Headlines & Happenings

Escondido DUI / Drivers License Checkpoint Scheduled for TODAY, October 24th
The Escondido Police Department Traffic Bureau will be conducting a DUI/Driver's License Checkpoint on Friday, October 24, 2014, at an undisclosed location.
The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough.
In California, this deadly crime led to 774 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver.  Nationally, the latest data shows nearly 10,000 were killed by an impaired driving. "Last year in Escondido, there were 99 victims injured in these tragic crashes, with two of those being fatalities", according to Lt. Murphy.
Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment.  Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.
Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems.  A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent).  Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DUI checkpoints.
DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.
Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Jaguar Marching Band to Perform Again in the Disney California Adventure Christmas Parade
Congratulations to the VCHS Jaguar Marching Band for once again being selected to march in the Disney California Adventure Christmas Parade!  
Disneyland hosted their annual "Community Art's Showcase" competition in which schools from all over Southern California were invited to send in a live unedited audition video.  Based on this year's video submission, the Jaguar Marching Band was awarded a free trip to Disney California Adventure.
While many schools are invited to perform at the Disneyland and California Adventure theme parks throughout the year, they have to pay full price per student for the opportunity to perform. The Jaguar Marching Band, however, will receive free admission along with the opportunity to perform as a result of their outstanding video submission.  
The Jaguar Marching Band will be showcasing their talents in the Disney California Adventure Christmas Parade on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. 


Local College Student Diagnosed with Meningococcal Disease


HHSA has already notified anyone who was in close contact with the individual that they should receive antibiotics to prevent any possible infection. There were no close contacts reported at the college as the student had attended only one class in the past three weeks. The individual was treated at a local hospital and is improving.

There is no known connection to the recent meningococcal case that resulted in the death of a San Diego State University student.

"The risk to individuals who have not had close contact with the infected individual is very low," said Dean Sidelinger, M.D., M.S.Ed., of the County's Public Health Services. "Meningococcal disease is spread through close contact with the person infected, but others should be aware of the symptoms so that they may seek care if they develop these symptoms."

Individuals who experience symptoms should seek medical care promptly. Symptoms may include fever, intense headache, lethargy, stiff neck, and a rash that does not blanch under pressure. Anyone with potential exposure who develops any of these symptoms should immediately contact a healthcare provider or emergency room for evaluation of possible meningococcal disease.

The bacteria can be spread through close contact, such as sharing drinking glasses, eating utensils, cigarettes, or water bottles. It can also be spread by kissing, smoking and living in close quarters. The time between exposure to the disease and the onset of symptoms can be between two to 10 days. Individuals who had close contact with the case should receive antibiotics to prevent any possible infection. Preventive antibiotics are not recommended for people who were not in close contact with the case, but they should be aware of possible symptoms and make sure they have received the recommended vaccination against the disease.

A vaccine is available to prevent certain strains of meningococcal disease and is routinely recommended for children and adolescents 11 to 18 years of age. Families are encouraged to make sure their pre-teen and adolescent children are up-to-date on all recommended vaccines, including meningococcal vaccine. To find out more information about vaccine-preventable diseases, please visit

There have been seven previous cases of meningococcal disease reported locally in 2014. Last year, there were 16 cases. Since 2005, an average of 11 cases have been reported each year in San Diego County.

 Valley Center Man Charged With Practicing Medicine Without License


UPDATE 10/20/14: Robert Oldham Young, 61 was in court Monday, October 20th for a preliminary hearing for practicing medicine without a license. His hearing in the Vista courthouse is expected to last throughout the week.

Twelve victims, six of which died, are named in the criminal complaint, one of which paid $120,000 for treatment.

The judge will determine after the preliminary hearing if there is enough evidence to have Young stand trial on 18 felony charges.


Two Valley Center people who ran a health retreat and administered intravenous treatment to terminally ill patients were charged with practicing medicine without a license and grand theft, according to the San Diego County District Attorney's office.

"Offering intravenous medical treatments in an unlicensed facility not equipped to handle terminally ill patients creates a public health risk," District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said. "Our Consumer Unit continues to prosecute individuals who are not licensed doctors and prey on those in our community who are sick, vulnerable and desperate to cure their illnesses."

Robert Oldham Young, 61, and Rocio "Rosie" Placensia, 32, were arrested Thursday by the U.S. Marshals San Diego Fugitive Task Force. Young runs the "pH Miracle Center" on his avocado ranch in Valley Center and is a published author of several books including the "The pH Miracle," a diet designed to "alkalinize the body." The charges allege Young and his staff went beyond advocating dietary changes and used intravenous treatments on patients.

Young, who wears a doctor's lab coat and is identified as a doctor on his website, was arraigned today on 18 felony counts. Placensia is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 30. If both are convicted, he faces 15 years and 8 months of prison time and she faces three years in county jail.

On his website, Young also advertises medical diagnostic services. Although not a medical facility, Young accepted patients, including terminally ill people, and housed them in temporary quarters on his avocado ranch.

The District Attorney's Consumer Unit is prosecuting Young. He remains under investigation by the Medical Board of California, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Office of Criminal Investigations, and the District Attorney's Office, which believe there could be more victims.

Anyone with additional information regarding the defendants is asked to contact the District Attorney's Office at 619-531-3507.

Free Public Veteran's Day Concert on November 11
The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters announced their 11th Annual Free Veteran's Day Concert on Tuesday, November 11. Doors open at noon.

Now a tradition, this program has been offered for many years by the band and choir students of Valley Center Middle and High Schools.  "Each year, we ask several hundred of our performing arts students to share their talents during their day off from school in order to celebrate and recognize all service members," said Diane Conaway, President of the Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters. "This free community event has a full house each year, so come early and enjoy pre-show entertainment from the Len and Greg Beck Jazz Duo, starting at noon."
Refreshments and light meals are available for purchase in the Maxine Theater lobby, located at the Valley Center High School.  The free concert starts at 1:00 p.m.

"Our job as Boosters of this incredibly talented organization is to continually support Valley Center's instructors and students in their amazing journey showcasing their many talents and hard work," added Conaway. "Our fundraising efforts start from day one of school and continue straight through numerous events leading up to our grand finale with the 4th Annual VCMusicFest set for Saturday, June 6 at Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center."
The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters budget supports approximately 700 students at five schools, including: performance and competition attire; musical instrument purchases and repairs so that no student misses the opportunity to pursue his or her passion; transportation to numerous competitions; and even an additional trailer for carrying all the items the performers need as the bands and choirs continue to grow.
The Valley Center Pauma/Music Boosters is a non-profit, all volunteer organization designed to support music in Valley Center and Pauma Schools. They are currently challenging the Valley Center Community to raise $100,000 this school year to help the students reach their continually growing audience, including invited performances at places like Disneyland and San Francisco.  Anyone can become a Booster member and contribute to this goal. 
In addition, the Boosters organize many fundraising opportunities throughout the year: Krispy Krème doughnut sales, cookie dough sales, the annual Jazz Benefit set for Sunday, March 8, 2015 and the VCMusicFest on June 6, 2015.  The profits generated at this concert's concessions stands are used to meet our goal, so please support the students' endeavors.

So I Was Thinking…“Back-up Plan”
By Phyllis Knight  
Remember when times were simpler? Not always better, but definitely simpler. Not so many choices to make – and especially about things we didn’t understand. For instance, I am so not high-tech. My husband recently asked me what kind of new phone I wanted and I said “pink”… Apparently, not the answer he was seeking.
I don’t pretend to comprehend even half of the gadgets (is that even still a word?) that I have. Worse, about the time I’m just getting used to the one I do have, it’s time to get a new one (like the phone). But I do get used to it, and then can’t seem to function well without it. Go figure.
Like I said, I get comfortable - dare I say, even confident, and occasionally even competent - with what I have, and that’s why I like to keep what I have for as long as possible. (I’ve been married to the same man for 39 years... ‘nough said.) Now, take my car, for example. When I got my new Town & Country last year with all the bells and whistles (read: gadgets) after driving my Mountaineer for ten years, I was a little overwhelmed. I couldn’t even imagine what some of the buttons were for. It took me a little while to realize the little button with the red “up” arrow wasn’t an ejection seat. But, oh, how sometimes I wish it were. (Okay, who hasn’t thought one would come in handy for backseat drivers on occasion?) Don’t even get me started on the “hands-free phone set-up.” It only takes me five times longer to make a phone call now than it used to.
The back-up camera definitely was a new experience for me. Instead of relying on constant head-swiveling and neck-craning, I could actually be guided by the camera…if I could just learn to trust it. Aw, therein lies the rub. When you have depended on your own abilities to guide you, it isn’t easy to let go of that control and put your trust in something else. But, as I began to rely on it more, the more it proved itself trustworthy and true, and the more it has become second nature to trust it and let it guide me.
There are a couple of other things noteworthy about the camera as well. The first is, not only do I have to trust that the camera is true, I have to follow its guidelines or I’m in big trouble. I know that as long as I stay within the green lines, I’ve got smooth sailing. When I test the waters by edging into the yellow lines, it gets a little dicey, and I have to tread more carefully. If I dared to wade into the red lines, I’d be sunk.
The other important aspect of the camera is that across the top as you’re backing up is the warning: CHECK ALL SURROUNDINGS! In other words, just because you are staying within the lines, it doesn’t mean that you can’t or won’t be blindsided by those who are not following the same lines as you.
So I was thinking…
What a great way to depict our faith in God! If we’ve never trusted Him before, it takes a little getting used to, to allow ourselves to be guided by Him. As our faith grows, because of His faithful guidance, we are able to trust Him more, rely on Him more and follow His guidelines.
God is faithful and true, but our journey with Him runs smoother when we stay within the guidelines He has given us in His Word. And in His Word, He warns us to be on the lookout for those who cross our paths, not following His guidelines. He wants us to stay the course, ever mindful of those who intentionally, or even unintentionally, distract us, block our path, and/or cause us damage.
I drove a car recently without the back-up camera and was lost without it; I have come to depend on it that much. And that’s how we are without God, we’re lost. So, this begs the question, are you allowing God to be the camera directing your life? If not, then isn’t it time to back-up, and get your life in focus?
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:4-5 (NKJV)

Bates Nut Farm: A Valley Center Tradition 
By Assemblymember Marie Waldron 

For many people in San Diego County and throughout Southern California, Valley Center and Bates Nut Farm are synonymous. Since its founding over ninety years ago, visiting Bates Nut Farm has become a tradition for countless San Diego families.
From its beginnings as a family walnut farm, Bates has expanded to a major retailer providing pistachios, pecans, peanuts and other nuts from around the world. Over 5,000 square feet of retail space selling everything from jewelry and fudge to kitchen items and collectibles make Bates a major retail presence in Valley Center. Tractor parades, a yearly pumpkin patch, music festivals, craft fairs, gourmet food truck celebrations, a farm zoo and much more have made Bates Nut Farm an integral part of life in this region.
But Bates Nut Farm is much more than a retail location. Bates often donates use of its property to nonprofits such as the American Cancer Society, which recently raised $90,000 at their Relay for Life event. Valley Center Lion's Club and Valley Center Optimists are among local service organizations holding fundraisers and selling food at many Bates events. Bates also donates sales and clothing items to the Assistance League Thrift Store in Escondido and supports Coffee for Kids, a non-profit that provides medicine for sick children in Honduras. 
Through its sponsorship of community events, its support of local charities and numerous philanthropic organizations, Bates Nut Farm has become an example of how hard work pays off, not only for the entrepreneur -- in this case four generations of the Bates family -- but for the entire community. For these reasons I am proud to designate Bates Nut Farm as my October Business of the Month.

Missing Person at Risk - Julian
Update 10/13/14: A reported sighting of 75-year-old Sally Estabrook, who has been missing for more than a week, led dozens of Sheriff's Search and Rescue (SAR) volunteers to a Scripps Ranch neighborhood. However, the search turned out to be fruitless.
The Sheriff's Department received a tip Monday afternoon (October 13th) from someone who reported seeing a woman matching Sally's description walking northbound along Semillon Boulevard at Scripps Trail. Search and Rescue volunteers were quickly called into the area.
After hours of searching, SAR volunteers located the woman who was originally spotted. However, it was not Sally Estabrook.
Sally, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, was last seen on Saturday, October 4th at the Pinezanita RV Park and Campgrounds in Julian. Her husband took a shower and when he returned, Sally was gone.
Since then, hundreds of volunteers have searched the area in and around the Julian campground for any sign of Sally. The search for Sally will resume on Tuesday morning, but on a smaller scale.
Sally Estabrook stands 5'4" tall, weighs 145 pounds and has shoulder length blonde hair. She may be wearing a teal top and white capris pants.
Because Sally suffers from Alzheimer's, she isn't very communicative, but might respond to her name.
If you have seen Sally or have any information on her whereabouts, call 9-1-1 or the Sheriff's Department at (858) 565-5200. 
If you have a loved one who suffers from Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia, you're encouraged to register for the Sheriff's Take Me Home program.
It is a free and confidential database only available to local law enforcement agencies. It contains photos, crucial medical information and special care instructions for people with Alzheimer's and likely to wander off or children with special needs.
It helps to know during a search if the patient is a non-verbal, doesn't want to be touched or would only respond to a certain name.
Sheriff's Search and Rescue (SAR) has been activated for a 75-year old woman with Alzheimer's who walked away from a campground in Julian.
Sally Estabrook was last seen today, October 4th, around 4:00 p.m. at the Pinezanita RV Park & Campgrounds located in the 4400 block of Highway 79. When Estabrook's husband finished taking a shower, he noticed she was gone. The Sheriff's Department was contacted just before 5:00 p.m.
Sally Estabrook stands 5'4" tall, weighs 145 pounds and has shoulder length blonde hair. She may be wearing a teal top and white capris pants.
Because Estabrook suffers from Alzheimer's, she isn't very communicative, but she might respond to her name.
If you see Estabrook, call 9-1-1 or the Sheriff's Department 24-hour line at (858) 565-5200.
