Silvergate San Marcos — North County’s leading boutique-style retirement community — opens its sixth and final neighborhood in its dedicated Memory Care Suites building in January 2023. To celebrate having completed major renovations this year and mark the opening of the final collection all-private memory care suites, the community has announced a year-end savings program that will lock in one full year of 2022 pricing in the new year for families seeking care for loved ones living with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or memory loss.

A Proven Care Solution for Those Facing Memory Loss

“We understand what families face during the holidays as they return home to visit aging parents,” said David Nelson, Director of Marketing for the Silvergate San Marcos senior living community. “Often, the challenges of care become too much for families and having a proven care solution to turn to — like what we offer at Silvergate — can be a welcome relief for family members, especially when they have their own families to care for and are juggling their own obligations.”

This month, families can visit the community for a private tour, learn about how professional memory care is delivered at Silvergate and secure 2022 pricing on an all-private Memory Care Suite at Silvergate San Marcos through December 31st , representing a signifi cant savings in the new year. For a loved one who may now need more specialized care and mind-nurturing activities than families can provide at home, the community’s award-winning

care solution and innovative building design offer the peace of mind families are seeking at the holiday season and throughout the year.

Dedicated Building – Neighborhood Design

Unique to Silvergate, the dedicated Memory Care Suites building was designed specifically for seniors managing the challenges associated with impaired memory. The building houses six distinct “neighborhoods,” each made up of private and shared rooms oriented towards common living and dining room spaces. The neighborhood design takes a more personalized, home-like approach to care and provides residents with an easy-to-navigate building floorplan.

Each neighborhood has an adjacent, themed Activity Room that has been renovated, giving residents a variety of destinations each day for activities and events, including an arts and craft room, a music room, a quiet reading room and a sunroom. These spaces help provide residents with an opportunity to connect with others and engage in regular activities every day such as music therapy, wellness classes, brain teasers and group conversation. These upgraded Activity Rooms come online with an all-new roster of therapeutic and inspiring activities for residents who are living with the challenges associated with dementia and memory loss.

“We’re here to support residents, their families and the community as they look for viable solutions to care for loved ones who are coming to terms with a dementia diagnosis,” said Janet Mangaya, Director of Resident Care at Silvergate San Marcos. “Our team has a firm grasp on how cognitive deficit works,

understands how to control emotions and is specially trained to provide the most effective care techniques that bring meaningful moments for those challenged by memory loss. We’ve helped countless families on their journey to understanding and coping with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.”

Proven Experience & Award-Winning Care

The seasoned team of nurses, medical technicians and caregivers deliver the highest levels of care with the greatest degree of dignity, respect, and sensitivity, according to Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for the Silvergate San Marcos community.

“Our memory care services are unlike any other because we maintain an industry-leading caregiverto-resident ratio with at least one caregiver for every six residents,” said Rink-Carroll, who has assembled a highly specialized team of nurses, caregivers and staff to operate the community’s memory care unit. “We believe having more eyes on fewer residents provides increased supervision and assures the safety and security of residents.”

Man, 23, killed in Encinitas hit-and-run on New Year’s Day

ENCINITAS — The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s assistance in tracking down a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run early Sunday morning in Encinitas that left a man dead.

The victim has been identified as David D’Lima, 23, a graduate of Canyon Crest Academy who went on to attend UC Santa Barbara.

While law enforcement hasn’t confirmed the victim’s city of residence, an individual matching his name and age appears to be a graduate of Canyon

Crest Academy and reside in Carmel Valley.

Around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, a vehicle traveling westbound on Encinitas Boulevard struck a male pedestrian who was crossing Encinitas Boulevard at Coast Highway 101.

The vehicle then continued onto West B Street and fled the area, according to Sheriff’s deputies.

The man was rushed to the hospital with major injuries but was later pronounced deceased.

Sheriff’s deputies described the vehicle as a dark colored sedan or van, possibly a Chrysler or Dodge, with damage to the

front driver’s side.

It is not currently known if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.

Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station at (760) 966-3500 or the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department at (858) 5655200.

Assault leaves man in critical condition

A 20-year-old is in critical condition after being assaulted by multiple people early Saturday in Vista.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the attack after deputies found the man, whose name has not been released, unconscious in the 300 block of Vista Village Drive around 1 a.m. on Saturday with numerous injuries.

Witnesses said he was attacked by numerous people. He is currently in critical but stable condition, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

No arrests have been made in the case as of Saturday.

Anyone who witnessed

the attack or has information about possible suspects to contact is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Department at 858-565-5200.

Carlsbad police find body near I-5

A decomposed body was found on Dec. 31 in the brush on the side of Interstate 5, police confirmed.

Officers were responding to a call of a shoplifter at Ralph’s supermarket at 7140 Avenida Encinas at 4:09 p.m. Friday when they found what appeared to be a homeless encampment with human remains in the brush area south-

east of the shopping center, according to Lt. Shaun Lawton of the Carlsbad Police Department.

“Based on the condition of these remains, it appears as though they had been there for some time, possibly months,’’ the lieutenant said.

Officials from the San Diego County coroner’s office were called to the scene.

The identity of the dead person was pending further investigation.

There was no indication of foul play, Lawton said.

Rep. Levin secures millions for North County projects

REGION — Congressman Mike Levin (D-CA) helped secure millions in federal grants for several North County projects, from helping construct Veterans Memorial Park in Carlsbad to improving stormwater drainage along Coast Highway 101 in Leucadia.

Girl, 16, city’s first female Eagle Scout

SAN MARCOS — A 16-year-old high school junior has become the first female Eagle Scout in San Marcos — something that would not have been possible three years ago — after helping to start a local Boy Scouts of America troop for young women.

Allison “Allie” Primosch, a junior at San Marcos High School, has always chased adventure in the form of hiking, camping and other outdoor activities but struggled to find an organization that offered enough opportunities.

In 2019, she finally had the chance to do all these things and more with the Boy Scouts after the organization finally began accepting young women into its ranks. This positioned Primosch and others within reach of the esteemed Eagle Scout status, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts' program.

“What I really wanted to do was get out and do outdoor adventures, and I really got to do that with scouts,” Primosch said, describing how her troop did activities like backpacking, camping, and snow camping. “It would be so cool if more girls were interested in or encouraged to be in boy scouting. It’s such a good program, and if you stick with it, you learn so much, but you don’t even realize you’re learning be-

In total, Levin secured nearly $50 million for projects in Orange and San Diego counties after the House of Representatives recently passed a federal omnibus appropriations bill.

The city of Carlsbad received $3 million to help fund construction for Veterans Memorial Park, which consists of 94 acres of open space off Cannon Road along Faraday Avenue and will feature approximately 55 acres of preserve and 39 acres of parkland.

The sprawling park includes a memorial plaza, three playgrounds, two mountain bike tracks, outdoor exercise and picnic areas, trails and public art, among other features.

Construction is expected to be in 2024 be completed by 2025.

“This project will benefit Carlsbad’s estimated 114,250 residents and four million visitors each year, including those from neighboring cities that lack access to new park facilities,” Levin’s statement reads. “For this reason, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) has identified the Veterans Memorial Park as a regional

open space park, indicating that the park will serve a regional need.”

According to the city’s park performance standards, each of the city’s quadrants will have a surplus of at least 14 acres of park space.

In August, Kyle Lancaster, Carlsbad’s director of Parks and Recreation, said the city also has 80 acres of park projects in the pipeline.

Lancaster said the next step is to prepare the bid with an estimated project cost of $30.2 million funded by the Community Facilities District No. 1, a citywide district created in 1991 to pay for facilities, improvements and highway interchanges. The district levied a one-time special

tax lien on vacant properties to help finance the development.

However, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, construction estimates have increased to about $35 million.

Funding for other municipalities

• Del Mar received $750,000 toward its Del Mar Climate Resiliency and Access Improvement Project. The project would enhance mobility and adaptation to the effects of climate change in Del Mar and the surrounding area.

The city requested

$1,768,200 to implement pre-construction monitoring and project notification for a future sand replenishment project, complete

a conceptual design for a flood mitigation project, and connect existing trails to expand pedestrian access and create a scenic loop trail network through the entire city.

• The MiraCosta Community College District received $1 million for its Technology Career Institute. The institute will use this funding to expand its course offerings to include virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, robotics, and automation.

With this funding, TCI expects to train at least 445 students, and the program will also make education and certificates accessible to a more diverse community. Also, the institute can reduce tuition to a maximum of $1,000 for any individual (Tuition typically runs between $1,500 and $7,500). It will also help them provide childcare and

SDUHSD: Off to a rocky start

“Won’t Get Fooled Again,” the closing track on “Who’s Next,” The Who’s 1971 album, finishes with "the greatest scream of a career filled with screams" from Roger Daltrey, followed by his rendition of Pete Townsend’s now-iconic lyric: “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

Or, as the French are known to say, “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” The more things change, the more they stay the same.

We got a dose of that at the December 13 meeting of the newly-constituted San Dieguito Union High School District board of trustees. Following the November elections, the majority of the five-person board now consists of three trustees who enjoy the backing of the teachers’ union: Katrina Young, Rimga Viskanta and Jane Lea Smith — the latter two being newly elected.

This alignment returns the district to the circumstances which existed prior to the 2020 election, after which, briefly, an independent majority prevailed. Plus ça change…

The question now to be resolved is whether this new majority will revert to old habits or find a way to avoid the drama, controversy, and public outrage of recent months. Based on the very first board meeting, they’re off to a rocky start.

Two items on the December 13 agenda suggest we have reason to be concerned.

First, the majority voted to conduct elections for the new Board officers without first allowing public comment.

which requires that the public be given the opportunity to comment about agenda items before or during board deliberation.

This violation was the subject of a letter to the board appended to the agenda of the December 29 Special Meeting (3-C, “anticipated litigation”). Due to the illegality of this board action, the election of officers will have to be conducted again.

The second item of concern seems much worse, also involving a violation of the law.

Item 12-E on December 13 was a proposed amendment to the San Dieguito Faculty Association (Teachers Union) Master Contract, which was just approved last October.

The existing contract provides for an increase in the district’s contribution towards healthcare insurance according to terms which calculate to be 6.15%, nearly in line with the 6.5% aggregate increase in the cost of health insurance across the district.

The proposed amendment, in contrast, would increase the district’s healthcare contribution by nearly 20%.

Moreover, as a result, out-of-pocket premium costs for a majority of the teachers would actually decline. In return for that largesse, the district would get...nothing.

The difference between the contractually-required increase and the amount requested by the union is over $300,000 per year, which will become part of the baseline subsidy calculation in the years ahead.

kids.

Being fiscally reckless is not a violation of the law. But hiding information about the matter from the public is. The limited discussion during the meeting revealed that Trustee Michael Allman had earlier shared with the other members of the Board summary data showing the actual cost of the proposal to the District.

By law, that information must be made available to the public; it was not.

Even more troubling, when Allman attempted to address the issue during the meeting, he was interrupted by now-President Viskanta, who prevented him from sharing the information with the public and denied him further opportunity to speak. Viskanta’s action was purposeful, aggressive, and, by silencing Allman, an abuse of power. It was also illegal.

The nature of that encounter suggests an intentional effort to withhold information from the public. Given the absence of any consideration from the SDFA in exchange, it seems the new Board majority has launched its tenure with a gratuitous ki$$ to its union supporters.

This may be about policy differences, but the circumstances suggest that the majority is reverting to type, facilitating another corrupt bargain between themselves and the public sector employees from whom they derive power. Plus ça change…

Silencing the minority in a public body is wrong – a course correction is needed, which could put the Board on the right track.

Success strategies for New Year’s resolutions

Almost 90% of Americans will make at least one New Year’s resolution.

Less than 20% will succeed in accomplishing even one.

The beginning of the year is a great time for life-improving resolutions.

Common resolutions include losing weight, giving up smoking, maintaining a budget, saving money, finding a better job, getting healthier, becoming more organized and spending more time with family.

Whatever your resolutions, here are some specific strategies to help you succeed.

First and foremost is to take the first step, which is to start. Without action, there will be no success. Action creates results. Intention alone will not work.

Have written goals stating what you want to accomplish. If you want to lose weight, how much and by when? If you want to live within a budget, what is the amount?

If you want to continue your education, what school will you go to and which classes will you take?

Take small but consistent steps. Habits are formed by frequent repetition over time. Change occurs by the same process. A resolution is not all or nothing.

Partial change is okay. Any progress in the desired direction, regardless of how small, is a success.

Accomplishing a resolution is a process, not a one-time effort. Positive goals are more effective than negative ones.

Rather than saying you will eat less, resolve to have a healthier diet. Instead of spending less time at work you can endeavor to spend more time at home.

Bad habits can’t just be eliminated; they have to be replaced by good ones.

Identify potential obstacles so they don’t surprise you. If you experience a setback, don’t give up. Don’t blame yourself if you stumble.

Failure only occurs

when you stop trying. Difficulties are an opportunity to learn. If you slide backwards, get back on track, get back in gear and resume your progress.

Don’t keep your plans a secret. Develop a support system utilizing friends and family. Visualize how great you will feel as you succeed. Take credit for all accomplishments. It doesn’t matter if your progress is slower than you would like.

Don’t try to change

too many things at once or you risk becoming overwhelmed and discouraged.

You can have a long list of resolutions so long as you realize all of the items don’t have to be addressed simultaneously.

Each accomplishment can be followed by another. Change can begin at any time, not just on Jan. 1. Believe in yourself and your ability to change. Change can feel difficult, uncomfortable, or painful, but you can do it. Become determined to succeed. Don’t procrastinate.

Although doing nothing is often an appealing alternative, it leads to frustration.

Each day is a new opportunity to work on your resolutions. If you were successful yesterday, fantastic, keep going.

If yesterday was a disappointment, today is a new chance to make progress. Replace the word “try” with “will.”

Do whatever it takes to get the results you want.

Justifying this process, Katrina Young commented that the public “can offer their input about what we have [already] decided at public comment, but if they are suggesting that we might change how we are voting by public comment, I think that would be not good governance.”

Unfortunately, that approach violates the law,

That money could pay for brand-new desks for all students in one of our middle schools every year. It could also fund the annual maintenance cost for the new swimming pool planned for Torrey Pines High School.

Unfortunately, someone’s got their priorities misplaced – it’s a great deal for teachers, not for the

If there is to be a sense of comity and détente on the Board, it will be necessary for the majority to lead us there, with a willingness to listen to the minority and with reasoned and defensible policy choices.

Garvin Walsh is a resident of Encinitas and the San Dieguito Union High School District.

— TriCity Healthcare District president and CEO Steve Dietlin will retire at the end of March after spending more than a decade in leadership at the hospital.

Tri-City board chairman Rocky Chavez accepted Dietlin’s letter of retirement “with deep regret” on Dec. 30, praising his leadership over the last 10 years.

“Steve has been an outstanding, transformational leader for our hospital and community,” Chavez stated in an official announcement of Dietlin’s retirement. “He will be sorely missed.”

Dietlin first joined TriCity as the chief financial officer in 2013. Over the next few years, Dietlin was responsible for a positive turnaround of the hospital’s financial status.

Dietlin was named president and CEO in 2016. He has more than 30 years of healthcare management experience.

During Dietlin’s time as CEO, the hospital launched several initiatives to improve the region’s healthcare, including the creation of a new inpatient psychiatric health facility in partnership with the county as well as an almost-finished new MRI suite and an up -

coming emergency room remodel.

Dietlin also helped to secure funding for the hospital and to establish TriCity as a leader in community engagement through its COASTAL Commitment outreach initiative, partnering with more than 80 local organizations to focus on regional issues like access to healthcare, community and social support, economic security and education, and homelessness and housing instability.

Dietlin was a stabilizing force for the hospital through his calm and thoughtful approach to leadership, according to healthcare district officials.

In his retirement announcement, Dietlin expressed his pride over the hospital’s accomplishments during his tenure.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the communities of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista over the past decade,” Dietlin said.

“Leading and working side-by-side with thousands of dedicated Tri-City team members and community leaders to deliver our mission to advance the health and wellness of our community has been a rewarding experience that I will always carry with me.”

The Tri-City Healthcare District board of directors has formed an ad hoc committee to find Dietlin’s replacement.

Carlsbad teen YoungArts writing finalist

ents.

CARLSBAD — A local teenager was recently named a YoungArts writing finalist, the organization’s top accolade, and became eligible for the prestigious U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts award, one of the nation’s highest academic honors for high school students.

Last month, Carlsbad resident Mia Davis, 17, a senior at Academy of Our Lady of Peace High School in San Diego, joined approximately 700 other YoungArts award winners nationwide across several disciplines, including design arts, theater, writing, voice, dance, music and film.

A finalist in the spoken word category, Davis will participate in National YoungArts Week from Jan. 8-15 in Miami.

Participants will have the chance to learn from notable artists, such as architect Germane Barnes, author Richard Blanco, actor and playwright Taylor Mac, jazz alto saxophonist Charles McPherson, costume designer Machine Dazzle and actor BD Wong, according to a YoungArts press release.

“I was completely shocked. I had absolutely no idea,” Davis told The Coast News. “I was at school and just started screaming and jumping around. It was a great moment. Very special.”

As a YoungArts award winner, Davis joins a distinguished group of accomplished artists, including contemporary artist Daniel Arsham, trumpeter Terence Blanchard, dancer Camille A. Brown, actor Timothée Chalamet, actress Viola Davis and poet Amanda Gorman, to name a few.

Lin and Ted Arison established YoungArts in 1981 to identify exceptional young artists, amplify

potential and invest in lifelong creative freedom. YoungArts provides space, funding, mentorship, professional development and community throughout an artist's career.

Selected through the organization’s prestigious competition, YoungArts award winners, all 15-18 years old, are chosen for the caliber of their artistic achievement by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous, blind adjudication process.

YoungArts is the sole nominating agency for the President Scholar in the Arts award, established by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 to recognize the nation’s top graduating high school seniors.

In 1979, the program was expanded to include students who demonstrat-

ed talent in the visual, creative and performing arts.

YoungArts nominates 60 artists to the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars each year. The commission then selects 20 award recipi-

“Every year, we are inspired anew by the talent, dedication and creativity of extraordinary early career artists,” said YoungArts artistic director Lauren Snelling.

“YoungArts is proud to support artists at critical junctures throughout their lives, and we look forward to providing community and professional and creative development opportunities that will empower the 2023 award winners as they embark on exciting careers in the arts. Now more than ever, it is essential to support artists so their voices can be heard long into the future.”

For the duration of her career, Davis is eligible for exclusive creative and professional development support, including a wide range of fellowships, residencies and awards; micro-grants and financial awards; virtual and in-person presentation opportunities in collaboration with notable venues and cultural partners nationwide; and access to YoungArts Post, a free, private online platform for YoungArts artists to connect, collaborate and discover new opportunities.

Other local 2023 YoungArts winners include Canyon Crest Academy’s Hans Yang (Writing, Novel), and Torrey Pines High School’s Avery Hall and Canyon Crest Academy’s Grace Li (Dance, Modern Contemporary).

ESCONDIDO — Store closures are increasing at Westfield North County in Escondido, with business owners citing the pandemic, departure of major retailers and mall ownership’s poor management as contributing factors.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, regional economic experts say that the mall has suffered from a marked

increase in tenant vacancies, along with a substantial reduction in foot traffic at the shopping center.

From larger department store chains to smaller retailers and singular establishments, a sizeable number of the mall’s businesses are being forced to close or are on the brink of shutting down, according to Erik Bruvold, CEO of the San Diego North Economic Development Council.

Full of pride and pie crust

It was a Christmas miracle.

I made a pie crust. A fairly decent pie crust. It was my first — the one bake I have been avoiding for decades.

I’m just sorry my mom wasn’t here to see it. She made perfect pie crusts and never really understood why I was so intimidated by it.

The small irony is I didn’t actually make a pie. What I craved were the cinnamon pinwheels my mom used to make with her leftover dough. I loved them and there were never enough.

I used the entire pie recipe and made pans and pans of them, perfect for munching.

Of course, they don’t taste the same as my mom’s, but they were close enough to warrant a second batch

small talk

jean gillette

— so technically I made two pie crusts. I am still amazed.

Jumping into a tricky bake is much easier when you have nothing to lose. I wasn’t baking for anyone else. No one else in my house fancies the pinwheels. And of course, I burned some of the first batch. No worries. It was all part of the big experiment.

I have had a bad habit, over the years, of trying to cook things I’ve never cooked before, with use as a gift in mind. Bad plan.

I watched my mom make fudge year after year

and figured it was doable. Nope. I tossed three batches before I gave it a pass and made the boyfriend some easy cookies. I haven’t tried it since.

Armed with my pie confidence, maybe this is the year.

So, stocked with a bag of pinwheels, my favorite chocolates and a pizza, I went to ground for New Year’s Eve. My daughter had planned a party for her 30-something friends and I wanted to be as scarce as possible.

I prepared for the apocalypse and laid low, munching happily and watched movies late into the night. May you all munch happily into 2023.

Screwiest conversation of the week

Recently I visited Rancho Bernardo to deliver a package. My friend’s office is a PO box at a storefront, and I forgot the address amidst the holiday hubbub.

Fortunately, I had the right shopping center. With only two such stores to choose from, I had a 50/50 shot of finding it. Naturally, my first guess was wrong, leading to this conversation:

ME:Does Jane Jones get her mail here?

CLERK: How would I know?

ME:Um … check your customer list?

Recognizing I had the wrong location, I entered Store B to have this conversation:

ME:Does Jane Jones get her mail here?

CLERK: Yes. No computers. No lists. Just four employees nodding, leading me to three conclusions:

1) I must pay more attention to addresses I’m traveling to;

2) Jane is memorable;

Seniors visit historic Riverside hotel over holidays

of the 120-year-old Mission Inn Hotel in Riverside, were colorfully shared by a hotel historian this holiday season with residents of Silvergate Retirement Residence.

JOIN THE NORTH COASTAL SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT SENIOR VOLUNTEER PATROL

The Senior Volunteer Patrol of the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station performs home vacation security checks, assists with traffic control, enforces disabled parking regulations, patrols neighborhoods, schools, parks and shopping centers and visits homebound seniors who live alone for the communities of Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar.& portions of the county’s unincorporated areas. Volunteers must be at least age 50, be in good health, pass a background check, have auto insurance & a valid California driver’s license. Training includes a two week academy plus training patrols. The minimum commitment is 24 hours per month, & attendance at a monthly meeting. Interested parties should call (760) 966-3579 to arrange an information meeting.

The entire Silvergate family, including nearly 100 residents and guests, came together to celebrate and enjoy the Festival of Lights at the mission-revival style inn.

“Our annual holiday celebration has become a Silvergate family tradition,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, executive director of Silvergate’s San Marcos community, whose residents and guests enjoyed a fine-dining experience in the same room where presidents, royalty and celebrities have gathered for more than a century.

Surrounded by the beauty of the Mission Inn at the holiday season, Silver-

gate attendees were treated to a historical overview of the hotel’s priceless artworks and later meandered through an array of holiday lights and decorations.

While dining in the hotel’s historic Spanish Art Gallery, Silvergate’s guests were told stories imparted by Hotel Docent BarbaraAnn Burns.

In her talk, Burns recounted the history of the hotel’s colorful owner, Christopher Columbus Miller. She also shared about the weddings and honeymoons enjoyed at the inn by figures such as Richard and Pat Nixon, Bette Davis, and Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

Burns spoke of the many visits made to the inn by famous figures like Andrew Carnegie, W.C. Fields, Clark Gable, Tom Hanks and Ted Kennedy.

3) Store B knows their customers much better than Store A does And there it was in a nutshell — the key to business success.

Advertising executive David Ogilvy observed: “The customer is not a moron. She’s your wife.” It’s a lesson the folks at Store A would be wise to remember.

Because customers know when they’re valued and also when they’re just numbers in a ledger. Store A’s team doesn’t know their clientele unless they see their name on a list.

Store B, however, knew their customer without hesitation. They obviously know Jane (who is memorable), but I’ll venture a guess they know all their customers.

Which means if Joe or Sam doesn’t show up for a while, they’ll notice. They’ll

probably even reach out to make sure everything’s okay.

But I’m betting the other guys wouldn’t notice until a mailbox overflowed or an invoice remained unpaid.

Recognize that “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” applies in business. Because despite anything you’ve read, customers want to be treated like real people.

Furthermore, given the choice between someone just wanting my money and someone who actually knows (and cares) who I am, I’m going to go for the latter choice every time.

And I’m not alone!

As you’re considering how to grow your business over the coming year, take some time to get to know your customers one-on-one. They’ll appreciate it, and you (and your bottom line) will be richer for it.

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

Carlsbad mother’s e-bike death stuns residents

CARLSBAD — The city is reeling after a Carlsbad woman riding an e-bike with her 16-monthold child was struck and killed by a vehicle on Aug. 7 at the intersection of Basswood Avenue and Valley Street.

The victim, Christine Hawk Embree, 35, was cycling at approximately 5:45 p.m. on Aug. 7 with her infant daughter Delilah when she collided with a 42-year-old woman driving a Toyota 4-Runner.

Embree’s daughter survived without injury despite being thrown from her mother’s e-bike.

The identity of the driver, who remained at the scene after the fatal collision, has not been released, according to a spokesperson with the Carlsbad Police.

While police have

determined drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the incident, the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Embree, who suffered serious injuries, was transported to a local hospital, where she died the following day, according to police.

A memorial for Embree was held on Aug. 14 at the site of the collision.

Affordable home sold prematurely in Encinitas

ENCINITAS — A designated affordable home in Cardiff-by-the-Sea was sold to an investor and entered third-party escrow two weeks before the developer was authorized to begin advertising the house for sale, raising serious doubts about whether the home was purchased legitimately under the terms of the city’s affordable housing agreement.

After first notifying the city of its intent to sell the home via email on Aug. 12, 2020, Kenneth Reed, a mortgage originator at Finance of America Mortgage, accepted a seller counteroffer from developer New Pointe Investment on Sept. 30, 2020, to purchase the affordable home at 1412 Mackinnon, according to financial records and emails obtained by The Coast News via

public records request.

The Mackinnon property is one of two affordable homes at the center of a federal lawsuit alleging discriminatory and unlawful housing practices in Encinitas.

Under the city’s affordable housing agreement, New Pointe had approximately two weeks remaining of a mandatory 60-day waiting period...

Parent of child with disabilities fights DMUSD

DEL MAR — A single mother in the Del Mar Union School District believes administrators are retaliating against her after she was slapped with two restraining orders preventing her from coming within 200 feet of any district campus — including her child’s former school — in response to what she described as advocacy for her child with disabilities.

Both orders — one on behalf of an Ashley Falls Elementary teacher and another on behalf of district administrators Special Education Director Nadine Schick and Student Services Director Jennifer Huh — originally mandated 100 yards of distance from Ashley Falls Elementary School and the district office.

However, by March, Superior Court Judge Rich-

ard Whitney had expanded the restrictions to 200 yards from all eight district schools and the district office.

As a result of the restraining orders, Natalie was restricted from going to her son’s sixth-grade graduation and school play.

While he is no longer in the district, she is forbidden to go near any district campuses until 2023.

Series of dog illnesses, deaths worry residents

OCEANSIDE — Despite being 16 years old, Maggie was a happy, healthy dog who seemed to have years of boundless energy remaining in her life.

The duck-tolling retriever loved to walk with her best friend and owner, Pete Gajria, along the peaceful, residential trail that winds through the Arrowood Village community in Oceanside.

In April 2021, just like many others, Gajria and Maggie walked to the park to play and explore the area. Maggie ventured over to a nearby tree, ate some grass and then when it was time for her to re-

turn to Gajria, she suddenly fell down and couldn’t get up, according to Gajria.

“I had to call my wife to come pick us up,” Gajria said.

Decades of flooding in Leucadia raises concerns

ENCINITAS — Jeff, a Leucadia resident who lives on Basil Street, said it was in 2001 when his home first flooded.

“It was two weeks after I moved in, and I had just painted the house and put in new carpeting, so it really wasn’t good timing,” Jeff recalled with a laugh, noting his home would flood again four years later.

But for Jeff and his neighbors who live along North Coast Highway 101 in Leucadia, the issue of flooding in Leucadia has been no laughing matter.

For nearly three decades now, Leucadia residents

in an area spanning from roughly Basil Street to further north at Ponto Beach have lived with the distinct possibility of flooding during storm seasons.

Political insiders allege secret deal in mayor’s race

O’side committee to share findings on field access

OCEANSIDE — After months of hearing testimony from recreational sports teams across Oceanside, the city’s ad hoc committee will soon deliver its findings on whether the application process for sports teams to access municipal gyms and fields is fair for everyone.

complained about the lack of access to fields but also how they felt they had been treated unfairly and condescendingly by city staff and that they felt...

So the fisherman turned marine ...

Leucadia tenants speak out against ‘renovictions’

ENCINITAS — An increasing number of longtime Leucadia residents are being priced out of their apartments through a controversial but legal practice that allows property owners to remove tenants under the auspices of remodeling their units.

“Renoviction” (a portmanteau of the words “renovation” and “eviction”) is not a new phenomenon nor is it unique to Encinitas. However, residents, city officials and local housing attorneys all agree the practice has been on the rise in recent months.

Mike Mager and his wife were model tenants at

Volunteer to help reduce food insecurity in North County

As we end the season of holiday giving and start a new year, I have heard many of my friends and colleagues talk about New Year’s resolutions.

Many of these folks talk about volunteering for local food programs.

HOW TO BE A FOOD RECOVERY VOLUNTEER

ProduceGood, a local nonprofit food recovery program in North County, epitomizes the concept of “gleaning,” which is the US Department of Agriculture defines as the “act of collecting excess fresh food from farms, gardens, farmers markets, grocery stores and restaurants.”

Nita Kurmins Gilson, Alexandra White and Jerilyn White began ProduceGood in 2014 and since then have recovered 1 million pounds of food collected by staff and volunteers from farmers markets, Jimbo’s Grocery Store, Yasukochi Family Farms and 75 farmers and home orchards in the San Diego area.

The food is distributed to local food pantry distribution centers including the

One Kitchen Collaborative in Oceanside.

The ProduceGood staff and community volunteers work 52 weeks a year to help end hunger in San Diego.

Contact info@producegood.org or call (760) 4923467 to find out more about becoming a volunteer.

HOMEGROWN HUNGER RELIEF

Home gardeners and community gardeners can donate their garden produce to an innovative program created by Mim Michelove and Encinitas-based Healthy Day Partners.

The project, Homegrown Hunger Relief, “helps improve local community health and strengthens the local food system, while reducing food waste.”

Michelove and her staff have set up five “donation stations” in Encinitas and Carlsbad where local gardeners can drop off their homegrown garden produce. The gardeners can also work with the staff to produce vegetable seedlings, which produce more food!

The group also works with local organic food markets, such as Jimbo’s, to glean from the produce at the store. The donation stations are located (on Sundays only) at the San Diego Botanic Garden, the Encinitas Library, the Olivenhain Hotel and the Village Rock Shop in Carlsbad.

For complete instructions regarding garden

produce donations, visit healthydaypartners.org.

This project comes full circle each week, as the donated produce is delivered to the Community Resource

Center in Encinitas, where it is distributed to local residents.

For more information regarding food distribution, contact crcncc.org or call

(760) 753-1156.

Mim will also host a four-session class at the San Diego Botanic Garden, beginning Jan. 14h. The class, “Grow Food — End Hunger

— Save the Planet,” will enliven participants’ vegetable gardening skills and teach them how to produce enough in one’s garden to feed a family plus another family in need.

The extra produce will be distributed at the Community Resource Center through the Homegrown Relief Program. Contact the San Diego Botanic Garden, info@sdbg.org, for more information.

SHARE YOUR GARDENING SKILLS

Homegrown Hunger Relief and ProduceGood are just two of the many food recovery and food pantry distribution projects in North County. Many local churches and community centers have begun serving those local residents who are experiencing food insecurity.

Considering that 1 in 4 San Diego residents is experiencing or has previously experienced this issue, we owe it to our fellow residents to help pass our gardening expertise forward in this new year.

Happy gardening and volunteering to our readers.

Wrapping up a crazy year in sports

comeback — but fell short in triple overtime, 55-53.

SATURDAY

Another 12 months of baseball, football, basketball, golf, NASCAR, Formula One, tennis, Olympics, soccer, horse racing and more have entered the books. If you're like me, you’re probably already buckled in and ready for more.

Let's start with the LA Rams winning the Super Bowl LVI in front of a home crowd at SoFi Stadium in February. Then, after another whirlwind March Madness, the Kansas Jayhawks won the NCAA men’s basketball championship. The Golden State Warriors won another NBA Championship three months later — their fourth title in eight years.

More from the craziest year in sports:

• Sonny Leon, riding Rich Strike, was a 75-to-1 long shot at winning the Kentucky Derby. Leon’s colt made it into the race after another horse couldn’t participate and went on to win the Run for the Roses on the first Saturday in May.

• San Diego Padres: What a year of memories for the Friar faithful. The Padres beating the 110-win Los Angeles Dodgers, arguably one of the better baseball teams in MLB history, was the ultimate high for San Diego sports fans in 2022.

• The World Cup Qatar 2022 took center stage and brought the world together to collectively witness one of the best tournaments ever played in soccer. Soccer legend Lionel Messi led Argentina to defeat France 4-2 in penalty kicks after the game was tied at 3-3. In what is considered likely his final World Cup appearance, Messi finally earned the coveted prize.

• College Football: The bowl season was wild.

In San Diego, the No. 15 Oregon Ducks and the North Carolina Tar Heels faced off in the Holiday Bowl, which was hosted at Petco Park for the first time in the baseball stadium’s history.

The Ducks, trailing 2721 in the game’s final minutes, drove down the field and scored the game-tying touchdown before banking the PAT off the left upright to seal the win over UNC, 28-27. The entire country watched this magical and thrilling matchup. Congratulations, America’s Finest City.

• The same night, the Arkansas Razorbacks watched their big lead over the Kansas Jayhawks disappear in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis. Trailing 31-7, the Jayhawks mounted a huge — and highly improbable

Two NCAA semifinal matchups — Michigan and TCU kicked off the day with the first game in the Fiesta Bowl. This game had all the drama and close calls of any memorable game. When a team had the edge, the other scored quickly on the next possession. The Horned Frogs jumped to a quick start, scoring soon after the opening kickoff and keeping their foot on the pedal.

Michigan had some bad luck — a touchdown reversed, fumbling on the oneyard line and a blown targeting call to end the game. TCU is the first Big 12 team to make the championship game since the playoff began. The Horned Frogs were tabbed underdogs at a touchdown and a hook (+7 1/2) but kept their championship hopes alive in a 51-45 win to hand the Wolverines their only loss of the season.

The second game held in Atlanta featured undefeated Georgia and Ohio State. This game, just like the earlier game, was an instant classic. By the fourth quarter, the Buckeyes seemed to have taken control of the game, leading the Bulldogs 28-14.

But Georgia launched a gallant comeback, surviving after the Buckeyes missed a last-second field goal to win, 42-41. The Bulldogs earned their second straight championship game appearance, on Jan. 9 in Los Angeles.

This college football season has been tremendous. Many college bowl games are candidates for the best of all time. While the opt-outs and transfer portal had some limited liabilities, overall, the college football season was poetry in motion.

SUNDAY

The NFL’s Week 17 had significant ramifications heading into the day, with several teams vying for an opportunity to play in the postseason. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers all won to improve their playoff hopes. The Washington Commanders, however, did not and were eliminated after losing to the Cleveland Browns. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the NFC South.

The final week pits the Lions and Packers for a Wild Card slot. Other teams still alive: New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks.

There is one more college football game of significance: TCU and Georgia in the College Football Playoff championship game. Plus, another week of the NFL's topsy-turvy regular season.

As we have seen in the past, nothing should be taken as a safe path. The road has proven to be rugged the entire way. And yet, the beat goes on!

Rally car star Block dies at 55

Orange Glen HS alum, DC Shoes co-founder killed in Utah accident

rally race car driver and DC Shoes co-founder Ken Block died Monday in a snowmobile accident in Wasatch County, Utah.

The 55-year-old entrepreneur with North County ties “was riding a snowmobile on a steep slope when the snowmobile upended, landing on top of him. He was pronounced deceased at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident,”

according to a statement from the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office.

Block was reported to be based in Los Angeles County, but had a home in Utah. Wasatch County is near Park City.

Block set down many of his professional roots in North County. He moved from Long Beach to Escondido in his teens when his parents bought an avocado grove near Escondido. He attended Orange Glen High

School and immersed himself in the culture of professional skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding that would become a large part of his life, he told The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Michigan, in 2019.

In 1994, Block co-founded DC Shoes, then based in Carlsbad, with Damon Way and saw it become one of the top internationally recognized skate apparel brands. They sold the company in 2004, but Block maintained

ties with DC for years afterward.

Way said losing Block “has been like losing a part of myself,” and described him as a lifelong partner and mentor who shared his passion for chasing down big ideas and rewriting industry norms.

“The chapters we wrote together forged the foundation of our lives, transitioning us from inexperienced

transportation services for participants in the shortterm, intensive training program.

• The City of Encinitas will receive $4 million for the Leucadia Streetscape Drainage Improvements project.

The section of Coast Highway 101 traversing Leucadia is relatively flat and lies at a low point between a rail corridor and coastal bluffs.

The drainage infrastructure on Coast Highway needs to be improved to handle moderate storm events.

This project would fund new drainage infrastructure with pipes up to 66 inches in diameter to address longstanding flooding through the corridor that leaves ponding on the highway and negatively impacts local residences and businesses.

• Oceanside is set to receive $34 million for the Loma Alta Creek Sewer Relocation project. The project will relocate a sewer main from a creek bed to a roadway, minimizing the chance of environmental damage in the event of a sanitary sewer overflow.

According to Levin, the project will renew the pipeline and minimize the

risk of sewer spills into a waterway. Levin said it would also protect and improve aquatic resources and water quality in the Loma Alta Creek, a Clean Water Act-listed waterway.

• Solana Beach will receive $7 million for Lomas Santa Fe Drive to improve modern multi-modal infrastructure for pedestrian and cyclist safety and vehicular traffic calming.

The overall objective of the community project funding request is to transform this automobile-oriented roadway into a more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly corridor by constructing a multi-use trail, widening sidewalks, extending curbs, improving Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance, improving signal timing to increase pedes -

trian and driver awareness, and reducing congestion.

The multi-modal transportation corridor will allow residents, students, commuters, and visitors to more safely travel by bicycle, foot, automobile, or transit to two community shopping centers, schools, offices, and community facilities, Levin said.

• Vista will receive $2.231 million for its Side -

walk Improvement and Enhanced Street Lighting Project. The money will help fund the installation of frontage improvements to enhance safety and improve multimodal transportation access along the south side of Nevada Avenue, from N. Santa Fe Avenue to Lemon Avenue, and the east side of Lemon Avenue, from Nevada Avenue to Raintree Place.

Specific improvements include road widening and new curbs, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant corner ramps, restriping roads and crosswalks, and installing new lights.

• The North County Transit District will receive $7 million for its Sprinter Corridor Service Improvement Project. Funds would complete the design of phase two of the project, which will modernize the Sprinter signal system.

The broader project seeks to increase the frequency of service from 30-minute headways to 15-minute headways by improving the rail signals and double tracking 9.5 miles along the corridor.

• San Diego County will receive two grants, one for $4.48 million for its Mobile Crisis Response Team and one for $3.75 million to purchase a twin-engine

firefighting helicopter. The requested funding would enhance mobile crisis response by adding overnight and weekend coverage for four mobile crisis teams seven days per week.

Each unit comprises one clinician, one case manager, and one peer and administrative support specialist and would cost $1.12 million, including salaries, benefits, and associated operational/indirect costs.

A twin-engine helicopter allows for firefighting day and night and increases the amount of water deployed with each drop. In cases of engine failure, a single engine significantly increases the risk to the crew and anyone being hoisted during a rescue.

According to Levin, there are also over 100,000 structures in the designated high-fire risk area in the county. As a result, more than 80% of the area qualifies as a disadvantaged community.

These forests and communities have suffered from devastating wildfires, and fire risk is only getting more severe. During the past two decades, he said that over 600,000 acres have burned, nearly 5,000 homes have been destroyed, and dozens of lives

OCEANSIDE — With an increase in catalytic converter thefts in Oceanside and throughout San Diego County, the Oceanside Police Department issued a series of tips this week for residents to prevent such crimes.

A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device that converts toxic gases and pollutants in exhaust gas from internal combustion engines into less-toxic pollutants.

The rhodium, palladium and platinum precious metals used in converters are valuable. Rhodium can sell for $20,000 per ounce, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau.

Police suggested residents help deter thefts by taking steps such as:

• Park in a garage or well-lit area if a garage is not available.

• Have your catalytic converter welded to your car.

• Park near building entrances or in high-traffic areas.

• Calibrate your vehicle security system to detect vibration.

• Purchase cameras that clearly capture where you park.

• Purchase a security device for your catalytic converter. Cat Strap and Cat Clamp devices both cost less than $200.

• Stay vigilant and report suspicious activity.

Catalytic converter thefts are expected to grow by 30% over the next two years, police said.

Vehicles generally targeted by catalytic converter thieves include Honda Fit (Jazz), Toyota Prius, Toyota Corolla (Auris), Lexus RX, Toyota Coma, Ford F150-F550, Ferrari F430, Dodge 2500 and Kia

Sedona.

Police said services and products are widely available on the market to secure and deter converter thefts, and residents were urged to talk to a mechanic about what is best for your vehicle.

As part of a new theft-prevention initiative launched last spring, Oceanside Police arranged its first “catalytic converter etching” in March 2022 in partnership with Len’s Auto Body.

During the free event, police officers etched individual license plate numbers into 90 vehicles, a protective measure to help trace stolen parts back to their rightful owners.

“Etching events will aid officers and investiga tors in locating victims and provide them an opportu nity to reunite their vehi cle with its stolen catalytic converter,” said Jennifer Atenza, public information officer for Oceanside Po lice.

“Unless you find the exact stolen catalytic con verter and match it to the victim’s vehicle, it is a fed eral crime to attach it to an other vehicle.”

Serializing converters will also aid recyclers in identifying potential stolen catalytic converters. Sus pects who are in possession of catalytic converters that have intentionally defaced the serial number are sub ject to prosecution for Cal ifornia Vehicle Code 10802 which is a felony.

Oceanside Police De partment plans to have more catalytic converter etching events in the fu ture and continues to part ner with the San Diego Sheriff’s office at etching events in San Marcos and Vista.

Last summer, Det.

Chris James, of the Oceanside Police Department, created the Catalytic Converter Initiative, a joint agency effort with the goal of stopping catalytic converter thefts.

Catalytic converter thefts have become a nationwide problem in the last two years, having increased by over 700% in Oceanside alone by over 400% throughout San Diego County.

Those victimized by catalytic converter thefts can report the crime to Oceanside PD at 760-4354911 to file a police report.

Sharp Memorial Hospital offers advanced treatments for cardiac diseases

Taking care of your heart is vital to your overall health.

At Sharp Memorial Hospital, an expert team of cardiologists, cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeons, electrophysiologists, and nurse practitioners provides San Diegans with comprehensive heart and vascular care.

One expert, Karl Limmer, MD, is passionate about expanding minimally invasive options to treat cardiac diseases, including irregular heartbeats and mitral valve disease.

Innovative procedures to treat irregular heartbeats

Atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib, is a common and serious heart condition contributing to about 158,000 annual deaths in the U.S.

An expert in advanced minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Limmer is expe -

rienced in procedures to treat irregular heartbeats caused by AFib, including

the hybrid maze procedure.

This two-stage technique combines surgery with catheter ablation performed by an electrophysiologist — both done through small incisions in the chest.

Due to the highly specialized nature of this procedure, it is offered at only a handful of hospitals in California, including Sharp Memorial.

The hybrid maze procedure can restore the normal heart rate in patients, stop congestive heart failure, help reduce or stop the use of heart medications, and dramatically improve a patient's quality of life.

Minimally invasive robotic heart surgery

Mitral valve disease, the most common heart

valve abnormality, impacts 5% to 10% of the U.S. population. This disease makes it harder for the heart to pump blood effectively, and can lead to heart failure and cardiac arrest.

Dr. Limmer is one of the few cardiothoracic surgeons in San Diego performing minimally invasive, robotic-assisted mitral valve repair. He has seen firsthand the immense benefits of these procedures and is passionate about expanding minimally invasive options for patients.

“Heart surgery has contributed to improved patient outcomes, less pain and allows patients to return to activities quickly,” he said. “With this technology, we can offer our patients all of the advantages of open heart surgery with-

out opening the chest.”

In addition to minimally invasive procedures, Sharp Memorial offers many treatment options for cardiac diseases, including:

• Left atrial appendage closure devices (Watchman™ and Amulet™)

• Catheter ablation

• Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs)

• Heart transplant

• Pacemakers

• Cardiovascular rehabilitation

• Clinical trials

Sharp has cardiology specialists across San Diego County focused on helping patients improve their heart health.

Salk helps reverse gut inflammation

LA JOLLA — A drug developed by Salk Institute researchers acts like a master reset switch in the intestines.

The compound, called FexD, has previously been found to lower cholesterol, burn fat, and ward off colorectal cancer in mice. Now, the team reports in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on December 12, 2022, that FexD can also prevent and reverse intestinal inflammation in mouse models of inflammatory bowel disease.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes both Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, is characterized by an excess of immune cells and inflammatory signaling molecules known as cytokines in the gut.

How to set the tone for your new year

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a wonderful holiday break where you had a chance to pause and connect with the ones you love.

As we turn the corner into 2023 we often reassess our goals and direction. It’s a time to pause and reflect on the last year.

In my home, peace, light, rebalance, and silly are the words my family members will be carrying into 2023.

If you have not yet set a tone for this year, please do so. Setting an intention for your path, year, and time is so important. It sets you up in a positive way that creates the right headspace to begin, lets the world know what your plans are, and provides a template for you to revisit daily to build your vision.

A great way to get started with this idea is journaling about the year you’ve had and then picking one area of your life, one word,

or one goal you want to work on. Then make sure your goal is reachable in the next year.

Lay out the small details in a plan for yourself to slowly meet this goal successfully over the next year. It takes about 2-3 months for a habit to really form and become a part of your routine.

Finally, tell someone about your plans so that you

stay accountable. This can be a friend, teacher, family member, therapist, coach, etc.

If you need additional structure for this exercise check out our Habit Tracker! https://www.4ntent.com/ store/p/4ntent-habit-tracker

1. Journal about the past year to reflect 2. Set an intention by picking a goal, word, or change

3. Lay out the details of your intention 4. Be patient with yourself and know you’ll make mistakes

5. Tell someone about your plans

When FXR detects a shift in bile acids at the beginning of a meal, it prepares the body for an influx of food by flipping on and off dozens of cel-

lular programs related to digestion, blood sugar, and fat metabolism.

Evans’ group discovered that activating FXR can be used to ease symptoms in inflammation-driven diseases. When the researchers gave mice with IBD a daily dose of oral FexD, either before or after the onset of intestinal inflammation, the drug prevented or treated the inflammation.

When Alan Goldfarb, a wine journalist for several wine media magazines, including Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast, and a public relations consultant reached out to us to try Paso Robles-based Cordant Winery, it was an easy yes!

Cordant’s brand director Evan Taylor, and Rachel Khan, media relations man-

ager, were visiting San Diego and wanted to do a tasting with Frank and me to share their wines. With Del Mar’s Beeside Balcony fresh in our minds from a recent review, we decided to meet Taylor and Khan there for lunch.

Cordant is an urban winery located in Paso Robles. The winery has a second label, Nelle, that is being combined into the Cordant brand. With vast amounts of land still available to grow estate fruit in Paso, I asked Taylor why an urban vs. estate winery.

“My parents, David and DeAnn Taylor, founded Cordant Winery in 2014 to produce pinot noir and Rhone-

style wines that would become favorites in their cellar and to hopefully be able to share with friends, family, and even customers,” Taylor said. “They were risk averse and wanted to source premium fruit to make exceptional wines with prestigious brand recognition. My father is organized and conducts quarterly tastings with notes and trends to help achieve our goal of exceptional wines.”

Cordant produces about 3,000 cases a year from vineyards that stretch 180 miles up and down California's Central Coast, including Bien Nacido (Santa Maria Valley), Santa Rita Hills, Paso, and Santa Lucia Highlands, to create its pinot, chardonnay, and Rhonestyle wines, such as syrah, mourvedre and GSM blends.

To raise the bar, Cordant recently brought on a new winemaker, 20-year Paso vet Scott Stelzle, who traveled over 10,000 miles during the hot 2022 harvest, overseeing the crush from Cordant’s vineyards.

Evan’s passion for Cordant Wine was infectious. You can tell he loves his position as he regularly travels, spreading the word on Cordant wines.

We started our tasting with two 2020 pinot noirs.

The first was the Solomon Hills, sourced from Santa Maria Valley. The cool,

foggy weather makes working with this grape tricky. The berries and clusters are smaller compared to the second pinot, Radian. The Solomon Hills was a more traditional pinot with earthiness, mushrooms and olive on the nose, and black currant fruit, cherry cola, and oak on the palate with good acidity.

The Radian is sourced from Sta. Rita Hills sees about 17 hours of sun during the growing season, creating more body and a deeper ruby-red garnet color than the Solomon Hills. The nose was more intense with hints of Dr. Pepper, baking spice, cranberry, and strawberry.

The palate was also more fruit-forward with clove, cherry, and a splash

of caramel with a touch of cigar. Cordant challenges customers to age the Radian for another three years before popping.

After the pinots, we had the 2019 Enz Vineyard Old Vine Mourvedre made from some of California’s oldest vines dating to 1887. The head-trained, deep vines allow for dry farming. Cordant is one of a few that sources from Enz Vineyards and cherishes this relationship.

On the nose, the mourvedre had black fruit and boysenberry. The palate also had black fruit with minerality leading to a long finish with a hint of tobacco, and is aged in 50% new French oak. Robert Parker awarded this beauty 95 points.

Next up was a 2019 grenache sourced from the west side of Paso Robles, along with Monterey County’s Coastview Vineyard in the Gabilan mountains. I liked the floral lavender nose. The palate had berry notes with a touch of orange citrus. Despite being a thin-skinned grape, this grenache had noticeable tannins on the finish. The 2019 grenache also earned a 95-point Robert Parker score.

Our last wine was the 2020 Pandemonium (syrah 85%, petite sirah 15%) blend sourced from three Paso Robles vineyards, including the Adelaida District and Templeton Gap for the syrah and the Highlands District for the petite sirah.

The fruit was picked for optimum ripeness based on the Brix scale, pH, and total acidity, cold-soaked for two days and retested. Once the numbers are perfect, fermentation starts for 25 days with the skins. Finally, the wine is gravity fed into barrels and aged 18 months before blend trials are bottled.

The result is deep color along with floral tones of jasmine, boysenberry, clove, and vanilla on the nose, making this an excellent wine for the holidays with ham and turkey. More information at cordantwinery.com.

Winery tasting at Beeside Balcony in Del Mar

Ididn’t know it was New Year’s Eve when I sat down with my morning coffee. I knew we were close, but I honestly didn’t think it was already here.

When I found out, my first thought was, “Well, heck, I should add some holiday cheer to this cup of coffee.”

My second thought was, “Did I meet all my beer-drinking resolutions in 2022?”Let’s recap:

Drink Less Beer, but Drink Better Beer

I failed, yet succeeded. I did not drink less beer. I’d say I drank quite a bit more. However, it was consistently better beer. Primarily, this was because when I found an enjoyable beer — like Pure Project’s Rain Lager — I stuck with it. I drank it repeatedly.

Repeat

This means I achieved my second goal! I weened myself away from having Beer-Fomo. I wasn’t missing out on all the great beers I didn’t drink. I was living the dream and drinking great beer after great beer.

Leave My Beer Stereotypes Behind

This one focused chiefly on hazy beers. I’m sad to say my stereotype has mostly been reinforced over the past year. I’m sure good hazy beers exist.

I’ve even had a few, but I’ve learned that the wild variations in the style are too risky for my palate. I’m out…unless you know of one.

Be Brand Aware

The stories of toxic workplaces petered out in 2022. I don’t for a moment believe they don’t still exist, but I am willing to consider that things did get better. I think the brands that were already treating people well continued to do so, and a bunch of brands that weren’t necessarily toxic but weren’t top-notch upped their game.

Thank you to the brands working to be better or even great. Keep it up. Those are the brands I want to support with my consumer dollars and whatever platform this column allows.

Go to the source

Huge success! I went out to the source a billion percent more often in 2022.* More importantly, I connected with the essential people in my life. My wife and I already spent a boatload of time together, and the early days of COVID amplified that experience.

2023 New Year’s Beer Resolutions

Create experiences

This is inspired directly by the past few weeks in the mountains. Each night I would make a batch of peppermint schnapps and hot chocolates, and my wife and I would wander the early evening looking at the holiday lights. Some nights it snowed. Some nights we walked and shared the lights via video chat with our family.

Even now, I’m smiling, remembering the connectedness and warmth I felt (despite the cold). In 2023, I’ll resolve to create more experiential drinking opportunities.***

Make more toasts

Toasts can be self-indulgent or seem pretentious, but I hope that by making more toasts — the simpler, the better. I’ll attempt to create more opportunities

for myself and those I raise a pint with to appreciate the moment. If only for a brief time, we’ll collectively drink with intention.

Celebrate the makers

When I find a brewer, distiller, or winemaker I like, I’ll make more of an effort to share them with fellow imbibers who may love them too. I hope not to scream widely into the void but rather to target my recommendations more efficiently than your favorite social media platform.

Nate loves Mexican-style lagers and people who follow their dreams. I bet he’ll love Del Mar’s Viewpoint Brewing’s Mexican Tornado.

Beyond the taste, a portion of the proceeds is ded-

icated to getting local offroad motorcycle rally racer Edgar Cota to the Dakar Rally — “The holy grail of rally races.”

I encourage you to make a few drinking resolutions of your own. At the very least, take an extra moment while drinking to appreciate that someone combined a bunch of strange things and then put it in their mouth. What a hero.

*** I do not condone the violation of any alcohol-related laws, especially open container laws.

Coffee with intention

Idrank so, so much coffee over the past year.

I visited more than 50 different coffee shops and roasters, and many of those I stopped by more than once (Looking at you, Steady State and Zumbar).

I worked hard to expand my palate by tasting coffee across a wide spectrum of roasts and flavor profiles. I even started drinking more medium-dark, or even dark roasts, which the coffee snob buried deep in my hippocampus had eschewed.

Not only was I drinking them, but I was also enjoying them! I credit Ascend Roasters for getting me started down that path.

Most importantly, I met a bunch of really lovely coffee people in cafes

and through the Roast! West Coast coffee podcast, which I host and produce.*

Meeting people — old friends and strangers alike — over coffee is one of my favorite things. In order to inspire a better (if that is even possible) 2023 coffee experience, I’ve come up with a list of coffee resolutions to kick off the new year.

More coffee drinks

This seems obvious. I’ll drink more coffee, but what I am referring to are the things on the menu at the coffee shop beyond batch-brewed black coffee. Those simple coffees will likely always be my favorite.

I’m drinking one from

Bean Journal

Coffee Cycle Roasting right now...but the more I go beyond that to try other coffee offerings, the more I find my taste buds being rewarded.

In 2023, I’ll be drinking more lattes, cappuccinos, seasonal drinks, and more. To clarify, I’m not giving up the black drips. I’ll be ordering two drinks instead of just one.

Celebrate the producers

I’m already regularly celebrating excellent local coffee roasters for the artistry and magic they perform, turning a green coffee bean into a delicious tasting drink, but those beans had to come from a farm somewhere.

I’m aware of the supply chain that brings a coffee bean from a far-off place like Vietnam, Colombia, or Ethiopia to the United States.

We’ve all seen the news reports featuring container ships lined up outside the Long Beach harbor. Yet, I’m somehow disconnected from understanding the relationship between roaster and farmer.

In 2023, I’ll lean on my inquisitive nature to ask more questions about the origins of the coffee I drink.

Coffee with intention

Coffee is more than just a caffeine injection facilitation beverage.

Okay, sometimes it is purely a good way to jumpstart my limbs in the morning, but too often, I find myself drinking mindlessly.

Despite the way we’ve treated it over the past century, coffee is a luxury. Increasing supply chain costs, coffee production consolidation, and the impacts of climate change will only amplify that claim.

In 2023, at least sometimes, I’ll turn the phone over, close the laptop, and enjoy my coffee with all of my senses (I’ll get hearing in there somehow).

Outside the cup

Coffee products have proliferated widely. What other ways can I experience coffee without drinking it? I’m going to find out. I’ll try coffee-infused soap. I’ll eat a coffee whiskey cake made with First Light Coffee Whiskey or coffee flour.

Did you know that coffee grounds are being recycled into furniture? I didn’t. I wonder if it is any good. I’m going to find out.

One year from now, I’ll look back, hopefully with a smile, and review the path my coffee journey has traversed.

Beyond the coffee, my biggest hope is that the trails are populated with coffee friends. I encourage you to take a moment with your next cup of coffee to think about what you’re getting out of the coffee experience each day. How can you make it better in 2023?

If it’s Tuesday, it must be opening day

water spot

’Twas the day after Christmas and all through the beach, Good waves were breaking within everyone’s reach. The water was chilly, but sets could be found For locals and tourists and whoever was around.

You would think I would quit trying to get cute after getting called out for writing about my cats. But no.

Instead, here I am doubling down on cutesy by attempting surf poetry, something that has brought the axe down on many a surf journo’s career.

Okay, I’ll try to bust through my eggnog-induced haze on this New Year’s Day and get serious — serious being roughly the opposite of cute but equally silly since we are talking about surfing; only someone who receives a paycheck from it should take it seriously.

The topic today is opening day, a term I first heard in relation to surfing in the mid-1970s. I was surfing eight days a week, and among the faithful there was some discussion as to

what designated opening day.

The point would have been moot if surfing obeyed the rules of other sports and could be nailed down to a calendar.

The consensus among the regulars was that opening day was the first day of winter when waves were regularly ridden past the Swami’s lifeguard tower.

Not a bad way to measure the first winter swell, but there were those among us who argued with the method.

Allow me to pour gas on the fire by calling Tuesday, Dec. 27, opening day even though I realize that many who have surfed North County for decades will say it was just a decent north swell, hindered

by 57-degree water and a crowd of hungry surfers, many of whom were in the embryonic stages of the sport, and therefore proved to be a danger to themselves and others in the lineup.

Opening day or not, the sets poured in with double overhead frequency, weeding out the players from the posers after the tide dropped and the surf became faster and broke harder.

All the main breaks were choked off by surfers, many of whom hadn’t ridden a wave taller than a groundhog’s shadow for months. New Christmas presents opened sweet blue gifts sent from the north.

I was resting my noodled limbs after riding the

EAGLE SCOUT

cause you’re having so much fun.”

Rusty kneeboard Fish the day before. This generous gift from my friend Mark had my old bones aching and needing rest.

Dec. 26 was certainly not opening day, but was head-high, clean and a little too high tide. Being slammed onto the rocks is less fun than it sounds, but we managed to dodge the white water as we threaded the inside reef before paddling out to a decent little spot, just north of the main break.

Kneeboarding, which I consider a good alternative to 10-foot plus boards for those of us who still like getting wet, is harder than it seems.

First there is the submersion, up the chin, in frigid water. Then there is

the paddling and the positioning, something that will determine if you ride in a straight line or carve hard turns. Being new to the sport, I confess that I rode in a straight line.

Anyway, when the surf doubled in size the next day, I had the turning capacities of a tin soldier.

And that’s why I missed opening day, that moment that comes around this time each year when the Pacific, which had been sleeping for months, roars back to life, slaps us around a little but makes us glad that surfing chose us.

Happy New Year, all.

kids full of idealism, naivete and a relentless desire to tear down mediocrity in the face of innovation, to adults bearing the battlefield scars of experience spanning decades, and a precisely honed view of the domains we play in, and the ideas we bring to them,” Way said. “He will be dearly missed.”

DC Shoes also shared a statement on social media about Block’s impact.

“Ken Block was not only the co-founder of DC, but he was the personification of everything our brand stands for. Confidence. Creativity. Innovation. Pushing Boundaries. Colliding Worlds,” DC said.

“Our hearts and prayers are with Ken’s family and the many people in the global DC tribe whose lives he touched for nearly three decades. We simply

cannot overstate his impact or what a devastating loss this is.”

Block’s prolific rally career began in 2005, and in the following years he earned five X Games medals and became one of a handful of Americans to score points in the World Rally Championship in 2010.

Block was also active on social media and had millions of followers, dedicating his time to wildly popular content on YouTube.

At the time of his death, he raced for Hoonigan Racing, which he started in 2010.

“Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon,” Hoonigan said in a statement on its website. “And most importantly, a father and a husband. He will be incredibly missed.”

City News Service contributed to this report.

Primosch completed her Eagle Board of Review on Dec. 22 in Oceanside, fulfilling her final requirement to attain Eagle rank. The review involved presenting to a panel of leaders about her community service project — making cat toys for Rescue House, a cat rescue and adoption agency in San Diego — and certifying that she had met all other Eagle requirements, including earning the 21 needed merit badges.

All that remains now is for Primosch to hold an Eagle Scout Court of Honor to formally recognize and celebrate her accomplishment with family, friends and other scouts.

“I’ve wanted to be an Eagle Scout since I started with scouts. I wanted to do it to say I did it and get as much out of it as possible. You learn a lot about helping your community; you learn a lot about leadership,” Primosch said.

Troop 700, the female troop Primosch and her father, Tom, helped form back in 2019, started in Oceanside with around 10 members from across North County. According to her father, the troop has since moved to the Vista Optimist Club, and membership has nearly doubled.

“It wasn’t until we found other people of sim-

ilar interest that we became a troop,” said Tom Primosch. “We are creating this troop from scratch. If [Allie] were a boy, she’d go, ‘where’s the local troop?’ But no, we had to find interested local people and an organization to host them.”

Tom is a former Boy Scout who served as a counselor for the engineering and cycling badges. He said he is very proud of his daughter’s hard work to get to Eagle and was happy to be involved in a troop that profoundly impacted local young women.

The fact that the troop is also woman-led, operating under the guidance of scoutmaster Karen Roberson, is also a considerable benefit, Tom said.

Troop 700 has graduat-

ed a handful of other Eagle Scouts from around North County, but Primosch is the first from San Marcos. She had to obtain 14 required merit badges, including first aid, citizenship and cooking, and seven other badges of her choice, such as amphibian and reptile studies.

For many high schoolers, managing schoolwork with fulfilling Eagle requirements is not easy, mainly due to all the paperwork it takes to fill out. However, Primosch said her family and friends' support helped her stick with it.

“I had a ton of people that were really excited for me,” she said. “That helped me get to the end. It was a lot to balance.”

For holiday travelers, lumps of coal

late. The Vista couple had flown to Boise to visit Prichard’s family.

The holiday from hell. That’s how many will remember Christmas 2022.

A history-making blizzard, record-low temperatures, antiquated airline computer systems and the urge to be with loved ones after two COVID Christmases all aligned to create the perfect storm.

Consider the plight of Leola Powers of Vista.

Her disastrous homeward-bound tale is epic. The nearly weeklong saga starts Dec. 25 at Nashville International Airport after visiting family.

“I had Christmas breakfast with my mother in Nashville and planned to have Christmas dinner with my husband in Vista,” said the MiraCosta College professor.

Powers’ complicated narrative includes hopes raised and dashed; four airline tickets, three of them for canceled flights; flight crews that didn’t (and couldn’t) show; mistimed and erroneous texts from Southwest Airlines; two rental car reservations; and finally, a two-day, 28-hour, 2,000-plus-mile drive from Nashville to Vista, with an overnight in El Paso.

“If you do the math, you’ll know I was speeding,” she confessed, “but I was motivated.”

Powers arrived home Dec. 30.

One idea she contemplated then rejected was a one-way ticket to San Diego from Nashville on American Airlines for $2,818. Nevertheless, she still racked up $2,500 in expenses, despite “buying cheap” the necessities she needed because her luggage had disappeared. As of 3 p.m. Jan. 1, Powers had not yet been reunited with her suitcase.

Nikki Prichard and Robert Hetherington consider themselves lucky. They still made it home Christmas Day, although seven hours

“It was about 1:30 p.m. when they notified us that they were waiting on the crew for the 1:40 p.m. flight with Southwest,” Prichard said. “We sat around for a while before (the gate attendant) told us they didn’t know how long it would be, and (said), ‘If it were me, I’d go back home.’”

Nevertheless, the couple stayed and a crew finally appeared.

“By this time, probably half of the other passengers had gone home,” Prichard said. “The worst part was the lack of communication, but we were so happy to have a flight. We finally got home at 10 p.m. It could’ve been worse.”

They celebrated Christmas the following day with leftovers and gifts with Hetherington’s family.

Larry Dyke and Lor-

raine Farrar were optimistic about their flight from San Diego to Nashville when they left their Vista home Christmas Day.

“We were sitting waiting and the plane pulled up to the gate,” Dyke said. “Then they told us it had been canceled. They wouldn’t help us (rebook) at the gate. We had to go and check out our bags, then get in the reservation line again. We looked at the line. It was a two- to three-hours’ wait, so we went home.”

Before leaving, they had to retrieve their luggage from a sea of bags and parcels set out on every square inch of the airport’s open space and in no particular order.

Back home, Dyke connected both his and his wife’s cellphone to chargers, then called Southwest.

“I stayed up all night

Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

NOTICE OF PETITION

TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF KIMBRA LISA CAMPBELL Case# 37-2022-00048766PR-LA-CTL

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

A Petition for Probate has been filed by Brett Stewart Campbell, in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego. The Petition for Probate

requests that Brett Stewart Campbell be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

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

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: February 15, 2023; Time: 1:30 PM; in Dept.: 502, Room: Judge John B. Scherling. 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

San Marcos man arrested in Carlsbad bank robbery

Suspect awaits sentencing in 2nd case

REGION — A man who allegedly robbed a Carlsbad bank while out on bail and awaiting sentencing in a separate federal bank fraud case was arrested Dec. 30.

Steven Struhar, 24, of San Marcos, is suspected in the Dec. 21 robbery of a US Bank on Carlsbad Village Drive.

Police said that on the afternoon of Dec. 21, Struhar allegedly entered the bank, demanded money from the teller, and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money. He was arrested near his residence by Carlsbad police.

At the time of the robbery, Struhar had been out of custody on bail and was awaiting sentencing in the United States District Court, Southern District of California on federal charges of bank fraud and making false statements, according to the Carlsbad Police Department.

Court records list only one defendant matching the name Steven Struhar in the Southern District of California, who is slated for sentencing in April for bank fraud and making false statements.

According to his plea agreement in the federal

Highlights from 2022 Anger Management

Tennessee state Rep. Jeremy Faison, 45, had to be ejected from the stands at a high school basketball game in Johnson City on Jan. 4 after he became angry at a referee and tried to “pants” him — pull down his trousers. Faison’s son was playing on the Lakeway Christian Academy team, NBC News reported. Later, Faison tweeted: “Totally lost my junk and got booted from the gym. ... I hope to be able to find the ref and ask for his forgiveness. I was bad wrong.” Our advice to referees everywhere: Always wear a belt. [NBC News, 1/6/2022]

Government at Work

In the United Kingdom, as of Jan. 29, flouting a new highway code rule will cost you up to 1,000 pounds, the Mirror reported. The rule requires someone inside a car to open the door with the hand farthest from the door, employing a technique known as the Dutch Reach. In other words, if you’re driving (on the right side of the car), you would use your left hand to reach around and open the car door. (The technique is borrowed from the Netherlands, thus the name.)

Rule 239 reads: “This will make you turn your head

case, Struhar contacted the Russian Embassy last year and claimed he was a member of the U.S. Treasury Department.

He later met with someone he believed was a Russian government representative — but was actually an undercover federal agent — and told this person he had a “Top Secret security clearance” and “offered to provide classified information regarding sanctions imposed by the U.S. Government on Russia,” court documents state.

The plea agreement states he was interested in being compensated for this information, but didn’t end up continuing his communications with the supposed Russian government representative.

Prosecutors allege he later made false statements to FBI investigators, telling them he had worked for the Treasury Department, as well as the Manchester Financial Group.

The plea agreement states he never worked for either entity.

The plea agreement also states Struhar deposited two fraudulent checks totaling more than $85,000 into his bank account earlier this year.

Wait, What?

Cameron Newsom, 42, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was treated for stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma on her tongue in 2013, the New York Post reported. Removing the tumor meant also removing part of her tongue, which doctors replaced with skin and muscle taken from her thigh. Through all of her experiences in treating the cancer, she said, “The weirdest part ... was when I felt a rough texture on the ‘thigh’ part of my tongue — and when I looked in the mirror, it had started growing leg hair!” Newsom had to learn to speak again and still finds eating a challenge, but she’s back to being a gymnastics coach, even with her fuzzy tongue.

The clown was holding a lighted candle, and on the reverse, a Bible verse was inscribed: “Let your light shine. Matthew 5:16.” Mark contacted friends, neighbors and family members to see if it was a prank, or if others had received a clown, but no one had experienced anything similar. He threw the clown away, but remains creeped out: “It’s so unsettling.” [Belfast Telegraph, 1/26/2022]

Thanks for Nothing!

Catherine Graham of Marshfield, Massachusetts, recently cashed in on her 15 minutes of fame on “The Price Is Right” with host Drew Carey. She flew to Los Angeles to visit her daughter and attended a taping of the show, which aired on Feb. 1. As luck would have it, Graham ended up on stage with Carey and played for a great trip — to New Hampshire! When Carey gushed, “New Hampshire is beautiful!” Graham replied, “Drew, I live in Boston! I’ve been to New Hampshire a million times!” But wait, there’s more! In order to collect the prize

Kristen Armstrong’s husband, a pilot for a major airline (not Southwest), got stranded in Buffalo after several delays and cancellations that kept both checking and rechecking airline apps.

“It was a lot of yo-yoing,” said Armstrong, a Pacific Beach resident. “I felt like a bungee cord. I cried a lot.”

Her husband not only missed Christmas with his wife and children, but his mother had flown from Boston to San Diego to be with the family.

Some romantic relationships are full of drama and strife, so maybe Sandra, 28, of Budapest, Hungary, has come up with a better model. According to Oddity Central, Sandra has fallen for Luffancs, a plastic model of an airplane. After breaking up with her latest human boyfriend in January, Sandra bought Luffancs for $660 and fell madly in love. “I don’t know why I love him, I just love him,” she said. Sandra works in the aviation industry and is around airplanes every day, but says she will never cheat on Luffancs. In fact, she doesn’t know if she’ll ever date another human being. “Planes are more reliable as partners,” she said. [Oddity Central, 3/10/2022]

It’s a Dirty Job ...

In Australia, Queensland’s Bill Edgar is known to some as the Coffin Confessor. As such, Edgar shows up at funerals and speaks for the deceased, telling off family members, setting friends straight and delivering bad news about beneficiaries, News.com.au reported on April 14. But Edgar’s job doesn’t stop there. His services, for which he charges $2,000 to $10,000, have expanded to removing items from the deceased’s home that they’d rather the family not see: “Could be sex toys, messages of hate, love, whatever it is they’ve written down, that they want removed from their web browsers. One gentleman had ... a sex dungeon in one of his bedrooms. And that gentleman was 88 years of age, believe it or not,” Edgar said. He even delivers his services in the United States and United Kingdom, and he said Paramount has picked up the story for a movie. [news. com.au, 4/14/2022]

New state laws took effect Jan. 1

REGION — Hundreds of new laws passed in California in 2023 affect everything from protecting abortion and gender-affirming health care to legalizing jaywalking and banning the sale and manufacture of new fur clothing and accessories.

Here are a few of the new laws that took effect Jan. 1:

• SB 107, the intent of which is to make California a sanctuary state for transgender health, shielding transgender people, including youth and their parents, from legal action from states with bans and restrictions.

• Several reproductive health care-related measures responding to the U.S. Supreme Court decision last year to overturn federal abortion protections.

• AB 2963, passed in 2016, raises the state's minimum wage to $15.50.

• SB 1162 requires employers to make salary ranges available for job positions to applicants and employees, as well as setting new pay data reporting requirements based on gender and race.

• Paid family leave, SB 951, increases the share of paid family leave provided to lower-income Californians. It extends what was a temporary increase in the benefit from 55% of wages to 60% to 70% depending on income.

• SB 1228 relating to rape kits prohibits law enforcement agencies from using the DNA collected from a sexual assault victim from being used in the investigation of an unrelated crime.

• SB 1008 provides free phone calls to people detained in California prisons and jails.

• AB 2147 allows pedestrians to jaywalk, crossing the street outside of an intersection, without being ticketed as long as the crossing is done when it is safe to do so.

• AB 1287, the “Pink tax,” prohibits gender-based pricing on products based on who they are marketed toward.

• AB 44 passed in 2019 bans the sale and manufacture of new fur clothing and accessories. It does not apply to used fur products, leather, cowhide, faux fur or shearling.

• AB 1200 bans the sale, distribution and offering of any food packaging that contains toxic perfluoralkyl and polyfluoralkl substances, also know as PFAS, that have been detected in the drinking water supplies of major U.S. cities.

• SB 1044 prohibits an employer from taking or threatening adverse action against any employee for refusing to come to work, or leaving, if the employee has a “reasonable belief'' that the workplace or work site is unsafe.

Overwhelmed with S-T-U-F-F?

You’ve made the decision to downsize. You know it’s right for you, your family is supportive and encouraging, and so…you stand in the spare room, the closet, or the garage, looking around at all these things you love (and some you don’t) and suddenly you’re overwhelmed. The idea of figuring out what to keep, and what to do with the stuff you don’t, is daunting. You can’t imagine where you’ll even begin.

So many of us have more stuff than we truly need or even want, let alone know what to do with when we decide to start sorting through it. Unsurprisingly, this seems to be especially true of folks who have lived in their homes over 5 years, or 25+ years.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you begin the process.

What are your immediate plans?

Are you planning a move, and if so, will you be moving in the near future? Or, do you merely want to simplify a bit, declutter and streamline the space you’re already in?

What part of the project feels most overwhelming to you?

What in the world will you do with all the extra “stuff”? What are your options? Where do you start?

Final neighborhood of all-private memory care suites opens in January

SAN MARCOS — January 6 — Silvergate San Marcos — North County’s leading boutique-style retirement community — opens its sixth and final neighborhood in its dedicated Memory Care Suites building in January 2023. To celebrate having completed major renovations this year and mark the opening of the final collection all-private memory care suites, the community has announced a year-end savings program that will lock in one full year of 2022 pricing in the new year for families seeking care for loved ones living with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or memory loss.

A Proven Care Solution for Those Facing Memory Loss

“We understand what families face during the holidays as they return home to visit aging parents,” said David Nelson, Director of Marketing for the Silvergate San Marcos senior living community. “Often, the challenges of care become too much for families and having a proven care solution to turn to — like what we offer at Silvergate — can be a welcome relief for family members, especially when they have their own families to care for and are juggling their own obligations.”

This month, families can visit the community for a private tour, learn about how professional memory care is delivered at Silvergate and secure 2022 pricing on an all-private Memory Care Suite at Silvergate San Marcos through December 31st, representing a signifi cant savings in the new year.

For a loved one who may now need more specialized care and mind-nurturing activities than families can provide at home, the community’s award-winning care solution and innovative building design offer the peace of mind families are seeking at the holiday season and throughout the year.

Dedicated Building –Neighborhood Design

Unique to Silvergate, the dedicated Memory Care Suites building was designed specifi cally for seniors managing the challenges associated with impaired memory. The building houses six distinct “neighborhoods,” each made up of private and shared rooms oriented towards common living and dining room spaces. The neighborhood design takes a more personalized, homelike approach to care and provides residents with an easy-to-navigate building fl oorplan.

Each neighborhood has an adjacent, themed Activity Room that has been renovated, giving res-

idents a variety of destinations each day for activities and events, including an arts and craft room, a music room, a quiet reading room and a sunroom.

These spaces help provide residents with an opportunity to connect with others and engage in regular activities every day such as music therapy, wellness classes, brain teasers and group conversation. These upgraded Activity Rooms come online with an all-new roster of therapeutic and inspiring activities for residents who are living with the challenges associated with dementia and memory loss.

“We’re here to support residents, their families and the community as they look for viable solutions to care for loved ones who are coming to terms with a dementia diagnosis,” said Janet Mangaya, Director of Resident Care at Silvergate San Marcos. “Our team has a fi rm grasp on how cognitive defi cit works, understands how to control emotions and is specially trained to provide the most effective care techniques that bring meaningful moments for those challenged by memory loss. We’ve helped countless families on their journey to understanding and coping with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.”

Proven Experience & Award-Winning Care

The seasoned team of nurses, medical technicians and caregivers deliver the highest levels of care with the greatest degree of dignity, respect, and sensitivity, according to Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for the Silvergate San Marcos community.

“Our memory care services are unlike any other because we maintain an industry-leading caregivertoresident ratio with at least one caregiver for every six residents,” said Rink-Carroll, who has assembled a highly specialized team of nurses, caregivers and staff to operate the community’s memory care unit. “We believe having more eyes on fewer residents provides increased supervision and assures the safety and security of residents.”

New-Year Savings on All-Private Memory Care Suite Ends January 31st

To take advantage of Silvergate’s new-year savings program, book a tour today with David Nelson by calling 760-744-4484 or visit SilvergateRR.com. General information about the independent living, assisted living and memory care accommodations at Silvergate can be found at SilvergateRR.com/SM.
