    Momentum continues to build against scooters, as District 1 Councilmember Barbara Bry has called for a moratorium on them, while a Pacific Beach resident has initiated an online petition drive to ban them, which netted more than 300 signatures in 48 hours. “San Diegans deserve a safe, unobstructed and accessible public right-of-way,” said Bry. “Electric scooters have posed challenge after challenge on our City sidewalks, boardwalks and pedestrian walking areas. “In May, the City Council approved a permitting and regulatory program that went into effect July 1. We believed these rules could help reestablish order on our sidewalks,” Bry said. “Instead, we are left with companies willfully ignoring staging restrictions and geofencing requirements.” Meanwhile, PB resident Bill Zent has launched scooterban.com, with its petition drive to “neuter” scooters. States Zent’s website: “Restore sanity to our streets and sidewalks. Support Barbara Bry's proposed ordinance to ban scooters. Scooters are injuring the riders, pedestrians and pose a real hazard to everyone trying to have a casual walk at the beach or downtown or anywhere.” As of Aug. 5, Zent was more than halfway toward his goal of presenting 1,000 signatures in favor of banning scooters to the City Council. Zent gave a laundry list of reasons for his neuter scooter crusade. “They are being leased to underage minors and are a hazard to motorists and pedestrians,” he said. “There are so many of them you can’t even walk down the sidewalk without having to pick them up and move them… I saw a guy on a scooter the other day tandem riding with his baby on his chest. Enough is enough. “Personally, I think they need to go,” he said. “Even the corrals aren’t working. They’re full with all different kinds of scooters and bikes. Scooters are supposed to be for last-mile transportation. If people want to own a scooter, they can buy one for $200.” Excerpts from comments on Zent’s website: “This is not the transportation solution we need at the beach … It’s time for us to force these irresponsible companies to abide by laws and common sense … Ban this nuisance … I have neighbors who woke up to scooter corals directly in front of their front doors. I would love to have one of these painted in front of our councilpersons’ homes, see how fast they act on the issue … They are dangerous and an eyesore … Scooters are a menace to society and an absolute blight.” Ed Gallagher, a member of Pacific Beach Planning Group, speaking for himself, claimed to have been Zent’s first anti-scooter petition signer. “The idea of a ban/moratorium is clearly tapping into a great deal of local frustration on this issue from PB residents and businesses,” Gallagher said. “Not a permanent ban. It’s a moratorium until we work out how to do it safely and responsibly. In my personal opinion, the City should draft an RFP (request for proposals) and solicit bids to operate as we do with other public utilities.” Added Gallagher: “The City drafts a contract with terms that fit our needs and companies agree to those terms and, if they fail to comply, they lose the contract. What’s so hard about that?” In response to Bry’s call for a scooter “moratorium,” and some residents wanting them banned, City press secretary Christina Di Leva Chadwick said, “We believe the new scooter regulations allow the industry to evolve responsibly and gives the City the power to hold operators accountable by revoking permits for those that don’t follow the rules. “Given these regulations have been in place for only several weeks, additional time is necessary to determine if the laws in place are having the desired effect,” Di Leva Chadwick said. “The City continues to stress the need for maximum regulatory compliance, including geofencing, speed limits and staging.” Concerning alleged non-compliance of permit conditions by some scooter companies, Di Leva Chadwick said: “The City is actively monitoring operators to ensure maximum compliance of the law. While several operators have taken proactive steps to get into compliance following receipt of a notice of violation, the City has found, through field testing and evaluation, that one or more operators are still not in compliance. The City is now moving forward with a permit revocation process for one operator, and a notice of violation has been levied on a fifth operator.” Concerning problems/complaints the mayor’s office is getting about scooters these days, Di Leva Chadwick replied, “Geofencing, corral staging and user-compliance issues such as speed limits, double riding and other existing street laws." Regarding the Pacific Beach resident who has started an online petition drive calling for scooters to be banned all together, Di Leva Chadwick said: “Mayor Faulconer has previously supported, and continues to support, a scooter ban on the boardwalk. Unfortunately, the City Council did not see the need for such a measure and voted it down more than a year ago. The mayor welcomes the City Council’s reconsideration of a boardwalk ban at any time.”

    People are so stubborn and resistant to change. It’s like the automobile got invented and 20% of the people are pissed because the cars are scaring their horses and just go “too fast”.

    On demand, Any point to any point transportation, is revolutionary. The same way Uber opened up commerce as people could safely and inexpensively venture out and also cut down drunk driving, the scooters in their original form got people out of cars (and Uber’s), which cuts traffic and parking and gets people walking instead of driving everywhere (which is the butt of jokes about Californians).

    Point blank, the “quality of life” of living at the beach skyrocketed for 80% of the population & for tourists (which greatly support the economy and business) with the introduction of scooters. But a vocal minority of curmudgeons cry “I hate change” and take efforts to kill it. So they reduce the speed to 8mph (which is stupidly slow - why not like a more reasonable 12mph) and then destroy the any point to any point part of it with corals and no parking areas with no way to know where they are or aren’t (and in essence kill the entire convenience of the concept). So scooters are dead already with these moronic regulations, so they’ll disappear on their own because they are unusable now anyways. So the whining 20% or maybe 5% kill the future, and kill progress in transportation. Because bumper to bumper traffic and no parking and pollution and auto deaths provide such a great quality of life already. What a shortsighted joke.

    A progressive, forward looking city, one that will thrive in the coming future, not languish as the world changes around it and leaves it behind, would have done something more like this...

    Set a sensible speed geofence like 12mph. Ban all scooters except for one company that wins a bid with the city - any other scooter found gets immediately pulled and thrown away like garbage on the street. Then the select scooter company has to brand with the city in mind and price to allow for job creation of local “repositioners” to clear scooters left in irresponsible places. So users pay $.20/ minute instead of $.15 and the “trash” problem of scooters thrown everywhere is addressed. And the city heavily taxes the scooter activity, maybe $.05/minute to create a fund to add bike lanes everywhere to prepared for the coming change of transportation to electric scooters and bikes, which will greatly alleviate car congestion, parking problems, and pollution.

    How does a nuicence like these scooters help the environment? Many people just use them for "fun" at the beach. At least 50% under 16 and unlicensed. 0% wearing helmets.

    I've seen at least 1 to 3 accidents a day. Several involving head trauma and ambulances. The high-speeds, (and dangerous at low too)The upright posture of the rider, position of the hands, electric torque and small wheels on irregular surfaces. Do the Physics or as a ER Doctor.

    They are made in China and have batteries. Not very environmental The average life of one these I've been told is under 2 month. I believe that. People are actively destroying them to regain our sidewalks, driveways and everywhere they are littered.

    They have motors. The sidewalks and boardwalks are not where they belong. The Laws are written as "engines" not motors. It was an oversight that I hope is remedied soon.

    Add to many riding are overweight. They should be looking for solutions to their problem, not an easy ride. Buy a Bike.

    Celebrating International Cat Day with a super mom at San Diego Humane Society

    San Diego Humane Society’s Kitten Nursery is caring for a cat who gave birth to 11 kittens. This is rare, as the average litter size for cats is three to five kittens. Even more unusual, the cat has 11 nipples – one for each kitten. On average, cats have six to eight nipples and they almost always have an even number. “A healthy litter this size is incredibly uncommon and certainly not something we see every day in the nursery,” said Jackie Noble, kitten nursery manager. The mother and her kittens were discovered by a good Samaritan inside a dumpster in downtown San Diego. The finder said it did not look like someone had dumped the animals there, but rather the mother thought it was a safe place to hide and take care of her babies. The cat and kittens are all in good health. They are receiving care at SDHS’s Kitten Nursery, where they will stay until the kittens are ready for adoption and the mother can be spayed. As cute as the kittens are, a litter this large highlights the importance of spaying and neutering. It is critical for the community to work together to spay and neuter community cats. Cats can get pregnant about every three months, so it’s possible for a single cat to have more than 200 kittens in her lifetime. Community cats can be altered through trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs. Community cats are trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and ear-tipped for identification. After recovering, they are returned outdoors to live their lives without having any more kittens. SDHS offers free spay/neuter, vaccinations and ear-tipping for community cats at each of our three campuses. Learn more about community cats and TNR at sdhumane.org/services/community-cats/. International Cat Day is Thursday, Aug. 8.

    Getting a cure for HIV is a powerful concept, often spoken of as the Holy Grail of HIV research. Although effective anti-HIV drugs have transformed HIV into a chronic manageable condition – a condition you live with, rather than die from – taking life-long therapy is a very different proposition to being definitively cured.

    I put it to the whole human race that there is an affordable, scalable HIV cure that worked as well as would put the global eradication of new HIV infections within reach, while also transforming the lives of those now living with the virus.

    Given the effectiveness of this drug in both treating and preventing HIV infection, I will say to everyone reading this, that i am a living witness to it. Unlike fraudsters and online scammers who will play you and leave you frustrated with lose of money and hope, this drug cost less and it is worth a try.

    If you are interested in getting cured of your own illness,

    Below is the communication link of the doctor who has the new medicine which i took that got me cure.

    Dr.Hazim Usman

    Its a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr. Edes, but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed, I was too curious and wanted to try Dr.Edes, then i contacted him through his email (dredeshome@gmail.com) when i contact him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. He sent me his medication and ask me to go for check up after 14 days of taking the medication. i agreed with him and i took his medication and went for check up, to my greatest surprise my result was negative after the treatment, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 3weeks to be very sure i was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Cancer should reach him through his Email dredeshome@gmail.com OR add him on whatsapp 2348151937428.

    City costs increase impounding more derelict watercraft in Mission Bay

    Lifeguard and City Parks and Recreation recently impounded 17 derelict watercraft, then hauled them off to the dump when they weren’t claimed by their owners. “It’s been going on for years and has gotten quite a bit worse — and more expensive,” said Ed Harris, a San Diego lifeguard and Teamsters Local 911 Union member. Unlike car owners, when boat owners abandon their vehicles nobody chases them down, said Harris. “What happens is people buy a boat and don’t put maintenance into it,” he said. “It sits, and then they decide to walk away from it.” Oftentimes, added Harris, those abandoned boats end up left in privately owned marinas in San Diego Bay or Mission Bay. “The city has set aside $200,000 for boats abandoned at Zuniga Jetty,” said Harris. “We have a state grant for $100,000, which we will use for Mission Bay. We allocated another $70,000 recently.” Zuniga Jetty off Zuniga Point is where boat owners can anchor for free. In April, the City Council enacted an ordinance amending San Diego’s Municipal Code to tighten open-water boat anchoring near Zuniga Jetty Shoal, restricting it to two hours. In the past, Harris noted marina owners have sometimes gotten stuck with abandoned boats that he said, “Can be very expensive to get rid of and pay landfill fees, and has led them to cast them off. We’ve seen that. We’ve also seen some people just set their boats adrift.” Other times, pointed out Harris, boats can come loose from their moorings and drift before getting picked up. “Impound fees are high if [owners] don’t come and get their boat,” Harris said. He added, because boats carry gas and oil, which are hazardous materials, that the City can’t haul them away itself, but must contract out for that service. “Lifeguards have been in partnership for years with Parks and Rec, which provides the heavy equipment,” noted Harris. “Every six months or so [Parks and Rec] take [boats] to the dump. Rarely do we have boats that are still seaworthy, that are worth keeping and not going to the trash. “We’re seeing more derelict boats out on the moorings,” said Harris. “Those 17 that were recently in our custody we had for more than 90 days. We provided the property notification, and nobody came to pick them up. So at that point, the burden falls on the City. We take them to the dump. By the end of summer, we may have to impound another 10 to 20 boats. It’s a never-ending process of impounding and disposals.”

    The BSU (Mission Bay), Central (Pacific Beach-Mission Beach), Northern (La Jolla) and Southern (Ocean Beach) lifeguard teams displayed their athleticism, tenacity and dedication to the profession of surf lifesaving by putting on a great show for the observing crowd on Thursday, Aug. 1 at South Mission Beach. The Southern and Northern teams went head-to-head for the first four events with Southern landline swimmer Gabby Thomas plus the landline team inching out Northern to the beach and with round trip swimmers Tore Blichtfelt and Greg Nelsen holding off the Northern swimmers during their allotted swim legs. The momentum swing occurred during the first distance paddle when Northern’s Tristan Sullaway (the evening’s MVP), put 15 seconds between himself and the paddler from Southern. Northern took it from there. The Northern team captain, Kyle Gantz, accepted the relay trophy, which they will host until next summer, and also presented the coveted “relay mugs” to his winning team.
