Eating Healthy Just Got Easier with

La Banana Fruits!



By Eva Redding

Eating wholesome foods on the go is possible

thanks to Sean and Laura Collins and their vision to create a business that offers a healthy alternative to standard fast food. With a wide variety of signature tortas, fruit salads, acai bowls, smoothies and many other fresh dishes and drinks, La Banana Fruits is fast becoming a local favorite spot. Sean and Laura started the business in 2013 out of their passion to share healthy creations with others. Getting up at 3:30 am every morning to prepare up to one hundred of their original fruit salads with Cremoso dressing, they were selling their food from the back of the truck loaded with coolers and ice blankets. They sold their salads at various places including Costco, hospitals, banks and car dealerships throughout San Diego. Additionally, they were busy with catering for weddings, parties, and soccer tournaments locally and later in Arizona.

After moving from Arizona back to San Diego, Sean and Laura initially worked for other companies in Vista and fell in love with the community. With a dream of restarting their business full time, Laura found an opportunity for a physical location, and La Banana Fruits arose to new heights. Interestingly, that place was a space inside a Chevron gas station on South Melrose Dr. in Vista. Since many people don’t expect to find delicious, healthy foods inside a gas station, their business has quickly become a unique gem. La Banana customers love the idea of coming in to gas up and by the time they are finished, their fresh to order food is conveniently ready to go. With high reviews from their customers, La Banana Fruits has been growing mostly by word of mouth. Starting a food company with a physical location in the middle of a pandemic was a risk, but not a deterrent for Sean and Laura. As Sean noted, “When is the right time to open up a business? I can choose to make excuses or I can take action.” Their boldness and persistence have paid off. As it turns out, starting a business during COVID-19 restrictions has been a blessing. It has given them a special opportunity to be a true family company. It has allowed them to bring their children, Lluvia and Sean, to work every day. As a result, while doing their schoolwork remotely, their kids are also learning an important lesson about busi-

" “When is the right time to open up a business? I can choose to make excuses or I can take action.”

ness and the value of money - learning far beyond a textbook. They have also acquired skills to make and sell their own fresh squeezed lemonade as well as display and promote their artwork right from the counter of La Banana. For the Collins family, starting a business during a pandemic has allowed them to be together, work together and grow together. “The community has been awesome,” Sean is happy to call Vista home for La Banana Fruits. Sean and Laura also enjoy supporting and connecting with other local small businesses and often participate in fundraising for various causes. Whether it is donating proceeds from

sales to a diabetic clinic or donating to school events and soccer tournaments, they have always found ways to give right back into the community. The Collins family’s persistence, dedication and hard work has taken them on a journey from humble beginnings to a physical location in the heart of Vista. They are proud to create a business with a positive impact and are looking forward to serving wholesome foods to many more happy customers. www.facebook.com/labananafruits VISTACHAMBER.ORG

Chair of the Board Ron Adams

It has been my honor to serve as Chairman of the Board for the Vista Chamber this past year. Working closely with our Board, Chamber team, and our member businesses as we navigated the pandemic has been experience I will always remember. After such a tough year, it was particularly rewarding to celebrate the achievements of our community at the Heroes of Vista Gala held virtually on March 20, 2021. For the past ten years, the Vista Chamber and Vista Education Foundation have partnered to celebrate Vista Heroes and this year it seemed even more fitting to celebrate our educators, first responders, civic leaders, and businesses. Our event committee did a fantastic job showcasing our heroes and local students who benefit from the funds we raise. The at-home gala boxes were a hit and gave the evening a special touch. In addition, it was an honor to recognize our longtime friend Nick Ljubic with the first ever Nick Ljubic Chamber Champion Award. If you have not yet had a chance to view the event, please search You Tube for Heroes of Vista 2021 and make sure to check out the award winners and highlights on page 8. Next up, we are excited to host a twist on our annual Strawberry Festival. We will host “A Berry Sweet Market & Virtual Run” on Sunday, June 20, from 9am to 5pm in downtown Vista. Due to COVID restrictions, the event will be smaller in scale this year but our Board realized the importance of this event to our community and wanted to bring something special to you all. We must celebrate strawberries and being VistaStrong! Bring your dad (it’s Father’s Day!) and shop and dine downtown – we’ll have kids activities, many of your favorite vendors, and of course, strawberries, thanks to Frazier Farms. All the event information, including safety protocols for can be found at www.vistastrawberryfest.com. Please check the website for updates as the event draws near. Lastly, I want to thank our wonderful Vista community for supporting businesses, particularly this past year. We are a community that shows up for each other, always. I am grateful for the opportunity to be the Chairman of the Board for the Vista Chamber. The experience has been incredibly rewarding and I encourage everyone to explore volunteerism as a way to enhance your community and yourself.



On April 20, 2021 the Vista Chamber of Commerce with the Vista Education Foundation held its 10th Annual Heroes of Vista Virtual Gala. This event honors our local heroes including teachers, small business owners, fire fighters, sheriff deputies, veterans, community leaders and more. More than 185 attendees joined us virtually to celebrate those that have made a positive impact in our city; and another 827 tuned in on YouTube. Thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Tri-City Medical Center.

Mayor's Musings Mayor Judy Ritter

Vista Paves Way for Growth Over the Next Five Years While many small and mid-sized cities around the United States struggle because their economies were built largely on one main sector, the City of Vista has diversified its business community by creating robust economic development strategies - from an award-winning brewery cluster to thriving industrial parks and innovative tech centers, to our vibrant, downtown. Even during this past year’s pandemic, Vista has attracted new companies and investments, while supporting the city’s existing businesses. In an effort to continue its urban economic revival, the City recently released its Vista Economic Development Strategy (VEDS), a strategic framework to guide the City’s economic development policies and programs over the next five years. The VEDS plan is designed to expand economic opportunities for Vista’s resident workforce; revitalize the commercial and industrial areas; and strengthen the City’s fiscal position. We will continue to nurture and support our existing businesses and industries and will also be on the watch for new opportunities to benefit our residents and businesses. Despite the economic headwinds caused by the pandemic, we believe Vista is well positioned for continued economic growth!

Lab & Design Studio for R&D Offers Real Solutions for Local Makers By Julie Smith Taylor Located in the heart of the Vista Business Park, Open Source Maker Labs (OSML) is a high tech digital & physical fabrication lab where members can learn, collaborate, innovate, design, and build almost anything. OSML provides a 3,000 sf. creative facility that’s ideal for individual entrepreneurs, start-ups, small-to-medium-sized makers and manufacturers. This fully equipped maker’s space features a 2,000 sf. laboratory, a conference room and a design studio where small teams can effectively collaborate. “It’s an economical solution for smaller companies that need to make faster and cheaper prototypes, or take advantage of our sophisticated equipment and software without having to invest in it themselves,” says OSML President, Dan Hendricks. “It’s been the core of our business since we established the company in 2013.” Hendricks is a former US Navy Captain specializing in nuclear engineering and cyber security. After retiring, he was ready for another challenge. He knew he always enjoyed helping people and starting new things. Establishing OSML was a great way to combine all of his interests into a new business with a focus on supporting local entrepreneurs and manufacturers. It’s also a family enterprise for Hendricks, whose wife Mary Alice is the VP and responsible for the accounting and managerial side of things. Their long-time family friend, Ariel Therrien, is a part-time Lab Manager. “We saw the need for offering our services to North County entrepreneurs as the only co-working space for R&D in the area,” says Hendricks. “We’re also close to Cal State San Marcos where they now offer electrical and software engineering programs. Students are able to take advantage of our facility as a virtual lab. It allows them to work on projects with local industry, which gives them real-world project experience for their resumes.” One can utilize the facility via month-to-month memberships, similar to a gym membership. Open Source Maker Labs provides all the space and equipment and then it’s a member’s responsibility to come in and use it. The company offers a range of membership levels and pricing that can be tailored for part-time, individual and corporate membership needs. Last year, when Covid-19 restrictions began, the company saw a decrease in the use of the labs, but membership stayed strong. “We took this time to strengthen



our IT, full-suite software capabilities to provide more online design and collaboration work via Zoom,” says Hendricks. The investment paid off. With the ability for small teams to work better virtually, not only have local businesses found it extremely helpful, but Hendricks was able to lead a team of his own at Cal State San Marcos with Business Administration and Engineering students. They successfully collaborated to win a national Hackathon competition in the area of cyber security in military vehicles sponsored by the Department of Defense. Out of 19 teams competing throughout the U.S., Hendricks’s team was one of the four winners to be awarded a seed funding grant to further develop their idea. “It was very exciting to be honored for our work,” says Hendricks. “It’s also exciting to me that OSML continues to be a catalyst between the growing local industry demand for engineers and the emerging workforce coming from Cal State San Marcos. It’s all part of our ongoing effort to create real solutions for local businesses by providing an affordable resource for R&D and more.” To learn more about Open Source Maker Labs, visit www.osml.us or call 760-998-1522.

Barrel and Stave Pour House


Downtown Vista’s Newest Brew Hub and Meeting Space

] By Barb Miltenberger



Barrel and Stave Pour House has quickly settled into the coveted piece of real estate known as 206 Main Street in downtown, historic Vista. With a location already established and thriving in Orange County, they had been scouting North County for expansion options, and snatched up this location with its incredible potential when it became available. They did some modifications and opened in February of 2021, being careful to save Clayton Parker’s famous and record-setting mural of downtown Vista that wraps around the structure. The mural was completed in 2005, and was recently restored to its original glory. Barrel and Stave further honored the history of the building by saving artwork on the original doors and panels by repurposing them in a decorative way on the interior of the tap room. Airy, indoor and outdoor seating is what you will find at Barrel and Stave. They also have an impressive meeting space which seats up to 100 people, and is one of the few venues in the city to be able to accommodate large groups. It is the perfect spot to host your celebratory party, business meeting or club gathering. Large-screen TVs stationed throughout the establishment and a full sound system are available for your get-together or presentation. While currently there is a wall between the meeting space and tap room, there are plans to open things up and employ a sliding barn door to separate the two

for privacy when needed. This other half of the building also serves as overflow seating on days with big crowds. This is truly a fully-functional meeting and gathering space, here for the community to use. Contact Todd Johnson at todd.johnson@barrelandstave.com to schedule your meeting or event. Ask him about the digital message board as well, perfect to advertise your business, wish someone a happy birthday, announce a milestone, etc. Let’s talk about Barrel and Stave’s offerings. While they do not make their own beer, they specialize in curating

and selling highly-rated, highly-desired and hard to find brews and other adult beverages, tap- room-style. They have an impressive and extensive network of contacts and work diligently to bring unique offerings to their customers. Many of the breweries they feature are small and do not sell through distributors, so Barrel and Stave makes runs around the state to bring them back to Vista for us to enjoy. Servers behind the bar are well trained and have tasted everything on tap in order to offer you first-hand knowledge about both the beers and the breweries that make them. Not sure what to order? Take advantage of their expertise and ask for a recommendation. They also have you covered with other beverage options. You will love the expansive cold case where you can shop hard-to-find beers, seltzers, ciders, kombucha and wines, all offered in cans and bottles for grabn-go convenience. Barrel and Stave brings something unique to Vista and is the perfect place for your gathering or to enjoy a cold brew as you people-watch in the downtown hub. You are invited to bring in food from the neighboring eateries (many of them will deliver to you), or make use of one of the food-delivery services such as DoorDash, Uber Eats or Postmates. Head downtown, give them a friendly welcome and check them out soon. They would love the opportunity

to help match you up with your perfect brew. You can find Barrel and Stave Pour House at 206 Main Street in downtown Vista. Check their website for more information and hours. www.barrelandstave.com. Follow along on social media for the latest Barrel and Stave news and happenings. See you there!

How to Schedule a Mammogram During Coronavirus Pandemic: What to Know Screening mammograms and COVID-19 vaccines are important Scheduling an annual screening mammogram remains the best way to detect any early signs of breast cancer. However, some people have had questions about scheduling a mammogram during the COVID-19 pandemic. How safe are health facilities? Can I postpone my mammogram? Can the COVID-19 vaccine affect my mammogram? Let’s start with what hasn’t changed. Breast cancer is still the second most common cancer among women in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Research shows it is easier to treat breast cancer when it is caught early. A screening mammogram is used to look for signs of breast cancer in women who don’t have any breast symptoms or problems. Health care facilities, like those at Scripps, are still safe places for mammograms, with enhanced precautions in place to protect patients, doctors, nurses and staff from potential exposure to the coronavirus. “If you are overdue for one, we encourage you to schedule your annual screening mammogram and work with your doctor if you have any questions,” says Rebecca Hsu, MD, a diagnostic radiologist at Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center and Scripps Clinic. “Regular mammograms are the best tests doctors have to find breast cancer early.”

COVID vaccine and mammograms If you are unable to schedule your screening mammogram before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, doctors recommend having your mammogram done a minimum of four weeks after receiving your second vaccine dose. This applies to two-dose vaccines by Moderna and Pfizer. The reason for this recommendation is that some women who receive these vaccines develop

swollen lymph nodes, usually under the arm on the same side of the body where the vaccine was injected. This is a normal immune reaction to the vaccine and generally subsides within four weeks. It’s not yet known if the recently approved Johnson & Johnson vaccine may have a similar effect. Scripps experts are raising awareness about timing considerations for scheduling screening mammograms and the COVID-19 vaccine. “Because enlarged lymph nodes can be seen on mammograms, patients due for their annual screening mammograms are encouraged to schedule their mammograms either before they have received the first dose of the vaccine or at least four weeks after they have received the second dose. This will reduce the chances of getting called back for additional imaging due to the enlarged lymph nodes,” Dr. Hsu says. Under normal circumstances, swollen lymph nodes are a sign of breast cancer and would raise concern appearing on a mammogram and would require further testing. If you get vaccinated first and do not want to miss a scheduled mammogram, make sure to tell your doctor about your vaccination to help get the most accurate mammogram reading.

Is it safe to delay a screening mammogram? For patients of average risk, postponing an annual screening mammogram a month or two during the pandemic should not affect the risk of breast cancer. “If you are significantly overdue for a mammogram, it is especially important to make and keep your mammogram appointment,” Dr. Hsu says. A delay is only recommended for screening mammograms, where the patient has no breast cancer symptoms. There should be no delay if the patient has symptoms.

Rebecca Hsu, MD Diagnostic Radiologist

A diagnostic mammogram is used to look at a woman’s breast if she has breast symptoms or if a change is seen on a screening mammogram. A diagnostic mammogram may include extra views of the breast that aren’t part of screening mammograms.

Those safety precautions include:

You should contact your doctor right away if you notice changes in your breasts or are experiencing unusual symptoms.

Be on the lookout for the warning signs of breast cancer. Consult with your doctor if you develop any of these symptoms: • Bloody or clear nipple discharge that occurs without squeezing the nipple

• Breast dimpling or puckering

• Swollen, red or warm breasts

• Changes in size or shape

• A hard knot or thickening in the underarm area or inside the breast

• A scaly, itchy rash or sore on the nipple

• Inversion (pulling inward) of the nipple or breast • Pain in one spot that doesn’t go away in two to three weeks

How safe are breast care locations? If you’re a Scripps patient, don’t hesitate to schedule a doctor’s visit to discuss a medical issue, change of health status or for a preventive visit, including a mammogram, due to concerns about COVID-19. “We have extensive safety procedures and protocols in place to protect patients, doctors, nurses, staff members and anyone else who enters a Scripps facility,” says Ghazala Sharieff, MD, MBA, Scripps chief medical officer, clinical excellence and experience.

• Curbside check-in through the MyScripps mobile app • Asking that patients visit their doctor without a companion, if possible • Screening for everyone entering a facility

• Requiring all physicians, staff members, patients and visitors to wear face masks or coverings • Rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols for all facilities and equipment

Steps you can take to protect yourself from COVID In addition to wearing a face covering, you can take other steps to reduce your risk when you go to your doctor’s office, including:

• Practice social distancing in waiting rooms.

• Practice proper hygiene by washing your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. • Use hand sanitizer before and after your visit. • Avoid touching communal surfaces in the office, such as doorknobs and elevator buttons, as much as possible. • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth. • Do not come in if you are feeling sick or have a fever or cough. While a mammogram takes only a short while to complete, it does involve close contact between a patient and medical professional. “We have safety measures in place for every step of your visit and we encourage you to ask questions about how we do breast imaging,” Dr. Hsu says.

Coming Soon!

Two exciting new projects in Vista's Opportunity Zone Paseo Artist Village is a pedestrian-friendly and

Terrace Lofts is a 42-unit loft-style living complex

transit-oriented mixed-use affordable development with 60 apartments of 1-, 2- and 3-bedrooms. The apartments will be available to local Vista residents, artists, and veterans earning 30-59% of the area median income. Reflecting the City of Vista’s vision for an Arts and Culture District and consistent with the City’s strong artist tradition, Paseo Artist Village will be a gateway to this arts neighborhood and a catalyst for vibrant new development along the South Santa Fe corridor. The new community includes 2,100 square feet of retail space, energizing the corner of Guajome Street and South Santa Fe Avenue. Community HousingWorks is committed to creating sustainable communities, and the GreenPoint Rated development will include a resident art gallery and studio, computer room, community room, secure parking structure, leasing office, play areas and a large central courtyard adjacent to the gallery.

designed to anchor Vista’s Art and Culture District. Tideline Partners started construction on Terrace Lofts in downtown Vista’s “Arts and Culture District” this past September. Lev Gershman, Founder and Managing Partner of Tideline Partners says “Terrace Lofts is our modern interpretation of Vista’s culture. It’s an homage to its past and investment in its future.” Vista’s leadership and community members created a comprehensive Downtown Community Plan to revitalize the downtown and cultivate a cultural heart for the community. According to Gershman, “there is long-term value in the infrastructure, irreplaceable history and charm of the downtown. We are excited to be part of Vista’s story and contribute to its growth for many years to come.”

“Merchants of Love & Joy” By Eva Redding

Phil Fischman’s love and fascination for beads, stones and crystals have been a part of his journey since he was a young boy. At the age of fifteen, his first visit to a bead store in Seaside Heights, New Jersey had a profound influence on his life. With his knowledge expanded in culture, history and travel, the visit left him deeply inspired. He, too, envisioned himself one day owning a bead store in a small town just a few blocks from the beach. That very dream came true decades later when Phil and his wife, Valeri, were presented with an unexpected opportunity to purchase a bead shop that was going out of business in Encinitas. Risking everything they owned, they embarked on a new, exciting adventure. Twenty-four years later, their business, Beads, Crystals and More is still spreading positive vibes and energy throughout the community and around the world! Over time, their business has become one of the biggest and most unique stores of their kind. They are delighted to offer an extensive collection of items from the smallest of beads and finely crafted jewelry to the rarest of gemstones from every corner of the world. Selecting their merchandise one by one with utmost care and love, they have become what Phil refers to as “Merchants of Love and Joy” for kids of all ages. Beads are one of humanity’s oldest art forms, dating back to 100,000 BC. Today people still turn to beads, stones and crystals for their energy, beauty and healing powers. As Phil said, he never goes out without his stones. “Stones are nature. When I have crystals in my pocket, it’s like having the beach, the woods and nature with me wherever I go. It’s my battery pack.” In the height of the 2020 pandemic, their lease in Encinitas was expiring, and the Fischmans were ready to find a new home for their business. Soon, they found a promising space in a building located in downtown Vista. Before making a decision, Phil and Valeri turned to the Friends of Vista Facebook page seeking feedback from other Vistans to find out whether they would receive love and support for their bead & crystal store in the Vista community. Within a couple of hours, the responses poured in with an overwhelming Yes! With a warm welcome from the community, Phil and Valeri chose Vista as the next home for their business. Settled into their new and bigger space, the Fischmans & their staff have been welcoming back their customers while creating a unique ambience for downtown Vista. Their new classroom will offer courses on beading, knotting, history of beads, and crystal healing, just to name a few. For those customers that have a desire to dive deeper into the healing and revitalizing power of gemstones, their new therapy room offers crystals and BioMats specially crafted for natural healing. As Phil explained, “Stones channel energy. I hear the vibrations and energy that stones emit and pick them up like radio waves.” Additionally, with his deep love for tribal



and antique artifacts, Phil is proud of his magnificent collection of museum style items. Thanks to these artifacts, he has been able to create special multicultural and international connections transforming many visitors into friends. Beads, Crystals and More is a beautiful new addition to the ever-vibrant downtown Vista. Like a true gem, their light and passion shine through everything they do. They are excited to continue spreading this unique energy and love throughout our community and beyond. Come visit us at: 350 E.

Vista native Jennifer Dineen and her husband Fraser Cosh founded Bleu Oak Charcuterie in August of 2019, as a side business. They became inspired after discovering how much they enjoyed putting charcuterie boards together for family gatherings. Fraser’s culinary experience combined with Jennifer’s artistic streak made them the perfect team, working side-by-side from their Vista home where they are fully licensed and insured to run their operation. By June of 2020, in the midst of a national pandemic, Jennifer found herself out of her full-time career position. With more free time on her hands, she was able to take over and commit 100% of her time to this burgeoning business, thanks to the great reception from North County consumers. Since then, Jennifer has “never looked back.” Creating food art, being her own boss and meeting so many wonderful people from the community have been valued job perks. Bleu Oak provides a spectrum of delectably fresh and artisanal charcuterie options at a range of price points. Signature staples include assorted cheeses, crackers, salami, fresh fruit, berries and nuts. As the size of the order increases, so do the appetizing components that make it up. All ingredients are fresh and of the highest quality. No matter what your order, you can be assured it will not only be tasty, but aesthetically

pleasing. Jennifer takes great pride in the artistry of her presentation. They offer four different sized boxes and many different types of boards that include breakfast, brunch, bagel, fruit, veggie, and dessert as well as their standard boards. Bleu Oak also offers tablescapes for larger events. Look for themed holiday options and keep them in mind for your catering needs. Check out their subscription service that offers the joy of weekly or bi-weekly Grazing Boxes delivered to your door at reduced pricing. Delivery is always complimentary with every order within a 5-mile radius of their Vista address. They will deliver to other parts of the county for a fee.

grateful for the community’s “super amazing” response to supporting small business. Bleu Oak thrived this last year and can only hope to continue to grow at a steady rate going forward. Conveniently, the business is open seven days a week. To place an order, visit their website at bleuoakcharcuterie.com where you will find an order form.

Making It Happen for Students By Robert Crowell, M.Ed., Career Pathways Coordinator Innovation Department

Superintendent's Corner Matt Doyle, Ed.D.

Vista Unified is proud to inspire the next generation of makers. From kindergarteners who code to middle school scholars designing and producing innovative customer solutions, students in VUSD are learning the skills and abilities to become our future builders, designers, and creators.

you teach the proper technique to check blood pressure virtually? How do you troubleshoot a faulty automotive O2 sensor on Zoom? I am pleased to report that our students and teachers not only adapted to the challenges of COVID, but also thrived.

Nowhere is this more evident than in our Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses. Career Technical Education in Vista has its roots in vocational education and the Regional Occupational Program (ROP). However, modern CTE is far different from the “shop” classes of old. Today, Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides learners with the knowledge, technical expertise, and soft skills necessary to succeed in college and career. In fact, many students in Vista earn college credit while completing our CTE courses. Our diverse Career and Technical Education offerings range from graphic design and photography to computer science and engineering to culinary and automotive technology.

In January, our photography students at Vista High won a number of honorable mentions and the Gold and Silver Keys at the Scholastic Arts & Writing Awards. A month later, our agriculture students competed in the San Diego Section Cooperative Marketing/Ag Business contest and the FFA Knowledge contest. Both teams won 1st place and had high individual rankings. Will Salley, our photography teacher at Mission Vista High School, was named the staff member of the year by the San Diego County School Board Association. Just this month our Automotive Technology class won the national Airgas High School Welding Education Initiative Award. The list goes on…

Career and Technical Education by its nature is hands on. While COVID presented a challenge for all educators, it was particularly difficult for our CTE staff. How do

While we are proud of the accomplishments of our students and teachers, we are energized to make our programs even better. This year the Vista School Board approved three new CTE Courses: Commercial and Residential Construction; Hospitality Management; and Welding and Materials Joining. These new courses will lead to careers in high-wage, high-demand sectors in our area. We are working with stakeholders from local colleges, business, workforce development, parents, teachers, and representatives from special populations to identify and build new Career and Technical Education pathways. In addition, we are in the design phase of a state of the art dedicated CTE facility at one of our high schools (more to come on this exciting news in a future edition of The Vista Magazine). Tomorrow’s makers are in school today. We owe it to them to provide the experiences and instruction that will empower them to find their own strengths, interests, and values, and translate these into a meaningful and productive life. In Vista Unified, we are making that happen one student at a time.



Over 137,180,000 Pounds in Carbon Emissions Now Saved Annually with Products in Use!



Solatube International Celebrates 30 Years of Wonder Making the world a brighter, happier, healthier place, one installation at a time Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of tubular daylighting devices (TDDs), is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. From an ancient temple in Egypt to the iciest places in the Arctic Circle to storm shelters across the United States, there are no limits to Solatube shining light on what is important to us. The company invented energy-efficient TDDs (also known as tubular skylights), which harvest daylight at the rooftop, transfer it down a highly reflective tube and distribute it evenly into an interior space through a diffuser at the ceiling – on both sunny and cloudy days – with virtually no maintenance. From residential to commercial, each Solatube installation has helped to conserve resources and protect the environment for a better future.

“By conservative estimates, we have sold enough Solatube TDDs to offset 137,180,000 pounds in carbon emissions annually," said Solatube International President Robert E. Westfall, Jr. "That equates to taking 11,430 cars off the road for a full year!” The first Solatube product was sold in 1991 and today more than 2 million people have improved their homes with Solatube TDDs, and millions more have enjoyed the benefits at department stores, schools, hotels, hospitals, grocery stores, offices and athletic facilities. Well-known Fortune 500 brands have enhanced their customers’ experiences while reducing their corporate energy costs by incorporating Solatube products into their stores, offices and facilities.

“From Australia to the United States to Europe and beyond, our employees and partners all around the world are at the core of Solatube’s success,” added Westfall. “Their devotion and commitment have propelled us forward and their creative ideas and designs will continue to amaze us for years to come.” For Solatube, 30 years of innovation and thought leadership has evolved into cutting-edge daylighting products that will continue to deliver energy-efficient solutions that inspire and shine pure, natural light on residential and commercial spaces across the world. For more information about the company and its related products, visit www.solatube.com

Solatube International, Inc., widely recognized as the daylighting industry innovator, has earned worldwide acclaim for its unrivaled ability to transform interior spaces with natural light. Based in California, the company is the leading manufacturer and marketer of tubular daylighting devices (TDDs) for all types of residential and commercial applications, and residential energyefficient home ventilation systems. Solatube continues to innovate with groundbreaking products that increase energy efficiency and light output and were among the first innovations to receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label by The Solar Impulse Foundation, recognizing all the effort and innovative developments it has made to become a recognized energy-efficient solution.
