Oceanside’s new beachfront resort opens By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — After years of planning and construction, two new hotels that make up the new downtown beachfront resort have opened for business. Mission Pacific Hotel was the first to open on May 19 followed by the Seabird Resort on May 27, which was celebrated by a grand opening ceremony that brought developers, hotel management, city officials and other local leaders together. The two hotels make up the newest and largest oceanfront resort in San Diego County in more than 50 years. “It has been a long journey,” said Mayor Esther Sanchez at the grand opening ceremony. “This is our dream.” Hyatt Hotels Corporation is the management company in charge of running the two hotels.

REGION — Assembly Bill 1139, introduced to the California State Assembly by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego), will have significant impacts on the solar industry statewide and has left some feeling like they are being made out to be the enemy. The bill, which was read for the third time Wednesday on the Assembly floor, received just 28 votes in support — not enough for passage, but more amendments are expected. The bill focuses on net energy metering (NEM) rates paid to solar customers as credit for any extra energy their system produces and eliminates other benefits, such as recouping the customer’s original investment, that potential customers look for when choosing to install solar panels on their homes. Michael Powers, co-founder of San Diego-based Stellar Solar, was there at the very beginning of consumer solar energy. “At that time it was taking about 12 years to get a return on your investment because solar was still pretty expensive,” Powers said. “So if you bought a solar system, you could save enough on your electric bill through net metering within 12 years to recoup your investment. Now it only takes 5-6 years to recoup your investment.” Essentially, the bill is purported to fix equity concerns. According to Gonzalez, non-solar customers, many of whom cannot afford solar panTURN TO SOLAR ON A11

Beautiful Glass Blown ART Studio & Gallery
Barrio Glassworks is the realization of a family dream. After a serendipitous accident derailed their winter plans in 2012, the Raskin/Devlin family landed on the famous glassblowing island of Murano, Italy. Like so many others, Drew, Mary and Gary were transfi xed as they watched master glassblowers at work, not realizing they were about to embark on the journey of their lives. Drew Raskin, an emerging multi-faceted artist, fell in love with the form and it was not long before his parents did too. Barrio Glassworks is a public glassblowing studio and retail gallery located in the heart of downtown Carlsbad. It opened in December 2020. Situated in the historic Barrio community of Carlsbad Village, the studio and gallery provide a unique experience and environment for residents and visitors alike. The studio includes an open viewing section for the public, allowing an up-close and personal look at the mesmerizing art of glassblowing every day. After watching live glassblowing, you will certainly want to visit the Barrio Glassworks gallery that features beautifully designed, handmade objects by glass artists from San Diego, Southern California and beyond. They are dedicated to representing artists at all stages of their career whether emerging, mid-career or well established. They are currently showcasing the work of San Diego-based glass artist Nic McGuire in their gallery. This show features “Monach Flutter” a wall installation of butterflies whose colors and shadows dance all over the walls. After such inspiration, you can experience the movement and beauty of hot glass by making your own unique glass paperweight during a 30-minute experience assisted by Barrio Glassworks team members. Friends and family are welcome to watch and photograph. Individual sessions can be booked online and groups of five or more can be scheduled in person at the studio or by calling 760.696.3288.

Study explores changes to Rancho Santa Fe Road By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — A study presented to the Encinitas City Council gave several alternatives to possible future changes to the Rancho Santa Fe corridor that would aim to improve the mobility of the roadway. The Rancho Santa Fe Road Task Force was started by the City Council in 2019 to hold public forum discussions about the stretch of the road from Avenida La Posta/Calle Acervo to Encinitas Boulevard. In late 2019 the council funded a corridor analysis of the road to come up with

different solutions to traffic problems. No cost or feasibility analysis has been made on the alternatives presented to the council. Currently, the stretch of Rancho Santa Fe Road consists of seven all-way stop signs and in every alternative presented, at least two of them would remain. The preferred alternative determined by the task force included adding roundabouts at Lone Jack Road and El Camino Del Norte while keeping the rest of the all-way stops in place. The study also looked at other improvements such as painting crosswalks and conducting a new speed survey for the corridor. “Once all these other improvements have gone in, the ones other than the intersection control modifications, we can conduct another speed survey and see if we can lower the speed limit on the roadway,” City Traffic Engineer Abe Bandegan said. “Hopefully, I’m
very optimistic. We’ve been successful previously.” Bandegan said that while the intersection control improvements need full feasibility and cost analysis studies done, the improvements to crosswalks and shoulder and walkway enhancements could be funded in the next fiscal year. While Bandegan said the task force preferred to keep the all-way stops only unless they were replaced by roundabouts, public comments were strongly against keeping so many stop signs along the busy stretch of road. “The number of times a car has to stop in response to a stop is multiplied from one needing to stop to as many cars as there are between the two stop signs,” resident Wayland Meyers said. “Just as an example, a trip from Encinitas Boulevard to El Camino Del Norte, which normally takes about four minutes during non-rush hour, can take up to 20 minutes during the p.m. rush hour and require a car to come to a complete stop 50 times. That’s an awful lot of stops and starts.” Councilmember Joe Mosca represents the area of Encinitas the road travels through. Mosca acknowledged that while there is not a consensus on how to address the issue, the community is together in its desire to see a change to the corridor. “The task force is made up of people who live on Rancho Santa Fe Road, off of Rancho Santa Fe Road, have been in the community for 40 years, 10 years, five years,” Mosca said. “So there is a diversity. We have surveyed the community and there is support for what we’ve been talking about.” Mosca also urged the City Council for support to fund the addition of crosswalks in the corridor this fiscal year. “There are no crosswalks throughout this entire corridor,” Mosca said. “And we’ve unfortunately had a number of serious accidents and fatalities.”

as well as the kiosk location. Developers and hotel management aimed to create an atmosphere that resonates with its local en-
vironment. The resort partnered with the Oceanside Museum of Art to curate its own gallery in the west wing of
the Seabird, highlighting Oceanside artists, and more than 40% of the resort’s artwork spread throughout both hotels are from Southern California artists. Pictures of Oceanside’s past are also hung throughout the hotel, showcasing coastal life and activities. “There were so many things that this community asked for, and Jeremy listened,” Sanchez said. “This was something that we all had a hand in — every member of the public had a chance to say what it is they wanted to have here.” Beyond the atmosphere, the resort is also striving to build partnerships with local organizations and businesses. The resort is also still looking for more hires and hopes to employ as many locals as possible. Cohen said a majority of the resort’s employees so far are Oceanside residents.

Will recall force Democrats into more moderate stances?
State housing bills threaten North County coastal cities
By Judy Livingston
ur communities are under threat. The state is using its legislative power to shift development authority away from the public and our local cities to the state. Historically, such power has resided with cities for a reason. Local control allows residents a stronger voice on residential development through public comments, hearings and city review processes, which through Senate Bill 9 and Assembly Bill 500 will largely cease. Stripping away city oversight and local review and allowing developers a fast lane to expand the housing on one lot to up to four units will cause immeasurable and irreversible damage to our neighborhoods. There’s no mandate for affordability in SB 9. SB 9 is unlikely to create more affordable housing in coastal areas as any property will be sold at market rate and the developers must cover construction, demolition, re-landscaping costs, as well as the main goal of any business — their profit. This is a bonanza for developers but it comes at serious costs to the very fiber of our communities and our own lives. Studies of expensive areas increasing density indicate that the result is not more affordable housing but only more dense expensive housing. They result in smaller spaces and crowded conditions but not smaller price tags. What will be the result of allowing four homes to replace one, and with no requirements that parking is
We were shocked to see Voice of San Diego using intensely personal attacks against one city that informed their residents — without bias — of pending bills. required? Congestion, noise, pollution, lack of street parking availability, over-taxed schools, roads and infrastructure. This will destroy the quality of life for both owners and renters in the place where it matters most, our homes and their neighborhoods. We are honestly shocked that state legislators we have elected are willing and able to so misrepresent us, especially in such a permanently damaging way. We’ve written to our senator, Toni Atkins, who is the author of SB 9, and Assemblymember Chris Ward (Solana Beach and south), who we believe also currently supports both bills. But more voices are needed. One problem leading to laws that violate citizens’ wishes is representatives working in isolation, interpreting the voices of a few as the voices of all. As key bills are developed, citizens need to be informed clearly as to all impacts and then offer feedback. Where city governance is affected, our cities can undertake the important role of keeping us informed. We were shocked to see Voice of San Diego using intensely personal attacks against one city that
informed their residents — without bias — of pending bills. This inflammatory, biased VOSD article was a vendetta, not journalism, and discourages the transparency we need. SB 9 passed out of the California State Senate on May 26, with 28 of the 50 voting yes. If you will let your opinion be known quickly before these bills are passed through the Assembly, that could help. Just google the Assemblymember for your city, for example, “Assemblymember Encinitas contact” to reach the contact page and write a brief comment. And also contact the governor. This is our chance to have our voices heard about both SB 9 and AB 500. AB 500 also removes much local housing authority, subjecting housing development to the approval of the California Coastal Commission, an unelected appointed authority not directly answerable to the public. Shocking but true. If these bills, now on a fast track, become law, our lives will be permanently changed. And there will be no going back. Judy Livingston Solana Beach
or the last 11 years, Democrats have controlled every statewide office in California, while gradually building their majorities in both houses of the state Legislature to levels significantly above the twothirds needed to make Republicans irrelevant. But the instant the recall election against Gov. Gavin Newsom qualified for a vote this fall, things changed for the state’s Democrats. Virtually unopposed and uncontrolled for years, they have passed one extreme liberal measure after another, from a ban on cash bail that was later canceled by the voters to massive spending on housing for the homeless, many of whom are not interested in moving there, and much more. They have overridden some local zoning authority and some lawmakers are now trying to pass measures that would all but end single family zoning in the state, an effort to eliminate what they deride as “urban sprawl,” a phenomenon many homeowners call breathing room. Now comes the recall, and suddenly the Democrats who dominate in Sacramento are being forcibly reminded that California voters on the whole are not super-lefties who want to deprive people of their vision of the mythical California Dream. For even if its success is rendered unlikely by the sheer dominance of the Democratic Party in voter registrations, the recall raises the possibility that Californians could elect a Republican governor, with veto powers over many liberal proposals for
at least a year. That power could last longer if such a Republican should be reelected next year, the way movie muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger was in 2006, three years after becoming governor via the recall of ex-Gov. Gray Davis. This looming possibility might have legislative Democrats thinking seriously about some of their proposals, things like forcing the University of California to give up its hospitals’ links to Dignity Health facilities around the state or compelling cities and counties to allow apartment buildings of up to eight units on every piece of land, regardless of what local citizens or officials might want for their communities. In short, if Democrats are smart, they will moderate their views and their aims during the run-up to the recall vote. This will be especially true if polls begin to show some lessening of the current approximate 10% edge no votes on the recall have among likely voters over yes votes. It is certainly true there is no recall candidate in the wings who can match the appeal the 2003 Schwarzenegger had to young and old because of his movie persona. But if the yes side gains traction among even a few Democrats, all bets will be off.
All it would take for that to happen would be another hypocritical Newsom gaffe like his oversized, indoor dinner at the ultra-expensive and exclusive Michelin-rated French Laundry restaurant in Napa County last fall, where he was joined by influential lobbyist pals. At the time, state rules promulgated by Newsom prohibited gatherings of the size and configuration of his. That one incident did more to bring about the recall than any other single Newsom action or position. Imagine the impact if the governor commits a similar indiscretion now. With Newsom, in part because his buddies include some of San Francisco’s super-wealthy elite, this is a possibility. If there’s one thing the ultra-liberal Democrats who now control Sacramento could not stand, it would be having a Republican governor willing to veto their pet social-engineering proposals. So any day now, expect them to wake up and realize they must curb some of their enthusiasm for a while for fear of forcing Newsom to choose between vetoing their bills or weakening his own chances of beating back the recall. There’s also the possibility the recall itself may lose, but a couple of those on the list of candidates for replacement governor perform well enough to become a credible threat to Newsom’s reelection a year later. That would be unprecedented, but with a recall, precedents don’t appear to matter very much. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

After launch, Clean Energy Alliance reviews budget By Steve Puterski
REGION — As the launch of Clean Energy Alliance (CEA) is underway, the board of directors heard the new energy service provider’s Fiscal Year 2021-22 budget during its May 27 meeting. Barbara Boswell, CEO of Clean Energy Alliance, reported the launch saw a 7% opt-out rate, lower than the 10% originally projected. The operating budget estimates revenues at $53.5 million and $51.5 million in expenses and will roll the $2-million surplus into its reserve account. However, Boswell also cautioned the board of potential rate increases this summer from upward movement in the energy market, heatwaves and reliability, impacts of Texas’ winter disaster, low reservoir levels (for hydroelectric power) and the reduction of use from the Diablo Canyon Power Plant, a nuclear facility on the central coast. Still, Boswell said the budget is tracking and the surplus from this year and last year will be funneled into the reserve account. By next year, the default power provider for Carlsbad, Solana Beach and Del Mar, will have $3 million in reserves, Boswell said. “After we have gotten all our revenue in and all our expenses, that’s what we are projecting to be in our reserves,” she added. As for the launch, Boswell said most residential customers are now part of Clean Energy Alliance, with most of the businesses and residents enrolled in the net energy metering program coming online in June. She said there were 2,262 opt-outs in Carlsbad and Del Mar combined (3,071 total when including customers from the Solana Energy Alliance). Also, 66 customers opted up to the Green Impact Plan, which is 100% renewable energy, plus the 120 Green Impact Plan customers transferring from the Solana Energy Alliance. Del Mar City Councilman Dave Druker, representing the city of Del Mar on the board, asked what the public entity is doing to keep large-scale businesses and school districts from opting out and the status of progress with those districts. Boswell said the Clean Energy Alliance has spoken to several larger businesses and "entice them to not opt-out.” As for school districts, Boswell said the CEA can develop a program with lower rates as San Diego
Please s treat other t c e p s e r h t wi
Gas & Electric treats districts as any other business. “They’re excited about CEA rollout, and we want to work with them to develop a special rate,” Boswell said. “With SDG&E, they’re served on the same rate schedule as other businesses.” The board is also considering hiring two contracted positions — a programs/key account manager ($50,000) and a human resources consultant. Most of the three-person board, including Carlsbad Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel, agreed to hold off on the human resources position until after the summer.
As for potential rate increases, Boswell’s noted those variables and how Western Community Energy, which serves Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Norco, Wildomar, Perris and Hemet in Riverside County, filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy earlier this year. However, Boswell, along with Western Community Energy officials, according to media reports, said the pandemic and the summer heatwave in 2020 as major factors. Also, Gov. Gavin Newsom banned power shutoffs due to non-payment, which led to a significant rise in delinquencies costing the agency about $6 million, according to The Press-En-
terprise in Riverside. Boswell said about 40% of Western Community Energy’s customers are low-income and are enrolled in the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) program. Many of those, she said, were hit hard by the pandemic, thus not able to pay their bills. She also noted the California Public Utilities Commission and Newsom added consumer protections which impacted Western Community Energy’s cash flow. By contrast, Clean Energy Alliance has about 10% of its customers active in the CARE program. Boswell said they took note
of how Solana Energy Alliance operated over the past year, leading her to believe Clean Energy Alliance is in a good position. The state will lift the pandemic response to power shutoffs in June for most small businesses, she said, followed by residential customers later this year. Western Community Energy, meanwhile, owed creditors at least $100 million and had less than $50 million in assets, according to Bloomberg. Also, Western Community Energy has just $34,000 in its operating account and $5 million in another, which is mostly committed to energy providers, according to The Press-Enterprise. Additionally, customers will see an increase between $5 and $10 per month, while the agency still owes millions and its lender refused to allow the power authority to draw from its line of credit unless it raised rates. Despite the fiscal emergency, Boswell said, Western Community Energy is re-organizing its debt to get on a stronger footing. She stressed the Clean Energy Alliance is not in a similar position, as it did not launch under the same economic conditions. Boswell said Clean Energy Alliance has been conservative in its approach to its budget and securing energy.
CEA estimates upfront cost for new members By Bill Slane
REGION — After the San Diego County Board of Supervisors showed interest in joining a community choice energy program, the Clean Energy Alliance has estimated a $50,000 upfront cost to join its program. That estimate is a combination of the feasibility study that needs to be completed for new members, estimated at $30,000, along with an additional estimated $20,000 to complete the new plans that are required by the California Public Utilities Commission. Clean Energy Alliance CEO Barbara Boswell says that in the future those costs could be shared by different entities if they are looking to join Clean Energy Alliance at the same time. The County Board of Supervisors has shown interest in joining either the Clean Energy Alliance, which launched May 1 this year or with San Diego
Community Power, which has been operating for municipal customers since March 1. It is unclear at this time what San Diego Community Power will be asking its prospective members for upfront costs. Clean Energy Alliance says since upfront costs will be reimbursed within the first three years, the organization does not see it as a major impediment to drawing new members. “I mean I guess we’ll have to see but I think that it wouldn’t stop someone who was really interested in exploring this,” Chairwoman Kristi Becker said. “There are costs, they know that, and this is also something we can reimburse.” Del Mar, Solana Beach and Carlsbad, the founding cities of Clean Energy Alliance, all fronted $150,000 to get the community choice program started that will also be reimbursed within three years.
“So really this is a bargain, especially if a couple of cities came together,” Becker said. “This is something that they’re going to get back.” Becker also noted the costs of prospective members have the potential to be waived under some circumstances. The County Board of Supervisors adopted new guiding principles regarding community choice energy programs that centered around social equity and encouraging the development of an equitable jobs pipeline. A letter sent to the Clean Energy Alliance on April 18 from the Board of Supervisors asked, among other questions, how the community choice program fit in with their newly adopted guiding principles. “We reviewed the Clean Energy Alliance’s official documents and our adopted policies and found that our JPA agreement and policies are very much
in alignment with those county principles,” Boswell said. Clean Energy Alliance has sent all related documents and answers to other specific questions to the Board of Supervisors and its timeline established to meet certain California Public Utility Commission deadlines. Boswell also says Clean Energy Alliance will need for the Board of Supervisors to make a decision regarding its interest in joining by early August. Staff from the Board of Supervisors has suggested they will be looking at their options before returning to the board in July. The interest from the Clean Energy Alliance board for the county to join them appears high as they also discussed setting up meetings with two supervisors that represent the cities, Terra Lawson-Remer and Jim Desmond, as well as Chairman Nathan Fletcher.
Encinitas City Council repeals housing statute By Bill Slane
ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council, following recommendations from the city’s Planning Commission, has voted to repeal a city ordinance that the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has said was in violation of state law. The ordinance, dealing with housing density in the city, was said to introduce burdensome requirements to developers and is not consistent with state law by the Department of Housing and Community Development. The city was first notified of the issue in a letter sent in February. After attempting to receive more information on the issue without a response from HCD, the city received another letter in March reiterating the concerns of the state department. There was still some sentiment from members of the city council to bring the question before a judge but Mayor Catherine Blakespear was very clear in her view that they would be fighting a losing battle. “In the city of Encinitas, we’re having a conversation about density ruining community character that doesn’t really correspond with the conversation being had at the state level at all,” Blakespear said. Blakespear made her feelings clear about the prospect of being able to convince HCD to allow their housing element to be approved without the ordinance in question being repealed. “I think that really you’re burying your head in the sand if you think that there is any way that we are going to somehow persuade HCD that this is going to be something that they should accept,” Blakespear said. Councilmember Joy Lyndes expressed what many in the public have that the letters sent by HCD have not done much in the way of explaining what specifically it has an issue with in the ordinance. Communications with the city and HCD on this issue have not been strong. “To this day we still have not been able to have any dialogue to explain to us what we did wrong. I feel like we’re in a spiral of not understanding and we risk continuing to not understand until we can build a rapport where we get clarTURN TO HOUSING ON A7

Scripps: Some patient info stolen in ransomware attack By City News Service
REGION — Scripps Health announced June 1 that some patient information was acquired during last month’s ransomware attack, with the investigation ongoing into the full scope of the data breach. In a statement, the San Diego-based healthcare system said an “unauthorized person” gained access to Scripps’ network and while the individual did not access Epic, Scripps’ electronic medical record application, ``health information and personal financial information was acquired through other documents stored on our network.” Scripps said it was working to notify 147,267 people so they can take steps to protect their information, though there’s no indication at present that any data has been used to commit fraud. Scripps Health also said it would be providing complimentary credit mon-
itoring and identity protection support services “for the less than 2.5% of individuals whose Social Security number and/or driver’s license number were involved.” A review is ongoing into the content of the remainder of the documents involved. Scripps described the ensuing investigation as “a time-intensive process that will likely take several months, but we will notify affected individuals and entities as quickly as possible in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements.” Anyone with questions can contact a dedicated call center at 855-535- 1822 on weekdays, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. “Maintaining the confidentiality and security of our patients’ information is something we take very seriously, and we sincerely regret the concern this has caused our patients and community,” Scripps’ statement read.
OCEANSIDE — Oceanside City Council's representative for District 2 has announced his bid for the 49th Congressional District. Councilmember Christopher Rodriguez, a Republican, officially announced his campaign for Congress on May 24. His campaign will likely set him against incumbent Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) and fellow Republican Brian Maryott in 2022, who lost to Levin in the 2020 election. Besides his role as a council member, Rodriguez is also a combat Marine veteran, businessman and father of seven. His campaign describes his life story as “the true American dream.” Rodriguez originally hails from Chicago, where his father was a member of a notorious street gang. His mother fled with her children from their abusive father and eventually remarried his stepfather, who first sparked Rodriguez’s interest in becoming a Marine. Rodriguez became a father early in his teenage years, which he said inspired him to work even harder. After 9/11, he decided to become a Marine. He served two combat tours in Iraq and was injured during his second tour in Fallujah by a rocket-propelled grenade that

hit his platoon. After that, he received a Purple Heart but was unable to return to combat. “The American Dream isn’t handed to anyone,” Rodriguez said in his campaign launch video. “You have to fight for it, no excuses.” According to Rodriguez, his incumbent opponent Levin has lied to his constituents about being a moderate problem-solver in Washington. Instead, Rodriguez claims, Levin is “one of the most reliable votes for Nancy Pelosi and
AOC’s socialism in Congress.” “He wants us to believe he’s bipartisan but all he has done is obey Nancy Pelosi,” Rodriguez states in his campaign announcement. “I’m running for office because I know this district doesn’t want a spineless wimp in Congress.” Rodriguez intends to push back against “bad ideas like The Green New Deal, defunding the police and massive socialist spending policies that have already started an inflationary crisis.”
The district’s next election isn’t until 2022. Rodriguez told KUSI News that he wanted to get started early because of the amount of work and fundraising he has ahead. A few residents have questioned how Rodriguez will be able to continue representing Oceanside throughout his campaign. “We’ve gotten so much done over the past two years and I will continue to fight hard for Oceanside through my congressional campaign,” Rodriguez told The Coast News.

ESCONDIDO — After an officer-involved shooting back in April that resulted in the death of Steven John Olson, a 59-year-old homeless man, the city of Escondido experienced a renewed push for police oversight from community activists. But that won’t be happening any time soon. Escondido Police Chief Ed Varso told The Coast News that there is no future agenda item planned for the Escondido City Council to consider a police oversight committee at this time. Varso added that with a new incoming city manager, it is possible the department and the council will revisit the issue at a later date. The last time the council discussed police oversight was in October of
2020, but the issue was not up for a motion or a vote so the council did not reach a consensus on an approach to take. “You can support law enforcement, support public safety and support transparency,” Councilwoman Consuelo Martinez said at the October meeting. “Creating some type of board… is the right thing to do, it’s the transparent thing to do, it’s the timely thing to do.” The demand for a police oversight committee escalated in Escondido after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota last year, along with a push for stronger de-escalation policies and cuts to the police budget. So far, only one of those demands has been met. In March, the Escondido Po-
lice Department created a standalone de-escalation policy. The policy calls for officers to gather all of the information they can before entering a potentially tense situation. It also says that officers should use tactics to lower the intensity during these encounters. Officers are called to stay calm, listen to the individual in question and use clear and concise language. If necessary, officers can even disengage, or walk away from a situation, as long as the person isn’t a threat to others. This is the first standalone de-escalation policy the department has created. When it comes to the city’s police budget, it has seen a steady increase over the past several years. The city’s budget for the fiscal year 2021/22 includes a $2.7 million increase in the city’s police budget from last year, bringing it to more than $49 million. The recent officer-involved shooting was one of several in the city over the past couple of decades. A review of public records by the Union-Tribune last year revealed that 217 people died at the hands of county-wide law enforcement over the last 20 years, and 12 of them were in Escondido. Nine of those deaths occurred between 2001 and 2011.

Late property tax bills face more penalties July 1 By City News Service

Tri-City program teaches youth to pursue goals By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — A local hospital has partnered with young adults striving to make a positive impact in their community to help them reach their full potential. First founded about a decade ago, the North San Diego County NAACP Youth Leadership Council brings young adults between the ages of 14 and 24 together to give their communities a voice. “They are the voices in the community demonstrating to others that they also have a voice,” said advisor Debbie Matthews. “Those voices reach all across the board, whether it’s about the environment, social injustices, educational needs or activities they want to see in their communities.” Matthews said her students have spoken to legislators, lobbied for bills and have helped those in need. Its members made and distributed masks during the pandemic, and they donate to the San Diego Food Bank. “They’ve met Nancy Pelosi, spoken with Mike Levin and have partnered with other local youth organizations like CleanEarth4Kids and Students Demand Action,” Matthews said. “They have something to say and they want to be heard.” Recently, Tri-City Medical Center began providing financial support to the council, which included a

Density and low-income housing is not generally a very popular issue with broad support in the city but as Blakespear said during council discussions, that doesn’t change what has happened at a state level. “There is so much opposition to housing in this community,” Blakespear said. "But the reality is that
donation of custom-made shirts and jackets for its students. The hospital has also begun providing an education and training program to members that teaches the students to understand how to find their paths to success and opportunities to advance their futures now. Hospital leaders share their own insights to reaching success through the “Strategic Career Planning: A 10-Step Guide to Realizing Your Potential,” which teaches students between the ages of 14 and 19 what it takes to achieve life goals and how to take advantage of the resources available to them. Aaron Byzak, chief external affairs officer for Tri-City Medical Center, designed the program to assist students with setting professional, educational and personal goals while also developing a mentoring plan for individual and professional development. Each of the 10 steps focuses on a specific skill set. Byzak teaches the students how to network. “A lot of times young people don’t know how to make connections,” Byzak said. “They might not know anybody who could help them, so I try to serve in that role.” Additionally, Byzak teaches advocacy training class that prepares students to be leaders of change in their communities. Besides
members of the leadership council, Byzak also teaches classes to formerly incarcerated individuals and homeless people. Tri-City’s support of the youth council is part of its Community Outreach and Support Through Active Leadership (COASTAL) Commitment Initiative, a broad outreach program that supports community improvement projects and has nearly 60 partner organizations. Byzak, who is also board president of the North Coastal Prevention Coalition, first heard about the Youth Leadership Council from alternative board member Rob Howard. “These kids needed investment,” Howard said. “Once you see possibilities you can have dreams.” Howard said the leadership program helps students focus on the goals and ideas that they have in their heads. “It’s a great opportunity for them and the community, where they can pay it forward,” Howard said. Howard, Byzak and the council’s advisor, Matthews, see great promise in the youth council’s membership. “These young people are absolute rock stars,” Byzak said. “I’m blown away every time I talk to them about their diverse interests.” One student wants to pursue two different careers as both a fashion de-
housing is a way that we do provide a vital community. We provide housing at all income levels.

The final vote to repeal the ordinance was 3-1, with Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz the lone vote against and who stood strong in his belief the city shouldn’t move forward without trying to get the question in front of a judge for a ruling. Even though Kranz,
who spoke last during discussions, could see where the vote was heading, he still made his opinion known before casting his vote. “Far from having my head in the sand, I’ve been at this a long time and been around the block quite a few times. And I don’t like ceding my authority to a state bureaucracy,” Kranz said. “In December we adopted this ordinance unanimously. And with a letter from HCD, we’re ready to repeal it. And I think it’s unfortunate that we’re doing that.”
signer and an NFL player. Matthews explained that the program taught students how to seek each one of those careers. “They stayed engaged throughout the whole process and shared what they really wanted to do at this time,” Matthews said. “Things could change, but if does then they now know there are resources and mentorship opportunities.”
REGION — San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister began sending 42,037 reminder notices this week to property owners who did not pay all their 20202021 property taxes. “On July 1, any unpaid bill will go into default, incurring another 1.5% penalty each month,” McAllister said. “That penalty amounts to 18% per year. “I want to save people this hefty fine and encourage them to pay their bills as soon as possible.” Property owners can pay their bills immediately online at sdttc.com. McAllister advised to begin an online payment well before the June 30 midnight deadline to make sure the payment is on time. Property taxes are due in two installments -the first in December and the second in April. Each late installment has already incurred a 10% penalty, plus a $10 fee if the second installment was late. Late taxes total $138 million. The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office mailed 1,482 fewer reminder notices this year compared to last, when $166 million
in property taxes was due before the June 30 default deadline. So far, the TTC has collected 99% of first installments and 97.5% of second installments. “We know most San Diegans take the responsibility to pay their taxes seriously,” McAllister said. “We want to give the small number of those who haven’t paid one more chance.” Increased penalties are not the only incentive for people to pay their taxes. Under California State law, the TTC may sell properties that have been in default for five years.

New restaurant concept with test kitchen opens soon at Pierside North By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — A restaurant that will also serve as a testing kitchen for local chefs and bartenders is set to open downtown by late summer. The Lab Collaborative (TLC) will operate as a full-service restaurant on the ground floor of the Pierside North apartment complex, located just blocks away from the beach on the corner of North Cleveland Street and Mission Avenue. Once completed the restaurant will feature a kitchen surrounded by glass and both indoor and outdoor seating. Behind the restaurant is Jack Everett, who owns Señor Grubby’s and who
has worked in corporate restaurants for more than 15 years. The Lab Collaborative will feature its own upscale, American bistro menu prepared by executive chef Ramiro Guerra, who previously worked for Belching Beaver. Additionally, the restaurant will feature menus prepared by local guest chefs. “On one side you have our static menu and on the other side you have our experimental collaborative menu,” Everett said. Everett explained that this provides an opportunity for local up-and-coming chefs and bartenders to test out their work. The restaurant will switch out
the experimental menus on a quarterly basis. “We’ll invite someone else to come in and share our space and work with us side-by-side,” Everett said. “It could be a young, upand-coming sous chef who would get the chance to present their work.” The restaurant will be the first flagship restaurant of the brand that Everett and his partners plan to grow. The brand could include full-service restaurants, counter-service restaurants and even a food truck, which Everett said the restaurant group recently just purchased. “With The Lab, you have the ability to present different cuisines under
the same branding,” Everett said. “You could do full service and a food truck without cannibalizing each other’s space in a local area.” The restaurant’s partners are also interested in opening other projects in the city, like a fast-casual restaurant or even a distillery. Above all the other coastal cities, Oceanside was the top contender for the restaurant’s new home. Not only does Everett already own another restaurant in town, but he also lives here with his family. On top of that, Oceanside is a growing tourist town with lots of foot traffic and a thriving food scene.
The Lab Collaborative is also just a block away from The Seabird Resort and Mission Pacific Hotel, the two recently opened hotels that make up Oceanside’s new beachfront resort. “That’s definitely going to increase the foot traffic in Oceanside,” Everett said. Adaptability and flexibility matter when it comes to the restaurant industry, according to Everett. According to the restaurant owner, staying flexible and adapting to changes in how restaurants were able to stay open throughout the pandemic, having to almost constantly switch back and forth from dine-in to takeout only.
The Lab Collaborative’s concept revolves around staying flexible. Even its static, American bistro menu offers flexibility because it doesn’t have a defined food style — instead, it’s like a “melting pot” of different food styles, Everett explained. “A restaurant always has to find ways to maintain relevancy,” Everett said. “The Lab Collaborative is always bringing people together to create something new and different.” When it comes to operating a restaurant, Everett wants to create a culture where his employees want to come to work, be successful in their duties and shine for their guests.

Legoland California opens new world, 6 new attractions By City News Service
CARLSBAD — Streamers filled the air, sparklers burst in the sky and entertainers packed the stage as Legoland California Resort opened The Lego Movie World on May 27, based on the films “The Lego Movie” and “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.” Resort President Kurt Stocks and two junior resort ambassadors officially welcomed guests to the new section of the park, which is designed to fully immerse guest into the Lego movie universe and place them onto the streets of Bricksburg. “We are so proud of this land because families aren't just stepping into another brilliant, Lego-filled world, but also into a popular world based on the huge film franchise that kids and parents love,” Stocks said. “The Lego Movie World truly has something for everyone, and we are excited to welcome more guests to experience this new land which takes them from theater to theme park.” The land is the largest addition in the park’s history and features six interactive attractions, including Emmet’s Flying Adventure Ride — on which kids and families hop aboard Emmet's triple-decker flying couch for an adventure. Surrounded by a fulldome virtual screen, guests feel the sensation of flying above memorable lands from the films such as Middle Zealand, Cloud Cuckoo Land, Pirates Cove and the
Sistar System. “We are elated to partner with Legoland California, a leader in kids and family entertainment, to bring The Lego Movie World to the West Coast,” said Peter van Roden, vice president of global themed entertainment for Warner Bros. “This highly themed, colorful land is faithfully inspired by the characters, adventures and landmarks made popular in ‘The Lego Movie’ films, and we are proud to be extending our reach into another family friendly experience.” In addition to Emmet’s Flying Adventure, kids and families can feel the rush of falling from Unikitty’s Disco Drop and experiencing the many personalities of the feline.

Pacific Rim math club students earn prestigious awards 4th graders shine
on state, national, international stage By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Nearly two dozen fourth-grade students took math to a whole other level over the past four months. Students at Pacific Rim Elementary School took part in the school’s first-ever math club, which was spearheaded by parent Ilene Cooper. As a result, the kids formed five teams and competed, won and placed at several state, national and international competitions. On May 28, Cooper organized a celebration at the school for her team and their parents, while handing out medals, ribbons and trophies showcasing the students’ accomplishments. “I started looking into competitions and a lot of them were team events, so I thought I’d start a team,” Cooper said. “The kids were amazing. Math should be fun.” Cooper started the club in January as a way to get her son, Aaron, more active with math. Cooper said her son really wasn’t enjoying math or taking an interest, but he is competitive, so she leveraged those characteristics as a way to

build his math skills. Initially, she expected a handful of students to join. Ultimately, 38 students signed up. However, due to other responsibilities, being on Zoom and other issues, she ended up with 22 students.
The math centered on addition, subtraction, division and multiplication, although one event was so competitive, the students ventured into high school math to determine the top finishers, Ilene Cooper said.

From there, she broke the club into two sections with a group practicing on Mondays and the others on Fridays. Then, she registered the club for a number of competitions. And the kids came to win.
Aaron Cooper, Amal Ali, Caden Faciane, James Gentile and Olivier Weeda won both state and national titles at the virtual Perennial Math competition, while Emi Furukawa, Erick Lim, Maddox Lawrance, Sophia Kim and
Annie Kim were the state runners up. “We would always check it over as a group to make sure we got it right and then Aaron would type it in because he’s our team leader,” Faciane said. “It was a fun experience because I’ve never done math like that before.” At World Maths Day, an online international mathematics competition featuring 10,000 fourth graders from around the globe, Lim placed eighth in the nation and 81st in the world. The team, meanwhile, took third nationally and sixth in the world, while nine students placed in the top 100 nationally and top 10% internationally. Additionally, a number of the students took home national honorable mention awards in several other competitions. As for next year, Ilene Cooper said she plans to follow the kids into fifth grade and continue the club and competitions. “Some problems we struggle on … but when we worked together, we could solve them,” Ali said. Other members of the team include Michael Kamenev, Mikey Lietzow, Lasya Desu, Juliet Metzler, Artyom Sinitsyn, Jaxon Starkey, Brayden Sales, Lauren Zinn, Lily Zinn, Isabella Berke, Avery Chasin, Navdhi Jain.

Three Oceanside sisters killed in head-on crash on Idaho highway By City News Service
OCEANSIDE — Three sisters from Oceanside and a Northern California man were killed last weekend in a head-on crash in Idaho, authorities said. The crash happened about 2:20 p.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 95 south of Marsing, a small town roughly 30 miles west of Boise, according to Idaho State Police. The sisters killed in the crash were 26-year-old Melissa Rojas- Carrasco, 22-year-old Jasmin Rojas-Carrasco and 16-yearold Priscilla Rojas- Carrasco, according to police and a GoFundMe page set up to cover funeral expenses. A fourth passenger in
the vehicle, 22-year-old Juan Pablo Farias of Vacaville, was also killed in the crash. A family friend told 10News the three sisters and Farias, Jasmin’s boyfriend, were driving to meet another family at a cabin in Idaho after winning a cabin stay in a raffle. The youngest sister was a sophomore at Oceanside High School, where her two older sisters had graduated, according to a letter sent to the high school community from Oceanside High School Assistant Principal Kenneth Wright. The assistant principal said a crisis response
team from the school district would be on campus all week to help students, teachers and staff. The sisters and Farias were in a northbound Honda Civic that collided head-on with a south GMC Sierra pickup on a stretch of U.S. 95, police said. The cause of the crash was under investigation. The three occupants of the pickup — a 21-year-old man, a 20-year-old woman and a 16-year-old boy — were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. As of Thursday morning, two GoFundMe pages set up for the Oceanside family had raised a total of $55,430.

els on their home, pay upwards of $200 a year to their utility company to subsidize homeowners with rooftop solar. Severin Borenstein, professor of business administration and public policy at the Haas School of Business and faculty director of the Energy Institute at Cal Berkeley, recently made public comments in agreement with Gonzalez’s analysis regarding the current state of solar. “It has been well documented – and surprises no one – that households with solar are disproportionately wealthy, as well as disproportionately White,” Borenstein wrote in a blog post. “So, when a customer installs solar, their share of the fixed costs are shifted to other ratepayers who are poorer on average. Net energy metering hurts the poor. It’s that simple.” But according to Powers, the biggest draw to households choosing to install solar, which is widely applauded as a way for individuals to fight climate change by reducing their carbon footprint, is the ability to recover their invest-
ment in a relatively short amount of time. AB 1139 would make it much more difficult for homeowners to recover those costs in a timely manner. “What they’re proposing with AB 1139 is to make it a 20-50 year payback because there are going to be these fixed charges,” Powers said. “That’s why we keep saying that these rules as they’re proposed would literally kill the solar industry as we know it.” The solar industry, and Stellar Solar specifically, has been growing in recent years but Powers is concerned about what the passage of AB 1139 could mean to his business and the industry as a whole. “We were really on a very good path for continued stable growth and then this bill seemingly came out of nowhere it seemed to us,” Powers said. Bill Walton, former NBA star and “solar evangelist” for Stellar Solar, recently announced he is teaming up with California Solar Storage Association, solar consumers and environmentalists to actively oppose AB 1139, according to a recent release. “The terrific, upward
and dynamic trajectory of the solar, battery storage and electric vehicle industries has been the realization of a long time dream,” Walton said in a statement. “And now this potential reversal — from the state that leads the nation in solar? This is a travesty. “This is my personal appeal to the California State Assembly, Senate, and Governor Newsom. Don’t be bullied by the utilities. This bill is not about the people, it’s about corporate greed and a profit grab.” Another concern for the solar industry will come even if the bill is ultimately unsuccessful — there will still be fighting with the investor-owned utility companies who have proposed very similar rule changes to the California Public Utilities Commission. “Even though we’re fighting this battle in Sacramento now, we’re going to have to fight the same battle with the Public Utility Commission,” Powers said. “The proposed rules are still awful whether they happen at the commission or the State Assembly.” Representatives for Gonzalez did not respond to questions or interview requests for this story.

REGION — La Jolla Country Day School alumnus Kelsey Plum scored four points to help the U.S. women's 3x3 basketball team qualify for the Tokyo Olympics with a 21-13 victory over Spain in a semifinal of the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament May 30 in Graz, Austria. Plum, a Poway native, had two assists, including on Stephanie Dolson’s basket with 21.2 seconds to play that ended the game. “We’re just really excited,” Plum said. “I love this team and we have a lot of fun.” The U.S. opened the game by outscoring Spain 6-2. Spain cut the deficit to 7-6. The U.S. responded by scoring six unanswered points for a 13-6 lead and led by at least four for the rest of the game. The U.S. defeated Belarus, 21-13, in a quarterfinal earlier Sunday, with Plum scoring a game-high seven points. “I think the biggest overall thing for both games, which is what (coach) Kara (Lawson) has always emphasized, is at the end of the day, it is our pace that helps us win,” Plum said. “We continue to find a way to win, and it was really

cool to see that happen, especially in the Spain game, because it was pretty close, it was back and forth.” Plum was the U.S.’ leading scorer in the tournament, averaging 5.3 points in six games, all victories. France, which defeated Japan, 15-14, in the other semifinal, also qualified for the Olympics, as did Japan, which defeated Spain, 2018, in the third-place game. Plum was initially chosen on Feb. 17, 2020, for the U.S. women’s 3x3 team that was to attempt to qualify for the Olympics the following month in Bengaluru, India. The tournament and the
Olympics were postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Plum tore an Achilles tendon while playing with her WNBA team, the Las Vegas Aces, last June and was sidelined for the rest of the season. “For me, this has been a real journey,” Plum said. “I kind of thought my dreams were over, because of the Achilles. And you know, with COVID and everything that's been postponed, it just kind of made it happen. So, I’m just really grateful for this and trying to enjoy it.” The inaugural 3x3 Olympic basketball competition will be held July 24-28. 3x3 is played with a 12-second shot clock on a half court. Baskets inside the arc and free throws are worth one point and baskets made from outside the arc are worth two points. The winner is the first team to score 21 points or the leading team at the end of the 10-minute game clock. Plum, who led La Jolla County Day to the 2012 CIF Division IV state championship, was the first overall selection in the 2017 WNBA draft by the San Antonio Stars. The team moved to Las Vegas before the start of the 2018 season.

For starters, Padres’ relievers could use some relief sports talk jay paris
elcome back, Padres, and if you’re one of their weary relievers, please, put your feet up for a bit. The Padres christened a seven-game homestand on Thursday, saying “hello” to those business travelers from the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs. It’s the last set of games in which Petco Park’s capacity is limited. With all those open seats, maybe a reliever or two can sit a spell. What’s clear is that the Padres aren’t shy about swinging open the bullpen gate. What isn’t so concrete is if it’s a sustainable strategy. For starters, the Padres’ front-line hurlers need to go deeper in games. Save Yu Darvish and Joe Musgrove, those throwing the first pitch for the Padres are seldom facing batters after the fifth inning. Instead, it’s manager Jayce Tingler wearing out the grass between the dugout and the mound, an arm stretched toward the sky to signal for relief. And those relievers have been

fantastic, a big reason why the Padres are in the threeteam tussle for the National League West lead. But the starting pitching, at some point, has to quit going south. We get it, that the days of complete games and outings that stretch beyond 100 pitches have gone the way of the $5 tickets at Petco. A.J. Preller, the team’s general manager and an Encinitas resident, hasn’t gotten his money’s worth on a prized acquisition. Yep, we’re looking at you Blake Snell, and one must be under a shell not to see that.
Snell came at a steep price, with Preller surrendering talent and quantity to wrestle him from the Tampa Bay Rays. In addition to the personnel currency, the Padres assumed the $39 million left on Snell’s contract through 2023. But the dough isn’t the point. Snell’s lack of length is, as he’s reached the sixth inning in just five of his first 11 starts. His ERA is closer to 6.00 than 5.00 and his shoddy command has contributed to high pitch counts before his games’ halfway points. Entering the week, his 31 walks paced the Pa-
dres, ditto his eight home runs allowed. “This has been one of the roughest patches of my career,” said Snell, a former American League Cy Young Award winner. Snell has company with an up-and-down Chris Paddock and the tag-team combo of Ryan Weathers and Dinelson Lamet. The latter two are restricted because of experience (Weathers) and health (Lamet). So add it all up and the Padres have two starters they can rely on, and we tip our cap to Darvish and Musgrove. One baffles hitters
with an array of 11 pitches and the other one threw the first no-hitter in franchise history. With the season onethird over, the starters have among the top ERAs in baseball. But they don’t toe the rubber long enough for the relievers to catch their breath. When the bullpen phone does ring, it’s the precursor to solid outings. Despite being taxed, the relievers lead the league in ERA, which is good. But they are No. 1 for the most innings pitched, which isn’t so swell.
Del Mar to be at full capacity for summer racing By City News Service
DEL MAR — Del Mar Thoroughbred Club announced plans May 28 to open its 2021 summer race meet with 100% capacity for fans in its seating areas throughout its facility, beginning Friday, July 16. The decision was made in accordance with state and county public health guidelines effective June 15, when most COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted statewide. Del Mar’s 82nd racing season will open in July and
run through Labor Day Monday, Sept. 6. Fans wishing to attend must obtain a seating package in advance of their arrival. Admission tickets and parking passes will be included in the package. The track will put seats on sale online on Friday, June 18, with a pre- sale available on Thursday, June 17 for those who sign up at the Del Mar website — DMTC.com/2021. “We are delighted to be able to welcome our fans back to Del Mar,” said Josh Rubinstein, DMTC presi-
dent and COO. “We appreciate their patience as we have all adapted to the changing circumstances over the last 15 months.” Under current California Department of Public Health guidelines, fans will be required to wear masks when visiting Del Mar, except when eating or drinking in designated areas. Gov. Gavin Newsom is scheduled to issue revised guidance June 15 and track officials will adjust requirements on face coverings based on the new guidelines.
Del Mar will offer seating in its Stretch Run, Clubhouse, Turf Club, Skyrooms, Luxury and Celebrity Suites and its five major restaurants. Total seating at the track is 14,994. Track officials will have more to say about general admission access over the next several weeks. “We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and adjust our plans as the state makes additional progress and updates its recommendations,” Rubinstein said.
SD Loyal earns first win of USL season in home opener By Staff
REGION — Playing in front of home fans for the first time in more than a year, SD Loyal earned its first points of the 2021 USL Championship season with a 2-1 win against visiting Las Vegas Lights FC on May 29 at Torrero Stadium at the University of San Diego. It was the first soccer action at home with fans for SD Loyal (1-4-0, 3 points) since its inaugural match on March 7, 2020. It played a handful of home matches with closed doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Las Vegas (0-4-0) took a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute, but SD Loyal responded with a pair of second-half goals. The first came courte-
sy of Chula Vista native Alejandro Guido, who scored his first goal of the season in the 56th minute. For Guido, it was his third goal in 10 games with SD Loyal since joining the club late last season. Corey Hertzog knocked
in the game-winner in the 87th minute. He buried a shot after a series of shots were blocked in the six-yard box. SD Loyal heads back on the road when it visits Phoenix Rising FC for the second time this season on June 5.

The Padres were recently trending to having their bullpen produce 713 innings this season, which would be nearly 100 more than their relievers had ever thrown. With 108 games to go, the starters have amassed 250.2 innings and the bullpen 237.2 innings. That’s working now, but if the Padres seek the glory that comes with making the postseason, something has to give. Raise a hand if you’re thinking those dependable arms in April and May will be dragging come October. Then again, Preller might work his magic. Maybe he’ll contact the Minnesota Twins and inquire about lefty Taylor Rodgers, if the Twins continue to falter. Or Preller can bank on his own lefty, Drew Pomeranz, and that his balky elbow will stop revolting. Closer Mark Melancon has 19 saves and should be bound for the All-Star Game. Others have been allin, like Emilio Pagan, Craig Stammen, Tim Hill and Austin Adams. The Padres’ family knows this approach is risky, especially with this season increasing from 60 to 162 games. The starters need not tap out so early, otherwise a Padres summer filled with sunshine could possess a cloud or two. Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him @jparis_sports

‘Tree Doctor’ voted Best of North County
Doctor discovers fast fix for dyslexia; treatment centers opening soon nationwide Reading Without Limits, home to Dr. David Bloch’s patent-pending treatment for dyslexia, is expanding nationwide. Dr. Bloch is screening qualified candidates to become owners of Reading Without Limits testing and treatment centers. As licensed providers, they’ll be able to help people who have dyslexia and other reading difficulties using Dr. Bloch’s innovative program. The training and licensing opportunity for his trademark and copyright protected program is open to eye doctors, psychologists, teachers, home school educators and other uniquely qualified individuals. Once approved, licensees will be granted permission to provide his program as a “treatment only center” or a “testing and treatment center.” THE BUSINESS OF ‘READING WITHOUT LIMITS’ Expanding his innovative dyslexia treatment nationwide will bring a faster and more effective cure to people with dyslexia and other reading problems—many of whom are frustrated with slow, expensive traditional treatments. New providers, trained and licensed by Dr. Bloch, will be self-employed and experts in testing and treating dyslexia sufferers. Due to the required medical education, eye doctors can provide testing and treatment. Other providers can only provide treatment and will need to partner with a local eye care provider. DYSLEXIA TREATMENT: PROVIDE FASTER, MORE EFFECTIVE TREATMENT Up to 15% of the population has dyslexia. Up to 30% has some form of reading problem. Popular dyslexia treatments, such as Orton-Gillingham, can cost as much as $21,000 per year and leave students and their parents waiting three years or more for success. Alternatively, the Reading Without Limits program can run a fraction of their cost and provide faster, more effective results. “Students can learn to read proficiently in record time with the right tools. There are better resources available than what’s being promoted to the general public,” said Dr. Bloch. He went on to say, “Parents, students and teachers have been blown away at how well this program works.”
Reading Without Limits is a surprisingly successful dyslexia cure that doesn’t emphasize phonics, sight reading, picture books or verbal cues—fundamental to many treatment programs. Most of Dr. Bloch’s patients need only to know the alphabet and be able to talk to see rapid results from his program. “We’re combining visual, auditory, and cognitive drills to recalibrate how the brain processes information related to reading. Most people suffering from dyslexia have good speaking vocabularies and high intelligence. They just have difficulty reading,” said Dr. Bloch. HOW YOU CAN PROVIDE ‘READING WITHOUT LIMITS’ Dr. Bloch’s groundbreaking program is trademark protected, copyright protected and patent pending. Screened and qualified applicants who pay the licensing fees and complete training with him will be granted exclusive rights and territories. They can offer his innovative solutions to people with dyslexia and other reading problems in their neighborhood. As part of the licensing agreement, providers will also receive marketing support. Prospective providers can apply by contacting Dr. Bloch and submitting a resume and reasons they believe they’re qualified (firstcome first-served). A Reading Without Limits treatment center could offer services at $75 to $175 per hour depending on their location (with a portion going to Dr. Bloch under the licensing agreement). Considering that standard dyslexia treatments run into the tens of thousands of dollars, the financial benefits for a certified provider are clear. TAKE THE NEXT STEP If you want to be in the business of helping people and establish a treatment center, or interested in becoming an investor, visit readingwithoutlimits.com and email email@example.com. If you’re an eye doctor, send an email to express your interest in establishing a treatment center or a combined testing and treatment center. If your child needs reading help, schedule an evaluation by calling Dr. Bloch at (760) 730-3711
Since 1985, Russell Bowman has been delighting residents of San Diego County with his plant and tree expertise. He specializes in garden, tree and irrigation maintenance. So, it’s no wonder Bowman Plant and Tree Care Specialists have been named the San Diego Union-Tribune Community Press’ “Best of North County” voters’ poll for tree and plant care for a 2nd year in a row! He is lovingly referred to as the San Diego “tree doctor extraordinaire” by his clients, Bowman is known for transforming sickly trees and gardens into Disneyesque wonderlands. Using his own proprietary blend of organic biological nutrition, Bowman feeds plants at night — a talent he picked up during his time as a horticulturist at Disneyland. “When you feed plants at night, they have enough time to absorb the nutrition, before it is degraded by the sun’s rays.” He said. “That’s why, when most people are winding down their days, eating dinner, and going to bed, we are out feeding plants and trees.” He’s done more than just care for sick plants and trees, he’s revolutionized both residential and commercial properties by the

use of his organic fertilizer tanks that inject his magical formula through your irrigation systems. This program reduces the households use of water overall by 30%. In a very short time, this program pays back through reduced water bills. “When you give your body proper nutrition, it affects your overall health and boosts your immunity, so you don’t get sick. The same is true for plants and trees.” Bowman feeds complete “nutrition delivery biology” derived from earthworm castings
to replenish the missing healthy soil biology. This works with a client’s current irrigation system so that each time the landscaping is watered, the needed soil biology is replenished. “This is the secret to keeping your property looking like a five-star resort.” His clients have noticed increased property values through enhancements of their landscape appearance. Russell is quick to point out that healthy
plants and trees are also environmentally friendly. A healthy plant will be more efficient at photosynthesizing sunlight into oxygen and the healthy soil/ compost helps bring down uses far less water. He donates his time and expertise for the trees for the Point Loma Association and gardens at the Rock Church in Point Loma, Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, the YMCA, Barnes Tennis Center, Chili’s Restaurants, Stone Brewery in Escondido, and San Diego Botanic Garden. He also served with the San Diego Rose Society in Balboa Park for 12 years. “My calling is to beautify the earth, making trees and plants healthy,” The Master Gardner taught me everything I know. I’ve learned that when you love something, it’s not something you have to do; it’s something you want to do.” To learn more about Bowman and his services, please contact Russell at 858-499-9417. He provides tree and plant nutritional care as well as ongoing routine garden maintenance. Russell Bowman abides by all applicable state laws and requirements and does not perform any services that require a licensed contractor. Business License B2017006153.
Local arborist rescues cats from trees Kibbles probably didn’t plan to get stuck in a tree, but that’s certainly where he ended up one Christmas Eve a few years ago. As Kibbles’ new adopted owners were bringing him home to Oceanside, he escaped from his cage and ran straight up a tall pine tree. Luckily, Joseph Descans came to Kibbles’ rescue. With ropes and climbing gear in tow, Descans climbed up the tall tree to the orange tabby’s rescue. Kibbles was stuck at the end of a thin branch near the top of the tree. Descans, an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborist and professional tree trimmer, attached the rope to the top of the tree and climbed up at a level higher than where Kibbles hung on. Simply climbing the branch would have been unsafe, which is why he had to be attached to the top of the tree by his rope to be able to reach Kibbles. Descans scooped Kibbles into a bag that he then carried down within him inside another backpack. More than six years ago is when Descans started his Cat Rescuers business. “I was already climbing trees, trimming trees, and then somebody called me to see if I could get a cat out of a tree,” he said. The number of cat rescue calls started to grow,

and eventually spiked when residents in Fallbrook called him about an owl stuck in a eucalyptus tree. The owl had got its foot wedged in a fork of the tree’s branches. After Descans freed the owl from the tree, he
took the injured creature to a wildlife rescue in San Diego. After that, that rescue started referring people to Descans about animals stuck in trees. Even the region’s police and fire departments as well as the San Diego Humane Society
refer to Descans for help. When Descans first receives a call about a cat stuck in a tree, he determines the first course of action based on how long the cat has been up there. “If it’s been up there for 20 minutes there’s a good chance it will eventually come down, but once it stays overnight up there it’s time for me to come get it,” he said. Half of his cat rescues end up with the cat going into the bag and being safely transported down the tree, while the other half either end up climbing down on their own or even jumping out of the tree. “A cat will always land on its feet,” Descans said. Descans also tries to avoid hurting the trees he climbs during a cat rescue as well. Lucky for the pine tree, Descans didn’t have to use spikes to climb up its tall trunk. Descans loves to help the cats he saves and the people who care for them. “It’s really fulfilling to rescue the cats because they could die stuck in those trees,” he said. “By getting them out, you’re saving the cat and making people happy.” You can watch Kibbles’ and other cat rescues on the Two cat rescuers Youtube page.

about at the intersection. Deputy Mayor Tony Kranz, a strong supporter of roundabouts, has hopes for the addition of more roundabouts along the corridor as part of traffic improvement projects. “There are traffic mitigation funds that are going to be available for this corridor and it is my hope that we would accelerate the conversation about some of these solutions to include a roundabout at Sheridan Road,” Kranz said.”I think it’s critical that we look at La Costa Avenue in a holistic way traffic-wise.” The corridor has been subject to much interest by the public in recent months with traffic increasing causing more accidents along the roadway. Encinitas resident June Honsberger spoke to the council letting her feelings known about the need for a stoplight at the intersection she frequents as a resident of Leucadia. “I am not in support of a stop sign permanently but as a temporary measure, I think it is a good idea,” Honsberger said. “This intersection is dangerous and it is only going to get worse. We need this stoplight now. We cannot wait for any more study of this intersection. It is dangerous. There are accidents, there are near-accidents almost every day and we cannot get in and out of our neighborhood.” City Traffic Engineer Abe Bandegan told the City Council that if a traffic light was to be chosen to be installed it would take 12-18 months to finish installation due to wait times for the traffic poles themselves. Mayor Catherine Blakespear, while not a fan of stop signs, was also not keen on any of the other scenarios for the intersection at this time. “I just really don’t like (stop signs). But I also don’t feel like these other options are likely,” Blakespear said. “They’re too much right now given the information we don’t know.” The scenario chosen by the council was slightly modified to include the formation of a subcommittee with Deputy Mayor Kranz along with Councilmember Joe Mosca to come back to the council at a later date after finding more information on their options. The scenario included a timeframe to return in six months but Mayor Blakepear and others expressed their hope for another discussion sooner. “I really feel like it could be a decade before we have everything ready to go forward with roundabouts,” Councilmember Kellie Hinze said. “So I just hope that my colleagues do return in six months with a recommendation that won’t delay the traffic signal.” Kranz said he thinks a six-month time frame is a good one in this case. “If it’s going to be a traffic signal, I don’t want to delay the ordering of the poles if there is going to be a waiting list.”

Solana Beach advances designs for Lomas Santa Fe By Bill Slane
SOLANA BEACH — An improvement project that has been in the works since the Fiscal Year 2016 in Solana Beach is in the final stages of designs for changes on the Lomas Santa Fe corridor. The city has received a grant from SANDAG in the amount of $616,050 that originally expected the design of the project to be completed by July of 2020. Since then, the project was given two extensions on the grant deadline and the design is not expected to be completed before January 4, 2022. Construction on the project would begin after
designs are completed. The project extends across the city of Solana Beach from Highway 101 and inland to Highland Drive. The current design will include improvements to bike access, added trails and sidewalks. “We’ve narrowed down the lanes and the center turn lane in many areas to accommodate some of these features but also to help reduce traffic speeds to align more with the posted speed limits,” Dawn Wilson, the project manager from the consulting firm Michael Baker International hired by the city for the project.
“We noticed in many areas along the corridor that speeding has been a concern.” The city says it has had extensive efforts to reach out to the community in Solana Beach to get their input on the changes. Douglas Alden, a Solana Beach resident, expressed his pleasure with the current design improvements. “A great plan has been developed that will put some polish on Lomas Santa Fe Drive, the main East-West corridor in our beautiful seaside town,” Alden said. “I can appreciate all of the hard work required to develop such
a comprehensive and forward-thinking plan. But the fruits of all that labor will be oh so sweet.” The city is still actively seeking funding for the construction costs of the project but there is much optimism that the project could be seen to completion in the future. “This is not a pie in the sky, maybe someday 20 years from now, this could very well be done soon,” Mayor Lesa Heebner said. “Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope we get this funding and see this within the next few years.” The City of Solana Beach submitted an application in September of
2020 for a grant through Cycle Five of Caltrans’ Active Transportation Grant funding but was not awarded funds for construction. According to the city, the California Transportation Commission has recently requested a onetime augmentation of $2 billion from the state’s expected General Fund surplus which would allow the commission to award funds to projects who have been unsuccessful in grant funding for construction. Solana Beach has sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom expressing their support for the proposal from the Transportation Commission.
County, state agree to restructure youth academy By Tigist Layne
CARLSBAD ARTIST Bryan Snyder, who founded the Carlsbad Art Wall, is planning on his next large-scale public mural at Ground Up Café.

Local artist launches mural project Public display to feature local artists, youth By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Public art murals have become a draw for residents and visitors to the bustling Carlsbad Village. Now, artist Bryan Snyder, creator of the famed Carlsbad Art Wall, has sights on a new public project. This one is on the side of the Ground Up Café, 550 Grand Ave., with a “canvas” 15-feet high and 54-wide dubbed the “Alley Art Wall.” His vision is to raise $10,000 to support 10 to 12 artists, all of whom have previously contributed a mural to the Carlsbad Art Wall and includes a 10-foot-by-12-foot space for kids or adults who want to learn how to paint murals. “It’s going to be 10 to 15 segments and it’s going to be angled to be more creative,” Snyder said. “It’s almost like a mural festival, in a way.” As Carlsbad’s public murals have grown and the Village more recognized by artists, Snyder
said he wanted to do something bigger. The popularity of the Carlsbad Art Wall, on the east wall of Señor Grubby’s, 377 Carlsbad Village Dr., led him to the Ground Up Café. About two years ago, Snyder reached out to the owner of the café and installed his popular “Doodle” character on the wall. But the wall is massive, so Snyder thought bigger. He said many people over the years have reached out after connecting with a past artist’s work on the art wall. So, he thought this larger project would be an opportunity to bring them back for a permanent display. The Carlsbad Art Wall has a new artist about every two months. “One thing I hear from the community is they love when someone paints at Grubby’s, but it’s a huge bummer when their favorite mural is painted over, even though it’s exciting to see something new,” Snyder said. “There’s always a group of people, for every mural, that identify and connect with it.” Additionally, he’s also partnered with the Boys
& Girls Club of Carlsbad with the club looking to including the new art project into its programming. “We have ballfields, we have pools, we have skateparks, all these community facilities to allow kids or anyone to grow that hobby or passion,” Snyder explained. “But what about kids who have a passion for mural painting … or art in general?” But now, Snyder is in the midst of raising capital through individual donors (minimum $15 donation) and corporate sponsors. For those who donate a certain amount, their names will be recognized on a plaque on site. Currently, Snyder has raised $7,000 from local businesses and a nonprofit including The Lofts at Carlsbad Village, Status Skateshop, Mas Fina Cantina, The Compass, Señor Grubby’s, Skylar’s Home and Patio and In Memory of Jack Munday. In addition to donors being included in social media and newsletters, Snyder said the donations are tax-deductible since the Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad is also acting as his nonprofit sponsor.
ESCONDIDO — The San Diego County Board of Supervisors recently decided to sign an agreement with the state to keep a boarding school for foster children open through the end of the next school year and to restructure the academy to continue serving the community. Back in March, the state had ordered the county to close San Pasqual Academy in Escondido by Oct. 1 after changes to state law sought to reduce the use of congregate care facilities in favor of home placement. The new agreement with the state allows the academy to stay open until June 2022 if the county agrees to stop sending foster kids there. The school, which has been a residential home for dependents of the Juvenile Court system for 20 years, is the first of its kind in the nation. At their May 18 meeting, the board agreed to the state’s terms and approved a motion to “reimagine and restructure” the academy, directing staff to work with officials, students and alumni to ensure that San Pasqual Academy also serves young people with different needs, to look at ways to serve alumni and explore the possibility of transitional housing Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said during the meeting that a restructure was necessary for San Pasqual Academy to stay open.
Supervisor Jim Desmond originally proposed requesting an extension for the academy but withdrew that after Fletcher put suggested the restructure. The news that the school would be shutting its doors came from the California Department of Social Services in a letter back in March. “Given the overall reduction in the county’s foster care population and the very limited number of appropriate referrals, it appears that continuation of the pilot is no longer viable or prudent,” the letter said. Since the announcement, members of the community have been urging state and county officials to keep the academy open in order to keep servicing foster children. In a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Friends of San Pasqual Academy claimed that the decision to shut down the school is a misnomer as the school “is not a group home and should not be categorized as such.” “It has been granted an exception to that designation over the last 20 years to specifically address the anomaly for the standard classification as it does not fit the model or definition of group homes,” the letter said. It is still unclear what the restructure of the academy will look like, however, the county only has one year left before the academy has to shut its doors indefinitely.

It is hereby given that the City Council will conduct a Public Hearing on Wednesday, the 23rd day of June, 2021, at 6:00 p.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, to discuss the following item of the City of Encinitas: CASE NUMBER: PLCY-004342-2021 (ZA/LCPA – Inclusionary Housing Ordinance and In Lieu Fee); APPLICANT: City of Encinitas; LOCATION: City-wide; PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Public hearing to consider amending Chapter 30.41 Affordable Housing of the Encinitas Municipal Code to change the City’s inclusionary housing regulations to increase the inclusionary housing percentage requirements to better address the need for affordable units for all residential development, in-lieu fee as an alternative method of compliance, and a new affordable housing impact fee for residential care facilities. At its meeting of May 20, 2021, the Encinitas Planning Commission recommended that the City Council approve Ordinance No. 2021-02 (Inclusionary Housing) with modifications to include increasing inclusionary requirement to 25 percent low and 25 percent very-low (total 50 percent) for properties within the R-30 Overlay Zone and apply inclusionary in-lieu fees to additions of 500 square feet or more citywide. ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: The proposed ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) because this is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the CEQA Guidelines since there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly, in that the inclusionary ordinance is related only to the affordability of housing and does not modify the physical characteristics of housing. In the event this Ordinance is found to be subject to CEQA, it is exempt from CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility of a significant effect on the environment, in that it does not modify the physical standards applicable to housing. STAFF CONTACT: Jennifer Gates, Principal Planner; 760-633-2714 or jgates@encinitasca. gov. This project constitutes an amendment to the Local Coastal Program (LCP). If the City approves the amendment, the proposed LCP amendment must be submitted to the California Coastal Commission for review and adoption. The LCP amendment will not become effective until after adoption by the California Coastal Commission. The Notice of Availability opened a six-week public review period from January 29, 2021 through March 12, 2021 that has been completed prior to any final action being taken by the City Council on the LCP amendment request. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, effective March 18, 2020, all City facilities are closed to the public. Hard copies will be mailed upon request. Should City facilities re-open during the public review period, it will also be available for review at the City of Encinitas Development Services Department: Encinitas Civic Center, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024. Copies will also be available at City Hall, Encinitas and Cardiff Libraries, and the Senior and Community Center during normal business hours, once open to the public.

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 844-477-7869, or visit this internet Web site www. stoxposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case T.S.# 85383.

Titanium Valley a crown jewel in world’s fifth-largest economy getting deals done patrick a. howell
ince its beginning, California has been a symbol of preternaturally golden opportunities. In 1848, the California Gold Rush enchanted nearly 300,000 prospectors from around the world — ax picks in calloused hand, dreams haloed on crowns. Before that, it was Native Californians — 70
distinct ethnic groups and chiefdoms, such as the Chumash, Pomo and Salinan tribes, fostering their own economies and the most diverse cultural mosaic in pre-Columbian North America. Now with over 39.5 million residents, California enjoys the world’s largest and most diverse population. California’s economy has a gross state product of $3.2 trillion and is the largest sub-national economy in the world. If it was a nation, California would be the 5th largest economy in the world. That bears repeating: larger than Russia, Brazil or the United Kingdom,

boasts a GDP of nearly a quarter of a billion, enjoys a future job growth index ahead of the national median, income tax double that of America’s, median household income of just over $100K and routinely shows up on lists of America's best or most affluent neighborhoods. In a state that features global power centers as Silicon Valley, the trillion-dollar Hollywood entertainment industry, San Diego’s multi-billion dollar biotech industry, the Central Valley's agricultural industry (the crops and “black gold” cannabis of Bakersfield and Fresno as well as wine orchards of Napa Valley), Orange County’s world-class investment banking region, and a wealth of national leadership from President Ronald Reagan to Vice President Kamala Harris... that is saying something profound about Carlsbad. The Beat’s (The Coast News) extraordinary podcaster Kellie Kyle asked me a question during our interview: "What were the inspiration and big picture for 'Getting Deals Done’?” My reasons for starting “Getting Deals Done” is simple — I enjoy a surreal passion for deal-making, as well as a business acumen curated by decades spent on Wall Street, OC banking and Market Street San Francisco investment banking sectors, some schooling from the University of Hard Knocks, and a tenured entrepreneur with ventures such as the San Diego Investment Conference in my back pocket. Every molecule in my being is attuned to the incredible business environment in a seaside town bordered by crescendoing beaches, rolling hills, lush valleys and the dreaming impresario’s oasis. Carlsbad is eclectic but tethered boasting four core industries: biotechnology (medical devices and life sciences) anchored by Life Technologies, tourism (Legoland, Flower Fields and beach town) and technology (gaming, robotics and information technology). As a matter of fact, in 2013, Google awarded the city of Carlsbad as the digital capital of California with the strongest online e-business community in the state.
Perhaps, however, Carlsbad’s most distinct “micro-macro” is as “Titanium Valley," a center of the golfing universe with Callaway Golf Company, Taylor Made Adidas Golf Company, Titleist and Odyssey Golf. Coupled with Carlsbad’s 56 golf courses including my favorites at The Crossing, Aviara Golf Club and Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, Carlsbad is tailor-made (pun intended) for the international and aspirational business fluent. Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall recognizes Carlsbad’s bounty, reflecting that “since the mid-1980s, the city has been known for its thoughtful vision which is reflected in the growth management plan.” Astute conglomerates have cosigned with over 25 international brands as Coco’s Bakery Restaurant, Jenny Craig, Rubio's Restaurant and Viasat Satellite Communications headquartered in coastal Carlsbad. “Now, 25 years later, we need to once again take the time to create our vision for Carlsbad; we need to create a plan that will guide us to 2050,” Hall continued. “Our goal must be to involve residents and small businesses in developing a plan that ensures the next generation can continue to enjoy the quality of life that Carlsbad is known for.” With the international pandemic increasingly under control and the Roaring Twenties come full circle in the 21st century, Carlsbad is poised for growth. Or, as Chris Kydd, publisher of The Coast News, noted in our initial conversation at Encinitas' Everest Himalayan restaurant while vibing our vision for the region: “Patrick, there is gold in these hills and beach towns," Kydd said. "There are pockets of pure gold everywhere.” It’s not that hard to fathom. Puissantly breathe the ocean seaside air. Smell that? Carlsbad’s golden. Patrick A. Howell is an award-winning financier, tenured entrepreneur and author of “Dispatches from the Vanguard.” He lives in Carlsbad and is his son SharkHeart’s No. 1 fan.
Charity brings transportation to Africa By Staff
ENCINITAS — California nonprofit Do Something Now! donated 30 bicycles to St. John, a community health service in Cape Town, South Africa in April. The 30 bicycles were made possible by a matching grant with the Tour de France Foundation in conjunction with Qhubeka, a South African NGO. The bicycles were uniquely developed by the World Bicycle Relief who designed the bikes to match the terrain where the bikes would be used. With these bicycles, health care work-
ers will be able to visit up to four times the number of patients a day having bicycles rather than walking. Typically, the health care workers see patients who suffer from HIV, COVID-19 and other health related issues. The Do Something Now organization delivered the first bicycles in 2009 to students on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. Since then, they have made multiple donations to orphanages, various schools in remote areas and “Treepreneurs” (a collaboration with Qhubeka and Coca-Cola).

Vista shuts down local food pantry
small talk jean gillette
By Anneliese Esparza
VISTA — A neighborhood food pantry is being shut down by the City of Vista for not adhering to a city zoning ordinance. Residents Mark and Jannah Loigman have been operating Angel’s Food Pantry and Community Cupboard out of their home’s driveway since March 2020, when the pandemic started. In addition to giving out shelf-stable food items, the Loigmans’ pantry also provided toys and books to families in need. All items were acquired through donations and were given to recipients free of charge. According to Assistant City Manager Amanda Lee, the city’s code enforcement department surveyed the property after receiving a complaint. It then issued a notice of violation for accumulating items in the front yard and “operating a distribution hub in a residential zone,” TURN TO FOOD PANTRY ON B4

’ve been feeling rather hip this week. I painted my toenails gray-blue. As usual, I am grabbing the coattails of this particular fashion trend, but I’m still pretty pleased with myself. It took me this long to not wince when I saw finger- and toenails in colors other than the traditional reds and pinks, but here I am, with gray-blue toes. I blame my father, whose voice I could hear even as I applied this off-color color. “It looks like you’ve been dead for a week,” he would have joked. It’s tough to shake off those things parents leave you with. Hence, I am no trendsetter. I’m just a little sorry I don’t paint my fingernails anymore. It was always fun picking out new colors, but ever since motherhood arrived, I beat up my fingernails way too much to sustain a decent manicure. I only worked up the enthusiasm for some of those wicked fake nails to look presentable for my son’s formal Philadelphia wedding. My daughter’s SoCal backyard nuptials required no such fuss. I do, however, insist on painting my toenails once sandal season rolls in. My go-to summer color is fire-engine red, which just screams summertime to me. But I am easing into naked toe season with this kind-of gray, kind-of-pastel-blue, kind-of-pale-green color I spotted last week. It made me smile. And yes, I usually do my own pedicure, because I am too lazy to schedule such things. I wait until the mood strikes me, and besides, it makes me feel a bit like a teenager again. I’m not sure I will live

Beehive destruction raises concerns By Grant Kessler
‘SWAN LAKE’ IN ENCINITAS
ENCINITAS — The Encinitas Ranch Homeowners Association exterminated a beehive earlier this month despite local and national concerns regarding the population decline of bees. After a concerned citizen noticed a beehive housed in an electrical valve box near Paseo De Las Flores Street at the Encinitas Ranch, the hive was exterminated within the following days. Stephanie Wilson, who first observed the hive while in the area, contacted Dick Stern, president of the Encinitas Ranch HOA, with the intention of saving the bees via live removal from the Encinitas Bee Company. After Wilson offered to pay for the live removal herself or create a fundraiser, Stern promised in an email that the bees would be safely removed to a new location. “They have resources to do live bee removals or

THE QUIET CREEK INN sits on seven forested acres that run along Strawberry Creek in IT’S A MODERATELY tough hike up the 2.5-mile Devil’s Slide Trail in Humber Park to Saddle Idyllwild. The property offers 10 duplex cabins, all with outside entrances and some with Junction, where it crosses the Pacific Crest Trail. Views like this — of Suicide Rock and the decks overlooking the creek. Photo by E’Louise Ondash landscape beyond — are the reward. Photo by Jerry Ondash
After rough stretch, Idyllwild eager to welcome visitors hit the road e’louise ondash
ourists who want to get away from the madness of Southern California’s urban areas have been frequenting the San Jacinto Mountains town of Idyllwild since the invention of the automobile in
the early 1900s. And yet … “We call Idyllwild the best-kept, mountain-top secret of California,” says Nathan DePetris, co-owner of both the Quiet Creek Inn, nestled on the slopes of Strawberry Creek, and the nearby Strawberry Creek
“It’s amazing how we can be in the desert where we do all our business and mention Idyllwild and people will say, ‘Where’s that?’” That “best-kept secret” can be both an asset and a handicap; it means maintaining a balance between preserving the ambiance of a quiet retreat and getting the word out so more visitors come. It was this time a year ago that I wrote a feature about Idyllwild (population 2,510) and its tribulations of the previous three years. Residents’ patience was first tested in July 2018 when the Cranston Fire burned right up to the edge of town and caused the evacuation of 7,000 people. Valentine’s Day of 2019 brought a deluge — 8 inches of rain in two days — that caused mudslides and road closures. This decimated business from Los Angeles visitors. And finally, in 2020 and the early part of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic closed restaurants, shops and nearly all lodging.

SPRING IS AN IDEAL time to visit Idyllwild because the flowering trees are at their best. You’ll find these blooms on the grounds at the Quiet Creek Inn. Photo by E’Louise Ondash
“COVID is something we are all going to remember,” says Marc Kassouf, the other co-owner of the inns, “but we want to look past the doom and gloom and be optimistic. I hope we can grow as a people. I know eventually things will shift.” And so that brings us to the present and our recent visit to Idyllwild. Our Carlsbad friends, Wanda and Jerry, suggested a few weeks ago that perhaps we should give Devil’s Slide Trail in Idyllwild’s Humber Park another go. We conquered it three years ago, just before the Cranston Fire. It’s a moderately steep, 2.5-mile trail that starts at 6,400 feet and levels out at 8,100 feet at Saddle Junction. To prepare for the hike, my husband and I trained for several weeks on the hills in Carlsbad’s Calavera Nature Preserve and in Vista’s Buena Vista Park. We arrived in Idyllwild the night before our Devil’s Slide hike, checked into the Quiet Creek Inn, then enjoyed an excellent dinner at Café Aroma, which has generous patio seating and tasty gluten-free options. The next morning, we hit the trailhead at 9 a.m. Earlier might have been better, but luckily, the trail was mostly shrouded in shade all the way to the top. There was more sun on the way down, but, heck, by then we were going down,
We had plans to head out again for dinner, but our seats in the shade of the towering pines and the flowering trees on the inn’s grounds seemed to have a hold on us. Fortunately, we all had enough leftovers from the previous night’s dinner to re-warm in the provided microwaves, and there was that bag of M&M Peanuts that needed tackling. Visitors with more energy can take advantage of Idyllwild restaurants, and/ or a stroll through the laidback village to shop and browse. Kassouf says that visitors are starting to arrive. “We are all going through difficult times together. We see a lot of frayed nerves. Some people come up here to work. There is a pent-up demand (for places like Idyllwild) … because people are trying to get away from that claustrophobic feeling they had when there wasn’t even access to parks.” The town of Idyllwild and the inns and motels, as of this writing, adhere to the state’s mask requirements and the rules of capacity. “When you do come to Idyllwild,” Kassouf adds, “bring an open mind and relaxed attitude and patience.” For more photos and commentary, visit www. facebook.com /elouise.ondash.

said, “Succulents are beautiful, sculptural, fit in nearly every style garden and are extremely waterwise. “And, while beautiful on their own, succulents are even more striking when paired with non-succulent plants.” She adds, “Together, they offer color, texture, height, and contrast: layers of broad fleshy leaves against feathery leaves, strappy leaves, purple leaves, chartreuse leaves, and more.” Sterman lives in Encinitas, where she founded the Encinitas Garden Festival & Tour, which she ran for
more than a decade. She also founded Grab & Grow Gardens, a local effort to stem regional food insecurity with vegetable garden starter kits distributed by hunger relief organizations. She was a board member of the Garden Writer’s Association and a founding board member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, San Diego District. She also is host, co-producer, and co-writer of A Growing Passion, a public television show that connects plants, people, and the planet.

What I’ve learned from the pandemic
DURING THE PEAK of COVID, beach campers and birds shared space. Photo by Chris Ahrens
water spot chris ahrens
tuck in traffic, I glance at the California Highway sign ironically boasting, “Keeping San Diego moving.” The notice was an anticipated response to the widening of the freeway (again), a project estimated to take several years, or just enough time before we have to widen the road again. Just when the pow-
ers that be announced we were about to move into a green new future, some bureaucrats came along and poured more cement onto the problem. It’s a simple equation — the highway gets wider, and living space for humans and wildlife gets smaller. Like some of you who will admit it, I rode on a non-polluting monorail at Disneyland back in 1958! Monorails were supposed to be the future and I have never received a reasonable response as to why such an efficient, quiet, clean mode of transportation does not now run directly down I-5 and El Camino Real from San Diego to Eureka. Could it be that the ghost of those entities who
bought and buried the largest mass transit system in the world, the Pacific Electric Railway (naughty, naughty Standard Oil and Firestone Tires) are still at work to keep us hooked on fossil fuels. Not that I am anti-transportation or automobiles. I love those big, loud, art deco masterpieces whose peak occurred in the early ’60s when a Cadillac’s wingspan could block traffic for miles. The new cars are more practical, less stylish, and, for the most part, boring, and while they reduce carbon, they require cement or asphalt to go anywhere. And, I hate to break it to you, but your Prius, for all the good it may do, will
never be a classic. Sorry, I think I just took a long left turn from the main point of this article. Okay, I’m back and will now tie this story into its title. It’s been over a year since El Camino Real went silent and the only sounds to be heard from my house, which is a few hundred yards away, were those of songbirds and crickets who had moved back into the neighborhood. The beaches were no different with more seabirds on the beach than even the oldest of old-timers could ever remember. The golf course next door became a luxury condominium inhabited by bullfrogs, turtles and egrets that reclaimed the land they had once dominated. Driving to downtown San Diego on Sunday had not been this enjoyable since the early ’70s “gas crisis” kept the majority of the population at home on the Lord’s Day. Of course I am glad that we are making progress against the dreaded C-19 and that small businesses are again open. Like most of you, I am no fan of particle masks or distancing from loved ones. Still, wouldn’t it be nice if all our communal suffering were good for something? If we took a day or two off from driving and running back and forth and gave nature a break and returned a percentage of what we have stolen over the past few centuries? Why not give it a try? We have nothing to lose but the dull hum spewing from our mighty mind machines.

In general terms, a funeral is a gathering of family and friends after the death of a loved one that allows them the opportunity to mourn, support each other & pay tribute to the life of the deceased. For thousands of years, funerals have allowed survivors to express their feelings about the death of someone they love. The rituals provide comfort when things seem chaotic and out of control. For many, a visitation followed by a funeral or memorial service is the first step in the grieving process. It is a time when friends, family and other guests can come together to grieve openly and to support one another in a community environment. It is possible to have a full funeral service even for those choosing cremation. The most important part is in the “coming together” with others to share memories and receive comfort from one another.

FOOD PANTRY CONTINUED FROM B1
Lee said in an email to The Coast News. Jannah Loigman, who also goes by the nickname Angel, said that the pantry has been a crucial resource to families in need during the pandemic. “A lot of people were having a hard time having food, so we decided we would put a couple of cans of food out there, or pasta and sauce, that kind of thing, just to help,” Jannah Loigman said. "The neighbors started adding to it, and it just kind of grew into... a pretty helpful operation for folks in our community. “We had created a place where people could come in with dignity ... these are people that, because of COVID, lost their jobs ... people who had never even asked for food, and were embarrassed to do it." Jannah Loigman herself experienced food insecurity in the past as a young single mother, which inspired her to help others once she had the resources to. “I know what it’s like to struggle. CROP We’re not wealthy people, .93 but my husband is back at work now, and it .93 was my time to give back,” 4.17 she said. 4.28 She has been operating the food pantry seven days a week, nine hours a day or more and has formed a personal connection with many of the people who visited the pantry. “I really put my heart and soul into creating a space of warmth: feeding more than just people’s bodies, but actually becoming friends and listening to

long enough to be a fan of the multi-color hair that’s hot these days. It looks cute on the kids, because everything looks cute on kids, but it hasn’t won my heart. I do understand the reasons behind it, though. Every woman alive knows what getting bored with your hair is like. In my next life, I’m shooting for a thick head of hair I can braid every which way. I love the intricate braiding styles I see
their stories and knowing their children,” Jannah Loigman said. “It just became a beautiful community.” At the Vista City Council’s May 25 meeting, several residents voiced their opinion that the pantry should remain open. One was Dan O’Donnell, a businessman and vice president of the Democratic Club of Vista. “When people go (to the pantry), they find friendship," O'Donnell told the council. "They find mental health resources. They find individuals who share a common bond with them and know that they struggle together and know there is hope at the end of the tunnel." Elissa Yassine, a Vista resident who has used the pantry herself, said that an advantage of Angel’s Food Pantry & Community Cupboard over a larger food bank is that you can take what you need instead of getting an entire box of food that recipients might not be able to eat, either because it is too much food or because they have dietary restrictions. “By utilizing the items that Angel’s Food Pantry & Community Cupboard has available to us, we are not only saving the county money, we are also preventing unnecessary food waste,” Yassine said. Yassine has also started a petition to keep the food pantry open, which has been signed by nearly 900 people. The Loigmans intend to comply with the city, but they are hopeful that their pantry can somehow remain open to help those in need. now, but I have never had enough hair on my head to create a respectable braid. Moreover, I come from a long line of microcephalics … that is, people with tiny heads. When my hair is clinging to my scalp, I am not a candidate for a swimsuit edition. I believe the appropriate expression is “drowned rat.” But my toes are cool. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer creeping up on the latest fashions. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

of the Encinitas Bee Company. Stern did not respond to a request for comment. While it’s unclear exactly how many bees were killed in this incident, the average hive consists of 30,000 bees. Similar to the San Diego Padres receiving widespread criticism in 2019 for exterminating a beehive during a baseball game, Wilson is simply advocating for more community awareness. “My hope is that the greater community will put pressure on them to change their policies and not just the policies there but elsewhere in our community,” said Wilson. “It’s really surprising to me that with so much awareness about the issue that it’s not thought of.” Wilson’s concerns stem from the alarming decline of bee populations in past decades. From 1947 to 2016, U.S. Natural Agriculture Statistics recorded a 60% reduction in honey bee hives. According to the same source, the number of bee colonies per hectare has witnessed a 90% decrease since 1962. As confirmed by the USDA, pollinators, such as bees, are responsible for one in every three bites of food we take and contribute more than $15 billion dollars to the US economy every year. Local beekeepers argue that HOAs have exacerbated the problem by opting to exterminate rather than perform live removals of the hives. “A lot of these HOAs have it written in their clause that you are required twice a year to have an exterminator come to your property and poison like every living thing,” said McDonald. “In a nutshell, it’s the chemicals.

Top 10 beer happy places for 2021 cheers! north county
he porch is where I do my most relaxed beer drinking. It is where my beer always tastes the best. It is a Beer Happy Place. Beer is the beverage of the people. It has the power to transform minds and situations and build economies. Beer also seems to be connected to spots on the Earth that make whatever style or brand you’re drinking taste better, smoother, more flavorful. A little over a year ago, I compiled a list of Beer Happy Places. The top 10 places where drinking a beer will cause an irrepressible sigh of satisfaction to be released into the world. These Beer Happy Spots are where drinking a beer is more than drinking a beer. The flavors are enhanced. The experience is heightened. The emphasis is on the place, not the situation. Today I’m revisiting, revising and improving that curated top 10 list. For posterity, I’ll put last year’s ranking at the end of each spot. 1. Around a campfire: Campfires moved up to take the No. 1 spot this year. Campfires are magical places where the line between reality and shadow come together. At camp or in the

backyard, a campfire calls for a beer while the stars begin to pop out between the treetops. (Last year’s rank: 2). 2. Overlooking the ocean, lake or river: A large portion of beer is water, and when you take a moment to appreciate the places from whence it came, you’ll find your beer tastes better. Ex-

pect some bonus appreciation in your mouth if you’re also watching a sunset. (Last year’s rank: 5). 3. On top of a mountain: Either after hiking up it, or getting ready for your last run down to the ski lodge. Look out at the range and enjoy. That moment is tailor-made for an IPA like Eppig’s Wake Up and Slay. (Last year’s rank: 6). 4. On the porch: It’s comfortable. It’s home. It is where we spent the better part of 2020, and despite our new vaccine-enabled freedom to enjoy more of the world, my relationship with the porch is stronger than ever. I appreciate the consistency of sitting down in my favorite chair, hearing the same sounds, knowing
where the sun will be, and when the breeze is likely to kick up. The porch is your friend that always shows up. Honorable mention: the couch. (Last year’s rank: 8). 5. On a boat: Pull up on a sandbar in a pontoon, cruise down the river in a kayak or just float out in the middle. The type of boat matters. Canoes, kayaks, pontoons and sailboats will inspire your taste buds more than a speedboat or cruise ship. Boat beers should be cold and refreshing like Societe Light Beer. (Last year’s rank: 7). 6. In the garage or workshop: These are places where work gets done, where cars get worked on and power tools are stored.
Cards get played. Stories get told, and beers get drunk. You’re home, but you’re also out. According to my father, the best garage to have a beer in is his neighbor’s because “they have a beer refrigerator, and I don’t!” (Last year’s rank: 3). 7. At the stadium: Some have been craving the experience during the pandemic, but there are also those of us who aren’t ready yet. A beer will still likely taste better if you’re tailgating in the parking lot or cheering en masse for your favorite team. Win or lose, that is going to be a good beer, but this year it comes with enough anxiety that it has dropped down on this list. (Last year’s rank: 4). 8. On the roof: There is something cool about being on the roof. On the roof all things are possible. It is a place of big ideas and big flavors. Due to the safety concerns of drinking at great heights, stick with a lower ABV pilsner or wheat ale. I’m still partial to Oceanside’s Bagby Sweet Ride Pilsner (now in cans!). Why did the roof drop so far? I’d counter with why was it so high in the first place? Yes, I know I compiled the list, but do you remember what you were thinking a year ago? (Last year’s rank: 1). 9. In the shower: A beverage in the shower implies that you are getting ready for something—a night out or just another beer. The anticipation is building and with it your beer drinking enjoyment. (Last year’s rank: 9). 10. At the park: The smell of a grill. The whizz of a frisbee. A nap under some lazy clouds and the potential risk of getting caught (it is illegal to drink alcohol in most local parks) makes the park a classic beer hapTURN TO CHEERS! ON B9

Agave Birrieria in Leucadia
am going to admit up front that until visiting the new Ways Chevron gas station and convenience mart and the adjoining Agave Birrieria on the corner of Orpheus and Leucadia Boulevard, I had never experienced Birria. As far as the gas station /convenience mart goes, it sure looks great and has a nice, easy-to-navigate layout, but besides some fancier-looking pre-packaged meals to go and local products like Wipeout Coffee, it was a little underwhelming. I was expecting something dramatically different going on inside. Agave on the other hand was new and mysterious to me, I mean it’s not often I get turned on to something completely new from a cuisine where I thought I had tried it all. First off a quick note on attaching Mexican restaurants to a gas station. It’s freaking brilliant and I’m surprised it’s not done more. You may remember my story about Chris Van Alyea, owner of Solterra Winery in Leucadia and how his dad did the same thing with several gas stations and now has 16 "Aztec Grills" in Chevron gas stations in northern California and is doing very well with them. It’s quick, car-friendly food and well, a much better option in my opinion than a KFC, Subway combo. Anyway, I popped into Agave recently, very hungry after a post-spin class at the Ecke YMCA and really did not have a clue. I ordered a Birria Burrito, walked it out to my truck, and discovered a cup full of broth in the bag. I assumed it was for dipping the burrito in so that’s what I did and oh my, it was a new taste sensation unlike any other and I just kept devouring it right there in the parking lot. I needed to know more! A quick search when I got home pulled up a very recent New York Times column from February 21 titled “The Birria Boom is Complicated but Simply Delicious”. Birria has a long history in Mexico and any TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON B9

US city where there is a sizable Mexican population, but there is a full-on birria foodie craze happening in Los Angeles and New York and as culinary trends go, it is starting to trickle down into San Diego, which means I’ll probably start hearing about it in Detroit in about a year, ha! Let’s start with a brief history as we could easily take up the rest of this column with the variations on its history and preparations. Most accounts have it originating from the state of Jalisco. It’s a meat stew traditionally made from goat meat, but lamb has been mentioned and most joints like Agave are using beef to appease the demographics they feed. It's also mentioned as a dish served at celebratory occasions, but also as a go-to for a hangover so go figure. Preparation is also all over the map, but the dish is often served with corn tortillas, onion, cilantro and lime. The meat is marinated in an adobo primarily consisting of vinegar, dried chiles, a herb mix that can include cinnamon, cloves, cumin and oregano, then slow-cooked in its own broth. To be blunt, the dish is all over the map, but I can say with certainty that the version at Agave is amazing. It comes served in burrito, taco, quesadilla form and over fries as well. I’ve had the burrito and taco varieties and loved them both. There is more on the
menu, including all the standard carne asada, pastor and polllo asado, but also more exotic offerings like Tripa and Cabeza tacos which would be made from small intestines and cows head respectively. Those are next on my list. I did try a breakfast burrito and was quite happy with that as well. Agave is owned by Juan Pablo who also owns Kotija Jr. right down the hill on Leucadia Boulevard and Coast Highway 101. Beyond that, I was not able to get much more information on the background or inspiration for Agave. I was excited to learn that they do offer catering and am putting them at the top of the list for my first outdoor social gathering I’m hosting in the near future. Other than that, I’m just quite excited to have a new dish to add to my Mexican food rotation. Discovering something new is always exciting. Find them at 865 Orpheus, Encinitas or 760452-6228.

he group of wines shown above represent the legacy cabernets personally selected by Austin Hope, a man who has spent the better part of two decades growing grapes and making memorable wine in Paso Robles. This “legacy tasting,” welcome to all who visit, is the best representation of Austin Hope and Treana wines. From left to right, say hello to the Austin Hope Paso Robles Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 ($65), displaying a richness that has brought reward to the winery from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, which recently rated this wine as No. 7 in its list of the Top 100 Wines in the world for 2020. Next up, the Treana 2019 ($32) was created as a cabernet to honor the three men who helped influence Hope’s path: Austin’s father, Chuck Hope, and his Uncle Paul, who instilled in him life lessons of perseverance and determination, while famous Napa Valley winemaker Chuck Wagner taught him the greatness of crafting world-class cabernet sauvignon.

The Liberty School 2018 ($16) is a fundamental cabernet, a versatile wine with a deep crimson color and a wine with great value. Finally, Troublemaker (NV $20) shows a richness in color and texture with a scent of black pepper that produces a bold flavor from the dark fruit and a signature splash of blackberry cobbler, finishing with smooth, silky tannins. Meanwhile the Paso Robles Wine Association, at its latest annual Wine Festival, held a virtual auction
and called for exciting and attractive packages from its winery members. True to form, Austin Hope provided a package that included two magnum bottles of his award-winning signature cabernets with his signature on the wooden box and bottles. The winning bid was nearly three times the market value. Congratulations to the association for making such a smart choice for a bidding package. Learn more at austinhope.com.

QUESTION jano’s garden jano nightingale
s a child growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, I was always amazed in August and September when the monarch butterflies came through our tiny town of Cedar Grove. We spent the summers at a small cottage, and on our morning beach walks we would try to rescue some of the hundreds of orange and black butterflies that had just completed the 200-mile journey across the choppy waters of the lake. Little did I know then, that these migratory monarchs had actually flown all the way from Northeastern Canada, and our little town was just a stop on their long journey to Mexico. Now that I live in Southern California, I am encountering this wonderful insect once again, and have found many adult females laying their eggs on milkweed in the Carlsbad area. In a few weeks, greenstriped caterpillars emerge
and in another few weeks, all of my gardening friends and I have noticed lots of monarchs flying around North County. But, after doing research with the Xerces Society, some disarming and sometimes contradictory facts have emerged. The West Coast monarch does not migrate, but is known as the “resident monarch.” “The growing body of research has found that resident monarch populations using year-round milkweed have a higher rate of the disease OE (Ophryocystis elektroscirrha). For this reason, Xerces recommends an approach guided by the precautionary principle: plant native milkweed species in their natural ranges to help monarchs. In general, native milkweed species in their natural ranges die back once per year, thus breaking the cycle of disease, whereas the non-native milkweed species that grow year-round serve as constant reservoirs of disease.” (www.XercesSociety. org, March 2021). Since I consider part of my job as a Master Gardener and writer is to keep both backyard and professional gardeners abreast of the latest updates horticulture, I researched the local San Diego Master Garden-

er website. (www.mastergardenersd.org) “Nonnative milkweed was first introduced into the United States from South and Central America in the last century. Because it doesn’t go dormant in the winter like native milkweed, it has upended the historical relationship between monarchs and native milkweed. When native milkweed is dormant, there are few monarchs in San Diego during the winter, other than some over-wintering butterflies along the coast. “However, there is a
compromise if you have nonnative milkweed in your garden. Cut it back and keep it at 6 inches tall over the winter to mimic native milkweed’s dormancy. Remove all plant debris to get rid of any OE spores.” (Judy Wolinsky, San Diego Master Gardeners). Many of the small, local nurseries are now selling native milkweed grown at Moosa Creek Farms, in San Marcos. Their high quality varieties include narrow leaf milkweed, California milkweed and desert milkweed. I recommend the fol-
The nectar plant choices to attract adult monarchs are butterfly bush, cosmos, lantana and native sages, pentas, Mexican Sunflower, Gaillardia and delphinium. My advice to all novice gardeners is to make lists and take them with you when you go to a garden centers. A local exhibit and nursery can be found at Butterfly Farms in Encinitas. Their plant-filled greenhouse is filled with a wide variety of butterflies and well stocked with the varieties that the butterflies enjoy calling their home. The well-trained staff is happy to answer questions, and customers quickly fill up the wagons provided with recommended variety of perennials and annuals. I highly recommend purchasing perennials since they will multiply and return the following year. The question of “native or non-native milkweed,” will continue to be researched by both the Xerces Society and the Master Gardener Program, and we will keep you abreast of all the latest information.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a better perspective on what you’ve done and what still needs to be done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff ‘n’ stuff. The clues are all there, waiting for you to find them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work themselves out at their own pace. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Trying to uncover a colleague’s secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity in order to avoid raising resentment in the workplace.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in his or her way. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Uncertainty about who is right and who isn’t might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what you’re being asked to decide. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow.
