    Ocean Beach Torrey pine saved A public outcry to spare a 44-inch diameter Torrey pine at 4633 Long Branch Ave. in Ocean Beach from the chopping block has succeeded. “While public safety is foremost in evaluating whether an old, mature tree with defects or health issues should be removed, it’s also important to balance that with the wishes of the surrounding community,” said Anthony Santacroce, City public information officer. “Therefore, the Torrey Pine on Long Branch Avenue will remain in place and will receive corrective pruning to alleviate the weight contributing to the tree’s moderate lean. The tree will also be monitored and evaluated on a regular basis to detect any changes in the health or physical standing of the Torrey pine,” Santacroce said. On Nov. 26, City forester Brian Widener of the city’s Urban Forestry Program emailed the City Forestry Advisory Board advising them that, instead of cutting down the pine, three of its branches would be removed instead, reducing the crown by as much as 15 percent, as well as painting the adjacent curb red. The Torrey pine will be trimmed no sooner than Monday, Dec. 10, Widener said.

It’s New Year’s Eve 1992. With a dreamlike plot, film-obsessed Danny Fleming is watching an old movie at the video store where he works. When he wanders into the back room, Meredith O'Connor appears at the window then sneaks in and hides behind a rack of tapes in order to jump out and surprise Danny. These two haven't seen each other in 20 years, since they were in eighth grade. Danny's dreams of being a writer are all but forgotten and Meredith's two decades as a nun have taken a different direction; for Meredith it’s reminiscent of Maria Von Trapp and for Danny it is making a big splash owning his own cinema. What hasn’t changed is the past – when they were in eighth grade. Featured in this heartfelt love story are local actors Timothy Benson and Sarah LeClair Klacka with direction by Jerry Pilato and technical direction by Jay Maloney. “First Night” takes to the stage at Point Loma Playhouse 3035 Talbot St. at the historic Point Loma Assembly Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. through Dec. 16. Tickets may be purchased at pointlomaplayhouse.com.

The boats will be festively bedecked to align with the parade theme, “Tropical Island Christmas.” The parade begins at 5 p.m. at Shelter Island. The route proceeds to Harbor Island, the North and South Embarcadero areas, then turns south at Cesar Chavez Park and heads toward the Ferry Landing on Coronado. This is the 47th year of the event, which attracts approximately 150,000 spectators to the shoreline of San Diego Bay. The entire procession takes about two hours. Ideal viewing areas for the parade are Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Embarcadero Marina Parks North and South, Cesar Chavez Park and Pier and the Coronado Ferry Landing.

Open registration for spring semester begins Dec. 10 Those interested in jump-starting their educational plans can begin as early as Dec. 10 when open registration for the spring semester begins at the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD).  The 16-week spring semester begins Jan. 28 and runs through May 25. At $46 per unit, student enrollment fees are among the lowest in the country for a higher education system. Most students attending City, Mesa or Miramar College, however, do not have to pay for tuition, thanks to the San Diego Promise, the California College Promise Grant, and other financial aid opportunities. Students can also earn a semester’s worth of credit during the winter intersession which will offer four- and six-week sessions both of which begin from Jan. 2. City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges are offering a variety of classes online and at night to accommodate students’ busy schedules. In addition, City College in the spring will debut renovated A, D, and T buildings – among the last of the Proposition N projects that began nearly a decade ago. The A building renovation features upgraded space for admissions, counseling, financial aid, and other services. Renovation of the D building includes a new roof that will be transformed into student and faculty gathering areas, outdoor furnishings, and landscaping. The T building renovation provides a new home for the engineering department and space for machine technology and a technology incubator. Mesa College, meanwhile, will dedicate a new 57,800-square-foot Center for Business and Technology and a new Fine Arts Building that was constructed within the former I-300 Building. Students can register for classes online. For more information visit the SDCCD admissions page.

    Point Loma High gym receiving a makeover

    The Lee Trepanier Gymnasium at Point Loma High School is getting spruced up for the holidays – and beyond. The indoor athletic facility, one of the largest of any high school in the region, is believed to have been built in the late 1940s. It contains a large balcony with exercise space and many additional bleachers. The bleachers have served thousands of students and audience members well for nearly 70 years, but the main floor bleachers are being replaced. They have already been removed and installation of the new bleachers will begin over the upcoming winter break. Principal Hans Becker said: "It will be about a two-week process. We've scheduled games and practices around the construction – not ideal, but we'll make it work." Teams currently in-season who will be affected include boys and girls basketball and boys and girls wrestling. Already completed in the gym is an artist retouching of the beautiful Point Loma mural that adorns one wall, adding the words "Point Loma" to both baselines, placement of padded cushions with the school logo behind the baskets, painting the school's logo at mid-court, darkening the floor with an arc to mark the three-point shooting distance in prep basketball, a silhouette image of the Cabrillo National Monument on the court and re-staining of the wooden walls. "The floor and improvements look amazing," Becker said. Trepanier was a beloved math teacher at PLHS who coached the girls basketball teams to state championships four consecutive years from1984-87. During that time his teams won 122 games and lost only one. One of Trepanier's players, Sylvia Maas, remains at the school as a biology teacher. Affectionately known as "Coach T," he helped his players who often came to school hungry and provided home telephones to several families who had none. After posting a 335-51 record over 14 seasons, Trepanier was diagnosed with cancer and died in 1991. The gymnasium project is part of the long-range, Proposition S-funded plan for upgrading the school that has already included a new classroom building, conversion of the former wood shop to a music facility, construction of a Motion Picture Facility, weight room, resurfacing of the stadium field, a new stadium scoreboard, adding stadium lighting and a new PA system in the stadium. Security fencing is currently being installed at the campus.

    McMillin sells most of Liberty Station to Southern California real estate firm

    Much of Liberty Station, including the North Chapel, has been sold for nearly $159 million.   Pendulum Property Partners, a Southern California-based real estate firm, in partnership with The Seligman Group, has acquired a long-term leasehold on a number of properties in the 361-acre former Naval Training Center. Pendulum acquired 327,000-square-feet of Liberty Station multi-tenant retail and office space. The property is approximately 98 percent occupied.  The seller, McMillin Cos., retains ownership of one hotel site, two hotels under construction and a number of office assets in the neighborhood. Additional property owners within Liberty Station include the NTC Foundation, the Rock Church, High Tech High and hundreds of homeowners. “The ground lease has been transferred to The Seligman Group/Pendulum Partners as of Nov. 15,” said City senior press secretary Christina Di Leva Chadwick, who noted the sale amount was $158.98 million.  Pendulum’s transaction primarily consists of the retail components – The Quarter, South Point and Arts District – of Liberty Station’s master-planned development.  Alongside popular brands Trader Joe’s, Vons and Starbucks, Pendulum’s other anchor tenants include: Liberty Public Market food hall, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, El Jardín, Corvette Diner, Moniker General, Slater’s 50/50, a nine-hole golf course and a landlocked training ship of the U.S. Navy. Pendulum will continue activation of Liberty Station common areas, as well as upgrading the tenant mix as leases expire.   “San Diego is one of the most diversified economies in the nation and offers many compelling investment characteristics,” said Kevin Hayes, Pendulum managing partner. “Over the past 10 years, countywide growth has outpaced both the state of California and the nation. “Our investment strategy is centered around acquiring well-located assets with the potential to add value over time. Liberty Station fits perfectly within this strategy,” Hayes said.     North Chapel The sale follows on the heels of an ongoing dispute over the possible conversion of historic North Chapel at Liberty Station into a restaurant/entertainment venue. North Chapel, previously used by sailors going off to war, is currently used by two Catholic congregations.  Arguing that the chapel site has been “underutilized,” Liberty Station developer McMillin Cos. previously told both congregations they would continue to be allowed to use the chapel until June. That deadline was later extended until Dec. 31. Hayes said Pendulum has signed a lease with 828 Venue Management Co. to operate North Chapel. “[828 Venue] plan to continue to operate the North Chapel as an event venue, allowing for a wide range of community events throughout the week,” he said. “The venue will continue to be available for weddings, religious gatherings, performances, receptions, and a variety of other events, as permitted in the NTC Precise Plan.” Noting 828 Venue Management Co. understands North Chapel’s historical significance, Hayes added, “They are committed to preserving the historical integrity of the North Chapel, and any tenant improvements that they propose will follow the Department of the Interior’s guidelines for the treatment of historic properties.” Hayes added 828 Venue has reached out to both Catholic groups “to discuss the potential for these congregations to continue to hold their faith celebrations and functions at the North Chapel in the future.” In a letter to The Seligman Group, Mayor Kevin Faulconer wrote: “While no formal application has been submitted to the City for review, I am seriously concerned about any alterations to the chapel’s historically protected characteristics. I oppose any plan that affects the historic nature of the North Chapel … City staff will continue to work proactively with The Seligman Group and the City Attorney’s office to ensure that the chapel remains open to the public and that any future use respects and maintains its historic elements.” Congressman Scott Peters (D-52) and historic preservationists Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO), have both formally requested an investigation by the City Attorney into a commercial lease for the historic church. “We are not giving up on our efforts to save the North Chapel and to encourage the City Attorney to investigate the dealings of the North Chapel and the NTC Foundation,” said Ron Slayen, a Liberty Station Arts District tenant who has been lobbying to block non-religious use of North Chapel. “There may be a new owner of McMillin's ground lease, but the underlying problems and uncertainty remain.” In a memo to City Attorney Mara Elliott, Council President Pro ten Barbara Bry posed a number of legal questions, including whether the City has the authority to compel keeping North Chapel open to the public, and whether the chapel’s interior features can be removed or altered. “We are researching the legal questions presented to us by Councilmember Bry,” said City Attorney spokesperson Hilary Nemchik.

    Garrison Street light show continues, but hot chocolate fundraiser ends

    The annual hot chocolate fundraiser hosted by the Ybarras of Point Loma is no more, but the neighborhood Garrison Street Christmas light show will continue. That was the good — and bad — news this year on the peninsula Yuletide front. “Unfortunately we retired the hot chocolate stand on Garrison. Last year was our final year,” said Carrie Ybarra who, along with husband Kyle, has hosted the fundraiser at their home. “After 18 years, our two daughters are now out of the house and off to college, so we decided that it was the right time to bring it to an end. Although it's bittersweet, we say good bye to our little hot chocolate stand that turned into an amazing community event each year. We can now reflect on the influence we had on so many families in need. We are all pretty proud.” The Garrison Street holiday nighttime Christmas display survives. But the show has been downsized. “The neighborhood has had some recent changes,” noted Carrie Ybarra. “There are a few homes for sale and new folks are moving in, not participating in the light show.” The Ybarra charity hot-chocolate fundraiser started out small with their two daughters setting up a card table in front of their Garrison Street residence. One daughter, now in her 20s, was 6 years old when she and her three best friends set up a small little hot chocolate stand to benefit a young girl in Tijuana they knew who was going to have surgery. They raised about $80 and took that money and bought the girl a Barbie doll and took it to her hospital room. Kyle Ybarra noted there were 18 different fundraising recipients over the years. Those recipients included a victim of domestic violence, a child with brain cancer, a boy who was shot and survived, a juvenile diabetes sufferer and a man who lost his arm in a boating accident. Rady Children's Hospital was a recipient one year.  Like the chocolate fundraiser, the Garrison Street Christmas light display began humbly, with just a small nativity scene.  The holiday tradition was born as a friendly competition some 30 years ago between the Judd family's mother and daughter trying to outdo one another with their holiday displays on the block between Chatsworth Boulevard and Garrison Place. In subsequent years, a Santa was added, then angels and Mickey Mouse characters appeared in windows. Eventually, the event morphed into something more like Disneyland. Every year more and more decorations were added —and new neighbors joined in. The neighborhood’s objective was to represent many beliefs, not just Christmas, so everyone could feel the love and be welcomed.  Last year, in 2017, Garrison Street’s year-end holiday event drew a “major league” sponsor, the San Diego Padres. The team sponsored the decorating of a Garrison Street home participating in the light show with a Padres’ theme. The home was decked out in blue with likenesses of Hall of Fame Padres’ relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman, the Friar and a baseball glove.

    Update: The Garrison Light display is over too! It's a dark street with only a couple houses participating. Definitely not worth a trip.
    Locally-sourced Christmas tree adds to holiday spirit in Ocean Beach

    It’s as quintessentially OB as the Street Fair, farmers market or the mermaid. We’re talking about the annual year’s-end Christmas tree transplanted from elsewhere in the community to the beach near the pier. As usual, Claudia Jack of Ocean Beach MainStreet Association (OBMA) was chair this year of the OB Tree Project. And she has a story to share about this season’s Christmas pine, which was put in place with a crane Nov. 27. “The tree is local, and it was donated by someone who was having problems with the roots undermining their sidewalk, so it had to go,” said Jack, noting the donor’s wish to remain anonymous. On the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 27, San Diego police escorted the truck carrying the tree through the OB community to the foot of Newport Avenue, where a sleeve, or manhole in the sand, had been uncovered and cleaned out specially for it.  Once the tree was settled and placed into the sleeve, it was time to put the electrical wiring in place and add the lights, topping it with a star. Soon to follow were blown-up beach ball decorations hung on the tree. On the Saturday after the tree is planted, this year on Dec. 1, children from local schools will make their annual pilgrimage there to see Santa from 9 a.m. to noon. They will add their own hand-made ornaments to hang on the tree. The tree’s shining moment follows at 5:05 p.m. that same day, when the OB Christmas parade starts.  Jack noted this is the 39th year of the “gifting” of OB’s Christmas tree. It is a tradition born nearly four decades ago started by The James Gang printers, an iconic OB beach business. “Way back when, [OB] had a tree in a planter by the beach growing for two or three years, then it died and somebody set it on fire,” said Jack. “We then moved the tree to Dusty Rhodes Park. But the tree was taken out during storms there 10 or 12 years ago. Ever since, we’ve moved it down to the beach.” The tree remains embedded in the beach until Jan. 2, when it is taken down. “The City chops it up, takes it to Fiesta Island, and turns it into mulch,” said Jack, who added OB’s Christmas tree is a joyful thing at a joyful time of year. “It’s a tree for many, many people, some who don’t have their own tree,” Jack noted. Jack has been double busy this year, working as well on a committee to bring back the mermaid, Marina, to be renamed Vera, who graced Ross Rock at Sunset Cliffs for a time before being absconded. “Marina went for a swim, and never came back,” said Jack, adding her reincarnation is her sister, Vera. “The mermaid will come alive and be in the parade on the lifeguard boat, where she will be paired with 10 little mermaid girls,” she said. Instead of topping a rock, Vera is to be a “guest” rotating between several OB businesses throughout the year in her new role as a community ambassadors and beacon, Jack said.
