BY KAREN BRAINARD The county Planning Commission voted against supporting a ban on marijuana storefronts and grows as proposed by the Board of Supervisors but instead revised its original recommendation that seeks a compromise between medical marijuana business owners and the public. The county Board of Supervisors on Jan. 25 directed staff to develop an ordinance banning medical and non-medical marijuana facilities in the unincorporated county and bring it to the Planning Commission on Feb. 10 for consideration.

KAREN BRAINARD

A chart at the county Planning Commission hearing shows the locations of medical marijuana dispensaries that are operating or have the vested right to proceed, and the locations of building permit applications that have been submitted. Commissioner Bryan Woods, whose district includes Ramona, said a ban is more negative than positive “because it actually supports the black market. It creates grows illegally that do not have

regulation, taxation and quality control.” He also said a ban creates illegal storefronts that don’t follow issues for public safety.

Regional competition attracts 40 Winter Guard teams to town

M

ore than 500 students on 40 Winter Guard teams converged on Ramona High School Saturday for Winter Guard Association of Southern California competition hosted by the Ramona High Marching Band and Guard. Ramona High Winter Guard members premiered their competition routine at the event and, according to supporters, “performed their full show and stunned the crowd with their amazing skills.” Teams came from as far away as Palm Springs and El Centro and arrived throughout the rainy day to have their performance evaluated for competition classification. The event attracted more than 400

Winter Guard is a routine set to music of dance and tumbling while spinning and tossing flags, sabers, and rifles on a large vinyl

mat covering the entire gym floor. It usually includes fanciful props. Some teams did not showcase their entire routine as Ramona’s Winter Guard did.

Woods, a former Ramona resident, made two motions after nearly two hours of public testimony. The first stated opposition to a total ban, approved by commissioners 5-0. Absent from the hearing were commissioners David Pallinger and Douglas Barnhardt. Woods said he favored a compromise like “Option 8,” the Planning Commission’s recommendation last November that limits the number of medical marijuana dispensaries to four per supervisorial district and two in any one community, raises the purchasing age from 18 to 21, requires a minor use permit, restricts dispensary hours to 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and includes fines for ordinance violators and repeat offenders.

Indivisible focuses on ‘bridging people’ BY KAREN BRAINARD A new group that has started in Ramona as part of a nationwide movement focused on civil liberties, inclusivity of all people, and concerns about the Trump administration attracted 80 attendees to a meeting on Sunday, Feb. 12, in the Ramona Library Community Room. Susan Conrad, who started Indivisible Ramona in January, said she hopes to create an atmosphere that is “bridging people.” Conrad, a Ramona resident and teacher, said she plans to speak at the Ramona Unified School District meeting on Thursday, Feb. 16. Although she teaches outside the district, Conrad said she plans to ask the board to be proactive and to focus on inclusivity for all students, as

there have been some bullying issues. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Wilson Administrative Center Board Room, 720 Ninth St. According to Conrad, Sunday’s meeting was her fourth in Ramona and it represented a significant increase from her first meeting. Pierre “Pete” Beauregard and Amy McQuillan said the crowd filled the library’s community room. “Part of this is, it’s non-partisan,” said McQuillan, adding that there are Republicans who are not thrilled with Donald Trump as president. “We want to make it as inclusive as possible.” “We’re really concerned about the next four years,” said Beauregard. Sunday’s meeting included a SEE BRIDGES, A22

Thieves mug elderly veteran Woman dies in small plane crash An 89-year-old Ramona man was the victim of a mugging Saturday afternoon in the 1800 block of Main Street and was punched several times in his face before the thieves got away with a necklace and medallion, according to reports. The man’s daughter said on social media that he suffered a black eye and a nosebleed. The victim is a veteran of World War II and the Korean War. The robbery occurred around 1:45 p.m. in the vicinity of CVS Pharmacy and the office of Dr. John Harper, M.D., reports stated. Deputies were looking at two suspects, one white and one black, in their late teens to early twenties, “however this is still under investigation,” said Sgt. Robert Samuels on Monday. No weapon was reported in the attack, he said. The necklace and medallion were valued at $2,700, according to the sheriff’s station. In other matters, the sheriff’s department arrested eight people on Feb. 9 after conducting a compliance check at 3348 state Route 67, said Samuels. The large property contains several buildings and trailers and is known a a hang-out for people involved in criminal activity, he said. Law enforcement recovered a truck, boat, and trailer that had been stolen along with about four grams of methamphetamine, said the sergeant. Among the eight arrested, three were females and all were in their mid 20s to early 30s. Charges included under the influence of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, possession of stolen property, possession of a stolen vehicle and several outstanding warrants, he said. In other reports at the Ramona station:

A 20-year-old woman died and two men were injured when a small plane crashed Sunday in a remote area east of Ramona near Pamo Road, authorities reported. The crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. Rescuers were able to reach the two men, ages 25 and 28, who climbed out of the crash site and used their cell phones to call for help, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and Cal Fire. They had non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to a hospital for treatment, officials said. Because the crash site was largely inaccessible, efforts to recover the woman’s body were suspended Sunday night and resumed Monday morning. The woman’s body was recovered around 10:30 a.m. Feb. 13.

David Collins in a news release. The medical examiner’s office had not released the victim’s name, pending notification of next of kin, by the time the Sentinel went to press. A large crane helicopter was expected to be used to extract the plane from the site. The Cessna was registered to the American Aviation Academy, according to reports. It was flying from Gillespie Field Airport as an instructor/student flight, said the sheriff’s department. The Federal Aviation Administration was investigating the crash, Cal Fire reported.

Planners discuss another delay for park projects BY KAREN BRAINARD After 3½ years of planning and multiple studies and meetings, three projects for Wellfield Park were finally scheduled to get their funding — until the county’s stormwater management department stepped in. The projects are to be paid for with Park Lands Dedication Ordinance (PLDO) funds, which number in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for Ramona. Two of the projects — five LED scoreboards for Ramona Girls Softball and field expansion and lights for Ramona Soccer League — were approved for PLDO funding by the Ramona Community Planning Group in 2013. The third project was first proposed as enhancing a natural-shaped amphitheater and creating an active recreational area but was scrapped last year because it became cost-prohibitive after the county’s biological studies. Instead, the active recreation project was re-designed for nine-hole disc golf and a 15-lane horseshoe pit and concourse in the park along Elm Street. Planning group member and Wellfield Park Elm Street project champion Jim Cooper told planners Feb. 2 that the three projects were supposed to go to the Board of Supervisors in January for funding approval and release but the county stormwater management department put them on hold for a review. A meeting was conducted on Feb. 1 between the county and the Ramona Municipal Water District (RMWD), which owns the park, he said. “So these projects have been approved throughout various county offices ... they’re being now reviewed by county stormwater management people,” said Cooper, who also sits on the planning group’s Parks and Recreation Subcommittee. The Sentinel contacted the county and in an email response a spokesperson said stormwater management has no concerns with the proposed plans for the new recreational improvements; the problem is that there are identified non-permitted structures in the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) mapped floodway at the park. “This will not delay the new recreational improvements,” stated the email. “County staff will work with the Ramona Community Park/RMWD to develop a long-term plan to address this issue as allowed in the federal flood control regulations.” The county has been working to set up a meeting with RMWD to discuss the process and requirements, said the email. In June 2015 the county Parks and Recreation Department held a meeting with the Ramona PLDO project champions and presented a map of the park that had already identified unpermitted buildings. According to the county, the PLDO funding is scheduled to be heard by the supervisors this spring. For the project champions it is just one more delay by the county. “Every time we get ready, they come up with the next thing to stall it,” said Jeff Moody, champion for the scoreboard project. All the plans and specifications are done, he said, and it will only take a week to install the scoreboards. In the meantime, parents continue to keep scores of games and players have no boards to check the scores. The Girls Softball LED scoreboards have been

Ramona Community Planning Group Chair Dan Scherer points out the county's realigned boundaries for Park Lands Dedication Ordinance funds as vice chair Torry Brean holds the map. approved for up to $128,000 in PLDO funds, soccer league expansion up to $275,000, and the Wellfield Park Elm Street project up to $190,000, Cooper told planners at their meeting. Since 2013, three projects using PLDO funds have been completed: conversion of a tennis court to basketball court for the Ramona branch of the Boys and Girls Club at Collier Park for $70,620, Barnett School Playground project for $92,000, and Ramona High School baseball/softball fencing and dugout, $100,000. “The remaining funds that are unencumbered are right now pencil-marked for supporting the Ramona Skateboard Park and it has been consistent with the Parks and Rec subcommittee that once these three major projects get funded, all future funds will be focusing on Ramona Skateboard Park,” said Cooper. The unencumbered funds are just under $90,000. Planning group member Scotty Ensign asked if the skateboard park project is still active. Cooper said it is and Tracy Engel serves as the champion. The skate park group is pursuing matching funds from the county for maintenance, he said, and the future Ramona Intergenerational Community Campus (RICC) to be built near Main and 13th streets still has an area designated for a skate park. In other PLDO news, Dan Scherer, 2016 Parks and Recreation Subcommittee chair, said the county worked on realigning the boundaries of PLDO areas. “The whole idea is we didn’t want to lose any funds potentially from development,” said Scherer. PLDO funds accumulate from a fee paid by developers of residential projects and the money is to be used for active recreation park projects in that same community. The county’s Parks and Recreation Department charges an administrative fee to oversee the PLDO fund accounts. Scherer said large developments like Montecito Ranch do not contribute to the fund. Montecito Ranch is dealing directly with the county to create parks within its development. Cooper said the areas that the community is losing in the realignment do not generate PLDO funds, but a section that will be included near the San Diego Country Estates has “PLDO funding potential.” “So, on the scale I think we’re slightly ahead with what they’re proposing,” said Cooper. The planning group unanimously supported the county’s realigned PLDO boundaries.

GUEST COMMENTARY

The Great Southern Wall BY OSCAR A. QUINONES I have been following with great interest the impassioned citizen debate letters printed in the Ramona Sentinel dealing with President Trump’s proposed wall for the Southern border of the United State of America. Some of the citizens believe that such an idea is a contradiction to a free society presuming to safeguard the golden gates of democracy and freedom all over the world, while others believe the idea is superb and want the wall erected yesterday to prevent drugs and criminals from entering our nation illegally. If anything, the wall idea has fueled a passionate debate on the public forum, which is a really healthy thing for a free society. I hope and wish Congress is taking notes. The idea of controlling the movement of people by building a wall was used in antiquity by the Chinese to keep the Mongols from overrunning China and, more recently, by the Nazis in Poland to keep the Jews pinned down in the ghetto and by the Russians to divide Berlin. Except for the Great Wall of China, all such walls have come down by the cry of freedom and democracy for the masses. No one can make the claim that walls do not keep people out, but walls work when the walls are manned by machine gun emplacements and/or mine fields. There may be some ethical and human rights issues at stake for this proposed wall. I personally have reservations about the efficiency of a Southern wall, and here is why: As twisted as it may sound for many of us, the Mexican drug cartel is fulfilling one of the main principles of free enterprise – supply and demand. I doubt very much if a wall is going to stop the drug cravings that some of us in the United States have developed, and if you add to that the fact that the Mexican cartel has demonstrated a keen ability to dig tunnels, well then, now you can see my point. As for the illegal aliens, that is going in the same direction – very difficult to stop them as long as they find jobs here in the United States. I am also writing because I do not want any of my descendants to think I did not raise a voice in the debate – our rights, our country, our mistakes, and the mess left behind for our descendants to unravel. Oscar A. Quinones is a Ramona resident.

OUR READERS WRITE Support the people AND Trump Mr. Patterson in his letter last week “Support the people or Trump” seems to have missed the point of Executive Order 13769. I stand with Congressman Hunter in supporting Trump, who IS SUPPORTING the people of America, all of them! It’s not unconstitutional. Suggestion: First, read the Constitution of the United States of America. Second, read the text of EO 13769. The Constitution will tell you that the president is the Commander in Chief. As such, he is responsible for the protection of the American people — all of them. EO 13769 says NOTHING about banning Muslims from America. It amazes me when someone like Mr. Patterson plays from their deck of cards: the religious card in this case; or is it the race card? Often it is the gender card, wage card —you name it. And then he has the audacity to point the finger at others claiming they are “dividing the people and fanning the flames of hate.” Sorry buddy, we’re on to you. Tom McKelvey Ramona

Voter’s remorse This year marks the beginning of the Trump Dynasty. In his first 30 days, Donald Trump has

further destabilized the entire Middle East. His executive order decrees are being overturned as unconstitutional in U.S. courts. He's all but declared war on Mexico, one of the top three U.S. allies. Mexico now has vowed to gridlock the federal courts with their challenges on our deportation of undocumented families. Trump's top spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway, is selling the office of the president by hawking Ivanka Trump's clothing line. Trump is still screaming about some five million votes that were illegally cast. Today, he hasn't offered a single shred of evidence. Trump does not have any humility. A million women march on Washington has had no effect. President Trump has millions of groupies; women are infatuated with him. They see him as an Adonis figure. In a land where Trump could be king, he garnished nearly 80 percent of the vote in Ramona. As his term wanes on, more and more of the electorate will experience voter's remorse. Peter W.

Nighttime lane closures for intersection project Nighttime lane closures on both directions of State Route 67 at Dye/Highland Valley Road have been underway this week for installation of a new drainage system as part of the intersection improvement project, according to Caltrans. The lane closures, from 7 p.m. to 5 a .m., began on Sunday and were scheduled to be completed by Friday. SR-67 was reduced to one lane with flaggers to direct one-way traffic control through the intersection, said Caltrans. Project construction began in May 2016 to improve the intersection and widen SR-67 from two to four lanes through the intersection. In January, crews began widening the eastbound side of the intersection, which required reducing the travel lanes on a portion of Highland Valley Road from two lanes to one lane

in each direction. The lane reduction resulted in increased queues and traffic delays during peak commute times. Some relief is expected in mid-March when construction activities shift to the westbound side of the intersection. During the final stage of the project, crews will open two eastbound lanes and one westbound lane on Highland Valley Road. Construction is expected to be completed this summer, with another year for landscaping. Motorists are reminded to watch for highway workers and moving construction equipment in the project area. More information about the SR-67 Dye/Highland Valley Road Interchange Project is at www.dot.ca.gov/d11/projects/67_DyeRoad.pdf.

Museum potluck will feature history of wineries in county Richard Carrico, professor of American Indian Studies at San Diego State University, will be the featured speaker at the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society's Feb. 21 potluck dinner meeting. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Barnett Barn on the grounds of the Guy B. Woodward Museum, 645 Main St. The public is invited. Those attending are asked to bring a main dish, salad, or dessert to serve eight. Carrico's presentation will be based on his new book, "Of Wine on the Lees Well Refined: A History of the Wineries of San Diego County." The book and presentation span more than 240 years from the origins of San Diego wines at Mission San Diego in the late 1700s to the contemporary wine scene. Little known facts will be presented

such as at one time San Diego County had more wineries than Sonoma or Napa. The area's first commercial winery was in Valley Center, and Ramona played a major role in the early development of wines in the county. One of the most popular and award-winning wineries was in Alpine. The presentation will take attendees through stops in Otay, Fallbrook, Escondido, Camp Pendleton, and Ramona Valley. Historic photos will cover grape stomping, murders, prohibition, and the near-death and revival of the wine industry in the county. Carrico will be available to autograph books should attendees wish to purchase them. For more information, call the museum at 760-789-7644.

Cow killed in Dye Road collision A cow died after being hit by a pickup on a foggy Ramona roadway last Friday, California Highway Patrol said. The driver was not hurt in the collision that smashed in the front of the Ford F-350. The crash occurred about 3 a.m. crash on Dye Road near Mandez Drive. The cow had died at the edge of the southbound traffic lane, according to a CHP incident log. Officers put traffic cones around the animal so other motorists wouldn’t hit it before a crew came after sunrise to remove it.

Dedication ceremony on Saturday for Verlaque Pioneer Store mural BY JOYCE STRAND A dedication ceremony for the Verlaque Pioneer Store mural will be held on Saturday, Feb. 18, beginning at noon at Reds, Whites & Brews at 629 Main St., next to the Guy B. Woodward Museum. The public is invited. In addition to refreshments, attendees will receive a picture of the mural, autographed by the artist. This is the 12th Ramona mural sponsored by the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation. The Verlaque Pioneer Store mural is dedicated to the first business establishment in Ramona built in 1883 and run by Amos Verlaque and later by his brother Jeff. It was a stage stop, general store, and post office and offered a place for local folks to hang out, chat, buy goods, and receive mail. The artist, Rik Erickson, painted what might be found in the Verlaque Pioneer Store from the late 1800s to 1911. Erickson is a licensed, professional mural artist and painter who has been painting custom, high-quality wall murals for clients for more than 25 years. His murals can be seen in restaurants, businesses, hospitals, the Marine and Coast Guard wall, as well as many private residences throughout San Diego. As with all Ramona mural projects,

viewers will be challenged to discover the “heart” icon in a “Where’s Waldo” exercise. Donations to help pay for the mural projects may be made on the website at ramonamurals.com. Donations of $100 or more will be listed on the website and on a plaque on the building. The main goal of the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Murals Project is to create a reason for those passing tourists to STOP to enjoy Ramona’s beauty, charm, character, and heritage, and to rest a spell. After looking to the examples set by other mural towns, a group of Ramona business people came together to launch an aggressive outdoor visual arts program, starting with murals. The acronym H.E.A.R.T. not only indicates Ramona as the geographic center of San Diego County, but reflects the character of the community. “H” for Historic and Hiking, “E” for Equine, “A” for Arts, Antiques and Agriculture, “R” for scenic rural vistas and drives, and “T” for Tasting of fine wines. For more information about the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project, go to ramonamurals.com or contact Elaine Lyttleton at 760-787-1102.

Reconnecting with the past BY KAREN BRAINARD After learning that an empty pickle jar containing a note with his name on it, dated 1954, was found under the flooring of the former Pioneer Market, Ralph McIntosh Sr. paid a recent visit to the building at 629 Main St. “When I opened that up, I couldn’t believe it,” the 81-year-old McIntosh said. “Absolutely my writing. Guilty as charged.” McIntosh’s father, Henry Douglas McIntosh, owned the Pioneer Market. He said he would have been 18 years old at the time and remembers going under the flooring to do repair work, such as bracing the wood underneath as the building was constructed in the early 1880s. As for writing the note and putting it in the Ramona Maid Pickle Company jar, McIntosh said, “I honestly don’t remember doing that.” The jar was discovered when the building’s current owner, Peter Bidegain, had a

Bidegain is opening a wine and craft beer tasting room in that side of the building called Reds, Whites & Brews and on the other side owns Antiques & Treasures. McIntosh said he’s impressed with the restoration of the building and has some photos of the Pioneer Market with cars

He said he contacted a friend who now lives in Oregon and they think a pickle company used to be in the area of Ramona Airport.

Ask Mr. Marketing BY ROB WEINBERG

Delivering savings until Friday sales commission, everyone wins, right? Their plan is obvious: • Customer chooses a card from the multiple displays in the postal store lobby • Coupon offers $1 off three cards if purchased before 2/17/17 • Customer buys two additional cards AND stamps for mailing them The promotion’s demise date screams “Valentine’s Day,” though any cards sold there qualify for the discount. Now let’s examine your business. Odds are good there’s a potential partner for you, regardless of what you sell. Car dealerships can join forces with area gas stations. Bakeries can work with exercise studios, which, in turn, can partner with beverage companies. The USPS isn’t collecting buyers’ contact information, but there’s no reason you can’t. A list of buyers is incredibly valuable, since: • They like what you and your partner sell • You have an established relationship • They’re likely to buy from you again Partnerships must be carefully thought out and planned, but can be very successful if done right. Learn from the USPS and develop one today. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing. Get more partnership ideas for your business at www.askmrmarketing.

BY KAREN BRAINARD A San Diego Country Estates homeowner who has repeatedly complained about the continued operation of a short-term vacation rental on her street is taking her complaint to court. “It’s been a nightmare living next door to a mini hotel,” Tammy Rozelle said in a February 2016 Sentinel article about the short-term rental at 15115 La Plata Court that is listed on online vacation sites such as Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO). Rozelle and Sean Studley live two doors away from the vacation rental. Their attorney, John A. Simpson, Esq. of Simpson Delmore Greene LLP in San Diego, filed their lawsuit with San Diego Superior Court on Dec. 21. Defendants named include Cheryl Williams, owner of the vacation rental, and the San Diego Country Estates Association (SDCEA). According to the suit, Williams started operating the vacation rental in summer 2015 and it has been rented to large groups of people for periods of three to 10 days. Among the complaints are nuisance and negligence — the plaintiffs say the vacation rental violates the Estates’ Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) due to excessive noise and disturbances, traffic, and harassment by some of the guests. “The noise has been excessive to a point where the sheriff was called

due to continued loud noise late into the evening,” states the complaint. It also says the Estates association has breached the CC&Rs and bylaws by failing to take action to abate and reduce the excessive noise and nuisance that at times pour into the common areas and into the plaintiffs’ property, and by allowing Williams to operate a business out of the house in violation of the CC&Rs. “We don’t have distinct rules that address this issue in our bylaws,” said SDCEA board president Jim Piva, referring to the documents that were written 40 years ago when the Estates was built. “Our attorney (for the SDCEA) has advised us that this is a neighbor to neighbor dispute. We have no other neighbors who are complaining.” Williams told the Sentinel last February that she researched county regulations and had a legal team review the CC&Rs to see if renting her house on a short-term basis was within her rights and said she was not aware of any prohibitive regulations. SDCEA has filed a demurrer/motion to strike that is scheduled for March 17, according to the court’s website. Short-term vacation rentals such as Airbnb have been a contentious issue for some San Diego neighborhoods, but a proposal to ban them was rejected by San Diego City Council late last year.

A

man walks into the post office… Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, doesn’t it? But there I was waiting to buy postage and I discovered a coupon jointly issued by Hallmark and the USPS. In truth I shouldn’t have been surprised. For the past few years the Postal Service has been getting increasingly commercial in an effort to overcome an annual $5 billion deficit. And because the USPS is a quasi-governmental agency receiving zero tax dollars, that money obviously has to come from someplace. So a few years back they started selling ancillary items like packing supplies and greeting cards. Then they struck deals to feature animated characters on postage stamps, including Bambi, Big Bird, and Daffy Duck. Today, stamps featuring Wonder Woman can be affixed to Snoopy greeting cards, both purchased at the postal counter. The tie-in between postage stamps and Hallmark greeting cards is a logical one. Postal stores have a built-in customer traffic flow. Most cards get mailed and need stamps. What better place to tie the stamps, cards, and customers together than at the post office? Furthermore, free email graphics have been the source of headaches for Hallmark executives for a long time. If they can sell more cards and pay the USPS a

Coloring forges new friendships BY KAREN BRAINARD New friendships have blossomed amid boxes of colored pencils and books of intricate designs. "It's social and it's creative all at the same time," said Lori Kunkel, one of several Ramona women who are bonding while coloring. Laughter often erupts as they chit-chat and fill in between the lines. "Color Me Calm” is Ramona Library’s new adult coloring club that started in February and attracted 10 people to its first session with ages ranging from late 20s to late 70s. Unlike a similar program that was introduced last fall, this one seems to be taking off. Iris Price believes putting the word "calm" into the

name has helped draw participants. Last year it was just the Adult Coloring Club. "You think of drawing naked women or something," she quipped. Haelli Greer, 28, volunteered to head up Color Me Calm from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursdays, and recruited her mother, Pam. While the majority of participants didn't know each other even though they have lived in Ramona for years, most knew Kunkel. "And she's only been here a year," said Pam Greer. "That's because the library is my best friend," Kunkel lightheartedly retorted, adding that in the year she has lived in Ramona she has attended many programs and concerts at the library. That led to an

exchange among the coloring enthusiasts about the library as a kind of social center. The coloring club fits right in. During the first session the women told a little bit about themselves, said Pam Greer, and now conversation can be free-flowing or they can pick specific topics. By the second session they seemed to be at ease with each other as they bantered back and forth. "Janet's a professional colorer," Pam Greer said. "I am not," replied Janet Serivnor, chuckling as she looked down by her feet where a binder of finished coloring pieces sat. SEE COLORING, A10

FROM COLORING, A9 After a little prodding, Serivnor showed her binder filled with vibrant, eye-popping designs. These are not your children's coloring books. In the last two years adult coloring has become a growing trend, often categorized as a stress-reliever. "Gets your mind off other stuff," said Nora Gates. The group had an assortment of adult coloring books: "Tattoo Art," "Magical Mandalas," "Enchanted Forest," and "Stained Glass," and small books with butterflies, flowers and mandalas. Mandalas are very popular, said Pam Greer, "because the design itself is supposed to be soothing to the mind." The complex, symmetrical designs are based on an ancient form of meditative art, according to one coloring book. Kunkel and Debra Rosasco worked together on a large sheet with a mandala that had been started with the fall coloring class. "It would be gorgeous to finish it," said Rosasco. "This is my commitment," noted Kunkel. Serivnor is the only one who regularly colors at home. "We can either call her a professional or a fanatic," Pam said, eliciting laughs. None of the women are artists, although Price said her first major "centuries ago" was art. Now the 77-year-old is working on a doctorate in botanical medicine. To further provide a calming ambiance, Haeli Greer played a Hapi drum, a steel tongue drum used for percussive beats, at the first class. On Feb. 9 meditative music played in the background. "We have a great group of ladies now," said Ramona branch Librarian Chelsie Harris. Though only women are currently participating, the program is open to men. "Men are welcome definitely," said Harris. The librarian said she hopes the program grows and they can invite people in to teach color theory.

Cycle Dawgs prepare for seventh season BY DAN BROWN In 2010, former school board member Arvie Degenfelder approached Ramona High School teacher Robert Grace about creating a wheeled component to the Ramona Trails Association. She asked Grace to gather some students for a meeting where Degenfelder presented them with the information on mountain bike racing as a high school club sport. Degenfelder knew of Grace’s background in cycling. There was enough interest that Grace was put in touch with the league director, and a new club sport at Ramona High School was born. Seven years later Grace is still the head coach with numerous individual and team victories, a state champion, and a nationally ranked rider. He now has four assistant coaches: Dave Heiar, Ron Bacas, and Rodney Linder, who have been with the program since 2013, and Steve Venolia, who has been with the program since 2015. Coming out of one of their more successful seasons last year when the team took third place in Division 1 out of 14 teams and fourth at the state race, the team is looking forward to the start of the upcoming season. The Cycle Dawgs begin their training for the season with 10-mile rides and working on their skills. They work on proper shifting, turns, riding through cones, obstacles and dips, and balancing (track stand). They progress to longer rides

NOW OPEN FRIDAYS

Robert Grace, Ramona Cycle Dawgs head coach, holds a 2015 first place team trophy won at Lake Perris. throughout the season out to Black Canyon, Orosco Ridge, Sutherland Dam, Barnett Ranch, and later in the season when it stays light longer, Mt. Woodson. They typically ride on Tuesdays and Thursdays, on Wednesday evenings from CC Cycles, and on the weekends with one of the coaches. Grace’s top priority each season is for his riders to have fun. His philosophy is what he calls the four “F’s”. Have

“Fun,” “Finish” what you start, do it a little “Faster” next time, and “Fight” for position. All results for the upcoming season can be found on www.socaldirt.org — click on the results tab. The team will participate in numerous team building events just before and during the season including team dinners and camping outings. The team competes in four divisions: Varsity, junior varsity, sophomore, and freshman. The top eight riders contribute to each team score and must have boys and girls compete in divisions. The team achieves scoring by accruing pre-determined points by where they place. The first place varsity receives 570 points and each place after that has a lower score. The point total for first place in other divisions begins at lower points. The team with the highest overall point total for all races is the winner. The Cycle Dawgs’ first race of the season will be at Lake Perris in Riverside. The team will spend the weekend at each race with most of the team camping. They ride over the courses on Saturday. Some events have middle school races, and the high school races are on Sundays. The team also races at Vail Lake in Temecula , Keyesville by Lake Isabella, and Tehachapi by Bakersfield. The state race will be at Petaluma, north of San Fransisco.

Bulldog senior Ashlyn Everett goes for the basket during Ramona’s 47-33 home win over Escondido on Feb. 7.

BY JOE NAIMAN Ramona High School's girls basketball team extended its Valley League winning streak to 36 games before a 59-54 loss Feb. 10 at Fallbrook. The loss to the Warriors was the first defeat for Ramona in league competition since Feb. 15, 2013, when the Bulldogs concluded the 2012-13 regular season with a 52-42 loss at Del Norte. The streak of 36 consecutive girls basketball league victories shares 10th place in CIF San Diego Section history. The win streak reached 35 games with a 43-37 home victory Feb. 3 against San Pasqual. The Bulldogs outscored the Golden Eagles by a 10-4 margin during the first period, but a 15-7 San Pasqual advantage in the second quarter gave the Golden Eagles a 19-17 halftime lead. Ramona scored 14 of the 24 third-period points to hold a 31-29 advantage entering the final period, when the Bulldogs outscored San Pasqual by a 12-8 margin. The win gave Ramona a share of 11th place on the all-time consecutive league victory list. Holtville High School won 35

the final standings. Fallbrook's only two losses of the 2015-16 league season were to the Bulldogs, giving the Warriors second place among the league's teams. In the first round of 2016-17 league play Jan. 24 at Ramona, the Bulldogs overcame a 1-point Fallbrook lead to prevail, 59-54. That victory gave the Bulldogs a one-game lead over Fallbrook in the standings, but the Bulldogs and Warriors each won their next three games so Ramona took a 6-0 league record into the rematch while Fallbrook entered the game with a 5-1 mark. "We knew what was on the line for this game," said Fallbrook coach Tony Morrow. "We came out fired up. The girls were a lot more aggressive." Morrow also utilized a different formation, playing four guards to achieve better matchups. The Bulldogs held a 12-9 lead at the end of the first quarter and were ahead by a 21-19 margin at halftime, but in the third quarter Fallbrook outscored Ramona by a 20-10 margin to take a 39-31 lead. Ramona shared the 2012-13 Valley League championship with Del Norte and Oceanside while winning the 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2015-16 league titles outright. SEE BASKETBALL, A22

Prep Boys Basketball

Bulldogs clinch share of Valley League title

Championship a game away

BY JOE NAIMAN If Ramona High School's boys basketball team defeats Valley Center in Friday's home game, the Bulldogs will win the league championship outright. But even if the Jaguars spoil Ramona's Senior Night celebration the Bulldogs will have at least a share of the league title. The Bulldogs avenged their only league loss of the season when they defeated Escondido at home Feb. 7 and maintained their one-game lead over the Cougars, who lost Jan. 31 at Valley Center, with a Feb. 10 win at Fallbrook. The 61-54 victory on the Warriors' court gave Ramona a 6-1 league record, which is part of a 15-13 overall statistic. Escondido's Jan. 20 victory over the Bulldogs was the sole blemish on Ramona's 3-1 mark during the first round of league play. The Bulldogs commenced the second half of their league schedule Feb. 3 with a 71-39 home victory over San Pasqual. "It was a good night," said Ramona coach Dan Marshall. "They played well." Blake Seits led the Bulldogs with 19 points against San Pasqual, Jake Newman provided 15 points, and Austin Pierce sank shots worth 13 points. "We shot well," Marshall said. The 64-61 victory over Escondido broke the tie for first place in Ramona's favor. "We did not lead in the game until the final shot," Marshall said. The final shot was Seits' missed free throw attempt after he was fouled during a 3-point shot that went into the net with three seconds left. "We set a play at the end of the game and Blake just seared the point guard," Marshall said.

Those 3 points gave Seits 36 for the game, including 20 in the second half and 18 in the fourth quarter. "We needed every one of those," Marshall said. The Cougars had a 31-22 halftime lead. "They kind of had our number. We kind of had a formula we were sticking to," Marshall said. "They were tracking us down." Ramona's second-half adjustments included presses and 1-3-1 traps. "They still put some numbers up in the fourth, but we put up bigger numbers," Marshall said. "It was pretty satisfying to come back and beat them the way we did. It was a pretty satisfying victory for the boys." The 7-point margin of victory at Fallbrook was less of a difference than Ramona's 35-22 lead at halftime, but that was not due to any second-half deterioration on the Bulldogs' part. A team with a significant but not safe lead will focus on ball control while the team with the deficit will take shots quicker and often from behind the 3-point line. "They hit some big shots to even be that close," Marshall said. Fallbrook had one 3-point basket in the first half but two in the third quarter and four in the fourth period. "Fallbrook didn't go away. In fact, they hit big shots. They just ran out of time," Marshall said. "They took care of the basketball at the end of the game." The Warriors were only able to do that when they had possession. "When you're on the road you take the win by being smart with the basketball," Marshall said. Seits scored 19 points against Fallbrook, Pierce contributed 13 points, and Newman placed 12 points into the net. "We're a better team when Jake, Austin, and Blake are all in double figures," Marshall said. Skyler Marushige had 12 rebounds at Fallbrook. SEE TITLE, A22

Prep Boys Soccer

Team earns second in league Friday win will place Dawgs fourth in league BY JOE NAIMAN For the third consecutive year the girls water polo teams of Ramona High School and Fallbrook High School brought 4-0 Valley League records into the league finale between the Bulldogs and the Warriors, and for the third year Fallbrook captured the league championship while Ramona settled for a 4-1 league record and second place. The Feb. 9 game at Fallbrook ended with a 10-7 score in Fallbrook’s favor. “It’s tough to lose another league title up there in Fallbrook,” said Ramona coach Donnie Williams. “The girls really wanted to get that.” The CIF playoff seeding and selection meeting Feb. 11 gave Fallbrook the eighth seed among Division I teams. Ramona merited the ninth seed, but because seeding is adjusted so that league opponents do not face each other in the first round the Bulldogs were given the 10th seed and a first-round playoff game Feb. 15 at seventh-seeded Granite Hills for the right to face Torrey Pines in the Feb. 18 quarterfinal at La Jolla High School’s Coggan Pool. The loss to Fallbrook, along with a 10-6 home victory Feb. 7 against San Marcos, gave Ramona a final regular-season record of 15-11. “I’m very proud of them,” said Williams, commenting on their growth through the season. Ramona had a 2-5 record after the first month of the season, so the win over San Marcos gave the Bulldogs 13 wins in an 18-game stretch. Ramona had to overcome two deficits against the Knights, as San Marcos junior Isabella Virzi scored the game’s first two goals and had five of the game’s first seven successful shots. Virzi scored all six San Marcos goals. “They had one girl who could really shoot,” Williams said. “It took us a while to figure out how to defend her.” Ramona senior Kelsey Sherman would also finish the game with six goals, and her two in the first period created a 2-2 tie at the end of the quarter. Virzi scored three times in the second period to give the Knights a 5-2 lead, but two goals by Sherman and one by Maddie Schwegler tied the game and the halftime score was 5-5. SEE WATER POLO, A22

BY JOE NAIMAN Ramona will honor the 16 seniors on the Ramona High School boys soccer team during Senior Night ceremonies that will precede the home match with Valley Center on Thursday. Ramona coach Michael Jordan had hoped to honor the seniors in a better way during the season. "It's been a terribly disappointing season," said Jordan. "All the elements are there except the winning of games." If Ramona defeats Valley Center, the Bulldogs and Jaguars will share fourth place in the final five-team Valley League standings while a Valley Center win will give the Bulldogs sole possession of last place. Jordan notes that a higher position in the league standings will likely translate into additional all-league players. "I'd like to increase my numbers for that," he said. Ramona's current record is 5-11-6 and the Bulldogs are now 0-7-1 in league competition. The CIF playoff selection and seeding meeting is Saturday, and Thursday's regular-season finale could also be the Bulldogs' last 2016-17 game. The Bulldogs lost all four games during the first round of league play, including a 2-0 loss Jan. 17 at San Pasqual to open league competition. The Golden Eagles led the league standings when they traveled to

Ramona junior Mario Gonzales scored the sole first-half goal. San Pasqual had the initial goal in the second half. A goal by senior Andrick Molinero gave Ramona a 2-1 lead. The Golden Eagles then scored twice for a 3-2 advantage. In the final two minutes, senior Chato Castro scored the tying goal. "We fought back to have the draw,"

Athletes treated to luncheon on college signing day BY JOE NAIMAN amona High School held a luncheon Feb. 2 to honor the seven seniors who have signed commitments to play college sports. Hanah Bowen will play softball for the University of Arizona, Adrian Collazo committed to play baseball at Point Loma Nazarene University, Jordyn Fick signed a softball letter of intent with San Diego State University, Gwendalyn Gibson will be on the Colorado Mesa University bicycling team, Jamie Roe will be on the softball team at La Sierra University in Riverside, Cameron Rowles signed to play baseball with New Mexico State University, and Samantha “Sammy” Shupe will have a college volleyball career at Northeastern University in Boston. "I'm obviously very proud," said Ramona High Athletic Director Damon Baldwin. "It's just nice to see kids get opportunities to continue to compete … Student-athletes put in so much time outside of academia. There's so much sacrifice that goes into making something like that happen." "I'm really excited to commit there," Gibson said. "I'm really excited and very honored," Bowen said of her letter of intent. "It was a good feeling," said Fick. "I'm excited." "I'm fortunate to have a school that has accepted me for my sports and my academics, to welcome me into their school and let me play the sport I love,"

Ramona High School Athletic Director Damon Baldwin holds Ramona High Athletic Signing Day at the school. Standing from left are Baldwin, Cameron Rowles, Jordan Fick, and Adrian Collazo. Seated are Gwendalyn Gibson, Sammy Shupe, Hanah Bowen, and Jamie Roe.

Roe said. "It's really exciting for me and my family," said Collazo. "It's one of the biggest days in my life," Rowles said. "I've been working for this moment the last 12 years of my life." "I've been waiting to do this for a very long time," Shupe said. "There's a lot of relief and it's very exciting." Gibson is on Ramona High’s Cycle Dawgs team that participates in competitive bicycle races and is coached by Robert Grace. "I'm real proud of her," Grace said of Gibson's scholarship, noting that playing college sports is the dream of many student-athletes. "She was able to achieve that. It's been very much a treat to watch Gwen set those goals and go after those goals and actually achieve them." The Grand Junction location will allow Gibson proximity to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. "It gets her in the door where she can train with the U.S. cycling team," Grace said. Gibson was at the Olympic Training Center in November for a training camp and expects to make the visit to the Olympic Training Center approximately twice a year. She was also on Ramona High's cross-country team and as a junior and a senior won the Valley League championship and qualified for the state meet. Gibson was considering an offer to run at the University of California, San Diego, and was also considering Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo., before choosing Colorado Mesa. "I fell in love with the campus," Gibson said. "After visiting Colorado Mesa, I decided that's where I wanted to be." Gibson plans to major in kinesiology and minor in business. One option she is contemplating is a career in sports medicine or physical therapy, and her business minor would also allow her to be a sales manager in the bicycle industry. Bowen was considering San Diego State University, Michigan State, Texas A&M, and the University of Utah before choosing Arizona. "The first time I stepped on the campus it just felt like home and it was a good environment. I just loved the coaches and players as well," she said. Bowen plans to major in sports medicine and hopes to have a career as an athletic trainer. "She's going to fit right in with Arizona," said RHS softball coach Kristina Wright. "Hanah is a bulldog on the field, no pun intended. She is just a fierce competitor."

FROM SIGNING DAY, A16 “We are very excited about Hanah and feel we have a player that brings a great softball skill set while also being a high character person that will be a tremendous teammate and a great addition to our program,” said University of Arizona head softball coach Mike Candrea. Fick was contemplating an offer from Colorado State University before deciding to stay in San Diego County. In addition to the opportunity to play close to her hometown, the Aztecs' program was a factor in her choice of schools. "I like the coaches," she said. She will major in biology at San Diego State and plans a career as a veterinarian. "Jordyn is such an awesome person to have on the team," Wright said. "She has such a great attitude." Roe was considering attending Iona University in New York and Montana State University before choosing a campus closer to Ramona. She has not yet selected a major, but she is hoping for a career in law enforcement or as a firefighter. Bowen, Fick, and Roe are among six seniors expected to play for Ramona High’s softball team this spring. "I think that all three of them have exemplified great leadership on the field and off the field," Wright said. "They're going to do

very well at the next level. I'm very excited for them." Collazo was mulling opportunities at the University of Pacific and the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs before deciding to play baseball for Point Loma Nazarene. "It's a smart school and it's close to home," he said. His business major will allow Collazo a planned career as a stockbroker. Collazo played on the Bulldogs' freshman squad in 2013 and moved up to varsity as a sophomore. "He's a flat-out gamer and he's got a very good feel of the game and he doesn't back down to anybody. I can't remember a time when he

didn't come through," said Ramona baseball coach Dean Welch. "He just energizes the team. He competes at a very high level every single day." Joe Schaefer, the head baseball coach at Point Loma Nazarene, said he is excited to have Collazo on his team next year. “We love the way he plays the game,” said Schaefer. “He is athletic, strong, and versatile. “Adrian is a great teammate and has a very good idea at the plate. He should develop into an impact player for us, and we look forward to seeing him contribute next year.” Rowles was considering Florida International University, San Jose State University, the University of California at Riverside, and

www.ramonasentinel.com California State University Bakersfield before New Mexico State University became his selection. "The coaches were perfect to me. Everything that they offered me was perfect," he said. New Mexico State University is in Las Cruces, and that town's character was also a factor in Rowles' decision. "It's like a bigger Ramona," he said. Rowles intends to major in kinesiology and hopes for a sports medicine career once his playing days conclude. "I want to be around something that I love," he said. "He's a very exciting player. He's the kind of guy who whenever he

steps in the box you'd better be watching because he can change the game in a hurry," Welch said. "He's a tremendous defender with a cannon for an arm." Brian Green, head baseball coach at New Mexico State, said the university’s baseball program “is extremely excited to welcome Cameron and the Rowles family to the Aggie family. Cameron showed the skills necessary to make an impact on the field in Las Cruces, and after spending time with the family we were convinced that it would be a great fit.” Shupe was considering University of California campuses in San Diego and Davis and was contacted by other schools. One of those was Northeastern, where she plans to major in marine biology. "I had never heard of the school before," she said. Northeastern's internship program was the primary factor in Shupe's college choice. "It turns out they have a pretty good program called the co-op program," she said. "It's a lot easier to find jobs once they graduate," Shupe said. “You'll be getting that job experience while you're going to school." "It's very exciting," said Ramona volleyball coach Connie Halfaker. "It's a real good match for her ... She's going to be very ready to step in and play at that next level, and I'm sure she's going to continue a very successful career."

The plaque Mary Anderson received from district trustees includes a quote from an unknown author: “Live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it.” More than Mary’s academics set her apart, said her teacher, Roberta Nau. “She has a way about her that is really unconditional positive regard for everyone that she meets,” said Nau. Principal Robin Arend showed a short video that included comments from some of Mary’s classmates. Among student quotes: “She’s very nice, and I don’t think she’s ever gotten mad;” “She encourages others to do something that they are scared of;” “She plays

Virzi was held to one goal in the second half. “What we started to do is just double-team that girl up on top,” Williams said. “We got a bunch of goals out of that.” Sherman and Schwegler had goals in the third quarter to give Ramona a 7-5 cushion entering the final period. Sherman’s final high school goal at home provided the Bulldogs with an 8-5 advantage before Virzi closed out scoring for San Marcos. Avery Campa and Katelynn Dodd concluded the goals on Ramona’s behalf. “I think our defense is fine,” Williams said. Williams was also satisfied with Ramona’s offense. “Their goalie made a lot of point-blank saves,” he said. The score of the 2015 game between Fallbrook and Ramona at Fallbrook’s pool was 4-3 in the Warriors’ favor, and Fallbrook prevailed by a 13-8 margin in the 2016 match at Ramona. “I figured it would be a close game,” Williams said. “Unfortunately we gave up a penalty shot in the first 15 seconds.” Schwegler tied the score 30 seconds later, but the Warriors held a 4-1 lead when the buzzer to end the quarter sounded. “Our defense broke down late in that period,” said Williams. The Bulldogs also had some struggles on offense. “We had a lot of shots in that period, but everything we shot was over the cage or on the bar,” Williams said. Second-quarter goals by Schwegler and Campa narrowed Ramona’s deficit to 4-3. “We were back into a close game,” their coach said. The Warriors scored twice in the final two minutes of the period for a 6-3 halftime lead. “We had opportunities to keep it close and we didn’t do that,” said Williams. Sherman scored on Ramona’s first possession of the third quarter to make the score 6-4. Fallbrook scored later in the period and then scored at the buzzer to take an 8-4 lead into the final quarter. Ramona had three extra-player opportunities during the third period and did not convert any of those. “We’ve got to be better with that,” Williams said. Fallbrook scored first in the final quarter before goals by Schwegler, Campa, and Sherman reduced the deficit to 9-7 with 2:30 left. “The girls fought back,” Williams said. “We had some good momentum going.”

He made a motion to support Option 8 with the addition of a ban on all outdoor advertising and signage for medicinal and non-medicinal marijuana. That had been an item proposed in an option submitted Feb. 9 to the Planning Commission. Woods said Option 8 would include no amortization provision that would give operating dispensaries up to 5½ years to recoup their investment and then shut them down. “I know the board (of supervisors) wanted to ban but I don’t believe in a ban,” said Woods. “I believe we should have no more storefronts — that is the ban part — other than the ones we have identified in Option 8.” His motion passed 4-1 with Commissioner Michael Seiler opposed. Allowing farmers to grow cannabis was an issue brought up several times during the hearing. Seiler said he did not think there should be a ban on cultivation. Woods suggested the commission visit that issue in 2018, which is when the state will begin allowing sales and taxation of recreational marijuana as approved by voters in

FROM TITLE, A12 Marushige, Newman, Pierce, Seits, and Even Reichner are Ramona's seniors who will be honored during Senior Night on Friday. "I think they represent the school and the community as well as any kids I've ever coached," Marshall said. Ramona had a 9-12 record prior to league play. "It's nice to get into league and have some success," Marshall said. "We have a chance at a playoff home game." Saturday's CIF playoff seeding and selection meeting will determine the Division II playoff brackets including home courts.

FROM BASKETBALL, A11 Fallbrook's previous league championship was in 2006-07, when the Warriors were in the Avocado League and had a 9-1 circuit record. The Feb. 10 game was Senior Night for Fallbrook. Ramona's Senior Night is Friday, when the Bulldogs host Valley Center. Saturday's CIF playoff selection and seeding meeting will determine additional 2016-17 play for the Bulldogs, who hold a 9-15 overall record along with their 6-1 league figure.

FROM SOCCER, A13 his own direct kick that had been deflected off the defenders' wall and placed that second shot into the net. Escondido produced all of the second-half scoring in the Cougars' 3-1 triumph. Fallbrook improved its league record to 4-2-1 with a Feb. 9 home win at Ramona's expense. "Fallbrook is a tough match-up for us,” said Jordan. “They're a lot like us, kind of fast, possess pretty well." The Warriors held a 2-0 halftime lead and finalized the score at 5-0. "It's been a long time since we've lost a game like that," Jordan said. Ramona's previous league loss by at least a five-goal margin was a 6-0 contest on Feb. 11, 2011, at Poway when Ramona was in the Palomar League.

FROM BRIDGES, A1 chance for people to get to know each other as well as become informed about how the group functions, using the national Indivisible guide, said Conrad. The guide, she added, “has a pragmatic approach.” Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda states in its online introduction that it offers a step-by-step guide for individuals, groups,

November through Proposition 64. Woods said they could then consider whether to allow farmers to grow cannabis in a covered 5,000-square-foot area on land zoned A72, as some have requested. The current ordinance only allows indoor cultivation in industrial areas. Speakers during the testimony included those who were for a ban, citing the impact marijuana has on youth, and those against a ban, telling of the drug’s medicinal benefits. Consultant Chris Brown, representing a group of dispensary owners, said if there is a ban, there will likely be an initiative to overturn it. One of those owners, Lincoln Fish, of Outliers in El Cajon, said, “I know of roughly 40 groups, and I’m sure there are more, who have a strong interest in seeing an initiative in the county.” No community planning groups were represented at the hearing. Ramona Community Planning Group member Jim Cooper attended as a private citizen as the group’s recommendation to support Option 8 at the hearing failed 7-3 on Feb. 2 with five members absent and a majority eight votes needed for approval. Two dispensaries are currently legally

operating in the unincorporated county: ShowGrow at 736 Montecito Way in Ramona, and Outliers in El Cajon. The owners of four locations that had county-issued building permits before the Board of Supervisors adopted a moratorium last March were determined to have the vested rights to proceed. Of those four, two are in Ramona, 1210 Olive St. and 618 Pine St.; one is in Valley Center; and the other is for Outliers’ facility expansion for cultivation. Dino Berardino volunteered to not open his dispensary at 618 Pine St. but instead focus on one in El Cajon. Although a building permit was issued for his El Cajon site, it is not vested, according to a chart from county Planning and Development Services. Five other applications for building permits for medical marijuana facilities had been submitted to PDS: in Ramona at 2471 Montecito Road and at 2338 Montecito Road, two in Lakeside and one in Julian. The Planning Commission’s recommendation will go to the Board of Supervisors, which is expected to consider a ban ordinance before the moratorium expires on March 16.

and organizations “looking to replicate the Tea Party’s success in getting Congress to listen to a small, vocal, dedicated group of constituents. The guide is intended to be equally useful for stiffening Democratic spines and weakening pro-Trump Republican resolve.” Conrad said the goals center around American values, focus on certain policies of the administration and seek discussions with U.S. lawmakers. According to Beauregard, they have been

trying to get Congressman Duncan Hunter to hold a town hall meeting. Indivisible’s website, www.indivisibleguide.com, states that “more than 4,500 local groups have signed up to resist the Trump agenda in nearly every congressional district in the country.” In San Diego County several Indivisible groups have also been started in Valley Center, Escondido, San Marcos, San Diego, and Alpine.

Prep Wrestling

Bulldogs finish second in CIF dual meet BY DAN BROWN Due to Ramona High wrestling team’s successful season, the Bulldogs received a bye in the first round of the CIF duals on Saturday. The No. 2 seed Ramona faced the No. 3 seed Mt. Carmel in the second round. Ramona defeated Mt. Carmel, 44-31, to advance to the championship Division III dual match. While Ramona was facing Mt. Carmel, Brawley High School was powering through to the championship match. Brawley is one of the top teams in the state and ranked No. 1

in San Diego Division III. The opportunity for Ramona to square up against this caliber of a team could have been an indicator of how Ramona might stack up against the truly elite teams in California. Ramona, however, managed only 9 points with a pin by Jeff Ramsthaler and Travis Johnson's 6-3 decision win. Next for the Bulldogs are the CIF individual championships at Brawley High School. Top six places will advance to Masters (county finals), which is the state qualifying tournament.

Alumni Report

Blankenbaker wins college division at Armory meet BY JOE NAIMAN Dylan Blankenbaker won numerous cross-country and track races for Ramona High School before he graduated in 2012. He now runs for the University of Oklahoma, and on Feb. 3 he won the college division mile at The Armory Invitational meet in Queens, N.Y. Blankenbaker set a personal record of 4:03 in the race. "It was good to be competitive and win the race," he said. "I had hoped to run faster, but I can't be too upset with a win and a PR."

The Armory Invitational, part of the indoor track and field season, was contested on a banked track with 200-meter laps. Eleven runners were in the college division race, and Blankenbaker was in lane six when the starter's gun was fired. "I got stuck behind some of the guys. I didn't get a really good jump off the line," he said. Blankenbaker took the lead with approximately 500 meters remaining (a mile is approximately 1,600 meters). "I was able to move up and get out

towards the front," he said. Blankenbaker's goal was to run the mile in under four minutes. Had he taken a faster opening pace he might have avoided the congestion with the other runners but he also might not have been able to save his stamina for the end of the race. "I wasn't really sure whether I would have broken four minutes or not," he said. Blankenbaker is a senior at the University of Oklahoma this year. "I'm happy to have won the race," he said. "It's always a pleasure to win."

County ‘stronger, more resilient,’ says Jacob BY PAUL LEVIKOW City News Service—Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Dianne Jacob Wednesday outlined seven ways to better serve the public in the annual State of the County address, including improving streets, building parks, tackling the pension problem, serving seniors, increasing technology, maintaining public safety, and building bonds in the community. “Sacramento and Washington are often snake Dianne pits. That's not us,” Jacob said, Jacob referring to her colleagues on the board. “We're not about chaos, we're about competence. We're not about gridlock. We get things done.” Jacob said the board faces new and emerging challenges, but has come a long way. “The state of our county is stronger today, more resilient, more financially sound, because when it matters most, we pull together,” Jacob said. “And we may need to pull together this year like never before, if cuts and shifts at the state level proposed by Governor Brown go through.” The county budget may face a $100 million hit if Brown’s state budget is approved and anticipated changes in California's health insurance marketplace are made, according to Jacob. “Shift and shaft by the state is nothing new. We've seen it before,” Jacob said. “And we stand ready to fight once again and we will fight back.” In her roughly 35-minute speech to a standing-room-only crowd at the County Operations Center in Kearny Mesa, Jacob enumerated the seven areas that the board will focus on in 2017.

“Seven ways we can build an even better county government, seven ways that we can better serve the public and lay out a road map for the future,” said Jacob, who is in her seventh four-year term on the board. “Seven ways we make sure we pass on a county government that serves the people and does the people proud.” The first item was maintaining the county's 2,000 miles of streets. “We've got a big problem now where the rubber meets the road,” she said. “Our main source of money for maintenance is running out.” The county's parks system was next on the list. She said the supervisors need to strip away barriers to building more parks. Confronting the county's pension challenge was third. Jacob said recent changes to the system will save the pension fund $1 billion over the next 20 years. Preparing for the so-called “silver surge” was another top priority, because residents aged 65 and older are the fastest growing segment of the county and expected to double in 20 years. Jacob said she will propose establishing a new position at the county that will be focused on serving the senior community and become the top advocate for the elderly. The county has established a smart phone application, “Tell Us Now,” for county residents to communicate with officials in its effort to become more tech-friendly. “We're all about better, cheaper, faster, and this is another way to do just that,” Jacob said. While it was mentioned sixth, Jacob said it was the supervisors’ “most important” job to keep the public safe and vowed that the county would “stay battle-ready” on law enforcement and firefighting fronts. Building bonds in divided communities was the final item on the Jacob to-do list.

Winding Down BY DAVE PATTERSON

Watch what you buy

W

atch what you buy. One large impact on everyone is inflation, and for some time I have been watching the cost of food go up, while inflation is not frequently reported. As an example, food packaging has shrunk significantly but the cost has gone up or remained about the same. Selling a 4-pound bag of sugar for what used to be a 5-pound bag for the same cost is in my book inflation of 20%. Slices of bread seem to be smaller, cereal boxes much thinner, and cans of soup tinier than I remember. Normally food hikes would be all over the news with the suppliers answering embarrassing questions, but this inflation remains under the radar for some reason. The impact on the recently retired is not so much because I can afford to eat less, but for older retirees and families with children, there may not be a substitute. I for one will begin the habit of eating a little less, and every time I go to the grocery store purchase some canned food for the Food and Clothes Closet. Just think what could happen if we all did this on a regular basis? Maybe I’ll be looking a little thinner and feeling better, too! Another habit that I have developed over time is to scrutinize something before making a purchase. It helps that my wife and I never buy something of large value without at least considering it over lunch, away from the salesman. More often than not we forgo the purchase altogether. Many years ago we were looking at a used car when we told the salesman that we would go home and think about it. The salesman cried that statistically

that meant that we would not return to complete the purchase. Exactly! Continuing on this theme, I don’t like paying 100% for something that is less than 100%. For example, I refuse to purchase less than whole milk because paying full price for a carton that’s only 1% or 2% milk shouldn’t be 100% the same price as whole milk. For big purchases like automobiles we no longer buy new, but prefer Budget Rent-a-car. I like buying from rental agencies because they keep good records on maintenance and generally they won’t sell a car that has problems directly to a consumer. Thus our savings are great at purchase, and our maintenance costs very low. Of course I won’t buy certain cars for the same reason that I won’t pay full price for a carton of milk containing only 1%. Examples are limited edition cars. Why would we want to purchase a car that has limitations? And lately the big push is for hybrid cars that are part car and part something else. I had a pet once that was part dog and part something else, and I got it for free! Lastly I am glad that I haven’t felt wanted to buy high end things that can be dangerous, such as exploding washing machines, call phones, hover boards and recently cars that are possessed. The latest is a high-end car where the door might open when you open a window. Sounds like a 55 Chevy my friend had where the radio would go on and off when running the windshield wipers. Such a car should be cheap, not expensive, as was the 55 Chevy in the mid 60s. Even a teenager could afford one with a part-time job.
