Rise In Referendums: A Look At Why Paid Signature Gatherers Have Staked Out Your Supermarket

I hope Goldsmith isn't implying that because the Progressives of 1900- the 1910s were "different" than today's Progressives, that they would, if alive, be supporting him and the other Republicans.

Nurse Wanting Help For Marine Says Filner Made Unwanted Sexual Advances

waka-mole: I've commented as much as almost anyone and nobody has offered me anything, and I could really use the money.
I understand the head of the KPBS news department used to be Donna Frye's Chief of Staff, is this true, and should it be disclosed by the station? Seems like the reason why they might be getting all the scoops.

Food Truck Market Draws Complaints In Downtown San Diego

Dizzy: the food trucks all have business licenses and are inspected with letter grades by the County ( presumably all "A"s). I would like to hear more about the connection with gourmet food trucks and graffiti, it seems laughable on the surface. There has been graffiti Downtown since the 19th century.

Food Truck Market Draws Complaints In Downtown San Diego

Dick's has been serving the same wings, beer and insults for decades. Them and about 50 Italian places. It's good to have a choice one day a week. What an ungrateful bunch.

Council President Gloria Shows Support For Filner's Plaza De Panama Plan

Gloria's turning radius is wider than the Queen Mary. But he will get there eventually, I suppose.
Here is a tip for parking in the Park, for whoever is listening: make the spots in places like the southern half of the old Navy Hospital lot, Balboa Drive, and Marston Point not be usable before 9:30 am. Then all the park spots won't be taken by Navy Hospital workers, City College Students, and Downtown workers. This, combined with better shuttles and opening up Inspiration Point to public parking. It was insulting to see that area, which we own and not the Navy, totally empty during the Earth Fair.

Exposition Fosters Confusion About Balboa Park History

Thanks for setting people straight on this. One slight correction regarding your statement " But the one we know today didn’t really exist prior to 1915. Before that it wasn’t even called Balboa Park": City Park WAS called "Balboa Park" before the Expo, for 5 years or so.

Filner Has New Plans For Plaza de Panama

AcessSanDiego: you are just replaying the spin of others. I encourage you to do some original research. Every time I go to the Old Globe, I see disabled folks being dropped off at the crosswalk in front of the theatre, or getting in or out of cabs there. Under the Jacobs plan, they would have to travel about 10 times as far, with changing topography, from the Alcazar lot. Have you ever thought about the situation if an elderly or disabled person's car gets stalled in "the ditch" after the bridge, where there are no sidewalks? You can't just come on here with a username like that making statements that are not fully researched, of course you are going to have heard more from the proponents than the opponents of this: they are the ones that can afford to hire professional PR people. Don't get suckered in please!

Restored Hotel Gives Lifeline To Mentally Disabled Adults At Risk Of Homelessness

I remember when the City drove out the business McPhearson Leather, and then really did nothing with the ground floor business anyway. I hope there can be some interesting and useful storefronts there.

Jacobs On Plaza De Panama Plan: 'It's Over'

I certainly find fault in you assumption that the Earth Day would have only been affected for one year. There would have been 2 years of construction, and a third year that the Cenntenial Committe had the right to not have any event in the Park that they didn't want ( including Earth Day and December Nights). As far as I could see, the soonest that Earth Day would be back in the normal location would be 2016. And you assumptions that there is a lot that you know about this project and, in fact, the Park in general is based purely on wishful thinking and with no factual basis whatsoever.

Jacobs On Plaza De Panama Plan: 'It's Over'

The bridge railing retrofit is being done by CALTRANS, and would be done if the project were being done or not. It is good news in that at least one aspect of the Park is being maintained for safety. Also: CALTRANS objections to the Jacobs plan has been infrequently mentioned, but it would have been another problem with getting the project done besides the "technicality" (ie law). As much ad you might dislike SOHO, they are just one group that had the nerve and finances to pull this off, many other groups were against this, but often didn't want to loose Jacobs' funding for their projects or campaigns. Only groups like SOHO and the World Beat Center that weren't going to get anything from him anyway were able to be public about it.
