The biggest fundraiser of the year raised money for programs that are no longer district-funded, such as music, art and the library.  The school would like to thank community sponsors: Itan, for their contribution toward shirts, and Dominos, who offered a deal on pizzas.

    Mission Bay High - Mission Bay will participate in the National School Walkout, as part of the national protest against gun violence, at 10 a.m. on March 14. The organizers behind the Women’s March are calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10 a.m. across every time zone on March 14 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet “thoughts and prayers” in response to the gun violence plaguing schools and neighborhoods. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep citizens safe from gun violence at schools, on the streets and in their homes and places of worship.  - This year's Pops Concert at Mission Bay High will take place 7 p.m. Thursday, March 8 in the auditorium. The Concert Band, Swing Choir, String and Full Orchestra will perform music from favorite films, musicals and pop standards: “Hamilton,” “Star Wars,” “Moana,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Spider Man” and more. Tickets $5, kids/students free. - Boys basketball coach Marshawn Cherry has provided an inspiring focus on academics and character development by teaming up with MBHS teacher, Dr. Ron Lancia, in a program called ASAP, ACES Student Athlete Program. The team has been studying every day for the past two years and reached their goal of a team GPA above a 3.0 with every player on the team academically eligible. “ACES has greatly improved my work ethic, on and off the court, making sure I get things done correctly and on time,” said forward Michael Barcia. “It has helped me with communicating with teammates and it has brought us closer.” The program provides consistent academic support Mondays through Thursdays in the Mission Bay library. Established in 2013, the program provides assistance in English, history, math, science and special populations, including English language learners, special education, IB and art, and access to technology resources. ACES furnishes an array of holistic services, including social-emotional support, college readiness and self-advocacy through leadership-building seminars, workshops on health-related topics and access to school counselors.

The festivities began the week of Feb. 5, with traditional Chinese lion dancers, a beloved ritual at Barnard that never loses its magic. On Feb. 9, students from each classroom staged elaborate cultural performances that highlighted a variety of Chinese arts, including poetry, martial arts, and dance. The show drew rave reviews from parents, district officials, and the school’s long-time Mandarin education partners at the Confucius Institute at SDSU. Barnard held its annual free, community-wide Chinese New Year celebration on Feb. 10, festival attendees enjoying food, hours of entertainment, and fun games throughout the day. “I am so proud and grateful to be a Barnard parent,” said Deval Zaveri, who has two students enrolled at the school. - Next up is the downtown Chinese New Year Festival on Feb. 24 and 25, where Barnard’s recitation and dance troupes will take to the main stage each day. Barnard will also be represented by its student ambassadors at a nearby booth.

    Massive Mavericks Beach Club riding waves of anticipation

    The community said goodbye to Pacific Beach Bar and Grill a few years ago, and it’s about time to welcome a new and improved entertainment venue to Garnet Avenue. Located on a 15,000-square-foot property, Mavericks Beach Club will provide both daytime and nighttime amusement for PBers. “We’ve created Mavericks to pay homage to California’s largest surf break and one of the world’s top surfing destinations. Mavericks captures and celebrates California’s infectious beach and surf culture,” said Eric Lingenfelder of Verant Group. He has teamed up with Mark Cirillo and David Cohen to bring the new neighborhood attraction to life. After purchasing the former PB Bar and Grill in spring 2015, the building was completely torn down for a full remodel. With a brand new design and architecture plan headed by Bluemotif Architecture, Mavericks’ two-story party playground is filled with ample space for dancing, dining, and drinking. Visitors can expect outdoor games, cocktails, food, flat screen TVs, sports, a dance club, and plenty of open-air seating.  Verant Group is no stranger to the bustling bar / restaurant scene in San Diego. Their other locations around town include barleymash, Tavern at the Beach, Sandbar Sports Grill, True North Tavern, Westroot, The Smoking Gun, and a downtown coffeeshop called Spill the Beans. Bluemotif Architecture has also been the mastermind behind San Diego favorites Kettner Exchange, The Crack Shack, Queensborough, and the newly popular Green Acre/ Campus Pointe. With the expertise and experience of the Verant Group and Bluemotif collaboration, it’s no surprise Mavericks looks like a Hamptons beach getaway retreat, basking in modern luxury design. The venue’s crisp white architecture radiates a light and airy feel, while the market-lights add an intimate, cozy appeal to the giant space. Decked out with contemporary coastal decor and community seating via round tables, the bar presents a laid-back, but still sophisticated, local vibe. Visiting during the cooler months? Don’t fret- there are plenty of cozy spots around the fireplaces located outside. Mavericks Beach Club is set to be an ultimate party destination, dawning five full bars and Baja-inspired lunch and dinner menus. Think tacos (of course), burgers, sandwiches, entrees, and small plates paired with kombuchas, craft beers, wines, and freshly curated cocktails. Lingenfelder also points out that the venue will offer live entertainment and other various events, which sets it apart from most venues in PB. “We have an exciting lineup of entertainment events planned for 2018, including block parties with DJs and national touring bands.” Perhaps one of the coolest parts about Mavericks? It has a bike valet. Enough said! The community is ready to stop by for a cocktail… or two. Mavericks Beach Club Where: 860 Garnet Ave. Hours: Grand opening scheduled for March 1.

    Pacific Beach residents fed up with ongoing pipeline project

    Some Pacific Beach residents are becoming increasingly perturbed by alleged collateral damage from an infrastructure project that has the beach community torn up from seemingly endless construction. At issue is the ongoing Pacific Beach Pipeline South and West Projects, which are replacing nearly 39,000 linear feet of water main, and nearly 6,800 feet of sewer main, with new, 16-inch PVC mains. The project, which began July 2016 and is scheduled to conclude October 2019, at a total projected cost of slightly more than $34 million, is estimated to take 55 months to complete.  TC Construction Co. is executing the construction project on Ingraham Street, which cuts across the Pacific Beach, Midway-Pacific Highway and Mission Bay Park areas. Next Door social media in Pacific Beach has been lit up lately with complaints/questions about pipeline construction and its alleged negative impacts to the community. “The pipe dig/installation schedule is ridiculous, but my real question is why the street resurfacing after the pipe installation takes so long?” asked Rick Burroughs of PB North. “It seems pretty obvious this project is lacking oversight. Ingraham through Crown Point has been torn up for years … It’s dangerous and embarrassing.” “I realized they have to change the pipes,” said Erik Eisenhardt. “But it would be nice if, when [the contractor] finished in one area, they would pave the streets and move to the next. It’s just a nightmare. All the streets are torn up.”  “The patchwork is terrible,” said Dan Bernard. “Ingraham felt like the Belmont roller coaster.” Russell Watson of PB North Shore Highlands concurred. “The worst road work I’ve ever seen,” Watson said. “The repair work is horrible. They should be doing the whole street instead of patchwork.” City spokesman Alec Phillipp discussed the pipeline project’s budget and timeline. “We are currently on schedule to have the project completed in late 2019, but this schedule is subject to change,” Phillipp said. “The project is still on budget, with the full construction contract amount being $34.2 million.” Phillips said the contractor is “currently installing pipe on Ingraham Street between the two bridges near Vacation Island, and continuing work on the north bridge.” Phillip added, “Looking forward, the contractor will continue pipe installation in West Mission Bay Drive, and install the last segment of pipe in West Point Loma Boulevard.” Not all public reaction to pipeline construction has been negative.  Crown Point Drive resident Anabelle described construction workers as “courteous, polite and very caring. They have been working in front of my house for over a month and display professionalism … accommodate our three kids constantly … offered my in-laws ear plugs … They work hard and really know what they are doing.” “All these cast-iron pipes need to be replaced in the street and on our properties and the whole city is facing the same problem,” said David Clausson in east PB. “Just so happens that time is now.” Marilyn Link in southwest PB has also been impressed by pipeline work being done on east/west side streets.  “They get in there, and get it done,” Link said. “The detours are minor … their notifications to residents have given ample warning, and the engineering and planning for such a massive project is mind boggling.” But there have been problems other than excessive dust, noise and traffic dislocation caused by ongoing pipeline replacement. D. Pierce, a seasonal resident in the 1400 block of Thomas Avenue, said, “We have yet to see a street sweeper in the past three months … The traffic barricades are in my driveway … I called the city street sweeping department and they admit that they cannot do the job when there are temporary water lines.  Obviously, the parking enforcement people didn’t get the memo.” Added Pierce, “It would be interesting to see how much money the city has collected in parking tickets based on the fact that there was no need to enforce the laws, as the streets were never swept due to the construction.” The city parking enforcement division could not be reached by Beach & Bay Press for comment by press time. PB resident Matt Phillips of Crown Point North has also taken action, and is actively collecting signatures on the 1500 block of Oliver Avenue and Haines Street demanding the removal of equipment to reclaim lost parking spaces from pipeline work. Speaking for many on pipeline construction, Sean Brew noted: “I live in Crown Point and there is a ton of major construction projects that seem endless — streets dug up, Ingraham Street bridge, a big barge in Mission Bay. It would be great to have more info on what they are doing, and when they plan to finish.”

    Beachgoers flock to the new trend: Bird scooters

    Heard of car or bike share? Now there’s scooter share in Pacific Beach. Black-hued “Bird” Segway Kickscooter ES1 Electric Scooters, retailing for $399, are seemingly everywhere these days along the beachfront. The 30- to 40-pound dockless electric scooters, capable of speeds up to 15 mph, are available through a scooter-share service via a smartphone app. The scooter-share startup, Bird, was begun by Travis VanderZanden, who was previously an executive with Uber and Lyft ride sharing. Launched in September 2017, tens of thousands of people have already ridden Bird. The company started in Los Angeles, and has since spread from Venice Beach down to San Diego. Bird plans to branch out to dozens of other markets this year. In Pacific Beach and elsewhere along the San Diego coast, the new mode of transportation played to mostly mixed reviews. “Bird scooters could be a unique opportunity to offer an alternative transportation model, and last-mile commutes that align with our eco-district principles, while mitigating some of Pacific Beach’s parking and traffic issues,” said Sara Berns, executive director of Discover PB, the community’s business improvement district. “However, we want to ensure that the company and its ridership are adhering to public safety concerns, and that of our merchants.  “We have reached out to work with the company to help alleviate some of those issues to ensure they are not impeding on our existing business community, but rather enhancing it,” she said. “We look forward to them working with us and the community at- large.” Dan Michaels, a Pacific Beach business owner, turned his thumbs down on the new alternative ride share service. “These new electric scooters for rent all over PB is getting annoying,” said Michaels on the Next Door social media site. “They are leaving them everywhere and [they’re] allowed to operate without a business license. Riders are intoxicated renting them, under age, and don't obey any laws of the road. Then when finished, they are leaving them in front of doors, ramps, etc.” Michaels pointed out Pacific Beach has “fought hard to remove bike share stations (Deco renamed DiscoverBike) from the boardwalk. This company thinks they can just establish these in the same places. What can we do next to stop this before someone gets hurt.” There are numerous rules in the California Vehicle Codes applying to the safe and proper use of electric scooters like Bird. Police warn they will issue citations for a range of violations, costing between $197 and $367, for non-lawful operation of such scooters. Citable scooter offenses include: driving while intoxicated, not having headlights and reflectors at night, not riding on the right-hand edge of roadways, exiting bike lanes without signaling, not having brakes, riders not wearing mandatory bicycle helmets, and not allowing passengers, among other restrictions. When finished, Bird users lock them in place at their end destination. Scooters employ GPS and an electric lock restricting wheel movement. If tampered with, an alarm is triggered on the vehicle locking its wheels in place and making them unridable.

    If you live in San Diego, you probably recognize a few required living essentials: sunscreen, swimsuits, sandals and, according to San Diego State University graduate and entrepreneur Chase Fisher, you must have “a good pair of shades.” But sunglasses that are both affordable and of good quality can be hard to come by – a challenge met with enthusiasm by Fisher’s Pacific Beach-based business. Since 2012, his sunglasses company Blenders Eyewear has been selling “fresh, vibrant, comfortable” shades and goggles in store and online. According to Fisher, it’s the active lifestyle of San Diego that inspires the product. Their motto, “Founded on Fun. Designed for Adventure. Priced to Party,” says it all. Blender Eyewear’s sunglasses are priced between about $20 and $65 and are made to be light-weight with maximum comfortability. The polycarbonate lenses, all of which are UV-protected, can bend without breaking so they’re convenient to wear for any occasion. “We try to get the best stuff at the best price we can, and bring the best value,” Fisher said. Fisher says he was inspired to open the business by the gear he saw others wearing when he surfed competitively in his home town of Santa Barbara. The active San Diego lifestyle also inspired the products But the true “ah-ha” moment, as Fisher puts it, was when he was in a night club sporting $5 neon green sunglasses. According to him, his cheap glasses attracted as much attention as they would have if they’d been expensive name brand glasses, sparking his business idea for quality shades that wouldn’t require customers to “spend their entire bank account.” Blenders offers a diverse line of styles to fit everyone’s taste, from the bold tropical patterned Kate Forest sunglasses with blue and green lenses to the more subtle Surfliner sunglasses with the light blue rims and black lenses. Often times, the most popular sunglasses will sell out quickly, but being out of stock doesn’t tend to pose a problem, says customer success manager Lexi Horn. A different pair rises up immediately to become the new favorite. “I’m really confident in our brand,” she says. On each pair of sunglasses is the company’s logo: a pair of stripes “//,” which symbolizes “life in forward motion.” “It’s following your passion, whatever that might be,” said Fisher about the logo’s meaning. “We try to design our glasses around any possible lifestyle.” The company promotes fun and adventure, but sunglasses sales aren’t without their challenges. According to Fisher, it’s a competitive market with continuously shifting trends that are difficult to keep up with. With production timelines taking between 90 and 120 days, he says the changes in popular styles aren’t something that can be easily planned for. Horn adds that the company commonly has to “fix things on the fly,” but that the customers have remained loyal through the adjustments. For the Blenders Eyewear team, the rewards of the business outshine the challenges. “For me, the most fulfilling thing is just adding value to people’s lives,” says Fisher. “I think our product really allows people to express themselves.” The future of Blenders Eyewear will include a new kids line, limited edition projects, and an expansion of both the snow goggles and sunglasses line, according to Fisher. The Blenders Eyewear office is located in Pacific Beach at 1940 Garnet Ave. It is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during weekdays and closed on weekends. Blenders Eyewear Where: 1940 Garnet Ave. No. 240. Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, closed weekends. Info: blenderseyewear.com.
