San Diego County appears to havemade the “nice list” this holiday season.Barring last-minute misbehavior, theregion’s economy can expect several sig-nificant gifts this December, according toa SANDAG look at projected activity.

SANDAG chief economist Ray Majorbroke down national and regional statis-tics to highlight some of the key factorsthat will impact San Diego County duringthe holidays. Some interesting projectionsinclude:

Holiday spending in San Diego County- $5.3 billion — total dollars to be ded-

icated to retail and food service spendingin December

- $1,600 — average amount each res-ident will spend on food and retail pur-chases in December

- $900 — average amount adults willspend on holiday gifts

- Nearly 20 percent — expected spend-ing increase by residents in December onretail and food services compared to othermonths of the year

Holiday jobs- 30,000 — number of seasonal jobs

that will be supported by the holiday sea-son in San Diego County

- $32 million — total salaries to beearned by these seasonal workers duringthe holidays

Holiday travel- 91 — percentage of visitors who will

come to San Diego County by car inDecember

- 378,000 — additional cars that willtravel to San Diego County in December

- 104 million — total number of addi-tional miles expected to be logged by carvisitors while traveling to the region inDecember (4,200 trips around the world)

Holiday tourism*- 1.1 million — number of additional

visitors expected in the San Diego regionduring the month of December (enoughto fill Qualcomm Stadium 16 times)

- 730,000 — number of additional vis-itors (of the 1.1 million mentioned above)who will come from Mexico to shop andvisit friends and family in December

* (compared to non-peak months)

If Ocean Beach's Newport Avenuecould talk, you'd have a hard timeshutting it up. It's 128 years old,after all (OB was founded in 1887),and it's seen a shipload of neighbor-hood history, good, bad and ugly. 35of those years make up the heftygood side of the ledger with the OBHoliday Parade, the 36th install-ment of which is set for Saturday,Dec. 5, at 5:05 p.m. (“OB time”) upand down Newport between SunsetCliffs Boulevard and Abbott Street.It's on rain or shine, it's fantastic andit's free.

This year's theme is

Joy to the Sea –

36 Years Celebrating OB

Vintage VW bugs and woodys,floats, marching bands, Celtic bag-pipers, kids on unicycles, the SDRoller Derby Dolls, bands for days,ukulele serenades, Chopper theBiker Dog, an appearance by the BigMan himself: They're all part of“100 eclectic entries that will bringjoy, mirth and merriment to92107,” said Gretchen Newsom,president of Ocean Beach TownCouncil, which sponsors the event.

The parade, Newsom noted, ismounted by 100 volunteers in “atrue OPB grass-roots fashion, and itenlivens our community with theholiday spirit.” Events include deco-ration of the community Christmastree at the foot of Newport and thekick-off of a food and toy drive ben-efiting local families and seniors. Thelighting of the tree at the foot of

Newport will mark the beginning ofthe parade.

More than 35 years ago, fivebrothers that called themselves theJames Gang (today, the family ownsthe neighborhood's landmarksilkscreener of the same name) gotthe crazy idea to bring a Christmastree to town in hopes of establish-ing a little more identity for a grow-ing burg. Today, Ocean Beach toutsa population of 12,000 tightlypacked souls, and thousands ofthose (along with an equal numberof outsiders) are expected to wall off

Newport the entire evening. Most shops, bars and eateries are

expected to stay open for shoppers –and all of them owe a debt to histo-ry amid the brothers' simple gestureof neighborhood goodwill.

OB holds a special place in SanDiego's heart – the faster the calen-dar advances, the more the neigh-borhood stays put. Everybody's invit-ed to see what this means on Dec. 5;you're sure to come away with arenewed love for OB on Dec. 6.Happy Holidays!

SOME ESTATE PLANNING BASICS

1. Surprisingly to me, about 35% of folksdie without leaving a will or trust to pass ontheir property. This is called dying "intes-tate." The result is that your property pass-es to your heirs in a "pecking order" pre-established by the California Probate Code–possibly not in the manner you would havechosen had you made a will or a trust.Another negative consequence of dyingintestate is that your estate will have toundergo a costly and time-consuming pro-bate before title to the property can be trans-ferred to your heirs.

2. So, to pass on your property shouldyou use a will or a trust? As a starting point,if you own a home, you should make a trust.This is because when you die, no probate ofthe trust would be required, whereas a pro-bate would be required if this house passed,instead, by a will. When you do set up atrust, be sure to transfer title to the house bydeed to yourself as trustee of your new trust.

3. Just what is a "trust?" A trust is anarrangement whereby you as "trustor"transfer certain property to a "trustee" (typ-ically yourself while you are alive) who holdsand manages this property for the benefit ofa "beneficiary" (again, typically yourselfwhile you are alive, and whoever you leavethe property to, upon your death). Theterms of this trust are set forth in a trustinstrument (usually called a Declaration ofTrust or a Trust Agreement).

4. In the above case, what type of trustshould you use? Typically, you will use whatis called a revocable living trust. Such atrust is "revocable," since it can be changedin any manner or even terminated whileyou are still alive. It is "living," because it is

created while you are alive.5. If you create a revocable living trust, are

there other estate planning documents youshould create? If so, what are they? Yes,there are some supplemental estate plan-ning documents you should have. Here arethe most important ones:

Will – This will provide that anythingthat was not transferred into your trust, ordisposed of by other means (such as a lifeinsurance policy death benefit payable toits beneficiary) will pass to your trust and bedistributed as a part hereof.

General Power of Attorney – this is ageneral/financial power of attorney–desig-nating an "agent" to conduct your affairs ifyou are unable.

Advanced Health Care Directive – con-tains: a health care power of attorney – des-ignating an agent to make emergency med-ical and related decisions on your behalf ifyou are unable; "pull the plug" provisions ifyou so desire; and organ donation direc-tions as you see fit.

6. If you're married, what estate planningdocuments do you need? Typically a mar-ried couple will have one "joint" trust instru-ment between yourselves, and a separatewill, general power of attorney, and advancehealth care directive for each of you.

CHRISTMAS IN OB 3THURSDAY · DECEMBER 3, 2015THE PENINSULA BEACON

O’ CHRISTMAS TREE!A 114-year-old star pine gave itself up forOcean Beach on Dec. 1, as the Troncellito fam-ily donated 40 feet of the 120-foot tree behindtheir Brighton Avenue home as this year's com-munity Christmas tree. This is the second timein 12 years that the tree has been pressed intoservice. The same one was topped in 2003 andwas mounted at the usual spot, the foot of Newport Avenue and Abbott Street. The starpine, also called the Hawaiian Christmas tree, was originally grown in New Caledonia inthe South Pacific. OBecians donate blow-up beach balls and colorful lights, and SantaClaus pays a visit during the weekends in December. The tree stays put until a few daysafter New Year's. PHOTOS BY KEVIN HAGGERTY

The Olive Tree Marketplace Family Introduces “Ulivo”

Don’t Miss the Farmer’s MarketEvery Wednesday from 4pm-7pm on the 4900 block of Newport Avenue between Cable & Bacon Streetin the heart of OB! Locally grown produce, fresh flowers, baked goods, art, music and more!

Celebrating22 Years

Meet the Olive Tree Market’s new neighbor: UlivoRestaurant! (ooleevo)

The neighborhood restaurant, located right next doorto the market, has become a favorite meeting place, sat-isfying locals and visiting customers with its award win-ning Italian food.

Olive Tree Marketplace owner Chris Stavros and hiswife Adriana Alcaraz purchased Espresso Ristorante ayear ago when the former owner decided to sell andretire. In the past year, they’ve given the location a com-plete face-lift, hired a new chef, and completely changedthe menu and beer/wine list. However, they did notchange the name and that’s caused a lot of confusion.

“The restaurant was called Espresso for 40 years,” saidStavros. “Just a few weeks ago a couple walked in expect-ing a coffee shop. It’s time to retire the old name and moveforward with a new name that connects all of our busi-nesses in a meaningful way. We have the marketplaceand delicatessen and the Olive Tree tasting room, now it’stime to extend the name to the restaurant.”

Ulivo, which means Olive Tree in Italian, is a straight-forward concept: Simple, fresh ingredients prepared toorder, to create authentic regional and seasonal special-ties with a variety of flavors. There’s traditional pizzaand pasta, but also healthy alternatives like crisp sal-ads, house made soups, and fresh seafood.

The Olive Tree Marketplace has been a fixture inOcean Beach for 27 years. The Stavros family has beenin business in Ocean Beach since the 40’s when Chris’father, Mr. Cristos Stavros first owned and operated whatwas the “Corner Malt Shop” on Newport Avenue.

Ulivo, located at 1776 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., is open fordinner from 4pm to 9:30pm and closed on Tuesdays.Take-out food is available for pick –up only. Plans forweekday lunch are in the works. For more informationcall 619-224-2227 or visit www.ulivorestaurant.com

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can often be dif-ficult to want to spend the time to meal plan and cook. With stresses andflu season, we know this is a time of year when it’s very important to feedourselves and our loved ones wholesome, quality foods. Between shop-ping, parties, family obligations, everyday obligations and increasedpressures, fast-food options may be increasingly tempting and goodintentions for eating healthfully can go out the window. But with just afew ingredients and minimal prep time, you can have a healthy, home-cooked soup. Warm and comforting on a cool winter day, soups can eas-ily be turned into a meal by serving them with a loaf of crusty, whole-grain bread and a fresh tossed salad.

For the best selection of organic produce and grocery items in SanDiego stop by Ocean Beach People’s Organic Foods Market, at 4765Voltaire Street.

Can I draft a deed to myhome and give the propertyto someone else?

“An AttorneyYour Grandpa &

ProbateTrustsWills

There are many problems withdrafting your own deeds. The

problems encountered with deeds I have seen have caused many tax, legal and ownershipproblems. There are other forms that you have to completeand submit with deeds to children or parents. This willensure that the real estate taxes do not increase to the fairmarket value of the property. Recently a parent tried to givea property to one child, but the deed had no effect becauseit was not done properly. Unfortunately, there were manythousands of dollars in attorneys fees that were paid tostraighten it out. If a deed is not done correctly to place aproperty into a trust, you may end up in probate court. This will cost tens of thousands of dollars to fix. Joint tenancy deeds are different animals all together. Getting into and out ofthem properly require that you know what you are doing. If not, there may be additional property taxes to be paid or the transfer does not work.

This is complicated and the values of property here are so high that it really pays to hire anattorney to assist you in accomplishing your goals. Please call me or any other of the qualified attorneys in town to help you.
