Historic San Diego Landmark: The Cosmopolitan Hotel In Old Town

The faithful and meticulous historic restoration of the Cosmopolitan Hotel is one of the most exciting architectural achievements in decades for San Diego. Kudos to the extraordinary team, particularly chief architect David Marshall, for this important historic moment not only for Old Town San Diego but for the great State of California itself.

Teacher Pay Becomes Election Issue In San Diego Unified

There is a whole list of reasons I'm voting for Kevin Beiser for School Board.
It should be noted he is a teacher. Not just a teacher but Math Teacher of the Year.

He Helped turn around an under performing school--we need this kind of can-do attitude on the Board.

If you talk to his kids and their parents you'll find out he puts Kids first in the class room every day.

Kevin Beiser is a school teacher who will fight for smaller class sizes.

And Kevin Beiser is the only candidate endorsed by the President of the San Diego County Board of Education, President of the San Diego College Board of education and numerous other educators.

Visit for more information.

Art Deco Treasure Demolished

CVGracie doesn't know what she/he is talking about.

I attended a screening this week at the Joan Kroc Center of the documentary about SOHO's 40 years of historic preservation. A large group of us were inspired and thrilled by the accomplishments of SOHO. Look around San Diego and try to name an historic building that wasn't saved by SOHO. The film showed one SOHO save after another. Simply amazing and brilliant. This business about this "not being the first time that the organization and its leadership has failed to act effectively, and our city is the lesser for it," is quite frankly bogus bunk.

Cities from all over the country have called upon SOHO for advice on saving their local landmarks because they are an extremely effective preservation organization. I urge everyone to see the film and learn the truly great story that is SOHO.
