he’s been collecting for 30 years. “The reason I started doing it was because when I was young, growing up, the only thing that we had at Christmas time was going around and looking at the lights because I come from a very poor family,” Gilfillen said. “It was just plastic figurines and so forth at first, but it quickly grew to quite an elaborate display, and now we have people from all over San Diego, Arizona and Los Angeles that come to see the display every year.” On Monday night, Gilfillen, wearing his mask, happily walked outside to greet the visitors, many of whom came from different cities and states. In previous years, families could also enjoy a visit from Santa every night for about a week before Christmas. This year, Gilfillen tells the kids that come by that Santa won’t be at the house this year, but he will be at each of their houses on the

night of Christmas Eve. “I just enjoy doing it. I love to make people happy. I just love people in general, like I enjoy interacting with people and it gives me a lot of pleasure to just see people when they walk up to the display to see their eyes light up and smiles come on their faces,” Gilfillen said. Last year, the Gilfillen family made the difficult decision to cancel the display for their safety and for the safety of visitors. The family issued a statement back in 2020, which was also written on a white board outside of their home: “To all our friends who visit Christmas on Knob Hill: For the first time in over 30 years, due to the virus and our concern for our families’ and friends’ well-being, we will not have a display this year. But we promise 2021 will be bigger and brighter.” Gilfillen delivered on his promise this year of a bigger and brighter display. The only thing they ask is that visitors wear their masks while enjoying the lights.

Holiday H appenings YMCA brings holiday joy to military families

Tangled Up in Christmas

By Samantha Nelson

CAMP PENDLETON — The holiday season is a joyous time, yet also a time of financial burden for many families, particularly young, active-duty military families who are often barely scraping by. To make sure everyone has the most wonderful time of the year, the Armed Services YMCA with the help of civilian donations provides hundreds of military families and thousands of children with toys, bikes, gift cards and more each year. Executive Director Samantha Holt said the base’s branch of the Armed Services YMCA will serve more than 600 families alone this year through its Santa’s Workshop event on Dec. 14 and 15. YMCA volunteers and staff will set up a large, 40by-40 foot tent and stock shelves with toys, bikes and other gifts for children at the YMCA’s site on base. The toys are sorted by gender and age as well as by day to keep the selection fair and the shelves full for both days of the event. Families come in and “shop” for three to four gifts per child just like they would in a store, but at no cost. Once the two workshop days are over, whatever toys are left will be packaged up and sent to the Marine Corps base in Twentynine Palms, where there is a smaller number of families living there. Holt said most of the toys or money donated to buy toys and gift cards come from civilian “Many of them have been donating for years, which is absolutely amazing,” Holt said. Some military families can also sign up for the YMCA’s Secret Santa program. Participating families write a wishlist of gifts, and then are “adopted” by a civilian family who buys those gifts for them. These holiday programs are only two of several different programs that the Armed Services YMCA runs throughout the year to help young, military families. The YMCA also provides a diaper and food distribution program, emer-

gency financial support, childcare, afterschool programs, military ball gown giveaways and scholarships. Holt said these programs aim to strengthen the military family as a whole by helping these young families who don’t always have the support system they need when they first move here. “Picture this: you’re a young person who joined the military, sometimes you’re married and you have children and you come in from another part of the states to Southern California, which is expensive, and you’re away from family,” Holt said. “Childcare is expensive and hard to come by, so a lot of times our families have to live on one income which gets tight, which is part of the reason why we started our diaper and food distribution because our families were coming short between paychecks and needed extra support.” Holt said one of the biggest struggles for military families is being away from their own families, which is why the Armed Services YMCA strives to build a support system through the people it serves on base. Oceanside Councilmember Chris Rodriguez recalled how the Armed Services YMCA helped him and his young family when they moved to base in 2002. “I had heard about them through Command,” Rodriguez said. “For my

wife they provided a ball gown, bunk beds for my kids, and a whole tree full of presents that we never would have been able to afford. They really blessed us.” Rodriguez said he and many other young families struggled when they first moved to base. “We had nothing, we had to build from scratch,” he said. “We were living paycheck to paycheck.” Holt also remembers moving to base as a young military spouse and struggling with being alone and without resources. “I know what it’s like to come here and be on your own, and with lower rankings the pay is obviously lower, so I understand what it’s like and what our families go through,” Holt said. “It’s nice to be able to connect those families with resources who can help them to be successful as a military family.” While similar in its core values, the Armed Services YMCA is different from the main YMCA organization specifically in its focus on aiding young military families by supplementing needs like childcare and extra support. There are several branches of its kind across the United States on or near military bases, including

three in Southern California with the one on Camp Pendleton, another in San Diego and a third in Twentynine Palms. The Armed Services YMCA at Camp Pendleton is accepting money, gift card and toy donations for its holiday program until Dec. 10. Those who wish to donate can contact the office by calling 760-3854921.

New experience for refugee kids: Whacking a pickleball sports talk jay paris


o connect with children from the other side of the world, all John Riedy did was walk to his car. “It was a total random meeting,” he said. Riedy, like countless other pickleball enthusiasts at Encinitas’ Bobby Riggs Racket & Paddle, often parks next door at the Venture Church. It was there that Riedy came across Melissa Drake and her Seeds of Hope program. It consists of refugee children from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with Drake serving as their schoolteacher. But all work and no play makes anyone long for recreation. That’s certainly true with kids and teenagers, and hey, you guys ever try pickleball? The answer was no, and that was quickly changed thanks to the kindness of Riggs members. Steve Dawson, the club owner, set aside three courts once a week for the youngsters to use. Justin Levine bought a net so those fresh to the sport could practice in between classes at the church. Others contributed


Wyverne Flatt of Canajoharie, New York, is willing to go to the mat for his 100-pound emotional support pig, Ellie, News10-TV reported. But the village doesn’t believe Ellie should be allowed to live with Flatt, who has been fighting her exile for two years. “I have gotten shot records from the vet, notes from the doctor, and all the paperwork,” Flatt said. “I’ve done everything they’ve asked me to do, and we just keep going to court.” Flatt said after a divorce and losing family members, he is comforted by the pig: Ellie “jumps right up on the couch to watch TV, and she does all this stuff. Her going away from me would be just as detrimental for her as it would be for me.” [News10, 11/17/2021] WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME

When they contacted police, officers advised them to cancel the event, which they did. “After everything we have done to support the local community in the nearly two years we have been here, we now have to seriously consider ... whether or not we feel safe enough to stay here at the pub,” the Eccleses wrote. “I hope you’re happy with what you have done.” [Daily Mail, 11/5/2021]

It goes both ways, and we’re not talking about the ball traversing the court. “It’s a real blessing for both parties,” said Drake, an Encinitas resident. “The kids and the volunteers.” Rosa, one of the Seeds of Hope students, is all in with this sport. “Something that pickleball has taught me is that it is OK to make mistakes,” she said. “Just play and have as much fun as possible.” Drake is an ace in her own right, providing lessons and guidance to students who were often left behind in traditional schools. She supplies the love, and extra instruction, that will help her charges morph from being refugees into strong community members. “Most of them have been in the country about three to five years,” she said. “We start them in small home-school pods and provide them education and opportunities.” With pickleball giving them a chance to attempt something that they had no idea about. “It’s gives them the opportunity to experience something new,” Drake said. “And they are doing it in a different culture and in a different environment.” Martha added: “I get to challenge myself. Even if it is hard sometimes.” What’s difficult is finding a frown on the court. If everyone in youth sports were as giddy as this bunch,

The victim punched Gruber in the face, and he responded by shooting him twice. Gruber posted $50,000 bond and was released. [The Sun News, 11/9/2021]

no youngster would be tethered to a video game. But in addition to embracing pickleball, the players are absorbing life lessons as well. “They are learning sportsmanship and we’re teaching them to be good sports,” Riedy said. “How you touch paddles with your opponent after you just played them in a match and that you always say, ‘Good game.’ It is really cool that they are getting that message.” What’s clear is these youngsters don’t have a lot. What’s clear, as well, is that they are appreciative. “These kids are wearing hand-me-downs and they have never done any of this,” Riedy said. “And to just see them completely happy, smiling and dancing on the court is special. “We complain about things in our life, but they seem a little less meaningful when you see these kids. They went through so much just to get to this country and still they keep such a positive attitude.” There’s a rule in pickleball that you stay out of the kitchen, meaning one’s getting too close to the net. We’re just thankful that Riedy didn’t avoid the church parking lot, the asphalt one that is amazingly blossoming with seeds of hope. Contact Jay Paris at and follow him @jparis_sports.

El Camino High football honored for sportsmanship By City News Service

REGION — El Camino High School in Oceanside was one of five county high school football teams to be honored for exhibiting the highest level of sportsmanship during the 2021 season, two sports organizations announced Nov. 26. In addition to the Wildcats, teams from Borrego Springs, Mira Mesa, Monte Vista and Sweetwater high schools received the inaugural CIF/SDCFOA Sportsmanship Awards from the San Diego Section of the California Interscholastic Federation and San Diego County Football Officials Association. Each school will receive $1,000 for its athletic department, a trophy and a banner to display on school grounds. The awards went to teams whose “players, coaches and fans best exhibited the principles of good sportsmanship — including fairness, civility, honesty, unselfishness, respect and responsibility — as voted on by game officials, CIF commissioners and conference presidents,” said Kevin Haws, board president of the officials’ association.

Dons playing for another shot at state championship By Bill Slane

CARMEL VALLEY — Cathedral Catholic has been here before. In 2018, the Dons football team earned a bid to the CIF Division 1-AA Southern California Regional bowl game, holding off the Narbonne Gauchos with a late interception, 2421. Cathedral Catholic ultimately fell to the Folsom Bulldogs in overtime in the Division 1-AA state championship that season. This Friday, the Dons return to the SoCal Regional final, this time against the Orange Lutheran Lancers, with hopes of taking home a state title. “We’re excited. We know they’re going to be a heck of a football team,” Longtime Dons head coach Sean Doyle said. “They man up across the board and put seven or eight guys in the box and they’ll definitely do that against us to try and stop the run.” But that will be easier said than done to stop the Dons’ rushing attack. The offense is led by senior Lucky Sutton, the most recent recipient of KUSI’s Prep Pigskin Report Silver Pigskin award for the most

outstanding player in the county. Sutton has amassed nearly 2,000 yards on the ground in 12 games this season, including a 275yard performance against the Carlsbad Lancers in the San Diego Section Open Division Championship last month. “Everybody asks me if he is the best running back

we’ve ever had. I don’t answer those questions but I’ll tell you he is as good as any running back we’ve had here, which is pretty dang good,” Doyle said. “We’ve had a good handful of great ones and Lucky rates right there with those guys.” Through the air, the Dons are led by senior quarterback Charlie Mirer, who Doyle says has become more

and more comfortable with the team’s offensive system as the year has gone on. “He has matured not just physically but mentally,” Doyle said. “He knows that you just take what they give you.” In the truncated season last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mirer played in four of the five games for the Dons. But in

those games, Cathedral jumped out to such large leads he only threw the ball a handful of times. “At the beginning of the year he was still growing into our offense and what we do. He has done a tremendous job and the CIF championship game is the perfect example of that,” Doyle said. In the run-heavy of-

fense, Mirer was efficient when given the chance to throw, going 5-for-7 for 118 yards and two passing touchdowns in the 48-19 victory over Carlsbad. Four of those completions went to senior wide receiver Rex Haynes, who led the team’s receivers with six touchdowns this year. Haynes has led the team in receiving despite a nagging hamstring injury all season. Doyle said Haynes was fully healthy for the first time this year against Carlsbad and is ready to play Friday night. The Dons match up with Orange Lutheran this Friday night at Orange Coast College at 7:30 p.m. Should the Dons move past Orange Lutheran, they will advance to the Division 1-AA state championship game just as they did in 2018. They would face the winner of the Northern California bowl game, the De La Salle Spartans or the team that defeated Cathedral in the state championship in 2018, the Folsom Bulldogs. If the Dons face De La Salle, it would be a rematch. The host Spartans defeated Cathedral Catholic in September, 49-21, in Concord.

• No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1) vs. No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs (12-0) • 1 p.m., CBS • Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia • Line: Georgia -6.5 • Total 50 • Pick: Georgia Notes: You might have to go back to the days of dial-up internet to find the last time Alabama was an underdog … Georgia is going for its first 13-0 record in school history … The Bulldogs have given up an unbelievable 6.9 points per game, and haven’t allowed more than 17 points in a game … Both teams are led by California QBs and freshman Bryce Young is a Heisman trophy favorite … On offense, Georgia has averaged 40.7 points per game this season, while Alabama has averaged 42.6 … SEC Commissoner Greg Sankey would love to see Alabama win and get two SEC teams in the College Football Playoff … Georgia returns to Atlanta for the second straight week, while Alabama has been jittery on the road — the Tide had to go 97 yards with no timeouts to send last week’s Auburn game into overtime.

• No. 16 Houston Cougars (11-1) vs. No. 3 Cincinnati Bearcats (12-0) • 1 p.m., ABC • Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio • Line: Cincinnati -10.5

• Total 54 • Pick: Houston Notes: Win and you’re in. That is the mantra around Cincinnati this week, as the Bearcats try to become the first team from outside the power conferences to make the College Football Playoff … Houston has reeled off 12 straight wins after losing its opening game to Texas Tech … Cincinnati is one of only two teams to finish the regular season unbeaten, joining 12-0 Georgia … The Cougars’ speed is dangerous and the betting line is over-inflated. Cincy could win but it won’t cover the point spread. Big Ten • No. 15 Iowa Hawkeyes (10-2) vs. No. 2 Michigan Wolverines (11-1) • 5 p.m., Fox • Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, Indiana • Line: Michigan -10.5 • Total: 43.5 • Pick: Michigan

has the Wolverines lined up for a College Football Playoff appearance with a win … Michigan has too much offense, and Iowa’s has been anemic … Michigan is smelling victory and knows more than this game is at stake. This could get ugly quick. Mountain West • Utah State Aggies (93) vs. No. 19 San Diego State Aztecs (11-1) • Noon, Fox • Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson • Line: SDSU -6 • Total: 50.5 • Pick: SDSU Notes: The Aztecs are playing in the Mountain West championship game for the first time since they won back-to-back titles in 2015-16, their only two appearances in the game … This is likely SDSU’s last “home” game in Carson, as the school expects to inaugurate its new football stadium in 2022 … Utah State lost to Fresno State in the first MWC championship game in 2013 … This year, the Aggies are one of the most improved programs in the conference under second-year coach Blake Anderson ... San Diego State DL Cameron Thomas (Carsbad High) and P/PK Matt Araiza (Rancho Bernando High) were named Mountain West defensive player of the year and special teams player of the year, respectively.

Notes: This is the Big Ten championship game that no one predicted, or even imagined, but both teams earned their way with solid football down the stretch … Michigan is flying high after its epic win over rival Ohio State last Saturday, while Iowa back-doored its way in with Wisconsin’s loss to Minnesota and Nebraska’s meltdown Saturday to the Hawkeyes in Lincoln … Michigan has won 42 Big Ten football titles but none since Let the games begin 2004 … Coach Jim Har- … and see you on the radio baugh finally has beaten the Saturday 9 a.m. on AM 1090, evil empire (Buckeyes) and The Mightier 1090.

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.

Library mural unveiled this month By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — Local artist Kevin Anderson was mostly finished with his newest mural on Tuesday morning at the Encinitas Library. But he didn’t seem ready to move on from the project. Anderson began the mural at the beginning of November after the Friends of the Encinitas Library commissioned the work. Both the city’s Arts Commission and the Encinitas City Council approved the group's project. According to Anderson, the mural depicts crashing waves on the beach inspired by his personal experience at Moonlight Beach. “That was one of the selling points for the Commission of the Arts, it wasn’t something of buildings or streets in Encinitas — it wasn’t a location," said Jayne Henn, the city's head librarian. "They wanted the feeling of this beauty that surrounds us." Anderson worked daily on the mural for roughly two-and-a-half weeks and his time at the site included plenty of interactions with members of the community. “It’s been great being here and talking to people and answering their questions and getting to know

them,” Anderson said. The local artist even allowed some children, who were watching him paint, to add some of their own brush strokes to the mural. Anderson often spends a lot of time before a mural project getting to know the surrounding area and talking with locals to get a better feel for what he is painting. “Just talking with people allows you to have a more open mind and then

things really can open up to you,” Anderson said. “That’s probably where I got most of my success was just being outside with my easel and talking with people.” Being well known in North County for his local landscape art, the library and the Friends of Encinitas Library knew Anderson was their first call when planning for the mural. The library provided Anderson with a sample photo of their vision for the

project. The artist then created the piece “Ocean Blue,” which he used as the reference for the larger work. “I stayed fairly close to it but there are subtle changes. Some color changes and things like that,” Anderson said. Anderson has been painting landscapes since his youth and takes the most pleasure in painting ocean scenes, such as the one now on display at the city library. Anderson grew up in Solana Beach and attended San Dieguito Union High School, before it changed its name to San Dieguito Academy, and spent much of his time at the beach and surfing. During that time, he also developed a passion for painting that has lasted decades. “I still love it and I think that same motivation for it is still there and I hope it does for a long time,” Anderson said. After spending more time speaking with those walking by Tuesday morning to talk about the work and the finishing touches, Anderson finally decided it was time to sign and walk away from the piece. The mural will be officially unveiled on Dec. 11 at Art Night Encinitas.

fight a special battle this time of year. I have a love-hate relationship with catalogs. I always succumb and order something, so by November, my mailbox begins to runneth over. Stacks of them begin to pile up around the house. It’s a habit I apparently picked up from my mother, who never threw away a catalog until she had time to scour it thoroughly. I do love to curl up with my assortment, ranging from the Washington National Gallery of Art to Oriental Trader with its bags of chatchkes. You just never know when you might stumble across the perfect gift. The downside is I always find too many things I’d like for myself. It takes true self-discipline to resist ordering them all and filling my own stocking. Somehow, the vendors have learned that before New Year’s Eve, I have a daughter’s birthday, three stockings to fill and trinkets to find for St. Nicholas Day shoes. With that semi-frantic look in my eyes, I am their target audience. Trouble is, everything always looks adorable in the catalog. That leather-handled tote bag is so handsome, but doesn’t your mom already have 10 reusable grocery bags? And do you know you can get Van Gogh’s “Starry, Starry Night” on an umbrella? I have to remind myself that when you are racing around in the rain, the poignancy of the artwork is pretty much lost. Another catalog has the cutest holiday decorations. How do I know they are the cutest? Because as soon as my daughter sees TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B5

water spot chris ahrens it’s warm outside. Yet, dipping a single toe into the ocean proves that winter is on its way. For most surfers that

means a full wetsuit. I say most because there are a few among us who relish the cold and surf in wetsuits vests, or nothing more than trunks and raw skin throughout the year. Some of the aforementioned hearty souls have little bodily insulation against the cold, stay out for hours and appear healthy. While I’m not sure how everyone battles the elements, I do know there are ways to prepare ourselves against the sting of the coming seasonal shift. While you’ll never see me in sub-60-degree water without a wetsuit, I do wear as little rubber as possible in the time of the big chill. I first became aware of “The Iceman,” Wim Hof, through friend and fellow surfer, Cameron Trickey. Trickey, who is probably the most ruggedly fit person I know, alternately plunges himself into ice baths and nearly scorching saunas several days a week, and can be seen even in mid-February surfing without a wetsuit.

OMWD votes to offset hikes with refunds By Staff

ENCINITAS — Olivenhain Municipal Water District’s Board of Directors unanimously voted at its Nov. 17 meeting to refund $1.62 million to customers to reduce the impact of future water rate increases. The refund resulted from lawsuits filed by San Diego County Water Authority in 2010 and 2018, challenging the legality of Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s water rates and charges and seeking payment for legal damages and interest. “Court rulings have not only returned more than $3.6 million to OMWD that we have been able to give back to our customers, but they also help to prevent future overcharges to our region,” said OMWD Board Treasurer Christy Guerin. “These refunds will allow us to minimize costs to our customers over the next six years.” SDCWA won several critical issues in cases covering 2011 to 2014, and was deemed the prevailing party and awarded the payment of legal fees and charges in addition to damages and interest payments from Metropolitan. In March, SDCWA issued OMWD a check for $2 million after receiving reimbursement from Metropolitan for 2011-14 overcharges, which OMWD’s board voted in April to refund to customers. OMWD received a $1.622 million refund check last month for overcharges in 2015-17. To address increasing costs, OMWD’s 2019 Water Cost of Service Study Report proposed gradual annual increases to water rates through mid-2024. OMWD customers can anticipate a credit on their monthly bills, reducing the impact of water rates through 2027. OMWD rates are currently in the lower half among San Diego County water agencies.

Seeing the Coachella Valley from above


erhaps the most exciting moments of a hot air balloon ride are the few seconds after the support crew releases the tether lines and the ground begins to fall away. Liftoff can be almost imperceptible, as it was on a recent November Saturday. We were about 50 feet off the ground before I peered over the side of the thick wicker passenger basket and realized we were aloft. Our pilot, Justin, took eight passengers into the early morning sky and over the emerald-green driving range at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage. The manicured landscape dropped further and further away, giving us a well-defined sense of the topography of the Coachella Valley. The Santa Rosa and San Jacinto mountains,

hit the road e’louise ondash glowing gold with the morning sun, nearly surrounded us, creating an elliptical-shaped valley. Like a picture postcard, a full moon, on its way to the darker half of the earth, hung above the mountains, allowing us to see the sun rise and the moon set. Our flight alternated between total quiet and the noise created by the blast of the fiery burner that kept us aloft. We watched the scene below; an unnaturally verdant golf course eventually became the gray roofs of large homes, swimming pools and subdivision roads, then a sandy desert dotted

with creosote bushes. We grazed several of the bushes as we descended, and while still moving forward, came to a bumpy stop. In the French tradition (the first balloon pilots were French), Justin brought out the champagne, sparkling cider and orange juice, and we toasted our adventure. Our balloon was one of 28 participating in the 7th Annual Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival & Food Truck Fiesta, held the weekend before Thanksgiving. Balloon-themed activities were staged throughout the weekend at the Westin resort, at Agua Caliente Casinos (both event sponsors), and in Cathedral City. Most of the activities are family-oriented and free. In 2019, “more than 10,000 people attended the weekend festival,” said Cindy Wilkinson, who with her husband, Steve, found-

ed the festival eight years ago. (The festival was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.) This year’s event also marks the 40th year that the Wilkinsons have operated their hot air balloon company, Fantasy Balloon Flights. “Steve is the balloonmeister” Cindy said, “the person who maintains contact with the Federal Aviation Administration during the festival.” The festival used to be held in February over Presidents Day weekend, and Cindy remembered two occasions when balloon ascensions were put on hold. “Twice, President Obama flew into the valley and that means we can’t fly.” My husband and I were headquartered for the weekend at the family-friendly Westin Mission Hills, in the final stages of a $15 million

renovation, including a $1.3 million water slide expected to be completed by late December. The Kids’ Club opens this week. Rooms are spacious, and a new spa offers multiple services and treatments. The grounds are pedestrian- and dog-friendly, but electric carts are available if needed. Quite fun is the resort’s new duckpin bowling alley, the “pickle ball of bowling.” Same concept as bowling but with smaller pins (suspended on strings) and wooden balls (no holes). After playing, I concluded that it takes a bit more finesse than conventional bowling, but with the small balls, the game is kid-friendly. The origin of duckpins is murky, but it probably began in the 1890s. For more commentary and photos, visit

ergy as Director Of Revenue, Grid Edge Control. Married to Donna for 31 years, they raised three children together. Greg had a passion for life, a big warm smile, a boisterous laugh, and heart of gold. He was a consummate problem solver, deep thinker, master orator, and self-made success. Greg was driven to make a difference in all the lives of the people he met and it was hard not to learn something from him. Affectionately, we called him “Pops-apedia” because he had an amazing memory and could easily recall facts. He was generous with his time, lending himself to coaching his kids and volunteering in the community. Greg’s knowledge of baseball was truly amazing and he was passionate about

the life lessons it taught. Greg was a loving husband and proud father. He spent his time nurturing his children and teaching them the skills to be successful at school, sports, work, and life; never missing a single game, milestone, or accomplishment. Greg and Donna had a wonderful marriage filled with laughter and love, spending each day together they were true soulmates. Greg had many interests and passions including fishing, golfing, walks on the beach, hiking, bourbon, and thoroughbred horse racing. He is survived by his children, Marc, Karen (Kenny) and Eric, his wife Donna, his mother Rachel, sister Libby (Larry) and brother Michael (SanDee). Celebration of life; Dec. 20, 4:15-5:45 at the Encinitas Community Center.

“LEST WE FORGET” Eighty years ago, on December 7th, 1941, the Japanese attacked American forces at Pearl Harbor awakening a sleeping giant by killing over 2,400 Americans, wounding 1,282, while destroying 188 aircraft and sinking four Navy battleships. President Franklin D. Roosevelt described December 7, 1941, as a “date which will live in infamy.” We owe these men and women, many still teenagers at the time, our eternal gratitude and we honor them today and every day for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans! The remaining few survivors are now in their late 90s. May every generation remember the battles fought on that day, remember the heroes, and remember all those who were lost that day.

Nothing adds to holiday stress like finding they only have one item left, in magenta, in a size 2. I promise local merchants that I will make at least one on-foot shopping trip, but it is tough to say no to those catalog favorites, like collegiate mascot neck pillows, or those ill-fitting holiday muumuus and faux fur-lined, polyester pseudo-suede boots.

Finding gratitude this holiday season


his holiday season we hope you are able to pause and find gratefulness in the simple things. Look at your life and observe all of the things that you love. The people, places, experiences, and even your furry friends. Each day there are moments of love expressed through affection, understanding, or a shared experience. Look for moments of humor and times where you have found a smile or laughter in difficult or frustrating situations. Sometimes humor is the only thing that makes sense when everything else seems to be challenging. Look for moments of joy. Feeling the sunshine on your face, being warmed by your cup of coffee, an embrace from your child, a hand from your partner, or a moment of pause after finishing a project. With love, laughter, and joy comes greater con-

intentional living

angie & marc rosenberg nection. The experience of connecting is to feel linked to someone or something else in life. Research has found that through deep and fulfilling connections we can move through our life with greater mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. This holiday season, you don’t have to look very far to find gratitude and you may be surprised by the goodness that exists. NTENTION OF THE MONTH: Gratitude

REGION — Using a new artificial intelligence identifying method, researchers at UC San Diego and their collaborators have taken what may turn out to be a significant leap forward in the understanding of human cells, according to a report published Nov. 24. The pilot study — which combines microscopy, biochemistry techniques and artificial intelligence in a technique known as Multi-Scale Integrated Cell — revealed around 70 components contained within a human kidney cell line, half of which had never been seen before. “If you imagine a cell, you probably picture the colorful diagram in your cell biology textbook, with mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and nucleus. But is that the whole story? Definitely not,” said Trey Ideker, a professor at UCSD’s School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center. “Scientists have long realized there’s more that we don’t know than we know, but now we finally have a way to look deeper.” The results were described in a recent issue of Nature. In one example, the researchers spotted a group of proteins forming an unfamiliar structure. Working with UCSD colleague Gene Yeo, they determined the structure to be a new complex of proteins that binds RNA. The complex is likely involved in splicing, a cel-

lular event that enables the translation of genes to proteins, and helps determine which genes are activated at which times. The scientists had been interested in mapping the inner workings of cells for many years. What’s different about MuSIC is the use of deep learning to map the cell directly from cellular microscopy images. “The combination of these technologies is unique and powerful because it's the first time measurements at vastly different scales have been brought together,” said study first author Yue Qin, a bio-informatics and sys-

tems biology graduate student in Ideker’s lab. Microscopes allow scientists to see down to the level of a single micron — about the size of some organelles, such as mitochondria. Smaller elements, such as individual proteins and protein complexes, can’t be seen through a microscope. Biochemistry techniques, which start with a single protein, allow scientists to get down to the nanometer scale, or one-billionth of a meter. The team trained the MuSIC artificial intelligence platform to look at all the data and construct a model of the cell. The

system doesn’t yet map the cell contents to specific locations, like a textbook diagram, in part because their locations aren’t necessarily fixed, the researchers said. Ideker noted this was a pilot study to test MuSIC. The team has only looked at 661 proteins and one cell type. “The clear next step is to blow through the entire human cell and then move to different cell types, people and species,” Ideker said. “Eventually we might be able to better understand the molecular basis of many diseases by comparing what’s different between healthy and diseased cells.”

So why is this cycle escalating? Why are you NOT winning the war when you frequently win the battles? Because the antibiotic solution does more harm than good. What’s a sinus sufferer to do? Glad you asked. The problem is twofold. First, you are fighting what is a symbiotic relationship of fungus and bacteria with an active agent that kills only the bacteria. Second, the active agent that you are using to kill the bacteria kills only some of the bacteria. The un-killed ones that are not susceptible to your chosen antibiotic will takeover the feeding grounds of the ones that you have killed, leaving you with a fauna of germs that you cannot kill. Let’s explore the first point. Your sinuses are host

to many fungi. Your immunity system does its best to kill these invaders but this is a constant battle, for every breath that you take will contain molds. What makes this problem worse is the fact that the fungus produces a platform of insulation on which the bacteria can live and thrive. In this manner, they are insolated from your immunity system and from the drugs that you would take to reach them. You need an anti-fungal to attenuate the population of molds (fungi) that inhabit your sinuses and insulate

the bacteria from the reach of your immune system. And now for the second part. It is very important to choose an anti-microbial that will kill ALL the bacteria. Each type of antibiotic will kill only a portion of the fauna leaving the survivors to take-over the nutritional sinus tissue that the killed bacteria have abandoned. What you want is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial that kills all types of bacteria as evenly as possible so that you don’t just kill TURN TO NATURE’S RITE ON B14

HERB OF THE MONTH Frankincense By Victoria O’Rielly, ACN

The story of the Wise Men coming from the East bearing gifts of Frankincense, Gold and Myrrh, is long associated with the Christmas season. A sticky substance from the gummy sap of trees growing in Africa and the Middle East, frankincense may well have been worth more than gold in Biblical times! It has been valued in human history for thousands of years. Frankincense was burned as incense for religious ceremonies in ancient Greece, Persia, Babylonia and Assyria. It was known for its ability to slow and deepen breathing, enhance feel-

ings of calm and to purify the air. In the Temple of Jerusalem, it was one of the sacred oils used for making sacrifices. In Europe, it was one of the holy oils used to anoint kings and queens when they were crowned. It is still in use as incense today; its fragrance may still be found in some Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. Frankincense was well known in Indian Ayurvedic medicine as part of the Guggul botanical family. It is still used as an anti-inflammatory in the treatment of arthritis, nervous system disorders, skin TURN TO HERB ON B14

Three people overdose, die each day in San Diego


he County of San Diego recently published stark numbers about fatal drug overdoses. Overdose deaths have been exacerbated by the mental health challenges caused by the pandemic. In January, overdose deaths had increased at least 50% since the same time last year. Three people overdose and die daily, mostly from opioids. The indirect causes of overdose deaths vary. Some people are newly addicted, some have relapsed and others may have increased their drug use or are struggling to maintain it. Drug supplies have been spotty on the streets of San Diego for illicit drug users, causing them to turn to other sources. Fentanyl is hyper-potent and often found in drug supplies that are sold as heroin or OxyContin.

Pandemic & relapse San Diego isn’t the only place where people are struggling. The pandemic has, in part, ushered in a new addiction epidemic. Some individuals in recovery have struggled with isolation, lost jobs, and financial struggles and have relapsed since the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdowns. Drugs are not flowing on the streets the way they used to due to border shutdowns and fewer flights. Thus, pills are often cut with fentanyl, which is very potent and can be fatal to inexperienced people using it. A drug addiction, now referred to as a substance use disorder (or SUD), is found among people from all backgrounds. Addiction is a disease and progresses TURN TO ADDICTION ON B14

ver the years, studies have clearly demonstrated that infections in the mouth are linked to an increased incidence of heart disease, strokes and preterm and low weight newborns. Google the connection between gum disease and systemic health, and the evidence is not hard to find. However, despite all the available information and evidence on the tie-in between dentistry and overall health, why isn’t there more talk about it? Especially since the mouth is so accessible and so responsive to simple things that can be done daily to improve oral health. While routine maintenance and work done in the dental office may also be involved, there are many things that can be done at home DIYstyle, not only to improve oral health but systemic health as well. A recent study on flossing demonstrates that it can increase life expectancy by more than 6 years! Most people will agree that inflammation of their intestinal lining is not a good thing. It can lead to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, SIBO and Crohn’s Disease or even worse. So what’s the difference between inflammation in your intestines

and inflammation in your mouth? Very little, actually. However, one very basic and important difference is the relative absence of symptoms until the gum disease is advanced. Unlike IBS, where there can be pain, loss of function, soreness or swelling, gum disease offers little motivation to seek help until the disease has progressed. This presents a difficulty because, if there are no symptoms or pain to alert you that there’s an issue, then you don’t realize there’s a problem. Even if your dentist suggests that there is. It’s simple human nature. If there is no pain, then there is no incentive for a change in habits. And good home care and routine dental care are habits. Maybe they are inconvenient, but nevertheless they are habits. Most people do realize that oral health is important to overall health, but

The likelihood of heart disease increases by 2x in the presence of gum disease! If a special camera could show you the lining of your intestine, and you could see inflammation there, would you change your routines? Likewise, if that camera could show you inflammation caused by plaquing in the epithelial lining of your blood vessels, would you change your diet, lifestyle and exercise patterns? So why not change your habits like flossing when you see inflammation in the gums around your teeth? Now that you know that inflammation is not normal and strains your immune system in an already toxic world, are you willing to make some changes? The good news is that home hygiene doesn’t have to be hard or time consuming. In fact most people can do a great job in just 3-5 minutes a day! That’s it. It’s just a matter of knowing what to do and having the right tools. That’s why I have put together an instructional guide on the simple things you can do at home that will improve the health of your mouth along with your overall health. Additionally, some things you can purchase over the counter (or online at products) will make your home hygiene routine more effective.

few would change their habits because of it. It’s so easy to ignore what doesn’t hurt! Here is a picture of gum inflammation: There can be evidence looking back at you in the mirror every morning! If you have red inflamed gums, it’s due to bacteria feeding on the white film on your teeth called plaque. If this plaque is not removed on a daily basis, these microbes cause inflammation in your gums as your body tries to fight off the invading bacteria. If left unchecked, this bacteria gains access to your bloodstream. If your gums bleed when you floss or go to the dentist that is exactly what is happening. Bacteria leaking into your bloodstream takes a toll on your immune system because it’s going on 24/7. That is why gum disease and gum inflammation can Carey O’Rielly, DDS is a result in higher incidence of heart disease, heart at- holistic dentist practicing in tacks, strokes, arthritis, di- Encinitas.

Holiday weight loss tips with Dr. Brar


By Kern Brar, MD

athering for the holidays is a tricky time for those trying to watch their weight. We have temping seasonal desserts that are too delicious to pass. A routine concern I hear is the dreaded ‘COVID-15’ or the ‘COVID-20’, the amount of weight patients have added because they are unable to do the things they used to. Gyms and pools were closed. More time was spent working from home, often near the kitchen. The eventual snacking leads to weight gain that contributes to a decline in health and many problems including low back pain, diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea. Cutting calories and reducing your overall fat percentage can reverse these issues and improve your overall happiness. One size does not fit all, we are all unique and bring different strengths and weaknesses to the table. Some are able to skip meals easily, others can change their diet drastically. Some patients are able to afford using a commercial program like Optavia, Medi-fast, Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers, but a lot of my patients are unable to afford the $500 monthly cost of these programs. I am here to let you know there is a simpler and cheaper solution. In our office, we treat each patient with respect and part of the individual solution we prescribe to pa-


tients is based on their current intake. We like to learn exactly what habits in terms of eating and exercise our patients have. We then recommend small changes in habitual behaviors that can be very powerful in changing the trajectory of the overall path. A few small tools can help our patients navigate their meals and we have the ability to follow their journey biochemically with drastic improvements in overall health. Motivation is the strongest determinant to successful weight loss and we are happy to help patients achieve their goals. We recommend you to schedule a consultation if you are interested in making a change. My push for my patients to lose weight has changed into a passion as I

have continued to succeed in weaning patients off insulin, reversing the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in their medical chart by treating and reversing their weight problem. Now this may not work for everyone, yet I have spent the last few years looking at which options have been helpful for my patients and I will share them to help you achieve your goals: • Eat lean protein 20 minutes before eating everything else • During the holiday season, prioritize sleep as 7 hours can control your hunger and stress levels. • As you are making food, do not sample the food. The “small” bites and “little” tastes can add up to a lot of calories. • Before you go to a holiday party, decide how much you are going to allow yourself to eat and remind yourself of your weight goal. • When you select your plate, pick the smallest plate available so that your portions will be smaller and do not go back for seconds. • Always use small plate, fill it with protein and vegetables. Save desserts for last. • Beer, soda, and wine go down easy and can add hundreds if not thousands

of calories to your daily and weekly intake. Drink more water. • Eat slowly and enjoy each mouthful. • Make sure you are only eating if you are hungry, and not just grazing because food is near. • Consider Intermittent Fasting and limit the time you eat your meals • If you’re drinking alcohol, remember that it is high in calories and try to limit your consumption to a 2 drink maximum. • If you work in an environment with holiday treats, remove them from your cubicle, deck or office. Do what you can to avoid office treats. • If you struggle with eating too many leftovers, give away the leftovers when you host a party this season. • Go on a walk, play with the kids or dogs, do anything that helps get you up and about. • When you first get to a party, take time to speak to everyone at the party instead of heading straight for the food. • Be accountable to someone else for your weight. Have a spouse or friend improve your chances with some healthy competition. • You don’t have to eat only carrot sticks, but practice moderation and don’t eat every dessert available. Have one bite that truly savor it. • When you are full, put the plate away. • Drink 4-5 glasses of water every day, 1 before each meal at least to maintain a sense of fullness and hydration. • If you taste something and don’t enjoy it, do not waste your calories finishing it. • Eat Steel Cut Oatmeal made with water for brunch if you plan on eating unhealthy at dinner • Switch drinks for homemade soda water as it has zero calories.

Luxury relaxation at Soothe by Avacen It is now possible to enjoy the relaxing benefits of a sauna with your clothes on! Arthritis and muscular pain relief without drugs!


eel good after a dryheat sauna? Well… there is now a more convenient and less expensive way to experience similar benefits. It’s the AVACEN thermotherapy system, an FDAcleared, Class II medical device, that is changing the way innovative medical practitioners are reducing many pain symptoms by warming the body from inside. This one-of-a-kind non-invasive, easy to use, soothing treatment has shown great promise in reducing pain associated with arthritis and other muscular conditions. According to Robert Klein, M.D., a licensed Rheumatologist with many national outstanding achievement awards, “My wife has severe longstanding degenerative arthritis with an inflammatory component of the thumbs and fingers. She had to give up piano, gardening, chopping vegetables, and needed to wear thumb splints con-

stantly. After use of the AVACEN device she is now back to playing piano, gardening, and chopping vegetables. She can also take lids off jars for the first time in years and no longer wears her splints. She is not pain free, but the pain is level 2-3 intensity rather than the 6-8 prior to AVACEN. She can even take her ring off her previously swollen finger. She has not been able to do this for years due to the swollen joint.” AVACEN thermotherapy entails a pain free, soothing, and enjoyable treatment. Just put your hand in this futuristic looking machine, which is about the size of a shoe box, for 15 - 20 minutes and some really great things can happen such as pain dissipating, that foggy shroud disappearing, and joints moving more freely. For many, eyelids become heavy, stress fades and many people actually fall asleep. The AVACEN device accomplishes its unique treatment by exploiting a special vascular system found the palm of the hand (one of the body’s most efficient thermoregulation portals). With an estimated 12 million of safe treatments, the AVACEN device may be the answer for many people who need or prefer a safe, cost-effective, easy-to-use, drug-free alternative for whole-body muscular relaxation and pain relief. AVACEN Medical, a Carlsbad, California company, has been awarded 5 U.S. and 9 International patents for its unique apparatus and methods that support an innovative medical process called The AVACEN Treatment Method.

Creativity and cuisine thrive at Oceanside’s Communal lick the plate david boylan


n a recent trip to Oceanside, we popped into a stylish place called Communal and I made a mental note to revisit this stretch of cool I later discovered called the “Tremont Collective.” Communal is the multifaceted space that anchors the Tremont Collective, which is actually a community of like-minded businesses, offering a private patio, flower shop, full café experience, and a retail and event space called “The Annex.” Communal is a sexy mix of coffee shop, wine bar, restaurant, workspace and flower shop, with an eclectic mix of patrons that gives Oceanside its charm. It features a mural created by North Park artist, Chelsea Smith, seating indoors and outdoors in a comfortably designed space. With two large skylights, the Oceanside space mirrors the natural tones and coastal palette of Com-

munal’s other locations in North Park and South Park, with elevated elements like the winding wine bar and a lounge with leather couches and chairs and of course, a communal table. The menu was created

by Chef Jeannette Silva and features a full line of breakfast sandwiches including Smoked Salmon Bagel, Maple Sausage Sandwich and Turkey Pesto Sandwich, along with bowls that are served all day.

The toast bar also served all day includes a few of my favorites including Croque Madame and Herbed Cucumber Avocado. Pizzettas and salads are served from 12 p.m. – 7

p.m. and include a nice mix of delicious Pizzettas, which are basically small pizzas, and some very healthy yet satisfying salads. Healthy is good but it was nice to see a Pastrami Melt, Bahn Mi and Rosemary Three-

Cheese Melt should your hunger need a bit more to quell it. Desserts include some fun options including Chocolate Chia Pudding, Crème Brule Toast and Banoffee which is a banana, cream sweet butter tart with an espresso whip. While the “cocktails” are actually wine-based, they do have some creative options including the Ginger Pear Cocktail, Sparkling Sangria, or simply a glass of wine to be enjoyed from the seaside-inspired wine bar. It’s a perfect location to unwind after a day of work and the residential setting on Tremont, a block west of Coast Highway 101 provides the perfect atmosphere. I’m also a big fan of fresh flowers so the flower shop element really appealed to me. I could see utilizing this space for a light bite to eat, catch up on some work, and leave with a fresh arrangement of flowers that have a bit more personality than your local grocery store.

The beauty of this comparison, and why I would suggest you choose La Valencia over Amalfi, is the short drive from anywhere in San Diego County for a memorable experience with this “Pink Lady” landmark hotel. La Valencia opened its doors in 1926. It served guests who had a preference for an unforgettable luxurious experience that they could return to, time and time again, to soak in the pool or the Pacific Ocean coastline or the iconic tower with its captivating penthouse. La Jolla Cove and its shoreline, with rich views of the beaches that dot the Southern California coast, is just steps away from La Valencia. When it’s time to dine, La Valencia has made certain that the Med and its Executive Chef Timothy Ralphs brought all things majestic to the table including its California Coastal Cuisine and uncompromising service. Our good fortune was that the seasonal menu changes that warm the heart had just been created for breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Ralphs joined The Med signature team in 2019, plus the hotel’s La Sala Bar. A graduate of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale, Ralphs has spent more than two decades in the world’s most

hanksgiving was once again the unofficial opening weekend for eggnog (egg nog is also acceptable) which means it is time for my annual rant against the gag-inducing holiday cocktail of creamy alcoholic milk, egg and booze cocktail. We don’t know for certain the origins of eggnog. Commonly accepted history credits the British for drinking warm, curdled milk, wine and spice drink called “posset” that evolved into eggnog in the Americas in the middle of the 1700s. It sounds like a dare that went too far.

“Hey William, I dare you to drink this weird milk.” “No way, Nellie!” “C’mon, William! I’ll put an egg in it…” To make modern eggnog, you obviously need eggs. In some recipes they only use the egg whites. In others they only use

the yolks. The eggs are whipped free of their sins until frothy, and mixed with thick whipping cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, booze, and any spices that are to your preference. Most often the alcohol is brandy or whiskey, but spiced or dark rum can be used in a pinch. It is an

Holiday delight guaranteed to please


until all of our job applications are just collections of our social media output? And yet, eggnog lovers are passionate advocates for the drink. Every major dairy in the country makes pre-made, nonalcoholic eggnog you can take home in a milk carton. In non-pandemic years I have to distract my wife from the dairy section of the grocery store by pointing out the frosted candy cane-shaped cookies in the bakery. Never have I gone to a family winter holiday party without seeing the big punch bowl filled with what appears to be some sort of frosting and gravy dusted with nutmeg. I stopped pretending to like it years ago, but no doubt some Uncle will slap me on the back before insisting I try it. “You’ll like this one. I made it!” I’ll let myself be talked into tasting just a touch in hopes of being left alone with my paper plate covered in mashed potatoes and sugar cookies. “See!” says Uncle So-and-So, and let them misinterpret my grimace for a smile. In the Midwest, they ratchet up the brandy-to-egg ratio, like really ratchet it up, so at least there is that. Even so, hours later the ghost of eggnog present still tickles my lips. Taunting me. When it comes to holiday drinks, I’m all for wassail — which is a hot mulled cider — or a Gluhwein, the traditional hot Austrian spiced wine drink.

The only female Pharaoh, Queen Hatshepsut (1490-1468 BC) popularized its use in perfumes and cosmetics. Another name for frankincense found in old medical records is Olibanum. This is thought to derive from the Latin words ‘Olium Libanum’, meaning oil from Lebanon. The name ‘frankincense’ is based on the Medieval French words for ‘real incense’. The botanical name is Boswellia, which has five main varieties, all of which have similar therapeutic value. It was named in honor of the Scottish botanist John Boswell (1710 - 1780). Because it is actually a resin, many books on herbal medicine do not include it. To date, a total of nine compounds have been isolated from it, which are all thought to contribute to its antiviral, anti-inflammatory properties.

Studies have shown that its antiinflammatory properties are likely due to boswellic acids, which can cross the blood/brain barrier. So it may be useful in the prevention of Alzheimer’s, which is an inflammatory condition of the brain. It is widely used for its impact on the respiratory system, as it is one of the best antiseptics for the lungs. It is especially effective with chronic bronchitis and with asthma because of its calming influence. It is also an expectorant and can calm a cough. It can be used effectively in inhalations, in a bath, or as a massage oil. Using broad massage strokes that open the chest area can help to calm and deepen breathing. Because of its effect on breathing, frankincense is also helpful in situations where there is anxiety. It is also an antidepressant and a muscle relaxant. Frankincense is useful for UTI’s (urino-genital tract infections) as well for heavy periods. It is safe to use during pregnancy.

As we find ourselves surrounded by an abundance of this year’s “musthave” items, our shopping lists are often dictated by retail experts all claiming to offer the ultimate gift-giving guide. But there’s no need to spend a fortune or face the aggravation of competing with crowds for sold-out products. Sometimes, the most rich and memorable gifts can be created in the kitchen. To put a touch of finesse on your sweet treats, take a cue from the experts and use Plugrá butter, which professional pastry chefs prefer because of its slow-churn and extra creaminess. Unlike other butters, Plugrá uses the right balance of specially selected cream and butterfat, resulting in a texture that harmoniously bends and blends to help craft homemade, confectionary masterpieces. Using the finest ingredients, Plugrá’s executive chef, Linda Hall, developed a decadent brownie recipe that’s certain to spice up gift-giving. “Nothing says indulgence like a gooey, chocolaty brownie, however, most people have been there, done that,” Hall says. This year, dial it up a notch by adding spices and flavors that evoke warmth and coziness. My recipe is reminiscent of a hot cup of Mexican hot chocolate that has cinnamon and vanilla notes.”

What’s more, it can be sprayed directly into the sinuses and so it doesn’t have to be taken systemically. You apply it ONLY where the infection is occurring; In your nose.

Package your dessert in a decorative tin or box and handwrite the recipe for the gift that keeps giving! Of course, since you have a sinus infection, the mucosal flow is pretty large. This will flush the antimicrobial from the area in less than 10 minutes. It is absolutely paramount to the success of this therapy that you spray every 20 to 30 minutes. Using the Neti Pot in the morning and evening for 10 minutes works quite well. So you see, the balanced holistic approach to sinusitis rests with using the right active agent, in the right concentration, in the right place and with the right protocol. If this is done, you will attenuate the fungus and the bacteria while not shifting the fauna and flora. You will re-establish the balance of power in your nose.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your curiosity might not be appreciated by everyone. Expect some resistance in getting answers to your questions. But stay with it. You need facts in order to make important decisions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some of the mystery surrounding your recent fiscal situation soon will be dispelled with a clear explanation. Use this new knowledge to help you chart a fresh financial course. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Start your holiday gift-buying now. This will help avoid problems caused by possible mid-December delays. A family member has important information. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Use a little more sense in how you plan to spend your end-of-the-year holiday dollars. Meanwhile, you continue to gain support for your stand on a workplace issue. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Wearing that big, loving Lion’s heart of yours on your sleeve leaves it unprotected. Let things develop a little more before you allow your emotions to spill over. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to September 22) You might feel you’re not ready to patch up an unraveled relationship. But the longer you wait, the more difficult it will be for all parties to take the first healing step.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your end-of-the-year holiday plans could be disrupted by something out of your control, but stay the course. Ultimately, things will settle back into a normal pace. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your honest approach to a workplace project earns you both respect and credit from those in charge. Meanwhile, that personal problem still needs to be dealt with. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Money could be a little tight this month. This means the usually bargain-oblivious Sagittarian should look for ways to save on endof-the-year holidays. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Examine the facts, and you might find that it’s a wiser move to shift gears and redirect some of your goals before the end of the year. Someone close to you offers good advice. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Be careful that your generosity is not abused. Find out more, both about the special favors you might be asked to grant and who is asking for them. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You’ve come through a recent rough time in great shape. Congratulations. Now go out and enjoy your well-earned rewards. More good news comes in mid-December. BORN THIS WEEK: You aim for truth, and you usually find it. Your honesty earns you the friendship and respect of others. © 2021 King Features Synd., Inc.

George Weir was active while attending Escondido High School, graduating in 1972. He served as associated student body vice-president, was involved in the Key Club, the Cougar Knights, various sports, the high school orchestra and band, and had time to become an Eagle Scout. He attended San Diego State University, majoring in Spanish and zoology, graduating in 1979. Cynthia attended Palomar College, taking classes in accounting, theater, and interior design, earning an AA Degree. Marriage and motherhood sidelined further formal education, but she studied painting, especially watercolors, and eventually taught art classes at the Poway Adult School and several other venues.
