We had the distinct pleasure of meeting retired pharmacist Tak Sugimoto and a few of his friends in Encinitas for a radio story Jeff created for Jazz88.  Listen to hear about Japanese Internment from the perspective of a local who experienced it first-hand…

The City of Encinitas was deeply affected by the events of a dark period in our nation’s history. City Stories reporter Jeff Smith sheds some light on someone who made the best of these trying times.
