SAN MARCOS — As COVID-19 cases soar across the region, North County residents trying to get tested for the virus are facing long lines and sometimes waiting several hours at local testing centers. RANCHO County health offiSFNEWS cials announced the highest number of coronavirus cases reported all year on Wednesday, Dec. 28, with 3,653 people testing positive for the virus. Demand for testing has surged as well — between the second and third weeks of December, there was a 45% increase in testing at county sites, according to Sarah Sweeney, a spokesperson for the county Health & Human Services Agency. Testing centers representatives in North County cities like San Marcos told The Coast News their resources have been strained by the overwhelming increase in demand for testing. Some locations are reporting longer than ever lines, staff being stretched thin by the demand, and those forced to wait often lashing out in frustration over the delays. “People are getting really upset over testing. … I’ve definitely had multiple people who started screaming and yelling in my face, there’s just so much frustration over this,” said Rich Block, a customer service

State wildlife board grants $3M for lagoon restoration By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The Buena Vista Lagoon restoration project received a $3 million grant from the California Wildlife Conservation Board to push forward permitting, engineering and design plans. The project, which has been decades in the making, will remove a weir (dam) at the west end of the freshwater lagoon and create a channel connecting to the ocean to create a saltwater lagoon to combat aggressive vegetation officials have long said are choking the sustainability and viability of the lagoon.

Parents, locals frustrated over Capri intersection dangers By Stephen Wyer

ENCINITAS — Residents are outraged over a purportedly dangerous traffic intersection near Capri Elementary School, and some parents are growing increasingly frustrated by what they describe as the city’s lethargic response to an ongoing hazard. The intersection — situated at the crossing of Capri and Burgundy roads at the base of Capri Elementary — has been the source of safety complaints to the city for decades, with parents and locals having long argued for a four-way stop sign to be installed at the intersection. “It’s a really scary situation…as a parent of a nine-year-old and six-yearold who go to this school, I’m honestly enraged,” said parent and Encinitas resident Scott Runmark, who has publicly spoken out about the intersection previously in The Coast News. Runmark said that he became heavily involved in organizing parents concerned about the intersection after one of his own children was almost hit at the crossing over two years ago. Runmark, along with a host of other parents and neighborhood residents, claims that the lack of a four-way stop at the intersection creates confusion and chaos outside the school during busy student drop-off and pick-up times on weekdays. Since the intersection lies at the base of a hill, cars traveling westbound by the school pick up a tremendous amount of speed by the time they reach the crosswalk, creating a potential hazard for pedestrians. Additionally, when traffic backs up on Capri Road during peak hours, Runmark said that drivers going both west and eastbound regularly traverse into the opposite lane of traffic, illegally circumventing the long lines of cars that build up outside the school. Due to these illegal maneuvers, pedestrians at a designated crossing have to not only keep an eye on traffic coming from both directions but also have to worry about cars weaving around lanes to bypass traffic the wrong way. After repeated complaints from the community in 2019, the city installed a crosswalk at the location, but many believe that simply isn’t enough. “The crosswalk doesn’t really do anything, people just continue to speed down that hill, and you have cars blowing right through the intersection, no problem, not even stopping,” said Lani Miller, president of the Capri Elementary School teacher-parent association, who lives on Capri Road. Julie Taber, the city’s public information officer, said the city has received very few comments or complaints regarding safety along that particular road-

way. “Approximately five to seven comments have been made in the last two years in addition to the speed cushion petition,” Taber told The Coast News via email. “One resident has been to the Traffic Commission twice in the last six months to speak on it, accompanied by a couple other neighbors sending written public comments. We got two emails about it right before the holiday as well. Current staff was not here prior to 2019 and therefore are not certain how many concerns we received before that.” For Stacey, a mom of two who lives less than a block away from the school, the crossing has long been a concern. She said that she’s personally witnessed numerous incidents with children, adults, and even strollers in the crosswalk almost being hit by cars traveling at high speeds. But the issue became deeply personal when Stacey says that her six-yearold son was almost hit by a fast-traveling SUV at the intersection just two weeks ago. “(My son) did exactly what he was supposed to do, he went up to the light function at the crosswalk, looked both ways, and then started to walk,” Stacey said. “Then as I was coming with him, I saw a white escalade coming westbound picking up speed, the dad driving was on his phone and didn’t see my son, so my son jumped back and I screamed before the car stopped…everyone around was horrified and stopped what they were doing.” Outraged by the incident, Stacey said she immediately sent letters to the school principal and the Encinitas Traffic and Public Safety Commission, asserting the need for stop signs at all four corners of the intersection. “I asked them what do you expect us to do as parents — like why is the burden put on our children to stay safe when they’re doing everything they’re supposed to be doing?… Really the city is putting both parents and children in a des-

perate place,” Stacey said. Runmark, Miller and Stacey all argue that the problem of cars speeding and weaving through lanes at the crosswalk will only be permanently solved by four-way stop signs at Capri and Brunswick, as vehicles would be forced to come to a halt just before the intersection. For a four-way stop to be implemented, the city’s traffic commission would need to recommend the improvement to the Encinitas City Council, which would then have to vote to approve funding for a project. With decades of complaints about the crossing being largely ignored, however, the three residents expressed little optimism that any meaningful action would be taken. “This isn’t just a parent issue, it’s a neighborhood issue,” Stacey said. “People are really frustrated that the city won’t do anything about this, it’s creating an

environment that is the opposite of what the City of Encinitas is supposed to be about…I’m just disappointed and shocked at the city’s

failure to take action.” The city’s traffic engineering division conducted a study of the crossing in the summer of 2021 to evaluate whether the convergence of the two roads met city criteria for fourway stop control. The federal guidance for the city’s study included requiring a minimum number of crashes in a 12-month period to determine whether a multiway stop installation is warranted at that particular location. However, because of the relatively low volume of vehicles traversing the crossing over the course of the day, coupled with the intersection not meeting the criteria for having had enough traffic collision history, city engineers ultimately decided against the idea of a four-way stop. According to a city spokesperson, the Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, or MUTCD, outlines protocols

for municipalities to determine if a stop sign is necessary at a given location. “This ensures traffic control devices are generally consistent in the United States and meet drivers’ expectations,” said Taber. “Standards are not set locally. This intersection was evaluated based on the (manual’s) warrant standards and did not meet the criteria warranting stop signs. The Mobility and Traffic Safety Commission is an advisory commission that reviews the recommendations of the City’s traffic engineering staff. Traffic Engineering staff members follow the practices and standards set forth by the MUTCD.” The city also noted there have been no collisions over the last 10 years at the intersection of Capri and Burgundy, according to the Local Roadway Safety Plan.

Running on revisionist history

W

ith state Senate stakes high for Encinitas Mayor Blakespear, she cannot rely on her actual record to get elected and instead has resorted to creating an alternate history to bolster her image. Her revision of history started with the Cardiff Rail Trail and her flipflop of its location on the east or west side of the tracks, and the embarrassment of having both SANDAG and the Coastal Commission disagree with her. Last year’s loss in court when she sued Encinitas residents over Prop A further prompted her to begin changing the actual history of events to create a false and distorted record of her performance as mayor. A review of “Catherine’s Top 10 of 2021” exposes her revisionist history on every single one of her “accomplishments.” Let’s take a look: 10. ‘Started our innovative organics recycling program’

Revision: “Encinitas embraced this program from the start, offering kitchen caddies and free compostable green waste bags to help with immediate adoption.” Reality: This is a state-mandated program through local EDCO, not something she can take credit for — unlike her agreement to increase fees for the same level of service as EDCO provided previously. 9. ‘Adopted stronger shortterm rental regulations’

Revision: “We also strengthened the regulations to make it clearer how to enforce consequences when there are problem STVRs.” Reality: STVR regulations were adopted only after extreme, years-long public pressure to do something about repeat offender rentals. 8. ‘Switched to renewable, cleaner energy for all’

Revision: “Encinitas adopted 100% renewable energy as the default electricity source for all customers … to wean our future buildings off their

dependence on fossil fuels.” Reality: The program still goes through SDG&E, so adding a middleman means effective rates will be higher. 7. Created new, safer ways to walk and bike

Revision: “This continues our commitment to reconsider how public space is used to make it easier, safer and more pleasant to choose to go somewhere without a car.” Reality: More than two dozen accidents on her “improved” Cardiff Cycle Track occurred after its installation on a formerly safe road. The mayor calls serious injuries that required hospitalization “anecdotes.” Last year’s cyclist death on Leucadia Blvd. from dangerously placed bollards that have since been removed. Nothing “safer and more pleasant” about either. 6. Reopened businesses and public places

bors face blocked driveways and bad behavior exhibited by some park goers. At one point a security guard was considered. 3. Relocated our successful Safe Parking Program

Revision: “I’m proud that we've done the right thing, and have the political courage to host it at a city-owned site.” Reality: Decided in secret with neighbors, area schools and churches in the dark, the mayor repeated her Saxony lot backroom deal, inviting more backlash and a lawsuit. 2. Crafted inventive housing plan, ‘agrihood’

Revision: “For the first time in our city’s history, the Encinitas City Council approved an on-time Housing Plan that encourages the building of affordable homes for those who make lower incomes.” Reality: This developer’s dream plan was forced over public opposition and includes pathetically low amounts of affordable housing. The “agrihood” falls a whopping 207 affordable units short vs. the mayor's promises. If by “inventive” the mayor means skirting the intent of affordable housing law to disadvantage lower-income earners, then the word fits.

Revision: “As rapidly and safely as possible, we reopened our city’s businesses, schools, beaches and parks…restored important community events like the Holiday Parade.” Reality: Reopening was controlled by the state and again, not something the mayor can take credit 1.

It’s also important to note how different this year feels. Last year in January the circumstances felt truly dire. We were in an indefinite lockdown, with vaccines barely available.

5. Memorialized Hubbard and welcomed Lyndes

Early last year, our beloved former City Councilmember Jody Hubbard was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer, and she passed away in June. She was known for her love of the outdoors and for improving ways to walk, bike and run in Encinitas. Jody was not only a force of nature, she was a force for nature. Jody’s seat on the Encinitas City Council was filled by the capable landscape architect Joy Lyndes. 4. Opened Olympus Park, our new Encinitas gem

In May, we opened our new three-acre Olympus Park in Leucadia, created on a hillside east of I-5. The designers included whimsical play structures, a dog park, a zipline area, basketball and pickleball courts, a skate area, a pump track for bikes, skateboards and scooters, and a yoga stretching area. Olympus Park also sports walking paths, a gazebo, a botanical garden and 76 newly planted trees!

In 2021, our residents and businesses started recycling their food waste into green bins for processing, instead of being buried in landfills.

The city continued to prioritize biking and walking projects, including approval of a new two-way cycle track on the west side of Highway 101 between downtown Encinitas and Cardiff, and improvements along Vulcan Ave and El Camino Real. We continue to reconsider how public space is used to make it easier, safer and more pleasant to choose to go somewhere without a car. 6. Reopened businesses and public places

As rapidly and safely as possible, we reopened our city’s businesses, schools, beaches and parks. We also restored important community events like the Holiday Parade and Dia de Los Muertos and art night celebrations. Among the many assists that were offered, we supported local businesses by letting them use the city’s

ing plan, ‘agrihood’

For the first time in city history, the City Council approved an on-time Housing Plan that encourages the building of affordable homes for those who make lower incomes. Based on this successful plan, we approved the city’s first “agrihood” in Leucadia, Fox Pointe Farms. 1. Reinvented Highway 101 with Leucadia Streetscape

In 2021, we broke ground on the city’s largest infrastructure project, a complete overhaul of Highway 101 through Leucadia, and continued construction on a new pedestrian railroad undercrossing in Old Encinitas at El Portal. When finished, it'll be easier to get to the beaches by foot or bike, and the Coast Hwy in Leucadia will be much more walkable and family-friendly. As we begin 2022, my heartfelt appreciation goes to our City Councilmembers, city staff, and the generous people of Encinitas for working together to improve our paradise during these many difficult months. We should be proud of what we’ve accomplished together. Catherine Blakespear is the mayor of Encinitas.

Encinitas to open cannabis registration

Man pleads guilty for Vista ‘crack house’

By Bill Slane

By City News Service

VISTA — A man who maintained a “drug-involved premises” at his Vista property, which prosecutors said led to rampant crime in and around the North County home, pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges. Sean Terrence Sheeter, 73, was arrested in March of 2020 during a raid of his multi-acre Poinsettia Avenue property. Prosecutors charged Sheeter with a violation of the federal “Crack House statute,” which targets people who knowingly maintain a property where illegal drugs are manufactured, distributed and used. Prosecutors alleged Sheeter “allowed gang members, drug dealers and users to stay at the property,” resulting in a slate of arrests and calls to police. From 2017 until just before the raid occurred, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department received 53 separate calls regarding the home, including reports of stolen vehicles, thefts, disturbance calls, burglaries, grand thefts, armed suspicious persons, vandalism, and threats with a weapon, authorities said. During that time, 22 arrests were made — mostly for drug possession and stolen vehicles — and seven citations were issued at the property, which officials say is about 100 feet from an elementary school. According to a search warrant affidavit, the investigation into Sheeter's property stemmed from an investigation into drug sales in the North County area by local gang members, who allegedly distributed narcotics like heroin and methamphetamine smuggled out of Mexico. Several suspects targeted in the investigation lived and operated out of Sheeter’s home, according to the document. Sheeter is set to be sentenced in April. As part of his plea agreement, the home will be sold and proceeds from the sale will be forfeited to the federal government. “This property is no longer a drug-laden refuge for violent felons, gang members, drug dealers and drug users,” said U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman in a statement. “We will continue to use every tool we have to bring safety to our community.”

CLEAN ENERGY ALLIANCE’S “Green Impact” product, a 100% renewable energy option, will now be higher than SDG&E by nearly $2 after generation costs jumped 8.18% from last year. Courtesy graphic

Slight rate increases coming to CEA customers  CEO: Some rates still lower than SDG&E’s By Steve Puterski

REGION — Rate increases are coming for Clean Energy Alliance customers after the organization approved new rates during its Dec. 30 meeting. Under the new rate schedule, the average customer in Carlsbad and Del Mar will see a 3.34% increase in their total bill for 2022. According to CEO Barbara Boswell, the CEA rates will still be lower than San Diego Gas & Electric by 0.82% for the Clean Impact tier, a 50% clean energy option and CEA’s lowest source of green and clean energy. Boswell described the new rate for Clean Impact using an average monthly bill. According to the example, the average residential CEA customer in Carlsbad and Del Mar would pay $119.91 per month, while SDG&E customers under the utility’s minimum renewable power supply of 31.3% would pay $120.90. However, changes in SDG&E’s delivery charges were not calculated as those have not been released, Boswell said. Depending on the action, the total bill for CEA customers could decrease, increase or remain as projected over what was presented during the meeting, she added. “We analyze our energy usage and calculate what our revenue would be based on those new rates,” Boswell said. “Our rates need to be set at a sufficient level to support our operations.” According to Helen Gao, a spokeswoman for SDG&E, the utility’s renewable power supply percentages — as reflected in its Power Content Label — dropped due to a rule

change in 2020 which no longer counts renewable energy credits as renewable procurement. Prior to the change, SDG&E’s renewable percentage was 42%. “It is important to understand the RPS percentage does not reflect our resource mix,” she added. “Rather it’s a ratio of renewable production divided by retail electricity usage.” Boswell said CEA customers will continue to see a 2% savings in generation, although the total bill savings is just 0.82%. CEA’s Clean Impact tier calls for using 50% clean energy. The average Solana Beach customer will see a small decrease in their overall bill of $0.39 per month. For example, the average 2021 bill in Solana Beach was $118.17 and 2022 is projected at $117.76. Those customers will save 2.6% on their total bill compared to SDG&E, Boswell said. Solana Beach customers are in a different “vintage,” or rate category, for their exit fees and are lower due to some expiring contracts from SDG&E. Last year, Solana Beach customers paid more for their lowest tier compared to SDG&E’s minimum offering and this year will realize a 2.6% savings in 2022, should delivery charges remain as presented. The delivery charge in 2021 was $71.26 and is what CEA used in its comparisons. In Carlsbad and Del Mar, the new rates for Clean Impact Plus, which is the default option for residents and business and provides 50% renewable and 75% carbon-free energy, will see a 3.65% increase on the average bill and 8.6% increase for generation compared to last year. The average bill is estimated to be $120.26 for CEA customers and $120.90 for SDG&E, according to a

breakdown provided by Boswell. The Green Impact product will now be higher than SDG&E by nearly $2 as generation costs jumped 8.18% from last year and the average total bill increases by 5.63%. Per the example, a CEA customer will pay $122.56 per month compared to $120.90 for SDG&E. In Solana Beach, the Clean Impact Plus rates will see a 0.35% decrease and with an overall bill total lower than SDG&E by 2.31%, or nearly $3 per month less. Last year, the default product was 1.25% more expensive than SDG&E. The Green Impact product also decreases by 0.34%, or $0.41, and will give customers a 0.41% savings, pending the status of the delivery charge. “I’m taking a limited view of this,” said Dave Druker of Del Mar. “I need, and the rest of the board needs, to hear more on the rates. The distribution fee … is most likely going to TURN TO RATES ON A15

ENCINITAS — The registration period for cannabis retail permits starts on Jan. 17 in Encinitas, helping prospective cannabis retailers take one step closer to opening their doors to the public. Businesses seeking one of the four retail cannabis business licenses — the city’s minimum requirement to issue under Measure H — will have to submit all documents to the city before 5 p.m. on Feb. 18. Applicant retailers will need to provide to the city their cannabis license registration form, financial materials and background check information, in addition to all other required forms. In 2020, Measure H was passed with 51% of the vote in Encinitas, allowing for the zoning and regulation of cannabis retail and cultivation. Encinitas residents also strongly supported Prop 64, a statewide initiative legalizing the recreational use of cannabis in 2016, with 65% of residents supporting the proposition. Retail locations must keep a 1000-foot buffer from “sensitive-use locations,” such as daycare centers, playgrounds and schools. They must also maintain a distance of 600feet from youth centers. The distance is measured by a straight line from the closest property lines of the proposed retail location and the sensitive use property. However, there is an exception to the sensitive use rules if the desired location is within the 1000 or 600-foot buffers if there are natural or constructed barriers such as “freeways, flood control channels, or railroad tracks without pedestrian or automobile crossings that would impede direct physical access between the uses,” according to city documents. For example, Paul Ecke Central Elementary School is located across the train tracks from Coast Highway 101. However the

zone along Coast Highway, despite being within 1000 feet of the school, is designated as an allowed zoning location for cannabis retail as there are no pedestrian or other nearby traffic crossings for the train tracks. Retailers must submit a Sensitive Use Topographical and Constructed Barrier Form to the city if their desired location meets the criteria for the exception. According to the city, following the registration period Encinitas will conduct a preliminary review of the received materials and notify applicants if any materials or needed information is missing from their documents. Following notification, businesses will have five days to provide the missing information. The process is costly enough for the city to require a registration fee of $6,527.83 for each applicant on top of a $300 fee per business owner and responsible person for a background check. Following a full review of materials by the city and its consultant, HdL Companies, the businesses who meet certain criteria with a long-standing as business owners will receive greater preference rankings for the permit lottery. The city will publish those preference rankings before allowing businesses to submit additional materials within five days to qualify for the criteria if they were deemed inadequate by the city. In addition, the applicants who win the lottery and are awarded permits will also be asked to pay another $4,712.38 application fee. The city says these fees “will offset the cost associated with time spent by City staff and the Consultant (HdL Companies) in reviewing Supplemental Application materials and administrating the Application process.” Those who do not receive a license may appeal to the city manager’s office within five days of receiving notice that they will not receive a permit.

School defaced with racist, homophobic slurs  Civil rights groups, students decry hate crime By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — Just hours into the new year, a masked individual spray-painted several racist and homophobic slurs on a San Dieguito Academy administration building, prompting school district officials and local civil rights groups to denounce the hate crime in separate gatherings on Monday in Encinitas. The incident occurred at approximately 3:55 a.m. on New Year’s Day, according to the school district. The words, written in green spray paint, were quickly covered up by the school’s groundskeepers before police arrived. However, photos were taken and shared on social media before they could be covered up. The suspect was seen on security cameras entering campus and committing the acts alone, according to law enforcement and school district officials. In a press conference at the district office Monday, Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward condemned the action and said the district is conducting its own investigation into the hate crime, which the FBI defines as a “criminal offense against a person or proper-

Man found shot to death in Oceanside By City News Service

OCEANSIDE — Police were investigating the killing of a man who was found fatally shot in the middle of a street early Wednesday morning. Officers with the Oceanside Police Department found the victim unresponsive with at least one gunshot wound to the chest on Brooks Street near Maxon Street after a witness reported seeing him there around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday. No motive or suspect information was immediately available.

ty motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” “We understand that San Dieguito Union High School District is not perfect. We know that we have issues around racism and other -isms. Around religious issues as well — we’re quite aware of that,” James-Ward said. “Because of that awareness we have put in place different measures to help us become our next best self.” Superintendent James-

Ward touted the district’s new diversity, equity and inclusion training, and the district’s new hiring of an ombudsman to deal with issues surrounding equity. James-Ward said the key to preventing future similar incidents is to engage with students at school about issues, such as racism and homophobia. “I think the most important thing is to be on campus, is to talk to kids,” James-Ward said. “I think it’s important to hear them, to understand them, and the best way to do that is to be in school.”

In a separate gathering on Monday, a group of community members and students met at San Dieguito Academy to rally against the hateful speech, emphasizing their belief school officials have not listened to the community's concerns of underlying racism issues in the district. Rob Jenkins, vice president of the North San Diego County chapter of the NAACP, said his organization has attempted to meet with the district regarding ongoing racism and will continue to do so. “Our president, Satia

Austin, requested a meeting with the superintendent, the principal and the district yesterday morning to make sure that they meet with us. And we will make sure that this happens as soon as possible,” Jenkins said. “This is a systemic problem that is happening not just here on the San Dieguito Academy campus but this is happening all across the nation.” Jenkins and others also questioned why the NAACP or other community or student groups weren’t invited to the district’s press conference on the issue. Max Disposti, executive director of the North County LGBTQ Resource Center, said the district missed a chance for unity with its community members by not holding a combined press conference. “What a missed opportunity for the district to actually do a community action and come together and call and reach out to the NAACP and community members to respond to a common problem,” Disposti said. “We haven’t seen any preventative action. We have only seen reactionary responses to what has happened.” Mayor Catherine Blakespear joined the rally to denounce racism in the city, saying the kind of crime committed at the campus can lead to further violence down the road. “If we don’t have these kinds of conversations it

can happen again,” Blakespear said. “We know that this causes real harm to real people. And we also know that the dehumanizing of others for their race, sexuality, religion or for any reason leads to gun violence, arson, and physical harm and intimidation and countless other tragedies.” The district is investigating the identity of the person responsible for the graffiti. The North Coastal Station of the San Diego Sheriff's department is also in possession of the school’s security footage and is actively investigating the matter, according to school district officials. The district has described the suspect as a youth, but the Sheriff's Department is not ruling out the possibility of the suspect being an adult. “By the size of the imagery I would not be surprised if it was an adult,” Sheriff's Captain Dustin Lopez told The Coast News. “I can’t say for sure until the video is broken down but it would not surprise me.” Law enforcement is also working with juvenile detectives assigned to SDA to see if they can find more information on who may may be responsible. The district said anyone with information that could lead to finding the suspect can submit it anonymously on the WeTip link on any of the school websites from the district.

NCTD seeks sole authority to advance fencing plan By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — The North County Transit District filed a new petition on Dec. 30 with the federal Surface Transportation Board seeking sole authority to proceed with its proposed fencing project along the Del Mar bluffs. The regional transit agency, or NCTD, originally filed the petition back in August 2020 seeking confirmation of its assertion that it has sole authority over railway matters when it comes to the railway tracks it owns, including bluff repairs and fencing of the track right-of-way. The fencing project, however, continued to receive mounting backlash from the City of Del Mar and its residents. Del Mar’s own council members have been outspoken with their criticism of the project in council meetings and to media outlets. In December 2020, NCTD, the City of Del Mar, and the California Coastal Commission came to an agreement to delay review by the STB “to allow the parties time to work in good faith to reach an agreement that would eliminate the need for a review and determination by the STB,” according to NCTD. The deadline to reach an agreement was Dec. 31, 2021. The deadline has

come and gone and, according to Matthew Tucker, NCTD’s executive director, they are moving forward in seeking sole authority. “Our approach throughout this process has been to work constructively and collaboratively to develop a community-sensitive solution for the bluffs that promotes rail safety and ensures reliability while providing safe and legal access. Unfortunately, our extensive discussions with the City of Del Mar and the Coastal Commission did not result in an agreement. The

NCTD Board will consider final project approval at its January 20, 2022 meeting. At the Board's direction, we are also seeking an expedited determination from the Surface Transportation Board,” Tucker said in a statement provided to The Coast News. The NCTD created the fencing plan to reduce deaths and injuries caused by those trespassing on the tracks. According to the original NCTD petition, there have been 112 fatalities along the Coaster rail line since 2010, including

eight in Del Mar since 2014. The City of Del Mar and opponents of the project argue that the fencing would erode the bluffs, block ocean views and restrict access to the beach. Many also argue that the project is no longer necessary as the newly approved SANDAG transportation plan aims to move the tracks into an underground tunnel by 2035. In October, NCTD unveiled a 4-foot-tall fence design to be more “community sensitive,” scaled down from the original 6-foot-tall

design, but the city and community still weren’t sold. “Despite significant efforts by NCTD to address the parties’ concerns, negotiations have not been successful. As a result, NCTD sees no choice but to proceed with this matter in an expedited manner to resolve the disputes at issue,” the renewed petition reads in part. The NCTD board will consider approval of construction of the Del Mar fence at its board meeting on Jan. 20.

Cardiff locals debut low tide walk to La Jolla By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — Just after celebrating the new year, a group of friends met together at Swami’s Beach for a unique opportunity that comes around just once a year. For a few hours, one day a year, it is possible to walk along the beach from Cardiff all the way south to La Jolla without having to swim. The group calls it the “King Tide Challenge.” “King tide is the highest and lowest tide of the year, all in one day,” Chris Swanner, the Cardiff resident and retired firefighter who brought his friends together for the walk, told The Coast News. The walk was just for friends and family this year but Swanner still did the work of having sweatshirts designed and even offering a gift card to Bump Coffee in Cardiff to the person who was able to collect the most trash from the beach during the walk. The unique tide offered those who walked with rare views along the coast during their four hour walk to La Jolla. “It’s just the beauty that we have here. When I tell people you can walk from Swami’s to La Jolla, they just can’t believe it,” Swanner said. “I did it yesterday too, it’s an unbelievable view.” Even though more of Swanner’s friends made it out to Swami’s for the walk, he still had more shirts left over and he says anyone who would like one can purchase one from Bump Coffee while the supply lasts for $20. Picking up trash along the beach is something Swanner says he’s one for some time, making his inclusion of that as part of the walk an easy decision. “I walk on the beach all the time and I would pick up trash but there was so much I couldn’t go anywhere carrying all of it, so at some point I just said OK I’ll just pick up bottle caps,” Swanner said. “Everyone will have a gallon bag with them today so they can pick up more than bottle caps.” Swanner first began to think of plans for what he calls the King Tide Challenge in January of 2021. Swanner was able to get more of his friends to come out than first anticipated and he hopes that will be a good sign for when he plans to organize a bigger and more official event next year. “Next year it will be about raising money for cancer,” Swanner, who is a melanoma survivor, said. “It will be for skin cancer awareness, it will be for Rancho Coastal Humane Society and the Rob Machado Foundation. Once we get those people involved with the advertising and stuff, it will be huge.”

Quirk, Worden spar over region’s railway lines By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — In Del Mar, the topic of trains and rail systems has become an almost daily conversation at the city level and even in everyday life. From bluff stabilization to SANDAG’s $160 billion transportation plan to NCTD’s controversial fencing project, trains have been integrated into the fabric of Del Mar. At the city’s helm, Mayor Dwight Worden and Councilmember Dan Quirk have starkly different perspectives on whether or not the county’s rail systems, specifically Coaster and Pacific Surfliner, are essential to San Diego County now or in the future. At times, the disagreement between the two civic leaders, which has been ongoing for months, has boiled over in scathing commentaries published in The Sandpiper, an online community journal covering Del Mar.

Riding the rails

Worden, a former lawyer and an active environmentalist, maintains that rail is essential to San Diego because the county cannot meet its mandatory state, federal and local climate goals without it. Worden also argues that rail will help solve traffic congestion on roadways. Quirk, who has a background in finance and data analytics, emphasizes that not all rail is bad, however, each rail system needs to be evaluated against the data. Considering all-time low ridership, Quirk believes the hundreds of billions of dollars that are being put into Coaster and Surfliner are not justified. In 2019, a SANDAG report showed the Coaster had the lowest ridership of the region’s five rail lines and Coaster ridership on average has decreased over the past five years. “When I look at the ridership numbers I’m asking the question is the train even worth saving at this point?” Quirk told ABC 10. Regarding low ridership, Worden points to the new SANDAG transportation plan, which aims to get 13% of the population on public transit, an increase from the current 2%. SANDAG hopes to do this by creating new rail lines and increasing the number of trains that run on existing rail lines. “The difference is huge,” Worden said. “That’s enough to meet our greenhouse gas goals, that’s enough to mean we don’t have to keep widening freeways and roadways because we will have removed enough people to avoid congestion.” Quirk, on the other hand, points to years of declining ridership on the Coaster and Surfliner systems, even before the start of the COVID-19 crisis. He argues that the billions of dollars being spent for NCTD’s fencing project or for SANDAG to create new rail lines and to move the Del Mar tracks into an

underground tunnel are not justified if ridership continues its decline. “Also, here in Del Mar and Leucadia and Oceanside, where there’ve also been fencing projects, the nonfinancial costs are maybe even more important to a lot of people in the community,” Quirk said. “I believe that the various government agencies have been spinning a lie and a story and it’s been told well. This idea that trains are nostalgic and they’re cool, it’s a good story, but I think that it’s the wrong story. I think that there’s a huge amount of negatives and costs, and hopefully, I’m helping the community and the region to see those a little bit.” Quirk also addressed Worden’s argument that “a new mile of freeway costs about $62 million. A new mile of rail costs only $1-2 million,” pointing out that the new recently completed Mid-Coast Trolley Extension project from SANDAG added 11 miles and cost roughly $2.1 billion, or about $190 million per mile. Quirk referred to the California High-Speed Rail Project that could cost nearly $100 billion to complete the 500-mile system or $200 million per mile. But Worden said he was referring to national average costs of building new rail, adding that “all transit is subsidized… but automobiles and trucks get by far the biggest subsidy when one considers costs to build and maintain roads, freeways, bridges, tunnels, on and off-ramps etc.; costs of public and private land set aside for cars and trucks (parking, maintenance, travel ways, service stations, garages, junkyards, etc.); right of way acquisition costs to buy the land for roadways; costs of tax and other government subsidies for oil and gas exploration.”

Climate goals

When it comes to climate goals, Quirk said that these goals can be achieved with the rapid advances of clean electric vehicles and self-driving technology. “All of the major auto

manufacturers have announced huge investments in kind of converting or creating new facilities for electric. So the argument that trains are green… but you’re not solving climate change if you’re only focused on a tiny, tiny segment of the transportation market,” Quirk said. Worden argues that residents need all of it to reach climate action goals and local governments can’t afford to pick and choose. “We need all of it. We need the rail system… and we need more electric vehicles and we need hydrogen vehicles. And the SANDAG plan shows that until we get to almost 2050, we won’t totally meet our goals, even doing all of that,” Worden said. “So to me, it’s just not comprehensive to pull out a piece of that and say, well, let’s just talk about electric cars or let’s just talk about the train; you’ve got to talk about the whole integrated system to meet our climate goals.”

Extra rounds

The two city leaders’ public disputes aren’t expected to subside any time soon. In fact, it’s not the first time they have publicly aired their grievances. Worden published a letter in the Sandpiper back in November calling out Quirk for a warning he had

received from the NCTD regarding his alleged violations of the Brown Act. Quirk defended his actions regarding his comments to the NCTD board in an email to constituents. “Not only are my actions not a violation of state law as Dwight (Worden) suggests...they are essential to the operation of good and transparent democratic government,” Quirk wrote. “The NCTD’s accusation against me are an attempt to use intimidating legal tactics to shut down legitimate free speech and public debate. “I see it as an attempt to deflect from the attention I bring to the Coaster’s incredible failures as a transportation service, as well as the environmental destruction and risks it presents to Del Mar with bluff decapitation, fences, and an incredibly risky and massive multi-billion-dollar construction proposal to blast a tunnel through the Del Mar hillside, directly underneath people’s homes.” Quirk went on to list some of the city’s achievements since joining the council in 2020, such as starting three utility undergrounding projects, “vigorous efforts” to earn a stay on the bluffs fencing project and “rapidly improving city budget and financial

position.” But just two weeks later, The Sandpiper published a line item rebuttal of Quirk’s stated accomplishments, entitled, “Fact Check: Quirk’s Long List of Claimed Achievements.” The article refutes nearly all of Quirk’s claims to varying degrees. For example, in response to Quirk’s fencing project claim, the Sandpiper issued a scathing rebuke, writing in part: “Quirk’s ‘vigorous efforts’ to date have resulted only in a warning letter that continued violations of the Brown Act, with respect to his NCTD Board service may result in referral to the Attorney General or the Fair Political Practices Commission. And on Nov. 18, NCTD took actions to expedite its fencing plans.”

Redistricting won’t impact Lawson-Remer recall effort By Stephen Wyer

ESCONDIDO — The newly released county electoral maps will not impact a local group's recently launched effort to recall Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer, according to political and redistricting analysts. The county's Independent Redistricting Commission approved new voting maps on Dec. 11, reshaping all five districts in San Diego County in accordance with regional demographic and population changes. And the changes to Lawson-Remer's District 3 were fairly significant. Once encompassing Leucadia to Tierrasanta northsouth and Escondido to Encinitas east-west, the district now runs from approximately Carlsbad to Coronado, retaining Encinitas but losing all of Escondido to the newly-formed District 5. But would Escondido residents, who have been drawn out of District 3 via the redistricting process, still be eligible to sign a petition to recall Lawson-Remer? According to Evan McLaughlin, a political data consultant for Redistricting Partners, the answer is yes. Per state guidelines, the new boundaries will not take effect until the 2024 election cycle, meaning that redistricting will likely have no impact on the current recall campaign that seeks to replace Law-

son-Remer, McLaughlin said. “The recall election is related to the District that elected the supervisor in 2020 — the current district, that includes Escondido,” McLaughlin said. “Every time that there is a special election that is held before the end of a term, regardless of redistricting, it is still held within that previ-

ous district iteration.” But with the loss of Escondido, a traditionally conservative stronghold, and a greater concentration of territory along the region’s coastline, which tends to lean blue, McLaughlin said it’s safe to say that redistricting has shifted the district toward Democrats. If she survives the recall effort, Lawson-Remer

— who was elected in 2020 by more than 15 percentage points over Republican incumbent Kristin Gaspar — will likely be even more difficult to defeat due to the new district boundaries, according to McLaughlin. Local group airs grievances The recall, which was initiated in September, has gained approximately

2,500 signatures so far, according to Mike Johnson, who is president of the local political action committee, Undivided San Diego. The initiative needs to garner at least 40,240 signatures by May 12 in order to generate a special election to replace Lawson-Remer. Johnson said the recall arose out of concern over the supervisor’s close ties to Super PACS, labor unions, and other special interests that he said don’t necessarily share the interest of the district’s constituents. “You look at the last election, she received more money from out of state than any other candidate in the county, she got a lot of big union money, just a lot of money to fill that seat, and it wasn’t from individual donors it was from organizations…and they’re already giving her money for 2024 trying to keep her in their pockets,” Johnson said. “Once she got into office, right away she just started repaying favors… the recall is to send a message to the entire board that she’s a corrupt politician… we want to replace her with a citizen who wants to serve the people.” Johnson added that the group also wants to unseat Lawson-Remer for various policy stances she has taken, such as her vote not to endorse Senate Bill 248, a recently passed state law that makes legal proceedings involving sexual preda-

tors open to the public. The supervisor’s support for various regulations concerning COVID-19, including universal vaccine mandates and restrictions on businesses, has also alienated her constituents and demonstrated that she puts party interests ahead of those of District 3 residents, Johnson said. “This is not a partisan position…but her only purpose, and she’s made it very clear several times, is that she only thinks that she needs to serve the people that voted for her…I think that San Diego County is tired of that mindset, we want to come together and make things better for everyone,” Johnson said. Lawson-Remer’s campaign declined to comment for this article but previously told The Coast News in a statement: “I am remaining focused on delivering services to my constituents to protect our quality of life, help families make a better living, support struggling renters and small businesses, and get more than two million residents vaccinated. I trust that reasonable San Diegans will unite to say enough is enough with this wasteful recall.” A tough road to recall The initiative to replace the supervisor is reflective of a recent statewide surge in campaigns aimed at reTURN TO RECALL ON A14

Treat addiction the right way at Mindful Rejuvenation

L

ocated in Oceanside, Mindful Rejuvenation is a drug and alcohol recovery center that provides its attendees with accredited and licensed medical recovery professionals to treat their addiction. They believe in offering patient-centric and customized recovery treatments to patients seeking rehabilitation. This center is unique in that it offers a “dual diagnosis” which helps clients work on the “why” they have suffered in their mental health status and coped with it by abusing substances or other unhealthy addictive behaviors. “We use mindfulness in order to engage our clients in the moment,” says CEO / owner Jacqueline Ortega. “So often, adults get stuck in the everyday move and groove that we forget to care for our mind and body. We take the time to engage our clients in their current feeling and topics that are not usually discussed in the everyday life. We use an individualized approach to meet our clients where they are at.” Some of the services they offer include treatment for EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), individual or family therapy, relapse prevention, and of course, mindfulness. Being mindful of your addiction will instill the right combination of customized outpatient, dual diagnosis, and substance abuse recovery treatments that are based on what you need. “All treatments will

consist of the same elements such as therapy to engage clients socially,” Ortega explains. “Individual therapy to discuss personal issues that need more attention, and case management to organize and assist in any life needs or resource of our own.” Mindful Rejuvenation believes in tailoring their treatment according to the patient and their needs. According to their official website, they provide professional disciplines which include licensed professionals, psychiatrists, life coaches, Pilates instructors, yoga instructors, nutritionists, and occupational therapists. “We can provide a customized treatment plan for individuals looking for a more effective and lasting solution. We treat the whole you. Not just your symptoms, but the underlying causes of your addiction as well.” Success largely depends on the client. Ortega says that for some, success was achieving sobriety. For others, “success was achieving a career after leaving us and that was achieved in the armed forces. Another client achieved success by overcoming anxiety to finish flight school. For other clients it was either rekindling relationships or having the ability to no longer react to past traumas.” For more information, visit www.mindfulrejuvenationinc.com or visit their center located at 717 Pier View Way in Oceanside, CA, or give them a call at (760) 994-8846.

North County ups its fitness game

C

rossFit Counterculture is bringing CrossFit to North County with the intent of showing people a world of better fitness. CrossFit is a physical exercise philosophy that incorporates elements such as high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, calisthenics, and other exercises. It was founded by Greg Glassman back in 2001 and has since been used by gym goers for conditioning, improving health and weight loss in over 15,000 facilities worldwide. Included in this gym is the “Master’s program,” which is for people 55+ years old, and is specifically designed for mobility, flexibility, joint strength, mechanics, nutrition, overall

strength, and endurance. According to their website, the p r o g r a m ’s goal is to provide HUTCHINSON “assistance and modifications to any movement or workout to help provide a safe and comfortable space for our older members.” The master’s membership costs $125 a month. Additionally, they offer yoga, nutrition courses, a kid’s program, personal training and more. Tony Hutchinson, instructor, explains how he first discovered CrossFit, “I saw an Optometrist who was recovering from back surgery. He got into Cross-

Fit and said it helped him a lot. He told about this event called “CrossFit Open” which starts the last week of February and goes through March. You get ranked worldwide based on your performance. I enrolled when I was 60 and ended 77th in the world for my age group.” Tony said he has been fighting cancer since the first wave of Covid back in January of 2020. Between the chemo treatments and Covid, he was out of commission for a while, “I was going through chemotherapy treatments that were delayed because of Covid, so I restarted my fitness to get back into shape when I just turned 68 a couple weeks ago.” Since then, he’s been fighting to get back into

Post-COVID syndrome...

the basics we should all know By Dr. Sadi Jimenez

Post Covid Syndrome. Recently we clinicians have seen a rise in a group of symptoms that tend to begin soon after a recovery of Covid infection. These symptoms usually are also present during an active Covid infection, only to worsen or persist as the infection subsides. THEY ARE MOST COMMONLY • Extreme fatigue • Body aches • Lack of taste and a sense of smell • Lack of wellbeing • Lack of mental focus, brain fog

have a commonality, that their amelioration is best served from a holistic and whole perspective, such as optimizing our immune systems and addressing the underlying factors that affected us before the pandemic.

For many of us those are simple things such as reduction of stress, eating a whole diet, and finding time to do the things we love, whether that is going to the gym or just

shape. He knows that CrossFit can be intimidating to many and wants to ensure a safe atmosphere and coaching environment to get seniors more active, no matter what their starting point. Gym client Ryan Alex comments on his first meeting with Tony, and the amount of dedication he had, “Most of the time I couldn’t keep up, it didn’t matter if it was strength or aerobic. It didn’t matter that I was decades younger. . . I couldn’t keep up with him.” Zia Rohrbaugh, owner of the North County gym, comments, “I have made it my life goal to help people, and Tony is someone who has made me proud.

place, the balloon is filled with saline solution and serves as a cushion that keeps the shoulder bones from painfully rubbing together during movement, which can occur as a result of a rotator cuff tear. Last summer, the Food and Drug Administration granted clearance for the InSpace balloon implant to be used in patients in two categories: those with massive and irreparable rotator cuff tears and people aged 65 and older who have rotator cuff degradation (also known as degenerative tears) with mild to moderate shoulder osteoarthritis. “We’re excited to offer this new treatment alternative to our patients, many of whom previously had limited options due to either the severity of their injury, or difficulty tolerating a significant surgery and recovery pro-

cess,” said Dr. Rebolledo, an orthopedic surgeon with Scripps Clinic who is among the first to perform the shoulder balloon procedure in San Diego County. “For patients with irreparable tears, we now have an option to provide excellent pain relief and improved function.” Traditionally, repairing rotator cuff tears involves complex surgery, either to stitch together or patch the torn area, or to reattach the tendon to the head of the humerus (upper arm bone). The goal of surgical repair is to have the tendons heal back onto the bone, but this outcome isn’t always possible if the injury has significantly worsened over time. Additionally, these repairs can involve prolonged recoveries for patients. By contrast, the balloon spacer approach does not involve surgical repair of the torn tendon, but rather adds a cushioning spacer to prevent painful bone-on-bone friction following a rotator cuff tear. With the spacer in place, the patient’s other muscles can be trained to take over for the torn tendon, enabling the shoulder to develop a well-compensated state that can lead to regained function. The biodegradable balloon is absorbed by the body within 12 months, but its benefit has been noted for years longer. Because the balloon procedure is minimally invasive, the time needed to recover can be relatively short. Patients who have undergone this procedure have generally returned to their activities within about four weeks. For those who go through open surgical repair, it can generally take roughly twice as long to resume activity. The balloon technology has a successful track record of more than 29,000 devices implanted internationally over 10plus years, as well as in a clinical trial setting in the United States, according to the company that offers the device. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, most rotator cuff tears result from a natural degeneration of the tendon over time. It is a chronic condition that does not heal or improve by itself, and frequently causes pain and limits use of the arm. As the condition progresses and worsens, the shoulder can become weaker, more painful and less useful. Nonsurgical treatments can relive pain and improve function for many patients.

Taking time for reflection in new year

A

s we say goodbye to 2021 and turn towards 2022, it is time for greater awakening and mindfulness. It has been an emotionally consumed year for many, and now is an important time to find a quiet space and dedicate a moment of intentional reflection. The last two years have left us all feeling strangely different, yet we wonder how you might have made light of the circumstances. Have you been able to find passion, purpose, or creativity, get in touch with yourself, or strengthen the relationships in your life? Has this past year left you feeling drained or empowered, forgotten or seen, isolated or connected? Consider how you have had to grow? Did you have to make hard decisions, do things you didn’t expect, rise to the occasion? In stopping and reflecting, we allow ourselves to pursue careful thought. By pausing, we can create greater awareness of our consciousness, allowing our brains to better understand and process the experiences we have had. An effective tool is using a journal, whether digital or handwritten. Allow your thoughts, feelings, and emotions to flow outwardly onto your paper. This is a time of cleansing and release. As we look forward to this new year, let us all take a moment to harness what we’ve learned about ourselves. In grounding ourselves in these experiences, we learn important lessons and can build momentum towards new habits. When we establish clear and concise goals we allow for greater alignment with who we are, where we came from, and where we want to strive to go in 2022. INTENTION OF THE MONTH: Reflection

What are your intentions for the new year and how can you be purposeful in creating successful habits in fulfilling them? Here are 6 INTENTION Setter Steps to help you get started: • Reduce Meaningless Consumption … take the time to prioritize what matters to you and purge the rest.

Holistic doctor: We need Shen Yun to bolster the spirit, fight the virus By Catherine Yang The Epoch Times

Jason Liu, medical doctor, professor, and founder of the Mind-Body Institute in California, understands why people have again become afraid to venture out to big gatherings as news about the virus seems to be around every corner. But, he says, while we so closely try to safeguard our physical health in fear, we end up forgetting about our mental and spiritual health. As a doctor of holistic medicine, Liu looks at the whole person when it comes to health. Right now, he says, people’s immune systems are being attacked by the virus—on three fronts. “I want to talk about three points, to open people up to defend themselves and fight the virus,” Liu said. “Right now, people have fear: That’s the key.” This fear is an assault on our psychological states, our spirits, and our physical bodies. It’s been widely reported that the pandemic has led to a plummeting in mental health, that depression and anxiety have become prevalent amid a new crisis. We have also long been aware

that mental health affects physical health and immunity, as mental health experts have reminded us since the onset of lockdowns. “Meaningful spiritual entertainment is able to empower your mind, body, spirit—your whole being—to be able to protect yourself,” Liu said. “Through the arts, through performance, we help people overcome fear and depression and anxiety.” This is held as truth in medical science, in positive psychology, and the wisdom of the ancients, since back before the Greeks built the Epidaurus theater in 400

B.C. as a place to honor Asclepius, the god of medicine, a place for the weary to cleanse their souls with therapeutic waters and theater. But what is special about Shen Yun Performing Arts in particular? “They’re bringing hope to the world, to the people, to every individual,” Liu said. Many years ago, Liu saw a performance by New York-based Shen Yun, the premier classical Chinese dance company, and he has been recommending it to his clients ever since.

Beyond the healing power of the arts in general, Liu points out that Shen Yun’s music blends ancient Chinese musical principles with the sound of the full classical orchestra audiences are most familiar with. “I found the music of the Shen Yun performance to be very special. Because I am a music therapy doctor myself, I feel that although most of Shen Yun‘s ensemble is Western instruments, the style of composition is actually in line with yin and yang and the five elements; it is music that expresses the harmony between heaven

and earth,” Liu said. The ancient Chinese also believed music had the power to heal; the Chinese character for “music” is actually the root of the Chinese character for “medicine.” This music system is pentatonic, based on five tones, which are attuned to the body’s five main internal organs, and the five elements of the exterior world. The first note, “gong,” is connected to the earth element and the digestive system, and music based on this note puts the listener in a state of serenity. The “jue” note is vigorous and connected to the wood element and liver health; “shang” is connected to metal, the lungs, and sorrow; “yu” is melodious and quiet, transparent like water, and connected to the kidneys; “zhi” is joyous, connected to fire, and the heart. Liu’s explanation matches that of Shen Yun’s closely, as this was common knowledge in traditional Chinese culture, before communism destroyed traditional culture in China. For 5,000 years, Chinese culture was believed to be divinely inspired, and the deeply spiritual civilization

was centered around the idea of harmony between heaven, earth, and humankind. It was only the last century when the Communist Party, atheist and anti-China in nature, took power and control of the nation. “The yin and yang and five elements in the show are able to activate your energy circulation system, which in acupuncture we call meridians,” Liu said. “This energy really activates your whole mind, body, spirit.” “Our body needs energy. When you don’t have good energy, you don’t sleep well, you worry, and then you make mistakes, because your mind is not clear,” Liu said. “This is very common: people lose their spiritual strength, their mental clarity, and then they make mistakes. And they then so easily get sick, because they become weak.” “Body, mind, and spirit—don’t forget this. This is how our whole being came from the universe, from God,” Liu said. And Shen Yun, a performance filled with spirit, with ancient wisdom, and the healing power of art, jump-starts that for that audience.

A physician talks about HRT After a certain age, our bodies’ repair processes become challenged. Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is one of the fastest ways to prevent your body from breaking down. As we age, It takes a bit longer to recover from those tennis and pickleball games, gardening adventures and such. Our bodies require fuel, and without the presence of some key hormones they will fall apart. So, our bodies don’t stop making hormones because they cause bad things to happen? Correct. The reason why our bodies cease production of certain hormones is because about 100 years ago, most of us would be dead by about age 50. In 1910, life expectancy for white women and men respectively was 52 and 49 years of age. Penicillin had not yet been discovered and high blood pressure was treated with leeches. People died early and often. You wouldn’t find cataract or hip replacement surgeries back then because most people died before those kinds of problems arose. Then came science. Penicillin, for example, in 1928. Because of that and other scientific advances, life expectancy has since increased by an average of about 30 years. However, that is due to science and not evolution. Hence, if we’re going to insist on keeping humans alive 30 years past their designed expiration date, something needs to be done in order to keep the bodies in good repair for the long haul.

Women benefit from HRT: keeps the soft squishy parts of the body soft and squishy (prevents atrophic vaginitis that makes sex and urination painful); allows calcium gut absorption which prevents osteoporosis-related fractures; protects against heart attack; improves/stabilizes mood; and more. Bonus: no more hot flashes or fitful sleeps! Men benefit from HRT (testosterone replacement) with improved energy/endurance. Aside from aiding in the repair of tissues, both men and women can see improvements in libido, brain function, bone/muscle mass, strength, and fat distribution. The goal of HRT is to allow for a more “normal” life after “the change” occurs (menopause in woman, andropause in men) for better quality later years with better body function. But, what about the cancer risk? Regarding breast cancer, it’s looking more like low progesterone might be the culprit behind this rather than estrogen. For example, anovulation and low serum progesterone levels have been associated with a significantly higher risk of breast cancer in pre-menopausal women. And while certain estrogens administered alone have been considered a risk for developing breast cancer, good studies have demonstrated that the combination of estrogen with progesterone (NOT a progestin; that’s different) can decrease and prevent breast cancer.

Progesterone, by itself, does not cause breast cancer and, conversely, appears to exert a protective effect. Regarding the prostate, testosterone treatment does not increase one’s risk of developing prostate cancer. A meta-analysis study in 2016 found no relationship between a man’s testosterone level and prostate cancer. Similarly, not only does testosterone HRT not increase the risk, but neither does it make it more severe in men who’ve already been diagnosed. There’s much more to discuss about HRT and its importance for health maintenance as we get older. Consult your physician or reach out to Medicine in Motion for an inexpensive consultation. Note that some physicians do not feel comfortable prescribing hormones so we often work with their patients and prescribe their HRT for them. [Please be aware that we do not sell hormones in our office; rather, we work with several local reputable compounding pharmacies to provide balanced bio-identical HRT regimens for our patients; hence, we have no financial incentive to prescribe HRT.] Medicine in Motion is the private family & sports medicine practice of Dr. Jeffrey Pearson & wife, Laurie.

New Year’s resolutions by Dr. Kern Brar New year's resolutions are a great way to improve your life. I believe each of us has the willpower to improve our health. We can resolve to improve one aspect, and by doing so, we can achieve great success. An advisor recently mentioned that saving seven dollars and investing that daily for 50 years with the power of compounding can make any individual a millionaire assuming 7% returns annually. I believe the same is true for your health, each meal we choose to eat or not eat will affect our body and our health in a similar compounding fashion. I have patients who drink just one can of soda a day. Some who go to their favorite fast food drivethrough to order a sandwich 5 times a week. Some who go to their favorite coffee shop and indulge in a double mocha caramel cappuccino every day and some who go to their home bar and have 2 glasses of wine every evening. Just a 50 or 100% decrease in these unhealthy habits can lead to a significant benefit in just one month. Consuming 30 cans of soda, 20 sandwiches, 30 cappuccinos and 60 glasses of wine is a lot of calories,

but also a very expensive lifestyle to maintain. This expense is a short term monetary expense that is often overlooked. It can turn out to be a more costly health expense over the years. Eventually, this lifestyle may lead to significant weight gain and may lead down a path towards hypertension, diabetes and possibly a heart attack or stroke. Cutting some or all of

these unhealthy habits will result in significant improvement in your overall health. Some of my patients work two jobs and felt going to a fast food drive-through was their only option for meals because of their busy schedule. I work with my patients to help make nutritious healthy options for meals that are most importantly filling, high in fiber, low in sugar and easy to make.

Geranium, the hardy geranium commonly known as ‘cranesbill’, is found on the south side of the Alps and elsewhere in southern and eastern Europe.It has been used for its therapeutic properties from ancient times. In particular, it has been used for the regeneration and healing of skin conditions. It was mentioned in the Greek physician Dioscorides’s De materia medica in the 1st century A.D. Later it was catalogued as a medicinal plant by the English herbalist and physician Nicholas Culpeper (1616-1654). Some confusion arises because the type of annual geraniums often seen in window boxes and gardens is Geranium Pelargoniums. These are also geraniums and have a somewhat different-shaped flower. Also known as ‘wild geraniums’, cranesbills are perennials, named because the shape of their flowers resembles a bird’s beak. Cranesbills are more likely to be cata-

logued as herbal medicine for the constituents found in their leaves and roots. Astringent and tonic, they have been used to treat piles, internal bleeding and diarrhea. However the type of geranium most commonly found locally is the pelargonium. This type of geranium originated from South Africa. Although it was introduced into Britain in 1632, it was not until the French perfume industry utilized its fragrance in 1847 that it became better known. Victoria ladies brought the scented geraniums indoors and planted them along garden paths. When their long skirts brushed against them, their aroma was released. Geranium’s popularity in landscaping is partly due to its hardiness, and it flourishes in diverse scents and colors. There are rose-scented, lemon-scented, mint, apple, orange, pineapple and sage-scented geraniums. Rose-peppermint, piney-nutmeg and oak are also among the multitude of varieties. Rose-scented geranium mimics the more expensive rose fragrance and is often used in perfumes and cosmetics. Aside from the demand for its decorative uses, pelargonium geranium is valued for its uses as an essential oil. It is said to be the most used oil in aromatherapy. Its fragrance helps to balance the emotions and ease nervous tension. It is antidepressant and antiseptic. It is also antispasmodic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, diuretic and hemo-static (stops bleeding). As a diuretic it also helps to relieve fluid retention and has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system. Additionally, it is antibacterial, antifungal and improves blood flow. It is a stimulant for the liver and pancreas, it dilates bile ducts and revitalizes skin cells. Geranium oil is also an adrenal cortex stimulant. The adrenal cortex secretes hormones that regulate the balance of other hormones, including male and female sex hormones.

timated at $6 million and SANDAG is still sourcing the other half of the money to fund the project, he said. However, the total cost for the construction phase is estimated at $80 million, Greer said, noting SANDAG is looking to other state and federal funding sources such as the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed last year by Congress. The Buena Vista Lagoon, he said, is not part of the Build North Coast Corridor program, which is an $870 million partnership between SANDAG and Caltrans upgrading roads, highways, bike connections and lagoon restorations. Regardless, the Buena Vista Lagoon will transform from a freshwater body to a saltwater lagoon once the restoration is complete. “You dredge out the lagoon, you restore the contour so the areas can flow in and out, that’s the big project,” Greer said. “Eighty million dollars is a pretty reasonable estimate considering all the other lagoon restorations we’ve seen.”

unique variables at play that make the intersection unsafe. “The minimum volume of vehicles per hour required by the city will never apply…it’s only a small window of time during the day, pick-up and drop-off, where this is really an issue, and the study doesn’t really apply to that time frame,” Runmark said. Runmark added that it was “a joke” the federal manual’s requirement of a certain number of accidents in a given period before determining that a location needed a four-way stop. “They are basically saying that they will not address this unless a kid is seriously injured or killed with five or more reported crashes in 12 months…we shouldn’t get a kid killed or seriously injured before solving this problem,” Runmark said. Councilman Tony Kranz, who represents Leucadia in District 1, agreed with Runmark that the city’s analysis was flawed in requiring there be a demonstrated accident history before improvements could be made. “The commission’s analysis of the intersection…it relied on things like enough accidents and other disasters taking place in a period, and that’s really a backward way of thinking,” Kranz told The Coast News. “Why should we be waiting for disasters to happen before we say it qualifies for a four-way stop?” At the same time, Kranz said that he was not personally convinced that four-way stop control was the best solution to the school’s traffic challenges. Instead, Kranz said that he would prefer that the school district hire crossing guards to hold stop signs and monitor pedestrian and vehicular traffic, a step that he said would bothCROP protect vulnerable schoolchildren crossing at .93 the intersection while si.93 multaneously not unduly 4.17 traffic around the stopping 4.28 school throughout the day. “Since we only really

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

When a loved one dies, we are often faced with the question of how to safely dispose of their medications. “Flushing them” is not the answer. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the San Diego Board of Supervisors recognized that unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs presented substantial risks to our community by either falling into the wrong hands, or by damaging our environment through improper disposal. To solve this issue, most Sheriff Stations now offer secure collection drop-boxes. Residents are welcome to come to any of the facilities listed on their website where unwanted medications may be turned in anonymously. To see a list of stations with drop boxes and for more details, visit the San Diego Sheriff Department’s website at https://www.sdsheriff.net/ prescription-drugs/dropbox.html.

calling various elected officials, according to Dr. Thad Kousser, a political scientist at the University of California San Diego. Without strong financial backing and a clear campaign message for voters, however, a recall initiative will not get far, Kousser told The Coast News, noting that a large number of the current recall efforts are failing to even get on the ballot because they can’t get the required amount of signatures. “Many of these are falling short of the signature requirement because nearly all recalls require a significant paid operation — grassroots will only get you so far,” Kousser said. And then there are the associated costs of running

have this problem about a half-hour before and after school, it’s like do we really want to stop all traffic for 24 hours a day in all directions? That’s the challenge…I think we need to work harder with the school district to find ways to put in traffic crossing guards at schools like this,” Kranz said. In 2021, the city conducted a speed cushion study in front of Capri from Burgundy Road to Rainbow Ridge but concluded that section of road did not meet the criteria for speed humps or tables, according to a city spokesperson. Additionally, the city also performed an all-way stop control evaluation at the intersection of Capri and Burgundy but determined it did not warrant an allway stop sign. “The school may consider using crossing guards in safety vests at this intersection to provide greater visibility for and assist pedestrians in crossing the road,” Taber said in an email. Ultimately, the biggest key to ensuring pedestrian safety at the school is personal responsibility on the part of the drivers, the councilman added. “It’s frustrating that people can’t take into consideration the number of kids walking through the crosswalk with their parents, you just have people weaving and darting through the intersection at such a high speed, they just really need to slow down — that’s the best solution,” Kranz said. Stacy concurred with Kranz that much of the danger inherent in the crossing comes down to the personal responsibility of the drivers traversing Capri Road, many of whom she said are often distracted or frustrated parents rushing to drop off or pick up their own kids. “I understand that people commuting to the school are often frustrated, late for work, and then they’re waiting a long time in traffic before speeding off… but really when it comes down to it, the adults have to be held accountable and the city needs to keep our children safe,” she said. a recall campaign, successful or not. Kousser estimated that it will cost between $100,000 to $200,000 to fund the recall campaign against Lawson-Remer. The researcher expressed that even if the recall gains the required number of signatures, he gives the initiative little chance of success, largely because voters typically prefer to vote “no” in a special election without a major scandal or singular event that galvanizes the electorate and rallies support for a replacement campaign. “Voters are looking for a real reason to recall someone, not just that we prefer another candidate. If the idea is that they haven’t been serving their constituents, well we have a fix for that and it’s called regular elections,” Kousser said.

change.” As for exit fees, Boswell said because SDG&E is liquidating expiring contracts, customers will see a bit of a savings on the exit fee charge. Exit fees are determined by the California Public Utilities Commission, although utility companies present their recommendations to the CPUC. “Our exit fees that are being charged to our customers are actually going down,” she added. “Because the energy market has been going up, and the price of energy has been going up, SDG&E can get a greater return when liquidating their contracts on the open market.” However, exit fees are expected to decline over the next several years due to market forecasts, John Dalessi of Pacific Energy Advisors told the board. “As contracts expire, their contribution to the exit fee will fall off,” he added. “Year-to-year, it’s driven by the energy markets and the short-term. This year we’ve seen significant increases in the market prices. We’re seeing that reflected in a lower exit fee.” Regardless, Boswell said CEA is also keeping tabs on rising energy costs in the market, increases in distribution charges from SDG&E, expiring SDG&E contracts and a potential increase in credit from JPMorgan Chase. The increase in credit, Boswell said, will come back to the board at a later meeting. Boswell said CEA wants to minimize rates changes per year and the goal is to only have one rate change per year. The board also welcome new representatives from the cities of Escondido and San Marcos, which will join the CEA in April 2023. Tina Inscoe of Escondido and Ed Musgrove of San Marcos will represent their respective cities on the board. With the addition of those two cities, the number of accounts will grow to 153,168. Also, Kristi Becker of Solana Beach and Priya Bhat-Patel of Carlsbad were re-elected as chairwoman and vice chairwoman, respectively, for 2022.

Developer unveils Captain Keno’s renderings By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — In November, a local developer purchased Captain Keno’s and the Portofino Beach Inn with plans to develop the properties into a mixeduse project. Adam Robinson, owner of RAF Pacifica Group (RPG), told The Coast News he has already shown the renderings to some locals and is hoping to receive more feedback. “I want feedback,” Robinson said. “We’re willing to implement as much of the feedback into the project that makes sense as possible. We’re building this in Leucadia for businesses that want to be in Leucadia.” For example, Robinson said some who have seen the renderings who have expressed a desire for more mature trees in front of the property, which Robsinson said his staff is looking into. However, Robinson says he wouldn’t expect there to be too many radical changes in the final construction. “I am happy to say

that — you know I’ve built around two million square feet — usually the real product ends up looking better than the renderings,” Robinson said. “The city could still have some comments on the design and some colors and things like that but our ultimate goal is to have the end product look very close to these renderings.” Robinson also said the murals on the side of the buildings should end up

more specific toward Leucadia. The mural designs on the renderings were done by local muralists hired by RPG who will also work on the final murals. The project will include a bar space that is named after the longtime Encinitas landmark, Captain Keno’s, which will be demolished for the new development. Robinson said he has purchased the liquor license from Keno’s owner

Gerry Sova and will work to incorporate as much memorabilia from the current location as possible. “When we get to the actual design of the bar area we’ll try to implement it as much as we can,” Robinson said. “I’d say at the very least we’ll have some memorabilia and photos on the walls but we’ll probably introduce some other aspect of the restaurant as well” The interior designs

representative for Carbon Health, a primary and urgent health care provider that operates testing centers throughout San Diego, including one in San Marcos. The demand for testing is so high that the San Marcos location is entirely booked for urgent care appointments well into January, Block said — with virtually all of the clinic’s appointments being for coronavirus tests. Pam Orense, a San Marcos resident, said that she, her husband, and their two children waited for over three hours to get tested at California State University San Marcos’ on-campus testing location (the testing site is free and open to the public without appointment). “We got there 20 minutes before the site opened, but we were still there for almost 3½ hours. We were all shivering in the rain,” Orense said, adding that she doesn’t think that her experience is an isolated one. “Pretty much every testing site in our area has had over two-hour waits for the past week. … All of the at-home COVID test kits are sold out too. It’s just unfortunate — I’m praying it doesn’t get even worse after New Year.” Long lines and waits upwards of three hours at Kaiser Permanente’s San Marcos testing location have become the norm, according to Jennifer Dailard, a media spokesperson for Kaiser. The testing center has increased its staffing and expanded its hours of operations in response, but the sheer volume of local residents seeking tests has still strained the site’s capacity, Dailard said. “We’ve really been experiencing uncommonly high demand for testing

around this holiday season,” she said. “We’ve adjusted our hours and tried to adjust staffing best we can, but we’re sadly not an exception to what’s become the rule throughout the county, which is longer waits.” She added that she thinks that the holidays have further exacerbated what was already a huge regional surge in case numbers. “I think that especially this week with the holiday ending, you have people getting back to work and trying to figure out if they’re safe, you have companies and schools getting their people tested, and then there’s those getting tested to see if they’re safe for travel as well.” Ashley Miller and her husband drove 45 minutes from their home in Fallbrook to get tested at a drive-through clinic set up at The Shoppes shopping center in Carlsbad. Once

they arrived, they waited over two hours to get tested, and Miller said that it was obvious that the site’s testing capacity was strained by the sheer volume of people who showed up. “There were about 60 cars ahead of us when we got there so we had to wait two hours to get tested. It was run pretty smoothly overall but there were just more cars than there were staff to test. The long waits … are frustrating but the staff are really doing their best given the circumstances,” Miller said. Miller added that she knows some people who ended up paying hundreds of dollars for rapid tests at private health clinics in order to skip the long lines. The demand for testing has been so high that some of Carbon Health’s clinics have run out of rapid tests entirely, and some locations are starting to have to shut down walk-in

tests during the day due to a shortage of testing supplies, Block said. “We’re facing huge staffing and supply challenges, especially with a shortage of tests … we can’t even guarantee rapid tests for our patients now, we have to save them for heavily symptomatic patients and people are getting mad at us. Some days there’s just such an influx of people at the site that we just can’t take any more walk-ins for the day at all,” Block said. Those coming to the San Marcos location should expect to wait at least a couple of hours to get tested, he added. Escondido resident Lily Yates said that she had a test appointment at Total Testing Solutions in Rancho Bernardo, but when she and her family arrived to get tested, site staff told them that the center was closed for the day after they

are on the back burner for now as RPG works to finalize all of the external designs with the city. RPG is still in its first round of reviews with city staff and will still have to go in front of the city’s planning commission before receiving final approval from the city council. Robinson said he doesn’t expect to be at that stage until 2023. “We have this whole year to go through everything on the exterior design,” Robinson said. RPG is also planning on hosting a public Citizen Participation Program, or CPP, through the city’s department of development services to get more feedback from residents on the project in the near future. “This is something we want to own for a long time so we want it to be high quality and receptive to the community,” Robinson said. The CPP does not have a date as of now but Robinson hopes to work with the city to get one scheduled within the next 60 days. had run out of test kits. “It’s upsetting,” Yates said. “I drove all the way from Escondido and the two guys at the site said sorry we don’t have any tests, and our other location in Santee is closed down as well. … I just think that’s silly, like we need more sites open — this really hasn’t been an easy experience.” Having to devote increasingly more resources to meet the increasing need for testing has also had a ripple effect on health care providers’ ability to offer patients other services, according to Block. “Where I really see the impact to this is in how hard it is now to get urgent care appointments … like if someone has a UTI or a broken ankle or any other malady, I just literally don’t have the appointments to get them in and treated, the appointments are pretty much all for COVID testing now,” Block said. It’s not just testing centers that are overwhelmed — at home COVID-19 tests are also becoming increasingly hard to come by, with locals often finding store shelves that were full of test kits now empty. Orense, Miller, and Yates all said that they went to testing sites in-person only after being unable to find a single test kit available at surrounding locations or online. “They’re just nowhere to be found,” Miller said of the at-home tests. “I tried to order one online since we are sick, and I had a friend go to a bunch of different stores for me, and there were just none available.” In Carlsbad, city libraries distributing thousands of at-home COVID-19 test kits supplied by the county ran out in just a couple of days, according to the city’s communications director, Kristina Ray.

LEGALS NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 866266-7512 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub. com using the file number assigned to this case 210013731 CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 866-266-7512 or visit this Internet Web site www. elitepostandpub.com using the file number assigned to this case 21001373-1 CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Butterflies are born among the rocks in Carlsbad jano’s garden jano nightingale

hen I was a child, I gleefully chased fluffy dandelion puffballs across the fields with my friends in Northern Wisconsin. It was springtime, and the dandelions were in the final phase of their bloom scattering their progeny across the land. Little did I know that someday I would be collecting the similarly airborne seeds of the milkweed plant (Asclepias tuberosa) across State Street in Carlsbad. A seed is an entity so special and complex that most of us cannot explain its form and function. In the words of botanist Nancy Bubel, in her very comprehensive book, “The New Seed-Starters Handbook”: “Seeds are complete-

Within the boundaries of the hard, dry coat that protects them, they possess enough food energy to carry them through their dormancy and into their first few days as seedlings.” So, what I did not know when I was 12 was that the little puffballs I was catching were soon-to-become dandelion plants. And the soft white airborne seeds popping out of the milkweed near the Village Rock Shop are soon-to-be fullgrown plants in the shop’s garden, now being propagated in the shop’s yard. Chris Bany, local landscape designer and gardener, is working with Xenia Mateiu to transform her gift shop into a haven for butterflies in Carlsbad. The shop features local crystals and gems along with handmade gifts, and last year had a few living visitors. Xenia, owner of the Village Rock Shop, said she “was blessed with a wonderful natural event when I started growing butterflies. “Everything started when we were struggling Carlsbad; go bowling at Bowlero, San Marcos Jan. 20; meet for happy hour and dinner at Brigantine, Escondido Jan. 26 and have lunch at the Corner Bakery, Carlsbad Jan. 31.

MILKWEED is critical for the survival of monarch butterflies. Photo by Xenia Mateiu

during COVID and we employed a gardener to improve our outdoor space. ... Chris Bany taught us about the plants that butterflies are most drawn to and brought milkweed plants to the garden. … Soon the butterflies produced larvae, which made their way to the

inside of our shop. “We brought jars and branches into the store and the larvae ate the plant’s leaves, found a safe place to create their chrysalis and began their transformation.” Xenia and her staff now plan to have many jars set up in her shop for the butterflies to metamorphosize, and Chris is hard at work producing more plants from the seed he has collected from the existing plants. According to the National Wildlife Federation, “Monarch caterpillars feed exclusively on the leaves of milkweed, the only host plant for this iconic butterfly species. As such, milkweed is critical for the survival of monarchs. Without it, they cannot complete their life cycle and their populations decline. “Indeed, eradication of milkweed both in agricultural areas as well as in urban and suburban landscapes is one of the primary

reasons that monarchs are in trouble today.” You can visit the Village Rock Shop and see the little “milkweed nursery” in the yard at 2690 State Street, in Carlsbad, and check out the website at villagerockshop.com. Bany’s landscape design work is on Instagram @ carlsbadvillagegardens. According to Chris, “Our goal is to grow and distribute milkweed plants all over Downtown Carlsbad. That way, this spring the air will be full of Monarchs!” For more information about choosing milkweed for your garden, and to learn more about the life cycles of these fascinating creatures, go to monarchjointventure.org and nwf. org/monarchs. In the coming weeks we will be exploring process of choosing seed for your vegetable garden and getting those seeds started. In the meantime, order catalogues (yes, there are

still companies that will send you hard copies!) from superseeds.com, seedsavers.org and botanicalinterests.com. And visit the website and YouTube channel for our very own local seed company, sandiegoseedcompany.com. While dreaming of your spring garden, visit the local San Diego Master Gardener website at mastergardenerssandiego.org for free printed materials on cool season vegetable crops and specific information on every vegetable you can imagine! Stay tuned for more tips on how to plan and start your vegetable garden in the next few weeks. For further information, contact me at janosgarden@gmail. com.

Longtime horse racing exec to leave

small talk jean gillette

By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club recently announced that Craig Dado, a member of the club’s executive staff, is leaving the organization after 20 years. Dado will be pursuing his dream of starting his own business right here in Del Mar. Dado, 54, joined the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club back in 2001 as vice president of marketing. In 2010, Dado was named senior vice president before assuming his current role of executive vice president and chief marketing officer since 2013. “It was a dream job. That’s the best way I can describe DADO it,” Dado said. “I always wanted to work at Del Mar and I finally pulled it off 20 years ago going to work for Joe Harper, and it was a wonderful 20 years.” Before Del Mar, Dado had begun his racing career at Santa Anita Park in 1991, working his way up to become the track's vice president of marketing, but he always had his eye on Del Mar, Dado told The Coast News. “I was very much interested in sports business, and coming out of undergraduate education, I was a [Certifie Public Accountant], so I love the numbers and all that stuff. And when I was exposed to horse racing, which involves sports marketing, and with all the betting, there are tons of numbers to analyze; I kind of fell in love with it,” he said. As much as he loved his “dream job,” however, Dado also had a dream of starting his own business, which he’s been working on for three years. Dado and his partner, Dr. David Chao, started Sports Injury Central, a sports media company that details the injury status of professional athletes to sports-betters and fantasy players. “As much as I love workTURN TO DADO ON B11

I have a sign I hang up every December that reads “Christmas calories don’t count.” I need one made saying “During the holidays, all nutritional requirements are suspended.” Once a year, we deserve to reward ourselves with a clear conscience. And after 2021, we all know we have earned it. A friend recounted the New Year’s Eve menu of dishes each guest brought. A charcuterie board that included M&Ms was the highlight. One guest offered up a vegetable plate. Everyone gave it a sideeye, like they weren’t entirely sure just what those odd green things were. I have no problem leaning in to this surfeit of holiday goodies, but this delicious binge wasn’t my idea and I take no responsibility for it. Everyone I talk to is feeling a bit over-sugared just now. It’s the American way. Most of you only indulge at holiday parties. My parents threw parties, but my mother used to whip up two types of candy, six different types of cookies, and pies that lasted through the holidays, party or no party. The closest thing to a vegetable served was a cheese dip with salsa in it. Despite my questionable kitchen skills, I managed to bake four types of cookies and a chocolate mousse. Along with that, we received gracious gifts of cookies, holiday breads and boxes of See’s candy. Somehow we managed to polish them all off. This week, it will be

Tri-City debuts workforce initiative  Business groups help hospital create job seeker platform By Tigist Layne

REGION — Tri-City Medical Center, in collaboration with several regional business groups and colleges, recently launched an online platform helping students and job seekers find professional opportunities that fit their specific interests and qualifications. The Student Opportunities for Career Awareness and Learning, or SOCAL initiative — a joint effort by Tri-City and the San Diego North Economic Development Council, chambers of commerce in Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista, and MiraCosta and Palomar colleges — is part of Tri-City’s broader COASTAL Commitment community outreach effort. Many of the jobs, internships and other opportunities highlighted on SOCAL are middle-wage jobs that require less than a four-year college degree, in hopes of providing ac-

cess to people with a range of qualifications and backgrounds. According to Aaron Byzak, chief external affairs officer for Tri-City, COASTAL Commitment aims to target social and healthcare issues that disproportionately impact people's outcomes in life. “For us, it's about empowering young people to take hold of their lives and really pursue careers that are going to help them live a better life and have better health and social

outcomes,” said Byzak, who is also the incoming chairman of the San Diego North Economic Development Council. The website allows visitors to browse through dozens of different industries and occupations in North County including healthcare, manufacturing, communication technology, construction, software and more. Visitors can also watch videos and interviews of real people who are actually working in those positions.

Discovering the magic of Harrison Serenity Ranch soul

S

o there I was, enjoying the sounds of a drum circle at my spiritual center in Fallbrook to celebrate the Solstice. The lady heading up this group, Vicky Morgan, spoke of gatherings on her property called the Harrison Serenity Ranch. Of course, my radar went up to hear more about a magical “glampsite” atop Palomar Mountain. Talks of gatherings, retreats, and special events of the spiritual nature ensued. Now I was all ears. I approached the nice lady and told her I would love to make the trek up the mountain to check out what she was up to and possibly do a column since this is Soul on Fire, North County’s Quest for Enlightenment, after all. With the COVID shut-

down, I wasn’t venturing out to many new places for the readership lately, but not this last Sunday. I was looking for enlightenment to share. It was crystal clear and sunny right after the rains — a perfect day for a drive on a New Year’s weekend. Everything was green and lush, and the air was fresh in a way that made you grateful to be alive. I got my roommate to come along for the adventure up Highway 76 without knowing where we were going exactly. This is the quest part. GPS was set for Harrison Serenity Ranch; we headed up the hill from Fallbrook, stopping first at a roadside stand for some fresh oranges, local honey, avos, and persimmons, already enjoying the beginning of a whimsical road trip. As we went further east, the green on the rolling hills was as vibrant as I’ve ever seen. The sycamore trees and oaks adorned the winding country road. Enchanting. We turned down a gravel road with fragrant orange groves on either side,

Welcome to Stewy’s Fun House water spot chris ahrens

W

alking down the ramp leading to D street, I encounter a surfer coming up the ramp after leaving the water. “How the waves?” I ask. I can see for myself that it’s 2 to 3 feet, peaky and glassy, and a bit fat due to the rising tide, but I ask anyway. (Asking about the surf to someone leaving the water is a traditional greeting, kind of surfing’s equivalent of “how are you?”) “Fun,” he replies, offering the expected reply before moving on. “Fun” is a category of surf between “gutless” and “epic.” Nobody ever gets beaten up or barreled in “fun” surf and few if any good swimmers have ever drowned in it. If I were to define it, fun surf consists of waves between 1 and 5 feet, offering a rider multiple opportunities to turn, cut back and hit the lip. There’s nothing threatening or spectacular about it and yet it tends to linger in your memory like a favorite song. There are surfboards known as “fun shapes.” These are primarily speed eggs that ride well in the

afore-described conditions. Every real surfer has at least one fun shape in the bag. Thinking about it, however, I wonder what the point is of waves and surfboards that are not fun. Maybe they’re for recreation or something required to stay in shape or tune up for better days. I assume some surfers use unfun waves to practice for upcoming contests. Then there’s the extremely unfun world of big waves. I’ll let surf over 20 feet be someone else’s bad dream. While waves in the red zone may be fun for the few

dozen elite athletes among us, it sends most everyone else to the beach or into survival mode. I am all about fun surf and fun surfboards and wonder why I ever entertained going beyond them. At his core, surfer, shaper, designer, inventor, artist and harp player Bill Stewart (Stewart Surfboards—yeah, that Bill Stewart) is focused on everything fun. “Stewy’s Fun House,” which occupies the space directly behind Bill’s main house, is a wonderland consisting of a well-stocked bar, a musical stage, a pingpong table and a billiards

table. On the ceiling are some of the surfboards Bill has built and airbrushed. My favorite among them features Stewart’s heroes, The Three Stooges. Out of all the boards in this vast collection, why this one? Well, because it represents Bill’s take on surfing and life, things he generally doesn’t take too seriously. Anyone who knows him can tell you that Bill is competitive. He likes to win, a habit he acquired as a top surfer for over five decades, a leader in the longboard renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, an inventor, a master designer, and a brilliant harp player. (I’m certain I’ve left something out.) Regardless the game, he wins more often than he loses. I consider myself slightly above average at pingpong and so challenge him to a game. I won’t call it a mistake, but it was hard getting anything past him. When after three games I broke into double digits I considered it a win and left the table stoked to have made a few decent shots. From there, we move to the deck, toast the sunset and I try not to spill my drink as we laugh hard at the dying of the light. My friend Bill can add master storyteller to his resume.

CVS Pharmacy joins network amid TRICARE program changes By Staff

CVS Pharmacy has nearly 10,000 pharmacy locations, including in Target stores. Beneficiaries who have a prescription at Walmart, Sam’s Club, or any other impacted pharmacy, should transfer it to a new network pharmacy to avoid having to pay the full cost of the prescription up front or having to file a claim for reimbursement. Beneficiaries who filled a prescription at one of the impacted pharmacies will receive a communication from the Department of Defense’s retail pharmacy contractor, Express Scripts, who will provide recommendations on filling prescriptions at a new network pharmacy. Lists of network pharmacies are also available on the Express Scripts website or by calling (877) 3631303.

energy in this space for people to come and experience. There is something sacred here, and I am just the steward called to preserve and share this amazing gift with the community.” The indigenous people of this bountiful valley also gave Harrison an aquifer, and he was able to claim water rights for his land. The aquifer is full of magic artesian water for the visitors. It is historic in that Nate would offer his water to weary travelers on horseback or buggy making the trek up the mountain. This 67-acre property sits at about 3,600 elevation, and the top of the mountain sits a little over 6,000 feet. It would take days for travelers to make this trek. The Harrison Serenity Ranch is a gift to San Diego County because of the efforts of Morgan, who humbly considers herself a custodian and steward rather than a landowner. In return, she walks in the celestial realm that Harrison must have enjoyed amid the majestic oak and fragrant pine. The stunning boulder formations look out for miles to the vast valley below and the mesmerizing galaxies above with the expansive sea in the middle. If you are very quiet, one can feel the power of the vortexed ley lines and the wonder that must have been experienced for the hundred years Harrison was alive on this mountain. His spirit and memory will indeed be preserved under the care and direction of Morgan. I’m just scratching the surface here, so go to www. har r isonserenit y ranch. com and give Vicky a call or text to arrange a guided walk around the property. Plan a stay and breathe the fresh air, drink the magical artesian water and stargaze like no other after taking in a spectacular sunset from this enchanted forest in our own backyard. You won’t come back the same.

REGION — Several new changes to TRICARE retail pharmacies took effect last month. Starting Dec. 15, CVS Pharmacy joined the TRICARE network while Walmart, Sam’s Club, and some community pharmacies left the network. TRICARE, formerly known as the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services, is a health care program of the United States Department of Defense Military Health System. Previously, the TRICARE retail pharmacy network offered access to more than 59,000 pharmacies. With this change, nearly 5,000 more retail pharmacy locations will be added and nearly 90% of beneficiaries will have access to a network pharmacy within five miles of their home.

and spiritual gatherings of all kinds. Music and drumming is a favorite pastime on the land since the owner, Vicky Morgan, heads up the San Diego Women’s Drumming Circle group. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Shadow, the Armenian mountain dog that patrols the property. A faithful spirit animal. But there is so much more to be found here! According to the San Diego History Center, this land has a rich history spanning 10,000 years. It is currently conducting archeological digs and research to preserve the important history that lives here. They have already come up with over 50,000 artifacts currently on display at their exhibit in Balboa Park. You see, Nate Harrison was the first black slave to own land west of the Mississippi and the first black man to own property in San Diego. Granted by the Luiseño Indian tribe for him to homestead, Harrison was the first non-native to cohabitate this side of Palomar Mountain in the 1800s. Born into slavery in Kentucky, he died a legend at 100 years old, and Ms. Vicky aims to memorialize this fascinating human with the Nate Harrison Foundation that will bring educational tourism to the site. Plans for adding two 50-foot yurts are in the works, along with her yoga deck, sweat lodge, stable with goats and chickens, outdoor showers and kitchen area, amphitheater, and improvements to the existing structures and stunning lookout deck. “There is sacred geometry here and one of the world’s most powerful vortexes,” states Morgan. “Nate Harrison built his cabin at the 33.333 latitudes and longitude ley line.

Close to home? San Diego County has much to offer

H

appy New Year. Since this is my first column of 2022, I feel as though I should talk about grand plans to visit faraway places, but I’m a bit gun-shy when it comes to the word “plan.” On my New Year’s Day walk with my longtime friend Wanda, we agreed that we need to keep plans and expectations for this year in check — partly to protect from disappointment and partly to protect our wallets. We’ve both heard too many tales about people who booked vacations and lost large sums when plans were canceled because of coronavirus. Recent announcements regarding cruises from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention are not encouraging, either. On Dec. 30, the CDC advised avoiding cruise ships. Period. I feel some sympathy for the cruise industry — it lost $10 billion last year because it was forced to a standstill by the pandemic, but cruising is the antithesis of safe travel now. And the daily news of thousands of canceled airline flights does nothing to encourage making travel plans. What to do?

hit the road e’louise ondash Perhaps for the foreseeable future we should stick close to home and explore San Diego County. Here are a few ideas from the San Diego Tourism Authority, a few recent emails and my photo library, and don’t forget your masks: • Sesame Place San Diego — The former site of Aquatica Water Park in Chula Vista has been transformed into a “Sesame Street” theme park that opens in March. It will still include water attractions as well as themed rides, popular-puppet parades and a stage production. It is operated by SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment and Sesame Workshop. • Birch Aquarium at Scripps — Little Blue Penguins (that’s really their name) are coming this summer to the 2,900-square-foot exhibit designed just for them. Their habitat includes an 18,000-gallon pool and an amphitheater and “discovery cave” where guests can watch the penguins social-

ize and build nests. Also at the aquarium: behind-the-scenes tours of the caring, breeding and feeding of the seahorse collection. • San Diego Zoo’s Explorers Basecamp — Coming in February: 4 acres of “wildlife adventure” where kids can climb, scramble and jump in areas designed to teach about habitats around the world. It also promises “one-of-a-kind experiences with animals” to help connect young visitors with the natural world and understand the importance of conserving wildlife. Also: Africa Rocks, six habitats of Africa, and Monkey Trails and Forest Tales, a multilevel forest with plenty of creatures. • Iipay-Tipai Kumeyaay Mut Niihepok Exhibit (Land of the First People), Old Town San Diego State Historic Park — There’s something new in Old Town. Learn about indigenous people and the environment in San Diego before Europeans arrived. Because the project

was finished during the pandemic, a digital and photo tour also are available. To add to the day’s fun, take the Coaster right to Old Town’s front door. • Whale watching — See four types of dolphins and whales — grays, humpbacks, fins, minkes and even the ginormous blues — right off our coast by catching a ride on a 49-passenger catamaran with Oceanside Adventures. This month is peak season for the whale migration. • Mission Trails Regional Park — Expand your horizons and visit this East County park that is less than an hour’s drive from any point in North County. This 8,000-acre open space offers 60 miles of trails and a sense of what San Diego County was like before the arrival of Juan Cabrillo in 1542. Visit the state-of-theart Visitor and Interpretive Center and see why Mission Trails is often referred to as San Diego’s Third Jewel, after Balboa Park and Mission Bay Park.

COMING THIS SUMMER to Birch Aquarium at Scripps in La Jolla: Little Blue Penguins, which measure 13-17 inches high and weigh about 3 pounds. Visitors will be able to watch them socialize and build nests. Courtesy photo

BUYING BEER at the source, such as Pure Project in Carlsbad, above, is among the author’s beeresolutions in 2022.

Photos by Ryan Woldt

It’s a new year, time for beeresolutions

C

heers! and Happy New Year! How has it been for you so far? I spent my New Year’s — stranded by weather for an extra day — in an Airbnb in the mountains. I went for a hike by a snow-covered river, drank good beer, watched some football and stared into the fireplace. It was fairly idyllic, actually. While the flames wrapped themselves around log after log, I fell into a Zenlike meditation as I drank a fine local can of beer. It was the beer that my brain decided to focus on. Dang, this is good! I kept thinking. Then, I want more of this in my life. More good beer. More moments like this one. At some point I decided to make a commitment to beer in 2022 in the form of some resolutions, nay, beeresolutions. • Drink Less Beer: This might sound odd as the first resolution on this list con-

cheers! north county

ryan woldt sidering this is a pro-beer column, so let me rephrase. • Drink Less Beer, but Drink Better Beer: That’s better. I drink a lot of beer and, frankly, I don’t always really enjoy it. Sometimes I drink beer just because it is there. Sometimes I drink it while doing other things. I crack the can. Enjoy that first sip and then all of a sudden it is gone. In 2022, I plan to make time to appreciate more than just that first sip. Brewers are craftspeople and I resolve to treat their creations with the respect they deserve from start to finish. I may end up drinking less beer as I take

more time to appreciate the good stuff* and that’s okay. * “Good stuff” is an arbitrary term. What you think is good beer and what I do doesn’t have to be the same thing! • Repeat: In what feels like a never-ending effort to try every new beer, I rarely repeat a purchase. Beer FOMO is real and I’ve fallen prey to it. I often give up the known great pint for the unknown liquid that has the potential to be the next best thing. The Pandemic (the capital P feels right) has been helping me by limiting the number of draft lists I look at on a regular basis. I pay attention to the beer scene and I still feel out of the loop as to what is out there right now. In 2022, I resolve to repeat-drink the beers I find the most enjoyable, creating my own core beer list to enjoy time after time. Of

course, I’ll also be working to reduce the anxiety I currently feel that I might be missing out by not trying something new. • Leave My Beer Stereotypes Behind: Let me tell you a story. I’ve always been against the hazy beer trend.* In the beginning, all hazy beers tasted the same to me. They lacked that hop forward bitterness I craved, and there was a mad rush to put hazy IPAs on the market, which led to a proliferation of not-so-good products available. Plus, everyone else seemed to love them and the rebellious side of me decided that I didn’t. Fast-forward to New Year’s. That beer I was sipping by the fireplace, I had picked it at random from the singles shelf at a nearby liquor emporium. I didn’t read the label particularly closely. If you remember, I found myself thinking,

Dang! This is good. I’ll break the suspense. It was a hazy pale ale. This isn’t the first time in the past year that has happened. In 2022, I resolve to put my beer stereotypes behind me and be more open-minded about what beers I try and try not to pass judgment based on style or brand or reputation. * I realize hazy beers have been everyone’s jam for more than two years and calling it a trend is a bit dismissive. I’m resolving to leave my beer stereotypes behind but I’m not all the way there yet. • Be Brand Aware: If you paid any attention to the beer industry in 2021, you know there was a spotlight placed on toxic work cultures here in San Diego and around the world.

chat about the year’s harvest. Next time you’ll want to visit them all with their special focus on a Mediterranean style of winemaking: Cougar Vineyards, Danza Del Sol, Fazelli Cellars, Frangipani Estate, Gershun Bachus Vintners, Leoness Cellars, Masia de la Vinya, Oak Mountain, Robert Renzoni Vineyards and Somerset Vineyards & Winery. Each winery had a barrel sample, one of their bottles of the future, along with a couple of current releases. Accompanying these new tastes were small bites of big-tasting appetizers. When you visit Robert Renzoni Vineyards, I hope you are fortunate enough to visit with Fred Renzoni, the elder statesman of the winery. Fred’s done it all in the wine business. Previous generations of the Renzoni family began life with wine in 1886 in a little Italian village called Fano. In the ensuing years, the family set down roots in Buffalo, New York, where in the ’70s, Fred ran a hugely successful Italian import business including some of the top wines from that country and France. Fred’s son Robert saw success with wine in Los Angeles, then in Temecula’s budding wine country.

He reunited with Fred in 2006 and they purchased the property, now standing as a tribute to their Renzoni ancestors. They now make award-winning wines with the expert help of Olivia Bue, who joined the Renzoni family some seven years ago. Bue, an Encinitas native and UC Davis graduate, gained notoriety in Australia, and wound up in Napa Valley’s famed Cakebread winery before the Renzonis coaxed her to “return home.” The results have been spectacular with major wine industry awards.

Oceanside Unified School District unveils new logo By Samantha Nelson

OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Unified School District has unveiled a new logo, scrapping the lighthouse image for a simple letter "O" with different shades of blue and a pop of yellow. Back in July, the school board approved work on a new logo to replace the current one, which features a lighthouse shining over the district’s name. The board hired Alpha Graphics, an Oceanside-based graphic design company, who also partnered with Try J Advertising to create the new logo. The school district sent out surveys to its families asking their opinions on what they would like to see in a new logo. Communications Director Donald Bendz said they received 120 responses. “Many people spoke of the district’s diversity and the importance of being a coastal community,” Bendz said at the Dec. 14 board meeting. Bendz also noted that a lot of participants wanted to move away from using the lighthouse symbolism and find something new to represent the district. A 10-person committee was then formed with two high school students, five staff members and three community members to guide the design team on the new logo. Both met sev-

Fellow Trustee Eric Joyce thought the contrasting colors of the first option would look better on stickers, apparel and any other items that would be used to promote the district with the new logo, though he would have preferred even bolder colors.

“One of the things we know about this space is that it’s disjointed and there are lots of resources, but it’s hard to navigate. So if we can help become kind of a one-stop-shop in this particular area that would be a great achievement.” Job explorers, interested businesses and the community can learn more about the SOCAL initiative and experience SOCAL’s interactive website by visiting www.socalworkforce.org.

“We believe supporting the SOCAL initiative not only helps support our future workforce but also strengthens the health and prosperity of our region by advancing economic empowerment,” Byzak said. “By integrating education and workforce development through a platform that everyone can take advantage of, we hope to make economic advancement more equitable in North County.”

When asked what he’ll miss most about working at the Club, Dado said Opening Day, one of his favorite days of the year. “Craig has been a solid contributor to our efforts at Del Mar over the past two decades,” said Joe Harper,

DMTC's CEO. “His intelligence and instincts in the marketing business helped Del Mar rise up in the racing industry and for that, we'll be forever grateful. “We wish him nothing but well as he moves on to other things.”

students fly high like the seagull and eliminate the brain drain that happens,” she said. Evans also said the O’s circular shape represents the district’s inclusiveness. Trustee Mike Blessing, the newly elected board clerk, said he originally preferred the third option but was willing to get behind option one given its popularity. “I can’t wait to see it behind me in my Zoom,” said Trustee Stacy Begin, who was re-elected to lead the board as its president for another year at the same meeting. The new logo has already taken over the district’s website.

JAN. 7, 2022

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A hectic period begins to wind down. Take time to draw some deep breaths and relax before getting into your next project. A long-absent family member makes contact. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re eager to move forward with a new challenge that suddenly dropped in your lap. But you’d be wise to take this one step at a time to allow new developments to come through. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re almost ready to make a commitment. A lingering doubt or two, however, should be resolved before you move ahead. An associate could provide important answers. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Caution is still the watchword as you move closer toward a decision about a new situation. If you act too fast, you might miss some vital warning signs. Go slowly and stay alert. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your new goal looks promising, and your golden touch does much to enhance its prospects for success. In your private life, Cupid does his best to make your new relationship special. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) That impatient side of yours is looking to goad you into moving before you’re ready to take that big step. Stay calm and cool. Let things fall into place before you act.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A legal matter you hoped could finally be settled could be a pesky problem for a while, until all the parties agree to stop disagreeing with each other. Be patient. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Partnerships — personal or professional — which began before the new year take on new importance. They also reveal some previously hidden risks. So be warned. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your associates are firmly on your side, and that persistent problem that has caused you to delay some activities should soon be resolved to your satisfaction. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Favorable changes continue to dominate, and you should be responding positively as they emerge. Someone wants to become more involved in what you’re doing. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A friend wants to share a secret that could answer some questions you’ve wondered about for a long time. Meanwhile, travel aspects continue to be strong. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Stay on your new course despite so-called well-meaning efforts to discourage you. Rely on your deep sense of self-awareness to guide you to do what’s right for you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the capacity to meet challenges that others might find overwhelming, and turn them into successful ventures. © 2022 King Features Synd., Inc.
