Maria, a former Barona Casino food and beverage manager, runs her shop with abundant support from John and their five daughters. Never intending to open her own restaurant despite a hankering“ to do it right” for herself, Maria spent 40 years in kitchens and restaurants, starting as a child at her Italian grandmother’s stove. She had retired from overseeing Barona’s restaurants following a near-death cancer experience and was helping John restore their 1971 Pacemaker motoryacht. Watercolors and oils by local artist Caroline Braun line the walls, while jewelry handcrafted by daughter Crystal Yakkey fills glass cases. Ornamental jars of vegetables sit atop wrought-iron racks, along with typical marina necessities. The lifesize Santa and flocked Christmas tree are the first hints that Maria’s Café is not your usual marina deli, which often sells humdrum sandwiches and minimal boat supplies. “Bring your gift by the café by the 19th so you can pick up your number on the 20th.

losses to the city at about $ 200,000 per year for the program. The city loses a little under $ 100,000 in tax revenue every year because of new contracts, according to city reports. The city now requires that new applicants for a Mills Act agreement present a 10-year plan to reinvest savings back into the program. The City Council’s recently adopted changes also cap any tax To be fair to those waiting in line, the council also decided that homes awaiting designation would pay about $ 500 instead of $ 1,185 just to be considered for a historic designation. The designation is a requisite for a Mills Act deal with the city. Fee hikes totaling about $ 3,000 per home were among the changes adopted by the City Council in recent weeks. “So our goal was to recover the actual staff costs,” said Cathy Winterrowd, a senior planner with the city.“ We didn’t have a number in mind that we wanted to generate a certain amount of revenue; it was just to recover staff costs.” As a result, the City C...

Prescott has been the funeral director in Ocean Beach since January and has been in the funeral business for five years. In a tense Creating the wreaths is a way for Prescott and McFarland to unwind after busy workdays. The living wreaths are not the typical holiday wreath — although they can be hung on the door, they prefer to be misted daily and lie flat as a centerpiece on the table. Another big difference between a succulent living wreath and the usual holiday wreath is that the succulents are bedded in dirt and moss, so they are constantly growing and changing, Prescott said. “It’s therapeutic. It grounds me,” Prescott said of digging in the soil. “It’s like making a work of art and pasting in the right color of plant.” About two years ago, the two started turning their succulents into wreaths for friends and family. After seeing a small wreath at a native plant sale at the Water Conservation Garden in El Cajon, it inspired them to experiment with the process and produce larger...
