SANDAG shakeup looms

REGION — The November election will transform the San Diego Association of Governments board of directors and may push out the agency’s chief executive officer, Hasan Ikhrata, who has been challenged for questionable spending.

Newly elected mayors

in Escondido, Chula Vista and National City, along with new council members in Vista and Carlsbad, will likely move the board in a more conservative direction.

Escondido has been without a representative on SANDAG since January, when the council removed Democratic Mayor Paul McNamara. Republican chal-

lenger Dane White recently defeated McNamara in the city’s mayoral race, but the Escondido City Council has yet to appoint him to the SANDAG board.

Republican John McCann and Ron Morrison, a right-leaning independent, are the new mayors in Chula Vista and National City, respectively.

Chula Vista, the second-largest city in the county, may give Republicans more control if the board

Del Mar to install cameras

City OKs license plate readers at key intersections

DEL MAR — The city of Del Mar is partnering with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to install license plate recognition cameras to assist investigations into serious crimes, joining other cities throughout North County that have implemented similar programs.

Five cameras will be installed on traffic lights at main intersections in the city by the end of December, according to Assistant City Manager Clem Brown.

At a Monday meeting, the City Council approved a payment of $28,790 to the Sheriff’s Department for the cameras to be operated for three years.

Lt. Christopher Lawrence said the data gathered by the cameras, which use the Rekor license plate recognition (LPR) software, will be used solely for investigations into crimes such as homicides, child abductions, assaults and series of burglaries.

“It’s very limited to an open criminal investigation — that’s the only time this data is able to be used,” Lawrence said. “It can’t be used to support red light camera violations or anything like that, and it has nothing to do with speeders or anything like that. Again, it’s just

DEL MAR — The Del Mar Fairgrounds has halted plans to launch a potentially lucrative new sportsbook after the failure of a state proposition that would have legalized in-person sports betting at private horse race tracks and tribal casinos.

The 22nd District Agricultural Association, the board managing the fairgrounds, voted in the fall of 2021 to make sports betting a permitted activity at its off-track wagering center pending the passage of Proposition 26.

Ultimately, the proposition was one of two sports betting measures soundly defeated in this election, being rejected by over twothirds of California voters. Proposition 27, which sought to legalize online sports betting statewide, faced an even more decisive loss with 80% of constituents voting “no.”

Following the election, Fairgrounds CEO Carlene Moore said the Fairgrounds would shelve all efforts for the new sportsbook at this time. This includes finding an operator to manage the planned first-class sportsbook, where sports wagering could have taken place simultaneously with horse race betting at the racetrack.

However, she said the Fairgrounds is open to the possibility of trying again

if another sports wagering measure comes before voters in the future.

“If California voters are supportive of sports wagering in the future, the 22nd DAA remains interested in the opportunity to further its mission to connect our community through shared interests, diverse experiences, and service to one another in an inclusive, accessible, and safe place with an emphasis on agriculture, education, recreation, and entertainment,” Moore said.

Even more than race tracks, propositions 26 and 27 spelled out major impacts for tribal casinos. The majority of California’s tribes supported Proposition 26 and opposed 27, warning that the expansion of online sports betting would impact the sovereignty of tribes which depend on income from casinos.

Advertising for both measures focused heavily on tribal support, and often failed to mention sports betting — and in the case of Proposition 26, race tracks — at all. Campaign spending on the two sports betting measures was among the most expensive in the state’s history, with over $300 million spent on advertising by supporters and opponents of both propositions.

Over 30 states have legalized sports betting in some form, but for now, that possibility remains out of reach for California at least until the next election cycle.

“It’s clear voters don’t want a massive expansion

of online sports betting, and they trust Indian tribes when it comes to responsible gaming,” said Mark Macarro, Tribal Chairman of the Pechanga Band of Indians in San Diego County. “As tribes, we will analyze these results, and collectively have discussions about what the future of sports wagering might look like in California.”

Holiday stress busters

41% of those polled are stressed by the holidays. Fortunately, there are many ways to bust holiday stress. Set realistic goals. Your expectations should correspond to your circumstances, time and money. Don’t try to outdo family and friends. You don’t have to impress anyone.

A wonderful holiday season doesn’t have to be expensive. Set a manageable budget and stick to it. Determine before you go shopping how much you will spend on food and presents. Entertaining doesn’t have to cost a lot. Sumptuous meals can be prepared without expensive ingredients. Use your imagination and creativity.

If there are lots of people on your gift list, contact them and agree to a maximum cost for each gift. They will probably appreciate a pre-set spending limit as much as you will. Consider making your own gifts, such as baked goods or crafts.

A variety of free or low-cost activities are available. Many communities provide holiday programs such as parades and winter carnivals. Informal gatherings with friends and family can be lots of fun without obligating anyone to host a big party.

Accept relatives and friends for who they are. Put aside differences; don’t try to resolve them during gatherings. Bringing up past issues will not add to the seasonal joy.

Divorced parents need to be extra sensitive to their children’s emotions. Make children’s needs a priority and avoid using them as pawns. Children want to spend time with both of their parents so work together to facilitate reciprocal visitation.

If you are hosting a meal or party, ask each guest to bring a dish. Delegate responsibilities to your spouse and children. Everyone will feel included and no one has to carry the full load.

Don’t snap at others. Have rules and guidelines for older children returning home for the holidays. Ask guests to supervise their children if they get too rambunctious.

Plan ahead for what you want to accomplish before the holiday rush starts. You can pace yourself if you have enough time. Spreading out activities leaves you calmer and more relaxed.

Prioritize what you want to accomplish. Organize your time to allow for the most important tasks. Say no to requests that don’t fit your plans. Be flexible.

Make time for yourself. Maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating proper-

ly, exercising and getting enough sleep.

It’s normal and OK to feel sad during the holidays. Life is unpredictable and brings many changes. Don’t compare today with the good old days from your past. Take charge of your life. Don’t act like a victim. Spend time with supportive and caring people. Help others by volunteering. Whenever you bring a smile to someone’s face, you will feel better too.

Make realistic resolutions. Set goals you can accomplish. Don’t abandon your resolutions after a few weeks. After the holidays, actively working toward your goals will keep you positive and focused on the good in life.

California fares well in ‘Great Resignation’

Millions of Americans have quit their jobs each month over the last year and a half — essentially ever since vaccines reduced the frequency and intensity of bouts with most variants of COVID-19.

At the same time, some California cities emptied at generationally high rates, with San Francisco the best example, losing more than 6% of its populace to the new white-collar reality of working at home, with location almost completely irrelevant.

Workers can be in Montenegro as easily as Montebello, and hardly anyone will know the difference.

This creates unprecedented worker mobility all over the country, as huge numbers take months or years off and survive on savings or fortunes accumulated via stock options over the last 15 years.

It also causes many of the “help wanted” signs appearing in the windows of myriad workplaces, from post offices to Starbucks, small bakeries, customer service telephone centers and restaurants.

It means shorter menus, too, as cooks and chefs are hard to find. It’s also a time of finding your own merchandise at big box stores, helpful salespeople now scarcer than ever.

Radio ads even offered $3,000 signing bonuses to new bus drivers in Los Angeles, treatment normally reserved for individuals with specialized abilities and training.

Since California leads the nation in almost every social and economic trend, good or bad, the expectation might be that more folks are resigning their jobs here than anywhere else. That presumption would be dead wrong.

New findings from the WalletHub website, which tracks a variety of economic trends, show California ranks as the No. 38 state in resignations. Just 2.53% of workers here have quit their jobs over the last year, the website found.

Florida, whose governor continually compares his state to California, ranked fourth in resignations, as almost twice as high a proportion of its populace quit.

Texas was 28th, while Alaska led the great resignation, with a 4.7% annualized rate of departures. Maybe it’s the cold, dark winters and physical isolation that comes with living in most parts of that physically huge state.

Why is California faring better than the vast majority of other states in this societal upheaval?

It may be the long experience of the tech indus-

california focus

try with gig workers, who for many years have moved around frequently while hunting for ever greener pastures.

Where in most states there is a large pay gap between job shifters and long-term workers, that is much less common in California.

Nationally, says the Cantabria economic blog, the average pay differential is 7%, with — for example — the median salary for established software development managers at $131,000, while new hires in the same job get a median pay of $143,000 regardless of age or experience.

To avoid that differential, which can spur resentful longtime employees to search for new jobs, companies must constantly grant raises and bonuses to existing workers so newcomers don’t outpace their pay. If those firms then hit unexpected hard times, it can lead to layoffs, which lately have hit companies like Meta and Salesforce.

The almost constant upward momentum all this created over the last 20 months is one reason U.S. wages overall rose 4.7% in that time.

Many California companies are long accustomed to these phenomena, which created massive new wealth for youthful high-tech workers at companies like Google and Apple and Hulu.

Most Silicon Valley companies see to it that longer-term employees are at least as well off as new hires. Failure to do that would lead to shuffles and a much higher California resignation rate.

Women, too, are using the great resignation to eliminate much of the longtime pay gap between themselves and men. CNBC reports 85% of women workers believe they deserve pay increases and 65% think the resignation wave gives them more leverage to get them.

Of the 47 million Americans who quit jobs in 2021, most of those responding to surveys cited better pay and benefits as reasons. It’s still unknown if women actually reduced the pre-existing 18% pay gap between them and white males in similar jobs.

All this may be inconvenient for businesses, but it’s also providing bonanzas for many thousands of workers.

Store clerk shot in armed robbery

OCEANSIDE — Police are seeking two suspects today stemming from an armed robbery at a convenience store in Oceanside that left an employee hospitalized with a gunshot wound.

Just before 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oceanside Police responded to the AM PM mini-mart connected to an Arco gas station at 1990 Oceanside Boulevard to find an employee, a man whose identity was not released, suffering from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen, according to authorities.

The suspects entered the store, pointed a gun at the victim, and demanded money, according to the OPD.

The employee tried to chase the robbers out of the store with a stick when one of the suspects opened fire on him, striking his abdomen area with a bullet, according to police.

The victim was taken to the hospital, and his status was unknown, according to authorities.

The suspects are described as two 5-foot, 10inch Hispanic males approximately 20 to 25 years old, according to the OPD.

One suspect was dressed in black hooded sweatshirt with black pants, and black shoes and was armed with a black semi-auto handgun while the second robber wore a gray New Balance hooded sweatshirt with black sweatpants and black shoes, according to authorities.

OPD detectives were actively investigating the shooting and trying to locate the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call OPD's Crimes of Violence detective at 760-435-4698.

Woman charged with embezzling funds for canceled school trips

A San Diego-based travel agent has been charged with embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars paid by more than 150 parents for school trips that were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marie Colette Martin, 52, is accused of spending the funds on personal expenses rather than refunding parents after the trips were canceled.

She has pleaded not guilty to 27 felony counts of grand theft and seller of travel violations. Prosecutors allege more than $415,000 was embezzled in total.

In a statement, California Attorney General Rob Bonta said, “More than 150 California families set aside their hardearned money to give their children the educational opportunity of a lifetime. Instead, the trip was cancelled, and their money disappeared.’’

According to the California Attorney General’s Office, Martin solicited the travel funds from parents at nine schools in Los Angeles and Orange counties. The trips would have sent eighth-grade students from those schools to Washington D.C. and other East Coast locations in 2020, though the pandemic prevented the trips from happening.

When parents sought refunds, Martin allegedly declined, then used the

money for personal uses, including credit card purchases, rent and artwork.

Escondido man dies in truck crash on state Route 78

A 38-year-old Escondido man died in a solo vehicle traffic crash on state Route 78, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At 11:34 p.m. Dec. 3, the man was driving a Toyota Tundra on the westbound SR-78 transition to northbound Interstate 5. The truck veered off the roadway, collided into the right shoulder barrier wall and rolled over multiple times, CHP Officer Hunter Gerber said.

The driver was ejected from the Toyota and declared dead at the scene. Anyone with information on the incident was asked to contact the CHP Oceanside area office at (760) 6433400.

Man dies in head-on collision on Torrey Pines Road

A 55-year-old man died in a fiery head-on collision near the Torrey Preserve neighborhood, police reported today.

Just before 6:45 p.m. on Monday, police responded to 11900 Torrey Pine Road when the victim, who was riding a Triumph motorcycle in the southbound lane of Torrey Pines Road, crossed into the northbound lane and collided head- on with a 2016 Toyota 4-Runner.

Both vehicles caught fire, resulting in the death of the 55-year-old man, whose identity was not released. Neither occupant of the 4-Runner was injured, according to authorities.

After local office, Blakespear outlines goals for Sacramento

ENCINITAS — In a recent in-depth interview, Catherine Blakespear, a newly-elected state senator and outgoing Encinitas mayor, shared her thoughts on various state and local issues.

Blakespear, who has served on the Encinitas City Council since 2014, was elected to represent the 38th State Senate District after defeating Republican challenger Matt Gunderson last month.

As she transitions to her role as state legislator, Blakespear sat down to discuss a wide-reaching policy agenda she plans to bring to Sacramento during a episode of the Stay Classy San Diego podcast.

Homelessness

From day one on the new job, Blakespear said she would focus on addressing California’s unhoused crisis.

“The single biggest problem in this state is homelessness,” Blakespear said. “It affects everyone in every community. Of course, it’s horrible for the people experiencing it, but what’s resulting is that we have people living in all of our public spaces, in our parks, in our downtowns, in our riverbeds.”

The Encinitas mayor also noted the intransigence she’s encountered at the local level regarding mustering support and services for the homeless population.

“The only thing people seem to hate more than homelessness are the solutions to homelessness,” she said. “The solutions to homelessness are providing more housing, more services and support for people who are mentally ill and drug addicted people, and many communities are largely opposed to building more housing and services that help homeless people.”

Blakespear pointed to the battle over the city's Safe Parking Lot program for the homeless as an example of how difficult it can be to convince a community to get behind broad-based solutions.

“One of the programs I’m most proud of Encinitas is the Safe Parking program, which was hard to do…we had a tremendous amount of opposition in this city," Blakespear said. "But what I feel proud of my community for was that there was also such a rise of support for it. We had a pitched battle in our community over whether this was a good thing or a bad thing."

The Safe Parking Program, which opened in February 2020, allows qualified persons to stay overnight in a designated area without being removed or ticketed by law enforcement. Individuals in the program are vetted and must adhere to rules and guidelines to remain in the program, which prohibits the use of drugs or alcohol while staying on the lot.

Blakespear also was critical of the existing state

government for not setting mandated goals for homelessness reduction, arguing that the state needs to assert itself in outlining specific targets for its solutions, similar to how the state has set standards for municipalities regarding affordable housing numbers.

“One of the things that’s clear to me as I prepare to take on a role with the state legislature now is that if we’re going to have solutions to homelessness, they have to be mandated. They have to be goals," Blakespear said. "One of my biggest criticisms of our current system is that we don’t have any goals — when it comes to homelessness, there are no goals."

Blakespear proposed the state should encourage cities to zone housing specifically for the homeless in exchange for the municipality being able to reduce the overall number of units that it would otherwise be responsible for building as part of an incentive-based approach to homelessness.

“Right now, we zone for middle-income, low-income and extremely low-income,

but we don’t have a zoning category for homeless, Blakespear said. “My first bill on the first day is going to be related to that, the requirements and goal setting for the zoning of homeless housing — you can offer an incentive so that, yes, there’s the carrot, and also, this is a mandate.”

Renewable Energy

On the issue of renewable energy, Blakespear emphasized that state legislators need to step up and set mandatory goals for municipalities to move towards more sustainable forms of energy, including solar and wind.

In the last couple of years, state experts have warned extreme weather events, such as heat waves, could jeopardize the reliability of California’s electric supply, risking millions of residents’ access to power. Without investing in long-term energy solutions, these same experts have warned that the Golden State will likely face more rolling blackouts in the coming years.

“Having blackouts is

unacceptable in the same way that not having enough water is unacceptable,” she said. “We have to have power; it has to be on all the time — this is critical to our prosperity as a state and is essential to us being a first-world society. Saying we want all-electric cars by a certain date, things like that, these goals to force and push change are good for us. They make it so that we, as a general populace, are more ambitious with what we’re trying to accomplish. And it is possible to get energy from sustainable sources, so we should be working towards that.”

Blakespear did not express enthusiasm for more state investment in nuclear power, calling the problem of nuclear waste disposal an “existential threat” that shouldn’t be ignored.

“It’s disappointing that we haven’t found a place to handle this additional storage. There’s the idea of a consent-based process where we’re not forcing waste onto communities that don’t want it — we need to proceed with all haste if that’s an option,” Blake-

spear said. “Unfortunately, nobody’s raising their hand at the moment. Is there anybody willing to take (nuclear waste)? The answer is no. So without dealing with that, I think we should focus on renewables, such as solar and wind, that don’t have that major downside.”

Water scarcity

Acknowledging the impacts of California’s ongoing drought, Blakespear also emphasized the need for better water conservation and storage at the state level. She specifically called for better recycling and capture methods to prevent the waste of potable water that can be used to sustain communities without stable water sources, such as Encinitas.

“Water is used and treated and then put back into the ocean. We are putting millions and millions of gallons of nearly potable water back into the ocean daily, which is a major water source,” she said.

“So when we think about the circularity of water, I think that is the area where we can be the most aggressive because we know that the Colorado River and the Sierra Snowpack are unstable sources, that there’s not enough water for the demands of them, so making sure local sources are being used to their best effect and recycling water and using more of it. It’s so important, but the regulations haven’t quite kept up with that, so we need some modifications in that area.”

Blakespear also said that she would push for the building of more desalination plants, which she characterized as being an essential part of the future of California’s freshwater supply.

Currently, California has 12 desalination plants, including one in Carlsbad, which supplies a third of all freshwater produced in San

Diego County, “We have a huge body of water right next to us [the ocean]…that is clearly part of the future, that we would have more desalination plants and create more water from the desalination plants that we have,” the mayor said.

In October, the California Coastal Commission green-lit a $140 million desalination plant in south Orange County’s Dana Point for construction, a project aimed at supplying water for nearly 40,000 residents in areas including Dana Point, South Laguna Beach, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.

Transportation

On infrastructure, Blakespear said that she intends to push for more state investment into traditional forms of public transit, specifically bus lines and fixed rail.

“When you travel to places like Europe or Japan, and you see fixed rail working at a high level, you realize, wow, we could have this — it can be such an enjoyable way to travel, and it carries so many people faster,” she said. “Now we know California is car-centric, so how do you transition that? It’s difficult. But if you say, well, we’re going to have the road network and give up on public transit and forget fixed rail, then what we’re really doing is we’re saying that we’re going to have endlessly more congestion. Solving for congestion and solving for emissions is a really important part of our transit conversation.”

Blakespear, the current chair of SANDAG, said that she’s proud of the agency’s Regional Transportation Plan, which calls for $172 billion in development and improvements to the county’s transportation system and transit lines to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, or GHGs, over the next 30 years.

“This plan creates good local jobs…it creates more opportunities for alternative forms of transit such as biking and walking than we currently have. I think that’s really important and visionary, and it’s also meeting these state emission reduction goals that we have to meet.”

She also acknowledged the agency had recently been racked by controversy.

Earlier this year, an audit of credit card purchases made by the staff at SANDAG showed questionable and possibly improper spending of taxpayer money, with hundreds of thousands spent on special retreats at bars, restaurants, etc.

The agency’s independent auditor also found a lack of controls to keep credit card spending in check. Then in October, a separate audit found $290 million in SANDAG funds that may have been mishandled in contracts with vendors.

“Yes, I do,” Blakespear

Study to explore housing near transit hub

— North County Transit District and the city will partner for a study to explore increasing the amount of developable land around the Escondido Transit Center.

NCTD received $240,000 from the Federal Transit Administration to study the feasibility of exchanging parcels of land with the city near the transit center.

The Escondido Transit Center is currently separated from much of downtown Escondido by several parcels with industrial buildings, creating a barrier between transit services and many jobs, leisure activities, tourism, grocery stores and other services.

By exchanging some of these parcels, NCTD could better connect transit to downtown and increase the amount of housing and other amenities near the transit center.

“We are looking for-

ward to continuing our partnership with NCTD by exploring how we can increase transit and redevelopment opportunities within Escondido’s Gate -

way Transit area,” said Escondido City Engineer Julie Procopio in a statement announcing the study.

The total cost of the study is $300,000. While

FTA funding will cover most of that cost, Escondido will provide the remaining $60,000.

The Escondido Transit Center serves a hub for NCTD’s Sprinter rail line and the Breeze bus service. Approximately 2.5 million riders use the Sprinter along the 22-mile corridor from Escondido to Oceanside in a typical year, according to the transit district.

“This study is a critical aspect to maximize the benefits of transit-oriented development in Escondido,” said NCTD executive director Matthew Tucker.

Transit-oriented development is a type of urban development that maximizes the amount of residential, business and leisure space within walking distance of public transit services like trains and buses to create a more sustainable environment that is less reliant on individual vehicles.

“Strategic redevelopment of land near NCTD’s stations is an opportunity to create vibrant places that improve mobility, generate organic ridership and bring community benefits such as increased housing, new commercial and retail opportunities, and the creation of world-class public spaces,” Tucker said.

The study will be conducted alongside NCTD’s search for proposals to redevelop the Escondido Transit Center. In addition to Escondido, NCTD is advancing redevelopment projects at the Oceanside Transit Center, Carlsbad Village Station and Carlsbad Poinsettia Station with future plans to redevelop several other stations along the Sprinter corridor in Oceanside, Vista and San Marcos.

strictly used for criminal investigations into serious matters.”

One camera will be installed at each of the following intersections: Camino Del Mar and Via de la Valle going southbound, Camino Del Mar and Del Mar Heights Road going northbound, and 4th Street and Camino Del Mar going westbound.

Two additional cameras will be installed at the intersection of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and Via de la Valle, one for southbound traffic and the other for westbound traffic.

City leaders hope the LPR system will assist in locating suspects of serious crimes who don’t reside in the city and increase the recovery of stolen vehicles. According to a staff report, around half of the suspects arrested for severe offenses in Del Mar did not reside locally, indicating that they were traveling in and out of the city while committing crimes.

In addition, just 13% of stolen vehicles in Del Mar in 2022 were recovered by deputies in the city, according to the report.

“Rekor is one of the most advanced systems that are out there. They have the ability to read vanity plates, paper plates, metal plates and a number of other plates,” Lawrence said.

In addition, with the new Rekor system, the department will be prohibited from storing data collected by the camera for more than 90 days, he added, and the department has so far defended against all public records

“The [Rekor] LPR system is always active and provides live alerts. Therefore, this system would substantially improve the rate at which vehicles are recovered nearby, thus reducing the financial and time impacts to victims,” the staff report states.

While the City Council unanimously approved the agreement with the sheriff’s department, individual council members expressed concern about residents’ privacy.

Mayor Dwight Worden said he was worried about “false positives,” where the camera might identify an incorrect license plate and lead to law enforcement contacting the wrong person and about the data being made public.

“I am concerned about the privacy implications and would be interested in monitoring, and hopefully, we won’t get a lot of complaints about it,” Worden said.

Lawrence assured the

Police departments in other North County cities with LPR cameras have come under fire for how they used LPR data.

In January of this year, inewsource reported that the Carlsbad, Oceanside and Escondido police departments, along with those in La Mesa and Coronado, broke state law by sharing license plate reader data with out-of-state agencies. California police departments can only share LPR data with other state agencies.

After the news broke, the Carlsbad and Oceanside police departments appeared to change their policies to match state law. Oceanside also stopped sharing this data nationwide, and the Escondido department claimed they did nothing wrong, according to inewsource.

Along with Carlsbad, Escondido and Oceanside, the city of Encinitas recently approved an agreement to install plate reader cameras throughout the city.

Sport S

Who’s in, who’s out: NFL, World Cup, CFP

...QB Baker Mayfield, a former first-round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2018, was waived by the Carolina Panthers team on Monday. Mayfield was traded from the Browns to Carolina this season.

This last weekend was loaded with games across the spectrum of collegiate and professional sports, from the College Football Playoff to the World Cup in Qatar. Here’s who’s in and who’s out:

...Utah knocks out USC to win the Pac-12 Championship and earn a right to play in the Rose Bowl. This loss cost the Trojans a shot at a national championship.

...The USA men’s soccer team was eliminated from the World Cup after losing 3-1 to the Netherlands 3-1 on Saturday morning in Qatar. The US team was the youngest group of players in the tournament. According to Fox Sports Mexico, the U.S. men’s team and Canada are currently in discussions to participate in the 2024 Copa América.

...TCU loses to Kansas State in OT after trailing by 11 points late in the fourth quarter on Saturday in the Big 12 Championship at AT&T Stadium. The Horned Frogs rallied back with a field goal, touchdown and successful two-point conversion to send the game into overtime. TCU head coach Sonny Dykes decided to go for the touchdown on fourth down, but the Wildcats denied access. Kansas State kicked the winning field goal to seal the deal, 31-28. TCU’s QB Max Duggan, who completed 18-of-36 pass attempts for 251 yards and a touchdown, and rushed for 110 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown, was exceptional in the loss.

The College Football Playoff’s final four teams are set for Dec. 31: Ohio State (11-1) vs. Georgia (130) in the Peach Bowl; TCU (12-1) vs. Michigan (13-0) in the Fiesta Bowl. This year marks the first time in the CFP era that neither Alabama nor Clemson made the NCAA playoff semifinals.

...The Detroit Lions scored on their first nine possessions to blowout the Jacksonville Jaguars 40-17 on Sunday. The Lions did not punt one time versus the Jags. The Lions are trying to work their way back into a wild card slot after a disastrous start to the season.

...49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot in the first quarter against the Dolphins and will miss the rest of the season. The 49ers have won five games in a row, allowing their first second-half touchdown against Miami since Week 7. Garoppolo’s season-ending injury was a big blow to the 49ers’ Super Bowl dreams.

...San Francisco’s backup quarterback Brock Purdy (Iowa State), aka Mr. Irrelevant 2022 (for the last person taken in the NFL Draft), replaced the injured Jímmy Garoppolo to closeout the 49ers’ 33-17 victory over the Dolphins. Purdy was pretty effective in his debut, completing 25-of-37 pass attempts for 210 yards and two touchdowns, including his first NFL touchdown pass to Kyle Juszczyk.

...Josh Johnson, former University of San Diego quarterback, was signed by the 49ers from Denver’s practice squad. Johnson has been in and out of the league for 13 seasons.

...Talking about the Broncos...Denver lost (again) 10-9 to the Baltimore Ravens. The Broncos are averaging a leagueworst 13.8 points per game.

...The Dallas Cowboys set a team record for scoring 33 points in the 4th quarter on Sunday to rout the Indianapolis Colts, 54-19. The Cowboys’ 54 points are the most by any NFL team this season, topping their previous best of 49 points against the Bears earlier this season. In the past five games, the Cowboys have scored 199 points.

...The Cleveland Browns scored 27 points without an offensive touchdown.

...The Cincinnati Bengals have now beaten the Kansas City Chiefs three consecutive times. Bengals QB Joe Burrows had a 79% completion rate against the Chiefs.

...Add QB Jalen Hurts to the MVP talk. The Eagles play caller passed for 380 yards and accounted for four touchdowns (three passing, one rushing) in Philly’s 35-10 win over Tennessee. The Eagles improve to 11-1.

...Truth be Told: The Denver Broncos did not want Russell Wilson but instead wanted Aaron Rodgers. If Denver thought hiring Green Bay’s offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as head coach would be enough, the plan backfired big time.

...The No. 1 Houston Cougars are sitting atop the NCAA men's basketball rankings with an 8-0 record.

...QB Aaron Rodgers still owns the Chicago Bears. Rodgers is 25-5 against the Bears for his career.

...The Green Bay Packers now have 784 all-time wins — most in league history and one more than Chicago. The Bears and Packers have played 206 times, with Chicago leading the series since 1921.

Oregon, North Carolina to meet in Holiday Bowl

SAN DIEGO — Oregon will face North Carolina in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28, the first football game to be played at Petco Park, organizers announced Sunday.

After the New Year’s Six bowls, the Holiday Bowl gets the second selection among Pac-12 Conference teams following the Alamo Bowl. The Holiday Bowl is in a group with the Cheez-It Bowl and Gator Bowl that have the first picks among Atlantic Coast Conference teams following the New Year’s Six bowls.

The game will be the 43rd edition of the Holiday Bowl and first since 2019. The 2020 game was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. UCLA withdrew from the 2021 game hours before the planned opening kickoff “due to COVID-19 protocols within the Bruins' program,” according to the university.

Organizers had sought a replacement for UCLA, but they were unable to find one.

This will be the first time an ACC team has played in the Holiday Bowl. Under an agreement announced in 2019, the ACC will supply a team for the game at least through 2025. The agreement was supposed to begin with the 2020 game.

The Ducks will be playing in the Holiday Bowl for the fourth time and first since 2008 when they defeated Oklahoma State 42-31.

Oregon (9-3) lost its season opener to Georgia

49-3, won its next eight games, then lost two of its next three, including a 38-34 loss to rival Oregon State in its regular-season finale Nov. 26. The Ducks were 15th in The Associated Press poll released Sunday. The Tar Heels were unranked.

North Carolina (9-4) has lost three consecutive games, including a 39-10 loss to Clemson Saturday night in the ACC Football Championship Game

The game will be played at Petco Park under an amendment to a joint agreement with the San Diego Padres approved by the City Council in July 2021, overturning a previ-

ous ban on football at the downtown baseball stadium.

The Padres announced a partnership with the San Diego Bowl Game Association in 2021 allowing the Holiday Bowl to be played at Petco Park for a minimum of the next five years, dependent on City Council approval.

The sale of SDCCU Stadium — where the Holiday Bowl had been played since its inaugural edition in 1978 through 2019 — to San Diego State University in 2020, and its demolition to make way for a west campus and Snapdragon Stadium, left the bowl game without a home.

DA: No charges in rape case

REGION — A group of former San Diego State University football players — including ex-Buffalo Bills punter Matt Araiza — will not face criminal charges for the alleged gang rape of a teenage girl at a house party last year, it was announced today.

The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday that its review of the allegations against Araiza, Zavier Leonard and Nowlin “Pa’a’’ Ewaliko did not support criminal charges.

The men remain defendants in a civil lawsuit alleging the then-17-yearold victim was heavily intoxicated while raped by the men at an off-campus party in October of 2021.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, its investigation included meeting with the alleged victim, as well as an analysis of the evidence by sexual assault experts, prosecutors, and other investigators. Witness interviews, sexual assault exam results, DNA evidence, cell phone and video evidence were analyzed during the investigation.

Prosecutors said the review examined the possibility of criminal charges for a variety of offenses, including statutory rape, forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, rape by intoxication, and oral copulation by intoxication. The DA’s Office also noted there was no recommendation from the police department to file criminal charges when prosecutors received the case in August.

“Ultimately, prosecutors determined it is clear the evidence does not support the filing of criminal charges and there is no path to a potential criminal conviction,’’ the office said in a statement.

“Prosecutors can only file charges when they ethically believe they can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.’’

Araiza was cut from the Bills two days after the lawsuit against him was filed. Dubbed the “Punt God” for the accuracy and distance of his kicking, the San Diego native and Rancho Bernardo High School graduate was drafted by the Bills in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL draft. Leonard and Ewaliko were also subsequently removed from the team’s roster.

According to the lawsuit, the teen — identified as Jane Doe — attended a Halloween party on Oct.

Don’t mess with … Massachusetts? small talk

Enjoy one from the archives.

There are, of course, so many reasons to love living in laidback Southern California, but I began to appreciate it from an entirely different perspective after my son moved to Boston for college.

I do love Boston, love to visit it, but the state of Massachusetts is one tough cookie. The lawmakers there simply brook no nonsense, mister, and haven’t since colonial times.

If you’re in Mass., you had better mind your P’s and Q’s, be prepared to toe the line and take the consequences of your actions, and I don’t mean maybe.

The first thing I heard about was the brothel law, which allegedly prohibits sorority houses because groups of women, living together, is just suspicious.

The actual zoning code law says no more than four unrelated students, of any sex, may share an apartment or house.

No actual mention is made of brothels. But still, no monkey business, missy.

My son also learned there is no option for traffic school in Massachu-

setts. If you are foolish enough to get a citation, you will just have to wear that scarlet letter on your driving record for all the world to see — and use to raise your policy rates.

However, you don’t need to carry proof of insurance in your car. Your registration is proof. I rather like that one.

Much of their attitude apparently stems from when they were one of the original 13 colonies, and apparently there hasn’t been time to clean up some of those older laws on the books.

Be aware that there is still no hunting on Sundays, and many cities and counties observe “blue laws” that prohibit the sale of liquor on Sundays.

In addition, witches are still banned from Massachusetts and it was illegal to be an atheist or to “reproach God” there.

It is illegal to give beer to hospital patients, eat more than three sandwiches at a wake or use tomatoes in the production of clam chowder.

You’d best just watch your mouth and your manners, young man. If you can’t control yourself, you’ll end up living in New York.

Jean Gillette may have eaten more than three sandwiches in Boston. No, wait — they were cannolis and they were delicious. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

Holidays a time for traditions

jano’s garden

jano nightingale

An orange in the bottom of the Christmas stocking. A simple, yet heartfelt gift for four children who, in 1960, were not expecting much from their parents who were in the military.

But in the cold town of Racine, Wisconsin, oranges were hard to come by, and they looked forward to them each year.

Chris Bany, now a Southern Californian, continued, “But we did go on to create a hardy Hungarian Christmas dinner including dumplings and Chicken Paprikash.”

We all have family memories of holiday traditions this time of year and mine started out in the kitchen of my grandmother’s house.

A MEMORY OF GINGERBREAD COOKIES

The family tradition of baking gingerbread cookies to hang on the tree started with my Dutch grandmother, Edna VanDenBerg. It seems that cooks of many nationalities have made gingerbread, but she was our go-to baker for all things sweet and delicious.

The recipe that my family has referred to time and time again is from the original “Joy of Cooking,” by Irma Rombauer. I still have my mother’s edition from 1971, which is wellworn and used on a monthly basis.

My son and I still make these cookies each year, and since we have lived in California, we have invited his friends to join us.

An added touch to the original recipe is to purchase ornament hooks, in the smallest size, to poke into the top of the gingerbread man’s head, so you can hang them on a tree or wreath.

Also, shop for candy decorations before baking. I use Red Hots or raisins, for eyes and buttons, because they don’t melt. After cook-

ies cool, you can decorate with white frosting in a piping bag.

GINGERBREAD MEN (OR WOMEN)

Recipe adapted from “Joy of Cooking.”

For best results dough should be refrigerated before baking.

This recipe can be mixed in food processor or large mixer. Makes 10 cookies, recipe can be doubled.

• Blend until creamy — ½ c. butter, ½ c. brown sugar

• Beat in — ½ c. dark molasses

• Sift together in separate bowl — 3½ c. white flour, 1 tsp. each cinnamon, ginger and cloves, ½ tsp. salt

• Add the sifted ingredients to the butter mixture in three parts, alternating with ¼ c. water until stiff dough forms.

• Remove from bowl, shape into large ball and refrigerate for at least one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

• After dough has cooled, place on floured wax paper and roll into ¼-inch slab. Place cookie cutters on slab, cutting out cookies as needed and place on cookie sheet, sprayed with cooking oil spray. Before baking, place the Red Hots candy on cookies for decoration. Be sure to place the ornament hooks at top of head before baking as well.

• Bake for 8-9 minutes, checking frequently. Cookies should feel hard to the touch. Allow to cool completely and decorate with white frosting.

ent, “including defendants Leonard and Ewaliko.’’

• Cookies will last, if not eaten, for over a month if stored in a metal cookie tin or hung on your tree! Gingerbread men make wonderful gifts, wrapped in a special metal tin. Enjoy!

HANUKKAH TRADITION

Each family celebrates their own holiday traditions, and my former husband’s family celebrated Hanukkah in the Jewish tradition.

I asked my son which foods he remembered from the Hanukkah feast, and he replied, “Matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, brisket and the gelt.”

Now, gelt is not really a food, but chocolate coins covered in gold paper. The tradition of hunting for “the gelt” in the house was one that my son and his cousins looked forward to with glee.

Maybe finding the gelt was similar to my friend Chris’ tradition of finding an orange in his stocking. A gift that did not cost a great deal but was held in joyful anticipation each year by the children in the family.

17 with three friends at a house where Araiza lived.

The suit alleges Araiza “could observe that Doe was heavily intoxicated’’ but handed her a drink, which the complaint says contained not just alcohol, but also “other intoxicating substances.’’

It also alleges Doe informed Araiza that she was attending high school at the time.

The suit alleges Araiza led her to the side yard of the house and had sex with her, then took her to a bedroom where at least three other men were pres -

She was thrown onto a bed and multiple men raped her over the course of 90 minutes while she “went in and out of consciousness,’’ the lawsuit alleges.

The teen said she reported the incident to police the following day.

Jane Doe’s attorney, Dan Gilleon, wrote on Twitter that he was not surprised by the district attorney’s decision.

“I am never surprised when a prosecutor does not file sexual assault charges when the victim was intoxicated,’’ Gilleon wrote. “It’s a very rare case where the

criminal justice system achieves anything satisfactory for the victim of a sexual assault.

Prosecutors cannot file charges unless they can get a unanimous decision (by a jury) who cannot vote to convict unless they’re convinced beyond any reasonable doubt.

“The lawsuit we filed is not in the criminal justice system. It’s a different ball game here. The victim is represented and the focus is on the harm defendants caused her.

“It is only in the civil system that a victim of sexual assault can get justice, and we plan to do just that.’’

CITY OF ENCINITAS DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT 505 S. Vulcan Avenue Encinitas, CA 92024

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT PERIOD: DECEMBER 9, 2022 TO FEBRUARY 6, 2023

REPORT

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a 60-day public review and comment period has been established pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) which has been prepared for the proposed project as identified below, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15087. During the public review period, the Draft EIR will be available for review on the City’s website at www. encinitasca.gov/I-Want-To/Public-Notices/Development-Services-Public-Notices under “Environmental Notices” and at the Planning Division of the Development Services Department, City of Encinitas, 505 S. Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024.

PROJECT NAME: PIRAEUS POINT; CASE NUMBERS: (MULTI-005158-2022; CDP005161-2022; DR-005160-2022; SUB 005159-2022; and SUB-005391-2022); APPLICANT: Lennar Homes of California, LLC; LOCATION: NE corner of Piraeus Street and Plato Place, Encinitas, CA 92024; County Assessor Parcel No. (APN) 254-144-01-00; DESCRIP-

TION: Lennar Homes of California, LLC (applicant) proposes the development of a 149-home residential townhome community on an approximately 6.88-acre site in the City of Encinitas. The project site is identified as one of the 15 sites included in the City of Encinitas General Plan Housing Element Update, adopted by the City on March 13, 2019. On October 8, 2019, the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) certified the 2013-2021 Housing Element. On April 17, 2021, the City adopted the 2021-2029 Housing Element. Pursuant to the Encinitas Municipal Code, that a minimum of 134 units could be accommodated on the subject site, at a density of 25 units per net acre. The community would consist of 52 one-bedroom homes, 37 two-bedroom homes, and 60 three-bedroom homes for a total of 149 residential homes, which would be built within 16 separate three-story residential buildings. Of the 149 residential homes, 134 would be market-rate homes and 15 would be “very low” (50 percent of area median income) affordable residential homes. A total of 271 parking spaces are planned, including private garage spaces and outdoor shared parking. Proposed amenities include a pool, spa, pool house, and lounge seating. An approximately 0.25 acre area of Plato Place and 0.71 acres along Piraeus Street, adjacent to the project boundary, would be vacated to accommodate the development. Finally, APN 216-110-3500, immediately north of the project site, would be preserved in perpetuity and left in its current undeveloped state to mitigate the project’s biological impacts.

The Draft EIR concludes that the project would not result in significant environmental impacts with the incorporation of mitigation measures for air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology and soils (paleontology), noise, tribal cultural resources, and wildfire. Based on the EIR analysis, transportation impacts related to vehicles-miles-traveled cannot be mitigated to less than significant levels. Therefore, transportation impacts are significant and unavoidable.

The site is not included on any list under Government Code section 65962.5.

A 60-day public review and comment period has been established from December 9, 2022 to February 6, 2023. All written comments on the Draft EIR should be clearly itemized and focus on the sufficiency of the document in identifying and analyzing the possible impacts on the environment and ways in which the significant effects of the project might be avoided or mitigated.

Comments on the DEIR must be received no later than February 6, 2023 at 5:00 p.m This DEIR can also be reviewed at the Encinitas Library (540 Cornish Dr, Encinitas, CA 92024), and the Cardiff-by-the-Sea Library (2081 Newcastle Ave, Cardiff, CA 92007). For additional information, please contact Nick Koutoufidis at (760) 633-2692 or by email at nkoutoufidis@encinitasca.gov

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS:

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

either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call the number shown below in BOLD, using the REF number assigned to this case on SHOWN ABOVE. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust.

Carlsbad OKs first civilian police board

Panel to help build trust with Carlsbad Police

CARLSBAD — The City Council approved the city’s first Community-Police Engagement Commission during its Dec. 6 meeting, the result of a two-year process aimed at strengthening the relationship between the Carlsbad Police Department and residents.

The five-member commission will not oversee nor direct the policies of the police department. Instead, the group will help build trust and engagement with the community, according to Carlsbad assistant city attorney Allegra Frost.

“The primary duty is community engagement, not oversight,” Frost said.

However, the commission’s specific duties, besides improving transparency and engagement between police and residents, still need to be clarified.

The council approved the item, 4-0, with Mayor Matt Hall absent.

Council members may

appoint qualified residents to serve on the board if they meet specific requirements. According to Frost, candidates must be open-mind ed and lack actual or perceived biases. In addition, members must demonstrate a record of community involvement and attend the Police Citizens Academy twice a year.

Once on the commission, members will undergo training on law enforcement policies, including the use of force and implicit bias. Members will also participate in two ride-aalongs with police, including at least one trip with the Homeless Outreach Team.

“We will continue to build upon relationships,” said Carlsbad Police Chief Mickey Williams. “Fortunately, we have a community that supports us.”

The journey toward the commission’s origins began in 2020 during the Black Lives Matter movement in response to the killing of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.

Over the past two years, the Carlsbad Equality Coalition, North County Civil Liberties Coalition and local NAACP discussed the creation of a civilian commission in partnership with the Carlsbad Police Department.

Aly Vredenburgh, president of the Carlsbad Equality Coalition, said the outcome and support from the council is a great sign moving forward. The local coalition, led by former president Keyrollos Ibrahim, helped negotiate the commission, and the effort continued under Vreden-

burgh.

Vredenburgh said the commission’s functions would become more evident once the board is seated. Still, it’s a significant first step for the city and its residents.

Mayor-elect Keith Blackburn admitted initially resisting the idea but grew more comfortable as he witnessed the maturity and humility of those working to establish the commission.

“This has my full support,” Blackburn said. “It is extremely important that every police department has accountability. There is a lot of confusion about this commission, but it’s not about attacking police. We have a fantastic chief who is transparent and open. This will only help make our community safer.”

The problem with drinking and driving is the MOURNING after.

opts for a weighted vote for specific items.

In Carlsbad, Mayor Matt Hall, who has been the city’s representative for over 10 years, is retiring and Councilman Keith Blackburn will serve as the next mayor, leaving his District 2 seat vacant. Blackburn’s replacement may determine whether the city puts forth a Republican or Democratic representative on the SANDAG board.

In Vista, Dan O’Donnell appears to have won the District 4 seat, giving the Vista City Council a Democratic majority and increasing the likelihood a Democrat representative is named to the board.

Ikhrata under fire

The political shift comes amidst ongoing tensions between the board and CEO Hasan Ikhrata, who told the San Diego Union-Tribune he may leave if the board cannot focus on its goals to reduce cars on the road, meet state-mandated greenhouse gas emissions reductions and implement SANDAG’s $172 billion Regional Transportation Plan.

“I want to make sure the board, regardless if they’re Republican or Democrat, doesn’t spend every single meeting asking for me to be fired or fighting with each other,” Ikhrata told the Union-Tribune. “I want to see civility and feel that we’re making a difference.”

Ikhrata has faced increased scrutiny and criticism in recent months after damaging financial findings were released in a series of reports by Independent Performance Auditor Mary Khoshmashrab.

Khoshmashrab found numerous issues with SANDAG’s finances, including hundreds of thousands of dollars reportedly misspent by Ikhrata and many others using company credit cards.

Audit independence

tried” to get involved as the committee was drafting its new proposal, inewsource reports.

In a series of emails obtained by inewsource, Audit Committee chairman David Zito, of Solana Beach, gave notice that Blakespear didn’t want SANDAG staff working on changes until they had received full board support. Blakespear attempted to create a subcommittee to lead talks, similar to how the board handled the matter last year.

Khoshmashrab said Blakespear’s attempt to interfere would “disrupt standard practice.”

“I believe the pathway we discussed at the (Audit Committee) and agreed upon, and the process that stands here at SANDAG is still the most appropriate way,” Khoshmashrab wrote in an email obtained by inewsource. “I would ask that Blakespear not interfere with that process. As I shared in the past, elections have no place in this process.”

In an email to Zito, Stewart Halpern, a member of the public serving on the Audit Committee, criticized Blakespear and claimed that board leadership’s “apparent fear of an independent Audit Committee has intruded yet again.”

Halpern questioned whether Blakespear’s proposal was “more of (another) effort to engineer the outcome than it is to make genuine progress,” inewsource reported.

“We’ve literally had years of disregard and what I believe can be objectively characterized as subversion from Board leadership,” Halpern wrote.

In a recent podcast interview, Blakespear, who was recently elected to the state legislature, denied reports of “waste, fraud and abuse” at SANDAG.

In loving memory of Debra Marie Zomparelli, of Oceanside, passed away Nov. 30, 2022, after a prolonged illness. She was 67.

She is survived by her sister, Wendy Zomparelli.

Wendy wishes to thank Richelle Hazlett and Debbie’s many loving friends for their care and support in recent years.

Following Debbie’s wishes, her ashes will be scattered at sea by Telophase Cremation Society.

Friends may see the boat from the Tunaman’s Memorial in Shoreline Park at 11:45 a.m. on Friday, January 6, weather permitting.

Donations may be made to the San Diego Humane Society.

We’ve all heard, “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.” Since we think of you as our friends and neighbors, we’d like to remind you that a designated driver will help you be around to celebrate for many more years...not just this year’s holiday season!

In an effort to gain independence from the board, the agency’s Audit Committee, consisting of elected officials and members of the public, will recommend changing how its members are selected and establishing three-year terms to avoid coinciding with elections.

The committee’s proposal has created tensions between board leadership and committee members after former board chair Catherine Blakespear “may have

“So many of the things that came out from the audit report are improvements that should be made, but they don’t show any actual wrongdoing,” Blakespear said. “There isn’t waste, fraud and abuse — there are processes that should be improved. So I think this is a difficult period at SANDAG, but we must have a high-functioning agency that can serve every city in this county.”

However, Khoshmashrab’s recent internal audits also found improper severance payments, $1.8 million in uncollected toll fees and $290 million in questionable contract increases.

The Senior Volunteer Patrol of the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station performs home vacation security checks, assists with traffic control, enforces disabled parking regulations, patrols neighborhoods, schools, parks and shopping centers and visits homebound seniors who live alone for the communities of Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar.& portions of the county’s unincorporated areas.

Missing San Marcos teen returns safe

SAN MARCOS — A 13-year-old girl from San Marcos is safely back home with her family after being missing for 11 days, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department reported Friday, Dec. 2.

Sofia Nicole Corbisiero left her San Marcos home on foot on the evening of Nov. 20 following an argument with her mother and was reported as an at-risk missing juvenile.

News of her disappearance garnered significant attention on social media.

A week and a half after leaving, Corbisiero called her mother last Friday afternoon to tell her she was coming home. The department thanked the public for their assistance.

“We appreciate the public and media’s help in keeping an eye out for Sofia,” Lt. Kevin Ralph said. “She is currently safe with her family.”

On the night she left, Corbisiero was seen via camera footage at the Oceanside Transportation Center with another individual.

Ralph said the department did not have information about where Corbisiero had been during the time she was missing.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, Corbisiero was believed to be a voluntary runaway and familiar with public transportation, including the Coaster and Sprinter. She was known to frequent downtown Oceanside and Carlsbad Village.

said when asked if SANDAG needed to do more to earn back the public’s trust.

“SANDAG’s entire experience around its auditor has not matured. I hope there can be less of a ‘gotcha’ regarding the things coming out of the audit and this idea that there’s malfeasance — even though there’s not. So many of the things that came out from the audit report are improvements that should be made, but they don’t show any actual wrongdoing.

“There isn’t waste, fraud and abuse — there are processes that should be improved. So I think this is a difficult period at SANDAG, but we must have a high-functioning agency that can serve every city in this county.”

Blakespear was honored for eight years of service on the Encinitas City Council, including four years as mayor, during a Nov. 29 ceremony at City Hall.

“It really truly is the honor of my lifetime to serve as mayor of Encinitas,” Blakespear said.

Philosopher John Locke observed:

“New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.”

This jumped to mind as three headlines popped up over 12 hours:

• The La Jolla Playhouse is presenting a production of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” featuring a cast of trans, non-binary and queer performers. A celebration of the limitless possibilities of love, the playhouse is hoping to appeal to a whole new audience.

• Virgin Atlantic no longer requires women flight attendants to wear makeup. Women crew members can wear pants; men can wear skirts.

• Previously homophobic Bhutan is seeing LGBTQ acceptance grow.

Furthermore, Rep.elect Robert Garcia of Long Beach is now the first LGBTQ+ immigrant elected to Congress. Have we got a full-blown revolution on our hands?

Ritika Wadhwa, COO of London’s Cultural Intelligence Center, observed such changes mean “we can just get down to work, to bringing our unique perspective to the table and actually do what we were

Rancho Coastal Humane Society ready for face-lift

ENCINITAS — The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is ready to start digging things up and knocking things down….really…. like knocking things down with a bulldozer….so it can step into the future.

Groundbreaking on renovations is 11 a.m. Dec. 15. The public is invited.

For 62 years, RCHS served people and animals from “the little yellow house” at 389 Requeza St.

“The dirt path that ran behind the shelter became Interstate 5. The pastures that surrounded RCHS are now filled with houses, businesses, churches and a hospital. A community grew up around us,” said spokesman John Van Zante.

“Now it’s our time to catch up so we can continue to serve.”

For more information on the planned renovations at Rancho Coastal Humane Society or to contribute to the facility’s capital campaign, visit rchumanesociety.org/capital-campaign.

In other words, what someone’s wearing means nothing more than a fashion choice. There’s now increasing focus on the talent people bring to each situation and the services they provide.

Truth be told, when I go shopping I neither know nor care if the cashier is gay, straight or somewhere in between. I just want to buy my gallon of milk (or whatever) and be on my way.

And seeing these headlines in such proximity suggests a wider movement to caring more about someone’s talent rather than their personal lives.

By the way, Virgin Atlantic’s job applications have DOUBLED since the airline changed its dress code. That’s worth considering for organizations having trouble hiring good people.

My daughter’s generation has grown up accepting people for who they are, rather than the labels society gave them.

And I’ll confess to sometimes being confused as He became She or They. Yet why is it a bad thing?

Because regardless of what you sell, your objectives yesterday, today and tomorrow are simple: Make more, sell more and have good people on your team to service your customers. Deliver value and quality at a fair price. The rest is a distraction.

It’s like Bob Dylan sang 60 years ago: The times they are a-changin’.

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

Affordable internet improves lives, according to survey

According to a recent report from Cox, conducted by a third-party research firm, customers enrolled in the federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and/or use Cox’s Connect2Compete (C2C) service are experiencing significant positive impacts to their careers, their children’s education and to the continuing education of the adults in their household.

Cox’s long-standing commitment to narrowing the digital divide began 20 years ago with Connect2Compete for families with K-12 children. Today, Cox is proudly administering the Federal Government’s ACP program to deliver financial relief to customers and recently launched a new low-cost solution ideal for veterans, senior citizens, and Americans with disabilities, called ConnectAssist. C2C and ConnectAssist customers can receive free internet when the ACP benefit is applied.

Key findings from the October 2022 report, which surveyed more than 2,000 customers, found:

• About half of them have home internet for the first time

• 70% credit home internet for finding a new or better job

• Half said they got a promotion or a pay increase

• 90% said they are now doing homework at home

• Half said they are now able to apply to college and apply for financial aid

• Half said they have gotten certified in a specific skill or trade

• One third reported they are a first-generation college graduate in their

family as a result of home internet

• 90% of households say Cox internet access has had a positive impact on their children’s education

• Customers used grateful, relieved, blessed to describe having internet for the first time

Findings from respondents from the West (California, Arizona, Nevada and Idaho) include:

• 90% of households say Cox internet access has had a positive impact on their children’s education

• 78% of respondents indicate Cox internet access has had a positive impact on the career of people in the household

• 67% of households state Cox internet access has had a positive impact on the continuing education efforts of the adults in the home

“Internet access at

home is an important service to earn a quality education and to meet one’s professional goals,” said Mark Greatrex, president of Cox Communications.

“This research shows how our customers’ lives are bettered by having an affordable internet connection at home. We’re fully committed to our digital equity efforts and empowering more people to get connected and thrive in today’s world.”

Of the positive impacts that stem from Cox internet access, 93% of ACP and C2C customers indicate they’re able to pay their bills on time more easily, and 95% of C2C customers say it provides a way for their family to spend more time together.

One ACP customer said, “I absolutely love it. I am so happy to get a discount, it helps me tremendously because I am a widow and live on Social Security.”

Additionally, nine out of 10 ACP and C2C customers say Cox internet allows their children to access educational resources, do homework and participate in remote learning, and it better enables the adult(s) in the household to communicate with the child’s teacher.

“I was unable to afford internet service prior to this opportunity,” said a Cox customer using C2C service. “My daughter couldn’t to do her homework at home, and I was unable to take her to the public library.”

The 2022 Cox Digital Equity Research report was based on a survey of Cox customers enrolled in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and/or Connect2Compete (C2C) services.

New Year’s food traditions

Here’s the question: What holiday traditions are alive in your home for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day that relate to food?

J.M. — I have no reason for my father making eggs after midnight. He may have just been hungry. If he did explain, I don’t remember.

L.L. — Black-eyed peas and collard greens for luck and fortune.

A.U. — Twelve grapes

at midnight to symbolize 12 prosperous months ahead!

A.Z. — My grandmother used to throw a New Year’s Day party — a big cold spread with different salads (potato, egg, macaroni) and cold cuts, all things that were made ahead of time and just put out the day of.

J.W. — Pork and sauerkraut! Every New Year’s Day. It’s a German tradition.

Encinitas celebrates 60th Holiday Parade

ENCINITAS — The city of Encinitas celebrated its 60th Holiday Parade over the weekend, transforming South Coast Highway 101 into a winter wonderland to kick off the Christmas season.

The popular annual event maintained its hyper-local ambiance this year with the theme “Classic Encinitas, featuring dazzling floats and impressive classic cars.

However, the stars of the event were the residents representing local organizations, businesses, clubs and schools who could be seen walking, biking, roller skating and skateboarding down the street.

Hundreds of residents set up camp on either side of Coast Highway to view the parade as it traveled from D Street to J street, with some enjoying food and beverages at local eateries and others experiencing it up close from blankets and chairs on the road.

“What I like about it is the small town thing — you feel like you know people coming down the parade. If you’ve lived here long enough, your kid has probably walked in the parade at some point,” said Clint O’Connor, an Encinitas resident of over 25 years.

This year’s parade participants included the local chapter of Moms Demand Action, Encinitas Sasquatch Association, La Costa Canyon High School marching band, and Express Soccer Club, among many others.

Elected officials, including Rep. Mike Levin

and Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath, also walked in the event with their supporters.

Before the start of the parade, residents also got to experience a tree-lighting and Santa Claus meetand-greet in the Lumberyard plaza.

Started in 1957, the Holiday Parade was originally called “Saint Nicks

Parade” and was held on 3rd Street.

Warren Raps, a longtime Encinitas resident, was grand marshal of this year’s parade. Raps replaces the late Earl Flores, known to audiences as Earl the Catholic Cowboy, who served as grand marshal last year.

Flores passed away in February.

Winter Wonderland on the shore of Lake San Marcos

Emily DeVries is on ice skates for the first time and predictably, it’s not easy.

The 9-year-old San Marcos resident is employing a child-sized walker to help keep herself upright. Her friend Mia Bugge, who has skated a few times more than Emily, is also trying to help. “It’s challenging,” says Emily, who has been at it for about 20 minutes.

The girls and their parents have come out on this crisp December night to enjoy Winter Wonderland, a holiday event staged by the Lakehouse Hotel and Resort at Lake San Marcos.

“This is a fun holiday activity,” says Michael DeVries as he watches his daughter slip and slide

across the rink.

“I think they did a wonderful job with the decorating,” says Alexis Bugge, Mia’s mom. “I’m impressed.” Besides the (faux) ice skating rink, Winter Wonderland offers a North Pole train; hayride around the Lake San Marcos neighborhood to see the lights; a giant Christ-

mas tree; stars and ornaments scattered around the grounds; a light tunnel; hot food, sweet treats and cocoa; adult beverages served in flashing, plastic snowballs; lots of lights; and at certain times, crafts for kids and visits with Santa.

“I’ve been seeing (the ads) for probably a month and I came last Thursday,” says

Gifts for seniors with everything

Seniors have acquired so much ‘stuff’ over the years that we have nearly everything we need ... and more.

If you’ve held off buying a gift for a senior in your life because you don’t know what to get someone who already has everything, here are a few gift ideas that would be most welcome.

• Coupons for cab rides or gift certificates for restaurant meals, laundry services, auto detailing, spa day or

hair salon services.

• Gift basket created especially for your seniors, such as gourmet food, cheese, jams or chocolate. Or, consider a subscription to a quarterly or monthly gift club — from fruit baskets or flowers to bacon, coffee and cigars.

• Pay for a year of cable TV, the daily newspaper, magazine subscription or Netflix.

• Two tickets to a play or other event where you’ll

accompany your senior or a pair of movie passes so your senior can take a friend.

• Pay for a senior’s lifelong learning class at the senior center.

• Put together a box of useful things, like stamps, note cards, address labels, batteries, razor blades and calendar with large print.

• Make single serving meals for the freezer.

What do seniors really want most? The gift of your time.

Victoria Wood of Elfin Forest, as she and her family enjoyed burgers and other fare around a fire pit on the Lakehouse grounds. “This is their first time. I love Christmas movies and I feel like I’m in a Christmas movie. This has a small-town feel.”

Sherri Dolan, a Carlsbad realtor, admits her flashing-snowball cocktail was a bit of a splurge, but after all, it’s the holidays. “I just came from the Leo Carrillo (Ranch Historic Park) tree lighting ceremony,” she says with a high level of enthusiasm. “This area has a great vibe. I’d like to live here.”

For those who want to celebrate the holidays or anything else with up to eight friends and/or family members, there are “glowing igloos,” which can be rented for two hours. The

$400 cost includes a seasonal charcuterie board, dessert platter (serves eight) and two bottles of wine.

Briana Wilhite of Palm Desert found this the perfect way to celebrate her wedding with seven friends “from my different walks of life,” as well as the birthday of one of these friends. The group was seated on pillows around a low table, sharing

laughs, stories and food and wine.

This is the first year the Lakehouse has staged Winter Wonderland, located on the shore of Lake San Marcos. The event is open 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday-Sunday through Dec. 15; and daily 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dec. 16-Jan. 1, excluding some dates. Check schedule or call 760744-0120.

come from far and wide to buy from the Queen.

The staff has been with Queen Eileen for decades and shares her passion for providing a fun, engaging shopping experience.

Another great thing about Queen Eileen’s is the ever changing products available, every visit will be a unique experience which makes going back on a regular basis essential for any visit you make to downtown Encinitas. And do you want

to know Encinitas’ best kept fashion secret? Their warehouse behind the store is full of products for their wholesale business, Bali Queen, at unbelievable prices. It is amazing stuff that Eileen hand selects on her travels around the world. You have to ask to go back there, but it’s definitely worth the trek across the alley.

For over 30 years, Queen Eileen’s has been the one store in Encinitas that reflects the heart and soul and the rich, funky history of this slice of paradise called Encinitas. Owner Eileen Burke or, Queen Eileen as she is known around town, grew up primarily in Encinitas attending San Dieguito High, hanging at Stone Steps and sold vintage

ferent place then, but those early years shaped Eileen and enabled her to score her prime loca-

tion on Coast Highway in the heart of Encinitas and what a fabulous store it is. Recent store renovations led to the discovery of a vintage Coca-Cola sign within the wall of the store.

The sign features the Coca-Cola “Sprite Boy,” a character that appeared in Coca-Cola advertisements from 1942 until 1958.

Based on historical records, the location was a hardware store in 1947, and some think it might have previously been a drugstore with a soda fountain, hence the sign.

So next time you are looking for that one-of-akind gift that you won’t find in any chain store, make Queen Eileen’s your first stop, you will be happy you did!

Make a dreidel decoration and treat container

By Donna Erickson During Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights, children play a traditional game with a dreidel, a four-sided Hanukkah top.

decoratio.

What you need: • 1 half-pint clean and dry cardboard milk carton or a small, square box • Stapler • Tempera, acrylic paints • Markers and pencil • Decorating materials such as colored tissue, foil, paper strips, glitter, fabric scraps • Household glue

Here’s the fun: Place the supplies on a

newspaper-covered table.

If you are making the dreidel to be used as a gift box, put some tissue paper

inside the milk carton or box. Then tuck the gift in the tissue paper.

If you’re using a milk carton, carefully staple shut the spout of the carton and paint it, covering it completely. Let dry.

Turn the carton upside down, and use the marker or paint in squeeze bottles to write a different Hebrew letter on each of the four sides. They begin the Hebrew words that mean “a great miracle happened here.”

Go to www.holidays. net/chanukah/dreidel.html to see how to write the letters. You’ll also be able to read the words to the song, hear the melody and play the game.

Decorate the carton or box. If you’re using a carton, poke a pencil through the bottom so that the decoration looks like a top. (If there is a gift inside, be sure to poke carefully!)

If you’re using a box, poke the pencil all the way through it and out the other end.

Silvergate San Marcos wins 2023 Caring Star Award

SAN MARCOS — December 23, 2022 — Silvergate San Marcos proudly announces the retirement community’s received the prestigious 2023 Caring Star Award for outstanding care in senior living by Caring.com, a leading senior living referral service and the nation’s top site for retirement community reviews. This is the third award for excellence that Silvergate has garnered in the last year, including one from SeniorAdvisor. com and San Diego Union Tribune whose readers cast their votes for “Favorite” in the region.

"We strive daily to provide the highest quality care and services for our residents, and this award validates our delivery on that promise,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director of Silvergate San Marcos. "Silvergate is one of only two community in San Marcos to win this award. Our 25 years of experience in caring for seniors, the longevity of our staff, our hands-on local ownership, and the outstanding care we offer are all reasons why we continue to be recognized by organizations like Car-

ing.com. On behalf of our community staff and leadership, we want to thank those who shared positive feedback about us.”

Online review sites help Americans research and select the best senior living communities. Seniors and their families often turn to the internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among senior living communities in their area. They rely on these peer perspectives as much as personal recommendations from friends, geriatric professionals and medical personnel.

“Congratulations to Silvergate San Marcos for being among these highly-rated communities achieving such significant praise from their customers in online reviews,” Caring.com’s CEO, Jim Rosenthal said. “They stand out as being among the best and most experienced in senior living care in the nation.”

To be considered for the award, Caring Stars communities meet a set of criteria based on ratings and reviews from senior living residents and their family members. Some of the positive feedback that led to

Silvergate San Marcos being named a Caring Star of 2023 includes:

“We recently moved our 96-year-old Mother into Silvergate San Marcos. Mom didn’t want to move, but she agreed to. While she was still at her home, she was saying that she was ready ‘to go’. After a week at Silvergate, she is saying she has a new lease on life and thinks she can make it to 100!” said Debi Van Doren, whose mother resides at Silvergate and recently left touching online review about the community. “I stayed with her at Silvergate to help get her settled and I am very impressed. Everyone that works there is very kind and compassionate, it feels like a family. The food is delicious and there are always activities to fill the day. Thanks to Silvergate for creating such a caring, nurturing environment.”

“We are proud to be among the top family-rated communities and care providers in the nation,” said David Nelson, Marketing Director for the community. “The bar for standards had been raised this year, and we knew only the best

communities would be recognized this award season. We are overjoyed by all the positive feedback we received online, and very proud of our amazing team of nurses, caregivers, and administrators who rose to the occasion by providing such great quality of care to our residents and their families.”

About Silvergate San Marcos

Located in a serene setting within the city of San Marcos, Silvergate is a full-service retirement community offering independent living, assisted living or memory care. As a senior living community with a broad spectrum of care, and decades of experience in the industry, Silvergate is proud to have been recognized for its superior service levels and for making a difference in the lives of seniors right here in San Diego County.

A different approach to learning with Nancy Eggert

Educational consultant Nancy Eggert M.A.’s passion is to help students who have fallen behind in school catch up with their peers.

Having trained with experts in cognitive sensory processing, Eggert has worked with children in special education courses for more than a decade. In that time, she has been able to pull students back to grade level and help them reach their basic skills within 60 to 80 hours.

Nearly 22% of the population learns differently than the rest. This is where Eggert comes into play with a multisensory approach that differs from the average lesson plan.

In linguistics for example, Eggert focuses on teaching her students to read with sound rather than teaching them by individual letters or words.

“If a child is behind, that means there could be

something not working between the page and the brain or the eyes,” Eggert said. “If they can’t pick it up from the page, you can teach them the sound.”

According to Eggert, she can help students with dyslexia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, language de-

lays and attention issues who need specialized education.

Many of her students have fallen behind because of missing school due to illness, and a growing number of her students were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.

In her program, Eggert

evaluates her students’ needs and keeps parents informed about their progress. In just a few sessions, parents and students will notice a difference.

Eggert sees her students as the future leaders of this world. Along with helping her students learn how to process information, she also hopes to instill a sense of leadership in her students by connecting them to history. She is a relative of Daniel Boone, an 18th century American pioneer and folk hero.

Eggert has plans to go nationwide with her Boone Pioneer Education Foundation. This foundation is named to keep our pioneer history alive for children and America Strong. Those who want to support this foundation as well as parents who are interested in enrolling their child can call 619-227-1664 or email booneteach1@gmail.com.

SURF CATS

I’m not sure who was the first surfer to be compared to a cat, but it now seems obvious.

Ever since the early ’60s when Miki Dora slinked from Malibu shadows, and later endorsed a surfboard model called “Da Cat” and built by Dora’s friend, Greg Noll, I have heard of surfers being called cats. (Surf dogs are far less common, with Pipeline legend Rory Russel singularly holding down the moniker.)

David Nuuhiwa, who in the late teens was sleek, quick, agile, aware as moving water, and barely seemed to touch his board even when walking on it, always landed on his feet and was therefore often compared to a cat.

Australian surfing champ Tom Carroll and his American rival Tom Curren were both initialed TC, which sometimes meant “Top Cat,” which they both were.

I vaguely recall something my friend John Conover, who founded and continues to run Tidelines Tide Calendars, wrote in the mid-’80s about learning from his cat.

While I don’t have his entire kitty tribute committed to memory, I was interested enough in the content of his four-paw salute that a friend and I discussed its content at length one evening.

If cats didn’t sleep so much, they might run the world. If they enjoyed swimming, they might also rule the waves, something that would, no doubt, leave fewer fish for other creatures.

With all that, the cat/surf connection was still a bit fuzzy with me. That all changed 20-some years ago when Clelia, our daughter, placed a fuzzy, black dot onto the lap of my wife, Tracy.

The cat, Clara, soon enlightened me as to how cats surfed airwaves or unseen vibrations that danced through the atmosphere. Like most cats, Clara did more than just see the environment — she felt it, she sensed it,

she heard it, she smelled it.

There were also things that none of the five known senses could account for — the sudden hunch of the back leading to a 3-foot vertical leap that arrived without apparent outside stimulus.

After Clara came Pete, a clumsy, clueless, flabby, crabby tabby that we loved despite his lack of catlike reflexes. Next were brothers Henry and Percy. When Percy died young, we picked up a rescue called Clementine who was wiser and faster than anything but the coyote.

When Henry died unexpectedly, we opened hearts and home to twin brothers, Eddy, and Brother.

The pair has shown me what I think Conover meant —that cats do a better job of being human than most humans. They sleep when they’re tired, eat when they’re hungry, don’t eat if they’re not feeling well, and let you know exactly how they feel about you.

Cats are silent hunters, watching their prey before destroying it with a quick flick of a five-stiletto paw. Cats surf waves of sound, site and vibration, intersecting with three-dimensional beings for our mutual benefit.

Cats enjoy things with no connection to anything practical, seeking the innermost limits of pure fun.

The comparison of a person to a cat is a compliment to the human, not the cat. I’d like to see John John, Felipe or Kelly do what Eddy and Brother can do.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovine’s creative forces start revving up as you plan for the upcoming holidays. Some practical aspects also emerge, especially where money is involved.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moments of doubt disrupt your otherwise clear sense of purpose. Don’t ignore them. They could be telling you not to rush into anything until you know more about it.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A planned trip might have to be delayed. Plan to use this new free time to update your skills and your resume so you’ll be ready when a new job opportunity opens.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) A flood of holiday party bids from business contacts allows you to mix work and pleasure. Your knowledge, plus your Leonine charm, wins you a new slew of admirers.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your plans to help provide holiday cheer for the less fortunate inspire others to follow your generous example. Expect welcome news by week’s end.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You’re in your glory as you start planning for the holiday season ahead. But leave time to deal with a problem that needs a quick and fair resolution.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) The upcoming holiday season provides a perfect setting for strengthening relationships with kin and others. A new contact has important information.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Instead of fretting over a cutting remark by a co-worker, chalk it up to an outburst of envy of your wellrespected status among both your colleagues and superiors.

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

should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: March 07, 2023; Time: 11:00 AM; in Dept.: 504. Court address: 1100 Union St., San Diego CA 92101, Central Courthouse.

The department’s in person instructions, MSTeams video conference link, MS Teams conference phone number, and assigned conference ID number can be found at www.sdcourt.ca.gov/ ProbateHearings. Plan to check 15 minutes prior to the scheduled hearing time.

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

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

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

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

Case# 37-2022-00043250PR-LA-CTL

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Milton Freeman

A Petition for Probate has been filed by Connie Eakins, in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego.

The Petition for Probate requests that Connie Eakins be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: March 21, 2023; Time: 11:00 AM; in Dept.: 504. Court address: 1100 Union St., San Diego CA 92101, Central Courthouse.

Court appearances may be made either in person or virtually, unless otherwise ordered by the Court. Virtual appearances must be made using the department’s Microsoft Teams (“MS Teams”) video link; or by calling the department’s MS Teams conference phone number and using the assigned conference ID number. The MS Teams video conference links and phone numbers can be found at www.sdcourt.ca.gov/ ProbateHearings

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

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

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

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

Temaki Bar brings traditional hand rolls to Encinitas

lick the plate

First, anyone living in coastal and inland North County should be very grateful for the region's plethora of solid sushi joints. It’s almost overwhelming, and the choices generate a lot of debate among locals over which joint reigns supreme.

Well, now there is another one to add to the long list: Temaki Bar, backed by a powerhouse restaurant group at its sexy new location in the heart of Encinitas along Coast Highway 101.

Temaki Bar, the latest restaurant concept from Clique Hospitality founder Andy Masi (a North County local), opened its doors on Nov. 4 under the talented hands of San Diego chef JoJo Ruiz.

Clique Hospitality is a boutique hospitality company with operations throughout Las Vegas and San Diego, known for specializing in upscale, comfortable dining.

“Translating to ‘hand roll,’ Temaki Bar celebrates the tradition that all perfect hand rolls should be eaten within seconds of when the chef passes them across the counter — while the rice is still warm and the fish fresh and chilled,” the website explains.

Admittedly, while I’ve had hand rolls before, I never knew they were supposed to be served in that manner. And it makes a big difference in the best possible way — I could eat a couple of dozen of them easily.

The 38-seat art-centric space is all bar seating in a horseshoe shape with a view of all the culinary and bartending action happening within eyesight.

And I’m not sure if it was just because we were

there close to opening night or what, but it was a very attractive crowd…with more of a club vibe than a natural beach style typical of Encinitas. Perhaps it’s the Vegas influence from Clique Hospitality.

But then again, the

times they are a-changin’ in downtown Encinitas.

Fabulous people aside, the food is the star at Temaki and it’s well worth your time. The hand rolls are made-to-order for guests featuring freshly-caught blue crab, yellow-

tail, salmon and more.

Signature items include Crispy Bang Bang Shrimp with gochujang mayo and scallions, Dre’s Pop, Rock & Drop hand roll with pop rocks, bang bang shrimp and mango, and hand roll sets offered in

quantities of three, four or five varieties.

Temaki Bar also offers signature cut rolls, such as the Lobsta Queen with spicy lobster, caviar and crispy onion; The Kook…aka Cali with crab, avocado and cucumber; and West Coast

Philly, featuring salmon with everything bagel seasoning and cashew cream cheese. (Is there anything out there that has not been given the everything bagel seasoning treatment?)

As with many area restaurants, there is a nod to the North County community. An original art installation featuring local favorite and Mr. Cardiff/ Encinitas Rob Machado Surfboards, designed in collaboration with Todd DiCiurcio, a renowned American artist, spans the entire space, with each wall transformed into a hand-painted mural inspired by a surfboard triptych.

For those not hip to the term (me included), a triptych is a work of art divided into three sections or three carved panels hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open.

More local roots involved in the project include Solana Beach-based architect Andrew Crocker of T7 Architecture, who created a bright, airy space featuring coastal design elements and a welcoming vibe. While Encinitas-based potter, Michael Totah of The Wheel, provided custom stoneware to complement the cutting-edge culinary presentations.

So yeah, if you want to experience hand rolls from some folks that know how to do them right and an excellent menu all around, with a touch of glitz thrown in, give Temaki Bar a shot.

Temaki Bar is located at 575 South Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas and is open Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., closed Mondays.

Temaki joins Clique Hospitality’s other San Diego concepts, including Serea, Lionfish, Oxford Social Club, The Pool House, Bull & Bourbon and Joya Kitchen in La Jolla. For more information or to access the waitlist, please visit www.temakibarsushi. com.

nut recipes for peanuts on the dollar

As we run this holiday marathon, it’s nice to have the occasional quick win, right? Here are a couple of foodie gifts that are cheaper, easier and faster than baking cookies.

SUNFLOWER SEED AND PEPITA BRITTLE

3 tablespoons butter 1/2 teaspoon table salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup pepitas

2 cups sugar

Line a baking sheet with parchment; set aside.

In a saucepan, melt butter on low heat; add salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Add sunflower seeds and pepitas.

Stir to evenly coat seeds with butter mixture. Remove from heat but keep warm.

The next step takes about 25 minutes, so be patient. In a large (12-inch) heavy skillet over medium heat, add sugar. Stirring nearly constantly, you’ll see the sugar begin to form clumps. Gradually, the clumps melt and become a smooth, amber syrup. This sugar syrup is liquid napalm, so treat it as such.

When the lumps are gone, add the seed mixture and quickly stir to combine. Immediately pour onto prepared baking sheet. Use a spatula to quickly spread the mixture into a thin, even layer.

Cool completely and

break into pieces.

HONEY ROAST PEANUTS

2 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons table salt (divided)

3 cups unsalted peanuts

1/3 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large, microwave-safe bowl, place butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon salt. Microwave in 20-second increments, stirring each time, until the butter is melted. Once melted, stir until smooth.

Add the peanuts to the honey mixture and stir until well-coated. Place the peanuts on the prepared baking sheet, spreading into an even layer. Bake the peanuts for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. (Stirring will prevent the peanuts at the edges of the pan from burning before the middle is baked.)

When the peanuts are golden brown, remove from the oven and give them one more stir, to break up any clumps. After cooling a couple of minutes, sprinkle with the granulated sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon of salt, and stir again. Cool at room temperature. If they insist on remaining sticky, sprinkle with sugar.

Partnership launches bespoke whiskey

with friends and family this winter!

Cheers: What is the best way for local whiskey fans to enjoy Bottleside?*

Ilove whiskey. I’m particularly partial to rye whiskey. There are several within arm’s reach as I write this.

When I heard that local bottle shop Bottlecraft and South Park bar and restaurant Fernside teamed up with WhistlePig Distillery to create a barrel-aged Canadian rye whiskey, I wanted to know more.

Bottlecraft’s owner Brian Jensen and Christian Siglin, Fernside’s bar manager and partner, did a farm visit to the Vermont distillery last December. After days of dedicated tasting, they worked together to develop the WhistlePig Bottleside Bespoke Blend, a 12year aged rye whiskey.

Jensen recapped the experience in a recent note to his staff:

“…Coming up with the bespoke blend was a very cool experience in which we tasted through and then blended whiskey ‘finished’ in three different ‘Old World’ casks (Madeira, Sauternes, and Port). What is a barrel finish? Finishing is the art of taking a used barrel and allowing an already mature, straight whiskey to rest in it.

“Finishing can be used to enhance the character of the whiskey without overtaking the overall flavor. The ‘Old World’ part means that the three casks originated in Europe, with Madeira and Port being fortified wines from Portugal and Sauternes, a dessert wine from France.

“Using a dropper and beaker, we combined the three finished whiskeys numerous ways until we came upon a blend that we thought was balanced, flavorful, and unique. This blend was ultimately 75% Madeira, 20% Sauternes, and 5% Port, displayed on a smaller label on the side of each bottle.

“The finishing added a touch of sweetness that balanced the spicy rye notes and increased the depth and complexity of the whiskey. Bottleside was then ‘married’ in a neutral barrel for a few months before being bottled and shipped to us.”

I checked in with Jensen and Siglin to see where things are at now, in the moment.

Cheers: First, I assume the name “Bottleside” is a mashup of Bottlecraft and Fernside. What inspired the collaboration between the two brands?

Brian Jensen: Christian and I have been friends for years, and we, along with our wives, have traveled all over the world eating and drinking together. He’s taught me pretty much everything I know about spirits, and I always trust his palate when

picking something like this.

Christian Siglin: The mashup started as us being friends and travel partners. We both respect what each other does and want to create joint success between brands, plus it’s fun to do things that aren’t expected.

Cheers: Whistlepig is a fairly hot name in the whiskey community, but they are all the way over on the East Coast. What made them the right partner to develop a rye whiskey with?

Jensen: I love rye whiskey, and I love Vermont. Having the opportunity to combine those into a trip to do a barrel pick was a no-brainer! On top of that, WhistlePig makes some of my favorite whiskeys, and we had great success with our previous single barrel pick with them.

Siglin: I was fortunate to help Brian pick his first WhistlePig barrel, and when this opportunity presented itself, it just made sense to work together on this. WhistlePig is a highly respected brand and one that Dave Pickerell (RIP) helped to

put on the map. It was great to be able to partner with them.

Cheers: How would you recommend I drink Bottleside?

Siglin: This whiskey shines best neat. It drinks very delicately, and at 86-proof, it drinks extremely easy. If not neat, I would drink it in a simple Old Fashioned or a Manhattan with a lighter style vermouth, like Dolin Rouge.

Jensen: I agree. I love it neat. I think it’s really deep and complex due to the blend of barrel finishes that add a nice roundness to the spicy rye character. Drink it

Siglin: They can pick up bottles at Bottlecraft Little Italy, Bottlecraft North Park, or Fernside. We are currently serving pours of it at Fernside if you want to have a dram or a taste before you buy.

*Bottlecraft does have a North County location in Oceanside, but they do not currently have a liquor license that allows for the sale of spirits at that location.

Bump Coffee in Encinitas

Where: Bump Coffee, 1302 N Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas, CA 92024

Open: Daily, 6 to 12 p.m.

What: Brasilo Reserva Region: Nayarit, Mexico

Tasting Notes: Citrus, chocolate, nutty Price: $4.50

Bump Coffee’s Leucadia location is cozy.

If it were a bit more worn in and harder to see from the road, you might call it a hole-in-thewall.

At Bump, ordering is effortless. Your choices are small or large. The current coffee on order is the Brasilo Reserva from Mexico.

Want a snack with your coffee? You can choose from a selection of handmade empanadas, which are long gone when I arrive.

The “Vibe” at Bump is

focused on surf and simplicity. I capitalized the letter “V” intentionally because it is a vibe. You can feel it in the small size of the space.

Batch-brewed coffees are my typical go-to, but they can’t compete with a handcrafted pour-over. Since they only offer one roast, Bump Coffee has wisely chosen one with broad appeal.

The chocolate and nutty notes will appeal to traditionalists looking for oldschool coffee that is roasted but without a lot of bitterness. The coffee nerds who know just enough to be dangerous — myself included — will enjoy the balancing fruit flavors. They add texture and a nuanced mouthfeel without being overwhelming.

Wine, food festival brings guests to ‘awesome’

taste of wine

The San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival returned last month for an iconic coastal celebration of wine, food and culture. While each of the six days was action-packed, the most significant days saw the Grand Decant, Grand Tasting and Grand Fiesta.

Frank and I were excited to see familiar faces and discover new wineries over the weekend.

Friday’s Grand Decant included over 100 wineries from all corners of the world, including Louis Latour from Burgundy, France, with most wineries hailing from Napa Valley/Sonoma, CA Central Coast, Temecula, and San Diego County.

When first entering the Grand Decant, we were able to catch up with Encinitas-based Burtech Family Vineyards. Burtech's '21 rosé is a 91-point Wine Enthusiast winner. We also saw Carol Shelton to enjoy her Monga Zin, one of Frank’s recent Top 5 discovery wines.

We also had a chance to enjoy wines from Temecula’s Falkner, South Coast Wineries and Howell Mountain Vineyards, where we were able to catch up with Mike Beatty and his winemaker Bryan Kane. Howell Mountain's cab francs and cab sauvs always impress and the 2018s they were pouring maintained their tradition of excellence.

A limited number of guests were able to take advantage of the Grand Decant LUX area featuring premium wines and gourmet appetizers. Louis Latour, Chateau Montelena, and Steven Kent are a short list of premium wineries.

Louis Latour’s Mick

Cameron, Western Regional Manager and Dannytza Rodriguez were a wealth of information as they walked us through tastings of their Chateau De Blagny Chardonnay with a floral nose with hints of citrus and grilled almond on the palate before we tried the Grand Cru Corton Charlemagne.

The Charlemagne vineyard faces southeast, providing maximum sun exposure in addition to late harvests making the Charlemagne a premium Grand Cru. We then shifted to reds for the Alexe-Corton Pinot Noir, followed by the Grand Cru Corton Grancey Pinot Noir. All four were delicious wines.

On either side of Louis Latour was iconic Chateau Montelena, famous for their winning at the 1976 Judgement of Paris. George Blankensee, Montelena’s estate director, was spoiling guests with library 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the other side was sixth-generation winemaker, Steven Kent Mirassou of Steven Kent Winery, indulging guests with their Livermore wines. It’s worth noting that his son, seventh-generation Aidan Mirassou, assists with winemaking.

While I was familiar with their wines, this was the first time I tasted them. The Kent tasting lineup in-

cluded their 2019 L’Autre Cote Cab Franc, The Premier Cab Sauv, and Lineage Red Blend (90% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, and 2% cabernet franc). Across from Kent Winery was Chef Ron serving duck fat smoked salt caramels, which was perfect with the Latour, Montelena, and Kent red wines.

Day 2 was the Grand Tasting. We were excited to see the premier Brandt Beef food section return this year. Ranch45’s beef sandwich on fresh bread was mouthwatering. Other restaurants of note throughout the Grand Tasting were ARLO, STK San Diego, and Solare.

Saturday also allowed us to visit wineries we missed on Friday. Those of note included Paso Robles’ Niner and Austin Hope, named Wine Enthusiast’s Winery of the Year, Sangiacomo with their outstanding 5 Clones Pinot Noir, and Rutherford Ranch.

Being a foodie, one of my Grand Tasting highlights was the interview with Wolf, Sub Zero, and Cove’s corporate chef Joel Chesebro. Chesebro shared his thoughts on making cooking relaxing and therapeutic, especially during the holidays — something he refers to as Kitchen Therapy.

Chesebro suggested

shopping for ingredients early and having them staged and ready for cooking. Next, he recommended “cooking from ingredients.” Recipes are good to use but cooking from ingredients using your experience can add flair and personalize a dish.

Third, make proteins simple and executable. He suggested that large pieces of meat should be prepared after coming to room temperature. For a standard-sized turkey (less than 16 pounds), this can take 3½ to 4 hours. Chesebro also advised resting meats before carving.

These two simple steps can make the difference between dry and juicy meats.

Fourth, he recommended using convection ovens. Convection ovens use a fan to distribute the heat resulting in more even cooking. If you’re in the market for new ranges, Wolf, Sub Zero, and Cove have premium convection ovens. Additionally, they offer warming drawers to keep food warm, freeing up your oven.

Those attending the 2022 San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival did, in fact, “arrive at awesome.” Bravo to festival co-producers/ owners Michelle Metter, Ken Loyst, and their Fast Forward PR team. More info at sandiegowineclassic.com.
