San Onofre: In the year since the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station was shut down, many revelations are coming to light about what led to failures in tubing that caused small radiation leaks.

San Diego School's CFO: Stan Dobbs, the new chief financial officer for the San Diego Unified School District, gave a frank - and at times misinformed - interview to Voice of San Diego reporter Will Carless about teachers' salaries and class sizes. The district's superintendent issued a correction.

Plaza de Panama: A judge upheld his decision against the planned renovation of Plaza de Panama as part of the centennial celebration in Balboa Park.

Path To Citizenship: A path to citizenship could emerge from the push for immigration reform, but it could be a very long one.

Meatball The Bear: An East County facility gives shelter to wild animals - including a black bear named Meatball.

I was startled to hear the biased discussion regarding SOHO’s court victory stopping the Jacobs plan to build a bypass off the Cabrillo bridge and install a pay-to-park structure behind the organ pavilion. It’s great that Irwin Jacobs is so generous in San Diego with his massive Qualcom fortune, but his seeming ability to mute the voice of all critics by having essentially bought media allegiance is frightening. There are plenty of better plans for getting traffic out of the Plaza de Panama, but you dismissed them just as your donor did.

After 2+ years of the Plaza de Panama controversy plaguing our city and ruining our public process in San Diego, how dare local reporter Katie Orr feign ignorance over the project and blatantly misrepresent the facts in favor of project proponent and major KPBS radio donor Irwin Jacobs? Shame on Orr and KPBS for letting a philanthropist compromise journalistic integrity. I would sooner donate to any other NPR affiliated radio station in the country than contribute to KPBS in San Diego. If anyone wants the true facts about Plaza de Panama and SOHO's legal victory, go here:
