SDUHSD keeping schools open through virus surge  School district positive test rates similar to county By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union School District returned to campus this week following winter break with at least 245 students in isolation or quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, along with 31 absences of faculty that require substitute teachers. The district currently has an enrollment of

CARLSBAD — A battle over sand is brewing between the neighboring cities of Oceanside and Carlsbad. During its Jan. 11 meeting, the Carlsbad City Council approved a RANCHO resolution opposing the City ofSFNEWS Oceanside’s plan to construct four groins and a sand bypass system designed to minimize sand loss at the city's beaches. Hundreds of residents, mostly from Oceanside, either wrote letters or called into the meeting urging Carlsbad officials to work collaboratively with their neighbors to the north, despite the Oceanside City Council approving a pilot program without first contacting any other coastal city. Oceanside has been struggling with beach erosion for nearly 80 years following the construction of Camp Pendleton’s harbor in 1942, and sand nourishment projects alone have not been helping to keep sand on the beach. Kyle Lancaster, Carlsbad’s director of parks and recreation, said Oceanside experiences a loss of sand between 100,000 to 200,000-cubic yards each year. But Oceanside’s plan must first be approved by the California Coastal Commission. Oceanside is calling for

around 13,500 students. The school district's testing sites have reported positive test results at a similar rate as San Diego County has seen as a whole during the recent surge of COVID-19. At a San Dieguito testing site for students and faculty on January 10 at Torrey Pines High School, Phamatech partnered with the district to administer PCR tests for COVID-19, administering 573 tests with a positivity rate of 28%.

North County police under fire for sharing license plate data  Media probe alleges improper data sharing By Steve Puterski

REGION — Three North County police departments have been allegedly violating state law by sharing information from license plate readers, according to an investigation by inewsource. The publication reported on Jan. 6 the police de-

partments in the cities of Carlsbad, Escondido and Oceanside have been sharing data with law enforcement agencies nationwide, although state law only allows for agencies in California to share with each other. Police in La Mesa and Coronado also were found to allegedly have violated state laws, according to inewsource. In 2017, Carlsbad approved license plate readers by a 4-1 vote, with former Councilwoman Cori Schumacher voting no, but

received pushback from the public on potential impacts and privacy concerns. Since then, the city has spent more than $1.3 million on license plate readers. Also, the council approved raises with the Carlsbad Police Management Association, which consists of lieutenants and captains within the municipal police department. The memorandum of understanding calls for a 4% raise this year, 3.3% in 2023 and 3.2% in 2024. The city is also negotiating a new

contract with the Carlsbad Police Officers’ Association. After being questioned by inewsource, the Carlsbad Police Department changed its policy, as did Coronado, to share only with other instate agencies. Oceanside police told inewsource it stopped sharing, but did not provide proof, according to reporter Cody Dulaney. In Escondido and La Mesa, the police department refused to answer questions from inewsource about sharing data and claimed they did nothing

wrong. All signed an agreement with Vigilant Solutions to house data, and the agreement included a memorandum of understanding, which CPD said prevents it from sharing data with federal agencies according to a 2018 story in the Coast News. Also, the auditor found in 2020 police agencies are keeping data longer than necessary and sharing it with others who don’t need or have a right to access it, inewsource found.

SDG&E begins Via De La Valle undergrounding

Former supervisor Eckert dies VISTA — Longtime president of the Vista Historical Society and former San Diego County Supervisor Paul Eckert passed away at his home on Jan. 4 in Vista. He was 88. Dubbed a “community icon” by former Vista City Councilman Frank Lopez, Eckert was elected to the Board of Supervisors in 1978 and served for eight years. F o l lowing his local politECKERT ical career, Eckert was president of the Vista Historical Society from 2009 to 2014 and remained a member up until his death, serving for many years alongside his late wife, Diane. “You can’t find people who did what he did for this town,” Lopez said. “Vista has lost a person who cared so deeply for this community.” Eckert was “instrumental” in turning the historical society into the reputable organization that it is today, negotiating with the city to secure the museum its current building today in Rancho Minerva, according to Jack Larimer, a member of the society. Eckert, who ran a van and storage company in Vista for decades in addition to being a real estate developer, also assisted the organization's museum by allowing the society to store a considerable amount of its artifacts on his properties, Larimer added. “He was very generous…he spent a lot of time and effort as well as money at this museum, and he was one of the main people that got us in here and got this organization going,” Larimer said. Eckert was devoted to the historical society, applying his time and resources to ensuring that the museum’s quality and strength as an organization was kept up, according to Lopez. “He was there when

Cyclovia Encinitas draws a crowd  Visitors from across the county try car-free event By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — After the city was unable to host a Cyclovia event last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Encinitas locals and visitors were excited to participate in the car-free event in downtown Encinitas over the weekend. Cyclovia Encinitas temporarily closed off motor-vehicle access along a portion of Coast Highway 101 to allow cyclists, pedestrians and other non-motorized travelers to enjoy the roadway without cars. Pierce Lee, an Oceanside resident who only heard of the event from a friend the night before, was happy to dust off his bike to take advantage of the opportunity. “Oh this is awesome, being able to just come out on a beautiful day here and ride right in the middle of Coast Highway with my son here is a

dream,” Lee said. “I wish they could do things like this more often. It would probably get me to use this bike more.” According to the city, Lee was one of at least 4,000 people who visited Cyclovia Encinitas over the course of the afternoon. “A lot of people from Encinitas and all over the county enjoyed getting out on 101,” said Nick Buck, the city’s special events and projects supervisor. “(It) was great to see many people from Encinitas and all over

San Diego County smiling and enjoying Cyclovia on Coast Highway by bike, on foot, skates and scooters. The city said the event ran smoothly, despite having to tow a car from the roadway prior to the event, and saw no major incidents involving bikes or pedestrians. Brandon Kimball, a Leucadia resident, didn’t have a bike to bring out to the event but still loved the opportunity to walk down Coast Highway and see the different kinds of bicycles and other modes

of transportation on display. “There was a group of guys going down earlier with a boom box just cruising and everyone was loving it,” Kimball said. “If they’re doing it again next year I’ll have to remember to get a bike before.” The outdoor event took place amid a recent surge in the omicron variant of COVID-19 and masks were encouraged for those in attendance. The city also offered a vaccination station operated by AMR Ambulance. The city said the station received almost 60 walkups for a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. “Which is good for them. They average 30 to 40 at similar clinics,” Buck said. The city hopes to continue the event, a partnership with the city’s Environmental Commission the Traffic and Public Safety Commission, with support from the local bike coalitions and Encinitas 101 Main Street Association, as an annual affair after skipping last year due to the pandemic.

DEL MAR — San Diego Gas & Electric, or SDG&E, is set to begin its Del Mar Electric Transmission Line Reconfiguration Project as early as this week. The project will include the undergrounding of a new transmission line approximately one-mile along Via De La Valle Road. The total project covers about seven miles and includes the cities of San Diego, Del Mar and a small portion of Solana Beach. The first phase of three will begin this week, according to SDG&E. The undergrounding of approximately 1.1 miles of 12-kilovolt line will allow for the removal of five overhead poles in Del Mar, however the current overhead distribution lines on the shoulder of Via De La Valle will not be removed. In total, about 34 poles will be removed. SDG&E will also be installing two new poles near the Del Mar Horsepark. Additionally, an existing overhead power line will be undergrounded along San Dieguito and Racetrack View Drive. Once completed, the project will help increase system capacity and reliability while also improving safety and aesthetics in surrounding communities. “One of the benefits to the Del Mar community is the removal poles that are currently in the lagoon, and that is something that I think is going to have a really beautiful impact on a resource that’s very precious to the Del Mar community,” said Kristen Crane, Del Mar’s assistant city manager. The 62 poles that are not removed in the impacted areas will be reconfigured, a process that involves removing the top level of a transmission pole and reducing it to just one level of wires. Construction on Via De La Valle will mainly take place at night from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., which is expected to lessen the project’s impact on traffic in the area. Claudia Valenzuela, SDG&E’s regional public affairs manager, said they TURN TO UNDERGROUND ON A13

SCAG, SANDAG & local control

N

By Julie Thunder

ews broke last week of an important decision taken by the Southern California Association of Governments, or SCAG. SCAG is analogous to the San Diego Association of Governments, or SANDAG – both are planning and transportation authorities for their regions. SANDAG is governed by a board composed of representatives from each of San Diego County’s 19 cities, but SCAG is much bigger, encompassing 191 cities in six counties — Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, and Imperial. In the governance of SoCal, SCAG is the Big Kahuna. SCAG’s governing board voted by an overwhelming majority to support the “Community Planning Voter Initiative,” otherwise known as “Our Neighborhood Voices.” This initiative, currently underway as a statewide petition drive, is an attempt to restore local control to each city in California via a constitutional amendment. Some background: New state laws recently took effect that brings huge changes to our neighborhoods by eliminating single-family zoning in every city. Any home on any block can now be demolished and then replaced with a multiunit multi-story structure and you can’t do a thing about it. You’ll lose privacy, neighborhood trees, and curbside parking. Your elected leaders can’t stop these densification projects. City planners have been muted. Your HOA is powerless. No development fees are to be collected for schools, roads, sewer, police and fire. Adding insult to injury, there are no affordability requirements – the additional units won’t even count toward the state’s low-income housing mandates. Make no mistake about

it. Encinitas faces a life-ordeath struggle with Sacramento. If the pols have their way, our coastal town will be filled with expensive multi-family dwellings jammed into every possible available space, leading to even more congested roads and straining our infrastructure. The Our Neighborhood Voices Initiative is a silver bullet in what is mortal combat. It’s a stake through the dark heart of Sacramento’s overreach. If the California Constitution is amended as proposed, we’ll have the means to resist this push to convert Encinitas into a “mini-me” of Santa Monica. Without this protection, it’s only a matter of time before the Encinitas of today is buried under millions of tons of concrete. This is a non-partisan initiative, led by elected officials across the spectrum – Democrat, Independent and Republican. It relies on a fundamental pillar of the democratic process: the government closest to the people serves the people best. In Encinitas, that means the voters and our elected City Council. The proposed amendment will give us the power we need to defend our neighborhoods. So kudos to the elected officials of SCAG. They

know what their cities are facing and they are standing up for local control. If this reform becomes law, Encinitas will have the power to shape its own future. Our Proposition A, which requires voter approval for zoning changes, has been subverted in the past by our own local leaders. Unless Our Neighborhood Voices Initiative succeeds, that will happen again and again, reducing Prop A to a quaint artifact of local history. I call upon our City Council and the SANDAG Board of Directors to stand with SCAG in support of Our Neighborhood Voices. They should clearly express their support by resolution and direct our SANDAG representative, Mayor Catherine Blakespear, to do the same in that body. Perhaps Blakespear can take time out from her state senate campaign and focus for a moment instead on the interests of the residents of Encinitas. It’s time for her to choose: serve her constituents or continue to serve the interests of those who will profit by paving Encinitas into oblivion. Learn more about the initiative at Our Neighborhood Voices. Julie Thunder is a resident of Cardiff-by-the-Sea

valuable piece of Encinitas history is on the verge of being destroyed by the latest potential density bonus project on Melba Road in Encinitas. This beautiful piece of open space ties old Encinitas with new Encinitas. The property sits on melba road and is home to a beautiful historical home built in 1938 or earlier. Melba Road is lined with a grove of mature Torrey Pines. The property serves as a local walkway for our neighborhood and children. The community has used Melba road for many years, always admiring the beautiful treeline which is the Encinitas Redwoods. The historical property borders the last rural horse farm in Encinitas, Boys and Girls Garden & Club, Oak Crest Park, & Middle School, the Encinitas Community & Senior Center. Due to the proximity of these places to the project, a development would negatively impact so many people’s lives. Along with the longtime tax-paying senior population. The property was home to the Greenhouses and is also home to rare species such as the Cooper’s Hawk, and native plants also loaded with Monarch butterflies during summer and throughout the year. This sacred land was once owned by the original property owner of the Botanical Garden Anton van Amersfoort in 1938. We uncovered a deed with his name on the property dated 1938. This gentleman was a key player in Encinitas history. This is the information put forward on the San Diego Botanic Garden’s website. Prior to Ruth and Charles Larabee, approximately one-half the property that is now known as San Diego Botanic Garden was owned by Anton van Amersfoort, an avocado grower who immigrated to the United States from Holland. Van Amersfoort had come into possession of the ranch and the house and he later sold it to Ruth Larabee in 1943. During his years in Encinitas, van Amersfoort became a major landowner with a claim to at least 16 different properties in the general area, one of which was as large as 80 acres. He became a well-recognized avocado rancher, listed in a 1928 Avocado Growers’ report. Mr. van Amersfoort could bring this orchard through four years of dry

farming and now having it in such excellent condition is a tribute to his understanding of tree growing. He was a strong advocate of the excellence of the Fuerte variety.” In addition, van Amersfoort was a prime mover in the local water district when irrigation finally did come on the scene in 1923. He was a director of the Encinitas Water District, which later became the San Dieguito Irrigation District, and held this position for a number of years, even surviving a recall petition. There is a good chance that Anton may have even lived and built the beautiful historical home that is on the Melba property. We also think that perhaps some of the trees on the border of the property were possibly planted by Anton. This property would be ideal as an annex of the botanical gardens or outdoor stem lab for the local schools. It also has the potential for a similar setup to San Dieguito Park in Solana Beach. Numerous studies have shown that the conversion of open space to residential use negatively affects local government budgets. Residential land use requires municipalities to spend more money on services such as infrastructure, fire and police protection, and schools than the property taxes generated by such use. If allowed to develop on this property the drainage and runoff would head right for Ocean Knoll Canyon, which would be counterintuitive because this location just received a large grant to restore the property and clean up the canyon. Please call or write to your council member and encourage them to dedicate the property as open space for the Encinitas community. We have had so many housing projects in the last few years with no consideration for open space for the community. This small plot of land that previously was a greenhouse still reaps the benefits of the well-maintained property. The property should be made contiguous with Oak Crest Park which is home to California Gnatcatcher and Baccharis vanessae, Encinitas Baccharis, Del Mar manizita. Soft infrastructure funding should be used for the acquisition of the land aligning with the Encinitas Climate Action Plan. JerylAnne Kessler Encinitas

NCTD begins pilot program with Uber, Lyft

New STR regulations take effect in Encinitas

By Steve Puterski

ENCINITAS — New regulations for the city’s short-term rental market went into effect this month and an industry expert said rental operators should get used to the changes. Similar to most cities, short-term rentals in Encinitas have become more popular with people looking for new avenues to supplement their income, and online platforms such as Airbnb and Vrbo have made it easier for homeowners to list their spaces for rent. The city of Encinitas currently has 426 permitted short-term rentals. In response to the significant increase in shortterm rentals, or vacation rentals, the Encinitas City Council adopted a new set of regulations in November, including new permitting fees and a minimum night stay for properties that are not occupied by the rental's owner. “The nuances really come in terms of how jurisdictions are defining shortterm limits or they are putting limits on them,” said Pam Knudsen, an executive at Avalara, a tax compliance software-as-a-service company that works with short-term rental operators. Knudsen told The Coast News cities take many different paths to their short-term rental regulations based on how they define them and which ones they allow. In Encinitas, the city only allows short-term rentals to operate in single-family homes and duplexes in residential zones (vacation rentals are currently not allowed in condominiums or apartments). The City Council also considered implementing other guidelines surrounding the use of cameras and self check-in for guests and could return to those regulations in the future. One of the biggest changes in the new year for short-term rental operators is a significant increase in the annual permit fee. The $150 fee for operators had remained unchanged since 2006. Under the new regulations, rental operators must pay $425. According to the city, the price hike will recover just 80% of its costs. Knudsen said the fee seems standard to her based on the data she has been able to see. “I’ve seen some that are higher and I’ve seen some that are lower, it’s pretty much in the middle,” Knudsen said. “I

CARLSBAD — The North County Transit District launched a new first- and last-mile pilot program this week with several ridesharing companies to offer commuters credit toward trips to and from Coaster stations. NCTD is partnering with Uber, Lyft and TripShot to provide discounted rides for commuters using the Carlsbad Poinsettia Station and Sorrento Valley Coaster stations NCTD officials confirmed. The program appears similar to the Carlsbad Connector, which was started in 2019 until the program was suspended in July 2020 due to the pandemic. NCTD is also planning another pilot program in San Marcos, according to a 2020 press release from Carlsbad, although the details will be released at a later date. The pilot, which is offered through the District’s NCTD+ mobility-as-a-service program, gives riders a $7.50 credit toward trips to or from the Sorrento Valley or Poinsettia stations within specific geographic zones. “NCTD+ provides greater flexibility for commuters to connect to locations near Sorrento Valley and Carlsbad Poinsettia Coaster Stations,” NCTD Executive Director Matthew Tucker said in a press release. “Those starting early, or staying late, now have reliable transportation to or from two of our busiest Coaster stations.” The pilot runs from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and passengers with a mobility device can book trips for curb-to-curb service using the TripShot app. Others can use Uber and Lyft using a designated coupon or QR code. Users using the codes will pay the first $2.50 and receive a $7.50 credit from NCTD after the trip to cover the rest of the cost up to $10. Customers, though, will be responsible to cover additional costs over $10. To qualify, each trip scheduled must being or end at the Poinsettia or Sorrento Valley stations. The range of the Carlsbad program spans 10.8 square miles and runs north from Cannon Road to El Camino Real and south to Poinsettia Lane. The boundary stops at Melrose Drive north to Sycamore Avenue in Vista and south to Poinsettia Lane. As for the Carlsbad Connector, the City of Carlsbad reported more than 400 riders per week used the service at its peak in February 2020. It had a 96% on-time rate with more than 10,000 rides from when it launched in August 2019.

It is with a heavy heart that after 40+ years, the Peterson Family has sold the donut shop,” the post read. “We thank you for all the years we were able to serve you and that you have made our little Mom and Pop shop one of your favorite landmarks in San Diego County. Maureen Peterson, who currently helps run the shop alongside her brother Ralph Peterson Jr., said that the family ultimately decided it was time to pass the business on and retire, in part due to the death of the sibling’s parents and the former owners of the donut shop, Ralph and Vera Peterson. “My mom and dad started this shop in 1981 and they’re both deceased now..my brother and I have been running the shop and managing this business but it’s just time to retire, it’s time to say goodbye, even though that’s really hard,” Maureen said. Ralph Peterson Sr. passed away in 2011, Vera Peterson passed away in 2016. The donut shop’s new

owner is 50-year-old San Diego resident Anthony Deeb, who said that he’s excited for the opportunity and feels blessed to be able to carry on the Peterson family’s legacy in continuing the business. “When you look at the history of Peterson’s donuts, it’s pretty awesome, the family started this 40 years ago in the Escondido area…with as much tradition as this place has, I’m blessed and fortunate to have this opportunity, and I want to carry on the Peterson name in whatever way I can,” Deeb said. Deeb has an extensive background in the medical device sales industry, and currently works at a company that develops medication and treatments for patients with psychiatric disorders. Maureen said that she’s confident in the future of the shop in Deeb’s hands. “We’re working with him and training him to take over right now…he’s jumping in and really trying to learn everything from the managing to the baking and the frosting— he really wants to keep everything the same and maintain the same quali-

ty, that’s how we run our business and that’s what I expect he’ll do to keep the business continuing,” she said. Customers may notice a new owner around but won’t be seeing any substantial changes to the store or the service, Deeb said, emphasizing that he wants to keep the same feel and flavor that has earned the shop its stellar reputation in Escondido. “People shouldn’t expect any changes to the menu, the building, or anything really. For me this is about carrying on the Peterson name and tradition and not changing things— if anything, I want to try and make our service even better,” he said. The new storeowner said that beyond just running a business, he hopes to maintain and expand Peterson’s role as contributing and assisting in local community causes. Under the Peterson family, the donut shop has been active in supporting various charitable organizations and ventures in Escondido, holding fundraisers for the Escondido American Little League, Meals on Wheels, the Escondido veterans center, and numerous local churches, among other groups. “I’m a passionate person myself and I truly want to make this place better, like let’s support the community even more, let’s do more outreach, let’s connect with the medical community where I have connections, maybe we can go to the children’s hospital and do some things to benefit everyone,” Deeb said. Both Maureen and Deeb spoke of Peterson’s exceptional legacy within Escondido, emphasizing the role that the shop’s espeTURN TO PETERSON’S ON A14

higher rate and they said they are taking that rate and specifically targeting those funds to input to build affordable housing for some of the residents,” Knudsen said. The city’s costs include enforcement and paying city staff to review and approve each permit application. “And that is really for every resident to look at and say, ‘Am I OK with how the city is spending my money?’” Knudsen said. For jurisdictions nationwide including Encinitas, short-term rental market enforcement and compliance will be critical to responding to the growing industry. The city enacted new ordinances due to what it described as a great number of complaints from residents “including, but not limited to, excessive noise, disorderly conduct, overcrowding, parking and traffic issues, trash/debris and other similar quality of life issues,” according to the ordinance language. Making sure ever short-term rental in the city is permitted and following new regulations will be a challenge. Since the city said it is only recovering 80% of its costs, Knudsen suggested there may be other ways to help ensure vacation rental operators remain in compliance. “So we’ve seen the jurisdictions really try to crack down on compliance and they’re actually leaning on some of the booking companies like Airbnb and Vrbo to help with that,” Knudsen said. “The jurisdictions are actually looking to partner with some of the players in the industry to help them out with compliance.”

Vista’s Hyde takes his game to new level By Stephen Wyer

VISTA — Vista High School junior Cyprian Hyde is having a standout season on the court, drawing interest from NCAA schools and scouts, as well as receiving praise from his coaches and teammates. Hyde, 17, a 6-foot-10 center from Oceanside now in his third year playing for the Panthers, currently leads the Coastal North County League in both rebounds and blocks and is second in scoring. On the season, Hyde is averaging a double-double with 16.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game. Panthers head coach Anthony Bolton said that Hyde has been an exceptionally physical presence on the court, citing both the junior’s talent and athleticism as well as his singular work ethic as contributing to his breakout year. “He’s a big man that not everyone has on their roster, people have to gameplan and look out for him,” Bolton said. “You see him getting triple-doubles out there and people really see the value he brings to our team, he’s just such a huge part of what we’re doing.” On and off the court, no one on the Panthers has worked harder than Hyde, the coach said, emphasizing the tremendous growth and development that he’s seen in the junior compared to previous seasons. Bolton said that as his talent and raw abilities have taken off, Hyde has led the locker room in pushing himself and others toward excellence. “He just continues to work and work, making progress and growth towards his development. … I always tell him that if he just focuses on the work he’s got to put in and if he’s inspired and motivated like that, the points and the rebounds will take care of themselves, and he’s very mature in that regard.” Working closely with coaches, communicating better with teammates, and stepping up as a leader on the squad have all been pivotal to his success in games, Hyde said. “I’ve improved a lot this year, dominating with the rebounds and points and I’ve gotten better on

defense, I’ve been talking more with the team, and just learning continually,” he said. “I feel like I’ve been stepping up to the challenge, just staying positive and building up teammates more than anything else.” Both Bolton and Hyde said that the past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic have been difficult for the Panthers squad, but the junior said that he’s been able to look past these challenges and push himself to be the best teammate and player he can possibly be. When athletic activities have been suspended due to pandemic concerns, Hyde says that he’s met up with coaches and teammates and

worked out outside of practice, working to stay in the best physical shape possible to be ready for this season. “During the shutdowns I’ve met up with Coach Bolton to lift weights, go running, and just block out the distractions. … You can’t focus on the negatives with these situations, you have to keep on pushing forward and control what you can control, and for me that’s staying positive and playing hard.” Hyde’s hard work has already paid off — he told The Coast News that he’s received interest from numerous NCAA scouts and has already garnered scholarship offers from Eastern Wash-

ington and the University of Portland, both NCAA Division I schools. The 17-yearold said that he hopes to develop further as a player in the NCAA after he graduates from Vista High and said that he has aspirations of playing professionally. San Diego basketball scout Aaron Burgin, who watched a recent matchup in which the Panthers bested Canyon Crest Academy, 58-47, said that Hyde’s domination on the court could lead to very favorable NCAA considerations for the junior. “If he continues to give these types of efforts, it won’t be a stretch to call him one of the top big men prospects in the state in his class,” Burgin said. It’s exactly because of Hyde’s standout talent and extraordinary potential that Bolton said he and the other Panthers coaches work to push Hyde even harder in games, practices and team workouts. “I challenge him constantly because I see a lot of potential in what he could be. … It takes coaches to push him beyond his comfortability, it’s our job to push, push and push until there’s no more — you don’t know how high that ceiling is until you push for it.” The season hasn’t panned out the way either Hyde or the coach had hoped for, as the Panthers are currently 4-10 in the 21-game season. Far from a disappointment, though, Bolton said that a season full of challenges — ranging from a particularly high concentration of younger players on the team to difficulties posed by the pandemic — has brought out the best in his young team, with the players showing remarkable resilience, poise and determination in the face of adversity. “As a coach, obviously you want to see the results on the scoreboard … but guys are getting better, they’re working hard, and they have that passion to continue to work hard. … These kids have shown resilience, just in terms of perseverance, they’ve shown the traits that we want these kids to have as young men, dealing with adversity and staying motivated under the circumstances.”

Fairgrounds signs Horsepark lessee By Tigist Layne

Tenant vacancies rise at North County mall By Stephen Wyer

ESCONDIDO — Store closures are increasing at Westfield North County in Escondido, with business owners citing the pandemic, departure of major retailers and mall ownership's poor management as contributing factors. “It’s terrible, it’s just been devastating to watch,” said Cynthia, a storeowner who requested The Coast News not share her full name. “It just breaks my heart, it’s a beautiful mall and it’s really well done but…the outlook right now is pretty bleak.” Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, regional economic experts say that the mall has suffered from a marked increase in tenant vacancies, along with a substantial reduction in foot traffic at the shopping center. From larger department store chains to smaller retailers and singular establishments such as Wyatt’s toy store, a sizeable number of the mall’s businesses are being forced to close or are on the brink of shutting down, according to Erik Bruvold, CEO of the San Diego North Economic Development Council. “What’s happening with the North County fair is that it’s clear to me that it’s not going back to the way it was,” Bruvold said, noting that the mall was already seeing these unfavorable patterns even before the onset of the coronavirus in 2020. “The mall really is in a challenged space right now…the pandemic accelerated these challenges by a number of years or even decades.” Westfield North County’s troubles stem not only from the economic impacts of the pandemic but also from a number of other factors, including the shopping center losing some of its big-name retailers that had drawn shoppers and benefited the mall’s other businesses, Bruvold said. “With the loss of places like Nordstrom’s and Sears, the smaller retailers suffer from not seeing the foot traffic spillover from these larger department stores,” Bruvold said. “With the way consumer behavior is, people come into the anchor department stores and then they see these other businesses

and want to shop there too, but now instead you have this unvirtuous cycle, with the big chains leaving, the smaller places suffering, and then, in turn, more businesses leaving.” Sears and Nordstrom both closed in mid-2020. Other businesses at Escondido’s Westfield that have closed recently or are preparing to shut their doors include Abercrombie and Fitch, Starbucks, Souplantation, Hallmark and Yankee Candle. “Nordstrom was a big loss, there’s no question about it…they really brought in some of the quality buyers,” said Cynthia, who has operated her store at the mall since 1992. “The thing is that these large anchor stores generate destination traffic, those shoppers are coming into the mall and those places gave them a reason to stay and shop.” The regional shopping center has also been hit hard by both labor and supply shortages that are creating difficulties for businesses nationwide, according to James Rowten, president of the Escondido Chamber of Commerce, who said that these challenges have been further exacerbated by the onset of the Omnicron variant of the coronavirus. “We’re seeing quite a few more vacancies in the mall…this latest hit from the pandemic has really impacted so many of our businesses — it’s tough to get staffing, supplies, and to just keep the doors open,” Rowten said. JC Penney Hair Salon, which operates on Westfield's first floor, has been overwhelmed by a combination of staffing issues, supply shortages and other problems related to the pandemic, according to store manager Amy Bailey. The salon has been operating with 33 fewer staff members than a typical holiday season and has recently been running critically low on key supplies, including hairstyling essentials such as coloring, and fabric materials for the store’s shoe department, Bailey said. “We didn’t even get the amount of hiring done for the holiday that we would normally be able to get pre-holiday…and TURN TO WESTFIELD ON A18

DEL MAR – After a year-long process, the 22nd District Agricultural Association has selected a new lessee to begin lease negotiations to take over the Del Mar Horsepark. The contract was approved by the board during its Jan. 11 meeting. Dale Harvey, CEO of West Palms Events, will be the winning bidder of the Horsepark once the process is finalized by the state board. The event company hosts an equine competition circuit with events around the country, including the Riders Cup and this year's 100th annual Flintridge Horse Show in Los Angeles County. The Horsepark, located on 65 acres about three miles east of the Del Mar Fairgrounds at the corner of El Camino Real and Via de la Valle in the San Dieguito River Valley, has been closed for about a year due to water quality concerns from the Regional Water Quality Control Board. The necessary improvements would cost about $3 or $4 million, although previous estimates were somewhere near $8 million. Add it iona l ly, COVID-related restrictions on public events, on top of declining horse racing and existing debt, have put the Fairgrounds in financial straits. In January 2021, the Fairgrounds sought public input to help chart the cash-strapped eques-

trian facility’s future, previously reported by The Coast News. Six months later, the 22nd DAA started a request for proposals, or RFP, process to find a lessee for the Horsepark who could cover the costs needed to reopen the facility. Harvey had submitted a proposal once before and was rejected because of a “technicality,” according to the board. After successfully submitting a second proposal, Harvey has plans to move forward with water remediation, implement renovations on the park, resume horse shows and add dog shows and other events.

“We are excited to work with the 22nd DAA to get the facility back on track,” Harvey said in a statement. “It’s an incredible location and we hope to attract all kinds of activities for the community. We are collaborating with Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center and plan to bring therapy riding activities to the Horsepark.” The advocacy group Friends of Del Mar Horsepark has been working for the past year to save the Horsepark and have it reopened, even garnering more than 17,000 signatures on an online petition. Carla Echols-Hayes, co-founder of the group,

told The Coast News that they are excited to support Harvey as he takes this on. “The support has been unbelievable,” EcholsHayes said. “We received signatures and support from people all over the nation, and I think that showed the DAA and the community that people really do care about this.” “I think that [Harvey] is going to need community support, as well, and we want to help with funding some of these projects and we're going to be exploring some ways to do that for specific things,” EcholsHayes continued. “I think that kind of community outreach is needed.”

San Diego utility prepares Encinitas rollout By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — While it’s not the first program of its kind in North County, San Diego Community Power will be one of the largest community choice energy programs in the state with Encinitas as a key member. In 2019, Encinitas joined with the cities of Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, La Mesa and San Diego to form San Diego Community Power, a new community choice aggregation to serve those cities as a locally-controlled alternative to the regional investor-owned utility, SDG&E. Clean Energy Alliance, which launched in May 2021, is a similar power provider for neighboring North County cities of Carlsbad, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Escondido and San Marcos. Like other community choice energy programs, San Diego Community Power will work to procure its own sources of energy for its customers while SDG&E still maintains the current infrastructure to deliver the energy to customers. Residents are able to opt out of the community choice program should they choose but Deputy Mayor Joe Mosca, who also serves as the chair of San Diego Community Power, believes the nonprofit municipal utility should be the easy choice for Encinitas residents.

“I’m not sure why you would stay with SDG&E,” Mosca told The Coast News. “If I’m going to give you more renewable energy at a discount, even at 100% renewable, our rates currently would put you at the same bill.” While that would be true if San Diego Community Power was available to customers today, the rates could change by the time the program launches in Encinitas this coming April. However, Mosca said it could make community choice energy more of a discount. “SDG&E just sent out notices that they are looking at increases in the neighborhood of 18%, so perhaps even by the time we launch, 100% (renewable) will be even more discounted than the rates at SDG&E,” Mosca said. San Diego Community Power will have several options for customers, including 50% renewable, the base for most customers, or a 100% renewable energy option that is a premium product. Encinitas residents will automatically be enrolled in the 100% renewable option with the chance to either opt down to 50% or opt out of the program entirely and stay with SDG&E. Customers automatically being entered into a 100% renewable option was

decided by the Encinitas City Council in its effort to fulfill its climate action plan. San Diego Community Power will have around 1 million customers between its members cities and the unincorporated parts of the county which have also joined the program. Due to its size it has started its rollout in phases. Municipal and commercial accounts have already begun to be phased into San Diego Community Power but residents will be notified via mailers and other advertising of their options as the fledgling utility prepares to roll out services to cities one at a time, starting with Imperial Beach. Where energy comes from and how it is delivered to customers is a complicated subject that can be hard

to explain. But keeping a high retention rate is key for any community choice energy program to remain fiscally viable. Without the resident accounts phased in yet, San Diego Community Power has seen an opt-out rate of about 1.5%, according to Interim CEO Bill Carnahan. “Probably the most volatile group is the residential because people tend to jump around,” Carnahan told The Coast News. “So we’re expecting that percentage to probably go up but we do have some head room. We hope it doesn’t go up and we’re going to try like hell to keep it from going up. But we’re realists and know that might happen.”

De-stress for a Healthier Mouth:

How stress affects your dental health New Year's is always a time for optimism as we look forward to healthy, happy and prosperous times ahead. Meanwhile we are in the aftermath of the holidays which, while enjoyable, can also be stressful. Relationships, finances, and shorter days affecting our internal ‘clock’ can all cause stress. Dr. Hans Selye, the scientist who pioneered the study of stress, defined it as “nonspecific response of the body to any demand.“ Dr. Selye emphasized that there are ‘good’ and ‘bad’ stressors. A ‘good’ stressor challenges us, pushing us past our comfort zone in a positive way to explore new areas of endeavor. In this article we will look at ‘bad’ stressors that affect health, including dental health, and overall well being. 1) Top of Mind as a stressor is unhealthy eating. Overindulging in sugary holiday treats puts an acidic load on our bodies and our mouth. From the dental viewpoint this can demineralize teeth and feed the unfriendly microbes that cause tooth decay and infection. In addition, both sugar and overeating put burdens on the digestive system. 2) Worry is a different kind of stress that can also turn the mouth acidic and keep us awake at night when our bodies should be resting and repairing. 3) Stress and worry can also cause us to clench

and grind our teeth, a condition known as bruxism. This sets up an unhealthy muscle patterning in the jaw that can contribute to TMD (temporomandibular disorder), pain, loose teeth, and gum recession if not addressed, 4) Stress can keep our salivary glands from functioning properly. This is important because of the role saliva plays in remineralizing teeth and in preparing food for digestion. Saliva is released by the parotid gland, which also releases enzymes to start the digestive process and activate our immune system. Our digestive system is very important to the immune system because there are so many immune cells in the gut. 5) Stress from toxic metals like nickel in some old crowns and braces and mercury found in amalgam fillings can leak into our body. In addition, mercury can be swallowed during removal of old dental work, adding more stress to the body. So it’s imperative to protect the patient from exposure to metals during dental work. 6) EMF’s (electromagnetic fields) from cell phones cause electrical charges in metal fillings and crowns and inflammation in the tissues of the head and neck. These microcharges can actually be measured in the mouth and are called galvanic charges. The FDA recently wrote a

large article highlighting galvanic/electrical charges in the mouth and their effects. Their paper also discusses corrosion in titanium (metal-based) implants. Here are some recommendations for alleviating stress and their effects on the mouth, digestive and immune systems. 1) Hydrate. Drink lots of water. Sometimes we think that we are hungry when we are really thirsty. 2) Use essential oils like lavender and chamomile in a diffuser which can calm and rebalance your nervous system and lessen the need for that extra helping or late night treat. Lavender oil applied to the hol-

low in the back of the neck can be soothing and relaxing. Herbs like Gymnema can help with sugar cravings. 3) Read labels! So many processed and prepared foods contain sugar. So can otherwise healthy foods like gluten free breads and granolas. When creating homemade desserts use Xylitol for your sweetener as it is actually good for your teeth. Stevia, an herbal sugar substitute can be used, although it can have a strong flavor or aftertaste. 4) Chamomile tea before bed is calming and can also be taken any time as a homeopathic remedy. It is also available as a capsule, tincture or in pill form. Other herbs that promote

these are made from a soft material that sometimes makes matters worse. You can check with your dentist as to the material the night guard would be made of, as acrylic is often used and is not biofriendly. Flexite and Astron are two acceptable alternative materials. 6) Salivary glands are located in the mouth, cheeks, lips and throat. The largest are the parotid glands, which are situated in front of the ears. The parotid glands can become blocked due to dehydration, smoking, certain medications and gum disease. Be mindful of how much water you drink and learn if any prescribed medications you take can cause dehydration. And if you have gum disease, consult a specialist, as this is a condition that can profoundly impact your health. 7) Get tested for metal levels in your body, especially if you still have metal restorations in your teeth other than gold. In addition, if you have metal restorations removed and replaced, make sure it is done safely. Don’t hold your cell phone up to your head, use the speaker or get ear buds.

restful sleep are kava kava, valerian, skullcap and passionflower. Combinations of the above herbs are also available. Another bedtime homeopathic remedy is Hyland’s Calms Forte. Rescue Remedy, a classic combination of flower essences, is another well known support for stressful times. Post-Trauma Care can be a powerful mood adaptor as well as other formulas in the Flourish line from Flower Essence Services. Dr. Carey O’Rielly, DDS 5) It is possible to reis a holistic dentist practictrain yourself to relax the jaw at night.

Tri-City Medical Center encourages San Diegans to donate blood Due to an unprecedented national blood shortage, Tri-City Medical Center is encouraging San Diegans to donate blood to meet the needs of the healthcare community. This emergency is all about supply and demand. A readily available supply of blood is critical to meet daily patient needs – whether it’s for trauma, surgery or transfusions after cancer treatments. The San Diego Blood Bank reports that it must collect more than 350 units of blood each day to meet the needs of local patients. According to the American Red Cross, blood and platelet donations typically drop off during and immediately after the winter holidays due to busy schedules, school breaks, colds and flu, and bad weather that can cancel blood drives. Now add in the ongoing effects of COVID-19. Many people are deferring their donations because of safety concerns and uncertainty about whether they are eligible to donate after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine or a positive test. Mobile blood drives sponsored by hospitals, businesses and schools have also been cancelled

because of the pandemic. These types of issues have disrupted the nation’s blood supply, resulting in dangerously low inventories, especially for blood types O positive and negative. According to the Red Cross, only 7% of the population are O negative, but the need for O negative blood is greatest as it is the universal blood type most often used during emergencies. But the demand for blood is always there. “In the ICU, our biggest demand for blood is for patients experiencing a severe gastrointestinal bleed or undergoing major surgery like open-heart,” said Winnie Madrid, RN. She has worked in Tri-City’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for more than 17 years. “So far, we have been able to get the blood we need; the only minor delays I have encountered occur when the patient has an antigen or needs platelets. Thankfully, we have not had to cancel any surgeries yet, but this may change as the pandemic comes and goes in waves.” The pandemic has increased the demand for blood and blood products

the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies (AABB), America’s Blood Centers and the American Red Cross are urging eligible, healthy individuals to contact their local blood center and make an appointment to donate blood today to meet the escalating demand. “People who have received the COVID-19 vaccine and booster can still donate blood, platelets or plasma if they meet certain criteria,” said Madrid. “It is so important that these individuals continue to donate as our blood supply is the lowest it’s been in years.” The American Red Cross follows the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) blood donation guidelines: • Eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with an inactivated or RNA-based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Novavax or Pfizer do not have to wait to donate as long as they are symptom-free and feeling well at the time of donation. • Eligible blood donors must wait 14 days before giving blood if they have:

• Received a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine or do not know what type of COVID-19 vaccine they received • Been diagnosed with COVID-19, had a positive COVID-19 diagnostic test, or are experiencing symptoms. “Those of us who work in the ICU at Tri-City know first-hand that donating blood saves lives,” said Madrid. “Each day, we come to work to provide the highest quality of care to our patients, and this includes being able to give them the blood or blood products they need to survive. We are grateful to everyone in our community who donates blood so that all patients can feel better and live a good life.” One pint of blood can save up to three lives. Donate today as the need has never been greater. To be eligible to donate whole blood, the American Red Cross requires that a person must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in generally good health. To learn more about donating blood, visit American Red Cross, San Diego Blood Bank or Tri-City.

and “quarantine,” meaning a student or faculty member is in isolation if they have shown symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive either through a PCR or at-home antigen test. Student and faculty members are in quarantine if they have been in close contact with someone who has either shown symptoms or has tested positive. If a student or faculty member is in isolation they must remain isolated for a minimum of five days and may return to campus if their symptoms are subsiding and they can provide a negative test result on day five or after. “That day five is dependent upon when their symptoms started or when their

positive test result was, whatever came first,” Director of School and Student Services Tiffany Hazelwood said. “If they can get a negative test result they can return as early as day six.” However, the student or faculty member must commit to wearing a tight-fitting face mask at all times when on campus, including during sports activities, and not stand within six feet from anyone who is immunocompromised. If they are unable to commit to those requirements, the individual must remain in isolation for 10 days. Students and faculty may use an at-home test to receive a negative result but for students, they must have their parents or guardians submit a student home test attestation form. Vaccination to

COVID-19 is recommended but not required at San Dieguito Union High School District, and as such, vaccinated and unvaccinated persons will have different rules for quarantine. If a person is fully vaccinated and showing no symptoms then they are not required to quarantine if they are in close contact with someone who is infected. Unvaccinated persons will have to quarantine for anywhere from 1-10 days if the individual was wearing a mask and 7-10 days if they were not. The district has stated they remain strongly committed to keeping schools open and only closing them as a last resort. To that end, the school board passed a resolution this week committing to keep its campuses open for “safe, in-person education.”

SAND

CONTINUED FROM A1

at least four, 600-foot groins spaced 1,000 feet apart along the pilot area. The staff report said an estimated 300,000-cubic-yards of sand would be deposited in the groin fields to start the proposed project. This irony did not sit well with Carlsbad Councilman Peder Norby, who blasted the Oceanside City Council for passing the action item in August without first consulting with Carlsbad officials. “I can see this ripple effect all the way down the coast," Norby said. "It’s a really, really amateur move. I’ll go on record asking the City of Oceanside to rescind that item.” By way of the north shore current, sand from Oceanside beaches ultimately finds its way to Carlsbad and other cities south, which is then used to replenish those beaches. The Carlsbad Beach Preservation Commission voted on Jan. 4 to recommend the City Council oppose Oceanside’s project. Carlsbad City Manager Scott Chadwick said the city was not contacted by Oceanside until Dec. 28. Since then, Chadwick reported having a productive call on Jan. 10 with Oceanside City Manager Deanna Lorson. In August 2021, the Oceanside City Council approved the Beach Sand Replenishment and Retention Device Feasibility Study

in a 4-1 vote. The study considered four options — more beach nourishment, groin installations, a south jetty extension or an artificial reef. Oceanside’s efforts to replenish sand on the city’s beaches rely on dredging the harbor, which takes sand and puts it on the city’s beaches. A finer grain of sand, it quickly makes its way from the beach into

the inner tidal zone and eventually ends up back in the harbor trapped like before due to shifting north and south swells. “Obviously, this is a regional problem,” Oceanside Mayor Esther Sanchez told the council on Jan. 11. “I’ve been in discussions with Mayor Matt Hall on how to address this issue. We’ve been talking with North County mayors on

how to move forward in an efficient way.” Other regional beach fills from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2001 and 2012 brought courser sand to the beaches, but the sand quickly dispersed further south, benefitting cities like Carlsbad and its Tamarack State Beach, which has its own jetty to trap sand there. “We’ve been losing

our shoreline for years,” Oceanside Public Works Director Kiel Koger said in August. “In the past 20 years since being monitored, we have lost our shoreline at a rate of 3 feet per year on average.” Oceanside plans on installing the groins south of Wisconsin Street to test their effectiveness, although the California Coastal Commission must

approve the plan. How the commission may rule, though, was a source of debate among the Oceanside City Council. Mayor Esther Sanchez voted against the plan, saying it is unlikely the commission would approve the plan and other options should be considered first before dumping millions of dollars into groins. Deputy Mayor Ryan Keim, who was in favor of moving forward with the project as soon as possible, said that although the commission could say no, he wants the city to try everything possible to fix the city’s beaches. Regardless, Oceanside still must first issue a request for a proposal for design, permitting and environmental work. “We don’t have dry sand on most of our beaches,” Keim added. “The goal is to have a robust program … (and) bring more sand to everyone south of us.” Laura Walsh, policy director at the Surfrider Foundation, said Oceanside should not be asking Carlsbad to sign off to give up its own sand for another community, noting the Coastal Commission has never approved a groin project at this scale. Additionally, Walsh said the Oceanside Public Works Director spoke of extending the project to a 16-groin field. Walsh said this project illustrates the domino impacts for cities south of Oceanside, while the plan could be jammed up by lawsuits.

Ocean Creek developers try to ease resident concerns By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Developers of a proposed apartment complex and mixeduse development are hoping to address residents’ traffic concerns by installing turn lanes and road connectors near the site's location at the busy intersection of Crouch Street and Oceanside Boulevard. According to developer JPI Companies, the project intends to install a left turn lane from Crouch to South Oceanside Boulevard, and connect a small segment of South Oceanside Boulevard at Crouch Street to the other segment of South Oceanside Boulevard near State Tree Drive. The developer decided to make this change to its traffic plans after hearing from residents at a community engagement meeting in November of last year. The nearly 13-acre, 49foot tall, four-story Ocean Creek project would include 295 apartment units, ranging from 531-square foot studios to 1,301-square foot, three-bedroom units — the bulk of which would consist of one and two-bedroom apartments. An additional 3,000 square feet of commercial or retail space would be included as part of the project’s mixed-use development plans. The project is identified as a Transit Priority Project (TPP) and is included in the city’s Housing Element and the Oceanside Boulevard

Master Plan. SANDAG has identified the project site as a smart growth opportunity due to its location next to the Crouch Street Sprinter Station, which would reduce the need for vehicles. Still, for nearby residents who frequently use the Crouch and Oceanside Boulevard intersection, they fear the development will only worsen traffic there. “It’s one of the worst

intersections in Oceanside,” said Nadine Scott, who lives in the nearby Fire Mountain neighborhood. Northbound Crouch Street intersects South Oceanside Boulevard to the left, then Skylark Drive to the right. The Sprinter train line also intersects Crouch Street just before reaching the intersection at Oceanside Boulevard. The project is still in

the review process. So far the developer has submitted materials three times to the city, the last of which was in the fall. The city returned comments in November on several items including the need for additional parking and traffic measures. “Essentially, the city is waiting for the applicant to submit revised materials,” said Stefanie Cervantes, the city planner who is review-

ing the Ocean Creek project. Cervantes said the developers submitted a local transportation analysis that has not been approved yet. She noted that comments sent back to the developer included the need for more intersections and additional traffic counts during school start and dismissal times, which is something Scott and other nearby residents wanted to happen.

“The traffic analysis was done during the quarantine period for schools, so it didn’t measure school traffic at all,” Scott said. “The study must be redone now that students are back.” Scott also said she would like to see the project connect the separated segments of South Oceanside Boulevard if approved. William Morrison, development director of JPI, believes the connection of South Oceanside Boulevard, and the left turn lane on Crouch Street, will help ease traffic congestion as well as address some of the city’s concerns. “We’re alleviating some of the issues in our traffic analysis because of the South Oceanside Boulevard connection,” Morrison said. Morrison also noted his team is working with the city on affordable housing requirements and is leaning toward providing such units on-site rather than on a separate development. He added that the project would not be providing Section 8 housing. Still, residents remain concerned about potential traffic and safety issues regarding the project. A website called protectfiremountain.com is gathering signatures to demonstrate the residents’ opposition to both the Ocean Creek development and a smaller density bonus project on Whaley Street that is also currently being reviewed by the city.

ECKERT

anybody needed help… whenever he was at the historical society he’d get it done, he’d pay for it himself, he did it all because he wanted the community to do well,” Lopez said. In addition to his work at the museum, Lopez emphasized the former supervisor’s varied contributions to the Vista community. Eckert was a board member and supporter of the local Boys & Girl’s Club, and was heavily involved in a variety of other local groups, including the Elk’s Club, Rotary Club of Vista and Vista Junior Chamber of Commerce. Lopez expressed that Eckert was extremely passionate about helping the youth, recalling at one point he bought a piece of property in Santa Fe that was used as a drug rehabilitation center for young adults for several years, with Eckert being directly involved in the program. “There’s no one who donated to this community more,” Lopez said. “He had Vista in mind with every project he worked on, and he allocated so much of his own money to this city in a lot of ways.” Perhaps no charitable cause was closer to Eckert’s heart than the Boys & Girl’s Club of Vista, of which he was a founding member, according to club president Matt Koumaras, who spoke of the former supervisor’s exceptional commitment and financial support for the organization. “(Eckert) was not only a major donor but he also really got the community inspired to help the club,” Koumaras said. “He liked the Boys & Girls Club so much because he really saw that kids are the future, and he said that if you want to change America, start by supporting the kids.” Koumaras and Lopez spoke both of Eckert’s generosity and his people-oriented demeanor, with Koumaras calling Eckert a “father figure” to himself and others. “He was a wonderful person — he was a great storyteller, a problem solver, and a lot of things. He was a caring person with a wonderful smile, a great sense of humor, and very patriotic,” Koumaras said. Like most prominent community figures, Eckert rubbed some people the wrong way and didn’t always get along with everyone, but no one could question his generosity, optimism and good-naturedness, Lopez said. “Sure there were people that didn’t like him, but even to those people he was always polite, he never badmouthed anyone, a mean word never came out of his mouth…people can’t say enough about the good he did here.” Eckert grew up in Lawndale, California, and moved to Vista after graduating high school. He met his wife Diane in 1954 and the couple later had two children, Robert and Paula. Eckert is survived by his children, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Del Mar council wrestles with train viability By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — The Del Mar City Council heard a resolution Monday night seeking to analyze the longterm viability and usefulness of trains in the San Diego region but decided not to move forward with the resolution as written. The council agreed to revisit the resolution, brought forward by Councilmember Dan Quirk and Deputy Mayor Tracy Martinez, at a later time. Quirk has been outspoken about his skepticism of railway lines in San Diego, specifically that the Coaster and Pacific Surfliner lines are not financially viable anymore, a perspective that has caused some disagreement and tension between him and Mayor Dwight Worden. At Monday’s meeting, Quirk and Martinez introduced a resolution “supporting efforts to analyze and better understand the long-term train viability, usefulness, social equity, and alternative uses of the train tracks and related services,” according to the agenda report written by the two councilmembers. “In Del Mar, ‘no train’ is one of the options we believe the community needs to be thoroughly vetting, just as we are vetting options such as leaving the train tracks on the Del Mar bluffs, blasting a tunnel through the Del Mar hillside, or running the tracks

along the I5 highway, all of which present very significant costs, concerns, conflicts, and risks to Del Mar residents and the broader community,” the agenda report continued. The report presented by the two council members outlined social equity disparities between train users and non-users, as well as financial costs associated with different rail lines throughout San Diego County, including the potential costs of moving the Del Mar tracks to an underground tunnel. Additionally, the report also emphasized the non-financial costs associated with trains in Del Mar including the trenches,

are also in regular communication with the 22nd District Agricultural Association, or DAA, about potential impacts to the Horsepark and the Del Mar Fairgrounds. “The [DAA] was obviously very much concerned, especially during Breeder’s Cup about the safety of the horses, the noise and things of that nature… so we definitely are going to keep in communication with them” Valenzuela said. “We know that if things start going back to a more normal schedule we’re going to have to

make some adjustments, but at the same time, we want to keep the project moving forward. The more time we have to shorten construction or change our schedule, the longer the project will go as a whole. So we really would love to get in and out of there as quickly and safely as possible,” Valenzuela added. Valenzuela said the portion of the project in the Horsepark is very minimal and is expected to wrap up by the time the fair season comes around. The entire is expected to be completed by around February of 2023. The cost range for the project will be $20 to $40 million, according to SDG&E.

barriers and fences that are planned for the Del Mar bluffs, arguing that these financial and non-financial costs are not justified considering the consistently declining ridership on these rail lines. The remaining three council members, however, disagreed with the resolution and with the data presented in some capacity, with a couple of council members even saying that some of the numbers and arguments were exaggerated. “It’s a little bit delusional to say that we’re doing the study just to study. There is an endgame on this and the endgame for Dan and Tracy seems to be ‘let’s

eliminate the train, then all of our problems will be solved,’” Councilmember David Druker said. “You’ve created stats to make your arguments correct.” Druker added that the city and the council will lose credibility and look “foolish” if they focus on getting rid of trains rather than the “real problem,” which is getting the train off of the bluffs. Worden said he respects the opinions of Quirk and Martinez but does not agree with them bringing that perspective to the council asking them to endorse it as a policy. “You tangled up this apparently innocuous request for information with

a bunch of stuff about why it’s clear you’ve already reached a conclusion,” Worden said. Councilmember Terry Gaasterland said she was hoping the resolution would be focused on new data and really understanding ridership. “The resolution, the ‘be it resolved,’ is clear and simple and something I absolutely can support, but eight of the ‘Whereas,’ if they are deleted completely, I can support this,” Gaasterland said. “With some polishing and amendment, I can support this, but it would have to be in the spirit of what the resolution itself is in.” The council heard two public comments on the issue, including one from Matthew Tucker, executive director for the North County Transit District (NCTD). “This staff report indicates a lack of understanding regarding transportation system planning, operations and travel demand management,” Tucker said. “The Coaster was designed and developed to complement the Interstate-5 Corridor and provide congestion relief that voters overwhelmingly support in San Diego County.” After a tense discussion, the council decided not to vote on the resolution, allowing Gaasterland to rework the resolution with Quirk and bring it back to the council.

O’side dog beach proposal shrinks for more appeal By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — Organizers of the controversial dog beach proposal have shrunk the boundary in an effort to ease concerns from those skeptical about having a dog beach in town. The dog beach would sit between Lifeguard Tower 18 and the northern jetty at the Harbor Beach. The beach would operate under limited seasonal and daily hours that have yet to be determined, and would be contained by the area’s natural boundaries including the jetty and tower. Oceanside Dog Beach Inc. is the group leading the effort. Originally, the group wanted to include nearly the entire harbor beach as part of the dog beach boundary, but its organizers decided to change the boundary to its much smaller, currently proposed size after hearing concerns from other residents. “It is an area of the beach that is underutilized,” said Michelle Lustig, board president of Oceanside Dog Beach Inc. Residents in favor of having a dog beach in Oceanside want to be able to give their dogs a chance to be off-leash by the water without having to drive all the way to Del Mar or fur-

Stuart is an Oceanside resident who is concerned about the potential environmental impacts the dog beach would have on the beach, especially with several protected species of birds in the area. One of those birds is the western snowy plover, which has a dedicated enclosure just south of the southern jetty at the harbor beach.

These birds nest and raise their chicks on the beach. The snowy plover population has been declining for several years due to loss of habitat from recreation and development, which is part of the reason why the state and other municipalities ban off-leash dogs on beaches in an effort to preserve the species as well as other marine life.

Snowy plovers are known to flee their nests when dogs are near and whether or not they are on leashes. If a dog begins to chase the snowy plovers, they can end up abandoning their nests altogether. “They are a natural resource that can’t ever be brought back if they’re gone,” Stuart said. Now that the proposed dog beach borders have shrunk to just north of Tower 18, which is the farthest lifeguard tower on the harbor beach away from the snowy plover enclosure, that reduces some of the potential impacts the dog

They also worry about leftover feces from the dogs, but Lustig said people who typically use dog beaches are good about cleaning up. “If you’ve ever been to a dog beach, people hold others accountable,” she said. “When we visit the beach, we end up picking up human trash, not animal trash -- dirty diapers, soda bottles and all kinds of plastics.” Oceanside Dog Beach Inc. is hoping to organize volunteers to clean up after the dog beach. Lustig said the group already has multiple residents itching to get involved. So far, more than 3,200 people have signed the group’s petition in favor of the dog beach. The group recently reached out to the San Diego Humane Society to let them know about their dog beach effort. According to spokesperson Nina Thompson, the humane society wouldn’t be involved in the management of the dog beach besides enforcing city laws, but they would be willing to help in the process of discussing how it could work if requested by city leaders. Last month, City Council narrowly approved its direction to staff to look into the possibility of having a dog beach somewhere along the city’s coastline. of whom have been here for 20 years.” For the Peterson siblings, Maureen said that the the shop will always hold “special” value to them as a reminder of their parents legacy as well as the community’s extraordinary devotion to their family. “Owning this store has meant everything to us,” she said. “My mom and my dad put their heart and soul into this…they put their best product out there, they were perfectionists, and always good to their employees, this was their everything…and for us this was our home away from home.” used by other agencies to gain access to Carlsbad’s data. She cited an example from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department tracking someone suspected of welfare fraud, although she said there was no proof. “This has prompted cities to pass more restrictive ordinances,” Schumacher said in 2018. “This has been an eye-opening foray into privacy issues. No matter how stringently audited or what our MOU (memorandum of understanding) looks like, our data is being used not according to our MOU.” Escondido’s hit rate, though, is just 0.9% having scanned more than eight million license plates and securing 82,000 results.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the

public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this internet website http:// www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-14-618023-JP. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction.

Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be

obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale.

This shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Trustor, the Trustee, the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s Agent, or the Beneficiary’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.

Case# 37-2021-00050807PR-LA-CTL To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Jacqueline

Jean Kahl aka Jacqueline Kahl. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Janine Morrell, in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego. The Petition for Probate requests that Janine Morrell be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and

shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: February 23, 2022; Time: 1:30 PM; in Dept.: 502; Room: Hon. John B. Scherling. Court address: 1100 Union St., San Diego CA 92101, Central Courthouse. Appearances may be made in person in the department;

for the people we do hire, they’re overwhelmed because they’re too few and there’s too much work so they don’t last very long,” she said. “It’s a huge challenge trying to have a staff and also making sure we even have the products we need.” According to Cynthia, the mall’s decline also has to do with a lack of proper administration as well as Westfield managers' poor marketing strategy. Heavy rent increases for tenants have pushed several smaller establishments in the mall out of business altogether, Cynthia said. The store owner added that the complex’s managers have not been strategic about leasing space to tenants in a way that keeps the shopping center vibrant and attractive as a whole to customers, instead of leasing out vacant units without regard for the impact on the mall’s overall composition. “They’re not leasing it the right way, they’re not looking at what they can do to bring the vibrancy of this place back and have a good mix of tenants…they rent units just to get them rented and not to make healthy choices of tenants, they just want the first person willing to pay,” Cynthia said. Another issue is that the mall fails to update changing hours for its stores online, which results in customers being frustrated and confused about when businesses are actually open. “They’re not managing it well, they’re not having good marketing practices…like they’ll tell you what the hours are and then you come in and it’s something different that shows you that they’re not paying attention…it’s like the management has just given up,” Cynthia said. Westfield declined to comment for this story. To address these chal-

MEET THE WHALES

T he C oast News lenges, Rowten said the Escondido Chamber of Commerce has been actively working with Westfield to improve the mall’s promotion strategies. With many of the center’s stores also being hit hard by increasing consumer preference for online shopping, the chamber president expressed that it’s important that the city step up its efforts to educate Escondido residents on the importance of buying local, as a way of supporting not only the mall but other struggling establishments throughout the city. “What we have to do is educate people to say there’s a real benefit to having the online convenience with shopping but that comes at a great cost…we have to really raise our voices and tell people that there’s a reason to shop local and there are convenient ways to do that, and by doing that there can be a revival in this community when it comes to the importance of shopping local,” he said. To this end, Rowten said that the chamber has been working with Westfield on a new mobile app unique to the mall that will streamline the online shopping experience for customers. The app will contain a directory of the mall’s different businesses that will compare products and prices at different stores and allow people to reserve items in advance of coming into the mall and picking them up. “We’ll be sharing information with this app that will allow people to shop local…it’s a challenge but if we all work together and understand that significance, we have a real community here and it’s all possible,” Rowten said. “We have to stem the tide of [closures] and bring relief to our businesses at the mall…but overall we’re optimistic because there’s a lot of growth and prosperity to be realized in Escondido.”

Carlsbad preps for new electoral map By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — There is approximately one month left before the city has its new electoral maps. The City of Carlsbad Independent Redistricting Commission held its third of four scheduled virtual public hearings on Jan. 13. Dozens of maps have already been submitted to the city and its contracted demographer, National Demographics Corporation. The commission is using newly released 2020 census data, although the process was slowed due to the pandemic and the state continues to lag releasing the data. The maps must be approved no later than April 17, while the commission will hold a regular meeting on Jan. 27 and a final public hearing on Feb. 17. Shannon Kelly, a demographer at National Demographics Corporation, has been administering and advising the commission on the maps and state and federal law, along with Deputy City Attorney Cindie McMahon. “In terms of the decision-making process, NDC has shared the federal, state and best practices criteria with the commission several times (at every meeting) and that will continue to be a core part of the presentations made to the commission,” said Kristina Ray, the city’s director of communication and engagement. The current map was created in 2017 by residents Arnie Cohen and Brian Flock, who has since moved out of state. Cohen, a Republican, and Flock, a Democrat, each drew a map, then compared those and created one the Carlsbad City Council adopted. Cohen and Flock said in a previous story they wanted all districts to have portions of the coast, railroad, Interstate 5, El Camino Real and border a neighboring city. The city, meanwhile, went to districts to avoid a potential

lawsuit, although many cities in the state still have at-large City Council elections. The commission, which consists of seven people and was created by the City Council, started in late July 2021 and holds monthly meetings, along with several public hearings and public workshops. Any member of the public may submit a map through one of the tools provided by the city. The commission’s directives are to keep the core of existing districts and consider communities of interest. Additionally, the maps cannot favor or discriminate against a political party and must contain: equal populations (within a 10% deviation) without gerrymandering, undivided neighborhoods, easily identifiable boundaries, according to Kelly.

Also, there was debate over the residences of an incumbent and political party during the Dec. 16 meeting. Chairman Michael Fabiano asked about the differences between where an incumbent lives versus considering a political party. Fabiano wanted to avoid drawing out an incumbent, but McMahon said it could not be considered. Kelly, meanwhile, said voter registration also could not be considered by the commission, however, it would appear difficult to prevent the public from doing so as the tools used by the city don’t include voter registration information; but an individual could use county registration by districts to draw their map. The commission also assigns each district designation, such as District 1, etc. In theory, the districts

At times, the commission has veered off its course discussing issues like the McClellan-Palomar Airport and other political topics, which cannot be considered for the maps. At times, McMahon has had to reel in the commission and keep the discussion germane to redistricting in accordance with state law. Fabiano asked for voter registration data during a recent meeting, but McMahon told Fabiano it was a violation of the law, and the commission could not use it in their maps.

Local girl helps fund pets for kids

By Staff

RANCHO SANTA FE — A San Diego tween is using her savvy business skills to help children in need through the healing power of animals, one bracelet at a time. Ariela Leff is just 11 years old, but she is already a finding unique ways to make a big impact in her community. Leff is the founder of Lulu’s Bracelets and donates 50% of each sale to Helen Woodward A nimal C enter ’s Pet Encounter Therapy (PET) proLEFF gram. She has already made a $250 donation, making it possible for children with special needs to receive a therapeutic visit from PET animals. Now, post-holiday bracelet sales, Leff is ready to fund another animal encounter. With the support of Whatever It Takes, or WIT, an organization helping teens and tweens develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills, Leff started Lulu’s Bracelets last summer. And her mission is to use her passion for making beautiful beaded bracelets with helping to bring the unconditional love of animals to those in need. “At WIT, we teach our young entrepreneurs the importance of not only creating a sustainable business, but also creating impact by giving back to organizations, charities or social causes. Given Ariela’s love of dogs and desire to help children who are in the hospital, it made sense that she selected PET as her giveback organization,” said Sarah Hernholm, WIT president and founder. “I know that sometimes balancing school and Lulu’s Bracelets is a lot for her, but she will say – ‘Each bracelet gets me closer to helping more kids and more dogs.’” The Center’s PET TURN TO BRACELETS ON B2

When I think that now, every single time that woman wants a smoke, she has to get up and go out into the 114-degree Palm Springs heat, a shiver of pleasure runs down my spine. I am hard-pressed to keep from laughing aloud at the thought, and jumping up to do a little happy dance. If I were still there, I might even post a sign — a big sign — on my desk that reads, “I was right and you were so, so wrong!” I am mature. I am in control. I do not rise to anger easily with adults these days.

DEL MAR — An internationally acclaimed three-dimensional art exhibition featuring the works of Vincent Van Gogh is coming to the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is an immersive art experience that allows visitors to see some of the world’s most famous pieces of art in one place. The show will run from Jan. 14 through March 6 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Wyland Center and showcases more than 300 of Van Gogh’s iconic pieces including “The Starry Night,” “Sunflowers” and ‘Café Terrace at Night.” The concept was created by French-Canadian Creative Director Mathieu St-Arnaud in collaboration with Normal Studio. “An imaginative and fully-immersive adventure, Beyond Van Gogh takes on the challenge of breathing new life into Van Gogh’s vast body of work. Through the use of cutting-edge 3D projection technology and

music to illuminate all of his genius, guests can experience the artist with all their senses,” said St-Arnaud in a statement. Montreal-based art historian Fanny Curtat, a consultant on the project, described the experience as magical and fantasy that allows visitors to “go beyond the frame.” “I think everybody needed this type of project where you're just surrounded by Vincent’s vision of the

world, which was filled with joy, filled with color, filled with movement, and that he himself thought as a sort of remedy for his own ailments,” Curtat said. “To see children running around and just following the brushstrokes and the colors. It's been truly incredible,” Curtat continued. “People are moved and I think they get to connect with Vincent in a very different way.” The show takes about

And if I can brag a bit to our Eastern and Midwestern friends: Our snow’s better than your snow. Rather than slushy and wet, Western snow is dry and powdery. It may be a bit more of a challenge to build that snowman, but West-ofthe-Rockies snow is more ski- and play-friendly, and this is where you can find it: • San Diego County – Depending on elevation and conditions, head east and up for snow at Palomar Mountain State Park at 5,000 feet; Cuyamaca Rancho State Park at 6,500 feet; and the historic gold-mining town of Julian at 4,200 feet. • Riverside County – It may be warm in Palm Springs, but take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, with the world’s largest rotating tramcar, and you’ll find another world on Mount San Jacinto at 8,500 feet. The 2.5-mile ride up along the cliffs of Chino Canyon is a thrill, too. On the other side of the mountain is the picture-book town of Idyllwild at 5,400 feet with

Phase II of wetlands restoration project begins By City News Service

DEL MAR — Work began last week on Phase II of the San Dieguito Lagoon Wetland Restoration project intended to create a new trail connection, expand river habitat and convert former agricultural fields to tidal wetlands. The San Diego Association of Governments, the California Department of Transportation and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority began the

work on the wetlands, south of Via De La Valle and east of Interstate 5. The plans include connecting the Dust Devil Nature Trail to the Coast to Crest Trail, expanding the riparian habitat along the San Dieguito River, and converting 84 acres of degraded land into wetlands. In total, 64 acres of tidal salt marsh, 15 acres of brackish wetlands — a mixture of saltwater and freshwater — and an additional

five acres of riparian habitat will be restored through this project. “This project is a great example of government agencies recognizing the interconnected nature of ecosystems,” SANDAG Chair and Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear said. “We can have better transportation systems and healthier habitat at the same time. “This region has stunning biodiversity and we are enhancing it for future

It’s not too late! “Open enrollment is still available until January 31st for individuals, families, Covered CA, and small groups. Call me today to schedule a free consultation.

generations.” Phase II is planned to cost $87 million and is made possible by the SANDAG TransNet Environmental Mitigation Program and federal funding. According to SANDAG, restoration efforts in the San Dieguito Lagoon basin are beginning with the removal of existing non-native vegetation, some invasive species and accumulated soils to allow tidal flow and planting of new wetland plant species — known as clearing and grubbing. The excavated soil will be placed on a nearby slope, south of the lagoon, and replanted as coastal sage scrub. New wetland and native upland vegetation will be planted once the excavation is complete. Clearing and grubbing will occur intermittently through mid-February 2022. The Dust Devil Nature Trail will be closed to public use Mondays through Fridays. The trail will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. January to March and October to December. From April to September, the trail will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The parking lot will be closed while the trail is closed and the trail is subject to closure throughout the duration of construction.

PET animals range from dogs and cats to rabbits and even miniature horses. Last year the program facilitated more than 5,300 therapeutic animal interactions. In mid-December, Leff made her first donation of $250 to Helen Woodward Animal Center’s PET program, funding a visit to a local school for children with special needs. “The best part of Ariela’s gift is that all the love and care that she put into making and selling her bracelets has been beautifully transformed into

children receiving the love and care of our therapy animals,” said PET Manager Robin Cohen. “We are not only impressed by Ariela’s talent and willingness to give back, we are so grateful. Her donation is helping to bring smiles to many kids facing difficult times. Leff continues her sales through Lulu’s Bracelets and is getting ready to present another $250 donation from her profits to the PET program. This donation will help fund an upcoming visit to San Diego Center for Children on Jan. 28. More about Lulu’s Bracelets can be found on Instagram.

State bill would prevent surprise SVP placements By City News Service

REGION — Two local state senators have co-authored a bipartisan bill introduced Tuesday that would prevent the state from placing sexually violent predators in unsuspecting communities. Sen. Brian Jones, R-Santee, and Sen. Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, along with Assemblyman Jim Cooper, D-Elk Grove, wrote the Sexually Violent Predator Accountability, Fairness, and Enforcement Act following high-profile incidents of California's state hospitals attempting to place SVPs in East and North San Diego County. “The recent cases of Douglas Badger and Merle Wakefield fit an ongoing pattern of deceit and deception by the Department of State Hospitals,'' Jones said. “Families throughout Mt. Helix, Ranchita, Borrego Springs and Rancho Bernardo were jolted by the state's attempt to put an SVP in their neighborhoods. “Thankfully in these cases, judges have intervened and prevented the forced and dangerous placements of SVPs into inappropriate neighborhoods,” he said. If passed, Senate Bill 841 would: — Place a hard limit on the placement of SVPs within a county to no more 40% in any one supervisorial district; — Mandate that the director of the Department of State Hospitals publicly report annually how many SVPs are in each county, and in which supervisorial district; — Make public safety the highest criteria of any

Owners give historic Leucadian bar fresh paint, new life By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — Late last year, some Encinitas residents may have noticed a long-standing watering hole updated to a new kind of Leucadia funky. Long before the city of Encinitas was incorporated, the future site of Leucadia's neighborhood “surf” bar was a market. In 1954, Army-veteran John Kentera and his brother Andy first opened Johnny's Beer Bar, which eventually became The Leucadian Bar and Restaurant. The Kentera family still owns the property but sold the business in the ’80s. By that time, the bar was well known for its regular live music, bringing in local and other well-known musicians to entertain patrons on a nightly basis. Since then, the Leucadian (formerly Bar Leucadian) has changed hands a couple of times and even had a few run-ins with law enforcement over the years. Today, David Shapiro and his business partners Michael Chopp and Doug Sondomowicz run the business. The trio of owners met as students at Arizona State University before they moved to San Diego in 1998. “So far so good, it’s been a really great response from the neighborhood,” Shapiro said, regarding the local response to the bar’s recent upgrades. “It was pretty beat down so it took a lot of effort to clean it up.” Shapiro and his partners obtained a liquor license in June 2020, but did not reopen the bar, now called simply “Leucadian,” until October. Before swinging open the doors to the public, the business partners decided the building needed a fresh coat of paint. “Our thought was we wanted to be around another 50 or 60 years,” Shapiro said. “It was gray and black with bars on some of the windows so my partner Doug had the wonderful idea of throwing stripes on the building in Padres’ colors on a cream uniform color. Kind of tying in the sports aspect with Coach Kentera.” While the interior also received an upgrade, it was designed to maintain a retro vibe. The addition

THE LEUCADIAN BAR has been a popular drinking spot with live music since it was founded by the late John Kentera and his brother in the 1950s. After changing hands several times over the years, the bar has new owners who have made some updates, including a fresh coat of paint, while hoping to maintain a retro vibe.

of brand-new pool tables, darts, shuffleboard and arcade machines serve to liven up the scene. “But we kept all of the old nautical stuff, the

bartop, the portholes behind the bar with the ship paintings. Anything that we could find that could stay, we tried to do that,” Shapiro said.

Shapiro said they also tried to make the bar more female-friendly by brightening the building’s exterior and interior and making some key renovations to the women’s restroom. “We wanted to bring a bigger crowd overall and thought that would only happen if the ladies who come are more comfortable. So we made the women’s restroom nice because a lot of women like going

to dive bars but they don’t usually like the bathrooms so much,” Shapiro said. By law, the new operators can not offer live music at the bar or apply for that permit until two years after acquiring their liquor license. Shapiro and his partners hope to obtain those permits when the time comes due to the bar’s rich history of featuring live music.

But the energy since reopening the Leucadian Bar has not been lacking. Shapiro said patrons young and old have been pleased with the new changes to a familiar spot in town. “There’s younger patrons who have come in the early to mid-20s who are having a good time and older patrons who have come in to give us the thumbs up,” Shapiro said. “There was a fellow who lives up the hill who came to our reopening and gave us an old menu from the ’50s when it operated as a restaurant.” There are plans down the line for more updates to the bar, including upgrading a parking lot that tends to flood during heavy rains and other cosmetic and structural additions. For now, the bar is a place for Leucadians of all ages to enjoy a night out. “We’re just happy and excited to continue to be a part of Encinitas and Leucadia and we’re so excited about the future and we hope everything continues to open up,” Shapiro said.

I

t’s been a long time since I’ve ridden an adult wave. You know, the type of dark-water menace that siphons everything off the reef before unloading it all with enough force to pin you to the bottom and leave you unsure of which way is up. Not that I was ever a big-wave surfer. Not even close. Hey, even wimps have dreams. Like most of you, I will never surf Mavericks or Jaws. Big winter swells in the local vicinity are enough, often too much for me these days. The last time I was out on a truly big day I snapped my leash and, while swimming toward shore, was haunted by the thought that I might not make it in. (My greatest comfort at the time was that sharks probably wouldn’t want my pathetic corpse.) That was a wakeup call, and ever since that day, I have been involved in working to attain a higher level of fitness through better nutrition, walking, running, swimming, breathing exercises and, finally, boxing. As I mentioned in a previous column, boxing is a great cross-training exercise for surfers. It increases strength, flexibility, balance, endurance and focus. And, just as in surfing, there are consequences to not paying attention while boxing. (Please don’t get the idea that I do battle in the ring. My punches are leveled against inanimate objects that don’t hit back.) I first became aware of the benefits of a boxing workout through Hawaiian surfer/shaper, the late, great Ben Aipa. Aipa, who often tended toward the heavy side, had slimmed down and toned up considerably then, in his early 50s. When I asked him how, he told me he was attending a boxing gym. That conversation took place more than 20 years ago, and it took nearly that long for me to move on the idea. Even then, it wasn’t my idea, but that of boxing coach and heavyweight

phenom Trent Rawlins who persuaded me to attend classes. A 250-pound pro heavyweight with a right cross that tends to drop opponents in the first round is quite persuasive. Rawlins, as I have noted in a previous column, is a trainer at Encinitas Boxing Club where he and club manager Dana Donahue have assisted in improving both my physical and mental conditioning. During a recent session, I noticed a fellow student with a T-shirt bearing the word “Humble” on it. Approaching the wearer, I said that I liked the logo and he explained that this was his new company and that he had only recently launched the brand. He introduced himself as Jackson Hale, politely excused himself, walked to his car and returned with a T-shirt and his new book, “You Were Created for Greatness: A Philosophy of Wholeness.” I’m benefiting greatly from Hale’s words, as they are packed with as much power as a Trent Rawlins uppercut. Hale, who looks far too young to have attained such knowledge as found in the 120 pages of “Greatness,” is also the founder of 360Wellness, a Christian Wellness Center. In the book he explains the five keys to wellness — recovery, exercise, nutrition, mindfulness and faith. Those interested in improving their surfing IQ can learn more about Jackson Hale and 360wellness by visiting linktr.ee/360wellness. *** Attention senior citizens: Anyone who is a member of “Silver Sneakers” is now eligible for free training at the Encinitas Boxing Club.

In what one police officer called a “real-life Lassie situation,” a 1-year-old Shiloh shepherd named Tinsley is being hailed as a hero for saving her owner and another person after a car crash on I-89 in Vermont. WMUR-TV reported that Cam Laundry and his passenger had been ejected when his truck hit a guardrail and went off the road on Jan. 3. When state troopers and a Lebanon, New Hampshire, police officer found Tinsley on the side of the road, she evaded capture and led them to the scene of the accident. “We were shaken up, didn’t know what was happening,” Laundry said. “Next thing we know, the cops were there, and it was all because of her.” Tinsley’s reward? A venison burger. Follow-up: Laundry has a February court date for driving under the influence. At least Tinsley was sober. [WMUR, 1/5/2022]

Sets Kitchen & Bar dazzles in San Elijo lick the plate david boylan

T

o be honest I never really knew much about San Elijo Hills other than driving through it a few times on my way to San Marcos. A little research got me educated on this master-planned community with stellar views that was designed to offer smalltown charm along with all of the conveniences and amenities that come with living near a city. The dining options were what I was interested in and those are plentiful as well, with over a dozen options including Sets Kitchen & Bar, which was my destination. Given the name, I immediately associated it with surfing given the “sets” we desire as surfers. It could also apply to the killer sunsets visible from most of San Elijo Hills. Alas, “Sets” actually stands for “San Elijo Town Square,” but given the surfing-themed décor of the restaurant, I think they are going with that version

for now. Sets offers a nicely designed space with an open, airy feel with a spacious outdoor patio and it’s tastefully decorated. It feels like the place that locals would gravitate to, where adults can feel at home with or without kids in tow. Owner Kevin Egan is a Carlsbad native who started as a dishwasher at 15 and has owned a simi-

lar concept for the past 15 years in Vail, Colorado. “I wanted to create a place where families are comfortable going multiple times a week,” Kevin said. “I have a wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters, so I created an environment that we as a family would go to and enjoy regularly. Sets is a family focused, locals driven, sports influenced concept.”

Egan described the menu as “Americana Eclectic,” which is a new one for me but it really opens up a kitchen’s creativity … a little bit of everything. I’m totally fine with that as long as the quality is there. And under Executive Chef Chris McLane, Sets more than meets my expectations for quality cuisine. Before I got into the food I noticed the very cre-

ative cocktail menu. Sets is the only full-service restaurant and bar in San Elijo, so they have made it diverse and well rounded. These specialty cocktails give you plenty of options. The R & R with vodka and lavender syrup is their most popular drink but the Smokey Marg with mezcal, Aperol Spritz and one I will be back for, the Ranch Water with Corralejo Reposado Tequila, fresh lime juice, Topo Chico and lime wedge, all sound super refreshing. The wine list was equally impressive, and I went with an A to Z dry Riesling from Oregon that is a great example of them stepping out of the chardonnay and sauvignon blanc box. Not that there is anything wrong with those wines, but if you have an eclectic menu, your wine list should have a bit of that going as well, and it does. Kevin gave me a long list of recommendations, so I opted for the Mussels Madness that features a tasty broth and plenty of bread to soak it up with. I also almost never order chicken at restaurants, but he suggested their Golden Piccata, a Sets’ twist on the traditionTURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON B11

Ercolano wraps ‘21 with a tasty wine dinner

T

aste of Wine and Food's 2020 Restaurateur of the Year, Sal Ercolano, proprietor of Carmel Valley's Flora Bar and Kitchen and Del Mar’s West End Bar & Kitchen, along with his stalwart employees, is commended for another spectacular year of wine dinners with some of the most renowned wineries in the world. In 2021, West End and Flora, under Ercolano's leadership, collectively hosted more than 24 dinners, with a new winery each month despite the trials, tribulation, and turbulence of Covid-19, especially in the food and beverage industry. It was only fitting that Ercolano's last wine dinner featured Schramsberg's “Royal” Sparkling Wines and their J Davies still wines. Schramsberg’s history dates to the 19th century when German immigrant Jacob Schram first made his home and started his winery on Diamond Mountain along with digging out caves into the mountain. Over one hundred years later, Jack and Jamie Davies purchased and restored the Schramsberg estate in 1965. With no experience in winemaking, but with unlimited passion, the Davies had an ambitious goal to create “America’s most prestigious, select, and admired sparkling wine; chosen for special guests, special gifts, pampering oneself and expressing one’s taste in unique products.” Through the decades, this spirit of innovation earned Schramsberg and the Davies worldwide praise and recognition. Most notably their innovation played a role in world history when their original sparkling wine, Blanc de Blancs, was used for President Richard Nixon’s 1972 “Toast to Peace” with China’s Premier Zhou Enlai. Schramsberg’s wines have since been served at official State functions by every U.S. Presidential administration, earning the reference as a “royal” wine dinner. John Parker, Sales Rep., Republic Natl. Distributing Company was on hand to narrate the dinner that kicked off with mini bites and NV Mirabelle Brut. Parker shared, “UnTURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON B10

Beer trends in 2022 with Nick Corona of Five Suits Brewing cheers! north county

ryan woldt

Y

ep, it’s officially ... (checking notes) ... 2022. The calendar really did turn over which means another year of craft beer drinking and craft beer growth. A recent Industry Research report anticipates a $65,000,000,000 increase in worldwide revenue between 2021-2025. That’s billions with a capital “B.” I would argue with the researchers about whom they consider a craft brewery but I think we would agree that a lot of beer is going to be drunk. What will drive this growth? Each year there is a new drinking trend, whether it's hazy beers, ready-todrink cocktails or hard seltzers. I reached out to a bunch of local breweries to ask what they thought would be trending in 2022. Nick Corona, owner of Five Suits Brewing in Vista, shared a thoughtful reply spanning a gamut of topics starting with how he anticipates needing to run the business during another year in which the coronavirus pandemic will create known and unknown challenges. “On the business side, many breweries have already recognized that a requirement of operations during this pandemic is

learning to do more with less,” Nick said. “With supply lines, staffing, & costs all in a state of flux, the best way to insulate against these uncertainties is to find ways to operate with more fluidity. I expect these strategies to be amplified in 2022 as we continue to see more of an ‘all hands on deck’ approach. “As an owner, I know that I need to be on-site, available, and ready for the next challenge as much as possible, for the foreseeable future,” Nick said. “We are two years into the pandemic with mandates still rolling out [and] while operating allowances are unfortunately being pulled back from government entities. “That’s going to test the mettle for many of us. Solid teams and solid work cultures will survive, but anything less will be put to the test. It is important now, more than ever, to make time for your team members.

Check them through.” back, as I’ll be sharing the Nick then touched on something that I happen to be experiencing in my personal drinking adventures, which is the return to drinking beer that I’ve found to be enjoyable time after time. “On the consumer side, prices are bound to rise slightly due to the roll down that we are already seeing from suppliers,” Nick said. “While my hope is this will be short-lived, only time will tell as there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel just yet. “Seltzers and alternative beverages seem to have hit a peak as more and more brands and styles have created a muddled market. “I anticipate seeing consumers return to their tried and true style favorites as they decide to spend wisely on something that they have confidence in as opposed to taking a flyer on something

thoughts from more local brewery professionals next week. Breaking News: According to a recent press release, Molson Coors Beverage Company just announced that it will cease operations of the Saint Archer brewery and remove Saint Archer brands from the retail marketplace. The company is in agreement to sell the Miramar brewery and taproom to Kings & Convicts Brewing Company. You’ll remember they are the Chicago-based company that purchased the Ballast Point Brewing brand in December of 2019. According to Paul Verdu, vice president of Tenth and Blake, the craft division of Molson Coors, “The Saint

Archer team has built a distinct brand that has a very loyal following in Southern California. Unfortunately, the overall business has struggled to grow despite investing significant resources behind its production and commercialization.” At this time, Kings & Convicts intends to retain all the current operations and tasting room team members at both locations.

Marines launch Iron Fist exercise By Staff

CAMP PENDLETON — The U.S. Marine Corps and Navy are participating in the 16th iteration of Exercise Iron Fist 22 with the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force from Jan. 10 to Feb. 16 in Southern California. Iron Fist is an annual exercise designed to increase interoperability and strengthen the alliance among the Marine Corps, Navy and the Japan force. The allied forces will plan to and seize notional objectives through real-world amphibious training. During the five-week exercise, the forces will also focus on advanced marksmanship, amphibious reconnaissance, fire and maneuver assaults, logistics and medical sup-

like vintage bottlings, Mirabelle is blended with previous vintages adding depth resulting in palate richness and aromatic complexity.” Mostly 2017 (81%) and a combination of chardonnay (57%) and pinot noir (43%) with orange and peach on the nose with peach, apple, and vanilla on the palate, it was a great start to the dinner. For the second course, guests enjoyed Oyster Rockefeller with the 2018 Schramsberg Brut Rose. The Brut was pinot noir (62%) and chardonnay (38%) created from different blocks fermented separately from multiple

JAN. 14, 2022 growers resulting in rich diversity. The strawberry and cherry palate from the pinot with hints of rose and good acidity well completed the Oyster Rockefeller. Initially, the Davies planted their estate vineyards to the traditional Method Champenoise grape varieties in 1965. However, over time it became apparent that this land was better suited to the cultivation of red Bordeaux varietals such as cabernet sauvignon. This was the impetus for the creation of J Davies still red wines. The J Davies 2017 cabernet sauvignon was paired in the main course featuring Chef Hilario’s Beef Wellington. The 2017 cab was

sourced from a collection of Napa Valley vineyards including Atlas Peak, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena, Diamond and Howell Mtns, and Calistoga resulting in complexity, especially with the 2017 vintage. The 2017 fruit benefitted from a cool fall that allowed long hang time for perfect ripeness and was awarded a Wine Enthusiast 94-point score. Guests also enjoyed the J Davies 2018 pinot noir paired with wrapped jumbo shrimp and pancetta, as well as crème brulee alongside NV Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs.

JAN. 14, 2022

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your batteries should be fully recharged by now, making you more than eager to get back into the swing of things full time. Try to stay focused so that you don’t dissipate your energies. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re eager to charge straight ahead into your new responsibilities. But you’ll have to paw the ground a little longer, until a surprise complication is worked out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Rival factions are pressuring you to take a stand favoring one side or the other. But this isn’t the time to play judge. Bow out as gracefully as possible, without committing yourself to any position. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Reassure a longtime, trusted confidante that you appreciate his or her words of advice. But at this time, you need to act on what you perceive to be your own sense of self-interest. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You need to let your warm Leonine heart fire up that new relationship if you hope to see it move from the “just friends” level to one that will be as romantic as you could hope for. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There’s still time to repair a misunderstanding with an honest explanation and a heartfelt apology. The sooner you do, the sooner you can get on with other matters.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect a temporary setback as you progress toward your goal. Use this time to re-examine your plans and see where you might need to make some significant changes. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Some missteps are revealed as the cause of current problems in a personal or professional partnership. Make the necessary adjustments and then move on. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Jupiter’s influence helps you work through a pesky problem, allowing your naturally jovial attitude to re-emerge stronger than ever. Enjoy your success. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Set aside your usual reluctance to change, and consider reassessing your financial situation so that you can build on its strengths and minimize its weaknesses. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Some recently acquired information helps open up a dark part of the past. Resolve to put what you’ve learned to good use. Travel plans continue to be favored. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Act on your own keen instincts. Your strong Piscean backbone will support you as someone attempts to pressure you into a decision you’re not ready to make. BORN THIS WEEK: You embody a love for traditional values combined with an appreciation of what’s new and challenging. © 2022 King Features Synd., Inc.
