The Oceanside City Council approved an agreement at the Feb. 23 meeting to RANCHO pay Schmidt Design Group $476,360 to design SFNEWS El Corazon’s Park Site 1 next to the new CaliFino Arena, which is still under construction and is set to be completed early next year. The arena’s developers have agreed to pay for a 630-space parking lot that the park will share with the arena and two multi-use fields as well. The city gained ownership of the vacant 465-acre El Corazon property, which was previously used as a sandpit, in 1994. Under the El Corazon Specific Plan, which was approved in 2009, El Corazon’s 216 acres of designated parkland would be divided into nine different park sites. Park Site 1 had 36 acres for development under that plan, however, due to the arena parking lot and the SoCal Sports Complex, the park site only has 19 acres currently available for development. “Many of the park sites are impacted by the SoCal Sports Complex, which is an interim use, so we will have

By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council voted on Feb. 22 to put a $21 million renovation of Monroe Street swimming pool as a ballot measure in November, a sudden change of plans that residents worry could indefinitely postpone much-needed upgrades to the aging aquatic center. The council approved several capital improvement projects, including improvements to the Monroe Street pool, as ballot measures in November, reversing an earlier decision to put the proposal to voters six months earlier on the June primary ballot. However, residents are worried the council’s decision further delays much-needed improvements to the 40-year-old aquatic center, arguing city leaders had previously agreed to place the $21 million pool renovation project on the June primary ballot. Councilman Peder Norby, who represents District 1 where the pool is located, agreed with residents' concerns and opposed the council's action, calling for the aquatics center to instead be placed on the summer ballot as originally planned. Norby, who was appointed to the council six months after the pool renovation plans were approved in January 2021, said there was no reason to delay the issue. “The previous action was to put it on the June ballot,” Norby said. “Now, we’re reversing course. I’m concerned there’s no time in terms of when this will be brought back to a future ballot. It sounds like to me it could be a long time.” Additionally, any ballot measure put up by the council must be approved by a simple majority of voters, according to Tina Ray, the city’s director of communication and engage-

ment. Ray said the council's current requests are for voters to allow the city to spend money it already has allotted for the projects. “The council is asking for authorization to spend the money, not to raise taxes or put out a bond for the money,” Ray said. The goal is to expand the pool at Monroe Street and to offer amenities similar to Alga Norte Aquatic Center. According to Carlsbad Parks and Recreation Director Kyle Lancaster, plans call for widening the pool to 33 meters, installing new shade structures, replacing tile and plaster and installing solar panels, among other upgrades. Since the ballot measures are capital improvement projects costing more than $1 million, Proposition H is triggered. Prop H requires voter approval of any capital improvement projects surpassing $1 million in general fund costs. The last Prop H vote was in 2016 when residents approved rebuilding Fire Station 2 in La Costa. The council has until August to approve its slate of capital improvement

projects for the measure to make the November ballot. The cost to place the pool on the June ballot is between $55,000 to $85,000, according to Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel. The council will return with a strategic planning workshop on March 16 to discuss the council’s goals. The Monroe Street Pool and other potential ballot measures will be discussed, according to City Manager Scott Chadwick. “It also gives us an opportunity to hear council’s plans for its strategic plan efforts,” Chadwick said. “Council is giving us a significant list. It also gives us an opportunity to hear what the revenue consultant brings back.”

Other ballot measures The city has put forward several other capital improvement projects, including a new fire station on Cannon Road west of Interstate 5, trenching the railroad tracks in Carlsbad Village, the College Boulevard extension behind Rancho Carlsbad, a new Public Works center, a new City Hall and Civic Center

and a park in the Robertson Ranch neighborhood. The city has been eyeing a new fire station in response to dropping response times and better access to the coast, according to previous council discussions. The city is looking at the current San Diego Gas & Electric operations

center as a potential site, which is adjacent to the decommissioned Encina Power Station. However, there is no current cost estimate for a new fire station, although the most recent comparison is Fire Station 2, which cost the city about $12 million. “There are other items

we want to put on the ballot that are over $1 million,” Mayor Matt Hall said. “I think the strategic process gives the community a chance to weigh in. If we try to put too many on, we might get a negative response.” Trenching has long been a priority for the council, having unanimous support for years, and the city expects to contribute to the total project cost, although the city’s amount depends on the availability of other funding sources. According to Ray, the April 2020 Carlsbad Village Railroad Trench Final Alternative Analysis Report shows the total cost is between $450 million to $465 million for the long trench. However, Ray said funds for trenching could come from a combination of federal, state and local agencies, such as the city and San Diego Association of Governments. Until a funding strategy is developed, it is unknown how much money the city would be asked to contribute, Ray added. Trenching is also part of SANDAG’s 2021 Regional Transportation Plan, which plans to invest bilTURN TO MONROE ON A7

We need lower energy bills

L

By Jim Desmond

ast week, I sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom and the California Public Utilities Commission to immediately implement measures to alleviate rising energy costs. The State of California is expected to have at least a $45.7 billion budget surplus in 2022. These are taxpayer dollars that should be used to lower the energy bills for all San Diegans. Read the letter below and I will keep you updated on the progress. Dear Gov. Newsom: As Supervisor of the Fifth District representing North San Diego County, I am writing to request that the State of California immediately implement measures to alleviate rising energy costs, providing relief to the ratepayers of San Diego. My office has been contacted by residents concerned with the sudden rise in energy costs and increases in utility rates. My constituents are concerned with their ability to pay for recent increased energy bills, especially seniors who are on fixed incomes. With already out of control housing costs, gasoline prices, and the cost of goods due to inflation, many San Diegans struggle now more than ever to survive under

the weight of these rising costs. Considering the recent rise in rates, the State of California should review costly energy regulations under the State’s control and provide temporary relief to ratepayers. Drivers of the recent rate increases include the exorbitant cost of natural gas, renewable energy infrastructure to meet State mandated targets, the growth of public benefit programs which are offset by other ratepayers, and the cost of wildfire mitigation measures. California is expected to have a $45.7 billion budget surplus in 2022. Part of that surplus should be used for wildfire mitigation measures and renewable infrastructure to meet state goals, relieving ratepayers from the cost burden, and lowering energy bills. With wildfires now a year-round threat in California, it is imperative that the region continue to invest in infrastructure that reduces the risk of wildfires. On the backs of local ratepayers, SDG&E has spent $3 billion in the last 10 years to strengthen community resiliency, harden electric grids, and underground powerlines. Investment in infrastructure to

reduce the risk of wildfires are ongoing. However, these costs are funded by local ratepayers, included in monthly energy bills. The State of California should relieve ratepayers by offsetting these projects with state budget-surplus dollars. The State should also look to offset costs of utility-constructed clean power projects. Again, these also fall on the backs of San Diegans in every SDG&E bill. With more people working from home and increased adoption of personal electric vehicles, reliance on energy will grow. To many working San Diegans, and those such as seniors on fixed incomes, the recent 24.6% jump in gas rates and 7.8% increase in electricity rates are more than they can afford…in an already expensive California. The State’s budget surplus comes from taxpayers, many of whom have suffered mightily from a pandemic, losing their job and seeing gas prices rise dramatically. Let’s give it back to the taxpayers by lowering their energy bills. I urge you to act now to lower energy bills for San Diegans. Jim Desmond represents the 5th District on the County Board of Supervisors.

Letters to the Editor Your article on the San Marcos teacher contract negotiations promotes myths about teacher pay that I think need to be made clear to your readers. As is common in such media reports, it was implied the zero percent increase offered by the district means teachers would receive no raise. In reality, teachers are under defined salary schedules that offer periodic raises, often annually. Usually that increase rate exceeds inflation. What the union is asking for is a “bonus” raise, on top of their normal annual increases. From the district’s own pay records, we see in 2020 the median total compensation of a full

time San Marcos teacher was $121,748. Far from being “the lowest in the county,” San Marcos teachers rank 17th out of 43 districts — in the top half. If that is not a “livable wage,” what is? Certainly inflation is up recently. However, if we look at the last decade, inflation has averaged 2.12% per year in the county. In that same time, San Marcos teacher median total compensation has gone up 8.06% per year. That’s almost four times higher. When did we hear the union president clamoring to give some of that back because it was too much? Seems like picking a single year is very much cherry

picking data. Perhaps the district’s “intransigence” is just welcome financial responsibility. A deficit of almost $26 million next year means layoff announcements now. Adding more cost would mean more layoffs, cutting from the education of our kids. Isn’t that a bit like taking candy from babies? Are the union leaders putting their own interests ahead of our kids’ education and their co-workers’ jobs planning on apologizing to parents and laid-off workers for considering their own wallet more important than their concerns? Todd Maddison Oceanside

t was a gutsy call when Gov. Gavin Newsom in late February suggested a gas tax holiday. That kind of move has been anathema for California governors since the 2003 recall of Democrat Gray Davis in favor of movie muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger made hay on the false assertion that Davis added a new gas tax that year, even though all he really did was restore a levy he previously put on pause for more than a year. It became Schwarzenegger’s key issue during that campaign, and it worked. No one remembered that Davis saved millions of people hundreds of dollars each over the preceding year. All they noticed was that they were paying more at the pump. Now comes Newsom, not exactly calling for a tax reduction. He recommends putting in abeyance indefinitely a 51-cent gas tax increase scheduled to take effect this summer. He has to know there will come a time when the state will need that money and either he or a subsequent governor will have to let the tax hike take hold. He knows this could lead to a second recall against him even if his likely reelection this fall goes smoothly. While Newsom acts unfazed about that possible outcome, Sacramento’s other two top leaders hesitate to give Californians this little bit of inflation relief. In a joint appearance before the Sacramento Press Club, both state Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and state Senate President Toni Atkins expressed misgivings. Both said they think not charging the new tax, mandated by a years-old law, could cost jobs by reducing funds for transit operations, road maintenance and highway construction. Said Rendon, “I think that’s something that could potentially jeopardize a tremendous amount of jobs…it could inhibit economic growth in certain sectors in this state.” He and Atkins showed most concern about effects on members of building trades unions, outfits among the leading backers of Democratic legislative campaigns. But there’s no reality to this worry, and they both know it. The approximately $500 million a oneyear gas tax holiday would cost can easily be made up by tapping California’s current huge budget surplus. Said Senate Republi-

california focus

tom elias

can leader Scott Wilk of Santa Clarita, “Democrats are tone deaf if they think people don’t need a break at the pump.” In fact, California gas prices in late February averaged $4.82, highest in the nation. In some places, posted prices climbed well over the $5 landmark. Wilk is correct. There’s no doubt the state can afford to give drivers — most Californians — a break when it is spending billions of dollars on the homeless, a highly visible but actually tiny portion of the populace. This is especially true now, when some legislators are actively considering a proposed new tax on the stuff owned by — not the incomes of — persons with assets valued at more than $50 million. Even if they are not producing income, say these ultra-liberal Democratic lawmakers, those assets further the passing on of generational wealth and passively but steadily add value. Assets involved include homes and stocks that pay no dividends, but consistently gain market value. The measure is sponsored by Assemblyman Alex Lee of San Jose, who aims at the 15,000-plus wealthiest folks in California. He would tax anyone with a net worth over $50 million at 1% and apply a $1.5% levy on those with more than $1 billion in net assets. “We want the obscenely ultra-rich to be paying their fair share,” Lee told a reporter. This, he says, would add about $22 billion to the revenues of a state that already sports a budget surplus almost double that amount, with legislators unsure what to do with all the money at their fingertips. The asset taxation plan, novel except in the property tax realm, would need voter approval to be effective even in the unlikely event legislators pass it. This is but one example of the kind of funding source the state could tap to replace any gas taxes it forgives. Which is just one more reason why it’s a good idea to give average people a break right now at a very visible place, the gas pump. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Mustangs win CIF championship  San Dieguito earns state playoff bid with title win By Bill Slane

SAN MARCOS — A hoop dream nearly six decades in the making was fulfilled Thursday night, Feb. 24, at San Marcos High School. Almost 57 years to the day since its last CIF title, the San Dieguito Academy boys basketball team outlasted Scripps Ranch 57-46 to win the CIF San Diego Section Division III championship. The top-seed Mustangs overcame a physical matchup in front of an enthusiastic crowd to proudly hoist the program’s long-coveted crystalline CIF trophy. Senior John Hapgood led the Mustangs with 25 points, helping the team pull away in the game’s final minutes to seal a victory over the No. 3-seed Falcons (21-11). “It just shows why (Hapgood’s) the player of the year. That guy can do everything,” Mustangs head coach Jason Stewart told The Coast News. “Just as big is his leadership. I

can’t say enough about that kid.” John, and his twin brother James Hapgood, who added eight points of his own Thursday night, took a winding path in their high school careers to get to San Dieguito Acad-

emy after starting their freshman year at La Jolla Country Day. But the path led the dynamic pair right where they wanted to go. “I was just out there playing the game I love and making sure our hard work

didn’t go to waste,” John said. “I was just putting it all out there on the floor and that’s all I could do. I couldn’t be happier and prouder of the guys.” San Dieguito Academy (20-7) also learned its storybook season and champion-

ship crown earned the team a spot in the CIF state tournament opening against Viewpoint High School. But regardless if they win or lose in the state tournament, Stewart thinks college coaches are missing out on John Hapgood

if they don’t see him as a scholarship player at the next level. “This guy is a diamond, he’s a diamond. And he’s hiding right now,” Stewart said. But Thursday night’s Division III San Diego Section final proved a formidable challenge for the Mustangs, who rallied from behind to take a 2522 lead over the Falcons at halftime. San Dieguito held off Scripps Ranch in the second half, only reaching a comfortable lead in the final stages of the game. Both teams were coming off physical matchups in their respective semifinal rounds earlier this week. In Tuesday’s semifinal game against Grossmont High School, the Mustangs never trailed but held off the Foothillers’ fourth-quarter rally to win 66-54 and advance to the final. For the title game, the Falcons appeared determined early to control the tempo against the Mustangs. “They executed their game plan very, very well and kept us right where they wanted us to be quite frankly,” Stewart said of TURN TO MUSTANGS ON A16

Encinitas explores law to curb auto part thefts

Solana Beach seeks volunteers for commissions

By Bill Slane

By Tigist Layne

SOLANA BEACH — The City of Solana Beach is seeking volunteers for the Climate Action Commission and the Parks & Recreation Commission. Commissions are responsible for advising the City Council on various issues on which the Council may wish to act and provide particular services to the community. The Climate Action Commission is seeking two resident volunteers to join seven other members for a total of nine; seven of which are to be appointed by the Council At-Large and two of which are councilmembers David Zito and Kristi Becker. “This commission assists in implementing the Climate Action Plan, including updating the city's Greenhouse Emissions Inventory; setting reduction targets; implementing mitigation measures and performing periodic monitoring, verification and evaluations,” according to the city. Two of the members already on the commission are scientific/environmental professionals, as required by the city. They can be residents or nonresidents of Solana Beach. Most recently, the Climate Action Commission hosted a virtual building electrification educational workshop for homes and businesses. Electrifying buildings is a strategy for greenhouse gas reduction to assist in meeting Climate Action Plan goals. The City Council adopted the city's first-ever Climate Action plan in July 2017. The Climate Action Plan includes an aggressive goal of achieving 100% renewable energy by 2035. The commission meets every 3rd Wednesday of each month. Applications are being accepted through April 5. The term for the position will expire in January 2023. The Parks & Recreation Commission is also seeking two volunteers whose terms will expire in January 2024. Applications for this commission are being accepted through March 15. Volunteers will join five other members to participate in reviewing matters regarding the city's parks and programs, as well as conducting certain city events, including fees and charges for participants, scheduling, etc. Each position is a two-year term. Meetings for the Parks & Recreation Commission are held on the second Thursday of each month. Commissions “act in an advisory capacity to the City Council and thus are referred to collectively as ‘advisory bodies.’ Advisory bodies may formulate recommendations and assist the City Council in addressing community concerns and needs,” the city’s website says.

NORTH CITY in San Marcos is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in the next 10 to 20 years. Developers are seeking several amendments to the project, including raising the allowable building height to 16 stories. Photo courtesy of Sea Breeze

North City changes requested  Sea Breeze seeking to raise unit height limits By Stephen Wyer

SAN MARCOS — Developers of the North City project in San Marcos are asking the city for permission to make a series of project adjustments, including significantly increasing the allowable height of buildings permitted on the development. At a public workshop held Monday, the project’s developers, Sea Breeze Properties, formally requested an amendment to the regulatory document adopted in 2009 with the city that laid out the parameters for development concerning standards such as building height, architectural design, building orientation, and street design. The North City project is 195 acres in size and is located south of state Route 78, north of Barham Drive and overlapping Twin Oaks Valley Road to the east and west. North City’s entitlements will include 3,400 residential units (including mixed-family residences, student housing and affordable housing), 450 hotel rooms, 1,100,000 square feet of office space, and 345,000 square feet of

retail. The proposed amendment would allow Sea Breeze properties to build structures on the site up to 16 stories in height, vastly exceeding the current vertical limit of eight stories currently allowed under the project. The expansion in height will permit developers to build a 12-story complex located at the intersection of North City Drive and Campus Way that will allow for significantly more mixed-family residences without taking up more space by building horizontally, according to Sea Breeze vice president Darren Levitt. The height expansion will also allow for more creative outdoor open spaces in the complex that wouldn’t be possible with a shorter structure, according to Levitt “Going vertical allows us to create a better ground plain environment — if we can use the specific entitlements in a vertical manner you can create outdoor public spaces where you can have community gatherings, farmers markets, etc…the height flexibility just would add a lot of character and benefits to the region long term,” Levitt said. However, the developer acknowledged some residents are vigorously

opposed to the new amendment, speaking out against the height expansion proposal at Monday’s workshop. One of those residents, Kirk Erickson, said that he and others in the community are concerned about how a taller structure could impact the unique residential character of the area. “People in San Marcos want a residential feel to this community,” Erickson said. “We don’t want to live in downtown San Diego or Mission Valley, we don’t want to have to live in the shadow of buildings — the notion of seeing a 16-story building takes away the residential feel and gives the area more of an urban feel.” But Levitt argued the expanded building height was necessary to accommodate more housing, including more units for lower-income families in a region already strapped for affordable housing. “The additional height issue is controversial only here in Southern California where we’re used to building like the status quo, just more suburban single-family developments, but ask anyone in this state and they’ll tell you that there’s a shortage of housing,” Levitt said. “San Marcos wants more

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas City Council last week began the process of drafting an ordinance similar to a law in neighboring Carlsbad to help crack down on citywide catalytic converter thefts. According to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, as of Nov. 2021, the department had received 461 reports of stolen catalytic converters citywide, part of a nationwide spike in theft of the costly automotive device. Catalytic converters, a key part of both hybrid-electric and gas-powered vehicles’ exhaust systems since 1975, help reduce emissions by taking dangerous pollutants — carbon monoxide, nitrogen gas, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons — and using catalysts to “convert” them into safer gases, such as carbon dioxide. During the pandemic, there was a significant spike in converter thefts due to the presence of rhodium, a precious metal that helps clean pollutants in the car’s exhaust system. In January, the Carlsbad City Council passed an ordinance making it illegal to possess a catalytic converter without proof of ownership. The ordinance was adopted in an effort to curb thefts and subsequent "fencing," or buying and reselling stolen devices. “We’ve seen the number of catalytic converters that are stolen in the county of San Diego going up,” Deputy Mayor Joe Mosca, who brought the item to the city council Wednesday night, said. “When they are stolen it’s

about a $2000 loss to the victim. And we’ve seen an increase in these crimes.” Aside from the rhodium found in the converters, both platinum and palladium can be found and sold at high prices. For example, ​​palladium is currently valued at $2,550 per ounce. Rhodium is an even more precious metal being valued as high as $18,850 per ounce. The Carlsbad ordinance was created in an effort to curb the number of thefts by making it easier for catalytic converter thieves to be charged with a crime. In most cases, there are no identifying marks on the device, making it difficult to return to a victim should a stolen converter be recovered. “What the ordinance does is it says regardless of whether or not there is a victim if there is a catalytic converter and you cannot prove that it was on your car or that you own it then it could be prosecuted by the city attorney’s office,” Mosca said. Mosca said the ordiTURN TO CATALYTIC ON A21

SDUHSD reaffirms new district map  Board avoids talks of Brown Act violations By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — Despite already voting on approval of their new district map, San Dieguito Union High School District voted two more times this week in a special meeting to ratify its decision which is now being challenged in the courts. The school district held a special meeting on Monday with two separate agenda items to “renew and ratify” the board’s previous decision to approve a new trustee area map following the 2020 census. The map, known as Scenario 8, has drawn widespread criticism from parents in the district who say it splits up elementary school districts, disenfranchises a large number of voters and violates California's Brown Act. Cory Briggs, the attorney representing two parents who have filed suit against San Dieguito in regards to the maps, sent a letter to the district which included those allegations. The letter states the board has not adequately noticed the discussion of district maps on the district website as required by the Brown Act. “Archives of the District’s website confirm that the agenda for your February 17 meeting was not posted in compliance with this requirement. As a result of your failure to post the agenda properly, you were expressly prohibited by statute from taking any action or even discussing any of the open-session or closed-session items that you acted on or discussed on February 17,” Briggs wrote. The agenda item summary stated the board was “to cure and correct any alleged Brown Act violations,” however there was no discussion of the allegations. Instead, the board heard only a brief summary from Associate Superintendent Tina Douglas, who did not clarify the allegations being made. The board did

not hear from legal counsel in the public meeting. The board heard from 20 members of the public over the two agenda items, the majority of whom were opposed to the new map. Trustee Melisse Mossy, one of the three trustees who have been supportive of the map and has voted in favor of it at every opportunity, said she was saddened that there was so much conflict over the process. “I regret that so many

people are upset about this map. I know that there are a large number of people in both camps and I wish that we could make everyone happy,” Mossy said. “We really did try our best.” Much of the discussion of the maps were done in closed session and the district’s legal representative in the process was never allowed to give their opinion on whether the new map was legal or extended beyond the reach of what

SDA enrollment caps lifted By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — San Dieguito Academy has become more crowded in recent years and due to that the San Dieguito Union High School District decided to implement a lottery for the 2022-2023 enrollment. The district instituted a cap of 428 students for incoming freshmen and following the lottery there was a total of 63 incoming freshmen who were put onto a waitlist. Including new students at other grade levels there were 135 students in total who were placed on the waitlist following the lottery, according to the district. However, in a change of course, the school board voted Monday night to lift all caps to allow for any student in the district who wishes to attend SDA to go to school there next year. With the caps, the enrollment at SDA was expected to be 2,113 students which is four more than the current enrollment level. That number is now expected to be higher for the next school year including the students on the waitlist. “If every single one of those students enrolled and showed up on the very first day of school we would be at 2,246 which is 137 more than where we currently sit today. So just to put it into perspective when you look at 137 students that’s about five extra teachers that we would be hiring for SDA,” Deputy Superintendent Mark

2021 for the College Boulevard extension, along with approving a city-led financing program in May 2021. Early estimates tab the project to run at least $30 million and would connect the 1.5-mile road from Sunny Creek to Cannon roads just east of Rancho Carlsbad and near Sage Creek High School. Lancaster also listed two parks as potential projects — Robertson Ranch and Veterans — although Ray said those plans may not require voter approval since money for park construction is collected from developer fees. According to Ray, non-general fund money is available for the parks, but the planning process has not started so it remains

Miller said. However, the district normally sees an 8% attrition rate, or rate of students who initially enroll to SDA and decide to attend a different high school. Using that figure, the district says it would expect to see around 62 extra students at San Dieguito. Trustee Katrina Young, who expressed concern over the overcrowding of the school, was the only vote against the change, with Trustee Julie Bronstein absent from the Monday night special meeting. “I do fear that we will soon be at a tipping point. I’ve been told that the entire campus, especially the internal hallways, becomes what is often described as a super highway during passing periods,” Young said. Trustee Michael Allman said the district needs to do a better job of pushing some students who are on the margins between attending SDA and La Costa Canyon to attend the latter. Superintendent Cheryl James-War pointed to some of the programs that are available at LCC but not available at San Dieguito. “One of the things we can do is build that band program because that’s very unique, it only happens at LCC. We also have rugby at LCC, I don’t believe we have rugby at SDA. Rugby is an up and coming sport,” JamesWard said.

unclear if those funds will be needed. The upgrades for the Public Works center would incorporate technology and other workplace amenities, according to Lancaster. Finally, the council has prioritized a new City Hall and Civic Center for the past several years. The new City Hall, according to previous reports, is to provide a modern workplace for staffers, consolidate departments spread across the city, and deliver a Civic Center for recreational use for residents. Ray said the city is not planning on using general fund dollars for the Public Works operations center, a new City Hall or Civic Center.

school districts are meant to do following the federal decennial census. Trustee Katrina Young, who is part of the minority that has expressed concern over both the chosen map and the selection process, continued to express those same beliefs Monday night. “I just want to go on public record to say that I still have serious concerns with the process and the map itself," Young said. “My vote will remain the same as it has been throughout this whole process.” The lawsuit was meant to see its first hearing Wednesday morning but it was postponed to March 8 so that lawyers on both sides can ascertain if the new map would have any effect on the June primary elections.

SDUHSD to enforce mask mandate until March 11 end date By Bill Slane

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District considered changing how it enforces the statewide mask mandate, which is set to expire March 11, but the school board was unable to approve a new policy. Trustee Michael Allman presented a resolution which would change the current enforcement policy to allow for students who do not comply with the mandate to remain in the classroom without a mask. According to Allman, his resolution was not meant to ignore the mandate but instead simply change how it is enforced. The current SDUHSD enforcement policy calls for students who are not wearing masks in the classroom to be offered a mask and if they refuse are removed from the classroom and sent to the front office where next steps will be discussed with the student’s parents. According to the full policy, further refusal to wear a mask will result in the student’s removal from campus. As of now, students in SDUHSD will continue to be required to wear masks until the mandate is lifted after March 11.

iff’s Department data was acts related to illegal narcotics use/possession/ sale. The Escondido Police Department has been beset in both 2020 and 2021 by a steady rise in crimes related to drugs, especially methamphetamine and fentanyl, according to Lt. Bode Barreth, the department's public information officer. “We’ve been working a lot these last couple of years on street-level drug use, working on those types of enforcements and putting resources towards that specific issue,” Barreth said. “With drug-related crime, it’s hard to track — there’s a noticeable drug component to be sure in Escondido that we’ve been actually addressing, especially in the city’s motel corridor area.” M e t h a mp h e t a m i n e and fentanyl overdoses have also risen significantly in the past two years, according to Barreth. In addition to ongoing issues with narcotics usage, the lieutenant said that the Police Department saw a steep climb in catalytic convert thefts from vehicles during 2021. “One of the main things that came up this year was a rise in catalytic converter thefts, and we’re working with the District Attorney’s Office and our regional task force partners to combat this,” Barreth said. Converter thefts are on the rise not only in Escondido but across North County and statewide, as the market value of the converters has risen to around $200.

In addition, the part is relatively easy to remove, making it a juicy target for thieves, Barreth added. Gang-related crimes also made an unfortunate reappearance last year, as an apparent truce between gangs during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to have evaporated. “We have seen some activity picking back up with these gangs… with robberies and burglaries going up, it lends some value to that evidence we’re seeing with the gang activity,” Barreth said. While some of the discrepancies between 2020 and 2021 are more attributable to expected annual fluctuations in crime data, Barreth said some of the data shifts are undeniably impacted by the pressure of the pandemic on the criminal justice system. During much of 2020, county courts were largely closed, and jails had certain limits on how many inmates they could house due to concerns about the coronavirus. Police were also restricted more than usual in the offenses that they could book suspects for — for instance, an individual caught in the possession of narcotics was no longer automatically taken to jail, but instead issued a citation, Barreth said. Combined with other factors such as criminal justice reforms at the state level, the lieutenant said that Escondido saw a considerable increase in recidivism — suspects reoffending repeatedly — during 2020 as compared to 2021, when many of these pandemic-era measures were eased.

housing but where do we build? There’s no room to keep going further and further out to build the homes that we need in this community. “This is the right place for that density to exist… we’re asking just to use the entitlements granted in 2009 to build a better way forward for the future… how do we use these entitlements to create the most sustainable, environmentally friendly way? Building vertically is a lot more green than building horizontally.” The proposed project amendment would also remove the future construction of two planned bridges that were included in the initial project design. One of those bridges was supposed to be a pedestrian bridge running west of Twin Oaks Valley Road to the area south of Barham Drive over Discovery Street. The other bridge was going to be a flyover structure running over SR 78 connecting north to Johnston Way. Levitt said the fly-over bridge will no longer be necessary since the amount of traffic generated by the North City development will be significantly less than originally predicted by models in 2009. Those models were based on the assumption that a much larger proportion of the acreage on the development would be dedicated towards retail, an assumption that changed over time as more and more retail became based on online shopping instead of foot traffic at big box stores, Levitt said. As a result, Sea Breeze Properties is now asking for just 345,000 square ft. of retail space in North City —about a third of what was originally requested in 2009. Much of that space is now being reconfigured to-

MARCH 4, 2022 wards residential housing and commercial space, Levitt said. However, the removal of the proposed bridges has some residents concerned about how developers will accommodate for the inevitable increase in traffic in the community that will come as more housing units are built. “There’s nothing put into the design development now to mitigate that increase in traffic…you’re bringing in at least 3400 new vehicles… those housing units are going to have such an impact on traffic going through the Twin Oaks street and now there’s no additional bridge to allow people to access the 78,” Erickson said. “By building housing units but to not do anything to lessen the impact in my mind is ludicrous.” Levitt acknowledged that some of the residents had expressed concerns over potential traffic impacts. However, he expressed that even with the removal of the bridge over SR 78, the amount of traffic generated by the project was still almost 50% less than the previous models predicted for the development’s original design, as most of the traffic was going to be driven by retail space that will no longer be utilized. Levitt said Sea Breeze Properties has been working closely with engineers from the city and CalTrans to ensure that Twin Oaks Valley Road can accommodate the additional influx of vehicles that will stem from the project’s completion. “We’re at a pretty significant reduction in traffic from where we were in 2009…both our engineers and the city’s engineers have confirmed that building this bridge would make no sense…traffic generally speaking is a science, and we’re not skirting around our responsibilities with this project,” Levitt said.

San Marcos girls claim 1st CIF title By Stephen Wyer

SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos High School varsity girls soccer team entered its rematch Thursday night against Point Loma one win away from the CIF SoCal Division 1 championship game this weekend. But win or lose, Knights coach Daniel McKell has said this is the most successful team he’s had in his seven seasons coaching the team. (Thursday’s semifinal game was played after this edition of The Coast News went to press.) On Feb. 25, San Marcos (17-5-3) defeated Point Loma in a shootout to win the CIF San Diego Section Open Division championship for the first time in team history. After losing 14 players from the previous season, including 12 seniors, McKell said the coaching staff initially viewed this season as a rebuilding

year, making the team’s success this season all the more impressive. “This year we deemed as a rebuilding year, but it turned out to be much more than that,” McKell said. Two weeks earlier, San Marcos notched a 2-0 victory over the Westview Wolverines — a team the Knights had lost to earlier in the season — to make the Open Division championship match. Leading the Knights’ offense is seniors and team captains Madison Paolini and Taylor Rzewuski, and junior Gabrielle Prych, who has been the team’s leading scorer this season. The team has also received an unexpected boost from several freshman players, including Paolini’s younger sister, Ava, who has earned a starting spot as a center back on the varsity this year.

Scripps Memorial La Jolla now Level 1 trauma center By City News Service

REGION — Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla was verified as a Level 1 trauma center, the highest designation awarded by the American College of Surgeons to indicate the highest range of injury care available to patients, it was announced Feb. 24. Scripps Memorial La Jolla joins two other Level 1 adult trauma centers in San Diego County — Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego and UC San Diego Medical Center.

“Several years ago, Scripps made a commitment to elevate this trauma center to the highest level possible while significantly increasing the amount of academic medical education,” Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder said in a statement. “Physician medical education has long been a core part of our health care mission, and now we offer trauma center physician training in addition to trauma research at two of our hospitals, Scripps Mercy

Hospital San Diego and now Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla — the only health system in San Diego County with two Level 1 trauma centers.” Contributing to the verification was the hospital's development of a collaborative research program, establishment of an academic training program for surgical residents from the Naval Medical Center San Diego and expansion of education programs for other healthcare providers. “Level 1 verification

for the trauma center at Scripps La Jolla will benefit all of the patients we treat each year, whether they suffer a traumatic brain injury, spinal injury, broken bones or a gunshot wound,” said Dr. Walter Biffl, Scripps La Jolla trauma medical director. “While we still provide the entire spectrum of trauma care, the addition of trauma research and resident training has ensured that all of our trauma team members stay focused on the latest developments in trauma care.

“Our research studies are based on the patients and injuries seen in our community, improving their care locally and sharing our findings with trauma providers worldwide,'' he said. “We are committed to keeping Scripps La Jolla at the forefront of trauma care for years to come. At the same time, our community education efforts are helping people prevent traumatic injuries by avoiding things like falls, cycling accidents and car crashes.” Surveyors from the

ACS who evaluated the hospital pinpointed strengths including: “innovative clinical care guidelines, rapid and high-quality care of the most critical trauma patients and outstanding collaboration with prehospital EMS providers and the San Diego County trauma system,” according to the hospital. The surveyors noted that the center had no adult patient transfers to other facilities over the past year because all the needed care was available on site.

Spring into better eating habits healthy living

dr. kern brar, m.d.

I

was asked by a patient to give them a list of spring cleaning recommendations and I feel like some of these may be helpful for those of us trying to make healthier decisions in 2022. 1. The single most important thing is removing high fructose corn syrup from your diet, so go through your pantry and fridge and look at the label of everything you put in your mouth. 2. Throw away foods that are high in fat and sugar, usually cookies and snacks we may reach for in times of stress for indulgence. Some of my patients also use various high protein, low sugar options but I urge you to check the labels. 3. Get rid of the extra calories in sugary drinks

and sodas including diet sodas which usually just substitute a synthetic sugar like aspartame or sucralose. I recommend replacing these with a soda water machine that lets you make carbonated water without any additional calories. 4. Move high calorie foods like nuts and cookies to the top of the pantry so you have to make a whole hearted effort to get to them. You may not want to throw away a few things that you plan to indulge in once you return to your healthy weight. In terms of things to buy, I recommend shopping on the outside of most grocery stores to get fresh fruits/vegetables and meats, especially fish. Things that are usually boxed have unneeded chemicals including extra salt, sugar and fats that most of us simply do not need. Cutting out these chemicals that help preserve foods will definitely improve your energy levels and improve your overall well-being. I recommend farm to

table produce to support local growers, and we have quite a few collectives in the region. Some of the supermarket produce may have traveled many miles to get here, so make sure all produce is thoroughly washed to reduce the risk of food-borne illnesses. The goal in effective long term weight loss is to change your habits and behaviors to enjoy high fiber low calorie density foods instead of high calorie, low fiber foods. I often tell my patients to stay away from things that bodybuilders use to gain weight. Peanut butter, egg yolks, dried fruits and nuts seem to be common hurdles for some of my patients on the weight loss journey.

he American Cancer Society and Colorectal Cancer Alliance estimate that more than 150,000 people of all ages in the U.S. will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2022. This disease is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of death in men and women combined. Both organizations note that the rate of new cases continues to decline, thanks to healthier lifestyles and screenings. “The importance of getting screened cannot be emphasized enough as some patients may not have obvious symptoms,” said Kristen Blaker, MD, FASCRS, FACS, a colorectal surgeon at Coastal Surgeons, which is affiliated with Tri-City Medical Center. “There are several athome, stool-based screening tests available for people who may not want to do a colonoscopy. These are a good first step, but a colonoscopy is considered the ‘gold-standard’ as it provides the most definitive results and can identify polyps before they turn cancerous.” Other virtual screenings include computed tomography (CT) colonography and flexible sigmoidoscopy (FSIG), both recommended every five years. Stool-based tests, including the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) and guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (gFOBT), are provided by a doctor and need to be completed annually. FIT DNA kits, such as Cologuard, which is the only one approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are shipped to people’s home by the company and must then be sent back for testing.

screening is now recommended for people at average risk starting at the age of 45, as the incidence rate is rising in younger adults, and it should be repeated every 10 years until the age of 75. For those with a personal or family history of the disease and polyps, or have inflammatory bowel disease, screening is recommended before age 45. “Approximately 20% to 30% of colorectal cancer cases are associated with a family history of colon polyps,” said Dr. Blaker. “About three to five percent of those are actually associated with an identifiable colorectal family cancer syndrome, meaning there is an inherited gene mutation that is passed down in each generation. In these cases, genetic testing and counseling should be considered.” Aaron Byzak, Chief External Affairs Officer for Tri-City Medical Center, started getting screened for colorectal cancer at age 35. “My mother passed away at 55 years of age from colorectal cancer,” said Byzak. “This disease has taken the lives of more than a half dozen of my family members. My siblings and I get screened regularly because if caught early, colorectal cancer can be prevented or treated with surgical intervention.” Once cancer is identified from a biopsy done during a colonoscopy, an oncologist will “stage” the colorectal cancer based on the size of the tumor, and if it

has spread to lymph nodes or metastasized. Stages range from 0 to IV depending upon how far the cancer has spread inside and/or outside of the colon. “Most colorectal cancers are treated with surgery and those in the higher stages may require chemotherapy,” said Dr. Blaker. “Early-stage cancers and polyps can be removed during a colonoscopy, whereas a colectomy is needed to remove all or parts of the colon for later stage cancers. Once the tumor has been removed, the oncologist can test it genetically and tailor a patient’s chemotherapy accordingly, as well as determine targeted drug therapy.” “At Tri-City, we perform robotic-assisted colorectal surgery using the da Vinci® Xi surgical system,” added Dr. Blaker. “This minimally invasive approach means smaller incisions resulting in better outcomes, reduced hospital stay and quicker recovery. Through the hospital’s Perioperative Surgical Home, we can provide enhanced recovery to our patients.” Tri-City is the only hospital in San Diego County with a Perioperative Surgical Home to care for patients scheduled to have elective colorectal surgery. This is a multi-disciplinary, physician led team using evidence-based practices to care for the patient from the decision to have surgery and beyond discharge. This approach focuses the team’s attention to maximize a patient’s quick recovery. Screening for colorectal cancer saves lives.

Spring forward by cleansing your soul intentional living

n Spring, we can find ourselves motivated for organization, cleansing, and change. As a part of our seasonal shift, in moving from shorter to longer days, we are given the gift of more daylight. What do we do with this gift, well Spring Clean of course. There’s something about a longer day that helps motivate us to clear out the old and prioritize what we find useful and needed. In the same way, we clean out our material items, so too should we give time to consider all the excess and unintentional consumption we accumulate emotionally, mentally, nutritionally, physically, and relationally throughout the year. And so we must ask ourselves, is there a meaningful purpose behind this accumulation? Have we considered how our consumption impacts our lives on a daily and the potential residue it can leave be-

we shower ourselves with greater awareness of the impacts of our consumption. One of the easiest places to start is in our own homes. The place we ought to find peace, relaxation, and comfort, is the place we tend to overconsume the most. Pause and take some purposeful time to look around your home. Take notice of all the areas in which consumption is excessive. Start with tangibles such as material items. An easy and resourceful way of doing this is to categorize your home items. One category is marked for “keep”, one is marked for “not sure”, and one is marked “remove”. Gather

two bins or bags for items that you consider “not sure” and “remove”. Start with a closest, and move throughout your home, intentionally and honestly removing items, including food, that no longer serve a healthy purpose for you. It is not without consideration that this act of cleansing can be challenging, testing our values and priorities, and bringing clarity to what holds the most meaning. Sometimes it’s important to have support in this process. Share the experience with family or friends, or seek professional supports to guide your journey. As the sun warms you up this spring, think about how you can create more forward momentum for yourself. What gives you energy and what is valuable to you? Creating more space by getting rid of what you do not need or becoming clear on what it is you do need, can create the motivation necessary for you to be successful with your intentions. NTENTION Tips For Cleansing Your Soul: 1. Make a list of everything you consume daily. 2. Ask yourself with truth, are these needed or do I need to make some changes? 3. Declutter by eliminating what is not needed to create space. 4. Getting stuck? Ask an expert.

HERB OF THE MONTH

Osha (Lingusticum Porteri)

H

ave you ever watched a bear emerge from hibernation? Though we have plenty of bears here in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico, I’ve only read stories. They’ve been recorded digging up the osha plant and then rubbing the roots over their coats just after waking up from their winter slumber. Lingusticum Porteri, also known as bear root, wild parsnip, Porter´s Lovage, or wild celery is most commonly known as osha in the herb world. In fact, osha means bear in a local Native American language. This extraordinary plant is a potent antioxidant proven to reduce inflammatory markers in recent studies. For generations Curanderos and Native healers have used osha for its antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic properties. It has also been shown to increase oxytocin, the happiness hormone produced

by the hypothalamus. Bear hug anyone? Osha is a member of the carrot and parsley family. The flowering plant can grow up to 7 feet high in moist rich mountain soil. Osha is easily confused with poison hemlock in appearance, but it’s odor is different and carries an extremely strong celery scent. Due to over harvesting for many years, ethical wildcrafting is necessary to preserve this important gift from mother nature, as it is now considered endangered. Not everyone has an ethnobotany professor as a neighbor, so it's best to buy osha from a reputable organic source such as an online apothecary. It can easily be decocted (made in to a tea), infused into a tincture, or added to a healing salve. As with all healing herbs and supplements, it is important to discuss using osha with your doctor, especially if you or your pet are pregnant or nursing.

Magnesium & common usages

O

ne of my favorite supplements is magnesium, I use it with my patients for many common everyday health problems, and I have to say it works like a charm. I use it for with my female patients who are menstruating, it helps them with their menstrual cramps, and it helps them with their hormonal induced headaches. I use it with the patients that need to regulate their bowel movements, and are nutrient deficient, I use it with my cardiovascular patients, and with those that suffer from chronic fatigue. I use it with my patients that suffer from mild neuropsychological symptoms such as mild depression, general anxiety, and restless leg syndrome. There are different types of magnesium, I will focus on the most clinically relevant types. Magnesium glycinate, magnesium citrate, magnesium oxide, magnesium malate, magnesium sulfate. Obviously, these are general guidance, and always remember to check with your healthcare provider. The different molecular structure gives magnesium its name. Through school, research, and treating patients I have come to learn which are the best for certain conditions and which way they are best absorbed by the body. MAGNESIUM OXIDE • Antacid • Poorly absorbed when compared to other types. MAGNESIUM CITRATE • Hypertension • Constipation MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE • Constipation • Menstrual cramps MAGNESIUM MALATE • Chronic fatigue MAGNESIUM SULFATE • Absorbed well through the skin. • What we find in Epson Salt. • Relieves menstrual cramps when applied topically and intravenously.

sadi jimenez, n.d. • Relieves musculoskeletal pains and aches, especially those cause by over exertion of physical activity. Sometimes magnesium is warranted for multiple conditions, and in this case, I tend to use a blend of citrate, glycinate, and malate. I usually recommend a loading dose (a high amount for a short amount of time), and a maintenance dose (an amount that tends to be lower, but longer in duration). Patients with cardiac arrythmias should consult their doctors before starting any type of mineral regimen. However, magnesium has also shown to decrease cardiovascular disease. In this instance it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional. Certain populations have lower magnesium levels, the elderly, diabetics, IBD, IBS, food allergies, alcoholism, and a poor microbial diversity, might warrant an ongoing treatment with magnesium. It is important to remember, that we can absorb between 30-40% of our dietary intake, but cer-

tain factors can decrease how much availability of the magnesium the body has. Things like our soil. It is worthy of mention that recent studies show that our soils through centuries of cultivation have 28% less magnesium. Processed food, dietary aluminum, a low protein intake < 30g/diet, high phosphorus to magnesium ration, very high calcium intake, alcohol, soft drinks and coffee, and some drugs such as diuretics can also lower our absorption rates. Keep in mind that some factors can increase available magnesium that are bodies can use such as fermentable fiber, vitamin D, vitamin B6, and hard magnesium-rich water.

he gums and the mucosal lining of the mouth are exposed to the outside world and susceptible to microbial growth and infections. If you don’t get cleanings done on a regular basis, then these microbes make a home around your teeth and under your gums, creating constant inflammation. They can also gain access to the rest of your body, because bleeding or ‘leaky’ gums can give aggressive microbes access to your bloodstream. Why This is Important. With any infection, including Covid 19, the goal is to maintain a healthy immune system and to lower systemic inflammation. If your body is fighting other bacteria and infections on different fronts, including in your mouth and gut, then your immune system is already overtaxed. It takes a lot of energy for your body to fight infections 24/7, which is what happens with gum disease. So it's important to support gum and tooth health and keep your gums from getting red and inflamed or allowing them to bleed. Following are the most important things you can do at home to keep your mouth healthy: • USE BAKING SODA The easiest way to use baking soda is once a day pick some up with a wet toothbrush and massage it along your gum line. Don’t be too aggressive as it is abrasive. I recommend that you do this after you brush your teeth as you have always done. Then spit out the excess. You can also make a suspension with baking soda and 3%hydrogen peroxide bought at the drugstore. First dilute the hydrogen peroxide by 50%, then add the baking soda to form a loose slurry. Dip a tool such as the Doctor’s Brushpick or Soft Picks by GUM into the slurry and use it to massage the gums in between the

So some cases of amoeba need even more aggressive management, requiring a solution of bleach so diluted that it becomes a homeopathic. pH Paper – Another excellent, simple practice is to use pH paper to test whether your mouth is alkaline or acidic. Simply tear off a small strip, wet it on your tongue and wait a few seconds for the color to change. There is a handy color chart which tells you what your pH level is. Ideally you want a 7.0 pH for your saliva. 5.5 is too acidic. 8 or above is too alkaline. If it‘s too acidic, it can be because of stress or a diet too high in sugar or acidic foods and beverages. These include coffee, lemons, carbonated drinks and vinegar. Over my 35 years of practice, I have seen these approaches work!

A fate worse than death Homeless in North County: Joseph’s Story

By Stephen Wyer

OCEANSIDE — She’d expected the phone call for months, even years now, steeling herself for it, prepared for it as best a mother could. She anticipated the grief, pain, and the waves of anguish that would follow. But when Rebecca Reinig finally got the phone call on October 6, 2021, that her youngest son, 30-yearold Joseph Reinig, had been found dead in a cluster of bushes near a hillside in Oceanside, she admits she was surprised by something else that she felt after hearing the news — relief. Rebecca had feared Joseph's schizoaffective disorder — a brain disease that drove him to the streets and kept him from seeking help, that separated him from his family, and kept him living in constant states of delusion, paranoia and occa-

sionally rage — would one day drive him to commit murder during one of his psychotic states. “I’m honestly so grateful that he didn’t kill someone in some psychotic rage, instead of him dying,” she said. Rebecca also expressed that she felt relief that Joseph was at peace and no longer living in misery on the city streets. “We miss him so much but he’s no longer in a living hell, and he lived in a living hell," Rebecca said. "It’s devastating to think that death really is the best outcome for someone like him, that living on the streets is a fate worse than death — and when I say worse, I say worse with an underline.”

Loving and wonderful When Joseph was a young boy, Rebecca recalls how he would walk down to a stretch of the ocean near the family’s home in Oceanside and feed the homeless gathered around the beach. “He’d go feed them with sandwiches, he’d talk to them, he’d give them popsicles,” she said. It was just who Joseph was, both in childhood and adulthood— simple-minded but caring, loving, and innocent. “He liked most people, he was wonderfully different, he danced to the beat of a drummer that not every-

body else could hear…just a teddy bear, a manchild… loving and wonderful.” Suffering from both Asperger's syndrome, Joseph was bullied and teased frequently as a kid, Rebecca recalled, but still had plenty of friends and excelled in his classes at Ocean Shores Continuation High School, where he graduated in 2011. His mother said his troubles began however when he tried ecstasy on the night of his high school graduation — an experience Rebecca said led to increasing self-medication and a slow decline in Joseph’s mental well-being. Soon, Joseph started not coming home and began frequenting homeless encampments in the area, where Rebecca suspects he tried additional drugs other than ecstasy. “He started not coming home for weeks on end, he would be down living in homeless encampments… and then he’d even bring some of the homeless people home with him when he’d come back,” she said. Eventually, Joseph was hospitalized for a suicide attempt one summer, and he “never really came back,” after that, Rebecca said. Over the next several years there would be more suicide attempts, more hospitalizations, and Joseph would be TURN TO HOMELESS ON A20

Sports 500 NFL games? Tale of quest entertains, inspires

BRIAN GUSHUE smiles and waves while at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Gushue has written a book about attending 500 NFL games. Courtesy photo

rian Gushue wanted to write a grand book, but only after reaching halfa-grand. Gushue has done both and we’re not quite sure how he did it either. Not the scribbling part, as Gushue was a longtime and top-notch editor at the North County Times. Heaven knows he crafted my stories into better reads, with his eye for detail, accuracy and fairness. What’s amazing is that Gushue really did reach his goal, which is revealed in his first book, “The Grass Is Always Greener: One Football Fan’s Improbable Quest to Attend 500 NFL Games.” That’s right, 500. Gushue zigzagged across the nation for more than 40 years to hit his magical number. It was appropriate that Gushue notched No. 500 in Green Bay, as his smile from a photo at that game looked like someone had just said “cheese.” This is a book with few holes in it, Swiss or otherwise. Instead it’s a journey that lets the reader ride shotgun along with Gushue, who never witnessed an NFL game that he didn’t like. What doesn’t float Gushue’s boat is artificial turf. A game being contested on something other than grass ensures that Gushue’s, uhm, backside won’t be in a seat to watch it. “I just like the game better on grass,” he said. “That was the way it was meant to be played.” So Gushue gravitates to venues with playing sur-

faces that have to be watered. It’s the appearance, texture and smell of grass that triggers Gushue’s senses when he settles in. When getting cozy with Gushue’s book, it’s clear he’s not new to the game. His recountings of various games arrive with keen stories about the players and the big picture of what is transpiring. That alone makes it an interesting read, but there’s also a caveat that makes his work inspirational as well. The next time you are grousing about the inconveniences of travel, think about Gushue. He completed his goal despite being restricted in how long he can stand, and he mostly

gets around via his wheelchair. Muscular dystrophy has been part of Gushue’s life since childhood. But if it has slowed him down, good luck trying to find where. His determination to stiff-arm his disease only adds another layer to “Grass Is Always Greener.” And I’m green with envy in how Gushue not only brushes off his disability but does so with a grin and a manner that is nothing but gracious. “I credit that to my parents,” Gushue said. “They made sure I was as independent as possible when I was raised. I tell people that was a decision in which I reap dividends from every day.” After a series of operations, Gushue’s balance was good enough that he could walk well without crutches and play street football with his neighborhood buddies. While Gushue’s legs were compromised, it turned out he had a rocket for a right arm. “I had a God-given ability to throw a spiral,” Gushue said, and here comes the smile again. “And I had a good, strong arm.” And like any good son, he rooted for the opposite team as his parents. While they crossed their heart for the Dallas Cowboys, Gushue went hip, hip, hooray for the Miami Dolphins. And in particular, Bob Griese, their star quarterback. Gushue could only briefly play football, and as he said, “I had five or six

good years.” But Gushue never stopped rooting for Griese as he saw him play once and then attended his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction in 1990. An unlikely friendship was formed between them and it still flourishes today. Which brings us to a ruse that I admit to orchestrating. The Dolphins made TURN TO SPORTS TALK ON A21

San Marcos teen sets world rally racing record  Seth Quintero wins 12 stages at Rally Dakar By Steve Puterski

SAN MARCOS — In the middle of the desert, 19-year-old Seth Quintero had a choice to either quit racing or step on the gas. During the second stage of the Rally Dakar in Saudi Arabia in January, the San Marcos native led the Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team before his Red Bull OT3 racer broke down after losing a pair of differential boxes, which cost him 10 hours and took him out of contention for the overall title. As hard as it was to accept defeat — Quintero and his co-driver Dennis Zenz finished ninth overall — the Mission Hills High School graduate still managed to make international headlines and rally racing history after winning 12 of 13 stages at Rally Dakar, the most ever in a single rally. “This year I came in knowing that I had the confidence, the speed and I had the testing and training to win the race,” Quintero said. “That’s exactly what we tried to do. The first two days we won in style and in Stage 2 we had a mechanical failure that cost us about 10 hours. I really didn’t want to go through the race without any cause, so I just took it day-by-day and ended up

breaking the record.” Quintero competes in two different racing styles — desert off-road and rally raid — the latter of which is an international circuit

with stops in Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Morocco and Spain. Quintero is third overall in the T3 rankings, 10 points behind fellow Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team

driver Cristina Gutiérrez, according to Red Bull. Quintero’s racing journey into the desert started at an early age. When he was 4 years old, Quintero

started riding dirt bikes and quads in the desert with his family. As the years went by, Quintero eventually started competitively racing UTVs (utility task vehicles) at age 10 and quickly rose through the worldwide ranks. Although he wanted to race dirt bikes, Quintero was put in the car after his father was injured in a bike accident. “I grew up riding dirt bikes my whole life,” he said. “I wanted to be a professional dirt bike rider. My parents pulled me off the bike and they didn’t want me to get hurt. They put me in an off-road car when I turned 11 years old and I never turned back.” Quintero was a prodigy. At age 12, he won the youth class at the UTV World Championships. Eventually, he signed with Red Bull at 16 years old.

In 2018, Quintero added desert racing in the United States to his résumé, with second-place finishes in the MINT 400 and Pro UTV Vegas to Reno race when he was just 15. However, he wasn’t allowed to race internationally until he was 18. By his 18th birthday, Quintero was the youngest-ever stage winner at Rally Dakar in 2021. Currently, Quintero is focused on the World Rally-Raid Championship at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, where stages run from 217 kilometers (134 miles) to 318 (197 miles). Quintero said the rally races can run anywhere from four to 12 days, driving up to 12 hours per day. Quintero was recently honored by Mayor Rebecca Jones and the San Marcos City Council during a Feb. 22 ceremony at City Hall.

Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale.

arrested for multiple felonies including assaulting a police officer. “He deteriorated more and more, he was getting arrested over and over again, he would come home suicidal…one time he ran around with a butcher’s knife and got arrested, other times the police would just find him wandering the streets and take him home,” Rebecca said. The Reinigs “tried everything,” to get their son help, Rebecca recalled. Over the next 10 years, the family took Joseph to countless different hospitals, care facilities, and treatment centers. But beyond receiving a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, Rebecca said that Joseph never really received any kind of long-term care or stabilization. At most care centers, Joseph would simply end up back on the streets within days after admission because of the chronic shortage of beds throughout the county, Rebecca said. At other times, hospitals released him because Joseph simply refused help. “Time and time again, he was labeled gravely disabled and unable to care for himself…and time and time again they would release him back to the streets,” Rebecca said. “It was a vicious cycle. What he needed was long-term hospital care but the level of care he needed was non-existent in our town.” San Diego County suffers from an acute shortage of longer-term psychiatric care facilities, according to Paul Webster, founder and director of the Hope Street Coalition, a homelessness advocacy group. At the state level, lawmakers for years have ignored the need to invest dollars into psychiatric hospitals, in an approach that dates back to the 1960s when Webster says California bought into a “community-based mental health” approach that deemphasized the need for long-term care programs. As a result, San Diego politicians have long refrained from pushing for the type of psychiatric care centers needed for those like Joseph suffering from

T he C oast News severe mental illness, Webster said. Instead, families like the Reinigs often have to drive hours of county altogether, just to find a viable treatment option. “The kinds of mental health facilities that those with extreme illness need don’t really even exist in San Diego County,” Webster said. “Our policymakers at the county level aren’t connecting the dots to see what happens when you have no place to go for appropriate treatment— what happens is you see an explosion of unhoused and untreated individuals.” “What the county should be doing is not just building more housing but building more housing that heals, building more acute, more sub-acute, more adult residential facilities…creating spaces for people to and receive the appropriate treatment.”

He’d be alive today The Reinigs meanwhile, desperately made efforts to get Joseph conserved under state law. Under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act of 1967, or LPS, individuals requiring extensive mental health care can be placed under a conservatorship through an adult guardian, meaning that they can receive involuntary treatment. But the Reinig’s efforts to get Joseph conserved proved fruitless, as state officials who reviewed his case determined that he did not meet the required threshold. Their hands were tied. “We tried to get him conserved just last summer, a conservator investigator saw him but he knew all the right things to tell her to avoid getting conserved…he told her he was alright, then he took off and we couldn’t find him again,” Rebecca said. “I think if I could have had him conserved, forcing him to stay in a hospital and get stabilized longterm, I think he’d be alive today.” In order to get an individual conserved, family members must prove that their love is “gravely disabled,” unable to care for themselves and/or a threat to public safety. However, the way that the LPS law has been de-

signed and interpreted in California’s courts, it’s almost impossible for the average family to meet the “gravely disabled” threshold, says Chris Megison, president of Solutions for Change, a homeless services organization that operates in the North County area. “The way the law is designed…there’s just so much difficulty to prove eligibility for your loved one and to work through all the different hoops of this law is so painful and not something that in any way, shape or form is really going to be a positive experience for any family involved,” Megison said. “Unfortunately with LPS law, it’s an example of how the government is designed around containing a problem vs. solving the underlying problem…and the way that this system has been designed, it’s helped exacerbate and increase the level of mental anguish on our streets to an extent that we’ve never seen before.”

The new pandemic Desperate to get Joseph home, Rebecca would go alone to homeless encampments in Oceanside and Escondido, talking to anybody she could find to get an idea of her son’s whereabouts. She became acquainted with some of Joseph’s friends in the encampments and even got the phone numbers of some of the homeless in case they could help her find him. It was in searching for her son that Rebecca began to understand the true extent of the misery and squalor in the encampments. “I would say 90% of the people in these places are mentally ill with some type of addiction problem…it’s outrageous, it’s filthy, there’s needles, drugs, there are piles of [excement] everywhere in these camps…living on the streets truly is a fate worse than death," Rebecca said. On one occasion, a judge referred Joseph to Restoration Ranch, a sober living facility in Ramona, where he was discharged within weeks after program managers told RebecTURN TO HOMELESS ON A23

ORBIT HOMES is making park community living the new affordable luxury standard. Courtesy photo

Reinventing park home communities:

Contemporary edition Orbit Homes creates new generation of manufactured homes By Danielle Nederend

“I never would have imagined living in the mountains by the beach - much less in a beautiful home,” Travis Collings, of Malibu, CA said in disbelief. “Orbit Homes made this possible.” Upending the manufactured home industry is what Orbit Homes is here to do. Founded in Malibu, bringing over a decade of stick-built and remodeling construction experience, brothers Or and Dror Michaelo created a luxury manufactured home solution for people like Collings, who would have thought living in their most desired location was out of reach. Orbit Homes presents a new standard of manufactured homes - challenging the norm of the manufactured housing industry with a contemporary design built to the highest standards of the HUD code. They are customizable to homebuyers’ needs, yet sleek in design and turnaround time. Constructed to adhere to the HUD code in the state of California means that these homes can be purchased and placed on private residential land or in manufactured home communities. Permitting is needed only to check the foundation and connection to utilities. With the combination of simplicity in process and luxury of style, Orbit Homes has reinvented the possibilities for homeowners in California and ignited new interest in living in park communities. According to the Manufactured Housing Institute, almost 95,000 new homes were produced in 2020 - accounting for approximately 9% of new, single-family homes. What are sometimes perceived as lower-end quality, park communities provide a prime opportunity for hopeful homebuyers to create a realistic residential experience in an affordable space. By working with Or-

bit Homes, residents of park communities beautify their home. Orbit’s contemporary, open floor plan home models completely transform possibilities for contemporary manufactured homes. Fashionably styled with sliding doors and high windows expand the home living area. Park communities also qualify for favorable financing and offer a neighborhood with shared amenities like swimming pools, recreation centers and tennis courts. Orbit Homes is making park community living the new affordable luxury standard. By constructing premium, contemporary manufactured homes, Orbit Homes solves the problem for homebuyers in California. Whether currently living in park communities, or looking for an affordable space in an otherwise expensive zip code - Orbit Homes answers to those needs, while surpassing industry standards. For current park community residents, many manufactured homes are deteriorating. Homeowner options would be to replace with another model, or undergo construction to renovate. Renovations typically incur more costs than replacing the manufactured homes. In this case, Orbit Homes offers unprecedented value for these homeowners: quality, contemporary styles featuring front decks and an indoor-outdoor living experience. It’s as simple as selecting your homestyle and colors on the Orbit Homes website - and voila! Your new home is delivered. For those who are new to considering living in park communities - Orbit Homes is here to level up the standard of quality. As San Diego has recently been classified as the least affordable housing

market in the nation, a major problem clearly arises for millennials and boomers ages 25-65 hopeful to own a home someday. Covid has only worsened matters - as people more than ever crave outdoor space private to their home or family unit. Young families have now resorted to buying in mobile home communities, as manufactured homes are considerably more affordable than a single family residence or condo. Yet homebuyers still hope for that home experience that suits their style and personality - and traditional manufactured home styles are severely outdated. Orbit Homes solves this problem by flipping the experience of living in a park community with a contemporary Orbit design. Timeless contemporary color options excite new homeowners to feel right at, well…home. The Orbit Homes team members contribute a plethora of diverse life and design experience to create the beauty that is Orbit Homes. Orbit’s team includes a world-traveling surfer, a wellness retreat creator, a regenerative agricultural consultant, and a brand visionary for projects in Tulum, to name a few. With their colorful backgrounds and a physical environment influencing performance, well-being and inspiration, they thoughtfully integrate beauty, functionality and comfort into every home they deliver. “We are passionate about challenging the stigma of manufactured homes,” says Or Michaelo, chief visionary officer. “We are actually creating a new generation of manufactured homes.” Check out the Orbit Homes gallery to see for yourself: https://orbithomes. us/gallery/

They were born a year and one day apart from each other. Milton’s birthday is on February 25th and Dorothy’s is February 26th, they are now 95 and 94 years old, respectively. Milton loves trolleys! When asked how his passion began, Milton replied that he has enjoyed riding trolleys since he was a young boy. His father ran a distillery in Imperial Beach and transported alcohol down south…during Prohibition! When he was four years old, Milton went to live with extended family who gave him a roof over his head and three meals a day, but not much more. When he moved in with his grandparents, Milton began riding the trolleys when he was ten years old. Being in a happier environment, Milton said the trolley rides represented freedom to him. He could ride the trolley home from school and then raid the refrigerator! Milton rode the trolley system all over Los Angeles and then again in San Diego when he returned to live here. Those were the days before bus companies came in and took over much of the transportation down-

town. Once city buses were on the scene, trolleys were all by eliminated. Fortunately for Milton, trolleys have been running up in San Diego for quite some time now! GlenBrook Health Center’s Second Wind Dreams has fulfilled Milton’s wish as they hosted the Rolls’ ride on the San Di-

Another time, the Reinigs took Joseph to Tender Loving Mercy Inc., a dual diagnosis center in Oceanside designed to treat both those suffering from addiction as well as the mentally ill — but Rebecca said that staff at the facility were verbally abusive and disrespectful to Joseph, so she pulled him out of the program. Twelve days before Joseph’s death, Rebecca said that he was admitted to the Aurora Behavioral Health Care in Rancho Bernardo for treatment. Rebecca said she called the hospital, desperately pleading for them to place a three-day psychiatric hold on Joseph that would have prevented him from being released back to the streets — but hospital staff told her that Joseph had been violent with care workers and that they could not continue to hold him there against his will. Joseph was discharged and dropped off at a CVS store where he had told staff he had a prescription to pick up. A couple of days later, a homeless woman stumbled across Joseph’s body, about five miles east of the CVS. The cause of his death remains under investigation, although police believe that illicit substanc-

es, including fentanyl, may have played a factor. She’ll never forget the day she got that call from her middle son Jonathan. “My son called me in the morning and said, ‘Have you heard from Joey lately,’ and I said, ‘No, I’m waiting to hear from him, they just let him out of the hospital and he hasn’t called, and he said, ‘Well, he’s not going to be calling mom’— he had to tell me that his brother was dead.” In telling her story, Rebecca said she hopes that she can help other families avoid what happened to her son and fight the social stigma that exists when it comes to the homeless. “No other mother should have to go through what I went through…I used to think I was the only person with an ill son on the streets…but there are thousands of people like my son,” Rebecca said. “It’s the new pandemic, and it’s getting worse. And then there’s the stigma, people just don’t care, they see your son die and they say ‘another drug addict bites the dust’...well to us our son was so much more than this.” Since Joseph’s death, Rebecca admitted she’s struggled to forgive herself, constantly questioning what more she could have done to get her son off the streets. “I think I should have been able to do more, I should have been able to save him,” Rebecca said. “I just go back over everything day in and day out

and ask what more could I have done, what did I miss, who else could have talked to…the guilt sometimes overpowers me.” But Rebecca said she’s found a new purpose in sharing her story with others. She connects with other mothers in her community, sharing Joseph’s story in communal Facebook groups or at in-person events, and she says that her goal is to eventually get into public speaking to push for change when it comes to conservatorship laws and the need for more comprehensive care for the homeless that addresses mental illness. “I promised my son that his death won’t be in vain, if I have to scream it out from the rooftops I will…if it can happen to us, it can happen to anybody,” Rebecca said. “To me, this is a civil rights issue…our loved ones are out there on the streets and they don’t have those rights we’re promised in this county, rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For these families, there’s gotta be an answer somewhere out there for you…I’m willing to fight for that.” EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the final article in The Coast News' three-part series profiling homeless individuals and their families in North County.

Wildcoast, city study blue carbon

small talk jean gillette

By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — The City of Del Mar’s San Dieguito Lagoon Committee last week created a subcommittee with the goal to participate in Wildcoast’s Blue Carbon Collaborative and receive and review the findings of the Blue Carbon Study in the San Dieguito Lagoon. Wildcoast is an environmental group that works in the U.S. and Mexico to conserve coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife. One of the group’s projects in San Diego studies how lagoons and wetlands can help reduce the rate of warming by capturing carbon. This process is known as “blue carbon.” The organization has partnered with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to study how much carbon these wetlands and lagoons can capture, and how to preserve these ecosystems so they can capture even more. “By conserving and restoring these ecosystems, we ensure that the carbon stored in them remains in the ground for years to come, and that they will have even greater potential to store more carbon in the ongoing fight against climate change,” Wildcoast said of the project. During the city’s Lagoon Committee meeting, members formed a Restoration Subcommittee that will strive for more collaboration with Wildcoast and other blue carbon groups in the region. The subcommittee plans to “collaborate with the Sustainability Advisory Committee on Sea Level Rise impacts to the lagoon and the potential for the City to receive Blue Carbon Credits. Raise awareness about the San Dieguito Lagoon and trails through education, field work, and outreach,” according to the staff report. The subcommittee also hopes to participate in Wildcoast’s Blue Carbon Collaborative and receive and review the findings of the Blue Carbon Study on the San Dieguito Lagoon, which is expected to be reTURN TO LAGOON ON B5

Over the past several months, Snyder secured commitments from 17 muralists who previously worked on the Grubby’s wall to paint permanent installations at the Grand Avenue location. Snyder also went on the fundraising circuit securing $30,000 in donations from 38 organizations and individuals to pay the artists, signage, supplies, a security camera and a donation to the Boys & Girls Club. Snyder, who was recognized by the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce with a Community Impact Local award, also plans to raise funds for a dedicated website and has launched an Instagram page, the “Carlsbad Alley Art Wall.” But further down the alley is what Snyder is really proud, the interactive component to entice beginners, especially kids, to express their creative side. Snyder kept the space blank for anyone to paint on and over, thus giving people their own public area. As for the public wall,

ell, fine. I can’t complain about blizzards and hours of shoveling out the car, but I have my own West Coast whine. Once we got that badly needed rain, my yard is got way too full of itself. The yard has gone spring green, it’s true, but the majority of that foliage is weeds. These require removal, on my hands and knees, while getting the back of my neck sunburned. I realize yardwork is to be expected by late February in SoCal, but I find I’m not quite ready to give up my book by the fire yet. Thanks to the rain, my habitual garden neglect has been overruled and all my plants are overflowing their charming, carefully selected pots. I know it may sound peculiar, but, in truth, I am always rather pleased when plants just stay about the size at which I purchased them. For instance, I planted these cute, 18-inch ponytail palms a few years ago in my front yard (yes, it does seem like it was just last week). They were to replace the fartoo -h ig h -ma i ntena nce rose bushes I killed. I stepped back yesterday and noticed the palms are now nearly 5 feet. I’m told they are slow-growing, but I got a little queasy when I learned they might reach 20 feet. What? Do some research before I plant? Tsk. So it’s come to that annoying crossroad — find another dozen, somewhat larger but still charming pots, multiple bags of potting soil and

Artist gives youth canvas  Public art wall offers open space for kids to paint By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Local artist Bryan Snyder’s latest public art project combines space for several muralists and a blank wall for budding young artists to hone their craft. Snyder, a Carlsbad resident, unveiled the Alley Art Wall on Feb. 26 in Carlsbad featuring an interactive session with several kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad. Just like that, Snyder’s 20-year vision for a grander art wall became a reality. Snyder partnered with the nonprofit as a way to draw kids to the open space of the wall, which is 15-feet high and 54-feet wide, including a 10-foot-by-12-foot space dedicated to anyone wanting to learn or practice painting. “It was an emotional day for me,” Snyder said. “To see that group of kids working together, a lot of kids who didn’t know each other, painting together, collaborating, and even creating friendships.

rowing up in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan, my friends and I sat for hours in the summertime on the sandy beach watching thunderstorms coming in from Michigan. Lighting often struck on the horizon almost one hundred miles away, and we would giggle with joy and we took our feet out of the cold water, thinking we might be the next lightning rod! Living on the lake taught me how to observe changes in weather and how it affects our lives. My Dad had a small rock garden at our cottage, but had little success with annuals that needed lots of heat and sunlight. Our little coastline was often beset with the same gray, cool weather that abounds here in Carlsbad in June. Although the Wisconsin Lake Michigan summer weather was cool, just up the hill two miles away was beautiful farmland where a local farm sold the best sweet corn and tomatoes we had ever tasted! Yum!

Check your local weather and zonal area

Now, as a gardener on the West Coast, I have learned to “watch the weather,” and to try to predict the upcoming spring planting season. The ongoing fallacy that “it’s always sunny here, San Diego has the perfect weather” is not necessarily true. This is the time of year when everyone I meet who knows that I am a gardener asks me the question, “What can I plant now?” Since I, too, am a transplant from a very cold climate, I have to research all the best plants as well as climate conditions for the pre-Spring March we have before us. The site that I use the most is San Diego Master Gardener website which, free of charge, will give you all the charts, and specific cultural conditions for each of 50 vegetables at www. mastergardenersd.org. Another valuable source for planting information is from a local company, San Diego Seed Company. Owner, Brigette Pena offers weekly YouTube presentations on her webpage on a weekly basis. Check her out at www.sandiegoseedcompany.com. Her weekly columns featured on her webpage on Thursdays and Fridays, provide timely and strictly local advice about “what to plant now.”

eryone wants to jump into planting tomatoes too early. If the plants receive the slightest amount of 40 degree night time temperature, their growth will be stunted, the buds will fall off and you have just wasted your money!” According to Hallie, one of the horticulturists at Green Thumb Nursery in San Marcos, “We have lots of varieties available now, but customers have to remember to harden them off at home, taking them indoors at night.” So, buyer beware, if you must buy now bring them indoors, or wait until they are available in a few weeks, and be ready to plant in late April. Production planting

My students at the Pine Street Community Senior Garden in Carlsbad have been planting a wider variety of salad greens and preparing the beds for tomato and pepper season. The mistake that many gardeners make at this time of year is to fall for the allure of the incredible variety of tomatoes offered in early March that are often

grown in warmer climates, then shipped to many of the larger garden centers. As a result, I prefer to shop at smaller local garden centers who receive products each week from local growers that will be acclimated to our changeable weather. According to my colleague at SUNY Cobleskill School of Agriculture,Professor Chris Cash, “Ev-

While working in numerous nurseries, and studying greenhouse management in college, I learned the value of production planting. My students and I tried this method at the Pine Street Senior Center Community Garden recently and we were pleased with our results. If you try this method in your raised bed, you will have a plethora of different leafy greens to choose from, and enough to pass on to neighbors or add to a windbox or planted. The key is to purchase at least five different varieties of lettuce and leafy

greens, and look for the largest packages you can find. Many catalogs such as Seeds of Change. Johnny’s Seed Company or Pinetree Garden Seed Company offer packets that contain over an ounce of seed for a reasonable price, whereas many of the local box stores sell packets that weigh much less. Since there are ten gardeners in our group, we planted long rows of lettuce seeds, with between 50 100 seeds in a row. At first, the amount seemed a little shocking to the students but as the little seedlings popped up, we were greeted with over 100 seedlings, and we had plenty to share. When they reached the transplanting stage, usually 3-4 inches in height, we all had a field day digging up the rows to be transplanted into their home smaller gardens and window boxes. Fellow gardeners, enjoy this wonderful early Spring. But keep your thermometers on your porch, and check them every day.

Skate Rising back to give girls boost By Staff

ENCINITAS — March 12 marks the return of Exposure’s youth program, Skate Rising. After pausing in-person programming due to COVID-19, Exposure Skate will resume free Skate Rising events for girls ages 4 to 18 from 9 to 11 a.m. every second Saturday of the month at Encinitas Community Park, 425 Santa Fe Drive. Girls interested in skateboarding are encouraged to attend these free classes. Equipment and skate coaches will be provided. The first community service project will be geared around anti-bullying and kindness. Skate Rising works to teach compassion through service and empowerment through skateboarding. Free monthly classes consist of a teaching moment where girls learn about a need in the community, a service project designed to alleviate that need and a learn-to-skate clinic taught by professional and Olympic skateboarders. Skaters of all ability levels are welcome. Offering more than just skateboarding, Skate Rising gives girls the chance to gather together and give back to at-risk and underprivileged populations. “Skate Rising teaches girls to set goals and confront not only personal challenges but those facing their communities,” said Amelia Brodka, Olympic skateboarder and co-founder of Exposure Skate. Past Skate Rising events have targeted issues such as bullying, homeless-

In addition, for adults interested in skateboarding, more than 18 clinics will launch on March 26. Following the focus on community, Skate Rising girls are given access to equipment and safety gear rental as they are taught

new skills by visiting skateboarding professionals in a fun, community-oriented setting. Calli Kelsay started the program in 2016 after watching her two oldest daughters learn to skate. “My little 6- and 8-year-old girls were learning to overcome fear, think creatively and the benefits of working hard,” said Kelsay. “I saw first-hand skateboarding help my children grow in confidence and resilience which transferred to many aspects of their lives.” Inspired by her girls, Skate Rising was born, as Kelsay began exploring ways to share skateboarding and connection with the broader community. Sarah Daugirda, parent to two participants, said, “I attended these events monthly for two years. In that time I watched hundreds of girls come in shy, timid and insecure, and leave two hours later all smiles, exuding confidence, proud and eager to be better humans.” Skate Rising volunteer and Olympic skateboarder, Bryce Wettstein, shared that “Skate Rising ties a beautiful twine around everyone’s hearts (where) we all learn more about each other… and that dreams are possible.” For more information on Exposure’s youth and adult skateboarding programs, visit exposureskate. org or @exposureskate on Instagram.

Set your clocks & do a few other semi-annual tasks that will improve safety in your home.

• Check and replace the batteries in your

smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms AND check the AGE of the alarms. The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests replacing any smoke alarms older than ten years and CO alarms older than five years. • Prepare a disaster supply kit for your home (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets, medications). Once you have created your home disaster kit, use the semi-annual time change to check its contents. • Check for hazardous materials in your home and any outbuilding storage areas. Properly discard any which are outdated, no longer used, or in poor condition. • Check and discard expired medications those dates really DO have meaning - some very common over-the-counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging.

f you’ve surfed for a while, you realize that the only way to get in shape for surfing is by surfing. The muscle groups needed for paddling and standing on a surfboard are unique to our art, and the unpredictable shifts taken by waves when wind, tide or swell direction shift require countless hours of watching the ocean as the lineup morphs into something new. Still, there are times when travel, injury or the ocean itself can prevent us from riding waves. It is then that serious surfers train to keep themselves as sharp as possible, in anticipation of their inevitable return to their spawning grounds. In previous columns I have suggested the use of the Surf-Fit Performance Mat along with various exercises like swimming, pushups, planks, yoga and boxing. Any exercise that increases strength, stamina, balance or flexibility willCROP do. The most obvious .93 cross-trainer available is .93 the4.17 skateboard. While fun on 4.28 its own, skateboarding (once called “sidewalk surfing”) mimics wave riding better than nearly any other activity.

water spot chris ahrens position, not even skateboarding will totally prepare you to surf. I recently had the opportunity to interview Bryce Wettstein of Encinitas, a surfer, skateboarder, volleyball player, skim boarder, poet, writer, artist, singer-songwriter, designer, style master and Olympian. While Bryce has somehow become accomplished in each of the aforementioned activities — she was recently named style director for the GeoMetro Party skate brand — her greatest achievement as I see it is joy, something she is an ambassador of and spreads thickly and generously throughout the world. As a skateboarder, she has competed and excelled at the highest level, culminating at age 17 with her taking 6th at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. Nonetheless, it’s easy to get the impression that Wettstein cares more for hanging with friends and family and the electrified buzz induced by her gravity-defying ballet than she does winning medals. Watching on TV as she played her ukulele for friends at the Olympic Village hammered home the point. As she recently stated, “The Olympics are a dream come true, however, it is only a very small part of skateboarding. It does not define me or skateboarding. The best thing about the contests starting up again is getting to hang out with all my international skate friends again. It seems this is the only way to get together. “Tokyo 2021 will come and go, but skateboarding will keep going on forever.” If I were to write Bryce Wettstein’s bio, I would add intangibles like Love. Joy. Light. Ability. Humility. Ambassador of goodness. Did I mention that she’s a brilliant surfer?

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad Unified School District says repairs have been completed to purge contaminated drinking water at Hope Elementary School, which may have been present in the school's water system for several months. In a statement issued Monday, the district said that shortly after the school reopened in the fall, there were “sporadic reports” of water discoloration. In November, more complaints were lodged regarding the color, taste and smell of the water, though testing did not indicate the water was unsafe, the district said. Following further investigation, which concluded that no e. coli or other harmful bacteria was found in the water, the district shut off water at the campus last Thursday after concluding that domestic water lines at the school were crossed with reclaimed water irrigation lines on campus. According to the district, the cause of the cross connection remains under investigation, though it said “it appears that this happened during the course of

construction based on the timing of complaints and the location of the cross connection.” City crews have since purged the system with highly chlorinated water, then flushed out the chlorinated water with potable water. The school's drinking water dispenser filters have also been replaced. Following the repairs, the city conducted further water testing, which was reviewed by the county of San Diego before the school was reopened Monday, the district says. No similar reports have

occurred at other district schools, but the city is conducting cross connection testing at Kelly and Magnolia elementary schools as a precaution. In a Frequently Asked Questions document issued for parents, the district says reclaimed water contains “higher levels of salts, dissolved minerals, nitrogen and phosphorus than drinking water,” but stressed that it is treated and disinfected, per EPA guidelines aimed at keeping biological contaminants “to a safe minimum.” The FAQ states that per

the State Water Resources Control Board, parents whose children exhibit symptoms of stomach or intestinal illness should seek medical attention. The district says that when it received the initial complaints, construction teams said the issue was merely aesthetic and would be resolved by flushing the system. It also emphasized that testing results did not initially indicate anything was amiss, though subsequent test results indicated increased levels of chlorine, water hardness and alkaline content. “We are sincerely sorry that this was not reported earlier,” the district said in its statement. “We relied on the reports and information from our contractors, construction and bond program managers that the water had been tested for safety, that the issue was aesthetic, and would resolve. “We did not anticipate the cause of the problem, and we regret that we did not discover the cause sooner. Once we were alerted to the cause, we took all the steps necessary to prevent further exposure; to inform our community; and to resolve the problem.”

Mask mandate ending for schools By City News Service

REGION — California will lift its mask mandates for schools, which required students and staff to wear masks indoors, at 11:59 p.m. on March 11, making face coverings "strongly recommended'' but not mandated, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Feb. 28. As of Tuesday, meanwhile, the state will also lift its requirement that unvaccinated people wear masks in most indoor settings, but masks will be "strongly recommended'' for everyone indoors. Masks will also continue to be required for everyone at settings including healthcare facilities, transit centers, airports, aboard public transit, in correctional facilities and at homeless shelters and long-term care facilities. "California continues to adjust our policies based on the latest data and science, applying what we've learned over the past two years to guide our response to the pandemic,'' Newsom said in a statement. "Masks are an effective tool to minimize spread of the virus and future variants, especially when transmission rates are high. We cannot predict the future of the virus, but we are better prepared for it and will continue to take measures rooted in science to keep California moving forward.'' Under the timeline an-

San Marcos, water district add park hydration stations By Staff

STATE MASK MANDATES will end March 11 for California schools.

nounced Monday, the state will no longer mandate indoor mask-wearing on school campuses beginning March 12. Individual school districts or counties, however, will have the option of maintaining local requirements if they deem them necessary. It was not immediately clear if Los Angeles County — which has taken a conservative approach throughout the pandemic in easing public health rules — will align with the state and lift the school masking requirement. The county has already lifted its outdoor mask-wearing rule at schools and child-care centers. The governors of Oregon and Washington joined

Newsom in Monday's announcement, with those states also announcing the lifting of indoor mask requirements as of 11:59 p.m. March 11 — effectively ending the face-covering rules for the entire West Coast. The announcement comes following Friday's change in guidance by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which adopted new standards that rely largely on COVID hospital numbers to govern whether masks should be worn. Those new standards — while resulting in mask recommendations being lifted for much of the country, still classified Los Angeles and San Diego counties as having "high'' virus activity

and urged that people continue to wear masks. Under the new CDC guidance, both Orange and Riverside counties are in the "medium'' category, so the federal guidance does not require mask-wearing. Despite California's lifting of indoor mask-wearing requirements, Los Angeles County continues to require face coverings in most indoor settings. However, the county is allowing vaccinated people to remove their masks in indoor locations where all patrons are checked for either a COVID vaccination or a recent negative test.

SAN MARCOS — The the city of San Marcos and the Vallecitos Water District are committed to the reduction of single-use plastics in our community. To accomplish that, they teamed up to offer new hydration stations in local parks to encourage refilling reusable bottles during outdoor activities instead of reaching for bottled water. On Feb. 22, the San Marcos City Council issued a proclamation recognizing the ongoing partnership between the Vallecitos Water District and the city. A city ordinance adopted last October restricts the use of single-use plastic food-service ware. The Vallecitos board approved a resolution in support of the ordinance. Five new hydration stations feature a quickfill mechanism to encourage reusable water bottle use, a regular water fountain spout and a dog bowl. Vallecitos worked with the city’s Public Works Department to install hydration stations at Mission Sports Field

Park, Woodland Park, Bradley Park, Connors Park and Buelow Park. The hydration stations were made possible by the San Diego County Water Authority and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which provided $25,000 in grant funding to cover the cost of the stations and signage. The educational signage installed on the stations highlights the benefits of tap water over bottled water while also informing the public of simple steps they can take to conserve our most precious resource. “Adding hydration stations throughout the community has been a longtime goal for Vallecitos and is a step in the right direction to increase access to clean drinking water and reduce single use plastic waste for environmental sustainability,” said Vallecitos Board Member Mike Sannella, who attended the council meeting and accepted the proclamation.

Del Mar council resolution opposes beach groins By Tigist Layne

DEL MAR — The Del Mar City Council met last week and approved resolutions reaffirming the city’s position on the long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) and opposing construction of devices that could impede the natural flow of beach sand. The first resolution, brought forward by Mayor Dwifght Worden and Councilmember Terry Gaasterland, is similar to ones the city has adopted before regarding a solution to store the nuclear waste at San Onofre. The nuclear plant is owned by Southern California Edison and was discontinued almost 10 years ago. By law, the U.S. Department of Energy is responsible for developing a disposal facility for the long-term management of used uranium fuel from U.S. nuclear power plants. However, there is still no solid plan in place. “There are a lot of risks and worries there should the canisters leak, how we monitor them,” Worden said. “I think everybody, including Edison, agrees it isn’t great to have them where they are. And the real fault here to the extent there is real fault lies with the federal government.” The resolution calls for identification of a safer long-term storage site located away from populated

areas and urges the swift relocation of all nuclear waste from San Onofre to safer interim storage. It also advocates for federal legislation that would increase local agencies and the state’s ability to participate in and/or

fund the decommissioning of nuclear power plants. A proposed site at Yucca Mountain in Nevada has been discussed over the past several years, but has consistently been met with resistance from residents of the state.

“The nuclear waste… is a threat to agriculture, to food production, to our fish, to our very way of life,” Gaasterland said during the meeting. “The point of this is to keep up the pressure… these resolutions to reaffirm give empowerment

and visibility to the private citizen groups and nonprofit groups that are pushing to keep this on the forefront.” The council also approved, 4-1, a resolution opposing construction of devices that could impede the natural flow of beach sand.

The resolution, brought forward by Worden and Gaasterland, examines the construction of devices such as groins that could significantly reduce the natural sediment transport southward and alter the character of Del Mar’s shoreline. Groins are narrow structures built out into the water from a beach in order to trap and accumulate sand that would otherwise drift along the beach, In August 2021, the Oceanside City Council unanimously approved initiating a pilot program to install five 600-foot-long groins, 1,000 feet apart, extending into the ocean at right angles from the rock revetments that border the ocean. However, according to the staff report, the groins have been shown to interfere with the natural flow of sand down the coast specifically the sand transported south by large North Pacific swells during the fall and winter months. The Del Mar council voted 4-1 to pass the resolution, effectively opposing Oceanside’s groin project. The city joins Carlsbad and Solana Beach in opposing the project. “This is something that would be counter-productive,” said Gaasterland. “It would retain sand, but at a cost.” Councilmember Dan Quirk was the sole “no” vote to the resolution.

Bright Idea Robin Folsom, 43, the former director of external affairs for the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency, was indicted on Feb. 10 for faking multiple pregnancies in order to get paid leave from her position, The Washington Post reported. Folsom reported her latest pregnancy to human resources in October 2020 and allegedly gave birth in May 2021. The "father" of the newborn, Bran Otmembebwe, emailed her bosses and said her doctor had called for seven weeks of leave following the birth, which she ordinarily would not have received. Pictures that Folsom shared with co-workers were found to be "inconsistent and depicted children with varying skin tones," the inspector general's report said. Co-workers also noticed that her baby bump seemed to be detached from her body. In addition, "a review of medical and insurance records found no indication that Folsom had ever delivered a child." Folsom resigned after an October 2021 interview with investigators and is due back in court in April. [Washington Post, 2/18/2022] Police Report Former Chadbourn (North Carolina) Police Chief Anthony Spivey, 36, was taken into custody in Conway, South Carolina, on Feb. 24, ending nearly a year of magnificent flouting of the law, WECT-TV reported. It all started in April 2021, when Spivey was charged with more than 70 offenses, mostly related to repeatedly raiding the department’s evidence room and stealing narcotics, cash and firearms. In June, he allegedly embezzled $8,000 meant for a family whose son was battling leukemia. North Carolina Wildlife officers contacted the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 21 about a boat and truck that belonged to Spivey that were found along the Lumber River. Family members told officers

the scene might indicate a suicide, and investigators searched the waters and wooded areas nearby for three days. But as the investigation continued, “it became even more apparent that the scene on the river was staged,” they said. He was finally located at his aunt’s apartment in Loris, South Carolina. His total bond is set at $1 million. [WECT, 2/24/2022] Going to Extremes It was sooooo cold in Beijing during the men's 50km cross-country skiing event. How cold was it, you ask?

After hearing about the syndrome, the Samples visited a specialist at Emory Hospital, who said she's only seen one case in 19 years.

However, kids under 18 who use spray paint must do so with an adult present, per a city ordinance. “No one really has to worry about weather-resistant paint,” Snyder added. “If it can make a mark on the wall and it’s an art supply, it’s good.” As for the Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad, Abby Snyder (no relation) and Brince Washington said the opening of the wall

Abby Snyder said for years the kids at the club have gone to Grubby’s with Snyder, who held workshops and encourages kids to get into art. Washington said art is the core of the club, which encourages the kids to be expressive and creative. “We’ve been working with Bryan for years,” Abby Snyder said. “Our kids have really benefited from it. It’s been a long process and it’s amazing. Our kids really do benefit from being connected to the community.”

REGION — San Diego County supervisors voted 4-0 on Tuesday to create a one-year pilot doula program as a way to support underserved parents and improve maternal health, including birth rates. Trained to provide guidance and support during labor and birth, doulas “can significantly improve health outcomes,'' according to the office of Nathan Fletcher, chairman of the county Board of Supervisors. “For Black, Indigenous and people of color there is a lack of access to doulas due to cost, inadequate health care, and an absence of providers from these populations,” Fletcher said. “This new pilot program will generate better outcomes by providing doulas to assist in pregnancy, labor and delivery, and by training the next generation of doulas to serve their communities.” According to the county, doulas can also help to: — decrease the number of cesarean sections, — lower the rate of epidural and pain medication use, — increase healthy birth outcomes and breastfeeding rates; and — decrease postpartum depression rates. The county will spend $400,000 on the program, via contracts with local organizations and doulas to serve more individuals at

no cost to them, train more doulas and promote better health outcomes. Nora Vargas, board vice chairwoman, said women of color have higher rates of pregnancy-related deaths, and the doula program will help the county address such health disparities. Her colleague Jim Desmond said healthy moms and babies are the ultimate goal, and “this is a good step towards getting pregnant women the education they need.” The term doula is derived from the modern Greek language. The doula practice was part of a nat-

ural birth movement that started in the United States during the 1960s. Supervisor Joel Anderson was ill and didn’t participate in Tuesday’s meeting, held via teleconference. Residents called in to praise the pilot program. Crystal Irving, president of the local Service Employees International Union chapter, said the supervisors’ approval shows the board is “listening to our concerns.” Two callers took issue with board documents using the term “birthing persons” instead of women. Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer, who has de-

scribed herself as non- binary, said the board letter notes the county region's diversity. “It’s important the language we use not be discriminatory,” LawsonThe Board of Supervisors also voted 4-0 to ban county investment in all fossil fuels — including coal, petroleum and natural gas — as part of an effort to combat climate change. According to Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer’s office, the action will prohibit investments “in any corporation that engages in the exploration, production, drilling or refining’’ of fossil fuels.

hursdays are a special day at The Brewers Tap Room in Encinitas, California. It’s the day that local brewers deliver fresh kegs of specialty beer. So when manager Travis Hudson invited us to visit on a recent Thursday afternoon, the I Like Beer the Podcast, or ILB, team happily accepted. There was quite a gathering even by 4 p.m. A mix of locals meeting to chat, a few people extending their workday with a pint, and at least two other beer enthusiasts sampling unique brews. Indoors, The Brewers Tap Room is designed to look like a working brewery’s taproom with a long bar, TVs, and over 20 tap handles of local and specialty beers from across the country. The lineup is complemented by an extensive can and bottle selection which includes a number of hardto-find labels. For the nonbeer drinker, wines, ciders,

breweries in the area. I enjoyed a Del Martian Amber Ale from Viewpoint Brewing, and ILB Co-host Jeff Riccitelli sipped a Burgeon Brewing Modern Clarity. The Del Martian is a medium-bodied, malty ale with some bitterness to balance out the slight sweetness. Modern Clarity is a collaboration beer made with Boneyard Beer and Alamont. It’s a full hit, trueto-style West Coast IPA made with Citra, Strata and Cashmere hops. Five Suits, Eppig, and BattleMage (all from Vista, California) are regularly featured in the line-up. We saw deliveries from Pure Project and Rip Current arrive during our visit. From South County, Thr3e Punks Ale shows up weekly. Hudson shared, “I really enjoy putting on beers from breweries that people who live in Coastal North County might not get a chance to try.” We asked Hudson what do the smaller, independent breweries offer as a unique experience with what they are making? “The styles being produced in San Diego seem to be becoming more and more diverse. As easily as

you can find the regular hop bombs everyone loves, you can now find really good lagers and even sours without having to search too far," Hudson said. “I wouldn’t say there’s beer seasonality in San Diego, so tastes almost change with what little change in weather we have here. IPAs remain king, but exposing drinkers to really good Helles lagers and schwarzbier (black lager) or barrel-aged sours, I think, has challenged the palates of our customers. “The die-hard hopheads have balanced things out with some crisp German-style lagers, and our bright style beer drinkers have ventured over to the bitter side. Convincing people to just try something different but also knowing what beers to bring in to keep them happy is key to retaining a customer base.” To see what is currently on tap, check out The Brewers Tap Room beer menu on their website. It’s kept up to date for the convenience of beer enthusiasts chasing down something new or an old favorite. During our visit, we met Llysia Calverts, an IPA TURN TO CHEERS! ON B19

A tasty tour of Alexander Valley Vineyards, Sextant Wines taste of wine frank mangio & rico cassoni

V

ictor Magalhaes, owner of Vittorio’s Italian Ristorante in Carmel Valley, recently hosted a wine dinner showcasing the wines of Alexander Valley Vineyards. Caitlin McDonald, account manager at Republic National Distributors Company, was on hand to share the Alexander Valley story. Frank and I enjoyed learning the history of the vineyard along with Caitlin’s commentary on the wines we tasted over dinner. Harry and Maggie Wetzel purchased the historic Cyrus Alexander homestead from heirs in 1962, with hopes and dreams of creating a thriving agricultural lifestyle. Alexander was one of the region’s first settlers in the mid-1800s, hence Alexander Valley. In 1963 with children in tow, the Wetzels arrived, and the original vines were planted. Current owner Hank Wetzel grew up learning about the vineyards tying canes and trimming vines as a young boy. The first bottling (cabernet sauvignon) was in 1968 with the entire family, including the children, taking part. Hooked on wine, Hank went to UC Davis in 1969 to formerly learn viticulture. Today, visitors will embark on a relaxed atmosphere with family at the heart of Alexander Valley wines representing four generations of Wetzells. Dinner kicked off with seared scallops atop polenta in a brown butter caper sauce. This was paired with 2019 Estate Chardonnay with a hint of viognier (1%). The food-friendly chardonnay was light and bright. The stainless steel fermentation imparted floral tones with peach and melon on the palate. Guests enjoyed Chiocciole pasta in a savory lamb ragu served with 2019 merlot for the second course. “AVV’s merlot is for cab lovers based on the 11% cab sauv blending," McDonald said. The blended merlot held up well with the savory ragu. My favorite course of the evening was the third course — Tuscan-style pork belly served over garlic mashed potatoes along with sauteed green beans paired with a 2016 zinfandel. As a reminder, Frank and I love 2016 vintage wines that benefitted from a near-perfect growing season and harvest. Alexander Valley's 2016 Estate 100% zinfandel from the land of zin, Alexander Valley American Viticultural Area, was proof of a stellar year. Alexander Valley Vineyard's zinfandels have evolved from Harry Wetzel’s

original "Sin Zin," to second release "Temptation," to third release "Redemption," to the present fourth-generation "Estate Zin" with jammy and spicy fruit flavors created by American oak fermentation and aging. At our table, the fourth course featuring grilled petit filet mignon paired with 2018 ‘Organic’ Cabernet Sauvignon, was equally liked as the third course. The organic 100% cabernet sauvignon was sourced from a small estate plot and is aged 24 months creating bright acidity and soft tannins. “Cabernet sauvignon along with chardonnay, merlot, and zinfandel are best suited for the American Viticultural Area and what Alexander Valley Vineyards focuses on growing," McDonald said. Additionally, Kary Favish, The Crosby Baker, spoiled guests with coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate for dessert. Perhaps one of the largest sustainability efforts at Alexander Valley Vineyards is its wine caves. In 1997, Hank embarked on a 7,000-square-foot wine cave project with perfect humidity and temperatures to accommodate the growing production in a sustainable manner. The caves later expanded to 25,000 square feet to handle the 700 acres planted. Winemaking is under the leadership of Kevin Hall who joined in 1998 and was named the 2018 Sonoma Winemaker of the year. More info at avvwine.com.

We discovered and found a gem, Sextant Winery, nestled in “Old Edna,” a historic town established in 1909. We had the good fortune of meeting Amy Griffith, VIP Relations Director, who gave us a tour of the property, a collection of original buildings from the era. The main tasting room and gourmet deli are operated from an original structure, providing a unique and charming ambiance. Owners and winemakers, Craig and Nancy Stroller, first established their roots in the industry through Sunridge Nurseries, combining their experience and love of wine creating Sextant wines.

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad Village Association has recognized Colleen Margis as the Carlsbad Village Association Volunteer of the Year. The Volunteer Ambassador program members do everything from canvassing the downtown businesses with informational flyers to running raffle tables to helping vendors for an outdoor event and more. The CVA praised Margis for her large part in Carlsbad Village Association's resiliency during the difficult past two years. When the pandemic hit and closed down CVA's State Street Farmers' Market, the only way to eventually reopen was with a safe reopening plan and strict safety protocols in place. That meant blocking entrances and initially only letting 75 people in at a time for socially distanced shopping that had to be manned by volunteers. It meant using caution tape to encase the entire market which took quite a bit of time. It meant manning specific exits to control the flow of traffic in and out throughout the 4-hour shopping window. It meant posting safety protocol signs to all 50 booth canopies. It was an arduous set of tasks every week, but Margis was there ev-

ery single week, month after month, without fail, to help keep the market open. This volunteer also helped Carlsbad Village Association reopen the Makers Market in December of 2020 by using the same skills, creating a market that kept people safe, masked and socially distanced at the event. During this 2021 holiday season, Margis also came up with the idea of locally-curated gift baskets showcasing products from the Farmers' Market, for people who wanted to share the gift of good food and Carlsbad with others. The CVA's Open House is right around the corner on March 10 at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, 3075 Carlsbad Blvd. with the introduction of a brand new Volunteer Ambassador program.

Scripps Research discovery points to possible driver of Parkinson’s By Staff

LA JOLLA — Parkinson’s disease may be driven in part by cell stress-related biochemical events that disrupt a key cellular cleanup system, leading to the spread of harmful protein aggregates in the brain, according to a new study from scientists at Scripps Research. The discovery, published in The Journal of Neuroscience in February 2022, offers a clear and testable hypothesis about the progression of Parkinson’s disease, and may lead to treatments capable of significantly slowing or even stopping it. “We think our findings about this apparent disease-driving process are important for developing compounds that can specifically inhibit the process of disease spread in the brain,” says study senior author Stuart Lipton, MD, PhD, Step Family Endowed Chair, founding co-director of the Neurodegeneration New Medicines Center, and professor inthe Department of Molecular Medicine at Scripps Research. Parkinson’s disease affects roughly one million people in the United States. Its precise trigger is unknown, but it entails the deaths of neurons in a characteristic sequence through key brain regions. The killing of one small set of dopamine-producing

neurons in the midbrain leads to the classic Parkinsonian tremor and other movement impairments. Harm to other brain regions results in various other disease signs including dementia in late stages of Parkinson’s. A closely related syndrome in which dementia occurs early in the disease course is called Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), and affects about 1.4 million people in the U.S. In both diseases, affected neurons contain abnormal protein aggregations, known as Lewy bodies, whose predominant ingredient is a protein called alpha-synuclein. Prior studies have shown that alpha-synuclein aggregates can spread from neuron to neuron in Parkinson’s and LBD, apparently transmitting the disease process through the brain. But precisely how alpha-synuclein aggregates build up and spread in this way has been unclear. One clue, uncovered by Lipton’s lab and others in prior research, is that the Parkinson’s/LBD disease process generates highly reactive nitrogen-containing molecules including nitric oxide. In principle, these reactive nitrogen molecules could disrupt important cellular systems, including “housekeeping” systems that normally keep protein

aggregates under control. In the new study, the Scripps Research team demonstrated the validity of this idea by showing that a type of nitrogen-molecule reaction called S-nitrosylation can affect an important cellular protein called p62, triggering the buildup and spread of alphasynuclein aggregates. The p62 protein normally assists in autophagy, a waste-management system

BitConnect founder indicted in alleged $2 billion Ponzi scheme By City News Service

REGION — A grand jury indictment was returned Feb. 25 charging the founder of cryptocurrency company BitConnect with federal crimes for his role in allegedly defrauding investors out of more than $2 billion, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in San Diego. Satishkumar Kurjibhai Kumbhani, 36, of Surat, Gujarat, India, is accused in what the U.S. Attorney's Office said is believed to be the largest cryptocurrency fraud ever criminally charged. Prosecutors say BitConnect investors were misled by the company's claims that it used proprietary technology -- known as the ``BitConnect Trading Bot'' and ``Volatility Software'' -- to turn investors' money into huge returns. In reality, BitConnect operated like a Ponzi scheme, which used investor funds to repay other BitConnect investors, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Kumbhani is also charged in a separate alleged scheme with artificially inflating the price of BitConnect's digital currency -- called BitConnect Coin or BCC -- and through his promoters, create the appearance that there was an increased demand for BCC. Prosecutors also allege

he operated an unlicensed money transmitting business and took part in an international money laundering conspiracy in which Bitcoin and BCC transfers with investors and cryptocurrency purchasers were made with proceeds of the fraud. Glenn Arcaro, who officials say was BitConnect's top promoter in the United States, pleaded guilty to

federal charges last year for his role in the scheme. He is scheduled to be sentenced in May. Investor victims were encouraged to visit www. justice.gov/usao-sdca /usv-glenn-arcaro-21cr02542twr for information on their rights as a victim, the ability to submit a victim impact statement and to identify themselves as a potential victim.

that helps cells get rid of potentially harmful protein aggregates. The researchers found evidence that in cell and animal models of Parkinson’s, p62 is S-nitrosylated at abnormally high levels in affected neurons. This alteration of p62 inhibits autophagy, causing a buildup of alpha-synuclein aggregates. The buildup of aggregates, in turn, leads to the secretion of the aggregates by affected

neurons, and some of these aggregates are taken up by nearby neurons. “The process we observed seems very similar to what is seen in Parkinson’s and LBD brains,” said study first author Chang-Ki Oh, PhD, a staff scientist in the Lipton laboratory. The researchers also tested postmortem brains of LBD patients, and again found that levels of S-nitrosylated p62 were abnor-

mally high in affected brain areas — supporting the idea that this process occurs in humans. Lipton and Oh say that S-nitrosylation of proteins becomes more likely in many situations of cellular stress, including the presence of protein aggregates. Thus, this chemical modification of p62 could be a key factor in a self-reinforcing process that not only stresses brain cells beyond their limits, but also spreads the source of stress to other brain cells. The team is now working to develop drug-like compounds that specifically inhibit the Snitrosylation of p62. Although it would take years to develop such compounds as potential commercial drugs, they could, in principle, slow the Parkinson’s/LBD disease process or prevent its further spread in the brain after it begins, Lipton says. “S-Nitrosylation of p62 Inhibits Autophagic Flux to Promote — Synuclein Secretion and Spread in Parkinson’s Disease and Lewy Body Dementia” was co-authored by Chang-Ki Oh, Nima Dolatabadi, Tomohiro Nakamura, and Stuart Lipton, of Scripps Research; Piotr Cieplak, Maria Diaz-Meco and Jorge Moscat of Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute; and John Nolan of the Scintillon Institute in San Diego.

MARCH 4, 2022

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to reassess important relationships, both personal and professional, to see where problems might exist and how they can be overcome. Keep communication lines open. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s not easy to bring order to a chaotic situation, whether it’s in the workplace or at home. But if anyone can do it, you can. A pleasant surprise awaits you by week’s end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful that you don’t make an upcoming decision solely on the word of those who might have their own reasons for wanting you to act as they suggest. Check things out for yourself. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A personal relationship that seems to be going nowhere could be restarted once you know why it stalled. An honest discussion could result in some surprising revelations. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That unexpected attack of self-doubt could be a way of warning yourself to go slow before making a career-changing decision. Take more time to do a closer study of the facts. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A workplace problem needs your attention now, before it deteriorates to a point beyond repair. A trusted third party could be helpful in closing the gaps that have opened.

TRIVIA TEST ANSWERS

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A recent family situation could give rise to a new problem. Keep an open mind and avoid making judgments about anyone’s motives until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Rely on your always-sharp intuition to alert you to potential problems with someone’s attempt to explain away the circumstances behind a puzzling incident. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although you still need to do some snipping of those lingering loose ends from a past project, you can begin moving on to something else. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With your self-confidence levels rising, you should feel quite comfortable with agreeing to take on a possibly troublesome, but potentially well-rewarded, situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Travel is favored, both for business and for fun. The end of the week brings news about an upcoming project that could lead toward that promised career change. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might feel suddenly overwhelmed by a flood of responsibilities. But if you deal with each one in its turn, you’ll soon be able to hold your head above water and move on. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of offering comfort as well as guidance. You would do well in the healing arts. © 2022 King Features Synd., Inc.

lover, who enjoyed a pint with a friend while waiting for her husband to join them. “We are Thursday regulars,” Calverts said. “We come every Thursday for the rotating beer choices. I love the IPAs. My husband comes for the hazies.” They had plenty to chose from. Even with the exceptional variety of beer styles available, Hudson makes sure that the IPAs and Hazy IPAs are well represented. I tried the El Fremonto IPA, a collaboration between Fremont and El Segundo, upon recommendation. While billed as a West Coast IPA, it was more my style of IPA: balanced, fresh, citrusy, and a bit green–but not overly bitter. The Brewers Tap Room boasts several nearby eateries and encourages patrons to enjoy a meal while visiting. The easiest–and team favorite–is Los Tacos right next door. Tacos and beer — a no-brainer, right? Jeff Spanier is a cohost of the “I Like Beer the Podcast.” Follow him on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
