Couple ordered to stand trial for home invasion, police car theft in Pacific Beach BY NEAL PUTNAM | BEACH & BAY PRESS

A couple was ordered last week to stand trial for committing a home invasion robbery in Pacific Beach and stealing a police car, which was driven into the ocean on Fiesta Island. Six witnesses testified in the preliminary hearing of James Lee Graham, 40, and Stephanie Nicole Majsterski, 25, that was conducted by San Diego Superior Court Judge Fred Link. Link ordered them to also stand trial for residential burglary, false imprisonment, and resisting arrest. They will get a trial date on April 25. Caroline Souza testified the couple robbed her of her wallet, cell phone, and laptops after entering her home Dec. 14, 2017 in the 2100 block of Pacific Beach Drive. Souza, who was seven months pregnant at the time, said Graham told her “give me your money and car.” “It scared me a lot and I was afraid he would hurt me as I was pregnant and he might hurt the baby,” testified Souza. Souza said she was frightened and thought Graham may have had a weapon, but she didn’t see one. She said they both walked into her home through an unlocked door around 9:10 p.m. Officer Alfredo Nafarrege testified he responded to a radio call of a robbery and saw a man and woman about three blocks from the apart-

ment. He yelled “stop!” but the couple ran in opposite directions. Nafarrege arrested Graham and when he took him to where he had left the patrol car, he discovered it was gone. He initially thought another officer had moved it. “I’ve never had my patrol car taken,” said Nafarrege. The police car was apparently kept running when Nafarrege and his partner saw the couple and chased after them. Rafael Mendoza testified he was at Fiesta Island at 9:30 p.m. with his exgirlfriend when he saw a police patrol car drive into the water. Mendoza identified Majsterski as the woman who got out of the car and fled. Officer Brian Kashouty was one of dozens of officers who responded to a 911 call about the patrol car in the water off Fiesta Island. “She was soaking wet and trying to hide on the island,” said Kashouty, who said Majsterski was covered with sand. “She refused to let me handcuff her. She was thrashing her body back

and forth,” said Kashouty, who added he needed three other officers to take her into custody. Two detectives testified they found the stolen laptops and other property in a gully and in a bag, which had the identification of Majsterski. Attorney Denis Lainez, who represents Graham, argued he shouldn’t have to stand trial for auto theft or resisting arrest as that was allegedly committed by Majsterski. He also argued there was insufficient evidence of false imprisonment. Deputy District Attorney Lucille Yturralde argued that Graham should stand trial for stealing the patrol car even though Majsterski took it because they both were participating in a crime spree. Link ruled that Graham should stand trial for stealing the patrol car as an aider and abettor of Majsterski. Yturralde said Graham was convicted of committing 10 robberies in a four-month series in 2008 in San Diego and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was on parole when the home invasion robbery occurred. As a third strike defendant, Graham faces 63 years to life in prison if he’s convicted. Majsterski faces up to nine years if she is convicted, said the prosecutor. Graham remains in the George Bailey Detention Facility on $600,000 bail while Majsterski remains in the Las Colinas Women’s Detention Facility on $300,000 bail. Both have pleaded not guilty.

PB man will go to trial for murder of uncle BY NEAL PUTNAM | BEACH & BAY PRESS

A Pacific Beach man was ordered earlier this month to stand trial for murder in the stabbing death of his 66-year-old uncle. Seven witnesses testified in the preliminary hearing of Randy Bautista Baisa, 37, who is charged with killing Merlino Baustista in the apartment they shared at 1855 Diamond St. on Jan. 17. San Diego Police detective Sgt. Luke Johnson testified Baisa was living with his uncle after he was released from some type of program. Baustista had “taken in Randy” several times before, but also kicked him out previously due to his drug problem and mental health issues, he added. Johnson said Baisa admitted to stabbing his uncle after he was arrested. He said Baisa had several visits to a drug rehabilitation program. A neighbor, Liliana Schlierf, testified Baustista knocked loudly on her door at 1:15 a.m. Jan. 17. She said Baustista had lost a lot of blood and was saying “help me, help me!”

Schlierft said she said Baisa crouched down in the hallway and she said to him, “You did this!” She said he responded by saying “no, no,” and he quickly left. Her husband, Gary Schlierft, testified finding Baustista in a pool of blood in the hallway. He recalled three years ago when the uncle banged on his door to call 911 when his nephew was hallucinating. Police officer Evan Hughes testified paramedics took Baustista to Scripps La Jolla Hospital, but he was pronounced dead at 2:01 a.m. Officer Richard Sullivan told San Diego Superior Court Judge Lorna Alksne he found a kitchen knife on a futon bed in the living room where Baisa was arrested. Detective Robert Korbecki testified Baustista slept on a futon bed in the living room and let his nephew sleep in a bed in the only bedroom. He said there were hand-written instructions taped to a wall for Baisa to do if he becomes manic, such as to “stay in Pacific Beach.” Also there were goals for Baisa to consider that were taped on the wall.

Korbecki said the bent, bloody knife was found on the futon bed where Baustista slept. Dr. Abu Bakr Marzouk, a deputy medical examiner who performed the autopsy, said Baustista suffered 18 stab wounds. He said two wounds to the back also punctured both lungs and were fatal. Marzouk said an artery was severed on Baustista’s arm which also contributed to his death. Deputy District Attorney Scott Pirrello and Baisa’s attorney Stephen Cline submitted the case to Alksne without making any arguments. Alksne said she found probable cause to conclude Baisa committed the murder and ordered him to trial. Cline said his client had “substantial mental health history” that included multiple hospitalizations. Family members attended the hearing. Baisa will return to court April 27 to set a trial date. He has pleaded not guilty and remains in jail on $2 million bail.

Police bust illegal marijuana shop in Pacific Beach On April 18, at approximately 8 a.m., the San Diego Police Department’s Narcotics Unit served search warrants at 4080 Huerfano Ave. in Bay Ho and 2151 Oliver Ave. in Pacific Beach. Both locations were located within residential apartment complexes and were being used to operate an illegal marijuana delivery service called Pacific Highlife. The search warrant yielded approximately 7 pounds of high grade marijuana, 1.5 pounds of concentrated cannabis, $3,000 cash, and business documents and records. An employee was arrested for operating a business without a license and sales of marijuana. The investigation is continuing with charges anticipated for other operators of the business who were not present at the time of the search warrants. As was evident by yesterday’s operation, SDPD and the City Attorney’s office are continuing to conduct enforcement on all illegal marijuana services.

‘Egg and cheese’ ladies helping homeless in Mission Bay BY DAVE SCHWAB | BEACH & BAY PRESS

The homeless of Mariner’s Point in Mission Bay Park know “the egg and cheese” lady who comes to feed them. What they’re probably not aware of is where she comes from: White Sands in La Jolla. The homeless helper is Pat Guerrero, activities director at the retirement center, who now has an accomplice, White Sands resident Lois Ream. On Mondays, during Guerrero’s lunch break, the pair drive down to a homeless camp on Mariner’s Point to hand out eggs, cheese, crackers — and compassion. “You have to look at them, and see them, and let them know that you care,” said Guerrero. “They know our names and they respect us.” “You have to do what you can do,” implored Ream. “You have to do something.” Guerrero brings hard-boiled eggs and string cheese for the homeless because those items can be easily “tucked in a pocket.” Ream brings complementary crackers. Ream collects shoes at White Sands for the homeless. Guerrero brings them new socks. “You can put them on your hands if you’re cold,” she noted.

Pat Guerrero and Lois Ream at White Sands (left) and handing out egg, cheese and crackers to homeless at Mariner’s Point (above).

Both women see homeless aid as part of their life’s mission. And both have skin in the game. Guerrero’s late ex-husband was a recovering alcoholic who felt “safer” on the street. She said, “If I’m feeding this person … maybe someone [else] was helping my husband.” Ream has a homeless, substanceabusing relation in Denver. “We just give from the bottom of our hearts and say, ‘Here it is,’ said Ream. “I don’t think of it as anything else but love.” Why do Guerrero and Ream tend to the homeless? “Even though my ex-husband

isn’t out there anymore, somebody’s husband, somebody’s brother is out there,” said Guerrero. “We’re just helping them get by.” “How do you feel when you finish doing your dishes, or cleaning?, answered Ream. “This is just what I do. I don’t have to feel good — or elated. I’ve done it all my life.” Both women discussed what needs to be done to give the homeless a hand up. “I’d like to see something done about separating the mentally ill from the people dedicated to being homeless,” said Ream, who added she opposes young drug offenders

being thrown into prison, preferring they get job training instead. “What I’d like to see done is just to provide them with the basics: a bathroom, a shower,” said Guerrero. “That would help give them a little sense of their dignity back. We need to give them a purpose, a sense of being validated.” “You’ve got to do it because you’re called to do it,” concluded Ream about aiding the homeless. According to recent statistics from WeAllCount, San Diego County has the fourth-largest homeless population in the United States, with an estimated 9,100 people affected.

Cancer survivors bond on boats and in competition

Sea Dragons to paddle marathon around Mission Bay to raises funds for research

BY DAVE SCHWAB | BEACH & BAY PRESS

How do female San Diegans observe 10 years of surviving and thriving after cancer? Members of Team Survivor Sea Dragons are marking the milestone with a 26.2-mile fundraising dragon boat paddle around Mission Bay on Sunday, May 6. Beginning at the Youth Aquatic Center on Fiesta Island at 8 a.m., this “Round the Bay” event, concluding at dusk, will raise awareness of dragon boating while funding anti-cancer programs. Dragon boats are human-powered watercraft typically entered in the team paddling sport of dragon boat racing, which has ancient roots among contending Chinese villagers. In competition, dragon boats are generally rigged with decorative Chinese dragon heads and tails. Team Survivor San Diego is the local chapter of a national nonprofit offering free fitness programs to female cancer survivors. Those fitness programs include yoga, walking groups and other forms of exercise for cancer-stricken women of all ages and fitness levels, at all stages of cancer treatment and recovery. One of those fitness programs involves dragon boats. Female cancer survivors countywide meet at Mission Bay twice weekly for dragon boat paddling workouts in

‘We actually are a group that likes to laugh a lot. Everyone on the team has a bit of irreverence toward life, which seems to help.’ JEAN SNOW TEAM SURVIVOR SEA DRAGONS

Members of Team Survivor Sea Dragons will paddle around Mission Bay on May 6 on their dragon boat.

preparation for race events held throughout the Western U.S. “It’s a celebration really,” said Team Survivor spokesperson Jean Snow about the May 6 Mission Bay paddle around. “We are also trying to recruit.” Characterizing dragon boating as

“a bit unusual because of the racing aspect,” Snow described Team Survivor’s dragon boat coach, Cheance Adair, a USD employee who donates her time, as “a phenomenal paddling instructor.” Snow said most of the women in Team Survivor are between the ages

of 40 and 70. “But we’ve had teens and women in their mid-70s and 80s,” said Snow. Today, nearly 65 percent of adults diagnosed with cancer in the developed world are expected to live fiveplus years. In the United States, approximately 11 million people –

one in 30 – are currently undergoing or have undergone cancer treatment. “The dragon boat team started gathering in 2007-08,” said Snow, noting the crafts cancer survivors use are donated, while the team itself pretty much pays for mostly everything else, including group insurance, race fees and their room and board while away at competitive races. Snow said dragon boat paddling works well for female cancer survivors who “love the water, outdoors, working out and working together as a team. We actually are a group that likes to laugh a lot. Everyone on the team has a bit of irreverence toward life, which seems to help.” Female cancer survivors don’t dwell on the disease, but rather, said Snow, “Go out and have fun and get past all this stuff.”

Creek to Bay Cleanup this Saturday On Saturday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to noon, more than 6,000 volunteers will participate at I Love A Clean San Diego’s 16th annual Creek to Bay Cleanup. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for a site in their neighborhoods as a way to help the local environment. There are 113 cleanup sites around San Diego County – including Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and Mission Bay – where volunteers may participate. Those interested in getting involved may select a site and register at CreektoBay.org. With a tagline of “Your Neigh-

borhood, Our Environment,” Creek to Bay highlights the importance of acting locally to contribute regionally. Volunteers can get involved at a site in or nearby their neighborhoods and make a difference for the overall health and beauty of the entire county. In 2017, more than 6,500 volunteers removed more than 190,000 pounds of litter and debris during the three-hour event. Volunteers will also be able to enhance their communities through beautification projects. READ MORE ONLINE AT sdnews.com

Pacific Beach AleHouse celebrates a decade of quality brew, food and service BY DAVE SCHWAB | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Pacific Beach AleHouse, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, is truly both a brewery and a restaurant. “We are really 50-50,” said Pacific Beach AleHouse general manager Johnny Leal. “We do focus on food. That’s a big part of what we do. It is brewery food, burgers, tacos, and flatbreads – correlating to what a brewery is doing.” Leal said AleHouse’s menu succeeds because it takes its food seriously. “We hire chefs, we don’t hire kitchen managers,” he said. “The menu we have, changes up seasonally. We make everything here except our bread. Everything’s fresh. We get produce dropped off seven days a week.” Eric Leitstein is founder/CEO of OMG Hospitality Group, which includes PB AleHouse and Backyard Kitchen & Tap. He previously operated now-defunct ‘Canes in Belmont Park. Did the restaurateur ever doubt, when he purchased the restaurant site at 721 Grand Ave. from Harry Taylor a decade ago, that it would be successful? “Not at all,” Leitstein answered. “I never doubted, with our team, that we would still be here in 10 years.”

PACIFIC BEACH ALEHOUSE What: 721 Grand Ave. Hours: Mondays to Fridays 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Saturdays and Sundays 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Hoppy hour: Mondays to Fridays 3 to 6 p.m. Info: pbalehouse.com.

PB AleHouse is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an ’80s-themed party from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25 with food and drinks, plus performances by DJ Grimm and MS MO.

Leitstein’s optimism stems in part from his passion for the food-bar business. “I love Pacific Beach and the evolution of its restaurants and bars,” he said, adding he only invests in businesses “that fit in with the community.” Leitstein praised the PB commu-

nity for “embracing the Alehouse, [once] the only brewery down at the beach.” Leal said the restaurant’s clientele is “different by the day, different by the time of day,” including everyone from the “twenty-somethings” you’d expect at a beach bar to families.

“Our mentality is we are a family restaurant all the time,” Leal said. “At 10 p.m., we’re not. That’s when it turns into the nightlife. But we’re going to cater to families.” Family is the word Leitstein uses to characterize PB AleHouse. Leal concurs, offering an example of how

“family” helps one another out. He spoke of one employee uncertain about their future who expressed interest in joining the military but kept putting it off. Leal himself finally took him around to military recruiting offices and the employee chose the Army. He said that employee later returned to thank him for “changing his life.” Leitstein said the restaurant business in PB is changing for the better. “It used to be you couldn’t go out to eat at a really good restaurant or have a cocktail, but now you have lots of decent restaurants with great menus,” he said. “Now PB is not just a mecca for party revelers, but is a big part of the San Diego culinary scene.” Good service, having a quality product and being friendly to people topped the list of Leal’s keys to restaurant success. “I think a lot of people have gotten away from that over the years,” he concluded.

Karl Strauss’ new Isomerizer IPA added into their year-round lineup In a market that just can’t get enough new experimental IPAs to quench their thirst for flavor variety, Karl Strauss delivers another home run hit with their new single hop IPA. Isomerizer IPA, the company’s latest small-batch success story, has just been released as a year-round brew and added to their core lineup. Isomerizer is now available on draft and in cans at all Karl Strauss brewpubs, the company’s Tasting Room in Pacific Beach, and select stores and craft beer bars throughout California. Karl brewers were inspired by their love of the Mosaic hop and the success of their Mosaic Session IPA, which exploded in popularity during its commercial release in 2015, and decided to further their experimentation with the versatile hop. R&D brewmaster Paul Segura took on the project as a challenge, aiming for an IPA with a more pronounced hop profile and just enough body to supplement the vibrant aromas and flavors of the hop. The result is an outrageously flavorful, well-balanced IPA bursting with notes of grapefruit and tropical fruit with a subtle malt backbone and a dry, hoppy finish. “Mosaic is such a beautiful hop

— the best one I’ve seen come along in a while,” says Segura, “so we wanted to make an IPA that really showcased its full spectrum of flavors. We kept the malt profile subtle which allowed Mosaic to shine through the beer with its flavors of grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, blueberry, and all of that tropical goodness.” Isomerizer IPA is named after the chemical process that occurs when the alpha acids in hops are converted to iso-alpha acids, which provide the bitter flavor to the beer. It was one of the standout favorites at the company’s 29th Anniversary Changing of the Barrels event amongst a stacked lineup of special releases, small batch, and unique barrel-aged brews.

From ‘complete disaster’ to skincare entrepreneur – PB woman finds beauty in business BY LUCIA VITI | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Molly Beane is emblematic of beauty on myriad of levels. Sporting her natural – and affordable – skincare product line, From Molly With Love, the budding entrepreneur is a tour de force in the skincare industry. But not only is the Pacific Beach resident determined to embed her imprint in the art of skincare, she’s intent on changing the world, one woman at a time. Because Beane believes that all women are already beautiful, her skincare products are advertised as luxury items for “taking care of yourself ” while “feeling wonderful.” Noting that beauty industry giants play on a woman’s insecurities, Beane touts skincare as self-care, “a radically feminist act.” “Self-hatred is a multi-billion-dollar industry,” she said. “There is no shame in my beauty game.” From Molly With Love is about enjoying everyday luxury by choosing natural, healthy, affordable skincare products. Self-care isn’t selfish. It’s mandatory.” The former public relations professional began fiddling with natural skin care products years ago. Questioning the health, safety and expense of commercial products, she decided to create her own. “I was a skincare nerd even though I never had skincare issues,” she continued. “I simply enjoyed geeking out

on labels. Consumers have no idea what they’re putting on their bodies.” Believing that she could make a difference by creating something “that mattered,” she segued into skincare as an artisan. Through “trial and error,” the “one-woman show” worked like a “mad scientist on formulations.” Her skeleton beauty regimen began with “what I liked and what worked for me.” She extended her “shell product line” to friends and family who encouraged her with positive feedback. “I opened an Etsy shop and made

Biggie’s Burgers has the beef, and shakes, at the beach BY ALAN S. PLEAT | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Biggie’s Burgers has opened up its doors on Mission Boulevard in Pacific Beach. This location is Biggie’s Burgers first expansion from its original spot in San Clemente, which has been operating for 22 years. In San Clemente, Biggie’s is a staple amongst locals and visitors looking for a classic and hearty lunch after a morning surfing session at Trestles. The Pacific Beach Biggie’s is a convenient option for surfers and beachgoers looking for a tasty burger and milkshake to cool down from a long beach day. "Our motto from our original owner in San Clemente, Richard Brown, is that 'if we wouldn't serve our food to our family, we wouldn't serve it to our customers,'” said Marlin Guerra, general manager of Biggie’s Burgers in Pacific Beach. “We get our meat freshly ground every two days, we make our own patties, cut our own lettuce, all our veggies are fresh, and we pride ourselves on serving our food fresh everyday to our customers,” Guerra said. “We're trying to recreate that special burger that your grandma made fresh at home for you. We want to be that friendly neighborhood burger joint for the whole family." The eatery offers a standard American hamburger menu with a wide array of specialty burgers and varia-

In the midst of learning, tinkering and creating, the certified yogi and Reiki guru was plagued by a completely different backtrack. Despite the appearance of perfection, “my skin looked amazing, my career was on fire, I was marrying the man of my dreams and living blocks from the beach,” she was privately “a complete disaster.” Thinking that she had overcome a childhood punctuated with poverty, neglect and abuse, led to a realization that “I had been anesthetizing my feelings with alcohol.” A breakdown led to rehab. Rehabilitation led to rebuilding. And rebuilding was channeled into creativity. Her journey to heal emotionally and spiritually led her to “fall in love” with her hobby for natural skin-care products. READ MORE ONLINE AT sdnews.com

“I would just ask that MTS would work with the community and myself … to see if there’s any way, any viable alternative, that we can help accommodate this request, which would be a terrific boom for the PB community,” said District 2 Councilmember Lorie Zapf. Rob Schupp, MTS director of marketing and communications, said the PB request, not being an agenda item, was not discussed by the transit board other than “Councilwoman Zapf ’s supporting the issue and

chairwoman Georgette Gomez saying she would start collecting facts.” Noted Schupp: “It is the City that ultimately makes the call. MTS just cited the impacts it would have on transit service, not only to the beach communities, but how delays in PB have ripple effects, and impact riders throughout our service territory.” Schupp added, “When this issue first came up, MTS asked for traffic control at unsignalized intersections to help ensure that we’re not stuck in gridlock, and the elimination of some parking so our large buses could safely navigate narrow streets required for detours.”

Bucs’ baseball, volleyball and track in mid-season form BY DAVE THOMAS | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Track and field The boys and girls teams come into this week with perfect marks of 4-0. According to head coach Danny Perez, sophomore TK Berhe, nephew of marathon runner Meb Keflezighi, leads the squad in the 1600m and 3200m, being the fastest miler in more than eight years. Meantime, sophomore Alec Plotegher leads the team in the long jump, triple jump and is the fastest short sprinter on the team. Senior Blake Edmunds leads the longer sprints (400, 200, 4x100 and 4x400). On the girls’ side, CIF cross country state meet freshman qualifier Gina Queck leads the team in the 800, 1600, and 3200m. Senior Alyssa Hernandez has been tops in the 300m hurdles, long jump, and triple jump. Fellow senior Crystall Ollison is the fastest short sprinter in the 100, 200, and 4x100m. “The boys’ division is extremely competitive,” Perez noted. “We have wins versus Clairemont and Crawford by less than four points, respectively. “Our girls have won by a wider margin. Our league has many section leaders, so the city league is no pushover. The remaining three meets we have Coronado, Christian, and Madison will be a tough task but believe we will have a fighting chance to win.”

main, Aiden Young, Zay Pena, Jayden Correa and Dusty Schraeder. “We’ve lost a lot of close games,” Pugh commented. “The pitching has been good, but we’re not scoring a lot of runs. Losing Shane Severson (lefthanded pitcher) has hurt pitching depth and starting two freshmen in some games is a formula for some tough situations. We battle most games and at this point our goal is to try and make the playoffs.” As Pugh noted, in a tougher league this year, the end result has meant more losses. That said, Pugh feels it will make the program better in the long run. “I’ve had to rebuild the structure of the program and we are in year two of a three-year process,” Pugh added. “We have a good group of freshmen and better times ahead.”

Boys volleyball

The Bucs, under head coach Nikki Caufield, are back in action again this year after a strong playoff run last year and moving up from Division IV to Division III in just two years. They started the season with wins against Crawford and San Diego and then lost tight matches to Madison, Serra, Clairemont and Morse. "We have four new starters in our starting rotation and a couple of returning starters missed the first five weeks of the season, so we are just getting everyone back and ready to play,” Caufield remarked. “We are training a new setter this Baseball year to replace last year's first-team Mission Bay heads into the week all-league player, Jacob Cayatano, so with a record of 5-12 for head coach there are some pretty big shoes to fill Dennis Pugh. on the court.” According to Pugh, top players to date have included Parker St. Ger- READ MORE ONLINE AT sdnews.com

Mission Bay to play host to Jim Cerveny Invitational on April 21 BY DAVE THOMAS | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Given the opportunity to compete against some of the best track athletes in the greater San Diego area, Mission Bay track members will be in action Saturday, April 21 at the second annual Jim Cerveny Invitational. “After being named the head coach in 2015, it seemed like a good idea to create not only fundraising for our program but a way to honor the great legacy Mission Bay has,” Mission Bay track coach Danny Perez said. Cerveny was Mission Bay’s first state champion, winning the 880 in 1957 to a then national record, a leader in track and field in San Diego. In honoring Cerveny’s accomplishments, Mission Bay is set to

host 34 different schools this Saturday (there were 24 last year). Local notable teams are Patrick Henry, San Diego High, Lincoln, and Morse. Among the marquee events will be the Charles Jock 800m, Jarred Bray Invite shot put and the Kathy Devine shot put invite. All three are former state meet champions. “The benefit for our athletes is whether they are competing or helping, they get to experience an elite meet being hosted at their own school,” Perez stated. “We bring the community together by having local business such as Moving Shoes, Woodstock Pizza, and Liquid Foundation involved.” Field action starts at 8:30 a.m. and running events at 9 a.m. Tickets are $5 all day, with a full snack bar open too.

APRIL IS PREVENTION OF ANIMAL CRUELTY MONTH

Archie, the last dog rescued from South Korean meat farm, still needs a home BY LUCIA VITI | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Eight years ago, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) designated April as “Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” month. Despite working daily to end animal brutality, April is now publicly earmarked to celebrate the human-animal bond while raising awareness of the cruelty animals face on a global scale. The San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) continues to play their part, highlighting Archie, the last of the more than 100 dogs rescued from slaughter at a South Korean meat market farm. In 2016, the Humane Society International (HSI) transferred Mastiffs, Jindo’s, Siberian Husky mixes and Chihuahuas no older than 2, along with several sets of puppies, to San Francisco where they were picked up by SDHS and transported to San Diego for rehabilitation and rehoming. “The San Diego Humane Society’s involvement in rescuing the dogs from the cruelty of the Korean dog meat trade stands out as

one of the most important missions we’ve ever tackled,” said Gary Weitzman, SDHS’s president and CEO. “We were determined to give these dogs and puppies new lives to be loved rather than be dinner.” Emblematic of the “ultimate statement” of Weitzman’s commitment to helping vulnerable animals, “near and far,” the SDHS successfully re-homed every dog with the exception of Archie, a male Siberian-Husky mix.

As with every rescued animal, SDHS trainers and caregivers have lavished Archie with love, care, and positive reinforcement training, received by him with “great progress.” A new home, preferably with adults or a family with older children, will require continued dedicated patience for the threeand-a-half-year-old dog described as cautious. Archie’s puppyhood was riddled with abuse. Dogs destined for slaughter never stepped outside of a cage, never interacted with people and were often the recipients of repeated malice, perpetuating the abuser’s theory that violence against the dogs flavored the meat. Fearful of people, every rescued dog was described as extremely SEE ARCHIE, Page 12

Chief ’s “constant pets,” Archie knew he was safe. “Over time, Archie knew I wouldn’t hurt him,” continued Mackinnon. “I’d pet him a lot. The reassurance was slow and methodical. Archie adjusted to our environment and understood our routine – sleep, wake-up, walks, breakfast, play time, nap, dinner and even treats. And he loved to relax in the sun. As with all of the rescues, Archie just needed to learn how to act like a dog.” Mackinnon noted that because the rescues were caged their entire lives, they were confused when introduced to grass for the “first time in their lives.” When placed in kennels with blankets, toys and bowls with fresh water, “items of

care they never had before,” the dogs had no idea what they were and therefore had “no idea what to do with them.” “Learning to be dogs” was part of their rehabilitation process. “There’s a process between training a dog to be loved by humans as opposed to being feared by them,” continued Mackinnon. “Archie will never be the romping dog that most of us grew up with. He needs to be ready to be touched or he flinches because he doesn’t know what you’re trying to do. Archie needs a patient family willing to give him time to hang out on the perimeter and size things up before moving forward.” READ MORE ONLINE AT sdnews.com

docile. While some canines eagerly welcomed human affection, others like Archie, required more time to adjust to their new surroundings. Stephen MacKinnon, chief of Humane Law Enforcement for SDHS, fostered Archie for several months. “Archie’s docility is based on the fear of not knowing what will happen next,” he said. “Archie will cower if he perceives a threat, especially from a male figure. We assume his abusers were male.” According to Mackinnon, Archie was comfortable with Mrs. Chief and hyper alert around him. But with time, reassurance and

What are the City rules and regs for walking the dog? Q: What are the laws governing walking dogs along the coast? A: Dogs are not allowed on the beach and in park areas between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Nov. 1- March 31 and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from April 1 to Oct. 31. The area includes beaches, bays, parks, cliffs, sidewalks, boardwalks, piers and adjacent parking lots. This also includes having a dog in a crate, purse and a bike carrier/basket. (Service dogs are exempt from the law. Emotional-support dogs are not covered under ADA, so they are not exempt from the law.) • All dogs must be leashed at all times unless it is a dog park like Fiesta Island in Mission Bay or Dog Beach/Dusty Rhodes in Ocean Beach. • You must pick up after your dog. • The leash cannot be more than eight feet long. • The leash must be attached to a person.

Dog owners should take paws before beach walks Mission Bay is the most common area in San Diego where dog walkers receive citations BY DAVE SCHWAB | BEACH & BAY PRESS

Turns out, Mission Bay is the most common spot where dog owners receive tickets for walking the pooch in the park. Dogs are prohibited from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (see sidebar) and a lot of people learn that law the hard way. According to stats compiled by the City, from 2015 to 2017, of 553 citations handed out to dog walkers in San Diego, nearly half – 256 – were issued in Mission Bay Park, with its 24 shoreline miles and 27 parks. The nation’s largest man-made aquatic park, Mission Bay features an abundance of paths including a 19-mile, full-bay loop connecting several neighborhoods, perfect for long walks with your four-legged friend. Balboa Park was runner-up to Mission Bay with 145 dog-walking citations in two years. Ocean Beach was a distant third with 84. Fourth- and fifth-place went, respectively, to Kate Sessions Park, 42, and La Jolla Cove/Shores, 26. Citations were for numerous causes including dogs off-leash and walking in prohibited areas. Some Mission Bay Park areas allow dogs on-leash only. Others, like Fiesta Island, are leash-free. Some areas do not allow dogs at all. City guidelines for legal dogwalking may seem strict to some. Service animals aside, it’s illegal

to walk dogs during the day at all city beaches, which extends to all of Mission Bay, including all boardwalks, grassy parks and paved paths. The only two exceptions are Ocean Beach Dog Park and Fiesta Island, designated offleash areas. The dog-walking prohibition in most San Diego public parks and beaches is not new. It’s been in place for 30 years due to public complaints about dogs threatening safety. Prime time for people being out in the City’s beaches and parks is daytime. Hence, the diurnal dog-walking restriction. Of course, no one enjoys being ticketed for anything, dog walking included. The Beach & Bay Press solicited accounts from beachfront residents concerning how, where, and why they received canine-walking citations. “I had put my [mini schnauzer] in the front basket of my bicycle riding with my daughter,” said PB resident JD. “A ranger stopped me on foot and said I could not pass through with a dog, even in the basket. She was close to giving me a ticket, but gave me a warning. I’m mad. My daughter thinks we can’t go places with our dog in a bicycle basket.” Cori Meara bought a bike called a school bus to accommodate their old Basset Hound. “Last April, we were stopped by a park ranger who wrote us a ticket for

being on the boardwalk during non-dog hours. We told her our dog was technically not on the boardwalk, but inside a bike. She said it didn’t matter. The ticket was $280!” “I think the regulations around times you can walk your dog are crazy,” said Angela Rowe of PB Plaza. “Walking your dog by the beach is illegal until after 6 p.m. starting April 1. The city should encourage exercising. Instead, it penalizes dog owners.” From the “other” side, Devin, a trauma center employee, and PB father of two young girls, said, “Leash and dog laws exist to protect both the dog and the public.” Citing one example, Devin said: “It is the illegal off-leash use that makes the Kate Sessions’ hill unsafe for young children. I already know the owner doesn't mind breaking the law. How likely is [the dog] to bite? Knock over my daughter? Obey? Now add another five or 30-plus illegally off-leash dogs. It makes for a stressful, miserable time.” Devin added that PB has a lot of legal dog-walking/running spots such as Capehart and Fiesta Island (89 acres) where off-leash is legal. Karen and Eric in PB agreed. “The laws are posted and people just disregard them,” the couple emailed. “We [runners] have a child who was bitten by a dog,

and we intentionally go out to the parks, beaches and walkways when dogs are not supposed to be there. Every single time we go out people are disregarding the laws.” PB resident Steve Kovack says he sees more serious violations than dog walkers along the beach and bay – such as alcohol use, smoking, and littering – with no enforcement. “I was given a warning on a weekday afternoon for walking my dog at Paradise Point, with no one else in sight,” Kovack said. “Along with the warning, I was provided a copy of the Mission Bay Park rules and regulations, of which there are 19 mentioned. How many tickets are issued to dog owners versus citations for violating many of the other rules?” “Thankfully, I have not received a ticket for walking our wellbehaved service dog, however, I do agree with those who would like to see another separate area for dogs to play in Crown Point (instead of the elementary school),” said PB resident Melissa Pratchard. “I love the suggestion about using the dirt and grass area at the opening of the bay, off Crown Point Drive and Lamont Street, as a dog area,” Pratchard said. “Our dogs, just like our children, need places to play.”

Q: When, where, is it legal to walk pooches along the bayfront? A: Before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m. from Nov. 1 to March 31 and before 9 a.m. and after 6 p.m. April 1 to Oct. 31. Dogs are allowed anytime at designated dog parks including Fiesta Island, Dog Beach and Dusty Rhodes. Q: What are the most common infractions? What are the penalties for those infractions? A: Most common infractions include dogs off leash, dogs in the park during the restricted hours, and not picking up after dogs. Regarding penalties, these laws are considered “wobblers” and can be cited as either an infraction or a misdemeanor and include a notice to appear in court. The judge ultimately decides the amount of the fine, but fines typically start at about $250 per violation. Q: Who enforces dog-walking regulations? A: A number of agencies can enforce regulations, including San Diego Park Rangers, County Animal Control, San Diego Police Department and San Diego Lifeguards.

NFL referee legend, Ed Hochuli, puts Mission Beach condos in play Ed Hochuli, a retired NFL referee known for his muscular arms and lengthy penalty explanations, has put two condominiums in a Mission Beach waterfront complex on the market for a combined $5.1 million. The condos are being sold separately with the potential for a combined pur-

chase, according to listing details in Realtor.com. The properties are located at the Kingston Court complex, 3373 and 3375 Oceanfront Walk. The 1,750-square-foot upper unit is listed for $2.7 million and features wall-towall windows, an updated

kitchen, a dining area and a living room with a fireplace. It has two covered patios and panoramic ocean views. Sliding glass doors in the master suite open to one of two private patios. The condo has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The lower unit, listed for

$2.4 million, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and nearly 1,400 square feet of interior. It features ocean views from the kitchen and living room areas and the master bedroom. A groundlevel patio faces the beach and boardwalk. Traci Stevens, of San Diego Realty Consultants, is the listing agent for both properties. Hochuli, 67, had been officiating NFL games since 1990 before retiring in March. He was the longest-serving referee in the league and worked two Super Bowls during his career. He is also a partner at a Phoenix law firm. Per his practice of law, he was known for articulating the precise details that led to official calls after plays. He

“There was no foul on the play. It was not a hold. The defender was just overpowered."
