Vista Chamber President & CEO Rachel Beld

Happy Fall Everyone! This is my favorite time of year. I enjoy fall foliage, slightly cooler days and maybe even the occasional sweater when the weather allows. In my house, this time of year is filled with activities and back to school functions. This year will look a little different but is thankfully much more “normal” than last fall. I am happy to share that the Vista Chamber is working to bring back many of our in-person activities and events. Returning this fall, the Vista Chamber will launch our 8th annual Rising Star program which honors local high school seniors who are true rising stars in their school, community, and at home. We are proud to have honored more than 400 students and given nearly $70,000 in scholarships over the past seven years. If you are interested in supporting this program, please reach out to for more information. Our mixers and networking activities are ramping up and we have many fun ways to engage with other Chamber Members. Please join us! Our Business Mixers are held the second Wednesday of the month. Our November mixer will be our our annual Business Expo at the Vista Civic Center. This year, we will add a hiring fair and other resources for businesses, job seekers and the Vista community. Please also save the date for the Vista Christmas Parade which will take place December 4. Check out our events calendar for more information! I am also excited to announce the launch of Velocity, the Vista Chamber Podcast, hosted by yours truly, featuring Vista’s movers, shakers, and change makers. Vista is home to many wonderful people doing amazing things. I can’t wait for you to hear their stories! Find it on Spotify and Apple Podcast as well as our YouTube Channel. Velocity launches on September 1, 2021. A few nights ago I happened upon a rerun of the television show Friends. Watching for a bit, I started thinking about friends and how they impact our lives. I believe that everyone needs real friends; the ones who support you and care enough about you to push you to be better and to try harder. These are the type of friendships I’ve found among my Chamber team and with our many wonderful members. I invite you to join us and we welcome your membership inquiry. You can never have too many good friends!




Feeding Vista Since 2013 By Barb Miltenberger

When Mike Levine was a young boy growing up in Miami, he and his friends would save their allowances and hop on their bikes several times a week, heading to their favorite sub shop to spend their hard-earned cash. Considering his life-long obsession, it’s not surprising that he opened his own sandwich shop, the first one in Escondido in 2007. He then went on to open Hungry Bear Deli in Vista in 2013. His mom Mia was instrumental in helping him get things up and running in the early days. Her temporary visit to help out has turned into a permanent move, the two working together side-by-side after all these years. Mike is grateful. “I’m living the dream. When you love what you do, it isn’t work,” says Mike. The name Hungry Bear is a nod to both the state of California which he loves, and Mike admits that he can be a bit of a hungry bear himself! What sets Hungry Bear apart from the other sandwich shops you might ask? Customer service is a priority at Hungry Bear Deli. As Mike says, “good customer service is free.” Ingredients are of the utmost importance and have to be fresh and locally sourced if possible. Mike selects only the finest produce, meats, breads and condiments to serve at his establishment and is not willing to cut corners to save money. He wants to give you the product that he himself would choose to eat. Their amazing rolls are from a local baker and are delivered fresh every morning. Everything is washed, hand-cut, sliced and



trimmed in-house daily for you. They do not own a freezer or a microwave, and the grill is the star of the show at Hungry Bear. Local is very important to Mike. He wants to be an integral part of his community, and he greatly relies on the support of his neighbors in North County. Hungry Bear has a diverse lineup of sandwiches. They might be best known for their Ultimate Italian Subs, Philly Steak sandwiches, Tuna Melts, Reubens and the only Cheeseburger Sub in San Diego County. They can also make any sandwich into a salad. Everything on the menu is fully customizable. You can get any sandwich or salad, exactly how you want it. Speaking of salads, the options are unbelievable. They have a chef, solid white albacore tuna, chicken salad, egg salad, antipasto, grilled chicken, Caesar, honey mustard chicken, buffalo chicken, fajita chicken, BBQ chicken, cobb, chicken cordon bleu, garden, Greek or create your own salads! The last year and a half have come with many challenges for Hungry Bear and Mike. Prior to the COVID-19 epidemic striking, his customers primarily came from the surrounding business parks and most of his business hit between the hours of 11:30 and 1:30PM on weekdays. When many workers began telecommuting in March of 2020, people living in surrounding neighborhoods became the shop’s main source of income. Now with employees returning to the office once again, Mike and Mia enjoy serving both the old faithful customers as well as the new ones they have gained over the last 16 months. 2020 did bring about a positive change and that is that Hungry Bear has created tools to establish a better online presence and you can now conveniently place your orders over the web or though their app. They are ramping up a whole new POS system, to make things easier and more efficient for the customer. Please connect with them on social media- both on Facebook and Instagram and make it a point to stop by Hungry Bear soon. You can find them at 2205 S. Melrose Dr. #103 in Vista. VISTACHAMBER.ORG

Chair of the Board Adam Brooks

As a native of Vista, I could not be more proud to Chair the Vista Chamber of Commerce and contribute to the Chamber’s vital work supporting our community and the businesses that make our city an ideal a place to live, work, and play.

Years ago, when I launched my own business, Alchemy Print Co., the Vista Chamber of Commerce played an essential role in helping me to network with other business owners and leaders, to increase my company’s visibility, to reach and increase my company’s clientele, and to expand the services that we offer our customers and clients. From firsthand experience, I know how crucial a role the Chamber plays on the frontline in supporting Vista’s businesses and in the region working collaboratively to support the pillars of our community. The Vista Chamber of Commerce has been a staple in our city for over 95 years and has played an active role in transforming Vista from a quiet retirement destination and commuter town to a vibrant city rich in culture and opportunity. From our bustling Downtown and our thriving Industrial Park to our Wave Waterpark and our renowned Moonlight Amphitheater, our city has exhibited impressive growth and innovation. In recent months, the challenges associated with the Covid-19 pandemic have only heightened the need for the Chamber’s vital work. Since March of 2020 when Covid-19 was declared a global pandemic, the business environment in Vista, the larger region, and nation has been exceptionally volatile. In addition to the serious individual health and public safety threats posed by the pandemic, businesses have been forced to deal with a myriad of problems including uncertainty in supply chains, ever-changing government regulations, and huge fluctuations in both what and how our residents and businesses purchase products and services. More than ever, the Chamber is meeting its mission to serve as a unifying organization, helping our members and community to adapt to new regulations impacting their lives and businesses, and providing resources that address the special problems that have arisen during this difficult period. Like countless other organizations, the Chamber has had to make some difficult decisions in the wake of Covid-19. In 2020, the Vista Chamber was forced to cancel the Christmas Parade and the pinnacle event in our community, the Vista Strawberry Festival. We also established a new home at The Film Hub, since working remotely was often mandated in accordance with state regulations. Through this turbulent period, the Chamber and their incredible staff and CEO have nevertheless succeeded in accomplishing some incredible things. The Chamber’s Staff devoted countless hours learning about and sharing important information and resources with our members and community. The Chamber pub-

lished more than 50 resource guides with up-to- date information on new legislation, state and county guidelines, permit requirements, grant and loan assistance, and education/training opportunities. The Chamber supported the needs of our members by pushing for legislation that would provide resources for businesses and by opposing regulations and closures, when appropriate, that would hurt our members and the business community at large. Above and beyond these efforts, our very own Mr. Vista/ Community and Member Engagement Director, Kent Leithold, posted over 100 videos on social media promoting our members. Over the last year the Vista Chamber has also worked hard serving the needs of our community by providing information on how to access community resources such as quality childcare and other needed services as well as essential products including food, household items, and healthcare supplies. With the help of partner organizations such as the Oceanside Chamber and San Diego North EDC, we were able to pilot a program that allowed us to purchase over $25,000 in food from local restaurants to support families in need. As we all know, 2020 was a life-changing time for us and for our businesses. Although we are not quite out of the covid woods in 2021, I am optimistic that our community and Chamber will both survive and emerge stronger than ever. This spring, we took a risk and planned to host the return of the Strawberry Festival, knowing that we might be forced to shut down at the last minute. The Festival was a success! We are moving forward now with plans for the 2021 Christmas Parade and will continue to be a strong advocate for our members, the City of Vista, and our valued partners in our community. I want to thank our incredible staff, our CEO, and our Board of Directors for their help in allowing us to carry out our vision of being a valued partner to the business community and a strong catalyst for business growth. The Chamber has gone above and beyond the call of duty, establishing new roots and pivoting in ways that helped where help was most needed. The Chamber is a vital community resource and a valued stakeholder in the City of Vista, and I can’t wait to see what great things we can accomplish this year!

Mayor's Musings Mayor Judy Ritter

Vista is the place to be! Visitors are coming from all over to shop, dine and discover our downtown. It is bustling with energy, and residents and day-trippers alike, are taking notice. The downtown vibrancy has also attracted more than a few business ventures and I’m looking forward to welcoming all of the new businesses opening or soon to be opening. Let’s continue shopping local, because this is a great way our community can leverage our collective buying power to keep our neighbors employed in these tough times. We have all seen how Vista grows stronger when we’re pulling together. Looking ahead, as our city transitions from response to recovery, we are focused on bringing back jobs and creating new opportunities, so that our community is stronger, more resilient and more dynamic than before. The well-being of Vista’s economic health is vital and I remain dedicated to doing all we can to build upon our economic health for our business community. The outlook for our city’s future is looking good and I will work to keep it that way.

Grafted Cellars (GC) is a reimagined Vista urban winery and tasting room enjoying a new concept in 2021. Formerly known as 2Plank Vineyards, the winery has gone through a merging and rebirthing process, complete with new ownership, a new name, a fresh look, and evolved winemaking and branding concepts. 2Plank had built a solid customer base with their unique wines over the last ten years, and what former owners Jason and Tina created is being honored and built upon. Mele Agrella began working behind the counter at 2Plank two years ago after she decided it was time to reinvent herself after raising her children. She followed her love of wine and winemaking and started out as a tasting room host and progressed to assistant winemaker, all the while studying to learn more about the craft. When the opportunity came available to purchase the winery, she and her husband Ray snatched up the chance to pour themselves into this new adventure. Knowing of both her love of wine and commitment to the business, the former owners found in Mele and Ray the perfect people to pass the baton to and encouraged them to rename and rebrand the winery based



on their own personal story. The name Grafted Cellars is a way to convey that while building on 2Plank’s foundation, this is now a family owned and operated business with new growth. The Agrella family members are all lending their own particular talents and expertise to the operation. Overseer of operations Ray and head winemaker Mele lead the charge. Daughter Mikayla studied to obtain multiple sommelier and winemaking certifications, and serves as assistant winemaker as well as brand manager. Her husband Christian studied viticulture and serves as cellar master and vineyard manager and has really been a jack of all trades around the tasting room. The Agrella’s daughter Allie is a designer and has created the beautiful new logo and wine bottle labels, and assists in custom projects. You can also catch her serving in the tasting room. The youngest of the girls, CC has recently graduated from UC Berkeley and both serves in the tasting room and assists in cellar operations. The family retained former employee Chris, a bottling and sangria-making aficionado. He is someone who has definitely become a valued part of their winemaking family.

Consider what GC has to offer. Their space is available for your upcoming event. They can host your group up front in the tasting room or in the barrel room in the back. If you are a local with your own vineyard and need assistance with custom crushes, bottling, etc., they offer consulting and various processing services. Wine club memberships are available. Since taking over the winery, memberships have increased 25%, so as you can see, the excitement is growing. Base memberships come with no fees, just a twice a year commitment of 4 bottles per pickup. Privileges come with four free tastings per month, special event invites and a 20% discount on purchases. Come in for a tasting and please know that you are welcome to bring in your own food to enjoy with your wine. Littles and dogs are also welcome. You can find Grafted Cellars at 2379 La Mirada Drive in Vista. Please check website for hours as they are subject to change. Connect with them on Facebook and Instagram and join the Grafted Cellars family.

Tri City Medical Center Celebrating 60 years of advanced healthcare

In the 1950s, North County was a rural area lacking advanced healthcare services. Visionary community and business leaders from Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista formed Tri-City Healthcare District to improve healthcare access.



On July 16, 1961, Tri-City Hospital, as it was called then, opened its doors with 87 patient beds and care provided by 42 physicians. The hospital was at the literal heart of the coastal North County community with its main hospital campus located where the cities of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista meet. As the community continued to grow and change, Tri-City Hospital

provided family health services, labor and delivery support and breakthrough medical innovations that ensured residents could get the care they needed close to home. Now, 60 years from the time Tri-City opened its doors, they are a full-service acute care hospital with over 500 physicians practicing in over 60 specialties. They are vital to the well-being of the North County community and serve as a healthcare safety net for many. Tri-City Medical Center

remains committed to its mission to advance the health and wellness of the community it serves. Tri-City Medical Center prides itself on continually advancing healthcare with innovative treatments and technologies. Their Cardiovascular health institute sets the gold standard for heart and stroke care receiving five major recognitions by the American Heart Association in key areas of heart and stroke treatment. In addition to outstanding heart and stroke care, Tri-City’s Orthopedics and Spine leads in advanced technology for spine surgery. One accomplishment toward advancing robotic surgery technology was their addition of the Mazor X Robotic Guided Surgery System. The Continual growth of technology and an exceptional surgical staff led to the recognition of Tri-City Medical Center being named Top 100 Best Hospitals for Spine Surgery by Healthgrades.

through outreach initiatives and provides financial and in-kind support for organizations best positioned to “move the needle” on community health issues and address social determinants of health. This Commitment is an opportunity for the medical center and its staff to actively support and lead community improvement programs. In 2021, it celebrates 60 years of faithfully providing quality and patient-focused healthcare services to the coastal North County region. Tri-City Medical

Center is a 386-bed full-service, general acute care hospital whose mission is to advance the health and wellness of the community it serves. In pursuit of that mission, Tri-City Medical Center has become a clinical care, economic and philanthropic powerhouse that has dramatically elevated the quality of life for those who call North County home while tackling some of our communities’ most pressing social needs. For more information, visit

In addition to exceptional care in the hospital, Tri-City Medical Center serves to advance the health and wellness of the North County community through their COASTAL (Community Outreach and Service Through Active Leadership). The COASTAL Commitment is a wide-ranging, award-winning outreach initiative with nearly 60 partner organizations serving the three cities. Through the COASTAL Commitment, Tri-City is actively engaged in the community VISTACHAMBER.ORG


Vista Soccer Club is Set to Kick Off this Fall



By Julie Smith Taylor

September marks the beginning of both recreational and competitive soccer programs in Vista. The time can’t come soon enough for the more than 1,000 kids ranging in age from 4 to 18-years-old who have committed to the 2021 season.

clubs. Vista Storm teams are two-time state champions and have earned a winning reputation at various tournaments in the league. “During Covid, our club’s leadership team used that time for planning and brainstorming creative ways for kids to work out, condition, and practice,” says Prado. “We offered virtual clinics and had coaches regularly Zoom with their team members to stay connected. Kids really needed the interaction and we found that many were experiencing feelings of isolation and depression,” he says. “As soon as we received the green light from the City back in the spring, we started practicing again, following all the safety protocols required. The kids were elated, but it’s going to be even more exciting to finally compete again in September.” Prado explains that the Vista Soccer Club, which is a 501-3c non-profit, relies on a variety of fundraisers, sponsorships and donations to keep the program healthy throughout the year. “The state grant we received during Covid was instrumental in helping us get through the pandemic,” he says.

The Vista Soccer Club and its eightmember volunteer board of directors has ensured the program’s long-term success since 1982. “We are extremely passionate about soccer and enjoy seeing kids develop their skills and really learn to love the game,” says Club President Hector Prado, who also holds various leadership titles in the community. Prado is not only a Head Coach for Vista Storm B2004, the competitive players’ soccer program for the City, he is also the Athletic Director for the Vista Boys & Girls Club, the Head Varsity Boys & Girls Soccer teams at Vista High, and the Assistant Coach for Women’s Soccer at Mira Costa College. According to Prado, pre-season weekly practice for the 8-10-week rec program will begin soon with games held on Saturdays. Practices and games are held at various community parks around Vista and Oceanside. Each year, volunteer coaches divide up approximately 600-800 kids into teams based on skill levels and ages that compete against each other. Vista Storm teams on the other hand, which are made up of more than 300 kids ages 6 to 18, have a more rigorous schedule. They not only have to go through tryouts, but practice year-round at least twice a week. They also compete on most Saturdays and participate in both local and regional tournaments as part of the SoCal League of soccer

“I also want to say thank you to all of the volunteers who have done everything possible to help keep Vista Storm SC functioning in this pandemic,” Prado says. “A huge thank you goes out to our competitive coaches whom during the pandemic continued to make a difference in our soccer club and in our community. Without our coaches, we wouldn’t have survived. Thanks to them we are where we are now.” If you would like to learn more about the Vista Soccer Club, Vista Storm or to become a donor or sponsor, please visit And, if your son or daughter would still like to try out for one of the Vista Storm teams, it’s not too late. Private tryouts can be arranged with a coach for consideration.

My Doctor Is Not In, Can I See an NP or a PA? Nurse practitioners and physician assistants can both treat you

Your cough isn’t getting any better after a week. Your throat is aching now. But when you try to make an appointment, your primary care doctor is not available. You’re asked if you’d like to see someone sooner. A nurse practitioner (NP) or physician assistant (PA) can see you in the morning. Not sure what to do? Or the difference between physician assistants and nurse practitioners? There are differences in their training and requirements. But both are licensed health care providers who can treat patients. And as their ranks grow, they are helping to increase access to health care for millions of Americans. “Nurse practitioners and physician assistants are highly qualified medical professionals who can provide the same general care services as physicians,” says Carol Coloma, NP, a family nurse practitioner at Scripps HealthExpress in San Marcos. In contrast to a nurse or medical assistant, who can take your weight and blood pressure and prepare you to see the doctor, a NP and PA can examine and treat you. Both hold advanced education degrees and extensive medical training.

Nurse practitioners and physician assistants in primary care The number of NPs and PAs has steadily risen since the 1960s when programs for these medical professions began largely in response to a nationwide shortage of primary care physicians. Today, there are more than 325,000 licensed NPs, and

about 140,000 certified PAs, practicing in the United States in a variety of health care settings. At Scripps, NPs and PAs staff more than a dozen Scripps HealthExpress walk-in clinics. These convenient clinics — located at Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal Medical Center sites across San Diego County — provide same-day care for minor illnesses and injuries. Primary care teams made up of primary care physicians, NPs and PAs are also common at Scripps primary and specialty care offices.

Nurse practitioner’s role and scope of practice Both PAs and NPs must have completed specific educational requirements and training programs in order to be able to treat patients. NPs and PAs provide the same general care services as physicians, including: • Conducting physical exams • Diagnosing and treating common, routine and acute illnesses • Ordering and interpreting lab tests and X-rays • Prescribing medication

What’s the difference between an NP and a PA? Although their roles are similar, NPs and PAs have some differences in background and training. NP programs are based on the nursing model and have a strong population focus. All applicants must be registered nurses (RNs) before they can complete

the graduate-level education and clinical training needed to earn an NP degree. NP licensing is done at the state level, generally by the board of nursing for the state in which the NP will practice. Certification is sometimes required to obtain a license. Certification is granted by national organizations in specialty areas of nursing practice.

Understanding the NP’s role In addition to providing general care, NPs generally play a greater role in patient education and counseling than PAs. They focus on illness prevention and staying well. Most NPs specialize in primary care areas, such as family medicine, gerontology, women’s health, pediatrics or acute care. A handful of states require NPs to practice in collaboration with a physician, including California, or under a physician’s direct supervision. Many states allow NPs to practice without any physician involvement.

PA programs are based on the medical model and are more disease-centered. In addition to classroom and laboratory instruction, PAs complete clinical rotations in areas such as primary care, surgery, pediatrics and emergency medicine. PAs practice in medicine in all settings, including primary, emergency and surgical subspecialties. The designation of PA-C, or physician assistant-certified, means the PA has been certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. Like NPs, many PAs pursue additional education to focus in a specific area. Most states, including California, require PAs to have an agreement with a specific physician in order to practice.

PA vs. NP So how do you know whether to see the doctor or a PA or NP?

Understanding the PA’s role

“When you are faced with the choice of seeing an NP or PA right away or waiting for a physician, it’s generally better to get in and be seen,” Coloma says.

Physician assistant programs are master's level programs. Students must complete at least two years of college coursework in basic and behavioral sciences before applying to a PA program. Many PA programs also require prior health care experience with hands-on patient care.

For coughs, earaches, rashes and other routine ailments, it’s fine to see an NP or PA. “Both work under the supervision of a physician and will discuss your care with him or her in case your problem turns out to be something more serious,” Coloma says.

Most students have a bachelor’s degree and about three years of health care experience before entering a PA program, according to the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Coloma adds, “The PA or NP will make sure your doctor is aware of your condition and proper actions are taken to provide the care you need.” VISTACHAMBER.ORG


By Julie Smith Taylor

On May 1st, the City of Vista officially rolled out a comprehensive food and organics recycling program, starting with single family residents in accordance with a CA state law (SB1383) to get organics out of landfills. Not only do food items and other organics take up 25-35 percent of what’s thrown away each week, but they produce methane gas, one of the most potent greenhouse gases that affect the climate and air quality. The law states that by January, 2022, all cities and counties in CA must implement the program.

Powered By Natural Gas From Food Waste!

Vista is not only ahead of the game with growing residential compliance, but also working closely with restaurants, commercial businesses like grocery stores and nursing homes, and multi-family housing units to get everyone on board by the end of the year. Consultants are working with these entities to identify the best ways to implement the program and also lower their disposal costs.

Our stateof-the-art plant in Escondido.

All of this is being implemented and achieved through the diligent work of EDCO, a full-service waste and recycling company that works with Vista and most of the cities in North County to include San Marcos, Escondido, Poway, Encinitas and Solana Beach. EDCO has also earned a reputation as a great place to work because of its family-like environment based on mutual respect and fairness. More than 140 employees have been with the company 20 plus years and 12 of those more than 40! The company actually has several generations of family members that work there, which says a lot about EDCO’s positive work environment. “We are also one of the industry’s leaders in promoting recycling alternatives and do not own landfills,” says Jim Ambroso, EDCO’s General Manager. “Recycling has been a key focus of our company since the late 80s when the state began promoting the recycling of bottles, cans and newspapers at the curb. It took the better part of 10 years for the public to adopt that and become good recyclers”, he says. “Now we continue with education and better technologies to keep the programs viable economically.” According to Ambroso, food recycling is the next frontier. “EDCO began researching and developing new technologies as far back as 2003 by partnering with a company in Europe where it’s already been tried and tested,” he says. “We picked the best of the best to help us create our system. We have known for years that we needed viable solutions, technology and infrastructure in place to help our customers successfully separate food and organics out the waste stream.” EDCO now has a state-of-the-art plant in Escondido where food and organics are put into an oxygen-free environment inside two huge tanks where anaerobic digestion takes place—similar to composting. Microbes break down the materials and create methane gas that is captured, cleaned and used to power EDCO’s trucks—a cycle that takes just two weeks to complete from start to



finish! Each tank is designed to process 93K tons of organic material per year, which would have otherwise gone into a landfill. “With the renewable natural gas we produce from food waste, EDCO’s near zero trucks can now operate with a carbon neutral or possibly even carbon negative footprint and we have plans to build two more tanks at the plant,” explains Ambroso. Another valuable biproduct of organic recycling that is produced at the plant is digestate. It is an organic rich material that can be applied as a soil amendment to farmers’ fields, like fertilizer.

“We are also one

of the industry’s leaders in promoting recycling alternatives and do not own landfills...

Ambroso knows that true success of this program requires high-tech solutions, infrastructure and education. “We have to educate people while in the kitchen,” he says. “Therefore, EDCO is offering a free kitchen caddy to help separate food waste along with instructional materials on how to properly recycle.” In addition, EDCO supports the state’s initiatives that larger generators of food More than waste must work with cities and counties to create an edible 140 emfood recovery program or food sharing network. “If put into ployees the right hands, those food items can be consumed rather than disposed,” says Ambroso. “These are very exciting times.” have been

with the company 20 plus years!

Vista School Facility Construction Is Expanding

Superintendent's Corner Matt Doyle, Ed.D.

Coming off a great start to the Measure LL Facility Bond construction, our team at Vista Unified is picking up speed on bond project construction activity. We just completed the Vista High School Sports Complex, a $6,000,000 project that will provide college-level facilities for student athletes in softball, tennis, field hockey, soccer, track and field, and more. This year, we will see a dramatic increase in the pace of construction through the district. We will be breaking ground on the Vista High School new classroom facilities on September 15, 2021. This project is set to invest over $50,000,000 in replacing all of the aging relocatable classrooms with brand new state-of-the-art science and general education classrooms on the front and back side of the campus. These two new buildings will transform the look and feel of the campus and energize the learning experience for students. We have already started the Beaumont Elementary School project that will replace all of the relocatable classrooms with modern learning spaces. We are also planning to build a new multipurpose room. When complete, Beaumont Elementary will look and feel like a new school. We expect to do the same for Bobier Elementary School by creating a new set of buildings and removing all of the portable classrooms. We will also be investing over $12,000,000 in the design of a stand-alone Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center at Rancho Buena Vista High School. This new CTE Center was identified by Vista residents to be one of the main areas of focus for facility improvement so that students have a direct pathway to expanding career sectors in the local and global economy. Please visit our Measure LL website to follow our progress and watch your tax dollars at work. VISTACHAMBER.ORG


Expert Marketing with a Humble Heart By Eva Redding

When it comes to marketing in the world of food, beverage, and hospitality, Bill Hornung of Humble Pie Communications is a true industry expert. Bill’s prior corporate work experience along with his solid marketing and project management skills gave him the right tools to launch his own marketing communications company in 2001. He has always enjoyed working with clients in the hospitality sector. As he explained, “It’s a small community of nice people that know each other, and it is very relationship driven.” While searching for a suitable name for his company, Bill’s wife came up with one that would not only represent his expertise in the food industry, but also reflect on his humbleness; thus, a recipe for a fitting name was created—Humble Pie Communications was an instant hit. Bill’s vast experience in website development, content marketing, video-based training, and podcasts are just some of the examples of work that have landed him projects with the most notable names in the food business such as General Mills, Foster Farms, and Chicken of the Sea. Mostly involved in business-to-business marketing, he teaches clients not only how to reach and effectively communicate with their customers but also how to provide training and value in everything they do. As Bill said, “The best marketing is done through training.” There is a great need to constructively and quickly convey how a particular product will make the busy business owner’s job more efficient.

The best marketing is done through training.



Even though food service companies are Humble Pie Communications’ niche market, during the recent years, Bill has worked closely with the City of Vista on their projects to help strengthen the local community. As a result, and campaigns were developed to support Vista-based businesses, which was especially critical during the pandemic months. As Bill said, “The City of Vista is very supportive of business.” Since most of his clients have been outside of California, he has wholeheartedly welcomed the opportunity to work with fellow Vista business owners. It has allowed

him to assist local companies with social media, content writing, and videos to showcase the personal side of their business. Humble Pie Communications understands the value of bringing out the story behind a business, which gives customers a unique perspective and establishes a personal connection. Being a proud Vista resident as well as working with the City has given him a greater insight into its diverse business landscape. As Bill said, “Vista has been a great experience. It is right in the center of it all.”


The company continued to thrive even during the pandemic lockdown. In addition to helping clients innovate, adapt, and implement new procedures with the changing times, Humble Pie Communications also organized the popular and fun “mobile” treasure hunt, the Vista GooseChase, in which players zipped around town snapping selfies at different business locations and competed for prizes. Despite his busy work schedule, Bill still finds time to serve on a non-profit board of the Harry Chapin Foundation, which supports arts in education as well as innovative agricultural and environmental programs. Bill’s passion in assisting companies with fine-tuning their marketing communications message to stay engaged with their audience and his hands-on approach have made a positive difference in the local community and beyond. He encourages businesses to take advantage of—free advertising tool for all Vista-based merchants. Additionally, companies can request free “Vista Is Open” window clings and “Love Vista” stickers. Businesses can also send him a note at to be notified of any upcoming campaigns via email.

The new two-story building’s ornate facade featured colorful mosaic tile and wrought iron railings. Tall archways provided architectural décor along both sides of the main entrance. A curiosity for area residents, and a welcome addition, was the community’s first elevator First National Bank had already officially opened on February 18, a block to the west in the Pechstein building, while business owners, land developers and the local citizenry excitedly awaited completion of the new facility. After the bank charter was granted and the bank name approved, Vista’s first financial institution opened with a capital stock of $25,000. The bank would occupy the elegant double-door front center area of the new structure. Other tenants included 13 business and legal office suites, the Vista Post Office, the Churchill & Cassou Hardware Store and Schancks Supply Store. The all-day, all-evening joint Grand Opening of First National Bank and the new Hart Building on September 14, 1928, brought crowds of dignitaries from all over North San Diego County. Among the local citizenry were business owners, avocado and citrus growers, and longtime citizens of a community that had burgeoned in the two years since an ample supply of irrigation water arrived. Among local dignitaries was Edwin G. Hart, whose Vista Development Associates had financed the $40,000 cost of

construction. In 1925, successful Los Angeles business man Hart heard about a place called Vista, where perfect soil, weather and location would soon be enhanced by an adequate water supply. Curious, he visited the area and saw the vast potential for citrus and avocado groves as well as field crops, exotic fruits and even flowers. He bought Vista Land Company, which included the popular new Vista Inn and 2,200 acres, much of which had been part of historic Rancho Buena Vista. He then formed Vista Development Associates, divided the acreage into avocado ranches and business lots, and plotted out much of what was to be downtown Vista. Hart had hoped his imposing new building would be called the Hart Building. But most of the foot traffic went into the bank, and the common reference became “the bank building.” In 1941, after Hart’s tragic death in an auto accident, First National Bank was able to buy the building from Vista Development Associates and thereby officially make it the bank building. The facade has been modified several times over the decades, and Union Bank occupied the space for some years. The building even stood empty for a time before it was taken over by tenants who have thrived in a variety of businesses with new names. But if you have been in Vista for a very long time, or you hang out at the Vista Historical Society, it will always be “the bank building.”
