San Diego Interim Mayor Gloria Ready To Hand Over The Reins To Mayor-Elect Faulconer

Personally, I thought Gloria would have made a better mayor than either Faulconer or Alvarez. Well, maybe next time! When's the next recall/special election in America's Finest City?

What You Can Find Out About A Person At Assessor/Recorder’s Office

I used the North County office and it was a treasure trove of information about people a well as property. I started with my birth certificate, then my parents' certificates, and then my aunt'death certificate. With the addresses on those I found info on the place my mom lived in when I was born, a little 540 square foot in 1 BR in North Park/City Heights that is now worth 289K; and the rent for which has gone up 55 times since I was born. Then if you go to Google and use their search engines you can find photos and even more info. It was a fascinating trip back in San Diego history. Warning: It can be addictive. FYI, the staff at the office I went to were very helpful and friendly.

San Diego River Restoration Involves Clearing Homeless, And Their Trash

I predict (again) that there is going to be a big jump in the number of people living like this in places like this in the coming weeks and months because of the end of unemployment benefits for 1.3 million people, many of whom have no alternative if they don't have a car to live in. The county, state and federal governments have no plan to deal with this; and most private charities are barely able to deal with their current work loads. First the number of people living in cars is going to go up. Then as their clunkers fail they'll be on the streets or in the river beds. And finally they'll be in hospital ERs or morgues waiting for the public administrator to wind up their affairs. It's sad, but it's reality; and it is going to happen. I know. I'm one of them.

Congress Secures Funding For San Ysidro Border Project

They should have contracted this out to one of the drug cartels. I'll bet they could have done it for a tenth the money in a quarter of the time.

The State Of San Diego's Inner City

Here's a last minute addition to the Report, thanks to USA Today (no local media have picked up on it yet). American Airlines is cutting its direct service from Lindbergh Field to Washington's DCA. What really hurts is when you look at the other cities that got dumped by AA and who they added to replace them. We may be America's Finest City but we sure aren't American's! Pity we can't get some of those Middle Eastern and Chinese airlines to fly out of San Diego.

Imperial Beach Hopes New Hotel Draws Tourists, Spurs Redevelopment

Right on the sand, huh? Based on what I saw in The Netherlands in the 1980s and how global warming then was effecting the rise in water levels on their coast and below sea level lands, I calculate that just about the time the mortgage on this place is paid off the sea levels will have risen high enough to put the entire first floor under water I hope the Cohns have planned to have a under water restaurant (Remember the old Marine Room in La Jolla?) with fresh seafood. Seriously, I hope this place does well. IB deserves some good news for a change.

Woman Says Filner Grabbed, Kissed Her During Meeting

This sounds like a remake of "What do you do when you catch two little kids playing doctor?"

Le Travel Store Shuts Its Doors After 37 Years

I was one of Le Travel Store's first customers when they opened their Horton Plaza store. I remember it vividly because I had never bought an intenational airline ticket ad the gal who sold it to me had never sold one before. We managed to get through the process together and that launched my career as a travel writer many, many years ago. Thanx Bill and Joan for the many years of service to the community. I hope you have many years of travel ahead. Bon voyage!

Lilac Hills Ranch Proposal Challenges County General Plan

Ah, they do have a corporate web site http://www.accretivellc.com One name stands out, Edgar Bronfman, Jr. That explains everything. Well, almost everything. Do you think he'd be willing to live in a project like this? I don't think so.

Lilac Hills Ranch Proposal Challenges County General Plan

A few thoughts: 1) Col. and Mrs. Irving Solomon must be rolling in their graves. 2) It maes no sense for the California Conservancy to be acquiring land in this area to try and save it when the developers are running rampart trying to make a fast buck. 3) I've been roaming that area for over 50 years and its part of what makes San Diego San Diego. The fact that so few people knew about it made it all the more previous. Anybody who drives or walks through that area can see that the topography doesn't allow for the kind of infrastructure that project would need, unless the taxpayers pay for it. 4) I looked at the Accretive project web site and noticed two things: There was no info on the developer or who's behind this scheme; and if you read the Legal Notice it is frightening. The developer reserves the right to change the proposa at any time for any reason, etc. It's carte blanche to rape, loot, and pillage at will. I haven't been this outraged since the Navy built the new Navy Hospital in Balboa Park. Mark my words, if this goes through those beautiful old oaks are fire wood.
