It's been a busy week, and we'll sum up the news of the week on today's KPBS Midday Edition.
At the San Diego Unified School District, the plan to close some schools to help with the budget shortfall has been scrapped. Voiceofsandiego.org reporter Will Carless will tell us the latest.
KPBS Reporter Alison St John will discuss what's next for the Navy, after the California Coastal Commission said the plans developed in the 1990s are no longer adequate for redeveloping the headquarters on Broadway in downtown San Diego.
Plus, Occupy San Diego continues to demonstrate downtown. This weekend the movement is calling on the public to move money from bank accounts from traditional banks to credit unions. We'll tell you about Bank Transfer Day.
