Curious San Diego

What do you want to know about the San Diego and Imperial County region? What have you always wondered about? We want to know what you want to know about, whether it’s a question about our history, our environment, our government, unusual places … you name it.

This is your chance to contribute to the news agenda.

What kinds of things can you ask? Here are a few ideas:

  • Why does traffic always back up on on the I-15 south at Via Rancho Parkway?
  • What’s the story behind the Over-The-Line tournament?
  • How did seals end up in the Children’s Pool?

Ask your questions. If we choose yours, we’ll be in touch with you.
