During a morning newscast on Friday, July 3, KPBS indicated that parking meters in San Diego, and most cities around the county, would not be enforced that day. In fact, while there was no enforcement at some meters on Friday, parking laws were enforced at many other meters, including in downtown San Diego. There was no enforcement of parking meters on Saturday, Independence Day.
A month into mandatory conservation, San Diego’s water department is receiving hundreds of calls to its water waste hotline. But KPBS reporter Katie Orr says no one has been fined yet.
An 11-year-old boy will be featured at Tijuana's Sunday afternoon bullfight. KPBS Reporter Amy Isackson reached Michelito Lagravere and his father at their home in southern Mexico's Yucatan and spoke with them about how Michelito got his start.

First we had Claude Chabrol's "A Girl Cut in Two" and now we have Anne Fontaine's "The Girl From Monaco" (opening July 3 at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas).
