Cyclist, 77, badly injured in hit-run

News

CARLSBAD — A hitand-run collision in Carlsbad eft a bicyclist badly hurt March 24 and a drunken-driving suspect under arrest, authorities reported.

The victim, a 77-yearold man, was riding in the 6100 block of Aviara Parkway when a car hit him from behind shortly before 2 p.m., according to the Carlsbad Police Department.

Following the crash the motorist continued driving and left the area.

Paramedics took the bicyclist to a hospital for treatment of serious, potentially life-threatening injuries, CPD Traffic Lt. Alonso DeVelasco said.

When contacted by the officers, the occupant of the car, later identified as 34-year-old Lawrence Perez of Carlsbad, “displayed objective symptoms of alcohol intoxication and was arrested,” DeVelasco said.

Perez was expected to be booked into county jail in Vista on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run.

TWIN AMUR LEOPARDS BORN

This week,

The

city has declared a local state of emergency in response to flooding and damages due to heavy rainfall for the past two weeks.

The City Council unanimously approved declaring a local emergency during a special meeting on March 22.

In doing so, the city could receive federal and state funding to help recover any costs from repairing city infrastructure damaged by this month’s storms, which have brought historic rainfall to the area.

“We have had an extraordinary amount of rain lately, and that rain did cause some significant damage to various areas of the city,” said City Manager Jonathan Borrego at the special meeting. “Tonight’s actions, if approved, would allow us to seek some additional, external funding at both the state and federal levels to help us recoup some of those costs.”

The excessive rain this year has already caused the La Salina Wastewater Treatment Plant to overflow; a hillside slip on Sky Haven Lane that damaged several homes in the Green Valley Mobile Home Park in Vista; sinkhole at the Oceanside Fire training

Residents oppose industrial facility near Oceanside airport

Traffic congestion, info gaps driving local resistance

— A growing number of concerned residents are voicing their opposition to a proposed industrial facility known as the Eddy Jones Industrial Project near the Oceanside airport.

The Eddie Jones Warehouse, Manufacturing and Distribution Facility project would demolish a vacant industrial building to construct a 568,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility on a 31.2-acre plot at 250 Eddie Jones Way.

The proposed facility, located between Alex and Benet roads and just north of the Oceanside Municipal Airport, would include the

installation of 590 parking spaces for employee and visitor parking, 60 truck trailer stalls and a total of 114 truck terminals at loading bays on the north and south sides of the building.

The Alex Road access point would be limited to passenger vehicles, while heavy truck traffic would go through Benet Road. According to local residents, the project will

Trial date set in Callan lawsuit

Parent of child claims negligence in sex abuse case

SAN MARCOS — A trial date has been set for next year in a parent’s civil lawsuit against Callan Swim School in San Marcos alleging that school officials’ negligence led her son to be sexually abused by a former instructor in 2021.

The child, referred to as M.G., was 6 years old when he was allegedly abused by then-instructor Nicholas Piazza during a swimming lesson at Callan in July

2021. The boy’s parent stated in the civil complaint, filed in October 2022, that school officials ignored red flags indicating that Piazza should not be working with children — specifically, a previous report that Piazza encouraged a child to reach into his pants during a swim lesson and a juvenile charge he was facing for performing a sexual act with his family dog.

During a hearing Friday, March 24, at the Vista courthouse, San Diego County Superior Court Judge Robert Dahlquist scheduled a jury trial for March 2024 along with a readiness hearing in Febru-

ary 2024. He also acknowledged that both sides are engaged in settlement negotiations.

“I’ll just encourage the parties to keep working on that … hopefully it will be resolved and the case will be dismissed,” Dahlquist said.

Piazza, 19, is facing child sexual abuse charges related to M.G. and two other children. A trial in that case was recently set for May 15.

Callan Swim School attorney David Baumgarten said in court last Friday that he hoped to see the civil case settled within 60 days. He also told The Coast News

be detrimental to the local community regarding noise and environmental pollution, traffic and emergency service response times.

Residents claim the

project's impact on the area will only intensify due to the ongoing construction of nearby Ocean Kamp, a 92-acre development with up to 700 homes, a 300room resort, retail and office spaces, and a 3.5-acre wave lagoon.

“If you are familiar with (state Route 76), or Interstate 5 from the 76 to the 78 and beyond, the last thing they need are a hundred-plus semis a day (and the auto traffic) added to these already congested roads,” said Rick Taylor via email.

Residents are also concerned about a lack of information regarding the expected future use of the project, its hours of operation and its future occupants.

A petition to stop the project has been circulating around the community.

So far, the petition has collected nearly 1,200 sig-

natures.

City Manager Jonathan Borrego said developer RAF Pacifica Group is currently in the process of preparing an environmental impact report, with a public hearing yet to be scheduled.

Once the report is ready, the project will go to the Planning Commission for consideration. If appealed, the project would then be subject to City Council’s approval.

“Most of the concerns have been related to potential truck traffic, air pollution and noise,” Borrego said via email. “It’s a little difficult to speculate on potential mitigation as the extent of these potential impacts has yet to be determined.”

Borrego noted that any such impacts would be identified and addressed in the forthcoming environmental impact report.

Solana Beach launches

age-friendly action plan

City working to expand options for older adults

Twice a month, a group of around a dozen Solana Beach residents passionate about knitting gathers at the La Colonia Community Center to socialize, help one another with knitting and show off their latest projects.

The group, Closely Knit, is one of several activities geared toward older adults in Solana Beach, although it is open to people of all ages. Group founder Linda Hart has led it for the past 20 years, meeting on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 9:30 a.m., and has seen the simple gathering grow into its community.

“It’s very significant that there’s a place to come where people can get help with their knitting. It keeps us connected,” Hart said. “Knitting is a very, very healthy thing to do. Knitting is one of the activities that is very good for preventing dementia. It’s beyond being creative — it alleviates depression because when you create something, it makes you feel happy.”

Solana Beach leaders are looking at strategies to expand the local offering of fulfilling activities for older adults, from knitting to outdoor activities, as well as crucial services related to transportation, housing and information sharing.

Data indicates that Solana Beach’s older demographic is growing more quickly than in other areas. Nationwide, the number of adults over the age of 65 is predicted to exceed youth under 18 by 2035, while Solana Beach is expected to reach that metric by 2025.

On March 22, the City Council approved the Age-Friendly Solana Beach

Action Plan, which identifies top priorities for making the city a sustainable place for older adults to continue living and thriving and tangible action steps to see them through.

“The city undertook this initiative with the goal to enhance the existing efforts to develop a well-designed, age-friendly community that fosters economic growth and sets the stage for happier, healthier residents of all ages,” said Assistant City Manager Dan King.

The city created the plan in partnership with the San Diego Foundation, American Association of Retired Persons and San Diego State University Social Policy Institute, guiding the process with community feedback from surveys, meetings with community leaders and public workshops in both English and Spanish.

“According to the survey, people believe Solana Beach is an excellent place to live, and it is very important to them to remain there as they age,” King said.

One of the plan’s five main focus areas is outdoor spaces and buildings, with the goal of increasing walkability and maintaining safe

and active spaces for residents of all ages.

To achieve this, the plan suggests creating new outdoor amenities like pocket parks, repairing handrails near the beach, increasing wayfinding signage and benches, and hosting age-friendly outdoor events throughout the city.

Marianne Leighton, 83, said she “aged out” of a local walking group once she became unable to keep up but thinks a similar group geared toward older adults would be beneficial. Thankfully, she has found other groups like Closely Knit where she can do the hobbies she loves.

“If you stay with groups long enough, people age out because they just can’t do it anymore,” she said.

Another focus area is social participation with inclusion, with action steps including hiring more Parks and Recreation staff to support additional programming, working with the Latinx community to offer more culturally inclusive activities through the city, and connecting older adults to after-school and mentoring programs.

“The fact is, that with-

Local control backers attempt new initiative

Immediately after state legislators passed the landmark SB 9 and 10 in 2021, taking most local landuse decisions away from city councils and county supervisors, resentful local officials vowed to run a referendum campaign and kill those new laws.

The two measures essentially eliminated R-1 single family zoning everywhere in California, allowing up to six housing units on lots formerly limited to one and making approval automatic for high-rise residential buildings on all streets reasonably close to mass transit.

Pain: Collateral damage from the War on Drugs

Remember those pain level charts in your physician’s office that asked what level of pain you have?

I used to think they actually cared about legitimate physical pain. My pain is at a 9 today.

Do physicians care? Not these days.

Most are too afraid of going up against the DOJ, DEA and the Medical Board. I actually don’t blame physicians, as the edict has come from agencies that they have no control over.

I do wonder why the Medical Board has not confronted these issues. But perhaps it’s easier just to ignore us who have been diagnosed with physical pain, even if we have MRIs, CT scans, and X-rays to prove we are legitimately hurting.

Before this so-called “War on Drugs,” I was able to get two Vicodin a day from my primary care doctor. In fact, she is the one who suggested it.

Then one day, she called me in and said she would no longer prescribe it. When I asked why, she went on about all the new regulations.

So there I was, left with 10 Vicodin and no more to come.

So now I am angry. An-

gry I can’t sleep because no position is comfortable; angry that even cannabis isn’t helping; angry that physicians who say, “Above all, do no harm,” have harmed me and thousands like me.

So if I seem like I am feeling sorry for myself, perhaps I am. And I am feeling sorry for so many I have talked to who are in the same boat.

Is it my fault I was born with hip dysplasia and other abnormalities that have led to this pain? If I had been born 30 years later, it would not have been a problem.

Today, they have fixes for the things I have if they are caught when you are young.

Is it my fault that my mother took a drug to avoid a miscarriage, even though she had not miscarried before?

She gave birth to me at age 21. I am part of a longitudinal study of this drug, which turns out to be not so great for daughters of DES mothers.

Lest you think I am suicidal, you would be mistaken. Anger energizes me to do more than I have been doing.

However, the pain makes me too tired to get even get up some mornings. There is a part of me that wishes I could go to Sacra-

mento and Washington D.C. and tell them in person who they are hurting.

But I sometimes wonder if they would care. After all, I am a senior citizen, a waste of space, and as some have called us, a “boomer.”

Rest assured I will not give up. I do not intend to live the rest of whatever life I have left in this kind of pain. There has to be an answer. There has to be hope.

If you have been hurt by doctors pulling pain medication from you for no apparent reason other than the neverending and illusive “War on Drugs,” I would like to hear from you. You can email me: lgreene98@aol. com.

Don’t let them take away our lives because some people have overdosed. I would bet there are more deaths from cigarettes and alcohol than there are from Vicodin or Norco.

And they are still sold over the counter, not as drugs (even though they are), but as general food items in some cases.

Maybe time to hold the people that are responsible for hurting so many people accountable. I know I will in the next election.

Letters to the Editor

Solution to downtown parking issue

That meant easy permitting, for example, for buildings up to five stories on any street where officials suddenly open a new bus line. It was not limited to areas in walking distance of rail or subway stops.

But the referendum mounted by dozens of local officials never got off the ground that year, partly because the coronavirus pandemic drove the cost of gathering initiative petition signatures to unprecedented heights — as much as $16 per signature in some parts of the San Francisco Bay area.

So the promised anti-density referendum never made the 2022 state ballot and the landmark laws remain on the books. Neither has produced much action as yet, in large part because no one has demonstrated that the authorized new housing would be profitable. There’s also a shortage of construction workers.

By contrast, a previous law allowing “ADUs” — accessory dwelling units often called “granny flats” — on virtually all onetime R-1 properties has produced major results. It is hard to find a significant home remodel or rebuild in this state that does not include one. Some cities are making ADUs major policy instruments in efforts to satisfy state housing density requirements.

No one knows whether most of these are occupied by renters or family members of the property owners. But some longtime property owners are downsizing into new ADUs, allowing their adult children and families to move into their properties’ main houses.

Into this picture now step some of the same folks who vowed in 2021 that they’d repeal SB 9 and 10.

They hope to circulate petitions for a new initiative aimed not only at those two laws, but the other housing density requirements now being imposed around California via a spate of new laws passed by pro-density legislators led by Democratic

state Sen. Scott Wiener of San Francisco, who has spearheaded this movement for most of the last decade.

Wiener claims only massive new construction can solve the state’s housing shortage, variously estimated at anywhere from 1 million to 3.5 million dwelling units by state authorities over the last five years.

That, of course, ignored the vast store of vacated office buildings, mini-malls and big box stores created by the pandemic.

It’s much cheaper and faster to convert them to housing than building new units while fighting off lawsuits and ever-inflating costs for materials, land and labor. Held up by labor unions and legislators until recently, conversions are now taking off.

The putative new initiative would likely not interfere with those changes, because they cause little variation in building footprints and won’t alter neighborhoods.

But it could stymie more attempts by the state to take over land use decisions long the purview of local governments and local ballot measures.

“We’d like to fix the ambiguities some people saw in our previous proposed initiative” said Anita Enander, a city councilwoman and former mayor of Los Altos Hills, near San Jose. “Our new effort should be more generally supportable. It would simply say that when state law and local land use laws conflict, the local ones will prevail. A lot of people don’t want extreme dense housing. They just want to live in their own homes.”

Added Dennis Richards, a former longtime member of the San Francisco planning commission, “Taking this field away from local government is a way of wiping out democracy. People like Wiener are saying it does not matter what local residents think about their own cities, or how they’ve voted.”

Historically, local control has usually won out over centralized planning when Californians have voted on it. Sponsors of the hoped-for measure say polling indicates 60% to 65% approval.

Even if it’s not actually that high, don’t bet against this effort once it gets going.

SANDAG will hire new in-house auditor

REGION — After weeks of debate, the SANDAG board of directors on March 24 decided to hire an internal candidate to replace its outgoing independent auditor.

Independent Performance Auditor Mary Khoshmashrab, hired in April 2019 and recently announced her retirement, will step down in October to assist with the transition.

Under her tenure, Khoshmashrab’s department has unearthed several issues with SANDAG, notably thousands in "questionable" and "improper" credit card purchases, millions in questionable contract increases and nearly $2 million in missing toll fees on state Route 125.

The audits have also reported a lack of oversight, documentation and employee training.

Several auditors encouraged the board to hire an internal candidate after several members lobbied for weeks to hire outside consultants to oversee the office.

“We do not attack SANDAG,” said associate auditor Michael Ryan. “It bothers us when it is used to attack the agency. Our work is meant to help and protect the agency. Our work requires us to be truly independent. Mary, being truly independent, has allowed us to find what we’ve found. We need someone as independent as her when she retires.”

Doug DePete and Krystal Carranza, both auditors at SANDAG, also voiced support for Khoshmashrab and keeping the position at SANDAG.

“This is the hardest working and most cohesive team I’ve been on,” DePete

said. “They support each other and want to make SANDAG better. Our audits will make headlines...until we make SANDAG better and the media won’t notice.”

During a March 17 executive committee meeting, Chairwoman Nora Vargas and Vice Chair Sean Elo-Riveria of San Diego attempted to push through an outside consultant based on SANDAG General Counsel John Kirk’s interpretation of state law.

But San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones and audit committee members and Khoshmashrab pushed back against hiring a third-party firm to exercise control over SANDAG employees.

The meeting became contentious when Vargas, citing “processes,” allowed Khoshmashrab three minutes to respond to Kirk’s opinion. Jones said Khoshmashrab, a SANDAG employee, deserved unlimited time as a critical figure in the discussion.

Other committee members also felt it was best to keep the position in-house.

“I strongly favor keeping the position internal … for many reasons,” Dave Zito, chairman of the Audit Committee, said during the March 24 meeting.

The Executive Committee eventually agreed to keep the position at SANDAG and within the boundaries of Assembly Bill 805, a state law establishing the Office of the Independent Auditor.

The independent auditor’s office, charged with ensuring financial compliance, has just five employees despite Khoshmashrab's recommendation of at least 15 workers to properly oversee the agency’s annual budget of more than $1 billion.

City, arts center rework deal

Updated contract requires increased financial clarity

ESCONDIDO — The City Council has agreed to a new operations and management agreement with the California Center for the Arts after years of operating on expired terms.

Council approved the new agreement, spelling out the city's maintenance and financial obligations during the March 22 council meeting.

The new agreement will operate on a 15-month term basis before switching to a 12-month term basis when the new agreement expires in June 2024.

According to staff,

these term limits are meant to align the agreement with the city’s annual budget approval process each June.

Council originally approved a management agreement with the California Center for the Arts Foundation, the nonprofit organization that runs the arts center, in 2014 with a term of five years. Although that agreement expired in 2019, the city and the arts center have continued to manage the center under the same terms on a month-to-month basis.

Last year, the city committed to creating a new management agreement with the arts center foundation that would spell out exactly what responsibilities the city and the foundation have, which the previous agreement lacked.

The new agreement

clarified that the city, which owns the building, is responsible for sound equipment and lighting.

“For many years, there’s been mispractice in the process,” said Deputy City Manager Chris McKinney at the council meeting. “Staff have generally agreed on how to maintain the center, but it was beginning to cause problems because it hadn’t been spelled out in the agreement.”

The city also requested more financial transparency from the arts center foundation.

The foundation must include the management fee it receives from the city in its annual budget. The city pays the center a $54,614 per month management fee.

The foundation must also show how the fee is

distributed each month and must report any deviation to the city. Additionally, the foundation is required to provide quarterly reports on finances with the participation of the foundation’s chief executive officer.

Also, as part of the new agreement, the arts foundation must contribute $100,000 of its management fee toward large city celebrations, including Independence Day, Dia De Los Muertos, Música En La Plaza and Winter Wonderland.

Councilmember Consuelo Martinez said the new agreement was a “new chapter” for the city and the arts center. She was also excited to see how the additional funds benefit

center, along North River Road and state Route 78; a rock slide on Morro Heights Road; flooding of the Oceanside Golf Course from Pilgrim Creek, and various pothole repairs and debris removal on several city streets.

The La Salina wastewater overflow spilled 62,500 gallons, most of which was released into Loma Alta Creek and heightened permissible bacterial levels, forcing the city to close Buccaneer Beach.

Although the bacterial levels have since returned to permit limits, the beach remains closed due to county stormwater advisories.

Oceanside’s “water year” measures how much water the city has received between October 1 and September 30.

So far, in less than six months of this current water year, Oceanside has received 17.51 inches of rain, having already drastically surpassed the average annual 11.36 inches of rain the city usually receives.

“We’re at 175% of the normal average with still over six months to go,” said Fire Chief David Parsons.

Parsons noted that although most rain is received by this time in the water year, the region is still expecting more rain to come.

So far, the current year is already in third place among the city’s top five highest rainfall years within the last 23 years, just shy of second place currently held by the 17.98 inches of rain Oceanside received in 2019.

The year 2010 received

Additionally, the city could receive 93.75% reimbursement if a FEMA Declaration is issued.

Parsons said a response from any of those agencies could take hours or weeks.

add the following small at the bottom:

Joy Morgan - nails • Marianne Hawkins - hair

Johanna Watson - Hair

• Patricia Elliot - Salon Owner

23.77 inches and remained the highest rainfall year in that same period.

“My understanding is there’s more to come,” Parsons said.

Parsons cautioned that the city must be proactive with its emergency declaration to receive reimbursement funding from the state or federal government.

The city is seeking a Governor’s Declaration or an Office of Emergency Services Director’s Concurrence to provide up to 75% reimbursement of eligible costs.

“I expect that to be weeks,” he said. Oceanside’s emergency declaration will not request funding to fix the massive sinkhole that swallowed all three westbound lanes on SR 78 at College Boulevard, which Caltrans is handling.

Stealing from the classics

Originally made in 1937, the movie ‘A Star Is Born” was re-created in 1954, 1976 and 2018. Watching the 1954 Judy Garland version sparked a family conversation of originals vs. reproductions.

I’m a purist who prefers original films, while my bride argues that if the message still works, introducing it to a new audience is a good thing.

This led to analysis of an ad in Exhibitor magazine with a serious young woman, arms crossed, asking a series of questions focused on her ignorance of you, your company and your product.

Finally, she asks, “What was it you wanted to sell me?” with the moral, “Sales start before your account rep calls with inte-

grated marketing solutions from Exhibitor.”

This clever message is sure to persuade its audience to place advertising in this publication. My bride likes it.

However, I’m troubled that this is an exact remake of a 1958 print ad created for McGraw-Hill business publications. That ad presented a grouchy old man but was otherwise the same right down the line.

The earlier version become one of the best known and most quoted examples

Pet of the Week

Mango is pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 2-year-old, 10-pound, male, domestic short hair cat with a red tabby coat.

Mango arrived at a shelter in Riverside County after his owner died. He was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters.) He was adopted, then returned when the resident cat made it clear that he didn’t want a roommate.

The $100 adoption fee for Mango includes medical exam, neuter, upto-date vaccinations and

registered microchip.

of print advertising ever, suggesting someone found it in a book, liked the idea and lifted it wholesale.

Using tiny type, the Exhibitor ad calls itself an homage to the original. Legally they’re fine, though I believe it’s cheesy and lacks innovative thinking.

Casual readers will see this ad and think Exhibitor’s “original” concept reflects the magazine’s creative product. Arguably, they have nothing creative of their own to sell and are just poaching someone else’s concepts.

Yet assuming Mark Twain’s observation, “There is no such thing as a new idea,” is correct, then my bride’s point is the stronger claim.

Still, perhaps the answer’s somewhere in the middle, borrowing and refreshing ideas to adapt them to your own audience.

Because regardless of what you sell, you’re probably looking for new ways of imparting an old message. And with Mr. Clemens (Twain) in mind, you’re potentially examining marketing ideas from other industries or eras.

And there is unquestionably a treasure trove of good content out there to get inspiration from. But just saying “Got Widgets?” because another industry successfully used that tagline is, in this columnist’s opinion, lazy and bereft of anything original.

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

'Relics' offers closer look into artist's childhood, inspiration

OMA exhibit lets visitors witness art in real time

— Robert Xavier Burden seeks the admiration he once had for sacred relics of the past through his massive, labor-intensive paintings that depict motifs of religious iconography, political commentary and popular culture.

And with his latest exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Art, Burden encourages people to witness his artistic process firsthand.

The exhibit, appropriately titled “Relics,” showcases several of Burden’s works over the last 17 years. The sacred relics in question are Batman, Star Wars and other classic toys and action figures that Burden once coveted as a child, painted throughout each piece.

Burden grew up in Toronto before moving to California nearly 20 years ago, leaving San Francisco for San Diego during the pandemic.

As Burden grew up, his once beloved childhood treasures eventually began to look more like cheap, plastic toys that represented the dark side of consumerism. With his paintings, he hoped to renew that sense of awe he once had for these former “sacred objects.”

“There’s a reason I’m painting a toy and not a movie still,” Burden said. “I’m not painting Harrison Ford as Han Solo, I’m painting a Han Solo toy.”

In the background of his paintings are decorative, ornate patterns reminiscent of classic religious iconography from Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Islamic traditions that showcase these sacred objects.

Burden found inspiration for this element from the churches his mother used to occasionally take him to as a child.

REGION — San Diego

County's unemployment rate remained 3.7% in February, unchanged from January, according to the figures released March 24 by the state Employment Development Department.

February's unemployment rate was less than February 2022's rate of 4.1%. Last month's rates compare with an unadjusted unemployment rate of 4.8% for California and 3.9% for the nation during the same period.

According to the EDD, between January 2023 and February 2023, nonfarm employment increased by 7,800, from 1,551,600 to 1,559,400. In addition, agricultural employment added 500 jobs.

Leisure and hospitali-

dows, the altarpiece art… those were the most beautiful parts about it to me as a kid, which is clearly evident in what I’m doing now,” Burden said.

Included in the show is his most famous piece, the massive 8-by-8 foot, intricate “Star Wars” painting with most of the classic toys from the 1970s and 80s.

Burden also makes ref erences to other characters and themes outside of “Star Wars” by including charac ters like Gandalf from “The Lord of the Rings” saga.

Obviously, Gandalf is not from the “Star Wars” realm, but Burden said he included Gandalf because the character is said to have inspired Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The huge piece includes a legend that tells viewers what all of the hidden refer

are largely playful in nature, but some of his pieces also contain historical and political commentary, like “Battle of the Arctic,” depicting toys from five coun-

tries vying for control of the Arctic: United States, Canada, Norway, Denmark and Russia.

In addition to renewing his sense of awe over his childhood treasures, Burden hopes to bridge the gap between fan art and fine art with his collection of work.

“My goal is to get the fine art crowd on board with what I’m doing,” Burden said. “You can be a fan artist or a fine artist, but it’s hard to be both.”

As an interesting twist, Burden is also currently working on his “Aliens” painting that depicts alien character figurines from various television series over the last few decades right in the middle of his exhibit at the art museum.

Between Thursdays and Sundays until June, museum visitors will be able to see Burden work on his latest painting in real-time.

“I think it is a good idea to actually show people the process. I mean, we’re living in a culture where we don’t really appreciate visual imagery as much as we did in the past,” Burden said. “We’re just inundated with visual images and maybe we don’t understand the process of painting and how laborious it can be.”

These huge, detailed paintings take up a lot of Burden’s time.

On average, the artist is putting thousands of hours

of work into each painting and produces about three massive paintings each year.

While Burden focused on working on the massive, intricate painting that already has more than 1,700 hours of work put into it with much more to go, he welcomes any questions that visitors may have for him.

Burden said he also looks forward to seeing visitors document how his painting changed in his four months of residency at the art museum.

Visitors are encouraged to return periodically to

the exhibit to see Burden’s progress. Every few weeks, new aliens will change from their blue outlines to colorful imagery that appears to pop out from the painting into real life.

“It’s also fun for people to see the change over time,” he said. “Maybe after three days there won’t be much change, but after three months there will be from when I brought it in to what it’s going to look like at the end.”

“Relics” is on display until June 4 at the Oceanside Museum of Art, 704 Pier View Way, Oceanside.

Leucadia homeowners oppose Bella Vista development

tion lawsuit after purchasing a designated affordable home in Olivenhain over 80 qualified low-income applicants.

— Several hundred Encinitas residents and multiple homeowners associations oppose a proposed 17-unit residential development in a rural Leucadia neighborhood, claiming the project’s “excessive” densification goes far beyond the land’s current zoning designation and will negatively impact the surrounding communities and coastal resources.

The 10-acre vacant lot along Bella Vista Drive, a parcel roughly the size of 10 football fields located north of Blue Heron Avenue and south of La Costa Avenue, is surrounded by single-family homes and open spaces near Batiquitos Lagoon.

The site, and most of the surrounding neighborhoods, is zoned Rural Residential 1 (RR1), allowing a maximum of one unit per developable acre.

“Unfortunately, the landowners have chosen to artificially inflate the sales price of the property by marketing the ‘density bonus’ to triple the number of units intended under current zoning, which the land is not capable of supporting without significant negative impact to his fragile coastal resource,” according to a statement signed by representatives of five neighboring homeowners associations.

The property, nicknamed Biophilia Ranch by the landowners’ Don and Michoyo Kira for its rare local wildlife and native flora, has steep hills on the parcel’s east side, with 2.38 acres of slopes exceeding 40% grade.

Adjusting for slopes at the Bella Vista Drive site, there are approximately 6 acres of flat usable land to build 17 single-family homes or roughly three homes per acre.

Under normal circumstances, residents argue this zoning designation permits approximately six low-impact residences based on slope-adjusted net acreage — one-third of the units proposed under the landowner’s density bonus calculations.

But California’s Density Bonus law, enacted in 1979, allows a developer to bypass local zoning limitations and build more housing based on gross acreage (entire parcel, slopes included) if the project provides a minimum number of affordable units.

Additionally, as the result of a 2016 lawsuit against the city of Encinitas by developer David Meyer of DCM Properties, the city agreed to round up fractional units when calculating the number of homes for any density bonus project, creating at least one additional market-rate home for any development.

Bella Vista has a gross acreage of 10.1 acres, which

equals 10.1 housing units for a developer under a density bonus before rounding up to 11 units.

Since two residences are designated for low-income buyers, the 50% density bonus gives the project 16.5 units, rounding up to 17 single-family homes.

In short, the Bella Vista Drive project will look significantly different from the surrounding neighborhoods, with some homeowners questioning the purpose of municipal zoning.

“I wouldn’t have bought my house if it was zoned for high density,” said one homeowner who lives on nearby Bella Azul Court overlooking the proposed development site. “Apparently, with bonus density, zoning means nothing anymore. I’m in favor of development — that’s normal, that’s progress. But it shouldn’t be one size fits all. It’s heavily impactful to our area.”

The homeowner, who insisted on anonymity out of fear of reprisal, said while they support development in general, the area is not an ideal site for increased density projects in such stark contrast to the surrounding neighborhoods.

The Bella Vista applicants are not seeking any

concessions or incentives. Still, several waivers were filed with the city’s planning department, including front and side yard setbacks, building height, lot coverage and parking requirements.

Mayor Tony Kranz, a former District 1 councilman, told The Coast News the state’s density bonus law had created some difficult issues between developers and residents.

“I’m not a fan of density bonus from the standpoint of its impact on neighborhoods,” Kranz said. “It’s intended to provide for affordable housing. The goal is laudable, but in my opinion, density bonus should be dedicated to larger projects in areas that are establishing their own neighborhoods. But that’s not the way the state law is written.”

A municipal government may only deny a project utilizing a density bonus if it poses health, safety, environment, or historic property risks.

In most cases, however, those concerns are difficult to prove, Kranz said, harkening back to the controversial Goodson project, a recently approved 250-unit apartment complex along Encinitas Boulevard in Olivenhain.

The Bella Vista Drive

plot is in a very high fire safety hazard severity zone, according to CalFire.

Project applicants

One of the project applicants is Erin McKinley, a land advisor at Colliers International and manager

of Future West Land Company.

McKinley is a member of David Santistevan’s team at Colliers in La Jolla.

Santistevan, an executive VP at Colliers, was one of several defendants in a federal housing discrimina-

A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit, and the parties reportedly settled out of court.

McKinley declined to comment for this article.

According to the California Secretary of State, Future West was formed in January 2021 by Orange County attorney Nancy Dubonnet. Future West’s initial business and mailing addresses shared the same address as Santistevan’s La Jolla office. In August 2022, Santistevan was added as a manager of Future West, with Dubonnet listed as the registered corporate agent.

On March 23, Santistevan, who owns several legitimate shell companies for purchasing real estate, was removed as a manager and replaced with McKinley. The business and mailing addresses for Future West were also changed to McKinley’s residence in Solana Beach.

The other applicant is listed as “Greg Brown,” but no further information is provided on the city’s disclosure statement. The Coast News could not confirm the individual’s identity or relationship to McKinley.

AZTECS IN 1ST FINAL FOUR

SDSU, others make history

It’s not over yet. Just three games remain to crown a champion.

What started as a wideopen tourney on the men’s side has delivered an unexpected and historical Final Four slate.

Let’s look at the best of the best from March Madness:

San Diego State advanced to the Final Four for the first time in program history. The Aztecs aren’t the only men’s team to make history. Florida Atlantic University and Miami achieved historic firsts after making it to the Final Four.

Best Upsets: No. 16 seed Fairleigh Dickinson knocked out No. 1 Purdue, 63-58; No. 13 Furman took down No. 4 Virginia, 68-67; No. 15 Princeton bounced No. 2 Arizona, 59-55; and No. 5 SDSU took down No. 1 Alabama, 71-64.

Best Defense: San Diego State Aztecs. When you hold a team that averages 80 points per game way under its average, then come back and do it again and again, you get the award.

Best Men’s Team Shooting: Miami Hurricanes. Against No. 1 Houston, the Canes shot 11 of 25 from behind the arc in the Sweet 16 round.

Best of Two Halves: UCLA vs. Gonzaga: After losing a 13-point second-half lead, UCLA held a one-point lead over the Bulldogs with 13 seconds remaining in the game. But Gonzaga’s Julian Strawther nailed a game-winning shot, sending the Zags to the Elite Eight.

Best Coaching Job: San Diego State head coach Brian Dutcher against Alabama. Dutcher and the Aztecs made major adjustments with a well-timed timeout, trailing the Crimson Tide by nine. SDSU went on a 12-0 run immediately after to take control of the game.

Best SmackDown: Connecticut over Arkansas. The Huskies followed it up with an 82-54 rout of Gonzaga.

Best Unknown: Florida Atlantic University (FAU), of the Conference USA, is heading to Houston from Boca Raton.

Good times await at iconic Carlsbad 5000

Late FT difference in Elite 8 win

Trammell made the second of two free throws with 1.2 seconds left to give San Diego State a 57-56 victory over Creighton on Sunday in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament's South Regional final, sending the Aztecs to their first Final Four.

“We’re grateful to be advancing,” San Diego State coach Brian Dutcher said. The Aztecs had never reached the Elite Eight before their 71-64 victory over Alabama, the tournament's overall top seed, two days earlier.

“I told the team in the locker room — they had the music going. I walked in, and I told them, ‘Turn it down.’ I said, ‘Either sing, dance, or get out of the way. Aztecs are going to the Final Four.’ ”

Trammell was fouled by Ryan Nembhard. The 5-foot-10-inch senior guard’s first free throw went off the back iron before he made the second. The free throws were the only ones Trammell shot in Sunday’s game.

“They came off a little screen. He got downhill and tried to make a floater,” said Nembhard, a 6-foot sophomore guard from

Aurora, Ontario. “I tried to make a rearview contest. Called a foul, so yeah.”

Trammell said he wasn’t surprised by the foul call.

“I think I got fouled, but it was up to the refs to decide,” said Trammell, who is in his lone season with San Diego State after playing the previous two seasons at Seattle and beginning his college career at City College of San Francisco. “Even if they didn’t call it, we were going to lace them up and get ready for an overtime.”

The Blue Jays had tied the score with 34 seconds remaining on Baylor Scheierman’s layup off an intercepted pass.

Scheierman’s long pass bounced off the hands of sophomore Arthur Kaluma out of bounds as time expired.

The Aztecs will face Florida Atlantic in a national semifinal Saturday in Houston. Oddsmakers have made San Diego State a 1½-point favorite.

Junior guard Lamont Butler scored a game-high 18 points for fifth-seeded San Diego State (31-6) while Trammell added 12.

Center Ryan Kalkbrenner led the sixth-seeded Blue Jays (24-13) with 17

while Kaluma and Scheierman added 12 each in front of a crowd announced at 20,051 at the Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kaluma is the brother of Aztecs senior forward Adam Seiko, who was scoreless in 22 minutes, 41 seconds of play, missing his only shot.

Creighton was also seeking its first Final Four berth. The Blue Jays were playing in the Elite Eight for the second time and first time since 1941, when the tournament consisted of eight teams.

San Diego State is the first team from the Mountain West Conference to reach the Final Four and were the conference's first team to reach the Elite Eight. The conference began operations in 1999 and its first basketball season was 1999-2000.

“Here we are,” Dutcher said. “We’re making the next step, and it’s something we’ve always talked about, and I’m sure there were people that doubted we could do it, but we never doubted for a minute.

“Not to say it’s easy to get there or that we would ever get there, but we’re there now, and we’re going to go and try to win the thing.”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when your Carlsbad 5000 time means absolutely nothing.

Or, it means absolutely everything, which helps make the Carlsbad 5K among North County’s premier sporting events.

Actually, the Carlsbad 5K is known around the globe and why not?

It has produced 16 world records and eight U.S. marks as top-shelf athletes blaze through downtown Carlsbad, their soles consuming the 3.1 miles in seemingly a blink of an eye.

But the magic of the 37th edition of the Carlsbad 5K is its beauty in the eye of the beholder.

Want to go for a personal-best time over 5 kilometers — you go!

Want to take a more modified pace while touring this seaside slice of paradise — have at it!

Content to walk the course knowing that no matter your performance there’s an ice-cold beer, or two, just past the finish line, with a side of live music — cheers!

It’s an event that has something for anyone who can lace up their shoes, whether sprinting, jogging or walking is their mode of operation.

No kidding, even the children are invited and welcome.

Before the big crowds line up on Sunday, the

sports talk

youngsters will crawl, waddle and zigzag their way to a tape at distances that are age appropriate.

Once while covering the event for the once-great North County Times, I wasn’t appropriate in my reporting, to some.

Instead of racing toward the finish line, I stopped at every watering hole along the course. Of course, I called my wife to pick me up post-race, and thanks again to esteemed editor Eric Breier for cleaning up my copy.

All this fun while moving one’s feet was originally conceived by three people with considerable North County roots: Tim Murphy, Steve Scott, the legendary American miler and former Cal State San Marcos coach, and Shauna Buffington.

We mention Murphy, in particular this year, as the running community lost this tireless race promoter last August. Murphy, true to his upbeat Irish disposition and love for all things running, would be heartened by the more than 7,000 participants

Torrey Pines caps unbeaten season with rugby state title, a SoCal first

March 18, the undefeated Torrey Pines High School Falcons varsity rugby team became the first Southern California high school team to secure a rugby state championship.

The Falcons beat the Northern California champions, St. Francis of Mountain View, 31-14, in a fierce battle in the stadium on the campus of Saddleback College in Mission Viejo.

The win gave Torrey Pines

double success this season. The previous weekend, the Falcons beat San Clemente High School 19-14 at home, crowning TPHS the Southern California champions.

Head coach Matty Sandoval said “We’ve played high level rugby at Torrey Pines HS for many years but could never close the gap between the powerhouse high school rugby teams of Northern California.

“I am very proud of this team for finally getting it done.”

AGE FRIENDLY

out additional staff, we will be hard-pressed to implement these actions,” City Manager Greg Wade said.

Higher education institutions in San Diego County, like Mira Costa College and San Diego College of Continuing Education, also offer classes specifically geared toward older adults.

When it comes to housing, the plan discusses increasing lighting in neighborhoods, educating residents on minor home safety modifications, promoting and supporting organizations offering inhome wraparound services for older adults, and exploring opportunities for ADA-accessible units designated for older adults.

Vista eyes short-term rental regulations

VISTA —The City Council is taking steps to introduce the first regulations to ensure an even playing field when it comes to the hot-button issue of short-term vacation rentals.

Currently, the city has no official regulations and operators are required to have a business license. The situation will change as the council at its March 21 meeting directed city staff to craft an ordinance.

The ordinance will tackle such issues as operators paying transient occupancy tax, noise, parking and length of stay, among others.

The plan also discusses transportation, with specific attention to offering community information sessions regarding e-bikes and public transit, adding sidewalks and sidewalk ramps to increase accessibility, and expanding overall transportation options in the city.

City staff said many residents supported the idea of a local shuttle service to take older adults to appointments and grocery shopping.

The plan’s last focus area is communication and outreach, with commitments to finding non-virtual means to share information about city events, news and services with older adults such as mailers and printed information at kiosks.

“The fundamental reason we’re here is the respect for residential neighborhoods,” Councilwoman Katie Melendez said. “Also, to address neighborhood concerns such as noise and parking.”

Several short-term vacation rental owners spoke to the council in favor of regulations saying it’s unfair they are paying transient occupancy tax and contributing to the city while other operators are not.

They said regulations will add protections to operators and guests alike to supplement those offered by online platforms such as Airbnb and Vrbo.

The operators also said the process should be easy and streamlined and warned not to emulate Encinitas where they said it

can take one to two years to receive a permit.

“Do no not make it an elaborate process … and include a minimal fee,” said Kimberly Jackson, who owns Vacation Rentals by Kimberly. “Encinitas completely shot themselves in the foot and created so much work on staff.”

Some residents who spoke in support of the regulations said that shortterm rentals can put stress on a neighborhood as some guests do not follow the rules, such as playing loud music or engaging in general loud behavior at night.

But the transient occupancy tax was one of the biggest talking points as one operator, Juan Alvarez, said he rented his two

homes for $123,000 in 2021 and paid $12,000 in taxes to the city.

As an example, Councilman Joe Green said if there are 200 rentals paying the 10% tax, it would equal $1.2 million per year in additional revenue for the city.

City Manager John Conley said there are just 22 registered rentals in the city. Councilman Dan O’Donnell said he performed a search of Airbnb and found hundreds of units listed, most of which are not registered.

“I’m all for more regulations, but I want to be careful not to go down too deep a rabbit hole,” O’Donnell said.

The council also dis-

cussed decibel meters to be installed to ensure compliance and to help reduce the number of noise complaints to the Vista Sheriff’s Station.

Some operators said they should be treated like hotels with consistent regulations, but Melendez and Green disagreed, pointing to one major difference — hotels have different zoning compared to home rentals.

The council will also consider waiving initial permit fees for operators who have been paying their taxes and being good stewards.

As for violations, Melendez suggested a “three strikes” and lose the permit policy, with rest of the council in agreement.

— The City Council is considering a 100% affordable housing project to prevent the city from falling behind on its state-mandated affordable housing requirements.

The city anticipates triggering California’s No Net Loss law for not maintaining an adequate supply of affordable housing sites and failing to meet its lower-income Regional Housing Needs Assessment

REGION — A sexual assault lawsuit naming Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System as defendants comes just days after Fletcher announced he was abandoning his state senate bid to enter treatment for alcohol abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The plaintiff, Grecia Figueroa, 34, a former MTS employee, alleges Fletcher sexually assaulted her twice last year. Since 2019, Fletcher has served as the chairman of the MTS board of directors as part of his duties as a county supervisor.

The lawsuit alleges

obligations for the current housing cycle.

The city would need to select additional sites (not in the city’s housing element) for lower-income housing and increase the number of affordable units on those sites. Additionally, the city may have to provide more accessory dwelling units than previously projected or upzone additional sites to 30 units per acre.

But the city may only upzone new sites with approval from voters under Proposition A.

The city began its effort to prevent a “no net loss” scenario last June by searching for a consultant to develop a housing element update.

sexual harassment, failure to prevent sexual harassment and retaliation, sexual assault and battery and whistleblower retaliation.

Figueroa reported the alleged abuse to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which issued a right-to-sue letter authorizing Figueroa to file the lawsuit.

Figueroa’s attorney, Zach Schumacher, describes a situation of fear and power dynamics as his client feared

In November, city officials selected Kimley-Horn and Associates.

Then in February, Mayor Tony Kranz requested an additional study session to understand better the legal requirements behind the No Net Loss law. As a result, the City Council met for the study session on March 22 to hear a summary of the legal requirements, review future site selection criteria and learn the tools available to address the potential "no net loss" situation.

“What I’m understanding from this meeting is we will have a long and probably controversial process ahead of us to be able to find the density we need to

for her career and reputation.

Figueroa, who is Peruvian by birth and has lived in the U.S. since she was 13, recently posted to her blog a piece on March 8 (International Women’s Day) about respecting women’s rights.

“If you are a man, don’t just post about women’s rights, respect them in your personal life,” Figueroa wrote.

Lawsuit allegations

In May 2021, Figueroa, who was working as an MTS public relations specialist, noticed Fletcher was viewing her Instagram account without following her,

upzone and put it forward to our voters,” said Councilmember Kellie Hinze.

Rather than upzoning a new site, Hinze requested staff explore options to develop a 100% affordable housing project at the “L-7” site on Quail Gardens Drive.

In 2018, the council removed the L-7 parcel from the housing element due to residents’ concerns over increased density in a rural area.

Attorney Barbara Kautz presented the No Net Loss legal requirements to the council, noting that one 100% affordable housing project could help curb the city’s looming housing deficit.

known as “lurking," the lawsuit states.

On Valentine’s Day in 2022, Fletcher approached Figueroa after a press conference and put his arm around her shoulder “without her consent,” and made a comment about one of her social media posts.

Two weeks later, Figueroa alleges Fletcher sent her a direct message saying he was at home with no wife (former state Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez) or kids.

On May 12, Fletcher asked Figueroa to come to the hotel since Gonzalez was out of town and he was putting the kids to bed. Fletcher asked if Figueroa would meet up for a drink at the hotel.

“Just one beer,” Figueroa responded.

When she got to the hotel, they entered a stairwell where Fletcher tried to kiss her. Figueroa “rejected the advance” and said she had no intention of meeting with him outside of a conversation, the lawsuit reads.

“Ms. Figueroa felt pressured to reciprocate Fletcher’s advances because she knew he had authority, as both a career-politician (sic) and as chair of the MTS board, to destroy her career at MTS and to potentially

that he is prepared to go to trial if a settlement cannot be reached.

“We have a trial date and we will be prepared to

“The city’s deficit is small, around 50 to 55 units,” Kautz said. “One affordable housing project might make up the difference.”

The City Council approved Hinze’s motion 4-1, with Councilmember Bruce Ehlers opposed.

Ehlers felt the motion needed to be revised, noting that the meeting was intended as a study session and was not to include specific site selection.

“The motion was made to investigate a parcel and turn it into 100% lower income, and what the item for the night was the workshop on no net loss,” Ehlers told The Coast News. “It was

humiliate her publicly if she made him angry,” the suit reads.

On Dec. 1, 2022, the suit alleges Fletcher again asked Figueroa into the adjacent room where he “sexually assaulted her a second time” by grabbing her breasts, pulling off some of her clothes and “forcefully shoving” his hand over her “vaginal area.”

Fired at MTS

On Feb. 6, Fletcher announced his candidacy for California Senate. The same day, Figueroa was fired from MTS despite having good to excellent performance reviews, according to the complaint.

Once Figueroa retained a lawyer for pre-litigation discussions with Fletcher, he requested she “remain absolutely silent about her story.”

Figueroa claims she agreed, but it was shortlived after Fletcher “soon resorted to threats of bullying, intimidation and defamatory legal action if she brought the story to “light,” the suit claims.

On March 26, Fletcher and Gonzalez, through their attorney, said they intended to sue Figueroa for extortion if she filed a civil suit. The couple said they would make Figueroa “look terrible, and it’s going to follow her for the

defend our case,” Baumgarten said. “I remain confident, based on what I know, that my client didn’t do anything wrong.”

The lawsuit claims that Callan Swim School owner Brett Callan was made

only tangentially related, if that, and at the beginning of the meeting, it was stated that we would not talk about selecting lots. So I thought it was premature and hadn’t been properly noticed.”

At the meeting, Ehlers also noted that he was a “comparative shopper” and wanted to see what other options were before jumping fully on board with L-7.

Kranz, who previously voted to remove the L-7 site roughly five years earlier, was inclined to vote against the motion but was later persuaded to vote in favor after Hinze included a direction for staff to analyze what it would take to upzone a site.

rest of her life.”

Later that night, Fletcher withdrew from the race and announced on Twitter he was seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress and alcohol abuse.

Fletcher’s response

Fletcher appeared to get ahead of the news breaking about Figueroa’s lawsuit filed at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday night by issuing a press release on Wednesday morning claiming he was anticipating a lawsuit containing “false allegations.”

Fletcher, and his attorney, Danielle Hultenius Moor, are claiming Fletcher and his wife, former Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, are facing a legal attempt to “obtain millions of dollars.”

“Last year, I made a terrible mistake engaging in consensual interactions with someone outside my marriage,” Fletcher’s statement reads. “I made clear it could not continue or advance and desperately hoped I could leave this mistake in my past. However, this individual and an attorney demanded millions of dollars from me and my family with the threat of not only embarrassment but a willingness to lie about the circumstances and nature of interactions.”

aware around spring 2020 of a report from a parent that Piazza had “told her daughter to reach toward his genital area” during a lesson but that he did not terminate Piazza’s employment.

The suit went on to say that in October 2020, Piazza’s mother, Larissa, who served as the pool’s manager, also informed Callan that her son was facing criminal charges for performing a sexual act with the family dog.

Piazza’s employment was briefly terminated at this time, but he was rehired months later and, the suit states, sexually abused M.G. in mid-2021.

Callan Swim School claimed in a February court filing that they were prohibited from inquiring into Piazza’s juvenile charges related to his dog or using the charges as a basis to suspend or terminate him.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

Create your own yardscape from found materials

On a quiet corner in suburban Carlsbad I spot an odd collection of garden art, that forces me to slow down and take a closer look each time I drive past.

I finally got to meet the owner of this eclectic garden, Terri Polley, and she described her ten-year hunt to find the perfect objects for her tiny front yard garden.

“The VW door came from the first car I owned in 1966,” Polley said. “And the license plate tells a little bit about where I came from, Iowa!”

Polley gleefully guides me through the sculptural garden, and explains how the construction of wine bottles arose.

“I had a few bottles from a wine club that we belonged to, and then once it got started all the neighbors brought me theirs,” she said. “I went out an bought a drill press, and watched a You Tube video about how to use it.”

Now, the bottle construction is the entryway to her garden, and slows down traffic on her quiet street.

Create your own yardscape

A yard scape is a cross between the hardscape and found objects that appear in your garden. As many of you know hardscape is the collection of any type of mate-

rial that is not a living plant, tree, flower or vegetable.

If you wander through your neighborhood chances are that someone has created their own collection of driftwood, shells, rocks, sculpture and even children’s toys!

Follow the

designer’s leads

Jamie Durie, landscape designer from HGTV, and author of “The Outdoor Room, (Jamie Durie Publi-

cations) reminds us “when designing an eclectic garden mix, I shop around the neighborhood (Okay, I did a little dumpster diving) for discarded and neglected pots and plants.

What a great way to shop for planters and what goes in them!”

Jamie also suggests checking online in local Next Door or Craig’s List services that advertise free stuff.

When homeowners

or apartment dwellers are moving, they often have to get rid of valuable plants and hardscape material.

North County coast a perfect canvas

Many of my gardener friends walk the local beaches for the perfect items to complete their rock and driftwood collections. One local gardener advised, “Walk the beach at low tide after a good storm, and the stash of rocks and drift-

wood are at their peak. The favorite local spots are Ponto Beach in Carlsbad and the Oceanside Pier.”

After collecting ocean rock, you can build a small stone wall by inserting the rock in the soil, or place in an existing garden as a home for rock garden plants.

In search of rocks and stone

If you enjoy travelling, many local states boast their own collection of rock and stone. Arizona, Utah and Northern California and have geographical areas that boast quartz, amethyst, turquoise and even fool’s gold.

Be certain when trav-

elling in public parks that rock-hunting is permitted. Start with the basics

When starting a new yard scape or rock garden, begin with just a small rock or shell collection and a small patch of soil. Check out the National Rock Garden Society, www.nargs. org for local tours and clubs which can give you lots of ideas for rock garden plants and herbs that are suitable for your new garden.

Spring cleaning: Don’t toss that ‘junk,’ it may be valuable!

It’s time to hit the garage, basement, attic and closets for that age-old task of spring cleaning!

Before hauling unwanted possessions to the curb, you may be surprised to learn they might be valuable -- especially if you have sports cards and memorabilia gathering dust.

With prices of sports cards rising in recent years, take time to determine if yours are valuable and how to best sell them.

“Older sports cards and memorabilia aren’t just highly collectible; they can be worth lots of money.

Recent sales of scarce vintage cards have topped anywhere from thousands of dollars to tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands.

And really rare cards can go higher,” says Al Crisafulli, Auction Director at Love of the Game Auctions, an internet sports auction house that helps families identify and sell valuable items.

Crisafulli has assisted people in selling such keepsakes as a grandparent’s autograph collection and an uncle’s childhood baseball cards, for tens of thousands of dollars.

In one life-changing event, he helped a family determine that a baseball bat that spent decades protecting their home was used by Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig — and Love of the Game Auctions sold it for almost half a million dollars.

Today, that bat could bring more than a million

dollars.

The key is understanding what makes old sports collectibles valuable. To help, Crisafulli is sharing some tips:

Older is Pricier? Maybe

Cards from the 1960s and earlier are collectible, and those from before the 1940s can be worth a lot of money, especially those depicting stars.

Do you have cards of Hall of Famers, such as Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner or Ty Cobb?

Even non-stars from the early days of a sport can be worth big bucks, especially if the cards have no creases and retain sharp corners and original gloss.

If you have very old cards from the 1880s through the 1930s, look for tobacco, gum and candy brands, such as Old Judge, Piedmont, Sweet Caporal, Goudey or American Caramel.

If you want to sell sports items for the most

3 ways to prep your home for bug season

By StatePoint

It can be tempting to think that bugs simply disappear in the cooler months.

The truth is that many bug species have evolved to survive all year long, sometimes hiding in the warm nooks and crannies in and around homes. Others go into a hibernation-like state.

To prep your home for bug season and outsmart pests, follow these 3 steps:

1. Tidy up: Household pests love snacking just as much as people do, but you don’t need to play host to them. After meals, wipe down tables, counters and other kitchen surfaces. Be sure to regularly sweep and vacuum crumbs, as well as mop up to eliminate sticky food residue. Keep a tightly-fitting lid on your garbage bin, and rinse cans and jars before recycling them.

2. Be ready: Even an immaculate home will face pest problems at some point. That’s why it is important to have tools on hand to catch a problem early, before it becomes a much bigger one.

money, consider a specialty auction, such as Love of the Game, which has the expertise to properly research sports ephemera

and maintains bidder lists of collectors specializing in sports. More information is available at loveofthegameauctions.com.

Postcards & Photographs

We all have keepsakes of vacation destinations, but most aren’t valuable. However, photographs and postcards depicting sports stars and ballparks can be significant.

Look for early “real photo” postcards from the 1900s through the 1940s, which are photographs printed on postcard backs.

As with sports cards, star power matters, so preserve those Babe Ruths as

opposed to images of your great grandma’s baby cousin once-removed.

And when it comes to photos, look for old markings on the back, such as photographer, publication and date stamps.

Memorabilia

Set aside old advertising posters depicting sports stars and food, tobacco or sporting goods brands.

Ads from magazines aren’t valuable, but those used as store displays and for other marketing purposes can be pricey.

Tin signs from the 1960 and earlier can be highly prized, but reproductions aren’t.

Your family’s sporting goods, such as balls, gloves and bats, can be valuable. Pre-1950s uniforms and catcher’s masks, helmets and other equipment are highly collected, especially when endorsed by star players.

Top condition brings the highest prices, but even used equipment can be valuable.

“The golden rule is the older the sports card or item, the more valuable it usually is. Pre-1975 pieces start to get interesting and are worth researching,” says Crisafulli.

Don’t just clean out your “junk” this spring, examine it closely to potentialy maximize its value.

Zevo’s Instant Action sprays target and shut down biological pathways found in insects, not in people or pets. Likewise, the brand’s traps use a UV and blue light system to attract and capture flying insects, and they have a discreet design that can serve as a bouncer at your home’s entry points.

It’s also smart to use these traps in potential problem areas, such as near trash cans and fruit bowls and near toilet bowls and drains.

3. Safeguard the yard: Defending your yard from pesky pests will not only improve the comfort of your home’s outdoor spaces, it will help prevent insects from finding their way indoors.

Be sure to eliminate standing water by properly tending to your lawn and by periodically clearing downspouts of debris. Any water feature in your garden should use running water. If you have a patio or deck, consider screening it in. If you don’t love the look of screened walls, installing ceiling fans can be an effective alternative.

Family business makes backyard homes a reality

When it comes to providing quality work and expertise, Crest Backyard Homes likes to keep it in the family.

As San Diego’s top accessory dwelling unit (ADU) builders, Vista-based Crest Backyard Homes specializes in installing backyard living quarters that are commonly used to house either multigenerational family members or to help a household gain some extra income and provide more local housing by renting out the additional space.

The team consists of experts with more than four decades of manufactured home experience and more than three decades of construction experience.

Though ADUs have been around since the

1980s, their popularity didn’t start to grow until 2017 when State regulations began to change, making ADUs a more appealing and affordable investment.

Crest Backyard Homes designed and installed its first manufactured home in 2002 in Leucadia under its own name as opposed to being the installing contractor for several dealers.

“We’ve been doing this for a long time,” said founder John Arendsen.

Now a licensed general contractor, manufactured home contractor, real estate broker, manufactured home dealer Tiny Home and Park model dealer and developer, Arendsen first started

his real estate and manufactured home contractor business, On The Level, in 1986, just a few years after he moved his family from Orange County to Vista in 1981.

The company expanded over the next decade. Then, Arendsen started and ran his next company, Crest Backyard Homes, in 1997. In 2017 arendsen and Tim Hipps joined forces and expanded the team to what it is today.

While Arendsen operates as a contractor and developer marketing, promoting and running the front end of the business, Hipps runs the back end as the dealer by working directly with clients on selecting the ideal floor plan, options and

upgrades for their property and budget. He also coordinates with the contractors on the site development and utility installation.

Arendsen and Hipps both born on August 8th are longtime friends and former friendly competitors, which is why Arendsen chose him to help on the production side of the ADU business.

Also on the tight-knit team is Lenska Bracknell, the lady in the field. She interfaces with our client from beginning to end. In many ways you might say she’s our best all around player, MVP so to speak. Lenska is not only a licensed real estate broker, analyst and investor she is also a licensed drone

and fixed wing pilot specializing in real estate photography, site evaluation and feasibility. But most importantly she’s the teams project manager.

Arendsen is also joined by his wife, Janis, also an industry expert, consultant and expert witness and who works with lenders, attorneys, engineers and myriad local building jurisdictions to help homeowners with permit processing and loan procurement.

Keeping the family close by, their daughter Janeene Arendsen Lovell works as operations manager of all their businesses and creative director. The younger Arendsen has been dedicated

to her family’s business since the age of 8 when she first began organizing its records and data.

“We have a really tightly wrapped team,” John Arendsen said.

The combined several decades of experience between the small but mighty team has earned them much praise from their past clientele.

Anna Hopkins, a satisfied CREST homeowner said working with the local North County-based ADU specialist helped them get answers and advice on ADUs during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, making things even more challenging. Still, Hopkins was thrilled with their level of expertise throughout the process and the final results.

“The Crest Backyard Homes team went above and beyond in all aspects of the project to execute our dream of adding an ADU in our backyard,” said Anna Hopkins.

4 tips for integrating nature into your interior design

StatePoint

This spring home improvement season, get inspired by the outdoors with biophilic design.

“Biophilic design – the concept of integrating nature into interior design – is not only gorgeous, it fosters a healthy living environment, promotes happiness and comfort, and reduces stress,” says Jennifer Kline, multimedia graphic artist at ProVia. “There are many ways to reap these wellness benefits while adding vitality to your living spaces.”

To connect to the natural world within your home, consider these ideas:

FOSTER TRANQUILITY

Taking a stroll through the forest can summon feelings of tranquility. Capture this inner peace at home from the moment you step inside with a fiberglass woodgrain entry door. Those from ProVia provide authentic-looking woodgrain textures, such as oak, cherry, mahogany, knotty alder and fir, and can accommodate various door glass enhancements. Engineered for energy efficiency, they’re also a sustainable choice, helping you protect the natural world as you embrace its splendor.

Other design choices, such as exposed rustic ceiling timbers, rich hardwood furniture, warm hardwood floors and vinyl woodgrain windows can help you carry the forest motif throughout the home, while imbuing interiors with richness and warmth.

LET LIGHT IN

“If you’re lacking natural light, it’s time to open those blinds and drapes and let the sunlight stream through your windows. It may also be time to consider a few enhancements that will help you enjoy more sunshine and observe your natural surroundings, even when you can’t be outdoors,” says Kline.

For kitchens and breakfast nooks, bathrooms and dens, consider vinyl garden windows, which invite more light into your space and include shelves ideal for housing indoor plants, such as fragrant herbs. Their three-dimensional design helps give rooms an airy, spacious feel.

Family rooms and bedrooms are great locations for vinyl picture windows, which let in large amounts of light while providing unobstructed views of outdoor scenery. Need inspiration?

Visit ProVia’s Window Photo Gallery at www.provia. com/windows.

To brighten your foyer, add an entry door with glass. Energy efficient sliding glass patio doors also let in sunlight, and give you the option to invite fresh air into your home or enjoy the melodies of singing birds on nice days.

Skylights can flood small or closed-off spaces such as walk-in closets or bathrooms with light and

give you views of blue skies.

LET IT GROW

To give your home a welcoming, fresh feel, add various houseplants and indulge in fresh-cut flowers.

A windowsill with small plants of varying shades of green can add texture, while larger potted plants near doorways help guests feel welcome. Fill dark, underutilized spaces with taller plants and place bright, lightly-scented garden flowers in such spots as the kitchen island and coffee tables. Use earthen or wood-carved vases for additional warmth.

stone veneer adds rugged texture, intriguing patterns and shapes, and a variety of hues straight from Earth’s natural color palette.

Whether you’re creating a focal point in a bedroom with an accent wall, adding character to your kitchen with a stone veneer backsplash, surrounding a tub with stone veneer for a spa-like bathroom, or highlighting your fireplace, different stone profiles and grout colors can help you customize the look. Experiment with combinations using ProVia’s visualizer tool found at provia.com/ stone/grout-visualizer.

“Incorporating biophilic elements into your interior design can transform your home into a warm respite from your busy life,” says Kline.

Award Winning ‘TREE DOCTOR’ uses special techniques for exceptional results

Since 1985, Russell Bowman has been delighting residents of San Diego County with his plant and tree expertise.

So, it’s no wonder Bowman Plant & 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 technique 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

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.”

This program reduces the households use of water overall by 30%.

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 Gardener 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.”

ful on our community,” the homeowner said.

Community meeting

During a Citizen Participation Plan meeting hosted on March 11 at the proposed site by Brian Ardolino, engineer for Solana Beach-based Pasco Laret Suiter and Associates, neighboring homeowners asked questions and shared concerns about the project. Most of the issues concerned drainage, traffic, parking and fire safety.

Ardolino told residents that a 17-lot project isn’t big enough to “move the needle” when considering traffic calculations.

“Usually, you need 500 units or more before you actually create an impact that needs to be mitigated,” Ardolino said.

Ardolino said that the development would also provide 1-for-1 parking for each unit, plus room in driveways and garages, giving the project plenty of onsite parking without forcing vehicles to park on neighboring streets.

One homeowner, living on nearby Blue Heron Avenue, expressed concerns that the development would create more drainage issues on the roads and surrounding properties during storms.

The resident said after heavy rains, excess stormwater floods the road and gutters, spilling out over the sidewalk.

Ardolino said the project wouldn’t drain more water onto the street than the existing condition.

“As part of any development, we have to analyze a 100-year storm event,” Ardolino said. “The rate of (water) flow leaving this site can’t exceed the rate leaving the site right now.”

Ardolino acknowledged there are some erosion concerns when it comes to drainage at the site.

the big community events.

“Those are beautiful events that I hope we have lots of promotion for so the community and region knows all we have to offer, which is really a gem for our city,” Martinez said.

Deputy Mayor Joe Garcia was also excited about the renewed relationship between the city and the center.

“This partnership between us has led to investing $100,000 of city taxpayers’ money back into the community to four beautiful programs that are free and open to everyone,” Garcia said.

Councilmember Mike Morasco maintained his opposition to how much the city pays the arts center for utilities in addition to the management fee.

Altogether, the city pays the arts center between $2 and $2.5 million annually for the fee as well as gas, electric and IT support.

“We should not be paying for the utilities, we should not be paying for IT support,” Morasco said. “We need to find a way to

“The slope off the back is highly erosive,” Ardolino said. “It’s always been a concern, and it’s still kind of an ongoing thing. Instead of any water being allowed to drain over the slope, we’re going to be using infiltration pits to make sure that the water doesn’t just run over the side as it does at Bella Azul Court because that’s an ongoing problem over there.”

Regarding fire safety, Ardolino said the risks could be mitigated by establishing 100-foot buffer zones, a fire protection wall and removing or thinning vegetation. Fire evacuation concerns linger for residents since the development only has one point of ingress and egress through “fully populated neighborhoods” in case of a wildfire.

When asked the developer’s name, Ardolino said it was “Mr. Brown,” an “old school developer” from East County San Diego, but no further information was provided.

Ardolino did not respond to multiple attempts to reach him for clarification regarding his statements during the CPP meeting.

“Our community at Bello Mar opposes any consideration of Density Bonus approval, waivers, concessions, etc., for this parcel beyond the currently allowed RR1 zoning, and likewise oppose any other measures that would allow the developer to build more than one housing unit per developable acre on the property,” according to a letter submitted to the city’s planning department by Peter Martenson, president of Bello Mar HOA. “We appreciate your consideration of this request and ask that you act to keep the current zoning application...to preserve the safety and security of our neighborhood and residents.”

The group has a website to sign a petition against the project at ProtectEncinitas. com.

contain this.”

While Councilmember Christian Garcia noted he had similar concerns as Morasco, he ultimately trusted the opinions of city staff and arts center representatives.

“I trust that you guys know what you’re doing,” he said.

Mayor Dane White said he was “100% on board” with the agreement and felt good about the center’s future under new CEO Gina Lopez.

The California Center for the Arts Foundation board recently selected Lopez as CEO in December. Lopez has nearly 20 years of experience leading both nonprofit and for-profit organizations.

Lopez most recently served as the executive director of the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City, where she helped the organization out of financial distress.

“I think we’re all aware of the financial difficulties of the city, and I think that’s in part why Ms. Lopez is here, to do exactly what she did in her previous setting,” White said. “If we’re as successful as that, then we’re all in good shape.”

In loving memory of Joan Marchese 1933 - 2023

Joan Marchese, a resident of Encinitas for over fifty years whose radiant smile lit up every room she walked into, died on St Patrick’s Day at the age of 89 at the apartment she shared with her husband of 70 years, Frank Marchese.

A native New Yorker, her journey to death was much like her life—filled with family, joy and love. The seven-day bedside vigil to send Joan off included live music, a pizza party, lots of laughs and tears and the endless kibitzing and swapping of stories only New Yorkers can do.

The family matriarch and oldest of 29 cousins, Joan was famous for her

Deena McCormack, 59, of, Encinitas, and most recently Punta Banda, Baja California, passed away November 24, 2022. There will be an in-person and online Celebration of Life on 1:00 PM on April 2, 2023 at the Chapel of Awareness, 560 Third Street in Encinitas CA 92024. Further information can be found on the calendar page at www.chapelofawareness. org.

family dinners where no one went hungry and all were welcome. Irish to the core, but married to an Italian, Joan dove into creating three course Italian feasts that included her famous antipasti, homemade lasagna and famous Christmas cookies.

The kitchen was her domain and loading the dishwasher was a gold medal event she took very seriously and won every time.

As her children grew and had children of their own, she hosted overnights with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, providing a dinner of homemade meatballs and spaghetti topped off with a big bowl of ice cream and episodes of North Woods Law, a murder mystery or old western.

Joan loved to dance. Put on a tune and she would start moving and singing along.

Even during her final years, she would grab Frank’s hand and they would spring to life and dance a lively Lindy or a jamming Jitterbug. Even after 70 years they loved to dance together and seem to hold each other up as they danced through

this life.

Joan was not only a devoted mother, grandmother and wife, she also was a published poet. Through her writing she sought to understand herself and would spend afternoons and evenings creating poems about the people closest to her. Her poetry can be found in Magee Parks Poetry Anthologies, Seacoast Poets Anthology and Changes –An Anthology of Modern Poetry.

Ever creative and talented, Joan was also a master seamstress and fiber artist. She could learn and teach any form of stitching and her house was filled with yarn baskets, crochet needles, embroidery hoops, looms, quilting frames, spools and skeins of yarn. She created clothing combining quilting, needle point and applique, and knit homemade sweaters from wool she spun herself.

Above all, Joan valued family, starting first and foremost with the love of her husband Frank who she knew since she was 17 years old. Their relationship was not without strife, but always had love. As Frank often shared “we would argue all day

and cuddle all night.” Joan and Frank created a wonderful legacy and close knit family that is connected and committed to each other every day.

Joan is predated in death by her son Mark, who passed away in 1995. She is survived most immediately by her husband, Frank; her son and his wife Joseph and Amber Marchese; daughter Leane Marchese; sister Claire and cousin Billy; and many grandchildren and great grandchildren Scott and Jesse Marchese and their daughters Sadie and Ryah, Joseph and Amber’s children Nathan Marchese, Chelsea, Todd Tschida and their son Logan Jack,and Leane’s son’s Roman Marchese-Culver and Graycin Marchese-Culver. Joan will be buried at sea surrounded by her loving family. We will miss her and think of her every day.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in honor of Joan Marchese to Friends of the Encinitas Library www.encinitaslibfriends. org, and please in the “additional info area” note that the donation is on honor of Joan Marchese.

There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.

Scams, Swindles, Fraud and Cons

SCAMS! They are everywhere we turn! Scammers use our mailboxes to our email inboxes to our phones with the unending unsolicited calls and even creepy, sometimes frightening texts from strange numbers. It’s not just those over-the-top stories of foreign royalty needing our help and rewarding us with riches. In this high-tech age of internet, email, mobile phones, fraudsters are using ever-more sophisticated methods to rip off their targets.

Scammers will not hesitate to use public information to lend a sense of legitimacy to their scams and ploys. They may drop names of family members or even suggest a loved one is sick or

injured to create urgency and catch you off guard with anything to sound believable.

Seniors are often targeted because scammers believe them to be less tech-savvy and more gullible. However, it’s not just seniors, it’s getting more and more difficult for everyone to determine what is legitimate and what is a con.

We’re warned at every turn to beware, be vigilant, be informed. And it’s important to do just that. In a world that is more and more connected by technology, where information is increasingly accessible to hackers and scammers, we are all susceptible. How do we keep up?

Our April Senior Living Education Series seminar

is titled Scams: Be On The Lookout for Senior Scams! Fraud has increased exponentially in recent years, and far too many older adults find themselves targets. This informational seminar is specifically designed to help us learn how to identify red flags, and to detect and avoid potential scams and swindles.

San Diego Deputy District Attorney, Scott Pirrello will discuss and guide us through common and emerging scam tactics and answer our questions. From creepy texts to “clickbait” to “catfishing”, learn how to recognize when you are being targeted and/or scammed. Bring a friend or two and let’s learn how to protect ourselves.

Build confidence with hands-on learning

At Snapology we believe children are meant to learn through play.

When children are engaged in interactive, hands-on activities, their creativity flourishes and they show an increased interest in learning and exploring concepts.

Our award-winning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Robotics Camps represent the best of what North County can offer when it comes to STEAM for ages 5-14.

This year, Snapology was selected as premier partner for S.T.E.A.M. camps at the Grauer School in Encinitas.

We are proud to offer over 50 STEM camps

designed to challenge kids’ minds to discover, explore, and invent. We emphasize social development through teamwork so friends can play, create, and explore together.

This year’s lineup includes new additions like Renewable Energy and Spike Prime Robotics, which will challenge more advanced kiddos in coding and autonomous robotics.

Some other popular camps include Moviemaking, Advanced Minecraft, Architecture, Brick Art, Geography, Combat Robots, Science of Superpowers, Drone Commander, Amusement Park Engineering and many more adventures where the

fun never sets!

Snapology also offers year-round programs in schools, community facilities, local businesses and even for pods at homes. So, check us out at SolanaBeach.Snapology.com.

Kids have so much fun in our programs that they don’t even realize they’re learning!

Shh, don't tell them it's educational!

with Marathon Kids, a nonprofit that encourages youngsters to run like a deer as often as they click a laptop’s mouse. The marriage of Carlsbad’s beauty, a fast track, a fitness boom and North County’s vibe of sun, surf and smiles has proved too alluring to be ignored. Its success has likely exceeded the hopes of even the most

optimistic of those involved in 1986.

Still, the Carlsbad 5K went 1,141 days between races because of the pandemic, before resuming last year. The finishing roars soon ricocheted down Carlsbad Village Drive again as everyone seemed eager to make up for, well, lost time.

Tipping Pint celebrates first year in Oceanside

On April 1, Tipping Pint Brewing Company in Oceanside will be celebrating its first year.

Located in Hangar 76, Tipping Pint Brewing shares space with Carruth Cellars Winery.

Co-owner and head brewer, Adam Jester sat down with me to discuss the first year, the upcoming celebration, and what’s next for Tipping Pint.

Cheers!: Adam, thanks for taking a moment to share your story, your expertise and your beer!

Jester: Welcome!

Cheers!: We’ve started off with a beer–what are we drinking here?

Jester: This is Thanks Honey Blonde Ale. It’s a blonde ale made with local honey and some honey malt. Some honey sweetness in there, but still nice and dry and drinkable.

Cheers!: On the maltier side of blonde ales versus the hoppy. And just a little bit of the honey, not too sweet.

Jester: Right, it’s honey-flavored, not honey-sweet.

Cheers!: Every brewer has a story to share. Tell us a little about your journey in beer.

Jester: I started homebrewing in the early 2000s. I have a cafe in Carlsbad [Vinaka] and I had a little free time, my stepdad and I started brewing together.

I was a beer nerd before that. And when we started home brewing I thought, Wow! You can make this stuff!

Cheers!: And then?

Jester: Then I went down the rabbit hole. I read every book I could get, read every website,

and listened to every podcast. I was making beer and going over to Pizza Port and talking to the brewers there for advice. And I told them to give me a call if they ever need any help.

Cheers!: And suddenly you were cleaning up brewing equipment. I’ve heard this one before...

Jester: Yes. But one day Mike Aubuchon [now of Heritage BBQ and Beer Company] called me up and said a couple of people called in sick and he needed a hand.

At the end of the day, he offered me a job and that’s how I started brew-

ing for Pizza Port. I became the assistant brewer and eventually the head brewer in Solana Beach.

Cheers!: And what about the Tipping Pint origin story?

sounds amazing. Cheers!: Where did the name Tipping Pint come from?

Jester: Coming up with a name is a lot harder than it seems. We even

Tipping Pint?

Cheers!: And the dog on your logo?

Jester: That’s our dog, Otis.

Cheers!: Namesake of the chocolate porter? Tell

Jester: Our goal here was to be for our community right here. Let’s make it special for our community.

My partner, Dominic Burns, has kids too and we wanted it to be a place for families. And it’s paying off, we have a lot of families here, especially on the weekends.

Cheers!: What has been a highlight from year one?

Jester: The ability to experiment with new beers is cool, but ultimately it’s meeting all the new people who come in.

Cheers!: The first-anniversary celebration?

Jester: A friend of mine from the cafe said he just bought a place in the valley with a winery and a brewery, and would I like to be a part of it? And I said, definitely. That

started with a different name, and before we opened we received a cease and desist. So, we started brainstorming...one friend mentioned Tipping Point, and I thought: what about

me about Otis, the chocolate porter.

Jester: It has a lot of chocolate in it. It’s roasty, and should remind you of a mocha without the milk. Roasted malts and 25 lbs of cocoa nibs. It finishes a little smoother and sweeter than our other beers.

Cheers!: What was the draw to this venue? And what do you hope patrons experience?

Jester: We set out to make a comfortable place that was family-friendly where you could relax and grab a beer or wine with the kids and/or the dog. I hope people feel that when they visit.

Cheers!: You have found the key to family and kid-friendly: space. And you have it here. There’s a part that feels like a tap room, winery space, quiet space, and extensive outdoor space.

Jester: April 1st. Come on out for woodfire pizza and live music by Trouble in the Wind!

Caymus comes to The Butcher Shop

with the 2020 vintage. The dense, dark fruit nose and flavor profile matched well with the richness of the carpaccio.

When I saw Caymus-Wagner Family Wines on Sal Ercolano’s 2023 Wine Series at The Butcher Shop, I immediately put it on my schedule as a must-attend.

There is a dedicated event space at The Butcher Shop's Copa Cabana room, where owners Ercolano and Gil Frank hold wine dinner events for 80-plus guests. Offset from the main dining rooms, there is always a special vibe and energy for wine events in the Copa Cabana room.

Ercolano and the team changed things with traypassed salmon tartar on toasted points along with Moroccan spiced lamb meatballs with tzatziki sauce in lieu of table-served appetizers.

The salmon and lamb appetizers were paired with Mer Soleil Reserve Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with fruit coming from the Santa Lucia Highlands area near Monterey.

Charlie Wagner, son of Chuck Wagner, is the winemaker and lead for Mer Soleil along with Red Schooner which now includes two “Red Wines of the World,” a malbec made from grapes grown in Argentina and a red blend made from grapes grown in Australia.

The relaxed start pro-

vided me a few minutes to catch up with Mary Gavin, Wagner Family Wines SoCal market manager.

Gavin had several items to share with me, the biggest being the new Wagner Family of Wine Caymus-Suisan winery located in the Suisun Valley American Viticultural Area, 30 minutes from Napa Valley, that opened in May.

“The undiscovered feel of Suisan Valley reminds Chuck (Wagner) of the old days of Napa Valley with small family mom-and-pop wineries,” Gavin said. “The Wagners are finding Suisun Valley perfect for growing durif (synonymous with petite sirah) along with zinfandel.”

Visitors booking wine tastings at Suisun Valley Winery get to enjoy Grand Durif and The Walking Fool Red Wine Blend (durif and zinfandel) wines along with three other Wagner wines. Chuck Wagner oversees winemaking for Grand Durif and daughter Jenny Wagner oversees winemaking for The Walking Fool.

The Walking Fool is named after a long-ago relative who was often seen traveling by foot – thus earning this affectionate moniker.

Dinner started off with California sturgeon caviar with dill and chive Yukon gold potato salad paired with Emmolo No. 5 Methode Traditionnelle Sparkling Wine.

This wine is also under Jenny’s purview. The non-vintage blend (60% chardonnay, 40% pinot noir) had soft bubbles and a creamy mouthfeel for sparkling wine, that complemented the caviar.

The second course was charred beef carpaccio topped with citrus-dressed arugula, extra virgin olive oil, and shaved Parmesan cheese served with non-vintage Red Schooner Voyage 10 Malbec. Instead of recognizing Red Schooner by the year, it is labeled with the voyage number.

Voyage 10 lines up

The main course was braised beef cheeks in a red wine reduction served with three varietals of roasted carrots and a carrot puree along with crispy fried onions. This was served with the 2020 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon — the 48th vintage of Caymus — with the upcoming 2022 vintage being the 50-year Golden Anniversary.

Chuck Wagner has masterminded all 48 vintages to date and is a consistent leader in the production of premium Napa Valley Cabernet.

Wagner creates diversification using fruit from Napa’s sub-appellations ranging from Coombsville to Calistoga to create layers of luscious aromas and flavor profiles including ripe berries with hints of cocoa and cassis. Caymus is ready to enjoy at release and ages beautifully over time.

Like the carpaccio, executive chef Brian Gist created a great combo with the beef cheek and Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon pairing.

The richness of the Caymus was a perfect companion for the equally decadent beef cheeks. Dinner concluded with a chocolate strawberry tart alongside The Walking Fool blend. Get more information at wagnerfamilyofwine.com.

There are 10 more wine dinners on Ercolano’s 2023 Wine Series, including Penfolds at 6 p.m. on May 5 at The Butcher Shop. The main course is Moroccan spiced lamb chops paired with Penfolds Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The cost is $105 per person. RSVP at butchershopsandiego.com.

Another wine dinner is Daou Family Estates at 6 p.m. on May 18 at West End. The main course is duck confit with mashed potatoes and garden vegetables paired with Daou’s flagship Soul of a Lion. The cost is $85 per person plus tax and gratuity. RSVP at 858-2595878.

Bohemian Alchemist

Where: Bohemian Alchemist, 1202 Camino Del Mar Suite B, Del Mar, CA 92014; Open: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Mondays, Closed Tuesdays;

What: Turkish Coffee with a water and sweet Turkish candy (2oz)

Price: $5.75-6.25

Author’s note: Turkish coffee is finely ground coffee brewed by boiling in a cezve or ibrik — a long-handled pot traditionally made of copper or brass. Each serving may be brewed with a small amount of sugar. Served with the grounds in a small coffee cup, often accompanied by a small candy on the side.

The sidewalks of Del Mar are alive with walkers, early lunchtime sandwich eaters, landscapers, and, on this morning, one man and his dog headed for Bohemian Alchemist. I am the man with his dog. I am excited to be having my first Turkish coffee.

Dog is less excited about having to wait outside. I loop his leash on a canine hitch near a line of seafoam green patio tables lined up under the cafe windows and against the white outer while I go inside to order.

Right off, I’m struck by the sense of design inside. There are plenty of little details — unique woodwork on the counter, statuesque lighting, and ornately designed wallpaper — that makes for a very cool vibe.

Clearly, someone thought through the visual journey a guest might make during a visit to the cafe.

And that person is likely Sarah Jaeger, owner and founder of Bohemian Alchemist. She also makes fine-looking pastries and and brews coffee using heated sand.

Traditional Turkish coffees are brewed over an open flame. The sand method is a modification in which the cezve filled with coffee grounds and water is placed into a heated pan of sand and brought to a boil.

The heated sand allows for great control over the pace of the boil. The barista can control the heat transfer by burying the cezve deeper or shallower in the sand. The slower brewing time

leads to increased aroma and bitterness in the coffee. By bringing the coffee to the edge of a boil, they can also impact the froth and thickness of the coffee. Even though I have the option of a sweetener, I don’t take it. I like a bitter coffee.

While I wait — a Turkish coffee takes a little bit longer to brew — I let my eyes wander. There is plenty of seating, including a solitary round table near a bookshelf holding titles like The Secret Therapy of Trees and The Opposite of Namaste.

Across the room, there are plenty of small tables for working on laptops, and a vibrant blue corner couch and floor cushions beckon loungers. Colored tapestries and glamorous lamps hang from the ceiling.

The row of windows stretching south from the entryway let in an abundance of natural light flow in.

The coffee comes served in a 2-ounce cup with a side of water and a Turkish sweet. The small cup makes me feel fancy. The treat is a cube of sweet pink lokum or Turkish Delight. I ask for and receive some advice on how I’m supposed to enjoy the coffee. Sip the water to cleanse the palate while the coffee cools and the grounds settle.

If you’d like a sweeter flavor, take a bite of the lokum before taking a sip of coffee. Take it slow.

Despite the small size, Turkish coffee is meant to be a slow experience best enjoyed over shared conversation or quiet meditation. I do my best. I quite enjoy the blending of the sweet candy and coffee flavors in my mouth.

I forget that the grinds are at the bottom — despite multiple warnings from the owner. The thick grinds wrap around the empty glass, a visual representation of all I’ve accomplished with this cup.

I can’t be certain how I feel about the coffee. The distinctive flavor of the candy is what lingers, but I do know that I like the experience of drinking Turkish coffee at Bohemian Alchemist.

Fun Fact: Tasseography is the telling of one’s fortune by reading the grounds at the bottom of a Turkish coffee cup after the coffee has been drunk.

BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned o may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying o all liens senior to the lien being auctioned o , 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 o ce 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.

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 the number shown below in BOLD, using the REF number assigned to this case on SHOWN ABOVE. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be re ected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust.

delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may a ect your rights as a creditor.
