Tony Young To Resign From San Diego City Council

Maybe some of the money the city saves by paying council members so little can be used to fund the resulting interim elections when someone leaves for a better paying position.

Roundtable: Navy/Broadway; Orchestra Nova; Bilbray/Peters; Lightner/Ellis

Sorry I didn't hear the beginning of the show, but I tuned in right after the Orchestra Nova discussion started. I heard a number of statements that gave me pause.
For one thing, the supposition that Mr. Pak is doing just fine with the Cape Cod orchestra is exactly wrong. Nearly the exact same thing is happening there at about the same time. The musicians from there are well aware of our situation too.
Also, thank you for mentioning that the cancellation of shows occurred AFTER Mr. Pak's resignation, which was tendered a very short time before the opening concerts. WHO pulled the plug?
... and by the way speaking of set ensembles, the Old Globe has a summer repertory program with a set group of actors who learn to be an ensemble together for a season of shows. Musical repertory is what orchestras are all about. You can add whatever activities you want around that, but the core of musicians who have given their lives to the literature and have learned to work together as an ensemble will be at the heart of it all, as Nova's advertising has always claimed.
Don't forget there were sold out concerts with eager patrons and willing musicians ready to start a new season. One person couldn't continue to work out the differences. He resigned.
