VISTA — Jade Janks

of Solana Beach was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 25 years on Monday for the 2020 murder of Thomas Merriman, her former stepfather and founder of the Butterfly Farms in Encinitas.

Judge Robert J. Kearney handed down the sentence at the Vista courthouse after hearing statements from Janks, 39, and impact statements from friends and family of both Janks and Merriman, who was 64 when he was killed.

Teen

hospitalized after e-bike, vehicle collision

CARLSBAD — A 14-year-old girl is recovering from injuries after she was struck by a vehicle while riding her electric bicycle on March 1 on Tamarack Avenue, according to the Carlsbad Police Department.

The incident occurred at 6:05 p.m. when a vehicle turned left onto James Drive off Tamarack Avenue before colliding with the e-bike, Lt. Alonzo Delevasco said.

The case remains under investigation.

According to other sources, the girl suffered a fractured skull, concussion and several broken teeth. She was transported to a local hospital and released later that night, Delevasco said.

Law enforcement did not disclose the young cyclist’s name.

“They were turning into James Drive, making a left turn and collided,” he said. “We’re still trying to interview some witnesses.”

Three of Merriman’s brothers and three friends, including Butterfly Farms co-founder Pat Flanagan, pleaded with the judge to hand down the maximum sentence of 25 years to life.

“We respectfully ask you to help us deliver justice and do what is good and right for Tom,” Merriman’s older brother Tim wrote. “There should be no leniency for the convicted’s selfish, planned and brutal act. We ask for the maximum sentence that the law provides.”

Janks was convicted of first-degree murder for the killing of Merriman following a 10-day trial in December. Prosecutors Teresa Pham and Jorge Del Portillo argued that the So

VILLAGE ‘SWEET SPOT” IS A SENSATION

Remember the candy you ate as a kid? We’re talking nostalgic fun; the small delights you don’t normally find today like Bit-O-Honey, Beemans, Clove and Black Jack Chewing Gum, Abba Zabba, Lemon Heads, Fire Balls, rock candy and wax lips. Or how about a good old-fashioned malt or a root beer float? If you are in the mood for something familiar and sentimental, then the SWEET SPOT CARLSBAD is an absolute must for you!

Previously Linda’s Yogurt & Deli (since the 1980’s), the SWEET SPOT CARLSBAD re-opened with a new purpose in mind this past July. Husband and wife team, Amy and Richard Tovar, turned faith into action and created a little slice of heaven that caters to young and old alike with the sweetest of intentions.

“I like being behind the counter and seeing the joy on people’s faces,” said Richard about watching his customers as they enjoy their frozen confections or handfuls of candy. “We have regulars who come every week, as part of their routine. We didn’t know it was going to be this special.”

Linda’s Yogurt & Deli has been a staple for beachgoers and Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort time share owners due to its beach-close location next to the resort. Year after year, customers would return. Some initially came there as children and are now returning with children of their own.

“We are getting to meet generational families and creating new experiences with them,” Richard said.

What started as a desire to expand Amy’s hair salon, The Hair Spa, next door, turned into something much more after a chance visit to a venerable candy shop in Big Bear.

“God is a huge part of this journey,” said Amy. “Originally we were going to expand the salon, but something kept us from moving forward. We prayed for an answer on a trip to Big Bear. We’re now so grateful that we opened up the SWEET SPOT instead.”

Specializing in gourmet chocolates, including a large assortment of truffles, chocolate covered honeycomb, turtles, and melt-in-your-mouth caramels, as well as “scoop by the pound” candy, over 20 flavors of ice cream (with a classic topping bar), homemade waffle cones, and even frozen yogurt, there is something here for everyone. Come see what you find in one of the giant barrels of saltwater taffy or discover the latest in Gummy Sharks, Sour Gummy Belts, or Jelly Bellies.

This family-owned and operated confectionery, the SWEET SPOT, might be new to the Tovar’s, but it has very deep roots in the Village that they will nurture for years to come. Don’t be surprised if you find Richard and Amy’s 12-year-old daughter learning the ropes and running the register while Mom and Dad are scooping ice cream.

Tri-City interim CEO puts focus on community

OCEANSIDE — Emergency physician and chief medical officer Dr. Gene Ma has been named interim CEO of Tri-City Healthcare District.

The Tri-City Board approached Ma about taking over the temporary interim CEO while the search for a permanent candidate continues.

“Dr. Ma is a proven leader with more than two decades of service to the medical center,” said Board Chair Rocky Chavez.

As interim CEO, Ma plans to take a data-driven approach with future initiatives to improve operations while also keeping an ear open to what the community needs and wants from its local hospital.

“Our ability to listen and incorporate what the community needs from Tri-City as a hospital is going to be essential in how we move forward with directives we set forth for ourselves,” Ma said.

The Tri-City board has hired HealthSearch Partners, a Dallas-based executive search firm, to help in a nationwide search for a permanent president and CEO. The search for a new CEO could take several months, and Ma could still be chosen for the title.

Ma has been an emergency department physician at Tri-City for over 20 years and is a 10-time honoree as one of San Diego’s Top Doctors in Emergency Medicine. He has also served in several adminis-

Council explores harsher penalties for sales to minors

tailers selling products to underage customers in Vista could see harsher penalties on the horizon, including increased fines and the likelihood of license suspension and revocation

At a Feb. 28 City Council meeting, several community members shared concerns about how easy it is for those under 21 to obtain vapes and other tobacco products in Vista due to retailers not checking IDs and urged the city to increase penalties.

With unanimous support from the council, city staff was directed to begin crafting an ordinance amending the city’s code to be approved in the future.

“I have a lot of friends who are minors, and it kind of breaks my heart to see them smoke tobacco and get vapes. I ask them, ‘Where do you get this? You are literally a child,’ and they’re like, ‘I know this place that doesn't card; I know this place that will just give it to me,’” said Yeseña Hernandez, 23. “I’m just concerned for my family, my friends, everyone younger than me.”

In the past three years, 10 different tobacco retailers in the city have earned violations for selling to minors, resulting in citations for clerks and required staff training, according to city spokesman Fred Tracey. In addition, one of these retailers earned a second violation and saw their license suspended for 30 days.

Currently, penalties for retailers increase for all repeated violations in three years to a 90-day suspension for a third offense, a one-year suspension for a fourth offense, and license revocation for a fifth offense. The clerk making the sale faces a $200 fine for the first violation, $500 for a second violation, and $1,000 for a third.

Officials are tipped off to these practices by conducting decoy operations, where minors are sent into tobacco or alcohol establishments to test whether retailers will sell them pro-

schools made their voices heard regarding the dangers of tobacco, saying they support the adoption of more substantial penalties to de-incentivize retailers from selling to minors.

“Many times, it’s super easy to obtain these types of items, and I see many youth that easily get it,” said Daniel Ventura, president of the STAY Club at Vista High School. “I have a little sister at Vista Magnet, and it would be sad to see her get addicted to these things.”

Ventura added that students at Vista High have grown accustomed to the fire alarm being frequently set off due to vaping products, which poses a danger if an actual fire happens, but students don't take the alarm seriously.

hibited products.

Councilmember Katie Melendez said the current system creates little accountability for the business owner since financial penalties are shouldered solely by the clerks. In the future, she advocated for code enforcement officers returning to stores to issue citations directly to retailers.

“When a young person is sold cigarettes or vapes, it can change the course of their life,” Melendez said. “It can destroy their health and their future, and I believe we need to have more accountability for our retailers and stronger language in our municipal code.”

Council members said they would support increasing the first-offense penalty to $750 and enforcing an immediate license suspension, with increased penalties for additional offenses. However, when crafting the ordinance, city staff must ensure the proposed

measures don’t exceed the $1,000 penalty limit permitted under state law.

“I really think it’s the aggressive increase in fining, the suspension of li-

censes that will really make a change, hopefully, on these retailers,” said Councilmember Joe Green.

New cars all electric by 2035? Maybe not

California government bureaucrats call it the “Advanced Clean Car II Rule,” last August’s update to the state’s prior edict mandating that all new cars sold here be all-electric or plug-in hybrids by 2035. Between now and then, other benchmarks are also set, starting with 35% of new cars sold being EVs starting in 2026, just three years from today.

Storms highlight water issues

Do the heavy rains and snowfall we have experienced this winter mean we can start feeling relaxed about the way we use water in 2023?

Well, no, unfortunately. We had a lot of rain, but it was, in an important way, the wrong kind of rain.

Heavy precipitation of the type we’ve experienced in California at the turn of the year does provide some temporary relief in increasing the volume of water in our reservoirs, but it’s not enough to mitigate against the unprecedented drought conditions we’ve experienced during past years.

According to the EPA, instances of heavy precipitation, where rainfall substantially exceeds the expected average, have been steadily increasing since the 1980s.

Unusually heavy rainfall brings with it potential dangers, which “include crop damage, soil erosion, and an increase in flood risk… which in turn can lead to injuries, drownings, and other flooding-related effects on health,” the EPA says. “In addition, runoff from precipitation can impair water quality as pollut-

ants deposited on land wash into water bodies.”

That can include trash and chemicals, sediment and heavy metals, all of which get washed toward lower-lying areas, through sewers, and towards rivers and oceans. Here in Southern California, so much of the rain that fell found its way quickly to the ocean, rather than being absorbed by soil and used by our plants and trees.

The Colorado River, which provides about a quarter of the water for Southern California, didn’t see a huge benefit from the storms, and our groundwater aquifers could require a long period to fully recover from the drought.

That’s the trouble with deluges. The vast majority of rainwater that falls is wasted. It’s not captured and used by us. Instead, it overwaters our landscapes, which are prepared for regular, steady watering, not torrential downpours.

We simply don’t have the infrastructure in place to capture and retain the amount of rainfall required to make a significant longterm impact on our usable water storage supplies. There is a finite amount of water in the world, and we

need to be able to make the very most of it when we have access to it.

If extreme weather events like this are occurring with more frequency, we need to be prepared. We need to rethink our relationship with water. We can’t treat it like it’s always there, just waiting for us to use. We have to be prepared to capture it and process it and use it efficiently, and intelligently.

That could involve investing in new infrastructure to ensure we maximize our water capture potential. But even if that water collection infrastructure is in place, we need to be smart about our water use. We need to irrigate efficiently, and we need to recycle and reuse water wherever possible. We need to make the most of technology and practices that help us to monitor and make the very most of the water we do have. Water is our most precious resource, so let’s ensure it’s conserved and utilized wisely. That should be a top priority for all of us.

Protect Act a threat to safe communities

Residents and citizens will want to be on the lookout for legislation called the Protect Act.

The Protect Act is a misleading name for newly proposed legislation currently working its way through the city of San Diego from the still active “defund the police” movement.

Proposed by radical activists and one lone San Diego City Council member who believe “criminals are victims,” the Protect Act is an attack on the police’s ability to do their important and critical work.

The Protect Act’s sole aim is to “stop the stop,” by stopping all traffic stops currently made by the San Diego police, and would totally hamper the ability of the police to prevent crimes and detain suspicious individuals.

Police would no longer

be able to pull over drunk drivers, suspicious vehicles or unregistered cars, as an example.

Supporters of the Protect Act believe routine traffic stops are “racist” and therefore must be halted and banned.

Opponents of the Protect Act (www.StopProtectAct.com) support law and order, safe communities and local law enforcement.

Why would law-abiding citizens want to see the erosion of public safety and put limits on law and order that limit policing? That’s a fair question.

Most importantly, this legislation is currently in place today in embattled San Francisco, Berkeley, Los Angeles, Seattle and Philadelphia, all left-leaning cities, and has the chance to spread further if residents and citizens don’t engage and put a stop to it.

Since the rule passed, it’s been a theme for folks who like to bash California, from Texas to Florida to Ohio. They call it just one more unrealistic regulation making California a very tough place for businesses to operate.

But it might not happen. And not merely because of doubts about the state’s electric grid capacity to handle all that extra demand. With little fanfare, more than a dozen Republican state attorneys general just the other day filed a new court document claiming California’s move and the federal law that enabled it are unconstitutional.

The top government lawyers from Texas, Ohio, West Virginia and others claim in their lawsuit that the waiver in the 1970 Clean Air Act giving California the right to regulate smog emissions from cars sold here “puts it on an uneven playing field compared to other states in violation of the interstate commerce clause of the Constitution,” also giving this state unique power to regulate global climate change.

california focus tom elias

general get their way. They are working in the federal court of appeals for the District of Columbia, from which both judges and cases often eventually move up to the Supreme Court. And the Supreme Court has been notably inconsistent on states’ rights since Trump’s three appointees provided it with a 6-3 conservative majority.

That court has consistently upheld the California waiver in the Clean Air Act, but never with its current membership, dominated by conservative Republicans.

So the survival of the waiver is not certain, despite the court’s putting abortion and other matters back under state jurisdiction. Not from a court whose majority justices took firearms policy out of state hands by making their preferences on carrying guns and other issues apply everywhere.

It’s uncertain whether, when this case inevitably reaches them next year or in 2024, the Trump-appointed justices will essentially validate his attempt to take away California’s unique authority, which has led to both millions of cleaner cars and much cleaner air nationwide.

If the Protect Act were to pass in the city of San Diego, it will make Encinitas less safe, while eventually making its way to the Encinitas City Council’s agenda (and elsewhere).

This is a call to action to tell Todd Gloria, mayor of San Diego, that this is unacceptable legislation.

Encinitans strongly support our local police/ sheriff and want law and order, not politics, to be the basis of local policing. Encinitas is a safer city than most, let’s keep it that way.

Let’s support neighboring cities to Just Say NO now to the problematic Protect Act, and protect San Diego County residents from the same failed policies elsewhere in the state and nation. Stop the Protect Act now.

The Clean Air Act waiver, first signed by then-Republican President Richard Nixon and later renewed by every president except Donald Trump, has been the authority behind many edicts from the California Air Resources Board. Those rulings, starting in the early ’70s, led to innovations like early smog control devices, catalytic converters, hybrid cars, hydrogen cars, EVs and plug-ins. Each move was protested at first by almost all automakers as either impossible or prohibitively expensive, but all have turned out fine.

The California rules carry extra clout that infuriates officials of some other states for two reasons: 1) the California car market is so large that manufacturers who want to sell nationwide figure it’s cheaper to make all their cars conform to California rules than to build different models for different places, and 2) 16 other states and the District of Columbia now automatically adopt California’s automotive rules five years after they become effective here. Those states make up 40% of the American vehicle market.

None of that will last if the Republican attorneys

For the waiver was originally granted by Nixon’s administration because of California’s unique geography, with many of its large cities, from Los Angeles to Sacramento to Bakersfield and Fresno, sitting in basins where mountains or large ranges of hills hold smog in place for longer periods than in flatter environments, where any old wind can quickly blow it away.

That’s why air is often dirtier in those California cities than in places like Cincinnati and Seattle, Portland, New Orleans or New York.

Will the Supreme Court recognize that unique environments require unique tactics to retain their healthy environments? Or will the justices go along with states like West Virginia and Texas, which don’t mind smog so much because it doesn’t hang around very long.

At stake here is a continuation of the drop in diseases from lung cancer to emphysema that has paralleled the advent of cleaner cars and light trucks. No one can yet know whether the Supreme Court majority will heed any of that.

Carlsbad manufacturer gets $13M for lithium battery production

State grants help company address growing demand

— The race for lithium, which helps power everything from cell phones and laptops to digital cameras and electric vehicles, is the modern era’s gold rush.

And Carlsbad-based American Lithium Energy, or ALE, hit paydirt this week after receiving two grants totaling $13.2 million from the California Energy Commission.

The high-performance lithium battery producer will receive $10.2 million from Zero-Emissions Transportation Manufacturing for electric vehicle batteries to help meet state emissions goals and $3 million from the California Realizing Accelerated Manufacturing Production program in April 2023.

The company also received independent matching funds from private equity partners, according to William Hadala, business director for American Lithium Energy.

Jiang Fan, who founded ALE and holds a doctorate in solid state chemistry from Arizona State University, said the discovery of lithium deposits near the Salton Sea in the Imperial Valley (now called “Lithi-

um Valley”) had prompted a rush to mine the valuable mineral.

Increased domestic access to more lithium will give Fan's company and other U.S. manufacturers a competitive advantage when assembling cells to consolidate into battery packs for electric vehicles or EVs.

“By the end of this project, not only will we provide product to the market like the military space, but we will also work with

EV battery companies,” Fan said.

The lithium deposits also help the Department of Defense, which has relied heavily on lithium-ion batteries in numerous applications, from drones and vehicles to wearables for warfighters.

“Northrop Grumman has collaborated with ALE on the development of advanced Li-ion battery cells for use on prototype aircraft, which have high-specific power and energy

requirements,” said Jeff Knowles, an electrical engineer at Northrop Grumman, in a recent release.

“ALE’s industry-leading battery cell technology affords both expanded voltage range and useable capacity, as well as pulsed power capability that are enabling features for advanced aircraft.”

From a national security perspective, Fan said “Lithium Valley” plays a vital role in securing a U.S.-based supply chain,

protecting the U.S. market if “bad actor” states in Asia cut off supply chains due to a political conflict or military confrontation.

The Carlsbad company started with contracts through the defense and energy departments, with the former focused on highgrade technology for warfighters. However, over the years, ALE has evolved into other sectors along with mastering its technology and chemistry.

With the current grant

from the state, the company can scale production to approximately 1.5 million battery cells per year.

And as the push for more electric vehicles grows, Hadala said the company has a long-term production goal of 50 million to 100 million cells annually.

According to Hadala, manufacturing automation will allow for faster production, starting at 20 cells

School may close due to risk of sinking

Reynolds Elementary may close due to safety concerns after soil tests revealed the presence of water in the ground underneath the school, rendering the property unsuitable for renovations.

School district administrators alerted families earlier this month of the soil test results collected as part of mandatory preparations for the campus’s modernization project. Last year, the school board approved the project to demolish and rebuild the school.

Earlier this year, a team of engineers found the soil condition on campus unsuitable for the planned reconstruction due to soil liquefaction, a loss of ground strength that temporarily causes the soil to liquefy.

If an earthquake occurs, campus buildings could sink or incur other structural damages.

During the tests, holes drilled into the campus ground found water at a depth of 10.5 feet, possibly due to the Foss Lake wetland area adjacent to the school. Water under the

Full Moon Poets presents The La Paloma New Moon Poetry Slam

ground surface creates potentially liquefiable soil, which is not conducive for new construction due to potential earthquake damage and mitigation costs.

Since the school was built in 1986, the industry’s understanding of soil liquefaction and soil code requirements has changed significantly.

According to engineers, although the school buildings are structurally safe as they are, they are no longer up to code. As a result, if an earthquake were to occur, the buildings would likely remain intact but could sink.

While there are measures to help mitigate the effects of liquefaction, such

as installing non-liquefiable stone columns underneath buildings, there is no guarantee these techniques will prevent damage during an earthquake.

“Staff is recommending that the board close the school,” said Donald Bendz, the school district's communications director.

Bendz said the news is disappointing considering the district’s “wonderful plans” to rebuild the school.

Reynolds Elementary nearly closed two years ago with plans to merge the school population with either Libby or Del Dios Elementary Schools. After significant parental pushback, the board opted to rebuild the school for nearly

$50 million. If the district goes forward with the reconstruction, the project could cost as much as $100 million with the additional soil liquefaction mitigation.

A special meeting is planned for the board to discuss the future of Reynolds Elementary on March 13 at 6 p.m. at Chavez Middle School. The board will make its final decision on March 14 at the regular board meeting.

If Reynolds is closed, students will be moved to other nearby school sites. Many parents are upset about the plan to close Reynolds. A protest is planned for 11 a.m. on March 10 in front of the district office.

the third in the area since last summer including one that killed Christine Embree sparking a citywide state of emergency regarding e-bikes and vehicles. Another accident occurred weeks before Embree’s death when a speeding vehicle raced east on Tamarack Avenue when it lost control, veering into electrical transformer and smashing into several parked cars.

Residents have also pressured the city and City Council to act to reduce speeds along Tamarack Avenue. One action from the city was to install a “hawk light” at the intersection of Tamarack Avenue and Valley Drive, which is activated during school hours. However, residents have pushed back on the effectiveness of the light.

In August 2022, the City Council approved $2 million in emergency funding to pay for police overtime, street projects and a public outreach campaign. The police have been working on warnings and citations for motorists and cyclists, while a street project on Tamarack will consist of speed humps, raised crosswalks and other tools to slow traffic.

The city also partnered with the San Diego County Bike Coalition to promote the city’s Safer Streets Together campaign, which is a response to a more than 200% increase in bike and e-bike collisions citywide since 2019.

The campaign, though,

urges safe practices from motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. The city has been pushing a pledge for residents to follow all laws, encouraging slower driving, putting away cellphones, stopping, wearing helmets and reflective gear, crossing at crosswalks and others.

Since declaring a local emergency, the city increased enforcement, held training classes and educated community members about traffic safety rules. The campaign is designed to encourage safe behavior on the road, such as slowing down, sharing the road and riding a bike in the same direction as traffic.

In March 2022, the City Council tightened its e-bike ordinance due to rising collision rates.

Since 2019, e-bike collisions have skyrocketed to 186 reported incidents, according to the Carlsbad Police Department, a majority

of which were determined to be the operator’s fault. Of those incidents, 163 resulted in injury.

Law enforcement also reported 99 collisions from Jan. 2020 through July 2021. Among those reported incidents, e-bike or mobility device operators were at fault 72 times, Sgt. Scott Meritt told the council. He also reported the number of collisions increased from 39 in 2020 to 63 in 2021.

Marissa Kawecki, deputy city attorney, said in March 2022 the ordinance establishes definitions for e-bicycles and other regulated mobility devices and prohibitions on where they can be used.

The ordinance requires riders to use due care, reduce speed when necessary for safety, follow all rules of the road and dismount their mobility device on narrow trails (less than 5 feet wide) when within 50 feet of a pedestrian or horseback rider.

Del Mar, nonprofit protect at-risk renters

For the past two and a half years, Tracy Mull has lived in limbo, wondering if she will be able to maintain her rental housing subsidy or if she, her teenage son and her dog will be forced to move out of the community she has lived in for nearly four decades.

Mull, 57, is one of four Del Mar residents who rely upon the city of Del Mar’s rental assistance program, a longtime subsidy initiative that city officials say has become too expensive to operate in recent years.

Peace Pies plans Leucadia reopening

Raw food cafe raising money to rebuild after fire

after a fire took out its Leucadia cafe along Coast Highway 101, Peace Pies is preparing a return to North County.

Peace Pies, an eatery specializing in raw vegan and gluten-free foods, started out making pie and pizza crusts for farmers' markets in 2007 before opening two locations in Ocean Beach and Leucadia.

The cafe became a local favorite over the years, offering unique vegan and gluten-free pasta, pizzas, tacos, nori rolls, and other global dishes.

“We take fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts and manipulate them into traditional entrees,” said owner JP Alfred.

Tragedy struck in September 2019 when a fire broke out at the Mozy Cafe and consumed the building that housed Peace Pies, Shatto and Sons Custom T-Shirts and the Cali Life art gallery.

For the last three and a half years, loyal custom-

ers made the trek to Ocean Beach to visit Peace Pies, with many asking when, if ever, the cafe would return to Leucadia.

“People want us up there,” Alfred said.

Since the fire, Alfred has been working with the property owner, Jim Shatto, to bring back Peace Pies.

In September 2022, Shatto broke ground on a reconstruction project at the same Leucadia plot once home to his t-shirt shop.

The Shatto building will be home to four businesses, including Peace Pies, which will return to operate in a restaurant space with an outdoor patio on the backside of the building.

“We’ve been working on it for a very long time,” Alfred said.

Alfred said the new space will be “bright, beautiful and clean” and nearly double the size before the fire.

Though reconstruction is almost complete, there are still likely months of paperwork and other technical matters to attend to before Peace Pies can reopen. As a result, an official reopening date has yet to be determined.

A GoFundMe created by organizer Brielle Martell is collecting donations to help aid Peace Pies in its efforts to rebuild and reopen the Leucadia location.

“Please help us reopen our Peace Pies Encinitas location and get us back up and running to help serve the community with good vibes and raw vegan food,” Martell said.

Alfred is grateful for the strong community support his business has received from North County over the years and looks forward to returning to Encinitas.

“We’re super excited,” he said.

The program was planned to sunset on June 30, with no alternative housing options in place for the four residents, all of whom are disabled. The threat of homelessness has hung over Mull’s head as she has tried and failed to find an alternative housing option that doesn’t have a multi-year waitlist.

“I don’t necessarily have an exit plan. When you make $17,000 a year, you don’t have a lot of float,” Mull told the City Council on Monday. “One of the things that we actually practiced was, how do we sleep in the car? How do we make a home when there is no home to go to? I don’t know if any of you guys have ever car camped or even camped in a tent … it’s not an easy situation,”

Following months of conversations with Del Mar Community Connections, the nonprofit overseeing the program, city officials agreed on Monday to continue the program indefinitely and enter into a new funding model that will come partially from the city and partially through community fundraising.

This arrangement will remain in place until all four current participants have voluntarily exited the program, and no new participants will be accepted.

The new funding arrangement requires the city to continue funding 50% of the program’s costs — an annual total of $40,000 rather than the current cost of around $95,000 — with the remainder to come from community fundraising.

per minute and eventually ramping up to producing a cell every second.

The company’s annual cell-production goal of 1.5 million battery cells, a relatively small amount compared to companies like Samsung and LG, will allow ALE lead time to eventually hit those larger numbers.

“As a result, the company is now moving from research and development and engineering and prototypes to full-scale production,” Hadala said.

“This grant will allow us to go from making tens of thousands of cells per year to our target of 1.5 million cells per year in the next 18 months.”

“All we are here to talk about is, ‘how do we protect the four existing participants in this program?’ There will not be a reopening of the program, and there will not be a reopening of the waitlist,” said DMCC President Bob Gans. “We’re proposing a public-private partnership between the community and the city that will allow not for a restart of the program but for an orderly wind-down that is fair and humane and makes sense.”

The City Council’s unanimous approval elicited applause from the audience and hugs between program participants, community members and DMCC leaders.

“This is in some ways exactly what we were looking for, some way that the program could continue, and I really appreciate Del Mar Community Connections for stepping up on this,” said Councilmember Dave Druker.

The rental assistance program started in 1988, has historically been funded entirely by in-lieu housing fees received by the city from developers. However, city officials said the program’s model has become infeasible due to a lack of incoming fees — Del Mar received none of the $25,000 projected annual revenue in the past two years — and the rising cost of running the program itself.

Plans to cancel the program have been in the works since the fall of 2021,

with leaders hoping to discontinue it and transition all participants into new housing by June 2022. However, it was extended to July 2023 after efforts by San Diego County’s Health and Human Services Agency to identify local alternative housing options came up fruitless.

One major obstacle is that participants would first have to exit the program to qualify for additional subsidies or other housing assistance, leaving them vulnerable for an unknown amount of time.

“Due to the unprecedented demand for social service resources and assistance throughout the region, no programs or services that would allow the program participants to stay in Del Mar or find comparable living arrangements in the immediate surrounding area have been identified,” a staff report read.

The uncertainty around

the program for the past few years has also created unease for participants’ landlords, Gans said, which is why it was essential to find a long-term solution.

David Ralph, another program participant, said he would have to move far away if the program were to end. The 70-year-old’s remaining family is in Florida. He has lived in his rent-subsidized housing for over a decade, where he enjoys tending to his well-maintained garden, being near his close friends and living by public transportation, as he can no longer drive.

“I’ll have to find a new place to live, and I don't know where. My community is here in Del Mar, where I have lived most of my adult life,” Ralph told the council. “Having to leave my home would truly break my heart. I don't know how I could start over in a new place … How would you feel if you were in this situation?”

Gans said any fundraising shortfall would be made up from the nonprofit’s reserves, although he anticipates that the support from the community would not allow this to happen.

On the other hand, city officials agreed that if the city saw in-lieu fee revenues return, they would be obligated to direct all those funds toward the program.

“We’ve come up with what we think is a compromise proposal that helps achieve some of the city’s

Bad with names small talk

Enjoy one from the archives.

The minute that pregnancy test stick turns blue, potential parents seem to lose all sense of logic. I strongly suggest you take an extra moment to consider the following things before you name your offspring.

Firstly, if a rude nickname can be made from a name, some child will shout it loudly across the playground.

Remember that teachers, future bosses and co-workers will have to be able to pronounce that name without any help from a phonetic guide.

Consider whether your child will want to go through life bearing some pretentious version of a perfectly pleasant, common moniker.

Remember people want to know if your child is a girl or a boy without major research being done.

Remember that while you are a teenager, and sometimes well beyond, what you want most in the world is to blend in, not stand out, and certainly not because your name is “spelled weird.”

If you still choose to go forward with something different, please coach your child from an early age to be gracious when it is misspelled or mispronounced.

I know youngsters who get downright abusive if you garble their strange names. I tend to remind them that having a defensive attitude will not make anyone try harder to spell or say a name correctly.

If you name your child

Courtney, it is going to sound just like the other 12 Kort-nees in her homeroom class. It won’t matter if you spell it Koortney, Quartknee or, as I most recently saw it, Courtnae.

And absolutely no one is ever going to spell it right. Ever. The same goes for Mikaela, Michaela, Mikhaila, Mekeyla, Makayla or Mekaila. And then there’s Alyc.

I’d like to blame it on population growth or possibly too much morphine during labor, but it seems there were renegades more than 60 years ago, going for that one-of-a-kind name.

I had a high school friend, Gere, who was frequently pronounced gurrr, but was actually Jerry.

And there was my husband’s family. The woman didn’t even drink, but my mother-in-law — an otherwise lovely lady — took great pride in the fact that each of her four children had names that were “unlike all others.”

She meant well, but my husband, Lon (short for Lonel, which he loathes), is frequently called Ron, Don, Lawn and Lom. His twin, Landa, was assigned to a girls gym class almost every year. (He didn’t actually mind that so much.)

If you consider nothing else, consider the odds that your child’s name will be misspelled in the newspaper. There’s that front-page photo showing your pride-and-joy making that winning shot, and that clever name you constructed is spelled the old-fashioned way.

If you have any plans of future fame for your kids, just name them Bob or Susan, not Bawb, Bobb or Rob, or Suzan, Susin or Soozan, please?

Oh, never mind.

What a lost opportunity! I mean, you’re already talking with me, so why not incorporate a little subtle marketing?

Here’s how I see it: On an average day, I send out 100+ emails for networking, solicitations and project updates. At the bottom of each email is my electronic signature, acting like a business card in cyberspace. It encourages traffic to my website, touts articles I’ve written and potentially adds value to every conversation.

I understand my emails may be forwarded or have a long shelf life. Therefore, I incorporate both the usual items (name, company,

Pretty slick, no?

Of course, it’s important to recognize this isn’t a photograph of me at the beach or drinking a beer. It was done by a skilled portrait photographer and purposely presents a professional image, shows my personality and grabs attention.

Meaning it’s doing exactly what I needed it to do. And the few dollars I paid to have the picture taken was a pittance compared to the value it’s brought to my personal and business worlds.

So … why aren’t you taking advantage of this

His family will need to give him time to adjust to his new life. He can go home with mellow kids, 7 or older, as long as he’s comfortable.

YMCA opens new gymnastics facility

CARLSBAD — It is a new day for the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA’s gymnastics program.

The YMCA christened its new, state-of-the-art 27,400-square foot facility during a ribbon cutting on March 1. The new facility at 2261 Cosmos Court in Carlsbad replaces its longtime facility on Avenida Encinas in Carlsbad that the program called home for 25 years, according to YMCA Regional Director Lauren Hall.

“Gymnastics is one of those sports where kids build confidence, gain experiences, they reach goals,” she said. “And because of how children progress through it … we find it fits within the mission of the Y so well.”

Over the past 13 months, Hall led the charge to find the gymnastics program’s new home. Construction started in June 2022 on a $1.3 million renovation to transform the building into

a single-tenant space.

Gymnastics has long been a staple of the YMCA and is part of the Y’s mission to deliver a healthy and positive environment for its kids and even adults, said Todd Tibbits, CEO of the San Diego County YMCA.

He added that the opening is a further indication that the YMCA is regaining its former position after the organization struggled during the pandemic to hold on to its core members.

Tibbits said the Ecke team led the project with the expectation that the new location will allow for growth and be an opportunity to reach more people. The mission, he said, is to use gymnastics as a catalyst for positive youth development.

“It’s about how we are developing the social and emotional well-being in children,” he said. “And they will receive the best gymnastics instruction in the county.”

The new facility offers gymnastics for all ages, with some participants as young as 6 months, Hall said.

The new facility has two levels, with the upstairs reserved for ages 5 and younger and the downstairs for older and more skilled gymnasts, she said.

As for programming, Hall said, the new building offers tracks for recreational and competitive gymnastics. The recreational component is for fun, helping kids to stay healthy. The competitive route is more intensive.

Hall said the YMCA has a long history of developing top gymnasts in the region, with some reaching the pinnacle in the competitive circuits.

The YMCA is planning to add an aerial arts program in mid-April. Aerial arts has its roots in the circus, where performers would use hoops, hammocks and other equipment.

tion noted that to prevent retailers from selling to minors, the city needs to “make it hurt.”

“They are selling an addictive, toxic substance. Addiction is part of their business model,” said John Bottorf, chief information officer at CleanEarth4Kids.

“The profits these places make outweigh the penalty, and they will never change as long as the penalty is not as harsh as the money they make.”

City staff said they would also analyze potential regulations limiting the number of smoke shops in the city as an additional measure to limit tobacco use.

Vista currently has 70 licensed retailers, equal to around one per every 1,400 city residents.

Such measures have been adopted in other cities like San Francisco, which in 2015 set a cap of 45 retailers per district, and Philadelphia, which limited tobacco retail density to one store per 1,000 residents per planning district in 2017.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST, DATED 11/9/2004. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER On 4/10/2023 at 10:30 AM, CLEAR RECON CORP, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded 11/12/2004 as Instrument No. 2004-1076822 of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of San Diego County, State of CALIFORNIA executed by: KENNETH FETZER, AN UNMARRIED MAN WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH, CASHIER’S CHECK DRAWN ON A STATE OR NATIONAL BANK, A CHECK DRAWN BY A STATE OR FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, OR A CHECK DRAWN BY A STATE OR FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION, SAVINGS ASSOCIATION, OR SAVINGS BANK SPECIFIED IN SECTION 5102 OF THE FINANCIAL CODE AND AUTHORIZED TO DO BUSINESS IN THIS STATE;

AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE EAST COUNTY REGIONAL CENTER BY STATUE, 250 E. MAIN STREET, EL CAJON, CA 92020 all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: MORE ACCURATELY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 226 N INDIANA AVE, VISTA, CA 92084 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $252,039.91 If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any

reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned or its predecessor caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE

TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this

property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO

PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 102199-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO

TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www. clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 102199-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

In years past, Padres would shed pricey stars

expected to finish their careers here.

Is that a positive or a negative?

jay paris

The Padres continue to tune up in spring training with a roster stocked with topshelf, and well-paid, players.

My, what a difference an owner makes.

“It’s amazing what the Padres are doing,” Cardiff’s Barry Axelrod said.

Axelrod is more than a casual observer.

Zippin’ into the monster sports month of March

inside information

felix taverna

The Big Dance is almost here. The warmup for me was watching the NCAA women’s basketball conference tournaments this past weekend. To the point, these women can flat-out play … and are well-coached. Maybe better than the men.

SEC champion and top-ranked South Carolina (32-0) is coached by hall of fame player Dawn Staley, a Philly girl who won a few gold medals for our Olympic teams.

Iowa sharpshooter Caitlin Clark had her 10th career triple-double in the Hawkeyes’ Big Ten championship game rout … and her amazing collegiate career just keeps getting better.

Trust me … you will see some wars on the road to the women’s basketball championship. And I personally think South Carolina’s women’s team could beat some NCAA men’s teams. Or, at least give them a close game.

Now, on to the most exciting three weeks of the sports calendar — March Madness.

Selection Sunday is this Sunday, March 12, with the men’s bracket being unveiled at 3 p.m. (CBS) and the women’s bracket at 5 p.m. (ESPN).

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, the greatest college event ever invented, has provided so many memories —unbelievable finishes and individual performances. You must have yours… here are some of mine:

• Bill Walton (UCLA), 1973 — Walton was almost perfect vs. Memphis State, going 21 of 22 from the field (a time when dunk-

ing wasn’t allowed) for an NCAA championship game record 44 points. He single-handedly destroyed the Tigers, 87-66, giving the Bruins and John Wooden a seventh straight title.

• Houston vs. North Carolina State, 1983 — Jim Valvano’s Wolfpack made one of the most magical title runs in NCAA Tournament history ... what dreams are made of. I must have watched that ESPN 30 for 30 documentary dozens of times.

• Georgetown vs. Villanova, 1985. An instant classic. Considered one of the biggest upsets ever, the eighth-seeded Wildcats shot 90% from the field in an iconic second half to win the title.

• Keith Smart (Indiana), 1987 — Smart’s baseline jumper in the closing seconds beat Syracuse, 7473, in the championship game.

• Jerry Tarkanian (UNLV), 1990 — Tark won his first national championship in a rout of Duke. He told me it was the most electric moment of his coaching career. He lived for that. Making the Final Four wasn’t enough. Winning it all was. He reached the mountaintop.

• Kentucky vs. Duke, 1992. Christian Laettner and “The Shot” turned this East Regional final into an all-time classic. Short-handed Kentucky, so close to the Final Four, saw devastation appear with one long pass, one turnaround and one basket to give the Blue Devils the improbable 104-103 win.

Just a few memories to spark renewed interest.

This year … 68 teams to begin, with First Four games taking place March 14-15 ... 32 teams remain after the first two days with the Sweet 16 left by Sunday night.

14 venues in 13 states, with the Final Four in Houston to decide “the chip.”

Get your brackets ready.

Before the free-spending Peter Seidler took over, Axelrod negotiated deals back when the Padres pinched pennies instead of printing playoff tickets.

When Axelrod was among baseball’s top agents, he crafted impressive contracts with the Padres for infielder Phil Nevin (four years, $34 million) and right-hander Jake Peavy (three years, $52 million).

Both, at the time, were the richest pacts in franchise history.

Both look puny when considering the Padres have two players, infielder Manny Machado and outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr., with multiyear agreements exceeding $340 million. Plus, no squad has more players (five) making in excess of $20 million this season.

“I might have been a couple decades too early,” Axelrod said with a laugh.

Those former eye-popping contracts, thanks to Axelrod’s handiwork, pale in comparison to the riches awarded to those in uniform today.

That’s not the only difference, as far as the Padres are concerned.

Almost before the ink was dry on the Nevin and Peavey transactions, the Padres were exploring avenues to shed their liability.

Axelrod mentioned a phone call from then-Pa-

dres general manager Kevin Towers, breathlessly telling Axelrod a deal was in place with the Cincinnati Reds involving Ken Griffey Jr. for Nevin. Towers, a former Leucadia resident, wondered if Nevin would go.

“That’s great,” Axelrod said. “But we have a limited-trade clause, and Phil, who had built a big house in Poway and wanted to be close to his parents, had no interest in Cincinnati.”

Someone leaked the deal to the media, with Nevin being cast as the villain in the Padres’ quest to acquire a future Hall of Farmer in Griffey.

“We thought it was a long-term deal with the Padres and that was specifically why we signed it,” Axelrod said. “That was one of the only times I got in a disagreement with Kevin.”

Nevin, who now manages the Los Angeles Angels, read the tea leaves that he wasn’t wanted in San Diego. He ultimately accepted a trade to the Texas Rangers.

Nevin was hardly the lone Padres star among Axelrod’s clients to be pointed toward the door. Peavy, who won the 2007 Cy Young Award, signed his

hefty deal and the Padres sighed with regret.

Then-owner Jeff Moorad contacted Axelrod at the 2009 trading deadline at 8 a.m., asking if Peavy would agree to relocate to the Chicago White Sox. Axelrod and Peavy turned down a similar request earlier that season.

“The answer will be no, but it’s my obligation to run it by Jake, but he was sleeping,” Axelrod said. “Finally, I have his wife wake him up at 11 a.m. and he says yes. We met the 1 p.m. deadline by two minutes.”

Peavy’s 15 minutes of fame had expired with San Diego.

Conversely, the longterm deals engineered by Seidler don’t have a sell-by date. Seidler has stated the superstars he’s signing are

“I think we know the last four or five years of these deals won’t look good,” Axelrod said. “And I like Peter and love what he is doing, but is it sustainable?

“Just look at the Angels, where they pay their top players (Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Rendon) well and it doesn’t work out. You look at the Padres and they are paying their top four or five players, but you have to have a supporting cast.

“Is their center fielder (Trent Grisham) going to bat .184 again? They have catchers that don’t hit. And how good is Tatis going to be with a surgically repaired shoulder and wrist?

“(Yu) Darvish was great last year, but not so much the five years before. You have a second baseman playing first (Jake Cronenworth) and two corner outfielders (Tatis and Juan Soto) that can be suspect defensively. Things happen, players get older and don’t perform as well.”

True, but it’s false to think the Padres aren’t built for a deep October run.

“Agree, but look at Trout,” Axelrod said. “He’s the best player in the game and he’s been to three playoff games in his career.”

A penny for your thoughts and few have them with the perspective of Axelrod’s.

We have been discussing how to minimize our environmental impact with the choices we make around sustainability in this column.

Did you know you can maximize sustainability by minimizing?

This weekend, March 11-12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., TinyFest California is coming to the Del Mar Fairgrounds to show you how.

With a mission statement to empower people to maximize their lives while minimizing their impact on the environment, this show promises to live up to that calling.

Tiny-home builders, van conversion specialists, homeowners who have “gone tiny,” expert speakers, presentations, vendors specializing in all things sustainable, kid-friendly entertainment, and lots of food and fun will converge on the fairgrounds to deliver information on sustainable homes, alternative living and how to achieve financial freedom.

“There is a social culture behind the tiny movement, and it’s a great community,” says Renee Seevers, CEO of Tiny Fest.

The Iowa native converted a school bus in 2017 after her youngest went to college and has been on the road since sharing the joys of tiny living with others.

Many people dream of packing up the bus and driving into the unknown - these

folks are living that dream and want to share with you the joys of tiny living.

The tiny living movement commits to minimalism and springs roots from

living in America before suburbia began its sprawl.

Innovative builders such as Azure Printed Homes will have their tiny homes on display along with a creative, interactive school program called the Student Career Connection Symposium.

This educational trade program has been offered to the Carlsbad Unified and Oceanside Unified school districts, Urban Corps of San Diego County, Millennial Tech Middle School and Learning Choice Academy, which will auction off the tiny home it’s been building

the last two years.

“This has been such a great success in the school districts, with students blossoming while learning about building, engineering, development and designing,” Seevers says.

More and more people

and panel discussions that there are living options with a smaller footprint, using sustainably focused building materials and solar to add to energy savings, all while reducing carbon footprint,” Seevers adds.

Another educational program offered this weekend is produced by Sandy Blair, a female veteran tackling homelessness among women leaving the armed services. Blair runs Women Empowered Build Strong (www.operationwebs.org).

Blair and her team build tiny homes on wheels as a sustainable solution for displaced and homeless women veterans struggling to transition back to civilian life after their military service.

Bringing together policymakers, educators, vendors and innovators from this exciting and growing industry promises to be a motivating and exciting event for the whole family.

It should not be missed if you are even considering putting an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on your property or dreaming of converting that van or traveling in your RV.

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to explore tiny houses, van conversions, skoolies (school bus conversions), backyard cottages, shipping container homes, adventure rigs and more. Meet the builders and people living and traveling tiny every day.

At the Simple Living Marketplace, a variety of vendors will guide you on how to minimize your clutter, debt and carbon footprint while offering indepth information on various topics.

Hear inspiring stories throughout the weekend from speaker presentations, Q&A sessions and panel discussions.

are discovering that extra rooms and extra stuff do not add value or happiness. The financial freedom component comes with the freedom from stress that comes with less stuff.

“I love to show people through our demonstrations

TinyFest California is bringing together like-minded people with souls on fire who value the ideals behind building small and living large.

Parking at the fairgrounds is $15, and entry tickets range from $20 to $87 for a VIP weekend pass. Visit www.tinyfest.events to learn more, get tickets and join a movement that is sweeping the country.

Circus Vargas hits North County

The magic of Circus Vargas has returned to take guests momentarily far away from their North County lives to experience the wonders of Paris.

With this year’s “Bonjour Paris” theme, the show tells the story of a circus beginning its world tour with its first stop in the City of Lights (and City of Love).

The 2-hour show offers a variety of music, dancing, acrobats and other thrills throughout the Parisian themed set under the big top in an intimate, one-ring setting.

“People will really see the quality of entertainment we have,” said Community Outreach Director Rolanda Kaiser. “Our performers are all top-notch.”

This year’s show stars Johnathan Lee Iverson as the Ringmaster, who acts as the voice and face of the circus as he leads the show.

Iverson is a professionally trained singer who began his career at a young age as a member of The Boys Choir of Harlem.

After graduating from The Hartt School of the University of Hartford, at 22 years old Iverson became the youngest, the first New Yorker and the first Black American ringmaster in the nearly 150-year-old Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus.

Iverson, who joined Circus Vargas in January as both the ringmaster and performance director, said the circus offers audience members, cast members and stage crew alike a chance to share in a common sense of humanity.

“When you think about how polarized the country is right now, especially around the topic of immigration, the show is timely by introducing the idea of venturing outside of the borders of the United States in a fanciful way,” Iverson said. “Within our imaginations, going abroad and experiencing and enjoying another culture and people with people from various nations – even within our circus organization – is a wonderful seed to plant in the mind of the audience and gives them a sense of common humanity.”

Circus Vargas was first founded in 1969 by Clifford E. Vargas who wanted to bring back the big top tent circus idea from his childhood. Kaiser said the circus has been visiting Escondido since before Vargas’s death in 1989.

The circus stopped using animals in its acts in 2010 and remains animal-free.

“Everyone who watches the show leaves feeling happy,” Kaiser said. “I think we could all use something more inspiring, more entertaining like this show.”

Circus Vargas is located at the North County Mall in Escondido until March 20 with shows every day except Tuesday. For tickets and showtimes, visit circusvargas.com.

cheers! north county ryan

et’s briefly discuss boxed wine before this jumping into this month’s roundup.

Boxed wine was on sale at the local market this week. I thought it might be an excellent alternative to the bottles, which I rarely finish before they go bad.

Somehow the wine disappeared faster. The convenience of wine on draft may not be conducive to my need for instant gratifications.

Do any local wineries make good boxed wine?

What’s your favorite boxed wine? Please, let me know @cheersnorthcounty on Instagram. The data is in. Dry January is growing…at least in terms of non-alcoholic drink sales. Check out this chart put together by shankennewsdaily.*

NA beer sales have nearly tripled, NA wine has skyrocketed, and NA spirits growth is otherworldly. People want the experience, and I’m guessing the social-

izing, but not how alcohol makes them feel.

This is pure speculation, but I’d imagine a good chunk of on-site NA sales are due to people wanting to avoid drinking and driving.

Vittorio’s Italian Trattoria in San Diego’s Highland Village recently hosted Italy’s Frescobaldi Winery for its February wine dinner.

Owner Victor Magalhaes invited sommelier David Sheline and Italian wine specialist Marco Barat, both of Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits Signature division, to share Frescobaldi’s robust 700plus year winemaking history, starting with its Tenuta Castiglioni in 1308.

Making wines this long provides an opportunity to grow throughout Tuscany.

Today, the Frescobaldis own nine vineyards across Tuscany, including their original Tenuta Castiglioni, Gorgona Island at a penal institution where inmates make wine, Tenuta Calimaia in central Montepulciano, and Tenuta CastelGiocondo in southern Montalcino.

In 2020, the winemakers earned Gambero Rosso’s Winery of the Year award.

The first wine of the evening was the 2021 Pomino Blanco from Castello Pomino.

The Florentine mountains provide elevation resulting in brightness, higher acidity, and lower sugar for this chardonnay dominant blend with pinot blanco. The crispness paired well with the hamachi carpaccio topped with colorful wildflowers and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

The second course was my favorite. Large ravioli were stuffed with duck confit and topped with a creamy mushroom sauce. This was matched up with the 2018 Perano Chianti Classico made from Sangiovese fruit, the most planted grape in Italy.

Chianti Classico Tenuta

Perano is produced in the hills of Gaiole in Chianti from vineyards 500 meters above sea level. The south/ south-west exposure and the amphitheater shape of the vineyards concentrate the heat.

The combination of altitude, exposure, configuration and slope of the vineyards produced purple color, intense fruit aromas, and solid structure. The third course showcased the

2018 Nipozzano Reserve

Vicchie from Northeast Florence, the foothills of the Apennine Alps.

This sangiovese blend is aged six months longer than most of the other labels, creating a zesty profile. This melded well with the zest in the wild boar sausage ragu and polenta plate.

The fourth course was grilled petite filet mignon, garlic mashed potatoes, and broccolini topped with a Gorgonzola cream sauce.

This was paired with the 2019 Tenuta Castiglioni, the birthplace of Frescobaldi. These wines were enjoyed by both the Papal court and the English court of Henry VIII. The Castiglioni is a Super Tuscan blended with cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and sangiovese fruit.

The nose and palate had blackberries, blueberries, and plums. The nose also had hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and coffee. The back palate had an excellent finish with pleasant tannins. Discussing Castiglioni at our table led to a spirited discussion of what defines a Super Tuscan. There were several differing opinions. One included Super Tuscan representing blends of varietals.

Another was that it was a category to place wines that did not fit in the Disciplinare, which is the wine laws of Italy, and what defines types such as DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata, or Controlled Denomination of Origin) and DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, or Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin).

DOCG is a more stringent version of DOC and usually places caps on

The Cottage expands from La Jolla to Encinitas Village

Coming from Michigan, where it seems everyone has a “cottage” or access to one, the mere mention brings to mind happy memories of time spent up north on a lake.

And depending on your socioeconomic status, the term cottage could be a seasonal, one-room rustic cabin or a majestic year-round mansion. Regardless, it’s a word that resonates and makes me smile.

The original La Jolla Cottage is set in a Victorian-era bungalow. It has been a La Jolla institution since it launched in 1992 when founders Laura and John Wolfe transformed a pastry shop into the full-service restaurant that still exists today.

The long-awaited expansion came to fruition last year with the opening of The Cottage Encinitas. The new North County location is a win for Jason Peaslee, former investor and current owner of The Cottage.

Jason became a partner in the La Jolla eatery in 2005 with the Wolfe Family following a 15-year run at Piatti Ristorante & Bar, where he mastered just about every facet of the business under the tutelage of restaurateur Barbara Beltaire.

A few years later, when the Wolfe Family decided to sell The Cottage outright, Jason purchased the concept outright.

Since becoming co-proprietors of The Cottage in 2018, expanding upon the brand’s legacy has been top of mind for Jason and his business partner, Bernardo Kanarek. As a result, Encinitas emerged as the obvious market to pilot a single-unit expansion.

With its influx of celebrity chefs, luxury resorts and vacation-worthy attractions in recent years, it had a built-in audience of foodies ready to experience The Cottage without leaving the area.

“We’ve been very selective and circumspect in our growth strategy,” said Jason. “Expanding into a second location after such a storied past and solidified legacy, we wanted to find a place with the same beach town appeal and community-driven culture that’s sustained The Cottage’s success all these years, and Encinitas checks all of those boxes.”

Located within Encinitas Village, the recently renovated shopping center on El Camino Real and Encinitas Boulevard, the 3,500-square-foot restau-

rant neighbors Trader Joe’s and other national brands and locally-owned eateries.

The Cottage Encinitas has a coastal craftsman aesthetic that feels beachy with a touch of sophistication. I entered to find a display case filled with freshly baked goods alongside pre-packaged bundles of The Cottage’s bestselling granola. I also noticed 16-ounce bags of the restaurant’s signature coffee blends, batched and processed on-site at the inhouse roastery. I can attest to the addictive nature of The Cottage’s granola, as I almost polished off a whole bag in one sitting.

Rustic café-style seating fills the interior’s dining room, while locally commissioned murals adorn the walls with site-specific paintings. The Cottage’s rotating art program will see these artworks on auction in the coming months; proceeds from the sale will go to a local nonprofit benefitting early education.

Executive chef Paolo Chan, a Marine Corps vet eran, joined The Cottage in 2019 with nearly a decade of culinary experience, in cluding a stint as Sous Chef at Omni Hotel’s McCormick & Schmick and an Execu tive Chef position at Edge water Grill at Seaport Vil lage. His culinary prowess

guides The Cottage’s American-SoCal cuisine at both kitchens.

At the new breakfastto-lunch café, the menu parallels La Jolla’s, honoring all the ‘OG’ classic and cult favorites like the Stuffed French Toast, Avocado Smash and Capellini Crab Cakes, alongside a robust

es, wine, beer and low-ABV sippers.

Moreover, fresh fares like Crab and Prosciutto Benedict, Charred Octopus Salad and Leg of Lamb Sandwich will be exclusive to the Encinitas location and added plant-based offerings like Tofu "Huevos" Ranchero and Cauliflower and Lentil Curry.

Now that I’m leaning towards the healthier eating, I was immediately drawn to the Soy Chorizo Hash with black beans, potato, and queso on crispy corn tortillas with scrambled eggs.

The Baja Chicken Hash also caught my eye with poached eggs, chicken sausage, cottage potatoes, pep-

served in corn tortilla cups. I’ll be honest though and say that everything on the breakfast menu looks fantastic.

Lunch was my most recent visit, though I indulged in the Salmon Romaine Wedge. A wedge salad is a favorite, and their spin on it with grilled salmon, romaine hearts, baby tomato, avocado, cucumber, yogurt sauce and white wine vinaigrette rocked my lunchtime world. It was hearty enough to fill me up but not produce the dreaded lunchtime food coma that us working folks try to avoid.

My dining companion had the Grass Fed Burger

Quiet Mike and other dearly departed

water spot

chris ahrens

Walking up the Swami’s stairs there’s a reminder of a friend, the appropriately named Joy, who surfed with us for a few seasons, helping make each session more enjoyable.

I don’t recall the date of her passing, but it was around the time another friend, Kenny “Tumbleweed” Mann drowned while night surfing the break he ruled in his prime.

On the pillar of the stairs is a more formal memorial, this one dedicated to David “Spyder” Anear.

The tiled wave is for another longtime Swami’s dominator, surf journalist Gary Taylor. Gary, as many of you will remember, wrote “The Surf Writer,” for this very newspaper. Gary probably lived closer than any other local, until Rob Machado moved across the street.

But until then, it was Gary alone who could be seen crossing the street, board in hand, jogging down the stairs followed by his dog named for the place he loved, before GT carved his initials on whatever sections he rode.

Near Gary’s memorial is a plaque to the brilliant scientist, inventor and kneeboarder Terry Hendricks. At the opposite end of the parking is a lone boulder dedicated to the passing of the youngest of those we have chosen to

memorialize, the amazingly talented longboarder Syrus King.

Many of those I once surfed Swami’s with are gone now, and that may be one of the reasons I don’t visit there as often as I once did.

A few weeks ago, however, I decided to paddle out and was shocked to see a notice that my longtime friend “Quiet” Mike Romero was no longer among us. He was named “Quiet,” because he spoke in a whisper ever since a loose surfboard crushed his vocal cords.

I first met Mike and his brother, Ronnie, who worked as a chiropractor in Cardiff for years, about half a century ago. They both surfed well and regularly, and we would often

find Mike in paint-stained overalls pulling into the Swami’s parking lot after a day plying his profession as a house painter.

Mike was never the best surfer in the lineup, but more than competent, often snagging one of the bigger sets, laughing shyly and quietly when paddling back out to sit before catching another wave. He was fun to surf with, good with a joke, afterward offering whatever snacks he had buried in that classic 1952 Chevy truck of his.

In the mid-’70s that truck belonged to me. That was until I blew the engine and sold it to the first person with 600 bucks. Mike paid me cash, removed the wooden camper I often slept in, rebuilt the engine

yields and requires a government committee to pass the wine via analysis, evaluation, and tasting.

After researching, both opinions were correct but potentially better when blended. This pun was intended. Per my research, Super Tuscans are classified as wines made in Tuscany, outside the well-known Chianti and lesser-known Tuscan regions per DOC guidelines.

In the 1970s, winemakers wanted to experiment with blending Sangiovese with Bordeaux varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, petit verdot, malbec, and occasionally carménère.

Since this did not fit DOC guidelines for winemaking, at the time, the winemakers were forced to put the lower-end VdT (table wine) designation on these wines.

himself, painted it from green to blue, and restored it to better than new condition.

Not long ago, Mike showed me a note saying that my old truck was valued at around $40,000. If it had been anyone else, I would have been jealous. But with Mike I was glad. He made me feel like it was still mine, that he was simply keeping it for me and maintaining it better than I, or anyone else, ever would.

That’s the way it was with Mike. Even when he scored a better wave than me, I felt glad, feeling that he deserved it, and that he was sharing something, his stoke for life with me and everyone in earshot of his sweet and quiet voice.

I will return for the Milanese Chicken Sandwich with a crispy fried chicken cutlet, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and lemon chipotle aioli on bolillo bread.

Several healthy bowls dishes and taco selections are also available. Nice to see that the Mahi-Mahi fish tacos offer the option of grilled or battered…given my preference for the battered variety.

The variety of creative coffee and beverage options make The Cottage a perfect spot to enjoy some hard kombucha, a glass of fabulous beer or wine, or a rice vodka-based cocktail that packs less punch than traditional vodka.

There is a full kid’s menu, and the dessert options look elegant and delicious with Raspberry and White Chocolate Bread Pudding, Chocolate Pot de Crème, and Lemon Cheesecake.

But after wide acclaim and the introduction of the IGT (Typical Geographical Indication) level of designation, Super Tuscans were able to shift from Vdt to IGT, winning more recognition.

Some of the best Italian wines, such as Antinori’s Tignanello, are rated Super Tuscan, fetching over $150 per bottle.

Due to the flexibility of the IGT laws, Super Tuscans can range in a wide variety of blends and styles. More Frescobaldi wine info at frescobaldi.com/en.

Encinitas spa transforms into full wellness center with naturopathic medicine

Four Moons Spa has transformed into a wellness playground with the addition of naturopathic medical services along with its many traditional spa treatments, acupuncture, yoga, event programming (new music + comedy series) and other cosmic healing offerings.

Tucked away on beautiful private grounds in the heart of Encinitas, the spa provides a high-vibrational, nurturing environment that supports guests on their self-care and self-actualization journeys.

Join the Kitten Shower to help save lives

Spring in San Diego means many things: the blooming of flower fields in Carlsbad, fascinating “grunion runs” where the silvery fish take over beaches at night and — for San Diego Humane Society — the start of the busiest time of year: baby season.

Kittens need an incredible amount of attention to survive during their first weeks of life — attention that is usually provided by their mother. But for thousands of orphaned kittens in San Diego each spring, that critical care comes from the compassionate staff and volunteers in San Diego Humane Society’s Kitten Program.

Neonate kittens have several needs that San Diego Humane Society meets in the absence of a mother. They must feed every two to three hours — that’s a lot of bottles! Because they are not benefiting from the antibodies in a mother’s milk, it’s important these young felines are cared for with strict protocols to make sure they steer clear of disease and infection.

Kittens must also stay warm. Body temperature regulation is critical, so heating discs and blankets are a must. And then there’s hygiene. Kittens are adorable, but quite messy. Without a mom to groom them, people must step in to keep them clean and healthy.

Back in 2009, San Diego Humane Society opened the country’s first-ever around-theclock kitten nursery. Now called the Jim Lester Kitten Nursery & Foster Center, it develops and shares best practices for kitten care with shelters across the country. In addition to providing critical care for kittens, the Lester Nursey & Foster Center engages hundreds of trained foster volunteers to provide 24-hour care in their own

homes and offers a daycare space for fosters who need help caring for kittens during the day. The facility is now part of a broader Kitten Program that also includes nurseries at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido and Oceanside campuses. Programs like this are few and far between, and one of the key components to San Diego Humane Society’s commitment to Stay at Zero euthanasia of healthy and treatable shelter animals in San Diego County.

Every spring, animal lovers across our region are invited to participate in a virtual Kitten Shower to help save these thousands of tiny lives. By selecting a gift from one of San Diego

The spa’s myriad of services includes an outdoor soaking tub and sauna, daily yoga, therapeutic massages, organic facials, acupuncture, tarot readings and naturopathic medical treatments that include nutritional IVs, vitamin shots, platelet-rich plasma facials and a full, holistic approach to wellness at the hands of Drs. Hannah Lollar and Rachel Heussner.

“We’re trained to really look at the person as a whole and find the root cause of what’s going on,” Lollar said. “Not only do we care about your chief concerns and what your symptoms are, but we want to know who you are as a person to really deliver that comprehensive, holis-

tic approach to health.” The doctors run a series of tests to search for that root cause of illness.

As naturopathic doctors, both are fully trained in pharmaceutical medications, herbal and botanical

medicine, homeopathy, nutraceuticals, nutrition and counseling.

“We’re looking at all the different systems in the body, patterns in the bloodwork, and going through a patient’s whole health history trying to connect these dots and find that root cause,” Heussner said.

Both of the doctors love being part of their patients’ health journeys as well as their proximity to the spa’s other healers who they can refer their patients to for additional self-care needs.

“We have so much under one roof,” Heussner said. “They can come here to care for themselves on an emotional and mental level but then we can take them a step further with a look at their labs to figure out why they are feeling a certain way.”

But really getting the most out of them requires a strong understanding of responsible budget management. Ask yourself:

• Do I know my balances?

• Do I know when bill payments are due?

• Do I know when there has been new activity on my

accounts?

• Am I prioritizing my spending appropriately? Plenty of tools are available to help you set and stay within your budget. With connected technology, you can confidently manage your money like a pro – at home or on the go.

BE WELL

Beyond physical fitness, some of us seek deeper, more holistic, wellness. There are countless apps that can help you achieve a more balanced mindset. More and more people are turning to their devices to achieve physical and mental peace with offerings like:

• Instructor-led meditation

• Daily affirmations

• Breathing exercises

• Virtual reality travel

• Counseling CONSERVE

Leaving a better world for the next generation is a lofty aspiration. It can also seem daunting to a single person. Cutting back on waste, protecting natural resources and reducing emissions don’t have to be monumental tasks. We can use technology to:

• Shop online instead of driving to the store

• Change newspaper and magazine subscriptions from print to digital

• Sign up to receive bills via email instead of postal mail

• Use smart devices –lights, thermostats, etc.

– to optimize home energy efficiency

There are also many apps available that can help you calculate your personal carbon footprint and show you ways to shrink it. Check out My Earth, Klima, Earth Hero and Joro to learn how you can make a meaningful difference.

The bottom line: Today is just as good a starting point as January 1 to make and keep your 2023 resolutions. And with help from connected tech and a strong internet connection from a trusted provider like Cox, the journey to a happier, healthier and more fulfilled you can be a whole lot smoother.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF AUDREY LUCILLE CLARK

Case# 37-2023-00006981PR-LA-CTL

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of Audrey Lucille Clark

A Petition for Probate has been filed by Angela L. Johnson, in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego.

The Petition for Probate requests that Angela L. Johnson be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking

certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as

follows: Date: May 10, 2023;

Time: 1:30 pm; in Dept.: 502. Court address: 1100 Union St., San Diego CA 92101, Central Courthouse.

Court appearances may be made either in person or virtually, unless otherwise ordered by the Court. Virtual appearances must be made using the department’s Microsoft Teams (“MS Teams”) video link; or by calling the department’s MS Teams conference phone number and using the assigned conference ID number. The MS Teams video conference links and phone numbers can be found at www.sdcourt.ca.gov/

ProbateHearings

If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in

section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

FINE POINTS OF THE LAW

Natalia Harrell, 24, was arrested last July in Miami for allegedly shooting and killing Gladys Yvette Borcela, 28, as they rode in an Uber. Since then, she’s been in the custody of the Miami-Dade Corrections Department — along with her unborn child.

Now, Michael O’Brien, the father of the child, has filed a petition claiming the baby has not been charged with a crime and is having its due process rights violated, NBC Miami reported.

“I don’t want the baby to be born prematurely or low birth weight,” O’Brien said. “The conditions (in the jail) are terrible and I feel she’s not getting the prenatal care she should be getting.”

He seeks the baby’s immediate release. Officials replied that they are reviewing the care Harrell has received “to ensure that all prenatal care being provided in our custody is appropriate.” [NBC Miami, 2/21/2023]

IRONY

Police in Glemgormley, Northern Ireland, pulled over a Mini Cooper on Feb. 27 and asked the driver for proof of insurance, the Irish Mirror reported.

After cagily searching around for the document, the driver admitted they didn’t have insurance — even though they were sporting a bumper sticker

that cheekily asked, “My brakes are good!! Is your insurance?”

The car was seized and the driver was issued a penalty for the lack of coverage. [Irish Mirror, 2/27/2023]

NEW WORLD ORDER

Tired of your John Hancock looking like a child’s scribble? Priscilla Molina of Los Angeles can help with that. The Associated Press reported that Molina’s business, Planet of Names, will make over anyone’s signature for between $10 and $55.

People seeking her service are “not happy with their signatures. They don’t relate to who they are. They don’t give the message they want to convey to the world,” Molina said.

She designs up to 300 custom signatures per month, and offers a range of styles, from elegant and artistic to ... illegible. [AP, 2/28/2023]

MY KINDOM FOR AN EDITOR

First it was a misspelling of Georgia O’Keeffe’s name in New York City’s new Grand Central Terminal.

On Feb. 26, according to the Associated Press, the state’s Department of Transportation installed a new sign in Queens to identify the Jackie Robinson Parkway, established in 1997. Robinson was the first African American player to compete in major league baseball.

But the DOT forgot

the C, spelling the baseball great’s first name Jakie. The sign was quickly replaced with the correct spelling. [AP, 2/28/2023]

UNCONVENTIONAL WEAPONRY

In a puzzling attempt to draw attention to the climate crisis, three people defaced a woolly mammoth at the Royal B.C. Museum in Victoria, Canada, on March 1, the Times Colonist reported. A woman allegedly used her hands to paint the mammoth’s tusks pink.

A group called On2Ottawa has claimed responsibility for the vandalism; the painter, “Laura,” says in a video posted online, “If the government does not enact a citizens’ assembly to tackle the climate and ecological crisis in the next one to two years, then we will be traveling to Ottawa to demand one.”

The water-based paint was cleaned off the tusks and three people were arrested. [Times Colonist, 3/2/2023]

OOPS

More than 40 high school students from the Barr Beacon School in Walsall, England, were stranded in the U.S. for four extra days after a ski trip to New Hampshire, the New York Post reported.

It wasn’t weather that shut down their travel, but the fact that the Kancamagus Lodge in Lincoln, New Hampshire, “accidentally” shredded 42 of their passports.

Fortunately, head teacher Katie Hobbs, who was not on the trip, was on top of the situation and had the group move to New York City, where the British embassy was preparing emergency documents.

In the meantime, the kids toured the city and took in the sights. “The silver lining is that they can have an amazing experience,” said one parent.

The lodge had no explanation for the destruction of the passports other than it happened by mistake.

[New York Post, 3/1/2023]

PERSPECTIVE

Hicham Argani, a police officer in Boxtel, Netherlands, was patrolling his neighborhood when he spotted an unidentified object in the sky, the Daily Star reported on March 1.

He posted on Instagram about the “suspected ‘spy balloon’“ hovering over the Selissen district and followed it in his car. Finally, he decided to pull over to get a closer look at it — which was when he realized the UFO was a blob of bird poo stuck to his windshield.

Argani updated his post with his findings and an all-clear: “Boxtel is safe!” [Daily Star, 3/1/2023]

COMPELLING EXPLANATION

A Peruvian man, 26-year-old Julio Cesar Bermejo, is being detained in Puno after police discovered a mummified human in his possession, People reported.

Officers approached three men drinking in a park on Feb. 25 and noticed the remains inside a cooler delivery bag. Bermejo told them that he had brought the mummy to the park to show his friends; it had been in his family for decades.

He said he named the remains “Juanita” and it was his “spiritual girlfriend.” However, officials say the mummy is actually that of a 45-year-old man, and they’ve turned it over to Peru’s Ministry of Culture. [People, 3/1/2023]

REPEAT OFFENDER

Rodolfo Santillan just can’t stop burglarizing cars. On Feb. 21, he broke into a work van in Chicago while wearing an ankle bracelet for two pending car burglary cases, CWB Chicago reported.

A passing police officer stopped and charged him with misdemeanor criminal trespass, and he left the police station at about 4:40 p.m. Two hours later, police were called to another van, where workers said they had found Santillan inside.

He was also caught on video taking tools from a nearby car. Santillan was held without bail for violating bond in the previous cases. [CWB Chicago, 2/27/2023]

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

According to the India Times, a wedding in Bhavnagar took an odd turn in late February when Hetal, the bride, fainted during the nuptials, then

passed away at the hospital. Doctors said she suffered a heart attack.

As the wedding festivities went on, the family came up with a novel idea: The bride’s younger sister would marry the groom instead. City councilman Laxmanbhai Rathore called the event extremely sad and said the family was trying to set an example by not abandoning the groom and his family without a bride.

One woman commented on Twitter: “Families cannot afford to let their wedding investment go in vain. Behind all that love and sanskaar is a very practical and businesslike family model.” [India Times, 3/1/2023]

THE PASSING PARADE

In Tsuruta, Japan, an annual sporting event was shuttered for three years during the COVID pandemic, but now it’s back, Reuters reported.

The Suction Cup Tugof-War, in which pairs of bald men attach suction cups to their heads and pull in opposite directions, took place on Feb. 22, with the city’s Bald Men’s Club gamely competing.

“My head still hurts,” said Toshiyuki Ogasawara, 43. “I think I need to ice it!”

The club welcomes people who “view baldness in a positive manner” and want to “brighten the world with our shiny heads,” its website reads.

This year’s champion was Mr. Ota, who has won three consecutive times. [Reuters, 2/22/2023]

trative roles, including chief of staff from 2015 to 2017 and as a chief medical officer since 2019.

Aside from his work as an emergency room doctor, Ma’s background includes work in healthcare affiliations, mergers and acquisitions, and executive leadership in private equity and healthcare IT startups.

Ma attended medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, after which he completed an internship at Stanford and a residency in emergency medicine at UC San Diego before joining TriCity.

“I’ve always been organization-first,” Ma said. “If they find a candidate that is best suited to lead this organization, I’ll be 100% behind it.”

memories, and she found comfort after he died unexpectedly in 2017. She prioritizes giving back to the community in any way she can, working as an intervention specialist and trying to help people down on their luck. She said that receiving assistance from DMCC has been humbling, but she is incredibly grateful for it.

“I do a lot of things here, and I’d love to be able to stay and continue doing them,” she said.

Ma has been maintaining a presence with patients and staff in the emergency room. However, those visits will likely have to pause when he officially takes on his new responsibilities as interim CEO.

“I feel that I get the best understanding of the impacts on patients and our staff when I’m doing that work with them sideby-side,” Ma said.

For Ma, the hospital must continue to honor and appreciate its staff and employees to maintain its “unique sense of family.” He praised the staff for its overall sense of leadership.

“There are many true leaders in this organization without titles, and knowing that they’re supported and that we value them is going to be a big piece in how we move forward,” Ma said.

Ma will officially take over as interim CEO on March 22, a day after current CEO Steve Dietlin retires.

lana Beach interior designer drugged and strangled her former stepfather after picking him up from the hospital on New Year’s Eve of 2020 and hid his body under a pile of boxes and trash in his driveway, which was discovered the next day by detectives.

Janks and her defense attorney, Marc Carlos, argued that she was traumatized after discovering explicit photos of herself on Merriman’s computer but did not murder him. On the stand in December, Janks said she found his body in her car after an apparent overdose and hid his body in the driveway out of panic.

At the sentencing hearing, Carlos also claimed that Janks had suffered from trauma and sexual abuse at an early age, something that was not brought forward at trial.

“She has maintained her innocence throughout this matter and will continue to do so,” Carlos said. “She panicked under this reaction to the trauma that she had, and as a result, she did things that made her appear to be complicit in the death of Mr. Merriman.”

Janks also spoke briefly at her sentencing.

“I’m sorry I didn’t act the way I was supposed to that day,” she said. “To Tom’s family, I understand you hate me … but there’s a lot more you’ll never understand.”

Flanagan said losing

his business partner and friend of over a decade was “devastating” and profoundly impacted the Butterfly Farms operation.

He said the farm faced negative pushback after allegations about Merriman’s inappropriate behavior in the case were made public and that after being told their rent at the Leichtag Commons would be tripled, the nonprofit’s lease was not renewed in November. However, an exact reason for this decision was not given.

“The business at this point is closed. I’ve laid everyone off; everything is in storage. I’ll have to look seriously at whether I can do the business without Tom,” Flanagan said. “This has been devastating not just to me but to all the people who look to Tom for answers in the work we were doing.”

Flanagan is hoping to move the farm’s operations to Poway.

“We have a place to move; it’s just not ready yet, so we were really hoping to get another year in Encinitas,” he said.
