White Nationalist Activity At Local Colleges

White supremacist activity is revealed at local colleges; A leak of 200,000 chat logs show a group called Identity Evropa is attempting to recruit students at San Diego universities. The San Diego Union-Tribune reviewed the documents and found the extremist group visited local colleges at least a dozen times in recent years.

Pension Ruling

The city of San Diego is court-ordered to pay thousands of city workers who did not receive pension plans when they were hired. In 2012 voters approved Proposition B, which discontinued pension plans for new employees. Instead, they were offered 401(k) retirement plans. A judge ruled the measure was placed on the ballot illegally.

Greener Gas Options

Southern California utility companies are proposing to offer customers what they claim is a cleaner energy source. The mission is to turn wastewater into natural gas. When organic materials like waste decompose, they produce methane. That methane is then purified and can be used like traditional gas to heat homes, fuel vehicles and for cooking.

The Padres kicked off the 2019 baseball season at Petco Park against the San Francisco Giants. Fans sense a season of promise with the addition of Manny Machado and highly-touted rookie Fernando Tatis Jr.
