The Lost Abbey has signed a lease on the former Stoked Café

NEWS from The Lost Abbey-Some of you have heard the news. The Lost Abbey has signed a lease on the former Stoked Café space with the intention of operating a satellite tasting room and events space. As residents of Old Creek Ranch, we love the community of San Elijo and can’t believe this space has become available.

The Lost Abbey was co-founded by my husband and his partners back in 2006. For some of you, this may be the first time that you have heard of us and if so, we are excited about the chance to meet and catch up over a beer or two.

We’re a little brewery with a big reputation but we pride ourselves on being great partners both here with our locals in San Marcos as well as our neighbors to the West (Cardiff by the Sea) where we operate another satellite tasting room called “The Confessional.”
As we’re currently in the planning phases, we don’t have a ton of details to share with you. But we wanted to make sure that we opened up an avenue for communication. If you have any questions, concerns or just want to say heck yeah can’t wait for you to open, we’d love to hear from you. Maureen Callahan Arthur

Gas line break shuts down thoroughfare in San Marcos; one school sending students home

A gas line break led authorities to close a main thoroughfare near Cal State San Marcos on Wednesday morning.

There was also an unplanned power outage in the area, which ultimately led officials at Double Peak school to release students early. It was not immediately clear if the gas line break and power outage incidents were connected. READ MORE from the UT

  • The average sales price was $845,000 or $338 per Sq Ft.
  • 42 homes are active on the market or 2.8 months of inventory
  • The average time on the market is 22 days

If you are one of the many San Elijo Hills homeowners considering buying a home this late summer/fall, let’s get together to help you find a house with the potential to be your dream home!

We’re in the back half of the year, and with a decline in interest rates as well as home price and wage appreciation, many are wondering what the predictions are for the remainder of 2019.

Here’s what some of the experts have to say:

Ralph McLaughlin, Deputy Chief Economist for CoreLogic

“We see the cooldown flattening or even reversing course in the coming months and expect the housing market to continue coming into balance. In the meantime, buyers are likely claiming some ground from what has been seller’s territory over the past few years. If mortgage rates stay low, wages continue to grow, and inventory picks up, we can expect the U.S. housing market to further stabilize throughout the remainder of the year.”

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR

“We expect the second half of year will be notably better than the first half in terms of home sales, mainly because of lower mortgage rates.”

Freddie Mac

“The drop in mortgage rates continues to stimulate the real estate market and the economy. Home purchase demand is up five percent from a year ago and has noticeably strengthened since the early summer months…The benefit of lower mortgage rates is not only shoring up home sales, but also providing support to homeowner balance sheets via higher monthly cash flow and steadily rising home equity.”

San Marcos nonprofit sponsors nature field trips for Title 1 schools

San Marcos nonprofit sponsors nature field trips for Title 1 schools

Every school year, hundreds of students take field trips to Jack’s Pond Nature Center to learn about our local ecosystem—and the important role they play in preserving it.

This year, even more students from all types of economic backgrounds will be able to participate thanks to sponsorships from Friends of San Marcos Parks and Recreation (Friends of San Marcos).

The nonprofit group is sponsoring several field trips for Title 1 schools, where at least 40 percent of students come from low-income homes.

“I have happy childhood memories of playing at Jack’s Pond and to this day, it’s still a communitytreasure. It gives kids a chance to disconnect from their phones and reconnect with nature,” said Friends of San Marcos board member Jason Simmons. “Our goal is to expand that enrichment to more children here in San Marcos.”

The Friends of the San Marcos Parks and Recreation will help hundreds of students learn about their local ecosystem this year.

Last year, Simmons helped Friends of San Marcos pilot the sponsorship program with several Title 1 schools, including San Marcos Elementary, Knob Hill Elementary and Joli Ann Leichtag Elementary in order to send 273 students to the nature center. Significantly, that accounted for about 35 percent of all the students who took field trips there last year.

Friends of San Marcos plans to ramp-up its support this school year by sponsoring field trips for allseven Title 1 schools in San Marcos. What’s more, the Vallecitos Water District has agreed to sponsor the cost of bus transportation, meaning all the schools can now participate with zero cost.

“These sponsorships are a tremendous gift to our community,” said Kim Valdovinos, City of SanMarcos Recreation Coordinator for Youth Programs. “This program teaches students about theirsurrounding environment and instills a sense of pride for living in San Marcos. We are teachingour future leaders how to appreciate and preserve our beautiful city.”

Jack’s Pond Nature Center is located at 986 La Moree Road. For more information about the center and the field trip program, please call (760) 744-9000 or visit san-marcos.net/play/jack-s-pond- nature-center.
