Miracle League Opening Day

Miracle League Opening Day

The Miracle League of San Diego hosted its 15th Opening Day on March 8 at Engel Family Field, a Little Padres Park, at San Dieguito Park. The league celebrated its largest season yet with teams from both the North County and South Bay, which included 215 players and over 300 team volunteers. The day ran smoothly thanks to the local San Dieguito chapter of National Charity League, which provided mother and daughter volunteers. Also, a big thank you to Jersey Mike’s Solana Beach for providing 500 free subs for players, buddies, volunteers and coaches.

Pot shops have proven they can’t be regulated

‘Main Street’ concept does not apply very well to One Paseo project

I agree with Ian Stewart (March 13 Opinion). “Gussying up” existing strip malls does not provide the social interaction and neighborliness that a mixed use “Main Street” development would.  Where we differ is the question as to whether Kilroy’s “One Paseo” project will provide that experience without the whole region beyond One Paseo, including Del [...]

An alternative to Affirmative Action

Recently, the Senate Constitution Amendment 5 (SCA 5) was brought up in the state legislature in an attempt to overturn 1996’s Prop. 209, which prohibits our state government institutions from discriminating against/granting preferential treatment to any individual group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in employment, education, or contracting.

After the Prop B petition was submitted,  the City [...]
