New Pacific Beach Alcohol Restrictions Face Council Opposition

I love the booze ban! It was so bad we stopped taking our kids there and would drive to Del Mar because people were so drunk I was scared for my children. Come on licensed for 10 but has >60 establishments, that's a shame.

How Does Divide Between Labor And Business Impact Local Politics?


I wholeheartedly agree with you. Don't wait to come to the table every 3 years, how about coming to the table several times before contract negotiation season. Our union has started doing this and contract season is not as heated as ones who wait to discuss issues during contract negotiations

What Is Economic Impact Of Supercenters?

Wow! What a great Roundtable this morning! I several times found myself talking to the radio, a little embarrassing. Anyhow on the subject of Wal-Mart, one of the commentators made a very valid point that Wal-Mart tends to drive down not just the cost of goods but also wages. Those who are very anti-government aid should think long and hard before endorsing Wal-Mart blindly. You drive down wages and provide extremely expensive healthcare plans you will see more and more people getting on government assistance programs.

And you cannot possibly believe that Wal-Mart operates as an independent in a free market. They have some of the largest political influence through lobby and political funding.

Is San Diego Finally Addressing Long-Term Debt?

Wow! listening to this, I'm stunned at how easily one of the guests completely dismissed the passionate feelings of those who post on newspaper websites.

Latinos Are Majority In Escondido, But Feel Targeted By Police

I don't think anyone is calling anyone a racist in this article. The concern comes from the rights of Latino Americans being subject to illegal search and seizure. Will my children be racially profiled and subjected to an overzealous police force. All it takes is ONE incident like this to make you hyper-vigilant against it happening to your offspring.

Fact is the demographic is changing.
