Carlsbad economy hits growth spurt  Report: City’s economy grew by $1 billion in 2021

G E

By Nijat Mamtimen

CARLSBAD — The city of Carlsbad’s economy grew by $1 billion to $14.6 billion in 2021 after producing the second-largest gross regional product in San Diego County, according to a city staff report presented to the council earlier this month. The city’s second-quarter growth spurt for the fiscal year 2021-22 (up 7.3% from approximately $13.6 billion in 2020) was attributed to a number of factors, including new jobs, low unemployment (3.4% unemployment rate in December), improved office and industrial vacancy rates, tourism and rising home values. “This growth was seen across all industry categories and was led by manufacturing, wholesale trade and professional scientific and technical services,” said Matthew Sanford, the city’s economic development manager of Carlsbad, during a Feb. 8 Carlsbad City Council meeting. According to the city’s report, Carlsbad’s economy grew by $800 million to nearly $13.6 billion in 2019, but “remained flat” in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year in Carlsbad, there were 15,418 unique job postings between October and December, an TURN TO CARLSBAD ON A18

Encinitas council advances Pacific View plans By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — In a move nearly 20 years in the making, the Encinitas City Council is moving forward with plans to convert the former site of Pacific View Academy into a public arts center. The site, located on Third Street near downtown Encinitas, has been dormant since the closing of Pacific View Elementary in 2003. The city purchased the site in 2014, but since then, plans for the property have not been openly discussed by the City Council.

Roughly three years later in 2017, the Encinitas Arts, Culture and Ecology Alliance entered into an

agreement with the city to operate and maintain the site and submitted an application to the city’s planning

department to redevelop the property. However, when the agreement with the city expired, the application never returned to the city’s planning commission and since then the site has remained dormant. According to the city, the original application from the Encinitas Arts, Culture and Ecology Alliance is also still valid despite being last seen by the city’s Planning Commission in 2019. Councilmember Joy Lyndes says the site is an important part of the community and is eager to get

the site back online for the city. “The Pacific View property itself is part of the character of our community,” Lyndes said. “And it’s been neglected, unfortunately, but it can come back. I do a lot of work with historic preservation and there are some good bones there.” Following the original partnership with the Encinitas Arts, Culture and Ecology Alliance, the council was keen on transforming the site into a space for the arts. “Really focusing on TURN TO PACIFIC VIEW ON A8

RSF school Chick-fil-A coming to Carlsbad fuels ‘chicken wars’ board seeks mask control By Steve Puterski

By Tigist Layne

RANCHO SANTA FE – The Rancho Santa Fe School District board sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom and state public health officials last week urging them to allow the district to take back local control over decisions regarding student mask mandates. The letter was also addressed to Dr. Tomás Aragón, California’s Department of Public Health director and officer, and Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state health and human services secretary. The action came after more than 150 district parents wrote a letter to the board asking for the school to make student masking a choice. Parents presented the letter at the board’s Feb. 11 board meeting, prompting Board President Jee Manghani to call a special meeting the following day. State officials announced Monday that it is keeping the student mask mandate in place until at least Feb. 28, even though it is lifting the statewide indoor mask mandate for vaccinated people nearly everywhere else. “We anticipate making the change at that point, and that change is going to be one that I think will be met with a lot of excitement in some and a lot of fear in other circles,” Ghaly said in an online news conference. The letter explains that the district was the first public school district in the County to provide in-person learning at the start of the 2020-2021 school year. It also emphasizes the district’s high vaccination rate of about 90% among the communities in the district and 94% among staff. “[We] have demonstrated the ability to provide a safe learning environment for our students. We have been able to do this because of our deep and unique understanding of our schools, our local conditions and our students,” the letter read in part. “Because the board is in the best position to make decisions regarding student masking in our own schools, we request that you return this local control back to the Board, and notify us of your agreement to do so no later than February 18, 2022,” the letter continued. At the Feb. 11 board meeting, several parents gave public comments expressing their frustration with the student mask mandate. “It’s time to stand up and tell the state ‘No’,” said parent Kerry Vinci. “It’s time to push back and wait and see what happens. This is not fair to our kids. We’re robbing our kids of their childhood.”

CARLSBAD — Chickfil-A is coming to Carlsbad, fortifying its position in North County and ramping up local pressure in the socalled “chicken wars.” The Georgia-based fast-food restaurant was approved for its fourth North County location on Feb. 22 after the Carlsbad City Council unanimously approved the chain’s project on Avenida Encinas. The restaurant will reside next to another fast-food giant, In-n-Out Burger. The City Council’s unanimous approval of a Chick-fil-A location was a rare move, as Carlsbad has very few fast-food restaurants — a purposeful move by city leadership for years. However, the fastfood chain will have some limitations, such as no drive-thru service, which Carlsbad no longer allows, making Chick-fil-A a standalone eatery. “This has been years in the making,” said Carlos Arias, development manager for Chick-fil-A. “I actually live in Carlsbad, so this one is personal for me.” Currently, Chick-fil-A has locations in Oceanside, San Marcos and Encinitas, plus 11 other restaurants in San Diego County. As for the location, Esteban Danna, an associate planner for the city, said a 10,600-square foot office building will be demolished for a new 3,932-square foot

Newsom, others introduce Texas-style gun control bill By City News Service

DEL MAR — Gov. Gavin Newsom reiterated his commitment to hold the firearm industry accountable while visiting the Del Mar Fairgrounds to announce proposed legislation to increase certain gun controls. Saying Friday he had no issues with law-abiding gun owners or even guns themselves, Newsom focused his speech on ghost guns, serial numbers, background checks and civil suits intended to hold manufacturers accountable — similar to a suit brought by the parents of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, who settled for $73 million with arms manufacturer Remington this week. “I’m sick of being on the defense on this stuff,” Newsom said. Senate Majority Leader Emeritus Bob Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys, joined the governor to announce the new legislation intended to limit the spread of dangerous assault weapons and ghost guns utilizing similar tactics to Texas’ recent abortion law. “In a just world, a woman’s right to choose would be sacrosanct, and California’s people would be protected from ghost guns and assault weapons,” Hertzberg said. “Sadly, a

misguided Supreme Court seems determined to turn common sense on its head. “With this bill, we take advantage of the court’s flawed logic to protect all Californians and save lives,” he said. “I look forward to rushing this new bill to the governor's desk to take advantage of the court’s guidance to create a safer California.” The Texas state Legislature in 2021 passed a law that bans abortions after six weeks and gave individuals the ability to file civil suits against those in breach of the law. The Supreme Court upheld the legislation 6-3. “The decision was absurd, but they've opened up the door,” Newsom said. “We’ll either expose their rank hypocrisy or get them to reconsider the absurdity of their previous ruling.” The nonprofit Firearms Policy Coalition blasted the action, saying state is seeking “new lows in its long-running campaign to assault fundamental human rights and the peaceable people who exercise them.” “Today, Gavin Newsom, who loves to issue mandates he himself doesn’t bother to follow, was joined by other elitist authoritarians to announce a new barrage of attacks on the rights to keep and bear arms and free speech, among othTURN TO GUNS ON A18

surrounding street system. Danna said a new traffic signal will be installed by the company at the driveways at the driveway in front of In-N-Out, while another driveway will be installed on the north end of the property in front of Chick-fil-A. Mitigation will also

include crosswalks for pedestrians across the street in several business parks, Danna added. Danna said one opposition letter, from Traffic and Mobility Commissioner Steve Linke, cited the project does not comply with the city’s Mobility Element and the Local Mobil-

ity Analysis report, which inadequately evaluated the pedestrian Multi-Modal Level of Service due to a gap on the sidewalk on the east side of Avenida Encinas. Danna said staff confirmed the project complies with city standards regarding the Mobility Element and the traffic signal will address the concerns of the LMA. “We have gotten a lot of customer requests from people in Carlsbad,” said Phil Rath of Rath Public Affairs, who worked with Chick-fil-A on public outreach of the project. “We got a lot of positive feedback from the office park across the street.” For the past several years, the fast-food chicken sandwich wars have been a growing phenomenon and a cult favorite among the public as Chick-fil-A, Popeyes, Wendy’s, McDonald’s and others vie for chicken sandwich supremacy. The marketing battle has led to many fast-food businesses entering by pivoting and mobilizing their chicken offerings. Some have been unexpected, such as Taco Bell, which has attempted to capitalize on the popularity of the Chicken Wars. A 2021 Civic Science poll showed Chick-fil-A leading the Chicken Wars over Popeyes by a 65%54% margin, with Wendy’s in third at 51%.

Hold firm on bluff talks

H

By Karen Lare

onorable Mayor and City Council Members: Del Mar Woods is a community of 126 condominium owners whose units are located at the southwest end of Del Mar. The complex is situated on the upper bluff overlooking the ocean and train tracks. The complex has approximately 560 feet of bluff facing-property bordered on the west side by acacia plants, a drainage culvert, installed by NCTD that is approximately 3.5 feet wide and then the open bluff trail area. The Del Mar Woods association has an agreement with the railway to maintain the drainage culvert as it serves the HOA and is on property under railroad control. NCTD’s statements and the press about erecting a fence on the upper bluff have alarmed many of the residents of Del Mar Woods for multiple reasons, but most importantly over the concern of the impact it will have to drill large postholes into a fragile sandstone bluff, then fill them with concrete and then install a 4-foot fence. Just the equipment and people needed to do this work alone will negatively impact the bluff edge and surrounding vegetation. To our knowledge, a comprehensive geologic study has not been done on the soil of the upper bluff and the consensus of local geologists is that the sandstone bluffs are prone to erosion and collapse as evidenced by the multiple bluff slides on the lower bluffs. Thankfully, we have not had a large upper bluff failure in recent memory, but the upper bluffs are prone to natural erosion from rain and wind on an on-going basis. As you know, there is a narrow walking trail west of the drainage culvert. The trail is only about

4 feet wide along that portion of the upper bluff and is used by residents and visitors alike to view the ocean vistas and watch the sunset or to walk their dogs. The bluffs along Del Mar Woods south of 4th Street are approximately 40 feet above the tracks and there is no trail that is used to access the tracks or the beaches below from the bluff in front of Del Mar Woods. In addition, no one has fallen from the upper bluff located in front of Del Mar Woods or at all on the upper bluff anywhere to our knowledge. Furthermore, we

or anyone. Damage done to this bluff at this stage of its evolution cannot be reversed, ever. It is important to note that there are no soldier piles in place to support this section of the bluff and should a bluff failure result from NCTD’s fencing (approved by the Del Mar City Council without a thorough geological study or detailed construction fencing plan), it would mean that both NCTD and the city would be opening themselves up to litigation from the 126 owners at Del Mar Woods. Why would the city agree to 4-foot fencing in

We ask you to hold firm in your negotiations with NCTD and insist that no fence is required on the upper bluff south of 4th Street. are aware that the city is amenable to accepting the risk of liability for people who are injured while using the upper bluff. We do not see how the addition of a fence will enhance NCTD’s train safety record in this area. A fence of the type NCTD is describing will only disturb the vegetation and soil, eliminate space for walking and add weight to the edge of the bluff. In addition, a fence with a posthole every 6 feet will mean a minimum of at least 93 new openings that will allow additional water intrusion and cause additional erosion of the sandstone on this fragile bluff. We ask you to hold firm in your negotiations with NCTD and insist that no fence is required on the upper bluff south of 4th street. It is plain to see that the risks of erecting a fence in this area greatly outweigh any imagined benefit to NCTD, the city,

an area that does not need it? Why is NCTD so interested in fencing a part of Del Mar where the trains don’t run? Why fence an area that has no access to the railroad tracks below? The purpose/goal of the fencing according to NCTD is “to stop trespassers [on the tracks] and save lives.” Fencing at this location does not further this goal and only serves to add environmental and geological stress and cost taxpayers’ money. We appreciate the work that you have all done on our behalf in negotiating with NCTD to have the best possible outcome for the residents of Del Mar but we must insist that you remain steadfast and oppose the fence on the upper bluff in front of Del Mar Woods. Karen Lare is a resident of Del Mar.

or decades, it’s been a truism of California life and politics: The more development pushes out into formerly wild lands, the more damaging the forest and brush fires that follow. This has played out to the tune of tens of billions of dollars in damage and more than 100 lives lost over the last five years, with fire after fire destroying homes and cutting off escape routes. But still, development continued virtually unabated. Until early this year, when a judge in sparsely populated Lake County said no to a 16,000acre luxury mixed use project on land partly singed by past fires and partly deemed likely to flare up in future ones. Most seriously, Lake County Superior Court Judge J. David Markham wrote in his landmark ruling, the development could close off or overcrowd fire evacuation routes, dooming many to death, as happened during the 2018 Camp Fire in Butte County. Markham also noted that parts of the land involved in the putative Maha Guenoc Valley project have burned in 1952, 1953, 1963, 1976, 1980, 1996, 2006, 2014, 2015 and 2018. It’s hardly surprising that such a landmark ruling comes in Lake County, which since 2012 has been victimized by the Cache Fire, the Clearlake Fire, the Ranch Fire portion of the Mendocino Complex, the Jerusalem Fire, the Pawnee Fire, the Valley Fire, the LNU Lightning Complex Fire and the August Complex Fire, which covered 1.032 million acres by itself in Lake, Glenn, Mendocino, Tehama, Trinity and Shasta counties after originating as 38 separate blazes. The judge ruled in a lawsuit brought by state Attorney General Rob Bonta and several environmental groups claiming the project could prove disastrous to both its own future residents and guests but also to present area residents. So Lake County and the developer are back to square one. This project won’t happen unless it is reduced, with major design changes and perhaps more roads. Other judges had previously struck down smaller developments in both San Diego and Los Angeles counties due to fire risks, but the likelihood is that they will ultimately proceed, with a few changes. The fate of the Lake County project is less certain. What is certain is that every time a major fire burns hundreds or thousands of homes, Califor-

nia’s serious housing shortage gets worse. But state legislators don’t even try to be innovative or forward looking about this. Their steady answer for housing problems: more new development. That was the thinking behind last year’s SB 9 and SB 10, which all but eliminated single-family zoning. They are now law, allowing virtually every current one-house lot to be split, with six new units replacing today’s one. But those new laws require no new parking, no new water supplies, no new school buildings, no traffic mitigation — none of the measures developers of new tracts have had to provide over the last few decades. The only way to keep these laws allowing massive amounts of piecemeal new housing from becoming permanent is to qualify a currently circulating ballot initiative for the November ballot and pass it, thus returning local land use decisions to locally elected city councils and county supervisors. State lawmakers, many of whose campaigns are funded in large part by developers, assiduously ignore the fast-expanding vacancies in office buildings all around the state. These are created when white collar workers at law firms, insurance companies, stock brokerages and many other concerns shift to working at home, as happened en masse when the coronavirus pandemic began two years ago. Now a huge part of California’s work force says it will continue working at home indefinitely, and major companies from Google to Twitter to Hulu are saying OK. Meetings and conversations happen virtually, and employers say efficiency has not suffered much, if at all. Some conversion of the office space left vacant by all this has already begun. But it needs to happen on a much larger scale if it’s to put a real dent in the housing problem. Maybe, just maybe, the increasing difficulty of building near the convergence of wildland and urban sprawl will force legislators to make OKs automatic for the much less expensive conversions, even if that mean less profit for their developer patrons.

Homeless in North County: Luke’s battle with anosognosia By Stephen Wyer

REGION — Luke’s struggles began in college when he started exhibiting strange behaviors, suffering from confused thinking and expressing increasingly irrational beliefs. “He was doing great, and then over time it was obvious that something was very wrong,” said Janna, Luke’s mother and a North County resident. “I watched as my smart, funny, loving, top-of-his-class child was slowly hijacked by one of the most debilitating diseases on the planet." The family quickly got Luke in front of a psychiatrist, but since the doctor was unsure of a diagnosis at the time, he ultimately didn’t receive any meaningful treatment. After college, Luke’s condition worsened considerably. He was forced to leave his job due to his erratic behavior and his mother worried he might harm himself. But there was very little she could do because Luke simply wouldn’t accept help. Luke suffered from anosognosia, also called “lack of insight” — a symptom of certain mental illnesses that prevents an individual from recognizing they’re sick and need help. According to the Treatment Advocacy Center, around 50% of individuals with schizophrenia and 40% of those with bipolar disorder also suffer from anosognosia. The condition is so severe that a sick person can be malnourished and physically deteriorating to near death but will still refuse assistance, according to Dr. Susan Partovi, who works with homeless patients on Los Angeles’s Skid Row. “Somebody with anosognosia…they’ll just ignore what’s wrong, even if they’re bleeding or having heart failure, they think everything’s fine, they’ll even tell you nothing’s wrong… but really they lack the capacity to make these decisions,” Partovi said. “Luke kept refusing to go to the doctor or when he did he’d refuse help and say nothing was wrong with him..with anosognosia, you have this inability to even recognize that you are ill, and that’s a huge barrier to getting care because they won’t voluntarily get help,” Janna said.

Conservatorships As the months dragged on and Luke grew sicker, his family tried to get him into care through the Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) Conservatorship Act, a state law that allows individuals suffering from severe mental illness to be involuntarily committed to a long-term care facility until they are well enough to return to the community. Despite the severity of Luke’s condition, state conservatorship officials declined to take his case, saying that he did not meet the necessary criteria required for a conservatorship. Janna was outraged.

In addition to mental illness, some may also suffer from symptoms of anosognosia, which prevents sick indivduals from realizing they’re sick and need assistance. Courtesy photo

“All of a sudden when your child turns 18 it’s like you no longer have the right to help your kid,” Janna said. “This LPS act has caused so many deaths in our state because you can’t get people into care, and that’s because the bar is just too high. We want our children to have the civil right to live over the civil right to die, right now people are just deteriorating to the point of where they’re out on the streets…it’s just wrong.” The LPS law and the way it has been interpreted have exacerbated California’s homelessness crisis, according to Paul Webster, founder and director of the Hope Street Coalition, a homelessness advocacy group based in San Diego. Webster said that civil liberties groups like the ACLU have been successful in pushing for a more extreme interpretation of conservatorship law that prioritizes the personal freedom of the mentally ill homeless at the expense of their wellbeing. “With LPS law there’s a battle occurring, and it’s a battle that has been won by civil liberties advocates… they’ve taken a very uncompromising position which says that all treatment has to be voluntary, the legal threshold is so very high… the way the law is now is that your son or daughter can die on the streets as long as their ‘civil liberties’ are wholly intact,” Webster said. “Is the way this law is being interpreted helping the most vulnerable? Not necessarily…the question is will lawmakers do what’s right and calibrate this law so that there’s a balance between people’s civil liberties and their needs to get the help that they need — sometimes without their consent.” The notion that individuals suffering from mental illness must consent to treatment ignores how brain diseases like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder work, Janna said.

“When someone has a brain disease, it’s like they’ve been hijacked,” she said. “Most of these people like my son will never get care voluntarily, and it just ends up leading to more deaths and more problems…you’re watching your beloved child disintegrate in front of your eyes and your hands are tied.”

Not enough beds Luke eventually moved back home, but Janna had to call the police on several occasions when Luke’s behavior deteriorated. Eventually, Luke was taken by the Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, or PERT, to a county psychiatric hospital. But Luke was almost immediately discharged without being stabilized or treated with any kind of medication. Janna believes that by releasing people like Luke to the streets before they’re stabilized, San Diego’s hospitals are worsening the homelessness crisis. “These hospitals are letting people go without stabilizing them…if you had Parkinson's or Alzheimer's they wouldn’t kick you out into the street until you’re stabilized, they would provide supportive services once you got home…why is this any different?” According to Partovi, hospitals and psychiatric facilities have an incentive to get patients out the door quickly because of federal limits when it comes to insurance coverage. Patients admitted for psychiatric hospitalization are only covered by Medicaid for three days after admission. After that, the hospital has to foot the bill if the patient doesn’t have private insurance. “After three days of hospitalization, psych patients are the state’s responsibility, but the state has just given up and says it’s the individual counties responsibilities…the bottom line is that the state is not giving hospitals enough money to take care of people who need a long term

treatment facility,” Partovi said. Countless patients like Luke are discharged due to limits on insurance coverage, and others are rejected by psychiatric care centers simply because there is no space at these facilities, Partovi said. “Where are people supposed to go? There are simply not enough beds in acute and sub-acute facilities in San Diego County,” Janna said. On several occasions, Janna distinctly remembers conversations that she had with county representatives. The officials told her that her family’s best bet was to kick Luke out of their house, making him homeless, and then hopefully he’d get picked up and taken to jail, where he might receive treatment. “Does that make sense to you?”

Archaic laws Around the time that he turned 27, Luke became homeless. After spending six months on the streets, Janna says that Luke was arrested for a nonviolent crime. Despite his observably deteriorated mental state, Luke was allowed to defend himself at his jury

trial—and was predictably found guilty. “That trial was such a sham…even the judge admitted it later and told us that Luke should never have been allowed to stand trial,” Janna said. “By the time that he got into court, he was so ill it was horrible…how was this trial allowed to happen?" Luke sat in jail for nearly a year with no medication or treatment, even though his family had given the court his medical history. Luke was declared incompetent to stand trial, and a few months later he started involuntarily receiving medication. Less than a week later, Janna sobbed as she recalls getting a phone call from Luke who she hadn’t spoken to in over a year. “I get a call and he said, 'Mom, I realize how much I love you, I’m sorry, please come down and visit me'…it was heartbreaking.” Just before Luke was sent to jail, Janna says that she tried to get her son into San Diego’s Assisted Outpatient Treatment, or AOT— a court-ordered community treatment program for individuals suffering from severe psychiatric disorders

to get the treatment they need before they land in the criminal justice system. The program was established under Assembly Bill 1421, also called Laura’s Law. But after several months, In-Home Outpatient Treatment, or IHOT, a team that screens people for admission to the AOT program, dropped his case because Luke wasn’t voluntarily consenting to treatment. Janna has spoken with other families with desperately sick adult children who have shared similar outcomes with IHOT. “In our county…they’re dropping these cases because these people wouldn’t accept help…the problem is that for 50% of people that suffer from these kinds of brain diseases, they don’t recognize that they’re ill and that’s part of the problem…it makes no sense that our county isn’t using best practices for AOT, they’ve just really let us all down," Jana said. “This isn’t what AOT is supposed to be about…If this were any other medical disease, this whole situation would be malpractice a billion times over…you’re applying archaic laws to medical conditions that should be in the domain of doctors, not lawyers, judges, and officers.” Eventually, Luke’s family was able to convince a judge to send him into a residential care facility in San Diego, which Janna says they were able to cover through the family’s private insurance.

Oceanside Lawsuit filed expects small budget surplus  Residents claim By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The city’s budget is expected to maintain a surplus balance over the next five years despite rising prices. According to the city’s annual five-year financial forecast, which was presented to Oceanside City Council earlier this month, the upcoming 2022-23 fiscal year will end with a $3.42 million surplus. Fiscal years start in July of the first year and end in June the following year. Five-year forecasts are used to project a municipality’s cost of maintaining current service levels as well as adding any operational changes that could affect the city’s future financial status. Revenues are estimated by property and sales tax projections, past trends and best estimates of future development; while expenditures are determined by using the prior year as a base budget, consumer price index, or CPI, increases, salary increases, changes in operations and retirement cost increases. After next year, the FY 2023-24 will end with a smaller surplus of about $1.86 million, followed by an even smaller $1.28 million in FY 2024-25. That number will then jump to $3.09 million in FY 2025-26, then once again fall back to $1.84 million in FY 2026-27. For FY 2022-23, the city expects to see a 9.5% increase in revenue but also a 5% CPI increase in expenditures. Every consecutive year after that will see about a 2% CPI increase, and the city expects to see a $10.5 million increase in retirement costs over the next five years. “While that is a significant projected increase, notice the percentage of increase is expected to decrease over the next five years as our workforce smoothens into PEPRA employees,” said Jill Moya, the city’s interim financial services director. PEPRA employees are public employees who were hired following the California Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act, which took effect in January 2013. The law changed how CalPERS’ retirement and health benefits are applied by placing a compensation limit on its members. Moya said the city will also see a decrease in its unfunded pension liability fund. “Fifty percent of our general surplus goes to paying down our longterm debts,” Moya said. The city has paid $34.7 million toward its unfunded pension liability over the last five years.

against SDUHSD over new map

changes violate state voting rights By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — A residents' lawsuit has alleged the San Dieguito Union High School District’s new electoral map violates the California Voting Rights Act by disenfranchising a third of voters in the district and purposefully targeting two board members by gerrymandering their districts. The lawsuit, which is expected to be filed on Tuesday in San Diego Superior Court, seeks declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent the district from submitting its newly-approved electoral map to the San Diego County Office of Education. “The parties, therefore, require a judicial determination of the Rearranged Map’s legal force and effect (if any),” the lawsuit reads. According to a letter by Paul Gothold, the county's superintendent of schools, any delay in the process due to litigation could result in the county taking over the redistricting process from San Dieguito, which could cost the district financially. Cory Briggs, of San Diego-based Briggs Law Corporation, filed the suit on behalf of two residents, Carol Chang of San Diego and Solana Beach’s Lisa Montes, both of whom live within the San Dieguito Union High School District. In a letter to Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward, Briggs warns the district against destroying any messages or communications related to the redistricting process. “My clients are concerned about the possibility that electronic communications and other ‘writings’ may be deleted or otherwise sequestered or destroyed; such conduct could expose SDUHSD and the offending trustee(s)/employee(s) to monetary, issue, evidentiary, or other sanctions and could also result in evidentiary presumptions that are harmful to SDUHSD’s defense,” Briggs wrote. Speaking with The Coast News Tuesday morning, Briggs said his concerns are based on his more than 20 years of arguing cases against elected officials. “Elected officials have all sorts of back-channel communications,” Briggs said. “They police themselves and one should query the evolution of the maps.” Briggs questions how the school board came to the final map that was adopted last week after the first maps given to the district by the demographer were not as drastic in their alterations to the district boundaries. “That didn’t happen because the demographers fell and hit their heads,” Briggs said. “There was nobody advocating for those

maps except for the three board members. The pernicious map didn’t fall out of the sky.” In an email statement to the Times of San Diego, which first published news of the lawsuit late Monday evening, Trustee Melisse Mossy said: “I would never purposely adversely affect my colleagues. As a point of proof, I was eliminated in all three maps we were considering. I think I was the most adversely affected because if I choose to run again, I have to move or wait several years. I was also told that trustees would remain in their trustee areas until their sched-

uled time of re-election.” The complaint, which has not yet been assigned a judge, claims the maps “crack” and “pack” (terms used in cases of gerrymandering) minority voters in the district to give the conservative majority on the board more power. The suit alleges the new map divides, or “cracks,” the Hispanic community within the previous map’s Trustee Area 1 and Trustee Area 3 and instead “packs” them into the new Trustee Area 2. Similarly, the complaint states the map divides the Asian population of the previous Trustee

Area 4, instead of packing more White voters into the area, “thereby diluting the influence of the Asian population in future trustee area 4 elections.” The suit also alleges that changes to the numbering of Trustee Area 1 and Trustee Area 2 disenfranchise a significant portion of the school district's population by not allowing them to vote in board elections until 2024. “About 60,000 voters (30,000 voters each in two trustee areas) are not going to be able to vote in 2022. It will be six years between votes,” Briggs said. “That’s a third of the district not

allowed to vote. That’s not a few pennies in the couch, that’s a good number of people.” Briggs also claims the map “punishes” two elected officials, Trustee Julie Bronstein and Trustee Katrina Young, of the board’s Democrat minority. The suit alleges the new map purposefully draws its lines around the residence of Bronstein, who was elected via special election last year, to force her to “run for re-election in a trustee area where she does not have the same level of connection to the residents and community she was elected to represent.” During last week’s board meeting when the final map was adopted, a letter from Gothold was presented to the board outlining a potential course of action should legal action prevent the school district from submitting a map to the county before its March 1 deadline. Under the law, if the district fails to submit the final map by the cutoff date, the county can draw a new map and bill the school district for expenses related to the map-making process. The County Office of Education confirmed to The Coast News that the San Dieguito Union High School District has not yet submitted its newly approved map.

San Dieguito adopts new electoral map By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District approved a new electoral map last Thursday night amid claims of gerrymandering and a warning letter from the county superintendent of schools. Under the California Education Code, readjustment of trustee areas for school districts is required following every census, or every 10 years, if the new data shows the trustee areas are out of balance by a variance greater than 10%. San Dieguito Union High School District, or SDUHSD, saw significant growth in Trustee Area 5, which made its current map lopsided, requiring the lines to be readjusted into compliance. Once submitted to the County Office of Education, the new map will be used for the upcoming elections later this year, however, possible legal actions could throw a wrench into the process. Prior to debate on the maps, Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward read a letter from Paul Gothold, San Diego County's superintendent of schools. The letter states the county was informed that one or more of the electoral maps considered by the school district could violate the California Voting Rights Act and invite legal

action. While San Dieguito’s redistricting process does not require county approval, the school district must provide a new map to the county by March 1. However, Gothold's letter warns the county may intercede to draw the school district's map in the event of a delay or litigation. “In the event that an SDUHSD-approved plan encounters injunctive relief or is otherwise delayed in being provided to the county office on or before the mandated deadline, the County Committee shall fulfill its statutorily imposed obligations and approve a CVRA-compliant plan of its own accord and shall seek reimbursement from SDUHSD for all costs incurred in the process,” Gothold wrote. The district considered three maps for final approval, two of which — Scenario 7 and Scenario 8 — featured similarities in where the lines were drawn. Both maps leave two trustee areas without a sitting representative living within the boundaries and swap Trustee Area 1 with Trustee Area 2. The board voted 3-2 in favor of adopting Scenario 8. The swapping of trustee areas means residents who previously resided in Trustee Area 1 — represented by Trustee Maureen “Mo” Muir — and

were scheduled to vote in this year’s elections will now be located in Trustee Area 2, which does not have a seat up for election until 2024. A number of parents and residents in the district also pointed to decreases in minority voting share, particularly the Asian community, in Trustee Area 4 and Trustee Area 5, which they claim go against the state voting protections. For example, the voting share of the Asian community in Trustee Area 4 decreased around 8%. During the debate, Trustee Julie Bronstein requested to waive attorney-client privilege and allow the school district’s third-party legal counsel to speak openly about what he had previously told the board about the two controversial maps on Feb. 10 during a closed session. Since the discussion about the district maps has largely taken place in closed session meetings, Milton Foster, attorney at Fagen Friedman & Fulfrost LLP, needed the board’s permission to speak in an open session about what was discussed behind closed doors. But the motion failed in a 3-2 vote, with Muir, Trustee Michael Allman and Trustee Melisse Mossy voting against. “It sets a bad, bad

precedent to reveal anything done in a confidential session,” Allman said. Bronstein said the intent was not to raise the district’s legal liability, but rather to increase transparency for the public. “I think in this instance it is appropriate for that information to be shared with the public in order to be transparent and not appear as if we are trying to hide anything,” Bronstein said. “I don’t see it as giving us additional liability. We have liability whether the attorney speaks openly with us or not.” During further discussion, Bronstein attempted on multiple occasions to ask the attorney if, based on their legal knowledge, any of the maps posed potential legal problems for the district but was not allowed to receive an answer. However, Foster said the state’s Education Code has specific language that explains the boundary adjustment process the district is undergoing as well as separate redistricting processes including “rearrangement.” “So in the event that you are operating outside of the authority that’s afforded to you by statute then of course that may raise an issue that is of some concern,” Foster said.

Del Mar Heights rebuild faces $2.1M cost increase By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — The Del Mar Union School District board last week approved a change order for $2.1 million for the lease-leaseback agreements associated with the Del Mar Heights School rebuild project. The school district's staff attributed the cost increase to delays caused by previously filed litigation against the district challenging the project. Lease-leaseback agreements typically involve school districts leasing a property to a developer during the construction of a facility without having to pay for the entire project upfront. Once completed, the developer leases back the property to the school district. Since 2019, the Del Mar Union School District has planned to demolish and rebuild its 61-year-old Del Mar Heights K-6 campus, using Measure MM bonds approved in 2018. The district intends to construct one-story facilities and an expanded parking lot with a new drop-off/ pick-up lane, including on part of the existing playing field, reducing the field’s size. A group of community members called Save the Field had been trying to stop the school district’s project since June 2020 when they filed a lawsuit calling for the preservation and protection of the open spaces within the school district’s boundaries. Most recently, Save the Field appealed the San Diego Planning Commission’s unanimous approval of the Del Mar Heights rebuild project in October 2021. The decision went

before the San Diego City Council where the group’s appeal was denied. According to the staff report for Wednesday’s meeting, “due to litigation filed against the District challenging the Project, the District was not able to secure its Coastal Development Permit and was not able to issue a Notice to Proceed to commence the Work on the Project when originally intended. The delay caused by the litigation resulted in increases in costs and materials.” The approved change order will increase the costs of the project by $2,107,396. The contractor for the project is Balfour Beatty Construction, LLC. The board previously had to approve a similar change order of more than $4 million. In addition, litigation and attorney fees cost the district about $500,000, according to Chris Delehanty, assistant superintendent of business services. “Because of litigation this cost us about $8 million that we would not have had to spend,” said Trustee Gee Wah Mok. “I am incredibly disappointed that it’s gotten here… to waste $8 million for nothing… it’s entirely frivolous. As community members in this community, we should be outraged that this is happening. This is a complete waste of our money.” Del Mar Heights was supposed to reopen for the 2021-22 school year with the original schedule, but the project was delayed for a year and a half. With the new schedule, construction is expected to begin next month, with expected completion in May 2023.

Suspect jailed in brutal 1994 slaying of Oceanside woman By City News Service

OCEANSIDE — A suspect is behind bars in connection with the savage slaying of an Oceanside woman in her bed 28 years ago, authorities said. Jesus “Jesse” Velazquez Ayala, 58, was arrested Feb. 9 for allegedly murdering 54-year-old Dolores Rabaya, according to the Oceanside Police Department. Rabaya’s bloodied body was found in her Edgehill Lane home on Jan. 1, 1994. She had suffered 27 stab wounds, including six to her chest and five to her head, along with defensive wounds “showing that (she) had attempted to fight off her attacker,” OPD spokeswoman Jennifer Atenza said. The previous evening, Ayala — at the time a Carlsbad resident — and Rabaya had been seen together celebrating New Year’s Eve at a South Coast Highway bar, and they left the establishment together, according to police. “At the time of the murder, an extensive in-

vestigation was conducted by ... homicide detectives and (Ayala) was identified (as the suspected killer), but charges could not be filed due to a lack of physical evidence,” Atenza said. Additionally, Ayala had left town shortly after the slaying, allegedly after stealing a getaway vehicle from the home where he had been staying and serving as a caretaker for a family. Eventually, the investigation went cold. In 2015, however, the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office reopened the case and forensic evidence recovered at the crime scene was resubmitted for examination using state-of-theart technology. Based on the new findings, an arrest warrant was issued for Ayala in 2016. Investigators eventually tracked down the suspect in Mexico. Ayala was booked into Vista Detention Facility on suspicion of murder, burglary, auto theft and grand theft.

Carlsbad to study parcels for rezoning By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council on Feb. 15 identified several properties to further study for potential rezoning in an effort to meet the city's state-mandated affordable housing requirements. The city will first study 18 potential sites in an environmental impact report, with the exception of the “Kelly” parcel on Site 4, and include two maps in its analysis to help the council and residents to determine the best sites to help meet the city’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment, or RHNA, obligations. According to Sarah Lemons, the city's senior program manager, the first map includes all 18 potential sites, except for the “Kelly” parcel of Site 4 and “the second map removes three additional sites and includes an increased density and number of housing units that could be considered on the properties at the Carlsbad Village and Poinsettia Coaster stations (Sites 14 and 17).” After the EIR is completed in 2023, the council will make a decision on which sites to rezone. The city’s actions are aimed specifically at increasing the number of affordable housing units. The higher a project's density, the greater number of affordable units are required under the city’s Inclusionary Housing Program — a residential development with six or more units must have 15% affordability. Once the City Council approves a draft environmental impact report sometime next year, nearly 3,000 more units could become available to help meet the city's affordable housing numbers. According to Scott Donnell, a senior planner, the city must identify sites to accommodate a total of 3,873 units under its RHNA allocation, although the city has already identified roughly 1,200 units. “All of the quadrants and all of Carlsbad are somewhat going to have to handle the state,” Council-

man Peder Norby said, referring to state laws intensifying density. “Nobody wants it, and this is coming from the state.” Density in Carlsbad at 26.5 units per acre qualifies as affordable and the city’s RHNA allocation from the rezone program is at least 2,578 units. The council opted to eliminate several parcels from the analysis, including the southwest corner of Chestnut Avenue and El Camino Real, the Cottage Row apartment complex on Aviara Parkway south of Palomar Airport Road and the “Oak Yard,” a cityowned facility on Oak Avenue east of the train tracks. One parcel owner, north of the Walmart property on the northeast corner of El Camino Real and College Boulevard, known as the “Kelly” property, opted not to participate with the city’s update to its land use in the Housing Element. The result, Donnell said, is a loss of 134 units, which must be reallocated to other parcels. One of the most dispute parcels in the city, the Ponto property, was not discussed as it was removed from the city’s Housing Element last year. The property owner has also threatened the City Council with litigation. The council’s action would also allow development on areas previously zoned for industrial or com-

mercial. Two of those sites are the transit stations, which the North County Transit District has already announced plans to develop more housing. The city, though, approved analysis for more density on those sites to bring more affordable units, although the new total has not been calculated, according to Eric Lardy, the city’s principal planner. However, the city’s new inventory has at least 15% more capacity than required. Additionally, The Shoppes at Carlsbad, a site long targeted for residential development by the city, would also be in line for a higher density. “We’re damned if we do, damned if we don’t,” Councilman Keith Blackburn said. “Nobody wants

the density, and nobody wants it near where they are.” Councilman Peder Norby said while no one wants more density in some of the areas, it is being forced by the state. He was also concerned with the allocation distribution as a majority of the new units would be in the northwest quadrant of the city. Norby also said future RHNA allocations will put additional pressure on the council as the land starts to become less available to develop. Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel said all parcels should be included to give staff the most flexibility for its environmental reviews. She said once the item comes back, the council can eliminate specific parcels as needed.

Ex-finance chief pleads guilty to embezzlement By City News Service

REGION — The former director of finance for the La Jolla Music Society pleaded guilty Wednesday to embezzling more than $650,000 from the company over the course of nearly a decade. Chris Benavides, 52, entered his plea Wednesday to a federal wire fraud count for stealing from the nonprofit between October 2011 and February 2021. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Benavides used the stolen funds to pay his mortgage, credit cards and other personal expenses. Prosecutors say he issued unauthorized checks to himself, then altered the company’s accounting records to make the payments appear to be for legitimate.

the arts is what I think our city has been hoping for so long,” Councilmember Kellie Hinze said. The actual redevelopment will take some time, including the potential for more permits and approvals from the California Coastal Commission. “Having served now for three years and understanding the way that budgets work, we’re looking at some big numbers,” Hinze said. Since the site has been closed to the public since it was purchased seven years ago, the city has relied on volunteers, many of whom are connected with the arts community, to maintain the property. “I want to recognize all the great work that has been done by our community volunteers to try to make the site something that we could use,” said Mayor Catherine Blakespear. “But the reality is right now it is looking a bit derelict and it’s not available for the public and it has a lot of potential.” Funding for the redevelopment has yet to be determined but the city may explore several avenues as plans move along. State and federal grants may be available to supplement any expenditures that may come from the city’s general fund. “Recognizing that we don’t have unlimited funds but there are a variety of different places funding can come from,” Blakespear said. Naimeh Woodward, of Encinitas Friends of the Arts, a group that has presented its own vision for converting the property into a public arts center, spoke to the council and laid out other funding sources for the redevelopment. “This is a critical time because there are a lot of funds available through county grants, community enhancement and neighborhood reinvestment, private grants and national grants,” Woodward said.

Carlsbad commission adopts new electoral map By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The final map is in and not much has changed. In its final meeting, the Carlsbad Independent Redistricting Commission voted 4-3 to approve the city's new electoral map during its Feb. 17 meeting. The public submitted 76 maps, but in the end, the commission opted for a map created by the National Demographics Corporation, which was contracted by the city to facilitate and advise the commission. The map goes into effect for the 2022 election and will be the map until 2031, according to Shannon Kelly of NDC. District 1 and District 3 seats are up for election this year. The mayor's seat, a citywide election, is also up this year as Mayor Matt Hall is scheduled to retire. According to city staff, 13,500 residents will move into a new district resulting in approximately 3,800 registered voters who will now vote in the 2024 election instead of 2022. The city’s population, adjusted by the state, according to the census is 114,593 with

81,457 total registered voters, Kelly said. All the districts mimic the previous map, which was a priority for many on the commission, along with most residents who submitted comments or spoke during public comment. The city’s first-ever map

had four coastal districts along with each having segments of Coast Highway, the railroad tracks, Interstate 5, El Camino Real, business parks and bordering a neighboring city. “Nothing is going to be perfect,” Mary Stanley, vice chair of the commis-

sion, said of adopting the new map. “We’re always going to want to tweak something. We’re here to make a decision and it has the least amount of disruption.” The new map has several differences from its predecessor, which was adopted by the City Council in 2017. Notably in District 1, the boundaries extend east of El Camino Real and north of Tamarack Avenue and consist of about half of the Tamarack Point neighborhood. Additionally, the district continues south and west of El Camino Real to Cannon Road to include the neighborhood encompassing Kelly Elementary School, which was previously in District 2. In District 3, the most notable change is Bressi Ranch, which moves into D2 and out of D3, while Rancho Carrillo is split between D2 and D3. The new D3 portion of Rancho Carrillo is south of Poinsettia Lane and swings northeast to Business Park Lane and Palomar Airport Road. The border between D3 and 4 mostly follows San Marcos Creek.

But Janna says she’s angry at all the years of his life that were wasted because of systems that failed her son. “I just think why couldn’t this have happened eight years ago while he was getting sick, there’s been all the wasted years, all the trauma to him and our family.” Janna isn’t waiting around for someone else to find solutions — in early 2021 she took on a leadership role in a national selfhelp nonprofit/think tank that studies mental illness and provides services for those suffering from brain diseases like that experienced by Luke. She also does a significant amount of advocacy online through social media, sharing her expertise and experience with mental illness with other mothers and families going through the same experience. However, Janna admits that the social stigma surrounding mental illnesses and homelessness has made her hesitant to share her story publicly.

It came down to did they want to stick to the four coastal districts. There was definitely a loud voice to keep that. I think it was interesting the four maps in the end … two coast districts and two quadrants. I think the commissioners were thoughtful and, in the end, … they wanted to minimize change.” As for the city’s population, Kelly said the Census Bureau calculated Carlsbad’s population at 114,746, but the adjusted population takes into account incarcerated individuals from their last known address. public has the completely wrong idea about these illnesses, that these people are psychos and they’re going to kill people, it just isn’t true,” she said. “It’s maddening that I feel like I can’t talk publicly about this because it could hurt my son’s job prospects … these attitudes just put a terrible load on somebody with a treatable brain illness even once they get better.”

Social injustice According to Janna, a lack of county and state resources, laws like LPS, ineffectively implemented AOT programs and a systemic misunderstanding of mental illness are keeping thousands of people like Luke on the streets of San Diego. “The LPS law needs to be wholly eradicated, it’s just not based in reason,” Janna said. “It’s so hard to get a conservatorship for your adult children in this state to get them back on their feet, and there’s just no accountability built into the behavioral health system…and then there’s also no coordination at the state and local level for the people that are in charge of our kids’ health. These are medical conditions, brain diseases that only doctors should be responsible for.” “I will never give up on this, this is a social injustice, it’s a humanitarian crisis, it’s one of the last frontiers that is so egregious in terms of what our country is doing to people who have treatable medical illnesses.” EDITOR’S NOTE: This article is the second in a three-part series profiling homeless individuals and their families in North County.

Film festival opens in-person for first time since 2019 By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside International Film Festival (OIFF) kicked off Tuesday night with a red carpet ceremony to celebrate its first in-person event since 2019. Started in 2009, the weeklong film festival is an opportunity for independent filmmakers, both local and international, to showcase their work in an art-centered community like Oceanside. “We are one of the pillars of Oceanside’s cultural district,” said OIFF Executive Director Lou Niles. Downtown Oceanside is one of 14 designated cultural art districts in California. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the film festival last hosted guests in person in August 2019. In August 2020, organizers hosted a full virtual film festival and in 2021 they aired a virtual “best of” film festival in preparation to permanently move the event from August to February. Each year, the festival screens around 50 movies and hosts several events tying into the festival throughout the week. Niles said that because of the pandemic, the festival has dialed back the number of events and opted for a red carpet kickoff and added some additional movies to fill the space. This year is also special for OIFF because it is the festival organization’s first year as a stand-alone entity. Oceanside Cultural Arts

Foundation previously ran the festival. Aside from showcasing films from independent filmmakers, the festival also serves as a way to attract both locals and global visitors to Oceanside’s growing downtown area. “We have films from all over the world and a lot of local films too,” Niles said. “We want to celebrate Oceanside as well as filmmakers from around the world all week long and attract people to come see the films and spend a few nights in Oceanside, enjoying our hotels, restaurants, wineries and breweries.” The festival worked

with the Sunshine Brooks Theatre to hold the festival there and also with Oceanside Museum of Art to host the red carpet ceremony and curate an art gallery in the lobby of the theater that highlights local scenery. Following the red carpet ceremony at the Oceanside Museum of Art on Tuesday, guests moved over to the Brooks Theatre for a 20th anniversary screening of “Blue Crush,” a comingof-age movie about three young women who dream of surfing Hawaii’s North Shore and its 30-foot waves. Director John Stockwell, who played in “Top Gun,” joined “Blue Crush”

stars Kate Bosworth and Sanoe Lake for a film industry panel following Tuesday night’s screening. Moderating the panel was Carly Starr, executive director of KOCT and creative director of the film festival, who also worked on the 2002 movie. Tuesday night’s screening of “Blue Crush” came just a few weeks after wildcard Moana Jones Wong

won the 2022 Billabong Pro Pipeline, the first-ever, fulllength women's Championship Tour event. “It’s a really neat tiein to the movie that we had no way of planning,” Niles said. “‘Blue Crush’ made a big impact on women’s surfing and the surf industry in general.” Lake, who played Lena Olin in the movie, is a surfer who grew up in Hawaii and was first discovered as a teenager after surfing at North Shore. At first she was wary about doing the movie, but that quickly changed. “Getting to work with John and Brian (Keaulana) who were so committed to doing something authentic to the culture, which is really hard to do in surf, and when I look at this film and think of every single person I’ve ever talked to that’s said, ‘I just love this film,’ I have to credit John and Brian wanting to make this thing authentic,” Lake said. The Oceanside International Film Festival continues at the Brooks Theatre until Sunday, Feb. 27, ending with an award ceremony for filmmakers.

REGION — A UC-led study released Tuesday found that using headphones over listening to audio on speakers has a significant impact on listeners’ perceptions, judgments and behaviors, which could have implications for advertising, remote work and training programs, researchers found. “We find that headphones produce a phenomenon called in-head localization, which makes the speaker sound as if they’re inside your head,” according to study co-author On Amir, professor of marketing at UC San Diego Rady School of Management. “Consequently, listeners perceive the communicators as closer — both physically and socially. As a result, listeners perceive the communicator as warmer, they feel and behave more empathically toward them and they are more easily persuaded by them.” The findings, from UCSD, UCLA and UC Berkeley, were replicated in five different studies that included both fieldwork and online surveys with more than 4,000 participants. All of the studies in the paper revealed that headphone listeners felt closeness to the speaker, while others tested the medium’s

impacts on empathy and persuasion. For example, one experiment utilized the Amazon Mechanical Turk platform to survey 1,310 adults who listened to a clip of a mother and daughter talking about being homeless. Participants were randomly assigned to listen to the audio either on headphones or on speakers. According to the researchers, those who listened to the clip with headphones reported they felt more empathy toward the speakers and that the mother and daughter came across as more genuine, compared to those who listened to the same audio on speakers. Researchers said the implications of the paper are far reaching given the increasing rate of auditory messages and virtual communication. “If the aim is to have listeners feel close to the communicator, or be particularly persuaded by their message, such as in a pub-

lic service announcement, managers should consider placing their advertisement or message on a program often consumed via headphones, like a podcast,” said Alicea Lieberman, assistant professor of marketing at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. “On the other hand, if a message does not require listeners to experience any feelings of closeness to the communicator, then where the message is placed (e.g., podcast vs. talk radio) would be less essential.” Amir added that companies could send employees headphones to encourage their use in phone conversations, as the medium could increase collaboration, especially in the era of remote work. Headphones also facilitate a more loyal and engaged audience for on-air personalities, the researchers found. “Clearly, our research suggests that influencers, bloggers and podcasters want to try to make sure that people listen by headphones because that creates that attachment,” Amir said. “Our research proposes that it is not only what or whom people hear that influences their judgments, decisions and behaviors, but also how they hear the message.”

Carlsbad’s Thomas brothers preparing for jump to NFL By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Well, shoot, former Carlsbad High School standout Cameron Thomas is coming off a monster season and is projected as a first- or second-round pick in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft. Until then, the San Diego State product is working hard on preparing for the NFL Scouting Combine and Pro Day at SDSU. To train, Thomas headed to Exos’ facility in Phoenix, where the 6-foot-5, 270-pound defensive end said he is working on his technique, strength, burst off the line and diet to ensure peak performance. But Cameron isn’t alone as he goes through training to prepare for the NFL Draft. His brother, Zachary Thomas, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive tackle, is in Frisco, Texas, also training for the April draft. “The fact that I’m, shoot, this close, means the world to me. It’s a dream coming to a reality,” Cameron said of giving up his final year of eligibility to play in the NFL. “I didn’t think about coming out at the beginning of the season.” The Thomas brothers were a force this season for the Aztecs. Cameron had a breakout season in the sack column, recording a teamhigh 11.5 en route to being named Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year. He also made the watch lists for the Bronko Nagurksi and Chuck Bednarik awards, which honor the top defen-

I’ve been to New Hampshire a million times!” But wait, there’s more! In order to collect the prize roundtrip airfare, she’ll have to travel to Los Angeles again to fly to Manchester, New Hampshire. “I just wish it was Tahiti ... or Bora Bora.

ZACHARY Regardless, THOMAS with treatment twice per day, Cameron said his training with Exos has him on the right path, and he’s ready to take on the NFL

Combine, March 1-7 in Indianapolis. “They just handle this process really well,” Cameron said of Exos. “Whether it’s the personal training … or off the field preparing your meals and shakes.” Cameron's journey to projected first- or second-round pick started slowly at SDSU. He redshirted his freshman year, having played on special teams in just one game in 2018. Cameron weighed just 227 pounds, which is light for a defensive end, so in the offseason gaining weight and

strength was a priority. Cameron said he carried the momentum from his special teams appearance into the next season. He switched positions, moving to defensive tackle, where he started 12 of 13 games, recorded 5.5 sacks and was named first-team All-Mountain West by the coaches. In his redshirt sophomore season, he played both defensive tackle and end, where he had 35 tackles, four sacks and was again named first-team All-MWC. Among the highlights of his final campaign for

Eager Padres fans must wait, hope GOATs: The greatest from a life in sports sports talk jay paris

T

hose pledging allegiance to the Padres have done their part: rinse, spit and get fired up for the season. Padres fans survived last year’s carnival ride and are hyped about this year. They persevered that emotional roller-coaster of the local nine looking like champions for the first half of season, which only led to an epic face-plant for the second part of it. That resulted in a distant and familiar third-place finish in the NL West as yet again the Padres required binoculars to find the firstplace San Francisco Giants. But that’s baseball and just when do we get to see it again? Padres diehards, and their casual followers, need help and in a hurry. It’s past time for our national pastime to quit stranding negotiators and bring home a solution. The owners and the players remain knotted in a contract dispute, with the

parties seeking a way to divide a financial pie that seems to be large enough for everybody. Then again, as this owner-driven lockout threatens to erase more spring training games and, gasp, opening day, the two sides so far are keen at pointing fingers. The dust-up is mostly about money and that’s as surprising as the Padres pointing manager Jayce Tingler toward the exit following their most recent flop. Other issues are about service time, arbitration eligibility and the philosophy that has helped derailed the game — teams tanking

to soften their bottom line with labor costs while securing draft picks for a potential better day. That’s a lot for anyone to digest, which is why we spoke with Cardiff’s Barry Axelrod. Few baseball folks are as tuned in as Axelrod, a celebrated player agent before switching to the management side late in his career to assist the late Kevin Towers, when he was running the Arizona Diamondbacks. Axelrod has the scars from six baseball work stoppages through his life spent in the sport. “I know as much as any-

one else knows and it’s difficult because no one knows anything,” Axelrod, 75, said. “But I do have a historical perspective and these things are the most ‘un-fun’ things that can happen in so many ways. “It’s not only the players not being able to be in camp and get ready for the baseball season. Those guys have such a routine for where they do things on a certain day, at a certain hour, and they are lost right now.” Some of those in uniform have a nest egg to soften the financial blow. Countless more are trying to earn their major league stripes with pockets filled with more lint than cash. The owners, as well, are missing revenue streams that were knee-capped during the 2020 season that was compromised by COVID-19. “But it’s so much more far-reaching than that,” said Axelrod, whose clients included former Padres Jake Peavy and Phil Nevin and Baseball Hall of Famer Craig Biggio. “What about these spring training towns with their economical well-being being connected to baseball?” The ball is in the owners’ court as Axelrod stressed that a work stoppage that was fueled by a lockout has never resulted in a lost regular season game. That wasn’t the case when the players went on strike in 1981 and 1994-95. Axelrod notes that this stoppage is as much about owner vs. owner as it is owner vs. player. The big-market teams are reluctant to keep sharing their revenues with the smaller markets, especially those that decline to field competitive teams. “It seems like the owners are way different than before,” Axelrod said. “In this case it’s billionaires vs. billionaires with large egos and many of those teams are run by corporations that don’t have the same sensibilities as the owners before, back when many were family operations.” Axelrod isn’t all doomand-gloom. Optimism peeks through with the parties meeting in person and the history lessons Axelrod hopes that others absorbed. “The 1994-95 strike really eroded the fan base” he said. “I believe the only reason it came back was the show Mark McGwire-Sammy Sosa (home run chase) put on and Cal Ripken Jr. chasing Lou Gehrig’s record.” Round-and-round these negotiators go, with the Padres’ Ron Fowler, a Rancho Santa Fe resident, having a seat at the table. Hopefully a Padre is soon circling the bases for a season whose start is in jeopardy. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him at jparis_sports

ike you, I have been blessed to have sports in my life. For that, I thank my father, who brought me to almost every sporting event he attended, introducing me to baseball, football and basketball at a young age. My five greatest sport moments are archived and chilled inside my head. Many of these memories are from growing up in Pittsburgh, never thinking I would be a sports radio host. 1. Pittsburgh Steelers winning their first Super Bowl; 2. Meeting Roberto Clemente when I was 12 years old and shaking his hand (I didn’t wash it for months); 3. 1980 USA Olympic hockey team upsetting the USSR and Finland to win the seemingly impossible gold medal. 4. The “Immaculate Reception” in 1972 between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders; 5. As a second-grader at Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic School, feeling the impact of the Pirates’ Bill Mazeroski’s walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series against the Yankees. Over the years, I have been to a World Series, Super Bowl and NBA Finals. I’ve seen some pretty incredible performances over thousands of games and seen many of the Greatest of All Time, or GOATs, do their thing: Basketball players: Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; College fight songs: “On Wisconsin,” Michigan’s “Hail to the Victors” and Notre Dame’s “Victory March”; NFL running backs: Barry Sanders, Tony Dorsett, Franco Harris, Earl Campbell and Walter Payton; Overachiever QBs: Tom Brady, Kurt Warner, Phil Simms, Drew Brees, Fran Tarkenton and Johnny Unitas; Pure shooters: Pete Maravich, Kobe Bryant, Steph Curry, Ray Allen, Larry Bird, JJ Redick, and Jerry West; Dunkers: Julius (Dr. J) Erving, Darryl Dawkins, Darrell Griffith, David Thompson and Clyde Drexler; Pure hitters: Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, Pete

SDA reaches CIF title game San Marcos honors Super Bowl champ By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — The temperatures may have been dropping in North County, but the San Dieguito boys varsity basketball team stayed hot this week and punched its ticket to the CIF championship game. The top-seeded Mustangs led from start to finish on Tuesday night at home against Grossmont High School. And despite an attempt at a comeback from the Foothillers, San Dieguito Academy pulled away to clinch a 66-54 win and a trip to Thursday night’s CIF Division III Championship. (Thursday’s championship game was played after this edition of The Coast News went to press. More on that game can be found at thecoastnews.com.) Tuesday’s victory accomplished a goal set before the season by head coach Jason Stewart. A year ago, the Mustangs advanced to the CIF semifinals but were unable to move past rival, and eventual CIF champion, Sage Creek. When this season started, Stewart told his team the goal was to make it further than that. With their victory Tuesday, the Mustangs (19-7) achieved one goal, but a second one remained. “Listen we have one more to go,” Stewart told

The Coast News following Tuesday’s win. “Why come this far and not try to win it all? So we’ve come this far and that’s our focus.” The Mustangs were led on Tuesday, as they have been all season, by their core of senior playmakers, James and John Hapgood and Owen Isachsen, who established a physical style of play from the start. John Hapgood led all scorers with 18 points, his twin brother James had 16 and Isachsen added 15. “Those guys are dynamite,” Stewart said of his twin stars. “I think if there is a college, a lower-level Division 1, that is interested in guys who play bigger than their size and have intuition

for the game, I think that these guys are both underrated.” San Dieguito jumped out to a fast 12-0 lead and never trailed. But the Foothillers did not go away quietly. With about 3 minutes remaining, they cut the lead to just two points. But the Mustangs stayed true to their game plan and held off the attack. “They are a wellcoached team, a very wellcoached team,” Stewart said. “They executed well, and their game plan was coming to fruition. They want you to get tired and they get stronger as the game goes on.” The Mustangs played No. 3 seed Scripps Ranch (21-10) in Thursday’s final at San Marcos High School. The Falcons, of the City League, advanced with a 6158 win over second-seeded Madison on Tuesday. Before playing the neutral-site final, Stewart had nothing but praise for the SDA fans who turned out for Tuesday’s home win. “Big credit to all the Mustang faithful who came out here tonight,” Stewart said following the semifinal win. “This atmosphere really puts it over the top. I really am grateful for them making their voice heard. … Our crowd was amazing, it was amazing.”

SAN MARCOS — Six years after he left the halls of San Marcos High School, Terrell Burgess came back as a Super Bowl champion. The 6-foot, 200-pound safety lifted the Lombardi Trophy on Feb. 13 after his Los Angeles Rams slipped past Cincinnati, 23-20, at SoFi Stadium in L.A. Burgess returned to his hometown to be honored at SMHS and with a proclamation from Mayor Rebecca Jones and the City Council on Feb. 22. “We moved here to San Marcos in 2005, me with four children,” Burgess’ mother, Ingrid, said at the meeting. “You guys have embraced us from the beginning, and we thank you for the support.” As for Burgess, he spent his childhood playing baseball, basketball and football, excelling in the latter and earning a scholarship to the University of Utah, where he broke out during his senior season. He started all 14 games at strong safety, where he racked up 81 tackles and one interception as he helped lead the Utes to the Pac-12 title game against Oregon. He was selected in the third round of the 2020 draft by the Rams. His rookie season was cut short when he suffered

a season-ending broken ankle in a Monday night game against Chicago. Burgess, though, was relentless in his recovery and regained his spot on special teams and as the backup strong safety. This year, though, the Rams made several big moves and navigated the playoffs to reach the Super Bowl, a sort-of “home” game for Burgess. He said his family was able to be there. “It was pretty cool, especially being close to home,” Burgess said of the Super Bowl win. “My family was able to come see me play and I’m just glad we were able to come out with a win. No one expected us

to get there and it was a true testament to how our team worked all season.” On the season, he recorded 10 tackles, including five in a 27-24 loss against rival San Francisco in the last week of the regular season. The Rams avenged the loss with a 2017 win in the NFC Championship game. In the playoffs, Burgess tallied six tackles, including five against Arizona in the Wild Card round, his best performance as a pro. As for the being recognized by the city, Burgess said he was grateful and thankful. “It really means a lot, especially because I love San Marcos,” Burgess said. “It means a lot that they would take the time to recognize me and the achievements. “It took a lot to get to this point. Not just me, but my family, teammates and I’m just really appreciative.” Quintero recognized Also celebrated at the meeting was Seth Quintero, a 19-year-old Mission Hills grad who set an alltime record by winning 12 stages at the Dakar Rally — a long-distance off-road racing event that dates to 1979 — last month in Saudi Arabia.

 CPUC delays closely watched decision on NEM By Steve Puterski

REGION — The California Public Utilities Commission continues to deliberate rooftop solar reform, targeting the industry’s popular and controversial net energy metering program, resulting in one of the agency’s most anticipated rulings in years. The net energy metering, or NEM, program was initiated 26 years ago to spur mass adoption of rooftop solar. As a result, more than 1 million homes in California now have rooftop solar. However, once the state regulatory body announced submissions for rooftop solar reform early last year, many in the industry drew lines and prepared for battle. The CPUC released its draft proposal in December and those advocating for rooftop solar saw it as an attack on the industry, adoption and ability to meet the

increase of 2,000 postings from the previous quarter, according to the report. The city’s jobless rate has dropped steadily over the past 21 months, from a staggering 13.8% shortly after the onset of the pandemic to its current 3.4% unemployment rate — just slightly above its pre-pandemic unemployment rate of 2.9%. Carlsbad’s economic growth was due to a variety of reasons, including a steadily declining unemployment rate since March 2020. Graphic courtesy of City of Carlsbad “Many workplaces ex-

state’s climate goals. Reform advocates said the proposal didn’t go far enough, while others believed it was a good start to combat the $3.4 billion cost shift and to allow more opportunities for low-income homeowners and renters. Alex Williams, of Solar Energy Partners in Oceanside, said while some reforms are needed, rooftop solar is the best way forward. Williams acknowledged the need to address the cost shift and some reforms, while others in the solar industry have not. “It’s a great sign for the consumer, for me,” Williams said of the delay. “Where’s the value going to land? It’s indisputable that solar creates a ton of value. The question is who captures that value? Are we going to allow the utility companies to take all the value and profit from solar or are we going to allow the customer … to participate in it.” The NEM program offers customers a much cheaper option to owning and paying utility companies through subsidies. Haney Hong, CEO of

the San Diego Taxpayers Association, recently revealed in an op-ed in the San Diego Union-Tribune his total bill for 2021 was just $56.56. He said he was floored at how little he had to pay San Diego Gas & Electric. Part of the NEM program is those who install rooftop solar are paid a retail rate of about $0.31 per kilowatt-hour of excess electricity from SDG&E. The utility, along with others in the state, has long complained the retail rate is too excessive and shifts the burden of fixed costs — grid upgrades, wildfire mitigation and others — onto those without rooftop solar. CPUC’s proposed decision exploded as celebrities and politicians, including NBA legend Bill Walton and Gov. Gavin Newsom, voiced their opinions for the state utility agency to step back and reconsider the proposal. While the effort seemed to work, Kathy Fairbanks, of Affordable Clean Energy for All, said the delay was mostly due to the seating of two new commissioners appointed by Newsom. Hong, meanwhile, said

he wrote his op-ed piece to show there is a problem with the current NEM structure. He said it’s not fair for him and others with rooftop solar to pay pennies on the dollar compared to low-income customers and others without solar. “Like most things in public policy, they are much more complicated and different once you look under the hood,” Hong said. “Once you start to look under the hood with solar, you find some interesting things.” According to Hong, some of those "interesting things" are unintended consequences of the NEM program's incentivization. The rate structure includes $0.20 of every dollar of a non-solar customer’s electric bill is financing rooftop solar customers, Hong said, while citing studies from Berkeley and elsewhere. Hong believes CPUC is not going far enough with rate reform, and once a hearing is set, Hong and the San Diego Taxpayers Association will support such action. “You go into solar because you’re trying to es-

cape the growing rates,” Hong said. “The pressures keep pushing rates up. That happens because we keep asking for things. We want more solar, we want more wildfire (mitigation). That cash has to come from somewhere.” Williams noted the NEM program established early on that if it gave the customer value, they would adopt solar. But if it’s pushed to the utility, the consumer will not adopt. The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada stopped its NEM program several years ago for similar reasons and issues currently facing California (Nevada has since relaunched its NEM program to help implement a state law) Williams said in Nevada, the utility regulatory authority pushed the value back to its side of the meter, which crushed the state's solar industry. However, Williams believes CPUC understands the value should instead be proportionate and favor the customer, not the petroleum industry, which already receives large subsidies.

tended remote work indefinitely, which is an indicator of continued operational uncertainty for some industries that rely on people being on-site, like manufacturing,” Sanford said. “As with delta, the impact of the omicron surge in San Diego County was blunted, in part by high vaccination rates and continued capacity in the region’s health care system.” Carlsbad’s economy is largely dependent on manufacturing, hospitality and food services, and professional, scientific and technical services jobs (including innovation industries such as tech, life sciences). According to the report, the city exceeds the nation-

al average in these sectors, which are typically more insulated from economic recessions and “represent significant job growth in the economy.” Additionally, business licenses citywide have returned to normal levels, with a total of 2,415 business licenses issued last quarter, including 1,035 non-residential, 598 residential, and 782 outsidethe-city licenses, according to the report. “Carlsbad actually lost fewer businesses during the pandemic than the 18 months prior to the pandemic,” the report states. In 2019, the household median income in Carlsbad was $123,409, far exceed-

ing the county’s income levels for the same year at $79,324. The city’s 2019 per capita income was $63,079, more than $20,000 higher than the County of San Diego ($40,238). Like most cities, Carlsbad’s tourism industry was impacted by a wave of COVID-19 health restrictions that dampened travel and tourism industries around the world. And while the city’s hotel occupancy rate typically declines this time of year (56.9% occupancy rate in December), the occupancy rate is well-ahead of 2020 numbers and just slightly behind pre-pandemic occupancy rates in 2019. “Tourism leaders spec-

ulate the surge in cases caused by the Delta and Omicron variants have continued to impact travel to Carlsbad, but that trends are normalizing," a report states. Due to limited housing supply and strong demand, Carlsbad’s home values rose 32% over the past year. In December 2021, Carlsbad’s median house price rose $1.3 million, a 5% gain from the previous quarter. “This value is seasonally adjusted and only includes the middle price tier of homes,” Sanford said. “The forecast for the next year shows values increasing an additional 21% from today's prices.”

able Firearm Ordinance, prohibiting the possession, purchase, sale, receipt and transportation of non-serialized, unfinished frames and receivers, and non- serialized firearms. California Attorney General Rob Bonta voiced his full support for the legislation. “Today, we are mounting a stand against the gun lobby and the sickening wave of gun violence that plagues our streets,” he said. “You can’t talk about rising crime without talking about the rise in gun violence.” According to the Public Policy Institute of California, in 2020, California saw a rise of more than 500 homicides — the largest jump in state history since record-keeping began in 1960. Victims were predominantly Black and Latino, male, and killed by guns on streets, parking lots or in vehicles. The Los Angeles Times reported that 2021 marked a 15-year high in homicides and gun violence in the city. Newsom remarked that the modern gun safety

movement began in California, citing then-Governor Ronald Reagan's push against the Black Panthers. The governor noted this 1967 move likely had “a racial component,” but that gun control legislation has evolved in the state over time, including the assault weapon ban spurred by a school shooting in Stockton in 1989. Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, said it was time to hold the firearm industry accountable. “Every industry in the United States is held responsible for the products they sell, except one. The gun industry,” he said. Newsom agreed. “We are all victims of their greed, their avarice,'' he said. “We’ll start playing by their rules.” In response to a reporter's question about a possible ballot measure from firearm advocacy groups or manufacturers to dismiss the proposed legislation, Newsom was confident. “Bring it on,” he said. “They’ll be crushed. The people of California have no patience for gun violence.”

ers,” according to an FPC statement. “Newsom’s proposed policies are just modern-day Jim Crow laws designed to suppress the exercise of human rights, increase law enforcement encounters, and incarcerate for non-violent crimes the people that the tyrants who run California don’t like. But Newsom and his gang of government thugs can't stop the signal. “It’s clear that Newsom is using the polarizing issue of unconstitutional and immoral gun control to distract from his growing mountain of failing policies and constant political embarrassments. However, if the state enacts these incredibly abusive policies, the Firearms Policy Coalition will not hesitate to act quickly and aggressively to protect the rights and property of gun owners.” San Diego County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer said she supports the proposed legislation, particularly as a parent.

‘WE ARE all victims of their greed, their avarice,’’ Newsom said. “We’ll start playing by their rules.” File photo

“I don’t want a future where she has to practice active shooter drills,” she said of her daughter. “Ghost gun laws will save lives and target the manufacturers of untraceable weapons.” Ghost guns are unregulated firearms that lack serial numbers by which they can be identified and are typically assembled from purchased or homemade components. Minors

or those normally prohibited from owning firearms can purchase such a weapon without a background check. The county banned such weapons in January, following the lead of the city of San Diego, which banned them in September.

t appears I am just fruit-stupid. When we first moved here, a tree in our backyard dumped pounds and pounds of beautiful, big apricots onto the ground every summer. At first I tried to pick them, but then they just spoiled in the bag. Even if we ate all we could, there were dozens left. I tried to pawn them off on friends, but never had many takers. I was awash in apricots. Why didn’t I stand for hours in the hot kitchen, peeling, pitting and stirring and pouring and making them into jam? Because it would have meant standing for hours in a hot kitchen, peeling and pitting and stirring and pouring. I’d have made a lousy pioneer wife. What never occurred to me was the most obvious. Every morning now, with my oatmeal, I eat apricot sauce. Yes, it is just mashed up apricots in a jar, sort of like what used to be all over my lawn. They’re not so mashed up as to be baby food, but not sweetened like jam. It is delicious and I am paying $3 a jar for it. Had I realized how tasty this basic concoction was, I might have even been willing to stand in that hot kitchen long enough to peel some of those apricots and dump then into a pot.

Solana Beach administrator Lee honored By Tigist Layne

SOLANA BEACH — The Solana Beach School District recently announced that Sabrina Lee, assistant superintendent of instructional services, has been named the Curriculum and Instruction Administrator of the Year by the Association of California School Administrators, or ACSA, Region 18.

Midway evaluator altered scores  Fairgrounds exec corroborates bid-rigging claims By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — Last week, the transcript of a third deposition was released that corroborates claims that Del Mar Fairgrounds CEO Carlene Moore had twice fraudulently changed applicants’ scores during the bid process to ensure Ray Cammack Shows received the midway contract in 2020 for last year’s county fair, which was later canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest testimony in a lawsuit against the fairgrounds alleging corruption, favoritism and bid-rigging comes from Melinda Carmichael, chief administrative officer for the Del Mar Fairgrounds,

Wishful thinking? Bullet trains and brown bears hit the road e’louise ondash

I

’m dreaming of a bullet train and Bear Camp. Imagine … getting from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 2.5 hours without getting on an airplane and all that this entails these days. It’s a dream envisioned by many (count me in), but the story of California’s bullet train is long, complicated, controversial, costly and still far from finished. In fact, it may never be. According to a recent story from the nonpartisan CalMatters online news organization, the estimated cost of the high-speed train has gone from $33 billion to about $100 billion. The first leg was supposed to be a 171-mile starter line — double-tracked and electrified — between Merced and Bakersfield. Some criticize this decision. After all, they ask, how many people travel from Merced to Bakersfield and back? Also, “construction crews have only begun to build roadbed for the San Joaquin Valley segment and no track has been laid,” writes veteran journalist Dan Walters. “Optimistically, it will be almost a decade before passengers can ride on it.” The grand bullet train plan also calls for feeder lines that would connect with the main line. Some exist now; some don’t, and there have been

therapeutic. The tree scarcely bears anymore, as if to taunt me for my shortsightedness. And to add to my embarrassment, across the yard stands a pomegranate tree. For several years now, we have had bowls full of them, but all I ever saw was a fetching, fall centerpiece. I have no vision. As anyone who has been to a supermarket lately knows, pomegranates became the darling of the health food world and I find it really annoying. It means my husband was right. Long before some clever fellows had their stroke of marketing genius, my husband made our kitchen look like the scene of an axe murder every November. Flinging bright red juice from wall to wall, he squeezes the messy pomegranates of their now tres fashionable juice. Why didn’t I think about mixing it with vodka? That certainly would have made the whole cleanup process less painful. Why didn’t I think about mixing it with face

many changes along the way. Additionally, there’s both a fight for funding and lack of agreement on how the money should be spent. Dreamers (count me in) are wondering whether the bullet train will ever happen. Circumstances are confusing and disappointing. I would love to hop aboard the Metrolink or Amtrak out of Oceanside and connect with the bullet train in Los Angeles. The entire trip to the Bay Area could be convenient and restful. No TSA hassles, long lines, tight seating or middle seats. If similar to Amtrak, there would be room to work, room to snooze, a view from every seat and free Wi-Fi. Perhaps even a dining car. Imagine … Another dream: A few cream and tea? And who are these people who can think of martinis and bubble bath in the same breath? It seems that hundreds of pomegranate products are now on the market, from skin cream to gumdrops, and the number of Americans buying fresh pomegranates has reportedly quadrupled since 2002. I have my pride, but if the trend continues, you just might see me sitting in my little roadside pomegranate booth, trading in red gold. I now worry that some health-conscious burglar may sneak in one dark night and strip our little trend-setting tree. I wonder what the stats are on fruit-napping? I need to cash in on this trend just to supplement our retirement, because if even half the claims about the fairly tasteless red juice are true, my fruit-ingesting spouse may well live forever. I’m in the mood for something retro. I believe I’ll have an apple. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who likes her fruit simple. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

Now Natural Habitat Adventures, which has been providing “eco-conscious expeditions” and close-encounter animal experiences around the globe since 1985, has a new offering. Called Alaska Bear Camp, the four-night, fiveday tour (offered May 24 – Aug. 23) starts with a short flight from Homer, Alaska, and ends at a luxury 14-guest campsite on private land within Lake Clark National Park. The camp “is surrounded by rich bear habitat, and bears are often on view directly in front of the camp, as well as on the shoreline and in the surrounding meadows.” The experience promises “multiple bear-viewing opportunities from the camp’s two elevated viewing platforms and on guided walks with … experienced bear naturalists.” Cost: $4,895 per person (double occupancy). This includes services of guides and staff, all meals, most gratuities, airport transfers, entrance fees, taxes and permits. It does not include airfare to Alaska.

Behold the farm box on your doorstep soul

hat started as delivering extra vegetables to fellow teachers where his wife taught school in Oceanside has grown to hundreds of deliveries across North San Diego County. Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a spiritual thing on so many levels, and why I'm choosing this as a topic for this week's column. I started my ordering during the first month of the lockdown. When I received my first delivery, the skies parted, and the angels began to sing. The rainbow of colors of the assortment of fresh certified organic vegetables and fruits in this farm-fresh CSA box had me lay it out and start taking Instagram pics and videos of all the goodness, sharing my abundance with friends and family. Several years into the delivery program, it is still like Christmas every week. Not knowing what will arrive and being so pleased with the choices in the farm box is always intoxicating. Being challenged with produce that I may not be familiar with, I came across the dedicated sites for the Yasukochi Family Farms Instagram and Facebook accounts, looking online for tips on incorporating some items into recipes. It is here that I was introduced to farmer Donal Yasukochi and his sweet array of cooking tips for each week's bounty.

I came to find out that the CSA box delivery resulted from the fine work of Donal’s daughter, Brianne, who often helped with the endearing cooking segments online. She built the Instagram and Facebook pages that instantly caught on with hundreds of grateful local families while all the farmers’ markets closed during the pandemic. With farms in Bonsall, Fallbrook and Carlsbad, the Yasukochis represent one of the last thriving California-grown family produce farms, one that spans over a hundred years, with an amazing ancestral history. Being a small part of what keeps this heritage alive is what sets my soul on fire. I asked Farmer Donal what he loves about farming and why he will leave this legacy to his daughter for a fourth generation. “It’s a challenge to keep our family farm going; my family has been farming

here for 100 years. We have had the same employees for over 30 years. We have a small niche that connects our farm to the consumer. The community understands the importance of organic farming and supports us. We are very grateful for all our customers in CSA as well as the farmers markets we attend.” Said one subscriber who prides herself on being a food aficionado and environmentalist: “Besides the wonderful array of beautiful fresh organic vegetables that is exciting to receive each week, I don’t need to second guess whether the items are truly organic. Knowing they are coming directly from local farmers and delivered to my door keeps my carbon footprint down, and I feel like this is a small part to play toward sustainability.” People love this program and get a weekly email with a preview of what's coming. Items can

be added to the order, such as flowers, honey, eggs, berries and other seasonal items from neighboring farms, contributing to the subscription boxes delivered free each week. Environmental benefits aside, being a part of this program makes you feel good in a way that also builds community. Many of the enthusiastic recipients of the weekly farm box connect on another Facebook site page called Yasukochi Family Farms Farm Box Fun, where subscribers to the CSA share pictures of each other's boxes with zeal, and recipes are proudly shared between foodies. It really is fun. And the heart opening that occurs knowing you have contributed to the continuation of this viable agricultural industry is a soulful expression of love. Keep the fire burning, Donal and Brianne. We love our Yasukochi farm box delivery!

My main emphasis on getting it back was to review the materials and make sure that I had the most appropriate scores,” Carmichael said.

RANCHO SANTA FE — An animal rights group has filed a lawsuit against two local restaurants for allegedly selling foie gras in defiance of a ban on the dish’s sale in California eateries. The suit filed Friday in San Diego Superior Court by the Animal Protection and Rescue League alleges that Mister A’s in Bankers Hill and Mille Fleurs in Rancho Santa Fe have been selling foie gras from force-fed ducks despite California restaurants being banned from doing so. According to the APRL, foie gras is produced by placing metal pipes into the throats of ducks and force feeding them, causing their livers to swell up to 12 times their normal size. Representatives from the restaurants did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Also named as a defendant is Bertrand Hug, who owns both restaurants. Hug told the Rancho Santa Fe Review last month that he was selling Mister A’s, but would remain involved with Mille Fleurs’ daily operations. Attorney Bryan Pease, representing APRL in the suit, said the group has held protests over the the 22nd DAA was required to divulge publicly all information relating to the RFP and its scoring. She also testifies that she shredded the previous scoresheets after changing the scores. Ryan Knoll, attorney for the 22nd District Agricultural Association, issued a response on behalf of his client regarding Carmichael’s admission to changing the scores and disposing of the scoresheet. “In her deposition testimony, Ms. Carmichael made it clear she stands by her evaluation of the Talley Amusements proposal and that Carlene Moore did not tell her to change her score or even suggest that she do so,” the statement reads. “Furthermore, she testified that concerns about Talley’s ability to operate the fair safely in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Talley Amusements’ attempt to subvert RFP 2005’s requirement that pro-

years outside both restaurants, which led to the eateries temporarily removing foie gras from their menus, only to “quietly re-add it back to the menu later when they thought no one was looking.” The state’s ban was recently challenged by foie gras producers from outside California. A federal judge ruled in 2020 that the ban would remain in place for restaurants and retailers, but customers could purchase foie gras from out of state and have it delivered to them.

Tegna, including KFMB-TV, will sell to private firms REGION — Television broadcast company Tegna — which owns San Diego-based KFMB-TV (CBS8) — agreed today to sell to private equity firms Standard General and Apollo for $24 per share. According to a Tegna statement, the transaction has an enterprise value of around $8.6 billion, including the assumption of debt. “We are pleased to have reached this agreement with Standard General, which follows a thorough review of acquisition proposals received by the company,’’ said Howard Elias, chairman of the Tegposers supply references from three separate fair organizations, prompted her to score its proposal with less confidence than RCS’s proposal. The RCS proposal received significantly higher technical, including safety, scores than the Talley Amusements bid.” Carmichael also confirms in her testimony that Moore promoted her to her current role as a chief administrative officer in Oct. 2021, soon after the scoring process. The promotion included a roughly 10% salary increase. “It’s amazing that after admitting changing the score to make the loser of an $80 million contract the winner and then shredding the evidence that she would get promoted to the number 2 position at the 22nd DAA, Moot said. “Why would the board condone such conduct by awarding the contract to RCS who they know did not actually win the bid?” VOLUNTEER

na board, which approved the deal unanimously. “After evaluating this opportunity against Tegna’s standalone prospects and other strategic alternatives, our board concluded that this transaction maximizes value for Tegna shareholders.’’ Tegna owns 64 stations in 51 markets and will become the nation’s “largest minority-owned, woman-led broadcast group,’’ pending completion of the sale, officials said. The transaction is subject to approval by Tegna shareholders, regulatory approvals, and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in the second half of 2022. If the sale goes through, Deb McDermott will become CEO and Soo Kim will serve as chairman of a new board. McDermott is CEO of Standard Media and has more than 20 years of experience leading broadcast groups, including previously serving as COO of Media General and as CEO and president of Young Broadcasting. Kim is a founding partner of Standard General. Upon completion of the transaction, Tegna will become a private company and its shares will no longer be traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Carmichael was also previously named in testimony by Michael Ceragioli, a retired fairgrounds administrator, and Flourney. Ceragioli said he heard Moore ask for Carmichael’s scoring sheet, and tell Flournoy, “We might have to change her score.” Ceragioli said that Carmichael’s scores were then changed a second time with Ray Cammack Shows coming out as the winner. Flourney’s testimony also confirmed that the scores were changed to award the contract to RCS and that Carmichael was directly involved in that process. But in a statement to The Coast News, the 22nd DAA noted “it is important to remember that no one won RFP 20-05, and no one lost RFP 20-05. The contract was never awarded to anyone because COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the fair.”

Sounds of surfing water spot chris ahrens “Man, your music sounds like riding a wave.” — Surf legend Lance Carson to Bel-Airs band member Paul Johnson, circa 1962

S

urfing remains the only sport in the world (the possible exception being curling, which only those with finely tuned dog whistle auditory capabilities can hear) with its own music. And so there I was last Saturday, grooving to the surf beat of my own lousy drummer while driving toward the Pacific on Oceanside Boulevard when I came upon an unlikely sign reading, “Cinematic Arts and Sound.” Thinking they might have a part I needed for my camera, I wandered into 5,000 square feet of movie and sound-making equipment to find myself in a scene as unlikely as Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory. While co-owner John MacDonald didn’t have the needed part, he kindly gave me materials with which to improvise. John, along with his brother Jesse, Steve Evans, Donovan Stapleton and Jaqi Beasley, runs this world-class recording and film studio. He told me that his brother, Cinematic’s founder, had left a successful business in LA to live near to the beach, surf without massive crowds chocking each wave, work and simply live. The conversation with John, which drifted from Great Wall of China leaper Danny Way’s musical production talents to the brilliance of Switchfoot and Taylor Steele, soon had me strumming “Miserlou” in my head while recalling a conversation I once had with Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman about recording a surf album with dear-

ly departed Dick Dale, aka King of the Surf Guitar.) Surf bands are nothing new, but most of them merely play the soundtrack to the waves while few ride along to the music. Undoubtably the best surf band the world has ever seen was the shortly lived and flatly named, The Surfers. The trio consisted of Kelly Slater, Rob Machado and Peter King. Next in line for the crown would be three-time world surfing champion Tom Curren and his group known simply as the “Tom Curren Band.” Switchfoot, with three excellent surfers, Jon and Tim Foreman and Chad Butler, rate high in the rankings, as does Denny Aaberg’s “The Wrinkled Teenagers.” Add in Borracho y loco, the Mar Dels’ Rod Piazza’s Mighty Flyers, Bill Stewart, and the great Peter Tripp Sprague and we’ve got ourselves a festival culminating in a battle of the surf bands. Here’s how I see it working: First, there’s a surf contest (thank goodness The Surfers, who would slaughter all comers, are no longer together) where points are given for wave riding. Then there’s the musical portion where an audience rates the music on, say, a 10-point scale. I haven’t asked anyone, but I’m thinking we could run the contest on Oceanside Boulevard and move the musical portion two blocks up to Cinematic’s parking lot. Or, we could do it all in Stewy’s (Bill Stewart’s) Fun House after surfing Trestles, which is just down the street. Or maybe, we do it all at Doheny, which has surf and a large grassy area for music lovers. I know it’s just a dream, but a dream I can hear, taste and celebrate. Think how fun it would be! Until then, anyone wanting to record music or make a movie of any kind, no longer needs to brave the Hollywood traffic. It’s all right here in beautiful downtown Oceanside.

Family-owned Ki’s Restaurant is a Cardiff jewel lick the plate david boylan

G

iven the rapidly changing and ever more competitive restaurant landscape in coastal North County, I’m making it a point to revisit some of those that have stood the test of time. Ki’s Restaurant in Cardiff is a prime example and one that I got to know a few years back through a Coast News column and radio show with Lorraine Harland, who owns Ki’s with her husband, Barry Holcomb. We’ve reacquainted recently through a spin class at the Ecke YMCA, and I thought it would be fun to let them share their story in this week’s column. LTP: Let’s start from the beginning, where did you and Barry grow up and what are some of your earliest culinary memories? Barry: I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, and my earliest food memories are White Castles — my mom used to take me there every so often after picking me up from school. Once I moved to California when I was 15, our family used to always go to Tony’s Jacal. My mom took a job at a health food store and from then on, she really got into cooking healthful meals. Lorraine: Vancouver, Canada, and I don’t have a lot of great culinary memories. My mom, while not an outstanding cook, was certainly proficient. My family has a ranching background — my father grew up on a ranch in southern Alberta and still maintained a herd of cattle there until he died in 2007. My best culinary mem-

ory was when we had Christmas dinner at my aunt’s house. She was Italian and cooked lasagna and cannelloni. I was always excited when it was her turn to host the big family dinners. LTP: Did either of you have restaurant gigs growing up? Barry: I was a busboy at the Maven Restaurant in Mission Valley when I was 15, then I got into the bar business and worked as a bartender at the Distillery in Solana Beach and several other places until I landed at Dini’s in Del Mar. Lorraine: Mine was at a pancake house in Victoria during university. They were grueling, long shifts, dealing with the tourist crowds that came in off the cruise boats. The restaurants I worked in after that were mainly dinner service, which is a little better — not so much of the “here’s your food, here’s your bill.”

Pet of the Week Theodore is pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 1½-year-old, 68-pound, male Labrador retriever/ pit bull mix.

The $145 adoption fee includes medical exam, neuter, up-to-date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if his new home is in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society’s Department of Animal Services.

LTP: How did you meet and what brought you to Encinitas? Lorraine: When I moved down to San Diego, I got a job as a cocktail waitress at a restaurant in Del Mar called Dini’s and Barry was the bartender there. When I first started, I rarely worked with him because we had different shifts, but he asked me out on a date about six months after I started. LTP: How did your involvement in Ki’s come to be?

Barry: My mom and I had talked about opening our own business, she would run it, I would build it. She located a place in Cardiff on Birmingham Street. It started with just my mom selling vitamins, produce and fresh-squeezed juices eventually adding sandwiches and soups. It became evident very early on that Ki’s cooking was more popular than vitamins and produce so it became more of a restaurant. By 1985, the business was becoming successful

enough that I was able to quit the bar business to work full-time there. After several years of relative success, we decided we needed a bigger location. When our current location became available in 1994, we moved! Lorraine: A fun fact is that the very day that we moved and opened at this location, I went into labor with our third child, so it was kind of a crazy weekend. Our daughter and this restaurant are the same age!

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” — Irish proverb

LTP: What have your roles been in running the restaurant and building it to what it is today? Did your kids help out? Barry: I’ve acted as the general manager, hiring and training, ordering, trying to keep the business on course so that we can offer a wide variety of food using better and healthier ingredients. But the main focus is to make sure that we are a customer-oriented business with the goal of building a local and regular clientele. We want to be the "Cheers" of Cardiff — where everybody knows your name. Lorraine: I started working for the company in 1987, managing a second restaurant that we had at the time downtown. I had a hiatus during the years we had our children, but I started back at the Cardiff location in 1994. Mainly I have been managing the restaurant, doing bookwork, developing menus, HR and some of the marketing. All three of our kids did work here but the only one of our children who stayed in the business is our daughter, who is a baker and lives in Vancouver. LTP: There seems to be something for everyone on the menu that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. For first-time visitors, what would you recommend? Barry: My favorite juice is the kicker, my favorite smoothie is the PB&J, my favorite sandwich is the Super Veggie Sandwich. At TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON B14

There is no right way to grieve and everyone has different ways of dealing with their own feelings.

Coping with the death of a loved one can bring enormous challenges for the whole family. Grieving may never completely end, but working through the difficult feelings can become easier with time. Through support, open conversations, and finding ways to keep the person’s memory alive, families can begin healing together. The grieving process is very personal and each individual goes through the process differently. Take all the time you need but don’t hesitate to reach out for support from family, friends, faith leaders, or support groups. Our website lists links to grief support for both children and adults at www.allenbrothersmortuary.com/moreresources.

‘Unshackled’ at Vittorio’s Prisoner wine dinner taste of wine frank mangio & rico cassoni

O

ne of the challenges with writing a column is finding a catchy title. At least for me, once the title is in order, the rest just seems to flow. During last month's Prisoner wine dinner at Vittorio’s Italian Ristorante last month, I had the title of the column in my head when I heard the name of the first wine being poured. Vittorio's owner, Victor Magalhaes, along with narrators Amanda Salmon, field sales manager for Constellation Brands, and David Sheline, a certified sommelier, launched the evening with “Unshackled” sauvignon blanc. “I got it,” I told Taste of Wine co-producer Frank Mangio. “I need to use ‘Unshackled’ in the title when I write the column.” “Unshackled came from The Prisoner’s original winemaker David Phinney’s belief that Napa Valley could produce luxury red blends vs. the region’s single varietal go-to cabernet sauvignon,” Salmon

THE PRISONER Wine Company’s “Unshackled” wines (with labels featuring a distinct Cryptotext type) are “made for those who are looking to break free from convention, stereotypes, and perception.” The Coast News Graphic/Photo by Prisoner Wine Co.

said. Phinney created Prisoner’s original (and unlikely) blend with primarily zinfandel along with cabernet sauvignon, petite sirah, syrah, and charbono. Phinney attributes the Goya painting his mom had in his bedroom for his humor and creativity that extends to his winemaking prowess. Phinney liked the Goya so much that Prisoner wine

labels are etched with Goya artwork (after lots of negotiation, of course). Luckily for The Prisoner Wine Company, Phinney was able to share his blending secrets and skills with Jen Beloz, the second winemaker, who passed on the trade secrets to Chrissy Whitman, director of winemaking at Prisoner. Another interesting fact about Prisoner wines is that the brand does not own a single vineyard. Instead, fruit is sourced from more than 100 California small producers that grow unique varietals. The Unshackled line gives recognition to and is “made for those who are looking to break free from

convention, stereotypes, and perception.” The Unshackled White (2019) is predominantly sauvignon blanc (93%) with splashes of viognier, chenin blanc, and roussanne providing acidity and a textured mouthfeel. This paired well with the first course of crab and shrimp chowder. The second and third courses included Prisoner chardonnay (2019) served alongside portobello mushroom ravioli for the second and 2019 pinot noir with crispy duck and sour cherry compote the third course. The chardonnay fruit is sourced from Carneros, which has cooler temps and more wind making it more accommodating for the

thin-skinned chardonnay grape. It is blended with splashes of roussanne and gewürztraminer giving the chardonnay blend extra minerality for food-friendliness and a good pairing with the ravioli’s walnut cream sauce. The pinot noir was blended with syrah giving the (also) thin-skinned red (versus white) Sonoma Coast fruit meatiness and boldness. The typical cherry pinot noir palate had hints of spice, making it a complementary partner for the duck’s sour cherry compote. The main course featured grilled New Zealand lamb chop on a bed of po-

lenta with grilled French beans and dijon rosemary au jus. This was paired with a new 2019 cabernet sauvignon-blend dominated by cab sauvignon vs. zinfandel as in the case for the original Prisoner. The blend was mixed with cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, malbec, petite sirah and charbono. The cab’s black cherry and red plum palate with hints of vanilla was a perfect match for the grilled lamb and its au jus. See The Prisoner info at theprisonerwinecompany.com. Throughout dinner, Salmon and Sheline spoiled guests with The Prisoner wine raffles. And The Crosby Baker, Kary Favish, further indulged guests with red velvet cupcakes filled with chocolate ganache and topped with piped crème frosting. Great dinner Magalhaes, Chef, Salmon, Sheline, and Favish! Find more info on the Crosby Baker at thecrosbybaker. com.

In the moment with Kyle Harrop of Horus Aged Ales cheers! north county

o a Google Maps search for Horus Aged Ales, and it will be there on the map, tucked away in the back of a mixed-used building in Oceanside. If you drive over there, as I have, you’ll notice there are no picnic tables outside, no hours posted and no garage door open with a welcoming bartender waving from behind the bar. Horus Aged Ales has neither a tasting room, retail store nor does it have an online shop. Yet, search for the top-rated breweries in the country on the Untappd app (a popular craft beer tracking app), and there is Horus Aged Ales — the best-rated San Diego-area brewery. Go on Facebook and you’ll find a Horus Aged Ales Fans page with more than 1,500 members. Owner and founder Kyle Harrop has a full-time job in the aerospace industry. He has a family. He is the sole employee of his brewery. He isn’t the easiest guy to get ahold of, but recently, he took a few moments to answer some questions over e-mail. Cheers!: First, are you an accountant first or brewer first? Do they require complementary skills? Kyle: Brewer first now...there is some crossover with doing inventory, ordering and financials, but not many other skills that complement the other career. Cheers!: You don't have a brewery or tasting room that is open to the public. Was that ever something you entertained when brainstorming the opening? And follow up, as we come to the end of the 2nd full year of Covid, how if at all, has your brewing ef-

forts been impacted, or not impacted by the pandemic? Kyle: I could not have had a tasting room because I was still working 40-60 hours per week and I am still the only Horus employee. Covid has continued to evolve and change my business. The consistent change has been packaging everything in bottles and not kegging anything. Some ingredients have been hard to get, but I would say the most difficult thing to obtain consistently is glass bottles and when I do, they have gone up [in price] substantially.

Cheers!: Horus Aged Ales is a 100% barrel-aged brewery. What is it about barrel-aging beer that appeals to you? Your beer is aged in oak barrels. Why oak, and how do you go about selecting the right barrel for the beer you're aging? Is there a skill to that process (i.e. previous use of the barrel or other)? Kyle: I actually make a lot of non-barrel-aged beer too. I treat oak barrels like adjuncts. They add complexity and flavor to a base beer. I use Bourbon barrels the most but am always experimenting. I prefer fresh-

Kyle: Year five of my club, The Convocation, begins in June and this will be hands down the most insane year yet with all the crazy barrel-aged releases I have lined up using a variety of the rarest barrels I have ever used. Cheers!: What is something unexpected you’ve learned about brewing beer since beginning the Horus project? Kyle: Cleaning and sanitizing is about 90% of time spent with homebrewing and [with] professional brewing is at about 98%. Cheers!: What is the best way for North County beer drinkers to get their hands on Horus beer, and how can those of us that love barrel-aged beers stay apprised of your new releases? Kyle: Try to get into the bottle membership club this May and watch my Instagram for any public releases. Cheers!: Anything else you want readers to know about Horus Aged Ales right now? Kyle: My new “Run The Jewels” collaboration that will come out in the

next few months is the first Chartreuse* barrel-aged beer in existence that I am aware of. It is a Belgian-Style Sour Ale that aged in barrels for over two years and was finished on lime zest. It will release for Coachella in April! Be sure to follow @ horusagedales on Instagram for beer releases and club announcements. Be sure to set notifications to on because his ticketed beer sales often sell out in minutes. Membership in his beer club, The Convocation, is limited and previously has been awarded by lottery. For more of Spring Whitaker’s art, visit her websited at www.springwhitaker.com/ *Chartreuse is a French herbal liqueur that has been brewed by Carthusian Monks in the Grenoble, France region — with periodic interruptions when the order of monks was expelled from France — since the early 1700s. The liqueur is brewed with herbs, plants, and flowers and was originally thought to be an elixir of long life.

Nonprofit O’side food group has new name By City News Service

OCEANSIDE — A food services nonprofit has changed its name O'side Kitchen Collaborative to One Kitchen Collaborative, according to a news release Monday. One Kitchen officials said the rebrand also includes a new logo and website to better reflect community growth. The organization focuses on reducing food waste, and addressing food insecurity through catering, food production and education programs. “During the (COVID-19) pandemic, we jumped to the call of action to help those in need,” said Vallie Gilley, One Kitchen Collaborative executive director. “With the help of our community partners, donors, volunteers and team we served 680,928 meals to

verted 400,236 pounds of edible food, provided over 680,000 meals, along with 21,280 produce and supplemental grocery boxes to people. OKC also practices waste reduction and composting methods. “So as our community grows bigger and stronger daily, we wanted to celebrate that with a name change that feels in alignment,” Gilley said. “Although we will have a new brand, our core values and focus will not change. We’re pivoting to something greater and are hopeful our new brand will help us reach more communities.” According to OKC, expansion plans include a second kitchen location, new programming, more educational partnerships, products and more event catering as the COVID pandemic eases.

L

ast month, 43,090 new businesses formed in California. I registered my own LLC early last year to protect me legally and financially. The paperwork was good for two years. So imagine my surprise when I received an official looking renewal form in the mail today. Form 501-LLC was my California Limited Liability company biennial order form, and it came a year early. Color me puzzled. Reading further, I saw a $243 processing fee, with deadlines, statutes, and penalties mentioned. Only the paperwork wasn’t from the California Secretary of State, but the Corporate Processing Service. And for this $243, CPS would send my information to the appropriate state office with a $20 payment. Obviously, I’m better off doing that myself without the middleman. CPS’ gambit was simple; acquire a list of LLCs from the state, send an official looking document that scares the hell out of the recipient, and hope they’re not really paying attention. Given that corporate registration information is public, it’s fair game for anyone else wanting to try the same stunt. And since CPS clearly states they’re an independent third party, they’re probably not breaking any laws. Sadly, people don’t read much anymore, making it a perfect environment for such parasites. Information overload, time shortages, and minimal attention spans conspire to cheat entrepreneurs out of

ask

mr. marketing rob weinberg their hard-earned money. CPS also has a minimal investment; one sheet of paper, a #10 envelope, a carrier envelope, mailing list, and pre-sorted first class postage. It’s an easy business to manage, with a low barrier to entry. Neither Corporate Processing Service nor parent company Corptech Management has a website, email, or phone number. They don’t accept credit cards, and never have to deal with customer complaints. They also ignore the charges against them at the Better Business Bureau. Pretty slick, huh? There are undoubtedly many business owners who receive this mailer, panic, and send in their money. They’d rather be safe than sorry, and don’t know enough or look carefully enough to recognize when they’re being hustled. Yet, if they just took an extra minute to ask why they’re paying that invoice, they’d be able to keep more of their hard-earned money where it belongs. So consider this fair warning: before you pay any invoice or government fee, make sure it’s legitimate. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

night, my favorite dinner is the Cioppino or the Salmon in Parchment. Lorraine: I would say my favorites on both the breakfast and the lunch menus are the Chow bowls. There’s a Healthy Breakfast Bowl with quinoa, spinach, sauteed mushrooms and eggs and at lunch, there’s a Moroccan-inspired Marrakesh Bowl or the Vietnamese-inspired NomNam bowl where you can choose which protein you’d like to

add. For dinner, I love our Cioppino, and the Brined Pork Chop is also amazingly moist and flavorful, and you can’t go wrong with our fresh fish specials, which change weekly. Our chef does a great job coming up with interesting and delicious dishes. LTP: You also have a full bar with some fun cocktails upstairs and given your location, it seems like a perfect spot to pop in for a cocktail. Lorraine: We do have a full bar and we change up

Lothrop - Plants • “Reservoir Dogs Sleeping” by CJ Edingfield-Murphy - Animals • “Cactus” by Ashley Hahlen Youth • “Rocks” by Will Getz - People’s Choice The winning photographs are on display through April 30 at the Interpretive Center Honoring Susan J. Varty, located in EFRR’s staging area. The interpretive center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., subject to docent availability. The contest offers photographers an opportunity to share im-

the drink menu quite a bit. And what could be more perfect than sipping on a cocktail while watching the surfers and the sunset across the street? LTP: Your juice and smoothie bar is also very popular. Lorraine: Juices and smoothies are how this started with Ki. I may be biased but I think we make the best smoothies around because we don’t add ice or syrups — what you get is straight juice and fruit. LTP: Music has always played a big part in the Ki’s

experience, who are some of your favorite local performers, past and present? Barry: My parents were big into music. My mom was a singer all her life, and a fantastic one at that, and she loved to perform! My dad was a huge fan and taught himself to play the piano later in life. In fact, they used to perform here weekly on Monday nights. We started having bands come in on Friday nights in the late 1990s. Lorraine: Our favorites have to be the Peters: Peter Sprague and Peter Pup-

ping. Also Fred Benedetti and daughters and Robin Henkel. Our performers are all listed on our website. And there you have it, family-owned and operated, a menu with something for everyone, and a spectacular location in Cardiff on Coast Highway 101 across the street from the ocean. If you’ve not been, please check them out and if it’s been a while, Ki’s is worth revisiting for sure. Find them at 2590 S. Coast Highway 101 or www. kisrestaurant.com.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The adventurous Aries won’t be disappointed with taking on a new challenge, despite some initial misgivings. Look for this move to open other opportunities down the line. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Let that beautiful Bovine smile not only put you at ease, but also show that you’re ready, willing and more than able to confound the naysayers around you. A new admirer has important news. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful how you handle a relationship that you’re hoping to save. You already have the facts on your side. Avoid weakening your position by embellishing it with unnecessary dramatics. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking definitive stands isn’t easy for the often-wavering Moon Child. But you not only need to stay with your decision, but also to reassure others it was the right thing to do. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As a proud Lion, you’re right to be upset about those who might be lying about you to others. But the best revenge is proving them wrong by succeeding at what you set out to do. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22). Caution is still advised before making a financial commitment to a “promising” project. Look for the

facts behind the fluff. Devote the weekend to loved ones. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A Taurus offers comfort and advice as you deal with an upsetting event. Use this as a learning experience that will help you avoid similar problems in the future. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A romantic situation creates some chaos for single Scorpions. But it’s well worth the effort to work things out. A trusted friend can offer some helpful advice. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Expect to make new friends as your social circle expands. Also, remember to tell that family member how proud you are of his or her achievements. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19). New ventures continue to be favored. And with your self-confidence rising all the time, you’ll want to see how well you can do with a new challenge. So, go to it. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) This is a good time for the usually serious-minded Aquarian to let loose and enjoy some fun times. Expect to get good news about a workplace issue. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changed plans might upset some people, but your needs should be respected. Offer explanations when necessary. But don’t let yourself be talked into changing your decisions. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for bringing people together. You would make a fine judge or counselor. © 2022 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
