A WORD F R O M T H E P U B L IS H E R

Can you believe it? 2020 is here and that means the start of a brand-new decade. There’s no question that Oceanside’s seen more change in the last ten years than in the last 30. Things are moving quickly, and it’s not just Oceanside. The constant hum of the digital world keeps us on all our toes. It seems that almost everything we do now revolves around our phones, tablets, and computers. I feel like our lives are now tethered by technology, so please don’t

forget about “humanity”—the one where you go outside and enjoy a hike, sports, exercise, and maybe even a conversation that doesn’t include texting or sharing a selfie. Oceanside has so much to offer, all we have to do is look up from our device every now and again and we’ll be a little bit better off in the long run. Let’s try enjoying the moment, as opposed to curating it for the latest post. We all know that the new future cannot escape the smart phone, 6

SET IN STONE

but we can all try to find the balance between our curated personas and our real selves. This new decade is going to be amazing, so let’s not miss it because we’re too busy looking down at our phones. Go outside, speak to your friends in person more often, and most importantly—enjoy the moment.

GO GREEN THIS NEW YEAR

Are you looking to lessen your impact on our earth but aren’t sure how? Would you like to conserve water, protect our watershed, and incorporate zero waste into your daily routine? Choosing to go green this New Year is much easier than you think, especially with help from the Green Oceanside team. There’s an increasing desire in our community to live a more sustainable lifestyle and lessen the impact we have on our planet, but most people don’t know where to start. Whether you’re at home or on the go, living sustainably not only benefits your health, but also benefits our community as a whole. Use the following programs to help you take the steps towards a sustainable lifestyle and join the City’s Green Oceanside team to protect our planet for future generations to come. 18


WATER CONSERVATION The Water Conservation Program promotes water use efficiency in Oceanside and has numerous resources for residents to utilize. From water saving tips, information on how to fix leaks, and water saving videos, you can learn all about how to better manage your water use at home. Green Oceanside will be hosting FREE workshops throughout the year for those looking to transform their outdoor landscape, taught by local landscape and irrigation professionals. Another great water saving resource is Oceanside’s new online WaterSmart Program, where you can better manage water use, apply for available rebates, and so much more. Setting up an account is fast, easy, and free. With just a few simple steps, you can sign up for your own personal account profile using a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Visit GreenOceanside.org and visit the Water Conservation page for more information on this great resource.

WATERSHED PROTECTION Volunteering with Green Oceanside is a great start to having a green new year. The Watershed Protection Program has a goal of improving water quality in our local creeks, rivers, and the ocean. It encourages Oceanside residents to participate in restoration events taking place throughout the year. Currently, the city of Oceanside is undertaking a habitat restoration project on a portion of Garrison Creek in the Loma Alta watershed. The project includes 28 acres of invasive vegetation removal and native planting to improve native biodiversity and habitat for the local wildlife populations.

ZERO WASTE Green Oceanside promotes zero waste in our community. An easy goal for the new year is to join the city’s “Be Disposable-Free” campaign— incorporate reusable items into your daily life, and opt to say no to single-use disposable items. Doing so can eliminate plastic pollution from ending up in our landfills, or worse, finding their way into our oceans. By visiting GreenOceanside.org, you can also learn more about upcoming zero waste cooking workshops, used oil and oil filter exchange events, and more! To learn more about the city’s Environmental Programs, current events, and how to get involved with the Green Oceanside Campaign, please visit GreenOceanside.org, or download the Green Oceanside app by searching “Green Oceanside” in the Apple and Android app store.   19


Oceanside's Finest MARTY GOREN WORDS: AARON SCHMIDT  PHOTO: ZACH CORDNER

Marty Goren is a living legend. Known by many as “Hot Dog Marty,” he’s been a staple of the Oceanside community for the past twenty years. Last November at a chili-tasting event held at Heritage Park, Marty put on his wiener hat and served hot dogs from his cart one last time, as he’s officially retired now—at 86 years of age. Hot Dog Marty grew up in the 1930s and 40s in New York City on the gritty Lower East Side of Manhattan. He’d eventually go on to join the military after high school. “From 1954-56, I was a cook in the US Army,” said Goren. Marty served his country with pride in the Army, Air Force Reserves, and then worked as a civilian for the Navy for the next twenty years. After retiring from the military in 1983, Marty moved to New Jersey, St. Louis, and then eventually made his way to the West Coast—Seattle, Washington to be exact. “I was only able to take the rain in Seattle for one year,” joked Marty. “After Seattle, we then moved to Southern California, and that’s about the same time I started Dad’s Hot

Dogs—that was around 1985. My wife Vicki, our kids, and I then relocated to Oceanside in 1988.” By the mid-2000s, Marty had his Dad’s Hot Dog cart parked on the Strand for three years. His dogs were selling like hot cakes, as locals and tourists alike chomped at the bit to get their hands

"Over the years, I’ve brought joy to the faces of people and I’ve brought joy to their stomachs. Most of all, I brought joy to their pocket books" on one. The going rate for a hot dog and coke was two dollars. “It’s always been a buck for a hot dog and a buck for a soda,” said Marty. Dad’s Hot Dogs was one of the first vendors at Sunset Market when it launched downtown in 2007. Since then, Marty had been selling his famous Dad’s dogs with his delicious jalapeno spread or

imported German sauerkraut at high school sporting events, various community events, and local fundraisers. “I’ve done events for the WRC (Women’s Resource Center) and also for Heritage Park. Some of them I didn’t even charge people at all. It cost me, but I enjoyed doing it,” said Marty with a big toothy grin. These days, Marty and Vicki belong to a Senior Citizen organization and are very much involved as can be. “Vicki and I do a lot of things— every month we have a meeting, I donate sodas. We actually still work with the Women’s Resource Center. Over the years, I’ve brought joy to the faces of people and I’ve brought joy to their stomachs. Most of all, I brought joy to their pocket books,” smiled Marty. Goren’s larger-than-life personality and his infectious New York accent make him a genuine character in every sense of the word. His longstanding commitment and abiding service to our community over the years is what makes him one of Oceanside’s Finest. We love you, Marty!

Things You Didn’t Know about

OCEANSIDE in the1880s WORDS: KRISTI HAWTHORNE  PHOTOS COURTESY OF OCEANSIDE HISTORICAL SOCIETY

This is the first in a series of Oceanside’s history by the decade, starting in the 1880s when Andrew Jackson Myers settled in the San Luis Rey valley in 1879, it seemed his plan for establishing a seaside town had already begun. Soon after his arrival, he applied for a land grant and moved to occupy said land, which he planned for his town. Even before he was granted his official land patent, Myers began marketing his town, and newspapers in Southern California were making mention of Oceanside. On June 20, 1883, a patent was issued granting Myers the 160 acres that would become his new town of Oceanside.

Founder of Oceanside, Andrew Jackson Myers Old Schoolhouse

1.

The land to become Oceanside was surveyed in October of 1883 by Cave Couts, Jr., with early streets being named and lots and blocks laid out. J. Chauncey Hayes was given rights to sell lots in the new town, which Myers began promoting immediately. Myers built a bathhouse below the bluff near the present day Beach Community Center. It featured seven changing rooms for women and an equal number for men. Myers also started excursion trains from San Bernardino, Redlands, and Colton to bring interested investors and those who wanted to visit his soon-to-be resort city by the ocean’s side.

2.

Matthew Spencer, agent for the Russ Mill & Lumber Company of San Diego, opened a Lumber Company in 1885 at Third and Broadway (Pier View Way and Cleveland). This was a muchneeded enterprise vital to building a new town. By 1886, Oceanside had a population of 350 people and boasted of “nearly 60 houses.”

3.

By 1885, Oceanside had enough families with children that a school was needed. A temporary schoolhouse was opened near Second and Hill (Mission and Coast Highway). In August

of 1885, the school opened with nineteen children in attendance. As the town grew, so did the need for a permanent school building. In October of 1886, Matthew Spencer delivered lumber to Horne Street for a new schoolhouse. It was a two-story structure with a bell tower and was completed in 1887.

4.

Essential for any town was a newspaper. In 1884, Thomas Cary, a printer from San Francisco, came to Oceanside and began publishing the Oceanside Headlight newspaper. Frank Whaley moved his San Luis Rey Star newspaper to Oceanside in July of 1885 and renamed it the Oceanside Star, which was the predecessor to the Oceanside Blade.

5.

In 1887, a large brick building was erected at the northwest corner of Second and Hill (Mission and Coast Highway) to house the Bank of Oceanside. The bank was organized by Col. Daniel H. Horne and Charles Morrill, with E.S. Payne as the cashier. The bank building also housed the library, city offices, and a store. This ornate bank building was considered too old-fashioned by the mid 1920s and was replaced by a new “modern” building in 1924. 26

6.

Also built in 1887 was a grand hotel, the South Pacific, located on Third (Pier View Way) and Pacific Streets, near the present day pier. A.P. Hotaling of San Francisco was the owner who then leased out the hotel to a “proprietor.” Dr. E.A. Tuttle was one of the first managers of this hotel, which faced the railroad track—instead of the beach—to entice train passengers. A large and lavish garden was planted in the area surrounding the four-story hotel.

7.

A wharf company was formed in 1887. Col. Daniel Horne, who would become Oceanside’s first mayor, spoke in favor of the wharf: “I do not think there is anything that could be done to enhance the prosperity of this town so much as building a wharf at this place. We can build this wharf if we say we can build it, and pull together and unite our forces; and all hands interested within ten miles will be benefited. It will benefit every acre of land in this town, and for ten miles around.” Soundings were made at the end of Couts street (now Wisconsin), and the first pile was driven in May of 1888. The first pier was to be 1,505 feet in length at a cost of $35,000. It would be the first of six piers, which has become

an iconic landmark unique to Oceanside. The first wharf was intended for shipping purposes but soon became a simple fishing pier. It lasted just two years and was wiped out by a series of storms in 1890. Pilings of Oceanside’s first pier are still visible at times during low tide.

8.

San Diego’s Fire Chief paid a visit to Oceanside in order to help assemble a volunteer fire company. In 1888, the newly formed fire company elected officers, and in June of that year a fire bell was erected near the Russ Lumber Mill to sound the alarm in case of fire.

9.

In early 1888, a new Santa Fe train depot was built, replacing what was a simple wooden platform and loading dock. The depot was located on the 100 block of North Cleveland Street, where Second Street (Mission Avenue)

Train watering station

came to an end. It was the center of activity for decades, bringing tourists, settlers, and visiting relatives to Oceanside. The local hotels were in great competition for the people the trains brought through Oceanside. It was also a gathering spot for locals to catch up on news from abroad and get the latest bulletins from the telegraph wires. Oceanside’s depot was also crucial for shipping homegrown crops to Los Angeles and receiving much needed supplies and goods from across the country.

10.

In March of 1888, the South Oceanside Diamond newspaper reported that prominent businessmen were interested in incorporation: “We have sounded the public pulse and believe the time has come to incorporate the ‘Gateway of the county.’” Prominent businessmen were asked to weigh in on the issue, and E.A. Tuttle   27

responded: “I don’t think the population is hardly large enough, but at the same time, I am in favor of incorporating as it would put us in shape to do something. The money that now goes to San Diego would be kept here and needed improvements will be made.” Frank Obear declared: “Give me incorporation or give me death. It is the only thing that will give life to this town.” On June 25, 1888, residents cast their votes with Founder Andrew Jackson Myers being the first to vote. The official tally: 74 voted for incorporation and 53 against. On July 3, 1888, the San Diego County Supervisors declared Oceanside the third city in the County to be incorporated.

SAVE OUR SAND! THE SAVE OCEANSIDE SAND ORGANIZATION

WORDS: KATIE LALICATA  PHOTOS: ZACH CORDNER

There’s no sand on Oceanside’s beaches. Aside from the obvious, where sandy beaches sell the dreamy vision of a Southern Californian paradise—the lack of sand poses a handful of other problems to the Oceanside community. To understand this situation, let’s take it back to where it all began. Around the time of WWII, the Army Corps of Engineers built the Oceanside Harbor. This created a barrier between the Santa Margarita River and the city of Oceanside. As can be seen from an aerial photomap, this is a massive obstacle to natural sand distribution to the beaches south of the Harbor. More specifically, Oceanside is the first and direct recipient of the sand that’s dragged south from the river mouth in the long shore sand transport. These major rivers are historically the main source of sand on our beaches. Comparing the sand that lives on the Del Mar Beach and Camp Pendleton to what’s seen in Oceanside is a stark contrast from north to south of the Harbor. It’s the exact same coastline, but it’s separated and interrupted by an obstruction that has resulted in drastically different shorelines. So began the problem.

  29


“It’s empowering and inspiring to have community members and organizations like the Save Oceanside Sand project so devoted to improving our city with the greatest good for all in mind”

Oceanside currently has a non-economic, non-sustainable solution. As long as the Harbor remains, the beaches in Oceanside will never again have a natural sand flow. This disruption of flow of sand from the river mouth has, to a certain degree, created a coastal hazard zone here. As water levels in the ocean continue to rise, as tourism continues to provide an economic foot hold in this community, and as locals still desire sandy beach days with their families—there needs to be a focus on solutions. This is where the Save Oceanside Sand project comes into play. The members of the SOS organization have been vocal and active in bringing attention to this urgent issue. They’ve

been working tirelessly attending SANDAG meetings, contacting government officials, and are even planning to coordinate a “sand summit” here in Oceanside in the upcoming year. Although not affiliated with the SOS project, the City of Oceanside agrees this is one of their top concerns, as well. Council Member Ryan Keim told us the city is on a crusade of its own with a unanimous agreement to do something about the sand problem. The first step is with a proposal for a study to see what the best options are in terms of sand replenishment and retention. Outside of local, state, and national policies, the ardent members of the Save Oceanside Sand project feel passionate about bringing together 30

the community for the betterment of Oceanside. The Save Oceanside Sand organization is pioneered by a group of enthusiastic locals who have joined forces to raise awareness around this issue, and to force a good conversation that needs to be had. “Public outcry has made a big difference, and will continue to help keep this issue in the forefront of peoples minds,” remarked CoDirector of the organization Dirk Ackema. Save Oceanside Sand is a superb example of grass roots activism at its finest. Their mission is simple: Create sustainable, sandy Oceanside beaches. They host meetings, and are working with local governments up and down the coasts to find solutions, not just for Oceanside, but solutions that positively impact our neighboring towns to the south. Nick Ricci, also co-director of SOS, wants to convey the message that “There is hope that we can create a sustainable environment that’s going to preserve and protect the ocean and the beach that we live on.” Much research is still needed, as this is just the preliminary phases of a long-term project. But if resources come together as planned, they’re looking forward to hosting a sand conference here in Oceanside this spring to connect communities, scientists, and environmentalists to create more conversation and noise around the issues threatening the coastal cities. The Save Oceanside Sand project is exciting because it gives members of this community a voice. They host monthly meetings discussing this issue, their ideas around positive solutions, and how they plan to move forward with action. Their next meeting will be held in February. On their website is a wealth of information about their vision for sandy beaches in Oceanside, as well as information about their meetings and how to contact them. While the Save Oceanside Sand project is focused on bringing groins (jetty-like structures to retain sand) to the beach, the city of Oceanside


SOS Co-Directors Dirk Ackema and Nick Ricci.

is going to wait to see what the research indicates before they decide on what solution is best. Ryan Keim, an Oceanside City Counsel member who feels strongly connected to rejuvenating the beaches, shared this: “This is one of the most crucial issues our city is going to have to address in the next couple years. This issue has been one of the more positive things I’ve been involved in because it’s so universal. Our kids play soccer on the beaches, and there’re junior lifeguards. It’s so important because it’s interwoven into the fabric of Oceanside.” Keim’s not set on any one solution, but focused on the best solution. “It’s about figuring out a more economical, sustainable, environmentally friendly way to keep sand on the beaches,” he stated. As it’s the government’s job to create policies, it’s the people’s job to generate and create advocacy around important issues in the towns and states these governments represent. It’s empowering and inspiring to have community members and organizations like the Save Oceanside Sand project so devoted to improving our city with the greatest good for all in mind. Like Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” For more info, please visit sosoceanside.com   31

Historical model trains at Heritage Park WORDS: ELIZABETH SCHWARTZE  PHOTOS: ZACH CORDNER

THEOSIDER.COM


Heritage Park, located near the San Luis Rey Mission, houses a collection of Oceanside’s historic buildings, including the city’s first general store, a blacksmith shop & stable, The Portola Inn, the old city jail, Libby School, and the Blade newspaper. Stepping on to the grounds of Heritage Park is a throwback to a bygone era, and its historical presence beacons curiosity for the young and the old. It’s a must-see in Oceanside. Amongst the well kept, yet antiquated buildings of Heritage Park, another one of Oceanside’s treasures can be found. As of 2013, North County Model Railroad Society proudly calls Heritage Park home. The multi-room, and impressive model railroad system is the perfect addition to Heritage Park as most of the model railways are modeled after 1950s-era San Diego County rail line. The railways are researched for historical accuracy and attention to detail with towns on the rail line—the businesses and signage, exactly how it looked 70 years ago. It’s a fantastic opportunity to “visit” the iconic buildings of 1950s Oceanside, and “travel” down through the different towns, arriving at the Santa Fe Station in San Diego—traveling the rails with a bird’s eye view. North County Model Railroad Society (NCMRS) is a group of approximately 50 convivial train enthusiasts—men, women, and young adults who love the history, camaraderie, and creation of model trains and railroad systems. Rick Kiefer, long-time NCMRS member, explained that the fascination with trains begins at a

young age, and for some, that intrigue never fades. Many of the members collect model trains throughout their lifetime, and it’s a never-ending hobby. There’s always something to build, or different rail lines to replicate. Kiefer also stressed the importance that there’s something for every member of the club. To build the model railways, the club needs landscapers, artists, carpenters, computer programmers, and electricians. Many of the club members’ talents are constantly being used in the construction portion of the models. Understanding the connection and fascination kids have for trains, North County Model Railroad Society offers many hands-on experiences and opportunities for children. Operation Lifesavers is a program the club is proud to offer. It teaches children the importance of railroad safety, primarily at train crossings; this is important because Oceanside has many train crossings. Operation Lifesavers is also offered as part of their school tours that happen at the Heritage Park location. During the school tour, the basics of train operations, train safety, and model railroad construction are taught.   35

To engage children and visitors, there are also large green buttons that beckon to be pushed—and that’s okay! The green buttons are part of an interactive display for children. Each time a button is pushed, a part of the model will “come alive.” The club plans to incorporate many more interactive green buttons to engage children of all ages. Speaking of a bird’s eye view— since the models are built a few feet off the ground, there are steps so little ones can watch, too. North County Model Railroad Society also participates in Heritage Park’s Christmas programs, and offers birthday parties as well. With a leading-edge block control signal system and trains controlled from smart phones, North County Model Railroad Society is extremely proud of their computer operating systems. Approximately every six weeks, the members run their railway in a real-time operating session controlled by a printed timetable. “It’s a big jig-saw puzzle with about eight-to-ten model trains running at the same time. It’s a lot of fun and it gives us a purpose, to run real protocol from the railroad industry. It’s also fun for the new members—the first time they experience it,” explained NCMRS chairman John Burrow. Club members love the opportunity to share their passion with visitors. Their doors are open every Saturday from 10am to 3pm, free of charge. “We love visitors, we’re always finding ways to get them back, and everyone is welcome,” emphasized board president Harold Helland. Club

NCMRS is a great place to take the kids! Doors are open every Saturday from 10am to 3pm and it's always free!

membership is open to everyone, as well. Since it’s a continuous project, there are nominal monthly dues that the club uses to buy the necessary components and rolling stock needed to build and expand their model railway system.   37

SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOLS WORDS: PROMISE YEE

Howard LaGrange, Oceanside’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, is leading the charge to ensure children have Safe Routes to School. He’s overseeing a $565,000 Caltrans grant the city received towards the effort. LaGrange said about half of the grant is being spent on walking audits and traffic reviews to gauge conditions at peak drop-off and pick up times at 25 schools within the city. Results from the study will be used to develop a Safe Routes to Schools map that’ll be completed by May 2020, and then given to schools for distribution. LaGrange said the remaining grant money would fund “recommended projects to improve safety, traffic flow, and bike and walking promotion.” Early study results have found a need to refresh crosswalks, add bulb-outs, install

rapid flashing beacons at school crossings, improve schools’ drop-off and pick up traffic configurations, mark red curbs near crosswalks to improve drivers’ line of sight, and also to put in more crosswalks near schools. The city will pursue additional SANDAG and Caltrans grants to make needed changes. “Some lower cost improvements will be funded through the city,” said LaGrange. Another important step forward is providing additional training for school crossing guards. LaGrange clarified that controlling traffic is not their job. “Crossing guards are to assist children crossing safely,” said LaGrange. Vehicle traffic is the number one safety issue children face when riding their bikes to school. LaGrange advises parents that their children “be visible, wear a 38

properly fitted helmet, and if riding on the sidewalk, be aware that every driveway that crosses the sidewalk is a dangerous zone.” The city also holds regular bicycle traffic skills classes for adults, and elementary school bike rodeos. “Being a predictable, law abiding cyclist is important,” said LaGrange. The bike rodeos have skills stations to teach children important safety practices, and provide free bicycle helmets for children in need.

Named one of the best places to visit in Oceanside.


In March of 2017, Oceanside lost one of its beloved coastal residents to suicide.

Aaron Joseph Nunez, “Joe”, was in his mid 30’s and father to three children age 4 to 15. He surfed Cassidy Street Beach and strolled PCH on his cruiser. He was like “Norm” from Cheers at LTH and would hack it up at The Goat with South O. buddies. If you work in real estate, then Joe probably visited your office to pitch title insurance a few times. Devastated by the loss, his sister Andrea Albert and brother in law Dana created an annual charity golf and barbecue fundraiser at Goat Hill Park in March 2018. Affectionately called “Goat For Joe”, this casual family event is hosted by Dana’s San Marcos Rotary Club. Funds are raised to support suicide prevention and mental health awareness programs. $7,500 was presented in 2018 and $9,000 in 2019 to North County Health Services specifically to their Behavioral Health division. Dana Albert is now a member of the Philanthropy Committee at NCHS to help raise funds for health care needs in underserved communities. NCHS is a full service Federally Qualified Health Center that provides Primary Care services for all ages with departments that specialize in Pediatric, Family and Adult Medicine, Women’s Health, Dentistry, Chiropractic Care and Behavioral Health. NCHS is now under the direction of new CEO Barbara Kennedy (see photo). The Behavioral Health division mainly focuses on Mental Health and Substance Use/Abuse/Addiction services and is under the direction of Dr. Leon Altamirano. Approximately 5 years ago, NCHS changed the way the organization delivers healthcare. It now includes Behavioral Healthcare as part of a Whole-Person Approach to improving the health of the populations NCHS serves. It has expanded from 3 Behavioral Health Providers to a Department of more than 50 providers with specialty services focused on Psychiatry and Therapies for: Stress/Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Substance Use Disorders (alcohol, opiates, smoking, marijuana, methamphetamine, etc.), Eating Disorders, ADHD and more. The two main specialty clinics are located in Oceanside and San Marcos. Proceeds from “Goat For Joe” have been used to develop services to test children, and adults, for ADHD as well as for Autism Spectrum Disorders. NCHS has successfully started screenings for depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance, trauma history and more.

The 3rd Annual Goat For Joe will be held Saturday, March 21st 2020 at Goat Hill Park to once again benefit NCHS Behavioral Health. This year, the event will include info booths from local mental health and suicide prevention organizations during lunch thanks to coordination from Oceanside City Library. The presenting sponsor is Lawyers Title San Diego. Breakfast is provided by Beach Break Café and the family barbecue lunch will be catered by Miss Kim’s That Boy Good BBQ. T-Shirts and Caps provided by LinkSoul Oceanside. The golf tournament is only limited to 100 players and will have a 9:00 AM Shot Gun Start. Dana expects at least 200 people to attend the barbecue, silent auction, and opportunity drawings.

HOW TO MAKE CARBONARA WITH MANGIA E BEVI’S TORE TRUPIANO PHOTOS: ZACH CORDNER

Carbonara is a classic Italian pasta dish from Rome made with egg, hard cheese, guanciale, and black pepper. This dish was originally made for Italian miners when they went down in the mines.

INGREDIENTS • Salt • 1 egg • 1 quail egg • 3 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano, plus additional for serving • Coarsely ground black pepper • 2 ounces of slab guanciale, pancetta or bacon, sliced into pieces about a quarter-inch thick by one-third inch square • 2 ounces of dry or 5 ounces fresh spaghetti or bucatini

RENE COSBY WORDS: KATIE LALICATA  PHOTOS: ZACH CORDNER

Rene Cosby is a local artist recently garnering attention with her eye-catching, visually stimulating acrylic on canvas paintings she’s been pumping out. Her shy, humble demeanor makes her the unlikely-yet-deserving hero of a story, and her talent as a painter resoundingly speaks for itself. Much of her art features animals as the subject with intricate, detailed shapes and colors completing the backdrop of the work. What’s so intriguing about her art, however, is that these captivating “background” details are so meticulously and masterfully designed that the eye is often drawn to them with equal attention to the object in the foreground. Formal art studies or training are not part of Rene’s path. She’s a self-taught artist with very few influences from the art world to draw upon. Her paintings, as a result, have a unique voice and present an alluring representation of how Rene sees the world. Having dabbled in other art forms like photography, Rene has long understood and received the healing benefits of the creative process. With that being said, about two years ago she dove into painting due to the

massive relaxation and healing she feels while putting brush to canvas. It just so happens that she’s really skillful at this painting thing. In the last two years, she’s created exactly 100 pieces of art. She just finished her 100th piece, and has successfully sold over 90-percent of the art she’s painted. Something even extra magical about the paintings Rene is creating is that as a Reiki master, she puts healing energy into each and every one of her pieces before sending them off to their new homes. There’s both a depth of talent and love that can be seen and felt when admiring the art she creates. In addition to painting at home, Rene has also contributed to the community art scene here in Oceanside. The Oceanside Museum of Art proudly possesses and displays some of her artistry, as well. Last year they commissioned her to paint a piano that’s currently on display there. The piano is often played and enjoyed by those who go to visit the museum. Shying away from the limelight, Rene does not often display her work in shows. There are however, a plethora of options to get her beautiful 48

creations into your hands. If your home space or budget might not permit an original piece of art, 8 by 10 prints of her work are available. In addition, a collection of gift cards with her paintings on them are sold at a few locations locally or can be purchased through contacting her. If you’re an avid art connoisseur, or you just love sending

cards with beautiful art on them, Rene’s work is truly incredible and worthy of checking out! You can find Rene on Facebook at “Rene’s Art Menagerie” and on Instagram @Renesartmenagerie, or you can email her at renesartmenagerie@gmail.com   49

CABANA CONCEPTS WORDS: ALICIA STONE PHOTOS: PRISCILLA IEZZI

Cabana Concepts is a local licensed, bonded, and insured factory direct supplier, installer, and service provider of LaCantina Doors and windows. They specialize in high quality folding, multi-sliding, and swing door and window systems. They have an array of colors, sizes and configurations, and also sell motorized options. Cabana Concepts offers routine service and maintenance for every piece they install, as well as service for existing doors that have been installed by another company. They’re also able to uninstall and reinstall doors and windows for homeowners who are unhappy with their current sliding glass door situation. Sole owner Joe Schultz worked in the door installation industry for eight years before striking out on his own three years ago. His previous work experience of nine years in the service department for the Weseloh Auto Group inspired his goal to bring that same level of service to his customers. “When your car is in need of service, it can be upsetting, also when you’re unhappy with your home, it can bring that same feeling. My idea was to have a ‘turn key’ solution to remodeling either an existing glass door, or replacing a wall in order to open up your living space to the outside. Especially, here where we’re lucky enough to live in the best climate in the world,” said Joe. Cabana Concepts opened its office and showroom three years ago and is the top preferred installer in California for LaCantina Doors. They’ve been featured on design TV shows such as Property Brothers, Nate & Jeremiah by Design, and recently installed doors in actress Sophia Bush’s Los Angeles home. Joe has installed doors in homes and restaurants throughout Southern California and said that his business is comprised of about 50-percent contractors and fifty percent private homeowners. Joe’s approach is to offer an exclusive, boutique style and hands-on service, as opposed to purchasing from large contractor supply stores. “I’ve been fortunate enough to become friends with many of my clients and that reassures me I’m doing something right,” he added. Joe chose Oceanside because LaCantina doors are manufactured here, but when his business opened he decided to take up residency

It’s amazing, but it’s also not surprising how many people come here to vacation because there’s so much to do. I love walking my dog on the Strand, getting coffee at The Cup or Captain’s Grounds, and then grabbing a bite on an outdoor restaurant patio. It really is a beautiful and fun city and it’s exciting to witness all the growth happening right now.ˮ 50

SEW OSIDE

WORDS: ALICIA STONE  PHOTOS: PRISCILLA IEZZI

With consumers seeking alternative and eco-friendly manufacturers and online thrift stores all the rage, the trend of recycled/up-cycled clothing is here to stay. It’s the perfect time to offer Oceanside a place for children and families to learn how clothing is made and teach them the basics. Sew Oside is bringing the lost art of sewing to our community and having a lot of fun while they’re at it! Owner and teacher Amanda Gerard grew up in the Moreno Valley area and started to sew at age twelve after her mom showed her how to thread a sewing machine and then let her have it. She prides herself on learning from her mistakes and believes that sewing and finishing a project can give a child confidence while teaching them a valuable skill. Amanda has created a myriad of custom projects, such as ball gowns, swimsuits, costumes, and wedding dresses. She launched the boutique portion of her business Kylie’s Closet from her home eight years ago and her adorable “MiniBelle” dress has become her signature piece.

She’s catered to kids as young as six years old and allows her students to work at their own pace, while she teaches students how to choose, cut, and iron the fabric and also how to set up and work on the machines. “Every one starts out with a pillow and moves on from there. I have some people working on dresses, teddy bears, zippered pouches, wallets, and even large quilts,” she explained. In addition to the retail boutique, the space is available to rent for private events and also hosts workshops, Girl Scout groups, and birthday parties. Sew Oside is proud to be an approved vendor for Inspire Charter Schools, which allows homeschooled children the opportunity to add sewing to their curriculum. Sew Oside has many exciting events coming in the New Year such as “Sew & Slumber” parties for kids and adults, family movie nights, spring and summer day camps, and field trips to teach budgeting and learn about textures and fabrics. 52

Amanda and her family chose Oceanside as their home base six years ago after a long search for their perfect climate. They opened their family business in June of this year and she chose her current location in the Copperwood Center because of all the potential she sees in the area. “Growth in Oceanside is kind of bitter sweet. As a business owner, it’s exciting. As a resident who was drawn to Oceanside’s small town-laid back surfer feel, there’s a fear that feeling could slowly fade away. I hope that big businesses and our city consider the residents and maintain the community that keeps locals here while they chase the big dreams.”

MARY’S FAMILY RESTAURANT

WORDS: JAMEY STONE PHOTOS: ZACH CORDNER

In any town, there are certain places that stand the test of time and become a fixture of the neighborhood. Mary’s Family Restaurant is exactly that. Located right downtown on Coast highway, Mary’s has been serving up home cooked comfort food for well over twenty years. Their signage has been one of the classic Oceanside landmarks since my childhood—it has that classic diner feel. The big, bold sign out front and the sidewalk cutout of a chef with chalkboard specials listed for all to see take you back to a simpler time. It gives this place that “down home” feel that most new places shy away from. And that’s just the way owners Jose and Lupe Hernandez like it. Jose came to Oceanside from Mexico in the 1970s for farm work, but he ended up in the restaurant business. He started as a dishwasher at another eatery and worked his way up the ranks to chef, and eventually became the owner of Mary’s. Jose prides himself on keeping everything very close knit and family-oriented; most of his employees have been working there as long as he has. In fact, even the customers have been patrons for just as long. Just look at the personal coffee mugs adorning the cabinets as you walk in. Jose Jokes that Mary’s is like the 80s TV show Cheers, because it’s where everybody knows your name when you walk in.

And oh, the food! They’ve won multiple awards for their head-sized cinnamon rolls loaded with gooey icing. Their fried chicken and waffles are to die for and the burgers are top notch. Everything on the menu boasts large portions and the prices are fair, to say the least. Chef Ivan Salazar makes his own sauces and everything else from scratch weekly and it shows. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner you’re looking for— Mary’s has you covered. So next time you’re downtown, look for the Chef out front, and head in and see for yourself why Mary’s Family Restaurant is a favorite of so many longtime locals here in Oceanside. The next time you go in, I guarantee they’ll know your name, too.

FAIRWAYS KITCHEN & BAR WORDS: AARON SCHMIDT PHOTOS: ZACH CORDNER

Located at Arrowood Golf Course, Fairways Kitchen & Bar is a quaint little eatery that’s recently renovated their dining room space with a new chef, new menu items, and a whole new look and vibe. Arrowood Golf Course is an eighteenhole golf course, complete with a driving range and putting greens situated neatly on a hilltop off Village Drive. Fairways Kitchen & Bar is the “go to” spot to get a bite after a long day on the links or for a quick respite (beer) before you head out to meet your tee time. Originally from South Africa, new Fairways Director of Food & Beverage Clive Berkman has been in the restaurant business since 1986. He’s from a catering background and has worked for President Bush and some Hollywood celebrities and he’s even authored a cookbook storybook in 2009 called Empty Bottle Moments. “Its thesis is, ‘An empty bottle of wine has more of a story than a full bottle’ meaning that wine and food is really all about us coming into a relationship around the dining room table. I used stories from my life to illustrate that principle,” said Chef Berkman. “The reason that restaurants have such a high fatality rate is not necessarily because those people don’t know how to cook—anybody can cook a meal for one, two, or three people—it’s all about the process. You have to

have a defined environment.” Berkman joined the crew at Fairways about eighteen months ago and hasn’t looked back since. The menu at Fairways is incredible and boasts all new items that include burgers like the Fairways Wagyu Burger, Pastrami Arugula Flatbread, the Fairways Club sandwich, and their ever-popular Hole-In-One chicken tenders. Finish your meal off with their savory Chocolate Quandry and you’re in heaven. Friday Nights at Fairways happens every Friday and the menu is “farm-totable using traditional methods with modern American flavors that are familiar and delicious.” Patrons at Fairways are encouraged to order a variety from each course to share. There’re also special menu items for dietary needs, as Vegetarian, Vegan, and gluten free options are available. Popular beverages include the Apple Martini, Alaskan Amber Beer, The Works Bloody Mary, and the Tequila Sunrise. All are amazing and should be sampled as soon as possible. They’re also available for weddings and private events. A true hidden gem, their open-air environment coupled with the lush green views of the Arrowood Golf Course makes Fairways Kitchen & Bar a winner in my book every time. 56
