Vista High probe finds misconduct

Panthers football team to get new coaching staff

VISTA — Vista Unified School District leaders notified the community Friday that an independent investigation into the Vista High School football program found a pattern of misconduct among a small number of team members and that a new coaching staff will be in place.

District leaders launched the months-long investigation in September of 2022 after an incident in the school’s locker room drew widespread outrage from the community.

A video of the alleged incident, which occurred in late August, showed students in the locker room forcibly carrying a 14-year-old victim into a separate area where he was forced to the ground and surrounded, with students saying “rape him” in the background.

While officials with the school district and San Diego County Sheriff’s Department stated soon after that they determined that a sexual assault did not occur, district officials said it was clear that the victim had suffered “physical and emotional assault.”

An investigation, led by an unnamed outside investigator, into the culture of the football program continued for over three months, with several athletes and students

Greek church wins approval for 61 senior apartments

— The Encinitas Planning Commission approved a Greek orthodox church’s proposal to build another senior apartment complex on its property along Manchester Avenue.

The Saint Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church Senior Apartments project will add 61 units — 49 market-rate and 12 low income — split into two separate buildings. The apartments will be located on the same parcel as the church and its existing 30 senior apartments.

Nine of the affordable units will remain affordable permanently, while the remaining three will be deed restricted as affordable for 55 years.

As a by-right, density bonus project, the church could have applied for up to 81 units, but only proposed 61. The church also requested a waiver to reduce the parking standards

to half-a-space per unit, offering only 31 parking spaces instead of 74 base parking requirements.

Additionally, the applicant requested an incentive allowing them rather to relocate some utilities rather than underground them.

Commissioners unanimously approved the proj-

ect 4-0, except for Kevin Doyle, who recused himself due to a conflict of interest.

Some concerns about the project from residents included traffic issues and environmental impacts.

Former Mayor Sheila Cameron feared the impact on the local wildlife, noting trees in the project area are potentially home

SDGE begins Phase 2 undergrounding

DEL MAR — San Diego Gas & Electric Company has commenced the second phase of its ongoing reconfiguration project in Del Mar, continuing its efforts to convert overhead lines along major roads underground.

Phase 2 is targeting around three-fourths of a mile of overhead distribution lines along San Dieguito Drive and Racetrack View Drive, as well as power lines along a section of Sorrento Valley Road near Peñasquitos Creek.

Crews will move these lines underground, and remove five existing wooden poles.

This stage of work is expected to last through May or June, said SDG&E Senior Project Outreach Manager Jennifer Ramp, advancing a project that aims to make the electric system more reliable, improve visual aesthetics in the community, and enhance natural areas like San Dieguito Lagoon, Los Penasquitos Lagoon and Torrey Pines Natural Reserve. “I think it’s going to

have enormous environmental benefits for these communities,” Ramp said.

Crews finished work on the first phase back in November, installing a new section of underground power lines and removing around 700 feet of overhead power lines. Two steel poles were also installed at the east end of the Del Mar Horsepark property.

The third phase, set to begin in the fall, will include the removal of six miles of overhead transmission lines and 35 transmission poles.

The lines start at the Del Mar substation on Via de la Valle and extend south on Jimmy Durante Boulevard, across the San Dieguito Lagoon to Racetrack View Drive, then parallel Interstate 5 to the Torrey Pines State National Reserve and the Los Penasquitos Lagoon, ending at Sorrento Valley Road.

This phase is delayed until after the end of the bird nesting season in September, and is planned to last through the end of the year, providing that there are no further delays in the process.

Average county gas price rises

By City News Service

REGION — The average price of a gallon of selfserve regular gasoline in San Diego County recorded its largest increase since Dec. 31 on Wednesday, rising 1.8 cents to $4.571.

The average price has risen five consecutive days, increasing 3.4 cents, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

It is 2.6 cents more than one week ago and 12.5 cents higher than one month ago, but 4.9 cents less than one year ago.

The average price has dropped $1.864 since rising to a record $6.435 on Oct. 5.

“Southern California drivers are seeing pump prices increase because of some unplanned refinery issues in Northern California, as well as increasing crude oil prices,’’ said Doug Shupe of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

“Also, we are heading toward the time of year when California drivers start to see pump price increases due to refinery maintenance season and the ramp-up to producing the more expensive ‘summer blend’ of gasoline, which is required to be sold starting April 1, but usually arrives in gas stations well before that.”

to over 100 bird species. Although the project will cut down about 13 trees, the developer plans to replant even more and won’t cut down the mature pine trees on the property.

Larry Pell, a resident of the existing senior apartment homes owned by the church, was concerned about how the road con-

nected within the different segments of the overall property and traffic flow into and out of the property. Pell suggested that a traffic signal be constructed as part of the project.

The project already proposes to extend the raised median along Manchester Avenue and construct a southbound right turn deceleration lane at the project driveway, along with other curb, gutter and streetscape improvements in the area.

Even though the commission had little discretion to force any significant changes to the by-right density bonus project, most of the commissioners liked what the church – famous for its annual Greek festival – had proposed.

Commissioner Susan Sherod appreciated that the project proposes 75% native landscaping instead of the required 50%. Though she initially had some concerns about

the project cutting down certain trees, particularly crape myrtle trees which are great for birds, she was satisfied to find out that more crape myrtle trees will be planted elsewhere on site.

“There’s just a lot to like,” Sherod said.

Commissioner Chris Ryan also liked the project, though she noted she would like more blue accents to provide breaks between the all-white Greek architectural design that intends to match the church.

Commissioner Steve Dalton also liked the project.

“I really like that they’ve gone above and beyond what they’re required to do,” Dalton said.

Though in the end he voted for approval, Commissioner Bob Prendergast was disappointed by the number of affordable units proposed, instead preferring to make all of the units affordable.

Construction during Phase 2 will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and will include trenching, installing underground vaults and cables and distribution poles, and paving, SDG&E said in a recent notice to customers. Traffic delays and temporary lane closures are anticipated throughout construction.

SDG&E’s reconfiguration project is unrelated to the city of Del Mar's separate utility undergrounding project, which recently completed its first phase at Tewa and 10th street and will also include work near Crest Canyon and along South Stratford Court.

Utility execs might pay for negligent decisions

Until a short time ago, top executives of California’s privately owned utility companies had nothing personal to fear from any decision they made, even if it cost dozens of human lives.

That’s how it went when Pacific Gas & Electric Co. officials neglected to maintain gas pipelines adequately in the San Francisco suburb of San Bruno, which led to an explosion that killed eight persons in 2010.

And when PG&E executives neglected to trim vegetation near power lines, causing a manslaughter conviction for the company when almost 100 died in fires during 2017 and 2018.

Don’t fall victim: How to ID an unscrupulous contractor

Are you thinking about having work done on your home that will cost more than $500 in labor and materials?

If so, you should take precautions before hiring a contractor.

Any person providing home improvements or repairs above the $500 handyman exception is required to have a state issued license from the Contractors State License Board (CSLB).

The District Attorney’s Office prosecutes criminal violations of the contractors’ laws including unlicensed contractors, unauthorized use of someone else’s license number, requesting more than a 10% deposit, failure to have workers’ compensation insurance and even theft for failing to deliver services or materials that were paid for by the homeowner. These crimes are especially common when it comes to installing solar panels, building accessory dwelling units — commonly referred to as granny flats — or building swimming pools.

A pool is a wonderful addition to a Southern California property but be wary of phony contractors. Unscrupulous pool builders have been prosecuted for taking large cash payments upfront, digging a gigantic hole and then abandoning the project.

The homeowner is left without the pool they dreamed of and paid for nor the funds to finish what the crook started.

Here are some tips to help you be a savvy consumer and keep your homeowner dreams alive:

• Check out the contractor’s license on the CSLB’s webpage. Is the license active? If it is in a suspended status, stop and find some-

one else.

• When hiring a contractor without a license you take on the responsibility and risk as an owner-builder.

• Does the contractor have a business card? Does the name of the person you are dealing with match the name associated with that license number?

• Check the personnel list on the license for additional qualified employees. Is the address of the construction business local?

employees, check to see if there is an active workers’ compensation policy on file with the state under the contractor’s license number.

• If you hire someone without active workers’ compensation, you may be responsible for any injuries that happen on your property.

• Licensed contractors are required to have a minimum $25,000 surety bond.

• Legitimate contractors should not ask for more

And when negligent corporate decisions caused billions of dollars in damage over the last 15 years in areas served by Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric.

But notice has now been served: Corporate utility executives whose decisions cost lives and burn homes and other buildings may eventually be forced to pay, and not mere nickels and dimes.

The hope is this will lead to more responsible decision making by the companies, but that remains to be seen. For sure, the new climate may become much more cautious, causing inconvenient public safety power shutoffs in fire-prone areas when weather turns hot and extremely dry.

Those are some implications of a $117 settlement reached in a lawsuit late last fall against 20 former PG&E officers and directors.

• If there is a discrepancy between the business card, invoice, contract and the CSLB’s webpage, call the business number listed on the CSLB page to confirm all parties are known to each other.

• A con artist will frequently use a name similar to a reputable construction firm and sometimes the unlicensed individual is former employee of the reputable firm.

• Check references. In San Diego you can also check the San Diego Superior Court filings for past civil and criminal cases.

• If the individual has no online presence, then that is also a possible red flag. Is it a new company, joint venture or new license? If so, ask how much experience the contractor has with your plans.

• Always get a minimum of three bids for any job. If the quote is too good to be true, ask why.

• Will the contractor be working alone or have employees? If there are

than a 10% deposit upfront.

Although this may seem like quite a bit of effort up front, it will save you time, money and heartache. Victims of unscrupulous contractors rarely recoup their financial losses from the criminals and always wish they had spent more time researching their contractor.

These crimes are not rare in California; the CSLB even maintains a “Most Wanted” list. If you suspect you have been the victim of construction fraud or an unlicensed contractor, report it to the CSLB by phone at 800-321-CSLB (2752) or online at www.cslb.ca.gov.

As your District Attorney, I’m committed to increasing communication and accessibility between the DA’s Office and the public in order to keep you safe.

I hope these consumer and public safety tips have been helpful.

Summer Stephan is the District Attorney of San Diego County.

eral government agencies with outstanding claims against PG&E, a pittance compared with the trust’s total funding.

But lawyer Frank Pitre, a trust board member who led the lawsuit, said the “vast majority” of federal claims are now satisfied, so the trust “is close” to being able to use proceeds from future lawsuits against other utility officials to benefit fire victims.

This represents a huge change in lines of responsibility.

Over the last 10 years, utility companies have been convicted of or “taken responsibility” for many billions of dollars in wildfire damage, but even now, not one of their executives has served a day in jail — even when their choices caused multiple deaths.

Now, at least, some executives have actually had to pay for their misdeeds. Also until recently, utilities charged customers for maintenance, but actually used for that purpose only a tiny part of the $65 billion they’d collected since the mid-1950s for that purpose. Most went toward executive bonuses and other optional expenses.

The suit was filed by the Fire Victims Trust, which received $13.5 billion from PG&E and its bankers when the utility evaded bankruptcy after the North Bay, Camp and other fires burned thousands of acres in Northern California between 2015 and 2018.

All were ignited by arcing power lines that set ablaze untrimmed, dry plants and trees.

The deliberate pace of the victims’ trust in distributing funds has drawn criticism from many fire victims forced to fend for themselves after losing their homes, often moving in with relatives or being otherwise compelled to leave their blackened home areas.

As of last Sept. 30, the trust says, it had passed out more than $5 billion to victims, including more than $300 million each in August and September.

Because of a ruling by the federal bankruptcy court that helped set up the trust, the newest cash from utility decision-makers must be used to pay off fed-

Utilities have long paid fines when they caused fires, but recouped the money soon after in their next round of rate increases granted by the ever utility-friendly state Public Utilities Commission.

The new lawsuit settlement does not make way for others to sue right now. It was based on a claim by PG&E against its own highest former officials (including two former CEOs and its top electric managers).

A bankruptcy judge handed that claim to the trust, which quickly sued the individuals. Most fire victims not involved in the trust probably won’t be able to sue, said Pitre, the Burlingame-based lead lawyer for the trust, because of an expired three-year statute of limitations from the dates of fatal decisions.

But the climate of the utility world has changed. From now on, utility executives will know they are watched and that their corporations won’t protect them, may in fact sue them.

This could lead to improved decisions. For potential financial ruin figures to become a major motivator among utility executives. Email Thomas Elias at

Cannabis distributor approved for operations in business park

— A locally owned cannabis distribution company received final approval from the Oceanside City Council to operate within the Oceanside Gateway Business Park alongside a separate cannabis company.

The company, Herb Girl, Inc., will operate in the northern portion of an existing building located at 129 Ord Way off Oceanside Boulevard. Left Coast, a cannabis manufacturing and distribution facility, has been operating in the building’s southern portion since 2020.

Mark and Linzie Campbell, father-daughter

owners of Herb Girl, have owned the building since 2009. Left Coast is currently a tenant of the building.

Since cannabis is considered a regulated use, the city code requires buffer zones between such businesses – which also includes tattoo shops, liquor stores, smoke shops and massage parlors – and residential districts, churches, schools and other sensitive sites.

A proposed business can apply for location waivers from the city along with its conditional use permit to operate within the city.

In addition to a conditional use permit, a cannabis facility must also have local and state licenses to

operate.

Herb Girl applied for a location waiver due to its proximity to its neighboring cannabis facility as well as its less than 1,000 feet distance from a church, massage parlor and residential district.

Staff asserted that despite the proximity to these conflicting uses, the sensitive ones were separated by other physical barriers like the fenced off Sprinter tracks that block the residential district or Oceanside Boulevard blocking the church.

There is also a restriction in place that prevents Herb Girl from operating on Sundays when the nearby

church attendance is high.

Neither Left Coast nor Herb Girl offer storefront opportunities for the public, which means neither business attracts any foot traffic and would not create an “adult entertainment area” according to Dane Thompson, a planner with the city.

The Planning Commission recommended the City Council’s approval of Herb Girl in October 2022.

Born and raised in Oceanside, Linzie Campbell said she had a dream to make a women-owned cannabis facility become a reality.

California legislators push TikTok ban

Bill prohibits high-risk apps on state devices

REGION — A bipartisan push by federal and state officials nationwide has put TikTok and other social media apps in the crosshairs due to mounting cybersecurity and data theft concerns.

In California, state Sens. Brian Jones (R-San Diego) and Bill Dodd (D-Napa) announced Jan. 11 they have co-authored Senate Bill 74 to ban high-risk apps from state devices, including TikTok, a short-form video-sharing app that exploded in popularity during the pandemic.

Nearly 50% of all TikTok users are under the age of 34.

However, the app is also owned by ByteDance, a Chinese company based in Singapore, which international governments have accused of using the app to spy on and steal users' data.

The Associated Press reported a bipartisan concern in Washington, D.C., about the Chinese government potentially using its authority to “seize American user data or try to push pro-China narratives or misinformation.”

Currently, 26 states have enacted bans or taken action against TikTok on state devices. According to the Sacramento Bee, President Joe Biden also banned most federal employees from having TikTok on their government-issued phones.

“It’s just common sense — protecting cybersecurity is a bipartisan issue,” said Jones, the senate minority leader. “We deactivated my TikTok account and the California Senate Republican Caucus’s TikTok account. Until security officials, data, and conclusive evidence show that the Chinese government is not spying on us and using our data, we will not give the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) an opportunity to weaponize our accounts.”

According to Fox News, in order to avoid the sweep -

ing U.S. bans, TikTok has reportedly offered to increase its transparency by granting U.S. officials oversight of its algorithms as part of a $1.5 billion reorganization of its U.S. operations.

Regardless, top national security officials in the Biden Administration are sounding the alarm about TikTok and ByteDance.

Under Chinese law,

According to a statement from Dodd, the California legislature and state government is facing “unprecedented attacks on information security.”

According to Dodd, the California Office of Emergency Services recently announced a cybersecurity

eral properties throughout Oceanside, also said the duo kept the business going in honor of Linzie’s mother who was also involved in the family business before she died in 2019.

According to the younger Campbell, the business intends to donate 1% of its earnings to local charities starting with the Women’s Resource Center.

“At Herb Girl, our mission is to offer safe, tested and regulated cannabis products from a licensed and compliant source,” Linzie Campbell said.

Herb Girl received unanimous approval from Council.

While several local

cannabis advocates spoke in favor of the new business, Program Manager Erica Leary of the North Coastal Prevention Coalition reminded the City Council that there is still work to be done to prevent marijuana usage amongst children.

“No one is advocating for youth access,” said Oceanside resident and cannabis advocate Amber Newman in response to Leary’s position.

Councilmember Ryan Keim confirmed with the Campbells that they would not be advertising marijuana products to children, which he felt Left Coast was guilty of when he previously denied their operation.

As reported by CalMatters, Sen. Tom Umberg, a Democrat from Garden Grove and chairperson of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said while the bill is a good idea, it needs full review.

State Sen. Bill Dodd (D-Napa) proposing a TikTok ban on state-owned devices

ByteDance must make the app’s data available to the Chinese Communist Party. Security officials note that the app could use algorithms to influence and track users and collect data for espionage purposes.

Kate Sanchez (R-Temecula) also introduced Assembly Bill 227, which applies to social media apps owned by companies headquartered in “countries of concern,” according to the

incident in the state Department of Finance.

Technology news outlets reported a global ransomware group was behind the intrusion and claimed to have stolen 76 gigabytes of data.

“Social media apps are ubiquitous in our daily lives, but there is growing concerned about information theft and data collection that comes with their use,” Dodd said. “Prohib -

Escondido OKs N. Iris condo plan

— In a few years, a vacant lot along North Iris Lane will be home to a new 102-unit condominium development.

The North Iris Condominiums will take over 7.7 acres of five parcels along North Iris Lane at the corner of Robin Hill Lane, a private dirt road that connects several residents in the semi-rural area to Centre City Parkway. The city of Escondido previously annexed the parcels from the county in 2020.

After the Escondido City Council’s approval, the city also changed the zoning of the land to house up to 18 dwelling units per acre. However, the proposed project would only have 14.6 dwelling units per acre.

The condos will include two- to four-bedroom units built in groups of four to six homes across 21 buildings on each site. While most of the project has two stories, some three-story sections are closer to the development’s central areas. The condominiums will be for sale to residents.

There will be 230 parking spaces with dedicated two-car garages and 27 guest parking spaces.

The Planning Commission approved the project and its environmental impact report in December. According to staff, all of the mitigation measures are adequate, the project won’t conflict with adjacent land uses, and the space is suitable for such a project.

Still, some locals who live nearby are concerned about the traffic issues the project could exacerbate.

Audrey Brouwer, who lives along North Iris, requested another traffic study be conducted. Brouwer said the developer’s traffic analysis occurred during the pandemic when more people were at home rather than commuting to work or school.

She also noted that North Iris is a primary cut-through road from the neighborhoods and new developments near Rincon Middle School to Centre City Parkway to the freeways.

“If we add more cars from this development, we’re going to add traffic,” Brouwer said. Brouwer was also concerned about the safety of senior citizens exiting the back gate of Meadowbrook Village Christian Retirement Community, which sits almost directly across the street from the new development.

Small plane crashes at Carlsbad beach

Steve

CARLSBAD — A small plane with three passengers made an emergency crash landing on Thursday morning at a Carlsbad beach after reporting engine problems.

According to media reports, a Piper PA-28 single-engine aircraft crashed at approximately 7:45 a.m. onto the shoreline below the bluff at the Poinsettia Lane entrance of South Carlsbad State Beach. The Carlsbad Fire Department and paramedics responded to assess

the surviving individuals onboard the Piper Cherokee.

No injuries were reported, and none of the passengers were taken to the hospital.

Carlsbad Fire Department Chief Mike Calderwood told the San Diego Union-Tribune the three passengers were “very lucky,” adding: “There was some skill involved with the pilot.”

According to Flight Aware, the plane’s owner is Christopher J. Sluka of San

Diego, but it remains unclear who was onboard the aircraft at the time of the emergency landing.

Shortly after, California State Parks and U.S. Coast Guard officials arrived on the scene to discuss the logistics of removing the plane from the shore.

Due to the high tide, waves began to crash against the defunct plane, causing damage to both wings, including tearing a portion of the left wing entirely from the plane.

According to flight

tracking data, the plane departed from Montgomery Field in San Diego at approximately 7:31 a.m., heading toward John Wayne Airport in Orange County when the pilot reported engine problems.

The aircraft performed an emergency landing at 7:44 a.m. after traveling 24 miles in 13 minutes.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board officials are investigating the incident along with California State Parks.

REGION

The San Diego Humane Society on Tuesday unveiled a tool that pet owners can use to reunite with their lost pets faster.

The Lost2Found tool is a cell phone text program that provides automated texts with step-bystep instructions to help people search for their missing loved ones.

Last year, the SDHS took in nearly 19,000 stray pets and only 22% of them were reunited with their families, officials said. One in three pets will become lost at some point during their lives, according to the SDHS.

The tool is a one-way communication system that texts tips and support at strategic intervals and provides resources. Pet owners are sent 28 messages over a 60-day time period, including a comprehensive list of tools and helpful tips.

The information directs owners to San Diego Humane Society’s website, online groups and partner organizations.

If your pet goes missing, text “LOST” to 858-SAN-LOST (7265678) to start using the Lost2Found platform. You can also view stray pets who have come in to the SDHS facility, and find more useful tip at sdhumane.org/found.

Fairgrounds projects healthy budget for next year

DEL MAR — The Del Mar Fairgrounds has crafted a cautiously optimistic budget for the upcoming year following higher-than-expected revenues in 2022 and the addition of income streams, including a new concert venue and the full return of the Del Mar Horsepark.

During a Jan. 11 presentation to the 22nd District Agricultural Association, the state board managing the Fairgrounds, CEO Carlene Moore said the organization is in a “strong financial position,” with financial analysis indicating that 2022 revenues were $23 million higher than budgeted as of November.

“From where we had forecasted to be to where we turned out to be, is almost miles apart,” Moore said.

Revenues were expected to be higher in 2022 than in previous years with the full return of the fair, which had not taken place since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The difference in anticipated and actual revenue was primarily caused by the unexpected transition to an independent midway, where multiple companies operate games and rides.

The midway was briefly in jeopardy in the months

leading up to the 2022 fair after a judge issued an injunction preventing the fair from proceeding with their selected midway operator, Ray Cammack Shows, in a lawsuit that alleged bid-rigging in the request for proposals process.

However, a court agreement allowed the midway to continue with multiple operators, which led to a revenue difference of around $14.5 million for the fairgrounds.

This time, the fairgrounds are budgeting for an independent midway at

the 2023 fair, which runs from June 7 to July 4.

“The 2022 budget did not imagine an independent midway for 2022. That is also part of what drives revenue and expenses higher,” Moore said.

Over the upcoming year, the 22nd DAA is projecting just over $76.5 million in gross revenue in its operating budget, including $49 million from the fair, compared to just under $56 million in gross operating expenses, not including personnel costs.

Leaders at the 22nd

DAA said they considered several factors when creating the budget, including several plans to increase revenues in the coming years. These include the Horsepark’s planned return to full operations in July, increased rates for facility rentals, and the opening of a new music venue, The Sound, with 50 scheduled shows for the year.

The Horsepark, a 65acre site at the corner of El Camino Real and Via de la Valle, has been closed since 2020 due to water quality concerns.

According to financial statements, the Sound is conservatively projected to bring in $1.5 million in gross operating revenue that the fairgrounds did not have last year.

Paquin Entertainment will also operate Beyond King Tut: An Immersive Experience at the fairgrounds seven days a week beginning Jan. 27 and running early May.

Alongside positive factors, the 22nd DAA also has to plan for 2023 without the $20 million in pandemic-related grants that provided some padding over the past two years.

According to finance director Michael Sadegh, ongoing inflation and the

risk of a recession continue to be a concern for the fairgrounds’ budget.

This is especially concerning since the 22nd DAA’s significant revenue only comes from three of the 12 months of the year — June and July when the fair is operating, and January, when additional revenues add up.

“If the inflation factor goes up 3%, our costs go up by $2.1 million, which would wipe out all the excess cash profit we have for 2023,” Sadegh said. “There are three months out of the 12 months that we are in positive territory. The rest, we are in red; we are in a deficit. What this is kind of highlighting is the enormous amount of risk we are carrying by having one very profitable program during the year, and that's the fair for 21 [or] 22 days.”

While the fairgrounds have been primarily focused on cost-cutting since the pandemic hit, Moore said they have now hit a saturation point and will need to pivot to raising rates as costs continue to grow.

Annually, Moore added, the fairgrounds should contribute between five and six million dollars toward capital improvements to maintain facilities and grounds properly.

Del Mar takes another shot at short-term rentals

City extends ban on new rentals

two more years

bearance similar to the original moratorium, allowing all rentals operating before the April 2016 moratorium to continue without restrictions but forbidding the operation of any new rentals.

Other constituents support the restriction of shortterm rentals, arguing that they pose a nuisance to permanent residents.

DEL MAR

— After nearly seven years of confusion and controversy over the viability of short-term rentals in Del Mar, city officials have started crafting a new ordinance to regulate their operation while also extending a ban on new rentals for another two years.

The establishment of new short-term rentals — those rented out for less than 30 consecutive days — has been banned in Del Mar since 2016, when the city established a moratorium out of concern about their rising numbers throughout the city.

In 2017, city officials implemented an ordinance allowing short-term rentals to operate without limit in the city’s commercial zones but requiring those in nearly all residential zones to operate a minimum of seven days at a time and no more than 28 days per year.

However, this ordinance never went into effect after failing to obtain unconditional approval from the California Coastal Commission, which argued that the regulations were too restrictive.

City officials say efforts to create a new ordinance were delayed by subsequent court cases and the COVID-19 pandemic, but they are now ready to begin working on a new law that will hopefully pass muster with the state commission.

“We have been coordinating with [the] Coastal Commission throughout this process, so they understand exactly where we are in our work plan, and they’re supportive,” Principal Planner Amanda Lee said at the City Council’s Monday meeting.

Since the first ordinance failed, short-term rental activities have been under an enforcement for-

While originally intended to be in place temporarily until an ordinance could be approved, this forbearance has been extended multiple times. The city council approved the most recent twoyear extension on Monday, stretching the ban on new rentals into early 2025.

City officials said they hope this will give them enough time to craft an ordinance and associated Local Coastal Program amendment, which will need to be approved by the planning commission and city council before going to the coastal commission.

“We may be finished with this process before the end of the forbearance period. That’s clearly the goal here, to get this done as soon as possible,” said City Manager Ashley Jones. “Also, we don’t have control of the process once it leaves the city’s portion of the process and goes to [the] coastal commission … this will give us plenty of time to go through that process.”

Lee said that the city had contracted a consultant to collect data on local shortterm rentals through June, and findings will be presented to the council later in the year.

During the meeting, residents shared many of the same concerns they had been repeating for years — that the forbearance illegally and unfairly restricts short-term rentals and that the time for new regulations is long overdue.

“You’ve had your forbearance/moratorium in place for seven years, yet you have not produced any evidence that it’s a necessary item that we need to put over our property owners. I think it's an overreach by the city council to continue to take property rights away from new owners,” said resident Gina Mattern.

“I am so happy we don’t have short-term rentals where I live because it is a living nightmare,” said resident Camilla Rang. “People, especially young people, come and they party and I need to go to work in the morning. There has to be a solution, but the solution cannot be to have short-term rentals in all of Del Mar.”

Regardless of differing opinions, the city found itself embroiled in litigation related to the ban on new short-term rentals and its 2017 declaration that these rentals are not permitted in the city’s residential areas.

A 2017 lawsuit filed by a coalition of homeowners opposed to the ruling argued that the city effectively decided a new land use by making this decision, which requires CEQA review. Residents also argued that the decision ignored the city’s long history of operating vacation rentals and their economic tourism benefits.

The lawsuit ultimately resulted in no penalties to the city.

Del Mar officials also took legal action against the Coastal Commission in 2018 after the state body rejected their proposed ordinance. The petition, which sought clarification from the courts regarding who has land-use authority in the city, was ultimately dismissed.

Most neighboring cities in San Diego County allow short-term rentals without limits on the number of days they can be operated and also impose a transient occupancy tax. Some residents hope the city will consider that option in the future.

“Currently, these grandfathered-in short-term rentals are not being taxed, and I think the city is missing out on a lot of money, millions of dollars, every year from not doing so,” said Jessica Solano of local shortterm rental company Vacation Rentals by Kimberly.

Korean War fighter pilot, 97, awarded Navy Cross

Staff and wire reports

SAN DIEGO — A retired U.S. Navy aviator from Escondido, who survived and prevailed in perhaps the longest aerial dogfight between a lone American fighter pilot and enemy combatants in history, was awarded the Navy Cross for his actions in the Korean War during a Jan. 20 ceremony at the San Diego Air and Space Museum.

Retired Navy Capt. E. Royce Williams, 97, a member of the San Dieguito American Legion Post 416 in Encinitas, received the U.S. Navy’s second-highest military decoration on Friday from Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro in front of hundreds of local veterans, admirals, generals and Justice Elena Kagan.

The award was the result of a steadfast nationwide campaign spearheaded by Williams’ fellow members at Post 416, including Past Commander Steve Lewandowski.

Lewandowski launched Operation Just Reward, a nationwide effort to get Williams a Medal of Honor, which caught the attention of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Temecula) and others who helped ensure the Korean War veteran’s feats were fully recognized and honored.

Upon reviewing Williams’ story, Del Toro used his authority to upgrade his Silver Star Medal, first

awarded in 1953, to a Navy Cross based on his “extraordinary” actions.

“Among the many cases I have reviewed, Capt. Williams’ case stood out,” Del Toro said on Friday. “It was very clear to me that his actions were extraordinary, and more closely aligned with the criteria describing a higher award. And sir, what a tremendous honor it was to tell you in person, that after all these years, your courageous actions

would finally get the recognition they deserve.”

Williams, who retired from the Navy as a captain in the mid-1970s, was on combat air patrol in a single-seat F9F Panther fighter jet, flying with three other squadron mates deployed from a carrier anchored in the Sea of Japan, on Nov. 18, 1952, when the Americans encountered seven Soviet MiG-15s at higher altitude along the Yalu River.

According to accounts

of the mission retold in books and other media, the men were ordered by their commander to retreat to the carrier and establish a protective screen.

Three of the pilots succeeded, but Williams soon discovered he had been boxed in by the Soviet fighters.

Williams was forced to engage the MiGs as they swarmed him, culminating in a half-hour of gut-wrenching maneuvers to avoid be-

ing shot down while trying to take out the Russian pilots trying to kill him.

“I was engaged mentally at the time,” Williams recently told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “A lot of it was awareness of where they were and how I had to maneuver to avoid them. They were taking turns. I decided if I concentrated on shooting them down, then I’d become an easy target. So my initial goal was to look for defensive opportunities when they made mistakes.”

Williams blasted four out of the sky and likely scored hits on two others, whose pilots never returned to their base in Vladivostik, according to the book “Red Devils Over the Yalu.”

Williams said he ran out of ammunition and made a bee line for his ship, evading the seventh MiG pilot by diving in and out of clouds for cover. He landed uneventfully, but later counted more than 250 machine gun holes in his F9F.

“He also survived a 37-millimeter round to his fuselage, where six inches to the right or left would have meant certain death,” Issa said. “This was an act of indomitable courage and the demonstration of the highest skill under incalculable duress.”

Williams was told to clam up about the dogfight for fear of causing negative

publicity for the Soviets, who weren’t officially involved in the Korean War.

According to one account, President Dwight Eisenhower personally directed that the incident remain under wraps. It was not officially acknowledged until the fall of the Iron Curtain, and the ensuing release of Soviet archives in the 1990s, which detailed the air battle.

“In the moment I was a fighter pilot doing my job…I was only shooting what I had,” said Williams in a previous account of the fight. “They had me cold on maneuverability and acceleration – the MiG was vastly superior on those counts to the F9F. The only thing I could do was out-turn them.”

Out-manned and piloting what was considered an inferior aircraft to the MiG15, Williams engaged the enemy for 35 minutes, shooting down four of them in the longest dogfight in U.S. military history. Additionally, no other American fighter pilot has ever shot down four MiG-15s in one fight.

The Navy Cross is only awarded to service members who distinguish themselves for extraordinary heroism in combat with an armed enemy force.

Williams retired from the Navy in 1980, and his medals include the Navy Cross and two Distinguished Flying Crosses.

Unemployment drops below 3% countywide

County’s unemployment rate decreased to 2.9% in December, down from a revised 3.3% in November, according to the figures released Jan. 20 by the state Employment Development Department.

December’s unemployment rate was less than December 2021’s rate of 4.1%.

Last month’s rates compare with an unadjusted unemployment rate of 3.7% for California and 3.3% for the nation during the same period.

interviewed during the process before an update was shared Friday.

“The outcome of the investigation indicated a pattern of inappropriate and unacceptable behavior occurring among a small number of football players,” Superintendent Matt Doyle said. “While we are not able to publicly discuss details regarding discipline, I assure our community that consequences have been and are currently being imposed on a number of student athletes

in accordance with district policies, CIF regulations, and the law.”

Doyle’s office did not immediately respond to inquiries from The Coast News regarding the specific actions discovered in the investigation.

Back in September, two students believed to be the perpetrators in the locker room incident were restricted from participating in football activities but permitted to continue attending school.

Vista High School’s varsity head football coach Dave Bottom was placed on

administrative leave early in the investigation, and a freshman coach was let go.

In his Friday statement, Doyle also confirmed that the district would be “restructuring the VHS football coaching staff” and starting the recruitment process for new coaches in the coming weeks.

Circulation of the video and initial news of the incident caused days of disruption in the district, including students protesting outside the district office, after-school activities being canceled as well as the football program forfeiting a se-

ries of games in September.

According to Doyle, the district implemented a series of programs and training immediately after the incident was brought to their attention to “change the culture” of the football program.

These efforts included an athletics and sportsmanship workshop, a guest speaker to address culture and expectations, implicit bias training for student-athletes and coaches, and engaging all football players in restorative circles with experts from the National Conflict Resolution Center.

According to the EDD, between September and October, nonfarm employment increased by 5,400, from 1,542,800 to 1,548,200. Agricultural employment decreased by 700, from 9,100 to 8,400.

Trade, transportation, and utilities, construction and professional and business services were the three leaders in monthover jobs added, with 1,700 new positions each.

Additionally, education and health services gained 1,100, government 500 and manufacturing added 200 jobs. Employment in financial activities, information, mining and logging remained unchanged.

Other services lost 800 from the payrolls, followed

by leisure and hospitality with 700 lost jobs.

Between December 2021 and December 2022, nonfarm employment increased by 50,500 — a gain of 3.4%.

Agricultural employment increased by 400, from 8,000 to 8,400.

Leisure and hospitality rose by 18,100 jobs, the most significant increase over the year.

Accommodation and food services — a gain of 14,100 — accounted for around 78% of the rise.

Other gainers include professional and business service with 9,000, educational and health services with 8,900, government with 8,800, construction with 5,800, other services with 2,400 and information with 300 jobs added.

Employment in mining and logging remained constant at 300.

Year-over employment losses occurred in trade, transportation and utilities — down 1,100 — financial activities with 900 and manufacturing with 800 lost jobs.

New vehicle details in fatal Encinitas hit-run

ENCINITAS — The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has offered additional information about the vehicle involved in a fatal hit-andrun in Encinitas on New Year’s Day after unsuccessful attempts to identify a suspect.

Nearly three weeks have passed since a vehicle, described as a black Chrysler or Dodge minivan, struck two individuals crossing Encinitas Boulevard at Coast Highway 101 just past 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 1.

The vehicle did not stop to check on the victims following the collision and fled toward B Street.

Carmel Valley resident David D’Lima, 23, was killed in the collision, while a female victim suffered minor injuries.

With no arrests made, sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday released an image of the suspected model of the car and a photo of the left side rear view

mirror that was left at the scene of the hit-and-run.

The vehicle was also formerly described by deputies as having damage to the front driver’s side.

Last week, deputies said they had also reviewed available camera footage near the scene, but that much of it had been obscured by the rain falling that night.

There was no traffic camera at the intersection where the collision occurred.

Anyone with information about the incident or a potential suspect is urged to contact the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station at 760-966-3500 or the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department at 858-565-5200.

Crime Stoppers has offered a $1,000 reward for any information that could help lead to an arrest in the case.

Crime Stoppers can be contacted anonymously via their tip line at 888580-8477 or online at sdcrimestoppers.org.

Two arrested, 28 firearms, drugs seized in police search

By City News Service

ENCINITAS — A 25-year-old man called police because he said he found several dead people in his Encinitas apartment.

There were no dead people in the residence, however police arrested two people and seized weapons and drugs because of the call, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department reported this month.

Around 11 a.m. on Jan. 9, deputies responded to the apartment where Ryan Lander, 25, lived to conduct a welfare check. No dead people were found, but law enforcement found multiple illegal firearms in plain view, according to the department.

A search warrant for Lander’s apartment was served, and detectivesseized 28 firearms, four firearm suppressors, metal knuckles, body armor, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, according to authorities.

NCTD approves housing at transit stations

Homes slated at Poinsettia, Village locations

The North County Transit District board of directors approved two exclusive negotiation agreements with developers to construct hundreds of residences at the Carlsbad Village and Poinsettia transit stations.

The board approved the item during its Jan. 19 meeting awarding the agreement to West Village Partners for the Carlsbad Village and Raintree Partners for the Poinsettia transit stations.

at a maximum of four stories and 35 units per acre.

As for Poinsettia, the project will include at least five bus bays, replace 341 parking spaces, a maximum 35-foot height limit, and 30 units per acre.

The West Village Partners development would include 17,000 square feet of retail, 80,000 square feet of office space, active pathways, a greenbelt and a 110room boutique hotel.

The project includes 184 market rate and 50 affordable units, 407 parking spaces for commercial uses, a renovated transit station and a guaranteed base lease revenue capped at $2 million.

playground, greenspace and a separate parking structure with 298 spaces for residents and visitors.

Construction for the Village would begin in 2025, and Poinsettia would start in 2027, according to NCTD Clerk Suheil Rodriguez.

“Being able to have more density next to transit is a win-win,” said Vista Councilmember Corinna Contreras.

Tracey Foster, chief development officer at NCTD, said the agency’s push for development stems from three priorities — increasing transit ridership, fiscal responsibility and community integration.

arms were in violation of state and federal firearms laws, police reported.

Lander was booked into the Vista Detention Facility for being under the influence of a narcotic while in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearms silencer, according to authorities.

As the investigation progressed, detectives discovered the firearms were owned by Lander’s 32-year-old roommate, Luc Suter, according to the department.

On Thursday, Suter was arrested and booked in the Vista Detention Facility for possession of methamphetamines, narcotics addict in possession of a firearm, possession of illegal firearms, possession of a firearm suppressor and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation, is urged to call the Sheriff’s Department at 858-565-5200.

The 30-month deal allows the parties to negotiate business terms, provide design and environmental documentation, entitle the project and for the developers to conduct property due diligence.

The Village location has 11.33 acres of its 14.37 acres ready for development. Poinsettia will see 4.87 acres developed, according to the staff report. Both will be mixed-use projects.

The Village location has 11.33 acres of its 14.37 acres ready for development and Poinsettia will see 4.87 acres developed in the mixed-use projects, according to the staff report.

The Poinsettia project will have 17% restricted as affordable housing and 27% of residences in the Village development will be designated affordable.

“They look like high-quality projects,” said Encinitas Councilmember Kelly Hinze. “One of our goals is to have quiet zones for our communities. We want this to be a desirable place to live. I hope we can come to a consensus.”

The Village project will replace 435 parking spaces

At Poinsettia, the lease revenues are estimated at $125,000 per year with a 2.5% increase per year, a 345-stall parking garage, new ticketing and bike amenities, connection to the Coastal Rail Trail, rideshare drop-off, 5,000-square feet of retail and dining amenities.

Raintree also proposes 146 market-rate and 31 affordable units, a dog park,

According to Foster, the transit projects would reduce the reliance on private vehicles for those residents, which would help the agency reach its sustainability goals.

As for the lease, NCTD expects to enter into a longterm agreement between 50-99 years, providing a long-term revenue stream for the agency.

“Redevelopment proj-

ects are expected to generate value by maximizing ground lease revenues while also minimizing risk to NCTD,” she said. “As we progress with redevelopment opportunities, NCTD seeks to create projects compatible with surrounding communities.”

According to NCTD, the Village station sees a weekday average of 800 riders — 600 on the Coaster and 200 on the Breeze (bus).

The Poinsettia station has an average ridership of 400 on the Coaster and 40 on the Breeze.

Additionally, NCTD staffers said the new project must accommodate the construction of the Carlsbad Village Trench Project, which is moving roughly one mile of track below grade and includes double tracking.

Trenching has long been a goal of the state, county and San Diego Association of Governments to expand the LOSSAN (Los Angeles-San Luis Obispo-San Diego) corridor, the second busiest rail line in the country.

small talk

Enjoy one from the archives

Bob Seger, back in 1979, said it for me.

“Just take those old records off the shelf. I’ll sit and listen to ’em by myself ...”

In a shameful burst of self-indulgence, I came home not long ago with a gift from my husband. He had no previous knowledge of his generosity.

I haven’t, in all our years of marriage, ever taken such liberties before, but it was the only way I could justify my new toy and, bless him, he didn’t even flinch.

Yes, he bought me a record player and I’m tickled pink about it.

I had come very close to selling, or worse, simply giving away our stack of long-playing record albums that have been boxed in the closet since my old turntable died around 1985.

Somehow I never went through with it, and now I am gleefully working my way through the music that colored my youth.

Some of the collection, belonging to my older-but-wiser husband, even predates me, but it is clear we were meant for each other, as our tastes began to overlap somewhere in the ’60s. The collection includes the Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, Odetta, Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins.

Anyway, I am systematically reliving my youth and driving my children out of the room with those and a host of other albums that include Beatles, Rolling Stones, John Denver, Rod Stewart, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Simon & Garfunkel and the sound track from “Hair.”

Out of the pandemic and ‘Into the Woods’

My dear, ingenuous husband, being a pragmatist and ever unaware of our budget, did gently suggest we ought to simply replace all 60 of these albums with the compact discs, as the sound would be better. Well, of course we should and of course it would, but unless we win the lottery, that isn’t going to happen.

It probably wouldn’t happen anyway, because I don’t want to play these albums all the time. I’m in the thick of it now, but taking a stroll down memory lane can be mentally trying for us sentimentalists. The occasional look back is quite enough.

Besides, it seems ever-so-fitting that the sound track of my checkered past should have a few skips and scratches in it.

This musical exercise has tweaked my perspective. I fell in love with my record player’s lovely, cherrywood exterior and the fact that it also included a CD player, tape player and radio.

I was so overcome by the basic package, I failed to notice that every time you turn it off, it clears your chosen radio station. It will only take one CD at a time and, most distressing of all, only one record album at a time.

I had been away too long to realize it was void of the tall spindle and the ability to drop down a stack of records one by one. This means that every 18 to 20 minutes you have to go change the record. We have all become used to far less musical upkeep. Maybe it was all meant to remind me that these are the good, old days. But who can deny it is wonderfully sweet to sometimes sway through yesterday’s beat.

Pet of the Week

Mushu is pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 1½-year-old, 60-pound, female, Siberian husky/ shepherd mix.

Mushu and her littermates were abandoned in a box beside a freeway. Mushi was adopted, then returned after nine months. She needs lots of activity.

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

SAN MARCOS — For actress Sage Taylor, a San Marcos resident, Ovation Theatre’s production of “Into the Woods” this month will mark her first time back on stage since the start of the pandemic — this time in her dream role as the witch.

“It's my first time being in a show in three years, so this is my first show in a long time,” she describes. “This is my dream role, and I just love the music and the story and it's just everything I could ever want in a role for my first show back.”

A senior in high school, Taylor placed in the top three in the 2022 Broadway San Diego Awards where coincidentally she sang as the witch for the closing Stephen Sondheim medley just a few months before being cast in Ovation’s production.

“It's just a cool full-circle moment and something

San Marcos unveils renovated Jack’s Pond Nature Center

SAN MARCOS

— San Marcos residents saw new life breathed into the little red barn at Jack’s Pond Park this week as the city unveiled the renovated nature center with nine newly-designed immersive classrooms focused on the city’s flora and fauna.

A beloved destination for families and school field trips, the nature center is the jewel of the 23-acre Jack’s Pond Park off La Moree Road in San Marcos, offering hands-on activities for elementary-aged youth.

After being closed for most of the past three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the center’s grand reopening was celebrated Wednesday by city leaders, dozens of families and members of Friends of San Marcos, a nonprofit supporting local parks that donated $6,000 toward the project.

Those funds were used to spruce up the various nature-themed classrooms, many of which had become outdated, and transition them to be more specific to San Marcos.

The room themes now include freshwater life, nocturnal animals, trails, insects, reptiles, birds, local history, and conservation, with another cozy room for reading.

“I think every single one of these rooms is symbolic of something that we as residents are passionate about in this city,” said Friends of San Marcos director Lauren King.

After the ribbon was cut, eager kids of all ages explored the new rooms. Pelts waited to be touched in the nocturnal animal’s room, recordings of different bird cries could be heard, and poles could be used for “fishing” in the freshwater room.

Several residents had come to the center in the years before the renovations and were impressed with the changes.

“We were excited to hear they were gonna renovate it,” said Malynda Clair, who attended the reopening with her daughter Mila. “It’s super exciting to see San Marcos grow and

develop — I love it.”

One city employee, in particular, was at the core of the center’s redesign, taking it on as a passion

project. Recreation leader Erin Rimmereid has spent countless hours at the barn in Jack’s Pond Park, working part-time at the nature

center before transitioning to a full-time role overseeing the site and leading field trips.

Rimmereid planned

garlands to almost all the painted murals.

She also spearheaded making the conservation room entirely out of recycled materials.

“It’s been a really fun experience. I’m an environmental studies major, so I’m really passionate about the environment,” Rimmereid said. “We wanted to make it an immersive experience.”

She also played a significant role in securing funding from the Friends of San Marcos, which had previously provided funding for first graders at Title 1 schools to attend field trips at the center.

“Erin came to our board and said, ‘I’d like to do some upgrades,’ and that helped us make the decision. She brought her ideas to us, and we said, ‘You know what, you’re right,’ because it had been a long time since it had been upgraded,” recalled President Kathryn Gray. “It was an easy thing to say yes to.”

Once the Friends agreed to provide funding, things took off, and the nature center was able to purchase what Rimmereid hadn’t been able to make on her own — the “manipulatives,” or hands-on activities for each room, as well as decor like new rugs.

“We’ve been working on it for about four years. We got the grant about a year ago, and that’s when things kicked into gear. Before that, we were working with what we had, but when the friends came in … that’s when all the big changes came in,” Rimmereid said, looking around the new, colorful center now crowded with families.

“It’s really cool to see this many people here; I’ve never seen it like this.”

The Jack’s Pond Nature Center is at 986 La Moree Road. The nature center is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and it is run entirely by volunteers. Field trips are also offered every Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon, with more information available at san-marcos.net/ play/jack-s-pond-naturecenter.

One of sports’ coolest trophies awaits Farmers winner

Surfboards for decades.

“Craig has done our shaping for a long time and what he makes is super beautiful,” said Josh Hansen, who runs the iconic North County surf shop bearing his name. “I know he’s super stoked to do it.”

Omni tees up course renovation

Resort readies for NCAA host duties

The Farmers Insurance Open golfer with the fewest strokes will be stoked with his prizes, which include a fresh surfboard.

Some of the world’s best golfers will aim for a first place finish that earns them that a $1.5 million check, a memento depicting a Torrey pine and a board to hang 10.

If there’s a more unique trophy in golf, or all sports, we haven’t seen it.

“It’s pretty cool to know that Tiger Woods has one of my surfboards,” Craig Hollingsworth said.

Hollingsworth, an Encinitas resident, shapes the boards that go to the FIO champion. He’s among the world’s best in his trade, crafting boards for Hansen

The folks with the FIO are ecstatic to present the surfboard, which is only eclipsed by the golfer’s joy in claiming it.

“We’re super blessed to be part of the tournament,” said Hansen, who resides in Carlsbad. “It’s a big event in San Diego.”

True that, but in 2012 it was a big event minus a significant sponsor.

Buick tapped out from its participation and when Farmers signed on, there wasn’t enough time to construct a trophy with its name on it.

So the Century Club of San Diego, which oversees the annual tournament, turned to one of the most well-known stores in North County surfing circles, Hansen’s. Josh’s dad, Don, opened the store more than 60 years ago and it has only flourished with surfing becoming more mainstream.

Still, the tournament was up a creek without a paddle.

Century Club members Tom Wornham, a surfer, and Tom Monson put their heads together. They wanted a trophy that drew attention to what makes San Diego famous.

With fish tacos and the view of the I-5 and I-805 crush at rush hour not really being considered, they landed on a surfboard.

“Tom Monson approached us because he

knew the shop and said he would like to have a surfboard built for the winner because it would make it unique to San Diego,” Hansen said. “Surfing is such a part of the fabric of the community.”

So Hollingsworth was summoned and he got busy doing his thing. Well, when he wasn’t doing his other thing, which was surfing.

“People ask me how long it takes to shape the board, because each one is new,” Hansen said. “I always say, ‘It depends on how big the waves are because if they’re big, it can take a little longer because everyone is out surfing.’”

It’s about a two-month process to get the board ready for its close-up, according to Hollingsworth. The length of it is a shade under 8 feet and it weighs 8-10 pounds.

Hollingsworth has been shaping boards for nearly 50 years, for pros and promotions. But few of his endeavors match the joy he has, and that he sees in others, when his handiwork is presented to the winner.

“Stuff like that is fun to do,” Hollingsworth said.

BOARD

“And the Farmers one is kind of a feather in my cap.”

Scott Stallings, a past winner, has his hanging prominently in his home workout room. Bubba Watson, another FIO title-holder, wanted to plop his in the water and wake board on it behind his boat.

“His wife put the kibosh on that,” Hansen said.

But it’s full speed

ahead with tournament week upon us, it runs from Wednesday-Saturday, with a beloved Hansen’s surfboard at the ready.

“Everybody has that connection to surfing, even if you’re not a surfer,” said Hansen, who’s as likely to be on a golf course as in the ocean. “As a golfer coming to San Diego, you are playing right above Black’s Beach, which has great waves. To have the surfboard as the trophy is just really cool.”

But first a golfer has to get hot over four days to earn it. His reward is gnarly, and it arrives through the efforts of Hansen and Hollingsworth.

CARLSBAD —

The upgrades continue at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa with its newest project breaking ground on Jan. 20: the renovation of its famed Champions Course as it prepares to host three consecutive NCAA Division I women’s and men’s golf championships beginning in May 2024.

The renovation and ensuing NCAA championships mark the beginning of a new chapter at one of the country’s most iconic golf resorts. Work on the golf course, one of two at the resort, will be led by Hanse Golf Course Design, founded by architect Gil Hanse, who recently designed Fields Ranch East at the soonto-open Omni PGA Frisco Resort in Frisco, Texas.

“We are excited to officially kick off this work with Gil Hanse, Jim Wagner and the rest of their team,” said Kurt Alexander, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We believe that the Champions Course will be one of the marquee courses available to the public in Southern California after this renovation and is another example of Omni’s commitment to elevating the experience across our golf portfolio nationwide.”

Alexander also thanked retired Carlsbad mayor Matt Hall, Mayor Keith Blackburn and other city officials for their roles in getting the project started.

Hanse and team will implement significant design changes with the NCAA’s match-play format in mind — chief among them will be designs that challenge players with more risk-reward decisions throughout their rounds.

Further inspiration for the work will be drawn from classic Southern California courses, as aesthetics are tweaked to give the Champions Course a more proper sense of scale and place.

Predicting road sweep in Sunday’s title games

Bengals know what they have to do and will do it.

Pick: CINCINNATI

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP • San Francisco 49ers (15-4) at Philadelphia Eagles (15-3), noon, Fox.

Line: Eagles -2.5; Total 45.5

The NFL playoffs are down to four teams vying to be crowned Super Bowl 57 champion on Feb. 12 in Glendale, Arizona. Let’s see how they match up:

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP

• Cincinnati Bengals (14-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (15-3), 3:30 p.m., CBS. Line: Chiefs -1.5; Total 47.5

The Bengals are cagey. Not to mention hot. They’ve won 10 in a row and haven’t lost since Halloween in Cleveland.

The Bengals are the defending AFC champs and are a dangerous football team with a Heisman Trophy-winning QB in Joe Burrow.

The Bengals seemingly have it all. They’re deep at wide receiver, have speed, run the ball with power and back it up with a tight defense.

The only weakness is their offense line; Burrow has been sacked more than most QBs this season and line play might have cost Cincy last year’s Super Bowl versus the Rams. Burrow is their leader and all have bought in. His comment, “Expect the Bengals to be here every year,” rings true.

As for the Chiefs, when you have a smart and talented QB the likes of Patrick Mahomes, you always have a chance and usually will win more than lose.

Mahomes is the front runner for MVP and hasn’t disappointed. The Chiefs got a scare Saturday versus Jacksonville when Mahomes injured his ankle in the first half. He returned to lead KC into Sunday’s AFC championship.

But the Chiefs to me are in and out; the Chargers had them beat twice this year until Brandon Staley forgot how to coach.

The Chiefs’ defense is suspect and has big holes. More importantly, the Chiefs allow teams to stay close.

But when you have Superman behind center, it covers a lot of mistakes.

Analysis: I think this will be a great game. The edge goes to the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals will win because they have more key players at key positions than the Chiefs.

Burrow has been incredible and spot on. The

The Eagles started the season at 8-0 and coasted the rest of the way. The Eagles are hard hitting, balanced and have few weaknesses. QB Jalen Hurts has been sensational.

If the Eagles have a weak spot, few teams this season have found it.

No question these are the two best teams in the NFC and, you could argue, the NFL. They added WR AJ Brown with a trade from Tennessee before the season and haven’t missed a beat since.

The Eagles were dominant against the division rival Giants on Saturday, beating them quick and often in a 38-7 victory.

The 49ers are the hottest team in the NFL, winning their 12th in a row on Sunday; their most recent loss came at the hands of Chiefs on Oct. 23.

The 49ers lost QBs Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo this season and had to turn to Brock Purdy, the last player taken in the 2022 NFL draft.

They call that pick Mr. Irrelevant, but Purdy has been anything but.

He stepped in and managed the explosive 49ers offense quite nicely. 49ers GM (and Torrey Pines High School grad)

John Lynch traded for Christian McCaffrey midseason to add another dimension to Kyle Shanahan’s offense, joining explosive WR Deebo Samuel and one of the league’s best tight ends, George Kittle.

The 49ers defense is as good as I’ve seen in a long time. Reminds me of the great Steelers defense in the ’70s.

Analysis: This is a true toss-up. I favor the 49ers, however, for their defense.

This will be the 49ers’ third NFC Championship in the last four years, with no Super Bowl rings to show for it.

Lynch has put his best team on the field and should be rewarded for his tremendous work.

Pick: SAN FRANCISCO

Join us on the radio for Race and Sports Radio at 9 a.m. on Saturday mornings at The Mightier 1090 AM ESPN Radio.

planned include the creation of a drivable par-4 on the 11th hole, a repositioned green on the par-3 16th hole reminiscent of Augusta National’s 12th hole and a reachable par-5 on No. 18 with its putting surface brought closer to the existing creek.

The course will play as a par-72 and have the flexibility to play from 4,300 to 7,500 yards to accommodate players of all skill levels.

Other considerations in this project are environmental in nature. For example, transitioning irrigation lines will continue to use reclaimed water, removing man-made ponds and reintroducing natural barrancas composed of drought-tolerant and native species.

“The setting and surrounds of the Champions Course lend themselves to a golf experience that looks and feels authentic to Southern California,” Hanse said. “Our design work will bring a bit more simplicity and elegance to course aesthetics. This will be accompanied by a strategic focus balancing enjoyment for everyday play by members and resort guests, with shot-making requirements that test the best of collegiate golf.”

The plan is for the the golf course work at Omni La Costa to be joined in the coming months by a project focused on reimagining the resort’s golf practice facility. This project will be led by Beau Welling and his firm, Beau Welling Design. The focus will be on elevating the practice experience with a newly lengthened driving range and expanded short game area.

Like the golf course project, the practice range upgrades would incorporate a new state-of-the-art irrigation system to allow the facility to maintain efficient usage of water for sustainability considerations while still exhibiting the highest maintenance standards.

From 1969 to 1998, the resort was a stop on the PGA Tour under a variety of names, including Tournament of Champions and Mercedes Championships. The event moved to Hawaii

in 1999.

“Omni La Costa was the site of victories by a ‘who’s who’ of all-time golf champions, such as Gary Player, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, and we look forward to welcoming the next generation of greats to play on the Champions Course,"

said Randy Zupanski, managing director at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

The Champions Course renovation is the latest step in the resort’s planned evolution. The first phase in 2021 included a design refresh of the lobby and adjacent Bar Traza, and culminated in the unveil-

ing of the Costa de la Luna ballroom, increasing the resort's total meeting space to over 100,000 square feet.

Later this year, the resort is undergoing a complete renovation of The Spa, guest rooms and suites. Additional phases will be announced and rolled out over the next several months.

Encinitas Chamber CHATTER

Meet Cyndi Darlington, President & Founder, Darlington Marketing & Encinitas Chamber Economic Development Committee Member

San Diego na-

tive Cyndi Darlington is a former Encinitas Chamber of Commerce Board member and a current member of the Economic Development Committee. It’s Cyndi’s passion for small business that make her an amazing asset to the Chamber and Economic Development Committee.

When working at several big corporate ad agencies she noticed a distinct lack of resources to help small businesses move forward. So in 2010 Cyndi started Darlington Marketing with the primary goal of helping small businesses succeed. As she says, “We also work with larger companies, but our mission is really to provide resources for small companies, primarily in the restaurant, grocery and food service industries. Food people have an amazing passion, but often need assistance on the business side of the equation.”

“I love working with the Chamber to help our local businesses. It can be tough in a place like Encinitas, where rents are high and red tape can be

prevalent. The goal of our Committee is to work closely with the City to make that process easier.”

“Not only do we want to keep our businesses informed of changes and updates to any policies they’ll need to know, we ad-

vocate on their behalf to streamline things, as well as letting them weigh in collectively on important issues. One example is the El Camino Real Specific Plan being worked on currently. Our Committee is attending meetings and soliciting feedback

from our Chamber businesses about how these changes might affect them, and what they’d like to see.”

“We also hope to work with the City on Economic Development planning in hopes to help bring new business here. Oceanside is a great example of a city that has really transformed the whole culture of the city with a strong economic development plan.”

“Small business is the heart of any thriving community, and it also gives opportunities to underrepresented groups. As an Encinitas resident who loves our town, it’s important to me to be a part of a thriving business community.”

As far as Cyndi’s perfect day in Encinitas, “I’d start the day with hot yoga at Asteya, coffee at Gordy’s Bakery, a walk on the beach at Beacon’s, then meet my husband for Poke at Lazy Acres for lunch, go shopping on the 101 or head to the dog park at Encinitas Community Park with our two insane labs.”

Other comments supported the project and past work from the developer, Hallmark Communities, Inc.

Jim Simmons, an Es -

condido resident and land use consultant who has previously worked with Hallmark, praised the developer for its work.

“They build a really good product, and they do a good job,” Simmons said. “This project meets or exceeds all requirements… As a resident and consultant, this is one of the best projects we’ve seen, and we’d like you to approve it.”

Students at Cedar Cove Academy, a TK-4th grade charter school program in Encinitas, CA believe in the power of kindness and annually participate in the Great Kindness Challenge (GKC). The GKC began in 2011 with three pilot schools in Carlsbad, CA and it is sponsored by Kids for Peace, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. According to their website (https://thegreatkind-

“I’m very committed to serving the community,” Blackwell said.

"What started organically as a neighborhood group of kids wanting to make our world a better place, has grown into an interconnected network of young peacebuilders worldwide."

This year, the GKC is from January 23-27th and the theme is #KindnessGrows. At Cedar Cove Academy, students participate in this important movement by completing up to 50 random acts of KINDNESS using the GKC Checklist.

Additionally, the Cedar Cove Academy staff have planned a week of spirit days, classroom

mini-lessons, and learning activities! According to Principal Hillary Gaddis, "We hope these activities will encourage our children to think about the world around them and develop compassion and a desire to help those in need."

JCS-Cedar Cove is a public charter school serving families with two programs--TK-12 Home Study and TK-4 Academy (hybrid) in Encinitas.

JCS-Cedar Cove is currently enrolling new students in both programs and in all grade levels. Learn more at cedarcove.jcs-inc.org or by calling (760) 230-2870.

training gets a boost

— With an additional $1 million from the federal government, MiraCosta College Technology Career Institute can help more students afford to join their workforce skills training programs.

Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) secured $1 million for TCI’s accelerated skillsbased training programs in the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill passed by Congress in December.

“When we invest in STEM education and workforce training, we invest in our community,” Levin said during a news conference announcing the funding at TCI on Jan. 20.

The additional funds will create more handson training courses, such as virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, robotics and automation.

“This will help us roll out new programs that industries have asked for and reduce tuition for students across the board,” said Linda Kurokawa, director of Community Education and Workforce Development at MiraCosta College.

With this funding, TCI can reduce tuition that usually runs between $1,500 and $7,500 down to about $1,000. The money will also help students access child care through a partnership with TOOTRiS, a San Diego-based company that provides resources on finding child care.

“We want to get women back into the STEM fields,” Kurokawa said of the TOOTRiS partnership, adding that the program has experienced a drop in its female students since the COVID-19 pandemic struck due to lack of child care options.

TCI also recently received state funding with the help of Assemblywoman Tasha Boerner Horvath, who secured $3.5 million in funding for a pilot paid internship program for TCI students.

Kurokawa said that the funding would be used to pay students as interns with companies right after graduation, which could lead to jobs down the road.

“It’s been amazing to have state and federal support,” Kurokawa said. “Our tax dollars here are well spent.”

TCI opened its doors at 2075 Las Palmas Drive in 2015 in partnership with MiraCosta, the city of Carlsbad and a $3 million grant from the US Department of Labor. TCI programs are usually completed by students within a semester.

TCI has partnered with over 150 companies in the San Diego region to build a talent pipeline for growing businesses in transportation, biotechnology and communications.

One of those partners is Creative Electron, a San Marcos-based company that manufactures X-ray inspection systems used in quality assurance for medical devices, aerospace, automotive and military industries.

“We feed the TCI program with the resources needed to allow it to educate relevant professionals, and in return we get a highly qualified workforce ready to produce day one,” Creative Electron CEO Bill Cardoso said at the Jan. 20 announcement.

For alumna Adriana Gonzalez, TCI changed her life.

Gonzalez, a single mother, previously struggled to make money to feed her children. After studying at TCI, Gonzalez now has an engineering job with a growing company.

“I wish I had this program a long time ago,” she said. “I wouldn’t have been used and abused in other jobs that don’t pay well.”

Levin said he was moved by Gonzalez’s story. Beyond her journey as a single mother, she is also a “Dreamer,” which refers to people brought illegally to the United States as children.

Levin promised to continue to bring more education funding to the 49th District.

The TCI program was one of 15 local projects that received funds from the nearly $50 million that Levin secured for the district from the most recent omnibus bill.

SAN MARCOS — The former principal of Mission Hills High School will remain on leave until June 30, at which time his employment will end, San Marcos Unified School District officials announced this week.

Cliff Mitchell, who became principal in 2020, was placed on leave after administrators became aware of a “reported matter” in late September, with a subsequent investigation taking place over the following months.

On Tuesday, Superintendent Andy Johnsen informed the community that Mitchell would not be returning and that acting principal Nathan Baker, formerly the school’s assistant principal, will be the

new permanent principal.

“We have since completed our investigation, and I want to share with you that Mr. Mitchell will not be returning to Mission Hills,” Johnsen said in a statement. “While I understand it is natural to want as many details as possible, please understand that personnel matters are

confidential, and we cannot share additional information.”

District officials have stated that the reported situation did not appear to involve harm to a student. District spokesperson Amy Ventetuolo said law enforcement was not involved at any point in the matter.

Baker has served as acting principal since Mitchell’s placement on leave in October and will be the permanent principal of Mission Hills beginning Feb. 1. He

has worked 10 years at Mission Hills.

The school’s acting assistant principal Tina Hernandez, who has worked as an English Language coordinator and teacher on special assignments, will fill the role vacated by Baker beginning the same day.

“We are excited about the school and believe that with this leadership stability, MHHS is positioned for continued success now and into the future,” Johnsen said.

Victor Magalhaes, owner of Vittorio’s Italian Trattoria in San Diego’s Highland Village, hosted a celebratory Champagne and sparking wine dinner to close out his 2022 Wine Dinner series.

As usual, Magalhaes had a full crowd with his loyal and dedicated guests. As my colleague Frank referred to a few months ago in a Vittorio’s dinner recap,

“Magalhaes has created a cult-like following of repeat guests.”

I agree! Each month, guests look forward to his monthly wine dinners,

which are typically held on the last Thursday of each month. There are several reasons for their popularity. One is the very affordable and consistent $75 price. Guests can enjoy five-course meals that include dessert and at least four wines over dinner. On a few occasions, guests spilled into the restaurant, so it is always key to RSVP early.

Many guests come with groups of friends that

they already know or met over time at Vittorio’s. This makes the great food even more enjoyable. During this dinner, guest and friend of Taste of Wine, Margarite Triemstra, was celebrating her birthday.

Additionally for most dinners, Republic National Distributing's Emily Moody, account manager, and Maddie Bloom, sales rep, narrate the pairings, hold several raffles for wines served throughout dinner and other extras, and offer discounted pricing on wines served at dinner.

Both Moody and Bloom were on hand sharing stories for the bubble’s extravaganza dinner.

Dinner launched with a Pierre Sparr Cremant d’Alsace Brut Rose Pinot Noir paired with smoked salmon rillettes and crème fraiche. Pierre Sparr, located in Alsace, France near Champagne, benefits from nine generations of family-owned winemakers dating back to the 1600s. In World War II, their vineyards were demolished.

The family’s commitment was to come back and be better than before with new plantings.

Being a fan of both macaroni and cheese and Schramsberg sparkling

wines, I was excited to see this pairing on the menu, which was my favorite combination of the evening. The macaroni and cheese was infused with truffle oil and had five cheeses – Parmagiano, Reggiano, Pecorino, mozzarella, and aged cheddar.

This baked delicacy was so remarkably good that it was deserving of the Schramsberg, which is the preferred sparkling wine served today at the White House for formal occasions.

This tradition began in 1972 when President Nixon chose it for the China Peace treaties vs. French-produced champagne and sparkling wine.

The 2018 Schramsberg

North Coast Blanc de Noirs translates to white from black as the fruit is red pinot noir fruit sourced from Sonoma vineyards combined with pinot noir fruit from Carneros and Anderson Valley producing fruit forward aroma and palette. The nose and flavor of peach and apple was simpatico with the richness of the truffle oil and five cheese dish.

The third course was Chicken Roulade with goat cheese and spinach topped with green peppercorn sauce over a carrot puree. This was served with Villa

Sandi Prosecco Di Treviso

Il Fresco Brut hailing from Italy’s Northeast Veneto region in the Prosecco area, specifically in Treviso with 100% Glera fruit. Its stainless-steel fermentation created a fresh, bright, and dry palate.

The jumbo scallop was plated with a creamy lemon-butter champagne sauce, then a parsnip cake, before being crowned with the scallop. This was paired with Piper-Heidsieck 1785 Champagne Brut, founded in 1785, hence the number in the title.

Since sourced from Champagne, France, it can officially carry the title of Champagne. The 50% pinot noir, 30% pinot munier, 20% chardonnay blend had green apple and pear on the palate with citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit on the nose.

This was impressive for a non-vintage champagne and a great partner with the scallop dish. Dinner concluded with chocolates. Hats off to Victor and his team including servers Daniel and Lee, along with Emily and Maddie from RNDC who always make Vittorio’s wine dinners special!

There has been much lamenting in this column over the past 10 years regarding the drastic changes that have taken place along Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas.

Downtown Encinitas has become almost unrecognizable compared to the quiet beach town I landed in 23 years ago. And I’m sure the change is even more glaring for longtime locals.

When I saw “Gucci” on the awning of a sunglass store recently, I gave up on that stretch, ever regaining the sleepy charm it once had.

Do those retailers think Gucci represents this area? Who knows, maybe it’s just me stuck in the past. Thank goodness for the remaining old-school joints in downtown Encinitas like Raul’s Shack, La Paloma Theater, The Saloon, Queen Eileen, Kim’s Alterations and a handful of others.

For a spell, I took solace in the fact that the funk was alive and well up the road in Leucadia, except for the quickly maturing culinary scene, but I welcomed that. The new dining options were a welcome addition as they were interspersed with old standbys like A Little Moore Café and Chinatown, two of my favorite family-owned joints that kept it real and old-school without an ounce of pretension.

Well, folks, as you may have heard by now, both of these establishments will be closing soon. Chinatown at the end of February and A Little Moore in March. I should add that O’Hurley’s Beach Bar, Leucadia Barbershop and Paw Purrrection will be closing along with A Little Moore as they are taking out the entire corner of Coast Highway 101 and Diana Street.

All to make way for a slick new marijuana dispensary. It was the decision

of the property owner/landlord to take away the livelihood of the small business owners that make up the essence and charm of Leucadia for a dispensary that would probably be more appropriately located in a light industrial, less residential area.

Don’t get me wrong — I’m all for the legalization and taxation of marijuana, but not at the expense of small business owners.

A Little Moore is beloved by locals and tourists alike, and if you doubt that, I invite you to stop in while you can on a busy Saturday morning and try to deny that good vibe. It began as Mary’s Café in the late 1960s and has been owned by the Han family for the past 30 years.

The big bummer is that owner Mr. Han, a U.S. Army veteran, will never have the opportunity to sell the business he has worked so hard to build up during that time. Instead, a Rancho Santa Fe landlord, who has no emotional connection to these small businesses, pulled the plug on that dream and decided it was time to cash out at the Han family’s expense.

For my complete take

on this beautiful slice of Leucadia, check out my 2015 Coast News column here. Ironically, I expressed concern about the changes happening, hoping they would not impact my favorite diner.

A similar scenario is playing out across the railroad tracks where a developer intent on “upgrading” the center anchored by 7-Eleven has displaced Chinatown.

Frank Guan, owner of Chinatown for over 20 years, also owns Chinatown Express in Oceanside, so fortunately, he has a fallback. It was formerly called Chinese Dragon and has been around since 1990.

As I wrote in my 2016

column: “I’ve always enjoyed the fact that it’s a great mix of regular folks populating the booths and bar at Chinatown. Nothing against all the beautiful people that seem to dominate at coastal North County restaurants, but it’s just a nice change of pace.

About the restaurant's unique Chinese and Italian food combination: “I’ve always chuckled to myself when I pass Chinatown — Chinese and Italian Cuisine — wondering who is ordering Italian food from a Chinese restaurant and how did this combination happen?

Then I remember that

No raining on Burgeon’s parade

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor…well, it was just rain. A lot of it. But there’s no stopping the Burgeon Beer Company in Carlsbad from having a good time. And beer with good friends always works as a party starter.

Burgeon held its 6th-anniversary invitational party on Jan. 14, inviting 36 other breweries and 1000 guests to participate. The brewery did not invite the rain, but it came anyway. Upon entry, each guest was greeted with a custom Burgeon Beer umbrella, a collectors’ glass, and a thrilling view of all the great beer awaiting.

Breweries from all across the country made their ways to Carlsbad, probably expecting warm sun and to wear tank tops and shorts. No amount of rain, however, dampened the spirits of the attendees. The exceptional selection of beer made sure that even the wettest, chilliest participant had a glass of good cheer to lift their spirits and brighten their day.

Matthew Zirpolo, co-founder of Burgeon, explained the vision behind the invitational: “We like to showcase how truly special our craft beer community is. We feel incredibly fortunate to have such an amazing community supporting us.”

“We always cross our fingers for wonderful weather, but the rain brought main-character energy, novelty and memorability,” said Mackenzie Kline, Burgeon’s marketing director.

Burgeon brewed two beers for the day, which Anthony Tallman, co-founder and head brewer described: “The first is a good ‘ol clean American lager with a sweeter malt character and dry finish (American Gold) and the second is a lighter West Coast IPA where we dialed back the malt and let the hops shine (Subliminal Sync).”

There were no shortages of silver linings considering the people and beer at the event. It was truly a Who’s Who of craft. Outside the longest lines were for Moksa Brewing from Rocklin, California and Great Notion from Portland. Great Notion was serving one of its many IPAs (So Wrong It’s Ripe).

But it was Moksa that shook things up with a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout treated with vanilla, coconut and coffee. Aged for 17 months in an Old Rip Van Winkle barrel, Watch ‘Em All Flock was a viscous, slightly sweet delight. And at 13.4 % ABU it warmed me too. Moksa also offered Sunset Punch, a sangria inspired Imperial Wine-Beer Hybrid that at least one local wine drinker found to be their favorite of the day (an assumption based on the number of re-

turn trips).

From the central coast, Liquid Gravity tap room manager Celeste Gough was serving Crispy Life pilsner, one of the many exceptional lagers available.True to the Burgeon collaborative spirit, Gough– in need of a hand– was being helped by the owner and head brewer of Ghost Town Brewing, Ryan Nosek and Justin Burdt, respectively.

Tony Lawrence, founder and head brewer at Boneyard Brewing in Bend, Oregon was enjoying the chance to return to Carls-

bad. In recognition of the occasion, he served Notorious Triple IPA, the Boneyard 1st Anniversary beer first brewed in 2011.

“I always try to leave a craft fest event like this inspired…and San Diego beers always have what I’m looking for!” says Lawrence. “And the Burgeon 80s playlist is rocking!”

One of my favorite beers of the day was Cherry Riot, a sour brown ale with cherries brewed by Casa Agria Specialty Ales in Oxnard.

Eric Drew, head brewer

and co-owner of Casa Agria was quick to point out, “the Burgeon staff is the best, we look forward to their anniversary every year. Everyone is stoked to be here, nobody is letting the rain bring them down.”

I was surprised on a day so cold and wet that another favorite beer was an American light lager brewed by Highland Park Brewing (Friendlier American Lager). James Sullivan, marketing manager at Highland Park, said he enjoyed trying so many beers he would normally not be able to find, and “meeting the folks who make the beers, and learning more about their process.”

At the end of the day, with a smile on my wet face but no more room for even a sip of beer, I met Gary Cole and his dog, Jackie Boy. Cole’s parting comment summed up the day perfectly: “I’m glad it rained. If it didn’t rain, it wouldn’t be a story!”

Carlsbad gallery hosts global art project

A global art project showcasing more than 100 artists worldwide will be featured at the Front Porch Gallery.

The “Lift the Sky” project features more than 115 artworks conveying artist messages created in numerous mediums, including paintings, art quilts, fiber art, collage, photography and mixed media, to name a few.

Some artworks' messages consist of text, others just images, but most are a combination of words and pictures, according to Julie Weaverling, who owns the gallery and founded “Lift the Sky.”

The exhibit runs from Jan. 22 through March 18.

The goal is to provide a counterpoint to the ongoing bombardment of negativity and divisive nature of media and sharing messages that unite, offer hope and bring people together, Weaverling said. Universal messages of hope, love, peace, joy, personal, and environmental will be included. All share each artist's voice, ideas, wishes, and hopes for the world.

“Artists feel inspired and empowered to offer their unique voice and art through their personal messages,” Weaverling said.

“And when joined together with other messages, viewers will at first glance be inspired by the sheer number of messages and then more directly connect with individual pieces that resonate with them.”

When the exhibit closes, Lift the Sky will seek additional opportunities to exhibit nationally and internationally at universities, museums, and public spaces such as international

airports, the United Nations and Washington, D.C.

Weaverling said she believes the creation of art is a manifestation of the human spirit and sharing that art creates community. Her and the gallery’s mission is to use art as a catalyst for more vibrant, creative communities and an understanding of aging as a spiritual journey.

The gallery, located at 2903 Carlsbad Boulevard,

Museum’s mural plans delayed again

— Plans

for a new mural at the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum were paused again following local historians’ fears the new artwork would cover a piece of the town’s history in dire need of preservation.

For nearly three years, a large white canvas on the front of the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum has covered the city’s first mural, created in 1970 by artist Frank Matranga, depicting a scene from the Battle of San Pasqual.

While some similar murals still exist throughout the city, many of Escondido’s oldest murals have been destroyed. According to the University of Southern California, the “Battle of San Pasqual” mural was rescued from the Escondido Sears Department Store before its demolition in the early 1990s.

The white canvas was placed over the mural when the museum acquired the building in 2011 at the city’s request to save the older mural underneath for possible preservation. The museum hoisted vinyl prints of artwork over the white canvas using a pulley system but stopped this practice following a storm in 2020 that blew the last display down.

On Jan. 9, museum representatives presented their mural concept, which would go directly on the canvas, to the Public Art

Commission for a third time to acquire city funding for the mural.

“We would love to add some bright color that represents who we are as the Children’s Discovery Museum,” said Heather Disher, director of the advancement at the museum.

The museum even brought its request for mural funding down from approximately $26,000 to $19,500, including artist fees, installation, and labor costs.

However, the Historic Preservation Commission members want the Public Art Commission to hold a joint meeting to discuss the significance of the older mural underneath the canvas and potentially find a way to fund its preservation.

While preservation could include moving the

mural, there is also a big chance that doing so would permanently damage or destroy it.

The museum considers its new mural as a current top priority. While the older mural has some historical significance, the museum owns the building, and some public art commissioners feel the battle scene is inappropriate for how the museum serves the community.

“It’s a battle,” said Public Art chair Ana Marie Velasco. “It doesn’t go with the Children’s Discovery Museum.”

Still, others like Commissioner Patricia Spann argued that the canvas hides an essential piece of city history.

“Escondido as a whole is a historic town,” Spann

was launched almost decades ago as an outreach program of Front Porch, a nonprofit organization consisting of 10 retirement and adult-living communities.

The exhibit may be viewed at Front Porch Gallery on Wednesdays through Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Contact Julie Weaverling at (760) 795-6120 or visit www.LifttheSky.com, or www.frontporchgallery.org.

Word to the wise: You shall not pass

marketing rob weinberg water spot

Personal branding with BO

For decades I’ve brushed my teeth after lunch so I don’t smell like food all afternoon. Nobody’s ever complained.

Running around New York City from a young age exposed me to significant cultural diversity.

This prepared me for attending a Washington DC college with a large Middle Eastern population. Many denizens of the arid desert bathed less frequently than their American counterparts. Indeed, one student never bathed. After receiving countless complaints, one of his professors called this student to the podium, handed over a bar of soap and told him to bathe.

Naturally, this student alleged harassment, sued and got thrown out of court when the judge proclaimed: “You stink. Take a bath!”

Despite this colorful background, I welcomed a consulting gig for a large scientific organization whose

team represented a wide range of ethnicities. I figured a global corporation meant a fascinating cultural mix with free-flowing, far-ranging lessons in language, food and humor.

However, one of the scientists came from a place where bathing wasn’t common, and that’s where my problem started. Having been brought up believing one should always smell nice, I typically found my stomach turning when downwind of her foul body odor.

Observing myself involuntarily nauseous and unable to concentrate when I was near this woman, I avoided her when possible or spoke with her from great distances.

One-on-one meetings in close quarters were obviously out of the question.

For some reason, many folks ignore the advice, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” when it comes to personal hygiene. This can be problematic for those

on the wrong end of the equation.

Because just as I was reluctant to meet or work closely with this woman, others are sure to react similarly. Supervisors won’t want to risk litigation and thus won’t tell her the problem directly.

However, it seems a safe bet I’m not the only one who reacts this way to objectionable body odor. And failure to take that into account when walking your career path can almost certainly lose you professional opportunities, regardless of how good your credentials may be.

Call it woke, hyper-sensitivity or politically incorrect if you must. Yet we’re all always selling ourselves, and the last thing anyone needs to help their efforts is the moniker “Stinky."

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

Success smells sweeter at www.askmrmarketing.com.

Nobody wants to be that guy, you know, the knowit-all, lecturing naïve tourists that they are likely to soil more than their new white tennies if they attempt taking certain paths on an incoming tide.

Mostly such tourists learn the hard way, when stuck between walls of pounding surf and a wall of boulders. Picnic baskets, cellphones and tennis shoes are ruined as they seek the comfort of dry land and the car heater.

I hate being that guy, and yet sometimes I force myself to inform newcomers of the unwritten rules of the road, starting with the one above.

I try being polite. Words like, “The tide is rising, and you might want to wait a while before walking the beach,” are often met with thanks, and as often with a “mind your own business” attitude.

Those leading the family are apparently trying to save face, something that can lead instead to mutiny when caught between the seawall and the deep blue sea.

I have also told people that bottles are not allowed on the beach, that they should not pick shellfish from the reef and take them home to rot in a bucket, and that they must pack their trash.

The latter will some -

chris ahrens

times cause me to lose my temper as I once did when I hurled trash back into the van from which it came. No doubt thinking that I was some dangerous psycho, the van’s passengers drove away quietly.

Some time ago I saw a man seated near his family in the shadow of a frail sandstone cave that lined Swami’s before it collapsed. The man was in a full lotus, breathing deeply in an apparent attempt to increase his awareness, which did not include the possibility of the bluff falling on him.

I doubt he had seen the photos of the temple that once stood on the cliff above him as it made its way down to the beach below.

Making matters still more uncomfortable was my having to rouse him from his meditation and inform him that he and his entire family were in danger of being buried in an avalanche. He reluctantly left the spot that has since sought the angle of repose.

While these reminders are uncomfortable on land, they are worse in the

water. Try telling someone not to take off in front anyone, that they shouldn’t try swimming against a rip, or that they are out of their depth in bigger surf and are proving themselves a danger to themselves and others.

I am somewhat ashamed to admit that as a young man, I once enjoyed demanding offending surfers leave the lineup, a practice I gave up when realizing that any graduate from a local surf school can out-surf me in these, the so-called golden years. I have never mastered the art of informing without being offensive and have come to the brink of fists because of it. A word to the wise is nonetheless warranted as I sit behind the safety on my laptop. Offended or not, please be cautious when being in or near the ocean. As you know or will soon discover, this is not a theme park ride tested for safety.

This is a wild world and it will not hear your terrified cries when up to your neck in seawater.

County Office of Education.

REGION

— This year’s group of California Distinguished School Program awardees includes a slate of North County schools in the Solana Beach, Del Mar Union, Encinitas Union and Escondido Union districts.

The list of the over 350 awardees throughout the state, all elementary schools, was released by California Department of Education on Jan. 6 and included schools from nine total districts in San Diego County.

Schools were selected for meeting at least one of two main goals — closing the achievement gap and achieving student excellence — by examining a mix of factors identified through school data. Along with attendance rates and school performance, the state also looked at schools’ professional development and social-emotional well-

“It is my pleasure to honor and recognize these 356 elementary schools for providing outstanding public education and opportunities to students. Their innovation and hard work have helped to ensure their students can heal, recover, and thrive—even in the toughest times,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond.

Five of the seven schools in the Solana Beach School District were recognized, along with two of Encinitas Union’s nine schools, five of Del Mar Union’s nine schools and two of Escondido Union’s 23 schools.

The aforementioned were among nine total San Diego County districts with schools on the list, along with San Diego Unified, Julian Union, Mountain Empire Unified, Warner Unified and the San Diego

Elementary schools and middle and high schools are recognized for the award on alternating years.

The list of North County award recipients are as follows:

Del Mar Union Elementary School District

— Ocean Air Elementary, Sage Canyon Elementary, Ashley Falls Elementary, Sycamore Ridge Elementary, Carmel Del Mar Elementary

Encinitas Union Elementary School District — El Camino Creek Elementary, Capri Elementary

Escondido Union Elementary School District

— Classical Academy, Heritage K-8 Charter Solana Beach School District — Carmel Creek Elementary, Solana Highlands Elementary, Solana Pacific Elementary, Skyline Elementary, Solana Ranch Elementary

said. “We can’t lose our history, and we can’t just hide it… What’s on the canvas is important but what’s behind the canvas is just as important.”

Historic Preservation Commission chair James Spann emphasized his desire to have a joint meeting with the Public Art Commission before making a mural decision as soon as possible.

“We need to understand what we can do and what we’re covering up,” Spann said.

According to City Clerk Zack Beck, the earliest such a meeting could happen is

This goes deeper than just me being sentimental about these changes in our community. I’ve spoken to many people who share my feelings, and there is not much we can do besides becoming heavily involved in local politics.

Still, even then, I feel

in February, but Andrew Firestine, the city's development services director, must approve the joint meeting first.

Public Art vice chair Juan Vargas voiced his discomfort with the cost as another concern about the mural. However, Vargas noted that the museum is a nonprofit that likely has other donors who could help pay for a portion of the mural instead of the city paying for the entire thing.

“They’re a philanthropic organization… they could find other sources,” Vargas said. “I would be open to assisting with funding but not paying for the whole thing.”

Disher noted that the

those who favor change for the sake of “progress” or upscaling the community and with deeper pockets will prevail.

In the meantime, please support these local businesses and the families that run them while you can.

They will be missed.

museum relies on philanthropic support through donations and fundraisers and uses the bulk of its funding to provide educational programming in Escondido’s elementary schools, libraries and other outlets that provide educational enrichment for children.

“At this time, we don’t receive a dollar from the city of Escondido,” Disher said.

The Public Art Commission ultimately voted to delay its decision on the museum’s mural until a joint meeting with the Historic Preservation Commission commences. A date has yet to be set for the joint session.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be hurt by a colleague’s harsh criticism. But don’t let it shake your confidence in what you’re trying to do. A more positive aspect starts to appear by week’s end.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)

You’re torn between your sensible self and the part of you that enjoys acquiring lovely things. Best advice: Wait for a sale, and then buy yourself something wonderful.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your artistic side has practical applications this week, such as redecorating your home or redesigning your personal stationery. Whatever you do, someone special will like it.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22)

You could be drawn into a problem between friends or family members.

Best bet: Ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter, and then get them all together for a group hug.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you love being the center of attention, your big Lion’s heart impels you to share the spotlight with a colleague who helped you with that wellpraised project.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your eagerness to act on a challenge is wisely tempered early in the week by a lack of necessary information. Things begin to clear up during the weekend.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A relationship you’d hoped would keep going seems to be going nowhere. Close it out and move on to a brighter romantic aspect just beginning to manifest itself.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Things don’t go completely as planned this week. But enjoy the surprises, even if you have to adjust your schedule. Some of them could be quite delightful.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Making choices is usually easy for you straightshooting Archers. But a new development could deflect your aim. Try to put off decisions until you know more.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While part of you might prefer taking a more familiar path, let your more daring and — admit it — super-curious self see what the unexplored has to offer.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Those nasty types have slithered back under the rocks and present no more problems. Now’s the time to move ahead on that promising new relationship.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20)

A new offer could clear up that lingering money problem. Also, a more confident attitude on your part might help you get that personal situation back on track.

BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of turning chaos into order. You’re also generous with your help for those who seek it.

ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: The adoption of Ordinance No. 2023-02 is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”). To the extent that the Ordinance applies to Places of Employment, it regulates working conditions by ensuring that employees and volunteers are not exposed to the harmful effects of second-hand smoke and is therefore categorically exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15324(c) of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations (“CEQA Guidelines”). The Ordinance is also exempt from CEQA in its entirety pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061 (b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the Ordinance may have a significant effect on the environment. The Ordinance will have no adverse environmental effects because it will reduce the public’s exposure to the harmful effects of second-hand smoke. STAFF CONTACT: Sustainability Manager Crystal Najera, (760) 943- 2285, climateaction@encintiasca.gov.

Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $672,516.55 If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned or its predecessor caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE

TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to

free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 102487-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT:

Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of

warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. No cashier’s checks older than 60 days from the day of sale will be accepted.

If a group of trees within a neighborhood collectively meet one or more of the Heritage Tree criteria, then that group may be designated a “Heritage Grove” and each tree that is identified individually as a significant part of that Heritage Grove shall be considered a Heritage Tree. The designation of a Heritage Tree and/or Heritage Grove on private property requires the written consent of the private property owner in a form deemed sufficient by the City Attorney.

• “Heritage Grove” means a group of trees that collectively meet one or more of the Heritage Tree criteria.

PROJECT NAME: City of Carlsbad Orion Center Project

PROJECT NO: CUP 2018-0022 (PUB17Y-0018)

PROJECT LOCATION: 2600 Orion Way, Carlsbad, CA (APN 209-050-26)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The city’s Orion Center Project, 2600 Orion Way, would redevelop much of the existing 8.5-acre fleet maintenance facility and storage yard and adjacent vacant land bordered by Orion Street, Orion Way, and the existing city Safety Center. The project, on a portion of the city’s Safety Center complex, includes development of a 41,900 square foot (SF), two-story office building, three warehouse/shop buildings totaling 25,690 SF, and a 92,300 SF, four-story parking structure. Other project improvements include new and improved storage areas and a remodel of the existing fleet maintenance building. The project borders but would not impact adjacent habitat preserve.

PROPOSED DETERMINATION: The City of Carlsbad has conducted an environmental review of the above-described project pursuant to the Guidelines for Implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the Environmental Protection Ordinance of the City of Carlsbad. As a result of said review, the Initial study identified potentially significant effects on the environment, but (1) revisions in the project plans or proposals made by, or agreed to by, the applicant before the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration and Initial Study are released for public review would avoid the effects or mitigate the effects to a point where clearly no significant effect on the environment would occur, and (2) there is no substantial evidence in light of the whole record before the City that the project “as revised” may have a significant effect on the environment. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration will be recommended for adoption by the City of Carlsbad Planning Commission.

AVAILABILITY: A copy of the Initial Study documenting reasons to support the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration is on file in the Planning Division, 1635 Faraday Avenue, Carlsbad, California 92008 and is available online at: https://www.carlsbadca. gov/departments/community-development/planning/agendas-minutes-notices

COMMENTS: Comments from the public are invited. Pursuant to Section 15204 of the CEQA Guidelines, in reviewing Mitigated Negative Declarations, persons and public agencies should focus on the proposed finding that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment. If persons and public agencies believe that the project may have a significant effect, they should: (1) identify the specific effect; (2) explain why they believe the effect would occur; and (3) explain why they believe the effect would be significant. Written comments regarding the draft Mitigated Negative Declaration should be directed to Izzak Mireles, Associate Planner at the address listed below or via email to Izzak.Mireles@carlsbadca.gov. Comments must be received within 30 days of the date of this notice.

The proposed project and Mitigated Negative Declaration are subject to review and approval/adoption by the Planning Commission. An additional public notice will be issued when the public hearing before the Planning Commission is scheduled. If you have any questions, please call Izzak Mireles in the Planning Division at (442) 339-2693.

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

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

The Petition for Probate requests that Jeffrey Watkins 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

Date: March 08, 2023;

follows:

Time: 1:30 PM; in Dept.: 502.

Court address: 1100 Union St., San Diego CA 92101, Central Courthouse.

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

ProbateHearings

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

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

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

Our skilled urologists provide an alternative to traditional surgery with the UroLift® System, typically a one-time outpatient procedure that provides rapid relief and recovery for men living with symptoms of an enlarged prostate. The goal is to relieve your BPH symptoms so you can get back to doing the things you want to do.
