    Nov 6, 2014 | The San Diego Union-Tribune

    Tuesday's decision of Escondido voters to lopsidedly reject Proposition H - which would have allowed for construction of 430 homes on the 110-acre site of the defunct Escondido Country Club and golf course - was completely predictable. Club owner Michael Schlesinger sealed the measure's fate earlier this year when foul-smelling raw chicken manure was spread on his property near homes in what project opponents persuasively argued was a childish attempt at retribution.

    A worker cuts up a felled tree on the old Escondido Country Club golf course last summer - J. Harry Jones - The lopsided defeat this week of a ballot initiative that called for hundreds of homes to be built on the blighted Escondido Country Club property begs the questions "what happens next" and "why did it lose by such a great margin." Although some provisional ballots remain to be counted, election results updated early Wednesday showed that only about 39 percent of city voters supported Proposition H, which sought to undo last year's City Council decision that rezoned the 110-acre golf course site as open space.
