    Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Market has added a new vegetarian café to its growing mix. The only customer-owned grocer in San Diego, People’s, a food cooperative with more than 14,000 members, recently opened OB Garden Café, formerly Tiny’s Tavern, at 4741 Voltaire St. It is just down the street from its two-story grocery-deli parent at 4765 Voltaire St. Also two stories, the new cafe has an art-deco ambiance, sporting a giant peace sign covering an entire wall, with multi-level, outdoor pet-friendly dining space and a sun roof. The full-service organic vegetarian eatery currently serves lunch and dinner, but will be open soon for breakfast. The café serves organic teas and coffees, fresh-pressed juices and healthful smoothies. The café will also soon be serving organic beer on tap plus organic wine on its second floor, with outdoor seating on both floors. Jim Kase, People’s general manager, said the OB co-op has been around some 45 years since the ’70s.  “It started in a garage,” said Kase of the grocery’s genesis, noting it was begun by Obecians “who just wanted good healthy organic food for themselves and their families. They weren’t happy with the way the commercial grocery business was going with use of a lot of herbicides and pesticides, etc.” Kase said the independent organic grocery went through several “iterations and little-bit bigger buildings” until the mid-’80s, when they went from a collective totally owned by the workers, to a consumer’s cooperative, which is owned by the shoppers and workers. “That brought a lot more capital into the business,” said Kase. “Our store, our business, is owned by the community. We give back to the community and this (cafe) is something our owners wanted.” People’s is run by a board of directors. “Building the café was a board decision,” said Kase, who is charge of operations at the collective. Why a café? “It’s something our owners have been asking for a long time, to have a fresh juice and smoothie bar,” said Kase. “We don’t have room for it over at the store. When this property opened up, we thought this was a perfect opportunity to fulfill the wishes of all the owners who had wanted something like this for a long time. So everybody’s excited about it.” Kase said a lot of the wood in the café interior is “reclaimed wood from the previous building.” Kase noted the café offers an alternative to its cafeteria-style grocery-deli up the street. “The café’s more vegetarian-vegan and menu-driven,” Kase said. “They’re really meant to complement each other.” Kase added People’s just got a beer and wine license for the café. OB Garden Café had a soft opening the second week of December and plans are to have a grand opening sometime in February. “Business is growing day by day in our community-based, family- and pet-friendly café,” Kase said.

    Photographer Jim Grant recently captured a brilliant green flash from Sunset Cliffs. A green flash, which occurs more commonly at sunset — but can also occur at sunrise — is a phenomenon in which part of the sun can be observed suddenly and briefly changing color. It usually lasts only a second or two — which is why it is referred a flash — as the sun changes from red or orange at sunset, for example. The green flash is viewable because refraction bends the light of the sun. The atmosphere acts as a weak prism, which separates light into various colors.

    Maximizing online presence was the main topic at Ocean Beach MainStreet Association’s  annual marketing breakfast Jan. 9 at Wonderland. Denise (Denny) Knox, OBMA’s executive director, asked participating merchants to identify themselves, then pointed out the broad cross-section of businesses represented made OB a “one-stop shop.” Recapping accomplishments from 2017, Knox described it as a “busy year.” She added the farmers market, one of the beach community’s signature events, celebrated its 25th anniversary last year. “It really put us on the map,” said Knox of the market held year-round on Newport Avenue, Wednesdays from 4 to 8 p.m. featuring locally grown produce, art and live music. Of the gathering’s purpose, Knox commented, “Our mission is to promote and support local business and economic vitality in the Ocean Beach community. By putting on events like the marketing breakfast, we’re able to provide the members with free tools they can use to enhance their promotional efforts and help them succeed.” Knox stressed the need to draw out-of-towners to OB’s business district. She cited the draw at the weekly farmers market as one prime example. “About 50 percent of the people that go to the farmers market are visitors,” she said adding, “We have a population that is very static. You can’t really grow. So we need to push to get visitors to come from outside the area to support these businesses.” The business improvement district chief noted there’s one other big anniversary upcoming. “This year is the 40th anniversary of this organization,” she said adding, “Someone told me when we started, ‘It will never work.’ It’s been a great run for 40 years. We’ll have a lot more years to go.” Knox said a promotional passport program encouraging guests to visit local businesses on Small Business Saturday, offering a chance to compete for a raffle prize, was a big success. Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to promote small businesses. “American Express pays for all the advertising, and we’d like to make it bigger and better this year,” Knox said of OBMA’s participation. Along with Knox, presenting at the OBMA breakfast Jan. 9 was Shannon Brown, president of Brown Marketing Strategies. Brown talked about the overwhelming importance of using all the various vehicles — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Yelp, Linked In, Mapquest, etc. — available on social media to cross-promote business. Brown cited web roaming, researching an item online before actually going to a brick-and-mortar store to check it out in-person, as one of the latest marketing trends.  “During Black Friday/Thanksgiving weekend, 69 percent of shoppers surveyed said they were web roaming,” said Brown adding, “Content is still king,” when it comes to what shoppers are looking for in website ads.  Brown added other growing marketing trends include the increasing significance of mobility, content, outsourcing, reliance on websites for information, data and authenticity as important considerations in promotional marketing. Brown said the top five most-searched business types were clothing lines, restaurants, food trucks, record labels and daycare. She added the most common small businesses searched were bookkeeping, computer repair, car repair, web design and restaurants/cafes/bakeries. The 39th annual OBMA Awards Celebration will take place Thursday, Jan. 25 at the Point Loma Masonic Center, 1711 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., from 6 to 8 p.m. The celebration is for OBMA member businesses, their families and special guests.

    A large northwest swell producing large surf will fade into the late afternoon on Thursday, Jan. 18. A new northwest swell will increase the surf again Thursday night, peak Friday, and then gradually diminish late Saturday. Surf will will reach 7 feet high Thursday. Then on Friday, waves will be 5-10 feet high with sets up to 12 feet high through evening. On Saturday, waves will be 4-8 feet high with sets to 10 feet high. The highest surf will occur in southern San Diego County and northern Orange County. A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents, beach erosion and dangerous swimming conditions. Expect waves overtopping jetties and coastal rocks as well as sneaker waves. There may be some minor coastal flooding during high tides.

    New study to evaluate airplane flight paths and noise in coastal neighborhoods

    A new study titled “Part 150” has been green lighted to evaluate flight-path improvements and noise reductions in and around San Diego International Airport. Noise has been a real sore spot for coastal residents from the Point to La Jolla, who allege flight-path changes the past couple years have negatively impacted their lifestyles. Recently, District 2 Councilmember Lorie Zapf spoke before the Airport Authority on the  merits of the Part 150 study. “As your council member, I have advocated for reduction in airport noise in our communities,” Zapf said. “As part of my support for the Part 150 study, I have requested the FAA be a proactive partner to improve the quality of life in surrounding communities.” Part 150, a federal aviation regulation, guides and controls planning for aviation noise compatibility on and around airports. The federal regulation establishes procedures, standards and methodologies to be used by airport operators for preparation of Airport Noise Exposure Maps.  Such exposure maps are used in the Quieter Home Program, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s Residential Sound Insulation Program. The FAA has determined that residences within the 65-plus decibel-level limit around SDIA may be eligible for sound-insulation treatments to mitigate aircraft noise. The FAA has set a goal of reducing interior-noise levels for eligible residents by at least five decibels inside the home, providing a noticeable noise reduction. But not everyone is certain the Part 150 study will be a cure-all for decreasing airport noise in communities directly impacted from alleged flight-path changes. One skeptic is Gary Wonacott, Mission Beach Town Council president. “Clearly, the FAA modifications benefitted some areas of Mission Beach, mainly the north, and negatively impacted South Mission Beach,” Wonacott said. “According to responses from residents in PB and La Jolla, they were also negatively impacted by some of the flight path changes. “The key point here is that Part 150 cannot be used to assess the benefits of the procedural changes proposed for Mission Beach and La Jolla, because these communities are not in the 65-decibel area. As you know, currently, the majority of our noise complaints come outside our 65-decibel contour,” Wonacott said. Wonacott admitted, however, the FAA is showing a willingness to compromise. “The FAA has demonstrated that they are willing to look at procedural changes that reduce noise outside the 65 decibel limit,” he said. Point Loman Casey Schnoor has been a watchdog for the NextGen and airport noise situation for more than two years. A citizen’s representative on a 15-member airport subcommittee, Schnoor and his colleagues came up with 21 recommendations for “quieting” airport noise in coastal communities in the airport’s flight path, following a year of deliberations. Schnoor talked about the goal of those 21 recommendations. “The goal is to mitigate the impacts to the communities of any of those flight paths, or adjacent to those flight paths,” he said. Is the Part 150 a step in the right direction? “I am cautiously optimistic,” Schnoor replied. “Part 150 is a process. It appears to be the best vehicle to execute all those [recommended] changes.” Schnoor noted Part 150 is an 18- to 24-month process. “We don’t want to sit on our hands for two years, when a lot of these things are problems today,” Schnoor said, adding, it’s also important to continue monitoring “day-to-day issues and procedures” with airport operations. That needs to be done, he said, to hold the federal agency accountable for its operations, and to ensure the Airport Authority remains responsive to citizens’ concerns and complaints about aircraft noise. Schnoor said the airport points to noise issues remaining relatively stable the past couple years. But he’s quick to caution: “You need to look at the multi-year picture, year over year. At a quick glance (at recent data), nothing has changed. But if you go back to 2014 and see the data on missed approaches, early turns, curfew violations, etc. you’ll see where the current figures have come down from.”

    Mr. Schwab,

    Thank you for your informative reporting in this week’s Beach and Bay related publications as well as making time for our conversation last week.

    However, I would like to point out two areas of important clarification:

    1) As part of our conversation as well as the written information I provided to you last week, I was focused upon the very important community expectation that a FAA 7100.41a (“41a”) analysis is to be conducted “in conjunction with” and “in concert with” the Part 150 study. The importance of the concurrent 41a study was also emphasized by members of the SDCRAA Board of Directors during their discussion to approve the Part 150 process on December 7th. This very important link was missing from your article.

    In sum, SDCRAA has provided the community with their assurances that in their discussions with FAA, FAA has stated their willingness to do a concurrant 41a. This is most important as there is a critical nexus between the two efforts in that the 41a may be required by FAA to execute on many of the route revisions, as requested within the subcommittee list. Therefore, to avoid further delays to the study, the 41a study needs to be initiated concurrant with the Part 150 as it is a is critical componet for the timely success of the Part 150 process. Please note however that commencing the 41a process is at the sole discretion of the FAA and therefore it is a key element that the community has been and will continue to press SDCRAA to firm up with FAA, beyond their current “assurances”.

    2) In quoting me, “You need to look at the multi-year picture, year over year. At a quick glance (at recent the data), nothing has changed. But if you go back to 2014 and see the data on missed approaches, early turns, curfew violations, etc. you’ll see where the current figures have come down from.”

    The key context that is missing from this quote is that when looking at year over year data, each of the various violations tracked spiked significantly up during or after 2014 to never before reached peaks, so that “where the current figures have come down from” …. must be compared to 2014 and before to see that these violation events, while at or in some cases below their peaks, still remain well above 2014 and years prior. Further, these are “day to day” matters that are under the direct day to day control of FAA’s Air Traffic Control (“ATC”) located adjacent to Miramar Air Station and, while inclusive within the 21 subcommittee recommendations to explored within the Part 150, they can be directly addressed by ATC today, not after the lengthy Part 150 process.

    These are both very important elements of the communities poisiton. As such, your further clarifiacation and amplication of these points would be greatly appreciated.

    Should you need further clarificaiton, I would be more than happy to assist as needed to promote these key points.

    Sincerely,

    R. Casey Schnoor
