La Jolla High School is among about 120 San Diego Unified School District schools operating on a “minimum-day schedule” as triple-digit heat is set to grip the San Diego area on Tuesday, Sept. 16. After-school activities were canceled at all city schools. A National Weather Service heat advisory for the area valleys was in effect until 7 p.m. as high pressure and weak onshore flows continue to generate heat in the region. Forecasters said highs would be in the 80s along the coast, in the 90s a few miles inland and more than 100 degrees in the inland valleys. A five- to eight-degree cool-down is expected to bring some relief to the area beginning Wednesday, Sept. 17 -- but monsoonal effects from nearby Hurricane Odile wil lbring an increase in humidity, making things uncomfortable, if in a different way. The heat wave also prompted San Diego Gas & Electric to ask its customers to lessen the strain on the electric grid by reducing their energy consumption between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. SDG&E customers who participate in the “Reduce Your Use” program could receive a bill credit for doing so, according to the utility.

When does the La Jolla Village News start printing the truth? Nancy Gardner is currently being subject to legal action by four local organizations who were defrauded. The Village News has spoken to two of the organizations and knows that this is factual and current. Print the news please, and no more of these PR fluff pieces meant to cover up wrongdoing that occurred over a long period of time. With transparency is truth. Another truth that LJVN should finally print is the truth about becoming a Police Commissioner. It is a courtesy title and one that anyone gets simply by writing a check. It is not an honorarium of any sort. It is simply a thank you for that check. Which is precisely why there are so many Commissioners, and why none have backgrounds in law enforcement. Current commissioners include a male ballroom dancer and a real estate agent. All one needs to do is write a check. There is nothing wrong with that but let us at least be honest here. Do not confuse a courtesy with an honorarium of some sort.

Enjoyed Dave Scwab's article on LIBERTY Station. With all of the back & forth going on currently regarding lights for the Point Loma High School football field - why couldn't a multiuser facility be developed at Liberty Station with a lighted football field that could've used by Point Loma High School as well as other events. The area is more conducive to this type of activity/traffic flow and would seem to be a win-win for all.
